It does not look aa If tho house
democrats were acting In good faith
in' reintroducing the wool tariff bill
the president vetoed last year. They
know1 beforehand that even if it
should pass the senate after running
Its automatic course- through the
bouse, which Is extremely doubtful,
it would again be vetoed.
"Chairman Underwood dropped
the bill In the basket aa he entered
the house today," In press dispatch,
is significant ot the nonchalance by
which the democratic majority goea
about this bit of political trickery.
Just toss It ta the hopper, for It Is
of little consequence, but It will do
to mark time over, and that Is ap
parently all Chairman Underwood
aad bla party followers are con
cerned about. Th crying need for
Panama canal and Alaska legisla
tion, not to mention other vital mat
ters, does not reach their ears.
President Taft, we believe, waa
sustained by the country for vetoing
thla wool bill last year on the
ground that it waa a haphaaard
measure gotten up purely for polit
ical reasona and ta conflict with the
tariff com mission Idea aa' Idea In
which the people believe.. Ho made
it plain that he would not approve
such a hodgepodge, aad he could no
more afford to sign It this time.
' Mr. Bryan's Attitude. '
Bpeaklng at Kearney, Mr. Bryan
la reported as aaylng that it Gov
ernor Harmon carries tho presiden
tial preference primary la Nebraska
aa against other democratic candi
dates he will refuse to attend the
Ualtimore convention,' though com
missioned as a delegate-at-large.
This Is, Indeed, a remarkable at
titude tor the maa who haa ta aeasoa
aad out ot season been Breeching,
"Let the' people rule," and empha
sising the eecredneae of majorities.
True, whenever ho haa discovered
hlmaelf la the minority, Mr. Bryaa
haa found ready excuses by charging
the opposition with buying his fol
lowers away from him, or with co
ercing aad Intimidating people to
vote against their eoavtoUona. Two
years ago, when wt still had the
open primary, ha had a pretext for
rojectlng the primary decree on the
ground that It did aot represent the
will of the democrats, but thla ta the
tint time, so far a ws recall, that
Mr. Bryaa haa la advance declared
that he would not abide by the un
trammeUd expression of tho ma
jority of the rank aad file of his
own party. We only wonder what
Mr. Bryan would say If any other
Nebraska democrat running for dele
gate to tho Baltimore convention
should announce that he would not
serve it elected unless Governor
Harmon won out at the primary;
It really la Interesting to repub
licans merely aa spectators to the
democratic fracas, except Insofar aa
it may set a precedent for all.
Go it, Xaintnck,
It Is gratifying to know that the
Kentucky legislature haa enacted a
stringent anti-tipplng law, gratify
ing because it such a law can be en
forced' anywhere, Kentucky la the
place. ConJoTe, If you can, a waiter,
tor Instance, poorly serving a Ken
tucky colonel who had failed to tip
him. - If you know the temperament
of the average Kentucky colonel and
his mental attitude toward tho race
to which most ot the waiters down
there belong, yoa will readily appre
ciate the force of thla hypothesis.
Tho trouble with such a law is
the absolute impossibility of enforc
ing lt.H says tho Washlngtoa Times.
We would amend that by striking
oat the words, "absolute Impossi
bility" aad Inseriiag la lien thereof
the word "difficulty," for bo such
impossibility exists 1b Kentucky. Ia
states north ot the southern bound
ary line ot Indiana and Ohio the
thing haa seemed impossible, and
for the reason, as the Tlmee points
oat, that "a sensible public opinion
that will not eoasent. to tho abomi
nable practice," haa been lacking.
Understand, though, that Keatacky
haa aot before addressed Itself to
the subject. There is aot the re
el ot eat doubt In our mind aa to the
secceea ot the law. aad Kentucky's
example ahouid be worth something
to the rest of the country.
Under this law placarda must be
posted la public places subject to
tipping, stating that It la a punisha
ble offense to give or receive tips,
and as a matter of fact the restrain
ing Influence of this alone is very
likely to dan st even the average
Saving- Mosey for Cities.
New York la said to have saved
$5,000,000 in its city government
last year as a result of the bureau
of municipal research, and Philadel
phia, from which the plan was im
ported, did equally as well. Now
Atlanta haa incorporated the plan,
employing some ot the New York
experts to install it
This la simply a system for put
ting the maaagement of a city on a
practical buslnesa basis, eliminating
all elements ot waste and. improv
ing every opportunity for developing
efficiency in every branch and de
partment ot the machinery of gov
ernment Admittedly, any plan that
will net a saving of $5,000,000 a
year to- New- York is worth looking
Into. But the problem ot running a
clvio corporation ahouid be no more
complicated or difficult than that of
running a private business concern,
and private industries are not op
erated upon the loose, unbusiness
like basis of many American cities,
hence private Industries are run at
a profit, while many citlea are nob
It ia quite agreed tho weakest
thread in tho fabric ot our Amer
ican government la In Its municipal
management, for which many patent
reasons exist One is the electing
of men to office for considerations
other than their fltneea or qualifica
tion, and thla Is due often to the
vicious Intervention of franchise
corporations, with so much at stake
id city administrations. Thus every
ward heeler comes to regard tho pie
counter as his common heritage and
aa Indifferent eople support him
In the pernicious assumption. That
haa been the ease; bow that wo are
turning Into the commission form
ot government Idea, we ahall hope
that It will not be any longer. With
the responsibilities centered in a few
heads, cities ought to be able to re
duce their managements to an effi
cient basis, but, ot course, they will
aot unless they exercise the proper
discretloa In selecting whom they
will have to serve them. No form
ot government, municipal or other
wise, la much. If any, better than Its
American vanity; at least, it looks
like a beginning toward uprooting a
very bat! practice which haa grown
Into an outrage because Americans
are too vain to stand op for their
rights. The employer has cunningly
appropriated the chief advantage of
the tipping system to himself, allow
ing tlpa to pay a good part ot the
wages to his employee whjch should

The speech of Wlnatoa' Churchill, first
lord of the admiralty, in Introducing the
naval budget In tha British House of Com
mons, last Monday, effectually disposes ef
the hose of limiting naval armaments for
the present. Lord Haldane's recent visit
to Germany and bis conversation with
the Imperial authorities was regarded a
step ta that direction, and Its results as
cautiously Interpreted by Prime Minister
Asqulth lent wings te hope of an under
standing which would check the mania
for naval supremacy. ' Mr. Churchill's
announcement of Britain's naval plana
makes H clear that Lord Haldane's mis
sion to Germany, so tar as it related to
sea power, was not a success. Germany's
refusal to call a bait 'doubtless prompted
the emphatic declaratioa of the British
minister that Britannia wiU continue
mistress ot the seas at any cost Ths
"two power" naval policy ot former years
is to be modiried to the basis of "e per
ceat or better" above the next best naval
power. As Germany ranks second In sea
power end Is mors aggressive In. war
ship building than powers of leaser naval
rank, the defl et Minister Churchill is
plainly Intended te Impress upon the
kaiser and ths Imperial Naval league
that Great Britain la not to be overtaken
ta. naval supremacy. "She ha the ahlpa.
