( ' President Roosevelt called Governor
Haskell on tho carpet and then Mr.

It does not make much difference
where Mr. Hearst got those Standard
Oil letters. The burning question is,
has he any more of them?

Mr. Bryan declares that he will ad
dress no more letters to President
Roosevelt. His decision will save him
much embarrassment and discom
fiture. The New York World Is now sup
porting Charles E. Hughes for gover
nor of the state, a Job much more to
Its liking than leading the forlorn hope
under the Bryan banner.
Chancellor Day declares that Presi

Chancellor Day's consistency.
New York business men complain
that they have a great deal of trouble

The New York World is advising
Chauler, the democratic candidate for

Good citizens, regardless of politi
cal affiliations, will Join In the welcome

cltlrens at the Auditorium this even

Governor Hughes, although he has
filled but one public office and has
never served the people outside of his
own state, has become a conspicuous
figure in the public eye. He has won
his prominence by his own efforts, In
face of the determined opposition cf
politicians within and without his
party, and has done valiant work in
purhln'g the progress of reform in
American official life. He is a re
former who does things and as such Is
dear to the American public.
Those who imagine they want to
listen to a word painter or orator will
perhaps be .disappointed at first with
Governor Hughes. There is no daz
zling effect about his oratory, but he
has wonderful and effective lucidity
In sifting out the essential truths of
whatever subjects he undertakes to
discuss. Those who hear him will
leave with a better understanding of
the real truths of the Issues in the
present campaign and an enlarged
view of the best method of achieving
a satisfactory1 solution of the prob
lems that are pressing for considera
tion of congress and the people.
A condition precedent to the exer
cise of the elective "privilege in Omaha
and South Omaha is registration as a
legally qualified voter. .The wisdom
of this provision of the law is unques
tioned. It is absolutely necessary and
essential to protect the ballot and pre
vent indiscriminate frauds against the
franchise. . Too many of the voters
seem to look upon the requirement as
trenching in some way upon their per
sonal liberty andre inclined to resent
by innuendo, at. least, the law. This
resentment all too frequently takes the
form of failure to, register. On elec
tion day much regret may be expressed
at the inability to vote, hut the neg
lect to register stands in the way.
The franchise privilege is one of
the most sacred charges laid on the
citizen. It makes each voter responsi
ble in his own person for the adminis
tration of tho government. He cannot
evade this responsibility, even by fail
ure to vote, and if he has not voted
any dissatisfaction he may feel is his
own fault. For this, If for no other
reason, every man who is entitled to
vote should exercise the privilege.
Tuesday, October 6, is the next day
for registration in Omaha, and all who
did not register at the primary election
should get their names on the list
. IMMIGRATION AXD BCftlXESS.
Official reports for the month ending
with September Bhow that the tide of
Immigration has begun, to ebb again,
the number of laborers arriving from
other shores being considerably in ex
cess, for the month, of those returning.
For the first time since last October
the balance is in favor of Immigration,
the arrivals for the last week in' Sep
tember exceeding the departures by
about 700. Discussing the changed
conditions, a writer in the New York
Press say 8:
Since tha panic, an outgo of fc.T,uuO work
ing people with only 270,000 people coming
In haa actually decreased the laboring pop
ulation of the United State by 207,000.
Even last month the weekly excess of de
partures averaged 6.000. ' There Is no
parallel In our history to these after-panic
figures. Following the panic of 18P3, an
nual Immigration was Immediately cut
down from 602,000 to 314,000, while annual
emigration Increased from 138,000 to 190,000.
This left the arrivals still the larger num
ber; but on the other hand tha a,utumn
season did not check the outgo. The fiscal
year 1895 saw Immigration dwindle to 280,
000 and emigration rlae to 216,000. Follow
ing 187S, the effect of the commercial de
pression also lasted longer than a year,
emigration in 1875 being .nearly double that
of 1873. and immigration in 1876 being barely
one-third of that during the panic year.
The fact that the tide of immigra
tion has set America-wards' is signif
icant in Indicating that the news has
percolated through the old world" that
business conditions in America are
again becoming normal, and that an
era of prosperity is setting in with
the prospect of work at good wages for
all. .The demand for labor is increas
ing in all of the industrial centers of
tho country and the foreign laborers
who returned to their homes when tho
depression set in last fall will be the

