The Doubtful Waeer of Battle.
Probably the moat stubbornly fought battle
in history la still In progress between the lines
of the Germans and the Allies, and. In the na
ture of things, must soon come to an end either
as a victory, for one or the other of the combat
ants, or as a draw with both stopped by ex
haustion. But whatever the wager of battle, it Is too
much to expect the outcome to be decisive of
the whole war, for defeat of the weaker arms
ia hardly apt to force complete surrender or
start Immediate suit for terms of peace. A sub
stantial victory, however, could not fail to in
spirit, and enthuse the winners and correspond
ingly depress and discourage the losers, though
it might drive them to more desperate efforts
to re-establish their military prowess. On the
other hand, if gains and losses are approxi
mately offset, each of the combatants may be
claiming the victory, and the actual result be
so obscured as to render unbiased judgment Im
possible for the moment, If not to keep it In
dispute for all time to come.
Th( Coming Democratic Slash Fnnd.
"To him that hath shall be given" ia tbe rule
that applies in pollttcs.'or, to uae more explicit
language, the party -In power always finds it
eaaler to replenish the campaign fund with the
sinews of political warfare than the party out
of power. That was the complaint of the demo
crats when the republicans were In tbe saddle,
and now the situation is naturally reversed with
the democrats administering the pie counter and
stirring the legislative program. For authority
we quote from the reliable old democratic Brook
lyn Eagle, whose Washington correspondent di
vulge this open secret:
Despite the proapert that the democrata may have
an easy time this fall carrying' the houae, the party
leaders are perfecting plana aa If they looked for the
fight of their Uvea. Tha democratic congressional
committee and the democratic national committee,
which are working In cloaa co-operation, appear to be
well supplied with funds. They are maintaining lav
ish, headquarters In Washington and are conducting
an extensive literary campaign. In the recent Malnu
lection a corps of apellblndera and press agents wero
transferred from Washington to headquarters estab
lished at Augusta. The democrata spent a large sum
of money In tha Maine campaign.' On tha other hand,
if -tha atorlea of their leaders are to be accepted, tha
republicans are In a bad way for money.
, The car load of gold coin that used to be ship
ped annually on paper tor allotment among lo
cal patriots will this year come from democratic
headquarters, and be consigned to the accredited
democratic slush fund distributers. Political
workers are" hereby notified to put their appli
cations In early.
From Dictator to Dictator.
The latest report from Chihuahua is that
"immediate resignation" of General Carranza
aa first chief of the 6onstlfutlonallsts is "the
only basis" on which General Villa will agree
to a settlement of the differences between him
self and Carranza.
It Is the same old story of the last three
years.. :It Is exactly what Carranza said as to
Huerta and forms but another link in the chain
of dictatorship that la choking all semblance of
orderly government out of Mexico. From the
first. It haa seemed Inevitable to Americana that
Villa and Carranza would tall out, and even it
Carranza should do the unexpected and yield to
Villa, there ia no sort of assurance that the lat
ter would not soon tire of anyotber man ele
vated to the leadership by or with bis influence
or approval. While yet protesting unselfish
motive and his own self-abnegation Insofar aa
office holding for which his illiteracy and ban
dit life wholly unfit him ia concerned, Villa
by bla persistent refusal to be satisfied with any
body not of his own naming, gives ground for
suspecting that nothing sort of his own exalta
tion will quiet him. It the situation resolve
itself down to the old status of merely a choice
of dictators, neither side will have any good
claim to the sympathy of outsiders.

The Exposition is a Go.
Now that San Francisco has finally declared
that the Panama-Pacific exposition will be held
in 1918, with no postponement, 'It Is time for
Americana to cease all cavil and question on
the subject and help to pull for the success of
the enterprise. -
What If a few foreign cations have withheld
or withdrawn their support, so long as the
others, together with nearly all the states of
our union to some extent or other, are stand
ing by their pledges of participation? So far
as support goes, this, added to the backing of
the federal government, ought to be sufficient.
Most of the exposition visitors, of course, will
be from our own land and the same thing would
have been true even if there had been no Euro
pean war, though, perhaps, not in the same
proportion. The war will naturally keep many
Europeans away from the fair, but by the same
token . the ' American patronage should be
greater. ' ,
San Francisco la bound to be the one big
center of attraction on this continent In 1915.
With the Panama canal new and. staring In the
Interest of the great show, cistern people will
have the added novelty of traveling through the
canal and up the Pacific coast. Thia ahould
entice-many who otherwise might not go. But,
ot course, the greater pilgrimages will travel
overland, for the most part through the Omaha
gateway, the most direct of all routes. Herein
lies immense opportunities tor us ot Nebraska.
Undoubtedly thousands who go west on this
pleasure Jaunt will aluo be alert to business and
Invebtnient opportunities, snd so, while Omaha
and Nebraska are boosting' for the exposition?

