No Exccie for Secret Siioni.
In representative government there Ii
rarely any valid eicuse (or secret sessions of a
public body. Public servants are an prosed to
represent their constituents, and their con
stltuents hare a right to know what they are
doing: as thetr agents.
We regret to observe that tha secret session
evil Instead of diminishing la growing hera In
Omaha, and that tha School board, neit to tha
Water board, seems to ba tha chief offender. Tha
legislature put Ita stamp of disapproval upon tha
secret session in tha water district law when it
included a prortslon that "all meetings of the
board, or any of Ita committees, or committees
of Ita employes, shall ba public." Notwithstand
ing the persistent and flagrant disregard of thla
requirement by tha Water board, the same, or
a simitar provision, anonid be maenea in ne
law governing city council. School board, county
board and other local governmental bodies act
ing in a representative capacity, and atrlctly
enforced upon all ofthem.
Aa a atarter, we'auggest that It Is high time
for some member of the School board with the
courage of his convictions, to propose and force
a vote upon a rule, making meetings of the board,
and of its committees, open at all timea to the

Shorter Auto Races and More of Them.
If auto races around a motor speedway are
to hold their popularity, the promoters will, In
our Judgment, have to do something to make
them more Interesting to the spectators. A 300-
mile race requiring three hours and a half of
contlnuoua driving, although with occasional
spurts to gain a lap every now and then, may
be a fine endurance test for the fabricators of
the machines and for tha makers of tirea, and
doubtleaa exhlbita the daring and skill of the
operator, but it does not save the monotony of
the game to those who are looking on.
Who ever heard of a hundred-mile, or even
a ten-mile horse race? The six-day bicycle racea
had their day, but quickly went by the board.
On the other hand, ahortenlng the auto racea,
and multiplying the number of them, would add
eat and excitement. It la not the contlnuoua
circling of the track, but the straining finish
that commanda aroused attention. Give the peo
ple a aeriea of real racing contests and they will
not insist on having the program last through
three hours and a half.

wrestlers thought it best to "look him over" be

How to Bon a Newspaper.
Mr. Bryan has given the world bis somewhat
interesting Ideaa on bow to run a newspaper.
As the owner of one of the finest little self-sup
porting monthlies in the country, and having
occupied for a few months a place aa a writer on
daily paper, Mr. Bryan ought to be able to
apeak by the card. Hla plea for the signed ar
ticle baa been very largely met by the dally
newspapers, whose columns every day preaent
matter more or less Informative with the an
nouncement that It la "By 8o-and-So." In aome
other waya Mr. Bryan'a requirements bave been
anticipated, and In aome they bave been paased.
The late secretary of state la not a pioneer
in formulating rules for achieving auceess In the
newspaper business. Others bave tackled, the
problem, both theoretically and practically, and
some of these had ideas as strong and clear as
Mr.' Bryan. Experience bas proven that a news
paper ia an Institution not amenable to fixed
natural laws. It la the product of many minds.
generally co-ordinated to a common purpoae,
but each Independent to a degree that ia some
times the despair as well aa the delight of the
head who la held responsible, i This condition
seems unavoidable, unlesa It ba on the one-man
weekly Mr. Bryan bas selected aa bis Ideal.
The politician baa always accused the news
paper not agreeing with blm of being venal, and
with tae uninformed the newspaper will always
bave to bear with this. The Impersonal quality
of modern American journalism Is Ita most Im
presaive attribute. Ita message cornea as from
a great, responsible and continuing Institution,
rather than from an Individual. Mr. Bryan'a
Insinuation that alnister Interests control all the
great newspapera Is unworthy of Its author. The
Influence of a newspaper, finally, depends on
Its message and the force with which it is pre
sented, and a self-respecting newspaper may al
ways be sure ot respect from others.

a genuine novelty In diplomatic procedure.

lawyer. She said ray palm waa one ot
tha moat Interesting aha had ever read.
While vlatting my only slater, in Oregon.
111., tha wife af Judge James H. Cart
wright, for soma twenty-eight yeara
Judge of the supreme court of Illinois, In
January, 191). aha read my palm. She
had become quite a noted palmist, hav
ing read palms from Europe to Japan. I
waa so much Impressed by her reading
that I resolved to become a master of
the art. If poeatble. Going tu Chicago
that month I purchased a copy ef
"Chelro's lauiguage of tha Hand." which
I have before me. I waa particularly im
pressed by what he said of "The Una of
Life." If it was of full length, it prom
ised a long life; If It were broken. It
meant death, aocording to the position af
tha break. The Una of Ufa starts from
the middle of tha base of the palm, and
enda midway between tha base of the
thumb and forefinger.
I determined to prove tha truth or fal
sity of thla "Ufa Una" idea. Ia Chicago.
Omaha and Sheridan, Wyo., I examined
the hands of a score of dead people men
and woman, cases of death from shoot
ing, railroad aorldents and aickness. In
but two of these did I find the line or
lrfe broken. All tha others were perfect
aad complete, promising a long Ufa, ac
cording ta Chelro and tha reat of tha
palmists. Having proved to my own sat
isfaction, and I believe ta that ef all
other Intelligent people, that there waa
ao truth or reason in the story of the
line of life, I believed I had a right ta
aay there was no truth In Hie reading
of any other lines. 1 believe I am the
eoly person who has ever mad tola Jay
vestlsatton and given It to the ruMIe In
tho columns of The Bee. I ask the read
ers of The Bee to make the same tests
I have and see If they will have any
faith tn the reeding of the palmists
after that Investigation.