"DO YETERAK8 ' LIVB TOO LOXGt"
A reader of The Bee, who presents a
record showing that he wore the blue
from Bull Run to Appomatox, takes
Mr. Bryan severely to task for an edi
torial which was printed in the Omaha
World-Herald finding fault with the
veterans of the civil war because they
persist in living. The editorial in
question was printed in the Omaha
World-Herald on November 1892,
and was as follows;
The next congress mill hae to wrestle
with one deficiency of tOC.OuO.OuO. This is
on account of the pensions. The appropria
tion for pensions for the next your must
be not less than llju.OUO.OOO. It (a therefore
easy arithmetic to perceive that tha ap
propriation that congress must make for
pensiona at the next session must aggre
gate not loss than lk UUO.OmX Thia tre
mendous sum would of Itself be enough to
run a reasonable government. One would
not complain if ft were an honorable' debt,
but a large proportion la not debt because
It ai never earned by any act of pat
rlotiam or heroic service. The government
Is held up and Despoiled of no mean por
tion of this, and It aeenia helpless to de
fend 1'ie!f. One cannot hlp. being wuiiuu
to know how many inure years it will take
to exhaust the generation which feels Itself
Injured by tha war. It la safe to aay that
never did a generation display such longev
ity. In Justice to Mr. Bryan It should be
explained that he was not at that time
connected with the Omaha World-Herald,
as It was some time after that
when his populist friends bought him
a share in the paper The editor of
the World-Herald at that time and the
man responsible for Its editorial ut
terances was Gilbert Monell Hitchcock,
present editor of the paper, a member
cf congress from the second Nebraska
district and a candidate for re-election.
If the veterans who helped save the
nation have any apologies to make for
still being alive they should make
them to Mr. Httchoock.
IDEAS FROM C1TIZEXS.
It is perhaps well not to relieve the
minds of many Americans that
the government at Washington can
do anything, can comply with any re
quest of citizens, but the worries of
the department heads might be re
duced if more citizens would take into
consideration the obstacles in the way
of acting upon the plans or policies
which they advocate. As an illustra
tion, the Navy department is now en
gaged in the diplomatic work of try
ing to pacify some California citizens
who are wrought up because Admiral
Sperry, in command of the touring bat
tleships, has declined to bring home a
few shiploads of Nubian goats. The
Californlans are convinced that the
Nubian goats, If properly crossed with
the native, species, would solve the
milk problem that is now prominent
in many large American cities. To
this end, they have appealed from Ad
miral Sperry's decision and are asking
the Navy department to go into the
goat business on a large scale.
While the Navy department does
not feel called upon to butt In on the
goat question, the Department of Agri
culture begs leave to report that it
has been doing a lot of work along the
lines ' suggested by the irate Califor
nianB, with the prospect that Nubian
or Assyrian goats may be Imported to
this country in large numbers and
trained to serve aa allies to the cow
in the production of milk. The de
partment has discovered that the As
syrian or Nubian goats live well in the
milder climates in this country. They
produce milk that is considered better
and purer than that of the cows and
entirely free from tubercular germs.
These goats, it is stated, are very dif
ferent from the American type, being
tame, odorless, and requiring delicate
food. They will not thrive on bill
board posters and are not vagrants by
nature, seldom caring to wander from
their own yards or pastures. They are
famous for their milk producing quali
ties and can be kept, much more
cheaply than cows. If experiments
now being conducted by the Agricul
tural department experts result satis
factorily plans will be made for intro
ducing into this country a special
breed of goats with special reference
to their milk-giving qualities.
An association of southern demo
crats in New York has issued a circu
lar urging voters to support Bryan
and explaining that "If Bryan should
attempt harmful legislation, a repub
lican senate would prevent it." Even
the democrats appreciate the blessing
of having a republican senate stand
ing between the people and Bryan
Ism. Mr. Bryan is such a clever enter
tainer that it would be a pity to remove-
him from the platform he has
shown himself so well fitted for to put
him in an office for which he has as
yet developed no qualifications. The
people realize this and will decline to
part with their fun for the purpose of
trying an uncertain experiment.
Watson says he does not expect to
be elected. Debs says he would resign
if he thought there was any chance of
his being neglected. Hisgen says he is
not particularly hopeful, and Mr. Cha
fin admits that his election is far from
being cinched. The choice then would
appear to lie among Mr. Taft, Mr.
Bryan and August Gllhaus.
The splendid showing of Nebraska's
farm wealth, Indicated by the report
of Commissioner Ryder, must surprise
even those who thought they knew the
foundation of the state's greatness.
It is certainly a Justification for the
pride that all Nebraska's citizens take
in their home state.
As much as the country does not
enjoy the spectacle of T. C. Piatt rep
resenting the great state of New York
in the United States senate, it would
prefer to stand for him rather than
change him for Mr. Bryan's friend and
political chum, "Flngy" Connors.
The rush for the new lands in South
Dakota is a cheerful algn that some of
the country's population, at least, is
endeavoring to get "back to the land."
Urban life has many attractions, but
the rural is coming to the front with
allurements as powerful.
"The rock throwlngs of Mr. Taft,
Mr. Bryan and President Roosevelt are
as deplorable as they are unseemly,"
says Mr. Hearst's New York American.
Apparently Mr. Hearst thinks he is en
titled to a monopoly of the rock-throwing
Japan has decided "not to maintain

