Senator Bristow's discussion of the
causes of high prices helps to prevent
the mistake of attributing the entire
situation to some one cause. His rad
ical tariff reduction views and his
opposition to trusts are not enough to
lead the Kansas man into the error of
blaming the tariff and the trusts with
all or nearly all the rise.
He thinks the packing combine is
responsible for a larger share of the
cost of meat than is shortage of pro
duction. He thinks the tariff keeps
the price of sugar and clothing too
high. He blames the railroads with
using their power to cause excessive
shipping, as where live stock is ship
ped from the west to eastern packers to
be Jratchered and then shipped back
for retailing. But he recognizes also
that increased demand, due to a rising
standard of living, has something to do
with prices.
He might have added that human
nature itself seems bent on looking
after the producer to the neglect of
the consumer, a habit which makes
prices as prone to fly upward as sparks.
Each producer, as experience in con
gress shows, is willing to have a high
tariff on the things he buys on condi
tion of having one on the thing he
sells. Labor invites tariffs, under
standing that they raise somewhat the
cost of living, on the theory that higher
wages ensue. And so it runs every
where, income and not outgo being the
measure of satisfaction.
The senator who held that the con
sumer is a myth was nearer right
than his critics admitted. As an
active social and political force the
consumer is, or at least has been, just
about that. State Journal.
- "Ignorance of the law is no excuse,"
is an old legal maxim. Everybody is
bound to know the law, yet nobody
does and nobody can. There is too
much of it for the memory to hold
more than the smallest fraction of it.
The greatest lawyers do not carry the
law in their heads. It is sufficient for
their purpose to known where to find
Mr. Elliott Flower has been moved
to take a census of the law of the coun
try, and he publishes bis finding in the
Pittsburg Dispatch. He reports 16,
000 live laws, legal rules and regula
tions, which people are bound to obey
or suffer more or lees unpleasant con
sequences. There are according to his
count, more than 5,000 federal statu-
'tea, and on an average more than
6,000 separate state laws, ignorance of
wuicu excuses 00 man.
It Is an old complaint that we have
too much legislation, but the burden
is increased many fold by the necessity
of noting also the construction which
the courts have put on these laws.
These decisions, boxing every point of
the compress on every legal principle,
fill many thousand volumes, but they
are als the law. Philadelphia Press.
The American people need to have
more respect for the law, sagely re
marks the chief Police Commissioner
of the city of St Louis, relative to the
recent outbreak of crime in the Mis
souri metropolis.
True, but what the American peo
ple need most is to be taught to respect
the law by being punished when they
break the law. Abstract ideas of res
pect for the law as a great moral
engine count for but little with a large
part of our population. One man in
the penitentiary is often worth more
than a thousand lectures upon the
beauty of law observance.
It is often said that it is much easier
to enforce a law in Great Britain and
upon the continent of Europe than in
this country, because the people of the
older countries respect the law more.
It would be more proper to say that
they ftaf the law more. If a man
'breaks the law in England, the odds
an about 50 to 1 that he is punished,
and punished promptly. Punishment
is frequently a great aid ia making the
law respected. Louisville Pott.

publican Club of the city of Lincoln,
State of Nebraska, fully appreciated
the true devotion and-loyality to the
veterans of the civil war, and soldiers
of the Spanish-American war, and the
honorable and fiuthral 'services'rend
ered our city, state and nation, by our
distinguished citizen and statesman,
Honorable Elmer J. Burkett, our seni
or United States senator.
Be it resolved That by his untir
ing' industry and great legislative
ability, he has been able to lead the
way and direct in securing legislation
for the people until today he stands in
the forefront among the greatest pro
gressive leaders and legislators in the
And as evidence we have but to re
call a few things he has accomplished
for Nebraska since he first entered
Senator Burkett has secured the
passage of over one hundred special
pension bills for Nebraska soldiers and
their widows. Altogether he has se
cured over 3,800 pensions, original and
increase, and reissue, for deserving
Nebraska veterans and their widows
and children.
