Unfortunately, not all of the "distinguished
Americas writers" with "small interest in poetical
parties" are as open and honest as Meredith
Nicholson in admitting that he is for Wilson be
cause he is "a party man, a democrat," who swal
lowed both Bryan and Parker nd maintains his
"regularity" by voting in the democratic primar
ies. The others are just as Intensely partisan
democrats but not so frank in avowal.
The visit of the submarine freighter Deutsch
land seemed notable, first of all, in verifying ro
mancer Jules Verne. Also one. thrilled to the dar
ing of Captain Koenig and his crew. Incidentally,
the Deutschland created a remarkable diversion at
ajtime when Germans were as hungry for good
nlws as for good food. After the naval "victory"
off Jutland, and the commencement of the allies'
"Big Push, what more welcome than this blood
less triumph over British sea power? But for
Americans the coming of the Deutschland seemed
of especial importance in the light its construction
and the construction of other "supersubmarine"
may throw on future German policy and on
Meantime the open-minded editors of the "New
Republic" point out the blindness of assuming
that the controversy between the United States
and Germany over the use of the submarine as a
commerce destroyer is ended, so far as the pres
ent war goes. We know very little about the rela
tive strength of the factions at Berlin which favor
and oppose extreme methods in dealing with this
issue, but, however strong or weak Tirpitx and
Bethmann-Hollweg may respectively be, it is clear
that as a last resort against blockade and against
the conclusion of peace upon unfavorable terms
the submarine remains a tempting, even if, in the
last analysis, unprofitable, weapon. Germany's im
proved submarines can hardly be ignored until
that government recognizes that its real job is
peace on the best terms procurable. " That stage
has not as yet been reached. Meanwhile, the
dangers to our precarious neutrality threatened
by renewed submarine activity are increasingly
apparent The "New Republic is not , partisan
periodical, and this adds force to its conservative
statement that the administration "has done noth
ing and written nothing to convince Germany of
its will or its ability to be neutral in the sense of
enforcing the old rules against both the belliger
ents, uor has anything it has done 'or written
secured, from Germany a repudiation of the sink
ing ot the Lusitania. It has no policy except that
of keeping out of trouble from day to day. This
s one of the discouraging weaknesses of the ad
ministration. What is still more discouraging is
that, under the inspiration of such a leadership,
rntr people has lost itself in doubts,, not only of
mencan duties, but even of American rights.
WindUp of the Bull Moose Party.
The action, or rather inaction, of the bull
moose conference at Indianapolis means the wind
up of that party and its speedy extinction as a
national political organization.
' The conference has decided not to reassemble
the national convention to make another nomina
tion for president. The reason for this is obvious,
for an attempt to reconvene the delegates who
met at Chicago last June either would disclose a
majority of them, if all should attend, to be sup
porting Hughes or the absence of those who have
rejoined the republican party would show what a
mere handful the irreconcilables make. The mem
bers of the Indianapolis conference, composed
now of assistant democrats, do, not want to take
a chance on a bull moose convention officially
substituting Hughes in the vacancy left by Roose
velt's declination and so propose to go on with a
leaderless ticket composed only of John M. Par
ker as nominee for vice president, Parker himself
being a Louisiana democrat whose progressivism
stops short of joining any party like the republic
an party that does not draw a color line. Even
though a bull moose electoral ticket is put up in
a few states, in none of them can there be the
slightest hope of winning out and the party will
cut less of a figure nationally than did even the
populists in any election before their disintegra
tion. ... '
' It is idle to debate whether the bull moose
party has, or has not, fulfilled a mission. It must,
however, be clear to everyone open to conviction
that the objects at which the party aimed, insofar
as they have intrinsic merit,-are attainable only
through the republican party. Sincere bull moos
ers will waste no more time or effort on a third
party movement but will accept the leadership of
Hughes and exert themselves for his election.
Does Carransa "Come Clean?" '
Senor Carrania is evidently quite willing to
settle with the United States, but on 'his own
terms, and unless a great change in policy takes
place at Washington, this will be the basis for the
negotiations soon to be entered into. His note,
in reply to that from the United States, recently
dispatched to Mexico, completely ignores the sug
gestion that the relations between our country and
the revolutionists below the border be considered
in their entirety. . Carranza instrusts his commis
sioners to devote their attention to points he him
self has outlined, which have to do with the pres
ence of American troops south of the border, and
conditions that will govern in the matter of pro
tecting the border from further forays by bandits.
