What the Colonel Wanted, The colonel was beaten fairly and squarely for the nomination at Chi cago, as every one admits who knows anything about it. The colonel undertook to get the nomination for himself by setting up 200 fraudulent conteste for fake delegations, which, had he controlled the party machin ery, he would have seated, and through whom he would have pre vented the nomination of President Taft, even though he might not have been able to nominate himself. The colonel has no more ardent and devoted follower than Prof. Al bert Bushnell Hart of Harvard uni versity, who was one of his dele-gates-at-large from Massachusetts, who in Chicago followed his instruc tions in every particular, and who Is now supporting him earnestly. In an article in the Boston Transcript, Prof. Hart incidentally explains what the colonel wanted to do: The main trouble In the Chicago con vention was that a lot of delegates had been chosen by methods, which, although not prohibited by the rule book, were not afflrmatli-ely statinl there, and t'ie other side, which was In possession 0f the referee, the umpire and the linesmen, declined to make any ruling which would Involve a change of traditions. In other words, had the colonel been "in possession of the referee, the umpire and the linesmen" he would have thrown tradition, law and honest dealing to the winds, and have counted himself in. Being blocked in this effort, he is trying now to divert attention from the facts by hurling vicious epithets at every one who refused to do his bidding. ANGER OF GREAT MEN Allowance Should Be Made for the Ball Moose Temper. Portland Oregonian. Really, Commissioner Ryder only needs to go through the ordeal of the recall to cinch his already accumu lated national reputation, A Lincoln newspaper comes out with a real boost for, the Ak-Sar-Ben .festivities at Omaha. The era of good feeling Is surely approaching. The colonel's common expletive, "By George," might be mistaken In the heat of a speech for "My George" without getting wide of the mark. Our republican candidates who are trying to perform also in the progres sive ring must appreciate better now the difficulties that all these years have been besetting the democratic acrobats walking a populist slack wire. And here is the mayor of Kansas City declaring to a gathering of its business men: "It is time you got some ginger into the business spirit of the town,- as you had It fifteen years ago." That puts a different aspect on the reputation we thought Kansas City bore for putting ginger in its spirits. " " The Budget System. Aside from any political consid eration, President Talt's advocacy of a budget system, instead of the promiscuous appropriation method, Is entitled to tb6 soberest attention. It ought to carry weight. with those who believe in applying the prin ciple of economy and efficiency to governmental business. As the president says, this is the only great nation that , operates without a budget. It pays other nations and would pay this one. It would cut off loose ways of wasting the public money, now fostered by the pork barrel system. , The president urged upon the late congress that it co-operate with the economy and efficiency commission, but without avail, for the democratic majority in the house was not willing to sink party politics in the common good. Sooner or later Mr, Taft's pro posal will carry and then we shall wonder that we ever attempted to transact business on the loose, hap hazard basis as now. In urging the budget plan, the president points out also, that under the old system congress has usurped functions of the executive to the de basement of the service. It is neces sary for the president to know the needs and progress of every depart ment of the government, and it Is a vicious system that enables anybody to withhold from him such informa tion, as the house has done. The president has cut down many recom mended appropriations, saving mil lions to the government, but under a definite budget plan much more good could be accomplished. Our Greatest Output. And , now comes the American farmer and again challenges the won der of the world with his crops. We boast of our manufactures and of our mineral resources, and tell with pride of our commerce that mounts into the billions, but when we come to face the facts of the American farm words are feeble. The figures in the totals are beyond the power of man's mind. For example, the government's es timate on the corn crop now almost matured is .2,995,000,-000 bushels; on the wheat crop, 690,000,000 bush els; for the oats, 1,290,000,000 bush els, and for other leading crops the tale is told in similar figures. If the crops named are sold at prevail ing market prices they will bring al most $4,000,000,000. The other crops will Increase this until Secre tary Wilson's estimate of 19,000,- 000,000 as the value of the 1911 crop will be passed just as the yield of last season has been passed in totals. Nebraska's share in this wonderful total is such as will bring the state right into the front rank when the final figures are published. The American farm Is still the underly ing factor in the nation's prosperity, and nowhere is the farmer more lib erally rewarded tor his toil than in Nebraska. It Is but one of the many signs of Mr. Roosevelt's greatness that he has a bad temper. Heroes of all ages have been notable for this Infirmity. Napoleon would fly into a rage for less than the loss of a book and lay about him right and left. Seldom was there an