Facetiously, it might be remarked
that in building tho Lincoln Memorial
Highway wo wore- at least catching
up with tho ancient Komans, who,
under Applua Claudius, as early as
312 D. C, built the famous old Ap
plan way. But our civilization has de
pended upon rapid transit, for which
wo have provided with astounding
skill and success our railroad thor
oughfares, constituting the paragon
of tho world. It Is tho spirit and en
terprise of rapid transit that now
provokes the demand for alroadway

In the House of Its Friends.
If republicans had predicted that
tho democratic administration would
play directly into the hands of Wall
street In tho formation of a currency
bill they would havo bean nnathe
matized by all tho oracles of democ
racy, Including Senator Hitchcock's
newspaper. But lo, what has hap
pened? Having exerted himself 'in
opposition to tho bill personally on
tho floor of the sonato, Senator
Hitchcock Is reinforced in his as
saults by his faithful paper at home,
which thus approvingly quotes Frank
A. Vanderllp, president of the City
National bank of Now York tho
Standard Oil concern, as It explains:
The bill will Increase rather than de
crease financial supremacy of New York.
Interest rates will not fluctuate so milch
nd New York wilt become a national
banking center.
Then 8onator Hitchcock's newspa
per adds:
That Is precisely what New York is at
present and that la why so many people
complain. The complaint Is Just. The
icbntrot of the New York reserve bank.
'should the blir bccoms' taw, would' drift
into the hands of the big interests, whlfh
now dominate In New York City, even If
they did not at once get control. '
Thus condomnod in tho houso of
Its "friends," tho Wilsori-Glnss-Bryan,
'currency bill, needs no ono else to
off or a frank exposition of Its de
fects. Tho country certainly does
hot demand legislation that will tend
toward .. further centralization of
financial power in Wall street. But
tho administration boasts that It will
put it through under caucus spur
without material changes.
The Bile of the Auditor,
Time was when your friend, the
operating official, looked askanco at
the auditor, regarding him as little
more) than a necessary nutsancn in
tho management of a modern rail
road. That timo has passed with the
newer dispensation, which makes the
auditor supremo In the dlroction of
most of tho great railways of the
country. His supremacy signifies
the emphasis now placed on the in
vestment side of tho business and in
stead of abating the old policy of "all
the traffic will bear" in tho matter
of rate-making, its very logic Is to
make all traffic profitable.
The new system Is a matter of cou
cern to the general public as well aB
the operating official, chafing under
tbe exacting demands of financial ex
perts, whoso experience in tho trans
portation business usually ends with
their skill In manipulating figures so
as to strike proper balances. The
desire of the now regime Is to reduce
railroading to a more matter of scien
tific auditing, subject to the direc
tion, not of tho man out on the lino
with executive command of operating
and traffic, but the expert with his
eyes glued ou two rolatlvo columns
of figures.
It is not unlikely that orders often
como to practical railroad men from
those with almost no spoclal knowl
edge of transportation. Looking too
much to the stocks and bonds side of
the railroad and not enough to
physical efficiency is what has made
lota of trouble and more than once
upset the balance.
Mrs. Pankhurst gives as her reason
for charging to hear her coming loc
turea fn the United States that she
wishes to raise funds to promote auf
fragettelsm in England. But do
Americano willing to listen desire to
contribute to such lawlessness as her
band has been waging? But Mrs.
Pankhurst will get the money. Amer
icana will pay to see almost anybody
and anything properly advertised.

Wolf Hopper has the best claim to

New York World: Massachusetts now

his party platform and a governor who
bids for allegiance from three parties.
And politics is not much more mixed in
Massachusetts than elsewhere, olther.
Baltimore American: The new tariff

to (0 per cent ad valorem. Now, Just
what does this mean? Is it an endeavor
to encourage a home industry, or is It a

Aliont the Ak-Snr-Oen Ball,
OMAHA, Oct 9.-To the Editor of The
Bee: Thla dlsousslon about the alleged
disgraceful scenes at the Ak-Sar-Ben
ball Is doubtless mighty good reading for
those who were not there, but as one
who was there, and who stayed until 1
o'clock, I want to bear testimony that I
did not see anything on the dancing
floor that arty reasonable person could
take exception to. People must remem
ber that this Is a public ball, with guests
present from many out-of-town places,
and that every one does not go through
the same dances in the same way. There
certainly was no more hugging or high
stepping than I havft f rn film i:t avaii
social night at the different country
"""" summer, if the Ak-Sar-Ben
governors, or any one representing them,
had ventured to call any of the dancers
off the floor, there would have been an
uproar of protest and denunciation of it
as unjustifiable interference.
Where I think the ball management Is
really open to criticism is In' the arrange
ment Of the hall, reserving oil iu k
space for boxes, allotod to themselves.

Political Straws
The discovery that a check for $,700
had been lying around loose for weeks
In the Philadelphia city hall shocked
the regular chair warmers and almost
Jarred William Penn off his perch.
"Washington reports to various papers
affirm that President Wilson will soon
lift S.000 offices In the Postofflce depart
ment from the reach of spoils hunters
and clap them under the protecting wings
of civil service.
Roger C. Sullivan, one of tho demo
cratic bosses of Illinois, Is looking Into
the senatorial fight tn Illinois. Among
other qualifications for the Job attributed
to Roger is his versatility as a corre
spondent ot W. J. Bryan.
The pathos of belated regret clings to
these words attributed to Governor Sul
zer: "I sometimes wish that I had
taken my wife's advice and remained In
congress two more years, finished out
my term of twenty years and retired to
private life. Then thero would have been
none of this worry."
The New York Evening Post notes a
curious phase of public sentiment spring
ing from tiie impeachment trial, "It is
not that the people love Bulzer more,"
says the Post, "but that they despise
Murphy with heightened intensity. Every
new fact brought out to the hurt ot
tiie governor's reputation merely inflames
tho anger against the Tammany boss.
This is now the most significant factor
ln the city election. Sulzer may well be
destroyed politically. It Is hard to see
how he can have any future; but It
looks as it he might drag down Murphy
with him."
