Tha admiral has never been in politics. The president of Haytl has agreed to Quit Ehootlng rebels. He will probably ba content with hanging them. ..... That power canal has been built bo many times on paper that Omaha peo ple are now all from Missouri on that subject. , "What can you tell me about Wil liam the Silent?" asks a correspond ent. Nothing, except that ha was not i Nebraskan. George Bernard Shaw says he is willing to etand for Parliament. It remains to be seen If Parliament will stand for Shaw. Governor Johnson says the office should seek the man. Perhaps, but Mr. Bryan will not allow the nomina tion to seek the man. Is it not about time that a reward was offered for anyone who will locate the William. Stuyvesant Chanter dem ocratic presidential boom? . "Lawn mowers are generally sharp ened with, a fine file," saya the Indian apolis News. On .the contrary, lawn mowers are generally not sharpened. " To tha assertion that. In the mean while Omaha has "a competent water .board composed of representative cltl tens," there are liable to be several dissents. - . Evelyn Nesblt Thaw has decided to go abroad to live. We have felt con fident all along that Evelyn would finally do something to meet popular approval. Washington has a report that Sena tor Aldrlch Is to retire voluntarily to private life. Washington has had similar reports about Senators Piatt and Depew. Mourning postage stamps are to be authorlxed by the government They will be appropriate for return postage on several presidential campaign booms a little later. Judge Munger Is without doubt "an able, fair and careful Jurist." His only trouble seems to be that all his derisions In the water works cases T-rn been reversed on appeal. The story about Ethel Roosevelt running an engine at seventy miles aa hour Is not complete, as It does not state that she shook hands with the engineer at the end of the trip. Mrs. David Jayne Hill announces that she has quit riding her bicycle to market. If Bo, the last objection to her husband's appointment aa ambas sador to Germany has been removed. When half the towns in Nebraska can go dry and the other halt go wet to-accord with local sentiment, the local option part of the Slocumb law must be tn pretty good working order. "Bourke Cockran Is a very talented man," Bays Richard Croker, "but ha has done more harm to the democratic party than any other man I can think of." " Evidently Croker cannot think of either Mr. Dryau or himself. MR JOHXSO TO MR. BfjrA.V. ' Governor Johnson of Minnesota In sists that be is but a passive candi date for tho democratic presidential nomination and that he does not be lieve any man should openly seek the nomination. The men promoting the candidacy of the Minnesota executive are less modest, however., and ' are busily engaged In sending out state ments, defts and questions calculated to arouse the slumbering hope of dem ocrats who have long desired Mr. Bryan's defeat for the nomination, but have felt the hopelessness of attempt ing to accomplish that result. The Minnesota democratic state committee, In an appeal to the democratic lead ers to support Governor Johngon's candidacy, says: Conditions industrially, financially and politically are such that we have thla year the opportunity of a generation to win the presidency. Why five- It up by supinely acquiescing In any nomination which guar anteee defeat? While the Minnesota committee mentions no . names, its declaration will be accepted aa aimed at Colonel Bryan. It amounts to a notice that the democrats of Minnesota agree with the democrats of the east that the nomination of Mr. Bryan "guaran tees defeat" This view is adopted by the New York World, which has been busy for months trying to arouse the democrats to action against Bryan. The World, discussing the Minnesota appeal, says: The democrats will have no chance at all with Mr. Bryan. They might have a chanct with Governor Johnaon, who would carry every state that Mr. Bryan could carry, who could probably carry Minnesota and North Dakota, where Mr. Bryan would have no. chance whatever, and who would be at least 100,000 votes stronger than Mr. Bryan In tha great debatable atates of New York and New Jersey. The Minnesota committee and the World are both going on the theory that the democratic party really wants to win and that "conditions Indus trially, financially and politically" are such that they can win. This assump tion is without warrant in fact, be cause the report heralded from demo cratic sources that the republican party is torn by dissensions is not borne out. The rivalry among aspir ants for the presidential nomination has been good-natured, however keen it may have been, and all indications are that the nominee will have the hearty and united support of the party.. The real dissension is In the democratic ranks and In the ranks of voters who, under ordinary condi tions, would be disposed to vote the democratic ticket. The contention of the New York World that