A good man gone wrong in trying to find the pie counter. 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 banka," lawfully esistlnc anler the racu 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. Fottmaiter Wharton. 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 port and assistance of both the employes inside, and the patrons outside, of ths office. We believe this characterization fits ths case In a pre-eminent degree. In the meantime, the convention delegates elected from day to day are being recalarty Instructed for President Taft As was naturally to be expected. the democratlo World-Herald offers eonsoling balm to the outgoing re publican postmaster. Coming to close ipoa the heois of the two national conventions this yesr, s sane fourth of July will seem as dull as a Quaker Sunday, It haver rains but It pours. The construction of two Platta river power canala by two different sets of promoters now confronts us.

Candidates for congressional nomt- nation are beginning to compete la Mbe construction of personal plat : forms designed to catch the elusive voter. The strange similarity of 'poms of ths planks would Indicate a , decided sameness of purpose. ! ; Tfie Lienor league nas put up a set iof seven candidates for commissioner 'supposed to etaad in with organised ; labor. Another list will later be pro 'duced by state-makers supposed to represent organised capital. But of course, there will be su politics In 'our Impending municipal election. ; The San. Francisco Chronicle per- sists that "California la for Taft" will be recalled that ataff corre 'spondent for the Chicago Tribune wired his paper when the president was on his western, tour that "there 'are not enough anti-Tart men ta Baa Francisco to can aa eiectio booth.' If they are still counting straw votes, hero ia one. If those World-Herald figures ' making the water plant produce aa annual net profit of tl75,9J above all running expenses and Interest charges were correct they weald ctm siitate the greatest Indictment of all against our Water board for not eagerly acquiescing ia the appraise- mes when made six years ago, and by this time chalking a credit balance of 1.59.9 to tke ity. rari 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 In the west la aa empire ot itself, Cherry county alone having an area larger than that of Rhode Island and Connecticut combined, or than three eastern states separately, and land In Cherry county and other counties ad jacent ia so ebeap now only tor want of Improvement and development not for want ot natural roaouroea. Thla ia only a hint ot ths future ot the state. Nebraska's crop values have rises with Its land values, Its annual cereal output a year now bringing about tlSs.OOO.OOO. three-fifths of which represents the Income from corn alone. Out ot every 100 farmer la 1000, eighty-seven raised some corn. so that com la king. The average else of the Nebraska farm, like that ia most western states. Increased in the last decade and is now 207.8 acres and the total number of its farms ia 1010 was 110,078. But Nebraska outranked sons of it neixhborins states ta the proportion of farm ownera to Venters, having T0.8I0 farms operated by the owners, 017 by managers and only 10,441 by ten ants. . Another very healthy alga la la the comparatively small number of mort gages. In spite of the fact that the individual farmer is steadily lag hla holdings. Only 80,810 farms, or ii.s per coat were mortgaged 1010. As compared with tl per cent la 1800. or eves 45 per cent In 1000. this shewing is full of meaning and promise. All this progress In Ne braska, It must be borne la mind, to the result of natural process and not ot Ingenious campaigns of pttbty 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 Tho Wheel of Justice. The first official act ot Postmaster Wharton is to order restoration , of Letter Carrier Tlllotson to the route from which he waa arbitrarily re moved to wreak the vengeance of the former postmaster. " i Letter Carrier Tlllotson manfully refused to be a passive victim of offi cial despotism, and made complaint In which be preferred charges which he offered to prove. Every charge Letter Carrier Tlllot son made was fully sustained In the evidence produced before the gov ernment Inquisitors, . and having made good on hla promises, he I entitled to have his grievance re dressed. '-- .',' ;., " This award of justice to Letter Carrier Tlllotson must reassure ail the postotflce employee, who ask only honest dealing and fair treatment on their merits. The "Pros resolve Republican lOAgue" of Taxes, which indorsed Taft for re aomlnatioa thla week, has tho same right to eaU Itself proereeslve that Senator Larimer's orteniaatfoa la Illinois has te esll Itself the Lincoln BepubUcaa league. Kansas City Star. This is the same "Progressive R publican league' that waa support ing La Follette In Texas and only left hi banner when he virtually eliminated himself from the race. ror a lew cays, therefore, it waa a close question whether It would throw Its support to Taft or to Roose velt It was "progressive," of course, to th Star, so long as It waa back of La Follette, and would bare beea still "proereeslve" had It gone over to Kooeeveiu in Texas it is the "ma china" crowd that has ths Roosevelt end. .
