Announcement by Chairman nays ot a
committee to formulate the issues oh which the
republican party will make its appeal to the
voters this year discloses a representative group
of citizens. It is not a "hand-picked" body, nor
a haphazard assemblage of names selected to
meet an exigency. Men and women familiar
with the situation and needs of the country, and
against whose loyal devotion to it no word
may be said, are asked to calmly consider and
dispassionately decide on the pledges to be
made by the next republican national con
For the republican platform consists of
pledges, not mere promises. The leaders of the
party accept endorsement by the voters as
commission to carry out the policies announced
at the convention. This is the main point of
difference between the two great parties. Mr.
Bryan scouts at the Hays plan for securing in
advance of the convention's assembly a definite
outline for the platform. He derides the
thought of asking the great gathering of dele
gates to sign on the dotted line, and insists that
platforms should be brought in white hot from
the forge, and hammered out by delegates
fresh from the people.
This is all very nice as a Bryan talking point,
but those who are in any sense familiar with
democratic practice know how far away it is
from what actually takes place. At Kansas
City, for example, "Dick" Metcalfe pulled from
his pocket a document that had been carefully
prepared in the office of the Commoner, and
"the delegates fresh from the people" gulped it
whole, subscribing on the dotted line line with
out demur. Many times has Mr. Bryan foisted
his "paramounts" on his party after similar
fashion. "Marse Henry" Watterson, in his re
cent book of reminiscences, discloses a few
secrets of the platform committee x room at
democratic national conventions. "Delegates
fresh from the people" have very little to do
with preparing the collections of resounding
phrases, aimed at expediency and few intended
to be translated into action.
The Hays plan is a good one, for it will
produce deliberate, intelligent action, presenting
a platform that will appeal to reason and not
to passion or prejudice,' embodying principles
and solemn pledges that are to be redeemed.
Sell the Bonds to the State!
Bonds to be issued by Douglas county to
the amount of $822,000 have been rejected by
certain bond buying houses, certain technical
questions as to the, validity of the issue having
been raised. The sincerity of the questions is
doubted, the real reason for the refusal of the
bidders to complete the bargain probably being
the change in the money market That the
county is solvent and that the proposed issue
falls well within the limit of indebtedness is
plain to all. The authorities are now going to
the state treasurer, where they should have
gone in the first place, with a view to having
the securities added to the permanent invest
ment of the school fund. Properly, all Ne
braska bond issues ought to be first offered to
the state of Nebraska, for under the safeguards
that surround them, no better investment is
possible for tne permanent school funds. It is
not necessary that the state be given any spe
cial advantage in the matter, but sale at Lincoln
ought to be the first and not -the final resbrt
when a loan is sought by a Nebraska county.
"Out of the Mouths of Babes." '
A singular issue of the Thrift week cam
paign is that prizes offered for the best letters'
on thrift are awarded to a boy and girl of IS,
while a youth of the mature age of 18 is
accorded the palm for having produced the best
essay on "Is Marriage Possible on $125 a
Month." Some of the elders, who have tasted
a little deeper of life's cup, will perhaps smile
at the youthful enthusiasm here displayed. "He
jests at scars who never felt a wound," and
those who have been seamed from head to foot
by contact with the stern realities of life may
be lenient concerning the youngsters who march
so bravely forth to take up the combat in their
turn. We are reminded of one poem by the
late Widow Bedott, who headed her verse,
"K. K. (Kan't Kalkilate)," one stanza of which

Yet "out of the mouths of babes and suck

and surely can be applied by all, both old and
young, with profit
Messages from Other Worlds.
Without the semblance of dogmatism or
pretense of finality, we may with open mind ap
proach Guglielmo Marconi's latest venture, that
of catching messages from Mars or some other
supposedly inhabited planet As a source1 of
mental gymnastics, it is about as promising as
anything that has been offered the common peo
ple lately. Einstein's theory is for the elect, the
esoteric circles, while Conan Doyle and Oliver
Lodge have brought forth nothing new, their
excursions into the world beyond carrying them
no farther than our own sphere. But Marconi
is going to put us into touch with denizens of
worlds around us, who are jiot yet disembodied
spirits. Here is a field for speculation in which
the active mind may romp like a colt at pasture.
Ground and lofty tumbling of ideas is permitted,
and room is open for all. Go as far as you like,
but do not be disappointed if some day you are
brought back to earth with a thud. In the mean
time some of us will wonder why Marconi does
not adopt a modern way of spelling "Bill," and
how the Martians ever got hold of the Morse
Black Hills "trail blazers" missed Colonel
Roosevelt, Seth Bullock and John Brennan from

