But when the chairman of the dem
ocratic state committee begins already
to pull railroad chestnuts out of the
lire by enlisting all the democratic
legislative nominees with the rail
roads to fight against equitable taxa
tion of railroad property, the cloven
hoof is clearly shown and conclusive
proof is furnished that the arrange
ment between the democrats and the
ailroads are reciprocal. .
The railroads are, by agreement, to
help the democratic candidates and
the democrats are to help the rail
roads. The railroads can afford to put
all that Is necessary into the demo-
ratic campaign if the democrats grant
them immunity from municipal taxa
tion, which means a tax burden of from
250,000 to $300,000 a year shifted
fiom the railroads, where it belongs,
property owners in all our Ne
braska cities and towns.
This, however, .must be only one of
the clauses in the reciprocity treaty
between the democrats and the rail
roads. If the democrats have taken
the contract to protect the railroads
gainst 'terminal taxation, they have
also, without question, agreed to pro
tect the railroads in the other privi
leges they enjoy by defeating all legis
lation in the Interest of the people
when that might affect the railroads
adversely. The compact must be a
complete offensive and defensive alli
ance by which the election of the dem
ocratic ticket and a democratic legisla
ture will put the railroad bosses in
absolute control of the state house
and state government for two years
to come and leave the people at their
A lawjcss situation in San Francisco
has reached a climax, rivaling In dis
grace and peril to the city that which
produced the extra legal but effective
vigilance committee half a century
ago. .There was a natural explanation,
both for , the riot of crime and the
high handed and irregular proceedings
by which it was ended, because San
Francisco, then isolated from civilized
connections and only a straggling
camp recruited largely from the
world's adventurers, had not yet be
come a normal and stable community.
But that the Pacific coast metropolis,
one of the greatest cities on the con
tinent, should now be under a crim
inal reign of terror, and especially that
the machinery of the law should in
vital parts be notoriously prostituted
to league with organized crime, rises
above tha intolerable local outrage to
the height of a national scandal.
An issue is raised which San Fran
cisco must on peril of irreparable
harm meet forthwith. The disaster
by earthquake and fire early in the
year-was a tremendous blow -to ma
terial Interests, but the city could In
time hope to recover from its effects
through wise policy as the basis of
outside credit. That basis would be
undermined unless worthy and virtu
ous citizenship now shows itself strong
enough to cope with the corruption
permeating and largely controlling the
local government. With life and prop
erly insecure and nothing safe but
crime,, it would be insane for Sao
Francisco, amidst its other misfor
tunes, to hope to rebuild or even not
to retrograde , from its present bad
state. 1
It seems a paradox that a community
which In the very face of the memor
able catastrophe of quake and con
flagration a few months ago could pre
vent crime should so soon be found
at the mercy of criminals protected and
tbetted by the palico and the higher
local authorities over them, and that
the first step In restoring the law
must be to battle with officers en
trusted with its enforcement.
' The bill drafted by the so-called di
vorce congress, whose members were
appointed by President Roosevelt
nearly a year ago, will be disappoint
ing to many who are zealous for di
vorce law reform because of some of
the- causes recognized aa grounds either
for divorce or for" legal separation, but
It may prove more rather than k-bs
valuable on that account. The central
aim of the congress was not merely
ldeallbm, but uniformity of divorce
legislation. The congress, which is
composed of eminent legislators, law
yers ard clergymen, who bad studied
tba subject as a practical problem,
had to consider the vast range of dif
ference between those states whose
laws are at outright offense to moral
sentiment and other states, the ultra
stringency cf whose laws is not ap
proved by the average sentiment of the
country. ' It would be palpably futile
to viouae tor a uniform law uy
draft of an extreme character In either
The measure will be conceded to be
an immense Improvement upon di
vorce provisions in the majority of the
states, being a thoroughly digested
system and embodying the bptter fea
tures of many existing statutes, but
especially valuable in its tendency to
avoid evils of mere court practice,
which indeed are among the worst
connected with the whole subject. The
authority with which it comes should
at least stimulate discussion and help
to secure needed amendments to the
laws of many states.
