By raising against proposed Inspec
tion 'legislation of tha constitutional
point that congress is precluded from
Interference in matters comprehended
within what Is known ss the police
power of the several states, one good
result has been securedi in more effi
cient exertion of local police author
ity without narrowing the national
sanitary restrictions.
Whatever may be said as to state
police power, It Is conceded thst
congress has complete and indeed ex
clusive constitutional power to regu
late commerce between the states and
with foreign nations and therefore to
prohibit absolutely such commerce or
transportation of meats, canned goods
and' packing house products not bear
ing the government label, "inspected
and passed." Such inspection, It con
stitutional, can require practically
evtery condition that could be en
forced under any exertion -of state po
lice power.
Practically such legislation nder
the Interstate commerce power must
also go a long way to control - the
character of meats consumed In the
states where they are prepared, be
cause if sanitary conditions must be
established in a large packing plant
doing business outside of the state,
those conditions would In a measure
protect all the meat treated there for
whatever market. Nor would the do
mestic consumers long tolerate a meat,
supply Inferior to that sent outside
the state or handled under circum
stances open to suspicion. The plenary
resources of the police power are at
hand to supplement as to the local
supply any evasion of the national re
strictions as to Interstate and foreign
commerce, saying nothing of the reme
dial potency of mere publicity.
While no one defends any authenti
cated abuse in the Chicago packing
industries and it is conceded that some
conditions exist requiring summary
eradication, indiscriminate denuncia
tion abroad of American food products
has excited Just resentment. There is
no doubt that those countries in which
such misrepresentation is most ex
treme are at least as much addicted
to adulteration and defilement of
foods. The elaborate report of the
chief sanitary , inspector in London
therefore comes as a swift retribution
at this time, demonstrating the exist
ence there of conditions In slaughter
ing and canning meats far more ob
noxious than anything In the official
reports concerning the -Chicago meat
It is unnecessary to repeat the re
volting circumstances disclosed in the
London canneries and fresh meat
trade now directing - British indigna
tion nearer home, but It' la some con
solation to know that the pres Is ac
knowledging that the greatest need of
protection to public health relates to
the domestic supply For it laxlexnon
strated that ; poisonous t meats . are
worked over with other materials un
der circumstances too loathsome to de
scribe and extensively palmed off on
the publrc as. tinned "delicacies," while
the fresh meat trade is. horribly in
volved by systematic slaughter of tu
berculous and other diseased animals.
Hardly less revolting are the revela
tions of official investigation of the
British manufacture of preserved
fruits and fruit derivatives, which is
one of the f reat national industries.
Official information likewise demon
strates that In some districts in Ger
many the condition of the fresh meat
trade is such that the worst excep
tional, circumstances at Chicago need
not excite squeamishness there. The
recent, report of a United' States con
sul, compiled from official data from
the towns of his district, shows that
within a year almost 6,000 dogs had
been slaughtered and sold at butchers'
stalls as fresh meat, and when this
happens openly the question is sug
gestively ralsedas to what was at the
same time done secretly in the ma
nipulations of the various meat
products, especially as retail prices are
there double and often treble what
they are here, and the temptation to
adulteration and abuse correspond
ingly greater.
It is a forbidding and repulsive
theme, but the truth as 1t is begin
ning to be disclosed shows that we
are not the worst, but only the first
to draw aside t.he curtain. The roost
Valuable result may well turn out ulti
mately to be that the movement
started here, although harmful to our
meat and live' stock interests tem
porarily, will open the eyes of the
world equally to conditions every
where, and thus place our industries
In the end on a more advantageous
and permanent basis. ,In any event
the result must vindicate the wisdom
of President Roosevelt in insisting on
meeting honestly and squarely the sit
uation so far as we are concerned.
The date - for adjournment of con
gress, which a month ago was pre
dicted for about June XO, has now
been pushed forward about two weeks
by the Washington prognostlcatorr.
They are, however, unable to assign
any satisfactory, reasons for th.e latter
date, or, Indeed, for any specific date
in the near future.
