Indefensible and Untenable.
The fact that in Pennsylvania
even "Boss" Flinn sees the necessity
of withdrawing Roosevelt candidates
for elector from the republican
ticket shows how indefensible and
untenable is the position of those
who would seize the republican label
to use it against the republican
standard bearers. For a candidate i
for presidential elector to seek to j
run as a republican when he openly
avows his Intention, if elected, to
cast his ballot against the republican
nominees for president and vice prea-l
ldent, is so essentially dishonest that
it cannot be made to square with a
pretense at square dealing. What
ever rights the third party may have,
it certainly has no right to mas
querade its presidential electors in
the guise of republicans.

An Experiment; Watch It.
Omaha's school system 1b about to
embark on an experiment in educa
tional endeavor that will bear watch
ing. It is the "commercial" high
school, undertaken in the desire to
give something of vocational train
ing in the public schools of the city.
The scope of the new school is lim
ited at present to training for the
work of clerks and accountants. It
may be questioned if this is broad
enough to meet the true conception
of a vocational school. Perhaps the
work may be extended to meet this
.,- A more serious objection lodged
against it is that the curriculum is
not calculated to provide that view
of the field of knowledge that lies
beyond the elementary training of
the grade schools. Things essential
to a well developed mind ought to
be given little part, in the work of
the "commercial" high school. Here
only the concrete facts of "business"
training are to ' be 'provided. Ac
countants, , stenographers, copyists
and. similarly accomplished pupils
will be turned out but the obvious
danger is they, will be left lacking In
knowledge of things other than those
pertaining - to mere, business, some
grasp on which is vitally, essential
to success in citizenship. - :
It should not be expected that the
boys and girls leaving high school
shall vbe equipped to the point of
being able to earn the same wages
and compete in business with
men and women who have had years
of experience; but their minds should
bo opened up to where they will
have at least a comprehending con
ception of iwhat life holds for the
well balanced and properly trained
member of society.

The urgent need of a second sup
ply main from the Florence pumping
works has been known for years.
'The' ; water -J company six years, ago
offered to build the main without
delay if the Water board would give
assurance of reimbursement of cost
when the plant should be purchased
by the city.
This offer was renewed periodic
ally, and last winter the water com
pany ofered either to build the main
or let the city build it without wait
ing for the transfer of the property,
but got no response.
The chief reason for compromising
questions still at Isbus with the water
company was to expedite construc
tion of this main, and the only ex
cuse offered tot the secret water
bond deal was the need of relieving
the city of the danger lying in a sin
gle supply main.
Sixty days have passed since the
Water board took possession of the
water plants and bids for building
this main have Just been opened.

bring about "Immediate" purchase
of the water works, how long will it
be before water is turned into the
new supply main? V

