Good Men for Commissioner.
1. Alfred C. Kennedy.
Now that the tilings are closed,
and we know who, among those
previously mentioned, are and who
are not la the running for council
man under Omaha'a new commission
plsn of city government, it devolves
upon the Individual voters to select
good men out ot those available. In
each case, the question of good men
is comparative, and the choice no
necessary reflection on those who
are regarded as not quite so good.
Of course, there Is no politics or par
tisanship in this city election, yet we
are not prepared to admit there are
not as many good republicans as
there are democrats or socialists.
The Bee will from dsy to day point
out a few In the list which it regards
as good men, and first among them
Is Alfred C. Kennedy. Although
born in New York ststc, Mr. Kennedy
bss resided over forty yeara right
hero in Omaha, being educated in our
public schools, and engaged In the
real estate business for more tban
twenty-five years. He has served
the public whenever celled upon In
various honorary positions on the
school board, on the Library board,
in numerous charitable and. philan
thropic organizations. He is clean,
capable, conscientious, trustworthy,
level headed, broad-vlsloned, a high
data man In every respect. Ho is
not a fanatic, an extremist or one-
Idea man. How he could be ignored
In any set of endorsements supposed
to bo msde on a merit basla is In
comprehensible. H ought 'to be a
privilege for onr people to bo per
mitted to vote for such a man to
Inaugurate the new regime In city
Four New Senators.
The new statea ot Aritona and New
Mexico were not so wedded to the
idea of newness In publie affairs,
with all their pronounced reform
predilections, particularly Arizona, aa
to select their first United States sen
ators from among the untutored in
politics. The four men hsve all held
office before and are experienced In
potltleal matters. Ono senator from
each state has been a delegate to con
gress under territorial regime, an
other has been on the federal bench
n bla territory and the fourth, only
it years of age, has served as stste
Whether this Is to the advantage
of Arlxona and New Mexico, of
course depends upon how wisely the
selections have been made. Political
experience sbould be an asset instead
of a liability, especially to states Just
entering the union. It wss a bit un
fortunate that shady methods tn the
election in New Mexico arose, but the
least that can be aald la that the
senator-elect wss not a party to the
bribery, to which several men con
fessed. The Conrt'i Wrestle with Bates.
- Tbs legal questions Involved In the
railroad rate litigation encumbering
the federal supreme court arc mo
mentous and go to emphasise the
paramount Importance ot transporta
tion among the Industries ot this
country. Practically the whole fabric
of railroad rate reforms, to which
state and national leglalaturea hare
devoted so much time for years, la
at stake In these pending cases. The
Issue turns on the relation ot state
laws to Interstate commerce and
ahould the oourt decide that the atate
lawa now In force are restrictions on
Interstate commerce, state rate
orders In practically every state, we
are told, will be totally .extinguished.
But aside from this legsl and com
mercial responsibility, these cases in
volve herculean literary tasks tor the
members of the supreme court. The
record In the Missouri esses alone, It
la said, cover 10,000 pages and there
are cases from a doien other states,
every word ot which must bo di
gested by each of the justices. It haa
been brought out that more worda
are written In the Missouri easef
than have been uttered thus far in
both houses ot congress at thla ses
sion. To appreciate that fully one
should glance from day to day at the
Congressional Record. It would also
hslp us to understand why courts
often seem to make alow progress In
coming to their conclusions. There
are no limits of verbosity a lawyer
has to respect and when many law
yers are turned loose into such green
pastures aa railroad rate litigation,
sympathies sbould be turned toward
the Judges who have to alt upon the
Tippin. Their Hand.
In bla last long-winded fulmlna
tion against Senator Hitchcock and
Governor Harmon, "Mike" Harring
ton, apeaklng of the Bryanlto ele
ment ot Nebraska democracy, tips
their hand when he says, "The only
man that the Insurgent republicans
will support is Wilson. We must
hsve this support to win." In other
words, the democrats admit them
selves) foredoomed to defeat In, the
Impending presidential contest, as
suming President Tart's renomina-
tion which la now universally eon
ceded, unless they can persuade
enough Insurgent republicans to
come to their rescue.
If conditions were reversed It is
a safe proposition that neither Har
rington nor Bryan would undertake
to lead any body of progressive
democrats over into the republican
ranks. Both of tbem swallowed
Parker la 1004, or at least gavo no
active or open support to Roosevelt,
and they would swallow Harmon
again this year before they would
favor any republicans, progressive or
regular. Insurgent republicans will,
we believe, disappoint this demo
cratic expectstion. Insurgent repub
licans are not likely to embrace free
trade democracy, and repudiate the
basic principles of government they
have been steadfastly upholding in
return for the boquet which Mr.
Bryan has been throwing towards
La Follette, knowing they would do
him no good, but possibly harm him.
Let republicans remember and heed
the open confession by the apostle
of democracy, that without a repub
lican bolt the democrats csnnot win.
Madero Standing By His Gnns.

