waterways everywhere, no matter whether
thiM waterway are'the rlvera that run
down the mountalnaldca into the ocean and
the westi or. :the; waterways that converge
In the Mississippi valley and carry their
floods to the gulf. I'belleve that It la the
duty ef . those .charged, with the business of
government to develop those things upon
which a nation's prosperity depends.
""Method ef Doing- Work.
Tte-frrst question la, should the work
be do'ns?. If the work should bo done and
I believe' that It should then you people
who bellcva It should be done should agree
upon the best methods by which to do It.
But I repeat that you must not be fright
ened becsus It BiSy require an Investment.
At Bt. Leo Is last Celt they resolved that
tSOO.OOO.iK spent 1 In '-improving the water
ways of "the Mississippi valley would bring
an Interest In the way of decreased cost
of transportation . amounting to 1180,000 a
year. If that' Is .true, my friends. It Is
usurious Interest on the Investment. But
as It Is not Interest collected from anybody,
but the Interest saved, we are not liable
to the Densities- fnr nsurv Whir mv
friends, 4f It only save lAOOO.OW a year It i
would be ULptir cent Interest In Investment.
"1 believe that the plan be commenced
now. I believe that It should be a com
prehensive plan, that It should deal with
the entire subject, and that It should be a
permanent plan: that wo should begin now
to lay the foundation for the future great

These doors are operated pneumatically

II AK AH AN SAVES E0U1PMENT
Illinois Central Wtg-ei Wat Against
0ITE WAY TO CUT DOWN EXPENSE
President of Road, In Annnnl State
ment, Sara Two-Cent Fare Has
Hindered Best Plana for
A successful fight Is waged against de
preciation In equipment, according to the
annual report of President J. T. Harahan
of the Illinois Central Railroad company
Just made public. It Is the practice of this
company to replace, piece by piece, with
modern engines and cara all equipment
which passes out of existence during the
year. The entire cost of the new pur
chases, less the salvage In that passed
out, was charged to operating' expenses.
As there has been a constant increase In
sice, efficiency and cost of engines and
cars, the new equipment haa been of much
greater value than that which It has re
placed and ths value of the equipment as
whole has been fully maintained.
The excess cost of new over old equip
ment may not be charged to operating ex
penses, according to a ruling of the In
terstate Commerce commission. In order
to maintain the equipment on a basis sim
ilar to that which hag heretofore existed
there has been set apart from the income
of the year $1,046,963, which, added to other
available replacement funds, will provide
for the replacement of all equipment out
of existence at the end of the year.
The report of President Harahan de-
Clares that, although a strenuous fight was
made to practice economy because of In
come reduced by I-cent fare laws, yet an
Increase in rate of pay and a higher
amount paid for hire of equipment de
feated this endeavor, the expenses being
72.7 per cent of the Income this year, as
against 68.5 In the previous year.
Of the ,37,187,166.22, which was the total
Income for the year, reveriue from trans
portation was, of course, the principal
Item, being (5S.463.180.24.
The . company built but little new main
track during the year, 484 m.les of second
main track and 100 miles third and addi
tional track, making altogether 786 miles,
or thirty-three more than last year.

without rancor, without forgetting our

Following Governor Hughes W. B. Price,
democraMo candidate for state auditor.
talked briefly until the arrival of former
Attorney General Monnett. It was during
the tatter's speech that the democrats rea
lised they had made a mistake In being so
courteous to the republicans. Mr. Monnett
assured the farrqers they were being
robbed and they could get. no help from
the republicans. He told about the merger
of the Oreat Northern., the Burlington and
Northern Pacific Railroad ' companies,
which, he said. Increased the value of the
stock 1364,000,000 In one night by the scratch
of the pen. Dividends, he said, were paid
upon this enormous watered stock by an
Increase 1n freight rates.Then be used aev
era! illustrations of how large an amount
Is Sseo.OOO.OOO. ' A' titter ran through the
audience when the speaker failed to say
that President Roosevelt ' grabbed that
merger 'In ' his clutches and had It dis
solved by the supreme court of the United
States. Mr. Monnett caused another laugh
from the shippers In the audience when
he told of shipping cars of corn between
tws stations In Ohio, ell had reduced the
corn to tons, he said, and found the Steel
trust or the Coal trust could ship the same
number of tone at about one-third the rate,
' "If he knew anything about the classifi
cation of freight rstes he could have se
cured a better Illustration than that," said
a farmer in the audience. . Mr. Monnett
did not tell hla hearers what the Nebraska
republican legislature had done In the mat
ter of freight rate reudctlona at Its last
session, but apparently every one In the
audience knew, as there were frequent
laughs at the positions taken by the

