It la said that a difference of opinion
apparently exists between tire president
and the secretary of the navy on the
subject of naval extension. According
to reports from 'Washington. Secretary
Bonaparte is opposed to a big navy and
has decided t reject the recommenda
tion of the general board for the con
struction of three new battleships of
18,000 tons and the increase to the same
displacement of some of the battleship
already authorized. It is uiulerstood
that this plan w as adopted by the board
In support of the president's desire for
a strong naval program. It was ex
pected to meet with opposition In con
gress and if the attitude of the secre
tary of the navy Is as stated the con
gressional opposition is very likely to
The report is that Secretary Bona
parte believes that the navy is strong
enough for the present and that it is
sufficient to add a new ship when one
of the old ones goes out of date or be
comes Inefficient. If this correctly
states the attitude of the secretary he
will find a great hiany in" accord with
him. When the warships already au
thorized' are completed and put in com
mission the United States will be third
In rank among the naval powers, which
is a better position than It was thought
twenty years ago It would ever attain
to. When the work of naval upbuilding
was entered upon there was no inten
tion to construct so large a nary as
we now have. There was no idea of
expending so great a sum in the crea
tion of a navy as has been put into war
vessels. All that was contemplated was
a naval establishment adequate for do
mestic defense. Of course conditions
since then have changed. There has
been territorial expansion and an en
largement of our Interests which require
a greater naval force than lx-fore.
Moreover, other nations ' ha vo iu the
meantime Ix-on increasing their sea
power and are still adding to it. These
conditions have made necessary a
greater Increase of the American navy
than was contemplated when the work
of creating a navy was started. We
have done well in this respect and,
having accomplished so much the ques
tion is whether we should not now cull
a halt, or' at least materially modify
the policy of naval construction which
has been pursued for the pust quarter
of a century.
Few will question the wisdom of
having a strong navy and that we al
ready possess. The point is whether
there Is any sound reason for continuing
to add to It. It would seem to be quite
sufficient to have reached the position
of third In rank among the naval
powers, especially In view of the fact
that those powers which are superior
to us In this respect are upon the- most
friendly relations with the United
States and are not likely ever to have
a serious quarrel with this country. The
views of Secretary Bonaparte lu this
matter. If as represented, will exert a
great deal of influence upon public
OMAHA AKD KANSAS C1TT
In a series of articles reviewing the
fight for fair railroad rates, contributed
by Cbester Arthur Legg to the Boston
Evening Transcript, nearly a whole page
of that paper is devoted to Omaha and
Kansas City. These two cities are
highly complimented as the commercial
emporiums of the "vast Inland commer
cial empire extending from northern Ne
braska to Texas and from the Missouri
river to the Rocky mountains," but their
growth and their grip on the commerce
of the transmlssourl region is ascribed
to unfair discrimination on the part of
railway traffic managers In order to
build them up as basic points for job
bers and manufacturers. Aa a matter
of fact they owe their commercial and
Industrial growth chiefly to the pluck,
push, enterprise and public spirit of
their business men, and Incidentally to
the marvelous resources of the region
tributary to them.
Like all superficial observers whose
opinions are formed by surface Indica
tions, Mr. Legg represents Kansas City
as "the one city where all the commer
cial organizations are against the. presi
dent's policy," while public opinion
among the business men of Omaha Is
represented as very nearly unanimous.
This false impression concerning the al
leged opposition to national rate regula
tion was created by interviews with half
a dozen extra heavy favored shippers
who happen, aa it were, to be officers in
the commercial bodies of Kansas City,
while the rank and file Is absolutely at
variance with those officials. The same
Is true with the rank and tile of the com
mercial bodies of Omaha.
The most striking proof of the . real
sentiment of the business men of Kan
