Ttorwrt .tr rrrruK corn.:.
President Roosevelt's Harrlsburg
speech Is one of the moat important
public utterances he has made during
his admlnlstra '.Ion, because with two
years. and a fcilf of his term remain
ing, it is the best suggestion yet given
of his attitude towards living public
questions. The public well knows his
arduous struggle for a reformed indus
trial order culminating at the late
session of congress in the en
actment of measures for national
control 'of railroads and Important
Industries, but both those who
have supported and those who
have opposed him have felt a
growing interest in his plans for the
future. After pondering this speech
nefther the one class nor the other
will doubt that what has been achieved
is merely the beginning, and that he
will press with undiminished energy
for the extension of the same princi
ples in national administration and
legislation to many national abuses of
All this Indeed is Implied iu the
broad . fundamental ground which be
takes, that under the constitution In
herent power, outside of its specific
enumerations, vests in the national
government to deal with all cases
where the object Involved is beyond
the power of the several states and is
a power ordinarily exercised by sover
eign nations. But he specifically de
clares that as it was necessary, for the
national government to control the
great railroad corporations because
effective state control Is in the nature
of things Impossible, so it must control
"the work of all the great corporations
which directly or Indirectly do any in
terstate business' whatever, and -this in
cludes almost all of the great corpora
tions." In short, while he does not
disclose the details of his program by
listing the national industrial abuses
In the order in which national control
Is to be applied to them; he does indi
cate clearly that the fact that they are
of national or Interstate bcope brings
them within the purview of his policy.
The abuses which he will attack, it
is Inferable, are to be determined in
sound discretion and to be announced
at the opportune moment, but the
whole spirit of his declaration proves
that he will continue to press for sub
stantive legislation along this line, as
well as for rigorous enforcement for
all that is or will be written on the
The president is keenly aware, and
no one has more forcefully than he
stated the point, that the obstacle to
be overcome la the spirit of narrow
constitutional construction which
would make the national government
Impotent to deal with this paramount
need of our expanded national life.
That spirit wonld have barred the
way to every great national accom
plishment under the constitution, first
even to Its very adoption and then
to its Interpretation as the organ of a
real nationality, whether as regards a
sovereign government or as regards Its
own preservation against state seces
sion. , The - pressing problems today
are those that arise out of a stu
pendous national wealth so organized
and applied as to be totally beyond
the reach of state control and there
fore, unless controlled by the national
government, totally uncontrollable.
Timid, reactionary, narrow, nonpro
gressive spirits, as well as all the
great, selfish incorporated interests,
rallying around the ancient doctrine
of strict construction, practically stand
for a situation unremedied and grow
ing worse, opening wide the gates for
wild radicalism and furious fanati
cism. President Roosevelt, on the con
trary, meets the situation squarely on
the ground that the national power
is as great as the national need, and
with present specific application of the
power to acknowledged present evils.
Broadly speaking, it U the true Ameri
can doctrine, and the people will sup
port the president as they have, sup
ported him heretofore In carrying It
"EMPTY ARK Til KIR PBOVE&SIOXS."
The arraignment of the democratic
opposition in the addreba of Charles
E. Hughes, accepting his nomination
as candidate for governor on the
republican ticket in New York is
equally applicable to the fusion oppo
sition of Nebraska. Mr. Hughes says:
Vain la it for our opponents to parade
in the livery of virtue. Empty are their
professions and hollow then- declarations
' The fused democrats and populists
of Nebraska once had complete control
of all branches of our state govern
ment, but the record they made then
does not square with their professions
past or present.
The demo-pop candidates promised to
Increase the taxes of the railroads
when, as a matter of fact, the lowest
assessments placed on railroad prop
erty were put there by fusion assess
ment boards. ....
The demo-pop candidates talk about
abolishing free pass bribery when it is
notorious that not only was no anti
pass legislation enacted when they
were In control of the legislature, but
that uo auch revelry in free transpor
tation has taken place In the state
house before or after.
The demo-pop candidates talk about
railroad regulation and correction of
railroad abuses, but no state board of
transportation was made up of more
abject railroad tools than those in
stalled there aa a result of temporary
success of fusion In Nebraska.
Promises which the demo-pop can
didates are making today have been
made by them time and again only to
be repudiated or forgotten when the
opportunity to redeem them came.
They may "parade In the livery of
virtu. V . but the people caa see be
neath, the garb, and they may. make
promises of reform, but the people
will test their promises by their prac
tice and prefer to look to the character
of the man rather than any empty
MR. HL'UHKS' Alt a.PT4.T K.
