Its Larger Significance.
While, Omaha lias been officially
designated as tho headquarters of
tho new railway mall service di
vision comprising the states of Ne
braska, Wyoming and Colorado, for
which congress m,li!o provision ef
fective July 1 last, the reorganiza
tion In proprepg In the department
has retarded tho actual work ot
Inaugurating the new division,
which, however, Booms now to be ap
proximate. It In doubtful if many people here
reullzo what tho establishment of
this new mail service division with
headquarters hero means, or ap
preciate tho added prestige It will
givo by accentuating Omaha as a
traffic, center. It is not so much the
local office force that will be main
tained, nor the reporting hre of
Feverul hundred postal clerks, but
rather the Importance of the di
visional arrangement of the 1'ostof-
fico department, which is constantly
growing and spreading out. The
railway mall service headquarters
means recognition of Omaha as the
natural and most economical operat
ing point for postal business in the
territory included within the three
Tho action of the great business
nrmy of the government which con
ducts the postoftlco ought in this
respect to have a tremendous influ
ence upon the groat private business
organizations that cover tho entire
country that must work in territorial
subdivisions through branch houses
or agencies. If Omaha is the pre
eminent vantage point for thq post
office in the tributary territory, the
same considerations must, and
should, govern a great corporation
for example, one for the manufacture
and distribution of automobiles, or
for the handling of agricultural im
plements, or for selling the thousand-and-one
industrial products that
look to the whole country for their
market. Omaha ought to be the di
visional headquarters city for all the
big business institutions that supply
trade In this and surrounding states.
That Is the larger significance of
Omaha's new railway mall service
On the Mexican Border.
Did Tresldent Madero overthrow
and uproot the Diaz reglmo com
pletely enough to prevent it from
flopping right side up again when the
lever of a counter revolution is pried
under it? If he did he is safe, but If
not the Vnlted States. may yet be
called on to effect peace and order in
the southern republic. '
Some there are mho believe that
another outbreak in Mexico will force
action on the part of our govern
ment. The Iradero revolution cost
us a good deal in money, , ,to ' say
nothing of the trouble and anxiety.
It is not certain we would bear as
patiently with another border ' war
within a few months.
Madero avows his intention of
using tho iron hand against
the Reyes-Gomes-Zapata triumvirate,
should it attempt its alleged purpose
of deponing him aud taking over the
reins of state. That is no more than
'lils illustrious predecessor did when
he galuod control and when he re
sisted its surrender. Suppose Madero
is attacked from these three corners
of opposition in Mexico, from the
adherents of Reyes, Gomes end Za
pata, which, in the end, will embrace
practically all the antl-Maderlstas.
will he be able to repel them? Is the
following' he built up In his recent
conquest firm and faithful enough
for that? Did this young leader, ris
ing out of the ranks of the antl-Dlax
party and overthrowing this old
power, win over to himself all the
old elements of his vanquished foe;
so as to accumulate strength suffi
cient to stand out against the com
bined pssnult of new foes?
The United Rates government
manifestly is taking no chances on
the cohesive power of the Madero
party. It has backed up the aggrestlve
action of tho Texas governor in sta
tioning a vanguard along the border
aa a w urnlng to Mexican forces. It
gives every reason to believe that it
will not tolerate a repetition of the
disturbances that went on along the
boundary line beforo.
Federal Aid for Good Boads.
It Is doubtful whether the govern
ment will appropriate very llbeial
sums of money for good roads as
long as it has the Panama canal, its
waterways and other heavy sources
of expense to provide for, so that it
remains to bo seen just, how much
of a triumph tho federal appropria
tion good roads men achieved In
getting the Richmond convention .to
adopt their resolution. This plan is
to have the federal government con
tribute equally with the separate
state governments for "building good
roads. It also contemplates the use
of convict lubor In the road work.
