It Is said that everything la fair In
war, In love and in politics but, after
all, the rules of modern warfare forbid
the use of copper bullets and poisoned
missiles, and the unwritten law of
politics Interdicts false accusations and
A few days ago the following
declaration was made by Edward
Roaewater over his own signature In
a letter to republicans of York county:
"It is absolutely untrue that I have
either before my departure tor Europe
or since my return held any communi
cation directly or Indirectly with any
railroad officials or with anybody pre
tending to speak for them concerning
my candidacy for United States sena
tor. My attitude toward the railway
and all other public carriers Is well
known and has undergone no change."
In the face of this declaration, the
Journalistic outlaws of Lincoln and
Omaha persist In fabricating fakes
that have not the remotest shadow of
foundation. The latest and most flag
rant of these brazen falsehoods Is the
contemptible Insinuation that a poli
tical alliance has been formed between
the Union Pacific and Edward Rose
water through the Interposition of
Jacob H. Schlff of the banking firm of
Kuhn, Loeb & Company, a firm here
tofore largely Interested in Union Pa
cific stocks. All this is pure Invention.
Mr. Rosewater has had no communica
tion with Mr. Schlff since last Septem
ber when Mr. Schlff at his solicita
tion contributed $500 toward the Wise
Memorial hospital of Omaha. At that
time the senatorshlp was not even
dreamed of. To distort an effort on
behalf of a benevolent institution into
political deal transcends all profes
The trouble with these political
pirates is that they reverse themselves
on th slightest provocation. For
example, this same World-Herald only
a few months ago quoted approvingly
the statement by Edgar Howard to the
effect that Edward Rosewater is "a
true anti-monopolist." who would be
the choice for senator "if the choice
were left to the people." Judge How
ard concluded: "He Is the preferred
candidate of the rank and file. But
the bosses want somebody else, and
since the choice is to be left to the
state convention or the lesislature in
stead of to the people somebody else
will be chosen." To this the World
Herald added for itself. "We believe
this an approximately correct state
ment of the case. Because the people
themselves are not to be permitted to
speak, their will Is not to prevail.
Convention and legislative manipula
tion and Jugglery will foist uppn the
party a candidate the rank and file do
not want." Now that there Is a fair
prospect of the people getting the can
didate they want In spite of corporate
opposition, the World-Herald- and Ita
republican allies at Lincoln show their
true colors by despicable assaults and
stories coined out of wholo rloth. .
The Lincoln Journal and its evening
appendage were Just as complimentary
In their comments before Mr. Rose
water captured the Douglas delegation,
but since he has some prospect of
getting support from Lancaster and
other counties within Its Immediate
territory, It is In convulsions over its
pretended discovery that Mr. Rosewater
is the sworn and subservient ally of the
Burlington and has mortgaged himself
body and soul to that corporation a
fake with no better foundation than
the invention about the Union Pacific
What fake these twin exponents of
mendacity will spring next is not to
be forecasted, but there will ba no
limits on the Inventive genius dis
is uuxicipal ownership socialism
It is significant that municipal
ownership should be the chief topic
discussed In the meeting of the Illinois
State Bar association and that the
brunt of denunciation should fall on
the principle underlying It. The tenor
of the lawyers' speeches was expressed
by one of the loading members, who
declared that "the adoption of the
principle of municipal ownership and
operation would be a long stride to
ward socialism and communism."
The abuses and corruptions under
privately owned public service corpora-
tlons were notably absent from the dis
cussions. Yet the lawyers could have '
done a better service to the public by
exposing their full Inside knowledge
of that phase of the subject than by
vehement and Indiscriminate denuncia
tion of the chief remedial method to
wards which public Judgment Is stead
ily and cautiously advancing. The
lawyers' expressions by their heat and
partisan spirit are distinctly obstruc
tionist rather than deliberative. It is
notorious that attorneys are frequently
the essential Instrumentality by which
public utilities are perverted to cor
poration ends at the expense of the
municipality to which they of right
belong, and in whose Interest they
should be equitably administered. The
devices by which such prostitution Is
consummated, involving a maze of
legal fictions and technicalities and
manipulation of state and city legisla
tures, are the particular business of
too -many lawyers conspicuous In the
profession for ability, and for reward
they receive large fees or salaries from
those corporations. It Is not un
natural, therefore, that lawyers should
as a class dislike, a proposed reform
In which their occupation would bo
lost or their profits greatly diminished,
or that it should manifest Itself in
bar association meetings.