Charles E. Hughes' address accept
ing the nomination for governor Is a
model, meeting candidly and pithily
the Issue. Confessing himself as a
lifelong republican and as one loyal
to the "principles and best traditions
of the party," Mr. Hihes flatly de
clares that the supreme Issue Is not
one of republican principles or of
democratic principles, nor of partisan
ship, but "the vital issue" of decent
government." And he responds to the
call for him with a simple pledge,
backed by his character, to act as gov
ernor on conscience and common sense.
This position, absolutely devoid of
cant and buncombe, offers the best
possible opportunity for the decent
citizenship of .New York.. It Is in
marked contrast with Hearslism, which
pretending to protest against bosstsm
is itself the most flagrant embodiment
of bosstsm, which, denouncing money
lh politics draws' its breath of life from
Inherited millions. Invested in political,
manipulation, and which in this con
test employs the grossest bargaining
as its chief tactics although crying out
against machine methods. Hughes as
governor "promises an honest adminis
tration. " Hearst's scheme to become
governor is dishonest In substance and
Upon the issue thus drawn in New
York the Interest of the whole country
will be centered In hardly less degree
than upon the event of the congres
sional election. It Is a test that will
tremendously affect the course of state
government in every state In the
Union, because there is everywhere
pressure of public conscience and
sanity for genuine loyalty in office.
On top of that, the verdict in the Em
pire state is bound to have Important,
perhaps decisive, consequences in the
field of national politics.
SHIPS ASP THK CAXAL.
The wisdom of the decision of the
government to increase the Panama ca
nal locks so as to accommodate vessels
1,000 feet In length Is vindicated by
the rapid enlargement of ocean-going
ships. New York has just awakened
to the fact that its harbor neither in
depth of water nor In dock facilities
will accommodate some of the vessels
now afloat and under construction.
The largest of those in commission,
though they enter the harbor, cannot
do so when full ladened. Others in
actual construction call for a muclt
deeper channel than the approach to
the New York harbor, compelling a
vast expenditure of money to meet ex
isting conditions of commerce and
While the 1,000-foot limit has not
yet been reached for ocean ships, the
two new Cunard steamships, Lustlania
and MaurctanJa, approach It and es
tablish the probability that H will be
reached possibly by the time the canal
is ready for use. It is at any rate cer
tain that the original lock limit would
then, or soon thereafter, be insuffi
cient. The change of plan, although
involving large Increase in first cost,
was not only necessary, but shows the
vast magnitude of the factors which
have to be taken into account in pro
jecting the historic work.
MAQOON FOR CVRA.
According to Washington advices,
it is practically settled that Charles
E. Magoon of Nebraska will succeed
Secretary Taft as civil and military
governor of Cuba during the trying
period of American occupation. That
Nebraska should be called upon to
furnish tie man of the hour Is no less
gratifying than that Nebraska should
be able to honor the requisition with
a man so well qualified by service and
experience to perform the delicate du
ties that go with the position.
Governor Magoon's rise to first rank
among our public men has been in
deed remarkable proof of his ability
to make the best of each succeeding
opportunity. As law officer for the
Division of Insular Affairs during and
following the Spanish-American war,
as member of the Panama commission
and governor of the ' canal zone, he
has come up to the full measure of
the requirements and was in line for
transfer to the governorship of the
Philippines. That the administration
should turn to him as the man to rely
upon at this critical point in the af
fairs of Cuba ia quite natural.
If, as governor of Cuba, Mr. Magoon
continues to exercise the good judg
ment and tact manifested during the
time he was at Panama in a similar
capacity, he is sure to gain new
prestige aa a public officer and rise
still higher In the public estimation.
The Lincoln Journal pretends that
there is no provision of law by which
the names of the convention nominees
for United States senator should be
placed upon the official ballot to be
voted at the coming election in No
vember. Two years ago the name of
Senator Bnrkett was placed on the
official ballot as the republican nomi
nee and the law has not been changed
since that time. If there Is any rea
son why this precedent should not be
followed this year we would like to
know what it Is.

lighting works in Council Bluffs are
owned and operated by the same cor

Demand for Labor and ludoatrlal
Products Exceeds Supply.
St. Louis Oloba-DemocraL
Cries for workers on the farms are
arising in most of the states betweet
Illinois and the Rocky mountains. Loud
demands are being made In many Quar
ters, manufacturing and agricultural, for
additional cars with which to move
freight. The railways say they have or
dered the additional cara, but that the
manufacturers cannot supply them as
fast as they want them. The railroads
also complain because the mills cannot till
orders quick enough for steel rails, for
locomotives and for other equipments.
