Most of the measures to be acted upon have already been the subject of very general discussion in congress and in the public press. Their enact- ment into legislation depends only on a willingness of members of the senate and house to make tho concessions necessary to get toegther. This wil lingness is steadily becoming apparent in the reorganized program for the session. This change of front on the part of congress is doubtless due to the con viction that President Roosevelt Is voicing public sentiment and that fail ure to act on his recommendations in good faith would be placed at the doors of members who must go before their constituents in the coming cam- paign and render account of their pub- lie services. Congress has been wont to pay little heed to the message of a president during his last year in office, particularly when he was not a candi date for re-election, but Mr. Roosevelt has broken another precedent in that respect. The president, in this case, represents very fairly the collective ideas of the country for the legislation he ha" urged- and tne PePIe nave tne last word OROWWQ STRKSQTH OF MR.

If nothing more than what seems to be already In sight should occur between this date and June 18 our belief is that Mr. Taft would enter the convention with a secure ma Jorlty of the delegate behind him and be nominated on the first ballot probably by not fewer than 120 votes out of 960.

The Tribune admits that this is so and joins in approving a growing sent! ment in New York for a renominatlon of Governor Hughes, even Intimating that the offer ot the nomination as vice president would' probably be re jected by the governor in order that he may respond to what he considers a higher obligation to serve his own people for another term 1n' the execu tive chair at Albany. ' RESULT OF Tlttt BOXD ELECTION. The result of the special election called to vote on the several proposl tlong to vote bonds for public lm provementa indicates that all these Propositions have received the neces- ary majorities to approve them. In the case of the paving and park bonds, for which a two-thirds vote is required, the affirmative votes are more than two to one. In the case of the court house, bonds, which re- Quire only a majority, the affirmative I votes are almost two to one, proving I tue sreat preponderance of public sen I timent in their favor. I The reasons why these bonds should be authorized were set forth before the election and seem to have appealed convincingly to the voters. Tha ling ot the bonds means that Omaha will continue to go forward in the work of public improvements, that the extension of its Daved stroct ro. win proceed, that the park approaches and I boulevards will be Improved and that the outgrown court house and jail will be replaced with a modern and more ultable and adequate structure. Sev eral difficult problems are still to be worked out in connection with the court house proposition, particularly that of providing jail facilities during the time that the new building la un- er construction. We may be confi dent, however, that all these difficul ties will be satisfactorily met In some way. Omaha and Douglas county are to be congratulated on the assurance of continued forward movement In street improvements and building operations. SENATOR BAILEY'S YJCTORT, United States Senator Joseph Wel- don Bailey of Texas will lead the dele gation ot his state to the national con vention at Denver, having won the dis tinction in one of the most bitterly contested primary election fights ever held. The vote at the primaries was really a test of democratic sentiment in Texas as to whether. Bailey should be continued in the service of the state at Washington. While his suc cess will naturally be considered by him as a vindication, the fact remains that he was chosen as a delegate by narrow margin, where he has here tofore been able to have practically the unanimous support of his party for any honor or position he desired. The opposition to Bailey has been growing ever since the legislative in vestigation which developed the fact that he had, close professional and personal relations with representatives ot the Standard Oil company, which was then fighting for its life in Texas. The charge was made that Senator Bailey received large amounts' of money from the Standard under the guise of retainers which represented pay for his political influence in secur ing the privilege for Standard to re engage in business in Texas. Senator Bailey contended that the money was in part a loan, which he repaid, and in part fees earned by legitimate pro fessional services. He insists that his position as United States senator does not bar him from earning all the money he can by the practice of his profession. On that question the Texas demo crats took issue with Bailey. They held that the ethics ot the case de manded that he should not, while serving in the United States senate, accept a fee from a company which was fighting his state in the courts. Senator Bailey admits that he has be come comparatively wealthy during his service