THE JrMOi.VflM.V f.Y THE WOODPILE.
From all the gyrations and contor
tions which the old ring of discredited
politicians Is making to creste a di
version from the main issue Involved
In the impending senatorial contest in
Nebraska It Is plain that there Is a gen
tleman of very dark hue hidden un
der the lumber. If this black rutin
were exposed to view he would be
found to be nothing less than a wily
scheme to override that part of the re
publican convention call that provides
for the endorsement of a candidate for
United Slates senator and to relegate
the senatorshlp back to -the legislature
where the Influence of the corporations
and the manipulations of the lobbyists
could get In the work for some one who
could never expect a popular endorse
ment at the polls.
The attempt to precipitate a dis
turbance here in Douglas county, when
scratched beneath the surface, dis
closes itself to be simply a part of this
concerted effort of a few corporation
politicians seeking to oppose a popu
lar choice by getting behind anyone
whom they think they might use to
corner a few votes against the nomi
nation of a senator in the state con
vention. All pretended compromise
propositions have had but this one ob
ject In view, the original compromise
propositions hsvlng been baldly one
for a delegation from Douglas county
unpledged on senator, but committed
to the sole plank of opposition to con
Republicans throughout Nebraska,
therefore, must be on their guard
against secret machinations to over
ride their will. Nebraska republicans
have declared over and over again In
favor of. the election of United States
senators by direct popular vote, and
while The Bee would have preferred to
have liad the choice of senator sub
mitted to a direct primary as the clos
est approximation to the direct vote
the convention nomination can be
made to register the popular choice If
the rank and file enforce their prefer
ence at every stage of caucus and in

THE MADRID ANARCHIST ATROCITY.
The sense of the civilized world re
volts at the slaughter of a score of in
nocent people in an attempt to murder
the young king and queen of Spain aa
they were returning from the wedding
ceremony at church. It is a startling
revelation of the atrocious, spirit of
. It is sacrilege to associate that spirit
with the spirit of liberty and reform
which in all ages has sought to rem
edy governmental abuse. 'Anarchy lays
iU bloody axe at the very roots of
civilized society and springs from the
most wanton impulses of savagery. It
acknowledges no distinctions in exist
ing social order, whether it be dem
ocratic, aristocratic or autocratic, but
would strike down with bullet, dag
ger, poison or dynamite the faithful
president of a free republic with the
same hideous malevolence exhibited in
the streets of Madrid, where the in
temlad victims were the royal bride
and groom on their wedding day.
Trio choice of such a day for such a
crime will only emphasize in public at
tention the diabolism of the plot and
the tiesjwriJtlon of the anarchist cult.
The assumption of sheer madness
would be a welcome one for. the good
na'io of humanity, but even that as
sumption removes none of the difficul
ties of society in dealing practically
with the problem of bomb and dagger

THE PRESIDENTS TRAVELING
An item 1n the pending sundry cft-ll
appropriation providing 12 5,000 to de
fray the traveling expenses of the
president, at his discretion, will meet
with public approbation. Our own is
probably the only great government
which makes no adequate provision for
such expenses of its chief executive
so that he has been practically forced,
up to this time, to depend upon the
courtesies of the railroad companies.
Every president from Washington
down has made formal progresses
through the country. There are co
gent reasons of public policy Why the
head of the nation should thus .occa
sionally appear among the people, not
only stimulating their patriotism, but
also acquiring that knowledge of men
and Interests which can often be
gained only through direct personal
observation, and which is so especially
Important in a government by and for
the people. . President Roosevelt, too,
has notably shown bow vital a force
the president may become in shaping
public sentiment on matters of state.
Under existing conditions the stated
allowance to the president is insuffi
clent for such expenses, and even If
he were a rich man he ought not to
have to bear a burden which, be
ing a public burden, should fall on the
public. Whether the interstate com
merce law shall be amended so as to
prohibit outright the president. In com
mon with other government officials,
from accepting free transportation or
not, public sentiment Is such ss no
longer to permit the chief executive to
depend upon corporation gratuity,

