Tariff Peace with Canada.
The announcement comes from
Washington to a well pleaaod public
that tariff troubles with Canada are
not to be. Both the Dominion gov
ernment and our own have preferred
to avoid a clah of this kind, for the
maximum rate of the Payne tariff
would work hardship for Canada and
retaliation on the part of Canada
would work a hardship for the people
of the United States. The time limit
for the settlement was April 1, and
unless the settlement had been ef
fected before that date the "pinch"
rate would have gone into effect for a
time at least.
Neither people and neither govern
ment wanted the maximum tariff and
the difficulty seemed only a matter of
understanding the situation properly.
Yet the commission sent to Ottawa did
not make much progress and returned
to Washington with unsatisfactory re
sults. Canada was apparently ob
durate and refused to come to any
agreement, and it was not until Presi
dent Taft took up the negotiations
that condition began to look brighter.
As a result of his personal attention
an agreement has been reached and
commercial strife between the two
countries has been successfully
This adjustment of the tariff dif
ferences is another triumph for Presi
dent Taft, His farseelng judgment
smoothed out difficulties when other
individuals failed, and, further, when
it appeared that a breach was inevi
table. Canada and the United States
are separated only by an imaginary
line, recognized on maps and by the
officials of the two government. At
the same time pleasant and profitable
trade relations bad developed which
the two countries could not well af
ford to sacrifice to any such strife as
threatened for several weeks.
Canada is growing with wonderful
rapidity. Great reaches of territory
to the north and west , are being
opened up to agriculture by immi
grants schooled on American farms.
With a growing country, increasing
rapidly in wealth, and peopled with
our own relatives to deal with, the
United States could well afford to use
all the diplomacy ' at command , to
maintain mutually , satisfactory com
mercial and industrial intercourse.
Sir. Ernest H. Shackelton. "
The impression given the banquet
ers in New York City recently by the
appearance, side by side, of two renowned-
polar explorers whose re
search and expeditions have taken
them to the opposite ends of . the
earth will not soon be forgotten. Com
mander Robert E. Peary, whose untir
ing effort landed him at the most
northerly point , on th globe, an
American, Introduced to the banquet
ers Sir Ernest H. Shackelton, an Eng
lishman, who has penetrated into the
Antarctic, sone to within ninety-seven
miles of the most southerly point.
Sir Ernest on his return from his
southern expedition immediately laid
his records,, data ' and diary before
English scientists, and after a satis
factory inspection had been made he
immediately became the undisputed
hero of the nation. He plans to con
tinue his exploration in the south and
hopes this time to be able to reach
the goal of his ambition. He is not
discouraged by the incompleteness of
his former attempt and expects to
profit by previous mistakes and mis
This next expedition will be post
poned for several months. Captain
Scott is to sail for the south on a slm
ilar expedition in the near future and
Sir Ernest does not wish to rival his
efforts. But when sufficient funds are
available for the purpose he will coast
along the South Indian ocean for the
further scientific exploration of
Antarctica," in order to ascertain
some of the possibilities of that huge
continent. Later he will turn south
ward directly toward the pole.
By his behavior Sir Ernest Shackel
ton haa commanded universal admira
tion and his attitude toward his com
petltors for south polar honors is
chlvalrio - and generous. He is an
Anglo-Saxon type and has the dogged
determination needed to attain sue
cess In this gigantic undertaking. It
is no easy task to penetrate into
frozen tone for even a short distance,
and Sir Ernest not only deserves
honor for what he has done, but de
serves to have his next polar expert!
tion crowned with success.
The little African republic of Li
beria, in which the United States has
taken a peculiar interest for many

against the interior savages who

A short time ago when the Liberian
government applied to Secretary Root
to help straighten out its affairs the
statement was made that the United
States could not give much assistance.
But a commtaalon of Americans was
sent to Monrovia by President Roose
velt to Investigate, and now Secretary
Knox has thought proper to take a

assist directly it has the alternative
of allowing the British and French
authorities in adjoining states to help

