Madero'i Entry Into Mexico City.
As described In the dispatches,
Madero s advent Into Mexico City had
all the aspects of a triumphal entry.
As a spectacle it was quite command
ing, the more so because it came long
after the tumult of war had died
down and passions of the moment hsd
had time to cool. The army and airs
that accompanied the "conquering
hero" were those of peace, not war.
The triumph was consummate, since
the vanquished Dlai had sought exile
in a foreign land and all the forces
remaining were submissive to the
But in the strain of patriotic cheers
a discordant note is to be heard. In
the impassioned "Viva Maderos"
lurks, It is said, the rumor of assassi
nation and another revolt. In the
ruins of the overturned republic the
old flames still flicker, the combustible
elements still smolder. And Madero
cannot be Insensible to all this.
Neither can de la Barra, nor any of
the other big mn In Mexico, who have
assumed the reins of government and
undertaken Its reconstruction.
It will take the best combined pow
ers of the new leaders to bring all ele
ments into submission and co-operation.
To do this properly they must
gain control without antagonizing, If
possible. One of the penalties of suc
cess of a revolution In 8 country like
Mexico Is the recurrence of the spirit
of discontent In the form of a mob
Instead of an army. When Madero
and his government have fully mas
tered the situation and demonstrated
their ability to keep the reins steady,
the apprehensions on this side of the
border will be fully allayed.
It Is to be hoped that if system-
kaid will succeed In his effort to per
suade the government to throw open
the 66,000 acres within old Fort Nio
brara for agricultural use. The gov
ernment has abandoned the reserva
tion for military uses and the land will
lie idle and unoccupied unless some
such disposition as that proposed In
Judge Klnkald's bill is made of It. The
land it rich and offers excellent oppor
tunities for farming. It scarcely
seems possible that the government
should hesitate, much less refuse, to
give Its sanction to the Kinkald plan.
Not for six years have troops been sta
tioned at this fort and there Is no like
lihood now that they will be stationed
there again. The government has
long ago determined it does not need
it for the army.
Nebraska, however, needs every
acre of arable soli within its boundary
for agricultural purposes, and If this
reservation Is thrown open to pur
chase and settlement, with 'i 60 acres
to the family, It would make room for
at - least 400 families of settlers.
Judge Kinkald should have the help
of the whole Nebraska delegation to
bring this about. He has already en
listed the attention of Secretary Fisher
of the Interior, and Land Commis
sioner Denett, both of whom are said
to be favorably Inclined to his propo
sition. Joy Biding a Paradox.
In Masaschusetts joy-riding becomes
a paradox If the culprit is caught. The
legislature has made Joy-riding a fel
ony, and to prove that the legislature
was neither Joking nor bluffing a Judge
has sent the first offender to the peni
tentiary for one year.
Under the Massachusetts law, as in
most places, Joy-rldlng is defined as
the act of taking another's automobile
without consent and using it for a
period of time suiting the pleasure of
the person. ' Usually, or, at least, very
often, it Is a chauffeur who does this,
as It was In the case of the man sent
to prison. The court laid down a very
good precept In that case, defining the
act as simply stealing. For. he
pointed out, not, only did the chauffeur
take his employer's machine without
the latter's knowledge or consent,
running the risk of damaging It,, but
since the machine consumes a certain
amount of costly substances for its
operation the chauffeur might just as
well have gone into the owner's house
or garage and stolen them or their
equivalent In caBh.
Of course, many impulsive persons
will find fault with this law and Its
enforcement, but the chances are Its
enforcement will put an end to joy
riding in Massachusetts, and if it does
that will be Justification enough. , And
such a law might not be a bad one to
adopt In other states. Joy-riding,
notoriously, leads to a good many serl
ous automobile accidents, to say noth
ing of being a tempting first step to a
Anon at a Profession.
Chicago police purport to have in
their possession evidence of an organ
Ized system of arson as a means of
livelihood. A merchant who commit
ted suicide soon after his store was
burned is Bald to have confessed that
he was approached by two men offer
ing to set fire to his place of business
for a price, that he engaged them and
paid part of the money down and was
to have paid the balance when he re
ceived his insurance.

than open-handed murder, for It strikes
recklessly not alone at property, but at
human life, without affording the
victims tne least opportunity to
protect, themselves. But even that,
insidious as It Is, is not the most dan
gerous feature. That Is to be found
In the peculisr nature of the crime,
which is a subtle species that deals
Its blow in the dark and under the
disguise of accident.
It Is to be hoped that If a system

