Honesty in Pnblio Service,
Official announcement that Governor
Hughes of New York positively will
not accept a rpnomlnatlon, but has de
cided to return to private life and bis
law practice to recoup his personal for
tunes, affords a striking reminder of
the fact that under the American sys
tem of government honesty and fear
lessness In public service are bften
their own and sole reward. It trans
pires that Mr. Hughes has spent each
year not only his official salary, but
also as much from his private funds
in addition, in maintaining the execu
tive mansion along lines commensurate
with the dignity of his position. Not
being a wealthy man, he naturally de
sires to make provision for his family
during the short remaining term when
his earning capacity Is at its height.
Personal necessities, therefore, take
from the public service a man in whom
the people have such confidence that
without regard to political faith they
desire to see him continue in office.
Such cases as that of Mr. Hughes
illuminate the, administration of af
fairs In this country against the oc
casional charge that public office is a
private graft. Governor Hughes has
been In the east what Governor john-
son was in the west, a type of sterling,
though rugged, honesty,- whose per
sonal example in sacrificing some of
the best of his years and energies to
the people's canse cannot but stimu
late the faith of the older generations
and the ambition of the younger in
the progress and permanency of the
republican form of government in this
union of states.
The Mother Country.
Commercial development of our
country has had much to do with the
lessening, if not the elimination,, of old
hostilities. A generation or two back
every American schoolboy studying
history felt ltja part of his nature to
voice a violent dislike' against Great
Britain, an attitude in which his elders
rather encouraged - him. . But of late
years so general has become the un
derstanding of international trade re
lations that a more liberal national
spirit toward our mother ofountry -has
been defined, and without developing
any entangling political alliance we
have cemented relations along interde
pendent business lines that have en
abled us to strengthen our position be
fore the world.
This is manifested In a' timely way
by President Taft in his interpretation
of his latest tariff order. The United
Kingdom is shown to be by far our
best market, and continuation of such
satisfactory conditions is to be com
mended on both sides of the water,
from Belflshly economic motives.
Britain needs our products, and we are
glad of her custom. This commercial
prestige gives us a peculiarly ad
vantageous leverage in treating with
France, Canada and Germany, but
even without considering them we
have In the case of the mother coun

Aviators in Wall Street.
Recent events among some of the
high-flying experimenters in the stock
exchange, resulting, as' In the case of
the aviators at large. In some breakage
through defects in the motive power
or weaknesses of construction, suggest
that the board of governors has not

stantial foundation, and they certainly
added nothing to public confidence In
Wall street methods. Such unwar
ranted Juggling calls for stricter action
than the governors have thus far
taken, or they may be confronted by

