The American Mood.
The American mood Is plainly against be
coming embroiled In the maelstrom of Euro
rean warfare If It can possibly be avoided with
honor. From the outset, our people have taken
the position that this Is not our fight and that
the question of the balance of power In Europe
affects us, only Indirectly. Our people, it Is
true, were stunned by the sudden outbreak of
the war sudden, at least In the sense of being
wholly unexpected by us but the outrages
perpetrated in defiance of the Ibws of nations,
vhile st first evoking a keen resentment, have,
cf;me by repetition, to be taken almost as mat
ter of course. This may be due to a gradual
dulling of the senses as affected by war, or to
sn exsggerated confidence in our own security,
rr to a growing Indifferenre to the rights of
humanity as distinguished from our own safety
whatever the cause, and whether we believe
It regretable or not, we may as well recognise
the existence of the conditions ss explaining
vhy, In what seems to be the most critical mo
ment of all, the American people as a whole
s'mply refuse to become alarmed.
The American mood Is apparently to "worry
long," confiding In "manifest destiny' and de
pending upon a continuance of American good
luck. Our fervent prayer iiiist be that this good
luck may not turn, for, If jt should, our woeful
siete of unprepsredness would be a terrific In
dictment of our recklessness,
An Irresistible Conclusion.
Nearly two-thirds of the republican news
papers In, Nebraska, sensing the sentiment of
their respective communities, voiced the con
viction during the preliminary primary cam
paign that, with Charles E. Hughes as the psrty
standard bearer, the complete reunion of the
elements would be sure and republican success
in state and nation made certain.
So far as anyone can see, the result of the
primary ha not. changed this situation, and
while the magnitude of tbe task of "writing
in" a name on the ballot prevented Hughee
ficm polling the plurality of the votes, the neck-snd-neek
race of Ford, and Cummins, facilitated
b having their names printed on the ballot,
fells to show any decisive demand for either
cf them above Hughes. This interpretation is
reinforced by the fact tbst the moBt outspoken
Hughes man, running for delegate-af-large,
scores several thousand more votes than his
ntxt nearest competitor and that a Kood ma
jority of all the delegates chosen to represent
Nebraska at Chicago bad annoiinced their per
snnal preference to be for Hughes, ,
No one can weigh these different factors
Impartially without, reaching the conclusion
that the rank and file of the republicans In Ne
braska, all elements of them, would like, after
the favorite sons have enjoyed their rompll
tuents, to help nominate Charlea E. Hughes.
President Wilson as a Candidate.
In his Jefferson day speech Mr, Wilson for
the nonce assumed the character of a candidate,
seeking support for hi second term nomina
tion, and with aucb adroitness as to suggest
careful preparation fo( tbe role. Ills studious
avoidance of real issues, and his deliberate em
phasis of Inconsequential mark him a the ex
perienced politician, pretending frankness and
practicing duplicity. Grave questions of Inter
national relations were touched upon gingerly,
while the president modestly claimed to have
aolved tfie economic and social problem of the
country through legislation euacted since he
came into office. Thl challenge to criticism
will be'met In detail, as time goes on, but it
will be a difficult choice to select one point in
his armor and say It is the most vulnerable, so
full of boles Is his covering.
The one-term plank of the Baltimore plat-
fcrm will be an awkward thing; no matter why
that plank was adopted, the president stood
pledged to it until nearly two year after his
election. Tbe banking law ot which be boasts
a the foundation for the present day prosperity
Ir. but the Aldrlch bill slightly modified, and
yet la open to all the criticism so vehemently
urged against It by the democrat.!, with the
addition of the sectional favoritism shown by
the administration In locating the reserve
banks. The free trade policy of the party, tra
ditional from the time of Jefferson, who was
committed to an agricultural and not a nisnu
factlng nation, has been abandoned by the presi
dent since the passage of the Underwood bill
with disastrous results, and the republican doc
trine of protection Is being adopted piecemeal.
Efforts tu provide defense for the nation have
been and are being nullified by the president's
adherents In and out of conirens, while the ad
ministration's foreign policy has been one of
consistent wsbhllng.
The whole story of President Wilson's
three yeais In office Is one of rontMly shift
ing views and (hanging attitudes, Ills single
track mind Is alwavs at work; the trouble being
lie doean t know uli h wav It Is turnlug.

