Ai to Applause.
The most beautiful and Impressive
street pageantry ever put upon the
streets passed the eyee of more than
100,000 people in Omaha, accom
panied by the blare Cf trumpets and
strains of music, without eliciting ap
plause enough to note. This dots
not mean that the spectators were
Inattentive or unappreciative. It
means that our people are temper
mentally disposed to take things as
they come as If due to them; that
they seldom get wildly excited and
that they manifest their approval
and delight without spasms of band-
clapping or outbursts of enthusiasm.
These obserratlons corroborate
the comment made on the greeting
accorded to President Taft that its
cordiality is not to be measured by
the noise. Answering the charge
that the reception of tlio president
in Lincoln was a "frobl," the Journal
of that city declarea:
Lincoln pt-ople don't rhow concerted
enthuxlaam for anbody. When the Ne
braska regiment marched through the
atreeta at the beginning of the war In
1KW to receive the color at the capital
tliey ualked between walla of silent peo
ple. When the First Nebraska boya made
a flmllar march after returning from the
Philippine the cheering waa ao tame aa
to ranae dlaguated comment. The only
real rooting done here is at the bail
grounds, where It Is virtually controlled
by the game, and at the university foot
ball functions, where It la as carefully
organised aa any other part of the ex
ercise. Without asjuad leaders the Lin
coln public seems almort voiceless.
Perhaps there la some satisfaction
here for those who put so much
money, thought and labor on prepar
ing for and pulling off our annual
Turkey's Pitiful Showing;.
What a spectacle of consummate
weakness Turkey Is making against
Italy! The sultan with all hlB tlnaled
trappings of military pomp and
power, his vast wealth and empire
becomes a pitiful pigmy, pleading for
rescue from smaller and less potent
hands. He cannot even command his
own subjects, nor define a policy of
action. His soldiers but mark) time,
his young men and old are still fight
ing among themselves, his cabinet re
signs. No faithful Kurds hasten to
bis relief, no Arab banda come clang
ing on armored steed to do blm
honor. The Christian "dogs" fire
upon his sacred head with little show
Turkey looms up In this crisis aa
the melancholy monument to the Bin
of cruel Intolerance and morbid self
Indulgence. While others went on
developing national greatness and
power, Turkey lingered in the soft,
voluptuoua lap of lustful excesses
Now the Inevitable penalty has come
and It taxea emaciated strength to
meet It. If bad lta handwriting upon
the wall in the revolt of Its young
men, but,, unmindful of the warning,
It continued Its saturnalia and now
comes unfit to Its doom.
Turkey Is a vast empire still and
will be until Italy or some other pow
ers dismember It, but empire and ter
ritory do not make a nation. And
Turkey Is not a nation when It cornea
to the quaJltlea of patriotism and loy
alty that make men risk their lives
for that of their country. Mosques
and monasteries, superstition and
ceremony are not Inherently power
giving In Turkey any more than else
where. All they are or ever have
been are the symbols of a kind of
power which one day bad to fall, the
power by which the masses are kept
In the darkness of Ignorance. Grad
ually that darkness is being dis
pelled, light la penetrating the veil
and young men are beginning to see
even If the older ones do prefer to
shut their eyes to what they know Is
going on about them. Turkey's only
hope lies In catching step with the
march of human progress, and how
far behind the procession it has fallen
may be perceived from the craven
cries that are now coming from Con-
ttantinople for helphelp, not peace;
protection, not Justice.
San Francisco's Primary.
San Francisco deserves all the con
gratulatlons it U receiving upon get
ting rid of an Insufferable mayor
and doubtless most any fair method
of accomplishing that highly laudable
object must atrlke good rtlzens there
and elsewhere aa worthy of emula
tlon. The feat was achieved by means
of a new primary election plan which
gives the office to any candidate who
may receive a majority of all votea
cast at the primaries., If no candi
dste receives such majority, then the
two hlgheat become the nominees to
be voted on at the regular election
Those wfco favor thla plan ask
why have two elections when one
will accomplish the reault. In other
words, why send McCsrthy, the d
feated candidate and Rolpb, the vie
tor, bark to the polls to be voted on
by the same 'electors a second time
after one haa obtained a decisive ma
Jorlty over the others, la this spe
etne Instance, the plsn seemed to

