A Question of Competency.
The republicans of Douglas county
have renominated Robert Smith for
clerk of the district court. To con
test with blm for this responsible
position the democrats have nomi
nated Thomas J. Flynn, at present
street commissioner under Mayor
For four years the work devolving
on the district court clerk's office
lias been performed by Mr. Smith
and his assistants, and the record
thus made Is what the voters arc
called on to approve by giving him
the customary second term. Every
lawyer and litigant, every Juror
drawn on a panel In fact, every one
who hns had any business to do in
that office during Mr. Smith's in
cumbency know that the office has
never been better conducted, or tho
papers, books and records better
kept and as easily acccsxlble. Long
standing abuses have been corrected,
Improvements Inaugurated, and a
particular effort made to serve the
public satisfactorily, and, at the
same time, economically. The only
outcry we recall was occasioned by
tho enforcement of tho law requiring
prepayment of fees, and by tbls tlmo,
wo believe, even thone who objected
ara convinced that it wos tho right
thing to do.
If Mr. Flynn as the democratic
nominee has any special fitness for
the position of clerk of tho district
court, it has not been disclosed. Mr.
Flynn had the reputation of being a
good plumber when he worked at
his trade, which hns not been for a
loiifr time, but there Is no plumbing
to be done by the court clerk. Ills
record in tho legislature Is not bad,
and his service as Jailer under Sher
iff Tower may have been up to the
average. It Is, however, us head of
tho street gang under Mayor "Jim,"
that Flynn has distinguished him
self by drawing a salary from the
city trensury while devoting himself
exclusively to politics, and acquiring
the sobriquet of "Doss" Flyun. Pre
sumably, the "boss" believes that the
larger salary attached to the office
of district court clork would be a
fitting reward for his political serv
ices and give him a wider field for
Dahlman club activities, but it is
extremely doubtful whether the tax
payers and voters will agree with
Bright Side of Aviation.
During the week another noted
blrdman, Eugene Ely, aviated his life
away. It really begins to look as if
the ranks of conspicuous aviators
were rapidly being depleted by death
and each recurring tragedy provokes
new Impatience at the hazardous en
terprise. Yet, there ia another side
to the picture. It Is well brought out
by the World Today, which shows
that Instead of being enormous, the
death rato of aviators Is very low, as
compared with other so-called haz
ardous undertakings, and, indeed, it
is so low as to remove aviation from
the ultra-hazardous class.
According to tbls magazine sluco
1903, when the first power flight was
made, the total number of deaths
exclusive of Ely'B and any that have
occurred this month la seventy,
not only for the United States, but
for the world. That seems Incredibly
small. On the other hand, when this
compilation was made, the total
number of flights was more than
10,000. including about 050 licensed
pilots. That gives a low death rate,
comparing, says the World Today.
with that of trainmen and miners
and being less than that of auto
It Is, certainly, a good showing
and the better when one remembers
how new and wholly experimental Is
the art of aerial navigation and how
rrudo and unfinished have been
tnuny of tbo machines in which men
havo met death. To these considera
tions should be added this other, that
mauy of these deaths could havo
been avoided except for daredevil ad
venture and sheer carelessness.
For years one of the dreams of
Wyoming anu t oiorauo bas been a
north aud south railroad line run
nlng at least from northern Wyoming
into Denver. Such a line will now
be built If pluns credited to James
J. Hill eventuate. Mr. Hill, It Is re
ported from St. Paul, contemplates
tho construction ot a road from Sent
He to Galverton, and incidentally this
report gains color from the fact that
not so very long ago Mr. Hill bought
up the Colorado & Soutberu. At
that tlmo tho railroad world specu
lated a good deal as to exactly his
purpose. Many said it was only a
part of his determination to intrench
himself iu the Harrlman territory by
securing uu outlet or terminal at Sau
Francisco, as he already had at Seat
tle, and that he would use the Colo
rado &' Southern as a link In a road
straight across to tho Pacific.
This new line, it it is built, will
ruu from Galveston to Denver via
the Colorado & Southern, then north
through Cbeyeune, Orln Junction and
Shoahone, Wyo., aud on through
Billings and Uutte to Seattle. It
would traverse a country teeming
with undeveloped wealth and oppor
tunities. It would be the most nat
ural stroke, it seems, for a railroad
king to deal next In the west. Not
only would It afford Wyoming and
Colorado the north and south line
they are seeking, but it would hook
up this great empire of the northwest
with another nearly as great In the
southwest, as they are nut now
booked up, and tie tbem more se
curely to the midwest.
