No Coal Strike.
The lesders of the anthracite coal
miners are to be congratulated In hav
ing refused to precipitate a strike at
this time. They neve voted to con
tinue work, pending negotiations for
a readjustment of terms with the mine
operators to take the place of the
three-year agreement, which expires
on April 1. The decision Is a victory
for the anthracite workers over the
leaders of the United Mine Workers'
essoclstlon, who are dominated by the
forces working In the bituminous
mines, where conditions are radically
different from those prevailing In the
A readjustment of the working
agreement should be possible without
serious difficulty If the miners can ad
vance good reasons for a change. The
mine operators have positively refused
to deal with the miners as members
of the United Mine Workers' associa
tion, but express a willingness to deal
with unions of their own men. This
reduces the difference on that point to
a technicality and the miners are wise
In declaring that the recognition of
their general anion Is not the most Im
portant question Involved In the con
troversy. The remaining questions
relate entirely to wages, hours and
methods of weighing, all of which
should be settled without resort to a
The, proposed appeal by the. miners
to President Taft seems to be prema
ture. The precedent established In
that direction by President Roosevelt
In 1162 was based on conditions which
do not now exist.. The country was
then facing a coal famine and the en
tire country was demanding relief
from the intolerable conditions which
had resulted from a prolonged coal
strike. At the present time the miners
are working under an agreement made
at the Instance of the commission ap
pointed by President Roosevelt. Presi
dent Taft could hardly Interfere ex
cept as a last resort and then only to
appoint another commission to inves
tigate conditions and perhaps act as
an arbitration board.' -
If the mine operators should refuse
to deal with such a board there Is
as yet no public pressure to influence
then to do so as there was In the 1902
strike. The miners and the operators,
the parties directly Interested, should
settle the differences between them
Democrat East and South.
The row In the democratic ranks in
the lower house of congress Is being
accepted In democratic circles as the
beginning of the end of the present
control, of the party, and plans are
already being made for a battle royal
to reorganise the party machinery be
fore the next presidential contest. In
dications point to a realignment of the
democratic factions, with the east and
south united against further domina
tion by the Brysnlstlc.wln of Jhe or
ganisation. This Is being fore
shadowed not only by the-attitude of
th eastern democrats, who have al
ways been hostile, . or at least luke
warm, to Bryan, and by the marked
defection of the democratic leaders of
the south who have heretofore allied
themselves with the Bryan followers
in the west and thus controlled the na
tional machinery ot the party.
It requires no political sage to rea
lise that the democrats can not win
in a national campaign without carry
ing a number of eastern states. Mr.
Bryan has tried three times with sup
port from the south, and west, but has
been unable to deliver the goods, to
make any decent showing In the east.
Mr. Cleveland won twice by a combi
nation of the south and east. Judge
Parker lost, largely because he had a
following In the east -hlch was wholly
objectionable to the rank and' file of
his own party.. Mr. Bryan and the
democrats of the east are facing in
different directions on every public Is
sue and the south is said to be weary
of trying to face both ways.-
The south Is showing pronounced
symptoms of breaking awsy from
Bryanlsm for good and all. The fight
on the tariff bill has aroused the
south to the need of protection for Its
Industries and even.. 'Pennsylvania Is
no 'more lusty in calls for protection
than are some of the southern states.
Georgia, South Carolina, North Caro
lina and Florida have joined in send
ing delegations to Washington to pro
test against reduction of the Dlngley
duties on cotton fabrics. Mississippi
and Louisiana are clamoring for re
tention ot the duty on sugar and rice.
Texas wants the duty on wool and
hides kept and Alabama and Tennes
see want the iron ore Industries pro
tected. Praetlcally every southern
state has broken away from the free
trade theories of the Bryanitea and Is
working for the measure of protection
deemed necessary to encourage and
develop its special industries. The
Charlestowa News and Courier, while
opposed to Bryan, is still true to the
old traditions ot the party on the
tariff and offers this word of warn
ing: The dansar la that tha vociferation of

