The mere size of this work, which is probably only the forerun ner of many more to come, and the multitude of cases cited growing out of compensation laws, must relieve fears of lawyers who thought they saw an end threatened to all litiga tion along this line. . There is no dodbt that workmen's compensation laws can, and will, stop many lawsuits that now burden the dockets of our courts by providing a quicker and fairer way of adjust ing claims of injured workmen, and, particularly by giving the benefits to those really entitled to them rather than, as now, overpaying the few, while forcing the many to bear their own loss. It Is' well, however, to recognize the fact that no auto matic device can be made to fit all me varying vicissitudes or lire, or reconcile contradictory evidence of persons who see the same accident from different viewpoints. , No compensation law yet proposed makes recovery unconditional. That all sorts of debatable; questions are bound constantly to arise is' Indicated by the subject matter of this volume wno.is a. workman ana who Is an employer?. .'What, Is casual employ' ment as distinguished from regular employment? , What to serious and willful misconduct? What is tempo rary and what-is permanent disabil ityt What is total and what Is partial disability? When Is a etelmant-rightly a dependent beneficiary? v au tnese- questions, ana many more,' must arBa i114 '.recur - under automatic compensation law mere or less -the same as undersold methods of enforcing liability. ' The fa'ct that there -are liraitations.'Tiwhfch'in the nature of things cannot be overcome, does not make this proposed reform any less desirable, but it is mani festly wrong to mislead people Into the belief that the enactment of a workmen's compensation law is the Inauguration of an industrial millen nium.

Which reminds us that Omaha has some smoke nuisance to contend, with,, especially during the winter Delivery of, the Sunday Newspaper. Just now the postmaster general and his assistants are bending tbeir energies to devise ways and means of jutting In .force the congressional order closing first and second clans postoffices on Sundays, and to do so without clogging the arteries of the mails and without inflicting unneces sary hardship upon postof flee ' patrons. Everyone will, agree that postal clerks and carriers are entitled to liberal treatment in ' the matter of days and hours of work, but congress evidently took the step it did with out' considering the consequences carefully or guarding sufficiently against incidental 'difficulties. It could have accomplished all that is really desirable by merely insuring postof flee employes one day of rest out of seven. and prohibiting - any work on Sunday that can as well be done on a week day. . Bo far as newspapers are con cerned, the Sunday issue of the paper has come in this modern day to be as much of a necessity to the lntelli gent person keeping abreast of the times as the week-day issue, and it devolves upon the postofflce authori ties anil the publishers to work out a way of getting the Sunday newspa per in the hands of the subscriber who wants it without unusual delay. The vast majority of readers of The Sunday See live in cities where The Bee maintains Its own delivery sys tem, and cannot by any possibility be affected by postofflce changes. To the others we wish to give assurance that arrangements will be perfected wherever necessary to continue to serve them with their Sunday news papers promptly. Color Only Skin Deep After a great tempest in a teapot the American Bar association, com posed of the most able and distin guished members of the legal pro fession in this country, side-stepped the color question by adopting a resolution affirming the membership rights of the three negroes who had been admitted, but at the same time reciting that it was never contem plated that members of the colored race should become members of that association, and requiring in' the fu ture recommendations of colored lawyers for membership to set forth that fact explicitly. " By this self contradictory action the ' lawyers have apparently gotten out, of their quandary without repudiating tor er pelUng the objectionable member, and yet shutting the door to future repetition of the humiliating situa tion. V 1 - This squabble over negro. members we have referred to'as a tempest In the teapot. Everybody knows 'that color is but skin deep, and that a' lot of people with white exteriors are blacker underneath , than the darkest Senegambian who ever came out of Africa. Everybody knows, too,, that subcutaneous black is. not confined to any particular occupation or call ing, but is' to he found in the legal profession the same as elsewhere The presumption is that the local councils recommend for membership tn the American Bar association only lawyers of good repute' and clean records, but that presumption is no more a certainty in this respect than has been the presumption that the recommendation of a negro would be accompanied by a statement of his color. If the association 1b here after going to be so particular as to external color It ought to exact of aspirants for admission into the charmed circle sworn answers also to various questions framed to estab lish unimpeachable qualifications We repeat that a man need not have a black skin to have a black record, and the gradations of the one should demand as much, at least, at tention as the gradations of the other in conferring the Bar association patent of legal nobility. Wise Sir Wilfred.' Sir Wilfred Laurler, who went out of power on the anti-reciprocity wave that swept Canada last year, did not part with his wisdom on giving up his office. Speaking at a public din ner in Ottawa, he referred to the Panama 'canal bill and the British complaint that it violates 'a treaty, saying he did not doubt that diplomacy would find a solution.. He added that for 100 years all differ ences between the United States and Canada had been settled by arbitra tion and that "a bad arbitration is better than a war." " ; j Then he sounded the keynote of Canada's prosperous growth, saying: ! "In England they think of arma ments and wars as in Canada we think of railroads and public works." The Dominion has little occasion to take part in the affairs of the world, and Is thus enabled to give all of its governmental, energy to matters at home. Row well this has been done Is proven by some of its accomplish ments. Laurier was working on this line in his advocacy of reciprocity when he was swept out of office on a " wave of combined ..torylsm and Jingoism, ,; . '. v V ' v Z . His message at present is broader than Canada's dominion; it may well he heeded by all the powers of the world. Giving attention to'rsJlroads and public works, rather than to wars and armaments, means growth rather . than destruction. . And , this was another of President Tail's big Education "and Beg-ging. Under this heading the current number, of he. World's Work throws out some suggestive thoughts about the irreconcilable conflict in the con junction in the college president of the direction of the students' educa tion and the begging of donations to the endowment ' ' To do good work, it is explained, a college must have more money than its students pay, and ' must make up this difference by private gifts or public subventions. Theoret ically, the state universities have the right economic bash that edu cation is a public function for which the' state must furnish the funds yet even in states which proceed on this theory, the university president as a rule has to wrestle with legisla tures holding the puree strings and devote toward getting appropria tions time and energy which should be centered in educational work. The tendency is more pronounced in state institutions than in others to place the responsibility for financial and business management separately, and leave the head of the institution more free to grapple with the prob lems touching discipline and general culture. . The writer quoted' fears, however, that the noticeable gain of our colleges and universities in financial strength, physical equip' ment and the number of subjects taught, is at the loss of intellectual and mora power, by which be doubt less means thoroughness of training. It may be fairly questioned, we believe, whether this loss is not relative rather than absolute, lndl eating merely that the physical ex pansion of our colleges and universi ties has gone on of late at a faster pace than the educational progress The need of a better balancing be tween the two Is plainly real, and opens up a far-reaching problem calling for the most careful consid eration, not only of our educators, but of all concerned in the success of Our institutions of higher learning. know. We have not the art galleries of London, Paris, Berlin or Rome, but no artist ever imagined1 more of beauty than belongs to the eyes of one who rides from Omaha to 8an Francisco. No bluer sky is ever studded with brighter stars than that which canopies the empire from the Missouri to the coast. No more rugged grandeur of heaped up gran ite, of dashing waters, of wide spreading valleys, of everlasting snows and never melting glaciers, can be found anywhere than are of-j fered In the western mountains of the United States. The wonders of Yellowstone, Tosemite, and Glacier National parks are wonders of the world, and have not their counter part in all creation. The fjords of Alaska equal those of Norway, Switzerland's Alps are duplicated many times over in the Rockies and the Sierras, and so the list might be extended. If patriotism does not appeal to those who annually hurry away; to Europe, curiosity might, if it were ever properly aroused.' At all events, "See America first" ought to be the ambition of every American. This Day it. 0maMi COMPILED PROM BEE I ILf-9 SEPT. 1. '. . Responsibility in Divorce. An eastern judge, whose experi ence in the matter of granting' di vorces has been sufficiently extensive to warrant his speaking as . with authority, suggests in a magazine ar ticle that the plaintiff In all divorce cases Is at least negatively responsi ble for the condition that has led to the suit. He analyzes his proposi tion thoroughly, end with such a show of logic as must convince any that Jie is not merely exploiting a theory. V Following the average divorce case back, to its origin, he finds it starts in something the aggrieved party might "have avoided by just a little care 'at the right time. Where of fending habits are complained of, he finds that they generally existed be fore marriage, and with the full knowledge of the partner who later complains of theoffense. In such eases he points out that unhappiness, if not divorce, Is almost sure to fol low,' In all these cases the plaintiff is to blame for having entered' upon a marriage contract knowing of the faults that later lead to separation. In these cases the judge suggests that lovers either settle the matter before wedding, or readjust their prejudices after. , The judge also calls attention to what he believes to be supported by facts, that divorce is less frequent among the intellectually trainea classes than among those who are less well educated. And this not be cause the educated man or woman shrinks from divorce hut because they are better fitted to adjust their habits and Ukes and dislikes one to the other's. Last of all, and perhaps as com forting as any of his other con elusions, this Judge does not see the total wreck of our institutions as a result of the divorce Custom's growth, i Thirty Years Ago Prospects point to a lively fight for control of the Douglas county delegation to the republican convention, the prise sourht being the nomination for congress, tor which John M.

