That there will be national legisla
tion for extending and perfecting in
spection of meat and meat products
and the places and processes of their
preparation so far as interstate and
foreign commerce is concerned, Is now
seen to be necessary tad Inevitable.
Public sentiment Is all one war on the
general proposition,' and those who fere
engaged In the slaughter and packing
industries profess willingness to have
larger and stricter regulations. Ob
viously, the Impression in the public
mind at home apd abroad requires
such legislation as a purely business
necessity for rehabilitating and pre
serving the market for our meats, if
for no other reason.
It is, of course, a legislative func
tion, and the president, by his mes
sage transmitting the report of the
special Investigators who examined
conditions at the Chicago packing
houses, has signally emphasized the re
sponsibility of congress. This was
merely In addition to the fact that the
Beverldge bill for amplified Inspection
and regulation had passed the senate
as a rider to the sundry civil appropria
tion and was already before the house.
The president, on the representations
In the report of his agents, simply
urges immediate legislation.
As the cae stands the Chicago pack
ing interests challenge the correctness
Of many of those statements and ob

of the pending Beverldge bill as un

stock. These interests, although they
are not the only ones to be consid
ered, arc of vast and vital importance,
and it will be agreed on all hands that
they" are worthy of the serious atten
tion which congress is disposed to give
to them in the preparation of a meas
ure In line with the president's rec
But there Is no getting away from
the Imperative necessity of evolving a
system of Inspection so thorough and
comprehensive as , to set the public
mind at reBt regarding that vast por
tion of the food supply which comes
through the packing houses. Under
existing conditions it is especially in
cumbent on the packing Interests to
co-operate to this end, making It clear
to the world that they are pursuing no
ulterior or merely obstructive pur
pose. And In any event matters have
come to such a pass that, congress
must settle the question at this session
If only to protect the meat and live
stock industries from further damage.
TBE SCNATK P THK CANAL.
The prospect of a dead-set between
tbe two branches of congress regard
ing the Panama canal Is especially ex
asperating at this time when the state
of affairs on the. Isthmus Is becoming
critical. Nothing less can be foreshad
owed by the threats reported i from
Washington to attach in the senate a
Bea-level requirement to the bill car
rying the appropriation for canal work
for the ensuing year.
Until congress met no one dreamed
that the question of a sea-level canal
would be seriously raised even in the
senate canal committee, and even after
it had returned a majority report in
favor of that type the general belief
was that the senate would decide
against It. That belief now appears
to have been incorrect. Beyond ques
tion the house stands with the admin
istration for a canal with locks. An
appropriation rider requiring a sea
level cnal could not. therefore, be
construed otherwise than aa a direct
slap at the president and as originat
ing in hostility to the successful pros
ecution of canal construction. Its first
effect would be to precipitate an ardu
ous struggle between the house and
Meantime the canal authorities are
reiterating their warnings that con
gressional delay haa gone as far as It
can go without bringing actual work
on the isthmus . to a standstill. Sen
ators, before they push this matter to
the last extreme, should realize that
they will be held by the country to a
strict responsibility for the conse
PENNSYLVANIA REPUBLIC AN t .
All reports, whether from friendly
or hostile sources, agree that the re
cent Pennsylvania republican conven
tion was of an unprecedented char
acter in that state, being free from ma
chine dictation and registering the de
liberate Judgment of the party at
large. In no state in the union haa
boas autocracy gone to greater lengths
or more ruthlessly Imposed upon the
people both tickets and platforms pre
determined by those in control of party
It la significant that Pennsylvania
newspapers, commenting on the con
trasting condltiona of thla year's con
vention very generally declare that
those days are over, and point out
that In lta proceedings and results no
club was brandished, no delegate
driven against his will, no cut and
dried program rammed through. These
statements are strongly corroborated
by the result, tor whatever may be
said aa to the ticket, which is of more
Immediate local concern, there h
nowhere been expression of more pro
gressive republicanism than Is. con
talned in tbe Pennsylvania platform.
Though more elaborate than state
platforms usually are expected to be,
it takes advanced ground on all vital
issues, evading and temporizing with
none, and is especially strong not
merely In general commendation of
the president's policy, buf in specific
approval of Its salient points, with spe
cial emphasla upon his attitude
towards public control of great corpor
ations and cognate questions.
r Such a showing In the great state
of Pennsylvania Is by Itself a most
notable and conspicuous sign at this
Juncture when the nationwide strug
gle is commencing in the congres
sional and state legislative districts
which will determine Whether Presi
dent Roosevelt is to be sustained dur
ing the last half of his term of office.
It ought to move his supporters In
other states to bestir themselves to
make sure that no failure come
through their default.
ANOTHER THADK EXCURSION.
The Commercial club Is arranging
for another trade excursion to cover
for the most part Nebraska territory,
which looka exclusively to Omaha as
the commercial metropolis. The suc
cess of the projected excursion Is, of
coarse, assured In advance, but the de
gree of success will depend more or
less upon the number of local jobberl
and manufacturers who participate
The trade excursion has become part
of the regular machinery of our Com
mercial club for enlarging the sphere
of Omaha's business activity. Nothing
else has been found that so well serves
the purpose of keeping our captains of
commerce in close personal touch with
the demands of the territory to whose
patronage they cater.
The result of this cultivated friend
ship. is seen In our gratifying industrial
statistics, indicating steadily increasing
sales, and In the unprecedented growth
of the jobbing business which has
forced a practical reconstruction Of
Omaha's wholesale district to provide
the necessary accommodations.
The tide of our trade expansion,
however, hag not reached its height,
but continues to swell, and one big
factor in the movement is conceded to
be the .periodic trade excursions as
conducted under the auspices of the
club with growing popularity both here
at home and among our commercial
The steady increase of the trust
funds in the custody of the state treas
urer emphasizes again the necessity
of modifying the provisions of the
constitution governing the investment
of these monies. The constitution
limits the investment securities to
United States "and state bonds and
bonds of counties in this state, the .re
sult being a forced purchase of bonds
of far-away Btates because of Inability
to get. enough county bonds and atae
warrants to keep the money at home.
Many of the investments of these trust
funds are- maturing and before the
time for reinvestment comes the
authorised securities should be en
larged to include properly secured
municipal and school district bonds of
Nebraska cities and school districts.
The courts wlU .be asked to de
termine In a test case whether the

