There is Just one thing in the democratic
state platform that doe. not meet our
hearty approval and that Is the nonpartisan
Judiciary plank. It reads well and argues
out well, but has no place In practical poli
tic, and e venture the assertion that not
one of the committee that drafted the
plank ha. the remotest Idea of voting fot
any but democrats for the place and are
confident that In case a party paper .hould

plank a. traitor, to the party. This editor

bench If we can. No nonpartisan nonsense
In ours. If you please Howell. Journal.
This from the Howells Journal, an
uncompromising democratic organ
whose expressions of disgust with the
"nonpartisan nonsense" we have once
before quoted.
There is not a democratic politician
In Nebraska with sense enough to
come In out of the wet who does not
see through the "nonpartisan" bunco
game Just as clearly as does the editor
of the Howells Journal. Those demo
crats who beat the "nonpartisan"
drum loudest may possibly think they
will be able to fool someone. If they
had any Idea that their democratic
candidates could get more votes by
boldly flying the democratic banner
they would be proclaiming their de
mocracy from the housetops. But
they have persuaded themselves that
the democrats will vote for none but
democrats anyway, and that by mas
querading their democratic candidates
as "nonpartisans" they may get some
votes that they could not get without
the disguise.
That suggests another question. The
democratic state platform embraces a
plank proclaiming fealty to the idea of
"nonpartlsanshlp," and the democratic
oracle Insists that platforms are bind
ing. If a democrat, like the editor of
the Howells Journal for example, re
fuses to foreswear his democracy and
pretend that he Is a nonpartisan, does
he cease' to be a democrat?
Uniform Freight Classification.
Representatives of the railroads,
commercial bodies and the Interstate
Commerce commission are in session
at Chicago discussing one of the most
far-reaching and important problems
of transportation uniform classifi
cation. Under existing freight tariffs
goods appear in one classification In
one section carrying a certain rate, but
are included in a different classifica
tion In another district with a dif
ferent rate. This leads to collusion
and uncertainty in computing freight
rates to the detriment particularly of
shippers whose business does not war
rant employing an expert traffic man,
and even experts often overlook things
which entail loss upon the shipper.
Operating conditions and density of
traffic necessarily Justify differences
in rates in the various sections, but
there is no such good reason for differ
ences in classification. If uniformity
could be estabUhed it would be a great
advantage to shippers.
Another matter fully as important
as uniformity, is stability of classifi
cation. Changing commodities from
one classification to another affords a
most subtle and effective way of rais
ing or manipulating rates. Freight
bills often show an increase when the
railroad men point to the tariff sbeeta
to prove that there has been no in
crease. Classifications are also often
changed opportunely to give a favored
shipper an advantage, which la Just as
pernicious as rebating or cutting rates.
The same stability should attach to
classification and the same checks be
provided against changes as now sur
round changes in schedules.
Enlarging District of Columbia.
Both In and out of congress an agi
tation is going on to extend the bound
aries of the District of Columbia. The
constitution provides for establishing
the seat of government in a district
ten miles square and originally the dis
trict embraced such territory. In 1846
congress, thinking the portion south of
the Potomac river was not needed for
federal purposes, receded it to the
state of Virginia. There is a serious
question whether this act of congress
would stand the test of the courts, but
the consensus of opinion Is that reces
sion by Virginia would be the better
remedy even if the state were to be
recompensed for loss of taxable pro
perty. The reasons for extending the dis
trict are many, the most Important
being that the national capital Is grow
ing so rapidly that the south bank of
the Potomac is needed for expansion
and it is desirable the city on the
south bank should grow up in har
mony with that on the north. National
pcJde, which sustains the beautlfica
tln of the capital, would suffer if an
eyaore should grow up facing it
on the south. The federal gov
ernment has a large Investment in
bridges over the Potomac and much
other property, Including the National
cemetery, on the sovth bank which
properly belongs within the district.
Every consideration from a national
standpoint favors the rcacqulaltlon of
the territory in question and the only
objection la a sentimental one on the
part of the state of Virginia. The
ruall strip is rich in historic associa
tions and Virginians have not ceased
to resent the segregation of West Vir
ginia during war times. It is thought,
however, that these objections would
not be Insuperable If the question were
tactfully handled. A committee of the
Washington Chamber of Commerce
has charge of the movement for en
largement of the district and will pro
bably present the proposal to congress
at the regular session in December.
As usual, the active work of street

