Omaha, while insisting on the princi ple of the occupation tax, want to deal fairly with tbelr public service corpor ations, and likewise want these cor porations to deal fairly with them. There is no good reason, therefore. why the occupation tax ordinances cannot be adjusted to meet the condi tions of the several public service cor porations In a way that la fair and not vindictive, and at the same time firm tn the assertion of the public rights. Warning' to Cuba. Tbe Department of State at Wash ington has addressed a sharp note to ling him that right, but he Is entitled Change in Oleo Law. A change Is advocated by Secretary of the Treasury MacVeagh In the rev enue duty upon oleomargarine, which now Is one-quarter of 1 cent per pound upon uncolored and 10 cents per pound on colored. He proposes to make it a flat rate of 2 centa per pound upon all grades. As a revenue producer the change would probably Increase the government's receipts, but state laws would in many In stances make It impossible to sell the colored product at all. What- Is more Important to the dairy Interests Is Mr. MacVeagh'a rec ommendation regarding the marketing of the product. The law's design was to prevent selling oleomargarine for butter, but It has In large measure failed and the secretary proposes to remedy this by changing the style of putting up the product. lie would have it put up only in one, two and three-pound packages, each package to be wrapped and stamped In such a way that It could not be opened with out destroying the stamp or the brand Ing of the word "oleomargarine." Such regulations, he holds with ap parent reason, would make it difficult to substitute oleo for butter at any stage from manufacturer to con sumer, which it is now charged is frequently done. If for reasons of price or any other cause the consumer desires to use oleo there Is no apparent reason for deny- ferted.

Dependency appears no longer to be a misfortune or a cllxgrace. It Is a privUege for Which half the world appears to be clamoring, with the em ployes in the public service leading the van. It is quite evident that Mr. Bryan was wise not to volunteer his services to draft that bank deposit guaranty law, even though the legislature had to hire an outside lawyer to do so.

Wo Vital Chanties In the Army Serv- lee Uniform. Washington Herald. It must be gratifying to army officers to learn that the military authorities In Washington have decided to do no vio lence to the required design of service apparel. The sentiment of the commis sioned personnel has been very emphat ically expressed by Major General Thomas II. Barry. U. S. A.. In hla -rennrt am tha late commander of the army of Cuban pacification. General Barry Intimated that there has been altogether too much Inter ference, . with, i the uniform, and that the experts havogone Into a microscopic refinement 6f distinctions which, are pf no special advantage In a military way. and certainly hot to the Individual, who must conform to any changes made in the uniform at his own expense. Pre sumably, General Barry refers to such minor alterations as the adoption of dull finished insignia and the elimination of all that is conspicuous In the way of bras buttons and gHt. This, however, refers only to the fighting dresa of the officer, who Is still required to provide himself with a purely ornamental uniform for the occas slons of show. That uniform is, In some instances, gorgeous and glittering to the degree of barbaric splendor. It haa now been decided that the ur.i- lform will be allowed to remain as It is, and the new edition of the regulations on the subject will be confined to bringing the official requirements up to date. Thla must ba gratifying news to army officers, who realise that every change means a draft upon their financial resources, with no certainty that the change will remain in effect. It is easy enough to amend the uniform, because there are officers In the service who alwaya entertain Ideas which they think are worth official adop tion. It Is assuredly the part of wisdom and consideration of the Individual which finds the military authorities refraining from further molestation of the army unl form. PlZil.ES OF NEW TAX.

Mr. Harrlman, of the great "Pacific aystem," is now retiring the preferred atock of the Southern Pacific. The earn ings now paying dividends upon this stock would be subject to the proposed tax If the stock were not retired. One of the choices offered to those preferred stock- lio.ders la that they may exchange their shares for bonds of the aame company. SuppoMe all the preferred stockholders ex changed f.ielr shares for such bonds. Then would the funds otherwise subject to the tax become Immune? And.

Agitation for woman suffrage In New Tork differs radically from the methods of the London sisters. The latter are a Scrappy bunch, preferring short-arm Jolts' on masculine mugs to the usual womanly means of making an Impression. Differ ence In the calibre of men dealt with re quire different methods of procedure. The New Tork suffragists wisely cut "the manly art" out of the program, and will reach the manly heart iy a more expedi tious route. "No vote, no wedding bens, Is the motto of the slaters who are enlisted In the cause. Mrs. Oliver liaaard Perry Belmont advised this course one sure to bring the lordllnga to their knees. No single woman will receive the attentions of any man mho will not pledge himself to work and vote for equal suffrage. Hus bands of suffragists are expected to Join In tha crusade or take to the woods. A paper binding the members to the Belmont pledge Is going the rounds and the girls aro signing with the courage and reckless ness of would-be martyrs. "Within a month," says the secretary of the New Tork sufferers, "we will have the name of 10.000 girls eligible to matrimony who have pledged themselves to abide by the reso lution. In six months we should have nearly 100.000 girls, and when the men who won't give us our rights see that It's a question of votes or wives they'll choose the wives." The pledge reads: "We, the undersigned, hereby declare that we will not Indulge In matrimony with any man who Is not willing to sign an agreement that he will not only lend his moral support to suffrage, but will work patiently and hard toward Its support and success. Save for one side of his face which still shows him to be a Caucasian, John McFall, of 31.'i West lth street, has turned a deep chocolate color and would bs taken any where for a negro. McFall, who Is 37 years old. Is a street car driver and on Thursday he applied to Pellevtie hospital for treatment to restore him to his natural color. Vr. Leroy examined him. He was un able to diagnose the cane. One solution is that McFall Is suffering from melano sis, one of the rarest of diseases. Another theory is that nitrate of silver, whtoh he has used for years to paint his throat be cause of bronchial trouble, has brought about the change, which has been gradual the disease appearing In spots, which ran together. McFall was sent to the city hospital where he will be examined by skin spe cialists. A little exptrtenoe practicing law In New York la apt to make an attorney stop, look and listen bfore he takes a step, accord ing to United States District Attorney Wise, a ho prosecuted the sugar caaea. Mr. Wise told the other day of one of hla early cases, whe: the paint on his shingle waa hardly dry. He was prosecuting a man for agsra vated assault. One of his witnesses had told a hair raising yarn of his experience wl:hshe criminal at the bar. "Tou know," said tha witness, "Jake's mighty hot tempered. First thing he does when he gets mad, is to yank out a knife and try to cut your heart out. WeU, he comes at me with a big pigsticker one day, and I was sure scared. Looked like ho naa me, for I was cornered. Couldn't get away noways. But I was foxy, seer ai run toward me, I run toward him.

On the stand me man flatly denied that he had ever exchanged a crosa word with Jake. "Never heard nothln about his having a bad temper," eald the witness. "He's always been peaceable, o far as I know." Wle was thunderstruck. "But didn't you te41 so-and-so." said he. "mat Jake once rushed at you with a knife?" "Sure I did.
