In his first public address tn the Ne
braska campaign last week, Senator
Burkett, after reviewing the position
of the republican party on national
questions and recounting the achieve
ments of the present republican con
gress, came down to the aute isaues
with some pertinent advice to legisla
tive candidates seeking republican
support Senator Burkett declared:
Every republican candidate is pledged,
and Jf he Isn't he ought to go on me
stump somewhere at once and pledge him
self to carry out the republican state plat
form. When the republican party writes
a platform It is to be carried out and no
man has any bualneas running on the
ticket If he lan't Intending to carry out
his party's platform. One of the planks
In that platform declares for an antl-paai
law, and the people expect It to be car
ried out. I say the people expert It be
cause It is In a republican platform. It
was in a democratic platform some years
ago when they were In control of state
affairs, but they neither enacted the' law
hor stopped riding on paaaes. But I want
to say here and now that the man Is a
disloyal republican who will rdn on that
platform this fall and does not vote and
work for its enactment Into law this win
In these declarations Senator Burk
ett ia simply reiterating what The Bee
has already said, namely, that every
candidate for the legislature is coming
before the people with the distinct and
specific promises of legislation within
states lines, formulated by the last re
publican convention in the state plat
form which it promulgated. The op
position is trying its best to make peo
ple believe that the republican plat
form pledges do not count for any
thing, and that they are repudiated
by the candidates who axe running for
the legislature, the idea which they
are trying to spread being that the
only way to get the reforms demanded
is by electing a democratic legislature.
It behooves the republican legisla
tive candidates, therefore, to put a
stop to this Impeachment In the most
effective way by taking a stand upon
every plank ot the state platform
whose redemption requires legislative
action. If there is any platform re
pudiation to be lone in Nebraska this
year It should be left for the demo
crats to do. Republicans have every
thing to gain and nothing to lose by
standing up in the open and taking the
people fully Into their confidence.
TBK PIVOT Ah CAMPAlOy ISSUE.
Two opportunities come for the ef
fective expression of the popular will
as to national government, the na
tional election when a president Is
chosen for a term ot four years and
at the same time a house of repre
sentatives for the first two years of
that term, and a national election In
which only a house is chosen for the
last two years of the presidential term.
We are now within six weeks of the
latter election. Two years ago, by a
majority 'which constituted the most
unmistakable expression ever made by
the , people; Theodore Roosevelt was
elected president on a definite 'pro
gram and with him a republican con
gress to assist him therein for two
years. The record, therefore, has been
made up, and it is up to the people to
say now whether they desire to check
mate him, by electing an opposition
party majority in congress, in the pro
gram they then commissioned him to
This issue was presented by Presi
dent Roosevelt himself directly and
with all possible force at the threshold
of the campaign, and indeed it arose
out of the nature of things. . For the
very essence of the purpose of the con
stitution is to afford opportunity, in
the middle of the presidential term for
national expression if the people de
sire to thwart the chief executive,
either because he baa proved recreant
to trust or because, having proved
faithful, they have changed their will
during the first two years of his term.
With the campaign approaching its
cloae the fact Is thrown more and more
Into bold relief that the great mass of
the people. Irrespective of party, have
In no wise changed, their mind as to
the policies which they so signally en
dorsed by President Roosevelt's elec
tion two years sgo, except It be that
they are even more firmly resolved
upon them now, and that they sin
cerely and enthusiastically approve his
fidelity and success in carrying out
these policies. Even partisan opposi
tion does not dare to meet the Issue,
but Its attitude from the beginning up
to this moment has been evasive and
directed not to the real business lit
hand, which ia choice of a congress to
sustain the president the next two
years, but to manufacture political
capital for use in the presidential elec
tion two years hence, demonstrating
that It would abuse power, if it could
get it, for the same purpose in the
meantime. Its chosen leader, who has
lately come upon the scene, has not
mended matters, but dodges the real
Issue of Immediate public business by
explottlpg national ownership of rail
roads and a hodgepodge of other Im
practical questions, the only possible
effect ot thrusting which forward doni
Inantly In the next congress would be
to paralyse Theodore Roosevelt's lead
ership in the great practical work he
has In hand.
President Roosevelt, then, and his
program, with the whole popular
movement for which they stand, are
the issue, and It only remains' for all
who have had part In that movement,
and who In their hearts feel that It
should go on' to further success and
not be either hampered or stopped by
opposition obstructions, to act upon
patriotic conviction In the congres
sional election now so near at hand.
Candidate Shallenberger has the au
dacity on the stump to question the
sincerity of the republican party On Its
stand against free pass evils and rail
way rate abuses. In view of the fact
that Mr, Shallenberger was made the
nominee on the democratic state, ticket
over Mr. Berge only by the active aid
of the railroad political agenta there
ia a great dear more ground for ques
tioning the sincerity of Mr. Shallen-berger.