He has had appropriated for the
post office at Lincoln $350,000 and
negotiated a proposition whereby the
city of Lincoln is in possession of one
of the finest city halls and grounds in
the west.
Postoffice at Plattsmouth, $50,000.
Increase, post office grounds at Ne
braska City, $10,000.
Fremont postoffice, $50,000.
Beatrice postoffice and other post
office building, $50,000.
Missouri River improvements at
NebraskalCity and Bulo, $250,000.
Complete county service rural free
delivery for his entire district when in
the lower house, the first one completed
in the United States.
Secured legislation permitting In
dians in Richardson county to co-operate
in drainage proposition.
Divided Nebraska into divisions
for federal court purposes, establish
ing federal courts at Lincoln, Norfolk,
North Platte, McCook, Hastings and
Grand Island.
Was appointed a member of the ap
propriation committee in the house in
his second term, and is now a mem
ber of the senate appropriations com
mittee the most important commit
tee in congress.
After a long hard fight, saved six
congressmen to Nebraska in the re
apportionment bill of 1901 and is the
author of the bill by which members
of congress are now apportioned to the
several states.
He is the author of the public graz
ing bill.
Author and ardent supporter of a
bill to provide ior postal savings bank
and author of a bill to teach agricul
ture in normal schools.
Senator Burkett's speech upon the
irrigation.bill was a significant one, so
much so that Guy E. Mitchell, presi
dent of the national irrigation associa
tion, sent it broadcast over the coun
try. When in the house he saved the
government a million dollars by a sin
gle speech which was dubbed "The
million dollar speech" because it led to
the redrafting of the census bill on a
more economical basis.
He secured the passage through the
senate of bills for the drainage of the
Omaha and Winnebago lands in Ne
He had passed through the senate a
bill giving the court of claims jurisdic
tion over the claims of the Omaha
Indians against the government.
He has been a constant advocate of
more liberal pension laws.
He was the organizer of a movement
to secure a more equitable distribution
of committee assignments in the sen
ate, and his resolution was named as
an epoch making one by the press last
During the tariff session he secured
the reduction of the duty on barbed
wire from $54 to $15 per ton.
He secured an amendment to the
corporation tax law under which -the
following organizations are to be ex
empt from such taxation: labor organ
izations, fraternal beneficiary societies;
orders or associations operating under
the lodge system and providing life,
sick, accident or other benefits to its
members; and building and loan
He secured the free admission of the
paraphernalia of fraternal societies
and organizations of a similar charac
ter and has won tacit recognition as a
champion of institutions of this nature.
He secured the free admission of im
ported breeding animals.
He secured the establishment of the
dismal forest reserve in Nebraska.
He has secured the establishment of
rural free delivery routes ia nearly
every county in the state.
He has twice secured the passaga of
a bill to establish a fish culture station
in Nebraska.
He has secured an appropriation for
the reconstruction of Fort Crook when
it was destroyed by cyclone, the bill
passing the day after the storm which
destroyed the buildings.
Has now a bill in congress asking
for an appropriation of $650,000 to en
large our present postoffice building in
the city of Lincoln.
But one of his )atestand greatest
achievements was in securing through
the postoffice and United States treas
ury department, the designation of our
city as a distributing point for the
storage and redistribution of govern
ment postoffice supplies for a large
western territory.
The great importance of this ar
rangement cannot be overestimated
and it but helps to demonstrate that by
his alertness and energy he has justly
earned for himself a second term.
And all these things, coupled with
high moral character, and recognized
integrity have combined to make him
a worthy representative of this great
and growing state, and as fellow citi
zens we feel to know that we have in
him a becoming pride, and he it further
Resolved: That as members of the
Union Veteran Republican Club, hav
ing confidence in the wisdom, integrity
and patriotism of Senator Burkett, and
believing that his past experience has
qualified him for yet greater services
to bis city and state, we pledge mm
our hearty support."
