MOSES P. KINKAID.
Nebraska and the nation alike suffer a real loin
in the death of Moses P. Kinkaid. His service in
public life, which covered a ipan of almost forty
yean,' was notable because it was of a useful sort.
He was not spectacular in any of his aspects, but as a
member of the legislature, a judge on the district
bench, and as a representative in congress, he ex
hibited s high quality of common sense. Conserva
tive in his views, he was sufficiently progressive to
keep up with the times, and his sterling worth was
proven on many occasions when he helped to give
constructive character to proposed legislation with
out tincturing it with any dangerous element of ex
perimentation. While he will bo most familiarly remembered be
cause of the so-called Kinkaid act, his long service on
the irrigation committee of the house, of which he
waa chairman at the time of his death, gave him op
portunity to assist in setting: ahead the great work
of reclamation, which was just being taken up se
riously by the federal government when he entered
congress. His assistance in shaping the laws which
have permitted the restoration to use of so many
acres of public domain, establishing homes on what
had been waste land, is beyond estimation in price
to the nation. He served his district in every way
a congressman can be useful to his constituents, and
because of his high standing in the house he was of
more than ordinary value to his people.
While his demise was not entirely unexpected,
nevertheless the news of his death will shock Ne
braskans generally, for "Uncle Mose" was more than
a local statesman, he was a state institution. He died
practically in the harness, as he might have wished,
giving the last of his strength to the public service.
He answered to his name in the house last Friday,
the day of adjournment for a short summer vacation ;
for him it proved to be a call to everlasting rest. His
work was ended, and those who have been permitted
to waicn nil career ana Know tne man Know it was

