Not long ago The Dee called Atten
tion to Oregon's experience with the
Initiative and referendum, drawing the
materials from the speech delivered by
Senator Jonathan Bourne, Jr., boasting
that Oregon is the only state In the
union which enjoys true popular gov
ernment. We showed that In Oregon
the initiative and referendum, al
though operative in only three elec
tions, bad resulted in submitting to
popular vote thirty-two different meas
ures, of which two were submitted in
904, eleven in 1906 and nineteen In
908. We asked whether this multi
plicity of legislation did not tend to
make it absolutely impossible for the
voters to pass on it intelligently. The
only reply drawn out at the time was
that the initiative and referendum
might at first be taken advantage of
too freely and thus abused while a
novelty, but that when once estab
lished the number of measures sub
mitted would grow steadily smaller
and popular attention would be fo
cused upon them with beneficial re
sults. We did not at that time have the
information, for Senator Bourne seems
to have carefully suppressed It in his
speech, as to how many and what
measures were to be voted on in Ore
gon under the Initiative and referen
dum at the coming election. It turns
out that this year, the fourth elec
tlon slnco the system was inaugu
rated, the people of Oregon are to
vote, not upon fewer measures, , but
upon more. To be exact, they will
vote this year upon thirty-two separate
and distinct propositions, which Is pre
cisely the same number as the com
bined list of all three elections here
Some of these measures ' may be
meritorious, hut the great majority of
them are plainly freak schemes backed
by some small body of overcealous en
thuslasts persisting in their agitation
from year to year and accepting no de
cision as final. Oregon is this year
to pass, on the local option question for
the fourth time, is to Tas8 oh woman
suffrage for the third time, is to pass
on single tax for Oie second time, to
say nothing of other consequential and
inconsequential subjects. According to
the Portland Oregonlan not more than
three or four of the thirty-two meas
ures submitted to popular vote would
warrant the legislature in devoting
time to them, and not one of them re
sponding to a really popular demand
that could not be met through the
regular course of legislative procedure
without the initiative and referendum.
The people may rule In Oregon, but
we reiterate that they do not rule any
better or more effectively In Oregon
than the people rule in Nebraska.
Grain Prospects Improve.
According to reliable reports, the
grain crop is turning out much better
In the vest and northwest than was
earlier indicated. A compilation of
crop statistics by Bradstreet's leaves
little room for doubt about it on the
whole. Of course, In some states and
localities there are sure to be slumps,
but the general average will come
very near being maintained.
Corn, according to the latest esti
mates, has been so much benefited by
recent showers as to be up to normal
for this time of. year, and this ought
to lend tremendous encouragement,
for there were signs for awhile that
the corn crop would, be decidedly off.
Of course, there is time yet for losses,
but it would seem that the most trying
test is passed. '
When It comes to winter wheat, the
information 1b more certain, for it
goes to actual harvests and not esti
mates. Winter wheat,' taking the sec
tion over, is yielding far better than
was anticipated at the beginning of
the harvest, which is now well-nigh
ended. This yield, however, is irreg
ular, California, Oklahoma and Texas
are turning out heavy crops, while in
uitiuf aito ILe yield ranges from
light to good. Nebraska thus far re
ports a three-quarter crop.
Barbed Wire Diplomacy.
Mexico has chosen to make a diplo
matlo issue out of the simple incident
ot a ranger cutting a hole In a oarbed
wire fence that happens to define the
boundary line between the "United
8tates and the DIas republic, and seri
ous consequences, we are told, may
Trouble may be avoided it Mexico
will release the ranger whom it has
arrested and make him go and patch
up the fence and let it alone in the
future. That really is the quickest
way out, and if Mexico is the wise lit
tle republic it is reputed to be it will
take that way. Boundary line dis
putes are not new in the history of
the United States and there is . no
record to show that our safety or se
curuy nas ever Deen impaled on a
barbed wire fence.
This ranger, it appears, wanted to
take out enough of the fence to make
a gate, presumably to. let his cattle
through to grass. It was out there in
the weird,' worn prairies of the sage
brush and cactus kingdom where not
