The result of tue vote (n Douglas

came at a surprise, even to the demo
crat, who did not hope foe surh a vic

satisfied with any victory, or even a
partial victory. The heavy vote polled
and the enormous democratic majori
ties are an Indication that the voters
were determined to 'do Just what they
did do. . i
The outcome Is due In a great meas
ure to a peculiar combination of the
church and the saloon. The Elmer E.

church people will regret that the
champions of the saloon have won In
this county, but it was through their
votes that, the result was brought to
pass. The labor unions were united
against the republican ticket and their

The lesson of the election to the

a closer organization be effected and
that more Interest be taken in the af

ticket was elected In the county, have

THE OPWM THAFF1C.
Remarkable progress has been made
In China toward the consummation of
the imperial plans for the suppression
of the opium trade. The Imperial de
cree ordering the abolition of the use
of opium, both foreign and native,
within a period ot ten years, was is
sued a little more than two years
ago. The decree provided that the
land under poppy cultivation in China
was to be reduced one-tenth each
year, thus working a gradual reform.
The Chinese people have taken so
kindly to the; decree and have shown
such effort In, observing it that the
authorities have now Issued a decree
ordering the total abolition ot the cul
tivation of poppy at the .end of the
present, year, ;r
In this connection It. la Justice to
China to correct the prevailing Im
pression that opium using Is an original
Chinese habit. It was introduced into
China from India,', and more than 100
years ago the Chinese - sought to
prevent the importation of the drug.
About seventy years ago China became
involved In a war with England be
cause ot Its efforts to prevent the Im
portation of opium from British India.
English power forced . the Chinese to
accept the drug and now all the civil
ized countries are aiding in 'the sup
pression of the traffic. The success
of the efforts will 'mean a loss of $15,
000,000 to $20,000,000 a year to Brit
ish opium dealers, but It will mean a
triumph lor civilisation. , V ;
MIGRANTS AND IMMIGRANTS.
One of the surest Indications of a
return to normal business conditions
in this country Is the reported arrival
of an Increasing number of immi
grants. When the factories were shut
down and Improvements came to a
standstill last September the foreign
workman took his money and returned
to his od home, awaiting the return of
prosperity with Its attendant call for
his services. Now he Is coming back.
Reports show that the number of Im
migrants arriving at American ports in
October was the largest in the year
and steamship companies report that
bookings are already being made for
mar? Immigrants who are planning
to return to the United States within
the next few months. -
It is estimated that 1,500,000 work
men left this country during the twelve
months following the beginning ot the
panic last October. .The xod us was
fortunate In an economic sense, as It
reduced the demand for work and ac
cordingly Increased the opportunities
for employment. This was an Impor
tant factor In lessening the hardships
of the unemployed. The fact that
there Is a promise of an early demand
for the services of that army ot labor
Is moat reassuring.

THIS OBlTEJr APPLE INCIDENT.
Newspapers that are ridiculing the
action of an army court martial at
Chicago in dismissing a private soldier
from the service and sentencing him
to six months' imprisonment because
he refused to throw away three green
apples at ihe order of his commanding
officer have a false appreciation ot the
case. The matter may appear trivial.
The red tape observed In such proceed
ings seems to exaggerate the Im
portance of the Incident, as shown by
the following specifications filed in
Specification 1. In that Private Bern
ard Lelaer, Battery D, Third field artil
lery, while a prisoner under charge of a
guard, did eat green apples after re
peated instructions from his superior
officer, First Lieutenant H. W. Huntley,.
Third field, artillery, not to do no. -
Specification 3. In that Private Lelser,
Battery D, Third field artillery, having
received a lawful order from Sergeant
Maurice P. Keehn, Battery D, Third field
artillery, the aatd sergeant being In tha
execution of his office, to throw away tha
green apples In his possession, did will
fully disobey the same.
Specification S. In that Private Bern
ard Leiser, Battery D. Third field ar
tillery, did falsely state, with Intent to
deceive, to his superior officer, First
Lieutenant H. W. Huntley, Third field
artillery, that he had permission from
Captain C. N. Jones, Third field ar
tillery, to eat green apples.
The dropping or retaining of the
apples did not constitute the offense.
The order to drop the apples came
from the soldier's commanding officer
and the first duty of the Boldler ia
obedience. The entire discipline of the
army depends upon the observance and
enforcement of that rule. Only grow
ing and most dangerous contempt for
the law could bring ridicule on the
court-martial for Its sentence.
CRIPPLINO TEE ELECTION XAW.
The new twist put on the
swearing-in of nonreglstered voters In
Omaha and South Omaha under direc
tion of the democratic city attorney
and democratic' county attorney Is
plainly a crippling of the election law.
Thjs new ruling carried to Its full
limit practically destroys the efficacy
ot registration as a safeguard against
election frauds. "- . . ""'- -
The purpose of requiring registra
tion for elections In cities Is to give
opportunity to check the lists of voters
entitled to exercise the elective fran
chise and to make sure against fraud,
false registration and repeating. The
practice has been for years to make
registration compulsory, with the ex
ception that voters might be sworn In
when prevented from registering by
absence from the city on all the regis
tration days, or by sickness.
For primary elections these, reasons
a'-e strictly enforced, and certainly
the same, If not greater, safeguards
are needed for the regular election
as for the primary election. If anyone
may swear in bis vote at the eleventh
hour without being registered by sim
ply saying that he forgot, or was too
busy, then the necessity ot registering
is entirely removed and the possibility
of fraud tremendously enhanced.
In some cities registration Is abso
lutely conclusive and no unregistered
voter can quality no matter what hli
excuse for not registering. The law
officers ought to give the election
laws a construction most calculated to
Insure fair and honest election, and. If
the present ruling Is correct, the law
ought to be changed to bring us back
to the former practice whereby an un
registered voter must have a valid ex
cuse or forfeit his right to vote.
A member of the coast artillery who
was caught eating green apples while
on a march has been court-martialed
for "conduct to the prejudice of good
order and military discipline In viola
tion of the sixty-second article of
war." The eating of green apples by
the army Is evidently classed with the
wearing of green hats.

