OularabuB people have of reading their
neighbor's Daily Journal, when one
of the number.a good married woman,
said that she saw something in a paper
that she believed would "cure, the
habit." Here is the clipping:" A Kan
sas paper awarded a prize offered for
the best answer to tho query:" Why is
a daily newspaper like a woman," to
tbo answer given by a woman; "Be

Editor Pratt ot the Humphrey Dem
ocrat is evidently afraid of cyclones.
Strange that an Editor wonld tie
alarmed at anything. But thoy are
some times. After reading of the cy
clone that occured in Omaha a few
days ago and being almost m tho mid6t
of one up his wav lately ho admits of
flying Into the cellar and there on
bended knees remained in silence nn
til the fnrv of tho storm had passed.
On emerging from tho pit ho went
straight to his office and wrote his
sentiments concerning his retreat be
low ground during tho storm. Ho
says: "People will poke fun at the
Damocrat editor for crawling into
the cellar during the worst of the
storm. Host of our readers have heard
abont tho dead hero and the live cow
ard. This editor is going to continue
to board with his wife just as long as
Providence will permit, even though
he is called a coward for doine so."
The Telegram has brought to light
a terrible state of afffrs. Jesse L. Root
was a candidato for appointment on
the Supreme Court Commission. Some
of his friends thought if ho would
assure a certain railroad attorney of
his friendliness to railroads ho could
get tbe endoisoment of tho railroad
attorney and his friends thought such
an endorsement wonld land tho ap
pointment. Jesso balked and like a
number of other candidates, railroad,
aati-railrcad and nentrals, got left.
Whether tho Telegram blames Jesse's
friends for suggesting such a course,
Jesse for balking or tho members of
the Supreme jConrt who appear to
have known nothing about it, is not
DECORA TIOX D. Y.
Tho Hnghes Bill providing against
the desecration cf Decoration Day by
ball games, horse racing and other
similar sports will not be in force till
July 1 so that it will not effect our
next Decoration Day.
It is to bo hoped, however, that
the good citizens of Nebraska will
join heartily with the members
of the Gracd Army and the Sons of
Veterans, in creatine a public senti
ment that will enforce the spirit and
purposes of the Hughes mil even
though it cannot bo legally enforced.
It should be gratifying to the old sold
iers and sons of veterans of Colum
bus, to know that Manager Corbett
of the Columbus Base Ball club has
refused to sign for a came on that
day and expresses himself in favor of
a strict and reverent observance of
that most sacred of all our legal holi
days. The Journal hopes that its readers
in every part of Platte county will
take a firm stand for the elimination
of all sports in their respective com
araaities on May :.
THE LWRARrS XEEDS.
All friends of education and pro
grass will no doubt join in the hope
that the city council will deal as gen
erously with the pnblic library tnis
year as the law allows. The remarks
of Jadge Boeder and Prof. Britell be
fore the council last night would
without question have been endorsed
by a great majority of our citizens if
they could hav heard them. The law
permits a two-mill levy for the library
which, as Judge Beeder said, would
be aa averaee of about twenty cents
a year for each inhabitant of the city.
As the sneakers farther said, -the
library board is not coming as a beg
gar. The support of a public library
ia mat a charity, bnc a duty. The li
brary is second oaly to the public
school system as an educational insti

