The west should feel a special in
terest in the national corn exposition
in Chicago which will continue until
October 19. About half of the fortr
slx states In the union, giving Okla
homa the credit of being a near-state,
are represented by exhibits, and every
subject of interest or benefit to the
producers of this great cereal will be
discussed. The Department of Agri
culture will be represented by experts,
who will demonstrate the results of
the latest experiments and tests for
the improvement of the quality and
yield of the staple. Incidentally, the
best ways of preparing corn for its
proper share in the list of food pro
ducts for the table will be Illustrated.
The exposition Is a proper tribute
to the imperial crop gf America. Corn
Is king, despite the determined efforts
of rivals to usurp the throne. The
south Insists upon loyalty to cotton,
as the greatest source of national
wealth derived from the soil, but the
statistics refute the claims of the pre
tender. The cotton crop for the pres
ent year is estimated at $600,000,000,
while the Department of Agriculture
figures the corncrop for 1907 at $1,
166,000,000, or nearly three times
the value of the cotton yield. Hay,
one of the courtiers 'in King Corn's
court, is valued at almost as much as
the cotton crop, while wheat, generally
recognized as the Indispensable cereal,
is of a, little less value, measured In
dollars, than the hay crop and a little
more than the cotton supply.
About four-fifths of the world's corn
supply is raised in the United States,
the production for the present year
in this country amounting to some
2.500,000,000 bushels. Most of this Is
grown In the central western states.
Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Mis
souri, the Dakotas and Minnesota,
while Ohio, Indiana, Pennsylvania and
a few others produce corn in quanti
ties equal to their Immediate demands.
The chief purpose of the corn ex
position in Chicago is to evolve plans
for enlarging the world's market for
corn. Last year we exported 120,000,-
000 bushels more than any year since
1900, when the shipments to foreign
countries amounted to 213,000,000.
Only a limited amount of missionary
work has been done to educate foreign
countries to the use of corn products
as food. Its marked nutritive value
and its cheapness, as compared with
wheat, will, it is believed, create a
new and enlarged demand for it when
the foreigners are more fully ac
quainted with its merits. The subject
is one In which the entire west should
feel a special interest.
While the New . York Sun, the
New, , York World Captain Richmond
Pearson Hobson,, j Senator . "Bobbie'.'
Taylor end a few , other alarmists,' are
persistently insisting that the dispatch
of ' the fleet of American . battleships
to Pacific waters is to serve as a sig
nal of war with Japan, the Japanese,
with an enlightment that ought to
shame some Americans, have another
view of the situation. The Japanese
Advertiser, published 'at Yokohama
and recognized as a semi-official repre
sentative of the Japanese rulers, in
discussing the proposed, transfer of
the fleet to the Pacific, in a recent
issue, said:
The wladom of such balancing of power
has long been patent, paying aside all
question of International relations, a coun
try should have Its means of defense evenly
distributed. The Atlantic coast defenses
have now been developed to a fair degree
of efficiency. The Pacific coast,-a seaboard
of tremendous importance, not alone 1 in
present population and wealth, but also
in potentiality of unprecedented develop
ment, a growth of solid permanence, at
the rata of a mushroom, is almost bare. The
detached territories of Alaska and Hawaii
would be at the' mercy of a fleet of nun
chantman armed with field pieces, Tha
Philippines, with all their incipient wealth,
are mora Isolated and hardly better pro
tected. In tha Atlaotlo lies Idle a great
fleet soon to become the second in, the
wortd. Could any sane mind ratify the
keeping of it off tha protected shores of
a compact, aettled part of the country
while the shores waahed by the wavea of
tha future lay bar as Crusoe's island?
The argument offered by the Japan
ese paper Is obvious and Incontroverti
ble. It makes the howls of the New.
York papers look-silly and childish.
It should be embarrassing to them,
however, to have to take a lesson in
American patriotism and administra
tive wisdom from a foreign source.
When Governor Magoon found it
necessary recently to imprison certain
Cuban "generals" fof conspiracy
