"A MAX OF 1B0H' WOOD,"
The campaign In Nebraska Is
practically over. As was to have boen
exrxcted, the brunt of the battle has
been borne by George L. Sheldon, who
as republican standard' bearer, has
courageously and unflinchingly car
ried the Are Into the enemy's lines
and whose victory, unless all signs
fail, will be signal and decisive.
For the The Bee It is well to close
the campaign for Sheldon with the
same words with which it was opened.
Having special reference to him, the
late Edward Rosewater, editor of The
Bee, in the address to the veterans of
the Grand Army at Waterloo, deliv
ered but a few hours before his final
call, spoke as follows:

BAD BARGAMS ly COROKKT8.
The simultaneous denouements in
two international marriage "alli
ances," that of a daughter of the rich
Vanderbllt house with the holder of
the Marlborough title and that of
Anna Gould with a scion of a ducal
family of France, form a climax of in
ternational scandal. In both cases
inherited American millions were bal
anced with Impoverished but glitter
ing foreign titles, the compacts having
been ominously and obtrusively adver
tised in advance from the aristocratic
side as alliances for convenience. In
both cases the millions were squan
dered with headlong prodigality, al
though in that of the English noble
man without the accompaniments of
impatient innate brutality which ag
gravate the infamy of the French mat
rimonial bargainer. But the one as
well aa the other points the moral with
woe and conspicuous humiliation for
the two victimized American girls,
their families and in a sense their
The time has not yet come when
our American Ideals of marriage can
be violated with impunity. They are
so confirmed and distinct that effort
to substitute the artificial adjustments
of an utterly different society and an
alien feudal regime can develop only
essential incompatibility. There have
Indeed been felicitous unions conjoin
ing American wealth and foreign title,
bu.t not where cold-blooded calcula
tion and convenience were the sole or
main moving consideration. Nor in
the very nature of things is it possible
to introduce here that baals'of "great
world'' marriage without the sequel
of public contempt on both sides, of
household wreck and moral catas
trophe. WESTERS VHIYBRSITY GROWTH.
The facts concerning college attend
ance for the current year indicate re
markable growth of the higher educa
tional Institutions In the west. While
every important western university re
ports notable increase of students,
ranging as high as 18 per cent over
last year, the highest gain in New
England was 7 and in the middle
states 10 per cent, and in one of the
greatest eastern universities an actual.
though slight, loss.
This contrast between the old east
ern and the young western institutions
by no means proves decadence of ed
ucatlonal interest among the Atlantic
coast communities. Their famous uni
versities have drawn largely from the
west because it was unable to furnish
equal facilities to its young men and
women. Before the civil war ths so
called colleges that had been founded
In these western states, while numer
ous, were mainly local financially
weak and ill-equipped, and it required
decades to make them strong and out
of their number to build up a few great
representative centers of learning ap
proaching In character and opportuni
ties to those of the east. The unpar
alleled material development, espa
daily the last decade, has enabled
western states like Nebraska, in which
Bplendld university foundations in land
appropriations were early provided, to
gether with tho expanding volume of
taxable wealth, to push their higher
educatloual advantages rapidly for
ward abreast of those of the old east
ern universities which formerly had
the field almost alone. Unless such a
transformation had been brought
about ths attendance in the east would
be now more rapidly Increasing than
ever, because where with great diffi
culty one young man could formerly
avail himself of a university course,
scores could now easily afford to do so.
In no narrow or sectional sense, In
deed, is the west to be congratulated
upon so fortunate an achievement, for
excluslveness Is repugnant to the iuter
ests of learning, but upon the extra
ordinary expansion of educational op
portunity which it implies. This
growth brings virtually to ths door of
every aspiring boy or girl In Nebraska,
or Michigan, er Iowa ths outlook tor
culture and, equipment for life which
not long ago was open only to the ex
tremely fortunate few.
WHAT TflK PLATFORM PROMISES.