China and Morocco, with the strict

A lot of people in Omaha are In
dulging in wild dreams as to what
population the coming census will
credit Omaha. Omaha has unques
tionably enjoyed a substantial and
gratifying growth since the last cen
sus enumeration, and win cenainiy
show up well In the forthcoming cen
sus by comparison. Omaha wants to
be accorded all the population it pos
sesses, but it does not want to be the
victim again of senseless padding, as
it was in the census of 1890. The 1890
census takers marea omana up to
140,000, speculating on futures and
discounting what It was hoped the
census ten years later would mane
good. The 1900 census, however, cut
us down to 102,655, .with the conse
quence that to all not familiar with
the facts, it looked as If Omaha had
actually suffered a shrinkage of 80
per cent, when every one knows that
Omaha has steadily grown and that
thero were more people here in 1900
than ever before.
While it Is not of general Informa
tion, the census bureau a few years
ago made a correction of the 1890
figure for Omaha, in order to have a
proper basis for comparison and for
per capita computation by taking the
figures for 1880 and 1900 to be cor
rect and securing a mean between
them on the assumption that the rate
of population growth during that time
had been really uniform. The correct
figure for 1890 population was thus
estimated to be 66,636, which in all
probability is very near the mark. The
census bureau naa maae a similar
computation of estimated population
for subsequent years, the last being
for the year 1905, listing Omaha with
a population of 120,565.
Another point to be borne in mind
In connection with the coming census
is that Omaha is one of the few cities
of Its class whose territorial limits
have remained unchanged for two
decades. The geographical boundaries
of Omaha are the same now that they
were in 1890, whereas a large number
of cities took in new territory ten
years ago, and quite a few will have
taken in new territory since then.
Whatever population Omaha shows up
will be the actual and natural incre
ment and not due to any wholesale
annexation, much as we would have
been willing to assimilate some of 'our
adjacent suburbs. ' Omaha cannot be
represented In the census as the pop
ulation center which it really is, be
cause all the people who do business
here and make up the community are
not living within the city limits.
Without waiting for the census
takers, however, it is safe to assert
that Omaha has added more people to
Its population in the last ten years
than in any previous ten-year period,
and ought this time to pass. In fact,
the padded fiction with which we were
Inflicted twenty years ago.
'United States Model for Nations."
Americans very properly feel a
sense of satisfaction over the remark
recently made by King Frederick of
Denmark, to the American minister,
Mr. Egan "The United States la a
model for all nations." Minister Egan
and his family were recently at home
on a visit and the statement was made
by his majesty during an audience
given Mr. Egan immediately following
his return to the Danish capital.
King Frederick has for some time
taken a lively Interest in American at
fairs and has made occasional Inquiry
regarding special conditions which
prevail here. Many Danes now live
In America, having come here to settle
and to become citizens. They send
back glowing accounts of prosperous
conditions and have influenced the
adoption in Denmark of our most mod
ern methods of industry and much of
our machinery. Our commerce, our
inventions and our spirit of hustle and
move which have been in evidence in
all parts of the globe are well known
and admired there, and King Freder
Ick, appreciating their value, pays the
United States a great compliment.
While our country may be a model
for all nations, there are still many
things we can learn from the steady
and reliable old nations of Europe,
and Denmark is by no means the least
of these. Americans can learn much
from the Daves In the cultivation of
the soil so as to make it all valuable
and in keeping agricultural pursuits
popular with the people. , Denmark Is
strictly an agricultural nation and in
that respect is a good deal of a model
in Itself. We Americans can only say
in return that we are glad to be of
service to other peoples and we shall
feel free to draw upon their experience
for inspiration and guidance.
Among the natural resources of Ne
braska listed for conservation are the
sand hills, which, we are assured, will
be found to be productive. The in
scrlptlon, "Great American Desert,'
which once ornamented our school
geography maps covering practically
all the territory now comprised within
the limits of Nebraska, was long ago
proved a fiction.

