Control of the TelfgTph.
In Its apparent mastTjr of the) thief
telegraph 6urvlc of the country,; th
telephone affords .a striking exafaple
of the stripling overtaking the giant.
The Western Union haa been In exist
ence alnre 1856, while long-distance
telephoning haa been possible only
since 1885, which Is the date of the
organization of the American com
pany now in control of the Gould lines.
Of late years the telegraph haa suf
fered loss of revenuea from the apeclflc.
curtailment of certain classea of busi
ness and from the general inroads
made by the telephone and the wire
less. The public Is coming to depend
less and less upon the telegraph, and
with the rapid growth of the telephone
some such merger as that "now an
nounced was almost inevitable.
If the combination is the beginning
of a monopoly, the public will feel
that it has a right to be guaranteed
better service and no Increase of rates.
It is possible that an absolute monop
oly may be prevented temporarily
through the continued maintenance of
the Postal as a separate company, In
which case the Postal as a matter of
self-preservation will be tempted to
absorb the Independent telephone lines
to maintain efficient rivalry of the
American-Western Union. If develop
ments show the American also acqulr
lng control of the Postal and the Inde
pendents, then the original Bell Inter
ests will have all the existing channels
of wire communication, which only the
successful commercial operation of the
long-promised wireless would be likely
The situation naturally brings up
again the subject of the extension of
the postofflce to Include telegraphic
communication. Argument In favor
of making the transmission of these
messages a part of the postal system
Is not without sound basis. If private
capital can undertake to merge such
vast and essential Interests, it would

tablishing direct government operation
might soon have to be reckoned.

Official announcement by Secretary
Knox that the recent Chinese-Japanese

American rights there and no violation
of the open-door policy to which our
government stands committed will be
received with satisfaction by the pub
lic as confirmatory of Japanese assur
ances of good faith. Mr. Knox and
his associates in the State department
seem to have conducted a calm, but
exhaustive, search into all the possibil
ities of the situation. The conclusion
of the secretary that there Is no occa
sion for questioning the Chinese
treaty may be regarded as setting at
rest all the wild rumors about en
croachments of the Japanese beyond
the limits recognized by the United
At the same time, the fact that Mr.
Knox has made such searching Inquiry
as is reflected In his decision may be
taken by Japan as notice duly served
that we will tolerate no invasion of
what we consider our right to equal
rank with all other nations in any
treaty arrangements made with China.

The Cabinet at Work.
It cannot but be reassuring to an
order-loving people to witness the
cabinet once more at work with the
president, resuming close co-operation
with him In the consideration of press
lng public matters. A harmonious and
active cabinet Is indicative of a sue
cessful administration. Back In Lin
coin's troublous times one of the worst
evils he had to contend with was the
Insubordination and petty personal
hostility among his advisers, so that
during , the darkest daya cabinet ses

was a case of the "house divided

indefatigable energy saved it at times

couraging beginning of what promises
to be a busy season at the White
House. The energy and effectiveness
with which the cabinet enters with the
president upon the winter's work are
calculated, to inspire public confidence
In the outcome.