Burton for River Improvement
In an Interview, Senator Burton of
Ohio declares improvement of the nav
igable rivers and canal construction an
Imperative necessity. While chairman
of the rivers and harbors committee
of the house Mr. Burton wae generally
charged with opposing waterway im
provements, but this charge wae only
partially founded. As chairman of the
committee be was confronted by two
problems, one to keep appropriations
within bounds, and the other to com
bat visionary and Utopian schemes. In
these two struggles he was doubtless
led to opposing measures which by
themselves might have merit and H is
significant that he now takes a broader
view when the restraint of his chair
manship is removed.
Senator Burton Is conceded to be
one of the best posted men on water
way subjects In public life. He is not
moved by sentiment or prejudiced, but
his conclusions are thought out. For
this reason, hla opinion that systema
tic development of river and canal
transportations Is necessary not only
to check railroad rapacity, but to af
ford facilities which the railroads can
never give in times of heavy traffic,
should carry great weight. He sees,
as have many others, that the time is
coming when heavy bulk freight roust
seek the water routes on account of
both cheapness and inability of the
railroads to handle It expeditiously.
if the river Improvement movement
can direst itself of some of the chim
erical schemes and its advocates will
be willing to start with reasonable ap
propriations, particularly in view of
the treasury situation, there is good
reason to believe something substan
tial can be accomplished.
Railroads and the Panic.
Practically all the railroad reports
Issued within the last year contains a
demonstration that the panic of 1907
was not devoid of compensating bene
fits. Without exception they show a
decrease in expenses In proportion to
the gross revenue and in only a few
instances Is this the result of the cut
ting employes wages. This Is partic
ularly true of the stronger lines which
in spite of greatly decreased earnings
have neither cut wages nor reduced
dividends. The explanation is found
in the elimination of waste and greater
economy of methods.
When traffic was at flood tide prev
ious to the panic extravagancies crept
into management and supplies were
wasted by employes without the checks
now Imposed. A notable proof of this
came later in saving of coal consump
tion through the co-operation of em
ployes and management on one of our
leading roads. The same economy has
been pursued in other lines until the
saving in the aggregate runs into the
millions. In any large business em
ploying many men removed from direct
personal supervision there will always
be much waste, but in the case of rail
roads .'Ms has grown to be enormous
while managers were engrossed in the
larger and seemingly more important
problems of how to move the business
With the knowledge gained by
forced economies and the detailed rec
ords kept by railroads it is not likely
that the old conditions will ever re
turn and the stockholders will be large
gainers without taking anything from
the Income of the man who tolls.
Neither is the , stockholder the only
one interested for every move which
cheapens the cost of transportation
directly or indirectly benefits the ship
per and consumer in the long run.
Our old friend, Edgar Howard, ad
mits that although he served on the
resolutions committee at the late dem
ocratic state convention, "we did not
succeed in getting Just such a platform
as we desired." Accidents sometimes
happen to the best of us.
For the month just closed the births
recorded in Omaha are 226, as against

The loll of Years.
Boston Transcript.
A few years ago the pension roll reached
the million mark. The commissioner's
figures thla year will show It below that
by more than fifty thousand, and the low-
eat It has been for sixteen years. During
the month of May nearly three thousand
additions were met by more than four
thousand deaths, the decrease waa con
stant and henceforth the reduction In the
ranks of Its beneficiaries must be rapid.
While this means a lessening of the gov
ernment's burdens the economic gain will
never compensate for the loss of those
whose patriotic service entitles them to
the nation's regard.
Importance of Experiment, of Army
Surgeons In Omaha.
Army surgeons at Fort Omaha announca
the successful use, of "the typhoid serum
In the cases of three soldiers belonging to
the garrison. After Inoculation these
men have stood the severest tests of ex
posure, to the typhoid bacillus.
On June 17 the three men were vaccl

developed mild cases of typhoid, from
which they recovered quickly. A second
vaccination followed, with no trace of the
disease appearing, showing they had be

blood was concerned.
8o far the army doctors had proved
their caae. It remained to be seen If the
three soldiers could withstand the test of
drinking water containing typhoid bacilli.
A million germs were put Into ordinary
water that had been allowed to aland In

The value of this discovery is evidently
great. It seema to place typhoid fever,
on of tha scourges of the world, in the
same class with smallpox, which, by the
use of vaccine, has become one of our

Nebraska has not as many electoral votes
as Texas. It has a far better chance than
Texas to name democratic candidates.

who Texas favored for the nomination.

