Gazetto cites tho fact that wo havo time and
again called In experts on questions of largo
moment to tho country only to Ignoro their find
ings, as for oxamplo, tho special commission on
railway's securities, tho Joint congressional
committee to adjust railway mall pay, the
monetary commission to formulato a banking
law, nnd tho selection by tho president of ex
perts to direct tho now rcscrvo bank. "In this
country," wo aro toJd, "tho fact that a man Is a
recognized expert on any subjoct is sufficient
to mako tho typical politician and bureaucrat
regard him with suspicion, and accept with re
lnctanco or entirely reject his vlows." Not con
tent with this mild rcforenco It continues:
Tho United States Is tho worst governed civilized
country on earth. Its clt. state nnd national legis
lature! and administrations aro wasteful. Inefficient
and otlm corrupt. Tho chef cause of tho wasto and
Inofflclency Is tho habitual Ignoring of the expert by
the polltlcan nnd bureaucrat.
Whether or not tho oxport holds tno Kep
to' tho situation, this Is indeed a sovoro lndict
mont that challenges attention. Whon every
business Is being systematized to moot require
ments of economy nnd offlclency, tho continual
neglect or- Indlfferenco to tho business of gov
ernment by those who have most at stake and
foot tho bulk of tho bills cannot holp but lead
to wasto, extravagance and Inefficiency.
Wrong, Brother Sutherland.
We have had tho pleasure of an Intimate
acquaintance with Mr. Howell alnco 1898, when he
was serving an engineer on the Stato Board of Irri
gation; later he resigned that position to accept the
office ot clly. engineer of Omaha. Teknmah Herald.
No, Brother Sutherland, you aro mistaken
for ho did nothing of tho kind. Ho did not re
sign from tho state payroll to take a placo on
the Omaha city payroll. On tho contrary, ho
accepted tho city salary, and hold on to tho stato
salary, too, rollngulshlng tho latter only whon
ho could no longer got away with both. For
approximately three months ho drew a double
stlppnd.ono (frpm ther treasury of tho state, and
tho other" from the treasury of tho city, cheat
ing one, or both, of -'his omployors. Brother
Howell, wo Imagine will not thank you for re
calling this characteristic lncldont, which ho
thought had been forgotton.

Carrying It Altogether Too Far.
For Nobraska, and regardloss of partisan
ship, The Beo enters firm protest against tho
palablo Injustice sought to bo porpetratod by
tho World's Work In excluding our most dis
tinguished fellow citizen from first magnitude
rank as a statesmon. "The two most Interest
ing subjects In politics are Mr. Wilson and Mr.
RoosovoR," declares the World's Work. It re
fers to thorn as "tho two strongest characters
In political llfo," and again says that asldo from
these two dominant figures the political world
Is unusually devoid ot strong personality." To
bo sure, It mentions Mr. Bryan In passing, but
It mentions Mr. Underwood and Senator Borah
ahead of him, and sidetracks him merely as a
subordinate In the Wilson administration. Fin
ally, as If to make a bad matter worse, It con
eludes that "excepting Mr. Wilson and Mr.
Roosevelt, our politics is not now filled with
many commanding figures."
So wo reiterate our protest that this Is
carrying It altogether too far, for so long as
Mr. Bryan romalns a factor In our politics thero
can be no two "dominant" or "commanding"
figures unless ho Is ono of them. Tho only con

Tho barons of business, those Imperial po

that tho season shall begin with a short coat and
end with a long ono. If It woro the other way
around, of course, many women could savo tho
prlco of a coat and yet meet the exacting de

coat, wear' It until time to put on the short ono

Dick Croker must bo getting ambitious In

clean out Tammany and depose Murphy. In

ot the present sachem and all his satraps.
If anyone can do this work, surely it Is
Croker, for he ought to know Tammany from A

ruled one and trained tho other. But that Is
about as far as the Amorlcan people would care

