In filing the land qnesMon aa the root Cause
of the revolution and declaring that war will not
cesse ur til the workers are permitted to own
farm. John Llnd but voices the Tlew of many
atudenta of Mexico. It took the Mexican people a
ong while to awake to their oppression and
rights. Whatever may be said of the short
comings of Madero, he displayed the icsl of
patriotism In his basic claim of agrarian righte
for the manses and the demand tbat land
monopoly cease. Mexlco'a recent history la but a
counterpart of that of every country dominated
by the feudal system. Rome's greatness dated
rom the distribution of land amon the middle
lasses under the new agrarian laws. At the
bottom of all of Ireland's trouble Is the same
blight of bigoted landlordism. The superb and
surpassing greatness or our own country ira
chiefly In the fact of Uncle Barn's being rich
enough to give a fsrm to every man who would,
work It. "
Land and liberty have alwaya gone together
n the progress of the state. And until they are
yoked one to the other In Mexico, Mexico Heed,
not expect more than merely desultory cessation
of war. It cannot reverse or reject the laws of
natural progress. Land aristocracy never, has
an never will develop1 country.' If It could not
under the more favorable conditions of ancient
or medieval civilization, it certainly cannot hope
to do so today. So long, therefore, as the Mexi
cans msy properly be described ss "a homeless
nation," to use the' words of Mr. Llnd, peace and
order are' Impossible, for human nature Is not
undergoing any fundamental changes. This
leader and that, this provisional president and
that, may come and go and all sorts of theories
may be assigned for the trouble In Mexico, but
until this one primal cause la done away with,
until the people are freed from the bondage of
feudalism and permitted, as other civilized races
are, to enjoy their commonest of all rights, next
to the right to life, let us not delude ourselves
by believing that Mexico la or can be at peace.

Any Two-Dollar Bills Get Loit?
A few days ago The Bee nailed the lie being
spread through the state, by a circumstantial
account on the authority of the Kearney Hub
and the Lincoln Journal, of how $5,o60 In two-
dollar bills distributed among, purchasable vot
ers In Omaha at the last election were receipted
for bv nuttlna- one crossmark onooslte the name
Sf one of the candidates for governor and throw
ing away tne vore on an me rest oi me ucnei.
Ibe Bee punctured this air bubble by showing
that out of a total vote for governor, aggregating
24,918,' despite the long ballot and other dis
tractions, only 1,530 failed to vote for land com
missioner, .being the lowest of flee, on the state
But we now have a more striking exhibit to
make In comparison of Douglas county with
"Lancaster "county, where the Lincoln Journal
holds forth, and with Buffalo county, where the
Kearney Hub has Its headquarters.
Computed on the percentage basis, out of
very hundred voters In Douglas county who
narked their ballot for governor, only 5.1 failed
to vote for land commissioner.
In Lancaster county the total vote on gov
ernor is 13.007, and on land commissioner 12,-
208, so that out of every hundred voters mark
ing their ballots for governor six failed to vote
tor land commissioner.
, In Buffalo county the total vote on governor
is.4,433, and on land commissioner 4,145, so
that out of every hundred, voters njarklng their
ballots for governor 6.2-failed to vote fof land
commissioner. . , ,- -
The fact that the complaint of excess votes
for governor would have Wore of a 'basis In Lad
caster county and In Buffalo county than It has
In Douglas county warrants the -question. Did
any of those two-dollar bjljs get lost and land in
the vicinity of our critics?
Msny an old printer and newspaper .man
either now or once active "at the case" or at the
editorial "end of tha name" here In the middle
west will bow hla head in melancholy reminis
cence at the newa that "Bob" Burdette has
turned in his "30." For the time was many
years ago when Burdette was amung the beat of
lhem and. the jnost popular of Illinois and Iowa
newspaper men. He was always known as so ex
cellent worker and a genial friend and. It aeems,
he never lost either of -these aa ble-llfe merged
Into the ripeness of years and the serener shades
of religious employment. The Rev, Robert J
Burdette continued to be the old "Bob" of other
daya to those who knew him first. And it is note
worthy that after retiring from a brilliant, but
rather brief, career In the ministry, he returned'
to his first love Journalism. Like most other
men who go Into it. It held his affections fast
and gave play, ample play, to his larger, better
powers. , . ,
The account of hs death merely adverts to
tne fact tbat the former Mrs. Burdette' was an
Invalid and the romance of the marriage at what
wts supposed to be her death bed. OJd friends
along the Mississippi tell many beautiful stories
of the constancy of thla young husoand's love
and devotion to hla invalid wife. That a man
with such a heart as Bob Burdette had should
rise to the estate of his larger and later useful
ness and Influence Is not at all strange. He had
ability, talent, versatility, but before all he was
ever characterized as a man with a heart and
such a heart as enabled blm to smile through his
sorrowa and to make others smile. And great
men tell ua one who can do that Is a benefactor.
