The High Cost of Campaigning.
When It was disclosed by congressional In
vestigation that Senator Isaac Stephenson of
Wisconsin had paid out more than a hundred
thousand dollars for what he thought to bo tho
legitimate expenses of the campaign to elect
him to the United States senate people were
startled at the Blze of the figures. The natural
inference wus that under such conditions none
but millionaires, or proteges of millionaire;,
could hope to sit In that august body of law
makers. Slnco then wo have adopted a consti
tutional amendment providing for the election
of United States senators by direct vote of the
people, and wo have placed candidates for this
office on the same footing as other candidates
required to make public statements of their
campaign expenditures. Tho first returns from
a really contested senatorial primary are those
from South Dakota, which Indicate that tho pre
liminary skirmish cost tho winner, in round
figures, nbout $3,000, and the loser about
$2, 000. The successful nominee has the regu
lar election yet ahead of htm, which, It is a fair
presumption, will bring his total outlay up to
not less than $5,000, a very modest sura In that
cocnectlon, as no doubt overyono will agree.
Rut if It takes JG.OOO for a not extravagant
campaign for Unltod States senator In South
Dakota, what Is the significance elsowhorc? In
tho last presidential election South Dakota(cast
a total voto of 115,925, less than half the vote
of Nebraska. On tho same ratio to the voto a
senatorial campaign in Nebraska would cost
$12,000. In tho same election Iowa's total
voto wuh 492,326, or four and one-half times
that of South Dakota; Illinois, 1,146,103, or
nearly ten times that of South Dakota; and
New York's 1,587,983, or nearly fourteen times
that of South Dakota. The candidate for son
ator compelled to go through a primary fight,
and then a regular election campaign, would,
therefore, at proportionate cost have to spend
not less than $22,000 in Iowa, $50,000 In Illi
nois and $70,000 In Now York. The mero
mention of theso figures proves the Impossibil
ity of anyono representing these states in the
senato at a salary of $7,500 a year, and getting
back tho cost of making the race if he foots his
own bills out of his own pocket, or, if ho does
not, of being a senator free and unhampered by
strings hold by thoso who have financed his
Tho problem presonted Is not only serious,
but bound to become moro soriouB unless tho
solution Is soon found. It Is easy to limit tho
campaign outlay by law, but plainly the limit
must bo .hlghor for Nebraska than for South
Dakota, and higher for Now York than for Ne
braska, and In proportion would become almost
prohibitive In the big population states. One
or two states make a subvention out of tho
public treasury to tho different political parties
for campaign expenses, but no one has yet pro-
l pesed to rolmburee candidates for primary nom
inatlon in this way. Direct popular government
(Upends npon the frco choice of official agon
clef by the people, and to Insurd this freedom
of choice nomo practical plan must bo devised
to provent the high cost, making wealth alono
tho stepping stone to high office.
There Is still time to launch a few more In
itiative and rofrendum measures for Nebraska
voters to' pass on in the coming Norombor elec-

After he votes for free tolls in direct repu
diation of tho Baltimore platform, Senator
Hitchcock will havo to keep still about Mr,
Bryan violating Instructions In the convention.
According to Edgar Howard, tho falthul In
Nebraska will havo to chooso botweon Wilson
and Bryan on one sldo and Hitchcock and Wall
street on tho other. Wall street was never very
popular out on theso prairies.
Politics Is barred from discussions at school
house moetlngs. But who is to docldo what
constitutes politics? And how In this land of
free speech aro discussions to be controlled
after they are onco under way?
How many of thoso who wont to church un
der tho Impulso came out saying, "1 was glad
when they said unto mo, let us go Into tho houso
of the Lord?" In tho answer to that question
rests a good doal of significance.
Speaker Clark says it takes more sense to
mako a good congressman than to mako a good
president. Oh, wo aro not so suro about that
not after looking back over tho list of con
gressmen who have represented this district!
