President Taft's announcement that
he will make no recess appointments,
particularly of federal Judges, until
congress meets has the elements of
good temper, regard for the quality
of the public service and knowledge of
political practicalities. There is no
friction between the president and the
senate. While Mr. Taft will not idly
provoke a conflict which would be dis
astrous and would offer little prospect
of party or public benefit, neither
would he be apt to yield to senatorial
dictation against his best judgment.
Federal judgeships are positions of
rapidly growing importance. The
spreading business of the country
brings more and more within the
Jurisdiction of these tribunals the af

more and more necessary that the fed
eral courts should proceed evenly and

it is fair to say so, they be kept as
clear as possible from controversial
The senate is extremely sensitive
about Judiciary appointments and very
sensitive about recess appointments
made without consultation. Mr. Taft
doubtless recalls previous embarrass
ments and confusion in .the courts
from these causes and wisely he de
cides that the way to escape trouble
is to not let It begin. It may be sus
pected that the president is willing to
escape the pressure during the tension
of travel and labor that he has laid
out for himself this fall. On all ac
counts the announcement touches an
Secretary Knox, to whom congress
Intrusted $100,000 for the purpose, is
putting at work a force of experts to
collect information on the extension of
foreign commerce. The New York
Evening Post commends the effort, but
reminds the country that it would be
an error to Indulge false hopes of re
sults from this small sum of money.
The Post offers the advice that the
practical way of using the fund would
be to concentrate it on data covering
exactly the kind of goods, the packing
and shipping and the customs of credit
to which the consuming people of each
nation are accustomed. Such data are
already familiar In consular reports,
but the American business man either
has a short memory or he really does
not care about foreign trade.
Last year Mr. J. J. Mill, who is an
observer not to be neglected, said that
the sale of American manufactures In
foreign markets is an idle dream. As
less and less of our agricultural
products can be spared for foreign
countries, the total of our foreign
sales will be smaller, In spite of de
partment literature and consular fig
ures. One public man bas said that
the trade of a state like Illinois is
worth more than that of all Europe.
If the assertion Is true, . it is not
strange that American business " men
are careless of details in sending their
goods abroad to countries of stinted
consumption and small economies. At
any rate we cannot sell goods to these
people when the prices are too high
for them and the styles do not suit
Our national fiscal policy is to cre
ate an Industrial market to consume
the total of our agricultural product.

brand of commerce which flourishes
most luxuriantly. All we can say of
ourselves Is that If we are going to
export we should learn how to do it
to the best advantage. Foodstuffs ex
port themselves. Manufactured goods
are competitive commodities. The
methods of sale must follow the lines
recommended by established trade
customs and common sense.
A Legislative Scon tin? Party.
A commission made up of members7
of the New York legislature is making
a tour of the central west for the pur
pose of investigating the practical op
eration of laws providing for direct
primary nomination in connection
with the legislation on this subject
which has been urged by Governor
Hughes. The commission is Scheduled
to circle through Illinois, Wisconsin,
Minnesota and Kansas, In all of which
states direct primary laws have been
enacted and have been applied for
longer or shorter periods.
The significance of this legislative
scouting expedition is not that it is
looking Into the workings of direct
nomination machinery, but that the
legislature of New York should be
willing to admit that It may have
something to learn from the experi
ence of other states. This concession
is striking principally by contrast, be
cause the average state legislature is
so certain of its own infallible wisdom
and Its own supreme ability that It
undertakes to grapple with the most
momentous problems without inquir
ing, or even caring, what other states
may have done when confronted with
the aame conditions. . Thus one state
after another has often made the same
blunder, and laws with noticeable de
fects have been enacted which could
easily have been remedied oy taking
heed to the course of similar legisla
Only recently a few states have es
tablished legislative reference libraries
and undertaken to give their law
makers access to the material thus
complied, but only occasionally has a
legislature done what the New York
legislature p now doing In sending a
commission out in the field to secure
information that is not In the books
and cannot be gotten out of official re
ports. It is possible we may some day
evolve something like a clearing house
of state legislation, but in the Interval
independent and self-sufficient law fac
tories, will be filling the statute books
with a hodgepodge of half-baked legis
lation for which the people will con
tinue to foot the bills.
" Trained Runes.
Among the new activities of recent
years the trained professional nurse
and the half-trained novice nurse play
a very large part in social economy. Be
ing women, they are inevitably sus
ceptible to social influences and quick
to demand social privileges, not only
in the homes where they are employed,
but In the institutions where they
In the Henrotin hospital of Chicago
the sixty nurses make certain demands
which the doctors dislike, but which
may cause trouble. The nurses wish
to remain away from the school at
night when they are not on duty, to
have pass keys, to have servants for
answering general bells. Other de
mands have a similar object of per
sonal liberty and comfort. They will
probably not win all at once, but the
incident suggests that the modern
business of the trained nurse Is a sub
ject and a class by no means servile
Civilization has apparently stopped
trying to regulate cooks, but nurses
come on a different plane. It Is a
For some reason or other we have
not heard any outcry lately about the
unhealthful water served In Omaha,
although, so far as we know, it Is the
same sort of water that a few months
ago was threatening all sorts of com
municable diseases. But then, that
was while the $6,500,000 water bond
proposition was pending, and as soon
as that was carried It, of course, clari

