The bulletin recently IssuM by "the
Department of Commerce end Lsbor,
showing the wholesale prices of com
modules for s period of ten years, is
Instructive snd Interesting. It sppenrs
thnt on nonrly all of the 2iS0 commodities
In the list the lowest price were
resent-d In 181)7, there having been
steady decline during the yesrs of de-
prenlon following tbe highly prosperous
year of 1802. From 1807 there was a
K'rutlunl tine In commodity rrtces, farm
products making the greatest advance,
This Is readily explained by the feet
that In these yenrs everybody waa em
p!oiel and therefore In a position to
consume more than In the preceding
yesrs, even though the sdvsnce tn
wages did not generally keep pace with
tne increase in the prices of commodi
ties. As the Wall street Journal says, the
groat difference between times of pros
perity and times of depression Is me
ured by the number of people who are
eninloye.1. In istxt and 1807 there wns
certainly a larger perceptsge of un
employed In the country than there wns
In 11)01 snd 1002, or even In 100.1. More
people were earolng average wages In
the Inlter three years. Thus there whs
n materially augmented consumption of
commodities and neeoauarily prices ad
vanced. The country had recovered
from the general and severe depression
that rime on in 180.1, when the farmer
and the manufacturer sold their jroi
nets ut a small profit and sometimes at
a loss, and naturally values, went up.
That is the Inevitable effect of good
times, vhen everybody bss work ard
money to spend. In the period of de
pression from 1803 to 1807 the supply
of commodities wss In excess of the
deinund, but since then demand and
supply have been about equalised nnd
producers bave been able to get better
prices for their products. Tha result
has been general prosperity.
The record of exports and Import of
gold ahows how it has been accumulat
ing in this country. With a production
ranging from $70.000,00fJ to 180,000,000
a year, we bave Imported more than we
have exported since 1806. In the three
yesrs following that date, according to
tbe New York Journal of Commerce,
thla excess wss fully $200,000,000. In
1000 there wss an excess of several mil
lions In exports and last yesr there was
a still smaller margin on that side, while
In the two Intermediate years over $15,-
000,000 more gold came Into the country
than went out In International transac
tions. The laat official statement puts
the s mount of gold in the monetary cir
culation of the country at the beginning
of this month at $1,120,000,000, 'sgalnst
$507,800,000 ten years before, indicating
thst the volume had just about doubled.
Considering the tendency of our com
modtty exports to fall off at the preaent
time, remarks jthe Journal of, Commerce,
It is not likely thst the heavy export of
gold, including the exceptional transfer
fof (to Padama-. payments, will be
nearly fnade up by this year by imports
in the later months. , While there Is
reason to expect an excess of exports,
it Is not probable thst this will approxl-
mate the addition made to tbe stock of
gold from our own mines. "We are In
a position to furnish gold to meet the
requirements of other countries. Ws
can spare it and we necessarily get a re
turn for it. Though the movement may
be temporarily disturbing at financial
centers, the effect Is mainly local and
will be temporary. If there Is no occa
sion for apprehension except the cur
rent movement of gold the prospect
must be regarded as -serene." There Is
not apparent any tendency toward dis
turbance at the financial centers, the
gold movement having produced no ap
prehension, while there is nq dlscern
able occasion In any other direction for
fear or want of confidence. With such
a stock of gold as the country possesses
and the general conditions favorable to
industrial activity, there seems to be
no good reason why we should not soon
hsve a complete recovery from the
slight depression of the past year.