article of furniture left whole after one of his rage was over. Sometimes he ended a fit of passion by foaming at the mouth and falling into ' epilepsy. The colonel certainly made things lively for the hotel people when he saw his book was lost, but compared with the conduct of other heroes, more or less mythical, In similar predicaments, he was moderate, There was Martin Luther, for instance, who quarreled with every other theologian under heaven and finally capped the cli max by getting into a row with the devil. As the affair grew heated Luther threw his Ink bottle at the adversary and hit him, too. It does not appear that Colonel Roosevelt threw anything harder than words at the hotelkeeper. They may have hurt the poor fellow's feelings a little, but what is that to spatter a person all over with Ink? Caesar was another hero, whose temper got away from him many a time when it would have been far wiser to have reined it In. Alexander the Great would fly into a passion when the least thing went wrong and Frederick the Great's father, when he was crossed, became a perfect fury. Time and again he ran through the streets of Berlin striking right and left with his cane and driving his bewildered subjects Into whatever shelter they could find. The colonel lashes only with his tongue thus far, but infirmity of temper always grows upon these great historic characters with advancing age and In creasing power. Hence we may know; what to expect as his reign . progresses. A man who possesses the sense of omnip otence cannot bear to hear either his au thority or his wisdom questioned, spe cially when both have become universally admitted and admired. He gradually Identifies criticism with rebellion and. feeling the entire being of a great nation summed up in his own soul, sees little difference between one who differs with him and one who actually blasphemes his name. Indeed, it is quite natural and proper that the colonel should ascend Olympus and sit among the deities. The same cus tom prevailed among his precursors in ancient Rome. They not only became gods, but they were worshiped with for mal religious rites. People not only said, ''as for me and my house we will serve the divine Nero or Heliogabulus," but they actually did it No doubt" we shall alt be doing the same thing before long, mutatis mutandis.' We look expectantly for the appearance of some great genius who shall compose a prayer book and ritual for the service of the divine Theo dore. Those who recognize his divinity will, of course, perceive nothing incon gruous in the colonel's belief that he Is the one great man and the sum total of human wisdom. Most kings and all deities have felt the same way. "In me," exclaimed the great Julius to the pirates who had laid unholy hands upon his per son, "you carry the destinies of Rome." Louis of France expressed the same thought still more tersely when he told his courtiers, "I am the state," If the colonel thinks, therefore, that he Is the United States and all its inhabitants, why should we find fault with him? He can find plenty of precedent among the kings and emperors, who, In his opinion, are his only proper associates. EoolilpBaiisWard This Day in Omaha COMPILED FROM DEE Fllr- r SEPT. 23. TAFT'S EPITOMIZED PLATF0EM An Era of Prosperity Promoted by Wise Action. Washington Post. More effective than any plank In the republican platform, more convincing than any other argument that he could make to the voters, la the statement made by President Taft that the chief question the country must decide is whether It Is safe to make a change in the White House at a time when we are. entering upon a new era of prosperity. It would be difficult for the president to frame a better platform for his cam paign than is Implied In that part of his statement wherein he says: "Crops are bumpers, and conservative business interests throughout the country are thriving under tried conditions which permit a share in the prosperity which will continue unless there Is a change to frighten off capital or bring about Just such disturbing conditions aa the tariff bills I vetped might have brought about. I. vetoed those bills because I was con vinced they would disastrously disturb business condition's In the country." From the president's standpoint, no bet ter argument could be made for the con tinuance of the present administration In power. Neither Colonel Roosevelt nor Governor Wilson Is making any refer ences to the great wave of prosperity which is sweeping over the country. The steel mills are working full time; all other mills are working to capacity; the railroads at last are making extensions, and the crops give promise of being phe nomenal. Mr. Taft makes a strong point in his argument that the low tariff bills sub mitted to htm at the last session of congress might have halted the prosper ity that is rapidly spreading. Had he signed the tariff bills, and had many mills closed as a result, with thousands of men thrown out of work, his would have been the responsibility, and he would have been held to account by the public. The president therefore would bo well within his rights if he claimed more credit than he does. There were those who held some months ago that the president would have shown better political judgment by signing the democratic bills and letting the country take the consequences. . Such a course might have put the country in a frame of mind where It would have turned naturally to the republican party for re lief. But President Taft