What Are They Afraid Of!
To a disinterested spectator, It Is hard to
understand why the principals In the great do

should fight so hard to keep from coming back
and telling their story.

nicalities, extradition, habeas corpus and bond

Judge Gary on Employes.
Some of us aro planning to do everything we can
to secure orders, sometimes without regard to our
obligations to our employes. It Is a necessity to be
fair, reasonable and generous to our employes and
toward one another. I don't have to tell you to he
generous toward your customers, for they are taking
care of themselves; but It Is necessary and our duty
to be considerate of each other.
Those words aro from not one of our emi
nent altruistic reformers, but the- official head
of the United States Steel corporation, tho
mightiest of all corporations. They wero spoken
Ly Judgo E. H. Gary to the American Iron and
Steel Institute, of which he Is also president.
We havo no reason for discounting them or tho
meaning or motive back of them. It Is far
more pleasant and profitable to take them at
their face valuo, for thus do they reflect a ten
dency of the times that augurs well for tho
future of Industrialism.
What a great thing It will be economically,
to say nothing of morally, when both employe
and employer can really see and acknowledge
tho great prlnclplo of mutual solf-intoreBt. The
strike, which Is really an anachronism today,
will have no place In tho abltrarrient of Indus
trial disputes when wo do reach such a rec
ognition. That wo havo not come to It beforo
now, with all the othor great progress made in
every direction, is one of tho irrcconcilablo
anomalies of the times. The blamo, o'f course,
divides between the two elements. But It Is
BorlouBly a source of gratification when mon In
the position of Judge Gary lay down such prop
ositions as this.

The death of William O. Bradley removes a

She has no difficulty commanding homage,
this unobtrusive little sovereign, not in those
days of high prices when eggs form a luxury as

yard"arrd you will find that no effort or expense
is spared in providing comfortablo and con
venient quarters for the queon. Tho Intelligent
poultryman has exhausted his ingenuity on

Boston Transcript: By turning stale's evidence, aa
he appearn to have done, Mr. Mellen may have se
cured Immunity from further prosecution. The shock,
lng story of corruption, however, with which his
confession begins, goes far toward confirming the
charges and justifying the condemnation of hla rail
way record lij New England that finally drove him
Into retirement. If he shall have secured immunity
he haa paid a. high price for It. Already his revela

he carried Into private life, and he has silenced by

New York Herald: What waa In the minds of Mr.
Morgan and Mr. Itockcfeller and their associates when
they forced the New Haven Into this policy and
guided It to plunder and disaster? They did not need
money; for they each of them were many million
aires In one. They did not need power; for they had
power, and Inexhaustible means of acquiring further
power. What Is more to the point, the vast power
that they wielded was due largely to their reputation
for financial Integrity, prudence and sagacity the
very antitheses of the qualities that they displayed
In their New Haven transactions.

Brooklyn Eagle: Out of these revelations ft man
agement of the New Haven will be evolved which will
not require devious banking methods and reports
which tell nothing a system which "anybody can
hear" without bringing on disaster. In that trans
formation It Is inevitable that the reputation of Mr.
Morgan shall suffer. The present Intention seems
to bo that none of his living associates shall Buffer
also, but that Intention may easily be overruled by
facts. It Is not easy to control a spring freshet, and
the revelations of mischief in the New Haven aro
swelling like a mountain stream under April rains.

Hostility to nunlnrss.
Chicago Record-Herald: Hostility to legitimate bus
iness must stop. But It must stop whereVer it exists
and haa existed. It must stop In legislatures and
political conventions, but It must also stoj In the
circles of what Is called high or frenzied finance.
Hostility to business of the kind Illustrated by the
New Haven, Rock Island, Frisco and similar opera
tions; hostility to business exemplified, by predatory
and greedy trusts condemned under tho rule of ren
non; hostility to business exemplified by rebates ard
other discriminations condemned by law and public
sentiment, hostility to business exemplified by in
dustrial bourbons who oppose all proper regulation
all such manifestations of hostility to business must
stop, or legislative and political hostility to business
will never stop,
Legltlmato business should purge itself and banish
tho gamblers and tricksters, the get-rich-quick man
ipulators. Abuses in business by inner cliques have
done frnoro to create hostility than all tho speeches
of superficial and wild demagogues.
Springfield (Mass.) Republican: The directorate
system of railroad control and management Is made
to look llko a mockery by such revelations of one
man power. The only master Mr. Mellen recognized
waa Mr. Morgan. It was Mr. Morgan who had of
fered hlm-by telephone the Northern Pacific presi
dency. It was Mr. Morgan who had offered him
again by telephone the New Haven presidency. Mr.
Mellen had been content even to ask no questions
about his salary: for Mr. Morgan would attend . to
thk.t. In the Westchester deal Mr. Mellen was snub

Morgan for more details about the expenditure of
over 111,000,00) of the New Haven's money; yet Mr.
Mellen was president of. the road, The other direc

HYANNIS. Neb., May 25. To the Edi
tor of The Bee: The people of this country
have urged me to write an explanation
of their attitude toward the state In try
ing to move the school sections of this
district. We feel that the motlveo be
hind the state's case are dishonorable.
According to reports spread broadcast
by some of our state officers. Grant
county Is a thief. It seems -these officers
want to convince the people that Orant
county is trying to steal th-i ctate's
school land. But the legal department
of this state does not attempt to explain
why Orant county wants to play the part
of a thief.
In 1876-7 this county was supposed to
have been surveyed. It scorns that but
one township was ever stakod and It only
partly so. Settlers who came about
eight to ten years later were un
able to find any cornsrs except In this
cne particular townsh'p. Each settler
was compelled to hire a local survyor
to find out where he wo-ild homestead.
These surveyors, among them the civil
engineers for the Burlington, found the
county over a quarter of h mllo wider
than the width given by the Held notes
of the alleged survey of 1876-7. When
surveyors came In from different i-lden
of tho county thy would uive their
clients different numbirs for th sami
piece of land. Immeilitcly there un le
conflicts and dlsputas.
Congress passed a npe :lal rcsurvey
act and Instructed Iho leortnicnt to
gtvo tho settlers th?lr land tccord'ns to
the corners not by the local surveyors.
The United States dep i'.y surveyor found
the county contained a quarter of a mile
in excess, and was unable to find any
corners outside of tns .me township, to
the alleged old survey, 'n fact, the field
notes were so grossly lnco.-eM that ho
waa told to regard the trmn'y a virK'n
territory. This he did, claim lining the
settlers where they suppased they had
taken their land. As same of the iet
tlers had their lands surveyed out fom
the north side of the coiuty. their plana

But at this time land was worth less
than- a dollar per acre and the state of
ficers overlooked the matter. Since one
of the. segregations has passed and since
the federal government has discovered
better methods of surveying, the state
legal department is seeking to upset tile
survey of the whole country, because
they forgot to select a few acres of seg
The state legal department Infers that
the United States deputy surveyor claim
lined all the good land for tho settlers.
The deputy surveyed 16 and S3 Just ex
actly whero they came. These school
lands .contain 610 acres and average Just
as good land as sections 1 and 2, or any
other two sections out of each township.
But It seems that it Is not a question of
land, but of trying to upset tho Alt sur
vey, because It did not place the corners
according to the alleged old survey. It
also seems that for political reasons the
legal department would rather change tho
homesteads of the citizens than go to tho
trouble to select land in lieu of the few
acres the state Is short.
Now the people of Grant county are not
thieves, nor do they want to profit by the
state. But the land owners here are
