Tht Extr S""011 pltnk
Among other things projected
platform planks by the convention
purporting to apeak for Nebraska dem
ocrats at Lincoln last week la the fol
lowing with reference to the proposed
amendment to the federal constitution
giving congress power to levy an in
come tax without apportionment by
population :
We pledge the democratic party In Ne
braska to assist in securing ratification of
that amendment and to that end we ask
Governor Shallenberger to call a special
session of the legislature at an early day
that Nebraska, a pioneer In the advocacy
of an income tax. may have the honor of
being the first atate to ratify the amend
ment. For the privilege of having Ne
braska recorded as the first state to
ratify a constitutional amendment our
democratic friends would have Gov-
ernor Shallenberger convene the legis
lature In extra session. The cost of
such a program seems to cut no more
figure with them than Its palpable In
effectiveness. So far as ratifying the
amendment Is concerned, of hastening
Its Incorporation into the federal con
stitution, it will make absolutely no
difference whether Nebraska Is the
first to take actioD or the 1hlrty-flfth,
because the amendment will not be op
erative until ratified by three-fourths
of all the forty-six states In the union.
Just what a special session of the
legislature would cost may only be
estimated, and would depend upon Its
duration. There are 133 members of
the house and senate who draw $5 a
day when the legislature Is in session,
and, with the secretaries, clerks, door
keepers and other necessary attend
ants, the salary roll may be placed at
1.000 a day. A ten days' session
would cost $10,000 in salaries alone,
and to this would have to be added
the mileage allowance, cost of supplies
and other incidentals. So that If an
extra session could do the Job within
ten days the taxpayers of Nebraska
would be called upon to pay from
$15,000 to $20,000 for the empty priv
ilege of having the honor to be tbe
first state to ratify a constitutional
But if Governor Shallenberger
obeyed the instructions of the demo
cratic platform makers and Issued his
call for an extra session of the legisla
ture forthwith, Nebraska still could
not have this honor. At leaat two leg
islature are in session right this min
ute, those of Alabama and Georgia.
In Alabama the ratifying resolution has
been Introduced and referred to the
proper legislative committee, and - as
there is no opposition it will be adopted
at the first opportunity, and the assent
of Alabama will be complete this week,
making It the first state on the alpha
betical list of states and the first on
tbe list of ratifications. While we
have no exact Information as to what
the legislature of Georgia is doing on
the subject, It Is safe to say that
Georgia will follow suit with little loss
of time and will be the second state to
ratify tbe amendment! So the very
best that Nebraska could possibly do
with an extra session of tbe legisla
ture costing from $15,000 to $20,000
would be to get In third or fourth on
tbe list of ratifying states.
If Governor Shallenberger has noth
ing else for the legislature to do but to
tickle the vanity of some eminent
statesman who has been a pioneer in
advocating tbe income tax he will
think twice before convening an extra
session of the legislature.
New Departure in Insurance.
Several life insurance companies
have announced plans for furthering
public health and incidentally extend
ing tbe age expectancy of its policy
holders. The movement ts subsidiary
to and inspired by public and private
enterprises. The object la laudable
from tbe viewpoint of humanity and
possibly profitable from the insurance
standpoint. There is reason, however,
to doubt whether it comes within the
province of Insurance companies and
Is likely to be challenged It it In
volves the expenditure of any consid
erable sum. Life Insurance companies
are trusteeships and every expendi
ture of these trust funds must be
clearly for the benefit of the existing
policyholders, and courts have held
that such benefit must be direct and
clearly shown. Statutes and court de
cisions have left little discretion to
Insurance company officials in han
dling company funds, the fields of
Investment even being limited, and If
the theory of trusteeship as previously
construed Is strictly adhered to the
companies cannot go very far with the
proposed plan, although in the mean
time a number of them are getting
much .good advertising at little ex
pense. Spanish Republic Proclaimed.
The proclamation at Barcelona of
a Spanish republic appears to be noth
ing more than an effort to find a
rallying point for the dlacontented
elementa. Tbe previous experiment
with a Spanish republic, though It
had the advantage of the leadership
of the greatest Spanish statesman of
recent times, Emello Castellar, was
a failure because of tbe Inherent In
capacity of the masses to sustain pop
ular government. Even a representa
tlve monarchy seams to be too ad
vanced for a large portion of Spanish
people. Viewed In the light of the
past, there appears to be little hope
for a republic no matter what may
be the fate of the present dynasty.
The difficulties that beset the gov
ernment in Spain are many, even in
times of profound peace. Tbe massea
are Ignorant, tbe percentage of illiter
acy being tbe highest In Europe. ' The
people aa a whole -are desperately
poor, their main Industry being agri
culture In a land not particularly fer
tile and farmed in a primitive way as
ompared with the more advanced ua-
tions of Europe and the t'nlted States.
On top of all this la a national debt
of over $2,000,000,000, accumulated
almost entirely as the result of for
eign wars. It Is the oppression of
this debt and Its cause which Incites
opposition to the war In Morocco,
which Is being waged to hold a value
less strip of territory wrested from
the Moors in 1496.
