The Teace Treaties.
rrc-slrlcnt Tnft's proposed Interna
tional arbitration treaties, which are
to come before the sonste at the ap'
proatbing short session of congress
arc evidently gathering popular
strength. The president received as
surances from a number of senators
on his recent tour that they would
vote for the treaties with (Jreat
Britain and with Franco and In addl
tlon to this there must be tremen
dous encouragement In the following
massed under the namo of the CM
zeiis'- National committee, organized
to promote tho measure. This com
mittee, composed of representative
men fiom ' nil 'ports' of the country
nnd all purse Its of life, being pre
eminently non-partisan and non-po-
lltlcal In character, should exort a
6trong Influence for ratification.
Tho 1'nlted States lias made so
much of Its leadership In this move
ment for world peace that It ennnot
well recede from Its advanced posi
tion without discrediting Its sin
cerity nnd, to most people, It will
seem like recession If tho acnute
should fail to ratify these treaties.
It Is apparent now that tho chief ob
jection raised by tha senate lias been
met In . tho forum of public discus
sion and that tho popular view Is
ngalnst the sonate's criticism, that
the Joint high commission featuro Im
pairs the trcaty-maknfr powers of the
sennt, In other words, some fena-
tors maintain thnt to let an arbitra
tion board decide whnt U Justiciable
under these treaties Is to tresspass
upon tho constitutional rights of tho
The president has more than once
shown that It Is no more trespassing
upon the senate's prerogatives than
upon the executive's. The latter has
quite as extensive powers in refer
ence to treaty making as the senate.
But this point is raised as if It were
something new. Governor Simeon E.
Buldwln of Connecticut1, also for
merly chief Justice of the supreme
court of that state and former presi
dent of the American Bar association,
declares that the door to the negotia
tion of treaties of this clnss was
opened wide by congress Itself In
1890 by a concurrent resolution
which requested the president:
To Invite from time to tlm a occa
sions may arise, negotiations wlf,t any
government with -which tha United Btates
has, or may have diplomatic relations to
the end that any differences or dispute
arising between th two government
which cannot be adjuated by diplomatic
gancy may be referred to arbitration
an,4 be peaceably adjunted by such moans.
Governor Baldwin adds in' com
ment: "It seems ungracious In the
senate after uniting in this overture
to the world to insist .on so. rigid a
doctrine as to the delegat!6n of the
treaty-making power." The fact that
this ssfne thing has. been, done tn the
history of this country a dosen times,
ought to be sufficiently reassuring.
In the Light of the Returns.
Commenting on the recent election
returns, the Springfield (Mass.) Re
publican says: "Both democrats and
republicans will find things to please
them and also 'to displease them,"
which, of course, Is always truo. "In
tho four Important governorship con
tests the results. In Khode Island
and Maryland ore satisfactory from
the republican point of view, but
equally satisfactory from the demo
cratic point of view are the results
In Massachusetts and Kentucky."
Hardly. A year ago Foss was
elected governor of Massachusetts as
a democrat by about 32,000 plurality.
This" year his plurality Is about 8,000.
Nobody need argue that the loss of
24,000, no matter what the cause or
causes, is satisfactory to the demo
crats. It is very unsatisfactory, for
it augurs badly for that party. In
Rhode Island, where the republican
governor. Pothier. was re-elected. It
was by a greatly increased plurality
over a year ngo. In Maryland the
republicans won' out for governor
after a most strenuous campaign
against u stroug tundldate, Arthur
Puo Gorman, Jr. supported by a well-
managod democratic machine and the
prestige of tho Gorman name, and
It will hardly do to say that the

