McAdoo and the Southern Bankers.
Spcretnry of the' Treasury McArtoo's dis
cipline of the southern bankers, raucht In an at
tempt to take undue advantage of the financial
condition produced by the war, will meet with
no protest except possibly" from a few other
bankers In the same boat. The treasury has
been responding to- appeals to help out the
banks, and particularly the' banks through the
south, but plainly the purpose Is not primarily
to help the bankers, but to help the people who
hare to borrow money to carry on their legiti
mate business operations. - The bankers whom
Secretary McAdoo has called with a turn have
been charged, and the charges have presumably
been proved, with both unnecessarily restricting
their accommodations and exacting exorbitant
Interest rates, knowing that there Is no escape
to their customers from them. In other words,
the help extended by the treasury to these south
ern banks has been used to oppress the borrow
ers Instead of to relieve them, and the secretary
does not propose to have the government en
gaged In that kind of business. '
The whole southern situation, due to tha
stoppage ot tha European outlet for cotton,' Is
causing much concern, but the people every
where realize that It Is not an affair solely of
the south. The buy-a-bale-of-cotton movement,,
which' ha enlisted support north as well as
south, Is designed to hold up the price by taking
5,000,000 bales off the toiarket, and It It works
out will to ail Intents and purposes be a $25,
000,000 loan to the cotton growers by the con
tributors. But If the south expects outsiders
to render assistance, southern bankers surely
must do their part instead of trying to use the
situation to - Increase their profits. . This ap
parently Is the view taken by Secretary McAdoo,
and it is the right view to take.
Still, we did not know that a bull moose
could aeroplane on his ears. - '

LookOnt for the Snickersnee.
Under the - caption; "Our Advice to Mr.
Wooster," Senator Hitchcock's local democratic
paper sagely declares:
If Mr. Wooster has a quarrel with tha president or
with tha party, tha courae of prudence and patriotism.
It aeema to our humble judgment, would be for him
to- wa.lt.unlH the. crista ti past then swing his snlck-ersnea.
Thanks for the Up on what is coming in the
democratic fold. It the senator's personal or
gan truly reflects hla sentiments, the advice he
tenders to another indicates the course he will
himself pursue in carrying on his quarrel with
the president and, the party. So look out for
the snickersnee rlf not now, a little later.

as can be, produced by our people. It, has not
been possible to produce them profitably against
the overpowering foreign cheap-labor' competition.-

those industries are developed under the stlmu

Making life" Insurance a life Protection.
A paper presented by .former President Taft
to the National Life Underwriters' association
meeting last week in Cincinnati dwells upon a1
new departure, that of life insurance' companies
exercising a sort ot continuous medical super
vision ' over' their policyholders, which, in - his
opinion, gives promise of more useful service
to society than. any. other feature of th busi
ness. Heretofore insurance companies have ex

catch many ailments or defects In their lndpl

.the conviction, that -modern methods of exami
nation and tests for detecting disease la early
stages,, and the application ot proper, remedies,
will do much to drive back the maladies that
usually come In middle life, and which are more

No. Tremble to Reach-the Great General.
- That cold and penetrating eye of his makes It im
possible to Imagine anybody taking any llbertlea with
Lord Kitchener; yet one of his greatest qualities, at
once useful and charming, la hie acceeaioiiity. Any-
bedy who haa anything to say to him can approach
him: anybpdy who has anything to teach him will find
ready and grateful learner. , Thla Is one of the
secrets of his extraordinary success and universal pop
ularity In Egypt. Lord Cromer waa a great Egyptian
ruler, and his services are Imperishable and gigantic;
but Lord Cromer waa the stern, solitary and Inaccessi
ble bureaucrat who worked Innumerable- hours every
day at his desk, never learned the Arable language,
and possibly never quite grasped the Arab nature.
Lord Kitchener la the cadi under the tre. The mayor
or the cltlicna of the little Arab village can come to
him, and the old soldier, and even the fellah, alon;
and they wilt find Lord Kitchener ready to listen and
to 'talk to them In their own tongue, to enter with
gusto Into Jhe pettiest details of their' daily and
squalid lives, and ready also to apply the remedy t
such grievances or to supply such wants aa commend
themselves to hla judgment.
Kitchener's Real Dlst Inctlea.
A great aoldler certainly, but perhaps a greater or
ganiser than ahythlng'efse." This la hia "supreme qual
ity, and for that quality there Is necessary, above all
things, a clear, penetrating brain. He doesn't form
any vlvkins as Napoleon uaed to complain of some of
tils marshals. At school ha waa celebrated for his
-knowledge of mathematics, and especially for his phe
nomenal rapidity In dealing with flgurea. and It was
not accident thnf so truly a scientific mind foflnd Hi
natural place In the engineers. A mathematician, an
engineer, a man of science, a great accountant these
things he haa been In all his enterprises. It waa .these
qualities that enabled him to make that aatoundlng
i ai! way which brought Cairo almost Into touch with
the Caliph, who. with hla predecessor, the Mahdl, and
with hla tragically potent ally, the hungry and aU-
devouring desert, had beaten back so many other at
tempts to reach and to beat him.

and reenter my remarks on one commis

worka stands out In such bold rellf that
for tbe sake of Justice I conscientiously
feel 4t my duty to champion bis .cause.
He Is the bead of our public" Improve
ment department Thomas - McOovern. ' a
gentleman ot at aril tut qualities . and nn-
lmpeichaule character. .
From' practical experience I .nay" that
there never waa an official In charge of
public improvements In Omaha who was
more in aympathy with public need, more
anxious, to serve the people and to- have
public Improvements made economically
than CommiaakMier McOovern. . Not
single piece of city Improvement has gone
in without his Inspection, 'and he haa
dono more and better work at a less coat
tbaat was ever accomplished la previous

should Mr. McOovern ' be held reapon
Bible for laxity In Mr. . Kugel's depart
