No Im portant committee chairmanship, ex cept appropriation, which Fitzgerald of New York gets, falls to a northern congressman. But since these honors go according to priority, they had to go to southern men. The force of tba situation shows how shifting have been the sands of northern democracy; or, we might say, the democracy, since the south, of course, votes the ticket by tradition and habit. There has been no coherent democracy north of 'Ma son's and Dixon's line since 1896. The old organization that year went down with the "crown of thorns" and the "cross of gold" and did not come up again until temporary disaffection In republican ranks permitted Us resur rection. Many democrats believe that Mr. Bryan long ago determined that If he could not be president, neither could any other democrat not of his school and naming during his day. Thus far none has, and thus far none seems to have any bright prospect of It. Mr. Bryan Is still on hand. He says so himself; says that while no longer a candidate for office, he remains in politics. The party will be short sighted to attempt to reckon upon plans for 1912 without him. Let it look again at the Sixty-second con gress and note the dominance of the south of that part of the party that Is nlmated only by a desire for spoils and power. action. If there Is truth in the reporj (primary law would permit (he same of President blur.' ill health, that ' voter; If he ao desired, to help nonil beconies a complicating element, for.nate candidates on the republican upon his denth, If not before, the ' ticket at one primary, on the demo- stnolderlng embers of revolution are ' cratlc ticket at another and on the so- expected to burst Into active and for midable flame. Now that Lorlmer's seat la secure, we hope Tillman will dry his eyes and Bailey cease to sob. Mr. Ballinger certainly could not have, asked any more from the presi dent than that letter gave him. A retailers' convention without the usual denouncement of the "cat" houses would not be the real thing. It Is gratifying to know, however, that those cruel kidnapers were foiled In their attempt to steal Tom Watson. Chicago now has only three mem bers In the president's cabinet. Does Mr. Taft mean to discriminate against that city? At any rate, the law foundry at Lin coln seema to be turning 'out as big a volume of business as ever Irrespective of the condition of the market. Twenty thousand American soldiers stationed on the Mexican borders are likely to have quieting effect, even on tempestuous temperaments. Gifford Plnchot aaya he la pleased with the president's appointment of Mr. Fisher to succeed Mr. Ballinger. Let Mr. Fisher, then, take bU seat. Postmaster Thomas Is quoted as saying that Secretary Ballinger should bar resigned long ago for the party's good. Well, perhaps there are others. And what will defenseless Omaha do with all Its soldier gone from the two military posts relied on for pro tectlon If the Japs should suddenly swoop down on us? Certain western cities, some of whose theaters are not on Easy street, may take courage, for New York's New theater has been closed for lack of profitable patronage'. And now "Wabash Trainmen Get 10 Per Cent Increase." What, on the heels of the refusal of the Interstate Commerce commission to authorize thoae advanced rates! Canada'i Debt to the United States. Sir Wilfred Laurier In bla speech on reciprocity before the Ottawa Parlia ment went out of his way to dignify Champ (Mark's antics ovef annexation. The premier could have done his peo ple better service by seeking to allay agitation on tbls subject, rather than stir It up. He must know that the United Slates Is sincere in its propos als for a reciprocal trade relationship and has no thought whatever of an nexing Canada, not for the present, anyway. Sir Wilfred did not have to remind us of Canada's loyalty to England, or to point out that Canadians were born Under the same flag as the ancestors of Americans, "a flag under which Americans may have suffered oppres sion, but which to Canada has been, and Is more than ever, the emblem of freedom" It la because Americans suffered and then refused longer to suffer under that flag that today It Is 'the emblem of freedom" In Canada. The revolutionists of America having successfully resisted the oppressions under that flag, made it possible for the colonists of Canada to escape them. The premier's speech must be Just a trifle disappointing to Americans who have ao carefully guarded against the spirit of Jingoism in the late negotiations. clallst ticket at still another. While otir experience with the pri mary last year waa still fresh no one had the temerity to put In a good word for the wide-open feature. It was ex pected that the legislature would close the door almost the first thing it did, and It In hard to understand why it should still be hesitating.

