' Chief of Police Dunn.
The promotion of Captain Henry
W. Dunn to succeed the late Chief
of Police Donahue will, we believe,
evoke the hearty approval of every
law-abiding person In the commun
ity except a few nursing grievances
or with irons of their own in the
fire. It is natural and proper In
officering a metropolitan police de
partment to recognize experience
and faithful service of subordinates
according to merit. Assuming that
the head of a police force should
have police training, the new chief
is pre-eminently entitled to the po
sition, which, of course, must be
merely an opportunity to make
good an opportunity we feel coa
fldent he will measure up to.
Light from the Inside.
The Just printed report of the Ne
braska state oil inspector seems to
shed some inside light on the para
doxical rise of Standard Oil stocks
in spite of dissolution into con
atifyient ' corporations. Remember
ing that the Nebraska law makes no
distinction between fuel and llluml
natlng oils subject to Inspection, the
comparative figures by years of the
amount of oi! passed in this one
state alone is significant: .

In five years the consumption of
oils in Nebraska has fully doubled,
and the absolute Increase from' year
to . year has grown larger. That
this is due to the automobile, and
the larger use of power machinery
driven by oil engines Is self-evident,
but nothing could testify more
strikingly to the growth and pros
perity of Nebraska and her people.
The same influences and tendencies
are probably at work in other states
also, "but we doubt whether any of

Omaha has never doubted Lin
coln's hospitality, nor the welcome
that awaits there, so Mayor Arm
strong's assurance comes only as a
matter of form. The Invitation will
be accepted by all Omahans in spirit
and by many in letter.
From the date of its first appear
ance. The Bee has been steadfastly
advocating the beautifying of Omaha,
and much has been accomplished in
'this - direction while converting
Omaha ; from a straggling ' and
scrawny village Into a .bustling
metropolitan city, yet there Is still
much room for improvement. Let
the good work go on.
; Economy and Public Service.
About the cheapest bit of politics
the democratic house was guilty of
during its sitting of almost nine
months was accomplished In the last
moments of) the session. It was
aimed at the Economy commission
of President Taft, and while not de
stroying the usefulness of that body,
it aimed ' at undoing much of lti
work, ' "
In his message to congress when
he first asked for money to defray
the necessary expenses 6f a commis
sion to Invetlgate 'and provide
needed reform in the government's
business methods, President Taft
pointed out many opportunities for
increasing efficiency and reducing
cost by the abolition of duplication
of work, and in other ways. Not a
change was suggested but would
have been quickly adopted by a
business house as prudent and de
sirable. In a special message to the
congress last winter the president
called attention to the reforms ac
complished as a result of the Econ
omy commission's inquiry, the
money saved, and the betterment of
the service achieved, and asked that
the work be continued. He also sug
gested that In the future the budget
system for making ap the big ap
propriation bills be adopted.
These steps were in the interest
of true economy. It is one of the
best evidences of Mr. Taf t's thor
oughness as an executive that he set
them on foot, his purpose being to
accomplish directly what the demo
crats were bluffing at, economy in
the administration of the govern
It now turns out that the ap
proprlatlon for the commission has
been cut to a figure that may result
In Its destruction, and that the bud'
get plan is forbidden by law. The
only reasonable conclusion is that
the democrats In congress are not in
favor of economy, unless it be of
the cheese-paring variety they are so
fond of practicing. Reasonable and
progressive reforms In methods of
transacting public business have no
attractions for them; they are hope
lessly joined to antiquated methods.

