Loop-Holet in tht CempetiMtion Law.
State Labor Commissioner Coffey rightfully
protests against the interpretation which the Lin
coln school board would put upon our Nebraska
workmen's compensation law by contending that
it does not cover accidental injuries sustained by
public janitor. The law speciflcally Includes
governmental agencies, but the Lincoln school
board would seek to escape under the clause ex
cepting non-profit-making associations. It cer
tainly would be an anomaty for the state to set
up a standard of justice as between private em
ployers and employes, and then try (o shirk
similar responsibilities of its own through a loop
hole of legal technicality,
Yet the idea that a janitor takes employment
in a public school at his own accident risk, where
as he would be entitled to compensation if he
were working in a private business house, is no
more anomalous than some actual contradictions
of the Nebraska law. Why, for example, should
an employe enjoy its benefits while working for a
concern employing numerous co-wbrkers but lose
those benefits when compelled to hire out to an
employer with less than five workers? Why,
again, should the widow and children of a work
man killed in a threshing machine, for example,
have no consideration as coming under the char
acter of agricultural labor, while the widow and
children of a man killed in a packing house are
conceded full rights? Why, again, should society
assume the burden of industrial accidents and re
fuse to assume the burden of accidents of domes
tic employments?
Plainly, our conception of social justice legis
lation needs broadening out 10 as to smooth some
of these rough places. ' '

Nebraska Press Comment
Fremont Tribune:, If this hot weather con.
tinues, disappointed democrats can at least think
pleasantly ot one feature oi tne appointment ot
Omaha's new postmaster. His name is Fanning.
Osceola Record: All this talk of repealing; the
firimary law becomes tiresome. No one cares
or a change in the primary law, but those who
can no longer .control nominations -and wish to
o back toi tne boss ridden convention system,
he Record is strictly against any move in that
direction. ' ' " -" - ' " " '
' Columbus Telegram: Careful estimate show
that the Deoble of Nebraska spend several million
dollars per year with the big mail order houses
which sell things to eat and wear. Every dollar
of this money ought to be spent with home mer
chants. The suggestiorr-of The Telegram-is to
the effect that Nebraska merchants would be in
bettor position to ask people to buy, eat and wear
things here -at home it the merchant themselves
would practice what they preach, and quit send
ing insurance money to New York and London. -
Tekamah Herald:. Some of the state paper
are making sarcastic remarks about the democrat
paying $850 per year to the city of Lincoln for
the water used at the state house. It seems to
us that an explanation is ' necessary. Fifteen
thousand gallons a day is too much, especially for
democratic state omciais who never acquired tne
reputation of being fond Of water. , We would hot
blame them much for not using the Lincoln brand
of brine solution,' if they could obtain any other
substitute, to slake their thirst. : The question i
-what was the i5,ugu gallons per day used for.
Beatrice Express: The is but little consols
lion for the Nebraska democracy In the interview
given out by ex-Secretary, of-State Bryan at
Omaha. "1 do not care to advise the state con
vention," said the -ex-leader of. his party in this
jute. "The -wets carried the primary and upon
tnem rests tne responsiDiuty ot writing the plat
form and lavinit out; lheline of the camDaurn."
Not a word abceH, Mr. Hitchcock, Mr. Neville or
any of the other democratic candidate for Jtate
or congressional offices. , It, appear! that this is
me of the yeartv when Mr. Bryan, .bavins been
-mitten on one cheek, will refuse to turn his
..ither cheek in the direction of his assailants.
Passing of Two Great Men.
Two men who wrought for humanity in dif
ferent fields, but who saw the world through eyes
not dimmed by material things, have just gone
on ahead. James Whitcomb Riley won a poet'
bay because he sang the homely songs of the
people In phrase and meter that touched the
heart William Ramsay gained eminence because
he could look through matter and visualize some
thing beyond the mere substance he held in his
hand.' In response to his imagination, a new
world has opened to science, and man i given to
understand something closer to the truth than he
ever before approached. , Who will presume to
put a value on the real service of either of these
men? The one soothed the rest of a weary world
the other excited its desire for further endeavor,
but both served. Riley's song will be familiar
to million who never will read Ramsay's con
clusions, but those million will be the better
housed tnd fed because the chemist wrought his
work of inquiry. Each served well in his own
work, and the world is sdvantsged because they
England's Reply on Mail Question.
The outline of the note from Great Britain in
reply to the complaint of the United State
against Interception of neutral mails, as sent
from London, I disappointing. It might have
been expected that Foreign Minister Grey would
put the best possible face on the offensive policy
adopted by his majesty' government, but the
evasion of the real issue, and the pretense of sur
prise at the character of specific complaints made
is not convincing. The main fact la that the Brit
Ish have been taking neutral mails from neutral
ship, and holding it for inspection. This assump
tion of oversight of the relation between the
citiien of neutral countries, a well as their in
tercourse with nation at whom Great Britain
happen to be at war I intolerable."
Conventions of Geneva and The Hague, which
provide for the passage of mail in war time, have
been set aside or ignored. Contraband, actual Or
conditional, li defined for mail a well as for
merchandise, but this definition has' gone by the
board along with other restriction imposed by
agreement between the great power of the world.
Thi I because the Scandinavian countries and
Holland have persisted In their rights of com
munication with countries with whom they are
on friendly footing:,; United State trade .with
Germany and Austria hat been reduced to nearly
nothing. In fact, the British attitude since the
establishment of its constructive blockade has
been domineering as to neutrals, and is not im
proved by recent act.
Remonstrance by the United States, has not
been fairly met,' previous note from -Minister
Grey being of the tame nature a the present. A
more determined stand by our government is
necessary, If we are not to be reduced to the con
dition of the Scandinavian countries, and be put
on ration by England.
,, Rural Credits Pretension.
President Wilson has signed the rural credits
bill, passed by the present congress, saying as he
did so: ' . e ..!.
- I look forward to the benefits of this bill, not
with extravagant expectations, but with con
fident expectation that it will be of very wide
reaching benefit, and incidentally it will be of
advantage to the Investing community, for I
can imagine no more satisfactory or solid in
vestments than this system will afford those
who have money to use.
Inasmuch a the measure provides only for
machinery to loan money on first mortgage on
unincumbered land, and for but SO per cent of the
value, the exact benefit the farmer la going to
derive is not clear. Some argument ha been made
that it will have the effect of lowering the inter
est rate to the farmer. This remain to be seen.
The farm loan bank are to be permitted to issue
debenture bonds, guaranteed by the bank but
not by the government, based on the first mort
gage loan of the bank, but these bonds must
carry a rate of interest sufficiently high to make
them attractive to investors, or their sale will be
slow. The only co-operation permitted to the
farmer under law takes the form of organising
branches of the regional bank. , The short time
loan, needed for handling crops or in a live stock
deal, is not known to the farm loan bank, which
is to be exclusively a land loan affair.
The president I justified in hi expectation that
the farm loan bank will provide a safe, solid and
profitable investment for those that have money,
but it remains to be seen how It is going to help
the farmer, who is a borrower and not a lender?

As long as human heart throb with the
homely joys of simple live, the spirit and the
songs of Jim Riley will brighten the long road,
His spirit, like a blessing, brightens as its take
its flight.- ' ; ':-,:-! .- . . '

The real difference between men is energy. A

in this lies the distinction between great men and

Here's to the regular man.
And over and over to him
The man who has seen and known,
The man who Is skin and bone,
But utltler the surface that's hard and grim,
Soft and tender and broad and sweet,
A. father and husband that's hard to beat,
Soldier and citizen, hero and knight.
Ready In cold and ready In heat,
To spring to the saddle and fight!
