German Chancellor Holds Being.
Chancellor von Btbmann-HoUwe, appar

first seat In the Oerman imperial cabinet On
the contrary, be haa again shown hla fitness
for the Important place be holds by cleverly
circumventing the politicians who have opposed
Lis policy, and is yet firm In hla seat, with the
rdns of the government well In band. Tor
many montha before the war. Ton Bethmann
Hollweg waa asnalled by opponent of the
policy outlined by the emperor and pat Into
cporatlon by the cabinet Since actlvltiea In
the field have been under way, this opposition
has been strengthened by the addition of an
other element, made up of those who do not
endorse what they term the extreme mildness
of the chancellor In dealing with the political
and economio situation.
The retirement of von Tirplta was a distinct
shock to this faction, and brought a show of
activity that for a moment seemed serious
enough to actually threaten the continuity of
the cabinet These extremists were joined by
tho ultras on the other end, and a union of fac
tions that might have been disastrous for the
ministry seemed possible. But the incongruity
of these Interests operated to prevent a coali
tion sufficiently firm to establish the expected
revolt, and the chancellor, by the simple ex
pedient of avoiding an interpellation and per
mitting the Introduction of a resolution, haa
avoided open discussion in the Reichstag of
qutstions that would certainly produce Inter
nal disturbance In the empire. He win con

tremes o peace and war, and thue adda to hlf

Germany has been fortunate In having a
man of von Bethmann-Hollweg'a ability In this
all-important position during the critical period
of the war. Ills real trial Is to come, when tbf
terms of peace are to be fixed, but hla manage

to secure German Interests in any negotiation.
Back to the Starting Point.
After a bewildering succession of proposal
nd counter-proposals, the city commissioners
have turned down all street lighting proposi
tions, and are back where they started. The
real trouble, aa we see it. la that the city
authorities do not know what they want to do,
or whether they want to do anything at all In
the matter of street Illumination.
Assuming some Improvement of present
conditions is desired, we renew our suggestion,
made aome time ago, that the proper proceed
ing for the city is to formulate its own proposi
tion and invite the lighting company, or com
panies, to fix a price, or say "Yes" or "No."
proposition so formulated, regardless of
both the pleasure of the lighting company and
the ambltiona of the Water Board management.

. Clash of the Colonel.
Lincoln has Just undergone a collision of
colonels that makes the thirty-day bombard
ment at Verdun seem tame in comparison.
Two doughty warriors, oue a master of the
deadly typewriter, the other unequalled la use
or verbal missiles, met in furious onslaught,
and the result is too ghastly to contemplate.
Colonel Maher showed the courage of his clan
by entering a trial In which he waa clearlv
overmatched and at a disadvantage because of
being deprived of hla favorite weapon. He is
entitled, however, to something in the way of
laurels for having engaged Colonel Bryan with
toe naked mouths and certainly did acquit him
self well for one who is accustomed to nnur
blistering volleys from a high-geared self-starting
typewriter. Colonel Bryan, more at ease be
cause of hla great familiarity with the atrstAcrv
of the Jaw-bone, emerged with flying colors

ported to have ceased firing onlv bnran he
had exhausted his ammunition. The battle la
not ended, although It la not at all likely these
eminent democrats will again auts at
close quarters. Surprise attacks are not leaders
in tneir atrategy. They will be heard from in
the long range warfare that ia now und. w.
and the auspicious opening of the democratic
primary campaign certainly does promise
much that will be of Interest before the vote
Duty of Eailroad Man Defined.
From the supreme court of the United
Statea has Just come a decision that more
clearly than ever define the duty of railroad
men. A flagman had been killed as a result
of a rear-end collision which might have been
averted, had he attended to his duty. In hold
ing that hla estate is not entitled to recovei
damages from the railroad, the supreme court
lays down a rule that will affect all railroad
men, and especially those engaged in train
movements. It Is held that In the performance
ot their duties, they are responsible to the ut
most for the safety of passengers and property
entrusted to their care. If mishap followa aa
a result of failure, the negligent employe can
not claim Tor himself compensation for an in
Jury he may auffer. Thla Is not entirely a re
vival of the defense of contributory negligence,
but Is a more strict Interpretation or the rule
of duty, more clearly defining the responslbil-
Ity of railroad men. Its Importance will be
clearly understood by them, and Its application
win mean atlll greater aafety In travel.
Two thousand ahlps, aggregating 1.000.0