An international congress of scien
tists assembled at Berlin yesterday
to celebrate the achievements of
the famous Professor Roentgen, dis
coverer of the X-ray. Roentgen of
coarse was expected to be present and
his name was put on the program bnt
at the last' minute he declared he
didn't have the nerve to appear before
a convention that had assembled to
do honor to him. Another encourage
ment for us bashful great men.
Harry Lindsay comes back from
Texas and announces that the press
reports of the incidents betweenDavis
cf Arkansas and Mickey of Nebraska
weie grossly exaggerated. He says
that the reproof which the honor
able Davis administered to the honor
able Mickey was eo delicate and so
veiled that the audience didn't notice
it at all. According to Mr. Lindsay,
all thero was to it was this : Govern
or Cummins of Iown and Governor
Mickey of Nebraska made speeches as
northern visitors to a southern state.
Then Governor Davis of Arkansas, on
behalf of tbe South, got up and said
he was glad to welcome Governor
Cummins of Iowa, but he had no
welcome for a man who sought to
revive memories of the civil war.
That was all, says Mr. Lindsay. Of
course, that's different We had been
led to believe that the honorable
Davis said- something discourteous,
but now that the circumstances are
explained it as clear as mud that
the reports were exaggerated. It will
be perceived that he didn'c mention
Governor Mickey's name at all ; he
didn't recall to the audience the fact
that some six minutes previously
the Governor ofNebraska had remark
ed that his only former visit to the
South was as a Union soldier in the
'('0's; he didn't even remind the
audience that another governor be
sides Cummins of Iowa had just
made a speech and was that minute
sitting on tbe platform. His allusion
was positively delphic in its obscurity.
That Jeff Davis wonld have made
a great diplomat. It is fortunate that
the polished statesman from the Oz
arks observed 6uch delicacy of expres
sion, for we beliovo that if ho had
been any less tactful some of the
auditors would very likely have seen
what ho was driving at. Texas audi
ences are evidently keen.
A citizen of Seward. Neb., publish
es the following advertisement in the
To the Parents of Soward :
I am trying to raise flowers, bnt it
looks now as if I would have to give it
up, because your boys and girls are
nightly raiding my premises, stealing
my flowers and trampling into tbe
earth others just coming up that will
bloom later. I have never refused
the gift of a flower to 'anyone who is
gentleman or lady enough to ask for
it. I am fully aware that, to the
majority of you, I am not supposed to
have any rights that anyone is bound
to respect, and am also uwnre that the
notion is fnlly shared with you by the
present city administration, and that
an appeal to them to protect my prop
erty would be worse than useless.
Therefore in order to protect my prop
erty, which I shall surely do, I must
resort to primitive methods. This
therefore is to warn yoa that, unless
yon can keep yonr children within
bounds of the law, vou may expect
them horsowhipped whenever they set
foot on my premises at nights in this
regardless' of sex. F. B. Tipton.
If chore is anything that is calculat
ed to justify a return to first princi
ples in tbe matter of retribntivo jus
tice, it is the great American pastime
of despoiling flower beds. A flower
in its native state is a thing of beauty
and any person who mnrdors it with
out good and sufficient reason 6hocId
be held guilty of a felony. It is diff
erent with tho other things that nro
tho usual objects of nocturnal raids.
A hen can be considered beautiful
only by a far stretch of imagination
or by comparison with a dnck ; and
a watermelon is as ugly as Oom Paul.
The swiping of such articles as these,
which serve none but a material
purpose in the cosmic order, has come
by common consent to be regarded as
a venial sin. Bnt the bloom and fra
grance of tho flowers that bloom in the
springtime, gentle Annie, occupy a
higher station, and it is good to find
a defender of them, even if he speaks
only for his own flowers. We rise to
endorse unequivocally the sentiments
of the gentleman from Seward.
In a hundred phases, the relation
shins of the corporations and monop
olies with tho Government and the
people were under vigorous discussion
throughout the United State? last
month. The most striking event in
the series of events or situations that
provoked all this fresh outburst of
argument and arousing of tho public
mind was tho election of JndgeDuune
as mayor of Chicago, on a platform
demanding the immediato ownership
of the street railroad lines of the city
by the municipal government and the
direct conduct of tho business as a
municipal department. Thero have
been many creditable things in the
history of tho municipal government
of Chicago. In view of tne brevity
of the city's existence, the hetero
geneous character of its working pop
ulation, and the other difficulties be
longing to the circumstances of the
case. Chicaco's achievements are
among the greatest in tho history of
mankind. In due time, doubtless,
Chicago will overcome its chief re
maining defects, and obtain full
recognition for all its past and present
merits. There is now only a com
paratively narrow margin of advance
ment to be won in order to transform
Chicago from its present disparaged
and criticised condition into a much
lauded and admired metropolis. It is
obvious that one of the thingsCbicago
most needs is an up-to-date transit
service. Whether however, this is to
be promptly and thoroughly obtained
by Tirtue of the election of Judge
Dunne as mayor, is a question that
time alone can answer conclusively.
There will be many difficulties con
fronting Jadge Dunne's programmo;
and the thousands who havo assumed
that the thin is as good as accom-
pli8hed,merely because of tbe triumph
of the municipal ownership I
the polls" will probably find that they
did uot take due account of the mag
nitude andoomplexity of the problem.
Review of Reviews.
FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE.
Mr. Carnegie's big donation fcr the
benefit of retired college professors
dees uot carrr the condition that he
usually attaches to his gifts. He does
not ask that the public shall raise a
