The rspldlty of the extension In the
east of reduced maximum fares, both
for interstate and local trips, is re
flected In the filings with the national
commission, although comparatively
few of them have come to widespread
public notice. Yet the revolution is so
marked that high railroad officials are
quoted as expressing the opinion that
the 3-cent maximum will be prac
tically established In the New England
states, New York and Pennsylvania
and possibly Indiana in "advance of
legislative action, Ohio, as Is well
known, having legally established that
limit last winter.
It is suggestive that a number of ap
plications by Important roads have al
ready been made to the national com
mission for permission to recall filings
of reductions from the 1 or 3-cent
to the tH-cent maximum, on the
ground that competing roads have an
nounced reduction to 2 cents, whlcn
they desire to meet promptly. The
Pennsylvania, which started the move
ment,, had hardly announced a reduc
tion, a few weeks ago, from 1 to
I tt cents one way on its main', line
east of Pittsburg before the Erie re
piled with a cut' to 1 cents, over Its
whole system, with a transferable t
cent flat rate mileage book, but the
Boston ft Albany, the New York, New
Haven ft Hartford and other roads
have now made one bite oTthe cherry,
so that the 2-cent rateWpi be exten
sively, effective within v thirty days,
practically compelling competitors gen
erally to come to that level.
It would not be so Important It these
reductions were made merely In the
heat of a 'passing rivalry and liable
to be as suddenly restored. ' The law
now prevents this, and besides the
change is deliberately made as. a per
manent policy on the settled convicJ
tion that , tha old maximum can or
at least should bo -longer be main
tained. And the eastern roads that
are vainly resisting the reduction are
doing so, not on the ground that It
should not be msde as a matter both
of public and business policy, but that
if made voluntarily by them they fear
Immediate agitation for compulsory
reduction below the 3-cent rate.
There has already been a more favor
able response than mbst anticipated to
the Iowa legislature's Invitation to the
states to Join In a concerted movement
to secure a constitutional amendment
for election of United States senators
by direct vote of the people. Already
twenty-nine states have given notice
of intention to be represented by dele
gates in the convention to be held at
Des Moines In December, and assur
ances have been given that several
other states will take like action.'
There is, therefore, , ground for hope
that the effort may produce some prac
tical results. ; " k.- . i '.: .
The advocates, of this, reform have
long recognised the fact that It would
be, necessary t secure a constitutional
convention which requires petitions
therefor. to congress of two-thirds of
the state legislatures. Many legisla
tures have heretofore, at one time or
another, adopted joint resolutions, but
there has been no concerted movement
among them. The object of the Iowa
meeting is to attempt effective organi
sation, whereby the co-operation of at
least the necessary- thirty state legisla
tures may be brought to bear upon
congress to Insure the calling of a con
stitutional convention.',
Such a movement should : . by no
means become " occasion for relaxing
the Increasingly successful effort . la
the severaj states to'secure In advance
Indirectly, as near as may be, the ef
fect of. the desired constitutional
amendment through the direct' primary
nomination or, "where that is not done,
through convention nomination of sen
atorial candidates, the same being
morally binding on members of , legis
latures, but on the contrary, It should
rather stimulate that, effort 'every
where, because every such nomination
and election not only brings the United
States senate at once 'nearer popular
control, . but hastens the day when
popular senatorial elections will be
compulsory and uniform throughout
thd union. . ,".,'" . .
Probably the most important act of
the Interstate Commerce commission
so far as facilitating .the. operation of
the new law Is concerned Is its de
termination to grant Interpretation of
the law upon' proper request, not
withstanding Its long established prac
tice and announced Intention after the
amendments were adopted at the late
session of congress to follow, the
Judicial rule wherebV questions are not
decided until regularly presented in
the form of concrete controversies re
lating to some particular problem. The
Judicial rule, which Is the fruit of cen
turies of experience. Is recognized as
vital to sound court practice, although
ft may often entail-delay, expense and
sometimes serious Injury. If followed
by ' the commission the court, rule
would obviously postpone for years
the definite settlement wi innumerable
questions of construction of the rate
law and practice under It, which It Is
of the highest public concern to clear
up at the outset or promptly to put
in the course of settlement All this
has been done, so far as tha commis
sion can do it. by permitting parties
in proper interest, whether railroad
companies, shippers or communities to
come directly before' the commission
and secure Ha interpretation on im
portant, but doubtful points, which
otherwise could not be known till a
specific Issue had been Joined , In an
actual case and passed through a long
process of bearing in its turn on a
crowded docket - V .
The commission ts essentially aa ad
ministrative body, although Judicial
methods are necfesary, ' In some
branches of Its work. ' It will, of
course, continue to employ them In
all matters to which they are appro
priate. As to other matters the com
mission is actually proceeding to de
cide Important questions of legal In
terpretation, and has In fact already
disposed of some, In advance of their
appearance as controverted issues. The
Important decisions si to payment for
transportation and as to exemption of
cotton export rates from the thirty
day notice, are examples of prompt
settlement of questions which by court
practice would have dragged along In
definitely, and forcibly suggest the Im
mense aggregate saving of time that
will be effected.
, The commission Is, without ques
tion, gaining distinctly In public con
fidence as an efficient agent of public
control policy. Among the gravest
complaints against the course of things
under the old law was the almost In
terminable delays of Judicial proced
ure, both before the commission itself
and In the courts to which all import
ant questions could be transferred,
even In spite, of its rulings. Antici
patory interpretations , can jeopardise
no essential rights, for court '.appeal
remains though if has been greatly
simplified and curtailed,' but Innumer
able disputed points which formerly
had to await decision of the main
Issue, can be promptly and certainly
disposed of.
The telephone franchise controversy
In Omaha has at last reached the stage
where the Nebraska Telephone com
pany Is ready to make some conces
sions to the demand for lower rates.
In a communication pending before
the city council .the telephone com
pany offers three alternative proposl-tlons-v-one
of them for the payment of
a royalty of 2 'per cent on gross earn
ings Into the city treasury, beginning
at once, and the other two for re
duced charges to telephone users, be
ginning January 1, 190 f. Of the
two proposals for reduced charges,
one contemplates a reduction of 60
cents a month from the present charge
of 17 for Individual metallic circuit
unlimited business telephones, with
the abolition of toll charges on con
nections between Omaha and South
Omaha, and the other a straight cut
of $1 a month from the present $7
charge. The condition ipon which all
these offers are made is that they will
continue so long as no franchise be
granted any other company, and that
the concessions are to lapse at any
time another franchise proposition is
submitted to the voters of the city. ,
The Bee has no hesitancy in saying
that it believes the council should ac
cept one of these propositions before
they are withdrawn, and that the pro
position accepted preferably 1 Is
the $1 reduction on monthly rentals of
business 'phones. While other tele
phone propositions " are '' before the
council, there' is no assurance that
any of them' will ever be voted by the
people, nor even a guaranty that they
will be submitted to the people for
approval or rejection. If the conces
sion offered by the Nebraska Tele
phone company should be accepted
and these other ordinances should fall
of adoption by the council, the nsers
of business telephones. In ' Omaha
would be so much the gainers, while
should the offer be terminated after
acceptance by the adoption of one or
more of the franchise ordinances no
one would be the loser. Moreover,
shbuld the charges for telephones be
once reduced, no matter what the con
dition, the chances of ever having
them pnt back to their former places
over the protest of telephone patrons
would be very, small Indeed.
The plan the council should pursue
right now Is to take what Is within
reach and then ask for more.
Before putting In a claim for former
County Attorney English for dissolv
ing the local coal exchange as a trust,
It might be well to inquire whether
the exchange ever went out of business
or changed its methods of business.
Members of the exchange declare that
County Attorney English simply ex
amined their organisation - and told
them that they were well within the
limits of the law and could go ahead.
The proof of the pudding Is that the
exchange went ahead without let, or
hindrance during the entire time the
present democratic candidate was offi
cially empowered to put It out of busi
ness. The World-Herald makes a frantic
appeal to the democratic mayor and
council to redeem the pledgees on
which they were elected. "Why this
delay In fulfilling campaign prom
lees?" It demands. "What has be
come of the promise to give Omaha
universal street car transfers, dollar
gas, telephone competition and other,
reforms?" It continues. And in the
next breath It wants the people of
Nebraska to give full faith' and credit
to another set of platform promises
made for political buncombe purposes
by voting for the candidates nomi
nated on the democratic state ticket.
With the approach of another politi
cal campaign the discovery is again
made that the Board of State Univer
sity Regents conducts its business be
hind closed doors. This, however, Is
nothing new, for the board of
i e gents has pursued this practice con
sistently, under both republican and
fusion control. Nonetheless, the se
cret session business on the part of
public bodies Is bad and ought to be
abolished; not only In the university,
but wherever other governing officers
undertake to perform public duties

