Tha Harriman Merger.
Although it will probably go ud by
appeal to the court of last resort, the
circuit court's decision validating the
so-called Harriman merger indicates
the conjunction under one ownership
snd management of the Southern Pa
cific and Union Pacific. Its far-
reaching scope, therefore, makes the
case one of the most important to this
territory ever brought Into litigation
and the decision correspondingly
great In the transportation world.
To the layman the Union Pacific
and Southern Pacific have always
seemed essentially to be one continu
ous line of railroad. They were or
iginally projected and built as one
transcontinental route, and that
theory seems to have had considera
tion with the court. But the point
of vital Interest Is that the merging
of these railroads did not work hard
ship upon the public. Rates were not
raised, service not lowered. Rsther.
on the contrsry, the standard of effi
ciency was vastly elevated. In 1898
as soon as Mr. Harriman had con
cluded the purchase of the Union Pa
cific he began his plans for improve
ment, starting on the roadbed. For
five years one of the greatest roadbed
experts In the world, Horace O. Burt,
devoted his skill and the Harriman
millions to building up the physical
condition of the line, which was bank
rupt and badly deteriorated when Har
riman bought it. Instead of suffer
ing, the public has apparently profited
by the merger, and the court so finds.
Here, then, seems to be a case
which a court Is willing to define as
reasonable restraint," if there is any
restraint, though it is not shown that
competition has been much restrained.
Where competition Is restrslned in the
interest of better public service, cer
tainly it is not unreasonable, but
highly desirable. The circuit court
reads two new words Into the Sher
man law in this decision "direct"
and "substantial," holding the re
straint to be neither. It Is Incon
ceivable that popular opinion should
influence a court decision, but this Is
one case where, undoubtedly, if popu
lar opinion had an expression, it would
be on the side of the ruling of the
court.
Reciprocity and Insurgency.
Canadian reciprocity is the greatest
paradox of yeara when it comes to
unmaking old and making new polit
ical alliances. It is striking especially
strong on the insurgents of the senate
and deforming their lines of organiza
tion. This in turn is severing rela
tions between some of these senators
and their former newspaper cham
pions. For Instance, here Is the St
Paul Pioneer-Press, which, under its
new ownership, goes as far in the line
of Insurgency as under its old man
agement it had gone in conservatism,
editorially lambasting both Senator
Clapp and Senator La Follette in the
same issue. One would almost as
soon think of the Houston Post de
nouncing Bailey as to Imagine that the
reformed Pioneer-Press could even
disagree with La Follette in nartlo-
ular and with anything insurgent in
general.
"It is not worth while trying to fol
low Senator La Follette's method of
reasoning," impatiently exclaims the
Pioneer-Press, which then serves
notice on the Wisconsin statesman to
this effect: "He has presidential am
bitions and has allowed it to be
known .that he will enter the race for
the nomination against President Taft.
He has openly sought a Quarrel with
President Taft. The public Interest
usually suffers when pitted against
personal antipathies, grudges and po
litical ambitions." It should be re
called in this connection that at the
famoua St. Paul conservation congress
President Taft found it very difficult
to get polite treatment from the Pio
neer-Press.
As for Senator Clapp. his position
on reciprocity Is the most difficult of
all to account for. His state is for It
and most of its representatives in con
gress are for it. ret he finds reason
for opposing it. He may be Just aa
honest in his convictions as a man can
be, but that is nog satisfying some of
his former hot-headed champions a
bit. Truly, reciprocity seems to be
making a rocky road for aome insur
gent leaders to travel.
First to Pay the Price.
Senator Paynter has paid the price
in Kentucky of espousing the cause of
Lorlmer in the senate. According to
reports he has withdrawn from the
race for re-election, leaving the field
for the democratic nomination free to
Congressman Ollle James.
Psynter was a member of the Lorl
mer whitewash committee and he did
not stop with signing the apologetic
report submitted to the senate, but
took the floor in defense of the Illi
nois senator. When James decided
to run for the senate from Kentucky,
being an aatute politician, he had no
hesitancy in determining to make his
whole campaign on Paynter's cham
pionship of Lorlmer. Evidently he
has had an easy time of It Thus
early in the fight the nomination
comes In July hia opponent clears
the track.
Now the question is, how msny of
the pro-Lorlmer senators will have to
pay the same price for going to the
defense of the Illlnolsan? Will
Barley of Texas? Many believe be
will, though, fortunately for Bailey,
he lives la Texas Instead of Kentucky.
Texas Is sot as sensitive on such
points as it might be. At the same
time there la trouble ahead of Bailey,
and no mistake about- that Hia
friends bare already beea put on the
defensive.' All things being equal aa
te eonstltaentav certainly If Paynter
is compelled to forfeit his seat In the
senate as the penalty of defending
Lorlmer, Bailey would be brought
even quicker to the same doom, for,
while other senators have been Lorl
mer men, Bailey has been "the
Lorlmer man. For some strange
reason he has seemed to tske the posi
tion that he simply ' had to defend
Lorlmer, and he" has done it with all
the gusto of his complacent nature.
Omaha's Chance to Get Busy.
Japan's two greatest heroes of its
war with Russia, Admiral Togo and
General Nogl, delegated to represent
their emperor at the British corona
tion, are on a tour around the world
and will shortly visit the United Ststes
as the guest of our government
