FARM AST) F A TORY
American industrial statistics in the
two great fields of iron production and
agricultural exports are of the most en
couraging significance. In both all re
cords have been broken the last month,
which follows a series of months of un
exampl!d operations. The Increase of
the value of our agricultural exports
very evenly distributed lu the great
Items of breadstuffs, provisions and cot
ton during the eight months ending with
February, Is almost startling, the total
being $700,000,000 against $r.(S,0(K),000
during the same period of the preced
ing fiscal year. Nor Is this a case
where agricultural exports have ex
panded because of extraordinarily low
prices, the exact reverse heiftg true. Yet
notwithstanding this immense Increase,
the percentage of value of exported
farm produce to the total value of ex
ports is smaller than ever before In our
history, save only two years ago. when
the former fell off abnormally because
of shortage of our grain crop, denVon-
strating the prodigious growth aud bulk
of foreign buying of our manufacturers.
Pig Iron production, universally ac
cepted as the truest exponent of gen
eral Industry, Is, likewise, proceeding at
an unprecedented rate. In March It ex
ceeded by 100,000 tons the highest pre-
vlous record, and the average for' many
previous months Is correspondingly high,
while great activity in every branch of
the Iron and steel trades is malutained.
Yet all the-production lu this basic In
dustry Is taken at once for consumption.

Whether we look towards agricultural
or manufacturing Industry, or examine
their Inter-relations, the scene Is one of
marvelous activity, prosperity and ex
pansion. The operations actually on
foot cover a considerable period In the
future, with no serious cloud upon the
more distant prospect, but every infer

specific classes of abuses developed in
the memorable legislative Investigation
during the past year. It Is the notable
merit of this Investigation, not. only
that It enlightened the committee and the
legislature by the, Information directly
produced at Its hearings. Immensely Im

also that It excited a nation wide Inter

It Is noteworthy that the legislature,
after thorough consideration. has
protnply passed the bills thus developed
and reported by the Armstrong commit
tee, and that It has rejected every Impor

pose of weakening them, chauging them
only to Improve and strengthen them.
And it Is believed tint the rest of the
series of bills still pending will be dis
posed of in the same salutary spirit. The
effect will 1h beneficially felt In every
state In the union, because the New
York legislation will serve as a model
for Insurance reform. It will go even
far beyond that, stimulating and direct

kinds of corporations as well aa life Insurance.

The transfer of the city treasurer's
office to the custody of County Treas
urer Fink, who has now become ex
otficlo city treasurer under the new char
ter, marks the close of the career of A.
H. Heunlngs as city treasurer of
Omaha. While under the charter provl
slon for the merger, Mr. Heunlngs'
term of office is protected up to its ex
piration next month, he has been re
lieved of his active duties and official
responsiniuties. w e ieueve all our
good citizen will concur in the verdict
that City Treasurer Heunlngs has given
the best administration of that office
It will lie admitted that his entry
into the treasury six years ago was
the result of a political accident. But
Mr. Hennlngs turned out to be a politi
cal accident who made good. During
the period that he hag been in charge
of the municipal finances, he has col
lected and disbursed In taxes, proceeds
of bond sales and other municipal rev
enues, a grand total approximating
close to $lH,rK).(KM. iiu accounts have
been checked up every mouth by comp
troller of the Ksmo and opposite politi
cal affiliation and the cash balances
counted without at any time subjecting
him to question.
During this period, too. City Treas
urer Hennings has turned back to the

