Avert the Strike.
In the initio between the railroads
and their locomotive engineers '"e
public interest demands a peaceful ad
justment. Whatever else the parties
to the dispute may do, they should
avoid a strike. The engineers say
they have submitted the proposition
of a strike to their members and ex
pect It to be ordered by a popular vote
on the ground thai all else has been
donn to effect a settlement. The rail-j
roads contend that the engineers havei
not exhausted their resources for
peace and there the matter haugs.
It is little different from any other
labor controversy when It comes to the
mere matter of selfish interest. Each
sltle claims It Is right and the other is
wrong, but neither side seems to be
especially disturbed over the larger
consideration of public safety and con
venience. A locomotive engineers'
strike would be a disastrous affair and
nothing should be left undone to pre
vent It. It would not only tie up
commerce and trade, it would Jeopar
dize life, Itself. It will not do for
either side to assert that such a crisis
cannot or should not be averted.
With the election off our hands, the
people generally will te disposed to
get down to business, and they will be
in no humor for a strike of such mag
nitude as this might become. Nor
will they then stop to consider what
the wages or conditions of employment
of the men on the one side may be, or
what the rates or earnings of the rail
roads on the other side are. They
will be driven to the point of viewing
the situation from their own larger
Interest, Just as the disputants see It
from their narrow viewpoint.
The Pension Increase.
With the steady thinning out of the
ranks' of the civil war veteran, the
average Individual pension Increases
and Uncle Sam loses none of his sense
of obligation to these grand old
heroes. In the last fiscal year the
number of pensioners has decreased
25,000, but the average annual value
of each pension has Increased more
than $2 over what it was the previous
year. The aggregate amount paid out
for pensions, naturally, is less.
This government has always set a
fine example In its treatment of the
men who have offered their lives in its
defense. It has never failed to do for
them all that within the bounds of
reason It could do, and now as the de
pendence of these old soldiers and
their widows increases with age the
federal government is steadily increas
ing its pensions to them. The amount
of its pension roll at the close of the
last fiscal year was $158,332,391.
Of course, not all the pension roll Is
for soldiers of the civil war, for de
pendent Spanish-American war veter
ans are being taken care of, but the
greater portion goes to the civil war
heroes and their families. This gov
ernment has paid out hundreds of
millions of dollars for pensions. Besides
thus acknowledging a debt of grati
tude It owed the men of the various
wars that have been necessary to pre
serve the nation's integrity, it teaches
a strong lesson in the virtues of patri
otism which has its own Influence on
the lives of the young generations who
are to be the patriots of the future.
It Is not placing a premium on war
except as war becomes the last re
course in the righteous struggle for
national honor and credit.
Although not very material to the
issues, the answer given by Mr. Bryan
In his Auditorium address when inter
rupted by an awkward question lllus
trates the kind of pettifogging that
great man sometimes indulges in.
"Who carried the electoral vote of
Nebraska to Washington In 1896?"
was the interrogation.
"It was the democratic father
of a republican brewer," yelled Mr.
When he Bald this, however, Mr.
Bryan knew that the democratic
father was the founder of the brewery
and the active head of the brewery at
the time Mr. Bryan procured for him
the honor of becoming the electoral
messenger for Nebraska. He knew
further that he was the democratic
father of several sons, also democrats,
who had succeeded to the parental
business and that all of the sons were
at that very moment enlisted for the
democratic candidate for governor.

No Politics in Tariff Eoard.
The man who applied to the pres
ident for a position on the tariff
board because of his service to the
party probably Is convinced that Pres
ident Taft was in earnest when he
originally announced that this board
as to he entirely divorced from poli
tics. His answer to the applicant Is
that party politics, service or prefer
ment is not an element of considera
tion in connection with the tariff
board and that under o circum
stances will he permit it to become
It is possible to give offense by
plain, emphatic speaking sometimes,
but offense had better be given if
necessary in such a case. The one ob
ject at which the whol6 plan of the
tariff board alms would be defeated
by making any appointment upon a
political basis. The president's action
ought to go far toward winning new
friends for his principle and inspir
ing general confidence a it. Much
practical good may be acconipllthed
through the agency of a non-political
tariff board, in ado up of men with ex
pert knowledge of su h work. It Is

