Neither the senate nor the house
agrees with th president about tha
secret service. Its una and the lefdsla

enr'Hs roads the rev-ords'dlffercntly
from tho president. The reault li an
overplus of strain from both ends of

charged with anaallln the dignity of

fives of conjjresM and uslnjr, the secret
FOrvice to pry Into the personal and
private affairs of members. The sen
ate has ordered a more specific Inquiry
Into the workings of the secret service,
the house has refused to receive the
president's message, alleRlni; thiit It
was beneath dignity to do so, and Indi
vidual members of both bodies are fill
ing the Congressional Record and the
public prints with explanations and
more or less direct attacks upon the
president. All of which Is calculated,
if not designed, to obscure the merits
of the controversy.
Congress was at a hopeless disad
vantage from tho first in Its bout with
the president over the use of the secret
service, as Its very opposition placed
It In the altitude of trying to hamper
the authorities in. their efforts to run
down law-breakers and uncover crime.
The president has asserted that he has
intended no attack upon any member
of congress, but he has, by citing the
records, made an unanswerable argu
ment upon the necessity for maintain
ing a secret service that shall be use
ful and effective. The effort of con
gress to assume nn air of Injured inno
cence and offended dignity does not
alter the case in any degree, or shake
popular support of the president's de
mand for removing the limitations put
on the secret service appropriation.
While surface Indications point to a
great breach between the president
and congress, with continuous quarrel
until the president's term expires, it
will undoubtedly develop that there Is
deep motive back of the agitation
designed to keep the executive and
congress apart. Rut about forty ac
tual working days yet remain to the
Sixtieth congress, and there are four
teen main appropriation bills to be
passed, making the time for considera
tion of general legislation, demanded
by the public, at best exceedingly lim
ited. The big corporations and the
powerful Interests that are opposing
the bill Increasing the powers of the
Interstate Commerce commission, that
are retarding the postal savings bank,
that are blocking statehood for Ari
zona and New Mexico, that are against
the improvement of the inland water
ways, that object to a real employers'
liability law and that are fighting a
dozen or more measures urged by the
president and approved by the people,
will gladly fan the flames between the
president and congress to make sure
that legislation on these 'subjects will
be Impossible at this session. ' This is

The death of William P. Snowden,
who has been very generally accorded
the honor of having been the first per
manent white settler In the city of
Omaha, again emphasizes' to our citi
zens the steady passing of the pio
neers. The first Burvcy of Omaha was be
gun in the late spring of the year 1S51
and completed during the following
summer and autumn. For anyone old
enough to vote to have lived here at
that time would have presaged an age
of 7 6 now, or six years more than tho
biblical three score and ten. The
late "Bill" Snowden had reached his
Igbty-fourth year and had made prac
tically all of his career after his serv
ice in the Mexican war right here in
Omaha. Only a few other pioneers
still remain whose coming dates back
from the first year of the city's found
ing. To grasp the full meaning of the
changes that have occurred under the
eyes of living persons by which a bit
of barren prairie has been transformed
Into the magnificent city which over
looks the Missouri today suggeats
miracle working. Omaha's pioneers
builded far better than they knew.

Law and order have won at least a
surface victory In the conviction In
Tennessee of eight men charged with
leadership In the Night Kider raids
and the recent murder of Colonel
Quentln Rankin. Six of the accused
have been found guilty in tho first de
gree and the court has Indicated that
the death sentence will bo Imposed
upon them, while two others have
been sentenced to twenty years in the
It is feared, however, and generally
believed that the finding of the courts
in these cases will be but. the negln
nlug of real trout'e. The Night Rid-
ers have already sworn vengeance
upon all who have taken part in bring
ing the guilty members of the band to
Justice and the conviction of the eight
men threatens to be followed by a ven
detta against the officers of the law
aud th? citizens who have upheld the
courts. A cowardly uttempt was
made to assassinate the attorney gen
eral Just before the conclusion of the
trial; a woman witness, who confessed
her knowledge of some of the move
ments of the band. In the hope of sav
ing her husband from puuUhment,
was taken from her home and brutally
whipped; notices have been sent to
witnesses and their friends that they
must leave the state or take chances
on their lives.
ruder such circumstances the task
before the authorities of Tenuessee is
a stupendous one. Governor Patter
ion has shown a laudable disposition
to put an, end to the lawlessness of
certain elements among the moun
tdneara and it will require a high or-
der of courage on his part to continue
hla efforts until tha work has been
done thoroughly.. If he succeeds in
checking lawlessness and protecting
life and property he will not only ills
charge an Imperative obligation to the
citizens of Tennessee, but he will set
an encouraging example to other
stetea of the south where feudists.
Night Riders and desperadoes in gen
eral have brought discredit On the
states of whoso citizens a great ma
jority are law-abiding, but where cer
tain types of law-breakers have been
able to defy authority with Impunity.

