Slightly over 5.009 votes were east In
th tornado worn! election to which The
Bee refers. Within ti8 of tho same num
ber were cast at tho special election last
spring at which the editor of The Deo,
and fourteen associates, were elected to
frame a new city ol tarter. Apparently
the people were about as eager to vote
under the new system as under the old.
Which reminds us that "Figures
won't lie, but liars will figure." If
The Bee were to compare the ontlre
receipts of tho Water hoard with the
revenues of tho old water company
from sales of water within the limits
of Omaha alone, it would bo called
good and plenty. But that would bo
on a par with what tho World-Herald
man here tries to put acroBs In the
hope of getting by with It undetected,
At tho charter election last spring,
in which Omaha alono participated,
the total vote was D.687, of which
tho editor of The Bee received 3,710.
The total vote In Omaha on the ro
cent bond election was not "within
100 of tho Rarue number," but was
3,8.10, of which 1,044 were for the
bonds and 2,48C against them. The
charter election thus brought out a
voto greater by 1,857, or CO por cent,
than the bond election, and tho pop
ularity of the bonds, specially
boostod by the World-Herald, is
moasurcd by a little moro than one-
fourth tho vote polled by tho editor
of Tho Boo.
While no vital issue turns upon

Speaking of the Weather,
Now that wo have ft now chief of
tho woathor bureau at Washington
perhaps wo may reasonably expect a
now brand of weather. Though his
predecessor has not been personally
In chargo of the elements for some
tlmoi the old force of assistants would
naturally hesltato to make any radi
cal changes In tho general meteoro
logical policies of thts country, pre
ferring to leave so dolca,te a task to
a new head. '
Prof. Charlos F. Marvin Is now, or
will be as soon aa tho senate confirms
his appointment, chief of the weather
bureau. Tho first thing wo shall ex
pect of him Is to mako good oh the
flrst-of-tho-weok prediction for cool
woathor and thunderstorms. The Im
mediate effect ot that forecast was
much moro humid and sultry
woathor. Prof. Marvin stops into an
office of large responsibility, but
no smaller opportunity. Boinethiug
seems to have been seriously wrong
with the climatic conditions In this
country slnco tho vIsU ot llalloy's
comet Summers have boon abnor
mally dry and hot It la time for A
change, If the new administration
can give It to us, it will get all the
reward it earns. Regardless of po
litical linos, tho people will rise up
and coll Prof. Marvin blessed If ho
can turn tho trick,
Playing Ho Favorites.
Perhaps tho best that can bo said
for Mulhall la that ho Is playing no
favorites in his wholesale bombard'
moat of public men with sinister In
nuendoes, Those who at first char
acteristically leaped to the conclusion
that all Mulhall said must be truo
because defamatory ot prominent
public men now havo ample ground
on which to base a radical rovlslon
ot their views.
It is doubtful it Uio country has
ever had a real counterpart of this
Mulhall blackwashlng, in which no
ono has been sparod whose name it
seomod convenient or desirable to
bandy. This upheaval, It will be re
called, is tho result of the president's
sinister lobby alarm. If tho st&t ot
the president's mind could be made
public it doubtless would show some
very different Impressions than thoso
actuating his appeal for tho probe.
With tho names ot some of the most
conspicuous leaders ot the democracy
caught up In tho vortox of the storm
of Mulhall's evidently reckless, state
ments, It is easy to bollovo that the
administration would now welcome a
finish of the affair,
Tho St Louts clty council has
passed an anti-tipplng ordinance,
making it unlawful to give or receive
a gratuity in a publlo eating place.
At once men shako their heads and
Bay it cannot be enforced. That has
been the common American view, but
London is credited with having 850
tipleso hotels and restaurants. Tip
ping can be xlono away with in Bt
Louis or any other American city, as
well as in England, when employers
and patrons do their part toward its
abolition. The part for employers Is
to pay a full, fair wage and relieve
the patron from the onus of piecing
out the pay ot tho employe after he
had already probably paid too much
for his Bervlce. The part tor the
patron is to put aside false pride and
stand on bis rights and sense of Jus
tice and refuse to bo filched. Per
haps a law or ordlance rigidly en
forced will bring such participation.
It so, tipping will go, In nine cases
out ot ten, as folks well know, a tip
Is given simply because It is custo
mary. If bo, the scheme works In St
Louis, why not everywhere. .

8arlna; What Wo Mean.
OMAHA. July 30. To the Editor of The
Be l Some believe that language was in.
vented to conceal our thoughts, yet It
people would occasionally say what they
mean our knowledge would bo greatly
increased, and no ona need be any worse
for It. When a man says his mother was
the best cook on earth he moans that
when he was young he had ar. appetite
like an ostrich, but now since he has
learnod to drench his stomach with chill-
con-came and bad whisky his wife, nor
anyone else, can cook a dinner that will
tempjf his appetite. A man who has Ion
abused his stomach Is always Inclined to
abuse his wife because the victuals will
not keep oompany with his worn out di
gestive apparatus. I have always thought
too, that when a young woman says she
Is tired of life that she only means she
Is too lazy to be useful. She Is suffering
under calamities which might easily be
avoided If she only knew how to turn the
trick. If a woman frames her philosophy
of life and draws her notions of hcppl-
ness from novels ard golf clubs It Is cer
tain that she will be tired of Ufo before
she ever learns that most of our un-
happlness is due to our Ignorance: and
those, therefore, who say they ara weary
ot life simply mean that they are ashamed
to work with their hands, too Impatient
to polish .their minds, or too selfish to
labor for the good of others. By all
means let us say what we mean.
On every silver dollar there is an in
scriptlon which reads "In God we trust"
Which being Interpreted means that most
of us trust tn the all-powerful dollar,
our hearts are continually drawn toward
