The Canal and Hawaii.
The operation of the Panama canal
undoubtedly will benefit the Ha

benefit will 'be .very pronounced upon

America's mid-sea possession. In an

Judge Dole says:

Ou amiable democratic friends are
gleefully pointing to the registration

conclusively that they have prevented
a great republican conspiracy to pad
the vote there through fictitious
Hut If the Third ward registered
between 400 aud 500 leas than last
year, what does it really prove? It
proves that laBt year the democratic
machine inflated the vote in the
Third ward to that extent In the in
terest of Mayor "Jim" for governor
and Mr. Hitchcock for senator. That
ia exactly what The Bee charged at
the time, and followed up by expos

by the democratic bosses.
If the democrats have this year de
sisted from their fraudulent prac
tices, we congratulate them on their
reform, but we see no reaaon for
them, thus self-convicted, to try to
unload their shame. upon the repub
licans. If the deficit 'in the Third ward

that the democrat perpetrated rank
fraud in last year's registration, and

Whether, as suggested, the su
preme court's ruling that obliges all
railroads to observe the federal
tafefy appliance act foreshadows
complete control of the railroads of
the country by tbe Interstate Com
merce commission, It cannot be
doubted that the tendency Is In that
direction, and yet there havo been
exceptions to the rule, notably In the
rase of tbe employers' liability act,
where tho court has held for state
rather than federal control.
Lul tli's Is a big qucptlon yet to

of federal or stute control of rail

Tbe Importance of the office i of

has. demonstrated hla ability, and,
what la more, has satisfied every one

Evidently tho size of Lincoln's

Bryan, Hitchcock, Dahlman & Co.
The Om. ha World-Herald
concedo that Mr. Bryan la to be
honored by the democrats of Ne
braska with a seat In the democratic
national convention of 1912, but It Is un
reserved In It Judgment that "the next
democratic national convention is to be
of the most exciting character." It would
be aa well for the World-Herald to get
Into the open with referenre to a matter
of such Interest In Its stute and In the
country at large. Mr. Bryan has given
notice in the plainest spend thut bo is
cand.datc for a seat in tho convention,
snd be has declared, a If recognizing
tl.e existence of home opposition, that If
the democrats of his state refuse to place
him on the delegation he will attend the
convention anyway. If there Is n fiaht
on Mr. Bryan In his homo state It would
seem a violation of democratic principle
to niuJie the fight from ambush.
The World-Herald proceeds to say, as
If by way of explanation cf the antici
pated excitement In the convention, that
"there will be at least five candidates be
fore the convention, all of whom will
have backing from the very first." There
may be more that five, and to reduce the
field to that number will Involve broken
promises, but say tho number Is to bo
five. "They are," the World-Herald says,
"Harmon, Wilson, Folk, Marshall and
Champ Clork." It will be noticed by the
critical reader that the names are nut
given In alphabetical order. The conclu
sion may not be far wrong that they are
given In the order of preference. On this
hypothesis there I deep significance In
the fact that the name of Harmon leada
all the rest. Mr. Bryan will notlco that.
As a man of discernment and as a man
Intimately acquainted with condition and
relations in Nebraska, he cannot fall to
notice with some rising of suspicion,
thjt the name of Harmon is given the
post of honor. I'ossibly a key is pro
vided to the energetic declaration of Mr.
Bryan in hla address lit the Nebraska
campaign of thl year that he will be in
the convention of next year, whether
Mr. Bryun himself ha made It clear,

the candidacy of the Ohio governor. Jud-
sorj Harmon, distinguished member of the
Cleveland cabinet, for the Bryan succes
sion In the race for the office of president
of the I'nlted States. The World-Heraid
1 entirely familiar with this Important
fact. Nor can it be Ignorant of the fact
that the distinction It gives to the name
of Harmon Is next to declaration of
war nsainst Nebraska's most conspicuous
democrat and citizen. There Is reason
for presumption that it was so Intended.
The owner of the World-Herald Is Sen
ator Gilbert M. Hitchcock. In the last
campaign Mr. Hitchcock supported for
the governorship of Nebraska the mayor
of Omaha. James Charles Dahlman, and
Mr. Bryan opposed the Dahlman candi
dacy. Tho election fell to Chester H.
Aldrlch, republican. The result was dis
quieting, ond Mr. Dahlman still lives.
Does Senator Hitchcock find that he is
not In position to say a kind word for
Mr. Eryan? Does the senator fear that
Intimate political association with Mr.
Bryan would imperil a second term In
the si nate of the t'nlted States? Mr.
Bryan's course was not approved by what
may be termed the liquor Interest of bis
state. Are the liquor Interests disposed
to put Mr. Bryan down and out? If so.
Is Senator Hitchcock In such situation
that he fears to Intervene In Behalf of
h'.s old friend, philosopher and guide?
The game of politics is selfish and too
often cruel. Can it be possible that back
of all is a plan for a potential Dahlman
Hitchcock machine for the dominance of
democratic politics In the city of Omaha
an tho state of Nebraska?
Mr. Bryan Is entitled to a fair show,
to an open field and to civilized warfare.
If thought of peace Is to be dismissed
and a fight Is inevitable. , The appeal In
the state of Nebraska Is necessarily to
the people In this particular instance to

THE AFTER CLAP.
Oh. say, did you go
To the gorgeous 1-and show,
Where the big apples shine
And the big peaches glow?
Ami did you remark
On the size of the fruit 1.
Did you open your eyes?
Did the sight make you mute?
Did you see in the booths
All thoso product of wonder?
Did you think the producers
on their land made a blunder?
Did yon see the alfalfa
Just like It was growing.
And read of the crops 1
That aro yours for the sowing?
Doou know that for you.
With your strength and your grit
There's a fortune in land r
If you rustle for HT
And when It has gone.
Can you now fail to guess
That this Land show of ours
Was a howling success?