In the United States senate, but insists that his official conscience has not troubled him about his service as attorney for the Standard, which was in litigation with both the state ot Texas and the United States. While the primary election . may . serve to satisfy Senator Bailey arid his follow ers, the public will be slow to restore him to the high esteem in which he was held as an able lawyer and party leader before his connection with the Oil trust was exploited. PARK BOARD "1IOW-DT-DO." Ihr the language of the classic mikado, the appointment of a new Park board for Omaha by the district court Judges promises us "a pretty how-dy-do." Not only have the Judges drawn on this musical masterpiece ot Gilbert & Sullivan in this way, but they have further complicated the bV uatlon "a la Buttercup" in the far- famed Pinafore by mixing up the terms of the three reappointed park commissioners so that only one of them succeeds himself. As the may or's appointee, "Pooh-Bah" Cornish will have to refuse to yield to his newly named successor, while as judi cial appointee "Pooh-Bah" Cornish will have to demand the . place formerly occupied by "Nanki-Pooh Mills, term expired. And in the mean time the flowers will bloom in the spring tra la. Seriously speaking, however, the Park board "How-dy-do" presents two-fold question of law by which it must be determined: First Can the legislature legally take away from - a ' community like Omaha the control of its purely local affairs, Involving the management of property orly, and invest it in the peo pie of a judicial district consisting of four counties in which Omaha need not have a preponderant voice? Secondly Can the legislature le gaily vest the Judiciary with the ap pointment of purely administrative officers, thus breaking down the com plete separation of judicial and execu tive departments ot government which the constitution makers thought they were firmly establishing? Whether one or the other of the two park boards has a valid claim to office will depend upon the answers which the supreme court gives to these two questions. Under the circum stances all contention and .turmoil should be suspended while the issue is promptly Joined and put up to the court with a request for the speediest possible determination. . The local democratic organ has re vamped the old and oft-exploded yarn about Omaha' being a recognized rest ing place for professional criminals making this their headquarters under police protection. This fairy tale has been repeated so often that some cred ulous people have actually been per suaded to believe it, although Its news paper sponsor do not believe it them selves. .

Metropolis Proooaored the I. a rarest "Jar" Tows In the neonblle. Teople living In "the provinces" who have noted certain phasea of life In the big city often remarked the close resemblance between the average resident and that class of rural Innocents known as Jays. An Intimation that such was the fact usually brings an oral expression of lofty disdain. But the New York World, evi dently weery of the pretense of superior ity, candidly admits the charge and claims tha prise- for the metropolis as the "Jayest of all Jay towns In the I'nltod 8tates." To prove the assertion tho World gives these details; It Is not necessary In order to furnish proof to direct attention to the fact that horse cars, abolished long ago In all towns with any pretension to be np-to-date, still are dawdling along New York's streets: that primitive sldepaddle wheel ferryboats still are used to convey thousands of persons to and from their places of business; that gas lamps, curiosi ties In all modern communities, still shed the light obtainable In many thoroughfares, or that the clty'a streets are in so dis graceful a condition that small municipali ties would .blush . If like conditions pre vailed within their borders. It la not because of these material con ditions that New York Is declared to be In the lead in "Jaynrss," but because Its inhabitants act like "rubes" In their dally walks about the city. , There Is no. town In the United Statns where a crowd can be collected for so lit tle cause as right here In New York. Whether residents of this city are or are not endowed with more than the average curiosity, whether they have more leisure time-or whether they are abnormally of Inquiring minds matters not. The fact re mains that at tho busiest hours and In the most crowded thoroughfares hundreds will assemble at the slightest provocation in fact, at no provocation at all. Let a trol ley car blow out a fuse on crowded lower Broadway, Park Row or any downtown thoroughfare between It) a. m. and 4 p. m., or on upper Broadway, Sixth avenue or any other uptown street between 6 p. m. and midnight, and thousands will assemble and stand to watch and suggest how the trouble can be remedied. Let a horso fall Into an excavation, and thousands of persons will waBte their time watching tho progress of the work of get ting out the animal. A few days ago scarlet stains were dis covered In front of a Park Row build ing. Two