Investigations by the postoffice de
partment show that the average haul
of newspapers is 291 miles, of maga
zines 1,049 and of miscellaneous peri
odicals 1,128. The cost of handling
this matter under second class rates is
a trifle more than 9 cents a pound.
rjust what proportion of this is paid on
the average to railroads does not
appear, but presumably the transpor
tation charge absorbs the larger share.
The significance of this appears
when the mail charges are compared
with those of passenger service on rail
roads. The distance between Kansas
City and St. Louis is approximately
that of the average haul of newspapers
by the postoffice. A 200 pound pas
senger is hauled it. a comfortable chair
car from Kansas City to St. Louis for
$7. If two-thirds of the cost of second
class mail is to be charged to trans
portation, a 200-pound mail sack
would pay $12 for the same haul.
Even on the long haul of magazines
there is a curious condition. A ticket
from New York to Chicago may be
purchased for $18, which is at the rate
of 9 cents a pound for the 200-pound
The Star pays express companies a
half a cent a pound to transport its
papers to agents. Presumably the
express companies find the rate profit
able. Why should it cost the govern
ment eighteen times as much, even
though its machinery for delivery
must be increased to handle the second
class matter?
Possibly the amount of the postal
deficit might be saved by making bet
ter contracts with railroads for the
transportation of mail. Kansas City
It is an unusual spectacle to have
the president of the United States sit
ting in judgment to determine the
equities between manufacturers of
whisky. But that is what President
Taft has just done and it was a unique
function to him to perform.
The pure food law made it necessary
for somebody to rule between the dif
ferent kinds of whisky and to say
what kind should have the advantage
of being designated as whisky. It
seemed that the law compelled a choice
and when such choice or designation
was made it would be to the exclusion
of others. The manufacturers of so
called straight whisky, produced by
aging in barrels the inside of which
are charred, claimed exclusive right to
use the name of whisky. This meant
that those who blended brands or rec
tified by the use of coloring matter
and introduction of water could not
employ the term. And this meant
monopoly for the straight whisky peo
ple and bankruptcy for the others.
Government authorities shirked re
sponsibilities in the matter of deter
mining the case. Chemists were call
ed in and these disagreed. It came
up to President Roosevelt and he pass
ed it on to his beloved successor.
Thus President Taft sat as a judge up
on the case. It must have been to
him a revival of old times to inspect
evidence and weigh testimony. His
judical experience stood him in good
stead. And his decision is likely to
be accepted as final and as good sense
and substantial justice. He has ruled
in effect that the charcoal-aged whisky
is not the only whisky, for whisky was
made and christened long before dis
tellers began charring their barrels;
that blended whisky may be so brand
ed and that rectified whisky may cer
tify to its identity by the use of such a
name all, in other 'words, employing
the word whisky but with suitable
We may disagree as to the best
methods of putting down the whisky
traffic bat we laymen, at any rate must
all agree that the president gave a
common sense decision in this cele
brated case.
Whisky is whisky, that's all Fre

One of the taos attractire essays tsst
John J. Iogalls ever wrote was on "Blue
Grass," printed years ago in the old
Canaan Magazine, It baa the distinctive
characteristic of his styfeta lighter vein.
The article follows: -; -
Attracted by the bland softness otaa
afternoon in my primeval winter in Kan
sas, I rode southward through the den
se forest tbat then covered the bluffs of
the north fork of Wildcat. The ground
was sodden with the oose of melted
snow. The dripping trees were as mo
tionless as granite. The last year's
tenacious lingerers, loath to leave the
scene of their brief bravery, adhered to
the gray boughs like fragile brooze.
