, Far Side and Near Side.
The question of stopping cars at far
side or at near sldo of street Inter
sections Is having serious considera
tion by our city authorities, and tho
transition will probably soon be bad
that will placo Omaha In tho list of
near side cities.
On the score of safety, tho near
side unquestionably has the better of
tho argument, because it forces tho
car to Btop on arriving at the Inter
section, and to mako tho crossing on
tho slow starting speed.
On the score of convenience, the
far sldo seems to be preferred by
street railway operatives. To pas
sengers It makes little difference
which sldo of the stroet they are
loaded or unloaded, providing they
know which sldo it Is to be, except
whero streets are unpaved. On un
paved streets far sldo stopping brings
tho platform and stops at tho cross
walk, which near side stopping docs
not do. If the change Is to bo made,
tho ordinance should, by all means,
retain far sldo stopping on unpaved
streets.
Othcrwlso aside from a slight di
version of tho traffic at Intersection
points, near sldo stopping will put
Omaha in lino with tho practice In
other largo cities of tho country.
Causes of Poverty.
According to nn Investigation of
moro than 0,700 cases of dependent
families In New York by the Asiocla
tlon for Improving Conditions of the
Poor to ascertain the causes of pov
erty, 40 per cent is due to sickness,
37 per cent to unemployment and 5
per cent to Intemperance, that is ex
cessive use of Intoxicants.
These figures aro full of serious
meaning, especially to the most con
gested centers of population. Why
Is the porcontngo duo to sickness so
great? Unsanitary living is the
prompt reply. In New York City,
and doubtless In other of tho larger
cities, tho question of ront, ns every
ono knows, is a vital one. According
to tho Now York World, the average
worker must pay out 33 per cent of
his earnings for ront if bo gots a
placo fit to live In, while, as a mattor
of' proportion, ho should not have to
pay over 20 per cent. This results In
crowded rind squalid quarters, henco
sickness. Hero Is one of tho big
tasks for the sociologists.
Dut another Interesting, and wo
should say, oncouraglufraspect Is that
only C por cent of tho poverty Is
ascribed to drink. This contradicts
the current bollof that Demon Rum
Is at the bottom of most of tho mis
cry In our large cities. Poverty
comes from a number of contributing
causes and often from sovoral operat
ing nt tho same time.
A Two-Battleship Nation.
Prosldont Taft'fl eminent service
to tho causo of world peace permits
him to say without being misunder
stood that:
I bellovo public opinion In this country
warrants thoso In authority In Washing
ton to continue tho policy of building two
most formidable battleships every year,
as this is necessary to keep our navy In
ndvqtiata condition.
This Is a two-battloshlp-a-year na
tlqn, and all tho sophistry in tho
form of sop for votes will not change
that fact. Tho insincerity of tho
last democratic houso majority In
opposing tho two-ship measure was
too obvious to decoivo any consldera
bio number of poople. That attitude
was in sharp contrast with tho an
tagonism of leading democratic sen
ators to the poaco treaties advanced
by tho prosldont. Tho conflict of
conduct betrayed tho political trick.
In his addresB upon tho launching
of tho super-dreadnaught, Now York,
tho president, without playing to the
gallorlos, bluntly stated tho case as
It appears in tho eyes of reason when
ho said:
Wo all hope the New Turk will never
bo used for war. Wo hopo that Its use
to tho country shall be In Insuring peace,
In that all nations of the world will see
that we aro ready to defend ourselves
f the occasion should arise.
The Automobile.
Another automobile ordlnanco has
been passed with a long list of re
strictions, most of which are doubt
less sound in theory and may bo
made so in practice it properly en
forced. Wo seem to bo fairly well
supplied with automobile regula
tions, now for results.

most modern Inventions, entails a

have to adjust themselves to such

careless and somo indifferent auto
mobile drivers, and they must be
held to a strict accounting; but all
the carelessness is not to be found nt
the steering gear of the auto. If
after tho ctiauffour is held to a rlsid

