The democratic candidate for ihe
presidency appears to h.e laboring un
der the delusion that he Is a pioneer
in the field of tariff investigation and
Jt&covtry. In his speech at Des
Moines, repeated with variations at the
g'ate fairs In Minnesota and the Da
kotaa, Colonel Bryan has dealt with
the subjection of tariff protection with
all the zeal, enthusiasm and Ingenu
ousness of a college student taking his
first lessons In political economy. He
demands that the supporters and advo
cates of a protective tariff policy prove
that it is right in principle, a wise pub
lic policy and necessary to the better
ment of American conditions. Mr.
Bryan still clings to a delusion that
was shattered when the United Stales
of America first began business with
out a partner.
It was Alexander Hamilton who
first began writing about the needs of
a protective tariff system for the
United States, presenting arguments
which have not been answered by any
democrat down to date. Experience
on the hustings and lu the halls of
congress have demonstrated that the
American people have a fixed and un
alterable opposition to free trade, so
Mr. Bryan Is not advocating that doc
trine this year. He really poses as a
protectionist, only insisting that he
must furnish the definition of what
protection really means. He is not
specific in his explanation and forces
the conclusion that he is opposing the
protective tariff system simply because
the republicans favor it and his para
mount issue this year is anything to
At Des Moinrs Mr. Bryan declared
that the continued existence of the
protective system "can be .accounted
for only on the theory that the
voters have not understood either
the theory of protection or the facts?
relied upon lo support It." This is a
pretty severe charge against the in
telligence of the American people who
have voted approval of the protective
tariff for forty-eight years with but
one' break and that at once productive
of widespread disuster. It requires a
high degree of temerity for a presi
dential candidate to charge a nation
with being stupid enough to vote for
half a century In support of a system
making their robbery easy. That a re
vision of the tariff Is desirable and
certain does not enter into the calcu
lation. Mr. Bryan'a attack is upon
the protective system generally, under
which, fostered by republican admin
istration, all our domestic manufactur
ing Industries have been developed un
til now America is' the machine shop
of the world, to the benefit of both
producer and consumer, the laborer
and the manufacturer. American pro

The adjournment of the Ioa legis
lature without electing a succewor to
the late Senator Alliuon, but under
agreement to return in November and
vote for the republican choice to be
disclosed by a preferential ballot at
the November election, Is a truce in the
factional fight in the Hawkeye state.
This is 'virtually going back to the
original program laid out for the extra
session at the time it was called.
The dlfllcuHy In Iowa grows out of
the fact that the direct primary law
failed to provide for the emergency
presented by the sudden death of Sen
ator Allison after ho had been named
in the preceding primary as the popu
lar choice to succeed himself. The
law left no way to take another ex
pression of the party membership and
It was with the distinctly stated pur
pose of amending the law In this re
spect that the legislature was con
vened. The attempt to force a choice
of senator at the extra session was
never promising and the balloting
served no purpose except to disclose
the relative strength of the d'fferent
factions in the two houses of the legis
lature. The f)ral arrangement for adjourn
ment Is by no means an Ideal solution,
but It Is, undoubtedly, the best way out
of a puzzling predicament. It ought
to go a great ways toward making
sure that the next legislature about to
be chosen will be republican lu order
to commission the popular choice for
senator not only for the short term,
but also for the full term, which will
not begin until next year. It ought,
also, to solidify all elements of the
party behind the national ticket and
keep Iowa In the republican column
by Its usual majorities.

