Anti-Alien Law Void.
The derision of the United States supreme
court declaring unconstitutional the Aritona
rnti-alien law, is one of the most Important re
cently handed down by that court. It Is lm-
t ortnnt In Itself as defining the rights of sllens
;n this country, but even more so In its defini
tion of the rights and powers of the federal
Kovernmont and the states, respectively. While
following along old lines, in this rate the prin
ciples Involved are clearly enunciated and re
defined, with a broad and unequivocal declara
tion that this country, having both by treaty
end practice permitted these aliens to become
rtoidents of the United States, is bound to ac
cord them equal protection of our laws with
thoxo of native birth.
Important as is this feature of tbe case, it
lias no more far-reaching significance than the
I ule laid down concerning tbe powers of the
state and federal government. In the opinion
the court, formulated by Justice Hughes, tbe
undisputed right to admit or refuse to admit
aliens is the sole province of the federal govern
ment and the denial of the right of the alien,
once admitted, to work and earn his living, Is tn
effect the denial ot the right to enter. In ether
words, the states may not do by Indirection
v.hat It is admitted they have no right to do
directly. This rule, csrried to Us legitimate
conclusion, gives the general government,
through Its check upon state legislation, the
ppwer to follow federal enactments to the legiti
mate fruition of their purpose, and provides a
method of preventing numerous controversies
arising with foreign countries over the treat
ment of aliens within our boundaries.
Its bearing upon the anti-Japanese land
holding laws of California, however. Is not so
apparent, as the federal government itself has
thrown restrictions around Japanese and other
Asiatic Immigration and the rights of these peo
ple when admitted.
Wanted A Friend of the Court.
The test .case just instituted to secure a
Judicial ruling on the constitutionality of the
law creating a municipal court for Omaha, and
of tbe appointments made by the governor
uuder color ot that law, suggests that here Is a
proper place for some one to intervene as "a
friend of the court." With due respect to the
young men who are engaged as tbe attorneys ot
record representing the plaintiff and the de
fendant, respectively in the, appeal which is
being perfected to try out the question of con
f titutlonallty, there are other interests Involved
quite separate and apart from the laudable am
bition of the newly appointed Judges to make
their jobs stick. Tbe municipal court law Is In
tended to work a long-needed reform In the ad
ministration of "poor man's Justice," by doing
away with the Justice court fee-mills. The gen
eral public is interested In this side of it, espe
cially in view of previous failures of smllar at
tempts; and tbe basis for the proposed munici
pal court my be sound, even though the gover
ror's assumption of appointive powers may be
legally unwarranted.
The Bee calls upon the author of this law,
Representative Jess V. Palmer, to get Into this
case for the people as "a friend of the court"
and make sure that the trial , of the test suit
brings out all phases of the issues.
Condition of Bniinen.
Tbe dominant not of trad reviews for soma
time has been one of business Improvement, but
the last report of the federal reserve board is
the, most encouraging of any. It notes not only
continued activity in sections dominated by war
orders, but also a visible Improvement In por
tions of the country that have been lethargic,
particularly the south, so hard hit by the low
price ot its great staple, cotton. The Pacific
coast, too, Is said to exhibit a more hopeful out
look. So far as the country is concerned, these
conditions re more important than the feverish
activity of the stock exchanges, reflecting only
the gambling mania, for tbe operations In ordi
nary business channels are built on a more cer
tain and permanent foundation.
The great central west, with assured crops,
has been the spot from which this improved
business condition has radiated. Our western
farm products always command a market and
the consequent buying power of the fanners must

Favon Soon Forgotten.
Uncle Sam is learning, what many ot bis
people have had brought home to them many
times, that favors extended r soon forgotten,
and that promises to repay such aid are subject
tc a liberal discount. It must be apparent that

tbe poverty stricken class who cannot pay. The

thousand of tbe in who pay no attention to the

some of these people who so soon forget bene

th Zeppelins had been prophesied as far back
tha days of King David!