8. M. Jewell, who speaks for the men, says he It
ready to receive anyone who comes from the rail
roads; Ben W. Hooper, chairman of the labor board,
ays the way to a further discussion of wage and
other grievances is open. Exchange of conciliatory
letters between the two proves the openminded atti
tude of each, and should pave the way to the desired
consultation. As far as the men are concerned, an
immediate return to work will cost them nothing, if
their rights are secured under the agreement to be
established between Messrs. Hooper and Jewell. So
far as their solidarity and loyalty to their unions is
concerned, that has been confirmed, if ever it was
doubted. It can be yet further verified by a show
of discipline, which will include observance of orders
issued by their leaders. It is in no sense a surrender
that is asked, just an armistice, with perhaps a
"modus vivendi," which will permit the men to carry
on and at the same time insure attachment to the pay
roll, a point that is important if not paramount. An
honorable way to peace is presented, and no hesitancy
should delay its acceptance.
OMAHA SOURS ON BOX-FIGHTS.
We have no ambition to qualify as a kill-joy or a
crepe hanger, but we do find a' certain degree of
cause for content in the announcement that the box
ing game it dead in Omaha. Especially is this note
worthy because if it it dead it has been killed by the
!men who might ordinarily be expected to do the most
to keep it alive.
When the American Legion sponsored a bill to
legalise boxing in Nebraska, The Omaha Bee gave
unqualified content, because the measure was one cal
culated to give an impetus to a healthy sport. Box
ing as an amateur sport deserves consideration, and
should ba encouraged, for so many obvious reasons
that they will not here be recounted. The law was
to accomplish this desirable end, and in some sense it
lias done so.
Commercialized boxing very soon crowded ama
teur boxing off the map, however, and for months
the public has been pestered with announcements of
the clashes between "Slasher This" and "Smasher
That," battlet the chief element of which was the
division of receipts. Exponents of fistiana came and
went, and locally throve, until the amateur contests
hare all but vanished.
Now the public is fed up on the performance, and
will have no more of it. "Championship" battles have
dona their perfect work, and the crop of gullible
patrons of prise fighting has dwindled, until the game
no longer pays expenses. A revival may come, for
boxing is popular, and if presented as it should be
will get ample support. For the present, though, the
announcement from the commissioner at Lincoln that
Omaha is to have no more fights for some months
sounds like a certificate that Omaha fight fans have
recovered their sanity.
EUROPEAN DEBTS OR AMERICAN JOBS.
Our esteemed democratic contemporary, whose
owner is. running again for the United States senate,
is dreadfully worried because the United States is
the "greatest creditor nation in the world." Espe
cially is he concerned over the inability of the
European nations to pay their debts to the United
'States. Pleading their cause with tearful and
pathetic earnestness, it says:
Then is one way thoy can pay, and that is in
goods. They must trade with uh, and out of the
proceeds ot the trade reduce their obligations.
But the avowed purpose of the Kordney-Mc-'
Cumber tariff bill Is to shut out imports and give
to the American manufacturer and producer a
monopoly of the home market.
That is exactly what the Fordney-McCumber bill
is expected to do, in addition to raising a consider
able sum of revenue for paying governmental ex
penses. It will maintain the home market for
the home producer.
If we adopt the democratic program of free trade,
and open our markets without restriction to Europe,
we will only be allowed to sell them such goods as
(hey can not produce, while their cheaply produced
wares will close American factories. It is a choice
between employment for American workmen or
European workmen ; between jobs and payrolls here
or on the other side of the Atlantic.
We can afford to be generous with Europe in the
future as we have been in the past, but to help them
we must help ourselves, and we will not help our
selves by destroying our own industries in order that
Europe may thrive and pay off war debts at expense
of American homes.
BORAH AND THE SHIPPING BOARD.
A resolution by Senator Borah, asking that the
United States Shipping board be reduced in number
from seven to three, will probably be the means of
bringing out some further information concerning
the government's place in the world of commerce.
Mr. Borah says three men are sufficient to "preside
over the decrepit days, according to their own show
ing, of this moribund and money losing, money
squandering affair." He may be right, so also may
be those who feel that if the government holds on
just a little longer, it may get back some of the bil
lion and a half it invested in ships during the war.
Others argue that the proper course to pursue is to
charge off the whole affair as a war expense, and
forget it. Then, if any revenue can be derived from
the ships as they stand, it may be devoted to their
upkeep and to the expenses of management. America
needs a' merchant marine, and under present condi
tions will have to provide a subsidy, because the ships
of our chief rivals in the ocean-carrying trade are
subsidized by their governments. This is not at issue
in the Borah proposition, however, and if the Idaho
senator is at energetic in pressing this as he was in
his disarmament resolution, the country may be re
lieved of what la at present a steady drain on the exchequer.
PRISCILLA MULLINS' WEDDING DAY.
Descendants of John and Priscilla Alden are get
ting over-curious. They now propose to make inquiry
as to whether their famous grandmother really rode to
the church on a white bull the day she was wedded.
It were no disgrace if she did; in fact, it would not
be today, although such a proceeding would attract
undue attention. But the colonists had no automo
biles, and fewer coaches or other carriages than were
needed. Priscilla Mullins' people were of as good
stock as any in the colony, and the fair miss deserved
the best fate could offer her. She had tact and wit as
well, for she enabled John Alden to speak for him
self when he had gone to woo for Capt. Myles
Standish, and she so made sure of her future. It was
out of reason that she should walk to the church on
her wedding day, and, in default of the conventional
carriage, and with no suitable horse available, what
more appropriate than a white bull? The bull has
for various reasons figured extensively in history.
Apis was among the major gods of Egypt, and surely
a god might bear a bride to the altar. Just why the
Aldens should get excited at this time over a detail of
the wedding so far removed is not clear. However,'
if they are bound to pursue the inquiry, let them go
to it; the main point will remain unchanged, that
Priscilla was there on time.
BLIND, DEAF AND DUMB.
"Keep your eyes open before you are married;
keep them shut afterward," is the advice of Rev.
John Norris Hall -of Chicago. How to square this
with the generally accepted fact that love is blind
he does not say.
The warning against allowing fancy to -rove after
the wedding is fair enough. So is his suggestion
that there would be less trouble traveling in double
harness if, in addition to practicing domestic science,
both husband and wife should take a course in do
mestic silence. To give no reason for jealousy is
only half to leave unspoken any unjust or dis
agreeable words is another part.
"See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil," is as
good a chart for matrimonial success as for any
other human activity.
Customs receipts reflect improvement in business
conditions, says Elmer Dover. But if the Underwood
law had continued, there would be no customs re
ceipts, for all the stuff that is coming in would come
free of duty.
Japan's acceptance of the nine-power pact and

