' 'It is becoming apparent that the dste fixed some time ago by competent obnervers for the adjournment of con gress near June 20 may have to be pushed considerably forward. The form asoumed by the meat inspection question under the reports transmitted by the president puts the matter In s new and unexpected light and stirs np Interests and controversial forces which will consume a good aeal of time which did not enter Into earlier calcu lations. If congressional committees sre to go to Chicago to make a person ally conducted investigation, congress msy ss well prepsre Ut celebrste the Fourth of July st Washington. Unanticipated further delays are also developing in the adjustment of differences between the house and the senste. The statehood conference bids fair to eventuate in a break, to such an extent that threats are re ported from Senator Foraker and oth ers representing the senste majority to attach an enabling nH for the inde pendent admission of Oklahoma as a rider to one of he appropriation bills, which would Inevitably protract the deadlock. The hitches that have oc curred in the rate bill conferences are likewise time consumers. Meanwhile the appropriations, which hsd been de ferred to an unusually late stage ot the session, sre going forward slowly. So far, too, they have been kept in the way of the pure food bill which came from the senate many weeks ago, and the tide of public sentiment pushed on by the Chicsgo meat disclosures could not go much further without com pelling the house to act on that bill also. With one full week of June already gone, congress will have to work over time and with unprecedented rapidity If it gets into position to adjourn any where near the date upon which hope was fixed, no matter how eager con gressmen may be to get back home to construct and repair fences. FAlLVRK OF THE FtTlLlPPlM: BILL. The Philippine bill may now be dis missed as dead for the resent session, although it hsd early passed the house and there had been some hope of re viving it in spite of the summary man ner in which it was squelched in com mittee In the senate. Nevertheless the measure, aiming to carry out a liberal and helpful policy toward the people of our new far eastern dependency ad mittedly in need of aid. is one that Is bound to come under the lime light ss soon ss other pressing matters nearer home are disposed of. The abolition or. reduction of Import duties on com modities In which the Philippines sre especially Interested does not properly raise the broad tariff question at nil, because they are under the sovereignty of the United States and in a substan tial sense s part of the commonwealth. It is of course a subject within the jurisdiction of congress,-but no meas ure hss come before thlsWsaton which had been the subject of such 'thorough and prolonged previous consideration. The bill was an administration meas ure In the sense that naturally the Ad ministration had taken extreme pains to prepare and Illuminate the subject for the benefit of congress. Secretary Taft came into the cabinet from a notably successful administration In the Philippine islands, and under his direction s bill was drawn represent ing the results of experience on the ground. The subject was then elabo rately studied In the house committee and the bill revised and improved be fore it was sent to the -enate. A matter so important in its bearing both upon the welfare and upon the sentiments of the eight million Fili pinos under our tutelage cannot be finally foreclosed nor long held up by a mere committee of ene branch of congress. PRtSlDKXT CA&SAtT AMD PUBLICITY. The result of the investigation which President Cassatt promises the author ities of the Pennsylvania Central will make of their own doings in regard to the acceptance of gratuities from fa vored patrons of the road la discounted in advance. The, public would not be quieted by such a proceeding in this esse any more than they were when the Insurance scandal reached such a stage that the big life companies be gan to appoint committees to "investi gate" themselves. The partial Inquiry before the Inter stste Commerce commission into - the one matter of the' relations between the road's officers snd sgents and coal companies demonstrates a widespread system of. wrongful practice. The commission's net has caught offenders wherever it has been dropped. The officers and agents, almost without ex ception when Interrogated under oath, have testified not only that they them selves accepted gifts of stock snd other gratuities, in some cases aggregating hundreds of thousands of dollars, but that their predecessors , and others in like places did the same. It is shown, in short, to have been a. general cus tom, and to have -prevailed even in headquarters among officers who daily touched elbows with President Cassatt himself. ' ; That the existence of such a. system could have been unknown all these years to the topmost authorities in charge of the road, even if it be as sumed tbst they had no active part or interest in it. Is simply Inconceivable. One of the assistants to President Caaaatt, who confe&sea to immense stork holdings acquired by gift, testi fied that the latter must have known the facts as they 'awere generally known. . , . .. It Is not' surprising, therefor, that ths entire Pennsylvania press is' pro testing that a more conclusive sod fx- t tensive investigation, one that shall jbe authoritative and ruulcal like that of the Armstrong special legislative committee In New York Into life Insur ance, ahull be made covering all great classes of freight as well ss that of coal. What Is already known is con clusive for showing that more and all must be in like manner known. The 1 emphatic demand of the republican platform just adopted to this effect will, it is asserted, be repeated In the platforms of the other parties, and It Is being daily reinforced by othen forms of expression of public opinion. It must be apparent to all observers, that no effort of self-investigation In this case can avail to stave off or gloss over the results of complete official publicity. If that be the purpose. The matter has gone so far thst It cannot