A VAST nurtilx-r of people ride In aiitoinobllrs now
il adays, and probably Iras than on In a thouaand
of them would cat, to be told how the man
leal machine got Its power. They ore content with
being whirled away ea myaterloualy aa the old woman
on her broomatlrK. The delight of the experience l
enough; the explanation would be a boie. Ho moat
of the several bundled million pasaennera on ths
epeeilln: earth are Intereated only in seeing the stars
fly by, and care nothing shout the marvelous ma
chlnerjr of the snclvnt car that carries them or about
the eource of the electric banners that It flings out
as it daahes along the endleaa roads of spare. "How
smooth she goes, and what a eeneatlon we must bs
There la resenn to believe that at Mat half of the
entire bulk of the earth conalets of Iron. Ieep In the
Interior of the globe (here Is probably a great core of
rnetalllo Iron, lute rmlnxlcd with other heavy metals.
Hlnre we know that Iron Is the most readily magnet
ised of sll subatsncea, and alnce we find ores of Iron
which are natural magnets, we see the structure of
the earth Itaelf one of the resaona why It has become
a gigantic umgnet, with two oppoaed polea, such ss
sll magnets have.
t think that the ultimate source of the earth's mag
nttlem Is In the sun, Torrents of electrons pass front
the excited surface of the sun out Into space on sll
slilca, and the earth receives ta share of theee, as of
the solsr light snd heat.
At (lines ew'll outbursts of solar energy send
electric chargea of 'uncommon Inlenalty to the earth,
snd then the latter vlalbly responds with the wsvlnii
curtains of the polar lights, snd with "msgnetlo
Thus, In a sense, lbs earth la enveloped with an
electric field originated by the sun, and, routing
within that field,' Its huge globe, so largely composed
of pure Iron, heroines magnetized, tint this Is only a
genersl stslement of the manner In which the esrllt
has been magnetically ciiaiged,
Jloma of the probable details are Indicated In Prof,
tfyhanns Thompson's suggestion that the evaporation
In the tropica rauaea the aacendlng currents of heated
air to be positively electrified, and thst, ss they travel
northward and aoulhwsrd until they deacend In tb
polar regions, they act like electric currents,, within
which the earth Is rotstlng.
Prof, Thompson hss for msny years upheld the
view thst "this thermodynamic production of polur
currents, In conjunction with the earth's diurnal rota
tion, afford the only rational means yet suggested
for accounting for the growlh of the earth's msg
netlam to Ita preannt state."
In fact, It would be aet.onlnhlng If the earth were
not magnetised. In the presence of the sun it Is Ilka
a watch In the neighborhood of a dynatno. It Is likely
thst sll the planets sre msgneta, and particularly
those thst are nearer the sun than the earth la, vis.,
Venus and Mercury,; If Venus, now so brilliant In the'
evening sky, should drift cloee to our planet, I should
expect (disregarding the effects of gravitation) to see
the two behave like a pair of magnetised balla float
ing on water. If they approached, with similar poles
In advance they would repel one another, but If with
opposite polea confronted the encounter would rer.
talnly end In a magnetic klas. , ,
If w could lift off the cover of the earth-engine
we might find out why Its magnetic elements art so
strangely variable, When words are used accurately
there la nothing mora misleading than to ssy that tha
magnetic needle points north. At New York It point
st present nearly ten degrees west of north, st Denver
about fifteen degrees esst of north; only along an ex
tremely crooked line running from rharleaton, B. C,
to the notthern end of Lak Michigan does the needle
point tru north. ' (
At liondon the need) points about sixteen degree,
west of north;, 'but 200 years ago IC pointed exactly
north, and about 130 years before that It pointed eleven
degrees east of north. For some unexplained reason
there is a stow swing, eastwsrd snd westward. In the
direction of the magnetic meridians of the earth, oc
cupying about 6) years for each double vibration.
