that he will not reveal the identity of

whisper the nam Into Colonel Bryan's
ear any time Colonel Bryan wants to
tear it. We can see from here that
Colonel Watterson will be compelled
to keep his secret until after the dem
Mwatlo national convention.
TO MAKE SVBt OF FAILURE.
Colonel Bryan's Commoner outlines
a program for dealing with the rail
roads to innke sure of failure of the
regulation laws passed by congress
and the various state legislatures. It
declares for Mr. Bryan that, while he
believes public ownership offers the
ultimate solution of the problem, those
who, with him, believe the public will
finally in self-defense be driven to
ownership recognize that regulation
must be tried under the most favora
ble circumstances before the masses
will bo ready to try a more radical
remedy. Mr. Bryan has, himself,
stated repeatedly in other places that
he Is convinced legislative and admin
istrative regulation of railroads can
not be made effective.
The democratic proposal, therefore,
amounts to this: Put the democrats
in control of the national and state
government and let them conduct the
experiment of railroad regulation un
til they prove that they can give no
satisfactory relief and then come to
public ownership as the last resort
and only remaining alternative. While
the experiment Is In progress and the
people are being convinced that regu
lation does not regulate, the democrats
would occupy the panoply of power
and enjoy the patronage and spoils.
In a word, the republican program Is
to try regulation with a view to scor
ing a success, while the democratic
program la to try regulation with de
liberate design to Insure its failure.
ANOTHER RAILROAD REFORM.
Another sti iking illustration of good
results that would follow co-operation
between government authorities and
transportation companies is furnished
by the practical perfection of a uni
form bill of lading for use on all the
railroads of the country. The form of
the bill has been prepared by the in
terstate Commerce commission, aided
by representatives of the shippers and
of the traffic departments of several
leading railways of the country, and
a date has been fixed In the early
autumn for considering objections to
the form. Unless objections, if any
are filed, are of the convincing kind,
the form will be adopted and the uni
form bill of lading will be prescribed
for all railroad companies, removing
one of the most prolific sources of
complaint, trouble and litigation be
tween transportation companies and
their patrons
The significant feature of the new
proposition is that It promises to give
to the shippers and the bankers of
the country a concession they have
been vainly seeking for years. There
has long been an earnest demand for
a bill of lading that could be used as
security for bank loans and bills
galore looking to that end have been
Introduced in congress, only to die in
the committee rooms, killed by the
objections of railroad companies.
What congress failed to accomplish
the transportation companies and their
patrons now promise to do by mutual
agreement under pressure of the In
terstate Commerce commission. The
new bill of lading covers the question
of deliveries of goods and the negotia
bility of the bills of lading, and, at
the same time, accepts the principle
of responsibility of carriers, so far as
property shipped is carried on their
own lines. Certain conditions, printed
on the backs of the uniform bills,
form a part of the contract and are
designed to protect fully the Interests
of the shipper and leave little room
for dispute or litigation where goods
are lost, damaged or destroyed in
transit.
The new measure, while not wholly
satisfactory, has met the approval of
a committee of the American Bank
ers' association, representatives of the
leading railways, representatives of
the shippers and the officials of the
Interstate Commerce commission. The
mere promise that such a measure as
is proposed will be generally accepted
Is an Indication of a change for the
better In the relations between trans
portation companies, shippers and the
bankers, the three elements that have
leading roles In the Industrial drama
of the nation.
A'O MISFITS.
Candidates are filing their names
light along to get on the official pri
mary ballot for nomination to various
county or district offices at the pri
mary election to be held in September.
It Is the proud privilege of every
American citlien to aspire to public
office and it is the purpose and intent
of the primary election law to vest the
voters with the exclusive determina
tion as to which shall be favored.
There Is no law to prevent a hod car
rier from submitting his name for
nomination to the office of county
treasurer nor to prevent a man who
never paid a hundred dollars' worth
of taxes in his life from asking to be
commissioned by the people to assess
millions of dollars of real and personal
property for taxation.
An Ill-defined but none the less cer
tain rule prevails, however, Imposed
by mere practice and custom, that
candidates for office should have at
least measurable qualifications to per
form the duties of the position which
they seek. In other words, while the
doors are wide open for anybody and
everybody to have his namo printed
on the official primary ballot for al
most any office from top to bottom,
the voters may be confidently relied
on to draw the line at misfits.
