It waa a rather Jovial assemblage of el a tea
men that congregated under the dome at Wash
ington yesterday and waited the click of the
gavel to call them to organised work as me,ra
bers of congress. Some who answered the roll
call oa adjournment day In July were missing,
and others still bore signs of contusions and
echymoalses, reminders of past turmoil la the
legislative balls, but all who Joined la the first
sesstoa were feeling good, so far as outward ap
pearances afford proof. The caucus had planned
the program, which contained nothing contro
versial, beyond the registration of the majority
and minority preferences for officers, and this
was perfunctorily formal. The way la now opea

The spirit of the gathering waa made the

Plainly Short of Prospectus.
Because of the number of conversions of
national banks Into atate banks in Nebraska
and of the further fact that this movement,
most noticeable at the time the federal reserve
law became effective, la continuing even now,
la taken by our democratic senator's personal
organ to mean that the lack of a similar guar
anty fund is the weak spot In the new national
bank law. Our Nebraska deposit guaranty has
done tolerably well, whether becauae It has had
no severe strain alnce its Inauguration or be
cause of Intrinsic merit. Is yet to be proved.
There is no question that the character of
tanking In Nebraaka baa materially Improved
alnce the days of the numerous bank failures,
and that the risk covered by the insurance fund
is probably leaa baxardoua thaa ia most lines of
business. Regardless of this, however, we ven
ture the opinion, based on observation and re
port, that the gain of the atate banking system
at the expense of the national banking system
Is not specially because of the guaranty feature,
but in apite of it, and that If thla feature were
present in both, or absent from both, the num
ber of conversions would be still larger.
Our democratic friends may aa well admit
that the new reserve banks, tested by actual
operation, do not measure anywhere near up to
prospectus, and that the benefits so far accrued
are slight aa compared with the huge cost of this
newly created machinery, to say nothing of the
Inexcusable partisanship and favoritism In thu
arrangement of the districts and the location of
the reserve bank cities la reckless disregard of
the natural currents of commerce. The very fact
that national banks are giving up their charters,
and those that hold their charters make such
little use of the reserve banks, ia the strongest
evidence possible that the law does not do what

Upheaval in the Boy 8oonts.
The withdrawal of Ernest Thompson-Seton
from' the American Boy Scoots thrusts that
movement Into unwonted prominence. His
assigned reason for giving over bis activity with
the organisation does not exactly square with the
statement made by others la high authority with
the scouts. The charge of militarism Is not new
a this connection, and it has not been very long
alnce Thompson-Seton and Badon-PoweU both
publicly defended the Scouts against the accusa
tion. Events have proven that in Great Britain
the Boy Scouts are essentially military, and the
same Is very likely true In this country. Just
why It should be so vehemently denied Is not
exactly clear. It Is Impossible to have thla or
any similar organisation without aome element
of military control and discipline, and the train
ing. If It la to be at all efficacious, must be on
the basla of military routine.

common people gam them the chance to
show their hand at making good. They
began by pulling off th moat expensive,
th most gaudy ahow at the coronation
of Wood row that haa ever boon pulled
off In this country. Then when their
congress got busy at keeping IU pledge
to the people, they cut the Income of
the government In two and spent over
a hundred million more, than any con
gress sver had don before, not seem
ing to realise that a small income and a
large outgo would find tha bottom of
th strong box sooner or later. But
when the fact finally soaked through
they put en a couple more direct tax,
and yet they ar running behind seven
to ten million per month after they hav
been drawing on thoee bonds that were