"Socialism" Is unquestionably an
unpopular term and It la lawyer strat
egy to seek to attach It to the effort
to reform abuse la public service cor
porations. The plain fact, however, is
that bard ' headed, practical men.
who- r not socialists, but autl-coclal
ists, favor municipal ownership of pub
lic utilities. In this country there has
been notable success In such owner
ship In many fields. The proof of the
pudding is In the eating and in the
contrast with the abuses In the private
corporation system that are so gen
erally affecting public opinion. The
seriousness of the movement arises
from the very fact that sober business
men, and not mere socialistic theorists,
are convinced of its advantages.
There is obviously no more socialism
in municipal ownership of service of
water, light, heat, transit, etc., if the
public finds its interest protected
thereby, than there Is In public owner
ship of the postal service or of many
other services which no one would
denounce as socialism. Resort to
municipal ownership as a. remedy for
definite evils by no means implies the
abrogation of the principle of private
The significant fact remains that as
experience accumulates public senti
ment is settling upon the wisdom and
necessity of withdrawing from the
possession and the reach of corporation
monopoly many of the public services
which have customarily been sublet to
them. Nothing can stop this tendency
but reform of the abuses by the cor
porations themselves, to which they
rotten have shown themselves to be
as much opposed aa to municipal own
ership, and for the same reason.
VtNDICA TlOy OF DREYFUS
The closing day of the session of
the national legislature of France will
be historic for the act of Justice, long
delayed, by which the stain of dis
honor so infamously put upon the
name of Captain Alfred Dreyfus is
formally wiped out, and such repara
tion as at this late date is possible is
officially made to an Innocent and
terribly wronged man. It is eminently
fit that the same law by which the
French republic acknowledges the im
measurable crime against Captain
Dreyfus, restoring him to the rank in
the army from which he was eleven
years ago degraded on a false charge
of treason, with the promotion to which
in regular course he would have been
entitled and with enrollment on the
list for early nomination to the Legion
of Honor, should also include the like
honorable 'restoration of Colonel Plc
quart, who was a victim to the same
despicable conspiracy, because he as
In duty bound strove manfully to make
the truth appear and to expose the
forgeries and perjuries by which the
outrage was perpetrated. Not less ap
propriate 18 It that at the same time the
French government by law to transfer
Emil Zola's body to tho Pantheon, the
municipality of Paris by resolution to
name a principal street for him and
various other representative bodies by
similar acts, should render homage to
the creat French author who, after
Dreyfus had suffered the deepest Indig
nity that could be imposed on a soldier
and had been consigned to a living
death at Devil's island, and after
Plcquart, attempting to undo the
wrong, had himself been expelled from
the army In disgrace, made tho n
orable appeal to the conscience of
France for Justice, that ultimately tri
umphed, though its immediate answer
was persecution, bankruptcy and exile.
The story of the Dreyfus case is one
of the most extraordinary In modern
annals, and is pregnant with admoni
tion far beyond the limits of France.
For the suffering wrongfully inflicted
on these innocent men. France has
Itself in the last ten years suffered
grievously and been brought to the
verge of revolution and forelsrn war,
to say nothing of the odium incurred
in the eyes of right-thinking mankind-
The original sin against Drey
fus, which the powerful perpetrators
hoped to hide, became a stimulus to
the worst prejudices and passions that
are still widespread In a great popula
tion, In snlte of the boasted progress
and liberality of the age.
Least of nil can a republic tolerate
either an Irresponsible military estab
lishment on the one hand or a mad,
brutal mob spirit on the other. A
union of the worst of both, determined
by mere circumstance in the Dreyfus
case, culminated In the deep disgrace
and danger of France. To its credit
It la to be said that the intelligent and
Just sentiment of the people at length
averted lteelf. and the desperate and
debauched military spirit was curbed
and brought Into subordination to
law and reason. It remained formally
to acknowledge the wrong to the Inno
cent victim, as the government has
now done unreservedly and in the most
conspicuous manner. The unutterable
Injustice to Dreyfus cannot indeed be
undone, but his suffering and the hu
miliation of his country may stand
everywhere A a warning for the
WITHIlfCOXSTITU TIOSAL LIMITS
No more pertinent suggestion has
been recently made than that which Is
contained in Secretary Taft's reply to
the cbarre that important legislation
of the last session of congress, includ
ing especially the rate control, meat
Inspection and pure food laws, exceeds
constitutional warrant, in these words:
"It is not true that the expansion of
power Is unconstitutional, but it is
only true that the national government
has taken upon Itself the exercise of
grerter powers, heretofore unused, but
all-within the constitutional grant, in
order to curb certain evils which were
so widely extended across state lines
aa to make it impossible for the state
to suppress them." It cannot be too
strongly emphasized that the action of
congress and the president In this use
of authority has not been inspired by
disregard for the constitution, but by
regard for the very objects for which
It was framed to provide. The use of
the powers granted by the constitution
to the national government hss neces
sarily been determined from the first,
not by their extent, but by need from
time to time within the limit of the
In the history of the government
there has been no great abuse and
wrong which was beyond roach of
state control, and no formidable antl
natlonal interest, on behalf of which
the same plea of lack of constitutional
power for national remedy has not
been made. The narrow states rights
heresy would be a shield for every
great peculiar evil that menaces the
present generation. If the restrictive
theory of the national constitution
which is thus Invoked to prevent rem
edy of abuses against which state
power has been demonstrated to be
futile could be established, it would
only show that the framers of the
supreme law had failed utterly to'pro
vldo for the vital needs of a growing
TUB KEW YORK BASK SITUATION.
The monetary situation Is about to
recur which - the eastern financial
doctors have In mind when they urgti
a more "elastic currency." It is a
moral certainty that the New York
banks will be called upon within a few
weeks to send at least from $25,
000,000 to $30,000,000 of currency to
the west. This fact, however, le not
more certainly known now than It has
been all the time, for the demand on
the New York banks is one that comos
every year for western hafvest use,
although relatively to the total amount
required in moving the crops tbe de
mand is of course decreasing. But the
last weekly statement shows that the
New York banks have a surplus of 'cm
than $6,000,000 available to meet the
Ordinarily there are two ways. In
such a case, to provide the currency
either to call in loans or to induce
the Secretary of the Treasury to de
posit surplus treasury funds. As the
commercial customers require protec
tion, the banks must call on the pro
moters and stock speculators, and it is
the latter from whom the periodical
clamor ' for treasury , relief mainly
comes and is to be expected shortly.
But the government the last few years
has shown a disposition not to regard
its surplus as a relief fund for the
particular benefit of New York stock
jobbers and speculators, and to dis
tribute It more equitably in the banks
of different sections of the country.
Precisely here Is the explanation for
the recent increased pressure In the
east for an expansive asset bank note
currency, although of course the pur
pose is that it may be available for
other emergencies to which eastern
bankers are peculiarly liable.
But the rest of the country cannot
see why the New York banks, fore
knowing approximately the amount
and time of western call for currency,
should not In the first instance adjust
speculators' loans to that fact, or why,
if they do not, the consequences should
concern the country, at least bo far as
public policy Is concerned.
William Jennings Bryan has broad
ened out by his travels around the
world, but in some respects he Is still
like the Platte river, only a few Inches
deep. He declares from beyond the
sea that his quantitative theory of
money and the soundness of the prin
ciple of free silver has been demon
strated by the prosperity of the last
ten years, whfch is due to the super
abundance of gold. We have doubled
the circulation of our money in the
last ten years and that, according to
Bryan, proves that American prosper
ity is due to the increased gold output
and not to the surplus of corn, wheat
and cotton. Suppose there had been
drouths In the wheat and corn belts,
and the weevil had gotten in his work
In the cotton belt, and as a sequence
the construction of steam Tailroads,
trolley lines and skyscrapers that have
created an extraordinary demand for
pig Iron and steel products had been
curtailed, what effect would the In
creased output of the gold mines have
had on the farmers, cotton planters
and mine and mill workers?
Twelve years ago H. Clay Evans was
elected governor of Tennessee by

that the income on $20,000 was devised for

worthy of the shelter of kennel and stable,
