A CHANCE FOR HARR1MAN.
While Mr. Harrlman Is still in the
mood reflected by his Interview, con
fessing past mistakes and promising
better things in the future, he should
not overlook the opportunity presented
to him right here in Omaha and Ne
braska to make his professions good
by practice. Mr. Harrlman is quoted
We feel that we are now, all of us th
public, the government and the railway-eon
a common ground where we can deal
with each other In the right spirit I am
more than willing to give my support to
any such practices eff enlightenment. 1 am
ready to miuke tho advancement of such a
scheme of co-operation my chief Interest.
Railroad managers have, I am willing to
admit. In the past neglected to build up a
strong, harmonious relationship between
themselves, with the government and with
the public. This matter has been left to
subordinate officers and the result has been
thai, such relations have been completely
neglected. Now we must take the matter
In our own hands In order to bring about
a better understanding" and co-operation.
Let Mr. Harrlman and his Union
Pacific railroad begin his new policy
of friendly relations with the public
and co-operation with the government
right here and now.
Let him send word to Nebraska to
call off his hired legislative lobbyists
at Lincoln and remove the obstacles
his agents have set up to prevent the
enactment of legislation which Harrl
man, himself, must admit is salutary
Among the worst mistakes Mr. Har
rlman and his associates have made,
so far as cultivating cordial relations
with the public is concerned, was his
tefusal to pay the taxes assessed
against the Union Pacific railroad In
Nebraska and his unsuccessful appeal
to the federal courts to sanction this
attempt at tax evasion. Another mis
take equally Inexcusable is the present
attitude of the Union Pacific, in con
Junction with the other Nebraska
roads, fighting against terminal taxa
tion in order to perpetuate exemption
from city taxes of railroad properties
enjoying all the benefits of municipal
government. We do not believe Mr.
Harrlman would, himself, for a mo
ment contend that there Is any Justice
In such railway tax shirking, and he
certainly cannot expect to get into the
good graces of the people so long as
his railroad persists in making other
property owners pay their own taxes
and then pay taxes for the railroads
While Mr. Harrlman is In the mood,
too, let him rescind the order that has
been given to abandon preparatory
work for the erection of his new Union
Pacific headquarters building, so
urgently needed to accommodate offi
cers and employes. This building has
been promised repeatedly as part con
sideration for valuable concessions
given to the Union Pacific by the peo
pleof Omaha and repudiation of these
promises savors of breaking faith.
If Mr. Harrlman is looking for a
chance to make good, now Is the tlmex
and here Is the place.
THE ALDR1CII CURRENCY LAW. .
Since the adoption of the law estab
lishing the gold standard in the United
States, congress has been very slow in
considering measures looking to
further reforms in the country's cur
rency system. Experts of the Treas
ury department, committees of the
American Bankers' association and
other organizations have persistently
urged upon congress the need of ad
ditional legislation calculated to lend
elasticity to currency, to allow greater
leeway in the Investment of national
bank deposits, and other changes to
benefit the banking, industrial and
commercial Interests of the country.
Congress has refused to act upon any
of these measures until now, when the
enactment of the Aldrich currency bill
breaks the record of inactivity in cur
The Aldrich bill deals only with
features of the currency question gen
erally conceded to require additional
legislation. The author evidently un
derstood the feeling of hostility
against currency tinkering and re
frained from including in his bill any
of the more or .less radical reforms,
so-called, that have been so strongly
urged by organizations formed for thej
purpose of securing currency legisla
tion. The principal feature of the new
law provides that $9,000,000 in na
tional bank notes may be retired in
any one month, instead of $3,000,000,
as at present. The argument in sup
port of this is that banks should not
be required to pay a tax on a large cir
culation In months when there is little
demand for money, but should be al
lowed to increase or retire their cir
culation to meet commercial demands
and emergencies. Another provision
allows the secretary of the treasury to
issue gold certificates in small denomi
nations, thus Increasing the number
of small bills in circulation without
affecting the total of the gold certifi
The bill authorizes the secretary of
the treasury to deposit all government
receipts in national banks, without dis
tinguishing between customs and In
ternal revenue. Under the existing
law, passed years ago to maintain the
value of government securities payable
In gold, the customs receipts have been
held In treasury. The secretary may
now deposit all government receipts
with designated depositories, retaining
only a "sufficient working balance" in
the vaults of the Treasury department
at Washington. The amount of gov
ernment money on deposit in national
banks is about $162,000,000. which
may be about doubled at seasons of
An effort to amend the bill to re
quire the banks-to pay Interest on
these deposits was defeated In the sen
ate. A strong safeguard remains,
however, in the provision which au
thorizes the secretary to withdraw any
or all of the government deposits from
national banks at any time. The wise
exercise of this authority should ena
ble the banks to have ample funds for
legitimate business purposes and at
the same time prevent them from tak
ing advantage of large accumulations
for speculative purposes.
