'FOUNDED BT EDWARD ROSEWATER."
Our friends will notice at the head
of The Bee's editorial page a new line
reading, "Founded by Edward Rose
water." That this Inscription Is particularly
fitting will be at once recognised by
all who are familiar even In the slight
est with the wonderful story of The
Bee and Its editor during the thirty
five years of Its existence. It ever a
newspaper was founded by a man who
made It reflect his personality In Its
every Issue The Bee waa founded by
Edward Rose water.
The founding of a great newspaper
calls for ability and energy, courage
and conscientiousness that Is de
manded for the establishment of few,
If any, other private business enter
prises. From one point of view, the
work of founding The Bee never
ceased until the life work of its
fonnder ended, although the . paper
was firmly grounded as a permanent
institution after the first few years of
its earliest struggles were success
The enduring character of what was
accomplished by the, founder of The
Bee will be disclosed as time passes
on. The broad lines of policy which
he laid down for the conduct of his
beloved newspaper will be followed
out as nearly aa his successors can
keep to the plainly 'marked path with
a view to continuing Indefinitely the
proud record of the first thirty-five
years and maintaining unimpaired the
confidence now reposed by the people.
"Founded by Edward Rosewater."
The words alone carry with them a
world of -meaning. They should and
will be a never-dimming inspiration to
devotion to public duty, to the ennob
ling of honesty and Integrity, to the
courageous redress of publlo griev
ances by the protection of the weak
against the strong, to the encourage
ment of true charity that helps people
to help themselves, to the Inculcation
of the broadest humanity that en
shrines liberty and destroys religious
bigotry, race prejudice, political pro
scription and all the oppressing
shackles forged by narrow-vlsloned
A MAGNIFICENT SHOWING,
The compilation of the returns made
by the national banks of Omaha In
response to the last call of the comp
troller of the currency makes a
magnificent showing not only for the
banks themselves, but for the business
conditions upon which they depend.
The high water mark of deposits has
been raised up another notch, coming
very close to f 4 0,00 0,009, and nearly
$2,000,000 more than ever' before.
The loans and discounts are corre
spondingly enlarged, but still well
within the limits of safe1 and conserva
tive banking, while altogether the
exhibit of resources and liabilities dis
closes a most gratifying growth and
stability. ' '
This magnificent showing not only
reflects the commercial prosperity of
Omaha and the surrounding trade
territory, but it attests the confidence
which the managements of our na
tional banks command. Omaha banks
seem to be well out ot the game of
shaky and speculative banking, which
Is being played in ..too many of our
large cities where financial high-flyers
have been resorting to all sorts ot
questionable, If not criminal practices.
People are, it Is true, sometimes de
ceived by appearances, but so far as
all indications read, the banks of
Omaha were never administered under
more careful and conscientious direc
tion nor so strictly observant of all the
time-tried rules of safe and sound
Omaha's Immunity from bank
scandals tor the last decade is a cause
of great satisfaction and the prospects
are reasonably good that this immunity
will be indefinitely continued.
WOMEN WORKEUS AND LAZY
No harm will come If there should
be a good deal of emulation ot the
example of Mrs. Anna Gierschke, a
tired Chicago mother and wife, who
has expurgated her household of a laxy
husband aad two strapping eons, mak
ing good the order for them to depart
and not return until they demonstrate
self-supporting capacity by actual
work, and publishing notice in the
newspapers that she will not be respon
sible for debt contracted by them.
She Is not the only woman whose ex
cellent character is abundantly vouched
(or .who by her own honest toil and
sacrifices has at last accumulated
enough for her own modest mainte
nance, In addition to supplying for long
years undeserved bread to shiftless
able-bodied men whom It is her mis
fortune to have for husband or sons.