All this 1b by way of generalisation
without reference to any particular
candidate for office already filed or
only "mentioned." But should the
Improprieties of the situation -become
acute at any place it may be necessary
later to point out definitely who are
absolutely disqualified in order that
the voters may pass judgment Intelligently.
1STERXATIUXAL TlLACRMAlt,.
General Horace Porter, head of the
United States delegation to the peace
conference at The Hague, Is entitled
to credit for compelling the delegates
to look one situation in the face, in
stead of spending all their time In
academic discussion of fine-spun theo
ries. General Porter's awakening ad
dress came with a presentation by him
of a modified form of the Drago doc
trine. The Drago doctrine Is a brief,
direct and simple proposition prohibit
ing the use of force In the collection
of International debts. General Por
ter, evidently with the sanction of
the authorities at Washington, pro
posed an amendment supporting the
Drago doctrine only in the case of
"contractual" obligations.
The interesting part of General Por
ter's' argument was his plain talk
about the experlene of nations In
the past in collecting debts on the
verdict of a Jury of 12-inch guns. He
showed that European nations had
blockaded South American and Cen
tral American ports and collected
claims padded several thousand per
cent, In order to cover the collection
charges. This he denounces as but a
form of international blackmail, more
contemptible than individual black
mall. He contended that a blockade
or any form of duress to collect a bill
from a debtor nation was as obnoxious
as Imprisonment of an Individual for
debt, now recognized generally as a
relic of barbarism.
While the United States offers no
objection to the use of force to collect
debts in those cases In which In
demnity could be rightfully or plausi
bly demanded, as for an internatlon'al
Injury or an international Insult,
It will not use the Monroe doc
trine to protect South or Central
American rulers, like Castro of
Venezuela, for Instance, who make
awards and promises apparently for
the sole purpose of defrauding Inter
national customers. The United States
refuses to extend Immunity to a pro
fessional national debtor. It simply
urges that "contractual obligations,"
agreements entered Into In good faith
by contracting parties, shall be settled
In-the courts and not by force. The
United States also urges, practically In
the form of a demand, that no force
be used until the creditor nation pre
sent proof that Its claim is Just and
reasonable and not padded by usurious
and fictitious claims, as has been too
often the case.
The American proposal provides for
an honest adjustment of claims be
tween nations and for preventing In
ternational blackmail. The proposi
tion see ma a long step In the rlght( di
rection, and neither the Latln-Ameri
can countries nor their foreign cred
itors can oppose It without suspicion
that they prefer to continue repudiat
ing honest obligations on the one
hand, or exacting blackmail by force
on the other.
The esteemed Kearney Hub Is la
boring under a complete misapprehen
sion as to the railway assessment In
Douglas county showing comparatively
little increase over that of a year ago.
It assumes that this evidences the fu
tility of the terminal tax law. In
point of fact the terminal tax law did
not become effective until this month
and was, therefore, not operative when
the assessment was made. The first
assessment under the terminal tax law
will come next year, unless the rail
roads succeed In carrying out their
threats to nullify it by the aid of the
federal courts.
A movement is just starting over In
Iowa for a county depository law that
will relieve the county treasurers of
responsibility in placing out the county
funds and also relieve them from po
litical obligations to the bankers who
try to Influence the selection Of county
treasurers. Nebraska has had a law
covering this subject for more than a
dozen years, but did not realize It was
so far ahead of Its neighbor on the
east. The idea that the disposition of
public funds is in any way a private
perquisite of a public officer cannot be
upheld.
Word comes from the state capital
that Omaha can have the annual en
campment of the Nebraska National
Guard If It will only provide the neces
sary camping ground. Our local mili
tary companies should take this up at
once with the promotion department
of the Commercial club and make sure
that the conditions are fulfilled.
One of the high financiers of the
democratlo city council has discovered
that the city can Issue bonds and pay
interest on them without letting It cost
the taxpayers a cent. This magician
ought to move right down to Wall
street without waiting a minute.
The report of the receipts and ex
penditures of the sheriff's office under
Sheriff McDonald for the year ending
last January has Just been filed six
months overdue. It must have taken
a lot of work to get the reports prop
erly fixed to cover up the graft
It Is said that there were thirteen
different kinds of booze on tap at the
Sabbath day plcnto of the Dahlman
democracy and that one or two of the
picnickers acquired thirteen different
kinds of Jags.
The regular annual alarm is being
sounded at the University of Nebraska
for the changes la the faculty due to
the acceptance of offers of higher sala
ries In other educational Institutions.
