Mayor "Jim" continues to be the
'big noise" at Denver, but a lot of
good democrats left at home reflect
that the voting machine Is noiseless.

by our late panic are the European

who fatten on American tourist travel.

Simmered down to its substance, the
convention at Denver is a fine example
of freedom of speech. What those
democrats are saying about each other
gives no indication of either restraint

that campaign methods have also been

The cartoonist bf the local Bryanlte
organ serves notice that the demo

consent of Governor Johnson of Min

Why should democrats object to the
display of a republican banner by the
republican state headquarters at Lin
coln just because Bryan lives in one of
the suburbs? Are no democratic ban
ners to be strung in Cincinnati be
cause that is Mr. Taft'a home?
The platitudes of the chairman's

before him present such a pleasing
contrast that even the democratic

So one who followed the popular
movement that culminated In the
nomination of William H. Tart at
Chicago will bo surprised at the selec
tion of Frank H. Hitchcock to be
chairman of the national republican
committee In charge of the manage
ment of the campaign. Nothing suc
ceeds like success, and It was largely
due to Mr. Hitchcock's tactful super
vision of the preliminaries that the
candidacy of Mr. .Taft was made Im
pregnable to his competitors who had
allied themselves together for the pur
pose of preventing his nomination.
Mr. Hitchcock has already proved
himself alert, resourceful, untiring
and a thorough master of details. His
experience in the pre-convention cam
paign developed his high qualities as
a political leader and put him In
touch with the working forces
throughout the country through whose
co-operation the nomination of Mr.
Taft was brought about. He needs
no introduction to the , party leaders
in' the various states of the union
who must execute the maneuvers of
the campaign by which the rank and
file will be rallied and marshaled.
In a word, It had been demonstrated
that Mr. Hitchcock was the logical
man for the position of national chair
man and there Is nothing to indicate
that any other name was seriously con
sidered at any time since the national
committee delegated Its authority to
make the selection to the sub-committee
in conjunction with the candi
dates. It goes without saying that Chair
man Hitchcock will at once take hold
with vigor and foresight and set the
wheels In motion for an aggressive,
winning campaign with no let up or
slow down until after the votes are in.
CHARTER MAKItfQ IX KANSAS CITY.
Kansas City Is to vote at a special
election next month to adopt or reject
a new city charter which has Just been
framed by virtue of the municipal
home rule principles that prevail In
Missouri. The new Kansas City char
ter, which Is, of course, largely a re
vision of the old charter, has been
prepared by a committee of freeholders
for which the law provides and will
become effective, If ratified, without
the Intervention of the legislature
with its attendant tinkering and muti
That the new Kansas City charter
Is a comprehensive document may be
inferred from the fact that it com
prises more than 400 typewritten
pages. It doubtless contains much
that la debatable and much more that
would not be suitable to any other
city, but it also contains many pro
visions based upon the best of experi
ence of our most progressive - Amer
ican cities. At any rate, the construc
tion of a city charter, wholly by a local
committee of freeholders, subject only
to the approval of the people of the
city directly concerned, is likely to
erlve the community a form of munic
ipal government fitting its peculiar
need? and satisfying lis inhabitants.
Whether Omaha can ever secure the
privilege of making Its own city char
ter will depend on future develop
ments. But there Is no question that
Omaha would solve its own problems
better If It could be charged with that
responsibility and be freed from char
ter manlnulatlon in the legislature
nine-tenths of whose membership is
made un of outsiders. We believe
that with complete municipal home
rule even our vexed question of con
solidation could be successfully worked
out by getting representatives of
Omaha and South Omaha together In
a charter-making committee disposed
to mutual concession on lines of com
mon sense and practical politics.
BTROKOKR PROFKSB10H AL COURSES-
Announcements now being made of
changes in the next year's courses in
many of the larger Institutions of
learning, contain promises of import
ant changes relative to the study of
medicine, law, engineering, forestry
and other practical and professional
subjects. The universities generally
are becoming convinced, following the
lead of Columbia and Harvard, that
students in specialized lines should be
better equipped In knowledge of the
liberal arts. The general require
ments, therefore, will be that students
for these special courses will be com
pelled to have at least two years of
under-graduate work before entering
upon professional study.
According to a recent report of the
commissioner of - education of the
United States, there are 622 Institu
tions of higher education available for
the men of the country. The under
