Endi the Doubtful Period.
Thp revival of business a'l along
predicted "as noon at the tariff it set
tled", has net In, and the tariff Itself
for Ihe moment seems of minor Impor
tance, as the estimate of Interior
crops and trade are mad on reliable
data. Som opinion are that the
country will produce 60,000,000
bushels more of wheat than last year,
275,000,000 bushel more of corn and
191,000,000 bushels more of oats.
The total yield of train Is plarad at
4 , S 8 1 ,000,000 bushels, or 42.000.000
bushels more than the immense crop
of 1906. The conditions In Europe
make it certain that the wheat crop
will be sold at remunerative prices.
It Is not expected that the fancy fig
ures of the Patten speculation will be
reached or attempted, and that Is all
the better. Ruch prices rarely do the
grower any good and must restrict the
'foreign market. Good prices through
. . . .. , ...
the selling period are better and thla
haT- nen., f0 sell at
high and steady prices
All around, expert business men an
ticipate the best farm yield ever made
In this country. Nor should people
forget that every kind of facility for
handling crops rapidly and economic
ally has been Improved. While there
was a cessation In building cara and
locomotives, there haa gradually been
an Increase of motive power, and a
vast Improvement in methods of mov
ing freight. The profit in transporta
tion will be better for both railroads
Building operations have risen to
an unprecedented volume. For the
firBt six months of this year the rec
ord showed an increase of 50 per cent
over last year, and a slight Increase
over the remarkable year of 1906.
lOvcn with new mills, the teitlle In
dustry, one of the greatest employing
activities, especially In New England
and Pennsylvania, baa about reached
Ita capacity. The financial centers
have cheap money In abundance and
the railroads can obtain means to re
sume the high rate of betterment
shown In 1896.
The bot period has apparently not
Inflicted serious damage on corn. Pos
sibly on the whole It may have in
creased the yield by Improving the
quality and soundness of the grain
and perfecting the crop in wet and
weedy soil. With 700,000,000 bushels
of wheat and anything like 3,000,
000,000 of corn, the amounts now re
garded as assured, the flnancea of the
country can hardly be In anything but
a condition to promote confidence and
activity. The buying humor of the
agricultural districts confirms all sta
As the hot period comes to an end

Some of the prophets hold that the
huge grain crop of this year will give
a surplus of supplies and a reduction
Of living expenses. Other students do
not see what cause will reduce prices
In the chief articles of household cost.
Meat Is the costliest on tbe table and
it Is higher than ever. At Omaha
cornfed steers yesterday brought $6.90
to 7.25; hogs, $7.58; choice lambs,
$7.35 to $7.85. Tbese rates do not
seem to forecast low prices. Clothing
is not cheaper, and the tariff on both
woolens and cottons does not call for
a reduction on the cost of dressing in
the average family. Bread, vegetablea
and other staples are not cheapening
to a perceptible extent. Shoes, hata
and similar absolutely necessary ar
ticles remain at the usual level.
A different kind of supplies, butter,
egg8, poultry, cheese, milk and fruit
has been tending upward for several
years. Fruits vary with the crops, but
have risen to a high and steady levdl

