A Question of Opinion.
The Bee e presses the opinion that the movement,
to set Mr. Hiighea on tha Nebraska preferential pri
mary ballot aa a candidate for president la an unwise
one. and "III advlssd from every point of view." That
paper even noes further and declares "Justice Hughe
cannot afford to permit any coterie of political self,
scrkera to tin- him to pull themeelvea up by the boot
straps." thoush The Bee at the asme lime admits Jus
tice Hiiirhs would he "an Ideal candidate," and If
nominated "hla victory over Wilson would lx fore
ordained." The Tribune falls to take the view of The Bee In
some particulars. It does not f warranted, for In
stance. In designating the forty-five prominent Ne
braskana of all shades of republicanism who signed
the Hushes petition as being "self-seekers," The farte
do not Justify that. Neither doea It believe, from anch
Information It can get, that It Is wholly beyond hope
to get Mr. Hughes to acquleace In the procedure to
get him to stand for a nomination.
Furthermore, the presidential primary plan adopted
In Nebraska la for the purpose of affording the people
of this state opportunity to expresa their presidential
preferences. If tha republicans of Nebraska are fur
Hughes, as we believe them to he by a large prepon
derating majority, why ahould they not so express
themselves, whether Mr. Hughes endorses It or not-?
Even The Bee gives voice to the hope that It may
come to pass that at some point In tha balloting by
the national convention sentiment will swing around
to Hughes. In that event Nehraaka wll ba the nil
ileus of his bocm. If It doesn't awing to him, what,
difference does it make to Nebraska? If Nebraeki
republicans want to vote for Washington or Lincoln It
la their privilege, regardless of what tha national con
vention does. That certainly wouldn't he properly
called "self-seeking"; It would merely be giving op
portunity for expression of the popular will. The self,
seeker la the one who watches and walta for the cat
to Jump. Fremont Tribune.
While conceding every one a right to his
opinion, The Bee also Insists upon preserving its
right of opinion, and in thin Instance our opinion
is the one that seems to have the support of sub
sequent events. Even Brother Hammond will
now have to confess disappointment in his "hope
to get Mr. Hughes to acquiesce in the procedure
to get him to stsnd for a nomination," which we
sSw was foredoomed from the outset.
As to what constitutes a "self seeker," the
phrsse explains Itself, but actions spesk louder
than words. Why forty-five names secretly and
stealthily signed to a petition should be filed to
voice a popular demand belles the avowal of pur
pose. A sincere desire to Impress Justice Hughes
with the unanimity of the call would not have
gone about It In this way; Instead of an exclusive
self-chosen few an invitation would have been
issued asking everyone favoring the desired can
didate either to meet and adopt a resolution ask
ing him to run, or to join In a monster petition
signed not by forty-five, but by 4,500, or prefer
ably 45.000, although existing conditions might
still have made It Impossible for Justice Hughes
Where the Hughes '.'conscription" movement
miscarried was In Its collision with our presiden
tial primary law, which proceeds on the theory
that only such candidates for office or prefer
ment aball have their names on the ballot as are
avowedly running for the office. This law fur
ther contemplates a popular Instruction upon
the convention delegates, and the choice of dele
gates who will In good faith carry out the In
struction. Brother Hammond suggests that "if
Nebraska republicans want to vote for Washing
ton or Lincoln It Is tholr privilege," but for any
handful of men to file the name of Washington
or Lincoln merely to use the popularity of their
names for self-aggrandlsement, would he mak
ing a farce of the whole direct primary principle.
Such self-seeking would be self-evident, but only
little more self-evident than the other example.
President to Urge Economy.
That a presidential election Is approaching is
manifest from recent conferences of democratic
leaders in congress and the word that the presi
dent In his forthcoming message will recommend
the strictest economies In appropriations. All of
which calls attention to this forgotten and un
fulfilled promise of economy made in the last
national platform of tha party:
We denounce the profligate waste of money wrung
from tha people by oppressive taxation through tha
lavish approprlatlona of recent republican congresses,
which have kept taxes high and reduced the purchas
ing power of the people's toll. We demand a return
to that simplicity and economy which befits a demo
cratic government and a reduction of tha number of
uaeleas offlcea, the salaries of which drain the sub
stance of tha people.
This, It was heralded, was one of the "pledges
made to be kept" and "not molasses to catch
files." But how has It been kept? The first
democratic congress after the election, appro
priated M.m.OOO.OOO, or $113,000,000 more
than Its predecessor, which waa democratic, and
1177,000,000 more than its last republican pre
decessor. Congressman Fitsgerald, chairman ot
the appropriations committee, a democrat, ap
pealed to hia colleagues to cut the appropriations
and declared they were a mockery of democratic
pretense, but his appeal was unheeded. With
this record of promise and lack of performance,
it Is not strange the party leaders and the presi
dent should at this late day seek to make an
effort at redeeming pledges which assisted them
Into office. The worst feature of the democratic
riot or appropriations ia that the really neces
sary things were cut and the pork barrel filled
to overflowing with a resulting prospect of large
deficiency appropriations being required.
Confronted with broken promises of economy
and a treasury nesrly empty, some radical re
striction of appropriations can be expected, but
thoughtful votera are likely to Inquire why the
mark was not hit until Just before election.
Some illuminating aide-lights on the effect of
Psy-as-you-enter" Instead of "Collect-after-you-Mt-ln"
are furnished by the reports of the Lin
coln Traction company, Just made public, which
gives figures that tempt a resort to pencil and
paper. The Lincoln atreet cara carried 11,411.
457 passengers during the year, from each of
whom the average amount collected waa 4.BS
cents as compared with 4.4 S cents the year be
fore, "an Increase ascribed to the new fare boxes."
By subtraction, we find -that the exact measure
ment of the increaae ts .0005 of a cent per pas-rt-nvar,
which, applied to the number of paasn.
eie carried, foots t.-p $3,805.71. In another
part of the report we are told that "the new reg
istering fare devices cost $ 13,77s," so that "Pay-a-you-nter"
will pay for Itself in a little over
I o years, after which all ot the extra collections
be "velvet" for the company. Thia la the
x.M-rlence or Lincoln and we take it in similar
r irea the experience of Omaha and other cities.
It is worth while noting thst Germany is not

