Whatever efficacy there may be In I
the Invitation extended by Joint reso- I
lutlon of the Iowa legislature to a con- I
ference of persons designated by the
governors of the several states to pro-
mote action by state legislatures In I
favor of the election of United States
senators by direct vote of the people,
It Is one among multiplying signs of
the growing popular demand for the
adoption of that method. The partlc-
nlar Influence of such a conference
will depend much upon the extent to 1
which the governors of the various
states respond to the Invitation and
upon the number and character of
their appointees who attend.
It has been demonstrated to be prac
tically Impossible to secure a proposal
to amend the present constitutional
provision for election of senators by
the concurrence of two-thirds of fcoth
houses of congress. . The alternative
method .requires . the application to work well forward before the close of
congress of the legislatures of two- his term of office, and while no other
thirds of the states for a convention duty will be neglected, the adjourn
to propose amendments, which would ment of congress will only mark re
not be adopted until ratified by the doubled effort on his part In that dl-
legtslatures or conventions of three-1
fourths of the states.. Many state leg

making the appropriate application to
congress, and the rapid increase of the
number of such legislatures recently
shows that public sentiment Is pro
gressing toward a point at which, with
proper organization and co-operation,
the condition may be established re
quiring congress to call an amend
ment convention. It would of course
still remain, auer me amendment naa
been submitted, to secure us ratinca-
tlon by three-fourths of. the states.

constitutional amendment that popu
lar effort is directed more and more
to secure the nearest possible approach
to it through legal or voluntary party
prlmarles, without waiting for change
of the constitution. And already. In
an Increasing number of states the
moral obligation Is thus accepted as
binding on members of the legislature
to vote for senatorial candidates nom-i
tnated by poll of the party member-'
ship. While an Improvement, this clr-1

Speaker Cannon's ultimatum to the
senate that there shall be no agree-
ment to adjourn until the rate control,
meat inspection and pure food bills
have all been passed, it Is reasonably
believed, will speedily Insure more
conclusive action than there has been
during the last week- It .iaian.. old
scheme of the senate or of .influential
senatorial cliques for getting virtual
control of legislation In the late stages
et a session to secure an adjournment
agreement while Important measures
are still pending. It Is then often In
tne Pwer oI mall group of senators
,n1 "onUn' . of a single sena-
or' bcua ot the peculiar rules and
curty. to force the assent of an un-
willing house to forms of legislation
on pain of defeating measures of vast I
Importance. A disposition has 'been
manifested In the senate to get things
In precisely that shape in. the wind-up
of the present session, the rate bill be-
ing among the measures that have
been suspiciously held In suspension
and both the meat Inspection and the
pure food bills being also obstinately
8peaker Cannon's notice to the sen-
ate therefore forces the alternatives of
passing tbe three measures which are
agreed to be of greatest Importance
or of remaining Indefinitely In session.
With these regularly disposed of, It ts
assumed that agreement could at once
be reached to adjourn on a certain
I future day, which might possibly per-
mlt tbe passage of the immigration bill
and several other measures of large
importance. But the anxiety of mem-
bers of congress to get away Is such
that In no event could a quorum long
be held after the three measures in-
eluded In Speaker Cannon'a ultimatum
are passed.
The interesting fact is given out from
reliable, Washington ' sources that no
sooner will congress have adjourned
than th. nrMnt wtit Af -
energy to pushing the Panama canal
enterprise forward. The decision to
make a lock Instead of a sea level
canal, although vitally Important at
this juncture, in nowise removes out
of the way the difficulties, which are of
uiubi lormiasuis cnaracisr ana re-
quire not only the highest engineering
skill and courage, but also every ad-
minlstratlve power that can be brought
to bear, and the president's plans con- iu supreme srilOB on nis
own part which he exacts from all
ho are concerned with the canal
No such locks were ever constructed