When Captain Palmer was appointed postmaster Mr. Rose water favored Mel Uhl, and at the time of Thomas' appointment Mr. Itosewater urged the senators to name Robert Cowell. Desirable Settlers. Three hundred and fifty Dutch farmers and their families have Just rrived In New York as the forerun ners of a contingent numbering 8,000, who will take up homes in the mid- western states. These people are bld to have been obliged to leave their native land under the impositions of extortionate landlords. Most of tberu were possessed of about $1,000 and many children per family, the money representing savings from hard-earned ncomes. No one in the United States can re joice over Ill-fortune befalling these sturdy folk in their native land, but everyone can rejoice at their coming. If they must leave Holland, by all mean let them coma among us, 'for we need newcomers of their kind and have a welcome and golden oppor tunity for all who cast their fortunes with oura. The Dutch is a sturdy, steady, Indomitable race. They have Infused good blood into the veins- of American citizenship. On such as they from the old world, this new nation has largely depended In working out ita own physical development. People who are able to . save that money though the . amount is not great under circumstances bo ad verse as ultimately to compel them to abandon their native land, must make thrifty citizens here. Thy are just the sort of people to build up the agri cultural sections of Iowa, Nebraska and other middle western states and our people could well afford to en courage their presence. With the op portunities they will find here they will soon have become Independent in their own right and In the meantime their examples of virtue, frugality and economy will have done us much good. If these Hollanders are discontented with life at home sufficiently to make the effort to come to thla country, probably others might also respond to Invitation and if so It would not be a bad idea for individual states to employ what legitimate means they may at missionary work among these folk. Uncle Joe Spurns the Stage. Some harsh things have been said of Uncle Joe Cannon. He has been called the most tyrannical speaker that ever mauled the house with a gavel. He has been assailed as a czar representing "the interests." He has even been accused of being a common, every-day millionaire. But he pro poses that no man may with Impunity charge him with aspiring to the stage. He refuses, at the age of 75, to become a monologue artist; he declines a golden opportunity to shine as a gate money performer and no money can tempt him from his high resolve. He burled back at a keen-visloned pro moter not long ago an offer that might have turned green with envy the eyes of other great statesmen. Now, at the zenith of his career or, to be strictly correct, a little on the leeward side of his zenith he refuses to con sider an offer of $500 a night for 100 nights to peddle preachments for a lyceum bureau, he to choose his own subjects and name his dates. . , It is a fine thing to. poaeesa courage enough to say, "No" under "such cir cumstances. Possibly It may set a wholesome example to aome of his ambitious colleagues; ' possibly 1t may even influence' his distinguished suc cessor, who, himself, is something of a popular idol on the lecture platform. But It ought to comfort Champ Clark, for it assures him of the advantage of Mr. Cannon's advice and counsel in how to wield a gavel. No one can doubt that with congress In extra ses sion this Is going to be a hard season for the Chautauqua windmill associa tions. Lame ducks have a poor com mercial value. The crowd demands an "is." It wants no "has-beens." Undo Joe, while no longer speaker, is still a member of the house and is, therefore, able to sustain his commer cial rating. Just because one architect does not love another does not condemn the parkway that is to embellish the space between the city hall and the court house when the latter building is com pleted. The realization of that little park will be the most substantial step toward the "city beautiful," which Omaha will have taken In many a year. Omaha may learn another lesson about how to get a convention. It sought the next meeting of the balloon races and entrusted Its claim to a gentleman from St. Louis who was going to attend the Aero club's meet ing in New York. In the meantime St. Louis develops a desire of Its own for the meet and has . Its man, of course', work for St. Louis.

Anna Howard Shaw was folng the talking. Neither the multitude nor th vo tal melody fensed the determined man. Slowly walking down-the center aisle his kcarehlng eyes met the astonished Lif of the audience without flinching. Down to the orchestra stalls he moved then turned and again stared straight at the crowd without giving a algn of recognition. "What are you here for?" asked Pr. fchaw. "I am looklnK for my wife." he ld simply. "Is she here? I know she's al ways trying to Ket the vote and keeping me awake nights telling me why women ought to have It. I tell her that I Can't give her the vote, but aho talks on, like Tennyson's brook, forever. Hut I don't mind now. I've got so used to her that she doesn't bother me any more than tne alarm clock." "What Is your name?" Inquired It. Shaw. "Wayman." "Is Mrs. Wayman In the house?" aked Pr. Phaw. A woman got up In the balcony and went down stairs. Her husband met her In the foyer. Half of the persons present ad. Jonrned to the foyer to witness the de parture. "What'a the matter?" asked the wife. "The baby haa the stomachache." meekly replied the man. "Didn't I tell you where the colic medi cine waa? You must understand that 1 nm not to be disturbed again." Then, those present at the meeting sav, she took him home. 8enator Owen will be the star speaker at the Bryan birthday dinner, where he will extol the constitution of Arizona. Our amiable democratic contemporary is reminded that the constitution of, Arizona contains the 5 per cent referendum petition feature which In Nebraska It brands as "the criminal Joker." Of course, the legislature Is passing that referendum measure not out of conviction that.; our present law makers are distrusted, but merely to enable the people to hold a check upon future law-making bodies. Inasmuch as It has been the motto f the Water board to ''Do It now" for eight years, why wait till May 10 when thirty days' notice is all that is re Quired for a special election?

