SPEAKER C AH SOy n.Y APJOVRSMEST.
Speaker Cannons suggestion the

for congress to adjourn before July Is
interpreted as a bint of the necessity
of greater expedition of business than
there has been up to this stage of the
session. There Is such an accumula
tion of unfinished legislation that only
the eagerness of both sides of the
party line to get back to the congres
sional districts can now bring an early
It is no secret that an arduous
struggle has been planned for the con
trol of the next house. Although a
change In fifty-six districts Is required
to wipe out the present republican ma
jority, the possibilities are not really
as hopeless for the democrats as they
appear on their face. Reaction In the
congressional elections midway in a
presidential term Is a familiar fact in
our political history and represents a
natural tendency. The opposition
counts on such a recession of the pop
ular wave as will render doubtful

velt's personal leadership two years

publican candidates for congress, and

Both sides, therefore, are anxious
to get on the fighting ground as early
as possible. Most of the present
members, both- republicans and dem
ocrats, will either be renominated or
are candidates for renomlnation, while
a third of the members of the senate
are directly and personally Interested
In the election of legislatures. It is
this Interest to which Speaker Cannon
astutely appeals to hasten legislative
business, for it Is apt to have more in
fluence than consideration of public
Interest for that purpose.
OKLAHOMA ASD ISD1AS TERRITORY
The substantial statehood issue be
tween the senate and house Is whether
Oklahoma and Indian territory shall
be admitted as one state without re
gard to Arizona and New Mexico.
Though much of the debate in both
houses related to disposal of the latter
two territories. It was really inciden
tal to the main question regarding
Oklahoma and Indian Territory.
The house rules enabled the major
ity party to put through in short order
the so-called omnibus bill which un
dertakes to dispose of all the terri
tories. As the president and a pow
erful element in all parties oppose the
admission of Arizona and New Mex
ico at this time as separate states, the
house bill arranged to Join them in
one state. At once, however, there
was manifested strong .objection in
both to such a merger. It placed a
formidable weapon in the hands of
senate opponents of the house bill and
they were able to pass a bill virtually
providing for the separate admission
of Oklahoma and Indian Territory.
The indications point to an agree
ment in conference which, whatever
it may do with (he other two terri
tories, is likely to be along the line of
the senate bill, providing an enabling
act for Oklahoma and Indian Terri
tory. As they have a larger popula
tion when combined than Nebraska
and constitute a fairly settled and
worthy commonwealth, It is difficult
to see how any proper Interest, politi
cal or other, would suffer by their in
dependent admission to the sisterhood
PRESIDENT CASSATTS STATEMENT.
The statement which President Cas
satt of the Pennsylvania Central Is re
liably quoted In one of the June maga
zines as having recently made for pub
lication relates to a phase of rebate
and like unfairness which Is bound to
come Into greater prominence, namely,
coercion by big shippers of the rail
roads for wrongful favors.
Beyond doubt railroad officials have
been voluntarily responsible for a vast
amount of secret rate demoralization.
It Is both commonly known and a
matter of public record In many cases
that the motive back of such rate
favors was the selfish profit of those
who were in position to influence
transportation tariffs and services.
But President Cassatt emphasizes
the other class of wrongs which have
been "forced upon carriers," as he
puts it, by shippers of Immense ton
nage against the will of the responsi
ble railroad officials and against the
true Interests of the railroad compan
ies themselves, as well as of the pub
lic. The extent of the abuses thus
originating has evidently been far
greater than is as yet generally real
ized. President Cassatt gives two
notable cases of such "coercion" in his
own experience, whereby the Pennsyl
vania Central within a few years was
subjected to the tyranny of the Oil
trust and the Steel trust, each of them
having disposal of prodigious freights.
During a crisis in the road's financial
position the Standard Oil magnates
confronted it with the menace, which
they were absolutely able to carry out,
of diverting from it 2,000,000 barrels
of oil a year unless a rebate of 2 0
cents a barrel was conceded, while a
great steel company combination,
f 10.000.000 worth of whose freight
annually was handled, threatened to
build a competing line through Pitts
burg. These cases are extraordinary
only for the bulk of the tonnage In
volved, identically the same kind of
influence having powerfully affected
the movement and rates of all big
This class of facts demonstrates
that the establishment through public
control of equal shippers' rights by
absolute annihilation of rebate and all
equivalent discriminations is vital to
legitimate transportation Interests. As
the strengthened interstate commerce
law. supplemented by like legislation
for late rata le commerce, has effect It
will be better realised how powerful
and necessary a weapon has been
forged for the protection of the rail
road stockholders' welfare against
consplrscy and coercion by powerful
freight tyrants as well as against
grafting railroad officials.
President Cassatt professes on these
grounds to favor government regula
tion and to have 'told the president
himself when he made his first recom
mendation on this subject four years
ago that I believe him to be In the
right." It Is Indeed most extraordi
nary that responsible railroad officials
as a body should so far throughout the
contest for equal freight rights have
resisted the effort to write In the law
the rule which summarizes those
rights and confers the power to en
force them. His pronouncement Ib a
welcome sign if it means a reversal of
THE RKFUBLICAS STATE MESS.
There are approximately 275 repub
lican newspapers published in Ne
braska. These papers with few ex
ceptions are true exponents of repub
lican principles and voice the real sen
timent of the rank and file of the party
in their respective localities. The re
publican state press of Nebraska is al
most a unit in re-enforcing the legisla
tive program of President Roosevelt,
and particularly the position taken by
the president in respect to the control
and regulation of corporations. They
see clearly that the effectiveness of the
rate regulation legislation depends
upon the continued support of the
president In the two houses of con
gress, and for that reason nearly every
republican paper in Nebraska Is out
spoken against sending any one with
corporation strings to represent Ne
braska in Washington.
With special reference to the sena
torial canvass now in progress it is in
teresting to note the line-up, so far as
it has taken place, of the republican
state papers. Out of the 275 some
160 have so far given some expression
of favor or preference. Of this number
about fifteen would like to have Sena
tor Millard returned for a second term.
Not more than four or five show any
Inclination for John L. Webster, while
about thirty are actively enlisted In
the cause for Norris Brown On the
other hand, those who see in Edward
Rosewater the logical candidate for
the present situation number, over one
hundred, of which more than fifty are
unequivocally for him, while the re
mainder express sentiments friendly in
Newspaper sentiment when not man
ufactured for a price is a pretty good
index to popular sentiment. If the un
purchasable republican newspaper ed
itors were entrusted with the nomina
tion of the party candidate for United
States senator from Nebraska, Edward
Rosewater would have the endorse
ment on the first ballot by an over
While County Treasurer rink is ad
monishing taxpayers to register their
kicks with the assessor, he is not in it
for plcturesqueness of language with
Treasurer Todd of Garfield county. Tho
latter by public notice informs delin
quent taxpayers that proceedings are
about to be begun in hie bailiwick un
der the scavenger law which adds va
rious penalties and docketing fees to
tax bills left unliquidated, adding:
"Remember, I had nothing to do with
making this law or In making the tax
levy. I have no control of your 'cuss
ing' propensities and nave no objec
tions to a little mild swearln' when
you come, to pay your taxes provided
no ladles are present. But pay up,
please, and avoid the penalties." With
an energetic treasurer like this Gar
field county's tax list ought to be
cleaned up in short meter.
The Russian duma doubtless con
cluded that one snub more or less
from the throne could make but little
difference to men who have known
little else for ages. But the cause of
liberty in Russia is gainer by the
patience shown by the first Parliament
in dealing with an autocratic ruler
and his headstrong advisers.

