The lice prints In another column an lutereating communication from a well known wholesale liunlier denier lit which he makea the Inirenlotm plea that rail, road trauHportattnii Is nothing tint th Biile of toumige tm the part of o ahlpper, and thnt the Rhlpper should be entitled to get the loweHt rate on Ida gale of ton huge that ft competitive .market will af ford. From hia viewpoint the granting and accepting of rebatea la nothing more than the varlnble Iddding of the rallroada for the tonnage idilppera have to cell. If the acceptance of rel ate la a crime, he nrguea. the aelllng of tonnage in n erinie, and If nelllug of tonnage la a crime the aelling of all merebnndiao at a profit la a crime. And the auggeatlou la offered that the law auould make It permissible for transportation lines to lower their rateo, but not to ralae them bo aa to pro duce "a healthy competition.'' Thia appeals to us a a modern re finement of the old contention that the rallroiui la n private corporation, con ducting Its business for Its own profit, and that tin government bis no more right to prescribe regulations for run ning a railroad than It has for running n dry goods atore. All thnt was neces sity to be done, so we used to be told, wits to let the railroads tilone and the railroad managers would operate them lMMieflccntly with a view to the greatest good to the greatest number eonalstent with the fnttest dividends on their watered stock. Put few Intelligent railroad men would today hold to this let-alone doc trine. The necessity of government su pervision to Insure safety of travel and traffic and to prevent discrimination be tween persons and places Is generally conceded. Few railroad men venture to defend rebates, but, on the contrary, they admit their destructive tendency and often urge the legalizing of pooling as the surest way to terminate the re lmte evil. The Idea that transportation Is noth ing but the sale of tonnage overlooks the real character of the railroad ns n common carrier and the privileges en joyed of eminent domain and other franchise rights acquired without price and capitalized for millions of dollars. As a compion carrier the railroad Is In duty 'bound to treat nil patrons alike. It haa no more right to buy the tonnage of one shipper at a less or greater price than the same tonnage of like classifica tion of another shipper than the post office hna to carry the letters of one busi ness establishment for half the postage exacted on the letters of a competing business establishment. If freight transportation Is merely tonnage for sale then passenger trans portation, niust also be tonnage for sale and the passenger contemplating n trip by rail should ask for bids from the various railroads to see which will carry him cheapest. If, as Is urged, the value of tonnage is thoroughly understood by every business firm In the United States and la regularly used to extort special favors from the railroads, then a strict anti-rebate law should be welcomed by the railroads as an ld to them In with standing the pressure of the tonnage sellers. More than that, they ought to welcome legislation that will vest In some public body the authority to sny whethar a rate in excessive or not and to substitute a reasonable rate, and thus put an end to the tendency of their own rate-makers to cut under established schedulea under duress. It Is to be noted, however, that the railroad spokesman and publicity bu reaus are all opposed to any legislation thnt will Interfere with their unlimited license to make rates its they please. The statement emanating from Tarls that a movement haa been started in the Kuropenn chancelleries looking to the formation of a new alignment of the European powers is altogether credible. It was pointed out before the close of the war In the far east that however the conflict should end changes in the political relations of the powers was Inevitable. It was seen that the ex. lstlng order could not be perpetuated, that a certain effect of the war would te to create circumstances and condi tions which could only be met by a political readjustment which should em brace all the leading lowers. Obviously the old arrangements have lost their significance and force. The triple alliance lias become for all practi cal purposes of no consequence. The Franco-Kusslan compact la manifestly of no value to the parties to it. The overshadowing facta in tho situation are that Great Britain and Jupan have uni ted to preserve pence lu eastern Asia and protect their mutual interests in that quarter of the world, and that tJroat Hvltain tind France, after gener ations of hostility, are now in un al liance which not simply makes them friends, but Is un assurance of security to each against aggression on the part of other European powers. The practically isolated powers of Europe at present are Russia and Ger many. Neither has a really substautlal and valuable alliance. The pact be tween France and Russia is scarcely