No Jury Service for Women.
Whether it Was intended as an act of gal
lantry or not, the action of the house at. Lincoln
in killing the bill to provide for woman's service
on juries, in our courts has putva limit on the
citizenship of women in Nebraska. As the law
now. stains, Lancaster vcounty -is the only1 place
in the state, where .women may serve, as it is the
only county iii the state with more than 30,000
or less tb'au! 100,000; i lh Douglas county the
statute specifies "all male citizens of the United
State," subject to certain ljmitatiofas. In the
other counties of the state only males are quaP"
ilicd, but the intent plainly was. this should
include voter A- simple amendment, striking
out the word, "male" might have been all that
Mas needed to cure the statute and would have
niadex women available for .jury service. The
effort to extend the compulsion under Which
males rest to include' women naturally arouses
. opposition. -' 1
In assuming the prerogatives of full citizen
ship woman is alsp supposed to have taken ott
all its responsibilities. One of these is service on
juries. .From the standpoint of ideal citizenship,
this is one of the highest of privileges. Twelve
good men and 4rue are clothed, with the power
of deciding questions-of right between man and
man; trial before a jury of his peers' is the right
' of any accused individual, and in, this land, where
all are sovereign, each is the other's peer before
the law; So in, the past any 13 men might be
called upon by the court to serve in determining
the true, facts in any casci Now that women
have been added to the list of sovereigns, is it
not. to be expected that they. also take on all
' that goes with such sovereignty? ,
i One of the unpleasant experiences of our
national life is that many men deliberately shun
the duty of jury service. This led ,to the presence
or a class of so-called "professional" jurymeJ),
against whom, objection was lodged because of
real or fancied venality. To avoid as far as
possible the condition'-comp.lained of, certain
stringent provisions have been :made into law,
particularly a,s regards the power of the court to
compel men to' serve on juries. To extend such
compulsion to women has aroused a very ani
mated discussion. We believe that it is a matter
that safely may be left to the discretion of the
csjirts, once the qualifying restriction of "male"
is eliminated, but we realize that much hardship
might be inflicted it .women were required to
take their places in the jury panel tinder the law
that now contemplates having every voter in
his turn take up the performance of such duty-.
Yet it is part of citizenship, and we feel sure
that a large number of women Will gladly v so
serve when called upon at least once., ;.
a The issue opens up generally the whole vista;
or the political relations -.of the' sexes, and,
while it .will be admitted that woman its quite as
completely equipped for jury service as she is"
tor voting, we gravely question whether she will
sustain the one as gracefully as she does the
other. It may yet become apparent that adop
tion Of the Nineteenth amendment did, not dis
pose entirely of all the points of disparity
between male and female. 1
King Albert's Cup Race,"
Nebraska is 4'ar enough away from salt water
to hold at least a judicial view of a yacht race.
1 herefore' the proposed contest' for the cup to
"be provided by Albert of Belgium appeals to us.
A trans-Atlantic'race, with no handicaps of any"
kind nobody barred,, open, to the world, to any
sort of craft Using the wind for propelling
power, holds something that interests the sport
fug sense. 'Contests for America's cup have oe
generated into the feeblest form of yacht racing,
,' participated in only by specially designed sailing
' machines, of no earthly use to anybody after
'the purposes of the race have been fulfilled.
Belter by far are the contests between the fishing
. schooner sailed last fall from Halifax and won
.byke Yankee boat. But the race across the
ocean promises something more inspiring. In
the pasfsuch events have excited lively interest,
although only four have been field, the last in
, 1905.y The entry list should be a long one tnd
-next Fourth of July around Ambrose Light
. ought to be a lively occasion -it" the spirit of the
Belgian ruler's proposal is even half way met
War Debts Can't Be Shifted. :
Muoh. talk of an unofficial nature" is heard
in Europe, of cancellation of war debts. Thus
far no connected plan lor action of tms nature
. has been presented for public consideration, for
the, subject is one that amounts to bankruptcy
and repudiation. The war, of courseyimpover-
ish'ed many nations'and the promises that with
peace conditions' would become better than in
the era before the war were vain and foolish,
since only after the losses and destruction of
war had been tnade good by work and frugality
could a higher Standard of comfort be possible.
; Any proposal to shift the burden of paying
,for the conflict on to the -Shoulders of the coming
, generations neglects the very real fact that our
ow.n generation already has met the cost through
the . destruction of vast amounts of capital
Likewise, cancellation of these debts would not
produce any more of the, necessaries of life or
provide work for the unemployed.
There has been no talk of cancellation in the
. Vnited States, the nearest any one having come
to this being in the suggestion of Dean Johnson
. of New York, university that ia a set date the
American people make a bonfire of their liberty
bonds "as a sacrifice on the altar of economic
readjustment." The effect of th is would te to
lower taxes which, "taw go to pay interest and
principal, but the nation as a whole' woutd be
no richer and no poorer, If everyone sacrificed
liberty bonds in an amount corresponding to the
amount of taxation he paid, absolutely no Change
would result. But to the extent that these
securities have been gathered into large holdings
and have passed front small ownership, a read

