"khali. twb rxorir. rvlzI"
In his speech of acceptance at Lin
coln Mr. Bryan got his eloquence and
logic aadly mixed in bin effort to prove
that there can be no lasting relief from
the evils and abuses of which the peo
ple complain until there is a restora
tion of the rule of the people. He
contended that thl could not be ac
complished until the way was pro
vided for the election of United States
senators by a direct vote of the people.
This Is In thorough keeping wltn Mr.
Bryan's position on that subject for a
number jof years. In fact, It Is one of
the few propositions on which he has
not changed front to meet the
changes in public sentiment. But Mr.
Bryan was not content to stop with
his recommendation of a change In the
manner of electing United States sen
ators. He continued his argument
with this statement:
Shall the people rule? They ran not do o
until they can control the house of repre
sentatives, and, through their representa
tives In the house, give expression to their
purposes and their desires.
That is a complete crossing of the
wires. Even Mr. Bryan will not con
tend that the members of the house
of representatives are not elected by
a direct vote of the people. Whateyer
argument may be used against the con
stitutional method of electing United
States senators, it can not apply to the
selection of members of .the house.
These members have to go back to the
people every two years with an ac
count of their stewardship and to sub
mit their records to the voters of their
districts. They are elected or rejected
by a direct vote of the people, and yet
Mr. Bryan argues that the people can
not rule until they get control of the
house of representatives which he de
scribes as "the third instrumentality
employed to defeat the will of the
people." If the people can not rule
through their members of the house,
elected by their direct vote, what as
surance can be offered by Mr. Bryan
that the people would come any nearer
to their rule if the senators were
elected in a similar way?
Mr. Bryan might be excused for mak
ing this error if he had not had ex
perience In the house of representa
tives in congress. He knows, or should
know, that each house Is a law unto
Itself, so far as Its rules are concerned.
He knows, or should know, that the
power now vested In the speaker' of
the house and the select committee
on rules against which republicans
and democrats alike are protesting
may be taken from the speaker and
the rules committee at any time a
majority of the members of the house
so .decide. He knows, or should know,
that the democrats had thla opportunity
when Mr.. Bryan was in congress. The
famous- Reed rules, which had been
adopted to stop a democratic fill
buster, were readopted by the demo
cratic majority under - Speaker Crisp,
Just aa they have, ben, adopted by each
succeeding . congress. nese njjen ro
subject to change , it any session of
congress , and doubtless : Bhould be
changed, but the change will haye to
be made by members of the house.
Mr. Bryan simply befogs the Issue by
demanding that the senate be elected
as the house Is. now chosen and then
attempting to prove that the people
can not ruie unui wej ei muuui
house. The proposition is very similar
to his plea for regulation of railways
in face of his reiterated conviction
that regulation must prove a failure
and that government ownership Is the
only remedy for railway abusea and
TUB TAX BA r&
For some time the democrats of Ne
braska have been keeping up a hulla
baloo about the threatened increase in
taxation, charging that under the re
publican administration the farmers
would pay more and the railroads less
taxes than ever. The figures Just Is
sued from the State Board of Equaliza
tion give the best possible answer to
this silly charge. Although the as
sessed valuation of the state is in
creased by more than $62,000,000,
only a little more than $18,000 addi
tional will be collected by the state.
This sum is due entirely to the opera
tion of the law, which fixes the rate
for the university and the redemption
fund and gives the State Board of
Equalization no discretion in the
The redemption fund is collected to
pay the enormous floating deot, which
was piled up against the state during
the years before the present revenue
law was enacted. Much of this debt
is a legacy from the popo'cratlc admin
istrations, due to the reckless misman
agement of the state institutions un
der the false plea of economy. It
stood for years, constantly growing,
until the republican officers and legis
lature took hold of the matter , and
made provisions for paying the war
rants that were the fruit of excessive
appropriations. No stigma can possi
bly attach to the administration for
making provisions to pay the state's
debts. The 1 mill that Is levied ifor
the purpose of discharging the great
load of excess warrants is not a per
manent appropriation and the cause
for its existence is rapidly disappear
ing under the wise administration of
the state's affairs by the republican
Another appropriation mad by di
rect levy Is the 1 mill for the support
of the Stat university. The demo
cratic organs that are piping the loud
est on the extravagance, key have
clamored most for money to support
the university, and would make a
dreadful fuss If It were even suggested
that the amount allowed that institu
tion should be reduced. This is be
yond the control of the State Board of
Equalization, however, and Is outside
The only fund over which the as
sessment board has any control is the
general fund, and for this the !evy has
been reduced three-fourths of 1 mill.
Any Increased collection must be due
to the increase In valuation. It was
but natural that there should be an
Increase In value of the property in
the state. Real property had not been
assessed for four yeara and the great
growth of Nebraska during that time
would have made ridiculous any effort
to prevent higher figures for the total
valuation. Great care has been taken
to equally adjust values In the differ
ent sections of the state and the result
is generally Satisfactory to all save
those who seek to make some cheap
political capital out of the condition.
