IK North Twent eth. found some ftoney n Sixteenth street wh'ch the owner ran have bV Identifying-. i A Far-Reaching Eailroad Decision, The decision of the United States supreme court upholding an order made by the Inter state Commerce commission fixing a rate for Intrastate transportation promises to be far reaching for nationalizing our railroads. To quote the vital language of the court: "Wherever the interstate and intrastate trans actions of carriers are so related that tho gov ernment of tho one Involves tho control of tho other, It Is congress and hot the state that Is entitled to prescribe tho final and dominant rule." The court further declares that the power of congress In this respect has been vestod In the Interstate Commerce cornmlmlon. While careful study of the full text of the decision will be necessary to catch Its full sig nificance, it would seem that a tremendous stop has been taken toward complotc centralization of railroad regulation In the federal govern ment. The only logical conclusion Is that whore congress acts by llsolf, or through tho In terstate Commorce commission, tho exercise of Its authority over interstate commerce carriers supersedes any and all conflicting regulations by the state. Tho disposition of tho court Is to recognlzo fodoral authority ovor Interstate carriers as embracing, not only their Interstate transactions, hut also all tholr Intrastato trans actions, whereby tho latter may affect tho former. If this Is a correct reading of the decision, then tho whole field of rate-making will eventu ally come within the scopo of the Interstate Commerce commission, and bo withdrawn from the Jurisdiction of state legislatures and state railway commissions, although existing stato regulation must necessarily continue until brought boforo tho Interstate Commorco com mission and acted upon. Undor such circum stances tho state commissions at best must tend to bocome only bodies for preliminary Investi gation and provisional orders, for It can be argued that noorly evory rate, ond every Im provement requiring tho outlay of money, may affect tho cost of Interstate business. The same point Is apparently Involved ln ponding litigation over our Nebraska freight rate laws, whoso outcome will now bo more Im patiently awaited. Value of Preparation. It is an endless debato this that President Lowell of Harvard raises as to boys entering college young. Much deponds on tho boy, of course. Ono thing, though, President Lowell certainly Is right in holding that a Into start doos not always Justify curtailment of tho course. Aa he says, to tako a youth out of col lego beforo ho finishes Just because he was lato getting In Is llko cutting a man's head off bo cause ho Is too tall. But another point that desorves emphasis hero is the importance of preparation in the life of the young. That is what higher education moans preparation. Again let us insist against tho too prevalent practlco of taking tho short-cut Into llfo. What llfo most needs Is thoroughness, masterful training to Insure effi cient service. "Lives of groat men oft remind us" of this principle. Moses, who lived 120 years, wo aro told, spent eighty of them ln preparation .and only forty In active service. His was too largo a task to reverse the order. Paul, though in a different' bcIiooI of religion, studied long In the law at the foot of Gamaliel, and had othor training in capacities of leader ship which undoubtedly stood him ln stead when the ttmo camo for blm, undor conversion, to assume command of the great foreign mis sionary campaign. Josus, holy writ says, lived thirty-three years upon oarth, but only throe in aotlvo ministry, tho other thirty In preparation. Abraham Lincoln's long, melan choly life of hardship Inured him to tho colos sal task ho had to perform, Does anyono daro say tho struggle Lincoln endured with poverty and sorrow ln his earlier years did not help him boar the burdon? It is a mattor of historio comment how a man who, as bo Bald, never had more than six months of schooling, could so completely master simple English, Lincoln ex plains it "I romembor how, when a chlUL. I used to got Irritated when anybody talked to me in a way I could not understand." It deter mined him to use slmplo words. His Qottya burg speech, his famous lettor to Mrs. Rlxby and other products of his pen live as epics of litera ture. Preparation was the keynote of his life. It must bo the keynote In any llfo that suc ceeds to Its fullest measure. Education 1b noth ing it not preparation for service. And at this season of the commencement lot' us romomber that the world needs service, but thorough, not half-way, service. Nebraska at a Bread Basket. The government's estimate of the total wheat crop In tho United States this year Is 000,000,000 bushels, which Is about half of the world's production. Nebraska, according to re liable estimates, will produce 90,000,000 bush els, or one-tenth of tho nation's output, or prac tically one-twentieth of that of the world. As a bread basket, Nebraska's relative standing Is well emphasized by these figures, and yet to get the full significance of them we should boar ln mind that the state's resources have thus far been little more than tapped. What proportion of tho world's supply of wheat and corn and oats and live stock we shall pro duce when the whole arable portion of tho state Is under Intensive cultivation, who shall say? Ours Is virgin soil. Even that that Is now tilled for grain Is yet capable of larger yields per acre, and In addition to this we have that other great wide stretch of territory not thus far brought under dominion of the plow and reaper. These things cannot be too widely heralded for the good of the state, and those hordes of people looking for the best place to cast their fortunes and build their homes. It Is the ever- increasing permanence of our possessions that appeals most. 3L! An Illinois congressman wants to prohibit. under penalty, officers of the government, In cluding senators and representatives, from lec turing for pay even to eke out a salary of $12, 000 In these hlgh-cost-of-llvlng days. Envloui monster! Candidates for the vacant headship of the Kearney normal are bobbing up from all over tho country.

