The republican party Is In posi
tion to carry out one of its pledges to
the people at the coming short session
of congress by enacting the postal sav
ings bank law, which has already been
used by the senate and Is now pend
ing In the house as unfinished business.
The platform of 1808 pledges the party
to prompt legislative action oft this
question and the progress already
made on the measure would appear to
make It unnecessary to coniue dis
cussion of It until the next congress.
The more the proposed plan ia dis
cussed the more arguments and
stronger are adduced In its favor. In
the current Issue of Van Norden's Mag
azine, Postmaster General Meyer
argues that the adoption of the postal
savings bank system would solve the
panic question. He believes that the
uninformed Immigrants who' have Im
plicit confidence In the American gov
ernment, but do not understand the
commercial banking system or have
confidence in It, would be glad to trust
their money to the government Instead
of sending It abroad. Tie says that last
ear more than $72,000,000 were sent
abroad in money orders. On that point
Oenerat Meyer says:
t learn that 48,756 postal orders 'were
drawn by Italians alone. These orders
averaged 341.29. and the total was more than
118.000, 000. We know that this vast sum
was not sent home to be spent. . The bulk
of It was added to the deposits of the banks
In Italy. Our financial Institutions lost the
use of It. Italy rained It.
The postmaster general believes that
this amount of money, with other mil
lions hoarded in different ways, would
be placed In the savings banks of the
Fostofflce department, and thus find Its
way into circulation and perform its
function In the spread of trade. It is
believed by those who have made a
study of the system that it would be an
aid to the bankers instead of a detri
ment, as many bankers seem to think.
The saving of money is largely a habit,
and the more the small depositor ac
cumulates the more be desires to see
his account grow. The small Interest
rate to be paid by the government
would not attract the deposits of those
who understand the banking business
and hhve confidence in the banks, but
would swell the volume of money
n general circulation by drawing uponfl
a supply which la now either hoarded
or sent to foreign countries which have
the postal savings syttem.
The defeat of .Mayor. Top Johnson
of Cleveland in the referendum upon
the franchise of the Municipal Traction
company apparently blocks the trial of
the modified scheme of municipal
operation and opens another chapter In
a curious fight for control of the city's
street railway system. The voto was
close and the result can hardly be ac
cepted as a test of the merit or failure
of the municipal owhership question,' as
many financial and political complica
tions have become Involved in the deal.
Johnson opened his campaign some
years ago by organizing n street rail
way company under S3, agreement to
grant a 3-cent fare. Later the two
companies were consolidated, tho new
company taking them over under an
agreement, on a ninety-nine-year lease,
to maintain the 8-oent fare. By terms
of the consolidation the new companj
was bound to pay 6 per cent on the
stock of the old companies. To meet
this the service was crippled. The em
ployes struck and the securities of the
companies were driven away below par.
An attempt to recoup the losses by
making a charge of 1 cent for transfers
aroused public indignation and forced
referendum vote on the franchise.
The now company lost out on the vote
and the traction affairs are still in a
chaotic condition. ,
The incident simply serves to show
the fallacy of trying to enforce a theo
retical condition when business will not
warrant it. Johnson's plan did not,
perhaps, have a fair trial, but its fail
ure demonstrates' the difficulty In man
aging a complicated transportation
problem by a popular vote.
The presence in Lincoln at this
time of the State Teachers' association
directs attention to the schools of the
state. It has long been Nebraska's
pride that its educational Institutions
are among the most efficient In the
country,, and It Is a matter for further
pride and congratulation that In all
the material prosperity that has corns
to the state in recent years the schools
have shared. The development of the
Intellectual side of life has a direct
Influence on the citixenship and this
keeps Nebraska at the very pinnacle
In the United States, and as the United
States lead the world, it Is not an idle
boast for Nebraska to say that she
utands at the very front In all that
goes to make for right living.
The remarks of Chancellor Andrews
at the banquet at Lincoln on Thurs
day night are peculiarly appropriate
to Nebraska. In referring to the In
fluence of education on the social life
of the people, he laid special stress on
the necessity for the Intellectual de
velopment of the world population.
Among other things, he said:
AS Intelligent rural population la neces
tary to the finest character and Integrity
if th whole people, for the richest de
velopment of common sens, sincerity, large
view and patriotism These qualities seem
to spring from the land. They are found

