The report Is current in the east

little political gossip that Mr. Hryan
Is soon to come out in the open for
Champ Clark as his choice for the
1912 presidential nomination. This
expectation, it is more than probable,
will be disappointed, for Mr. Bryan
would be doing something he has
seldom, If ever, done, taking sides
before the entries are all in, and play
ing a favorite as against the field.
Ilia usual practice ia simply to indi
cate the candidate or candidates who
appear objectionable to him. This
he has already done with reference
to Governor Harmon by giving him
notice "to prepare to stand aside,"
and the Ohio governor might hare
company on the Bryan blacklist if
some other plainly labeled representa
tive of "the Interests" ia projected
Into the democratic arena. How Mr.
Bryan went after Judge Parker in
1904 and hammered him so hard in
advance of nomination that the dam-
' I7l fmilH nnt Ha Inter Pan.li.Ai1
by Mr. Bryan himself taking the
stump in his behalf, will be readily re
called. In the convention that nomi
nated Tarker, Mr. Bryan threw harm
lens boquets at several of the as
pirants and played safe by shooting
In the air and recording his own vote
for Senator Cockrell of Missouri, who
was not a candidate, nor even con
sidered presidential timber.
An Interesting complication for Mr.
Bryan, however, is quite among the
possibilities. He will doubtless want
to be a delegate to the contention
and if he Is selected will have to go
under the Implied Instructions of the
presidential preference rote in the
primary. To see Mr. Bryan In the
convention Instructed to favor some
one to whom he is personally opposed
requires a real stretch of the imagina
tion. Nebraska, for example, for Har
mon, with Bryan heading the delega
tion, would be the Irony of fate. Yet
in the whirligig of politics stranger
things than that have happened. Only
the threat of aomethlng like that.
therefore, is apt to force Mr. Bryan
to enlist behind some one candidate
as against all others In advance of the
Health and the Resorts.
It la generally conceded that the
chief reason why health resorts are
beneficial to health is that people who
go to them follow a certain prescribed
code of rules calculated to restore
them and keep them In good physical
condition. If they would observe the
same system of living at their homes
they probably would not hare to go
to resorts. As a rule the resorts are
In the same latitude and altitude as
their resident places and differ in no
material respect except that their
managers have reduced to a science
the method of daily living and are
able to get people to adopt their
This Is saying nothing against the
resorts, nor that they are not needful
and helpful' places. They are. be-
I cause people will not do without them.
A busy man, for Instance, so long as
be stays at home, where he Is thrown
in daily contact with his business, Is
going to pursue the same old routine
each day, and if be Is suffering from
nervous disorder, of course he is not
likely to make much improvement.
He has to be removed from his work
before he will do what is necessary
to build him up. The resort Is the
city of i-efuge to him. He goes there,
follows out a certain routine for a
few days or weeks and returns all
sound and ready for another tug at

but not worrying hard; who are tem
perate In their seal and who sleep in
stead of think when they lie down at
night after a strenuous day. The
same amount of care and precaution
crowded into a brief space of time in
an effort at restoring an overworked
system. Judiciously distributed over
the year, would probably do more
good in the way of preventing than
it could under the other circumstances
in the way of curing.
Unselfish Respect for Law.
The people of the United States are
in the midst of what might be called
a period of political transition. Change
and experiment are In the air. New
plans and systems for improving the
government are constantly being pro
posed. Here is a man with a scheme
which he believes will enlarge the
measure of popular power, as most
agree that whatever will do that will
prove to be the best law.
But one thing is necessary before
any system of reform will accomplish
perfect Improvement, or anything ap
proaching it. People must have an
unselfish respect for law. Now, It
would offend the average American
citizen to tell him that he does not
have that, yet there are Indications
that he has not All over the country
men are viewing the law from per
sonal and selfish standpoints, and a
great many of our laws, state and na
tional, to say nothing of municipal,
are the direct result of selfish schemes
of Individuals, or companies of many
individuals. They are Interested In
the enactment of a certain law. Why,
because of their high, unselfish re
spect for the law? No, to serve some
And so It Is with the administration
of the law. Nothing, perhaps, to give
unduay alarm, bat a laxity at times
and a favoritism at other times.
through all of which selfishness Is the
prevailing element that rebuke pious
claims of high-headed patriotism and
serve to unmask the truth that dis
respect for law Is entirely too common
to make possible the perfect operation
of any system of reform. Before pil
ing up the reforms a work should be
done In clearing away this debris of
selfishness and evasion of law so as to
make way for a strong foundation of
unselfish respect for every law. Im
partial and rational enforcement of
the law is one of the ways to do that.
The Return of the Boosters.
A delegation of the leading business
men of Omaha has just completed a
Journey across the state In the inter
est of closer trade relations between
the metropolis and the smaller towt9
of Nebraska. In general the trip was
marked by the customary demonstra
tions. Everywhere the "trade boos
ters" went they were met by the most
cordial welcome and given the roost
hearty assurance of friendly interest.
In this regard the journey differed
only in degree from other similar
Journeys that have been taken by
Omaha business men, but it' is one
feature that la most interesting. A
better object lesson in the growth and
development of Nebraska could not