Save in this indefinite way, how
ever, it is problematical how far the
uniformity which is desirable will be
promoted on the basis of the divorce
congress model draft, unless, indeed,
a more imperious public demand than
now is heard snail manifest itself. Na
tional legislation which might secure
uniformity Ib constitutionally impos
sible. The wide variation of. local
sentiment and the opposition of ex
treme opinions to many provisions of
the proposed system are not unlikely
to prevent its general incorporation in
state legislation, at. least for a long
time to come.
The people of Omaha will vote at
the coming election on a franchise
proposition that will determine
whether this city shall have a second
telephone system or continue with a
single telephone system as at present.
That there are advantages and disad
vantages of dual telephones goes
without saying, so it remains for those
who are to pass on this question to
judge whether the advantages or the
disadvantages weigh most.
Theoretically, the single telephone
in its perfection would bring us the
pinnacle of verbal Intercommunication.
If we could havo one telephone system
by which each telephone user could
talk to every other user with prompt
ness and facility and at reasonable
rates for the service, nothing more
could be desired. Two telephone In
struments to do the work which one
could do would be a superfluity and a
waste, as well as an annoyance.
The people of Omaha, however, are
confronted with a condition rather
than a theory. The complaints against
the present tele-phone system, ignoring
those of unsatisfactory service, which
prevail everywhere, are two-fold.
First, that it charges excessive rates.
Second, that it deprives us, in the na
ture of things, of intercommunication
with a large number of telephone users
on independent "lines throughout the
On the question of rates, the pro
posed new franchise makes some con
cessions, guaranteeing full metallic in
dividual line unlimited telephones at a
maximum of $2.50 per month, as
cgalnst $3 per month now charged,
and full metallic individual line un
limited business telephones at a max
imum of $5 per month, aa against $7
now charged. In addition to this the
new franchise provides for free con
nections with ttonth Omaha and a roy
alty of 2 per cent on gross earnings to
the city. That this would be a con
slderable financial saving to the pub
lic,' if it could be made effective upon
the present service, is self-evident
But it is also the teaching of experl
ence in other cities where the dual
telephone system has been tried that
tho installation of a second telephone
forces a large portion of the telephone
subscribers, , especially the business
and professional men, to uso both tele'
phones, and that the charges upon this
portion of the telephone clientage for
double rentals as a rule makes their
burden heavier, although, of course,
with some compensation In the form
of increaBtd cervice.
With reference to the promise to
bring Omaha into communication with
independent telephone users outside of
Omaha, tho management of the exist
ing telephone service la Omaha pro
fesses willingness to connect up
with any outside system on mu
tually satisfactory terms, unless
competing with one of its own ex
changes. The larger number of in
dependents who have refused such con
nections arc In close relationship with
the independent systems barred out by
this proposition and bound by their
agreements with them not to accept
such an offer, regardless of terms. We
therefore have this situation, that the
independents, clamoring for communi
cation with Omaha, will consent to
communicate only through an inde
pendent telephone exchange. The ques
tion, then, is simply whether or not it
would pay Omaha to grant a second
telephone franchise for the purpose of
getting Into closer touch, commer
cially, with users of independent tele
phones in our trade territory, who can
iot be reached by existing telephone
connections. '
To the laboring men and nontele
Iihone users the new franchlee propo
sition holds out tho prospective' in
vestment of approximately $1,000,000
in the construction and equipment of
a second plant. This money would
be largely spent here and be distrib
uted through local channels of busi
ness. On the other side, it muat be
remembered 'that capitalists would not
Invost this money unless they expected
to get It back and that tho profit must
tome out of the community which
their telephone system would serve.