Of course, there are railroads and
rumors of railroads, and It is difficult
to decipher the secret rode; Mr. Hill
bas also been credited with a plan to
run a line from the Canadian border
through the Twin Cities to the Texas
coast. It seems scarcely probable
that ho will enter tipon the construc
tion of both of these immediately,
but 'it seems probable that one or
tho other, If not both, will before
many years be put through.
Balm for Man's Heart Wounds.
Woman has had her day at breach
of prom Tho suits. She has taught the
man with a plethoric roll to guard
bis amorous words as carefully as he
would his coin. Now, the tables have
turned. They have been turned by
a young male member of a promi
nent minstrel company. His affec
tions have been unrequited and bis
heartstrings badly twisted. AIho bis
lady love Is solo heir to a million and
a balf, hence the crushing disap
pointment to ambition as well as love.
What young actor with an ounce of
grit would not resent such a wanton
assault upon his trusting heart? The
meager sum of $50,000, ho thinks,
will servo to heal every wound and
repair all the damage. Certainly that
la a fair demand to make of a fair
lady with $1,600,000, who had given
him every reason In the world to
expect an even break on ot least a
million of it.
"She kissed me in the eyes and
said, 'sweet little eyes,' and sent mo
'eye IUhscs' in her letters and on her
postcards," asserts the plaintiff in a
very plaintiff way, too. Now, what
Incredulous, unsophisticated young
man would not hand his heart out to
a young millionairess for that sort
of talk? And here it happens not
only that the lady has toyed with his
affections, but that, Indeed, be is the
second victim. A $50,000 balm would
bo a mere bagatelle! "Long enough
havo we been cajoled, derided and
deceived; It Is time for us to act."
The great Irish patriot's words will
do for the cue to those young men
who feel themselves abused as this
disconsolate youth has been. Suppose
he should get the $50,000 or what
portion of it his lawyer did not keep
how would such a trifle ever re
store his childlike faith in woman?
How could he ever love again?
Work for the Irrigation Congress.
The Irrigation congress, which
meets next winter in Chicago, should
give its meetings more of a popular
touch than they have had. It should
give wider range and scope to its
educative features. It should extond
tho information it has about what
the government Is doing for tho man
who seeks 'a home on the soil. It
should emphasize the fact that Uncle
Sam has reclaimed millions acres of
land, placed irrigation within easy
reach nnd made the land a most
tempting bait to set before any man
looking for a good opportunity out in
the great west.
All this l quite as important as
the technical sldo of tho congress'
work. Its technical side bas done
much that Is not to bo doprecnted,
but tho movement has reached the
place where It should take on more
of a popular Interest.
Tbo back-to-the-land movement
will actually move when It gets up In
front of the city man with a proposi
tion so attractive that he simply can
not resist it, but it will not move,
Indeed, it has not, moved very far
with mere sentiment as the chief
motive power. There la so much to
be tolif the man in the city that ho
does not know and perhaps has never
thought of about the opportunities
In tho west, that it wpuld be well
worth the while of this Irrigation
congress to tell him and thus supple
ment what the land shows, develop
ment leagues and slmllur enterprises
Mr. Bryan Insists on revising
downward the declaration that 90
per cent of Nebraska republicans aro
progreswlve, saying that In his opinion
75 per cent Is nearer the mark. Still,
even on that basis, why should 75
per cent of the republicans, who
mirst control their own party three
to ono, vote to put democrats into
office Just to please Mr. Bryan?
Wonder If there Is any particular
motive Inspiring City Comptroller
Cosgrove la compiling and publishing
"an anaiyttia ot the city hall con
struction and equipment fund" Just
at the moment when the democratic
combine across the street is about to
deal out the equipment contracts for
the new court house.
Reading the accounts of Mr. Bry
an's speeches through Nebraska, It
Is plain that bis desire to go to the
democratic national convention to
help nominate his preferred candi
date is not nearly so Intense as his
desire simply to go there as a dele
gate. Now, we submit on th strength ot
that pictorial folder gotten out In the
Interest of the republican ticket in
Douglas county, that the face of the
returns entitle the republican candi
dates each and all, to the prize ot
victory ta the voting contest.