locks, as to tbe security and working
of which engineers are not agreed, are
I by no means as serious a problem as
1 that presented by the stupendous dsmslfiom the "rotation" outrage from sev
I which are necessary to control two
I great rivers, subject to tropical floods,
I whose courses run athwart the canal
route. While the outline of the plans
for the locks' and dams have been
drawn, many important questions re-
mala to be settled regarding them, not
to speak of a variety of matter con
cernlng other parts of .the historic
work, each If considered by itself of
treat magnitude. The president real
Itea that the a u roe as of the undertake
Ins depends , In large part on the
prompt and correct settlement of these
questions at the start
In two essential respects, aside from
benefiting by the general experience
lof the French on the isthmus, our gov
ernmett will have great advantage in
prosecuting the work. It will be free
from the financial crisis through which
the French company frequently passed,
for the necessary funds will surely be
forthcoming when needed. Then, so
far as regard, excavation, of which
there Is a vast amount, there has been
a marvelous development In machinery
the last few years which greatly slm-
pllfles and facilitates the task of mere
canal digging.
It Is known that President Roosevelt
has set his heart upon getting the canal
the "rotatioX' ballot.
It is a well known fact that the "ro-
tatlon" ballot for electing delegates to
tbe republican state convention at the
primary next Tuesday was Inflicted
upon the voters of Douglas county for
the express purpose of making the
marking of the ballots so confusing
and burdensome as to disfranchise
worklngmen and foreign-born citizens
who are suDnosed to be lacking in "In
telllgence." It devolves upon working
d foreln-bornv voters, there-
fo t ahnw fh.t -,. th nnnftc.
.a...., and uncalled for obstructions
they still have the intelligence to exer
cise the elective franchise effectively.
To do this every voter must study
and underBtand the ballot he Is re-
quired to mark. The "rotation" bal
lot, according to the court order pro
cured by the Fontanelles, Is a ballot In
this Instance containing 226 names, ar
ranged in one long column, following
one another In alphabetical order, but
"rotated" so that the particular ballot
a voter may receive may begin with
any one of the names. For example,
the particular ballot handed out may
begin with the name "McCague." In
that case the other names will follow
alphabetically from McCague to "Zlm-
man" and then to the first letter of the
alphabet and down the A. B. Cs to
"McCague" again.
To use a sample ballot effectively it
should be taken into the booth by the
voter and each name for which he
wishes to vote checked off as he puts
his crossmark opposite it on the offi-
clal ballot. After making- his cross-
marks the voter should count them to
be sure he has voted for eighty-three
no more and no less. , If hot makes a
mistake he should return his ballot and
get a new one, and If he is In doubt
about anything he should ask the elec-
tlon judge to .help him.
Another point for special care Is to
avoid confusion by identity of names.
There are on the ballot two Adams, of
which "James H. Adams" Is the Rose-
water delegate. There are six Ander-
sons, of which two. "David Anderson"
and "Nels J. Anderson." are on the
Rosewater ticket. There are two
Clarkes. of which "F. N. Clarke" is on
the Rosewater ticket. There ere two
Coles, of which "W. W. Cole" Is on the
Rosewater ticket. There are two Cun-
nlnghams, of which "M. O. Cunning-
ham" is on the Rosewater ticket. There
re two Fosters, of which "William A.
Foster" is on the Rosewater ticket.
There are three Johnsons, of which
w. "George M. Johnson" and "W.
Ernest Johnson," are on the Rosewater
ticket. There are five Smiths, of which
two, "Edward A. Smith" and "Fred L.
Smith." are on the Roaewater ticket.
There are two Stones, of which "Ben
J- 8tone" is on the Rosewater ticket.
There are two Willis, of which "E. A.
Willis" is on the Rosewater ticket.
Wlth grouping of the delegations no
difficulty would have been found on
this account, but with the voter re-
u,rea to make eighty-three crosses to
register his choice it Is especially 1m
Pant that he avoid being misled by
similarity of names
The application of the "rotation'
ballot scheme to this election of con
ventlon delegates is a piece of ballot
jugglery perpetrated in the hope of
splitting the delegation. To accom
plish results Douglas county republic
ans ought to send delegates to Lincoln
unanimous for the candidate of their
choice. It remains for the rank and
file of the party to rebuke the rotation
ballot tricksters by electing every one
of the eighty-three Rosewater del

Father-in-Law's Paper Bays They Will Be for Edward Rose
water for Senator Unless Tricked by Manipula
tion and Jugglery.
World-Herald, April 10, lfo.
The esteemed Fremont Herald inform
Its reader that the. action of the repub
lican state convention. In refusing the re
quest of Victor Rosewater that the repub
lican voter be allowed to choose the re
publican candidate for United Btatea sen
ator, "was a death-blow to th senatorial
aspirations of Edward Rosewater."
The Herald, commenting on tha fact,
says that for many year th masses of
the republican hare believed In Mr. Rose
water as a true anti-monopolist, but they
have never been able to control their party

Large forces of husky workmen ar en
gaged in th long delayed job of making
openings for the escape of the overworked
air of th New York subway. All winter
long th necessary alterations were de
layed, and now the hot weather has
brought the people up In arms over the
stifling air In the bore th authorltlea
have set to work Isj a frensy of haste.
The city Is footing the bill for the Im
provements, for It was the city that ad
vanced the money for the original con
struction and the city will come Into pos
session of the property at the expiration
of th seventy-five-year lesse the Belmont
lines now hold on the underground high
way. The architects and engineers of the suh
wsy evidently took it for granted that the
openings at the various stations would be
sufficient to provide all the ventilation nec
essary, and during the greater portion of
the tunnel's lenirth no other alr-glving de
vices were arranged. In upper Broadway,
however, the parking In the center of the
thoroughfare under which the tube runa
offered such an unusual opportunity for
ventilating shafts several were put In. The
necessity of this additional means of bring
ing fresh sir Into the tunnel was mad
evident last summer, for th upper sub
way was from 10 to 15 degrees cooler than
the lower end,' while the quality of the
atmosphere In the different sections was
not to be con-pared at all.
The most valuable garden patch on Man
hattan Island consists of two beds of let

