Let the Attorney General Act.
By tb appointment by Governor
Shallenberger of Thomaa J. Majors to
be a member of the nw State Normal
board a duty la devolved upon Attor
ney General Thompson which he
should not ehlrk. The selection of a
state senator for this position Is In
flagrant defiance of the constitution,
to say nothing of violating one of its
most salutary provisions. Section 13
of article 111 of the constitution of Ne
braska reads as follows:
No person elected to the legislature ahall
receive any civil appointment within thla
atate from the governor and senate during
the term for which he has been elected.
And all such appointments and all votes
given for any such member or any such
appointment ahall be void.
No one will question that a place on
the State Normal board Is a civil ap
pointment. The appointment Is made
by the governor and confirmed by the
senate. The appointment is made
during the term for which Mr. Majors
had been elected a member of the sen
ate, and he both before and after the
appointment continued to act as 8
member of the atate senate. The bill
legislating the old Board of Education
out of office and creating a new normal
board was In reality Senator Major'8
bill. It wai put through the legisla
ture by his efforts and his appointment
as a republican by a. democratic gov
ernor was In recognition of services
rendered to the democrats In helping
them to put through their bills.
If this appointment of a member of
the legislature to a civil office at the
hands of the state executive is allowed
to stand It will be but the forerunner
of the payment of other debts by the
appointment of other members of the
legislature to other lucrative offices.
It will set the precedent for future
governors to buy legislative support
for all sorts of measures by promising
appointive Jobs to senators and rep
resentatives. This is precisely what
the framers of our constitution had in
mind when they inserted In that docu
ment the prohibition of such appoint
Attorney General Thompson should
without delay institute quo warranto
proceedings against Thomas J. Majors
as member of the new State Normal
board and let the court say whether
the constitution of Nebraska still lives.
Grateful Italy.
The reception, of former President
Roosevelt at Naples cannot but be
pleasing not only to himself, but to
the people of the United States. The
enthusiastic greeting extended him
cannot be Interpreted in any other
way than a double one.. To the man
Roosevelt the people of the Italian
city simply gave expression for the
nation. As a man his character ia un
doubtedly admired, but to Roosevelt,
honored as president of a nation which
has offered a congenial home to so
many of the Italian people,, and which
answered so promptly and generously
the call from stricken Sicily, an equal
tribute was given.
Personally, Mr. Roosevelt, In bis
capacity as president, had no small
part in the -response to the appeal of
a suffering people, a response wel
come as much for Its promptness as
tor its magnitude. It was the first
practical helping hand reached out to
them from beyond the border lines of
their own country and of such gen
erous proportions aa to light the lamp
of hope again In the desolated homes.
The Italians are not a people to for
get such an act.
Early Vote on the Tariff.
The house will vote on the tariff
bill Friday of this week. That has
been decreed by the committee on
rules. This is in line with the recom
mendation ot President Taft that con
gress proceed with dispatch to trans
act the business for which it was
called, and adjourn at the earliest
possible moment. The tariff la pri
marily a business proposition, and un
till the tariff bill is finally disposed of
business of all kinds must necessarily
halt and be done on a hand-to-mouth
basis. Until the new schedules are de
termined no large enterprises looking
to the future can safely be under
taken, so Intimately are the protected
and unprotected4 industries of the
country related. With the exercise of
the utmost diligence the time con
sumed la passing a tariff law is con
siderable without counting the months
of uncertainty which preceded the
actual convening of the session.
This is the anawer to those who
deprecate haste and charge that the
bill is being put through under whip
and spur without sufficient time al
lowed to debate Its provisions. No one
knows better than those in congress
who are making this charge how hol
low It ls. The speeches In congress on
the tariff are not Intended, nor ex
pected, to Influence the determination
of a single schedule. They are simply
for the consumption ot the constitu
encies of the congressmen who make
tbem and for use In subsequent cam
paigns. The real work on the tariff
bill has been and la being done In the
committees of the house and senate,
and these committees are utilizing the
Information gathered by months of in
quiry and the knowledge of past ex
perience In tariff legislation and the
operation ot previous measures.
In sending the measure promptly to
the senate the house will do the coun
try a service in a business way. By so
doing the entire matter can be settled,
congress adjourn and the business of
the country readjust itself to the new
conditions before the season of fall ac
tivities 'ahall set In. The senate com
mittee has been buaily working on the
measure and no great delay in report
ing it to that body is anticipated. With
the usual custom of that body more or
less debate will be indulged in, suf
ficient at least for all campaign pur-
poses, but the country wants no un
reasonable delay, but rather prefers
promptness to perfection.
Just Suppose.
Man Is mortal. No one knows
when the next one of us may be called.
Ex-Governor Poynter answered the
final summons while making an appeal
to Governor Shallenberger In behalf
of a legislative measure awaiting his
Just suppose conditions had been
reversed and instead of the ex-governor,
the governor had been the one
to succumb to the fatal stroke.
If Governor Shallenberger should
die the duties of chief executive would
Immediately pass to Lieutenant Gov
ernor Hopewell from a democrat to
a republican.
Such a calamity, which, of course,
we hope may not occur, would transfer
control of all the patronage vested by
the late legislature In the governor, so
that the offices they were so careful to
create would be filled by republicans
Instead of democrats.
All the trouble the legislature went
to to take the appointive power away
from other state, officers and state
boards now controlled by republicans
and vest them exclusively in the gov
ernor simply because he happens to be
a democrat would be in vain.
Even the advertising pap In the
publication of constitutional amend
ments which the peanut lawmakers
took away from the republican secre
tary of state and gave to the demo
cratic governor would fall to reach Its
destination and would go back to re
publican newspapers Instead of to
democratic quilt drivers.
The very thought that it might have
been Governor Shallenberger instead
of ex-Governor Poynter must come
near giving a lot of democratic pie
biters heart failure themselves.
Repressing: Speculation.
The committee appointed by Gov
ernor Hughes of New York to Investi
gate the various stock exchanges of
the metropolis and report on the
abuses, If any, has completed its in
vestigations and is now engaged In
formulating its report. The person
nel of the commission is such as to give
to Us findings the stamp of author
ity. It 1b composed of men noted both
for their ability In academic research
and for large and practical business
experience In a large way. While the
report has not been formulated, it Is
given out that the commission has ar
rived at some definite conclusions
which will be at variance with the
opinions of many who have made only
a superficial study of the questions In
volved. Notable along this line is the
statement that dealing in futures ia
not harmful to either the prodncer or
consumer, but, on the other hand, Is
actually beneficial, simply having an
evening process in distributing the
hazard of the seasons and the mar
kets. '
In making this statement the com
mission Is careful to differentiate be-,
tween legitimate dealing in futures
and gambling pure and simple. Re
garding this there can be no two opin
ions. Concerning the report a finan
cial agency, from direct information,
makes the following statement:
The subject of short Belling and deallnga
In futurea will be dlacuased extensively,
aaya the report, and It Is understood to be
the conclualon of the commission that the
abolition of these methoda ot speculation
would be injurious to the beat lntereata of
business. An effort will be made to set
forth the reasons for this conclusion aa
clearly and aa etmply aa possible for the
education of the public and to show that
the public clamor for reform In these fea-
turea la not baaed on aound principles.
The gambling spirit In Wall street will be
deprecated, but it will be conceded that no
law can altogether eradicate It. It la prob
able that some measures will be advocated
to do away with wash sales and match or
ders, although In Just what manner the
commlaaion will treat thla subject cannot
be learned.
If the commission can devise some
method which will eliminate the
gambling feature Incident to manlpu
lated markets it will have accom
plished a great aervice to the country.
Scarcely less helpful would be a clear
and conclusive definition of legitimate
dealings In futures, based on produc
tion yet to come or deliveries yet to
be made, as contrasted with gambling
deals that ought to be suppressed.