Miss Jane Addams keeps up a coy

Record of Wasted Lives Dae to One
New York World.
In May 621 persons were drowned in the
United States; In June 1,178. The figures
for Jujy will show a larger total. August,
the height of the vacation season, will set
the record of wasted lives. Every Satur
day afternoon and Sunday In every city
and considerable rural region a long roll
is written ofjhe names of the drowned.
Some of these deatha are due to faulty
supervision or management of excursion
boats, but neglect Is the one great cause.
Every child should wlm. The number
of skilled swimmers drowned Is propor
tionately small; and perhapa the most fre
quent cause of the drowning of a swimmer
Is the terror of some nonswlmmer whom
be is trying to save, and who pull him
down. Men are aometime drowned by
diving in shallow water or being thrown
agalnat piers or posts, but with sea room
a good swimmer Is safa even In rough
aurf or waves.
Every army and navy cadet, every stu
dent In the larger colleges, Is taught to
swim. The rule should be universal In
girls' schools. The commonest of fatal
midsummer accident, the swamping or
capsizing of a boat, has no terrors for a
good swimmer on hi ' own account. He
can get ashore if there is no nonswlmmer
to drag him under. A fair swimmer can
keep his head above water until help
come. Even a poor awlmmer get from
hi little knowledge the benefit of keeping
cool In danger. Being thrown Into the
water ahould not mean for him a senseless
panic which menaces hla life and the lives
of bis friends.

Beatrice Express: The Omaha World
Herald breaks out, as expected, In a spasm
of denunciation over the tariff bill a
spasm which was timely, appropriate and
in good form, considering the source. Af
ter discharging nearly two columns of
complaint, the paper shouts What are
honest and Intelligent republicans going
to do about it?" It Is easy to see what
th World-Herald want them to do. Its
first duty Is to make republican dissatis
fied with th tariff measure, and Its sec
ond duty Is to cunningly lead them to
espouse the cause of the democratic party.
Its prime purpose I not to benefit the
people, but benefit the party.
Btromsburg New: In view of the great
stress which the recent democratic state
platform convention placed upon the non
partisan Idea that has recently taken such
deep root In the democrat lo party, it might
be interesting to note the number of laws
passed by the democratic legislature last
winter to legislate republican Cut of Job
and fill their place with democrat. If
the Shallenberger administration want to
follow the old political maxim, "To the
victor belong the spoil," they have the
opportunity to follow it, but they should at
least have enough consistency to monopo
lise the offices, which they did to the ex
treme limit, last winter, and not at the
same time wear th hypocritical mantle
of nonpartisanshlp while thy arc smug
gling the spoil of political partisanship
of th rankest kind ever exhibited in the
history of th auto.
Beatrice Bun: The Omaha World
Herald has been declaring that th
prealdent would do nothing but go
through the motion of insisting upon
downward revision of the tariff. When
we read In the Washington dis
patches that the president had brought
the tariff plunderer Into camp and com
pelled them to tote fair, we at once looked
to the W.-H. for an expreealon of approval.
Unhappily, it isn't ther. The democratic
organ contend that the- tariff bill, as
finally agreed upon, doe not fulfill party
promise. Is revision upward instead of
downward, and Is practically what the
trust wanted. Th plain, common citizen
