THE WATER WURfCS APPRAI8EMEXT.
When the compulsory water works
purchase bill was .railroaded through
the legislature three years ago, under
pretext that it would expedite the ac
quisltloc of the water works, it was
pointed out by The Bee that the meas
ure was ill-advised and calculated to
retard rather than expedite the pur
chase of the water works. It was
moreover, pointed out that the com
pulsory water works purchase bill es
tabllshed a dangerous precedent by
compelling the city of Omaha to pur
chase public Improvements involving
an outlay or millions of dollars at
the dictation of a legislature and incl
dentally constituted a flagrant viola
tlon of the principle of home rule by
creating a governor-appointed board,
with almost unlimited power to Im
pose upon the taxpayers needless bur
dens before It had any water works
to supervise or operate.
Time has vindicated The Bee's po
sition. Instead of expediting the ac
quisition of the works and reducing
the burden of the taxpayers In any
particular, three years have been frit
tered away In the process of appraise
ment, and from 150.000 to 1100.000
have already been added to the burden
of Use taxpayers without giving them
any relief, except a temporary reduc
tion of water rates, which will have
to be made good by the property
owners If the decision of the appellate
court that declares the contract orig
inally made with the water company
valid and binding Is sustained by the
United States supreme court, and the
chances are 100 to 1 that It will be
At last the serious stage of the
water works issue has been reached.
Two of the three appraisers have
fixed the value of the plant at $5,614,
346.23, exclusive of South Omaha,
East Omaha, Florence and Dundee,
making the aggregate value of the
works $6,263,295.49. While the of
ficers of the water company naturally
assert thst this appraisement falls
short of their own estimate of the
value of the works and In any event
Is not excessive, competent engineers,
Including the representative of the
city on the appraisement board, pro

$2,000,000 above the actual value
The question that confronts us is,
What does the Water board propose
to do about It? Will it accept the
appraisement as final and recommend
the issue of bonds to consummate the
purchase or will it reject the appraise
ment and proceed to contest It In the
courts through Its special attorneys?
That there is abundant material for
contest even apart from the question
of valuation Is apparent to anybody
familiar with, the situation. In the
first place. It is questionable whether

The International executive suggested

"The advocates of peace," declares
Prof. Moore, "too often Beem to as

away with by plans of conciliation and
arbitration. This assumption alto
gether neglects the existence in the
world of evils that have to be repressed
with the strong hand." The great
problem confronting those who wish
to do away with war Is, as he says,
how to employ the force necessary to
the restraint or repression of evil with
out producing the legal condition of
things called a state of war, and the
most striking imperfection In our In
ternational system is the lack of a
common agency for the enforcement
of International decrees. The idea.
in homely language, Is to create a
world's police force with a big stick
that will club recalcitrant nations into

Out of the farce-comedy, otherwise known
as the Douglas county primary election,
Edward Rosewater emerges with all the

state convention, but It must be a delega

his delegates were so densely Ignorant that
they were compelled to swear that they
could not read the English language, and
had to call upon a Judge of election to

The extraordinary feature of the cours
of legislation has been the direct personal
effort of the president to secure enactment
of great measures which he especially
favored. The whole session was marked by
a sensational series of struggles between
congress on the one hand and the executive
on the other. The president told congress
plainly and directly what he wanted, and
congress gave It because It knew that what
the president demanded was what the
country demanded. This Is not to say that
congress Is hostile to the best interests of
the country, or that It would not have en
acted legislation for the common good In
response to the loud and continuous tot-
mand for drastic Industrial and social re
form: but It Is to say that the executive

Fremont Tribune (rep.).
The republican primaries In Douglas
county resulted In a rousing victory for
Mr. Rosewater for senator. He carried the
day by a vote of two to one. This ellml

chance. He was the last expedient. He
had some friends among the old guard in
Dodge county, because of former affilia

that ha Is out of the running. The nominee
of the state convention will be either Mr.
Rosewater or Mr. Brown.

resulted In a complete victory for the

lican vote In the county Is approximately
4,000, and the Rosewater ticket leads by
from about 10 to 1,760 votes. The rota
tion ballot, while hard to vote, did not
prove an unmitigated evil, the Rosewater
ticket carrying practically every ward In
Omaha and South Omaha and nearly all
country precincts. The democratic vote In
the county waa leas than 1,000. There was
only one list of delegates and therefore no

The surgeon general of the army Is mak
ing arrangements for tha preliminary ex
amination of candidates for appointment to
the junior grade to the medical department.
which examination will take plaee on An
guat 1. So far there are forty-two applica
tions on file and It Is expected there will
be fifteen or twenty, more by the date of
examination. Boards for the examination
of candidates will be convened In different
parts of the country at places which are
convenient to those who desire to be ex
amined. It is hoped that most. If not sll.
of the eighteen vacancies now existing In