riers stand ready to extend It. and

suspicion of susceptibility to improper

THE STATEHOOD QVESTIoN.
The agreement of the conference
committee leaves the statehood ques
tion, so far as Oklahoma Is concerned,
practically where It was a year ago,
and It remains for the house to de
cide whether it will permit admission
without regard to Arizona and New
But there has been a distinct
change of public opinion in favor of
Oklahoma in . the meantime. The
claim of its fitness for statehood is one
of the strongest that has ever been
presented by every territory seeking
admission. With Indian Territory,
which Is Included in the limits of the
proposed state, Oklahoma has now
over a million and a quarter inhab
itants, or a population exceeding that
of Nebraska, and at the same time it
presents every characteristic of a solid
and progressive commonwealth. In
variety of resources and Industries
none of the younger western states
surpasses It and many of the old states
are far behind it.
Sentiment in congress for acting on
the Oklahoma case separately has been
much stronger at this session than
ever before, but at the outset it was
sufficient to control only the senate.
That Its Influence Is growing Is shown
by the agreement of the house con
ferees to the senate plan of an en
This leaves Arizona and New Mex
ico to be dealt with independently,
and the people of the two territories
would, under the conference scheme,
decide whether they will be merged
into one state or continue in their
present territorial status. There is
strong opposition to their admission as
separate states and the president him
self Is believed to be adverse to It.
In no event can the admission of
Oklahoma be very long delayed, while
It Is possible that Arizona and New
Mexico may remain territories indefi
CONORESS AND THE CANAL.
It Is the general opinion at Wash
ington that congress will reach no con
clusion at this session aa to the type
of the Panama canal. While the house
is represented to be firmly set against
the sea level plan, the tendency in the
senate ha lately been strongly in the
contrary direction, and at any rate to
be sufficient to block legislation requir
ing a lock canal.
Chief Engineer Stevens, who has
lately arrived from the Isthmus, is
strongly insisting that a point has cow
been reached at which decision can no
longer be postponed without Interrupt
ing operations and causing an army ot
men to be laid off. Nearly two months
ago Secretary Taf t appeared person
ally before the senate committee to
challenge their attention In most em
phatic and express manner to the fact
that the great enterprise was rapidly
approaching the point which the en
gineer in charge declares to be now
actually at. hand. In short, the canal
plant has been Installed and the ma
chinery for excavation and transport
ing the material will have to stand idle
unless the kind of canal is settled.
The only alternative is for the pres
ident to decide, under the powers which
It Is generally believed the original
Spooner act confers upon . him, con
gress falling to dispose by legislation
of the Issue, between lock and sea
level canal. It is a decision of the
greatest importance, but the president
has made it known that he stands
ready promptly to accept the respon
sibility if congress leaves the mat
ter open at adjournment. As it is also
known that he will order work on the
lock plan, the upshot of all the pro
ceedings of congress regarding the
subject will be simply to shunt a heavy
burden over onto fhe president's
Webster, Greene and Wattles have

RESTRAINING EXPRESS COMPANIES.
Strongest of Inside Corporations In
It Is clear now that any attempt to ex

provisions of the rate bilt must result
In failure, since public attention If fully
aroused to the matter of the Hepburn
Cooper episode In the house. Whether
the exclusion of the express companies
from the original bill was by design or
by oversight, the senate corrected the
error without provoking any serious op
position. Even the veteran. Senator Piatt,
who has been the guardian angel of these
corporations so far as the legislation of
congress la concerned, swallowed the ob
noxious amendment without a grimace.

well aa that of the public. There Is no
question that the express companies would
have been driven off many a line of

M. Labouchere, in London Truth, directs
attention to the anomalous position occu
pied by English married women In Hong
Kong. He tells of a recent caae in which
an Engllah woman lost a great part of
her fortune through ignorance of the fact
that none of the recent amendmenta of
English law In regard to married women's
property have been extended to that col
ony. A married woman there Is still un
able, it appears, to own any property, and
Is still without any right to anything she
may earn, or receive from Investments, or
even In the shape of presents from friends
or relatives. Everything she owns be
longs absolutely to her husband, and In
the event of his death Intestate she be
comes entitled only to a share In the es
tate, though it may be derived entirely
from her. Mr. Labouchere comments upon
the Inconveniences and Injustices likely to
result from such a state of affairs, and
wonders why It is permitted to exist In a
crown colony. He then adds, character
istically: "It seems to me that advocates
of women's rights would be much better
occupied In agitating against palpable In
justice of thla kind than la holding dem

