There is oonsolation, however, that boarding house keepers and waiters are still taking United 8 tat as money, Mr. Tift' Weitem Trip. According to Washington advices the unfortunate illness of Mrs. Taft threat ens to delay If not prevent the con templated trip of the. president to the west in August or September. Mr. Taft has explained to western senators that he has abandoned the Alaskan- visit, but still hopes to go to the Seattie ex position and make some stops en route. The entire west desires to see Mr. Taft and tie would he the gainer by contact with our people. Western rep resentatives should urge upon htm the Importance of adhering to former plans at least to the exttnt of going to Seattle and making the Intermediate stops. The west Is an unswerving sup porter of the president's progressive policies and personal contact would be a sustaining force to him and An In spiration to western people. The dally press tells of affairs at the nation's capital, but there is nothing like per sonal association to hold people to gether and spur then on to united ef fort. Presidential visits bridge the great distance to the White House and bring the government nearer to the people. The west wants to see Mr. Taft be caune It likes him and because he la the president of the nation and if Mrs. Taft recovers her health sufficiently U will urge to the point of Insistence that he come. Growth of the Southwest. Five million people In 1910" is the slogan of Texas. The census of 1900 gave the state slightly over 3,000,000 and to reach this goal means a phe nomenal growth, particularly when the greater portion of It is in the agri cultural sections. Texas is an empire within Itself and was largely over looked while settlers were pouring into Nebraska, Kansas, the Dakotaa and the northwest. The rush to Oklahoma carried the tide to the doors of Texas and has now swept on over that state. The Industrial movement to the older southern states Is making a new land n that section and the uplift has reached Texas in recent years. There were no freo public lands lu Texas and this doubtless kept out farm seekers until the freo homesteads n other states were exhausted. Land hunger, which has seized the people, -Is Texas' opportunity and Is being util ized to attract settlers. With an in crease of 2,000,K)0 people in ten years Texas will still have room for other millions and It is an encouraging sign that many w ho are going to help build up the state come from the north. It will tend to produce a more homo geneous, nation and wipe- out sectional differences. It would be a good thing for the country if some of the farmers who are going to Canada searching for cheaper farms could see the op- portunlties in their own land,' for we can ill afford to lose the class which is drifting across the border. Report on Tobacco Trust. The nrcliminarv report of the bureau of corporations on the Amer ican Tobacco company contains some interesting Information, but read be tween the lines. supports rumors which lead to the conclusion it does not tell all that the bureau has learned. The Information submitted to con gress discloses no ground for prosecu tlons under the anti-trust law, al though It la quite possible such facts may have been submitted to the De partment of Justice for verification and action. Investigation showB that the com pany controls three-fourths of the to bacco trade of the United States exclu sive of cigars, and possesses a power which might easily be abused. It is shown, for example, that the repeal of the war taxes on manufactured tobacco Increased the net profits of the com pany several million dollars, the gov ernment abating Us revenue and the consuming public being charged on the old basis. It repealing the war taxes served only to Increase the profits of the big tobacco company congress may turn that wav again for revenue to wipe out a treasury deficit. The most significant feature of the report Is the entire absence of .com ment on the metho-ls by which the company has secured such a command ing position in the tobacco trade. It treats slightly on the colossal capital isation, Indicating a belief that it is not all legitimate. If prosecutions are contemplated the features passed over would be pertinent, consequently color Is lent to rumors that the Department of Justice Is contemplating some move against the company. MacVeagh on Taft. Secretary of the Treasury Franklin MacVeagh set forth in clear terms at the Commercial club banquet in Chi cago the policy of the Taft adminlstra tion. He made it plain that the prin cipal difference between the Taft and Roosevelt administrations was of methods and not of principles. To quote his exact words, he said: Aa to the Roosevelt policies, they are aa safe in the hands of the present admin 1st ration as they were In the hands o tha last. The proiildent has hla own way of arriving at results. What Is more elg nif leant and Interesting at present Is not the 'actual noninterference. ' but rather the fine disposition the president shows to reenect all rUhli and to meet every body half way In' the hor& and intert-st of a homogeneous party of progress a disposition which can only be Interpreted aa statesmanlike conciliation, aod which It would be a fatal mistake to consldej aa a change of actual policy or purpose. . Announcing at the outset that he brought a message from the president, this utterance of Mr. MacVeagh should set all people right on the pol icy of the administration. Those who hoped to resort again to illegal prac tices against which Roosevelt con tended can blame no one but them selves IX they are hauled up with a sharp turn and those who Incline to be captious can spare themselves th trouble. It is an Impossibility for one of Mr. Kwotievelt's temperament to pro ceed along Taft lines and just as un natural for Mr. Taft to follow Roose velt methods. This does not preclude both having the same goal or argue that one method Is more effective man the other. What the public desires Is results and Mr. Taft