The debate la the house ia clearing the way
for the adoption of a definite program. When
thla Is completed it will be urged with all be
coming haste. Quibbles of various kinds, and
some real differences of opinion aa to the better
way to proceed must be disposed of before ac

"Lowbrows'' and "Highbrows" Defined.
Chancellor David Starr Jordan of Lei and
Stanford University, talking to the undergradu
ates, gives a definition of "lowbrow" and "high
brow" for the uses of that school. He saws the
one Is too practical, and the other ia not prac
tical enough. Thla leaves something to be de
sired, for it would perhapa be useful if the
learned doctor had even approximately aet the
limit of "practicality" on which he would dif
ferentiate between the several gradea of Intel
lect. By inference, we conclude the deeitable in
dividual of medium-brow elevation comes aome
where between the two claaaea dealgnated, but
we are left groping aa to where to draw the
line. Very likely Pr. Jordan himself realises
the difficulty, and doesn't care to particularise
too closely. Aa the whole matter ia finally one
for personal determination, the old rule for se
lection win continue to rule. A "lowbrow" is
the fellow who laugha at our pretenalona to
learning, and the "highbrow" la the fellow we
laugh at. Too many of each kind are found In
the world.
Signs are multiplying of revival or the

Settling Blockade Question.
The auggeatlon by the Manchester Ouardtan
that Viscount Bryce or Arthur J. Balfour be sent
to the United States with full power to nego
tiate for Great Brlta'n la the settlement of the
Issues that have arisen from the blockade con
troversy deserves attention. The Guardian
warns the British that tht blockade question la
being pursued by the United States with quite
aa much vigor aa ia the Lualtanta matter, and
that nothing sort of complete recognition of neu
tral rights will avail for settlement. This Is ex
actly the point of view that Sir Edward Grey
haa failed to take; hla sotea In response to pro
tests from our government having been incon
clusive when not positively evssie. and full of
discussion of all but the issues Involved. What he
hopes to gain by prolonging the Interchange of
correspondence is not apparent. Prompt settle
ment of the matter can easily be put out of the
way by England'a taking advantage of the Bryan
arbitration treaty, which will carry the contro
versy to an International court, a tribunal at
present all but impossible. A special envoy, with
power to treat, could eaaily bring about an un
derstanding la a short time, and place the rela
tione of the two governmenta on a much more
cordial footing than now.
Pointing Toward Hughes
chrlatlaa etaaoe Koaito. " "
THROUGH acknowledft-nd leadera of tha progres
siva party It has bea announced (1) that no
"reactionary" ticket nominated by tha repub
lican convention, at Chicago In Juna, would be ac
ceptabte to those who rebelled agaJnst the republican
ticket of 1911, and who era still acting independently
of their old political affiliations, and t3 that tl.
nomination of Theodora Itoosevelt or Charles Evans
Hughes, by tha republican party, would bring them
back to tha fold. Nobody la qualified, or authorised,
to speak authoritatively for the republican party In
this connection, and nobody of prominence hss un
dertaken to do so, but many whose opinions hava
weight In the counsels of that orgnntsatlon hava
commented on what may be regarded aa a pro
gressive peace propoeal.
At tha close of tha campaign of four years ago. a
proposition Involving reconciliation with tha Roosevelt
element would hava been spurned by republicans It Is
no sxagrersXlon to say that as late aa two years ago
an attempt, on tha part of the progressives, to lsy
down terms or agreement to tha regular organise Hon
would have met with a chilling reception. Imocratlo
triumphs, however, dua to republican division, and tha
eartalnty that these triumphs will be continued un
less tha breach la cloaad, have brought tho leaders in
both factions to modify their views. Tha remarkable)
thing about tha progressive proposal of Roosevelt
leadership. In Iris, was not Its failure to arouse en
thusiasm In tha recular ranks, but tha calmness and
the serlousneaa with which It has been considered
by Ota atandpat element. Tbla consideration seems to
have resulted In two conclusions oa the republican
side. First, that even Theodore Roosevelt would te
preferable to Wood Vow Wilson; second, that If pary
unity can be re-astabllshed through acceptance of
tho proaresshro alternative, tha thing to do la to
nominate Charles Evans Hughes, whoaa candidacy,
while acceptable to tha great body of progressives,
would offend ao oonalderable number of republicans.
The chairman of tha republican national committee,
Charles D. Illllea, can only give expression to his
personal views on tha matter under discussion, but
hla personal vlewa hava extraordinary weight by rea
son of hla official position, aad the careful atudent of
tho situation la, wo think, justified In attaching sig
nificance to some of hla recent utterances In Chicago.
Doubtless, be reflects the conservative opinion of
the national committee when, instead of haughtily
declaring that Theodore Roosevelt would not do,
ha skillfully shifts responsibility for the elimination
of that distinguished cltisen. "All tha information I
have on the subieot, he la represented te have told
tha report ra, "Is to the effect that Colonel Roosevelt
la not a candidate flor the republican nomination for
president. Ha haa declined to permit his name to
go on the primary ballot in tha only three statea
from which Invitations have come, Minnesota, Ne
braska and Michigan." Then Mr. Illllea, having
crossed this ditch gracefully, proceeds to shift soma
more responsibility. "In tho statement Issued by
Chairman Perkins of the progressiva executive com
mittee." he adda, "tt was made plain that any rea
sonable, satisfactory man would be acceptable as the
republican nominee. They Insisted that they meant
just whst they said, and we will take tha statement
at Its face value. I think wa shall be able to nomi
nate a man who will be satisfactory to all elementa
ef the party, and that ear candidate will be elected."
The interesting question, ef course, is Who la thla
snaaT Ia attempting to find a satisfactory answer,
the moat we can do la te weigh Indications, mess are
tendencies and draw inferences, in thla respect
Chairman Hlllae will be helpful to us again. He turns
promptly, and, tt would seam, naturally and willingly,
from Colonel Roosevelt to the second choice of the
progressives. "In regard to Juatlce Hughes." he says,
"there la ao man big enough to refuse the presidency,
In my opinion." Evidently, Mr. illllea and hla asso
ciates are undisturbed as to what Justice Hughes
would do If the Chicago nomination were offered
him la the right way. And it ts fully as evident,
judging from the general tone of remark and com
ment, that, among the thousands whd are hoping to
see him the standard bearer of a reunited republican
party, the conviction la firm that Charles Evans
Hughes la too Mg a man te refus to lay aside Ms
personal wishes or "to sacrifice bis personal comfort
la the interest of what aa Important element among
hla fellow cltlsena conceive to be the country's good.

