When the conductor discov ered the character of the man he had as saulted he probably realized that he wa not the grand and lordly man street car conductors usually conceive themselves to be. A convenient lesson might be in stilled in this connection. It is now almost three years before the next republican national convention. A1 ready there are at least five prominently mentioned candidates for the presidency. Secretaries Taft, Shaw and Root, ah2 Vice President Fairbanks and Senator Foraker.. The secretaries seem to be in the lead up to this time but the f:ckl2ness of political issues, and the uncertainly of future developements, render all pro hecies in this regard practically value ess. During the year 1904 ten thousand peo ple were killed on railways in ibe United States, and about eighty-five thousand in ared. Over-seven hundred million pas ngars were carried, and hence one per. on was killed for each six hundred thous ind prssengers. One 0}' each seventy ^igfat thousand passengers were injured This ratio will be found to be more favor able than that ofcthjr localities. Insur nce companies count it a safer risk iave the insured aboard passenger trains ian elsewhere. :.k NO GRAFT IN IT. We notice that Editor E. E. Johnston oi iockwell City, is called to time becausi ie carries railroad transportation. Tht oily newspapers in Iowa that do not have ansportation are those that have been es .blished for so shcrt a time that the rail jads will not enter into contracts witl them. If Mr. Johntson is to be ctiticHe len must all the editors of Iowa be p.lacec 1 the same boat? The truth is, that -ixchange for advertising the railroads giv transportation instead of cash. 3n nim ases out of ten the newspaper geU th .vorst of the bargain. We have not a Joubt but thai if Mr. Johnston had n ived regular rates for all the railroar ivertising he has done this year and hat jaid cash for all his transportation would be many dollars in Jpocket Th ?n -nay have been a time when the railroads •ailed to get the worth of their money rom the} newspapers, but that time ha' ong since passed as anyone who wil 4 ance over the many railroad notice-jin the average Iowa paper will readily see The man who thinks the editor rides free" is very badly mistaken. UNFAIR JOURNALISM. In the dispute between Secretary Shaw ind Governor Cummins we think we know nough about both men to be sure that neither of them would approve unfair methods being emplojea by their parti -.os. We are therciore certain that th governor does not appro\e he course' he Register and Leader in pubiishiug large and misleading headlines concerning :be matter as it does in its issue of last Friday. Such comment as the Register makes in its headlines would be proper as editori 1 comment ahould the Register care to take a dee'ded stand, but they are net proper as a statement of facts. Reading the heavily headed article one finds that it is simply a quotation from a New York torial comment and that the comment is slightly unfavorable to the secretary. The animus of the Register is unmistakable. nhat more periodicals do not realize the I as Secretary Shaw might well pray to be injury resiiltingjirom there sources, and saved from his fool friends, so might the ^heir responsibility aVpublic journals to governor beg for a cessation of that un fairness which can serve only to arouse sympathy for his opponent. Let us have fair play. When it co.nes to hair-splitting distinc tions on the subject of tarifl, the states 53en and politicians of Iowa can furnish all the pros and cons that apply to any phase of thatltbeme. The Kassons's, the the Dolliver's, ^ind^iost ^f at Chicago is.the natural outcome of ra other national* authorities on tarlfi taliatory- duties levied by some of the xame^from Iowa! The tarifl is the nkt- countries of Europe. It strives to say in its headlines what it lacks the hardihood to say editorially and prints as its news item of second impor tance a clipping which might perhaps merit reprinting in its columns of news paper comment, but nothing more. Just RETALIATORY DUTIES. The Reciprocity Convention which met i.Russia people, and Wte flatter many have shown their disapproval of bout' American protective tarifl, and have sought jjy jrijldjfiMv* course Ae flatl gVbc hat wejknow^sometbing and Ger- compel "k tied and adjusted here and there to suit the changing requirements of maximum vo'ume of business but there is not the slightest probability of this country ever a opting the free trade plan of doing bus .ss. Russia is one of the countries which have sought to coerce the Unites States into a more philantrhopic trade policy. centlythat country has mani'ested a dispositionjto relent in its hostile attitude against this country in that respect. She is willing to withdraw the retaliatory duties on American machinery, etc., •which are not liable to become an import ant commercial factor. Negotiations looking to more agreeable trade relations between the United States and Russia are now in progress, and is it is expected that that they may be con c'uded in time to be announced at the psace conference at Portsmouth, when the envoys shall have concluded their duties connected with the war in the east. The approval of M. Witte is considered im portant, and this may delay the consum ma ion of any treaties along the line of irifi agreements. However Russia, as II as China and Germany have arrived at the conclusion that hostility, commer al or political, toward the Uuited States operates to their own disadvantage more eriouslv than it can embarass this coun try, and no serious doubts are entertained as to the final outcome of the negotiations .vith Ru&ia. THE PEACE TREATY. The conclusion of peace negotiations at Portsmouth between Russian and Japat: se envoys entrusted with HUETTMAN BROS., Open September 15 II Complete New Stock, Strictly One Price, *i "The Hub" Corner. ihts duty was lappy as it was expected in the character if the terms agreed upon The obstinacy md pride of Ru sia, the defeated country ontrasts strongly with the magnanimity of Japan, the nation that has overwhelm ingly triumphed in the struggle np to this time. Japan stood out for what she re rded as a reasonable indemnity for the oss of life and property in this war which the inju-tice and encroachments of Russia rendered necessary, and only yielded vhen sati fied that Russia's obduracy and (ear of reaction at home prevented hei from accepting the terms laid down. Japan's conduct in this connection is clothed with a punctilio which not only fleets creditably upon the good sense of hat Island empire, but reveals a diplo matic shrewdness and acumen which the apparent victory of the Russian envoys innot obscure, at least not permanently Russian peacecomn -ioners disp'aj 1 diplomatic genius, unless stubbornness be classed as such. Japan could ha-, bsen equally stubborn, had she chosen such a course, and she would have fared oetter under such proceedure than Russia could possibly have done. But with fine appreciation of the courtesies that may be tendered by a victor she has shown an example of international amenity that well comports with the fine sense of chiv airy and humanity that lends a charm to the traditions of Japan. The impertinence and impudence exhib ited by Russia in the negotiations between China and Jap?n at the close of the war •etween those countries, and the injustice and orazenne-j of her subsequent activity in eastern Asia, could only result in the resentment and resistance of Japan, or any other country so located, if that country possessed an iota of pride Rus sia's humiliation is well merited retri bution. The w~ld is not decei- ed as to t' etent r,f her punishment because of the magnanimity of Japan in the negotiation of peace terms. War is a deplorable thing, and humanity looks longingly for ward to a hoped for time when it shall cease to exist but so long as nations are controlled by greed for territory, and blinded to right, it must be admitted that war seems justifiable.
