THE ELECTWX RKSVLTB
The results of Tuesday's elections
should command the earnest attention
of the American people. There Is sug
gested in them lessons which are of
the greatest significance and which all
who are Interested In political affnlrs
ought to study carefully. Primarily
they suggest the great power of public
opinion and the general readiness of
the people to approve policies and prin
ciples that fire manifestly fair and Just.
There Is conveyed In some of the re
sults an assurance of popular resent
ment against corruption In public life
that Is In the highest degree satisfac
tory. This is conspicuously shown in
the result of the Philadelphia election.
The powerful political machine which
for years bas controlled the affairs of
that city, becoming more and more
rapacious and unscrupulous from year
to year, has been completely overthrown
and in all probability will never be able
to again resume the power it has now
lost. This will do no harm, but rather
good, to the republican party, because
the credit of it Is due to that party. It
was republican' votes that redeemed
Philadelphia from the rule of an un
scrupulous and corrupt bosslsra. Every
republican paper In that city, with a
single exception, was arrayed against
the "machine" and the most prominent
republicans were In accord with the
Another lesson, though perhaps less
significant and impressive, because dif
ferent conditions obtained there, Is seen
in the, result In Ohio. The democratic
victory In that state is to n large ex
tent attributable to popular resentment
against a republican boss who for years
has dominated the party in Cincinnati
and who only a few weeks ago was
publicly denounced by Secretary Taft
ns a man who ought to be repudiated
by the party. "While it is true that the
republican candidate. Governor Her
rlck, had antagonized elements which
two years ago supported him, it is still
a fact that the bosslsm of Cox, who
represented the corporations, was a very
potent influence in determining the re
sult of the election. The popular ver
dict in Ohio is not against republican
principles and policies, lut against a
bosslsm that had become utterly ob
noxious to thousands of republicans
who, like Secretary Taft, felt that the
time hnd come to overthrow It. No in
telligent student of political affairs can
fall to understand the significance of
the result of Tuesday's election In Ohio,
While the result of the election In
New York City Is at this writing unde.
termined, the meaning of the very large
vote cast for Mr. Hearst, exceeding by
many thousands the highest estimates
made before the election, is apparent
It was a popular protest against the
arrogance and the rapacity of great
corporations and the corruption in pub
He affairs in that great city. It is an
expression of dissatisfaction with lexist
ing conditions which ought to bave a
potent influence for reform not only
there, but wherever similar conditions
in any degree prevail. The insurance
disclosures, for one thing, had no little
to do with contributing to the Hearst
vote and it is evident that not a few
republicans gave their support to him.
All this Is suggestive of a change In
popular sentiment which those who take
an Interest in politics should give heed
to. It means a revolt against losslsm.
machine domination and the dictation
and control of corporations which
promises a new order of things gen
erally In political affairs. The manifest
trend Is toward the reform and eleva
tion of American politics, toward a
change that will eliminate from our
politics the corrupting and debasing
conditions and Influences which have so
long prevailed and were steadily grow
ing worse. The lessons of Tuesday's
elections should receive the careful cor.
sideratlon of all our neonle.
IMPORT OF THE REPUBLICAN VICTORY.
The campaign in Nebraska has
culminated In a more sweeping repub
lican majority than has ever been reg'
istered in any off year since its admis
sion Into the union. While the triumph
ant election of Judge Letton and the
republican candidates for university
regents had been a foregone conclusion,
the decisive majorities by which more
than three-fourths of the counties of
this state have been carried for local
republican candidates, and esieclally
the overwhelming majority by which
Douglas county has been -swept, sur
passes the most sanguine expectations.
Two years ago Judge Sullivan, the
fusion candidate for supreme judge, car
ried Douglas county by a plurality of
2(14. This year Douglas county gives
Judge Letton, the republican candidate
for supreme judge, a majority over
3,700. Two years ago the democrats
elected F. A. Broadwell clerk of the
district court, John Power 6herlff and
John Drexel county clerk. This year
every republican candidate on the
county ticket bas been elected by ma
jorities ranging from 400 to 4,200. These
figures alone emphasize the revolution
In Douglas county. .
Conceding that this year's campaign
In Nebraska bad little bearing upon
issues that divide the two great par
ties on national affairs, the tremendous
republican majorities afford tangible
proof of popular satisfaction with exist
ing prosperous conditions and a general
trend favorable to the dominant party.
Before the campaign grows cold, sev
eral of the mis-statements In the postal
card sent out over the Fontauelle name
should be corrected. In the first place, it
is not true that people who failed to
register cannot vote for mayor next
spring there will be another registra
tion day before the city election. In
the second place, it Is not true that
people who failed to register cannot
vote at the primaries and election next
fall by registering for the city election
in the spring, the voter will be able to
qualify himself for the fall. Failure to
register this time will only debar voters
from participating in the spring primar
ies unless they have good excuses that
will procure special registration before
the city primary.
Tho defeat of the proposed amend
ment to the Maryland constitution, pro
viding for the disfranchisement of the
colored citiiens of the state will be
gratifying to all who believe that the
negro should be secure in his political
rights. So unjustifiable and Indefensi
ble was this attempt to deprive the
colored citizens of Maryland of the suf
frage that some of the most prominent
democrats of the state, among them Sen
ator Rayner and Governor Warfleld,
took an active part In opposition to the
amendment and it Is needless to say
exerted a very great Influence. No re
publican was more vigorous in denoun
cing the proposition than was Mr. Ray
ner, who In a most convincing way
pointed out tho great outrage which It
Involved . not only to the negroes, tut
as well to all citizens of alien parent
age. The result Is a victory for those dem
ocrats who opposed the amendment that
will give them the leadership of their
party and relegate Mr. Gorman and his
adherents to the rear. The responsibil
ity for the disfranchising movement
rests wholly with Senator Gorman.
Therefore its defeat is a repudiation of
him as a leader which probably will
terminate his political career. Although
he bas been regarded as the leader of
his party in the national senate, Mr.
Gorman has In fact had little Influence
there and he will now have less. His
colleague, Rayner, who was elected
to the senate in spite of Gorman's op
position, Is likely to exert more influ
ence than the latter. Indeed, it Is said
that the senate democrats look for great
things from him In the next six years.
The verdict of the people of Mary
land against disfranchisement of the
colored citizens of the state is not the
least Important and significant of tlie
results of Tuesday's elections.
It will be three years next January
since Howell's compulsory water works
purchase bill was engineered and rail
roaded through the state legislature.
The avowed object was to expedite the
acquisition of the water works by the
city of Omaha. Hie mandate was that
the works be acquired Immediately, but
all that has been acquired up to date
is a long drawn suit in the courts, a
salaried Water board whose members
are drawing pay, although the city bas
no water works to manage, and fat jobs
for special attorneys milking the cow,
while the board and the water company
are pulling at the horns and tail ot the
animal. That Is all that bas been done
in three years. Without the intrusion,
of the compulsory bill, the city could
have had the works appraised under
eminent domain and taken possession of
them two years ago, and If the water
company had" refused to accept , the
award made by the appraisers It would
have had to go to the courts to adjudi
cate Its claims, while the city would
have been operating the works. But
that would not have given the water
spouters an opportunity to fabricate
political capital for themselves and tap
the city water fund for thousands of
dollars, under pretext that they are ex
pediting municipal ownership.
Additional train service is to be In
stalled on several of the railroads be
tween Omaha and Chicago and Omaha
and St. Paul, but these additional facili
ties are of comparatively small import'
ance to Omaha. What Omaha wants is
better train facilities on the lines to the
west, especially better mail facilities for
the newspapers. As It Is now, people in
Nebraska and South Dakota are obliged
to be content with early editions that do
not contain the full news of the day or
late editions that do not reach them
until the next day, while the Chicago
dullias, transported by fast mail, reach
Nebraska and South Dakota points al
most as soon as the Omaha dallies.

