William J. Broatch has not laid down

room for mistake. Brorttch would go

A.nniBt tt Hennlnes. on the other
hand, presents himself not only upon
thp creiitnble record he has made as
treasurer for two terms, but he
occupies the middle ground between the
two extremes. To use the words of his
own announcement, he "will stand for
a ri.tlorml, equitable and conservative
enforcement of the law," but "does not
believe It to be to the interest of our
city to return either to the wide open
town or to the old Puritanical idea and

further, "Being a firm believer in law,
decency and order, I am opposed to
anything in the nature of a reign of
lawlessness and crime, and ns chief ex-
ecutlve would do everything In my
power to keep professional criminals as

apply common sense to the enforcement

to getting the desired results.

IOWA ANTI-PASS MS ASVRK.
Tho passago by unanimous vote In the
Iowa senate of an anti-pass meusuro
prohibiting railroads, telegraph and tele
phone companies from Issuing passes
and franks to state and national oin
clals is the latest among many notable
signs of the strength of public senti-
raeut demanding divorce of our poll
tics from undue railroad influence. The
Iowa senate bill, whose scope will cer
tainly not be narrowed before final en

although Its provisions do not coter jui

This is the objective toward which
publio atteutton everywhere Is now de
cisively directed, and state legislatures
in their action are rapidly making
pmgress toward it. It is significant
that while the degree of legislative
progress, dependent, or course, upon
'ocal conditions, varies among the
states which have had recent oppor
tunlty to act, in no state has there
been either Indifference or retrogression
as to the pass nuisance, and severs

that the great work shall be completed
or public confidence that the present ad
ministration is doing, aud will do, all
that under th conditions could be done.
It is becoming clear that the diffi
culties which have been eucouutered
were inevitable. They were greater
than were anticipated, and it is easy
now to see how misunderstanding, and
to some extent conflict, which have con
tributed to temporary confusion In the
public mind, have arisen between two
groups of officii! Is having the work In
hand those concerned with its engineering-
aud those concerned with Its
sanitary phase. The former did not

