Look Behind the Platform.
The democratic Columbus Telegram appears to
be greatly distressed because the platform adopted
by the democrats to go before the people" of Ne
braska this year is silent on three subjects that
it thinks should have been included. We main
tain that the platforms of all the parties are
plenty long enough even though they might have
readily been made to cover many more points.
Political platforms have rightly come to be looked
on as mere outlines of party policy on vital issues
rather than detailed programs. Formal declara
tions are good guide posts for the voters so far
as they go, but they must be accepted with due
allowance for the general reputation of the party
behind the platform for veracity, fidelity to ob-
igations and capacity for performance. The best
possible promise from some one with a known
record of repudiated pledges or proved to be in
competent to deliver the goods is not worth
much. It is dependability and performance that
count, or should count, at much as platform pro

Ord Quiz: The democrats are iust now fond
of quoting Lincoln's saying about swapping horses
while crossing a stream: but there are exceptions
to all rules. He is a chump who would not swap
if the horse he was riding balked, or became weak
and wabbly and showed signs of Ivine down with
him in midstream. At this time there are strong
symptoms of determination on the part of the
; voters of this country to do some horse swapping

Blaming It Onto Electricity,
Some entertaining diversion is afforded by
the views of s correspondent, who maintains that
the sun does not send out heat, his belief, appar
ently, being that the cause of those blistering days
during July was either. a superabundance or a
misbehavior of electricity. Another eminent
Omahan, who has amused and edified the public
by hit wireless manipulations, comes forth with
the word that hay fever is occasioned by elec
tricity. And who is going to say them nay? A
few years ago we had tome definite notions about
tuch thingt, and had even evolved tome "laws"
to govern them. Then came radium in the wake
of helium, and between the pair they upset all
ideas of matter and natural forces and their laws,
and required that scientists hastily construct a
new cosmos. This was built on electricity, and
there you have it.
In present day science, the electron is the
basis of the ion, and from them we build up. So,
if electricity it the primal cause, why may it not
be the real reason for the sun's so-called heat, the
irritating element that makes the hay fever victim
sneeze, as well as the active agent in other forms
of good and ill in life? We know it used to be
the thunder that turned the milk sour in the pans,
and it was lightning that caused the thunder, and
now we know electricity causes lightning. Thus,
gradually, we are bringing home the underlying
influence, and with confidence may we blame it
all on electricity. And, so long as we know no
more than we do of electricity, its whys and
wherefores, we are safe in this.
Fending Off Trouble.
Premier Asquith gracefully fends off further
trouble for the British government by proposing
to extend the life of the present parliament until
the end of May next. In doing this he is able to
evade the complexity involved in the proposed
extension of franchise to include all toldiert in
the field and all munition workers. This proposal
is complicated in tome degree by the presence of
woman in the munition factories, and the awkward
fact that it would be ungallant, at least, to permit
her to assist in saving the country by doing a
man's work in the mills and otherwhere, and at
the same time deny her full participation in the
shaping of the government the hat to generously
defended. Mr. Atquith sayt this is not the time
to take up the discussion of the franchise, and
perhaps he's right, to far as Great Britain is con
cerned, but he will find It waiting for him in May,
just as it Is today.
Raiting the Revenut.
With the appropriation! totalling well up to
two billiont of dollars in tight, the democrats in
congress are sorely perplexed as to how to secure
the income that will equal their extravagant out
go. The administration revenue bill, just agreed
to by the senate eaucut, is a wonderful patchwork
of makeshifts and expedients. Its coy and coquet
tish approach to protection, in the form of a duty
on dyestuffs, It amusing enough, and is rendered
the more so by the sudden shying noted in the
amendment to suspend the duty during the war.
This will permit the Deutschland to come again
and again, at often at it likes, with its cargo of
dyet, and enter them duty free, to the discourage
ment of the industry now sought to be established.
Stamp taxes and surtaxes are inextricably con
fused in the measure, and a special grab is made
for a ahare of the profits on munitioni contracts.
For some reason the framert of the measure over
looked a provision that would make the gamblers
in grain share their winnings with Uncle Sam, but
this it about the only thing the bill does not in
clude. The bill, as it now standi, may, if passed,
produce revenue, but it will certainty provide
work. It it chiefly valuable as indicating the
democratic method of going about an important
undertaking. The president made definite recom
mendations to congress on the subject of revenue
in December, and the senate gett around to con
sider them in August. At least, there is no sign
that it has ceased to be the greatest "deliberative"
body in the world.
What answer will the voters give to this party.
which it now atking for endorsement of its record,
just being made up?
Warning Call That Should Be Heeded.
The collapse of that old Capitol hotel at Lin
coln, with serious, If not fatal, results to several
victims, is seized on by the Lincoln Journal as a
warning call for a roundup of dangerous tumble
down places. The mishap carries the same sug
gestion for Omaha as it does for Lincoln. It is
a good deal better to order old shacks demolished
and removed than to wait for them to fall of their
own accord at the wrong time. Buildings deter
iorate steadily unless kept in good repair, and the
fact that they have ones passed inspection does
not mean that they would ttitl stand the tett
A little stricter and more strenuous enforcement
of the building laws would not hurt in Omaha
any more than it would in Lincoln..
President Wilson's apologists say hs is being
attacked for appointing democrats to office. It it
not the appointment of democrats that puts him
in bad, but the kind of democrats he has been
appointing, and in most cases he cannot excuse
himself, as he can here In Omaha,' by shoving the
responsibility for an obnoxious selection over
onto our democratic senator.
The new British loan, offered to New York,
carries higher terms than the preyiout one nego
tiated by the allies. The loan it to run two ytan
at 5 per cent, and it offered at 99. Adding the cott
of placing the paper, the deal approximates 6 per
cent money, an extraordinary rate for the erst
while financial giant of the world.

