The Tour Begins.
President Taft begins his tour at a
time when both he and the country
will be receptive and absorbent to
ward the major subjects of govern
ment. The president has pleased the
south with a remarkably well selected
list of local officials and with an
equally tactful series of utterances.
The northwest and central west are
In the good humor of rich crops and
It Is not a swollen phrase of com
parison to say that at this time Mr.
Taft and the country are in what can
be called a more "chummy" frame of
mind than the country and any presi
dent have ever been. He will listen
while he talks and they will talk
while they listen. Neither will be
curbed with the caution of suspicion.
Mr. Taft may be more popular or less
popular than either of his Immediate
predecessors. The conditions bring
him nearer to the voters In the discus
sion of the issues foreseen at the
moment. The tour Is a sort of pageant
in which the first executive appears
before the people. The deeper mean
ing is that the president takes account
of the state of the country,- In Jef
ferson's or Jackson's time a president
could deal only with reports and they
would be meager. In this period he
can literally make a series of calls on
the people, sit on the step and talk
Mr. Taft is exactly the man to get
the most and give the most in such
an unprecedented experience. He will
touch closely every part of the coun
try and understand every syllable and
Intonation of what he hears. It is a
mighty thing that the president is
transparently honest and understood
by the people. The tour Is not a dis
play, but a grand Inquiry on the evolv
ing opinions of this nation.
Irresponsible Atlantic City.
Up and down the Atlantic coast the
papers treat Atlantlo City as a regular
and absorbing topic of discussion. It
ranks as one of the non-assimilated
facts of the country's scheme of ex
istence. The New York Evening Post,
a paper as serious as any we have,
calls upon the New Jersey legislature
to end a situation that is freshly scan
dalous every Sunday.
There Is nothing unnatural about
this situation. Atlantlo City differs
from other communities in having an
insignificant local population; Even
that insignificant citizenry recks little
of what happens unless it is on the
day 'twixt Saturday and Monday, It
Is a strip of beach holding a board
walk and many hotels of many ranks.
In short, it is the greatest Sunday
summer resort In eastern America.
With the resolute 'persistence of a
beleaguered Rochelle or Joppa, the peo
ple have decided to let anybody sell
what anybody else will buy, regardless
of the minor subdivision of time. There
Is no dispute or battle. They Just re
fuse to stop taking good money from
the wayfarer- Sheriffs, constables,
Judges and the governor have notified,
lectured, decided and proclaimed. The
Evening Post lets Governor Fort take
refuge behind a plea that he has ex
hausted his powers. He has not, for
he can call out the mllltla and put the
army of New Jersey In camp, if It is
not mosquito time, and a sentinel at
every neglectful door. At this point
the governor dodges, because he knows
that he would touch the New Jersey
tickle-bone and pocketbook. This is
not a fling at Governor Fort, .who is a
man of dignity and shrewd good sense,
unluckily caught in a situation, like
tilting at pillows, striding on the edge
of the ridiculous. If there were a local
population big enough to be respon
sible or formidable, the ' governor
could act effectively. As it Is, weighty
organs of thought, like the Evening
Post, should not harass the poor gov
ernor with appeals to the law. No man
taxes an oatn to make himself look
fooltob. Atlantic City resembles a
run of herring or a flight of snipe. It
does not obey the law.
That is the story of Atlantic City.
It is not vicious, wicked, immoral or
Immodest. It is simply irresponsible.
Natural laws which are at first ob
scure often overthrow the cunning
and capital of able men. An Instance
arises In the manufacture of cotton.
At one time conservative Investors be
lieved that ultimately the south would
manufacture all of Its own raw cot
ton, against Lancashire and New Eng
land. The southern factories multi
plied and enlarged, to be sure, until
they learned to use more cotton than
New England. The relative gain, how
ever, does not Include the finer and
more highly finished grades.
If there is an enduring cause which
In the future forbids the south to dom
inate the manufacture, It is the
homely one of insufficient water of
the proper quality. Persons who
ought to know, say that this defi
ciency Is permanent. Large Investments
have been made In establishing bleach
erles, but they have been failures. Few
cotton men expect results from arte
sian wells. Cotton intended for high
grade manufacture goes to New Eng
land or to England.
Labor is another weakness of the
south. The negro is not considered
most desirable In highly organized fac
tory work and the white labor from
the hill country is as a class not
steady and dependable. These labor
conditions might be gradually altered
for the better, though up to the present
the good factory hands come from the
old Huguenot, Scotch and German
stock which was there before the rev
The water problem seems beyond
the arts of human Ingenuity. It makes
a separation which confines the region
of raw cotton to the unbleached cloth
and assigns fine cloth to the north.
There has been surprise In the public
mind that the spindles of New Eng
land have been largely Increased, even
within a year. In ten years, while the
number of factories in the south have
developed, the splndleage of the north
has steadily kept Its place at the head.
The New England trade papers have
now settled down to confidence that
New England still has Its work of
finishing cotton cloth and making it
into the varied staples generally
known as dry good and white goods.
It Is a valuable lesson in the laws of