went to the Isthmus eager to dig the
canal were Impatient during the elabor
ate and painstaking movements of
the corps of medical scientists, not re
alizing how vitally necessary thorough
sanitation was to the efficiency and
economy of the work. The testimony
before the senate committee suggests
how far the irritation which has arisen
extends, the same probably being the
real cause to which Chief Engineer Wal
lace's dissatisfaction was due.
But the magnitude and value of this
and similar branches cf the work n
ready accomplished by the government
on the Isthmus are now fairly beginning
to be appreciated. The effect will appear
more conclusively when actual construc
tion work Is in full swing. The country
will soon understand, if it does not now,
that these very preparations, which,
while they were under way were the
occasion of so much impatience and
doubt are the ground for increasing
confidence and renewed determination
that the canal shall be built.
JfOr SO SURPBI81XQ.
One of the delegates from Nebraska
to the divorce conference, which re
cently met in Washington, discussing
its proceedings upon his return, is
quoted as follows:
I was much surprised at the ground taken
by the women delegates o the conference.
Almost without, exception they were ex-
remely radical In their views. They
favored throwing down the bars and grant
ing divorce right and left without any re
strictions. There were eight women dele
That women should hold an attitude
more favorable to divorce than men is
not so surprising when past history and
existing conditions are taken into con
sideration, although there is no more
reason why women should favor unre
stricted divorce than men. If accurate
divorce statistics were nt hand they
would doubtless show that practically
nine-tenths of the divorces in this coun
try at least are procured by women and
that even when separations are sought
by the men the decree Is usually al
lowed to be given to the women with a
chivalrous view of leaving her in posi
tion to show that she is not the party
The Institution of divorce on the ap
plication of the injured wife as distinct
from the biblical divorce allowed to the
husband, who alone was entitled to put
aside the wife, is unquestionably one of
the greatest single steps in the eman
cipation of woman. Women naturally
regard divorce as the safety valve of
their sex against abuse and the mere
possibility of divorce cannot fall to ex
ercise a potential Influence for the pro
tection of the wife against mistreat
ment by the husband. Women as a
rule are thoroughly convinced that there
are conditions of family life that con
stitute much worse evils than divorce
no matter how greatly it is to be depre
cated. At the same time women ought to be
impressed, if anything, more than the
men, of the desirability of limitations
011 divorce for the benefit of the chil
dren of mlsmnted pairs. Where the
Jarring husband and wife alone are di
rectly concerned their divorce cuts com
paratively small figure, except for the
bud example it sets, but where the fu
ture of innocent children is clouded by
a separation cf father and mother their
rights have a first claim upon the inter
vention of the law. Surely the mothers,
more than any other members of the
community, must deprecate the un
necessary disruption of families by di
vorce, and nlso the operation of divorce
mills as commercial undertakings under
encouragement of wide-open divorce
laws. It is no wonder, however, that
the women find no f.ivor for any effort
to close the doors to divorce to them
completely or to make it more difficult
for them to open when there is real
reason for divorce..
THE STATEHOOD QUESTION,
To the proposition of the house, which
Is in substance to admit Oklahoma and
Indian Territory as one state and Art
zona und New Mexico as one state, sub
ject to thc approval by the people of
the latter two territories on a vote on
their merger, the senate, by its action
Friday, responded with the counter
proposition to admit only one new state,
composed of Oklahoma and Indian Ter
ritory, leaving Arizona and New Mex
ico in their territorial stutus. The adop
tion by the senate of the amendment
striking all reference to Arizona aud
New Mexico out of the bill is not con
clusive that Oklahoma will be admitted
to statehood at this session, ulthougb by
universal acknowledgment that terri
tory Is abundantly, and even pre-eminently,
qualified therefor. In the Flfty
sevcuth and Fifty-eighth congresses bills
passed one branch of congress only to
fail in the other through disagreement
between them as to the terms of ad
mission, and there may be chance of
final disagreement in the ureseut In
stance. Tho influences which, have thus so far
rendered abortive effort to admit the re
maining territories to statehood are vari
ous. It is no novelty that partisanship
should play a part In the deposition of
such questions, although as to Okla
homa particularly there seem to be,
either In the exlstiug general state of
politics or In the particular conditions
of that commuulty. little reason why it
should, uow be so. Successive repub-
llcan netional conventions have declared
for the admission of the territories aa
soon as they are competent for state
hood. Thcre may be grounds for doubt
of the present comiietency of Arlsona
and New Mexico separately, or, per
haps, In combination, but there is none
aa to Oklahoma. The vote In the house,
where an Insurrection was organized, as
well as in the vote In the senate, re
vealed irreconcilable differences even
among the republicans touching the bill
disposing of all the territories, although
the bill was put forth under the regular
party authority and was understood to
be acceptable to the president.
Back of partisan and like considera
tions a very potent, although not con
spicuously acknowledged, force operat
ing on this question in all Its complica
tions is sectional interest, the east being
distinctly and arbitrarily hostile to In
crease of western political influence
through the multiplication of western
states. As frequently before in the
cases of other western territories, so
now this force has had Its effect In the
delays and complications regarding the
remaining territories, and even In the
form of the pending bill and the pro
ceedings reitardlng it.

clergymen have taken strong ground
against the practice of poor people wasting

effective. Almost with his dying breath he
asked for a simple funeral without any
mark of mourning whatever. His request
was complied with and his parishioners fol
lowed him to the grave In trolley cars, at
their own expense. If they follow the good
priest's example and arrange their own
funerals aa simply, much money now
wasted on senseless ostentation will be
saved for needy survivors.

What Is truth that through the ages man
should rifle earth and star
Seeking ever In the unknown where Its
mystic fountains are,
For the law of righteous living, for th
love that shall not die.
While the soul has aspirations to be glori
fied on high?
What Is truth that in the distance it should
bias with holy light,
Beating back the hosts of darkness In the
world's enfolding night,
Making man a nobler creature, giving'
states a wiser aim.
Giving virtue, knowledge, valor, each a
bright, Immortal name?
Lo, the world la ever changing, and the
new Is ever old,
And who fight with human progress is a
And the truth la what we make it by the
light of that great love
Which forever lifts the planet toward the
singing stars above.
Truth Is simple as the sermons nature tells
us on our way,
Gnt aa the thought of brothers who were
It Is plain as honest faces that betoken
hearts so kind, ,
They are hands unto th weary, seeing
eyes unto the blind;
It Is beautiful as morning when the world
awakes to Joy,
And life's golden expectations thrill the
eager heart ct boy;
It Is lastlms aa the cliff rock that forever
fronts the sea,
Lasting as the ocean waters that shall
wash the cliff rock free;
And although It wrings emotion from the
life that suffers long,
Though It girds the loins of labor for the
battle fierce and strong;
Truth Is ever what we make It In th light
of love and peaoe, ,
Help and hope unto the tolling who would
give the soul Increase1.
