Democratic candidates and cam
paign managers In Nebraska would
like very much to keep the liquor
question to the fore to the exclusion
of every vital question In which the
people of Nebraska are Interested.
They are trying their best to side-step
every other Issue that Is Involved In
order to make people believe that
nothing else Is st stake In the coming
election but the demand of the sntl
saloontsts for the enactment of a
county option law.
The fact Is, snd we believe the fact
will not be overlooked, that much
larger Issues are at stake. While the
liquor question must, in the very na
ture of things, be settled locally by the
choice of members of the legislature,
the personalities of the candidates, ir
respective of party labels, will have to
be considered In the interest of good
government. The voters must realise,
as most of them already do, that the
democratic ticket Is the corporation
ticket almost from top to bottom.
Ths democratic nominee for gov
ernor was twice elected mayor of
Omaha by the help of the brewers,
liquor dealers and franchlsed corpora
tions. He had previously served on
the State . Board of 1 Transportation
long enough to make himself, solid
with the railroads, and In his present
campaign he has the unanimous back
ing, not only of the brewers and liquor
dealers' organisations, but also of the
railroads and .ther big favor-seeking
The democratic nominee for lieuten
ant governor, who might, If elected,
become governor under certain con
tingencies, was ths corporation bell
wether in the lower house of our late
democratic legislature. The lobby
bunch tried to make him speaker, and
It was not their fault that they failed,
and they are now irylng to make him
presiding officer of the senate in its
next session, where he can be equally
useful to them.
The democratic candidate for rail
way commissioner, .which Is the next
office most serviceable to the corpora
tions, has been belled as a corporation
trusty ever since the days when Tobe
Castor was in the game handling dem
ocratic politics for the railroads.
Doing down the line, the trail of the
corporation serpent can be seen right
through the democratic ticket, and
when it comes to legislative prefer
ences the brewers, tha railroads and
the allied corporations have found
ready lodgment for their creatures
and agents In the democratic column,
which explains why they prefer an
other body of democratic law-makers
to repeat to them the harmless pro
gram of the last.
Eomeleii on Verge of Winter.
The devastating fires that have
wiped out homes and towns along the
Minnesota-Canada boundary have pro
duced want that must be relieved
promptly and adequately, or more
acute suffering will come with the
rigors of winter, which is not fsr off
in that section. Reports indicate ap
palling wretchedness; lives lost,
homes and Industry wiped out; people
without shelter or clothing or food. It
Is a terrible state of affairs and calls
for heroic action. The Canadian
Northern railroad and big lumber
firms are rendering valiant help to
ward carrying people to places of safety
and comfort and preparing to erect
new temporary dwellings. But there
Is the great crisis temporary houses
on the Canadian boundary make poor
defenses for the rigors of Canadian
These recurring conflagrations are
appalling enough to bring some
thought of an attempt to prevent
them. There must be a way at least
of limiting the possibilities of such
disasters. Of course nothing can be
done with great flames during a hur
rlcane, such aa swept this country to
the north, but It !s generally agreed
that even forest fires may be pre
vented, and if they can, then such
catastrophles ss this one, which licks
up whole towns, ought to be subject
to some sort of repressive Influence.
At any rate the end will Justify most
any means employed, even as an ex
periment of prevention.
The Commercial Club.
The ruction stirring the Omaha
Commercial club will prove to be a
good thing If it results, as It promises
to do, in msklng the club more rep
resentative of all the busluess Inter
ests ot Omaha. The Bee has more
than once been criticised tor criticis
ing the Commercial club for misrep
resenting the sentiment of our people.
In former years during the regime of
free passes and rebates the Commer
cial club was generally recognised as
an echo ot railroad headquarters. But
fortunately It has emerged from this
stage, although apparently It has not
yet completely thrown off some of the
methods of transacting business thst
The chief fsult found with the Com
mercial club In these later days has
been that it la almost completely dom
inated by the big wholesalers and Job
bers, giving the retailers and smaller
lines little voice in its proceedings,
and still less attention In its work.
What la wanted Is a Commercial club
that represents, not the railroads as
against the shippers, nor the Jobbers
aa against the retailers, but a club
that includes and truly represents all
the legitimate commercial Interests in
the city and gives them all a propor
tionate say ta its deliberations. What
is wanted Is a club tbst, when it
speaks,, speaks the real views of the
majority of its members and feet
merely ths wishes of throe or four
sell-eeasUtated gpokeetne! U U dees
this, what It says will csrry wetght;
If not. It will have no force.
The Commercial club of Omaha Is
an Institution necessary to Omaha's
growth and business prosperity. It
will contribute much or little toward
that growth and prosperity according
as It Includes all the business elements
In the community and voices their real
sentiments on questions within the
scope of Its srtlon.
Democratio Tariff Cant.
Evidently the big card ot the dem
ocratic campaign Is to be played
against the possibility of further re
vision of the tariff by the republicans,
the purpose obviously being to dis
credit the republicans before the peo
ple. That Is undoubtedly the meaning
of the reported plan of the "Interests"
to kill the entire tariff board propa
ganda In congress and of the circula
tion as campaign material of Champ
Clark's speech delivered In the house
Msy 21. 110, In which he denounced
the tariff board plan and the pres
ident's earnest effort to seeure a per
manent tariff commission, in these

