Terminal taxation was won only
pfter a five-year campaign incessantly
waged against discouraging obstacles.
The terminal tax law enacted by the
republican legislature and signed by
Governor Sheldon ended an abuse of
the rankest sort by which the most
valuable railroad property In Omaha,
South Omaha and other cities escaped
municipal taxation entirely and the tax
burden belonging on the railroads was
piled onto the shoulders of Individual
axpayers. The lowest estimate of the
axes thus evaded by the railroads in
Omaha alone was $100,000 a year, or
the equivalent ot an added 1 mill on
the city tax rate Imposed upon every
private property owner.
When the fight for terminal taxa
tion was on the astounding spectacle
was presented of an open alliance be-
ween the democrats and the railroads,
negotiated by Mr. Bryan's brother-in-
law, as chairman of the democratic
state committee, by which the tax
shirking railroads were given the help
of all the fusion members of the legls-
ature who could be influenced by
Brother-ln-Law Tom." In spite of
this democratic treachery to the peo
ple, the terminal tax law was passed
and put into effect, and we are just
about to reap the benefit of the first
tax levied under its provisions.
What are the taxpayers of Omaha
and South Omaha going to do about it?
Are they going to reward the demo
cratic sell-outs and punish the repub
licans who stayed on the firing line for
them? It is the irony of fate that the
democrats are presenting for election
to the legislature in this county the
two men who, in the legislature of
1897, were most directly responsible
for inserting in the Omaha city charter
the clause exempting railway terminals
from taxation, which proved to be
worth at least a million dollars to the
Do the taxpayers of Omaha, South
Omaha and Douglas county want to
put themselves in a position where the
rest of the state will assume that the
mighty battle for terminal taxation
has been so soon forgotten? Is it not
fair to say that the republicans who
fought the battle and won are more to
be trusted to hold the prize than the
democrats who tried to scuttle the
PAPER FROM CO? A' STALKS.
Government chemists, after a series
of experiments and investigations, de
clare that a good quality of print paper
can be manufactured from cornstalks,
and at a cost much below tnat now in
curred in manufacturing it from wood
The paper supply has been a source
of justified worry for a number of
years. The destruction ot the forest
areas has caused an almost complete
elimination of the sources , of wood
pulp in this country, and the supply
has been drawn largely from Canada
for a number of years. As a result the
prices have increased to the point
where tho entire paper consuming
trade has been seriously affected. If
'he results of the experiments by the
government experts are shown to be
practical, the discovery will be of
marked value to one of the largest in
dustries in the country. It will add.
incidentally, a new value to the farms
of the great corn belt, and also pro
vide a way for putting one of the big
truBts out of business. It is as well,
perhaps, not to become too sanguine
over the cornstalk discovery. Chem
ists have been working for years in a
search for a satisfactory substitute for
wood pulp. From time to time the
canebrakes of the south lands have
been looked upon as available for this
Lurpose, and the meek and lowly cac
tus of the western plains has been
heralded as a pulp producer, but the
results have never Justified either the
hopes or predictions of the scientists
It Is to be hoped that better success
will come from the experiments with
THE MISSISSIPPI PLAX.
A band of Mississippi citizens arose
in their might the other night, near
the city of Jackson, ami hanged two
negroes who were charged with hav
ing shot a white railroad conductor.
Then they burned the horue of the
negroes and those of other negro resi
dents in the vicinity. The bodies of
the two negroes were left hanging
from a limb near the railroad tracks
bo that Booker T. Washington, who
was to pass the station the next day
on. his way to Memphis, could see
them. The day before the lynching
occurred, the Jackson Issue, the paper
owned and edited by J. K. Vardaman,
former governor of the state, printed
the following editorial:
If Booker T. "Washington makes a half
dosen more speeches In tho slate of Mis.
slsalppl, mark the prediction: It will be
the cause of a few Insolent negroes being
hung and a source of infinite worry lo the
housekeeper who is dally confronted mm,
the aervant problem. Kor all of which we
will be Indebted to a few pale-faced negro
philists who encourage Dr. Washington In
his nefarious work.
Booker T. Washington's only of
fense is that he conducts a great
school for negroes in Alabama and has
become a factor in the educational
movement of the south. He is con
tinually urging the negroes to learn
trades, to make themstlve skilled
workmen and to take their part in the
industrial life of the south. In doing
this he has awubed the hatred of the
politicians of the south of the Varda-
man type, who resent any effort to
raise the negro from a condition of
practical serfdom. Negroes of the
north will do well to remember the
Jackson ruse when they are urged to
vote for Mr. Bryan. Wherever demo
crats are In power, the negro Is dis
franchised and denied his rights lie

