THE HUNT IN' TRIP

"I AM SORRY," SAYS GILBERT.
The senator a organ thus reporta hia apcech in i
Madiaon, Neb., Tueaday:
"While the aenntor waa makln- 111 regular
speech at Humphrey this Wornlna aeveral iiies
i:ona were asked him from Ihe auillence. The mat
ono wa a lo hi position on Ihe Ksch-t'ummln
hill. TO thi the germtor replied briefly, aoyitiK
that thi Waa a republican ni"iiurn for which h
and aorne of tho other democratic, senators laid
voted. It provided for tl return of thn road to
their owner anil for the aettlement of their nr.
count with the fc-overtiment. It alao provided or
noma ehaiiaes In tho J;iw a to their operation.
These change relnted to the flxInK of rate and
the aettlemetit of dleputea between the companies
and their men,
"Henator Hitnheock anhl that Ihe eourta and
Ihe railroad commission had Interpreted the hill In
such a way aa to rnuke him rejjret having voted
"He had already. In opening hia campaign, '
taken the position that the act should be amended.
" 'It must be ami tided an ns to provide a fairer
way of nettling labor dlp"ta on the roada,' said
the aenator. 'The method of settlement must be
one that will have tho confident of the men them
aelve If strikes are to lie avoided.
"'It mind also be amended so as to fix freight
rates on commodities, q that producers ran get
them to market without spending so large a part
of their value for freliiht.
" 'Producer In Nebraska and other state can
not act to markets now- In many case with some
of their products, freights are so high.'"
It in thua that the aenator donrt the aackclnlh in
referring to the Each-Cummin bill for which he
voted, and to which R. B. Howell, hia opponent, and
all Nebraska are opposed.
The reader will note that almost everyone else
ia to blame for thi law which Senator Hitchcock
eupported and voted for except the aenator himtielf.
First he aaya, "Thia waa 8 republican meaaure
for which he and lome of the other democratic sen
ator voted." Thia ia the first instance in the cam
paign where the aenator has used the republican
party to prove hia Rood intentions.
Next he says, "The court and the railroad com
mission had interpreted the bill in such a way aa to
make him regret having Voted for it" We were
always under the impression that a senator should
understand a law he voted for or airainst, including
the attitude of tho courts pnd commissions regarding-
the law, before the senator took hia position for
or against the law.
Omitted from the list of those he blames for the
Each-Cummin law i ono other important name be
sides his own, that of President WiUon, who studied
and signed the Ka li-Cummin bill and made it law.
Important in the senator's comment, also, to the
Nebraska busines man and farmer, is thj state
ment: "The !" h I'liiiiiiilu l iw nmat be amended so
s In tlx fralahl rules nil c.iiiiiiiixlltie. an that
prodlll' r rilll get thelll lit market without apemV
lug ao Lire a part of their value for freight."
Thi renlilt of the law apparently is the one
which the senator did not f.irewe and for which
the court and the railroad commission ara to blame,
This is the part of the law, preiumabty, that the
aenator "is sorry he voted for,"
8 ii are the producers of farm products and th
smalt and !arre bulnea men of Nrbraaka. They,
tuo, art "sorry," In the senator's latiptjafe, the
l;,h -Cummins' freiuht rate take " lar a part
.f tha value ef thir products for freight." The
lartf and tmail butlnc men. asj farmer of Ne
brs.U hat been "orr" about Ihi fer ln

REGISTER AND VOTE.
No boast an American may make in prouder than
tr at he ia a t'l'iiter of a republic, wherein each citizen
U a sovereign.
Now and then a forciKn potentate, impelled by
political misfortune or other exigency, abdicate hi
intone and abjures lii sovereignty. Every election
see thousands of Americans voluntarily cbdicaU
their overcituty by neglecting to vole.
Election Commissioner Mcliuirh estimates that
at least ,25,000 Omaha citizens, qualified to vote,
will lose that right through failure to be registered.
I If a deapot were to ifisue an oroer that either or
! theae citizen should ha deprived of th fratichiac,
a terrible howl of protest would go up. Yet they
will for one or another of many reasons, or for no
reason, deprive themceivci of the greatest of all
It ia to theae 25,000 that th's editorial is directed.
The Omaha Bee wants every citizen of Nebraska
to vote at the coming election. In that way only can
the true sentiment of the people be disclosed. Par
ticularly ia it desired that every voter in Omaha take
time to register and vote.
Today ia the last day fr registration. If your
name is not on tht! lint, see that it (rut there before
the election commissioner's office cloaca, Kor, you
must be registered or you cannot vote in Omaha,
There is no provision for awcr.ring in the votes
of the unregistered.

THIRST FOR KNOWLEDGE.
An Omaha police magitr&te happily settled a
domestic dispute, the occasion of which wa the
husband's objection to the wife's attendance , at
night fchool. When a woman reaches the age of
42, thought the hutiband, she should not be fourd
attending classes, that being for the younger set, ac
cording to his view. Her justification wa" hat ehe
might learn enough of accountancy to be useful as
bookkeeper in his business.
Not only is the wife's ambition commendable,
but the citizens of Omaha are doing a wonderful
thing in providing the way for her to satisfy her
aspirations. She is but one of many adults who
are receiving excellent training at our city night
school. The day schools are of sufficient im
portance, for they care for the need of the rising
generation, the men and women of tomorrow. A
totally different function is that performed by the
night school. Its largest service is in giving to
men and women of today a knowledge they have
been deprived of, an even chanc with -those they
mutt meet and compete against in the battle of life.
Not all these people are untutored; many of
them are well trained in foreign schools, but lack
understanding of American ways, which they get at
the night school. It is tho thirst for knowledge
that takes them there, and it is a fine thing for
Omaha to know that because of tho foresight of the
citizen and the wisdom of the school direction, this
thirst for knowledge will not go unsatisfied for want
of opportunity to quench it.

Omaha. To til" Kill tor, of Tha
Omaha lice: Is there a word In the
vocabulary which takes the place of
"honor" In the profession of Journal
ism? Is there u. more hated word
among newspaper men, especially edi
tors, than "plagiarist?"
These two fllesllollS I want to ask
the shrewd writer of the World-Her
