the government on the foundation of

evidence were needed that the pres
ent laid more stress on this side of
the proposed tax than on Its treasury

bered that the rate, first tentatively
fixed ot two per cent, was later re
duced, with his approval, to one per

All this goes to prove that the pres
ident was eminently correct in his
original declaration that the publicity
and regulation features of the federal
corporation tax law would be the real
step in advance toward the assertion
of federal authority over menacing
corporations. This law will doubtless
have to run the gauntlet of the courts
for a test of Its constitutionality, but
should it be upheld as legitimately
within the congressional prerogative,
as many eminent lawyers think it will
be, it will make the corporation form

This lucid statement is well worth

the spheres of the respective states the
highest law Is the state constitution,
before which legislature-enacted stat

court that upholds the constitution
may have to nullify laws passed in vio
lation of its provisions, but the court
which seeks to nullify tne constitution
in order to uphold specific legislation
attacks the bulwarks of, our liberties
and saps the foundations of our free

Government by Law.
During the campaign Just closed In
Nebraska, involving the election of
three . Judges to sit on the supreme
bench, the various reasons urged in be
half of different candidates and the
loose discussion of the principles of the
law and the function of the courts In
dulged In by those who were inspired
by selfish purposes, could not but tend
to confuse the public mind sb to what
constitutes a government of law. The
"nonpartisan" argument and the con-
tradlctlve "bi-partisan" argument, and
the "substantial Justice" plea, coupled
with the demand for Judges of a sym
pathetic turn of mind, are all based on
a misconception of the position ac
corded the Judiciary in our distribution
of official power between the various
co-ordinate departments . of govern
While the subject is still fresh, one
document brought out by the cam
patgn, though without direct bearing
on any particular candidacy, should
not be permitted to escape attention to
Its salient features. It is a. letter ad
dressed by Francis A. Brogan, presi
dent of the Nebraska State Bar asso
ciation, to a newspaper at Lincoln, tak
ing Issue that the latter's assertion
that the demand of the hour Is for
Judges temperamentally Inclined to
favor so-called reform legislation, irre
spective of constitutional limitations.
From this letter we quote In abridge
It cannot be too often repeated that thla
la to be a government of law, not of men,
It Is not the function of Judge to modify
thla system of law, and Its application to
the concrete facta of a caae, to suit his
own viewa of what the law ought to be.
If It Is once admitted that a Judge may
decide eaaea according to hla own personal
view of what you call "aubatantlal Jua-
tlce," auch a Judge may become the moat
arbitrary Instrument of oppreaalon, and the
fact that he exercises hla oppreaslve rule In
favor of the ..numerical majority, would
not palliate his wrongdoing. If he may
decide a caae contrary to law, In fever of
an unfortunate who la injured on a rail
road train through his own carelessness,
It he may decide for the poor man because
he is poor, and against the rich man be
cause he is rich, then he may decide a
cauae for one political party, because that
la the one which haa elected him, or for
the other, because he has drawn hla sup
port from that quarter.
Aa opposed to that theory of the Judicial
function, I support the other view, that
a Judge should be the very thing you de
plorea part of the machinery of the law.
If I read aright the hlatory of tha peoples
whoae inatltutlona have flowered on thla
continent, the highest product of their ef
forta haa been the ayatem of law whereby
the Judge shall, aa near aa human frall
tttea will permit, declare each caae accord
ing to a general rule of law. That la why
Justice and liberty are upon a higher plana
In England and America than elsewhere in
the world; that la why an Aaron Burr waa
acquitted la America by the application to
hia caae of settled principles, under the
administration of a Juat Judge, and to the
lasting glory of our law; while under other
ayatema and among people awayed by tem
perament In thejr political action, a Drc
fua languished In an unmerited dungeon,
and a Ferrer, for proclaiming the Intellec
tual freedom of the people, was shot to
nlng and as resourceful as he did Boss
McKane, so that he may as well be pre
pared for a bitter battle.
An American Philosopher.
The popular mind sees in the death
of Dr. William Torrey Harris the pass
lng of a noted educator, and laments
htm as such, but here was a far greater