time, half aa a joke, though, for the Zeppe they are
spoken of quite familiarly and offhnnd In eplte of all

tached to one of tha posts ss a forlorn hope of escape
through th window. However, on September 7 when
the preliminary raid took place, I slept the Bleep ot
the Jmt, but Mrs. Bank and our maid heard the (run.
She thought it was some wretched late home-comers
banging doors; ah anathematised them and turned
over and went to sleep again. But first thing in the
morning when the paper came, aha realized that the
bangs'' she had heard were our entl-alrrraft at work.
Tha Zepps had passed pretty close, and a penny bus
ride away, had simply demolished bouses, a whole
family having been wiped out Thousand of people
went to see tha ruins. One house had gone flat Just
Ilka a house built of cards. Every one In It had been
killed. In Orenwlcb park twenty rulnuteK walk from
ue five incendiary bombs had fallen, but fortunately
had done no damage, falling in the grass, hut not
vpry far from tha obaorvntory- They have one In
th guard room of a barrack near as a sort of
trophy. Welt, we all felt very Queer on the Sth and
wondered If It would he our turn net, and the thought
uppermost In my mind was, whether It would bo better
to have an Incendiary bomb or an explosive. It was
difficult to decide, and anyway would not have helped
at alt, for of course the Germans do not wait to con
sult you before dropping them. The chancre of escspo
seem ta he about equal In either cane If it ta in
cendiary the (Irs Is terrific and goes on burning; it
seems very hard to put It out, and we came to the
conclusion thst as wa would not want to delay our

tba bath!
The only satisfactory thing about explosive bombs
Is, that you would In all probability bo deaded in

