The indignation expressed by Senator Hard
ing at the indecent attempts of the democrats
to make political capital out of the thirty-sixth
endorsement of the equal suffrage amendment
is thoroughly justified. No more brazen attempt
at stealing undue credit ever was noted. Repub
licans have not undertaken to obtain political
advantage through the suffrage movement.
Every appeal the party has made to the women
has been on the broad grounds of its patriotic
service to the country and the world. This
record is worthy of scrutiny, and will bear the
test of microscopic examination.
If the issue were to turn on suffrage alone,
the vote by which the amendment passed the
senate shows more clearly than any other record
the attitude of the two parties. The final vote,
taken in the senate on June 4, 1919, was 56 for
to 25 against. Of those voting in the affirmative
36 were republicans and 20 were democrats;
those in the negative were 8 republicans and 17
democrats. Analysis of the pairs, and those ab
sent and not voting shows the senate line-up on
the issue was 40 republicans and 26 democrats
for and 9 republicans and 21 democrats against.
Thus, if the matter had depended on the demo
crats, the amendment would not have been
submitted. Every republican from Nebraska in
house and senate voted for the amendment, and
the one lone democrat from this state, a sena
tor, voted against it.
Thirty-five states have ratified the amend
ment. Of these 29 are republican and 6 demo
cratic. That is the record on suffrage.
But the women are interested in other things
than voting, and it may be well to recall a few
accomplished by the republicans. It was a
republican congress that put a quietus on
polygamy among the Mormons. Enforcement
of the Edmunds act contains the principle on
which rests finally the validity of the prohibition
amendment. Do not forget that.
Forty-five states have adopted laws fixing"
minimum standards of child labor. Of these 27
nre republican, and 18 democratic. It has been
in a democratic state that the federal laws to
regulate child labor have been nullified. Twenty-four
republican and six democratic states
have forbidden night work by women. In nine
republican and six democratic states minimum
wage laws have been passed. Twenty-two
republican states pay mother's pensions and
only six democratic.
In twenty-six republican states compulsory
education laws are enforced, and only in six
democratic states does this prevail. In repub
lican California the average wages of teachers
is $998 a year, and in democratic Missouri the
average is $228.
In everything for which the women have
aspired, from suffrage to pure food laws, the
republican party has taken the lead. This is
not guesswork, but established by the indisput
able records of the two parties. And that is why
Senator Harding and everybody else familiar
with the facts marvels at the impudence of the
democratic claims.
Parcels Post and Domestic Delivery.
Motorization of the mail service of the
Omaha postofnee, about to be accomplished,
promises another big advance in usefulness of
the parcels post. Packages from the down
town stores will be delivered at homes of pur
chasers through the postofnee, if the present
outlined plan matures. No good reason exists
why this service should not be established. If
the postal service can carry a package to Coun
cil Bluffs, or to London, England, it ought to
deliver the same package to a home in Omaha,
just as it does a "drop letter." And the business
should be profitable to Uncle Sam. He has
figured his cost of carriage on a basis of definite
experience, and knows exactly what the expense
Is. Prior to the war careful surveys were made
of the cost of delivery by various stores, and it
was found that it cost an average of 10 cents
fper parcel. The motor truck would have les
sened this, as it was based on horse-drawn
vehicles, but other things have intervened.
Wages have increased, expense of operation has
advanced, and it may be accepted that the aver
age cost of delivering a parcel is not more
rather than less than it was six years ago. The
postoffice organization will be able to handle,
the business at a minimum of expense, though,
when the practice is once instituted, the cash
and carry problem will be definitely solved, for
the purchaser will find the postage needed for
delivery immediately added to his bill, whereas
the expense of maintaining the service is dis
tributed over all the accounts carried by the
New Note in Prison.
The new penitentiary in Illinois is coming in
for much consideration just now, because of the
ideas it embodies. Its purpose is reformatory,
and to this end it has been designed. Planned
for security of holding the prisoners it contains,
treat attention also has been paid to the item
Df their well being, that under proper care and
erderly restraint they may be brought to moral
is well as physical health. Most attractive of
Its features is the lighting arrangement. WThile
the architects were at work, they called in to
aid them an astronomer, who plotted the sky
light curve with such skill that every cell on a
clear day receives a flood of sunlight for at
least an hour and a half. The electric lighting
scheme l itmflarljr devised, to that at night the
interior of the prison may be made as light as
day. The gloom of the. dungeon is forever ban
ished from this penitentiary. Other innova
tions have been adopted, all looking to the
stimulation of atrophied moral sense, that it
may be given normal strength and the offender
be restored to society safely fit for freedom.
Years will pass before the definite results of
the new prison as an agent for reform can be
tabulated; in the meantime it is a prison, but it
denotes an advance in the attitude of society
towards those who have transgressed its laws.
Increasing Land Values.
The assessment roll for Nebraska, as being
made up at Lincoln from returns from the sev
eral counties, indicates a considerable increase
in land valuations. This is but the expected re
flection of the general boost given to values
within the last two years. It will have the ef
fect of securing to the state a portion of the
increment enjoyed by the owners.
The situation holds another clement, though,
and one that must have careful consideration.
Land is properly worth only what it will pro
duce. Increased selling price of farm products
has naturally added to the earning capacity of
the land. A speculative movement last year
sent price skyward, and many transfers of farms
were made at figures that staggered those who
are most familiar with conditions. Nebraska
was not hit very hard by this wave of land
gambling, but it did suffer some.
The average acreage values set by the asses
sors, as indicated in the returns given out at
Lincoln, do not seem unreasonable. On the 20
per cent basis, Thurston county shows high,
with $155 per acre, while Dodge comes next,
with $140. Examination of the table shows gen
erally that the prices fixed by the assessors are
fair. Nebraska land ought to earn on the val
uation. It is not alone the factor of productivity
that enters into this, but proper weight should
be given to other things that determine in the
end value.
Improved highways will perhaps be found as
potent as the increased selling value of the crops.
With better roads the farmer can get his produce
to market at a lessened cost, and this saving in
transportation tends to increase the value of
his land, because it improves its service. Other
items enter into the calculation, and suggest the
reasonableness of the rise in assessment. Varia
tions in figures denote only the inequalities
natural to the separate divisions of the state on
the agricultural map, and are not accidental dif
ferences of opinion between assessors. Nebraska
is reaching a point of stability as regards the
use as well as the value of its farms, a fact that
means much for its future prosperity.
Justice Moves Against Speeder.
An Iowa youth has been held for trial on a
charge of assault with intent to commit man
slaughter. He drove his automobile recklessly
along a public highway at terrific speed, collid
