Docile New York Democrats.
The democratic donkey in New York Is not
altogether a stupid ass; It knows from whence
floweth the nillR and honey on which it thrives.
The informal convention of the Empire state
democrats modestly and without undue ostenta
tion gives Its endorsement to (he president, and
tentatively at least promises him support In hia
second term aspirations. Leas than this could
hardly have been expected. The gathering at
Syracuse was notable for absence of the men
against whom Mr. Bryan launched bis thunder
bolts at Baltimore. Tammany sachems wera
discreetly kept In thai background, while tha
up-state chiefs beat the tom-tom and did tha
dancing. This doesnt mean that the 1 1 tier's
appetite is not as keen aa ever, or that he has
given over any of his propensities. The men
who control the machinery of the party in New
York are expert enough to know when to ba
docile. Tbey will be in line at St. Louis all
right, and will not relnqulsh their present hold
on the public payroll until they have to. The
continuance of Norman E. Mack as national
committeeman shows how perfect the con
cord Is.
The Vice Explosion in Minneapolis.
Having been periodically advertised by pro
fessional reformers as "the wickedest city In
the world" Omaha has a sympathetic fellow
feeling for Minneapolis, which is the latest to
be so branded, and yet, with the experience of
our own town in mind, we would not want the
good people of Minneapolis to take It too hard.
Only a few weeks ago. It was Baltimore that
had a sensational vice report exploded beneath
It, and before that It was Chicago and Pitts
burgh and various others. Tha presumption is
that It is a mighty poor town that cannot yield
up sufficient yellow-hued material for a scath
ing arraignment of Its morals to Investigators,
well meaning or not, bent on finding what they
are looking for and that one live town differs
from another In this respect only In degree. It
goes without saying, too, that people have to ba
told every little while how bad they ara in order
to make them try to do better or to stop them
from growing worse. The agencies of prevention
and Improvement, however, ara working all the
time If lost cities had no way to be aaved ex
cept by these sporadic outbursts of vlce-ex-posers
snd reformers they would. Indeed, be In
tight lines.
Mystery of Passenger Rate Making-.
When the lay mind sets out on a Journey
through the labyrinth of railroad tariffs, it
soon succumbs to the mystifying Influence of
the tangle, and on recovery is willing to admit
that tha science of rate-making surpasses any
other known form of hocus pocus. Just a few
days ago, tha railroads of tha west were plead
ing befora tha Interstate Commerce commission
for authority to raise passenger rates. At the
same time, the Missouri Pacific was befora the
federal court in Omaha, asking for an order to
restrain tha state board from enforolng tha
2-cent rate. In each case the plea was that tha
rata permitted was not remunerative, and In
each case relief asked for was granted. Now
comes tha announcement that tha Missouri Pa
cific has reduced interstate rates between
Omaha and Kansas City! Its Una connecting
these two cities runs through tha l-cent tone of
Nebraska and Kansas. Tha public will not re
sent tha cut, but will be left wondering how it
could ba made It tha Missouri Pacific's plea in
court was honestly presented.
An Excellent Appointment
Considering that Governor Morehead was
bound to choose a member of his own demo
cratic party to fill tha strictly nonpartisan posi
tion vacant on tha district bench,' his selec
tion of Arthur C. Wakeley commenda Itself
aa an excellent one. Tha new Judge Is not
only a lawyer of good standing who would
never stoop to disreputable practices, but
ha comes of a flna Judicial family, hia father,
tba lata Eleaser Wakeley, having presided over
the same district court before him, always with
credit and due appreciation of the responsi
bilities of tha office. To have another Judge
Wakeley on tha bench will therefore bring tba
sound of a familiar name and we feel sura, from
long personal acquaintance, that tha record ha
will maka will be likewise creditable to all con
cerned. v
Cannon of the Future.
