The exposures of a newspaper In Brooklyn procured
the conviction of a boss and his messenger for selling
a Judicial nomination and of the aspirant for buying
It, and this reprehensible conduct of a newspaper
has moved a member of the liar association to In
stitute an Investigation by a committee to sen what
form of legislation would bo most effective In de
terring newspapers from doing aueh things. The
people who wish to mutzle the press are usually the
sort liable to be bitten If the press Is left unmur.zled.
What Is hero said with reference to Brooklyn
holds true also of Omaha. The demand of The
Bee for a legal house cleaning In Omaha brought
out a sneering challenge from the president of
the local Bar association, and the appointment
of an investigating committee, which made an
Innocuous report desplto the fact that sevei&l of
the crooked practices woro of court record
known to Its members. This was followed by
tho appearance of the president of the association
heforo the grand jury demanding the citation of
the editor of Tho Beo with a dofy to provo up or
shut up. But when a shower of Indictments fell
j on the heads of tho blackmailers, frame-up men
i and embezzlers of tho legal fraternity, the blotant
offer to help the county nttorney put the crooks
hohind tho bars was not renewed.
We have no doubt that certain shady lawyers
who believe curtailment of the shake-down busi
ness nn unwarranted interference with legiti
mate practice, would gladly proposo a vote of
coilsuro on Tho Bee's roprohenslblo conduct, and
what alono prevents them is that they are in the
minority, and roputablo and honest lawyers who
constitute the majority would like to shake off
tho blacklegs, though timid about starting it

Let Us Have Pure Milk.
Some twenty-five dairymen and thlrty-flvo
grocers have been charged with selling milk in
Omaha that does not come up to tho required
standard. Whero the city sets up standards It
should seo to It that they are impartially and J
vigorously applied. Wo are paying fancy enough
prices for milk, nnd should not put up with any
thing but tho puro article. Steadily the prlco of
milk has gone up, sometimes without apparent
reason, but the consumers havo to meet the rrico
without alternative. But though wo seem to have
no recourse as to price, wo, aro not so helpless

I am not at all nangulno that anything 1 tthull say
will change tho course of this body with reference
-to this appropriation. Certainly, 1 have had vary
little Influence so far and have produced very lttlo
effect in making objection to some of the appro
priations contained In this bill, but I want, ' Mr,
President, to reoortL my objections, which I think
,ard Intelligent ones,even though not convincing, to
this very largo appropriation, which will be added
to this bill.
This dolorous doclaniation fell from tho lips
of Senator Thomas of Colorado in tho course of
a debate on a bill appropriating $300,000 for u
new hospital in tho District or Columbia. With
out going Into the merits of the question, It Is
of Interest to note the melancholy candor a sen
ator displays on tho floor of tho senate with
reference to his lack of influence as contrasted
with the bumptious claims most senators and
representatives mako on the hustings whon seek
ing re-election. Then their constituents hear
ftom their Hps nothing whatever about any
waning or wanting Influence. On the contrary,
they are regaled with recitations of resplendent
power and prestige and given to understand
that but for tho speaker's presence In tho halls
of congress the whole sphere of the government
might fall to turn upon Us axis.
But taking Sonator Thomas at his word, one
has to go no furthor than the voracious Con
gressional Record's report of this very debate
for a suggestion as to tho cause of his wasted
Influence, it was proposed to name the con
templated hospital after Senator Qalllnger of
New Hampshire a vcnorablo member of the
opposite sldo of the house largely becauso of
his long continued membership of the District
of Columbia committee and the fact that pro
fessionally ho Is a physician. To this proposal
Colorado's democratic senator persistently ob
Joctod. He could discover no good reason for
calling this the "Qalllnger hospital," neither
did ho offer any good reason for not so naming
it. His only excuso for opposing was that this
might establish an unfortunato precedent, a
banality as an objoctlon when there is no better
ono at hand, So If Senator Thomas is perplexed
to know why he Boems to havo little Influence
among his colleagues, possibly he may find that
his predilection for petty politics has something
to do with it,

