Something for Omaha to Go After.
Now that the rural credits bill has passed
congress, why doesn't Omaha hop in and
cop one of the new land-banks? Nebraska
is entitled to one of these land-banks, as it
is one of the greatest farming states in the
union, and Omaha is the logical place to
put the bank. Franklin News.
This is a pertinent question and also the cor
rect answer. By all the testt of geography, ac
cessibility, business and banking facilities, Omaha
should have had the Ideation of the Federal Re
serve bank that went to Kansas City in con
sequence of its superior political "pull" with the
democratic powers that be. It is possible that
possession of the reserve bank constitutes an ad
vantage for Kansas City in competing for the
rural credits headquarters, but that is no bar to
Omaha going after it and only an added reason
why we should go after it harder. Although
Omaha has not, we must confess, fared specially
well in securing recognition from the present
democratic administration, we ought to be able
to command attention strictly on the merits of
our claim.
"Lese Majeste" in the Postoffice.
For the second time within the year Post
master General Burleson has "fired" a postmaster
for "lese majeste," This time it happens to be
Postmaster Porter of Bridgeport, capable and
popular with the patrons of the postoffice "he
served, but guilty of the heinous crime of insist
ing on having more help and better pay for hit
help, that the service of his office might be im
proved. When this request was turned down, he
wrote to Washington, commenting on the fact
that pay of high officials had been increased,
while the department wat insuring on rigid
economy. This, according to the postmaster
general, shows him, to be "grossly disloyal to
the department," and he was incontinently
This action by Mr. Burleson isn't exactly
democratic, but is more the whimsical petulance
of an autocrat, Mr. Porter might have couched
his letter in more diplomatic terms, but he fol
lowed good precedent in going straight to the
point in the good blunt fashion of an American
citizen when criticizing his government. This
seems to have been too much for the testy post
master general, but hit high and mighty method
of enforcing loyalty isn't likely to prove popular.
He may intend it at notice to other postmasters,
as was the case of the Virginia postmaster who
criticised the president's second marriage, but
this will not make it any better.
Maybe the time has come when g'overnment
employes are to be deprived of the right of
free speech, but it teem strange that tenure of
office is dependent upon endorsement of all that
a cabinet officer doet. This is un-American,
but apparently is good practice under the present
democratic administration.
Standard Road Should Be Adopted.
Good road building is being energetically
pushed In Nebraska these days, and with promise
of ultimate splendid results, Douglas county
voters recently authorized a bond issue that will
finance a four-year campaign of construction,
and eventually will provide for a system of coun
try roadt that should be of Immense service.
Other counties of the state are similarly active
and the gospel of good roads is being more gen
erally preached today than ever. So far, so
good. One most important factor is ndt get
ting proprr attention. So far no standard hat
been tet for the character of road that is to be
built. Some thought hat been given this point,
but no definite action has been taken to secure
the uniformity of construction that it vitally
necessary to make the general road system that
must come in time for Nebraska one of the high
est possible service at the least possible cost.
Each county, each township and each community
has its own ideal as to what is good to do, but
quite a wide range of variation exists between
these separate plans, Until they are co-ordinated,
and a standard is fixed, the good roadt
movement of Nebraska will not be giving the
best possible service to the state. The state en
gineer, or the engineering department of the Uni
versity of Nebraska, might well lead off in an
effort to secure agreement on this.
Labor's Program for Peace and War.
Samuel Gompcrs, addressing the convention
of the League to Enforce Peace, outlines the
position of organized labor of America on the
question of war. It is almost wholly contained
in the proposition that the war must be de
fensive, and that the people must have a voice
in its declaration. This is quite in consonance
with the general attitude of the American peo
ple. War is not made by hereditary rulers or
privileged classes, in the United States. War
can only be declared by congress. Even treaty
obligations, such as that which Muds us to pre
serve the independence of Panama, must be
taken to congress before commencing conflict.
Mr, Gnmpert' other propositions are quite
in line with the thought of the day. Regard
less of the outcome of the war now rasing, it
is difficult to conceive of an alliance of nations
for reactionary purposes. The "Holy Alliance" of
the ratty nineteenth century will not be revived
at this day. Democracy i making long strides,
ami in the new era now dawning the people will
mote than ever have the ordering of their af
fairs I's program will faitly square with
the aspirations of genuine democracy.