THE SALARY OF A BISHOP.
Rev. Alexander Mann of Boston hae
declined to accept the position of
bishop of Washington, because he
states that he has no private income
nd cannot afford to live in Washing
ton and meet the demands made upon
a bishop on a salary of $5,000 a year.
Bishop Brent, now in the Philippines,
recently declined the Washington post.
explaining that he considered it bis
duty to remain in the Philippines, and
further that he could not afford, from
a financial standpoint, to make tne
The late Bishop Satterlee had a pri
vate income of $50,000 a year and is
credited with having used practically
all of it. Some of the Washington
papers are urging that the salary of
the bishop of that diocese be increased
to at least $10,000 a year, and the
suggestion has caused much discussion
in Episcopal church circles. It Is
urged that the clergy is underpaid at
best and that it is Impossible to se
cure men of high ability to fill such
posts as that at Washington unless
they have means of their own. That
the possession of a private fortune
should be admitted as a qualification
for a bishop .of the church In Wash
ington or elsewhere is a jar to the
sensibilities of churchmen, and it is a
source of regret that consecrated
clergymen should hesitate to under
take a great work through fear of
failure due to poverty.
BUYING THE ELECTION.
As soon as the results of the election
in 1S96 was definitely known William
J. Bryan issued an address to the bi
metalllsts of the nation, in which he
charged that the republican victory
had been won by the corrupt use of
money, by coercion and the work of
syndicates and trusts. He has reit
erated thin statement from time to
time, until perhaps he believes It.
Now he announces that the repub
licans are going to buy the election
again this year. In speeches at Alton
and Chicago on Monday Mr. Bryan de
clared that the republicans were at
tempting to raise a fund of $1,000,000
for the purpose ot lining up the trusts,
the money loaners, the banks and syn
dicates and for using the mosey "as
they have used It year after year."
Ike Hill, a famous New Jersey dem
ocrat who figured prominently in poli
tics at Washington for many years,
once replied, when asked just before
election what the outlook in New Jersey
was, "We've got 'em whipped if they
don't buy us." Mr. Bryan practically
declares a similar situation to exist
today. He believes the democrats will
win if they are not bought before elec
tion. It seems impossible for Mr. Bryan
to avoid indulgence In such buncombe,
which in this case is an Insult to the
intelligence and integrity of the Ameri
can voters. The men who decide elec
tions in this country are not bought
and sold like cigars. The farmers and
worklngmen to whom Mr. Bryan has
been making his most eloquent appeals
for support will not be slow to resent
his charge that they may be bribed to
vote for or against him.
The death of Alfred Darlow will
come with a keen sense of personal
loss to many newspaper men and other
writers throughout the world. Mr.
Darlow was widely known and greatly
admired for other qualifications than
those of a successful advertising man.
He had the peculiar personal charm of
a man of great literary attainments
and warm personality. His work al
ways bore the evidence of discrimi
nating taste and was effective because
it was carefully done.
The campaign in Nebraska is warm
ing up fast enough and the democratic
barrel is spouting in every direction.
The extravagant claims made by the
Bryanite shouters are now being bol
stered by pipe line streams from the
national committee in their desperg
tlon to make good.
While talking about political pros
poets, remember that no democrat can
pobsibly be elected to office in Nebraska
without republican votes, and there is
no reason why a republican should
vote for a democrat this year.
Don't forget that Saturday of this
week is the last day for registration,
and that you must register if you want
to vote, either at the election this fall
or the city primaries next spring. No
former registration la good.

to give the country the better administra

one answer. Mr. Taft has occupied Im
portant public positions for a score of
years, and nss always and uniformly made
good. His judicial decisions have been
assailed chiefly by those who have not
read them, but nobody has yet charged
him with falling to administer the law

do. His distinguished career In the orient
and subsequently In the cabinet, has re

made good? could be submitted to the
electorate, the vote in the affirmative
would be well nigh unanimous.

