While the legislatures of some west
ern states were lu Be union and deeply
t-n grossed in the work of considering
laws designed to regulate railroad
rates, officials of the big railway com
panies became active and emphatic In
circulating statements to the effect that
their roads were going to abandon all
Improvements because of enacted or
pending state legislation Inimical to
their Interests. This cue was taken up
promptly by Wall street and the local
threats magnified into a statement., "on
the highest possible authority," that
the railroad companies of the country
had about agreed to abandon all im
provements until after the next elec
tion, because of tha attitude of Presi
dent Roosevelt and "the desire Of the
railroad managers to see him dis
credited as the Tiertd Of the republican
These threats lose their terrors In
the face of facts touching the orders of
the railway companies with the steel
factories and the builders of railway
equipment. The first quarterly report
of the steel corporation for tht three
months ending with March shows that
the steel plants have simply refused to
accept any more orders for steel rails
for delivery earlier than December.
Every plant Is working on full twenty
four hours a day scheduled and the
bookings show that the output of this
essential feature of railway Improve
ment for the year will be a record
breaker. Dig orders for rails are
booked for several southwestern roads
and the roads in the northwest have
requisitions filed for an Immense
quantity of rails necessary for new
lines and the Improvement of the old
oneu. Vp to date, . according to the
official report of the steel company, no
railroad has cancelled an order for
rails or other building equipment.
The manufacturers of railway rolling
stock make a similar report. While
they admit that thoy are not receiving
many new orders, they stato, also, that
the plants of the companies are sched
uled ahead as far ns September and
that consequently new orders could not
receive anywhere near immediate at
tention. The American Car company,
for example, has orders for 80.000 cars
and all Its plants will have to be oper
ated at full capacity until September
or later to handle this large business.
The American locomotive company's
output is larger than ever before in
the company's history, but it will not
accept new orders for several months,
as It3 capacity Is taxed to the utmost
on work for urgent orders.
Every railroad in the country has
moe profitable business offered than
it can handle and any attempt to aban
don Improvements or limit equipment
simply would mean the rejection of
good American dollars and the rail
roads never have acquired the habit
of doing that. The bluff about cur
tailment of expenses and the' abandon
ment of improvements was made for
effect on the players In the political
and not those In the business game.
EXPERT H JKD KiCTS.
Developments In the Thaw trial fur
nish ample evidence that the "expert"
witness business in this country is
being worked overtime and to poor
purpose. Specialists have added much
to the advancement of medical science
and knowledge In other professions,
but It Is going to take the general
public some time to get over the habit
of laughing or sneering over claims
and assertions of experts in lunacy.
Admitting the narrow, almost In
definable line of demarcation between
sanity and Insanity, the layman will
Insist on having some better authority
than an alienist's opinion as to whether
a man is on one or the other side of
this line. Only one conclusion, brutal
as it may seem, will be drawn by the
average citizen from the development
of the Investigation Into Thaw's mental
condition, and that is that either the
expert alienist will testify for either
side for a fee or that his conclusions
are mere guess work.
In the Thaw trial the district attor
ney produced about a dozen of the
most eminent alienists In the nation,
who all agreed, by a different course
of reasoning, that Thaw is Insane. The
defense promptly offered another dozen
of equally expert alienists who were
equally positive that TJhaw Is in posses
sion of his sound mental faculties.
Under such circumstances, the average
man who has a notion that he Is not
Insane will be inclined to exclaim "A
plague on both your houses."

While it Is important that Omaha
should develop Its manufacturing In
dustries In all possible directions,
there are two openings immediately
available more than ordinarily prom
ising. Omaha ought to become a
great center of flouring and cereal
mills, and It ought also to become a
city of a great leather and leather
For the establishment of profitable
flouring and cereal mills the conditions
in Omaha are not to be excelled any
where not even in Mlnne i)olis,
which has come to be known as the
Flour city. Nebraska has within the
past few years forged to the front as
a wheat-growing state and Is ralbing
wheat not only in abundant quantity,
but in superior quality as well. The
grain market in Omaha is ateadlly
rowing, but the larger part of the
transactions are tales of grain in
transit, which after going through the
local elevators here Is distributed to
astern markets without being first
transformed Into the manufactured
product. Much winter wheat grown
in Nebraska goes to Minneapolis di
rect or by way of Omaha, and It is
said that the Minneapolis flour makers
use more Nebraska wheat In their high
grade flours than wheat grown In their
own state. The successful operation
of a large number of smaller flouring
mills throughout Nebraska Is assur
ance that one or more large mills tak
ing advantage of wholesale methods
of purchasing raw materials and dis
tributing the products would be even
In the matter of making leather and
leather goods Omaha has the raw
hides right at Its door in South Omaha
as one of the byproducts of the great
meat-parking Industry there. These
hides are now shipped east to points
even more diRtant from the source of
tan-bark than is Omaha, and after cur
ing and manufacturing are sent back
to our own territory In the form of
boots and shoes, harness, valines, etc.
