Why Era? Lincoln InT
Hearst has gone to the extreme
of calling his candidate, Champ
Clark, "the peer of Abraham Lin
coln," and "a second Abraham Lin
coln." This is enough to beat the
funny Missourian through the sheer
disgust of the American people.
There is about as much difference
between Abraham Lincoln and
Champ Clark as there could be be
tween two mortals, when it comes
to a matter of statesmanship.
Hearst's papers, in their strained
efforts to find an analogy between
the character of Lincoln and Clark,
refer to the slighting comments of
the east upon Lincoln after his first
visit there and compare them with
the east's attitude toward the funny
story telling Missourian. They Ignore
the fact that while Lincoln had come
out of private life, almost wholly
unknown when he went to New
York, Champ Clark hat for years
been dancing his didoes before the
nation, leaving no possible chance
for a lack of acquaintance any
where. If Hearst cares to send his
man before the voters on the
strength of his likeness to Lincoln
he will get some such response as
they made to bis Independence
league hurrah.
Second Bridge Denotes Growth.
A bill has gone into congress pro
viding fon the construction of a sec
ond bridge over the Missouri river
at Omaha by the Union Pacific Rail
road company.
A number of schemes and promo
ters have at different times contem
plated bridging the river here, but
they have failed, for one reason and
another, primarily because the
bridge was not needed to accommo
date traffic. That is not the case
today. A third bridge is needed.
The Union Pacific and the Illinois
Central structures are being rapidly
outgrown by the ever enlarging vol
ume of business - passing through
Omaha, the gateway of the great
empire of the west.
This second Union Pacific bridge,
then, when built will stand as a
monument to the prodigious growth,
not alone of Omaha and Nebraska,
but of that vast domain rolling In
wealth which stretches out and on
to the Pacific coast, and which is
essentially Omaha's territory. In
cidentally what the Union Pacific
has meant to the development of the
west may be but faintly glimpsed In
this move for another traffic way
across the Big Muddy.
The Wyoming Spirit at Work.
The little 'town of Buffalo, Wyo..
one of the most typical "cow" towns
of all the 'west, was almost swept
away, by a -cloudburst, suffering
financial losses running up beyond
the half-million mark. But this en
gulfing flood did not even dampen
or moisten the Wyoming spirit that
beats in the breasts of those sturdy
Buffalo folk. They scarcely waited
for the last bit of debris to drift
down the middle of the main street
to start the work of rehabilitation.
And they raised no distress signals,
sent out no appeals !or aid; they
simply buckled down with that grim
stoicism that animated the old fron
tiersman in the face of a stubborn
task and are giving a very fine ex
hibition of the fact that, while the
old west may have bad ls day, the
spirit of the old west, which Is the
spirit of Wyoming, is yet in Its hey
day, In the vigor of Its pristine
glory. The result, of course, will be
a bigger and better Buffalo.
The Power of Mr. Morgan.
The president of New York's
Stock exchange gives before the sen
ate Money trust Investigating com
mittee the Illuminating testimony
that Mr. J. P. Morgan stemmed the
tide of the 1907 panic by tossing
over to the Stock exchange 125,000,-
000, with the Instruction to George
W. Perkins to "cut that money up
into lots" and apportion It out
among several banks, at the Stock
exchange president's suggestion.
This is of value now, chiefly, as
showing accepting the statement
aa accurate the power of one man
in finances. It was a good thing to
stem the panic; it is always a good
thing to head off a crisis like that
But could not a man with such
power exercise it In another direc
tion if he chose?
This testimony, it seems to us,
gets nearer to the core of the ques
tlon as to the existence of a money
trust than any yet adduced. The
committee is making headway.
' Swearing on Street Can.
The right to. use profane language
on the rear platform ot a street car
should not be included in the privi
leges bought with the 5-centfare. If
a loose-tongued passenger finds it
necessary to use expletives that are
offensive to others more refined then
himself, especially women, he ought
to get off the car. And it he will not
of his own accord, the conductor
should have the power and the back
bone to see that he does. And if the
conductor has this power without
the backbone, then it becomes a mat
ter, for company disposition. But at
all events, the patrons of the street
railway company who object to ri
baldry on the car are entitled to
protection against it There Is noth
Ing in the law or the company's
franchise that obliges it or its
(jatrons to. tojerate such a nuisance.
