The Preiident'i Waterway Policy.
The president hits the nail squarely
on the head in his suggestions to con
grees as to future rivers and harbors
appropriation. He has affixed his Big
nature to the bill setting aside $52,
000,000 for a miscellaneous lot of
waterway improvements, which has
been characterized "piecemeal" legis
lation, but he accompanied his ap
proval with a statement expressing
disfavor with this method of legisla
tton which combines such a variety of
enterprises over such a wide section
of country. He does not believe the
appropriation is exorbitant for the
work to be done, but rather that too
much has been undertaken to bring
any of it to the successful completion
It should reach. He suggests, there
fore, that in the future congress should
submit to a commission of experts the
matter of determining what projects
should be prosecuted and appropriate
the mortey necessary to finish them In
the proper manner
The president is undoubtedly cor
rect In assuming that this piecemeal
system will lead to a continuation of
demands for money to finish these va
rloua projects, which are to run along
for ten to twenty years before com
pleted. They are very likely to In
volve waste and unnecessarily heavier
expenditures of money than If the
more comprehensive system which he
has all along favored and which he
now proposes were followed. To de
termine definitely Just what Is to be
done and to set about doing that and
persist in the work until it is speedily
concluded would mean much more for
waterway improvement than thlB sys
tem of a little here and a little there
can possibly mean
A Law that Makei Hew Homes.
A law enacted by the Sixty-first con
gress which is of the utmost Import
ance to the people of this entire coun
try 1b that providing for the agricul
tural entry of the surface of coal land,
while reserving all mineral rights to
the government. Under Its provisions
60.000.000 acres of land will be
thrown open to settlement, which
means thousands of new homes In the
great west and a tremendous lifting
of pressure from certain congested
areas of population. This land is
chiefly in Montana and the far north
west, where the climate and soil are
adapted to robust life and good crops
of grain and fruit, conditions that In
vite most appeallngly the man with
energy and small means who Is look
ing for a chance to establish a home
and acquire a competency.
This is one of the conservation laws
which the president urged upon con
gress and one whose benefits it is im
possible to measure or estimate. Ap
parent upon its face, however, is that
fact of Its far-reaching advantages
which will be available . very . soon.
This land is not only fertile for agri
cultural purposes, but is believed to be
prolific of mineral wealth, chiefly coal,
and it is much more desirable for coal
production than the coal land of
Alaska because of its proximity to the
market and the comparative cost of
production. Nor will the present set
tlement and farming of the land in any
way hinder its exploitation when the
time comes for coal; rather it will
facilitate it, for it will tend toward a
general settlement of the country and
the establishment of new towns or
communities and shipping points.
This act and the one clearly defining
the power of the president to with
hold from settlement any land for the
conservation of water rights are two
of the most Important conservation
Prevention Better Than Cure.
With all due respect to William Krug,
who lost his life as a result of an auto
mobile "accident," we do not think the
cause of his death la any more criminal
til an was that of the dornestlo who was
ao unfortunate as to be "accidentally"
killed last year at Sixteenth and Far
nan.. The automobile madmen will go
on killing one another and the public
without police interference until we
have one big, grand lynching bee. West
Correct so far as the culpability for
the killing of a domestic being equal
to the culpability for the killing of a
prominent business man. Prevention
is better than cure, and what is wanted
is not venegeance, but security against
repetition. We do not want any
lynching bees in Omaha, but we do
want automobile drivers and owners
to respect the rights of other people
and to desist from reckless overspeed
lng. The thing to do, as already
pointed out by The Bee, is to make
every automobile driver take out a
license subject to limitations of age
and competency and suspend or forfeit
the license for every violation of the
law. . , .
Beyond Heading1 Off.
Our local democratic contemporary
seems to be laboring under the impres
sion that it can head oft the filing of
the petitions being circulated to put
Mr. Bryan's name on the democratic
primary ballot as candidate for United
States senator. It evidently has an
idea that its preferred candidate would
fare better If Mr. Bryan could merely
turn a deaf ear to this popular upris
ing and Btand by his alleged promise
not to run.
But these petitions are beyond head
ing off. They must be filed with the
secretary of state In due time, and Mr.
Bryan must by his own act respond, or
refuse to respond, to the demands of
the petitioners. In other words, the
petitions cannot be smothered or
thrown into the waste basket like Mr.
