Prealdent Clifford Thome et the Jowa Rail road commission, who la something of a re former himself, wanta to fight the confirmation of Louis D. Brandela for the aupreme bench.

Altogether too much smoke has emanated from this auto-fire-eqtiipment deal to allay the suspicions of the tax-paying publle that there is a Senegambtan In the wood-pile aomewhere. The impression la abroad that the prices made in Omaha by the different bidders are "loaded" for a "split" with some one whose In fluence Is to put the sale across by a pull or a divvy, while the tax-payera foot the bill. Thla ausplcion has not been lessened by the secret star-chamber session with the representative of one specially favored line of apparatua, nor by the further disclosure that each bidder haa been permitted to make hla own specifications with out stipulating minimum requirements of any kind. The city council will not get away from the smoke unless the decks are cleared and the busi ness done In the open, so aa to convince Omaha taxpayera that we are to pay no more than other citlea would have to pay, and that we get what we pay for. When Patriotism Obliterates Party. The scene in the house) of representatives when Speaker Clark came down from the chair to Join with Republican Floor Leader Man a In pushing the case for preparedness, was one that la inspiring for citizens of the United States, aad ought to be Instructive to the foreigner. , It ia most Impressive proof that Americana are united for the proper protect'on of the Institutions and their homes. Partisan strife may rage over In ternal matters, but when the question of defense of the nation la up, the only strife Is for first place In the country's service. 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 tion can become certainty. These are being re conciled, or are disappearing altogether, aa pa triotism obliterates party lines and brings all men together for the good of the country. It la worthy of note in passing that the only Important organised opposition to the work of preparing better means for defending our coun try cornea from a faction of the democratic party holding close allegiance to the late secretary of state. Turn About Only Pair Play. , Senator HItchcock'a personal organ, the World-Herald, embellishes Its front ps-ge with a striking portrait, captioned: Oerman-Araertran ftaya Ha ia Ashamed of the United Slates Ooorga Sylvester Vtarack, editor of Tha Fatherland, In New Tork, whoaa latter was one of thoaa found oa Captain von I'apen and published by London papers. Turn about la only fair play. Last Septem ber George Sylvester Viereck embellished the front page of his personal organ. The Father land, with a beautlfnl portrait of the senator. labeled: "Vol ted State Ueneter O. M. Hitchcock tha Fear- lass Defender of Humanity AseUiat tha Trafflo la Murder." To a perfectly neutral spectator It would seem that honors are easy. "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 shake-down Industry, promoted by the little bunch of crooked lawyers that disgrace the legal fraternity in Omaha, and who were made to' bunt their bolea the laat time we had a grand jury. If thla hold-up business geta too strong. radical measures may again have to be Invoked. Douglas county will receive nearly $40,000 as its slice of the latest state acbool apportion ment, the bulk of which belongs to the city. It might be interesting for the Commercial club watchmen to check up the actual receipts from the state against the Item carried in the School board'a estimates when the tax levy was made.

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. Shall Bryan be given a chance to do to Wll son what he did to Champ Clark?" asks the dem ocratic Lincoln Star. Well, we don't know whether he wanta the rhance, but we have aa Inkling that Mr. Bryan can go to 8t Louts aa delegate-at-large from Nebraska If he haa a mind to. To be perfectly candid, we think the demo crats of this state owe It to the nation to tend Mr. Bryan, otherwise the democratic convention is apt to be too tame to command front-page apace.

"Ticket buyers are told the Interstate Commerce commission won't let ue charge any less," and when tha commis sion's rulings fsvor the road. It never questions it. This is, in substance, the appeal of the Union 'Paciflo Railroad company, and Mr. Baslnger la making a big fusa over tt. But he falls to tell the patrons of his road why It Is that thla aame railroad hauls passengers from Sid ney to Denver, a distance of forty-five miles further, via Cheyenne, . through, three ststes, nsmely, Nebraska, Wyo ming and Colorado, and charges the same price that the Burlington does from Sid ney to Denver, namely, U.K. We alt know why and want tha magnanimous Mr. Baaslnger to tell his reason, provid ing ho can afford to miss that tl.ooo fine ha elaborates upon. His Nebraska-Jules-burg-Colorado rate has caused a great deal of Inconvenience to the traveling public, at the aame time depleting the receipts of the Sidney ticket office, as passengers buy their tickets on the train, from Sidney to Chappelt, thence to Brule or Big Springs and then on east, thus saving from K cents to fl.

S.-To the Editor of The Bea: As regards women smoking publicly st Omaha's leading hotel, "mostly dona by actresses and outsiders," was tha headline tn one (not yours) of the Omaha papers.

I belong to it and hold It In honor, and because I do honor It I cannot kelp resenting that any person of the female mn who happens to misbehave should always be termed "as an actress." Newspapers seem to have a fondness for this sort of thing. Com monly they call auch a parson "a pretty aotress." even though her connection with a theater may be less than that of chorus girl or cabaret singer. People who at tend dramatic performances must realties that any actress worthy of the name has reverence for her vocation; that It is her business, aa It la her gratification, to an- ear In plays which further the Ideals of moaesty and womanhood, and tha aoolal amenities. It Is this. Indeed, that makes it worth while to be an actress, and being no ahe will not forfeit the publlo'e good opinion by Indulging in doubtful decorum, n manners Ul nred or In tricks of smart- ess.

JAMES HALE. Saaltatloa Vtrasl Eismlsstloa. 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 know that soma of the highest-born ladies of our land do not trust Iceboxes, basements and attlce to servants to do with as they choose mostly don't choose. Rat-proofing, a husky squad with orders to thoroughly flush our streets and al leys; aa energetic use of the scrubbing brush and broom and ample use of thw whitewash brush would do more good towsrd doing away with disease In our town than medical examination In tha schools ever could, besides putting us In a better light before strangers visltng our city, who while enumerating our many good points seldom fall to speak of the dirty condition of the town and ask why it la that way.