enough fresh vegetation grows to feed
grasshoppers on and a man willing to
wMle away his life in such a place
ought certainly to have the right of
cutting a hole in a barbed wire fence.
But It that Is against the law of the
great republic of Mexico, why he can
patch it up again and make It as good
aa new, and the thing is ended.
But why should Mexico object to a
gateway through the fence if used for
lawful purposes? Does it not believe
is the open door? Is it not as friendly
to this country as China and Japan
and Russia, here at our very thresh
hold? And suppose Mexico had never)
discovered this transgression of its
territorial rights this infringement
upon Its boundary line, what then?
Would the injury to national pride,
the destruction, of diplomatic rights,
have been the same? Or suppose a
hurricane had come along andblown
the whole fence down? A dosen things
might have happened to this interna
tional fence that would not have
aroused the national ire of our sensi
tive neighbor. What has happened
ought not to arouse anybody and Mex
ico will display a finer line of diplo
macy and hard sense by forgetting
all about It.
Primary Election Etiquette.
Just because a primary election is
impending it does not follow that
every newspaper muBt make itself a
packhorse to Inflict the public with
the outpourings of every candidate de
luded with the Idea that he is respond
ing to an Irresistible popular clamor.
Symptoms of the disease known as de
mentia polities have been manifested
by certain candidates hurling interro
gation marks, challenges and defies at
their competitors in the hope of at
tracting public attention. They would
hire a hall, engage a brass band, send
rut circular letters, put up banners
and even subsidize town criers, but
pay a newspaper for the space their
literary productions occupy perish
The most naive exhibit in this di
rection which has yet come to notice
is the announcement of a local candi
date who sends us a neatly typowrit-
en statement for publication In wttlch
I shall post no pictures nor pass any
cards. I shall not electioneer or permit
the same to be done at the polls on elec
tion day. I regard most ot the modern
advertising and wire-pulling of candidates
as an Insult to the Intelligence of my fellow-electors.
In other words, it would be an in
sult to the voters for this candidate to
pay for his advertising, but it would bo
perfectly proper for him to advertise
if he could get the advertising for
We admire the frankness of this
particular candidate. Others try to
put the same theory in practice, but
have not the nerve to preach It.
Hadley a Oood Choice.
President Taft's selection, of Presi
dent Hadley of Yale to act as chair
man of the commission that Is to in
vestigate railroad securities will meet
with general approval, for Prof. Had
ley devoted years to the study of rail
road management and financing and is
as well, if not better, qualified than
any other man in the. country to do
the work. President Taft has made
few appointments since entering the
White House as eminently suitable as
this one. It is to be hoped that Pres
ident Hadley will be able to accept the
place, for he doubtless will be Inclined
to do so.
The strictly practical politician
would avoid such selections, but Mr.
Taft is not playing politics in his ef
forts to get at the downright justice
and propriety of controlling our rail
roads and other great corporate inter
ests. The sentiment of the people and
the trend of the times are for fair,
free and frank treatment of these
great subjects, and President Taft
more nearly represents the crystallisa
tion of this sentiment than any other
man. - It is highly befitting, therefore,
that in casting about for the man to
head this commission, upon whose
work immense responsibilities hang,
he should go to one whose scientific
research and practice have made him
a recognized authority on the subject
Prof. Hadley was studying the rail
road question when each president of
a line was doing things as seemed to
him best, and the government was
standing aloof looking on, and he has
continued his study through the vary
ing stages ot legislation and railroad
development, writing books on the
subject, teaching It In college class
rooms and being consulted by the best
thinkers of the day. With him as
chairman of this commission it la
foregone conclusion that the most
searching and at the saiuo time un
biased investigation would be made
and any report submitted to congress
by the commission with his name at
tached would certainly receive the
highest consideration, ' carrying the
most potent Influence. Such a report
would make possible a successful solu
tion of this great, perplexing problem
. Incorporators ot a bank refused a