June .-To the Editor of The Bee: Flag day this year, coming on Hunday. some are advocating the observance of riaturday. June M. Now, with all due respect for the Sabbath, we ak the question, Why? Old Glory floats over land and sea every day In the year and as it Is the only flag In thft world that repreeents absolute rellKloui; freodom, why should It not wave over cery American home, every American church, every American college nnJ every American enterprlee, great or small, on the Sabbath, commonly called Hunday; especially when the lawful day set apart by our national government, June 11, comes on that day. If there Is a church or people living under tho protecting folds of the Amer ican flag who has nny scruples that Its display on the Habbath day will afffct the sanctity or sacredncss of the iBy we would be glad to have them epeak out and tell their reasons why. This is a Christian nation and the Htar-Spangled Banner the Htars and Stripes Is a Christian flag nnd God has honored It on land and sea. In peace and In war. Then let It wave In alt Its glory on next Hun day, June 14. Hero Is your Uncle John, whose fla will religiously float on that day. JOHN 11, DEY Wnnts "Met" to Itmljcn I'lrst. GRAND ISLAND, Neb., June -To tho Editor of The Bee: I see by tho papers that Richard U. Mntcalfe has an nounced himself as a candidate for gov ernor upon the usual platform of "econ omy." Good for Metcalfe. Now let him resign that 10,WX) sinecure and put his "economy" Into practlco. I am afraid thu principle will not appeal 'lecply enough to cause him to let go of those J10.0W pnld to him for being Bryan's right-hand man. 1 suppose Metcalfe's Idea of economy Is to Jar a few slxty-dollar-a-month Janitors loose from their Jobs, or perhaps reduce tho salaries of a few clerks or deputies, but we will ven ture that he will never sever himself from that payroll. JAMES WI11TCOMUE. .More About CnthnllclMtii, LINCOLN, June 9.-To the Elitor of The Beo: Under the heading, "Catholl clsrri." there waa a communication In The Bee over tho signature of Walter Johnson, and dated from North Loup, Neb. It was an Interesting letter and shows Mr. Johnson to be a man of broad, tolerant views, such an I would expect from n, man of Intelligence and having a correct conception of American citizen ship. Thero are a few points In Mr. Johnson's letter upon which I would llko to com ment, not with a view to dispute anything he has said, but to correct what might give an erroneous Impression. He says Catholicism Is a theocracy, That Is a wrong Idea. Catholicism Is a religion. It Is the religion of the universal church, tho religion adhered to by all tribes, tongues and nations; the same .In China as In Nebraska; the same In Rome ns In Buenos Ayres. It counts among Its ad herents Americans, Englishmen. Irish men, Germans, Frenchmen, Italians, Spaniards and men of every political and racial division of the earth. The head of that religion, the center of unity to all these races, differing in all things else, Is tho bishop of Borne, the successor of St. Peter, tho chief of the apostles, upon whom Christ founded His church. This vast religious aggregation of men and women numbers nearly 300.000,000 of Christians. Millions are French, millions aro British, millions aret German, mil lions are American. Good politics, there fore, aa well aa religion, demands that the head of this great universal church should not be the subject of any particu lar government. That Is why Catholics of all nations demand, as humanly speak ing a necessity, that the pope, or bishop of Rome, should be Independent. Vevt statesmen of today will dispute the cor rectness of this Catholic Idea, and beforo many decades of years shall have passed the European powers will Insist on setting apart a neutral zone, embracing the city nf Home. In which the temporal power of the popo will ba re-established and guaranteed by alt civilized governments. Mr. Johnson says he dots not believe the Catholic people want Roma to rule Nebraska. To a Catholic the very Idea seems a comical absurdity. We Catho lics are very human, partaking of all the good and bad qualities of mankind and among them our share of selfishness. Now what benefit would accrue to us. Jby sur rendering our civil liberties Into the hands, of a number of Italian or cosmopolitan gentlemen over In Rome? Why, If tho absurd end Impossible Idea should be realised and the pope should Issue a de cree commanding us to vote for John Jones ln preference to John Smith for congress, or for the United States senate, wo would simply feel sorry for tho holy father's dementia, and begin to specu late on his probable successor In hla ex alted office. The Idea that the Catholics have under their hats a dream of a great Cathollo empire, or theocracy, to be ruled by the pope ts about the craziest absur dity that ever addled the brain of an Idiot. And yet, to the reproach of Pro testant ministers and Protestant teach ers, there are thousands of poor Ignorant Protestants who can have their very vitals upset brooding1 over the possibility of such a chimerical catastrophe. It la true that certain persona to be found In all parties, generally worthless persons, are endeavoring to raise 111 feel ing against Catholics, to galvanise the dead issues of the A. P. A., which the late Edward Rosewater and The Bee helped very materially to bury. We Catholics can afford to let these coyotes yelp, for every practical politician knows thero Is no political party In this stato that could espouse and survive an antl Cathollo campaign. Tho day Is past when we Catholics had to accept a small Installment of our right, patronizingly bestowed on us as a fuvor. Henceforth we want, and shall Insist on, every right guaranteed to us and to all other de nominations by the constitution of our country. We ask no favor, but we shall resent discrimination. 1 can nssurc Mr. Johnson that we Catholics are not at till disturbed over these little anti-Catholic spasms. They are sure to pass, to die of Inanition and the editors and the politician, who give them countenance will be the ones who later en will aay "they hadn't oughter." JOHN P. SUTTON.