People Talked About
The Lawyers and the Courts.
The - American Bar , association
does not take kindly to the recall
by popular vote of judges or of
judicial, decisions. The association
is made up of the most eminent and
distinguished . practicing lawyers
throughout the whole country, and
may fairly be taken to voice tha sen
tlment of the great body of the legal
profession. It is true that judges
are Invariably recruited from among
the lawyers, which will ' probably
elicit the retort, that the bar is pre
judiced by self-interest. But , in
every piece of litigation the lawyers
on one side must lose, and none more
than the lawyers appreciate the need
of safeguarding and , strengthening
the Independence of the Judiciary,
and the danger of destroying the
courts by making the judges play
solely for popular favor. s
NEWSPAPER IDEAL AND VEEITY
Experience and Conclusions of General Taylor with the Boston Globe
Covering More Than Forty Years.
The whirlwind acrobatics of our
bull moose leaders. in Nebraska are
too rapid for most people to follow.
The same bosses and bosslets, who'a
month ago were operating the steam
roller in a so-called republican state
conventionare now organising them
selves into a bull moose state con
vention, while those of them who
are running for office pretend still to
be republicans entitled to run on the
republican ticket '
The first move of the Water board
to confer the benefits of public own
ership on consumers was to reduce
service already paid "for by the . 8
o'clock closing order; and the .sec
ond .'move in the interest of consum
ers is to rai?e rates - to packing
houses and stock yards.
In the fifty-one years that I have been
connected with the Boston newspapers,
we have always had substantially tha
same problems that are now under dis
cussion. There were many persons yearn
ing for the lueal newspaper fifty-one years
ago, and they have continued to yearn
for It to this day; but the Ideal news
paper has never 'been published. More
over, it never will be, because there are
no Ideal clergymen, nor Ideal lawyers,
nor ideal doctors, nor ideal business men,
nor ideal bankers, since all men In all
walks of life seem U have about the
average of human virtues and faults.
U hat Is true in those calling's U true
In Journalism. As in all other things
from the beginning of time until now
"the survival of the fittest" has been tne
rule in the newspaper world. In building
a newspaper, or any kind of Institution
In the active competitions of life, the
man who Is filled with the splr.t of in
dustry and ambition forges steadily
ahead, while those who sit down In Idle
despair may envy, but they cannot re
tard, his progress.
One of the bugbears of the critics of
successful Journalism at this time is the
suspicion that the newspapers are con
trolled and prevented from doing a great
work for humanity by the advertiser and
the big Interests.
It is the successful newspaper which
has earned the right to be Independent
and which usually has the strongest in
centive to be honest and the least temp
tation to be dishonest. In the thirty-nine
years that I have been In control of the
Globe most of the principal advertisers
of Bonton today have been building up
their establishments and have made their
great aucoess. I am proud to say that
nearly every one of them Is a personal
friend of mine. I here and now acquit
them of any attempt to control me or
Hotv News la Snppreased.
I can assure those of our friends who
are filled With the fear that advertisers
and the Interests will control the move
ments, opinions and news of the prosper
ous and Independent press, that they need
not lose any more sleep over the Globs
Advertisers and readers alike know that
they will be treated wlth-absolute. fair
ness by the Globe, because that Is the
bed-rock basis on which this newspaper
has been conducted for thirty-nine years
and It is the rule which will guide It In
the years to come.
The editor's temptation to suppress
news really comes from his friends.
Troubles visit all of us, and when one
has a friend In charge of a newspaper,
he Is very likely to ask him to keep his
troubles out of the paper. If one wishes
to minimise as far as possible the sor
rows of life, he cannot but be generous
In this matter. If I have erred In that
direction I do not think it will be one of
the subjects that will bother me when I
come to the end of my days.
Advisers and Fault Flndera.
I have always welcomed criticism from
any reader, even If scribbled with a
pencil on a poBt .card, as well as from
those who have achieved success and
prominence In soma , one of the various
avenues of .endevor.. During my years
of Intimate acquaintance, with, Mr, Pullt.
, , ' , .i-i .; ,t, , .... i,.w.
ser and Mr. Chllds I appreciated and
benefited by their criticisms and sugges
tions. Today I am glad to profit by the
experience and views of James Gordon
RennetL who succeeded his father in the
conduct of the New Tork Herald In 172
una haa maintained Its prestige as one
of the great newspapers of the world;
Victor F. Lawson of the Chicago News,
M. E. Stone, general manager of the As
sociated Press, William Randolph Hearst
of several cities. Colonel Nelson of th
Kansas City Star, Samuel Bowles of th
Springfield Republican, Clark Howell of
the Atlanta Constitution and many other
men of distinction among my contempo
raries. The commanding positons they
have achieved make their opinions pe
Perhaps my mind Is not as receptive
as it should be toward a certain type of
faultfinders In the newspaper business,
but I am sure I shall be glad to listen
to them when they have either created a
newspaper or shown their capacity to
conduct one successfully. I fear, how
ever, that their only hope lies in a reali
sation of their fond dream of an endowed
newspaper and a liberal appropriation.
X Larue Family.
I admit, that an endowment would
hav. been an Inestimable boon to me In
the first six yearsof my connection with
the Globe, when my great and constant
difficulty was to meet the weekly pay
roll, for some sixty men and their fam
ilies were depending on me to provide the
means of DavinB their grocers and
butchers' bills. I could stand off credi
tor in general with a cheerful nonchal
ance after a little practice of that art;
but these people .depended on me ror ineir
living and I am glad to say that I never
After prosperity came (following a loss
of $60,000 a year, for five years), that
nightmare of the payroll passed away and
gave me more time to develop the general
business of the paper. I am proud now
of th fact that we have 1,000 men work
ing for tha Globe and supporting their
families in comfort.
They are as united and happy a family
as can be found in any business In the
country. Once a Globe man, always a
Globe man, Is the rule. Men who have
left the Globe and gone to other dt'es
and other newspapers In the thirty-nine
years always retain their loyal feelings
toward this newspaper. Wherever they
may be. If any one of them can do the
Globe a good turn, he Is glad to serve.
Often when a man leaves an employer
he takes delight the rest of his life In
trying to injure him. Every old Globe
man, on the contrary, feels a stanch
attachment for the paper and cherishes
pleasant memories of his active connec
tion with it
LINES TO A LAUGH.
Reciprocal Good Will.
I take this opportunity to thank the
people for th generous, unwavering sup
port they have given to the Globe, and I
am also glad to express my Appreciation
of the patronage of advertisers whf
utilise It so liberally. The Globe brought
them an audience jpf intelligent, discrim
inating purchasers, and while their ad
vertising In . the Globe has powerfully
aided them In establishing th success
ful and profitable position which they
now hold, I am none the less grateful
for their business and I hope thels pros
perity may long continue. . . ,

