King, Corn likes this kind of weather, anyhow.-" Just as Omaha gets a new bank two of th old ones consolidate, so the to tal' number remains stationary. The weather man Is trying to re mind us that the corn belt and the tor nado belt are one and tha same. Chancellor von Buelow should get some pointers from1 Senator Aldrlch about how to put a bill through. The weather bureau predicts three more days of hot weather, but it will take time to make Emerson Hough believe It. Qura chewers will have to work overtime to pay dividends on the S6,?00,000 capltalltatlon of the chew ing gum trust. i . A German professor says he has discovered smoke in the moon. Per haps the man In the moon la amoklng to relieve Insomnia. The New York City telephone di rectory contains 210,000 names. Hera is a talking machine that beats the United States senate. The eastbound transatlantic record has been broken by fifty minutes. Just think how much more time that will give you to tour Europe. Mayor Jim is again learning the truth of the old adage, that an ap pointment to office too often makes nine enemies and one Ingrate. August Belmont is financing the Cape Cod canal. If he will put the water behind the locks and keep It out ot the stocks It will be all right. The house naval committee Is going to Hawaii to Inspect Pearl harbor The abolition of the free pass Is tem pered by the survival of the Junket Governor Deneen of Illinois seems to think the people are encoring the late legislature, but It is possible ha mistakes the meaning of the sound. If John D. Rockefeller does not know what to do with his money he might buy a few pounds of radium at the current rate of $8,000,000 pound. E. H. Harriman Is reported to have said that he will outlive some people who wished he were dead. Mr. Harri man Is still to be accounted among the live ones. The report of an Insurrection In Albania does not create much excite ment, because these insurrections break out about as regularly as hives on a small boy. New -York's Committee of One Hun dred Is making an organised effort to exterminate the Tammany tiger They have not yet decided, however, wha will be the Bwana Tumbo of the hunt. Senator Depew bought a ticket tha other day to ride from New York to New Haven and said It was tha first ona he had purchased la forty-eight years. That Is one new Joke to the credit of the senator. Nebraska as a state is out of debt, and the people of Nebraska are like wise more free from debt burdens than ever before. If the people who pay the taxes were not enjoying good measure of prosperity the state could not pay off Its obligations. Complicating; the Tariff. Reviewing the attitude of the news papers of the country the New York World remarks that "the leading re publican newspapers of the country, like the democratic and independent preaa, have been practically of one mind In condemning the Aldrlch tariff bill," and that "this Is the first tariff bill since the civil war which has not bad the support of the repub lican press." The World cites a num ber of influential republican newspa pers throughout the country that have expressed their dissatisfaction with the progress of tariff revision, and finds It significant that there are but a few notable exceptions of newspa pers that are unconditionally Indors ing the work of the senate tariff makers. While the World does not refer specifically to The Bee, our readers will recall that from the start we have proceeded on the assumption that the final form of the tariff bill will not be known until It emerges from the conference committee, and that there la little more warrant for passing comment on the senate schedules as the final draft than there was for accepting the house schedules as the last word. We do not hesitate to say that we are disappointed In the manner In which the senate has gone about recasting the house bill, taking tha house schedules for the most part as the minimum and strik ing a mean between them and the schedules of the present Dlngley tariff. It should not be forgotten, however, that before the bill goes to the presi dent for his approval or disapproval, the differences between the house and senate will have to be adjusted In conference and It Is still possible for the conference committee to bring or der out of chaos by compromises that 111 be fairly responsive to the popu lar demand for real tariff revision. The development that was not an ticipated Is the Incorporation Into the tariff bill of the proposed tax on cor porate net earnings. While this tax In Itself Is not specially objectionable In case It Is needed to produce the re quired revenue, it looks like the sugar coating on a tariff pill designed to di vert attention from the kernel when It could Just as well wait until after the tariff Is readjusted and It Is defi nitely known whether or not addi tional sources of revenue must be drawn on. In our opinion revision of the tariff should have first considera tion, free from complicating entangle ments with other methods of revenue raising. j- American Capital in Canada. The intrinsic value of a protective tariff is conclusively shown In