Our democratic law-makers, who Lave been so noncommittal In re . bpottbe to questions proimunded to tLera during tbe rectus of congress j I.ojmi to be able to give more d?flnlt( answer after tbe party caucus IcM, and tbey get tbelr order. I is Attacking- the Commerce Court. A strong effort to abolish the new commerce court is promised at the coming session of congress, which may even beronie a feature of the session. Representative Hlnis, a democrat of Tennessee, sponsored a bill for that purpose at tbe last ses sion and Is quoted as declaring bis Intention to push It again tbls win ter with the full ro-operatlon of house democrats and some Insurgent republicans. It partisan opposition, however, la the best reason tbat can ba of fered for tha abolition of tbe com merce court, we doubt tbe expedi ency of the movement. Borne solid ground must be found on which to base objection to the court before the plan to wipe It out can have pop ular support. Buch ground Is cer tainly not to be found In a lack of work for the court. It Is covered up with work todsy and Is likely to be for a long time to come. In the minds of many besides Mr. Taft there waa a real demand for this court, and It baa not bad sufficient time to prove its usefulness. It would cer tainly be a serious error to condemn it and abolish It simply for the sake of petty politics. But the abolition of the commerce court la not quite aa Imminent as some try to make out. Suppose the democrats muster the necessary ma jority In tbe bouse to pass the 81ms bill. It would still have the senate gauntlet to run and, though there are a few Insurgent senators who might Join, that would not assure enactment of the measure, for there Is a good deal more conservatism among the democratic aenators than among tbe rank and file of bouse members. Tbe possibility of a pres idential veto would have to be con sidered, for tbe president would not hesitate to veto It' If satisfied that the court should be retained. The fact tbat the new court has rendered one or two so-called un popular decisions Is not enough to condemn It. The, Interstate Com merce commission might easily have fallen, into disfavor early In Ita ex istence, but to have abolished It be cause at first It did not give entire satisfaction would have been the most serious blunder. The commis sion haa never given entire satisfac tion, for that matter, and yet la conceded to be a prime necessity In our handling of great transportation and Industrial problems.. Tbe scope of Ita authority haa even been widened and the commerce court cre ated for the express purpose of mak ing Ita decrees more speedily ef fective. Tbe Luide of the Onion. That In the long run, truth will out is again Illustrated by a revela tion Just made by the Lincoln Jour nal with reference to that famous Bryan onion crop, the revelation ap parently coming with the aid, con sent and authority of Mr. Bryan himself. It Is In directing attention to the everywhere prevailing and al most irresistible temptation to ex aggerate that Mr. Bryan gives us a look at tbe Inside of the onion, as follows: 1 have soma Tcaas land, onlon-growlng land. Bom two or tares years ago 1 ranted a tract of twenty acres to a man for w an acre for tha season. When ths crop time came around a report was sent out that became current, giving ma $1,014 returns on my twenty acres, ' In a few day other new-paper reports had this return up to SlCsOuO. Now. tb facta are, the man to whom I ranted the ground wrote ni a letter about th tiro that th crop should mature, aaylng tliat hta onion had been practically a failure, and that hla total Income would be about tils to 1120, counting out my 1100 (or rant You see, he had vary littl left, and his letter waa a request that I glv him mora time to pay. 1 just lat it (0 over to th next year. Too close proximity to the onion Is said to be a great Incentive tor a man to weep, and It must make Mr. Bryan weep to think that he neg lected to sell bia onion crop on the basis of the Inflated price with which it was credited for publicity pur poses only. The Insinuating Dance. London has at last decided to cen sor Its theaters, particularly those permitting the oriental glratlons that go by the name of dances, and will submit all such to rigid official inspection. America might well emulate the British action. Many theaters In this country are too loose In what they allow on their stages. Just at present a certain company of so called eastern dancers is making its way across the continent that needs to come under this censoring rule. Of course, in this as In other argu ments of the kind, theaters will be apt to retort that people are not compelled to attend such produc tions. Tbat is subterfuge, though. when it comes to arguing tbe de- eeucy or moral effect of the produc tion. Most of these insinuating contor tions through which women draw themselves to the delectation of the baser senses of tbelr spectators, should be prohibited. That would end all argument right there. It waa the "dawn-of-love" danc that broke the camel's back In London, which has heretofore stood for any thing. American cities had better make a note of this and watch for the dawn. It la pitiful when tbe stage has to fall back upon ribaldry or sensuous exposure for Its appeals to public favor. Of course Some forms of what is called oriental dancing are Inter esting and reputable, but In them the dancers do not come out clad only la a wreath of roses and a pleasant smile. Investigating- the Express Combine. The Interstate Commerce commis sion is engaged in a sweeping Inves tigation of the express companies, their systems of rates and finances and their methods of doing business. Beginning the Investigations at New York, tbe commission's plan ia to hold them In various cities over the country so at to make a thorough Job of it. Tbe commission probably never undertook a more needed investiga tion, one more generally welcomed by tbe people. For years the ex press combine haa escaped official Inquiry or enjoyed a sort of im munity from attack. ' And all that time it has been the common belief that It could not successfully with stand an official probing because of its blgh-handed conduct of affairs, Its arrogance to the public, extor tionate rates and arbitrary sched ules. It will be Interesting now to see Just bow it will be able to withstand the limelight. Some of the divi dends, that have recently been de clared by certain companies are, in themselves, sufficient to call for in vestigation. Another Important mat ter calling for explanation is tbe re lation of express companlea to rail roads. This inquiry Is likely to develop some interesting Information aa to why parcels post baa made no better progress In this country. At last people bave come to believe that tbe chief obstruction to this system lies In the express combine. Parcels post needs look for no stronger argument to promote it than the conduct of the express business In this country. A college professor calls upon American newspapers to devote tbe money and Ingenuity put. upon tbe comic supplement to "a sincere en deavor to reproduce each week one or more of the world's great pictures, with that beauty of coloring and truth of portraiture that modern methods make possible." If all the newspaper readers were college grad uates they might prefer a Mona Lisa or a Sis tin Madonna to the "Katzen Jammer Kids." We really believe, however, that It Is up to the college professors to do tbelr Job first, after which the newspapers would bave no option as to tbe road they would have to travel. Surely seme power of contrition must bave come over the young Vir ginia wife murderer. He could bear to slay his wife and go through the ordeal of a long and bitter trial deny ing it, but be could not bear to die with the lie upon bis lips. Yet what is a lie compared with wife-murder The human soul shrinks when it comes to face Ita Maker. It haa no brash courage then to glosa over its deeds of wrong. Tha New York Herald names Jdhn Sharp Williams as a sure dark horse, since be was taken to a veter inary hospital when Injured. But that Is better than being lugged oft to a blacksmith shop, where the an vils might have got him. The socialists polled over 1,700 votes for their ticket In Douglas county at the last election, The so cialists are now the third party with us, having forged ahead of both populists and prohibitionists.

There are Just as good men yet to be proposed for commissioner under Omaha's new plan of city government as bave already been mentioned "To clean bras use strong ammonia," says tbe recipe book.
