What of the Grand Jury!
We believe The Bee voices general
publie sentiment when It say that
the work so far of the grasd Jutt.
of which much Was expected, has
been nsatiafactorr and disappoint
ing. The charge of Judge Sutton to
the Jury when ft was Impaneled cov
ered a wide range of subjects, laying
special emphasis upon thedereliction
of public officers and the betrayal of
public trusts, of which rumors nave
been rife and persistent.
The upheaval in the city ball Is
fairly good proof that there is some
thing more than mere gossip - In
these "rumors. But It reflects no
special credit ou the grand Jury that
the disclosure of city ball graft
should come spontaneously Instead
of by Indictment
The grand Jury can yet redeem
Itself and make record, but It can
not do so by merely sitting still and
waiting for people to bring evidence
before It. If grand Jury is good
for anything more than the ordinary
machinery of the prosecuting attor
ney's office it Is to dig op crooked
ness which can be brought to light
only by compelling unwilling wit-
ues to tell what they know under
penalty of committing perjury. Thla
is the way graft exposures ,were
msde in St. Louis, In Pittsburgh and
In San Francisco, and It is the only
way our grand Jury can rid Omaha
and South Omaha of their grafters.
workmen are not asking that their
employers Insure them a living re

but they rather prefer the concession
to be in the form of greater possi
bilities. If the miners In England
should 'win their minimum wage
fight, undoubtedly ether miners snd
other Industrial workers ; would
make similar, demands.
The English Teasels are said to
have little coal stored ahead, there
fore, in the event of a prolonged
struggle, they would come to grief,
especially If the strike should spread
to other countries. It Is not remote

'The Santas City Primary.
The first presidential preferential

Kansas City, a pivotal Roosevelt
stronghold. Is ths center and almost

short of bis party's normal strength.
polled more than 17,000 Vote and
lost this district to a democrat. ' "
- The Roosevelt organisation, led by
a powerful newspaper, exerted every
conceivable effort to get out the
Tote at this supposed crucial pri
mary, with the country Intently look
ing on. The Taft leaders, on the
other band, Questioning ths legality
of the election, advised supporters of
the president not to participate. :
More than four-fifths of the re
publican voters of ths district did
not psrtlclpate, although the Boole

appealing to passion, prejudice and

When the call for the democratic
national convention waa promul
gated much ado was made by our
democratic friends over the fact that
It expressly authorised the democratic
state organisations to provide for
the election of delegates by direct
primary snd prestdentlsl preference
vote) even In th absence of legisla
tion for that purpose. The demo
crats were going to "let the people
rule" everywhere by improvising
their own primaries If aeeeesary, but
up to date not a single democratic
organisation In any statej so far as
we ate able to ascertain, has made
use of this permissive clause la th

is Missouri, la Oklshoma and in
other pieces where delegates to the
democratic national convention have
been already chosen they have been
selected by the wld convention sys
tem, which the leaders are publicly
decrying, but privately pursuing. It
Is only snother case of democratic
false professions. : ' -. , y :
1 A Trick Hone.
As the democratic leader of the
house, Chslrman Underwood of the
ways and means committee Is rapidly
getting himself looked updn as a
trick horse. Cute leadership, th,e
cunning of Intrigue, Is not effective
leadership and will not make good
thunder for a presidential campaign.
The democrats, themselves, are J
more and more distrusting Chairman
Underwood. His scheme for "en
larged excise taxation," merely an
other form of Income tax. Is on of
his most transparent . tricks. It Is
framed a good deal like some of his
tariff bills, In such form as to make
sure' they wll hare no chance of
enactment Into laws at this session
of congress. , His whole force seems
bent on pretending at tariff reforms
without accomplishing anything. He
knows that even If bis sugar- tariff
bill got through the house. It woald
die In the senate and he also knows
that If bis Income tax bill were to
pass both houses, a most Improbable
thing, It would Jeopardise the con
stitutional amendment carrying an
Income tax pending before the count'
try. So good a democratic newa-
paper as ths New Orleans Picayune
points out this fsct in ths course of
an editorial In which it directs at
tention to the gallery antics of
Underwood. His leadership Is becom
ing as much of a liability to th
democratic party a Is that of Champ

Emasculated Arbitration Treaties. I
The senete's. ratification of the
proposed- International arbitration
treaties with the Joint high comrols
slon clause eliminated unquestlonsbly
destroys much of the value of the
treaties as they came from the presi
dent It raises a very grave doubt
as to their acceptability by England
and France. As the trestles now
stsnd, either nstlon as a party .to a
controversy might-easily -avoid the
obligations of the oompsct simply by
sf firming that the Issue raised, re
gardless of what It might be, wss
not Justiciable, or susceptible to arr
bltratlon and thus preclude the pos
sibility of this mesns or peaceful ar
bitrament. , .:
This third clause simply provided
that where two nations dissgreed as
to whether or not an issue was sus
ceptible to arbitration, each nation
mla-ht rbo- arbiters and let
them, constituting the Joint high
commlBSiou, uWiue this Vrrllmlnary
step. The senate's objection to the
treaty centered en this point, cer-
talfl sticklers who evidently care
more for the formalities of sen
atorial dimity than they do for
world peace, fearing that such a pro
vision Infringed upon the ancient
treaty-making powers of ths senate.
P resident Taft aad other big constitu
tional lawyers, however, dq not en
tertain this fear.
Ben a tor Bacon of Georgia, one of
the chief opponents of the trestles,
let the cat oat of the bag when, In
final debate, he said. In forcing the
emasculation of the documents, thst
"nothing hsd been lost to the csuse
of . world peace," clearly Indicating
his belief thst, as modified, the
treaties would never become oper
ative, for the reason that they would
not be accepted or ratified by Eng
land or France. The advocates ef
world peace, therefore, ahould un
derstand where the blame lies If
their hopes In the president's efforts
are ultimately lost.