HASTINGS, March H.-To the Editor
of The Beo; In a recent lssuo of The
Bee I notice that the secretary of tho No.
braska Manufacturers' association com
plains that the people of the state do not
glvo tho cigar factories a fair chance,
which la true, and I want to tell the rea
son why. It Is tho Jobbers' fault. If a
manufacturer calls on a Jobber and sayu
ho Is from Nebraska he will get a mighty
chilly reception. The Jobber lets the fel
low from the east in ahead of the home
fellow every time, and he will Instruct his
salesmen to push that class of cigars.
There is only one case that I know of In
the last thirty years that I have been In
this state that a Jobber gave a manufac
turer of Omaha a chance, and then
another Jobber came along and spoiled
that for tho manufacturer. 1 venture to
say that the Commercial club of Omaha
has but mighty few, If any, Omaha cigar
on salo In Its club rooms, and if thoro Is
a box or two they are probably stuck
away In some corner, for the club Is run
by Jobbers and they see to It that Nc-brnska-mado
cigars are given but mighty
We hope that more will take up this
matter and discuss It, so as to bring It
beforo the people of the state, and bring
tho Jobbers out of tho Idea of knocking
against Nebraska-made cigars, as it Is an
Industry that can be built up here as well
as In any other place on earth.
1 am a cigar manufacturer out In the
state, and venture to say there Is not a
Jobber In Omaha that would allow his
nalesmcn to take out a namplo of my
cigars and Instruct tho salesman to )pUBh
them, though I make the prices Just as
low as the eastern fellow.

of hard work and lots of It. A farm hand
would have to save at least four years,
work every month and not spend uny

save 11,00), and that would not buy tho
necessary machinery and horses to run

fixed at 40, after having spent a lTetlmu

thano are worked-out wrecks and are Just

The secret ot most "parlor magic" la rapid-motion.
That Is why the "trick photograph," although not
unknown before the days of tho "movies," has been
flourishing like a green bay-tree since the motion ot
tho lmac on tho screen gave It additional opportuni
ties to get In Its amusing work. We see dally In the
moving picture shows dozens of things that we know
did not happen, and could not happen; but how they
came to be so realistically portrayed passes the knowl
edge ot most of Us. Some of the secrets are betrayed
by the writer of an article In "Popular Klectrlclty.'
lie warns us that other secrets still are so carefully
guarded that nono may know them, so that no reader
need fear that nil Illusion will be stripped from the
picture play by his explanations:
"In a general way there are three methods of
obtaining Illusions by means ot the camera: First, by
periodically starting and stopping the camera In such
a way that certain acts are performed by the players
of tho objects being filmed, during the time that the
camera Is stopped; secondly, by reversing the routine
on certain portions of the film In relation to tho
remaining portions of the same film; and thirdly, by
making two or more superimposed Impressions on a
"To be sure, every film manufacturer has his own
peculiar methods of taking trick pictures, and almost
every director In the employ of every manufacturer,
but practically all of them depend primarily upon one
of the three methods mentioned above, or upon tho
uso of faked scenery and dummy figures.
"films In which toy animals, tiny Jointed dolls, or
animated cartoons are shown furnish the best exam
ples of the first class of trick work mentioned, for
In these views 'stop' pictures are used almost exclu
sively. Tools are made to perform their functions
npparcntly without human aid, and the toy animals
go through a regular circus performance, the position
of whatever tool or animal is used being changed a
fraction of an Inch while tho shutter of the camera
la closed, so that In the succeeding picture It Is
clearly observed to have moved. Combining a whole
scries of such views one obtains action of a most
"A film called 'The Magic Coffee Pot,' popular
some years ago, is an excellent example of the method
used, Cords or strings of infinite fineness were at
tached to the coffee pot, and a man with elaborate
carefulness moved tho pot a fraction of an Inch at
r time, a picture being token between cah minute
movement of tho Htrlngs. In tho finished picture tho
' maglo coffee pot appeared to raise Itself slowly from
an upright position on tho table and tip Itself over
the coffee cup. when a stream of coffee ran from
Its mouth into tho cup. Once the cup was filled the
pot slowly righted Itself and sank back Into its orig
inal position. Lumps of sugar then chased themselves
across tho table, climbed up the side of the coffee
cup and tumbled In. The sugar was operated In -similar
manner and each minute movement was
filmed, ono picture at a time.