Tax dodging ia difficult In Rome, ac
cording to the Dundee Advertiser. The aa
aeasors of the income tax In the city of
Rome are now called upon to tax Ameri
can visitors on the basis of their apparent
Income. All sorts of reasons are alleged
for the existence of "concealed wealth."
One American visitor was heavily taxed on
the ground that his diamond rings were
of such a value as to stamp him unde
niably as a millionaire. He repudiated the
statement, when It was triumphantly
pointed out to him that his name appeared
dally In a journal which Inserted "fashion
notes" only on payment. Another visitor
was taxed on the basis of the number of
letteia which he received from home.
Thla, SHld the asseaaor, declared him to
b a man of substance. He retorted that
the letters contained small sums of money,
and, to ills amassment, he was met by
the counter-assertion that the contents of
the letters were known. A woman was
taxed on the ground that she mixed with
other people who were taxed at a cer
tain level, and "Americans regard equality
In wealth as social equality." She at

are rapidly turning toward Edward Rose
water as the logical candidate for fnlled
States senstor, and from the tone of the
newspapers the same condition seems true
all over the state. The enemies of Mr.
Rosewater urge against him tthst he has
sometimes fought the ticket, snd this Is
doubtless true often to his credit, be It
said. He Is the pioneer Independent
writer snd voter and seldom. If ever, has
ha given his support where he could not
give a good reason for so doing. That
his reasons were sufficient Is evident by
the fact thst the voters usually endorsed
his Ideas st the polls snd defeated the
Influences he fought against. We do not
presume to anaylse his motives In all of
these contests, but we do know that the
Individual who stands highest In the public
confidence and the one who does most for
his own psrty is the man who boldly
fights bad methods and bad candidates In
his own ranks Instead of standing for
everything the "mschlnes" dictate. Mr.
Rosewater belongs to this class. He is a
fighter and a winner, which Is one reason
why so many politicians are opposed to
him. His experience In public service
would enable him to perfom the duties of
senator with all the efficiency of one who
had served In that body for years.
rkaare for Reciprocity.
Bancroft Blade (rep.).
If Senator Millard will now do as much
for Rosewater as the latter did for the
senator he will be merely paying back
what he borrowed.
Man of Brnlaa and Power.
Alexandria Argus (rep.).
With Edward Rosewater in the senate
Nebraska would be represented by a man
of brains and power. But Mr. Rosewater
was too late in coming out, aa Norris
Brown will get the plum.
Record la His Guaranty.
Oerlng Courier (rep.).
There Is something remarkable about the
way impetus has accrued to the Rosewater
senatorial boom, in view of the absence
of that gentleman In a foreign country.
It Is now assured that the contest Is be
tween Brown 'and Rosewater, and since
It Is apparent that the Rosewater senti
ment Is not machine made he has an ele
gant standing. However much the Omaha
editor's course In various political mat
ters msy be criticised, no one can ques
tion his sincerity, and his record along
this very line will be a guarantee tht
his service later on will be free from dicta
tion and In the interest of the people ex
actly aa his Judgment prompts.
Rosewater Stock Advancing.
Humphrey Democrat (dem ).
Edward Rosewater's senatorial stock has
advanced wonderfully the past few days.

republican nominee It would disarm the

Howelis Journal (dem).
John L. Webster has pulled out of the
senstprlal race and It Is said that his
strength will go to Edward Rosewater.

Stuart Ledger (rep.).
Rosewster has no need of Mr. Brown's
press bureau. He has the free and hearty
support of the press minus the bureau.

I went to a modern doctor to learn what

I'd lately been off my fodder, and life wan

He felt of my pulse, ss they all do, he
gazed at my outstretched tongue;
He took off my coat and wesklt and harked

He fed me a small glass penstalk with
figures upon the side.
And this waa hla final verdict when all of
my marks he'd spied:
"Do you eat fried eggs? Then quit It.
Tou don't? Then hurry and eat 'em
Along with some hay that was cut in May;
There are no other foods to beat 'em
