Captain Kocnig of the Deutsehland evidently
appreciates the humor of hi achievement, and ii
not above joking us a little in his jovial German
way. But he is not altogether "spoofing" in his
prophecy that a fleet of freight-carrying Zeppelins
is to supplement , the U-boat in reviving com
merce with Germany. That such a proceeding is
possible is beyond doubt; that it is probable is
equally admissible. Long before the war broke
out Count Zeppelin had very definite plans for
crossing from Germany to the United States, and
the air-fleet might have been regularly established
ere this had not Mars had immediate use for the
equipment of Mercury. It was not impossible
then, and is feasible now, and with the stimulus
of-VPTr and the pressure. of "big business" to ani
mate them, the Germans may really bring to pass
that vision of Tennyson, who !
Saw the heavens filled with commerce,
Argosies of magic sails,
Pilots of the purple twilight,
Dropping down with costly bales.
It is only a question of fuel for power pur
poses. This is a detail the German scientists and
mechanics will attend to. They have accomp
lished other things of equal difficulty, and even in
their sternest hour of bloody conflict may become
the pioneers for the day when travel will be over
head. At least, the world will welcome the adap
tation of the aircraft to the purposes of peace.

The Houston Post condemns the assertion of

Yes, But Who Will Oo Bond?
Anticipating the platform-makers in the
forthcoming state conventions, The Lincoln Star,
which usually speaks by the card for the demo
cratic machine, insists that while the "dry
amendment should not be made a party issue,
"the democratic platform ought to declare, and
undoubtedly will declare, that whatever the de
cree of the people in regard to this issue may be,
it should be, and will be, carried out to the letter
by the party entrusted with executive and legis
lative power." And then, after more of the same
kind, it says: "That is the essence of democracy
which keeps faith with the people. It ought not
to be necessary for any party to promise that its
candidates will obey the expressed and recorded
will of the people but in this particular instance
it seems quite imperative that democrats shall
Perhaps it ought not to be necessary, but the
Star knows, and that is the reason for its demand,
that the candidates nominated on the democratic
state ticket are under suspicion, the discredit hav
ing been attached to them by the campaign made
by Mr, Bryan against their nomination. For very
good reasons, born of experience, democratic
pledges do not pass current at par, either in state
or nation. Realizing this when he wrote the
Baltimore platform, Mr. Bryan added the solemn
assurance, "Our pledges are made to be kept when
in office as welt as relied upon during the cam
paign," But, even that has not prevented the
flagrant repudiation of most of the platform prom
ises on, which democrats rode into power. The
coming democratic state platform might repeat
this phrase and still not allay popular distrust.
Before banks fork over cash in exchange for
promises to pay, they require indorsements or
collateral security and when democratic promises
are handed out this year, Nebraska voters will be
apt to ask: "Where is the bond to guarantee re

honor of St Swithin, Bishop of Winchester, in
England, from 852 to 862. He was not canonized
by the church but only in popular tradition. The
weather rhyme runs, in one of many variants, as
St. Swithin's day, if thou aost rain

J. Smyth, J. T. Moriarity and T. F. Brennan.

Oil Inspection Fee.
The referee in the oil inspection fee case has
made a recommendation to the court that should
bejrery satisfactory to the Standard Oil company,
bdt is not likely to meet public approval, ine
case appears to hinge on whether the fee collected
is in excess of the cost of the service rendered.
Under the Nebraska constitution public revenue
is to be raised by direct taxation, but of late
years the fees collected by public officers have
appreciably supplemented the"1 income, and af
forded opportunity to reduce the direct levy by
that much. These fees were fixed, for the, most
part, at a time when the service was not so fre
quently called for. In the case of oil inspection,
the consumption of oil In Nebraska has increased
to such an extent that the fees collected far more
than pay the cost of the service. This is equally
true of other work for which fees are collected
by public officers. In Douglas county each officer
of record turns into the treasury a considerable
balance after paying all expenses of hta office,
None will contend that the fee for registering
automobiles is not much larger than the cost of
doing the work, purposely made so that the sur
plus may be used for road improvement , With
these examples, it is plain that if the recommenda
tion of the referee in the oil case is adopted by
the courts as the law, the entire fee system will
have to undergo an overhauling and readjust
,ment, and a much larger sum of money be col
lected by direct taxation.
Democracy and the Other Kind.
One sprightly young German sailor will go
back with the Deutsehland carrying a notion of
the difference between American democracy and
Germany autocracy. Whether he will apply it
as it should be is a matter for him to decide, but
the probabilities are strong in favor of its get
ting home. This young man, in a spirit of fun,
asked and received permission to sit in the preii
dent's chair at the head of the cabinet table. This
act in itself doesn't mean a great deal to an
American citizen, anyone of whom may be called
upon to fill that chair officially. To a youngster
from a land where government comes from above,
the experience must have some appeal. He should
get from it a sense of higher valuation of his in
dividual life than he could possibly Imbibe at
home, and a better conception of the privileges of
free citizenship. It is not likely he will reach
this conclusion all at once, but (his memory will
always carry the picture of himself sitting in the
seat of the executive head of a great people, and
in time he will realize that that head is not there
by birth, but is chosen by the suffrages of that
people. This germ of freedom ought to bring
fruit that will ripen in one more naturalized citi
zen of the United States.
The deadlock between the city and street
railway company produces this peculiar situation
that the company is able to make extensions
outside of the city, but notInside of the municipal
boundaries. There should be some way of reach
ing an adjustment that will not affect the fran
chise question on one side or the other.

Story-ette of the Day.
Jim Smith was notoriously slow pay. He
owed quite a bill at the grocery for pork. One
day, as his credit was becoming strained, he
walked calmly into the grocery and said: "Mr.
Black, I want to pay you for the pork I. have
had. and I want some more."
"Certainty," said the delighted proprietor, as he
nastenea to wait on nis customer.
Taking the package of pork, Jim Smith started
to go. i .
Watt a minute, said the proprietor. "I
thought you wanted to pay for the pork."
"I do, remarked Jim, as he resumed his home