office. We were under the impression
that this point had been raised In an
other county and settled by a court
decision. How many test cases .are
required to find out what the law is
on this point?
There Is nothing new in the an

OTHER LANDS THAN OIR9.
One of eeveral reasons' advanced In ex
plaining the growing discontent of edu
cated people of India against alien govern
ment Is that tha prevailing system of edu
cation, necessarily English. Inculates prin
ciples of nationhood. An Etiglish professor
in an Indian college accounts for it In this
way: "The answer which almost all Indians
give to the' question, "Whst has the English
literature taught you?' is that it has taught
them liberty to think for themselves; it
has freed them from slavery to authority.
This, perhaps, is not the lesson which a
German or a Spaniard would extract from
English literature, for the value and sug
gest I veness of any new Idea depends largely
upon the previously existing stock to which
it is conjoined; but the Intellectual ante
cedents of the Indians were suclv that this
Idea more than any other appeared to him
novel and suggestive. The characteristic
of all Indian teaching In the past, whether
Hindu or Mohamedan, has been reverence
for nuthority. The young scholar has been
taught to Justify his view by citing a great
pandit or maulvi. and when he' had elected
to follow a certain school of thought, It
was sheer blasphemy to question the teach
ing of any of Its great masters. With such
antecedents It I not surprising that the
moat wonderful and illuminating Idea In
English literature should have been the
freedom and Independence to which then,
they found themselves suddenly Introduced
Into a world In which Independent private
Judgment was a duty, and the conscious ex
ercise of It a virtue."
It Is said that the new Russian minister
of foreign affairs, M." Ivolsky, was among
those who did their best to avert the dis
astrous war between Russia and Japan,
The Paris correspondent of the Iondon
Times relates an Incident, for the truth of
which he vouches, which occurred when
M. Ivolsky represented Russia In jHpan
before his transfer to Copenhagen and dur
ing M. Wltte's tour of inspection of the
Manchurlan railway. M. Wltte was at
Dalny when SI. Ivolsky, In agreement With,
the Japanese statesman. Count Ito, sounded
him as to whether he would not also
visit Japan. Th mikado and his govern
ment were prepared, if he would do 0,
to place at his disposal thi residence cus
tomarily used only for the accomodation
of foreign royalty. The plan Concelyed
by M. Ivolsky and approved by the em
peror of Japan and his advisers was to
bring about a modus Vivendi with Rus
sia whloh should avert all danger of war
and crea-t! normal If not friendly relations
between the two countries. . Without the
extension of any formal Invitation, the
Idea was communicated to M. W'itte. His
answer was. a refusal couched in cool terms,
leaving no doubt as to the unfavorable re
ply that would be received from St. Pet
ersburg If any such proposal werp officially
made. This Incident, adds the corespondent,
has considerable Importance In connection
with M. Ivolsky's appointment as minister
for foreign affairs.
Two hundred and seventeen architects
from almost every country In the world
entered for the competition with designs
for Mr. Carnegie's "Palace of Peace" at
The Hague, within, the walls of which fu
ture tribunals will attempt to settle Inter
national disputes, suggest disarmaments,
and make peace inevitable. No fewer than
.038 drawings were sent In. The result of
the contest, as already announced In the
cable dispatches, was that the first prlie
had been awarded tfo M. Cordonhler for
his design, which appears to be a splendidly
executed conception of the style of the cha-
tcaus of northern France.
By the acceptance of his design M. Cor
donnler will receive 5,0. His drawing
shows the main building flanked by high
towers, two of which are at each end of
the facade. The chief feature of the In
terior will be a magVliWnt "Hall of Ar
bitration." where. It Is hoped by the dis
ciples of Bloch and Carnegie, the fate of
nations may be tranquilly decided.
M. Cordonnler Is 62 years of age and has
had a most distinguished career. He de
signed the Pasteur statue for Paris, the
'Hotel de Vllle at Dunkirk, and, among 170
competitors, won tha first prixe In th
International contest for the Stock ex

