Thanks awfully for the Information, Get Them to Stop Over. Tho approach iof the season of transcontinental summer tourist travel should bo & signal for us to do something, if wo can, to develop the stop-over habit for Omaha. This travel is headed in both directions, people from tho cast going west to tho mountains and Pacific coast, and people from tho West going oast to tho lakes and Now England resort. Omaha is precisely the place to break a long trip, otherwise likely to be tedious And tiring, and hun dreds of tourists would unquestion ably take advantage of an excuse to stop here If given half-way assur ance of enjoying reasonable comfort and spending tho time ploasantly end profitably. In this respect Omtha can appeal to visitors at least as well as any other interior city, and a little moro attention to tho entertainment side would en hance Its reputation with transcon tinental travelers who now too often pass ub by. The Ship of Friendship. The toast proposed by Mr. Bryan at the farewell breakfast to tho visiting foreign peace delegates ex presses in most follcltous words a thought, which peace lovers tho world over will heartily endorse. Those aro tho words used by Mr. Bryan? Ever since the earliest days men hare been building ships. They aro stilt build ing them, but the ship wo aro planning Is different from Uia others. Its com pos Is the heart; Its shells crry cool will) Its mlssUes are projects! by the smokeless powder of love) Its captain is tho Trine of Poica I ask you all to drink with m to this new battleship the ship of friendship. Ko target con withstand the shots that friendship sends abroad. It Is reassuring to know that tho nion at tho head of our government, particularly tho president and his secretary ot state, who are charged with the conduct of our foreign re lations, are so thoroughly lmbuod with tho spirit of amity toward othor nations, and oarnesUy bent upon remaining on frlondly terms with all. It goes without saying that It must be peace with honor, yet the enjoyment of peace must do- pond upon willingness to accord Justice as well aa to Insist upon justice. It Is to be hoped that Mr. Bryan will achieve his nmbltlbn to Ball tho Ship of Friendship Bafely through tho, waters for the term ot his enlist ment as chief mate.

Never mind, we will try again and fare better soma other time. Tho Bee is irrevocably against turning tho public library out ot Ita present beautiful structure in order to let the building ba used as a po lice station, and we bellev that more than nine-tenths of tho people ot Omaha are of the same opinion, Tho state fair management is playing up its proposed baby show. Here's a Up fof our Ak-Bar-Ben gov ernors. The beautiful baby crop In Nebraska 1b always a record breaker, and nowhere will the product grado higher than right here in Omaha and vicinity. The women accompanying the dentists in attendance on tho state association sessions here publicly declared- that they never had such a good time at anyi other meeting When you feeleet your convention city next time, dentists, leave the choice to your wives, daughters and sweethearts. Enlarging the Veto Power. One of the hills lntrodnced into congress by Senator Nolsoa of Minne sota proposes to enlarge tho presi dent's veto powor by pormitUng him to ct oat soparatfl Item afappro- prfation bills that appear' objootiq nble to him. Tk4 power, to vetoar- tloular appropriation Items is vested in the governor by many ot our state' constitutions, noticeably in Ne braska, and It is exercised In this respect as a rule oven moro frio quontly than the veto power as ap plied to goneral legislation. It tho executive 1b to hayo a check upon lawmaking, tho argu ment in favor of permitting him to treat the appropriation bills ltom by Item is all ono way, Tho president has often found It necessary to veto an entire appropriation moasuro be cause of some one vicious section or Undesirable rider, as was dono, for example, by President Taft when he Vetoed tho sundry, civil appropria tion bill Just before ho went out ot office to which a clause had boon attached designing to nullify the en forcement of the Sherman anti-trust law upon labor unions and farmers' combines. Again, onactments havo been smuggled Into tho statutes which would never have escaped a veto except tor tho fact that they were hitched on to appropriation measures which tho president did not feel warranted in holding up. It must not bo supposed, how. ever, that this enlargement of the president's veto powor can be easily or quickly brought about, The only way it can be accomplished is by amending tho federal constitution, which is a slow and cumbersome process at best It must be remem bered, too, that there is some senti ment against vesting tho executlvo with any check whatever upon the lawmaking body a sentiment which has manifested Itself in the com plete Abolition of tho veto power In a few states, and many cities. As suming that the amendment is ap proved by congress and submitted for Ratification by the states. It cannot count with certainty upon smooth sledding all the way. Even democrats In moments of raro candor cannot withhold admir ation for the superior grade ot glue which sticks $800,000,000 a year of Uncle Sam's coin to republican palms, Olvll service Is a benevolent institution for those inside, an ob stacle to efficiency in the minds ot those eager to break, in. In addressing tha law students at Harvard, Former President Taft facetiously declared that he had re ceived much of his legal training at the expenso of the public. But that Is only a slight variation from th experience of other lawyers, for It is the rule rather than the excep tion that lawyers get their most Talnahle training st the expanse ot Tlilrty Years Agi A notable entertainment was given the editorial excursion brought In by the Uurllnxton, including Sty editors and editors' wives, mostly from eastern and central states.