The nations that paid but little at
tention to the boycott started by China
against Japan less than a year ego
have been compelled to change opin
ions in view of recent news from the
orient. Reports show that the boycott
has proved most disastrous to Japa
nese trade and Is, more than any
other one cause, responsible for Ja
pan's action postponing for five yea re
its proposed International exposition at
. For the Japanese steamship com
panies, most of which reporti that they
are on the verge of bankruptcy, the Bit
nation Is decidedly serious, while the
effects are bi?injj seriously felt by all
classes of Japanese merchants. It ap
pears to be the most successful com
mercial warfare ou record and demon
titrates an efficiency on the part of the
Chinese in tarrying on such a fight
that has not heretofore been expected.
The Chinese are showing remarkable
eonstancy in standing togther' and
making personal sacrifices for the ad
vancement of the boycott. It consti
tutes the first tangible proof of the ex
istence of a real national spirit to
While Japan Is threatened by the
boycott with a greater financial los
than It sustained in the war with Rus
sia, the situation Is significant to the
rest of the world as dissipating the
much talked of possibility of a union
of Japan and China at a real "yellow
peril." All Indications are that the
Chinese hatred of Japan is deep-seated
enough to prevent for many years the
adoption of the "Asia for Asiatics"
policy which Is known to be behind
one of Japan's dreams of empire.
rUCFIT IX FVUKST Ra'iiEftV'j:
One of the objections urged by the
opponents of President Roosevelt's
foreBt reserve policy has been that It
would entail a heavy burden of expense
upon the government for the mainte
nance of the reserves established In
the different states. These opponents
have made much of the appropriation
bills and the expends of the forestry
bureau and th Inspector, rangers
and other employes of the "service.
While the amount has never been
large, the expenditure would have been
amply justified by the general good
to be derived from the adoption of the
forestry system, even if there were no
source of return. The fact r.nnalns,
however, that iider the existing sjs
tems the forest reserves promise to
be a source of revenue, instead of ex
pense, both to the federal government
and to the states In which the reserves
Returns Just printed by the bureau
of forestry show that the United
States receives large proceeds from the
national forest reserves and that un
der a new law several of tho states
are sharing in these returns to a
substantial degree. This now law,
passed by the last congress, gives 25
per cent of the gross proceeds of na
tional forest business to the states In
which the forests are. located for pub
lic schools and roads. The allotments
to the states and territories for the
last fiscal year amount to J447.063.
Arkansas, with two newly established
national forest reserves, received 1313,
while Oklahoma came next with f 554.
From that amoilnt the allotments In
creased to $75,000, which waa Mon
The revenues from national forests
are derived from grazing leases, timber
sales for special uses, the latter of
which comprises the use of the lesser
resources of the forests and the permits
for the development of water power.
Montana, California and Colorado will
each receive more than $50,000 from
timber sales for last year. Idaho,
Utah and Oregon will each get In ex
cess of $50,000 from grazing leases
and California will receive about $50,
000 from permits for the development
of water power. TheBe amounts will
naturally be Increased from year .to
year;y The lion's Bhare of the gross
receipts now go to the government.
This is Just and necessary, as the Jn
Itial expense of federal' control Is
heavier than It will be after the sys
tem has become generally established
and better organized. As the years
lapse the profits from national forests,
compared with the expense of main
taining them, should steadily increase
and be, aside from the general public
benefit, of great help to the states In
advancing the educational work' and in
public road Improvement.
Mr. Harrimnn's watchword of co
operation Is good enough for Omaha,
too. It is not only the pulling to
gether of the business interests of the
city, but that they should be In rloee
touch with all the commercial and In
dustrial activities of the surrounding
country In order to fully realize the
possibilities of Omaha's greatness.

"The Old Way, the Steady Way, la the
Governor Hughes' speech at the Troy
Home Week celebration Sunday was one
of the most timely he has ever delivered.
"Slick," which was growing almost obso
lete, becomes once more a living word In
our common talk. "Sllckness" used to be
thought a dominant trait la American char
acter, particularly by the humorists. Gov
ernor Hughes condemns the Idea that tho
object of business Is to be clever by de
ception. He points out that no one gets a
place worth holding and secures the con
fidence -of the people who docs not dem
onstrate that he can be trusted:
Don't 'follow the man who thinks It Is
American to be slick. There may be many
illustrations tuat will occur to you of cuses
of successful sharpness, but they are so
exceptional as to prove the ruie. The old
way, the steady way, Is the right way; put
a little more In the measure than you need
to give- a good bnskctful of fruit, and don't
simply have a little display on top of su
perficial attention and Industry; give a lit
tle more work than you are asked to give,
and It will show, on one hand, that you arc
unpurchasable, and, on tne other hand,
you esteem it an honor to give more than
Is required at your hands in every depart
ment of life's effort.
For the middle-aged men, who In the
awakening of the last few years have had
occasion to change their beliefs about the
dissociation cf morals and business, the
governor had this word:
My friends, we have in the conservation
of our natural resources one of the greatest
problems which any president ever aub
mitted to the American people. Vi e must
conserve the ideals and the aspirations of
our young manhood, and what is still more
Important we can do It. We can, do it not
by talking It into the boys and girls, but
by living It before the boys and girls.
To talk In this direct and simple manner
on a subject that needs wise discussion and
plenty of It In this hour was better than
talking politics. Conserve our material re
sources, by all means, but let us not neglect
to conserve our ideals.
I.ADOll AND POLITICS.
Radicals Menacing; the I.lfe of the
Ban Francisco Chronicle.
There has never been a friendly society
which could stand the strain of engaging
In political contests, and it Is unlikely that
there ever will be. No organisation is less
able than a labor union to stand such a
fctraln, for In no other organization is there
so large a part of the membership to whom
the emoluments of a small office Is a
temptation. Morally the worklngmen are
exactly like other people, and to a very
large number of them the desire for a po
litical Job will outweigh any regard which
they may have for reputation of union la
bor. We saw the result In this city a solid
vote of unquestionably honest men regularly
given to a gang of unmitigated scoundrels
who had no trouble whatever In controlling
the conventions. In time, of rourae, the
honest men will revolt. Fortunately for
unionism, the revolt In this city cams in
time to avert a catastrophe. Another term
of Hohrniti would have broken up unionism
In this city for years.
There Is little doubt that Gompers ex
pects the same thing to happen to the
Federation of Ijibor aa the result of Us
going Into politics. He opposed it as long
as he could, but when It became evident
that he could no longer resist the hotheads
without great danger of losing his Job, he
accepted the Inevitable and entered Into a
bargain with a political party by which
he was to deliver the labor vote In return
for certain promises made by the party
leaders and emlodld In the platform.
lie cannot deliver the votes and his at
tempt to force the pledge of them Is already
raiding the tempest which was certsin to
come and which Gompers must have con
fidently expected, for In former days he
has expressed himself sn clearly and so
publicly as to leave no d lubt of his under
tnding In the mutter. He seems unable
even to secure the votes of the unions,
although in most unions, as in moat other
secret societies, a very small number of
the members usually attend meetings, and
tl.ey are almost surs to le the radicals.
The constitutions of all unions probably
forbid discussion of political subjects, and
there seems no disposition to defy that
fundamental law, even If the American
Federation of Labor does so.
Lalwr cannot gain and muat certainly
lose by bringing class Issues Into political
contests itnd none know this better than
Intelligent union men. And none knows
It beur tha-0 Gompers himself.
OTHER L4n Tll Otn.
Journalism Is not an attractive profession
in China. It has drawbacks decidedly dan
gerous to physical comfort nnd pence cf
mind. The promised constitution nine years
away and the probability of reforms pre
ceding the event, lenda rainbow colors to
the hepea of the present meager and select
group of Chinese editors. It will be re
called that the Peking Gasette. the oldest
publication In the empire and In the world,
and until recently the only paper In the
empire, has become something of a news
paper, as well as a medium of official de
crees, being boosted out of the rut of cen
turies by the growth of genuine newspip.
rrs on the Chinese plan. From the oni
offle'al organ the number hns grown to 20o,
furnishing mental pabulum to such of 4
000,000 Inhabitants as are capable of digest
ing It and hare the price. Besides there
are a great many publications printed In
foreign languages at the treaty ports and
several bl-Ilnguals In Chinese and F.ngltsh.
The publishers appreciate the changes
going on and may be credited with arous
ing much of the prosent spirit of progress.
But offictal China. Is fearful lest the edi
tors become too important and Indiscreet,
snd has put forth several decrees eal
culated to curb every tendency to sensa
tional yeMowism. One decree requires a
guarantee fund of 75 from each publisher
for payment of fines that may be as
sessed. Another decree orders corrections
or protests against misstatements to be
published !n the next Issue of the Journal
making them. A third decree directs that
persons responsible for the publication of
matter libeling the throne or disturbing
the public peace shHll be liable to Impris
onment for not less than six months. Tem
porary suspension Is the penalty for the
divulgation of secret diplomatic Intelli
gence. These regulations are carried out.