There is little better ground for now
anticipating early adjournment than
there was. when Snator " Allison, a
recognised authority, made hla pre
diction. The routine buslneaa has
dragged and at the same time' new
complications have arisen. The prog
ress even of the supply bills Is blocked
by legislative riders on two of them,
the pure food bill on sundry civil ap
propriation and the meat' Inspection
bill on the agricultural appropriation.
Jae agitation and controversy over
the latter alone his bn sufficient to
nullify all adjournment forecasts.
With these and other appropriation
bills still pending, with the certainty
of a time-consuming senate debate on
the Panama canal level question, and"
with a number of other measures like
Immigration, restriction on any of
which complications may arise, as in
4he cane of meat Inspection, It may
well be doubted If congress can possi
bly dispose of more than a small part
of the business before it by July 1.
And for congress to quit before the
public business is reasonably disposed
of would hardly be safe or prudent
while Theodore Roosevelt occupies
the White Honse.
In rendering the opinion on the ro
tation ballot cape, declaring that this
form of ballot did not amount to such
an Interference with the free choice of
the voter as to be a denial of his con
stitutional rights of suffrage, the pre
siding Judge interjected this remark
for himself and his associates: "We
do not want to be understood as say
ing that a rase might not be presented
in which conditions were such that a
balot as here asked would be a denial
of the constitutional rights of the
Questioned further as to what this
side statement meant, the presiding
Judge is said to have explained It by
citing as an example a case where so
many names might be filed as to make
It practically Impossible for the voter
to pick out his preferred candidates on
the official ballot, or where the .ballot
should thus be enlarged until It was
forty feet long.
The question arises. How long must
the ballot be to Interfere with the free
choice of the voter to a degree that it
violates his constitutional rights? The
ballot in the forthcoming primaries,
containing the names filed for state
delegates only, will be seven feet four
inches long, and if the strict letter of
the law as enunciated by the court
were followed by the adSltion of the
candidates for delegates to the con
gressional convention, the ballot would
be ten and a half feet long.
The question is, How long must It
be to violate the voter's constitutional
rights? If a forty-foot rotated ballot
would be clearly Illegal, how about a
twenty-foot ballot,? If a twenty-foot
rotated ballot would be only half as
Illegal as a forty-foot ballot, how about
a ten-foot ballot? t what point of
the yardstick does injustice begin and
Justice end? If six more names bad
b3en. filed. for the coming primary, add
ing three more Inches' to the ballot,
would it have made it illegal?
To a man up & tree it looks as if tLe
court, over-awed by the Fontanelles,
were attempting to inflict this outrage
upon the voters at this time while
leaving a loop hole to crawl out and
reverse its decision next year when
delegates to a judicial convention are
to be chosen and the interests of the
Judges themselves are at stake. We
are not only to have Justice measured
ont to us with a tape line, but the tape
line is to be elastic so It mty be
stretched to make it fit the case.

The Fontanelle bosses arrogantly
assume that they have a monopoly of
the Intelligence of this community and
that by inflicting unnecessary baUot
burdens upon the voters they can dis
franchise their opponents. In this
they are likely to be badly fooled. The
American public likes fair play and de
tests trickery and underhanded meth
ods. A man who is good enough to
vote for the party ticket after, it is
nominated should be good enough to
have a voice in the choice of the party

New Law Proaonaeeo lavaaloo of
8a4ea RtsHt.
Springfield (Mass.) Republican.
The overahadowlng Importance of ' th
railroad rat bill has excluded from general
notice another Important measure affecting
Interstate railroads. This Is th railway
employers' liability bill, which passed the
house, with no discussion worth mention
ing, and has now been adopted by th sen
ate without considerable change. It Is de
manded by a great body of organised rail
road employes and Is evidently going to
become a law at this session.
