A VITAL STATE ISSUE.
Nebraska republicans need not rest upon na
tional issues alone in the coming campaign.
They have a state issue, on which they may
stand with the conviction that right is upon
their side, and that a clear-vfsioned electorate
will so decide. That issue is the permanence
of the principle of state government embodied
in the civil administrative code.
The code is an issue, a party issue, and that
despite the fact that not all republicans are in
accord upon the details of the particular law
in force at this time. It is a party issue be
cause the principle was indorsed by the repub
lican platform of .1918, was enacted into law
and put in practice by the republican adminis
tration of 1919-1920, and is being bitterly at
tacked by democratic leaders and candidates.
Whatever doubt may have existed as to the
attitude of the republican rank and file was
settled by the primary vote of April 20, when
Governor McKelvie was renominated and when
gubernatorial candidates favorable to the code
received a clear majority of all the votes cast.
Republicans in the forthcoming campaign
are for the code; democratic politicians are
against it. Republicanwlio find fault with de
tails of the present law are not required to re
tract their criticisms; they are expected, how
:ver, to support a principle of good govern
ment which cannot successfully be assailed and
if they wish to bend their efforts to the remedy
of such defects as they think may exist in the
particular method of its present practice. There
is no reason why the republicans should recede
from the redemption of the platform pledge of
1918. which reads:
AVe favor the enactment of a civil admin
istrative code in this state, creating a financial
and accounting system whereby a vigorous
and offectivc audit over financial expenditures
of the state may be established and provid
ing for the consolidation of the boards, insti
tutions, commissions and different, depart
ments and agencies of government. thereby
eliminating useless offices and positions and
avoiding the overlapping functions thereof,
and we further favor the creation of an ef
fective budget system to the end that gov
ernment functions may be more efficiently
and economically administered.
That was the declaration of. principle upon
which republicans of Nebraska elected their
complete state ticket in 1918, something they
had not been able to do for a decade. Its sound
logic appealed then to the common sense of
the voters of the state and no amount of
specious argument or campaign buncombe will
be able to overturn it now.
' Why the Navy Was Not Ready.
Consciously or unconsciously. Admiral Ben
son blurted out one great truth in his testi
mony before the senate committee that is in
vestigating the Sims charges against the Navy
department. He said tile navy was not ready
to enter the war because the sentiment of the
people was against preparedness. Who is re
sponsible for that unfortunate fact?
The sachems of the democratic party, big
and little, had led the people of the United
States into a fool's paradise. Martin Glynn
keynoted at St. Louis the wondrous war cry:
"Thank God for Wilson! He kept us out of
war!" This rang throughout the length and
breadth of the land. Nebraska, in common with
the middle west, rolled up a tremendous vote
for Wilson, all because he kept us out of a war
that he knew was at our threshold.
In 1913, when Wilson came into office, the
first thing the democrats did was to vote down
the Navy department's recommendations for a
building program. That policy was not varied
from in one iota. Josephus Daniels devoted
himself to the work with utmost assiduity,
never flagging for a moment in his effort to
stifle the truth by keeping up an outward show
of safety he knew did not exist. In 1914 Rear
.admiral Bradley D. Fiske, then a high officer
on the naval board, wrote to the secretary a
lengthy letter, setting forth exact conditions and
outlining a proper policy. His letter was "lost"
from the files in the department, and only after
a public scandal was threatened was it for
tuitously "found" by a clerk.
4 In the army similar conditions existed.
Answering a specific question from the secretary
)i war, the War college reported on "A Proper
Military Defense" for the United States, and on
this report, in 1915, the president publicly
pledged himself to preparedness. He was forced
to recede, however, because "Jimmy" Hay of
Virginia told him flatly congress would not
pass the bills needed to carry out the plans.
Secretary ' Garrison was forced to retire from
the cabinet,' and Mr. Hay was rewarded with a
life position on the federal bench, to be suc
ceeded in congress by Carter Glass, who is now
in the senate by way of the Treasury depart
ment. How many lives and how much treasure was
expended because of this no man can say. It
is certain the war was prolonged because the
Germans had assurance that America was un
prepared. And we were unready just for the
reason that the democrats sought to win the
election of 1916 on a false issue. Wilson kept
us out of war, when he knew that our entrance
was inevitable, unless we were ready to submit
to domination from tiermany.
That is why the navy was unready and why
we had no plans for the army when war did
come. In all the deplorable record of miserable
official blundering and incompetent bureaucratic
mismanagement, nothing looms bigger than the
fact that the democratic administration will
fully closed its eyes to the terrible truth in order
that it might profit by public sentiment un
favorable to war, which it had deliberately
created and openly fostered.
A Debasement of Marriage.
Fanny Hurst, a writer of fiction of transient
character for popular magazines, has announced
her marriage five years ago, when she was 26,
to a pianist named Danielson. The ceremony
was clandestine and has been kept secret ever
since. Under an agreement made before this
abnormal mating occurred, she and her hus
band have lived apart; and in making public
the fact of the limited alliance, Mrs. Danielson
is reported in the press as saying they will con
tinue to do so. She adds that during the past
five years all their meetings havc been wholly
controlled by "inclination and not duty."
The final bold confession presumably is the
key to this queer matrimonial connection, made
to legalize marital' relations only when both
parties were agreed, but subservient to a previ
ous contract that neither should be under obli
gation to perform the common duty of the
wedded state that of living together in con
sonance with the established, wholesome and
necessary custom of married life. Inclination,
the most unstable and dangerous of guides, was
placed above duty, the only safe rule of conduct,
to the degradation of what should be the most
sacred relation of life.
The disclosure of this cynical revolt from
the moral and legitimate responsibilities of so
ciety's most important institution recalls to us
the pagan experiment of the Spartans three
thousand years ago under Lycurgus. That
famous ruler and law-giver was an enemy of
the family. Home ties were unknown to the
Spartans under him. Everybody lived for the
state, and it alone, under the theory that the
people were made for the state, not the state Tor
the people. Fathers and mothers were com
pelled to give up their children to the state.
There was marriage in Sparta, but under strange
laws' It was a disgrace for a husband to be
caught in the society of his wife. All his meet
ings with her were by stealth under cover of
darkness. A wife could have chifdren by men
other than her husband with his consent. Brave
and robust sons were the sole purpose of Ly
curgus's marriage laws. The divine emotion
of love was sternly repressed to give full play
to physical attraction. The tenderness and tran
quil companionship of legalized association in
home life were regarded as a weakness by Ly
curgus, and as tending to the birth of r.n war
like children. The love which makes life blessed
and happy in constant association with the one
love, was denied the Spartans.
But obviously no such consideration cither
for the state or for children, were behind the
Danielson-Hurst prenuptial agreement. It
seems on its face to have been entered solely
to dispense with every implication of marital
duty and to leave the relation solely one of
Inclination, yielding to the perfunctory per
formance of a ceremony only to fulfill the letter
and not the spirit of the law. If so, it was a
deliberate degradation and perversion of the
true spirit and purpose of marriage, which
should meet the unqualified condemimion of
respectable society. If generally adopted the
home and family life, which are the glory of
civilization the world over, would be utterly
The state, by every means in its power,
should protect society from such nullifications

