Giving Their Whole Case Away.
Tho most eignlflcnnt political straw that has
como to our notlco Is a suggestion by tho Outlook
in Its current Issue. Remember that It Is the
Outlook from whoso staff Colonel RooFcvelt has
Just retired as contributing editor, with mutual
assurances of continued co-operation. The sug
gestion Is that it is Incumbent upon President
Wilson to fill tho existing vacancy on the su
premo bench with a domocrut.
That tho president will appoint a democrat
is naturally to bo expected, but the reasoning
offered by tho Outlook Is particularly Interest
ing. "Tho Biiprcmo court should bo made up
for tho sake of avoiding nny question of polit
ical bins," It tella ns, "as nearly as poBslblo of
an equal number of democrats and republicans.
It is not only proper, but desirable, that tho
new Justice, whoovor ho may bo, should bo a
democrat." Thoro's no contention whatover
that tho supremo court should bo made up of
an equal number of republicans, democrats and
bull mooBors. Not n hint Is conveyed that, to

For a New Convention Apportionment.
Am,ong other duties devolving upon the com
ing republican stato convention is to roglster
approval or dlsapprovol for Nobrnska of the pro
posed change In apportionment of delegates to
futuro national conventions.
To remove tho objection to the overweighted
representation of southern states, tho reDubllcon
national comltteo has formulated . revised plan
taking Into consideration tho vote for president
as woll as tho representation of tho rospectlvo
states In tho electoral collogo. Bforo It can be
offectlvo this apportionment must, by its terms,
bo ratified by tho states comprising a majority
of tho present electoral representation. A
number or republican stato conventions havo
already formally approved tho new apportion
ment plan, Including ono or two of tho southorn
states whoso voting utrongth is cut down.
Although for tho present it makes no differ
ence In tho convention representation accorded
to this state, tho plan should b0 approved by
Nebraska republicans because It Is In tho direc
tion of fairness In fact, because It is the first
stop by any political party to correct an unsat
isfactory condition existing ln the national con
ventlons of all the political parties.
Enforcement of Dead-Letter Laws.
Ono of tho easiest things to do In this coun
try is to get a law enacted. The average Amer
ican community is too indifferent to the work
of its legislators, it seems nolthcr to know nor
care what tho motive, character or influence of
a law IUOy bo. The result often is that statute
books are encumborod with a lot of freak or Im
practicable legislation without any 80 lou
bought of ever being enforced. Some o U e e

sequence of freak law-making.
President Wilson is said to be looking to the
vote of the middle west an the barometor of his
political fortunes. Then, in view of what his
tariff has dono to middle west producers, ho Is
likely to look ln vain for comfort.
Mr. Jones characterizes that senato commit
tee roport as "grossly unfair." The report also
characterizes the attempt of the president to
turn tho federal roserve board over to beclouded
trust magnates as grossly unfair.

LINCOLN, Neb.. July 23. -To the
Editor of The Bee: In tho odltorlal
columns of your valued paper Monday
you charge that figures Issued by tho
state bureau of labor and Industrial
statistics pertaining to tho alfalfa crop
are not In accord with those figures Is
sued by tho government census. I regret
that you fall to give years that theaj
statistics wero gathered.
The legislature of 1913 placed the gath
ering of farm statistics In the State
Board of Agriculture, removing that duty
entirely from the bureau of labor and
Industrial statistics. Perhaps the depart
ment charged with the gathering of sta
tistics concerning alfalfa could give ad
ditional Information which would con
vince you that the report Issued by that
'department ln 1913 was as nearly ac
curate ns that Issued by tho general gov
ernment. I am catling your attention to this
matter In order that you may do justice
to the department and place the blame
or credit, aa the case may be, where It
belongs. CHABXIOS W. POOU

