Though always engaged in commer
cial undertakings. Colonel Albert
Pope, who has Just died, was endowed
with an Insight ao acute and a spirit
so broad that, though he was not
lucky in his later years, the whole
country realizes that a great Ameri
can has passed away and the work of
a great benefactor has ceased.
Colonel Pope before other men saw
the possibilities of bicycle manufac
ture and as quickly saw the benefit
and necessity of good roads in a coun
try of vast wealth and infamously bad
roads. It was not a gleaming dis
covery, but the energy with which he
devoted himself to the propaganda
produced one of the tremendous move
ments of his period. He made ready
the way for the automobile in Amer
lea. Hia labors were potent In creat
ing among the general population a
desire for the advantages of smooth
and hard highway surfaces. His was
a great personality, whose Influence
will for a century be plain on the face
of the land.
Talk of a Democratic House.
Democratic congressmen early, not
to say prematurely, threw out their
banners and opened the campaign for
next year's election. Like all demo
cratic balloons of recent years, this
one soon began to lose Its excessive
Whence Is to come the majority
which was the prematurely boastful
Dredlction of the democrats? The
party cannot make gains in the south
worth counting in advance beaause
there is no fluid vote to move from
one side to the other, and no question
which deeply touches the south, and
besides that the south is democratic
now. The other proline source or
democratic congressmen, tho populous
centers of the northeast, are reasona
bly contented with the administration
and cheerful over the revival of indus
try which closely attends the operation
of the new tariff. There is no sign
anywhere of serious discontent with
the present condition of government.
The condition in the house rather
seems to be that next fall will bring a
successful campaign for republican
candidates, if not a considerably In
creased majority. Off years are not
what they used to be.

is plain that the Interests af
fected will not be relieved, for the
present at least, from the burdens of
the 8 o'clock closing law by any in

by reflex action, will be generally ad
mitted, but the only course apparently
open to them now Is to make the best
of the situation and look to the fu
ture for readjustments that will pro

The flagrant injustice of the
o'clock closing law, so far as Omaha
is concerned, consists in Its projection
in the middle of a license year, cut
ting off a third of the hours of bust
ness which were permitted when the
license was issued, and leaving those
who had paid the 11,000 fee no
redress for this arbitrary deduction
If the test case on the law goes u
to the supreme court, and in th
course of time should be decided ad
verse to the validity of the law,
would still leave the interests affected
to pocket their losses.

In another column we reprint some
f the personal comment Indulged by
ebraska contemporaries on the edi
tor of The Bee Just to let our read-
rs share their perusal. How the la
bored effort of the democratic organs
to incite an insurrection in republican
ranks strikes us may bo illustrated by
the substance of a letter addressed by
the editor of The Beo to the editor of
one of these critic papers ten days
go, as follows:

ment in jour taper directed at me pcr-
eonally, which would Indicate that you

Teachers' conventions are famous in
the same way and for the same rea
son. Theodore Roosevelt's Justly re
nowned remarks on race suicide are
as naught when compared with that
which brings together large numbers
of young teachers of both sexes at
the end of the school year. College
summer terms and conventions of
teachers call for encouragement. If
it all were only courting, it would
still belong among national blessings.
Champ Clark's boast of democratic
unity In congress is the text of much
comment in party papers, which omit
the modification that the democrats in
congress had next to nothing to do.
They bitterly complained because
Payne would not give them a chance
and, again, because the senate finance
committee reported without taking
them into its confidence. Almost any
thing could be united when paralyzed
and puzzled. Yet the democrats were
not united. The Clark argument
seems to flatten under Its own weight.
Of course the corn belt spreads in
time for Omaha to celebrate. Corn is
hot weather and warm soil plant.
Missouri once drained some black land
and raised-112 bushels of corn to the
acre. Virginia drained some or the
same kind and reached over 100 bush
els. The south is certain to be a corn
country when it learns that tho lazy
business of raising cotton is compara
tively unprofitable. The north must
learn to raise corn at a big profit, but

Reports from New England show that th

Perhaps there Is no relation between the
unseemly excess of hot air In circulation
Just now and the extra session of con
gress, but the weather man, who Is onto

temperatures can hardly ignore the output
of ,77,000 published words at both ends
of the capltol aa factors In th esse. It
should be remembered also, that only on
end of th capltol was In active eruption at
a time. Had both ends worked together,
the consequences appals speculation. The
national treasury, too, perspired to th ex
tent of $4,000,000, and countless corporate
bodies nearly as copiously. "I had prepared
a statement showing what th extra ses
sion wa going to cost the treasury," said
Senator Curtis of Kansss, "but did not get
quite to the speechmaklng stage of It. If
I had, It would have prolonged the session
some more and cost the government more
money. As near as I could make out It
was costing Uncle Sam about 1150.000 a
week at the very lowest estimate."
Congress waa In aesslon this time twenty

