When the Interstate commerce bill
was pending In congress twenty years
ago Omaha ' merchants and manufac
turers. Instigated by the railroad
traffic managers, who made their
farored patrons believe Its operations
would prore disastrous to Omaha and
all other western cities, remonstrated
and petitioned against, the enactment
of the law. Time has effectively dis
pelled that delusion. The marvelous
development ot the Transmlsslsslppl
country tfas stimulated the growth of
Transmlsslsslppl cities whose commer
cial and Industrial expansion kept pace
with the region tributary to them re
gardless of the restricted legislation
embodied In , the original Interstate
commerce law and , the subsequent
anti-trust and anti-rebate laws.
The prophesies of railroad magnates
who opposed the revision of the inter
state commerce law and their predlc
lions'of disaster to commercial centers
hate already proved groundless The
almost unprecedented rise In the price
of railway securities In the face of the
Impending abolition of arbitrary and
discriminating , rates, which railroad
managers have claimed to be essential
to the effective and remunerative operation.-
affords conclusive proof that
the railroads will suffer no serious loss
by the new order of things. On the
contrary, the abolition of rebates,
drawbacks and under-hinded allow
ances to favored snippets cannot fall
to increase very materially the Incomes
of the railroads.
The stoppage of rebates In any form
may' affect heavy shippers who have
enjoyed special privileges to the detri
ment of competitors, but In the long!
run the enforcement of the square deal
in transportation will prove advantag
eous to industrial and commercial cen
ters. When every Jobber, manufac
turer and mill owner is placed on an
equal footing In transportation rates
and facilities there will be more equi
table competition and greater oppor
tunity for men possessed of capital.
brains and energy to build up side by
side with other men of capital, brains
and energy. This was Impossible so
long as the railroads were allowed to
exercise the function ot Providence In
making one set of business men flour
ish while foredooming their competi
tors to perish.
The strict enforcement of Interstate
regulation laws should, moreover, tend
to make -business men more aggres
sively independent. They will ; no
longer allow themselves to become
mere retainers and . political agents of
railroad managers, but will assert
their rights without restraint or tear.
Instead, of pulling apart they will pull
together to protect themselves and the
commercial community of which they
are a part whenever any discrimina
tion or diversion of traffic is attempted
by any railroad, and local patriotism
will Inspire every member of the com
munity to uphold them in every con
test they will wage against unjust dis
crimination or extortion.
The revolutionary Insurrection la
Cuba naturally leads people to look
behind the Immediate pretext to find
the underlying causes of it and the
Inevitable suspicion has been aroused
that the Sugar trust has had something
to do with the trouble-breeding agita
tion. Whether or not the revolution
ists look forward to annexation with
the United States, the inevitable drift
will surely be in that direction should
the Cuban government prove too weak
to maintain the nation as an indepen
dent republic. From such an outcome
the Sugar trust, It is pointed out,
would have everything to gain and lit
tle to lose. Annexation to the United
States would carry with it an abolition
of the tariff between the two countries
and the remission of the duties on Im
portations of raw' sugar from Cuba
would mean millions upon millions of
dollars In the pockets of the Sugar
trust magnates.
Some eastern observers, go so far as
to insinuate that the Sugar, trust has
had naid agenta throughout Cuba
hired for the special purpose of stir
ring up discontent and promoting the
revolutionary party by liberal contrt
buttons of money, but there is no dl
rect proof that it has gone as far as
this.' There is evidence, however, to
the effect that the Sugar trust people
have bought up practically all the best
sugar producing lands In Cuba and
have established themselves through
local connections pretty thoroughly all
over the Island
And when the effort
comes to be made to secure annexa
tion, the representatives of the Sugar
trust may be counted upon to form
the nucleus of the annexation group.
It Is manifestly no part of the duty
of our government to" promote this
movement at this time. The United
States gave notice to the world when
It took up the cause of Cuba against
Spanish tyranny that It bad no selfish
designs' upon the Cuban. Island or 1U
people, and It must In .good faith see
that Cuba has every opportunity to
proTe itself capable of self-govern,
There are a tew things that the
"Private Secretary" has not mentioned
in his compilation of the record ot the
dignified "senator- wno does' things."
He has, for example, "made to mention
of the retention ot Cadet Taylor aa
surveyor ot customs, ot the appoint
ment ot Brother-ln-Law Barrows as
his successor, of the strenuous efforts
to keep Bank Wrecker Mathewson In
charge ot the Winnebago Indiana, and
(he more strenuous efforts to prevent
the removal ot "Billy" Summers in
order to screen Indian land lease
speculators and public domain marau
der and protect crooked federal offi
cials from the Just penalty of their
crimes and misdeeds. He seems also
kto have forgotten the Market feeding
contract, which was purely accidental,
as It were, but did not shed much glory
or o the dignified gentleman-who-does-thlngs.
The Only consoling re
flection to the people of Nebraska Is
that he might have done orse.
No one will deny that the home com
ing of William Jenning s Bryan from a
year's absence from the country spent
In travel and study marks the kenlth
of his career so far aa it has unfolded.
The peculiar position of distinction oc
cupied by Mr. Bryan, whose only title
Is that ot American cltisen, Is certainly
unique, even discounting political con
siderations that enter largely into the
spectacularlsm ot the reception ar
rangements. The homage paid to Mr.
Bryan abroad has produced an
aroused appreciation of his personality
at home of which his friends and ad
mirers are preparing to take the fullest
advantage. To separate the plaudits of
those who are sincere from the shouts J
of the claquers, who have been planted
by the Btagemanager will be Im
possible, yet the welcome that greets
him. will unquestionably go down
deeper than 'any previous popular
demonstration with which he has been
honored. '
As for Nebraska and the people of
Nebraska they will rejoice at the
eminence of a fellow Nebraskan, how
ever, much the majority may amer
from him politically and disagree with
his political teachings. The very fact
that Mr. Bryan is a citizen of Ne
braska and has found the foundation
of his advancement In the honors con
ferred on him here the only official
honors he has ever enjoyed gives Ne
braska a large share In the recognition
he has achieved. Whatever the future
may or may not have in store for him,
the welcome home greeting will con
stitute a significant event that will go
down into history as one ot the most
remarkable tributes ever paid to a
man ,, occupying merely a private
station. .
In thanking his friends and neigh
bors who gathered to welcome his re
turn laden with the honor ot a nomina
tion for railway commissioner at .the
hands of the republican state conven
tion. Judge Williams, the Pierce
county , political trader,' feelingly as
sured them that "the office had come
to him unsought" It is not surpris
ing that Judge Williams should add
falsifying to his other accomplish
ments, although such braten lying can
hardly raise him In the public estima
tion. The other members of the
Pierce county delegation know and
can testify that Williams appealed to
them to repudiate their Instructions
and personal preferences am told
them within hearing of others thai un
less they did bo he might not succe
in getting the railway commissioner
ship nomination that had been prom
ised him as the consideration for de
livering that vote. A place on the
state ticket for one of. Its citizens
would be an honor to Pierce county If
It were honorably obtained, but noth
ing gained In dishonor can ever confer
honor upon anyone.
It will surprise John D. Rockefeller
to learn through the United States at
torney's office at Chicago -that the
Standard Oil company has been given
rebates. Mr.. Rockefeller would have
sworn positively that not a penny of
rebatea had been received by the octo
pus since it acquired ownership ot
most of the railroads and pipe lines. '
Acting Mayor Johnson Insists that
the law prohibiting the sale of liquor
on the Sabbath day cannot be con
strued to apply to sales on Sunday, be
cause Saturday Is the real Sabbath day,
In name as well as in fact On this
point Acting Mayor Johnson will be
sustained by some of the most pro
found doctors ot theology.
There is altogether too much grand
stand play about the declination of
Bryan to travel la President Mellen's
private car. It will cost only flO to
travel In a Pullman car state room
from New York to New Haven.