This measure Is of radical consequence
In two particulars. First. It sets aside th
common law principle of an employer's
liability for accidents t the employe and
substitutes the principle of liability for a'.l
damages to any employes. Whether caused
directly by the neglect of the employer or
by the action or neglect of a fellow employ
or servant ; and the burden of proof, sa we
understand the measure. Is thrown upon
the employer or railroad. Many of the
American states have already by statute
greatly modified the old common law rule
In the direction noted, but this act lifts
railroad employes Into a olass subject to
none of the variations and neglects of state
law In this particular and favors them with
a uniform rule drawn on J he liberal lines
noted liberal for the employe and quite the
opposite for th railroad companies.
Th second radical consequence of the
measure Is further to Invade th powers
of the states and limit their Jurisdiction In
a matter heretofore atSpposed to be exclu
sively their own. And It Is at this point
that th prospective law may meet with
trouble In the federal courts; for It Is a
question whether th federal government,
can constitutionally extend Its power ever
interstate commerce to the degree her In
volved. A great majority of railroad em
ployes live and work exclusively within the
boundaries of this and that state. Com
paratively few of them are trslnmen mov
ing between states. But under this act th
switchman, or track hand, or atatlon man,
or watchman, who worka at a particular
point on a road engaged In interstate com-merce--aa
practically all roads are will It
lifted out of state and brought under federal
jurisdiction In damage cases; and the asm
is true apparently of shopmen and ma
chinists, etc., employed by railroad com
panies. The connection of all thess local
railroad employes with Interstate commerce
eonalsts only of touching It directly or In
directly as It passes by. and Injuria re.
eelved by then) In the performance of their
duties have no sort of necessary relatlnn
ship with federal jurisdiction in Interstate

Jumping out of th frying pan into the
Rosewater's Beaatorlal Chaaees.
' Pub Ho us In the Examiner.
Bid ward Rosewater Is now abroad, at
tending to his dutie's as a representative
of the United States at the International
Poatal congress now meeting In Rome. It
wit with little hope that this was his year
for the eenste that he went to Rome. In
fact he confessed himself as being less
Interested In the campaign than heretofore.
He had, practically, reached the conclusion
that unless some method was established
whereby the will of the people could be
expressed without hindrance or bias, he
would not entrust himself to t tie politi
cians of the state.
Scarcely had he embarked, when his son,
Victor Rosewater began what now seems
to be the most amasing political campaign
ever waged In the state. When lid ward
Rosewater waged battle In behalf of
another he always succeeded; and when
he fought for his own political Interests
he generally met with failure. Victor
Roaewater observed this, and from the
fertile resources of his genius for execution,
formulated th plan of having the demand
for Edward Rosewater's candidacy spring
from the peopled He failed in securing
assent to his state primary proposition
from , the state committee, but nothing
daunted, he continued his campaign of en
listing the people.
Needless to state, th plan ha been suc
cessful. Rosewater's absence lent the op
portunity, a.d the means were easily .
available. Perhaps no' man In Nebraska
has so many enemies and so many ad
mirers as Edward Rosewater. In a long
career as Journalist who Interested himself
In every question that pertained to munici
pal and state affairs, he has established a
fierce and relenting opposition not mollified
by the fact that he generally defeated the
opposition directed against his plana, pur
poses and candidates. Notwithstanding the
fact that he aspired to the United States
senatorshlp- he never- conciliated, nor did
he ever temporise. He has always been a
relentless fighter. At th earn time he has
been a good friend to many a campaigner.
Ho haa stood by his friends at the cost of
personal Influence, political preferment and I
financial .advancement. ; Then, too, . he ; has
been a consistent friend and champion of
th people. . I have seldom praised Rose
water, and. never htve I bent myself, to
comply with his demands where they
seemed incorrect and unjust, but I do not
withhold the "meed of praise that Is hla
Out in the state the farmers and work-.
Ing people believe In him. Possibly the
railroads have little use for, him, yet In
preference to Norrls Brown they would
support Rosewater. He will make a mighty
strong bid for the nomination, and It will
be a surprise to even his enemies if he
doe not suoceed.
