ILLLIOIS DIRECT FRIMART LAW.
The direct primary law just passed
at the extraordinary session of the
Illinois legislature Is a disappointment
to the friends of reform In nominating
system. While the act purports to
establish nominations ty direct rote
of party membership, the principle Is
In large part defeated by limitations
end by contingent provisions. The
conditions which contemplate Domina
tions by conventions are so numerous
and of such a character that some
H edict that more nominations will In
practice be made through them than
by direct vote, while the act Is further
criticised as cumbersome, expensive,
But the Illinois newspapers that
most ardently champion the direct pri
mary principle, while acknowledging
and emphasizing .ts defects, accept the
act nevertheless as a aubs'antial gain
and as affording r. basis on which a
genuine embodiment of the principle
may be built, and they point out some
of the reaognized abuses of the old
caucus and convention system which

OVT OF TUB VASAL COMMIT! 'ft K.
The question of type of the Panama
canal now goes back to the senate
from the committee having It in
charge with practically little to aid
that body to a prompt decision. It Is
true that the report of the committee
nominally recommends a sea-level
canal, but It comes with a bare pre
ponderance, the committee having in
fact been equally divided until an ab
sent member finally turned np tot turn
The work of the senate committee
has been so ineffectual as to raise sus
picion of covert hostility to the iuter-
j ests of the canal or to the adminis
tration which had declared ita readi
ness all the time to act decisively If
congress would say It did not care to
take the responsibility. However that
may be, after five months of the ses
sion Is gone, the senate is in little bet
ter plight for action than It was when
congress convened. The committee
has examined a great many witnesses
on a great variety of subjects more
or less connected with the canal, but
in so far as they have testified on the
question of canal type the information
is not much more enlightening than
congress had at the start. It has
cleared up no doubtful engineering
points nor has It responded to the
urgent demand nor even reinforced
the absolute necessity of immediate
decision between a sea level or a lock
canal, which Chief Engineer Stevens
and Secretary Taft endeavored with
all emphasis to impress upon the com
mittee, as President Roosevelt himself
had previously done In his message.
Now that the committee at last lets
go of the subject it is still up to the
senate to decide quickly or quickly
let the president decide.
BAILEY VS. TILL MAS
Senators Bailey and Tillman, who
are the head and front of the partisan
assault on the president, are as wide
apart as the poles In the basis of their
criticisms. One assails him for inter
fering too little in the progress of the
rate bill through the senate, the other
for Interfering too much.
"If," said Senator Bailey In the bit
terness and fury of his first outburst,
"the president had been the heroic
figure which the senator from Montana
would have us believe he was, he
would have summoned the republican
leaders to a conference from the house
and the senate, and he would have
said to them: 'Gentlemen, I want to
tell you that unless you pass a good
bill the president of the United States
Intends to veto It.' "
On the same day In a studied ar
raignment of the president, Senator
Tillman, denouncing him for dealing
with the senators, declared: "On the
contrary, 1 have expressed the opinion
In more than one public Interview
that the president had nothing to do
with the bill now under consideration,
and that It was the business of the
It would obviously have made no
difference, so far as partisan treatment
Is concerned, whether the president
had done more or less than he did
or had doTie it in a different manner.
He would have been damned if he
did and damned if he did not.
What the president actually has done
from first to last, since as well as be
fore congress convened, has been to
do everything a chief executive with
propriety and effect could do to Induce
congress to grant the substance of the
demand of the people, and though he
has in fact succeeded far beyond what
could reasonably huve been believed
possible, partisanship still attacks him,
in spite of th fact that it has to
choose the most Inconsistent and pre
posterous ground for doing so.

Weeping Water Herald (rep.).
The friends of EJward Rosewater, editor
of The Bee. held a meeting In Omaha
last week and concluded to do their utmost
to elect him to the t'nlted States senate.
The friends have come to reallxe that In

wondrous strange why these same advo

good things before. The editor of the
Herald knew thst Edward Rosewater was
the man for the I'nited States senate
years go. His constant nght for years
has been against monopolies and corpora
tions who have tried to rule, ruin and
fleece the people. He has battled singly
and accomplished much. He has had the
confidence of a great farming class. He

Scott's Bluff Republican (rep.).
There Is no doubt as to the ability tit
Mr. Rosewater and there Is no doubt but
that at this time he will be a strong cun-

twenty-five years been advocating the
policy now endorsed by the republican
party, and It seems to us that if a man Is
ever to be rewarded for righting the battles
of the people now Is the time.

THE CALEB POWKRS CASK
The remanding of Caleb Powers back
to the state authorities for a fourth
trial for the assassination of Governor
Goebel gives Kentucky another oppor
tunity to do long delayed justice, and
there are some hopeful signs that the
opportunity may not be neglected.
That Powers never had had a fair trial
is now generally admitted, even in
Kentucky. The action of the supreme
court of the state by successively set
ting aside the three convictions already
secured. Is virtually an official admis
sion of the fact. Well known cir
cumstances outside of the official
record demonstrate a most flagrant
case of unfairness and denial of jus
tice. Some of the ablest lawyers in
the country have exhaustively studied

the contest at all. That kind of talk Is all
buncombe, angling fof suckers, an effort to
play upon the prejudices of the Ignorant,
and Is an Insult to the good sense and hon
esty of the republican voters of the state.
Norrls Brown is Just as much a railroad
tool as Seqator Millard or John L. Webster
and has been far more complacent toward
them than Mr. Rosewater. He has never
foolishly antagonised any Interest of the
state. The chief political spokesman ot the
statetold us not a month since that Norrls

not think any mistake would be made In
electing him to the senate. Do you sup

It is not altogether unprecedented
that the courts should fall In the ex
traordinary circumstances in which
this case originated. A state of civil
war practically existed In which the
community waa divided in mortal en
mity. Fairness from one side or the
other was perhaps an impossibility for
the time. But after years have passed
and the fierce passions of the strife
in which "Goebel lost his life have
cooled. It ought to be possible now to
have a fair ascertainment of the truth
even in the local courts. At all events
the federal courts have put the re
sponsibility squarely upon Kentucky.