Outside of all this, the pending
franchise contest must be regarded as
one of tho skirmishes in the gigantic
battle engagement going on over the
country for majtery between the
old entrenched telephone interests and
the new independent telephone com
panies. Omaha is a strategic point of
hUbcit lmportani'O on the telephone
map. Its exclusive possesion by the ex
isting telephone system constitutes an
almost Insuperable obstacle in the way
of the continued progress of the Inde
pendent tHephop movement. The
opening of Omaha by th voting of a
second telephone franchise would fur
nish a needed link of the transconti
nental tiunk lines which are slowly
but surely pushing themselves from
ocean to ocean and which will eventu
ally enable people to talk to one an
other from the Atlantic to the Pacific.
Whether this highway shall belong to
the old telephone Interests or shall be
shared by the new Independent inter
ests when this development shall have
been completed will be determined in
the present contest and by many is re
garded as really more important than
the strictly local questions in issue.
The peril of disturbance of good re
lations between the United States and
Japan because of discriminations
against Japanese under the California
school and labor laws emphasizes once
more the anomalous situation of our
government In Its foreign relations.
It wub intended to be the national
organ In international interests and
obligations, and yet it was left by di
vision of powers with the states im
potent to enforce upon our own citi
zens obligations which It demands
that foreign governments shall enforce
upon their subjects. It enters into
treaties guaranteeing to foreign resi
dents the same protection and priv
ileges our citizens are to receive
abroad, and yet it is powerless to pun
ish infractions either by Individuals
or local authorities to the extent and
in the manner that we have insisted
that foreign governments should do
under treaties in like circumstances.
Ordinarily, the consequences have so
far not been serious, as even in so
flagrant a case as the lynching of Ital
ian subjects at New Orleans ten years
agv the national government paid lib
eral damages, although it could not
punish the perpetrators. But thore
might be the greatest danger in dol
ing with a paople of such intense na
tional sensibilities as the Japanese,
who would resent unjust treatment or
discrimination in violation of treaty
rights, and who are in position to make
their resentment effective. The case
is Just the reverse of that of the pow
erless Chinese. ' Even though a ten
sion might not be created that would
precipitate war, in which Japan would
be a most formidable antagonist, it
might still be disastrous to our com
mercial and material Interests, because
it ha3 keen demonstrated that the Jap
anese are perfectly aware of the ad
vantages of their position and resolute
to employ them. .
With the disabilities . under which
our national government labors, the
main reliance must ba upon an en
lightened public sentiment that will
prevent local . prejudice and wrong
from going to extremes against for
elgners of any race or color who may
be lawf ally sojourning here. Fairness,
liberality and toleration are all the
more vital now, that our external re
lations . and interests have become
world-wide - and must grow in im
portance unless we, as a nation, are to
c:ue to grow.
Candidate Hitchcock is trying to
lay claim to a patent right on the
proposition for a postal savings bank.
The fact is, the postal savings bank
ho 3 been advocated and agitated by
The Dee for a quarter of a century(
and its persistent hammering upon
that subject has had. as much, If not
more, to do with bringing the ques
tion finally to the front as any other
one agency. It is a further fact that
Congressman Kennedy's advocacy of
postal savings banks dates back about
as far as Candidate Hitchcock's, and,
more than that, through Mr. Ken
nedy's effort an official Inquiry has
been started to secure authoritative
ti; formation about the operation of
postal savings banks in other coun
tries that promises to bring the mat
ter soon to a focus. The campaign
handbook issued by the national re
publican congressional commitee In
cludes postal savings banks in the list
of enumerated pressing pending meas
ures, while the democratic handbook
has no reference whatever. In a word.
the election of a republican congress
promises consideration of the postal
savings bank project, but the election
of a democratic congress gives no as
surance that the subject will ever get
on tho legislative program.