It is not necessary to mske any state
ment as to his ability. His career speaks
for him. He Is as -strong mentally ss any
man Nebraska has, and while his Stature
and oratory preclude pride In forehelc ap-
pearance. he would keep Nebraska to the
front In senatorial affaire, for thla Is tho
day when the real work Is done In the
committee room. Other cltlsens of Omaha
ma have been preferred to Rosewater
as a matter of pride, ability and personal
sentiment, but they have declined to enter
th rar. Purely as a matter of personal
antagonism, w hav no sympathy with
the cry "anything to beat Rosewater."
For th sak of Omaha and the Interests
of the stste, Rosewater's election to the
United States senate Is, In my humble
opinion, preferable to any other candidate.

Correal Event Gleaned from the
Army and Kavy Register.
The War department lias not been so
busy In a long time as It Is with the prelim
inary details of arranging for the mobil
isation of the regular army at seven
camps of concentration from July 16
to October . 16. Important changes
have been made In the commands of three
of the camps, on account of the designation
of Brigadier General W. P. Duvall to
observe the army maneuvers In Germany,
where that officer gogs as the associate of
General T. H. Barry. General Duvall was
on the list ' to command the camp at
Chickamauga park, wher his place will be
taken by Brigadier General John W. Bubb.
The latter was to command a camp In the
vicinity of Fort D. A. Russell, where the
command will now devolve upon Brigadier
General Constant Williams, whose orlginnl
assignment at American Lake, Wash.wlll
be taken by Brigadier General Frederick
The artillery authortltle hope to have an
opportunity for the regimental formation
and operation of field artillery during the
summer mobilisation period. There will
be a chance of this at Fort Riley and
probably at Fort D. A. Russell, and It Is
expected ' there will be substantial results
of enduring value on account of this con
centration of field artillery commands. It
has been the cause of regret that it haa
not been possible to do more work with
the field artillery In regimental organisation
and It Is Intended hereafter to' take ad
vantage of every possible opportunity
where may be enough batteries of field
artillery to form a regiment. Thla ar
rangement would undoubtedly be carried
out In real warfare, a was conclusively
shown In the artillery operations In Man
churia. It 1 realised that It Is necessary
to anticipate such a condition and require
ment and be able to meet U fully without
the peril of lack of familiarity . with such
employment of field artillery. ,
There will another, preliminary .. ex
amination far admission . to the medical
corps of the army on July 11. when It Is
hoped to obtain more qualified applicants
than was a result of .the examination on
May 1. The qualified candldatea will
attend the next session of the Army Medi
cal school, taking the final examination for
commission as lieutenant and assistant
surgeon upon completion of th course of
Instruction. In the May 1 examination
fifty-seven applicants were Invited to ap
pear, six of whom declined and ten of
whom failed to appear. There were forty
one candidates examined, ope of whom
withdraw, eleven of whom wer found phy.
Ically disqualified, twenty-two of whom
were rejected snd seven of whom were
found qualified. , There are at. present
twenty-nine vacancies In the junior grade
of the 'army medical department. If the
seven provisionally qualified candidates are
admitted to the corps there will still be at
least twenty-two vacsncles to b filled.
It look aa if the present session of
congresa would end with no nrov1ton
mad to pay th claims of military and
naval people for reimbursement of loses
sustained In the Galveston flood, the Porto
Rico hurricane, the typhoon In the Philip
pines, and which must now be added
the earthquake and fire in San Francisco.
It will require a change of law to permit
th payment of claims of this sort, and
for two or three years the .War depart
ment has made recommendations for such
amendment of the statutes as will enable
the claims to be paid. If the truth must
be told, there Is an Inclination at thr
capltol to do nothing In the direction de
sired, and apparently no amount of argu-l
ment Introduced In behslf of ths victim'
of flood, wind and fire serves to nv
the legislators from their determined r
unfriendly position.
The army bill wss signed by Preslder
Roosevelt on June It It contains mue'.i
new legislstlon affecting the army which
became effective at once. Among the more
Important Items are these:
Expert riflemen In the army are entitled
to S3 a month extra psy. sharpshooters to

rule of deducting 12V4 cents each month