surgeon will be filled as a result of the
coming examination. -.
There is already a great desire on the
part of officers to possess the trunk lockers
and field desks which have been adopted
for the army arid for the supply of which
the quartermaster general haa made a con
tract with Topbam of Washington. The
field desks will be supplied to every com
pany, troop and battery of tha army and
possibly some of them will be ready for
use during the mobilisation period, al
though this Is doubtful. The first order
calls for 800 of those articles and they will
be sold to Individual army offloers at the
contract price of $14 each. Many appli
cations have been received for the desks
and they will be furnished as soon as avail
able. Nearly 100 orders have been received
for the trunk lockers of which ens Is
ultimately to be furnished every soldier In
the army. The deliveries under the con
tract made by General Humphrey will be
gin on July L Individual! orders for the
lockers will be filled as rapidly aa possible
at the contract price of $4.60.
The War department will soon have
ready for distribution the first of the three
volumes which will contain the reports of
the military observers who were rlth the
Rusalan and Japanese troops in Manchuria
during the recent war. The first volume Is
now In the hands of the public printer and
should be ready for Issue within the next
few weeks. It will contain edited reports
of Major J. F. Morrison, Captain Carl
Reichmann, Captain P. C. March and
Colonel W. S. Schuyler. The book will be
abundantly Illustrated from photographs
taken or obtained by these officers while
In Manchuria. A subsequent volume, the
contents of which have not been determ
ined upon, will probably contain the re
ports of Majors W. V. Judson and J. E.
Kuhn, while a third volume will probably
be devoted to the reports of the army medi
cal officers who were with the troops dur
ing the Russlsn and Japanese war, being
the comments of. Colonel Hoff, . Colonel
Havard and Major Lynch.
There Is a chance, and a very good, one
too, that canteens where beer may be sold
will be established at the camps of Instruc
tion this summer. This Is possible under
certain conditions which are likely to be
availed of by the state authorities. Tho
case in point comes up In connection with
the camp of Instruction to be established
at the state maneuver camp near Austin,
Tex., from July 2T to September 30 during
the operation of which time organisations
of the national guard will be associated
with regulars. This state maneuver
ground la In the Jurisdiction of the state of
Texas and it Is the purpose of the military
authorities of the state . to establish can
teens on the maneuver grounds where beer
hut not alcoholic liquors are to be sold.
The Idea Is an excellent one and should
prevail without hindrance from any quar
ter, not only in the Texas ramp, but elae
where. It would help the local condltiona
amaxlngly and there la no reason why It
should not be carried out everywhere In
the Interest of morality, decency and dis
cipline. It seems It has been the custom
of the national guard authorities of Texas
to permit the ssle of beer within tha limits
of their camp site, the profits to be used
for the improvement of the camp grounds.
It Is not believed this privilege la forfeited
because regular troops with whom the
national guards are associated are not
allowed a similar one. There can be no
Interference evidently with canteena estab
lished and maintained under permission of
the suthoritlea of the state of Texas for
Instance, during tha period of Joint encampment.
She Waa Told That an Operation Was
Inevitable How Bhe Eocapod It.
When a physician tells a woman suf
fering with serious feminine trouble
that an operation Is necessary, the very
thought of the knife and the operating
table strikes terror to her heart, and
our hospitals are full of women coming
for Jus such operations.
There are cases where an operation
Is the only resource, but when one con
siders the great number of cases of
menacing female troubles cured by
Lydia K, Pinkham's Vegetable Com
'pound after physiclsns have advied
operations, no woman should submit to
one without first trying the Vegetable
Compound and writing Mrs. Pinkham,
Lynn, Mass., for advice, which is free.
Miss Margret Merkley, of 375 Third
Street, Milwaukee, Wis., writes:
Dear Mrs. Finkbam:
Loss of strength, extreme nervousness,
hooting pains throur' tbs pelvio organs,
bearing down pains and cramps compelled
tne to seek medical advice. The doctor, after
making an examination, said I bad a female
trouble and ulceration and advised an opera
tion. To this I strongly objected and decided
to try Lyola E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound. Tbo ulceration quickly healed, all
the bad symptoms disappeared and I am
00c more strong, rigorous and wall."
Female troubles are steadily on the
Increase among women. If the month

BELLA OF LOXa AGO.
Tinkling bells of the Long Ago, where ht
your music gone?
Why does your melody grow faint as th?
years go creeping on?
Where Is the hush of vesper time, when
across the twilight gray
Ws heard your cry for souls to come lost
souls to come and pray?
Where are the bells'that pealed to Oo-
when fair was the woNd and young
Era the tide of life had ebbed so far and
tha sorrows were still unsung?
Where are the olden, golden hells thst
guided the straying feet.
And tolled In the evening afterglow like a
benediction sweet? - ,
Thro' the mesh of years there come the
dreams of your echoing, swelling
And there gleams the sheen on life's great
tide of an olden summertime;
The path winds smooth to the distant
world thro' the sweets of a fragrant
And the hope In the heart Is strong ani
beats with your melody In tune.
Tinkling bells of the Long Ago, laden with
dust and mould.
Ring again for those who've strayed from
the hearthstone's true enfold:
Ring again for the onea whoae feet the
atony patha have trod
Bring them back to the fold again and
show tbem the way to Clod!
And you know why, too. Don't you
know that Ayer's Hair Vigor restores
color to gray hair? Well, it does.
And it never fails, either. It stops
falling hair also, and keeps the scalp
clean and healthy. Do not grow old
so fast! No need of it.