or three men stopped, and soon there was a crowd of thousands. Pedes trian traffic was stopped and street cars were blocked until police reserves scat tered the "yap" watchers. Had a murder been committed? Had some one had a hemorrhage? Had a window cleaner fallen from some high story when performing his work? These and a score of other ques tions were discussed by the gaping multi tude. Even when it waa discovered that the stains were of paint spilled from a workman's pall when he was Jostled, those who had not been driven sway by tha po lice continued wagging their heads and dis cussing their theories. The same day the pavement on Broad way, near St. Paul's church, was discov ered to have a big rift in It. Thousands assembled. Again street travel was blocked, and again cars were held up. The police ones more scattered the crowd. Some said an earthquake had caused tha big hole. Others contended the earth waa sinking. and not even the official declaration that tho rift was due to the escape of gaa suf ficiently satisfied the gating "rubes" to cause them to disperse. , During the recent strike of telegraphers a bulletin was posted in front of a coffec and cake saloon on Park Row about noon each day. No sooner did half a dosen stop to read It than hundreds also halted. Not one In fifty could see the little board, but they stood and stood as If they ex pected the diminutive bulletin told of some event of greatest importance. A woman fell the other night at the Brooklyn bridge entrance when trying to board a surface car. She was not seriously hurt. Although the police took her to waiting room in less than a minute after the fall a crowd of hundreda hovered round the entrance for half an hour trying to find out what had happened. A window cleaner was washing the win dows of one of the top stories of the Tract Society's building the other day. Two men stopped to look at him. They had hardly began to gaze heavenward before at least GOO "yaps" were doing the same thing. It is safe to assert that if a man dropped a pin on lower Broadway and started to search for it at a time when that thorough fare wds at its busiest, he would receive the assistance of scores who would not even know what the was looking for. It is also safe to assert that If the man quickly found the pin and sneaked away the crowd would remain for many minutes. One would expect that New York, busy, rushing, restless as it Is, would have no time to show this "Jay" spirit. Perhaps it could have been excused in the seventies, when It had such practical Jokera aa the late William Florence, actor, and William Travers, broker. Tha former had the laugh on the town one day when he caused the announcement to be made that a man would walk the tight rope from Trinity church steeple to Nassau street. The lm mense crowd that had assembled waited for more than an hour before It came to the conclusion that it had been hoaxed. Mr. Travers once blocked Wall atreet by standing and pointing down that thorough fare. Whtn hundreda had assembled in re sponse to his pointed finger, he said, with his habitual stammer: "S-s-ee J-J-ay O-gould w-w-ith his h-hands in hla own p-p-pockets!" and dis appeared while the crowd still gaped. Isn't It true that, after all. New York is the banner "Jay" town? ' Reactionaries Coanted Oat. Kansas City Star. In the political gamo now in progress the reactionary . organisation will aoom be counted out.

POLITICAL IVOTKS. Andrew Carnegie, It Is said, has Inter ested himself In the Esperanto language, and has devoted considerable attention to Its study. Henry S. Gere, editor ot the Hampshire (Mass.) Gazette, is the oldest editor In Massachusetts. He recently celebrated his 80th birthday. He has boon In the news paper business since 1845. Raisull resembles the late Jesse James In that he affords the world many op portunities to sing his requiem and enjoys prodigiously the pleasure of reading his obituary now and then. Edmund Robblns, a London newspaper man, has celebrated his Journalistic Jubilee, having begun work on the Launccston Weekly News on April 4, 1858. He pre- pared the first press telegram accepted by the postoffice when Great Britain com menced operating the telegraphs, on Feb ruary 6. 1370. . Grand Councillor Yuan-Shi-Kal of China haa begun tho publication of a national newspaper In Peking. It Is called Chinese Public Opinion and is published in Eng lish. This new enterprise is part of tho general movement to express In the press the feeling of China with regard to Its internitlonal situation. The most striking political sinecure in England is the property of the marquis of Cholmondeley, lord great chamberlain to his majesty. King Edward. Only on two occasions does he have to don the robes of office, when Parliament opens and on those rare occasion when there Is a cor onation. And his salary Is $22,500 a year. When the king starts the legislative mill the lord great chamberlain Is master of ceremonies. At coronations he Is the most dignified, gorgeous and glorified of all the titled flunkeys that dance attendance upon the sovereign.