1 MATT BPADEJR,
Did Maeola Unfranchise the Negrrar
BRADHHAW, Neb., Sept. 2.-To the
Editor of The Bee: In your "Letter
Box" wa note that MarJorle Dorman
makes the statement that Lincoln en
franchised the slaves. According to
Webster, the word enfranchise haa two
distinct meanings. One la to "set free
or liberate:" the other Is to "confer the
electoral franchise upon." . Now aa to
what Lincoln said or did not say on the
question of woman suffrage. It seems to
us, la going a long way back to find
argument to either' prove or disprove
women's right to vote. Lincoln dealt
with tha Issues tat confronted him at
the time. Lincoln made another state
ment when about the same age and It
waa Ilka thia: 114 happened to be where
a lot of alave traders. Jti carrying oa
their diabolical and nefarioua buslneas,
had stripped a negro v girl almost nude
that htr relative value In ' the market
might be fixed. Uncoln said: "If over
I have a chance to hit that thing, I will
hit It . hard." Lincoln had the chance
and kept his word: but In his emancipa
tion proclamation ha only enfranchised
tha negro with freedom, but not "with tha
ballot. It took tha boys In blue who had
returned to their homes, at an election
held In 1867. to ratify the fifteenth amend
ment. The writer, who had the pleasure
to know something about Uncoln when
he did things, feels quite confident that
had woman suffrage been as prominent
an Issue In Lincoln's 'time as at present
and a delegation ot women had waited
upon .htm, he would not only have re
ceived them courteously, but would have
given them a direct answer. Lincoln was
no dodger, neither did ha have any of
the wlll-o'-the-wisp proclivities, and
would, no 'doubt, have reiterated what he
aald on "June It. 1S36," noth withstanding
Mr. Agnew'a "dubiety" nor MarJorle Dor
man'a "specialising.' JOHN B. DEY.
Praise far the Uaraaawe. .
LINCOLN. Bept a.-To the Editor pf
The Bee: I desire to take to task those
who criticise Mr. Matt Spader for his
enthusiastic defense of Germany tn the
present crisis In Europe. I venture to
say that If our country ware In trouble
Mr. Spader would be Just aa enthuulaatlo
In defense of our flag. Generally speak
ing a man's loyalty to his adopted coun
try depanda largely upon the loyalty he
haa for hts native land.
I am in sympathy with Germany. I
believe Oarmany was forced to fight
agalnat the wlshea of the kaleer. I be
lieve when the truth la known Oermany
will not be held responsible for bringing
on the war. It had to fight for its Ufa.
No one ran say Andrew Carnegie ta a
Herman, still whan he returned from
Scotland he gave an Interview, the sub
stance of which was that tha kalaer waa
not responsible for the war.
Wa should remember Oarmany baa been
at peace with the world for more .than
forty yeara All other nations have had
war, including eur own, during that time.
We ahould remember that America never
had trouble with Germany. Wa ahould
remember Germany waa the first' nation
to recognise our Independence. Germana
have helped build up America by culti
vating Its soil, establishing tta Industries,
encouraging commerce and art. and ara
today among our most aubstanttat cltl
sens. They have attested .their loyalty
to their adopted country on our bettle
f lei da. They are broad-minded, law-abiding,
peace-loving and home-lovlng. They
despise deceit, hypocrisy and double-dealing,
and we ahould be patient with thoae
who become a little over-enthusiastic ta
extending their good wlshea across tha
aea to their fatherland.'
I am not a German, but I waa reared
among them, and I know whereof I
apeak. JOHN Q. MAKER.
Alexander Weayoa Bannel la Iiw York World.
The career of Herbert Henry Asqulth. prime min
ister of Great Britain, who has become an outstanding
world figure, has In earn of Its four epochs been
marked by strength and surrees. Without the aid of
wealth he won hla way by scholarships to Oxford,
where he proceeded from one. academic triumph tp
another; he won hla way Into Parliament by his mag
nificent clearness In enunciating his political princi
ples of liberalism; without Influence he secured a
commanding position at the English bar, and, having
proved himself during the last six yeara the strongest
stateaman of modern tlmea In England by hla over
throw or the houae of lords, and by the final placing
of the Irish home rule bill on the statute books, he
haa now In foreign policy achieved a hew fame.
When he waa cartooned by the famous Spy In
Vanity Fair in the great daya of that journal, the
only description underneath waa tha Single word.
"Brains."- Hla unusual endowment of abilities com
bined with great moral strength explains a career
that la not by any means romantic, but which will
leave a permanent mark on history. . .
Won Ilia Edaeatlan by Hard Work.
His father died when he waa a boy of 10, and, being
only a small manufacturer, the means of the family
were so limited that .entrance at Oxford was only
possible because he swept the boards of prises at the
City of London achool, and won not merely aa open
scholarship, but also a leaving exhibition. When he
began at the bar he waa unknown to the powerful
solicitors upon who favors the young barrister must
depend, and he helped to maintain himself by contrib
uting articles on economics to the Statist and othtr
leading papers. His rise at the bar waa in no sense
meteoric, but he did achieve a great triumph by his
"brilliant and (overwhelming rrora-examlnatlon of Mr.
