At a recent session of the Industrial commission ,1. A. Brliitrlinm , assistant secretary of agriculture , voiced an opin ion , ns an expert witness , before that Ixidy which should not pass without notice. Mrleily , Mr. Hrlnghatn said that the settlement of the west has been lee rapid , that the agricultural products of that section are greater than'the de- iniinil , and that Immigration to It should be rnher ( discouraged than encouraged. That the settlement of ( lie wesft has been tlu > most remarkable achievement In ( ho history of the country Is Indis putably 1rne. An empire larger ( linn tliu most nmhitlous dreams of world conquerors of old has been reclaimed from the wilderness , desert places have been made to blossom ns the rose , the blessings of civilization with Its attend ant consequences of education , religion and material conditions for the better ment of man have nil been encompassed in little more than a generation. Would the world , would the west , bo boiler if the process had been slower ? There is no reason to think so. If its phenomenal " development were founded upon so- called boom conditions -there might he some reason to doubt ( his elllcaey and wisdom of such progress. I5ut such is not the case. The boom , lo a certain extent , has been a factor and not al together a deleterious one , in the de velopment of the west , lint in the main It lias been most solid and substantial. Two causes have accoun'ted ' for It. Ad vantages In the ivixh iml. dunnl MSP- where and the display of energy and enterprise without a parallel in the world's history. Hut as much as has been accomplished we have only begun , and Instead of requiring a period of cessation the reverse Is actually the case. The products of the west , enor mous ns they are , are not in excess of the deinnnd and will not lie In years , if ever. The countries of Kuropc arc buy- lug more meats and brendstutTs from us now than ever before anil the Indica tions are that tlieso markets will each year increase. ] 5ut new markets are being established throughout the world , which for generations 'to come will re quire every dollar's worth of the sur plus product that the west can produce. Souih America alone could be made a customer for half the grain produced In the United States , and the possibili ties arc not so great In that country as In the Orient. The population nC the west is sparse , millions of acres of land arc ready to yield abundant harvests to skillful husbandry , and 'there Is a market and a profitable ono for every thing Hint the farmer can produce , in view of these facts , there Is no necessity for diminution of immigration. We need more people and will continue to do so until every arable acre of land Is under cultivation , and until that time our energies should bo directed to en couraging instead of discouraging farmers to settle In the west. JIKXl'K T11KSK TllAIiS. In knocking out the Ilonlumn police commission and turning down the bogus claimant to the mayorship of Omaha the supreme court struck the "gnng" a fatal body blow. The lucrative business of the well known linn of Molse , Ilerdman and Ilitehuall' , which for years has sub sisted on blackmail and voluntary con tributions from protected gamblers and lawless resorts , lias been broken up and their political domination in Omaha and Douglas county Is foredoomed. This ex plains the vicious onslaught of the gang organ on the supreme court and its clamor for 'the ' abolition of 'the supreme court commission. The gang dies hard , and revenge is sweet even in death. Tile hypocritical howl over supreme court nepotism Is the wall of the political street walker that puts on airs of virtue. The fact that Hear relatives of the judges have been on the state pay roll as clerks , placarded as startling disclo sures , hns been public property for years and years. This species of nepotism originated years before the present judges bad taken ( heir places on the bench , it was an Inheritance Irom the ourt presided over by Judge Maxwell uid has continued ever since. From the eform standpoint It is doubtless Im- iroper , if not absolutely wrong , but It was not disclosed and denounced by the reform organ until 'the ' court had com- nlttcd the unpardonable offense. Hence these tears. JS TIIK UI'KX 1)1)011 The British Associated Chambers of Commerce adopted a resolution urging the government to maintain the open leer In China. This would seem to im ply that the policy Is believed by the commercial Interests of England to be threatened. That there Is a feeling In Kugland that the open-door policy Is not absolutely secure Is shown in the views of some of the London correspondents of American