With the military progress of Japan
European fear, real or fancied, of the
to-called "yellow peril" appears to grow
and there are pessimistic views as to
what may happen should Jspan be vic
torious and dominate Asia. It Is urged
that in that event there would possibly
be a coalition of China and Japan and
the creation of a vast military power
that would become a menace to the
western world a military power In
which Japan would exert a masterful
Influence snd us to promote the ambi
tions which she Is thought to cherish.
It Is said that Japan'a final aucceea In
the war would mean the control by that
power of the Asiatic trade, luevltablj
In her own Interest and aa far aa possi
ble to the exclusion of other nation.
One of the most serious snd conserva
tive of English papers, commenting upon
the recent successes of the. Jspanese.
takes the view that they mark an epoch
in modern history that ia grave tn char
acter and it apeara that thla reflect
the view of some prominent English
men, who are aald to retard Japan's
military advance with anxiety. It is
not surprising thst there exlata a feeling
of this kind In France snd Germany,
where sympathy la unmistakably with
Rula, but tt la not eay to understand
why it should be held by Englishmen,
slr.ee Great Britain and Japan are allies
and the latter country haa alwaya shown
a frieudly concern for British interests
tn the far east.
It is easy enough to tbeorls on a mat
ter of this kind, but It would be ex
tremely difficult to find sny substantial
ground or reason for this European
dread. Certainly there haa been nothing
In the conduct of Japan to auggest It.
In going to war that power declared
that Its sole purpoee was t roske more
secure the existence of the empire snd
maintain Its rightful Interest a It bad
In view no acquisition of territory snd
no change In Its relations toward other
nations with which Japan Is at peace
The most, eminent of Jspsnese state
men. Marquis Ito, recently said thst "In
fighting for our own interests we sre at
the ssme time fighting for the prtnclpl
of fair competition all around In these
new markets of the world." At no tlm
has Jspsn shown other, than a liberal
spirit In regard to the commercial Inter
ests In Asls of other countries. She
promptly and unreservedly acquiesced
In the position tsken by the United
States respecting those Interests snd it
Is not to be doubted thst she Is today In
hesrty sympsthy with the open door
principle, to which it is pretty well un
derstood Russia has never been really
favorable. Japan's success, It can con
fldently be asserted, would close no door
now open to the world's trade, while
there Is good reason to believe that Rus
slsn success would be destructive of tbe
principle of "fslr competition all
s round."
The notion thst If Jspsn should win
she would crests, In coalition with
Chins, a great military power which
would be a menace to the rest of the
world, seems hardly worthy of serious
consideration. There is no reason to
think that Japan has an ambition to be
a military power with conquest aa ber
purpose. She alms only to be prepsred
for self-protection and the safeguarding
of her Interests. As to China, no ra
tlonal person will suspect her of a desire
to become a military power. The fact
la that the "yellow peril" fear Is wholly
bsseless and unreasonable and will
trouble the mind of no one familiar with
the power and the resources of west
ern nations.
In the circular of deception prepared
and distributed by the dark lantern fac
tion of spurious reformers the attention
of republican voters Is called to the fact
that "tha name of II. C. Brome appears
on the printed official primary ballot
and he Is running agalnet Edward Rose-
water. The race between the two la a
stralght-away race and the high man re
ceives the vote of the delegation in the
state convention. Comment In this con
nectlon la unnecessary."
Just so. Comment may be superfluous,
but a few questions may not be lnap
proprlate or untimely.
IIow long has H. C. Brome lived in
Omaha? About twelve years. How long
has Edward Rosewater lived in Omaha?
More than forty years. What has Harry
C. Brome done for the upbuilding of
Omaha? Nothing that anybody Is aware
of. What has Edward Rosewater done
for the' up-bullding of Omaha? He has
not only expended hundreds of thou
sands of dollars for tbe erection of build
logs, but has contributed many thou
sands of dollars toward all Important
enterprises In which Omsha was vitally
concerned. Including the purchase of tbe
depot grounds for the Union Pacific, the
building of the Grand Central, now the
Paxton hotel, the Boyd opera bouse and
nearly every church and every hospital
In Omaha.
How much has H. C. Brome paid for
manual labor in Omaba? Not a dollar,
How much baa Edward Rosewater paid
for labor? More than $3,000,000 within
the last thirty years.
How much has H. C. Brome paid In
taxes state, county, school district and
city? Lesa than $10 a year. How much
has Edward Roaewa'ter paid In taxes?
Nearly $100,000 since be has lived In
How many of the delegates-at-large or
congressional delegates In the national
republican convention have ever beard
of H. C Brome, and what figure would
he cut In that great representative gath
ering as a delegate-at-large from the
state of Nebraska?
The circular of defamation that Is be
ing distributed broadcast among repub
lican voters of thla city Is as full of
slander as It Is of deception. Tbe main
issue la said to be "the purification of
politics and good govemmeht adminis
tered by clean, honest, untrammeled
public officials." v To accomplish this
commendable reform bonest and decent
republicans are urged to vote for a ticket
headed by a chronic office-holder, who
distinguished himself as deputy mar
shal, chiefly tn dragging hundreds of In
dians to Omaha just to make deputy
marshal's fees, and associated with A.
II. Donnecken. a former street commis
sioner who padded the city psy roll and
appropriated building material paid for
by the city to hla private use; Pete Burk
bouser, who established a reputation aa
a grafter while on the Board of Public
Works and Bosrd of Fire and Police
Commissioners; John II. Butler, who ran
with the machine aa city building In
spector; Simon Troetler, a former ma
chine councilman without a pull, and
half a doeen other patriots who bave

It Is refreshing to read in the litera

Those foolish .Thibetans seem to learn
nothing from experience. First they at
tacked the British "peaceful political mis

were put to rout. Next they Interfered
with his view of the surrounding country
by having a fort overlooking th place
where he hsd pitched his headquarters
and th fort waa reduced - with great
slaughter to the garrison. Lastly, the
Thibetans, 800 strong,' Attacked the "mis
