President Taft may have some diffi
culty In securing the desired modifica
tions In the pending tariff bill, but for
all that there Is every reason to be
lieve he will succeed In what he has
undertaken, because the people are
unquestionably bphlnd him In his ef
fort Those who believe he can be
driven from bis position evidently do
not know the man or appreciate his
record. Mr. Taft has never been given
to bluster, but he Is both persistent
and diplomatic In accomplishing what
ever he undertakes. He made his po
sition clear in his statement that he
voiced the demands of the entire coun
try, instead of a district or state, with
its local Industries, and that he wanted
a bill that was for the best Interests
of all, rather than for those of a sec
tion. It Is this sectionalism which pre
sents the greatest obstacles to reach
ing an agreement in the conference
committee. Certain senators and con
gressmen, who are with the president
In his stand for a general revision of
the tariff downward, still contend for
local industries, and thus complicate
the situation, but there Is no reason
why a majority should not finally get
together on a bill which will meet the
president's approval and prove accept
able to the country.
With all the noise that is being
made, there are really only a few
schedules on which the president and
the conferees are reported to differ
seriously, and, even if rumors are true,
these differences are not irreconcil
able. It Is not to be expected that
senators and congressmen will yield
to the president without protest on
Items deemed of importance, to their
constituencies, but when the smoke
has all cleared away it will be seen
that the president has wta Material
concessions, and that, before he signs
it, the bill will fairly meet his ideas
of what the party promised the coun
try. Uncalled For.
On the excuse 'of providing against
a falling off of revenue from liquor
licenses for next year as a consequence
of the 8 o'clock closing law the school
board has increased its requisition for
a school levy by 2 mills.
Whether the board is Justified in
figuring on a decrease of license money
to the extent it has Is open to ques
tion. It is a fact that for years the
actual revenue from this source has
materially exceeded the estimates
made by the board's financiers, but has
never beep, taken into account by them
to give the taxpayers relief.
Outside of this, however, the board
still persists in taking $25,000 a year
out of the taxpayers' pockets for the
construction account, which has al
ready been provided for by the pro
ceeds of bonds voted at successive elec
tions and still unexpended. The
board's estimate includes, besides this
$25,000, another $60,000 toward the
bond redemption fund, making an an
nual tax of $85,000 for building pur
poses in addition to the bonds that
have been voted. It seems to us that
If the taxpayers put up their share of
the bond redemption fund from year
to year there is no good reason why
they should be loaded down further
with a construction charge of $25,000
The school board's estimate! have
been generally padded and a disposi
tion to reduce the tax burden would
easily accomplish the result, or at
least hold the school levy down to
what It was last year. ' '
Punishing' House Inaurg-ents.
Washington advices are that the so-
called house insurgents will not fare
well in committee places when Speaker
Cannon makes his announcement on
the closing day of the special session.
The insurgents would undoubtedly be
surprised if the reverse should happen.
They made the fight to curtail the
speaker's power and lost, and- could
not expect to b specially favored In
committee distributions. Should they
be, they would be open to a suspicion
of having' recanted and made their
peace with the speaker, and in the end
weaken their Influence in the house.
With the showing made, they are far
more Ukely to continue the fight
Among those said to be under the
speaker's ban are Norrla of Nebraska,
Murdock of Kansas and Davis of Min
nesota, and, as they all had good com
mittee places in the last congress,
there is some speculation where they
will be placed. Speaker Cannon has
been silent on the question, and nei
ther the three men nor their friends
have been able to get an inkling what
is In store for them, and It is Jokingly
predicted that they may be placed
on the committee on acoustics. What
ever Speaker Cannon does, there is
every Indication that both sides to the
controversy Intend to stand their
Defends It Wheat Estimate.
The Department of Agriculture
comes back with a defense of its
March estimate of wheat in farmers'
hands, which was assailed by bull
leaders In the wheat pit during the
May deal. So far as It relates to the
May deal, of course, the showing is
immaterial, except as bearing upon the
reliability of the department's esti
mates. The service costs the govern
ment a considerable sum, and if it
were unreliable It would be more thaa
money wasted, for misleading infor
mation is worse than none.
Taking public elevator and grain
exchange records of stock In sight
July 1 In public elevators and milling
centers, together with consumption
during the four intervening months
as a basis, the department makes out
a strong case in support of its early
figures on grain in farmers' hands,
Indicating the amount was over, rather
than under, the department's estimate.
The department certainly has greater
facilities for ascertaining the facts
than any single dealer or group of
dealers can have, and the discrepancy
between the figures of the government
officials and those of the grain brok
ers was so great that it could not be
accounted for by any ordinary error
The official figures are the only safe
guard the public has against manipu
lative stories, and the showing made
In this case will tend to give them
greater credence In the future under
Campaign Funds in Colorado.
Colorado has a new law regulating
campaign expenses and method of
raising the money, which is exploited
by Governor Shafroth In The Inde
pendent He recommends it as a
means of purifying elections by shut
ting out corporation contributions and
decreasing the amount of available
campaign funds. The plan in brief Is
to pay out of the state treasury 25
cents for each voter, and add to this
40 per cent of the first year's salary
of each office, as an assessment of the
candidate. The state's contribution
under this plan will be $65,250, di
vided between the parties in propor
tion to the vote cast by each, half
going to the state campaign mana
gers and half to the county commit
tees. This would give each party in
Colorado a state campaign fund of
about $32,000, to which should be
added the assessments of candidates.
Some idea of how far the law would
operate to purify elections may be
judged by Nebraska experience. In
other than presidential years the total
campaign funds available to the state
committees of the two parties In Ne
braska do not exceed $10,000 each,
or less than one-third the state's con
tribution to each party in Colorado.
As Nebraska, without woman suffrage,
polled over 6,000 more rotes than
Colorado, with woman suffrage, in
1908, campaigning in Colorado must
be expensive, If the amount set aside
Is considered moderate and assuring
freedom from corrupt elections.
The Colorado law will provide pov
erty-stricken parties with a campaign
fund and enable a party with no show
of election to carry on a campaign to
keep intact party organization, but as
to preventing corruption in elections it
looks more like an aid than a brake.
The decision of Judge Troup sus
pending the provision of the law re
quiring warrants against the county
treasurer to be held ten days to per
mit of protest by taxpayers, Insofar as
it applies against warrants drawn in
favor of the new court house contrac
tor, does not look good to us. The
ten-day limit for delivery of warrants
was plainly intended to safeguard the
taxpayers against treasury raids, with
or without the connivance of their
public officials. It is a good rule,
which has been enforced for many
years, and no reason has been pre
sented why it should be abolished or
exceptions made to It.
Judge Troup seems to think that the
county board can, by contract, suspend
this part of the law by simply inserting
the proper proviso in the agreement.
Of course, everyone who contracts
with, the county does so subject to trie
law, and presumably knowing that he
will have to wait ten days for his
money after any claim is allowed. It
Judge Troup's ruling stands it will de
volve additional responsibility upon
the architect, who alone will be in
position to check up the .estimates of
the contractor in the- interest of the
taxpayers. The ruling of Judge Troup
does not appeal to us as either good
business or the intent of the law.
If either tho . electric lighting
company or the street railway com
pany, both of which have been using
the streets of Omaha for the distribu
tion and sale of electric power, have
no franchises for that purpose they
will have to come to the people asking
for such franchises if they want to
continue in the power supply business.
The decision Of Judge Munger denying
the claim of tho electric light com
pany to a power franchise Is subject to
an appeal and will doubtless be car
ried to the court of last resort The
right of the electrlo light company
to use the streets for this purpose was
originally challenged by the late city
engineer and. the right of the street
railway company to sell power to pri
vate users Is scarcely defended by the
street railway people themselves.
If the city still has these valuable
franchises unissued It should be of tre
mendous importance to our taxpayers
and the city authorities should take
every necessary step to maintain those
rights. If later we should come to the
granting of new franchises it will re
solve itself Into a question of making
satisfactory terms to secure ratifica
tion by popular vote. In the mean
time if the city has anything further
coming to It for unauthorised use of
Its streets without a franchise It
should not waive any of Its legal pre
rogatives. An unconfirmed rumor Is afloat that

