A Crime Against a Community.
The termination of the receiver
ship of the Independent Telephone
company by forced tale under court
order is the consummation of a great
crime against a whole community.
Not that the receivership or the
judicial sale constitutes a crime, but
that' the enterprise taken altogether
from its Inception, its acquisition of
a valuable' franchise to operate in
Omaha by false representation, its
blue-sky financing, its construction
ring rakeoff, marks a gigantic crim
inal conspiracy which has robbed
hundreds and thousands of poor peo
ple of savings they could illy afford
to lose, and saddled upon- our city
an absolutely unnecessary interest
burden of several million dollars
without any adequate return.
The Bee takes pride In the fact
that, despite popular clamor for a
competitive telephone, it openly op
posed and r discouraged this fake
scheme from the start, believing It
could see through the mercenary and
corrupt motives behind It, and the
inevitable disaster ahead of It. We
recall the record now, not in any
"I-told-you-eo" spirit, but that tha
costly lesson may not be wholly lost.

For his personally conducted ac
count of the Baltimore convention,
which the chief editor of Senator
Hitchcock's newspaper is compound

Let there be no mistake about this con

it, and Ryan and Belmont are detested.
But when it was set up In type,
snd appeared in the columns of our
amiable democratic contemporary,
this Is the way It read:
Let there be no mistake about this con
vention. Tammany Is not popular with
It, and Bryan and Belmont are detested.