certain sum before he gives his money.
But he calls attention to the wisdom
of the New York pnblic schools in pro
viding retiring pensions for their
Officers of oar armv and navy re
ceive pay for life. They are public
servants of a class that requires spec
ial training nnd entire devotion of
time and energy. If n man was turn
ed out of the military or naval service
at middle age. knowing no other call
ing and having no provision ot fnture
maintenance, what class of men wonld
be applicants for the posts of presonsi
bility in onr army and navy. When
a war mteht break out, wonld there
be any Grants or Shermans or Deweys
in the service? Only those would
enter tho lighting profession whose
nativo love for war is strong enongh
to overcome their considerations of
prudenco and their desire to provide
their families with the bus-t advant
ages they are able to give them.
Sncb is exactly tbe condition that
exists with regard to the teaching
profession. No man enters that field
except thoso who are not fitted for
any other, anil who tnke advantago of
the constant demand, or those whose
love for the cause of learning is great
enough to inducn them to adopt a
profession which is ueitncr proptrlv
paid nor propcrlv respoctrd. It goes
without saying that if it were remun
erated as it should lie bettrr men
would bo attracted .to it and greater
regard for tho teaching profession
would bo found atunug people at large.
It is devoutly to bo wished that the
authorities having charge of our var
ious public school.-', state universities,
etc , will follow the example set by
the New York City schools and An
drew Carnegie, and provide for the
maintenance, of retirtd teachers of
public institutions of learning.
So far as the present city council is
concerned, the city printing is settled,
and settled on a business basis that
will meet the entire approval of a
very large majority of citizens. It
remains only for tho council now to
award the work to tho lowest and
best bidder. They can award this
work either on tho unit plan or on
the item plan. Which shall it be?
It is to bo hoped, as a matter of
protection for the fntnre, that the
conncil will adopt the item plan.
Where the council is honest; where
no paper bas a graft ; where estimates
are solicited on all work actually
needed, no more and no loss, it makes
little difference which plan is adopted.
Bnt if onr city government should
ever fall into the hands cf men who
desired to graft the public in the in
terest of their favorite newspaper,
they could uso the unit system to
accomplish tboir purposo, just as that
system is being used today in Platte
county in contravention of law and
Tho item plan makes that kind of
graft impossible. Tho nnit plan offers
a constant indncemont to craft. Tbe
item system saves money by securing
tho very lowest price on each item.
If our council adopts the item plan,
they mav not save tho city five dollars
on a year's printing this year, becanse
they have asked bids on all supplies
needed and no mere, but they will
establish a precedent that will disarm
dishonest officers if wo should. elect
them in the future, nnd save the city
hundreds of dollars.
In arguing along these lines we are
aware that the nnit srstem is better
for tho nowspapcr temporarily. But
we believe that strict honesty nnd le
gitimnte profits form the only safe
basis for any business in the long run,
and that newspapars are no exception
to that rule
Argnment, however, is unnecessary.
Gentlemen of the conncil. read the
records at the court house. Take note
of tho items that the Colnmbns Tele
gram bas offered to furnish the county
on the nnit plan, at nearly 50 per cent
below cost, and then check over the
printing bills and see how many of
thoEO items you find have been furn
ished. Then take note of the quanti
ty of supplies that have been furnish
ed outside of tbe items named in the
bids. Then count up the hundreds of
dollars that have been wasted in the
coznty printiug on this plan.
When you have dono this, just act
as you would in establishing a pre
cedent for the conduct of your pri
Onr old friend the World-Herald has
been using the cable service of the
Hearst papers for some time, and now
it is under a grave suspicion of having
branched out into yellow journalism
in its local news. The mysterious
appearance of tbe celebrated Pat
Crowe, who drifted into tho World
Herald office unsrrn by the rest of the
ciry of Omaha, and cnbesHOWGst to
anybody but the ono man who wrcte
up the story, looks very much like
some of the products of tbe New York
World or the great Hearst dissemin
ators of up-to-date fiction. At any
rate, nobody but the World-Herald
seems to believe the story.
However, this particular incident
is of no great importance. The in
teresting fact is that tbe yellow papers
are the ones that are most prosperous
and most sought after by the public.
The uneducated masses like tham
for the same reason maybe that they
like the five-cent novels. And nntil
the masses are educated beyond the
present stage, there is not much doubt
that the city newspaper that wants to
make monev had better spread on as
much of the saffron as it can possibly
But while this is true of city papers,
it doeB not seem to apply to those that
circulate in the country and smaller
towns. The country paper which is
reliable and honest is generally the
one that succeeds in the long run.
Neither depraved tastes nor benighted I
ignorance can be foaad in the country
to anything like the extent that ex
stsin the large cities. Therein at
least one comfort tnat canaot be taken
away from the lowly newspaper man
of the crossroads.
Since 1S90, according to Harper's
Weekly.no less than fifteen states have
attempted to parity elections by
statute. Some of them have laws
limiting the expenditure or campaign
money; some have attached severe
penalties for tbe use of any campaign
money whatever by candidates : and
still others simply compel pabltcity
as to campaign expenses and contri
butions, both by individual candi
dates and party committees.
It is pointed out that the use of
money to pay campaign debts has
grown in direct proportion with the
growth of eivil service reform. In
the early days when campaign debts
could be paid with offices, it was not
necessary to use money. Abraham