The weightier questions as to reparation for out
rages of the past, guaranty of good behavior for
the future, and establishment of orderly and re
sponsible government are not to be considered.' '
Carranza is wilier if not wiser than Mr. Wilson
and.his advisers. The first chief has just declared
his intention of resigning his office and entering
the lists as a candidate for president, at an elec
tion to be called when the military junta now in
power deems it expedient. Senor Venustiano has
no intention of going before his countrymen,
handicapped by the accusation of having entered
into negotiation with the Gringo over any detail
of the Mexican government. , Moreover, he in
tends to adopt a new constitution for Mexico, and
doesn't especially care to be hampered in fixing
Its scope by any inconvenient consultations or
agreements in progress between his commission
ers and those of the United States. The first
chief may be neither a statesman nor a general,
but he is showing signs of political cunning that
would do credit to a Tammany chieftain.
On our side is Mr. Wilson, who has "kept the
country out of was," but who, none the less, has
the entire land force of the United States lined
up along the border of Mexico, and is calling for
more men to go there, where "peace still rages
unabated," Unless he can bring off something
more definite with Carranza than is at present' m
prospect, his Mexican policy becomes more of a
farce than ever. I ..
Problem of the Toll Bridges.
! The question of a free bridge is part and
parcel of the good roads problem which is
pressing for solution. . It is a chronic eyesore
and an increasingly annoying impediment to
the growth and prosperity of this great center
of population that the toll collector stands in ,
the way of transportation and traffic between
the eastern and western portions of this com
Straight to the point, but still the objection to
the toll collector levying tribute on transportation
beween Omaha and Council Bluffs spplies also
to the toll collector who holds up traffic on
bridges which travelers must cross in interior
parts of Nebraska. The framers of the republican
state platform ' perceived this evil and have
promised the remedy in the good roads plank.
The republican pledge commits republican can
didates not only to best efforts for road imnrnv.
ment through a fully empowered sfste highway
commission and by qualifying for our share of
the federal good roads appropriation, but adds,
"As a part of the good roads program we favor
elimination of toll bridges so that the use of the
highways from one end of the state to the other
shall be free to all.? No such plank is to be
found in the democratic platform.
The bridge between Omaha and Council Bluffs
is, and must be, an interstate crossing requiring
joint action by public authorities on both sides of
the river and possibly national legislation. We
can tackle the problem of the toll bridges over
the Platte, and other streams wholly within our
own state boundaries, through our own lawmak
ers, and "without waiting for the aid or consent
of any other nation on earth."
For an Honest Fruit Container.
Representative Reavis bids fair to perform sf
distinguished, and certain' to be appreciated, serv
ice for the householders of the land in pressing
for passage his bill to regulate the size of boxes
or baskets in which fruit is to be vended. In no
other form of merchandising has the public sub
mitted to greater imposition than in the selling
of fruits. All sorts of devices and tricks have
been used, from the elevated bottom in the berry
box to the basket with the sloping sides, each
particular container having about it something
that would deceive the purchaser. The dealer
has always consoled his conscience with the
thought that he was selling a "box" or a "basket,"
and not a stipulated quantity. A growing prac
tice, tending to overcome in some, way the diffi
culty, is to sell fruit, vegetables and the like by
the pound. This equalizes1 the bargain, and is
much nearer to exact justice than the older
method. But boxes and baskets are not readily
to be dismissed as factors in the progress of edi
bles from field to table, and so if they can be
standardized, and the buyer protected from
chicanery, it will be the better - v- : - r .

Storyette of the Day. '- , .'". .
The wounded Highlander seemed to make no
headway toward recovery. He was forever talk
ing about his "bonnie Scotland," and the idea
occurred to the doctor that a Scotch piper might
arouse his spirits. Accordingly, he found a piper,
and arranged that he should pour forth all the
gems of Scottish music the pipes were capable of
interpreting. When the doctor called the next
morning he eagerly asked the matron ,
"Did the piper turn tap?"
"He did," replied the matron. a
"And how's our Scotch patient?" .
"Oh, he's fine I never saw such a change," said
- "That's grand. That was a, fine idea of mine,"
said the delighted doctor. . '
"Yes," replied the matron, sadly, "but the other
thirty patients have all had serious relapses,"
