sound sense shown by the California
senators with wiperl to the Joint res

of Colorado contemplating the loan ot
government funds or credit for the
rebuilding of San Francisco. Notwith
standing the delicacy of the position
In which they were placed, they were
ble to emphasize the Impropriety and
untlmellnoRS of the proposition and to
have It pigeon-holed.
Not a voice was raised Inside or out
side of congress when the government
reached Into the treasury and handed
out as a gift $2,500,000 cash, for that
was to rescue a multitude from hunger
aad dire distress, and it harmonized
at once with the extreme necessity of
the case and with the humane impulse
which dominated the whole American
people. But "it Is an altogether dif
ferent matter to propose to advance
$100,000,000 to $200,000,000 of fed
eral funds or credit to be used In con
structing residences, business build
ings and municipal Improvements, a
policy never adopted or even seriously
proposed In the great disasters at Chi
cago, Boston, Charleston and Balti
more. In the cases of all those cities
the national government gave tem
porary emergency relief as it has done
at San Francisco, but they were all
rebuilt on broader and better lines
without dipping Into the national
treasury for the necessary capital.
Nor has any evidence been presented
yet to congress of substantial need In
the case of San Francisco for depar
ture from the sound rule of national
policy. The Insurance loss is yet to
be adjusted and there is nothing to
show that the resources of San Fran
cisco and California, public and pri
vate, re-enforced by the faith, sympa
thy and Interest of the commercial
world are Inadequate to the emergency,
or even that the victims themselves
of the earthquake and Are disaster ask
that an exception be made on their
behalf. Until they make such request
and certify it in the most authentic
manner through their proper official
representatives, consideration of the
subject in congress would be. prema
ture and futile.
KANSAS REPUBLICAN CONVENTION.
The fact that stands out conspicuous
in the Kansas, republican convention
Is that the whole party in that state
takes advanced ground In line with
the leadership of President Roosevelt.
The proceedings of the convention re
flect the rivalries of aspiring local
leaders and of well defined factions, but
the success of any one leader or set
ot leaders or ot one faction over - an
other in nowise involved the position
of the party on vital issues or its sym
pathy with and loyalty to the presi
dent, the general endorsement of
whose policy could not have beeta
stronger. The platform it will be
noted concludes with this separate and
particular declaration: "We espe
daily approve his demands for the reg
ulatton of railway rates and commend
our senator and representatives in
congress for their support of this pol
The Kansas republicans, are able to
do more than certify in mere words,
however unqualified and strong, their
alignment with aggressive national
leadership, for they specify their own
record in harmony therewith in state
legislation and administration to grap
ple with monopoly and corporation
abuses.- In the last legislature they
were really first among the states to
strike effectively at the tyranny of the
Standard OH monopoly, and the series
of laws aimed at its wrongs and in
volvtng accessory railroad abuses have
become, as the platform justly asserts,
models for other states, besides en
couraging them to revolt for their own
protection. . v .
The platform under all the circum
stances of Its adoption, constitutes an
expression significant of the spirit of
the people steadily rising against un
due corporation influence In govern
ment, and indicates the line on which
public policy, both In state and In na
tion, is bound irresistibly to proceed
STOCK MARKET REACTION.
The breakdown In the stock and se
curities market Is general and sensa
tlonal. It Is a narrow and Inadequate
view which confines its cause to the
San Francisco disaster, sudden and ex
tensive as its losses certainly are.
The more simple explanation of the
tremendous slump In stock quotations
Is reaction from over-speculation.
period of extraordinary prosperity had
established the conditions, as it always
does, for a universal advance of prices
But such an advance can go only to a
certain point when the spirit of ad
venture takes advantage of it for spec
ulative and gambling purposes. The
manifestation of this spirit has been
noticeable tor the larger part of
year, especially in the stock market
Prices of the most substantial stocks,
as well aa of insecure ones, have been
pushed to a level at which it has be
come more and more apparent that
they could not be permanently main
talned. Such prices were at variance
with the general judgment ot level
Not unlikely the San Francisco catas
trophe furnished the occasion that
marked the turning point and hastened
somewhat reaction, but reaction was
