Now if thoao dandelions were only daisies or violets, we would bo sing ing another tune. Over In England they talk of "ox part militant flro bugs." Wo would imagine that flro bugs would have to be militant, whother expert or not. Anyway, failure to tots somo of those federal plums into tho back yard of Nebraska democracy will not be duo to a lack of hands up to catch them. Perhaps -our Water board is con tinuing to exact those "extortionate" rates Just to mako us placo a higher value on tho water whloh wo got froo is the downpour from tho heavens. Noise is for many people a pleasant excitement, like strong drink. Chicago Tribune. Well, it's a concussion anyway to admit that strong drink is a pleasant excitement, Tho ukase has gone out that gam bling; slot machines in South Omaha must gs. What, are there slot: ma chines running in doflanco of law "within the jurisdiction of our reform democratic sheriff? Our now ambassador to Japan is 62 years old. Of all places In tho diplomatic service, that is the one whore -wo ought to have a represen tative who is a live one, and up to snuff all the time, It is high time for firo rates in Omaha to come down, at least to tho extent of the penalty that was added for deficient water supply for flro protection. What aro our business men's organizations going to do about It? Down at Lincoln an Injunction has been procured to keep the town dry two weeks longer, although it voted wet Try to imagine, It you can what would happon It some one got an injunction to keep the town wet Sor two weeks after it had voted dry, Prosecution under the Sherman anti-trust law is threatened to any concern that reduces wages and blames tbe reduction on tho tariff But suppose the tariff forces wage reduction In certain lines? How can it be a crime to tell the truth about It? Those who dismally predict that the different elements of the ropub llcan party can never again be gotten together should recall the split be tween the stiver democrats and the gold democrats, and then look at the president's cabinet made up of both varieties, What an opportunity Governor Johnson has missed It he failed to pxrange with a moving picture con cera for a photo-play reproduction of a state executive giving a cold turn-down to the president of tho United States and bis august socre ftary of stato. i Governor Morehead wants it dls linctly understood that Election Commissioner Moorbead is in no way related to him, and seems to fear false impression may prevail on that score. If the election commissioner is not distressed by the possible mis take, why) should the governor bo? The outgoing city treasurer (it tJouth Omaha boasts that be turns over to bis successor more money than he, himself, received from his predecessor. But is this really some' thing to boast about? Correct .finance would have a city pay Its 'way as It goes without accumulating mar large surplus except to meet 1m Jsjia jlag deauulf Railroads at Their Old Tactics. Tho railroads are making tholr customary protest before tho State Board of Assessment, alleging that their valuations for taxation aro too high as compared with other prop erty. The representatives of tho rail roads must bo having a hard time to keep a straight face while present ing this pica. The State Ilallway commission has been making a phy sical valuation of railroad property In Nebraska, and an far as It has gone Its figures are higher for tho physical proporty alone, without the franchise, than aro tho assessed values of the roads. But more than this, tho valuo of tho physical prop erty fixed by tho engineers, under direction of tho railway commission, Is considerably less In each caso, than tho figures nt which tho railroads Insist they should be put. To a man up a tree It would look as If tho railroad protest against the tax assessment wero simply a move to offset and divert attention from tho physical valuation appraisement. Republican Reorganization. That thoro will bo somo tangible stops taken toward republican reor ganization along national lines has teen plainly manifest ever since the last presidential campaign. It Is natural and inevitable that some thing. should bo done to removo somo of tho causes of dissatisfaction ro bponslble for defeat, and more par ticularly to prevent recurrence by mnklnc It certnln that the next standard bearer may havo an un questioned title to his nomination. Tho consensus of opinion seems to be that the most feasible way to bring this about Is to hold an Inter mediate convention to change tho ap portionment, of delegates. By such change, representation in tho subse quent nominating convention would bo made to conform more closely to tho party strength in tho rospectlvo states and congressional aisiricis, and tho outcry against overweighted southern delegations stopped. Just now a competition threatens over rival claims for tho credit of starting tho reorganization move ment Certnln party loaders, chiefly United States senators, want it to appear that they first turned tho whoolB, although it will bo necessary for tho regular party organization through Its duly constituted office Inaugurate and carry through whatever plan may ue auopieu. While tho party door will, of course, bo open to all who aro ready to Join hands again under tho old bannor, tho qualification tost for leadership will havo to bo sincerity of purpose, ot.imv tn tnnnlro confidence ana ToadlnosB to fight tho battles ahead of ub with patriotic and unselfish mo tlves. Service that Should Be Appreciated, Tho retirement of Charles a. i'ick- ons from the Ak-Sar-Bon board of governors, of which ho has for years been president, Is occasion to remina tho nooplo