At a recent French cabinet council, held
at tha Elisee, it was decided to order a
judicial inquiry into the'' circumstances of
a complaint submitted to the ministry, re
garding an alleged Infringement of the lib
arty of Usbor. About 1,300 hands engaged
In a steel foundry at Vlllerupt. in the de
partment of Meurthe et Moselle, were dls
missed, and a list of their names was for
warded to the managers of similar works
In the district. A deputation from these
workmen visited the minister of Jhe In.
terlor and directed his attention to the In
Jury thus Inflicted upon them. They
claimed to have been prevented from find
lng other work, and added that eighty-two
of their number who had found employ.
ment elsewhere after their dismissal had
been discharged by their new employers as
soon as their identity had been made
known. According to a semi-official an
nouncsment the minister of the Interior
has caused assistance to be sent to the
workmen thus deprived of an opportunity
of earning their living. This significant
decision, together with the appointment
announced in the Journal Official, of
commission o draft a government bill
granting to cltisena In the service of the
state certain of the rights already sc
corded by the law to trade unions. Is re.
garded aa a pretty plain Indication of the
attitude of the present French cabinet to.
wards the labor problem.
The British premier Is an adept t "Jol.
lying" delegations that visit him In sup
port of the various causes they have at
heart, but there is no reason to doubt
his sincerity In assuring the delegation of
40A women suffragists that he heartily ac
cepted In principle the cause they advo
cated, and that personally he regarded
women as no less qualified to exercise the
right to vote than the men. Sir Henry
Campbell-Bannerman', in this statement
probably reflected the predominant sentl-
ment of tho liberal party, which naturally
finds In the woman suffrage Idea some
thing theoretically In harmony with the
liberal tradition. The psemler gave much
dissatisfaction, however, to the delegation
by declining to make this extension of the
franchise a part of the government's work
ing program. He would commit himself
no farther than to, say that the cause
would probably triumph In England before
many yeara had passed.

tlonal government have given rise to legal
questions of some Intricacy, and the whole
subject of water rights In the sparsely
watered regions of the west Is one Of
great Importsnce. A recent derision made
by President Roosevelt in regsrd to the
respective claims of the reclamation serv
ice and of private enterprises Is worthy
of attention as Indicating the policy to be
pursued In the future.
One of the most extensive and Important
Items of the reclamation program has been
the execution 0 the Kremmllng reservoir
project. Involving the construction of a
dam in Uore canyon of the Grand river,
Colorado, the water thus Impounded to
be used for the Irrigation of lands In Cali
fornia and Arlsona, 1,200 miles away. The
canyon was reserved for reclamation pur
poses after the enterprise of David H.
Moffatt and associates for the building of
a railroad from Denver to Salt Lake City
had been launched. The securing of a
right-of-way through th canyon was not
absolutely essential to the success of the
rallrond building project, hut It wss so
Important that th projectors have for
four years been fighting the government's
plans for reserving the canyon for recla
mation purposes. 7n view of the fsct that
there was no money available for the
building of the Kremmllng reservoir and
no likelihood of obtaining any for several
years, Judge ITallett of the fnlted States
circuit court decided that the Interior de
partment had no good reason for with
holding its consent to the construction of
a railroad through the canyon. Secretary
Hitchcock appealed from the decision, and
after listening to the arguments of the
Colorado cspltallsts who are Interested
In the railroad the president ordered the
His grounds for such action are that
the development hy the railroad of a grest
coal bearing district In Colorado IS" Of
more Importance than the irrigation of
territory outside of that state, especially
since the Irrigation project would have to
wait an Indefinite number of years for
even a beginning, whereas a considerable
part of the work ontb railroad has al
ready been done. In these great Irriga
tion projects, besides, consideration must
be had for Jealousies between different
states. At this distance. It seems as If
the cltiaens of Colorado would hare had
ground for complaint against the. reclama
tion sen-Ice if the original opposition to
the building of the railroad through Gore
canyon had been persisted in.
