Acquittal of the Packer..
' The outcome of the government's
prosecution of the packers Is another
cogent argument against tha law's
delay. This case waa In tbe courts for
ten years In one form and another.
For ten years these men, the packers,
were branded before the world aa al
leged criminals. A speedy, direct
trial upon tha merits of tha case, ar
riving at an early verdict, would
bare been mora just to tha ten ac
cused man. On the other hand, the
people, too, have suffered by this
tedium of delay. '
But, while the Jury baa decided the
case and Its verdict must be accepted,
tha packers may not entirely escape
criticism. Through tha moat skilled
of counsel tbey resorted to every de
vice and Instrument of a highly tech
nical law In these ten years that of
fered delay, and tlma aad again
when It aeemed nothing more) could
prevent the case coming to trial, an
other Ingenious method sf continua
tion waa devised and the case went
over. 80, whlls the packers, them
selves, have saffered' tha edlum and
obloouy of Indicted "erimlnala, they
have helped to bring tha reproach
upon themselves by taking, advan
tage of an nowise system la the

Surely this case ahould help In

It goes without aaying that those
New Tork primaries most be de
nounced by disciples of reform aa a
farce,' particularly since they
turned out Taft delegatea instead of
Roosevelt delegates. Had the result
been reversed the primary would have
been balled by them as the true voice

SOUTH OMAHA. March -To the
Editor ot The Bee: A good many
people, soma very sentimental ones, are
terribly agitated aver the killing of
those outlaws who murdered the. war
den In tbe penitentiary at Lincoln, and
were ready and anxious to shoot down
any and everyone who in any manner
resisted their escape. The whole com
munity between Lincoln and Omaha was
la deadly tear . of being atucked by
those outlaws; scores at farmers and
dtisena turned out. In their pursuit;
certainly those people did not consider
tbe affair a picnic or party of pleasure.
for they all desired to see the desperadoes
captured dead or alive. Among those
who succeeded ia their capture and kin
lug. were Chief Brlggs aad Troutan.
both of whom have served on the police
force of South Omaha for many years,
and during those years perpetually car
ried their Uvea ta their hands, and were
always dauntless and courageous. Two
braver men and better citizens flo not
ezlst m any community. .
Now, fellow citizens, it U a reasonable
and logical proposition that ens of the
murderers killed young Blunt whea he
attempted to jump off tbe wagon and
tndoa them, and - suppose Brlggs.
Troutan or Sheriff Chase did cause Us
death. It was a mere accidental Inci
dent to the conflict but a lamentable
affair, no doubt 80 far as loss, damage
and compensation Is concerned. Mrs.
Blunt and parents win receive all that
right, which we all hopefully desire and
South Omaha citizens are anxious to
ardently endorse and defend our worthy
and efficient officers and neighbors.

slated by the Citizens' Union. It strikes
me that . a grave sad serious mistake
has been mad' by them. If the execu
tive committee has used their best judg
ment In presentlngto the voters of
Omaha tha best material that they could
have selected, I pity their judgment In
lack of more political, ability.. , Not one
of the candidates of their seleetioa has
shown any success In his own business
and how could, ths people of ' Omaha
trust them with the municipal affairs of
a great city? The executive committee
of the Citizens' Union has nude a great
and serious blunder and tha best thing
they could do, under -the clroumstanoee.
U to let ths people at large do their
own selecting and choosing. I for on
will not swallow their political bait which
they have, , or try . to (tuff Into our
throat and make us do their unreason
able bidding.. .

The Patent Deeletea Agfata.
' OMAHA. . March 17. -To tbe Editor ot
The Bee: The mimeograph decision is
not an extraordinary derision. I will
make this statement: The trusts are
not bulldel on the patent right laws as
some of these gentlemen would have us
This recent deatstoa ta which the court
compel a company or Individual to use
a certs in Ink with the mimeograph U
not any part of the' patent Uws. It la
a part of the constitution relating entirely
to ths subsUnce of a contract Suppose
that you would sign a contract In good
faith: would you be manly te abrogate
the same without the consent of the other
party? Now thl Is lb substance of the
decision. A company signs a conlrae
to make a certain piece of inachlnery
which U protected by a patent In the
contract the Inventor has required that
such compear ase a certain kind of Ink.
The company after signing the contract
wants to continue the making of the
machine, but doeq not want to use the
ink. Tbe investor Insists upon the use of
the tak according to the contract or
disrontlnus the making ot the machine.
The court says that the contract aut
be lived up to or discontinue the maz
ing of the machine. Now where can
you see any horrors In. that decision?
The patent Uws do net ' give the fn
veator the power to compel the petrenj
to ua any attrlbnt he may suggest
In tins case It U the fulfilling of a con
tract which baa been signed, which 1
weald atnwiy be a contingent contract.
All of this roar U the foolishness of
a lot at editors whs know nothing of
Uw. and most ot them probably did not
read tbe decision. It reminds me of tha
position ef a lot of those chap oa the ;
saeeess ef the airship. Brery machinist 1
knew from Ue start that the success
of tbe airship eras all hot air. and time ;
has shown the true, position ef tbe editor.
Patent rights are one of the chief
source at prosperity and they are at
the bottom of the best principles of our
modern civilization. An or this tau
of the commentor aa to tha patent righ..
and the trusts ia pure, unadultrated hoi
air. The patent laws ahould be re
vised, but tbey ahould be re vised so that
the Inventor will net have to spend a
fortune to keep off infringement We
should not be compelled to stay in court
for twenty or thirty years while a trust
or powerful comparry Is Infringing. We
neeeT a patent court so that a bearing
may be had In every state and -we want
no appeals from that court except to
the supreme court' ' Then we went it
fixed so that there Is a good strong
financial penalty for the act of Infring
ing. The protect! oa of the Inventor will
have a strong tendency to put the trusts
