The Rnsso-Persian Mixnp.
Persia. Runslu, KngSsnd and the
t'nited States Rre In one way and
another involved In the RusHO-Per-lan
dispute now lending vivacity to
the general turmoil of nations.
Whether this -Is a case of the sur
vival of the fittest between the crar
and the 6hsh or not, the United
States can afford to proceed slowly
tewsrd yielding to any appeal for in
tervention from the Teheran govern
ment. We have a little matter of
some seventy years' standing of our
own to settlo with Rtisala, and our
people have about made up their
minds to settle it, at last. The great
American nation has finally been
hhamed into resenting Russia's per
sistent audacity In denying treaty
rights to certain of our citizens and
we ought to get this off hand before
talkng up another nation's quarrel
with the czar.
Tho exruHo Persia has for looking
to us for help rests on the slender
fact that an American citizen, W.
Morgan Khuster, ns prime minister
of the shah's finances, is In the thick
of tho fight with Russia; in fact, Is
the center of It. Mr. Shuster seems
to have rehabilitated Persia's fi
nances so well as to arouse remark
able nn.vlety in Russia and norc than
ordinary concern In Knjlnnd. RuhsIb

knows not, but over coniething, that
It hns decided to pounce down on
Persia with arniort troops utiles the
shah comes to time with certain repa
ration for theso "Impositions." Tho
shah, on tho other hand, seems to,
think that if any reparations are to
bo pu&st'd out he Is the one to re
ceive, not give, them.
Evidently Russia has determined
that now would be a good time to
partition Persia and England seems
to think that if any partitioning is
to be done, she might as well get in
on tho ground floor, for we sen that
a few lines of British Indian. soldiery
have been moved up toward Teheran.
In the meantime, Mr. Shustcr may
have to leave Persia, but ho went
there of his own accord and ho prob
ably can leavo without discommoding
his country by dragging it into the
nilxup. Russia for a long time has
regarded Persia as its "sphere of In
fluence," and It resented Rhustera
going there with such large 'powers
in the first place, so it was to bay
been expected that the Intrigue of
Russian diplomacy would figure out
a way of making trouble in time.
Idle Cars ai a Business Gauge. -
The number of idle freight cars la
usually taken as one gauge to bus!
ness. If It is a safe gauge, the status
of business is far from discouraging.
Whllo the number of idle cars in the
United States and Canada is slightly
more now than It was two weeks ago,
it Is not what is considered large.
Two pr three weeks ago the number
was 20,532 and now It Is about
27,000, that is, net. The gross fig
ures are 39,306 and 45,290.
The difference is not especially in
dicative of a falling off lu business,
for the number of cars at this sea
son of thq year Invariably Increases,
when, of courso, from natural causes,
even in tne best or years, traffic
diminishes. But when the effect of
several railroad strikes Is takeu Into
consideration, together with certain
other unseasonable factors, the show
ing Is exceptionally good.
This Is tho first increase in Idle
care, according to the Wall Btreet
Journal, that has been noted stneo
July; another sure evidence of a
well-sustained traffic demand. What
Is apparent from every thermometer
of business is the fact that we are
going Into the winter much better off
than might have been expected some
months back. Many lines of trade
and commerce that sagged seriously
a few months ago, are tightening
with promise of taking up sttlt more
of the slack as the cold weather
progresses. We are sure to come to
the first of the year in very healthful
form. Fall trading has been good, de
rounds In nearly all lines increasing,
crops turn out better than forecasted
and Industry as a whole enjoys a
measure of peaceful prosperity that
helps to lend cheer to the entire situ
ation. The Contract Doctors.
Our local medical, association Is
wrestling with the question of con
tract doctors, and has gone duly on
record, through a. committee dele
gated to formulate an official expres
sion, against the pernicious practice-
According to this pronouncement, it
is not only unprofessional to render
medical service under contract at
wholesale rates, but It Is also bad
for tho patieut, and bad for the
doctors, particularly for the doctors
who are thus prevented from render
log the service at retail rates.
We sympathize thoroughly with
the objection, to contract doctoring
If there were enough contracts to go
around, so that every doctor could
have bis, It might not be so repre
hensible, but when the doctors are
many and the contracts few the
young and Inexperieuced doctor, Just
out of college with a practice to
build up, is pretty sure to be the low
bidder. Any system that keep these
fledilii.ga busy while older men, with
large reputations, hsve to sit In their
offices waiting for patients, Is irre-
A a mutter of fact, the doctor
who takes a contract to give medical
attention to all members of a society
or lc1; or fruloiffl c! a rrrrr'iejnasiun to rout
or Industrial establishment goes into
it ss a sort of advertisement, ex
pecting thereby to get other more
remunerative business, and if adver
tising in a newspaper Is unprofes
sional, so ought this kind of adver
tising to be. So we Join in the cry
of "Down with the contract doctor."
We think he ought to be expelled
from every reputable medical society.
Perhaps the law could be amended
to make such contracts void as
against public policy, and certainly
the Hlppocratlc oath can be revised
so as to bind each new medical grad
uating class against participating In
this unpardonable business. For,
strangely enough, thero can be no
contract doctoring without a doctor
willing and eager to undertake the
The Kansas Tarrinj Party.
Out in Shady Bend, Lincoln
county. Kansas, the word, "tar,"
grates on the ears of the delicately
refined populace and when a certain
court proceeding Is completed it
probably will not be safe for anyone
to let t,hat little word slip through
his lips. And from now on a threat
will carry weight In Shady Ilend.
Tar fulls Into disrepute there from
the startling fact that n company of
prominent and chivalrous men got
together, lured a lone girl out into a
country road on a dark night and
smeared lior body with tar. These
prominent, chlvalroun men arc now
on trial, several of them having con
fessed they woro so chivalrous.
Thus fur tho Only crime apparently
alleged against the young woman Is
that she was more popular In the
community than some other women
there and this got on the nerves of
some of the better element at least
those who regarded themselves the
better element of women and they
mouthed her name in such connec
tions as to arouse tho righteous In
dignation of their splendid husbands
and brothers with the result that
they, combining their prowess in the
darkness of night, went forth to
avengo their wives' and daughters'
Nothing that has occurred in this
country In a long while quite matches
up to this Kansas depredation for
devilish cowardice and as Kansas Is
the place where Justice always tri
umphs, It is to be hoped the law gov
erning this case will do its duty.