Prof. Rausanberger, expert gunmakar of the
Krupp cannon factory, expands with profes
sional prlda when talking of tha achievement
of his forty-two-centimeter monster, but mod
estly admits that even greater possibilities
await tha future builder of cannon. Ouns nor
projectiles have reached the limit of their capac
Ity for destruction, according to this designer,
which means that even greater preparations for
defense must be made. Thus will 'the duel that
has gone on from the very beginning of things
between offense and defense ba continued
never to be ended, till man learns to devote his
constructive ability to better purposes.
The present war has awakened a spirit that
may lead tha race of men to a plane where can
non will not be the court of final resort. Tha
thunder of the guns that shook down Liege and
Louvaln, that battered Przemysl and Warsaw,
and now ara ahattering heaven and earth at
Verdun, haa atlrred the soul of mankind to
thinking of other things than guns. The thinker
Is looking far ahead to a day when right and
Jrstlce may be establ'shed without the sacrifice
of countless human lives or the destruction or
unmeasured wealth. Through what agency this
end may be gained is not so easily determined,
but in Urns some meeting point will be found
where man's many concerns and dlverso Inter
ests may be harmonized and his energy turned
to creation. This Is yet the day of the sword,
but tha time will come when the sword will be
sheathed, when order will not rest solely on
The possibilities or the cannon maker have
r.ot been exhausted, nor haa tha peacemaker
reached the limit or hia ability. If the war in
Europa teacbea any lesson, it will be In the in
terest of peace.
Considerable heat under tha collar Is rusnl
leated by New Yorkers because Henry Ford pub
lishes his opinions and pays for the space. In
dignation is expressed in resolutions condemn
ing the automobile magnate as "a near-traitor"
to his country. But the indignant citizens
shrewdly avoid psyin8 space rates for their Indignation.
Thrift vs, Conscience
1 iaaaoU ana. "
Mn who know what conscience me ens hava a
rhanca to reitle with an Interesting problem.
Tha dletrlct rourt recently held thai District Court
Cleik Robert Umlth may retain something ilka W.a
he had collected aa surh officer In fees for issuing
naturalisation papers In Omaha.
Tha federal law provides that naturalisation pa
pers must he secured through tha office of tha clerk
of tha di'trti-t court, and anthorlsea a tea for tha
service. There la a state law which requires tha
clerk In ea h district to make a report of all feea
collected by him, and fixes tha amount of tha salary
of clerks, which varies by reason of classifications
on account of population.
Thla law makes no distinction as to tha sources
of such fees, but through soma provision of tha fed
eral law It seem a poeelbte to hold that naturalisation
fees go to the clerk In addition to hla compensation
through his salary allowance.
A great many of tha dletrlct clerks of the ata'e
paid ovet to their respective counties tha fees col
lected for it. la service. Just ss they did tha fees re
ceived tinder the stata laws, but tha Douglas county
district clerk did not. It waa only after long litiga
tion that the court held that Clerk fmlth might hang
to tha eVXO.
Now the problem ia, how do thosa clerks feel who
paid them over to their countlea? How would you
feel wera you In their places? Would you feel that Jrotl
had bilked yourself? Or would you fall back en con
science and set satisfaction out of tha conviction
that you had done your duty In making tha aac
rlflce? Or as another alternative, would you bring
ault aaalnsl the county for the recovery of th
money ?

Legislation sal Special Interests-
OMAHA. March t.-To th Editor of
The Bee: Tour editorial of February M
headed, "Progressive Legislation," la In
deed a timely exposure of th popular
fallacy, that there exists a sinister coali
tion of the so-celled "special Interests"
to defeat progressiva legislation.' This
matter has been so persistently drummed
Into our esrs that It receives far more
credit than It deserves.
A great deal of the lobbying in our law
making bodies ia merely In defense
against blackmailing attempts aimed at
public service corporations, railroads, in
surance companies, lloeral interests, etc.
I know that auch attempta are regular
occurrences at every legislative session.