Reports that have been published that

This declaration by President
Madero is much too simple snd em
phatic to mean anything than just
what It ssys. It marks Msdero as a
man of decision and purpose, with
more firmness and resolution thsn
he is sometimes pictured as possess
ing. It should have a decisive effect
upon the recalcitrants, whose chief
object apparently is not so much the
overthrow of the government and the
establishing of a new regime, as the
continuous harassing of Madero and
the advancement of petty political
Madero undertook what many re
garded as nearly the Impossible, and,
while he has not yet succeeded In
completing his task, he has not lost
ground, but has forged steadily
ahead. And should he now retire,
that would not only mark him aa a
weaker man than be was taken for,
but It would, In all probability,
merely complicate the problem tor
Mexico. Where Is the antt-Maderttt
who can guarantee any Improvement
upon the present leader, whose eleva
tion to the presidency would offer
any substantial bops for relief which
Madero cannot give? The fact that
Madero haa enemies signifies nothing
except tliut many ambitious men In
Mexico would like to be where
Msdero Is and that no matter If be
were superseded by one of them, the
rest would continue their turmoil be
cause they had not landed the office.
If Madero can thwart the efforts to
scuttle the ship hs will have gained
such headway as to put the republic
on practically aafe aess.
According to a recent press dis
patch under a Washington date line,
"four out of five democrata In the
capital have come to the conclusion,
reluctantly, that Bryan Is playing for
the nomination." That view seems to
be spreading every day. The mere
fact of having" lost three battles
would, In Itself, not be sufficient to
deter Mr. Bryan from engaging In a
fourth. Mr. Bryan'a business is to

FLORENCE. X.. April L-To the
Editor ot The Be: I want to kindly
thank the World-Herald for giving our
city the free ad In regard to having the
champion long-distance office seeker.
Now 1 have always contended that I
never allowed anyone to outdo me In
generosity and 90 per cent of the citl
sens ot Florenc will join me In agree
ing with th World-Herald If they will
add one more championship to us, for
without doubt we have the champion
liar also. No doubt trie liar would like
to hav me do Just what hs has ac
cused me of. to hav as many of my
friends as possible write my name on
the ballot as every vote written in
would be one less for Paul's opponent.
Say, Mr. Liar, you must bru?h up in
politics if you expect to be elected to
misrepresent our city In the council for
th next two years. You must not think
because you got that magnificent vote
for the nomination that you are elected.
Let's see, was It six or s?ven votes you
got? And say, remember, you had no
opposition. Wss it through your smooth
work that the republicans of Florence
were disfranchised and had no oppor
tunity to have their names appear on
the ballot except by petition? Are you
responsible or is It Jasper that had
Paul's petition circulated two days be
fore the fake primaries were called?
Was It Paul or I who was afraid to cross
swords? If I had any notion of running
for mayor those primaries would have
been called fifteen days before election.
J. S. crossed swords with me one and
you can safely bet if he lives aa long
as you say I have been mayor, he will
not want to repeat the battle. I will
add In conclusion that 1 have no desire
to go Into the gum-shoe method In
politics aa the champion gum-shoe man
Is In your ranka and he wilt need th
whole stock of gum shoes when Baker,
Raldrige or Blackburn gets through with
him. F. 8. TUCKER.
The Water Power ( the State.

To th Editor of The Bee: The prob
lem ot utilising th water, power of the
state Is a difficult one.

question of capital; second, the abllitr
of the mechanical engineer who is to
solve the mechanics! side of the problem
Should the state undertake th problem,
or should the corporation be granted the
There sre certain serious objections to
giving the franchise to the corporation
In case the corporation Is to undertake
the work such franchises would be turned
to several corporations, which would give
a diversity of methods, and this would
be a source of great loss in capital and
an inefficient service to the atate, with
higher rates for power to the general
There Is but one proper wsy to utilise
this water power, and that way Is yet t
be found and proven. Now, alio la the
mechanical engineer to properly untold
the problem for the state snd the people?
W should not forget that the work of
the engineer Is not second to the question
For any person to offhand estimate the
cost of th undertaking la a procsaa too
foolish to consider. The Loup rivers are
full of sand and th problem ot sand Ir
th most difficult of all mechanical que
Uone connected with the undertaking.
I sm not discussing the problem which
I believe beat and which w 111 prove moU
efficient snd cheapest. But what Is the
coat per horse power to control th
waters T If the coat be lift per horse
power, then In that esse th cost pe
year for upkeep and expense of operation
with Interest will not be far from !JV per
horse power. ,
Th street railway of Omaha probable

If th cost of utilising power be I10S pe
hors power, then th first outlsy must
be tsao.SM for sufficient power for this

furnished for leas money than they are
If th state Is Inclined to take up th
work ot utilisation, the chief factor la to
permit engineers to submit various meth
ods of utilisation and th approximate
cost of their methods. Th man who haa
the best method should be appointed for
the work. If all other matters are In
proper form. Th chief trouble will be
th method by which th money Is to be
spent When th proper time comes I
will submit a method.

LINCOLN. Neb.. March 3. -To th
Editor of Th Bee: Mr. Roberson, who

cal bias In hrs attacks on Japan. Is
Justly reproved by Mr. TsuJIgaki In to

Christian, carefully nourished by mission
