KtDHAHKA i.V TUK SKXATK.
It will goon be forty years glnce Ne
braska was admitted into the union.
n those forty years Nebraska has
been represented in the senate from
time to time by various men whose
nblllttea commanded recognition for
this state In the councils of the nation.
Among the first senators who Intro
duced Nebraska Into the capital at
Washington was the late General John
M. Thayer, who rendered honorable
and noteworthy service to the people.
The late Senator Taddock was an in
dustrious and effective worker In the
public interest, although by no means
attracting the attention accorded to
General Van YVyck, who succeeded him
and whom he In turn again succeeded.
General Manderaon, during his sena
torial career, brought distinction upon
Nebraska, as well as upon himself, by
his elevation to the position of presi
dent of the senate. Senator William
V. Allen, although attached to a min
ority third party, was recognlred as
one of the ablest constitutional lawyers
In that body, and Senator Thurston's
brilliant oratory overcame his mistakes
Without disparaging the more recent
senators. It can be truthfully said that
Nebraska has at various times set a
relatively high standard .for its repre
sentation in the senate, and there is no
good reason why the highest standard
should at any time be lowered. Our
senators cannot all be brilliant orators,
or experienced parliamentarians, or
thorough-grounded constitutional law
yers, but they can and should be the
most representative citizens of whom
the commonwealth boasts.
Nebraska Is not behind other states
In men of recognized achievements and
commanding ability. in men who are
experienced in government affairs and
well versed students of public ques
tions. If Nebraska is careful to send
senators to Washington who will give
the state a standing anions other
states and In whom all can take pride,
we raise ourselves in the public esti
mation. If, on the other hand, Ne
braska prefers to experiment with un
knowns, or to commission mere agents
of tho great corporate Interests, our
prestige is sure to suffer, while other
states take the lead in accomplishing
results for the' people and as factors In
YOVKO AMUr OFFICERS' rAT.
General Corbin's deprecatory state
ment to the graduating claBS at West
Point, that the young army officers
must for the next five years work for
lower pay than Is earned by carpenters
and bricklayers, deserves the criticism
which it has promptly received. The
assertion Is not true In point of fact;
for, while for a limited season the pres
ent extraordinary wages In the build
ing trades In large cities may exceed
that of fresh West Point graduates In
army service, the average "pay" of the
latter exceeds that of the former.
If the term pay be narrowed to mere
money wage, the fact remains that the
United States government, which Is a
good paymaster, gives Its young officers
a guaranteed employment for life In
godd times or bad times, with many
additional allowances equivalent to
money. Beyond that, however, is the
opportunity and certainty of promotion
with, larger emoluments, honor and in
fluence, which should be reckoned In
It would seem more fit If General
Corbin, Instead of enlarging upon the
Ingratitude and Inequity of the govern
ment, had emphasized the great debt
and obligation every young officer owes
to the nation. It had supported each
free of charge for four years, while it
was giving him a magnificent educa
tion which would Insure lucrative em
ployment If at any time he should leave
the military service.
Whether the mere money remunera
tion of our army officers be adequate
or not, the fact remains that It Is
larger than most foreign governments
pay, and in any event the nation opens
to the young officer a career. If he is
of the right stuff and appreciates his
advantage, which falls to the fortune
of but very few.
Henry Watterson's protest against
"sectionalism," In his address at
Brown university, Is a note in harmony
with the spirit of the times. But sec
tionalism, although an obstructionist
force, has, In fact, been so broken and
weakened within a few decades that
in most practical situations Its battle
with progressive Americanism Is no
longer doubtful, but universally as
sumed to be lost before it has begun.
There is an almost Immeasurable gulf
between the state of mind which about
the time of the adoption of the na
tional constitution led citizens of New
York to refuse to permit New Jersey
farmers to sell firewood and produce
In the city market, or later caused the
southern states to stop the nutlonal
malls, and that which now demands
national regulation of interstate com
merce, national meat inspection and
pure food laws. Sectionalism at bot
tom is Ignorance, of which suspicion,
jealousy and narrow exclusiveness are
the top phasea.
Next to the civil war, which forced
the north and the south to see and
know each other better In spite of
themselves, the compulsory, continu
ous commingling of the people through
the amazing Industrial development of
the last few decades, for which the re
suit of the war paved the way, has
done most to break down the barriers
of sectional Ignorance. Within ten
years lnter-rom.nunicatlon has been
rapidly taking form on north and
south railroad lines from gulf and
south Atlantic ports, so that an al
ready vast direct commerce with Its
potential interests and illuminating lu
tercourse Is already In existence.