hospitality Is fully maintained.

Bryan's Banning Mate,
Washington Star.
Th New Tork reporters, with charac
teristic Irreverence and jocularity, had a
good deal of fun with th Nebraskana who
came east to greet Mr. Bryan. They
limned them with broad brushes and doubt-
lass Invented many of th queer doings
and sayings ascribed to them. All, how.
ever, was In pleasant part, and probably
th Nebraska ns laughed as heartily as
anybody else.
This comes from Baltimore, and . evi
dently was not Intended as a joke:
''Mayor Dahlman of tmaha, Bryan's
lieutenant, was bar today to learn th
sentiment of leading democrats toward
Bryan.' He talked with United States Ben.
a tors Rayner and Whyta. Th former said
he favored government ownership If It
could be proved feasible. Senator Whyt
was noncommittal...
"Dahlman desired to sea Governor War-
.field, but he was out of town. Th mayor
of Omaha wants th democratic ticket to
be Bryan and Warneld. He says Warfleld
is liked la th west. He stands with tha
people, and they a re better acquainted with
hire In th west than any other eastern
man who eould be named."
Mr. Bryan haa many lieutenants, and th
cowboy mayor of Omaha may be on of
them. It Is to be doubted, however. If he
la authorised to be scouring th country
for a running mat for Mr, Bryan, or If
any suggestions on th subject volunteered
by him will amount to a pinch of snuff
with th real leaders of th democratic
party. Th matter la too Important to b
Intrusted to small fry, or taken up out of
season even by those competent to deal
mith It.
Governor Warfleld Is an able and at
tractive man, and when It waa announoed
that Mr. Bryan had broadened under travel
and was now "sane and safe," th sugges

