The Moral Obligation.
Thg attorney general of Michtgan ha said that
under Ita presidential prefarence primary law tho foiir
flelegatea-at-large are morally bound by tha general
result of the primary, whlla the dlalnct dele. ai
bound by the reaulu in their atatriuta. I'nder thla
ruling Henry ford would get eighteen of the irate a
deleKatea and William Alden Kmith twelve. Ford won
In the atate hy a majority of 6,15 and carried aeven
dlatrlctg to flte for Smith. -Hpringfield Republiran.
In this reopect the Nebraska presidential
preference primary law is exactly the same as
that of Michigan and. by tbe same ruling, Henry
Ford, although "nosed out" by Cummins In the
state, Is entitled to the votes of the two dele
gates from this congressional district in which
he leads, with Hughes second and Cummins
only third. The rule of the republican national
convention make the district te unit 'or dis
trict delegates and the state tbe unit for dele-rateg-at-large,
go that if tbe delegate is morally
bound by the preferential vote the obligation Is
to bis own constituency. If be wants tc respect
the preference vote, the wishes of bis district
cannot be overridden by the preference of
voterg In other districts of the state for someone
else, any more than by the preference of the
voters of some other state. Tbe two delegates
from this Second Nebraska district, therefore,
rightly belong in the Ford column until they
are ready to vote for their own real choice. For
them to start with Cummins Instead of Ford
would be as much a repudiation of their "moral
obligation" as It would be for the delegates-at-Isrge
to start with Ford instead of Cummins.
Another Centennial Anniversary.
Tbe American Bible society yesterday cele
brated Its centennial anniversary by special
observation In most of the churches, and with
pretentious demonstrations In Washington,
Philadelphia and New York. From a very
bumble, almost Insignificant start In 1816 the
work of tbli organization has grown, until it
Is on of the most extensive publishing houses
In the world, and by far tbe largest tbat deals
only with a single work. It bas translated the
Bible, or portions of It, Into practically every
known language, dialect or Idiom, and bas cir
culated the sscred volume In every accessible
quarter of the globe. No other publisher
pushes his business with the unremitting xeal
that has been characteristic of the American
Bible society. Its Importance Is admitted, be
cause It has been a factor in the advance of
civilization, and It would be a bold man who
would undertake to say to what extent tbe
world is made fetter by the work of this society,
which has placed the Book of Books w'thln the
reach of all. It Is only three centuries since a
king of Rngland gave to his people a version J
of the Bible that all might read, and thus Im
mortalized bis name. But bla work bad been
far less fruitful were It not for aha American
Bible society, now entering on tbe aecond cen
tury of its great work, Ita founders will not
be so readily recalled by the popular mind aa
is King James, but their work has been ihe
more productive, because tbey have made his
of service to mankind everywhere.
Sew Army Bill Held Up,
The anticipated disagreement between the
conferees over the new army bill has occurred.
The house declines to recede from Its position
on (be federsl volunteer force, holding out for
Ihe Notional Guard as It Is now organized. And
back of all this will be found the miserable
politics that has prevented the formation of an
efficient military force, either state or national,
despite the money that has been lavished dn the
establishment. So long as service Is voluntary,
It doesn't much matter to the young man who
goes Into Ihe ranks from conscientious motives,
or through the spirit of adventure, whether he
Is under state or national control, if he la as
sured of fair treatment. Nor does It greatly
concern the studious, earnest men who make
up the personnel of the line officers, whether
their commissions are signed by the governor
of the state, or the president of the United
States. But It doeg matter to the politicians,
who have for years hampered tbe service by
their Interference. At this moment, hard
working and efficient officers of the Guard
feel that tbey have been Injured by the opera
tion of the political machinations that compli
cate the question of national defense. What
the thoughtful students of the problem desire
Is the merging of the forty-eight little state
armies into one organization of uniform quality
and merit. If this can be accomplished with
out destroying the distinctive attachment of
each little army to Its home state, all well and
good; It can not be accomplished so long as the
military forces of the I'nited States are the
playthings of politicians.
