licans are concerned, entirely upon the
iiwue of their preferred candidate (or
United States senator. The primary Is
held to select the delegates to the
republican state convention appor
tioned to Douglas county and the call
for the convention Includes the en
dorsement of a party nominee for
United States senator. More particu
larly, the issue Is whether an undi

for senator, or whether his candidacy
shall be obstructed and subjected to a
back fire by splitting his delegation
and Injecting Into It a few of his
enemies for that is all that the oppo

of Mr. Rose water have no candidate of
their own whose success they are try-
ng to promote. Endeavoring to rally
behind the cry of "anything to beat

THE FRtC PASS CLAVSB.
Admitting that the anti-free pass

from perfect. It still does not merit
the ridicule which hostile and partisan

The bill as originally Introduced In

public opinion demanded that It should
be passed by the senate without
change, was wholly silent as to free

There will be no company barber shop In
the army. That question ha been settled
finally by the War department In Ita action
on the request, filed by a company rom
mander for permission to establish and op
erate a barber shop for the benefit of the
command. The War department authori
ties lak the position that the post tx
chang Is the proper organisation to con
duct a barber shop at a military post and
It was decided thst where barber shops are
necessary they must exist by arrangement
with the post exchange upon th functions
of which a company barber shop would infringe.
An order will shortly be Issued from the
War department relating to the organisa
tion of a provisional regiment of field nr
tlllery at ' Fort Riley. There will be at
that post ten batteries of that branch vt
th artillery corps for the summer maneuv
ers, or one-third of the entire firld artillery
force of the country. It Is felt that ad
vantage should be token of the mobilisa
tion of this force of field artillery batteries
and to that end provision Is made for the
organisation of the provisional regiment,
mad up of six light batteries. With this
there will be an Independent battalion of
two siege batteries and two horse batteries.
It has been decided not to send to Fort
Lavnworth for preliminary Instruction,
previous to final examination, those army
candidates who have been designated for
appointment a second lieutenant. It has
been the custom to send the nllsted
men, who hav provisionally qualified for
commissions, to Fort Ieavenworth, where
they have undergone a cour of special in
struction at the hand of army officers of
experience. The course has usually ex
tended from July 1 to September 1, when
the young men were examined. This was
of decided advantage to the candidate
themselves and, moreover. It permitted the
authorities to "size up" the candidates and
report upon their availability along line
which are not determined always and un
failingly by the examination to which they
ar subjected. For some reason this prelim
inary course will not take place and the
soldier candidates will report at Fort
Leavenworth In time only to receive their
final examinations on the first of September.

LOG SOUGHT VICTORY.
Secretary Taft has approved plans for
the examination of army officers prellmln-
ry to promotion. The subject has been
under discussion for som time and th
results of the Inquiry have been embodied
n a voluminous and comprehensive report
submitted by the third division of the
general staff. It has beet) Mr. Tsft's Idea
that the system of examination by means
of what may be called local boards was
defective and that officers were promoted
who teally were entitled to be retired or
wholly retired. When Mr. Taft waa before
the senate military committee this winter
on the elimination bill, he said that in most
case where officer were examined the
board took too much notice of the personal
urroundlng of the candidate and, as he
expressed It, the .board placed under exam
ination "the wife and children of the
officer," Instead of the officer. In other
words, the secretary feel there Is alto
gether too much sympathy and sentiment
Injected Into the examination for promo
tion. He hope to get rid of this by th
system which has been suggested by th
general staff and which Is to be described
in detail In the text of a general order
which haa gone to the printer.
The War department has been several
times advised of the presence in western
town of a man of good appearance who
pretended to be a recruiting officer for th
army and who was making bogus contracts
with candidates whom he Induced to "en
list." It appears that little or no charge
was made for the enlistment, but som
sort of fee wa exacted when th accepted
recruit sought to be released from his sup
posed contract with th gjvernment repre
sentative. The culprit ha at last been
oaught and It Is proposed to proceed through
the attorney general to take such action as
will bring him to Justice. This may b th
same man who haa been heard from In
different place In the west and who Is evi
dently making a very good living by the
perpetration of this fraud. It I a good
idea to have the Incident thoroughly ad
vertised to the end that municipal au
thorities, where auch a swindler appears,
may be able to oope with him. Ha seem
to hav gone on his way practically un
molested without much question as to his
identity or the authority for his activity.
It there is more than on auch person
traveling on such a business there Is all
the more reaaon to make an example of
the man who ha now been caught.
There will shortly be Issued from th
War department a ravlsed manual of th
pay department and brand new distance
tables. This latter volume, of great itn
portanc to the army on account of the
allowance of mileage, must be revised by
the striking out of the bond-aided road.
It was found to be cheaper to get out a
new volume than to attempt any correc
tlon of the tables.

While the bill agreed upon may fall

of adulterated or mlsbranded food, drugs,

respect, have for years maintained com

did so simply on the contention that con
gress had not distinctly conferred the
power. If the court then had any doubt
of the validity of such an act of congress
might have said so without going a step
out of Its way, and it should have said so.
Something Hke a distinct prejudice
against the Interstate commission and Its
essential work has been heretofore dis
played by the supreme court, through suc
cessive decisions robbing that body of Ita
presumed powers and emasculating the
original Interstate commerce act. As a
consequence we have this great popular
prising, represented In the nearly unani

restoration of that measure of public con

have been established nearly twenty years
ago. If now this second and most care
fully considered effort Is to meet a Judicial
death, there will come a movement for
public ownership and operation of the
roads which will prove Irresistible since
It will be shown to be the only method
vallnble of bringing railroad monopoly
under public control. If that Is to be con
sidered by the lawyers as more desirable

they are welcome to think so.

A cherry color trimmed With whit.

Get on to that swell bathing suit!"

And hang me If she didn't get
That pretty bathing suit all wet. .