A number of authorities on financial con
ditions In Asiatic countries agree that the
business men of India are the greatest
hoarders of money in the world. It Is
estimated that there Is close to $1,000.0X1,000
In gold hidden In the country, which Is
Increased by something like $tO,O00.0OO an
nually. Every bit of gold that can be
spared is Hidden away. Gold Is the great
Incentive to miserliness, and so deep
rooted is the greed for the yellow metal
that hoarders are unmoved by the periodic
famines which ravage the country and not
Infrequently suffer the pangs cf starvation
rather than draw on their treasure. An
effort Is bring made by British authorities
to draw out some of the vast Idle money
of the natives for the purpose of develop
ing the resources of the country. Sir
Ernst Cable, a former member of the vice
roy of India's cabinet, snys: "If the people
of India! could be persuaded to put the bulk
of their surplus wealth into the railways,
into Irrigation works and Into the develop
ment of the industrial and commercial re
sources of the continent there would grad
ually ensue a welding together of the mate
rial interests of the European and the
Indian. Such a bond of union between the
rulers and the ruled would surely go far
to promote these feelings of co-operation
nnd loyalty which are essential If the
Indian empire Is to continue to advance."
The Constantinople correspondent of the
Neu Frele Presse of Vienna says tharr
among the first of the many organizations
who marched to the Yildla Kiosk to ex
press thanks for the constitutional decree
were the burden bearers or hamalis. These
powerful, athletic Turks, for the moat part
beautiful men, despite their dirty garb,
have a well-organised society which lays
down the laws by which they are guided
In their Vocation. They come from Asiatic
Turkey, where they leave their wives while
they work Industriously and honestly for
a few years, save their earnings and t,vm
return to their homes. The bad pavements
nd the narrow, winding streets preclude
the dray In Constantinople, and these iten
take the place of the dray horse. On long
poles they may be seen carrying great
bales of goods, pianos, safes and all sorts
of heavy property. They are fana'l.-?al In
their religion and thoroughly Turkish, but
It seems that they appreciate the advance
toward liberalism, and showed th-ilr abil
ity to live up to European methods on tho
day after the demonstration, when they
struck for higher wawes.
The charge is freely made In continental
papers that the present administratis of
Portugal is in league with the lnstlgalo-a
of the assassination of the late King Don
Carlos and his son and has made no ef
fort to bring them to Justice. Thoii re
sponsible 'for the cowardly crime are held
to be well known and prominent members
of two monarchlal machines, who were
driven to desperation by the activity of
the Ill-fated monarch and of his premier,
Joao Franco, in abolishing the spoils .iys
tern, and the glaring and shameless finan
cial nnd administrative abuses upon which
they had until then fattened. While the
Instigators of the assassination are not at
the present moment In office, either at
court or In the cabinet, they are walking
about, free, known, and with undiminished
regard and honor at Lisbon, unmolested
by the government. In fact, the condl'.lons
are only very little better than at Beltf.-idt),
where the murderers of King Alexander
and yuecn Druga still figure in the en
tourage of bis successor, King Peter, pad
high in the office of the state.
The great question that Is to be settled
by the Intercolonial conference in South
Africa Is the question as to what form
the union shall take, whether it shall be a
federation, obliterating the existing colonial
boundaries, or shall be a federation simi
lar to that of Canada and Australia. It Is
Interesting to note that both British and
Boer are to be found aa advocatea of both
plans. The majority seems to be in favor
of federation and the retention of existing
colonial lines a form of federation that will
ba more in keeping with the precedent of
their British colonies. The most Interest
ing phase of the whole subject Is that In
the short years that have elapsed alnce
the Boer war the diverse Interests and
old-time enmities should apparently have
faded all away and left the possibility of
such a union which will make for the
peace and prosperity of the African colon
lea. To what stralta Count Zeppelin was re
duced three years ago appears from a let
ter sent to the Frankfurter Zeltung. The
correspondent says that at that time he
received from the count, of whom he had
never heard, a letter containing six blank
applications for money orders, with the
request that be circulate them among bis
friends in order to get money for the build
ing of a dirigible airship, as the Inventor's
money waa used up. The receiver had
never heard of him, but was so iuim.1i im

friends asked what Zeppelin's profession
had been. When they heard that he had
spent most of his life aa a cavalry officer,
and Was therefore not a practical me
chanic, they showed uo inclination to con
tribute, and regarded It aa rather an Im
pudent attempt to get money out of strang
ers. A practical appeal It plainly waa not,
but that cf a visionary. Now these same
people who were appealed to In vain are
falling over themselves to swell the na
tional fund for Zeppelin. Again nothing
succeeds like success, even in ballooning.

The great modern wars are fights for hu
manity. The old style war brought sorrow,
and evil, and death. It was often fought
for In the Interests of an Individual or a
dynasty. The warfare of today is carried
on for the good of the millions. Its success
will mean happiness, prosperity nnd life.
The boldness with which men of science
are attacking disease Is no more notable
than the faith they seem to have In ulti

What sweeter thing than work beloved,
Hard though It be and oft full long?
Attacking It, Its worth Is proved.
Then do It with a laugh and song
Within your soul,
And lose yourself In It heart whole.
God's earth beneath and sky above
Are certainly your very own.
So start right In and your worth prove;
Help others on you're not alone.
Don't be a shirk.
Just put your heart Into the work.
Half-hearted anything Is not
Worth while. Both work and play are
Perhaps to play will be your lot;
Then take what comes, as each man
With spirits gay.
Just put your heart Into your play.
Some morn, when dashed are projects fond.
And darkling clouds hang low o'er you,
1ook up and out and e'er beyond
Until with vision bright you view
A fairer way.
And put your heart into the day.