has never yet failed In any great undertaking or turned back when once headed right. Confidence was expressed by Mr. Mao Veagh that revision of the tariff would be accomplished along satisfactory lines and his definition of "satisfac tory lines" is significant: The main point was to satisfy the middle west. The demand for tariff revision la not for radical and Impracticable re duction, because everybody understands that the republican party stands for pro tection. It Is talking against the wind to argue that the revision expected la not revision downward and it would be equally futile to say that the revision down was promised to be a revision down and out. The address of the secretary of the treasury is most reassuring to the friends of the administration, but con tains no comfort for its enemies. The Home Market. Omaha jobbers and manufacturers have been sending out periodical trade excursions to cultivate territory nat urally tributary and these excursions have invariably met with notable suc cess. Every addition to our trade ter ritory and every new customer within the territory means business expansion for Omaha and additional importance for the city as a manufacturing and Jobbing center. In a way these trade excursions have as their object the conquest of foreign markets, but while we should let noth ing escape In this competitive territory Omaha jobbers and manufacturers ought to have the advantage in the home market right here without fight ing for it. No city can be a commun ity unto itself, yet the retail trade of Omaha mounts far into the millions every year. The same reasons that urge our people to patronize our own retailers should be equally forceful with the retailers to handle and push home-made goods and deal as far as possible with home Jobbers. What we should have here in Omaha is a combined effort on the Dart of manufacturer, jobber and retailer to develop Omaha as a market town. While reaching out into outside mar kets we should also hold onto our home market. A Nestor of American Journalism, Another landmark of the older American Journalism has been re moved by the death of Colonel Alexan der K. McClure, for more than half a century prominent in our public life Colonel McClure began his newspaper career In an interior Pennsylvala town In the '40s and came to the forefront with the founding of the republican party, in which he played a not Insig nificant part. He was one of the first to recognize the commanding abilities of At :ihatn Lincoln and was an influ ential factor In procuring his nomina tion and election, remaining on confi dential terms with Lincoln as an ad viser during the period of the civil war. In the newspaper field Colonel Mc Clure was 'Identified chiefly with the Philadelphia Times, from which, how ever, he had retired In the last few years. At the time of his death he was enjoying the honorary though not ex acting office of prothonotary of the supreme court of Pennsylvania, a posi tion given him in Mb old age in recog nition of his long and notable public service. Colonel McClure found time to write several books of personal reml niscences, dealing chiefly with men and events of the civil war and reconstruc tion period, which will constitute val uable contributions to our political his tory. It must be consoling to his friends and admirers to know that he should have lived to the ripe old age of 81 years and saw the quiet follow the stress and storm of hla earlier years. The compelling factor In the contro versy between the mayor and council over appointments is supposed to lie in the fact that to protect Incumbents whose reappointments may not be con firmed Mayor "Jim" may have to stay tn Omaha constantly without indulging In out-of-town excursions that would take hlin away over a regular council meeting. Well, worse things than that cou'.d happen. According to Edgar Howard, there Is only one obstacle In the path of Mr, Bryan to the United States senate, and that obstacle is himself. On three successive occasions there has been only one obstacle in the path of Mr Dryan to the White House, and that obstacle was himself. And now we are told that "Omaha is not growing as it should notwithstand ing many think we are progressing very rapidly." Never mind, we'll have a census next year and take a popula tion inventory. Exact figures will be better than guesses or estimates. Why should Indianapolis get to the front ahead of Omaha as a starting point for balloon racing? Omaha has the plant and the geographical location for successful aeronautic trials and ought not to let its advantage go by the board. The Canadians are unduly alarmed because the gunbeat Nashville has been sent to Chicago. Canada should be careful and not acquire bo bad a case of nervous prostration aa the mother country. The Nebraska City Press asserts that It has nothing to take back in regard to iu charge that Omaha 1b a harbor for crooks, but It adds. "Omaha Is a good city as cities are judged, but they are corrupt Just as other cities are cor rupt." We presume the thing to do then is to wipe all cities off the map. Omaha apologises for existing. Four state universities hsve taken advantage of the Carnegie foundation, but Nebraska is not In the Hat. It will be so consoling to Nebraska pro fessors In their old age to know they will not be forced to accept any tainted money. A Des Moines woman who Is to un dergo a surgical operation wants to divorce first, so that sho may die free of matrimonial bonds in case the sur geon's knife is fatal. Is she afraid there Is no dlrorce court in the next world? Mercer county, Pennsylvania, has laid claim to the reward offered for the kidnapers of the Whltla boy to reimburse it for the cost of the trial. Application of that rule would be a dampener upon detective teal. Two Sigma of the Times, Wall Street Journal. It may be only a coincidence that with the great improvement In current railroad earnings there has likewise been an Im provement In the celerity with which they are given to the public.