company, and Mr. Baslnger la making a

patrons of his road why It Is that thla
aame railroad hauls passengers from Sid

miles further, via Cheyenne, . through,

price that the Burlington does from Sid

OMAHA. Feb. . To tha Editor of The
iBee: As a cltisen I should like to ex
press my opinion In regard to the epi
demics In our city, medical examination
In our schools, sanitation, eto. Several
Items have appeared In the papers which,
upon careful consideration make It plain
that the tail la trying to wag the dog.
In other words, some of the elty officials
have forgotten where their salaries come
from: that they are earvants of the peo
ple and not their masters. Why Is ao
much being said and done at thla time
In regard to examining the children of
tha publlo schools and so little said and
done about general sanitation. (Tha lack
of sanitation being the real rauaa of the
trouble.) Under existing circumstances
tt Is to be doubted If school examination
does any good; In fact, it is tha belief
of maiiy that It tsnds to spread disease
rather than lessen It.
I know what I am talking about when
I aay Omaha haa what many of the con
gealed cities of the east haa not, an open
city with plenty of Ood'a sunshine, broad
streets, through which sweeps the fresh,
elean air of tha prairie and if the sanita
tion inside was properly looked after it
should be a long time. If ever, that med
ical examination In our city would be
necessary. There ia no law la Nebraska
authorising medical examination in
schools, much less any law that caa
force parents to keep their children out
for net submitting to this unlawful ex
emtnatloa. and the school board aad Su
perintendent Graff are exceeding their
authority la making any such Innovation
In the schools. Bin oa there la ao author
isation In Nebraska for medical oxam
Inatlon In the schools, thee there are na
funds available that can be legitimately
used for this purpose.
Aa to sanitation, tha health cojnmia
doner surely has authority to look after
the sanitation la Omaha. There are alleys
downtown that hava actually been known
to aond people home sick after a fe
whtrfa from them. Collectors of empty
cans are se long getting around that
people have barrels full before they am
emptied and cltlsena are forced all the
time to bury them to get rid of the odor.
There are eld buildings here standing
asperate and together that are Infested
with rata and soma of them are not such
bad looking buildings from the outs Ida,
either. Buildings fifteen years old or
older need watching In this regard. Then
there are stores and meat markets, Judg
ing from the odors coming outside must
hava something wrong Inside,
Pome of the ladles of Omaha ahould

Rat-proofing, a husky squad with orders

brush and broom and ample use of thw

towsrd doing away with disease In our
town than medical examination In tha