A batch of reports from the pure foorf
and drug bureau of the Department of
Agriculture turns some light on the activi
ties of the government In enforcing the
law and the manner In which makers and
dealers cheat and Imperil tha lives of con
sumers. Short weight, adulteration, doped
food, poison and false labeling were some
of tha means employed. In all the con
victions secured tha penalty ranged from
snail fines to confiscation or destruction
of the goods. A shipment of preserves from
Houston, Tex., each Jar, according to the
label, containing "one full pound," had but
fourteen ounces and cost the shippers the
goods. A Connecticut firm paid a fine of
$100 for misbranding packages of camphor
and a Ilka sum was extracted from the
treasury of a Georgia summer drink fao
tory which neglected to mention on tha
label that the dope carried cocaine. A
Washington patent medicine factory put out
a nerve tonlo warranted to cure any old
nerve, "mentioned that It "contains no
poison," though found to have arsenlo and
strychnine. Tha goods were condemned
and destroyed. A like fata met "fermented
apple cider vinegar" from Toledo, O., mads
of acetic acid, artificially colored.
The most Imposing literary effort in label
production encountered by the authorities
enclosed bottles of "Mother's Friend," an
alleged medicine compounded at Atlanta,
Oa., and warranted to cure all the Ills of
womankind. Tha mixture was found to
contain "an oil and a small quantity of
soisp. The goods were condemned and tha
firm warned to tell the truth on the label.
"Cane and maple syrup" from Denver had

Invisible and the makers were Induced by
a fine of $20 and costs to make the print

St Louis firm, consisting chiefly of ground
fruit stones and popper shells, brought a
fine of $00. A dozen Instances of adul
terated milk and ice cream prosecuted In
the District of Columbia netted fines rang
ing from $10 to $25. Boston sent a consign
ment of "desslcated eggs" paddled with
formaldehyde, to New York, and were
found so strong on reaching tha latter
port that they were destroyed. The goods
were headed for a bake shop. Doped cure
alls, frightened Into obscurity two years
ago, appear In the limelight aa deadly and
braten as aver. Failure to mention in the
label that the goods contain cocaine, the
correct percentage of alcohol and tha
dangerous acetanilld, cost the makers or
dealers from $25 to $90 each. Penalties in
most cases of first offenders are moder
ate, but should the makers or dealers be
called to account a second time they will
get all that the law allows, with board

The autograph fad has always been mani

Is not enough for the faddist to send in his
book to Speaker Cannon or Vice President

to ask for "ghost" or "skeleton" signa

"Say, you," cried a real regular repub
lican, pointing an accusing finger at a
genuine, untamed democrat on the floor of
the house on the historic Saturday after
noon Just after the excitement was all
over. "I know what's the matter. I know
why we have been beating each other to
death today. I know why we have as
saulted the speaker. I know why there's
blood on the moon. It's so simple I wonder
why somebody didn't think of It before."
"Tell me, little one," demanded the demo
crat, cupping his hand behind his ear and
feigning acute attention.
"Why," gurgled the real regular republi
can, "this Is William Jennings' birthday."
"Discovered," bawled the genuine, un
tamed, slapping his forehead In well simu
lated agony. And then, laughing like a
couple of kldB, they locked arras and
chased off in search of a drink.

"If senators really need the services of a
rubber and a scrubber," says the Washing
ton Post, "if they would be sweeter and
cleaner for these ministrations, they should
not be Intimidated by the cry of Insurgents
and economists. There Is nothing wrong In
having a masseur, unless he rubs too hard
.or rubs the fur the wrong way. Certainly
the senate cannot be accused of grafting In
favor of any particular clique, for It must
be assumed that no senator would need
the services of a scrubber more than an
other. The Insurgents cannot pretend that
they are so Immaculate as never to need a
scrub, nor should they charge that the
regulars or the democrats are beyond the
redemption of a vigorous scrubber.
"Of course, there must ba an honest ef
fort to cut down expenses by $300,000,000,
and by dispensing with a masseur a start
will be made. Still, there is a lingering
doubt somehow, that the move is advis
able. If cleanliness is next to godliness
it is certainly preferable to penurjousness.
The country might criticise senators if It
should get the Idea that they were sy

But tha senate could not indulge In ex
cessive luxury on the proposed expenditure

us that senators should have taken the