It la not in Nebraska only that republicans
regard Justice Hughes as the one man above
all others to unite the party. It is the same all
over the country, but Nebraska Is the only
state where the preferential ballot is open wide
to let the voter write In his real choice and
make it effective.
FrtetMl HmtliHd: The more Justice Hughe protests
that be doe not desire to become a candidate for the
office of president of theoe I'nlted State the more
Nebraska repabllcsuvs desire hint to fill that moat im
portant office. We do not take It that Juatloe Hughes'
name will be printed on the primary tickets In this
state, but there will be a blank Un left among the
Hat of presidential candidates and every voter whe
prefers Justice) Hughes should writs Charles B.
Hughes on that line and pUo an X tn the square
opposite the name. This would bring Judge Ho ghee
before th convention In June Just aa prominently
as thongh hla name was printed on the primary bal
lots. When Justice Hughes ascertains that th re
publicans of these United Statea desire him for that
position be is patriotic enough to aorept th posi
tion. He la th on man among all th candidates
proposed who oan be elected next falL
Boston Transcript: Th result in New Hampshire
will probably be duplicated In every on of th New
England states. Two of the delegates today favo-
the nomination' of Mr. Weeks and Intend to vote for
him on th first ballot. Th six other delegates are
uncommitted and several of them are personal friends
of Mr. McCall. Seven of th delegates are said to be
ready to Join a stampede for Hughes If th sentiment
for his nomination In ths west is reflected tn the
delegates who are elected to represent that section
at Chicago. New England republicans as a whole are
much more concerned about the triumph of the cause
than they are about th auccess of any individual
candidate. They hope to see Mr. Roosevelt and Mr.
Root campaigning the country together In support of
the ticket if Mr. Hughes Is nominated.
Albion News: It seems thst all factions of th re
publican party are pretty generally satisfied to take
Judge Hughes as a csndldats for president This
Is a great compliment to this gentleman In view of
the radical differences existing In regard to many
policies of government.
Ralph E. Williams, Republican National Committee
man From Oregon. In Chicago Tribune: If Hughes
would aay he would accept I believe he would be
nominated almost unanimously. He may be nomi
nated whether he aaya the word or not If nomi
nated he will be elected with a record vote.
Bloomtngton Advocate: The Omaha Bee, who la an
anthualaatio supporter of Judge Hughes for president.
Is advising the voters to write his name on the pri
mary ballot. This Is all right, but not much will eome
from It because so few people will take time to write
In the name when they go to vote. A good many

gentleman to mean what he says when he Intimated
that he waa not a candidate- W believe, however,
that th able Judge would corns nearer satisfying

Burton J. Hendrlck In Minneapolis Journal:
Hughes possesses two great advantages. Nearly all
the party leaders have slready announced their readi
ness to support him. More Important Is the steadily
growing popular movement for Hughes. Justice
Hughes meets every teat of political availability. But
the discussion ends, aa It began, with the query: Will
he take the nomination? Hughea and Wilson that
certainly would be a treat for our somewhat Jaded
political appetites. It would be a purely moral and
Intellectual contest. There would be no personal maul
ings. such as we' have sometimes had. The contest,
with thoae two men as candidates, would reach a
height of dignity and decency without parallel In

The primary system haa not improved

it Is apt to be that way as long aa the

The members of ths election boards will
havs a hugs task before them on April

ef national delegates, electors, state of
ficers and others that will make the list
at least 8u far us to sount, and I think
It will be mere than that number..
When tiie legislature was in sesaioR laat
feat i suggested that election boards be
enlarged somewhat by adding to the
number a subdivision of the election
board whs would g en duty at noon of

In that way it would make the work of
the election boards much shorter snd
would add te th accuracy of the canvass

names to count April II It Is doubtful If
any of the election boards will get through
before noon of April 19, even by counting
all night and all of Wednesday forenoon.
If we are atlll to be burdened with the
obnoxious primary system which falls to
lmprovs with age. It Is to be hoped that
the next legislature will have a returning
board added to the election board so that
the count can be finished In a reasonable
When there are so many candidates ta

ingman a chance te go and vote without
loalng time or pay, and for that reason
ther Is no necessity of having ths pells
open so long in the evening.
In th past ths legislature has bungled
up th election laws worse each time It
meets. It is to be hoped that some effi