The Output of the Courts
THR3 VOU MR of our rasa law, and this mvsns,
not only the Increasing number of decisions, but
the disproportionate Increase In the maaa of
these opinions, Is alwaya a subject for thought an!
The consldem'to-i of this matter uaually becomes
more acute about, the time of tha annual meeting of
the American Bar association, and for a good many
years suggestions of one kind or another have been
made, and have received tha consideration of com
mittees sppolnted for tha purpoae.
Obviously an easy way to reduce tha volume of tha
case law Is to omit from the state reports certain
opinions which have been held as unimportant by
aome authority. Experiments alone this line have
been made, and have failed In ao many states thst
thla plan must surely be rejected.
As an Instance indurating its failure, there may le
t cited the example of the supreme court of Tennessee,
where, once In a while. It Is necessary for the court
In aome Important opinion, which la to he officially
reported, to cite and rely on for Its derision some
"unimportant" and unreported previous decision.
It la becoming more and more obvious that tha num.
her of opinions must be reduced by allowing the
courts to decide caaea without opinion upon tha ex
press authority of a previous decision of the court In
which an opinion haa been written, and that the length
of the opinions which are written must be reduced
by providing the Judges the opportunity to give mora
cartful consideration to the preparation of each opin
ion which ia written.
There are difficulties to ba overcome. Statutes will
have to ba amended In many states, permitting tne
Judges to decide caaea without opinion, and reliev
ing them from the necessity of touching In their
opinion on every point raised In appeal.
The disfavor of attorneys whose cases are dispose!
of without opinion is another conalderation which
looks large to the Judge who must coma up for re
election every two or four yeara, although this ob.
Jectlon need not concern tha Judge who la appointed
for life or Is elected for a long period of years.
A reduction In tha number of opinions which must
be written necessarily gives more time for the prep
aration of those which must ba written. The oppor
tunity to dictate to stenographers haa probably con
tributed more than any other one thing to the pro
duction of long and Ill-considered opinions.
It would be wholly unfair to base a commendation
or a criticism of any court solely upon Its output. A
court which is compelled by law to dispose of every
point raised In the appeal must necessarily write long
oplnlona, and If tha law alao permits In that state all
aorta of row caaea and dog caaea to bo appealed us
the aupreme court that court must alao write many
In October. 1909. we "published In the Docket a

formation, taking the calendar year 1914 as a basis,
and have shown, not only tha number of cases In
which opinions were written, hut also tha number of

available we have been able to aet forth, a.i a part

Twice Told Tales

In ancient Greece there lived a learned Judge who
was very deaf. Before him one day there appeared
two litigants who alao were very deaf. There being
ao attorneys to Impede and retaxd Juetioe in those
days, the Judge invited tha plaintiff to state his case.
Tha plaintiff arose. "This man," ha eeJa, pointing
to tha defendant, "la a tenant in my property. He
haan't paid any rent for a long time, and refuses to
do so. I ask your honor for a decree which will enable
ma to collect what ta due mo."
The plaintiff having ftnlahed and sat dowa. tha
Judge motioned for the defendant to stand and tell
hla aids of tha story. The defendant aaid: "I do not
own the dog. I am sorry ho bit tha gentle man, but
ha doea not belong to ma. and I do not feel that I
should ba responsible for tba durax ha Inflicts. '
The defendant sat down and tha Judge drew hia

