Tha commonly accepted theory of the pur

Tbe proposal to tai cata haa much merit.

The leglalature of New York passed a bill
making the manufacture, aale or poaecitelon of
a firearm allencer a felony. Unauthorised poa
aeaalon of flrearma la already a misdemeanor,
tut the difficulty of enforcement baa made It
a dead letter. Better reaulta ara poaalble with
the allencer law, Inasmuch aa It rearhea the
manufacture and aale of a device which con

Thirty Years Ago
This Day in Omaha
Hughes the Beal Choice.
No one in touch with the political pulneif
Nebraska double for a moment that Char lea E.
Hughes la the real choice of an overwhelming
n ajority of the republicans of this state. It la
enly a question whether the republicans who
v'nt Hughe ran be sufficiently Impressed with
the necessity of "writing In" his name In the
ballot and shown how to do it without forget
ting (o put the cross mark In the square oppo
t.;it the written name, In a word, each of tha
(fher candidates wbo hope to secure the presi
dential preference vote In Nebraska Is relying
nolely upon the advantage he enjoys by having
bit' name printed on the ballot, and the me
chanical ease of putting a cross mark opposite
a printed name as against the onerous task of
writing (he name in,
A Beatrice puper lest week suggested that
the presidential preference section of the bal
lot, if we are to keep It In the primary, should
consist of nothing but a blank line requiring
every voter to write in the name of his choice
if he has one. If this condition now prevailed,
it Is plain that no other candidate would be In
the running In Nebraska except Charles K.
Hughes. Ho, write In the name and don't forgwt
the cross In the square,
Richard Harding' Davis,
The sudden death of Richard Harding Davis
at his New York home has removed an unique
figure from the world of contemporary Journal
Irm. Mr. Davis had attained to some distinc
tion as a novelist and as a dramatist, but
through It all he was essentially a newspaper
msn. His earlier ventures Into fiction were
largely based on experiences In newspaper of
fices, and were, pertiaps, hli "host sellers." At
any rate, he never excelled tbem In point of In
terest, although much of his later work waa on
more ambitious lines, Aa a war correspondent
be csme Into much prominence In connection
with the short-lived Oraeco-Turklsh campaign,
and with the Hpanlsh-Amerlcan war. Ha waa
at tha front when tbe Japanese and Russians
were at close grips, and then went through the
conflict between the Balkan Allies and the
Turka, When the war cloud burst over Europe,
"Dicky"- Davis waa on tbe crest of tba German
wave, and for hla enterprise all but faced a
firing aqmd "somewhere In France," actually
having been sentenced to death. His work waa
not monumental, but It was serviceable, as a
"passing brief chronicle of the time." and
American periodical literature will miss much
of lit picturesque quality because Richard Hard
Irg Dav!,i Is no longer writing.
The Reactionary DemocrtU.
Bourbonism appear to ho well entrenched
In the l'nlied Btates annate under democratic
control, The reactionary tendency of that body
Is Its most notable characteristic Just at pres
ent. The vote on the measure to restore the
tariff on sugar la an example of Its practice.
The need for this change In the tariff law la
admitted by even the most confirmed of free
traders, for the treasury, depicted by th reck
less extravagance of the party In power, must
hare tbe revenue the sugar tariff will produce.
But the senate adopted a substitute that will
defat the purpose of the house resolution, and
throw tha matter Into conference, In wbirh
delay may result In further loss to tbe treas
ury, Nothing la to be gained by the action of
the senate, except the delay, and for what pur
pose the action Is to be put off Is beyond con
jecture. Many Interesting and some vitally !m
rortant measures are being held up In the sen
ate, among them the Keating child labor bill,
and the resolution providing for printing the
report of the Industrial Relatione commission.
The democrats are putting to sleep progressive
measures, while carrying on a sham battle
against the "Intercuts," hut tbey are deluding
themselves If they think the people are not
watching their course.
Nebraika'i Compensation Law.
The deputy labor commissioner'! report on
the first year's operations of the Nebraska
Workmen's compensation law dlsclosea many
Interesting facts. First of all, It dlsclosea that
Industrial accldcnta In Nebraska are far more
common than bad been supposed, the total of
more than 2,600 Indicating between eight and
nine mishaps a day sufficiently serious to war
rent attention under the law. More than
136,000 waa paid under the direction of the
lew, for compensation, and cost of caring for
the Injured, proving tbe Importance of the law
as a relief measure. Experience baa shown
tlat the Ihw neod some changes to make Its
workings more effective, This Is not surpris
ing, when the circumstances under which It
was enacted are recalled. It was a patchwork
creation, pushed through the legislature at the
lnet moment In reluctant redemption of prom
I sea made In platforms, It still haa the oppo
sition of the ambulance chasers, ho nearly
thwarted Its adoption and later secured Its be
km acnt to tha referendum for endorsement.