Political Cane Railing.
The Industry of cane raising in Louisiana Is
not limited to cultivated fields. It resrheg into
receptive political soil with results hardly Jus
tifying the eneigy expended. A epecimen of
tbe rrop raised in the latter way last year was
exhibited before the I'nited Ststes supreme
court recently, In the form of a Is requiring
the Amerlisn Sugar Kefiittng company to pay
as m u r b for Uniislans sugarcane as It pays for
like raw material In any market In Ihl country.

The Baa'a Ipaolal Oorraapondtnt.
I HAVE talked to fifty men from widely different
neotlona of tha country in the laat week and hava
found that the jentlment expressed In the Utrary
Dlgeat, aa to Mr. Justice Hughes, that he haa
preponderating bold upon the peopte of the I'nited
Batea, Is entirely correct. Tha Eat. which for
tlnni aeemed to be rather cold toward the aaeoHate
Jiiatlee, Is rapidly warming toward him, notwlthatand-
Ing tha rerent announcement made by friends of es
Senator Root of New York that headauartera in Chi
cago would ba opened In the very near futur and
that the Washington end of the Root campaign for
president would lie looked after by the Junior aenator
from New Tork, James W, Wadaworth, Jr.
There la undeniably a very pronouncad, a vary
healthy and a very ateady drift to Charles K. Hughes
and there will hava to be soma mighty strong mating
to' prevent hla nomination if the convention ts ss
aured of the Justice's acceptance of the tender at Chi
cago neat month. At heart the Virginia delegate
are for Hughe and Hi Maryland delegation will be
for Hughes, too, although in both Instance the dele
gate go unlnetructed, but not In a quarter of a cen
tury, certainly not In my time aa a correspondent
covering national conventiona will there assemble In
the city of Oilcago a more representative body of
American cltiien as the republican are sending as
their delegate to perform the very serious business
of naming a man who will be the next president of
the I'nited Htslea.
SJeeretary Redfleld of the ffepaitmene of Com
merce has Issued a general apr"al to the housewives
to save their old rag and old paper In order to cur
tail sa far as poaeible the shortage of paper which
Is becoming a very serloua problem. .
Thla destruction of old rsg snd old paper I only
one of the many Heme In whUh the American people
are waatefully extravagant. Not long ago I heard
a cigarette smoker sek an acquaintance to save the
tin foil In which cigarette ere wrapped and was ad
vised that periodically g rait would be made upon
him for such foil he might aave. "What do you
do with tt?" I saked snd he told me that the tin
foil gathered In the city of Washington was shipped
te Baltimore every month whore It Is sold for the
benefit of the tuberculosa hospital and those little
strip taken from cigarettes, chewing gum, candle
and tobacco, bring In a sufficient fund to support two
beds In that hospital. This aroused my curiosity and
after an Investigation I found that tin foil such as
described above brings about 25 cent a pound, on th
average. The tin foil wrapping of an ordinary pack
age of cigarettes weigh thirty grain and ss there
are 7,000 grslna to the pound 234 packsge are required
to produce 2t cents,
Tbe substitution of bronze for gold In picture
frame has bad a decided effect Upon the perquisites
of the men employed In the frame making Induatry
In thle city. Up to two yer sgo, according to the
proprietor Of one of the foremost art stores. It wss
tho custom In nil picture frame shop to carefully
save all the sweeping from the rooms In which a-old
leaf was laid upon frame. The sweepings were snt
periodically to Philadelphia, where they were refined
and the return amounted to aa much a S.1.Q0Q a year,
whliji were divided among the employe a extra com
pcmetlon. But gold leaf 1 out of date In frsme-maJc-
Ing now, th bronse and other finishing having
superceded the precious metal In th I respect. HI ill
the sign painter use gold leaf very largely and they,
too, conserve their sweeping for the benefit of their
employe, and every three month there 1 a "clean
up" day when the return from the refinement of
these sweeping are received and distributed among
Ihe sign painter. A conservative estimate Indicate
that the receipt from thl source run from 175,000 to
$100,000 each clean-up day for each sign shop In Wash
ington.
