Progress in Chemistry
. The world war has been the cause of many
evils, but it has done at least one good thing
for the United States in helping it to attain its
chemical independence. In that connection the
j advances made in the manufacture of high ex
plosives and of deleterious gases will occur
" readily to the mind. Aside, however, from the
, military point of view, the" need for certain
chemicals used in the practical arts began to be
felt very acutely when the supply was cut off
soon after the commencement of the war in
' 1914. Thrown on their own resources, Amer
ican chemists proceeded to experiment and in
I comparatively short time were able not only
; to manufacture dyes, but also to put to use
many rare materials, for the supply of which
in ante-bellum days Ihis country was almost
wholly dependent on Germany and Austria.
For example, the rare earths from which
- cerium, thorium and mesothorium are derived
come principally from India, Brazil and the
Scandinavian countries, but the Germans had
i seenred a well-nigh monopolistic control of the
handling of these elements by importing the raw
' material and putting it through the processes
lecessary to make it a commercial asset They
; then shipped it to all parts of the world, includ
ing the United States. For the last year or
two American industrial chemistry has made
wonderful stride by processing this raw ma
terial at home and thereby saving considerable

To the women who will vote for president
for the first timt in 1920 Chairman Hays of the
republican national committee has a message.
That he voices the sentiment and purpose of
the republican party is not to be doubted. He
The republican party offers the women
verything we offer the men. The only just
rule for a political party is that the rights of
participation in the management of the par
ty's affairs must be and remain equally sacred
and sacredly equal.
To thli all members of the republican party
will subscribe. It is a fundamental, vital prin
ciple of the institution. All its members are on
the same footing with regard to the share each
has in the affairs of the party, each contributing
In service and support to the success of the or
ganization, 'which stands firmly for that sacred
equality of all before the law on which the re
public is founded.
The time is here for the wiping out of all
artificial differences within the party, so that
all republicans can again march under the same
banner, keeping step to the same tune, and ani
mated by a single impulse, that of giving the
country the best government humanly possible.
No new place is to be made for the women t
Those who have hitherto voted know that they
are members of the great political party whose
principles meet their approval. . Those who
have newly come into the franchise may be as
sured that they are welcome and will share
alike with all others. They are not to be set
apart in a division by themselves, but will come
into the great body of voters and be given full
recognition from the first.
Chairman Hays expresses another sentiment
that deserves consideration. "I do not ask that
all women become republicans," he says. "To
which party you belong is of less consequence
than that you belong to some party, that you
seek the truth, find it out and then act, and act
continually." When the women have sought
out and discovered the truth, it will not be the
republican party that will suffer.
Is Bryan a Nebraskan?
Has William Jennings Bryan forfeited his
right to be classed as a Nebraskan? Not such
a long time ago he was commended to the
voters of this state because he was "a good
neighbor," and his residence was not ques
tioned. Since then quite a bit of water has
run under the bridge. The great commoner
has accumulated so many homes it keeps him
busy visiting them, all, but the faithful have
always insisted that he belongs to us, and we
know he comes here to obtain his seat in the
democratic conventions. But here is a repudia
tion of him. In the New York Times this item
The New York Daughters of Nebraska the
other day, at a reception in the home of the
president, Mrs. Dexter D: Ashley, 346 Lex
ington avenue, expressed themselves as not
being interested in any future political move
taken by William Jennings Bryan. The presi
dent of the society said that she "did not wish
to talk about Mr. Bryan at all."
Dr. William J. Taylor, who at one time
lived across the street from Mr. Bryan at Lin
cold, said that he no longer considered him as
a Nebraskan, and believed that was the gen
eral attitude of most persons from that west
ern state. When one of the women was
asked if the Nebraska society planned to give
Mr. Bryan a reception when he comes to New
York, she answered: "I have not heard that
he is coming, and I hope that I don't,"
Who are these "Daughters of Nebraska,"
that they presume to tear from the peerless that
right of designation to which he himself has
clung and on which so many devoted admirers
in this outland of America viewed from Lex
ington avenue lovingly hang? No longer a
Nebraskan? Shucks! Maybe those dear women
who now make their homes in Gotham are not
authorized to speak for Nebraska on this point.
The Legion and Berger.
The Bee has a letter from a man who says
he is a member of the American Legion, pass
ing through on his way to Denver. He excepts
to the action taken by the local Legionaires at
their meeting last Friday, on the ground that it
amounts to an entrance into partisan politics.
The protest then voiced by a member of the
Legion is renewed. It is very plain that the
writer, in common with the young man who
raised his voice at the meeting, does not en
tirely comprehend the situation as regards the
case of Victor L. Berger. Berger's politics
have nothing to do" with his expulsion from the
house of representatives. He sat there once as
a socialist, voted as such and was listened to
as such. Meyer London has had a similar ex
pcrienre. Berber was expelled from the house
of representatives because of dislfiyal conduct
during the war. He is under a sentence of
twenty years in the peni'.entJary because of that
conduct. He is unrepentant, but defiantly re
peats his offense, and asserts he will continue
