Senator Norris' Position.
Hy his appearance in Massachu
setts to urgo voters there to elect the
republican candldato for governor
over his democratic and progressive
party competitors, Senator Norris In
dicates that ho does not doslre to lose
his identity as a republican. Since
his advent In the scnato ho has en
rolled himself ns a republican and
Joined his republican colleagues In
conference and caucus. Looking
backward, It Is remembered that ho
was elected district Judge, and later
to congress several times, and still
later to tho senato, each time as tho
republican nominee, and so fnr as the
public is aware, notwithstanding his
occasional refusal to be bound by
party majorities, he has never de
clared that ho has ceased to affiliate
with tho republican party.
Senator Norris occupies tho com
fortable position of serving a term
which docs not ond for more than
flvo years, by which time tho con
fused political lines of today may be
reasonably expected to bocoma
sharper and mora distinct. Yet he
can oven now look ahead and see
soma things clearly outlined, chief
among them tho indisputable cer
tainty tlyit tho democrats will stick
to democratic candidates, and that
no one nbt bearing their label will
find much favor In any, quest of
domocrattc votes. On tho other
side, tho only way' an opposition
candldato can win over a democrat
In Nebraska is by again uniting tho
voto formerly onllsted undor tho re
publican banner. Senator Norris
evidently sees this and is trying to

Union Pacific headquarters in
Omaha. Hla rtso has boon steady
and rapid. Ho Is- another "Omaha
boy" to reach the top of a groat
business caroer, involving largo In

Thoso who havo followod the
gradual advance of Mr. Pclvuraachor
are ablo to appreciate that now, as
ever, the world holds almost limit
loss opportunities for the young
man of the right qualities, regard-
less of his starting point. "Tom

The Lincoln Highway.
The main thing now in connec
tion with the Lincoln Memorial
Highway Is Us speody completion,
It has boon duly hailed and heraldod
and feted and when built from
ocoaa to ocoan will begin to Impress
Its true significance. Its completion
Is to be expected with all possible
facility, for tho spirit and action of
Amorlcan business Is back of it. Suc
cessful men, not mere projectors of
Idle schemes, aro pushing It, Im
patient to finish tho Job.
After all Is said and done, this
highway Is tho product, very largely,
of tho Influence of tho good roads'
movement and especially the auto
mobile. It might haye como In time
without the auto, but the fact Is it
did not, even though national high
ways are of rather ancient origin,
It is simply another step In the evo
lution of our distinctive rapid tran
sit, brought about at this time as a
direct result of the auto's expanding
popularity. Thus the automobllo
takes Its place up higher as a tan
gible purvoyor of progress.
This boulevard may well be con
sidered as but tho forerunner of
other national pikes with their com
munliing effect upon tho country.
Our great railroad systems havo
beon annlhllators of distance and
time and these roads, on which folks
may travel In private conveyances
from; one end of the land to the
other, will Immensely contribute to
that result. The effect, of course,
will be toward unifying the people
and their Interests and, Incidentally,
lending new impetus to the building
of local boulevards, as a single fac
tor In tho great movement for good
roads everywhere. The results will
be, not wholly pleasurable and sen
timental, but of political and econo
mic value and advantage. In the

Waves unchanged tho status of XrWb

conference or a compromtso by consent,
rrcmlcr Asqulth spoko for tho govern
ment, expressing a desire to further safe-)
gt.ard the rights of the Protestant mi
nority of Ulster, even to tho extent of
temporarily excluding n portion of Ulster
from certain provisions of the act. "Hut !
nothing can bo done," said the'premlor,
"that may interfere with the setting up
In Dublin of a separate Irish legislature
with an executive responsible to It. That
Is tho root principle of the home rule
bill from which we will not depart.
Nothing can be done which may erect a
permanent and Insuperable barrier In
any way to Irish unity. I trust there
wilt be no loopholo or ambiguity about
that." Equally clear and emphatlo was
the reply of the opposition. A. Bonar
Law, unionist party leader, declared his
party woutd support Ulster to any length
unless a referendum vote on the question
was had. If tho voters declared for Irish
home rule the party woutd acquiesce In
the decision. Speaking for fha Orange
Hlsterltes, Sir Edward Carson said no
compromise was possible that did not
agree with the terms of the Belfast cove
nant, which declared tho Independence of
Ulster from an Irish parliament. ThUM
the lines of the contending parties re
n aln as shnrply drawn as before the
leaders had spoken. The premier, how
ever, made It clear that the government
could not be Intimidated by threats, and
that If a law of Parliament were met
by organized armed force It would bo
not only the right, but the duty of the
executive to assert the authority of tho
law and tako every appropriate measure
to enforce it.
Barbarities of War.
Prof. Samuel T. Dutton of New York,
who represented the United States on
the International commission to Investi
gate the causes and effects of tho Balkan
wars, confirm the tragic horrors de
scribed by correspondents who covered
the operations of the armies. The report
of tho commission will be ready In about
two months. "While I cannot anticipate
the report," said Prof. Dutton In a Now
York Times interview, "I can say that
no published statements have adequately
described the tragedies that havo taken
placo under the name of war. The report
will contain accurate and carefully at
tested accounts of the whole war of the
allies that are not yet made known. X
am sure the world will be amaxed that
nations calling themselves Christian can,
either through anger or greed, commit
such barbarities on their fellow men. Cer
tainly there has never been a war In 300
years In which the combatants fought
with such ferocity, and never was an
event so unnecessary and so uncalled for
as ths war In which thoso standing side
by sido In tho struggle to drive the Turk
out of Europe began to rend each other
and to use every known process of ex
termination and devastation. In Uie two
wars l,GO9,0$0 men were engaged and the
losses were not less than COO.000. An es
timate of tho havoo may bo made from
the fact that there were S9O.O0O Turkish
refugees driven from' their homes and 100,-

