Ktbrtika'a Preiidential Prtfertace.
The people of tbe cAuotry at larg. aod of
Ntraaka in particular, are botog advlaed that
ibla la a preaidontUI year by tbe quickening ec
tivltle of ambltloua aApUanta for tbe rrpubllcaa
nomination, tbe anoppoel reoom I nation of
I'reoldent WUoon on tbe democratic ticket being
taken for granted.
fly reaeon of our peculiar preaUJentlal pref
erence primary wbldi la a freovfor-all go-aa-you-pleaae
no-entry-cbarge race, we In Nebraaka,
offer an Inritlng field for oar own and other fa
vorite aona, earn convinced that be baa tbe popu-
ar rail.
It may aa well be underatood, however, now
aa later, that If tbe republlcana of Nebraaka could
make Ibelr wiabea known and effective, tbey
would be for Charlea K. Hughe by an over
whelming majority. Not that we bave not a
neighborly feeling for Cummina or Had ley, not
that we do not admire Burton, not that we do
not respect tbe ability of Hoot, not that we'do
not rberlah a pereonal affection for Eatabrook,
not that the other randldatee do not appeal to
lie or are without frlenda here but tbe rapidly
focualng aentlment In Nebraaka, aa throughout
tbe nation, la formulating a demand for Hughes,
which la aura to be pretend with Increasing In-
slatenre and persistence.
Aa already declared, we share the view that
(ut'ies more than any other would be the stan
dard-bearer to unite all republican elements and
lead to certain victory. Further than this, we
bolleve a way will be found in due time by which
Nebraaka will be lined up for Hughea before we
commission our delegates to tbe Chicago Convention.
Orain Ratei and tha Omaha Market.
The Omaha Uraln Exchange la reopening 1U
fight to am ure an equitable adjustment of freight
ratea on grain to and from Omaha. A rather aa
tonlshlng exhibit has been prepared, showing In
explicable discrepancies In rates, and all of them
militating agalnat tbo local market. If the rates
charged for hauling grain to Omaha are Just,
the railroads are performing such aervlce for
Kanaaa City for nothing, aa they are apparently
hauling thousands of carloads bundreda of tnllee
without any charge. If the rate to Kanaaa City
1 Just, then the rate to Omaha la too high. Thli
la apparent.
Existing condltlona aa to freight tariffs that
lavor lival markata hava long been objected to
by Omaha dealera, and a thriving grain Industry
has been built up here, In spite of the dlacrtml
nation. It used to be the "long haul" that aup-
ported the argument agalnat our grain market,
but thla can not apply In the present caae,
for the roada get no more In any laatance, and
In many less, for the long haul to Kanaaa City.
Thla practice operatea to ahut Omaha out of a
large aectlon of Ita natural territory, making
polnta In Nebraska tributary to the Missouri city,
many mile further away. ,
Tbe Grain Exchange la repeating the expert
once of tho atock yards and packing houaea.
Many yeara of constant atruggle were needed to
accure adjustment of live atock ratea that mili
tated agalnat Omaha, but the long fight waa
finally won. The entire community la vitally
concerned in tbla matter, and tbe Grain Ex
change ahould bave the aupport of united Omaha
la Ita fight for elmple Justice.
Clearing Away tha Carrama Clouds.
The United 8tatea aenate will doubtless hold
up tho nomination ot Henry Prather Fletcher,
aa ambassador to Carrania'a government, until
the president makea satisfactory reply to the re
quest for Information aa to what Induced the
recognition ot Carraniaa de facto prealdent of
Mexico. Thla recognition came In a way that
euggeeta something of Intrigue, concerning which
Information la aought. Tor many week a before
the event, aubtle hlnta and significant wolsper
lnga were heard, all pointing to the fact that
Trealdeat Wilson favored the Carranxa cause,
Thla. too, at a time when the opponenta ot Car
ranxa were la position to prevent the "first
chief" from In any way making a showing aa the
executive head of Mexico. Kftorte at eel action
et a provisional government which would elimi
nate the contending factlona, or, at any rate, the
leadera. were brought to naught through aome
mysterious agency, until finally the watchful
waiter at the White House declared hie choice)
aa having rested on Venuatiano Carranxa, and
the Influence ot our government waa thrown la
tbe balaaca to decide agalnat the other Mexican
"ptrtota.u wha were to have had a free hand la
tbe settlement of their own affaire.
It la not charted that our prealdent la any
way connived at the end that hae been brought
about; alne he gav Carraaia hla favor, he haa
openly sought to establish hint In authority.
What the eoaate would like to know, and the
public, too. la Just how tar w are lavohred la
Mexlcaa affaire, and to what extent w are to
be chargeable tor Carranxa.

