- What May Be Done.
Members of Omaha's governmental
commission arc just now telling
throueh the columns of The Bee
what each wants to do for Omaha.
Each has his own ideas of reform and
Improvement to be . accomplished
along the lines of the particular de
partment he is In direct charge of,
and each is making suggestions of
more or less pertinence. But, and
this is a fact that each of the com
missioners is well aware of, nothing
in the way of radical departure from
old methods may be achieved until
Omaha has a new charter. - The time
between now and the day when a
new charter can become operative will
ba wasted, however, unless it be de
voted to the making of plans for the
future. The commissioners are sug
gesting, tentatively perhaps, changes
they would like to see effective. It
is for the citizens to consider these,
and to join with the commisisoners
In planning for a bigger and a better
Omaha. A charter conference might
well be provided for tnfj its work
can not bear fruit Inside of .half a
year, yet it will be time saved if thejpolnt of the wmVMt, 0ur I)oaUns
draft of a new charter, tested by
public discussion of Its every provi
sion, Is ready to hand over to the
charter commission when It is ap
pointed under the "new law next year.
The Commercial club, Real Estate ex

similar organizations might .. well
unite with the members of the city
council in providing for such confer
ences. The time is none to soon to
The Democratic Lineup.
The apparent play, of ' the Clark
forces of late has been to decry Wil
son as a lost hope In the democratic
presidential race simply to dismiss
the New Jersey governor from all
consideration. But that will not
quite work when the situation is
canvassed from a disinterested point
of view. . , f . , ,
Indeed, Wilson's , managers cite
figures to show that he will go into
the Baltimore convention with, the
largest , pledged delegation, 366 to
date, as against Clark's 349, Under
wood's &6, Harmon's 3 $; Fobs' 36,
Marshall's 30, Baldwin's 14 and
Burke'B 10. None of these figures
in themselves really amount to any
thing when it is remembered that it
takes two-thirds to nominate. Gov
ernor .Marshall of Indiana is being
mentioned more and more as the man
who. may win the nomination, while
It is possible to find many leaders
who say off hand that both Wilson
and Clark ar out of it. .
With Mr. Bryan yet to reckon with
and ever yet, the democratic situation
is purely a guess. There are reasons
. -a- f ' v' - . l.i
that seem to make Harmon and Un-
derVoo3'1nlp6s8lble,f but 'such ,rfia
sons to an outsider do not suggest
themselves stropgly as to Clark.fUj
sen, Bryan or Marshall. Marshal,1:
being groomed as a man who has of
fended nobody and could be endorsed
by all factions.' This may yet make
blm the nominee and then defeat him
in November. V.
"-Nebraska, King of the West.
Nebraska is pre-eminently the king
of the western states in agricultural
supremacy.. Farm statistics recently
Issued by the Union Pacific simply
to show, what all western states are
doing' bring this out-pointedly by
almost any comparison made. For
instance, of the transmissouri states
from Kansas Norf.h, Nebraska ranks
first . in ' the production ; of oats,
first In corn, second in chickens and
third in r wheat, striking a . better
average than any other state in the
, California, that reputed prodigy
of empires, Is not even in Nebraska's
class in any of these, though it comes
nearer in chickens than anything
else, Nebraska in 1910 counted
more than 9,000,000 chickens on its
farms, while California-was able to
count not quite 6,000,000. Of wheat,
to which California sows vast areas,
Nebraska in 1911 produced 41,574,
000 bushels, and California but
8,640,000. Of course California is
not a corn state, while Nebraska In
1911 raised 165,925,000 bushels and