Writing of the earthquake at Mes
sina, K. Marion Crawford expresses
the belief that the ancient port will
be permitted to reinuiti a cemetery
and a new city founded somewhere
farther removed from the dangers of
volcanic eruptions and earthquakes.
Mr. Crawford has written many
stories of Italian life and Is accepted
as an authority on Italian history and
Italian affairs, but he falls to appre
ciate Itallau natuio or human nature
if ho really expects MesBina to be
Messina was old when Christ was
borti. For more than a thousand years
prior to that time the Sicilians and
Calahrlans knew of Its exposure to
earthquakes and eruptions and genera
tion after generation suffered the ef
fects of them, each confident, however,
of escaping a repetition of the city's
history. Messina was almost com
pletely destroyed about 125 years ago,
and yet before the fires bad been en
tirely suppressed in the ruins, the
work of rebuilding MesBina had be
gun. The new city was made more
beautiful than its predecessor, and it
is certain that the Messina yet to be
born will be larger and more beauti
ful than the Messina which was turned
into a cemetery in the closing hours
The sites of cities are seldom
changed by catastrophes, even when
there is reasonable certainty of recur
rence. The hope that the recurrence
may be long delayed is usually suffi
cient to cause spirited activity in the
rebuilding. San Francisco, greater
and bigger than ever, has risen over
the ruins caused by an earthquake a
few years ago and in spite of the fact
that scientists all agree that the
region is almost certain to be again
visited by earthquakes. Galveston,
almost completely destroyed by a tidal
wave, has been rebuilt on the old site,
defying the might of the sea by a
masonry wall which may or may not
withstand the force of a wave such as
swept the city to almost total destruc
tion. Johnstown "has been rebuilt in
the same gulley that, formed a mill
race for the flood that, washed the city
off the face of the earth. All along
the Ohio and Mississippi rivers towns
are Jbullt the. rlvec. bottoms with the
certainty that they will be disastrously
flooded each spring. Man is appar
ently never willing to confess his fear
of or defeat by nature.
So it may be taken for granted that
Messina will be rebuilt. It occupies
a position wnicn nas msae it com
mercially Important since the days of
Greek ascendancy. Its soil is fertile,
Its climate perfect and the force of
habit Is as strong with Italians as', with

President Roosavelt has called a
convention of noted charity workers
to meet soon In Washington to con
sider the best plan for caring for chil
dren who are utterly dependent on
charity. Statistics show that on De
cember 31, 1906, there were 1)2.561
children in orphan asylums and kin
dred institutions in the Culled State.
while probably 50,000 more were In
family homes under supervision of
charity organization workers. What
to do with these children Is the seri
ous question and for which the presi
dent has asked consideration. Among
the propositions that will be submitted
to the conference are the following:
Slmtild tlu-ro b established in one of thr
fi-di-ial departments a mittmml children's
Hhould the state Inspect the work of nil
chlld-i-nrlnK agem-lea. Including both Insti
tutions and home-finding societies?
Bhould the breaking of a home In- per
mitted for reasons of poveity or only fur
reasons of Inefficiency or linnior.illly ?
Should the sluto cduratlonnl uutlnuilii
fxerclse supervision over the educational
woik of orphan asylums and klmlrpd in
stitutions? Would It be helpful and denlratvle if some
permanent committer or ornnnlxution com

Study Hml Prevention of Tulierculnsls, the
National Child l.a!or committee, etc.. could
be established fur tin- purpose of carryitiK

sreiuliig hitter laws In relation t children,
better oiKHiilr.atlnns of chlld-carlnK agen
cies, better methods of relief anil aid lo any
hlldien thtouKhout the 1'nlled Slates?
There will be little difficulty in an-
swering all the president
in the affirmative, with the exception
of th flrt one. None will question
the good that will doubtless come
from the interchange of views and ex
periences of those vho have In-en
active In charity work among chlljren
in different seel ions of th-? country
and uuder different conditions. There
appears, however, to be no call for
the president's proposition to estab
lish in one of the fcdcr.il departments
a national children's hurexu. any more
than there Is for the establlishment of
a federal bureau for the blind, the
halt and the mulmed, the aged or the
destitute from any cause. Any move
ment thi? will result In ino Intelli
gent legislation by the states in the
treatment and training of dependent
children or that wi'l arouse philan
thropists to provide for their educa
tion will ba welcomed and approved,
but it is clearly a question with which
the federal government has nothing to
do, except as it has local Jurisdiction
over tha District of Columbia, tha
territories and insular possessions aud
tha Indian wards still under tribal relations.

That up-to-date monthly magazine
which goes by the name of American
Medicine contains a breezy editorial
discussion In its Inst Issue under the
heading, "What Is the Matter With
the Medical Profession?" The most

skeptical that a lot of things have
gone wrong with the position that
used to be filled by the family doctor.

only thing left for him to do Is "first aid"

Medical rrlen, themselves, are certainly
to blame for many of the conditions which
now confront them. With an almost fatu
ous adherence to the archaic tenets of by
gone days, they have clung to the Idea that
the practice of medicine is something so
far removed from business or trade that
the consideration of ways and means by
physicians Is ignoble, If nit diverting.
Mad medical men studied their patients
aa assiduously as they have diseases; had
they realized that the one great demand
of the sick Is for rrompt effects, or, at
least, prompt action; had they realized that
certain ends Justify certain means, we
would not find today doctors of divinity

driacal and neurotic men by "laying on of
