The Merchant Marine league, at a dinner held in Washington, decided to have a ship subsidy bill introduced at the present extra session of con- i.t.,t. i. K nmUH at ttin ieni n un w aa iv w " - i regular session In December. While President Taft was present at the banquet and made a speech In farof cf rehabilitating the American mer chwt m.rl.., he did not commit blm - . to the subsidy feature. The Talue 0r even the necessity of a strong merchant marine Is not questioned and the republican national platform declared In favor of Its encouragement, but neither this declaration nor Mr. Tsft's speech can be construed Into an endorsement of Immediate subsidy, legislation. Outside of any basic opposition to the subsidy principle there are seri ous objections to its projection at this time. The treasury Is confronted with a deficit, and until me new tanix qui . . . - . . a . .. faa Vlll has been In operation for some time It will be uncertain whether It will Droduce revenue sufficient to meet governmental needs already existing. ship subsidies right away would be premature. It would ne particularly difficult to-convert congress to the subsidy view at a time when It Is be ing freely asserted by shipowners all over the world, that ocean-going shtp- ping has been overbuilt. Whether true or untrue, It is bound to have its influence, but the treasury situation is the unanswerable argument. Automobile Accident Insurance. Iowa's state auditor has refused to license a company-to insure automo bile owners against damage claims on the ground that such Insurance is con trary to public policy In its tendency . - - 1AB. aafii1 T f triA io uie ui i, ci a ice, - premise or tne owa ruung is corrwi, the conclusion is unassailable, but the operation of similar insurance in other fields challenges the correctness of this view. Every large Industrial concern and practically every large , contractor takes out Indemnity Insurance for the same reason that Are insurance is car ried to distribute the risk. ; Such in surance not only does this, but it puts an Interested guard over the insured. Companies find it more profitable to insist that the insured take all neces- sary precautions than to make rates that prudentv employers will not pay. Failure to use reasonable safeguards .ninat av-Mnt brines a cancellation of the doIIct. No sanely .conducted insurance company would carry a risk for an automoblllst who was conttnu- LUy ln trouble for scorching and reck- - V less driving. There is no sentiment about the in- surance business and the companies may be relied upon to look out for their own Interests, and so far as they reduce the risk in doing so they will be protecting the public.

This point tne arbitrators have correctly refused to consider. The right of either white or nerro firemen to work Is v above auestton and the policy or employing either one or both is for the parties to the employment to neclde.

According to reliable reports the anaemio condition of the democratic party resulted in a consultation of the party doctors not long ago ln New York. The meotlng was held quietly to avoid exciting the patient. There were present Alton B. Parker. Martin W. Littleton, Edward M. Shepard, John 0. Carlisle, Charlea 8. Fairchild and others whose experience was ral ued and in addition words of advice came by mall from several members of the Cleveland cabinets, Senator Cul berson and others. Just what course of treatment the political doctors pre- scribed is not given out, but it is erl- dnt tb favored change In both medicine ana pnysician-m-cnier. Te an ontsldW it is not clear Just what the democratic 'medicine mixers can do that wilt be effective. If they amputate the Bryan leg of the party it would be a great handicap and the pa- tlent might not survive the shock. In a three-legged race tied up with pop- ullam the party stumbled and fell be- fore- reaching the tape and, Judge Parker demonstrated that be was un able- to go the presidential Marathon distance. Thetruth is. the patient. through the experimenting of so many political doctors has been so thoroughly impregnated with the free silver, free trade and other species of political bacilli that it is doubtful whether it Can rally sufficiently to make a creditable showing in the pres- Identlal race, but on the strength of I previous form can probably secure someone willing to psy Its entrance fee. . The most sensible advice would be to keep out of the main event anfl let President Taft run a bya in lilt and save poor old democracy for rlty i . i . - . . j ""u cuuoir races. woer m um la neither so long nor so hard.; ' Safe and 8ane. Last year Omaha came out of the annual Fourth of July celebration with a creditable record of freedom from serious casualties. Because we escaped last Fourth without paying an excessive penalty Is, however, no assurance that we will maintain that record unless every rea sonable precaution Is taken against the reckless use of explosives and the careless handling of fireworks. The warning given by Mayor Dahl- man and the rules he lays down for the enforcement by the police will, If heeded, go a long ways toward reduc ing the Fourth of .July risk, but It must be remembered that no preven tives can he self-acting and that the co-operation of every member of the community Is needed to repress care- jes-ness and suppress foolishness It happens that this year the Fourth of July falls on Sunday which will rt taken to mean a license to celebrate it on the day before and the day after, as well as on the day itself. Knowing what havoc one twenty-four hours of the Fourth can produce, it goes with out saying, that extending the noisy ebullition of patriotism over a period of three days instead of one multiplies the dangers and threatens to Increase the penalties proportionately. Under these conditions we should all make special effort to keep within the line of what Is safe and sane, and by doing bo we will be giving further proof of our patriotism. Wonder if some 'people remember bow the World-Herald about a year ago Joined in the loud denunciation of Mr. Taft for referring in his eulogy of General Grant to Grant's great achievement In lifting himself out of his own demoralizing habits prelim inary to the demonstration of his great military genius. According to the opposition press'at that time, Mr. Taft had committeed an unpardonable offense and had violated all the pro prieties. But here comes this same World-Herald dwelling on and em phasizing 'a similar episode in the career of a well known public man, not dead like Grant with his name and lau" maae' DUl BUU ,mn r,nt nere ,B our own community. If Mr. Taft WM lo, De criticised for referring to General Grant as overcoming his ad- diction ta drink, how about the news- PaP" advertisement of a friend and neighbor as "being unable to control bs appetite for drink" and in conse quent losing his fortune and profes sional practice." Are the proprieties reserved only for the partisan opposi tion t If the banks joining ln the test of the guaranty deposit law are contrlbut ing to the expense fund at the. rate of 1 per one thousand dollars of their capital it is easy enough to figure t Just how much they are flaying ana anyone with a bank directory "no a pencu can mane the computa tlon. Perhaps the only reason why tne Dankers do not care to advertise how much they have raised is that their lawyers have been retained on a part contingent and might want to raise the ante. wronRo no not mane one ngnt. oecause tne late aemo-pop legislature undertook to destroy the efficiency of the city engineer's department by re- quiring all employes to be confirmed by the council, and making them sub feet ta diamines! hv thai om,n.it i.