The Horticultural Show.
The enterprising people of our sister
city of Council Bluffs deserve congrat
ulatlons on the horticultural show
which they have brought to such high
culmination. The exposition of hor
ticultural products which has been
made would do credit to management
and exhibitors anywhere.
The promoters of the horticultural
show have been especially favored this
year by the unusually good conditions
of orchard crops In most sections of
the country, and particularly in the
nearby sections from which the greater
number of exhibits are drawn. In tak
ing full advantage of these unusual
opportunities thus offered the manage
ment has demonstrated that It Is wide
awake and alert.
It is to Omaha's interest that this
effort of Council Bluffs in producing
a big horticultural show should have
every encouragement and help to make
it a signal success.
Revival of the Canteen.
Another lesson of the abolition of
the canteen from the army Is indicated
In the official report of growing de
sertions from the service. It becomes
steadily more evident that to maintain
the army with a minimum of disaffec
tion in the ranks the meu must not
be deprived utterly of such social re
laxation as is afforded in abundance
to those in other fields of usefulness.
The canteen was the, soldier's club,
and, deprived of It, he betakes him
self to outside resorts for his pleas
ures, or else cultivates such. a spirit
of insubordination that ends too often
In desertion. . '
It will not be surprising, iu view of
the statistics Just made public, if a
strong effort is not made at the com
ing session of congress to restore the
canteen. There will, however, be
strong opposition and do relaxation of
It. Nearly every army officer of im
portance favors the canteen as a prac
tical measure, but the strength of the
sentimental side of the question must
not be underestimated.
The Ignominy of Ig.
The great Ig Dunn, the same Ig who
a little more than a year ago was cull
lng the clouds at Denver with great
gobs of oratory in nomination of the
peerless Bryan, is ia the depths of ig'
Far be it from us to withhold the
deep sympathy which he deserves
That a court made up of democrats and
republicans alike should unanimously
adjudge him guilty of contempt for his
deliberately Insulting brief and enter
an order for indefinite disbarment
from practice proves that there is no
partisanship in it, but merely an effort
on the part of the court to bring Ig to
a realization of the duties and respon
slblllties of his profession, of which he
seems to be entirely Ignorant.
It goes without saying that Ig would
like to pose as a martyr in the cause
of freedom, but unfortunately the
court has taken away from him that
ground by giving him full opportunity
to retract and apologize, and his
haughty refusal to do so seems to be
regarded as a second offense.
Some people are too small to make
mistakes, while others are big enough
to see their errors and to try to set
themselves straight. Ig apparently
belongs to neither class.
The saving clause of his sentence of
indefinite disbarment, however, lies In
leaving an open door for Ig to get con
trition. It rests entirely with him to
raise the embargo of his exile. AH he
has to do Is to take It back and apolo
gize. it is tor ig, nimseir, to say
whether his Ignominy shall be of long
or short duration.
The Budget Crisis in England.
The forecast Is made that the House
of Lords will reject the. budget and
that King Edward's attempt to estab
lish a compromise as the way out of a
political impasse will have been un
availing. The attitude of the lords is
bound to be denounced as insufferable
arrogance by the Commons, who have
asserted exclusive right to control tax
ation and supplies since the days of
King John, and the claim of the lords
to veto power over revenue bills will
be thrown into an election, and in this
the lords ar taking a desperate
chance, for conditions were never more
favorable for a liberal' victory.
Rejection t the budget by the lords
ts based oa its beast of ancient privi
leges. The budget alms to revolution
ize the land schedule by throwing into
the public treasury much of the un
earned Increment of the vast estates
held by the aristocracy, which would
tend ultimately to cause a reversion of
the land to the people. Out of the ex
isting parliamentary deadlock will
come a campaign weltering in parti
sanship, and the battle at the hustings
over the budget will focus all the
strength of socialism that, has been
fomenting in every center of unrest.

TIP TAKKIIS AS JIRORS
Significant Views of a Chlcaa-a Jory
The opinion of William A. Amberg, a
Chicago Jury commissioner, Is that por
ters, waiters, and pabmen who live by tak
ing tips are unfit for jury service.
While this may: be resented by the tip
takers it does not seem unreasonable
Under the law a man is entitled to a trial
before a Jury of his "peers." In America
the man who carries a hod Is the peer of
the man who writes a history insofar as
difference In occupation affects cltisenship.
And most persons would as soon trust
their lives, liberties,- or property Involved
In litigation to twelve intelligent laborers
aa to twelve men from any other walk
In life. But the man who Uvea by taking
tlpa is one whose labor ia without any
sort of dignity. In America he is a living
contradiction of the political and social
doctrine of equality. He voluntarily low
ers himself beneath the level of the wage
earner by seeking alma. It ia probably
because his occupation, however remunera
tive, is hateful and humiliating to him that
the American waiter Is a "teches" indi
vidual with a chip upon his shoulder, ex
pecting insult and taking offense easily.
There is all of the difference In the world
between the attitude of the family ser
vant who receives with thanks a gratuity
voluntarily given for some special service,
and that of the Individual who gets his
living by assessing upon generosity or
vanity, or moral cowardice, tips for which
no special Hervice is neceHgurily rendered.
A lowered moral tone Is the inevitable ef
fect of a lack of standing due to engaging
voluntarily in an occupation that la not
kespecled by tho public.
Of course the proprietor of the establish
ment who prefers for his employes to be
paid by public contribution is the real tip
taker, but society, however unjustly, ex
acts the penalty of obloquy from the in
dividual who is obviously, and personally,
engaged in an a interdicted occuputlon,
rather than to trace the origin of the evil
to its source and fix the responsibility
where it properly belongs.

proposition was a Joke In Tlatte county.

