There never was a time in the history
of the world when public opinion, the
uncrowned potentate before whom em
perors, popes' and parliaments Iww In
humble submission, was as irresistibly
potential as it Is today. A most striking
proof of this fact was furnished by the
passage of the Hepburn railroad rate
bill, which passed the house of repre
sentatives by the phenomenal vote of
340 to 7. The almost unanimous en
dorsement of railroad regulation by the
representatives of all political creeds is
by no means to be ascribed to a com
plete revolution of economic views on
the part of representatives who have
heretofore opposed Railroad regulation.
In reality It Is due to the conviction that
there U such an overwhelming popular
demand for such legislation as would
make impossible the re-election of any
member who recorded his vote In opposi
tion. It was the fear of the displeasure
of the uncrowned potentate that swayed
the minds of scores of congressmen who
owed their nomination and seats in con
gress to railroud Influence. They dared
not brave the well known and enthusi
astic sentiment of the people who are
behind Roosevelt's railroad rate regula
Only a few weeks ago many of the
men who voted for the Hepburn bill as
serted through the press and In the
forum that the proposition to confer the
rate-making power upon the Interstate
Commerce commission was unconstitu
tional nnd utterly Impracticable of exe
cution unless the commission was made
up entirely of railroad experts. It was
asserted, moreover, by the opponents of
the measure that the exercise of the
rate-making powers by anyone was a
usurpation of Judicial functions that
could only be vested safely in the fed
eral courts. But, lo and behold! a
change came over the spirit of their
dreams, and they fell down on their
faces before the great Juggernaut and
cried: 'Teccavl! (I have sinned.) I nm
now ready to purge myself by casting
my vote with the majority and take tho
chances of placating my rnllrond chap
erons before tho congressional conven
tion meets to nominate my successor."
That an ambition for colonization has
been strongly developed In Germany Is
attested by several circumstances, at
least one of which Is of particular in
terest to 'his country. This is the prog
ress which the Germans are making In
the colonization of southern Brazil. Ac
coidlng to nn evidently well Informed
writer on the subject there are now
500,000 Germans, emigrants and their
offspring, resident in BrazlUand although
the gnat majority of them have em
braced I-. rn a I) lan citizenship their Ideals
and ties aro essentially and Inviolably
German It Is stated. that In the south
ern portion of the country, where they
aro thickest, they have become the rul
ing element German factories, ware
houses, shops, farms, schools and
churches dot the country everywhere.
German line huperseded Portuguese, the
olBciul In up.' ape of Brazil, In scores of
communities. A hundred million dollars
of vested Intf ret banking, atreet rail
roads, electric works, mines, coffee
plantations and a great variety of busi
ness undertakings claim the protection
of the kaiser's flag. A cross-country rail
way and a still more extensive pro
jected system are in the hands of Ger
man capitalists. The country's vast
ocean traffic, the Amazon river shipping
and much of the coasting trade are dom
inated by Germans.
There is thus being created a nation
of Germans In tbe largest of the South
American countries and that Is the
avowed purpose of these German colo
nizing concerns, which have become
lords and masters over 8,000 square
miles of Br-ivlllan territory. It Is the
object of these territorial syndicates to
people their lands with Immigrants
w'lllng to be kept German. It Is stated
that the various colonizing concerns
condu?t a sleepless propaganda through
out German-speaking Europe, emitting
whole libraries of literature which
paint Brazil as a picture of glorious
future, always provid'ng that Germans
In goodly number go there to develop It.
The effort of these concerns are sup
ported vigorously by an Influential or
g:ulwitlon known as tho German-Brazilian
eoclety, with headquarters in Berlin
and branches throughout the country.
Apart from the colonizing enterprises
which are the tangible attempts of Ger
mans to secure a foothold in the coun
try. German Influence everywhere In
Brazil Is actively at work. It does not
appear that the German government- Is
directly nldlug or encouraging this
movement, the chief Incentive to which
Is commercial expansion, but the gov
ern n ent is .not doing anything to dis
The interest of tho American people
In the matter relates to the application
of the Monroe doctrine to the develop
ment by European Immigrants of the
southern part of this hemisphere. It is
suggested that tbe German program in
Brazil contemplates among other things
abandonment or modification of the
Monroe doctrine by the United Statea
which shall eventually permit economic
predominance to be turned to political
account without war. There seems to be
no doubt that the German colonial nnrtv
has no respect for the Monroe doctrine,
but that doctrine will certainly have to i
J be reckoned with if In the future Ger
man colonization In Brazil should result
in erecting a colony there as an Integral
part of the German empire. This would
appear to be the aim of those who are
engaged in the colonizing movement and
they are deluding themselves If they
think, as some of them seem to do, that
they can establish In this hemisphere a
German colony in political alliance with
the empire and avoid the application of
the Monroe doctrine. That doctrine doe
not stand lq the way of emigration from
Europe to any of the countries south
of us, or of the establishment of colonies
for any but a political purpose. But
colonies created with a view to promot
ing In tills hemisphere the establishment
of European political Institutions would