DIED WHILE IN OFFICE
Seven Vice Presidents and Five Presidents Are Chronicled.
New York Times.
Five presidents of the United States
died when they were In office William
Henry Harrison, April 4, 1311, of bilious
pleurisy Zachary Taylor, July 8, I860, of
bilious fever; Abraham Lincoln, April
15, U65; James A. Garfield, Heptomber 19,
1881, and William McKlnley, September 14,
1801. The last threo named were mur
dered. Seven vice presdents have died In of
fice and all of them from natural
causes George Clinton of New York,
April SO, 1812; Elbrldge Gerry of Massa
chusetts, November 23, 1SH; William H.
King of Alabama, April 18, 1K3; Henry
AVIIaon of Massachusetts, November 22,
1S76; Thomas A. Hendricks of Indiana,
November 25, 1885; Garret A. Hobart of
New Jersey, November 2L IS99, and James
A. Sherman of New York, who has just
passed away. '
When he died Clinton was 73 years of
age, Gerry was 70, King was 07, Wilson
was C3, Hendricks was K, Hobart was S3
and Sherman had just passed his fifty
seventh birthday. With tho exception of
Hendricks, who was of Scotch-Irish,
which is very much the same thing as
being Scotch origin, they wero all of
English parentage. They were all also men
of many high and no mean qualities so
far aa the men who have written about
them since their dei.th have observed,
and each of them did his part well while
ho was among tho living just as ho is
highly respected now that ho has joined
tho dead.
There was George Clinton of Now York,
who was vice president with Thomas
Jefferson from March i, 1S06, to March 4,
1809, and with James Madison from J t arch
4, 1S0O, to April 20, 1812. when he died
with about one year of his second term
in this offjeo to servo. Clinton was a man
of the highest character and of long and
vailed experience In tho public service
Then thero was Elbrldge Gerry of Mas
sachusetts, who died while holding the
office of vice president. Ho was a grad
uate of Harvard and made a "most ex
cellent start In statesmanship when In
hla thesis, submitted for the M. A. de
gree, discussing the right of tho people
to evade ruinous Innovations In trade
and revenue laws, expressed his views
on the principles of the stamp act and
other offensive measures enacted by the
British government for tho oppression of
tho people of the colonics. That was in
tho very early days, when Gerry was
working out for tho country and by him
self, with rare good sense, somo of tho

ners had to deal.

