The March lion hasn't anything on congress
when the latter Is wound up.

Strange as It may seem, the lighting ques

Nevertheless, the opposition sent to the
White House Information calculated to produce
the "sober second thought"
An awful stamp In bull moose votes Is dis

The unmistakable note running through the
tumult of congress conveys to the White House
two sobering words: "do low."

Colonel Bryan says the vote of congress
doesn't mean anything. Similar comment wat
offered on the popular votes of 1896, 1900 and
1908, but they did the business Just the same.

is to be used for the King's Highway next rail,
it Is up to Ak-8ar-Ben to cut out of the street

rough stuff that put the last one In so bad.
In seeking expert advice on municipal street
lighting it behooves the city commission to move
cautiously. Securing disinterested expert opinion
on matters electrical Is not an easy task, so com
pletely does "vested Interests" control tbe ex

The Latest German Note.
The text of tbe German note delivered by
Count von Bernstorff to Secretary Lansing may
reasonably be Interpreted as Indicating a dispo
sition on tbe part of Germany to modify its sub
marine campaign, in some way to comply mith
e utahlished aea law. Claiming that the submer
sible is a new arm, the exact status of which is
not established by convention or law, the Ger
man Rovernment pleads that it be given a stand
ing that will permit use against commerce ss
well ns for offensive or defensive warfare. The
difficulty of writing new law in the presence of
war Is admitted, but refuge Is found behind al
leged violations of existing law charged against
Great Britain.
Here Is the weakest point of the Oerman
position. By no reasonable process of logic can
be supported the implied contention that In pur
suit of its submarine policy Is Germany righting
the wrongs put upon neutral commerce by
Great Britain. That the law of blockade was
violated by the establishment of a world-wide
war rone through the order-ln-councll that
superseded the Declaration of London has been
Insisted by all neutrals, but they are making
their protest directly to Oreat Britain and Us
allies. Nor will It fully suffice that Germany
promise conditionally to obey the law If Great
Britain equally agrees to do so. The case of
the neutrals can not rest on such premise. Ef
forts to secure agreement between the belliger
ents has already failed, and the matters there
fore must be dealt with, regardless of thelr
It must be kept in mind, too, that at no time
has the United States abandoned Its protest
against the Illegal acts of Great Britain, but this
government has pushed Its case with all energy,
although It has been overshadowed by the pres
ence of the more acute situation occasioned by
the work of the submarine. The American peo
ple are not yet ready to surrender all neutral
rights to either side.
Power of the Imagination
Democratic Dilemma in Nebraska.
It Is Indeed refreshing to hear our amiable
democratic contemporary, the World-Herald,
urging that the party come to Nebraska for a
running mate for President Wilson In order to
strengthen the cause of democracy in a "doubt
ful state." Things must certainly be In a bad
way on the democratto side of tbe fence If a
president seeking re-election on his record must
be bolstered up in the state from which he se
lected his cabinet premier by associating with
him someone of only local political prestige.
Here In Nebraska all the democratic ele
ments are professing intense loyalty to the pres
ident's polfttcal fortunes, but obviously It Is for
the roost part mere lip service stimulated by the
hope of office or patronage preferment. Be
yond this, the democratic faction-leaders are
pulling apart and waging a death battle for
supremacy within the party.
Nebraska a "doubtful state" from the demo
cratic viewpoint? It certainly Is. And when
the principal democratic organ la moved to make
that admission It Is tantamount to confession
that Nebraska is already regarded irretrievably
lost from the democratic column unless some
hoped-for but not expected life-saving miracle
transpires before the November voting.
Way Clear for the President.
' Mr. Wilson may now' proceed with the per
formance of his constitutional duties, with the
assurance that congress is not, for the time at
least, to Intercept tbe executive prerogative. The
way has been cleared for him by dint of utmost
exertion of party Influence, and the adoption of
such means aa will leave those outside the Inner
councils of democracy wondering Just what has
been achieved. So far as numerical preponder
ance enters into the calculation, the vote la most
decisive. Totals, however Imposing, frequently
lack the element of finality, and that most essen
tial factor seems to be here missing. As In the
senate, when a similar test of strength was had
last week, the decision Is suspended, not ex
Whether the vote was to save his face, or to
honestly support the president, the house has
followed the line of least resistance, and has
left the question in an unsatisfactory position.
It Is admitted that certain members of the ma
jority party In congress are ready at any time,
for partisan or factional reasons, to hamper or
thwart the president In any of his actions in con
nection with his foreign policy. This clique has
avoided a square test of strength by temporarily
hutting off opporuntty for fair consideration of
the Issue on Its merits. Dodging behind a tech
nical parliamentary maneuver permits the par
tisan to pose as a patriot, a refuge to which
many of tbe democrats swiftly flew.
The next move In this domestic disagreement
must wait on diplomatic action. It Is only cer
tain the marplots of democracy will not cease
to embarrass the executive In whatever negotia
tion ha may undertake.

