"The greatest problem of this country
today is not the tariff, not the trusts,"
said Louis D. Brandeis of Boston at the
Commercial . club luncheon, "but the
greatest problem that is besetting us to
day is the problem of the waning respect
for the law. This is what led to the
Los Angeles dynamiting and similar
events. The rich man has what he wants,
and the poor man comes to feel that be
must resort to some method other than
the law to get what he feels Is his due."
Inslntf leant Results. ,
Mr. Brandeis had been speaking of the
Insignificant results that had been ob
tained in the prosecution of the trusts.
"After five or six years of Investigation
and litigation," said Mr. Brandeis, "the
courts have shown ' th Standard Oil
trust and this Tobacco trust to be illegal.
Then what happened. The very utmost
that the courts said was, 'Don't do it
again.' Twenty years of wrongdoing and

"Nothing would be more dangerous than

"I object to the proposal of the pro

BoBton lawyer, when he arrived In Omaha
Friday morning, "I object to . that pro
posal because I believe we as a people
rose to greatness through the people do

rived shortly after 10 o'clock in the morn

club at a noon luncheon. In his room
before noon he discussed politics to some
extent He is enthusiastic for the elec
tion of Wilson and, of course, finds more
material favorable to Wilson's election
than for any other candidate. He said
that the country was ready for some
legislation in that the people for the last
ten years had been studying social and

James. Cardinal Farley, and party of
prelates departed for Denver yesterday
afternoon at 1:25 after the most pleas
ing, stop they have made since leaving
New Tork for the Pacific coast.
The cardinal who loves the fresh, morn
ing air, was out bright and early to ab
sorb the invigorating w astern sunshine,
and he set a pace that w possibly a
bit strenuous for others of the party.
After a refreshing night of sleep he in
dicated that he wanted to see Omaha,
having heard so much about it Auto
mobiles were secured and a round of
the city was made.
He started off the day by saying mass
at the Academy of Sacred Heart, which
is near the residence of Bishop Scannell.
whose guest he was during the night
After the service he laid away his robes,
partook of a hearty breakfast, and ex
pressed impatience to be about and bust
ling. Taken for Drive.
Together with Bishop ticannell, members
of the cardinal's party and some of the
Omaha parish priests, the distinguished
divine was taken for a drive about the
city and the points of interest were indl
cated to them, especially St Cecilia's
cathedral, the magnificent "tructurs
which is now in course of construction.
The cardinal was especially anxious to
visit Crelghton university, and he was
astonished at the magnitude of the in
stitution and the thoroughness of Its man
agement. At the university he met most
of the instructors, for all of whom he
had a cheerful word of encouragement
Thursday night the cardinal was the cen
tral figure at a quiet dinner at the resi
dence of Bishop Scannell. The only per
sons present were the visiting divines,

Mr. Brandeis said the country was ripe
