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

city, and a little moro attention to
tho entertainment side would en

respect as a rule oven moro frio

been smuggled Into tho statutes
which would never have escaped a

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

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
