Coming True.
Another of tho dreams of the
founder of Tho Dee seems to bo com
ing true. At nil times ho was an
advocato of government ownership ot
telegraph and telephone linos. Twlco
a delegate to tho International Postal
congress, and once especially charged
by thd postmastor general to make,
personal investigation ot tho tele-
graph and telophone systems of Eng
land and France, Edward Roso water
was thoroughly familiar with all the
phases ot the problem. Publicly and
privately, through his paper and be
foro committees of congress, he advo
cated governmental ownership of all
means of transmission of messages.
And now, for the second timo within
threo years, a postmaster general had
recommended the acquisition of con

Others of the great policies advo

Up to Fool and Morehead.
Itbor Commissioner Pool has absolutely
refused to enforce the laws here regu
lating tho employment of female labor.
Wo of tho Central Labor union
hero know that Commissioner Pool knows
Hint tho law regarding the employment
of women la being violated In Omaha and
wo know further that he has refused to
enforce It. Ho has oven gone
further and told deputy factory Inspectors
to put tho "soft pedal" on certain fac
tories and above all to abstain from mak
ing any political cnemlfe.
TIicbo definite charges against a
stato official, mado by a member of
tho Central Labor union of Omaha,
arc far too grave to be lgnorod or
lightly passed over. They Involve not
only Mr. Pool, but Governor More
head. If tho governor did not know
the situation before, ho knows It now,
that Is, if it exists, as these men say
It does. And knowing it, what is the
governor going to do about It?
Central Labor union loadors say
whon running for governor Mr. More-
head came to Omaha and sought their
support and ought now to enforce tho
law bo vitally affecting thohi. Yes,
but ho ought to onforco it on tho
broader ground that his oath of bftice
obligates him to.
Mr. Pool may bj playing cute poli
tics in having his deputies "abtnln
from making any political onemies,"
but before ho rounds out his cam
paign for tho democratic nomination
for governor, ho may loom that it Is
bettor to Incur the displeasure of a
few big voters than many little ones.
Canal Keeps Ooetbah.
The man who built the canal will
stay to start ita operation. Goethals

of the editorial section, Union Paclflo

to all employes of tho Union Pacific
shops, and to persons of Omaha, Who
arc dependent on these employes.
It might bo noted, that tho Union Pa
cific has one of the best equipped rail
rood shops In the country. That In the
past they have built steel cars, and also
engines in tho Omaha shops, and now
wo read In the newspapers that tho Union
Paclflo lays off hundreds ot men. On
the same page, wo read Union Paclflo
orders 8,000 freight cars from the east
It Is a fact that tho McKcen company
aro building cars In Omaha, .with sue
cess. Tho same might bo. said of the
Omaha Street Railway company, "and u
is certain that it pays said companies
or they wouldn't do It.
Now why can't tho Union Paclflo build

their men at work In tho Omaha shops?

express purpose of giving dealers an op
portunity of submitting prices on Royal
baking powder, Calumet or any other
good brand. This not only applies to
baking powder, but also applies to a
number ot other Items on tho bidding1
blank. When the contract Is awarded .It
will be explicit and complete In every
detail, enumerating distinctly the quality
and brands of the various items, and so
far as substitution Is concerned you can
say for mo that nothing of this kind will
bo permitted. What they havo been per
mitted to do tn recent years will have no
bearing whatever Upon the future, and
everyone bidding will bo given the same
consideration and will also be given to
understand that they must live up to the
letter of their contract. Mr. Rogers, tho
new superintendent, wilt see that the
goods delivered aro strictly in accordance
with the contract, and neither tho cook