This speech is bslng sent In

ocratic campaign document. In Itself It

tention to defeat. If they can. alt fur
ther revision of the tariff and every
attempt to secure a permanent tariff
commission. At the same time their
plan of campaign Is to denounce the
republicans for not making greater re
ductions In the tariff. And for years
their leaders have been telling the
people that what the country needs is
a permanent tariff commission. But
back of this subtle scheme is the co
operation of the powerful "Interests"
which would be benefited If all re
vision of the tariff were dispensed
with; the interests which the demo
crats serve, while pretending to de
nounce. With this whole plan for sham bat
tle effectively exposed, It will be
strange If the people are deceived by
It For years the popular demand in
this country has been for a non-politi
cal tariff commission, composed of
experts, and, under President Taft, the
first step was taken toward the de
sired end when his tariff board be
came a fact. Now, Just as the work is
getting well under way, comes this
concerted action on the part ot the
democratio party and the "interests"
to stop it.
This is another subject the voter
wants to keep in mind when he goes
to the polls this fall. . Does he desire
to cast his ballot for the republican
nominees, who are pledged, with Pres
ident Taft, to proceed with tariff re
vision; or does he wish to vote for the
party of negation that has agreed to
block all revision that does not pat us
on a free trade basis? -
Where Eooievelt is Unknown.

"Darkest Africa" he was greeted with
lusty cheers from the benighted na
tives, even In the most inaccessible
jungles, and when he departed they
wept because they would see "Bwana
Tumbo" no more. In Egypt, along

where the people simply stand and

-recognise that when he tells them he

It is an unique town and the cor
respondents were very thoughtless in
falling to supply the name of it, for
here is a town that deserves to have
a notch cut for Itself high up on the
scroll of fame. One can only wonder
how placidly the stream of life must
drift down there. Also how the rail
road ever came to pass that way In
the first place.
Colonel Roosevelt probably knows
now thst It Is all a mistake about him
being a world-wide figure.
Bishop Morrison of the Episcopal
church urges that money for missions
be spent first among American ne
groes, then among the oriental heath
ens. That Is what many aggressive
churches sre doing. One of the lead
ing missionary churches spends five
times the amount on home missions
that it does on foreign missions, but
thst Is largely because foreign mis
sions can be conducted for less
xaoaey than home. It Is a matter of
record that these churches most sg-
gresslve abroad are also most Instru
mental in the work In the home field.
Better Trade with Canada.
The Dominion of Canada bought
1188,136,860 worth of merchandise
from other countries in the fiscal yesr
ending in Msrch, 109. Of this
smount 1170, 058,178 worth was
bought from the United States. The
United States, then, supplied 62.20 per
cent of Canada's Imports, a very good
showing of trade. On the other hand
the United 8tates received only 81.18
per cent ot all Canada's exports,
neither as good nor yet very bad.
It is generally believed that reci
procity between these two countries
would vastly promote their trade rela
tions and not only tht, but establish
a system ot mutual benefit by which
each country might increase Its bust
ness at horns as well as abroad. Henry
M. Whitney, writing In the current
Atlantic, brings out this point very
forcibly. He contends that if tariff
barriers were entirely removed manu
facturing enterprises would soon find
their way to the western extremity of
Canada, Just as they have to the west
ern coast of the United States and
that along from the Atlantic to the
Pacific would be way- stations of pow
erful revenue-producing sources like
Milwaukee, St. Paul, Minneapolis, Des
Molnea, Omaha, Kansas City, Denver.
Salt Lake. This chain of trade and
industry would be continuous. Un
doubtedly such development could be
facilitated by a reciprocity arrange
ment, such as President Taft Is seek
ing to effect.
The opposition to this treaty now
seems to come chiefly from Canada,
but there Is some in the United States.
To this Mr. Whitney puts the question
effectively when he says that even if
reciprocity now on broad lines Is not
possible, "Why shouldwe deny our
selves the advantage that would ac
crue to us from at once allowing the
products of Canada's fisheries, farmB.
forests and mines to come here free
of duty?" )
If the Uhlted States, without reci
procity and With unfavorable tariff
barriers, supplies Canada with 58.10
per cent of Its imports and receives
from Canada 38.18 per cent of its ex
ports, the question naturally arises,
how much greater could both of these
ends of trade become under a system
of more friendly and favorable Inter
course? It would not only help com
merce, but it would help develop the
country and establish a stronger mu

