While it is yet early for the nonil

urge upon republican the desirability
of raising the standard all along the
line. There is no call for undue
alarm, but It Is none the less true that
th tendency toward Independent vot

years, and that the character of the

much more to do now with success at

fact of party nomination, than they

Nebraska Is, to be sure, strongly re
publican. At the last election, how
ever, scarcely a county in the state
went solidly republican down the
ticket from top to bottom. The popu
lar demand is for better ability and
greater trustworthiness In public serv

wanted in the legislature as well a In

The disposition to set up higher
standards has already been manifested
to a certain degree by Nebraska repub
licans, but the aim must be ever still
higher. Nebraska republicans have
among them men of known ability and
tried loyalty who will compare favora

put to the front, so that Nebraska may

THE GEWRAPHT OF HEROISM,
The Carnegie Hero Fund commis
sion last week made twenty-one
awards for acts of heroism performed
by various persons deserving of special
recognition. The distribution of those
receiving these awards, when summar
ized, shows that ten reside in Penn
sylvania, six in Ohio, three in New
York and one each in Connecticut and
New Jersey, respectively.
Not a hero discovered west of the
Great Lakes nor south of the Ohio
river. Only five states out of the
forty-five constituting this great na
tion on the map of heroism. Surely
there must be something wrong with
the geography consulted by the Car
negie Hero Fund commission.
One explanation of this visual per
version might be that because the fund
is administered from Pittsburg deeds
of self-sacrifice arising In the state of
Pennsylvania or the adjoining state of
Ohio would come In more easily for
notice. That the mere Intimation that
heroes are bred only in the small area
close to the source of the Carnegie for
tune is so preposterous as to carry its
own refutation on Its face,
Surely heroism does not consist in
claiming a reward. Heroism is being
developed every day in every state in
the union. There is heroism on the
farm and In the field as well as In the
mine and factory in the everyday
walk of life on land as well as in the
precarious vocations on water. The
geography of heroism is a world-wide
geography rather than one confined to
the narrow limits ot a half dozen
state all of which together could be
swallowed up In the one commonwealth
The administration of the Carnegie
hero fund will have to broaden out if
It wants to avoid becoming a mere
local institution for the place where Its
headquarters happen to be established.
CIVIL SERVICE ORQAXIZATIOS.
The permanent organization of the
civil service commissions throughout
the country which baa Just been
formed at Washington cannot fall to
be beneficial, as regards both Improve
ment of the system and growth of sen
timent In favor of maintaining It. The
meeting of representatives of the state
and municipal civil service commis
sions at the national capital in connec
tion with the United States commis
slon has served to call public attention
to the rapid extension of the merit
system which has been accomplished
for the most part quietly and in spite
of innumerable obstacles. Coincident
with the various act of congress and
executive orders by which the great
bulk of the federal patronage has been
brought within the classified service
Important progress has been made In
recent years for Including state and
municipal appointments within a si ml
lar rule, but the results have been
The popular notions of the reform
derived from the federal classified
service are generally vague. The con
ditlons therefore call for a comprehen
sive organization ot all the widely sep
arated state and municipal agencies
The field for it usefulness is almost
boundless, particularly under munici
pal government. In which the tendency
toward nonpartisan service is distinct
and strong. The merit system. In
deed, ha a vital relation to the uni
versal demand tor radical general re
form In municipal politics.
Concentration by organization of all
the civil service commissions ought to
have equally Important effect In Im
provement of the classified service It
self, which is conceded to be imperfect
In some important respects. Its meth
od do not always provide adequate
teat ot merit. Th most effective
weapon of Its enemies have been
drawn from the arsenal ot its own
shortcomings and no greater service
could be rendered by It organized
official guardians than by perfecting
It rule so that they would more cer
tainly ascertain merit and fitness.
The- great measure ot success which
the reformed system has already
achieved In protecting appointing
power from the pressure) of mere po
litical workers Inspired by hunger for
spoils Is Its abundant vindication.
There is room, however, as its most
Intelligent friends realise, to raise far
higher the quality of ellglbles from
which appointments and promotions
shall be made in the public service.
Upon the success of the organized tal
ent now employed in supervision in
accomplishing this very much depends
the further extension of the merit system.
'ELASTIC C I'll RE AC IV
Prof. Taussig of Harvard university.
In his recent address before a meeting
of New York bankers, has done valua
ble service in combatting the emphasis
which in some quarters is put on the
necessity of a more elastic currency as
a safeguard against serious panic or
recurrent money market stringency.
There may be substantial reasons for
a conservatively guarded currency of
greater flexibility than our system af
fords, but this Is by no means what 1
aimed at by those elements loudest in
demanding "a more elastic currency."
As a matter of fact those Interests
are mainly speculative and what they
want is a method of suddenly expand
ing the currency when excessive pecu
lation causes the demand rate ot inter
est to go high. But, however high it
may mount, the fact almost invariably
remains that the rate of time loans,
which is the rate that concerns com
merce and business, is not much it at
all affected. The rise ot the demand
rate, though it may be severe on the
reckless speculators, is In reality a
wholesome restraint on speculation,
which otherwise would go to lengths
disastrous to universal business and
So far as those interests which em
brace the public welfare are con
cerned, no one has brought out more
forcefully than Prof. Taussig the point
that what is heeded is not bo much
currency reform as banking reform.
The last decade has witnessed a vast
alteration, particularly in the east.
whereby strictly commercial banking
institutions, acting independently and
semi-Jndicially on business proposi
tions, have been steadily supplanted
by the idea of direct or indirect iden
tification with promotion and specula
tion. Various kinds of banking, too,
which were formerly conducted Inde
pendently ot each other, are now con
centrated In one hand, or one set ot
hands. Commercial banks, state and
national, are closely associated with
investment houses, with large private
banking firms that undertake to
finance and promote great ventures in
new business fields; with trust com
panies and with individuals whose pri
mary interest is not In banking. While
such a combination means economy in
management expenses and makes It
possible to earn two or three profits
Instead of one, it also makes certain a
greater locking up ot capital.
With greater risks and commit
ments, the tendency is to smaller ac
tual reserve, however It may be con
cealed, less ability to meet sudden de
mands and greater danger of embar
rassment if the unexpected happens.
Clearly the schemes which have been
proposed for sudden currency Infla
tion upon sudden emergency could not
obviate this fundamental defect of
banking, but would rather Increase the
danger by encouraging the prevailing
tendency ot banking. A wide field ex
ists for restrictive legislation concern
ing state banks and trust companies as
to cash reserves, reports and exami
nations, but after all the main reliance
is prudent and conservative manage
ment. It is noteworthy that almost
universally western bankers, who have
not been carried away from the Ideal
of Independent banking as eastern
banker have been, are more and more
enforcing the vital necessity of conserv
atism and turning a deaf ear to the
plea for such makeshifts as most
forms of "elastic currency."
THE COUNTRY HIGftTTATS.
Coincident with the effort to secure
through public control equal rights
and fair charges on railroads, another
long neglected phase of transportation