sas City on government regulation of
railroads was furnished by the bound
less enthusiasm In favor of the presi
dent's policy exhibited by 275 members
of the Knife and Fork club. ,yvho are
nearly all prominently identified with
the commercial bodies of Kansas City,
and their emphatic repudiation of their
alleged antagonism to ihe supervision
and regulation of railways as repre
sented in the Boston Transcript.
It goes without saying that the busi
ness men of Kansas City, like the busi
ness men of Omaha, kuow that they
have had to flgbt for neatly all the
favors and concessions they have ever
received at the bauds of transportation
companies. While rei'Ognizlng and ac
knowledging that the railways have
been great factors in the upbuilding ot
the two gate cities of the Missouri val
ley, it is a matter of history that they
have frequently had to overcome serious
obstacles placed in their way by prefer
ential rates and uujust differentials. In
Kansas City, as in Oruaba, there is a
very pronounced public sentiment in
favor of the square deal, let the chips
fall where they may.
.4 A.7.VO F(H SHWAr.
By a very largo majority the people
of Norway decided that they preferred
a monarchy to a rejn, u: and this
popular verdict has been rati tied by the
Norwegian parliament, which on Satur
day last unanimously chose Trlnce
Charles of Iienmark to to king of Nor
way. This is a return to old ties, Nor
way having, for more than four cen
turies prior to the union with Sweden,
been united with Ieumark under the
same sovereign. Thus the election of
iTlnce Charles brings Norway back to
Denmark as Its closest friend and neigh
bor among the nations.
The man who has been chosen ns the
head of the new kingdom Is spoken of
as an amiable sort of person, who will
not interfere in the laws that Norway
may find it necessary to enact. It Is
also pointed out that It Is a very limited
kind of monarchy to which the Danish
prince has leen elected. He will prac
tically be not much more than a perma
nent president, with a very independent
parliament to carry on the government
and a very democratic nation to Insist
that it shall be carried on to the popu
lar acceptance. In other words the Nor
wegian king will be little more than a
figurehead, receiving from the people
the respect due to his station, but ex
ercising no particular Influence upon
affairs. Alout all that will be asked or
expected of him Is that he wear his
crown gracefully and deport himself
with becoming dignity.
The friends of republican government
everywhere will regret that the Nor
wegian people preferred a monarchy to
a republic, but there is reason to doubt
if Norway Is In a position to undertake
iho risks that would be Involved in the
establishment at this time of a separate
republic. It has been said that neither
Russia nor Germany would look on such
an experiment with favor, and Norway
as a republic would be without natural
allies to protect her independence. As
It is. the new king will have the support
not only of Denmark, but also of Eng
land, lu u family alliance that will
strengthen the more important relations
on which Norway must rely. As a mat
ter of practical policy, therefore, the
election of Prince Charles must be re
garded as judicious and there appears
to 1m no reason to apprehend that it
will result in any curtailment of the
liberties of the Norwegian people.
During the last few hours of its ses
sion the American Federation of Lalxr
convention declared itself iu favor of
womau's suffrage as a necessary step
toward securing the proper scale of
wages for women. How woman's suf
frage would raise the scale of wages for
women workers has not yet lceu demon
strated. Practical experience with
woman suffrage lu Utah, Wyoming and
Colorado does not Justify the' expecta
tion. In these states women have not
even been able to raise the price of
votes, but on the contrary have only
beared the market by an increase in the
number of merchantable voters.
While Omaha jobliers and manufac
turers are aonfldently looking forward
to a profitable extension of their trade In
the North Platte country that is to be
opened by the extension of the Union
Pacific and Burlington, and the Big
norn region to be Invaded by the North
western, they appear to be oblivious of
the fact that a large section in southern
Nebraska, nearer Omaha than Kansas
City, pnd a large section in northeastern
Nebraska nearer to Omaha than to
Sioux City and St. Faul, are being sup
plied from rival commercial centers be