This is nothing new nor unusual. The
faculty of the university has been con
stantly changing ever since its start
sometimes for tho good of tho profes
sors and sometimes for the good of
the university.

points oar POLITICAL pmuosopiir
Crete Vidette-IIerald: To fuse or not to
fuse Is still the paramount Issue wltrf demo
cratic politicians of the state. The rank
and file of the party say, "Ignore principle,
subordinate everything to office getting,
fuse again with the fellows that have al
ways played us false If you want to, and
we will get In our work as usual at the
polls."
Beatrice Express: It Is formally an
nounced from Lincoln that populism which
has been a waning political organisation for
several years. Is now dead. Ten years ago
the populist party was strong In every sec
tion of Nebraska, and every man who car
ried the badge of leadership a luxurant
appendage of whiskers was deemed an in
dividual of considerable eminence. Since
then they have, one after another, with
few exceptions, cast off their badges of
distinction, and Joined the ranks of the two
old parties. Now there Is not enough left
of the once robust and flourishing populist
party to keep up an organization, and so It
passes from being, but not from memory.
Albion Argus (pop.): The question of fu
sion seems to worry the politicians consider
able. There was a meeting of pops and
dems held In Lincoln Tuesday, called to
gether by Chairman T. S. Allen. But this
aggregation didn't seem to know any more
than common people out In the country.
At least they arrived at no conclusion. The
fact Is fusion has served Its purpose. It Is
an awkward piece of business and always
was. The people don't worry their brains
much about It. The vote In Boone county
has shown this for several years. They are
just as liable to elect a repub and pop the
same year as any other way. The com
plexion at the court house at the present
time shows this. So with this state of af
fairs, what Is the use of trying to force
the fusion Issue down the people.
Columbus Tribune: We are rapidly ap
proaching the ace when men assert their
manhood and cease to cringe to the swing
of the party lash. Be we democrats, pop
ulists or republicans, we are all men desir
ing the best good for our country, our
state, our nation. While In many Instances
our opinions differ, as Is natural, yet a
"political party" Is worth to us Just In pro
portion aa to the good It dots and harms
us just In proportion to the bad It does. It
dors seem to us, that with the . present
flourishing prices paid for our products,
with the demand for labor and excellent
wages, that to disturb these conditions
would be fallacy. Let us stand together for
the greatest good to the greatest number
and do In political affairs exactly as we
would In personal, let good enough alone.
Fremont Tribune: The democratic state
central coiumitU-u defeated the plan to cull
a state convention by only two votes. At
the same time the committee declared Its
sincere desire to fairly test the primary
law. The truth Is a very large proportion
of the democratic leaders do not like tho
primary law. They wanted it so framed,
When the legislature enacted It, as to leave
the opportunity for voters of one party to
Impose candidates upon the other party, In J
which effort they failed. And now they are
further Incensed because the attorney gen
eral has decided that a candidate cannot
have his name printed on the ballot as the
candidate of two parties, for the obvious
reason that since In the primaries he muat
declare his party affiliation and that If he
claimed to be a democrat he oannot also

JUDGE WAITS FOR TESTIMONY
Monger Takes No Final Action In Case
of State and Express
Companies.
The case of the application for a tern
porary Injunction on the part of the five
express companies to restrain the Ne
braska State Railway commission and the
attorney general of the state from en
forcing the terms of the Sibley aot still
remains in statu quo In the United States
circuit court. Judge W. 11. Munger has
not yet granted the Injunction asked for.
Both parties are given leave to submit tes
timony in the matter and until this evi
dence is submitted to the court nothing
will be done.
Virtually two suits are pending In the
case, one In the federal court for the
Lincoln district, which has been trans
ferred from the state courts. This case
was brought by the state In the supreme
court to compel the enforcement of the
Sibley law. On the motion of the de
fendants, the express companies, this case
has been transferred to the federal court
at Lincoln for the purpose of testing the
constitutionality of the law.
In the case now pending In the circuit
court of the United States In Omaha the
application Is for an Injunction to restrain
the State Railway commission and attorney
general from enforcing the law. In the
arguments held before Judge W. H.
Munger Saturday the state held that aa
the matter was now pending upon the con
stitutionality of the Sibley law, there was
nothing to enjoin. Judge W. II. Munger
takes this same view In part and until
testimony Is produced showing that the
state Intends to enforce the law without
regard to the settlement of the question of
conaltutlonallty nothing remains for him to
do In the premises.
