Neither commission plan nor woman suffrage appears to, be ablo ta still the turbulence of municipal politic: ,fn DenVcr 'Will Hearst run Clark again in lOlflt" someone asks. It might bo a safe guess to say that Hearst would rather run Hearst Too Much of a Showing. A compilation presumably made in bohalf of tho firo insurance compa nies to "show" Missouri that it is pursuing a mistaken policy toward them represents tho ratio of loss to rate there as muoh greator than In surrounding states. In Missouri It Is shown that tho firo rate is 97 cents as against a Iobb ratio of 73 cents, whllo In Nebraska the rate averages $1.07 to a loss ratio of 52.2 cents. Iowa and Kansas have the same av erages rate as. Nebraska, with loss ratio of 68.5 cents and 73.3 cents, respectively. From tho insurance raan'B view point this makes a fine showing for Missouri, but a mighty poor showing for Nebraska. It means that Ne braska has been paying $2 in premi ums on Its fire policies for ovory dol lar returned to policy holders for losses. Not only this, but that Ne braska Is being taxed disproportion ately to pay tho firo losses in other states. By tho tlmo tho underwrit ers got through "showing" Missouri It might bo a good thing for them to start In to show Nebraska.

In the entertainment of the editors South Omaha served wine and cocktails In abundance at tho banquet, and the Commercial club of Omaha put rum In thn Ice cream.

Omaha entertains; its guests by trying to treat them right. Whatovor enter tainment is offered hero Is freely and publicly tendered without any Invl tatton Into the back room. Omaha loavos it entirely to each guest to do- cldo, without duress, whether they will stick to unformonted grapejulco of sip something more sparkling. The peaco movemont Is gaining fast Tho only trouble Is that the war movement Bcoms likewise to be gaining. fast, It not faster. Judging from the roports of drouth In, those southwestern states, it seems that the rain, which falls on tho lust sometlmea misses tho unlust. No Confidence or Sympathy. If war is avoried botwoen certain Balkan states It probably will be dUo tho interposition of European pow ers. Thoy may have tho influence to provont it, but it becomes increas Ingly evident each day that If loft to themselvos the wrangling neighbors of the Bosphorous ore likely soon to bo nt war. Thoy have evidently lost all confidence and sympathy in each other, if thoy over had elthor, and the absonco of those makes It neces sary to depend for peaco upon out side influence. It seomo impossible to hope for tho settlement of their differences now through conferences of themselves, for thoy have con ferred upon ovory question and phaso of question that has arisen without coming near to a mutual agreoment. From tho first of tho Turko-Balkan war conflicting selfish interests of tho alliod states were ap parent, and after the common foe was conquered it was but natural that tho clash should como between tho victors over tho spoils. This clash assumes much of the character ot tho Burvtval of the fittest, show ing tho alllanco to have been but a temporary expedient and the entonto cordlalo such In name only. Thirty years Ago General O. O. Howard delivered an address at St. Mary's Avenue Cong.reBa tlonal church on "The Plan of Life, dealing with the causes of success and failure. , a hmnrh society of the Irish National league waa organized with the following Oltlcors; 1'.

John Roslcky had gone to Milwaukee an delcgato from the local lodge to the supreme lodgo of the Bohemian Benevo lent society. Hon.

It Is rumored that negotatlons are In progress for the erection of a fine union depot by all tho railroads, to be located on the present site of the Canileld house on Ninth and Farnam. Mrs. J. M.

Aftermath of Meet Still, anyone as eager to bo a mar tyr to a great cause ought to be ablo to find a better way than being tram pled to death in a horse raco, Kansas gets the prize for the pret tiest girl in the country. Modesty feust have restrained our Nebraska girls from entorlng tho contest. So long, however, as dare-devil Joy ridora continue to enjoy ImmU' nlty from deserved penalties, the In nocent bystander will havo to look out That la an interesting story about 'How a Funeral Story Sent Clark (Speaker Clark) to Congress." An other funeral story might be written with Baltimore as its background, which did not aend him to the White House. ''Buffalo Bill" has recovered from what was thought to bo a dangerous attack, of Illness. "Buffalo Bill" owes It to Nebraska to carry . tho state's fame and name around In noar and distant lands for some time yet to come. A thousand dollars a day Is being (aken out of tho pockets of the peo ple of Omaha by the extortionate water rates over and above what la required for the necessary running expenses of the water plant The. promised rate reduction Is long overdue. Social Lobbies. Reference to the existence of social lobbies at Washington serves to re mind those conversant with tho facta that thoy are to bo found also around every state legislature In tho coun try. Many a measure owes Its suc cess to theso Ingratiating subtleties It Is not tho easiest matter to decline simply a courteous Invitation to din ner, or a theater party or tho Hke, ovon though It may bring the same result at comparatively nominal ox- penso as a moro expressive method of persuasion. It very skilfully com bines the two hotfky purposes of avoiding offense had saving money. Those who have observed tho work' lngs of this system, though, will be apt to agreo with tho. senator who condemns It as more insidious than the other kind. This social lobbying Is an old and multiform trick in Amorlcan busi ness, as well as political life. Many a successful business or professional man knows that not all tho appar ently purposeless social functions- receptions, balls, dinners are as In nocent as they appear, but that under tho veneer of the happy occasion may bo an objective goal of a serious character. The social side of life has many ramifications. Twenty Years Agi iiignwaymen nau a rainy Dusy nigm of It.

