. .
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
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

11 our conviction
based on the facta
which we have 'published, and on proba
bilities ao strong ; aa to be soarcely dis
tinguishable from - facta, that the choice
of the republican convention for president
of the United States haa now been de
termined and that the nomination of Mr.
Taft haa been foreordained. 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. But
the tide la aettlng so strongly In Ms favor
that the natural process of accretion la
likely to Increase his majority beyond the
dimensions now clearly discernible.
The failure of Governor Hughes to
secure support outside his own state
has made It plain, even to his most en-
thusiastio admirers that bis candidacy
could not be pushed with any great
nromise of success at Chicago. 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. '
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
Omaha and Douglas county are to

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
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.
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

suaded to believe it, although Its news

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? '
