Napoleons of high finance and rep-
eBentallves of the speculative inter
ests who have been clamoring for some
fflcial expression to allay the nervous
ness ot Wall street, will get little con
solation from what President Roose-
elt said at Provincetown, Mass., on
occasion of the anniversary celebration
of the landing of the Pilgrims. In re
sponse to these frantic appeals for
some statement that would stamp out
hysteria, the president makes It ex
ceedingly plain that the administra
tion can not abandon its policy, but
must go ahead with Us work of reform
and law enforcement, to the end that
the country may be rid of the flagrant
abuses too long endured. At the same
time, he gives assurance that It was
the purpose of the administration fear
lessly to defend property against all
unjust attacks. "No individual, no
corporation obeying the law," the pres
ident declares, "has anything to fear
from this administration."
Reviewing the work and character
of the Puritan pilgrims, the president
notes principally the changed condi
tions of our national life and the ne
cessity for change in our laws and gov
ernmental methods. For five years the
administration has been pursuing a
policy toward the defiant corporations
deemed necessary to the future wel
fare of the nation. The president de
clares that experience has demon
strated the need of a far more efficient
control than at present "over the busi
ness use of those vast fortunes, mostly
corporate, which are used In Interstate
business." On that subject he uses
these words:
There Is no objection in the minds of
this people to any man's earning any
amount of money If he does It honestly and
fairly, If he gets It as the result of spe
cial skill and enterprise, as a reward of
ample service actually rendered. But there
a growing determination that no man
shall amass a great fortuno by special priv
ilege, by chicanery and wrong-doing, so
far as it is In the power of legislation to
prevent; and that the fortune when
amassed shall not have a business use that
Is anti-social.
As to his further program; the presi
dent declares in favor of a national in
corporation law, giving the federal
government a supervisory authority
over all Interstate corporations similar
to that now exercised over national
banks; laws permitting such useful
combinations as are made with abso
lute openness after approval by the
representatives of the government;
laws to punish trust offenders by Im
prisonment as well as by fine; more
liberal laws for the protection of em
ployes, and laws giving federal author
ities wider power over the public
While the president has offered no
strikingly new additions to his pro
gram for future legislation, his ad
dress Is significant as serving notice
on the country that there ,1s to be no
halting and no turning backfrom the
advance steps already taken. The ad
ministration, under President Roose
velt's direction, has worked an eco
nomic revolution, the effect of which
must be felt for years to come. The
establishment of publicity and fairer
methods of competition, the destruc
tion of the vicious system of rebates
and discriminations by railroads and
the enactment of laws for "a square
deal" In the great business institutiona
of the country are the triumphs of the
Roosevelt administration, and they
have been achieved without real in
Jury to legitimate property rights. No
one wants to return to the old regime
of rebates, discriminations, stock in
flation and nonenforcement of the law.
The work has been well accomplished
and the country will approve the pres
ident's course In determining for a res
olute continuance of his policies to
their logical conclusion.
The call ot the railroads for at least
1,000 men for immediate employment
In the coal mines ot Wyoming and
Utah, with the certainty of a more or
les8 pronounced shortage in the winter
fuel supply it the call is not answered,
serves to emphasize the abnormal con
dition ot the labor aupply of the coun
try. For Borne months there has been
almost a labor famine In the Industrial
centers of the east and, notwithstand
ing the unusually large immigration
arriving at New York each day, the de
mand for workmen far exceeds the
supply. The west la also beginning to
feel the shortage of labor, which Is
really the only factor in sight that
threatens to check its industrial ex
pansion. The largest steel plant in the world
will be opened at Gary, Ind., next
week, and 'the operation of the mills
and the business of the city which has
eprung up as the new plant has been
built, will call for more than 20,000
workmen of all grades. Steel trust offi
cials report greatest difficulty in secur
ing the help needed. Cripple Creek
has sent out a call for at least 1,000
miners, with assured wages ranging
from $3 to $6 a day and Bteady em
ployment. Attractive as this offer Is,
the mine owners have difficulty in re
taining working miners on account ot
the more urgent call, with higher
wages offered, from the gold fields ot
Nevada. From the Michigan copper
mining region cornea the complaint
that men can not be had ia sufficient
numbers to meet orders for larger
quantities of ore than it Is possible to
produce with the working forces ob
With the farms, factories, mills,
railroads and mines bidding against
each other for workers, tbe wage-
earner occupies an enviable position
While the immigration has been more
than 1,000,000 a year for several years
exceeding 1,800,000 ia 10, every
section of the country is still crying
for more help. The farmera are pro
ducing more cereals and other prod
ucts than ever before, the mineral out
put Is breaking all records, the rail
roads are hauling more merchandise
and every activity offers evidence of
steady, If not increasing, business. As
long as the "Help Wanted" sign Is out
the wheels of industry must be revolving.
It is hardly probable that anything
The Bee may say on the subject will
have any weight with the democratic
mayor and council in their determina
tion to ask the people to vote them
authority to issue $3,500,000 of bonds
with which to purchase the local gas
plant. The Bee is free to say that be
tween the purchase of the present
plant and the waste of several million
dollars in constructing a duplicate
plant for purposes of alleged competi
tion, It would favor the purchase
scheme. Aside from that, however,
it seems to us that the democratic
mayor and council would be putting
the cart before the horse, even It they
had the backing ot a unanimous pub
lic sentiment in favor ot the object to
be attained.
Why should Omaha be asked to vote
$3,600,000 of bonds to buy the pres
ent gas plant? Does anyone know
whether it can be bought within the
limit of $3,500,000, or whether
$3,500,000 is not a largely excessive
figure? Some years ago we voted
$3,000,000 in bonds to buy the water
works, but when the appraisement
came In it was for more than $6,000,
000 and the bonds have never been is
sued. The outcome of the water
works purchase proposition will be
either the voting of more bonds or an
extension of the contract with the
water company on more favorable
So far as purchasing the gas plant
Is concerned, Omaha is in exactly the
same position that It was with respect
to purchasing the water works. By
express terms ot the gas franchise or
dinance the city has reserved the right
to buy the plant at any time without
paying for franchise value. It may
buy either by appraisement, under the
three-appraiser plan, or by exercise of
the right of eminent domain. If the
appraisement plan were chosen the
city would name one appraiser, the
gas company another and the two
would select a third. If the right of
eminent domain were relied upon the
city would apply to the proper Judicial
tribunal, who would appoint all of the
appraisers on the nomination of the
city. In the first case the city would
probably be bound by the appraise
ment. In the second place it might
be free to approve or reject if the fig
ures were not satisfactory.
Any ordinary business man, expect
ing to buy a piece of property, would
find out what it waa to cost before
borrowing money to pay for it. If
the city of Omaha wants to buy the
local gas plant, why should we not
make the appraisement first and find
out whether a satisfactory price can
be had before voting bonds in any
sum that would be notice to the gas
company of how much we were will
ing to pay?
One candidate for the republican
nomination for county treasurer is re
ported to have already started out in
speephes before improvement clubs to
abuse The Bee and its editor, not with'
standing the fact that he has just
made several pilgrimages to The Bee
office begging for support. Inasmuch
as he is not on the political map it ia
hardly worth while to tell the people
the real foundation of his grievance.
The time limit for candidates to
withdraw primary filings haa expired