Johnson could carry every state that Bryan could carry may be correct, but the suggestion that he could probably carry Minnesota and North Dakota" will not go in face of the election records. Minnesota gave McKinley a plurality of 77,000 in 1900 and Roosevelt 161,464 in 1904. North Dakota gave McKinley over Bryan 15, 372 and Roosevelt 38,332 over Parker. Governor Johnson, should he be nominated, would enter both North Dakota and Minnesota with a tre mendous handicap. The World also asserts that Gov ernor Johnson "would be at least 100,000 votes stronger than Mr. Bryan in the great debatable states of New York and New Jersey." Mc Kinley carried New York by 143,000 in 1900 over Bryan and Roosevelt carried it by 175,652 . in 1904 over Judge Parker. In state issues since that time the republican lead has been reduced, but the loss has gone to Hearst and not to the democrats. It Mr. Hearst put a national ticket in the field, as he says he will, he demo cratic party may be third in the race there. Another important feature of thel situation is apparently overlooked in the fact that many of Mr. Bryan's sup porters, particularly In the west, openly declare that they would rather follow him to defeat than to follow anybody else to victory. The demo cratic situation, ' then, resolves itself into this that they admit that they can not win with Bryan and know that they can not win without him. CAKAL ZOltM oortnsttitiT. Congressman Harrison of New York evidently woke up the wrong passen ger when he attempted to manufacture some democratic campaign material with a house resolution calling upon President Roosevelt to define the au thority by which he assumes to direct the government of the Panama canal xone. In support of his resolution Mr. Harrison asserted that the presi dent had assumed -dictatorial powers In the Panama cone and had ruled the territory according to bis own notion, although congress had given him but temporary authority. The president's answer, contained in a message to the house, Is brief, but to the point. He declares that be Is directing the gov ernment of the zone: Pursuant to tha authority conferred by tha treaty between the United States and Panama concluded November It, 1906, and tha acta of congresa approved June 21, 1003; April 28. ISM; March a, 16; December a, 1808: June 10, 1906. and March 4, 1907, by which the right to maintain civil govern, ment In the canal sone waa granted to the United States, the duty to maintain It war tmpoeed upon tha president, and the meant for Ha maintenance were from year to year expressly and specifically appropriated by congreas. . , . In thla Instance the president la but exercising authority conferred on him by congressional act. If no such au thorization bad been made it would still be his right and his duty to direct the government of the sone, In the ab sence of specific provision by congress to the contrary. The United States Is investing millions t money lu the construction of the Panama canal and the very presence of the United Status on the sone carries with It the obliga tion to preserve order and manage the strip for the benefit of the country. Congressman Harrison la quite wel come to any consolation he may find tn the president's answer to his resolu tion calling for Information. GiMTirrMrc. One of the most gratifying features of the big Taft reception in Omaha comes from the expresslovs of satis faction and pleasure by the out-of-town visitors, who came to Omaha from all over Nebraska to participate In the welcome to the .war secretary, The same : sort of expressions were heard from the strangers within our gates after both the recent democratic and republican state conventions held in Omaha a month ago. The visitors returned home feeling that they had been well taken care of. that Omaha appreciated their presence and paid attention to their wants. These are evidences of Omaha's marked improvement in entertaining guests. While there is still room for much more improvement, the results already accomplished in this direction are by no means inconsiderable. We may as well admit that Omaha, has been altogether too negligent in the past about extending the hand of wel come to the people residing in other parts of the state. Let us determine to keep up the good work so that Omaha will hereafter always have friends with words of praise for it in every city and town In Nebraska. LAW AKD CON8C1ESCE. The mayor of Highland Park, a suburb of Chicago, has adopted at least a novel plan to enforce the law against automobile scorchers. In stead of concealing armed constables along the road or building "bumps" In the highways, he has made a direct apeal to the conscience of the automo blllsts. He has sent a letter to the members of the Chicago Automobile club urging them to observe the law while passing through Highland Park. He explains that Highland Park is a residence town, the inhabitants of which have hearkened to President Roosevelt's race suicide teachings and