She is more fortunate, Indeed,' than
many of her sisters whose lives are
worn out by such parasites without
possibility of making provision for
the future when, their power as wage
earners having been exhausted, they
are heartlessly deserted. -
This is subject with which or
ganised society has so far lamentably
fUed to devise adequate means ot
dealing, the rare cases where com
munities have resorted to tar and
feathers and similar remedies being
entirely Irregular, however just and
effective sometimes,, aird certainly not
meeting general requirements. In Ne
braska we are progressive enough to
have a law making it a. highly penal
offense for a husband to abscond leav
ing his wife without support, a law
for whose enforcement happily some
disposition has been shown, but we are
without any effective legal provision
against the more common offense ot
stalwart husbands and sons who. refusing-
to - work, are contomptlblo
enough to stay at homo and devour
the bread earned by tolling mothers,
wives or daughters.
The rule adopted and enforced by
Mrs. Gierschke Is verily Ideal: "When
they can show me that they are willing
to work they can come home, but here
after In my house it Is to be the rule
that those who won't work csn't eat
or sleep, either." The only danger Is
that too few abused women will have
the force and courage, to apply thto
THt BOVRCByr LAWLESSNESS.
The refusal of James J. Hill as
president of the Great Northern rail
road to accept service ot a regularly
issued subpoena to appear before the
Minnesota - state , railroad commission
throws a sidelight on the source ot
lawlessness and law defiance too pre
valent among railroad men from the
highest to the ' lowest. Mr. HlU's
answer to the summons is said to have
been: "i can't attend that meeting. I
have too much business on hand. I
don't think I will be In the city at that
time, anyway," If a similar subpoena
were served npon an ordinary citizen
In an every day case at law and elicited
the same response the witness would
be speedily brought to time with a
bench warrant and held In custody or
put under bonds to appear at the speci
fied time and place.
The attitude of Mr. Hill, however,
seems to be the attitude assumed by
his subordinates on all of his railroads.
The Ignoring of court orders and the
defiance of constituted authority is by
no means extraordinary where a street
is to be stolen in the heart of a busy
city, a legislature corrupted or a tax
assessor bribed. In our own state Jim
Hill's P'irllngton road Is constantly
setting a most pernicious example in
Its refusal to pay its taxes like other
people and Its appeal to the courts to
prevent their collection In order to em
barrass and harass the people Into com
promising just claims. Not content
with practically dictating its own
assessments by the manipulation of
assessing officers, Jim Hill's road re
fuses to recognise the assessment so
made as binding and sets Itself up
above the law by which all other tax
payers are governed.
Is It any wonder that the people of
Nebraska, goaded by such acts of law
defiance, are determined to throw off
completely every vestige of railroad
domination ot their government? Is
It any wonder that they are resolved
that the railroads shall be brought
within the law and that taxes upon
railroad property shall be levied and
collected In the same manner as taxes
upon other property? The folly of
President Hill in refusing to accept a
subpoena In Minnesota is no greater
than the folly of his underlings In re
fusing to pay the taxes on his Burling
ton railroad In Nebraska. -
SECRETARY SHAWS CIRCULAR.
It is difficult to estimate the prac
tical effects of Secretary Shaw's cir
cular letter to national bank deposi
tories, admonishing them against loan
ing their surplus funds through brok
ers and others in New York at such
high rates of interest as imply specu
lation, and insisting that government
money shall be loaned for legitimate
business uses in the locality where it
is deposited, but the secretary's offi
cial action is, sentimentally, distinctly
beneficial apd consistent with the cor
rect line of deposit policy which the
treasury has been following for a
series vof years. The purpose of that
policy Is to separate government sur
plus cash, when turned over to banks,
from stock jobbing and speculative ex
ploitation. Secretary Shaw accordingly began
several years ago, over the angry pro
test of stock jobbing interests in New
York, to encourage the distribution
of surplus deposits to banks in all sec
tions of the country, Instead of heap
ing them up In New York and nearby
centers as the immemorial custom had
been. While a large portion ot the
deposits have thus been distributed,
and have been a considerable accom
modation to local business. It Is never
theless well known that thy quickly
found the way to New York when call
rates ruled high, those rates of course
marking the exigencies of speculation
In effect, therefore, the change "f
policy has been to considerable ex
tent a change from a direct to a cir
cuitous route Which the deposits took
to New York, where they played the
old part with reference to speculation.