An die situation aland lodar. Chart K. Hugh I
aa good aa nomlfiatt 4. This I th conclusion of om
of tha wlaeat tulriila In Washington, and It is born of
by the payt'hology of the ciluatlon, Th current aum
iredton that " don't know whr Kugha tnd''
cult very Utile figure her In Washington, wher tr
ra'ord of Justie Hushes haa been oonnd over with
nilcrosoope snd bn found t vry point to laatlfjr
of virility and wisdom, The r th ct opposite
of waaknaaa and Ignorant, which ar among lit Injur
ing ijuallllea of the administration tha republican
candidate will b called on to oppose, The charge that
Judtli e I lih a la "not a good party man" becaua ha
fought William Hemes, Jr., In Nw Tor I about
ridiculous accusing him of being an Infidel ha
caua ha I memher of th ftaptlat church, Mr,

flea a boaalern In th republican parly which Hugh
fouaht and whl'h rnuat b altmlnated If rrpuhllcasi
candidates ar to cotrunand the support of p'o
greaalve. In Whlnton at laaat belief In lb final
trlumi'h of tha Hugh force In th convention Is
an. ruinated by th democratic 'pralnns of delight
on vcry hand over th mnalaaanc of Roosevelt seritl
rtiaift. To b frank and lirutal about it, th demo
crat aay they hope ftonaevelt will b nominated, a
th hallev ha would l lh leat man to beat. They
fr Ifughaa wmild sweep th country Ilk a whirl
wind. Sentiment of Middle Weal.
Henry J, Allen, In Colllet's: If, was felt that
Hughe I th moat available, li waa not Involved In
th factional ouarrel. II ha ld nothing to anger
th hyphenated cltlran, Th laat tlm h appred
upon th political horlron a governor of New Tnrk
ha seemed to be performing with rilatlngulabad ability,
Thar I still om tllactnalon a (o tha propriety of
bis leaving Ihe ben'h, but men no longer K If ha
would take the nomination. It I felt tha,t ha M
nilaaed too many good chu ea lo aay no, 'to leave any
uncertainty upon that point, Tbey are taking today
wht kind of a president be would wak. Two month
ago you could not get up an argument anywhere on
that subject, The entire cotilrovcray waa on th ques
tion as to whether be would accept th nomination.
At M.t hour It waa his by popular cldnor. Now b
I helnu compared with Hooaavelt on th merit of
th situation tliey affect the nation's need at en
hour when Ihe national life I menaced.
This unexpected development "f th lt.uttrm Is too
new to render prophecy timely, Th r illment Is per
fecting Itaelf snd I believe It will be eeveral weak be
fore It ha reached II final statu In this section.
This gnat ttilna ha com Into the situation out
here; there I deep nd honeat dealr on th prt
of probably a majority of th stsndpat leder to
nominal the man at, C.hhug t who wilt make th beat
prnalrlent. 'I her will he dlaciiHlons between th
partisans of Hushes snd Roosevelt a a matter of
comae, but It 1 believed her that ther will b no
big fight In th Chicago convention over tha presi
dent's! nomination. It will go eithar lo Roosevelt or
to Hugho. If we hv wr In Mexico or serious Inter
niitloutil difficulty elaewhr, th probability that II
will go lo Itonaevelt will he tremandoiialy Increased,
Tcday a vol In th middle weal would doubtlea glv
Mr, Hughe a majority of th actlv republicans,
Oro In Slrenath of Ilaghea.
New York Kvenlng I'oat: W my ha mighty cer
tain that all the progtesalv effort to craat doubt
and auaplnlnna In regard to Hughe ar due to th
fact that his candidacy Is n to h growing In favor.
If he were only a rernot poaalbfllty at Chicago, th
cobnel would not wait a dart upon him. H tit if
Hughe present himself lo Increasing nuinlur of r
publicans in all parts of tha country a th man whn
bids fairest at one to unit the party and to win
tit election, then, of oourie, aomnthlng haa to b don
hoot It, He must b dlarrndlted and gut out of iho

