Nebraska's Panorama of Resouroci.
Statistics compiled by the buroau
of labor, showing tho farm products
shipped from various Nebraska sta
tions, form a splendid panorama of
our wealth and resources. It Is In
teresting to pause and study these
figures. Thoy may reveal many sur
prises even to those fairly well In
formed tUi to tho resources of their
own otate. It Is probably not sur
prising to anyone to know that in
one year 36,500,000 bushols of corn
were shipped from different towns
and 64,800,000 bushols ot wheat
and 12,600,000 head of cattle and
3,096,000 head of hogs, for these aro
but small portions of our production
of corn, wheat, cattla and hogs. But
how about shipping moro than 212,-
000,000 pounds of flour and
nearly 172,000,000 pounds of
mill feed? ' Had you thought,
of our mllMng industry In such

Omaha a Natural Traffio Center.
If the Interstate Commerce com
mission establishes a subdivision of
its work, stationing a number of its
employes in tho central west, partic
ularly for tho physical valuation ot
railroads, It should by all means lo
cate In Omaha.
With a dozen trunk lines converg
ing here, the official division head
quarters of Bovcral railways, tho
official homo and terminus of a great
transcontinental lino. Omaha is a
natural traffic center. It hoa a claim
to offer In thlB respect of lncompara-
bto and It would seem, irresistible,
force. Jn addition to Its railroad
pro-omlnenco, It is tho center and
metropolis of a vast dominion of ag-
rlcultufrU and industrial weiilth.
As a business proposition' the
only standpoint from -which the com
mission should act considering
proximity, convenience and facility
for work, Omaha's position Is most
strategic. Our delegation In con
gress can afford to get behind this
proposition With nothing short of Its
full power, and our business inter
ests at homo, through organised or
other agency, should also boost, if
boosting Is required.
Example in Arbitration.
It Is exceedingly gratifying,
though not surprising, that thoso
80,000 trainmen on fifty oastorn
railroads found a way ot settling
their difficulties -without striking.
While 90 per cent of them had voted
as a Hast resort to strike, such an is
suo sever really aoerocd imminent In
view ot thB well Known conserva
tism ot tho trainmen, and tbo mutual
regard of both sides for tho larger
Interests and welfare ot tho country,
which would have suffered unendur
ably in tho event of a tleup.
Tho settlement, which was reached
through the operation of the
amended Krdman or Newianda act,
vindicates Its efficacy, showing the
advantage ot arbitration over a strike
and what may be dona when both
sides aro ready to consider mutual
Interests and put abovo selfish de
mands those of the general welfare
The result is cause for national con
gratulation and should carry with it
a great weight and moral influonco
for tbo future.
Ambassador Henry Lane Wilson,.
Regardless of personal bios or
prejudice, no ono can gainsay that
our ambassador to Mexico, Henry
Lane Wilson, has occupied that post
during a period more critical than
any other diplomatic representative
who ever served this government In
that position. For the nearly three
years that tho revolution has -lasted
ho has been on the firing lino every
minute of the time, and whether he
made mistakes or not, be has suc
ceeded bo far In maintaining peace
ful relations between the United
States and Mexico without sacrificing
our standing as a nation among na
tlons. Possibly, his period of use
tulnesfl as our ambassador has
reached its end bis resignation has
been In the hands ot President Wtl
eon from the first day ot his admin
istration, and he has continued only
by tho president's wish but It ho is
supplanted at this crucial atago It
will not bo because someone eiso
would havo done better in his place.

Some ot thepi are here given. Possibly

Past troubles in the relation of citizens
and public service corporations have been
due, In my opinion, to a failure to recog
nlze and adhere to basle principles,
It has taken our country long to realise
that there la a distinct difference be
tween the rights ot buyer and caller In
the ordinary transactions of business and
those existing whan that service, called
publlo service, la to be purchased.
It la now quite generally recognized
that this furnishing of utilities for all
the people Is, and should be, a monopoly,
Protection to the buyer In other trans
actions exist. In competition. Competi

service,, there remain, only the power of
control over rates and duality, now vested

This power granted by a sovereign

decidedly not a something to ba bartered

Now, this I. somewhat academic, but

Our mayor has been shouting for dollar

In a laudable and straightforward ef.
fort to secure this price the city council
encountered a contract entered Into by
the city twenty years ago and found that
Its hands were tied. Jt seems vl!Hng
now, It dollar gas can be secured, to tie
the hands of thoso who, twenty year,
from now. will be charged with the duty
of protecting the people In their ,necca
sary purchase of gas.
It la claimed that tho proposed ordl

OMAHA. July J8.-To the Editor ot The
Bee: Man passes the happiest hours ot
his life asleep. The stoics held the opin
ion that happiness la nothing more than
the absence of pain and misery, and this
is the theory that nature seems to favor,
and she doe. her part In making us
happy by periodically reducing our mlnda
to Insensibility, During our waking
hours our minds are overflowing' wltn
exaggerated opinions of our own Im
portance, mistaken notions ot the valiu
of wealth and power, with regret for the
past and with uneasy curiosity and friv
olous speculations concerning the future,
During- the day wo rejoice at our mo
mentary triumphs, laugh at the appar
ent defeat of our enemies and expo bo
pur own ignorance and stupidity by
ridiculing the folly of others; but by
midnight sleep has .tripped every woman
of her vanities and every man of hi.
foolish fears; by S o'clock the woman
of the scarlet robe ha. made her escape
from the dens of lust; sin and shame are
forgotten', and sleep restores the balance
between pleasure and pain and. give, her '
what the world denies forgetfulncs..
But natural sleep is not always sufficient
to deliver u. from the Insupportable I
miseries of life; it Is powerless In thou
aands of cases to restore the equilibrium I
and fortify us agalnat the Ills of another ,
day, and In order to further escape the
consciousness of our own trolllty and the
general depravity of mankind we seek
