Hughes Answtrs Secrtttry Redfield.
Mr. Hughei' reply to the demand of Secretary
Redfield that he lubitantiatc itatementi made at
Detroit came very promptly, and quite pointedly.
The letter from fomer Director of the Cemut
Durand ii a flat statement that hit reiignation
was asked for, Secretary Redfield wanting "to
create a vacancy" to be filled by hii own selection.
The Tittman eaie u quite similar, only nil suc
cenor as head of the geodetic survey wis first
made chief of the fish bureau, and then promoted
for "meritorious services." This at leait gives Mr.
Redfield what he demanded, the basis of the
charges that he had removed experienced men in
order to make "places for deserving democrati."
Hughei has had too much experience to make
erious chargei he ia unable to support, and the
president and his cabinet ought to know that, just
at they should have known their raid on the civil
service would rise up against them when they
faced another election. Thii epiiode is but added
proof that the present administration at Washing
ton has been not only maladroit but actually
itupid at times.
It is worthy of note, in passing, that the
Omaha World-Herald gave great display to Sec
retary Redfield's challenge, but totally suppressed
Mr. Hughes' reply.

rumors, and turn their attention to something else.

Hughes in Detroit
" Governor Hughes' visit to Detroit opened the
presidential campaign of 1916 and if we may fore
cast the events that are to follow by the omena
of Monday we would prognosticate an intensely
warm, vivid and humanly interesting period in

Ceding that Charlea . Hughes would prove to
e a cold proposition and therefore easy to beat

There is nothing cold about Mr. Hughes, Detroit
has learned. He is about as intensely human a
, piece of humanity as ever captured the hearta
of a crowd, and the more ocodIc in the United
'States he meets between now and November the
more votes will be cast for him. As a cam

Wheat Yield and Prices.
The sensational upward bound in the price
of wheat, following the publication of the August
crop estimate from the Department of Agricul
ture, deserves at least part of the attention it is
sure to get. To begin with, it does not presage
famine. The United States has wheat in plenty
to feed its people, and may have some left over.
Last years wheat crop throughout the world
wai above any known record. In the United
States it amounted to a billion bushels, for the
first time in history. The export demand was
not so large as had been looked for, because the
European countries alio harvested bumper crops.
The English crop was the greatest in many years,
owing to the increased acreage, and this despite
the war. Canada, Italy, Russia and France showed
similar totals, while from India, Australia, New
Zealand, Argentina and Chili yields exceeding
any 'former figures were reported. What was
raised In Germany and Auitria is not known, but
the governments of those countries insist that
Agricultural operations had not then been seri
ously interrupted by the ' war. This left the
world at the beginning of 1916 with the largest
surplus of wheat it had ever known.
Much less wheat was planted in the United
States this year, for the reason the farmers did
not feel encouraged to increase the surplus. With
the present estimated yield of wheat, all the nor
mal requirements of the United States will be
met, and about 34,000,000 bushels left for export
How much of last year's crop is left in the coun
try is not exactly known, but it is a considerable
quantity, and means that all anticipated demands
for wheat and flour can readily be met.
No one need go hungry in the United States
because of scarcity of wheat from which to make
flour, , The rampant bulls may hoist the price
even higher then it is, but sooner or later the
pretence of the actual wheat will be felt, and the
market will respond to the law it cannot always
evade, that of supply and demand. -

Closing Days of Congress.
Confuiion of an uncommon sort marka the
closing days of the present congress. It has been
in session since the first of December, and now
finds its most important business heaped up to be
disposed of under caucus rule In order that the
members may get out in time to participate in the
campaign. The democrats have adopted a pro
gram, convenient for their own purposes, to which
the republicans have properly declined to give as
sent It ahould not be required of the minority
that it partake of responsibility for mismanage-
ment on part of the majority. The democrats con
trol congress in both houses, and in turn the ma
jority ia controlled by the caucus, so that all leeis
lation is determined upon in its details behind
closed doors. This fixes the responsibility abso
lutely, and if Important legislation goes over as
unfinished business to the next session, it will be
becauae the democrats did not care to consider it

A. B. Stickney and Omaha.
A. B. Stickney came to Omaha at an im
portant time in the history of the city. For several
years sentiment had been slowly crystalizina on
the topic of s grain market here, and Mr. Stick-
Bey's advent proved the reagent needed to fix
opinion and beget action. He not only brought
his railroad and hia enthusiasm, but he invested
money in the enterprise he championed, and he
lived to aee much of his prediction for Omaha's
future justified by events. The grain market
waa established and it has grown and will rtow.
until it reaches the point that was set for it long
ago by one of the greatest of all middle west
grain men, the late P. D. Armour, who said
Umaha should be the greatest primary grain
market in the world. Mr. Stickney backed his
faith with works, and his example la atill potent
II Kept in mind. ;
Omaha won only part of its battle when the
Great Western came to release the city from
some of the shacklea put upon it by the big
Chicago lines. The future development of the
grain market depends on whether the city will
be able to overcome a tendency that atill exists
to drain its natural territory to enrich com
peting market towns. It la not likely another
Stickney will arise to help win this further
phase of the fight, so Omaha will have to depend
on ita own merits to make its victory in the
market complete. But it haa come a long way
since A. B. Stickney gave hia help and encour
agement and it ought to be able to solve its
problem for Itself. - t .

ProUbltion and Wagea.
Omaha, Aug. 10. To the Editor of The
Bee: I don't know who William Wrage is.
nor which end of the "wet" and 'dry" ques
tion he Is on, but I do know he la not ac
curate in hia letter to Tha Bee of last
Wednesday. He says, speaking of Denver:
"When prohibition went into effect employers
began to complain of dull business and laid
off men, and those working eight hours ware
put beck to twelve hours, and the commit
tee visiting' the governor sought work for
40,000. instead of 20.000." Will Mr. Wraga
cite one instance where men working eight
hours before were put back to twelve at tha
same wage?
Tha secretary of the brewery workers
union of Denver did not have the nerve to
claim mora than 2,000 workers thrown out
of employment by prohibition, yet Hr. Wrage
speaks of 40,000, which, multiplied by Ave
(the average number In a family), would
alone give Denver a population of 200,000.
This, added to those in other industries, pro
fessions and businesses, would make the
population of Denver ridiculously large.
lust because some brewery workmen, no
more skillful than a washerwoman," have
been able to secure the eight-hour day at 120
to $22 per week, through their union, it ia
not convincing proof that prohibition "cheap
ens labor."
There never was a business venture in
augurated where employes were paid top sat
1 arles to begin with. Tha salaries usually are
increased af the business warrants. -
As Mr. Wrage says, even the -"breweries
were paying miserable wages" until the em
ployes organised and forced a higher scale
of wages. L J. COPENHABVE.