Ex-Governor Shaw on Provincial Business.
New York. August 14. To the Editor of
The Bee: Speaking at. Detroit, President
Woodrow Wilson said some pleasing things,
and when viewed in the light of well known
facts they 'become very amusing things.
"America, of all countries in the world,
has been timid and has not until within
the last two or three yean provided itself
with the fundamental instrumentalities for
playing a large part In the trade of the
world. America, which ought to have had
the broadest vision of any nation, has
raised up an extraordinary number of
provincial thinkers, men who thought provin
cially about business, men who thought that
the United States was not ready to take its
competitive part in the struggle for the
peaceful conquest of the world."
James J. Hill conceived a transportation
company that should circumnavigate the
globe and was progressing rapidly, when
the government interfered and prevented
the consummation of his dream. Does the
president libel the memory of James J. Hill
as a provincial thinker and actor, or does
he criticise the government of the United
States for the part it took?
E. H. Harriman conceived a transporta
tion system to extend from New York City
to the Pacific coast, southward across Mex
ico, across the Isthmus, across Central
America and across South America, but the
government, supplemented by death, pre
vented consummation. Will the president
please designate the object of his criticism T
Is it Mr. Harriman or the government?
The Standard Oil company did circum
navigate the earth. It conveyed Its products
across the continent in tank cars and pipe
lines, carried it beyond all seas in tank
steamers, took it pretty much the entire
length of the Andes mountain ranges, on
the backs of caravans' of llamas, 2,000
miles up the Yanktzee river by boat and
thence for a thousand miles inland on the
backs of coolies to the very heart of China,
but the courts dissolved it because other
concerns had not done the same thing.
Shall it enlarge and extend its operations
or quit entirely? Will the president be
The International Harvester company un
dertook to carry American perfected agri
cultural implements across all seas and un
der all skies and to anticipate the injunc
tion with which the president closed the
speech referred to, "Go out and sell goods
that will make the world more comfortable
and more happy and convert them to the
principles of America." Does President
Wilson approve or disapprove of the Inter
national Harvester company, or does he ap
prove of the efforts of the government to
limit its operations?
The United States Steel Corporation
claims to have sought fn a quiet and unob
trusive way to be unpruvmcial and, finding
it impossible to compete in overseas trans
portation against subsidized ships of other
countries ever ready to carry domestic
freight at nominal' rates, and frequently
gratis, charging extra for conveying Amer
ican products, purchased ships that it might
put the products of American labor on the
western coast of South America, up into
Alaska and Vancouver, but it, too, found
itself in the tolls of judicial proceedings.
The fact that it was able to show itself
guiltless did not prevent the government,
under the direction of our orator president,
from prosecuting an appeal to force the
Steel Corporation to be provincial in both
thought and conduct. Will the president
square his actions in the premises with
his speech at Detroit, or square future
speeches with his acts?
The great packing houses and the United
Fruit company have each sought to be
provincial, but the former has not escaped
the courts, nor has the latter avoided the
watchful eye of the ubiquitous army of high
salaried inspectors, investigators and prose
cutors. I speak of these things not to question
the wisdom of the American people for hav
ing demanded governmental insistence that
American business men must and shall be
provincal, but to suggest that Mr. Wilson
must have failed to note the ever present
restlessness and chafing caused thereby. I
suggest that if the author of the "New
Freedom In Business" is as anxious that
American business, men shall take a large
part in the world, as his speech would indi
cate, and if he is willing to grant immunity
from criminal prosecution to those who seek
to follow his suggestions this is a splendid
time to publicly announce that policy. Abso
lute frankness on his part should have great
Influence in the campaign.
