' Labor Day,
On this day the people of the United States
pause for a time in deference to a fundamental.
"In the aweat of thy face shalt tnou eat oreau,
the primal curse pronounced against the offend
ina- Adam, waa one of the greatest blessings co
ferred on him and his descendants. To work is
to accompliah, to create, to produce, to add to the
world's turn of achievement and accumulation. It
light the inspiration and give vitality to hope,
it spurs ambition and plumes the wing of im
agination, and brings its reward to all who
earnestly, and honestly consider it not as a handi
cap but a an opportunity. The drudge is not
him who toils at some humble task; the man who
honora hia employment by hi endeavor honor
himself. He who does not find occupation in the
work at hand, who can not appreciate hi own
contribution to the whole of man' effort, de
grade himself and loses the nobility that arise
from the condition of the real worker. '
And thi is why Labor day is observed. It Is
not merely an occasion for the parading of the
numerical strength of organized labor, nor for the
utterance of phrases of praise and encouragement
It haa, or should have, a deeper significance, a
holier meaning. All nature teems with example
of creative and productive effortt It is one of the
three-fold attributes of the Almighty. Man who

and holy." ' ' '
When you watch the marchera go by today,
try to realize they typify not only the greatness of
the American people, but the good of all the peo
ple, past, present and future. Social and
economic problems of deep complexity confront
us now, as they always have, and our progress to
their solution seems slow and uncertain, but the
intrinsic and extrinsic importance of Labor is
above all. Real work is man's highest destiny.
Light on the Torrens Law.
The Nebraska Legislative Reference Bureau
performs a real public service in printing and cir
culating a bulletin dealing with the Torrens land
transfer law, enacted by the last legislature. The
bulletin carries much useful information on a sub
ject of prime importance to land owners, showing
the growth of the Torrent System In other states,
court rulings on the law, and a comparison of the
essential features of the Nebraska law with similar
law in operation in twelve states,
The Torrens system of land transfer seeks
to abolish the present wasteful and costly methods
of title record and to aubstitute a simple certifi
cate of ownership, of which a public record is
kept Every other form of property may be dis
posed of at will, but a change of ownership of
land la hedged about by expensive legal details
and bulky records which draw the sanctity of
usage from the inventive skill of some European
land grabber, If it no easy task to make a breach
in the defenses of a system which affords an ever
growing source of revenue to its beneficiaries. -
The profitable character of the older tyttem
explains why the simpler method of title trans
fer doe not (peed up and justify the claims of its
supporters. The Nebraska law hobbles the move
ment at the Mart by requiring a petition of 10
per cent of the freeholders of any county before
the county can install the system. This, in itself,
is a serious handicap. Nevertheless a start has
been made in Seward county and Dawson and
Lancaster counties are moving In the same direc
tion. For Douglas county, the chief mart and
mint of the title business, the 10 per cent require
ment practically makes the law a dead letter.
Democratic "Harmony" 8till Rage.
The era of good feeling between the leader
of the unterrified in Nebraska got another uplift,
when Brother Charley Bryan informed the wait
ing public .that Chairman Langhorst was not
authorized to speak for Brother Will Bryan, and
that no plans had as yet been made for the
presence in Nebraska of the great commoner dur
ing the campaign. Thua ia the world enlight
ened to the depth of devotion the teveral
democrat of Nebraska hold for one another.
Our senator, o( course, will welcome any sign of
the olive branch from the late secretary of state,
but no hint of such an offer is noted. On the
contrary, it is made plain that if the peerless does
come to his home state to help out before election,
he will make a definite choice of those for whont
he askt assistance, and that he it not likely to
forget thote who took such pleasure in thwarting
his ambition to go to St Louis at a delegate. The
joy of eliminating Bryan in April it certain to
have an echo in November.
Control by the Nation.
One of the interesting feature of the passage
of the eight-hour law through congress waa that
at no point along it hurried course was any ques
tion of state' right seriously raised. ' It was
agreed from first to last that the emergency
waa one for the nation to deal with, Here ia one
of the best possible example of the desirability of
national control over matters that affect the
nation. Just as much reason exists for rele
gating railroad wages and hours of labor to atate
regulation a did for the condition reached
under the child labor law. Yet that measure met
determined opposition because it invaded the
aacred domain of state's rights. And the same
logic will apply to the fixing of ratea for com
merce between the states. It ha been foundthe
only rational way to deal with the great questions
of national life. On this point the republican
party haa divided aharply with the democrats
from its birth. State sovereignty must not be per
mitted to retard national progress. .
; It is gratifying to have the assurance of
County Attorney Magney that the Milk Dealers'
association is not a combine to boost prices.
This and other trade associations, it should be
understood, are designed for the social, philan
thropic and mental uplift of the members. The
matter of prices never mar the studious serenity
of meetings. No, never. The uniformity snd
unvarying samen? of t price boost too often i
mistaken for a combine, whereat the real cause
of the uplift may be traced to the purity and sus
taining nature of our celebrated atmosphere.

Dual Form of Tax.
Washington, Aug. 80. To the
Editor of The Bee: Am enclosing you
copy of an Item which I trust will be
of sufficient Interest to the readers of
your paper to Insure Its publication.
The tax question la given so much
Importance these days throughout
the country that your readers may
be very glad to get the specifications
of the dual tax in the enclosed ex
planatory form.
The Hem Mr. Milton refers to is:
"The chairman of the committee
on taxation for the annual session of
the National Grange, to be held In
this city In November, announces that
his committee will recommend the
dual tax system, advocated by R. O.1
Richards, for their consideration and
endorsement. '
The dual tax differs from the sin
gle tax advocated by Henry George,
in that It standardizes the assess
ment of land, and does away with as
sessors and equalization boards for
protracted periods, and provides for a
small uniform Income tax In addi
tion to a tax on land. It allows all
land owners to deduct 5 per cent of
the assessed value of any tract of
land from the Income of such land
before paying an Income tax from
that particular tract of land. It also
exempts all kinds of improvements
and personal property from dlreot
taxation. It makes the Income tax a
lien on land and business, and ap
plies the registration laws as a pen
alty for failure to report or pay the
Income tax."
Happy Historical Hits.
GrlsWold, Ia., Sept. 1. To the
Editor of The Bee Columbus discov
ered a new world in the fifteenth cen
tury, and we are Informed that when
the Puritan fathers arrived on the
good ship Mayflower they were in
a reverent and thankful frame of
mind,. When the city of Boston was
a little insignificant village, one of
tha wise men of the place (and all
towns have them) treked out west
and on his return, imparted tha In
formation, that the whole blooming
country was ; worthless beyond a
radius of fifty miles.
Later, we hear of the heroes ot
Valley Forge and their meanderings
up and down the Potomao In brave
defense of principles, which they pre
sumed were right, with such words as
watchtul waiting yet uncoined. It
prayers for victory were offered, they
were probably answered, because
they established their point In creat
ing a nation amid a foreifn foe's bul
lets and arrows ot murderous red
skins. To hasten on with the story, trouble
arose from another quarter aniK(he

In importance, we have a civil war on

When the emoke ot the battle had

those who cared to endure the hard