It would be pleasant to tell house
wives that things will be materially
reduced In price with tbe great bar
vests In sight, but this country haa
many mouths to feed and many bodies
to clothe, and it baa a babit of liking
the best of things to eat and to wear.
Whether it is a good habit la some
times questioned, but it is a habit ao
quickly acquired that an immigrant of
the poorest class Is generally wearing
American clothes and often eating
American varieties of food within a
week of landing on the pier.
It Is not sate to calculate on cheap
food and clothing unless the house
holder expects to buy Inferior grades
of meat and drygoods.
And now comes our old friend,
Edgar Howard, whose Intense par
tisanship would not let him be weened
from een the checkbook candidate,
and with the zeal of a new convert,
makes this convincing plea for non
partlsanahip: Surely It will be a nonpartisan move to
aik that demorrata b given two of the
even place on the uprm bench.
Why so modest, Edgar? Why not
ask that the democrats be given three
of the seven Judges on tbe supreme
bench. But perhaps that is the game.
Two out of three this year, two out of
three next year, and then another one
the year following. Then repudiate
the nonpartisan idea and take the two
remaining that had been left as
crumbs for mere republicans.
Our dear friend, Edgar Howard, and
all of tbe other nonpartisan democrats
for office only, fight carefully ahy of
the history in the case In 1897 the
democrats elected one of the three
Judges who then' constituted Ne
braska supreme court, in lS9a they
got a second Judge, which gsve them a
majority. In 1901, totally oblivious
of their nonpartlaanshlp, they nomi
nated a straightout democrat with tbe
hope and expectation of making -the
court consist wholly of three of their
own partisan Judges. If we remem
ber correctly, Edgar Howard neglected
to nay In 1901 that It would be a non
partisan move to ask that the repub
licans be given one of the three places
on tbe supreme bench. These new
fledged nonpartisans should not let
their seal for democratic place-seekera
Immigrants and Information.
The division of labor In the De
partment of Commerce and Labor tias
within a few weeks furnished useful
aaslstance to 3,000 immigrants who
seek homes In the new lands of the
northweat. It i not the best way of
giving immigrants practical inlorma
tlon, hut it Is better than any way be
fore put in use. At least it has the
virtue of being honestly conducted
under Impartial regulations by the
government. It Is not the colored
prospectuses of private Investments,
and not tbe callous allurements of
men who buy in order that they may
persuade other people to lose money.
Immigration Is a process too useful
In the progress of the country to be
left, as It often has been, to the hap
hazard of promoters. Tbe immigrant
baa been at every stage our best
friend. He has not only made a little
money for himself, but collectively the
surplus of his labor has made the in
creasing opportunities out of which
former Immigrants have made money.
It Is an Intermittent but Invaluable
growth. The tide of Immigration,
checked by the recent hard times In
the labor centers, is rolling back.
Next year may bring 2,000,000 work
ers to America. As usual, most of
them will stop within 100 miles of the
coast, but with proper effort an In
creased proportion can be taught to
come to this bank of the Missouri. We
need not give up the effort because
recent immigrants are- more of tbe
town class and not of the kind which
developed the farms of the west. They
are producers and consumers. They
have their way of doing it, but they
produce wealth and provide markets.
Men of their clasa think that they are
going to share the wealth they see
gathered, but they cannot take part
In the works of commerce without en
larging tbe store of wealth. The com
mon fund Is increased. The Immi
grant must pay his bills and have hla
doctor, lawyer, groceryman and
butcher. Even if he goes back to
Italy or Greece, he leaves a stock
her out of what be has earned. Aa
a rule all Immigrants are desirable
citizens. It does not spoil this truth
If we have to add the supplement that
some are less- desirable than others.
There la no rule for the movements of
population, and every shipload that
comes helps a .body already here to
find more desirable homes. Restless
Ohio men are going to Canada, Iowa
men to either Washington or Okla
homa, aa tbe case may be. New Immi
grants take their placea or push some
body forward who does. It Is for the
west to invite and Inform the Immi
grants from other states or from Eu
rope. Immigration has made America
great, and moreof it Is needed, until
Nebraska has as many people as Penn
sylvania and Wyoming assessment
equals that of Illinois.
President and School Children.
It is announced from Chicago that
one of the features of President Taft's
coming visit there will be the passing
in review almost of the entire body of
school children of the big city. A
similar feature for the president's en
tertainment in Omaha had already
been suggested to Ak-Sar-Ben officers
having the program in charge.
If the school children are given an
opportunity to see and greet the presi
dent and carry the impression home
with them it will not make so much
difference tf limitations of time pre
vent him meeting all tbe grown-ups.
The president could be taken on an
automobile tour immediately on his
arrival in Omaha, with stops at a dozen
of the principal school buildings In the
city, at which the children attending
the schools In the section could be
congregated and massed to receive

la called for. One of the candidates
for county clerk down in Lancaster
county has been advertising that, if

get along with the assistance of only
one deputy. We submit that this Is
a flagrant violation of the rules of the

contagious, might undermine the foun

Secretary of the Treasury MacVeagh. hn
beeto seired with an artistic longing for a
more shapely form of pSper currency. It
Is proposed to develop a general scheme of
systematizing the designs of all Issues of
paper money in such a manner that the
aame portraits and emblems will appear on
all notes of the same denomination.
It also Is proposed that each of the de
signs shall be so distinctive that no con
fusion as to the denomination signified
shall occur. A rhange in the a ie of gov
ernment' paper currency also Is under
contemplation. A portrait of the late
drover Cleveland eoon Is to appear on all
$10 bills. This plan has been In contem
plation before and practically was ordered
by George B. Cortelyou, former secretary
of the treasury. Secretary MacVeagh, upon
entering office, held the order up, not on
account of political consideration, but In
order to permit the question of a general
redesigning of the paper money Of the
country to be taken up.
The director of the bureau of engraving
and printing has completed tentative new
designs to go upon all the paper money
of national Issue, such as silver certifi
cates, gold certificates and treaaury notes,
and they are now up for approval by As
sistant .Secretary Norton, who has the
matter mainly In charge.
Distinctive designs for one dollar, five
dollar, twenty dollar and fifty dollar bills,
and perhaps those of even higher denomi
nations, have been prepared. The two dol
lar bill may be abolished. It is reported.
Its fate now hangs In the balance, there
having been many complaints directed
against It, owing to Its tendency to stealth
ily slip In with Its one dollar brotheis and
cause woe. if the two dollar bill Is re
tained, it Is certain that its design will be
such as to make It flash out from a pile
of one dollar or five dollar bills with a
prominence that will permit of no mistake
in ita handling.

Twenty yeara ago or more, afier a par
ticularly disastrous bank failure. John Bur
roughs, who has been a banking of'l.-iai
a well a a naturalist, wrote a msgsstne
article called "Directors Should Direct." In
It he pointed out that that failure and
others came from the Ignorant of rtlrectois
to to what ment on In their banks, an.l
Insisted that they should assume the re
sponsibility which the use of their names
devolves upon them.
After nearly a generation the government
ha taken the hint. The controller of the
currency recently ent out a erie of
twenty-nine questions to the 50 OiO bank
directors In this country. Not all of the
directors answered, but enough Informa
tion was secured to show that a large and
interesting set of dummies figure as til
rectors, their chief activity being In at
tendance upon directors' meetings, which
Is a profitable as well a distinguished way
of passing n morning. Mighty few of them
had any hand In passing on the loans
made hy their banks or knew anything
about the solvency of their borrowers.
The result ia that the national banks are
now divided Into two classes. Those In
which the directors attend to business have
the usual two Inspections a year. Tho
whose directors are dummies are honored
by four visit from the Inspector. Yotl can
find the government rating of your bank
by learning how many times the Inspector
comes around. Another result Is that there
