In the Bryan Discard.
Mr. Bryan seems to think the only
raauntlal difference between Harmon
and Underwood Is that one la old,
the other young, and that Wall
street is veering its support around
to tho latter on that account. Of
course, both have defied Mr. Bryan;
therefore, both are in his discard.
Should either become the democratic
standard bearer the people will have
only to turn to the files of the Com
moner to learn that he is the agent
of predatory wealth; they will not
have to take tho word of the repub
licans for that. -

uncovering these two of the three
most conspicuous democratic candl
dates as Wall street tools, trust
trusties, vested interests' faithful
satraps. Of course, should either be
nominated, it Is not to be supposed
that Mr. Bryan would revise- his es
timate of him:
Mr. Bryan is not as outspoken as
to his preferred candidate. He has
tnferentlally leaned toward Folk,
Clark, Hoke Bmlth and Fobs, all ot
whom, he doubtless knows, are out
of eerloua consideration. The dem
ocratic possibilities for the nomina

Harmon, Wilson, Underwood. Mr.
Bryan is silent as U Wilson and vio
lently antagonistic to the other two.
Fuss he lauds because he has been

Mr. Bryan has seldom been for

Our democratic United States
senator, who is opposed to the par
cels post, told tho convention of im
plement dealers that tho mowt ef
fective way for them to block parcels
post legislation is to convince their
representatives thnt the people are
ugaiust it. Senators and representa
tives who do not by this time know
that tho people aro not opposed to
parcels pott cannot be very ob
servant. Tho express companies may con
tinue their H'ocloua arguments
against parcels post, but they cannot
hope much longer to delay it. It Is
coming as sure iu the postal savings
bunk tamo. It would have come
long ago, no doubt, had the people
goue to the trouble of studying the
question. The mall order house is
the source of the argument that par
cels post would put the country re-
taller out of business, but it has bad
no such effect in foreign countries.
The email retailer fills a place which
cannot bo seriously disturbed by the
parcels post any more than it would
be by a reduction in express rates.
With our great postal machinery
more thau adequate to provide for
the parcels post, it is sheer wssU to
continue to leave the service to the
express company combine at extor
tionate charges. It coats $1.70 to send
an eleven pound package by express
from Omiiia to Lincoln, when the
same package msy be sent from
Omaha to Kurope for $1.32 and in
Kurope such package would bo
transported for about 40 cents. If
the express companies an Justify
those relative costs, then they may
be able to prove that panels post
would not be a good thing for us.
The Sugar Tariff.
The beet sugar men offpr rather
good evidence In support of their
claim that free sugsr Is a false
alarm. If removing entirely the duty
from raw sugar benefits tho eastern
Importer and southern esne sugar
refiner to the detriment of the west
ern beet sugar grower, then the duty
had better not tie removed.
Skill has been exerted to make It
appear thnt the cry for free sugar is
a popular demand, coming from the.
consumer, who was to bo tho bene
ficiary, if the beet sugar men are
correct In their claim, thci the con
sumer, next to the beet men, them
selves, would be the chief sufferers
by such tariff revision. The simplo
fact that tlil'i "free Kiigar" propa
ganda is being carried on by the
largo eastern and southern refining
Interests, In Itself betokens an ul
A few years ago sugar beet cul-
turo promised to become one of tho
great agricultural pursuits In the
west and north and bect sugar mak
ing one ot the great manufacturing
Industries. California, Colorado,
Utah, Nebraska, Wisconsin and other
states began to kpq visions of lm
nionso resources as a result of this
now Industry, when of a sudden the
Impulse gave way and the progress
was cut nhort. Today we nre produc
ing only C00.000 tons of beet sugar in
the entire country, a large amount
to be sure, as compared with 45,000
back in 1897, but nothing as com
pared with the possibilities, reckon
ing on the official statement that
there aro 247,000,000 acres of land
highly ndaptod to sugar beets iu this
country. If all thla land, or even
half of It, wore under cultivation to
beets the production of beet sugar
would soon bo mounting tip to sev
eral times C00.000 tons a year.
While we nro engaged In the prof
itable pursuit of scientific tariff re
vision we can afford to give this sub
ject the most careful consideration.
If it be found that tho beet sugar
industry, in Its inclpiency, were
choked by, the larger cane sugar re
finers, then congress should come to
the rescue of the former, of the weBt,
and, in fact, of the consumer. But
under no clrcurnstnaces should re
moval of tho tariff be: ured to tighten
the combine's hold and place tho con
sumer still more at IU mercy.
In his annual report President
Samuel Gompers of the - American
Federation of Labor clearly sets
forth his belief In the innocence of
the Mc.N'amnras, charged with the
dynamiting of the Los Angeles Times
building, In which twenty-one lives
were snuffed out, so that his opposi
tion of the move to' appropriate $50,
000 for the men's defense cannot be
misconstrued Into prejudice on his
part against the accused, Prevailing
sentiment in this country will agree
with Mr. Gompers that, If this aid is
to be rendered at all, it should be
done by private subscription and not
by official appropriation. What union
labor men do as individuals is their
own affair, but the American Feder
ation of Labor may include many
who do not care to contribute.
The many reasons in support of
Qompers' advice in this, it seeniB to
us, are too obvious to need much
emphasis. Organized labor is not
necessarily on trial at Los Angeles,
but might aslly force Itself into an
untenable position by assuming
things which the trial may disprove
Judging from the deliberation in get
ting a Jury, thero ts no Imminent
danger of "railroading" this case
If the defendants get a fair, impar