dently knew better, and by inspira

No Time for a Strike.
Officers of the International Union
of Shop Employes on all the rail'
roads west of the Mississippi river
are credited with the public state
ment that they have been authorised
by vote or the shopmen to call a
general strike if the railroads fall to
grant a conference upon the issues
at stake. A strike Is also threatened
among the trainmen on the Pennsyl
vania lines. It these strikes should
transpire business would be virtually
stagnated for a time. For that rea
son It is preferable to believe that
better council will prevail. Neither
the workmen nor their employers
can be Indifferent to the injury and
injustice to the public, to say nothing
of their own mutual interests. There
fore, no matter what the grievances
are, they , should be redressed in
some other way.
Mutuality of Interest.
It has been said that labor unions
were first to appreciate the interna
tional scope of industrial uplift. The
blacksmiths of London) some halt
century ago, spoke of their interests
as being International, realizing that
over the eeas in America other
blacksmiths were confronted with
problems the same In general as
those of their, own in England.
Today all, labor unions are Inter
national In theory, if not in opera
tion, Their chain U one that links
together men of all countries in one
common bond of mutual benefit., It
is to their credit that they came so
early to the large conception of their
rank. But organized labor, as well
as capital, has one other conception
which it must broaden, and that Is
the mutuality of interest between
employe and employer. Of course,
It will promptly be said that both
do now realise this, but we have only
to look about where some contro
versy between them Is going on to
see that they do not recognize It to
the degree that they should. Just
this step needs to be taken, not
more by labor than by capital, but
equally by both, to give completeness
to their cause which the larger weV
fae of society demands. ,
End of the Two-Thirds Rule.
. Inasmuch as their candidate polled
more than a majority of all the dele
gate strength of the convention, the
Clark forces naturally feel that they
have been undone by the two-thirds
rule,, custom having previously given
the needed two-thirds as soon as a
majority vote was scored. But what,
pray, does custom or precedent
amount to In politics today? Be
side, if It were tacitly understood
that a candidate with a simple ma
jorlty was entitled to receive enough
more votes to give him two-thirds,
then what argument would there be
for the two-thirds rule at all?
The fact Is, however, that con
Unuation of the two-thirds rule Is
now menaced by the abolition of the
time-honored unit rule. The unit
rule and the two-thirds rule have
been complements to each other and
with one gone, the other cannot last
long. , It Is again Interesting to point
out that the two-thirds rule was in
stituted . at Baltimore where it has
now been undermined.- It originated
in a determination of the anti-Van
Buren forces to defeat the Jackson
candidate in 1844, and it nominated
James Kpolk, remaining in effect
for these sixty-eight years, ' :
Some Truths Rising Above Political Confusion.
' Bloux City Journal.
A Pennsylvania member of congress It
reported to have sald:,"Th republican
electors who have been chosen In Penn
sylvania have been Instructed for Theo
dore Roosevelt, and they will vote for
him." Similar statements have been made
with reference to tha republican electors
in California and certain other presiden
tial primary states. It Is not easy to de
cide whether they are based on deliber
ate attempt to befog a situation with
which the publlo Is not familiar or
whether they are due to honest confusion
over the Intrusion of state laws In
national presidential polities.
If anyone will reflect for a few mo
ments he will tee the absurdity of the
statement that the republican electors of
Pennsylvania or any other state were
Instructed for any presidential candidate.
Tha republican electors in Pennsylvania
were nominated at the same primary at
which the delegate to the national re
publican convention ? were elected. At
that time, of course, there was no re
publican nominee for president, although
several candidate were In the field for
the nomination. The republican voters
Statement of Taft Delegates from Massachusetts.
Through a committee of three of their
members the Taft delegates of Mease-
chusetts to the republican convention
have Iseued the following statement,
telling of the troubles of the delegation:
'The Taft delegates from Massachu
setts, deeming that the people of the
state should know of the several suaa
tlone that arose at the Chicago con
vention, have requested the undersigned
to prepare and present a statement out
lining their position on the several issues
that arose for their determination. .
'The first duty presented to the dele
gates was to select representatives for
the four following Important positions:
Chairman of the delegation, national com
mitteeman, member of the committee on
credentials and member of ' the commit
tee on resolution. Representatives from
the Taft delegation interviewed some et
the Roosevelt delegate and found that
they favored the return of Senator Crane
to a place on the national committee.
The Taft delegates, In turn, were willing
to eoacede the chairmanship of tn dele
gation and the place on the credentials
committee to the Roosevelt men.
When Colonel Roosevelt heard that
some ef bis Massachusetts delegate were
favoring Senator Crane he sent tor all of
the eighteen delegates and Informed them
that under no circumstances should they
favor Senator Crane for national com
mitteeman. They delivered In conse
quence an ultimatum to the effect that
someone other than Senator Crane should
bt elected or that the eleotlon should be
postponed until after the convention. The
Taft men did net feel that they could
In any way Indorse such a position, nor
did they feel that they should take
orders from Colonel Roosevelt, a man
whose candidacy had not been favored by
a majority et the republicans of Massa
chusetts. "We therefore ceased our negotiations
with the Roosevelt representatives, al
lowed them to nominate candidates tor
the various positions that the delegation
was entitled to and w did the same. Thee
names were sent to the sscertary of the
convention. We felt that If Mr. McQev-
ern was selected temporary chairman h
would then name on the committee the
Roosevelt men and that If Mr. Root was
selected he would name the Taft men.
Mr. Root, however, In view of the con
test before the convention, did not wish
to favor either side and made no ap
pointments at all. Under all the circum
stances this was the only fair eourse for
him to pursue.
- . fr . . . . - -
Contested Delegates.
As regards the contested delegates, we
deny In the most emphatlo manner pos
sible that there was any thievery or
fraud, and desire In as brief a manner as
possible to outline the actual situation .
When the convention met Mr. Roosevelt
was ninety votss short ef a majority. He
promptly entered a contest against ninety-two
delegates and requested that those
men be denied the privilege of voting on
any question until those eontests had been
decided by the credential committee. The
ohalrman ruled, and this ruling was suit
talned by the convention, that no dtls-
Sate could vote on the question of tht
validity of his own right to a seat in the
convention, but that on other questions
h could vote. The chairman elted In
numerable precedent In support of this
