. EVERYBODY'S CHOICE.
Now that the filing are cloned for the primary
nomination jpf candidates for national and state of
fices in Nebraska, one thing fs certain: The selection
offered the voter is as broad as broad ran be; every
variety of current political opinion that has attained
any considerable degree of expression is represented
on the list.
There are republicans, democrats and progres
sives filed for almost every office; there are men and
women; there are some who cluss as conservatives
and some who are known as liberals; there are young
men and old, veterans of the great war and of the
civjl war, perennial office seekers and first offenders,
farmers and business men and laboring men, sup
porters of. the "code bill" and opponents of it, ad
vocates of the teaching of eclectic medicine in the
slate university and objectors to it.
It is indeeed everybody's race and it is soon to be
everybody's choice. That is as it should be. That is
the inalienable right of citizens of a democracy, to
seek office if they will and to vote for whom they
please. To insure that right the primary system was
established, with the entry fee low and the field open,
In this year of 1922 the invitation has not gone beg
ging. Many have filed and in the list, from 'United
States senator and governor down to minor offices,
are many who are capable and worthy. There is
material Here for building a set of party tickets which
will be creditable to all concerned.
i Everybody has had the opportunity to become a
candidate.' Now it is everybody's choice in the

did likewise and this is simply an example.
About the time the ink was dry on some of these
attacks) Gus Hyers located Brown and Wyoming of

that, as state' sheriff, he has achieved a most uhusual
record jf or getting what he goes after. That one. pe
culiarity .rather overtops any others which-may rub
sorne people the wrong way. From the standpoint, of
the people of Nebraska, it is the only one that is im
portant. Gus Hyers gets results.
W..MR. TAFT CONCEALS 'EM.
Knee breeches and silk stockings do not become
a spindle-shanks, but it may be conceded that Chief
Justice, Taft would cut a fine figure in that conven
tional Costume when presented at the British court.
Santa daus has indeed filled his stocking bountifully,
and no doubt his plump, contented calves would pro
vide something like "a sensation in the royal salon.
Curiosity, however, must remain unsatisfied, for
it. as announced that as chief justice of the supreme
court JJr. Taft will be presented in the flowing robes
ofjoffice. Very well, if this ' is the proper thing, but
the American public would hate to think that its

