All these facts are comprehended in
the president's endorsement, but he
likewise emphasizes many other im
portant products of the session's work,
like the law relating to meat inspec-
tlon. pure food, denaturlzed alcohol
and the Panama canal. The magnl-
tude of the results achieved will be
better appreciated by the general pub-
lie when they become better known
and when there Is opportunity to com-I
pare them with the work of other con
gresses. The record will be exposed
under the full blaze of publicity dur-
ing the political campaign now about
to open in which It must constitute in
large part the subject matter of party
controversy. That It is a record which
President Roosevelt himself can com-
mend so heartily and which his sincere
friends and supporters can defend as
illustrative of the spirit and policies in
which they are resolved to persevere
under his leadership is a significant
fact on which, at this juncture, the re
publican party Is to be congratulated.
BOW CANNON FORCED BCSINESS.
It is clear that Speaker Cannon's In
vincible refusal to" permit an agree'
nient to adjourn oh a certain date in
the form of the usual Joint resolution,
In advance of the completion of bus!
ness before congress, prevented the
failure of several Important measures,
and thus contributed In an important
degree to the great record of the ses
A favorite method of obstructionists
or of representatives of special inter
eats for defeating bills, which, if per
mitted to be brought to direct issue,
would certainly be passed, has long
been to delay theni till the last days
of a session after an adjournment date
has been fixed. The rules of the sen
ate lend themselves effectively to such
tactics, because a few senators can
then, in the pressure of appropriation
bills, easily exhaust the limited time,
and frequently a mere objection Is
fatal without a single senator having
to show his hand. Time and again im
portant measures have Jhus ben
smoothly manipulated to their gTaves.
The repeated efforts made the last
few weeks, which were thwarted by
the speaker of the house, to get an ad
journment date fixed are believed to
have had for their object the defeat
or emasculation of such legislation as
the pure food bill, and might indeed
have gravely imperiled even the rate
bill or some of Its Important features,
for up till near the last of the session
that measure was held in such condi
tlon that It would have been at the
mercy of a small group of hostile sen
ators if they had been given a chance
to use their power.
These facts add point to the declara
tlon which Speaker Cannon is quite
reliably reported to have made pri
vately, that hereafter-,- so long as he is
in the halr of the house, no Iron-clad
adjournment rule shall be adopted till
after both branches of congress have
substantially disposed of the public

In these days of trusts snd corporations
the people take much Interest tn the eleo
tlon of United States senators from th
different states. Th present fight for the
senatorial toga In Nebraska Is attracting
the attention of not only people throughout
the west, but of men tn Washington.
Edward Rosewater, founder and for a
quarter of a century editor of Th Omaha
Ba, stands in th lead of the republican
candidates. In addition to being backed
by The Bee, the leading republican new
paper In the state, Rosewater la recognized
as an antl-rallroad, anti-corporation candl
date. He ha fought for equal taxation
and against corporation domination for
many years and Rosewater Is entitled to
the senatorshlp. However, he has been in
many hot political fights and has political
enemies In th state. If t-- conteat I left
to the will of th republican voters Rose-
water will probably be selected, but If
left to the politicians It Is a question. Rose
water was the private telegrapher of Presi
dent Abraham Lincoln during th civil war
and is at present th representative of the
United State at the International Postal
congress, now In session In Rome. He ha
never had political office, but haa always
been in the thick of th fight.