Presidential Politics
Hughes' Popularity Tests. ,
Sioux City Journal: It is certain pro-Roosevelt
republicans will do what they can to pre
vent the nomination of Justice Hughes. It is
likely the so-called old guard leaders would pre
fer to nominate some other candidate. Never
theless the probability increases that political
logic will be so plain by convention time that
both elements will join in tendering the nomina
tion to Hughes, who will accept in the continued
absence of now unforseen complications.
At the outset the strongest influences in
Hughes' favor were negative ones. Admittedly
a strong man of presidential caliber, Hughes
had taken no part in the party warfare of 1912
and 1914. Respected alike by conservatives and
radicals he had not been identified with the
politics of either faction. Hughes had established
liimself in the affections of the west by his
campaign work for Taft in the 1908 campaign.
It was natural enough that in the early days
of their tussle with the problem of 1916 the re
publican leaders should look to Hughes as the
man most likely to reunite the party. They
looked to him because of his unobjectionability,
and they kept on looking to him after it became
apparent that he would not seek the nomination.
Until recently the Hughes possibility ha
been considered in connection with two ques
tion marks. The first question to be answered
was whether Hughes would accept the nomina
tion. All along it seemed that he could not re
fuse a nomination that carried a real mandate
from the republican party. There is no longer
any doubt of his acceptance should the nomina
tion be tendered on a clean plate, The other
and the more important question was whether
the republican, rank and file the plain people
east and west would "warm up" to him. As
to that, his ability to hold bis own in two New
York state campaign and his record as a cam
paigner in the west offered the only testimony.
Now that question, too, has been answered in
conclusive tyle.
The first impression of Hughes' strength
with the rank and file was given in Nebraska,
where on primary day, after Hughes had in
sisted on having his name removed from the
ballot, some 15,000 voters took the trouble to
write in hit name to indicate their preference for
President. An even more emphatic example of
fughe' popularity wat given out in Oregon
the other day, when the courts refused to let
his wihe govern and ordered hi name printed
on the ballot. There, in competition with two
active candidates who were touring the state
in their own interest, Hughe not only a passive
but an unwilling candidate, polled some 10,000
votes more than both of his active competitors
and registered a plurality of 25,000 over the one
who took second place. With the middle west
and far west thus accounted for, it was im
portant to hear from the plain people in the
east. The voice of the east was raised in Ver
mont last Tuesday. There the names of candi
date were not printed on the ballot and all had
an equal chance in the writing-in process.
Hughes had an overwhelming majority of those
who were sufficiently interested to express
their preference, polling 5,480 vote to 1,831 vote
for Rooevelt, while only scattering vote were
cast for other candidates.
It may be that Hughes was first pushed for
ward by practical politician who wanted to get
away from Rooievelt. It is plain that the argu
ments that appealed to the leader have also ap
pealed to the rank and file and that they have
fallen behind the Hughes candidacy, east and
Unfolding the Roosevelt Plan.
Springfiel Republican: Perhaps the news
from Oregon hastened the announcement of the
republican organization that ha been formed
to urge, the nomination of Theodore Roosevelt
upon the republican national convention. To
the illumination furnished by many newspaper
canvasses and the primaries, showing that the
majority of regular republican do not want Mr.
Roosevelt at their nominee this year, hat been
added the news that whereas Roosevelt lost in
the only state where his name ha been made
an issue Massachusetts Justice Hughes, being
placed in a similar position also against his
wishes, came out an overwhelming victor in
Surely something needed to be done to save
the Roosevelt nomination from discouragement.
He bade the country get itself into heroic mood
and demand his services. When that method of
attack proved unavailing, the colonel confessed in
open letter that he wa ready to accept the nom
ination from the party out of which he declared,
four year ago, all virtue had fled. Now come
the last resort of open working, after the fash
ion of many "favorite sons." To be sure, the
delegation from New York is far more favorable
to Hughes, the unwilling and undeclared, than
it is to the man from Oyster Bay. Hence the
effort to make the demand cover the country.
All pretense of coyness has been taken awav
from the Roosevelt candidacy to the last shred.
He is in the ring with the rest battling for the
highest honor within the gift of the republican
party. There is not only humor in this situa
ein, but grim reality as well.
Under the banner of one who "better than
any other man represents the spirit of American
ism awakened in the present crisis of the na
tion's history," republicans are invited to march.
The headquarters of the new organization of
which (ieorge von L. Meyer is chairman, are
in the Hiltmore hotel In New York City, where
it will operate sor a week before opening head
quarters in Chicago. The New York Roosevelt
organ says this movement is backed by more
than 2,000 republicans from all parts of the
country. In reading over the names it is in
teresting to note that most of them are not new
recruits to the Roosevelt cause.
Meanwhile the thing which trouble the sup
porters of Mr. Roosevelt and all the rest of the
declared candidates is the amaitng growth of
the popular demand for the nomination of Jus
tice Hughe. Wh.f can be done to put an end
to this irregular Im; genuine indication of the
desire of the unorganized but overwhelming
ni4c of republicans?
Many i tituen is asking hiiuielf whether it
will be possible to trick or tajole Justice Hughes
into saying something that mud remove him
from the path of so many ambitions. Republi
can who favor bint evidently think he ha said
all he might to jv on Ibis itihieet. The Wash
inutoii correspondent of the New York World
believe he tus uncovered a scheme by which
a letter is tit be sent about June I to !t tlio

