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. . TOM -JOHMSOirS FAILURE. 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. NEBRASKA TEACHERS. 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 n cities mostly because brought there. Th strongest Instance of them are not Indi genous to towns. Town life would soon grow sickly alike ta moral and physical regards but for th Inoessant importation f blood and character from the land. It s a matter of common knowledge that nearly all th men and women of com- Handing position in society, business. politic, literature and life were bom and .-eared In th country. By reason of his position at the end of the great state university, ?hancellor Andrews Is the natural eader of the teaching forces of Ne , raaka and he should feel proud of the magnificent army that follows him In the work of spreading information and enlightenment among the people who are so eager to be served In this wsy. The teachers of Nebraska are a splendid body and richly deserve the credit so freely given them by the cititens. .!Vgir FACES IX CONGRESS. 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. The governor of Kentucky says he will borrow $1,000,000, It necessary, to suppress night riding in that state, li he will borrow a little of the nerve shown by Governor Patterson of Ten netsee in suppressing night riding he will not need so much money. Governor-elect Shallenberger is be ginning to realize already that suc cess brings its trials.' The hungry horde of democratic statesmen so far outnumber th offices at his disposal that he will certainly have to disap point some one. Governor Sheldon's last Important duty will be to name new members of the supreme court of the state, and the people may depend upon it that he will discbarge this duty with the same fidelity that has marked his course in office. Th& Washington Herald Is still pro testing against skating on the streets of the capital. As the Herald grows older It will become accustomed to seeing men on skates in Washington Mr. Bryan declared that the mills and factories were starting up in Oc tober for "a transparent political trick." Funny that none of them are now closing down. "Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., is saying nothing and sawing wood," says an exchange. Nothing of the kind. The young man is saying nothing and soft- og wool. The resumption of work In the coal field, the steel mills and other great Industrial centers is coming In time td make the winter an easy one for the workers. Msyor "Jim" says Shallenberger ran on a platform opposed to county option. This means that he only se p ted the populist nomination and not the platform of that party an other evidence of the beauties of fu sion. Jim Hill probably feels a little bet ter now. At any rate the stockholders In the Northern Pacific are getting an extra dividend that must look mighty good. A Welcome Era, New York Time. The election of William H.

Boston Herald. Populist Tom Watson of Georgia seems to re entitled to the most profound condo lences of any of the late presidential candi dates. Receiving no votes to speak of Is gentle treatment compared with the social ostracism which he says he has undergone me nands of his fellow cltlsens down Georgia, who have even refused tn recognise him, returning his salutations wun a stony stare. They still take their politics very seriously down in Dixie. Triumph of Good Cltlaenshlp. Chicago Tribune. If Governor Hughes had "fallen Outside the breastworks," as Warner Miller did In 188. th rejoicing over the election of Mr. Taft would have been tempered by the sense of a rreat loss. The governor has become a national character, not as the governor of a gTeat state, but because he ha been waging in New York that battle against special privilege and corruot 'vested Interests" which mut be fought In every state In the union. He is the honest and uncompromising lawyer In politics so much needed and ao seldom found. POLIT1CAX, DRIFT. Poor Prophet Mack! They out him off at Buffalo.

"Flngy" Connors, the great democratic warrior and prophet of New York, ob served after coming out of it, "We got licked, and licked good. I don't think anyon will deny that. I am willing to admit now that I am a pretty bad prophet." The New York World chortles In a mel ancholy ton and reprints It solemn prophecy of June 1. 1908: "One vital, dom inating fact confronts the democratic party which no oratory, which no eloquence, which no rhetoric can obscure: Bryan's nomination means Taft's election." Among th countless left, big and little. a few will be found live enough to ap preciate the pathos of the lover who hav ing Deen nrea over tne renoe by the old man, calmly inquired by mall: "Dear Bir Am I to understand by your action of last night that you wish to discourage my attentions to your daughter?" A SURGICAL RATION lf there is any one thing that a woman dreads more than another it Is a surgical operation.

Mrs. Barbara Base, of Kingman, Kansas, writes to Mrs. Pinkham: M For eight year I suffered from the most severe form of female troubles and was told that an operation was my only, hope of recovery. I wrote Mrs. Pinkham for advice, and took Lydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and It has saved my life and made me a well woman." Mrs Arthur It House, of Church Road, Moorestown. N. J, writes : "I feel it is my duty to let people know what Lydia . Pinkham's Vege table Compound has done for me. I suffered from female trouble, and last March my physician decided that an operation was necessary. My husband objected, and urged me to try Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound, and to-day I am well and strong." FACTS FOR SICK WOMEN.

