In its official publication the Com

ventures this sage conclusion: , j
Thee reductions, ranging from S per
cent to 89 per cent, are significant, es
pecially when considered along with the I
Increase In weight limit from four to
We think so, too. These reduc
tions are certainly significant, and
their real significance is the urgent
need of waking up to the early ad
vent of parcels post.
Responding to pressure from in
terested sources, our Commercial
club resoluted ' itself on record
against parcels post, and did what It
could to help block the enlargement
of the postal Bervlce to include the
small package business, but without
accomplishing what It desired. In
view of the situation, therefore, what
is wanted is a reminder to Commer
cial club members, and to Our busi
ness men generally, to come in out
of the wet and seize the fast ap
proaching opportunity. Parcels post
will force readjustment of trade in
many lines. Merchants and manu
facturers in other cities may be de
pended on to seek a mail order out

our Omaha merchants and manufac
turers to reach out for business in
the same way. 1 -
Parcels post can, and will, be made

deal more than to our disadvantage

PEESIDENT TAFT AN ECONOMIST
Effective Checks on National Waste and Extravagance.
. , Boston Transcript.
It is an honest and valuable service'
that Chairman Hlllef of the republican
national committee has rendered in show
ing to the Country so plainly the record
of comparative economy that has beea
made by the present national administra
tion. Economy has been one of the
watchwords of President Taft. not an
empty shibboleth, but a genuine purpose
that has fruited In actual achievement.
He has regarded tha substance of the
nation, aa well as its honor, a sacred
trust to be guarded by all the power at
his command. It takes executive ability
of a high order even to carry out an hon
est purpose Of such magnitude, since
waste and extravagance hare to be
guarded against at many points, but few
of these have escaped his continuous
scrutiny. -. '
Of coure legitimate expenses grow with
the growth of population and interests
and the development of territory, and the
nation has been advanolng rapidly In
these directions! yet the disbursements
have averaged six millions a year less
under President Taft than during the
last year of President Roosevelt's admin
iatratton. . when In the natural order of
events they might reasonably be expected
to be much higher. The record would
have been even brighter than that had it
not been for an extravagant congress.
There are many expensive privileges con
nected with governmental affairs, "hon
est graft" they are euphemistically called
that have gathered like barnacles on tha
ship of state, which those who have en-
Joyed them surrender only after a Strug
If what the president has accomplished
ta this direction has been at the expense
of efficiency in the public service it would
not redound to bis credit but that has
not been the case. In brief terms, he has
compelled a better use of the nation's
money than did his Immediate predeces
sor,, and yet hs has not shirked any of
the large responsibilities that confronted
him, largely as legacies. He put the
machinery in-motion for a revision of
the tariff, something that had been stead
ily evaded in the former administration
and set the Department of Justice at
work bringing suits against such trusts
and combinations as appeared to be vio
lating the provisions of the Sherman
law, and, unlike the executive whom he
succeeded, played no favorites.
All these things, cost money, but they
thin the country wanted don
and that the president felt should be
done. He has followed a constructive
policy and been loyal to hi convictions,
bis reciprocity plan being a part of it
and a part that the country approved,
until It failed to be ratified by the party
of the other part, thus falling down
through no fault of his. But his economy
record gives him one of the strongest
elaims upon the confidence and gratitude
Of the people. Unfortunately prodigality
in the public service is not challenged
by public opinion to the extent that It
should be and the public servant who
strives to correct It makes, ho play tc
the galleries. He must work with patient
attention to details and this President
Taft has done. He has not gone about
proclaiming from the housetops ' the
economies that have been effected, and
it is therefore timely for Chairman Hilles
or someone else to give the country the
story that the figures tell. The people
and the political orators have much to
say about "government economically con
ducted." If they are sincere in their d
sire for it; if It means more to them than
a mouth-filling phrase, they . will give
their vntes and confidence to the man
who has labored with so much earnest
ness of purpose to make it a fact With
his experience, in another four years
President Taft could improve even upon
his resent record. .