The republican state ticket placed
In the field .last Wednesday repre
tents the principles that tha Tale

the past ten or more years. In tha ticket
placed lit the field by the republicans of
Nebraaka every cltlten can take more
than a peaalng interest and. feel that In
supporting each Individual member there
on ha is representing, a principle of tha
republican party and not some great cor
po rat Ion or aggregation of corporations
doing business In this state. Placing this'
ticket In tha field 'means for tha republi
can a, and all who love a clean ticket
and clean men for office a signal vlctoiy
for Roosevelt republicanism, and a re"
buke to railroad republicanism as has In
the past been dealt out to the cltlsens of
this state through the pass bureau of
their several organisations. Tha placing
of this ticket In the field means to Ne
braska republicans a, majority of SO. 009
or mora at the polls this fall. An era In
the history of this state, when the cor
porations will pay their taxes ilka other
people, the enactment of a primary elec
tion law and the amendment to the con
stitution creating an . elective railroad
commission, and that of eliminating the
railroad pass from NebratkA politics. We
trust that tha time has arrived when the
rotten gang which has been doing buslnese
In Saline for tha last fifteen years will
hang up their fiddle and go out of business
forever. To this end every newspaper and
very good cltlxen la personally Interested
and will doubtless lend more than a help
ing hand. These things are not confined
to party lines alone, but there Is an oppor
tunity offered to every good cltisen, re
gardless of former political affiliations, to
take hold and aid In steering the good ship
Nebraska clear ot the breakers which in
the past have endangered It and to aid In
cleaning off a few of the barnacles which
have fixed themselves to its hulk.
While he has failed In securing a nomi
nation, there is no man who will take hold
with greater vim to carry out these results
than Hon. EM ward . Roaewater of The
Omaha Bee, a man whom we have regarded
as being better equipped to serve the peo
ple of this state than any other person
within Its borders,' but who On account of
former actions has, been greatly hampered
In making the race,'' 'but who In tha con

proud of his endorsements received.

