THE CO.XSTITCTtOSAL A .VK.VD.V JCTT.
An amendment to th. constitution of
Nebraska, providing for an electlva
state railway commission to exercise
powers within the state corresponding
more or less exactly to tboa. of the
Interstate Commerce commission over
interstate railroads ha been submitted
by the legislature and will be voted on
at the election In November.
To amend our constitution It Is nec
essary to secure an affirmative ratifi
cation by a nialorlty of all the votes
cast at an election of legislative offi
cers, and previous attempta to revlsa
the constitution In this state have
failed becaiwe neglect to vote on the
amendment on the part of anyone vot
ing for state officers is equivalent to a
vote against the amendment. This
year, by a special provision of law, all
straight party votes will be recorded
In favor of or against the ratification
of the amendment, according as the
party takes action for or against the
amendment by resolution or motion in

Means, however, are not alone responsl
ble for the success or defeat of this
amendment. If it is in conformity
with a general popular demand, as it
seems to be, the responsibility will be
shared by the democrats, populists,
prohibitionists and even socialists, who
are equally authorized in their state
ronventjong to give it the advantage of
the straight party votes by the adop
tion of proper resolutions.
All these parties are holding their
party conventions at the same time
with the republicans and the state
conventions of the democrats and of
the populists are scheduled to come off
ahead of that of the republicans.
What are the democrats and populists
going to do with reference to the
constitutional amendment? Failure to
act, thus contributing to Its defeat,
would belle the professions they have
been loudly making for railroad reg
ulation. The silence of democratic
county conventions in so many in
stances would Indicate that they are
laying no stress on this Important mat
ter, just as their state committee
showed their indifference by failing to
draw attention to it in their convention
If the democrats and populists will
get in line with' the republicans for
the elective railway commission there
will be no question as to its ratifica
tionotherwise ' the railroads may
succeed in compassing its defeat.
TilC HEW LAW AND CUT BATES.
A number of eastern papers, which
as usual In such a prospect view with
alarm the possibility that the western
grain crop may through railroad cut
ting be moved to market this season
at a very large saving to the pro
ducers, are endeavoring to draw con
solation from the hope that such rate
wars will be prevented by the opera
tion of the new interstate commerce
law. But as a matter of fact the new
law does not prevent reduction of
rates where rates are cut for all alike.
It Is Intended to prevent the gross dis
criminations which were inflicted in
the old-fashioned rate wars, and to
make sure of the equal effect of rates
whether they are advanced or re
duced. The law as it will be In force after
August 28 will forbid any "change" in
rates, fares and charges "except after
thirty days' notice to the commission
and to the public." whereas the old
law provided that "no advance shall
be made" .without ten days' notice, but
permitted reductions on only three
days' notice. But the fact that a cut
rate 'once in effect could not be re
stored for at least thirty days by no
means warrants the conclusion that
competing and angry railroad compa
nies would cease to make war. but
merely defines one of the conditions
under which war might be aa effect
ively waged aa heretofore.
The competitive motive with refer
ence to grain freight between the gulf
port and the Atlantic port lines will in
no wise be abolished by the new law's
change of the details of notice regard
ing rates.' It might conceivably be en
hanced under certain circumstances.
But the amended requirements cer
talnly will equalize the benefits of
such competition to whatever extent
it may be carried.
COMPARATIVE BOXD VALVES.
The successful sale of $30,000,000
Panama 2 per cent bonds at about 104,
with an over-subscription of ten times
that amount at nearly as high a pre
mium, contrasts strongly even with
many bond offerings which have justly
been regarded as gilt edged. While
some New York municipal bonds have
been sold within two years on a basis
which is a little more than 3 per cent
par, no such prices have lately been
or are now possible. Large issues of
Philadelphia municipal bonds not long
ago were marketed on a 8 H per cent
basis, but it Is acknowledged that no
such favorable terms can b secured
for an Issue that is soon to be placed.
The fact is well established that there

But it ia to ba remembered that
the national bonds, aside from the su

eral material points. By the terms
of the sale one-third of the proceeds
of the Panama bonda could be re