sections of the state the welcome ac

which President Vint found himself when

had been violated. He, like Madero, had

Neither the administration of his former
Idol, Benito Juarei, nor that of President
I.erdo proved satisfactory to the hero of
Puebla, Juarez had performed a great
service in striking down ecclealatical
tyranny and setting up Ideals of demo
cracy to Inspire his countrymen, but aa
president of the republic he was imprac
ticable, vacillating and feeble. Mexico
made no material progress under his ad
ministration. The government of Presi
dent Lerdo wae corrupt, lawless .and op
pressive and soon became Intolerable to
patriotic men like porflrlo IMa.' With
the death of Juarez on July 18, 1872, Dial
sheathed his sword snd retired to his
farm in Oaxaca, hoping for better things;
but the rebellion against the rule of Presi
dent Lerdo ended only when General Dlfta
entered the city of Mexico at the head of
12,000 soldlera on Novemher it, K1. In
the following spring he became president
with the sanction of congress.
The Mexico of Juarez and Lerdo was
bankrupt and cursed with brigandage. Its
bonds sold for ten cents' on the dollar. Ex
cept in the large cities there was no
security of life, no protection of prop
erty. The central government was with
out real authority, and In distant states
and territories it was openly defied.
When Porfirlo Diaz entered upon the
presldoncy the national income wa only
$19,776,638; by 1907 it had reached the
sum of $114,286,122. Mexican 4 per cents
rose to 97 on foreign exchanges. In 1884
8$ the Imports were $28,786,684 and ex
ports $48,670,845, while In 1909-10 Imports
had increased to $194,864,647 and exports
to $2W),0og,2S8, In 1876 there, was only
407 miles of railway in Mexico, and after
thirty years of the presidency of Porflrlo
Diaz there were 15,000 miles, valued at
$1,S24,272,!1. In 1909 these railroads
carried 85,652,756 passengers and 9,756,-
869,153 tons of freight, and their receipts
were $01,187 794, as compared with $2,564,
890 earned by the railroads in 1876. There
were 4,420 miles of telegraph in Mexico
when Diaz became president; the tele
graph and telephone lines of the repub
lic in 1909 extended over 20,000,000 miles,
bringing the most remote parts of the
country Into touch with the capital. In
1878 the port office department carried
4,709,750 pieces of mall and .in 1909 the
number carried , was 191,744,906, and a
revenue of $4,216,848 was derived from
the service. In public Improvements great
sums of money have been spent, no less
than $120,000,000 on the ports, harbor chan
nels and the ..lighthouse service. Twenty
nine years ago Mexico had only one bank
and it waa maintained by foreign capital.
In 1907 it had. thirty-two national banksS

were 4.715 publi'o '. schools In the country

"Mexico," said President TMas recently,
"was once without a middle class, but she
has one tiow." And he added: "It Is a
great comfort to mo In my old age to feel
that the future of Mexloo Is secure at last."
The retirement of Porflrlo Diss Is brought
about by this middle class, educated In the
public schools. Other presidents whose
rule provoked insurrection - were drtven

his wise and resolute rule. Its abuses may
seem to loom large' in a day of publicity
and agitation for popular government, but
its advantages, and even Its virtues, have
been consplclous and splendid. Porflrlo
has laid the foundations of the republic
deep, and he Is cnltilcd to the enduring
gratitude of the Mexican people, "One of
the great men to be held up for the hero