When ths new mint waa eatabtlahed In Denver th
wash basin In the gold room were all drained Intd
large vats or tank in the basement of the building.
There la a cerisin amount of abrasion connected with
tit, handling of virgin gold which results In th at
traction of fine partlclea of the metal to tho hands ot
tbe workers. When they wash their hande theae
particle are carried Into the vat referred to. The
washing are allowed to settle, then the water Is
drawn off and the aedlntent la dried and refined. The
refining Invariably result In the recovery of uf
flolent of tbe metal to make up any shortnge existing
between the original weight of the bullion and the
weight of the coin produced, Rut not only are th
washings refined, but all aprons snd cloths are periodi
cally burned snd the ahc refined with like results.
Pome year ago the iipcrintendent of a big pack
ing plant In Omaha discovered that the creek
running fmm the packing house Into the Missouri
river had been dammed up by some enterprising Indi
vidual whd waa found to be busily engaged In skim
ming the top of the water shove the dam each morn
ing. An investigation quietly carried on revealed th
fait that thla enterprising citizen waa skimming th
fat whic h floated on the top of the water each morn
ing and It waa eventually discovered that by thl
process he was cleaning up something Ilka 130,000 a
year. The superintendent thereupon decided that this
waste might be saved to his company and he therefore
Installed great vats in the basement of the building
Into which sit the washings from the floor were
drained and by thla mean the fnta were saved to a
very large extent and what had theretofore run Into
the sewer and thence into the MIshoutI river was
skimmed and a large amount of money waa saved to
the company. But in splto of all that could be don
the "gentleman of tbe dam" continued to maintain hi
plant and at last accounts he was atlll "cleaning up"
110,009 or il,oe a year, and no doubt there la half
as much more that escape even hie vigilance.
In Chicago several years ago another big packing
house found that It had In Ita glue works an enormous
amount of waste product, which whs the drainage
from the glue which waa dried Into sheets, and tt be
ram necensnry to discover some means hy which
this waata could be utlllied, ami, therefore, the super
intendent of the ptttnt tiled running It over onto
sheets of thick manila paper whith was subsequently
crinkled with sand and tha atmortiant quslltlea of
tie sand dried th slue which mould not solidify and
sand paper became on of the by prodmts nf thla
packing house. ItT, a the sand paper market

Tear-tag l Paved Street.
OMAHA, May .-To th Editor of The
Bee; When Twenty-fourth street wss
paved In eld Bouth Omaha It was the
pride of the whole city, for It waa on
of the beat paved (treat In thl part of
the country; but It had not more than
become settled when the process of tear
ing tt up began and it ha been kept up
more er lea ever since, and now the
climax, bas come when It la being torn
up from one end te the other by a public
service corporation.
It la about time we had some city en
gineer who would be tip to date and
devise some mean to prevent the tearing
up of streets as fast as they are paved,
for it 1 a well known fct that they ate
never reiald a well as they were laid in
the first place.
In some cities no pavement is permitted
te be torn up after it is laid, and it Is
about time something waa don In that
line In Omaha.
Th talk of a "City Beautiful" will not
avail much a long a th (treat are
constantly disfigured by bumps and holes
made by those who tear up the pave
ment and fall to relay them as good as
they were laid In the first place.
I have heard a great many regret ex
pressed by people In the last week over
th mess th people who are tearing up
'our fine Twenty-fourth street pavement
are making ef It.
loma provision should be made by our
elty engineer to make our pavements
permanent In a real sense.