graduate enrollment of boys In 114 ot
these la In excess of 200. The en
rollment in 17 of the number is in
excess of 1,000, five have more than
1,600 and five others have enrollment
In excess of 2,000. The United States
has become a nation of colleges and
universities, and never before in the
history ot the world was there such
an army ot students as that which is
clamoring for admission to them.
With this throng has come the de
mand for more and better Instruction,
more varied courses of study and
larger provision tor equipping young
men to participate in varied fields of,
activities. It is the danger ot putting
this army of students into the world's
battle "scarce half made up" against
which the stronger Institutions are
now taking precautions.
Tha heads of the great colleges are
realizing that they have been turning
out men too narrowly specialized,
lawyers who know nothing but law,
physicians who know nothing but
medicine, engineers who have only a
technical training. The demand Is
for more men in the, sciences and In
the professions who have a broader
general rdncstldn, who can supplement
thflr technical education wKh a
knowledge of the liberal arts and
human nature. The proposed In
crease in preliminary requirements
will be welcomed as promising a better
appreciation of the broader life for
the graduates of our professional
FEn KR WLS CARS.
Reports received by the American
Railway association at its New York
headquarters show that on July 1
fewer box cars were Idle than a month
previous and that a steady decrease
In the number of unused freight cars
has been noted month after month
since April. This has but one mean
ing, that business Is gradually ex
panding. While the resumption of activity is
not evenly distributed throughout the
various sections of the country, the
fact of resumption is sure to spread
its benefits over all. Probably the
moat slgnficant feature of the report
Is that the Increase In car demand
comes at a time when railroads ex
pect a decrease in business. June is
not an especially active month in any
line, and a showing of business growth
during the summer is a most auspi
cious presage for the fall and winter.
In connection with this encouraging
report from the railroads comes the
news from the harvest fields that
promise a yield of wheat much larger
than last year, while the outlook for
the corn crop is equally good. Mines
and factories are swinging into the
line of active work again, and from
every part of the country comes the
report of steadily Increasing industry.
The creative capacity and consump
tive demand of 85,000,000 American
citizens are too great to permit any
thing like general idleness to prevail
long In the United States.
From the hubbub they are raising
over the "cash-in-advance" rule pro
mulgated by the clerk of the district
court people would imagine that the
lawyers paid the court costs and execu
tion fees out of their own pockets in
stead of with money furnished them
by their clients. If the new ru
means that the money advanced for
costs by he clients is to go in the pub
lic treasury Instead of sticking to the
fingers of the lawyers Indefinitely It
will be a real reform. Of 'course,
theBe reflections do not apply to all our
lawyers, nor to a majority of them,
but the shoe will probably fit some of
those who are making the most noise.
According to the florid report of the
"staff correspondent" on the spot for
our local democratic contemporary,
Chairman Bell In opening the Denver
convention "talked like a glorious
combination of John the Baptist, Sav
onarola, Tennyson and Patrick Henry."
He also talked "like a plumed knight
eager for the lists," whatever kind of
talk that is. In fact, Temporary
Chairman Bell must have been a reg
ular composite phonograph running
the whole gamut of history from its
dawn to its present high noon.
Mrs. Cleveland received so many
messages of condolence and sympathy
In her bereavement that she has found
it impossible to reply to them Individ
ually and has utilized the newspapers
to make public acknowledgement ot
appreciation. It goes without saying
that Mrs. Cleveland is acting in this
under far-seeing advice. She will not
now have to thank anyone In particu
lar for the resolution adopted at
With all the bombast about "cash
registers" and the like, the temporary
chairman at Denver did not offer to
explain who got the $20,000 which
Mayor "Jim" and Brother-in-Law
Tom" brought into Nebraska four
years ago. And Ryan and Sheehan
say the money was paid over In cash.
It is kngwn where this money came
from, but the recipients are maintain
ing a masterly silence as to where it
The democrats who looked askance
at the recent conference on natural
resources as a threatened Invasion of
states' rights by President Roosevelt
and the national government are now
trying to catch on to the sentiment
aroused by that conference in favor or
conserving natural resources. The
protection of states' rights is a demo
cratic talisman only when they want
to draw on It for political capital.
Notwithstanding Mr. Bryan's per
sonal appeal, Mr. Hearst has not yet
rescinded the call for the national con
vention of his Independence league,
summoned to put out an Independent
presidential ticket. Mr. Hearst also