No Politics in Honoring: the President
The Lincoln Star thinks The Bee, in urging
an Invitation to President Wilson to stop
Onisha on bia return trip from San Francisco.
"forestalling any paper that may be In sympathy
with the national administration." and belnx 1
sympathy with the national administration, the
Star wants the invitation to give preference to
Lincoln as the Nebraska stopping place. Let us
assure the Star, and others interested, that with
ine Bee if la not a question jot aympatby or ol
Itlca, but of courtesy and respect for whomnoevei
occupleg the: high office of chief magistrate of
the pat ion. In honoring the president, -political
lines are effaced.
War Dazes Language
oaalderrd Reread Deerrle-tloa.
"It la hopeleaa for any man to attempt a dfecrlp
tlon of the war In Europe The Enallah lansuase
cannot do It. nor any other Iankuar."
Thla la the chief tmpreealon brought back from
K'irope by Irvln Cobb, war correponont an,j humor
lt. who haa arrived In New York from tha battle
fl'Ms of B'lsrlum and northern France.
In an Interview In the New York Poat Mi. Cobb
aays: "We have ueed up all our adjoctlvea on five
alarm flrea, aana-murdera. Hlocum dleaatera. political
conventions. We haven't rot anythlnt left for auch
a war. and It aeems pitifully inadequate to fall back
on tha .stork phraaea. It's too bin to comprehend.
Yo'J start out In the momln with tha heat Inten
tlona of graaplne the farts of events and writlns
bully atory, and you coma horrw In tha evenlns daaed
and brow-beaten. There never haa been anythlna
like It, Here you (iet a Gettysburg for breakfaat, a
Chancellorevllle for lunch. Waterloo for supper, and.
to make a Btod measure, they throw In a Sedan
around tea time.
"K Is almrly imiwalble. for Instant, to tell how
KM.' men died. You can't write It. and people who
read Jt couldn't realise the horror of it. Thy would
he too stacitered. too amased by the proportions of
the atatemcnt. What you can do, tneuajh. la to pick
out tbo story of how one man died, and tell that,
msklna; him typical of the hundred thousand or the
million or whatever tha figures may be. As for
aaurtlee. I'm convinced they have been much
frqater than any of the combatants has admitted. I
should not attempt to u" thm because it would
be absurd to hazard a venture In flsures so lsrgs.
You could only approximate It by hundreds of thou
Bark of the Army.
One thins that Imnreaaed me was the . way in
which you become habituated to the terrlbte side of
war. The flrat time I aaw Germans enter a captured
town. I was thrilled all over: tha first time I saw a
dead soldier I, felt that I ' could write a whole atory
around that one fact. But arter a mue time t iuu.iu
that the moat distressing scenes of ru:n. death, and
deeeolatlon made very little concrete Impreaalon upm
me. As a matter of fact, one dead man Is a are
deal more dletresalng than several hundred or 1.CFV
and the most appalling- scenea I wltneaaed were not
thoee on the , battlefields, but In the baae nospltnis
where Door charm were dylnc out of sound of tha uns.
"Anyhow. , the worst thing about a mmieiicia
fen't how It looks, but how It smells the awful stench
of unburled bodies, of Stale aunpowder fumes, of
human sweat, of rottlnc corn, of damp, ruined houses.
That Is the way it affected me. Yet 1t Is remarkable
how efficient! nature works to cover up the traces
ol war. Visit tha aame scene a few weeks later, and
you'll find grass growing In the ruts made by tho
cannon, "new olla-e burgeoning on treea that were
stripped bare, and moat of the disagreeable traeea of
death removed. It takes very little time for natu.-.j
to obliterate the track of an army.
