Railroads at Their Old Tactics.
Tho railroads are making tholr
customary protest before tho State
Board of Assessment, alleging that
their valuations for taxation aro too
high as compared with other prop
erty. The representatives of tho rail
roads must bo having a hard time
to keep a straight face while present
ing this pica. The State Ilallway
commission has been making a phy
sical valuation of railroad property
In Nebraska, and an far as It has
gone Its figures are higher for tho
physical proporty alone, without the
franchise, than aro tho assessed
values of the roads. But more than
this, tho valuo of tho physical prop
erty fixed by tho engineers, under
direction of tho railway commission,
Is considerably less In each caso, than
tho figures nt which tho railroads
Insist they should be put.
To a man up a tree It would look
as If tho railroad protest against the
tax assessment wero simply a move
to offset and divert attention from
tho physical valuation appraisement.
That thoro will bo somo tangible
stops taken toward republican reor
ganization along national lines has
teen plainly manifest ever since the
last presidential campaign. It Is
natural and inevitable that some
thing. should bo done to removo somo
of tho causes of dissatisfaction ro
bponslble for defeat, and more par
ticularly to prevent recurrence by
mnklnc It certnln that the next
standard bearer may havo an un
questioned title to his nomination.
Tho consensus of opinion seems
to be that the most feasible way to
bring this about Is to hold an Inter
mediate convention to change tho ap
portionment, of delegates. By such
change, representation in tho subse
quent nominating convention would
bo made to conform more closely to
tho party strength in tho rospectlvo
states and congressional aisiricis,
and tho outcry against overweighted
southern delegations stopped.

The Eleotion, Commissioner.
In the appointment of an election
commissioner under tho new law en
acted by tho last legislature, Dover
nor Morehead 1b to be congratulates
on having gotton away from the
wnrd-heoler cIobs, for all will agroo
that his seloctlon, Harloy Q. Moor
head, is a young man of unblemished
reputation and good standing In tho
community. Ho has been regarded
as a rising young lawyer, and made
creditable raco for tho district
bench at the lost Judicial election
Bo tho only surprise is that he
should bo witling to accept a Balarlod
nosltlon that through the proper per
formance of the duties will taKe mm
completely out of his profession.
Tho expectation, however, that we
will get "pure elections" over-nlgnt
that the contested olectlon 1b now a
thing of tho past, and that every
defeated candidate will hereafter bo
satisfied he has been honestly beaten
Just because the supervision of tho
election machinery has been turned
over to an appolntco of a nonresident
governor Is likely to bo illusory. The
new taw may work some improve

but the millennium in elections Is
yet to come, and our best wish for

New York Financial Chronicle.
While the business man who Is seized
with fright every tlmo he hears the
tariff discussed, while the banker Is com
plaining that we haven't a currency suf
ficiently elastic, and while the average
citizen feels a mood of economy stealing
over him, nature seems unperturbed and
Is working overtime to shower blessings
on all sides. Old Sol Is blessing Mother
Earth with his rich and warm raya In
a sacrificial effort to give us a bounti
ful harvest this fall, and thereby arouse
frail human nature from Its pronounced
case ot dejection and the pip.
They may cut the tariff If they wish
to, they may give the nation a better
currency system, but no congress can
stop old Sol from making the earth give
forth an unusual bounty of riches In tho
form of bumper crops.
The first crop report published last
week is a real tonlo for whatever depres
sion envelops us now. It. Is out of the
earth the new wealth comes each year,
wealth thaf muBt be moved and con
sumed. If nature's moods do not go awry
before the harvest we may confidently
look tor new yields which will exceed
,Hlll's great dream of $0,000,000,000.
Imagine what this wealth means to
commerce of this country. Think what
It represents to the prosperity of the na
tion. It will be crops, nothing else, which
will prove tho saving situation for this
country next fall. We may then hav
so much mpney as to becomo even In
discreet enough to buy automobiles. And
tho soup houses about which we hear the
croakers talk so much will again fade
away as a mere memory of 1833.

Protection for the Birds.
NEW YORK. May 10.-To the Editor of
The Bees Members ot the Audubon so
ciety are deeply Interested In legislation
relating to the protection ot birds. The
aigrette Is torn from the live mother lrd
In the nesting season and the little ones
are left to starve. Intelligent, kind
hearted women wear theee aigrettes,
birds ot paradise and other hat adorn
ments because they are Ignorant as to
the manner In which these things art ob
tained. No self-respecting woman (and,
above all, no mother) with anything re
sembling a heart, will consent to wear
aigrettes or certain fura. once sli has
learned of the unspeakable horrors that
attend their procuring.
President Wilson has this month con
vened a special session ot congretr. tor
tne purpose of passing the revised tariff
act The officers of the Audubon society
have strong grounds for believing that It
will be possible to have Inserted In this a
provision prohibiting the Importation ot
aigrettes, provided a wide campaign of
publicity can be Immediately Inaugurated.
There will undoubtedly bo strong oppo
sition to the proposed law opposition on
the part of merchant milliners who en
courage the aigrette atrocities as a source
of revenue. The matter Is In the hnds
of the American women.

seems to retard the growth of dandelions.
For my own part I do not think they
are such ugly flowers, for In some places