inevitable. There is evidence that It
was foreseen by the keener and more
experienced elements of the investln
snd speculating public who have bee
lor a good wlille steadily preparing
for it, and those preparations hur
riedly made after the news from Sa
Francisco would accentuate the slum
at this time.
This tact, however, is reassuring
that speculation, although it has gone
to undue lengths not only n the se-
uritles market, but also In many east
ern cities In real estate and in some
other fields, has not gravely involved
the whole country. The west psrtlcu
larly has been free from It. The gen
eral business and Industrlsl commun
ity Is on a solid basis, and the effect
of such a readjustment of values as Is
In progress in the stock market, while
it will necessarily be serious to the in
terests directly affected and a disturb
ing factor indirectly to other Interests,
Is not pregnant with universal finan
cial disaster. The ultimate result will
naturally be to put the general situa
tion on a more secure foundation on
which ruling prices will correspond
more nearly than they lately have In
the stock market to real values.
PREREQUISITES TO SUCCESS.
In the shadow ot the late election it
is not amiss to look ahead for har
bingers of success. As we have re
peatedly pointed out, Omaha and
Douglas county are strongly repub
lican and will be strongly republican
whenever the full republican vote is
polled for the ticket. To get all the
republicans, however, to pull together,
it Is absolutely necessary that the rank
and file of the party be given a voice
n its management and in the selection
of its nominees, and that the ticket,
nominated be truly representative of
all the republicans by whose votes It
must be elected.
One of the first prerequisites to suc
cess calls for putting an end to the
proscription of any element of tho
party. What was called the "old ma
chine" In its palmiest days never put
up a ticket bearing the republican
name without according liberal repre
sentation on It to the factional minor
ity. The "old machine," so-called, in
the height of its supremacy always di
vided the responsibility of party man
agement with the representatives of
the "antl" element. The Idea of folst-
ng a ticket on the party composed ex
clusively of members of an ironclad
club, chosen In secret conclave by a
few self-appointed slate makers, and
of taking the party management away
from the regularly elected party com
mittees, is repugnant to the basic prin
ciples of republicanism and repels the
enthusiastic support of the rank and
file, without which party success is
The way for the republicans ot
Omaha and Douglas county to prepare
for victory in the future Is to go back
and retrace its steps, to admit mis
takes and to correct them. All the
republican elements must be har
monized and brought to work together.
The false leaders must be discarded
and real representatives of the party
put to the front.
Every one of us want gas as cheap
as we can get it and. the sooner we
can get dollar gas the better, but
whether we are to have dollar gas or
gaa at the present price, it Is abso
lutely necessary that the gas company
have facilities for manufacturing and
distributing enough gas to meet the
demand of consumers. The Bee falls
to see where the application of the gas
company to erect another gas holder
adjacent to its present plant, which
has been held up in the council, In any
way affects the fight for cheaper gas.
The people of Omaha believe in deal
ing fairly with the franchlsed corpora'
tlons and in compelling those corpora-
tlons to deal fairly by them, but wo
do not believe they are disposed to
hamper the enlargement ot the gas
plant and the Improvement of the ser
vice. The World-Herald actually makes a
plea for decency in politics, or rather
for clean newspaper campaigns. The
World-Herald should be encouraged In
its repentance, for it has been one of
the worst offenders against political
decency. Time and again the very
virulence of its attacks on the private
life and character of republican can
dldates has reacted as a boomerang
to insure their triumphant election.
This was notably the case with the
late Mayor Moo res In three successive
campaigns. If the World-Herald will
turn over a new leaf it will encounter
It should be known that the dis
crepancy in the election returns on
councilmen from the Second ward
arose from the fact that in reading
aloud the figures on the voting ma
chine in one of the Third ward pre
cincts immediately at the close of the
polls, as provided by law, the election
officer by mistake transposed the
names and gave the vote recorded for
Bridges to Bingham and vice versa
So long as there was a question as to
which was really elected The Bee pre
ferred to give the republican candidate
the benefit of the doubt.
A Washington newspaper corre
spondent with microscopic eyes has
discovered that the election of Dahl

