There is a little chapter in Amer

help to Mexico in its task of recon
struction. None of the other steel kings have
come forward to bet John W. Gates
that he was not telling the truth about
those inside deals. .

would not be the real thing unless;
preceded by the usual debate on,
"What shall she wear?"

Mr. Morgan objeetedt
Now that Mexico Is about to reor
ganize its government and may be
open to suggestions, perhaps an emi
nent Nebraskau might get a few of his
paramount Issues adopted.
Gates says he raised the ante on
Tennessee Coal and Iron to 90; Gary
says he raised it to 100 to save an
overloaded banking firm. It is to be
hoped there will be honor enough in
this deal for all.
PresldentTaft's action in the cases
of Bankers Morse and Walsh ought to
give a tip to some of our governors,
who too often forget the fellow who
has not violated the law is entitled to
sympathy as much as the one who has.
Automobile registration numbers in
Nebraska promise to pass the 20,000
mark before the year is up. If all of
these new numbers represent live, go
ing machines In active use in a strictly
agricultural state with a census popu
lation of only 1,200,000, our farmers
must be going some.
Madero, thus far, is the only
avowed candidate for the presidency
of Mexico, but as the election will
not be held until October the others
have ample time to enter the rare.
Generaf Reyes, Povlsonal President
de la Barra and Senor Llmantour are
expected to get in. If they do, no ele
ment in the republic need complain for
lack of representation. Madero will
staud for the forces that overthrew
Diaz; Reyes will represent the con
servatives, while the voters who are
not classed with either extreme may
find a reasonable choice between de
la Barra and Llmantour.
Of these four men, Judging from
their public records, Madero would
seem to be the least available, from
a foreign, as well as domestic stand
point. He was the csndldate defeated
by Dlas last year and the leader of
the revolution. What he has done
could have been done by any other
man who was similarly inspired. He
rallied the antl-Dlas sentiment and
struck the government at the psyco
loglcal moment and it toppled. It was
not inherent power or greatness in
Madero that did it. In fact, Madero
has not shown that quality. He did
not show it at Juarez; he did not
show it at any other crucial point in
the insurrection. He has not im
pressed the world as a man of great
administrative ability, who could do
as much in the upbuilding of the gov
ernment as he did, even, In its de
struction and his election probably
would mean new trouble for Mexico.
Reyes is a great military force. Be
yond that it is questionable if his
powers are distinctive, and, while
great military powers will be needed
by the reorganized government of
Mexico, Reyes undoubtedly could be
of greater assistance as the advlBer
to the president in a military ca
pacity head of the army than as
president. It must be remembered
that he left Mexico a year ago at
Diaz's suggestion in response to a
very decisive outbreak against him
and that since his return he has been
able to rally all his old followers to
As former ambassador to the
United States and a force in effecting
peace, de la Barra would be a useful
man at the helm. His Influence
abroad would be positive. He prob
ably oould command confidence at
But of the, four men now before the
country, Senor Llmantour would be
the most acceptable so far as the out
side world is concerned, but that is
not the world that is going to name
Mexico's president. He is the man in
whom the countries and private cap
italists that believed in Diaz tied to.
His advice has guided Mexico more
than Is generally known. He was a
directing force, It will be remembered,
in the recent crisis and. history doubtt
less will show that his hand was In
strumental In bringing about what
has thus far transpired in the Interest
of peace. When it comes to presi
dential caliber, Llmantour, with such
a man as Reyes at the head of the
army, would be regarded as the best
fitted in all Mexico. In fact, it has
been often said that it was Llmantour
and not Diaz, in the latter's declining
years, who ruled the republic
G&tes and Gary.
While Judge Gary of the Steel
trust is advocating government con
trol and publicity of great corpora
tions the house investigating commit
tee is trying to discover the exact
facts relating to the absorption by the
United .States Steel corporation of the
Tennessee Coal & Iron company. It
is confronted in its search by the con
flicting testimony of John W. Gates
and Judge Gary. Either man, no
doubt, could give the committee all
the information necessary, yet it finds
itself so completely at sea between
them that it has concluded to call
Such experiences as this tend to dis
credit sincerity of the big corporation
men for franker and more open re
lations with the government What
is needed is public confidence in the
integrity of business and confidence
between business and the government.
And that is impossible so long as the
corporation magnates choose to
preach and not practice it
"What we want" says Judge Gary,
"is some responsible and official de
partment of the government to whom
we can go and say, 'what prices can we
charge and Just what can we do?' "
Yet how is it that when a congres
sional committee, trying to get at the
bottom of a single corporation trans
action, gets diametrically opposite
statements as to the vital facts from
two of the men who participated in
What's the Matter with Kansas?
Even the sunflowers nodded when
Will Allen White asked, "What is the
matter with Kansas," politically, and
since then the state has been burning
up with restless energy to leap into
the forefront of everything that
