A Magnificent Republican Victory.
Tba result locally in Douglas
county is a magnificent republican
victory, with every candidate on the
county ticket but one winning by
handsome majorities, and with
similar majorities given to the en
tire state republican ticket. The loss
of Hoye for sheriff is naturally to be
regretted by republicans, who would
have preferred to see a clean sweep,

Hoye waa evidently no one 'thing,
but a combination of factors that

Bailway Batei and Navigation.
Tha Transrnlsslsslppl Commercial
congress which meet in Kansas City
In December la to make the matter of
river, navigation an Important topic
of discussion. Kansas City la a good
place for such consideration, since
It haa taken the lead among mid-western
cities In promoting river traffic.
Doubtlesa tha local sentiment will
give stimulus, to tha movement and
may help to bring about action.
River navigation vitally affect
railroad rates and the cost of trans
portation and what caused a decline
in tha usa of rivers waa, not their
Inefficiency aa channels of trans
portation, but rather tha. Increased
efficiency of our - railroad. When
tha demands of business called for
mora rapid transit than tha rivers
afforded and tha railroad! became
able to meet the demands, commerce
left tha streams and went to tha rail
ways. But with all tha prodigious
development of our railroads, com
merce haa outgrown these facilities
and la crying for, not only tha low
est possible carriage cost rate It can
obtain, but mora extensive service.
President F. A. Delano of tho Wa
bash railroad. In his address a year
ago before tha National Rivera and
Harbors congress at Washington,
Insisted that restriction on advances
In rates la sura to operate as a
hindrance to their reduction, aa a rule
that worka both ways. If that Is
true and also that tha tendency of
railroad rates Is again upward In
stead of downward, no doubt the sit
uation affords an excellent opportu
nity for river navigation Improvement
and Invites action by this convention
at Kansas City. It lower railroad
rates supplied the need which the
rivers before filled, then higher
railroad rates with shipping Increas
ing faster than railroad facilities,
ought to favor resumption of river
What Beat Annexation.
The rejection by South Omaha of
the proposition for merger with
Omaha by a fairly decisive vote is
not unexpected to those who have
observed the situation. Annexation
has been again defeated, although
sentiment In South Omaha has ma
terially changed over tha uncom
promising attitude of a few year
ago, and at the start gave promise
of carrying the ball to the goal.
What beat annexation Is well
enough known In South Omaha and
should be known elsewhere, namely,
the attack of tha Omaha Water
board on tha validity of tha franchise
granted to the Stock Yards company
to supply water for Its own needs
and the needs of the packing
houses. The people of the stock
yards district, originally In favor of
merger, veered completely around
aa a consequence of the Water
board's application to have this
franchise judicially annulled.
Other causes that contribute
arise from the Inadequacy of tha law
providing for tha union of tha two
cities. Tho law was hastily drawn
and passed four years ago, and un
intentionally failed to guarantee
South Omaha any measure of self
government, or participation In gov
ernment, during tha period between
the time when annexation should be
come effective and a new regime of
city government elected and Installed
by tha enlarged metropolis. Neither
is there any provision of law to safe
guard from lose of four months of
their license year, the liquor dealers
of South Omaha, who pay 11,100 to
run from May to May, af d after an
nexation would have to take out new
licenses running from January to
Annexation of tha two cities is
bound to come, but la all fairness to
South Omaha these defects In the
law should be remedied, or sn alto
gether new law panted, before It is
again attempted. '
The Political Pendulum.
One year ago democrats were re
joicing over the election of governors
In these six slates New York, Con
necticut, Massachusetts, Maine, New
Jersey and Ohio. They began at
once to raise each governor-elect to
the estate of a potential presidential
candidate and were emphatic In as
serting that this "landslide" was but
a forerunner of overwhelming demo
cratic victory in 1912.
But politics Is a pendulum that
quickly swings from one side to the
other. Perhaps the democrats forgot
that In their hour of triumph, or
surely they did not expect the pen
dulum to awing back so far quite this
soon. Not one of these six states re
peated on Tuesday the pro-democratic
trend of a year ago.
New York, which In 1910 elected
a strongly democratic legislature as
well as governor, this year gives the
legislature back to the republicans
with a republican majority of fitly,
a violent repudiation of democracy
under Tammany rule.
New Jersey, which a year ao
elected Dr. Woodrow Wllsou gover
nor by about 60,000 plurality, giving
htm a democratic legislature, this
year returns both branches of the
legislature to the republicans.
Massachusetts, considered by the
democrats as a pivotal state, re
elected Governor Foes by about
8,000 majority as compared with
32,000 one year ago.
Tba results of the elections as a
whole over the country are not only
encouraging, but flattering to the
republicans, and therefore to the
Taft administration. The president,
himself, can find much to reassure
him of tba increasing confidence
of tha people in spite of the Inces
sant and merciless warfare waged
against him. No political seer who
lsr honest with himself can read out
of the returns any discouragement
for progressive republican Inm In
1912 aa represented In President
Taft, nor can any democrat read
Into them new hope for hla cause.
To the Teachers.
Omaha has a cordial welcome for
the visitors In attendance upon the
annual convention of the Nebraska
Teachers' association. The gather
ing Includes several hundred men
and women educators of our own
state and dlstlnguUhed members of
tha profession from abroad. To
them all The Bee wishes a welcome
and an enjoyable and profitable time.
Omaha la happy to act as tba host
of such. a convention. There is no
mora Important work than that of
teaching and training tha young to
live, and that, after all, is educa
tion's original function. It is to tha
credit of pedagogy that it labors to
find the most effectual methods of
performing that great mission, for it
is Important that It, no lesa than
tha trades and commerce, keep
abreast the times and meet each suc
cessive problem of modern thought
and action aa it arises. Such con
ventions aa this one contribute to
that end, by the interchange of ideas
and tha comparison and discussion
of methods and systems.
One may not view such a body
of earnest men and woman without
concluding that ao long as they and
larger numbers of their like all over
tho country are giving auch earnest
devotion to tha cause of education,
with all tha , adverse criticism we
bear of our system of public school
ing, In the end it will contribute
Its share to the sum total of human
good, to tha moral and intellectual
uplift of the nation. I
Prof. P. G. Holden, the apostle of
intensive farming In Iowa, is think
ing of running for governor. His
slogan will probably be the same as
he used in promoting scientific agri
culture make two votes (blades of
grass) grow where but one grew be
fore. Incidentally, our political geogra
phy waa murdered during the cam
paign by locating the town of Val
ley in Sarpy county, and putting
Sarpy county back into thla Judicial
district after it bad been cut off by
the legislature.
Local democrats hugging the only
office they saved may know how the
republicans rejoiced last year over
electing "Johnny" Lynch county
Commissioner as the only oasis In
the desert.
If It were true that every vote for
the republican ticket in Nebraska
was au endorsement of President
Taft and hla administration, he
would have no reasoc to feel badly
about it.

A few days ago a visitor In the Treas
ury building who had paused to talk
with a friend was startled to see a man
coming down tha corridor, wearing a big
star on his breast and carrying a revolver
of huge dimensions. It waa not strapped
in a holster, but was carried In tha right
hand, a If tha bearer waa ready to go
Into action.' The visitor asked with some
show of alarm what It all meant, and was
told that one of Secretary McVea's recent
orders wss being carried out by a watch
man. The secretary reached the conclu
sion some time ago that the watchmen
should go about armed.
As the visitor watched ths aged watch
man's subsequent movements, the pto-
ture faded from the sinister to the ridlou-
ous. He went to the end of the corridor,
sat down at a desk, stuck his artillery
Into one of the pigeonholes and fell