Not before during a whole year have so
many people of the laboring class left
the country as during this half year alono,
and the consequent drain upon the supply
of rough or unskilled labor In western
rennsjlvanla is ao great that the iron ana
steel Industry Is wondering where an ade
quate supply of .his class of help will be
found when business prosperity haa re
turned, for It Is said that much of th:
alien labor which has' returned to Kuropi
has no intention of returning. There will
be found abroad, however, plonty of other
labor of the kind to take It place.
Extraordinary as this alien outflow Is,
the contraction In the alien Inflow is even
more so. It amounts to over 70 per cent
from Just a year ago. No other greet
panic in the country's history produced
so great an effect as this upon Immigration.
The decline following the panic of 1K3
was from 63,0,0 immigrants in the fiscal
year to June 30, 1S92, to 602,900 In 1893, 311
467 In 1894 and 2781,948 in 1895 there having
been a much smaller relative contraction
during two years after the panic than has
now taken place within less than one year.
After the panic of 1873 immigration fell of;
only about one-half In the. course of two
lears and only about two-thirds In the
course of three years. Previous to the re
cent time the greatest emigration to the
United States took place from 1S79 to 1882.
It reached 788,900 in the latter year and de
clined thereafter, to 334,200 in 18S8 whicn
waa a smaller relative shrinkage during
four years than uss now taken place ir
less than one year.
If the panic of 1907 had far greater ef
fect in halting immigration than any o'
the other great panics, we are not neces
sarily to conclude that It was a severer
crisis. Other factors are no doubt to be
considered In answering the question wh

THE GItEAT DENVER SHOW.
Variety of Movement and Scene Dis
guises the Tragedy.
Everything is in magnificent disorder at
Denver. The ass Joyfully brays and
awaits his peerless rider. The westerners,
who want a man who cannot be elected,
and the easterners, who cannot get a man
who could be elected, are mingling their
stocks of misinformation and mlsolaced en
thusiasm. Candidates for vice-president run
up and down, seeking something they can
not find. Every man thinks he has an
idea that would make a fine plank In the
platform, but he cannot find the platform-
It hasn't left Lincoln yet. Bo, while they
are waiting for the platform, the delegates
are belaboring with their planks. In true
Mr. Parker of Esopus has sloughed off
the cerements of oblivion, and moves among
the Bryan worshipers like a thing of life.
It was said that he sought trouble that he
waa a firebrand, determined to bring down
democracy In ruins by pressing resolutions
eulogising a man who as called a demo
crat in his time. Hut no! The mummy of
Esopus seeks harmony alone. He longs for
the milk of eoncoid, and the honey of fra
ternal love. For that his perturbed spirit
burst from Its urn and now flits In the
shadow of Pike's Peak. Will he find what
he seeks? Will he find surcease of sorrow
In the bosom of the Abraham of Lincoln?
It will go hard If he does not!
But what of the vice-president? Which
of the fifty-seven varieties will be the
victim? Will it be a Bryan worshiper, skip
ping eagerly like a lamb to the slaughter,
or will it be a conservative, lassoed and
dragged bleating to his doom? If It were
possible to Imagine that logic would have a
place in the councils of the Bedlamites, we
should look for the nomination pf a Bryan
ite, a man after Bryan's own heart, who,
if elected, would steer the bewildered ship
of state Into unpethed waters and along
undreamed shore. He would be a radical,
with no old-fashioned notions to hinder his
ripping-up of the constitution.
But since Denver is no place for logic
just now. It Is best to expect the prepos
terous. The convention will probably try to
capture for vice-president a conservative,
a man, who by nature and Instinct, la op
posed to Bryanlsm. If such a man can be
captured, and forced to run. It Is calculated
that he would exert a wonderful influence
in Inducing other conservatives to vote for
radicalism. What devilish cunning! What
deep, dark strategy! How It will fool all
the people, especially those who expect It

