Ex-Post Facto Tunctilio.
The British government has apologised very
handsomely to Chile for having Invaded the
waters of that country for toe purpose of sink
ing the German cruiser Dresden, la giving this
fact tha consideration It demands, the admiring
world win also take due note of the additional
fart that tha Dresden was first sunk; the apol
ogy came after, and, ao far as the German ship
is concerned, la la no sense retroactive. The
rase has several aspects that are of more than
passing Interest. It is hardly likely, that the
commander of tha British squadron which Pur
sued and overtook the Dresden Is so poor a nav
igator that he did not knew tba prey ho sought
was In the jurisdiction of Chile, and, had he
troubled to make brief Inquiry, ha might have
learned what la now known, that tha .Chilean
government was in charge of the Dresden. t
' Chile will, of course, accept the apology, hav
ing no desire to engage In hostilities, but the
iacideat serves to emphaslx the ear with which
the belligerents regard the rights of .neutrals.
nd tba paJns they take to observe with due
punctilio tha obligation assumed under treaties.
"Tba Dresden affair present tha most flagrant
breach of neutrality on part of any of the navies
since the war began, and It will arlsa to haunt
tha British admiralty Jong after the war 1 over.

Heiioa W. Aldrioh.
Had Mr. Aldrkh' death occurred a few
years ago, all would hv agreed that the most
powerful personage In our public life, excepting j
only the president, had. been calUd. In hi
death today w note the los merely of a con
spicuous cltliea, who had succeeded but par
tially In withdrawing to the retirement of
private life. During Mr. Aldrlch's thirty years
In the United States senate he made a mark
which will not be effaced. While his greatest
publicity and notoriety came from being cred
ited with the Joint sponsorship of the Payne
Aldrlch tariff, the work in which he was most
Interested wa that which led tip to tha reor
ganisation of our currency system, through the
Vreeland-Aldrlch till, and tha measure which.
with comparatively little modification, became
later our present federal reeerve bank act. He
was a. nan of fore and toroslght. with a peculiar
faculty tir legislative leadership along line that
prevailed during the. period of hla supremacy.
but which no longer obtain to the same degree.
It will be aated. too, that although on of the
moat bitterly assailed of our publlo men, his col
leagues. a In the case of Mark Uanna. will be
found paying tribute to his fine personal traits
and his high Intellectual ability.
Parking the Automobiles.
The regulation promulgated by Police Com
missioner Kegel ftrr the parking of automobiles
on downtown streets are not unreasonable, and
are Intended to establish a better practice in the
use of the city streets. Owners of automobile
are only indtroctly responsible for the ituatloa
that ha developed out of the extended use of
the machines. The owners merely followed a cus
tom that datea back to the beginning of things.
that of anchoring the vehicle next to the curb,
and which wa permitted to grow, until with the
increasing number of automobiles oa the street
the old plan Is no longer practical, but is cum
bersome and obstructive. Parking ears in the
middle of the street has been well tested In
other cities, and has been successful. Omaha
motor owners aououeas will cbeeriuuy co
operate with the authorities in this, as they
have in other ways, te the end that the streets
t kept free aa possible for the use of antomo
biles as well a other vehicle. The change.
too, will mark another step on the way Omaha
Is lowly progressing toward "big city" manner.
For tna second time this year a . federal
court ha Informed manufacturer of patented
articles that their right to tlx the selling price
dor not extend beyond their own counter.
When they attempt, to fix the price the retailer
must charge consumers th belter of patent
right ceases and they are amenable to the law
forbidding restraint of trade. The Sherman
law, be It known, is as dangerous to trifle with
as a busssaw.
Th omission of the word "did" from aa In
dlctment prompted a St. Louis court to quash
proceedings against a man charged with fraud
ulently selling a $100 deed of trust. The court
followed the precedent of th stat supreme

Because nothing short of a eenetltu

Because under the American scheme of

liquor traffic. The liquor problem is a
federal question, for the federal govern

conclusive control of the traffic and
therefore national prohibition by federal

' 'Sure. Boiling point pretty
much the same thing. That's
the only real' test for gasoline. ' ' ,

You're safe then. The Ignition

right, and what's more, it's right
