It seems to be practically settled thnt
uo comprehensive financial bill can be
put throiigh congress nt the coming fea
sion. It 1 to be expected thnt the advo
cates of a more elastic currency, of
whom Secretary Shaw Is one, will make
an effort to secure Home action lu sup
port of their idea, but while It uiny find
favor with n considerable number of
congressmen there Is very little proba
bility of anything being done. It Is
pointed out that the forces lu charxe of
legislation are the same which have al
ways opposed such measures aud there
Is bo ' reason why they should change
their att'tude. The fact Is that there
Is a very general feeling lu the business
world that the existing financial system,
while not perfect. Is working very well
and th,at there would be quite ns likely
to be harm as good from meddling with
It at present. So far as the question of a
more elastic currency Is concerned. It
has been verv fully discussed and hns
not made a very great Impression upon
the public. The banking Interest Is by
no means unanimous regarding It, In
view of the conditions which its advo
cates would Impose, and the general
business Interests appear to le to a large
extent lud.fferent since they experience
no difficulty In obtaining whatever ac
commodations they require.
It has been stated that the secretary
of the treasury will recommend an ex
tension of federal control and regulation
of the national bnhka. with a view espe
cially of preventing arbitrary Increases
In the rate of interest, as was done a
short time since in New York. What
specific suggestions Secretnry Shaw will
make are not now known, but It is safe
to say that what it is rciHirted he -will
recommend will not receive any very
serious attention from congress. It will
hardly be questioned that there Is some
danger In the unrestricted power of the
banks to raise the Interest rate, but
there Is reason to believe that congress
will not attempt to Interfere with It. It
Is suggested as not Improbable that a
bill for the Improvement of national
bunk examinations may be passed. The
support of such a measure by the comp
troller of tho currency is counted upon,
be having more than once urged that
Improvement can be made In the matter
of bank examinations. That these are
not always as careful and thorough as
they should be Is very generally ad
mitted and has been shown In numerous
cases of bank failures. Many bank ex
aminers have more work Imposed upon
them than they can perform efficiently.
The existing monetary system has
been found adequate under all condi
tions and exigencies thus far and there
Is reason to think will continue to be
for an Indefinite time in the future.
The advocates of so-called : reforms
urRe the possibility of difficulties at
some time In the years to come, but
their fear In this regard Is not very Im
pressive. At all events the country Is
very well satisfied with the monetary
system as It is and there Is no general
disposition to try expedients or experi
RUSSIA 8 ISCREA81MQ TROVBLtS.
Troubles grow from day to day for
the Russian government and when .
under what conditions the end will be
reached no man can foresee. The grav
est fact In the situation is the spread of
the revolutionary spirit in .the army and
navy, which threatens the utter demorali
zation of what has been the bulwark
and security of the government How
fur the mutinous spirit will go it Is Im
possible to say, but the Indications are
that it may not be checked before it has
infected most of the men who are serv
ing In the military establishment. The
soldiers and sailors who have revolted
have the sympathy of the people and
especially of the working classes and un
doubtedly the revolutionaries will to the
fullest extent use the opportunity to In
cite mutiny In the army and navy. They
understand fully that if they can accom
plish the demoralization of the govern
ment's military and naval power they
will have a pretty clear course toward
the attainment of what they desire.
No prediction as to what may yet take
place before peace and order are re
established In Russia is of any value, so
confused and troubled are all the condi
tions. While a portion of the people are
showing a conservative disposition,
among a much larger element there Is a
tendency to turbulence. There Is an In
flammable mass that may at any time
burst forth and renew the work of
slaughter and destruction. Meanwhile
It Is not apparent that Count WItte and
his ministers are making much substan
tial progress In securing popular confi
dence. PORTO HICJX HO-VJt RILE.
The people of Porto Rico want home
rule aud will memorialize congress to
grant them this. There Is great popular
dissatisfaction with the existing political
conditions, as was shown by the declara
tions and action of the convention of
municipalities held a few mouths ago,
at which the memorial to be presented
to congress was unanimously adopted.
The mayor of San Juan doubtless repre
sent the general sentiment among the
people of the Island lu aaylng that If
they are not entitled to what they ask
for In the memorial It would have been
better for rbem that the change of flag
had uot taken place. He points out that
when the United State took possession of
Porto Rico the people of the Island bad
control of the administration of affairs
and In every important position of trust
there was a Porto RIcau. Now, after
seven years of American control, "a
Porto It lean is a nobody In hi own
country and If he dare to criticise those
acts which be considers to be against the
welfare of his country, he 1 branded a
au anti-American agitator."
