Fighting from the Coal Minn.
David Lloyd George has Just confirmed an
other dream of the socialists, by his statements
that the war Is being carried on In the coal
mines. Every activity of the army itets back to
coal, says the munition minister, talking to a
congress of miners, called for the purpose of
stimulating, If possible, activity In the collieries.
As long as six years at-o, the miners of Great
Jirltaln, in their union meetings, proposed that
sll miners In the world join in refusing to fur
nish cosl for warshtps, In event of one nation
declaring war on another. They had foreseen
what Lloyd George now elaborates upon, that
without coal a war would be Impossible. The
socialists, with their propaganda of peace, seized
upon the suggestion of the British coal xilners,
and It was urged that the plan of action be
adopted in all countries. When the test came,
however, it found the weakness in the "brother
hood of man," and the workers, who bad held
In their hands the fate of the armies, found
themselves in the mlnee digging coal, that the
machinery of war might be run at full blast.

Closing Another Chapter.
The execution of Charles Becker, former po
lice lieutenant of New York City, will terminate
another chapter in the yet unfinished fight to
give that city responsible government The story
of the crime for which Becker was convicted
reads more like the fanciful creation of a
cheap novelist than the sober relation of facts,
but its astonishing details were fully estab
lished In court No episode In the annals of
the "wild and woolly west" approaches the mur
der of Herman Rosenthal, which was but one of
a series of offenses that culminated In this
The fight that was made In behalf of
Pecker was one of remarkable pertinacity.
Twloe be faced a jury, and each time was con
victed, and after the second trial be and his
counsel exhausted every known means of appeal.
Judges sitting in review on the case confirmed
the verdict of the Jury, and the governor of the
state could find no point to Justify interposition
of bis clemency against the decisions of the
courts. That such a record has boen made is
in favor of the justice of the verdicts of guilty,
twice pronounced by trial juries.
In this case is found something of proof that
ultimately the law will triumph against the of
fender, no matter how powerful be may be, nor
how well entrenched behind defenses of his own
making. Booner or later some strong man will
rise up, and, in the name of the people, lead a
fight for order and good government and pre
vail. New York City is not yet free from the
forces of disorder, but the reign of the "gun
man" has received a severe check In the fate of
Becker and bis associates.
An Overlooked Claimant.
The commission that selected Nebraska's
most distinguished citizen plainly made an aw
ful mistake. Here's a Fremont man who has
worked out the only true explanation of our
wet summer, which he unselfishly gives to the
public without price or hope of reward. To
quote his own language:
I understand that our atmosphere that mores
round the circle with the earth Is only a mile and a
half or two miles thick. The atmosphere that lies
more than two miles un from ...,k'.
vdoes not move with the movement of the earth. Now
......uuua guns in semoe in the European
war disturb the atmoaphere for a distance of twenty
or thirty miles upward from the earth. I calculate
that It may take lomt hours for this disturbance to
bring a condition that oooaalona precipitation, and by
the time the latter begins the earth has turned
around on Its axis Just enough aa to bring ua under
the point of original disturbance.
Now, we submit that a man possessing- Buch
high sclentlfie attainments, and endowed with
the brain that enables hlm to make this won
derful discovery first, has claims far superior
to any rnere "bugologlst." We move that our
mott-distlugulshed-citUen electoral college be
Governorship Term and Salary.
The New York constitutional convention is
considering a proposal to lengthen the term of
the governor to four years, and to fix his salary
at 120,000. At present the governor of New
York Is elected for a two-year term, and his
salary is 110.000, being less than that of the
governor of Illinois, who is the highest paid
rtate executive, and receives a salary of 111,000
a year. Inquiry discloses that only four other
states besides New York, namely. Colorado. New

course, on the basis of the Colorado salary. New
York could properly go un much higher than the
proposed 120.000. It Is the Irony of politics that

raise the gubernatorial salary here up to the

that the tendency It toward longer periods of
service. Tne movement for a four-vear aov.
ernorshlp rests on the same ground as does the
movement for a six-year nresidencv. still, we
are not likely to have uniformity among the
states at least for many years to comebut
we may be certain that whatever changes are
made will be toward the feur-year term, which
is already the practice of twenty-four states, or
just half of the total number.
A Lame Excuse.
Secretary Had field points out that no law of
the United States prescribes what tort of vessel
may be built and operated. Any design or form
of vessel that will float Is permitted. Admit
ting this, by what stretch of reason la it permis
sible for the United States through Its steamboat
Inspection officers to give a certificate of safety
to a ship that la known to be unsafe? The gov
ernment may not be able to prevent the con
struction of poorly designed and unseaworthy
ships, but It ought to be able to prevent Its offi