OMAHA May 27. To the Editor of The
Bee: In answer to the article over the
names of John M- Guild, commissioner
of the Commercial club, and Will A.
Campbell of the publicity department cf
the same organization, who are members
of the Ad club, criticising Henry Goring,
president of the Ad club, and myself, for
advocating a society for home protection
and calling a meeting for that purpose, I
wisn to state that those mon taka oc
casion to crltlclsu. the Ad club for having
obtained the passage through the last
legislature of a bill for the commission
form of government. The greatest thing
the Ad club has ever done waa to secure
the paasage of that bill.
Then they complain because the
newspapers stated that the people were
going to organize a Home Protection as
sociation for putting down crime and pre
venting holdups and murders in the com
munity, when the police department had
admitted, through the papers, that they
were unable to cope with the situation
for lack of fund. They call this bad ad
vertising for Omaha. If they call this
bad advertising, what do they call the
dally articles in the newspaper an
nouncing the murders, holdups, the ran
sacking of houses in broad daylight, and
Other crimes, and the helplessness of the
pollcet Is that good- advertising? And
If the people offer their services to stop
this kind' of business and advertise that
fact In the newspapers, Isn't that the
kind -of advertising to be put in. the
papers to counteract the dally list of
holdups? I presume these' sama self-appointed
dictators would say that if the
city was burning up and the fire depart
ment was unable to cope with the con
ditions and unable to quel eh the fire and
save the lives and property of the people
that it would be bad advertising to let
tha world know that some of the pa
triotic citizens of the community were
willing to volunteer their service to help
the fire department out in Its emergency.
I am not blaming the other parties who
lgned the so-called protest with J. M.
Guild and Will Campbell, because It has
been the custom in the Commercial club
to throw the responsibility for most of
these things upon their hired men. I am
satisfied if a meeting waa culled of the
entire membership that as a. body they
would condemn this protest. Neither
Henry Gering nor I am to blame for the
mention of the Ad club or any otuer or
ganisation In connection with this move
ment. There was not a word stated in
that call about the Ad club or any other
commercial body except that the meeting
might be Ijeld In the Commercial club

mentioned In my written call nor in any

men. The enlistment of mlnutemen as
home guards In the metropolis of the state
I'aa a dcrldolly wild and woolly aspect.
Grand Island Independent: Grand Island
today Is happier In mood brcauss It Is
able truthfully to say that It ha never
In Its history applied for membership In
the anvil chorus against Omaha, and It Is
doubly happy as confidently to believe
that Omaha has always been one of Giand
Island' beet friends.
Auburn Republican: One thing mav be
said to the credit of Lincoln and Omaha
dally paper. In tholr descriptions of tha
housing of the necro murderer, Johnson,
In the state ponttentlnrr last Friday, they
did not dwell on the gruesome detnlls of
tho scene and pander to sensationalism
and morbid curiosity. The descriptions
were brief and enne and barely enough to
Five the full news value of the tragedy.
It is a condition of Journalism that la
gratifying, to say tho least.
Phelton nipper: We wish Phelton had
more of the Omaha spirit. Ona seldom
finds such a co-operative bunch as the
men who graced our little city with their
presence. The unselfish spirit Is not
amongst them. They nncst for Omaha,
for they have that fnrslphted vision, sucli
ns few cities possess, of what is good for
Omaha In general Is pond for them Indi
vidually. This Is the spirit that makes
ine villages into cities and cities Into
metropolises. It Is the spirit that wins
for man for clly for state for nation.
And If this excursion of the Omaha boost
er has done nothing more than to show
to Nebraska people that they should "Get
Together and Bocst for Nebraska," It has
been profitable. But the excursion has
dene more. The business men of Omaha
have been more closely In touch with their
customers they have established new
trade relations, found new friends, warmed
up old frlenriHhips and developed ' new
field. Let us hope that the spirit of
Omaha the city that does things that ac
complishes' results let u use this spirit
and make Sheltoh bigger, brdader and bet
ter. The Retort Emphatic.

A halo of power adorned her head
Her eye were oft with the mother

To rob my child of it sole defense.
Or from the treasures that he has won.
To say to him 'Helpless go you lieno!'

Wild bees from the wood, In. armored