THE BEE:
WHAT I . WANT TO DO FOE OMAHA
By James C. Dahlman, Mayor.
I stand now. as I stood before the recent
city election, firmly in favor of local
self-government for Omaha. I am lr-
revocably committed to this as the first
essential to a forceful and effective ad-
ministration of the commission form of
government.
Now, gome of the good people may
say. But that is putting it oir too lar
in the future." It ia and it isn't, but In
any event, it Is not my fault nor the fault
of any of my colleagues that Omaha delay action here. Every consideration
has not now the power of local self- call for immediate action. This is, in
government or that it haa to make an- deed, one of the most urgent appeals that
other fight to get that power before it comes to me as a member of this corn
can do some of the things it needs to do mission and as mayor of the city,
and which I am In favor of doing. Hera Is a matter which to some might
That, then, is the first step to keep up
the fight for a constitutional amendment
that will give Omaha a charter of its
own making and therefor enable the and walks clean and neat. I think the
city to provide adequate fund for its people of Omaha are a home-loving peo
clvil needs. pie; they take great pride in building and
When w secure this concession
through the legislature, I want to see a
charter commission of fifteen represent-
tlve citizens elected, this commission to
embrace men from every department
and section of our city's life and actlvl-
ties. Because I believe that such a com-
mission would draft a charter which
would pasa muster and which we could
reasonably count on as going Into effect,
Certainly politic nor prejudice of any
kind should have any part in the selec-
tlon of these charter maker. We mut
all act In the harmonious realization that
we are charged with a solemn duty to
ourselves and our city.
I might write out a long list of lm-
provements which I think ought to be
made In our city management right now,
without waiting for a new charter, but
that would be futile because we have not
the funds and have not the power or
the means of getting the funds required
for reaching out and making these lm-
provements. Nobody need to tell me that
our streets should be better kept, neither
mut anybody presume to tell me that,
with the funds at our command, they
could be better kept. More money is the
first essential to cleaner and better
streets and anybody who understands
the problem of this city know that.
Now, I favor public comfort stations
and more playground and, whan we are

COMMERCE COURT CALLED DOWN
Brooklyn Eagle: It looks a though the
commerce court, subject to what may be
termed recall by congr.sa, would have
to go. But It it goes, something must
take Its place If th. rights of shippers
and carrying corporations are to be saved
from long uncertainties.
New York Post: After thi Implied re
buke from the supreme court for exceed
ing lt scope, lt Is to be expected that
the commerce court will settle down to
th. work for which tt was designed, and
in the performance of which tt can be
ot undoubted usefulnesa to the public.
Springfield Republican :-It so happens
that th. supreme court's decision is on
the popular aide of the question and
against what was dealred by tb. rail
road Interests. But the supreme court
was simply true to an Interpretation of
the constitution that wa , well estab
lished and sound.
Kansas City Star: There 1 a place for
th. commerce court in relieving other
court ot th. railroad cat that would
come before them under the administra
tion ot the Interstate Commerce law, but
there I no good reason why it authority
should extend beyond that ot other court.
To allow it to do so would unnecessarily
complicate and entangle th. function

"GOD BLESS THE FLAG."
Baltimore American.
Hail to the day w clebrat.
And to our nation's sign.
The emblem of a destiny
Shaped by a fate divine.
From that first moment when its folds
Were to tb. air unfurled,
Until it came to be the mark
Of freedom to the world.
'Twss born in awful throes of pain,
'Twas wavd la bloody strife
O'er martyr heroes who their own
Gave for the nation's life;
'Twas consecrated by their right
Te cause ot liberty,
That evermore its folds should bear
The me$sag. of th. free.
That message It shall always tell.
For where that flag doth wave.
There freedom shall link hands wit
peace.
The weak come to the brave.
And in the love we bear to It
Ah, let us never lag,
And let the nation's vote today
Cry out, "Good bless our flag!"
Let me tell you about our personally conducted California
excursion; describe to me your proposed tour, let me help
you plan it and send you our frea dcriptlv publications ot
any of the above named tours and region.