A German publication prints statistics of
emigration showing that the exodus from
th fatherland, so strong In former years,
bas dwindled to aa Insignificant number.
Ia 1185. when there were 101 230 Germans
migrating to the United States, there
were only 1,710 who went to Braall, 720
to Argentina. S90 to Canada, 910 to other
American countries, 00 to Australia, 90
to Africa and 70 to Asia. During 1904,
the latest year concerning which details
are given, there Were 26.0S0 Germans leav
ing for the United Ptates. 30 for Brazil,
310 for Argentina, 330 for Canada, 4 for
other American countries. 100 for Australia,
80 for Africa and ! for Asia. Thus Is will
be noted, as has been before stated, that
the United Btateg continues to draw the
bulk of German emigration, though the
flowof the exodus, according to the sta
tistics furnished on the other side, which
attained 103.S70 In 1:. dropped to S7.W0
In IfH. The Germans are staying at home
because they are finding employment at
home. That is the simple explanation
given of the matter In Germany.
Hall Calne s fellow Manxmen secured a
representative constitution from the British
Imperial government In 1HS. and Imperial
Interests have since been looked after
by a deemster and, vicar general appointed
by the home office. The House of Keys,
or lower branch of the Manx legislature,
has always been opposed to such appoint
ments, and now Its radical wing threatens
to deprive the Imperial government of any
hand at all In the administration of Manx
affairs, with the exception of a nominal
wield of the British scepter.
A significant note from the British horn
office was recently read In the House of
Keys. It "requested and required" the
loyalty of Munxmen to the constitution
of ISfirt, and added that the British gov
ernment could not consider for a moment
the question of home rule for the Isle
of Man, as such an autonomous situation
was a menace to Imperial Interests. More
over continued agitation would only lead
to one thing the aTirosatlon of the con
stitution and complete unnexation.
M. Brunetiere has given the Tsris Figaro
some particulars of the letter addressed by
himself and twenty-four other prominent
French Roman Catholics advising the
bishops to give a fair trial to tlio sepnra
tlon law. The signatories Include several
academicians. Marquis de Vogue, Comto
d'Houssonvllle and MM. Thtireau-DatiBi"
and Albert Vandal; Messrs. Georges Plcot,
Ieroy-Bcaulleu. and De 1 apparent of the
Institute; Prince D'Arenberg and Deputies
Penys Cochin, De Cartelnau, and Contto
de C'aramau. M. Brunetiere says that the
letter sets forth the reasons why the
bishops should not oppose the formation
of the associations cultuelles, which consti
tute the main feature of the separatlen law.
One reason Is that those associations were
constituted In harmony with their own
wishes, and were permitted In drafting their
statutes to reduce the possibilities of
schism to a minimum, there being no legal
stipulation to Interfere with their legiti
mate authority. Another reason Is that
the failure to constitute the association
cultuelles prolded for by the legislature
would mean the cessation of public worship
In France. That would Involve a danger
of civil war and lead to anarchy. M.
Brunetiere says that he and his friends
clearly understand that It is for the religi
ous authority to decide. They will submit
to that authority, but believe that the prac
tical acceptance of the new law will serve
the Interests ot religion better than any

While we are criticizing the American
system ot Jurisprudence which makes ap
peals easy and praising the English sys
tem, which makes them difficult, we should
not overlook the fact that Great Britain
is taking steps to modify Its system in 1ml
tation of American methods. The "crimi
nal appeal bill," which has received Its
second reading In the lords, provides for
a court of criminal appeal consisting of at
least three Judges of the high court; a con
victed man to have an unlimited right to
appeal on all points; the appellant,' If with
out means, to have assigned to Mm, with
out cost, a solicitor and counsel. The lord
chancellor. In discussing the measure, re
marked: "No matter how bad the law may
be that the judge lays down, and no matter
how erroneous thewerdlct of a Jury may
be, ther is at present no means by. which
a prisoner may obtain redress."
The Maybrick case is one in point. Though
she was convicted upon evidence which
was shaky and by a judge who was Insaue,
she could not get a new trial nor could
she escape from Woking prison until two
nations had sued for her purrton at th
foot of the throne. A more striking case
has recently come to light In Kngland, and
one which has caused the Introduction of

Victory for the Sqnare Dal - Prac
Kansas City Star.
Some of the champions of railway special
privilege are predicting defeat for Presi
dent Roosevelt's rate regulation policy.
Soma friends of regulation are becoming
disheartened over the prospects of the rat
bill. There is no reason for rejoicing on
the one hand or discouragement on th
other. There will be a new rata law, and
It will be a good law a long step In the
right direction. Indeed, the president ha
already won a victory that cannot be dis
counted by any probable outcome of th
deliberations on the rale bill.
The country should recall the indigna
tion, the protestations, the threats and the
defiance of the railway magnates when
the president first declared his policy of
government regulation of rates. Compare
that attitude with the present acceptance
by the railways of the fact that th gov
ernment not only has the power to regu
late, but that a law tu that end will b