School Board Duties.
OMA If A, Nov. 13. -To the IMitor cf The
Her: At the lnt city election, n In
many puet, I wne ut ti Iohx to know how
to vote on tho r-'chool board. This matter
has alway puzslcd mn, and I know that
It Is rctinlly pnggllng to muny other
Therefore, I fori that you will hpstow a
preat favor upon many If you will unnwer
the fallowing question:
"What are the dutUs of a member fjf
the Hchool boHrd, or rather, wh:it part
does the School boar l have In the educa
tion of our rhlldrcn, and In what way Is
a member of tho School botird paid for
Thanking you, as will a crot many of
ycur readers, I am. A VOTKTt.
The School board In Omahn, made
up of twelve elective members, lias
completo chargo of tho administra
tion of the public schools. It has
Just os much, if not more, power in
Omaha than have the school trustees
in a country school district, but It has
come to cxcrclso that power accord
ing to fixed rules and precedent
which amount to self-established
limitations. As a consoquence the
part of the School board In the school
room work of educating the children
Is performed through tho euperln-
ter.dent of schools and hla corps of
principals and tew hers whose recom
mendation or orders nie subject to
approval or reversal by the board.
The fact that this power to overrule
the superintendent Is not often exer
tlsed In any drastic way docs not
make It less real.
The main part of the School board
In the education of, our children
arises from the control of tho purse
strings. Not a dollar of school money
may be lawfully expended except by
the board. The board makes the
budget, fixes the school tax rate, for
mulates bond propositions, sells tne
bonds and disburses the proceeds.
Crder the law a member of the
School board receives no pay for his
services; membership Is supposed to
be entirely honorary and uncompen
sated. Everyone knows, however,
that the temptation Is strong to use
the position for personnl advantage,
and we have had many cases of sis
tors, cousins and aunts attached to
the payroll merely because of rela
tionship or dependence upon some
school board member. Some mem
bers of the School board! also have
been able, by Judicious trading, to
put themselves on the payroll on
their retirement, although theso In
stances have been exceptional.
For these places on the School
board, It goes without 'saying we
ought to command the most intelli
gent and highest grade of our citi
zenship and particularly men who
may be depended upon to perform
the duties wholly and solely In the
Interest of the children who look to
tho public schools for their educa
tion. Politic rrftike strange bedfellows. It

OMAHA, Nov., 13-To the Kdltor
of The Bee: In the Bee re

was rtarted" by a debate between Mr.
v-oveu ana ftir. vuimny. -yne program
npened with an address by Mrs. O. W.
Covell on tho question of Woman Suff
rage, which was discussed by several
members of the society for the affirma
tive, and by one man, W. M. Ward, on
the negative. . i '
, Time wuh called on Mr. Ward at the
end of 10 minutes, and not after he had
"Already used twice the time- allowed
each speaker," as reported, though other
were allowed more time, and often more
than twice that time in used.
Nearly all the speakers acknowledged
that their minds were filled with woman
suffrage, looked, sealed, : and ready for
shipment, and no other thought could
penetrate them. .
Most of them confirmed It In about
theso words, "There can be no argument
ugalnpt woman suffrage, and no intelli
gent man will attempt it". So there
seem to be no other way but to sur
render our pants.
ONE WHO WAS THERE.
Father Mnru'jr'i Status.
ULYSSES, Neb., Nov. ll.-To the
Editor of The Bee: In your ac
count of the accidental death of Father
Murphy you made a misstatement when
you said that when "Bishop Bonacum
died, Father Murphy was practically ex
communicated, although, acting as pastor
of a church at Ulysses," also, that, he
was reinstated by Bishop Tihen.
Father Murphy was never excommuni
cated nor reinstated. Right Rev. Bishop
Tihen read the declaration from the
altar of Father Murphy's church In
Ulysga before a large gathering of both
Catholic and non-Catholic that the
cardinal at Washington, who I the
pope's representative there, In answer to
him said that there Is not nor ever was
In Rome or Washington any church de
cree against this good priest. I heard
him say this myself. Besides thl I
heard Father Murphy swear In the court
at Seward that he Is not nor never, jwaa
excommunicate! and no man can truth
fully say that Rev. Father Murphy ever
lied; It was not In his noble heart to
lie, he loved the truth more than he did
his life, and It was for th love of sacred
truths that he made that long fight

IX A CAUTIOUS MOOll.
Colonel Bryan' Intimation that
"Prospects Are Deeeptive."
Mr. Bryan does not share popular dem
ocratic confidence In the party' pro
pect. He says "prospect are deceptive."
Ho must have been thinking of 1896, 1900
and 1!0S. He could not have been think
ing of 1904. for he was never for a mo
ment deceived about the Parker ram
pulgn. H knew that to be hopeless
from the tart. He had warned his party
against the folly of the nomination.
Hut when Mr. Bryan himself wa the
nominee things hummed. He made them
hum. He was not alone In hla confidence
then. There were republicans who ex
pected him to win. Especially In 1SW.
Some of them, as he did. thought that
the enormous crowds that greeted hlnj
whenever ho appeared represented vot