Xt was heard a good deal lately when Harvard had a choice to make. There la a suspicion abroad that "the west" Is a good place to raise men; that th physical and mental conditions are favorable out there for growing folks; that the spirit of the west s wholesome, lta air Inspiring, and Its educational apparatus easily adequate to give to energetic minds the necessary tools to work with.

That Is a wondeful nursery of human life that stretches from tha Alleghanies to tha Rockies, abounding in space and nourish ment for body, mind and soul. There are coming out of that great nursery great children, whose thoughts and discoveries and deeda will do for human life, wher ever it exists, greater, far greater, services than any prophet dare predict. MODESTY OK Gil EATXESS. American Aviators Are Mea of FeW Words. Washington Post. Orvllle and Wilbur. Wright arc nrovlng themselves unusual men In other re -cts than ln tha building of airships. In the ccomplishment of their great purpose of navigating the air they, have shown them selves men of ability, courage and of such determination as fags ln tha face of no difficulty. In the reception of the treat honors that have been thrust upon them by tha people of two continents, Includln sucn personages aa kings and presidents, they have shown themselves possessed of no less sterling qualities than those which went toward making the original success. And with It all the native simplicity of the men has not changed ln the least. At the end of the flrat of the two days' cele bration that has Just been brought to an end ln their home town, each rose in an swer to tha eulogies that had been heaped upon them and answered simply, "Thank you, gentlemen." Then Wilbur turned to Orvllle and said: "Let's hurry home; you know we have to get up early." These things are tho simplicity' of true worth. Yet there have developed few In dlvlduals in the memory of man who have not allowed tha plaudits of the multitude, when these came, to divert them from thel tasks. The record Is full of the tragedy of the newly-great mind that has been wrecked on the rocks of popularity. Par tlcularly Is this true where fame has come quickly and out of entire obscurity, as In this case. ' ' At tho end of the second day's demon stratlon ln Dayton Wilbur Wright brok silence and spoke modestly, briefly, but withal ha aald something that was worth printing, something that showed no less than what had gone before the sanguine simplicity of the man. Likewise his coup ling of the Inventor and the poet threw pleasing sidelight on the manner In which these men look upon their own acconv plishments. - "Poets sometimes have reason to com plain," he said, "of their lack of substan tlal sympathy, yet I have no doubt that If (1,000000 would bring another Shakespeare or Tennyson the money would be forth coming In this country within five minutes If poets and Inventors do not get their due It Is rather because the world Is unaware of their needs than because of Indifference I wish our work was eommeniurate wit the honors thai have been heaped upon us Thank you."