Improvement of the common high
way The movement la general and
In the more progressive states 1 be
coming practical. '
It 1 significant that two state as
widely separated by distance and gen
eral conditions as Missouri and Penn
sylvania should at the same time be
disposed toward extraordinary action.
Many reasons have been assigned for
special sessions of the legislatures, but
it is unprecedented for a governor to
consider seriously, as Governor Folk
Is doing, the calling of the legislature
solely to deal with the problem of
good country roads and to propose
constitutional amendments to secure
the power necessary to a broad and
thorough solution ot It, and for the
state press and public opinion to favor
such action. This I hardly more ex
traordinary, however, than the project
endorsed by the governor of Pennsyl
vania and enthusiastically supported
In the state, to build a great macad
amized highway between Philadelphia
and Pittsburg, a trunk line country
road, as it were, with branches
through more remote region. These
propositions, perhaps the most notable
among many of similar character, do
show how popular Interest I centering
on the carriage of freight outside of
It is high time that attention should
be compelled to the fact that a large
part of the prodigious tonnage ot the
railroads ha to be moved over country
roads. They are practically a half
century behind the requirements ot
th tint. Financisl resource and en-
glneerlng and mechanical skill during
that time have been concentrated on
only that fraction of transportation
which relates to railroads nd deep
water navigation. Thus while the
long railroad haul has been amazingly
cheapened, the enormous economy
that might be effected on the country
road haul has been neglected, so that
wagon carriage for a few miles fre
quently costs as much as rail carriage
for as many hundred miles.
The first step toward solution of the
problem obviously must be legislative
provision of up to date means. The
rond law of most states sre antiqua
ted and in some, like Missouri, the con
stitutions stand in the way of better
ment. No system of law will meet
the case which does not facilitate the
employment of capital in n large and
permanent way, as the last session of
the Virginia legislature realised wheu
it wiped out the futile and obsolete
poll tax method and authorized county
and township bonding operations for
solid highway improvements.
Discussions which the last year or
two have occupied so much of the time
of farmers' Institutes in Nebraska and
other western states have resulted In
very considerable road Improvement,
but their chief value has been educa
tional. The exigency calls for radical
reform. The growth of rural popula
tion and freight, the extension of ru
ral mail service, the application of
mechanical motors to country road
vehicles and many other causes are
pointing the way and irresistibly
pressing for an economy of transporta
tion off the railroads scarcely less im
portant In a long view than that which
ha been accomplished on them. The
multiplying signs of popular realiza
tion of this fact are most auspicious
and should mean a revolution within
a few years in the means ot country
While complaint continues ot over
elaboration of the American high
school curriculum in connection with
the comparatively small proportion of
the school population availing them
selves of it, the experience of the
manual training schools and institutes
of technology is to the exact contrary.
The number of young men crowding
these schools was never so great as the
statistics of attendance now being pub
lished show it to have been the last
Until very recently the technical
graduate had to face the same preju
dices In practical life that confront the
mere college graduate, but that has all
given way to the demonstrated effi
ciency of his training. There Is now
demand for him in every, industry in
volving mechanical science and skill,
and rapid promotion follows practical
experience. Popular appreciation of
these facts lie bark of the remarkable
movement in technical education.
At the same time it is beginning to
come fairly home to the average mind
that the field for the applied sciences
Is Illimitable and that the industrial
opportunities are multiplying with .in
credible rapidity. While the west,
which the young man was admonished
to seek a generation ago, is in some
sense narrowing, the institutions for
technological instruction are, by spe
cial training and adaptation, opening
to youth a wider prospect which has
no limitation ot east or west, north or
Several big life insurance companies
have reduced the maximum line of lia
bility they will assume on any one life.
One company which was formerly will
ing to issue a life policy for as much
as a million dollars, now proclaims Its
policy for the future to be to refuse
applications for more than $250,000.
This Is only another indication ot the
return to sanity on the part of the
over-reaching life Insurance companies
called to account by the Armstrong in
vestigation, who found most of their
troubles growing out of the eagerness
for limitless business at any cost.
Safety in life insurance, as in any
other kind of Insurance, rest on the
number of risks rather than on the
size of the risks.

