SECRETARY R'tOfJ MISSION.
It anything were needed to empha-
sixe the success of Seeiretarr Root's
mission to South America' It would be
abundantly supplied by the signs of
jralousr and apprehension manifested
among our European competitors, of I
which, perhaps, one of the moat no-
table so far Is the sensational warning
In a leading Parisian paper that the
harmony of the American republics Is
now secure and the prestige of the
Unlted States established beyond all
questlon. The secretary's design, It Is
now apparent, has been conceived and
executed with consummate skill, one
great object being to remove any sus
picion of a disposition on our part
towards territorial aggression or un-
due Influence of any kind for selfish
ends. The secretary's extended tour
through the chief South American
countries is by Itself a compliment and
evidence of good will, the announce-
roent of which produced a favorable
Impression. This has now been deep-
ened by the ability ana tact wun wnicn
he has brought home to those peoples,
not merely the pacific purpose 01 tne
United States toward them, but also
its power to shield them against
wrongful aggression irom , me 010.
The keynote ot Secretary Root's ad-
mlrably conceived address before the

but those of peace, no territory except

significant to small and weak repub-
lies, was followed by a statement ot
broad commercial policy. "We wish,
said the secretary. to Increase our
prosperity, expana our traae ana grow
in wealth ana wisdom, but our concep-
tion of the true way to accomplish this bigger tax burden on Nebraska prop

ln establishing confidence ln the si n-1

is especially opportune at this time
when the Panama canal Is well on the

1870 the total annual exports of the
countries south of us has risen from

Mr. Smith savs. "la oDDOsed on urln-

in the Philadelphia editor's view "the
absolute exclusion of President Roose-

It is two years till the republican
party has to act, and the proof Is con-1
elusive that the president's mind, so

Kansas railways have wielded their
power ln politics so skillfully that they
are underassessed as compared with other
property and now David Overmeyer, a well
known lawyer who Is a democratic candi
date for the office of attorney general, has
advised that the state board be man
damused for the purpose of compellng It
to make a new assessment based on the
true value ot the property. The success
of the proposed procedure will be of- In
terest 'to the taxpayers ot many of the
other states which assess railway prop
erty through the agency of state boards,
since any taxpayer who feels thaUhe can
prove that the railways have been under
assessed, and there are many of them, can
Institute such a suit which will pass the
matter up to the courts. Bueh a suit was
brought against the State Board of Equal
isation of Nebraska In 1902 by Edward
Rosewater, who Is now a candidate for the
United Bute senate. He lost his suit, the
court holding that the board had acted
without an abuse of the discretion allowed
It. The success of such litigation would
hinge largely on the good faith ln which
the board acted. If a state board deliber
ately underassessed the corporations ln
face of evidence as to their true value.
such proceedings as Overmeyer proposes
might be of great service.

whether he haa paid too much or too little, but usually finds, later,
somebody who paid less than he.'

Neither the pure food law nor tho mea
Inspection law is entirely satisfactory In
Itself, but fortunately the deficiencies of
the former are largely made up for by the
latter. The officials having their enforce
ment In charge will work together and the
result. If their efforts are properly di
rected, will be satisfactory to the public.
The pure food law supplements the meat
Inspection law In that It prohibits mis
branding. Canned veal cannot be sold as
chicken without Incurring a severe pen
alty. A mixture of lard and cottonseed oil
cannot be labeled "pure leaf lard." There
will be a noticeable falling off In the num
ber of "Westphalia" hams on the market.
There is little doubt that the oft-made
prediction that the meat Inspection law
will prove to be the best thing that ever
happened for the packer will come true.
The secretary of agriculture emphatically
expresses the opinion that within a short
time the meat products of the t'nlted
State: will be purer and more wholesome
than any others In the world. The condi
tions existing In many of the packing and
slaughter houses of Europe are aa hxA as.
If not worse than, those which recently
prevailed In Chicago. As a consequence,
American meat products are likely sorn to
enjoy prestige In Europe greater than tr.ey
have ever had.

We burnt our youth out gaily. '
And. faith, we had our fun!
We laugh, and dream, and trusted Luck,
And now, at last, we're done.
The river is our kinsman:
Fettered, and foul, and blue,
With Its yearning lap St the arehe
Where the tugboats elbow through.
One dav, when the farce Is ended.
He'll'glve us a friendly bed.
When the New Year's caught US napping
With a gray, dishonored head.
Not vet we'll claim our lodging.
Good cousin, your sheets are damp
The bitter east wind snatche
At the flame of the flaring lamp.
Not yet. We'll risk our fortune.
If the game goes up again.
We'll kiss Marie at the corner
And try vour rest house then.