a Can adian consular report lust made nub ile, showing that 200,000, 006 of American capital Is Invested in Can ada by manufacturers who also have plants In this country. - These fac tories have been established in Can ada to retain trade which Is Imnossl- ble to supply profitably from the home factories on account of the Canadian tariff. The best Information Is there are 175 of these firms and the largest plant is that of the International Harvester company at Hamilton, em ploying 4,000 men. Shoe manufac turers are also largely represented. These Institutions, if It were not for the Canadian tariff, could undoubtedly supply the trade from plants In the United States more economically than to erect new ones there. These facts have no bearing- nnon the Justice or injustice of the nar- tlcular schedules in our pending tariff bill, but have a bearing on the value of the protective principle. They demonstrate the fallacy of democratic platform declarations and the short sightedness of democratic leaders who are denouncing other democrats In congress who have favored protective duties. If the tariff can force our United States manufacturers to erect factories la Canada to secure Can adian trade, a tariff can protect the home market from unreasonable com petition from abroad and afford em ployment at remunerative wages to thousands of workmen. Attack on Pare Food Law. The impression Is growing that the suit "brought by the Hippollte Egg com pany against Secretary Wilson Is backed by large Interests and Is to be made a test of the validity of the federal pure food law. The country at large has little Interest in cases in volving applications of the law, but it has a material Interest In its under lying principles. The allegations In the petition Indicate that the case alms to destroy all federal regulation ot food products by challenging the power of congress to pass and tha de partments to enforce a pure food law as an illegal assumption of the state's police powers. State pure food laws have proven Ineffective to regulate business where portions of It are Interstate and a por: tton Intrastate. Local restrictions are enforclble against home products. while those from outside frequently avoid them and varying restrictions hsmper trade. These facts have caused the effort to harmonize atate and federal pure food laws. Adulterations and deceptions many articles had grown so common as to demand the enactment of legisla tion. Spices were formerly sold that were only partly spice, fruit products only partly fruit, maple syrup whose parentage the maple tree was guiltless and countless other articles which were not what they seemed an.il In many Instances containing Injurl oua substance. The federal pure food law was enacted in response to legitimate demand. Where Its pro visions work an Injustice it can be amended, but a denial of the right to pass such a law, however, would be a backward step. Hrst Fruits of tha Deposit Law. Although the new Nebraska deposit law has not yet become effective, and Is not scheduled to be In force until next month, we are already gathering Its first fruits. There is no doubt that the alleged success of the guar anty experiment tn Oklahoma had much to do with the spread of tha doe trine here, and that except for the Oklahoma Object lesson no such legis lation would have been enacted tn Ne braska. The strongest evidence produced In favor of deposit guaranty was the ex hibit of the Increased number of banks availing themselves of the guaranty fund In Oklahoma, msny of them be ing reincorporations of national banks giving up their national bank charters. It was further predicted, with some plausibility, that unless the comptroller reversed his ruling for bidding national banks to participate tn state guaranty deposit funds the national banks in all states where such guaranty funds were maintained would find It to their advantage to be come state banks In order to maintain their business and standing. But, here In Nebraska, Instead of starting an exodus from the ranks of the national banks to get In on tha guaranty fund, the first effect of the new law turns out to be just the re verse, and as a consequence all the largest state banks which would have been compelled to make the heaviest contributions to the guaranty fund have converted themselves Into na tional banks, convinced that under tha new arrangement the restrictions and limitations of the national banking law, although more severe than those of the state banking law, are still pre ferable for long established banks cap italized In excess of national banking requirements. In comparing the effects of tha de posit guaranty in Oklahoma and Ne braska one feature should not be over looked, and that la tho bait of public deposits held out In Oklahoma to bring the banks Into the deposit fund. The Nebraska law, while assuming that the guaranty fund accords the in dividual depositor all the security he needs, still leaves the state, county and municipal authorities free to place public money in any depository quali fying with the required bond, so that there Is no Inducement to any bank