worth the paper upon which It Is writ ten. The Uermnu allinuce with Austria and Italy is not very much if any bet ter. The controlling force lu European affairs at this time is Great Britain and that power is hardly less otent in Oriental affairs. Quite naturully. there fore, both Germany and Russia are man ifesting a very earnest desire to culti vate friendly relations with Great Britain and also to be on the best of terms with each other. It is au espe cially notable fact lu the situation that Germany seems anxious to be on the most friendly terms with France. What the outcome will 1k of this gen eral tendency toward a rapprochement of the powers cannot l? confidently pre dicted, but there can be do chmht that the immediate effect Is to strengthen the cnauces of ieace being maintained Till OMAHA for an Indefinite time, with the possibil ity that the powers ibay be Induced to seriously consider a mutual agreement for the reduction of armaments. It Is now generally understood thst there will be another pence conference and one of the matters which will perhaps be con sidered by It Is that of cutting down armaments, whldi could le done under a general system of pncihV alliances. Ko far as the I'nited States Is concerned. It hss an interest In the projected realignment of the European powers only sa It may contribute to the main tenance of the world's pence, for which American Influence has been earnestly exerted. More than ever iM'fore In Its history this country stands for Interna tional peace, and while It will enter Into no alliances It will heartily welcome and approve alliances between other no tions Uiat are In the Interest of Inter national peace. THK WWSE SH(JV On the eve of Its second annual Horse Show Omaha looks forward to the event with great expectations born of the fine success scored by the first Omnba Horse Show Inst year. When It comes to tine horses and fine equipage, and to lovers of fine horses, Omaha will take rank above any other city of Its sire In the country. Thnt much was demonstrated by the Horse Show last year, and while Omaha horsemen and horsewomen have still to learn in the matter of Horse Show horsemanship they have made notable progress In the short time that the Horse Show enthusiasm has had hold of them. The HorRe Show should le an event in local business and social circles second only to the Ak-Snr-Ben carnival, and It would be If every one concerned would Interest himself In the proper spirit. Tho brunt of the burden of promoting the Horse Show, like the brunt of the bur den of carrying on Ak-Snr-Ben, devolves upon n few devoted citizens who will assume the responsibility of manage ment. They have this year responded In a reasonable degree to the demand that the show should be made more popular and brought within reach of all Admirers of the horse. If the protests raised last year ngnlnst too strict excluslveness were well grounded, this deference to public sentiment should receive a suit able recognition. The only way to keep Omaha on the Horse Show circuit is to make tho Omaha Horse Show n success. COXTROL OF THE VASAL, It Is somewhat strange that there should have been any question as to who was to assume final control of Tanama canal affairs, but It will le en tirely satisfactory to tho country to know that they are to remain In the lm:ds of Secretary Taft, as has been decided by the cabinet. Whclher or not It Is the proper function of the bend of the Wnv department, rather than of the secretary of state, to look after the bushings of the construction of a water way which Is distinctly International In chnracter is manifestly o debatable question, Doubtless the general opinion would be that It properly belongs to the department which has control of our in ternational affairs. Still the canal is In a wny a military proposition and therefore not Improperly n matter out side the consideration and care of the mllltnry department of the government. That Secretary Taft should desire to unburden himself of the task of looking after the complicated affairs of the building of the Tanama rnnal can be enslly understood. He hna nlready de volved upon him duties which nre some whnt onerous. But after all these nre less exnctlng than the president of the T'nlted States hns to enre for t and there Is no good reason why n member of tiio enMnet should not tnke his full share of the enres and responsibilities of the pd mlnlstrntlon. Secretary Tnft Is a very nble man. He ha shown great idmln Istrntlve talent and the country hns Im plicit confidence In his ability to man age tho affairs of tho Tanama canil. It Is a project the troublesome chnracter of which la only leginulnff to lie readi.ed and the man who carries It to success will win Immortal honor. That Is airae thing which no American statesman hould be nnwill'nff tn -Mvo for. TVBEtiCVLOSlS AXD JflJC SAVAKTS Two cures for consumption are being considered by the International Tuber culosis congress in session at Paris, Tiof. Maruiorek