The Donkey and the Water Cart
Ai might hate been expected, Mr. Bryan'
effort to attach tha democratic donkey perma
nently to tha water wagon haa aanously per
turbed the counsels of hla party. Other tjemo-
cratlc leadera hare openly sidestepped the pro
hibition question, although It has been pressed
very closely to the present administration, bat It
now looks as tf they would have to come out
flat footed, one way or another.
This Is not the first time the Peerless Leader
has created consternation In his 'party by insist
ing that bis personal views take precedence He
has a penchant, not only for meddling In state
politics, but for setting on some salient point in
popular discussion, no matter how tenable. In
order that he may, keep the spotlight turned In
his own direction. In this instance be may have
gone too far, for it is doubtful if the democratic
party will nationally espouse the cause of prohi
bition in spite of the position of the southern
wing of the party.
Mr. Bryan, however, Is not such a poor
strategist that he does not leave a way open for
a withdrawal, if necessary. He dearly loves to
stir np the democrats, but be usually knows
where he is going to land when he starts.

' Vocational Training.
Dr. Benjamin Ida Wheeler of the University
of California, la apparently enervated by the
eternal sunshine of the golden, coast; otherwise
he might not Indulge such gloomy views for our
future. "Democracy la disappearing," he aaya,
"and Americans, who rant so much about
democracy, are slipping back Into aristocracy."
On the matter of education, he insists that It is
the solution of our social difficulties, but be
pronounces , against vocational training la the
public schools, saying it is "a trick of the aris
tocrats to sidetrack boys."
Dr. Wheeler should take comfort. If he can
realise it, in the thought that hla distorted views
are not generally shared in by his countrymen
or bis co-workers in the educational field. Voca
tional training does not necessarily mean bind
ing a boy to a fixed position in life, nor la a
liberal education a royal avenue to wealth and
social f eminence. Both are means to an end.
Experience, the only safe guide, has shown that
a vast majority of boys and girls are out of
school and thrust Into Industrial life at an early
age. H Is to help these that vocational training
ia the, publle schools has been proposed. The
dominant Idea Is to fire them such training as
'will be of service to them in the battle of life,
where the entrained Individual la at an Immense
disadvantage. The value of a liberal education
ia sot to be depreciated, but many bachelors of
art may be found driving street cars for 25 to1
30 cents an hour, while plumbers, bricklayers,
carpenters and other skilled mechanics are be
ing paid from 55 to 85 cents an hour.
In the long ran, individual force is the
source of success In life. The rigorous and ener
getic man baa always been, and will always b,
able to command petition and power. Democ
racy la America la not la daager, because cer
tain details of dally existences have been Ad
vanced beyond conditions of a few years ago.
These do sot involve national ideals, and our
aspirations are higher, if possible, because of
the elevation of. the standard of living. Little
likelihood exists of the ton of the laboring man
ia America being bound , to hla father's condi
tlon. It is yet a land of opportunity, .but sac-
cess ever requires ability to plan, courage to
execute, and Industry to persist.
Still, the county officers who spent weeks of
time at Lincoln trying to put across another
term for themselves at the publle crib without
taking the risk of aeeklng re-election are not out
as much as they might have been, seeing that
they kept drawing their ealares out of the
treasury all the time.
Seeing: the Light '
It waa arruad with no attaht effect that the man
agement of Omaha ptihiio utilities la ae leaa "In poll
tlca" under Mr. Howell than It would be under Mayor
Dahlroao, Mr. Howell's partisan prominence and
aotlvtty thus became a heavy handicap to thoa who
ware supporting the (alaotrio light) bill as a nonpar
tisan measure with which party politic had nothing
to do. World-Kami 4.
It is gratifying to note that somebody is.
even at this late day, seeing the light, although
The Bee pointed out this serious defect ia the
whole municipal ownership plan at the very be
ginning. The Bee, and Its editor, publicly
called upon the sponsors of the light bill to
amend it by providing that no one be eligible to,
or bold, a aalaried position under the Water
board la connection with either water or electric-
light plants who should file aa a candidate
for political office or accept a position upoa a
political committee, or within twelve) months
thereafter. Such a provision would have met
the objection to the. measure on the score of
building up a political machine, and with a
further amendment giving the right to condemn
as well aa to buy or build, would have left the
opponents so ground to stand on. But until
now neither the World-Herald nor any of the
Water boarders could be made to realise that.
after last fall's spectacle of three Water board
employes running for office, these suggestions
offered the only road to safety. It is too late
to save the light bill, but it is not too late for
the Water board to adopt a resolution and
spread it on its records, to the effect that any
employe going into politics on his own account
thereby and forthwith dotaches himself from the
payroll for a period of at least a year.

RED WINQ, Minn., April S.-TO the

the general secretary of the national
child labor committee, whose exhibit was
shown In Omaha recently under my
charge, calls attention to a statement
credited to me In on of your issues dur
ing; the week, of the exhibit, that children
were compelled to work so young that
they are carried to work by their fathers.
I recall the Interview with your re
porter. He looked for "local color" and I
told him, among other Items cf Interest
that came from those who had viewed
th exhibit that morning, that one visitor
said he had seen oyster and shrimp can,
tiery children on the gulf coast, especially
little girls, carried to work by their
fathers In the very early morning hours.
becauh they were so drunken with sleep
they could not walk.
The national committee Itself has not
had record of any such case so far aa I
know, and I mentioned It only In connec
tion with the Information ' supplied by
your own people In Omaha. Our commit
tee finds It very necessary to distinguish
between facta of its own finding snd
those brought to It from other sources. I

ports from a special correspondent I have

No special fight was put tip by the
Knights of Luther (as stated by your cor

council, and that was not the princtpei
issue. The council, as It was, and now is.
Is entirely satisfactory to the Knights of
Luther, as their Interests are well cared
for. Th principal Issue In Lexington
was. Should the. town have saloons or
no saloons? - And as the Knights of Lu
ther stand for clean, temperate govern
ment of national, state and. city affairs, -
they are proud of the fact that Lexing
ton went dry, and now we want to see
the mayor enforce the law, and! the
Knights of Luther will always aid him in
doing so. I trust you will find space la

Patented Oil Processes.

Editor of The Be: The people of Ne
braska dnd the nation ar now very
much Interested In a so-called discovery

partment In the Christian Science Sen
tinel appears th following:
Two discoveries, both of seat Import-
nc to American induatrlee. are an
nounced by Secretary LAna of tha In

chemical engineer of the bureau of mines.

In; a patented process of obtaining thro

Fi'n sraouni or , petroleum which the
Independents now obtain. , .
Secretary Lane Is tryinsr to make It
appear that tha Standard Oil company
now haa an enormous . advantage In the
making of gasoline and that th Rlttman
discovery will give the independents aa
equal advantage. Nothing could be
farther from the fact. Last fall I re

finery saying that they understood that
the Standard people had a process by
which about all petroleum could be mad

application which I mad In 1H for

references of possible infringements tie

that was frtcial. Will Secretary Lena
