A Strong Presentation.
Former Secretary of State, Knox makes a
strong presentation of tho case against repeal
of the clause exempting Amorican coastwise
shipping from Panama canal tolls. Not only
does Mr. Knox apeak with as much authority
on the subject as can anyone, but he fortlfleF
himself from his own official experience and
communications in answer to Great Britain's
claims and protests under tho treaty.
Mr. Knox makes out clearly the sovereign
right of tho United States to protect and stlmu
lato its own shipping Interests, If it desires,
by remission of tolls, and thus to glvo our own
people benefits from the canol as returns on
their Investment and risk to which tho people
of other nations are not entitled. He shows,
further, that the uso of tho canal on tindlscrim
Inatlng terms by other nations Is made de
pendent upon their observance of such rules as
wo may prescribe, and there is no obligation to
bind our own shipping by tho same rules as that
of foreign nations.
The main point of It all is that Mr. Knox es
tablishes conclusive grounds for us to stand on
In contending that the tolls exemption clause In
vades no other nation's troaty rights. If that
bo conceded, or be conceded even to bo a con
troversial question, thon the pica of President
Wilson for repeal loses all its force, becauso the
only reason advanced by him is the Impairment
of prestlgo which wo would suffer abroad by
not living up to tho promise made In tho treaty.
The sole argument offered by him to Induce
democrats who had voted for tolls exemption to
reverse themselves, and in so doing to repudiate
the plank in the Baltlmoro platform explicitly
endorsing freo tolls, is tho necessity of living
up to the more sacred and moro binding promise
in tho troaty.
As we have more than onco said, pcoplo may
honestly differ as to tho policy of favoring our
own coastwise trade, but with tho pretense ol
tho troaty obligation removed, tho president has
no right to ask tho members of congress to slnt;
tholr own convictions on tho subject, and voto
to repeal a law which they themselves helped
to enact, and In whose wisdom they still believe.

Distrust of Legislature.
OMAHA, May 11. To the Editor of The
Bee; Your editorial on 'Distrust of Leg
islatures" Is useful because It Is Instruc
tive, but neither It nor the conclusions of
Governor O'Neal entirely disposes of the
topic. We are stilt aufferlng from the
swing of the pendulum that led the "con
stitutional fathers to separate as far as
possible the legislative and executive
functions of government. Their experi
ment of adding the Judiciary as the third
element of the governmental trilogy hAS
had the undesirable effect of establish
ing a sort of fetich worship, with the
courts as the object of popular adora
tion, or objurgation, as the course of
Judicature may square with public opin
ion or desires. This devotion to a fetich
establishes In the minds of the masses a
notion that remedial legislation Is always
efficacious, which notion. In Its turn.
leads to the conclusion, equally fallacious,
that all evils may be cured by legisla
tion, and this brings about the continual
experimentation by lawmakers.
I would add to the suggestion of Gov
ernor O'Neal that the executive bo com
bined with the legislative, and that the
Judicial be restricted to Its proper func
tion of administering the laws. And
when this has been accomplished I would
further suggest that a distinct effort be
made to clear the minds of all people of
the foolish Idea that evil of any or every
sort will vanish simply because prjhlbl-
tofy laws havo been pasred.

In 1795 or t94, he had received a mili

agnlnst Hidalgo and Morelos mentioned In
previous articles; attached himself to the
fortune of Yturblde, to whom he owed
his advancement to the offlfe Of brigadier

the overthrow of his benefactor, yet
both were rascals; and the misfortune of
either was the happiness of Mexico. Tho

An Explanation of How Official

The great variety of weather turned loose In this
country. In and put of season, keeps weather sharps
on the Jump to make their forecasts measure up with
results. How does the weather man do It? The ques
tion was put up to the chief of tho weather man In
Washington by the Brooklyn Eagle correspondent,
and the Department of Agriculture furnished the
Tho weather forecaster does not look out of the
window and guess. Ho Is not weatherwlse like the
old salt who scenM the approach of a storm without
knowing how. To the signs by which the orainary
citizen decides whether to take his umbrella with him
or leave It at home he pays no attention. Give him
Ills telegraph wires nnd he can make his predictions
as accurately In a wlndowless cellar aa on the top of
New York's highest skyscraper.
"Twice a clay, at 8 o'clock In the morning and 6
'clock In the evening, reports are telegraphed to
Washington from about 2W observers stationed In as
many different localities In the United States and
Canada. In these reports the observers do not voiun-
eer their personal opinions about what Is going to
happsn. They confine themselves to a Plain siaie-
ment of the actual conditions at that particular mo
ment, the pressure, or weight, of the atmosphere; the
temperature, the direction and velocity or tne wino,
the amount of rain since the last report, and so forth.
From this Information tho weather map of the United
States Is made up, showing the conditions that pre
vail In every part of the country. 8lnce there are two
maps for each day, It Is obvious that ny comparing
them a forecaster can keep track of the course and
progress of both storms nnd periods of clear weather.
From that, the next step Is to predict wnat son 01
weather will prevail for a day or two In any given
"This map Is the basis for all scientific weainer
forecasting, A glance at It will show mat 11 is
divided into 'high pressure areas' and low pressure
areas.' These are technical terms used to describe
the regions In which the weight or pressure of the
atmosphere Is great (high) or small (low). At sea
level, the baromoter, which is used to measure ths
weight, will register thirty inches under normal con
ditions of tho1 atmosphere. When It registers more than
this, sny 30.5 or 31. the pressure Is 'high;' when 23.5 01
less, 'low.' In this way the height of a column of
mercury In a barometer Indicates the weigm or tne
air, Just- as In a thermometer it Indicates tne tem
H peril of Storms.
"Low prebsure usually means strong winds, rain
and rising temperature; cool, clear weather. For a
reason to be explained later these 'highs' and 'lows,'
