Not long ago The noe called at
tention to the fact that that
old democratic war-horse, Edgar
Howard, had ruled Champ Clark off
the democratic race track, and was
gradually getting down closer to the
choice of a democratic standard-
bearer. It gois Without saying that
Edgar Howard give no thought to

Now comes Edgar to the front

Wilson, whom he has disqualified be
cause "his home state went buck to

there should be a quick recovery,
"without a serious following In the

Still, Edgar Is not going to render
the democratic rldor entirely horse
less. One man still remains to an

racy. Nebraska's Farm Outlet.
President Howard Elliott of the
Northern raclflc Railway company
recently called attention to the fact
that tho value of farm products In
this country last year was nearly
,uuu,uuu,uuu, ana luaftne farms
annual crop value hod nearly doubled
in tho last eleven years.
That being the case, what should
happen In ther next decade? The
farmer of this country has advan
tages and knowledge "which he did
not lhave eleven years ago by which
he ought to far more than double his
output. He has at least a rudimen
tary knowledge of Intensive fanning
and each year this knowledge should
grow and he has the advantage of
certain governmental aid, as re
clamation and irrigation in swamp
and semi-arid territories upon a
larger scale and he has larger and
bettor railroad facilities, therefore,
more advantageous markets. But
aside from all this, and yet quite a
part of It, or, at least, a connequence
of it, he has access to an immensely
greater area of land for cultivation
than he had eleven years ago and
each year this area will trow.
The farmer of the rich and fertile
state of Nebraska should, mark these
facts, for they have a very deep
tnvnnlng to him. Does be realize
that hla potatoes, hay, alfalfa, rye,
barley, oats, wheat and corn In 1910
made up $219,190,977 of that
$9,000,000,000 total for the United
States? This Is taking no account of
thren of the state's chief Industries
dairying, poultry and live stock
raising, to say nothing of fruit, all of
which are products of tbe farm. But
these prodigious figures bovo their
larger significance to Nebraska farm
ers only when used as the basis of
computation of what can bo done in
the years to come, when more of the
great fertile prairies are brought
under ronquest of the plow and the
sower and tbe reaper.
No state In the union makes a
stronger natural appeal to the home
seeker today than Nebraska. H not
only has the soil, purchasable at
reasonable prices, but It has the rail
road equipment, the market and the
climate, than which there Is no bet
Statistics show' that Nebraska
faroaera are not laUlug as much corn
and small grain per acre as they
were la 11575. but neither are the
farmera of Missouri or Kansas .or
Iowa. They nerd, therefore, to apply
the methods of intensive farming
with more diligence. They havw
made some headway but not enough
to get the greatest value but of their
land. Of course, it is only fair to
note the difficulty of making tbe
yield per acre keep pace with the
increase in acreago cultivation as
compared between now and 1875.
Hut the average acre yield of grain
then was only thirty-two bushels and
no agricultural scientist will rare to
admit that land like Nebraska's can
not reach that ao,w. i
Our First Cold Ware.
The year t sustaining Its record
of phenomenal weather rather well.
The fact was surely not blown out
of our minds by any of the recent
gales that 1911 has set some paces
of its own for heat and drouth and
now people are wondering ir It will
also cuwplete the gauntlet with un
seasonable cold. Some unofficial
weather prophets incline to the be
lief that the present winter 1911-1$
will be intensely severe, though
tor one's own comfort he need not
accept thU as Infallibly true, for two
reasons: Tlrst, that the official
weatherman has not made the pre
diction and second, that those who
have base their forecasts upon noth
ing more tangible than that the year
has been unpreeedentedly dry, in

Even the discomfort people of this

thankful for. -Chicago seems to have
been a pivotal point of this cold

Are Good Men Wanted T
The common cry in politics Is,
"give us good men," and the effort
is constantly made to arouse the
more substantial elements In tho
community to the need of better men
in public office. Every polltlral
party and every reform organization
proclaims its purpose to put good
nun in public positions, but alto
gether too often the avowed object
Is forgotten when the test of practi
cal work ts prosented.
In the recent local election here in
Omaha we had. the same cry before
the primary and the customary diffi
culty to gut good men to consent to
run. Notwithstanding these diffi
culties the outcome of the primary
on (he republican side was particu
larly fortunate, and the ticket nomi
nated aa a whole made up of superior
material, (whlle the ticket of the
democratic opposition was loaded
down, with a few exceptions, wlih
ward heelers or chronic Job hunters.
Yet as a matter of fact, two or three
of the best fitted and most capable
republican candidates were elected
only over the virulent opposition of
the very people who clamor for good
men the sort of opposition calcu
lated to deter good men from ven
turing to run for office in tho future.
It Ib such exhibltidns as this that
discredit the sincerity of reformers
who try to make the "good-men-for-offlce"
slogan their political stock In
trade. It makes it look as If they
bad some other and more selfish In
terest, and that It is not bo much
good men that they want In office,
as it Is their men that they want in
office, which are not always Identical
Tha Lincoln Journal trios to make
cut that holding first place on the
ballot is what elected Judge Hamer,
and that if the ballot rotated In the
election as it does in the primary,
the result would be different. This
assumption, shuts its eyes to the
fact that Judge Dean.'the only candi
date on the democratic ticket who
came wllhln gunshot, alco held first
place oa the ballot, and that rotation
would have set him back Just an
much as It would Judge Hamer.
With the rotated ballot there never
would have been any question what
ever as to the success of every man
on the republican state tlck.H.
Take nete that the scheme of our
Lincoln friends to beat the candi
date for Tjniverslty regent living in
Omaha by making a combination in
favor of the other republican candi
date and their favorite democrat,
went to pieces. Had they succeeded
even in pushing their local democrat
over the line, they would merely
have beaten their preferred republi
can. Senator Hitchcock'a World-Herald
persists In listing Governor Harmon
and Oscar Vuderwood among the
ellgibles for -the 1911 democratic
presidential nomination, Mr. Bryan
to the contrary notwithstanding.