that they have real affection for their children. He asks that the auto mobile scorchers exercise reasonable caution In order that the children may not be maimed or killed. He promises that no arrests will be made, for a time, if the members of the club will co-operate with him in his conscience cure of the sco rolling habit. It will be interesting to watch tor the effects of this appeal to the in telligence of automobile owners. The average citizen who owns an auto mobile Is not a violator of the law through willful choice. Violations of the anti-speed ordinances are usually due to thoughtlessness or carelessness, and this request to automobllists to display forbearance may be more ef fective than arrests and fines. WHAT SHALL Wt DO ABOUT IT1 The decision of the United States circuit court of appeals, affirming the appraisement ' of the Omaha water works and giving the water, company an order for specific performance of the sale contract, raises all sorts ot questions in the minds of Omaha tax payers and citizens. There ia no doubt that if everyone had had the idea at the outset that we would be compelled to pay over (6,000,000 for this property the de mand for Immediate compulsory pur chase wculd never have gotten head way. What shall 'we do about it now? The Bee would like to hear from its readers on this question. Let us have all possible suggestions as to the best course to pursue and a pertinent dis cussion of the points involved. The Bee will print proper communi cations on the water works situation. The letters must be short not over 800 words In order not to overrun the space we can devote to this pur pose. ) Now is the time to speak out Governor Sheldon does not relish the action ot Jurors who after Joining in a verdict of guilty sign their names to, petitions asking for executive clemency for the convicted prisoner. This Is where we disagree with the governor. There is a decided differ ence between determining a man's guilt and determining whether miti gating circumstances entitle him to consideration by the pardoning power. Where petitions for executive clem ency are plainly signed by jurors in a perfunctory way aa a sort of con-sclence-easer or merely to please some one else no attention should be paid to them. But where jurors who have heard all the evidence are really con vinced that the prisoner, although guilty, should be given another chance their appeala should carry more than usual weight. v Please take note that in Wisconsin the slate of delegates to go to Denver put up by the democratic state con vention nearly two months ago went through the direct primary without opposition. The democrats have com pletely evaded and nullified the pro visions of the Wisconsin primary elec tion law. but they will keep on insist ing that the direct primary principle la a democratic doctrine for which the democrats should have all the credit Congressman Llttlefleld of Maine was the only member of the house to vote against the employers' liability bill, framed along the lines laid down by recent federal supreme court de cisions. He explained that he bad "legal reasons" for ' opposing the measure. Mr. Llttlefleld has already selected the employer who will be 11a ble for his salary when he retires from congress In September. We protest that it is not fair for Mr. Bryan to be drawing crowds to ba addressed by Candidate Shallenberger, The Inference Is that Candidate Ehal lenberger enjoys the particular' favor and approval of his chief, as against Mr. Berge In their aspirations for tha gubernatorial place on the democratic ticket in Nebraska this fall. In the language of the street,' this looks like "playing a favorite." The local democratic organ says that the defeated democratic nominees In South Omaha are disposed to accept the results of the city election. This la generous, indeed. Had . they won out we presume they would have al lowed the defeated republicans to ac cept the results of the election without giving them any particular credit for patriotic submission. The University of Nebraska will participate in the National Corn show at Omaha with a suitable exhibit illus trating the work It is doing for im provement of farm methods and re sults. The National Corn show is an educational enterprise and the two can work together with mutual benefit. According to a British medical Jour nal, persona resembling each other suffer from the same diseases. It's a poor rule that doesn't work both ways, yet Taft, Fairbanks, Knox, Hughes and Bryan do not resemble each other a little bit, and still they are suffering from the same disease. A New York Judge has told Alexan der Berkman, the anarchist agitator. that he is but little better than a bur glar. That judge may count on los ing the burglar vote when he comes up for re-election. Reference is made to the "original mistake In the water works purchase proceedings. Was there any "orlgl nal" mistake? - Were not the mis takes rather all consecutive and con tinuous?