Former Chancellor Canleld.
Dr. James H. Can field, who has Just
passed away In New York, guided the
destiny of the University of Nebraska
as Its chancellor at one of Its most
critical periods, and guided It success
fully, measured by results. Chancel
lor CanOeld'i Incumbency lifted our
State university from, the rsnk of a
secondary school to thst of a college
of higher education. His work raised
the Institution up to the point where
it no longer needed the props of pre
paratory departments and laid out the
field into which It has since been ex
panded. While in scholarship Dr. Canfteld
may not have ranked with some of our
other chancellors, for energy, persist
ence and practical management he
stood unequaled. His contribution to
the University of Nebraska could best
be characterized as that of an educa
tional organizer and popularlzer, and
it came In just at the time it was ab
solutely needed for the future of the
Institution. Not only those who
studied at the university during his
chancellorship, but also those who
shall study there ever after, will be
the beneficiaries of what be did and
should pay tribute to his memory.
Improving Railroad Earnings.
Detailed reports of the earnings of
the railroads for January and for the
fiscal year to date show a marked In
crease over the business tor the cor
responding period of last year, and
later estimates, covering February
and March, Indicate a degree of im
provement that is admittedly satisfac
tory. The compilations have been
made by the New York Financial Re
ylew from the reports of railroads to
the Interstate Commerce commission.
The figures have the advantage ot
uniformity of method and classifica
tion as the companies are required by
law to make their returns on the same
business and in the same way. As a re
sult, the figures are clearly compar
able and the totals have a significance
impossible to obtain under the old sys
tem of reports. ,
Reports covering about 230,000
miles of railroads, practically all the
big systems being Included, show
gross earnings for January of the
present year to have been $146,197,
828, compared with $188,276,186 for
January, 1908. The earnings were dis
tributed as follows: Freight, $101,
430,863, as against $94,462,128, in
January, 1908: passenger, $32,717,
481, as against $31,945,992; other
transportation revenue, $10,585,728,
against $10,332,130; nontransporta
tlon revenue, $1,463,756, against $1,
555,935. This represents a gross reve
nue of $872.86 per mile of line as
compared with $841.40 for January
of last year.
While the gross earnings for Janu
ary, 1909 were about $8,000,000 bet
ter than a year ago, there was but
slight change In the operating expen
ses of the roads, these amounting to
$105,705,697 for January last, as
against $105,288,919 for January, a
year ago. The Increase was almost
entirely In the Items of maintenance
of way and maintenance of equipment.
The total net earnings for January,
1909, were $40,382 232, compared
with $33,141,601 for January, 1908.
The figures furnish convincing
proof of the steady return to normal
business conditions. While the rail
roads suffered hesvlly in the early
months of the psnlo, which began in
the fall of 1907, they are now sharing
fully In the' general improvement.
The movement for the 'merger of St.
Paul and Minneapolis under one mu
nicipal government has reached the
stage In which a commission has been
created by leglslstlve enactment to
draw up a plan of consolidation of the
Twin cities. If St. Paul and Minne
apolis should be made one the com
bined city will immediately take rank
among the top-notchers with a popula
tion of approximately 600,000, and
with corresponding business and social
prestige. While It may take some
time yet before this municipal merger
Is perfected, it is certain to eventuate
in the comparatively near future.
The progress rusde toward the union
of St. Paul and Minneapolis holds up
another object lesson for Omaha and
South Omaha. Omaha and South
Omaha are closer together geograph
ically and have more Interests in com
mon then St. Paul and Minneapolis.
They are, and for some time have-been
in fart, one community, although with
two separate city governments. The
inevitable merger of Omaha and South

ance of the bill prepared by the ways and
means committee. Tha cold fact la that
most of the democratic members of conse

wondering what they would be able to

Is not planning to take advantage of the

minority protested against the enormous

One explanation of the situation Is that
the democrats In public life, having de-
apaired of their own party ever Coming
back to power nationally, are disposed to
hold out their hands, for such "loaves and
fishes' aa the party In power may hand
out to them. Take, for example, the recent

like people. They have to be dead before
they are fully known.
Lyons 8un: President Taft'a cabinet
ddesn't suit our democratic country news
paper brethren. He couldn't have named
one that would, but Bryan could have
satisfied them with Flngy Connors. Roger
Sijlllvan, Governor Haskell and Jim Pahl
Blue bpilnga Sentinel: Bryan ?aya thla
haa been the best aesslon of the stale legis
lature tha Mate haa ever had. The editor
knows a lot of prominent democrats over
the state, however, who think otherwise;
In fact, one expressed himself to us the
other day that "it waa the durndest bunch
ever got together."
Crete Vldetle-Herald: Edgar Howard Is
never Idle. , He devotea much of his time
In elevating Into office men of the Ransom,
Howell. I.atta brand, and occupies the bal
ance of hia time In presenting arguments,
unrefutable, why these same men ahould
not have been aelected to misrepresent the
common people. Yea. he Is a busybody.
Beatrice 8un: We must admit, however
reluctantly, that the legislature Is spending
a considerable share of Ita time In Juggling
the laws so that the governor will have
power to appoint officera that have here
tofore been appointed by boards and com
missions made up of atata officera. The
coincident fact that the executive and the
legislature are of the same political faith
may have something to do with" the
changes that are being made.
Syracuee Journal: If there Is a demo
crat In this section who is not disgusted
with the present legislature he haa not
reported at thla office, but the wooda are
full of them who have ao expressed them
selves. And aome of the best men In the
party. In thla locality have stated that they
have .voted their last democratic ticket.
The state Is over 40 years old and I his is
the first democratic legislature. It ought
to be a thousand years before we have
another If thla Is the best they can do.
Slielton Clipper: As an Instance of
democratlo 'economy Is cited the action of
the legislature the other day In voting an
allowance of $1,200 to Chief Clerk Cone for
making up the Journal. Two years ago Mr.
Cone was a member of the house himself
snd when the republican legislature voted
the same amount for the purpose that has
now been voted him he protested against
It on the ground that It was extravagant
and excessive and that the work was not
worth near that much. In fact, he offered
to dp the work for $250 or'$300. But when
he got to be chief clerk of the legislature
himself he wanted all that, he could get
for the work, and he got Just as much as
the republican clerk got. The incident
Illustrates that when a democrat gets up
to tha pie counter he la Juat as greedy as
any republican ever dared to be and he
doesn't care any more for the interests of
the dear people than he rioea about a war
Illg Money for the Census.
Boston Transci ipt. ,
If the coming census cots the fourteen
million dollars for which Director X'liij
will ultimately ask. it will he not far from
18 centa per capita for the population of
the continental t'nlted Slates. As M,
North has himself before pointed out. the
history of census taking shows n slradl'y
riking per capita cost, largt-lv hecnuss
there are so many more things that thi
modern world wants to know.