Ths street of Omaha that are paved
are torn up from th beginning to th
end of each and every year. In the city
ef Pari, France, I have been told that
those who wish te lay underground pipe ,
and wire hsv to go under th streets
snd sr never allowed to tear up a pave
ment when one is Id, nd If w ever ex
pect to have dty beautiful aome pro
vision will have to be made by the city
engineer to prevent the tearing up of
pavement when they era once laid.
I am not an engineer nor the son ef
one, but It seem to me that there ought
te be wise men smeng the engineers of
the elty that esn devise a mean of sav
ing the paved street from the bumps
and hole that can be seen on every paved
street In the city.

It Is true that I am supporting the can

that Edgar Howard has ever written,

But if Senator Hardwick is riht. It i
all tho more Imperative that the United
Slate continue to protect our beet sugar
Industry. We should not abandon it be
cause Senator Hardwick has despaired
of the Louisiana Induatry. England
blockaded Kra'nee Jn lHi3-4-i and sugar
went to tl a pound In the latter country.
Thereupon Napoleon originated the beet
eufjar induatry which, up to that tlmp,
had been only an experiment. Suppose
the United Mate should berom em

OMAHA, May .-To the Editor of The
Ree: While It seem unlikely that any
body of sane men would Injure so valu
able an asset aa the household cat, there
Is, In the proposed city ordinance licens
ing eats, now afoot a movement to that
end, and It Is In hope of attracting at
tention to the folly of such a law that
theae line are written.
The taxing of cats would menn their
almost extermination, for but few peo
ples would stand the tax, and ths out
come would be th legal dctructlon of
the cat.
In the great number of poor homes
where cata are harbored principally for
the amuiement of the children the tax
would be resented s unjust, nor would
It h paid, with the result that, having
been deprived of their pets, thelr homes
would soon be Infested with fnhe, thus
causing much loss to those the least able
to endure It and, as well, robbing child
hood of Its best playmate. Ordinarily,
If not always, tbe only freedom front
mice It through cuts. The est hss Its
good traits as well a Its faults, and to
enjoy the benefit of the one wa must
endure the other. There Is, of course,
much objection to the night noise of the
est, from which we all suffer at tlmca,
and, while It Is very annoying, It is no
greater a reat robber than the disturb
ance of the crowing cock, the discordant
roWn, the whistling paper boy or the
noisy c and milkmen, and a an actlv
nuisance la much more preferable than
the practice of a music student, yet no
one would ask for the extermination of
these pests.
Much can be said sgalnst, as well a
for, the cat, but for the moment let ua
conaider only the issue at present In th
public mind, viz.: the cat a de
stroyer of bird. But, do they? The
wilier i emmmwy lima oi noin niru
and cats and hss ever been a careful
student of them. During a half century
of observation b ha not aeen sn In
stance of a cat destroying a bird, al
though many times having seen It at
tempted without success. Nor has he
found smong th large number Inter
rogated on the eubject a lngle peron
but whose experience wa similar to his,
all of which leads him to the conclusion
that, while cats may destroy birds, the
occurrence Is too rare to deserve atten
tion.
The oft-repeated statement that many
of tha desirable birds avoid a locality
Infested with eat I also unsupported
by the facta In my own case, for our home
neighborhood with It bountiful supply
of feline ha always had a large nutn
fier of bird nesting of many kinds and a
superabundance of the cheery, but filthy,
sparrows with their penchant for clog
ging th rslnsponts with their nests. Be
cause a few people have an unratlonai
dMike for cats Is not sufficient reason
for their extermination, and that the
cats' friends far outnumber Its enemies
goes without .sflylntf. Let us hope tbat
the bird lovers, which 1 practically all
of us, and particularly the Audubon so
ciety, will not bo led to pull the chest
nut 'for the few, unfortunately, super
nervous persona who "Just can't stand
a cat," In this truly unwise crusade
airalnst pne of the most valuable domes
tic, animals we have. Confer with th
city commissioners and acquaint them
with the gravity of the situstlon. Pro
test aaainat any taxation of cats. We
need them to keep us fre of mice.