Among the mysteries of the day Is the
value of campaign oratory. Its underlying

speaker of the ordinary class wins a deaen

Possibly this is a broad statement, but
the members of one party either keep
away from meetings of the other party, or
they attend with their minds so steeped In
prejudice that appeals to their reason

DISREGARDING BLOCK SIGNALS.
Receat Teats the Effteteaey ef
New Tork' Tribune, '
An Inquiry of much importance to the
traveling publlo haa been in progress dur
ing the last year and- a report on the sub
ject was made a few days ago to the
Railway Signal -association. The Invest!
gatlon related to' the utility of devices de
signed to lessen the chance that one train
will run past a signal which Indicates that
a section of track 4s occupied by another.
Two classes ot apparatus were examined
by a committee, of which W. H Elliott
of the New Tork' Central Is chairman.'
One includes mechanism of various kinds
which gives a warning Inside the cab of
the engine. ' The other embraces ' applt
ancea tor shutting off the power and ap
plying the brakea to a train.
It appears that the cab signal system
has been tried In England and continues In
use on two or three lines there, but as it
Is believed that certainty of action' would
be prevented by Ice and snow, the plan
does not seem to be perfectly suited to the
conditions existing In the United States
In winter. The same objection la offered by
the committee to the automatlo atop. Un
der cover, aa in the New Tork subway,
the tripping' device la thoroughly protected
from the weather; and It la pointed out
that on the elevated roads In New York,
Boston and Chicago there Is less trouble
from Ice and anow than roust be' looked
for on American trunk lines. Though the
oommlttee Is not wholly satisfied with any
of the Inventions referred to it for exami
nation, it recommends that manufacturers
of the apparatus which Is supposed; to en
hance the safety of travel give exhibitions
of lta operations under the authority of
the Interstate Commerce commission.
Several features of this Investigation de
serve notice and commendation. It was
undertaken by aa organisation' closely
Identified with the task of averting acci
dents. On those roads which have the
moat progressive management la the
United Btatea and Europe the block signal
la the chief reliance. Hence, devices In
tended to control the movements of tralna
should be regarded as adjuncts to, not
substitutes for, the block signal. The com
mittee of the Railway Signal association
which haa been studying the subject serves
the Interests of the traveler by manifest
ing caution so Jong as It has occasion to
doubt the auitabllity of the apparatus It
baa considered. . Mechanism which will
work well nine times out of ten and fall
the tenth tune may be worse than nothing
at all. The -vigilance ot the engineer la a
better safeguard. Moreover, the way is
left open for those who diffsr from the
committee to prove their oasu.