Tho arrival from Australia of the steamship Nor
folk, a vessel of 5.631 gross tonnage, having Its five
holds Insulated for the conveyance of refrigerated
meat, emphasizes the fact that the movement lmthe
Importation of foreign meat has com to continue.
The Norfolk brought up from tho Antipodes between
3,000 and 4,000 tons of froien beef, mutton and lamb,
and after discharging a portion at Boston camo Into
port In New York City. This week Its master. Cap
tain Hughes, will be discharging the meat, which
makes up about half tho srlp's cargo, nt Nprton, Lilly
& Co's. South Brooklyn pier, and will be ready for
roturnlng direct to New Zealand and Australia. The
meat has made a much much needed return cargo
for vessels trading between New York and Austral
sla. The first ventures made since the reduction In
tho tariff on meat under the new law of last year
havo 'been found sufficiently encouraging by the
steamship owjiern nnd agents to put the service be
yond the experimental stage, and monthly sailings
are now scheduler right along, with a possibility that
some seventeen ships of this special class of meat
carriers well accustomed to the meat carrying
trade from Australia to GTeat Britain will be used
In the direct Australasian-North Atlantic American
trade Instead of tho twolve now available, so as to
give a threo weekly service.
Third of Ile.nnlnr Direct Line.
The orfolk I tho third of the ships of the Federal
and Shlro line fleet to bo so employed. The Banff
shire, tho first of this lino's meat ships, reached Bos
ton May 18 and New York City May 24. It was fol
lowed by tho Roscommon, which arrived here Juno 16.
The Norfolk left Brisbane, Queensland, April 27, and
called at Sydney, Queensland, Waltara, a small port
where thero In a meat packing plant, and Lyttelton
(New Zealand) and then coming by the Cape Horn
route put in at Montevldo, where It received a con
signment orf Uruguayan meat, consisting of 1,632
quarters of beef. Three other steamers ore loading on
their way, neamely, tho Kent, the Sussex and the
niac nntl Little Shlpmra TU-nresentetl.
Neariy all tho meat Importing houses of tho United
States aro represented In these shipments. The larger
quantities go to tho great packing houses of Armour
and Swift, whllo Cooke & Co. take 5,999 quarters of
beef and Thomas Borthurk & Sons several hundreds
of carcases of sheep. Besides the frozen fore and
hind quarters of beef and carcases of mutton and
lamb the, cargo Included 1,000 cars of preserved meats
and bags and packages of bones and other products
of the cattle raising Industry. Among the miscellane
ous cargo brought by tho Norfolk was a large ship
ment of copper. The meat ships, It Is said, while the
trade is developing, will complete their cargo with
kauri gum, hemp and wool, much of which previously
reached American ports only Indirectly, the exception
being about four ships which arrived at Boston In
the wool season.
It Is likely that the Australasian-North Atlantto
direct service will become definitely established llko
the corresponding service to tho North Pacific coast
ports from Australasia, so that each side will have a
flourishing meat Import trade. There Is said to be
no monopoly In the business, though the preat Chicago
packing concerns, foreseeing the development several
years ago and the Impending shortage of beef produc
tion In tho United States, provided against the con
tingency by Investing largely In cattle ranches and
slaughtering and packing establishments along the
River Plate, In Uruguay, and later In Australia, par
ticularly tho northern territory, and In New Zealand,
As common carriers, the line Is prepared to accom
modate Independent and all shippers.
Australian Ment Ports.
The Australasian ports In geographical order at
which meat Is shipped are as follows: Beef Cairns.
Townsvllle, Bowen, Gladstone, Broadmount and Bris
bane. Mutton, Lamb Newcastle. Veal, Beef Sy.
ney, Melbourne, Bluff, Oamaru, Tlmaru, Lyttelton,
PIcton, Wellington, Wanganul, Wautara, Napier and
Glsborne. It Is expected that the opening of the
Panama canal will accelerato the passage by ten to
Thero Is no difficulty In obtaining this cargo, and
the offer of space has been freely taken by the Aus
tralian shippers, who are looking to finding ultimately
an Immense market In the United States. That the
bulk of the meat brought from Australia Is frozen
and not chilled, It Is stated, Is due to the distance.
The time taken In tho case of the Norfolk from
Brisbane to Now York with tho Intermediate ports ot
call being eighty-three days, and the greater amount
that can bo carried of frozen meat as compared with
the chilled meat, the carcases of which require to be
hung without coming Into contact with each other, so
that there Is a greater chance of profit on the trans
portation risk. Chilled meat, again, must be mar
keted Immedately to prevent deterioration, but there
seems no reason why ships properly equipped should
not find the conveyance remunerative and that the
demand for consumption In the United States should
not give an outlet for tho supply on the basis of
reasonable ocean freight rates.
It may be added that strict orders have been re
cently Issued and are being enforced on the South
Brooklyn piers at the Instance of the United States
Department of Agriculture through the tocal office of
the bureau of animal Industry that all persons en
gaged In the unloading of Imported fresh meats from
vessels, cars, etc., and the handling and lugging of
the meat on docks, piers, wharves, etc., must wear
clean outer clothing of material which Is readily
cleansed and made sanitary. The inspectors are to
refuse to Inspect any product In connection with the
handling of which there Is a failure or refusal to com
ply with these requirements.