Springfield, Mas., Republican. It will not have escaped notice that the effective opposition to the Aldrlch tariff Dili in the senate IS largely confined to the republican aide of the chamber to man representing the republican masses of the west, mere is a significance to this fact which a wise party leadershlD would be quick to recognize and heed.

The narrative of 700 miles In an airship will not be so easy to dramatize aa Jules Verne's story of getting around the world In eighty days, but It Is Just as sensational.

But none of them will break Puck's record of put ting "a girdle round about the earth in forty minutes." Great Debate In the Senate. Boston Transcript. No one can assert that the days of great debate are over. , That which la now in progress In the senate has rarely been equalled in spirit, In vigor. In keeness of repartee, and tn wealth of Information. The contrast between the passage by the house of the Payne bill, with no rumble of re publican opposition, beside the determined and vigorous resistance of the Insurgent republicans to the Aldrlch bill In the sen ate, Illustrates anew how vital an element rules of procedure may become In the work of a law-making body.

The retirement of Lieutenant Oenoral Arthur MacArthur, V. S. A., Is an event worthy of special mention. That offlor has not been for some time discharging the duties which ahould have devolved upon him by virtue of his experience and ability. It was nothing short of unfortu nate that an officer of General Mac Arthur's capacity wa not fully employed during tha time when he was available for active duty. His retirement on Wednesday, by operation of law, affords the oppor tunity of remarking upon the distinguished career which Is brought to an officlat close. No offioer It entitled to greater praise for the services he rendered hla oountry than General MacArthur, who be gan to serve the United States aa a firs' lieutenant of the Twepte'-fourth Wisconsin Infantry and who was honorably mustered out In 1S6. after a service of three years, s a lieutenant colonel of the same regi ment. He attained the grades of brigadier reneral and major general of volunteer In 1804; he Is a medal of . honor man and his service In the permanent establishment since he was appointed as a second lieu tenant of the Seventeenth infantry In Feb ruary, 1866, has included varied snd re sponsible tasks which he met fully In a way that wa creditable to himself and valuable to tha United States. He I the last of the lieutenant generals that office on the active list having expired by legis lation with General MacArthur' retire ment; In which connection It Is proper to note that there are now on the retired list six officer of that grade Nelson A. Miles, S. B. M. Young, Adna R. Chaffee, John C. Bates, Henry C. Corbln and Arthur Mac- Arthur. Unusual Interest appear to attach to the examination which will be held July 12 of candidates for appointment as first lieutenant In the medical corps of the irmv. Numerous applications have al ready been received at the office of the surgeon general and the indications are In favor of a larger number of candidates than ever before. Applications must be in possession of the adjutant general of the army by June 10. There are at present 103 vacancies In the medical corps of the army. A gratifying response from adjutant gen eral of the various states ha been made to the proposition to establish three army medical camps of Instruction this summer at Antletam, Sparta, Wis., and near San Francisco, respectively. Several of the states have Indicated a desire to send to one or the other of these camps all of their mllltla medical officers, who will have the first opportunity of observing a field hos pital organization, complete. The absence of such a facility of observation hitherto has given rise to considerable criticism on the part of mllltla medical offlcera, who have been anxious to learn what was re quired of them and to see what a field hos pital looked like. The surgeon general office of the War departmsnt is making special arrangements to have the exhibits at the three camps of one field hospital, cne regimental-hospital and three sanitary apparatus ao comprehensive and Instruc tive as possible. Officers of the regular medical corps will be detailed to Impart in struction and deliver lectures In field work, hygiene and regulations. It will not surprise the War department officials If Mr. Charles Herring, who Is under contract to deliver a flying machine during the present month at ' Fort Myer, asks to be reMeved from that obligation. There have been Indications of such a desire on the part of the contractor, A request to that effect will be promptly compiled with, as Is done In other In stances where the contracts are of a tenta tive nature such as that In the case of the Herring type of aeroplane. The army sig nal office continues to receive all sorts of suggestions from Inventors of the means of mechanical flight. A form of reply Is sent In response to all such communica tions. Whenever plans are submitted they are promptly returned, It being desired by the military authorities to relieve them selves of a subsequent charge that In any successful mechanism which may here after be developed and adopted these plans have been used. This Is a precautionary measure which Is well taken. Since some of the Inventors are likely to recognize In any solution of the problem the value of their own proposition. The New York Sun' Washington letter, referring to the orders Issued by the sec retary of war, Instructing the chief signal officer of the army to prepare for future use a comprehensive plan for the protec tion of the entire Atlantic coast by dirigible balloon or other air craft, say the scheme Involves the establishment of balloon houses from Florida to Maine. According to the preliminary Ideas of experts, "these station will be about 2f0 miles apart. At each station there will be groups ot two and possibly three of these balloon houses, so that If an airship from one station makes Its way to another there will be a place for storing and taking care of It. The coast will be divided Into zones and airships will be assigned to each zone. The tone will extend a specified distance sea ward from each station. The expert do not know how many airships will be neces ary to protect the coast. "It Is not the present Intention to use air ships as fighting craft and the plans do not contemplate the development of strate gical tactics for conflict. The Idea Is that the most efficient and useful work of the airship Is to go scouting at sea, flying back to shore to give the alarm when a fleet of the enemy is sighted. Should the enemy send up airships from the ships the land batteries will be supposed to take care of them. The balloon stations will be placed as near the coast defenses of the coast artillery as Is deemed practicable. "The type of balloon to be used for coast defense has not been decided upon, but It will be of the most approved pattern, prob ably modeled after the best Kuropeen di rigibles, which have had the greatest suc cess so far, and will he more than 200 feet long. Aeroplanes probably will not be used, na the winds ot the coast will make their work uncertain and unsatisfactory, as compared with that of the lighter than air craft. "In the course of time plans, will be drawn for the defense of all of this coun try's coast line, but the beginning of the work will be on the Atlantic coast. The balloon houses will be of the highest type, similar to a house at Fort Omaha. The work of the signal corps' aeronautic ex perts at Fort Omaha will be continued and before long what Is expected to be the finest aerial elation In the world will have been finished at that military post."