The mere cost and trouble of hold
Ing a second election Is not, after
'all, aa Important as Is getting a finsl
decision from the voters entitled to
a voice. It does not necessarily fol
tow that a majority choice at th
primary would be the majority c hoi
at the regular election. The oppoalt
often happens. Primaries as a rule
do not bring out as large a vote as
the regular election and a majority
therefore, at the primary might be
a small minority of the voters in that
There is the point also to be re
membered, that m-hile this plan
worked out this time in the Interest,
evidently, of good government In Pan
Francisco, there la nothing In the
plan, Itsi'lr, to prevent It working out
ho other way. Generally in politics,
s In bunlnr-sa, a plan that will work
one way, will work tne otner. It
seems like giving up something of
the system of checks and balances on
hlch our politic, Itself, rests to
make the primary a conditional elf-t
Wilson's Delicate Precedent.
Governor Woodrow Wilson
rather an uncomfortable precedent to
guide other democratic presidential
spirants when he refused to let the
New Jersey 6tate convention endorse
his candidacy, did he not? With the
convention In his power, be could
s easily as not have let It endorse
him. It seems from reports that be
had to do some tall talking to p re
pot It from endorsing him.
In any way the action is viewed,
suggests that Governor Wilson
concluded he would gain more, by
taking the unusual course than by
ailing down a fulsome resolution.
But whether It la bad politics or bad
taste for the governor to have per
mitted the use of his name In this
way. Just the same other democrats
ave not been as tactful or modest.
Mr. Folk a year ago In Missouri
worked an endorsement out of the
democrats and Mr. Folk la regarded
as a very sedate gentlemen, If not all
he might be aa a tactician.
One finds It hard to believe, how
ever, that such amenities will bother
old political foxes like Champ Clark
or .Governor Harmon. The chances
are If either of these men sees a
state endorsement hanging out. be
will seize It with all the avidity pos
sible and let delicate precedents go
to the winds.
If registration frauds were com
mitted anywhere In Omaha last year
they afford no Justification or pal
liation for registration frauds com
mitted this year. Correct. But. the
sudden conversion to loud-mouthed
reform of democrats who hold office
as beneficiaries of the Third ward
vote makes their sincerity decldedjy
questionable. It would be mighty
easy, for example, for the democratic
bosses, who are known to be none too
scrupulous, to plant a few fake
names on the registration books here
and there and even label them "re
publican" to help cover up their
tracks, and then make a grand ex
posure to the galleries. We do not
say this Is the democratic program,
but lots of tlrcumstantlal evidence
point-' that way.
What a forgiving disposition Mr.
Bryan haa on occasions. Only a year
ago "BUI" Oldham was lamenting
him as a "beerless" statesman and
appealing to democrats to Ignore Mr.
Bryan's advice to bolt the ticket. But
here is Mr. Brysn urging the election
of "Bill" to the supreme bench aa e
reward for faithful political service.
It's a great game, this game of pol
Postmaster General Hitchcock has
shown himself to be up-to-date by
taking advantage of the latest means
of transporting mall. He has es
tablished an air route from New
York to Los Angeles. Now, It la up
to the mail carrier. Oh. oh.
Mr. Bryan la again swinging round
the circle In Nebraska. He Is not
going to tske any chances that can
be avoided to have those national
convention delegates from his home
stste where he can deliver them to
his preferred candidate.
The president highly offended cer
tain opposition organs when In his
Waterloo speech he said, "Let ua
reason together." Nothing puts
some folks ujk-ln the air so much as
to Insist that they stop and reason.
Traffic by Rail and Aato.
In Nebraska at least railroad officials
think they detect an injurious effect on
passenger traffic from automobile. They
may be mistaken, but the automobile
find exceptionally extended use In the
western grander sections. Nebraska is
said to have ever 9,300 -ars. which would
average one to every 12 persons.

Position of the Priest. .
OMAHA, Oct. 4. To the Kdltor of The
Bee: The editorial In this mornings Bee
concerning the arrangements for the
president's addres, which was to have
been delivered In Omaha last Sunday.
misses entirely the point of the objection
any priest would have to participating
in the proposed meeting at the Auditor
ium. The Bee says: "In inviting the clergy
to participate In the reception to the
president no discriminations has been
made, but this Catholic paper (The True
Voice) declared that It Was Impossible for
any prieet to accept and thus give
countenance to any organization, how
ever undenominational, whose manage
ment Is reserved for members of
Protestant evangelical churches."
No. The True Voice did not say, or
Imply, that the reason why any prieet
could not accept the Invitation was that
his acceptance would "give countenance
to any organization, however undenomi
national, whose management is reserved
for members of Protestant evangelical
hurches." The Bee writer has alleged
that reason, aa a guess, and he Is wide ot
the mark. It may be remarked. In pass
ing, that an organization whose manage
ment Is reserved for members of Pro
testant evangelical churches is a queer
sort of "undenominational" body but let
The point Is that religious services
under the auspices of the Young Men's
Christian association had been arranged
for at the proposed Auditorium meeting.
Now, Catholic priests do not take part
In religious services In which they do not
believe, no matter under what auspices
these may ba held. Protestants may be
able to take part, without offending their
consciences, In services other than those
of their own creed. That Is their concern,
not ours. Catholics, believing-firmly, as
they do, that their religion Is the only
true one, cannot. In conscience, partici
pate In what is, to them, false worship
of God. It Is a matter of principle, not
prejudice. A Protestant minister would
know better than to invite a priest to
participate In his church services, though
he might be on the most friendly term
with him personally. He knows that the
refusal would be a matter of principle
and he respects that principle too much
to even ask his friend to violate it.
The address which President Taft was
to have delivered last Sunday at tne
Auditorium was. no doubt, Intended for
all the citizens of Omaha without respect
to religious creed. Tet those In charge
of the arrangements for the meeting ai
lowed it to be turned over to the Young
Men's Christian association, a notorious
sectarian organization, under whose
usplces a religious service, with the
president's address to follow it. was to
have been held. When will those having
charge of arrangements for such tunc
tlons learn that at a public meeting, in
which the whole city la supposed to take
part, sectarian religious services are en
tirely out of place,? Catholics can work
with their Protebtant fellow citizens in
everything that concerns the civic better
ment of the community, but they cannot
Join them in Protestant religious services.
When President Taft has been the guest
of the Knights of Columbus, the function
has never Included religious services in
which those of other creeds were in
vlted to participate. That is the' differ
ence between the meeting arranged for
last Sunday and th Knights of Colum

as to make conditions which rendered ac
ceptance impossible. I do not ' believe
nor did th True Voice charge that
was intended to exclude priests from the
