A Hifher lattice for Frank.
Tbe supreme court of the United States, with
two justices dissenting, holds that the trlsl of
Leo M. Frank does not show sufficient Irregu
larities to require annulment 'of his conviction.
But the court of public opinion has unques
tionably reached a different conclusion. The
court of public opinion Joins with the two dis
senting justices In the view that, guilty or not
guilty, Frank did not have a fair trial, with
presumption of Innocence which the common law
and the guaranties of our American constitu
tion promise every msn accused of crime. In a
word, the people of the country as a whole are
far from being convinced "beyond a reasonable
doubt," and in that state of mind they will re
gard the execution of Frank as nothing short of
murder under form of law.
It is taken for granted that all possible legal
proceedings to secure a new trial have now been
exhausted If so, the only remaining recourse
Is the pardoning power of tbe -state of
Georgia. What the disposition of the governor
may be, we do not know, but he ought not to be
left In ignorance of the feeling generally prevail
ing and should know that commutation of
Frank's sentence would meet with almost uni
versal approval. The innate sense of fair play
in the American people must assert Itself In ap
peals to Georgia's governor for a higher Justice.
The Editors Are in Town,
Omaha Is again honored In having the pleas
ure of entertaining the Nebraska Press associa
tion. This organization Is a body of representa
tive business men, whose life effort has been to
make Nebraska, the greatest agricultural empire
In the world, greater In all essential respects.
How far Its influence has affected the growth
and development of the state, the formation Of
its Institutions and the shaping of its destiny ao
man can compute. That It haa had an Influence,
mightier and more direct than any other single
agency, none will deny.
The country editor is awake to his respons
ibilities and his privileges, and Is today better
Uian aver qualified to direct the power he
wield. His newspaper Is on a business basis
these days, and no commercial or Industrial en
terprise la conducted with closer regard to the
details of management. Ideals have not been
abandoned, but the happy-go-lucky methods
have vanished before the operation of the
natural evolution of the Industry, and'the news
paper publisher has become a man of affairs in
the commonwealth.
Nebraska has a fine let of newspapers, fairly
representative of. the intellectual, moral and
material life of the state, and worthy of the
sapport they have won. Their editors are tlio
advance guard of 'progressive civilization, and
provide the people a living guaranty against
public or private corruption or oppression.
That they. have the confidence of the public Is
the best proof of their fidelity and their great
est reward. .
The Improving Business Outlook.
. - The Improving business outlook la more pro?
nounced aa spring advances, although much of
the Impulse is seasonal. Building operations
are proceeding, retarded In spots only by the
usual labor disputes. Outdoor employment Is
fairly abundant, and bread lines In the largo
cities have disappeared. 'This in itself consti
tutes an enlivening of the currents of trade, yet
it Is but one of the many propelling forces.
Summarizing the trade reports, manufactur
ers of staple articles are tnereaslng their out
put, to meet the certain demand which will come
from diminished retail stocks and the limited
purchases of last fall and winter; orders for
railroad supplies are steadily Increasing and
stimulating the various industries devoted to
that trade.
Restored confidence Is also reflected In the
renewed acUvitles of Wall street. Behind the
uplift which the stock market gauges lies an
abundance of available money at normal rates.
Bank reserves at the moment are around 1150,
000,000, nearly twice the reserves In sight at
the rebound .from the panio of 1907. Besides
this sustaining resource the national trad bal
ance for March totaled 4145,000,000. Credit
men from various sections of the country assem
bled In Philadelphia last, week gave expression
to -the confident tone of business and that con
ditions were, nearer normal than at any time
since the war began.
The mighty push behind the general better
ment In actual oondltlcns and business tone
cornea from favorable crop prospects. Tho
latest government report Indicates a winter
wheat harvest of 619.000.000 bushels, a decrease
compared with last year, but larger than that
of 19J3. This crop alone Is sufficient for home
needs, leaving the spring wheat harvest to sup
ply tbe wants of less fortunate people.
All things considered, the outlook Is decid
edly encouraging, and nowhere more so than In
the agricultural sections of the country.
Nebraska's Semi-Centennial. . ,
It transpires that the legislature exhausted
the entire time of Its session and adjourned
without making any provision whatever for an
official celebration of Nebraska's fiftieth anni
versary of statehood, which occurs March J,
1917. The Lincoln Journal calls attention to this
omission, with tbe further suggestion In which
we concur that the event is too big and his
toric to be Ignored by the people of Nebraska,
regardless of legislative Inattention and
neglect, and calls for a popular commemoration
befitting its character and significance.
The Bee was. the first, we believe, to voice
the demsnd for a suitable aeml-centennlal eel w
bratlon, and to urge that it be state-wide and
broad enough for the participation In It of every
resident who appreciates the wonder-working
achievements of these fifty years. In the absence