This Is au unpleasant charge and if
true Justlfle tut feeling of dissatisfac
tion which 1 reported to exist. Our
government should treat the people of
Porto Itlco nt least as well as the Span
ish government did, and It appears evi
dent that thus far It has not done so1.
The change of flags was most cordially
welcomed by tho Porto Kicans. who re
garded It as giving assurance of a larger
measure of freedom and self-government.
Their preseut attitude nttests
that they have been disappointed and
that unless something Is done to Improve
political conditions lu the direction they
desire our government Is likely to have
no little trrtuble In dealing with them.
It Is not to be doubted that the appeal of
the Porto Rlcans for self-government
will have the sympathy of a very lnrge
portion of the American people.
APPEAL FUR A NOBLE CHARITY
The uppeal of Rev. E. A. Fogelstrom,
rector of the Immanuel Deaconess Insti
tute and manager of the Iinmnnuel hos
pital, for substantial aid to meet the
growing and Imperative needs of these
benevolent establishments merits gener
ous response nt the hands of Omaha
Although this community has within
the past year contributed most liberally
to the establishment and upbuilding of
various educational, benevolent and i
charitable institutions, none are more
deserving and more entitled to consid
eration than the hospitals that are open
at all times of the year and ot all times
of the day to invalids and persons dis
abled by accident or chronic diseases.
The leueflcont work, which within the
past few years has leen carried on by
an organization of Swedish-American
women who have devoted their lives to
the nursing of patients under the core
of the Immanuel hospital, uierits en
couragement and recognition at tho
hands of nil who are In position to ren
der monetary assistance by subscription
and donation, and this is the season of
the year when such assistance will be
most commendable and most highly ap
preciated. BAXISH SALOOSS FROM TF l'RO
Twelve months ago an earnest appeal
was mnde to the Board of Fire and Po
lice Commissioners to refuse to relicense
all saloons located within the proscribed
district. It Is a matter of notoriety that
these licensed dram shops derive their
patronage chiefly from the lawless and
vicious, and are moreover resorts for
dangerous criminals who Infest the city
from time to time. For reasons not ex
plained the board turned a deaf ear to
the appeal last year and granted licenses
to these outlaw saloons, the only color
of Justification being that the protests
formally filed against them by Elmer E.
Thomas had been withdrawn In con
formity with a compact alleged to have
been made between the Civic Federation
and the legal representatives of disor
derly resorts, that they would henceforth
and forever live up to the law aud keep
This compact was no sooner made
than It was broken. It Is a matter of
notoriety that saloons located In the pro
scribed district bad little business in the
daytime and the most of their business
was after midnight. In the nature of
things it Is out of the question for them
to observe the law strictly or to main
tain order when their patronage conies
from a class of men and women steeped
In vice and crime and requiring constant
The time has now come for rational
license reform. The line should be
drawn between decent and orderly
places and resorts that are designed al
most exclusively for the entertalnmeut
of the most degraded and lawless class
of the community. It should not require
individual protest to banish the saloons
from the proscribed district. The police
board has ample power to reject appli
cations for license for saloons located
within the district,' and this, power It
should exercise fearlessly lu the Inter
est of good government.
The demand for Itemized statements
of campaign expenses ha been fully
met by the republican state committee
iu Nebraska, the treasurer' exhibit re
cently published showing not only where
every cent came from, but also where
every cent went to. The significant fea
ture of this exhibit, however, Is more In
what it doe not show than In what It
does show. Of the whole Nebraska dele
gation In congress, every one of whom
holds his place as a republican, only two
congressmen came to the front with con
tributions to help maintain the party or
ganization. There are a lot of others,
too, who owe everything to the party,
but who return nothing to It. On the
other band, the little office holders who
get a meager salary are proportionately
the most loyal party subjects and the
most liberal contributors to the party.
The question naturally presents Itself
how people who neither have nor look
for political favors can be expected to
put up to keep the party machinery run
ning when those most signally honored
turn a deaf ear to all solicitations.