Nebraska raised 34,750,000 bushels
of oats and California 7,140,000
Nebraska has only begun to de
velop. Us population falls below
California's and Kansas', but when
this state is more thoroughly de
veloped it will still further outstrip
all its sister states of this great west.
College Athletics and Scholarship.
Dr. Newell Hillis of Brooklyn fears
that, wholesome as college athletics
are, our young men may get to
thinking more of them and less of
their studies than makes for idealism
In higher education. In this connection
he repeats the quotation from Lord
Bacon, "Tell me what the young men
in our uni versities are thinking about
and I wllj tell you what the institu
tion will be for the next generation."
Athletics, of course, have come
Into the university and college to stay,
having been made a part of the of
ficial life by many. Of course,: those
thinking men like Dr. Hillis do not
mean, in sounding the Baconian
warning, to dispute the elemental
merit in athletics; they mean to
emphasize the necessary of a better
adaptation of athletics to the uses of
higher' "education. Bettor, indeed,
not have, the athletics at all th&r. to
have yeang men going to college and
university primarily for them.
WHAT I WANT TO DO FOE OMAHA
By John J. Ryder, to. Charge
As at present constituted the Omaha
police department is not in a proper
state of efficiency to cope with the
duties assigned to Its care. The total
number on the roll of the department is
135. This includes the chief, his cleric,
two captains, one lieutenant five ser
geants, two desk sergeants, one court
officer, fifteen detectives, two turnkeys.
six traffic officers, two patrol conductors,
four; chauffeurs, one matron and eight
patrolmen on special duty.. Thus we
have seventy-four men for active patrol
dujy, day and night, We ought to have
not less than 125 men for such duty and
150 would not be In any way excessive,
compared to the number of men avail-able
In other cities of our size and Impor
tance. It should be borne In mind that Omaha
is one of the great way stations of the
country, situated almost exactly in the
center of the United States. Through
its gates must pass thousands of tran
sients every month. A goodly proportion
of these stop off here, and many of the
classes that prey on society necessarily
come this way and stop for a longer or
shorter period. Omaha as a railroad cen
ter stands among the first of the land,
t Vt A m A JUsk 4 .........
latlon Is large as a result of this situa
tion, and not all of It Is of a desirable
character. The proportion of crimes, and
misdemeanors originating in railroad
travel and in and about railroad stations
and yards Is quite large. It engages the
attention of the department to a greater
or leser degree every day In the year,
as do the acts of all too many men who
drop' off here on their way east or west
across the continent.
Strict constructionists, If I may so call
them, continually Insist that the com
paratively small number of useless people,
men and women of the under-world,
shall have the close attention of the
department, night and day. This in
order that they may not drink liquor
during certain hours when the . saloon?
are closed, that they shall not be allowed
to gamble, to carry on Illicit Masons, or
to transgress the laws In any way. No
one can quarrel with this contention for
the strict enforcement of law, and an
officer sworn . to enforce the law es
pecially cannot take any exception to th
demand. , But the logical result should
not be lost sight of. . With a very sma'l
foroe of peace officers, to keep any great
number of them confined to any one sec
tion, on regular or special duty. Is to
cut down the number that Is available
for the duty of protecting the great mas
of decent, law-abiding citizens, who re-