In an elaborate analysis of Harrl-
man's temperament and methods the
Boston Herald Judges that speculation
as to where the mantle will fall is not
settled by picking a natural heir or a
personal representative, but by answer
ing the other question. Can the mar
shals whom he has trained be relied
upon to command the confidence of
the same men whose vast stores of
capital were intrusted to his genius?
The question points to the answer.
These marshals will have to prove
themselves before they wear for a term
of years the Harrlman crown and
are settled on the Harrlman throne.
Judge Lovett Is a man of strength.
versatility and resources, but to handle
the routine of property without serious
error is widely different from fighting
great battles, formulating great Boli
des and encountering great obstacles.
He may do all that Harrlman did as
well or even better than Harrlman,
but he has to demonstrate his ability
to go it alone.
It may be safely predicted that the
chief Harrlman properties will each be
preserved intact, In good order and in
profitable condition. How much of
the vast mass of capital will be oper
ated and directed as a whole, no man
can say with confidence, because not
even Mr. Harrlman, brought to life
again, could tell. , Too much depends
on Intractable factors. Too much
hangs on the uncertain factor of what
notions other men will take and what
Is their ability to carry a notion into
Taking the most optimistic view of
the prevision and foresight of Mr. Har
rlman, the good faith of strong men
who will try to uphold the stocks,
and the skill of Judge Lovett and his
colleagues, there are yet man, com
plex problems yet to be solved. The
successor of Harrlman must find him
self, must fight, strive and acquire,
until he Justifies leadership and com
mands submission to the dual lan
guage of whip and reins.
Shrewd men will be on the lookout
for a successor of the calibre of Harrl
man among the newly elected board of
directors. The law of finance seems
to be to throw greater and greater
power Into the hands of men of the
great commander class. It is a one-
man age, though people waste a great
deal of platitude on efforts to prove
the contrary. Today there is no man
on earth who knows how to align all
the so-called Harrlman properties.
Yet alignment is desired by the share
holders. The situation of a group of
more or less unartlculated stocks calls
for a Harrlman to maintain them In an
orderly and closely knit working pro
cess of operation. It Is better to wait
for what happens than to nominate the
next autocratic ruler. Meanwhile, the
people of the Harrlman territory have
the duty of helping the officers to
maintain the credit and develop the
facilities of the roads.
State Fair Attendance.
The shortage In attendance on this
year's State fair Is provoking more or
less general discussion, focused princi
pally at Lincoln, as to the whys and
wherefores. After interrogation of
local merchants and business men the
Lincoln Journal summarises as fol
lows: The causes offered (or falling off In
business are: The rainy season, which de
creased the state fair attendance on the
first three days; the lack of decorative
Illumination and street attractions in the
city; and the fact that Lincoln Is a "dry"
town. 'While some declare that prohibition
has hurt their trade, others declare It had
no effect whatever on their business, and
others say that their business has tn
eretsed since the prohibition rule has been
in effect. Borne complaint lias been made
that the night attractions at the fair
grounds hurt business In the down town
section. Three attractions served to draw
people from the city the saloons at Have
lock. the fireworks at the fair grounds
during the evening, and Capital Beach.
Capital Beach did a business during the
end of the week that was measured only
by the transportation faollltles.
It Is everyone's guess and all these
reasons doubtless enter Into the aggre
gate result, but there Is one additional
suggestion that seems thus far to have
escaped notice, and that Is that the
State fair as a great modern agricul
tural exposition needs a systematic
and up-to-date publicity and promotion
campaign. Present methods may have
been all right In their day, but their
day Is passing. It Is not enough to
have a good thing, but the people must
be made aware of It and impressed
with the desire to take advantage of it
The State fair management ap
parently spent in the neighborhood of
160.000 to produce a show lasting five
days, and success or failure depended
oh getting the people there at the par
ticular time the gates were open. How
much of the $60,000 was spent for ad
vertising and other forms of publicity
we do not know, but we Venture the
guess that it was a comparatively
small amount. Tens of thousands of
dollars are hung up sb premiums and
speed prir.es and other thousands paid
for amusement features, salaries and
wages of employes doubtless all
legitimate, so far as they go, but
bound to fall far from the mark if the
people are not brought out to see the
exhibits. The State fair ought to take
in $100,000, and it doubtless would If
it spent $10,000 or $20,000 for adver
tising and be big money ahead at that.
According to the financial exhibit In
the annual report of the Young Men's
Christian association, along with re
ceipts on the building fund of about
$9,600, la the item, "Cost of collec
tion, $998.98." Why should the
Young Men's Christian association
have to pay 10 per cent discount to
collect subscriptions made when the
building fund campaign was on?
Observant spectators in a court
house audience always noted that It
took a smart man to have the evidence
right In cow cases for railroads. Judge
Lovett gained fame by that route and
now he is executive head of the Harrl
man roads. The moral Is that young
lawyers should learn the real people
by close application to cow cases.
Those republloan editors at Lincoln,
who are now balking on the repub
lican state platform which as dele
gates they voted to adopt, must have
been caught unawares In the conven
tion by having the motion put before
they had time to consult with their as
sociates on. the outside and get orders
on what they should do.

