The Right to Vote.
The right to voto in. Nebraska Is
conferred by the constitution of the
state, and is not to bo taken away by
Congress, by tho legislature or by any
autocratic election commissioner,
This is the ruling of Attorney Gen
eral Martin in an opinion which dis
plays commendably clear perception
of tho whole subject and completely
confirms tho dissent registered by
The Bee against tho far-fetched ef
forts of our election commissioner to
disfranchise another large body of
our foreign-born voters. Tho attor
ney general shows and supports tho
contention by amplo authority that
tho ballot is conferred by the state,
and not by tho federal government or
the otato government, and, once ac
quired, is not forfeited except by
conviction of felony, being adjudged
insane or in some way prescribed by
No one will question tho right nnd
propriety of ascertaining by reasona
ble tests the voter's possession of the
qualifications required by the otato
constitution, namely, tho 21 years of;
age, the six months' residence, tho
declaration of intention by foreign
born and of rational precautions
against fraudulent voting. But the
logic of the attorney general's opinion
is to question tho constitutionality of
any law going furthor than that. Cer
tainly, no law can distinguish be
tween or discriminate against differ
ent classes of voters, whether native
or foreign-born, or assume that the
natitve-born is truthful, while tho
answers ot the foreign-born cannot
bo believed unless reinforced with
documentary evidence. It is doubt
ful, also, whether a law can be up
held that shuts out qualified voters
because unregistered and makes It
Absolutely Impossible for them to
have their votes sworn in. The logic
of tho attorney general's opinion
would also rulo out every provision

Sanitary School Buildings.
There are threo kinds of public in
stitutions whore presence of the In
mates is compulsory prisons, asy
lums and schools. Only small per
centages of the population ever go to
prisons and asylums, but all are sup
posed to spend time in the schools,
and a large portion of the population
spend most of their time there for a
number of years.
Tho importance of making the
school buildings Just as sanitary as
possible, thcrofore, is not to be over
emphasized. We boast of the prog
ress made In this direction, but let us
not weary in well-doing, but rather
make certain that we are not over
looking some minute detail In the
perfection of this art of sanitary
buildings for housing of our young
people during their formative years.
Of course, the two principal con
siderations are light and air, and yet
a room might be flooded with both
air and light and not be a sanitary or
wholesome school. The air and light
must be scientifically arranged with
reference to their service to the pu
pil and the use he can make of them.
Architects are making this a study
of Itself, but nevertheless tho parents
and the taxpaylng public aro always
entitled to urgo perfection in a matter
that so vitally affects the children.
And whero tho parents are indiffer
ent to such things, as they often are,
tho scientist is left to save the day.

A Mexican Whitewash.
The verdict of the Mexican court
ot Inquiry, after six months ot pre
tended investigation, that "tho deaths
ot Francisco I. Madera and Jqso
Maria Pino Suarez were not brought
about by a punishable crime;" In
other words, exonerating all asso
ciated as tho slayers of tho late presi
dent and vice president of the re
public, while discounted from the
first, is nonetheless farcical In the
light ot the conditions prior and sub
sequent to the tragedy. No other
finding was expected or was possible,
So far as public opinion is concerned,
the trouble and expense of going
through the form of an inquiry might
Just as well have been spared. The
taking off of President Madero and
Vice President Suarez is regarded oq
one side as wanton murder, and on
the other m Justifiable homicide, and
no official whitewashing will change
The brother-in-law of Madero and
confidential, agent at Washington ot
the present Mexican rebels repeats
the statement that Madero and
Suarez were murdered in the palace
and then taken to the prison, and
that the story ot the killing cn the
way, despite the enemy's effort to
protect them, is but a poor concoct
tion. What is even more significant
is tho current story that Madero's
resignation from the presidency was
a forgery and that His removal was
necessary to-prevent Ua repudiation
by him and thus to legitimize the
title of Huerta, In any qyent, the
only effect tho inquiry court's con
elusions, are likoly to havo is further
to incense the aRtl-fluerta forces,
Waiting for Things to Turn Up.
Day-dreaming and air castlo-bulld-ing
are natural and may be really
helpful it indulged simply as stimu
lants to a purposeful and active mind,
They aro but visions of things to bo
nnd we havq it on old and reliable
authority that "Where thero Is no
vision the people perish" and from
yet another that "Your sons and yoiir
daughters shall prophesy, your old
men shall dream dreams, your young
men shall see visions."
But neither Solomon nor the
Prophet Joel had in mind euch a
thing as the comfortable indolence of
sitting down and waiting for things
to turn up. The vision is worthless
without the purpose and the capacity
to press onward in an effort of ful
fillment. It is a mistake to allow
tho boy to think that reward comes

plain, "sot only places the company

Philadelphia Record; Bishop Donohuo
of Wheeling, prescribes to both mtno
owners and mine operatives more religion,
attendance at church twice on Sunday
and frequent consideration of the Beati
tudes posted on the walls of their homes.
The prescription Is of practical value. It's
no patent medicine, but most ot the
patent medicines have been tried and
found worse,, than nothing. Bttter and
wiser men on both sides ot th labor
line aro greatly needed.
