Tho corporation stalking horses
who hope to bo tho beneficiaries of
legislative manipulation if the senator
ship were to bo delivered u hereto
fore over the legislative bargain coun
ter and their paid agents are still en
deavoring to set the pins to prevent
any nomination of a candidate for
United State senator in tho coming
republican stato convention.
Among the specious arguments they
advance are these: That convention
nomination would endanger the success
of the ticket, that the railroads can con
trol conventions easier than they can
control legislatures and that the nom
ination in convention would have no
binding effect upon the members of
the legislature by whose votes the sen
ator Is later to be elected. The fact
that failure to nominate, after leadlnf
the people to believe their wishes were
to govern, would be dangerous, if not
fatal, to party success, they carefully
evade, as also the fact that the rail
roads would prefer convention nomina
tion if they thought they could handle
conventions easier. While It is con
ceded that convention nomination If
not as directly responsive to the will
of the rank and file of tho party as
would be nomination by direct pri
mary, yet. when the issue is clearly
drawn, it surely comes nearer to direct
popular choice than would remanding
it to the legislature.
Lest we forget, it may not be amlsi
to recall the Nebraska deadlock of
six years ago, from whose blasting ef
fects the party has not yet wholly re
covered. That deadlock lasted from
the commencement to the very ad
journment of the, legislature a dead
lock purposely produced by the rail
road bosses, who stopped at nothing to
defeat the candidates committed to the
interests of the people as against cor
porate aggression. The wishes of the
rank and file of the party aa expressed
In the vote of preference at the preced
ing election were defiantly disregarded
and out of the deadlock finally came
two senators answering to no popular
demand whatever. It waa resentment
of and disgust with the betrayal of the
people In thla senatorial fiasco that
made the plan of convention nomina
tion welcome two years ago. because
it held out the promise that a senator
might be elected of whose candidacy
the public would be apprised in ad
vance and on whose qualifications they
might have an opportunity to pass.
We doubt very much whether the
people of Nebraska are ready to go
back with the senatorship to legisla
tive bargain and sale, and invite repe
tition of the disgraceful deadlock with
its disappointing results. Had direct
nomination or convention nomination
prevailed six years a (to the people
would have chosen their senators In
stead of having them chosen for there