ing with another machine, injuring its occupants
and damaging both vehicles. He had wagered
with another youth as foolish as himself that he
could allow him a big handicap and then beat
him from one town to another. Nothing was
at stake but pride of opinion as to the racing
qualities of a rtewly purchased high-power car.
Human life was jeopardized and property de
stroyed in order that a pair of fools might test
a point in dispute. It may be set up that neither
intended to kill anybody, but the reckless
speeder is always a potential murderer. The law
properly deems the direct result of a man's ac
tions prima facie evidence of his intention. No
presentation of the well worn plea, "I didn't
mean to," should be allowed to interpose be
tween this culprit and the law. Only when some
of the thoughtless speeders have been ade
quately punished will the rest desist from their
unreasoning habit of using public highways as
race courses. Most motorists try, to drive
safely and sanely, realizing that only so can
they get pleasure out of a ride, but the enjoy
ment of the roads around Omaha is greatly
marred by the presence of a few who do not
care to be either safe or sane. These rash and
dangerous persons should be suppressed, and
the Iowa authorities have taken one proper step
in the direction of putting them out of business.
Rampant Reds Victorious.
As was anticipated, the radicals carried all
before them at Chicago. Townleyites, "48ers,"
single-taxers, the American party and all the
other little sideshows were swept away in the
tidal wave of radicalism. A platform too ex
treme in its' demands for Robert Marion La
Follette was adopted with a shout, when Chair
man Buck of the committee closed the debate
with this profane peroration:
This is no time for anything that is a com
promise. The minute has struck for a radical
party, and a liberal party is not worth a
damn. We conceded all and more than we
ought to have. When they asked for more we
said, "No, by God, we will not give another
One of the features of the platform is its
denial of equal rights to negroes, in order that
"white" votes may be obtained in the south.
That the name, "farmer-labor" party, is de
ceptive is plain, for no group of any importance
in cither class holds the views enunciated at
It is well, though, that things have come to
this pass, for the American people ought to
know just how much of froth and how much of
solid strength is back of this movement. The
"party" will have little determining influence on
the result of the election, but it will show up the
windbags that have inflated it.
Governor Cox has returned to his duties as
governor of Ohio, but the memory of his cow
pasture lunch will linger on through the campaign.
Among other noises of a city now disturb
ing the air in Omaha is the bustle of building.
Watching Omaha grow keeps the old-timers
from feeling dull.
If Dempsey could get a match out of Car
pentier as easily as Cox did out of Harding,
the fight would soon be on.
A Boston inventor has produced a non
sinkable safe. What most folks need is a bank
account that can not be overdrawn.
If Palmero could pitch every game, "Pa"
Rourke's brow would lose a lot of wrinkles.
Mr. Bryan says his heart is in the grave, and
Mr. Wilson probably will say "amen."
Sandy Hook and Navesink Highlands are
back on the map again.
.What happned to. tbj 'low pctou!
The Democrats and the
From Harvey's Weekly.
The chief feature of the league plank in the
democratic platform, upon which Governor Cox
has been nominated, is its untruthfulness. It
bears in every sentence the ear-marks of dicta
tion from the White House, and in every im
portant part it is instinct with the same insin
cerity and disingenuousness that has hitherto
characterized the utterances of the president
upon the same subject.
The first such falsehood is the plump asser
tion that it was for the establishment of a
League of Nations that America went to war
with Germany. Of that the record is ample con
tradiction. The act of congress declaring that
a state of war had been forced upon us by Ger
many made not the remotest reference to any
such purpose, and that act is the only authorita
tive statement of the reasons for and circum
stances of our entry into the war. It does not
matter what the president or anybody else said
or wrote or thought or dreamed. Mr. Wilson
in his exaggerated megalomania may have
imagined that his address to congress was the
official declaration of war; but it was not. He
may imagine now that his speech expressed the
purpose of the nation in entering the war; but it
did not. A resolution declaring that we were
entering the war in order to establish a League
of Nations would not have commanded a cor
poral's guard of votes in either house, and
would have been greeted with universal public
execration. Either the act of congress was false,
or this platform plank is false. We prefer to
believe the act of congress.
The plank is grossly false, also, by sugges
tion, in its denunciation of "the republican sen
ate for its refusal to ratify the treaty." A sense
of ordinary decency should have restrained the
making of such a statement in a convention
which had just excluded from its membership a
distinguished democratic senator for the sole
reason that he had been a conspicuous and reso
lute opponent of such ratification, when it was
known that at least half of the democratic sena
tors were opposed to ratification without effec
tive reservations, and when it was notorious that
the failure of ratification was directly and solely
due to the personal interposition of the presi
dent, who ordered it to be defeated by demo
cratic votes rather than have it ratified with
reservations which, while quite acceptable to
the other signatories, ran counter to his own
autocratic will and his own selfish designs.
A third and peculiarly offensive falsehood is
the implication that the adoption of the Knox
resolution was an attempt to commit what
Senator Lodge had formerly described as "the
blackest crime" of attempting to make a sepa
rate peace with Germany. The author of that
falsehood knew perfectly well that there was no
analogy nor resemblance between the two
things. Senator Lodge spoke of the infamy of
making a separate peace while our allies were
still at war with Germany; or a separate
peace while the issues of the war were yet un
decided and undetermined. The Knox resolu
tion bore not the slightest resemblance to that.
It was introduced and passed more than a year
after the president himself had officially pro'
claimed the end of the war, and nearly a year
after the formal treaty of peace had been made,
signed, ratified and gone into effect The at
tempt to cast upon it and upon those who voted
for it the obloquy which would have properly
fallen upon us if we had deserted our allies in
the midst of the war, is one of the most con
temptibly dishonest tricks that have befouled
recent political controversy.
Following these things, comes an appropriate
We do not oppose the acceptance of any
reservations making clearer or more specific
the obligations of the United States to the
league associates.
Wonderful, indeed! We shall now hear the
changes rung upon the expressed willingness of
the president to accept such reasonable reserva
tions. But mark that they are to be such alone
as make more specific and more clear our obliga
tions. There is not a word about making more
clear and more specific our reserved rights. No,
nothing but our obligations. Anything which
will strengthen our fetters, anything which will
emphasize more strongly our subservience to an
alien council, anything which will make more
obvious our loss of nationality and independence
and our servility as the common bailiff of the
world that will not be opposed by the president
or his obedient proxies.
We said that the chief feature of the plank
was its untruthfulness. In its closing sentence it
is altogether truthful. But it is a question in
which respect it is the more offensive to every
loyal American mind: in its gratuitous disin
genuousness and falsehoods, or in the damning
truth which at the end it unwittingly blurts