In the rear of a little one-story wooden
house in West On Hundred and Twenty,
fourth street, half way between Columbus
and Amsterdam avenuea. The house and
garden In the rear are flanked on three
sides by modern six-story apartment
houses, which all but shut out th sun
from the garden. The houae occupies only
half the frontage of the lot, which gives an
xcellent view of the garden from the
street. Th little farm house almost brings
tears to the eyes of passing real estate
men. who realise how much more valuable
th ground could be made.
Besides Hook mountain on the Hudson,
there Is another beautiful bit of scenery lu

It '. was bought long ago by Andrew H.
dreen (th "father of Greater New York")
In order to preserve It; and he was also
the 'fouhder of the American scenic and
hlstorlo preservation society, which has
been instrumental In preserving Hook
mountain. The state pays for th glen
$50,000, Just what Mr. Green paid for it.
It la now perpetuated aa a slate park.
Detailed plans for the proposed Hudson-

been completed by the committee In charge.
The plans Include a naval parade, a land

Inwood with a memorial there, and the
establishment of a, state park at Vcr-
planCk's point. The plans for the naval
parade include representation for the na

Th city of New York baa appropriated
$1,000,000 to build a magnificent bridge
across th Harlem river at th point where
It connects with the Hudson. To this sum
$1000,000 more will be adaed. The brldnu
la a little less than half a mil in length
and th central steel arch, 170 feet abov
th water, will measure 826 feet. Thl
central span Is the largest but one In the
world, being only fifteen feet less In length
than the arch over Niagara gorge. The
broad walks and the smooth driveway will
form an Important link In the aystem of
parks and driveways that lie scattered over
Greater New York.
Near on end of the bridge is a knoll 1
thlrty-flv feet In height. On this knoll
a statue of Hudson, possibly a model of his
historic craft, will carry out the memorial
Idea. This feature is to be carried through
by popular subscription. Th city hope
to hav the structure completed in time
for th celebration.

Just at present public attention Is cen
tered mainly on tha various efforts being
mad to restrain trust abuses through the
agercy of the federal government., A re
minder of the fact that the Individual
states have Important and effective power
of their own in this respect Is to be found
in court decisions just rendered in Ohio
snd Missouri. The proceedings instituted
In theaa esses may be considered an inter
esting evidence of the general extent and
development of the movement now In prog
ress against corporate lawlessness.
In the Ohio case the defendant trust was
a combination of Toledo Ice dealera who
were accused of combining In restraint of
trade. These dealers were shown to have
been working In sgreement to maintain the
pries of le at an exorbitant figure. Though
they pleaded that they were guilty of only
a technical ofrense, the court haa decided
that they violated the law and haa Imposed
upon each of them a sentence providing a
fine of $1,000 and on year'a Imprisonment
in the Toledo workhouse. The only way,
apparently, in which they ar likely to
avoid this punishment Is by accepting the
court's proposal that they reduce prices
and make restitution to th public of the
money Illegally taken.
Th Missouri decision la even mote
sweeping, for it virtually says that under
the state law an Illegal trust may not cot
lect debts owing to it. In this case a St.
Louis plumbers' supply association, which
la held to be a trust, had sued a plumber
for th payment of a bill. The state law
contains a clause explicitly providing that
no purchaser who buys goods from an Ille
gal trust shall be liable for payment for
them. The court haa upheld the law, de
ciding that the plumber need not pay.
Virtually, It would appear, a debt owing to
an unlawful trad combination In Mlasourl
hss no more legal status than a gambling
Prosecutions of this character brought
under stat laws denote at once the In
clination of state authorltlea to deal with
unlawful trusts. Independent of federal ac
tion, and their ability to do so. The great
trade organisations doing an Interstate
business already have had their warning.
The local concerns which operate wholly
or In part within th hordera of one state
ar likely to find eventually that the state
government to which they are responsible
i. amDiy able to deal wltb them, also. In
case they attempt monopolistic or oppres
sive practices.

hus been th focus ef untold millions of
eyrs. the center of every domestic storm
of controversy. On this account h Is the
subject of a considerable amount of ho
tile criticism. On this account, also, he
has endeared himself to the peon's of all
class and conditions throughout .ha
country. Later on we may see how ths
criticism of tht disaffected fw will flgur

of a courage without calculation, and an
energy consecrated ,t,o unselfish ends.
Above all, there Is tha engaging figure of
a president speaking frankly for the po
ple. Ignoring precedents arid going straight
to the mark he has set before him without
thought of consequences to himself. No
one can deny that It ts a novel and Inspirit
ing apotheosis. None need wonder, that it
captures the popular Imagination. -
Maybe Mr. Theodore Roosevelt Is tbe
shrewd, self-seeking, hesrtless aspirant his
enemies would have us believe; maybe he
Is working for snother nomination and an
other term. But. If so, he Is master of a
finesse of which Maohlavelll, Borgia, Tally
