"- Taft Efficiency and Economy. Adoption of the Taft program of efficiency aad economy In the matter of departmental reorganization as outlined in the president's message to congress would mark the fur therest advance ever achieved in civil service reform. Congress should loss no time in acting upon these recommendations. N The president. undoubtedly, will have popular sup port la his bold, unselfish efforts to eliminate politics from public offlcs- holding and reduce the whole admin istration of government, so far aa In hla power Ilea, to a basts of the max imum efficiency at the minimum ex pense. Those not In favor of this, those who believe in making officisl proferment the foot ball ot politics, mar be expected to antagonise the president In this courageous aad businesslike advance. President Taft Is not guessing In msklng his, estimates; bs says be has found by diligent inquiry that the government is losing, for Instance, at least $10,000,000 annually by dupli cation and overlapping In certain departments. What good reason ran be urged against uprooting this system? Ills most pronounced re form, perhsps, Is that placing first and second-class postmasters under the civil service, requiring all of their time for tha office and. doing away with the assistant postmasters. This Is the most emphatic proof ot his determination to divorce office- holding from politics, for' tremen dous patronage power lies In the dis position ot big postoffica plums. A saving of 14,(00,000 ansaallr could be effected br this change, he aaya. Why not make tha change and aave the millions! And so oa down tha list the presi dent goes, through the Postoffica, Treasury and Interior departments, aa well aa tha Departments of Justice and Commerce and Labor. ' And he la specific with his proposals, not general. Ha hsa located tba sources of waste, extravagance and poor service) and ahowa how efficiency and economy are possible and exactlr where. He baa put up to congress the most aerloue sort of a business proposition. Caa any antl-Tsft fac tion la congress afford to p!r poli tics over It? Here ia the best chance ret for putting into practice some of tha preachments about good govern ment Good government la not wasting tha people's moner br re taining political parasites and sine cures when tha moner might be saved and the business of the people better transacted br kicking out tha parasites and abolishing the sine cures. Hera It a tin chance for all true reformers to follow President Tsft In one ot tha greatest reforms yet proposed. Alaska's Banner Gold Tear. Alaska, ia expected . to - produce mora gold this year than aha has in any single year ot her history. This prediction is made in the Pacific aorthweet oa tba basis ot reports of early sluicing that hsvs coma from Nome, Tanana, Iditarod and other place., Will these reports prompt another big rush to Alaska and what effect on prices would a continued Increase la gold production have at thla time? Theaa are questloaa of vital Interest suggested by the prospect. Gold hss never lost Ita lure for men and it is probable that In tha event of any decided boom In the production ot tha Alasksn fields, large numbers of prospectors will find their way. as In other days, Into that dlstsnt land. However thla mar turn out, one finds himself hoping thst tha en larged output will, somehow, aot have Ha natural effect ot further stimulating the price market, though It la quits agreed br now that gold production and the coat ot living are Inevitably related. But there la another point ot par ticular interest suggested br these reports, and that ia this: whst ad vance Alaska la making is In spite snd not br means of governmental aid. Congress stolidly Ignores ex ecutive recommendations for the provision of a aattable form of gov ernment under which the great pen insular might be brought to some thing like normal development The natural resources are there, but they need different regulations to thrive ss ther should. War doss congress continue to ignore Alaska's needs snd ther are the whole country's seeds while It spends its time play lng politics? ' Bad Pavement. New York newepapers are agita ting ways snd means of getting better pavement laid on the streets of that city. The World aaya: "The pava- menta of New Tork are the worst la the world." We are aot prepared to coincide literally with that but the World goes on: TIm pa re menu are ba4 among other reasons, because of a lack ot apsclai knowledc of pa visa, because the meth od are antiquated, tha workmanship slovenly, snd because the hupscUoa Is la faulty, and because the tastwatlea ts In sufficient. They are costly to keep la order and hard to clean, and too snucb I Scene is (Ivan to builders, transit com panies and prtvat In terms ftrae rally to obstruct and blockade them. Repairs at too Ions delayed, competition la Inter farad with by restrict! spedflcatlons. particularly with respect to asphalt pav- Inc and the whole subject f street pav ing Is dealt with aaecooonilcsJIy and In efflcleatlr by tnc city. Most of these reasons might apply ts either cities beside Gotham, and added to them la the reason of graft.! which some western cities know sbout One of the commonest sources of fraud and extravagance in our cities la to be found In this very matter of street paving. Shrewd and unscrupulous contractors, by manipu lation, bare boon able to run things to suit themselves, getting rich by laying a cheap pavement that needed repairs and replacement frequently, while tha city baa gone on stupidly tolerating k. How la the best wsy of handling the problem? Tne fundamental fault in New Tork, aaya the World, ia the absence ot a central authority charged with the entire responsibil ity. Well, In Omaha and other cities with commission forms of govern ment, this central suthority should be had and we should bs abla to get better results. Wa shall see what wa ahall see. Good Ilea for Commissioner Y. J. D. ("Dad") Weaver Every one who known "Dad" Weaver is sure be would make a good councilman for Omsha under the new commission plsn of government "Dsd" knows more men