W. A. Dorrah, who wrltoo of them In Matalluglral
ao4 Chemical Eng1nar1n, boMs out hope that tho
now form of lamp wC aoon be on tho market.
The plan 4opte4 t ao to 4tn the lamp that
tho aupply of motorlaj for the arc will come, not
from tho oloctrodoa, but from a surrounding (aa or
vapor, and can bo need over an4 over aaaln. To
quota an4 ron4raa:
"A atu4y of tho Uht-fflrtencr of an arc from
a rhamical standpoint abowa that ther la certain
rathor limited elan of uhotance which when Intro
duced Into the are In small quantities produro
very great Increaao In luminosity. Thus the addi
tion of small quantities of cerium or calcium com
pounds to tho carbon are may Increaao Its efPciency
over 900 per cent, and tho addition of titanium (pre
ferably aa an old) to tho maanetlte arc similarly
prodiwea an increased luminosity without a corre
sponding Inereaao In enarrr-conaumptlon.
"A study of the foot tod to tho conception that
perhaps an arc could ba maintained In a closed ves
sel and aupptled with theso Ilrht-prodndng elements
In tha vapor-form.
"Accordingly, crude apparatus was arranged In
which two hard carbon electrodes were placed ver
tically above each other In a tight glaaa veaael, aud
an are drawn between the electrodes. As might ba
expected, thla are waa non-luminous and very un
atabla. Accordingly, a small amount of carbon
tetrachlorld waa poured Into tho veaael, with a rather
marked result. Tho arc then became stablo srd
could ha drawn out to several times the length
which was , previously poaalble, although Ita lumi
nosity waa not much Increaaed. A flaky soot formed
by the decomposition of tho oarbon tetrachlorld also
filled the glssa chamber. A trial waa next made witn
atannle chloiid, with similar Increase both tw
atahlllty and allowable are length. In thla caae, alsj
the luminosity of the aro waa much greater. Tha
stannlo rhlorid, however, waa decomposed by tha
air and moisture present, forming a white Insoluh
powder upon the walla of the chamber, aoon shutting
out most of the light.
"A mora elaborate apparatus wss therefore con
structed In which tha graphite electrodes were
separated by an electro-magnet acting upon an Iron
core within a glass chamber.
"The air waa exhausted from the chamber, a
amatl quantity of stannlo chloiid vapor at a pres
euro of from three to four centimeters waa allowed
to enter and tha aro drawn. Under theso condltlona
a stable are three to four Inchea long oould be pro
duced. The ero waa Intensely white and ao steady
that It had tha appearance of a thick Incandescent
filament alightly bowed and at rroundod by flame
Ilka less lumlnoua ahell of yellow. Tho vapors from
thta aro, however, aoon collected on the walla, form
ing denae brown coat, which proved to be mainly
tin ceroid with mixture of atannle chlorld and
other Intermediate eompounda.
"These preliminary teata having Indicated possi
bilities aa oral! aa having shown the difficulties to be
overcome, additional amaller lampa were constructed
along somewhat Improved tinea."
The typ finally adopted haa an arc -chamber In
which the are la formed between tunraten eleatrodea,
partly surrounded with a refractory Insulator. Experi
ment showed the exact combination, of gasea that
would produce tho leaat "soot." Theso are Intro
duced In liquid form. The appearanc of the aro In
tho new lamp la described aa differing In Important
yeapecte .from that of the ordinary arc-tamp. We
read: "It la uaually very atabla, about 'one-eight-Inch
In diameter, tubular In form, and varlea from
two to five Incba tn length, the varlatlona being
due to difference In pressure, naturae of tbe gases
supplied,' etc.' A high pressure naturally Increases
tha Intrlnelo brilliancy ot tho aro, but makea It neces
sary to operate at a shorter length, aa the gaa cur
rent due to tempemturo-dlfferenoea and arc-reaction
aro eorreapondlngly more vlotont. Tho diameter ot
the central lumlnoua tube la alao reduced wtth a
Increase In praosuro.
"Soma of the area rovotvo very slowly, but as
a rule tbo low pressure of tbe gases minimises the
motion of the are. and tho general appearance la
that of thick. Intensely white Incandescent fila
ment allahtly bent at tho upper end. With some ot
the vapor, as. for example, tho metal tod halogen
compound. , antimony, phosphorus, and araenlo
chloride, the central tubular portion la aurrounded
by ragged flam, which la light pink tn tho case
of arsenic and pale green In the caa of phosphorua.
"The flame portion acta somewhat aa an absorb
ing ecreen, thuo reducing tho total nsefMl radiation.
It la a eurtoua fact that this flame nay extat for a
short, but ppreclol time after the circuit haa been
Interrupted, thus faaMcoUn that It probably does not
hare a part in tbo eooductlo of electricity throuah
the vapor, but appero rather to bo eon I whk-h

The oleomargarine tax Instead of
being raised should ba repealed. It ws
passed In tho first place at the Instiga
tion of the dairy Interests merely to
hamper oleomargarine and handicap Ita

has never deceived anyone. In fact Its
repesl la advocated by the revenue de
partment Itself as a costly, oseleas and
thoroughly bothersome piece of legisla
tion. Another Item which la usually over
looked la that the tax la borne, not by
the makers, but by tho users of

simply added to tho price of the product

That Wretched lnfluenaa came to our
house today.
He brought along a bag of pains and
vowe-d he'd come to stay.
New a ster she's a-sneeiln and Ar
thur's coughin' bad:
Seems like it la the worst attack our
brother ever had.
Tho doctor says, bo careful, keep away
from them that's ill:
And if you have bad feelln'a, be aura to
take a pill.
And hold your distance well, when there'
eneesin' roundabout.
For the irrtp germa'll git you if you don't
watch out.
Accordin' to directions, you should keep
quite warm and dry;
And, thouKh you like it very much. Just
take one piece of pie;
An' cut out all the hearty foods and swal
low down fresh air; '
An' shun the crowded places like you
would a lion's lair!
And keep away from people who hava
sniffles in the head
Or else no doubt you'll have to atay
for several days In bed.
In short, ovoid all places where the sick
bugs are about.
For the grip (terms' 11 git you If you don't
watch out.
But if to all my cautions you refuse to
lend an ear.
Don't be surprised If some day you are
smitten plain snd clear.
A chill, unpleasant, seises you, you shiver
and you shake:
Some more Ills come to ro'n you, yott
arc hurnlntt and you ache;
A-sneesin' and a-"Coug1iln' hard, your
fever rises fast
Now Old Man Influenza has got hold
of youat last.
To bed you go with potlona vile and
medicines ahout.
For the grip germs have got yon 'cause
you didn't watch out.