The super-arid dryness, then, cannot be giving auch universal satisfaction as soma, of our worthy reformers at the state caltal would have the public b Troopi to the Front. The president's action In ordering 20,000 soldiers to the Mexican border and war vessels to convenient points in adjacent waters, gives a touch of realism to the conditions of near-war in tha southern republic. It will un doubtedly be good exercise for the troops, yet It need not necessarily sig nify certain action on the part of our army and navy. The government would be Justified in concealing its motive for this move ment. Its statement that It is prepar ing for military maneuvers for prac tice may tell the whole story. It does not comport with the best diplomacy to be explicit about everything. Be sides, our military will need practice If It is called on for service. No false alarms need be raised. There is noth ing in the situation that should create them. Mexico is and has been since the last Diaz election in a state of polit ical ferment. Developments have pro ceeded far enough to Justify the belief that serious trouble is at least poasl ble. The lnaurrectos are still Id the field, unconquered. and Mexico Is ap parently making no headway toward either conquest or conciliation. - Jn the meantime property rights and in terests, of other nations, ours among them, are In Jeopardy.

Close the Door. It is to be hoped tne legislature of Nebraska will not adjourn without at least restoring the closed feature of our primary law and abolishing the wide-open abomination inflicted on us by the last legislature. Governor Shallenberger has publicly confessed that he was buncoed Into approving the wide-open primary law against his own judgment and has recommended its repeal. The wide-open primary is standing Invitation to men of oppo site party, or of no party affiliations, to select the candidates and outline the policy for each party, and wo know of no Important political person age who believes In party government who favors the destruction of the In tegrity of party membership in this fashion. Our law-makers will do well to look back over the course of election re form and get thoroughly in their minds the difference between an elec tion and a primary. The first great forward step was the introduction of the Australian ballot Insuring secrecy at the polls, where every voter should be protected in his privilege to vote for or against his party nominees. The second great step consisted in legaliz ing the primaries for all parties In or der to prevent unscrupulous voters from participating in more than one party primary, and although con ducted at the same time, In the same place'and by the same election officers, both In theory and practice, the pri mary of each political party remains a separate and distinct primary Just as separate and distinct as If they were conducted at different times, In different places and by different elec tion officers.

"They're mine," the man al- nioat shrieked, "thank goodnth." The trans fer was made with a click, a reward was left for the "honest finder and the man departed, saying he was "so sorry to have given so much trouble." "That would have been 'tho thorry,' " said the clerk, "If the store teeth had not been foundi" One of the most pathetic cases on the records of the children's court, as related by the Tribune, was called before Justice Wyatt when Mrs. Jennie Collins, an old negro "mammy," pleaded for the custody of Margaret Clemens, an R-year-old white child, whom she had raised from Infancy. Investigation by the Children's society agents showed that Mrs. Collins had a comfortably furnished home at 228 West Thirtieth street, and that she worked hard aa a seamstress to support herself and lit tle Margaret. It waa found that the child was well clothed and regularly aent to the public achool In West Twenty-eighth street. Between aobs Mrs. Collins appealed to Justice Wyatt to leave the little girl with her, and the child, who is remarkably pretty, clung to the woman's dress when the officers tried to take her from the court room. "Judge, your honor, don't take her from me. I have had her since aha was 6 months old and It will break my heart If I can't see her no more. I know I can't bear to part from her," Mrs. Collins pleaded. "I knew her mother, a poor white girl who got Into trouble when this little dear was ( months old, and she kissed her one day and left. She said that she was going to drown herself, and I oouldn't do any thing with her. I haven't seen her since and I expect she carried out her threat. I work hard for a living, and the only thing against me Is that my skin Is black. You won't take her from me and put her In an Institution, where I can never see her?" Justice Wyatt said that he would do everything possible to sea that the child was placed where her benefactor might see her. lloells Jouinnl idem): At present Nor rls Hronn Is plnvlng to fool the good people of NehrHSka. but It won't work. f.r they all know that It's the desire to have another six years' feed t the pic counter that Is making Norrls behave so ell.