seaators are trying to throw rocks at

One of Omaha's most pressing needs
right now is for more factories and
mills. If Omaha Is to be a city of
176.000 to 200,000 people by the next
census It will not only have to gather
In all the population that Is included
within the proper limits ot Greater
Omaha, but It will also have to draw
from the outside a large number of
new recruits. Nothing would so stim

and women of the families that con

as the establishment of new industrial
enterprises, furnishing employment
for wage-earners in addition to em

There are a great many things which
could be profitably manufactured in
Omaha which are' not now made here.
Any process for working up into fin
ished product the raw materials from
the farm, field and ranch or the con
version of the byproducts of the big
packing bouses or the smelting works
should have an easy foothold here.
Omaha's distributing facilities are not
excelled by any other city between the
lakes and the Pacific coast and the
demand for home consumption ot most
articles ot current use is steadily grow

this and adjacent states.
The Commercial club is already do
ing something In the direction of at

more vigorous efforts should be cen
tered along this line. If Omaha can
add to ita industrial plant a dozen
mills and factories, big and little, this
year ts will take a big step toward the
200,000 population mark for 110.
Talk is renewed of a new bank for
Omaha. This city just now has fewer
banks than at any previous time for
twenty years, but the banks that are
here are thoroughly sound and furnish
the best of banking facilities. There
Is, doubtless, room for additional
banks, but to meet with favor they
must be substantially backed and con

recent events huve led many to believe
that he is stronger in the state than any
Omaha man who could be selected.
Should the people of the state select
Rosewater at the coming convention they
will decide upon a man who has been fear
leas in his opinions and acts and who will
not likely be a trimmer In the affairs st
Washington. He has made many warm
friends and many warm enemies. He con
tended radically for things In the past
which brought down upon him many vials
of wrath, but It must be acknowledged now
that he waa mora often right than wrong;
that the things he contended for have the
popular approval now.

L Depeche Colonlale of Paris has a cor
respondent somewhere In Australia. This
correspondent has been enlightening the
readers of his paper on Oerman commer
cial expansion In the Pacific. The scien
tific, organisation of the Norddeutscher
Lloyd administration, which enables It to
reap at all seasons of the year the maxi
mum of profit with a minimum of expense.
Is dwelt upon by the correspondent.
The two double-screw steamers stationed
t Sydney, the Prlns Waldemar and the
Prlns Slglsmund, are serious rivals of the
steamers belonging to local Australian
companies In their relations with the
Melaneslan Archipelago. At present the
Australian continent Is completely Invested
by the Germans, says this authority.
The Norddeutscher Lloyd company haa
now made a contract with the planters of
the Islands of New Britain and New Cleve
land whereby It haa obtained for a period
of five years the monopoly of the transport
of their copra and Other products. They
have offered such low freight charges that
It would be Impossible for them to make
both ends meet were It not for the secret
subsidy from the Oerman government.
Oerman colonization is not to be dreaded
In these waters, but German activity in
establishing uot merely naval bases. ' but
military works (at Simpsonhaven) Is re
garded as a menace.
In the last ten years, says Bradstreet's
Review, Oermany has added 8.1ii0.flu0 to Its
population, which in lo exceeded 60.000,0i'.
It Is well known that a large number of
Germans have left thiir native country to
begin life anew In other lands notably tli
I'nlted States but of late, it appears. Im
migrants have outnumbered emigrants, and
the fact that, in face of thM circum
stances, the condition of the people is
steadily Improving may not unfairly be
said to afford strong testimony as to the
strength of the, economic position of the
oountry. Yet In spite of the great addition
to the Industrial army resulting from this
rapid growth of population, the supply of
native labor does rot In good years equal
the demand, and the scarcity of workmen
renders necessary the employment of Rus
sians, Poles, Italians and other foreigners
In house building, farming and the con
struction of canals and waterways. The
higher remuneration to be secured in In
dustrial pursuits and the attractions of
town life, moreover, cause a diminution
In the nunsber of workers who devote
themselves to agriculture.
A significant feature of the migration
from the country to the town is the cir
cumstance that it Is often conrtned to the
cast, where it Is often attributed tn the
patrlarchial conditions prevailing on the
great estates. On the contrary, the same
version for farm work is reported from
Bavaria, where peasant holdings form the
great majority of the farms. Some Idea of
the scarcity of German " farm labor at
harvest time may be gathered from tho
statement that the foreign contingent who
come into Germany at this season, number
about ,000, comprising 360,000 Russians
and Polea and 60,000 Oallcians, Ruthenes
and Bohemians. .

There Is something pathetic in the eager
ness displayed by the Irish In Ireland to
send their quota for the relief of the San
Francisco sufferers. Th condition are so
commonly reversed, and the stream of help
that constantly pours eastward to th Em
erald Isle from th "Greater Ireland" would
seem to preclude the thought of any pos

touch of sorrow and suffering has effected
the seemingly Impossible, and the sugges
tion la made that ban Francisco's contri
bution to the furtherance of th literary
and political propaganda of the Gaelic
league ahall be returned to the donors, to
be applied to the feeding of the hungry and
the clothing of th shelterless.