It is reported that Postmaster Gen
eral Cortelyou will resign the chair

tomes within the proscrlptlve rule
inundated by Colonel Bryan, that no
cue officially connected with a privi
leged corporation has any right to oc
cupy a position in the councils of the
democratic party.
The republican legislature holds
out promise of relief to city and
village taxpayers through the taxa
tion of railway terminals for munici
pal purposes. A democratic legisla
ture means the perpetuation of the
present system of tax shirking, by
which the railroads get all the bene
fits of city government la Nebraska
without paying for them.

Good Points of a Role Adopted by a
New York Court.
Minneapolis Journal.
Ona of the New Tork courts has estab
lished a new rule In divorce proceedings.
It requires that a divorced person shall not
marry the co-respondent named In the case
during the lifetime of the former husband
or wife. The decree of divorce is made to
carry this condition, and If the condition Is
violated then tha decree becomes void.
There cannot be any sound objection to
such a rule. Defendants In divorce cases
often make no appearance, because they are
well satisfied to get their freedom, in order
W marry the person responsible for the
break-up of the family. The new rule will
not reach a majority of such cases, for
the causes mentioned In the suit are often
not tha real causes, and to save salacious
proceedings in court the complaint Is
brought on grounds of "cruel and Inhuman
treatment" or desertion, which occurs by
mutual consent. Often, too, the offending
party brings the complaint and gets a
divorce In order to marry some one else,
whose name does not , appear before the
court In these cases the court cannot stop
remarriage without a sweeping order pro
hibiting tt during tho lifetime of the former
partner, and thla Is generally considered too
drastic. But the plan adopted by the New
Tork court has Its good points, and should
not be condemned merely because it can
not refok-m tha whole practice. It looks to
be worth a trial In other states.

Brooklyn Eagle: The official organ of the
Episcopal churoh In this country proposes
to fight Mrs. Eddy with her own devices.
It wante to medlclnallze In unction. But
Mrs. Eddy will reply that It is not oil that
can cure apoplexy, corns, appendicitis and
broken legs; tt Is faith in the curative prop
erties of anything that cures. And it is
cheaper to have faith in words than in ma
terials. Chicago Chronlclo: In a sermon to Tulw
men Rev. Lyman Abbott said: 'The rem
edy for industrial evils Is a substitution of
the ambition for service for the ambition
for acquisition. It would be a good plan to
put the golden rule up in our factories." If
employers wera to preach ambition for
service to their employes the tatter would
strongly suspect the presence of a svlfish
motive behind the preachment and would
be likely to suggest that the employers
teach by example rather than by precept.
Other Pianos arc sold at $500 or more,
simply because of the Kranick &
Bach standard of value,
The Kranlth & Bach makes the market. Because of
the superlative worth or a Kranlth & Bach it brings $376
upward. Beeauso there is a piano of such universally rec
ognized value, others attempt to classify their warm with
the Kranlch & Bach by simply asking the same price, thus
securing a greater profit and wider margin for trade and
time allowance, the buyer paying the penalty.
A Krsnlch & Bach is always curling in qitulity, like
the work in precious metals. All the styles are of the
amue Intrinsic staii'lard of value, the only difference being
In the form neceasary to meet your personal want. The

Peath always comes too soon.
To the child who is too young to know,
(Prav heaven he never may!) .
This life of ours Is more than play
A debt contracted long '
Which he. perforce must pari , ,
And the man whose head Is gray,
And sad. is- fsln to borrow.
Albeit with added pain and sorrow.
The comfort of delay;
Only let blm live today
There will be time to d'e tomorrow!

Under the uncertain sky. . . .
Pave to pluck rimes for the hair
Of the loving and the fair.
And the kisses following these,
IJVe s swarmln Hive of bees
That soar on high,
Till, drunken wl'h their own sweet wlna,
They fall and die.
When dear words have all been Bald
And bright eyes no longer ehlne
(Ah, not thine!)
Clos thet-e weary eyes of mine.
And bear me to the lonolv bed