ruling, ana pointed out that If this was
not done the minority tn any convention
could, without advancing any reason for
their action, contest a Sufficient number
of the majority to place the majority In
the minority, and In that way the erlg
nal minority would become the majority
and be in complete control. These eon
tests were referred to the committee on
credentials. On this committee there were
at least thirteen Roosevelt men out of
th fifty-two. . '
It should be borne in mind thai in order
to have control of the convention Mr.
Roosevelt needed the vote of nearly all
ef the delegate that he contested. The
credentials committee, however, unani
mously reported In favor of th four Taft
delegatea-at-large from Georgia end the
two district delegate from the Fifth
Louisiana district, so that there certainly
could be no charge of fraud in the case
of these six delegates, a the report was
unanimous from all faction, and the
seating of these delegates wa in Itself,
n all probability, sufficient to deprive
Mr. Roosevelt of control of th conven
tion. : ,t ' - v y
In the case of the district delegate
from the Second Mississippi district th
Second Tennessee district th Fifth Vir
ginia district, Fourth North Carolina and
Third Oklahoma distrlots, no minority re
port were submitted by th committee on
credenvUIa, so that th only thing the
convention could do wa to accept th
only report that was made. ' This covered
ten other delegate, and a th minority
made no report the convention wa bound
to feel that, there was so evidence of
fraud in these case.
The Cry of rrad.
In th case of the contest of the two
delegates of the Ninth Alabama district
one or more of the Roosevelt men of the
committee en credentials voted to seat
these two delegate and In m roll call 506
of th delegates voted to accept the
majority report; some forty or fifty
Roosevelt delegates, therefore, voted with
the Taft delegates. In many of the re
maining contest th majority of the
committee on credential not only re
of Pennsylvania were given a chance
to express their choice, between these
ca ndlda tea , In- electing delegates to the
national republican convention. The re
publican voters of Pennsylvania did issue
some Roosevelt instructions at that pri
mary. In a majority of the districts
they elected Roosevelt delegates to the
republican national convention, virtually
Instructing those delegates to- vote for
Roosevelt in the national convention. Not
all the delegates were so Instructed, how
ever. A minority of the districts in
structed their delegates to vote for
President Taft. The Instructions to the
delegates had netting whatever to do
with Instructions to electors. If they had,
elector from the Roosevelt districts
would be Instructed tor Roosevelt and
electors from Taft districts would be
Instructed for Taft. The fact was that all
electors were in effect Instructed to vote
tor the nominee -of the national repub
lican convention, whether he be Taft or
Roosevelt' As Taft happened to get the
nomination all the republican electors
Of Pennsylvania will be instructed, if
elected In November, to vote tor Taft
ported to th convention their finding,
but reported much of th evidence upon
which that finding wa based. The
Roovelt men on th committee, how
ever, failed to make statements giving
any reason for their findings, tinder the
circumstances there was nothing left for
the convention to do but accept the re
port of the majority. Por Mr. Roosevelt
to cry fraud and thievery undtr these
conditions i exactly parallel to the case
of the man in court who presents no
evidence to the jury In support of his
contentions and then cries that the Jury
1 corrupt because they have acted upon
the only evidence submitted to them In
th court. , ' , '
It should be recalled further that In
every case, etcept, perhaps, in the case
of the contest over the two delegates
from California, some Rooseveut men
voted with the Taft men to accept the
report of the committee on credentials.
As th California case was the strongest
one, perhaps, presented by th Roosevelt
adherents, a word should be said con
cerning this, although the decision, of
eourse, could In no way have affected
the final result, as the vote of only two
delegates were concerneu.
The California Case.
In republican national conventions It
has been the rule that two delegates
should be elected from each congres
sional district In addition to delegatea-at-large.
The legislature of California, con
sisting of democrat as well a repub
lican, voted to abrogat this rule by
denying the right of congressional dis
tricts to sslect delegates and compelling
the slection of all dlgata-at-large.
This would have resulted, It approved by
the convention tn the adoption of , the
unit rule, a thing always prohibited in
republican convention and the very thing
that Mr. Bryan is attempting to abro
gate in the democratic convention. To
have recognised th right of any state to
control a national convention of the re
publican party would result perhaps, In
democratic legislatures tn democratic
states passing legislation specifying how
delegates to a republican national con
vention should be eleoted, and In that
way control a republican convention. The
convention at Chicago, therefore, refused
to recognise such a precedent and seated
the two delegates from the Fourth Cali
fornia district who appeared to have a
majority of the votes cast in that dis
trict. ' ' !
When the cry of tMevery and fraud Is
made it should be remembered that seated
In ths Chicago convention were men who
have rendered distinguished service to
their country not only in the halls of
legislation, but on the field of battle.
To charge men who have risked their
lives in defense of their country of being
participants in thievery and fraud under
the circumstances above outlined nat
urally arouses the indignation of every
fair-minded cltiten.
Votes by Alternates.
We wish also to set forth the conditions
that resulted in the calling of the alter-nates-at-Iarge
when the Roosevelt dele
gates refused to vote, because Mi Roose
velt has declared that this also was an
Instance of stealing votes on the part of
the Taft adherents. It will be recalled
that Immediately after th prlmarie in
Massachusetts, Mr. Roosevelt instructed
the dlegate-at-large. in view of th
preference of Massachusetts dtisens, to
vote for Mr. Taft He It scarcely, there
fore, in a position to complain that when
th name of these same delegate were
called and upon their refusal to vote two
of th alternales-at-large cast thlr votr s
In favor of th vry man whom h him
self had requested the delegates to vote
for. : .
It delegates to a convention refuse to
vote the deliberations of the convention
are absolutely halted, and It was to pre
vent Just such a contlnrtncy that alter,
nates were provided ftsr, and any parlia
mentarian will agree that when the name
of a delegate is called and he refuses t
vote, the name of the alternate should
then be called In his stead. ,
In conclusion we ask the people of Mas
sachusetts to look Into the facts surround
tng tha contest at Chicago; we ask them
to remember that the hurling et epithets
and abuse is not a statement of evidence
and we are confident that when the facts
are examined and considered the publlo
at large win agree that the Taft dele
Stee from Massachusetts pursued the
only just and possible course that could
be pursued In view of the evidence before
them, and they will be pleased at any
and all time to answer any questions
that may be propounded concerning th
conditions that arose at Chicago.