looked like a political reform. But
now that same question is pro
pounded as to Kansas' indifference to
the good roads movement It has
failed to Join with other states in this
grest advance enterprise. Its reac
tlonarylsm is difficult to explain.
But Kansas is not atone in its back
wardness. Its sister state, Nebraska,
is also behind the procession. So
when they go to propound the ques
tion as to Kansas, they might also
ask, "What is the matter with Ne
braska?" Perhaps no state in the
union has more to gain from good
roads, or could have them with so
little outlay of money and time. Our
natural roads are highly adapted to
modern Improvement. Our level
country would make road-bulldlng
along the lines of the "good roads
movement' easy and not costly. Yet
our people have failed thus far to do
anything concertedly in that direc
tion. Good roads wield such a wide and
diversified Influence that no state can
afford to neglect Its opportunities to
build them. They are largely eco
nomic, since they tend to lessen the
cost of transportation, by facilitating
travel and bringing the country and
town, or the producer and consumer,
nearer together. This in turn means
enhanced values of land and larger
revenues to every farmer per every
acre of his farm. Many people fall to
comprehend all this in) their view of
the good roads movement, seeing only
the pleasure side of the question. It
has, of course, that side; It would
make travel for pleasure much more
delightful, but that, after all, is the
least of the considerations.
The Smartest Ever.
"This was by all odds the smartest
thing I ever did in my life."
So writes General Frederick Funs
ton in the first of a series of auto
biographical papers referring to a cer
tain incident In his military career.
What do you think he was boasting
about when he wrote it?
Why it was the fact that while wait
ing in San Francisco to be ordered to
the Philippines he met bis wife and
married her then and there before
If every man could and would truth
fully say that getting married was by
all odds the smartest thing he ever did
In his life, no one would ever ask the
question, Is marriage a failure?
Travel as a Disease.
Inveighing against travel as a dis
ease which should be stamped out, an
anonymous writer in one of the cur
rent magazines declares the mania for
travel to be "the great epidemic of the
modern world." wasteful of time,
disastrous to the places visited, and
most unbeautlful in all of its effects.
To the lust for travel he ascribes all
sorts of unworthy motives. "We
travel," we are told, "because we have
the money; because it is the fashion;
because we wish to compare other
lands with ours, probably to the dis
advantage of both. We travel for all
reasons except good ones; we are, In
short, the victims of a disease. We fall
to resize what unlovely spectacles, as
average human beings, we represent
when uprooted from our native soil.
In our own place we do very well;
abroad we display our defects and hide
our virtues." "Globe-trotting" par
ticularly is decried as scandalous, and
that the person in whom the disease
has assumed this virulent form should
not be permitted to spread the in
fection, Is pronounced a crime against
society. There is much more along
the same line, picturesquely expressed,
to Impress us with the vlclousness of
travel and its uselessness for good.
All of which we submit is interest
ing and entertaining, yet, like most
exaggerated criticisms, far over-shoots
the mark because what it bits at is
not the indulgence of the ordinary
prudent person in travel, but the over
indulgence ot the travel-infected zealot
who keeps on the go just to be
going, and for no other object Travel,
like every recreation or dissipation,
may be over-done, and travel to ex
cess is apt to demoralize and stupify
quite as much as failing to travel at
all. If travel is a disease, it is one
whose outbreak and recurrence we
may welcome if only we do not be
come a slave to it as to the drug habit.
If travel is a disease, it is a disease
we would all like to have In a mild
form periodically, but should do
everything to prevent it from becom
ing malignant. If travel is "the great
epidemic of the modern age," we could
not escape It if we would, and would
not if we could.
Why So Much Crime T
The prevalence of crime is agitat
ing the country. Philosophers and
criminologists are busy offering the
ories and remedies, but crime goes
on. The Independent, it seems to us,
comes near hitting the mark when It
says: "The American public regards
crime lightly. It is, in fact amazingly
indifferent to crime and its preven
tion." If this were not true; If, on the other
hand, the American public, were
amazingly keen to scent crime and its
cause, would it not soon, by the ex
ercise ot all the greafpowers at its
command, bring abtfut a diminution
But this popular Indifference,
which is too often expressed in Jury
verdicts, is not alone to blame, we
think. The lax manner in which we
treat crime and criminals, the maud
lin sentiment bestowed upon the lat
ter, are largely to blame for the pres
ent situation. In the first place, it
will not be denied that our lawyers
and courts make too much out of the
law's technicalities and use the law,
itself, as a shield instead of a weapon
upon the lawless. This makes con
viction of crime extremely difficult.
Then, even after conviction, the crim
inal, no matter how wanton or con
firmed he may be, too frequently
escapes just punishment by means of
a pardon or parole at the bands of
some executive who lacks backbone
enough to enforce the law.
This weakening of the criminal pro
cedure and this undoing of legal de
crees invites crime and encourages
criminals. We make too much over