CANADA'S 0LUB
A Workable Trust Law and
The United Bhoe Machinery company of
Canada, a subsidiary of the company of
the namo name on this side of the lino,
has been condemned as a combine by a
Quebec court and Is subject to an order
of dissolution unless It conforms to law
within six' months. The ruling Is based
on the company's contracts whereby cus
tomers are prohibited from," using other
machinery than that which ,tho company
supplies.
Tho first step ,ln' tho action Just con
cluded was begun In January, MIL The
usual technical objections to such pro
ceeding were Interposed and ono appeal
.taken to tho judicial committee of the
privy council of England. Even with
these delays, which served to clear away
obstacles to the administration of the
law, Judgment was had In twe.nty-one
months, a 'judicial speed record hardly
possible In tho United States In cases of
suoh magnitude. Prof. Bruco Wyman
of the Harvard Law school, reviewing the
Canadian act In the Boston Transcript,
points out approvingly tho simplicity of
proceedings under tho law ana tho pen
alties for violation. He soys, In port:
To obtain la tho first Instance an order
for a board of Investigation, tho act pro
vides that the application for suoh a
board may be modo to any high court
Judge by any six petitioners who are
prepared to declare that a combine exists
In respect to any article of trade or com
merce, and that prices have thereby been
enhance or competition restricted to
their detriment either; as consumers or
producers. Such an order must be
granted by the judge where the appli
cants are able to present prima facie
evidence sufficient to satisfy the judge
that there are reasonable grounds for
believing that a combine exists that Is
Injurious to trade, and that It Is In the
public Interest that an Investigation
should bo held. We are used to throw
ing the responsibility of beginning pro-
ceodlngW upon the attorney general and
attributing sinister motives to him when
he decides what trust to pursuo. But In.
Canada they leave It to those who suf
fer from tho exactions of the combines
to make their complaint heard, rightly
judging that If no ono Is complaining no
wrongs aro being wrought.
But once the Investigation is ordered
the government takes charge of the mat
ter; for; It has now become a matter of
public concern. It Is provided, therefore.
in the combines act that as soon as an
order for a board of Investigation of a
combine Is obtained the government must
forthwith appoint such a board.
The board has full powers to make a
searching examination, a condition of
things which does not always obtain
with our commissions. Por the purpose
of Its Investigation, every board has all
the power vested In any court of rec
ord In civil cases that Is, the right to
summon and examine witnesses under
oath, and the right to require the pro
duction of such books, papers or other
documents or things as the board deems
requisite to the full Investigation of
the matters Into which it Is Inquiring.
Moreover, whenever In the opinion of
the minister of labor the public inter
est so requires the minister of Justice
may instruct counsel to conduct the in
vestigation before a board. And pro
vision Is made In the statute whereby
the necessary expenses of the Investiga
tion aro met from a standing appropria
tion. Indeed, the proper expenses In
curred in connection with the matter
from first to last will be paid out of the
treasury. That Is, once thu government
takes over the proceedings they are
adopted ns Its own and held to be upon
a publio basis. .
The Inquiry concluded, the action of the
board depends largely upon tho facts
found. To a certain extent the board de
pends upon giving Its findings such pub
the duties of this office, for which he
had proved by his service In the senate
and as president pro tern, of that body
his special fitness.
Henry Wilson of Massachusetts, who
changed his name by legislative act from
Jeremiah Jones Colbrath to Henry Wil
son, because It was shorter and more
easily pronounced, was vice president
with Grant.- He did not last long after
his elevation to this offlco; but he proved
by long service his ability and his force
of character. He was not born with a
silver spoon in his mouth, but from his
infancy up ho hod a hard struggle in
making his1 way. With only twelve
months' schooling in eleven years he yet
during this time packed his head with
useful and valuable knowledge, and the
farm lad became the "Natlck Cobbler"
and afterward vice president. In which
office he distinguished himself by his ad
herence to what he regarded as sound
principle. The story of his life and
achievements reads like a fairy story.
Then there was Thomas A. Hendricks
of Indiana, twice elected vice president,
first with Samuel J. Tllden and afterward
with Grover Cleveland, and whose wholo
life was filled with worthy achievements;
then there was Garret A. Hobart of New
Jersey, a lawyer by profession, a success
ful politician and a man of affairs and
finally there was James S. Sherman, tho
tributes of whoso virtues are filling pages
of contemporary comment.
There was not one among these vice
presidents, whatever our feeling toward
them on account of their political affllia.
tions and sectional prejudices, who was
not worthy of tho office and who would
not have been nble had the call como to
fill the higher office "waiting for him In
case of death or accident It would be
well for the Ill-informed to read the
'"Lives of the Vice Presidents," of whom
It may be said In truth that they are at
least the second best men In the country,
A censorious generation, given to the
art of saying "smart things," Is addicted
to the very stupid habit of speaking with
impatience, If not contempt, of the offlco
of vice president, and Its incumbent. It
is the second highest office In the execu
tive department of the government, and
experience has proved that the people
have not been mistaken In the men
chosen by them to fill this high place.
every vice president, who has through
misfortune or crime been compelled to
assume the chief placo of executive
responsibility having discharged the
duties of the office of president with ad
vantage to the country. The death of
Vice President Sherman and the kindly
things that havo been sold about him by
press and public men since tho news of
his departure was received, prove among
other things how many Idle words are
spoken in time of great political stress.
FOE COMBINES
Penalties for .Violation.
Hclty as will arouse public sentiment, and
making Its recommendations such that
they will commend themselves to public
opinion.
Any combine or person reported by a
board as guilty of restricting competition
or of enhancing prices, v vho thereafter
continues In a -course against which the
board has pronounced, or falls to carry
out a recommendation n board has made.
Is guilty of an Indictable offense, and
liable to a penalty not exceeding $1,000
per day and costs during which the of
fense continues. After all, this Is a
penalty for disobedience after the tribunal
has told the parties concerned what Is
right and what wrong. It Is not like
tho provision of our Sherman law which
Imposes an unconscionable penalty upon
business men for actions In the past
which they honestly believed to' be en
tirely right.
In cose It should appear from the re
port of tho board that the holder of any
patent has abused his exclusive rights so
as to unduly limit the facilities for Its
use, his patent Is liable to bo revoked.
The act condemns the use of a patent
to unduly restrain or Injure trado or
commerces or unduly limit or lesson
manufacture or production or unreason
ably to Increase or enhanco the price or
unduly to prevent or lessen competition.
In tills respect the legislation Is Intended
to supplement the provisions of tho pat
ent laws of Canada against tho abuse of
patent right, which were rather elab
orately treated In these columns by the
writer earlier in the year. Where It Is
reported that a patent has been misused
to any of the ends above mentioned, the
minister of justice may apply to the
exchequer court for Its revocation.
Again, whenever, as the result of an
Inquiry, It appears to the satisfaction oi
the government that a combine exists
with regard to any article at tho expense
of consumers, and it appears that this
disadvantage to the publio Is facilitated
by customs duties Imposed on the article,
the government, without further legisla
tion, may direct either that such article
be admitted free Into Canada, or that
tho duty thereon be reduced to tuoh
amount as In the opinion of the cabinet
will give to the public the benefit of
reasonable' competition.

Por the leader of a nation
There's a wonderful elation
When he gets the news of victory com
plete; But there's also comfort waiting
For the man who htem them stating
That his efforts have resulted In defeat.
He can be an eight-hour sleeper.
He can sit down to his "three per,"
Par distant from the bustle and the roar,
It -"111 not be found essential
To meet people Influential
Who hammer with petitions on his door.
He can play the games that please
him.
And Indulge the moods that seize him
If he wants to take a trip to foreign
lands.
He can give a cheery greeting
To each friend he may be meeting
And not put In the whole day shaking
hands.
Thero Is Joy In the endeavor
To be powerful or clever;
But when a struggle has been gotten
through
There 1b surely compensation
In the blissful relaxation
Of the man who hasn't very much to do.
