Just One Discordant Note.
Among the numerous compliments and
words of praise showered upon The Bee for Its
part In promoting and organising the Christ
mas Ship, we have to record Just one discordant
note. We regret to nay that we have received
a letter from a subscriber practicing the profes
sion of dentistry In a little western Nebraska
town protesting against stimulating the Interest
In the Christmas Ship by reproducing In fac
simile a check contributed by the pupils of a
(uthollc parochial school, this being the first
check received from any school, and asking us on
that account to discontinue his paper. We refrain
from mentioning the name attached to the let
ter, not winning to thrust upon the writer any
free advertising, which might be barred by his
rode of professional ethics; nor have we wasted
time to check up the list of contributions to
verify his failure to send his mite to cheer the
sadness of the war orphans' Christmas. All
we can do Is to express our Intense sorrow for
a person iiosFersIng so narrow a mind and so
cold a heart, and to rejoice that In this great
state of Nebraska, filled with Intelligent, sym
pathetic, chlidren-lovlng and hsppliiess-sprea'd-Ing

Latest Railroad Remedies.
President Ripley of the Santa Fe railroad,
pursuing his plan for (loser mutual relations
between the railways and the public, now pro
poses that the federal government be given
memberships in the board of directors and that
the number of trains running over com
peting lines between given points be reduced In
the Interest of efficiency and economy. Com
plementing the first proposition, he would have
the government guarantee that tbe roads' net
earning for the next five years shall not fall be
low the average for tbe last five years, and also
C per rent on any additions and betterments
which, with the government's consent, the roads
Already the New Haven has taken President
Hadley of Yale Into Us board; the Southern rail
way has admitted Bishop John C. Kilgo of the
Methodlvt xhurrh and President Edwin A. Al
derman of the University of Virginia to Its direc
tory and the Santa Fe, Dr. Henry S. Prltchettof
the Carnegie Institute. So the idea of making
these concessions to the public through represen
tative men Is not new, although, of course, It
would be intrenched f official representatives
of the government. Instead of private citizens or
institutions were elected.
President Ripley Is not sure this plan would
meet the approval ot his own or other railways,
but he knows this, that If the agitation toward
government ownership Is to be answered, some
thing more must be done to establish closer con
fidences between these concerns and the public
they serve. Fundamentally, public antagonism
to railroads Is due to lack of public confidence
In corporate utilities. It would seem, then,
that the future management would depend
chiefly upon future conduct. Tbe object urged
for President Ripley's combination plan Is
economy and efficiency. No argument Is needed
that extravagance arid Inefficiency have to be
vigilantly guarded against, no matter how rail
roads are handled. And so long as this wast
Is reflected In the cost, the public Is going to
persist in Its right of protest. Public ownership
In other countries is doubtless justified as a
military measure, but bo such consideration
holds with u.i. Here It Is solely a question of
efficiency and economy a question of results.
The Associated Press.

Is so richly deserved, so perfectly put that The
Bee. one of the 900 newspapers which go to
make up the Associated Press, feels It cannot
forbear to give this additional publicity to the
statement. Other news agencies and as
sociations exist In the United States, 'tis true,
but there never has been but one Associated