More than 3M,o30,009 was lost in wages

the New Tork department of labor to the
14.CO0 physicians, hospitals, and dispen
saries in the state. For th purpose of
preventing such diseases as are directly
due to harmful and avoidable industrial
processes, reports of certain diseases of
occupation ars now required by law to
be filed with the department by physi
cians practicing in the state. ,
It is the Intention of the department to
Inform manufacturers and phynlcians of
preventative and safer Industrial methods

of the medical profession, the necessary

Stances, an indication of the industries in
which they are commonly prepared or
used, the mode in which they enter the
body and the diseases or symptoms to
which they give rise, are then printed
in four parallel columns as a ready guide
to the physician. v r
r Commenting On this new activity, Paul
Kennaday, secretary of the New Tork
association, said: ' '
"As illustration of the easily prevent
able character of some of these diseases
of occupation, the last report of the New
York department of labor calls atten
tion to the death of three men and the
blindness of two others, due to varnishing
with Wood alcohol the interiors of closed,
unventllated beer Vats. . Now, there is
available a practically safe and well
known substitute for .this mixture so ex
tremely dangerous when used in this
manner, and, moreover, that the me
chanical ventilation of closed chambers
during varnishing is necessary is a mat
ter of common knowledge. ,.'
"Similar cases of crass Ignorance, and
what ought to be made criminal negli
gence, could be multiplied indefinitely.
By the thousands every year in this coun
try men, women and children are killed
or put out of their struggle by disease
because they are forced to the -use of
harmful and avoidable methods of man
ufacture,: A atbe of the ingenuity we use.
In cheapening production, if applied to
the problem ef making 'our industries de
cently safe," would save this needless and
cruel sacrifice. '
"With this new reporting law. which
New Tork and seven other states have re
cently adopted, we are, as Dr. Osier once
put It sitting on the edge of the bed and
rubbing our eyes. In a few years, with the
doctors taking hold as they, have now, I
believe we shall see among the profession
and the public this movement for the pre
vention of industrial disease growing even
es the campaign for the prevention of tu
berculosis bas spread throughout, the
country by leaps and bounds, industrial
disease can be practically eliminated from
our industries. We already know enough
to see that clearly. The point at which
we balk seems to be, who is it that IS
coming down sick, and is it worth the
price to keep him on his feet."

BIG CROPS SOLVE PROBLEMS
Double Significance Attaches to Bumper Yields.
V ; New York Financial World.
Surely all those thoughtful persons who
have been disturbed by, the constantly
recurring signs of a deep social unrest
throughout the country wilt realise the
double significance 'which attaches to the
government's figures telling of the golden
streams of wealth now flowing from the
nation's farm a The Department of Ag
riculture's monthly bulletin more than
bears out the most optimistic f oreoasta
made in the various markets. The corn
report shows a probable yield of 2,365,000,000
bushels, a new high record, and 259,000,000
bushels in excess of last year's respectable
orop; the indicated wheat yield, spring
and winter, is 69,000,000 bushels larger
than 1911, and a new high record for
spring wheat; and the oats crop will be
the largest In the country's Wstory, and
587,000,000 bushels in excess Of the 19U
yield. But the bounties of nature go
farther .than these baaio crops and we
will have bumper yields of barley, which
shows a condition of &X compared with
the ton-year average of .1.2; buckwheat
shows 91.1 per cent, compared with the
average of the decade of 814 tr cent,
tha disastrous crop of potato of lasf
year, which compelled the importation of
enormous quantities from abroad. Is suc
ceeded by a generous crop for this year,
the condition of 87.1 comparing with B9.8
last year, while tha reports on the
crops of hay. flax, tobacco, rice apples,
to., ars all uniformly favorabia for an
enormous outturn. We will also have a
14,O0O,oao-bale cotton crop..
These vast yields solve the question of
tha high cost of living, at least for this
year, and that means more than
it might indicate in an off year.
A presidential prise is - being fought
for and the high cost of living agitation
haa been widespread. . But surely the
abundance from -mother earth this year
will guarantee cheap food for cattle,
hogs and sheep and fowl, for the next
year, and send relief to those Who have
been so grievously ' burdened with the
vexing problema of making both ends
meet. Bread Should be cheaper and
clothing and all necessities must come
at concessions to the overburdened peo
ple, while the opportunities for providing
the outside world with the. vast surplus
we ' will have and building up great
credits in the world's markets were never
so glowing as now.. That this la no dream
Is proven by the fact that cereals of all
sorts sold at the lowest prices of the
year on the day the report was pub
lished, while the foreign demand is
Hkety to b' greatly stimulated by the
damage done to continental crops by ex
cessive rains. Our manufacturing cen
ters have taken heart from all these oo
timistlo reports and their chief problem
Is to find enough workers to go around.
Never was there less excuse for a dis
turbance over politics titan this year.

occasion to challenge the Joy of the Ver