ODD FACTS ABOUT CONVENTIONS
One of the Noisiest on Record, and Others.
New York Times.
The unexpected actually occurred at the
Chicago convention of 1880, that nom
inated uartieid and Arthur. This was a
remarkable convention In every way. The
demonstration for Grant the third-term
candidate of 30 unwavering delegates
was never equaled In determination. Sev
eral times since the outburst following a
nomination, noticeably that of Bryan and
ef rR(wsevelt,v consumed more time, but
hHfcl of"human endurance for shoot
ing, 'singing and all devices for creating
h6tse by lung power was that started by
the speech of Roscoe Conkllng, In which
Grant was placed before the convention.
Nevertheless, in spite of the roar, the
nomination of the presidential candidate
went to a man for whom no nominating
speech was made, and when Arthur was
offered as a candidate for nomination for
second place the delegates of the middle
west and the northwest asked who he
was. He was not known outside of New
York and adjacent states. He was nomi
nated. Both nominees of one convention
Only two permanent chairmen of na
tional conventions were ever nominated
for president Seymour and McKinley.
The first was named In the convention
over which ha was presiding in New York
City. He vacated the chair while the
ballot was being taken, but returned to
decline the honor which was later thrust
upon him. That was in 188$. He was also
the permanent chairman of the conven
tion that nominated MeClellen and Pen
dleton In Chicago In 1864.
Pendleton was a delegate to that con
vention, and when he received the nomi
nation as vice presidential candidate he
accepted from the platform.
McKinley waa permanent chairman of
the convention that nominated Harrison
and Reld in Minneapolis In 1892. Four
years later McKinley won the presidential
nomination at St. Louis.
The only republican United States sen
ator now living who was permanent
chairman of his party's convention is
Senator Lodge of Massachusetts. The
way he adjourned the convention that
nominated McKinley and Roosevelt IS a
story In Itself. The only hurrah In that
Philadelphia convention followed the nam
ing of Theodore Roosevelt. The work of
the convention was over. Chairman Lodge
was standing at his desk waiting for the
"amen" motion; delegates were scram
bling to get out of the hall; the crowd had
gone. Senator Piatt of New York had
fallen asleep In hia chair in the front row.
Representative Sereno Payne was trying
to restore the easy boss to waking con
sciousness. Chairman Lodge looked down
on the acene and took the cue.
"On motion of Representative Payne,
which Is seconded, the convention stands
adjourned," said Senator Lodge. He
struck the table with his gavel, picked
up his hat and left the platform.
The only ex-confederate who ever pre
sided over a national convention was
Donelson Caffrey of Louisiana. The con
vention was that of the sound money
democrats, who nominated Palmer and
Buckner In Indianapolis In 1896.

be true. A glance over the "detail"
sheet will show why policemen are not
often seen In residence neighborhoods.
The beatt they are assigned to travel
embrace such Urge sections of territory
that about all the officer can do Is to
make the distance between the limits of
his beat at long Intervals, and keep In
touch with headquarters at stated times.
What Omaha must have is 1 an In
crease of fifty-five patrolmen, and If
necessary an emergency measure should
be put through at the coming session
of the legislature to provide such ln
orease of the force. Then, to utilise
them to the best advantage, Omaha
should have at least two substations,
one north and one south. Each substa
tion would be worth three or four men,
In its moral effect, and would offer the
Immense advantage of having the men
in closer touch with their superiors at
all times. Thus emergency calls in
each district would be answered quickly,
and effective work could be done that
is now impossible. Every citizen should
study this matter out as his business
as much as that of the police depart
ment; and If It appeal to his judgment
he should take an Interest In It sufficient
to demand the putting of the plan into
effect as soon as possible.
The property now occupied by the
antiquated, central police station, at
Eleventh and Dodge, should be sold. It is
very valuable and admirably suited for
jobbing purposes, with trackage In the
alley. The jail In the rear Is suited for
any purpose, but. a place of confinement
for prisoners, and the present city jail
is a disgrace to our city and our state.
It is calculated to destroy many; it
could never, by., any possibility save one
man or woman who may deserve saving
to good citizenship. Sufficient money
could probably be raillzed. from the sale
of this quarter-block to buy a lot
more centrally located and erect thereon
a hall of justice t hat would be a
credit to the city a place of salvation,
Instead of an eyesore and an ante room
a hall of justioo that would be a
from the - humanitarian standpoint, and
the place should be wiped out as soon
as possible. ., . -
The new central station, or-hall of
Justice, should have separate apartments
for juveniles and for women, also
facilities for keeping accidental offend
ers (part from habitual criminals. It
should also have an-assembly room for
officers, where they could rest when
off duty,' drill when necessary, be regu-
larly Instructed In the ordinances they
are expected to enforce, and continually

at Baltimore two months later, on June

tion, which also met at Baltimore a few
days later, on June 23, and . nominated
