Dr. Charle F. Aked, the newly Im
ported New York pastor, and Luther
Burbank, the plant expert, bare both
sounded warnings within the week
against dangers which threaten the fu
ture of the American people. Dr. Aked,
fresh from Europe, devoted bis first
sermon to discussing the immigration
question as presenting a problem for
solution by the American people. lie
spoke pointedly of the menace to the
nation's future which Is a part of the
cargo of each Immigrant-laden vessel
arriving at our ports. "It 1b a ques
tion," Bald Dr. Aked. "whether the
primal American stock Is vitiated by
the interpermeatton of an Inferior
race," and he urged great caution In
the admission of - Immigrants and in
their education and . Instruction after
their admission. , ,
Prof. Burbank sees a similar danger,
but he has a different remedy, , "We
are more crossed," says he, "than any
other nation In the history of the world
and her we meet the same results that
are always seen In a much crossed race
of plants,' all the worst as well as all
the best qualities of each are brought
out In their fullest intensities." Prof.
Burbank would have plant cultivation
methods adpoted In population rearing,
crossing and development, combining
by gradual process the hothouse speci
mens with the hardy outdoor wild
plants, to the final production of per
fect species. Some such method, he
Insists, is essential to the saving of
Americans of the future from the evil
Influences that come over with the Im
migrants from inferior European
Both Dr. Aked and Prof. Burbank
are worrying themselves needlessly
about the dangers that threaten the
"primal American Btock." The "lnter-
permeatlon" of the races has been
going on since the days, now being
celebrated at Jamestown, when the
Anglo-Saxon landed in Virginia, for
permanent settlement. The "lnterper-
meatlon" has been going on for about
$00 years. The broadened field of op
portunity in America has furnished un
limited opportunity for the Immigrant
to throw off and overcome his "inferi
ority" and he has taken advantage of
It to an extent which robs the warnings
of racial alarmists of their terrors.
OPTIMISM OF THE QOVLDS.
George Oould and his associates In
the railroad business have refused to
share any of the gloomy forebodings
of other railway financiers as to the
outlook for either the Immediate or
remote future of the transportation in
terests In this country. "The one great
problem which confronts all of the rail
roads," says Mr. Oould, "la to furnish
facilities to handle the business of the
country, which is growing at an un
precedented rate and is already taxing
the .facilities of transportation com
panies beyond their limit. I have no
fears for the future. The country was
never so prosperous nor the outlook bo
bright as at the present time." Mr.
Oould adds an endorsement of Presi
dent Roosevclt'B railway policy and ex
presses a belief that good would result
from the adoption of some system of
Judicious government supervision over
Issues of railway securities.
Moreover, Stuyvesant Fish, recently
elected a member of the board of di
rectors of the Oould system of rail
roads, furnishes evidence In an inter
view that they Oould optimism Is to
take the form of deeds, rather than
words. He explains that Mr. Oould
proposes to commence the general re
construction of the railroads of his
entire system, Intending to spend about
$100,000,000 a year for this purpose,
the work to extend over a period of ten
years. This is no philanthropic move
on the part of the Goulds. They simply
recognize that the country grldtroned
by their rails has developed a traffic
far beyond the possibilities of existing
facilities and that lmprovementsmust
be made to care properly for the busi
ness offered at profitable rates. The
determination of the Goulds to. spend
a vast sum of money in Improving their
roads is proof that they see no possi
bility of a serious halt In the progress
of prosperity. t .
President Zelaya of Nicaragua ap
parently Is taking a mean advantage
of the fact that Secretary Taft, the
political diplomatist of the administra
tion at Washington, has engagements
that will keep him busy for several
months. Under such conditions, the
Nlcaraguan president is openly refus
ing to be satisfied with any peace prop
ositions offered by the United States
authorities looking to a settlement of
the troubles growing out of the latest
Central American revolution.