In all parts of the country, and In many
ltnea of activity, demand Is far ahead of
supply. Nobody now alive ever remem
bers such a general shortage In labor and
in the products of labor as there are tu
the United States today. Over a million
of Immigrants come . into the country
every year, thus heavily reinforcing tllo
Increase produced by the excess of birth
over deaths. The country is growing in
population with great speed. Our manu
facturers are increasing their facilities
of production as fast as they can. Yet
they cannot keep up with the orders for
commodities. And the supply of workers
Is so far short of the .needs in the agri
cultural regions and in the manufacturing
centers that a premium is being placed
This explains why It Is that the import
ers are so busy these days. The amount
of foreign jnerchandise in 1S0 passed
the $1,100,000,000 mark. In 1st th;y
were only $794,000,000. There are two
reasons for the Increase In Imports. Pros
perity makes the American people Increase
their purchases. The home supply being
Inadequate to meet the home demand,
Americans have to go outside to get many
of the things that tbey want. It is evi
dent from the returna thus far for the
fiscal year which began with July that
the importation which the government
will report for the twelvemonth ending
with June next will far surpass that for
the fiscal year recently ended. It would
be more agreeable to the masses of Amer
icans to see all these goods supplied by
the home producer, but this is Impossible
under the present "vast increase in the
demand. American exports are growing
much faster than Imports, but the in
crease In each shows that our trade and
social relations with the rest of the worli
are expanding si a pace that nobody
would bave dreamed of as recently even

sentiment of Pennsylvania newspapers
respecting the state capitsl building which
was dedicated with elaborate ceremonies
rectntly. The building is particularly
gorgeous in Interior finish and furnishing,
requiring superlatives adequately to de
scribe. The length of the building Is KS
feet. Its brenth 254 feet. The height from
the ground floor ti the top of the allegori
cal figure sui mounting the dome Is 292
feet. The arta of the building Is M.27S
squsre feet, or 2.i0 square feet larger
than ft. Paul's Cathedral, In London. In
Its construction 4O.0Ot separate pieces of
granite were used, weighing front one to
thirty-five tons each. Thrte are thirty,
two monoliths In the structure, weighing
thirty-five tot:s each. A total of more than
4OO.0W) cubic feet of granite was used en
the exterior of the hulU'lng alone. The
building covers a trifle more than two
acres of ground, ami If a man walked
around the completed structure, following
all the embrasures and offsets, he would
go half a mile before reaching his starting
point. The weight of the dome is 12,.WA
pounds. The entire cost of the structure
and Its furniture Is over thirteen million
Architecturally described, the capltol
consists of a main building, with ImpoVmg
facades and (wo wings. One enters by a
flight of wide stone steps through the
bronse doors to the rotunda. Opposite the
entrance is a broad marble staircase, with
elaborate balustrades and massive electric
light fixtures of bronze. Overhead Is the
dome. 20 feet above the tiled floor. Done
In gold, cream and robin's egg blue, the
dome displays a wealth of color, softened
by the light that finds Its way through
amber colored windows. By an arrange
ment of electric lights the effect of the
combination of colors Is heightened at
On the first floor are the. house and
senate caucus room. The entrances to the
senate and house are from galleries on
the second floor. In the senate chamber,
which Is SO by 95 feet In slxe, the, colors
predominating are green and gold. From
the walla at Intervals four dorto pilasters,
fluted In gold, rise on each side from a
marble wainscoting. The celling Is ribbed
into curved recesses, gilded In quaint de
signs. Six Immense gilded chandeliers sus
pended by massive chains provide the
The governor's rooms are the finest In
the capltol. The governor's prh-te office
Is a room 30 by 33 feet, wainscoted to a
height of 11 feet In panelled oak, carved
In rich and costly design. The mantel Is
of African marble, the shelf supported by
fan caryatides. The reception room Is also
of panelled oak. The other floors In the
mnln building and wings are finished In a
dull Indian red and marble wainscoting,
relieved at Intervals by white Vermont
marble columns snd pilasters. On the
upper floors are the various working de
partments of the state government. The
style of architecture is Roman csrlnthlan.
In Its detail the house Is Corinthian, the
As one looks up to the massive dome the
following Inscription catches the eye:
There may be room for such a holy ex
periment, and my Ood will make it the
seed of a nation, thnt an example may
be set up to the nations, that we may do
the thing that Is truly wise and Just.
The words are by William Penn.
When the building was formally opened
to the public a few weeks ago the claim
was made, apparently on authority, that
the cost was slightly tinder the 14,000,000
appropriated and a small unexpended bnl
ance would be. turned back Into the stote
treasury. Much agreeable surprise was ex
pressed and public congratulation wr.s gen
eral. Here la a magnificent building, a
credit and an honor to the state, and com
pleted for less than the amount appr.-v
prlated. Pennaylvanians rejoiced and
pointed to the new capltol as proof of the
ability of the state to put tip a public
building without extravagance and scandal.
