-. The defeat of democrats by republicans in the
congressional base ball championship game adds
one more to the many incidents showing where
the presidential pennant is bound to land. , ;
It is apparent from the record that the mem
bers of the Federal Civil Service commission
must have done some lively side-stepping to es

There are no strings or mental reservations
to the public pledges of administrative reform
given by Charles E. Hughes. His record as gov
ernor of New York guarantees the fulfillment of
every promise. .- ' ' , , .'ft .;
' Congressman Reavis lends the Strength of per

The old "iron horse" is far outclassed by the
-modern "iron mule." The former' was useless
without a prepared track. The latter makes its
own track and plows it under. Thus does inven

- Another name is added to the list of ''deserv
ing democrats" gone wrong. The plight of Rapid
City's land register, accused-of past financial mis
deed In a municipal office, suggests the need of a
thorough search before jumping from a city to a
federal job. Safety, first.
- Postmaster General Burleson I too foxy a
politician to adopt for his department the Mc
Adoo rule forbidding Treasury department em
ployes participating in politic. Mr. Burleson
realises that postmasters are entitled to some
exercise for the money. . , "
Congressman Cyclone Davis of Texas rightly
visions the situation when he say the ship of
state is drifting toward the rocks in the Lone
1 Star state. The fact that half a thousand demo
crats in one Texas county organized a Hughe
club make fairly dear the cause of the gloom
in the Cyclone belt. '
Burleson Also in Spotlight
It was not alone in the State department, nor
in -the Department of Commerce, that Mr. Wil
son's cabinet officers sought places wherewith
to "reward deserving democrats." Every branch
of governmental administration was ransacked,
and out of this grows a charge that comes home
to the president himself. It is in connection with
the Postoffice department, and the record made
by Postmaster General Burleson. Normally, the
postmaster general has enormous patronage at
his disposal, but' apparently he didn't hive enough
to satisfy the demand of the hungry horde of
democrats, each of whom felt himself to be de
serving, at least to the extent of holding down
a government job. To meet this inordinate appe
tite of hi partisans, on May 7, 19U, two months
and three day after he had taken office, Mr. Wil-
on, by executive order, placed the fourth-class J
postmasters of the country on the competitive
basis. These offices, by executive orders of repub
lican prcsidenta, had been "covered in, which
means that the incumbents were made secure in
their positions without regard to competitive ex
amination. President Wilson overturned this, and
the democrats took full advantage of it.
How many iourth-class postmasters were
changed cannot be told without a complete ex
amination of the records, and this is denied. The
National Civil Service Reform league has made
request for permission to examine, the records,
that some idea might be had of how extensive
this raid on the classified service became. To this
request the Civil Service commission, through it
president, ha made reply that such an examina
tion cannot be made, because fact that might be
determined by the records would be used to "criti
cise- or embarrass the administration.
Therefore, the Burleson contribution to the
"reward of deserving democrats" will not be made
public at this time in its entirety., It is known
that the postmaster general went a far as he
could, and'with the full approval of the president,
Mediation Hopeful Sign. ;
Submission of the differences between the rail
road (brotherhoods and the railroad manager to
a board of mediation i a hopeful sign. jOn the
surface the action of the brotherhoods in de
clining to modify their demands by a single point
looks as if even mediation would be a failure,
and the president would be permitted to thrust
his federal arbitration board between the antago
nists. But look a little below the surface, and
the case does not appear so desperate. When the
parties to any dispute art willing to place their
case in the hand of t disinterested board for
inquiry aa to the merit on either side, the end
of the fight is pretty nearly in sight. No con
troversy ever arose in which kit the right was on
one side and all the wrong on the other, 'Be
tween any set of disputant there ia necessarily
a middle ground on which they can meet How
to find this balance is sometime not easy, but
it may be found if it is looked for in proper spirit
Wage disputes are better adjusted by conciliation,
by the give and take method than by any other
means. The mediators now at work on the rail
road wage scale should find way that will lead
to peace. . .
v "New Ideas" Are Worth While.
: Omaha's Commercial club, with the assistance
of the newspapers, has embarked on an enter
prise that ought to bring forth something of
merit. IP is a quest for new ideas, plans for
furthering the growth and development of the
city, along, all tines. Especial attention is to be
developed to the industrial nceda of the city, but
no suggestion that may. be beneficial in any way
ia to be ignored. .The time is also opportune,
for citizens are returning from visits" abroad, and
ought to come back with impression or experi
ence gained in other cities that might be of serv
ice here, If each of the returning pilgrim will
write out some one thing that attracted his notice
while visiting another town, and which he think
would be good for Omaht to adopt,, the Com-
mere'! club will toon find itself in possession of a
valuable collection of suggestions, out Of which a
definite program for improvement could be
worked. The game is open to everybody.

Our Mayor in Washington, ' '
When the mayor of a great city goes abroad,
he it the conscious embodiment of the dignity
and power, the importance and capacity of hi
bailiwick, and aa such he exceed in degree ordi
nary mortals, and at times even congressmen.
This fact waa impressively illustrated at Wash
ington, whither Mayor "Jim" sojourned after ful
filling his quest at New York. It was to "wise up"
the administration at to Omaha's qualifications aa
land bank location that our burgomeiater sought
out the secretary of treasury and the bank board
in conclave. ' Charles Otto Lobeck attended, that
he might see that the punctilio, of such occasion
was duly observed. Was heuieeded? About aa
much a, he it in congress. Wnen Omaha's mayor
came into the presence, the secretary of treasury
took one look at that shining dome, and rising
from hi seat, .exclaimed: "Hello. Jim!" And
"Jim," true to hi democratic instincts as welt as
his western affability, answered: "Hello, aecre.
taryl" Thus another great epoch wa safely
passed. Omaha may not get the land bank, but
it people can rest content in the comforting
knowledge that their mayor doesn t need a cice
rone in Washington. .
