The Only Safe Way.
With the end of the political ram
pslgn In sljtht, the Intelligent voter
who wants to do the right thing
without passion or prejudice must
see that the only safe way Is to pull
the republican lever.
The Issues of this off-year election
In Nebraska resolve themsHved Into
a question of good government
through competent and trustworthy
public servants, and by this test the
candidates on the republican state,
judicial and county tickets are all the
ay down superior to their demo
cratic opponents. We make no ex
ception here the one place where It
Is the duty of all good citizens, re
publicans as well as democrats, to
vote for the democratic nominee
being a school board nomination of
really minor consequence.
Here In Douglas county the Voting
machine will again be used to regis
ter the popular choice for state, Judi
cial and county offices and a paper
ballot for school board office. Undor
thone conditions the safe and at the
same time the simple way, Is to pull
the republican lever and take no
chances on defeating your own pur
pose by attempting to manipulate

for re-election and for Judge Hamer,
who won out so handsomely In the

of our district bench to retain tho

John Mitchell said In a recent
speech that" unionism Is judged by
Us mistakes and failures, and In a
large measure he aald truly. But he
added that, on the other hand, "we
Judge every other human Institution
by tta best works." In which' his
loglo la not quit ascojjvlucSng, .
Aa a matter of fact It is' the. most
common fsult of critics to pick out
the weakest points In anything as
their basis of attack. The public
schools, the colleges and universities
and even the church suffer, we think,
fully as much from this sort of criti
cism as doea union labor, which we
are perfectly free to admit Buffers
more from It than ta fair or Just. It
ts simply natural tor men to aeek out
the euperflclal faulta and they are
prone to magnify theae faulta that
they may add weight to their crltl
clstn, but It does not appear that
unionism suffers any more from thla
than other human Institutions.
But. quite apart from whether It
doea or not, Mr. Mitchell la asking
none too much for the cause ha lovea
and has helped to ennoble In demand
ing that It be not condemned merely
because lmlta ranka are those who
sometimes resort to deeds of un
justifiable violence and disorder.
Unionism in tta Inception did not
provide for such thlnga and ahould
not be held responsible tor them un
less It sanctions thorn and shields the
perpetrators. When It doea that It Is
to be condemned. Interests with
which unionism Is often In conflict
also have In them elements of wrong
and tnjusttce, but It would not be fair
to denounce them aa vicious because
they are Imperfect.
Divorces and Colleg-ei.
Several of the prominent eastern
colleges are "pointing with pride" to
the fact that the enormous percent
ag of divorce In this country at
large la not maintained among their
alumni. Smith college atatea that
only one In eighty-seven of it young
women graduates Is divorced and
Vassar asaerts that lta percentage ta
even lower. So much for two of the
leading girls' schools. Others, for
girls and coeducational, make similar
claims. The ratio "out in the world,"
be It remembered, ts one divorce In
every twelve marriage, a mc.it
Of course, comparatively few peo
ple are college graduates and most
of thos who Uv out their matri
monial Uvea without being divorced
do It to spite of the fact that they
never bad the Influences of a college
education to help them. On the other
band, tie college education doe not
succeed In doing for all what It docs
tor msny, but It t mott gratifying
to find that It bac don so much la
tbe way of training men and women
to control and restrain their preju
dicea, impalsea, passions snd what
ever else msy lie at the bottom of
thla divorce evil. Kor tkat is pre
cisely what education should 2o. It
should refine people. It should bring
them to a degree of culture that
shows In their everyday, practical
lives. It should teach and fit young
men and women to live, and that,
after all, in the larger function of
It la when education falls of these
results that those who are prone to
assail higher learning find their
vantage ground. They do not stop to
consider that there Is no more reason
to expect the Ideal of the school or
college than of anything else that'ia
directed by humnn hands. Certainly
one divorce In eighty-seven marriages
Is not bad In view of the appalling
ratio of on In twelve f-r the popula
tion aa a whole. How much more
would it bo It there were no such
colleges and universities?
The Century on the Rivers.
It would have been far too much
for tho mind of Mcholos J. KooseveK
to Conceive 100 years ago, as he
piloted the first steamboat down the
Ohio rlvvr, that within loss than that
time this same river and others would
be lined with boats propelled by elec
tric power, boats of every descrip
tion, from the little private motor
to the large carrier. The centenary
of western river navigation at Pitts
burgh,, therefore, was of far more In.
terest than merely that of marking
the Inrgest crowds that greeted Presi
dent Taft on his lfc.OOO-mlle tour.
"cam was far too new a thing 100
years ago to make river navigation
popular. Even the old stern and
screw propellers were none too well
proved and it Is quite doubtful If such
a thing aa driving water vessels by
electricity had ever occurred to the
men of that day, Yet here In the
century It has become trite and men
are even sailing over seas with air
craft, as if In taunting Irony at the
simplicity of so recent a past. In the
matter of rail transportation by
steam the bounda of progress, It
would aeein, had been reached, and
yet auch a thing was unknown to this
pioneer of the Ohio.
But after all the spectacular cele
bration at Pittsburgh must emphasize
the mechanical development more
than the commercial utility of the
steamboat on western rivers. In the
latter our recent tendency has been
backward Instead of forward. But
here again we are reminded of the
prodigious advance of the railroad.
Coming from behind, as the sports
men say, It baa ao far eclipsed the
steamboat as to force , It, In most
cases, out Of "the line of competition,
although now a period of revival ts
apparently tatting to. .Thla period of
revival,, however, sets la only after
the demands of commerce call for
even larger a,nd 'mora profitable
means of transportation than the
railroad affords, which Is, after all,
but another mark t tho general
progress of the times. If river navi
gation Is brought back Into anything
like general use It will be in response
to practical needs created by the
ever broadening sweep of progress In
a land where the people are steadily
reaching out to the development of
every natural mource.
Distribution ot the Immigrants.
Th only organized effort yet ex
erted to distribute our foreign Immi
gration la that of the Jewish agencies
that ar diverting alien to Galves
ton, Tex., and thence distributing
them over the west and making agri
culturists of them. It ta time that
our people stop talking and go to
doing something practical along this
llnp. For most students ot the Immi
gration problem admit that proper
distribution la much more of a task
Just now than tho regulation ot the
admission at the ports of entry.'
There Is, or should be, a close
relation between Immigration and
th much mooted blgh-cost-of-llvlng
problem. Thousands of theae alien
from Kurope, farmers by nature and
training, come to thla country and
from necessity, not choice, go to work
In mines, on the streets, or In mills,
while at tbe very same time farmera
all over th country, particularly th
west, ar In need ot labor and are
cultivating less ground because they
cannot get dependable labor. Thla
factor figurea la the cost of living.
for more general cultivation of th
soli would have a tendency toward
striking a Better ttaiauce In our
economic problem. That la one of
the burdens of the back-to-the-farm
Our people should take bold of
this problem properly and help th
alien (who cornea from a farm and
whoa Uncage often for generations
back runa to tbe farm) to find hla
way to the soil. It would be helping
him to his highest level of usefulness
and efficiency, both aa an American
citizen and for his own aggrandize
ment. And It would be helping our
own farmera and our ow townfolk
The theory ts uot new, but Its gen
eral practice would be. Th Jewish
agencies bav set a good example and
he Is not the only alien coming to
our shores w ho should be encouraged
to go to farming. There ts the Italian,
the Austrian and people from Slavic
countries who for want of proper
direction ar left to huddle them
selves Into congested corners of In
dustrial renters, complicating rather
than simplifying an already too com