stop till the whole subject has been turned Inside out. THS JAIL FffgDI.VO COXTBACT. The recommendations of the grand Jury report brings it back to the county board and sheriff to attempt to reach a new and more satisfactory arrange ment for the feeding and maintenance of inmates of the county Jail. The grand Jury practically endorses the position taken by The Bee snd voiced In the county board by Com missioners Solomon and Brunlng, that the contract for feeding the prisoners should be separate and distinct from the purchase of Jail supplies, bedding, clothing, etc. The order of the board fixing a lump sum per day to cover both the food for the prisoners and the supplies for the jail has proved unsatisfactory from all points of view, just as was to have been expected. The sheriff has never Indicated his ac ceptance of the proposition and has been withholding his bills with a view to claiming the maximum statutory compensation as of right, while the complaints of Inadequate supplies have been found and verified by the grand Jury. The people of Douglas county can not afford to have the present jail sit uation continued indefinitely. The county should have -a settlement up to date and start out on a new deal, letting the county buy the jail sup plies, as heretofore, and entering into a feeding contract at a reasonable price, that will ' neither allow the sheriff to make a big profit and yet enable him to furnish wholesome meals without loss. The best wsy to arrive at the price woula be by a show ing of the actual cost of the present jail meals, with a reasonable margin for variation of the market and for a fair profit. It was never the intention of the lawmakers that the jail feeding con tract chould be a source of big rev enue to the sheriff nor that he should be called upon to go down Into his own pocket to feed the prisoners in his custody. ' : The "antis" could not make a more palpable confession of their weakness than by their attempt ' to Juggle the ballot forr the coming' 'primary In the hope of sneaking a few delegates under the tent by wholesale disfranchisement of the voters. Their alleged com promise offer to divide the delegation was an admission that they were beaten, because no one ever suspected them of being willing to give up half a delegation so long as they had the faintest hope that they could get It all. Not being able to work their bluff for half a delegation, they proclaim their willingness now to tske two or three delegates, or any number that they can get by stealth. If they believe what they assert, that Edward Rosewater cannot command the backing of a ma jority of the republicans of Douglas county for his senatorial candidacy, why don't they come out In the open with a delegation tor their preferred candidate and make a square fight? The county store makes a showing of considerable saving on the cost of supplies doled out during the past year as compared with the year before. It ought to make a showing on the right side of the ledger under conditions that have prevailed here with a mild winter, allowing every ablebodted per son to keep employed without appeal ing for relief to the county. Had the county store failed to show a material .saving with such prosperous times there would have been good grounds for a rigid investigation. Douglas county doubtless needs larger Jail facilities, but it Is useless to spend any money In enlarging the present county jail. When the time comes a new jail should be built in some other location, possibly in con nection with a criminal court building, and the Jail should have a work house attachment, where prisoners can be made to earn at least their own keep instead ot boarding at the expense of the taxpayers as now. People are cautioned on penalty of being called to account in the police court, to put on their politest manner when the school census enumerator comes around and manifests his curios ity about the number of children of school age harbored on the premises. It might not be a bad idea, however, to caution the school census enumera tors to put on their politest manners, too, when making their rounds. What has become ot all the evi dence of Illegal registration and fraudulent voting gathered by those Imported Chicago detectives? The grand Jury has met and adjourned without bringing In a single Indict ment for illegal voting at either the primary election or the regular elec tion. It seems strange that a contractor from Illinois should get the Job of overhauling and reburnlshlng the wood work in the federal building at Omaha. The only rational eiplana- tion Is tbst local rontrsctors and me chanics have all they can do In new buildings without bothering with such work. lie eeH It law.

Kraater Cobnrn af Kansaa. Kansaa City Journal. It Is aafe to a.y there will be very little bitterness mixed with the disappointment among the unsuccessful candldatea for the senatorial appointment. Mr. Coburn Is not a politician and represents no faction.. It Is fitting that thla honor should come to him after. the long years he has spent In building up the Interests of Kansaa and adding to the prosperity and happiness of Its people. It la Juat possible that the peo ple wilt be so well pleased with his appoint ment that they may conclude to extend his term of. service six rears longer. As It Is, not only Is Mr. Coburn to be con gratulated on thla fine appreciation of hta merits, but Governor Hoch la to be felici tated upon the wisdom of lile choice. OKE POIHT OVERLOOKED.

The launching of the veteran Lorenso Crounse of Douglas county as a candidate for I'nlted Slates senator la probably more local in Its news importance just now than It Is of atate importance. While the ex governor haa a hoat of' frlenda out over the atate, the fact that hla aon-ln-law la a prospective candidate for the aama office on the other aide of the house, log ically or llloglcally, will be decidedly against him, and it Is not at all Improb able that, as aoon aa the impetus of the launching has been exhauated, the Crounse boom wtll be anchored then and there, to go no further.

The World-Herald launched the Crounae boom Saturday morning In true democratic style.