The so-called Interests assailed, however,
have their own axes to grind, snd hsve
no time to aid th other fellow. This ap
plies especially to the liberal Interesta
quite generally misnamed th "liquor In
terests." It la generally admitted that
some corporate Interests hsve often fos
tered and created prohibition waves In
order to divert attention from their own
troubles. Many Instances can be cited
and especially the connection between tha
Colorado coal strike and the prohibition
campaign In that state. Some people
may honestly believe that there Is som
connection between the various private
Interests and the libera' element. Politi
cal tricksters and demagogues are cer
tainly making capital out of these ever
lastingly repeated charges In order to
make a convenient scapegoat out of. the
liberal element, and professional prohibi
tionists delight In picturing them as an
all powerful octopus.
This is sn era of headllners and catch
phrases like "preparedness," "watchful
waiting," "brewery tools." "booie." etc.,
do more to confuse the "thlnk-laty"
reader then all other agencies combined.

aa to Waahlaa-toaTa Birthday.
OMAHA. March l.-To the Editor of
The Bee: I may he somewhat old fogy
Ish about It. but I never could see any
rood reason for closing the schools on
Oeorga Waahington's birthday. I should
think tha best plan would be to hsve
som special exercises on that day com
mamoratlva of the life and tlmea of
Oeorg Washington. I will wager that
not on pupil out of 600 even thought of
Washington on the twenty-second day of
I aaid to on high school pupil that I
ahould think it would be more appro
priate to hold soma exerci.tea that would
bring to view the Ufa and dolnga of Wash
ington. Ho said he did not think ro. for
then they would not have any fun by
having a holiday. He admitted to me
that he did not think of George Washing
ton on his birthday until Just as he wa
getting ready to go to bed and then sim
ply remembered tha fact without any spe
cial thought of Washington.
It would be of mot benefit to the ris
ing feneration to have anme klnH ...
erclses commemorating th deeds of
Washington than to hava them run wild
on the streets with no special aim In
view. Why would It pot be a good rlan
for th school authorities to fix up i
program for February 22, JM7. that will
b of benefit to the pupils of th schools
of a far mors reachlrur character than
what they will learn by running th
afreets because they have a holiday.
Ther is plenty of time to fix up a flno
program for the schools for next year
and It would not hurt to begin at once.
Then cut out the holiday next year and
devote the r!ay to teaching patriotism In
these critical days of the world.
Principle Above Theory.
OMAHA. South Side. Maroli . To the
Editor of Th Bee: When governments
are formed by breaking away of colonlea
from countries having control of them,
or overthrowing of a government by tha
people and the establishing of a differ
ent form of government, certain great
principles of government are aet out to
not only meet the occasion, but resch to
the future prosperity of the country.
Aa applied to this nation, let us con
sider text In an inverse order, so that
theory may be eliminated If possible. W
ar told by authorities that theory 1s a
doctrine or scheme of things, which ter
mtnates in speculation or contemplation
without a view practice; mere saccula
tion. It naturally follows then that that In
th formation of a government It must
b dedicated to som principle that meets
th requirements of the pre Kent and will
reach to th future. Equity and Justice
to all men being among th cardinal
principles to which this nation waa dedi
cated in its formation, it only remains
to ascertain whether the faith of tha
founders has been realized, and self
government Is not an experiment, but a
At th outset much doubt was expressed
by tha civilized world as to th practi
cability of forming a government whoae
cltlaena are sovereigns, but that doubt
haa long alnce been dispelled, and those
doubtless have bean forced to acknowl
edge the growth, prosperity and standing
that this nation Is now placed In among
the nations of the world, its influence
being felt and courted by all nations.
As exigencies have arisen. Americana
have seen th necessity of reaching fur
ther and hare so amended their organic
law to meet thoae neoeasltles. and by
proper legislation aought to carry auch
amendments Into effect.
In acquiring additional territory It haa
never been th policy of thla government
to add thereto by conquest, but by pur
chase on an equitable basis. For wrongs
dons, only such compensation has been
asked as equity would demand. By a
strict adherence to principle, a strong
foundation haa been established and man
kind benefited. Result In strict adherenc
to principle ar numerous and laattng.
Shall we continue in suoh course or shall
we begin to theorls with no high Ideal
in view. I, for one. say. look to principle
for th high Ideal, for In doing ao this
country Is safe in tha hands of Its cltl
sein. CLINKER.
