The Governor's Explanations.
Arcompanylng to appointments. Governor
Morehead gives out public explanations, pre
sumably Intended to disarm criticism which he
must feel his selections are Inviting. Ressrd
less of the merits of the governor's choice for
these appointive favors, it la Interesting to note
his declaration In one cae that Mr. Bryan's en
dorsement and request is the controlling factor.
Tnfortunately, the governor does not go so far
as has been proposed by Mr. Bryan himself,
namely, tbst all endorsement and requests for
executive preferment be made matters of public
record so that the people may know Just what
wires were pulled to produce the result. The
complete list of backers urging the claims of Mr.
Bryan's pet applicant would at least satisfy curi
osity as to what company Mr. Bryan In asso
ciating with In the recommendation, for, as we
are all aware, no one has laid so much stress
as has Mr. Bryan upon the wickedness of good
people joining with bad people In nominating
and electing men to office. Now that the gov
ernor has taken the first step, we would like to
see him go the whole length and give out with
each appointment a detailed schedule of all the
influences brought to bear upon hlni or prompt
ing his action.

Pancho and His Christmas Feast.
Havlnc reached the Mexican capital In ample
time. Henor Villa may now take that Christmas
dinner In the national palace as he promised to
do a year ago. True, Senor Huerta has not tar
ried to greet him, nor yet deigned to emerge
from his rose-tlnted bower of ease In sunny
flnain lone enouah to bestow on Senor Villa a
long-distance merry ha, ha which he might
easily be tempted to do, for If ever a bold senor
fell down on his nromlse. it was Senor Villa on
the promise concerning this Christmas feast.
But with hla aood friend to date Provi
sional President Gutierrez presiding at the table,
Villa should eniov the dinner Just as mum.
Somehow, tt has seemed that, while Villa has
displayed much native ability on certain occa
sions, the love of the spectacular In his simply
will net down. He talks a lot for a soldier, but
being untutored In the finesse of civilized war
fare, perhaps, too much should not be expected
of him. There are those who look to him to lead
Mexico out of the travail of her torture, and
mavha ha will: mavbe. after all. he Is a rough
diamond,' though never 'a flower born to blush
unseen. At all events, let Senor Villa enjoy,
while he can, the dinner that comes one year
behind schedule time.
Justice on Trial in Georgia.
"I seriously doubt If he had due process of
law," says Associate Justice Holmes of the
United 8tates supreme court commenting on the
case of Leo M. Frank, the young Cornell gradu
ate and Atlantic business man under death sen
tence for the alleged murder of a factory girl.
Because of the mob spirit and passion envelop
ing the trial at Atlanta and the bungling meth
ods employed by imported detectives, together
with the fact that many Impartial students of
the case are convinced of his Innocence because
of these things and the young man's excellent
character theretofore, his fate has aroused na
Denied a rehearing in the Georgia courts,
Frank's lawyers appealed for a writ of error to
Associate Justice Lamar of the federal supreme
court, who refused to grant It. Then they ap
pealed to Associate Justice Holmes, who finds a
'serious doubt" that the doomed man has bad
"due process of law," and Is, therefore, still con- j
slderlng the case.
So long as such a doubt exists In the mind
of a member of the highest tribunal In our land,
a man's life should not be sacrificed. If France
after a lapse of years found a way to reopen the
Dreyfus case, free America should find a way to
reopen this case and meet out an impartial and
unprejudiced verdict. Justice, as has been ob
served, once gave a MUsourl spoilsman a new
trial because "the" was omitted before the
words, "City of St. Louis," in the indictment.
The plea for Frank rests solely on admitted facts
showing the conditions under which he was ac
cused, tried and convicted.'
Alfred Thayer Mahan.
With all honor due for his great and distin
guished service at sea, Rear Admiral Mahan
doubtless will live longer in history as an expert
authority on naval subjects. Ills voluntary re
tirement before the allotted age, after he had
served his country most acceptably, was really
no retirement at all, but rather the door open
ing Into a-sphere of world-wide and permanent
sevlce which he could not hav hoped to achieve
aa an officer in the navy. As fully gifted with
the pen as the sword, a deep student of world
events. Captain Mahan soon demonstrated his
worth, not alone to his own United States, but
to the world, as a writer on naval subjects of all
sorts. And his works live to serve after him.
It is said that his writings inspired the naval
aggrandisement of Germany under Kaiser Wil-
helm, a close reader and ardent admirer of the
American seaman-author. If that is true, It must
be true to a larger or lesser degree as to the
naval prowess of other countries, our own in
cluded, although, perhaps, we have not done all
that Rear Admiral Mahan would have done had
he been In charge of affairs. It ig very seldom
that a man trained for either military or naval
service has developed literary capacity of such
peculiarly valuable and lasting character as that
of Admiral Mahan. whose fame and work will
fill one of the most conspicuous places in the
history of his country.
The Honorable "Mike" liee, now on the wa
ter works payroll, rises to remark that the
Greater Omaha will be impossible over objec
tion or the suburban towns so long as our city
commissioners are all elected at large without
giving them any assurance of representation.
Perhaps, but how about the Water board, whose
memoers are elected at large and all of whom
live In three Omaha wards? Would not the
annexed territory have as good claim to rep
resentation on the Water board and on the
school board as In the city council?
The coroner and the two appointive metubera
of the Insanity board hold the only no-limit fee
offices left iu the court house, unless w claaa
with them the justice of the peace and the eon-
stables. The Job of reform will not be complete
until these fee mills are also abolished or con
verted into positions with definite salaries.
Tlie Maaurlan laka country In whl h the Ocnnau
and Ruaalan armlea a re Joined In a fierce atruaale for
maatery has been characterised aS tlermany's 'Dlamal

