la the primary, the ballot which will
be handed to the voters will contsln
nothing whatever but the namea of
the candidates. More than that, the
namea will be rotated ao that no

purpose being to equalize the acci

A Useful Labor Bureau.
The New Tork state labor depart
ment seems to have proved already
the value of Its new bureau of In
dustries and immigration. Its annual
report abowa excellent results accom
plished, Indicating what is possible
with experience and development nnd
formatting an object lesson for other
states without such bureaus. '
By articulating the work or this
state bureau with that of the federal
government under the Department of
Commerce and Labor and working In
conjunction nnd co-operation with the
various foreign conauls. It becomes
possible to ddan immense amount of
good for the aliens coming over here
In search of new homes. The report
of the New York bureau aaya it haa
In this first year rendered Invaluable
aid to these Europeans seeking em
ployment and also protected them
from imposition of all kinds. Of
course, to get the .best results under
such a system the co-opera tloa and
confidence or the local foreign con
suls or agents are aeeeaaary aad at
first New Tork did not have these.
The foreign agents looked with mis
giving upon the scheme, doubtless
fearing . some tresspass upon their
official province, but rinding tbey
were entirely mistaken In this ss-
aumptlon, they turned In with a will
ing hand to do what tbey could.
While ail over the country we are

the alien we may well give con
sideration to this plan, which la not

The Methodist blabops in their
annual report to the general confer
ence "endorse" President Tart for his
attempts to promote International
peace aad denounce him aa having
"forfeited all claims to the franchises
of Christian aad sober manhood of
the nation" because at hla request
one of his cabinet officers delivered
an address or welcome to an Inter
national' convention of brewers held
Moat people will, we believe, ed
it that the president's powerful In
fluence In behalf of world peace Is
of far greater Importance to the
Christian manhood or this country
and the world than the negative Inci
dent for which he la so emphatically
eosdemned. .If. however he haa tor-
.aii. etaime l ae the Christian
and -sober manhood of his country
why bother about endorsing him at
all? It seems to us our good Metho
dist friends nre strikingly Inconsist
ent In this. It Is extremely doubtful
If any president of the United Btatea
would have answered the appeals to
him to forbid his cabinet officer at
tending a convention representing a
business which all governmanta have
legalised and made legitimate any
differently thaa did President Tatt.
We need not now enter Into dis
cussion of the liquor question, but It
might be worth while to say that
endorsements or this character, tor
aad against, are apt to become too
conventional for very much real ef
fect. Somebody had to make aa ad
dress of welcome, It seemed, to the
brewers gathered from all over the
world, so why not have as good and
stannch a churchmaa as Becretary
Wilson, who might find an oppor
tunity on such aa occasion for exer-
eislng a helpful Influence?

What ta a Hearer
OMAHA. May . To the Editor of the
Bee: There are some young me
Omaha who seem to think that the tarma
"man" and sport" are aynonymoua.
Don't confuse them. "Sports" come in
several varieties and styles. There Is
only one kind of "man." , There era "tin
horn sports, "cheap sports" and "pick'
led apona." The distinguishing mark of
tka species Is their disrespect for woman
hood. "Tto horn" sports are much given to
tha habit of wearing loud clothes, spend
Ing someone else s money when they can
get It sod extolling their own great
courage aad prowess. .They are gener
ally afraid of mice and men.
"Cheap sports" genera I ty Inhabit the
street cur nets, being found in large sum
hers near the doors of department at ores
and la the vicinity of Sixteenth and Far-
nam streets. -Their chief occupation la
smoking cigarettes sad rattling keye.
Tbey ere termed cheap, because they
often attempt to me he advances to ether
men's wtvea, and because' they cannot
afford te sutisoit wives et their own.
Tbey may he dlstlngutehed In street cars
because their etiquette Is so different
from what R Is In the home or In polite
eeetety. Their trousers seem to be
glued to the seata. Maybe the trousers
are cheap, loo.
Thaa the lest variety, "pickled aporta"
earn to he e porta ef periodical tendencies.
When sober, tbey ere often found to be
substantial, trusted dtisens. They gener
ally eoaarregata la groups and sometimes
la swarma, before they exhibit all the
aathoioatcal sytnptowts. These are only
some of the very apparent differences be
tween a man aaa a sport, plainly stated,
for the porpose et enabling the hoya of
Omaha to dietlnarulah between the two.

On the night of July 17, last, when the
republican state-wide primaries were
opened oa Greevy's lawn. It waa this
same Jim Dahiman that quietly came
serosa the slreet and welcomed the su
preme court Judges, the Judges of the
district court and the esenty candidates
into his home precinct A month later
when the doings of thst eventful night
the passage of the Sbotwell resolutions,
brought from the president of the United
Stales aa American flag to mark the
spot where hie second term campslga
took definite form, it .was this same Jim
Dahlswui that caused te be emblesoned
oa the welcome arch st the dty hall.
"Tsft Flag. Welcome." It took s mighty
big statesman snd patriot to do that It
Is the Irony of fate that this Whits House
flag, floating high In tha air at sunset,
casts Its dancing shadows on Jim Dahi
man' s cottage home.
Jim Dshlmsn Is ons of ths -(try few
democrats In the state of Nebraska that
Is a national figure in hie party. Repub
licans should bear In mind next TuesuXy
when they are adding a few democratic
names to round out their non-partisan
ticket, that Jim Dahiman Is entitled to
their complimentary vote. '

resolutions objecting to the sppolntment
of John Long as chairman of ths msss
meeting held at Alamo hall and pre
sented these resolutions to the Ctrl sens'

league that such s successful meeting

with the membership snd Is known ss a
ward boas. He has been running on the
railroads for some weeka snd aow steps
down for a short layoff and assumes ts

disposed to endorse la substance the letter
of C. H. Henderson recently published la
For many years country bank era
throughout the state have felt tha ased
of an institution of this kind. A good
company with sound and ample financial
hacking suck as this company seems likely
to have will find plenty of business
almost from the start. There Is st this
time, sad haa bean for some time past a
demand for form loans that country
bankers could not meet owing to the fact
that there haa been no company of ade
quate capital and equipment to take care
of the eudneas promptly. '
Being somewhat in touch with the needs
of the western country I feel disposed to
give this company a hearty welcome,
