Important If True.
Announcement la made by the Rail
way Record, a weekly paper published
at Chicago In tbe interest of the rail
roads, that the higher rate schedules
which the railroada have been trying
to force upon the people have been
agreed to by the big shippers, and par
ticularly tbe meat packers, who have
Uvn persuaded to withdraw their op
position to the advance in rates and to
consent to an Increase of 11 per cent
on packing house products from the
Mississippi river to the Atlantic sea
board. After telling these glad tidings
the Railway Record continues:
It has been Intimated that a great deal
of the opposition of shippers aa a whole
to the proposed advance In rates waa cre
ated by the fact that the Impression had
got abroad among them that in making
tbe advance packing house products and
a few other linen, comprising In the aggre
gate a great bulk of the traffic of the rail
roads, eJer to be specially favored. This,
It was claimed, would have thrown the
great burden of the proposed Increase upon
the shoulders of the smaller classes of
shippers, and hence the vehemence which
they exhibited In resisting the efforts of
the roads to advance their rates. Now
that the great packing house Interests have
signified their willingness to pay the im
portant advance referred to, and as other
great lines of Industry such as the steet
interests are understood to be prepared to
take similar action, it la believed that the
opposition of the smaller classes Of shippers
will be entirely overcome, and that when
the railways again file Increased tariffs
with the Interstate Commerce) commission,
no question whatever wilt be raised con
cerning their reasonableness and Justice,
and thua the whole trouble will be peace
fully and happily overcome.
Should the smaller shippers persist In
their opposition It Is believed that the ac
tion of the representatives of the larger
lines. In thus agreeing to a considerable
advance In the rates on their traffic, will
establish such a preponderance of evidence
In favor of the case of the railways that
the Interstate Commerce commission will
have no recourse but to decide in favor
of the railway companies, and they will
thus get all that they have been contending
for In the premises.
This may be Important if true, but
even if true we apprehend that the
smaller shippers, who are not Also big
owners of railway stock and therefore
In no position to milk the cow at both
ends, will not be stampeded by any
such agreement, nor will the Interstate
Commerce commission be constrained
to approve a general rate increase Just
because the packers may be willing to
pay more on their products and take it
out twice over on the live stock man
from whom they buy and the consumer
to whom they sell.
No doubt the railroads will again
file their Increased tariffs. All the
signs point to such determination on
their part, particularly their continued
cry of tight money and loudly pro
claimed abandonment of projected ex
tenslona and improvements, gut if
the railroad rate-makers have led
themselves to believe that no one will
question the reasonableness and jus
tice of the new levy they propose to
make on the traffic of tne Country they
are likely to find themselves mistaken.
No Muzzle for the Press.
The attorney for Lee O'Nell Browne,
accused of bribing legislators, showed
lack of good judgment when he
asked the court for an order enjoining
the press from criticising the four men
who hung the jury in this case. No
matter if this attorney actually be
lieves in the innocence of hltf client,
he was not warranted in making such
motion and the court did a com
mendable thing in summarily overrul
ing it.
It la not for courts to abridge the
right of free speech or free press in
this country where those rights are
organic and where they have stood
since the foundation of the republic as
one of the greatest restraining influ
ences in our national and civic life.
Good men and righteous causes do not
suffer, aa a rule, and have little to fear
from the searchlight of publicity and
In such cases as this one, where the
accused is not acquitted, but merely
escapes on technical grounds in the
first trial, it would help nothing to
muzzle the press. There are ample
legal restrictions 'upon the newspapers
for the protection of innocent parties,
or parties charged and not proven
guilty or crime, so that for any un
bridled comment passed upon Mr.
Browne or the four men who refused
to accredit the evidence of his alleged
guilt there is a remedy provided.
It is not an argument for this at
torney's case or client or for the
character of service rendered by these
four men for the attorney to make this
remarkable request of the court. Let
honest criticism be made unhindered.
It there Is no guilt anywhere there
can be no injury, and if there is culpa
bility the people may want to know
It and the light of further publicity
might enable them to Bee It.
State Conservation.
The deliberations and results of
South Dakota's state conservation
congress will arouse more than or
dlnary interest, as the congress rep
resents the cosmopolitan citizenship
and the varied industries of the state
and contemplates a broad scope of
activity. It is the purpose to ask the
federal government that the coal, tlm
ber and water of the state be removed
from federal to state control and that
the arid land heretofore subject to
government reclamation be turned
over to the state to' compensate for
the railway and swamp land grants
given to other states.
