! Information of the manner In which
I the corporation laws of th single state
of New Jeraoy facilitate the nulllfl-
ration and evasion of the efforts of

i trial in Ohio has incidentally brought
out for the first time the fact that j
the corporation laws of foreign coun
tries ere used for the same purpose.
The Standard Oil trust, it appears,
maintains In London a phantom cor
poration, precisely as the Sugar, the
Tobacco, the Hearst Newspaper trusts
and innumerable others are organised
In New Jersey, to escape the essen
tial duties and responsibilities which
they owe to the public. It is In short
becoming plainer every day that
through the lack of a competent au
thority pervading and paramount to
the several states an elaborate system
of legal legerdemain has been devel
oped or evading effective state con
trol of trade conspiracies and monop

President Roosevelt In his recent Har

to emphasize the necessity of remedy
by national authority. The fact that

The death of Mrs. Jefferson Davis
will excite very different sensations
from what would have followed if it
had occurred a generation ago when
the bitterness of the civil war was
keen and universal both north and
south. The widow of the ex-president
of the confederacy had been living in
retirement so long that she had passed
from the sight and almost from the
memory of the general public and to
most of those now living the an
nouncement of her death seems rather
like an allusion to a figure In some
long passed historic drama, so far hare
we been swept by the current of time
and affairs from the epoch of the great
Mrs. Davis was 3 woman of birth and
breeding, of high character, thor
oughly southern and devoted to her
husband, over whom she possessed
extraordinary Influence. It Is not so
well known, but It Is a fact, that her
Influence In the critical period of his
life during the war, when he needed
the advice of stronger and better judg
ments than his own, often accentuated
his faults and foibles with disastrous
consequences to the confederate cause.
In the sentimental and chivalrlc de
votion of the south to Jefferson Davis
after the war the people lost sight of
his unpopularity in the south during
the latter years of the war. The anti
Davis feeling was especially strong in
Virginia and nearby states. His ob
stinacy, his narrowness, his lack of
precisely those attributes which made
Abraham Lincoln great, his personal
prejudices which designing men took
advantage of, bad Impaired the con
fidence of legions of the ablest south
ern men in his ability, although not
in bis sincerity in their cause.
Mrs. Davis was blamed because
there waa reason to believe that
many mischievous Influences reached
him through her. But she naturally
shared In the apotheosis of her hus
band in the south when misfortunes
and troublous times followed Appo
mattox. Her wifely loyalty to the head
of the fallen confederacy In his Impris
onment, and In the face of a nation's
fierce animosity, Is a virtue that can
be as deeply appreciated In the north
as well as in the south, and may well
be now remembered to her credit.

