TROUBLES l.f CUBA YKT.
No commitment will be made in of
ficial quarters at Washington as to the
probable time of withdrawal of Amer
ican authority from Cuba, but It seems
to be the consensus of unofficial opin
ion that the tlmo Is quite remote and
that under the most favorable clrcum-stances-the
election of a'new native
government eannor be' had for six or
eight months. The threat of elvll war
on the verg? of .becoming general
throughout the Island wa,s met with
rare success by the promptitude and
wisdom of President Roosevelt's meas
ures and the extraordinary feat of dis
persing a numerous army of Insurg
ents was safely accomplished But In
some provinces and districts small
bands of armed men are ranping
about in brigandage and guerilla war
fare which It is absolutelv necessary to
suppress, and it may requite several
months to Btamp them out.
But the gravest difficulty is to bring
about a atate of feeling and relations
between the parlies lately in arms
against eath other so that a satisfac
tory government can be set going and
American control withdrawn without
danger of the hostile elements there
upon flying at each other's throats. By
all accounts their mutual animosity,
though for the moment restrained from
violent outbreak. Is still exceedingly
bitter, and the 'lodfutea are little
more inclined now yield the offices
than the revolutionists are to forego
them. Yet some sort of combination
between theni, or the upbuilding of a
dominant third party drawing its fol
lowing mainly from them and from ele
ments which heretofore have been In
different to both of them, is a neces
sary first step towards stable govern
ment that could be entrusted with the

The fact that five nieuiban of the
school board are to be chosen at the
impending election 1 creating no ex
citement and attracting little atten
tion. The reason for this is that the

already served aicepiably ou the
board, I ure to cany, becaube the
present management of our tichoola

The public schools of Omaha are
being conducted uow more nearly
free from politic aud more closely
along strictly business rules than
jer lfore. tad tU tuuiijiuauc of
the present school board In control
will mean that the people want to
push along still further on then lines.
There are, however, important prob
lems still ahead for the school board,
which will require tried business abil
ity for their successful solution. This
business ability is offered in the
republican school board ticket and Is
sadly 1r( king In the opposition candi

Colonel Bryan has seen fit to dodge
the questions propounded to him with
reference to the deal made with tho
railroads by his brother-in-law, Chair
man Allen, of the democratic state
committee. It Is Colonel Bryan's
privilege to avoid answering. These
quKtlons are not asked by The Bee
particularly, but are on the lips of the
whole body of Nebraska ' taxpayers,
who cannot understand how, while
pretending to be an antl-corporatlon
party, the democrats can line up with
the tax Shirking railroads for a propo
sition which they themselves have re
peatedly denounced In unmeasured
terms. The only inference to be drawn
from Colonel Bryan's silence on the
Allen deal Is that he can give no an
swer that would be satisfactory either
to himself or to the public.
Colonel Bryan has kept standing In
his paper a defiant declaration that
no one connected either directly or in
directly with any privilege seeking cor
poration should have any place In the
councils of the democratic party. In
Illinois he undertook to oust the demo
cratic national committeeman because
of alleged corporation connections,
and in Iowa he advised the democratic
candidates to retum to the railroads
the money said to have been furnished
to them for their campaign. In Ne
braska, however, where It is notorious
that the democratic state chairman,
who happens to be Colonel Bryan's
brother-in-law, has been hand-in-glove
with the railroad bosses and has worn
deep tracks between Lincoln and the
railroad headquarters In Omaha,
Colonel Bryan declines to discuss the
nioRt. vital issue, which is that of for
cing the railroads to pay their taxes
the tame as other taxpayers.
The Bee admires Colonel Bryan for
many qualities, and supposed that
courageous conviction which would
denounce such recreancy whether by
democrats or republicans was one of
theni. Colonel Bryan'a failure to re
pudiate the Allen agreement with the
railroads must be disappointing to his
friends, as It Is to us.
THK ILLIXOIS CESTBAL COXIEST.
With the approach of the meeting of
the . board of directors of the Illinois
Central It" b'ecomes evident that the
struggle for Its control increases in In
tensity, and that the result of the
stockholders' meeting four weeks ago,
although apparently favorable to Pres
ident Fish, was at no time accepted aa
conclusive. It is Impossible to dissoci
ate the popular notion of the contest
between him and Mr. Harrlman from
the question whether the road shall
continue to be operated independently
or in a substantial sense subordinate to
the vast combination of railroad prop
erties of transcontinental scope In
which the latter is the masterspirit.
In addition to other strong argu
ments It Is quite natural that there
should be a sentimental manifestation
in favor of the independence which
President Fish is supposed to repre
sent In the management of this great
north and south system, unique in its
position as It has been In its history.
But the imperialistic or centralizing
forces, operating bo powerfully on
transportation aa well as on other in
dustrial agencies, show no sign as yet
of ohauBtion. On the contrary, gain
ing strength by which they have long
fed on. they would aeem more power
ful than ever In this contest, -inl if
they should succeed the interrogation
wouid be sharply raised as to wnere
they are to stop.

the time required by law. thus In
validating the whole proceeding. The
democrats In the city council had five
months In which to pans this it-solution,
but purposely delayed doing
anything until after the thirty-day
limit fixed by law In the hope that
they could fool the friends of this re
form and make political capital with

Judge Hopewell, who is on the

The voting machine Is a complica
ted piece of mechanism. The voter
who does not understand how to
operate It so as to record his choice
for the candidates particularly favored
by him should not fall to ask for as
sistance from the election officers. It
Is no disgrace to require Instruction
on the voting machine.
The democrats are counting on the
farmers being too prosperous In Ne
braska this 'year to stop work long
enough to vote. Nebraska farmers
know that, prosperity and republican
success go hand in band and they will
not be too busy to vote for still more
prosperity by continuing the repub
licans In control.
More liberal stop-over privileges
for tourists going through Omaha are
very good in their way, but stopping
place facilities should also be provided

livered a hard blow to democratic state
plans, having printed In fac-slmlla a tell
tale letter mailed out to fusion editors,
and alongside some facts bearing on rail
road taxation three year ago as boomed
by the fusion press. It proves conclusively
what no close student of this fall's cam
paign has doubted from the first that
this time the reformers are in league with
the railroads of the state and that their
candidates will receive the corporation sup
port. If you do not care to take our word
for It and are further Interested, note The