The trouble arises over the refusal
of Honduras to pay the expense of
being whipped by Nicaragua. Not satis
fled with achieving a victory over the
Hondurans and driving President B6-
nllla into exile, the president of Nlca
ragua has filed a claim for Indemnity
la which he asks Honduras to pay all
the cipenses of both parties to the
contest. Honduras refused, and ap
pealed to President Roosevelt, who ad
vised Zelaya to make peace with Hon
duras and cut out the money consider
ation. Zelaya answers with a defiant
refusal to modify his terms and Inti
mates that the Nlcaraguan forces will
be marching on Washington unless
President Roosevelt backs down.
This bu since of policing Central and
South America is getting to be a pretty
big job even tor Uncle Sam. As soon
as one Insurrection or revolution Is
suppressed trouble breaks out fa the
next block, and Mr. Taft cannot be In
more than three or tour place at once.
It Is hoped war with Nicaragua may
be averted, particularly as we are right
on the eve of an International peace
conference at The Hague and also be
cause the American volunteers will
soon be needed In the harvest fields.
It might be a good scheme to get
Santo Domingo, Venezuela, Cuba, Nica
ragua, Salvador, Honduras and other
South and Central American countries
to agree upon a schedule, like a base
ball league, so that trouble would not
be breaking out In more than one place
at the same time.
TRJC HIQIIKR PRICK LEVELS
The bureau of labor at Washington
has Just completed the compilation of
statistics secured from a wide Investi
gation Into the cost of living for the
year 106. The figures now published
relate to wholesale prices, and the
bureau Is at work upon returns show
ing retail prices which will be printed
In July. The consumer will not be sur
prised to learn that the wholesale
prices of living commodities are still
Increasing and are higher than at any
other time in the seventeen-year period
covered by the bureau's Investigations.
Wholesale prices on 258 commodities
reached a higher level In 1906 than
at any other period since 1889. The
average for the year was S.6 per cent
higher than for 1905, 86.6 per cent
higher than for 1897 and $2.4 per cent
higher than the average for the ten
years ending with 1899.
The investigations by the bureau in
cluded prices of farm products, food,
clothes and clothing, fuel and lights,
building material, drugs and chemicals,
furniture and house furnishings and all
of the necessities of living. In but two
groups was a decrease in prices shown
In 1906, compared with 1905, in farm
products and drugs and chemicals. The
average price of farm products in 1906
was but one-half of 1 per cent less
than for 1906, not enough to make
any appreciable difference In the
family's butter, egg and milk bills.
Food as a whole Increased $.6 per cent
over the average prices for 190S, the
increases being In fish, fruit, hog prod
ucts, rice, milk and vegetables. Minor
decreases were shown in coffee, eggs,
beef, sugar, flour and tea. These de
creases were In wholesale prices only
and were not noticed In retail prices.
Of the seventy-five articles Included In
the clothing group, Blxty-slx showed an
increase In price, five were stationary
and only four showed a decrease. Coal
and fuel prices Increased and there was
a big boost In metals, building ma
terials and all articles entering Into
house construction and house furnish
ing. Officials of the bureau of labor make
no attempt to explain the causes of the
rise and fall of prices, explaining that
the causes "are too complex, the rela
tive Influence of each too uncertain, In
Borne cases involving too many eco
nomic questions to permit their dis
cussion In an article dealing only with
the facts and figures." The consumer,
however, as his own explanation of
the causes. While he may blame some
to trust combination and the manipula
tion of prices In food supplies, he
knows that the old law of supply and
demand Is working overtime. With
work for every man, at advanced
wages, with an nnequaled export de
mand, with the population Increased
greatly by natural growth and Immi
gration, the mills and factories and
farms have been overtaxed to supply
eager customers waiting with cash In
hand. The people are buying more and
better goods than ever before and In
creased prlc98 are Inevitable until the
factories and farma get ahead of the
demands upon them.