AN OtTHAUEOlS ACT.
Sample of Oklahoma Methods Prac
ticed In Nebraska.
The assault upon Mr. and Mrs. William
R. Hearst by a Nebraska deputy sheriff,
at the Instance of Governor Haskell of
Oklahoma, was the act of a desperado,
which ahould meet with prompt punish
ment. Mr. and Mrs. Hearst were In a sleep
ing compartment In a sleeping car, prepar
ing to retire, when a deputy sheriff knocked
and demanded admittance. Mrs. Hearst re
fused to admit him, whereupon he broke
through the door, brushing past Mrs.
Hearst, who apparently was on the verge
This was a piece of brutal ruffianism,
entirely unwarranted except as a device
to advertise the Insufferable Haskell. It was
aa much an outrage as if the officer had
broken into Mr. Hearst's own house. The
editor had no means of knowing that an
officer was trying to find him, and if he
had known, there was no occasion on his
part to dodge the service. In a statement
concerning the affair, Mr. Hearst says
he offered to donate to Governor Haakell
enough money to prosecute his libel suit
In order that it might be tried speedily.
But Haskell did not avail himself of this
offer, and now It appears that he has
had the trial postponed until after election
Mr. Ileaist says he does not believe the
case will ever come to trial, and Haskell's
actions seive to confirm this view.
But whatever the merits of the contro
versy, between Hearst and Haskell may be,
the lawless and violent act of the N.-braWi
deputy sheriff deserves rebuke. There was
no excuse for It .even If It were lawful,
since Mr. Hearst had given notice that
he would accept service through the iiinil.".
The outrage ia a good Illustration
of the character of Haskell himself, and
serves lo explain why he fails to hull
the rj-t o fdecent iucov
Ledger (Ind ).
On the other hand, we have Mr. Bryan.
As a preacher he Is a success: as a stump
speaker, he has no equal In this country;
as a destructive critic he has no superior.
He is admittedly lacking In executive
experience. So far as constructive ability
la concerned, he has with great frequency
suggested various panaceas for the coun
try's ills, which have always heretofore
been repudiated at the polls. One day It Is
16 to 1; another, abandonment of tho
Philippines; a third, government owner
ship of railroads, and now, limiting the
output of trusts and guaranteeing bank
deposits perfectly impractical and vision
ary schemes, all of them.
The Haakell Incident cast an important
sidelight upon Mr. Bryan's Judgment of
men. Taken at his best, Haskell was evi
dently a soldier of fortune, a Wall streot
promoter and execution-proof. Yet Mr.
Bryan made him chairman of his platform
committee and national chairman. One
shudders to think of the possibilities of tho
men with whom Mr. Bryan might surround
himself, in the administration of the gov
ernment. If one were looking for a man to manage
a large private enterprise, and the two
nominees were seeking the rositlon, no one
would hesitate sn Instant in making the
choice. The doer would be preferred to the
talker; the practical man to the theorist;
the man of experience to the experimenter.
When important Judicial appointments are
to be made, who can best be trusted to
make them, the Judge, or the popular
orator and public lecturer
If Mr. Taft be chosen we shall have the
country in the hands of a sane, experienced,
well-poised man. Should Mr. Bryan be
elected, we shall be In the hands of a man
of good intentions, no doubt, of exceeding
volubility of speech, a manufacturer of
panaceas, and a coiner of phrases. We
think the American people will enter upon
no such haiardous experiment.
BITS OF WASHINGTON LIFE,
Minor Scenes and Incidents Skelechcd
on the Xaot.
The waves of political strife, the sheut
irg and Jostling of marshaled partisans,
apparently do not disturb the serenity of
the social side of life in the White House.
Tlans are being perfected for a series of
functions for the winter season designed
to bring the social side of the Koosevclt
administration to a brilliant close. One
of the chief events in the estimation of
the younger set Is the coming out dance
of Miss Itoosevelt, the president's second