Mayor Jim Dahlman of Omaha, tha
honored Irsder of all the democrats of N

more space In publlo print at Denver than
he can possibly control or secure. Possess

he radiates Interviews in every direction
and bravely araumes every responsibility

from the publicity of the main tent,

shadows and revel .In his vocal fireworks
A few specimens are worth presenting for
"There Is a newspaper man somewhere In
this broad world who looks like me," said
Mayor Jim Dahlman of Omaha, "and I'm
looking for him."
"Want to sympathise with him?" asked
Colonel Eaton, who la always on tap to
boost for the newspaper man.
"No. I want to have him arrested f6r
malicious Impersonation. Tou see, It Is this
way: He, whoever he Is, drifted Into
Omaha shortly after my election, and some
one slapped him on the shoulder and said;
'Hullo, mayor; come nnd have one on me.
"He had one.
"From all reports ho had several under
the disguise of the mayor of Omaha.
"Other constituents of mine dropped Into
the thirst parlor and they fell to the bas3

my double had climbed on top of tn Indian
cigar sign and was making a speech. He
was hitting right and left and accepting
the nomination and the election and high
balls and everything that came his way,
and the crowd yelled itself hoarse In ap
Mayor Dahlman met Nurse Lynch of the
Johnson hoom In the Albany lobby.
"Hello, Lynch," said the cowboy mayor.
"you're a game sport you've never picked
a loser before. Why are you tied up to
"I'll admit," replied Lynch, "that our
prospects aren't the very best, but say
what's the matter with you? You've been
tied up to a loser for twelve years, and It
leoks as though you're going to stay tied
to a loser for some time to come."
They were good natured about It. At
least, they were In a place of saturation a
few minutes later, each with a "smile."
Owing to the great slxe of the crowd at
the broncho busting contest some of the
politicians had to stand in front of the
grand stand with no easily accessible
fences to climb when the bronchos began
to buck and charge. "Thad" Sowder, a
buster of renown In the Cheyenne country,
was announced first, and his little turn
consisted in an effort to remnln on the
back of a dun broncho named Old Steam
boat. Mr. Sowder remained seated for about a
minute after they took the blindfold from
Old Steamboat. Then the broncho gave
a new sort of complex buck that nearly
unseated the rider, and In his effort to
remain astride Mr. Sowder grabbed . the
horn of the saddle.
"You touched leather," shouted "Jim"
Dahlman; "you're, down."
The spectators cheered, but the poli
ticians looked blank.
"What docs that mean?" Inquired Alton
"It's agin the rule fur to hang on by the
pommel," explained a cowboy.
"I wonder If that Is the rule under which
Bryan set us down," said Mr. Parker to
William F. Sheehan. "I had always
thought it was fair to hang on any way
"That's because you don't understand the
way they play the game In thle western
country," said Tom Taggart They make
their own rules out here."
Full hotels are not worrying the New
Jersey or Nebraska delegations or the
County Democratic club of Chicago. These
came to Denver on special trains and are
now living ini their cars in railroad yards.
The trains stand on cenvenlent sidings
within a short distance of the Sixteenth
street cars, and the delegates can come and
go at their convenience. The cars are of
the department kind and every delegate
has his private room. Well stocked dining
cars Insure regular meals with no waiting,
and nothing has been omitted that couid
lend to the comfort of those aboard.
New Yorkers attending the convention are
putting up a howl against the flood of sil
ver dollars that Is pouring In upon them.
To offer a $5 bill for a purchase means
Invariably to receive four silver dollars In
return if the puhchaae price Is 31 or less.
It seems that SI and 32 bills are as rare
out there as silver dolars are In New oYrk.
The result is that some of the New Yorkers
are finding holes in their pockets already.
"I hadn't seen a 31 bill in three months,"
said a restaurant cashier, "until you New
Yorkers came along here. Bills carry germs
and silver dollars don't, you know, and we
have a lot of lungers out here."
Denver Is to have the biggest bar In
the United States while this convention
lasts. It Is to be half a block long. Forty
four expert drink mixers and thirty free
lunch servers and porters have been en
gaged to attend this bar, and the head
barkeeper says that he will be able to re
fresh 300 thirsty Individuals at one time.
It Is in the Hotel Albany, where the
Johnson boom and many delegations are
to be quartered.
The boose emporiums of Denver don't
seem to fear any loss of trade from the
high altitude here, and all the bartenders
are prepared to tell oiks from the low
country that a lot of this talk about the
effect of booze, In Denver at least. Is ex
aggeration. "It won't affect you, unless you've taken
too much, and. of course, no gentlemen,
east or west, ever takes too much," said
ons big bartender, as he pushed the beers
and highballs across the bar to the timid
ones of the east.
One of the large stores opposite the Brown
Palace hotel, where most of the politicians
and delegates congregate, had pasted up In
Its window today a telegram signed by
Wlllam J. Bryan. It drew a big crowd.
This Is what it said:
"D. E. Mocracy, Denver, Colo. "Man
shall not be crucified. I will undertake the
sacrifice again and again, if necessary.
"P. S. See that it is absolutely neces
sary." On top of the same store Is an enor
mous donkey done in electric lights,
which can be seen for blocks, and is in
full view of the Bryan i headquarters,