The accepted estimates of Iron pro
duction for the current year make the
! world's total 67.700,000 tons, to which
'the United States contrlbutfs 25,300,-
000 tons. The unprecedented record
I has thus been made of almost exactly
doubling the world's output In eleven
years, It having amounted to 28,665,
945 tons In 1895
As iron Is universally recognized aa
the great basic material, the fluctua
tions of whose use are the most accu
rate index of general Industrial condi
tions, It signally appears that we are
In the midst of a period of unexampled
world-wide activity and expansion. But
It must afford a clearer conception of
the extraordinary conditions in the
United States when it Is remembered
that the doubling of the world's iron
product has been possible only by the
trebling of the iron product of the
United States during the same period,
It having Increased more than twice as
much as the world's total only half a
The significant fact appears in cur
rent home market reports that the
supply of pig Iron is nevertheless fall

ing prices for delivery three and six

the steel and cognate industries which

tically contracted that far In advance,

THE ATLANTA JuOB.
The mob outbreak against .negroes
in Atlanta Is in some respects worse
than the typical southern lynching, ot
which the victim Is known or sus
pected to be guilty of a specific crime.
The horror ot the offense in such case
often annuls the self-restraint and
balance even ot many citizens whose
better Judgment condemns overthrow
of law and order.
But the Atlanta outrage appears to
be the culmination of long continued
Insensate and vicious Incitement to
race prejudice which could tend only
to stir up the dangerous elements ot
the community to blind violence
against negro victims, whether inno
cent or guilty. The appeals which
have been systematically made-in the
sensational local press, a sample of
which was the standing offer of a
money reward 'for negro lynching in
the contingency that a certain crime
Ehould be committed, was the criminal
preparation for Indiscriminate outrage
and suspension of law. ' ,
There has been some ground the
last year or two for hope that the
anti-negro mob spirit was beginning to
fall away, so that at no distant time
Innocent blacks as well as whites might
have in the south the reasonable and
Just protection of the law, backed by
a law-abiding public sentiment; The
offense of the Atlanta outbreak con
sists not only in the heinous wrong to
Its immediate victims, but also in the
stimulus it is likely to Impart to evil
passion and practice wherever the two
races in large numbers live side by
The return to steamboat traffic on
the Missouri river has been hailed at
Kansas City "with a blowing of whis
tles, the clanging of bells, and the glad
acclaim of thousands of persons gath
ered at the river shore" to witness the
docking of the first freight-laden
steamer to arrive after a lapse of more
than a decade. And the promise is
made that regular traffic will be in
stituted on the river between St. Louis
and Kansas City Just as soon as suit
able boats can be obtained. As soon
as Kansas City yearns for more worlds
to conquer if it will extend its river
freight line up the Missouri to Omaha
we will guarantee to loan that siren
whistle and make a requisition on Fort
Crook for a salute of thirteen guns.
The land frauds worked through the
Nebraska .land offices seem to have
reached out beyond the confines of
this state, as witness the arrests made
in Chicago for promoting fake entries
by civil war veterans and their
widows. There is no question but that
a gigantic conspiracy was concocted to
get possession of large tracts of Un
cle Sam's public domain in this state
without complying with the laws and
no discrimination ehould be made in
ferreting out and punishing all the
parties to such offences who went into
the game with their eyes open and
knew what shady work they were en
It the well defined rumors In cir
culation are correct, the democratic
organ will do well to go slow about
parading Judge Graves as "a Judge
whose principles lead him to refuse
the railroad pass." Will it withdraw
Its support of him as the democratic
nominee for congress in the Third dis
trict should it be shown that he has
been riding on railroad passes since
he mounted the bench ?
Before digging into the alleged eva
sions ot the Inheritance tax law for
the purpose of manufacturing political
capital, our democratic friends should