Whatever secret design Kaiser AVIlhelm had In view when he tacitly consented to the publication of his profession ot friend ship for England, It Is evident he did not expect to increase the flow of national good 111. Th time and the character ot the outburst were alike Inopportune. Coming at a moment when England and Its allies Russia, France and Italy are co-operating for a settlement of the Balkan difficulty upon lines calculated to antagonise Ger man and Austrian designs, the rasping sen timents of friend-spurned widened the breach and produced an amaslhg discord In the concert ot the power. German sen timent is outraged by the revelations of the deliberate snub of the llorr envoys, and Rrltlsh radicals Jeer at the professions of friendship, admittedly limited to German official circles. What strikes British pride In Its tenderest spot is the assertion ot the kaiser that he forwarded to his royal grandmother military plans ot cam paign on line subsequently adopted by Lord Roberts. The mere suggestion of "Little Bob's" drawing inspiration from German Sources roused British wrath to such a pitch that ministerial denials were necessary to quiet the storm. British in dignation I mild compared with the In dignation of the German people. Chancel lor von Buelow Is th object of attack for the moment and his readiness to shoulder responsibility for permitting the Interview to become public, diverts criticism from the emperor. Popular wrath must have a victim, and as the emperor ha a lit Job, von Buelow may bo forced to retire from office. Apart from the official and Inter national character of the Interview, one feature, admirable as It Is rare, shines above all others the emperor did not de nounce the reporter nor deny the allega tion. Judging from present Indications, the au tumn session ot the Russian Parliament will be more harmonious than any pre vious session since the Institution of the law-making body. A number of reform measure Introduced at the last session will be brought forward for early consid eration. Two meaaures dealing with phases of. the agrarian problem. It Is expected, will be taken up Immediately. One oi these land bills will, In case of Us final en- aotment, make possible the dissolution ot the communal system of land tenure and provide for a redistribution ot communal land on a private ownership basis. An other measure affecting the interest oi th rural peasantry la designed to bring about reform of the courts In the country districts. These, with the budget bills and tax problems, constitute the larger ques tions to be considered and disposed of. Up to October 18 the number of claims submitted under the British old age pension aot was 4tti,164. Of these 273,8bJ cam from England, 131,610 from Ireland, 49,077 frbm Scotland and 13.U15 from Wale. These figures are luminous of the relative condi tions ot the components of the United Kingdom. They show that up to the date mentioned to about 1 per cent ot th popu lation of England and Wales the grant of 165 per annum wa an object, which was 4he proportion in Scotland also. The pro portion In Ireland rises to 8 per cent ot the population, a percentage due to the larget proportion of old people on th Island. The forcible annexation of Bosnia to Austria has already awakened among the annexed peopie great contempt for Austria's benevolent intentions. A correspondent of the Frankfurter Zeltung reports the native arming against their benefactor. So eager Is the Austrian department of benevolent slmllatlon to glv the Bosnian the best possible government, that it ha appointed only well educated Austrian to manage the country's affairs. At this the bar barian have uttered loud growls and mut tered something about home rule. As If there were a bag-trousered brigand among the 1,790,000 who could be trusted to sell postage stamps! Th abolition of silly na tional holidays, the Increase In taxes, and other great moral uplifts are also received coldly. Th Bosnians are helpless ingrates. Prime Minister Asqulth, having promised that Welsh disestablishment would be made a government measure at the present ses sion of Parliament If time permitted, the federated non-Anglican churches of WVile have issued a manifesto, which calls for agitation that will give the majority relief from a relation to state aided religion, to which they repudiate aa a matter of con science. This Is an old Issue, at least forty years old. The Welsh Protestants claim that having aided Jew and Roman Catho lic, and non-Anglican Protestant Irish to secure freedom, It is now their turn to be aided. If turn about I fair play, it Is. China's special commissioner to the United States, Tang-Shao-TI, bearing to Unci Sam the emperor's gratitude for the voluntary return to China of the surplus of the Boxer indemnity, has sailed tor Ban Francisco. The China Mail, in an 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 opinion In the middle kingdom la strongly in favor of the establishment of the most friendly relations with the United States. The native press teems with articles and paragraph for th most part advocating an alliance. It would be departing from American custom and precedent to enter upon such a pact; the United State be lieves in being friendly with all nations, but still clings firmly to Washington's ad vice not to enter upon any entangling al liance." M Reform have a rocky road (. travel in China, a well as elsewhere. No sooner doe th opium habit get its deathblow than the menace of the cigarette looms up a a national danger. Introduced Into China only a few years ago, the value of cigarette imports Is second only to that of kerosene, and the habit Is rapidly spreading among men, women and children Even th walls of the saored temples are blasoned by the flaming advertisements of the various competing cigarette brands. It needs only the introduction ot the merry widow hat, the sheath gown and rapid- fire divorce law to complete the awaken ing of China to the beauties of Occidental civilisation. BEFOHK AND AFTER.