the goods.

The Need ot Automatic Printing; Tele
graph Instruments.
Springfield (Mass.) Republican.
The strike ot the telegraph operators
has doubtless suggested to many minds the
advance that would be made by the in
troduction of automatlo printing telegraph
instruments. The process of transmitting
Information by telegraph might then be re
duced by the elimination of two distinct
stages, that of sending the message in the
Morse oode and that of receiving It and
translating It back again, both of which
now require expert and practiced men. If
such instruments were In general use to
day the country would not be at the mercy,
as It is more or less, of these specially
trained men whose places are difficult to
fill. There would be one occupation less
In the world, but it Is unnecessary, at thts
lata hour to refute the false theory that
society suffers any real hurt In such ways
or that there Is any real reduction of op
portunity. The world progresses by the
elimination of unnecessary labor. But It
will probably come as a surprise to most
people to learn that a practical printing
telegraph Instrument was Invented and In
actual use In this country over fifty years
ago. This was House's printing telegraph
which was largely used In tha United
States until about 1860. It was simple in
principle though complicated In construc
tion. The letters of the alphabet, a period
and a blank, or twenty-eight spaces In all
were engraved on the rim of a type-wheel,
upon the shaft of which was a scape-wheel
of fourteen teeth. By means of a retracting
spring and an electric magnet the type
wheel could be revolved at will and any
desired letter be presented by breaking
and closing the eleotrlo circuit. But more
successful instruments have been Invented
since then and the automatic printing
telegraph or "ticker" which records the
stock market quotations and which Is In
every-day use uiil Instantly suggest Itself.
The "ticker" was originated In New Tork
In 1867, has been Improved by many In
ventors and Is In use all over the world
today, many hundreds or thousands of In
struments being operated by a single In
dividual at the central exchange. Rut
that House's automatlo telegraph for
ordinary messages went out of use must ot
course have been due to Its not being able
to oompet with the speed achieved by ex
pert aenders and receivers using the Morao
cod. Since then, however, there has been
a tremendous advance In electrical ap
paratus of every nature and It has b.n
said that the only reason why automatic
printing telegraph Instruments have not
already been put In general use In America
haa been the conservatism of vested and
practically monopolistic Interests. If this
Is true, today must b the dsy of regrets;
the two big telegraph companies must sigh
for the Inventions they are said to have
smothered. At all events necessity Is still
th mother of Invention and th present
strike must hasten the coming of the per
fected automatic machine which In Its final
form Will rrobably require at one end no
roor than the ability to strike th key
of a typewriter, while at the other end
of th wire It automatically records th