The proposed amendment to the constitu tion authorlilng the levying of an Income ax, which Is under consideration In con- ectlon with the tariff bill and corporation tax, culls attention to the fact that twenty seven states have formally petitioned con gress to convene a constitutional conven- lon for the purpose of changing the method of electing T'nlted States senators. If four mora states, or two-thirds of sjll. shall ask for such a convention, It must he called, as required by article v of the co,n- tltutlon. The twenty-soven states whlcn ava gone on record In favor of a con vention are aa follows: Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Indlai.v Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky. Louisiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraskn, Nevada, North Caro lina. Oklahoma. Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming. 'The legislatures of all of these states," says the Brooklyn Eagle correspondent. have passed resolution!: recommending a change In the presnt methods of electing nlted States senators and dertiandlng thnt the constitution be so amended aa to heteu? about the selecting of these officials bv flrect vote. The twenty-seven resolutions are now neatly filed away In the office of the secretary of the sensto. Charles O. Bennett. Of course. It goes without say ing this Is something which none of the members of the Taft administration wish. They realize that there are untold dangers lurking In suggestions to tinker with the constitution by an assembly called to gether for that purpose. Nobody would be able to say what the constitution would look like if amended along the lines advo cated by the radical politicians of some of the middle western and far western states. It ln safe to say that the Taft administra tion will make no move In the way of encouraging four of the states not Included In the foregoing list to fall In line." A few minutes before li o'clock noon every day In the year a young man walks 'nto'a certain room of the main building at the Naval observatory, which Is set up on hill In the northwestern part of the Dis trict of Columbia. He glances at the vari ous clocks ln the room and then goes over to a table which Is covered with electric apparatus. He watches the clocks to his left closely and walta for the hands to reach five minutes of 12. As the -second hand ap proachea the 60 on the dial he prepares to shift a snitch.- The clock Is so finely ad Justed that when the seond hand points to 60 It exactly marks the beginning of a new minute. As It touches the 00 the switches are thrown on. That starts a signal that goes out Instantaneously over 900,000 miles of telegraph lines. In Washington, New Tork, Buffalo, Cleveland, Newport, Baltimore, Newport News, Norfolk. Savannah, New Orleans, Key West, Galveston, Chicago nd elsewhere the time balls go up on their poles. People know that It Is five minutes before noon, Washington time The clock which keeps the time In the observatory ticks on. With each tick there Is a contact of electric points. A circuit Is closed and an Instrument on the table similar In appearance to a telegraph Bounder ticks away loudly. It goes on to tha twenty-ninth second then skips one tick, then resumes lta steady Sounding until the last five seconds, then there la another gap." These gaps are for tha purpose of giving listeners at other ends of the great system of wires a chance to know what part of the minute the clock Is on. So It goes up to the last minute. At the twenty-ninth second there la again the skipping of one second. Finally the clock gets around to the fiftieth second, Then the circuit remains open for ten sec onds. There Is silence all along tha tele. graph wires. At the other ends, where there are time balls or merely train operators, the long pause Indicates that noon la almost there. The second hand makes on toward SO and finally reaches tha mark. Then there Is another click, ln about a second the sounder la down and that tells hundreds of thou sands of people that It la noon In Washing ton. that the Naval observatory says so, and that the Naval observatory Is now one of the best time keeping institutions ln the United States. , Uncle Steve Elklns, United States sen. ator from Weat Virginia, la classed by the Chicago Record-Herald correspondent aa one of the most likeable plutocrats to be found ln a- week's Journey. There Isn't particle of guile ln hla make-up. While other representatives of "Interests," male factors of great wealth and bloated bond holders, may Indulge In subterfuge, high sounding argument and all the other things resorted to for concealment of the basic opposition of certain progressiva policies, tha Jovial senator from West Virginia seeks no disguise for hla Innermost feel ings and reasons for a course of action, He's as Ingenuous as a prattling babe. Several times ln tha course of the tariff debate ha has emphasised his willingness to vote all tha protection anybody elae wants If they only do the aama thing for West Virginia products, and he doean't see why the miner should not get millions more for his coal If tha western farmer Is to be protected on his potatoes. His blunt ness, among other . qualities, endears him even to those who oppose him and his policies. There were several progressives In group discussing Income taxation when Uncle Steve's beaming countenance ap peared and its proprietor caught tha drift of the conversation. "Now, sea here," said Senator Elklns, "I'd be for an income tax, but darn It all, I don't want to show up how much I've got." Philip Walters, fairly well dressed and with an assurance born of former rest dence In New York, Philadelphia, Boston and the world at large stood before Judge Kimball In police court In Washington.

Wall Street Journal. At least we have a man ln the White House who does not believe than an In crease In the functions of government must necessarily Involve a progressive In crease ln the amount of expenditure. Our federal government Is a large scale industry; the ' law of Industrial develop ment Is, that as the scale increases the eoonjmlcs of consolidation and co-ordina tion should be such as to reduce the cost of the unit of output. In this line lies the possibility of reducing the government's prospective deficit by cutting down ex penses and so combining and co-ordinating aa to get a good deal more work done with out expanding expenditures. It is a patent fact of federal administra tion that there Is a large proportion of absolutely unnecessary correspondence, of useless employment of men and women. Of waste of material and machinery. In the effort to perpetuate features and func tions of administration which have long since ceased to render any public good. These are directions In which the tax payers of .the country will appreciate honest efforts to deal with deficits.
