To Whom it May Concern.
The officers newly elected to ad
minister the municipal affairs of
Omaha under the commission plan of
city government nave made public a
list embodying their selections for
the principal appointive places.
On the face of It, t bis list shows
thst it It the result of a process of
trading, and that it contains nsmes
thst are good, names that are bad
and other Barnes that are only Indif
ferent The presumption and as
sumption will be that these appoint
ments are to be taken as probation
ary, and that tor test for retention
will be the ability of the appointee
to make good. To do this some of
them who hsve been on the payroll
heretofore, without rendering ade
quate service in return, will have to
straighten up and do a good deal
more than tbey have been doing to
earn their money.

searchlight of publicity will be kept
In focus and that It wtll not hesitate
to show up any case of crookedness,

honesty or incapacity la conclusive,
The Bee will feel free to call upon

The Troth About Omaha.
Omaha men with pride in their city
are often pained at the erroneous Im
pressions they find prevailing in the
minds ot good people In the smaller
dtles and towns of the etate. Ex
cept for the seriousness of these
wrong Imprest Ions, there Is an In
escapable humor to find how
ludicrously distorted they are. Of
course, the blame Is not to be laid,
entirely, on the deluded Individual,
but rather more largely upon his
source of tnformstlon. .
It la needless to say If our cam
paign of "Know Omaha Better" Is to
accomplish Its object, the converse
propaganda of blackwashlng Omaha
for 1 selfish purposes will have to
cease. To make Omaha better known
It will be necessary not to have only
the truth exploited, but the coinage
ot fiction to end. To advertise the
commercial resource of the city.
while at the tame time keeping np
the untruthful backfire about the
city's shortcomings, la self-confuta
tion. ,
Omaha has everything to gsta from
being known ss H Is and the more
complete the knowledge, the better
for Omaha, It It aa average Ameri
can city, certainly ao worse, perhaps
a better, tbsa the average when It
comet to morality. This, of course. Is
thoroughly realised by those respon
sible for the blackwashlng and that Is
what mskes It to Irritating. People
who art not in position to understand
this cannot be eeverely censured for
their adverse views, but should and
must be enlightened.
Women in the Pulpit .
The Presbyterlsn holds Its plsce
among the conservative churches
which refuse to ordsln women tor the
ministry, its general assembly hss
rejected the suggestion of a change,
clinging to tta doctrinal belief that
woman ahall "keep alienee" and not
"uiarp authority over man."
That doctrine and not expediency
actuates this assembly may be gath
ered from -the fact that, Instead ot
there being a surplus in ministerial
tupply Just now, there is a decided
shortage. According to official re
port a, 1,000 Preebytertaa churches
ere pastorleet aad the aemlnsrlee are
each year showing smaller numbers
In their else. Ooe-et the prob
lems In this, at well aa some other de
nomination!, It to attract young men
Into the ministry. Nevertheless the
followers of Calvin and Knox refuse
to tall back upon the women for their
reintorotments to the ministry.
Most other professions and voca
tions are wiping out the lines of dis
tinction between mea and women, but
many of the prominent sects of re
ligion, Protestant, Catholic aad Jsw,
decline to follow this trend ot busi
ness and other professional callings.
Tet it mey be Just ss well, for already
the criticism is made, not only by out
siders, but by the church, Itself, thst
It hat more women In ttt pe than
men and needs more of the latter to
increase Its, power and Influence.
Whether putting woman la the ma
jority In the pulpit aa well aa the pew
wonld re-establish the equilibrium is
decidedly euesttonsble.
The Wild Kan from Texas,
Ben Tillman threw away hit pitch
fork when the blustering Jeff Davis
stamped Into the senate. The Ar-
kanasa man raved around tor a while
aad then he cooled down and the
sonth, known for Its conservatism,
began to breathe more freely ta the,
hope that Its last wild msa had found

ot the fever seems to hsve passed.

St Canal Tolls on Domestic Traffic
The house hss twice within the
week voted down the proposition to
levy tolls, upon coastwise traffic on
the Psnama canal. Thlt action It In
line With every attempt to monopolis
tic control of the canal and to make
it a free highway ot domestic trans
portation, which in every sense ot the
scheme It wss intended to be. We
levy no Imposts on Interstate or
coastwise commerce, so It Is asked
why we ehould levy any on commerce
from one ee board to another. More
over the toil and toll-gate system baa
long ago been done away with In thle
country and to all practical purposes
the canal Is a part of continental
America, for we own the land aa well
as the waterway.
The powers behind the toll system
manifestly were not those chiefly to
be benefited from a clear-cut com
petitive basis of transportation and
they were not easily defeated. This
is apparent from the fact thst after
the houss had once voted the proposi
tion down 100 to 10, It bobbed up
again and was then able to muster
111 rotes ss against 147.

tests from Lord Cecil snd his felitwera

the story of the pillage at the reforma
tion? They robbed the Catholic church,
they robbed the monasteries, they robbed
the atmheuae, they robbed the poor, and
they robbed the dead. Then they come here
and when we try to recover some part ot
the pillage for the peer they accuse us ot

I reckon I'm plumb foolish tub be actin

But when 1 smell them posies. I c n see
my dear eli home
Jest a little liitewasned cotlag setun

An' In the aprlng the macks loaded
dowa with purple bloom.
Mother allu loved 'em-said they mad

I wleht they bloomed the hull year
round. Instead of Jest In spring;
But mebbe If they did I wouldn't care o

It s the pleasure that air rarest tnac

So fetch 'em here tub me. oeanee.