The republican state platform this
year promises the people of Nebraska
more substantial reform legislation
than has ever been held out to them
before by any political party. Not
only this, but the candidates, almost
without exception from top to bottom,
are standing squarely on the platform,
so that the redemption of these pledges
may be confidently expected.
In the first place, the platform un
equivocally denounces the refusal of
the railroads to pay their taxes, and
promises redoubled efforts to compel
them to pay their just share of taxa
tion at the same time and in the same
manner as a private individual.
The platform puts the party on rec
ord in favor of bringing home to the
people the choice of their public offi
cers. This Is to bo accomplished first
by a state-wide direct primary law
and, second, by amending the consti
tution of the United States for the
election of United States senators by
direct vote of the people.
The platform declares unalterable
opposition to corporate interference in
public affairs and promises a stringent
anti-pass law that will stop the issuing
of free passes In all forms "except to
bona fide employes and members of
their Immediate families, and care
takers of live stock."
The platform not only endorses the
proposed constitutional amendment es
tablishing a state railway commission,
but pledges legislation giving the com
mission full power "to prohibit re
bates, discriminations and special
rates," and "to see to it that any and
all abuses are corrected and equitable
freight and passenger rates obtained
for the people."
The platform promises impartial en
forcement of the revenue law and the
restriction of expenses pf state gov
ernment to a basis of the most rigid
economy, as also an employers' liabil
ity act permitting recovery for injuries
notwithstanding the negligence of a
The platform declares for terminal
taxation, or In other words, that while
the present method of assessing rail
road property is not to be altered as it
affects county, state and school taxes,
the revenue law should be amended
so that railroad property within cities
and towns should be also assessed and
taxed for city and town purposes the
same as other property.
The platform finally promises legis
lation to insure inspection and uni
form tests of dairy products for the
purpose of protecting and encouraging
the growing dairy interests of Ne
With such an explicit statement of
what party success will bring, and
more especially with a candidate for
governor like George L. Sheldon, who
believes a platform pledge as inviola
ble as a promissory note, the people
may rest assured that by voting Ne
braska into the republican column
they will line this state up for a thor
ough program of Roosevelt reform.
NATWXAL POWER AD OBLlOATIOyS.
The instructions issued by Attorney
General Moody to the United States
district attorney at' San Francisco to
co-operate In the proceedings brought
in the federal court to compel the
school authorities to permit Japanese
children to enter any of the public
schools show that the administration
does not accept the theory of national
Impotence with respect to this any
more than with respect to other na
tional needs. It has been too readily
assumed that the national government,
one of the chlefest of whose functions
is exclusive control of International ob
ligations, is powerless to enforce them
against recalcitrant local authaMtles.
But the time has come for the mischief
of the state sovereignty heresy, whose
paralysing and disorganizing force has
been shattered In so many other vital
applications, to be rooted out of our
There Is no question whatever that
discrimination against Japanese In pub
llo schools is a violation of the intent
of ths treaty of 1894, for its terms
guarantee to them the same rights as
are conceded to other nationalities, in
cluding the "most favored nation"
clause, admission to public schools
without discrimination having always
been considered one of these rights.
Nor Is there question tuat, tho circum
stances being reversed, ur own gov
ernment would roundly demand and
enforce cessation of such, discrimina
tion against Its citizens in Japan, or
any other country, under the same
treaty convenant. But a recent state
statute of California provides for gross
discrimination against children of
"Mongolian" parentage, and It Is un
der this statute that the San Francisco
school authorities have proceeded
against ths Japanese.
It would therefore be surprising if
the Roosevelt administration, which be
lieves that our national government has
all the powers Indispensable to genuine
nationality as an inference from its
creation and the framework therefor
expressly provided In the constitution,
should not assort itself against the Cal
ifornia form of nullification. No Im
plied powers, however, need be ap
pealed to in this case, for the constitu
tion explicitly provides that "all trea
ties made or which shall be made un
der the authority of the United States,
shall be the supreme law of ths land,
and the Judges In every state shall be
bound thereby, anything In the constl
tutlon and laws of any state to the con
trsry notwithstanding." It may well
be credited that Secretary Root holds
that plenary authority Is thereby con
(erred to compel compliance with such
treaty obligations, and that the full
power of the national government will
be employed If the efforts now in prog
ress to persuade the local authorities
Tho question narrowed to the case
in hand ia grave enough, involving the
good will pf one of the most powerful
nations and our material Interests In
the far east. But now that we have
entered upon a career of world Influ
ence It Is Impossible with safety or
with self-respect longer to tolerate such
vast concerns to be at the mercy of
mere local caprice, local prejudice or
even local Interest.
