The Two New Stars.
The president's approval of the
statehood bill admitting Arlsona and
New Mexico Into the union will add
two rather bright stars to the national
firmament, making forty-eight In all.
A long time Is likely to elapse before
another new state is admitted. Alaska
Is our only contiguous territory re
maining, but there is little prospect
of a state being carved out of Alaska
for years to come. In time we may have
a division of Texas, Washington and
California, where agitation for new
states has occasionally been heard, but
that Is remote at best.
Arizona comes into the union with a
population under the 1910 census of
204,354, and New Mexico with 327,
301. Three states have less population
than Arizona and four less than New
Mexico. They are Delaware, Nevada,
Wyoming and Idaho. Idaho has 328,-
594, which puts it just below New
Mexico and considerably above Ari
zona. In point of area New Mexico
la the fourth and Arizona the fifth,
largest state in the union.
The nation should have a whole
hearted welcome for both of the new
states. They come with the pulses of
Industry beating. For the decade from
900 to 1910 New Mexico's rate of
growth In population waa 67.5 per
cent, exceeded by only five other states,
nd Arizona's rate of increase waa 66.2
per cent, exceeded by only six other
states, of which New Mexico was one
Great enterprises are at work develop
ing resources in both states and with
maiden soli of remarkable fertility,
salubrious climate and railroad ad
vantages, It stands to reason that as
states their development will be much
faster than it could have been as ter
ritorles. Capital will go In there much
more readily now.
Under the late census, the annual
manufacturing products of Arizona
had a market valuation of 120,083,192
and there was a capital investment In
manufacturing of 114,395,654, with
4,793-wage-earners. New Mexico, with
a larger Indian and Mexican popula
tion, showed up very much below this.
Its capital employed in manufacture
amounted to $4,638,248, while Its
production of manufactures sold for
5,705,880 and it employed 3,478 wage-
earners. But In a very snort time
when the mineral and agricultural re
sources are opened up, aa they will
be, these figures will be lost in com
parison. These new states are bound
to get their share of the great scheme
of western upbuilding now so energet
ically in operation.
Homemade and Bought Bread..
According to Kansas City papers,
the National Association of Master
Bakers, in convention there, will try
to devise ways and means for checking
or overcoming the Increasing consump
tion of homemade bread. The question
Is asked. What can be done to counter
act the baleful tendency?
There have been times and places
where the answer to such a question
might be: "Satisfy the housewife that
she is getting better value in the baker-
made or bought loaf." But, of course,
every baker would resent the imputa
tion contained In such a reply. Never
theless, instances have been recorded
where complaints respecting fair
weights and measures and purity of
Ingredients and sanitary surroundings
were, at least, believed to have been
well founded. In such cases as these,
the bakers should have no difficulty
finding the answer to their question,
nor meeting the condition.
If housewives are really baking
their own bread In preference to buy
ing it already baked, they must think
they have a reason, as baking bread Is
not exactly a pleasant means of diver
slon, and if they are mistaken the way
to show them is by advising them of
the facts and driving the truth in by
a proper publicity campaign.
A Great Game This.
A year ago the democrata of Doug
las county realized that the only hope
or salvation for their local ticket lay
in being packed along by Mayor Jim,
then running for governor. It waa
life or death to them to keep the vot
ing machines In business so they might
reap full benefit of the party lever
and they made all sorts of deals and
bargains to accomplish this purpose.
This year, If we mistake not, the party
lever advantage Is reversed. The
democrats will be the ones who will
want ot get rid of the voting machines
and to forget all their former fako
lamentations about aendlng $50,000
worth of property to the Junk heap.
The democratic bunch will soon be try
ing to figure out a way to ditch the
machines if they only dare. It's a
great game, this game of politics.

England's Labor Object Lesson.
Nearly a quarter million wage-earn
ers were idle and riotously demonstra
tive as a result of the railroad strikes
in England. English press dispatches,
notably conservative, described the sit
uation as the most serious conflict be
tween capital and labor ever known
there. The possible consequences were
contemplated with a shudder. Then,
much more suddenly than It broke,
this menacing storm passed and peace
dwelt where fear and terror had
The strike was over. Had the strikers
won; had they gained what they de
manded? No, but they agreed with
their employers to leave everything to
boards of conciliation, whose decisions
are to be binding and In the meantime
the strikers should return to work
under the conditions against which
they revolted and continue until the
verdict. It affords a striking contrast
with the way we redress similar grlev
ances In the United States and ought
to teach us a valuable object lesson.
