Senator Cummins' Indictment.
The Indictment drawn by Senator
Cummins of Iowa against President
Taft to Justify, or rather excuse, the ef
forts of Insurgent republicans to pre
vent the president's renomlnation
sums up In this one sentence that the
president does not take the "progres
sive view" of things. In support of
the charge he enumerates various
measures of legislation on important
subjects embraced within the presi
dential program put through rather by
the votes of the regulars than by the
votes of the insurgents. Reading on
through the bill of particulars, how
ever, Senator Cummins' complaint
seems to be that the president has not
turned insurgent, but has preferred to
lay out a progressive program, and se-l
cure Its enactment by enlisting what
ever help he could get 1
Senator Cummins declares, for ex
ample, that In the making of the
Payne-Aldrlch tariff law the chief
agencies in congress were Mr. Aldrlch
and his followers In the senate, and
Mr. Cannon and his followers in the
house, but he very unfairly suppresses
the well established fact that these
leaders were not permitted to have
their own way, and that all the ma
terial concessions in the direction of
downward revision were procured or
saved in the conference committee by
the personal interference and Influence
of the president.
Senator Cummins finds fault with
the president's position on the bill in
creasing the powers of the Interstate
Commerce commission. But here
again he omits to say, what everyone
knows Is true, that were it not for Mr.
Taft no legislation whatever would
have been had for further railroad
Senator Qummins complains because
the president preferred the certainty
of the corporation tax to raise needed
revenue over the uncertainty of an In
come tax of doubtful constitutionality,
and to procure the Income tax through
the safe process of constitutional
amendment. Whether this was the
progressive view or not, It unquestion
ably was the sensible view, and the
only view sure to produce practical re
sults. Senator Cummins accuses the presi
dent of being out of harmony "with
those who were regarded before his
advent as the best exponents of the
conservation policy," but concedes that
his appointment of Secretary Fisher
commanded the approval of the pro
gressives throughout the country. The
only inference from this specification
is that nothing the president Could do
for conservation would fully satisfy
Senator Cummins admits that there
is a wide difference of opinion as to
Canadian reciprocity. The public gen
erally, however, regard It as a pro
gressive move, and have been from the
first puzzled that the chief opposition
should come from the insurgents who
had been loudest In demanding tariff
Senator Cummins cannot even sup
port the president's arbitration treat
ies, whose popularity we do not believe
he will question, but he has not the
hardihood to make out that their tend
ency is opposed to the progressive
Senator Cummins' chief lamenta
tions rest on the president's vetoes of
the democratic tarlff-for-politlcs bills,
and Arizona-New Mexico statehood.
His fear Is that the democrats will not
give the president a chance to sign an
other tariff bill prepared in the light
of tariff board Investigations. But, if
so, the grievance of the insurgents will
be with their democratic allies rather
than the republican president.
Senator Cummins says that he per
sonally does not approve of the recall
of judges, but stands on "the one pro
gressive proposition" that congress has
no right to prescribe the constitution
for incoming states. If Senator. Cum
mins will read up on the history of
Nebraska he will find that right herq
in his neighboring state congress
Btruck the word "white" out of our
constitution when the state sought to
come in with negroes debarred from
participation in the suffrage.
The real truth is that all the pro
gresslve legislation we have had since
Mr. Taft entered the" White House
and It makes a notable list Is the re
suit of the president's activity, and If
in any of It he has had the support of
reactionaries, it is because he com
pelled them to move forward to keep
his pace. '
Prize Fighting in New York.
The state of New York has not only
legalized prize fighting again, but, In a
measure, has itself gone Into the busi
ness of prize fighting, for it gets 6 per
cent of the proceeds of each battle. Of
course U calls the thing "boxing," but
It makes no difference so long as it
invites two fighters to get into a ring
and beat each other as fiercely as they
can. This is one of the fruits of the
recent Tammany-democratic legislature
and the Dlx regime.
Two black-fist fighters have Just
pummeled each other to pieces In the
historic Madison Square Garden to the
delectation of as many people as could
get into the mammoth building, and a
few days ago two other bruisers held
the stage, while 30,000 devotees of the
"manly art" sat by. On that occasion,
the papers reported, crowds were so
dense and Insistent at the ticket win
dows that, Instead of charging the
regular rate for seats, the box office
men raised prices, In some cases 100
per cent, without lessening the demand
a particle. That made the sovereign
state's "rake-oft" that much more.
Three things are plain: First, that
prise fighting la "popular" In the Em
pire state and Gotham and probably
generally throughout the country; sec
ond, that the devotees of the game only
took the count to feign defeat and
throw the other fellows off their guard,
and, third, if prize fighting is knocked
out in New York or elsewhere it will
require more thsn spasmodic bursts of
virtuous indignation to do it.
It Is timely to recall that New York;
City was one of the places where they
stopped the exhibition of the Johnson
Jeffries moving pictures. Evidently
nothing but the real thing goes there.
Timely Advice from Wilson.
The venerable secretary of agricul
ture has lven the people of Nebraska
some advice In the matter of closer
touch between the state university and
state farm they will do well to
heed. In commenting on the Impor
tance of the university agricultural
school Mr. Wilson while at Lincoln
This state's prosperity depends upon Its
farmers and the more trained farmers you
have the better are going to be the agri
cultural returns of the state each year.
That seems so trite a truth as not to
need reiterating, yet our people are not
heeding It as they should. Wo arc
preaching much about Intensive farm
ing and we cannot preach too much
about it, but we are not practicing the
precepts and taking advantage of the
ways to improve It as wo should. We
are devoting more time to other mat
ters that should be given to the scien
tific development of our chief Industry
and resource. .
Secretary Wilson added:
You have a law school up here and It's
grinding out lawyers to thrust upon the
people of .the state, when the demand Is
400 to 1 for farmers instead of attorneys.
Get your students (of the Btate university)
closer to the Poll and watch the state go
upward by leaps and bounds. It cannot
holp doing so.
Irrefutable, isn't It? Pretty good tip
there to our state boosters and adver
tising agencies. What Secretary Wil
son says cannot be denied, either as to
the plentiful supply of lawyers or the
surplus demand for farmers. Nebraska
is essentially an agricultural state and
probably will always be, yet altogether
too few of Its young men, either from
the farm or town, In fltttlng themselves
for life, are choosing agriculture as a
pursuit. The back-to-the-farm move
ment will never succeed as It should
until the people In the distinctive farm
ing states take the lead In promoting
it. Nothing would so attract outsiders
to Nebraska like her own sons turning
to the soil for their vocation, and the
benefits would be felt In all lines of
The wonder Is that so many young
men continue to throw themselves Into
already over-crowded professions, par
ticularly since at best they offer none
too immediate success. Returns on the
farm would be much quicker and surer,
to say nothing of the upbuilding effect
upon the life of the state and everyone
The Passing of Bailey.
Senator Joseph W. Bailey of Texas
announces that he will not be a candi
date for re-election next year, "and this
decision Is Irrevocable." Of course,
that might and might not mean that
under no circumstances would he go
back to the senate. He does not say
what he would do If elected over his
own protest or persuaded again to
change his mind.
It is probable, though, that If Bailey
Insists on retiring from the senate
Texas will let him. It cannot be denied
that, while he still has some strong
adherents in his home state, Bailey's
following has materially dwindled until
It Is a serious question whether he
could go back to the eenate, no matter
how much he desired to. His popular
lty struck Its zenith and began to wane
at the time of the Waters-Pierce affair
and has gone down steadily since. It
was evident enough last winter on the
occasion of his flare-up In the senate
over the Lorlmer situation that he was
not the .idol of as many Texans as he
It Is a good time for Bailey to retire,
since his day and kind are passing. Ills
continuance in the senate to be at all
compensatory to his state would re
quire a change of base on his part, and
that seems to be out of the question.
He Is only one of many able men in
public life who have been swept aside
through lack of high political stand
Many of the new leaders may not
outrank Bailey In intellectual power,
yet be far more serviceable to the peo
ple because more respectful of popular
rights In relation to those of special
Interests. He may follow others of his
school out of public office Into the pri
vate employ of those Interests.