partisanship before election and at the polls

standpoint. Another paramount ls!iie gone

Hastings Tribune: The fact that the
recent election returns show clearly that
Nebraska Is at heart a republican stat
makes the prospects for a republican vic
tory next fall almost certain providing
the party does not become split up the
back over the county option Issue.
Seward Blade: Contrary to the deslrea
and efforts of the democratic managers.
Judge Pean is not the low man on their
ticket for supreme Judge. It was generally
understood that efforts would be njade to
pull Sullivan and Good through and let
Judge Dean hustle for himself. The result
Is no doubt disappointing to the workers
for his associates on tho ticket. Served
Stanton Register: The democrats will
not build any hopes on getting votes In
Omaha next year. When they see that
place giving the republicans 2,000 majority
as compared with 3,500 the other way last
fall they know that do dependance can be
placed on that city. Democracy will go
Into the flsht next year with a dean cut
platform and get votes enough up state to
win In spite of Omaha.
Plattsmouth News: The "nonpartisan"
Idea was conceived for a purpose and
failed. It It now up to the opposition to
think up something new for next year.
They will have to do It. This cornea of
patronizing the bargain counters for is
sues. They are all rlnht Just as long as
they are new. But they don't last. We
would suggest for the next Issue for the
opposition, "We are tired and hungry."
Schuyler Free Lance: The nonpartisan
law passed by the late lamented demo
cratic legislature possibly had some good
sentiment In It, but it was objectionable.
And the so-called nonpartisan talk of the
democratic press and politicians in the
late campaign waa on the fake order. A
party that would nominate a full and com
plete set of candidates and present such
timber as Judge Dean was hardly in con
sistent position to talk nonpartisanlsm.
St. Paul Republican: The late election
gave the fact emphasis that Nebraska Is a
republican state. From almost every sec
tion there comes republican majorities, and
this, too, in a light year, when tBe votes
would naturally follow the administration,
If It ever did. This means that all the
republicans need do next year to win this
state and keep it is to nominate a good
candidate for governor and let the record
of the two parties in management of state
affairs speak for Itself.
Pleroe Call: Say, that "nonpartisan"
talk of the democrats worked fine In this
county, didn't It? For supreme Judge Dean
received 187 majority, Good 100 And Sullivan
182. Say. you republicans who were led
to vote for Sullivan, or Good, or Dean by
that nonpartisan cry. did yeu notice any
majorities in this county for Barnes, Faw
cett or Sedgwick? Did any one of thn
republican Judges run ahead of thela
ticket, as would have been the case had
the democrats practiced what they
preached regarding a nonpartisan judi
ciary? No, It was another democratic trick
to catch republican votes the old "heads I
win, talis you lose"' game repeated. CM
wise. Mr. Republican: get wise.
Grand Island Independent: Colonel
Edgar Howard of the Columbus Telegram,
a man so close up to the democrafic cen
tral committee as to warrant tho state
ment that he was a part of It, regards the
recent election as showing that there was
no great demand for a "nonpartisan" su
preme court, and again as demonstrating
the effectiveness of the democratic state
central committee. Well, that's about it
Some voters may have been beguied Into
voting for partisan candidates as non
partisan Judges, but not many of them. It
this or any other Btate ever secures an
entirely nonpartisan supreme court or dis
trict bench it will, first of all, have to be
done at some other time than when a
partisan election la held. And It is not al
together Improbable that the human nature
that gets the profession of Jurisprudence
will first have to be made of a new and
Improved sort of clay.
West Point Republican: Consistency Is
something that makes the urbane Chester
field of the Columbus Telegram look foolish
when he don't put It In. With the laud
able desire to adorn a tale and point a
moral over the result of the recent election,
he asserts, that the sniullness of the le-
publican majority Is due to the fact of Its
having been a nonpartisan election. In the
next lines he alleges that the republican
slump muBt be attributed to the defection
of protfrensive republican voters In the
rural districts. Having delivered himself
In statesmanlike fashion of these divergent
pronunclamentoes, It occurred to htm that
he had forgotten to make obeisance and
pay homage to the great letter-writing
trinity at the head of the democratic ship
of state, Byrnes, Guenther and Matthews.
And fu, without regard to former assign
ment of causes and with a suavity that
would have put some of the Immortals to
flight and to shame, he valaama profoundly
and ascribes to that great triumvirate all
the credit and glory achieved by the demo
crats. Individually and collectively, and
pronounces their work to be but little
shgrt of the miraculous. Cheerful con
sistency, isn't It?