now realized that the power lies In
their own hands, the people are not

The official of an eastern agricul
tural college who has been at great
pains to collect answers to the Ques
tion why boya leave the farm, amass
ing material for a lengthy magazine
article which has attracted no little
attention, would probably have been
more profitably employed, because get
ting nearer the truth of the matter, by
Inquiring into the reasons why so
many boys are not leaving the farm.
For abundantly verified facts establish
the point that during the last decade
there has been a distinct tendency
among farmers' boya to make farming
their occupation. The outlook for
farming under present conditions is
very different from what It was when
the brlght-witted boy was destined for
the professions or trade and only his
duller brethren were deemed proper
for the farm. The trend of affairs la
to reverse the process.
Competition of rich western land
with the lean or worn soils of the east
has produced enormous economic con
sequences, now becoming better un
derstood, which, in connection with
other forces, bear directly on the
concentration of population In Indus
In the older settled parts of the
west, particularly west of the Missis
sippi, there has lately been a quite gen
eral movement from the farms to the
towns, but It has been very largely the
older people, whose places on the
farms are taken by the young, and not
compulsoiily for livelihood, but largelj
because of the value and desirability
of the farms to their sons.
In short, the Inherent attractions of
the farm have been enormously multl
plied, and they will be relatively en
hanced If Industrial development con
tinues In the direction In which it Is
moving. Telephone, rural mall serv
ice, machinery, diversification and spe
cialization of farm Industry and the
possibilities opened by applied science
are pontributlng to the comfort and
profit of farm life In a degree that
would have been Inconceivable not
very long ago. It la a field that ap
peals now more every year to farmers'
boys. The notable growth' of agrlcul
tural colleges, experiment stations and
various associations, as well as the ex
tension of government ' Interest, to
some extent measures this progress.
It Is likely to Increase rather than
diminish, notwithstanding there is dis
position to regard the occupation of
land as far advanced. But the subdi
vision of farms, with Intensive cultl
vatlon, has only fairly begun. Hardly
any limit can be put to the posslblll
ties of Irrigation In the rainless re
gion or of dry cultivation In sub
humid tracts. Moreover, practical
farming has already become for boye
the best possible qualification for suc
cess In Innumerable employments more
or lees directly related to the farm.
Many farmers' boys, of course, are
leaving the farms, but 'not more of
them, and probably far fewer, propor
tionately than leave the occupations of
their fathers engaged in other indus
try, but the Influences are strengthen
ing and multiplying that should hold
them to the farm.
siaira or coxTisuiyo PROsrrBrrr.
On every Bide we have unmistakable
signs of continuing prosperity. The
government crop report Just Issued
gives estimates of what will be the
greatest wheat crop recorded In Amer
ican history, which also means the
greatest wheat crop ever raised in any
country. The outlook for corn like
wise promises to make the yield a
record breaker, and. barring unfore
seen contingencies, the product of the
farm In other staples will not run be
hind In any respect.
Aa another Index of prosperity the
remarkable Increase of railway earn
ings for the first six months of this
year is decidedly significant. From
returns made to it the Financial
Chronicle figures out an Increase of
more than 14 per cent In gross earn
ings over those of the corresponding
months of 1905. or about $130,000,
000. The not earnings will probably
show an advance over last year just
as large, because, although some re
ductions have been made In passenger
rates, these will be offset by the aboli
tion of rebates and similar conces
In the iron and steel Industry, which
is taken to reflect general business con
ditions, the output of pig iron for the
first half of 1906 reached 12,602,901
tons, against 11.S29.205 tons the pre
ceding six months.' and the total for
the present year is figured to exceed
25,000,000 tons, which will be more
than 2,000,000 tons greater than 1905.
If the indulgence of taste for luxury
Is a sign of prosperity, there is en
lightenment In the statistics of our
diamond Imports, which for the fiscal
year ending June 30. 1906, were val
ued at $34,862,551, as compared with
$27,419,000 in 1905 and $18,804,000
Signs of continuing prosperity
within our own horizon are likewise
plainly visible. The era of building
expansion shows no flagging. The
condition of the banks with reference
to deposits and loans Is most reassur
ing and business enterprises of all
kinds are making steady headway.
With all these substantial founda
tions for uninterrupted prosperity the
prospects for the Immediate future
were never better, although now, as
in all cases of high tide, the prudent
man will keep within the range of
realities and out of the realm of spec
The disastrous wreck of the Italian
steamer Slrio off the coast of Spain u
week ago draws attention to the un
necessary risks too often run in at
tempting dangerous short cuts. The
captain of the steamer In his over
haste to save time ran his vessel upon
the rocks, destroying the lives of more
than 300 people and visiting upon him
self the penalty of his rashness by
committing suicide as the boat sank
beneath the waves. ,
The tendency of modern Industrial
ism in many walks of life Is toward
the dangerous short cuts. Our zeal to
travel fastest makes us reckless of all
laws of safety and precaution. To the
dangerous short cuts are to be charged
up hundreds of thousands of lives and
millions of dollars of property un
necessarily sacrificed on both land and
sea year after year.
Nor is the mere loss of life and phy
sical property the only tribute that
Is exacted. The temptation to try
dangerous short cuts to wealth Is
most subversive of moral sensibilities.
The get-rich-qulck Idea takes no ac
count of whether the path to the goal
Is the straight road or the crooked
lane. It is safe to say that nine-tenths
of those who co wrong In a business
way have no evil intentions at the
start, but aro misled Into taking a
dangerous short cut to fortune and
get grounded upon the rocks before
they realize where they are.
The moral has been pointed out
over and over, but cannot be preached
too often. The sate road is the best
road even If It Is not the shortest.
The short cut that leads to disaster
brings no reward except misery.

While the amended Interstate com

be long before its full benefits are

Many of these abuses no doubt are

prosecutions which the administration
has successfully conducted have power
fully influenced the roads. But the
penalties under the amended law for
violations and the devices resorted to
for evading the old law are so much
more severe, and the means for en

There is no more reason why the
governor of the state should appoint
the fire and police commissioners for
the city of South Omaha and assume
the responsibility for the police regu
lations of that city than that he should
appoint the mayor and council and as
sume responsibility for the financial
administration of municipal affairs. If
this responsibility rests upon him he
should, it is true, discharge it, but the

Only a little dust
So small that a rose might hide It;
And I trust In God or I try to trust,
When I kneel In the dark beside it.
I kneel In th dark and sav: -
I only dream that I weep;
She would not leave me Hiid go away
She has only fallen asleep.
Fallen asleep, as oft
She climbed to my heart to rest,
Her white arms twining my neck, as soft
As down on a dove's sweet breast.
Bleep came In the waning light
And kissed her there on the twilight staJrs
That lead to the morning lliflit.
And thnt she will wake I know.
And smile at a grief like this;
It could not be nn would leave me so.
With never a good-night kiss!
80 I kneel In the dark and say:
1 only dream that I weep;
She would not leave me and go away
She has only fallen asleep.