against the Cuban government and the
officials of the "Second American Occu
pation," an effort was made by the
sensational press to show that certain
Wall street interests had fomented
the conspiracy to embarrass the Amer
ican administration , at Washington.
Governor Magoon's official report puts
a quietus on this silly canard, but it
also throws a new and significant light
on the disturbed conditions prevailing
In Cuba. .
The formal Indictment against the
men arrested charges them with a
plot to overthrow the provisional gov
ernment and to "destroy property of
foreigners, excepting Spaniards, and
to burn bridges and kill Americans."
The American officials are disposed to
believe that the words "excepting
Spaniards" were used in the plot to dl-,
vert suspicion or create race hatred, but
there is no question of the fact that
the .plotters had a scheme for as
sault upon the American resident of
the island and possibly upon the Amer
ican troops. .
The Indictment serves to illustrate
the constant need of military forces
on the island. NVhen the United plates
rescued the affairs of CuAia in 1888
from 'he "tyranny of Sialn,". cery
possible showing was made by the
Cubans of their gratitude and loyalty,
with the understanding that they were
to take the management of the re
public Into their bands. The
experiment was tried too soon. It
is now believed and resulted disas
trously. To give Cuba another trial
the army was sent to Havana again.
The strong rule of Governor Magoon
has kept the Insurgents and discon
tented under cover pretty well, but
the old spirit of anarchy. Is still strong
among the Cuban "patriots" who
want no government they cannot con
trol with the possibilities of loot.
The Cubans have yet to learn the
absolutely essential and invariable
connection between peace and pros
perity. Until they learn this lesson
any withdrawal of the army of occu
pation would be a signal for further
insurrection. Planters and foreigners,
who control most of the industries of
Cuba, appreciate the situation, and
are already petitioning for abandon
ment of all plans for another Cuban
election, preliminary to setting up
another native government. , It seems
to be a situation where we must hold
on because we can't let go.
The compiled figures showing the
registration to date of voters in
Omaha point to an exceeding light
vote in November unless the shortage
is made good on the final registration
day. With. two out of the three reg
istration days passed, less than 9,000
voters have beon enrolled for the
whole city of Omaha, which is not
more than 40 per cent of the total
number of voters entitled to partici
pate in the choice of public officers.
The second day's registration, in par
ticular, is the most disappointing, be
ing but a little over 3,000 and more
than 2,000 short of the first day's reg
istration. To get anywhere near a
full vote registered would require the
third day to bring out as many as the
flrBt two days together.
The shortness of the registration is,
doubtleso, due In some part to the
changes made in the law, already ex
plained by The Bee. Many people
who voted at the primary and neg
lected to register at the same time are,
doubtless, laboring under the impres
sion that nothing more is required of
them. While the intention was to
make voting at the primary self-operative
for registration, the law does not
specifically say bo. The important
point now, however, Is to impress
every one who has not yet registered
that only one more opportunity re
mains and that the next and last reg
istration day comes on Saturday, Oc
tober 26. This 1b a weok earlier than
heretofore and gives ten days for
checking up and verifying registration
after the Jboyks shall have been closed.
Failure to register amounts to disfran
chisement. ' ."' 1 -. -
If Omaha Is to, make anything like
a creditable showing In the election
and be a real factor in the state con
test our people will have to see to It
that a better registration record . is
made on the last registration day.
The construction of a new cathedral
as the religious center of the Roman
Catholic church In Omaha, for which
the cornerstone has just been laid, Is
significant In a two-fold way. In the
first place, It reflects the march ot
progress and prosperity attending the
growth of the city and making the old
cathedral Inaccessible by reason of new
surroundings. - In the second place, it
Indicates the steadily Increasing
strength of the church and its mem
bership, collectively and individually.