of official Initiative, nothing remains now but
tbe formation of an unofficial committee or as
sociation of public spirited citizens to take the
matter In hand and carry through a celebration
program on a big, broad scale, creditable alike
to the occasion and to the great stats of Ne
braska. . '
Any person, firm or company may go lnv the
banking business in Illinois without official per
mission or inquiry as to whether the capital Is
cash or pure nerve. As a consequence the state
has the dubious record of twelve private bank
failures during the last fiscal year, against fif
teen in all the other forty-seven states. The
Sucker state Is living up to Its nickname.
Aimed at Omaha
Kearney Hub: Will someone explain why tha
city government of Omaha is always tha cWaf bone
of contention In a selnn of tha legislature, and why
the state should have anything more to say about
munlripel government In Omaha or lAnroln than in
Hrldgeport or Papllllon? A larse part of every ees
sion ia devoted to matters pertaining to the Omaha
city government that should be entirely within the
Jurtxrtlc tlon of tha people ef that city and concerning
which no outsider should have a thing to say.
O'Neill Frontier: High school youngsters at Omaha
neglected to consider the Board of Education In plan
ning to put on a big dance at the grand new hotel,
with cabaret and other modern frills of tha dancing
floor. The Board of Education does right to forbid
the dance as a high school function. The school kids
have the right to dance all they want at private or
public affairs, but using a public Institution to far
ther a function for social pastime to which many ob
ject Is going R too strong.
Ilartington Herald: With 8toux City Roing dry
and Billy Sunday coming to Omaha, the regeneration
of our great centers appears to be assured.
Nebraska City Press i A lot of Nebraska editors
will be entertained at Omaha nsxt Week, and one of
tha features of the three days' session Is a dinner nt
tha Fontenalle, given by tha Omaha Commercial cliey.
Hdltors' wives have raen coaching their husbands In
etiquette and social usages for several weeks, admon
ishing them how to use tha finger bowls and, for
heaven's wake, not ta tuck their napkins around their
ears as If they were In a barber shop. Putting a
country editor In a hlfalutin hotel la like turning n
bull loose In the parlor (or Is It "living room" now?)
Fremont Tribune: It Is to the credit of Governor
Morehead that he vetoed the bill giving Omaha the
privilege of owning and operating an electric lignt
plant. That ahowed the governor was ready to star I
by the men who stood by him, even to the extent of
eliminating himself from future political possibilities.
His willingness to pay his debts under such circam
stancas shows Mm to be sn honest man.
riattsmouth Journal: The Jacksoaian club of
Omaha was In very poor business when it condemned
Governor Morehead for vetoing the Omaha light bill.
Oovestier Morehaed understands his own business
about aa well as the Jacksontan club understand
theirs. If wa were governor we would have vetood
the annexation bill. But Omaha Is never satisfied
unless It gets tha whole hog.
Kearney Democrat: For two years Senator Hitch
cock haa been fighting President Wilson and his ad
ministration to the death. Lest weak Brian's
friends announced that "e would enter the senatorial
race next year as a candidate against Hltchoock, and
since then Hitchcock has come out stronger than a
fox In favor of Wilson and his administration. Bryan
will force tbe liquor question te an issue and Hitch
cock will be backed by the "booze" element.
Kearney Hub: The most shameful spectacle seen
In a Nebraska legislature In many days was that, af
the county officeholders' lobby the latter part ef the
week crowding the rail in the Interest of their bill to
extend their terms of office two years, or rather to
not hold an election for county officera In 1916, which
would have given them a two years extension of
office. At one time It looked SS though the measure
would paaa, but happily there waa a healthy reaction
against It at the last moment.
Ord Journal: To pay for having voted tor annex
ation the members of the legislature were Invited to
Omaha by special train and While there they were en
tertalned at a new and expensive hotel, i Of course
all members were Invited but not all attended. The
Commercial Club financed the excursion party.
Plattsmouth Journal (dem.): Mr. Qulnby. who was
elected to tha state senate from Omaha by the demo
cratic votea, we understand, claimed after he got to
Lincoln, that he waa Independent of party affiliation
and would act accordingly. If Mr. Qulnby had made
this declaration before election he wot.M undoubtedly
have been left at home. It a man Is eleoted to any
position on the democrat! ticket he sneuld consider
himself a democrat. The democrats are always har
boring fellows who are not reliable democrats, and
who sell them out at every opportunity.' That la one
drawback te the success of the party.
Took Mother's Advice.
Some tlm ago a party named Brown married a
pretty little thing, and after the usual honeymoon the
young couple settled down to housekeeping. LU'.le
wlfey wasn't muop of a cook, but she managed fairly
well in the matter of boiling eggs and frying potatoes,
and hubby didn't grumble.
"Harry, dear." happily remarked wlfey when
hubby returned from the office one evening. "I havo
been baking a pie f of you. I -want you to come and
see It" I
"Why. so you have," responded Harry, hsstening
to the kitchen and taking a critical look at the pas
try. I'But what tn the deuce Is the matter with It?