It is Dr. Bishop's opinion that
none of the advertised cures Is In any
sense a specific or in any proper
.sense a cure. The hyoselne, atro
pine preparations are helpful in re

siKclrtc. As soon as the acute stage

for building up the system Is begun.
Dr. K. S. Bishop holds that the

a degenerate. Nor is he fundamen

Of course, there are degenerates

there are In any other large group
of nun. Naturally the group of ad
diets includes some thieves, liars,
pickpocket and murderers.
What group of several hundred
thousand does not? How many nor

the pains an opium addict surfers
without calling for help? If they
I are to be called weak willed, then
the opium addicts can bo so desig
nated, but on this standard how few
people are strong willed?
lie brings forward the testimony
of a great many opium addicts that
the pleasurable emotions, erotic
dreams and beautiful fancies which
several literary charaoers have writ
ten about and which most people
think responsible for drug addiction,
are pure fabrications and have no
basis in experience.
Most people who become drug ad
dicts acquire he habit innocently and
unconsciously. Before they got the
habit they were just ordinary, every
day people. A few days or a few
weeks of some painful disorder, for
which medicine was taken, and be
fore knowing it they were in the grip
of habit.
In the group of addicts are many
persons who take enough drug to
keep themselves in drug balance,
who do not increase their dose, and
who go on discharging the duties of
life satisfactorily to themselves and
everybody else and are never sus
pected of being drug users.
The addict can be cured of his
habit without great difficulty, pro

