Perhaps the beat and moat effective
answer to the charge that the .work of
the Chtcaga convention In being cnt
out and dictated from Washington Is
the keen content now in progress over
the 'selection of a candidate for w the
vice presidency. Just as Mr. Tsft se
cured the support of a , majority of the
delegates to the convention because he
waa the choice of the republican voters
of the different states, bo It is prom
ised his running mate will be'mjlefcted
by the delegates to the convention,
after a careful consideration sal been
given to the merlta and claims of the
different candidates presented. ".
There is no paucity of material from
which the vice presidential candidate
may be chosen. Governor Hughes of

The contest over -the- selection, of a

ATHLETICS AND STATURE.
The president of one of the most Im
portant universities of Japan has re
cently made a report upon the effects
of athletics upon the growth of the
Japanese youth, and couples with it a
prediction that it will not, be many
years before the Japanese become as
tall as the average of Americans or
Europeans. The prediction Is not based
upon any theory, but upon the posi
tive resulfe obtained by experiments,
and la. therefore, a matter of Interest
It appears that the mikado appointed
a commission some fifteen years ago to
Investigate and report upon the causes
for the interior alxe of the Japanese.
The commission went Into the Investi
gation most thoroughly,,- making ,a
study of the Japanese diet, mode of life
end all. their habits. Jt found that
the Japanese students and youth were
usually very well developed above the
waist and In the arms, but that their
lega were Bhort and weak. Thla led to
an Investigation of the sports of the
students, with the discovery-that the
Japanese boys pay much attention to
boxing, wrestling and sword contests,
and that in all of the schoola there
were no playa or exercises calling tor
development of the lega. ,
On receiving the report of the com
mission, the mikado issued a command
that not only those in the schools, but
adulta aa well, must sit less and walk
more than theyhad been accustomed
to doing; that they should stand
straight and take such exercises aa
were prescribed to strengthen their
legs and develop their height. Gym
nasiums' were established la schoola
and colleges and a general bracing up
was ordered throughout the empire.
The commission now reports that as a
result of thli order and the people'C
compliance with it. the younger Jap
anese are taller than tbosgFtf the aame
age were fifteen years ago, and that
the average height of tjbj Japanese
youth it fully twJ Inches mor than
the average before the new regime waa
Inaugurated. The lesson carries Ha own
moral. It simply shows the beneficial
results that follow rational life and ex
ercise. Aa physical health is the great
est reaource of a nation, Japan's ex
perience ahould be an Incentive to the
rest of the world. Proper diet and
proper exercise reduce doctors bills.
RtOlSTSMNO tASjD TITLES,
New York has passed a law relating
to the registry of land titles that was
much talked . Of aame years ago,; but
haa of late been little agitated. It waa
known aa the Torrene ays'-em. and the
New York law la bat a Blight modifi
cation of the old plan. .--.-.'K
By the provisions, of jhe new.4aw,
any propertyowner "can et hit title
registered by submitting to tne courts
the report of any official examiner,
title Insurance company or attorney
especially licensed for examination.
Notice ia given by personal eervlce or
by publication to all adverse claimants
and the court, after taking teetlmony.
If any conflict ia offered, decides in
whom the title Is vested.' and a certifi
cate is Issued which is accepted aa con
clusive evidence as tq'the. ownership of
the property. A sale Is perfected by
the transfer of a deed with the certifi
cate and the purchaser secures a new
certificate , from the proper official.
Mortgage llena ar noted njhe certifi
cates and Judgraenta do not become
liens until they have bee entered
upon the registration books. ;
Claimants against property, are as
sured, in a way, by a fee of 1 mill on
the dollar, which la charged for the
registration, and which becomes an as
surance fund tor claimant .ho may
have valid claims that susses aai pre-
sen ted st the hearing which settled
the question of ownership. The claim
ant may recover by ault agalnat this
fund, hut only for the value of the
property at the time the certificate of
ownership waa granted. He can not
bring suit after a lapse of years for
the Increased value of the property or
for any improvementa that have been
made upon It. Under the New York
law the use of this plan of registration
of land titles Is optional. Any proper-
tyownera who prefer the older and
more cumbersome systems of transfer
and title Inspection may adhere to
th.em, but the indications are that the
new plan will be generally followed
Loan companies and investors prefer
the new system as' facilitating trans
fers, the placing of loans and generally
simplifying all real estate transactions,
The plan is already working In eight
states, with a reported result of greatly
decreasing the cost of transfers and
checking litigation over land titles.
FAY VF THE TEA CHKHS.
The Omaha Board of Education has
before it a petition for an Increase In
salary, signed by the members of the
high school teaching staff. In support
of their request for increased pay the
teachers cite as examples the pay In
fourteen other states where the rate
Is higher than It Is in Omaha. A num
ber of cltlea might be found in which
the rate la lower, but of thla nothing
is said. The question ia one that re
quires careful consideration and ahould
be given the fullest inquiry before it
la finally decided.
No objection can be raised to the
payment of adequate wages to compe
tent teachers, and Omaha certainly
wants the best to be had. On the
other hand, Omaha citizens who pay
for the support of the public schools
do not care to have the burden of tax
ation unreasonably Increased. While
their sympathy will undoubtedly 'ex
tend to the teachers, the practical side
of the ouetttton must be given full
weight la whatever decision Is reached.
If the Board of Education can find
means whereby the advance in pay sug
gested may be granted without adding
heavily to the expenses of the school
no criticism will be raised, but with a
school population that Is steadily In
creasing and thereby adding to the
annual cost of maintaining the public
schools, an advance in the salary roll
Is a problem more serious than It is in
some of the cities .cited at examples
where conditions are much different
from those In Omaha. f The teachers
may rest assured that their services
are appreciated and will be requited as
liberally as the city can afford. .
It la not too early to remind the
votera that the constitutional amend
ments submitted by the last legislature
are worthy of careful consideration and
support. Under the amended primary
election proclamation the voters will
have the privilege of registering their
feelings on this at the primary election.
If the amendments receive a majority
vote of either party at the primary,
they will be incorporated as a part of
the regular ticket of that party and all
straight party votes will be registered
as la favor of the amendments.
The first amendment refers to the
investment of the permanent school
fund and is Intended to loosen bands
that have restricted the usefulness of
thla fund and cut off a large sum of
revenue. The other reWfto the num
ber of Judges on the supreme bench