lng to the front with hla discovery.
Omaha real estate men are con

Army and Navy Journal.
The great fortifications at the entrance
to the Golden Gate were seriously Injured
by the earthquake. The full extent of the
Injury sustained by the great works Is as
yet unknown, for nothing but a survey
by the engineering corps can disclose the
full extent of the damage. At Lime Point
the emplacements of the big guns have
been cracked and twisted. ' The heavy con
crete, both on the floor and In the walls
of the ' emplacements, bear unmistakable
evidence of having been given a bad shak
ing. Conditions are raid to be equally bad
t the fortifications back of Old Fort Point.
Aa It Is now the great thlrteen-lnch guns
on both sides of the gate, constituting the
main defense, are practically useless. They
weigh many tons each, but their adjust
ment upon their carriage la as delicate as
that of a watch. The earthquake de
stroyed this, and though the damage can
be repaired, It will take considerable time
and much labor. The Lime Point bat.

MOVE I RIGHT DIRECTION.
Providian Faada for President's
As Indicating a growing sense of the re
quirements of decency and dignity In public
affairs, the present report that congress
will consider an appropriation to pay the
traveling expenses of the president Is dis
tinctly encouraging. The house appropria
tions committee la discussing such a meas
ure and is In consultation with the presi
dent as to the form which It should take.
Whatever plan may be found best, some
well-considered action toward the end Indi
cated should be taken at once. It Is for
the best Interests of the country that the
president should make occasional Journeys
mong hla people and It ia only fitting that
special traveling facilities should be placed
t hla disposal. Practical requirements of
railway operation as well as the dignity of
his office often make this unavoidable. The
fact that In the past presidents have found
It necessary to accept these facilities as
free gifts from private corporations or
adopt the alternative of subjecting them
selves to heavy expenae haa been a stand
tng reproach to the nation.
Now that the public has been aroused to
the Iniquity of the paas-taklng evil In gen
eral, there need be no fear of a lack of
popular support for t the proposed appro
priation. The nation will bear gladly the
cost of the prealdent'a neceasary Journeys.
If It thereby can put an end to the aituatlon
which haa led past Incumbents of the office
to the humiliation of accepting favors at
private hands. A properly drawn bill mak
ing the necessary appropriation under rea
sonable restrictions should be passed with
out further delay. . .

of the republican party In this state has
called the convention for that party to
meet in the city of Lincoln on August 21.
It Is to be hoped that when the convention
meets that good men will be nominated
that cannot be controlled by the railroads.
Let the republicans at this convention
show the railroad corporations that they
are not a power In Nebraska.
Columbus Journal: Those who have
watched the railroads In their flght against
the republican officials who have Increaaed
the railroad assessment have strong sus
picions that the railroads have again cut
the pole for the democratic agitators. Judge
Reese, a square deal republican, was de
feated by the railroads, who preferred
antl-railroad BMas." But the people are
next. They will have no, more democratic
Burt County Herald: Judge Boyd Is good
material for congress and Is growing
stronger day by day as his candidacy be
comes, known over the district. It Js Im
portant that a candidate be nominated at
the congressional convention who will com
mand the united support of the republicans
of the district, otherwise he will be doomed
to defeat. This district Is very close.
McCarthy only had 700 majority out of
43,000 votes polled at hla first election.
Central City Nonpareil: There can be
no question but that the railroads are
laying the wires to capture the republican
organisation and nominations In this state
this year, and the only way In which the
"square deal" members of the party and
they are the large majority can prevent
the consummation of the machine's schemes
Is to elect delegatea who are known to be
absolutely safe and against whom there In
not the faintest suspicion of railroad In
fluence. Hickman Enterprise: There la no need
for uneasiness on the part of Mr. Pollard's
friends relative to a aecond term In con
gress from the First district. His record
during the first term is a sufficient guar
anty that the people will not hesitate to
send him back again. Besides, no aspirant
for that place, whether he is from Lan
caster county or not, can afford to estab
lish the precedent that our representative
is only entitled to one term no matter what
bis qualifications are.
Scott's Bluff Republican: Among those
mentioned for governor this fall is John
Wall of Arcadia. Mr. Wall haa been a
resident of Nebraska for the laat thirty
years and during that lime has been in
the mercantile business In which he now la
engaged. In all theae years he haa been
an active republican and has hosts of
friends all over the state. It now looks
as though John Wall would be the only
candidate In the Big Sixth for that posi
tion, and aa the Sixth district has alwaya
been together when It came to selecting
state officers his chance for nomination
looks pretty good.

committee has decided to appoint a plat

tion. This will be a decided Innovation,
and whether It will be a success or not will
depend on whether the committee Is rout
posed of men who represent the sentiment
of the rank and file of the pnrty. There is
a big chance to plug up a committee thru

is done there is liable to be trouble Inter
on. People are Inclined to do their own
thinking, regardless of the politicians, and
anything that looks , like an attempt to
thwart their right to do so will be resented.