Observations made by American sur geons that blond men are most sus ceptible to the effects of alcoholic ex cesses than are brown-eyed and dark haired males have been confirmed by a well-known woman physician of London. As might be expected, this practitioner has in mind, more particularly, women of the blond and brunette types; and her references are, of course, Strictly lady like. The brunette, she says, is natur ally more lively than her blond sister; and, while ahe needs no spirits to ralso her spirit she can indulge In larger draughts without becoming "gay" being, generally speaking, stronger and more Immune from the after-effects of gen erous feeding and nibbling.

(New ; York World. ) . The route taken by the Lincoln family in removing from Indiana to Illinois In 1A30 has been officially determined by act of the Illinois legislature, and the state historical society Is , preparing to mark It with monuments. The route led across the Wabash river at.Vincenne. through Lawrencevllle, Parts and Shelbyville to Decatur. Abraham LIneolni was twenty one years old at the time. The trek of this humble family through the prairies of the middle west possesses the sentimental interest that attaches to everything relating to Lincoln. Thanks to, the spirit which fosters the identifica tion and preservation of all historical landmarks, it will henceforth serve the uses of an automobile "run." But a re flection prompted by the charting of the route is as to how little of a traveler Lincoln was. As a youth he went down the Missis sippi to New Orleans and there witnessed the sale of the slave girl which inspired his hatred of slavery. He cme east to make his Cooper Union addrees, and again to be Inaugurated, and he visited some of the Virginia, battle fields during the war and Gettysburg after. But he knew nothing of the great west beyond thf Mississippi, nothing of New England except the few cities in which he spoke following his New York address, and but little of the south;" All the traveling Lincoln did in his Hf-. time ' hardly ' equalled the mileage of- single campaign itinerary of later presi dents. He lived before the "swing around the circle" had been originated, befor the days of "traveling presidents" with government vessels and private cars at thetiv disposal before even the "summer capital" at the seashore had been estab lished. ...... ."What are vou: Duzzllnit about?"