The determination of Governor Cum

The adoption of the biennial election
amendment legislated Governor Cum
mins into an extra year in the execu

the end of his present term extend over
a period of five years, whereas no other
governor ever held more than four years,
and no predecessor, except the lone dem
ocratic governor, ever even asked for the
third term. Tbe establishment of a third
term precedent in Iowa might conceiv
ably have an Influence outside of that
state, as it has been the accepted doc
trine in all the western states and most
of the eastern states in which repub

Whether Governor Cummins has a
sufficient hold upon hla party to break
through all .this tradition is open to
question. lie has, it must be admitted,
attracted more than usual attention
since he became governor by bis spec
tacular performances, but most of his
appeals to popular favor have been on
lines of national legislation or reform
rather than state Issues. As governor of
Iowa he cannot bring about a revision of
the tariff, nor railway rate regulation,
nor reciprocity . with Germany, nor the
amendment of the. federal constitution
so as to provide for the election of sen
ators by direct popular vote. On the
other hand, his program of state Issues,
Including anti-pass legislation, Insurance
regulation, the suppression of the lobby
and direct primary nominations, are nil
matters which he could have and should
have taken up and put through during
the five years in which he has been at
the helm. And whan he asks for two
years more in which to carry out these
reforms he may have to explain why
he failed to carry them out In the five
years already given hlra.
At the same time It must be con
ceded that Governor Cummins has a
certain personal magnetism and a plaus
ible way of presenting his case that has
won him a devoted following, who will
undoubtedly support him unswervingly
In his quest for a third term. That he
will go after It also with his customary
vigor and vim may also be conceded.
It Is an open secret that the governor
sh.'p Is not the limit of his ambition and
that Governor, Cummins' desire to keep
in the political forefront is rather to
pave the way for either the senatorial
succession or the position of Iowa's fa
vorite son In the next presidential con
vention. That Iowa politics will be strenuous
from now on until the republican state
nominations are made goes without
There is favorable promise of legisla
tion at the present session of congress
increasing the powers of the national
government In enforcing quarantine,
with a view especially to protecting the
yellow fever ports. It Is stated that j
the southern congressmen are all In fa
vor of such legislation. A bill has been
Introduced by Senator Mallory of Flor
ida providing for increasing the powers
and authority of the public health and
marine hospital service and practically
making it mandatory for the federal
government to acquire stations on tbe
southern const where it may enforce
quarantine laws. At a subsequent meet
ing of southern congressmen attention
was called to the good work which the
federal quarantine officials performed
In subduing the epidemic in New Or
leans and It is said that most of them
were satisfied that the government
could give better quarantine protection
than the state authorities, whose laws
conflicted nnd who sometimes were lax
In tho enforcement of quarantine be
cause of private Interests.
With the southern representatives In
favor of national quarantine there
should be no difficulty In securing the
proposed legislation. Certainly tbe ex
perience of last summer ought to be
conclusive as to the expediency of
placing quarantine regulations, partieu-
larly as to what are called the yellow
fever ports, entirely In the control of
the federal authorities. In such n matter
state rights should receive no considera
tion. TEE FAH EASTKFX D-VGJfR.
Secretary Taft asked the stmate com
mittee on appropriations to provide for
additional barracks and quarters for
the army at or near Manila. He ex
plained that the situation In China might
at any time make necessary the sending
of troops there and It would" be wise J
to have the troops near to be used for
that purpose. This suggests that the
government may have Information re
garding conditions In China which has
not come to public knowledge. There
appears to be no doubt there Is danger
of trouble. Tbe statement made by a
merchant from Shanghai Just arrived
In San Francisco may be somewhat ex
aggerated, but there is unquestionably
some substantial ground for it That
there is a strong and growing feeling of
dislike for foreigners among the Chinese
people, or a portion of them, Is amply
attested, and there is reason to appre
hend that It may manifest itself In the
form of revolt against the foreigner. It
Is the young men of China who are the
Instigators and leaders of the rntl-
foreign movement and this fact makes
It the more dangerous.
It Is undoubtedly the part of wis
dom for the United States to be pre
pared for a possible exigency by In
creasing tbe number of troops at Ma
nila. Such precautionary action would
possibly have a good effect upon the
Chinese government, which does not ap
pear to be exerting Itself very energet
ically to check or repress the growing
spirit of revolt among Its people. The
Imperial authorities at Teklng are prob
ably by no means Indifferent to the situ
ation, which It must be presumed they
are entirely familiar with, but they are
not exerting themselves as zealously and
energetically as the circumstances de
mand. Of course there will be no action
by our government of an aggressive
character unless American citizens and
interests are so imperilled as to Justify
vigorous measures. Diplomacy will be
employed so long as It shall seem to be
of any avail and conditions will have be
come desperate Indeed before American
troops are sent into Chinese territory.
The indications are that the far eastern
danger Is real, but It may be possible to
remove It without recourse to aggressive
DISHONEST SILVER COIXAUK.
In the memorable free coinage de
bate held In Omaha in the spring of
1890 William J. Bryan asked his oppo
nent to define an honest dollar. The
response was: "An honest dollar Is the
dollar that will stand the test of the
fiery ordeal; the dollar that will be
worth as much when It comes out of
the melting pot as It was before It went
Into the melting pot."
A special agent of the Treasury de
partment who Is conducting a perpetual
search for counterfeit coin bus notified
the Omaha banks to be on the lookout
for counterfeit silver dollars that have
more silver In them than the legally
coined standard dollars. Fears are ex
pressed by the official detective of coun
terfeit coin that Omaha has been flooded
with these over-valued spurious dollars
because it is almost next to Impossible
to spot a counterfeit dollar on Its per
ambulations from pocket to pocket and
bank to bank.
This disclosure Is by no means a
startling revelation. It is a matter of
notoriety that nobody In or out of a
United States mint can detect a counter
felt silver dollar of the latest refined
quality and quantity without making
an assay of the coin. It has been a
matter of notoriety for years that the
fabrication of counterfeit silver dollars
Is the iftnst profitable Industry in Amer
ica, next to the fabrication of silver half
dollars, quarters and dimes. The coun
terfeiters of silver dollars have acquired
skill In stamping bogus coin nnd are en
titled to some credit for raising the
value of bogus sliver coin by adding
from five to ten grains of silver to the
dishonest dollars of private coinage.
The moral of this tale is that the sys
tematic issue of debased currency by
the United States government Is a
profitable source of legalized pillage nnd
an Incentive to the Issue of counterfeit
coin, which the government sooner or
later must redeem with honest money.
How many millions, or hundreds of mil
lions, will have to be redeemed Is a mat
ter of conjecture.
The advent of Lincoln's birthday an
niversary this week accentuates the
timeliness of the movement to make a
national park out of the Lincoln birth
place farm. This spot has been bought
by the publisher of Collier's Weekly,
who proposes to transfer It to a board
of trustees to hold It as a national
memorial on the same plan as Mount
Vernon, which was the home of Wash
nngton. The project depends upon the
public only to the extent of raising a
fund to pay for restoring the property
and maintaining it as a public park In
perpetuity. Those who wish to con

