If anything were needed to prove
the charge that the democrats are In
league with the railroads in the pres
ent Nebraska campaign, me tell
tale letter which The Dee reproduces
in facsimile In this issue furnishes con
It J notorious that the democratic
tate convention was manipulated by
railroad lobbyists Into nominating
Shallcnberger, whom the railroad
bosses regard as a tried and trusted
friend, and rejecting Berge, on th
pretext that he was a populist, al
though he was good enough for the
democrats two years before.
It is also notorious that during the
present campaign the democratic state
chairman, who Is a partner of the
legal representative of the Missouri
Pacific, has been supplied direct from
railroad headquarters with tips on
railroad pass favors previously enjoyed
by republican nominees.
The tell-tale letter, however, shows
that the democratic machine, Is already
beginning to pay the railroads In kind
by pulling their chestnuts out of the
fire in the matter of municipal taxa
tion of railway terminals. Terminal
taxation is something the railroads
really fear. It will compel them to
pay city taxes upon their property,
which enjoys the benefit of city gov
ernment, which they now escape al
It is not a question whether this
property under pretended '.'distribu
tion" is taxed in cne Jurisdiction or
another. If it were. It would make
no difference to the railroads where
they paid the taxes on their terminals.
The proposed taxation of railway
terminals for city purposes Is a move
ment to make them pay taxes which
they now utterly evade, and that is
why the railroads oppose it.
When this question was up before
the legislature in 1903 the fusion
press and the fusion members en
deavored to make political capital out
of it by charging the republicans with
abetting the railroads In procuring its
defeat. Now, we have the sorry poc-
taclo of the chairman of the demo
cratic slate committee appealing to
democratic editors to print articles in
spired by the head lobbyist of the
Union Pacific railroad and to take up
the campaign for the railroads against
The mask is off. The democratic
ticket is the railroad ticket and a
democratic legislature means the sup
pression of all legislation not beholden
to the railroad bosses. In the face
of this revelation all efforts of demo
cratic organs and orators to fool the
people into the belief that the demo
cratic party Is not the railroad party
must fall flat.
The only way for Nebraska to make
effective a declaration of independence
from railroad domination is to bury
deep the railroad rappers who are
flaunting the democratic banner.
the postal i:htivatks:
Postmaster General Cortelyou's com
pleted estimates of appropriations re
quired for bis department the next
fiscal year call for a total of $;06.000,
000, an increase of $15,000,000 over
the current fiscal year, the estimates
tor which were $12,000,000 more
than for the fiscal year preceding it.
The increase for the coming year pro
vides for .only the normal growth of
postal business. But while the cost
vt this single department thus reaches
vast proportions, it merely marks the
expanding volume of the country's
commerce and Industry, which as It
increases defrays most of the cost.
With equalization of postage rates
according to relative cost of service in
the various classes of mall, and with
rectification of compensation to rail
roads for carrying the malls, which is
notoriously excessive, every dollar of
expense charged to the department.
vast a the estimated total is, could
be paid from its revenues without un
due burd'-n anywhere.
Over $5,000,000, or one-third of the
estimated increase, is for better pay
for poetofflee clerks, letter carriers
and railway mall clerks, the propriety
of which is universally recognized, and
to which the department now stands
emphatically committed. Such pro
vision of course depends upon con
gress, which is now confronted by an
actual emergency in the postal service
as well as by the demands of Justice to
its underpaid employes.

Secretary Hitchcock's characteriza
tion of the new rate law as "a tremen
dous success," and his assertion that
"there have been more reductions In
rates since August 29 than in all the
twenty years preceding?. Jn one day
the Interstate Commerce commission
having received B,000 schedules pro
viding for reduction of rates," while
superficially stating the facts docs not
discriminate as to their significance.
These innumerable rate reductions are
more apparent than real, for the re
duced tariffs that have been filed are
still in all likelihood not as low as
the average rates heretofore actually
collected by the roads. It Is pre
cisely within the difference between
the average actual tariff rates and
the nominal tariff rates that the Im
mense evils of rebates and all man
ner of discriminations have flourished,
the published rale being levied upon
the mass of Individual shippers and
the secret, rates enjoyed only by
favored interests usually overgrown
corporations and conspirators in re
restraint of trade.
That multitudes of reduced schedules
are being so rapidly filed under the
law which requires that the tariff
shall Invariably be the actual rate
charged to all shippers, making de
parture from the rule a criminal and
highly penal offense, Indeed Indicates
a success which in view of prevailing
illegal practices the last twenty
years, may warrant the adjective
"tremendous." It is beyond all ques
tion a gain of a vital point, If the law
shall thua secure equal enforcement
upon all shippers of the published
tariffs, and by odds the most impor
tant point ever gained by any one act
of legislation for railroad control.
But by no means does this prove
that th tariff rates, though reduced,
are reasonable and Just charges for
the service, and the superficial fact
of reduction in the published schedules
should not be permitted to create
such an impression. Beyond uni
formity of charge at published rates
lies the crucial question of reason
ableness of these rates for which a
satisfactory final answer has yet to
be found, and for which" the prevention
of variations between published and
actual rates is only, a preliminary step
Our old friend, "Uncle Dave" An
derson, comes to the front for South
Omaha's governor-apppinted police
board, telling all the good that has
been accomplished since it was In
stalled and lamenting the fact that
home rule would give control to the
' Irresponsible classes," who "have no
property interests there and never ex
pect to have." This is enlarging the
question to one of responsible gov
ernment not only for the police and
fire departments, but for all other de
partments of municipal government