In view of the campus plan for the
medical department of the State uni

It Is too late to make the latter con
form to any systematic and artistic de
sign. The only suggestion one can
offer Is to recall the old adage, "It's

A Vindication for Shaw.
Leslie M. Shaw has been vindicated. As
secretary of the treasury he never be
lieved In paying any part of the expenses

enues. He thought there should be a bond
issue representing Its total cost as an
element of popular education in order that
the great enterprise might be marked suit

Ban Francisco Chronicle. '
The most reasonable hope of the advent
or universal peace ilea in the terror In
spired by modern engines of war. In
ventors of extraordinary destructive guns
have declared and believed that they ad
vanced the cause of peace by every Im
provement of the machinery for slaughter,
but as heralds of peace the Inventors of
maohlns guns and 112.000.000 battleships are
distanced by the inventors of airships,
smokeless powder, noiseless artillery and
"wireless torpedoes." There is probably
no danger which human courage will not
face if it can be seen and openly opposed.
But no huruuan nerves can bear up under
a rain of murderous shells unheralded by
smoke or sound, and much less the terror
which falls not day or night of explosives
falling from the sky above or torpedoes
driven at the ship by an unseen power
safely established out of reach of the
ship's guns. Smokeless powder is now
adopted for all military perpoees. That
soundless, guns are possible aoeais to have

about workable airships, and, startling as
the proposition sounds, one would be fool
ish to assume that the radius of action of
torpedoes cannot be enormously extended
by wireless electricity. When to the ter