Add to this sum the thousands of Items of
cost that the government must pay, long
after the session Is ended. but which will

A from 700 to SOO people are killed, twice
aa many Injured, and an Immense amount
of property destroyed by lightning every
year. Prof. Henry, of the weather bureau
think more attention should be given to
protection from! lightning. The professor
has recently prepared a paper on this sub
ject, and It has been published as Farmers'
Bulletin No. 367 of the United States Lie
partmenl of Agriculture. In explaining what
lightning Is and how to prevent buildings
from being struck, he gives an Instructive
elementary discussion Of electricity, con

It Is the practical part of this paper
however, which will appeal most strongly
to the farmers of the country. Prof. Henry
shows how lightning rods that are "in
expensive yet effective" may be put up by
anybody. The following is his list of the
necessary materials: Enough galvanised
Iron telegraph wire to serve for th rod,
a pound of galvanized Iron staples to hold
the wire In place, a few connecting tees.
and a pound of aluminum paint. He says:
"While iron is not so good a conductor
as copper. It Is less likely to cause danger
ous aide flashes, and It also dissipates the
energy of the lightning flash more effect
ively than does the copper."
The methods of putting up tha rods Is

The powers that be In the republican
party are liable to say to Victor Rosen ater.
Come off the perch, we do not want you to
be "it." .
Greeley Leader-Independent (dem.).
Evidently there's going to be a struggle
to eliminate Rosewater from the political
dictatorship of the republican party In Ne
braska, as well as an effort to us Hurkeit'
record on the tariff in retiring him from
the senate. '
Columbus Telegram (dem.).
No politician ever scored a more complete
victory than that which Victor Rosewater
won at the date convention. Certain it
publican leaders had offered the prophecy
that the state convention would declare em
phatically against the Rosewater program.
but when the time came for the fight the
Rosewater opposition dwindled to a minus
quantity. Rosewater did not win the fight
alone. He waa ably assisted by all the
patrooag power which Senator ,'Burkett
wtelda, and with such aaslstance he won
all he could ask for from the convention.
This meana that th Rosewater program
will be the republican program In Ne
braska during the ensuing year at least.
It means that th Burkett and Rosewater
forces will dominate the party as those
forces may please to dominate it. Will the
program remain in force until tho sena
torial contest next year? That Is another
question. By that time Rosewater may
have a change of heart. By that time he
may hav a different candidate for the
Burkett senatorial seat. But for th pres
entwell, for th present th Rosewater
Burkett cavalry la In tha saddle, and with
no foe to face upon the republican field.
Vie Rosewater of Th Bee was pretty
well In evidence at the republican mate
convention, notwithstanding the endeavor
to aldetraek hint.
Hastings Republican (dem.).
All kinds of political rumor ar floating
about th republican camps In Omaha and
Lincoln. One of thee Is to th effect that
Rosewater and his lieutenants have the
pins all nicely act to turn the party In this
state over to the Harrlrr.an Interests that
the railroads and postmasters are working
to bring about the re-election of Senator
Purkett. Now what will th so-calltd
"progressives" do sbcut U?
The Nebraska delegation is Indebted to
Mr. Rosewater. Thank to him th sen

want It to mean. Aa th Irishman said

Th republicans held their atat con

tendance and an enthusiastic service. State
Chairman Hayward Injected the most
ginger Into th meeting by declaring in hla
address: "Nebraska was lost to th re
publicans In atat and nation by th
practice of deceit, fraud, chicanery and
dishonor." To all of which wa would like
to subscribe If w are permitted to add,

August In town: A dreary time
Most fellows call It; dull and slow.
But I Inalte this little rhyme
To say I do not find it so.

At pleasure's call; so I will spend

August In town: A year ago
I wooed her by the summer sea.
Ah. sweet unrest, not quite to know,
And live In love's uncertainty.
But now there Is a goal In sight,
Something that's definite to crown
What one? I deemed a aorry plight
August in town.
I wonder 1f that Bible lad,
Who labored seven years or more
At tasks dictated by Her dad.
Found AugiiHt days In town a bora?
Methlnks he dug away with vlm;
Dog days can't cast a lover down;
it was a privilege to him
August In town.
August In town: The city's strife
Has come to mean new things to me;
An Open Sesame to life.
Promise of things that are to be.
Ere I may claim her for my arms ,
I needs must win a fair renown