These demanda will no doubt meet
with objection, especially from those
who look askance at the general prln
clplo of state's rlghta, but It need not
necessarily come in conflict with that
fundamental doctrine. Until the plan
of national conservation has bad time
for practical operation there will of
course, be some obstacles la its way
of state Initiative, but It would seem
that the state could accomplish . much
Kood by co-operating with the national
government In safeguarding Its nat
ural resources, as each state ought to
be Intimately acquainted with its own
resources to be able to develop or
conserve them Intelligently. The plan
n.ipht also eventually have the very
desirable effect of lightening tbe ex
pense of the goneral conservation
movement upon the government, and,
if so, then leave more money for the
carrying on of enterprises distinctly
federal In character.
Minnesota has organized a state
conservation Congress and other states
are likely to follow the example, but
owing to Its peculiar situation South
Dakota's project will no doubt have
vital bearing upon the action of
other states.
Parents and the Fourth.
City councils and mayors In many
cities have decided In favor of the
'safe and sane Fourth," while officials
In other cities have not. But without
official embargoes to aid them parents
can do much toward bringing about a
safe and sane Fourth, toward prevent
ing needless casualties from the hand
ling of explosives if they will. Of
course, Mrs. Jones may not be able to
do much with Willlo Smith, but she
can with Johnny Jones. If each father
and mother would do their best to
keep their children from running wild
that day and Injuring themselves or
somebody else they would find a tre
mendous falling off In the list of acci
dents.
And vthy should not parents per
form this duty? Why should they
wait for of hers to do it for them?
True enough, tho least city officials
could do, If they viewed this matter
in Its serious aspects, would be to
limit the use of dangerous fireworks.
but even then it remaina largely a
matter of parental control. Last year
there was some falling off in the gen
eral number of Fourth of July victims
over the country, showing that the
people are getting more cautious about
the use of these perilous devices, but
there should be a greater reduction
this year and there will be If every
household looks out for Its own.
The Late Senator Daniel.
The death of Senator John W.
Daniel of Virginia takes out of the
halls of national legislation the most
typical representative remaining of
the old school southern statesmanship.
Except for Senators Frye and Hale of
Maine, Senator Cullom of Illinois and
Senator Aldrich of Rhode Island, Sen
ator Daniel's record for length of con
tinuous service in the United States
senate is unequalled by any of his col
leagues.
Senator Daniel's democracy was of
the ancient and unadulterated brand.
True, lie followed Bryan In bis first
two campaigns, but with reluctance
and misgiving. He never had much
faith in Bryan leadership, and even
had a personal encounter with him as
result of their differences before his
third term nomination, which the Vir
ginian freely asserted was foredoomed.
As a constitutional lawyer Senator
Daniel was in a class reached by very
few, and the law text book known as
'Daniel on Negotiable Instruments,"
written by him in bis youthful days, Is
still a standard. Everywhere, In pri
vate Intercourse as well as In the Ben
ate chamber, he was courtliness and
gallantry personified. Virginia will
have to search far to find another to
fill his place as well as he did.
A Far-Reaching Sate Decision.
The Interstate Commerce commis
sion has decided that the principle of
rate making is wrong that permits a
railroad to charge more for transporta
tlon from Omaha to Reno than from
Omaha to Sacramento, or the same
whether the shipment originates at
Omaha or Denver or Boston and goeB
to Reno or Sacramento. It is purely
arbitrary and the railroads have never
been able, when put to the test, to
Justify It, though they have managed
In some way to keep the principle in
vogue. The idea mat intermediate
cities should pay the coast terminal
rate plus the local back to the point
of delivery never was tenable and the
wonder la that the railroads have been
able to maintain. They could have
done their general cause much good
by abandoning it long ago, but instead
of that they are not yet ready to
make the concession.
It is this practice that the Interstate
Commerce commission knocks out in
Its decision In the Pacific coast cases,
which is one of the most important
it has ever made respecting freight
rates, because it both uproots one of
the railroads' most tenaciously held
rules .and is nation-wide in its effect
It furthermore must be helpful aa
factor in clearing up thla whole rate-
making situation. Certainly It tends
to add no weight to the railroads'
arguments and pleas for the necessity
of a higher level of rates aa a means
of increasing their earning power. Its
chief influence in this connection will
be moral, for It la bound to reflect
some discredit upon the good faith of
these representations. Of course,
there may be rates here and there that
are subject to reaoonabe advance, just
as thjre are others calling for reduc
tlon, but the remedy la not a general
raise, but readjustment upon a sound
basis.