FOURTH NOT SO SANE.
Soma days may pass before all the returns are in,
bat enough is at hand to show that the Fourth of
July was not observed in that rational manner ex
pected after several yean of intensive promotion for
"sal and tant" behavior. In Omaha it was noisily
and in some respects unpleasantly celebrated. Only
minor accidents were experienced, but this is for
tuitous. Throughout the country many deaths and
fires arc reported. Most of these might have hap
pened anyhow, but soma are atcribable exclusively
to tbe Fourth. The day was perfect hereabouts, so
far as waathtr conditions go, and unusual crowds as
sembled in various places to tskt part in the fes-
Democrats talk of harmony, but the exchanges
between the candidates hold little suggestion of accord.

An Interesting Illustration Is cited
In the Journal of the American
Medical association. A few weeks
o a physiclsn brought before the
Chicago Medical society a blind and
deaf girl. Wllletu Muggins, from the
Wisconsin school tar the blind. To
mke gond the deficiency In thene
two senses, the physiiinn aitld. her
other senses hud been tfi'Valnrmil In

could distinguish different colors by
men. and bv the vibrations of a

which she held In her hands, she
-ould understand his speech. When
skein of wool of different colors

each by name, and she repeated his
It seemed convincing. Hut the
Journal called in Joseph Jastrow,
the distinguished profi'mmr of pay-
cnoiogy or the rnlvemlty of Wla
cnnsln. to comment on the cuse. Dr
Jastrow called attention in the fli-kt
place to the Improbability that there
waa sufficient difference In the smell
or tne dyes to be recognised by any
swnse or smell, no matter how acute,
men ne inouired whether It was
certain that Miss Muggins was com
pletely blind and deaf.
Subjecting her to his own exoerl-
ments, he discovered that while she
could distinguish the color in a
light room, if she were carefully
blindfolded she waa unable to dis
tinguish them. He repeated the ex
periment In a dark room and again
found her helpless. His conclusion
was that though she la virtual v
blind there still remains a remnant
of vision sufficient to enable her to
recognize colors In the light.
As to her deafness he was able to
show that when his own ears ware
topped as completely a possible, he
waa atlil able to hear words spoken
In a low tone 12 feet away. Psy
chology recognises many cases of
hysterical deafness," in which the
difficulty Is in the patient's mind,
not In the organs of hearing. His
Inference was that in this case there
was a least a remnant of hearing
which enabled tha girl to distinguish
words spoken at a distance, although
she might not recognize that she
heard through her ears and not
through her Angers.
It seems a reasonable conclusion.
The reason that the same tests were
not applied by tha doctor who
brought her before the society was
undoubtedly because the results ob
tained were in line with what he
thought' he ought to obtain. So It
seemed unnecessary to examine further.
We all yield to delusions when
they seem to bear out some pet the
ory. The will to believe something
is a terrible mixer ot judgments.
That Luscious Cherry Pie.
Frorn tha Tork Naws-Tlmei.
The mothers are baking cherry
pica these days that set the little
boys to begging for "just one more
slice." There Is only one thing in the
'world better than a piece of cherry
pie and that is another piece, and
the hungry boy with a tooth for good
things to eat is not slow when It
comes to importuning mother for
the second piece of .the luscious
cherry pie she recently took out of
the oven. As the lad sits on the
back doorstep and gets a whiff of
that odor from the oven his olfactory
nerve works like a dynamo and
there is nothing that will keep him
from asking his mother for "another
piece." The mother always accedes
to the request. She may hesitate
and make tome protest, but the
young hopeful stands his ground and
gets the pie.
This is a land of plenty. We roar
about dry weather and we howl about
rain. We roast the heat and we be
rate the cold, but after all this is
the land of good things, and the
American small boy knows it full
The late Bishop Mclntyre of the
Methodist church was a great word
painter. He could describe a straw
berry so the hearer's mouth would
water. If Mclntyre had ever seen a
York county cherry pie and had de
scribed it to an audience he would
have started an uprising.
The Bats of Society. '
From the Minneapolis Journal.
An old-time detective, giving the
results of many years' experience,
claims that criminals lead dual lives
in order to guard their secrets. They
shun the daylight like a bat, but at
night they are in their element.
They frequently live In good neigh
borhoods - where one would not ex
pect to find them. They are crea
tures of the dark, never so happy
as when practicing deceits on the
Criminals are never carefree,
claims the detective, for they live In
perpetual fear of being pounced up
on. At length their nerves break
under the strain and they resort to
drugs or drink in order to keep up
There seems to be considerable
difference of oninion among special
ists as to the nature of the criminal.
Another authority claims that one
must eliminate all idea of conscience
relative to them. They simply give
thought to getting what they want
and escaping detection.
Whether criminals have no con
sciences, or consciences atrophied
through disuse, seems to remain a
disputed point among penologists.
But certain it is that these bats of
society, who love the darkness, have
become bransenly bold and active In
the light of day. They have invoked
some of the latest inventions and
means of escape to aid them in their
nefarious business. Whether or not
they have consciences, they have a
certain keen but blind wit and they
have become a serious problem to