The Divorce fllll.
OMAHA. Nov. H.-To the Kdltor of The
l-e: The I'.oe, of eoftrse, l rUht, In a
measure, when It ra-.S: "The divorce l
the effect, whllei the evil li-s In the
cause, snd the caisAe is to he fo'ind. very
often. In tho r?cklcs mnlne." Uut Is
not the r cities rna.-ilugo, very often, the
direct rrsult tr toj eay dlvnrte? If men
Htid wotren feel that ttinre is an easy
way out or it, tliey wHl be fur less 31s
pjjsed lo reason and weMli the proposl
Hon to wd than the would be If the
way out of it wns extremely difficult, if
not wholly Impossible. Aa things are,
there does not appear to be any very
urgent reason why ordinary people should
be other than reckless as to marriage.
Divorce Is easy. It Is no longer a dis
honor to be divorced, with as clear a
field to wed stain as though the divorcee
were, instead, the faithful survivor of a
former man Inge which death dissolved,
not a divorce court. There are too few
consequences following any sort ef di
vorce to make unprincipled poplo shun
It. They are cordlully received Into the
most exclusive circles of society aa
though nothing at all had ever happened.
Even the co-respondent, on account of
whom a divorce was sought and given,
rtiny be the man whose wife she wronged,
without forfeiting her social privileges.
She lost nothing at all that the world
could give, perhaps not even her own
selfrespect. She f nind her society frlendj
ready to make parties for her as well
as a "Christian minister" to marry her.
What did sho lose in giving rein to paj
slon at another woman's cost? , i
it Is difficult to see whence the remedy
for the divorce habit Is to come eo long as
the public conscience about it Is as de
based as It Is now. If Christian people
condemned It by word and act; If they
refused to receive people Into their so
ciety who sought a reckless divorce after
a reckless marriage, there might be Borne
hope. If Chtistlan ministers refused to
have anything to do with the remarriage
of divorced people, there might be hope.
But they do not refuse. At least many
of them do not. The average protestant
minister will refuse to go behind the
state license. He will marry any one
bringing, that. There was a great ado
made about the Astor case, but similar
cases occur everywhere. In Omaha a
elsewhere, without rebuke from the press
or people. If Christian mln.stfrs Would
obey the law of Christ by refusing to
rolemnlze, or to legalixe, the marriage
of divorced people, there would be fewer
divorces. The state divorces them, let
the state marry them, and clvo them
What blessing It has to bestow upon the
work of its own hands. But let the pre
fessed minister of Christ refuse 'to bless
what Christ condemned. Or If he will
not, let him be consistent enough to refuse
to deplore the prevalent evil of divorce

John Howard I)r.
HARTINGTON, Neb., Nov. 11. To the
Editor of The Bee: In the year liMKi the
writer was appointed by the governor of
Nebraska as one of tbe delegates to the
National Prison congress. The session
was held at Lincoln. 1 have always been
a nudinirer of John Howard, because 1
nave regarded him as on of those rare
exceptions in the ma.ss of humanity, one
of those unique persona, an absolute
altruist. At tViat congress I offered the
following preamble and resolution.
Whereas, It Is meet and proper to com
mcmoiaie the name and services of the
ituhtr oi prison relorm; now, tlierefora,
HtSvlved, That we recommend to all
ISist.n aeiorin assoc. ations and societies
throughout the United M lutes and to ail
frlenus of prison reform the proper ob
servance of the sfcmd day of September
of each succeeding year, to be known and
deslcnated as Howard day, the same
being thu anniversary of the birth of
I moved that a committee be appointed
to consider this resolution and report at
the next convention. The president, a
beefy prison warden from some state
which a dlgreinember. either through a
desire to kill the resolution or through
ignorance of parliamentary courtesy, did
not appoint me on the committee; and
that was the last heard of the resolu
tlon. In 1909, 1 happened to be secretary
of the Judiciary committee of the house
of the Nebraska legislature and drafted
a bill, which Victor Wilson, the chairman.
Introduced, making Howard day a legal
holiday In all prison and reformatory in
stitutions In the state. This bill passed
the house, but failed in the senate. The
next session, at iny request, James Mar
tin Taicott introduced the same bill, and
with characteristic energy pushed It to a
passage and apitroval; and It la now a
law In this state. I wish every state In
the union would take notice of the action
of Nebraska and follow suit. The effect
upon prisoners in raising their self-re-specj
and bringing to their minds the
work of John Howard will have a greater
effect for the reformatton of the human
race than anything I can conceive. When
men cease to gloriry their butcher the
name of John Howard will stand out as
on of the great namea In 'human history.