Mob Sale In Georfla,
The Atlanta outbreak almost inclines one
to doubt the value of civilisation. It makes
one ashamed of Its weakness aa a restrain
ing power. It should make the south
ashamed of a race prejudice so bitter and
undlscrlmlnstlna; that guiltless persons may
be killed and maimed Just because they be
long to the negro race. It Is a disgrace to
Atlanta. It is a disgrace to the militia that
when it was called upon to restore law and
order it should have, sympathised with
mob murder. It will be a disgrace to the
whole state of Georgia if the leaders of the
uprising are not arrested and punished
APOTHEOSIS OF THE CORNCOB.
Glorious Uplift Comings to an Homble
' Secretary Wilson's discovery of greet
commercial and financial possibilities in
the hitherto humble and neglected corn cob
will send n thrill of gratitude from one end
of the country to the other. It is pleasant
enough to kaow that alcohol, can be ex
tracted from corn cobs. That of Itself
would make a bulletin of general Joy. Fut
when Secretary Wilson assures us that the i
llauor can be produced at a cost not ex
ceeding S cents per gallon, thus bringing
the once expensive Jag within reach of the
most attenuated purse, we can see the
aurora borealls corning our way with a
speed of at least a million miles a second.
What Secretary Wilson says about a
slump In the prle of canned corn In con
sequence of this .astounding revelation, we
confess, does not Knncern us. The price of
canned corn Is' lefts'' than nothing in' our
philosophy. Bvlt Vheh the secretary slnga
to us of l-cent.Xflsky. then he fills a large
and yawning eau- with ecstasy. He de
scribes a boon for which countless mil
lions have ' been waiting long. . He puts
luxury within reach of the very humblest
citlsen. He opens up a vista of wet picnics,
of Joyous husking bees and harvest homes,
of Christmas merry-making and of fireside
delights. . He brings a message of Incal
culable Import to the thirsty and the groan
But Secretary Wilson Is Just a little bit
mistaken when he ears that the corn cob
has never been of any use to man. There
is not a real farmer In the land who will
endorse the allegation. Among all toora
looral circles the corn cob has long been
a solace and a friend, ft makes good Arcs,
it serves to -cork stone Jugs and keep the
odor in, one makes serviceable pipes of It
and in various other ways It contributes
to the comfort and the happiness of the
generation. Of course, the secretary's dis
covery overshadows all these minor consid
erations. It will not do, however, to forget
the corn cob altogether. We owe It much
for valuable uses In the past ,
MR. BRVAVS . COME DOWN.
Bow the Peerless One Shifts Sail to
Minneapolis Journal. .
Mr. Bryan's . fantastic dual, state and
national, ownership of railroads has been
before the. public less than two weeks,
but in that short time the peerless one
has received an impression that it la purely
his own doctrine and not to be forced on
the democratic party.
When he invaded Kentucky, Mr. Bryan
read a carefully prepared statement' in re
gard to the railroad question which showed
that he had been touched by the unpopular
reception of his plan. He doea not expect
It to go in the platform unlesa all the demo
crats want it. Thle ia very fortunate for
the democratic party, for If they once put
It In their platform Mr. Bryan could be
depended upon to see that It did not come
out again, no matter how Impracticable it
might appear to be. - Free silver waa In
serted In the platform' of 1S96 and Mr.
Bryan kept It there in 1000. He wovjld not
let go of the L"sue, though he had been de
cisively beaten upop it and the country
had declared aa lpisdly as It could that It
preferred the single 'gold standard. Every
argument that mortal men could voice was
used to get Mr. Bryan to conaent to the j
dropping of free silver. His Anal word j
on that question was that the democrats
might leave it out of their platform If they I
liked, but they should. In that event, leave
his name off their ticket. This was the
sort of free voice the democrats had .in
their platform making in 19u0.
In 1904 Mr. Bryan went to St. Louis
and foOght for three days against drop
ping tree silver from the platform. He
suctseded Anally' in compelling the con
vention to stultify Itself by making no
allusion to the money question. In 1908
Mr. Bryan returned from a trip around
the world and, like Christian in "The Pil
grim's Progress," dropped his burden. The
weight ot free silver rolled from hi
shoulders; He parted with It in almost
the aame words proposed by the con
vention two years before and stopped by
him. This shows democrats the danger
of putting any fantaatlc Bryan doctrines
in their platform while he lives, for he
will never let them be taken out again
until the party has been churned tn the
mire of defeat. Then he will rise up with
another world-aurprialng issue to take the
dead one's place.
Mr. Bryan has an aphorism that no Issue
la settled until it's settled right. Mr.
Bryan Is the great Issue In the democratic
party, and the party will never have any
peace until Mr. Bryan la settled right and
good and plenty, ' ,