A combination cloud of amoke and fog
settled down on New York and adjacent
territory last Friday afternoon, producing
darknesa for three houra rivalling the-beat
efforts of Iondon. The gloom annoyedand
dlsguated All but two classes of people.
Klectrlo light and gas companies managed
to keep on a smiling front, for in those
three miserable hours they disposed of
76,000 worth of their product. Conditions
about the city were auch that traffic waa
aerlously Impeded. Few craft moved on
the bay and the East and Hudson rivers,
except the ferries, and these boats were
driven at reduced speed and at less fre
quent Intervals. Incoming trains were de
layed because the signals were not easily
discernible through the mist. "L" trains
were alow from the same reasons, and
even atreet traffic suffered.
So great has become the Increase In pas
senger traffic over the varloua transpor
tation lines of thla city that statisticians
estimate that at the present time more
than 3,600,000 people are transported dally.
This enormous traffic has overtaxed ths
facilities of transportation, though tem
porary relief was obtained by the construc
tion of the Subway.
The population of Manhattan and the
Bronx Is nearly 60 per cent greater and
their area less than 26 per cent of that
of the other three boroughs combined, and
yet a person can travel over ten miles of
road In Manhattan and the Bronx In less
than half the time spent In traveling the
same distance through sny other section
of the city, and of the 3.500,000 people trans
ported dally throughout the entire city
2,000.000 are csrrled by the railways oper
ating In the boroughs of Manhattan and
the Bronx.
"It la startlii.g to read from the state
ment of the Public Service commission,"
says the Brooklyn Eagle, "that the asaeta
of the traction companiea of Manhattan
and the Bronx, which at the time of the

Free medical examination of policy
holders every five years as a means of
prolonging hitman life was suggested to the
Association of Life Insurance Presidents
In New York by Dr. Burnalrie Foster,
editor of the St. Paul Medical Journal.
Such examinations, he declared, would re
veal the liclplent stages of unsuspected dis
eases could be cured or at least re
tarded, and the result, he thought, would
add from five to ten years to the average
life of the policyholders, thus saving many
millions annually to the companies.
The Insurance officers present did not
receive the suggestion with much favor.
It was not practical, they said, analnly
on account of the expense Involved ano.
partly because of , the suspicion with
which the ordinary policyholder would
view any attempt to examine him again.
Just as a taxlcab waa passing down
Broadway near the post office the other
afternoon, a man of abstracted meln step
ped from the curb directly In front of the

The chauffeur did not move, nor did he
aound his horn. When wlthhln a few feet
of the man he reduced speeed a bit, and
leaning over the dashboard, reached out
his arm and gave the deftest sort of s

while the chauffeur settled back in his
