Overdoing the Direct Primary.
Without waiting for the full re
turns that will give us the outcome of
the primary election, It Is quite per
missible to indulge 8 few remarks
about the excesses to which direct
nomination has been carried In Ne
braska. All the arguments which
The Bee used against the open pri
mary have been reinforced and all the
predictions of Its vicious operation
have been verified. The nominations
on the various tickets throughout Ne
braska this year will not represent the
choice of the majority of the respec
tive parties, but, on the contrary, the
candidates will owe their nomination
In many cases to the Intrusion Invited
by law of the voters of one political
party into the primaries of another
The exodus of a large body of re
publican voters from their own party
and their Invasion Into the democratic
party, for primary purposes only,
works both ways. It exerts a direct
Influence by the republican votes cast
n the democratic column and an indi
rect influence by subtraction of votes
from the republican column. The
open primary thus completely obliter
ates party lines and destroys the very
purpose and Intent of party nomina
tions. This evil goes far beyond the
mere form of the ballot, cumbersome,
confusing and disfranchising as it is,
and tends to undermine the very foun
dations of responsible party govern
Sharing -the condemnation of the
vicious open primary comes the muti
lation of our registration law govern
ing the qualifications of voters in our
cities. Here in Omaha hundreds upon
hundreds of voters entitled to partici
pate in the primary were shut out be
cause unable to comply with the re
quirement of presentation In person
at the city hall with two freeholders
to secure certificate of removal or
special registration. The registration
by which the election boards were
governed was made nearly a year ago
and practically no opportunity given
for corrections or transfers for those
who had In the interval removed their
residence from one precinct to an
other or had come into the city since
the last election. It is absolutely lm
peratlve that some permanent ma
chinery be provided by which registra'
tion may be corrected at any time
without forcing the voter to laconvenl'
ence amounting almost to disfran
chisement. The present registration
law as applied to the open primary by
the late democratic legislature is nul
lification of popular government and a
disgrace to the Intelligence of the peo
ple of a great state like Nebraska.
French capital is said to have been
enlisted. in the enterprise of building
electric railways between St. Louis
and Kansas City and the report is re
ceived with much gratification In
1 There was a time when the lnterur
ban electric line seemed to be most de
Blrable under any circumstances as the
best means of affording cheap and
quick transportation, consequently
bringing the rural districts into closer
proximity with the cities and thus
building up great retail centers, with
all the incidental advantages. But to
day some question surrounds the
proposition. The amazing popularity
of the automobile and the correspond
ing Improvement in country roads,
cheaper and better railroad facilities
and the railroad motor car are ele
ments which must be taken into con
sideration now. If the good roads
movement Is carried to its possibili
ties it, with the automobiles, may yet
solve the problem ahead of the elec
tric railway. Good roads themselves
have done1 a vast amount In that di
Of course there is no denying the
fact that we need, especially In. the
west, better interurban facilities and
some electric railways have done Im
mense good in meeting the demands,
but neither can It be denied that capi
tal is a little slower to go into this
sort of investment today than It was
a few years ago. That seems to be
clearly evident in the fact that the
Missouri promoters had to go clear to
France for their money.
The Auto in Politics.
A new machine has taken Its place
In American politics. The automobile
has invaded another, field of useful
ness. It has become the most con
venient means of campaigning which
offlceseekers have yet discovered. Es
pecially is Its serviceability felt In the
closing hours of the contest, when
candidates have numerous speeches to
make at various stands and must
cover the ground in a brief period.
Some of them travel fast enough to
bo classed as "Joy riders" and yet the
returns render such a term applicable
only In half the number of cases. To
the other half It Is anything else than
Of course, like all machines In poll-
tics, this one has its disadvantages as
well as its advantages. For instance,
It does not set well with the hoi polol,
the proletariat, as it were, to have a
man seeking the votes of the common
people, come racing up to their
humble ward meeting in a big, fine,
costly automobile and sometimes the
candidate himself Is brought to a bit
ter realization of this fact after it is
too late. Automoblllng for votes,
therefore, to be successful, must be
done with the keenest discrimination.
In districts where money is plentiful
