The Joint conference of the legisla
tive board of the American Hankers'
association and of the representatives
of the New York Chamber of Com
merce, by agreeing on the general
proposition for such change of the na
tional bank laws as will permit banks
to Issue credit currency of their own,
takes a step In advance, but a step
far from conclusive. It may be effec
tive so far as to raise the question
for real discussion among bankers as
a class, and, what is even more im
portant, among those outside of the
banking business who will largely in
fluence public, opinion, but hardly so
far as to control congressional action i
at the coming short session, unless it
gives a more powerful impulse to pub
lic sentiment than veems at all likely.
. A material point has unquestionably
been gained in inducing the Chamber
of Commerce representatives to forego
Insistence upon their scheme of a great
central bank on the model of the Ger
man bank, with similar powers over
issue and rates, because insistence on
that would certainly have hopelessly
split the conference. The central bank
idea involves such diametrically op
posed convictions within the rank of
bankers themselves, and such revolu
tion in our banking and currency sys
tem, that the discussion provoked by
it would be wholly polemical and
would nullify Instead of promote prog
ress towards a solution of the prac
tical problem. The narrow escape of
the conference from division on this
point and Its decision to restrict rec
ommendation to a most general state
ment of principle, leaving the whole
field of method and detail, pj.cn, sug
gest once more the unfortunate ir
resolution of opinion among bankers,
considered as a class apart, although
it marks some progress when such a
representative body can be brought to
agree even in a general statement of
principle for securing greater cur
rency elasticity. As to that, however,
their constituency, the bankers of the
country, among whom such diversity
of judgment appeared at the recent
St. Louis meeting of the national as
sociation, is yet to be heard from. It
thus remains to be seen bow far their
views can be reconciled with .the gen
eral recommendation of bank credit
circulating notes, unaccompanied by a
definite system for its inauguration in
practice, and under the circumstances
congress will be tempted to wait for a
fuller consensus of public opinion be
fore going on with the matter in ear
nest. lf, as a result of Secretary Metcalf 's
mission to San Francisco, he can
formulate no cure-all for the Japanese
complaint, he is able, according to
verified reports of hia unofficial state- I
nients, to define cieatiy the material
difficulties of the problem. In the first
place the secretary is satisfied that as
a constitutional and legal matter the
restriction of Japanese child,eu lo
specified public schools, separate from
white children, is a violation of treaties
between tbe United States aud Japan.
, In short, he wPl report to the presi
dent that the point raised by the Jap
anese government is well taken and
that the action of the San Francisco
local authorities constitute a substan
tial violation of ovr international ob
ligations. Secretary Metcalf s conclusion gives
point to his finding as to the facts, to
the effect that the virtually unanimous
sentiment in San Francisco and also
in California is positively opposed to
the free intermingling of children of
Asiatic parentage with white children
in the public schools, so that the action
of the school authorities,! not merely
their own. but representative of the
popular will. No evasion of the dif
ficulty, therefore, is to be had by con
struing the word "Mongolian" in the
statute ss exclusive of the Japanese,
and giving them indiscriminate access
lo the schools because so iutcuev is
ponular prejudice against I he
Asiatiis. Iioib .lapant'se and I'hliuse,

The danger is that the situation may
develop into a deadlock between local
and national antlioiitx, the former le
spoiullns lo popular sentiment in city
and slate against the lights of alien
residents, nnd the latter bound by In
ternational obligation under the con
stitution, which (let lares that "all
treaties made, or which shall be made
under authority of the United Ktates,
shall be the supremo law of the land,
anything in the constitution or laws of
any slate to the contrary notwithstand

that, under the present administra
tion no such deadlock, especially one
Involving grave national and interna
tional duties and interests, Is likely
long to remain in statu quo.

During the recent, tampaign the
republican state committee uncovered
the fact that railway passes were being
offered to students and others at the
stale university, provided they would
agree to go homo nnd vote the demo
cratic ticket. This was adduced not
only to expose the vicious practice,
but also to support the charge, based
on the tell-tale letter of Chalrniajl
Allen taking up the railroad side of
the terminal taxation question, that
the railroads and the democrats were
working in close alliance.
Instead of denying the alleged dis
tribution of passes, the democratic
campaign managers, and more partic
ularly the World-Herald as the demo
cratic organ, undertook to denounce
the intercepted pass as a forgery,
going into considerable detail as to
how an old discarded pass form had
been filled out and the year date, 1900,
moved up to If 06, on a photographic
reproduction. Of course, this was Im
possible, us every railroad man knew,
and ns an examiu.itton of the face of
the pass would quickly have proven
to any intelligent person.
Just to show the good faith of the
republicans and the bad faith of the
opposition, the original of the Gallo
way pass has been procured and is
now on exhibition in the Farnani
street window of The Itee's business
office, where every one who wishes
niay examine it and make sure that
there is nothins in the nature of a
forcerv about it. The campaign is
over, to be sure, but other campaigns
are coining in the future and it is well
to close this Incident now by effectually
puncturing the forgery roorback
raised by the democrats.
.vol' ;iti) nvsixts.
The announcement Is made that the
State Board of Educational Lands and
Funds has just invested J200.000
more in Mississippi state bonds to net
the school fund a fraction over 3.7
per cent. Why money belonging to
the public schools of Nebraska should
be sent to Mississippi, to be loaned at
rates, of interest less than what our
own school districts are paying on
money borrowed to erect school houses
in Nebraska, will strike the man of
ordinary business sense peculiaily.
The reason is that our state con
stitution prohibits the investment of
, ! .1.:.... ,..-n....t I
bonds of Nebraska counties. Having
taken up all of our own obligations
that are available, it becomes neces
sary to seek bonds of oilier states, and
the only states now issuing bonds are
those like Mississippi and Montana,
that would otherwise find more or
less difficulty in floating their paper
at low rates.
This system of handling the state
school fund is costing the school chil
dren of Nebraska thousands of dol
lars every year. It Is high time that
the limitation on investment be ex
panded to Include the bonds of our
own school districts and of our own
municipalities, with proper safeguards
against defalcation on interest or prin
cipal. A settler on the Uintah reservation
declares that the Utes under Chief
Appah left that reservation because of
tho "grafts" worked upon them by
federal employes and other white men.
The aborigines will find that they
must make a long journey lf they
would leave "graft" behind.