One surely has to go away irom homo to got
the news. Tho assuranco of a Kansas City
newspaper that Omaha has been completely
cleaned up from a moral standpoint, leaving
nothing more for us to do, would be decidedly
satisfying If we cpuld only persuade ourselves
of its truth.
Aro We Still Feeding the World?
It appears from figures recently Issued by
tho Department of Commerce that, while in
1SS3 agricultural products formed 84,3 per cent
of our total exports, In 1913 tboy formed only
46.1 per cont; In 1880 manufactures, exclusive
of foodstuffs, made up 14.78 per cent of our ex
ports, and In 1913 48. S per cent.
Wo used to call our country tho broad basket
of tho world, but aro wo foedtng tho universe
qulto as much as formerly? Very steady and
constant has beon our transformation as ox
porters in the last thirty years from raw ma
terials to manufactured products. The answer
Is ono with which wo aro familiar our produc
tion of food Is not keeping paco with our con
sumption and wo havo a smaller comparative
surplus to supply other countries. Of course,
In this period we have made tremendous strides
in manufacturing, but that Is not tho answer
to this question. Wo might havo made even
greater Industrial progress had we kept up with
our soil production ns wo should and could.
Prom no point of Inquiry can we approach
this problem without discovering tho stern fact
that our population and homo consumption
growths are gaining on our food production.-

Land Values and Location.
After studying conditions In Nobraska. Iowa

dustrial ngent for tho Northern Pacific railroad
at Seattle urges tho commerclol Interests of the
Pacific northwest to unite In discouraging ex
cessive land values as nn inducement to tho
purchaso of land for home-bulldlng purposes
by immigrants. He says much of tho land
thoro is too high-priced, and wo can readily ap
predate it. That is Inevitable where there is
so much land booming; whore promoters go In
more for quick turns than for building up tho
No land value comparison between such
states as Washington and Nebraska is complete
which does not t'ako Into consideration tho
quality of the land, togother with location ab
respects market, transportation facilities, cll
mato and other essentials to successful farming,
Whllo Bome middle western states havo reaped
111 results from excesslvo land valuation, Ne
braska has not; the teudenoy here has boon
rather to hold down tho Belling prices or lauu.
In tills and tho other particulars mentioned wo
offer, therefore, superlative attractions to thoso
seeking homes on the land.
Tho Northern Paclflo's agent makes a point
which we desire to commend to our own people.
Ho suggests the Idea of "engrafting tho personal
equation" Into the actlvo Immigration opera
tions. "I rogard contact with the proposed set
tler as the ono very lmportaut thing to whlcn
tho northwest must resort next," says he. Of
the 1.190,000 Immigrants who came to the
United States last year, only 6,000 settled in
Nebraska, while 32,000, for Instance, went to
California, It goes without saying that if, the
superior advantages of Nobraska were properly
placed before these people, more of them would
settlo here, for as newcomers and strangers
they have no prejudice or preconceptions to
which practical reason cannot appeal. The
sooner wo address ourselves seriously to this
task, the better for tbo state's development.
A Clnsslr.nl Administration.
WAIIOO, Neb., March .-To tho Kdllor
of The Bee: If .a classlcat administra
tion means that wo are to be governed
by narrow technicalities it would have
been better if we had chosen our
statesmen from among section men and
farm hands who would not forfeit com
mon sense for technical allusions. In
the HayPauncefote treaty the United
Slates was treating with Great Britain
and with other nations; It was not treat
ing with Itself, within Itself; It did not
Include Itself. Th arrangement of the
argument on tha term "all nations" Is
on a par with the story of o young man
who wrote 21 on a piece of paper and
placed It In his boot and told the Judges
of tho election that ' ho was over ?1."
The atrangement did not make him a
legal voter. It was un artificial truth.
If wo are to rest on technicalities and
arrange the word "discrimination" It
may be construed that England discrimi
nates against all other nations by ship
ping goods in maritime vessels and there
fore should pay an extra toll. If we give
up our home Interests to please a distant
nation we will surrender regulation of
our government to a foreign power.