Vital statistics or Franco for 1912, now
being published, are eagerly scrutinised
because of their bearing on the future
army strength of the republic. A slight
Improvement over the returns of 1911 af
ford a ray of hope, but the situation ad
mittedly is disquieting. There were 760,

Paris shows an excess of t.SOO births over
deaths. In the basin of tho Garonne, the
wlno producing districts of Bordeaux,
eight departments report an excess of
8,165 deaths over births. live other de
partments In the south and four in the
Rhone valley glvo death the top score.
Five departments In Brittany are faith
ful to large families, reporting 17,000 mora
births than deaths, by far the best show
ing In all France. The Echo de Paris
explains that tho socialists am roasters
In southern and southeast France where
"natality" is lowest, whereas Catholics
nre proverbially powerful in Brittany, In
French Flanders, Lorraine and In tho
center, where the birth rate Is highest.
The first general election In Italy under
the expanded franchise made no mater
ial change In the strength of parties in
the Chamber of Deputies. The popular

clerical leaders were re-elected. A symp
tom of growing conservatism Is seen In

member of the Paris communo, and of
Prince Setptone Borgheaa, a radical ex

Austria Check Emigration.
When Austria mobilised Us army re

ing Albania out of reach of .the Balkan
allies, the government discovered that
thousands of absentees had emigrated, to
various parts of North and South Amer

the militarists and steps were taken to
chock the exodus of military material.
The chief offender appears to have been (
the Canadian Paclfla railroad, who '

GRAND ISLAND. Neb., Oct 31 To
the Editor of The Bee: The letter two
days ago by "A Lavycr" In your col
umns virtually justifying the presence In
the ranks of the legHl profess'on of man
known to be dishonnst has callsd forth
from "Old Fogy" an answer which Is
Interesting and based upon Irrefutable
facts. But moro still Is to be sold. In
my own Judgment. It Is really no suf
ficient answer as "A Lawyer" Insists,
to claim that the members of tho legal
profession are as upright and moral as
the generality of other men. I claim
they shoutd bo better men seen and
known to bo' of even sterner moral stuff
of more upright Integrity than business
men, generally. Why? Because they
are really "picked men." They have
been favored by peculiar advantages.
They havo been trained by a course of
several years reading and study con
cerning the rights of man. and th dif
ference between "meum and tuum" and
they have been examined, moreover, by
men of their own profession and pro
nounced fit and proper persons to be
admitted to an honorable profession.
The same Js not true of "the butcher,
the baker, the candlestick maker." . It
facts unfavorable to the establishing of
a good moral character were laid before
a committee of examining lawyers when
a candidate Is before them, no doubt an
unfavorable report would follow, as It
should. And, beyond question, If such
facts are of record at any later stage of
a lawyer's career he should by com
petent authority be promptly disbarred.
If a public view today obtains unfavor
able to tho legal profession In this re
gard, I claim the lawyers have them
selves to thank- for It by their preeent
attitude of seeming Indifference to this
whole matter. OLD FOOT NO. 2.

nicely and makes It absolutely clear that
Dr. Thoma Is guilty xf having been con

well, he ought to' have his head cut off
below his hip pocket.
Had Dr. Thomas been a man like our
state superintendent he never would have

when he shall have served his time as
state superintendent h can go on the
