OMAIIA. Fob. I. To the Editor of The
Bee: hast Hnturday an article appeared
ln The Bee's letter Box entitled. "Klnglo
Standard," signed by "Equal Rights." I
read It. Therefore my letter.
In this world thero Is a class of ncopl.
who make the laws, there in a class who
benefit by the laws, a class that obeys
the laws, a class that Interprets tho law,
a class that ovadea them, a class that
scoffs at laws or existing government
If laws were clear In meaning, so many
people could not evade them, ro man
people would not be needed to Interpret
them. If Attorneys did not have laws to
Interpret according to the need of their
clients, who expect to benefit by tho In
terpretation, said attorneys would b6
forced tq seek other occupations. If the
people Who made the laws always know
tho exact conditions ot things or situ
ations for which they were making laws,
so many fool laws would' not be made.
Thero Is another class ot peoplo In this
world who arc known as hypocrites.
A hypocrlta Is a man who goes to
church on Sunday, donates generously to
charity and the missionaries. On Mon
day ho "fires" a few of his employes
because he hears hard times are comlns
and he wishes to retrench, although hla
firm Is doing n profitable business and
shows no indications of losing n dollar's
profits. HO thinks nothing further of
the men "let out." Then, perhaps, he
"freezes, out" rome competitor In the
month's business; visits Just such places
nights as tho ono which was recently
"shot Up." But ho doesn't consider him
self a hypocrite.
His fc, a prominent church worker,
a member Of the woman's club, also an
enthusiasts suffragette, gives her
opinion freely as to the ways and means
whereby this world could be bettered,
providing; women were In power. How
dn wo know that same woman does not
play brldaro for prizes (not gambling, oh,
not), chftsc aroUnd all day to clubs and,
perhaps, to other places? This woman
will gofelp freely about her neighbor or
a friend who has met misfortune or til
fame as well as anyone, but we cannot
be sure that milady's youth was free
from shame. Why Is It worse to sin and
be found out than to sin and remain un
discovered? Why Is It that wo have so
many public Institutions which many a
little orphan knows as his only home?
Tho Ford Automobllo company recently
Caused a great deal of discussion by Its

ho can Afford to pay his men such high
wages, how much profit do these manu
facturers of expensive cars make?"
"Ford Is a philanthropist." "It Is an

All that leads to the question. What is
the proper pay for a workhigman? Who
has the right to decide Should It be de
termined by his right to happiness, or his
commercial value to his employer?

answer these questions. A government

Future of the Iteiiulillvaii Party.
WAHOO, Neb., Jan. 31, To thev Editor
of The Bee: Did you over notice how
brave and insistent the typical democrat,
ana especially the typical democratlo or
gan becomes when that party Is In
power, and how he sympathises with
tho republicans over their downfall, and
how cocksure they aro that thoy know
Just what causes Contributed to the de
feat, and also with what hesitancy they
maintAln that tho republican party, be
ing dead, that It can never live again?
In an editorial of January SO tho
World-Herald, under the title "Repub
llcan Prospects", says "the republican
party haa gone tho way of tho old whig
party and for the same reasons." It has
no principles on which to Wage a cam
polgn. No one can tell what aro tho
principles of the party." The editor
then proceeds to enurhcrato other Yea1
sons why the party Is dead beyond a
doubt, and concludes the tirade by say
ing "there could be no other reason for
coming to life except to secure the of-
Of course the Inference Is that tho fac
tion of the party that Is altogether re
sponsible for the overwhelming defeat
of Mr. Tnft In and the faction that
Insisted that, no matter how good a re
publican a man had shown himself to
be, nor how Able a president, it should
bo permitted to Ignore the advice of our
tlrst president and seouro a third term,

In the formulation of a party platform
In other words the republican party Is
dented qualities ot segregation and Its
policies, qualities ot crystallisation that
are historically true of the democratlo
party. Many people thought that At the
close ot the, civil war that the democratlo
party had beep shot to death at Ap
pomattox, And it was practically silenced
for a quarter of a century, but It per
sisted In bobbing up At every quadren
nial election with a candidate for presi
dent and a platform of principles that
viewed with alarm the existing con
ditions of things and vehemently de
nounced the party and the methods adop
ted to acquire them.