daughter, announced for December 28.
While this will mark her debut Into thn
social life of the younger set, as baa been
announced before, the first state dinner
she attends wllf really mean her formal
debut. This dinner will be the first cabi
net dinner of the season and will be given
shortly before Christmas.
Though the announcement sent out from
the White House describes the entertain
ment as a "small" dance, the number of
Invitations will not fall far short of 1,000.
The dance will be held In the East room of
the White House and, according to present
Intentions, will follow the plan adopted
when Miss Allco Roosevelt came out, that
of dispensing with the cotillion.
Commissioner of Pensions Warner re
ports a remarkablo case of stricken con
science. Some time ago the commissioner
got a letter from a pensioner of the civil
war surrendering his certificate and on
closing two $500 coupon bonds of the United
State and n draft for JI72, thereby making
full restitution to the government of all
money- he had received on account of the
certificate of pension.
Commissioner Warner refused to give
the name of tho soldier and declared he
'had not disclosed it to the treasurer of the
United States, to whom were turn'd over
tho bonds and conscience money. When
the conscience contribution first arrived
the commissioner caused an examination to
be made of thn records In the case. On
the showing the veteran was entitled to
his pension beyond a question. A special
examiner was sent out to make an In
vestigation in thn theory that the soldier
might be mentally Irresponsible.
The conscience-stricken man was found
to be In excellent health Hnd of sound
mind. Thereupon the account with con
science was declared closed and the bonds
and money were converted Into the mlscel
Isnrous receipts of the Treasury depart
ment. Designs have been completed for new
postage stamps of the following denomina
tions: One cent, 2 cents, 3 cents, 4 cents,
6 cents, 6 cents, 8 cents, 10 cents, 15 cents,
50 cents and SI. The t- and 15 denomina
tions now in use will not be reprinted.
It will be somo weeks before all the de
nominations will be put on the market.
The 2-cent stamp will be the first dis
tributed and It Is expected that shipments
to postmasters will begin some time in
November. The new issue has been de
signed with the object of obtaining the
greatest simplicity commensurate Willi ar
tistic results. The profile has been taken
In each Instance instead of a full view,
giving a bas relief effect. All the stamps
are of a similar design, containing a head
In an ellipse, the only decoration being
laurel leaves on either aide of the ellipse
The lettering Is In straight lines, t the
top being "U. 8. Postage" and at the bot
tom the words "Two Cents."
The 1-cent stamp contains the head of
Franklin, while all the others will bear
that of Washington, taken from busts by
Houdon. The most notable differences In
the new Issue will be the minimum of
lettering. The colors are the reds and
blues of the early stamps. Director Ralph
of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing
regards the new stamps as the most ar
tlstio ever Issued by the government.
"The national capital continues to grow
in wealth and population In spite of the
hard times," reports a Washington corres
jpondiwt. "The annual assessment Just
completed, gives the real estate valuation
as S3J5,324,8;U, an Increase of $8.000,0i0 over
the previous year. There are .found to be
65.619 buildings in the District, 1.377 having
been erected in the year reviewed. The
growth of Washington Is of national in
terest. It has long passed the critical
stage of Us existence, when men still
doubled if it would be ever anything more
than a straggling town. Today It has
passed the Ai't.UJO mark, and its aspect Is
n r ben without being obtrusively so. It
Is a great residential city, and though on
a giet trade route between the nurth
and south obstinately, perhaps wisely, re
fuses to become a mart or emporium. An
artificial cupilal It is. precisely like St.

that a location eascntlally commercial Is
not a condition prerequisite lo the develop,