Bishop does not believe in violent
purgation. Tho intense calomel pur

vertised cures for the habit, he
thinks, does more harm than good.

It would be merciful to add, if we could, "the
rest is silsnce." But it is not all silence; and
where silence exists, it is more damningly elo
quent than words. The convention had before
it the president's impassioned demand that it
"will say just what it means on every issue and
that it will not resort either to ambiguity or
evasion in so doing." Yet on the question of
Ireland, over which so tremendous a contro
versy had raged, it had nothing more to offer
than an unrivalled masterpiece, of "ambiguity
and evasion." On one other topic it did indeed
speak plainly. That was the campaign of agents
provocateurs, lettres de cachet, thievery, for
gery, torture and flagrant disregard of the con
stitutional bill of rights which has been con
ducted by the misnamed Department of Justice.
To that infamy, which has been condemned
by the federal bench and by representative jur
ists as probably no department of the govern
ment ever was before, the democratic conven
tion gave, from top to bottom, from center to
circumference, its heartiest approval.

In these days when the swindling operations
of promoters who sell oil wells, copper, gold
and silver mines, rubber plantations and "sure
things" generally have reached such a maximum
that everywhere states are planning "blue-sky"
laws to restrict these criminally greedy pro
cedures, one does not wonder that Judge Kene
saw Mountain Landis waxes indignant over the
action of the president in cutting in two the
sentence of James Dorsey, a swindling pro
moter, from eight years to four. The indigna
tion of Judge Landis is based on substantial
facts which it would seem can hardly have been
brought to the attention of the president, since
a more flagrant case of using the United States
mails for dishonest purpose has seldom been
heard of.

who sold more than 12,000 cattle a year, saying
they were healthy cattle of a well known stock,
while as a matter of evidence the certificates of
freedom from tuberculosis were fraudulent and
inferior and diseased cattle were sold all over
the country? The country is cheated too easily
by those who make Uncle Sam their partners
through the illegal use of the mails, and convic

to obtain. One would think that the disposi

Pofeiulor of Mr. llrynn.
Ktna, Neb., July 9. To the Kditor
of The Hee: Permit me to express
my opinion concerning an article on
the editorial page of the World lier
aid for July 7. The article is a ma
lignant harangue against the old,
venerable Mr. Bryan. It breathes
the spirit of a snake. To mo it
sounds as though the editor has got
ten orders from democratic head
quarters to eliminate, get rid of
Kryan by means that make a slow
death, agonizing and terrible, for lie
is more alive than he ever was, and
he might be a detriment to the
nominated wet candidate.
But. I forget that the World lier
aid is a paper owned by Mr. Hitch
cock, who was but is no more. Also,
I recollect that Mr. Bryan beat
Hitchcock In the recent elections.
Who can forgive such impertinence?
The peoplo of Nebraska, foolish as
they havo ever been, chose Bryan in
place of Hitchcock. Now that samo
people are going to get the tri
umphant note of cheer from Hitch
cook's bottle of "vitriol," to show
that they made a mistake, since he
was utterly (Mr. Bryan) defeated in
San Francisco. It is an honorable
man, who can speak thus of a de
feated foe? By no means, no! But
perhaps Mr. Hitchcock thinks Bryan
more alive than ever.
There is no particular point in the
article, which shows the least rea
son; all is pure cussedness, malic
iousness. The most poisonous ser
pent could not. emit more venom
than that article does. There is no
show of manliness, no trace of
honor; it is only the wild beast's
exultant howl when a prey is fallen.
And, wonderful indeed, the paper
in question is a democratic paper,
and Bryan also is a democrat. Why
all this stir, then? Rivalry! There
is a hidden design to make an end
to Mr. Bryan's political career. He
is in the way of Hitchcock'. Con
sequently we make believe that he
is against the whole party. Mr.
Bryan is too much of a democrat.
That is the only trouble with him.
He sees the end of the democratic
party, if not forever, at least for a
long time. He knows the public
pulse, and he speaks with that con
viction. Mr. Bryan is the conscience
of the democratic party, but if the
party lets its conscience go, what
can you thPU expect? Something li
the same key as the article in th
World-Herald. He knew that to de