of Omaha that thoy no not fully realize, nor adequately np Droclato. tho service rendered to tlio community by a man in this capac ity. As Droaldont of the Ak-8ar-Bon orcanizatlon, Mr. Plcitens parucu- larly -haB been consclontouB and aa siduous In his devotion to Its Inter ests. To lnsuro its success ho has given time, energy and ability that could not (have been bougnt ror any amount of money, but ho has glvon it all froely out of (real publc spirit and patriotic prldo in tno city. The Eleotion, Commissioner. In the appointment of an election commissioner under tho new law en acted by tho last legislature, Dover nor Morehead 1b to be congratulates on having gotton away from the wnrd-heoler cIobs, for all will agroo that his seloctlon, Harloy Q. Moor head, is a young man of unblemished reputation and good standing In tho community. Ho has been regarded as a rising young lawyer, and made creditable raco for tho district bench at the lost Judicial election Bo tho only surprise is that he should bo witling to accept a Balarlod nosltlon that through the proper per formance of the duties will taKe mm completely out of his profession. Tho expectation, however, that we will get "pure elections" over-nlgnt that the contested olectlon 1b now a thing of tho past, and that every defeated candidate will hereafter bo satisfied he has been honestly beaten Just because the supervision of tho election machinery has been turned over to an appolntco of a nonresident governor Is likely to bo illusory. The new taw may work some improve ments we certainly hope, It will but the millennium in elections Is yet to come, and our best wish for the now commissioner is that Ms troubles will be little ones. The point has been raised whether tho appropriation for an armory at Nebraska City, against which tho referendum Is threatened, is really subject to popular review. Tho referendum clause of the constitu tion exampts from its operation ap propriations for any existing Instl tutlon, and advocates ot the armory appropriation are trying to claim ex emption for it.

"San Francisco Argonaut A Xrvr Job. Physically speaking, Ollle James, the new senator from Kentucky, weighs close to 300 pounds and In a political sense he tips the scales at 1,600 tons. His last achievement was to give Luther Bur bank, the plant wizard, a new and diffi cult job. Last summer James toured California, and ono day he lunched with Burbank, who seemed Intensely Interested In the vast amount of food the bltf Kentucklan stowed away and his manner of doing the stowing.

The late Edward Dowden, whose "Life ot Shelley" brought down on him a tre mendous rebuke for snobbishness, was be ing discussed at the Franklin Inn In Philadelphia.

While the business man who Is seized with fright every tlmo he hears the tariff discussed, while the banker Is com plaining that we haven't a currency suf ficiently elastic, and while the average citizen feels a mood of economy stealing over him, nature seems unperturbed and Is working overtime to shower blessings on all sides. Old Sol Is blessing Mother Earth with his rich and warm raya In a sacrificial effort to give us a bounti ful harvest this fall, and thereby arouse frail human nature from Its pronounced case ot dejection and the pip. They may cut the tariff If they wish to, they may give the nation a better currency system, but no congress can stop old Sol from making the earth give forth an unusual bounty of riches In tho form of bumper crops. The first crop report published last week is a real tonlo for whatever depres sion envelops us now. It. Is out of the earth the new wealth comes each year, wealth thaf muBt be moved and con sumed. If nature's moods do not go awry before the harvest we may confidently look tor new yields which will exceed ,Hlll's great dream of $0,000,000,000. Imagine what this wealth means to commerce of this country. Think what It represents to the prosperity of the na tion. It will be crops, nothing else, which will prove tho saving situation for this country next fall. We may then hav so much mpney as to becomo even In discreet enough to buy automobiles. And tho soup houses about which we hear the croakers talk so much will again fade away as a mere memory of 1833. Worrying John Bull Philadelphia Ledger: If these bomb outrages continue In England they'll have to force the militant suffragettes to wear uniforms so they can't hide 'em. Baltimore Amorlcan: John Bull 1 put ting the suffragists In Jail, Uncle Sam Is listening to what they have to say for themselves. At present, Uncle Sam is holding the chivalry record. New York Sun: Prepared as we are to shudder over the atrocities of the English militant suffragettes, we are in cllnod to believe that soma at least of the bombs found "planted" nowodays are In reality "planto." New York Herald: Exquisite Is the urbanity of the rector of St Catharine's Church, Hatchom. England, who says of Its burning: "I cannot aaoriba it to any other than those delightful ladles," the suffragettes. Dear delights, England Is finding them. Cleveland Plain Dealer: It will be noted that Sir Edward Orey, the British foreign minister, who la for peace at any price abroad, la following similar tactics at home. He spoke for and voted for the recent suffrage proposition which Pre mier Asqulth and most of the cabinet opposed. Pittsburgh Dispatch: It turns out that Lloyd George, whose-house the militants tried to destroy by dynamite and arson. voted for suffrage Just the tame, But there -were others who made the deduc tion that the suffragette pranks do not prove feminine qualification for the bal lot Undoubtedly Mrs. Pank hurst and her followers beat that bill.