A bo dived from the center span of
Brooklyn bridge into East river for
$250 offered by a merchant to any per
son foolish enough to risk his life In
thin manner. But why make such
offers? What cause is to be served
by the feat? And what if the boy had
been killed, aa many othera have who
tried to do what be dial ) UtJj Is
the merchant's way of advertising he
ought to learn some new lessons and
the law might take a hand in teaching
him.
Our democratic friends are evidently
hard to please. Here is one In the
same Issue of the democratic contem
porary fTscrlblng the loss of a postmas
tershlp of . one senator to his Insur
gency and crediting another senator
with getting an appointment for a
favorite who Is too much of an Insur
gent. This looks like the coon trap
"to catch 'em a-comln' and a-goin'."
Even our newly arrived army offi
cers remark upon the disgraceful con
dition of Omaha's streets, which is the
one thing about our city that Impresses
strangers unfavorably. For bad
streets, however, the blame can be lo
cated and the fault remedied If our
people will only pursue the matter vig
orously and persistently.
Freedom to worship God In any
orderly manner is the constitutional
right of every American citizen, but
freedom to disturb the neighborhood
with a bass drum pounded in the name
of religion at all hours of thg day and
night has Its limitations.
Reports from Montreal are to the
effect that on landing "Mr, Bryan re
fused to discuss politics." It's a ten-to-one
shot, however, that he will over
come his reluctance to discuss politics
very shortly after he gets within sight
of Fairvlew.

LOST IJf THE IHUKFtB,
How a Coal Rate Redaction Failed to

Sioux City Tribune.
The public cries out aeainst railroad
and demands lower freight rates.
But when lower freight rates mm.
they sometimes do. the consuml nir nennla
discover that the reduction does not al
ways reach them in the form r,t
prices. As an Illustration of this, two years
ago tne interstate Commerce commission,
on complaint of the Nebraska. Tfniiwnu
commission, reduced coal rates from Colo
rado and Wyoming to some Nebraska
points. At North Platte, for example, this
reduction was from It.&O to $3.60 per ton.

at North Platte the other day, finding the
people there Impatient at the state com
mission because It waa not doing as much
for them as they thought It ought to do,
undertook to refresh their minds s IUMa
and referred to the XI a ton reduction in
coal ratea.
"What reduction In coal rnt.n1"'

commissioner Wlnnett, "the reduction In
freight rates i)f $1 a ton that the commis
sion got for you people about two years
ago." "We didn't get It," responded the
North Platters. "You may have reduced
the freight rates, but the retail prices are
the same. We get no benefit" "That is
not the fault of the commission," said Dr.
Wlnnett, and he waa right.

Commissioner Drlscoll of the New York
bureau of knights and measures had a
heat t-to-hrart talk Inst Monday with rep
rfiitatlva provision dealers, chiefly
butchers engaged In the wholesale trade.
The purpose of the commissioner was to
Impress upon the dealers that net weight
Is to bo the rule henceforth, that short
weight will not bo tolerated, and that
wood skewers, spreaders, and wrappers
must not be weighed in wlth tlie meat and
palmed off on the consumer at meat prices,
Several dtalers caught with short weight
goods were given to understand they
must stop the practice or prosecution will
follow. Among the shady specimens ex
hibited to the d.'akrs with the dealers'
brands were horns and bacon six ounces
short of the branded weight and carrying
ono pound of cover, skewers soaked lit
water to Increase their weight, one Bkewer
weighing ten ounces and another twenty
ounces, and lamb carcasses covered with
"caul fat," which increased the cost 20
cents. "Custom" was the excuse given for
these practices of the trade.

and with miniature explosions going on

Persons passing a clothing store In
Broadway, near Canal street, for the last
week have been interested In a larga,
typewritten notice pasted in the window,
entitled "Tips to Tourists. The Language,
of Kuropean Labels." This notice warns
all prospective European travelers of the
secret Bertllllon or "trunk-print" system,
adopted by porters and other employes In
foielgn hotels, by means of which they
re able to segregate the tourists into
"tipping" and "non-tipping" . classes, and
nnouncea that the secret "code" has been
deciphered by a member of the firm ar.d
Is explained In the sign.