"Of course. It doesn't, silly.", smilingly returned
the young wife. "Tour mother told me how to make

Early to Rise.
The excitement of the biggest wheat crop he had
ever grown led a farmer near Wlnflald. Kan., to rouse
his men at 1 o'clock In tho morning on the first day
of the harvest.
On Osark "hill billy," who had sought work In the
western wheat fields, tumbled out of bed at tha
farmer'a call and was eagerly eating breakfast when
his fallow workmen appeared. After he had stowed
away a quantity of hot cakes, four fried, eggs and
two cups of coffee, he arose from the table and
grabbed his suitcase. The fanner taught tha gleam
of the wanderlust in his eye.
"Look here!" he eeid, la alarm, "where are you

OMAHA. April l.-To the Kditor of The
Ree: Jut now the various belligerent
factions In Mexico seem to be very much
exercised ever the announcement of
Huerta's Probable return to his nstiva
land and many suggestions are being
made by the American press aa to what
should be done with him in the matter.
It will be remembered by nearly every
citizen of the t'nlted State that our pres
ident took It Into hi head to make Mr.
Huert, wha wa then provisional presi
dent of Mexico, salute the ftars and
Stripes. After spending several million
ef dollars and spilling considerable good
American blood In the effort, it waa dis
covered that Mr. Huerta was not Present
to render the act of courtesy to our flag,
hence the salute was never made.
Some newspaper wag has intimated
that Mr. Huerta may be returning to
Mexico tor the purpose of obeying Mr.
Wilson's request to salute the flag.
It would seem to me a better plan
would be for the United fttates govern
ment to Intercept Mr. Huerta shd take
him to Washington city, where tha salute
could be made In due style, accompanied
by rousing speech by Messrs. Wilson,
Bryan and a few other theorist whose
Ideas, according to Colonel Wetterson.
may b all right In heaven, but unsuitable
for earth. J. P. PETERSON.