Roman Catholic citizens have kept con

The democratic World-Herald is

indicating that the republicans are

only hope of the democrats rests on
imaginary republican dissension and
division and the democratic organ is
showing its disappointment already.

hold himself in reserve for emergency
services If required.
The comparative freedom of the city
from criminal depredations during Ak-Sar-Ben

good behaviour of the carnival fan

the local police. Street carnivals else

It Is not so long ago that Editor
John C. Sprecher was a statesman and

other things. .
Caleb Powers has been in jail seven

any more.
The prominent part in the cathedral
dedicating ceremonies taken by the
South. Omaha contingent affords an
other demonstration .of the real soli
darity of the two cities. South Omaha
Catholks are just as muvh interested
in the new cathedral as are the Cath
olics of any Omaha parlBh. In fact,
the church recognizes no line ot de
markattan resting on the separation
of, the two cities. This object lesson
teaches that It's all one Greater Omaha
and that the Catholics who live In
South Omaha are coming to realize it.

New Orleans Tlmea-Democrat.
The platform adopted by the Nebraska
republicans at their atate convention in
Lincoln last Tuesday contains a plank that
is . calculated to cause- aurprtsa In many
quarters and may be taken as indicative
of the popular sentiment that 'has been
roused by the recent Interference with
state 'authoritlea ifcr tha federal courts.
After indorsing Secretary Taft aa tha log
ical successor of President Roosevelt, and
Insisting upon a continuance of the Rooae
velt policies, the (convent ion Incorporated
in Its platform thla significant clause:
We favor tha enactment of a federal
law. and It necessary an amendment to the
federal constitution which will forbid the
federal courts from Issuing writs of In
junction against atate officers charged with
the enforcement of . the state stalutea.
Such a declaration, coming from a north
ern and normally republican atate, la little
short of remarkable. It aervea to show
how deeply the popular feeling has been
stirred by the recent usurpations of the
federal Judgea. - Following as it Joes tha
endorsement of the Roosevelt policies, it
may be suggested that' there la a slight
dissonance ' between the two expressions.
While Attorney General Bonaparte baa
been discreetly silent throughout the con
troversy between the states and the fed
oral judgea, the concert of action Indi
cates that the judges are pursuing a course
tacitly agreed to by the administration;
for tba Judgea would bardly ears to take
the risks of serious- embarrassment with
out the assurance? ef administration sup
port. But tha Nebraska republicans have
discreetly ignored the apparent Inconsist
ency In their platform, and It la Icglcal
to assume that tha plank apposing the Is
suance of federal writs against "state of
ftcers charged with tha enforcement of
State statutes" has been adopted In obe
dience to the strong popular demand for
an expression upon the subject
Western republican leaders have evi
dently been quick to perceive that this
question of Judicial interference with tha
statea muat become an Issue in the next
campaign. Having gauged the popular
feeling on the matter, tha Nebraskana have
apparently determined to anticipate the
democratic platform by an explicit demand
for the establishment of limits for the au
thority of the . minor federal judgea
Whether the republican national conven
tion will have tha courage to take a simi
lar stsnd or whether H will endeavor to
"straddle" the Issue remains to be seen,
but the fact Utal tha republicans of a state
that Is normally so strongly republican
have unequivocally denounced the encroach
ment of federal courts is most encouraging,
for It shoos that popular feeling on the
subject la be-oin I ng aa thoraughl aroused
in the n'.'itli as In tl south.
Carrent Events cleaned from tha

