If tho Sackett Jaw for ousting derelict public officers Is really a failure, then tho case of those two South OmaliA police commissioners must be the exception that proves tho rule. The Houston Post ronitnda tho tlomocratic , congress that it was elected on a pledge of construction and not destruction. It may ltavo oc casion to repeat tho reminder sev eral times. The "old-timer" who writes to his XAinlly newspaper to-eay how he and other dovb of his day relished that ne old pastime of carrying in wood qvcry morning, has waited quite a While to express his Joy. Chicago has an alderman who owns fi, saloon that Ib said to violate the 1 o'clock closing ordinance and when lto was haled up on the charge, the otty prosecutor dlsml6Boa tho case. We tremble to think what might liappen If that were Omaha, instead of Chicago. Congressman Lobeok objects to placing fourth -class postmasters itader civil service, while favoring It fpr their clerk. Uo' saves himself tie trouble of attempting to give' a plaueible reason for his position and Is not candid enough to admit It is almply becauau he hopes to cut up tho The Army on the Panama. Colonel Goethnls' recommendation of n garrison of 25,000 men to gUHrtl the Panama canal doubtless will provoke the snmo controversy as. arose wo years ago over fortifica tion In -onBresfl when those In oppo sition contended that the chief ob jection to fortifying the canal at all was that It would necessitate a large standing army. The objectors have gone so far as to deny the govern ment'B nttthorlty under the raool act to provide fortifications. In u speech January Id. IP It. on the floor of the house, Representative J. Warren Kelfor of Ohio Insisted that wc nroj "not authorized under the law toi fortify." quoting from the law specl-j fylng the power of the president to control the territory and the canal, "giving him the right In tho oxcrclso of-" Jurisdiction over mild ulrlti mid the iwtrtf, at th ami tVlarnf lt nnlit llr.h police and eanltary rulen and reKiilntlona aa shnll be uecucmry to enforce alli-h rule and regulation. Anticipating the counter claim that this discretionary power might be sufficient warrant for fortifications, Mr. Kelfor promptly adds that, "tho president's power ovur tho canal, It will bo seen, is carefully limited by this law In harmony with calBtlng treaties." II lit It Is doubtful if this is the dominant view of the country or the ono thut will ultimately prevail. Tho people seem to consider thnt the gov ernment not only hns tho right, but from a practical standpoint, Ik duty bound, to provide adequate', fortifica tions, for an enterprise, the Initial cost of which Is sonio $400,000,000. And If fortifications hrn required at all, they will have to be com mensurate with tho ncedB nnd charac ter of the Institution. The Inaugural Ball. Tho ball n s a part of tho Inaugura tion ceremonies mny be dispensed with this year, at least, aB the in coming chief exnoutlvo has suggested its omission, and about Washington there Is something of a nontlmcnt ngalnst It, chlefiy on the grounds that it, involves a usoloss expenditure. Of course tho tlmo and money are not final considerations.' If the ball were deemed essential, no ono would hest tato on that account.

REUBEN BUYS A FAR. Minna Irving, In Judg Tile day was bright and sunn- . And business going well. Out Reuben In his office A prey to dreaming fell, lie thought of woods and nuadovs With all their sylvan charm. "Good bye, old ton," he murmured. "For Rueben buys a farm " He found a roomy dwelling With roses round the door. A covered well behind It, A picket fence before, And ancient apple-orchards Where sang, secure from harii-. An orchestra of robin, So Reuben bought the farm Hut getting up so euiiy To milk by inntern-llght. And feed tho pigs nnd chickens Wns not unmixed delight. A pain was In his shoulder. A cramp was In his arm, And life was full of trouble. For lleuben on the fami. He loved his growing garden And pleasant pasture lands. But not his aching muscles And badly blistered hunda. The household gathered round I1I111 And viewed him with alarm. "We nil," they said, "should htrstle When Reuben buys a farm." Now Paul attends tho horsex. The cows are Mary's' care. The pigs and geese nnd chickens. Jeannetto'a attention share. And George tn ducks discovers A never-falling rhnrm So everybody's happy While Reuben runs the farm. 1 To Keep A Hired n 1 uin KeepHer Comfort able with PERFECT!