NEW TOUK, April l.-To the Editor of
The Dee: The fatalities end loss of
prnptrty through tho use of explosives
for cleaning purposes In the home and
factory of this country I appalling.
It Is a surprise even to people of educa
tionwhen they hear that it Is unneces
sary for heat or flanto to come In con
tact with such substances ss benzine,
haptha and gaaoilne to causa fire. Their
vapor will ignite and explode, even at a
considerable distance from the vessel hi
which they are contained.
It Is a common thing for householder
to use these dangerous fluids and subject
other people In the same building to the
danger of fire. To take precaution
against this, the Innocent ere entirely
helpless, as they cannot watch or direct
what should be done for the safety of.
themselves, so far as the use of these
fluids by others Is concerned.
To csuse a fire from gunpowder or
dynamite. It is necessary for heat or
flame to come In direct contact with
them not so, however, with benzine,
naphtha or gasoline, as the vapor do
not tay confined and reach the flame.
In some cities there are regulations
governing tha use of these fluids for
cloanlng purposes the quantity that can
be bought at one tlm and In one con
tainer Is limited and the label muat bear
the caution "Dangerous," "Inflammable,"
etc.. and a warning given that It must
not be used near fire or flame.
Th agltution throughout this country
of the "Safety First" movement shoutd
make the newspaper take up thla sub
ject and make a study of It for the pur
pose of having the vsrious cities pas
ordlnnflcas regulating the sal of bn
aine, naphtha and gsnilne, and should
undertake themselve, to make the people
realize their danger. '.'..

Ia Re Prohtbltlaa.
Editor of The Bee. There Is one point that
the apologist for prohibition seam to
Ignore snd that Is that it Is a smaU part
of a great question. ;
. To th historical student the queatlon of
prohibition must appear as a reactionary
movement. It being a continuance of the
attempt made In the eighteenth and sev
enteenth centuries In Europe and the
United State to . make all people think
allk on religious questions. That at
tempt was not a success and Francs,
wher It was triad out, la a freethlnktng
country today.
Some of the prohibition laws In Kansas
and elsewhere are Just as drastio as the
laws which penalised th religlou liberty
of citizens 180 years sgo. By way of Illus
tration let me quota from a letter writ
ten by that clever literary celebrity. Lady
W. Montague, from France March , 1744.
(Page 210-211. McClurg A Co.'. 1890 edi
tion): Th greatest ran of th town of Nlame
ar Protestants, which are still severely
punished according to the edict of Louts
XIV whenever they are detected in any
publlo worship. A few daye before wo
cam they. had assembled: their minister
and about a dozen of his congregation
were seized and Imprisoned.
An appeal was mad to the Due do
Richelieu on their behalf, and to again
quote this eighteenth century writer, he
told her h was no bigot:
He pitted them as much aa I did, but
hla orders from court were to send them
to the galleys,
which' was a living death. In this partic
ular case, probably due to the Influence
of the parties who Interceded for them
the liberty of these Protestants wss ob
tained. In France at that period th property
of prisons convicted of religious differ
ence with the majority was confiscated.
The Kngllsh treatment of Catholic In
Ireland was quit as bad a th French
treatment of Protestants. Byron, In Don
Juan, calls tha attention of bigots tha
wor'J over to th fact that
Christiana burned each other quite per
suaded That th aoostlee would have dona aa
they did.
In Ireland a Catholic minister wa lia
ble to be executed for holding a reli
gious meeting (giving a mass and com
munion.! Papists could not vote or serve
r.n Juries or hold real estate. (Breweries

Do w want to - return to all the
Iniquities? And prohibition is a logclal
step that way. If we want to legislate
about personal rights where ar wo going

of a glass of wine and beer (both whote
som beveragsa. If used In moderation),
then w can have meat, tea and roffe
and say othar article of feed or drink
likewise placed under interdict. Then it's
only a step to enforce attendance at the
particular church which th majority
shall decree to be th "state church."
Drea and pleasure can likewise be sub

are In a majority, and lama wtll multiply

In the case of food it would be
foolish to attempt tfj substitute