Old world politics ha b;i unexpectedly
relieved of Its spalhtlc condition by the
advent of M. Clemenceau as premier of
France. A milker and breaker of c-HWncts,
he becomes the hoed arid front of the
diverse faction of the French congress.
His oft expressed antipathy for Germany
and frinndllneea for Mrltaln, provokes e-
precnlon of uneaeinpss in th former and
gratification in th latter. It should be
remembered, however, that the opinions
expressed by a political free lance, respon
sible to no one, usually undergoes a radical
change when weighted with the responsi
bilities of tat. Th radical of today be
comes the conservative of tomorrow. It
I not unlikely that M. Clemenceau, hav
ing reached hi long desired premiership,
will adjust his . former tipinion to the
necessities of the state, and follow policies
of compromise, of give and take, by which
alone a Krench ministry may secure an
average duration of life. The appointment
of General Plcquart as minister of war in
everywhere esteemed a notsble vindication
of th man ,ho dared obloquy and ostra
cism to secure Justleo for Captain Drey
fu. In all the French nrmy Colonel
Plcquart was the only man with the moral
courage to eKpouM the cause of Dreyfus.

disgrace, punishment and proscription for
his heroic self-nacrillce. The Dreyfus case
was a pitched battle agaJivtt privilege and
race prejudice by the democratic spirit of
France. Instead of showing the Injustice

out the difficulties which complicate the
plague problem In India, the report says:
"The mud huts of the people favor th
spread of plague, but they are built of mud
because that Is generally the only nialeti.-.l
the builder can obtain. Tho thorough dis
infection of such houses is often Impossi
ble, and the measure is unpopular because
tho inconvenience which it Inevitably
causes Is so frequently followed by flalluro.
The poorer class have few possessions,
but the fewer thy are the greater the
dread of their loss or Injury, and the keener
the anxiety to keep them in sight and
avoid their baing disinfected." The spread
of plague In India, the report continues,
has been compared, not inaptly, with the
spread of a Jungle Are; slowly but surely
tho margins of the fire extend, th flames
darting forward where the grasses are
long and dry, and. dying down where soxe

where thoy fall upon combustible material
to set up fresh foci, whence th fire ex

the meat important preventive measure.
A Vienna newspaper publishes A letter
from St. Petersburg In relation to the ne
gotiations now In progress for commer

Par on Motono Is the Japanese representa
tive, and he has experienced a tteady op
position to all bis propositions for the
opening of the Amur, the KuMtiati ob lec
tions, says the writer, beuig founded on a
profound conviction of the superiority of
the Japanese commercial ability. He de
clares that RumU is filled with a great
fear nnd mistrust of Japan, and that mili
tary oftlcers, especially thonc who have re
turned from the far east, are continually
aMked, "When does Japan mean to attack
us?" This fear is founded partly upon the
considerable Increase of the Japanese popu
lation In eastern Siberia, and partly upon
th frequent arrests of spies Inside the
Vladivostok fortifications. Nevertheless,
the relations of Paron Motono with the
Kussian court have been of tho friendliest
nature. On his arrival in St. Petersburg
he was most cordially received b the csar,
befor be received his credential. During
tho maneuver at peterhof he wa treated
by the cxar with exceptional honor, whllo
the highest state oftlclals vied with on3
another lu paying attentions to him when
he visited the Duma. The Perolom. a mod
erate liberal organ, remarked that th
Japanese would never have put forward
such shameless demands with respect to
the Amur if the Duma were atlll sitting,
to which tho Novoe Vremya replied that
the Japanese have no fear o' the Duma,
whose members "grovelled In the dust"
before Baron Motono in the Taurla palac.
Meanwhile the Japanese have been over
whelmed with invitations to dinners, motor
excursions, shooting and yachting parties,

THE LAD OF BOY.
A wonderful land Is the land of boy.
Where th hands on the clock mark the
moment of Joy.
Where the hills ar sugar, the mountains
And the rivers flow Into an Ice cream lake;
Whero candy growa on the forest trees
Aji'I the fairies dwell vith the mysteries:
The land of boy away, away
Through the happy valley of Golden
The land of boy Is a dear delight.
Where the sun shines sweetly and soft
Where the Kir is filled with the robin's
And ti e heart of venture beats bold and ,
Where hope's grav star burns clear and 1
And th wine of the summer Is In the air:
The land of Uy away, away I
The road winds dowu to the Oolden
There are top and trinket and marble
Penknives, putty and fishing hooks;
Printing press and railroad trains,
Wheelbarrows, wagjns Bn driving rains;
Posts and whistle and hoop and skates.
Sledires and sponges and drawing siutev;
The lima or Doy away, away
Over the hills of the Ch!ld-at-riav!
The land of boy is a sunny place.
Where rosy cheek and a smiling face.
Where roinp and laughter and chatter and
Oo round and round till the meadows
And the stars come out and th golden
Is red wher th sun ha gone to rest:
The land or ooy away, away
To the wand of fairy and elf and fay!
Merrv games and the venture heart
In tho lund of boy are a living pHrt;
Castle building and ships that sail
On the pirate main, and the paths of whale;
Hope anil love ana oeauty una gienm
All, all are a part of the bovland dream:
To the land of boy I long to atray
Thrnirli the hnipy valleys of Golden