AS TO A CONSTITUTIONAL CONTENTION-
The Bee will frankly admit that it Is
not in accord with the move on foot
in the legislature to submit a proposi
tion for calling a constitutional con
vention to frame a new constitution
for Nebraska. Most of the lawyers in
the legislature would, doubtless, like
to serve in a constitutional convention
and some of them might shine in such
a body, but a constitutional conven
tion would not only be costly, but
would open up a multitude of issues
andcontentlons that would seriously
disturb the state.
The present constitution contains
many valuable and praiseworthy pro
visions, particularly those for the pro
tection of the public against corporate
encroachment, which the railroads
would surely try to eliminate and which
the people would not want to risk
losing. The really needed changes, on
the other hand, can be obtained by
specific amendment adopted In a man
ner similar to the railway commission
amendment of last year without open
ing the door to all sorts of freak isms
and corporation trickery.
The projection of the constitutional
convention scheme at the present time
evidently has also a second object,
namely, to block all proposed amend
ments now pending. It should not be
allowed to have this effect, even were
the convention to be favored, because
revision by convention cannot be ac
complished short of four years,
whereas amendments submitted by
this legislature can be adopted and
become operative within two years.
The enlargement of the supreme
court, the readjustment of the gov
ernor's salary, the safeguarding of the
school fund investments, authority for
complete municipal home rule, should
be provided for at once, separate and
apart from the chance of a consti
tutional convention. On these sub
jects the legislature Is in position it
self to act and it will be derelict if it
does not act.
THE MANILA INCIDENT REVIVED'
Senor Pinay Millet, the new Spanish
minister ajWashington, has replied to
the recent assertion of Admiral Dewey
that Providence aided the Americans
in the battle of Manila bay. Senor
Millet Insists that "it Dewey won a
victory over our fleet by divine aid. I
think it must be the god of war that
assisted, him. and that aid that steel
and armor can give in conquering
wood." The dispatch quoting the
senor's statement adds that the dig
was given in good nature and with the
expression of hope that the friendship
between the United States and his gov
ernment has been cemented perma
With the ninth anniversary ot the
battle of Manila bay but a few weeks
away, nothing can be accomplished by
any attempt to revive the argument as
to the causes of the American triumph
in foreign waters, but It will be diffi
cult to convince the land lubber that
either Admiral Dewey or Senor Millet
is correct in ascribing the result ot
the conflict to anything but naval
superiority. Appropriations for the
Spanish navy had been expended for
the enrichment of official spoilers in
the navy and other branches of the
government, while the American ap
propriations had been used for steel
and armor and fighting equipment.
Furthermore, the Spanish were handi
capped by a lack of that valor ot
middies that ran riot through Dewey's
fleet and has made the American navy
invincible in every emergency.
That is the real explanation of the
victory In Manila bay and the United
States is too busy with other affairs
to reopen the case for the considera
tion of new evidence or arguments.
ADOPTING AMERICAN IDEAS
By a vote which, while far from de
cisive, must be considered significant
as a test of sentiment, the British
House ot Commons has taken the first
long step toward the acceptance ot the
American idea of the proper relations
between church and ' state complete
separation. Although a majority of
the members of the House of Com
mons was lacking at the time the vote
was taken, the test showed 198 affirm
atives to 90 negatives on a resolution
favoring the disestablishment of the
Anglican church in England and
Wales. The ministry took no part in
the vote or discussion, although one
member of the cabinet, Mr. Birrell,
the secretary for Ireland, declared
that the state had gained nothing by
connection with the church and he be
lieved the church would be far better
off if separated from the state.