WAS IT A WOMAN'S CIGARET? :.
The' fire that destroyed a Minnesota summer re
toft is laid to a smoldering cigaret, but even so the
blame csn not be placed on some careless man.' The
chknees are at least even that a woman smoker was
responsible. t That is not to say that as many women -as
'men were smoking at this fashionable dance, but
that women smokers have not yet learned what to do
with the fag. ends. ,
i Feminine carelessness in the disposal of tigaret
butts is blamed by hotel proprietors for the increas
ing number of small fires. The proprietor of a large
hotel in the middle west was quoted recently as de
claring that he had twelve fires in one month that
coiild be traced to just such source. ,
.This failing is given as the main reason for the
installation of women's smoking rooms, equipped
with noniflammable carpets and fireproof furniture.
The very "fact "that a good deal of smoking is done
surreptitiously, in secluded writing nooks and. cur-,
tained corridors where there are no ash trays or
cuspidors, has added to the danger. Men have always
been berated, for strewing the remains of their indul
gence indiscriminately about, but if report be true,
the women smokers also lose their instinct for tidi
.) LAKES WATERWAY ONLY DELAYED.
j Opponents of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence
waterway project 'are making so much noise about
Canadian Premier King's refusal to discuss negotia
tion with the'sUnited States at this time that some of
iti' advocates are professing discouragement.. That
happens to be just what the opposition "Grants, but
the facts fail to bear out their claims.
;" Canada- is not and never has been unanimously
back of te St. Lawrence development. The cities
of Quebec and Montreal have the same reason, to
oppose it that has New York 'city in this country.
All three fear" the loss of certain port business if
ocean ships can carry through to the Great Lakes.
The very basis of their objection is one of the prin
cipal arguments for the improvement; certain waste
ful expenses of transportation will be eliminated, to
the loss of the ports but to the great gain of shippers
;l The fact about Canada's temporary delay, ac
cording to the best observers . on the ground at
Ottawa, is that Premier King wishes Montreal-Quebec
support at this time for certain domestic legislation
and does not want to embroil the whole parliamentary
program in a fight which can be delayed a few weeks
without material damage to anyone. In doe time,
theeLjnlerior -sections of Canada-Ontario In
particular and the food-producing provinces farther
west will pu.h the Great Lakes project through
parliament, over the opposition of Quebec and Mon
treal, just as certainly as the great central western
and New England states of this country will put it
through congreat over the objection of New York.
Incidentally, Canada's lack of 100 per cent sun-
port proves false one of the arguments advanced in
thia country against the project, i. ., that it is
plan to beicfit Canada tremendously at the expense
of the United States.
MARS SAYS NOTHING.
Marconi was disappointed in his effort to catch
radio signals from Mars, which may seem altogether
a fantastic idea since even if that planet be inhabited
the difficulty of finding a common medium of expres
sion would be almost insuperable. The telescope
holds more promise of discovery, and new light may
be thrown on the problem by the astronomers at
Lowell observatory in Arizona and by Prof. Picker
ing's observations in Jamaica while the planet is so
unusually close to the earth.
Why should there be so much speculation" con
cerning the existence of life bn Mars to the neglect
or the great stars 7 tor one thing, it is com
paratively near, and for another, of all the planets
in our solar system, Mars is most like the earth.
Snow and ice have been observed to' cap Its poles
for more than two centuries, enlarging in winter and
melting in summer. Blue-green areas formerly be
lieved to be oceans seem now to have been proved
to be vegetation, for they change colors with the
seasons. The reddish color that covers most of the
surface of .our celestial neighbor Is supposed to be
desert land, and the long straight lines, canals.
The deductions of astronomers have a romantic
flavor, and yet it must be admitted that they hang
together reasonably. When the ice caps melt, the
canals darken as if they were filling with water, and
the green oases become more prominent, as if plants
were growing. Prof. Lowell advances the hypothesis
that the canal system was dug by a race of intelligent
beings who are hard pressed by the scarcity of water
on Mars.. -Tragedy enters the plot with the supposi
tion that once the entire planet was habitable, but
that the Martians now have have been driven by
drouth to concentrate at the irrigated intersections
of the canals. The atmosphere also is very thin, and
there are few clouds to break the force of the sun's
So much of this is surmise that signals from.
Mars, whether understood or not, would give much
needed confirmation. Speculations of the wildest
sort are set under way by the mere thought that there
may be life on our neighbor, but imagination can
hardly outstrip the sober, theories of science.
GET HIS NUMBER.
Another youth has been run down and left lying
injured in the road by an unthinking motorist.
Case after case of this kind has been recorded in
Omaha's motor annals, and in few, if any of these
instances, is the erring motorist hunted out and
brought face to face with justice.
When an autoist flees with darkened lights, after
striking a victim, leaving no clue, it is difficult, al
most impossible for officers jof the law' to trail him
and bring him to the punishment which should be ac
corded a coward who flees from the consequences of
his own carelessness. . .. ? ' ",
. Scarcely an accident of ' this sort occurs without
witnesses.' 'But it hf the rule,"rather than the excep
tion, for the witnesses to be more concerned with
.the injuries of the victim than with the apprehension
of the driver ' - - 1 ' '
"That's. the business of, the police," they reply
when asked if . they secured fhe Ucehs'e number of the
fleeing automobile. " '
And yet it would take but 'a second for a pedes
trian to jot down in his memory or notebook the tell
tale figure. And it would take but a few times of
this diligent practice by accident witnesses to lessen
the number of autoists who escape punishment.
HARVESTING AS A; SOCIAL EVENT.
"Oh for the life of a firemen," might well
changed to "Oh, for the life, of a harvest hand'
Kansas. ; ' .
Pawnee county, Kansas, will begin harvesting 250,
000 acres of wheat June 26 and .needs 2,000 harvest
hands, says a news dispatch out of Lamed. And to
get them, these inducements are being sent broad
cast: Forty ' cents an hour for pitchers and header
barge men, and higher wages for stackers.

ment and equipped with sleeping quarters" for harvest-hands

Evening programs in. theAdunty agent's room at
the court house, where a piano phonography reading

harvesters when not actually engaged in the fields.
All of which should attract a better classof har
vesters eager to do a better job for better pay.
THE RIGHT SORT OF POLICEMAN.
Police problems of the big city could be di
minished, perhaps, by recruiting such men as Thomas
P. Crawford, young, red-headed, blue-eyed, court
officer of the Omaha police force.
Crawford doesn't drink never has and does
not smoke cigarets. Novel, at least.
He finds in his job a great gift from life.
"It is a source of unending education in the
problem ' of living," Crawford declared. "I was a
year in college, but a year on the force taught me
many times as much, of helpful information., s
"In police work, however, I find not an eqd but
a means. 1 1 hope to become a lawyer. Hard work
and thrift are building up the fund that will pay my
way through school. . I honestly believe I am getting
much here that will pay me dividends in money and
human nature later in my career."
. A means, not an end that's it.
The police department need be made more at
tractive to ambitious youth and less attractive to men
seeking some pension niche. Were more policemen
finding their jobs stepping stones to success instead
of stairways down to retirement, public protection
would make visible progress.
Michigan convicts turn out $2,000,000 worth of
products each year, according to the head of the
prison industries. It's not a bad idea to make law
breakers earn their keep. Why not a city work
Japan is making real progress in imitating west

tinue their sedentary life.
