The Bee reproduces on this page
the article of the Chicago Tribune
discussing 'editorially the position of
Governor Deneen' as candidate for
re-election on the republican ticket
in Illinois. ' '
Every well informed person knows
that the Tribune: has espoused the
cause- of Colonel Roosevelt,' an1 has
indicated its. intention to'support him
for president as the nominee of the
third party. What it says, there
fore, about the relations of the new
party "to the several old parties, and
to the nominees of : those parties for
state and local offices, may be taken
to reflect the viewpoint of the Roose
velt spokesmen, and presumably to
accord with the plans of Colonel
Roosevelt as their leader.
Asa Roosevelt organ the Tribune
says,-in so many words, mat tne
question . is not whether a man who
is a candidate of oneparty should
support the candidate of another
party; but a choice of parties. "The
men who go to a third party," it de
clares, "go out of the,, republican
party.,..They cannot be; supporters of
the one and candidates in the other."
If that is the ultimatum of the
Roosevelt party managers, It is well
to let It be known now, so that every
candidate nominated as a republican

War on Tight Skirts., V'
The presidents of thirty-eight St.
Louis, circles of the National Con
gress 'of 1 Mothers, ' comprising some
of the most prominent women if the
city, have declared r war on the
tight-fitting' skirta which women
and girls are wearing. Among other
adjectives applied to the skirts are
"uncomfortable," "immodest," "lor
flWfent"- These women are serious-
minded mothers, who appreciate that
the' foibles of faehton can reach a
limit. And, in all candor, how much
farther can the tight skirt be carried
This ' is not ft - local protest that
irfcS from -one little', group of
women l it is a part of a very general
expression of disgust for the fashion
and concern for the girl. And the
tight skirt baa not alone created
the feeling ;: it has only brought It to

mothers' war goes, toward beating

THE BEE: OMAHA, FRIDAY, JULY 26,
A ROOSEVELT ULTIMATUM, '
Editorial in the Chicago Tribune.
The progressives who asked Governor Deneen' to define his position
did not ask him, a republican, to declare himself (or Colonel. Roose
velt, a republican. ; ' . 7'1 I
A question 10 put would have been much more embarrassing to the
governor than the one he answered. r .
He was asked, as the republican candidate for governor, to declare
himself for Colonel Boosevelt, the head of the national progressive
party. He was asked to step out of the republican party!into the
national progressive party. .' "v ' 1 "
If he had said he would, he would have have been obliged to re
sign from the republican., state ticket. The' vacancy caused by his
resignation would have been filled by the republican state central
committee, He might or might not have been a candidate for nomi
nation before the state convention of the national progressive party.
He might or might not have been nominated. These are the facts,
whether or not the progressives understand them', or ; are , 6andid ,
enough to admit them.4' ; . ' : :'
Mr. Deneen would have been willing ; to ! make jiisj campaign on
strictly state issues. He would have "straddled'' the embarrassments
if he had been Jforced to a plain declaration. ' Fortunately for him the
progressives endeavored to "straddle."" Tiex wanted toknow whether
t man who is the candidate of one party would support the candidate
of another. ; This is plain enough. r'-v ., - V'

PAPER AS A HOME
Some Uses Not Generally Appreciated by Housewives. '
Tha psper hsbtt Is a food one to cul
tivate. ' It is safe to say that if the
thoughtful housewife should sit down and
coflnt lip-Oie numerous ways In' which she
might advantageously substitute paper for
eloth about the house it would be found
that at least half the ordinary household
tasks could be done with the help of this
common medium. Cloths, unless dili
gently looked after and cleansed ' fre
quently, are unsanitary, and when they
approach the rag state are out of the
question altogether. Paper, on the con
trary, can be discarded immediately after
being .used and possesses the further ad
vantage of .costing, little or nothing. . It
Sp a curious faot that we housekeepers are
generally Joalfc to make use of the or
diparyJhsndy, inexpensive, aids that are
always i at. our. disposal.. Why, even the
printed sheet of the dally paper has un
told possibilities. . it Is a wise. plan for
the housekeeper to keep a few days' sup
ply within easy reach in the! kitchen. A
cheap holder for this purpose may readily
be secured. In addition to the newspaper,
paper ' bags, wrapping,' 'paraf tine, absorb
ent and tissue papers may all play humble
but Important parts In the household
economy. ' 1
There Is abundant chance to use the
daily newspaper, even dosens of times
dally, In the home. If your waste-paper
baskets allow dirt or other fine particles
to "sift 'through the" sides and bottom' a
lining of newspaper VlHvprov' a ' aotfd
retainer." fVoni a double thickness of the
paper form a circular piece, somewhat
larger than the basket bottom, and fold It
hito place. The sides may also tee made
of two tbicknessee of the paper and in
serted inside the edges of the bottom piece
and fastened together with a pin or two.
Garbage pails may be treated in the same
way. Newspaper is most valuable at mov
ing time, It has Just the right spring
to make it effeetlve, breaking the force
of the hard knocks and bumps that the
barrela and packing cases receive. My
finest china has been packed in news
paper alone and transported without
breakage again and again. In this con
nection, however. I would emphasise one
caution: Crumple th PPr and use
plenty of it.
Newspaper has also been . successfully
employed in protecting carpets and jugs
against, the depredation of moths, though
I believe In the added precautionary meas
ure of sprinkling the rugs with camphor
or a similar cotnpouhd. In putting away
winter blankets for the summer months,
nothing better than newspaper can be
"found. It must,-however, be used, gener
ously and carefully folded and tied. .To
remove the grease from coal stovt or gas
range before blacking or washlne' it,
newspaper is excellent. The uses made Of

testify that if used on the bottom of cake
tins it will prove an excellent preventive
against scorching. In the-preparation of
vegetables.' meats, and ..especially fussy
dishes, It may be genuinely helpful.:. A
large sheet of it should first, be spread
upon the kitchen table upon which 11
surplus crumbs, parings and so forth may
be placed. It can readily be seen how
eaally the discarded food scraps can. be
folded up and disposed of without leaving
an untidy work, table behind. This ma
terial can likewise be employed to advan

tlcularly need this protection.