AXOT11ER STEP FORWARD.
While The Bee speaks for' Itself, In
point of freedom from the sensational
ism nnd Indecency which characterize
the various yellow Journals, it Is not
out of place to call the attention of our
readers to another step forward which
this paper has taken toward the elimi
nation of features that might cause
objection. The Bee has undertaken to
exclude from its columns all nauseous
medical advertising and to exercise the
right of revising advertising copy that
comes under this heading.
In Making this move, The Bee real
izes that it Is doing so at considerable
financial loss, but feels certain it will
more than recoup by better satisfying
its reading patrons. From Its incep
tion The Bee has been recognized as
one of the cleanest and most whole
some newspapers to be found any
where. Its aim Is to put out a news
paper that is in every way fit for the
home and can be read aloud without
hesitation In the family circle with
benefit to every member of the house
hold. With this improvement in'the
advertising columns, we are sure The
Bee will come still closer to being the
ideal family paper with corresponding
appreciation by the general public.
EXAMPLE OF ROAD IMPROVEMENT.
There have lately been preparations
for extensive Improvement of country
roads In a number of states, particu
larly in Missouri, Virginia, Illinois and
Ohio, but in none of them on so large
a scale and so thorough and practical
system as in a law passed by the legis
lature of New York last winter. This
law, the great Importance of which
was temporarily obscured by absorb
ing public Interest in insurance reform
legislation, contemplates the expendi
ture of no less than $75,000,000 in
Improvement of the public roads, and
provides not only for the necessary
funds, but also for their employment
in an economic and scientific way
which will permanently revolutionize I
the means of wagon transportation.
To those accustomed to the crude,
piecemeal and futile methods by which
meager public funds are dissipated on
the roads in most states such a sum
may seem, at first blush, enormous and
extravagant. It was, however, re
solved in New York to provide it only
after an exhaustive investigation of
the whole subject, whereby it was
demonstrated that the economic waste
caused by needlessly bad roads and
which will be saved by the proposed
improvements amounts annually to
$38,000,000. In short, the undertak
ing promises to save net to the com
munity each ye&r an amount equiva
lent to one-half the cost of the whole
Investment, and as the Improvements
are to be permanent, with compara-1
tlvely small maintenance expense, the
gain Is almost Incalculable.
The lesson of this notable good
roads movement for the other states.
n.here, because of the rise of land val
ues and related conditions, the prob
lem of transportation off the railroads
is becoming more serious. Is that rad
ical change from the antiquated meth
ods heretofore employed is absolutely
indispensable as the first step. Under
the New York system the state author
ity becomes Bupreme for consistent
and comprehensive plans, supplanting
the inefficiency of township and
minute road district autocracy, $50,
000,000 being raised on state bonds
and the remainder by the several coun
ties. The least part of the benefit of
this improvement, vast as it Is, will
Inure to the state of New York If the
result shall lead the people of other
states to realize that large and general
betterment of public road conditions
cannot be had without large and gen
eral changes of road laws.

long way from Nebraska and therefore
furnishes a perfectly safe topic of dis
cussion. Here at homo people are in

and South Omaha, regardless of party
afflllatlous, should vote for Mr. Cowell.
The local democratic campaign man
agers are counting on the railroads
and the liquor dealers to pull their
candidates through for them in Doug
las county. This combination, even if
it were lined up solid! tot ths demo-
orotic ticket, Is not necessarily invinci
ble. Douglas county Is normally re
publican and thers Is no good reason
why it should not be counted in the
republican column this year.