A successful tannery at Omaha would
be quickly followed by more shoe fac
tories, harness works, glove factories
and bag factories that would give
steady employment to hundreds, If not
thousands, of well paid operatives.
These two promising fields should
have the first and unremitting atten
tion of those who are charged with
developing the manufacturing side of
Omaha. Roth of them ought to be
occupied In part, at least, before an
other year rolls nronnd.
OIT t'OU NATlnSAL COSVEXTIOSS.
The campaign fortho location of the
national conventions of the two big
poiitkal parties for next year has al
ready been started, Chicago, Kansas
City, St. Louis aud Seattle having an
nounced their intention to present their
claims to one or both of the national
committees, which will meet in Decem
ber to Bele't the places and fix the
dates. This will leave seven months in
which these and other citlas may se
cure the desired publicity by urging
their clulma for the location of tho
conventions. Incidentally, it will fur
nish opportunity for political promoters
to koeip themselves In the spotlight
(luring the dull months of an off year.
According to present indications, the
selection of the meeting places for next
year'B national convention will not be
decided by elements that have often
influenced the choice In former yearB.
With party lines closely drawn and the
numerical strength of parties about
even, the selection of a place for hold
ing a nattonaJ convention has fre
quently been a matter of shrewd po
litical management and a question of
political policy. This condition does
not now exist and the committees in
selecting places for holding the' con
ventions will have only the comfort
of the delegates, accessibility of the
cities chosen and the convention hall
and hotel facilities to consider. This
leaves Seattle out of the reckoning at
once. Desirable as the selection of that
city might be from other standpoints,
the transportation problem ince the
free pass law is in force makes it im
probable that Seattle's claims will net
any reward other than publicity.
Without desiring or attempting to
discourage other cities that have en
tered or may enter into the competi
tion for the conventions, The Bee feels
free to say that Chicago will appeal
to people in this section as the logical
place for the conventions of both par
ties. That city's hotel, convention hall,
telegraph and railway facilities are su
perior to those of any other applicant
and the- city has no rival in the point
of accessibility. The selection of Chi
cago would make the traveling ex
penses of the delegates fairly uniform,
an item that must be taken into con
sideration by the national committees.
While the Chicago climate in June is
not the- finest in the world, It is much
preferable to that of either St. Louis
or Kansas City, the only other western
cities that can offer any reasonable
bids for the conventions. It is certain
that If the question were left, to the
delegates, after they have been chosen,
the decision would be in Chicago's
A DEADLY SOCIAL FEUD.
The .Rooeevelt-Harrlman -controversy,
the Thaw trial, peace confer
ence speculation, news of presidential
booms and like insignificant matters
will have to take to the back pages
for a time while the spot light Is
turned on Chevy Chase in the District
of Columbia, where a problem is being
fought out, the solution of which
promises to affect both the national
and international social fabrics. Perry
Belmont, socially and financially re
lated to the other Belmonts, the Van
derbilts, the Sloanes, the Astors, the
Martins and all the swell 400, a mem
ber of the most exclusive clubs in
America and Europe has been denied
membership in the Chevy Chase club.
It is formally announced that "all
sorts of social and poltlcal complica
tions are likely to result from this oc
currence." The blackballing of Mr. Belmont Is
the culmination of a series of difficul
ties that have faced the Belmonts since
their attempt to break Into Washing
ton society several years ago. They
brought with them from New York the
live embers of a social feud which had
split up a certain section of high so
ciety there and resulted In the mar
riage of Perry Belmont to Mrs. Sloane
and his brother, OUIe Belmont, to one
of the Vanderbllts. Just at the time
the Perry Belmonts located In Wash
ington the agitation asatnst the mar
riage of divorcees was at its height and
Washington society clutched its skirts
at the approach of tho newcomers.