mind than the general public realizes.
Profound thinkers the world over had
recognized the depth of his' scholar
ship. This was not limited to the
pedagogy whose principles he had de
fined for America and whose theories
he had put Into practice during his
term of office as commissioner of edu
cation, nor to the philology which had.
made him competent to administer the
functions of editor-in-chief of the
most comprehensive and authoritative
American dictionary. Beyond his eml
nent services as an educator and an
editor, his work In the field of phili
osopby stands pre-eminent.
America has had few great philoso
phers, since the day of the earliest,
Jonathan Edwards. While one in
stantly recalls Europe's famous names
in this realm of thought, he who is
asked to name America's chief philos
opher would stop ordinarily at Emer
son. Yet it waa Emerson's work which
Harris continued, and, In a way, per
fected. The Concord School of Phil
osophy held: no more capable advocate
than Harris, and he went beyond the
Concord limitations and Interpreted
for all Americano seriously bent on
knowledge and the pursuit of truth the
minds of the great masters of the
older world. Aa an expositor of German
philosophical thought, he was one of
the clearest; he gave to America, both
through his translations and his expo
sitions, the full logic of the great
Hegel. His birth followed Hegel's
death, but in the works of Harris the
works of Hegel grew, and In the final
estimate of Harris he will be acclaimed
as the one man In America who was
chief instrument in popularizing the
German idealism, as far as philosophy
can be popularized.
Contemporaneous with George Stu
art Fullerton and William James, he
yet outranked them both. Fullerton
rendered valuable service with his crit
ical studies, but Harris surpassed htm
in extending the range of vision. James
was a brilliant advocate of keen, orig
inal views, but Harris gave a system
atic presentation from a consistent
point of view. His books will live
as among, the deepest and clearest
wells of philosophic truth.
Oar Silent Millionairei.
The prominence given constantly to
a few of our very rich men, gives rise
to the general impression that Ameri
can multi-nillllonatres may be counted
off on the fingers by any child old
enough to read, until suddenly the un
familiar name of some Croesus appears
to remind us of the .existence of a
great number of silent millionaires
who are using their vast funds for
the benefit of humanity In their own
quiet way. A week ago, the name of
John 8. Kennedy would not have at
tracted attention anywhere, and the
fact of his death stirred no breakfast-
table talk except the comment that
such an old man should fall a victim
to whooping cough. When his will
discloses that he had bequeathed $25,-
000,000 to charity, religion and educa
tion, the American instinct, of commer
cial rating is aroused, and It is sud
denly realized that it Is possible to live
even in New York City the life of a
good citizen and public benefactor
without proclaiming from the house
tops the possession of fabulous wealth.
America hss a large number of such
men as Mr. Kennedy, wno have accum
ulated great fortunes and are admlnls
terlng them in an unostentatious but
serviceable way. Of late several such
men have been deliberately dragged
forth Into the limelight in illustration
of the very fact that the country does
not fully appreciate the worth of its
silent millionaires, but they have lnva
rlably come forth from their seclusion
reluctantly, and none of the noise
made about them has been of their
doing or their desire. It la always
In good taste, even in a millionaire, to
be as inconspicuous as possible. The
worth of a modest mind is well lllus
trated by the anecdote of the strug
gllng young couple who suddenly
struck it rich in the west. "Now that
we have all this money," said the hus
band, "what shall we do?" And his
wife answered, "Jack, let's be quiet."
The case of Mr. Kennedy demonstrates
that the silent undercurrents ot the
human race are Just as forceful as the
roaring cataracts. ,
The feminine "mystic" who Is cru
sading In Nw York for a four-hour
work day for men and women alike,
and whose argument Is that the sexes
do not see enough of each other, over
looks the historic esses of wrecked
marital life resulting from husband
and wife being too constantly In each
other's company. It is even possible
that the Carlyles might have been
happy if the husband had had a Job
that kept him away from home
through the day instead of fussing
about the house all the time. The
"mystic" plea for equal suffrage and
a four-hour work day might also put
to proof again the old Baying about
mischief for Idle hands.
The local party favoring Immediate
Independence of the Philippines has

