Ak.Sar-Ben Shines by Contrast.
Ak-Sar-Ben's euccees as a pro
moter of pageantry was signal from
the outset, but it stands out still
stronger every year by contrast with
similar ventures in other cities.
The latest is the announced sus
pension of the Priests of Pallas
parade In Kansas City, "where for
the first time in twenty-six years
visitors will be invited to come to
the fall festivities with the most
glittering attraction left out." Kan
sas City people have all sorts of ex
cuses to offer for the fall-down of
the Priests of Pallas: that the sub
stitution of electricity for kerosene
torches, and the introduction of
modern spectacles, have put the old
time parade in the scrap heap. The
real fact, however, which Kansas
City folks should realize and admit,
is that they have not maintained the
kind of an organization necessary to
command the resourcefulness to
utilize and arpiy modern Inventions,
and bring their parades up to date.
Here in Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben is liv
ing and conclusive proof of both
these propositions.. Our annual Ak-Sar-Ben
parade is not only a thing
of beauty and a Joy forever, but It is
each year bigger, better and grander
than ever. '

... A Democratio Love Feast.
Mr. Hearst Is still pouring out
manifestations of his undying devo
tlon and love for Mr. Bryan. Here
are; a few 'gems of democratic har
mony from Mr. Hearst's newest

platform:, ( .

The tariff plank reflects Bryan's free

The plank for presidential primaries Is
worse than worthless. Mr. Bryan, like
many other delegates, repudiated his In
structlons, denied the right of the people
through presidential primaries, assumed
a superior tight for himself, and not only
refused to vote for Champ Clark, but did
his worst to defeat ChamP Clark, the
choice of the people of his state, and his
district. There will be other delegates td
other conventions as discreditable as Mr,
Bryan with as little morality, and as
little sense of decency at Mr., Bryan.
The favoring of a Bix-year term for
presidents Is contrary to the expressed
declaration of the founder, of the demo,
cratlo party. It brings Into streng con
trast the democratic policies of Jefferson,
and the unsound policies of William Jen
nings Bryan Bryan Is anl. finsound
theorist without definite policy and with
out genuine concern for anything but his
own advancement, trimming and trading
and compromising and evading to make a
momentary ' point kt the expense of a
permanent policy and a recognised right.
The platform concludes with the empty
plank and hollow utterance relating to
"the rule of the people," which could
have emanated only from William Jen
nlngs Bryan, and which it would have
been an insult to attribute to any other
member of the platform committee. No
trading, trimming traitor ever evolved a
more treasonable plank than the one
which concludes the democratio platform.

grain does not obscure the really
serious side of the situation that
seerat 10 nave arisen in a western
Nebraska county, where the harvest
Is great and the reapers few. It Is
only one such county In this and
jmany other neighboring states,
which, undoubtedly, has need of
more harvest hands than are avail
able; But a condition that calls for
800 men and women to donate one
day's work in the grain . ..equiv
alent to one person tolling 800 days,
simply serves to emphasize the gen
eral demand for a larger arrays of
sgriculturists in . this country. If
we were hot making the grave error
of preferring the city too much to
the farm." we should not experience
such crises,-for the farming -population
would be more- nearly equal to
the demands. And again, this case,

GOSSIP IN ARMY CIBCLES
Matters of Interest Noted by the Army aid : Navy Register.
Money- for Enlisted Men.
A very unusual condition exists in the
army, the enlisted men having failed to
receive their pay for the month of June.
Deficiency estimates were sent to con
gress and the bill now being considered
carries a deficiency appropriation of
11,500,000. Of course, some of this amount
was due to the Increase of officers under
the act of March 3, 1911, amounting to 230
In number, besides an addition of forty
six officers due to the correction of in
equalities that have resulted from lineal
promotion. About $400,000 was necessary
to provide for these additional officers
and the balance Is due the enlisted men.
All army officers were paid for the month
of June, their accounts having been
promptly settled on the last day of July.
Enough money was on hand to provide
for the officers, but the rolls of the
enlisted men, which came In several days
after the first of July, will have to be
carried until the deficiency bill becomes
law. The original estimates submitted
by the pay department were sufficient to
cover the' needs of the army when they
were submitted, but the estimates were
ordered reduced by the secretary of war
and, of course, a deficiency was hound to
come unless the army had been reduced
Wireless Telephone Apparatus.
The assistant secretary of war recently
called the attention of congress to the
question of the purchase and development
of wireless telephone apparatus. In a let
ter to the chalrmaH of the house com
mittee on appropriations he says:
'With a VIeV to extending to the next
fiscal year the availability of the funds
appropriated for the purchase and devel
opment of wireless-telephone apparatus
in the act making appropriation for the
support of the army for the fiscal year
ending June 30. 1910, I have the honor
to recommend that thsre be Inserted lit
the general deficiency bill, when the
same shall be considered by your commit
tee, the following clause, vis:
"The funds appropriated In the act ap
proved March 3, 1909, for the purchase
and' development" of "wireless telephone
apparatus are hereby, made available, for
the purpose ' heretofore appropriated,
during the fiscal year ending Juris 30,
"Experiments in th development .of
wireless telephone apparatus are still In
progress and it s desired to continue the
work during the next, fiscal year. .Such
actjon will not require the appropriation
of additional money, but will merely ex
tend the availability of the balance of the
appropriation. The amount unexpended
and . available at .this date of the ap
propriation above referred to Is $1,369.42."