"Even so. however, I am convinced that the. arter
effects of this war will be Incalculable. I should not
care, to try to estimate -the time It will take the
winner to recover from It; fifty years Is a moderate
gueaa and means comparatively little except In a
suggestive setlae. The loser. I am convinced, will
scarcely ever recover from It. Belgium. It Is true.
Is simply the wreck of a land today, but I am In
clined to believe tha Belgians will rehablllate them
selves a great deal faster than people think.
Atrocities aad Rayaaeta.
I have relegated the atrocity atory to the umbo
that eon tains the bayonet-charge story. I saw sev
eral hundred thousand German aoldlers. many nf
them-wounded, and thouaands of Belgian, French an.l
English prlaoners, many of them also wounded: and
besides this 1 talked to doctors, who, themselves. baf
attended to thousands of wounded.. I did not see a
slncle bayonet wound, and 1 did not. hear of any
men who had been wounded by bayonets. While I
waa In England early in tha campaign, one soldier
waa sent back from France with a bayonet wound,
but It came out that be had been hurt accidentally
by falling cn a comrade's bayonet. Neither did I
bear of any lance wounds. Aside from the early
days of the war. there has been vary little cavalry
charging, I think. Moat of the wounded we saw
bad been hit by shrapnel." ,v
"Did yen see any of the forty-two-centimetre

"No. We saw tha twenty-one-oentlmetres on tne

tor of The Bee: The returns for Douglas
county and for the atate of Nebraska
ahow tliut If th people calling them
selves prngreaalvea had not placed a
ticket Ir. the f l 1.1 this year, that we
w-ould have elect d every member of the
leglalature trom Doufrlaa county and
that we would have ce ted every state
officer below grvernor.
Several of tho Ir-idlng progrcilve have
told me since tin; election that they are
tired nf acting hs assistant democrats
and thst they will be back with the re
publican party in 19H. If the progrrs
ilve had goDe Into the republican prl
marlea tills year In this county It Is more
than likely that they would have secured
a share of the candidate for the legis
lature and In that way they would have
gained ns well as the republican ticket.
But this election shows them that they
are siwply naslotlng the democratic party
to win nheti the majority of the people
of the country are opposed to democratic
As I have predicted a number of time
since the election of Mr. Wilson In 191S.
the republican party will come back in
1916 and win . the presidency. Hon.
Ross Hammond of Fremont wrote me a
few day ago that one more victory for
the democrats like the one they claim to
have won cn the third day or November
and they art done for.
Moat of the progreralves are high claaa

comes them back with open arms.

OSCEOLA, Neb.. Nov. . To tho Editor
of Th Bee: After a somewhat careful
analysis of the vote In tho late election,
I am firmly convinced that tho election
of the democratic ticket was as needless
as war. provided that the republicans
nsa used any judgment whatever In their
nomination of a man for governor thai
could hav gotten the republican vote on
election day. Nebraska la republican and
the only thing necessary to do Is to nom
inate men for office that can get tho
republican vote on election day.
We will aoon be in the midst of another
primary election to select a man for the
United States senate to defeat Hitchcock.
No democrat haa any license to be elected
senator from Nebraska and need net be
If the republican will lay aelde their
petty differences and get to work.
We have a man In tho Fourth congres
sional district who can carry the solid
republican vote of the state besides ral
lying to his support thousands of dem
ocrats and that person Is none other than
Congressman Charle H. Hloan of Geneva,
Neb. He Is honest, clean, fearless and
forceful and ha a record In congress for
representing his district that any repub
lican can be proud of. A good debater, a
fine speaker and tin the prime of life,
he can meet the enemy anywhere they
may choose to have him, and the best of
all has a district behind him with a 5,000
republican majority. I nominate for
United States senator, to succeed G. M.

Caaaty Fair Location.
OMAHA, Nov. Is. To the Editor of Th
Bee: The Douglas county fair Is now re
ceiving some discussion among the farm
ers as to what It I. what It haa been,
and what It may be made, tr given the
proper atttentlon by those most Interested
rn upbuilding the agricultural Interests
of the county. ' The general expression
among th farmers and live stock produc
ers Is that the fair should go Into the
hands of the people of the country 11s.
