Vice President Fairbanks tn his
opening address In Jowa preKscd
home, the point tliat ' the practice'
effect of a democratic house would be
fo arraj one branch of I he next con
gress against the president and
thereby, effectually check any con
Mntctlve legislation." It becomes
clearer every day as the ' campaign
approaches lis dose .that the opposi
tion efforts are mainly concentrated in
Ihe congressional districts. Nor are
competent observers insensible to the
probability that the democrats , will
gain not a few districts which they
lost in the flood tide of Roosevelt's
(popularity two years ago, when his
personality was more o'jviously In the
election to the general comprehension
than It can be in the present case, al
though in reality his leadership Is now
Involved hardly less than It was then.
Moreover, the republicans nre con
fronted, ns a party rarely has been,
with the peril of over-confidence.
Vice President Fairbanks' warning
that It Is possible, though not prob
able, for the republican majority In
the house to be converted Into a ma
jority for the opposition, is therefore
timely and ought to Impress every
voter, of whatever customary party as
sociation heretofore, who is in sym
pathy with President Roosevelt and
wants his policy efficiently sustained
and developed throughout the last
two years of his term. Even a notable
opposition gain, although the republi
can house majority were not wholly
wiped out, might have a disturbing
effect, for it would stimulate partisan
obstruction among all elements hos
tile to the president, and would give
plausibility to argument that the peo
ple were turning from their previous
attitudes on vital Issues'.
Not only are the Important results
that have been secured under the
Roosevelt leadership to be safe
guarded, but he has made it plain
l.iat his program is progressive and
that he will press forward along the
tame line during the next congress. A
friendly and co-operative house will
bo admitted by every Intelligent voter
to be indispensable for either pur
pose. In short, the public Interest
that has towered above all others
since Theodore Roosevelt came to the
presidency s now actually resubmitted
to the people in the several congres
sional districts, and It Is imperative
that the people shall thoroughly ap
preciate this fact and act upon it in the

. Omaha is Improving materially In
many directions, biit It is still sadly
deficient in the matter of first-class
hotel accommodations for visitors and
the traveling public. Omaha's hotel
facilities have not Improved to an ex
tent worth mentioning since the Trans
mlBsissippi exposition, although the
demand upon our hotels have been
steadily and rapidly Increasing.
Without disparaging the hotels that
we now have, which are fairly good in
their way, it is not to be gainsaid
that hundreds of thousands of people
pass through Omaha without stopping
or cut their stay here short every
year because they cannot get modern
hotel accommodations equal to those
afforded by other cities no larger than
Omaha, notwithstanding their willing
ness to pay for them.
The damage Omaha is constantly
suffering by reason of its hotel defi
ciencies Is such as to make the matter
of promoting a first-class hotel project
one of public concern that should have
the serious attention of our Commer
cial club, Real Estate exchange, Ak-Sar-Ben
governors and other business
organisations. It would be worth hun
dreds of thousands of dollars to the
business Interests of Omaha to have
this long felt want satisfied without
At the best it would take a year and
a half or two years to finance and
erect such a fireproof hotel as alone
would meet requirements. Our enter

It for the good name of our city.

that their stocks have been exhausted.
This condition is deplorable if true.
At the very outset it is a reflection on
Omaha as a law-abiding community.
The fact that an atrocious murder has
been committed and a number of rob
beries reported is not to be pleaded as
Justifying i a wholesale resort to the

A little reflection will convince any
one how indefensible this Is tn a civil
ized community. The greatest danger
lies in the unfamlllarity of the average
man or woman with firearms and their
uses. A person who is not accustomed
to using a plBtol will hardly be able to
make proper use of it as a weapon in
a. moment , of . emergency.. Under the
excitement-of an apprehended attack
such a person becomes really; more
dangerous than the admitted criminal.!
The hysterical fear that leads a citizen
to arm himself will people the streets
with imaginary footpads and give rise
to a double danger of indiscriminate
So far Omaha has escaped a tragedy
that Is likely to result from the bad
habit of carrying pistols on the per
son, but this does not guaranty Im
munity. The far safer course for citi
zens to puiBue is to adopt ordinary
precautions and lend' to the efforts of
the properly constituted authorities
such assistance as they may to pre
serve order. Omaha's police force
may be inadequate in numbers, but
armed citizens are not likely to add
to the safety of life and property.
The Bee is In receipt of a pamphlet
issued by the executive council of
Iowa giving in detail the assessed val
uation of railroads, railroad equipment
and express companies' property in
the Hawkeye state. This pamphlet
places in convenient form for refer
ence the itemized figures of assessment
of the different railroads taxed in Iowa
and their reported earnings, operating
expenses and earnings within the state
of Iowa for ten years! The last men
tioned table shows among other things
that the taxes on the Burlington road
have been increased from $174,556 in
1897 to $308,106 in 1906; the taxes
on the Northwestern road from $231,
S53 in 1897 to $401,962 in 1906, and
on other roads In greater or less pro
portion according as their mileage la
likewise increased. In Nebraska in