Important advantage at this season of
the year and under existing financial
conditions. More important still, of
course. Is this privilege potential dur
ing their life, that makes them avail
able as security for national bank cir
culation, especially under th law that
authorizes circulation np to the par
value of the deposited bonds. Instead
of only 90 per cent of It, as formerly.
The steadily increasing demand for
national bank notes and tha limited
supply of national bonds not already
deposited as security for them is un
doubtedly the chief cause of the con
trast In the market for national bonds
and prime state and municipal bonds
of scarcely less solidity. But even
allowing for that, the fact remains
that the intrinsic credit of no nation
or community stands as high aa that
of the United States.
AS lMrOItTAST TREASCBT ORDER.
A fact of vast Importance, which
hitherto has singularly escaped the
public attention to which it is entitled,
Is only Just now being emphasized,
namely, that Secretary Shaw has or
dered that silver shall be redeemed
In gold upon presentation at the treas
ury. It Is, of course, well known that
the law as It stood prior to the act of
March 14, 1900, establishing the gold
standard did not require or authorize
the treasury to exchange directly gold
for silver, a situation of which the
sllverltes sought to make much In
their agitation, but it Is not so well
known that that act itself did not pro
vide In express terms for redemption
in gold of silver currency.
It had been declared by previous
acts in general terms to be the policy
of the government to maintain all
forms of currency at parity, but the
act of March 14. 1900. went further
and established the gold standard,
pledging that all forms of money
should be maintained thereon and cre
ating an immense gold fund for re
demption of treasury notes, but leav
ing the maintenance of parity of other
forms of money to the secretary of
the treasury. Under his order, there
fore, It Is possible for the first time
for the holder of silver currency of
whatever form, certificates or coin, in
large or small sums, to exchange It
at his option for gold at the treasury.
The total volume of silver currency,
coin and certificates, is now about
(660,000,000, but there is no danger
that even so enormous a volume can
be used to raid the treasury for gold
so long as a Bound money administra
tion ia at the helm. Since exchange
ability Is the condition of parity, peril
could come only from an unsound
money administration that would re
scind the rule of treasury redemption
of silver In gold In a time of financial
stress. Another important safeguard
is the system of provisions under
which the Bllver certificates are for
the most part issued in small denom
inations, so that the demand for them
in circulation would make It difficult
to accumulate them In formidable
amounts for raiding purposes.
But the situation should emphasize
the vital point, that, notwithstanding
the many salutary provisions of the
gold standard act, the true and funda
mental assurance of monetary stability
rests, after all, upon the fidelity to
sound money principles of those who
administer the government.
One of the reasons advanced for the
protest filed by the county assessor of
Lancaster county against the mercan
tile assessments of Douglas county la
that the assessments of jobbing houses
In the two places do not correspond
proportionately with the volume of
sales. But the law does not fix the
volume of sales aa the basis of taxa
tion. Quite the contrary, the consti
tution of Nebraska declares explicitly
that taxes shall be levied on every per
son or corporation in proportion to
the value of hia or her property. A
merchant might have a large stock of
goods, yet never make a sale for the
whole year and atlll be taxable upon
Its fair' value, while another merchant
making sales mounting into the thou
sands, but selling from sample only,
would pay on but a trifling valuation
It is the essence of a general property
tax such as we have in Nebraska that
people who derive their Incomes
chiefly from services in the professions
or otherwise are taxed little or noth
ing compared with those who depend
on their property for returns. Like
wise the merchant who turns his stock
rapidly gets an advantage in the mat
ter of taxes over his competitor who
turns his stock less often.
No one seems to be bothering about
what the democrats will put Into their
state platform. The platform for the
democratic state convention will be
built after the same fashion aa the
platform put out by the democrats in
the recent municipal campaign in
Omaha and the nominees will likewise
swallow it with their eyes shut.

Moses Clnclnnatus Wetmore, the great Bt.
Iuls octopodicide, strolled among the
groves of Blarney and kissed the suaslve

not to add seduction to those peerless Hps,
but to bestow upon the Blarney stone a
new life and charm, to rekindle Its magic
power, to make It sixteen times more
wonder working and lreslstlble. At the
moment of contact the streets of Cork
ran sixteen Inches deep with honey and
sixteen old limestone nouses turnea 10
sugar and In ecstasy caved In; Blarney
castle was all ablaze with Jack o' lanterns;
Clonakllty bay and Bantry bay ran visibly
with molasses, and sixteen mermaids with
stiver combs appeared upon the pleasant
waters of the River Lee. All the milk In
Ireland turned to cream. According to re

turned green. What struck observers as
strangest, however, was tha Innumerable
swarms of bees that escorted the Greatest
Conservative Force back to Cork.
The Blarney stone Is now good for cen
turies. Millions of the producing and
downtrodden "classes" will visit It because
it has kissed the Hps that wouldn't kiss
the cross of gold.
Mr. Bryan bestows more taffy than he