be accepted and It la this that Pres

The pre-eminence of Uussia as the
wheat king of the wor!d Is strikingly
shown by statistics complied by the New
Yoik Times. During the year ended Au
gust CI last North America collectively
shipped C5. 334.090 bushels of wheat. South
America SM.cW bushels. India 4S."12.
bushels, Australia Gl.lMiCi) bushels, while
P.uspla alone exported 2:'0.072.000 bushels.
It has been estimated that of the grand
total of the world's wheat shipments of
approximately 5CO.ono.000 bushels, Russia
last year ahlpped 45 per cent. When Sir
William Crookesof London predicted
that by 1931 wheat production would
barely equal consumption ho estimated
Russia's yield at only 1.6 bushela per
acre, the United States at 12 bushtls,
Argentina at 13 bushels, the United King
dom at 29. 1 bushels, while Denmark pro
duced 41.8 bushels per acre. Were Ilussia
to Increase Us production to equal that
of Denmark per acre It alone could prob
ably feed Europe and America.
Polotlcal Chaoses In Sweden.
Hard on the heels of manhood suffrage
and the consequent victory of the liberal
forces in the election of members of the
popular chamber of the Swedish Riksdag
King Uustaf has dissolved the first cham
ber and ordered a new election. The first
chamber has long been the stronghold of
aristocracy and privilege. Just as the con
servatives nre entrenched In the House of
Lords In Great Britain tho conservatives
of Hwrden dominated the first' chamber
and checkmated most of the liberal party
measures. In the body Jut dissolved 117
were conservatives, with only thirty-three
members of opposing parties. Members
aro chosen by local bodies, chiefly mu
nicipal. As these bodtea have been elected
by popular voto the political complexion
of their choice for the first cliamber Is
practically settled In advance. The new
first chamber. It Is Indicated, will consist
of eighty conservatives, sixty liberals and
ten socialists. The expected reduction in
the conservative majority. It Is believed,
will establish more harmonious relations
between the two chambers and dispose
of obstructive party tactics. The king
sides with the commons, and privilege
must fall Into Una or get off tho road.
Tenant Farmers In Ireland.
Writing In the London Chronicle, Harry
Jones says there are now In Ireland more
than 200,000 tenant farmers who have
bought their holdings with money ad
vanced ty the tate on easy terms. Under
the old order the tenant has no rights,
and, of course, no land. All the Improve
ment that he might make belonged to the
landlord, and every betterment was used
sa a pretext fur raising the rent. Now
there are more than 200,000 land owning
farmers, who represent probably 1,000,000
people. Tho land laws of the last ten
pears have altered tho wholo face of
Ii eland. "Wo have seen with our own
eyes, writes air. Jones, "the thriving
air of many ah Irish homestead; we have
heard from experts In agriculture that
the wholo method of cultivation has been
improved. Wo note the steady Increase
In the export of Irish agricultural prod
ucts. In short, tho magic of ownership
is visibly transforming rural Ireland. It
was Arthur Young, greatest of all our
writers on agriculture, who said: "Give a
man nine years' lease of a garden and
he will convert it Into a wilderness; give
him secure, undisputed iiossession of a
rock end he will transform It Into a gar

A minister's son, Canadian by birth,
Scotchman by parentage and business
connections, and 63 years of age, outlines
the antecedents of Andrew Doner Law,
the Brltal.-r who succeeds Sir Arthur
Balfour as leader ot the conservative
party In Great Britain. He represents the
Bootle division of Lancashire In the
House of Commons. In most respects his
characteristics are the. opposite of Bal
four's. He Is an aggressive representa
tive of the manufacturing Interests of the
kingdom, an Ironmaster and a protection
ist. Thougn he does not meaaure up to
Balfour in ability as an orator, he has
shown power of the sledgehammer va
riety, cold, calculating and courageous,
and Is a parliamentarian of high rank.
The liberals call him "a bitter and un

An American consular report states that

structly protected since 1HW1, with the re
sult that the number of young vines
show a great Increase. A comparatively
small portion of northeastern Rhodesia
ha recently been Inspected by Mr. De
Josselln de Jong, an officer of the agrl
cultuial department, who estimates that
the five rubber forests which he visited
covered In the aggregate upward of li.CoO