With money to burn, skilled in the art
of entertaining and filled with a desire
to remove the social barriers, the Bel
monts started their campaign and suc
ceeded in getting right Into the ante
room of social royalty. Triumph ap
peared close at hand when the Bel
monts occupied seats of honor at a
White House luncheon, even though
an effort was made to prevent the
publication of the list of guests at the
function. One door after another of
the fashionable homes on Dupont Cir
cle and Massachusetts avenue were
opened to the Belmonts and the path
to the realization of their social ambi
tions seemed to be broadening and
getting smoother, only to end abruptly
In a nasty hurdle at the entrance to
the grounds of the Chevy Chase club.
Many and conflicting stories are be
ing told In Washington and New York
as to the rejection of the Belmonts
and the real facts are hard to obtain,
but It Is certain that Mr. Belmont has
begun his campaign of retaliation.
Already he has landed one victim.
Major General Wallace F. Randolph,
U. 8. A., Is a member of the board of
governors of the Chevy Chase club av.d
Is credited with having led the opposi
tion against Belmont's admission. At
the Metropolitan club the other night
Belmont and General Randolph were
brought face to face. The guests held
their breaths and awaited the explo
sion. It came. Looking the major
general of the United States army
squarely in the eye, Belmont courage
ously addressed him as "Mr. Ran
dolph," completely ignoring his title,
then turned on his heel and left the
room. Of course, after that there can
be no compromi.-e. no cessation of hos
tilities, until somebody Involved in the
dreadful affair gets a slap on the wrist.
The suggestion that the anti-pass
bill which has Just gone into effect in
Nebraska is lame because it does not
specifically prohibit evasion by the
sale of tickets at nominal prices will
prove to be Illusory. It Is true that
nothing prevents the railroads putting
In cut rates and special rates for any
particular class of passengers, but
they cannot give special rates to par
ticular favorites because that would
be discrimination of the most flagrant
kind. Tho railroads will have to
treat alike all passengers who are In
the same category, and If they make
a nominal rate for one it will have to
be open for every passenger similarly
Pituated. It is a safe guess that no
Nebraska railroad will try to get
around the antl-pasn law by any such
It Is perhaps too much to expect a
legislative body to make arrangements
tor clerical help 'In the same way that
a business establishment would. If
a private concern were to have a rush
of work such as 'that which over
whelms the enrolling rooms during
the closing days of each legislative
session It would increase its capacity
by employing more help. The legis
lature, however, .retains all the com
mittee clerks on the 'payroll up to the
end, notwithstanding ' the fact that
their usefulness has ceased, while the
clerks In the enrolling room, who had
nothing to do at the start, are unable
to keep up with the demands upon
them in the final hours. A little more
equalization would accomplish better
results. r -
To the charge that both political
parties have in the past employed the
same methods In gathering campaign
funds the World-Herald enters a plea
for the democratic party of "poor, but
honest." So long as Tom Taggart Is
at the head of the national committee
that plea will be ruled out as "incom
petent, irrelevant and immaterial."
Members of the new Nebraska State
Railway commission will have to walk
the straight and narrow path. The
slightest side-stepping will bump them
hard against the iron-clad oath of
office to which each has been com
pelled to subscribe.

haps It would not be too much to aay that
It haa done more than all of Its predeces

whteh specifically promised the performance

Albion News: To the Legislature Well
done, good and faithful servants. Tou
have represented the people In a much
larger degree than any other legislature
that ever oonvened In Nebraska, This Is
speaJUng collootlvely. There haa been
some deplorable exceptions which will
have due consideration by the people In
the future. The so-called "fake reform
er?" have proved that they wete not
fakers, hut genuine reformers. The con
structive lopieilatlon of tho present session
Is of more practical value to the peP's
of the state than that of the last twenty
years combined. For the first time since
the organization of the state the rail
roads have not been the controlling fac
tor In legislation. The people have at last
assumed control of the state, and It is
not to be Imagined that they will ever
again relense their hold on Its manage
ment. With the passholders obliterated,
with the direct primary In force. It will
be comparatively easy for the people to
rule the state.