eiplored the country laet year, sivea In the Boeten
Tranacrlpt a vaatly different pt'ture of the region.
Ha lakea. product and people. In part he writes:
Tha Maaurlan lake reason comprlaea Sbont 4,XO
aqtiare mllea, or aa much aa the state of Connecticut,
In the enuthcra part of the province of F.ast Prussia,
having Rmalan territory on the east and aoilth. It f
a rolling country, with elevations aa hlerh aa ft fret
above, aeit level. It Is full of lakea of all elee, from
the flpllrdlngaee, the Jar seat body of freah water In
Owrmany, down to any degree of dlmlnttlvenee, but
every one with a charm of Ita own, partaking In the
rennral ch.irm of th region, which la not to be ex
actly matilied anywhere el. It la known aa the
"lurid of the thousand lakes." The gem of the col
lection la the Maaurlan lakea, In the stricter ene;
a chain nearly 100 mllea long, extending from Anger
burg to Johannlfllnirg. They are all connected by nat
ural etralta or by canals, and lie practically at one
Mora aara of the Lake.
The K')il la glacial depoalt, varying mlxturee at
oan'l and clay, the latter apparently predominating.
Hin'h a soil la Impervious to water when well settled,
ami the result la that the "moraeaes" which the news
paper flraf glata have been talking about lately, prol
ablv aaaumlng hat there tnuat be such In all lake re
Slona. do not exist, ao far a my observation goes.
The depressions which are not occupied by lakes are
generally flilfd with peat, which Is very extensively
cut for fu.l, notwithstanding the very low price of
firewood (aa price go In Germany) due to th abun
dant forests. '
This peat la paasable for a pedestrian at ordinary
times, though that and the clay can get very naaty In
a prolonged wet epell. However, there la dry land
enough everywhere ao that the only real obstacle for
an army, even when the ground Is not frozen, la the
chain of laks. There Is praPtteally a complete bar
rier, In some caaea a double one, of water too wide
for pontooning, except st certain places, principally
where the rsllwaya cross at Ixrtaen and Nlkolalken.
At the former la situated a well-constructed fortress,
Feate Boyn, with a peace garrison of one battalion
of Infantry and another made up of cavalry and ar
tillery. Thia chnln of lakea I th "Anaarburg-JohanriH-Imrg
line" which we see mentioned ao often In -tlie
war newa Just now. Apparently the Oermana will be
prepared to make a very effective stand tl f-c. If tho
Russian atteinnt to sweep the country wt"i a long
north and south battle line, unleas the campaign la
prolonged into the winter, and the lakea freeae over
hard enough to bear troop and artillery. My flahing
acquaintances told me that the average thickness of
the Ice which forma In this region In winter Is one
to one and a half feet.
An Aarlenltaral District.
The country la about as thickly aettled sa the more
proaperoua farming districts of New England. The
aoll varlee a good deal In fertility, but In place where
th mixture of sand and clay la neither too light nor
too heavy, the natural drainage good, and the boulders
not too large or too numerous, I 'saw some very heavy
crops. Wke all the rest of north Germany which . I
traversed thst summer In Ita entire length, this dis
trict Is not on the average rery fertile, but every ro.l
of land la made the moat of for some purpose. About
one-third la too poor for cultivation, and Is In forest.
Aa everywhere In Germany, theae forests are undr
thorough scientific management, and give employ
ment to many people. nd good money to their own
ers, who In many caaea are the state and the munici
pality. There are no cities of any great slse; I-.yck Is the
only one over 5.000 or ao, and mot are me villages.
The people are of thoroughly German tradltlona and
alleglunce. Kaat Pruaala la the Id territory or the
Teutonic knlghta to begin with, and when Frederick
the Great took hold of It, cleared up the laat of th
Polish claim and consolidated the province, he made
a thorough Job of It. He colonised actively with Ger
mans, established all institutions ea th German basis.
Improved the land and the transportation conditions,
and In spit of some flav blood In the mixture there
could be no question ,of any disaffection such ss has
been suspected in Poeen.
Fairly Proape.roae People.
The Maaurlans seem a fairly proaperous people.
notwithstanding their simple living conditions honest,
whole-hearted and sturdy, and by no meana unapprc
dative of the great beauties of their land rejilly and
Intelligently so, and not merely from a bualneaa point
of view, with reference to prospective tourists.
Whatever may be the fate of thia region In tho
war and what follow, Ita lovera can have the con
solation that nothing can destroy Ita beauties unless
It becomes "efficient" unlesa It la made hideous by
human "enterprise" which shall fill It with factories
and proletarians and similar reminders that life Is a
battle; or perhaps with big hotels and automobiles and
servile flunkey and painted women and the other re
pulsive concomltanta of the "leisure claaa." But there
are no cathedrals nor other works of man which can
never be replaced. The forest might suffer In place
from a fiercely fought war, and th population might
diminish and their homes lie destroyed, but the lakes
and the hills will alwaya be there, and nature will re
store In a few yeara all that may have been loat. And
even If the 81av ahall be the ruler, he Is really not
such a bad fellow sfter all, and I suspect that anyone
who knows his language and come to him In a
friendly way, aa I did t my Kaat Prussians, may yet
carry away sa delightful memoriae aa I did.