In good ahape, acceded to the wishes of

and proved himself a good mixer and
mighty handy man. -
Who waa treasurer of the democratic
state committee during the campaign of
During the last few days that question
has teen propounded to Tom Allen, Mr.
Bryan'e chairman. "I do not know.-" was
the reply of the brother-in-law.
"Who waa treasurer of the democratic
state committee during tho campaign of
1904?" waa aaked A. S. Tibbetts, present
"I do not know," was his reply.
Dr. P. L Hall, former state chairman
and now vice chairman f the national com
mlttea, made the same reply.
The Nebraska laws provide a penalty In
the event of a failure on the part of the
treasurer of a political committee to pub
lish the receipts of the contributions and
expenditures of money used In a campaign
The democrats have no such report on
file anywhere ao far as present Investiga
tions have shown, and the name of ths
treasurer could not be secured.
A state officer haa received an official In
quiry regarding the identity of the demo
cratic treasurer and so far he has bumped
into a stone wall in trying to get the in
formation. This official haa no Intention
of bringing proceeding against the treas
urer and wanta the Information merely as
a matter of routine business. The Identity
at the man may be withheld of course be
cause he haa failed to account for the ex
penditure of the SIS.OOO which waa aent Into
Nebraska to elect Mr. Bryan to the United
States senate. A movement haa been
started, however, by the state official
which which ha believes will bring out the
name of the treasurer. And in the mean
time If any one knows and will tell this
state official will be aaved lota of worry
and hard work.

The democratic committee has at last run
against a stone wall and within a few days,
If not' hours. It is probable Harry B. Fie-
harty will be asked to move over and fall
off the ticket. The reason therefor is Just
this: - "
The populist state iommlttee, which has
turned everything ' the populists had over
to Mr. Br'an became( fearful of the conse
quences and today refused to accept the
declination of E. B. Quackenbush, the pop
ulist nominee for attorney general, and
refused to " nominate H. B. Fleharty, the
democratic 1 nominee,, for the place. For
two days tho question was discussed and
Mr. Quackenbush' wag called to Lincoln
this morning. fa left without having de
cided for sure Vrjother he will officially
decline the,popullst nomination. The dem
ocratic state committee, through Ita chair
man. Is anxious for ,the state ticket to con
sist, solely of democrats and the turn In
affalra Is very disquieting. The committee
had an Idea Mr Fleharty will not be re
moved easily, and .It .also knowa the popu
lists will not support him. There the mat
ter rests. . . .