In the natural course of events, and by
the general suffrage. Mr. Schurs came to
be known as thev leading Independent In
American politics, it was a position which
carried stings with its honors. Yet the
very mixture of taunts with welcomes
that he received from both political parties
alternately during the past twenty years,
was the most strlking tribute possible to
the unselfishness of hi course and the
genuineness of his Influence. When his
simple uprightness could not endure the
Blaine taint, the republicans called out
after him that he was only a morose and
fantastic crank whom nobody regarded;
but when they were ahle to exhibit him
again on their side in the contest for hon
est money, they promptly discovered that
his eminence of character and soundness
of political judgment was beyond dispute.
Latterly, the old animosities had happily
become dulled, and Mr. Schurs was ac

speech. This is what makes his loss no

of It without Niagara or th Mississippi."
Mr. Schurs could not so be described as
a great elemental force or a towering na
tional figure. His removal, however, will
long leave us with a sense of "something
that is gone." It Is as If the American
sunshine were for a time dimmed; as if
we could not see moral issues in so clear
a light; as If our dubious and dark political
problems could not so easily have flashes
of truth snd eourage thrown upon them.
That buoyant and blithe spirit has left us;
that life-long Indignation against tyranny,
whether in Prussia or the Philippines, is
quenched; but the virtue that went out of
Mr. Schurs to animate good causes and
spur on lesser men, will long remain a
cherished memory and a oontlngous power.

Day dawns, and bids the blushing sky
The flute-voiced birds take up the cry;
And nearer home, beneath the eaves.
The gnarled old maple's tender leaves
That vhlvered in the midnight rain,
Now whisper at my window pane:
The genial sun peeps o'er the hill
And laugha across my window silL
Kyes quiver under sleepy lids
This is the King himself who bids
I rise and open the window wide.
The sun-kissed breeses charge and rids
Straight through the breach in merry
And scale the walls and fairly shout:
They make me captive to th King,
They pluck at me and bid ma slug
Their paean to the Golden Day. ,
Whose conquering slogan Is their gay
"Good Morning 1"
They frolic here, they scamper there,
They clutch the singing birds in air.
On all tha world their music beats ,
Until the captive world repeats:
Heart calls to heart. The surly wight.
Who scorned his neighbor yesternight.
With smiling visage stops to greet
That neighbor In th busy street:
"Good Mornlnfc!" j ' '
O! joyous day! O! smile of God, .
To hearten all who toll and plod.
We hail thee, conquerer and King!
Wa hug our golden chains and sing:
