Tbe democratic World-Herald in
slits that the proposition to avoid nom

the democratlo state convention, but
admits, In an aside, that no one ex
pects it to be accepted. Apparently
all that la now wanted by its foster
sponsors is to be let down easy.
One of the newly elected democratic

Mar 10 TH PARTT PtATTORM.
A disposition la manifested In cer
tain quarters to criticise the actios of
the executive committee of the repub
lican state committee In selecting tn
advance of the convention a provis
ional resolutions committee to draft
the platform. This action Is de
nounced as "a usurpation of power"
and "in violation of all Nebraska prece
dents," and part of "a scheme to draft
specious resolutions calculated to be
fuddle the honest delegates In the con
vention." There is no question that the selec
tion of a resolutions committee in ad
vance of the organization of the con
vention Is "in violation of all Ne
braska precedents," although no more
so than was the inclusion in the call
two years ago of the nomination of a
candidate for United States senator.
The only question is whether the Inno
vation Is a good one or a bad one. The
action of tbe executive committee Is
In pursuance of a mandatory resolu
tion unanimously adopted by the full
state committee, and the resolution,
moreover, was offered by C. F. Reavis,
so that, if it Is part of "a scheme," It
Is one fathered by the so-called re
form element of the party. The power
of the committee is restricted to the
"recommendation" of its selection to
the convention and It will remain with
the convention to accept or reject the
provisional resolutions committee and
to vote Its platform up or down as it
The idea of having the party plat
form carefully prepared without un
due haste In ample time to be pre
sented to the convention in finished
form Instead of being slapped together
under high pressure at the eleventh
hour will commend itself to most peo
ple and In fact is in line with repub
lican precedent in a number of states.
With the personnel of this committee
known and advertised, every repub
lican with a suggestion for a platform
plank should feel free to formulate
and submit it to the chairman or mem
bor for his district, and it should be
Incumbent upon the committee like
wise to take Into consideration all the
resolutions touching upon national
and state issues that are now being
passed from time to time in the differ
ent county conventions.
The platform to be adopted by the
coming republican state convention
should be truly expressive of the pre
vailing sentiment on public questions
of the rank and file of the party
throughout the state In plain and un
mistakable language and the candi
date nominated on It made to under
stand that they are pledged by it and
will be expected to carry out its prom
ises. The pre-conventlon appoint
ment of the resolution committee can
bring about this desired result, and if
it does not it will devolve on the con
ventlon to repudiate it and provide for
the framing of a platform that does
conform to the popular demand.
INCREASE Or RAILROAD EARKIXQS.
The remarkable average Increase of
13.24 per cent in railroad gross earn
lngs for June in comparison with those
of the same month of last year signally
reflects the prosperous state of bust
ness, railroad earnings being accepted
as one of the most reliable Indices of
trade conditions. For the June traffic
figures, although covering official re
ports of a mileage of 92,655, on which
the accepted trade estimates are made,
are carefully selected to represent
every section of the country and all
the great basic industries. The story
of increasing freight- volume Is the
same, whether as regards the trans
continental lines or those which par
ticularly serve the grain, the lumber,
the cotton or other regions productive
of distinctive commodities, except only
the exclusively coal districts, which, on
account of recent labor troubles, have
not quite reached normal conditions.
The most suggestive fact, however,
is the strong probability that the net
earnings will show a relatively much
higher increase than the gross, al
though the precise rate cannot as yet
be stated. But the important point is
already entering into actual business
and financial calculations, that the
abolition of rebates through enforce
ment of tbe law is even now operating
as a strong factor in swelling the
profits of the roads. Not -only is the
tonnage increasing so that on sub
stantially the same tariff rates as here
tofore the gross earnings correspond
Ingly Increase, but also, since more
nearly the full amount of charges paid
in is retained by the roads, the ne
earnings tend to be even greater.
QRAIX FROM THE DRY REOIOH.
The proportion to the whole crop of
thf grain produced this year on west
em land beyond what formerly was
regarded as hopelessly outside the
rain belt, of course, cannot yet be pre
clsely stated, but it is known to be
very great, and la commanding atten
tion not only in the grain trade, but
also among farmers throughout the
older states. The wheat and other
small grains grown far beyond the
ninety-eighth meridian, not a little of
It on land that was abandoned for
farming ten or fifteen years ago, turn
out to be the finest quality of thi
year's yield. And this crop, following
as It does abundant crops for a series
of years, goes Xar to change tbe fx-bllc
Judgment, once believed to bt) final
as to the character of that region.
The most remarkable fact is that the
revolution cannot be attributed to In
crease of rainfall alone, as might
naturally be Inferred. Tbe reports
show that In considerable districts
particularly in the southwest, moisture
was materially below the average dur
ing the growing and ripening period
and yet the yield both as to quantlt
and as to quality is In nowise inferior
to that in other parts of the subhumld
belt where there was more rain. The
true reason appears to be that the
farmer bare learned better how to
cultivate the land, adopting, suitable
seed and plants and conserving the
moisture. It has been Increasingly
urged by specialists, and It Is now
known positively, that very great bene
fit can be realised by such adaptation
of methods to climatic conditions.
These developments cannot fail to
have a powerful Influence upon immi
gration from the region of great rain
fall, where land prices ae now so
high as to be beyond the poor man's
reach and where population Is dense.
While it may be conceded that rainfall
has been unusual for several years, the
fact remains that millions of acres be
yond the line formerly fixed for grain
growing are now being prosperously
cultivated, without resort to Irrigation
and with at least the strong probability
that such cultivation In one degree or
another will be permanent.
THE TRUE CAMPAIOS ISSUE.
With the committees of the two
great parties organizing for the active
campaign, the Issue becomes plainer
every day and Is narrowed practically
to the one question, whether the coun
try will grant the president's request
for a republican majority in congress
to co-operate with him in more com
pletely carrying out bis policies.
There cannot be a shadow of doubt
that if President Roosevelt himself
were a candidate, and a verdict were
to be returned in the form of a vote
on bis election, that he would sweep
the country as he did two years ago,
r that popular approval would be
even stronger than it was then. It
will not be easy toflnd a congressional
district in which the opposition candi
date will have the hardihood to seek
election as an expression of popular
disapproval of the president or popular
demand for reversal of his program.
Certainly no such opposition tactics
will be ventured in any close or de
Yet this in general is the actual issue
as truly as if Theodore Roosevelt s
name were at the head of the repub
lican ticket this year or was the sole
name on the republican ticket to be
voted for or against. If the people are
really for Roosevelt and approve his
administration and want his policy on
vital issues supported and continued
the remaining two years of his term,
the only possible way to do it effec
tively Is to send to the national honse
and senate republicans who are
pledged and by their characters and
records bound to hold up his hands
It cannot be done, as President Roose
velt himself gives notable evidence of
realizing, by electing a democratic ma-
ority in the house, which, because of
the approach of the presidential elec
tion, must be under special temptation
to manufacture party capital.
The very situation, from the stand
point of party necessity as well as
public policy, makes it the duty of
republicans to back up the president
and force the issue by solectlng for
members of the house and senate only
those who have shown by their records
that they can be relied upon and whose
very names will be to the people suffi
cient guaranty of sincerity.
The railroad tax agents have en
tered objection before tbe State Board
of Equalization to tbe real estate as
sessment because the real estate is as
sessed only once every four years
while the assessment of railroad prop
erty is made each year. But If the
railroad assessment Is substantially
the same as it was the year the real
estate was assessed, notwithstanding
the notorious increase of earnings and
stock values, it would behoove the tax
bureaucrats to go away back and Bit
down and maintain a dense silence.
If no one can build another gas tank
in Omaha without the consent of the
owners of every foot of property
within 1,000 feet, and the present gas
company sees to it that no one else
gets such consent, what becomes of
the promise in the democratic city
platform to force a reduction in the
price of gas by granting a second fran
chlse to a competing company? It
looks very much as if that gas tank
mandamus were one of those "heads
I win and tails you lose" cases, so far
as the gas company Is concerned.
Not content to let the State Board
of Health alone make a record, the
State Board of Veterinarians has set
a new precedent by refusing a license

prove his ability. When the state sue
ceeds in protecting four-footed animals
from veterinary quacks there may be
hope for the same protecting arm to
be thrown around those who walk on
It la time for the Real Estate ex
change to make another demonstration
against excessive tax rates by county
city and school district. Of what use
is It to achieve a measure of reform
in assessment of property if the tax
rate is not also to be restricted in the
interest of economy?
Advices from Russia telling of

Where the Consumer Gets On.
Coincident with Intelligence of the set
tlement of the Ohio coal miners' strike
comes the intimation that the price of coal
will be fractionally advanced "because of
the short supply on hand." In other
words, the miners and operators having
adjusted their differences, now purpose to
make the consumer foot the bills. This
Is a consummation so common that it or
dinarily excites little comment, but In
the present aggressive state of the public
temper It may lead to legislative action
that will not be entirely satisfactory either
to the miners or the, operators. The oper
ation of "gouging" the public Is not so
safe as It once was.
Strange Collection of Bronse Effigies
on Capitol Doors.
The covering of the great brons doors
at the main entrance of Pennsylvania's new
state capltol have once more been removed
and the people are again able to feast their
eyea on the featurea of the great states
men that adorn them. Among the heads
re those of Governor Pennypacker, Sen
ator Quay, Senator Penrose, Senator W. A.
Clark and Israel Durham. The men who
arranged the scheme of decoration evidently
forgot that such men as William Penn,
Benjamin Franklin, Alexander James Dal
las, Albert Gallatin, Robert Morris, Andrew
Gregg Curtln and Benjamin Rush ever had
anything to do with Pennsylvania.
These doors will preach a strange sermon
to the youth of the great state of Pennsyl
vania. Quay, as everyone knows, robbed
the state treasury more than once, and dur
ing his life he represented all that was cor
rupt and rotten In politics. Penrose Is now
engaged In a desperate fight to maintain
the supremacy of ring rule In state politics.
Pennypacker Is chiefly famous for his ad
miration of Quay, whose kinsman he was.
Clark Is a millionaire senator from a west
ern state who happened to be born In Penn-,
sylvanla. While Durham was the big man
In the gas ring In Philadelphia that plun
dered the city of millions of dollars. Thus
we are to understand that there are peo
ple In Pennsylvania who think It proper
to erect monuments to corruption, crime,
greed and mere wealth. Great public serv
ice counts for nothing. The men that re
flected glory on the commonwealth are
passed by In contempt. All that Is needed
to complete the picture is that the statue
of Quay shall be placed In the grounds of
the capitol on the site that has been pre
pared for It.

That people of moderate resources are

In the effort to keep up with their richer

The Massachusetts Bureau of Labor Statis

route. In so doing it suggests that to the
extensive employment of credit and the In
stallment system moral as well as economic
unwisdom may attach.
The bureau has gathered figures to show
the unollectlble indebtedness of the people
of the state. They are very large figures.

Queernesa that Is the prevailing charac
teristic of the sightseers which tha pres
ence of the president brings to Oyster
Bay. Overrun with odd specimens of hu
manity tbe town certainly is during the
thr?e months of summer, says the Oyster
Bay correspondent of tbe New Tork Even
ing Sun. The majfrlty of those who corns
simply dralre to cast their eyes upon the
Queen Anne cottage In which the president
lives and. if possible, obtain a fleeting
glimpse of the chief magistrate himself,
but there are others whom nothing short
of a personal Interview with Mr. Roosevelt
will Mtlsfy, and their disappointment when
they discover that the president's time is
too valuable to permit of his listening to
their plans for providing rapid transit to
the millennium or to their long tales of
petty grievances Is at once ludicrous and
pitiful. They come srmed with visiting
cards and self-importance. They depart
leaving behind them both their visiting
cards and self-importance In tha custody
of Secretary Loeb.
The women are, of course, the most per
sistent. Only the other day one arrived
at the railroad station armed with a care
fully prepared treatise on the Immorality
of New Tork society which she desired
to bring to the president's attention. Her
researches, she said, had been Inspired by
the Thaw case.
The secret service men last week were
called upon to Investigate the fell designs
of an ancient, gray-haired dame, whose
behavior at the railroad station was so
violent and her utterances so denunciatory
that the station agent rushed to the tele
phone end got hold of the executive offices
and Informed the secret service men who
are always kept on reserve there that
there was a very suspicious person In
town. Two sleuths traced the suspect
to the boarding house at which she had
elected to stop. There they found that
admittance had been denied her. -In high
dudgeon she had returned to the railroad
station, where she was tramping up and
down the platform, waiting for the next
train back to New Tork. When it pulled
In from the yards she climbed majestically
aboard. Then she turned and faced scorn
fully the Jeering crowd.
"It's hack to Thirty-fourth street for
mine!" she cried. "I wouldn't live In a
boarding house anyway!"
The resourcefulness of some of the
women who come here Is really worthy of
admiration. W'hilo visitors are allowed to
drive In the president's grounds " and
around his house, provided they do not
loiter on the way, no one, unless a special
dispensation Is first obtained from Becre-,
tary Loeb, Is permitted to take a photo
graph. Naturally to snap a photograph,
therefore. Is what every feminine sightseer
most desires. Shortly" after the president's
arrival from Wcshington two young girls
were driven up to Sagamore Hill by one of
the hackmen who are always on hand te
convey strangers to Oyster Bay's one great
point of Interest. When the president's
house came In sight one of the two girls
produced a pocket camera and prepared to
take a picture
"Tou can't do that, ma'am!" warned the
hackman In alarm, with a furtive glance In
the direction of the two secret service men
who were on duty on the lawn.
The only answer he got was the click of
the shutter. At the same time one of the
secret service men started toward them on
"That means goodby to your camera,"
the Jehu grimly predicted, discreetly rein
ing in his spavined steed.
Quick as a wink the girl unhooked the
front of the lace waist she wore and slipped
the earner behind Its folds,, She had barely
sltpped'the hooks In place again when the
panting sentinel hove up alongside the di
lapidated "carryall" and came to a stand
still. "I'll have to trouble you for that cam
era." he began politely.
"What?" Inquired the damsel sweetly.
"I'll have to trouble you for that cam
era." he repeated, eyeing the spot where
he had seen It disappear.
"If you want It you'll have to come and
get It." the maiden coolly retorted without
the quiver of an eyelash.
The secret service man put one foot on
the carryall's step. Then he hesitated. He
had been In difficulties before. More than
once bis superiors had hnd cause to com
mend his cleverness and courage. But
there are some things to which even the
courage of a secret service man Is not
equal. He withdrew the foot he had ad
vanced, mid he became suddenly absorbed
In the flight of a crow overhead. He was
quite sure the girl was laughing, but he
didn't dare to look and see.
"Drive on!" he said, and fled.

I do not go to fish for fish;
I go to catch tha day
When up the dawn he comes to swish
The river mists away.
I do not go because I know '
The Ash are sure to bite
I go to catch the songs that flow,
The dreams that greet my sight.
I do hot go to fish for fish,
I go to fish for news; . .

To visit Mrs. Muse.
I often find her daughters nine
Upon the beach at play.
And then the pleasure ali Is mine
To hear the things they say.
I do not go to fish for fish,
I go to be like one
Who Joys to sit a while and smile
Juat lonely with the sun;
Just with the chatter of the breeze
Upon the rippling tide,
Just with the friendship of the trees
And of the birds beside,
I do not go to fish for fish,
I have no time for that;
I go to stray away a day
Beneath my wlde-brlmmed hat;
I go to drift, or slow, or swift,
However wills my boat,
Where sometimes comes to cleanse and 111
The dust that's in my throat.
I do not go to fish for fish;
I hardly care at all
If any fish come at my wish.
Good luck or ill befall;
I go to t'.sh with mem'ry bait
Upon the singing stream.
And generally it la my fate
Instead of fish, to dream.
To dream and drift and swing and float.
To loaf the lonely hours
Along the shore where glides my boat.
Where bloom the fragrant flowers:
To lunch and smoke and dream again
Tha day's long golden span;
To paddle home at night and foel
Just like another man I