There is a bare possibility that
practically all the work of street

Thoae who take stock tn the dream of
the crosi floating above the ruin of

Moslems celebrate Uie birthday of the
Turklxh sultan with more rejoicing than
they do that of the Br!tiih king-. Re
cently the czar of Russia attended tho
laying of a cornerstone of a great Mo
hammedan moaqiie In BL Petersburg,
and the emir of Bokhara, a Moslem
potentate from central A "la, eat at hla
right hand. Under tho stars and etrlpcs
in the Philippines there are about 700.0U0
Moslem cltiiens. The number In Africa
la not known, but according to one au
thority there "Mohammedanism Is ad
vancing like a sandstorm In the desert."
Among the black people of Africa Mo
hammedanism is making greater strides
than the combined lubora of Christian
mlsHionarles. To tho mighty host of
ICalcm the aultan la tho living representa
tive of the prophet. An attack on the
Ottoman empire Ih regarded by the fol
lowers of the prophet not only as an at
tack on a political system, but an at
tack on their rcllKlon. Once tho idea
that the "hstod infidels" are warring on
hla religion penetrates the Mohammedan
tnlnd he ia ia tho fight to tho death, for
deuth in the hoiy cause, by Koranio
teaching, la tnude a passport to paradise.
To show how doep-rooted Is the creed,
and the rcadlngesa nf Mohammedans to
make sacrifices for tho faith, the state
ment is made by an authority quoted by
the New York Sun that in response to
the appeal of tho late Sultan Abdul Ilamld
for funds to build a railroad connecting
tho holy cities of Medina and Mecca with
Damascus $100,000,000 was contributed in
ten years, of which one-third was con
tributed by the Mohemmedans of India.
In the light of thexo evidences of Moham
medan solidarity and seal the hope of dis
rupting Islamlsm by a mere grab of ter
ritory is as shadowy as the dream of
Peter the hermit.
An Oinlnona t'areat.
E. Alexander Powell, late of the Amer
ican consular service In the Ottoman do
minions, discussing the "Moslem Menace"
In the Outlook, expresses the opinion thai
Italy Is tampering with a mighty and a
dangerous power-. "Among all Moham
medans," says Mr, Powell, "there Is
growing an ominous unrest, a fierce con
sciousness that the lands which they
have for centuries regarded as their own
are gradually slipping from tbem, and a
decision that they must fight or disap
pear. On the Barbery coast, the Nile,
the Congo, the Niger and the Zambesi
they see the turbans and the tarbooshes
sullenly retreating before the white hel
mets' implacable advance, and now they
ee even the Ottoman throne, to them a
great throne, shaking under the pres
sure. Hence there ia not a Moslem in
tha world today who will remain indif
ferent to uny action which hints at the
dismemberment of Turkey, for he knows
full well that the fats of the Ottoman
empire and the political fortunes of lulam
are Inextricably Interwoven."
Tho Hcvolutlon In China.
When the Chinese two years ago began
discarding their queues every pigtail
clipped off marked a recruit for tho revo
lutionary movement now In full blast
Originally tho queue was a badge of
subjection to the Manchu selzcrs of the
dragon throne. For 300 years tho
Manchus, though few tn number, have
ruled the Chinese millions and lorded
it over the native aristocracy with so
firm a band that until the present one
no serious attempt has been made to
overthrow the usurpers. The present time
Is a propitious due. ITndnr the regency
of the boy emperor tha powers behind (he
throne have built up an offlreholdlng
combine from which tha progressiva ele
ments have been excluded and Chinamen
of ability and Influence sent Into retire
ment or exiled. Thus the smoldering
fire of race hatred have beon rekindled
and have burst Into a flame Which gives
promise of reaching Peking. All accounts
reveal an extraordinary and unsuspected
strength In the revolt, and even the cau
tious correspondents, such as Morrison,
who represents the London Times at the
capital of China, talk of tha Manchu
dynaaty as effete as well aa corrupt. An
other singular feature ot this rebellion
U that foreigners are not attacked; that
pledges are made to respect the treaties
and other obligations All going to show
that this rebellion Is being carried out
by Intelligent men after long study, prep
aration and Intimate acquaintance with
ICurupa and America during their exile.
