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

particularly with respect to asphalt pav-
Inc and the whole subject f street pav

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.

Every one who known "Dad"

British House of Common ef the prom
ised bill restoring legislative home rule
to Iralasd. 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-

April first! Now the worst
Of the wintry day are over;
Now s chance for advance
Of the grasses and th clover.
Sparrowa tit aa they flit
la the sunshine warm and mellow:
Dandelion, man-1cfin
Soon will dot th earth with yellow.
Now the sky arching high
Smile upon the ecuh below It;
Now a cloud like a shroud
Knfolda the sun before wa know It;
First a thrill, tnn n chill.
Then a freakish ind to blow ug.
Is It spring? Now by jlng!