Knbatantlal Ground for Criticism
Made by Justice Brewer.
New York Press.
When Justim Brewer sticks to his old
text of the laws delays he will not in
vite such attacks as Senator Brown's. As
a member of the tribunal which may b
vitally concerned with the construction of
Income tax laws the able Justice can af
ford to leave the questions of legislation
on this subject to congress and the people
of the states. Nothing Is gained by his
Intrusion upon the debate, whether he Is
right or wrong In his views.
We are glad, for this reason no less
than for the sake of the cause of reform
In our Judicial precedure. that In hla In
terview at Milwaukee, Justice Brewer re
turned to his mutton and condemned as
outrageous the reversals of Judgments on
technicalities when substantial Justice has
been done. All the country agrees with
him. too, that the farce, of prolonging the
simple process of picking a Jury to many
weeks is one of which an end ought to be
made. Fortunately the president In hts
tlme on the bench has seen and felt tha
evils of this kind, and may be counted on
to procure from congress some action
which will set the states a good example.
At the same time that Justice Brewer
was denouncing the delays of the law
In the I'nlted States, the lord chief
Justice of England, sitting in Old Bailey,
was showing us how much better the
English deal with their criminals. The
trial, conviction, and sentence to death
of Dhlngra, assassin of Lieutenant Colonel
Wylie. consumed altogether Just one hour.
In this country it is doubtful If the Jury
would have been Impaneled Inside of a
week. The trial would go on for a
month or two. and If the culprit went
to the death chair In two or three years
It would be because he lacked money to
employ counsel skilled In the hairsplitting

Lincoln Dries Its Tears and Lifts the
Lid of Joy.
Kansas City Star.
The country can Just take it from Mr.
Bryan to fall Into the vernacular that
the democratic leader has no Intention of
deserting Lincoln as his place of residence.
In an Interview In Chicago Mr. Bryan put
to rest the report that he was planning to
make his home In Texas.
Added to the convincing strength of this
denial coming straight from Mr. Bryan
nlmself, is what the politicians call the
logic of the situation. The country was
greatly surprised to read that Mr. Bryan
contemplated the desertion of Nebraska for
Texas, because there appeared no reason
foy such a move. Mr. Bryan has become
thoroughly Identified with Nebraska. In
the minds of the people he "belongs" there,
and politicians do not "pull up stakes" and
leave a constituency such as Mr. Bryan has
created for himself In that state without
some potent reason which they are willing
to share with the public.
In a political way Texas holds no ad
vantage for Mr. Bryan which he does not
appear to enjoy in Nebraska. It Is doubt
ful even if Texas with Its democratic ma
jority always represented In the six figure
column, 'm at heart In such close sympathy
with the things Mr. Bryan stands for In
public life as Nebraska with its very slight
margin of votes between the two parties.
The ease with which stories obtain circula
latlon passes comprehension. The report
of Mr. Bryan's Intention to desert Nebraska
bore every Indication of absolute authen
ticity. But for all that It laVkert plausi
bility. Some way or other the country Juat
knew that Bryan would never part com
pany with Lincoln. Neb. not, at least, for

1 went a flshin' one fine day
I think twas in July
Soft summer clouds wet sailing
Across the blue, blue sky:
The threatening pine grove bristled
I pon i lie slope af It 'twould
Ho! a Jerk a bite! I landed
A great big piece of driftwood.
I went to fish snoiher day.
The sky nar scowling Mark:
A cold rain wet my shoulders,
A cold wind chilled my hack;
The distant lightning quivered.
The sudden thunder rolled;
I fished the livelong day and eaugh
A most tremendous cold
I went a flshin. sure I did
One day not long ago
The bluejays ecretimed above my head,
The ssnd-plpers skimmed low;
The whole wood chorus their refrain
Were ready to begin Oh!
A twlch. a Jerk! I wound my reel
And lo a good-sled minnow.
I went n flshin' oh. how blue
The sky beyond the cliff.
With a white cloud sailing on It
Like to a fairy's skiff:
The picture was reflected
In the water at mv feet Oh!
A hlte-a bite! my flesh the bait
The fish? A big mosquito.
I went a flshin'-found a fin
Where pine deep shadows cast;
1 had a feelln' that fine day
I'd catch s fish st last:
I snled a belted kingfisher
Close-watching on a stump.
The hook got tangled In mv sleeve.
Id raught a great Mg chump.