A SIGNIFICANT SPEECH.
Senator Knox Lines I'p with the
President on Rate Regulation.
The speech of Senator Knox at the Cham
ber of Commerce banquet las night on the
subject of railroad rate regulation was na
tional In its scope and significance. It has
the greater weight from the memory of the
former speech of the senator before the
same body, when as attorney general he
pointed out how the law can pe . made
effective against combinations In restraint
of trade and competition, and the way In
which he subsequently demonstrated his
view of the law before the courts. When
such an authority takes up the rate Issue
his utterances are of the utmost Import.
In his speech the senator punctures the
sophistries and misrepresentations by which
the railroad Interest has attempted to be
cloud the Issue and oppose the policy
urged by President Roosevelt. He showed
that no railroad has anything to fear from
the law unless It Is wedded to unjust and
unreasonable practices; refuted the mlsrep
resentatlon that It Is proposed to vest any
department of the government with the
general rate-making power; demonstrated
how the corporate Interests are protected
by the right of appeal from hasty or In
Jurlous findings, and pointed out that the
corporate alternative of a final decision on
rates by the I'nlted States courts conflicts
with the constitutional theory as laid down
by the courts.
These are the views that the Dispatch
has maintained since the controversy be
gan. It is true that with the proposed en
actment passed the railroads are better
safeguarded against hasty action than the
shippers are against delayed and costly
litigation. But as this Is the only advance
toward efficiency, possible under govern
mental regulation, it is gratifying to have