to do so. No amount of explanation can pal
liate the action of the Wisconsin voters who
have affronted the entire United States by their
action in voting for this man, who impudently
scoffs at the government and all it stands for.
The American Legion has shown only its pa
triotic spirit in demanding that Berger be de-.
nied a seat in the house. It is scarcely possible,
though, that such a request is necessary. The
house is not at all likely to stultify its record.
Air Mail and Aviation.
Earnest advocates of the extension of gov
ernment support to aviation are fond of depict
ing how we as. a nation have lagged behind
Europe in the matter of aerial navigation. They
point to the transatlantic flight, the flight from
England to Australia, and to our unreadiness
in the war as proofs of neglect. All of these
things seem to support their contention, but
against it may be set the fact that no nation
has made greater practical use of the flying
machine 'than the. United States. When the
first regular air mail service was established be
tween New York and Washington a step for
ward was taken. It began the adaptation of
the airplane to commercial uses. Steadily the
service has been extended, until now it reaches
Omaha on its transcontinental course. For
the time this city is the western terminal of
the longest air-mail route in the world, daily
passage on regular schedule between here and
New York, now possible and only awaiting the
passage of another twenty-four hours to be for
mally established, exceeding by many miles in
length and by many pounds in weight the ef
fort of another nation at similar accomplish
ment Aviation is not being neglected to its
lasting hurt in America, but is really being fos
tered along practical lines, to a point where the
industry will stand on its own feet, and not de
pend on government aid or military uses for its
Revolting the, Moral Sense
, From the Minneapolis Tribune.
The sheriff of Cook county, Illinois, Ignor
ing (he plea of Governor Lowden and other
high-minded citizens, men and women, hanged
a murderer in the Chicago jail, with 200 othet
prisoners as involuntary witnesses. He ex
plained that he wished, through the gruesome
spectacle, to produce upon these prisoners a
moral effect that, he believed, would redound
to their good and henct to the good of the
community. -
To put into practice a theory of hi, this ex
ecutant of the law took an entirely undue lot
upon himself. He violated the spirit, if not the
letter, of an Illinois law. He failed to take suf
ficiently into consideration the moral sense of
the people' of his city and state.
Time was in Illinois and other itates when
legal executions were more or less public spec
tacles, but that was long ago. In this more en
lightened age it has been the custom under the
laws of most states to carry out capital sen
tences in the presence of a limited number of
persons, including the sheriff, his deputies, an
attending clergyman, an examining physician,
visiting official and representatives of news
papers or press associations. The purpose has
been to avoid, rather than to cater to, publicity..
Reputable newspapers generally respect the
purpose that underlies these laws. They do
not, as in other days, spread minute descrip
tions of hangings and electrocutions all over
the front page as feeders of morbid curiosity
and sentiment. This Chicago hanging "lesson"
is repugnant to the public sense of decency and
propriety. It smacks of frontier days. It is a
reversion to obsolete ideas.
Even if it be granted that the Cook county
sheriff is correct in his statement that there is
too much coddling of criminals these days; if
it be true, as he says, thatwell meaning but
misguided reformers and sociologists are doing
more harm than good in promulgating their
ideas of the proper treatment of criminals, it
does not follow ,that he should take upon him
self arbitrarily as a public official the doing of
that which revolts the moral and social sense
of a whole city, state or county.
That the correctness of his theory was not
borne out in practice in this case seems to have
been established by the hooting and cat-calls of
the unwilling witnesses who were more inter
ested in having breakfast than in the modus
operandi of putting a murderer legally to death
in the name of retributive justice.
The 1920 Census
The years since 1910 have seen great world
events directly affecting the census of 1920, now
in progress. The Tripolitan and Balkan wars
and the great conflict with Mitteleuropa have
so blocked immigration and set up eastward
counter currents that an increment possibly
smaller than that of 1910 is looked for. Yet if
that increment should shrink from 16,000,000 to
14,000,000, what a record will remain 1
Few estimates of the population" of the
United States proper fall much below 106,000,
000 and in this swiftly swelling mass the pro
portion of foreign-born is much lower
than it was 10 years ago. German
scholars should have warned their war
lords in 1917 that they were affronting a nation
more numerous than that which Spain had
fought by an addition greater than the entire
Austrian empire a nation more nearly native
American than it had been for years.
In other respects than numbers the change
is startling. National wealth has so leaped up
wardboth in fact and in appearance, owing
to the marking up of assets that most esti
mates are probably too timid. Bold ones who
guess at $300,000,000,000 may be nearer right.
In 20 years the value of farm products and de
posits in banks, unfailing indices, have quadru
pled. The value of a single year's manufac
tured product exceeds the entire wealth of any
second class nation and some of the .first-class
ones. The epoch-making changes in shipping
and in national gold-holdings are indices of
Unless such bewildering developments shall
be accompanied by a sterner sense of public and
private duty and of responsibility for our broth
ermen in every continent, they are a source of
weakness, inviting cupidity from without and
extravagance and class conflict within. No
census can measure or assess the American
spirit This, too, we may hope not unreason
ably, will continue to share in the growth of