enough to buy autos the scheme will
work without the least peril to the
politician, but in those districts where
the voters do more walking than joy
I riding and where "wages" are more
general than "salaries" or "Incomes,"
It may be well to leave the auto a safe
distance off, for to steam up to such a
place with bull's eyes gleaming like a
department store fire and horn toot
ing would, to say the least, not be
The automobile, with Its swift
means of locomotion, Is a terror to the
other fellow who is running Just
ahead of you In the waning campaign,
telling the voters what a tough propo
sition you are. Denials seldom over
take canards, but they can make great
speed In autos and thus by getting In
right on the heels of the fellow who
has denounced you, gives the advan
tage of nailing his attack while it is
hot, and of bringing the campaign to
the finest point of Interest at the very
finish. And not only for speeding
candidates from place to place, but for
hauling voters from poll to poll, the
auto must be given a new place as a
campaigner, destined to become the
most popular machine politics has yet
How to Divide the Pay Check.
The average married man may
never have thought that his wife
needed special Instruction In the art
of relieving him of his week's wages,
but Mrs. Ella Flagg Young, superin
tendent of the Chicago public schools,
seems to think so. At least Mrs.
Young has arranged to Install a course
In domestic science, one of whose
chief arts is this very proposition. Of
course, she does It in the name of
household economy, but that may be
the last feature to Impress itself on
the mind of the man behind the check.
Mrs. Young is not an open advocate
of woman's rights, but in her own gen
tle way she is not overlooking any
chance of tossing a right or two
This course is to be placed In the
high school curriculum, so that the
only warning for men Is to make dil
igent Inquiry to ascertain If "she'
ever attended the Chicago . high
schools. Otherwise many of the c
lng married men of Chicago must
"prepare to stand aside" to use the
words of a famous statesman when it
cornea to matters of financing their
own home and personal habits. This
thing of the hubby holding out on
wifey has got to stop, and since the
expedient of wlfey going through
hubby's pockets at midnight has ut
terly failed to meet the issue, Mrs.
Young'B- emergency act will be given
the right-of-way, and there is no sort
of doubt that it will work with un
erring precision. The only hope for
John is to convince Mary that he has
been docked or cut in his wages, In
this way holding out a little more
change for himself. But even that
wll wear threadbare in time. John
it appears,' is about to encounter a
new limitation In the exercise of hjs
manly franchise and, forbidding as
the prospect may seem, no alternative
is in sight at present.
Mrs. Young probably has a dual pur
pose in view, the propagating of the
great cause of housewifery and the
solution of the cost of living problem.
One looks much better than the other
from the girl's standpoint. Certainly
matrimony ought to be encouraged by
such an expansion of the rights of the
wife In the economy of the home, but
whether it will reduce the family ex
penses much for the wife to preside
at the carving of the salary Instead of
the husband Is another question. True,
the plan conceives the systematic ap
portionment of the pay check to the
various needs of the household, bo
that the wife may know in advance of
the week where every cent goes,' In
cluding the few she allows her hus
band, but will not such positive aban
don in the exercise of authority In
time simply transplant the habits of
waste and prodigality from the hus
band to the wife? The scheme in its
embryonic form suggests several pos
sibilities of Improvement.
Judge Alton B. Parxer sees a bril
liant chance for the democratic party
this fall and, like all the other proph
ets, he predicts success on a negative
basis, claiming nothing for his party,
but depending on alleged "sins of
commission and omission" committed
by the other fellow. One would think
the Judge might have learned some
thing by experience.
If the present blanket ballot is re
tained, with Us needless burdens on
election officers, It will be necessary to

to work twenty-four hours at a
Texas senatorshlps and governor
ships vary widely as to money values,
if the campaign expenses of Senator
Culberson and Governor Colquitt may

$27 for a renominatton and Colquitt

nomination. What Is the answer?

of about 13,00e,000, and only a allghUy
larger Increase would now be necessary to
bring the figure up to the 80,000,000 mark.
This result is arrived at by a purely arith
metical calculation, and not by any com
pilation of the figures recently taken.
About 300 nimble-fingered yo'ing men and

is not to be Ignored. The total increase
In corn is more than double the total
decrease in wheat It ought to go far
toward making up the shortage. More
than that, It ought to cut directly Into
the cost of living. For cheaper corn
means cheaper cattle and hoga.' Which in
turn means cheaper table meats next year.