felt too high a sense of responsibility to play politics tn so grave a crisis. He is justified now, therefore, In claiming credit for the part he played in fringing; about the new era of prosperity. ox ran POLITICAL SNAPSHOTS. Praetiee Groands for Itlh School. OMAHA, Sept 23,-To the Editor of the Bee: I am addressing this same cornel munlcatlon to the Board of Education and I hope you will give It space. In view of the liberal attitude of the board toward school athletics la the last few years, I wish to call attention to t method of greatly Improving the present practtce grounds of the Central High school at Twenty-second and Davenport Streets. The. present practice grounds, now being cleared up for the fall foot ball practice, I presume, Is somewhat smaller than the field was before grading was started on the new west wing, but If a retaining wall were built on the north side of the field (this could be done at a comparatively small cost) extending nearly to. Davenport street, the low side of the present field could be filled In, and that would make a lot big enough for several teams to play on at once, 01 suitable for practice games, and all forms of athletics : The reasonable cost and ease of carry Ing this idea out would seem to justify Its consideration. GEORGE F. DARLOW. California papers make much of their state's salubrious climate, which is salubrious in spots. And that is well, but it would be better if the ex ploiting was not, done at the expense of the climate of other sections of the country. It 111 becomes a San Francisco paper, for instance, to say too much on the subject of meteoro logical conditions to the exaltation of that great city and the disparage ment of others further east. If the rest of the world is willing to keep still on a few things, San Francisco , ought to be. The international peace movement never had anyone In the White House to score for it as vigorously as President Taft. The re-election of the president would mean more for world peace than anything its advo cates have accomplished in fifty years. : How clever In our hydraulic water boarders exempting themselves from the recall when they patched up the commission plan law to' perpetuate their own salaries.

SILVEH CREEK, Neb., Sept. S1.-TO the Editor of The Bee: Permit me to heartily commend the action taken by A. 8. Moon, chairman of the Loup county republican central committee. It Is the stand that all honest republicans should take. When Governor Aldiich was run ning two year ago, I could not believe the charges brought against him of double dealing,, but since he has keen governor Ms actions have been such that those charges do not look so unreasonable now. I am now 60 years old and have always been a consistent republican, ' and if I have a chance to vote the republican ticket this fall, shall do so but as be tween a bull mooser and a democrat, I feel that I am free to make my own choice. I see that my old friend. Dr. W. O. Henry, has departed from the ways of his youth and is following after strange gods. The doctor and I were school boys together and both studied medicine In the office of his father. As a boy Dr. Henry had . strong convictions and was always consistent In following them. But It is Inexplicable to me now to see how he can follow a man who has made so many Inconsistent statements- and been so Inconsistent in his public actions. W. C.

Chicago Record-Herald: Testimony which has just been presented in court Indicates that officials of the Standard Oil company continue to be In control Of the subsidiary oil companies, but the pub lto will not be likely to liken this to a thunderclap out of a clear sky. Chicago Inter Ocean: As a further proof that the primary law will inevitably retire all the regular republican leaders who oppose Mr. Roosevelt, we take the liberty of calling attention to the renom Ination of the Hon. Sereno Payne for con gress by a sufficiently large majority. Boston Transcript: Woodrow Wilson Is to be credited with a very neat reply to ex-Senator Beveridge's fear that If he (Wilson) were elected he would be con trolled by the bosses. Governor Wilson's definition of a boss is "a political agent of certain special Interests, who see to It, through htm, that' people they can con trol are put in office, and that lawa they do not want are kept off the statute books." This seems very like a reference to one George W. Perkins, and therefore all the more worthy of the earnest at tention of Hon. Albert J. Beverldge. . A Panama "Roorback." . New Tork Sun. The army engineers make short work of the discovery of a correspondent of the London Times that the forts on the Naoa group of island at the Pacific entrance to the Panama canal could be "pounded to pieces" by an enemy's heavy guns mounted on the Islands of Taboga and Tabogullla, which are outside the Zone. The engineers draw attention to Article II, of the treaty, which provides that the United States may occupy and fortify these islands for the defense of the canal. But after ait that Is only one of the answers to this English tactician; he should be reminded that a coaling base ts necessary to operations on a large scale by a hostile fleet and that no European or Asiatic nation has such a base, or will be allowed to have such a base anywhere on the Pacific coast of continental America.

Twenty Years Ago The weather cut a strange caper 1n Omaha when the thermometer went to ninety-six and the wind seemed bent on soaring to an equally high plane of action. Charlea C.
