Teachers an: Politics. Much ado Is made- over a dcrlara tlon endorsed by the nohool teachers In stsslon here to make the office of state superintendent appointive rather than elective "In order to take It out of polltlca." We sympathize with the desire of our schoolmen to steer clear of polit ical shoals, but how much further an appointed state superintendent would be from politics than an elected atate auperlntendent is decidedly open to question. It would depend entirely upon whom the appointment de volved, for we aee appointive officers engaging just as actively In politics as those with whose political for tunes they are allied. Politics are not always distinguishable by the well known party labels. It has been charged, even, that there U pol itics In teachers' associations, al though the lines may not be drawn merely between republicans and dem ocrata. So far aa Nebraaka la concerned, the office of state superintendent Is a constitutional office, and can bo changed only by constitutional amendment, which Is a slow process. As we aee it, the independence of our schools and educational institutions, and of thoe In charge of them, turns not so much on the source of appoint ment or election as upon the tenure. Here In Omaha the whole teaching force of our public school has been practically taken out of politics by establishing a permanent tenure list reached through satisfactory aervlce during a probationary period, after which removals may be only for cause. We aee no reason why the same plan should not apply to prin clpalshlpa and superintendences by observing rules of promotion, and affording civil service protection. There should be no need of reap pointment or re-election every year or two, and under such conditions the competent, conscientious and efficient educator would not have to waste much time on politics. Lonr and Short Haul Puzzle Again. I be first serious clash between the Interstate Commerce commission and the new Court of Commerce comes In the lattcr's granting of a temporary injunction against the order of the commission In the Spokane and Iteno rato cases. Theso are the notable eases that Involve the "back haul," and nioro especially the long and uhort haul propositions. The. belief Is that before the case is finally de termined it will have to go to the supreme court. The principle of the long and short haul Is so vital that ruling by the court of last resort is defilrsble, so the railroads and the government may have au -established precedent to go by. The Importance of the long and short haul principle is evident in the fact that the power given to the com mission by this section of the Mann Elklns Interstate commerce act Is second only to the commission's power to restrain advances in rates. Congress has never been willing to say that under no circumstances might a railroad charge more for a short haul than for a long haul, but neither has It in the new law given a definite rule to guide the commission and the roads. The old law offered some guidance by declaring that such ratea might not be made "under oub stantloily similar circumstances and conditions," but those qualifying words are stricken out of the new law. That seems to have left the commission to determine under Just what circumstances the long and short haul principle might be disre garded, and now that the ruling of the Court of Commerce denies this ultimate authority to the commission nothing Is left but to seek final arbitrament of the supreme court. On Bunainj a Corner. Keenest iutest awaits th su preme court's response to the gov ernment's plea for a decision pro claiming as the law of the land that "running a corner" on a stock ex change la a violation of the Sherman anti-trust law. This follows the an nouncement that the Department of JUBtice would undertake to prev corners In wheat and other irnin. ent on the ground that they were ronspl ra cies in restraint of trade, though point arises In the are urn twit nf th tho specific cases against Jamea A Patten and others charged with conspiracy to corner cotton in 1910. Two vital questions are brought out In the hearing before the supreme court One Is. Would It h in vitia tion of law to conspire to force prices uuwu wen aa upT The second is, Would it be an Illegal conspiracy if planters or producers combined to control prices? Both questions were asked by Chief Justice White and left unauawered. They surely will re ceive attention before the hearing is disposed of. To the laymen It would scorn to be Just at bad to lower prices as to raise them when for the same wrongful purpose of cornering thk market. The bears or today may be the bulls of tomorrow. They are slmty rela tive rerm, which mean the same thing in the eud pooling the, play. Often It la necessary to lower prices before they can be raised As for planters or producers combining to control prices, It was admittedly don by a few southern cotton planters last year, and Mr. Bryan acme years ago advised the California raisin growers to form their own trust. But nelthur case offers conclusive Justi fication for the set, unles It be held thdt the end Justifies the means. Sceinj the Bright Side.

Lincoln Journal. Still, why not? Why should any one begrudge our democratic friends the consolation they may draw from riveting their eyes upon the one small ray of light that presses through their curtain of darkness? Vo know how it Is ourselves, for last year, when Douglas county gave the high man on the democratic ticket nearly 10,000 majority, we re publicans managed to find balm. In one lone county commlssionershlp left to us out of the scrap henp. But, lo, and behold, thla lone place on the county board has now been aug mented by the addition of two oth ers, making three out of five, and transferring the control of county affairs back Into republican hands. But the wheel of politics always continues to revolve. There will be other yeara and other elections, and we reserve the right to crow, no mat ter what happens, and we probably crow leas loudly now when the bird of victory perches on our banners, not knowing how long she will bo content to sit there. A Suffragette Experiment. The wife of Mayor-elect Blanken- burg of Philadelphia Is eald to he a suffrugette, with the determination of sharing her husband's official nu thorlty. Critics of tho new mayor have gone so far as to predict that Mrs. Blankenburg will be mayor. That must be pure speculation, or, perhaps, peeve, duo to defeat. If ahe Is a suffragette, then It is safe to say she will share her I.usband's re sponsibility at least, Insofar as offer- lug suggestions goes, and tho major does not deny that ho will be open to receive suggestions. But what if the mayor's wife does take an active hand In ber husband's official dutlw? , Aud wlio knows how many wlvos arolhelplng to guide the hands of our mayors or governors, or Other public , officials? Them are cases where, Tio mader what tho woman's lnfluewpe .injjght be, her ad vice, or even dictation, could scarcely make things worBe. What higher service could a good wife render hor husband than helping him to avoid mistakes In his business, and if she can do that, Is alio then not helping tho city or the state? If Mrs. Blankenburg Is a suffra gette, as reported,' It Is a foregone conclusion that sho will bo concerned In her husband's new, position, for she is a woman of strong convictions or she would not be a suffragette. So here Is a chance to try out suf- fragettcism by a Gort of proxy, aud If It works well on poor old Philadel phia It may be worth trying elso whero when things look otherwise hopeless The refusal of South Omaha to be annexed puts several problems up to our Water board. Is South Omaha to be served with water at same ratea aa Omaha? If we have a water famine, must Omaha deny itself to keep South Omaha f-om Buffering? If South Omaha wants extensions and betterments will it have to wait till Omaha's needs are taken care of? Yep, nothing to do till tomorrow. Our amiable democratic contem porary seems to think that the de feated democratic candidates for dis trict Judge have quallflc 1 for any thing they want by going up againBt a hopeless race without wlnclug.

Sir Arthur Balfour's retirement from the leadership of the. opposition, even though discredited by party facllonlsts.

Imperial business has grown so grtat and per pWIng that Parliament Is unable now to give proper attention to the local eon. cerns of the kingdom. In the last two years Parliament has held sessions cover ing seven months of each year, and was unnble to dlspoae of all urgent Imperial question.
