The Eucharistio Congress
No religious convention ever held
on this continent surpasses in notable
significance or numbers the euchar
istlc congress how in session at Mont
real. Villa Marie never before has
felt such An impulse of pious zeal.
From every land on the globe 135
archblshopB and bishops, hundreds of
priests and more than 200,000 lay
men are there assembled to revivify
their faith,, the faith of the Catholic
church, in the eucharist. The pope
sends bis personal representative in
the venerable Cardinal Vannutelll and
through him transmits his message of
love to the faithful; the king of
England sends his personal message, a
circumstance whose significance can
not be lost sight of in the light of his
tory and tradition, and other great
powers are in some way represented.
The sacrament of the Lord'B supper.
in its solemn meaning to the Christian
world must always be kept alive if the
faith is to flourish and this 1b a fact
which the great Catholic church has
ever recognized, it is little less than
astounding to the world to pause and
think of hundreds of thousands of men
coming from all lands and vast dis
tances for the common purpose of re
newing their allegiance to this bond, of
pouring the libation of their hearts on
this single altar of devotion, but the
wonder la lost in the appreciation of
the one great truth. The spirit that
moves them and holds them in this
simple faith is the same that for cen
turies inspired the search for the Holy
Grail and that holds together millions
of men and women of all nations in
No wonder the Catholic church
moves with such amazing system and
control, such directness of purpose;
no wonder it holds such firm grasp
upon its members, the masses. Unity
was the keynote of Cardinal Vannu
tellt'a address at this congress and the
secret of that unity which holds Catho
lics together, he declared to be, this
sacrament. Here is a great leBson for
others who may not be Catholics, or
who may not believe in Catholicism,
and it is a profitable lesson.
Employers' Liability Waste.
John Mitchell points out that 1 70,.
000,000 was wasted in this country
under the present system of employers'
liability In personal Injury cases from
1S94 to 1903 and he is advocating the
compensation system as a means of
preventing this needless expenditure
ot money and giving both employer
and employe better results. Mr. Mit
chell, In explaining his statement,
I am not yet prepared to aay what the
relative cost VouM be 'under a compensa
tion aystem as against the present liability
aystem. Flgurea compiled by authorities,
however, show that In eleven years the
liability, companies of America took In
S90,959OiX In premiums from Amertoan em
ployers. These companies puld out in the vettle
ment of claims of Injured workmen u,-
oot.uw, or aoout per cent or tne amount
they tgok In. Or the HJ.599.000 paid In
settlement claims. It Is aafe to any that 35
per cent' was expended by the Injured work
men in the payment of attorneys' fees and
In tho final analysis, then, the Injured
workmen received less than S30.tOO.ouo out
of the nearly S100.ow.ikjo paid by the em
ployers during this pVrlod In premiums to
the liability companies.
In other wonla tTO.QiO.Oua was wasted,
yea, worse than waated. because the money
was used In burdening our courts with
litigation and In delaying or defeating the
settlement of Just claims.
It should require no skillful argu
ment to convince anybody that a sys
tem such as this is wrong, for it not
only works great deprivation and in
justice upon the employe, but inflicts
a needless hardship on the employer.
Yet the employer has himself to blame
yers' fe and court tosto $Tu. 000,000
rather than let that amount go into
the Indemnification of Injured work
men or their families, that la hla look
out and what consequent losses he sus-
and expensive court trials.
Whether It is right or not that in
dustry should bear the burden of the
pecuniary loss sustained by workihen
as a result of accidents, It is a fact
that Industry has to bear the burden
of pecuniary loss sustained in the wpar
and tear of its inanimate machinery.
It is a matter that demands attention
and the president and congress fire
giving it attention. In a recent state
ment, President taft refers to this
very problem as one that must -.soon
be settled, and if it ran be Settled by
the Joint counsel of employer and em
ploye it will be so much better for all
Why is a Pledge t
The dilemma into which several
more or less distinguished democrats
have forced themselves by filing for
nomination oh the populist ticket as
well as their own recently prompted
The Bee to inquire of what force and
effect Is the pledge required by law as
part of the filing "to abide by the re
sult of the primary and qualify if
elected." The Bee suggested that if
this pledge means anything it must
mean that the successful candidate in
each primary IS legally bound to stay
in the game and go through Irrespec
tive of whether he is successful or Un
successful In landing on any other
ticket. To this the R?d Cloud Argus,
a little paper published not far from
the home pretinct of Governor Shal-
Does The Bee insinuate that Hliallen
berger in under obligation to run on the
popullHt ticket, becftutte he received the
populist nomination, and aWore that he
would qualify, If nomlnatedT We' do not
agree with The Bee. Undoubtedly Stial
lenberger, when he took the oath, meant
only that he would qualify as a candidate
for election, In case of his nomination oh
both the democratic aiid populist Heketa.