According to the World-Herald, "the
proxtitlon to reconvene the legislature
Is merely a proposition to give certain
eminent republicans who aspire to a
United States senatorshlp an opportu
nity to manufacture political thunder
for themselves at the expense of the
taxpayers and to enable the discredited
legislature to retrieve itself by pre
tended response to public sentiment."
If this were literally true it would still
justify Governor Mickey In reconvening
the legislature for the express purpose
of submitting amendment to the consti
tution, which everybody concede needs
radical revision in some of its most vital
parts. It is manifestly the fear that the
legislature will retrieve Itself from the
odium that rests upon It by reason of
Its failure to carry out reforms de
manded by the people that actuate the
opposition of the democratic organ to
the special session. Next to calamity
and hard times the bloivder and short
comings of republicans' are the banking
capital of democracy and the discred
ited legislature Is expected to furnish a
great deal of ammunition for next year's
campaign. But the people of Nebraska
want relief, no matter where It comes
from, and If the discredited legislature
retrieves Itself by giving the people what
they want the special session will prove
a good thing.
The merchants of St. Louis are con
ducting a vigorous campaign for an
early morning fast mail service from
St. Louis to the cities and town In
Oklahoma on the 'Frisco Hue. Why
cannot Omaha merchants do likewise
with regard to an early morning fast
mall service over the Union Pacific aud
Burlington lines, or at least one of the
two overland lines? Nearly every other
city In the country has for years en
Joyed fast mail service way beyond Its
trade territory, but westward bound
malls In Omaha are held until 7 or H
o'clock In the morning and do not reach
most of the Nebraska towns In-fore noon
or late In the afternoon. This affects
not merely the merchants, bnt the news
papers. It goes without saying that the
newspapers exert a powerful Influence
In stimulating trade, and the paper that
gets there first circulates the most and
the country merchants naturally give
their patronage to the cities whose
papers they are accustomed to rend, un
less some other city enjoys special ad
vantage In transsudation rates.
City Attorney Breen Is sure the crea
tion of nn $ 1.8(H) n year second assistant
to him will le a saving to the taxpayers
because It will lie Joined to the abolition
of the position of city claim agent. It
would be If the claim ngent's Job were
not sure to be revived at the first turu
of the box. The employment of an
agent to Investigate claims for damages
trumped up against the city is ns neces
sary as the employment of a lawyer to
defend the suits when brought. The de
tailing of a hlgh-sahirled lawyer to do
work a lower-salaried claim agent could
do would be uo appreciable economy.
The railroad tax Issue will not down.
If the railroads persist In refusing to
pay their taxes in the face of the enor
mous traffic they nre now enjoying they
will force a rate conflict with the people
of Nebraska that will prove more dis
astrous to their Interests than the pay
ment of taxes based on assessments that
are notoriously atill at least 20 per cent
below the true value of their properties.
According to the St. Louis Globe
Democrat, "Emancipation from all spe

verted to the doctrine of the "squure

The srniy quartermasters who have
charge of construction at garrisons con
tinue to be heard to the effect that It la
difficult to obtain bids at what are re
garded aa reasonable prices for carrying
out the various project. This situation Is
due to the Increase In the cost of material
and wages of labor. It liaa a direct effect,
of course, upon tho allotments of public
work at army posts and Is bound to render
necessary an Increase In the estimate for
barracks and quarters. It is quite evident
that at the present rate charged by the
material men and exacted by labor there
will be necessary an increase In the an

Lieutenant General A. R. Chaffee, chief
of staff of the army, left Washington on
Thursday for California, accompanied by
Mrs. Chaffee. They gu to look at some
property offered for sale and hope to select
a permanent home In anticipation of Gen
eral Chaffee's retirement from active ser
vice early In the coming year. It Is Gen
eral Chaffee's intention to return to the city
about December 20 and to resume his duties
In the War department. His present plan
is to ask for transfer to the retired list on
February 1. He will Vie succeeded as chief
of staff and as lieutenant general. by Gen
eral J. C. Bates, who during General
Chaffee's absence Is acting chief of staff.
General Bates will probably serve In that
capacity until about June I, according to
the existing plan. By that time General
MacArthur, who Is now In India and mak
ing his way slowly back to the United
8tates after a tour of duty in Manchuria,
will have reached Ban Francisco. He will
at once proceed to Washington and upon
the retirement of General Bates will as
sume the duties of chief of staff, still hold
ing the rank of major general. At that
time also General Corbin, now on sick lca-vo
In Australia, will be aprdnted a lieutenant
general. He may remain abroad until his
retirement and possibly for a long time
afterward, since, according to the reports
of the surgeons he Is lar from well and
does not to again take up the cares and
responsibilities of military authority. Ho
will not become chief of staff and upon his
retirement In September, General MacAr
thur will be appointed lieutenant general.