It Is urged that ever since the Douglas
County Agricultural society waa organ
ised In 1S58. that the fair baa been held
at Omaha, and that by IU management
in recent years It ha lost all connec
tion with the general agricultural Inter
est and sentiment Of th people of the
county, who represent grlculture. And
that there Is now a disposition among
the farming classes to take hold of tha
fair and make It a real "county fair."
It la argued by thla aame class of farm
representative thai there Is no reason
why the farmers and breeder of pure
bred stock cannot get together on a lo
cation and establlah the fair for a period
of yenre. aay five or ten rears, sufficient
to Justify local Interests In contributing
suitable grounds and building. There can
be no question aa to the desirability of
a country location for the county fair.
Tha farmers and live stock men are al
most a unit on this feature of . the sub
ject. There Is more or less rlvalshlp,
however, on location. Every town and
village In the county recognises the .lc
'alrablllty of having the fair, located
nearby. There must be a best place, how.
ever, taking all thinga Into consideration,
When carefully weighed by tha sober
i Judgment of th board of director.
The 1914 fair at Elkhorn demonstrated
the claim that a fair can be held In Doug
las county euuid of Omaha, and be well
represented In exhibits and attendance.
This fair was well patronised by country
people, the farmer and hi family, from
this and adjoining counties. The attend
ance from Omaha did not exceed 1W per
son, largely office seekers and their
friends, th city farmers who periodically
farm the farmers. The success achieved
proved thst a country location can ha
made a uaeful and practical place for
tho holding of the county fair.
Proklblttoa aaw Compeaaat Ua.
OMAHA. Nov. . To the Editor of The
Bee; Our liquor frletds are In trouble.
.When they begin to firht th supreme
court of the United State they hava
rather a big Job on hand. We are evt.
dently going to hsvo quite a good, deal
of discussion of prohibition In the next
two years, and I iihould not have mixed
In It so early had Mr. Meyer's first let
ter not been too severs In IU charge of
Immorality and general "ciusedncas" on
the part of prohibitionists. Sine I, for
one. practice what I preach, and don't
know -tha last of either wine or lager
beer. I may venture to say what he would
not catlentty accept from thoa who uao
liquor and vote for pre hi bit Ion. Hut the
theory doea not fit with pracUcal condi
tion. Many own land who vote for
single tax, and Louij F. Poat Jitatlfie
them on the plea that tha "Immorality
IS Institutional, not Individual." A big
question la opened up by Baying' that a
man ahould not vote for the abolition of
slavery as long as kje cwns slave.
If prohibition makas weaklings, the ten
commandments and th sermon on th
mount must hav been given under a
wrong impression. Law is not only a
creature or puouo sentiment, but a
creator of It. Prohibition of certala
things makes strength.
An acre oi autistic Is not required
with th liquor business any mors thaa
with slavery. Lincoln aatd of that and
It advocate what aulu exactly now:
I "Their thinking It right, and our thinking
it wrong, la th precioe tart upon wht h
depend the whole controversy." Almost
any liquor man ran grnnt that principle
utileaa he. haa been wi.wlng too much
of the stuff that ina1e Milwaukee fam
ous. Since the courts have decld' d that
compensation la not necessary, why
should we be blamed If we take them at
their word? Hr the ll'i'ror men no re
spect for the supreme court of the United
states and thoie of the various stotes?
The United itatea may derive a third
of Its revenue from this foune, but It
tools It ten times over what It gets to take
care of the finished produrt We Intend
to end tha partnership, hitherto renewed
from year to year.
What Switzerland vid England have
done doea not apply her. Then, writs
do not run on Nebraska pralrW-s If
a ngle tax were app.l-d tomorrow there
would be no comr nsaion. any inoie thHn
there I now In Germany, when from 1
to 33 per cent of the ri: of land values
Is taken for the public ti-neflt. When the
congress of the United states took ovor
all the Mormon property, the supremo
court decided that co.irse was rih', there
was not a dollar of compensation, but the
saints had to pay rent for the.r own
buildings The public welfare Is the final
