A CONSTRUCTIVE LADOR PLANK.
Tht rrpubliran Utt platlorm contain a "labor''
plank which rcprcmntu a forward and proreMiva
utep in a direction (!eired by all of tht people. It
recommends to tht president and tht conicretn: V
Tht eiiHctmi'iit of nationul Ipfrinlution deoitrned'
to obviate thu recurrtnee of nuch disastrous indus
trial warfare to which the country ia now nun
jttrtcd, care boinjf taken to do lull Justice to the
arencrul public, employers and employes.
This is an advunced step and a frank stand, yet
tha questions involved are of so ftrave concern aa to
make the need fur remedy apparent to everyone.
Nothing lesn than the aulvution of the United States
itself is involved in the creation of an effective and
comprehensive plan to avoid strike in national pub
lic utilities which are so closely interlocked with the
lift of the nation.
Attorney General Dauherty called attention to
the Ions of $75,000,000 in the fruit crop of Califor
nia within the last few weeks, due to insufficient
transportation as a result of strikes. Thia loss, vatt
as it is, serves merely to typify rather than to give a
fair estimate of the nation's total loss due to the
ktrfke. The total can never be calculuted, but will,
even if stopped today, run into untold millions, and
involve vast Ioks of fortunes, health and even life. ,
It must not be understood that the republican
platform condemns all strikes, or seeks to prohibit
them. It condemns and see'KS to prohibit only "such
disastrous industrial warfare to which the country is
now being subjected," namely the railroad and coal
atrikes, or any others that have the power to cause a
national calamity. Lesser quarrels between em
ployer and employe, usually of a local nature and
not far reaching in their effect, are not referred to
or considered in the republican platform.
Sound labor sentiment itself favors such legisla
tion. It realizes that it can not be allowed to have or
use such power as would destroy the nation any more
than should tha opponents of labor be permitted to
have or use such power as would destroy labor.
Usually sane laTjor sentiment dictates that a strike
stop short of national calamity, but the shopmen's
strike has not done so. According to Attorney Gen
eral Daugherty the shopmen's strike has brought the
country to the brink of a precipice, and the country
baa had a glimpse over this brink. There must be
estoppal of any force that has the power to drag the
country to the brink of disaster.
It required courage for' the republicans of Ne
braska to adopt a frank and forward looking "labor"
plank, The opportunity for the democrats to mis
represent this plank, and to attempt to use it to
curry favor' with unionism was obvious, yet the sal
vation of tha country demanded that some one lake
the lead somewhere, so the republicans of Nebraska
have courageously pointed the way.
On the labor situation as on other vital issues,
the democratic platform in Nebraska evades, wobbles
and straddles. The democratic platform says:
We pledge ourselves to the promotion of in
dustrial peace at home through measures that shall
deal justly with capital and labor, placing always
the rights of menhood and womanhood above the
rights of the dollar. ,
The American farmer, the American business
man, and the American laborer do not merely want
peace. They want to find a sound solution of the
question and thus avoid disastrous conflicts in the
future. The republican candidates stand squarely
for this princHe. The whole country is coming rap
idly to the position taken by the republican party in
Nebraska, and conscious of the righteousness of their
cause Nebraska republicans do not hesitate to point
WHAT FOR BREAKFAST?
Eat hearty! That is tha advice of physicians in
response to a questionnaire on whether brain work

Quite a blow, this, to those who pride themselves
on confining their morning repast to a couple of nib
bles and half a sup. A vindication, too, for the man

ALL IN THE DAY'S WORK.
To tat dinner out night in Florida and tht very next
night in California stems almost incredible, although
Lieut. J. II. Doolittle did this vtry thing. In lest than
22 hour from the time he set off from Pablo Beach,
near Jacksonville, he alighted at San Ditgo. Thia
comta near an instance of a man being In two placet
at the same time. Once this means of transportation
comes into general use, great change in htfman hab
its are due.