on a ticket with th Nsbraakan seemed not

Rosewater and earnestly desired his nomi
nation for United States senator, It can
very cheerfully support Norris Brown, th
successful candidal for the nomination.
Brown Is an able and popular man and haa
made a good record as attorney general.
He is also a poor man and cannot be
suspected of buying the senatorial nomina
tion. He will make a fit associate for our,
other young senator, Elmer Burkett, and
we feel sure will represent Nebraska In "a
creditable and perhaps brilliant manner.
Weeping Water Herald: Wanted. . two
up-i.'od candidates for representative, not In
a trust, not affiliated with railroads, with
good reputation that will bear newspaper
Investigation. Apply to chairman repub
lican county central committee, or attend
th county convention and bring reference.
Schuyler Free Lanes: The delegation of
democrats which went from Nebraska' to
welcome Bryan at New Tork certainly were
written up In ridiculous style sufficient to
please the rankest seeker after notoriety in
the bunch. We read and then wonder If
Mr. Bryan was proud of the "home folks."
Perhaps it waa unjust?
FTemont Tribune: An Omaha statesman
conceived the plan of standing for a legis
lative nomination on the platform that he
would not abide by the action of th re
publican stat convention In nominating a
senator, but that he would vote for an
Omaha man If elected. This statesman. It
Is noticed In th published results of the
primaries, did not pull through, which IS
evidence that political treachery Is below
par even in Omaha. There has been a good
deal said by the fustonlsts about what
Omaha was going to do to Norris Brown,
but Omaha knows If It begins a fight of
that kind It will have the stat on Its back
Ilk a thousand of bricks and the state
could play even with Omaha at every mark
In th road. Th fuslonlsts hav also nom
inated a candidal outside of Omaha. It Is
plain, therefor, that Omaha Is compelled
to be good, whatever its Instincts may be.
Schuyler Free Lane: Th Norris Brown
forces did not do a great Job when they
nominated J. A. Williams of Pierce, for
tha offlc of railroad commissioner. Wil
liams was on the delegation to' th republi
can stat convention front Fierce county
which was instructed for Rosewater for
senator and he had made It up with th
Brown forces to swing his delegation to
them at a critical time and In turn get
th nomination for railroad commissioner.
He told his delegation and appealed to
them, to do him the favor, and they did,
although the other delegate were sorry
afterwards when they realised what It all
meant, .But Williams may not realise on
his deal and h may be defeated, as h
should be. He Is a one-horse lawyer' of
Pierce who. was county judge in that re
publican county,,. but was defeated for re
election by a big majority, so It shows (hat
ma sianqing is noi ui. di si iiuum. z
Is mighty' poor timber for ' such an Im
portant position as railroad commissioner.
Friend Telegraph! Th Stat Journal is
able to notice evidence abroad In this
stat of hostility . towards th State unl
versity. In the past the people of this
stat hav poured money Into the State
university without stint or hindrance and
there has nothing been withheld from that
Institution which money would purchase.
After a trial of over thirty-seven years th
time haa arrived when the people ar be
ginning to desire something like adequate
returns for this outlay. Looking over th
grounds both at the campus and farm, It
la evident' that tha ground outside, on
which to erect buildings must be purchased
or the great work of sducatlon, as w
hav been abl to see It, at th university,
must soon cease. Ther are a few minds
at our university who have lent ton to It
as an educational Institution, but among
the. great mass who are drawing good
salaries th feeling has gone out ever th
state that th people were not receiving
adequate returns for the money expended.
Upon the regents of this Institution rests
the responsibility of weeding out those
who ar not up te standard and who ar
not lending anything towards the good
standing of . this Institution beyond Jthat
of drawing their salaries and aiding to
soak up the money paid in taxes.

the tortures of hades, about the year
1U00, with itching on my ecalp and

to break out on my hands. Then it
broke out on my limbs. 1 was advised
to use salt and water, which I did, to

then told hun I would go and see a phy
sician in Erie.:. The reply was -that I
could go- anywhere, but a rope of
eczema like mine could not be cured;
that 1 was too old (80). J went to an
eminent doctor in the city of Erie and
treated with him for six months, with
like reei Jts. I had read of the Cu
ticura Remedies often. J was strongly
tempted to give, them a trial, so l sent
for the Cutirure 8oap, Ointment, and
Resolvent and contuiued taking the
Hceolvent until I bad taken six buttles,
stopping it to take the Fills. I was now
getting better. J took two baths a day,
and at night I let tho Uthrr of the 8p
dry on. I used the Gintmuit with
great effect after washing in- warm
water, to stop the Jtchiug at once. I
am now cured.
