The Canal and Freight Sates.
Of course the country will endorse
the recommendation of the Isthmian
Canal commission that "every lelt
Imste means of Increasing the rev
enue (from the canal) should be
adopted." The canal will have cost
when completed something like
M00.000.000. While It has been said
that heavy net profits need not be1
Immediately looked for to justify the
enterprise, yet no time should be lost
in putting the canal upon an actually
paying basis. ,
But, In spite of all this, the canal
would not come up to the objects set
forth for it if it failed to bring about
an equalization of our transconti
nental freight rates. From the
earliest canal agitation this has been
one of the arguments Held out that
It would tend by competitive lnflu
ence to level the cost of transporta
tion in this country.
It Is no wonder, therefore, that
such Interest' has been aroused over
the reputed causes of the failure of
Bernard N. Baker' scheme for an
independent Atlantic and Pacific
steamship line on the canal. Just as
Interest in the venture reaches from
New York to Ban Francisco, and tho
$15,000,000 project was apparently
getting on Its feet, It la suddenly
and completely wrecked and reports
are flying thick and fast to the effect
that the money magnates in combi
nation with the railroads blocked It.
At any rate, it is charged that banka
declined to favor tho proposed plana
and, therefore, they failed for want
of financial support,
Thcro Is a possibility that this ex
planation may not be entirely sound
and that tha banka, Just at this time,
have plenty of other reasons for not
wishing to underwrite the proposi
tion. But, at all events, shippers
must be counted In as among the
beneficiaries of this canal and it
must be ao operated as to benefit
them in the matter of cheaper rail
rates. Unless competition la allowed
to have Its natural sway this cannot
be done and that would be ,a
great mistake in connection' with'
the canal. But It Is a mistake with
which people need not concern them
selves too seriously at yet. The gov
ernment owns this canal and the ter
ritory through which It runs and It
has sole power to regulate lta opera
tion and It It hardly likely that the
government la going to conduct. it
In the Interest of' any private busi
ness enterprise, . no matter what
efforts may be exerted to that end.
Clogfing- the Wheels.
Above every other Interest and
consideration at stake In the Mc-
Namara case la that of Justice. If
this aggravating delay In drawing a
Jury It occasioned by a mutual deter
mination to facilitate justice, then
it may be pardonable, but if It is
done by one side or the other to
hamper Justice, It Is Intolerable. '
Powerful interests, .V are told,
are actively concerned In this court
proceeding at Los Angeles. It begins
to look so. It Is a misfortune for
both sldea that such a thing Is be
lievable. Too much baa been said
of tho large sums of money avail
able, of the combination of Influ
ences at work, to Inspire Implicit
faith In the simple effort of getting
down to a speedy hearing of this re
markable case. It may t be that,
owing to the bitterness of feeling en
gendered, prosecution and defense
suffer more or less from the crimina
tions of one another. But what the
publlo Is Interested in Is a fair trial
that will produce Justice. The, wheels
of the law's machinery should not
be clogged by these extraneous im
pediments. The view has been expressed that
tha newspapers have published too
much about the dynamiting, that
thereby it la .Impossible to find
twelve men without opinions on
it. That entirely misses the mark.
The best jury service Is not done
then dayt by men without opinions
and sooner or later we shall come to
act upon that In choosing our Juries.
One thing Is certain, the newspapers
have published no more than the
public demanded. It places the pre
mium on the wrong side to search
for the Ignorant juror. The chances
are thaUnearly any twelve men of
all those rejected In this case would
make as good a Jury as those who
will ultimately be selected.

The hcyise steel Investigation com

Mr. Littleton threatens to carry
hla fight to the floor of the house
this winter If the Stanley committee

when Martin W. takes to the wsr

will be very strange, though, if the
democratic leaders risk such a con
dition. No matter what waa proved
or which way the verdict went. It
would tend to disrupt their political
organization and mar plans for the
future. Just now Littleton appears
to be ruffled at personal attacks, but
the chances are that he will be

In the recent election held in Ne
braska tho total vote cast through
out the state was 225,380, according
to tho official canvass. In 1908,
being the last presidential election,
tho total vote polled in Nebraska
was 71,491. In the three years
elapsed since that high-water mark
the number of qualified voters en
titled to participate in the election
In Nebraska has unquestionably In
creased, no that It Is conservative to
figure the stay-at-homes at 50,000,
or almost 20 per cent,
Thla situation Is no different, per
haps, In 1911 than It has been in
other off years in reality the total
Is, wq believe, a little higher than
usual. But ,jflat does not alter the
stubborn fact that approximately one
voter out of five In Nebraska re
fuses to exercise hit right of tuffrage
In the odd election .years.
The general opinion It that a large
stay-at-home vote Is an evil that
should be remedied, but the remedy
baa not yet been proposed. One of
our lawmakers advocates a law to
penalize nonvotera by Imposing a
flO poll tax, of which $8 Is to be
refunded ..on presentation of a cer
tificate attesting participation in all
regular and special elections' held
during tbex preceding year. The nega
tive of this would be to pay a man a
premium of $8 a year for voting,
which might look more attractive.
Another suggestion Is that the stay-at-home
be disqualified to vote when
be fails to perform his duty and to
make reinstatement to the voting list
an onerous proceeding. . Still an
other way to eliminate the stay-at-
home vote would be to change our
method of balloting and. let the elec
tion officers gather . up the tickets
like a census taker instead of mak
ing the voter go to the polling place.
The stay-at-home 'problem Is not a
new one, yet seems to be becoming
more acute and perplexing, or rather
its consequences are becoming more
serious. A workable solution of It
would make a reputation over night
for the man presenting It.
The so-called competitive bids for