Hastings Republican: If Omaha would add that Missouri river boat line It would give Kansas City a race that would b-s Interesting. Kansas City Is getting Its boat line and It la now up to Omaha to get a similar move on Itself. Beatrice Sun: The barefoot boys with cheek of tan, mere children, who found the hidden treasure of the Omaha train robber, are getting altogether too much notoriety for their own good. They are liable to ge the Idea that they are cut out for detective and will want to go on the trail for the bold, bad desperadoes and the country will be overrun by thief catchers. Springfield Monitor: Rev. Charle W. Sarldge, who has done a noble work In Omaha preaching and saving souls, has added a new department to his business by opening up a matrimonial bureau. Un like most of those bureaus, It Is not a money making scheme, but as the rev ertned gentleman put It, "Why, this Is th Lord's work, and I am In the Lord's service," Kearney Hub: The Omaha Bee Is of course exousable for standing up for Omaha as against the reflections of a number of country newspapers who have concluded that the "metropolis" Is a safe harbor for crooks and criminals. The Bee ought to do that, and It will be admitted that the police force soon run the recent train robbers to earth. The discovery of the clue, however, was accidental, and the arrests were made on Easy streot. The point made against Omaha and It Is u loss to get soro about it Is that there has been entirely too much "free and, easy" In police administration .for which past mayors may have been responsible. Omaha as a big city naturally attracts the crimi nal element, and that presents the very strongest reason for police vigilance. This Is due not only to the people of Omaha, but I due likewise to the state at large. Grand Island Independent: The National Sangerbund is coming to Omaha Just the same. The organization officials have given It out that the members did not decide to come to the Missouri river town to drink.

He will fit himself Into any locality and adjust himself to any conditions, If need be. His motto Is: 'Where on sings there pitch thy tent." And where he runs up against a bit of radicalism he merely tries to round off the roughest edges and get along peace fully and pleasantly with his neighbor, willing to give and take and meet any man half way.

In consequence of the Intervention of the Btate department which permitted the use of it official code In order to conduct an Investigation at Rome Into the status of an alleged Italian nobleman, his marriage to an American heiress In London has been prevented. Tha official Inquiries at the Italian capital elicited the Information that the bridegroom-elect wa neither an Italian nor Austrian noble; that his con nection were humble to the point of plain ness, and that. Indeed, there was reason to believe' that he ha a perfectly well established family already. In fact. It was disclosed that the so-called Italian noble man wa a matrimonial bunco artist, and as a result the wedding I Indefinitely post poned. A a matter of fact, save for the dis closure that a man ha a family already. the exposure of hi claim to nobility as fradulent doe not materially affect the chief consideration.