engaged In mercantile bualaees In Omaha than any other person, and hs knows what the business men wsnt from their city government. "Dsd" hss been bead of tha hustlers' committee, snd one ot the chief doers ot tblnga for Ak-Sar-Bea of the Den from its Incep tion, nnd baa tbua demonstrated his ability to cope with complicated af fairs. Incidentally, "Dad" need to work for The Bee In Its advertising department, and we know tha city could have no more faithful public servant. George H. Thummel. Tasted on any standard of In telligence and efficiency, George H. Thummel would make a good mem ber of tha new council. His experi ence . In ' municipal administration harks back to his residence In Grand Island before be became a cltixea of Omaha, and la reflected la thla an- doraemsnt from the Grand Inland Independent: Mr. Thummel waa always numbered among the best aad most procraastr cltlsen. The Impress ot his work and of his executive ability, of hla n terprts snd publlo spirit has been left an many a Grand Island Institution aad In many of our publlo affalra. Certainly his candidacy aa a commissioner at Omaha la the most complet and em phatic refutation of th Srguuunt that sble men should not be secured tor com missioner. Ill former Grand Island neighbors snd frtende will heartily lota: th Independent In unreservedly and un qualifiedly commending him to the 1 ll ama of Omaha aa one of their executive under th new plan of sot ernment and hop for him a splendid majority la th first centrals loner eteatlon the me tropolis. Mr. Thummel hss bees Identified with Omaha bow for mora tbaa ten years, aad la oas of the men endorsed by the Cltlsena' . union. , Harry B. Zlmman. t . Harry B. ' Zlmman made a good councilman for nine years, and all will agree that be will make good councilman again. ' There ia not a maa In or out of office In Omaha who baa kept closer track of city affairs, or who knows as much about ths actual conditions snd needs of our municipal government That he la a persistent, tlghtsr In the public Interest, and haa the courage of his convictions. Is proved by his entire career. Ilia personal platform ts a comprehensive outline for municipal progress, although It possibly over shoots the mark In some directions. Our amiable democratic contem porary seems to be laboring ander a fearful delusion aa to the purpose of the presidential preference pri mary ao far as it applies to demo cratic candidates. Ths primary la not to indicate the choice of the democracy unlesa It coincides with ths choice of Mr. Bryan. . The dsmage . done by spring freshsls to Nebraska bridges finds the fund for state aid to county bridge building exhausted. But with the legislature only a fsw months away, the bridge builders no doubt will be willing to taks a chance oa a deficiency appropriation, other things being favorable. On careful investigation tha grand Jury finds thst whtls ths paring cob tractors have fallen abort of specifi cation requirements of quality and thickness, their Intentions were good. It la worth noting, however, that but one case waa unearthed where the contractors hare given tha city mora than waa stipulated. The first round la the contest tor commission plan offices merely qual ifies for the aacoad round. Perhsps the voters will ba doing the aixty candidates annffed out la the Initial trial a real kindness avsa tf they do not recognise It to be such.

Tha eveat Is featured for Thursday, the 11th Inst., with Prime Minister Asq tilth la charge ef the meas ure. Oa tar former occasion horn nil bills wer Introduced In th commons tha first by Prim Minister Gladstone in ItM and the second by the "grand old maa" In 1M. Th first met defeat in the commons by a division ef the liberal party ea the issue raised. The second measure was passed in th common by a substantial majority, but wa rejected by the House, of Lords. Ia th succeed' lng nineteen years the energy and skin of borne rulers were directed toward eliminating the power of the paere. It was a long, wearying, nerve-racking watch for opportunities to batter the walle of hereditary privilege and power. With eourase, patience and unity the Irish natlonslltta pressed the struggle In every direction calculated to uproot or weaken thla dominant power, supporting every measure of progressive reform brought forward by th ministry. In Sua time the persistent opposition of th peers te beneficial aisasurea forced the terna of ending or mending th House ot Lord te a vote of the people resulting In the triumphant return of the liberal ministry a year ago. The restricted veto powei of the peers for the first time makes possible the recovery of home rule for Ireland. Wail th peer possessed co ordinate power the chance ef auch a me sura being passed by th House of Lords were below sere. Should the coming measure command the united sup- pert of the liberal party (roup Its pas- sag by ths commons at three suveeaslv sessions will make it a law In two years, regardless of the opposition of th peers.

A permanent and far-reaching result of th coal miner strike In Great Britain la noted by th London correspondent of the New Tork Post In the Impetus given 41 .a fuel. There was an enpreesdsnt edly large attendance at th Institution ef Mechanical Knglnser te hear Dr. Ru dolph Dteeel give an account of hla oil engine, and the newspapers have heaa d. voting columns at their space to th sub ject. When the Selaadla. a Msf-toa ell driven steamer, appeared In the London dock a few week ago. ther was a good deal ef sensational talk about th de thronement af King Coal aad th doom of that commercial aad Industrial prosperity which had rested so largely upon our coal supply. Dr. Diesel himself think thla a groundless scare. England, hs poults out will always have an advantage la he mineral wealth. sMemuch as her coal fields are a vast ell reservoir. The coal tar new being produced In Great Britain aad largely wasted, contain oil enough to keep th antlr British navy auppUed with liquid fuel. Dr. Dtaaai tsreeeea th day whoa all coal brought a th suifaee will b con verted probably at th pit head. nt gas. soke and oU.
