This "dollar diplomacy" Is simply
a method of using the power tnd
machinery of the State department to
enable American financial interests to
find Investment abroad that will at the
same time develop the government's
commercial and political powers. In
stead of being a system whereby Wall
Btreot uses the diplomatic service, It Is
precisely the reverse, the diplomatic
service using Wall street as a tool to
further the interest of the United
States In foreign countries. It Is a
practice long ago established by other
world powers, and which could no
longer be neglected by this country
with impunity either to Its official or
private enterprise abroad.
"An American Diplomat" In Har
per's Weekly, presents an Instructive
study of this question. Taking Just
one example, he shows where the
United States would suffer serious
commercial loss by refraining from
the Knox policy. That Is In the case
of the Hukuang loan for the financing
and building of the Hankow-Canton
railroad in China. Great Britain,
France and Germany had made a pre
liminary agreoment with China for the
loan. The railroad tapped the rich
Yangtze valley and opened up a great
wealth of commerce. Of course these
countries by making the loan would
reap rich advantages from China. Sec
retary Knox proikptly saw that this
could but mean converse misfortune
for the United States and therefore set
about to secure his country'8 partici
pation in the loan. ; i
After a year's negotiations Secre
tary Knox succeeded in gaining Ameri
can participation in this loan to China
and got the money from Wall street.
It is simply a case of the government
enlisting the services of vast private
resources, compensating the latter with
the opportunity of extending the chan
nels of its employment. The policy
is not only wise, but necessary if this
government is to keep ui4n
vanced methods of both diplomacy
and foreign commerce and that it most
assuredly proposes to do.
Hearst and Democracy.
Hearst's renewed courtship of Miss
Democracy is not at all surprising since
this withered spinster has no "steady"
on whose arm she may lean with any
assurance of support and since Mr.
Hearst has failed either to punish all
his political rivals or satisfy his pas
sion for power, it will not be safe to
hazard a guess on what the capricious
dame will do with the advances of her
ambitious suitor, for his zeal may
easily be matched by her's and if he
feels the lack of good company any
more than she does then he must In
deed be a lonely soul.
Mr. Hearst served notice on the
democratic party of his Intention to
use its name as his Banner when he
sent John Temple Graves to that Jef
ferson day banquet with a proffer of
reunion. Whether he means to run for
governor of New York again or stay
out and try for the presidential nomi
nation in 1912 Is the question. Of
course if he did re-enter the New York
fight he probably would never go Into
the national contest, for New York
city and state has spoken decisively
on Hearsttsm, putting him in the three
times class where the country-at-large
placed Mr. Bryan. ;
Hearst Is built on the rule-or-ruin
order and the probabilities are that if
his proffer of peace is rejected by the
democrats he will then stir up some
new mischief for them. At any rate
the party must reckon with him.
Oklahoma's Jim Crow Law.
Tho "Jim Crow" law which Okla
homa has written upon Its statute
books is probably the most radical of
all these laws restricting the rights of
negroes on railway trains, and Is evi
dently constructed upon a deep-seated
prejudice against the colored race. In
Home of the "Jim Crow" laws of the
south there seems to be some semb
lance of reason or fairness, those, for
Instance, that reserve entire cars for
t lie races, but in this Oklahoma law
no such fairness is shown. The negro
may occupy any seat in the first six
rows in the first, passenger car of any
train, which happens to be the smoker.
The train may have ten cars and
hundreds of negroes may want to ride
on it, but that is not a matter with
which the framers of this great legis
lative measure felt themselves con
cerned. The progressive negroes of that
state, such as those who have visited
in Omaha enrouto to St. Paul where
they will plead for the revocation of
this law in the Unites States circuit
court of appeals, insist that the Has
kell people did not Care place this
measure in the constitution, knowing
it would not stand, so they enacted the
law within a few days after the first
