THE KET TO THE TVIT.LE.
The Investigation into the finances
of the Burlington railroad undertaken
by Attorney General Iladley of Mis
sourl to combat the contentions of the
railway attorneys In what is known as
the Missouri maximum rate case, has
developed a puzsle which on its face Is
more mysterious than the old 13-14-15
combination. The general auditor of
the Burlington road, under oath for a
deposition, had the audacity to assert
that his road is carrying local traffic
In Missouri at a loss in excess of
$800,000 a year, which would be so
increased in case the maximum freight
rate law enacted in 1905. reducing
rates on a large number of commodi
ties from 20 to 40 per cent were put
Into force that it would reach f 1,000, -000
a year.- The witness under exam
ination, was compelled -to admit that
the Burlington's net profits on state
and Interstate business taken together
in Missouri in 1904 and 1905, amount
to about $5,000,000 annually, but
stuck to- It thai the more local busi
ness the ' road handled the mora it
The key to the puxzle with which
Attorney General Hadley seems to
have grappled in vain may be found
by coming to Nebraska and digging
out of the legislative archives the let
ter over the signature of General
Manager Holdrege, representing that
road In this state, dated March 6,
1905, endeavoring to uphold the rates
in force in Nebraska, which are much
higher than the rates exacted in Mis
souri. In a labored argument the
Holdrege letter undertook to make
several points, among them:
S. That the supreme court of the United
States In its decision upon the Nebraska
maximum rate cases requires that In con
sidering the measure of the reasonableness
of a local freight schedule all Interstate
traffic must be eliminated and that rates
within state boundaries cannot be reduced
by law below a compensatory basis.
It can safely be asserted that no rail
road In the state of Nebraska can be sus
tained at Its present condition of efficiency
and give the local service now rendered or
expected and depend exclusively on local
state traffic at the present rates, and that,
therefore, existing state rates cannot law
fully be reduced by this legislature.
And further the letter attempts to
clinch the position by this convincing
The fact Is that by reason of competition
and the effort to moke suitable rates to In
crease the volume of trafflo the present
tariffs in many of the agricultural states
of the west are clearly Insufficient to pay
In any return Upon the Investment with
out the assistance of Interstate trafflo,
which, in accordance with the United
States court decision, Is not an element
for consideration In the problems before
the state legislature.
Transformed Into cold figures, the
lawyer who wrote the Holdrege letter
asserts that the traffic local to Ne
braska is only 20 per cent of the traf
fic handled in and through this state
by his company, making the net earn
ings upon this strictly local trafflo
tor the preceding fiscal year only $459
per mile, amounting to 1.76 per cent
upon the valuation "upon which we
are willing to pay tales',' and "these
figures clearly cannot be considered a
.fair rate, of Interest npon the actual
' The puzsle whose key Attorney
General Hadley is looking for, there
fore, is unlocked by the statistical
Jugglery by which the Burlington
charges as expenses of operation In
Missouri the total outlay In that state
and offsets this against its receipts
from local traffic while crediting all
receipts from through business as
pure velvet to the profit account. In
other words, the Burlington financiers
persist in making the local traffic In
each state bear all the items of ex
pense for both local and through traf
fic, and then set up the claim that It
is losing money on local business and
that a reduction of local rates will be
equivalent to confiscation of their
On this theory every railroad In the
country would have to' be regarded as
a charitable institution, carrying
freight and passengers out of pure
benevolence to the people and trust
ing to divine Provldence'to furnish a
suitable reward at some future date.
The Bee Is sure it voices the senti
ment of the1 people of Nebraska in ex
pressing the hope that Attorney Gen
eral Hadley will go to the bottom of
the Burlington rate extortions and
blaze a way for our legislature and
railway commission to follow. '
ROBERT ROBERTS UlTT.
Forty-eight years ago the memora
ble debate between Abraham Lincoln
and Stephen A. Douglts at Freeport.
111., was held from a platform
erected in a field adjacent to the
town. The immense multitude was
growing "Impatient of delay when the
tall form of Lincoln arose and. look
ing anxiously over the crowd, ho
called out: "Where's Hitt? Is Hitt
Such was the historic scene in
which Robert Roberts Hitt first pub
licly appeared, then a slender youth
acting as stenographer in a forensic
combat which doomed one great parly
leader to disappointment and defeat
and gave the nation another and a
greater in his stead. The death of
the person for. whom Lincoln waited
before beginning his famous Freeport
speech removes, now one of the most
useful men in our public life, who bad
served continuously twenty-four years
in the national house. Congressman
Hltt's place in congress was unique,
for while a staunch partisan on broad
lines, hla candor, courtesy and abili
ties were such as. to disarm personal
and party animosity and In the for
warding of public" business to secure
the prestige of his judgment smong
the opposition almost equally with his
own party. At the head of the foreign
affairs committee, for which a previ
ous extensive . diplomatic experience
bad pra-emlnently qualified him, no
man Id'coDgrcss has had a greater in
fluence in shaping the course of af
fairs with which that committee deals
during the last decade.