Herr Ebert Loses His Card.
, In one place in the metrical version of the
adventures of Don Juan, as recounted by the
late- Lord Bryon, we find the father ' of one of
the young ladies who figured in the story de
scribed as being "as mild a mannered man as
ever cut a throat or scuttled ship." This qual
ity of gentleness gets a new exemplification in
Germany, where the humanitarian union of
harness makers by an almost unanimous vote
has expelled Herr Ebert because he as presi
dent of the German republic signed a death
This, of course, was too much for the tender-hearted
harness. makers, most of whom had
just returned from the battlefields, where they
gave impressive proof of their devotion to the
humane sentiments they now profess. Perhaps,
though, it will be set up that as soldiers they
were required to do many things, -which as
harness makers they strongly disapprove of.
They fail, however, to make similar allowance
for the changed situation of Herr Ebert. '
It is quite conceivable that he, with his
leather before him and waxed end in his hand,
would descant with Teutonic volubility against
the law's taking the life of a condemned crimi
nal. As president of the republic, however, he
finds himself in charge of the execution of those
laws made for the government of his country,
one of which prescribes that under certain
specified conditions the life of a criminal is for
feit. So, caught between the Scylla of the
country's laws and the Charybdis of the har
ness makers', sentiment, the president of the
republic goes down to the obloquy of being ex
pelled from his trade union. How sad!
Right here it may be permitted to recail the
fact that one of the first things Kerensky did
was to repeal the death penalty in Russia. This
was confirmed by Lenine and Trotzky,,who suc
ceeded. Under the gentle sway of the bolshevik
during the years 1918 and 1919 in Petrograd
and Moscow alone, according to Isvestia, the
official organ of the regime, 9,641 persons were
put to death because of their political beliefs!
If you are looking for the cream of brotherly
love, you will find it in the bolsheviki rule of
Russia and the by-laws of the Berlin harness
A Proper Decision.
It will occur to every mature mind, we be
lieve, that Oliver Goldsmith's great masterpiece
of rural life, "The Vicar of Wakefield," may
well be regarded as not a felicitous selection for
a public high school class play. The family
tragedy therein portrayed is hardly the best one
for youthful dramatic interpretation. Our read
ers will recall Goldsmith's lines concerning it:
( When lovely woman stotpps to folly,
' And finds too late that men betray,
What charm can soothe her melajicholy?
What art can wash her guilt away?
,We concur with Miss Towne higher decision
that a more suitable selection can be made for