The splendid and deserved victory won
by George I Sheldon In the republican
state convention . the. other night In his
nomination for governor ot Nebraaka marks
him for higher honors In the future In a
wider field of usefulness to the people of

Perhaps .no thought of such a result has
up to this time crossed the mind of the
big, honest and brainy cltisen of Cass
county who will this year carry' tha ban
ner of square deal republicanism to over
whelming victory but It Is the logic of
the times end conditions and requires no
prophetic vision to see and predict It
Qeorge I. Sheldon in daily life, In dally
Intercourse, In every day of his adminis
tration as the chief executive of Nebraska,
will prove to be . exactly that which the
people of Nebraska today believe him to
be able, fearless, conscientious, broad of

Before and during the days and nights
when members ot congress were hammer
ing pure food legislation Into shape, the
kitchens which prepared provender for the
restaurants ot the national 'rapltol were
In a condition bordering on a Chicago free
lunch foundry t The tact escaped observa
tion at the time, but as la usual In such
cases, prying eyas and sctlvs olfsctorles
were busy seeking te prove that statesmen
who wielded brooms for the people In gen
eral neglected to sweep at their own door.
Now a clean sweep Is on. Every kitchen
In the capitol Is undergoing renovation.
Some Idea of the conditions under which
the senate cooks prepared the viands may
be given when It Is stated that the sensts
kitchen wss a regular paradise for rats.
They held conference there, burrowed In
the floors, scampered about in the crevices
of the wails, and, In fact were free and
uncenflned. The senate kitchen Is In a
dingy sub-basement of the capitol, and
ordinary efforts to get rid of the rats
have (been Ineffectual.
Now It has been decreed that the rata
must go. To accomplish this a new floor.
composed of broken glass, a sprinkling
of lime,' and over that four Inches of ce
ment and tiling, will be laid. No rat it is
calculated, could bore through' the combi
nation. The plumbing and sewerage will
also be done ever. There will be a cold
storage room built ten feet square, and
In this all the perishable supptles for the
restaurant will be 'kept. This will ireauli

Scores Of senators and araalnna1W mem.
bers of the supreme court take their meats
in tne restaurant or the senate daily, and
the place is well patronised In the winter
months for at least three hours of the dsy.
The running of the piece Is let out by
contract but the margin of profit has not
been large, because of tha ahort time In
which the restaurant Is patronised. The
government does not furnish any of the
paraphernalia for the senate restaurant
but gives the location, lls-ht and fuel free
of charge.
In the ease of tha house restaurant the
United States furnishes everything to the
eeper except food and heln emnlnved.
When tha government stopped the sale of
liquor at the capitol, a few years ago, ths
pronts in tne house restaurant fell off. so
that one year the place was actually con
ducted at a loai of 13.000. La at year the
patronage was better. Ths policy In the
house restaurant Is ta . ensure nulrlrnM
of service. Members who have only a few
minutes ror luncheon are accommodated
by an arrangement so that orders of a
simple character can be filled Immediately.

The 8100,000 left by Albert Wlllcox to the
National Association of Audubon Societies
Ik a notable legacy more notable In some
respects than bequests . of ths regulation
order ten times Its slse. It evidences a
sentiment not customarily looked for In
one engrossed in business pursuits. There
Is an agreeable evidence of idealism In this
gift for the protection of wild birds and
animals by a man whose life work lay
along material lines.
The bequest should do much to further
a movement which within recent years has
done Wonders tor the preservation of bird
and animal life, but which yet has prob
ably accomplished more for Its protection
through the moral safeguards erected by
an awakened publlo opinion. There Is tha
expectation that the societies may benefit
to the extent of ISOO.OOO more from the
residuary estate of Mr. Wllleoxv
There are now Audubon societies In
thirty-five states. They have practically
revolutionised game legislation within a
decade and brought about a new order of
things for the feathered world. It can
but amase an old-school sportsman to dis
cover that the sovereign powers of an
American state are now extended over sea
gulls, so changed Is American sentiment
on this question within a generation. 'The
murder laat year of a Florida gams war
den ' while on duty guarding heron nests
from spoliation was significant of the
growth of this new humanity.