This sentiment for the divorce of
church and state has been a plant of
slow growth in England, but It prom
ises now rapidly to reach maturity
and blossom into effective action: It
will naturally be opposed in the House
of Lords, where the prelates are recog
nized and have representation with
the peers, but indications are that the
movement now on foot for reorganiz
ing the House ot Lords will leave the
prelates without effective representa
tion In that body. The adoption of
such a plan would hasten the final ac
tion for the separation.
The proposed disestablishment is but
another concession to public opinion,
which, In the long run, is as potent
with monarchies as with republics.
The Church of England has lost its
popular hold and Is now outnumbered
and surpassed In Influence and energy
by the nonconformists and other
Protestant bodies that really represent
the liveliest part of the British popula
tion. The state reasons for the estab
lishment and support of the Church
of England have disappeared and the
organization Is now in the minority
and, in some sections of England and
Wales, In positive disfavor.
As a refill It, the sentiment is grow
ing that all churches whose practices
are not opposed to public good are
entitled to government protection;
creeds, forms and particular beliefs
are matters which belong to the peo
ple and with which the state has no
concern. The established form in Eng
land is, in effect, a governmental dis
crimination against the adherents of all
religions and creeds other than the
Church of England, and the protest
against this discrimination cannot
much longer go unheeded. Modern
ideas of Justice demand equal rights
and equal privileges for religious de
nominations and England cannot much
longer refuse to recognize the drift
toward equality in all matters affect
ing church and state. The American
idea on this subject Is eternally right
and must eventually prevail, in Eng
land and everywhere.
A MEMORIAL TO CARL SCHURZ.
While appeals for popular subscrip
tions for a suitable memorial to Carl
Schurz have not met with the liberal
response that was hoped, friends of
the movement are not daunted but are
laying new plans for raising $250,000
for the purpose of erecting a bronze
or marble memorial to the memory of
the German-American, who as sol
dier; editor, senator and cabinet of
ficer played such a prominent part In
American public affairs during the try
ing times of the civil war and the
years following it.
As public official and author, Mr.
Schurz did more perhaps than any
other one man to promote a wide ap
plication of the principles of civil serv
ice reform and that at a time when
both political parties were wedded to
the claim that "to the victor belongs
the spoils." He led in the work of pro
moting Germanic culture In the United
States and was the pioneer in demand
ing recognition of the rights of the
Indians, whose property holdings had
long beenv looked upon as 'common
prey. He was a leader In many of the
reform movements of his time and en
couraged and fought for them when
it meant abuse and derision from al-
v.ft. a......, null w n n
rne enorts oi tne scnurz memorial
committee should be rewarded with
abundant success, but Carl Schurz will
have a place in history more enduring
than any bronze or marble statue that
may be erected to his memory. It would
serve the purpose better if the fund
raised by the committee could be used
to endow some institution for the fur
ther advancement and perfection of
the living principles to the champion
ship of which Mr. Schurz gave so many
years of his active life.
AN OPTIMISTIC A POTHEOSIS.
Predictions of the coming of the mil

themselves by tomorrow or next day.
Wall street has been weaned of its
appetite and the meek and lowly lamb
may find other places for rest and
comfort than in the shadow ot the big
stick. The federal grand Jury may re
sume its duty of killing time and draw
ing per diem, and the United States
attorneys may catch up on the sleep
they have missed in the last four
years. The shipper will no longer have
to hire a corps of lawyers and a squad
of detectives to aid him in securing
privileges extended to his rivals and
the lobbyist and the "representative
of the legal department" will have to
go to work for a living. The modest
investor of his . savings In corporate
securities will share the usufruct with
the expert organizer of blind pools in
Wall street. Stock watering again will
be recognized as an agricultural and
not a financial pursuit and melon cut
ting again will be done with a knife
Instead of with a check book. A, plain
citizen, so long as he behaves him

So long as European railroads are
run with such a small percentage of
casualties American railroad opera

country cannot be reduced by the ex

According to the statistician of the
Interstate Commerce commission, to
make a detailed and accurate valua
tion of the physical property of the
railroads oi the United States would
cost the government $1,250,000. If
such an appraisement would bring
within the taxing Jurisdiction all the
railroad property that now evades tax
ation it would be worth the money and
the outlay would be more than reim
bursed the very first year.