The Increase In real estate valuations on
Fifth avenue and the abutting streets from
1SSS to 1005 Is ona of the most remarkable
evidences of growth of New York, says the
Metropolitan Mngaelne. Investors in Fifth
avenue property found that they had made
a fortune almost over night; residents who
had purchased their houses only five years
ago for, say, $28,000 and 150,000, suddenly
found that there was a ready market for
them at $100,000 and $150,000. An Interesting
evidence of the rise In realty values Is fur
nished by the famous Captain Cook block
at Seventy-eighth and Seventy-ninth
streets. Fifth and Madison avenue. This
property was part of a farm owned by Rob
ert Lenox he of the great library abutting
in the days when Fifth avenue was not the
old Middle road. Mr. Lenox had a great
opinion of this particular farm; and, In his
famous will cautioned his heirs not to sell
It, as one day there would be a village on
it! In J87X:aptaln H. If. Cook-agalnst the
advice of his friends purchased the entire
block, then far removed from the fashiona
ble section, for $000,000. Upon this block to
day stand Mr. Cook's own elaborate house,
and those of Isaac D. Fletcher, Payne
Whitney, Stuyvesant Fish. Frederick Geb
hard and E. C. Converse. An expert In
real estate recently estimated the land
alone In this block as worth $10,000,000, and
the houses upon It at $10,000,000 more, a to
tal valuation of $:'0,000.000. Mr. Lenox's
early dreams of a "village," it will bo ob
served, are in a fair way toward realisation.
The appearance of the busiest sections
of the Panama canal Is reproduced In real
istic fashion within a block of Broadway,
where the Pennsylvania railroad depot will
be built. The Immense tract bounded by
Seventh and Ninth avenues and Thirty
first and Thirty-second streets today Is a
very anthill for activity. As quickly as the
buildings disappeared from this once closely
populated district an Immense amount of
excavating machinery was Installed. Rail
road tracks were laid In every direction and
tne ground soon lost all semblance of Its
former civilization. Today the resemblance
to the canal lone is complete. The land
once reduced to the dead level of stone
pavements and asphalted streets has been
ridged and furrowed until Its original topo
graphy Is but a memory. Long, uneven al

A form of petty "grafting" by customs
officers at this port has aroused the in
dignation of ship captains, and the atten
tion of the Washington authorities, doubt
less, will be directed to the matter.
When a vessel comes here from a for
eign port It has to be watched night and
day by the customs officers, who are sup
posed to see that no contraband comes
ashore. The night customs officers go on
duty about G o'clock. Some night customs
men have come to look upon it as their
right to collect their dinners from the ves
sels to which they are assigned. They turn
up about 6 o'clock, seat themselves in the
officers' chairs at the mess table, and de
mand their dinners. And they want the
best that is going and prompt service. If
they do not get it It is easy enough to
make the ship suffer. The Inspectors will
examine every pound of freight with the
greatest minuteness, and present complaints
frequent and loud.
Recently two of them became so bold In
Jorsey City that when objection was made
to their getting their dinner on the vessel
they arrested the superintendent of the
pier on s charge of smuggling. He was
searched, nothing was found, and nothing
happened to him. It was simply part of
the business to make the ships supply the
To lay down three aces and then find

nothing more than a pair of fours was the
experience of a tourist in the smoking
room of the French liner La Touralne on
Its last voyage to New York. The winner of
the pot is said to be George A. Kessler.
There were five players, and one of them
opened a Jack pot on two pairs, nines high.
Everybody stayed except a western man.
The pot was opened for 110, and the man to
the left of the opener, having three aces pat,
straddled the opener. When It came to Mr.
Kessler's turn he Is said to have remarked:
"I don't know what license I have In with
this dinky little pair, but I'm game."
The opener bet $5 on his two pairs, the
player with three aces raised the opener
Mr. Kessler's hand saw the three ace
man's raise and lifted him 200 francs. Ths
ace player "boosted" back and they
"hoisted" each other until the three aces
were laid down.

Of sweet endearment; the slim lily band.
Challred of snow and amber, that expand
What time the sun Is a benignant sphere
All these have bowed before death s dark
Around us lies the ruin of the year!
Thick are the orchard leaves on moss and
The Hesperldun fruit, of Julcv ore.
