Nebraska Press Comment
Hastings Tribune:' The Omaha Bee wants to
know why there should be a platform convention,
anyhow, three months after the candidates are
nominated. O, just because.
Central City Republican: To counter-balance
the high price of paper, the big dailies would be
just as interesting if they cut out three-fourths
of the automobile literature and raised the price
on the remainder.
Ord Quiz: Whereas the Omaha World-Herald
was during the primary campaign hurling
epithets, invective and verbal brickbats at Mr.
Bryan it is now, since the St. Louis convention,

the time. - Oh, politics; what inconsistencies are
perpetrated in thy name. ; : .
Newman Grove Reporter: Clarence Harmon,
"state food commissioner, is an adept at getting
. all their is in his office. In addition to working
those who are subject to inspection by his office
to help him put over his six-year term idea he also
publishes a newspaper and solicits advertising
from concerns that are subject to inspection. He
may be honest in all he does, but it looks bad and
for the good of the service he ought to be sep
arated, from his job.
Fremont Tribune: Lest we forget, there is
, a domocratic majority in both houses of con
gress as well as a democratic president in the
' White House to be provided with republican suc
cessors. To gain trie presidency and to fail of
carrying the senate would be but half a victory
and would delay for two years the comnletion
of the republican program for national rehabilita
tion. This is a campaign in which no tricks are
to be overlooked. One of the necessary senators
is to be elected in Nebraska. The republican
; candidate is John L. Kennedy, capable, experi
enced, a man of large affairs. Let it be borne in
, mind during this vear of oresidential canvaaa
that .there will not be a party victory without
ina icing it complete in alt tne branches of gov

