A Good Point Saiwd.
- la whatever investigation It makes
of the so-called money trust, congress
should carefully avoid action that
would tend merely to prejudice pub
Uo opinion against the banks of the
country. A very good point in this
connection waa raised In the house
by Congressman Vreeland,. who said:
Tha people of this country know ao tit
tle, have a chance to tied out ao little,
bout these great floanclAl affairs fas
the eUlee that I believe it will be educA
tSonai to them, and. poaatbly, to some of
tha members af the house, to knew more
of the arest business of the country and
tew It ta conducted. But what I object
to, Kr. BpeAker, In some of the resolu
tions that have baea presented to tho
heuae, is tha runtae out with a preamble
which dad Area that "certain treat

lAtloa of the taws of the United Bmlea,
"are unlAwfully astng their deposits sad
attemptinc to rob the nubile, are endAa
sartna the deposits at thetr easterners."
and, therefore, be It resolved that we
will appoint a committee ta se and find
out whether there la snrthinf la It, 1
think that la a dancareus prooedare.
And so must other thouf htful per
sons think It I a dangsroua pro
cedure. And even It all that these
carelessly-worded resolutions charge
were true. It weald still he dangerous
for the simple reason that tha conse
quences of Impaired confidence In the
banks fall heaviest on ths people. The
hanks caanot sustain the whole In
Jury or burden. The perversion of
this Investigation msrsly to excite
unjustified suspicion, should, fcr
the good of all concerned, be studi
ously guarded against As a matter of
education, whether anything more
comes of it or not the Investigation,
properly conducted, might be
profitable, but it would bring op on
tsa wrong side of the ledger If all it
accomplished waa to destroy popular
faith In the banks, t
and advertising, for the state really
has not done as much of that as It
should bars and will In the future.
Congratulations are due all around
on the accession of Postmaster 'Whar
ton to the office of which he has
just taken charge. ' - .
The welcome accorded him by the
poetofflce clerks and carriers, and
employes generally, indicates that the
change affords them an overdue re
lief, and that 'they have centered
great expectations npon serving
under a new head who,' not only
stands high in ths community, but
Inspires their confidence.
The Bee can well repeat what it
said at the time Mr. Wharton's selec
tion aa postmaster waa made public:
It goes without saying that the new
postmaster haa a man'a Job in front of
htm to restore efficiency In a thoroughly
demoralised Institution, and make It fully
responsive to the growing Beads of the
community. This task cannot be per
formed la a week, or a month, yet Its
accomplishment will measure ths suooesa
of the postmaster, la working out the
problem he will be entitled to the sup

Ilii Appeal of the lebruka
The government's statistics on
agriculture la Nebraska make a po
tent appeal to the man with money
to Invest in farming land under the
most favorable conditions. From
1100 to lilt the value of farm prop
erty, Including the land, live stock,
equipment and improvements. In
creased 11,131.111,000, or 170.1 per
cent The average value of an acre
of Nebraska farm land, with build
ings, today Is 041.85; without build
ings, f 1.80. Ths minimum average
value, according to count! ss, is 14.00,
and the maximum, till and over.
When It Is remembered that a large
part of the western halt of the stats
new, unsettled and land unim
proved, the significance of these fig-
urea may' be appreciated. First of
all. It should be remembered that
they are not the fictitious values
fixed by land boomers, but ths tangl
ble valuations determined by the gov
ernment's critical experts, oa the
basis of what the land actually pro
duces. This new portion ot the state

Central labor Exchanges.
The commission Investigating the
problem of Chicago's 185,000 Idle
men has promptly come to the con
clusion that at the outset the city
should maintain a central labor ex
change, where Idle men may go and,
free of charge, find work. The Idea
is for the employers seeking help to
communicate with the exchange and
tor the unemployed to do the same.
In fact, tor the exchange to become
absolutely the headquarters for in
formation pertaining to the whole
labor situation, equipped with ex
perts capable of meeting the de
mands on both sides.
This look like a good plan, but It
is not to be regarded as a cure-all for
the problem. In the first place, as
has already been shown, a large num
ber of the Idle men bt Chicago and,
presumably, la other cities are idle
because they prefer to be.' For them
this central sxchahge can have no
particular meaning. , But for the man
honestly seeking employment,' It
should become a most helpful agency.
In Chicago and elsewhere, of course.
there are private and seml-publlo em
ployment agencies, but there is no
systematically organised plan of help
ing ths man out of a job and who
desires. to get ens.
Herd again, in this central ex-
chahgd Idea, we are borrowing from
our more conservative neighbors In
Europe. Prof. Charles R. Hendersoa
of the University ot Chicago, the ac
tive leader of this work la Chicago.
says there are twenty such exchanges
over there and they are doing excel
lent work. There seems to be no
good reason why the plan should not
work as well la this country. At least
it will do to give it a trial i