the ground that the town in which the

law was under discussion one of the
arguments urged against it was that it
would encourage promoters of banking
enterprises to attempt to do an un
warranted business on the strength of
the guaranty that other banks would
make up any losses to their depositors

On the local option Issue Mr. Bryan has
met his first decisive defeat In the demo
cratic party In Nebraska. Except his home
county, not a single one of twenty-one
counties that held county conventions last
Saturday sided with him. He named his
own Issue, went Into the field to make
the fight and has been overwhelmingly
Since 1894 Mr. Bryan has controlled the
democratic party In hla state and made
his own Issues. For sixteen years he has
been its leader and dominated It abso
lutely. According to his view, not to be
a Bryan democrat was to be no democrat
t all. It remains to be seen what sort
of democrat Mr. Bryan will be, now that
he haa lost control of Ms party on the pro
Failed to "Come Bark."
Washington Post (Ind.).
Warned by the democratic managers to
desist from foisting upon hla party a pro
gram repugnant to democratic policy,
Bryan declared that he personally owed
the people of Nebraska a debt of gratitude
which he was about to pay. He spoke as
if still in the heyday of leadership and In
fluence, and had only to raise his hand In
order to secure obedience. He did not care
to be senator, so he selected the associate
editor of the Commoner for the place.
With this program to conjure with, Includ
ing hla local option proposition, he has
carried at last accounts a single county in
the state. The effect is to unload Bryan,
bag and baggage, upon the prohibition
party. That la the last refuge of the man
than whom no mountebank in American
politics ever got so many rebuffs, whose
exaggerated ego was armored so effectually
to withstand penetration. It remains to be
seen what ' the prohibition party will do
with its Incubus.
Picking; Losing; Issues.
New York Evening Post (Ind.).
Mr. Bryan's gift for picking out the
winning Issue Is notoriously not an over
developing talent When the fanatical strain
in the man joins In to accentuate his want
of insight and foresight, we get some such
disastrous result as the overwhelming de
feat of Mr. Bryan's county-option scheme
in Nebraska, i Out of twenty-one county
conventions, one only, and that one hla
own, will stand by the peerless leader,
Yet this setback, hailed by Mr. Bryan's
opponents as marking the end ot his
ascendency in the democratic party of Ne
braska, may easily be exaggerated. In the
first place, William J. Bryan has so long
been the prophet and leader of defeat that
one reverse more cr less does not greatly
matter. That undeniable hold which he
exercises over a large section of the demo
cratic masses Is by this time proof against
the dUoouragement attendant upon a single
defeat. Or, rather, It Is a loyalty which
thrives upon defeat, and cites its leader's
unsuccess as proof of his disinterestedness,
of his unwillingness to compromise, of his
Instinct for the light issue aa against the
winning Issue. On the specific, subject of
prohibition it may very well be that Mr.
Bryan haa miscalculated Its political poten
tialities. "What a Kali; Mr Countrymen."
Boston Transcript (rep.).
Mr. Bryan has now been before the peo
ple of the United States for fourteen years
as a national celebrity. In that time he
has thrice been candidate of the democratic
party for president. Twice he haa Imposed
himself upon conventions in which the
majority of the delegates felt that hla
nomination was equivalent to defeat. . His
prominence has been his capital, and it has
been emphasised by the surrender ot
reluctant party to hla dictation. His posi
tion Is unique historically, and well does
Mr. Bryan know how to make the most of
it. It la worth a great deal to him aa a
lecturer, If It does not prove of any value
to him as a politician. At present he ap
parently has no Intention of appearing
otherwise than aa the holder of a mortgage
on the democratic nomination. He may
have no mortgage, but he plays the role of
one assured of having such a document In
safe deposit vault, and If he does not aspire
to control the convention ot 1912, appear
ances and the precedents of hla former
methods count for nothing. Months ago he
all but allied himself with the prohibi
tionists, nevertheless he made a reserva
tion expressed in his advocacy of county
option. Today it would not be Inconsistent
with the text of his declaration if he ac
cepted the defeat of county option as the
settlement of a local Issue, or rejoiced in
Its victory as a matter apart fr6m the
broad field cf natural politics.
A Shattered Idol.
Brooklyn Kagle (dem.)
What has recently happened In Nebraska
la of Interest to the country, principally be
cause of the effects It may have two years
hence, a stinging defeat for Mr. Bryan
In his own state being somewhat difficult
to whistle down the wind. Not that It
will disconcert tha defeated. He will per
sist as complacently aa though nothing had
happened or as though the result had been
reversed, thanks to a temperament pe
culiarly his own.
It la not long since an effort to read
Harmon out of the Aarty, In the event
of certain contingencies, waa made by Mr.
Bryan, who notified the governor fo Ohio
to prepare to stand aside. That display of
authority waa ludicrous when looked at In
the light of what followed. The orders
Issued were Ignored, the governor was re
nominated and hla party standing Is now
such that there is frequent mention of his
name In connection with the presidency.
Next came a notification, couched in
equally peremptory terms and Served upon
the governor of Nebraska, the mayor of
Omaha and Congressman Hitchcock, for
all of whom Mr. Bryan outlined a program.
As they did not see fit to comply with it,
an ultimatum came. They were ordered
to project county options as the paramount
issue, and, as wonders f'tU never cease,
they proceeded to line up against it. With
what result? Mr. Bryan's ultimatum was
ratified by a single county.
A convention will follow. Presumably,
Mr. Bryan will attend It In person, more
particularly aa he haa a candidate one of
hla partners In business for the United
States senate. A further reason for his
presence Is the fact that he haa prepared
a speech, addressed not so much to Ne
braska, as to all commonwealths. Mean
while, from Omaha comes the announce
ment that the convention program will be
formulated by the winners. It may limit
speeohes to five minutes.
For the conditions thus confronting the
"Idol" of hla party no parallel can be found.
The-e la no record of a repudiation any
thing like ao overwhelming. At the beat
he can have no mure than half a dosen
sympathiser in the convention. For
whatever hearing he may succeed In se
curing he will have to depend upon the
courteay of hla foes. He will find himself
compelled to accept as a favor what ha
haa always been in a position hitherto to
assert aa a right He has come down
with more than the customary thud. He
Is In fragments.