strongest Instance of them are not Indi

Wh'.e the republicans will have an
effective working majority In the
house of the new congress that will
meet early after March 4, 1909, for
special consideration of tariff revision,
there will be a number of new faces
In the body to succeed members who
have been prominent In Washington
o'llclal life for a number of years.
These changes will cause a radical re
adjustment of the chairmanships of
important committees snd, will work
(or a readjustment of congressional af
fairs throughout.
One of the veterans to fall by the
wayside was William Peters Hepburn
of Iowa, one' of the veterans of the
bouse and for many years chairman
of the important committee on Inter
state and foreign commerce. Mr. Hep
burn's defeat is due to two causes. He
was a persistent standpatter, while the
republican sentiment of his state was
pronounced In favor of tariff revision.
Then, he had grown indifferent to his
local constituents and for a number of
years hnd refused to take any active
part in the cuiiipaizn. As a result, a
nexv generation of voters who were not
actiim'nted r.Hn him and resented his
Indifference voted for his retirement.
Jesse Overstreet of Indiana was ap
parently defeated bec.i'iuse of factional
fights In his party and the state oppo
sition to former Congressman Watson,
who was the republican nominee for
governor. Overstreet'a defeat will
leave a vacancy in the chairmanship of
the important committee on postofflces
and post roads, one of the biggest and
hardeBt working committees in the
house. Charles B. Landis of Indiana
was lost in the same tide that over-
whelmed Overstreet. He is chairman
of the house committee on printing and
one of the most popular men in con
gress. Minnesota furnishes another illus
tration of the fate that- overtakes re
publicans who oppose tariff revision.
James T. McCleary, who represented
the Mankato district in congress for
a number of years, was defeated two
years ago for his stubborn opposition
to tariff revision. He was appointed
second assistant postmaster general,
which position he recently resigned to
seek a vindication and re-election in
his old district m.l was emphatically
defeated. J. Adam Bede, representing
the Duluth district, also fell by the
wayside In the primaries, his successor
being a republican pledged to tariff re
vision, to which policy Mr. Bede re
fused to pledge himself.
General J. Warren Keifer of Ohio
was defeated, although not unexpect
edly, as he was elected to the Klfty
ninth and Sixtieth congresses by small
majorities In a close district. He was
something of a figure in the house, as
he had represented his district for sev
eral terms after the civil war and was
speaker of the house for one term.
On the democratic side, John Sharp
Wiliama, Bourke Cock ran and John
Wesley Gaines will be among the nota
ble missing. Mr. Williams retires to
become senator from Mississippi. Mr.
Gaines, the noisiest man in the body,
was defeated at the primaries and
Cockran was ordered out by Tammany.
Mr, Williams' retirement will probably
mean the election of Champ Clark of
Missouri to the minority leadership. .
South Dakota voters did not take
kindly to the proposed new laws which
were Intended to regulate divorce, the
liquor traffic and Sunday amusements,
and turned them all down at the polls.
South Dakota seems to have been In
touch with Nebraska on some points,
at least.

Whatever secret design Kaiser AVIlhelm
had In view when he tacitly consented to
the publication of his profession ot friend

outburst were alike Inopportune. Coming at
a moment when England and Its allies

Rrltlsh radicals Jeer at the professions of

pride In Its tenderest spot is the assertion
ot the kaiser that he forwarded to his
royal grandmother military plans ot cam

Lord Roberts. The mere suggestion of
"Little Bob's" drawing inspiration from
German Sources roused British wrath to

Up to October 18 the number of claims

England, 131,610 from Ireland, 49,077 frbm
Scotland and 13.U15 from Wale. These
figures are luminous of the relative condi

Prime Minister Asqulth, having promised

China's special commissioner to the

article entitled, "China and America," de
clares that the special commissioner is
charged with a far more Important mission
than that Indicated in his instructions as
to Boxer indemnity, and adds: "Publlo