There are some 30,000 negro voters
in Oklahoma and among 'them are
some of tho most Intellectual members
of tho race. They teem to bo striying
with earnest zeal to worK out the des
tiny of their race, but they are meet
ing with stubborn resistance at the
hands of Governor Haskell who has
been under indictment of federal grand
Jury for a long time and some other
white men. These negro leaders de
clare It to be furthest from their ob
ject or denlre to consider this as a so
cial problem, or to ask for social equal
ity. "That," In the words of two of
their attorneys, "would be as repug
nant to us as to you white men. All
we ask is our rights as guaranteed
under the fourteenth and fifteenth
amendments to the federal constitu
tion." And that Is what they should have
and the white man who seeks to de
prive them of those rights 1b coming
far short of the stature of good citi
zenship and showing himself unworthy
of some of the rights that he enjoys
and Insists on enjoying to the exclus
ion of his colored neighbor.
If the negro problem, so-called, is
worked out, It must be by the co-operation
and not by the opposition of the
Let in All the Light.
Not since the Balllnger-Plnchot In
vestigation began has there been any
sound reason for refusing to admit all
the light that actually bears on the
facts of the case, and now that Secre
tary Balllnger has gone on the witness
Btand and refuted the charges of Mr.
Glavls in as strong terms as they were
made, there Is added reason for the
fullest possible Inquiry.
The nature of this case In tho first
place and the character of the men in
volved In the second oonstltute an is
sue In which the government Is vitally
Interested. That alone Is enough to
demand a full, clean sweep of the facts,
which, no doubt, all parties to the con
troversy want as much as the public
welfare exacts. It would be Impossible
to arrive at a satisfactory settlement
by any other course and Indeed it may
be impossible to attain that end, any
way. It will not be necessary to ap
pease certain outside passions that have
seized on '.Ills national controversy as
a means of making personal or private
capital. The only Interest which has
any right to be considered is that of
justice. If, therefore, the prolonging
of the investigation means a thorough
probing for and weighing of facts then
there should be no chafing at delay.
The graduation of. another class
from Creighton Law school Berves to
direct attention to the growth of
Omaha's facilities in educational lines.
Creighton university Is easily the first,
aside from the public schools. This
great institution, founded In the gener
osity of one of the pioneer citizens and
fostered since by his family, has stead
ily increased in Importance, until now
It takes high rank and is growing in
usefulness each year, 'it la not alone
active in a sectarian way, for its scien
tific branches are perhaps better pat
ronized than Its academic. Creighton
Law school and Creighton Medical col
lege are furnishing brilliant members
of two of the learned professions who
are spreading the light of knowledge,
and incidentally the fame of Omaha,
throughout the world. Omaha has
many Institutions and manufactories
in which much pride Is felt, but none
of these equal in importance the fac
tories that turn out citizens, and of
these Creighton university stands in
the front rank.
After a month of Idleness in the
coal mines work has been resumed on
the basis of practically what the men
asked, and the operators denied, at the
outset. Just why these disputes can
not be adjusted without cessation of
work and interruption of business Is
beyond comprehension. It has been
found possible in other lines, the rail
roads furnishing a most Illustrious ex
ample, and the coal miners and coal
men operators certainly ought to be
able to reach such an understanding
as would permit the occasional read
justment of wage scales and working
contracts without disturbing business
that depends on fuel supply.
Complaint comes from the Black
Hills that the grouse are so numerous
as to be a dangerous pest. Men are
still living in Omaha who can remem
ber the day when it was unsafe for a
citizen to go abroad after the middle
of July unless he carried a shotgun as
protection against the attack of fero
cious prairie chickens. Many an un
protected wayfarer has been severely
bitten by these ravenous birds.
President Taft paid his highest
tribute to Governor Hughes when he
said he was perfectly willing to have