JOKER IN DEMOCRATIC PLATFORM
Conservation of Alaskan Mineral Lands on Looting Conditions.
New York Financial World. '
The Financial World de.ires to call at
tention to what appears to be a little
"Joker" in the Baltimore platform, which
if literally followed would result In un
doing all the work that has been done tt
conserve the resources of Alaska to all
the people. ' On conservation the demo
cratic platform adopted at Baltimore
" "The coal and other natural resources
of Alaska should be opened to develop
ment also. They are owned by the peo
ple of the United States and are safe
from monopoly, waste or destruction,
only l while so owned.- We demand that
they shall neither be sold nor given away
except under the homestead law, but
while held in government ownership shall
be opened to use promptly upon liberal
terms requiring immediate development"
The "Joker" lies in the sentence "we
demand that they (the coal and other nat
ural resources of Alaska) shall neither be
sold nor given away except under the
homestead law." It Is well known that
the homestead law now gives complete
ownership to 1(0 acres to any person who
occupies the land for three years, out of
which five months is deducted. Now if
the rich coal lands of Alaska, are to be
given away under the homestead law
they most certainly cannot be "safe from
monopoly." It would take leas than three
years under the operations of tne demo
cratic plan to transfer to a group of capi
talists all the richest ctal lands of Alaska
by the entry of the lands by their m
ployes, who would become owners at the
end of the period named in the law, and
then would be free to transfer their hold
ings to the men who employed them.
Under the homestead law every acre of
coal land now owned by the people would
quickly get into the hands of monopolists.
There Is in existence a law drawn ex
pressly for the purpose of treating coat
and mineral lands on a different basis
from that used in allotting farming lands,
and this is done so as to assure the gov
ernment of an adequate return for the
eession of such rich iands to private in
dividuals, but the clauses we have cited
in the democratic platform expressly pro
vide for an entering wedge which monop
olists would be qulf.k to drive home. The
writers of tha platform and the conven
tion that adopted it should explain.
THESE GIRLS OF OURS.
THE KRAKAT0A ERUPTION
By Rev. Thomas B. Gregory.
The eruption of Krakatoa, down in the
Sunda straits, whiclf took place ' twenty
nine years ago August 28, 1883 still ranks
first among the appalling convulsions of
Krakatoa was a volcanic mountain
midway between Sumatra and Java, but
it had been inactive since 1680. In the
spring of 1883 it began to show signs of
activity. On August 26 loud explosions
were heard, and on the 28th came the
eruption that fairly shook the planet.
The eruption was followed by an ap
palling darkness, with a downpour of
mud and sand. Then came a tremendous
tidal movement, the water receding and
then returning and overwhelming the
people on the shores. The tidal wave
was fifty feet high.
When Investigation became possible it
was found that Krakatoa had ' burst
throwing one part completely over Lansj
island, seven miles to the northwest
The great mountain was literally torn
up 1y the roots, as was shown by the
fact that over the spot where the ex
ploded volcano had stood the sounding
line found a depth of 160 fathoms, or 969
feet. Other soundings showed that the
bottom of the ocean for miles around
had been changed. Islands that had
never been seen before appeared and
others entirely disappeared.
The damage to human life, done chiefly
by the monster tidal waves, has' never
been definitely estimated, but it is known
that at least 100,000 perished. The loss
M'as probably far in excess of that
Soma idea of the force of the explosion
may be had from the fact that the waves
that were started by it traveled across
the oceans and met on the other side of
the glob. Indeed, it was proven that
these waves crossed at the Antipodes
and encircled the earth no less than four
times before they got back to, normal.
Strange as it may seem ,the detonation
accompanying the explosion was felt 3,000
miles away; while, from its very , im
mensity, It was almost inaudible to the
dwellers in the immediate vicinity.
Wonderful, too, were the meteorological
phenoma following- the dread calamity.
The sun did not rise or "set in the old
familiar way for more than a year after
the explosion. The clouds appeared to be
touched with strange lurid tints and the
blue of the heavens did not look as It had
looked before. The superstitious In all
lands felt that the very laws of nature
were changing;, and some imagined that
the world was rearing Its end.
The explanation, later on given,
that the queer phenomena were due to
the fact that the awful explosion had
filled the whole upper atmosphere with
thousands of tons of tine dust, which en
circled the entire earth and changed the
aspect of the heavens. ' '