Ord Quia: They ought to elect more edi
tors and fewer lawyers to the legisla
ture. Lawyers are schooled In making
things as blind as possible, to use as many
words and convey as Indefinite Ideas as
they can. On tho other hand, editors are
schooled In the art of saying things clearly
and to the point with as little verbiage
as possible and with no ambiguity. Nearly
every law on the statute books Is capable
of sundry Interpretations, wherefrom the
lawyer In later years will get his money
back. Take, for Instance, the new law rela
tive to primary elections. It Is full of
ambiguities, absurdities and contradictions.
Sentences are mixed and probably trans
posed, and a Jumble generally Is made of
an effort to say something, but It Is hard
now to say what. It starts off to tell, In
one place, how the county clerk shall
prepare a written sample ballot to hang up
In his office and winds up with an obscure
description ot how the ballots shall be
printed, and It fails utterly to tell what
shall be done In the makeup of the bal
lot. It ever a thing needed editing it Is
the new primary ballot.
Beatrice Express: The public does not

They wired Melvln E. Stone, manager ot
the American Press association, that he
would be given twenty-four hours In which
to yield concessions of higher wagos and
shorter hours. Stone had no authority
to grant the request, and as the American
Press association la not St money-making
organization and carries no surplus, a plan
of Increasing wages would have to be
adopted to meet the demands if they were
conceded. Thus It was impossible, within
the time mentioned, to call together the
fifteen members of the board of directors
scattered In different parts of the country.
The operators were already receiving for
day work 10 per week and 60 cents per

at least have delayed Injury to the publio

Crete Democrat: The only way out
of the everlasting grind which aur
public school teachers have been placed
by the wild normal erase sweeping
over our country as a result of a deslra
on the part of the big headed superin
tendents to earn a salary during vacation,
ia for the colleges and universities to In
crease their facilities for Instructing teach
ers or prospective teachers In matters cov
ered by the aforesaid craze and thus relieve
the 'public of the heavy expense, and per
mit the over-worked and tired teachers at
the end of the school year to take a rest
and recuperate strength for the next year.
Hera we have a lot ot so-called junior
normals In different sections of the state
to which teachers must go and spend most
of their vacation listening to the peculiar
Ideas of the several wise superintendents
who are engaged by some other wise guy
to Instruct the tired teachers during the
hottest period of the year, In some new
fangled methods of teaching, which som
crank has evolved In his poorly balanced
belfry. That which a person needs In
order to teach Is, first, good home train
Ing; second, an education; third, govern
ment, neither of these can she or he get

cheap legislators at tha behest of design
ing superintendents to make a show and
earn some money. ' It costs the taxpayers
many thousands and does them no good.
Central City Democrat: State Superin
tendent McBrlen has been getting after
some school districts of the state that have
been suspected of padding their censuses,
with rather astonishing results. In 1905, for
Instance. Hastings came to the front with
a reported school population of 4,383. Tlie
enrollment of the schools showed up but
J.ZS8, which looked a little suspicious. Last
vear. belnir under fire, the census enumer
ator could find only 2.611 eliglbles to school
privileges In all the city, and as the en
rollment shows 2.S53, the census appears
reasonable. In Grand Island the census for
laos showed 2.6S6. while the enrollment in
th schools was only 1,630. Fremont and
Kearney have shown even greater discrep
ancies. As each on tho census rear
lot r la worth some S3 per year to the dls
trlct, it can easily be seen why a district
hmild make Its list as large aa pnssime
those mentioned apparently profiting by
from 11.000 to 13.000 per year by their little
deception. .There Is little chance for the
smaller districts to pad their censuses to
any appreciable degree, and the excess the
fraudulent districts get Is thus tanen irom
the smaller and weaker ones. We are glad
to see an effort made to stop this kind of
thieving from the public treasury and hope
it made entirely successrui. as
means to that end It might be a good thing

Over a ton of Arbuckles' Ariosa
Coffee is roasted at a time, in a largo

Coffee exceed the sales of all other

scientific roasting, which no othes

Katherlne Lyman In the Argonaut
He left so little, did you say?
He had so brief a time to stay,
'Twas hardly worth his while to gathet
Dross of our little earthly day.
The things that other people prise
He gave to others, being wise,
Being so heavenly foolish rather.
That kept his gains for Paradise, '
Hardly a keepsak did he leave.
And all his gold was fugitive.
He kept those things that will not perish.
For him th widow and orphan grlav.
He gave with a light laugh Indeed,
As he and gold were 111 agreed;
Held It the poorest thing to cherish,
Save that it filled another's need.
He had his Pilgrim's Scrip of Hope,
And Living Waters In his cup.
The Staff of Faith that stlli suffices
The stumbling soul to lift it up.
Being so soon a traveler,
Of earthly things he had no care;
But on the road that's Paradise's
He went the lighter, being bare.