either Turkish or progreaalve nutans. Meanwhile, i
ta Interesting to not th ronenau of th Washington

Hughe Is not to he driven from his sllenc or ahakiiti

OXPOflu, Nb April 12,-To the Kd
ltr of Tha hm: I had the plraur re
cently to hear Mr. Bryan deliver hi
much adverlld prohibition lecture, Uk
all Mr, Itryan'a talks it wa Interesting
for It fin delivery, for It rlcjineas In
appeal to prejudlc and sympathy, and
for Us dearth of any useful Information
Imparted to his audience. t
While It had been advertised to d
vane th caua of the prohibition amend
ment It proved lo ha nothing but a po
litical tirade. A when , hunting wild
geean year Ago In Wisconsin I used a
hora to dacalv th gs and get clo
lo th flock, so Mr, Bryan u prohibi
tion a a screen to his real purpna and
to get near to th people, Hi vole at
time wa aurcharged with rhlldleh aplla,
when h referred to fenator Hitchcock,
and when h wa clearing tha path of
Hrothcr Charley to (lis en ecu live tna.it
Inn, of t'andliiut Neville, th golden
rule leemrd to h forgot tan, No pledge
of loyalty lo the constitution, no promise
of strict law-enforcement waa to b ao
ceptcd or believed coming from any other
candidal than Hrothcr Charley.
In appealing for upport a a delegate
to Ihe national convention Mr. Bryan
aald one could Judge of hla an priori to
th prealdent from the facta (hat he gave
upport in WIS, aat for over two yeara al
Ills right hand In the cabinet, and that
l.OoO year bene their names would bo
linked together on th pe of hlatory.
It I hard to ace any proof here, eape
clitlly the lil nt ft y eplaoite, a Villa's tiMtie
might accldctiUlly appeal' ou the aamn
Page. Although loyal, h wanted It
known that Wllnon'a preaent forelun di
plomacy its harah and wrong, hla aland
that our neutral right ahnuld ba main

elude he la owned by th breweries: Mr
Bryan mad It plain that should prohibi
tion carry and Brother Charley be elected
that the glory ehould go to tha democratic t
party, and be Intimated that be would
not mourn If iiima of th wet democrat
went over to the republican. He never :
aald a word about having mad an align
ment with Jim I'ahlman to look after
th wet vote, nor did be have a word of
Praia for any republican candidnle, no
matter how atrong he might b for pro
hibition, in other word, prohibition waa
good, but Hrother Charley waa halter.
Mr. Bryan wa just aa Inconaiatenl
when lis apok of national pr paredn.
He would aliollah the navy, but be com
mended tha ua of th navy at Vera t'ru.
II would wlp out the army, but heartily
commended th president for aendlug Ihe
army Into Meslco. Thus who favored
preparedness wcr held up a either dupe
or In th employ of th munition facto
ries, yet h wished hi audience I"
I lo vat ha wa de.slrou of seeing tbe preal
dent elected. Mad any other man recited
Mr. Ilryeti lecture without th baem
of on "Jot or tittle," few would have
remained to bnr the end. Thus adver
tising I proved to be a power both for
good and for evil. A. . HANK IN.