The Lateit Hallowe'en Joke.
Rome of the grown-ups seem to
have played the latest and best Hal
lowe'cn Joke this year, and, while tbe
youngsters shared in the pleasure of
It, they were also the victims. The
Joke consisted In simply Inviting com
panies of boya In different neighbor
hoods to bouse partlea where Hallow
e'en features predominated and en
tertaining them ao well and eo late
that they neither had desire nor time
for their customary pranks outside.
And the best part of the Joka was
that In most cases the boys did not
"catch on" to what was thus done.
The upshot of this whole plan was
about the most quiet and orderly Hal
lowe'en, on the whole, that Omaha
has yet experienced. At any rate
there was less buffoonery and mis
placement, If not destruction, of
property. No doubt some of the hosta
of these parties felt before the even
ing was over that they bad, after all,
paid rather dearly for their conces
sion, but they at least knew what
was going on and what to expect, and
could rest easy In the feeling that
tholr front and back porches and ash
and garbage cans and other appur
tenances would probably be In place
In tbe morning.
Hallowe'en la such a fine old festi
val that It really la a pity to abuse
the occasion It offers for Innocent,
Inoffensive fun and If this new plan
tends to prevent abuse It will be
popular. The boys of every age have
bad their fun at Hallowe'en and the
boya of this age must have theirs,
and probably they will come to enjoy
it Just as much Inside as outside the
house, orderly as disorderly. And,
after all, why Is not the place and
the duty of fathers and mothers, or
grandfathers and grandmothers, to
see that they get this better kind of
fun? The scheme opens up a whole
field of thought as to what constitutes
duty, when it comes to that.
The acquisition of the water works
will make the office of county treas
urer, which Is also that of city treas
urer, much more Important than It
ever waa. The taxpayers of this city
and county have lost a lot of money
In the paat through Incompetent or
dishonest treasurers. No one ques
tions the competency or honesty of
W. Q. Ure, the republican nominee
for that office.
The final appeal of the democratic
state chairman to hla precinct work
era is, "We must have Nebraska In
th democratlo column. Tbe result
of the election this fall will bav a
decided bearing upon, and may deter
mine, the result In the state next
year." That ought to appeal atrongly
to republic na to vote the democratic

court take a friendly view of the In

Governor Aldrich and help retire the
governor next year. Can you beat It?

'Bill" Oldham and Herman and the
other democrats who read htm out of