NEBRASKA POLITICAL COMMENT
Falrbury News: Tou do not hsve to be
a pop to be a progressiva republican, but
a good many fall to recognise the differ
ence. Rushrllle Recorder: All you hsve to do
to discover that democratic nonpartisan
bias Is to look up the democratlo record In
the halls of congress and legislatures, par
ticularly the late Nebraska legislature. If
that does not convince you of the genuine
ness of the latest democratlo fake nothing
Fremont Herald: Lincoln had a grouch all
week. It has been biliously kicking about
exorbitant charges for shoe shlnea, for
for lodging, about signs over the sidewalks,
high prices charged for meals, the attend
ance at the state fair and, lastly, yowling
because Douglas county took the main
prlxea for farm products. It rained nearly
all week and It Is evident that Lincoln has
water on the brain, hy not go to a drug
store and take suthin for It?
Kearney Hub: The country newspapers
of the state continue to have their say
upon the subject of leaders, for which a
call has gone forth from some over-excited
newspapers at the state capital. The Falr
bury News Is of the opinion that It Is not
leaders that we want, but that the demand
Is for "servants" Instead. The News truth
fully adds that we have no reason to com
plain of the men as a whole who are serv
ing us In the national congress or the state
capltol, and It sums up the whole matter
concisely when It declares that "the faoi
that we are doing away with the leaders'
Is a compliment to the Intelligence of the
republicans of the state." 80, when the
consensus of opinion has been reached It
will be found that the people are of a mind
to get along without being led by self
styled or conspicuously , -labeled party
Falrbury Gasette: The democratic state
platform of the current year Is quite frank
in one particular. It offers with apparent
satisfaction this phrase: "We endorse the
successful business administration of a
democratlo governor." The framer of this
Immortal document no doubt had In mind
the admirable thrift of Governor Shallen
berger In charging a fat fee to a number
of public schools of the state for which he
delivered commencement addresses on In
vitation. That method of touching up the
publto schools of the state of which he is
governor, speaks in the h'Khest terms of
the thrift and business sagacity of the
democratlo governor and entitles htm to
the platform commendation of a "success
ful business administration" of his own
affairs at least. It would be Interesting
to know if the payment exacted for these
addresses to public schools was accepted
as a "non-partisan" In accordance with
the current democratlo platform or Just
as a stratghtout democratic governor. The
Incident had much of the odor and ear

Tork Republican: The Republican does
not ask or expect that the democrats shall
vote the republican ticket. Borne may have
Individual preferences for republicans on
the ticket and vote for them. But as a
general rule it is good, sound political ad
vice for democrats to vote their own ticket
and republicans to vote their own ticket.
When you get a democrat Into office you
find that you have simply taken an enemy
to your bosom, and when the tlms comes
that you are particularly anxious for the
election of your own party candidate this
democrat whom you have helped Into offloe
by your vote Is on hand In the position of
influence to which y6u helped him, work
ing for the defeat of your man and the
election of the other. With every foot
hold of official position the voters of a
party give to the opposition, they find it
more difficult to carry their own ticket.

The surprising thing about the revelation

The katydid's shrill orchestra

Whose graceful branches swaying,

Their necks are growing limber;