If the World-Herald Is to be be

fact, all the evils that attend human
ity's uncertain course from the cridle

of dope the Bryanltes have been hand

poor year, however, to undertake to

A Sigh for Retara of Old-Time March
It Is pleasing to note that a republican
club of Wyandotte county, Kansas, which
la to escort Mr.' Taft when he speaks at
Topeka next week, will on that occasion
appear In Indian costume, war paint, feath
ers, moccasins and all. We say the an
nouncement Is pleasing because it ia a
hopeful sign of the revival of the pic
turesque in politics. Our political demon
strations have lost much of the scenic and
spectacular since people becajne business
like enough to attend demonstrations in
their "everyday clothes." Parades and
processions are not what they were. A
business men's procession in New York
may be Impressive from Its representation
of the opinion of trade, commerce and fi
nance, and It exerts a moral Influence that
is powerful, If not decisive, but neverthe
less it does not delight the eye nor tickle
the fancy aa did the torchlight parades.
These have hereabouts all but fallen into
desuetude, as the 'still hunt" has sup
planted display, and there are no Indica
tions of young enthusiasm panting to be
organised into "battalions" either at its
own expense or on funds contributed by
statesmen. Perhaps the older way yielded
to the prooess of changing opinion and can
not be recalled, but if It were possible of
revival tie nights would be filled with
music and ti.e darkness almost dispelled by
the glare of thousands of torches. Those
of us who recall the greaC torch ight parades
of the past recall them through the me
dium of golden, rosy memories of youth.
Looking back we see the "Wide Awakes"

torchlight parade waa a feature until com
paratively recent campaign's, but the last
occasion on which the idea was utilized to
the extent of apectacular possibilities was
in 18M, when "Plumed Knights" revived
some of the glories of the past. Now tha
"torchlight" haa passed away, cirrying
with It a business once lucrative of pur
veying torches and uniforms. In Philadel
phia, aa In other cities, there are still
"marching clubs," but these are not what
the "Wide Awakes" were. Hundreds of