SPEECH 3V CHIEF EXECUTIVE
Addrecs is a Discussion of Regula

uous Banquet Ever Held in Colora
do is Given Him.
Denver, May J. The entertainment
cf President Roosevelt by tho citizens
of Denver last eight was a fitting con
clusion of a day of royal welcome as
le journeyed through the state of
Colorado from Glenwood Springs. All
the towns along the Denver and Rio
Grande railroad, over which the presi
dential party traveled, centered their
population at the stations to greet tbe
president and every evidence of
hearty good will was seen and heard.
The crowning event came last night.
in the form of a banquet tendered
President Roosevelt by the Denver
chamber of commerce at the Brown
Palace hotel. This was perhaps the
most sumptuous affair over held in
tho state, and the president was visi
bly pleased by the picturo that un
folded itself to his eyes as he entered
the banquet hall. Everything known
to the decorator's art was called into
vse to embellith tho commodious ban
Promptly at. 9:30 o'clock the last
course of the elaborate menu was fin
ished and President James S. Temple
cf the chamber of commerce called
the guests to order and introduced
Chief Justice Gabbert, who acted as
toastmaster. In a brief speech Judge
Gabbert introduced the president, who
arose amid cheers and applause. He
responded to the toast. "The Nation."
After discussing various questions
of interest, the president took up the
subject of railway rate legislation as
follows: "I want to say a word as to
a governmental policy in which I feel
that the whole, country ought to take
t great Interest and which is itself
tut part of a general policy into which
I think our government must go. I
speak of the policy of extending the
powers of the interstate commerce
commission and of giving it particu
larly the power to fix rates and to
Lave the rates which it fixes go into
effect practically at once. As I say,
that represents In my mind part of
vhat should be the general policy of
life country, the policy of giving not
tn the state, but to the national gov
ernment increased supervisory and
regulatory power over corporations.
When you give a nation that power,
remember that harm and not good
will come from the giving unless you
give It with a firm determination not
only to get justice for yourselves, but
to do justice to others; that you will
be as zealous to do justice to tbe
railroads as to exact justice from
them. As bas been well set forth by
the attorney general. Mr. Moody, in
his recent masterly argument present
ed to the senate Investigating commit
tee which Is investigating tbe matter,
the legislators have the right, and, as
I believe, the right of conferring those
powers upon some executive body."
He was followed by Governor Jesse
McDonald, who spoke of "The State,"
and Mayor Robert W. Speer. who re
sponded to the toast, 'The City." Sen
Etor Thomas M. Patterson then spoke
to the toast "The President"
At the conclusion of the speech
making patriotic airs were played by
the orchestra, the 500 participants in
tbe banquet singing"in chorus. Then
all surrounded the president and es
corted him to his rooms In the hotel,
where they shouted "Good night." and
cheered for several minutes. Shortly
afterward the president and his party
were driven to the station. The presi
dential special left ,for Chicago at 7
o'clock this morning;

cays: According to dispatches to the
admiralty, brought to Saigon on the
hospital ship Kostroma, tho junction

fenced in communications that have
passed between the British foreign
secretary and the French ambassador
ia London, as well as between the
British ambassador in Paris and For

Paris telegraphs: "It is rumored in
Russian circles here that the Japa
nese flagship Mlkasa was lost in the
Straits of Korea a week ago."
London, May 9. The correspondent
at Singapore of the Daily Mail tele
