Still, It is a sort of travesty on railroad pro
fessions of their deep desire to serve the public,
that a city like Omaha should have to go up to
the highest court in the land to compel con-
utruction of a viaduct admittedly Heeded for the
protection of life and property.
The new School board will find that there Is
a lot of slack In Omaha's public school system
that can be taken up, but-that It cannot be
taken up without an outcry somewhere from
those affected. It will therefore depend-upon
tbe moral courage of the new board members
whether the job is done. or left undone.

The Viaduct Victory.
The decision of the United 8tates supreme
"court .upholding the right of the City of Omaha
to compel the Mlsaourt Pacific to erect a via
duct at its Dodge street croeelng is a notable
victory for the people. The strange thing about
It Is that a railroad shohld in this dsy question
snd combat the public's authority to require u
to make a safe thoroughfare over Its crossings.
So far as Omaha is concerned, the city
fought this question out years ago when it went
up to the supreme court in tbe matter of depot
viaducts, and won out unconditionally. Not
withstanding all this, Omaha has not been op
pressive or over-exacting on its railroads in de
manding viaduct construction except where ab
solutely needed to safeguard traffic. Every
railroad man knows that the grade crossing Is
a death trap, and that 1U continuance within
thickly populated areas Is by toleration only.
Tbe Dodge street viaduct has long been over
due; the growth of the city will likewise force
several others before long.
Aiwerinf Boll Call' aa Orer-Bated Anet
Drawing lessons from the results of the elec
tion Is a fine exercise of pomlletlcs. Mr. Bryan
Insists that the return ot congressman oicpuue
by an Increased majority to represent the Third
Nebraska district In the house is an endorse
ment of the choice of postmasters by direct
primary. But why should he stop there when
he has other pregnant examples as close, if not
Out in the Fifth Nebraska district. Congress
man Barton was oeaten noiwunsianainR
notable achievement of standing first in the Hat
of members who hsd missed answering to the
fewest roll calls, and Congressman Magulre In
the First Nebraska district, likewise defeated,
was but a little lower in tbe list of steady-at
tendance members. Is this popular verdict to
be taken aa meaning that the constituents at
home do not care a rap whether their congress
man stays In his seat and answers "Yes," or
'No," or "Present!' when his name is called in
stentorisn tones by the'fead'ng clork? Can It
be that they have no objection to their con
gressman absenting himself occasionally from
tbe floor when he has something to attend to
fdf 'them elsewhere? IS It possible they are
willing that he should make a sneak now and
then to "visit sick aunt" or attend a base ball
game, and to take a chance like a good sport
on being docked If caught by falling to answer
up? Must we conclude that responding to roU
call Is an over-rated asset.
Taking Stock of Our Army and Navy.
It Is most unfortunate that Congressman
Gardner should have attacked1 Oermany, or any
other belligerent, In urging the bouse to adopt
his resolution calling for an investigation of
our military resources, for as the president In
timates, undue Importance is sure to attach to
the stricture If the Investigation Is made. The
president further objects to the inventory on
the ground that "this is no time to .agitate the
question of our preparedness for war." Ex
pressing the hope which all Americans share
that our nation may play an Important part
in ending the present war, he and his advisers
are said to believe "suggestions for peace would
come with bad grace from a country In the
throes of a dlsouaeton of possible war."
Indeed, but even In view of the unfortunate
over-zealou championship of this resolution,
why should an Investigation of our military
powers bo construed to be agitation of possible
war? Has not the president approved Secre
tary Daniels' plan for an Investigation of our
-naval efficiency? .Why Is that any less objec
tionable or offensive than the proposed Inquiry
Into the efficiency of our land forces? With
the showing of a shortage of 18,000 men in the
navy, together with a paucity of line and tor
pedo officers. it certainly will not be argued
that, we should defer a complete Investigation
of navy conditions for fear of a wrong Imputa
tion of our motive. Though maintaining a com
paratively small navy, all agree that we have
not enough men to man it and corresponding'
deficiencies are said to exist in the army. While
no one wants to embarrass the president aa the
potential peacemaker, still it seems far-fetched
to ask us to waive our right to take stock any
time desired. Of course. If the president puts
I on the' ground that probing our military re
oirces will disclose no information not already
In hand, then the proposed checking up may be
needless, but In that case the reason should be
made so plain that It will not be misunderstood.
Tariff by Commission.
Much is' being made In certain quarters of a
resolution adopted by the Mississippi Valley
Trade conference at Memphis In favor of a loa
partisan tariff commission at the best medium
for the making of eur tariff laws. Business
men composing this conference were convinced
that this would work a great Improvement over
the old system of congressional tariff tinkering.