The democratic city council, aided
and abetted by the democratic candi
date for congress, has entered Into a
game of political claptrap on the eve of
election for the purpose of catching the
votes of friends of the Initiative and
referendum. With a great flourish of
trumpets, the council has passed a
resolution purporting to submit to the
voters of Omaha at the coming general
election, the question whether the In
itiative and referendum law should or
should not be adopted and applied to
municipal legislation In this city.
The Initiative and referendum law
was enacted by the legislature of 1897
and has a clause at the bottom of It
by which It is to remain in a state of
suspended animation until ratified at
the polls, depending by its own pro
visions on the expressed wish of the
electors of any municipality in which
it is proposed to enforce it. One sec
tion of this law provides that before
the submission of any question arising
under it the city clerk "shall cause no
tice to be printed in one or more news
papers published in such city, and also
in the office of the clerk and three or
more conspicuous places In such city,
at least thirty days prior to such elec
tion." It provides further that the
clerk "shall cause notice of such ordi
nances so referred to be printed in
pamphlet form and furnish the same
to the voters of such city upon their
application or order, such notice pro
vided In this section shall designate
where euch copies may be obtained."
So when the democratic councllmen
at the Instigation of the democratic
candidate for congress adopted the res
olution providing for submission of or
dinance No. 6767 "at the general elec
tion to be held in November, 1906,"
and instructed the city clerk "to take
such steps as are required by law, to
submit such ordinance to a vote at said
election," they knew, or ought to have
known, that tbey were commanding
the impossible upon the city clerk, be
cause less than thirty days Intervened
before the general election to be held
In November, 190. It Is a well-estab
lished rule of law that these notices
are Jurisdictional, and that It the re
quirements for notice are not fulfilled
the vote on the ordinance, even though
unanimous, would count for nothing.
With an election almost at hand at
which the democrats hope to land a
few of their candidates, no subterfuge
to gain votes Is beyond them. It Is
not a question whether the people of
Omaha favor or oppose the Initiative
and referendum, but whether any
number of them will allow themselves
to be fooled by such palpable horse
Candidate Shallenberger now de-
Clares that we need no new laws to
regulate railroads in Nebraska and
correct corporate abuses, but only
some one to enforce the laws we now
have. Most of the laws we now have
were on the statute books when the
fusionists were In control of the state
house, but they were never less vigor
ously enforced than then. It the lawa
we now have are all that are needed,
why Is It the democratic state plat
form promises a whole lot of new leg
islation? Candidate Shallenberger is
treading on dangeroua ground when
he begins to advocate letting the stat
ute books alone. That is all that the
railroads are asking.
It turns out that If the Omaha Coal
exchange is a trust amenable to prose
cution under the law, its operations
have been with the sanction and ap
proval of Candidate Hltchcock'a
World-Herald and former County At
torney English, who Is now running
tor re-election on the democratic
ticket. These worthies undertook to
intervene in the Coal exchange three
years ago and set up a protectorate
over the coal dealers on which the
the latter now rely to keep them out
of trouble. For a combination of sham
trust busters the democrstic candi
dates and their local organ are not to
be matched.
Our honored lasso-throwlng mayor

piece of outlawry ho might be accused
of. Why maintain Jails if it Is cheaper
to let the prisoners run at large?
In the bright lexicon used by Mayor
"Jim" no one Is a criminal unless he
kills a man at twenty ' paces. Little
offenses like picking pockets, petit lar
ceny and assault and battery do not
come within his definition of crime.