newspapers. Ono of those very recently wrote that ( lie policy seems doomed. He salil that Itnssla , France , and in the future , If not today , Germany , are against it. There is no doubt , Ktntcd this correspondent , that Knglnml is supporting Italy's demand for a naval base , a railway ami other commercial concessions , although what Italy nsks for Is la the very heart of the region popularly supposed to bo within the peculiar British sphere of In- llueiice. Far from being an open door , ho said , tills is beyond question the by- ginning of a policy of partition , in which eacli country will take what It can and ultimately enforce upon its own terri tory such prohibitive tariff arrange ments as It prefers. In the Italian Chamber of Deputies on Tuesday the minister of foreign affair , in a statement regarding Italy's actl-ui In China , said that government had ob tained the approval of Great Hrltnln and Japan before asking the concession at San Mun and that other friendly powers bad acquiesced. These powers , it Is pre sumed , are lUtssla ami Germany , though possibly the decision of the 1'nlted States government to observe "disinter ested neutrality" may bo regarded by Italy as In effect acquiescence. It was also stated by the Italian minister ot' foreign affairs that Great Urltaln had advised against the use of force and promised Its diplomatic support to Italy nt the court of I'ckln. There is no doubt , therefore , that England Is behind thr efl'ort of the Italian government to se > cure concessions In China ami It ap pears lo be assured , also , that it Is the Intention of Italy lo press Its demnnd on diplomatic lines , there being no Justlll- cation , as the prime minister stated , for resorting to violence , 'the effect of which might be to disturb the International equilibrium In the far east. It is thus made plain that the move on the part of Italy was inspired and Unit that government Is merely the Instru ment of Great Hrltnln so far as China is concerned. If Italy obtains the con cession she seeks it will be duo wholly lo Hrltlsli Influence and It is needless lo say that In that event Hrltlsh influence would dictate the jwllcy of Italy In China. There would be practically. If not actually , an alliance between the two nations , with Japan In full accord. Now It is hardly possible that Grout Hrltaln would counsel any other policy than that of the open door. That nation Is so Strongly cnmmlttcd to the policy and Its maintenance Is so essential to her commercial Interests In China that It Is scarcely conceivable she will do anything Inimical to the policy. Al though the Italian minister said nothing about a policy , It Is reasonable lo as sume that Hrltlsh support was not given without , a clear understanding that the Hrltlsh policy should be observed. From this point of view the conclusion must bo that the effort of Italy lo obtain concessions from China involves no men ace to the open door , but rather contem plates the extension and strengthening of Hint policy. Mil. CAXXOX'S MISTAKE. In his speech in the house of repre sentatives on the closing day of the last congress Mr. Cannon , chairman of the committee on appropriations , said In defending the * action of the house In defeating the Nicaragua canal proposi tions of the senate Hint "if the senate bill or any measure proposed had been enacted , the United Stales would have paid ? r > ,000,000 for a worthless conces sion and would have been commuted by law to the construction of a canal along the Nicaragua route. " This statement has caused some resentment on the part of senate supporters , one of whom , Senator Frye , has taken 'the trouble to point out Mr. Cannon's misla ke. The Maine senator correctly states that the senate canal bill provided for the appointment by the president of ap praisers to value any property purchased and -the amount to lie paid for any such property was limited to $ . " ,000,000. It Should le ) slated , however , that 'the original bill difl propose to pay the Maritime canal company $5,000,000 for its concession and property , but so vigor ous was the opposition to this that the measure was amended in the form stated by Senator Fryc. In regard to the canal amendment to the river and harbor bill by the senate , Mr. Frye is also correct in saying 'that ' there was not a word about ti.o payment of $5,000- 000 for any purpose , that amendment , authorizing the president to acquire such portion of territory belonging to Costa Ulea and Nicaragua , or such rights or privileges therein or connected therewith , as may bo necessary to con struct and control a canal. This did not involve paying anything for any concession , but its effect -would