The enterprise of the Union Pacific
in redeeming Its long overdue promise
of a new headquarters building for
Omaha is to be generally commended,
although great- diversity of opinion
prevails as to the wisdom of the se

which it Is to be loc ated. Ordinarily
it would have been much more to the
advantage of Omaha as a city and the
convenience of people having business
in the railroad offiies to have had the
headquarters located upon a sightly
corner in the heart of the business dis
trict. It Ih usually better for a city to
mass Its pretentious structures in the
center rather than to scatter them at
a distance from one another. The best
Is always the cheapest In the long run,
and if the departure from main thor
oughfares in selecting a headquarters
site Is pronvpted simply by a desire to
save a little money, the action will
probably be regretted later.

had to wait months to get their

K vents of the past week are decidedly en
murrains for supporters of Hughes. The
hitter haa Miown himself a auperb cam
paigner, sui prising veteran spellbinders by
his Incisive speeches and impressive sin

the corporation guns by showing the latter
to be the head and front of a corporation
trust, as well as a tax-doda;er. t'p-state
democrats are .trooping around the stand
ard of Hughes, and republicans are har
monious, aggressive and confident.
What la left of tha democratic party Is
rent by factional squabbles. The activity
of Hearst's Independence leagues tn de
manding a divlnlon of the spoils caused
party rebellions in RufTaln and Brooklyn.

argument of Hearst and his followers
against Hughes. The latter affectively
silenced that charge by showing up Hearst
aa the head and front of a corporation
trust, as well as a tax-dodger. The cha-ge
la not a campaign assertion. It la a mat
ter of official record and la substantiated
by letter of Hearst's attorneys. All the
Hearst papers are corporate properties. A
holding company owned by Hearst Is tha
Star company of New Jersey, which. In
turn, holds the stock of the New York
American Publishing company, the New
Tork Evening Journal Publishing company
and Das Morgen Journel. The first of these
three publishes Mr. Hearst's morning pa
per, the American: the second hla evening
paper, and the third publishes the German
edition of hla morning; paper.
The official home of the Btar company Is
also the official home of from l.tflO to 2.000
corporations, many of them the biggest and
most powerful trusts In the United States.
The Star company la housed In the offices
of the Corporation Trust company of New

The Corporation Trust company of New
Jersey, which shelters Mr. Hearst's holding
company, was made famous during the ex

In view of Mr. Hearst's sworn statement
In the Werner libel suit, which waa re
ferred to by Mr. Hughes In one of his re
cent speeches, that he was not the owner
or publisher of a newspaper, a letter writ
ten by his attorney, Clarence J. Shearn,
and attorney for the Star company and its
subsidiaries, on February 6, 1904, Is pe
culiarly interesting. Shortly prior to that
date the Star company Issued tl.OOO.OOO of
bonds and it was printed that Mr. Hearst
had mortgaged his three papers for that
amount. To correct the Idea that Mr.
Hearst had borrowed monry on his news
papers Mr. Shearn wrote the letter which
declares that Mr. Hearst Is the sole owner
of three papers and the Star company.
It is the observation of a New York law
yer competent to speak In Mr. Hearst's
newspaper property Is so far inclosed In
corporate wheels within wheels that It is
doubtful whether the owner could be con
nected with It as a legal proposition.
An interesting fact in this connection is
brought to light by an application made by
Hearst last May to the patent office for
trade murk rights for names of papers he
owns and others In contemplation, indi
cating a wide circle of newspaper ven
tures. The names are aa follows:

Hastings Tribune: The Omaha Bee did

lican revolt In Dotisins county Against
Fairfield News-Herald: The Omaha Bee
promptly rebuked the action taken by some
of the Douglas county republicans, that
they would support an Omaha man for
senator, notwithstanding the action of the
state convention, and In so doing- Is a timely
aa well as an able advocate of fair play.
Kearney Hub: Edward ftosewatcr did
a great deal tn the latter part of his life
to restore the republican party In and
for Douglas county In the esteem and good
graces of the party generally In the stato,
but some Omaha republicans appear to bo
determined to forfeit the friendly feeling
of the past few months and cut themselves
off from further consideration or tolera
tion in the councils of the party.
Arcadia Champion: The action of the can
didates for the legislature from Douglas
county In announcing that they would not
vote for Norrls Brown for United States
senator if elected, cannot but be censured.
Bad as Omaha wants a resident United
States senator and much as she might be
entitled to the office this Is a poor way of
getting it. The Douglas county delegation
to tha state convention entered the con
vention with a candidate for that office.
Mr. Roaewater announced that he entered
the contest In good faith. Norrls Brown
received the endorsement of that body and
In all honor the republicans of Nebraska
are bound by the action of that'conventlon.
North Platte Tribune: Eleven of the
twelve republican nominees for the leglr-.
lature In Douglas county have assented
to a resolution ngreeing to "support for
United States senator an Omaha man of
Integrity and ability, or such men from
other districts who are not antagonistic
to Douglas county If Impossible to elect
an Omaha num." This Is nothing Icrs
than attempted treachery, and we are
glad to note that The Omaha Bee Is nut
In sympathy with the move. By a major
ity vote of the delegates the atate conven
tion nominated Norrls Brown for United
States senator. That nomination Is Jut
aa binding as the nomination of any candi
date on tho state ticket.
Fremont Tribune: There Is s saving
claime In the Omaha declaration, afler all.
If an Omaha man cannot be elected, then
the delegation is to suuport some candi
date not antagonistic to Omaha. An j
Omaha man cannot be elected. Thnt much
may be set down In advance. Then it is
that the members from Donchi count v
wlll go to a friendly candidate. NorrN
Brown Is friendly to Omshi. U he were
not he would not get a vote in the Btato
of Nebraska. The state wants hltn to
he friendly to Omaha. He would be unfit
to be senator If he were not. But the
state does not erpect him to be owned,
body and soul, by Otuaha, to the extent
that he will sell out the state that Omnhn
and certain Omaha interests may prosper
beyond reason. Meantime- we shall aee
what we shall sen.
Oand Island Independent : Several of
the republican legislative candidates of
Douglas county appear to have banded
together and to have given It out that.
If elected, they would violate the iwpub.
lican state convention pledge and not vot
for Norria Brown. The flagrant act Is
promptly rebuked and repudiated bv Th
Omaha Wee, whose founder was the op
ponent of Mr. Brown. The Bee emph.-i-sliea
that Mr. Brown was the choice of
the republican rank and (lie in the' state
convention and that the Douglas county
delegation Is bound 'just as sacredly to
abide by the party's action in other re.
spec.ts., Tha Bee's position Is a strong
one not only for the party In the state
hut also for the Interests of'Omnhu ami
Douglas county in other directions. The
people over the state do not like to te
hostile to their Metropolis and her clti
sens. But If they are continually treated
unfairly, it is unreasonable to expect them
to feci otherwise. And the' outcome in
November will be watched, in this respect,
by every county In the state.

If elected, to vote for a Douglas county
man for the place.' 1st not calculated tn
ralKe Douglas county republicans In the esti
mation of the republicans throughout tha
state and will, If adhered to, go far towards
destroying tho good Impression and good
feeling created by the manly r.;ht of tha
delegation and graceful arqulesenca In tha
result of the state convention, both by the
late Edward Rosewater and the delegation.
We understand how Omaha ahotild feel
aggrieved and wish to retain tha senator
ship, and wc can also see how natural It
is that a county with great Interests at
stake and that for years has had one of
the senatorsnips, should seek to Inaugurate
a move that might eventuate In' retaining
the same, but as Tho Bee aptly puts It, tho
time to have taken steps to retain tha
senatorshlp waa when Douglas county's rar.
ferred candidate was making the flght of
his life for that recognition and w-hen the
votes thrown away on two or three dummy
candidates could have secured that recog
nition for Douglas county. Then, not now,
was the time to fight, nnd the candidate
who aro'asklng for' republican votes and
support, should be pledged to loyalty for
republican policies and men rather than
forced to a repudiation of ' at least Im
plied pledges to abide by the will of tha
majority In party affairs as in stato and
national. It is only fair to the candidates
to add that some of them are practically
repudiating the Yelser agreement and
doubtless all are secretly opposed to it.