If a Spanish republic could lighten
the people's burdens, it would have
some claim to the aympathy of other
nations, but It holds out no such hope.
Enlightened statesmanship may In
time raise Spain from the slough of
despond, but the leader who can and
will has yet to appear.
Featurei of the New Tariff.
Some features of the new tariff bill
are commonly overlooked and others
entirely misunderstood. Among the
common misapprehensions is that the
wool and woolen goods duties were
raised above the Dlngley rates, which
Is not the case, the only change be
ing to lower the duty on tops to give
proper proportion to other parts of
the wool schedule. The cotton goods
rates are perhaps the least under
stood when quoted as Increases over
the Dlngley rate. The new cotton
goods rates are identical with those
supposed to have been Imposed by
the Dlngley bill and which were, In
fact, collected under it for four years
after its passage, until the courts de
cided that the law did not say what
It was Intended it should.
Another salient feature, and the
one which dominates the purpose of
tbe bill is that where Increases have
been necessary to produce revenue
needed by the government they have
been made almost exclusively on lux
uries. Census bureau figures show
that the total yearly consumption of
goods on which increases have been
made Is $852,512,525, of which
amount $579,850,322 are of luxuries,
the largest single Hera being wines
and liquors, and the next largest silks.
On the other hand reductions were
made on articles of which the United
States consume yearly $4,978,122,124
On one of the most vital items
lumber there has been a reduction
all along the line with the exception
of shingles, and this last concession to
the producer Is explained because the
standing cedar timber is practically
exhausted, and In the shingles made
from stumpage domestic mills could
not compete with Canadians sawing
from the full trunk.
With one exception, the entire Iron
and steel schedule has been cut, and
this exception is for the salvation of
the small independent manufacturer
and Industries scattered all over the
country. On steel beams and all
kinds of ironwork except structural
steel punched and fabricated for use,
the duty Is lowered. The big steel
mills are cut on their product while
the hundreds of local workshops all
over the country which finish the
product for tbe builder get the only
Whether the bill Is revision up
ward or downward It turns some
what on its revenue-producing quali
ties. It la estimated that tbe new
tariff will produce $40,000,000 more
revenue than the present Dlngley law.
Of this the corporation tax is de
pended on to raise $26,000,000, the
Increased internal revenue on tobacco
$9,500,000, and customs $4,000,000
additional. To produce this Increase
In customs revenues, the Increased
duties on luxuries must be several
times $4,000,000 to offset the reduc
tions upon necessities and raw ma
terials. The Czar'i Tour of Europe.
The police are familiar with the
troubles of the Russian czar, and
probably before he returns home the
rulers of the leading nations of Eu
rope will have the details at first
hands. White its troubles are com
mon knowledge, yet In spite of re
verses In the Japanese war and strife
at home Russia Is a power to be reck
oned with in European politics, and
the Imperial powers are so great that,
more than any ruler, the guar la able
to commit his country to a policy.
With International politics so tan
gled, the present visit of the cxar to
the rulers of all the northern powera
Is credited with a wide Influence in
shaping future events. Russia's re
lations with Its powerful neighbors,
Germany and Austria, have been con
siderably strained of late and the two
meetings with Emperor William are
expected to bring about a better un
derstanding. Had tbe czar stopped
there, Russia would have been In
danger of creating grave suspicions
in Great Britain and Prance, with one
of which It has an alliance and with
the other is making every effort to
draw closer together. Diplomatic
understandings are so sensitive that
the hint of an alliance with Germany
without a quid pro quo to France and
Britain might lead to serious results.
One feature of the czar's tour can
not escape the attention of every
careful observer and that ts, no mat
ter what may be tbe sentiment or In
clination of tbe rulers of all the na
tions visited, a large element of the
population of each lr Implacably hos
tile to the Russian government and
to Its ruler personally, a sentiment
which, if the powers dared, would
leave Russia without a friend in Eu
rope. A break with one, however,
would throw Russia Into the arms of
another group and seriously disturb
the balance of power.
For some Inexplanable reason Sena
tor Gore's suggestion that no candi
dates be nominated In opposition to
tbe progressive republicans who may
seek re-election to congress has not
been very enthusiastically received by
the nonpartisan democrats of Ne
braska. Nebraska has three progres
sive republican congressmen whose
seats are coveted by various budding
statesmen of democratic proclivities.
Our amiable democratic contempo
rary complains when United States sen
ators do not listen to tbe voice of the
people, and then it complains again
when they do listen to the votce of the
people. The only way the senators
could stop these complaints would be
to place themselves subject to orders
from our local democratic contempo
rary. It does not appear safe even for the
royal family to criticise the British
methods, as it now appears that the
resignation of the duke of Connaught
was requested. The navy Is a touchy
question and it behooves all In Great
Britain to speak of It softly.
It is suggested that as tbe Panama

As Mr. Mclntyre wants to get out of