Where Draw the Line?
One of the amazing arguments put forward to
excuse or justify the policy of the Wilson ad
ministration that has sacrificed American lives and
American interests in Mexico to a day-dream, is
that the amount of American money invested
there has been grossly exaggerated. The most
conservative estimates place the total of American
investments in Mexico at $1,000,000,000, this
money having been advanced for the building of
the railroads, the equipping of the mines with
modern machinery, the digging of irrigation
ditches, the sinking of oil wells, the development
of various industries, etc., most of it long since
rendered useless and much of il completely
Now comes a democratic apologist to tell us,
"it is probable that instead of $1,000,000,000 in
vested in Mexico, not much more than one-fourth
of that amount was ever actually sent there, but
it is sufficiently large to demand protection." In
other words, whether American interests in for
eign lands, honestly acquired under the laws of
those countries and held under treaty guaranties,
are entitled to the protecting arm of our own gov
ernment depends upon the amount of dollars and
cents value. True, it is suggested that a foreign
investment aggregating $250,000,000 is "sufficient
ly large to demand protection," but how much
would the figure have to shrink to lose its right
to protection? Would only $100,000,000 of Ameri
can investments in Mexico absolve our govern
ment from standing up for American rights? Or,
if $100,000,000 invested would still be "sufficiently
large to demand protection," would only $10,000,-
000 let us out? Where draw the line?
Must we not have a foreign policy, and an ad
ministration to back it up, that asserts the rights
of American citizens wherever they may be, at
home or abroad, on sea or on land, regardless
whether they be millionaires or wholly moneyless?
Case of Postmaster Porter.
The high and mighty postmaster general at
Washington is bound to work his imperial will
on Postmaster Porter of Bridgeport, to the end
that a proper example be established for the edifi
cation of all understrappers in the service. Post
master Porter had the temerity to suggest that
some of the money used to increase pay of de
partment heads might be better applied to in
creasing the service to the public, especially at
Bridgeport, where it was needed. For this he
was summarily "discharged" by the p. m. g.,
whose dignity was affronted that a subordinate
shoutd dare to talk back. Porter, righteously
indignant at what he deemed an abridgement both
of free speech and the right to petition, declined
to turn over his office, and prepared to resist the
ouster. He now finds himself under arrest on a
technical charge of embezzlement, and threatened
with punishment. His crime consists of his criti
cism of the Postoffice department. His case ought
to win much support lor the Wilson regime in
Water, Wells and the State's Cash.
After the first astonishment at the statement
has passed, wonder is renewed as to what the
democrats did with that $850 worth of water pur
chased from the city of Lincoln for use at the
state house. At the boasted Lincoln rate of 15
cents per thousand gallons, this is equivalent to
more than 15,000 gallons a day, which is a con
siderable quantity, even for a good state house,
let alone a leaky, tumble-down affair such as
Nebraska clings to. Of course, the water must
have been furnished, or Lincoln never would have
charged for it, but the fact justifies suspicion that
has set Governor Morehead to looking into the
matter of wells. No One ever thinks of drinking
Lincoln city water when any reasonable substitute
may be had, and it is certain the democrats at
the state house didn't use that much in the process
of lavation, for no bath tubs can be found in the
building. The only thing absolutely sure in the
mystery is that it has cost the state $850 to use
Lincoln water at the state house for one year.
July's Distribution of Wealth.
The midyear distribution of wealth on ac
count of interest payments and dividends in this
country cannot be computed accurately. That
it constitutes a mighty pile is beyond doubt. Avail
able statistics of stocks and bonds listed in the
exchanges, mainly railroad and industrial secu
rities, the larger part of the whole, distributed
more money than in any former midyear period.
The New York Financial World figures the total
at $292,372,540, surpassing the record of a year
ago by $22,000,000. Stock yielded $107,762,540 to
the holders and interest payments aggregate
$184,600,000, both top records. The World notes
that the industrial groups were the chief gainers,
showing larger' net profits than the railroads,
a fact which war contracts account for. As a
whole, the railroads have done well, and distrib
uted $28,000,000 in dividends. This huge out
pouring of wealth is exclusive of the earnings of
a vast number of corporations unknown to stock
brokers, but whose earnings, in proportion to
capital, are equally liberal. In the aggregate,
doubtless, the midyear distribution of the un
knowns would raise the record to the $500,000,000
mark, or an average of $5 per head of the popu
An Evil That Will Cure Itself. .
In Hamilton county a situation is disclosed
which, in the surface, makes the apportionment of
delegates to the county republican state conven
tion seem unfair. That county is accorded only
nine delegates, because under the. Nebraska law
the basis is the vote last cast for a republican
candidate Tor president.,
The party down there, which was badly split
four years ago, is now wholly re-united, yet it
is granted a voice equal only to half what its
present numbers would warrant The extent to
which the bull moosers have come back is at
tested ' by the figures of the recent primary
which show that in Hamilton county there were
polled 1,084 republican votes and only three pro
gressive party votes and this is not exceptional,
but finds repetition in nearly every county in the
state; in fact, in forty-four counties out of ninety
three, no progressive party votes whatever were
cast The law governing political conventions
in Nebraska, however, does not recognize the
primary vote. We rather wish it did for, in that
event, it would put both bull moose and populist
labels off the ballot But these discrepancies, the
outgrowth of an exceptional condition, will all
disappear with the vote polled at the election
next fall, when this apparent evil will cure itself.
It is hardly to be wondered at that the allies