As editor of the New Era the writer

to meet the scheming manipulations
of party bosses In caucuses and

deep and quiet ranks of the voters whose
approval or disapproval will ba felt at
The seeming strength of his rivals rests j
upon the flimsy foundation of an "ele
venth hour" convention and the frensied
seal of railroad control and restraint within
the state of 'Nebraska. Whatever argu
ment or force there may be In the above
It only emphasises the prior and superior
claims and merits of Mr. Rosewater, be
cause for thirty long years he has been
the embodiment of the policy of state con
trol and regulation of railroads. As the
Tllden Cltlsen (rep ) well says: "He
(Rosewater) realized a generation ago the
drift of coporate control In politics, and
from that time has steadfastly argued In
his psper against monopolistic tendencies."
Rosewater's strength and pre-eminent
fitness for the position of Vnlted States
senator does not rest solely upon ONE
Issue, and th.it a state Issue. His merits
rest upon an undisputed and conceded abil
ity and capacity as well as varied equip
ments for the work of a fnlted States sena
tor, lie might not shine as flowery and pol
ished orator, to please and tickle the
galleries, hut when It comes to the real
practical work of a legislator, on the
floor of the senate and In the committee
rooms through him the Influence of the
commonwealth of Nebraska would weigh
As additional qualifications for the re
sponsible position of fnlted States senator
It should be remembered that he has hatl
thirty years experience In the consideration
of national issues and his wide acquain
tance with the lending statesmen of the
nation. He has the confidence and ear of
President Roosevelt, second to none, and
Is In full accord with him upon all political
measures of reform for which the president
stands. Rosewater Is not a one Idea man,
he Is broad minded having both depth and
breadth of Intellect.
Rosewater stands for Interstate railroad
control and legislation and. like President
Roosevelt, rejoices In the legislation on
that line accomplished by the last session
of congress, but holds, with the president,
that further legislation Is required to
wholly cure the evils complained of. He
has long been an advocate of postal sav
ings banks and government ownership of
telegraphs. He Is a strong advocate of
an Income tax, that will tax Rockefeller
and his Ilk while they live.
We respect and admire Mr. Rosewater
for the enemies he has made; the cor
porations and trusts, smarting under thirty
years of lnshlng received at his hands, and
baffled In every attempt made to bridle
him to their interests, will leave no stono
unturned to defeat him for the nomination,
and their strongest weapon to use against
him Is the report assiduously circulated,
that they are now for him.
When It became necessary to defeat re
publican nominees for office who were
unworthy or Incapable, lie has had the
courage to perform this disagreeable work
and subsequeit events have shown that he
was Invariably correct.
Right here, lest we forget It, we desire
to declare and emphaslie a fact that can
not be gainsaid and that Is; Had the
leaders of the republican party In the
past heeded Rosewater's timely warnings
and followed his political advice along
anti-monopoly lines, and honesty ond
economy In the management of the state
government there never would have been
a populist party In Nebraska.

Not only wl the fall elections of 1906
be significant but the elections of 1907 may

choose an assembly and two Judges of the
Court of Appeals. Massachusetts. Rhode
Island, New Jersey, Maryland, Mississip
pi and Kentucky will elect governors. Ne
braska, Mr. Bryan's own state, will choose
a Justice of the supreme court and two
regents of the State University.
How absured for the democrats ot the
country to try to dispose of the nomination
for president two year In advance of the
convention! Who knows what a year or
two may bring forth? The republicans
have not undertaken to mortgage their 1908
nomination. Even in 1902 there was nothing
approaching a unanimous sentiment In the
republican party favorable to Mr. Roose
velt's nomination. The republicans walled.

Speak gently to the office boy,
Do not rebuke his pride.
E'en though It sometimes seems bla Joy
Your failings to deride.
E'en though he looks with quiet acorn
On your old-fashioned ways,
And pities you as one not born
To til these modern days.
He tries to like you more or less.
Hla pity It awakes
To sec how, in your business.
You make such sad mistakes,
persuasion vainly you employ.
And useless Is your frown;
Speak gently to the office boy
Or he will call you down.