MacDonald, the manager of the London Times,. In the
historic case ariaing out of the Plggott forgeries.
"You take him, Asqulth; you will do It well enough,"
said Sir Charles Russell, who led for Parnell against
the Times. He did It well enough, and Mr. MacDon
ald left the wltnesa box ao utterly discredited In Jour
nalistic circles that he had to resign his position.
But although Asqulth achieved a high place at the
bar, and might well have risen to be lord chancellor.
It ia not as a lawyer that he will be remembered, nor
was there any belief among his colleagues at the bar
that he would spend hla life in a legal career. Aa I
heard Lord Haldane say of him at a dinner given In
his honor by the Eighty club shortly after ha became
premier: "I have known our guest all the days of our
working lives, and from the beginning "of his career at
the bar we alwaya aald that one day Asqulth would
be prime minister."' . '
In his parliamentary Speech he possesses one gift
In an Incomparable degree, which la probably derived
from his years of experience in the courts. He can
represent the weakest of caaes as though It were o
overwhelming strength, the most startling of Innova
tions as though it were an every-day procedure, the
moflt disreputable of propositions aa though it were an
axiom of universal acceptance. And yet Mr. Asqulth
has always had the parliamentary manner and auc
ceeded in making the Houae of commons forget the
lawyer , In the statesman. Thia has contributed
greatly to hla parliamentary success, for It Is com
monplace at Westminster that the House of Commons
does not love lawyers.
Gladstone Recognised Hla Proanlae,
Mr. Oladstone took to him from the beginning, and
when ha formed hla last government In 1892 took tho
young barrister from the back benches to a seat on
the treasury bench and made him a member of the
cabinet aa home secretary without any preliminary
ministerial training. He administered that Important
office In a way that insured the success which Mr.
Gladstone predicted for him after he had delivered
hla maiden speech in they House of Commons, when he
said: "The apeech we have just listened to from the
honorable member for Eaat Fife proves that there
haa been made a valuable addition to the debating
strength of this house and augura well for the day
when the honorable gentleman .will stand ilgh in the
councils of the nation.'
, It waa during hla administration of the home office
that the British troops fired upon some riotous strik
ers at Featheratone, when several men fell to the bul
lets of the firing party. This cauaed an angry debate
In the House of Commons, ted by the labor and radical
sections, and Asqulth assumed all the blame and re
sponsibility, which might well have prejudiced his
chances of still higher promotion in a party depending
so largely upon labor votea. It la only within the last
two yeara that, by the publishing of some papers
after the death of the officer responsible, (t became
publicly known that not merely had Aaqulth not.
ordered the troops to fire, but had given express in
structions to the contrary. But, Ilka all strong men,
Asqulth can endure In quletneas.
The ministry which Aaqulth had resigned his prac
tice at the bar to Join was short lived, and then As
qulth did something that Is splendidly Illustrative of
the simplicity and manliness of his character. When
he returned the seala of his office to his sovereign, he
went back to hla chambers In the temple, and donning
hla wig and gown, resumed his practice In the courta.
It was entirely without precedent for a cabinet min
ister to do this, and particularly one who had held
the high office of home secretary, during which he
waa called upon to make decisions overriding the
Judges In caaea where appeals were made for the ex
ercise of the royal prerogative of mercy. The matter
waa brought up In the House of Commons, and in a
few straightforward sentence Aaqulth explained that
his own private fortune waa not sufficient provision
for his family, and that tn the clrcumatancea he did
not feel It derogatory either to his personal dignity or
to the dignity Of an ex-secretary of state to resume
hla work. The fart that he bad married but the year
before one of the wealthiest heiresses v In England
made this atatement the more revealing of his sternly
tils Saeeeaa aa Prime Mlalster. '
When ha became prime minister. In 1908, having
served two years aa chancellor of the exchequer, the
forces of the party ha led were almost entirely de
pleted or morale and strength by season ot the per
sistence of the Houae of Lorda in the arbitrary exer
cise of ite control over parliament by maintaining
their hereditary rights to refuse to. paaa liberal legis
lation through their chamber, however .large the lib
eral majority might be that had paaaed It In the com
mons. The year after he took office be gave the
lorda battle on the Issue of the budget, declaring to
the country that the whole representative system was
In peril unless the supreme control of the nousea ot
commona over finance waa secured. Hla fight with
the lords, Jn which he thoroughly overthrew them,
leaving them no control whatsoever over finance and
only a power of delay and revision over domestic leg
islation, raised him from a farty leader to a 'na
Hla firmness In Oeallng with the little pinchbeck
revolutions that Sir Edward Careon tried to work
VP through the agency of soma officers in Curreta
camp when he assumed the portfolio of minister of
war made hint perhaia tor tho ftrat time a world
figure. Today he appear as one of the strongest
statesmen England has ever known, and It waa his
recent speech In tha House of Commona la which he
referred to the "Infamoua proposals" of Germany
during the negotiations that, even more than tha
speeches of Sir Edward Grey, rallied tha British reo
plo as one maa In Its determination to prosecute the
war to the end.