of the Tasteur lustltute has been telling the aavants o the good results of his serum treatment. Trof. Behring will present to the congress an altogether new cure for consumption. It would be a boon, indeed. If the doctors could find a specific for the terrible white death, more fatal to the human race thau yellow fever or plague, but there seems little hope that such a specific will soon be found. Any number of alleged serum cures have been exploited, but none thus far has realised expectations. The dlfll culty aeema to be In the very nature of the disease. Irs roots' strike deep In the soil of civilization. Tuberculosis seems more or less a result of the conditions under which the modern human lives. Man has lost sight of the fact that be la essentially an outdoor animal. He needs fresh air and freedom If he would have good health. The ozone of the air la the only effective nerve food. After sedentary occupations and unsanitary living have weakened the human organ ism then the germ of tuberculosis finds vHtbln It a fertile soil. Ouly uuder most exceptional conditions can this germ at tack successfully the strong and healthy who live under sanitary condition's. Any effective remedy for tuberculosis, then, must of necessity Involve a change In the modes of living. Surroundings must be sanitary. The life-giving oxygen must W taken In full measure. There must be free outdoor life. And whea these conditions are abaudoned the dis ease la likely to return. Savants have taught us much la the DAILY BEE: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1905. control of tuberculosis. Their serum may aid In the successful treatment of the disease, but It goes without saying that the chance of finding a specific which will conquer the white death In Its own habitat Is highly remote, to say the least. This plngue of plagues can le met only by making conditions of life hostile to Its development. fiuht ran WhE FvoD vaw. There Is to be another contest at the coming session of congress for a pure food Inw, with the promise that It will be more marly successful than In the hist congress. This more favorable out. look Is due to the fact that the investi gations of the chief chemist of the De pal tment of Agriculture in Europe hns shown him that a great many articles which are exported to this country from alnoad are by no means pure, but on the contrary are ao adulterated tint they enn properly be excluded under our lews and ought to be. ITjo exnnilnntlons which Dr. Wiley, chief of the bureau of chemistry of the Agricultural department, was able to make In Europe were of a nature that cannot fall to have an effect upon con gress when the question of pure loud regulation Is again presented to thnt Itody. Very little haa 3-et leen disclosed lu regard to the discoveries of Dr. Wiley, yet sufficient has been sad upon bis authority to establish the fact that the American market Is being made Ihe dumping ground of a lot of Europe. iu goods that are absolutely excluded from the countries In which they nre manu factured and which are In till -respects Inferior to similar products In our own country. According to Dr. Wiley a very large proportion of the foreign Importa tion nre absolutely of a character that should not be admitted iuto our mar kets, for the reason that they are not pu"e and consequently are fraudulent; While some of these Imjiorts may not be absolutely Injurious to health llicy nre to all Intents and purposes a swindle upon the people. This question of pure food regulation !s becoming more and more of com manding Interest with the public. American manufacturers of food prod ucts have taken a very positive posi tion in favor of legislation requiring thnt all foods shall be adjudged pure and whnt they ask In regard to the do mestic products they will certainly de mapd In respect to those which nre Im ported. The subject Is one In which all the people are very directly Inter ested and as to which there Is a nearly unanimous opinion in favor of congres sional action to promote the pure food cause. In view of the recent jail break of five prisoners out of the Douglas county bastlle aud the subsequent dismissal of the Jailer in charge, it Is worthy of note that the turnkey of the jail in La Crosse county, Wisconsin, has Just been con victed of assisting In the escape of two notorious post office robbers and sen tenced to a term of imprisonment for fifteen months. In this case the evi dence showed that the turnkey had ro od ved $KiO for his contribution to the release of the two prisoners. The endorsement by uie national con vention of wholesalo druggists of Tresl dent Roosevelt's plan for railway rale regulation points to one class of ship pers with Independence enough to resist the pressure of the railway freight traf fic managers. There Is no doubt but that j shippers ns a rule would line up with the president If they were free to ex press themselves without fear of retalia tion on the part of the railroads. The Tort hind exposition is llng counted a financial success because It promises to return to the stock sub scribers a part of the money they hnve advanced. While giving due credit to the managers of the Tort land show we have a right to emphasize the 1M per cent refund ou stock In the Omaha ex position as fixing a high water mark not likely to be approached, much less Improved.