day In a rather uneasy state of mind, and we bad not
been long there, not really got to sleep, when terrific
banks" began. Mrs. Banka knocked on the wall be-
twen our rooms aaklng me If I "heard that?" I certainly
did, but I could not answer at first, for I waa already
scrambling out of bed, searching for slippers in the
dark, with a horrible choking sensation It was fear.
We put thick coats on over our nightdresses, called
Maggie, and all felt our way down to the cellar. There
Is a gas Jet down there, and an area door. We lighted
the gas and opened the door, and sometimes were in,
and sometimes out In the garden. When we were In
wa expected a bomb through ths roof at any moment,
when we were out, shrapnel from our own guns. '
Talk about the boms of a dilemma! Everyone was
up. and lots of people out In th road gazing skywards.
litke a good many ethers, we thought at first. In fact
until th next day, that th bangs we heard were
bombs exploding, and aa th sound came nearer and
nearer until It seemed right overhead, you can imagine
our suspens waiting to see what would happen, and
though everybody w saw was very calm, we were
all terribly nervous, and I frankly admit I waa so
upset that I shivered from head to foot and felt quite
sick. We sat crouched up en boxes In the cellar for a
long time, close to the main wall of the house, which
an architect friend had told us waa the safest (?)
plaee. Every now and then, even when tbe guns near
us had stopped firing, the sky waa lighted up an
though by lightning; it was th flashes from distant
guns, to distant for us to hear the report. We
knew the raider had passed us on their way to Lon
don, but atlil the Idea of going to bed was Impossible
they might come back. I wanted to go upstairs to
get some things you will b Interested to hear that
at the critical moment whan w made for the cellar,
we did not forgot our "Zeppelin bags!" but I dared
not; suddenly the house had become a sinister place,
a Strang place, only waiting for me to enter it to fall.
Nerves, I know, but very real things, too. At last we
had to go to bed, and shuddered to think what wa
should bear next day.
Of course the authorities suppressed all names of
localities, but I can assure you that In spite of what
German reports say to ths contrary, that absolutely
no damage of any military Importance waa done, and
nior than that, th peojrie hav not blenched. There
Is n talk of "atop the war. w cannot stand this any
longer," no, on the contrary they say go on; a friend
of mln said he would say It with hla last breath if
ha were bombed. But it was grievous to visit tho
places in the heart of London and see the shattered
warehouses, and hear of th deaths. Our only con
solation Is that It might all have been worse, and I
am so glad that none of our old buildings were hurt,
and that t. Paul's "caped. It Is too horrible to think
of it being destroyed, and Imagine if Westminster
Abbey were hit! The German raiding commander, who
was supposed to have been Interviewed by an Ameri
can Journalist, said he had been told to be careful not
to aim at these buildings, nor tha Palace. Well, I
only hop It Is true. We aan only Judge by their be
havior lit Franc and Belgium, It fairly broke my
heart whan I heard of Rhetms. I visited It Just four
summers Sgo. However. London had been consider
ably (hook up this time, but there waa no panic. We
beard atl sorts of stories about the fires and bombs.
People Just coming from th theater the raid began
about 10:90 p. m. hurried to se the fires, which were
quickly put out A bus was hit by an explosive bomh.
Ight passengers snd the poor driver were killed; the
latter bad his legs blown off, and died. In a few hours
la a hospital. One man, seeing bombs dropping round
him, fell dead, and a policeman had to put on plain
clothes and go and break' th news to his ooor wife
There were splendid deeds of bravery, and wonderful
escapes. Tha Zeppelins had been seen quite plainly
two passed over our house; they looked Ilka small
gray clouds they were very high up. One bomb fell
exactly in the middle of a square, round which are
built hospitals, but only windows were shattered.
The next night, Thursday the 0th, wa were tol.l
they the Zepps had been sighted on the roast, so
there waa no going to bed. Fpeclal constables were
going up and down ordering lights to be lowered.
Tou would hardly belleva how dark every place Is
already, and what lamps are st'll lighted in the streets
nre daubed over with whitening or something, to dull
th flams. Of coure Scotland yard haa a plan, and
varies the plan I believe, aa it should be confusing,
but then there are plenty of spies about. But on thla
particular nl.ii.t the darkness was made darker, and
wa were in snd out on ths road, and sitting In our
porch, waiting, waiting. And it waa such a lovely
night, too; th stars shone ta a rttrk-blue eky: you
could hardly believe such fiendish things were hap
pening, and that such horrors could coma from the
fair heavens. Well, they did not come, and at last
we went to bed, tired out with our two nighta of ex
citement and no sleep worth speaking of. Thu next
flay we heard that our aeroplanes had driven back
th Oermena, who had got Into Kent that Is our
county and we also heard all sorts of cheering things
that forty French aeroplanes had come, that forty
French airmen had come, that the Thames waa lined
with special ships with special guns, all for our de
fense, and that our anti-aircraft now could fire twelve
miles Instead of seven. 8o we have taken heart of
grace whatever that is and we go to bed aa usual
one more, though I must say with straining aara.

Sunday's theology, and also have no con

That he may be strongly convinced that
"Billy" Sunday's theology is harmful to
mankind as thoy are that it is useful.
Kvery right thinking man admires Mr.
Wooster for his Independence of thought
and his frank and fearless expression
He also deserves honor and respect for
not stooping to the level ot his would-be
defamers In heaping th same silly per

for seven years and would like to have
you writ these few Una about criticis
ing the police. Thar are men arrested
very day and sent to ths penitentiary,
but It seems like they are' pardoned even
for murder, Th pollc have arrested lots
of good burglars and thieves, murderers
and every thing else that you could think
of, and they ara pardoned In a few years.
Then th public wonders why th police
don't stop crime. If the, critics would
criticise th pardon board for letting
these men out when they are caught,
there would not be ao much robbing go
ing on.
I hud my horn burglarized and the po
lice arrested the man wltu my Jewelry

was caught again holding up people.
Now, how on earth are they going to

stop reading that yellow sheet It would
go out of existence. Th Judge will not
do anything with th buma that come to

crime. The murderer of Smith la out on