The all-night crowd Is a chareoterlstle of
large cities, and New Tork Is iy exception.
Though but a fraction of the daylight
throng, it presents a greater variety of
bohemlantsm at eaae and play. It Is distinct
from the night workers and move In a
circumscribed orbit, with I.ong' Acre square
aa the center. Leaving out the little place,
relates the New York World, the fore
gathering points of Interest would be a suc

At the Metropole Alfred Henry Lewis,

many small cups of coffee, smoke many
cigars and ait up all night, while actors,
prise fighters, Jockeys, detectives, sporting
men and local politicians oome and go to
dlscuaa many topics concerning human life
as they see It with the saga of Wolfvllle.
Here Is the little group of aetors . who
did not go to "the fight.' They are wait
ing for the returns to be brought In by
those who did go. "It's going the limit,"
these first say, as they watch the clock, "or
the bunch would be back."
There Is Rose Beaumont with a collie

But by this time you are not to be fooled
by midgets, and It Is no surprise to you to
recognise Adolph Zlnk, the Lilliputian.
Big men or little men, they are old enough
to stay up all night at the Metropole, and.
so far as you know, they do,' for you leave
the place and saunter up Long Acre square
to Churchill's. 1 ,i
At Churchill's big "Captain Jim" ia at

The place Is packed and Jammed, and
there ia method aa well aa hospitality In
'Captain Jim's" welcoming them In.
"When all the tables are taken," he say.
"I have to stall those I know a while till
the head waiters can find places for them."
"There's a deuce by the window," says a
head waiter, coming up.
"A table for two right over there; you're
looking welll" says "Captain Jlro," not to
the head waiter, but to a couple he haa
been buttonholing- at the door.
Here,, you see, you have learned some

Now I watch the head waiter, ,r one of

if he puts his hand up to the back of his

and so held the newcomers in conversation,
till a place can be found for them.
"If a big table Is vacated I get a sign,
and If there Is a 'deuce' ready he holds
up two fingers. Simple, isn't It?"
Churchill's Isn't open by day. Hasn't
been for months. Its hours are from I In
the evening until B In the morning, for It
la exclusively conducted tor those who stay

those who stay up alt night take their

sugared. . . ,
At Jack's, on Sixth avenue, opposite the
Hippodrome, Jack Dunstan, himself, la fore
most among those who stay up all night.
Jack's works day and night shifts of wait
ers and cooks, for Jack's has a steady and
brisk transient trade by day; but It, too.
Is a favorite place for those who stay up
all night, and all night the place Is full. .
The folks who stay up all night are mln.
tstered to by more than restaurant propria
tors and cabmen. A man who stays up all
night may need a shave. Here's an all
night barber shop. He may get a tooth
ache. Here Is a dentist, whose Illuminated
sign reads. "Open, all night." Ha may
want aervlces of a private detective to fol
low the movement of a faithless love or
a suspected employe. There are several
private detective agencies hereabout that
burn a green , light and also -have Illum
inated signs, "Open all night.".
: The Day and Night bank, over on Fifth
avenue. Is open all night. The Turkish
baths are open all night. But the oddest
of all odd things are the all-night lawyers.
Not only are their offices ornamented with
the ao-statlng sign, but they walk abroad
and go about among the people who stay
up all night to give first legal aid where

LAWMAKING AS AN INDUSTRY.
Too Btaeh Freeeare oa taa Hills Ba-
Boeee Maay Defects. i.
A current magazine In An article on
Lawmaking as aa Industry," presents
some . figures which tend to prove the
statement that the making of lawa la fast
becoming one of the larger industries of
the United States. Every two years, ac
cording to thla article,- the legislatures
of our states, most ot which have bien
nial sessions, paaa some 25,000 separate
lawa. Ia Itog-OT, there were passed by
congress and state legtelaturea 28,446 acta
and 1,574 resolutions. When we compare
this avalanche of what la mainly experi
mental and theoretical law making to the
modest quantity of enactmenta turned out
by the English atstemen, It demonstrates
that the Briton, Is, at least. Blower and
aurer than we. In England, for the whole
United Kingdom, for the ytara itOt-07,
there were enacted but TOO public acts, or
general lawa, and the whole time of
Parliament was practically devoted for
eighteen months of those two years to
considering and passing them.
It la probable that of the more than
35,000 lawa enacted In America during two
years, over 78 per cent were of no general
cope. In England, the time of Parliament
la not taken up with special or local meaa-
ures . and, therefore, the members are
free to give painstaking atudy and thought
to matters of natlqnal Interest. When we
recall that tn the state legislature of New
York In one year there were enacted twice
the number of laws whtch the English par
liament enacted In tha same time, it gives
ample evidence that our law makers are
very busy men.
It ia often 111 considered - publlo clamor
which ' forces Our legiaOaturea to enact
laws that are unnecessary and sometimes
harmful. Our legislation, as these 25,000
lawa In two years clearly show, must be
hurrldedly and thoughtlessly discussed for