To show the two-stdedness of the terms
of agreement pending a settlement,
we here give them In full:
1. The strlk to b terminated forthwith
with th men's leaders to us their bt
endeavors to Induce th men to return to
work at one.
L All th men Involved In the present
dispute, either by strlk or lockout. Includ
ing casuals, who present themselves for
work within a reasonable time, to b re
instated by th oompanles at th earliest
possible moment and no on to b sub
jected to proceedings for breach of con
tract or otherwise penalised.
S. Conciliation boards to be convened for
the purpose of settling forthwith all que
ttona at present In dispute aa far aa they
are within the scope of sueh boards, pro
vided notice of such questions be given not
later than fourteen days from the date of
this agreement. If the sectional board
fall to arrive at a settlement, the central
board Is to meet at once. Any deolslons
arrived at are to be retroactive as from the
date of this agreement. It is agreed for
the purpose of this and the following clause
that rates of wages Include remuneration
whether by time or piecework.
4. Steps are to be taken forthwith to
ffect a settlement of questions now In
dispute between the companies and classes
of their employes not Included within the
conciliation scheme of 1907 by means of
conferences between representatives of the
employes who themselves are employed by
the same companies, and failing of an
agreement by arbitration they are to be ar
ranged mutually or by the Board of Trade.
The above Is to be a temporary arrange
ment pending a report of the commission
as to the best means for settling disputes.
5. Both parties are to give every am. .st
ance to the special commission of inquiry.
the immediate appointment of which the
government has announced.
6. Any questions which may arise as to
the interpretation of this agreement are to
be referred to the Board of Trade.
The Extra Session.
President Taft convened the extra
session of the Sixty-second congress
April 4 for the specific purpose o
passing the Canadian reciprocity bill
Congress passed the bill. The president,
therefore achieved what he undertook
Of course, congress did other things
besides pass this administration meas
ure. Dominated by a large democratic
majority in the house and a demo
cratic-insurgent coalition in the senate,
it spent most of the needlessly pro
longed session trying "to put the pres
ident In a hole." Whether these forces
suceeded is for the people to say
later. We think they came very far
from succeeding, but that in their un
wise attempt they hurt themselves
much more than they did his adminis
tration. The executive message recommend
ing the passage of the reciprocity bill,
accompanied by the agreement with
Canada, contained these words:
I am constrained In deference to popular
sentiment and with a realising sense of
my duty to the great mass of our people,
whose welfare Is Involved, to urge on your
consideration early action on this agree
ment. It was chiefly the democratic hcuise
that prevented early action and we
have not a doubt that in so doing the
democrats, in their eagerness to manu
facture campaign thunder, did not sat
isfy the popular sentiment to which
the president deferred. They failed to
bring to successful fruition the many
measures about which they talked long
and loud and were it not for their en
forced approval of the president's own
measure, they would be in even worse
straits than they are in asking popular
endorsment of their record.
An objection is lodged against
adopting the proposed commission plan
of city government because the law
was not drafted by the city attorney.
Does any one expect the city attorney
to draw a bill to put himself out of of
fice? The present city attorney never
had any previous experience drawing
legislative bills anyway.

A Kew Word from llr, llr.
K&ARNEY, Neb., Aug. 22. To the Kdltor
of The Bee: A. L. Harris, writing from
from New York to The Bee, seems of th
opinion that the dismissal of IT. Wiley
from the bureau of chemistry would not
be a misfortune; quite the reverse from
the tenor of his letter.
That no one man Is absolutely Indlspen-
slble to any position, Is self evident, yet
th summary dismlaaal of any publlo ser
vant for doing his plain duty to the peo
ple, whose servant Dr. Wiley evidently re
gards himself (rather than the servant of
certain manufacturing Interests, or even
of the Agricultural department, would
be a publlo misfortune. It Is for this rea
son that the paopl are overwhelmingly
on th sld of Dr. Wiley.
"It Is a well known fact," writes Mr.