National prosperity is refleoted In tae big gains rhade In postal receipts and In the rapid expansion now ocoiirlng in the postal service. Advance figures from the post master genrrRl's report for 1M4-'0S Indicate that In spite of tho recent vast extension of the rural free delivery system the Post office department's earning capacity is steadily Increasing. The postal revenues for lIM-'Ow wre greater by JlO.oOO.Onn than those for H3-04, and outside the rural branch of the service receipts now balance experdlturos. The money order business for 19fH-'Pfi reached a volume of Jl.dVl.liOO.OOrt a goln of 30 per rent and 0,0no,(io more Stamps, stamped wrappers and postal cards were used last year thn In inM-'04. Wore it not for the deflrt entailed by rural free delivery the department could at present more than pay Its way, and within the next five of ten yenrs might be In a posi tion to reeommend to congress some ma terial reductions In postal rates. It Is evident, however, that tho rural delivery hns come to stay, and that the expense of extending It must be faced In any calculations for the future. The Initial vest of establishing pew country routes will continue to be a serious drain on postal revenues. Yet the necessity of this extension Is beyond question. As a sneuns of education and of national development the rursl free delivery experiment has already proved Its worth, and as the sys tem grows It will become more nearly self-supporting. Indirectly it benefits trade by bringing the country Into asy com munication with the town snd city, and It does a further public service by Increasing enlightenment, comfort and contentment In the rural districts. The cities are per haps paying a little more than their present proportion per capita of the cost pf the postal service; but the country's gain Is their gnln also, and .they will cheerfully contribute to maintain and extend the rural service until a new balance betwoen re ceipts and expenditures can be struck and both city and country pan share in a gen eral decrease In postal charges, . AMERICAN NAME TARNISHED. Scandals In lllsth Plaees Make Honest Men Dinah, Minneapolis Journal. In his address of welcome at the one hundred and fifty-second opening of Colum bia university. President Nicholas Murray Butler took occatlon to point out the forci ble Illustrations now being afforded the rising generation of the difference between reputation and charocter. The American people are receiving some painful lessons In practical ethics, as President Butler says, and of late we have been watching reputations "melt away like snow before the sun." President Uutler had In mind, of course, the Insurance scandals. There has. Indeed, been matter brought to llfht to make an honest man blush. Hamilton W. Mable. another American, whose patriotism and cleanliness of thought none will deny, even though he may not rank as a financier, has Just returned from Europe. Current scandals In commercial life, he says, are the talk of the hour In Europe and It Is a matter of shame to any American to hear his countrymen re ferred to as swindlers and sharpers. Mr. Mable fears that our business prospects and the respect In which our financiers have heretofore been held have been changed. Today In Eng'and, Germany and France the American, when finance Is discussed, must be prepared to meet the faint smile and iult sneer of contempt. This is a penalty we have to pay for the wrong-doing of tho big men of the American money world, who have long abused confidence reposed In them and managed thtlr trusts for their own profits rather than for the benefits of the people they represented. It will not do, however, to take a too hopeless view of this situation. America has no monopoly of crookedness In finance. It is true that it Is hard to recall a time when In foreign affairs so many names of prominence were besmirched as ln the present New York disclosures, but England hss had its Hooleys of recent date, and as for France, It Is the last one entitled to set up as critic. Principally, however, the saving feature Is American public opinion. No man ran for a moment doubt that the people of our country are right. If men who have sat In high places must fall, if family names long honored must have the stain of thievery put on them. If reputations must be punctured through and through with graft and deceit. It Is better It should all come at once. And it must be noted that public opinion Is not In favor ot sparing any one, but clamors rather for full exposition of all the Iniquity and the throwing out of the grafters and thieves.