In the recent sudden death of F.dward
Bnsewater, founder, proprietor and editor
of The Omaha Bee, Nebraska lost one of
her most useful and eminent rltlsens, a
man who had made his beneAclnl force and
Influence felt throughout the land. This
successful journalist wss distinguished by
ability, integrity and Independence of char,
acter. He had so won the confidence ef
the people that many Important offices had
been bestowed on him, and he lately made
an excellent showing in sn exciting con
test for the United States senatorshlp. In
all causes Involving the public weal Mr.
Bosewater was found on the right side. He
was a splendid specimen of the cltisen of
foreign birth who makes his way up from
poverty to success snd honor, and who t(
more truly American than are the great
majority of those born within our borders.

Nebraska's Boanerges Edward Rose
water silently, peacefully passed sway on
the morning of August's closing day. His
passing was as he would have wished he
died In harness. His life was strenuous,
full of Aght and daring. He rcse from noth
ing to be the most Influential character
of the great weat.
Born In obscurity and reared in distress,
he leaves behind him a name Indelibly
branded on American progress. Edwnrd
Rosewater was a grand character, he was
a great Journalist, a born politician of the
nobler qualities, a qualified leader of men,
and yet the ungrateful state for which he
had done so much refused him the nomina
tion for a dinky United States senatorshlp.
He'd have adorned the office and showered
glory on the commonwealth.
Never before wss fate more inscrutable.
Our laat conversation with Edward Rose
water was at the atate convention at Lin
coln. There he was in the thick of the
Aght, cool as a cucumber, and masterful
as a battle-scarred general.
Edward Rosewater was no bigot or hypo
critehe was broad-minded and libers!. He
was as honest as he was fearless, hie
memory will never die, and his life Is an
example of industry, courage, energy and
individuality wholly unmatched In Ne.
Man of Ttrelesa Industry.
The turmoil and animosities of an aggres
sive life end at the grave, and the most
bitter enemies of Edward Rosewater
gathered around his bier remembered
him only with kindly feelings. Few who
have lived within the state for the last
quarter of a century have left a deeper
Impress on Nebraska's history. A man of
tireless Industry, he was ever at work In
the newspaper field, in politics or In busi
ness, and never took time for a vacation
until the summons came for a Anal rest,
which came when he should have been In
the full vigor of msnhood.
Made Nebraska Famous.
Mr. Rosewater made Nebraska famous.
His newspaper 'and his utterances were
copied In all parts of the country to the
profit of Nebraskans. He, like the il
lustrious' Oreeley, made the mistake of his
life when he entered the political arena. A
great newspaper man can not become a
great polltlcisn. A newspaper of modern
times must be fearless and honest. A
politician need not be either. We regret
his sudden death and mourn his loss as a
newspaper man and truly hope his mantle
may fall upon as honest and fearless
shoulders as It has covered all these years,
while Nebraska was forging to the front
under men of such Integrity and righteous
valour. 1 ' " ' :
A Great Editor Gone.
' The Fourth Estate.
The late Edward Rosewater, though
born in Bohemia, was a remarkable type
of the self-made American. Starting with
no' capital but brains, pluck and energy,
his history was that of many another lad
similarly endowed. He had small advan
tages In the way of formal education in
early life, but he was a student to the
end of his days. He was fond of languages.
German and Hebrew he acquired In his
early boyhood and a few years In this
country gave him a command of English
such aa any native American might well
envy him. Later he learned French and
he had a reading knowledge of Italian.
The building up of a large newspaper
property and years of unAagglng activity
In politics would so have absorbed the
energies of most men as to leave llttlt
time for miscellaneous reading. But Mr
Rosewater was of a class of men of affairs
who are also booklovers. His appetite for
historical and political works was In
satiable, nor did he neglect higher
Material success rewarded him but the
fortune that Included The Omaha Bee ts
not the greatest legacy he bequeaths to
his children. The example of well-directed
and long-sustainVd Industry and ot love of
knowledge for Its own sake are more
precious than anything that can be reck
oned in dollars.
And better even than these was the
patriotism of the man. He Joved his coun
try flrst, his state and city next. It was
not a patriotism of mere professions. Mr.
Rosewater was inspired by his true public
spirit, and he gave freely of his means,
his .time and his talent for public objects.
That he ahould receive honors waa natural,
yet. no one believed that be sought office
for its own sake.