The battle of Dresden, between Na
poleon and the allies, opened Just ninety
nine year ago August 2, 181J.
On the ISth of th previous December
Napoleon had arrived in Paris from the
disastrous Russian .campaign to find
everything in a state of chaos, but In a
few months the mighty mind of the em
peror brought order out of the chaos and
stood ready to pick up the glove that had
already been thrown down by the allied
The magic of his name, aided by the
prowess of his unconquerable will, had
by the middle of the summer of 1811
brought together a force of 850,000 man.
and with about half of this fofe Na
poleon placed himself at Dresden between
the armies of th opposition.
Converging upon him were three armies
that of Bohemia under Schwartsenberg,
that of Sllesa under Blucher and that of
the north commanded by th prince royal
of Sweden, the traitor Bernadotte, ' the
whole aggregating 800,000 men. f ' ,
The army of Bchwartxenberg, reinforced
by some 80,000 from Blucher, attacked
Napoleon on the 26th, and throughout
that day and the day following the battle
raged with unbroken fury. The 350,000
men fought Ilk demons, but at last the
genius of Napoleon prevailed and th
Allies were driven back upon Bohemia
In hopeless rout.
It was on of the emperor's most bril
liant victories, reminding us of Auster-
Ilts and Marengo, but its fruits were
lost in what followed.
In the words of one who knew Napo
leon well, "Th emperor is victorious
whenever he can be on the spot, but he
cannot be everywhere, and the geneiuls
who command In his absence seldom
answer to his expectations."
In consequence, Vandamme lost at
Kulm all that Napoleon had won at
Dresden, and around the man of des
tiny the coll began forwlth to tighten.
Men like Ney and Macdonald, who had,
as it were, the "habit of victory," were
beaten at Katzbach, and Dennewtts, and
the campaign ended with the disastrous
"Battle of Nations" at Lelpslc, which
left Napoleon-face to face with th sit
uation from which not even his super
human energy and genius were able to

dor of the sunset lasted to the very

power like the career of Napoleon from
Lelpslc to the first abdication. It Is
wonderful how the little Corsican was
able to do what he did during that time.
With the prescience of a god, he seemed
to be able to anticipate all the plans of
his enemies, and with the force . of a
demigod he smote them right and left.

forced to carry piles of hemp much
heavier than themselves from place to

as dark as night

gressive platform insists on "the general
prohibition of night work for women,
and th establishment of an eight-hour
day for women."