about that the proprietor of the store Is a

discrimination, but It must be remembered
that the Hearst strength Is largely located

of business as the late Morris K. Jesup
that It was worth while to try again, and
that he had the requisite qualities for the
task, Is a notable bit of testimony both
In regard to the man and his enterprise.'
Even more significant Is the lively sym
pathy of President Roosevelt, to whom
before sailing the explorer will pay his
respects, and by whom he will be enter
tained at luncheon. So distinguished a
representative of the strenuous life might
well appreciate and admire Peary's indom
itable pluck, and on this account alone
extend encouragement. But the chief exe
cutive haa commended the undertaking also
because in his judgment It Involves na
tional pride. Mr. Roosevelt sees that a
peculiar and lasting distinction will be
won by the country one of whose sons
first sets foot at the pole, as some man
of heroic mould will unquestionably do
sooner or later.
In two particulars Peary will alter Mb
prog-ram on his coming expedition. He
plans to push out on the Icy covering of
the polar sea from a point on the north
coast of Grant Land further west than
the one last adopted for that critical stage
of the campaign. He also Intends to pursue
a northwesterly course. In order to offset
the eastward movement of the pack. In
other respects the precedent established by
Peary himself will be closely followed.
Within the next eight or ten weeks he
will try to force the best ship ever built
for such work up along the Greenland coast
to the Arctic Ocean. In something like
latitude 83 he will then seek winter quarters.
Early In spring the explorer will make
a sledge Journey over the Ice pack, leaving
the land 200 or 800 miles to the westward
of the Rooaevelt'a berth. Finally, so that
the food supply for man and dog shall
last the longer, the size of the party will
be reduced gradually by sending back to
Shore some of those who at first accom
pany the leader of the ex;ieditlon. Inas
much as Peary came within 200 nautical
miles of the pole when he made the last
world's record, It does not seem unreason
able to hope that he will now reach the
goal for which he has so nobly striven.