Bryan's Core-A 11 Devices.
OMAHA. Oct. 1-To the Kditor of The
Bee: Mr. Bryan, In hla efforts to attract
votes to himself, makes me think of a
fisherman, who first baits bis hook with
a worm; that falling, ha trlea a piece of
meat, then a live minnow or a frog or an
artificial fly anything that he thinks will
tempt the fish.
In 1R92 he was shouting about the Inqui
res of the protective tariff and the high
prices caused (he claimed) by It, and his
associates all over the country, by doing
the same kind of talking, succeeded In
catching enough auckera to overturn the
protective tariff and enact a tariff for rev
enue, which In tha neat four years fell
$202,000,000 short of producing revenue
enough to run the nation In a time of pro
Then, In 189S, having knocked the high
prlcea completely out of the box, to use a
biste ball expression, he announced that
what wa needed to cure all the Ills with
which wa were afflicted was the free coin
age of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1, "with
out the aid or consent of any other na
tion," but In the trail of talk that he left
all over and round about the country not
a word could be heard about tariff.
Then, In 1900, while still professing his
love for IS to 1, quoting the words of Ruth
to Naomi In his devotion to M, he added
antl-lmperlallsm to his stock of bait, and
tried to scsre the country Into swallowing
It, but failed again, and the answer to his
fears came In the Immediate reduction of
the army as soon as the Philippine Insur
rection waa quelled, an Insurrection that
we would not have had to meet If Mr.
Bryan had not exerted his Influence in
favor of confirming the treaty of Paris.
Not a word about tariff that year, al
though prlcea had again gone up.
Then he baited hla hook with initiative
and referendum, and tried government
ownership of railways, but he only made
one cast with that, and has been trying
to forget It ever since, for even the solid
south would not follow him In that. Now
ha haa got back to the tariff again and
guaranteed bank deposits, and haa taken
up publicity of contributions as a side line.
I am not a banker, and I never had aa
much money deposited In banks aa I would
like to have, but It looks to me a good deal
like a plan to make tha ateady, conserva
tive banker responsible for the' reckless,
speculative one, and without his having a
chance to aay anything about the kind of
speculations his bank must be responsible
for. I cannot anyway aea what good In
panicky times a guarantee fund of 1 per
cent of the deposits would do if one-half
or more of the depositors should want their
money at once, aa they probably would.
Mr. Bryan does not say a word about It
to 1, antl-lmperlallsm, Initiative and refer
endum or government ownership this year;
but no one haa heard from him any Inti
mation that he haa recanted any of these
fallacies. On the contrary, four years sgo,
I think It was, when ha waa starting out
on his campaign, I heard him say id a
speech at Gretna that "The free coinage of
silver would again become an issue should
the money situation again become acute."
Mr. Bryan might be entitled thla year
"the Great Refuser." - He refused to dis
cuss Colonel Gutter's lettf r; he refused to
dscuss Mr. Hearst's telegram, from Paris;
he refused to, discuss tha Brownsville inci
dent; he refused to discuss tbe Wast Vir
ginia democratic platform, which proposes
to disfranchise the colored voters. He Is
like the Indian chief of old times, who
claimed to be able to make himself deaf
at will, snd who always became deaf when
anything was said that he did not want to
Mr. Bryan haa done nothing for twelve
years but talk, and take In the gate re
ceipts, and against him stands a man who
for eight years haa said little, but has done
much, and who haa been associated, with
more permanent constructive and admin
istrative work that falls to the lot of
most men In a lifetime, and who does not
decline to discuss any public question.
Politics and Business.
OMAHA, Oct 4 To the Editor of The
Pet: The continuation . of our present
piosperity dtpends to quite an extent upon
the crois, but to a still lapser extent upon
business conditions and these condition are
Influenced less by actual production of
crops than by confidence. Th Old Doctor
(aa George Harvey .rails him) tells us that
a bank guarantee that we will get back
our money If we deposit It, Is tha very
thing to produce confidence. Of course
the man who deposits hla money In the
bank wants to have confidence that he can
grt It when he needs It. Bo does the man
who Invests his money in any kind of
business want to know that he can get
his money out when his accounts recelv-
sble are due, A large share of these ac
counts receivable are from the laboring
class and their ability to pay Is based upon
their ability and opportunity to earn.

most timid thing in the world. Then If
money gets scared and hides itself, we have
bard times, and bard times means no de
mand for labor, no oppo.tun.ty to use capi
tal and thus both labor and capital suffer.
It Is a fact that money la not aa easy
as it was thirty days ago. Offers to loan
were plenty. Now there are none. One
of the laigest construction comp-tnl s in
Omaha contemplates doubling Its capacity
and putting In large distributing yards
on the belt line, but at a recent meeting
of the s.o. kholders It was decided that It
ould be su cldal to take the ilsk and go
ahead with ths improvement until w
knew whether the man who helped by his
action In congress to bring the hard times
uccaslcned by the Wilson bill would get
another opportunity to bring calamity upon
us. Each tlms he has come before the
people with a new cure-all, this old doctor,
who applies only one remedy for all
diseases, but changes ths remedy periodi
cally, say every four ears.
If we wish for a continuation of the un
paralleled prosperity that we have enjoyod
under Roosevelt would It not be the b.-tter
part of valor aa well as discretion to vote
for ths man who has helped to formulate
the Roosevelt poll 1. s and who has suc
cessfully helped to administer themT Can
we not be more aura of this prosperity
under Taft, who Is In hsrmony with these
principles than with Bryan, who haa been
wrong on nearly every national Issue since
he waa accidentally brought to the public
gate back in the nineties?
Surely the laboring man haa not for
gotten the time when ho was glad to gat
work: enough, to earn food for hlratelf
and family and aurely he will not be fool
ish enough te run th risk of a repetition
cf those times. If lis Is. then be ought to
suffer the conaequences alone, but un
fortunately be cannot da thla. The In
nocent wife and children auffer even more
than he, for as a rule such a man eats first
and ths family can have what la left. Now
is tha opportunity for tbe wife and mother
to uae tier good Influences to get husband
and aon to vote not only for the full dinner
pall, but far a chance to have employment
tbat shall necessjtato tha use of any dinner
pall at all. One experience like that of 'U
and ' la enough for me.