Porter, who were among the early settlers In Omaha, were visiting hore from California. Judge Herbert J. Davis of the district court announced that at the end of the ensuing term he would resign and leave the bench, 'giving as his only reason the fact that he could no longer afford to hold the office at the salary of $2,600 a year.

An emotional suffragette orator declaiming upon tho deed of the so called martyr who intercepted the king s racehorse and died as a re sult said she hoped this example would kindlo a flame in the souls of men which would end the present awful situation. It seems at this distance, however, that men have lit- tlo to do with the situation, which might adjust itself quicker If the British militants would show them selves possessed of more common sense. Our esteemed Nebraska National Guards are informed by Washington that they may not now receive the machine gun from the War depart ment they asked for.

Nebraska editors have a warm spot In the editorial heart for the city ot Omaha on account of the splendid en tertainment, and a convention ot any kind Is about half amusement, i OtnnliR Hard to Bent. Hastings Tribune. When It comes to entertaining, the good citizens of Omaha are hard to beat as will be testified to by every member ot the Nebraska Press association who was fortunate enough to attend the big meet ing In Nebraska's metropolis this week. Put the Others In the Shade. Nebraska City News. In entertaining the Nebraska Editorial association, the city of Omaha, assisted by South Omaha, set a pace that It will be difficult for any other town to fol low. When Lincoln entertains this as sociation It does well, but there Is so much to Omaha that It puts the other towns In the shade. The time was when Fremont, Grand Island, York, Hastings, Beatrice and towns of that size could ell care for the association, but now there are so many members and so much asked of them that the little towns can not caro for the members and the visi tors, but it requires a city to look after them. Beaming Faces Betoken DellKQt. Omaha Chancellor. Omaha has thoroughly enjoyed the pleasant duty ot entertaining the editors of this state during the last few days. That It has succeeded well In this is ap parent on every hand. These editors and their wives havo been given the best we had in the shop, and their beaming faces betoken the delightful time they have known. Would Meet In 'Omnhn Every Year. Scrlbner Rustler. We returned last evening from Omaha where we attended the forty-first an nuai meeting of the Nebraska Press as sociation, which waa In session for three ays. In order to tell ail about the loyal treatment by Omaha and South Omaha, to the editors, It would require more space than we have at this time. We can only say that our visit during the session was Indeed made an enjoyable one and It we were to decide the ques tion where to meet every year, wo would say Omaha. JOLLIES FK0K JUDGE. An Artist In Silence. J. Plerpont Morgan was always a silent man, and ho would sometimes champion the silent with a story. "Old John Bates, an upholsterer," so the story began, "was renowned for his silence People who had been his cus tomers for a generation had, many ot them, never heard a word from him ex cept, 'Good morning. Five dollars. Thank you. Good day.' Old John, In fact, cul tivated silence as a genius cultivates his art. "A patron one day said to John: " 'What's the best kind of matUessT' " 'Hair.' was the reply. "The patron, some twenty years later, had occasion to buy another mattress, and again he asked: "'What's the best kind, John?' " 'Cotton.' " 'Cotton?' the patron cried. 'Why, you told me twenty years ago that hair was the best.' "The old man gave a quaint sigh.' " 'Talking has always been my ruin,' he said." Washington Star. Truthful Jniues. A hostess, who was going to give a big dinner party, hired a page for that par ticular evening to help with the waiting. and duly impressed his duties upon him during the course of the afternoon. "Now, James," she said, "It will be your duty to hand round the wines, and you will begin with the sherry. There are two kinds of sherry, and the Inferior kind Is to be offered with the soup. Do you understand?" James duly mastered this and the other details of his work, and the banquet be gan. Presently the hostess signed to James, and the young man, seizing the decanter, began to make his rounds, say ing In clear und penetrating tones as he approached each guest: "Inferior sherry, ma'am? Inferior sherry, sir?" Pittsburgh Chronicle Tele graph. Intentlonnl. Ole was working in a furniture factory. Ons day he backed Into an open elevator shaft and crashed down to the floor be low.

He could view tho widow's anguish and hear tho orphan's sob. And never feel tho slightest sym pathy. His soul was hard as granite, rcmorsi dwelt not with him. He was equal to all crimes or sinful capers; Except for ono deterring thought, the only ono he knew, The fear that It would get Into 'th papers.

A Medal or n Mauling. Stromsburg Item in Osceola Record. Editor Chattle Coleman of the Head light is attending the press association at Omaha this week. The Bee refers to Miss Coleman as the distinguished editor who has put fourteen competitors out of business in the last thirty years, or an average of a halt A competitor each year. Miss Coleman has not decided whether Vlo is entitled to a medal or a mauling. Kverlairtiniz Good Will. ' ' 'Tekamah Herald. Omaha has the everlasting good will of every newspaper man and woman who attended the three-day's .convention of the Nebraska Press association. Omaha does things, and no city anywhere has better and bigger hearted bunch ot boosters than Omaha. No Nerve to Knock Now. Western Laborer. The way Omaha entertained the' country editors this week was a caution. It was a program of entertainment with out a hitch, without a peer. All the editors and their wives enjoyed the visit and will feel better toward Omaha In the future. One of he country editors said to me: "Listen a country editor who enjoyed the vlstt this week must be a fish If he has the nerve to knock on Omaha, after the way everybody in the city has treated us." The big do thlngs men ot Omaha and South Omaha are determined to have Nebraska for the two Oman as and the two Omahoa for Nebraska, and they expect to reach Ne braska through the country editors. To know that the editors enjoyed their visit and will .come oftner was the one thought In the minds of the men who arranged, paid for and carried out the program. Editorial Snapshots !
