Hughet and His Flag.
Mr. Hughes' tour of the west has gone far be
yond experimental stages, and has developed the
definite qualities his opponents hoped it would
fall short of. Refuting to concede to him the
prestige established in former campaigns, and pre
tending to regard him as an unknown factor, the
democrats sought to convince themselves his
service on the bench has dulled his zeal as cham
pion of great issues before the people. His utter
ances have driven them from their pose of as
sumed indifference, and they are realizing that Mr.
Hughes possesses the courage that marked him
as legislator and executive, the fire and enthusiasm
of a constructive statesman, and that rare faculty
of .simple expression that assures the people their
confidence was not misplaced.
Each day he makes his views clearer as he is
given further opportunity to state his beliefs and
give emphasis to his purposes. He is not a man
of one speech, but, without abandoning any .point
of doctrine or principle already laid down, he is
steadily expanding a policy for the good of the
nation. His declaration at Los Angeles against
spoliation of the public for private gain is sup
plemental to his previously expressed views on
great public questions, the political and economic
importance of which is paramount, and to the cor
rect solution of which all efforts must inevitably
turn if progress is to be continued. This is the
Hughes "flag," which he says he unfurled at Al
bany, when governor of New York, and has never
Mr. Hughes' record as governor of New York
is an earnest of what may be expected of him in
the future, and is a strong contrast to the vacilla
tion of the president in his dealings with the ques
tions that have confronted him. Mr. Hughes is
progressive in his ideas as well as definite in his
statements. His integrity is established, and the
people know he means what he says. That is the
basis of his strength.

Shafts Aimed at Omaha
Mtn and the Horte.
From antiquity to distant that dependable
records are lost in its mists, and back into the
darkness from whence come legends that magnify
facts beyond reasonable proportion, comes knowl
edge of the close association of man and the
horse. It might appease curiosity to know when
this intimacy commenced, but it would serve no
very good purpose. The condition is one of many
easily accepted because they exist. Professor N.
S. Shater, some years ago, said the domestication
of the horse is due to his stupidity; that had he
possessed intelligence in ratio to his strength, he
had never been subjugated by man.
, . That he has been in service of man for ages Is
established by the myth of the centaurs, persisting
long after the horse was well known to the
Greeks.. In the Book of Job, that marvelous
record of human experience, the age of which is
not definitely fixed, is an apostrophe to the horse
not equalled by modern poet. Since man has kept
records he has mingled accounts of his own doings
with those of his horse, until their stories flow
together. This intimacy, legendary, historic and
existing,' stands unshaken, and although man is
casting about for means whereby he can achieve
greater things in shorter time, the horse it not to
be jostled from his place in human experience by
the vibrations of a gat-driven engine. ,
If you think so, take note of the fact that the
country has mpre horses than ever, that they are
now being bought at higher prices than ever, and
read the sport page of any newspaper where rec
ords of the track are displayed. From Job's war
horse, snorting, in his pride and lust for battle
down to this day, the line shows no break. The
automobile is useful, but it must serve many gen
erations before.it can command the affection now
lavished on the horse. .