The Personal Equation in WreckiT"
Examination of the government's
latest reports on railroad accidents in
the United States shows that the old
theory that the personal equation is
responsible In nerl every case still
holds good. Some years ago bad rails
were blamed, and it was found that
the human element had neglected the
precautions against defects in speeding
the manufacture of the rails. Public
opinion and losses by the railroads re
stored the steel product to its former
The wrecks that seem to the layman
the most blameworthy are collisions,
but when run down, the list of causes
of this class of wrecks turns in every
case on the fatal personal equation.
One block signalman of years of ex
perience became confused during his
first .day on duty with a new road, and
failed to display a stop signal after
receiving a dispatch so to do. A dis
patcher's careless writing of two fig
ures and the careless misreading by a
trainman was the combination in an
other instance. Forgetfulness of
which the operator can give no expla
nation caused him to signal a clear
track after receiving a definite order
to stop a oertaln train. A conductor
misread the figures on a blurred time
table. A dispatcher with an absolutely
clear record for sixteen years mis
stated the station at which a train was
to take a siding. Another dispatcher
sent an inconsistent message which
two other operators copied and passed
on to trainmen without either noticing
the palpable discrepancy. In every
one or these cases tne initial error
might have been detected If the man
committing It had used the established
safeguards provided to check such
blunders, or if the men to whom the
errors were transmitted had had their
minds alert on their duties.

dore Roosevelt, and chances are that
the average man asked what was Mr.
Roosevelt's middle name would imme
diately hazard an Initial or admit that
ho did not know. It is but a short

No, the lack of familiarity with
personal nomenclature does not put
the Brown boys any more to the blush
than it does the average citizen who
Is successfully supporting his family
and establishing his small meed of
fame. And after all, what is there
in knowing men's full names and load
ing up the mind with the contents of
congressional' directory. The one
word Roosevelt, or the one word Taft,
is sufficient to conjure up a mental
pit tutu of the man and his personality.
If a man has sunk his identity into
that of a public Institution, it is but
natural that the citizen will recognize
only the oice, not the occupant; but
where a man stands out apart from
his great office, as In the cases of
Roosevelt or Taft, the baptismal words
do not count in establishing the meas
ure of the man.
Gaynor and the Yellows. '
It will be curious to see how far
Judge Gaynor proceeds when he as
sumes the office of mayor of New York
toward fulfilling his pre-election pledge
to go after the yellow press of Manhat
tan and eradicate what he termed "as
sassination by Blander and libel,"
which, since' the arrival of a "certain
individual," had become in his Judg
ment "a system and a trade."
This Is a self-Imposed task of the
mayor-elect. No one had asked him
for such a pledge; the people were too
busy keeping pace with the new names
being coined dally in the campaign of
personalities. But since Mr. Gaynor
deliberately announced his intention
of "teaching these libellers a lasting
lesson through the criminal law," both
the yellows whom he thus defies and
the reputable Journals who disown the
yellows, will watch tor his next step
in this direction.
Mr. Caynor will have a reform dis
trict attorney, and if any of the old
offenders continue to put themselves
within the range of prosecution be
may have a chance to make at least an
effort. But he will find his foe as cun-

Kranich & Bach
Piano, Isn't It?
105 homes in Omaha alone, have the sweet toned
Kranich if Bach pianos; 22 in Council Bluffs; 10 in
Kearney; 8 in Lincoln, and 51 are scattered out ove-the
state. WeV sold 'em all and doubt very much if ANY
purchaser in the total of 196 would WILLINGLY give
up his "Kranich V Bach."
Kranich fcf Bach are a firm of critical builders they
make EVERY part of their piano under ONE roof; un
der one watchful management, and a perfect manufac
turing harmony like this is SURE to produce something
excellent in the way of a piano.