There were no visible indies tioos of life,'
but the broad, wintry landscape-was
flooded with that indescribable splendor
that never waa on sea or shore a purple
and silken softness that half veiled, half
disclosed, the alien horizon, the vast
onrvea of the remote river, tbe transient
architecture of'the clouds, and Oiled the
responsive soul with a vague tumult of
emotion, pensive and pathetic, in which
regret and nope contended for the mas
tery. The dead and silent globe, with
all its hidden kingdoms, seemed swim
ming like a babble, suspended in an
ethereal solution of amethyst and silver,
compounded of tbe exbalrag whiteness of
the snow, descending glory of the sky.
A, tropical atmosphere brooded upon an
Arctic acece, creating tbe strange spec
tacle of summer in winter, June in Jan
nary, peculiar to Kansas, which unseen
cannot be imagined, but oncet seen can
never be forgotten. A sudden -descent
into the sheltered valley revealed an un
expected crescent in dazzling verdure,
glittering like a meadow ia early spring
unreal as an incantation, surprising as
the sea to tbe soldiers of Xenophon as
they stood upon the 'shore and shoutt-d
"Thalattal" It was blue graso, unknown
in Eden, the final- triumph Of Nature,
reserved to compensate her favorite off
spring in the new Paradise of? Kansas
for the loss of the old upon the banks
of the Tigris and Euphrates.
Next in importance fo the divine-profusion
of water, light rid air,1 -those
three great physical facta which render
existence possible, may be reckoned the
universal beneficence of-, grass. Exag
erated by tropioal heats and vapors to
tbe gigantic cane congested with its sac
charine secretion, or dwarfed by polar
regions to the fibrous hair of Northern
solitudes, embracing between these ex
tremes the maize with its resolute pen
nons, tbe rice plant of Southern nwam pa
the wheat, rye, barley, oats and other
cereals, no less than the humbler verdure
of hillside, pasture and prairie in the
temperate zone, grass is the most widely
distributed of all vegetable beings, and
is at once a type of our life and the em
blem of our mortality. Lying in the
sunhine among tbe butteroups and
dandelions of May, scarcely higher in. in
telligence than tbe minute tenants of
that mimic wilderness, our earliest re
collections are of grass; and when the
fitful fever is ended and the foolish wran
gle of the market and forum is closed,
grass heals over the scar which our de
cent into the bosom of the earth has
made and the carpet of the infant 'be
comes the blanket of the dead.
Grass is the forgiveness of Nature
her constant benediotion. Field
trampled with battle, saturated with'
blood, torn with the rush of qsnoon,
grow green again with grass, and earn
age ia forgotten. Streets abandoned by
traffic become grass, grown like rurd
lanes, and are obliterated. Forests de
cay, harvests perish, flowers vanish, but
grass is immortal. Beleaguered by the
seven hosts of winter, it withdraws into
the impregnable fortress of its subter
ranean vitality and emerges upon tbe
first solicitation of spring Sown by tbe
winds, by wandering birds, propagated
by the subtle horticulture of the elera
enta which are its ministers are servants
it softens the nude outline of the world.
Its tenacious fibers hold the earth in it
place, and prevent its soluble compon
ents from washing into tbe wasting sea
It invades tbe solitude of deserts, climb
tbe inaccessible slopes and forbidding
pinnacles of mountains, modifies cli
mates and determines tbe history, char
acter and destiny of nations Umb
atruotiveand patient, it has immortal
vigor and aggression. Banished from
tbe thoroughfare and the field, its time
to return, and when vigilance is relaxed,
or the dynasty has perished, it slightly
resumes tbe throne from which it has
expelled, but which it never abdicates.
It bears no blazonry of bloom toobarm
the senses with fragrance or splendor,
but its homely hue is more enchanting
than tbe lily or rose. It yields no fruit
in earth or air, and yet should its harvest
fail for a single year, famine would de
populate the world.
One grass differs from another grass
in glory. One is vulgar and another
patrician. There are grades in its vege
table nobility. Some varieties are use
ful. Some are beautiful. Others com

courtesy the unproductive. It is

all contributed to induce a socal disord

Is alreadypereeptible. Tbeintroduction
of metals in domestio and agricultual

Mr. Edison probably has had more of