The War department haa refused to con
sider the request for a court of Inquiry
preferred by an army officer who believed
that he waa not fairly treated In an effl
clenry report filed by a senior officer. The
secretary of war has decided that the au
thors of reports tf this kind should not he
restricted by tho prospect that the candid
expression of their honest opinion regard
ing fitness of subordinates should be ham
pered or otherwise Influenced by the pros
pect of the proceedings of courts of In
quiry. As Is very well known, the subject
"f an efficiency rewrt always has the opj
portunlty to file his reply to criticisms
and to make his own defense In his own
way so long as there Is nothing In the way
of vituperation In the answer; a rule which
applies rs well to the composition of the
efficiency report Itself. This provision for
defense in the case of tin officer who be
lieves himself unfairly treated or
"wronged" in any way Is regarded by the
War department as answering all the needs
of the situation.
Colonel William F. Btewart of the coast
artillery corps, who has been residing at
Fort Grant," Arlx., under orders from the
president, has been before an army retir
ing board In Washington last week. The
board, of which Brigadier General W. V.
Hall, t 8. A., is president, has not com
pleted Its examination. No case of retire
ment In the army has attracted so much
attention as that of Colonel Stewart. No
doubt Is entertained In tho War depart
ment concerning the findings of the board
and there la Is every prospect that Colonel
Stewart will be found Incapacitated for
active duty and retired.
The War department continues to re
ceive by the hundreds the applications for
the civil war campaign badge. The re
quests must bo denied, of course, since the
badges authorized are for officers and en
listed men In the service and that for those
In the service the badges constitute a por
tion of the uniform. Among the requests
received lately are those from members of
the organized militia, who have observed
that officers and men of tha District of
Columbia organisation havo -received cam
paign badges. By authority of the presi
dent, certain distinctive badges are author
ised for officers and men In the regular
service, and there Is warrant for supposing
that these badges sre' to form part of the
uniform required under the Dick law to
fully equip the national guard In accord
ance with that act. Moreover, the badges
are to be Issued to Individuals and'nut by
the method under which the other articles
of the uniform are Issued.
The War department haa held In the pre
vailing question concerning the employment
of army bands outside the service that the
law applies equally to the band as an or
ganization and to the enlisted musicians
who are members thereof In the prohibi
tion against competing with local civilian
musicians. It la pointed out that It ia an
error to suppose that the pay of members
of army bands la In consideration for their
mll'itary service only. They have recently
been granted k substantial Increase of pay
which was understood by congress to be In
consideration of the patronage of which
they are deprived by the act of restrictive
legislation embodied in the law of May
12.' The execution of the statue may be
enforced by a resort to disciplinary meas
ures If necessary, the character and ex
tent of wh1ch measures must In the na
ture of the case be left to the Judgment
and discretion of the proper commanding
officer. In a case arising in the execution
of a statute which Involves disobedience of
orders the offender . should be, pro
ceeded against for that offense; other
wise a charge should be formed under the
thirty-second article of war, a proper pen
alty being imposed upon conviction by the
court charged with the trial of the case.
Army officers who have survived with
entire credit to themselves this year's phys
ical test In the army of the ninety-mile
three-day horseback ride entertain what
may be described aa a majority view that
the exaction as It now prevails In official
orders Is needlessly severe on both man
and beast. It was appreciated when the
president's scheme of promoting physical
endurance ' was promulgated that it made
use of conditions likely to prevail In an
emergency by applying them as a test of
personal flteness. The army ride has some
thing to be said in Its favor to the extent
that it compels the sedentary officer to
get out Into the open and exercise. But
beyond that It establishes little In the way
of demonstration of professional qualifica
tions and the conservative opinion which
Is not likely to prevail to any extent dur
ing the present administration in things
either military or naval Is entirely In fa
vor of a modification of the teat so as to
bring It down to a three-day ride of fif
teen miles a day, or twenty miles at the
outside. This would not fatigue officers
or wear out animals, as has been the case
In the three-day ninety-mile ride, espe
cially on the first day tho War depart
ment officers rode to Fort Myer, when
the weather was sultry almost to suffoca
tion. A distance of forty-five miles on
horseback in three days would accomplish
all that tho ninety-mile ride has realised.
It would furnish the same evidence of In
dividual skill and endurance without the
needless hardship wh'ich la now imposed.

