The Situation in Nebraska.
Nebraska republicans may. as well
face the situation that confronts
them. With Woodrow Wilson as the
democratic standard bearer, and Wil
liam Jennings Bryan professing com
plete satisfaction with both platform
and nominees; the democrats may
be expected to rally their forces in
this state without serious division.
For the republicans of Nebraska to
divide while the democrats are
united (and we may be certain that
the democrats will omit nothing to
foment discord within the republican
fold), would be Invitation to defeat
and loss, not only of the electoral
vote, but of all the offices on the
ticket down the line. If the repub
licans of Nebraska are not ready to
go out of business, and turn control
over to the democrats for an in
definite period, cool and far-seeing
heads will have to devise ways and
(means to adjust differences hold
the forces together and solldfy the
ranks for a fight against the ancient
British Censure for Captain Lord.
The London Board of Trade in
quiry into the Titanic disaster has at
last been brought to a "deliberate"
conclusion and the finding will be
disclosed within "a reasonable
time." The partial report made
now, however, shows that the board
agrees with the American senatorial
Investigators as to the part played
by Captain Lord of the Callfornian,
The attorney for the British board
regrets his inability to find some
semblance of excuse for the evident
neglect of Captain Lord to use all
possible means at his command to
reach the distressed vessel whose sig
nals were visible to men on his ship.
With this censure reinforcing the
castigation given by our own investi
gators, it is fair to conclude . that
there is no possible question of the
facts in the case, and there is ground
at least for satisfaction in the har
mony of these findings. - It may
easily be that Captain Lord is at
heart a good man and a careful navl-
gator, but his Inaction on this oc
casion was unpardonable and largely
blamable for one of the most ap
palling sea tragedies in history.
Woman's Club and Suffrage.
The women of the south apparently
still hold the balance of power in
the General Federation of Woman's
clubs. At San Francisco they again
defeated the attempt to incorporate
equal suffrage in the code -of prin
ciples advocated by the federation.
For a time persistent contest was
waged and It evidently required the
full muster of strength to head off
the suffragists. The election to the
presidency of Mrs. Pennypacker of
Texas would signify the completeness
of the southerners' victory. .. ....
i- iTheHWUthern, delegates mak-w
pretense of their aversion forqual
suffrage on the ground that it would
enable colored women to turn the
tide of politics in certain southern
states. Whether that is a valid rea
son or not, there is no question that
the wisest leaders in the Woman's
club movement have from the start
sought to keep it completely out of
the vortex of politics, feeling that the
established suffrage societies should
do their 'own work without making
votes for women the bone of conten
tion for diversion of energy from the
many laudable objects of self-help
and public betterment for which all
ambitious women could be united
For our part, we think the southern
contingent have performed a real
service to the women in keeping the
general federation to its original
policy. . ? " ,
Sanitation Begins at Home.
In one of his aerial articles on
health and hot weather, written at
the request" of the editor of The
Bee, Health Commissioner Connell
calls attention to the breeding places
for files about the premises of homes.
He says when you see flies gather
about your door you may know there
is a breeding place near that needs
The average person finding the
screen door thick with flies is likely
merely to shoo the pests away and
see that none gets into the house,
instead of looking for what must
have attracted them. Perhaps it was
a pile of decayed refuse in the alley
or at the rear of the lot, or, possibly,
an uncovered garbage can. Certainly
People complain of dirty Amer

upon the city as a' whole. It Is' one

Crusade of Soffrasists.
Militant suffragetts of England with
the zeal of ancient crusaders, follow the
path of glory and the Jail biased by the
elder Pankhurst Several hundred of the
advance guard of window smashers are
acquiring the martyrdom of jail sentence
and enforced eating. But for every
crusader put behind prison bars, a dozen
leap for the vacancies, each one more

fainly conduct If committed by men.
Window smashing proceeds with un
diminished vigor, the latest plan of cam
paign being directed against post office
glassware, that article as government
property being a more attractive object
of feminine wrath than store windows.
Public indignation aroused by the attack
n private property proved too dangerous
to the physical health of the crusaders
to be persisted In, hence the retreat to
public property as a means of winning
votes for women. The cause seems no
nearer success now than a year ago, and
there are no Indications of popular favor
being won by rocks. The serious side of
the crusade for the authorities Is the dif
ficulty of anticipating militant raids or
discovering crusaders bent on assaulting
state officials. On two recent occasions
the prime minister was attacked at cub.
Ho functions by suffragettes. Other of
ficials find Is necessary to have body
guards as a means of protection. The
menace of unexpected attacks Is an
noying and humiliating, and naturally
makes the victims more determined to
resist force and rowdyism. The, families
of ministers are now objects of anony
ous attacks by mall. Threatening letters
are couched In scurrilous terms, and
petty annoyances attempted at or near
the homes. The problem of dealing with
the growing disorder Is the most per
plexing 'one confronting the authorities,
all the mora difficult because women

Irlt1air the Garden of Eden. '
Booster literature of irrigation prop
ertles In various sections of the United
States, considered the most alluring word
pletures In print, are as the muffled notes
of novices beside Sir William Willcock's
word painting of the restoration of the
Garden of Eden, now a parched and
sterile land, to a fertile earthly paradise
described In the book of Genesis. Sir
William's plan, now under consideration
by the Turkish government, contemplates
the reclamation of the Euphrates-Tigris
delta by an irrigation system estimated
to cost $,000,X. The level of the Tigris
would be raised twenty-five feet by
means of two barrages and a canal. The
superfluous waters of the Euphrates in
the flood season would be diverted Into a
depression covering 500 square miles and
fifty feet In depth, northwest of Kerbeta.
The waters of the Tigris might find their
way into a "salt pan" southwest of
Hamara. The restoration of the region to
its former productivity of fruit and
flowers and vegetables depends upon the
willingness of the Turks and the Sham
mar Arsbs to take cognizance. of engi