Congressman Hitt was a type all too
rare in the public service, as modest
as he was pure in character and ef
ficacious, and such was the respect in
which he was held by his constituents
that his tenure of office was by com
mon consent and he was left at liberty
to devote himself to the broad and
truly national concerns of ths govern
MEAS1XO OF INTERVENTION
;The circumstance that must impress
American observers of Secretary Taft's
mission is the average Cuban's blissful
Ignorance of what intervention, if the
United States shall decide upon it, ac
tually means. Cuban Ignorance doubt
less Arises from their unfamillarlty
with genuine government whose effect
Is order, public security, Justice and
the supremacy of the law. Involving
stern and prompt repression of condi
tions of Outlawry such as exist today
on the island. Their standpoint and
experience are indeed so utterly dif
ferent from our own that their pres
ent attitude cannot but be incompre
hensible to our people.
Nothing should be more clear, how
ever, from President Roosevelt's ex
plicit message to Cuba and from the
nature of the case than that interven
tion, whatever its duration or what
ever its ultimate effect on the relations
between the island and the United
States may be, will Immediately and
conclusively stamp out the outbreak
ing and lawless tendencies which are
dominant and which are incompatible
with peaceful living, industry and per
sonal and property rights. In short,
the moment Intervention is ordered
the full resources of the United States,
civil and military, become dedicated
irrevocably to efficient government
throughout the length and breadth of
Thirty thousand American residents
are now engaged in business in Cuba
and more than $200,000,000 of Amer
ican, and like amounts of English and
other European capital, are invested
there. Moreover, every legitimate
Cuban interest is likewise vitally de
pendent upon a sure regime of law
and order. The notion that all these
vast interests and the fate of the
island may depend upon the caprice
and predatory Instincts of a horde of
lazy and vicious mongrels led on by
adventurers is one that intervention
will rudely and instantly collide with.
The jeering remark of the revolution
ist as he gazed on our warships In
Havana harbor that "they cannot
come to the tall grass," will not be
repeated after experience with Amer
ican Intervention. The army that
hunted down and wiped out the
Apaches in our western mountains
and the Filipino insurgents in far
eastern fastnesses will summarily es
tablish the fact that the grass does
not grow tall enough in Cuba to hide
and protect horse-stealing, house
burning and ' crop-destroying out-
throats and vagabonds.
What disorderly Cubans, though
they seem not to know it, are up
against is government in the form of
the real thing, of their own doing if
they are yet able to do it or if not by
American soldiers and sailors who
will certainly prove equal to the job.
And they are destined verily to know,
if not before taking the dose then be
yond a peradventure afterwards, that
their great and good friend Theodore
Roosevelt means exactly what he has
said to them.
TOBERCULOSIS IN THE SCHOOLS. ,
With the opening of the school year
is resumed the systematic effort which
was inaugurated some time since to
protect children In the Chicago public
schools against the spread of tubercu
losis. The scheme which the school
board is evolving, with the aid not
only of the regular staff of the public
health department, but also of the
Chicago Tuberculosis institute and of
the organizations of which Jane Ad
dams Is the head, goes far beyond the
farthest that has yet been attempted
In most cities where progressive treat
ment has been Introduced, and aims at
nothing l6ss than conclusive separa
tion of those who are so disced as to
create danger of infecting healthy
The practical application of the
scheme includes such an examination
as will certainly discover all cases of
tuberculosis and their classification as
contagious and non-contagious, since
it is admitted that the latter class is
very numerous, requiring regular in
spection of all schools at stated peri
ods by medical inspectors. Nothing
less than such an inspection will suf
fice for exclusion of those who are suf
fering from the disease the moment
their presence in the class room be
comes a menace to the other children.