These rejoicings were short-lived. State
Treasurer Berry, an Independent, politic
ally, probed into the accounts and dis
covered that the bare walls and roof of the
building cost a trifle less than lt.00n.C00, the
finishings and furniture cost over I9.ooo.noo.
Mr. Berry's figures were subsequently af
firmed by Governor Pennypacker. I'ncom.
pleted contracts and other claims. It Is
estimated, will carry the total to $1S,00P,0W.
"The sum spent In furnishing," says the
Philadelphia Press, "Is sheer, unmitigated
extravagance. It Is no ttnus-.inl thing when
an expenditure has to be m1e upon
grounds for the Items to mount, but In
this case nothing has been spent In this
way. To spend $4,851,425.27 (plus whatever
share may be In 'doubtful' Items) In fur
nishing a building of this size throws the
burden of proof on all concerned to prove
there was neither extravagance nor graft.
They may prove this. The presumption Is
against them until it is proved. The
burden of proof rests on them.
"This extravagance has been caused by
three great factors.
"1. The sum of $1.531,g5C.20 for flies Is nut
of all proportion more than should have
been expended for such a purpose on file
with bronse fittings.
"t. In a day when all corporations furnish
their offices with machine made furniture,
save as special desks maye made for a
few principal officers, the state has been
charged with hund-made furniture for the
entire capltol. Whether value has been
received or not remains to be seen and
awaits Investigation. But it Is clear that It
is sheer extravagance to fill a great build
ing with hand-made furniture manifold
greater In cost than the furniture whlih
the taxpayers who foot the bills dully use
In their own offices and corporations.
"3. The sum spent for chandeliers, whl h
reaches In all $2,000,000, is another wholly
unjustifiable expenditure. No one who has
seen the elaborate, some times beautiful
and some times ugly chandeliers, but will
see that $2,000,000 ceuld be spent on them.
None the less, It Is wholly unjustifiable.
Hsd these items been adequately handled
the capltol would have been furnished for
'somewhere between $ljtt).00 and $3,000,ou.
The remaining expenditure deserves rigid
Investigation. The possible margatn for
undue profit, 'Inside profit," or downright
graft, is about $2,000,000."

Rallaar of Interstate Commission Pro
Newspapers are Interested In a ridiculous
ruling made by the Interstate Commerce
commission. This forbids the exchange of
newspaper advertising space for railroad
transportation, even when both are given
at the full rates. The great newspapers
will probably welcome the ruling, as It will
compel the railroads to pay In cash for all
their publicity; but thousands - of little
newspapers scattered throughout the coun
try, which have always exchanged adver
tising space at regular rates for railroad
transportation, will rebel against the ruling
of the commission. AH these papers) have
a fixed price for their advertising space,
and It has been the custom for them to ex
change this rpnee not only for rnllroad
transportation, hut for duebtlls on hotels
and merchandise account When the great
annual gatherings of the National Editorial
association are held, hundreds of the dele-s-ntei
nav for their transportation to the
place of the convention by an exchange of '
space at regular rate What there Is un
fair or In the way of, discrimination In thla
Is beyond comprehension. Th newspapers
have something to sell, and so have the
railroads. Newspapers could pursue the
roundabout course of selling space to the
railroads, receiving checks or cssh In pay
ment, and turning the money hack Into the
railroad office for tickets; but this circum
locution Is unnecessary when Interchangea
ble values or commodities are Involved.
The ruling of the Interstate Commerce
commission, therefore. Is utterly Indefensi
ble. We hsve no doubt that the new su
pers will voice their opinion of the matter
In a way that will be heard at Washington
before the next session of congress.

WHAT DOK8 IT MATTER.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
It matters llttlo where I was brn.
Or If my parents were rich or poor.
Whether they shrank from the cold
Or walked In the prido of wealth secure:
But whether I live an honest nisn.
And hold my Integrity firm lu my,
I tell you, my brother, as plain us I can.
It matters muchl
It matters little how long I stay
la. a world of sorrow, sin and care;
Whether In youth I am called away.
Or live till my bonea of flesli are bar;
But whether I do the best I can
To soften the weight of adversity a
On the faded cheek of my fellow-man,
t It matters much:.
It matter's little where be my grave.
If on the land, or in the sea:
By purling brook, 'neath stormy wave.
It matters little or nought to me;
But whether the ang.-l of death comes
And marks my brow with a loving
As one that shall wear the victor's crown, .
It matters much!