OMAHA. Neb.. Nov. 22. To the Editor
of The Bee: At a meeting before the rail
road commission was t&ken up a hearing
upon an order Issued by the railroads
prohibiting the sale of all commodities
from cars on the'.r right-of-way.
Now this Is a question that Interests
at least two-thirds of the people through
out the state.
We taking the stand of producers. It Is
to our interest to get our produce to
market at the loe-eit poselble cost.
fltop the selling or peddling off of cars,
and It shuts out practically all competi
tion, a a the commission men and the
merchants will have It all their own way.
This rule will shut out at least 90 per
cent of the .ulk apples.
This will enchance the Trice to the con
aurrer throughout the state from 40 to
en cents per bushel.
No. 1 apples cannot be raised, sprayed
and properly cared for less than SO oenta
a bushel on trees, but the Inferior stock
that la a waste and can be and ta shipped
out through the state and frequently Bold
aa low aa 40 to 50 oenta, these praotlcaily
fill orders for their present use and can
be taken car of In a great many dif
ferent ways for future use. It la a fact
that the majority of families will con
sume five times as many apples at 50
cents a bushel as they will at 11.50.
Which Is the beat for the greatest num
ber of people? We are all talking high
coat of living. Cut out the delivering of
apples, potatoes, cabbage, pear a, peaches
and all of these commodities and It will
coat thia state millions yearly.
Apples are different from other pro
ducts; they must be barreled In order to
get them to their destination in good
shape. Thla cannot be done for less than
25 to IS cents per bushel, to barrel or box.
We can ship and aell No. 1 apples In bulk
nearly all over the state at 90 cents to
$1 00 per, bushel. This will allow us a
respectablo price for our fruit aa no one
can grow fruit at the present the way
wa have to spray and care for our or
chards for less. Now if we are not al
lowed to sell from car ws will be forced
to rent a room and move or unload them
and tha more they are handled tiie worse
they are and It cannot be dona for lesa
than 10 to 20 centa per bushel, besides, in
nine-tenths of the amall towns one could
not sell a car In a small town at all.
There was a time when apples were a
luxury, but at present they are a neces
sity and are tha greatest health preserver
of all fruits.
Looking at It from the railroads' stand
point It is a fact this has been the cus
tom for years, allowing the sale from
There is no law eompelllns; them to
allow thla. It to their right-of-way. Tha
cars ara their property and we, aa pro
ducers or eonaumers, cannot force them
to tent ua their property. It la a fact that
people are taking chances around their
yards where trains are at work; there
muy be accidents caused from careless
ness on tha part of persons, or of their
employes, and cause a suit for damage,
as persons and tea ma on their premises
are more or lesa in danger to examine
the produce or what it may be. Persons
must enter car ar.d are taking chances,
but, taking tha whole thing from a bual
neas standpoint, whether the railway com
mlaaloa will allow them to enforce this
rule. It will surely incur a great Injustice
to tha general public.
Why at thla time do they come and
exact this? They claim that they are not
getting as much out of their cars set
ting on ths tracks, receiving demurrage,
as they would ba otherwise using them,
and others waiting to get them, and
thereby they could receive greater rev
enue than renting them out to peddlers.
This may be the ease, but are they any
different than Individuals? Ara they not
common Barriers? Have ws not some
rights they must respect? They must
take In consideration that we are tha
people from whom they derive their sup
port. While they may loaa a little when their
oars ara being used for peddling, If this
were eliminated, would they not lose
tan times as much in not allowing thla
cheaper produce to move and by so
cutting that out would they not be the
loser In transportation? As if this cannot
be sold from oara It will never be shipped
at all and will practically have to rot,
thereby depriving many from gooda they
could use If they were not debarred.
From a grower's standpoint It does look
as If they were making one of the great
eat mlatakea by this rule that they could
have Issued. Tha railroads should re
member that without them we can live,
whilst It might ba a little Inconvenient,
but It la Surely a cinch that they cannot
live without us.
Our motto is, live and let live. Those In

I look the whole year over and I haven't
gained In health.
Nor xhot to fame and glory hur been
bothered much with wealth.
But atill I pet to thinking of the things
that mlnht have been.
And of the (nlka in trouble that so far
I've not liecn In.
And then, although I'm poorer than a
starving alley est.
I think that I am thankful In a measure
Just for that.

observe how all the rest
Have their troubles and their sorrows,

are J'it as well let lie.
And I don't know anybody I would

So I sluh a penile blessing on the few
things In my lot.
And I sing a thankful measure for the
