Concerning the re-organization of the senate W. J. Bryan said : "Tho democrats of the senate have a duty to perform at the very opening of the extra session , namely : the re organization of that body. The demo crats are still in the minority but they will have the selection of the various committees and acting with the pro gressive republicans they can not on ly secure increased representation on the committees but they can make the committees represent the sentiment of the senate. There are some stand- pat democrats in the senate whose sympathies are with the standpat re publicans rather than with the pro gressive republicans but there are not as many of these standpat democrats as there were before the 4th of March , and there will probably not be so many two years from now as there are now. "Tho standpat democrats and repub Means are now in control of the best committee assignments and they may expect to keep them in spite of the fact that they no longer represent the sentiment of a majority In that body It seems likely to bo a question of seniority versus public interest a question of ambition against the welfare faro of the people. It IB not difficult to determine which side to take in such contioversy. It may flatter a man's vanity to allow him to misrep resent his party or his country but I is not democracy. If public officials- even senators are public servants ; i they are selected to do for the people what the people want done then there can bo no question that commit tecs should bo made up , not merely tc pay personal compliments , but to carry out the people's will.

LOBSTER FAMINE BRINGS THE LANGOUSTE INTO VIEW French Shellflih May Tempt New York Appetite * . That portion of New York's popula tion which prcyn on lobsters meaning , of coume , the well known and succu lent crustacean which appears In the * dictionary under the alias Hornnrus omerlcnnus are shocked at news that there Is to bo a famine. There was no wall of agony from the Tenderloin , but an attitude of stunned credulity , ns the fact was spread around that the crop is short this year nnd not only must the prices go up , but the lobsters themselves will be hnrd to gut at any price. The shortage tx'gnn In Boston , which IB considered the fonntalnbcnd of sup ply , and , although It hns bvcu growing gradually for months , did not break over New York until Inter. Then the cruel fact thnt the market price of lob ster hns ndvnnced from 25 to 30 cents a pound became known. The nveniKo lobster weigh * nearly two pounds , costing about 70 cents In the market. Places where n broiled specimen In served for $ 1 have a mar gin of only : tO cents , and this la not enough to suit them , they assert. Broadway restaurants hnve planned no action , except n possible raise In prices , but the stringency hns become no great that nt least ono hns arranged to ship in a quantity of the InngoiiHte , or lmmen .o lobster , which grows In French wafers. "This specimen , " said this restau rant's maniiger , "Is new In New York. It Is much more delicious than the na tive lobster and usually weighs about eight pounds. Of course It would be Impossible to serve n whole one for one or two persons , so wo plan to cut one up In portions , four to the lob ster , nnd charge about $1 each. " Planet Marc Next to Die. Mercury and Venus are already dead and dried up worlds , Mars is rapidly approaching a state of wrinkled old ago , and the earth Is next in the procession - cession headed toward the extinction of all life , according to Dr. Perclvn ! Lowol ) , head of Lowell observatory , who recently addressed the New YorSc Electrical society. Mars is certainly inhabited by some character of organized life , Dr. Lowell snld , and the Martians have far greater renson to deny that there Is life on the earth than we have thnt they exist Dr. I > owell was sure that there was no life on any other planets besides the earth and Mars , all other members of the BOlur system being either al- rendy dried up. so that life , animal or vegetable , cannot exist , or else , like Jupiter , Saturn , Uranus and Neptune , much too young in world evolution and therefore much too hot from interior sources to admit of life of any kind. Assuming the mm to be the source as well us the center of the solar sys tem. Dr. Lowull begun at the outer vast orbit , working Inward. Jupiter nnd Saturn , lie said , arc still actually red hot. They were gradually cooling off. however , as the world Is now do ing. Jupiter no longer shines , though red hot , but its color , glimpsed now nnd then through Its clouds , is a bright cherry red. and Dr. Lowell spoke of It as a huge baby of a world still in its swaddling clothes. City Smoke Affecti Rainfall. On Mars , he said , the clearing of the atmosphere , which had been going on here since the paleozoic era , had reach ed peifection. Mnn , Indeed , he snld. must be the source of constant annoy ance to nil orderly Creator , for he was constantly Interfering with the natural course of events. With city chimneys nhvn.vs belching forth smoke and mak ing It rain , rann , Dr. Lowell declared , wns responsible for more than half the bad weather of which he complains. On Mars the sky Is perpetually clear from morning till night and from spring to fall. While the water on the earth was slowly but surely disappearing through sublimation into the heavens and sink ing Into the oarth. on Mars the sens had already disappeared , though there appeared to have been sens there ages In expressing his confidence in the xNtonco of organic life on Mars Dr. Lowell said : "Only M-lf centered ignorance sus- talnsourM'lf conceit that we are some thing pcvulinr in nature's scheme. Our pet ullnrity consists In so think- In jr. Jupiter , Saturn , Uranus nnd Nep tune are too young yet ; Venus nnd Men-ury. though ostentatiously open , are too old to have anything to reveal. Only we and our next neighbor , Miirs , nre In a position to testify , and the study of those qualified to give nn oplulon is emphatic as to the evidence of orgnnlc life there as here , thoujrk the two are probably quite different. "It Is certainly suggestive thnt Mar tians could from the aspect oJ the earth rnnko out a much more plausible case for doubting the existence of the earthly doubters tnan these can for doubting them.

Editor News : I was very much gratified to ward your recent article urging the young people of northeastern Nobran- ka to take advantage of the agricul tural educational privileges which are to be enjoyed at the atate university ; and farm. Your remarks are very timely , for certainly every young man and young woman who expects to make a permanent home upon the land should seek the necessary prep aration to enable them to enjoy rural life and get out of It the maximum amount of personal happiness and ma terial gain , and these not at the ex pense of the welfare of others , or by selfishly exploiting the- soil , the fertil ity of which it should be their ambi tion to conserve. Recent years have made very plain the absolute necessity of having aucb a preparation as your article suggests. These lovely and fertile lands of ours in northeastern Nebraska have won derful potential ability to make ono oD the fairest and most productive- agr- ricultural districts , but to reach the zenith of their possibilities , these lands must be controlled and inhabit ed by an intelligent and careful people ple , generously educated and specially prepared to carry forward their busi ness on the land , and which demandn so varied and accurate a knowledge of how to fit personal effort into the machinery which nature is operating- and also to take advantage of the nu merous things which are incident to rural surroundings and which have the ability to expand largely that part of human life and experience wo call per sonal adaptation and happiness. The school and college of agricul ture has had some very bright young ; people from the northeastern part of our state , but as you intimate not HO many as should have embraced the opportunity to gain the education nec essary to make them expert and ef ficient agriculturalists , and I sincerely hope that when these departments of the university open next fall we shall see a much larger number of our young folk , both from the eighth grade and the high school entering either the school or college of agriculture. It is the avowed policy of the chan cellor and governing board , also the faculty of the agricultural college , to make these- departments of the uni versity as efficient as it is possible to make them , for they well realize the immense importance it is to the state to have a cultured and specially train ed young man or woman returned to the soil. To make the most of these splendid lands of ours , we must have a proper ly educated population living upon them. Nature has been lavish with her gifts to this portion of the state , but she demands intelligent personal ef fort to develop these gifts to their fullest usefulness. It is , therefore , a matter of vital im port to our state that the best provi sion possible shall be made to cducato our young people and that they take advantage of the splendid opportuni ties to get the necessary education which will enable them to obtain a full measure of beneficial results from thHr lifo in the open country.