A nw type of army ambulanc has b.-en

th summer. Thl Is a two-wheeled ve
hicle, which may be drawn by on or two

Into th country, wher th larger snd
heavier ambulance could not b taken.
This Is th vehicle whloh used to b known
as th "galloping ambulance," but It baa

It has been found In the experiments con
ducted at th camps that the light ambu
lanoe Is destined to serve a tieeful purpose
tn medical department transportation In
th field In tlm of war. It Is probable
that Some of thm will b adopted to meet
the special demand likely to be mads for
that class of ambulanos.
The latest estimate for army subsistence
la based on the cost of th ration at 21
cents. Th appropriation for the current
fiscal year was mad on th calculation of
a ooet of JO. 7 oents aa against 19.66 cents of
th previous year. Th requirement that
the estlmat be submitted fully fourteen
months before th appropriation waa arall
abl for expenditure, necessitated th cal
culation of ost vn longer In adva.no of
th date when It waa to b ud. It waa
found that there waa a steady advenes In
ths price of food and that under ths most
favorable conditions existing the cost was
increased to &.M cents and at 11. 0 cents
up to February, IMS. Ths deficiency ap
propriation of laat year for army subsist
ence Was mad on th basis of a ration
editing 22 cants. That coat has steadily
advanced until it Is now 33 oents. By tha

guilty along with the balance of us.
Hastings Republican: Edgar Howard says
Bryan cannot consistently bolt Dahtman
and support Hitchcock for the United
States senate. Howard contends that
Dahlman stands tor th (home) brewers
and Hitchcock represents the National
Brewera' association which the Columbus
editor takes exception to in th following
words: "Whn It comes to making a
cholc in that direction, I am for the Ne
braska brewers every time as against the
National Brewery association. Stand up
Broken Bow Republican: The democratio
candidate) for offlc find themselve in
rather an embarrassing position politically.
They are politically under obligations to
support the party nominees from the least
to the greatest. But there Is the rub. They
are afraid to deelare themselves for Dahl
man, their candidate for governor, for fear
of loing votes among the antl-Dahlman
crowd. Upon the ether hand, should they
declare themselves against Dahlman they
fear that hi exporters will not support
them. In fact, there docs not seem to be
any excuse for a democratic candidate In
Alma Record: The Record does not ap

ple who brand as boozers, bums and brew
ryhlfellngs every voter who does not
espouse prohibition or county option, for
th reason that we believe every man has
a right to his opinion without being called
a big hard name. Such methods if con
tinued will create a big silent vote In
favor of th opposing candidate. The Rec

Hastings Republican (dem.): A certain
bartender well known in Hasting says
h will not vote for Dahlman. He gave
th reason for this deolslon that In his
opinion the election of the Omaha mayor
would precipitate a campaign for state
wide prohibition and that In his estimation
It would be safer for every saloonkeeper
In Nebraska to take chances on Aldrlch
and county option rather than to lect
Dahlman with all his radicalism on the
liquor question. This bartender la also a
democrat and he thinks the only sane
course for the democratic party In Ne
braska Is to turn Dahlman own and the
member of the party make a strenuous
effort to elect the congressmen and turn
their votes on governor to Aldrlch. His
logic is that a defeat of the party on gov
ernor would In the long run prove a vic
tory for th party, for It Is his belief that
If Dahlman Is elected the party would be
put out of commission In this state for
years to com. We give thea facta as

I have a humble longing that has nevar
A longing 1 have striven !n vain to bury

I want to take u ride once mora, when

Behind a little JnKgtng horxe In some old

At such a pace I cannot tell a brown field

I want to ambit on at peace, unheeding

And watch with Joy an ancient hore fllrk

I never see a landscape now thst Is not
In gale of wind and clouds of dust be

The pensive sows sre galloping, the hens

If anything seem peaceful I know It will
not last. .
I have no great ambition and I don't de

This my plebeian longing, without qulhbl
I want that shabby buggy and I want that