Doniphan Enterprise:- "No Men for Paving
Delaying This Work." is the headline in the
Omaha Bee of last Saturday. If laborer! cannot
be secured in a population and travel center like
Omaha, what excuse is there for able-bodied
tramps asking for hand-outs and being fed by the
public. .There are only two reasons which we
can think of. , One is the "gall" cf the tramps,
K and the other it the ' gullibility" of the public.
' ' The Unpalatable Truth.
Some of the men Interested In the securing
of a land bank for Nebraska are beginning to
think that if Lincoln and Omalia cannot find a
meant of compromising their difference! and
one does not withdraw in favor of the other,
Iowa will get the plum. The Bryan influence at
Washington it being utilized to help Lincoln,
and with a campaign on this is not an incon
siderable factor. Senator Hitchcock, on the
other hand, is taking no part in the contest,
being a candidate for re-election and hunting no
new sources of enmity. In recent yean a feel
ing of amity between the commercial interettt
of the two cttiet hat been carefully cultivated,
and there are those who think that now would
be a good time to test the sincerity and
strength of it It hat been suggested that repre
sentatives of both citlet ought to get together,
lay down their hands and then get back of the
one with the better chance. This would be dif
ficult to accomplish, but it it not impossible
Lincoln, Journal , . .ij'.j-v '
Unfortunately, this contains for Omaha, so
far as based on our federal reserve bank exper
ience, too much unpalatable truth. The competi
tive claim and back fire from Lincoln, while not
wholly controlling, unquestionably helped to send
the reserve bank to Kansas City, although, as
everyone knows, the final decision 'was made in
response to ths political pull of Kansas City's
senator, in this case, no more than in that, can
anyone censure the Bryans for championing their
home town for any prize honestly deemed within
reach and the fact that the Omaha senator refuses
now to fight for his home town and hides behind
the pretense that he does not want to antagonize
Lincoln, cannot redound to his credit
Under ' these circumstances, if Omaha lands
the land bank, it will do ao despite the senator's
inactivity, while, if we lose it, he must take the
blame,, and all the more if it should go to Lin
coln, while the thanks of Lincoln would belong to
the Bryans. ' " B
i Mastering the Machinery of War.
The story of how the naval recruits are being
taught to handle the big guns at sea emphasizes
the need of training men for service in the de
fense of the country. Modern weajons are com
plicated, even in their simplicity, and In both
army and navy efficiency la largely a matter of
technical skill. Men mutt be well versed, not only
n the principles of mechanics, but in their broad
est application, ana must Know now to operate
and care for delicate and intricate mechanism. A
warship of today, no matter of what class, is but
an .assemblage of co-ordinated machinery, and
only by actual experience can the ability to han
dle and control these machines be acquirtd. Only
in degree does service in the army differ from
service in the navy in this rr -ri. Need of this
training has long been understood, and. the eager
ness of the young men who have .volunteered to
take up the work is a splendid tribute to the sin
cerity of their devotion. Americans are finally
fully awake to the necessity of getting ready for
self-defense, and at last understand that it is not
a question of willingness but of knowing how. -

June 28, In which he 'states that the
Ktate department - at Washington is

Whatever the international aspect of

Omaha, Aug. 22 To the Editor of
The Bee: Within the last few days
the commissioners have been handed a
petition requesting that the swimming
pool In Spring Lake park be equipped
with a four-inch feed pipe In order
that It might be drained twice ' each
week and stating that under the pres
ent conditions this pool was unsani
tary and was the source of a consid
erable sickness among Its younger pa
I believe that If the signers of the
petition had been fully informed rela
tive to the management of the pool,
the list would have been much
I am a lover of the water and. as
my home Is only five blocks from the
pool, I go In every opportunity I can
Upon Investigation I have learned
(1) that the present two-inch inlet
is flowing twenty-four hours of each
day; (2) that at 10 o'clock each night
the outlet valve is opened and the
surface of the water lowered about,
two feet. This flushes the bottom to
an extent and gives room for the
night's Inflow. (8) That on Sunday
night the pool is drained, and (4) that
Monday morning the sides and bot
tom are scrubbed, flushed with the
hose and disinfected with a solution
of coaltar creosote.
It is true It takes forty-four hours
to fill it but this gives a longer time
for the sun to shine on the bottom
and sides and the sun. Is one of the
best sterilizing agents we have.
From my own observation I believe
that considerable of the "sickness" Is
due to the sick child having spent too
much time In the water. I know that
three, four and five hours in the wa.
ter per day Is more than enough, but
that amount of time is considerably
less man some oi tne Doys spend in
I feel certain that the pool Is clean
for two further reasons:
1. The bottom never feels slimy.
2. Tou can see a diver lying on the
bottom at the outlet valve.
At how many of our beaches can
one see a diver seven feet below the
.. I thank the city authorities for tha
pleasure this pool has afforded me