Some years ago the nation watched in awe the
start of Cal P. Roger on a flight from the Atlantic
to the Pacific. Every hopeful expectation wa dis
appointed by tha mishaps that befell hi airplane.
While all had hoped to see him cover the distance in
b few days, it dragged into weeks. And now an
army aviator accomplished the feat in les than a sin
gle day without arousing the slightest sensation. At
an average speed of 101 mile an hour, with only one
stop in mid-continent, he flew 2,275 miles. The lieu
tenant himself treated tht txpedition as simply an
incident in his dally work.
What doe thl phlegmatic old world. require to
give it nerve a flutter and send its blood thrilling
through its veins? The marvels of scientific and me
chanical achievement are nowadays taken as a mat
ter of course. If a man speed through the air at
such B rate as almost to annihilate distance, it is lit
tle more than a commonplace. Another aviator set
out for Brazil and yet another goes on his way to
circle 'the globe, and no one think much about it.
There was an ancient king who defied all attempt
to make him laugh. Ill luccessora defy all comers
to surprise them.
THE CONSTITUTION AND THE RAIL STRIKE.
The true aim of the Dougherty injunction against
the railroad atrikera is to protect American rights,
not to limit or annul them. Announcement by the
attorney general that he has no intention of invad
ing the constitutional guarantee of free speech and
lawful assemblage was to havt been expected.
Modification of the terms of the sweeping re
straining order is to be expected next Monday when
the motion for a permanent order come up in court
at Chicago. Those provisions, however, that are nec
essary to the pacification of this labor dispute appear
to be invulnerable. The authority under which Mr.
Daugherty moved is thus set forth in his original
But even though this widespread violence, the
destruction of property, this threatening of star
vation, and the hazarding and taking of human
life, as set forth in this complaint and situation
were not present,, no organization, no matter what
its purpose or how powerful its plans or pursuits,
can interfere with government and interstate com
As announced by the present chief justice of
the supreme court of the United States, in the case
of Thomas vs. Cincinattie Railway company, 62
Fed. 803, when he was a justice of the United
States circuit court of appeals:
"Certainly the starvation of the nation can
not be the lawful purpose of a combination, and it
is utterly immaterial whether the purpose is af
fected by means which are, lawful, or otherwise."
Labor leaders, doubtless well advised by their
legal staffs, have never pressed a final decision on this
point. The striking shopmen now give signs of a
new eagerness for settlement, and the railroads them
selves are not as solidly opposed to conciliation as at
one time. It would be almost too good to be true if
a voluntary agreement between the opposing forces
should now be on the way. - '
SHOT FOR LOVE OF FLOWERS.
On his way to work in the morning a young man
paused to pick a flower from the garden of a neigh
bor. What pleasant thoughts were in his mind as he
fixed the blossom on his coat lapel no one knows
all that is sure is that the owner of the garden looked
on with disapproval. When, late at night the youth
returned, the dispute was taken up, a shot was fired,
and the interloper fell wounded.
Others before this have been the victims of the
love of beauty. The mellow colors of the late bloom-
ing plants are indeed tempting to one with an eye
for nature. The asters, the marigolds and the other
old-fashioned flowers are now at their best. Here
lies temptation, but. to admire is not necessarily to'
pluck them from their stems. In the garden of Edten
Eve was secure until the apple was picked from its
The mere sight of these gorgeous beds gives pleas
ure. To have planted the seeds from which they
sprung is a most happy recollection. One likes to
take some of this color indoors, but after all, it is most
attractive with the green background of the open.
It is easy to understand how fierce resentment
could arise at an invasion of a flower bed. These
blooms are like children to many gardeners. It is
easy, too, to realize the temptation of a passerby to
make some small part of th.t beauty hia own, to carry
it into the commonplace workaday world.
Each of these sensations art gentle one. Both
parties to the dispute were wrong. A garden is a
pretty thing, but hate Is most ugly. He who raises a
flower enriches life. Those who pasa by may freely
feast their eyes, and only the grosser senses require
actually to possess tht substance.