South American Possibilities. ;
While the revolution in Uruguay
may turn out to be purely a local af
fair, still the peculiar situation of this,
the smallest of the South American re
publics, makes plausible , the report
that Argentina is fostering the Insur
rection. Uruguay has given the south
ern continent aa much trouble as some
of the lesser countries .of Central
America have given the United States
and Mexico, and she has been for
nearly three centuries a shuttlecock
between the Interests now. represented
under the respective governments of
Brasll and ' Argentina. With Argen
tina's rapidly growing Importance in
the international .commercial world,
she Is naturally covetous of her little
neighbor's territory across the bay,
with its vast grating area for the herds
she desires to seW to European mar
kets and with her shipping front along
the Rio de la Plata.
Brasll, a country which territorially
rivals the United States in size, will
hardly rest under any attempt to
strengthen the vigor of Argentina, Jier
progressive rival for the domination of
South America, but it Is certain that
if Argentina can utilize the present re
bellion to add Uruguay to her domin
ion she will do It. For Argentina ' to
possess the port of Montevideo as well
as' Buenos Ayrea would give her abso
lute command of a harbor that would
rival that of Rio de Janeiro, and for
Brasll to step In and control Monte
video would place Buenos Ayres at a
tremendous disadvantage. It will be
singular if the Uruguay situation does
not develop a warfare of wits between
the upper and the nether republics, and
between the two Uruguay's Inde
pendence may be ground to extinction.
What It's All About.
During the last year of the Roosevelt
administration a terrific outcry was
raised by the democrats in congress,
assisted by some republicans, over the
alleged lawless usurpation of the pres
ident In the Brownsville affair. Reso
lutions galore assailing Mr. Roosevelt
and denouncing his action were intro
duced and a congressional committee
of inquiry set in motion to, ascertain
and report upon the facts. The pur
pose of his enemies in forcing congres
sional participation in the Brownsville
rumpus was to discredit President
Roosevelt and to put an obstacle in the
way of his renomlnatlon, which they
then feared might be Imminent. But
when the president effaced himself as
a presidential possibility Brownsville
very quickly became a dim memory.
' Whether or not there ia any fire be
hind the smoke, the animus of the at
tacks aimed at President Taft, al
though hitting at Secretary Ballinger,
la plainly of the Btme character. The
purpose of the democrats Is to discredit
the republican president and, if possi
ble, to cripple his administration by
loading it down with a democratic
house during the second half of his
term. The democrats are naturally
hot to get something on Mr. Ballinger
and nu8 indirectly besmirch tile presi
dent, and in this effort they have, the
conscious or unconscious assistance of
a few republicans. s
What the democrats would like is to
get an investigating committee on
which they would have, at least, one
or two members who could be de
pended on to bring in a minority report
Irrespective of the evidence. Demo
crats want to keep . this controversy
open for campaign purpose only, and
no matter what the findings may be,
will try to exaggerate them so far as
they are adverse to Secretary Ballinger
and will cry "whitewash" bo far as
they exonorate him.
It will be a good idea for the un
prejudiced spectator to get the layout
of the ground clearly In view while the
preliminaries are in progress
Talking down at Washington, Gov
ernor Shallenberger declares -that he
will call the legislature in extra session
whenever a petition signed by a ma
jority of the members' of the legisla
ture, embodying a pledge to enact an
Initiative and referendum bill, reaches
him. The govefnorLl'.ould; like.'5 to
throw the responsibility , for. convening
the legislature upon. the law-makers,
yet that is not where the responsibility
la placed by the constitution. It is up
to the governor every time to decide
whether an emergency exists demand
ing a special session, and a petition
signed by a majority, or even by all, of
the members of the legislature does
not make the contemplated emergency.
The readiness of the American to
seize on transitory phases for conspicu
ous recognition of a man Is exemplified
in the case .of John Farson, who has
just died in Chicago. Most people ac
quainted with him through the news
papers knew him only as the good
natured wearer of brilliant garments,
and his red neckties were famous
across the continent.- Yet he was one
of the most influential of' western
bankers, an enthusiast In, the develop
ment of great industrial enterprises
and his deeds as a philanthropist bad
made thousands happy. Sometimes a
man uses these personal Idiosyncrasies
to hide his real nature and qualities.
Does not Dr. Spltzka, medical col
lege brain specialist, announcing
his belief in "justifiable suicide," fear
he will have laid at his door such a
chain of events as followed Rev. Mr.
Talmage's discussion, "Is suicide a
sin?" Dr. Spltzka even goes further
and urges that there are occasions
where "tactful murder" Is to be con
doned. Such opinions may be a sign
of advanced thought, but there is grave
danger in turning them loose upon the
public, whose, thought Is not so far ad

AN HISTORIC PACT.
Sherman and the
Thirty Year Ago.
A writer In the New York Evening Post,
who algna himself ."Northern Unionist,"
offers this to the groups of camp-followers
and coffee-coolers, who have lately heard
of the war of sections and are beginning
to get mad enough almost to' fight: "It
strikes my commonplace Imagination that
an effectual test of the propriety of a
statue to General Lee at th capltol Is to
be found In the question: 'What would
Grant and Sherman have thought of It?
and adds, "Could any modern Grand Army
of the Republic commander answer that
frankly and honestly and leave himself
enough ammunition to damage th plan?"
In 1877, when the Hayes-Tilden contest
was decided In' favor of Hayes, General
W. T. Sherman "was so insistent that Gen
eral Joseph E. Johnston should be secretary
of war In the new cabinet, that Mr. Hayes
consented. It was proposed to the nearest
friends of General Johnston, who stated
that if the offer TVere made, General John
ston would decline It. General Sherman
expressed himself- aa greatly dfciappolnted.
Subsequently, Judfre Key, a confederate
soldier and 'on original secessionist, was

not think, however, that the Isurgent move

Handicap of a Popular Father.
Lyons Mirror: "I told you so." Yea, The
Mirror said Vic Rosewater was the boss of
the republican party In Nebraska. Of
course, we don't blame the young man
for his ambitious quest for power and
fame. We only blame the fool suckers who
will ba led around by the nose without
even a protest and see the leadership of
a great party handed down to a little
squirt the son of bis father. Vlo has lots
of ability and la a smart lad, but why
should old men who have 'grown gray In
the service of the republican party be
brushed aside Just because he happened to
have a popular father. Is this American
In principle or monarchical?
Why Shonld Ther "Hollerf"
Tekamah Journal: 'This "holler" that
some of the country press are making, rela
tive to Vic Rosewater being termed the
boss of the republican party In Nebraaka
Is Just a whole lot silly. Rosewater la th
representative of the party upon the na
tional republican committee and a better
one we.-don't think could be selected. He
Is one of the forces In Nebraska politics,
but that Is far from being "Boss." He la
at the head of the most powerful expon
ent of republicanism In the state. We don't
think, as he does, along some lines;
neither do hundreds of other republicans
In the state. He may have ambitions, too,
politically, but that Is no discredit to a
man. It Is his right to be treated fairly
and the way some of the small country
papers yap at him savors; very much of

ONLY A DREAM.

That morn I passed a hair store, wher