Mcennfil Ontnhlittsr In France, Gambling Is a licensed institution In Franc. A tux of is per sent levied by the government last year yielded a revenue of nearly $10,003,000. A proposal to raise the tax to BO per cent, when dis cussed in the Chamber of Deputies last week brought forth direct charges of wide-spread graft, in which deputies and senators were Involved. In the debat It was conceded that there wasn't a "square" game played in France. At the English Casino, a gambling joint at the Gates of Paris, the largest Of its class In France, and commonly patronized by Americans, "steerers," aro employed and "fleecing" practiced. This concern not only splits the rakeoff with tho govern ment, but makes "loans" to deputies and senators, sugars the palms of the police, and Influences every avenue of authority likely to disturb Its plans for steerlm; nnd fleecing victims. "Tho bosses of the Paris gambling hells," declared ono dep uty, "know exnetly the day and tho ho"ur when a house will be raided." Immunity Is purchased by direct bribes and persons high in authority, directly Interested, pro cure favors, so that robbery may be per petrated. The scandal promises to rival in magnitude the wholesale looting of the funds derived from tho sale of con fiscated church property, and reveal the amazing ramifications ot gambling graft. Affairs In Portnsnl. Impartial reports of affairs In Portugal. with very few exceptions, picture condi tions in the pseudo republlo a verging on anarchy. Republican radicals are the master forces of the government and all who neglect, to do homage to the powers that be are treated as onomles. The duchess ot Bedford, an aetlvo worker In Dritlsh prison charities, who has Jnat re turned from Portugal, reports amona other things! "The system of espionage practiced throughout Portugal spreads like a net work, in th meshes of which many un suspecting persona are entangled.

English speaking races boastfully claim supremacy in most things regarded as essentials to .civilization. Particular em phasis Is laid on educational facilities and the dissemination of Intelligence. The latter claim does not appear imposing wncn. contrasted with German and Rus sian mothoda of distributing home and foreign newspaper carry!ng"tha news of the day or week. In England, as well as In the United States, recourse must be had with nevspaper office or news dtolers, tho latter being few and tndu ferently supplied in out of th way places. A correspondent of tho Manchester (Bni. land) Guardian states ho had less diffi culty in seuing: mgiisn papers in a Bavarian village than at horn. Orders for home and foreign newspapers are re ceived at pootofflres, a receipt given for suDscnptions, ana . without further ado tho Papers aro procured and dellvard. The economical German goes-to the post' office to fetch his. papers, but for a small tee they can be delivered at subscribers' houses by th postman, Th Russian posiomce list oi roreign papers is so complete that It contains th names and prlcos of English papers that often can. not b obtained at British rallwar book. stalls.

With th Inception of land reform and peasant proprietary In Ireland a doxen years ago, on df the great obstacles was to procure financial assistance which would enable farmers to lido over sea sons between crops and purchaso stock and equipment, This obstacle was oven come by th organization ot co-opera tlv agricultural banks for loaning money on easy terms to farmers. From this smart beginning havo sprung a large number of co-operattvq banks and their steadily widening operations prompted an official Investigation to determine their solvency. ns well as their methods of business. Tho Investigation has' been completed and. while tha statistical details have not been given out, one conclusion made pubilo is extremely flattering. Whether the bank examined was situated north or south In Tlpperary, Donegal or Mayo, the hem esty or borrowers and managers was demonstrated. The co -operative banks were hampered in various parts ot Ire land, but none of their difficulties aroso from want of good faith and punctuality on the part ot tha borrowers. England Is now seriously considering the organ isation of peasant banks modeled on the Irish plan. . a Drift of British Kmlfrrants. One ot the cheering signs of th times for England Is that while emigration goes forward steadily thef drift toward the colonies Is Increasingly marked. Some Interesting figures on this point were given by Mr. TlarooUrt In tha Rouse of Commons recently. In 1506, of 189,000 emigrants, 77,000, or more than half, went to foreign countries, Last year, of 268,000 emigrants. 120,000, or about SI per cent. went to the British empire. Only about one in six ot those leaving the country Is lost to tho Sag. This tendency Is th more important because the numbers ot the English are few tnough at beat for holding and dcrrelopinc th enormous areas over which they are sprted. Taking; n Chanco. Senator Lee 8. Overman of North Carolina, when a young man, was private secretary of Gov. Vance of that state. Th governor was a candidate for election to th United States senate, and his most formidable opponent was Senator Merrlmon, at that tlm th In cumbent. In tha heat of the campaign young Overman fell In love with Merrlman's daughter, and prosecuted his suit with all th ardor of a southern wooer. At length things reached a stag where ho felt that he could no ldnger continue to hold his position as secretary to the opponent of the father of Ms lady-love. Bo, In heart-to-heart talk with Gov. Vance he confided the trua stat of affairs, setting forth that While his position a secretary was highly ad vantageous to him from a sordid, worldly point of view, it was well sac rificed on the altar of love, etc., etc Don t be a fool, son," interrupted th governor. "It Merrlman can stand rou for a son-in-law, I reckon I can stand you for a secretary!" Overmnn held down both lobs. Wash ington 'Star, VTlplnir n Fit-other.