nothing but efficiency has any right
to be considered as an element of
The opponents to the tariff board
Idea havo urged that the experience
of the members during the summer In
failing to get us close to the actual rec
ords of some large business Interests
as they would have liked is an argu
ment against it as compared with the
old system of gatbeiisg data for tar
iff legislation. Hut is it? The charge
has been made that It has been sus
piciously easy for certain politicians
to get at these records, but how do we
know that tho data they got Is the
data we wanted? That Is just the
trouble, and where much of the mis
chief in tariff tinkering comes in
certain interests are only too accessi
ble to certain politicians. These ex
perts will probably get the informa
tion, in time, and it will be Informa
tion that congress probably never had
laid down to It before.
After the candidates were nominated
on the various tickets'the campaign in
Nebraska lugged for several weeks.
Old-timers shook their heads omi
nously and declared that politics were
no longer what they used to be, coup
ling the remark with regiets that the
proceedings were proving so tame. But
when the political pot once reached the
boiling point, it boiled all over, and
therevwas no longer complaint about
apathy and lack of ginger.
The campaign which we have Just
passed through in Nebraska was more
like the old-time campaign than for
years. It was one-sided in me matter
of money resources, the democrats be
ing financed from an unlimited treas
ury furnished by the brewers and
liquor dealers, while the republicans
were compelled to work on the hard
time basis in a high-cost-of-livlng era.
On the other hand, the candidates re
sorted to personal canvassing, grldlron
ing the state with automobile tours and
bringing the personal equation home
to the individual voter. The charac
ters and public records of the candi
dates have been handled without
gloves by the newspapers even moro
than the pronouncements of the party
platforms, and If any one entitled to
vote in Nebraska remained ignorant
that a political campaign was in prog
ress he must have been enjoying a Rip
Van Winkle sleep.
At any rate, the future historian will
disregard the complaint that the 1910
campaign in Nebraska was in any way
lacking In ginger.
. The California Spirit
Californlans are putting their native
spirit to good effect In their effort to
obtain tthe official Panama exposition.
Appraently every man, woman and
child in the state is engaged In the
movement. Private correspondence
contains a word of boost for it; busi
ness houses have letter heads, post
cards or advertising matter bearing
upon it and the big fruit and raisin
packing industries send out similar
matter to every corner of the country.
Here is a great state united for one
object. That alone ,to say nothing of
the argument offered, had its effect.
All petty ejalousles and rivalries are
forgotten while this fight is on. Los
Anceles has entirely lost sight of its
determination to wrest from San Fran
cisco the honor of being the state
metropolis while San Francisco is
struggling with New Orleans for this
Here Is a wholesome example for
other states to follow. In older states
where country communities are ar
rayed against the large city or cities,
the example might be taken home.
In states where it Is anything to down
the emtropolis, the California spirit
should be emulated. Does anyone
imagine that the benefits accruing
from this exposition, if it goes to the
I Golden aGte, can possibly be confined
to San Francisco? Does anyone pre
sume that they will not overflow Into
every portion of the state? And Just
so the benefits or advantages that
come to the metropolis of any state
like those of the middle west or far
west they are bound to be felt in
some proportion all over the state
What helps the city cannot but help
the town or country and vice versa.
It is sheerest folly, the most short
sighted policy, for people to imagine
otherwise. It Is not worth while to
stop and try to weigh the relative good
that conies to the city from the coun
try. Intelligent people know that their
prosperity is mutual, that the way to
build up one Is to build up the other.
As showing how the times change,
the story is told by local democrats
that W. J. Bryan, a fortnight before
election, wrote to a democratio candi
date for congress in Nebraska offering
his services on the stump in the candi
date's district. The candidate replied
over long distance telephone, request
ing Mr. Bryan not to come. Here is
a man who three times stood as the
bead of bis party in the nation, three
times ran as its nominee for the presi
dency, who for fourteen years has
gone up and down this land as the
mouthpiece of democracy, asked not
to come into a country congressional
district and make speeches for fear of
defeating the democratic nominee.
And it is not a case of a prophet being
without honor save in Ms own home,
either, for democrats in Indiana, lows
and other states rejected his profered
"help." The question la. Will they
on the next turn be sending to Hryan
(Jovernor Sliallenberger has ap
pointed his private secretary to fill the
vacancy on the Stale Railway commis
sion. The governor seems to be ob
sessed with the Idea that all the public
patronage now at his disposal Is his
own private property to be distributed
to relatives and personal friends.
When the voting machine clicks at
the rate of one a minute it is a safe
guess that a lot of straight party tick
ets are being recorded and that the
assertion that the machine operates
against scratching Is being vindicated.
Omaha is now on the home Btretch
for yearly records for building per
mits, real estate transfers, bank clear
ings and postoffice receipts. It is a
safe bet that 1910 will give us record
breakers In every one of these.

