Doing Justice to the President
Colonel Roosevelt is not likely to
Increase his popularity at the expense
of President Taft by misstating or
misrepresenting what tbe latter says
In his public speeches. It is disap.
pointing to find the ex-president at
tempting in this manner to promote
bis third-term candidacy against the
man "whom be, himself, first recom
mended to tbe American people as the
very best fitted and qualified for tbe
chief magistracy. The colonel persists
in twisting what tbe prealdent said
la his Toledo speech about popular
government. Me makes Mr. Taft say
that "hereafter we ahall act on the
theory that this Is a government of
the people, for the people and by a
representative part or class of tbe
Here is what President Taft really
aaid on that point:
In recognition of this, the tendency from
earliest times In our history haa been the
enlargement of the electorate to Include
In the ultimata source of governmental
power a many a possible of those
governed. But evea today the electorate
Is not more In number than one-fourth
of the total number of those who are
el tl sens of the nation, and an the people
for whom the government Is maintained
and whose rights and happiness the gov
ernment Is Intended to secure. Mora than
this, government by unanimous vote of
th electorate la Impossible, and, there
fore, the majority of th electorate must
rule. t i , .
We find, therefore, "that goverament by
th people la, under our present system.
government by a majority of one-fourth
01 those who lights and happiness are
to be affected by th course and conduct
of th government. This Is th nearest
to government by the whole people w
have ever had. In other words,
th elect orat la a representative gov
erning body for the whole people for
which tn government was established,
and tbe controlling majority of the
electoral la a body still ls numerous.
It le thus apparent that ears le a gov-
rnment of all the people by a repre
sentative part of the people.
Colonel Roosevelt says be! believes
In a square deal. Mr. Taft Is entitled
to square deal. At St Louis be
said: "I'd . a million times rather
lose the campaign and get justice
than to win it without Justice." Mr.
Taft is also entitled to Justice.
Fortifying the Fan ami.
A pet argument of those opposing
fortification of the Panama canal
has been that it would offend ' the
policy of neutrality snd therefore
other nations. Emperor William's
advlee to General Ooethels in favor
of strong fortifications Is an answer
to that But in the first plsce, we
should not confuse neutrality with
fortification. The canal may be
neutral and yet be' formidably forti
fied; .
As matter of fact, tbe president,
General Ooethels and others who
have given their best thought to this
question are eonvtneett -that - neu
trality of tbe canal can only be
guaranteed by fortifications, and
that it Is idle to think of neutralis
ing the canal merely by convention.
These authorities also agree that
not only is there nothing in the
treaty under whcb the canal was
authorised against ' fortifications.
bu that. the treaty specifically ad
vocates it , t
With all due regard for the cause
of world peace,' la which we all
ahouid enlist, is it quite fair to other
nations to invite their patronage of
this great waterway without offering
to them tbe protection which ade
quate fortification would give? It
la not offending theee nations to
make the canal secure from selture
or attack: oa tbe contrary. It would
be offending them not to do to. And
shea, here le the United States
spending nearly 1400,000,000 upon
a great structure subject to dsnger.
Ia it good buslneee for the United
Btatee not to Insure this property
against loss the best It may? Would
It or a private Individual think of
leaving uninsured any other euch
investment? Fortifying the canal ia
almply Insuring It insuring this la
vestments of upwards of s75,OO0,-
And there Is still another strong
appeal for fortification: The two
prime objects la building the Pan
ama canal were to promote our trade
expansion ny removing certain
natnral obstacles aad to strengthen
our detente and augment our naval
efficiency. Thle we do by bringing
into practical articulation the widely
detached lines of eur fleet a upon the
Atlantis aad Pacific So, whether
we neutralise the canal or not, busi
ness aad diplomatic considerations
seem to urge Its fortification.
Tbe government, through the De
partment M Aai.uiw, uaa sent
Broadcast the report of its finding of
poor seed corn ae a general thing aad
especially In tbe big corn-growing
states. It nrges all farmers to exer
cise tbe greatest skill and care ia tbe
selection of their seed.
Omaha aad Nebraska, hroagh the
Omaha Commercial club aad the
state agriculturists, appear te have
keen ia tbe vanguard on this prop
osition. In this eosnection tome of
the supersensitive husbandmen who
took exceptions of this voluntary aid
to them shoald be willing at least
to divide their criticism between our
local benefactors aad Uncle 8a a.
But, seriously, tbe farmers bsve
need for, perfaspe, greater care this
year than they have bad for many
eeasone, aad this is not n matter la
which farmers only are isle rested:
the whole country la deeply eoa
eerned. for we are still aa agricnl
tarsi people, vitally dependent apoa
ihe farm. Every one of us still owes
allegiance to King Corn and, there
fore, we have a right to suggest
things for hit prosperity and health.
Here Is a bit of advice from the
Department of Agriculture expert
which we desire to repeat:
I advise the farmers to plant the best
teed they ran get They should us i
let ted ' eorn on the cob, each ear of
which haa been tested for germination;
and If they have tn ue shelled corn
ahouid test It and plant enough, depend
ing on tbe percentage of germination to
Insur a good stand.
Wife and Wag-es.
Mrs. Harvey W. Wiley, wife of
tbe former chief chemist of the De
partment of Agriculture, is out with
s radical plan for revolutionizing the
home, insuring domestic tranquillity
snd enforcing the relative rights of
the wife. It is summed up in this:
Right now the wife Is the only hard
working human animal who gets nothing
for ber ten or twelve, sometimes sixteen
hours' of hard labor a day. Perhaps she
Is given board and lodging, but even eer-
ants get more than that I believe th
time is near when laws will be passed
giving the wife a part of th salary,
baaed upon th husband's income, and It
should be one-third,- never lest than one-
fourth, of hit salary.
The Denver Republican went to the
trouble of having several women of
that city Interviewed on the aubject
and, while most of them disagreed
with Mrs. Wiley's view. It wss as
tonishing that nearly all of them
gave It serious attention.
Of course, a man wltb n wife will
ing to apend all the money that shs
can get her handa on, regardless of
the family's needs, Is to be pitied,
Jutt aa tbe woman la whose huaband
neglects her and the children for his
own selfishness, but It does not fol
low from the fact thst extremes of
this kind obtain, that a law enforcing
an equal division of the cash between
man and wife would contribute any
thing to the domestic tranquillity of
ths home or felicity between man
and wife. When it becomes nec sa
lary to lower the home to the level
of commercial transaction, where Its
conduct must be governed In detail
by legal provision, it will be about
time to think of reconstructing the
whole institution. '
It seems to us that ths wife who
measures her part In the home, ber
Influence in making Its life and ex
ample felt upon herself, her huaband
and her children, from the dollar
stsndard, needs, not so much n Det
er dlvialoa of her husband's weekly
wages as an entirely new conception
of ber relation and duty aa a wife
and mother.
Tbe Aurora Republican puts ons
evsr on Congressman Norrts by
pointing out that when the sugar
tariff was up, ths Nebrsska man of
fered a bounty amendment to aave
the beet sugar producera from an
nihilation, declaring that wltbout
this relief the proposed sugsr tariff
would favor the Sugar trust and
thsn, after the amsndmsnt .was re
jected, voted for the bill which he
said the Sugar trust wanted. One
thing wbtch the Republican overlook!
le that a political campaign la on in
which Congressman Norrla Is seeking
promotion to tbs senate, and that a
reformer chasing votes has aa much
right to play both sides of tbs street
as any one else.
The democrats In control of our
county board last fall voted the vot
ing machlnee out of commission, but
the democrats In control in South