police will succeed In uncovering It

the law's reach, where it may visit

The Rev. I. F. Roach, the member
of the State Roard of Education whose
claim for $50 for delivering a com
mencement address at thePeru Nor
mal has been rejected, Is explaining,
and Is entitled to the benefit of his
I was Invited by the class of 1911 of Peru
normal to deliver the baccalaureate ser
mon there, an a pastor. I went as a pas
tor. There was no arrangement whereby
I waa to get anything for the service ren
dered. I did give th president a memoran
dum of my expense In reaching Peru. It
amounted to $2.ftS for railroad fare and 3
for livery hire. That bill waa not presented
by me to the state board, but was given
to th president of th normal. I am not
seeking pay or reimbursement of expense
as a member of the board, but as an Indi
vidual, a pastor called to deliver a sermon.
It is usual to (five pastors who deliver a
baccalaureate address an honorarium. That
may account for the V in the bill which
I suppose has been filed by the president
of the Peru normal. Other pastors hav
gone to state institution and have received
honorariums for their service. I delivered
the baccalaureate sermon for th School of
Agriculture and was paid for It. There
was no question there. I was there es a
pastor and not as representative of th
State Board of Education.
That explanation is doubtless
enough to satisfy the scruples of any
conscientious minister of the gospel.
It will be remembered, too, that Gov
ernor Shallenberger while chief execu
tive of the state likewise exacted com
pensation for delivering commence
ment addresses, and, of course, he
took the money, not as governor, but
as a private citizen. Cases have also
been known where lawyers In the leg
islature have taken "honorariums,"
not for putting bills through or for
killing them, but merely as attorney's
fees for legal advice.
Some of our amiable contemporaries
are again setting themselves up as
mind readers for the purpose of chart
ing the future moves on the political
chessboard In Nebraska. This at
tempt at clairvoyancy elicits complaint
from one source that "it is all a bit
confusing," and the question, "Will it
not be well to have the truth told
about these political Intrigues?" To
this the Lincoln Journal responds,
'Certainly. That is what everybody
wants," and then goes on to Justify Its
political fiction fancies by admitting
the Impossibility of telling the truth
about one man's plans and purposes,
the things another has in the back of
his head and the schemes of the nu
merous candidates for the numerous
If open confession is good for the
soul, that probably offers the Journal
some relief, but it means simply that
it, and other political pipe-dreamers,
will go right on constructing card
houses to be blown down and basing
on mere gossip the minutest detail of
what public men are going to do with
out even giving them a chance to affirm
or deny. For these political clairvoy
ants no tale is so preposterous, and
no yarn so far-fetched, aa to require
verification from the only people who
could verify. Perhaps It is a harm
less pastime, although occasionally
some real damage is done. But the
chief sufferers and victims are the
newspapers, themselves, that make it
a business to manufacture fakes sure
to be quickly exploded, and to react
upon their own heads.
Contradictory Trust Magnates,
John W. Gates may have strayed
from the basic facts in his Steel
trust testimony, but somehow It
raises a question In his favor for a
certain class of publications singularly
predisposed toward coropration In
terests to agree so uniformly on the
unreliability of what he said. Of
course, it may be simply the honest
conviction of these organs that
where they contradict one an
other it was Mr. Gates and not
Mr. Gary who erred In his statement
of fact as to the modus operandi of
the Steel corporation In Its acquisi
tion of the Tennessee Coal and Iron
and other business transactions. The
suspicion will obtrude itself, however,
that the undisguised candor of Mr.
Gates has something to do with It.
We hear a chorus of assertions
that "Gates told nothing new, noth
ing but what has been retold many
times." Well, the record Is not so
clear as to that. And whether he
told nothing new or not, what he has
told Is very likely to form a vital fac
tor In the determination of the regu
larity of Steel trust expansion it
prosecution follows congress's investi
gation. It must be of some conse
quence or so much pains would not
now be taken to discredit It It al
ways creates an Interesting situation
when two trust magnates fall out and
go to disputing each other In a pub
lic bearing, as Gates and Gary have
done. More or less curiosity has
been aroused by their conflicting
statements and It ought .to be appeased
as It will be, by fuller revelations.

Yet, it does seem strange that the
Tennessee Coal and Iron company, ab
sorbed by the steel trust to save a
New York bank, was bought for $11,
000,000 more than It was worth, when
the bank's obligations amounted only
to $5,000,000 or $6,000,000.
Some folks have professed to be

no other democrat in his day should.
But what can there be In Mr. Bryan's
long public career that would lend
substance to this theory?

President Taft has been quoted as dis
liking the recent rulings of the I'nited

that he waa asked whether he thought the

Gary of the Steel corporation, and that
he replied, "No, they are Just beginning
to make it useful." This evidently kills
th other report. It also comes close to
th truth of th matter.
General Diaa and Francis Joseph.
General Dlax's exile from Mexico .Is ob
served with more than ordinary interest by
Emperor Francis Joseph of Austria-
Hungary. Maximilian, whose career as
emperor of Mexico was brought to a tragic
end a generation ago, largely because of
the military talent and prowess of Por-
flrlo Diax, was Empen Francis Joseph's
brother. Dlax was not personally responsi
ble for the execution of Maximilian, but
h approved of It. Th Austrian emperor
and Dlax are very nearly of the same age.
Concerning the Straw Vote.
Some progressive newspapers in N
braaka are taking a straw vote on the
next presidency. Roosevelt has a big lead
among republicans and Bryan an equally
big lead among democrats. If either of
these distinguished men has any Idea of
being a real candidate, he will put a stop
to this poll. The straw vote is horribly
misleading, as has been shown over and
over again. Whether It is one way or
another depend a great deal upon the
Influence under which It is taken.

"The most august assemblage In the

The speaker would have a proviso that

The money that will be expended on the

the same period of time. In 1904, the total

The official reporter has to know every

he cannot stop to ask who I speaking or

by voice, so that they do not even hav to
turn their heads when an interruption

Heresy Trial Attract Slight Pabtle
. New York World.
The heresy trial In the Presbyterian
church, by th slight attention It attracts
out?de the denomination, well measures
the progress of public thought away from
the subtleties of theological controversy
In twenty year.
Where the trial of Dr. Brlgg In 1S9I
profoundly tlrred religious opinion every
where, now only a email element feels
deeply concerned as to whether the doc
trine of the ministers arraigned are or
are not "a departure from the tandarde
of th church," or takes sertoutly the al
legation that views on sin, salvation and
atonement not strictly In accord with the
ancient tenets are "treason to Jesus
Christ." What popular interest the trial
ha had a an Indication of the extent to
which "the fires of Calvin glow" In an
age when Insistence on the letter of old
creeds has been largely relaxed.