"Truth In Hlalory."
Omaha, July 4 To the Kditor of
The Dae: am writing to call atten
tion to your editorial In The Sunday
Bee on "The Human Bide of His
tory," As you will observe. I am writing
on the 4th day of July, the most
epochal day In our history. I am
wondering ulso If your editorial
thrust at Senator Watson of lleorgia
was made Jim because it happened
to be "Tom Watson of (ieorgt.v"
The statement by Kenntor Watson
llutt you make comment upon to the
effect that (Seorge Washington

the Father of Ills Country was not
Immune to the evil influences of his
environments. You nsk the question
if Senator Wntson hoped to petrify
public attention by making this
statement. I do not think he did.
The statement could hove been made
for the purpose of further delinea
tion and Illustration of a great
truth, that our so-called statesnen,
and even real statesmen tsuch aa we
all concede (ieorge Washlngto to be),
are, after all. human. As much the
subjects of the Inw of human nature
as those who never enter tho lime
light of historic celebrity.
On this historic day we should
come closer to the principles of tho
Declaration of Independence, rather
than be moving farther from them.
In my opinion It was the purpose of
the Georgia senator to call attention
to what aeemed to be a departure
of a oommon sense custom, and also
to emphasise the danger ot recog
nizing the Introduction of a new
custom, that our so-called statesmen,
and real statesmen (If we have any),
are immune to the weaknesses and
frailties of tho common herd that
Is, we common folks.
For one. I am opposed to censor
ing the school histories. The truth
should be told about our public
servants, statesmen and so-called
statesmen, or whatever you are
pleased to call them. A man Is not
necessarily great because he hap
pens to be elected to the senate of
the United States congress, or the
presidency. And, Wen if we occa
sionally should elect really and truly
a great man to either one of the
above places, that IS' no reason why
our historians should attempt to
hand him down to posterity as per
fect. The truth should be told about
characters worthy of places in his

vegetable instead of a flower garden

a little girl, for her marketing when
she is older.