INCnHASKU RAILROAD EAHN1NUS
Facts that Contradict the roverty
I'leaa of Managers.
The Bureau of Railway News and Sta
tistics Is not likely to exaggerate the pres
ent prosperity of the transportation com
panies, because they are now protesting
that their expenses have Increased so much
that they must Increase their freight
charges or stop Improvements. But Its
comparative statement of earnings and ex
penses shows that the railroads have just
closed a much better year that the year
1907, which, closing- June SO, more than three
months before the panic. Was a year of ex
ceptional prosperity. The bureau report
observes that changes in the methods of
accounting wake" the comparison of 1910
with 1907 Inexact, but the general results
are oomparable, and minor discrepancies
cannot very materially affect the value of
The total operating revenue for $3,779,-
247,000 In the year ending June SO, 1910, and
J2.589.106.000 In 1907, an increase of $190,141,290.
The total operating expenses were $1,841,126,-
000 In the last year and $1,748,515,000 In
1W7, an Increase of $92,009,003. This leaves
the Increase in net Income from operation
$87,681,237, against which there is an in
crease of about $23,000,000 In taxes. Tills
makes the net Increase in net operating In
come $76,26,000. The average mileage
operated Increased about 9.0U0. The aver
age earnings per mile of road were $11,742
the last year and $11,3S3 In 1907. The ratio
of expenses to revenue in the last year
was fri.24 per cent, and In 1907 It was 67.53
per cent. As compared with the highly
prosperous year 1907, therefore, there was
an increase in net opt-raung income, in
earnings per mile, In net operating in
come per mile, and a reduction In the per
centage of expenses to revenues. These are
the facts upon which the railroad com
panies are Insisting that It Is absolutely
necessary that they should be allowed to
raise their charges.
Comparing the last year with 1907, freight
earnings Increased $H7,000, and passenger
earnings $00,000,000. Tha Increase In freight
alone Is nearly equal to the Increase In
operating expenses and taxes.

the superintendent of a large office em
ploying many clerks. "We've always made
it a rujle to have spring water on tap
for drinking purposes, and under normal

naturally expect. But now It's very differ

morning's thirst until they reach the
office, where they can have bottled water.
It seems as if every one of them drank
at least two glasses soon after arrival.
They also quench their evening thirst out
of our bottles the last thing before going

Every now and then Judge Muiqueen
makes a pertinent comment on the ad
visability of those having eyea and using

correspondent of tho Clnclnnattl Times-
Star. He especially directs his attention
toward the magistrates on the city bench,
most of them are so bound with the throngs
of custom that will all the will In the world
to deal justly they often make serious mis
takes. "I hud a colored woman before me
today aa a complaining witness," said Judge
Muluueen. "She had a man held for
trial by a city magistrate, on tha charge

Constitutional lawyers have fallen Into
the background. We have relegated them
to the supreme court, without asking our
selves where we are to find tljem when
vacancies occur In that great tribunal.
A new type of lawyers has been created;
and that new type has come to be the
prevailing type. Lawyers have been sucked
into the maelstrom of the new business
system of the country. That system Is
highly technical and highly specialized.
It is divided Into distinct sections and
provinces, each with particular legal prob
lems of Hb own. lawyers, therefore, every
where that business has thickened and
had a large development, have become ex
perts in some special technical field. They
do not practice law. They do not handle
the general, miscellaneous Interests of so
cletv. They are not general counsellors
of right and obligation. They do not bear
the relation to tha business of their neigh
borhoods that the fumlly doctor bears to
the health of the community in which he
lives. They do not concern themselves
with the universal aspects of society. The
family doctor is himself giving place to
a score of specialists; and so is also what
one might call the family solicitor. Law
yers are specialists, like all other men
And so society has lost something oi
ls losing Jt something which It Is very
serious to lose In an age of law, when
society depends more than ever before upon
the lawgiver and the courts for Its struct
ural steel, the harmony and co-ordination
of Its parts, Its convenience, Its perman
ency and its facility. In gaining new
functions, in being drawn into modern
business Instead of standing outside of it.
In becoming Identified with particular In
terests instead of holding aloof and Im
partially advising all Interests, the lawyer
has lost his old function. Is looked askance
at In politics, must disavow special en
gagements if he would have his counsel
heeded In matters of common concern. So
ciety has suffered a corresponding loss
at least American society ha.'. It has lost
Its one-time feeling for law as the basis
of Its peace, Its progress, Its prosperity.
Lawyers are not now regarded as the me
diators of progress.
One Rar of Hope.
There Is one ray of hope for us. Only
a few days after choice bacon touched
40 cents in Omaha, tha price of hogs In
Cleveland dropped 70 cents on account of
tha hugeness of tha corn crop, upon which
the weather cannot now havo any per
ceptible effect. If tho delicacies remain
high, those fundamentals of tha simple
life, hog and hominy, will be within our
reach for tha remainder of tho crop year.

Preference In Finance.
These Jokes about the sudden rloh
Are funny, to bo sure.
But I'd rather be a sudden rich
Than be a sudden poor!
I know not if my absent friends
Are In all things sincere,
Their actions are beyond my ken,
Their words I cannot hear.
I know not If mere written words
Are trutiiful or deceiving;
But God, who gave these friends is true
And here's believing.
I know not If the plans I make
Will come to glad fruition:
I know not if each step 1 take
Will better my condition;
And, therefore. I In doubt and pain
Go blindly, feebly groping;
But God can see and God is love.
An here's hoping.
This world Is like a forest dense
Where me poor mortals may
Get puzzled on directions and
We sometimes lose our way.
But near the path that leads aright,
An unseen Hand keeps strewing,
Some kindly deeds for us to do,
Bo here's doing.
