What Will Georgia Do About Itf
With the whole country aghast at the mob
murder of Leo M. Frank, the all absorbing Ques
tion Is, What will Georgia do about It?
No one can read the account of the deliber
ately planned and unimpeded lynching without
telng forced to the conclusion that the authori
ties were either cognizant of, If not In complicity
with, the blood-thirsty outlaws, or wilfully and
recklessly negligent of their duty to protect
Irank. knowing full well the danger with which
be was constantly threatened.
Secretary Daniels rushes into print to give
expression to his Indignation, coupling with It
the statement. "I have no doubt the governor of
Georgia will employ every possible agency to
discover the mob murderers and to bring them
to trial and punishment."
For The Dee, we regret to say that we enter
tain a whole lot of doubts, and believe we re
flect the general sentiment of a multitude of
dcubters. Members of the Georgia prison board
have already begun exculpating the prison offi
cials, and the governor, instead of immediately
acting, waited to be called upon to do something
by the sheriff of the county in which the crime
v-as committed. Of course, Georgia will go
through the forma of Investigation, and may
even return a few indictments, but Georgia will
have to do more than merely make motions to
regain any measure of outside confidence in its
purpose to protect life there and to do justice.
The Looting- of the Bock Island.
The astounding disclosures made by the In
terstate Commerce commission as a result of its
Investigation of Rock Island affairs have been
laid before the Department of Justice, as well
as the public. Tt is now to be determined if any
process of law is capable of reaching the men
who have been guilty of the unscrupulous jug
gling of other people's money, as shown in this
case. The report of the investigators shows the
loss of many millions of dollars, due to the
wrong handling of the business of the company,
charges misrepresentation to stockholders and
other forms of deception, and points out that
the stock of the company, selling at over $200
a share twelve years ago, has been brought to
20 as a result of the mismanagement of those
in control. This wrecking of a prosperous cor
poration through alms of ambitious financiers
Is another significant signpost on the way of
business, and its lesson cannot be mistaken.
It is peculiarly illuminating to find in the
report that large sums were paid to individuals
and other agencies, whose clamorous advocacy
of truth and righteousness In all things might
lead casual observers to look upon them as
sleepless sentinels at the temple ot justice. One
of these Is C. H. Venner, who has so persistently
attacked the credit of Omaha, and another is a
Denver newspaper, whose boast is that it has
a "heart and soul." It evidently baa some of
the other things that make up physical and
spiritual perfection. -
Aa for the Rock Island 'railroad, It should
soon be rehabilitated and restored to Us high
place among the trafflo bearers of the world.
It traverses a prosperous region, serves an In
dustrious and thrifty people and no good reason
for its being long in the hands of a receiver can
be noted just now.

Why Japan Unit Fig-Ming-.

Us armies in the field, and the last hundred
days of the war, leading up to and including the
decisive battle of Mukden, were financed prac
tically by funds obtained (n the United States.

100,000.000 in Europe, and was refused; this
loan was underwritten by ft syndicate of Amer
ican bankers and it was on this money that
Japan was able to prosecute its share of the war
until mediation was proposed by President
Roosevelt. Victorious, but penniless, Japan was
ready to conclude a peace on any torms that did
not carry abandonment of everything gained by
fighting, and Von Wltte knew what he was
doing when he answered, "Not ft kopeck!" to
the Japanese demand for indemnity. And Japan
knew it, too, and did not press the point
These facts should also be recalled whenever
talk of Japanese attack on the United State Is
heard. The little brown brother ia active and
ambitious, but not altogether without common