to accept the guaranty fund scheme In order to keep Its deposits of public money. It Is plain already that the different conditions prevailing In Ne braska make Oklahoma's experience with Its deposit guaranty law of little value In forecasting what will be the outcome of the Nebraska deposit guaranty law. . Voting itself dry has evidently not ended Lincoln's troubles and It Is now trying to devise some means of stop ping the wicked liquor dealers in Havelock from filling telephone orders for bottled goods to be delivered in Lincoln. There is only one sure .way open: Wall In the town after the pattern of the mediaeval cities and make everything brought in or taken out go across a bridge and moat and through one gate. If Sarpy county gets a windfall from the Inheritance tax which must be used for permanent Improvement of its country roads It is to be hoped it will plan and execute its road-making so as to connect up eventually with the country roads which Douglas county is paving. The value of the paved country road Is almost destroyed if it la built on the patchwork order, lead ing from nowhere to nowhere. Mr. Bryan's Commoner prints his recent statement explaining his atti tude toward the senatorshlp under the caption, "Mr. Bryan Not a Candidate." But here again we have an example of a newspaper heading that does not fit precisely on the body of the article. To have been more correct it should have read, "Mr. Bryan Not Yet a Candidate." ' After being quiescent for some time the house of representatives gives notice that It Is still on deck by passing an emergency appropria tion bill for the census bureau. The senate Is making all the thunder, but if what the house members are saying privately could get into the Congres sional Record it would cause a sensa tion. Mayor Jim wants to make his recep tion room in the city hall a municipal Walhalla by decorating It with the por traits of the men who have filled the city's executive office. Mayor Jim doubtless wants to remind himself that one of his predecessors became gov ernor of the state. A correspondent of the New York Herald' wants pie prohibited by law. That may be all right in New York, but It will not do out here. We must stand 8 o'clock closing and a. whole lot of things, but we will never give up "the pie like mother used to make." St. Louis has organized a $6,000, 000 company to put a line of boats on the Mississippi river. If the company will follow It up by putting on the boats and operating them It will tend to secure appropriations for river im provement. The disclosures of price mantpula tlon by tho Chicago Butter and Egg exchange is an unanswerable rgu ment for the establishment of an ex change In Omaha, where producers and dealers can be sure of a square deal.

Ha la exceedingly wall fixed In a worldly way, and haa at Ms command tha ee.enttals for making Ufa a round of comfort and serenity. Moreover, he occu plea a station in life In which privilege Is tha keystone of the arch. Hence, every movement designed to dl.turb privilege la annoying, revolutionary, socialistic. The fact that tha pending budget lands heavily on the purs of privilege and exacts an Increased percentage of tha "unearned In crement" of wealth. Irritate, tha lordly stndpatter and gives him many hours of anguish. The bill Is progressing steadily through tha various routine stage, of tha House of Commons, supported In all es sentials by an ample majority, that In.ures final passage. Threata are made In un official quarters that tha House of Lords may do tha unprecedented thing and reject a budget which It cannot alter or amend. That such a course is unlikely Is Indicated by Lord Rosebery's frequent letters to the press, by which means he provides am munition for tha opposition in the Com mons and strives to draw away votes. In his latest assault upon the measure Lord Rosabery denounces his former associates In the liberal parly for sanctioning social istic schemes without first submitting them to a vote of the people, and urges changes In tha British .constitution which will check "tha despotism of majorities." "The absolute rule of tha party tn power," he writes, "differs little from what we used to call a despotism. If not, tho nation must have changed tha character of Its former Jealous vigilance and regards Its liberties as replaced by an apathy which is a sinister If not alarming symptom." Several violent earthquake shocks have bee felt during tha first week In June In the devastated section of southern Italy. As they recurred regularly every day, seis mologists were Inclined to believa they were not ordinary aftershoots and conse quently connected with the great earth quake of December 28, 1908, but signs of new seismic disturbances. Naturally sev eral correspondents wired tha news to their papers abroad, but tha censor stopped all the telegrams. No reason waa given, but It has leaked out that the society whose, object it la to attract tourists to Italy feared that tha possibility of earth quakes might keep foreigners away and therefore caused tha suppression of the telegrams. Tha Influence of tho society on the