The demand for federal aid. net
new at all, received its chief Impetus
from the south, where good roads are
more needed than anywhere else just
now. The south Is to be commended
for its enterprise, but at the same
time it must not become Impatleut If
its plan Is somewhat delayed. It
might find some warraut for delay in
the fact that the south's action In
this matter is hardly consistent vith
Its general attitude toward federal as
against state enterprise. The south
from tradition objects to anything
like federal subvention or Interven
tion. It Is especially Jealous of Its
states' right power, but willing, ap
parently, to iet the federal govern
ment take the lead when It comes
to the distribution of benefit.
So good road, essential and de
sirable as they are In the north and
south, probably will have to get In
line so far as congressional help goes
and take their turn with the Panama
ranal, rivers and hsrbors, battle
rhlps and similar enterprls.-s de
manding money for their promotion.
When the government Is ready to
go Into the business of building good
roads It Is likely to have Several
plans presented to choose between.
Commmion Plan and Short Ballot.
One hundred and sixty-four cities
scattered through thirty-four states
have now adopted the commission
form pt government. Theqp states
range from Maine to California, from
the Dominion line on the north to tLe
Gulf on tho south. The Idea Is local
to no district fr sectlen, but Is rap
Omaha's addition to this list of
cities has occasioned much comment
far and wide. The Equity and other
similar publications ball It as one of
the most noteworthy turns of the
movement. This must be because of
Omaha's well known conservatism;
that Is, its practical way of looking at
all public questions. A few other
titles, even larger in population than
Omaha, have gone over to the com
mission plan without arousing much
comment, but Omaha's conversion is
made the subject for wide congrntu
lation. Omaha must prove further
in its selection of its seven
commissioners next .spring t. hat It
made: no mistake in choosing this
new method of city government Vn
less !t does that, the acceptance ot
the plan amounts to nothing.
Hand in hand with the commission
form of government goes the short
ballot. That, in principle la the es
sence of the whole thing. The short
ballot simply means the curtailment
ot the list of elective officers, the
elimination of all not Important
enough to arouse a real interest. This
tends to give the election ot each
man on the ticket a more discrim
inating attention of the voters.
The commission plan of municipal
government and the short ballot,
then, are preferred mainly on the
theory that they tend to fix respon
sibility and encourage Intelligent par
ticipation by all the voters In a city's
government. On their success In ac
complishing these objects they must

Reviving sv nine Law.
Suburban lot developeis in New York
are worried over a new application of an
old law which seems to make It a crime
to take a prospective customer out to
see a piece of property on Sunday. The
practice ha grown with the radiu of the
city, for Sunday offers the needed lelaure
for a long Junket to Loneaomehurst or
Wayoff heights. It is expected that the
Issue will be taken to the court of ap
peal. A curious feature of the case is
that the law directs that articles offered
for sale on Sunday In contravention of
the law shall be confiscated and sold and
the proceed turned over to tho overseers
of the poor. But in th recent case which
came before the court this provision was
discreetly not enforced. The fight against
taking customers to see lots on Sunday

AS UNSOLVED PROBLEM.
Nathan M. Lflvy In New York Sun.
I know maid for whom I have a serious
Bhe'a handy and tan broil a steak In
manner that's perfection.
She hna taste that's excellent In dress
and decors tlon,
And she can make a dollar go beyond
And though she In not stupid, she In fact
Is o,ulte discerning,
he Isn't very dejply read or famous for
There I another maid for whom I show
She's clever and betray at once her Won
Mistress she Is of languages and ologtes
Her knowledge I to mine as Is a dollar
to a penny.
But see her In the kitchen, so unhappy
she is looking.
The average maid would ridicule her rasli
attempt at cooking.
A third Is Just between the two; to her
I've had some leaning.
On certain days you'll find that she W
very busy cleaning:
And though attractive dishes she' not
given to Inventing,
Yet with a rook book now and then she
But, too. she likes to read and she for
knowledRe breathes a yearning.
Although she ne'er will set the Thames
on fire with her learning.
I've wondered much with Just which on
I'd go through life contented,
And schemes to make her happy I have
I've wondered over It so much my brain
begin to scatter:
I cannot tell you Just how much I've
wondered o'er the matter.
I'm wondering still; I did not think the
fates would so forsake me.
I've n."ked them all, not one of them e'er
felt inclined to take me!