Likes and Dislikes of a (leader .
Omaha. July 8. To the Editor of The
Bee: I, for one, am sorry to see the essays
on natural science by Garrett P. Serviss
make way for your new column, "Today."
True, you publish a natural history article
occasionally on the magazine or household
page, by Mr. Serviss, but these, with the
exception of those on prehistoric mammalia,
do not interest the majority of yonr readers
of mature age, I do not think.
1 do not mean to criticise the editor on
his new departure, but we will sorely miss
those fine writings on the mysteries of the
earth, the sun, the moon and the stars, in
terspersed at times with an essay on the
mysteris of psychology. I think some of
the extracts from the Literary Digest,
the American magazine, the various big New
York dailies and other publications, that
often took up this space, will also be looked
for at times by many of your numerous,
readers. I am afraid that if I say very
much more on this subject the editor will
censor this to the waste basket, so I will
call a truce.
The write-up of a speech at a Child's
Point picnic, by Dr. George Pi Wilkinson,
interested ma very much it is indeed in
structive, I may aay educational. But we,
who are on tha side of personal privileges,
and believe In a moderate indulgence In
those things that are as the speaker said
"natural to nature" muet remember what
is shead of us this fall. Do not forget
then, yoji lovers of an occasional glass, to
start your good work at once. If you do
not, these prohibition folk who are trying
to take the enjoyment of such picnics away
from you; who are bound, it seems, to lower
the value of the property we own, and at
the same time increase our taxes (for this
will surely happen) will perhaps be able. to
snow us under and ruin the future chances
of one of the very beat states In the union
our own dear Nebraska.

How to Keep Cool.
Hebron, Neb., July 8. To the Editor of
The Beet Everybody knows enough to keep
his head eool in hot weather, but even bet
ter care should be given the feet than the
rest of the person, for If your feet pain
you, it unfits you for work or pleasure
Bathing the feet night and morning with
lukewarm water and a good soap is the
first step in the process of alleviating the
Bufferings of aching feet In hot weather.
Especial attention should be given to careful
drying, else the skin will be apt to split be
tween the toes and cause an enormous
amount of inconvenience. Highly recom
mended Is a liquid composed of boraeie acid,
one teaspoonful, to one pint of alcohol. This
is used in an atomiser and the feet
sprayed with it. This cannot, be used .too
frequently; immediately upon application it
should be fanned with a palm leaf fan until
quite dry. The alcohol evaporates quickly,
leaving a thin coating of the acid over the
feet. This ia cooling, deodorizing, antiseptic
and takes the swelling out of tired feet
quicker than anything.
Then, If followed up with the following
foot powder, sprinkled into the stocking,
you will not know you have any feet:
Powdered starch, ten ounces; salicylic acid,
five ounces ; talcum powder, thirty-five
grains; oil of bergamot, ten drops; oil of
lavender, six drops; oil of wtntergreen, six
teen drops. This should be well mixed,
then put through a sieve to eradicate, all
coarse particles. While its use does not
check the perspiration, yet it keeps the feet
and stockings dry as a bone.

WORLD'S RICHEST WOMAN.

forethat not all the business ability in the
world Is monopolised by the men.
New York World : Altogether a curiously

idiosyncrasies of greatness, loving money
only for the power it gave, and simple al

sonal adornment and the things her sex
Pittsburgh Dispatch: "The richest woman

she happy 7 Did she make others happy?
That, and not the mere accumulation of mil
lions, is the real teat of living. Measured
by that standard the richest woman in tha
world might have been the most miserable.
Louisville Courier-Journal: Mrs. Green's
life was not an inspiring example. It was
about as barren in that respect ae the life
of any quiet, unobtrusive, respectable, but
uninteresting person could be. Her mind
was keen, but her spirit was dull. She did
not employ money as an opportunity, or
acknowledge its possession as a responsi
bility. Springfield Republican : Aa a figure In the
financial world she most resembled among
her contemporaries Russell Sage. Like him
she bought low and sold high and kept
plenty of cash and gilt-edged securities on
hand for use to advantage when the other
fellows were pinched. Like him alao ahe
eared little for the things, except money,
which most people of wealth enjoy or feel
under some obligation to possess.
Philadelphia Record : Hetty Green was not
a aslf-made woman. She Inherited $9,000,000
from her father and two or three more mil
lions from an aunt. From her father she
also inherited extreme shrewdness and ex
treme economy. That ahe managed In a long
life to pile up an immense fortune is not very
remarkable in view of the fact that she never
took any chances, that she had so vast a
capital to begin with that she could buy
"sure things" to an unlimited extent when
they were on the bargain counter, and that
she never spent a cent that she could avoid
parting with. She was a very competent In
vestor, and she was economical.
