How to Shorten the Ballot.
The Ilee's definite plan for reducing the num
ber of state offices to be filled by popular elec
tion was put forth as a first step toward a short
ballot. We reallxe that to accomplish this ob
ject by way of constitutional amendment will
require four years, but that is all the more
reason why Its Inauguration should not be de
layed. The second step for the short ballot should
be taken by eliminating all the nonpolltlcal
county offices and consolidating needlessly du
plicated offices. This can be accomplished for
the most part by legislation effective at the ex
piration of the present incumbents' terms with
out doing anyone Injustice.
If we had our way The Dee would retain as
elective county officers only Qie sheriff, clerk,
treasurer, prosecuting attorney and members of
the county board, and we would add a new elec
tive office of comptroller to serve both county
and city as doea now the treasurer. We would
make the surveyor and superintendent ap
pointive by the county board, and the district
court clerk appointive by the Judges as Is the su
preme court clerk and the county court clerk.
The register of deeds and assessor we would
merge as divisions under the county clerk, and
the office of coroner we would abolish alto-

OMAMA, Aug. 14. To tho Editor of The

they are inconsistent, nor ia It a good
Indication that socialism would not abol
War, like commercial Injustice. Ia a
governmental as well aa individual prob
lem. Lnder the war system, the Indi
vidual (socialist or otherwise), may be
forced to fight his fellow man by th
law of self-preservation, tho some as he
may be forced to do so economically
under an unjust commercialism.
Tha socialists, making the most of ex
isting conditions while demanding Just
governmont, possess a "human nature"
different from that of the monarchs and
partisans, who seek not for the possible
conditions which make for peace and fair
dealing. .Their "human nature" would
unlooaen the abnormal social tensions by
removing the state-made obstacles which
now prevent the law of self-preservation
from operating along natural or equal
rights lines. And would not this destroy
the necessity for ono man to help him

I Like uiHtiy other things nwessary to clv-

not true becausn tho socialists Insist upon
it; they Insist upon It because It Is true.

Standards of Public Life.
Two references In the current Collier's to
our standards of public life are conducive to
thoughtful reflection. In his comment on con
gress Mark Sullivan declares that "the Intellec
tual average of the lower house and of the
senate also has become low," and In an edl
tolal discussion on the possibility of llalley com
ing back we find the assertion that "the reform
of the senate which came with direct election"
resulted clearly "in a distinct Intellectual de
terioration." Now. The Bee has always favored election of
senators by direct vote, and la Inclined to agree
with Collier's upon the signs of deterioration,
but we hardly believe It fair to make them
cause and effect. As a matter of fact, we have
never had anything but direct election to the
lower house, while the new method of choosing
benators, with but two or three exceptions, has
not yet been operative. If the standard of in
tellectuality bus gone down In both houses, the
seat of the trouble must be found elsewhere
than in the mechanism of election.
The real explanation lies, we beliexe. more
In the chunked condition of public sentiment
sentiment that responds more to hjsterlcal and
emotional exhortation than to Intellectual ap
peals. Collier's expresses the opinion that a
reaction Is coming. If not already in progress.
We will see whether the coming election the
first In which we will have senators by direct
vote gives us an appreciably higher standard.

which led to the declaration of war. Among the
great statesmen of that time Iuls Adolphe Thlere
alone had the courage to denounce the belligerent
attitude of tha French Parliament.
Shortly after his surrender, on the 3d of Septem
ber, at Hedsn, the French emperor Is said to have
told Count Ulsmsrck that he was driven into the
war by public clamor. But it Is certain that he
fanned the flames Into a fire, for the energetic ef

matter of history. Never In the annals of warfare
was a struKgle ao brief, terrible and decisive. The
result of this momentous event revealed to the. world
the superiority of the Prussian arms, which had
been considered hitherto Inferior to those of Its rlvtl.
In six short months the utter weakness and de
moralization of the French army ns a fighting ma
chine were more than established.
We. In France, for at that time I waa living; in
the emperor's dominions, were Impressed with an
idea that though tho war would be king and bitter,
yet, as in the days of the great Napeoeon, the French
arms would eventually triumph. Alas, how soon our
hopea were shattered, and how quickly we, as
civilians, found it necessary to retreat from the ad
vancing victorious ITussians. of whose reported
cruelty we were in fear.
In the systematic campaign that ended so
gloriously for Germany nothing had been left to
chance. Working on a preconceived plan, the ad
vance of the troops of the Fatherland was orderly
and effective; It seemed as though aome glgsjitle
sham fight was being held, with Franca as the
parade ground. How different with the French,
where those In command, from the emperor down, all

bravery that Is horn of desperation.
