Popular Government it Party Government
The decisive defeat of the constitutional
smendmr-nt for so-called non-partisan elections
In California indicates that the people of that
state, widely Kncvn for extreme radicalism, are
r.ot ready to attempt the dubious experiment of
al olihlng party government. The fact Is that.
1-opular government everywhere Is party govern
ment, not only In this country, but In other coun
tries as well, for the only strictly non-partisan
governments in the world are the autocratic gov
ernments In which the people have no voice. So
far as human experience goes, the only way to
make popular government effective Is through
the agency of political parties snd the only open
question Is whether those parties should be per
manent, representing fixed principles and defin
ite policies, or whether a new party alignment
based on the particular emergency should be
treated for every election.
By the popular verdict Just rendered, Cali
fornia people have decided that they want to
stick to the old established political parties which
mean something, and which can be held respon
sible when entrusted with power and that they
do not want to take a chance with irresponsible
"hlt-or-mlss" personal government, which Is of
questionable effectiveness, except possibly within
certain limited fields, such as the Judiciary snd
the administration of purely local units.
How Many Plowingi?
Has the "fillly" Sunday campaign which has
been concluded In Omaha finished this part of
the program, leaving the follow-up work to be
done by the regular church agents, or Is it but
the forerunner of a succession of revivals by
lesser evangelistic lights and imitators of the
great soul saver? This question Is prompted by
a message" for the readers of the Smnday
School Times, published In Philadelphia, sent by
"Rody" through the local correspondent of that
periodical, In which he says:
"One of the great results of Mr. Sunday's work
la preparing the field for other evangnllata. Com
munities and states get a reputation Just aa Omaha
and Nebraska hav had, for tain Immune to evan
gelistic effort. Ohio had aui h a reputation, but sines
Mr. Runday visited Toungstown, Ohio has been a
fertile fli'ld for evens-Hints. Ho It wna with the east
ern part of the country; there waa llttiex'Rll for evan
gelists In the east and little resulting from their ef
fort until Mr. Sunday broke the Ice, and now nearly
all the evangellsta are working In th east. Yea, this
will be the experience, I am aura, In the points we go
to thla year, but If they respond aa we hope and pray
they will, not only thoaa cltli-s but all the surrounding
country will be Influenced, and for years to corns will
be fertile for evangelistic sowing and reaping."
We observe that revival meetings are already
being held In a number of other Nebraska towns,
In which evangelists of smaller note are doing
the recruiting for an association of churches
organised along the same lines as that behind !
the Sunday revival In Omaha. And with the !
xamnla set hern we have nn rinuht thnv will
meet with a corresponding measure of success.
Dut as for Omaha, we take It that the numerous
churches, with their all-the-year-round pastors
are equal to the task they have assumed, and
that Omaha will not stand In need of another
religious revival for at least some little time to
Borah's Political Horoscope
' Interview la Springfield Kepnbllcan
JfHTICR HUGHES, of the supreme court, will be
nominated by the neat republican convention, un
less he issues a prohibition atronger than any
thing he has yet aald and definitely serves notice on
the party that he will reject the nomination even If
the contention formally selects him." This prediction
was made In this city hy Senator William E. Borah
of Idaho, who In the afternoon had spoken In favor
of woman auffrage In the meeting In the Auditorium,
The earnestness with whlch'Senator Borah made hla
prediction was based, ss he explained, upon the strik
ing cryatalliatlon of public sentiment In favor of
Hughea throughout the west Last spring. In Wash
ington, Senator Borah made a similar declaration to
a representative of The Republican; but last evening
he appeared still more convinced of the matter.
flcnator Borah has himself been widely and favor
hty suggested as the republican candidate next year
and It la on record that Colonel George Harvey of
the North American Review, who long airo picked
Wootrow Wilson for the presidency when most people
didn't know who Woodrow Wilson waa, has similarly
ataked his reputation as a prophet by naming Borah
as the republican nominee In 191. But Kenstor Borah
reasserted last evening that he was not a candidate
and that he did not expect to be a candidate or to
bs considered aa one.
In regard to the candidacy of Senator John W.
Weeks, the senator from Idaho, while not abating
hla statement In regard to Hughes, reported that
Weeks had made a notably favorable Impressions in
the west and had won many friends. Kenator Borah
spoke of having had special opportunity to Judge as
he had been In Spokane, Wash., anion other places,
a short time after Senator Weeks had appeared there.
The only other candidate wtio seems to Senator
Borah to show any strength at thla time Is ex-Senator
Burton of Ohio. Senator Borah declared that Burton's
vigorous fight against waste and graft In river and
harbor appropriations had Impressed the people of
the west a being the work of a strong man. Senator
Borah added, however, that there was as yet no ex
tensive organisation In favor of any one candidate,
but that th spontaneous crystal! lation of popular
opinion In favor of Justice Hushes waa the outstand
ing factor In the situation.
Asked for Ms opinion on the question of military
preparedness, Senator Borah declared himself In favor
of a strong navy as the country's first line of de
fense. He would leave the question of the exact slr.e
of the fleet to the technical experts. He waa dis
tinctly less favorable, however, to any proposition for
a large standing army, believing that a training ays
tern similar to that of Switzerland would be best If
It seemed necessary to have any considerable soldiery
In reserve. He believed that In thcae vlewa as to the
army and navy he was generally supported by western
sentiment. Ho felt that It was possible to maintain
a strong and effective navy, that would command
respect upon the seas, with leas menace of militarism
than would be th case If the country were led Into
the maintenance of a targe standing army.
Sex in War Timei.
Discussion of the case of Nurse Cavell, ex
ecuted at Brussells by the German military
authorities after being convicted of assisting
Belgian and British soldiers to .escape from the
rillltary hospital. Is beginning "to take on tho
form of sex division. The futility of this Is so
apparent as almost to disarm debate. In the
rase of Miss Cavell she sought no consideration
tccause of sex. In her own words, quoted by
ru associate who hat . reached England, she
would "nurse the wounded, but would not be
come their Jailer." She thus assumed an atti
tude of hostility to the Germans, natural enough
for a htgh-splrtted English woman, but placing
ter within the purview of the military's control.
Iter admissions on trial showed her offenses
against the military law to be even greater than
her accusers had been able to prove. This
made the case against her so clear that the
penalty could not be avoided.
So far as protection for her because of her
sex is concerned, In what position would the
adoption of such a rule leave tht military?
Would It not quickly result In the secret service
of the governments engaged In the war being
turned over to women, who would be immune
when taken prisoner? Our Instinctive chlvn'ry
revolts at the thought of sending a woman to
face a firing squad, Just as It does at the thought
of woman engaging In any of the activities of
war. But we have many notable Instances of
the part played by women In war time, both on
the battle line and In the more danrcrous work
of spies, and these women realize they are brav
ing death In their undertakings.
Nurse Cavell waa inspired by a high sense
of loyalty and duty to her country, and for
feited her life as the result. She apparently
did not seek Immunity because of sex while
living, and her manner of death ought to be a
source of pride and comfort to her friends.
Community Good Will.
A notable example of speedy, straightforward
business dealing with an Injured community is
furnished by the Santa Fe Railroad company In
settling the claims growing out of the oil tank
explosion at Ardmore, Okl. In less than a month
most of the personal Injury and death claims
have been adjusted and property damage is now
in process of settlement.
The method of adjustment combines slm
rltclty, economy and celerity. A commission of
five disinterested citizens, agreeable to both
sides, determined the damages and the company
laid out the money. Death claims were deter
mined by the annual earning power of the de
ceased multiplied by the years of expectancy. In
like manner personal Injury damages were deter
mined by the nature of the Injury, and the ef
fect on the victim's productive value. Allow
ances were made for medical and Incidental ex
penses. In all the 500 cases adjusted the full
settlement sums went to the claimant! without
deduction or cost
Measured by results the plan proved emi
nently satisfactory. Claimg were awarded and
laid without delay, litigation was averted, and
the rancor engendered by harassing delays
avoided. The company la the gainer not alone
In the economy of the system, but in the larger
field of community good will.
Both the republican and democratic national
committees have been called to convene to make
preliminary arrangements for their president
nominating conventions. Anybody here seen
any signs of the bull mouse convention?

