Culmination of all the recent agita
tion for Improved waterways seems
to show the United States virtually
committed to the project, for which,
under the unanimous pressure that
will be brought to bear, congress will
be ready enough to vote the funds,
even In the face of the declaration of
the president that "pork barrel" job
bery Is to be (illmlnated. But having
derided to prosecute the work, con
gress should turn all the details of de
velopment over to a commission com
petent to master the engineering and
commercial problems involved.
Various sectional claims -will nat
urally offer themselves for first con
sideration, each locality regarding Its
needs as the most Immediate. The
project, however, should be approached
aa a unit; Mr. Taft Is unquestionably
sound in his argument against piece
meal apportionment. The plan for a
great waterway highway from the
lakes to the gulf Is as much a single
enterprise, regardless of Immediate
local ambitions In any part of the val
ley, as Is the Panama canal. The
mighty river's waywardness will be
found difficult of control, and its com
plications must be handled solely with
an eye to the permanent establishment
of the future whole. Every step taken
ought to be with due consideration for
each succeeding step, every stage of
the work a bulwark of the complete
design. Individual and community in
terests will best be served If the com
mission in charge of the work be abso
lutely unhampered by local restric
tions, so that from its inception the
undertaking may be a national and not
a sectional affair, accomplishing aa it
grows the greatest good to the greatest
number within the range of the tribu
Omaha in the Census.
Preliminary preparations will soon
be under way for the counting of the
people a a foundation of the census
of 1910. What the census will show
up for Omaha is necessarily at this
time only within the realm of specula
tion, although with the data available
from various sources more or less ac
curate estimates may be made. This
much, however, is certain, that If the
census Is taken without any chang In
the city boundaries now existing, and
South Omaha, Dundee, Benson and
Florence all enumerated separately,
Omaha will not be credited with the
full population of the entire commu
nlty, which is really one. and '.t will
tuffer materially in the comparison
with other cities of its class which are
not burdened with such a handicap.
The question which our people, and
by this we mean not only the people of
Omaha, but of South Omaha and the
suburban towns as well, must consider
seriously Is whether they want to let
the census year of 1910 go by, which
will fix the relative ranks of rival cities
for ton years to come, without first
seizing the opportunity to consolidate
under one municipal government and
leap the advantages which that con
solldatlon would give, but which would
be lost for ten years If delayed more
than a few months longer.
This subject presents a problem the
most far-reaching that is before us.
Its solution, or failure of solution, will
have a direct bearing on the Immediate
future of the community. It is a prob
lem which must be grappled with soon
or not at all. Consolidation in time
for the 1910 census is by no means an
Impossibility, but it will not come of
The Gompers Case.
The cas of Samuel Gompers and his
associates has been advanced another
stage by the decision of the supreme
court of the District of Columbia that
the labor leaders had been properly ad
judged guilty of contempt In violat
lng an Injunction directed to them.
It will be noted that the supreme
justice of the court dissents from the
conclusions of hla associates, "or con
stitutlonal grounds," which will give
Mr. Oompera and his friends additional
courage to appeal the case to the su
preme court of the United States. The
offense being criminal one, the quea
tlon whether an appeal may be taken
has yet to be determined, but If a con
stitutlonal point ia Involved It will be
The argument of the District of
Columbia court, that a citizen must
pursue the orderly course of appeal
rather than decide for himself when
he shall or shall not obey the man
date of a court. Is fundamentally
sound, but Mr. Gompers haa contended
that It does not apply to the facts in
his case. If he can maintain his posi
tion that the Injunction waa Illegally
Issued and that hla right of free speech
wag at stake In his disobedience, the
supremo court will certainly take juris
diction of an appeal of this particular
case, and determine finally the limits

he calmly goes on footing the bills. It
In order for the practical man of
affairs, confronted with such a ahow-

State department, to ask if It is nec

such a marked degree. The consular

arises, that their presence at remote

It has been common practice among
the nations to merge the interests of

slight, and where no International

approved two of the most powerful
vessels of the Dreadnaught class, with
the mental reservation among naval
officers that in a few years these, the
swiftest and most marvelous of fight
ing ships, will be obsolete. There
seems to be no limit to the develop
ment of the navies, except the limit on
ability to foot the bills.

late Justice Peckham on the supreme

"Era of Peaceful Progress."
While our battleship North Dakota was
undergoing preliminary trials two note
worthy fighting vessels were launched In
Europe, the British Indefatigable and the
French! Mlrabeau. The Indefatigable
which ia a battleship In all but name, Is
expected to make twenty-seven knots, and
is of equal power and speed. The Mlrabeau
Is the fifth French dreadnaught. Scarcely
a day passes that does Dot witness either
the launch or the test of a tremendous
warship somewhere, and yet thla Is an
"era of peaceful progress."
Assailing Ancient Institutions.

for a revision of the method of approprla

waterways of the country are voted. It Is

Chairman Mark Looking; Away from
the Peerless On.
When Norman E. Mack says," "I do not
believe that Bryan will be the nexa demo
cratic candidate for the presidency," he
may be expressing a feeling common to
most democrats; yet his words have a
peculiar significance for his fellow party
men In Erie county. Mr. Mack Is chair
man of the democratic national committee.
He holds that place because In the last
campaign he was persona grata to Mr.
Bryan. He has been tho leader of what may
be called radical democracy In his county
for many years. With more schooling and
less calm than Mr. Conners, he has been
Just r.s unsatisfactory to the old-time
Cleveland democrats of Buffalo, whose
Ideals have been much higher than their
hope of controlling primaries.
Therefore, It la a hopeful augury for
democracy that Mr. Mack, though, of
course, uncommitted to any one candidate,
seems to be turning with hope to Judson
Harmon, the democratic, governor of Ohio,
whom Mr. Cleveland trusted, and on whom
all wings of the party might be able to
unite. Mr. Mack's utterance Is a straw
which shows which way the wind Is blow

W. D. Nesblt, In Chicago Post.
It hushed the sound of winter's hosts, of
winter's trumpet shrill, .
The drums that thrummed in wlnter'iA
van all suddenly grew still.
For from the south the breezes ran and
shook the flaming leaves.
And crooned a chord of dulcetness below
the vlne-olad eaves;
They brought a thousand mingled scents
of pungent mink and musk.
And springtime echoed through tha day
from crystal dawn to dusk.
A drowsy haze across tho west that gleams
with shifting hues.
A Jeweled sky that glimmers with the
rarest turquoise blues,
And woods that are a fairyland of scarlet
and of gold,
And vagrant bees that drain the last bravo
blooms of what they hold,
And marching stars that swing, as lamps
aa twilight Idles on.
While moonlight silvers all the world from
dreaming duBk to dawn.
The songs of Indian summertime they
murmur In the heart.
Attuned to leaves and hills avnd sky, of
which they are a part
The half -heard minor melodies that bint
of throbbing tones.
And yet elude the eager graap the songs
which no one owns, .
But which the wind and sun and all the
woods and meadows weave
Of all the charm and softneas from tha
silent dawn to eve.
It hushed the sound of winter's hosts,
and winter's thrumming drums,
Fell silent when the word went forth!
"Now Indian summer comes"
And then she came, a dusky maid, a god-
dess tinted bronze,
Her arms A-heap with marvel-dusks, a
heap with marvel-dawns;
And eo her spell Is on cur hearts and
holds us overlong.
With every dawn a miracle autd every;
dusk a song.