Letters From n Political Heathen
SOMEWHERE. July 22.-To the Editor
of Tho Bee: Maximilian as stated In a
previous letter landed at Vera Crux May
, 1S64. He was shot at Queretaro June
19, 1807. So his career In Mexico was ex
actly three years and three weeks In
length. It is not my purposo to re:ord
the details of that career. Your readers
can find the outline In any popular en
cyclopedia, or for a more thorough study
look to Hall's "Maximilian" and to tho
"Diary of Princess Salm-Salm" for his
trial and last hours; to "Taylor, Maxi
milian and Carlotta." and to Burke's
"Life of Juarca" for the record of his
ln Maximilian of Hapsburg there Is
little to admire. lie possessed physical
courage that commodity is as cheap as
dirt. Most men possess It; and nono
possess it In a more remarkable degree
than pirates and buccaneers.
In London stands a statue of Arch
bishop Cranmer holding his hand in the
burning flame. That act redeemod the
fame of u vaufllatlng time-server. De
spite the elocvent tirade of Macaulay,
and the cold facta recorded by Llngard,
such allusions as the line from Tom
Hood: "And my red right hand grows
rasing hot like Cranmer's at the ataUe,"
awukens a thrill of admiration, which
eclipses tho record of a misspent life.
Nothing In tho llfo of Charles I became
him like his death.
So with Maximilian: he deserved his
fate. By the Infamous Black Decree, ho
had ordered, the shooting without trial of
any Mexican found In arms against his
so-called government. This threat had
been carried out by the butchery of as
bravo men as fell at Thermopylae or
Oeltysburg. Maximilian was as vacll
latlng as James Buchanan. He straddled
between the clericals and liberals, until
Louis Bonaparte deserted him, when his
desperate situation coerced him to make
terms with the churchmen. What secret
promises he made them will never he
known. On that beautiful June morning
when "they led hlin out to die," he
showed to good advantage. The three.
Maximilian, MeJIa and Mlramon, took
their places. Maximilian took Mlramon
by the arm and moved htm to the right.
"Take the place of honor," he said. He
told- MeJIa a pure Indian and the most
decent man of the three to took for his
reward In heaven.
Maximilian was a great dealer In fu
tures. He had secretly mortgaged Mex
ico to France. The ruling passion Is
Ktrnng In death. When the officer of
the squad, according to custom, asked
Maximilian's pardon for what he was
about to do, he replied that there was
nothing to forgive; an officer must obey
orders. He handed a gold coin to ea.h
of his executioners. When Maximilian
was thot, he turned upon his heel and,
uttering some exprcsalcn In German,
died Instantly. Pome understood him ;o
say: "Arme Carlotta," but nt the .time
he thought the empress dead. What he
really said was: "Oh Mann! O Mann!"

LINCOLN, July S3. To the Editor of
The Bee: In a recent Interview Mr.
Metcalfe haa classified himself ns the
candidate for governor who will har.
monUe "all factions." I would llk
"Met" to tell us why he thinks htmsett
so popular with all factions of the demo
cratic party. Is It because of his hav
ing Injected himself Into the senatorial
tight In 1910 as a county option candi
date against Senator Hitchcock, thus
trying to drag a state Issue Into national
pclltlcs? Or perhaps it was that har
monising speech that he made at tha
Bryan birthday banquet when ho styled
all democrats who had opposed Mr.
Bryan at CJrand Island a lot of "Jay
birds pecking at a wounded eaglet"
Doubtless Mr, Metcalfe wlshea us to
forget these little discrepancies of his.
Just aa 1 have no doubt Mr. Morcheadi
would like us to forget his broken promise
and his vetoing the civil service bill;
also how he used his official position as
governor to defeat the Keckley freight
rate bills. Of courss, ho does not wish
the railroad officials to forget this val
uable service which be rendered them,
and, Judging from the active part they
took In getting Mr. Morehead Into the