Ord Quli: No Nebraska legislature has
ever cleaned up Its work as well aa the
one just now closing up shop. It started
In with some well denned work laid out for
It by the republican convention and It set
out to do It In a painstaking and plodding
manner. Everything that the republican
platform demanded has been done. For a
while It looked as though the legislature
would do. nothing more than redeem Its
pledges, but It did In reality do a great
deal more. In marked contrast with the
legislature of two years ago, which was
probably the worst we ever had, the legis
lature of 1907 stands out as a model for all
future legislatures. The question naturally
arises, why Is thlsT The answer Is easy:
Disgusted by the work of the legislature
of 19o5 the people took the work of electing
officers seriously this time and elected good
men and told them plainly what to do.
The people started this work right, begin
ning at the primaries and following the
party work up to the state convention,
and to eleotlon day. The natural result was
that good men were elected. From this
happy experience the people of Nebraska
ought to learn that It pays mighty well
to attend to one's political duties.
Friend Telegraph: The legislature of
this state, which adjourned yesterday
noon, has come a little nearer being of and
by the people than any other similar body
which has convened In the state. Of
course, the railroads have been hard hit,
but not In a manner that will seriously
cripple them or their business. The people
arc demanding that the railroads doing
business In this state attend strictly to
their business as common carriers, that
they quit attempting to run 'the politics,
watering stocks In order not to uncover the
real earnings, that they oeaae an attempt
to control the price by not being able to
furnlvh cara to the loas of every shipper
along their lines. There haa been nothing
In these railroad legislations which haa
not been brought on by the corporations
themselves and for which they themselves
are sorely to blame. It requires all of us
together to constitute the great state of
Nebraska and when the railroads so con
sider themselves as merely one little part
of thla great state, engaged In the business
as common carriers and servants of the
people, there will be no further adverse
legislation. In the deliberations of the
present legislature these corporations have
had a little Inkling of what the people
are whenever they choose ' to take the
power into their own hands. It Is not
meant at this time that the people should
lax back Into the old rut and allow things
to go on as before the uprising, but remem
bering always that "Eternal vigilance Is the
price of liberty."
Jamaa J. Hill, who Is probably the
most experienced and successful builder
of railroads In the country, strongly in
dorses the movement of the Roosevelt
administration In appointing a waterways
commission with a view to the improve
ment of livers and construction of oanals.
He says such action should have been
taken twenty years ago, and adds: "If
the government would Improve Its water
ways and extract from them one-fifth of
their latent possibilities the freight
handling problem would apeedlly be
nearer solution than the railways them
selves can ever hope to bring It."

THE ROOSEVELT KNOCKERS.
Pertlaeat Remarks on "Fire Alarm"
Foraker and His Kind.
Kansas City Btar.
There Is strong reason for the assumption
that many of the special privilege class of
business promoters would rather precipitate
an era of Bryanlsm In politics and de
pression In Industry than to accord their
methods with the Roosevelt policies and so
keep prosperity swinging along smoothly In
the square deal way. Representing this
clans -In politics. Senator Foraker of Ohio
is an example, with bis reckless disregard
of ascertained public sentiment.
The reasoning clearly apparent In such
a preference is this, that after a period of
panio or "hard times" the people would
grow tired of agitation and In their eager
ness to again have factories running and
to have full employment they would elect
a reactionary president and affairs would
fall back to the old level of "short run"
profits and Industrial abuses against which
Mr. Roosevelt haa already made such head
way. This Idea accords mighty well with that
sort of greedy cunning which distinguishes
the bulk of privilege grabbers. In practice
It has already had some precedent, as every
attempt to put the protective tariff on a
fair and rational basis has been met, not
with an honest test of Its practicality, but
with a thoroughly dislnganinus cessation
of business In certain line and with stock
panics designed solely to bluff the people

Rut this more desperate political pro
gramIf It Is a program has two ob
viously fatal weaknesses. First, even If
It could succeed and the Roosevelt ad
ministration could be "rebuked" by the
succession of a radical period, there is
no certainty that the confusion could In
stilled at will and the people tamely turn
to a different set of oppressors as their
deliverers. Fire sometimes gets beyond
The second weakness In the progrum :
Is this: It does not lie with the Forakers '
In business and politics to lry out des
tiny for this nation. The people se the
danger In unreasoning radicalism quite
as woll as the "Interests" see the hope In
It. They sre not going to try the ex
periment of sotting out fire which might
spread beyond control. And, as they will
not submit to special privilege either, the
Intent Is to brush the Forakers aside and
control tha republican party for a con
tinuation of Roosevelt's square deal.
