In the press dispatches he takes th
ground that there are evils aud Inequi

This Is reached In the single corpora
tion with unlimited power of capitally-
atlon and direct ownership of the j
business. Here Is eliminated the dis
turbing element of minority Interests
In constituent companies. No state
can deal with the problem singly and
master It. There Is not and cannot
be effective concert of action among
the states. In the federal constitution
production Is not within the commerce
clause, but something of regulation
and supervision can be effected under
the taxing power. We have never been
without a federal law for the encour
agement and support of manufactures.
What may be aided may be regulated.
There more stretch of federal
authority In the control of our In
dustries than in extending to them a
constant fostering care. The investor
in corporate securities needs the pro
tection that comes from supervision
and publicity. The corporation tax
just put In legal form offers the pro
tection, or at least the entering wedge
to a comprehensive control of corpor
ate operations, Insuring the rights of
the shareholders and of the public.

Our amiable democratic contem
porary, the World-Herald, Is Indulg
ing In a debate with the Fremont
Tribune in defense of its own' con
sistency on the subject of direct pri
mary legislation. The World-Herald
iias been denouncing the open Primary
ballot. Inflicted on the voters'" of, Ne-'
braska by the late deroocratlo legisla
ture, as "vicious," and tries ta square
itself for going back on this demo
cratic masterpiece by contending that
It was opposed to It all the time.
We submit, however, that the
World-Herald does not make out a
good case. The platform declaration
put out by Nebraska ' democrats in
1908 reads as follows:
We favor the present primary law, but
favor Ha amendment so aa to enable the
voter to more clearly and easily
hla choice.
To vindicate its claim to faithful
and conscientious performance ' of
every platform pledge the late demo
cratic legislature enacted the open pri
mary as redemption of this promise,
and now in convention assembled for
1909 Nebraska democrat have Incor
porated into their platform this decla
ration: We commend the governor and the leg
islature for the enactment of specific
democratic platform pledgee Into law.
Isn't this a party endorsement of
the open prlmaryt If not, what is ltT
The editor of the World-Herald was
member of the committee that
framed and promulgated this plat
form, i More than that, he is right now
a candidate who is running for office
on this very platform. If he Is not in
h'onor bound to uphold and defend the
open primary, which he says is
"vicious," what can these platform
declarations mean?
Once more we ask, Are platforms
College Illiterates.
President Faunce of Brown univer
sity says that the colleges are turning
out illiterates. If there Is anything
in the criticism It is one of those half
truths which are so attractive to col
lege speakers of our day. Graduates
of our time are not illiterate, though
they may not be precise in speech or
bookish in the habitual mental atti
tude toward the pursuits of life.
Every historian who haa atudled the
habits of the colonies and the first
half century of the republic has noted
that a college education In those
periods meant the line of study con
ventlonally supposed to suit the
preacher, doctor and lawyer. Traces
of the custom can still be found all
through the south where higher edu
cation is taken to belong to the three,
professional classes. It may be true
that the relatively small numbers of
college men "before the war" In all
sections observed literary forms,
quoted books and wrote letters with
more care than la now In evidence
That they are now more illiterate la
impossible, except that more of them
are not good and . honest students,-a
moral rather than a literary defect.
Fifty years ago a college man was
more conscious of the difference be
tween himself and the noncollegian
and maintained the Impression of
knowing about "belles-lettres," a
term then common and now almost
discarded on account of Its tinge of
More college men now understand
subjects, move about and have grasped
the meaning of books. Whether men
talk books as much or not Is another
matter. Whether they quote standard
books and assist In handing down the
phrases and contents of convention
ally established books to the same ex
tent probably calls for a negative an
swer, because women bave taken com
mand of book talk In society and the
prig has nearly retired from activity.
President Faunce has noted some
changVa from the New England view
of college accomplishments fifty years
ago, and that la the extent of bis diag
nosis of illiteracy.
Sweetening Businesi.
A New York banker who has spent
more than twenty years In Latin
American republics states the reasons
why, even with perfection of the Mis
sissippi channel and completion of the
Panama canal, the United States will
still have a comparatively small share
of trade In those countries.
Among other drawbacks, he names
uncouth traveling representatives,
nonaccoramodation of customers and
refusal of credit facilities. Another
is imperfect knowledge of the lan
guage. A Frenchman who knew no
English would do little business in
New York. An American knows this.
and yet New York houses often ex
hibit blind confidence in the luck of
Ignorant representatives" "getting
One very large corporation decided
to open branch houses In Mexico and
Panama. The two managers appointed
had never been in a Spanish-American
country and could not speak Spanish.
The house suffered severe losses and
the two men had to be replaced. That
sort of blunder will be many times re
peated, yet It la certain that with effi
cient management and an Intelligent
policy an American bank in Latin
America would nearly always be
The Latin-American of standing in
variably possesses a certain amount of
personal refinement and culture. Nat
urally he Is not favorably Impressed
by a person of uncouth manners. The
German and English exporting firms'
understand this and make a point of
sending out men who not only know
the language, but are accustomed to
dealing with cultivated society. They
are cordially received anywhere from
Mexico to Argentina, in one sense
these countries are not "practical."
but they Insist on the usages of good
society. The writer referred to tells
of an instance in Panama where an
American offlcal appeared at a func
tion attired in a sack, suit and tan
shoes, the only man present so dressed.
The bad impression has not yet worn
off. He asserts that the Latin-American
trader is as honest as any other
and as sure to pay, but he has his
customs and not to observe the cus
toms Is discourtesy.
The Panama canal will be of but
partial advantage to the United States,
except in coast-to-coast home trade
unless such frictions are removed
from Intercourse with the Latin
Americans. Even if there were no
money in it, a development of the
courtesies and refinements of Spanish-
American life would be a valuable
education among Americans. To an
extent it is humbug, but all formal
society must have its ingredient of po
lite humbug.
Slow Up.
The Bee has been giving Omaha au-
tomoblllsts the warning signal to slow
up In season and out of season. We
have preached the obvious admonition
that overspeedlng through crowded
city thoroughfares is dangerous to life
and limb. We have urged that the
ordinary precautions be taken before
the accident occurs rather than pro
ceeding wildly in the expectation of
mending the pieces after the smash-up.
Omaha is not alone in marking the
map with automobile fatalities, but be
cause automobilists in other cities are
sowing the wind and reaping the
whirlwind affords no valid excuse for
Omaha speeders doing likewise. It
would be a great credit for Omaha to
be known as the city with the saneat
automobilists and the fewest automo
bile accidents.
Therefore, we repeat the warnlug:
Blow up.
Is no one to be permitted to call' himself
a republican In Nebraaka any more unless
he allows Taft to think for him, Aldrlch
to act for him and Victor Rosewater to
lead him around by his calloused nose?
We object. We realize that some
of our friends have gotten into the
habit, when short of argument, of In
dulging In invective against our de
fenseless nose, but we Insist that. In
spite of an occasional sneezing cold, it
is not calloused.

Numerous candidates in various

Flason Thompson, manager of a rail

retorts In a circular, from which these
paragraphs are taken:
