Outside of New England iavlngs banks,
in t,.,iMlnr anrf lnan form,
were not largely used. If the postal
savings bank plan has taken on addi
tional suggestions the recent variations
are well understood growths. The
origin and development has had no
obscurities. The funding variation re-
pently considered by President Taft la
no more than an evolution out of the
Impending change In the system of Is-
suing bank notes. Neither note Issue
nor savings funds are strictly func-jthe
Hons of commercial banking. If the
advocate, of the postal aavlngs plan
should tell national bankers that It Is

Perhaps Mr. Taft is not ready to be
dogmatlo about the virtue, of the pos-
tal savings bank, although he has al-
ready shown himself to be firmly In-
sistent for it. Certain classes In cer-
tain localities are ready and willing to
lend their funds to the government at
2 per cent. Other people, who have
other view, and will not lend at i per
cent, can not be depended upon to Join
the army oT postofflce depositors. Let
that come out as it may. But get It
out of the heads of national bankers
that the safeguarding and custody of
savings is a vested right or any more
the function of a commercial bank than
of the federal treasury.

hla day off to vote at the employer's
expense and the usual relations go

In everyday life the two races are
not violently antagonistic. The editor
of the Courier-Journal mentions with
understanding the paradox of racial
antagonism co-existent with mutually
pleasant relations between Individuals.
A case Is here described In which
there Is no problem except a theoret

Yore Efficient Courts.
Court reform, the president said at
Chicago, is one of the subjects nearest
to his own hopes. He might have
added that it is one of the subjects
nearest to the life of the people.
Mr. Taft touched an obstacle to re-
form when he mentioned the fact that
court procedure Is almost wholly in
the hands of men trained as lawyers,
whose blaa la all toward giving first
consideration to the convenience and
success Of Practitioners. At the be-
ginning of the republic our courts were
practically angusn courts, wun me
same officials, the same procedure and
the aame habits. The same super-
clllousness toward clients and the
same disregard of administrative
economies were long customary in
American circuits. The affectation
that lawyers and Judges were of a su-
perlor class maintained itself. Nobody
could reform because a strong conven-
tlon doea not reform Itself and no
outside class had the power. An oc-
casional and reluctant scrap of cor-
rectlve legislation has forced Itself on

Whether any one man dominated
the republican state convention la a
matter of opinion. The editor of The
Bee certainly did not dominate anyone
who did not want to be dominated.
The chairman of the convention named
the resolutions committee himself, and
the committee reported the platform
unanimously and, more than that, the
convention adopted It by unanimous
vote. The editor of the Newa tat In
that convention aa a delegate from
Lancaster county and voted "Yea" on
the platform, or, at any rate, did not
vote "No," and no one dominated his
vote but himself
The pretense that there 1. "a clever
trick In the use of words" in the tariff
plank is merely an afterthought to ex-
cuse two or three delegates who are
trying to get away from it after hav
ing voted for it. At the time it was
adopted the tariff bill was in confer
ence and the president was exerting
himself strenuously to secure certain
concessions as against the Aldrlch
crowd In the senate end the Cannon
crowd In the house. The republicans
of Nebraska came out in the open at
the opportune moment with an
dorsement of the president's position
and instructed their representatives in
Washington to line up with the presl
dent and accept no compromise that
waa not satisfactory to him. Thl. they
did. and this was what the republicans
of Nebraska wanted them to do. If this

Political Power of the West.
Bt. Louis Globe-Democrat.
The west has long been strong enough
at Washington to get whatever It wanted,
If Its representatives could have been In
duced to stand together In political action.
The section has elected so many men to
the house and to the aenate, that, had they
formed an organization .on certain lines,
and for certain objects, and held these
lines unbroken, the influence of the west
would have been paramount In all ques
tions of vital Interest to Its people. While
the west has not had, and haa not yet, a
legislative majority, It haa been so strongly
represented that an Intelligent and co
hesive organisation, placing it tn a posi
tion where It could have held and wielded
the balance of power through combination,
would have made it supreme In all na
tional matters directly affecting It.

Writing from London to the Courier
Journal, Henry Watterson draws a con
trast between British and American poli
tics and politicians, much to the advantage
of the farmer, Evidently the peculiar
brand of politics which has scandalized
Kentucky In recent years dimmed the
glasses of the veteran editor while draw
ing the contrast. The local view. Instead
of the national, only enn account for the
bold assertion that "we have a long way
to travel before we att.tln what one must
honestly call the superior civilisation ot
England." He says the English people
are more advanced In Apolitical percepti
bility and Individual discrimination, huvlng
behind them 'two hundred years of Con
stitutions! monarchy of stable and orderly
government based on public opinion, and
a thousand years of formative experience.
"They are less emotional than we are."
he writes, "less quick cm trigger. They re
quire results. Their newspapers are models
of composure and Intelligence. Mere as
sertion does not go nearly so far. Some
proof Is demanded. An Engllch news
paper which made a business of belabor
ing another newspaper would be voted a
crank and a bore and would drop out of
circulation. A politician of reputation and
responsibility could not afford to stand for
an untruth, even for a palpable misrepre
sentation. Such canards as serve their
term during election times In America
would fall flat In England. Vicious editors,
Inspired by malice or having axes to grind,
are relegated to the slums of politics and
Journalism. They could In the nature ot
things have no existence. So much Is
clear gain to the body spiritual, no less
than to the body- corporate."
British statemen are a quick and clever
in giving consistency a solar plexus as
any on top of the earth. In Britain, as
elsewhere, Individual opinion, whether
lordly or underling, lends a friendly ear to
the pulsations of the pocketbook. The
lordly Lord Roseberry, hitherto a liberal
of the conservative type, continues his as
saults on the ministerial budget, denounc
ing It as rank socialism, destructive to
capital,- and all that. The cause of hla
race Is the proposed Increase In the In
come tax. the Inheritance tax and a tax
on the ''unearned Increment" of land-
that is, taxing land to the full value aa
determined by the government. These
taxes, particularly the land tax, strikes
at vast landed estates, much of which are
non productive, being reserved for the
pleasure of the owners, and hitherto sub
ject to taxation on nominal valuation.
Lord Roseberry Is not only a land owner
but a representative of the land owning
class, and rather than see his class taxed
on full value, he now advocates going to
the extremity of rejecting the budget In
the house of lords. In Justification ot this
unusual action he points to the land tax
and the liquor license tax as legislation
Injected into a revenue measure. On the
crucial point of the right of the lords to
modify a finance bill, supporters of the
budget can draw the deadly citation from
a apeech of Lord Roseberry in the gilded
chamber itself. When the Budget of IBM
denounced as socialistic almost as fiercely
as that of this year came before the lords.
Rosebery deprecated even discussion of
the measure. He said l
"I do not think it is necessary for the
purpose of passing the bill that they (the
peers) should make themselves master of
It, because I deprecate altogether the Idea
that the House of Lords haa anything to
do with money bills. Any discussion of It
must obviously be academic, and there
fore I should have thought the least said
soonest mended with regard to this meas
A fact of deep significance to the corn
trade of the world Is the rapid Increase In
exports of corn from South Africa. It Is
not long since South African farmers be
gan to realize the possibilities of corn
growing and the great value of the grain
In the markets of the world. Soil and
climate are particularly favorable to the
growth of the cereal and the produot is
said to be the finest quality. This year's
orop Is unusually large and the country
expects to export 25,000 tons by the end of
the year. So great Is the output that the
Natal railroad is overwhelmed with con
signment to the seaports. Experiments in
corn growing are also in progress In Abys
sinia. Trained American etudenta from
Tuskogee Institute were sent to Abyssinia
at the request of King Menelik and are
directing agricultural work among the na
tives, giving special attention to corn
growing. These distant developments are
encouraging, and calculated to make corn
growers In the United States sit up and
take notice. Evidently the middle west Is
not to have a monopoly on the cereal king,
but the old-new world will have to travel
far before It becomes s serious rival,
Spain Is beginning to realize what a ser
ious conflagration haa been kindled by the
ruction over mining Interests near Mellla.
Reinforcements are being hurried to the
Riff coast of of Morocco with all possible
speed. General Marina In command of the
forces at the front has done little more
than hold his ground, much of It at severe
loss and is evidently awaiting an ade
quate force before attacking the main pos
ition of the enemy. Very little Informa
tion filters through Spanish sources. Cor
respondents of French and British papers
give rather disquieting view regarded the
ability of Spain to quickly end the war.
Thus one correspondent writes: "Nobody
doubts that the Rlfenoa can put about
(10,000 warriors In the field. No one who
has ever seen the country, but Is aware It
ts a barren land, as mountainous and more
devoid of water than waa the TranFvaal.
To carry pn the war more than 100.000 men
are necessary If any serious Impression Is
ever to be made. Where can Spain find
such an army, or. If found, how can she
keep It In the field?