Baltimore American, Benator La Follette recently published a list ,of 100 men who control the financial and industrial .situation of the country, arid are, therefore, wealthy enough to be placed In the malefactor class. It now de velops that there were six dead men In the list. Many things have been said of the American millionaire, but It has remained for Mr. La Follett to class him with tha "dead ones." Perfection la Moaopoly, Philadelphia Ledger. Tha anthracite situation. If It were closely studied today, would perhaps disclose a monopoly aa nearly perfect aa the world haS ever aeen. Its power la unlimited snd its rapacity merciless. The consumers of domestic coal know Its Iron band, and the treatment of tha buaineas world which uses steam coal is auch that an embargo has been laid upon tha Industry and prosperity of Philadelphia. Without regard to the coat of coal or to the supply and demand or any other factor or consideration which rules In the general world of trad and commerce, tha anthracite trust lays its relentless hand upon business energy and either paralyses It .or squeeses out tha last dollar. TAKT AND BUY AN. Criticism of tho Latler'a Coarao Be. Vardln the rblllpplaes. Chicago Tribune. It waa to be expected that Secretary Taft, being In Nebraska, would aay aomethlng about M,r. Bryan, a wall known cltlsea of that state, tha choice of Its populists and Its democrats for the presidency. While It waa only natural for tha secretary to discourse on Mr. Bryan's shortcomings. It was unnecessary. Tha men to whom ha spoke knew all about Mr. Bryan. They are familiar with hla Philippine policy and detest it. When Mr. Bryan ran for president 'the second time and made antl-lmperlallem hla paramount issue tho people of Nebraska gave tha electoral vote of tha atata to Mc Kinley. A few years later they refused to elect a legislature that would send Mr. Bryan to the senate. They would not have him either in tha .White Houaa or the capltol. So when Mr. Taft criticises Bryan In Nebraska be is sure of a sympathetic audience. Tha knowledge of Mr. Bryan's dishonest course regarding tha Philippines Is not con fined to Nebraska. Everybody of average Intelligence i knowa that but for blm the treaty whlcQ gave the Islands to the United Statea would not have been ratified. Every body knowa that after having made It tha duty of the United States to take charge of tha Philippines Mr. Bryan did what he could to make the work of pacification dif ficult. Hla speeches and tha attitude of tha party ha led encouraged Agutnaldo to hold out a year longer than ha would oth erwise have done. That waa a calamity from which tha Flliplnoa have not yet re covered. It la true that Mr. Bryan, with wonder ful effrontery, ventures occasionally eta criticise tha Philippine policy of the Mc Kinley and Roosevelt administrations, but if ha ahould be nominated at Denver and abould continue hla crltlclama they would get him no votes. They would merely dts. gust tha voters who have steadily Indorsed that policy. On tha whole. It is rather a waala of time to expose Mr. Bryan'a Insin cere and malignant course regarding tha Philippines. It has become 4 matter of history and the American public la familiar with it. BITB Or WABHIXGTOX LIFE. Mlaov Scenes and lacldeats Bketeehoa oa tho Poet. Senator Warren of Wvnnilnar snrunar a surprise party on his colleagues a tew days ago ny acting aa Most in the senate restau rant of a party ot Indians belonging to tha Arapahoe and Bhoshone tribes. The rod men were In Washington transacting busi ness with various subordinates of the great father. Before tha annatnr'a lunchenn the red men attended a meeting of tha senate committee on Indian affairs and presented obiectlona to certain measures dealing with their lands In a manner both rorcerul and clever. At the luncheon the Indiana still fitrther showed their grasp ot modern wave and faiicaulan eultnre. Tn. stead of calling for Jerked beef and bear meat tha feathered and blanketed wttr rlora partook of aalada and tle. What la more, they ate pie with forks, which la noro than can be aald for every white person that appcara at the senate refectory. Also they used napkins as they should be used and didn't mistake them for hand kerchiefs or for blba. They partook of consomme and mock turtle and evwn showed a familiarity with the use of the soup spoon that la unknown to many of tneir white brethren. Great was the astonishment of persons who observed them to ses that they seemed 10 do on tcrma of good acquaintance with the menu card of tho pale face. Little Wolf, the aged chief of th iran.hu. who Is said to bo well on toward 100 yoars old and whose countenance la withered and weasened, waan't a bit abaahed and went through his part of the