The finances of Nebraska are in safe
hands and the business of the state la
being carried on prudently and eco
nomically. The clamor of the opposi
tion concerning the tax levy will fall
because its animus is too easily detected.
AS Al.LlAtiCE WITH CH13A.
The average American citizen will
offer little encouragement to the cam
paign that has been started In New
York for the education of the people
up to the need of an alliance between
the United States and China for the
purpose of preventing Japan from se
curing a dominating Influence in the
Pacific and creating a "Monroe doc
trine for Asia." The New York Her
ald Is leading the new agitation and
is endeavoring to make it appear that
American commercial interests in the
orient are threatened with extinction
unless this country unites with China
in an alliance that will offset the al
liance between England and Japan.
American Interest In China is one
of trade relations only. The late secre
tary of state, Mr. John Hay, made this
policy clear when he sought the co
operation of the other powers in keep
ing the "open door" in China.- That
was done for the purpose of saving
China from becoming a prey to other
European powers and was in part
successful. Now a new danger is
threatened through Japan, which is
seeking to dominate China and to set
up the doctrine of "Asia for Asiatics."
In a muddle of that kind, the United
States should have no part. It would
lead to International complications and
possibly to war, and wouldbe In vio
lation of this nation's long established
policy of "no entangling alliances"
with foreign powers.
Trade supremacy Is not determined
by alliances between governments. It
is secured by tariff concessions and or
ganized enterprise and effort on the
part of merchants and manufacturers.
This country should not entertain a
proposition of an alliance with any
other power, either for offense and
defense or for trade purposes. Any
consideration of such an alliance with
China" would serve to empha3lze the
question of Asiatic ( immigration ex
clusion and add to the complications
that already surround "that problem.
The United States is bound, by trade
Interests and by the doctrines of hu
manity, to give its best effort to the
preservation of the integrity of China
and to prevent that nation from dis
memberment by greedy foreign powers,
but no warrant can beNfound for mak
ing China's troubles a part of our
own, as they would become by such an
alliance as that now proposed.
THE FABMEH'S CONTBlBVTIny.
The estimate of Secretary Wilson
of the Department of Agriculture that
the total value of this year's -products
of the American farm will be In excess
of $8,000,000,000, or an increase of
about $600,000,000 over the very pros
neroua year of 1907, has started the
statisticians to computing the figures
of Erowth of the agricultural interests
of the nation with results that are
simply astonishing. The Manufactur
er's Record of Baltimore shows the re
sults of the farmer's wealth producing
operations by the following striking
Total value farm
property $12,180,000,000 1:8,077,000,000
Total value farm
products 2,112,000,000 7.412.000.000
How each member of the farming
community has shared in this good
fortune is shown by another group of
Farm property, per capita 11.579 32.341
Farm products, per capita 28 611
This remarkable development is
shown more emphatically by the state
ment that the Increase in the value
of farm property alone for the years
between 1900 and 1907 Is $8,000,000,
000. or about nine times as great as
the aggregate national banking capi
talization of the nation and more than
half as large as the entire capitaliza
tion, stocks and bonds included, of the
railroads of the United States. In other
words, If the farmers of the nation
had simply taken the increase in the
value of their farms for seven years,
they could have used it to buy all of
the national banks of the country
and to have had eight times the capi
tal stocks of the banks left over Tor
In 1890, the 8,565,000 persons en
gaged In farming produced a total of
$2,466,000,000. or a per capita aver
age of $287. In 1907. the 11,991,000
engaged in agriculture, produced a
total of $7,412,000,000 or a per capita
average of $618. In that period the
number of agricultural workers In
creased 40 per cent, the value of their
products lncreaaed over 200 per cent
and the total value of farm property
Increased by nearly 90 per cent.
In this connection, it must be re
membered that from 1870 until 1880
there was a decline in the value of
farm products and that from 1880
until 1890 the increase waa nominal,
so that the remarkable record ot ad
vance has been made since 1890 and
most of it since 1900. Since 1900 the
gain has continued uninterrupted.
Quoting from the Manufacturers' Rer
The effect of this really amaslng change
In agricultural conditions finds an Illus
tration In the advance In the average alue

engnged m agriculture. In 10 the aver
age per capita was U.R79. By 1!X thla
had Increased to 11. SM. or In twenty year
an advance of $371 per capita to those en
gaged In agricultural pursuits. Between
lfO and 1907 thla Increase continjed at
uch a rapid rate aa to bring the average
up to $2,341 In 1907, or a gain In seven
ye-a of $M3 per capita, which was a
larger. Increase for that period than the
gain In the twenty years from 1W0 to 1PH).
The actual gain In the value of farm prop
erty alne 1M0 haa been equal to an aver
age of $762 for every man. woman and
child engaged In agricultural pursuits.
With the agricultural conditions
of the country so fundamentally sound,
there can be no lasting period of com
mercial and Industrial depression. The
farmers are ready to give the lallroads
the largest tonnage In their history
and thus form the sure basis for a
great expansion of industry.