KIMBALLTOK, la., March Z.-Td the
Editor of The Beo: The railroads of the
United States aro not yet owned by tho
government of the United States, neither
are the ships that belong to corporations
nnd citizens of the United States, there
fore they should pay toll,
But, suppose tho government owned
some or all the Tallroads here would It
be good policy to make Interstate traffic
free and give everybody a free ride when
ever they wanted It: and then take run
ning expenses out of government funds?
And, now, even If the government don't
need or don't care to have tne Income of
the Panama canal, would thn people of
the middle states not he Interested If
such Income was Used to Improve naviga
tion on the Mississippi river?
Further, suppose we find stock In the
Suez Canal company In the same vaults
that contain stock in European steamship
lines, would It not tend to make such
lines favor the Suez canal as much as
possible? And It Is also In their Interest
to havo the Panama canal appear of.
fonslve to the rest of the world so much
more business for the Sues canal.
That Is the position we are In with
our coast-wlse-trado free of tolls. Abroad
It will appear unfair and unjust and the
European trade will and can to a great
extent stay out. In this way wc prac
tically hand over the Panama canal to
our steamship lines. There will bo very
few small boats owned by individuals to
make use of the Panama canal. If the
government should build a railroad, and
then give the use of It td some operating
compaay it would only be tho same thing.

PITTSBUBOII, Pa., March K.-To the
Editor of The Bee:. By the use of sleight
of hand methods, at which It Is adept,
the Anti-Saloon league has procured the
publlcatldn ' generally throughout the
country of an alleged news item calcu
lated to create the Impression that the
representative business men's organisa
tion of Pittsburgh has adopted a resolu
tion favoring national prohibition.
Tho germ of truth In the publication Is
that a -minor organization, called the
Pittsburgh Board of Trade, with about
$4,000 incomo per year, has adopted such
a resolution, but It represents only u
portion of the east end.
There aro about twenty little boards of
trade In Pittsburgh, and tho action of
any one of these boards Is not significant.
The representative business men's organ
ization of Pittsburgh Is the Chamber of
Commerce, which has between 1,100 and
1,200 members and an Income of about
$40,000 per year, and this organization
certainly has not adopted a resolution In
favor of national prohibition, but on the
contrary February 19, by an over
whelming vote, laid on the table resolu
tions favoring national prohibition, and
on March 12, 1914, took them from tho
table and by a large majority killed the
resolutions by postponing action until
As a business man and as a member
nnd director of the Chamber of Commerce
of Pittsburgh I hope you will be willing
to present this statement of fact and
thereby help to keep tho record straight,
A. M. HANAUB,
Edgar Howard In Columbus Telegram.
There la no use trying to disguise the situation.
There Is an element In the democratic ranks In No- '
bra ska which Is not In harmony with the Wilson ad
ministration. The leader of the anti-Wilson clement
Is .Senator Hitchcock. It was the Hitchcock decree
which sent forth those un-American charges against
President Wilson during the presidential primary
campaign. It wa tho same Hitchcock who consorted
with the agents of Wall street In the Baltimore con
vention In an effort to tie the democratic party in the
Walt street stall. It was this same HttoncocU who
played the game for the sugar tariff thieves In an
effort to defeat the Wilson tariff measure In, con
gress. It was this same Hitchcock whd acted as
spokesman for Standard Oil and other Interests of
the criminal rich when the Wilson currency program
was before congress.
But what has all this to do with the nomination of
a democratic state ticket In Nebraska? Very much
to do. with It. This samo Senator Hitchcock and the
Interests behind him have a mad ambition to em
barrass President Wilson. It would bo embarrassing
to tho president if the democrats of Nebraska should
nomlnato a ticket composed of the enemies of the ad
ministration. Such a deal. In tho home state of Mr.