OMAHA, Dec. 2.-To the Editor of Th
Bee: After having passed through the
many varying vicissitudes of life I have
come to believe that to the victor belongs
the spoils. Thia seems to be the natural
law of order n problems of war. That
ass one of the reasons why Hannibal
fought: Caesar was of the aaine belief;
NapoUjon followed the same courae; Wel
lington forced It on the defeated French;
and we. ourselves, followed suit In the
Revolutionary, Civil and Spanish wars.
The same la true In politics. To the
victorious party Justly belongs tha spoils
of offices. This Is absolutely necesaary
for the fulfillment of party principles and
pledgee. When a state elects a certain
party to power the people voice, by their
votes, their confidence In that party and
place the destiny of the state In Its keep
ing. They elect one party to power be
cauae the pledges of its platform appeala
to them and they ax poet theae promises
to be carried out. This can not be unless
the heads of the several offices, together
with their subordinates, are in complete
harmony with party prinoiples.
When the republican party was In con

ism had to go. The party stood firm In
Ha belief that certain policies of govern
ment waa for the best Interest of the
state, and to get results from It convlo
tlon It placed men In office who were In
sympathy with Its policies.
The trouble with the democratic party
haa been It placing men In important
offices utterly at variance with th great
Intrlnsto principles of the party; men who
were antagonistic to Its platform pledges.
As a result these pledgea wer oft-times
slow to materialize, and people began to
think that the democratic party was a
Preaident Wilson has proven It to be a
grand success because he appointed capa
ble democrats to positions of trust.
It behooved , the democratic officers
elect to see to It that only capable and
efficient democrats are appointed to these
offloea. If the promises of that party are
to count for anything we must have co
operation In every public office from the
highest to th lowest and every Incum
bent and asslatant must be Imbued and
saturated with the glorious eplrlt and
teachings of the democratic party.
If thts state Is to be kept in the demo
cratic column it can only be done by re
warding the democratic workers, the men
who in season and out ot season have
carried the banners of the party and
consistently fought for Its prinoiples.
It will not b urged that all of the ef
ficiency and capability for the perform
ance of duty Ilea in the republican ranks.
Therefore It la of vital concern that our
democratic state officers-elect appoint
men to positions from their own party.

Globe of dew and gossamer.
Fading and ephemeral spirits
In the dusk astir.
Moth and blossom, blsds snd bee.
Worlds must go, as well a w.
In the long procession Joining
Mount, snd stsr, snd se.
Toward the shsdowy brink we climb.
Where the round year rolls sublime,.
Rolls and drops and falls forever
In the vast of time.
Like a plummet plunging deep
Fast the utmost reach of sleep
Till remembrance ha no longer
Csre to laugh or weep.
