Constructive Railway Policies.
A Railway Business Association
Bulletin, dealing with legislation and
executive policies affecting the rail
roads, makes much of the claim tbat
"viewing the whole country the most
far-reaching tendency Is a diminu
tion or complete cessation of law
making affecting the carriers." It
goes on to show that: '

It then quotes several governors at
the recent conference of governors
as enunciating euch constructive

Potash Mines in Alaska.
Report comes of the discovery of
immense potash deposits In Alaska.
Are wo to have another "New Ul
dorado," another rush for the great
northwest? Probably not, for the
government will take care ot the
product, and permit no monopoly by
private prospectors. This lends the
cheerful aspect that In event of the
reports proving true we may be
spared the untoward happenings auch
rs have followed the taking up of
coal and timber claims in the penin
sular. It ha been well aald tbat potash
in abundance upon American soil
would be moro valuable than gold,
particularly at this time when we are
getting started on our system of in
tensive agriculture and are ao long
on gold and abort on potash. For
potash would become the hand
maiden of that modern method.

Germany held n corner on. JuNt so we
had our vast Alaskan fields left.
Nothing is small in Alattka. Gold,
coal, timber are all more abundant
than anywhere else. So potash, if It
has been discovered, must underlie
the surface of tbat great natural
kingdom of wealth in Inexhau3tlble
quantities. Of course, we shall know
definitely about this matter before
congress seta to work this winter
constructing a new form of govern
ment for Alaska.

t brlitlan Science Viewpoint.
OMAHA, Nov. 8.-T0 the Editor of The
Lee: An article in The Kutxlay Bee
Quotes from "a book." (the tlt.e aot given),
wrlttnn by an unnamed "professor" who
seekw to discredit Christian Science and
Its leader by repeating allegations too
often refuted to be seriously comtidtred
by an enllglttened public.
In the limited space of a brief para
graph this anonymous "profeasor" Incor
rectly clasalflea Chriatian Hclence, con
demns his own misconceptions of its
methods, a tehee a gllmpee of Its pur
pose, but obacurts his vision by denounc
ing Its lder, irrespective of age or ver
acity. The superficial observer may deem all
mental methods Identical, but the honest
investigator soon learns that no analogy
exist between Christian Bclence, based
upon the Llvlne Mind,' as tha only con
sciousness, and other metaphysical sys
tems dependent upon the human mind and
Its modes. Christian tclantlfrts under
stand that In exact ratio of their obedi
ence to Ood are they freed from human
despotism, consequently they deprecate
personal control and eschew esoteric
The life end work ef the leader of
Christian Science Is a true Index to her
character, and are so well known that
any attempt to impugn her motives or
acts must prove abortive. Her insistent
admonition to follow her only as she
follows Christ Is a sufficient denial of
the accusation that she demands obedi
ence to personal requirements.
The Chriatian Scientist is not "com
pelled to be a book agent," but he Is In
spired by gratitude to recommend the In
quirer to a careful study of literature
which opened his own eyes to man's God
given dominion over evil. He assuredly
regards the healing of sickness and sin
an the "be-all and end-all of human life,"
for this work, already begun by Chris
tian Science, will be carrlod to comple
tion; discord of every nature will be
eliminated, harmony reinstated and God's
kingdom will be established upon earth
Whosoever will may prove to his satis
faction the availability and adaptability
of Christian Science to every human
necessity. NELLIE M. JOHNSON
Crock Hlerh School Foot HaIlU
OMAHA Nov. .-To the Editor of Tha
Bee: In The Sunday Bee I was a very
Interested reader of an article which
waa a resume of the history of th
Omaha High school foot ball elevens. Th
writer ot your article has evidently over
looked some ot the best players ever
turned out by this school or any other
high school. For Instance, ther was
Kugene (Oene) Tracy, the greatest half
back of them all, and with the exception
ot Will F.nglehart, the brightest star
who ever wore a moleskin for our high
school. Tracy, thotlgh comparatively
light, waa one of the longest and surest
ground gainers turned out by any west
era high school. II had a natural "high
knee" action when running with the ball
which made him practically impossible to
tackle successfully. If I am not mistaken
Tracy was a member ot the high school
team from 1K93 to 1901, inclusively.
Then ther was Harry Welch, who
played tackle on th eleven with Tracy.
Surely no one could forget the tawer of
strength he added to the high school
line, with his weight, great strength and
clear head. Will Thlrkles, the lamented
colored boy who died while yet In
school, was Tracy's mate at halt for
season and one half. Thlrkles waa one
of the best-liked students In the whole
school and was a veritable demon as a
sure ground gainer and tackier on th
team. To those of us who were students
In the high school from VSSI to 190S and
who have followed the records of the
players since ther csn be no exception
taken to the fact that of points made for
the team no one player contributed more
than Ouy Thomas, who played end.
Thomas, besides being swift as lightning
snd a remarkajle tackier, was without a
peer as a punter. To anyone who wit
nessed the game between Tarklo college
and Omaha High school the way Thomas
saved tha day by punts ranging from
fifty to sixty yards was a revelation and
there could bo no question of his ex
trcino power as a punter.
Now, my memory may play a few tricks
with me aa to th exact number ot years
th above player wore th "O.H.8."

Hastings Tribune; At a wedding cere
mony in Grand Island last week the choir
sang: "This Is the way I long hav
sought, and mourned because I f iund It
ot." No doubt the choir was composed
of old maids.
Beatrice Sun: Over In Jefferaon county
a road grsder has dux up the bones of a
mastodon and thj Falrbury News man.
whose specialty la prehistoric, harks
back to the beKlnnln of things, away
back beyond the farthest reach of the
Idest Inhabitant recollection. and
raw an accurate picture of how things
looked In Nebraska when the mastodon
was roaming at lame. Probably, if the
real facts were knocv:i, the road grader
collided with the carcass of a cow. and
Imagination did the rest. The tendency
for grading and well boring machines to
exhume the remains of the late mastodon
family Is due for a rebuke.
Fremont Tribune: Let It not be forgot
ten that the proper classification of re
publicans, If there Is to bo any distinction
drawn, Is not progressives and standpat
ters, but prosrr?sft!vcs and Insurgents. All
republicans sre progressives. The re
publican party was organized as a pro
gressive ratty and It tins brilliantly
served the country by wisely meeting
every need in Its rapid progress.
Fremont Tribune: Champ Clark tours
the district by special train, which Is
good evidence that somebody with a long
purse is again financing the congressional
campaign. It Is hardly probable that nny
of MclClllip's .',il,(X0 is left over for this
year's work and so It would be oil the
more interesting to know Junt where the
money Is coming from this time. Of
course It will not appear in the sworn
statement of any candidate's expendi
tures. Rushvlllo Recorder: Governor Aldrlch's
speech at Falls City last Saturday night
makes us feci proud that we know him.
as his fearless, truthful and logical reply
to W. J. Bryan Is the best speech of
the campaign. At one time it scorned as
though everyone was afraid to reply to
the peerless one, In hla attempt to play
the spider and th fly to the progressive
wing of the republican party. The gov

selfishness of the advice of Mr. Bryan,

Bridgeport News-Blade: Secretary of
State Wait will suggest an amendment to
the present crippled primary law, which
will read rs follow: "No perana not a
candidate at a primary election shall re
ceive a nomination by having a name
written on a ballot unless such person
shall receive twenty-five or more Votes
and file within te,i days after said vote is
canvassed, with the proper officers an
acceptance and a receipt from the treas
urer of the county in which sach person
resides, showing payment of the fee aa
required from regular candidates filing
for nomination at primary elections." The