Hatch ren I'lrure of Wnmhlp Life In the llnrltor. FOLLIES FROM JUDGE. Picturesque Scenes. Tampico. the oil metropolis of eastern Mexico, started Uncle Sam's gulf expedlt'ons which were de flected to Vera Cruz. The town has since changed authorities, therfcbels chasing the federals out of the district- Out ln the harbor and on the Panuca' river several warships Idly r!de the tides, silent spectators of the shifting scenes and tending a hclp!ng hand to refugees when necessary. One of the warships Is the Dutch cruUer Kortenner. An unnamed Netherlander, ono of the crulsor's officers. In a letter to a Wash ington correspondent of a nome paper, gives some Picturesque descriptor of tinppenlngs In and around Tampico just hefore the rebels took the city. He says, ln part' "Deliver us from oil! Our ships float In a river of oil. We smell nothing but oil. We hear nothing but stories of oil wells. We must sterilise our water four times to get rid of the taste of oil. Federalists and constitutionalists are killing each other to get hold of the oil fields. When the battle Is over, the dead are hastily thrown In a large heap, oil Is poured over them and the simple funeral flle Is ready. "There Is one advantage, however. The oil works ns a preventive of the worst of alt pests. The mos quito is not much In evidence. There Is no yellow fever. But since typhoid fever, malnrla and smallpox ore prevalent In the town we all get our dally dose of quinine, and so far we have kept well and cheerful. Bnlntlnir the Mexicans. "The American admiral asked us not to fire the customary salute because ,the Mexicans were so ex cited that Innocent firing might cause a terrible panic. The next morning, however, we entered the Tampico river and sailed upstream for some six miles. When we appeared beforo the city we fired our salute of twenty-one guns. Nothing happened. The Mexican gunboat returned tho salute and we went ashore to obtain news. "All along the river wa had seen the evidences of the warfarfe which was going on. Campflrcs, ruined house", little groups of men on horseback. Near the city was the small village of Dona Cecilia, whose In habitants had been murdered and which had been burned down by the rebels. In tho city of Tam pico there was great excitement. Every night there were large demonstrations. Viva Huerta! Viva la llberatedl Mureta los Grlngost Extras with news about the expected war with America. The attacks of the rebels had been going on steadily for three days, but without much result. Evory night they wero repelled. From on board ship we can see this warfare, see the men charge and see the shrapnell explode-soe how villages and houses are set fire to and how the railroad transports carloads full of men to the points which are most threatened. What Wnr U Like. "Yesterday I was on shore. The motorboat with some whaleboats In tow remained near the landing place to take up refugees who were obliged to leave their houses. I must confess that I waa glad to have a trusted browning carefully h'dden In my pockot. All around ue were the most vltlalnouo looking sol dlors with enormous guns. I went to have a look at the Plazn. The rebels had Just then entered the suburbs and the troops were fighting ln the streets. The Mexican gunboats fciragoesa and Bravo were firing tholr large cannon with considerable success. Captured rebels are Immediately shot or. If possible, hanged, and the few trees around tne city are as heavily loaded down with corpses aa a ripe .cherry tree with chcrrlts. Tho Idea of prisoners of war ts not known here. When, according to our rules, a small bond(of either one party or the other ought to surrender tho Victorious party continues shooting j until not a man of the other side remains alive. Ai few cans of oil.', a match and the funeral has taken; place. Nobody Uhows how many men the rebels- havp lost. They take their own dead and wounded with them. They bind their hands together with their larso and drag them along behind their horses to the safety of their own camp, dead, wounded or dying. The federal army, judging by what we see of it. Is nothing to boast about. All prisoners are pressed Into tho army. Every evening patrols are sent tn guard all saloons. Those brethren who appear to have had too much when they leave these drinking places are at once mustered Into the army. Here is a system of prohibition which ought ought to b. successful. Nurseries on Worships. "Immediately after our arrivalJust In the nick of time we took the Dutch colony on board. A new rebel uttock was momentarily expected. First of all, about forty men, women and children arrived. Of course, the officers at once gave their cabins to the women. My excellent cabin became a nursery and tho domestic laundry graces the spot where nothing less martial than a sword had ever been suspended. But war Is war. Many members of the Dutch colony have married Mexican women. Their Ideas of clean liness do not always correspond to ours, but a large supply of oriental perfumeries makes up for much. "Every morning after a very uncomfortable night we are waked up by the chanting of the numerous babies. Large families are still fashionable over here and not a single baby ha been forgotten. After a few days we had to make room for a number of Dan ish subjects who had no other pla to which they could flee. And Just now we have gtven the hospital ity of our thlp to a number of American citizens. "The problem of space now becomes a difficult one. Even the commander has been driven out of his onhtA.