SECRETARY TAfTS SUCCESSOR.
The early retirement of Mr. Taft
from tho cabinet serves to direct atten
tion to the importance that has been
lent to the position of secretary of
war during his administration of the
affairs of that department. Prior to his
acceptance of the portfolio of war in
the president's cabinet, the position
waa not Considered particularly desir
able except to men who had had mili
tary experience or were especially In
terested in military affairs. In times of
peace the secretary of war was simply
the head of one of the big executive
departments of the government,
charged with a 'great deal of detail
work. Mr. Taft has made It the most
prominent department of the govern
ment, at least so far aa general inter
est Is concerned. He iias'had direct
charge of the Philippines, the Panama
canal and the government's occupation
of Cuba, three of the big problems be
fore the administration.
, fl'he War department ia co longer a
war office alone. It now embraces ac
tivities entirely alien to purely military
affairs, department which in most
European countrlea would be of'cab
lnet rank. While Cuba Is still occu

structlon and the Philippines still un

The United States cannot be expected to
remain in Cuba Indefinitely. If It Is under
an obligation to organise Cuba for good
self-government, Cuba Is under at least as
strong an obligation to facilitate and ex
pedite that organisation aa much as possi
ble. We are Inclined to think that the
ordering of these elections is the best possi
ble way of moving Cuba to fulfill that
obligation. ' There have been those in that
island who have desired American occupa
tion to endure aa long as possible, and
who therefore have actually discouraged
and delayed preparations for renewed au
tonomy. It is well that they ahould be re
minded that such tactlca will not perma

One of the curious sights of the Italian

There are dosena of these placea In that

whole width of the shop front. The macn