OMAHA, Oct. 81. To the Editor of
The Bee: I think I saw an article In
your paper recently Indicating that ar
rangements had been made with the
atreet railway company so that cars
would always meet or wait for the trains
coming Into the Union or Burlington sta
tions at about 1 a. m., but I find by ex
perience that this Is all a dream as far
as the cars are concerned.
For Instance, I arrived on the 13:55
Union Pacific train Thursday night, and
got up to the street about 12:6S, along
with some thirty or forty other passen
gers, and the only atreet cars which went
north after that time were one for Har
ney street at about 1:06 and one for For
tieth and Cuming street at 1:20. This lat
ter car waited at tho Burlington station
until presumably their last train was In.
The conductor on this car informed
me that It was the last car out for the
night, and that the lost car which went
to Dundee left at 12:55, and that some
times they ran "an extra" when trains
were reported late. As I was going to
Dundee and my train was on time I
missed this car of course and so had
to wolk from Fortieth, while their le

to take me home if th train had only

OMAHA. Oct. l.-The Editor of The
Bee: On th night of September 28, 1915,
two masked desperadoes entered my
store st Twenty-fourth and Poppleton.
armed with pistols, with which they ter
rorised both my wife and myself and
robbed us of all the cash, both on my per
san and In the cash drawer. In the course
of the robbery, one of th men. who wss
a negro, rudely Jostled my wife .In such
a menacing way that she could scarcely
refrain from screaming aloud.
After going through my clothes and
forcing ms to empty th cash drawer
into their hands, tn men road their
escape. Although we Immediately noti
fied th polio by telephone of what had
occurred, we despaired of bringing these
outlaw to Justice, because there Is a
considerable area of vacant property in
th vicinity and th railroad yards seem
to afford safe means of escape.
I feel that I owe It to th police de
partment to inAi public th splendid
work don In capturing and bringing to
Justice these men. Within aa Incredibly
short tun th pollc officers were on
th ground, having com to th store
from all directions, attempting to ap
pehend th outlaws before they could
get away. They went to work on the
case Immediately and within four days
had apprehended snd shown to me for
Identification on of the men engaged tn
th robbery. As I had had ample op
portunity V bear the voices and note
the manners and appearance of the men,
I waa able to identify the first captured
positively. Th man refused to confess
and was held.
Vlthln three weeks after the robbery
th second robber, a negro about 16
years old. an ex-convict, was captured,
and I was able to Identify him so posi
tively that he has made a full confession.
It seems to me that the work done by
the police department In my case has
been wonderfully efficient and prompt.
Whatever I may hear careless people,
who have not such on experience, say
about the police. I know that In my case
It would not be possible fo any police
department to act more promptly or ef
fectively than the Omaha police have
done In this case.