all the respectable pnpera of the metropolis
aie lined up against Hearst. Hearst's
three pap' rs conline their political news to
that winch favors the owner, excepting
burlesque reports of meetings of the op
position. This feature of Juuinullxllc
partisanship la carried to the extent of ex
cluding convention resolutions compli
mentary to William J. Bryan. UpposiUuii
dailies publish the speeches of both Hughts
and Hearts, but the local color is gen
erally favorable to Hughes. Several cor
respondents of outside papers sketch the
situation without purllsuii sptctncles and
present features of that remarkable cam
paign highly Instructive tu onlookers.
One of these impartial observers Is James
P. Hornaday, staff correspondent of the
Indianapolis News. Mr. Hornaday Is an
Indiana editor of ripe experience, discern
ment and Judgment. From a series of
letters to the News these extracts are
taken: "The atrcngth of the independence
League (Hearst) movement lies In the (act
thut the abuses which it promises to cor
rect do exist. The people know this and
in their desperation they have turned to
Hearst; the politicians know it, and that
is what has put them in a flutter of un
certainty as to what the result at the polls
will be. So it Is not true, as some news
papers have attempted to prove, that the
Hearst campaign is based althogether on
imaginary evils. Whatever may be said of
the man, or of hla methods, his campaign
Is well grounded, and leaders of publio
opinion here ore beglnlng to realize this aa
a fact.
"Hearst has increased his strength by
promising to do certain things If he Is
elected and in general they are things
the people of the state want done.
"He points out that the state railroad
commission is paid by the railroads, a p.
pointed by the railroads through a gov
ernor whom they choos?, serves the rail
roads, and "remains passive In the face of
deliberate violations of law." He says
he will. If elected, run the railroad com
mission out of office and the people ap
plaud. He will, he says, appoint a com
mission that will represent the traveling
public and not the railroads. Now, that
sounds good to the people of a state who
have been helpless at Albany for so many
years. Ho furthor promises that he will.
If elected, remove one Kllborn, the head
of the banking department at Albany, and
as a reason he specifies Instances of faith
lessness and dishonesty in trust companies,
banks and building and loan associations
that have gone unrebuked.
"This Is not a plea for Hearst, who
should be defeated because he Is not the
kind of a man to bring about reforms,
much as they are needed; these facts are
set out simply to show why his campaign
Is making headway why the old school
politicians and the corporations are fright
ened half to death because they fear he
may be elected.
"Before the campaign Is over the re
publicans and those democrats who have
been abusing Hearst and his cause, will
have to deal In facts. They are beginning
to realize that they can not laugh the
man and the cause he represents out of
court. They may abuse the candidate, but
they can not put down the Issues on which
he Is running. The great mistake the re
publicans made immediately after the con
ventions was In assuming that Hearst him
self was the Issue they had to meet.
In a sense President Roosevelt's pro
gram for controlling the corporations is
on trial In this campaign. It must figure
In the discussions because candidate
Hughes Is simply echoing the president's
views. Mr. Hughes and the republican
organization are ready to go as far as the
president would go In dealing with the cor
porations, and many leaders of public
opinion here believe when the people of the
state have a sober second thought they will
say that what Is good enough for Roose
velt Is good enough for them. The per
sonality of Roosevelt Is likely to figure
more and more In the campaign ns the
election approaches'. Hughes is the presi
dent's candidate, and his . defeat would
mean that Hearst had. defeated the presi
dent. No one doubts thst such a result
would give wonderful Impetus to : the
radical cure for corporation abuses which
Mr. Hearst advocate. Before the cam
paign ends speakers will be laying great
stress on the Roosevelt Issue Involved in
the campslgn. There will be an appeal to
stand hy the president by supporting his
representstlve, Mr. Hughes.
"Tt Is the first campaign In the hlstonr of

"For once the election mathematicians
have taken to the woods. Even the ven
erable forecaster on the Brooklyn Ragle,
who has a remarkable record for accurate
estimates, is bewildered. He said to the
News correspondent that he would not go
further now than to say that If the demo
crats who abandon Hearst outnumber the
republicans who change to Hearst, Hughes
will be elected.
"If one movement simply offsets the other,
Hughes will win. But he points out that
no one can tell the number of these re
spective discontents. The guessing take
a wide range and It all takes into account
the practical disappearance of party lines.
Among Hughes' supporters are men who
are inclined to believe mat tne demo
cratic movement to him will amount to 30
per cent of the democratio vote and that
the republican movement to Hearst will
amount to iO per cent of the party's total
strength. On the other hand, supporters
of Hearst are confident that their candi

the democratio vote and will receive from
W to 30 per cent of the vote that has in the
past been republican. So there you are

that no one has) more than a guess coming

It stirs one's blood to read the story of
Louis Lieber, a profieaslonal chauffeur, who
deliberately went to a horrible death In
the Ramapo hills a few days ago rather
than be the means of the probabla death
of two women. Lieber waa making a rec
ord run over the automobile road recently
built by E. H. Harrlman.. When round
ing a curve at the rate of nearly sixty
miles an hour he saw approaching him a
short distance away a machine with two
women occupants. The road was wide
enough for one car and on Lieber side
were rocky cliffs. Either he must collide
with the women or turn tils machine and
plunge against the rocks. There was but
a fraction of a second for him to do
clde; and Lieber did not hesitate, but ac
cepted certain death. Frightfully mangled
and bruised he recovered consclousnetts
only for a moment and all the words he
uttered were: "Are the women safer' He
waa made of the right stuff. Real courage
Is not the bravery displayed In the hope
of reward. It Is the strength to do the
thing that seems right no matter what
the result may be.