How It Feels Up Sky High
In an Airship of Zeppelin's
Bver since, as a lioy. I rode with Blndbad the
Sailor on the back of tho roc, I have longed to fly
once more. Of course, we all fly In our dreams,
which sclcnco says Is our Inherited memory of the
time when we were birds, but I novcr see a solid
little white summer cloud sailing overhead of a hot
afternoon but I wish I might tour the blue sky on It.
Now It camo about In the pleasant land of Zep
pelin one day In June aa I sat under my favorite
bronze beech In Nauhelm's lovely park that I heard
Just above my head the pleasant humming of a
smooth running automobile engine. Wondering what
buztlng beetlo made such a sound, looked up where,
Just above the tree tops, cruising In majestic splendor.
In full flight, flags fyllng and passengers waving,
was the "Victoria Lulsc." Count Zeppelin s "Flying
Dutchman" of the air. As I looked, fascinated at
the sight of the great airship sailing on a perfectly
level keel tike somo great "Imperator" of the sea, I
saw the bow slowly Incline upward and soar tike a
bird toward the zenith. Maneuvering In turn, when
at the desired height, the prow was depressed, and
the ship turned on a pivot, presenting the least re
sistance to atmosphere. it waa done with remark
able neatness and dispatch. As day axer day, out
of tho quiet evening air that great bird beckoned me
to fly, I felt tho turo of adventure draw me unlit
temptation, encouraged by many nn abject surrender
ln my past, overcame the last resistance, I. e 100
marks (25). the cost of a two-hour flight. Burcly
tho days of enchantment are como again, for as I
gazed upon that 100-mark note, lo, It became the
magic carpet of Bagdad, ready to carry me through
th air over the cities of earth.
What danger do we run, was naturally our first
concern. Tho Victoria Lulsc, ono of tho four Zep
pelins operated by tho Hamburg-American Steamship
company, has made nearly COO trips, and with Its
threo sister Bhlps fully 1,500 ascensions, carrying over
&0.000 passengers, wthout a single accldont. There
must bo a dozen odd dirigibles of all kinds that have
carried somo 50,00) passengers without a mishap a
record of safety of 100 per cent that challenges com
parison with any form of mundane transportation.
Tho fatherly German government that fusses over
Its people as an old hen over Its chickens, burdening
Itself and them with a thousand "verbotens" (restric
tions), placarding mall boxes with "stamp and address
your letters," will not allow any one to take tho
slightest risk as a passenger on an airship. So after
successfully quieting, the last apprehension of my bet

that I would Jump out and rescue her, we were ready
An auto ride of fifteen minutes from the Kelser
hoff hotel at Frankfort brought ua to the Iron and
concrete airshed, where we found the Victoria Lulse
moored with rope and tackle to a miniature railroad
extending several hundred feet outside the shed. The
pilot Is taking the sun with a sextant. We see being
posted reports of tha velocity of the wind and condi
tion of the ntmosphero being constantly received by
wireless from meteorologlc stations alor.g the well
charted route we are to travel. Unless the weather
conditions are entirely favorable no ascension ts per
mitted. Fortunately the weather conditions are perfect.
Tho pilot In tho forward gondola tests the steering
gear, which, by the way. Is tho same as on a. yacht;
tho powerful gasoline automobile engines of 145
horsepower each, one In tho forward and two In the
rear car, are started, to sea that they aro running
smoothly. The wireless operator from his cabin on
board sends his first message, and we are Invited to
come on board. We mount the aluminum ladder to
thq mahogany finished cabin amldshlp, which Is built
Into tho keel of tho airship Instead of being sus
pended below as aro the two cars (or gondolas, as
they are called) wheh contain the engines and crew
of eight. The comfortable wicker chatrB will accom
modate twenty-four passengers. As tho passengers
embark enough water to counterbalance their weight
Is let out of the .reservoirs situated ln the keel of the
ship, the englneti are started and we back slowly out
of tho air shed. A. small army of men hold onto the
ropes that dangle from the ship to control It when
the cables that attach It to the railroad are cast off.
When free of everything we pause Just long
enough for the photographer to get In his work the
captain calls out. "Cast off," tho floor slants upward
at anything but an alarming angle, tho earth slips
gently away from under you and ln the twinkle of

cathedral, with Jiot the slightest feeling of fear or
dizziness. Should your heart como up Into your mouth
the waiter stands ready to servo liquid refreshment
to wash It down again. The other lady passenger on
our trip availed herself of this gooa excuse to take
a nip of that Justly celebrated German apricot

an architect-only the buildings are not drawings.
they aro real. The river Is not a crooaed line, It Is
riinnlng water. The trees are real trees, and that
little man on the funny, narrow street Is alive. An
octagonal skyscraper looks like a briclc well pulled
out of Its hole and set to one side. You see Into the
heart of a solid city block and find pleasant gardens
and trees and a fountain In the hidden court. The
ruined castle perched on a mountain peak, green with
ivy and moss, with Its lookout tower high above the
trees, shows its loveliness on all aides at once when
seen from above. The fields of green and yellow
grain form the strlpen of a great floral banner, and
the scarlet popples In fields of green carpet the earth
with colors that ravish tho eye. Forest trees from
above look llko a cluster, of domes on a great mosque
and miles of the Rhine with Its bridges and bouts

The shadow of the airship on the mountainside
makes us realize that we are traveling at the rate of