whom the oath means all its says. And
this Is the judgment or the country at
The plan on foot of several of the
big monied men to buy the Mark
Twain home and convert it into a
museum suggests that even the dollar
is impotent to crowd all sentiment out
of the human soul. This would be a
fine tribute to pay to the memory of a
man who gave his life to the enjoy
ment of his fellowman.
The response to Colonel Bryan's
trumpet call in behalf of the initia
tive and referendum has not been such
as would encourage the thought that
Nebraska is to have an extra session
of its legislature during the planting
season. The clans do not rally as
once they did when Mr. Bryan sends
out the fiery cross.
Governor Shallenbcrger is not put
ting himself on record with entire
frankness on the extra session proposi
tion. But this Is not the first time
that Governor SbaiVnbcrger has left
his fellow cltiwns In doubt "whether
the snake that made that track was
going south or coming back."
I'p to date only seven names sug

Response to the invitations from
Omaha republicans to their fellow

promise for the future Is the Interest

Profit In National Humor.
Although Mark Twain lost one big for
tune In paying the debts of a publishing
firm In which he was Interested, he died,
It la said, worth more than a million. This
Is an eloquent proof of the demand which
the American people make for national
humor and 'the price they are willing to
pay for the best of the kind. They do not
hasten to fill in such overflowing measure
tho coffer of the writers on doleful, mor
bid or questionable subjects.
Startling; Reason tor Resigning.
That few men resign public office Is an
old saying. That fewer resign because
the pay Is too liberal for the work re
quired has never needed saying. Such
casts are so rare that they cause one to
sit up and stare. -
An assistant state's attorney In Kings
county, New York, has given up his $5,000
place because his conscience would not
permit him to take that amount for work
worth about 11,500, and because he could
not tolerate the waste and inefficiency that
characterised the office. Verily, Greater
New York is having strange experiences.
DEMOCRATIC I M POTENCY.
Present Political Situation Accu
rately Staed I'p.
Sioux City Tribune.
That democratic leaders, so-called, should
attribute recent election results in Mass
achusetts and New York to a "turning
of the people toward the democratic," as
they generally phrase it, Illustrates their In
ability to Interpret public sentiment accur
ately. The people are not hankering to
restore the democracy to power. Where
democrats have been elected the voters
have merely taken that method to Indi
cate their displeasure toward the faithless
ness of the republican party in congress.
Progressive republicans, who are more
keenly discerning of real political condi
tions than anybody else, have no hope that
the democrats, If returned to power, would
accomplish anything In the line of pro
gressive legislation, or that their triumph
would loosen the grip of privilege upon
In congress and out the democratic party
is without policy and without leadership.
It has lost hold of its ancient principles,
and has annexed no new ones In their
stead. Qtven a majority In both houses
of congress and a president In the White
House, there 1b nothing In their record to
persuade anybody that a single plank of
the last national platform would be crystal
lized into legislation. A wing of the party,
well represented In the present house and
senate, la wedded as strongly to privilege
as are Aldrlch, Hale and Cannon. The
Denver platform specfflclally pledged the
party to free lumber, and the lumber duty
In the Payne bill was saved by democratic
votes. The chairman of the Denver con

Since 1K2 the party has been drifting;
on the se. of opportunism. Betrayed fol
lowing the '92 victory by the protectionist
element within its ranks. It has been
grasping in each successive campaign at
follies, which represented neither dem
ocracy nor political sense, as the results
show. As a choice of evils some earnest
and thoughtful men have. It Is true, voted
for Mr. Bryan; but as a rule the uncertain,
erratic and drifting course of the party
has driven this class of men Into the ranks
of the opposition. Today the party has no
Issue upon which It can make an honest
appeal to the public, or upon which the
people are willing to trust It
Without policies, It Is without leader
ship. In Indiana Hendricks Is In his grave
and Tom Taggart reigns In his stend. In
Illinois John M. Palmer has gone, and
Roger Sullivan hca taken his place. In the
south Jeff Davis, "Fiddling Bob" Tavlor,
"Gum Shoe Bill" Stone and smirched Joa
Bailey rattle around In the seats once hon
ored and graced by Lamar, Oordon, Ben
Hill and John T. Morgan. In New York
the school of TUden and Cleveland has
been superseded by that of Flngy Conners
and Buss Murphy. In New England the
only democrat elected In rcent years Is
Mr. Foes, a confessed republican on every
issue save the tariff. In the middle west
and on the Pacific coast the party has
neither organization, leadership nor votes.
The democrats may elect n majority of
the lower house this full. If they do It
will be through no lntrlnulo merit of their
own, nor because the people wnnt to trust
them. It will be. because such a method Is
the only one. In the minds of a majority
of the voters, to rebuke republican be
trayal through standpatlam.
Here In the middle west tiemocrata will
cut an Insignificant figure. Thia great
valley will return Its loyal Insurgents
and Bend new Insurgents to displace Its
faithless standpatters. There no reason
why the middle west should vote the demo
cratic ticket, and It will not do si. The
only democratic recruits hereabouts will

standpatters who will vote the democratic
ticket as a means ' of gratifying their