Omaha, we are sure, would be glad to
entertain these two world-famed war
riors If their Itinerary in the United
States can be made to Include our glty.
What is Omaha going to do about
it? Here is a chance for Ak-Sar-Ben
to get busy. Here is an opportunity
for the Commercial club to reach out
and. do something thst will attract
attention to Omaha. Omaha is the
main gateway of the principal trans
continental thoroughfare, but unless
Omaha wakes up our distinguished
Japanese guests may choose another
route.
Checking the Pace.
In .all the time Americans have
been protesting against the high cost
of living they have-been living exceed-J
ingly well and at times it bas been
questionable if the complaint was not
high living more than high cost They
continued to buy luxuries, at home
and abroad. They persisted in indulg
ing their appetites for fine wines from
choice European brands and for pre
cious stones thst came from an old
world center. Economists then began
to admonish the people against the
evils of extravagance of this character.
Evidently they pleaded not in vain, or
has .the tariff on luxuries got In Its
work? At any rate qur people seem
to be beginning to economise in the
things that are not classed aa actual
necessities.
From the Department of Com
merce's statistician comes the showing
that in the last eleven months we have
cut our imported diamond bill down
about $7,000,000 and have whacked
our foreign champagne bill square in
two. In the last eleven months we im
ported $30,500,000 worth of dia
monds, as compared with $37,150,000
worth in the eleven months preceding,
and $3,000,000 worth of champagne,
as against $6,000,000 worth before.
So we may claim to be checking the
pace at all events.
Dog Tray at His Old Tricks.
It Is an old saying that a dog will
return to his vomit It would be Just
as natural to expect a vomiting dog to
change his habits as to expect a Water
bond election without R. B. Howell
exploding into a personal attack on
the editor of The Bee. - What troubles
this mountebank is that from the
start The Bee has seen through his
serpentine schemes and bas exposed
his falsehoods and fakes. What
troubles him still more is that one by
one the position of The Bee on every
step of the water works purchase pro
ceedings has been vindicated, . while
the bunco game played by Howell and
bis misguided associates has been
shown up In its true light
The only answer this costly parasite
on the community' could make has
been to ring the changes on the fact
that the water company and The Bee
are tenants of the same building. What
galls him most of all Is that the peo
ple have bad to come Into The Bee
building to pay their water rent as if
It would make any difference to-them
whether they paid their bills on Sev
enteenth and Farnam or on Eight
eenth and Farnam so long as the bills
are in the same amount. The fact
that Howell In drawing bis compul
sory purchase bill crested a high
salaried position as manager of the
water plant for himself to fill
and y which he still expects to get, of
course, has nothing to do with bis un
selfish and patriotic motives any more
than his continued draft on the tax
payers for salary and Junket expenses
as a member of the Water board all
tbeae years, with no water works to
manage. y .
Two years ago this same water
spouter concocted a wonderful yarn
about "a great conspiracy" projected
by a syndicate of capitalists, with the
editor of The Bee listed as a member,
to deprive the people of Omaha of the
rare privilege of being compelled to
pay $6,263,195.49 and Interest for the
water works plsnt, which Howell, on
his reputstlon as a civil and hydraulic
engineer, bad assured us we could
buy for $3,000,000. It goes without
saying that Howell heard all about
this syndicate, which never existed,
before any one la The Bee office ever
heard about it h.ut that does not stop
him from trying to resurrect the bogey
again now to frighten the people into
voting an $8,250,000 water bond
Issue.
The position of The Bee on these
bonds Is plain enough and need not be
distorted. The Bee believes the pro
posed issue of $8,250,000 water bonds
at this time, before the court bas told
us bow much will be needed to settle
for the plant, Is premature Just as was
the voting of $6,600,000 water bonds
two years ago. It does not believe
voting these bonds at this time will
hasten the court proceedings In the
least or that it will make any differ
ence whether they are voted down or
up so far aa ultimate results are con
cerned. Senator Bailey thinks the president
should not express opinions oa sub
jects under discussion in the senate.
If the president's opinions should
happen to coincide with Bailey's the
Texsn probably would think It proper
enough.
J
The Bee prints a complaint from an
autolst In a neighboring town who
has been impressed with the Idea that
the police In Omaha lay for out-of-
town speeders snd give them the
worst of it. Our contributor con
cludes with the added suggestion that
this course will keep auto strangers
out of Omaha. If the complaint Is
well grounded there should be a
change and all auto speeders trested
alike. The out-of-town autolst should
not be more severely dealt with than
the In-town autolst, but neither should
the out-of-town excuse be accepted In
mitigation of flagrant dlsregsrd of
speed regulation. This is the place
where the rule of reason ahould be
applied.
When the Commercial club was
asked five years ago to help bring
about an arrangement with the water
company whereby a second supply
main to Florence could be built as a
fire safeguard the president of the
club wrote:
After consultation with the executive
committee. It does not appear to tne to be
a wise thing for this organisation at this
time to interest Itself tn an attempt to
solve the difficulties now existing fcrith
reference to our water supply.
What has come over the Commer
cial club that makes it so interested
now in what did not Interest It at all
then?