The Inviolable freedom of the press

contribution, offering $2 for this purpose.
A list of most excellent law passed by th
late legislature I probably th most fitting
monument to the memory of Edward Rose
water, for no one did more to help along
the cause of reform In Nebraaka than he.
For years he fought "a good fight" and
gradually the leaven of hi Influence
through Nebraska' greatest newspaper
did it work. He waa greatly chagrined
over the loss of the senatorehip. but no one
waa more pleased over the recruits of the
last republican state convention than he,
both aa to platfrom and nominees. W can
almost hear him yet In that memorable
speech after hi defeat pledging aupport to
Brown, In which he said: "Let us writ
'Integrity over the door of ourt state
house." And again In that last memorable
speech at the Grand Army of the Re publlo
reunion on the very day of hi death, he
aid: "You want to stand up for- Ne
brsska and for the nation; you want to
help us emancipate this great state from
corporate control, and now I the hour.
The hour I come because th struggle I
on; becauew these giant corporations are
not content merely to have fair men In
publlo office; not merely to be treated
fairly, honorably and Justly, but they want
tool. Instead of giving us oak and hick
ory In the state house, they gav us hazel
brush and willow. 1 1 axel brush and willow
w have had, and, thank God, we are going
to have at least one man (Sheldon) In that
state house within the next six months,
that la made of oak or hickory, yea, of Iron
wood." That very night death overtook hrm,
but who will say he had not done his part
and more to bring abcut the reform laws
of which Nebraska la so proud today. A
monument of stone! Tes. If you wWh, but
a greater monument Is cherished In the

A LAZT LIVER
May be only a tired liver, or a starred liver. It would be a stupid s
well as savage thing to bent a weary or starved man because he lapsed
in his work. So In treating the lagging, torpid liver it is great
mistake to lash it with strong drastic drugs. A torpid liver is but an
indication of an ill-nourished, enfeebled body whose organs are weary
with over-work. Start with the stomach nnd allied organs of digestion
and nutrition. Tut them in working order and see how quickly your
liver will become active. Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery haa
made many marrelo.is cures of "liver complaint," or torpid liver,
by its wonderful contM over the organs of digestion and nutrition. Itl
restores the normal activity of the stomach, increases the secretions oil
the blood-making glands, cleanses the system of poisonous accumu4
lations, and so relieves the liver of the burdens imposed upon it by tho:
defection of other organs.
Symptoms. If yon have bitter or
bad taste in the morning, f oor or vari

constipated or irregular bowels, feel
weak, easily tired, despondent, frequent
headaches, pain or distress in "small of
back," gnawing or distressed feeling in
stomach, perhaps nausea, bitter or sour
"risings" in throat after eating, and
kindred symptoms of weak stomaeh
and torpid liver, or biliousness, no
medicine will relieve you more promptly
or enre you more permanently than
Dr. Tierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
Perhaps only a part of the above symp
toms will be present at one time and

Where Pocahontas strung her beads
Beside her wlirwam door,
And Captain Smith with rapture halle
The green and wooded shore.
Lo! all the nations of the earth
Krlng treasures, rich and rare.
To where Virginia sits In state
And holds the Jamestown fair.
Where long ago tho painted brave
Propelled his birch cance.
The fleets of mighty naval powers)
Are snehored on the blue;
A thousand silken Imnners gay !
Are fluttering In the air,
And batteries from every ship
Salute the Jamestown fair.
It Is Virginia's proudest day
Three centuries of renown
In war and peare have won for hsr
A fadelesa laurel crown.
The frulte of all her year of toll
Are proudly garnered there
Beneath the countless clustered roottf
That mark the Jamestown fair.
From Indian tepees she ha reared
The palaces of trade,
From strings of savage wampum shU
The gold of commerce made.
The smoke from her tobacco crop
Is fragrant everywhere,
And like an asure aureole
Surrounds the Jamestown fair.
Virginia Is "at home" today
Among the glittering spires
Arising from the ashes g-ay
Of ancient council fires,
And ready to receive her friend
With pride beyond compare,
Bhe open wide her spaclou gates
Behold L the Jamestown fair.