have been to commit the United States to the construction oC a canal along the Nicaragua route , regardless of 'the ' claims 'to ' consideration of any other route. It must be admitted that the state ment of Mr. Cannon is incorrect , but the facts remain that the senale was disposed to vote $5,000,000 for conces sions which Senator Frye now declares lie does not believe worth anything , that it was driven from this.position by the knowledge that the house would not agree to pay 'the ' Maritime canal com pany a cent and that it Ilnally en deavored lo commit the government to the construction of the Nicaragua canal. The nerioii of the house in the matter undoubtedly 1ms 'the ' approval of public opinion. The authority given iho presi dent to appoint a commission of engi neers to make a full and complete in vestigation of the Isthmus , with n view t'o ' the future construction of a canal across the same , particularly the Panama and Nicaragua routes , will give congress and 'the ' country clearer information regarding the feasibility of tlie different routes and no reasonable man will question the de sirability of obtaining such information. The supporters of the Nicaragua- canal project insist that it Is 'the only one worthy of consideration , while there are able engineers who claim superiority for the Panama route. The question will lie determined , probably Ilnally , by the commission to be appointed by Ihe presi dent. UOVKHA'OH t'Ul'XTKIt'S VKTU. Governor Poyuter'H veto of the bill re establishing the supreme court commis sion Is a serious mistake. Without im pugning the motives that prompted this action we doubt its wisdom and cannot concur In ills conclusions. The governor asserts that the supreme court commis sion was created as a makeshift to help out the supreme court until the people themselves could reinforce the court by electing additional Judges , but the fact that amendments to the constitution proposing nu Increase In the number of supreme Judges have twice failed to re ceive the necessary majority of all the votes cast nt 'the ' general election at which they were submitted is in- terpreled as an expression by the peuplo against an increase of the supreme court. This is decidedly illogical. The failure of the supreme court amend ments was not due to popular opposition to n ho increase in the number of su preme Judges , but to conditions that make it almost Impossible to secure ratllicatlon for any amendment to the constitution , however much needed. It seems passing strange 'that ' a popu list governor should seek to justify a veto of the supreme court commission bill 011 tlie ground of popular aversion to an Increase of the supreme court in the light of the , very recent attempt of his predecessor and a fusion legislature to "count In" an amendment to the con stUutlon making an incrcnM ! In thu num ber of supreme court Judges. The governor's criticism of the supreme premo court as a body inferior lit calibre to the supreme courU of otliei states IM In oxrcedlnely bad laMe If not entirely out of place. Tlie governor represents a co-ordinate branch of gov- eiMiient nml Is therefore not In position to assail its standing or belittle Its mem bers. The assertion that Hie public service does not deinnnd the services of the commission Is baseless. We make bold to assert that the public service and the people who have Htlgatlin In the su preme court would suffer seriously by the abolition of the commission. The assertion that the commission was use less Is moreover flatly contradicted by the governor himself. Loss than ton days ngo he proposed to approve a su preme court commission bill , so framed ns to allow each judge uf the court to name one commissioner. At this distance from Lincoln it would seem that the governor hns funned his veto message to meet the clamor of short-sighted partisans who desire to cripple the su- lireme court even if tlie public Is the chief sufferer by such a course. General Pando , the head of the Hollv- Ian revolution , has proposed to Presi dent Alonzo that botli of them surrender their arms lo one Hellssnrltis Hoots nml call an assembly to settle the question as lo which one of them shall benevo lently nsslmllnlo the country. If Presi dent Alonzo knows a good tiling when he sees It lie will lose no time In ac cepting the offer , but as the custodian of the arms will naturally feel It bin duty to benevolently assimilate them as soon as a purchaser can lie found , the Indications are that Colonel Hoots will soon Hud himself clear up to Ihe straps In clover. The president went south for the pur pose of rest and succeeded in eluding the men who desired to occupy his time and attention.
