Conference on Rural Crediti.
Among the conferences now in progress l
the gathering at Chicago of representatives of
J the farmers, to debate rural credit and farm
! finances. Thin will be one of the moot Impor
, tnnt of the early winter conclave, because of
the vast Internals Involved In the question. Agrl
l culture hag developed In the United States within
a few yesrs at a rate that hss exceeded even tbe
I most optimistic of prophecies. New method
i and the Improvement of old. the adaptation of
lilRh (trade machinery and power plant to the
farmer' tiaes, and similar Innovations, have
brought about such changes as have nerved to
emphaMre the' need for better methods of
financing tbe Industry.
Tbe farmer makes tbe complaint common to
all, that he must pay too much for the use of the
money he borrows, asserting he provides better
security and pays higher Interest than any other
branch of Industry. The problem Is how to rem
edy this condition, and make sure of the facile
operation of dependable means for financing
the steadily growing operations of agriculture.
j This can not be done on hard and fast lines, be
cause of the diversity of the factor that must be
considered, but a general plan may be outlined,
from whVh a serviceable system can later be
Tbe present conference at Chicago has op
portunity to be of real service to the farmer. The
only danger it faces Is that a general Issue may
become beclouded by special complaints.

Meeting of the Kaisers
The visit of Emperor Wilhelm to Emperor
Krant Josef is aa Interesting episode, specially
noteworthy Just at this time. While, perhaps,
fraught with little of far-reaching Importance, it
has sentimental value of Immense weight, and
as such will be regarded by students of the
war's progress. Primarily, it ought to be suf
ficient answer to reports that one of the eentrsl
powers Is seeking sepsrate peace with the en
tente allies. The strength of the Teutonic al
liance has for Its foundation the absolute under
standing between the two emperors and their
complete agreement on points of policy. Prom
this unanimity of relation has proceeded the
harmony tn the conduct of Joint campaigns,
which has been such a factor In tbe success al
ready obtained. The Germanic peoples are still
united, and the visit of tho German raiser to the
Austrian kaiser Is proof of this.
Does Suppression Suppress ?
Peterson has had an unique experience
among American cities, In that It baa been the
headquarters for an active group of anarchists
for many years. Somehow, anarchy and the silk
Industry seem to go hand In hand In America.
It Is not to tn other countries, and ought not to
be so In this. But Paterson Is the renter of the
great allk industry of the United States, and is
also the center for the J. W. W. and its kindred
organizations. Just now tbe city is trjlng to
suppress one of tho leading spirits of this irre
sponsible band of reckless agitators by prosecut
ing Miss Elisabeth Flynn, under a revived indict
ment charging her with inciting to riot.
Miss Flynn happens to be a native-born oltl
ren, and without doubt is entitled to full privi
leges in the matter of free speech. The ques
tion la of the sufficiency of the proceedings
against her. It may be recalled that about thirty
years ago a band of similar agitators stirred
Chicago to the Haymarket bomb episode and the
subsequent hanging of Parsons and others, and
tbe later pardon of three of their associates by
Governor Altgeld. The lesson of that affair
ought to be supplied by Paterson. Suppression
under the circumstances is likely to become op
pression, and fail of its purpose.
Before Elltabeth Flynn is banished from the
silk city, because of her unbridled speech, some
thing should be done to determine If her charges
have foundation, and if they have, to remove the
cause. Industrial peace can not be established
on suppression of free speech.
Bat, Of Course, It's Different
Here Is an Item which we take from the cur
rent Issue of Collier's Weekly, in which it is cap
tioned, "Weeding Their Own Patch."
We note that on a fair day In November the jus
tices of the appellate court of New York disbarred
thirteen lawyers, suspended seven front practice rof
one year or more, censured sis, and referred charge
against two others to the official referee. It this
keeps up we'll think more of what Is left of the legal
profession, and New York will be a eater place.
Of course, the reference is to New York
lawyers, hut recall, If you please, the outcry
when The Bee not so many moons ago suggested
that the reputable members of the Omaha bar
do a little house-cleaning on their own account.
New York doubtless has more of crooked lawyers
aa it has other crooked folks, but also has some
thing to show for Its efforts at renovation, as
witness the number of disbarments and suspen
sions from practice. By the way, how long is it
since a lawyer practicing in Omaha, no matter
what questionable deals be may have pulled off,
has been disbarred T
' riareback Over the Filipinos.
The wordy clash between the secretary of
war and a former president of the United States
gains public attention through its lack of dig
nity, rather than because of Its Inherent merit.
Fome degree of petulance is shown by each of
the gentlemen, whose testlness on the topic gives
to the little tilt piquancy it might otherwise have
The fact of the matter Is, the democrats
sought to discredit as far as possible the work
done by the republicans in educating the Fili
pinos and advancing them along the road to ul
timate self-government. Unable to carry out
their oft-repeated promises of immediate inde
pendence for the Philippines, the democrats sub
stituted the removal of competent American ad
ministrative officers, to make room for Filipino
politicians. A similar policy was pursued as far
aa possible in this country. The natural, result
was confusion and deterioration In the publto
service of the islands.
This is not the only point on which the demo
cratic administration haa failed, nor la it the one
on which the disapproval of the public will even
tually rest. Diversion occasioned, by the present
outburst will not serve to detract attention from
the manifold ehortcoraings of the party in power.
The law of Nebraska regulating automobile
driving requires a full stop wherever street cart
are taking on or discharging passengers, the
stop to continue until the car starts again. That
law Is being recklessly broken in Omaha a hun
dred times every hour of the day.

Columbua Telegram: Twenty cities and ton In
Nebraska are now conducting religious revivals on a
large scale. Do eiiyh meeting! work the welfare e'

Are such revivals of lasting value to the Christian
cause? These are serious questions. 1 know men
who give quick and positive answer to esrtl questlo
but I hesitate to attempt positive reply. I have noted
some such religious meeting which seemed to do goot'
I have noted others which seemed to work evil, rather
than good. It sll depends upon the forces In rharce
If the meetings are In charge of self-seeking evangel
ists, whose first thought la gain, then It cannot be
that the Ood will bless such efforts. If the meeting
be In charge of persons who sre truly trying to heifl

then they cannot fall to be of value. I believe ttw

women out of bad pathways and Into the good high
way. Would I favor a series of religious revival
meetings tn Columbus this winter? Thst question was
aimed st me today by Interested persons. I told them
I should want to know the men who were to conduct
the meetings. I should want to know the story of
their work In other tewns, and the effect of It. I will
give my money and my Influence to any movement
which will give promise of helping people to bett.'

Time has shown that the burden was In

All cliisen should share ths burden. No
exception should be made for any rea
son, neither should one business be com
pelled to take out license and another go
free. Kvery business and professional
msn should. If It Is necessary, pay some
direct tax. No good reason why a com
mission man should pay, and a grocer,
baker, laundry or any other man not,
nor I there any reason to exempt a
lawyer, doctor or preacher.
Railroads, telegraph companies, express
and telephone compenle should pay the
tax on the receipts and bills they issue
snd not the shippers.
Tax everything a little, then the tax
will be borne by all snd not the few.
Direct taxation will never become a

alike. This Is the only fair. Just way