censor Is by no means limited to earthquakea, but extends as welt to the temperature In summer. In fact, a corre spondent of an Important London dally newspaper who Is Instructed to send the temperature In the principal Italian cities Invariably ha. the telegrams stopped on very hot days. e 'Some remarkable performances by the British navy were reoorded last month. When the Portsmouth squadron of tha home fleet was sent to the maneuvers in the North sea the great gray ships were turned loose and told to make time. The cruiser Invincible made the trip at an average .peed of 28 knot, for the six hour., and reeled off & knots during one hour, while tha Dreadnought made an average of 21 knots. On of tha guners behind a twelve-pounder - on tha destroyer Avon made a fine record on tha target range at about the aame time. With the tfttle ves sel at full speed he fired twelve shots In forty-five seconds at a target six by eight feet, anchored 1.000 yards away, and he lilt the thing exactly twelve times. The Amer ican gunners will have to hustla to beat this. The struggle against Increased taxation Is proceeding In the German Reichstag as fiercely as In the British House of Com mons. Last week the contest turned upon taxing the "unearned Increment tn land," a acheme whereby the publlo treasury would profit by sharing directly In the rise of land valuea. The plan done not meet with favor as a source of national revenue, but haa been oflclally endorsed as a tax pre-eminently suited to municipal finance. Several German cities already Im pose such taxes, notably Frankfort, where the tax on Increase In land values Is col lected whenever real estate Is transferred In ownership. The Imperial government's decision In this matter, however, does not seem to advance the financial legislation which It so ardently desires from the Rel-h-stag. Chancellor von Buelowa speech did not restore peace among the groups that formerly composed the government ma jority, Tha cxar's visit to Poltava on July T and 8 will make notable the 100th anniversary of the Important battle of that name, In which Peter the Great finally broke the power ot Charles XII of Sweden and there by made sure of territorial access to the Baltic sea for tha Russian empire. Poltava was one of tha moat decisive battles In modern history, since It made modern Rus sia possible. Charles XII never recovered from the blow. He fled to Turkey the same year and died not long after he had returned to Sweden. Never since then have the Swedes been able to revive the tradl tlona of Guatavua Adolphu. and become a first-class military power. But the people have prospered In all the arts of civilisa tion and peace far beyond the victors at Poltava. In that fact lies the essence of true greatness. Complaints have recently been rife In China aa to the failure of the authorities to provide proper protection to passengers on the Shanghai-Nanking railway. It ap pears, saya the Railway Magazine of Lon don, that when some Irresponsible China man meets with an accident through tres passing on the line, or not exercising proper caution at a grade crossing, it Is customary for hi. fellow villagers to stop the next train, bombard It with stones, and extort compensation from the unlucky travelers. The wily celestial who worship hi. ancestors la not above making a pe cuniary profit out of his dead, and It 1. aald that in mora than ona case a oorpse has been placed upon the rails so that It might be run over and compensation claimed from the railway authorities tor tha alleged fatality. The rouncll of the Bread and food Re form league of England ha.

Experiments made on the human digestion In America confirm tha state ments of the Bread and Food Reform league that mora protein flesh-forming material can be assimilated from whole wheat maai when it la ground to a uni form flnenaaa than when coarsely ground, while experiments in Germany show that from 800 grammea of finely ground wheat meal tha body assimilated nearly two and a half times wore of lUe mineral sub- OOOOOQOOQOQOQOOOQOOOO O A $7.50 O O o o o o o o o o o o o o Cnlnrt ""1.1 HO!

LOCAL CONSIDERATIONS OOVKHM LoBrrelllasr Hetboda In Frsmlsg tha Tariff Bill. Chloago Tribune. The vote by which hides were taken off tha free list, where the Payne bill put them, shows how senators ars governed by local, selfish considerations In fram ing; a tariff bill. Ten democrats repudiated tha party doctrine of free raw materials because they believed their constituent., mostly democrats, approved of a duty on hides. New England senators who have been standing by the finance committee while It was bestowing excessive proteo tlon on the cotton and woolen Industries of their section, broke away from It In tha matter of hide, because the great shoe manufacturers of New England asked for free raw material. Borne of the "Insurgent" senator, who have been strug gling to get cheaper cotton and woolen clothing for the people voted against giv ing them cheaper shoes. They were afraid their farming constituents would be of fended If they voted against the duty. Tama Jim la Nat m Quitter. St. Louis Republic.