And perhaps it would at least, there Is much to
be said for the plan, just as there Is against the
present method, which invites and fosters fa
voritism and log-rolling.
But Is It not a little strange to Jump at a tariff
commission now aa if it were something new?
The fact is, but for petty politics on the rart.
too, of some notable self-proclaimed defenders
of tbe flag and savers of the country, we might
before thia have had a nonpartisan board with
a much more wholesome tariff law thau now
encumbers the statute books.' It is still fresh
ta mind that President Taft tried to urge this
very plan onto an unsympathetic congress. By
speech and message he iterated and reiterated
the wisdom and advantages aa he saw them in
the nonpartisan tariff board idea, denouncing
tariff revision "with blacksmith tools," or by
any other than a scientific .process. And he
later did his best at that time to put his ideas
Into action. But he found the country, at least
Its honorable representatives in congress, un
prepared for this forward step.
Our old system of omnibus tariff making Iw
the very thing that has thus far precluded the
scientific method. But with sufficient pressure
from such sources as the one represented at
Memphis the tariff board Idea may be pushed
through before long.
Short Ballot Talk
Collier's Weekly: We are told (and believe) that
Nebraska la a highly civilised stste. with a fine school
syetem, a great unlveratty, and all the reet of It,
and yet a friend sends a sample ballot (Novemlier 3.
1V pattern) from Omaha, and It measures eight fet
three Inches In length. He adda a note: ' Tour other
separata ehort ballots to be voted beeidca thU."
What's tha matter?
Nebraeka City Tress: The Omaha Bee and Tha
Treea aeem to be tha only newspapers In Nebraska
which are standing for a ehort ballet. And the oppo
sition which haa been aroused should not deteT The
TVe .The Prees occupies only a "me too" . position
from discussing tha situation sanely and Intelligently
aa haa been Ita wont fn the past The time will con.e.
as history haa always shown, thst men who "came
to scoff remained lo pray." Either the short ballot
will be adopted by Nebraska votara or something
equally aa good. Bo far the short ballot seems the
most likely reform.
Tekamah Herald: The clamor for a short ballot
makes, us wsry. Who are tha people who went the
short ballotT Iook up the origin ef the clamor and
you will find that It la the machine1 politicians who
manipulated caucusea and conventloaa, fellowa who
do not be I love the people know enough to elect their
own officers. FYom the reeults of tha recent elec
tion. It looks aa though tha people underatand the
long ballot and get what they wanted out of It.
Anyone who priees tha privilege of voting and
prompta him to go to the polls on election day la
not going to find It any task to go down tha line
of candidates and te mark his preference according to
hla Judgment aa to the beet men. It took only about
ten minutes to mark the last ballot, that la not muciv
time, when It occurs only once In two years. It le
far better that every cltiisen shall have choice In
selecting public officials on a long ballot, than to
have some clever politicians fix tha wires for the
appointment of all our minor officials by tha govern
or and a few high officials. If alt these appoint ree
would Join In continuing their appointive power in
office aa they would be sure to do. It would soon
build up a political machine worse thsn anything
ever known In the state. .It would put the taxpayer
of this stste at tbe mercy of tha fellows who depend
upon their psy 'checks.
Kesraey Hub: The Omaha' Bee declares itself in
"hearty sympathy" with the move to abolleh the
offlrea of state snd county superintendent as elective
offices, and making them appointive, as part of lis
plan for shortening the bsllnt. It" does' net give any1
other reason than merely that of shortening the bal
lot. The overworked voters of the state, who have
bren burdened' with tha responsibility and labor of
choosing their own public officials, will be almost en
tirely relieved when The Bee arrives with its political
Blair Pilot: ' The wsy to shorten the ballot la lo
shorten It.' It's elect a goverrior and let the gover
nor appoint most of the other state officers Just as
the president now does his cabinet. We ahould elect
the railway rjommlsaloner direct and the regents of tha
slats university should go on-the nonpartisan ballot
with the Judges. They should appoint a state super
Intendent of public Instruction, Just ss the school
boards hire city superintendents now. We should vote
1 direct on national and state senators and represents-
ttves, but that, would make a much shorter ballot.
Few of us ran become well enough acquainted with the
host of candidates for minor atata. offices to select
them intelligently, but we do know who we're voting
for tor governor and could trust him to appoint' as
good men for . treasurer, auditor, secretary of stst
attorney general, etc., ss he now does for tha Board
of Control, oil and food Inspector, etc. The oomlng
legislature ahould take - the necessary, steps to. give
us the short ballot as soon sa possible.