Promise and Performance.
Every candidate soliciting votes during the
campaign either makes certain definite prom
ises or holds out expectations as to what he will
do it elocted. Fulsome pledges that consist
wholly of grlluerlng generaltles, . or which are
made subject to conditions that render fulfill
ment impossible, ntiould not only be taken with
a grain of allowance, but really tend to dt
credit those who resort to this Method of ol-
talnlng support by false pretense;. Where
candidate has never held office before, he may
with difficulty, be called to test promise by per
formance, but where the candidate has already
made a record as a public officer, bis past per
forruante of previous promises becomes the' best
promise of future performance. The voters are
coming to base their Judgment more and more
on deeds rather than on mere words, and when
faithful service insures endorsement and reten
tion, and broken promises are certain to be fol
lowed by merited rebuke and repudiation, our
standards or public life will be noticeably
Increasing; !'. perls.
The New York Journal of Commerce emphasises
as a Kluti of the times the marked Increase In exports
during the present month. The report of the New
York customs house for the first twenty dsys of Oc
tober shows the doubling of the exports of sugar to
England as compared with the figure for the entlro
month of September. In the first twenty daya of
this month sugar exports to England were 10H,O(il,j0
pounds, as compared with exports of Sl.7t3.fcl4 pounds
in Heptember. There were no shipments of foodstuffs
direct to Germany or Austria.
The export of foodstuff from October 11 to Oc
tober 20 were not o heavf aa In the first ten day of
the month. Denmark waa one of the few European
countries that took more from this port In the latter
ten dsys than In the first. Denmark took SS3.038
bushels of wheat, against 97,427 bushels In th first ten
days and 44,646 baga of wheat flour, against 10,106 bags.
England took less wheat and wheat flour, exports
of wheat being 218,600 bushels, against 2H8.286. bushels
In the first ten day. Export of wheat flour to Eng
land were S3.9t'4 bag and 787 barrela, against 49.S7S
bags and l.nxo barrels. France also slackened Its
demand for wheat and wheat flour, taking only 39.377
bushels of wheat, against 443,606 bushels In the first
part of the month.
Tempore rr Restrictions.
The effect of the British restrictions on goods for
the Netherlands which may be deatlned for Germany
ultimately Is apparent In the ten daya' statement. AJl
th neutral countries adjacent to Germany and Aus
tria except Denmark, appeared as smaller purchasers
of our foodstuffs during the ten days Just passed than
In the first period. The Netherlands took only 446.377
bushels of wheat, arrainst 1.049,622 bushels the first
ten day. Italy took only one-tenth a much aa In
the first period of te month. Only 171,916 bushels of
corn went to the Netherlands, against 496.9S1 bushels
the previous ten days.
Tho continuation of the growth of the export
trade, however, Is exhibited In the exports for the last
three daya. which were tlS.rs.tl.T9. against ts.K29.l78 for
the same daya last week and t8.997.196 for the same
daya last year.
large shipments of rubber boots have been started
from New England recently aa a result of the heavy
rains In France, Belgium, Russia and Austria. Tha
t'nlted Hosiery company of Boston reports that heavy
order for It product are being received.

Tha legislature Is powerless to change the
policy of the state in regard to taxation.
Flndlnr thla to be so. the single tax
advocate and their allies, the socialists.
have set about the task of amending the
state conatltutlon so the legislature would
be frcV to do as It might elect with our
revenue laws. It wa they who offered
the pending amendment No. 1 to the con
stitution, and a careless legislature let it
dhsb. knowing that It would be put. to a
vote of the people. No other set ot men
had anything to do with proposing this
dangeroue amendment. It la the product
ot the single tax and eorlallat propaganda
In this state, whose leaders are attempt
ing In a iulet way to put It over upon
the property owners of Nebraska.
It Is aenerallv known that tbe single tax
Idea la to put all the tax upon tbe lands
mi to exeiriot all tironrtv above ground.
Thla Idea waa put Into law in Vancouver,
Canada, where It has been tried out to
the limit, producing .ondltlons moKt dls-
itrous. The lands were taxed to death,
the owners abandoning cr permitting the
tata to sell the acres at public tax sale.
The single tax policy In western Canada
ha proved rulnou to thousands of prop
erty owners. Nebraska can never afford
to adont this rjollcy by engrafting the
pending amendment upon our organic law
The constitution now requires just and
equitable levies upon all c!asss ot prop
erty without discrimination. We must not
lend encouragement to a proposal to take