It was not for a moment auppoBed that
the oath obligated him to run oh one
ticket when he was a candidate on two
tickets, especially since tt was well kndwn
that he regarded the populist nomination
aa a secondary affair, a humble auxiliary
to the democratic nomination.'
That sounds fine, but suppose the
situation reversed and Governor Shal-
lenbergeir, nominated on the demo
cratlc ticket and beaten for the popu
list nomination, would the oath "to
abide by the result of the primary and
qualify if elected" be appealed to in
case tns populist nominee called on
him to retire in his favor? Should the
populist dog wag the democratic tail,
or should the democratic dog wag the
rne same point is raised as to a
local Situation presented by the Argus
in which one of the candidates for
nomination in the primary, who re
ceived a minority of the votes, pro
poses, nevertheless, to become an in
dependent candidate. Does the pledge
he took "to abide by the result of the
primary" disqualify blm from accept
ing a petition nomination and running
against the man who beat him out?
If the pledge has any binding force it
would, of course, be equally binding on
the defeated as on the successful
candidate. If this pledge, which was
designed to make majority rule effec
tive, means nothing or is usenforcl
ble, then the primary race is simply a
trial heat, leaving the entries free to
drop Out or run again at their own
The decision in the centuries-old
fisheries controversy between Great
Britain and the United States, while it
gives to the English the one point that
they most desired and contended for,
yet gives to the Americans five out of
seven points and therefore represents
a substantial victory, in a way. In ad
dition to the outcome this presenta
tion of the case to The Hague tribunal
Is a distinct triumph for Senator Elihu
Root, whose six-days speech has been
pronounced the greatest ever made to
this international court of arbitration.
Yet, when the time comes, certain
newspaper enemies of Mr. Root will
caricature him as a mere puppet of the
money powers, willing to deceive their
own readers into the belief, for per
sonal reasons, that he Is not one of the
giant Intellectual forces of the world.
The curtain is now going up on the
final act ot the water works purchase
drama In Omaha. The Water board
has formally ordered the sale of the
$6,500,000 water bonds at 4 per cent.
This will not only provide means for
taking over the water plant under the
judgment of the supreme court, but it
is also very likely to test the temper
of the local money market.
The progress of the recount In

The exhibit of prize politicians at
the State fair does not apparently dis
tract a great deal of attention from
the prize pumpkins and horse trots.
It is not unlikely that had the wind
soarers remained on exhibition the
"wind Jammers" would have been left
entirely in the cold. Perhaps another
year the directors of the State fair
may be able to arrange a piogram for
entertaining visitors without any po
litical side showa.
The organization of the Douglas
county committee for the coming cam-
paign may be taken as sufficient notice j
to the democrat! that the election is
not going to bo permitted to go by de
fault In this county. The republican
party Is Just as militant in Douglas
county as it ever was.
It will perhaps astonish no one to
know that the Bryanltes are getting
more consolation from the so-called
Insurgent victories than anyone else.
This fact ought to convince the real
republicans of the country of the dis
honesty of the democratic position.
One of the encouraging features of
local conditions In Nebraska Is the fact
that the attendance at the State fair
is far beyond any previous experience.
This may be accepted as proof that the
people of Nebraska are worried over
neither crops or politics.

A new method of Identtfh atlon of 'per
son, criminals or otherwise, more stmpio
than the Bertlllon aystem, but equally ef-
fecllve. Is to be tented by the New York po
lice department. The method was developed j
by Prof. Tamassla or tne i nivrr.-ny m
I'ndna, on the pecullarlllt y ot the puttern,
of the veins on the bck of the hand, j
"The arrangement of the veins, Pror.
Tainiuelft claims, is o characteristic of the
individual that It is pot the name In any
two persons, and therefore constitutes the
Wt known means of identification. The
pencial appearance of the vein undergoes
r.o change with advancing age and thev
cannot be altered purposely without In
flicting serious mutilation."
To obtain sharp photograps of the vein
patterns the arms are slightly bent and
the veins marked with a dark pigment.
The veins thfn shove very consplclounly
In the photograph.
Chief Inspector Bunnell of the New York
police department says of the Tiimansw
method: "Its simplicity, Infulllhlllty. and.
most of all, the fact that it cannot be de
stroyed or altered and Is not affected by
age, makes it especially valuable to the
police for the Identification of criminals.
Many measurement? of the Bertlllon t-ys-tem
are affected by age and the thumb
and finger lines may be altered by manual
labor. If the system of Pi of. Ttimastia Is
all that he asserts the police department
will do well to adopt It."