At the same tlms the position of the poles of mag
net lem appears to change In the earth, and In the
same latitude the needle dips mors st one time thsn st
another. At the magnetic poles, which sr fsr from
the geographic poles, the needle stands upright, show

OMAHA, April 22,-To the f.dltor of The
Bee: I have been asknd by a man who
signed his communication "An Kx-Tar"
to snawer the mud-slinging article by
B. M. Collins on "Whst Mewey lUd."
It Is true thst the fleet Hewev le
stroyed was composed of mere tubs, but
that waa the smallest purt of bis ac
complishment. When wsr broke out ha
wss without coal. He got It when nine
men out of ten would probably hne
failed. He moved and acted so quickly
thst he was in Manila bay long befum
the Spaniards thought tt was possible for
him to srrlve, snd took them unawares,
which fai t had a great d'-al to do with
his clean victory. He passed the fortl
fled Island of f'orregldor and over the
submarine mines unnoticed snd sccom
pllshefl his purpose without the loss of a
man. After destroying the fleet his Job
wa not yet done. Without ammunition
ha upheld the honor and dignity of the
Cnlted htstes against the hoetlle Her
man fleet. In all, his service during the
Hpanlsh war wss brilliant. His greatest
lemsrd came from a cool, level-headed
congress, and consisted of their vote of
thanks snd advancement in rank to thst
of admiral of the navy. Whether or
not he was shabbily treated, I cannot
say. The service ho gsv the United
Wales waS. however, far more thsn
could be repaid in money.
Alud-sllnglng Is not so detestable when
men confine it to men, but this person
sttacks a good woman, tha wife of a
prominent official. In all probability be
has never seen the wife of our admiral,
snd It It certain thst be dne not know
her history. In deeding tha property
presented to him by sn sppreclatlv
people, the admiral made a practical
move, and the dearer the present wss to
him, the greater the present wss to his
wife. At that, the house belongs to both
of them.
Hero worshipping msy be wrong. 1
havs never thought so. But hero hating
through a Jealousy I cannot understand,
la much worse It Is abnomlnable.
Title Is not written with the Intention
of becoming Involved In a controversy,
for I will not argue with a person who
sttsrks a good woman in public or else
where, but It Is written becsuse my
friend, the Ex-Tar, requested It.
vlf Women "Were Soldiers.
OMAHA. April B.To the Kdltor of
Tli Bee: The American Women's League
for Defense voted several daya ago to
Wear trousers In tlm of wsr. The desr
,women sre drilling and getting patriotic
and preparing to be of service when Jingo
sotlvlty shsll have driven the country
into wholesale slaughter.
They do not propose to ftsfht They
will drill and strut around In mala atlre
and stay at home presumably to bring
forth sons to carry on th work of de
struction In th future. To be Ilk sol
diers, however, they would not stop st
this. To be real "defenders of th Isnd
of the free," they ought to do mor. They
should go to th front, burn and destroy,
malm and kill, and those surviving go
home, covered with glory, foul with dis
ease and filled with contempt for honest
labor snd lsborers.
If these women expect to be like sol
diers, they must expect to desoend to
the lowest depths of cruelty and shame
and aufferlng; to purge from their hearts
every fooling of pity; to commit any
crime, no matter how black, If It be In
the name of law and order and lov of
The picture Is not ovrrdrswn. Their

EXETER, Neb., April xl.-To the Editor
of The Bee: I notlc that Secretary Pool
has gathered his brains 'Into tnsssed for
mation and "decided" that an individual
voter cannot write In the, nam of the
candidate of another party on th blank
space on th primary ballot provided for
that purpose snd hav the vote counted.
I can hardly think that Secretary Pool
could have made the Idiotic dectelon thst
the newspapers attribute to him, or In
fsct thst he would be foolish enough to
make sny decision st stl In mstters en
tirely outside of his Jurisdiction.
The lew asys thst the secretary of state
has control of the preperstlon snd print
ing of the ballots, lis Is simply a clerical
officer, not In a eenee a Judicial one, and
his decision in mstters outside of those
which the lew puts under his lmmedlste
control ts Just ss valuable as that of my.
self or Robert a. Rosa of Lexington, who
is generally considered the champion Idiot
In the stste. A "decision'' to the effect
thst a voter haa not the right to write In
any name which he rhosea In the blsnk
space on the osllot provided for thst pur
pose snd have his vote counted, Is sssi
nine and would not stand two minutes In
a court of law or common aense.
The supreme court declalon tiled In sup
port of Mr. Pool s views hss reference
enly to the details of the bsllot work and
does not In sny wsy define the rights of
the individual voter. For Inatsnee. sup