A Sixth Ward Statement.
OMAHA, Oct. Z7.-To the Editor of The
Bee: In Justice to William E. Davis,
candidate for the Board of Education
from the Sixth ward, and without any
reflection upon Mr. Warfleld, also a can
didate. I deem the following statement
The Clalrmont Improvement club ami
th citizens generally regarded Mr. War
fletd aa an available candidate and no
one thought of opposing him. But Mr.
Warfleld absolutely refused tttvrun. The
name of Mr. Davis was then propoaed.
and Mr. Warfleld promised his unquali
fied support andtagreod to. and did, take
his petition to obtain signatures, signing
the same hlmeelf. Afterward a member
of th cltisen's committee approaches
(Mr. Davis and asked him to pledge his
vot In advance upon certain matters.
Mr. Davis declined because It was ask
ing a pledge from him upon mattera con
cerning which he had had no mean of
obtaining information. However, he
gave assurance that he was unbiased
snd would klve his most careful con
alderation to the facts when placed be
fore him, and that he waa in no way
obligated, nor had he ever conversed
with any one on the matter In question
outside the citlxen's committee,
Mr. Warfleld then repudiated his pledge
to Mr. Davis, became a candidate him
self, and thereby withdrew hi previous
endorsement of Mr. Davis as a man of
Integrity and fairness.
If Mr. Davis Is elected he will go Into
the work of tha board without his hand
being tied and without being pledged to
any faction. Mr. Davis Is a man of In
tegrtty, one who doe thing snd will
vote hi honest convictions aa to what Is
best for our children and for our schools.
I belnlve in absolute fairness to all
teachers, and I have perfect confidence
that Mr. Davis will Investigate and de
termine Justly every question that comes
before him, but I do n,ot believe that the
cltisena of Omaha are ready to blindly
follow a leaderahlp which betrays a
friend and repudiates a solemn promise,
alinply because a substantial citizen re
fuse to pledge his vote before he ha
heard the evidences or know anything
about a jaae. J. H. PARRY.

CLINTON, a C, Oct. 26. To the Editor
of The Bee: This I to advise that
throughout the cotton belt, cotton Is a
aleabla article today at a price In tha
neighborhood of 7Vs cents per ' pound
average. Twenty years ' sgo that price
would hav been considered pretty fair.
It la considered very low today owing to
th extremely high price obtaineM In
For th last ten year the south ha
been Immensely paid for raising cotton
and there ha been a large accumulation
of money, putting the farmer Into ex
cellent position, so that a large percen
tage of them can hold their crop through
till next season if they desire to do o.
A very large percentage of them will not
sell at 714 cents per pound, nor even at
IS cents a pound. Not a few or them
would refuse to 'sell their crops st 12
cents a round.
Up to this date, th movement to the
rorta has been about one-third of the
normal, which means that two-third of
th cotton which normally goea to ex
port up to thla ttm I atlll being held
in the hands of the farmers, who are
unwilling to part with it at tha market
Southern mills hav bought sparingly
because they looked for a lower market
and desired to buy their stock at th
lowest posslbl figure. Northern mills
have don th same. British mill have'
made but slight purchases. Continental
mills and the Japaneae hav also been
but light purchasers.
In consequenoa. the burden of purchas
ing the crop, so far a offered, has fallen
largely upon the speculative element, re
sulting In th price going down 'to 74
cents per pound average.
"Th buy--bl movement" will not
carry the aurplua crop of thla year. The
only thing that will carry It I for the
price to decline to a point at which It
la a flna speculation, sufficiently fine to
Induce big money to buy cotton for a
long wait. That level may hav been
reached or It may not hav been reached
as yet. Th chance are th price will
sag I or l'i centa per pound lower. In
th meantime, "the buy-a-bal move

to the farmer Is gain to the manufac

the south buys from Itself X.ono,mn bales
of cotton a year, or one-fifth of the
crop, snd thla year will probably take 22
to 33 per cent of the ciop. .Moreover, the
war has Increased the prices of commodi
ties rsised In the cotton belt other thsn
cotton, and to such a degree that the
losses on cotton arc quite largely reduced
by the gains on other commodities.
If the newspapers had let "the buy-a-