Harris, "that Dr. Wiley's view on whiskey,
glucose, bensolo acid, etc, have been re
versed by his superiors." 8lnc Dr.
Wiley Is head chemist and since his su
superlors, therefore, must mean th head
or heads of the Agricultural department un
der which th bureau of chemistry is
placed, I fear that the people will regard
these superiors utterly Incompetent to
pass judgment on questions of chem
istry, vn though some of them may
question of whisky. I believe that Dr.
Wiley did stat that he was sustained In
his contention that rye whiskey ought to
b mad from rye,
"Ther Is really no danger to health and
life In th partaking of adulterated con
diments," Is also a delicious bon mot In
Mr. Harris' letter. On would naturaly
suppose that depened on what adulterant Is
used. If it Is In the nature of a preserv
atlv. such as formaldehyde or bensoat of
soda, many Intelligent people regard it as
Injurious to life and health and side with
Dr. Wiley on this question.
Now listen to this: "Such food as
potatoes, fresh apples, fresh vegetables,
fresh fruits, nuts, etc., never have been
adultered." Thank heaven When they
begin to shoot bensolc acid Into our fresh
potatoes and apples or Inject formaldehyde
Into our fresh eggs and nuts, then will
one be tempted to quietly He down In some
silent corner and give up the struggle.
That many, manufacturers of food pro
ducts are not over burdened with delicacy
of conscience Is well known. They have
systematically fought every step of gov
ernment supervision. This fight against
Dr. Wiley seems In the nature of a last
stand. They may get his goat" but If
they do the administration, will bear the
onus and pay the penalty.
N. H. JOHNSON.
Good Roads and the Farmer.
SILVER CREEK, Neb., Aug. 21. To the
Editor of The Bee: I used to think the
farmers were level-headed folk and at least
as well Informed as any other class of cltl
ens. But I have changed my mind; I now
believe them to be a pack ot consummate
Idiots. For years those great philanthro
pists. Col. Pope, of bicycle fame, peace to
his ashes, and his successors, the automo
bile men, have been telling the fool farm
ers that If they would sell all they had
and build good roads they could make
themselves everlastingly rich. But the
thick-skulled farmers didn't believe It, got
to feeling very sore by being continually
pestered In this way, and oontlnued to haul
their wheat and corn and hogs through
the mud to the nearest market as they
had been doing from time Immemorial.
Now we are beginning to get oyr eyes open
and coming to see that we are a lot of
chumps Just as the automobile people have
been telling us we wer.
And why? Don't you know? During
this last spring and summer, your esteemed
contemporary, the World-Herald, ably sec
onded 'by Dan Stephens of Fremont, and
the automobile men, despairing of ever
beating any sense Into our heads, have
been building a road for us along the
main line of the Union Pacific from Omaha
to North Platte. Just as an object lesson.
It must be nearly done now, although I
have not seen anything of It, notwith
standing It crosses my farm and I have
often looked for It from the car windows.
But It Is surely there. Just the same, be
cause a lot of Omaha automobile men with
their machines are going to take a spin
over It early In September to see that It
is all right, and then It will be turned over
to the farmers.
That will be the dawn of a ' new era.
Then we shall out out th little towns
along the road and haul our wheat and
corn and hogs directly into Omaha, bring
back In our wagons from your big stores,
groceries, dry goods and supplies of all
But we are not going to be small about
this thing. We are going to let the auto
mobile people use ' the road to a limited
extent, only so they don't get so thick we
shall have to keep off ourselves. Dan says
they will come In swarms the Rockefel
lers, the Morgans, the Vanderbllts, and all
other such malefactors ot wealth, and
scatter gold all along the aides of this
new road. We shall gather It up In sack
fulls, and thus be able to contribute lib
erally to Dan's campaign fund when he
runs for congress next year. We shall
not forget the automobile people; we like
to see them on their Joy rides, and when
the next legislature convenes we shall
work as hard to get the outfit to do some
thing for them as they so disinterestedly
worked last winter to get the legislature
to do something for us. I don't think we
oould do anything to help Providence out
If we should try, and as to the W-H, even
the attempt to recompense It in any way
would be in very bad taste, to say the
least, sine it always acta from purely
altruistic motives, without any thought ot
personal gain. CHARLES WOOSTER.