concert warranted sacred ana cnarging a

a sheriff, who usurped the umpire's place,
construed the rules to suit himself and
declared everybody out.

Talks for people
Suppose The Bea should say to its
subscribers: "We will gather the
news, publish this paper and deliver it
to you eight or ten months in the year,
but. as soon as It gets warm we will
discontinue because some of our sub
scribers go out of town, or, you don't
read, anyway, during the summer, or,
if you do read you are not Interested."
Suppose The Bee dd that and , then
asked those same people to remember
It during those five or six months of
silence and be ready to renew their
subscriptions when' we were ready to
print the paper.
That would be the folly of follies,
would it not?
Yet you who stop your advertising

same thing of your customers. You

SAME OLD SU14HERTIME.
Ada Stewart Shelton In Life.
The same old summer time Is here,
The same old scene is set
Of dancing waters, shining sands,
And rocks where high titles fret
The same old golden moon comes up
To make the scene complete.
Along the shore I walk with her
The same old tale repeat t
The same old mountains stand to guard
The little lake so blue;
We paddle 'mid the Illy pads
The same old bark ranoe; -The
same old pine trees whisper low
As dreamily we float.
And from the same old poets then
In thrilling tonea I quote. - 1 '
The same old band Invites to danoe,
And I at once make haste
To place this, same old arm ot mine
Around her slender waist. J
The same old "Blue Danube" sets the pace.
And in the giddy whirl .
I thank my stars this same old time
Brings always a new girl I