SecUoDalUtu, which, la Mr. Waiter?
son's pertinent phrase, "deals with the
remote and unfamiliar," had the very
foundation cut from under it by tho es
tablishment of such conditions. The
people of all the sections arc being
brought in contact with and mr.de fa
miliar to each other." It is impossible
to overestimate the cumulative effect
of the play of such forces, with the su
peradded influence of periodical and
newppaper literature, of the great edu
cational Institutions, of the alternating
summer and winter vacation migra
tions north and south and many other
characteristic circumstances of modern
Yet the precedents and tendencies of
the sectionalism of nn earlier time re
main as a fact which has to be recog
nized and whose michief has to be per
sistently encountered. The spirit,
whose most dangerous manifestations
have been between north and south,
of course, survives in one degree or
another In all parts of the country.
But the notable and encouraging cir
cumstance 1b that that spirit Is no
longer dominant, even. if occasionally
formidable and frequently annoying.
Whllo It may cause embarrassment
and delay, progressive minds every
where, north and south, oust and west,
can in this day take courage in every
emergency In the assurance of the
speedy triumph of liberal sentiment
and intelligent national opinion over
the narrowness and ignorance of sectionalism.
CLEAN ASD PVR E.
Public sentiment is worked up as
never before to demand that the meat
and food and drink Bitpplied to the
people shall be clean and pure. Re
cent disclosures following persistent
agitation has aroused the public mind
to a sudden realization of the unneces
sary filth and dirt which people have
teen compelled to absorb In their daily
meals bciauso of neglect or Indiffer
ence to the quality and methods of
production. The result, as everyone
knows, has been a general awakening
to the need of laws requiring re
enforced inspection, stricter regulation
and better sanitation of the establish
ments in which food products are pre
pared, together with heavy penalties
on any Infraction menacing the health
of either the operatives employed in
production or the consumers who pur
chase the product.
But while we are holding up our
hands in horror at the filth that has
been taken into our systems in impure
food and drink, is It not time also to
pay attention to the filth and reeking
dirt constantly poisoning the public
mind and sapping public morals in the
form of unclean tales and Impure pic
tures in the sensational yellow Jour
nals? While few people have had
their health undermined by rotten
food, thousands of youthful minds are
being systematically led astray by the
red ink and big type and pictorial
temptations of these so-called newspa
Many a man who would shudder at
the thought of taking home a can of
prepared meat admits into his houso
day after day vile sheets more danger
ous to the mental and moral health of
wife and children than would be the
stale beef or potted leavings of the
slaughter house to their physical
health. It Is true we cannot have
government Inspection' or censorship
of the press in this land where free
dom to write and speak is guaranteed
Dy me dhi or rignts. Each man or
woman responsible for a household of
nis own must act as inspector or
censor for himself and judge what
reading matter is clean and pure and
what filthy and degraded.
Surely the selection of the reading
for the home, especially of the home
newspaper, should be made with as
much care and as much precaution as
the selection of the food which Is to
go on the table.
ASSUAL HARVEST KMKRQKttCT.
The call for help In the field as har
vest is about to begin in the southweBt
bids fair this year to bo as loud as
usual and is being made earlier. The
real trouble Is not merely that the
harvest Is likely to be great, but that
the time during which It must be gath
ered Is necessarily short. In spite of
all that can be accomplished by labor-
saving machinery and the large nura
ber to whom the recurring harvest
emergencies gives employment, the line
of ripening grain moves so rapidly
northward from the Texas plains,
through Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska
and the Dakotas. across the Canadian
boundary, that an annual labor short
age Is Inevitable whenever there is a
fair crop. The certainty of the short
age, however, is a fact that enables all
who desire such employment to make
arrangements for It and the farmers
to better themselves in good time.
One circumstance which tends this
year to limit the number of harvest
workers is the universal industrial ac
tivity, causing In the cities and towns
a regular demand for alt Ulndi of
workers, including common laborers at
high wages. But it is a consoling re
flection that there are worse calamities
than such prosperity and that tho grain
will somehow be gathered, and this
year's harvest emergency, in the mutn,
like others before it, safely passed.
Wisconsin railroads are up against
a new proposition in a threatened suit
by the state for taxes which should
have been paid on freight charges
earned and then rebated. Wisconsin
used to have a gross receipt tax on the
railroads operating within its boun
daries, the state belnj rttitlcd to a
specified percentage on til tbe earnings
of the roads from freight and pas
senger traffic. It tbe railroads earned
money and then gave it away, they gave
away, along with their own propor
tion, the share which belonged to the
Ute as taxes, and the amount of such
rebates extending back over a long
series of years would, it Is said, make
the state's claim amount Into millions.
The iniquities of the rebate business
evidently reach to unknown depths
and threaten to plague the railroads
in' countless ways.
A member of the Massachusetts leg