A member of the British cabinet reports that
the Allies now occupy 4S0.000 square miles of

Flying Machines and War

..r . pernape. we shall think of aeroplanes In
connection with the wisdom of keeolna- out of war
"The aeroplane will prevent war by making It too
expensive, too slow, too difficult, too long-drawn-out
in oner, by making the cost prohibitive."
The man who makes these atatements about the
aeroplane U Orvllle Wright, one of the brothera who
"Did you ever atop to think." Inquires Wright,
, i i .....
....- a very oeiinite reason why the present
war In Burope haa dragged along for a year with
neither side gaining murh advantaae ovar the other?
The reason, as I figure It out. Is aeroplanea. In con
sequence of the scouting work done by the flying
macnines, each side knows exactly what the opposing
rorcee are doing.
"There la little chance for any one army to take
another by surprise. Napoleon won Ms wars by
massing ma troops at unexpected places. The aero
plane has made that Impossible. It haa equalised In
formation. Each aide has auch complete knowledge
of the other's movements that both sides are obliged
to crawl Into trenches and fight by means of slow,
tedious routine rather than by quick, spectacular
"My Impression Is that before the present war
started the army experts ex.pec.ted It to be a matter
of a few weeks or, at most, a few months. Today It
looks aa though It might run Into years before one
side can dictate terms. Now, a nation that may be
willing to undertake a war lasting a few months may
well hesitate about engaging In one that will occupy
years. The dally eost of a greet war Is. of course,
stupendous. When this eost runs on for years, the
total la likely to be so great that the aide which wins
nevertheless lose. War will become prohibitively ex
pensive, And the scouting work In flying machines
will be the predominating factor, aa It seems to me.
In bringing this about. I like to think so, anyhow."
"What, In yoor opinion, haa the present war dem
onstrated regarding the relative advantages of aero
planea and Zeppelin airships?" ' the Inventor wus
"The aeroplane seems to have been of the more
practical use," replied Wright. "In the first place.
dirigible ali-ehlne of the Zeppelin type are ao expensive
to build, costing somewhere around half a million
dollars each, that It la distinctly disadvantageous to
the nation operating them to have one destroyed. The
financial risk every time your Zeppelin Is shot at la
too great But what Is more Important is the fact
that the Zeppelin la so large that It furnishes an ex
cellent target unless It sails considerably higher than
la comparatively safe for an aeroplane. And when the
Zeppelin la at a safe height It Is too far above the
ground for your acout to make accurate observations.
Similarly, when the Zeppelin Is used for dropping
bombs, It must be too high for the bomb thrower to
show much accuracy-"
"Haa the war use of the aeroplane been up to the
expectations you and your brother formed at the time
of Its Invention T"
"Tea, beyond our expectations. About the first
thing we thought of after we found that we' could fly
waa the possibilities for scouting purposes, but we ha I
little Idea that the year 115 would see so many aero
planes In army use.
"Aside from the use of the machine tor war pur
poses the war will give a great boost to aviation
generally. It haa led more men to learn to fly. and
with a higher degree of skill than ever before. It haa
awakened people to aviation possibilities."
"Apart from war, what will be the future of the
"Just like the automobile, It will become more and
more fool-proof, easier to handle, and safer. There Is
no reason why It should not take the place of special
tralna where there la urgent need of great speed.
Maybe you never paused to think that already the
aeroplane Is safer than the automobile If you are
going at a high rate of speed? If you want to ride
sixty miles an hoar, as men occasionally do, you arc
about ten times safer doing It In an aeroplane, grant
ing, of course, that the man at the wheel haa learned
"The aeroplane has never really come Into Its own
as a sporting proposition. Of late years the tendency
haa been to develop a high rate of speed rather than
to build machines that may be operated successfully
at comparatively low apeed. The low-speed machine
la necessary before the aeroplane can fill the place it
should In the world of sport. Tou see, a machine
adapted to make from aeventy to one hundred miles
an hour cannot run at all except at a pretty rapid clip,
and this means difficulty in getting down. One must
have a food, smooth piece of ground to land on and
plenty of It. When we get an aeroplane that will fly
along at twenty miles aa hour, ore can land almoat any
placeon a roof. If necessary and then people will
begin to take an Interest In owning an aeroplane for
the enjoyment of flying. - Aa It la now, the man who
buya a flying machine for snort, usually takes a trip
or two to show his friends that he can do t. and then
la reconciled to let the machine remain a good deal of
the time In the ahed.
"The problem of finding a landing place, in case
one's motor ceaaea to work, la one of many Interesting
anglea. If you are Just a mile up In the air at the
moment of beginning an enforced descent, you have
your choice of nearly 209 square mllea of territory In
which to alight. You can circle about and strike a
point Immediately below you, or, If you prefer. It Is
possible to soar down at an angle that will bring you
to a point eight mllea from there.
"Now, when you have BOO aquare mllea to pick
from, It looks aa If you ought to be able to find a
smooth place, doesn't It? But the trouble Is you
probably are not familiar with the territory, and it
la Impossible to tell from where you are about the
conformation of the ground. The aviator soon learns
to distinguish the shades of green that Indicate the
varioue growing crops, but when only a few hunched
feet In the air he cannot tell whether the ground is
hilly or level. When he gets down to a point where
he can see just what he la coming to, It la then too
lata to have much choice la the matter."
"Shall you fly In the future V
"I want to fly now and then or the sport of It .ia
long aa I live. But I do not oare to do It aa a business.
I would like to be clear out of any actual business
"As it Is now, I sm a manufacturer of aeroplanes.