Bryan, the premier df tha Wilson administration,
would be notice to tho world that Nebraska democrats
had repudiated the Wilson administration. The Tele
gram Is r.ware that the Hitchcock spokesmen In this
state proclaim their loyalty to President Wilson,
while ne"er losing an opportunity to fling a harpoon
at Secretary Bryan. They forget that In very recent
days PreA'dent Wilson publicly expressed unfaltering
faith In this same Bryan, and without limit extolled
the private and public worth of the great secretary
of state. No honest man may study tho record of the
treatment accorded to President Wilson and his ad
ministration by the Hitchcock crowd In Nebraska
without reaching the conclusion that the alleged
friendship of the Hitchcock, following for President
Wilson, personally, and for his plans and purposes.
Is tho friendship of tho frog for the fly.
It is tlnu for plain talk In Nebraska. It Is time
for the friends of President Wilson and his adminis
tration to get awake to the situation. A victory for
the Hitchcock reactionaries in the Nebraska demo
cratic primary would be heralded to all the world as
a direct slap In the face of President Wilson and Sec
tary Bryan. The selection of candidates known to be
friendly to President Wilson and Secretary Bryan
would be evldcnco to all the world that the democracy
of Nebraska still has faith In our splendid president
and still approves the policies of his administration.
And so It aoems to the Telegram that this present
hour Is none too early to plan for a battle which
cannot be avoided, and which should not be avoided.
All this talk about cementing the democrats of Ne
braska under one leadership Is very pretty talk: to
partisan ears, but It Is Idle talk, unless all shall agree
that the supreme leader shall be President Wilson.
And If all Nebraska democrats are to rally under the
banner of President Wilson, as they ought to do, then
whom shall we recognize as tho lawful bearers of tha
Wilson banner In this state? Certainly not Senator
Hitchcock, for. Indeed, his chief practice has been to
spit upon, rather than to applaud, every program at
tempted by President Wilson for the promotion of
anything which bore even the suspicion of A progres
sive democratic principle. No battle worth while was
ever wort by any army which did not trust Its leader
ship The vast majority of Nebraska democrats sua
pect the sincerity of Senator Htlchcock, and they
have proof of his devotion to the cause of the crim
inal rich, and proof of his hatred of every progressive
plan ever proposed by President Wilson. These two
facts dictate to real democrat In NobrasKa tne im
peratlve duty of nominating a staU ticket which will
be recognized, from top to bottom, as carrying the
names of democrats devoted to the cause of Presidont
Wilson and opposed to the cause of Wall street, as
represented In the United States senate by Mr. Hitch
In the very nature of things the campaign In Ne
braska this year will lie distinctly along tho line of
national Issues. Btato Issues will be thrust so far in
the background that neither orators nor editors will
be able to Induce the voters to listen to their pre
sentation. Tho Telegram welcomes a campaign on
national Issues. Wo believe President Wilson and his
administration will receive an overwhelming vote of
approval In Nebraska. It the Issue can be made per
fectly clear, as It will be, 10,000 republicans in Ne
braska will vote for a democratic state ticket which
Is' positively known to be composed of nominees who
are loyal to President TVllson and his administration.
Thero Is so much patriotism In the hearts of the
honest element In the republican party In Nebraska
that that element would consider It a first duty to
cast a vote to approve and encourage President Wil
son. Bpeaklng from the standpoint of a supporter of
President Wilson and his administration, and In the
hope that the Issue In Nebraska may not be befoggod,
Tho Telegram respectfully asks the t;e-.nocrats of the
state to take their proper place In the primary fight
and let It be a fight to a finish. Those who applaud
the Wall street activity of Senator Hitchcock and his
persistent efforts to embarrass President Wilson and
his administration, should stand under the llltchcocl;
banner, and fight for the nomination of democratic
stato candidates who are In sympathy with the Hitch
cock opposition to President Wilson and his plans
and purposes. Those who applaud the courageous
course of President Wilson and Secretary Bryan
should stand beneath the WUson and Bryan banner,
and fight for the nomination of a set of democratic
state candidates who are known to be In full sym
athy with the achievements of the Wilson administra
tion, and with Its plans and purposes for the, future.