The latter Is authorized to ntake nn ex
tended Asiatic and European trip. Inspect
ing foreign military systems and It was at
one time thought he would return to this
country by way of London, but In view of
his detail as chief of Maff and later ap
pointment as lieutenant general he may
come back earlier than he originally
planned and reach Washington by way of
San Francisco, Instead of New York. There
may be other appointments depending upon
the. change In tho grado of lieutennnt gen
eral, . especially as a number of brigadier
generals and major generals both general
officers and officers of the staff corps have
signified their desire to be considered In
connection with advancement and retire
ment. The financial difficulties of " i army offi
cer stationed at a western post are the oc
casion of an appeal made to the War de
partment by the service associates of the
unfortunate officer. The latter Is described
as being in debt to a considerable extent
and to have Involved himself by the obliga
tion of paying 30 and more per cent for
money which he borrowed. It is said the
officer regards himself as hopelessly In debt
and the Inquiry addressed to the depart
ment Is for the object of ascertaining
whether or not there was some means of
relief for the officer In question. The War
department authorities have Informed the
Inquirers that there was nothing to be done
at this end of the line, that the officer
would be expected to fulfill any obligations
he had freely assumed and that the aurest
remedy would be action by himself or his
friends In discharging the debt and arrang
ing a new loan somewhere on less high
rates of Interest.
There, Is a growing Interest In the fate of
the young men, candidates from tho army,
for the position of second lieutenant and
holders of certain certificates of eligibility
Issued to them as a result of two examina
tions liold this year. The best obtainable
legal advice In regard to existing law Is
not In agreement as to the value and effect
of these certificates. The situation stands
largely at present against the appointment
of the army candldatea and the situation
Is the more unpromising for them in view
of the fact that there still remain "addi
tional" second lieutenants, the graduates
of the military academy In the class of
last June. There will be another large
class from West Point In 1906. so that under
ordinary conditions there will be no places
left for candidates from the army. At the
same time. It must be admitted that these
army candidates have a fighting chance
and possibly If the question were put be
fore the president In a way which does not
permit of an argument, these possessors of
the certificates of eligibility will realize
their fondest hopes.
The general Btaff of the army will shortly
take up the question of providing a means
of augmenting the militia force of the
country. The plan which Is generally fa
vored Is one similar to that which has been
approved by the chief of staff and which
proposes a system of Increasing the regu
lar military force of the country to the
maximum strength allowed by law, the ob
ject being to have a total strength of 100.000
men ln,the regular army In time of war.
The question In Its relation to the militia
Is by no means as simple a problem as
that Involved In the formation of a reserve
force upon which the regular army may
depend for additional troops, although the
latter project may be by no means dis
patched off-hand. In the provision of a re
serve militia force there will be encoun
tered, of course, all sorts of obstacles on
the part of the atate authorities and It Is
realized that objections from that quarter
must be met with tact. As a contribution
to the determination of this Important
question, letters have been sent to the gov
ernors of the states Inviting suggestions
from the militia authorities, and It Is hoped
that the replies, some of which have al
ready been received at the War department,
will aid In the general staff conclusions,
which will be In the form of the draft of a
bill carrying out the approved scheme.

Senator Long's refusal to tell where he
stands upon the question of railway rate
regulation has unloosed much criticism of
the Junior senator. Bent Murdock ptys the
following compliment in a recent Issue of
the Eldorado Republican:
"C. Isaac Ing started in twelve or fif
teen years ago to follow politics as a busi
ness, a trade, a profession. He has been
In congress off and on for ten years. Can
any man In the state point to a thing that
Senator G, Isaac I-ong has done for Kansas
or for anybody in it In all these years?
Long la for Long and for nobody else; and
his entire career In Washington haa been
for Long. And now when hi Is confronted
with a measure that Is of national Impor
tance and Is requested by the state to take
sides, he hems and hawa and quibbles and
dodgea. He Is a selfish politician, and carea
for nothing, for anybody except Long. He
will be a senator for one term."