Omaha, May 2. To the F.ditor of The
Bee. Mm. Karen T. Rorer, advertiaed ae
the world's (rreateiit dietfan. ay that the
"bread and pies that mother ued to make"
are so danireroue to health that he wouldn't
eat a piece of It for a dollar, but ahe fail
to explain jiint what kind of cooking aha
eubniated on when a girl. Perhapa ahe wa
an expert on cooking hn en infant and
dictated the menu of the family.
The world la getting better morally, men
tally and phynically, and in moat American
homea have been doinpr no on the "good old
fashioned cooking." But out of thi wlld
ernesa of "erroneous dieting" she cornea with
the beacon of rescue her cook book to
lead us Into the path of light. Why doesn't
she be honest with her audience and tell
them that common sense, coupled with mod
eration in eating is the secret of health.
She must have visited a majority of Amer
ican homea In order to leem that we could
not cook and that we had auch atrocioua
table manners. Mrs. Rorer probably visited
one American home where the housewife
was unable to cook, and instantly drew the
conclusion that the same shortcoming was
characteristic of the whole nation, end be
ceuse she sew one German housewife who
could cook necesaarlly thought all Germans
were exceptionally good conks. And like
wise, because she sees a few "butterflies"
flittering about the street, Instantly be
comes Imbued with the idea that all woman
kind are going to reck end ruin over clothes.
Mrs. Korer also seems to be horrified at
the thought of the Isborer expending the
whole of his 7 a week to feed a family of
six, end this surprise In the fare of the
fact that the cost of living Is constantly
Inereaelng! Evidently the food revolution
is would recommend hardtack and water.
The fact that her audience has dwindled
from 1 HO to fifty ia pretty good evidence
that Omaha women do not care to spend
their time listening to the advocate of
cook book that teaches how to starve a
Urge family with healthy appetites on 17
a week. It la just such a brand of talk
that sickens men against woman suffrage.
8he must heve no fear shout women ap
preciating the ballot, for I believe that the
majority would not use it as Mrs. Rorer,
but would vote with average intelligence..

Whet I the Nature of Republicanism!
Omeha, May 2T. To the Editor of The
Ree. I clipped the enclosed letter from
the New York Tlmea, written by Otto T.
Hannard, delegate to the republican national
convention, to an antl-Rooaevelt republican
in his district defining his own position,
which ia aaid to be that of most New York
organization republicans t
"I have your letter of yesterday stating
your strong opposition to the nomination
of Roosevelt end asking me my views be
ceuse I am a delegate to the republican na
tional convention from your district.
"I cannot eoncelve of a republican conven

member of different political party,
either democrat or progressive.
"The mere statement of the proposition
should defeat It and If the republican party
should admit there was no one In its party
worthy of the nomination it could not hope
for, nor could it meet success. Such a
transplanted 'outlander' candidate would be
beaten before the hot weather was over.
Nor could any republican be Justly criticised
for openly opposing this exotic.

What Chance for Arbitration?
Benson, Neb., May 28. To the Editor of
The Bee. It seems almost incredible to be
lieve that people who ere supposed to be
well posted on international affaire are so
simple as to take notice of peace rumors.
The German violation of Belg'.um'e neutral
ity was a direct blow at the British lion's
bread basket and started the lion's tail
wagging to auch an extent that the com
bined influential power of the neutrel coun
tries of the world cannot stop it. The Wil
son administration killed its influence in
England when it neglected to protest
against the violation of Belglum'e neutral
ity and also when It submitted to the con
tention that submarines had a legal right
to act aa commerce raiders, ae a result hun
dreds of non-combatants have been slaugh
tered. Great Britain's dependence on neu
tral countries for the necessities of life has
hamstringed the British navy, but this
handicap is gradually being overcome and
will be accomplished In due time, as a result
British naval power will be used to the
maximum legal limits. People who think
the German fleet will not be forced by
economic stringency to come out and fight,
do not realita the tenacity of the British
lion. Nelson waited two years at Toulon.