appropriations to pay railroads im

The editor of The Be Is so well known
In Nebraska and the west to need no
introduction. For years Rosewater h
fought the railroad and other corporation
Interests. No one can deny that he has
strong Qualities and would be able to do
much for the state If he m In the United
States senate. Norris Brown hss also been
prominently mentioned for several months
past In connection with the senatorshlp
and In fighting the railroads In the rail
road tax cases he has won signal victory
and during the. time he ha been In pubflc
life has shown himself courageous and vie
torlous. It seems almost too bad that these
two men should aspire for this position at
the same time as they both represent so
nearly the same principles. Certain It Is
whlch-ever of these two men Is chosen for
the position, we will have a senator who
will do much for the state.

In Washington they are whispering a
tory regarding a very distinguished states
man who attended the birthday party In
honor of Speaker Cannon. He and some
thirsty friends devoted themselves with
less wisdom than assiduity to the bountiful
supply of refreshments available on that oc
casion. Consequently he was In rather a
double-visloned frame of mind when he
reached home. That evening he wore for
the first time one of a new batch of shirt
which his wife had bought for him. This
fact bore heavily on his mind when he
began to undress. He tried half a dozen
way to pull off the new-fangled garment.
but failed, and finally called to his wife,
who waa sleeping In an adjoining apart

you, but I wish you would show me how
to get out of this confounded shirt." The