May 10.-To the Editor of The Bees Members ot the Audubon so ciety are deeply Interested In legislation relating to the protection ot birds. The aigrette Is torn from the live mother lrd In the nesting season and the little ones are left to starve. Intelligent, kind hearted women wear theee aigrettes, birds ot paradise and other hat adorn ments because they are Ignorant as to the manner In which these things art ob tained. No self-respecting woman (and, above all, no mother) with anything re sembling a heart, will consent to wear aigrettes or certain fura. once sli has learned of the unspeakable horrors that attend their procuring. President Wilson has this month con vened a special session ot congretr. tor tne purpose of passing the revised tariff act The officers of the Audubon society have strong grounds for believing that It will be possible to have Inserted In this a provision prohibiting the Importation ot aigrettes, provided a wide campaign of publicity can be Immediately Inaugurated. There will undoubtedly bo strong oppo sition to the proposed law opposition on the part of merchant milliners who en courage the aigrette atrocities as a source of revenue. The matter Is In the hnds of the American women. MINNIE MADDERN F18KE, GEORGE ARLISS. The Real Council Bluffs. SHERIDAN, 'Wyo., May 10. To the Editor of The Bee: Noting In the report of General Grenvllle M. Dodge s speech at the meeting ot the Eagles in Council Bluffs, that the good general refers to Council Bluffs, la., as the place where Lewis and Clark held their council with the Indiana and that It had even then been known as the "council bluffs,' 1 dislike to differ from so good a historian as General Grenvllle M. Dodge, but must. If one will refer to the published edition of Lewis and Clark's Journal which Is In the Omaha public library, he will find that Lewis and Clark did not hold their counsel with the Indians In or near where Council Bluffs now stands nor even on tho east side of the Missouri river. Their Journal distinctly locates tholr council on a bluff on the west side the bluff on which Fort Calhoun waa afterwards built. This is also referred to in George Cat lln's book with that Btory of his won derful travels among tho Indians and his remarkable drawings ot them and their life scenes. You will also note that on George Catlln'a return he writes that he visited tho grave of the great Chief Blackbird who had been burled on n bluff on tho west bank of tho Missouri, sitting astride of a live white horso which the Indlanb had enwalled about ana over-covered with sods. A badger, or some other wild animal had dug a hole In tho top of the mound, exposing BlacK- blrd's skull, which George Catlln records he took away with him. I am still a lover ot your city and the tntA of Nebraska, and I would most earnestly point out and defend the his torical points that rightfully belong to them. HORACE F. hu About Dandelions. SOUTH OMAHA, May 12. To the EM' Itor of The Bee: It has come to mV notice lately and I have heard others speak of It that where white clover Is pretty thick, dandelions do not grow as well as hnv do In other places. White clover seems to retard the growth of dandelions. For my own part I do not think they are such ugly flowers, for In some places thev really Improve the loolts or wings. It Is Impossible to exterminate them, so people might as well take them as they come tor they will grow as long as vege tation grows. There aro worse things to worry about than dandelions any now. F. A. AUflliW. Sure Death to Dandelions. WATERLOO. Neb., May 13. To the Editor of The Bee: As Omaha seeme Dunt on dandelion warfare, I wish to suggest althoush somewhat late, a much, simpler and more efficient means of destruction than digging, and one that does not dis figure the lawn. Gaaollne Is death to aanaeuona, In applying It, It Is best to use on or dinary "spring bottom" macnine 011 can, holding one-half to one pint Pour from one-half to two teaspoonfuls on the cen ter of the plant By the next day the plant turns brown at the center, and In a few days the entire plant is dead.