some other of their kind. It must have been

Municipal Financing
From the Dally Bond Buyer.
Financing the permanent improvements of
American states, counties, cities and smaller
municipalities in the calendar year 1919 ab
sorbed aoout $.iu.uw,uuu ot tne tunas ot Ameri
can investors. This is a larger amount by over
$250,000,000 than the total borrowings of this
character in any previous year and is in re
markable comparison with the total for 1918,
viz: $262,818,844. However, a study of the
statistics presented below discloses the inter
esting fact that the amount borrowed by states
and municipalities in the two years 1918 and
1919 was little in excess of the borrowing in
1916 and 1917, or in 1915 and 1916. In other
words, the tremendous volume of public
financing effected during the year just closed
has simply made up for the curtailment brought
about in 1918, through the agency of the Capital
Issues Committee, as a war measure.
In 1918, it will be recalled, no state, county
or town could issue securities for the purpose
of building a road or bridge or school without
obtaining the consent of the Capital Issues
Committee. To obtain this consent, it was
necessary to convince the Committee of the
urgent necessity of the improvement. The re
sult was, of course, an immediate curtailment
of public construction activities and, incident
ally, a vast reduction in the volume of public
bond issues. The Capital Issues Committee
suspended operations on December 31, 1918, in
view of the signing of the armistice. Immedi
ately states and municipalities took up their
greatly delayed public works programs, involv
ing the issuance of millions of dollars' worth
of bonds.
When everything is considered, it Is surpris
ing that the past year has not witnessed even
greater expenditures for work of this kind. Un
doubtedly the scarcity of labor, materials and
transportation is the only reason why another
three or four hundred millions were not ob
tained through the sale of bonds and invested
in city halls and electrtic light and power
plants. There was certainly no limit in 1918 to
the amount of municipal bonds the investment
markets would have absorbed and it is clear
from the records that only a'small part of the
bonds authorized by voters and legislatures
have actually been offered for sale. The total
borrowings, $748,205,783, while larger than
those of any previous year, do not represent
the amount of improvements that this sum
would have purchased a few years ago, which
is a fact of some importance when considering
the tendency of municipalities to increase the
volume of bond issuance.
An outstanding feature of present day mu
nicipal finance is the good roads movement
which has swept the country in the last few
years and has been taken up by the public with
the greatest energy and enthusiasm since the
war, due, no doubt, to the war-time demonstra
tion of the economy, efficiency and profitable
ness of shipping by motor truck over good
roads. The construction of new highways ac
counts for a substantial part of the financnig of
the counties in 1919 and will in coming years
keep the market supplied with millions of dol
lars' worth of bonds, the nroceeds of the sale
of which will pay for additional roads and their

The Miserly Squirrel
The squirrel is a thriftv soul and alwavs
seems to have the rainy day we are admonished
to save for in mind. Our squirrel came out of
his warm nest where we supposed him to be
hibernating one cold, snowy day last week and,
thinking he looked hungry, we flung out on the
hard crust of snow an English walnut Mr.
Squirrel pounced upon it and, after examining
its soundness thoroughly, made off with it and
buried it just as he does in the autumn. We
flung out another, and another, varied by a soft
shelled almond or two, all of which were laid
away for that rainy day. As he still looked
hungry to our benevolent eves, we cracked a
couple of English walnuts and again flung them
torth. And he was hungry I He ate them all
and sniffed around the shells for more. He
looked up at us beseechingly with his skinny
little paw on his stomach, as much as to say,
"My, that went right to the spot." So we gave
him some more, but all the time we had a feel
ing that he was carrying the saving habit too
tar and that in his case Anthony Hope s defini

of The Bee: As I am an old reader

We remember how Shakespeare
said one might make himself as
chaste as ice only to become the tar

innocent suffer with the guilty. In

sure sign of decadence, inasmuch as
inquisitorial rulings are provocative
of the very thing they are designed
against 'While the New YorkWorld
legally cries: "Down with the con
stitution," because of violations
thereof, we might go a step farther
and exclaim: "Down with the Bi

raign Holy Writ as the chief cause
of sedition, because it is the heaviest
piece of literature extant when it
comes to using symbols, words, etc.,
against the overthrow of nations.

American lawmakers would profit
more in the matter of vision if they

Against Military Training.

make me write these lines. It says:
"All Youth Must Take Army

coming to this? Did we have war
and find it so pleasant that we want
more of it? which is all this army
course can mean or why military
training? Our forefathers left their
home country to evade this military
training. My father and my hus
band left there also to escape from

"Under the pavement, there is al
ways a service sewer a big clay
tile pipe to carry sewage from
buildings with a branch of lateral
leading to each building. There is
also a storm sewer, perhaps a con
crete tunnel, to take away water
when it rains. There is a water
main a large cast iron pipe, with
small leadpipe laterals for each
building. The gas company has
mains, too, with house laterals. In
some cities, telephone cables are
placed underground, and in a few
cities steam or refrigerator pipes
carry heat or cold to customers.
All are down at least four feet to
be below the frost line.
"In our city, where most of the
pipes are owned by the city, the
system is simple. In old cities like
New York and Boston, where these
'utilities' were once owned, by many
separate companies, there is a ver
itable network of private pipe-lines.
It is safe to say that in some cities
if a downtown block were filled
with costly automobiles, their value
would not equal the money repre-