The secretary's circular is merely an
attempt to use the government's in
fluence to atop the evasion of the cen
tral purpose of its systejn. -
Of course, when call rates In New
York or anywhere else rise to extrava
gant Revels, whether it be due to specu
lation or not, so aa to assure much
greater profits on loans there, avail
able funds- will precipitately move
thither from all over the country. It
it were possible to prevent national
bank depositories from directly shar
ing In such profit, It would accentuate
the stress In New York in such a time
as the present. While this might cor
respondingly push the call rate higher,
thus enhancing the temptation of
country lenders to rush funds to Wall
street, it would also tend In the long
run to accelerate other remedies'
through gold importation, forced liqui
dation of speculation, etc.
Such is doubtless the real expecta
tion ot the secretary at this time. It
is within his discretion to recall de
posits from any Interior national bank
If he should become aware that It was
denying their use to the hurt of local
business In order to fish in the specu
lative maelstrom of New York, and
this power .may have a deterrent ef
fect. A stringent call rate la not neces
sarily an evil, but rather the danger
signal that points .the right course to
good judgment. The government Is
on tho right track la using Its Influ
ence against all evasion of sound bus!
ness policy when speculation has over
reached Itself, and to strive steadily
to differentiate It from the fundamen
tal Interests of Industry and legitimate
AS TO THE ST. LOCIS JUNTA.
It Is questionable whether the band
of Mexican conspirators who have
headquarters In St Louis and publish
there a paper bitterly hostile to the
Dlas government can be summarily
dealt with by our government. Such
a band and their newspaper could, in'
deed, be suppressed In a jiffy In Mex
Ico by the mere Intimation ot a wish
by the chief executive, but we do
things differently In the United States,
where conviction for crime must be
by due process of law.
Unless It can be thus shown that the
St Louis Junta has actually violated
treaties or laws nothing can be done,
however, American public opinion may
disapprove of their course and however
disagreeable their doings and utter
ancea may be to the authorltlea ot
Mexico and our own country. In the
wide liberty of apeech and press which
we regard" as 'an essential principle of
our free institutions, such disagreeable
and even wrongful and hurtful epi
sodes are bound to happen. . No evi
dence has so far come to public at
tention of any violation of our neu
trality or other laws, although the
junta's aspiration is to make trouble
tor the Dlas government and to over
throw it it possible, and everything
It does or prints, so far as it has in
fluence, tends in that direction.
If the official representations com
ing out of Mexico of the overwhelm
ing strength of the Dlas government
be warranted by the facts, as they
seem to be, Immunity of the St. Louis
junta from government Interference
will not be vitally important, so long
aa the conspirators keep within our
law. There is abundant proof that
the Dial regime Is Impregnably In
trenched in Mexico, and that the peo
ple overwhelmingly favor its policy of
developing the country and protecting
and encouraging American invest
ments there.. The Mexican govern
ment can rest assured that our people
and government will act towards dis
turbers and conspirators, not in a sym
pathetic spirit, but with a view to hold
ing them to strict accountability within
Illinois' new primary law will have
to run the gauntlet of litigation in the
courts brought to test its constitution
ality. The contentions of those who
eppose It are that it entails an un
necessary and unlawful waste qt public
funds, that it prevents the voter who
has voted for nominees of one political
party one year from helping to nom
inate the candidates of another party
the same year, thus denying him the
right to change his mind, and alBO that
It discriminates unjustly by compelling
registration as a pre-requlslte to par
ticipation in the primary election. All
these objections were urged to the
Australian ballot law when it was In
troduced in this country and to most ot
the other election reforms that have
been accomplished from time to time,
and the courts will doubtless dispose
of them again in this connection in