OMAHA, Nov. 20,-To the Editor of The
Bee: With resard to the recent conven
tion of the Midwest Implement Dealers
I wish to say that this Is an organiza
tion that Omaha can well afford to en
courage. These Implement dealers from
VK to 1,000 of them come to Omaha each
year without asking any help from the
Commercial club except the furnishing
of a few hundred badges, while many
other conventions must have several
thousand dollars from the Commercial
club In order to meet their expenses. By
the splendid help of the Omaha vehiclo
dealers and tha use of tha Auditorium for
their convention and exhibit tho Mid
west Implement De.tlers have been
enabled to meet all their expenses and
have a good time and an Interesting
convention, and I have made a contract
with them for another year.
I am very glad to say that the spirit of
antagnnlKm which existed a few years
aito between some of the local Jobbing
housfa and the outside exhibitors Is rap
Idly passing away. 1 believe that by next
year this can be made one of the big
gatherings of the year. I have had a
great deul of discouragement In years
past In trying to build up this convention,
but with tha spirit of co-operation that
now exists among the local Jobbers we
will soon be able to build this organi
sation up to a membership of 2,000 In
stead of 1,000. Kansas City has an im
plement convention every year that
brings In 3,000 business mi from the
surrounding territory. De Moines has
a convention that brings In about 2,000.
Tl.ere is no good reason why Omaha
should not do as well and 1 believe we
are now on the right track. -
There Is one very important feature of
this gathering that I wish 'particularly to
mention. That, la the opportunity pre
sented for Omaha to tecure new, Indus
tries and new- Jobbing houses by en
couraging these exhibitors to Jocate in
Omaha. I have-In-mind one of the ex-t
hibitors of this year who needs a better
location for his factory and this would
be a new line for Omaha and a good
one, and not In competition with houses
already established here. Omaha . Is In
need of many things In order to build
It up Into a great city and one of tbesd
Is the establishment of more fautorlei.
Not necessarily lttrgo factories, but
plenty of small Industries,' making
Omaha not only a market town, but a
manufacturing town as well. j

putting his eminent legHl adviser and
secretary of the Interior, "Jimmy" Car-
ileld, on the supreme court" bench.
Pt. Paul Dispatch: The ex-presldent's
article makes a large number of aseir-'
lions, many of them purely dogmatic,
concerning the Impossibility of making
the anlt-trust net restore competition. To
all that, it Is sufficient reply that It Is
impossible, until the courts .are suffi
ciently in earnest about It, to enforce li
in its full letter and spirit.
Hprlngfleld (Mass.) Republican: The
thing that n'ow detracts chlofly from Mr.
Roosevelt's dlscurslon of the trust ques
tion Is the Inevitable personal bias he has
on account of his relations, as president,
with the Cnlted States Steel corporation.
A heavy stock ownership In a trust ceuld
not affect him an dors his action In sanc
tioning tho absorption of the Tennessuu
Coal and Iron company. At that point
he Is on the defensive In history, and he
Is sj Jealous of his official record that
he cannot escape being affected hy per
sonal considerations when he discusses
the present situation. He seems, how
ever, to be unconscious of personal bias
and no one need question his sincerity
In this matter. Tho suggestion that he
Is now using the trust ngltatlon for self
ish political purposes is undoubtedly rub
bish. I oheard-Of Restraint I China.

In China during this most bloody and

Something unprecedented, unheard of,