BITS Of IIIVJTOt I.IFF.. Miner Scenes and tneldenta Skelrked aa the The Inalienable right of petition fcr whlrh John Qulncy Adams thundered lr the way-back days haa been worked to the limit this year. The strenuous activi ties of congress brought to that hmly a great variety of petitions, some couched In humble tones, some appeals. othe com mands. A noticeable feature of the deluge Is the systematic Industry of petition makers. The earmarks of their act'vl'y are visible In sameness of language an.t copied nimes. It Is not an ea:gcritnn to say that of the hundreds of thousands of petitions that All committee rooms, fie speaker's room, the vice president's room and nearly every available niche In the eapltol. W per cent are the marhlne-maf'e article and have been obtained by a sys tematic, use of club and lodge registers, labor and patriotic organisations and pos sibly t per cent are the bona fide (spre slona of individuals who have signed their own names. Thla session the greatest number of petl tlons have been presented in favor o? what are known as labor bills, such ss the anti Injunctlon bill, the employers' liability hi!', the clght-hotir bill, the Immigration h)' and the pure food bill. On the railroad bills the petitions have nearly all. if not all. been Inspired by Mr. Fuller, represent ing the Railway Employes' association. For the Immigration bill thousands upon thousnnda of petitions have been presented all alike snd the signatures In esch bear ing the same characteristics. Mr. Taylor, representing the Junior Order I'nlted Amer ican Mechanics, haa an office in Washing ton and by using the vast chain of lodges throughout the country he haa been ohle to amother senators and members of the nouse witn petitions, each a counterpnrt of the other. In like manner the nntt Bmoot petitions were procured. President Roosevelt haa an account at the Rlggs National bank In thla city. The bookkeepers have no end of trouble keep. Ing the president's balance straight, and. In fact, are never able tu bring the ac count up to date. This Is because so many people who get checks Jrom the president fall to cash them, preferring to preserve the checks as Souvenirs. This fad bn the part of the autograph hunting public saves several hundred dol lars for the president every year. A sur prisingly large number of peraons are will, Ing to pay from II to 110 for an uncuahed check of the president's. Consequently when drafts are Issued for small amounta over the president's signature they are apt to fall into the hands of collectors. There la a standing order for small Roosevelt checks at the stores of tradespeople who supply the White House. The result of all this la that there Is always a large number of Roosevelt checks unaccounted for. so that the bookkeepers at the Rlgga bank are never able accurately to settle his account A few months ago the president appointed a committee to make a thorough Investlga. tion of the business methods of each of the several departments at Washington with a view to ridding them of some of the red tape ways of doing things. Secretary Bonaparte, on being inter viewed by this committee, told the follow ing story, which beautifully Illustrates the free use of red tape In the g-overnment service: "One of the naval officers on a certain ship desired to chsnge a thermometer from one side of the vessel to the other, assigning very good reasons for doing so' Thla could not be done, according to naval regulation, however, until he had carried the matter to the ahlp's commander, and through him to me. I readily consented to the proposed change, which cost Just SS cents- cents for the postage and station ery and. 3. cents for -the nail and' the wear and tear on the hammer.',' An official of one of the departments at Washington aays that whenever he en countera an unknown person of distin guished appearance he la reminded of an amusing experience of the private secretary to a late secretary of war. It appear, that thi, private aecretarv. before he got well acquainted, paid llttio attention to persons he did not know to be of importance. One day there entered the ante-room a member of the cabinet whom the private secretary had never Been befora. Being Ignored by the secretary for a conaiderable time, the distinguished v. Iter finally entered the room of the head of the department unannounced. Undoubt edly he made complaint In the matter, for the next day the private aecretarv received a reprimand from his chief. The very next day one of the first per sons to enter the private secretary'- room waa a distinguished looking old man with a long, patriarchal beard. Bearing In mind his experience of the day before the prl rate secretary received his visitor with every mark of conalderation. With a polite bow he offered a chair to the old gentle man. who accepted it. not without an ex preeslon of Borne wonderment, s fact the private secretary himself observed. The latter aeated himself opposite hi. dlstln gulshed caller and, with hi. most engaglnjr smlla. asked: "And now, sir." what can I do for you todsi-7" "Oh. nothing much." replied the man with the patriarchal beard. 'Tve dropped In to wind the clocks." . While traveling from Pittsburg to Wash ington a few days ago Congressman Harry Maynard of Virginia was robbed of his watch and money In a sleeping car. Next night ha left the capital on a night boat for Norfolk. Just as he got on board he found that he was moneyless once more, though he had caahed a falr-alxed check that morning. Then he yelled loudly for the key to hla stateroom. "I'm going to lock myaelf In." he said, "and see If I can get to Norfolk without losing anything else." Half an hour later, after the' boat had swung down the stream, the door of Maynard's stateroom opened and he j ,h0l,ted for porter. "See If you can find my grip, said the Virginia statesman. The porter couldn't find It, for Maynard had left It In the cab which brought him to the wharf. Puring a heavy rainstorm on Friday last, while the senate was In executive aesslon, a stream of water dripped Into the cham ber from a leak In the skylight.