years axo, and has diligently pursued Its
purpose of assisting seamen to the limit of
Its funds, contributed by generous people.
The society's loan libraries consists of
about forty volumea, selected with great
care, consisting chiefly of educational
helps, standard books of travel, novels that
point a moral, an atlas, dictionary and
books of a religious nature. Most of the
works are In English, with a sprinkling of
German, Norwegian and Swedish books.
The libraries are In oases and placed In
charge of captains and mates, who dis
tribute the books to the crews. The libra
ries sre changed at Intervals and placed on
all classes of sailing craft. As many of
these vessels do not touch port for weeks,

High cost of necessaries In ths cities and
low price of produce on the farms appar
ently go together. Patrick Egan, who
acted as spokesman for a delegation repre
senting 62,500 Pennsylvania farmers on
their visit to Mayor Gaynor at New York
a few days ago, produced some startling
figures showing to what extent both the
producer and consumer are mulcted. "Po
tatoes, for which the consumer paid $"'),
000,000 last year," he said, "netted our
farmers less than tS. 600,000. Cabbages,
which sold In this city for $9,125,000, brought
the- farmers $1,800,000, and milk, which sold
In the city for $4S,0O0,O00, brought the farm
ers less than $23,000,000." The difference,
of course, represents the cost of transpor
tation and distribution and the middlemen's
profit. The economic waste connected with
the present system of marketing farm
products is colossal, and the problem
of bringing the producer In more direct re
lations with the consumer Is one that de
mands an early solution.

room. His bed was unoccupied and she
hastened through the apartment without
finding any trace of him.

TRAGEDY OF A "DABE."
Washington Herald: Ths courage which
lndueed him to show the excited mob that

who thus drove him to his death, or of
such of them as have any feelings, are not
to be coveted.
Cleveland Plain Dealer: The aviator who