There will, of course, be a consider
able number of "suspects" and a room
In each building is to be set apart for
the purpose of examining and treating
them, while a corps of trained nurses
is to be employed to visit their homes,
thus extending relief to the afflicted as
well as protection for the-sound pu
Obviously ths alms of the move
ment are inspired by ths progress of
sanitary and medical science, but the
success of the methods must depend
almost entirely pon the wisdom and
tact of school administration. Novel
applications of medical, science which,
under ths irresistible rule of military
authority, accomplished wonders in
the Japanese army la actual war
might fall and produce only trouble
through maladroit school manage
ment. At the outset at least the most
extreme circumspection will have to be
observed not to attempt too much and
to avoid Interference or mistakes that
would offend parents or give s handle
to popular ignorance and prejudice
It would still be a matter of extreme
delicacy and difficulty to conform pub
llo school administrates to ' the
known principles of medical science
even if public sentiment were far more
enlightened thsn It is.
But the serious undertaking to com
bat the terrible "white plague" in the
public schools of Chicago and' other
large cities can hardly fall to he of in
calculable benefit. Generally peak
ing, it falls within the lines which
science has already marked out for
public policy. -Now a novelty in most
of Its methods and sure to cause Irrfc
tation and. Indeed, many hardships
until necessary collateral adjustments'
are effected, it will become familiar by
use and so welcome by demonstrated
salvation to multitudes that the publio
will be amazed that such methods
were so long neglected.
THE DAILY NEWSPAPER A NECESSITY.
People are steadily realizing more
and more how the dally newspaper,
which once used to be regarded as a
luxury, hss come to be a necessity' to
every one who must keep In any de
gree in touch with what other people
The imperative need of a dally
newspaper Is strikingly emphasized,
although in a humorous way, by thJ
remarks of General Horace Porter at
the Associated Press banquet in New
York last week. "We all criticise the
paper," said be, "we all abuse It and
we all take it. We cannot, eat our
breaskfast without it. We have no
appetites for our dinners until we
have seen Its contents." If people
had to do without their breakfasts or
without their daily newspaper, no
doubt there would be a divergence of
choice, but no one who can have both
wants to dispense with either.
While the demand for the newspa
per Is a demand for the news of the
world, the first demand is (or informa
tion of persons and things among
whom we live. The home newspaper
is the newspaper that can be least
easily given up, as everyone knows
who travels away from home. A well
known Omaha business man who had
been spending some time in Denver
declared the other day that he "could
get no satisfaction out of any paper
obtainable there except The Bee and
that he continued to read The Bee,
exclusive, a day old rather than the
local papers of later publication date."
This is by no means a unique experi
ence, as many a reader of The Bee has
discovered what a superior paper his
subscription brings him only when he
Is out of reach of a desired copy.
Many people do not learn the full
value , of their dally newspaper until
they find they cannot get it, and this
experience makes them appreciate it
more when they get one like The Bee
clean and up-to-date, and served to
them promptly at a comparatively
trivial price.-... .. ..
' THE RUSSELL SAQE WSTATI.'
The heirs of the late Russell Sage
have probably fully realized their
hopes through a settlement of their
contest of his will whereby each re
ceives double its $25,000 bequest, al
though their formal demands would
have consumed the major part of the
estate. . The contest. It is apparent,
was utterly devoid of merit, but the
contestants were nevertheless in a po
sition in which they could defeat the
benevolent purposes of the dead multi
millionaire, who Implicitly trusted his
wife to dispense the fortune. As she
is well advanced in years the executors
have doubtless acted wisely in settling
Jitlgatlon which might have been pro
tracted beyond her lifetime and ' the
cost of which would likely have been
far greater than the additional amount
paid to the heirs, notwithstanding the
public contempt which their extortion
The settlement accordingly will re
lease this vast estate for application to
the benevolences which Mrs. Sage will
administer. Such distribution of a for
tune the lowest estimates of which
are from $60,000,000 to $80,000,000
thus becomes a matter of universal in
terest, since Mr. Sage himself gave so
public intimation of his plans and de
sires. But it is known that there was
a definite, although possibly an un
written, understanding between him
and his wife, in whom he reposed im
plicit confidence and to whom, there
fore, he left his monumental accumu
lations in the form of absolute owner
ship as the surest means of carrying
out his benevolent designs. Their pre

Patent medicine makers, who are
members of the Proprietary associa
tion, give it out that they propose to
comply with "every provision of the
national pure food and drug law and
that this law should obviate the ex
cuse for the many crude schemes for
state legislation ' in regard to patent
medicines proposed from time to time.
The national law, they a say, applies
to all foods and medicines made fa
one state and shipped to other states
and, therefore, ths caetment by stats
legislatures of an identical law would
cover only foods and medicines sold
exclusively In the state in which they
are manufactured. The prospects are,
therefore, that the patent medicine
makers who comply with the national
law will want state legislation along
the same lines to protect themselves
against limitations, with sale confined
to the state of manufacture. If for
nothing else, this should be good news
to' everyone except those engaged in
legislative holdup work.