Little Willie's Excuse
Here te a story that waa told at a recent dinner
by XI Us Sybil Baker, who waa chosen queen of Rose
Festival at Portland, when reference waa made to
the wonderful excueea Invented by the rising gen
eration. One morning the teacher of a publle school In a
western village was glancing over her puptla when
her eye suddenly fastened on little Willie Brown.
"Willie," eald aha in a stem voloe. "didn't I tell
you not to eome to schaol without having had your

of the youngster.
"Welt, then." demanded the teacher, a little more
severely, "why did you to It?"
"Because I couldn't comb It, Mlse Mary," waa
the startling rejoinder of Willie. "We lent our comb
te the Smiths last otiht and they didn't bring It back.'

March 29, 1J15, I wrote you that the
article In your Letter Box signed "Cured

me by refusing to OMolMh any replies to
July T. 19U. I wrote "The Palmist and

of the public. I stand ready to explain
and defend my position in both letters,
but I shall not resort to ridicule and I
shall atirk to both truth and reason.
Should there be any replies, I hope the
Letter Box will see they are decent, re
apectful, truthful and educational.
Regarding palmistry: I proved there
wa no truth In the claimed readings of
"The Dine of Life," by examining ths
hands of the dead. I will go farther and
say no one has a right to claim an fine

has anyone to aay this line 1s "The Line

Iho other line "The Line of Heart?" That
thla part la "The Mount of Venus," that
part "The Mount of Jupiter," another
"The Mount of the Sun?" No one has the
slightest right to aay so, and X defy any
one to prove It. The lines in the palms
are in reality wrinkles caused by the
folding of the akin. Would my readers
not think It ridiculous If I claimed to
read the curves In the ear. the lines In
the forehead, those about the eyes nnd on
the big toes? And yet. It would lie Just
as reasonable. Just as probable, just aa
truthful aa the claims of the palmists.
Am I not right?
Now, aa to ths last two communica

she Is so determined to throw down the
gauntlet that I feel I have a right to