performance with as much easo and grace as If he had ben a debutante fresh frem finishing arhnni at pink tea. Tellow Dog waa aa suave as a diplomat and never once tried to cut his lettuce with his knlft. Senator Warren himself waa aurprlsed and was" obliged to call forth his best Massachusetts avenue manners to keep apace with hla guests. A Correspondent of tha Chlcaan KTaara commenting on tha havoc wrought In the senate by the grim reaper, tells of two well-dtflned superstitions of cmiitoh rn Is that a full senate means an early death of a senator. When the late Benator W. J. Bryan of Florida took hla autt ani tha two new senators from Oklahoma had been sworn In and George Peabody Wet more was finally chosen to succeed him self, thereby completing a full membership of tha senate for the first time In many years, tho veterans of the senate chamber began to whlscer anions- thnmaaivaa "TVv, will be the first to die?" Benator Latimer. wno mod soon after this tradition began, to be whispered about, was one of the men in the senate whose death waa tha leaat expected. mere la another common aunaratitinn about deaths in conarresa which uanaiiv verifies Itself, and that Is that not fewer man three members of each congreas die before their terms expire. Already this number has been exceeded In the Sixtieth congreas. although the Sixtieth congresa Is now only six months old. Technically. Senators Morgan and Pattua anouia Do added to tha liat becauso thav were, until they died, entitled to alt in a special session of tha filatleth miiitmi which really began Its existence March 4 last. As no speolal session waa held hnw ever, although the members drew their salaries from March 4. tha cone-reaa has eat only since tho first Monday in laat De- cemrjer. Bince then Representative George Smith Of Illlnnla mn 0.n... x,n " .WVI.MbWlB ill.llUI Jf , Latimer, Proctor and Bryan, have died. it is a true saying among tha llvlna- or the senate that, if they , were to choose the lima or death, they would almost invariahiv choose to die a senator of the United States. 1 This Is a tradition that reaches over Into-the other branch of mnir. where Speaker Cannon himself recently aia at a private dinner party given by ene of hla collcaguea that hla sole ambi tion In life was to die In the public aervlcs. Two letters, without address nth.,- .. the words "Washington, D. C," were received In the office of Speaker Cannon, and no mistake was made when they were delivered there. Upon one of the envelopes was a caricature showing "Uncle Joe" wearing a big elouch hat and holding In hla mouth the tilted cigar. Underneath thla were the words "Washinarton. n n" Tho second envelope bore a pen and Ink saeicn or the speaker, with no direction other than the word "Washington." An Idea of the almost limltloaa vHtv and volume of publications that are on sale at the shoo of tha suDerintendent of ilnfn. menu of congress may be derived from the fact that the catalogus contains works on almost every subject under the sun from bread making to tha cars of chickens, from tho explorations of the Canadian glaciers to tne attempts on the Ufa of the cotton boll weevil. Nearly all the farmers' bul. letins, which are put out by the Agricul tural department for the benefit of those who till tha soil, ara sold at K and m .nt. each.

Facts Spoil the Faro of m Veaerable Theory. New York World. There used to bo a comforting old super stition that hard timea bring compensation In the form of a reduced coat of living Tho facta Just now ara flying in the face of a venerable theory. For the prices of meats are raising by bounds, and the cause Is declared to lie In tho recent panic. Ordinarily the farmers in the middle west buy range cattle In tho fall, fatten them in tho winter and sell them in the aprlng. But last fall, wo are told, ths banks had no money to loan to the farmers. The farmers could buy no range cattle, there waa no great stock of fresh-fattened cattls for ths markets of this spring, and hero we are with the butchers' bills booming. People who missed the experience of having their bank accounts held up when the panic time was ripe get the opportunity to let their feelings loose now aa they pay their reck onings for porterhouse and sirloin. Inci dentally lamb and pork ara also up. This rls. in meat prices comes at the time of rising temperatures, which Is fort unate for those who combine strength of mind with tha desire to be thrifty. Warm weather meana fresh stuff from the gar dens; tho same season reduces the natural demand for dinner courses producing fat and beat. Families with the will to be as vegetarian as they csn for tha next four or five months need not be disturbed heavily in purse by the economic laws of the cattle mart.