HISTORY OF POLITICAL BOLTS
Dif f icultielTOohf ronting Organization i of ', New Party.
Philadelphia Public Ledger.
If Colonel Roosevelt will scrutinize the
results of "bolts" and secessions and third
party movements he will be able to draw
his own Inference as to his chances of
success "as a progressive on a progres
sive platform" which has. not the support
nor the confidence of the republican na
tional convention, i. .
As Alexander Johnston wisely remarks
In his American Political History," "the
evolution Of a. new national party Is now
attended with almost Insuperable diffi
culties. It must be the result either of
the patient labor of years In a clear field,
as In the case of the democratic party;
or of a great popular movement, sus
tained long enough to produce a regular
army out of a mob. as In the case of the
republican party. Until some successful
substitute for the convention system Is
discovered we may consider 'the sporadic
third party national conventions as fore
doomed failures." ' -
The republican party had Its humble
origin. In the conventions of the liberty
party in 1839 and 1840-1 n the latter year
the liberty party nominated " James O.
Birney tor president, and In 1844 put for
ward the same candidate. Birney, In 1840,
go exactly 7,069 votes, as compared with
Harrison's 1.275,017; and In 1844 . he got
5.808 to Polk's 1.337,243. and Clay's 1,299,068.
Their successors, the free sellers, got
but 291.26S votes in 1848 which dwindled
to 158.148 in 1852, but in 1S56 the total al
lied forces of the republicans, with whom
the free sollers had now coalesced, were
able to get 1,841,264 votes as against the
1.838,169 votes for Buchanan on the demo
cratic ticket. Even by 1860, twenty years
after the convention of the liberty party.

CHURCH AND COURT
Innovation in the Activities of Church Life.
Stl Louis Republic
In Installing three tennis courts as one
of ita deDartments. St George's chapel
has broadened the scope of Its useful
ness. We need more good churchmen in
this world. We need more good tennis
players. This Innovation will make for
both those desirable results.
Tennis, of course. Is undenominational.
There is nothing peculiarly sequential or
retroactive between the Episcopal church
and the tennis court A good tennis player
Isn't necessarily a good Episcopal! n;
neither is a good Episcopalian by virtue
of the fact a good tennis player. But ton -
nls Is a sport so intrinsically wholesome
that the churcii. whatever Its creed, well
may approve It encourage It adopt It as
part of its working program.
Tennis once went Its misunderstood way
under the Ignominy of caste. That error
has been smashed Into smithereens.
Thanks to the services of that once great
commoner, now resident on Long Island,
who insisted upon a high degree of ex-
pertness In the game as a condition prece
dent to a cabinet portfolio, a far-Hung
interest In the sport was developed. Ten
nis took on a new and vigorous stature;
was vitalised, so to speak, by the
charging ouiw.ts of democracy. Ko
longer Is the racket confined to the mani
cured hand. It Is wielded In the tense,
stern grip of brawn.

forts of the white-garbed opponents with

chariot of civilisation's progress.
Italy and the War.
The national pride of Italy is now at
the highest level in years In consequence
of the war In Tripoli. "The long and
short of It is," writes a correspondent of
the London Times, "that this war has
satisfied .is never before the Italians'
sense ' of nationhood. Italy felt that,
though nominally for the last fifty years
one of the great powers of Europe, it
was somehow regarded as a more or less
negligible quantity, and that even its
partners in the triple alliance were often
inclined to treat It as a poor relation.'
Indeed, the Italians found, I suspect, a
special piquancy in the ill-concealed em
barrassment which Its Trlpolian adven
ture at first caused both in Berlin and
Vienna. At any rate, they have the satis
faction now of knowing that Italy at the
present moment bulks very large in every
European chancellorie, and Is anything
but a negligible quantity in the European
situation. Moreover, Italy's first excur
sion into world politics some twenty
years ago had left a bitter taste In its
mouth, for the humiliation of Adowa had
never been forgotten. The war with
Turkey has not resulted so far In any
achievement of first-class Importance,
but from the Italian point of view It con
stitutes a pleasant record of unbroken
successes by land and by sea."
Declining; Birth Rate In Germany.
Germany Is no longer In position to
commlsserate France on declining birth
rate. The vital statistics for the empire
during 1911 are not yet completely In
hand, but the returns from Prussia and
Bavaria are regarded as unsatisfactory,
In Prussia the excess of births over
deaths U 490,000. but It was 681,000 in 1910.
For Bavaria " the "corresponding figures
are 73,000, and 84.000. The Berlin sta
tisticians regard It as certain that the
figures for the entire empire will show
an Increase of population of less than
750,000 which is a smaller gain than In
any year for the past two decades. That

authorities may be inferred from the fact

PLATFORMS AKD PROVISIONS.
New Tork Press.
A platform Is a document
That has a lot to say
About a great big heap of things
Called ' Issues of the Day."
A platform is made up of planks,
Some long and others brief,
But platforms do not show us how
To cut the price of beef.
For everything that's Just,
A platform Is prepared with care
But still we're held up ev'ry day
By some bold, greedy trust
It points with pride unto the past
And your support it begs, .
But nothing tells us how we can
Reduce the cost of eggs.
A Platform is prpared with care
In language very nice.
But with poor flok with appetites.
It cuts but little ice.
The planks may all be well enough,
All honest and not cheats, '
But people would like something that
Would smash the cost of eats. -