Zone System of Bates and Eleven Pounds the Limit.
New York World.
The parcels post act as finally passed
by congress follows the son plan of
Senators Bourne and Bristow.
For varying rates running rather high
over long distances ther Is more reason
in a country 8,000 miles wide than there
Is in compact Britain, Germany' or
France, either of which is smaller than
Under this bill an eleven-pound package
can be sent over a first-sone distance of
fifty miles for 35 cents, or ISO miles tor
H cents, or from New York to San Fran
cisco for $1.32, tha same rate that is
charged in th International parcels post
service.. To send eleven pounds of mer
chandise even ten miles by post now
we must divide it into three parcels and
pay 81.76 postage. ,
The Bourne bill carries the service only
part way along the path of progress
which other nations have traversed. In
Germany the post carries eleven pounds
of unsealed merchandise forty-six mile
for t cents and 110 pounds for to cents,
with cheap facilities for insurance.
Franc carries twenty-two pound parcels
for 26 cents. Even Russia admits a weight
limit of 108 pounds and will take thirty
six pounds overland from St Petersburg
to Peking for 10 cents a pound above
local rates. ; 1 .'.
But the bill is a boon. It may or it may
not go far enough. The son system may
or may not be abandoned; it is at least
common In other countries. The weight
limit needs to be raised to make th
service what It should be. The prices are
too high.' Th discretionary power of the
postmaster general to modify rates and
son is dubious wisdom. But never mind!
It is a fair beginning. That congress has
at last been goaded to pass a parcels post
bill of any kind I a splendid victory for
public opinion over the forces of privilege.
Republicans Want to Knew.
BURWELL, Neb., Aug. 27.-To the
Editor of The Bee: Myself and many
more of the republicans of Garfield
county wish to know Just wnere Governor
Aldrlch and George W. Norris stand

the third party, they cannot be repub
licans. If they are not republicans they
should not masquerade as such.
The majority of the people don't like
masqueraders and straddlers. The great
Master made It plain where ho stood on
this principle nearly 2,000 years ago when
he said, ''He that Is not for me is against

Third Term Progressive.
BRADSHAW, Neb., Aug. 26.-TO the
Editor of Th Be: For a long time we
have been racking our brains trying to
discover what "progressive .republican"
really meant For a time it ha loomed
up before us as that of leaving tried re
publican principles and flirting with un
tried democratic Ideas. This conclusion
was reached by giving close attention to
th1 actions and argument of Congress
man Norris, but' now. thanks to Colonel
Bryan, th republican progressive Idea is
perfectly clear to our mind, and it is
Colonel Roosevelt who Is th embodiment
of that much mooted political phrase
"progressive," and It ha become, or Is
to become, if Roosevelt Is to hare his
way, a mighty force In th destruction
of a national precedent a precendent es
tablished by Washington, followed by
Jeiterson and was held over General
Grant . It Is certainly a great' satisfac
tion to an old-time republican to find th
straight and narrow path called "pro
gressive republican." and to get out of
the wool-gathered dilemma of not know
ing Just where th path la leading. Of
course, the republican party has always
been progressive. It has furnished and
put Into practic a complete line, of pro
gression and prosperity since the days of
the great civil war, but until this year 1912
It has never tried to make a slogan of the
word in order to hoodwink the voters
Into nominating i candidate for presi
dent for the third term." Is not such a
ltne dangerous? Can th grand old re
publican party, "or vtn a part el th
party afford to lend its Influence to such
an end simply to gratify the ambition
of Roosevelt or any other designing
politiolan? We answer, nevert
Th republican party is th party of

ready to allow this cry, "progressive,"

SOUTH OMAHA, August 27. To th
Editor of Th Bee: Governor Aldrich's
latest escapade In an attempt to emulate
his bull moose leader and constitute him
self the mightiest of all. has sprung a
challenge for public debate before the
Nebraska people on political questions
on Lieutenant Governor J. H. MoreheaJ,
who is now th democratic candidate for
Aldrich's position, but Mr. Morehead, with
commendable sagacity and wisdom, be
ing well versed with Aldrich's egotistical
designs and tactics, has modestly, but
firmly ignored his reouost. thus unrimt.
Ing th worst state executive Nebraska
nas ever been afflicted with from ob
taining more publicity and create notor
iety, for he certainly already has enough
oi the latter.
His anxiety to kep himself promi
nently before the voters and obtain larsrer
audiences to listen to a political dis
cussion in bis present effort to com
pletely annihilate the G. O. P. has been
frustrated by Mr. Morehead's decision.
Only for th large number of appoint-.
om or whom I hav known for many
years to have been active, worthy, loyal
republicans, but who now feel obligated
to support him. h would receive a
meager support In years to come these
same men will deeply reitret havlntr l.f
the republican party of progress, advance
ment and prosperity, to foilow a lot of
professional office seekers and false re
formers like Roosvlt, Aldrlch and Nor
rls. I earnestly and sincerely would ask
how a true republican can desert his
party and follow such political renegades
whom I bcllnv on next November 4 will
be consigned. to political oblivion.