POLITICS IN NEBRASKA.
Leigh World: In reply to tha Roosevelt
letter, Bryan attacks the Roosevelt poli
cies. And yet he claims to have originated
most of them.
Stanton Picket: Nebraska has good rea
son to feel proud of such a governor as
George L. Sheldon and his majority this
fall will be a record breaker.
Nebraska City Press: From all over the
state come reports of the continued esteem
felt for Governor Sheldon. Mr. Sheldon
undoubtedly will carry the state this fall
by one of the largest majorities ever ac
corded a candidate for that office.
Schuyler Free Lance: Well, the old fight
for governor of two years ago between
Sheldon and Shallenberger will be fought
over and the results will be the same. The
Free Lance was for Sheldon two years
ago and was right and he has proven al
right. Syracuse Journal: Bryan opened fire on
Roosevelt, and in so doing exposed his most
vulnerable points. As a result of which Mr.
Bryan's arguments are being shot so full
of holes by Mr. Roosevelt that there Is
nothing left of them to entice anyone who
reads to change his vote to the perpetual
North Platte Tribune: Will the farmers
of Lincoln county vote against six cent
hogs, fifty cent corn, forty cent oats, six
cent beef and seventy-five cent wheat? Do
they expect democratic, success to bring
higher prices? Did democratic success In
tha past bring higher or lower prices?
These are pertinent questions.
North Platte Tribune: Taft's western tour
is proving a winner; everywhere he Is re
ceiving tremendous ovations. He 1s not a
spellbinder, but his plain words, honestly
spoken, and his personality attracts the
people and enthuses them. Here In Ne
braska, the home of Bryan, he has been
as enthusiastically received as elsewhere.
Tekamah Journal: It is a notable fact
that every country newspaper in this con
gressional district that claims to be an in
dependent newspaper is favorable to Mr
Latta for congress, which leads us to re
mark that a man's Independence in politics
where political principles are at stake is
generally governed by the pockctbook of
the wealthiest candidate.
Stockvlile Republlcan-Faber; The republi
can party In Nebraska has proven Its right
to public confidence. No party ever ful
filled its promises so completoly as did
the republicans of the state in the last
legislative session. The old debt created
by fusion extravagance is being rapidly ex
tinguished, railroad regulation Is an accom
plished republican fact and not a mere
democratic promise, and all the affairs of
the state are being Intelligently and econom
Ord Qulzi If we are to have bank guar
anty of deposits, let it be a voluntary thing.
If any bank wants to be Insured, aa It may.
It can advertise the fact end get the benefit
if any there Is. But this making the state
or union guarantee all the deposits of th
banks is as big a humbug as Bryan ever
advocated, and this is saying a good deal.
iWe will bet a printing press against a
second-hand toothpick that when Bryan
runs for office again he will not be ad
vocating bank guaranty of deposits.
Crete Vldette Herald: Mr. Shallenberger
is a clever speaker. He puts up a pretty
strong and quite plausible argument
agalnat postal savings banks and espouses
in clarion voice and apparent logical se
quence the great benefits to be derived
from a guarantee deposit law. It strikes
us that the most forceful argument In
favor of the savings bank law, and one
which knocks Mr. Shallenberger's recent
discussion into a cocked hat was the argu
ment used by Mr. Shallenberger himself,
all through his campaign two years ago,
when the two paramount issues which ha
urged upon the voters with great earnest
ness wer two-cent per mile fare on rail
roads, and the immediate adoptl6n of a law
for "postal savings banks." To be con
sistent he ought to tell the people wherein
he was wrong In his last campaign. He

Kearney Hub: Shallenberger 'is the can
didate for goevrnor of the democratic and
populist parties. As. a democrat standing
on the democratic platform, he is In favor
of the fullest measure of personal liberty
and especially of self-government for cities.
As a populist, standing on the populist
platform, he Is also In favor of county
option. In Omaha and South Omaha he
can be for local license and In' a' country
community for county option. But suppose

to square himself on the two platforms

Oh, tender, lovely woman Is
A thing of down and satin;
Some snot of deathless roses she
Should make her habitat In.
How carefully she wraps her up
When winter smirla and ranklaa;
A aealskln sack upon her back
And gause upon her ankles!
Oh. gracious lovely woman Is
In Uilead the balm, she;
The ministering angel here
Man'a stay in storm and oalm, she.

Through fate's outrageous twisters
And with fair lips aha soundly rips
Her luck lens errant sisters'.
Oh, fragile lovely women lsr
Behold the "weaker vessel,"
Unfitted, by her feeble frame.
With stress and rutb to wrestle.
Not hers to WaLk, "not hers to work,
With ease her path we hem, sir
So that Bhe may but shop ail day
And "bridge" till 4 a. in., slrl
Oh, darling lovely woman la

Our ever present Joke, ghe.
Without her life would be but gray
And we hut dull, sad foxes:

And sundry paradoxes!