Bryan's letters to the dollar diners,
without incurring the penalty of the
law. The primary election law of Ne
braska In its penal provisions declares
among other things which are pro
claimed to be unlawful:
Any person, who. being In possession o
nomination papers entitled to be fllrd
tinder this act or any act of the Wlsla
ttlre, shall wrongfully either suppress.
neglect or willfully fall to file or cause to
be filed St the proper time In the proper
office, shall 6n conviction, be punished by
Imprisonment In the county jail not to ex
ceed six months, or by a fine of not to ex
ceod five hundred dollars ($300), or both
such fine and Imprisonment, in the dlscre
Hon of the court
Whoever may be In final possession
of the petitions that have been signed
up to put Mr. Bryan's name on the pri
mary ballot will, therefore, have to file
them before the expiration of the legal
time limit, and Mr. Bryan will have to
say "yes" or "no." The theory of the
law Is that anyone who procures signa
tures to such a petition In the number
required is the trustee of the signers
and legally bound to perfect the noml
nation process. This obligation Is Just
as great if only twenty-five signatures
are attached as if 26,000 are affixed
A Pike to Pike'i Peak.
The pathfinders who biased the
trail from the middle west to Pike's
peak fifty or sixty years ago could
scarcely have dreamed that a half cen
tury later their path would be made
into a smooth, shaded boulevard over
which automobiles, vehicles of which
they had no conception, would be glid
ing from the Missouri river to the sum
mit of the Rockies. Yet that is an
achievement of twentieth century
progress now in process of realization
From Kansas City to Pike's peak a
rolled, stone-dressed boulevard, shaded
aud beautified will be constructed; in
fact, is being constructed, for the
work is already under way through
Kansas. When completed it will af
ford right-of-way to the autolst, who
may speed to his heart's content along
the historic trail which the pioneers
of the frontier made in their "Pike's
peak or bust" crusade when all this
land was a wild prairie and Indian
fighting a common part of travel.
The New Santa Fe trail will be fol
lowed for some distance and a road
from Kansas City to Newton, Kan.,
will form another link. The state of
Kansas is giving generous support to
the enterprise and In the western part
of that state the work is well along.
No doubt Is entertained that Colorado
will join with Kansas in bringing the
turnpike to a successful completion
Neither of these states could well hesi
tate to balk at such a task, the most
severe part of which had been done by
those sturdy torchbearers of civiliza
tion who mapped out the path so many
years ago. It will not only be a tribute
to their early work, but a token of
what the good roads movement means
to this country and of what it may yet
Need for Sanity and Honesty.
Governor Hadley of Missouri told
the graduates of the University of In
diana that the performance of political
and official duties is a practical and
not a theoretical proposition, and that
the country needs no parlor politicians
nor Idle theorists today. He was
speaking on the duty of citizenship
and he might have added that useful
citizenship today demands nothing
more than a sane, sober thought and
judgment, an honest and fearless con
viction and an unselfish motive.
The peril of any nation that under
goes social or political changes in
marked degree Is the clever mounte
bank and the Ignorant demagogue rad
icalism. Against both of these the
United States has to guard, for both
are broad enough today. Governor
Hadley puts It mildly when he calls
them parlor politicians and idle theor
ists. False prophets are generally
shrewd persons, intrenching them
selves behind some popular reform
sentiment, secure In the knowledge
that it is hard to attack them without
seeming to assail the cause that pro
But such periods of political unrest
have come and gone in this country
more than once and the people in the
end have generally been able to sepa
rate the wheat from the chaff. It has
cost us dearly at times to find the
truth and to hold to it, to keep our
heads amid the whirl and din of the
fake crusaders, but in the end we have
come back to safe ground.
If commencement day orators would
pursue the line of thought which Gov
ernor Hadley baa and try to lay on the
young collegian the prime Importance
of individual honesty and effort as a
prerequisite to good citizenship, and
seek to show him the danger of the
political charlatan, they would be do
ing a real service, not only to the grad
uates going out to meet the world,
but to the old world as well.
The Lincoln Journal seems dis
tressed because The Bee ventures the
opinion that those who expect the
political millennium from the federal
campaign publicity law are likely to
be disappointed by the same short
comings as have been disclosed by the
Nebraska campaign fund publicity law.
That does not mean that The Boe op
poses the law. Quite the contrary, us
this paper has always uclvoc-ited and
upheld it Everybody knows that the
publicity law In this state haa been
flagrantly Ignored or evaded, and most
flagrantly by the Bryan political
family, which makes the loudest noise
"What are you going to do with the
populist?" asked a delegate in the
Fourth district democratic convention
and added. "Without the populist
votea we cannot elect a congressman."
The answer is easy. The democrats
are going to steal the populist votes
again by misbranding their candi
dates, Just as Mr. Bryan purloined the
votea belonging to Tom Watson by
masquerading his democratic presiden
tial electors under the populist label.
The Omaha Automobile club haa
resoluted to protest against fast and

for a list of the auto speeders who
have been arrested and fined.
