Taffi Field Day.
President Taft called Saturday field
day for his Canadian reciprocity plan.
It was a rather happy term. The plan
seems to have fared better than Its
author might bave expected. In addi
tion to his own public speeches di
rectly In its behalf, two other speeches
were made that give significant In
terest, and doubtless, new strength to
the president's demand of congress.
They were the speeches of former
President Roosevelt at Grand Rapids
and Senator Cummins at New York.
Both came out In favor of the Cana
dian treaty. x
Senator Cummins wanted it dis
tinctly understood that he had not
Just been won over to the principle,
but that he had been advocating it
for ten years and that, therefore, there
was no warrant for suspecting that he,
because of his prominence in opposi
tion to many of the Taft measures,
would be against this plan for reci
procity. It Is quite probable that
those who are working to complete
this arrangement will be entirely will
ing to concede the Iowan's point and
waive all contention on the subject of
priority of advocacy, In order to get
the advantage of his Influence for the
measure. There is no gainsaying the
value of such influent. It is most
natural to think that li may reflect
the attitude of other Insurgents.
Colonel Roosevelt linked up the
reciprocity plan with the demand for
direct election of senators in his
speech, but he was nonetheless fav
orable to reciprocity. Nor will that
combination likely Injure the treaty
proposition. On the other hand It Is
almost certain to aid It materially. The
demand for the popular election of
senators Is a strong one, whose suc
cess Is Inevitable and whose strength,
under such circumstances, Is sure to
lend power to the other question. It
is little wonder that the president felt
elated and referred to Saturday as
the field day of h.. pet plan, finding
himself supported by these influential
bands and that, too, when the house
committee had favorably reported on
Archbishop Ryan's Greatness.
The late Archbishop Ryan of Phila
delphia "was considered the greatest
of the line of bishops and archbishops
that have occupied the Episcopal see
of Philadelphia since its erection in
1808." That is a worthy distinction
to survive a man. Instinctively, one
turns to his life for the essence of
this greatness and finds it in a love
that embraced all mankind. He has
been "on friendly terms with men of
all religious denominations." There
Is the key to his greatness. His heart
and soul and mind were too big for
sectarian seclusion. He was a devout
and true Catholic, first and last, and It
may" be believed that It was this very
devotion and self-satisfaction with
his own faith that made' him,' first
willing, then anxious, then irresistibly
bound to go out into1 the wide domain
of world activities and extend the
helping hand to others of different
A life of more consecrated piety
could scarcely be lived than the one
that wtnt out in the benediction, "I
wish to be dissolved . and be with
Christ; God bless you all.", lie was in
the world, but not of it; a man of
tremendous powers wielded for the
good of others. In his liberal succor
to humanity without regard to what
creed it espoused he did more for
his own church than he possibly could
have done by withholding the peculiar
talents nature had given him from all
save those who believed as he believed
on the mere matter of religious wor
ship. This is why Archbishop Ryan was
the "greatost of that line of bishops
and archbishops that have occupied
the Philadelphia see" in the last cen
tury. The dominant lesson of his life
should be to teach other priests and
preachers of whatsoever church or de
nomination that before every creed
comes the call of Christ's humanity,
which It Is not possible to gather
within the walls of any single set of
prescribed rules of religious thought
and worship. .

Greatest Tribute to Lincoln.
The greatest tribute that this na
tion has t-r can pay to Abraham Lin
coln, whose annlverssry occurred Sun
day, Is the homage that in every heart
grows stronger and more true each
year. The principles of high resolve,
of noble deeds, of freedom for all
mankind and every righteous cause
are more firmly Intrenched today than
they have ever been. This is a monu
ment more enduring than lofty statues
of marble or stone. His spirit lives
and thrives, his name and memory are
venerated alike and the world sees
more clearly now than It ever saw
that what he lived for was what It
needed most and that his homely pre
cepts were not the guiding impulses of
a day and generation only, but the
maxims for posterity. The shrine of
Lincoln never loses, but gains love
from the masses as the years roll on
Nor is it Idle sentiment that makes all
this so, but rather a reason based on
a truer judgment of his words and
works than the close perspective of
contemporary criticism could have
The announcement from the head-
quarters of the Harriman roads of a
tremendous program of extension and
betterment the coming year has at
traded the attention it deserves. It
is the most portentous utterance re
cently heard and comes at a time
when Its Influence will be Immeasura
bly potent for good. After all the
rapid advancement in material growth
during the last few years, it might
naturally be expected that a lull
would ensue. Many of the most far-
sighted among business men have
made calculations that include tem
porary cessation in activity. This
feeling was fostered to some extent
by the various "bear" stories set afloat
during the debate on the rate ques
tion, insinuating, If not actually sug
gesting, that the railroads would
abandon all projects for extension un
less they were granted the privilege
they sought. The management of the
great Harriman system has apparently
not been greatly swayed by these re
ports. The authoritative news that
the projects which have matured for
the improvement of a great commer
cial highway between Omaha and San
Francisco, over which passes the far
larger part of transcontinental traffic,
are to be carried out with all expedi
tion. Aside from any other effect,
the direct result of this will be that
other transcontinental lines will be
forced to make improvements or they
will be put still further away from
possible competition 'than they now
are. Another effect is bound to be
felt in states through which the Union
Pacific lines run, for the service to Its
territory will be Increased as the ca
pacity or the road Is Improved. In
every aspect the action of the Union
Pacific in pushing forward Its pro
gram is one of encouragement and
ought to be of great satisfaction to the
people of the west.
The Pnblio and Disease. '
The Rockefeller Institute of Medi
cal Research publishes the encourag
ing statement that its anti-meningitis
serum has proven successful through
out the world. This la good news. It
will encoilrage the campaign against
other diseases such -as tuberculosis
and typhoid fever. It marks splendid
progress in the scientific conservation
of human life. It is a matter of spe
cial pride and congratulation to us
that America is taking so large a part
in this great cause of humanity.
The ultimate and complete success
of the crusade against tuberculosis
especially depends, however, upon In
telligent public co-operation with the
measures adopted and put forth by
medical men. More than that. It de
pends upon theJaltbful help of Indi
viduals. Every person must be made
to know and feel the Importance of
precautionary measures. These dis
eases, tuberculosis, typhoid fever and
others, are spread through careless
ness. The headway that has been

The Correct Solution.
CENTRAL CITY. Neb., Feb. 12. -To the
Editor of The Uee: I wish to advocate
the solution of the liquor question without
resort to civil war, to which the present
contest seems tending. There are two
classes on both sides of 'the contest: First,
the coot-headed class, who are accumulat
ing money on both sides. Second, the
dupes of the cool heads, who are playing
"catspaw" on both sides.
The cool heads are exciting the "cats
paws" on either side, and the "catspaws,"
besides "paying the fiddler," will get
It would be funny if we could get the
cool heads on both sides to meet and
fight It out. But that is not their trick.

whole business Is leading to war, and we
old soldiers know best what that means-

ernment and prolonging the atrlfe ao they
may sell more at a higher price.,' .'

He stands aa the best type of modern de
mocracy. Even republicans respect him
I was all through "bleeding Kansas" and
the civil war, and 1 shudder to think of
my aons having such an experience.
I appeal to th wiser and better people
of both parties to step forward and com
pel the extreme "hot-air" and "hot-liquor"
men to go away back and sit down and