When asked how It was that he had
made so exhaustive a study of the subject,
the member of the firm said that he had
been pestered so long by porters of foreign
hotels seeking "tips" that he determined
to find out Just what these secret signals
were by means of which the porters estab
lished a "tipper's dead line."
it set forth, for instance, that a label
pasted In tho middle of the top covpr of
a suit case or trunk signifies that the
owner Is a close-fisted person. A label
pasted on the covers at right angles with
the long side of the parallelogram means
the owner has a bad temper and is likely
to use his flats If annoyed. If tbe label is
pusied diagonally across the cover it indi
cates that the bearer la easy and can be
made to double his tip.
A few years ago a banking institution
was started that appealed strongly to a
peculiar pride of the Manhattamte. A
bank was opened to run day and night,
never to close Its doors. to rushed were
the people, It waa announced, that It wis
absolutely necessary, In order to enable
them to get rid of their surplus cash and
put it into a safe place, that an oppor
tunity should be offered to bank at all
hours. Strangers were shown the Night
and Day bank as an evidence that New
York never sleeps. The lights burning
within the institution were regarded al
most as reverently as altar flames.
The midnight tellers were considered as
the highest type of metropolitan enterprise
and progress. But lately the directors of
the Night and Day bank have noticed that
while the lights burn brightly and the in
stitution is pointed out with pride by New
Yorkers escorting rural cousins about tne
city, and loudly proclaimed by the orators
on tho sight-seeing automobiles, little
business was done after 9 o'clock. So,
having more regard for dividends than lor
furnishing an object of tourist Interest,
the directors have decreed that hereafter
the bank will be open at h o'clock in iro
morning and close at midnight.
"It was just like a sabre cut that ap
peared on tho rlKht foreleg of General
Kherman's horse, but of course we knew
that no sabre caused that injury," said an
officer of the park department speaking
of the equestrian statue at the Plata.
"The cut extended from the hock almost
to the knee and threatened to enlarge un
less repaired. That leg is raised and
flexed at the knee. The only way In which
we could account for the Injury was that
the aun caused an expansion of the bronse,
making a slight crack, and then when
winter came water got Into the crack.
Water In freezing has great force and It
just rent the bronse asunder. It caused
the department to expend 195 In repairing
the horse's leg."
A large china cup with a handle was
shoved across the counter and a child's
voice said; "Ma wants a cupful of sugar."
The grocer filled the cup, weighed the
sugar, poured it back Into tha cup and
said: "Two cents."
To a customer who expressed surprise
at his willingness to sell groceries in such
small quantities, he said:
"Have to In this neighborhood. Most
of these people live from meal to meal,
which means that they buy things by
measure instead of weight. Beckoned by
the cupful, the spoonful or the pailful they
know Just how much of anything they
need. In order to satisfy both customers
and the inspector of weights and measures
we measure first to suit the trade, then
weigh afterward."

rlsht when he calls Governor Shallenberger
a four-flusher?
Howells Journal (lem.): Nebraska wants
Bryan In the senate and he must not turn
a deaf ear to the pleading of hit people
no matter how little desire he may have
fur the position. The draft Is to be made,
and he must honor !t.
Kearney Democrat: Very gratifying news
reached the public to the effoct that Gov
ernor Shallenberger had announced that he
would not call an extraordinary session of
the legislature. This Is a wlso act on the
part of the governor and we never did have
a fear that he would be led astray by his
enemies with their sophistry about the ex
tra session business.
Arapahoe Pionevr: Shallenberger la the
only governor we have been able to elect
for over years. Why should he lo
turned down for a man who represents the
bHSer interests of tha stats? Down with
Dahlman, down with the breweries, the
distilleries, down with tha Interests that
back Dahlman! They are the low, degrad
ing kind, else why did they not go higher
up for a candidate to represent them7
Mouth 8loux City Kccord: After promising
Mr. Bryan a special session In which to
down the liquor "ghost," Governor Shal
lenberger showed his hand thla week, by
refusing to call the legislature. Talk
about your "slippery" and "foxy" politi
cians. He got the brewery and temperance
vote in 1804 and wants them both in 1910.