tion should address Clarence H.

A GRATIFYING ENDORSEMENT.
. The eight annual report of tho Bankers Beserve
Life Company, of Omaha, Neb., furnishes ample evi
dence that it can justly claim to having scored sub
stantial progress and gains during the past year.
Briefly summarizing that exhibit of this well known
western institution, we find that during 1905 it's
premium income of $409,556.50 has been increased
by $79,041.50 over that of the previous year, and that
during 1905 it approved 1,429 applications, repre
senting $3,439,500 of new insurance, a net gain of $2,
005,305 over 1904. But undoubtedly the most at
tractive feature to policy holders consists in .having
the correctness of this annual statement, and every
item of the published schedule of bonds and mort
gages owned by the Company, officially certified to
by the Insurance Department of Nebraska. As the
dividends paid to it's policy holdere during 1905,
based on the net premiums paid according to the age
of their policies, were equal to from 5 td 25 per cent,
Mr. Bascom II. Robison, it's energetic president, his

A nagging wife, a furnace that wont draw or a

morals and disposition.
But a collar that doesn't fit does more to rack
his nervous system than all his other troubles.

What We Mean is "Fair Dealing"
Ws say tt Is unfair to you for a dealer to mark bis pianos with,
bis "Asking" price and to have hie "selling" price much lower
because under that sliding price system It's an accident If two
people pay the same price for the same kind of a piano. The only
fair way is for a dealer to have one price, that Is the lowest, and
to mark it plainly upon each piano.
The Hospe store Is the only one-price store In Omaha.
We say it is unfair for a dealer to pay commissions to people
who bring or send customers to his store because of a necessity
the commission is added te tbe price of the piano and the cus
tomer paya it. Sometimes the commission taker offers to give
his friend the commission, but no one ever knew a commission
taker to give up all of it. They only fair way la for a dealer to
mark his pianos so low that be cannot afford to pay a commis
sion, but saves it for the customer. The only piano store in
Omaha that does this lg tbe Hospe store. We sell the best pianos
in the world, aa follows;

We grow old together.
Who wander hand In hand
Through fair and gloomy weather,
By mountain side and strand,
We who share pain and pleasure,
' Who share both shade and sun,
We hav life's fullest measure
When all is done.
The olden song and stories
It Is to them we cling;
The olden golden glories
Successive sunsets fling;
Our handclasps grow the stronger
While we walk through th yvars;
Our Joy is but the longer
For all our tears.
For us Is ever glowing
The ruby of the rose-
The echoed summer showing
Across the drift of snows;
As ashes and as ember
Tell of the cheering blase.
So ws old folk remember
Th wealth of days.
We who share all our dreaming
Of gladness w knew then
Know that In fancy' gleaming
Bach good hour lives again;
We who face one tomorrow
Know that anear us stay
A sheaf whence w may borrow
We who grow old together
W have so much to share
Of calm and lusty weather,
Of clouded days and fair;
The sunset shade grows fleeter.
The twilight has begun,
But life has been the sweeter
When all Is done.