what we call the "problem" of crime.
It is not so much a problem, as it Is
a simple example In subtraction. Take
away from criminal trials the overdo
ing of the technicality and Jury man
ipulation and take away from the
prison the abuso of executive clem
ency and you have the answer to a
large part of this situation.
The New Spirit of Patriotism.
Patriotism we call tue love of coun
try and a patriot one who loves and
upholds his country. The defnltlon
implies conflict offense aud defense
Naturally we think of war and patriot
Ism together. We have In our history
some sterling patriots who never saw
war, but most of those we lionize de
fended their country on the battlefield.
Today we are trying to put war
aside and substitute peace. This In
volves a new, and we may well be
lieve, a better and broader conception
of patriotism. This new conception, 'jr
spirit, of patriotism is a Jeep passion
for social as well as legal Justice, a
zeal for the rights of man and man.
One who has done a good deal to fos
ter fthe new conception, has termed t
the "square deal."
But even under this new arbitrament
of peace, conflicts still reign, end there
is ample offense to summon men to
the defense of their country. This of
fense may be none the less ilolert
because It works in more subtle" vays.
The forces of evil often find the linos
of least resistance along which they
always work. These forces are very
busy today obtruding themselves to
impede progress, social and legal, and
thwarting Justice by a thousand dif
ferent methods. No man need fall to
become a patriot, therefore, for want
of war to assert his deep passion for
the cause of his country. He may
easily find more opportunities on
every , side than he can possibly em
brace. He will. If he keeps a keen look
out, see the enemy in a hundred dif
ferent forms rising up to attack him
and his countrymen. He will find
him in politics, in business, in society,
even In religion selfishness, dis
honesty, mountebanklem and the like.
Patriotism is nothing but the concrete
form of the simple elements of every
day, sincere individual life, and Just
in proportion as we need it more to
day than ever, so the call for it is
What Rnsiia Has Conceded.
Under pressure of persistent diplo
matic prodding from Washington Rus
sia has finally condescended to ob
serve a part of its treaty of 1832 with
this country, giving the "rights of resi
dence and travel" in the czar's domain
to American citizens. It has agreed
that American Jews, whom It hereto
fore excluded, may travel in Russia
"on legitimate business."
Some of the exultation Indulged In
over our "great diplomatic triumph"
is Justified. Our government at Wash
ington has achieved by gentle means
what it might have sought by the more
drastic measure of severing diplomatic
relations With Russia. That, to be
sure, would have been an extreme po
sition to take, for it would have In
volved much more than merely this
right guaranteed to a certain class of
our people under a treaty. On the
other hand, however, it should be re
membered that we have still gained
only a part of what is our due. We
have been able to take one step In the
right direction, but we have a good
distance yet to travel before reaching
the terminus of our rights.
It is shameful that our government
has submitted to such indignity from
a country like Russia so long as it did
and it should not stop short of com
plete victory in this case. Russia's
excuse is that the rights granted us
under our treaty are subject and sub
ordinate to her local laws, which foi
bid Jews to enter that country, and
that these "sacred" laws must exclude
American citizens if they happen to be
Jews, despite all treaty agreements.
But suppose Russia's race prejudice
were to run against the Irish, or the
German, or the Italian, or any other
class of our people. We should not
tolerate discrimination against any
part of our American citizenship, es
pecially on religious lines. We can bet
ter afford to terminate diplomatic re
lations with Russia rather than ac
quiesce. That eminent organ of enlighten
ment and reform, Collier's Weekly,
figuring on the possibility of the demo
crats capturing the next United States
senate, and conceding that they will
hold their own, declares that in order
to gain control "they must in addi
tion, win five republican seats. The
ones that are the most vulnerable are
supposed to be Briggs, New Jersey;
Brown, Nebraska; Gamble, South Da
kota; Guggenheim, Colorado; Cullom,
Illinois, and Frye, Maine." How came
Collier's to use the word "vulner
able?" les, and how came it to in
elude Brown of Nebraska?

FATHER LEADS THEWAY.
John Talman In Progressive Printer.
Tears and years ago, when I
Wis jut a little lad,
An' after school hours used to work
Around the farm with dad,
I used to be so worried out
When eventide was come,
That I got kinder anxloua-Uke
About the Journey home.
But dad, he used to lead the way;
An' once in a while turn 'round an' say
60 cheerln'-llke, so tender: "Come!
Com on, my son, you're nearly home!"
That ailers used to help me some,
An' so I follered father home.
I'm old an' gray an' feeble now,
An' trlmbly at the knee.
But life seems Just the same today
As then It seemed to me,
For I am still so wearied out
When eventide Is come.
An' still get kinder anxlous-llke
About the journey home.
But still my Father leads the way.
An' once In a while I hear him say,
So cheerln'-llke, so tender: "Comet
Come on, my son, you're nearly home!"
An' same as then, that helps me some.
An" so I'm follerin' Father home.

you then realize how often it is
used, how little returns you re

be remedied by using it as part
pay for a Real Live Piano, one
from which you have constant use
and big returns for your money.
