DW1GHT WILLIAMS, Circulation Manager. Subaerlbed in my preaanoa and ewora te before ma Ihia Id day of July, ROBERT HUNTER. Notary Public "Zepi," U-Boati uid "Big Business." 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. Subscribers leaving th city Umporarllv should have Tha Bn nailed to them.

As a sample of democratic preparedness, the riot of famished guardsmen at Cleveland will hold their attention for awhile.

The railroads have not yet given even plaus ible excuse for their discrimination against Omaha in summer excursion rates. Their attitude seems to be merely, "What are you going to do about it?" v That is certainly the "irony of (ate" for those - Iowa militiamen snswering 'the summons (or service u Mexico only to be Incapacitated by lightning, before getting out of the mobilization camp. - - : .

An other mollycoddle converted by the pressure, of Iowa's democratic keynoter doubtless carries a large stock of good intentions. His claim that good roads are possible without increasing taxa tion suggests large contributions from- his pile of justly celebrated paving material. The Houston Post condemns the assertion of , southern politicians that the rich north will bear the greater share of the preparedness cost, and the sice of bill does not concern the south. Texas, the Post asserts, will pay its share of the cost through indirect taxation. So will every northern state, and the bulk of the income taxes at the same time.

A variety of personally-conducted oaths supplement the oath taken when the boys were mustered in. ?' " " '" Later returns show that the champion girl kisser of 'Pennsylvania .whose recor d of 971 guardsmen swacked wihout a recess, startled the social fabric of the Kenstone state, performed the ooeraWon under an assumed name. Her real name is Emma Hughe, not Mary Hainsey, as first given. The favored, guardsmen contend the name is of no consequence. The kisses were the real thing. , There is more truth than imagination in the claim of a Maine angler that Ash. can reason. Many follower of thenscatorial game have had similar hunches, the latest being Dick O'Neill of Courtland, Kan. Dick fastened his fishing pole to a stake and was loading a small rifle when a fish of unknown size closed in on the bait and pulled the line rapidly through the reel. The line became tangled in the gun and discharged it, "ding the bullet into the fisherman's leg. Hav i r, put its enemy out of business, the fish sent up a iw duddics oi joy ana vanished. . 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 do this." 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 demption?". ' Thought Nugget For the Day. Nobler than a ship safely ending a long voy age, and sublimer. than the setting sun, is the old age of a just ana Wna ana w eiui " St Swithin's Day Today. c.t Swithin'i dav is observed as a festival in 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 follows: St. Swithin's day, if thou aost rain For forty days it will remain; , St. Swithin's day, if thou be fair, For forty days, 'twilt rain nae mair. One Year Ago Today in the) War. Italian assault in the Dolomites repelled. Britiah and French captured large town in central Kamerun. Russia admitted Teutonic gains in nortnern drive on Warsaw. Allies seized two lines of Turkish intrencn- ments in alt-day battle. , Germany formally admitted that the damage to the American merchant ship Nebraskan was caused by German submarine. This Day in Omaha Thirty Years Ago. The funeral of Miss Maggie Brodertck took place from the residence of her parents on South Eleventh street. The remains were borne to St Philomena's, where requiem high mass was chanted by Rev. F. Carroll. The juvenile choir under Miss Fannie Arnold, rendered the choral work, while the pallbearers were: I. I. Nichol, C. J. Smyth, J. T. Moriarity and T. F. Brennan. B. R. Ball, of the firm of Ball & Van Brump, has just returned from Chicago, accompanied by his niece, Miss Kittie Ball. The G. G. G., a woman's club of this city, gave a reception at the home of the Misses Dohaney in honor of the coming marriage ot miss Biancne Oliver to Mr. W. L. Welsh. The Second infantry band, now stationed at Fort Omaha, favored The Bee with a serenade, 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. - The country no doubt will enjoy the news that the National Woman's party has tossed its hat into the political ring. The operation lends a -touch of color to the collection and disposes of headwear distinctly out of date. V : Congress hangs out the sign of an early finish.

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 ward way, "but I can't." The Christian Herald. Haaaaa far Haighea. vhh.., K.h Jul la.

To the Editor of Tha Bee: The municipal bathing beach at Carter lake la one of the commendable featurea of thia great inland city. It reflect! the big heartedneaa of tha aatuta eitr father in eotting aside a place for recreation where the weary toilers at tha end of a weltering day can refreah themeelvoa In th cooling depth of the eparkling lake. But in opit of the good intent' of our well meaning eltiaena thia atill remains a world In which privilege la often miaoon atrued into a licenae for the vteioue nnd the vulgar. Juat aa the wholeaome fun ia atartlng, some jynx boba up, turna off the unahine and apoila tha whole thing. The jynx at Carter lake ia tha one-piece bathing eult donned by a few doaen daring women evidently attempting' to epread-eagle around tha eonventione that prevent them from poa Ing entirely nude before th publie gaae. The world ha not yet advanced to that atage of perfection when aemi-nude poeing of the fair aex at th beachea can be eonaid erad anything hut vulgar. Vulgarity ia ignor ane of aociety eonventione and in thia in etanee a perverae vulgarity which nauaeatee and disguata anyone who will atop to rata the ehallow mindedneaa that perauadea a fe male to poae in publie aa September Morn.

On th other hand, if th one-piece auit la worn for the edification of the he-hangera-on at the beach, let ua haaten to remind the nymphe that theae beach warmera are men in name only. Th real, red-blooded regu lar fellow la too buay apiaahing to reeetv any divine inspiration and the beach warmer who enjoya himaelf ogling the women ia tn lazieat, weakeat, moat ineonaequential rodent out of captivity It la impoaaible to engender pure admiration in hia mind. The higheat inspiration he haa ia a aniveling deaire to exchange inainuating remarka that fall far ahort of the compliment Bought by the apritely mcrmaide and also a few ancient tub-ahaped female monsters of the deep. W were reared near the largest' bathing beach In the world, and while there were no rule that required a fair bather to eover herself with - a full length linaer woolaey petticoat, there were adequate regulations that made the vulgar impoaaible and elimi nated the he-hanger-on. Viaitora never mis took the beach for a reincarnation of th Gardvn of Eden, and huabande didn't have to wear a bandage over their eyes when bathing with friend wife. Pernapa Omaha will iaaue adequate restric tions. We trust the good mayor will look Into tha matter and alao not take too long a look.