OMAHA. Oct. 8.To the Editor of The
Bee: The present county court house was
built within the contract price with no
extraa ani waa a first clasa Job. W have
voted $1,000,000 to be expended for a new
court house, the city hsvlag outgrown the
present building. These funds are placed
In the hands of our Board of County Com
missioners to b expended by them. They
are the only safeguard the taxpayers have
for this money. We want It built within
this appropriation. We want no extras.
We went no graft. We want a building 1
worth tha money and something we csn be
In regard to the lsst building the county
built, the county hospital, 1 never have
seen a taxpayer who said he was . proud
of It. I am told" by a party having some
thing to do with bulltftng a part of It,
that it waa a string of extras from be
ginning to end. A part of It fell down
whllo building. Who waa to blame for
that? I underatand the county paid $9,000
to have It rebuilt. A man down In the
atate of Vermont, where I was visiting,
told me tho extras on our county hospital
were $10,000. I asked two of the commis
sioners who were on the board while the
building was being built and one ssld $,vi,.
000 and the other said more. I, as a tax
payer, would not object so much to the
extras If they had built us a decent build
ing, but the brick used In the main build
ing would have been rejected for the In
side wall of a packing house.
Now what are we going to get? It will
depend all on your Board of County Com
missioners. I have confidence In the pres
ent board and think they are better than
the average of the boards we have had In
the laat twenty-five years, but we elect
two-fifths of the bosrd this election, who
will stay In the board for three years and
have the expending of $1,000,000 for court
house and about $400,000 and $oC0,000 in In
heritance tax, besides the county levy.
To show that the county hospital has
been a bill of expense since It wss built,
will say that ' the county haa Just paid
about $3,000 to have the outside walls
pinned up, ao It will stand a while. I
think the taxpayers In Douglas county are
mora Interested In who they elect county
commissioners this fall than any other
part of the election. Get men
whose untarnished records, whose In
tegrity haa never been questioned. We
want no political shyster or grafter. W
want mea whose honesty will stand against
boodle and boodlera. as firm aa the rocks
of Gibraltar, for we are going to have
F. W. CORL1S9,
Work of tho Registrars.
OMAHA, Oct. 8. To the Editor of The
Bee: I see by the newspapers that in sev-'
eral precinct on last registration day a
large number of voters were unable to reg
ister after watting in the registration booth
for a long period of time.
Aa one of the registrars In the Fourth
precinct of tha Eleventh ward I would ltk
to record my experience, so that In the fu
ture aome way may be fixed In which nil
voters may have an equal chance to reg
ister. In our precinct we registered 202 voters,
only on voter gclng away unable to regis
ter. Wa worked from 8 a. m. until 8:30 a.
m.. In the neighborhood of twenty contin
uous hours, for tho targe sum of $3.
I do not think that when our representa
tives framed the last registration law they
had any Idea of the imn ense amount cf
work they compelled- .the rrglstrira to do,
but , the , fact is they have surrounded - It
with so muetf'fdollshfteFa and red tape, that
If lived up to would disfranchise half the.
voters In the community.
We were nppclnted from 8 a. m. until 9
p. m. In that time we are supposed to enter
the reglstrster'B name In five different books
making out a complete list of the total
regittratlon and having to ruli each book
ard algn our names Innumerable times. As
each of us bad to go to dinner between
!i:S0 and 7 p. m., we could only enter the
names In two books at one time. If we
had lived up to tha letter of the law, as
we had a perfect right to do, we would
have turned away from seventy-five to
1 people, many of thtm having waited
from one-half to three-quarters of an hour
to get a chance to register.
. I write this' letter simply to bring the
matter before our next legislators, so that
If possible they will frame a law In which
thero is considerable less red tape nnd
which will give a great deal mere satisfac
tion .both to wters and registrars. j
Thanking you for your courtesy, I am
your most respectfully.