The Washington correspondents have
an unusually easy task this year to
guess at the contents of the president's
forthcoming message. The president
has been himself freely outlining his
views on current legislative topics In
the speeches he delivered at various
points of his southern tour and it is
therefore safe to predict that In his mes
sage he will take the same position in
the same forceful way. The only open
question is how many subjects he will
cover and to what degree of detail he
will discuss them.
The market house should either be
improved, enlarged and made what It
was designed to le a place where peo

it should le demolished. The proposed
leasing of the market house for sport or
storage is utterly inexcusable, in view
of the fact that the building occupies
the center of a public thoroughfare and
could not have been legally placed there
except with the idea that it was dedi
cated to a public pui-(ose.

Kansas City Times.
In spite of the belief, lately grown rather
general, that congress will enact a railway
measure, and a good one, too, It Is an
nounced from authoritative sources that
the railway Interests are preparing to make
a hard fight In the senate for the perpetu
ation of their social privileges. Neverthe
less, the chances are that when the time
crimes there will be a submission, even on
the part of some of the railway representa
tives, to tho Inevitable.
It would be remarkable, for example, If
such men as Samuel Spencer, James J.
Hill, Lucius Tuttle and other railway lead
ers who are accredited with fine man
agerial capacity, haa not also a pretty clear
comprehension of the political significance
of the times. From the purely selfish stand
point that such men view political and ad
ministrative life, their policy should -be
something like this: Fool the people as
long as you can, but when they will no
longer be fooled, give them anything In
reason lest they demand and ultimately se.
cure that which is unreasonable.
It ought to he apparent right now that
the railroads hav utterly failed to fool
the people. The masses are determined to
have a better regulation of railway rates,
a fairer distribution oX the benefits of the
corporations they have created. There are
various degrees to which this clamor,
should it spread in scope and grow In
strength, might run. These degrees range
all the way from the reasonable policy ad
vocated by the president to the experi
mental and unsafe scheme of government
ownership. Public aentlment is so far
against the stand of the railroads and
those shippers who have benefited by dl
crlnilnatton that when the fight is on In
the senate the leaders of the opposition
will realize, us they have not yet realized,
that even their representatives In the up
per bouse must npenty choose between
( honor and dishonor.

be hesitating between the railroads and
the people. He may hesitate for a time,
but the railroads will land him In the

Beatrice Sun: There is talk nf getting
up a petition asking Senator Millard to
stand by the president in what he wants
in the way of railroad legislation. Wc quite
agree with the Lincoln News, that trre
is no demand for such petition. Senator
Millard knows the sentiment upon this
point in Nebraska, or. If he does not, he
is Incompetent to represent the people of
this state. There is a demand for law
that will make It possible for the people
to get a square deal.

St. Paul Republican: A very large ma
jority of Senator Millard's constituents In
all parties will be disappointed to know
that he has declined to place himself on
record favorably to President Roosevelt's
policy for the regulation of railroad rates.
As a member of the committee on Inter
state commerce, tho senator Is In a position
to assist the administration very materially;
on the other hand. If so disposed, his power
for obstruction Is equally great. His re
luctance to express an opinion on account
of his connection with this committee Is
not well founded. Other members of longer
senatorial experience than Mr. Millard have
not hesitated to array themselves on one
side or the other.
Valentine Republican: Senator AMIatd
is said to have declined to s.iy wh.,t sort
of railway regulation lie fivors, m-l,, v'ng

have a right to know where ne t-'ords
on all public questions and ie cannot make
his position known any too soon.
Fremont Tribune: Lee Herdman, v ho for
long has been a prominent democratic
oracle, is quoted by a Lincoln paper as say
ing that unquestionably G. W. Wattles of
Omaha will bo a formidable candidate for
Vnlted States senator on the republican
side. Mr. Wattles will, according ( Mr.
Herdman. contribute freely of his financial
Increment, and aa he is a rich man it is
thought by many this will aid hlin very ma
terially In his quest of the senatorial toa.

Thus the Omaha candidate is likely to mi iter

Wattles Is said to be opposed to a conven-

opposition openly and publicly, not at this
time. Mr. Millard has served notice that
he has accepted the situation and, bowing
to the will of his party, will favor one next
i year. In this he evidently has the advan
tage of Mr. Wattles, for It might us well
j be known now that the republicans of Ne

Burkett experiment. Under the new method
of popular nominations senatorships are
not palpably open to tbe highest bidders
and the fact that a few rich men are
looking longingly on the Senatorial seat
may not mar other aspirants. Senator
Burkett did not expend a hundred dollars
to get a practically unanimous nomination.
