Clemency for Frank.
Eicepting Georgia, where opinion It ad
mtttedly divided, lha action of Governor 81aton, j
saving Leo M. Frank from ih death penalty
and making his sentence life Imprisonment, un
questionably command popular approval
throughout the country, which hat been
nt'rred by few criminal caaea a It baa by thl.
Regardlest of the facts, though the Innocence
of Frank eeema thoroughly establlthed. the uni
versal verdict hag been that his conviction wu
brought about by the preaaure of prejudice and
excitement and that he did not have the fair
trial to which he wat entitled. All that wm
asked for him In all the legal proceedings con
nected with hit appeals to higher courts waa to
have another trltl ordered, and the petition for
clemency was only a last retort.
If Frank It an Innocent victim of circum
stantial evidence and class hatred, then, of
courte, life Imprisonment It an awful fate. Com
mutation of eentence, however, glvee time for
the true Inwardnett to develop, and it goes with
out laying that proof that the murder wae com
mitted by another would, whenever produced,
open the doors and tet Frank free.
Those of our readers who Joined with Tha
Bee In petitioning Governor Slaton in Frank't
behalf mutt thare the satisfaction that, to this
extent, the effort has not been unavailing.

The Nebraska Two-Cent Eate Caie.
In Its decision on the 2-cent passenger rate
case, the supreme court of Nebraska lays down
the rule that the power of the State Railway
commission doet not extend to nullifying maxi
mum rates specifically fixed by the legislature.
In thlt case the legislature had substituted 2
cents aa the maximum for the 3-cent rate estab
lished and maintained by law for years and tha
court holds that It is without the scope ot the
commission to raise this rate. The court also

I and some other thoushtleaa agitators would argue the

make the hard task of the president etlll harder and
are doing much the aame kind of work that the rebel
sympathisers did during the civil war to embarrass
Preeldent Uncoln. It la comforting to know that
while we etrenuoualy disagree about domestl adminis
tration and domeatlc policies, loyal Americans hasten
to offer themselves upon the altar of their country
and aacriflce their personal ambitions, personal, wlahas,
personal theories, their property and even their lives
for the good ot their beloved country In so doing they
obey the doctrine of the lowly Neinrine who said,
"It Is more bleseed to give than to receive."
Norfolk Newa: They arretted a man In Omaha for
doing nothing more than shoot up all the prominent
hotels In town. Gosh, but Omaha Is getting fussy.
Kearney Hub: Tne newspapers are giving the
Omaha Board of Education some well deserved pub
Hetty in connection with Its orders relative to the
teaching of American history. The course of study
provides for It, and the student la required to study
It "unless excused by the principal of the high school."
Commenting on this absurdity a cltlsens of Omaha in
a letter to The Bee says: "My children are not yet
of high school age, but I certainly will have them
take American history and shall deem It a disgrace
If they do not have brains and patriotism enough to
at leant obtain a passing mark. This age Is becoming
shambling, wlshywashy and unpatriotic. What we
need on the school board Is strenuous patriotic men.

ter is well worth looking Into In the public schools
throughout the country generally to ascertain ho
many schools are neglecting the most Important study
in the curriculum.

All these, charges are well founded. The
United States Is unprepared, to ngage In war
on the ttupendout teale now being exhibited in
Europe. We have ten million young men who
would make splendid soldiers, and who would
die like heroes In the trenches, and elsewhere,
but we haven't the ten million rlflet to put Into
their. hands. .. Wherefore we should go to mak
ing rlfl.ee Immediately.
Why not determine with which nation we
are to go to war, and then make our plant ac
cordingly. A century of peace ' with Great
Britain may well be followed by another. The
traditional friendship with the other great pow
ers it not likely to he broken aoon. We Have
no really good reaton to look for war anywhere,
but if we are to get Into the war game, left do
I; right. We should pick our foe, or victim,

official Is entirely too discerning to hold office long

taught life saving to a vry great extent
both here and In Chicago, and I am posi

could have been averted had the life
guard been an expert, as he should be.
Any person familiar with the swimming
game knows that It Is a very easy mat
ter to break any hold that a drowning
person may secure on a swimmer. I have
had experience In the Missouri river with
drowning people, and I know how a

difficult matter for an experienced man
to rescue the most excited strong people
The city commissioners should not hire
a man tor thla life guard work unless
he can pass an examination which shows
him to be competent. Such an examina
tion Is required In all large cities. This
test should lncludethat applicant be re
quired to show breaks for at least three
holds in the water, five holds on land,

struggling and unconscious, demonstrate
methods of resuscitation, and he should

The Travelers' Protective association, which
haa Just closed a successful annual convention
In Omaha. Is one of the smaller organizations in
the assessment insurance field. It la neces
sarily to because Itt membership Is limited to a
tingle occupation regarded at harardous, yet it
has reached a membership of 61,000 in a quar
ter of a century. Itt growth and widening benef
icence It typical of the American spirit which
finds expression In safeguarding self and de
pendents from the pinch of accidents as well as
the uncertainties of life.
No nation In the world comes within balling
distance of the United States In the forehanded-
noss of Itt people In this regard. Life and acci
dent Insurance policies in force in this country
on the first of the year totaled. In round num
bers, 140,000,000,000. Of this enormous total
600 aatetsment companies and orders, with a
membership of 9,000,000, had outstanding 110,
000,000,000; reserve life Insurance companies,
1110,664,00,000, and the balance In accident,
health and vorkmen't liability Inturanre.
During the past year the various life Insur
ance organisations, old line and assessment, dis
tributed lr- the United States and Canada $686.
100,000 in claims and benetltt, an Increase of
$40,ir.0,000 over the disbursements of 1913.
The payments were nearly equal to the total
disbursements, exclusive of the PostoffUe de
partment, by the United States government dur
ing the fiscal year of 114 for the civil, war and
iii.vy establishments, Indian service and Interest
m the public debt.
Great Britain, France and Germany barely
equal one-third of the life Insurance la force In
the United States, and these nations with the
rest of the world added carry less than one-bait

Not all of the good negro stories come from the
south. For instance, there Is the one told by John
Boucher, jr., now ot Omaha, though formerly ot these
parts, whe haa been visiting his brother-in-law,
"Heathen", Wood, n Louisville recently. John waa a
newspaper man once, but he is preaching now.
He says there Is an old darky In Omaha who,
strange as It may seem to that latitude, never, was a
slave. The old man does odd Joba of hauling, for
which purpose he uees a gigantic mule of tremendous
strength and equal deliberation and determination.
One day John asked the old man. the mule's name.
"Dat mule am name Co'poratlon," waa the answer.
"What on earth ever made you give it such a
name as that?" John asked.
"Jea' cause dat am de nachal nam' fo' 1m," aald

"Better not know so much aa to know
