Nebraska's State Fair.
The Bee this morning gives considerable
space to the Lincoln and the Nebraska State
fair, which opens its annual exposition on Mon
day next. The State fair has long since passed
the mere exhibition stage, and has become a real
exposition, at which the best of all that is con
nected directly or indirectly with the agricultural
industry is placed on display under such condi
tions as not only show its merits and advantages,
but give opportunity for critical and technical
comparison. Results as well as methods and means
are thus contrasted, and the careful investigator
finds that display is more than ever educational
in its every aspect In this way the fair is
serving the end for which it was instituted. The
management, realizing its obligation, has wisely
provided for entertainment and amusement as well
as education, and the pleasure seeker will find
much to meet his desires on the grounds. The
Nebraska fair has steadily increased in importance
ana scope year after year,tiU it has reached a
point commensurate with the greatness of the
state. As it has grown, so have the people corrie
to realize its value, and the support it has had has
been encouragingly liberal. The outlook for the
present year is for a greater display in all depart
ments that ever before, and the experts prophesy
a new mark in State fair history.
How It Affects the Public.
The ordinary routine of life is already thrown
Into confusion by the impending strike of the
railroad men. Preparations being hurriedly made
to meet the emergency show how serious will be
the full effect of the disturbance to social order
that will follow when the threatened interruption
of transportation is realized. Inconvenience will
certainly be entailed and perhaps suffering, and
many makeshifts must perforce be adopted that
life may go on as nearly as possible in its ordinary
Above all considerations,. the great mass of
the people will not be able to understand why
combinations of men should have the cower to
inus upset sll order, and to disarrange the whole
movement of commerce and industry. Opinion
will divide ss to which side of the strife has the
greater show of right, but it will be unanimous
on the one point, that some method should be
deviled to prevent either from venting its dis
pleasure on the bystander, which in this instance
is the public that depends on the continuous ooer-
stion of the rsilroads.
No function of law as it stands can prevent
the strike; invoking the equity power of the
court is likely to be as futile as was Canute's
order to the tide. Congress is slready considering
me prooiem, out this holds no hope for oerma-
nent relief through any legislation so hurriedlv
made into law as would be necessary to meet the
present situation. It is not out of reason, though,
to expect that some way can be found to limit and
restrict both managers and men in their capacity
as public servants, to the end that they will not
again be able to lay the whole people at a dis
advantage. Reason mult rule, and' not the will
one or the other of the factions into which the
railroad service is st present divided.

The Law and the Strike.
A restraining order Issued by one of the iuda-ea
of the Douglas county district court against the
conductors' brotherhood is likely to bring on the
first real test of the anti-injunction section of the
Clayton law. This forbids the issuance of a re
straining order or injunction without a hearing-.
and is primarily intended to limit the' power of
judges to make exparte orders in labor disputes.
i ne case in point presents no feature that is un
familiar; A member of the conductors' brother.
hood asks that the organization be restrained
from calling a strike, setting up that his personal
rignts and interests are placed in jeopardy, that
he must either give up his employment or forfeit
nil membership in the organization, neither of
which he cares to do.
In the famou Taff Vale case, from the English
courts, it was held that the Railway Servants'
union had no power to coerce a member, nor could
it use funds collected from him to prosecute a
strike, for Itself or for another organization, with
out his consent. The effect of this decision is to
deprive the union of all its potency, so long as s
single member can be found who objects to the
tourse of the majority. Following the Taff Vale
decision,, the English courts also forbade exoen
diture of union funds to maintain in Parliament
members elected to represent trade unions. Par
liament enacted laws which relieves the unions
from tht conditions established bv the courts.
The Clayton lw aims to relieve the orcaniza-
tions of'workingmen in the United States from
a situation thst has grown but of the use of the
equity function of the court. It forbids the
issuance of ex parte restraining orders, snd also
declarei that "human labor is not s commodity
or article of commerce." It will be interesting to
follow this Douglas county case to its conclusion.
Von Hindenberg Chief of Staff.
The elevation of Field Marshal von Hinden
berg to be chief of staff of the German army is
but snother step in the remarkable progress of a
man who was slated for the discard but a few
yean ago. It is related that Von Hindenberg
was marked for permanent retirement before the
war broke out, and was retained in service only
after he had made a personal appeal to the em
peror. The old general and his East Prussian
lakes were a standing jest among the younger
members of the great war machine, but events
have proved him to be the bulwark of Germany
against the Russian invasion. Without Von Hin
denberg and tha swamps into which he directed
the first incursion of the Cossacks, the whole
story of the present war had been different. His
defense of Prussia, and his subsequent onslaught
that drove tha Russians back into their own soil
ar? the most notable achievements of Germany in
the war so far. On neither front has another
commander accomplished as definite results aa has

No' Lowering of Taxation.
Lincoln, Aug. 27. To the Editor of
rne nee: i.ei no one d aeceivea oy
the false alarms blown by the state
house bugles that taxes of the peo
ple of Nebraska are to be reduced for
the current year or the blennium.
Just the contrary will occur. Why?
Because the asseefted valuation of
property In Nebraaka la increased by
$20,000,000 or about one-twenty-fourth
and the local levies or rates
for county, city and school! will be
higher throughout the state. The re
duction of aeven-tentha of a mill in
the levy for state purposes aa every
well-informed taxpayer knows, the
smallest Item In his total tax Is a
"mere drop In the bucket." This "sop
thrown to Cerberus" will deceive only
the superficial and the unwary minor
ity, but the remaining great majority
of wide-awake taxpayers and men of
affairs will take swift vengeance on
the administration responsible for
That local rates will be Increased
much more than state taxes will be
decreased is well illustrated In the
case of Lancaster county and Lin
coln especially. This county's as
sessed valuation is nearly $2,000,000
greater than In 1915 or one-twelfth
higher. To bring the matter home
to the taxpayer we will giva a few
figures. The poor man's castle, which
waa assessed in lew at $1,200, will
now be valued at $1,300 for pur
poses of taxation; I. e., he will pay
one-twelfth more taxes on the home
which he ia in all probability acquir
ing on the installment plan by means
of his hard-earned aavlngs.
The foregoing conclusion that
taxes will be at least one-twelfth
higher is baaed on the assumption
that local rates or levies will remain
the same aa In 1816. In Lincoln the
Increase In achool taxes will prob
ably be so much aa to more than off
set any possible decrease due to a
lowering of the county levy, which
has been predicted. .
uur benevolent board ol assess
ment (and lnequalisatton) IS com
posed of disciples of Colbert whose
first principle of taxation was to sluck
as many feathers from the goose as
is consistent wttn tne least amount of
squawk. Such attempts to apply the
methods of France's "anclen regime"
to our state will reproduce the Euro
pean conditions of 1783 in Nebraska
and sweep the schemers on the board
of assessment; namely, Morehead,
Beckman, Hall and Smith, from the
stage of public affairs. '

Therefore, devise a plan for both un

a military ward of the government for

where they should receive Complete

This Is the idea aa short as I can
state it. It means that when the gov

twenty years of such policy and no
nation on earth could oppose us In
either military or material progress.
Such a course making attendance at
these national colleges obligatory on
all, rich or poor, would also teach
true democracy in life, and equality.
The obstacles are, of course, "cus

end of questions. But it could be done

And the expense would be largely a
shifting of state and private expense
to government shoulders. These things
are all detail. If we only adopt the
Idea that this nation will give all it

there need be no fear for our fu