The Census Taker.
"Here boy, what'a your name?"
"Hunting Eye."
"Where dp you live?"
"In the North Woods."
"Well you're sort of out of my
territory. If you want to get in on
this census, you'll have to get back
up there."
The curiosity of the Indian boy
was now aroused. This man had
started to question him while he
was peacefully standing in -front of
the house of his friend, the mayor,
and he wanted to know the reason.
"What is the census?" he asked.
"It is the counting of the people."
"Oh, that ought to be easy."
"Well, it isn't. It is a big job.
The government has many thou
sands of men and women working
on it. You see the United States
government must know, from time
to time, how many people there
are in the country. So every 10
years, a count is taken of them.
"But the government needs to
know many things besides the mere
number .of people. So instead of
merely counting noses, the census
takers find out a lot of other in
formation about each person. You
can see from looking at this form.
For instance, we find out whether
the person has any property, his
age, color, whether he is married,
if he was born here, if he can read
and write, his native language, his
occupation, whether he works for
himself or for some one else. All
of these things it is important for
the government to know."
"What is done with this?"
"The census is taken under the
direction of the census bureau at

At night outside my window la a rush

Aa It the trees and hedgea and all In

Were struggling in their slumber to reach
the time that bringa
The glamour and the wonder and the
gladness of new springs.
The mystic sounds of night-time, the
creak of homeward carts.
The whistling of a drover,' the beat of
hidden hearts,
Tha birth-cry of a babe whs on life'a

Tha aoba of lonely mourners aa aome loved

doors and windows tight,
In dressing gown and slippers, the old

The favorite book, the fireside oh, com

Indeed, what Is more peaceful than -a

And yet outside my window seems to
come a whir of wlnga.
As If to stir my being with desire for

With yearning for the promise that
pulsing morrow brings,
The enrhHnlment and the rapture, the
fulfillment of new springs!