"The method by which dummies aro substituted
for real players In some hair-raising sceneB Is prac
tically the rami', Tho players carry out the action
called for by the scenario until tho climax Is reached,
when tho dtrcctot calls 'Hold It!' a,nd all tho players
stand rigidly In pisltlon without moving a muscle.
Then a dummy, constructed to resemble exactly some
leading player. Is sulstlt,uted for the living man, and
when tho camera Is again started tho audience is
fooled Into thinking that It Is still looking at the llv
InB player. The dummy Is then thrown over tho cliff,
drops from a lofty height, or Is run over by an auto
mobile, and tho Instant the apparently tmpossime teat
Is accomplished the director again calls 'Hold It!' and
tho real player again takes his place In the picture,
arranging his body to correspond exactly with the
position of tho dummy. The camera is then started
again and the action proceeos as usual, though prob
ably three out of every four persons In the audience
are astonished at the death-defying deeds of the

their lives In their hands, or never perforin the feats
they aro supposed to accomplish In the pictures, for
almost every day one reads of some player being
reolly hurt while attempting some unusually hazard
ous piece of liustness.' But as a rule, when one sees
an apparently Impossible action on the screen It Is
pretty safe to assumo that you have been fooled by
a dummy, for so cleverly are these dummies cop

which the usual routine of things Is reversed Is best
Illustrated by tho films In which smoke floats down
a chimney, divers come flying out of the surf and
land on a dock, running backward out of the picture,
or objects leap from tho floor onto a table. This type
of picture Is usually made by either a reversing prank
on tho camera being used, or by turning the camera
upsldo down, though In some studios It Is accom
plished by a special printing machine, which feeds
the negative film In a direction opposite to that of
the posltlvo during the process of printing, so that
the relation of one portion of the film Is reverse!

New Tork Post: Though the senate

Chicago Inter Ocean: Mr.' Page, as
everybody knows, is an Intelligent anil
well-informed gentleman. It Is evident,
however, that ho has not given his mind
to a thorough analysis of the funda
mental dlfferenco between the British
and the American sense of humor. If he
had done so he would have known the
danger of so typical an American Joke
with a typical British audience as this
sentence In his speech at the Chamber
of Commerce dinner.

United States ambassador ut the court
of St. James, discontinued his speeches,
made as ho says, In a lighter vein. For
the second time they havo gotten him
Into trouble and one more lighter vein
speech would probably mean his recall.
In fact, he can count himself lucky If

result of the fool speech made by him

In the third type of trick picture superimposed
Impressions aro madu on the same strip of film, as
In tho so-called "ghost" or "vision" scones, In which
a character seats himself before a fireplace and
dreams of somo Incident In his past life. Such pic
tures are obtained, as a rule, by printing with two
negatives on a single strip of positive film:
"Two separate scenes are really taken by tho
camera, one being the large scene in which the char
acters are appearing when they see the ghost or
vision, and the other showing only the ghost or vision
itself. When the last scene Is printed against the dark
baokground ot the first scene, It appears on the screen
as a thin, vaporous impression that strongly suggests
the ordinary Idea of a 'ghost.' and owing to the fact
that the furniture or furnUhlngs of the room shown
in the first scene, or the outdoor background against
which it was taken, shows dimly through the outlines
of tho ghost, as It It were transparent. Is the Illusion
"Substitution of small scale models for the actual
subject has been followed in ordinary photography
and In tho making of post-cards, etc., for so long
that Its application to the motion picture need scarcely
"Here again It Is well to say that more and more
frequently the real thing Is being shown Instead of
the small scale substitute, for the film manufacturer
Is becoming a realist In every sense of the word."