He waa the liquor Interests' choice lit l'JOfc'
and Is still. He signed the I o'olock clos
ing, because he had to not because he
wanted to.
Clay Canter Sun: Those who were led
to believe that Congressman Hitchcock had
tho right-of-way with Bryan's endorsement
for the United States senate are reminded
that a number of Nebraska paper have
all tha time predicted that soma way would
be found to Induce Mr. Bryan to be a can
didate. With Mr. Bryan out of the country,
and hundreds of lnngcent looking petitions
being sent out over the state, the old tint.
pressuret?) Is being brought to bear, and
the Omulia congressman is in a fair way
to again feel the sting of ingratitude."
Albion Argus (Dem.): No extra session
of the legislature to enact the initiative
and referendum. Tbe governor has dis
covered that the matter must be paased
on In the primary and so was a little too
late getting around tg it Probably Just as
well. While we are in favor of the meas
ure, yet w do not consider It of sufficient
Importance to Justify Calling a special ses
sion of the legislature to enact it If It
Is as good as we all think. It will keep Ull
winter and will then become a law, no
matter which party la in power. All the
good Is not in one party.
Blair Pilot: Congressman Jim Latta
voted against tha postal savings bank bill,
not because It was In the democratic na
tional platform, but mora probably because"
he was a banker and It was against his
personal interests. The excuse he gave
was that the democratic platform failed to
carry, but the republican platform prom
ised the same thing and It did carry. Evi
dently neither the voice of the people
nor the voice of the democratic party is
the voice of God to Mr. Latta. How
hardly can a rich man, even a banker,
become a real statesman, even though
he secures the votes and is able to write
"M. C." after his name.
Kearney Hub: Hear! hearl This from
Chairman Carrlg to the World-Herald with
reference to the Bryan letter: "I was some
what surprised that Mr. Bryan's under
study at Lincoln, namely I taka for
granted Charles Bryan, should turn over
correspondence of this kind to the Omaha
Bee. It is certainly not treating Nebraska
democrats light for the many favors shown
Mr. Bryan In past years In this state, and
I don't think tbat such will be received
with very good grace by Nebraska demo
crats. I have no apotogy to extend to
Mr. Bryan for tbe action I took In ref
erence to his letter, and oan assure him
that Buffalo county democrats are not in
accord with him on many state Issues in
the coming campaign."
Holbrook Observer (Dem.): If certain
leaders of the democratic party of the
state are not carerul they are going to
wake up some of these days to find their
party badly demoralised. At present cer
tain straws would Indicate that some of
these leaders are endeavoring to cater to
the corporate Interests and the people at
the same time. This same condition dis
qualified the republican party In Ne
braska, and Is disqualifying It today In
the nation. Tha attempt of some of the
democrats in the state to hold up W. J.
Bryan to ridicule, ao to speak, because
of his attitude on county option or the
initiative and referendum will not have
any reassuring effect on the people
whether they b demoorats, Independents
or republicans. The democrats stand an
'excellent show of winning i'.i this fall's
election, providing there Is n honesty of
purpose back of it Otherwise there is
liable to be a revulsion, of feeling, which
will sound its fefes'. in no uncertain
language. We vtoulA regret to learn that
Governor Bha'.ienbe rger could be a party
to this conspiracy. That others In whom
tbe people have placed confidence the last
two years wouW: so far forget their obli
gations to their constituency. In case this
were true, the aovernor's eloquence could
not save him. The side-stepping of the
World-Herald on certain state issues would
have an unsavory effect and would be
conducive to defeat Tbe Observer will not
support any form of democracy If It must
Join the breweries and other corporate In
terests, detrimental to the people, to win
victory at tha polls.
Talks for people
There is business for every day in
the week enough to uake every day
a day of profit and gain, If you will go
out and get it, every day.
You cannot advertise today and ex
pect the public to remember what you
said a week hence too many things
Intervene. People have too many In
terests of their own to remember you
unless you bring yourself to their
notice constantly.
It is the little, Insistent, every-day
advertisement that gets the every-day
business.
Once-in-a-whlle-advertlsing will an
swer if you are satisfied with email
business, but it Is a well-proven fact
that advertising effect increases in pro
portion to the quantity or frequency
of appearance of space used.
Yon who want business every day;
had you not better ute th advertising
columns of the newspaper which
reachea most of tha peope every day?