onded by some of the frequenters of

The Heat of the Sun.
Bellevue, Neb., Aug. 22 To the
Editor of The Bee: 1 beg leave for
space in your paper to answer the sec
ond letter of Elliot Loomls, In which
he takes exception to my answer to
his lirst reason, "Taking the world
brer, there Is no rise in temperature
as we approach the sun." There la
no need to take exception, aa I stated
very plainly that I agreed with him
and, speaking more specifically of the
northern hemisphere, 1 sold there was
an actual lowering of temperature aa
we approached the sun. Ut course,
he understands tiat the same latitude
in the southern hemisphere becomes
warmer, and the seasons counter-balance.
It can be shown (See Moul
ton's "introduction to Celestial Me
chanics," page 148, problem 8) that
the amount of light and heat received
per area by any planet Is proportional
to the reciprocal of the product of the
major and minor axes of its orbit.
Hence when the eccentricity of the
earth's orbit decreases, the amount of
heat the world over becomes less, and
as it increases, more. The eccentric
ity of the earth's orbit is only .01677
or 8,000,000 miles in a total of 63,
000,000 and this comparatively small
distance is not enough to produce any
increase of temperature the world
over or a decrease.
Again he misinterprets my second
answer. I did not say the four outer
planets were 278 degrees below sero,
but specifically stated that they are
still probably feeble suns, which would
imply a good deal of heat Indeed.
What I did say was that that hemi
sphere of Mercury and (probably) of
Venus turned always from the sun
were at the temperature of Interstel
He says: "Particles of matter in a
state of fusion con produce no fric
tion by rubbing together to produce
more heat." I muke no mention of
"particles of matter." The sun Is
gaseous, and matter there le in Its mo
leoular state, and molecular friction
la quite enough to produce heat -
It Is a well-known truth that the
temperature at the focus of a burn
ing glass Is invariably less than that
prevailing at the source of heat Itself,
Burning glasses a yard in diameter
have been produced, which have va
porised steel, and even melted plati
numsomething our. greatest fur
naces can do only with difficulty,
i Mr. Loomls believes In a cool, dark
Interior body for the sun. Implying
a like constitution to that of the earth.
If so, how does he explain that the
density of the tun It only 1.8, taking
water u unity. That Is, the sun is
but little denser than water. Not a
very congenial environment for Intel
ligent Ufa A cool, dark Interior
doesn't harmonize with such a density.
Also how can he explain the fact
that the majority of the stars (If he
believes they are suns) have a den
sity leas than water that the material
of which they are composed is of less
tenuity than even our own atmo
sphere? And the stellar life cycle, the
"young" stars of the "Sirian" spec
tral type, bluish white In color and
evidently very hot in whose spectrum
the hydrogen lines, and they only, are
prominent; the yellow stars, the or
ange stars and down the gamut of
colors until we reach the red type
typified by An tares, evidently of com
paratively low temperature and In
whose spectrum the metallic lines are
prominent This cycle can only be
explained by decrease of heat with
sge and greater material complexity.
How can he explain It otherwise?
And lastly, Iron, the element, is va
porized only by Intense heat How can
he explain the fact that the spectro
scope shows abundant evidence of
iron in the vaporous state In the sun ?
If Mr. Loomls wishes, I can cite
mere reasons to uphold my side, of
the argument but It Is unfair to take
up so much space In The Bee for
something in which the majority of
its readers are perhaps not interested.
So I wculd solicit correspondence bv
letter with Mr. Loomls for a continu
ance of this (to me) Interesting dis
cussion. WILLIAM SMITH.

O GIVE ME THE FARM.
O iive me the farm, the countryside,
Where God aeema near, where aklea re
Where Mother-nature relfne complete,
The imetl of growing thlngi Is sweet.
Where peace and unfeigned Joy abide.
O alve" me the farm, the sunlit fields.
Where each day's toll contentment yields.
It's acres broad deep woods serene.
The wav-e'de flower of Heaven's sheen,
All splendid things each day reveals.
O give me the farm where a'l conspire.
To draw my soul, mv sr.l lt higher.
Where Faith Inhabits f Ids and hills,
Where the silence of the wvctlng thrills.
The glow on eastern skies Inspire.
O give me the farm, there 1tr me stay.
And revel In the wild bl'ds lay.
Let me till God's soli with reverent
While my muscles harden, my chest ex
pands, And a perfect freedom Is mine alway.