upon admission to the eervlce, the treat
ment which will protect them from typhoid.
More than a year ago General Torney pro-
poeed that this precautionary measure
ahould be adopted, but It was felt at the
time that the system had not been suf
ficiently tested to Justify thla proceeding.
The results In the army have been such ss
now leave no question among the medical
officers and those who are Interested In
the prevention of dlaeaae among the fight

been convincing, and It Is attributable en
tlrely to typhoid prophylaxis. Vnder the
orders -which have been Insued the army
will be immune to typhoid in three years, It
Is estimated by the medical officers. This
is nothing short of an Important contribu
tion to the efficiency of the service. -

to what he regards as an exceealva tihv.

held of several candidates In Washington
and It Is understood that all of them failed
physically or, at least, did not come up to

eral orders No. 64. of April . from the
war department It will be necessary to

masters' clerk are not such as require
in strict physical fitness of the fighting
personnel. The suggestion that the sur
geon general be permitted to waive auch
defects as may be regarded as not inter-
rering with the usefulness of a candidate
is not received with favor nv the mainei
officers, who believe there should be a re
asonable standard'wlth more or less strict
adherence thereto.
The house committee on expenditures In
the War department has been holding ses
sions lately, among those who have ap
peared being the quartermaster general of
the army, and, later. Major B. Frank
Cheatham of the quartermaster's depart
ment The latter officer has charge of
construction at military posts and the
committee desired information and opin
ions, especially concerning the wisdom of
establishing small garrisons. Major
Cheatham was able to inform the com
mittee concerning manr subject relating
to the cost of erecting and maintaining
posts, but be carefully refrained from In
dulging In any expressions of his personal
views on matters Involving policy. It has
been quit evident that the committee In
terrogation is prompted bv some member
who has a prejudice asainst Fort D. R,
Russell. Wyo.. and an effort has been
mads to make It appear that that post
Is an sxtravsjranoe and has been fostered
by the War department and provided for
by congress at the expense of other posts,
such as Port Logan. Colo. The investiga
tion is conducted with entire good humor,
but It Is apparent that a desperate effort
Is being made to obtain something dam
aging somehow to somebody.
Some consideration is being given to the
suggestion of the medical officer of the
army who are with the maneuver division
in Texas that there be a change in the
site of the big camp of that command.
If any transfer Is made, it will be a purely
local on and In the Interest of camp
sanitation. It Is represented that this Is
necessary for the protection of the health
of the troop. There I no prospect that
the ommand will be moved any dlstanoe,
since the present location Is the best
which can be obtained In Texas for so
large a body of troops. The desire for a
change of base, described as prevailing
among the troops along the border, can
hardly be regarded by military authorities
as Justifying any material change In that
particular. The withdrawal of the troops
from Oalveston and from San We go con
stitute all the movement which Is likely
to occur for some time, the deetlny of
the so-called maneuver division depending
entirely upon the outcome In Mexico, the
affairs of whloh oountry ar being ob
served with the keenest Interest by the
military and the Stat department people
In Washington. There Is some apprehen
sion that tha Mexicans will not abide by
the result of the coming eleotion, and
those who know of ths situation In Mexloo
and who are acquainted with tha tempera
ment of the pool ar dlspos dto regard
the condition a still mors or leas menac
ing. It Is for this reason that the Ameri
can troops will remain along th Mexican
border for an indefinite period.