THE shortage of houses in England is so
acute that house-hunters are paying undertakers
to tip them off 'to possible apartments, or, at
less expense, are following the death notices
in the newspapers. Which reminds us that in
New England dealers in antique furniture used
to keep similar tab on old residents who were
known to have valuable pieces in their parlors
or attics. We were never lucky enough to ar
rive at the psychological moment. We usually
called when the heir, recovered from her first
grief, had begun to attach so much sentimental
value to the sideboard or highboy that parting
with it was sweet sorrow, and we were obliged
to supply the sweetening.

and trimmed In rare old rose point lace.
The long panel train of the. satin fell from
the shoulder, where It was held by a
straight decolletage band of the rose point
lace, that, coming over the shoulders, out
lined the V neck of the bodice front from
which points of the satin reached to the
shoulders. It had the elbow kimono sleeve.
The lines of the satin skirt were broken
with a drapery of the tulle forming a double
pointed tunlfc, and from the girdle at the
left a long spray of orange blossonis reached
to the hem. . Her tulle veil, flowing to the
end of the traine, was held to the coiffure
with a simple arrangement of three puffs
of tulle across the front, outlined with
orange blossoms that fell In little clusters
over the ears.

How to Keep Well
By Dr. W. A. EVANS
FORMS OF THEFT ARE MANY.
You think you would not steal.
Maybe you . wouldn't, but have you
ever been hungry and broke and
had food within reach and 6afe to
take? If you were so placed, did
yur principles withstand the strain?
Such whs the dilemma of Dr.
Theme, a character created by Rider
Dr. Trne's father died as a result
of smallpox." The disease had
crippled his family In still other
ways. ' Naturally under these cir
cumstances Dr. Therne was vacci
nated early in life. Traveling to
Mexico City, he was brought face to
face with a fearful epidemic of the
disease. For many reasons the dis
ease had become a phobiawith him.
Having settled down in England,
he underwent a series of profes
sional' ups and downs. There were
periods of considerable success
which served to sharpen his appetite
for position, power and acclaim.
After one such period he was prac
tically ruined by a suit for damages,
which he won, but which reduced
him tp penury and caused his pa
tients to desert him.' His wife had
died. He had one small child, a
daughter: no money, some debts and
a few friends. Just at thnt time he
saw a child, recently .vaccinated, in
whom erysipelas had developed.
Just at that time came a rich antl
vaccinationist offering him a nom
ination for parliament, expenses of
election paid, backed by a donation
of $50,000 in cash outright and
promise of other financial support.
Eventually Stephen Strong, the antl
vaccinationist, gave him more than
a million dollars. He wavered and
Having run for parliament, he
was elected and became powerful, in
fluential, and eventually rich. In
the limelight on the question of vac
cination, he was afraid to have his
daughter vaccinated. Having served
in parliament twenty years, he came
up for re-election Just at a time when
a smallpox epidemic was due to
break out among his unvaccinated
supporters. In the midst of the cam
paign the disease became so wide
spread that vaccination again be'
came a political issue.
Theme's daughter, now a beauti
ful young woman, contracted small
pox and died. When Thferne saw
that his daughter had smallpox his
fundamental fear of the disease
drove him to vaccinate himself. Ten
days later, while making a political
speech, a person in his audience
challenged him to show his arm and
prove he was not vaccinated. Re
fusing, his sleeve was torn off and
his vaccination was exposed.
Fiction sometimes strains the im
agination almost as much as fact
does. About twenty years ago an
anti-vaecinationist speaker in Au
rora, 111., was challenged to show his
arm to Dr. Herman Spalding. He
refused. The crowd forced his coat
off and rolled up his shirt sleeve,

S. O. S. writes: "Would diseased
tonsils cause foul breath? Would
enlarged glands cause foul breath
and are enlarged glands caused by
bad tonsils? Would enlarged tonsils
cause an awful roaring in the top
of the head? I have at all times a
foul breath and when I awake in the
morning my tongue is badly coated
with something yellow and this can
be removed by wiping- the tongue
with a handkerchief. Do you think
this could be caused by first men

Diseased tonsils cause foul breath
occasionally. Absorption from dis
eased tonsils is one of the causes of
enlarged glands in the neck. I do
not know what causes or could cause
a roaring in the top of the head.
Constipation is the most frequent
cause of coated tongue, yellow
tongue and foul breath. Constipa