Keaion in Wage-Firing Action.
Quietly, and without reported friction, com
mittees representing operators and miners have
concluded their labors and ratified a wage scale
that brings an increase In pay of $8,000,000 a
year to the men In the great central bituminous
coal districts, and will affect wages of coal
miners everywhere. Contrast this procedure
with the strife and turmoil of the past, of strikes
and lockouts, destruction of life and property,
and the embroilment of whole states in a wage
controversy. At the late convention of the
United Mine Workers of America It wag voted
that work would continue In all mines, pending
settlement of the wage scale. Negotiation!
were promptly taken up, with a conciliatory
attitude on both sides, and the result is Just an
nounced from New York. No better exempli
flcatlon of the power of reason in wage-fixing
action could be asked. The railroad men can
well afford to follow the example of the miners.

A MONO tha many phenomena which our fellow,
men rreaent to ua for our wonder and instruc
tion, none is mora curloua than the strange
limitation of the power of the Imagination which iwroi
to make many persona unable to aee, mentally,
things which are not evident to their eyesight. This
Is Illustrated by tha following question which, alnxu
larly enough, haa come almost simultaneously from
places aa wide apart aa Ban Francisco, Chicago and
"If the world were twlc larger, and a perfect
glole, and a pleca of glaaa a quarter of an In- h
square were put on It, would every part of the glas
touch the globe?"
In aome of the letter It la stated that this quest'on
haa been made the subject of a wager. Evidently
th things occasionally run in wavea through the
general mind.
Assuming, as Beams due from the character of the
letter, that the question Is aerlously asked, one won
ders why It waa thought n wee nary to double the size
of the earth. Taking the earth aa It Is. If It were an
abeolutely perfect sphere, a perfectly flat bit of glas
a quarter of an Inch aquare laid upon It would aeem.
even If viewed with a powerful microscope, to touch
with It entire tinder aurface. But that would be a
deception, for the glass would only touch at the cen
tral point.
Tha earth rounds off eight Inches In a miie, and
the amount of depression varies aa the aquare of tha
distance from the tangent point, or point of touch.
An eighth of an Inch (half tha diameter of tha piece
of glaaa). la tha 60t.Wth part of a mile. The aquare
of this Is 2M, Divide this by eight and we
aea that the apace separating the outer edgea of the
glasa from the sphere would ba about one-thirty-two-thousandV-mllllonth
of an inch! This space would be
decreased with Increase of the earth's sire, but no
matter how large the earth became there would al
ways be some apace left
Tim and thought given to such things are by no
means wasted, because they show how limited would
be our knowledge of tha universe around ua If that
knowledge were confined to what we could actually
aee, or measure with instrument. Upon the scientific
ua of the Imagination 1 baaed a very large part of
the knowledge of nature that we possess. If we could
not mentally as thing which are Invisible and In
sensible to our phyelcal sense, w ahould know
nothing about molecule, atoma and electrons. The
electron, which are the smallest known particles of
what w call matter, hare been estimated to b only
ona twenty-mllllon-mllMonth of an Inch tn diameter,
which la mora than 600 time less than the minute
pace of which w formed a mental picture In the
calculation mad above. On the other hand, the
diameter of a hydrogen molecule la probably about 600
times greater than that apace.
There la nothing that the Imagination cannot do.
It leads science at every step. Often It seems to lead
astray, and when Its pictures of possibilities contra
dict what w already know we must reject them until
further knowledge settles the queatlon. In their
mind's eye certain men of science foresaw the di
vision ot the atom Into atlll smaller particle long
before a practical demonstration waa obtained of the
actual existence of those smaller particles, now
called electrons. That waa a case in which the Imag
ination did not lead aatray. It Is not difficult to
Imagine the electron again divided Into something
mailer yet, but science will speak of such division
only when. If ever. It has a demonstration of It. As
an exercise in tha use of Imagination, suppose we
tak a look through the mind's telescope from the
wrong end. Tou know that It you look at a hou.?e
through a apy-glasa. or opera-a-lnss, reversed, the ob
ject aeems to have been greatly diminished In sice
and to have been removed to a corresponding distance.
Now, It la eaay, In the mind, to treat the whole earth
the same way. Increase of actual distance haa the
earn effect on alae that Is produced by increase of
apparent distance.
The earth Is 8,000 miles In diameter, and living on
Ita surface we cannot see It as a whole. But If we
went to the moon we could see the earth aa a ball
nearly four time a great In diameter aa the full
moon now appears to ua Going twice as far the
earth would have the same apparent als a the
moon. Now, an electron, the smallest known thing
haa a diameter of one ,000.000,000,000th of an Inch;
how far would w have to go in order that the ap
parent site of the earth (it we could see it at til.
which of oour we couldn't), should be no greater than
that of an electron on foot awayT There I no need
to display the calculation here; It suffice to give the
result. The distance would be over 1,900 quadrillion
of miles, or away beyond the known limits of the
tarry universal And yet, though th earth were at
that tremendous Alatano, and hopelessly invisible, the
imagination could aee It perfectly well, and Just so
the imagination can the electron, when one as
sured of ita existence.