Metropolis from Say to Say.
The opening performance of the "farewell
engagement" of Buffalo Bill and his Wild
West show was pufted off In Madison
Square Garden last Tuesday. It was a spec
tacle rivaling a gala night at Gotham's
horse show. A big crowd, stylishly dressed
people In the boxes, band playing, flags
waving and spotlights flourishing. Cow
boys and sold! en, Indians and Mexloana.
Cossacks and Arabs furnished a riot of
color In the arena. "There was a buss of
anticipation and expectancy," says the
Sun'a color artist. "Then tha big spotlight,
wavering a moment against the painted
canvas prairie at the far end, paused, then
shone clear and steady on the figure of a
straight man with long waving hair and a
wide hat. He rode his white horse slowly
through the assembled horsemen, took his
place at tholr head and swept the ground
with his hat. "Lra-ade-es and ge-e-entle-men,"
ho began. And therewith the Wild
West season In New York began. Buffalo
Bill had opened" the show.
"They say he Is not coming back after
this year, he says so himself, does Colonel
Buffalo Bill Cody. No one can deny him
the rest If he wants It, but certainly there
was no sign of the necessity for It as he
rode down the Garden last night, sitting
his horse as straight and as firm as ever,
with his hair as shining and his eyes as
keen. Nor was there any Indication of ad
vancing years In the voice that rang out so
clear that it could be heard In every part
or the Garden."
"All that glitters is not gold," and neither
do neatly tied bundles done up In Jewelers'
tissue paper always contain rare gems and
silverware, as the Rev. Canon William
Sheaf Chase, rector of Christ Episcopal
church, Bedford avenue, near Clymer
street, Brooklyn, learned to his sorrow.
Canon Chas was a greatly disappointed
clergyman when ha discovered that the
Jewelry and silverware oolleeted by mem
ber of tha vestry during the Sunday morn
ing services would not bring the $1,600 he
expected to wipe out the Indebtedness on
the rectory. In fact, the total was $1,S50
short of that sum.
Christ church Is one of the most exclusive
In Brooklyn, report the World. Canon
Chose a year ago cleared the debt on the
church property, and for some time he has
been striving to pay off a mortgage of 11.500
on the rectory. Some women of the con
gregatlon conceived the plan of offering
their excess Jewelry and silverware for that
purpose. 4. week ago Canon Chase an
nounced that a special collection would be
taken up last Sunday morning, and he
made an appeal for any Jewelry, silverware
or gems which could be turned to money.
Canon Chase had arranged to count up
the treasure yesterday afternoon, and a
manufacturing Jeweler, provided with all
the appliances necessary for testing metals,
was on hand. A number of women of the
church opened the bundles.
The costly gems and Jewelry expected did
not materialise. Instead, the packages con
tained a sad assortment of old silverware,
almost worthless. Jewelry, pewter table
ware, mutilated coins and time-worn
watches. After all the packages had been
opened and the "Junk." as It was termed,
spread out the Jeweler put a value of $150
on the lot.

Two Coney Island waiters were talking
about short changing.
"It's bad to take a raw chance," said
one, "because you can never tell what will
happen If you're caught. The best pick
ings I ever had I didn't take any chances
on. It was last summer at the Seattle ex
position. I was telling tickets at a 15-cent
attraction. Kvery time a guy shoved In
a two dollar bill for one or two tickets I
counted out carefully S or 10 cents In silver
too much. If he bought two tickets I'd

Get up and look for tho comet one of
these mornings. You will find It worth
while. Not that you will see this strango
visitor from afar, though you may. for a
Cambridge astronomer says that It can bo
seen with the naked eye. The same author
ity states that It Is now less of a sight than
comet A, 1910, which was merely a faint
streak, and by no means a terrifying por
tent. But If you don't discover Halloy's
namesake you will at least learn that dawn
has a very glorious beauty at this time of
year. Poets only do Justice to that mighty
and everlasting battle between darkness and
daylight which Is then seen. The "faint
ing" of Venus "on the bed of daffodil sky,"
the paling of the full moon, the apparent
absolute victory of Aurora, and the awak
ening of the sleeping world, loudly pro
claimed by tho robin, are better worth see
ing than fifty comets, men of science to
the contrary, notwithstanding. It's a shame
to leave this beauty wholly to milkmen,
newsboys and newspaper workers. So get
up and look for the comet, Just before

What a fatal termination a comet's (all !'
A long, long sweep of gaseous
formation tacked on to
A nub of meteor I o
Resplendence In the blue,
Diaphanous, deadly, and diabolic.
Intangible In the sky, i
it waggle around J
With never a sound.
And gets in Its work on the sky.
A comet's tail Is some
Kind of caudal appendage which sweeps
The vast sidereal space
And hands the solar system
A hard one In the face.
Like that of a brlndle cow
When Susan, at the pall,
Dreams, dreams of happy mllkina-
A cow that has no tall,
A comet without a tall would be Jay.
Wouldn't It? Wowl
Look out for Hulley's now,
It Is coming our way
At fort-'leven million miles a day,
aiiu wnen us noxious vapors
Swoop on us en masse,
Weil wonder ,
What In thunder's A
The matter with the gas.
what a wreck
There'll be- of corporations.
Of magnates and of mice.
Of meat and vegetables
And cost of living price;
Of politics and churches, ,
Of art and science and
Of everything, but graveyards-
In this once happy land.
That's not so very gay.
Is It? And still.
If we will,
We may pass In safety through It
By struggling to prevail
On the Great American Nation
Not to twist the comet's tail.