Most favorable reports are being received
from prominent senators and representa
tives who have expressed themselves con
cerning the bill for lucresse of service pa".
If there Is ar.y objection to the measure
among the nv-inbers of the next congress
It has not been disclosed. The present pros
pects, therefore, ate entirely on the side of
the cnttetment of the measure. Those who
are engaged in accumulating Information
bearing upon the bill continue to receive
statistics which should be of Influence with
congress. The most striking comparison It
Is possible to make Is a stntement of the
psy and allowances of the I'nlted States
army ss compared with that of enlisted
men tot correpor.dtng iosllljn In the Ca
nadian army.
The suggcKtlon has been made that en
listed men of the army be permitted to
wear civilian clothing when thoy are "on
pass" to the rnd that thry may not feel
tiiemselves conxpicuoua wlien not on duty
and when away from tnelr stations. Thoss
who advocate this proposition believe that
It will have Its decided Influence upon en
listment as well as encouraging re-enlistments,
results greatly to be. desired. It is
n user ted that many soldiers desire the priv
ilege of wearing civilian clothing under the
conditions described and that some of them
even make the change of costume when
they visit the towns or cities near their
posts. If this Is the rase and It has any
such value ns Is described by those who
ought to know, It would appear that the
military authoritlea may. very easily take
a step which promises to be of such de
cided advantage. This would assist In solv
ing the vexatious problem of compelling
respect lor the army uniform by getting
rid of any question of Its proper recogni
tion. It is only natural thnt enlisted men
should desire to avoid attracting attention,
and their wishes In the direction might
very well be observed. -
The army quartermasters who have to do
with military clothing and equipage are
keenly Interested In the action of congress
at the next session upon the estimate which
has been approved by the secretary of war
In favor of an appropriation of $5,500,000
for military material needed i during the
next fiscal year. It was expected that the
secretary of war would reduce the estimate
from the quartermaster general's office, but
It was plainly shown to him that the fund
was greatly needtd. Inasmuch as the 'stock
of clothing Is depicted and there are no
means of replenishing It. Last year the ap
propriation amounted to $3,400,000 nnd the
year before to but $3,000,000. For this rea
son the withdrawal of clothing has been
steady, with disastrous effects upon the
reserve supply.
The 'War department Is on the track of
an army officer against whom evidence has
been obtained "that outside influence la
perhaps being UBcd" by him to obtain a
change of station. The Incident has been
under discussion by the general staff, where
it was recognlied ot once aa coming within
the prohibitions of the executive order
which with due aolemnlty admoniahea of
ficers to refrain from employing Influence
which shall, obtain for them any sort of
favor. The recommendation approved by
the War department was "that the officer
be called upon for an explanation." These
Instances possess an interest In showing
that if an officer wants to resort to out
side aid in getting a detail or obtaining
any favor, he ahould employ enough in
fluence of a sort which cannot be resisted
and which will protect hlra from trouble.
The, people who obey a presidential order
f this sort are those who have not enough
Influence to raaka it worth while to. engage
It. Other . people who can do something
with their Influence need have no fear of
any official rebuke,
The coming test of horsemanship In the

est not only for those who will participate
In this event, but for Ita invitation to con
jecture respecting the fata of those officers
of the army who fall to achieve the fifteen
miles of varied gait exacted In the regula
tions. Of course, it Is out of the question
to try the delinquents by court martial, and
there Is no provision of law which would
justify the summary retirement of an of
ficer who falls by the wayside, literally or
metaphorically. It Is possible that cuch an
unfortunate would be ordered before a re
tiring board, but there Is no assurance that
the medical officers who must pass upon
the fitness for service will report the ob
ject of their scrutiny as entitled to retire
ment. The military authorities are dis
creetly silent upon this subject.
An Important circular letter Is being sent
out by, the paymaster general of the navy
to all general storekeepers and purchasing
pay officers. It refers to a subject of gen
eral Interest to the aervlce and will relieve
officers of the necessity of obtaining from
their landlords signed receipts for fuel al
lowances :
"Aa after October I receipts will not be
taken for paymenta made by check. It will
not be necessary after that date for officers
living In apartmenta, other than public and
not metered, to obtain receipts from their
landlords for their heat and light allowance.
The form of receipt (305c) will be discon
tinued. Form 206b has been amended to
answer both as certificate and voucher and
will be used In accordance with Instructions
printed thereon. The general atorekeeper
at Washington has been directed to furnish
a aupply of the new form 205b to all gen
eral storekeepers without dels)-. Each gen
eral atorekeeper will furnish officers whose
heat and light Is obtained through his of
fice with the new form. When a check la
mailed in payment of such allowances, tha
officer making payment will advlae tha
landlord or agent for what purpose and for
otiose account tha payment la made and
request that credit be given accordingly."