OMAHA. Aug. S. To the Editor of The
Bee: Apparently tht mediums and seers
of Omaha are to go through tht same
persecution already suffered In Chicago
and many other places.
Some of this class no doubt art out
and out fakes. Nevertheless I maintain
that they have as good a right to im
pose upon the public as have the count
less ministers, doctors, lawyers and busi
Ministers cannot prove their assertions,
then why insist upon these mediums do
ing what the preachers can't do? Many
ministers throughout tho land draw im
mense salaries, when they know they aro
preaching error and imposing on the pub
lic and training the human mind the
wrong way. Why don't we persecute
them for this and make them pay an im
mense license for it? We know that th
average lawyer is a privileged thief. Also
the business man could not make good
If he did not prevaricate.
Why. don't we get after tht doctors and
make them pay over to the city a big
turn for taking advantage Of the-common
ignorance? When people get more en
lightened they art not going to be Im
posed upon by any class. So I say until
.that time comet let the mediums have
the same privilege as tht others in fleec
ing the populace.
, The world Is still In its Infancy ot wis
dom. These mediums keep ever before
us a germ of truth which will in time be
taken heed of. No doubt they needed
the money and they have as much right
hini of his self reliance and, In the long
run, reducing government employes to
a condition of unresisting vassaUge. It
will be recalled that the secretary of war
was unqualifiedly In favor of the "Taylor
system" of shop mnSPment, although
at the time of his approval of the ex
Unslon of h system to the various
arsenals there was vigorous protest on
the part of labor unions. The Watertown
arsenal was made the experimental sta
tion, and the theories of Mr. Taylor, in
sofar as they could be adopted, were put
in force. The results .were claimed to
justify the further extension of the sys
tem to other government establishments.
It was claimed that tlW was tin In
crease In the efficiency of .manufacture
and a material reduction in cost. It was
believed theac results were obtained with
out endangering the . interests of the
working men. The labor , unions have
made a vigorous fight against this par
ticular system, and one of their strongest
arguments Is that the machine shop of
the Mldvale Steel company,. In which . Mr.
Taylor perfected his system, ,has aoan
doned most .of it -as an
method of management.
AhoTvinir Off the Army.
The military authorities did very well
declining the offer of Colonel w. .
Cody, otherwise known as "Buffalo Bill."
to aid army recruiting by adding a .rep
resentation of troops to his show. There
was probably no occasion to take the
proposition more seriously than should
attach to an ingenious scheme of an en
terprising, thrifty and resourceful show
man and an easy way to avoid any dis
cussion of the merits of the plan was
afforded by the discovery that the use
of the army In the manner suggested by
Colonel Cody would prove a violation of
the law embodied in section 3fi7 of the
revised statutes, which prohibits the ac
ceptance of voluntary service, such as
the Judge advocate general recognized as
the effect of the proposal.
It might have beert said, aitnougn H

to do so. that the War department could
not be reasonably' expected to lend us

whatever of casual benefit there might

ters In view of .the. persistent assertion
before congress, in magazine articles. In
postprandial speeches and In newspaper
interviews (hat our army Is worthless

people who are prepared to believe In
this deterioration of the military body
mav not be willing to accept the demon
straUon of fitness conveyed by the highly
spectacular stunts of the circus ring and,
seriously, It Iw a question whether there
Is any advantage to be obtained from ex
hlbltions of this sort. The real test of
the army is when it has something to do,
either In a military way or In the work
of rescue and protection in time of
calamity, of which there have been
numerous examples to the lasting credit
of the officers and men who participated
In the meantime, the army, as the navy,
Is apt to be forgotten and neglected to
some extent, save for the efforts of those
who really have the Interests of the
service at heart and are not uulded in
their acclaim by selfish considerations,
to which they subordinate all else.
N OF POSTMASTERS

the president and vice president. The
president 'names the 'department heads.
The latter In turn should be free 'to ap

A great administrative system like the
Postofflce department must have central

of to' the head 'Of, the department. The
postofflce system, to give-thorough sat

Those . wVo urge the election of post
masters by the people merely demonstrate
their own lack of understanding of the

Ia serried ranks the black roofs loom
Against the lurid sky,
Below, the blaze of garish lights
Grim host of night defy.
Where endless, through the measured
hours. . '
, A human swarm drifts by.
A human swarm shifts endlessly
Through thoroughfares of fire,. .
As each one to his goal impelled '
' Pursues the fool's desire:
While desolate, a House of God
Uplifts a lonely spire.
On far lit avenue thev seem,
To one upon the heglht. .
Like clouds of crazed, bewildered things,

With pleasure for their quest.
And some flee bitter memory
Where grief and torture rest;
But at the boanl w here each drinks deep
Death sits a slkm guest.
In serried ranks the black roofs frown .
On thoroughf" f fire,
Where through the tiiBht a human swarm
Pursued the fool's dtslrt: ..
While like swift ghosts the gray bats
Around a lonely spire..