owe to themselves, and if the next generation,
through the process of refunding, should inherit
our war debt and undertook to pay it, the action
would simply resemble taking money out of one
packet and putting it in another.
N Experimenting With Germany.
If all the nations of the world were to adopt
a protective tariff against German goods, the
result would resemble the imposition o Ujj
per cent tax which the allieslan for all products
sent abroad from Germany. High export duties
such as this arc almost unknown, and the United
States constitution contains the provision that
congress shall levy no tax on exports. How
ever, restrictions of this kind have been applied
in the past to divert labor fronf disproportionate
production of raw materials into the manufacture
of them. Thus England, from the time of Ed
ward III through many generations, forbade the
export of sheep or raw wool, while aiming to
prevent importation of wroolen cloth by a pro
tective duty. The desire was to stimulate the
cloth industry in England. ' .
Even the best informed men disagree over
the proposed arrangement with Germany, and
doubt is expressed as to how it will work out.
It is clear that to the extent any foreign nation
buys German-made goods, just to that extent
will it be paying the. German indemnity itself.
It seems probable that international trade can
not now be dominated by the German manufac
turers as was threatened before the war. If
.Germany sells less abroad, it certainly will soon
er or later-buy less also.' The export duty
would first diminish exports, which would mean
that gold would begin to flow out of Germany,
as it would be buying more than it sold. As
gold, grew scarcer and more valuable, prices in
Germany, would be so lowhat the Germans
would tend to use only home-made products and
buy little or nothing fronf countries where ;g6ld
was cheaper and would buy less. '' , -. -v- '
This is the reasoning of the theoretical econ
omists, and it will be an interesting spectacle
for the world to watch the actual demonstration. J
Germany, always largely self-sufficing, and en
tirely so during 4ther war., apparently will be
forced "to be more so in the future,;, producing
what it consumes, and consuming .what it pro-'
duces.. .... - : , : '.

How to Be Twins. ,
A lotof things are wrong with politics,
among them being that most of us have been
taught from childhood that it is a game of fraud
in which the stakes are offices and that love of
country or desire to serve the public seldom
enters into campaigns. As a result of this sus
picion and lack of interest, when men of talent
and worth enter the arena, they often fai'-o
find the support" to which' they- aro .entitled.t
Good men and women who neglect the dtttieS ,
of tcitizenshin are little short of a" menace ;
Even when this sort of people comes out' to
vote;' their attitrfde is likely to be purely one of
protest. They are like an after-dinner speaker
who recently confessed: "I never vote for a
candidate; I always "vote against one. As- soon
as the nominees have been selected I sit down
alone and decide which, candidate . I shall vote
against. And, do you know, sometimes I wish
I were twins!" ''

The Assassination of George. ....
Poor old George is dead. ,
It was the not altogether melancholy duty
of the St. Paul'Civic and Commerce association
to officiate at the funeral. For a long time
every one. was agreed that something ought' fo
be done. When the city did not grow as it
ought, .:when public improvements lagged j en
officials made mistakes, when, business seemed
under a handicap and labor developed, grievances,
When the housing shortage pinched and every
thing seemed to be going wrong, it was eus
tomary for ali good citizens to agree that some
body ought to' do something.
That's where poor old George came in.
"Let George do it," was the cry. But George
never did it, and so the people of St. Paul de
creed that he must d!c' and held a pyblib cele
bration at his 'funeral. '"
Now the people, liav-e no one but themselves
to depend on in pushing public movements.

Thoe who work for. the promo

are glad to have the active support
of the life insurance companies. We
hope some day. they will become aa
aggressive In the mutter of human

patrols which go to fires for the pur

that firemen can find no time for.
They watch over fire departments to
see that they receive adequate ap
propriations and have good officers.
Each year sees tho lifo insurance
companies get a little deeper in the
work of health conservation. In
California last November the Metro-
plltan Life Insuranco company took
part in the state vote on certain
health questions. Some of the com
panies made periodic examinations
of their, policy holders. Many of
them circulate health, literature.
The efficacy of the insurance com
panies as aids of the health fight is
duo to tho fact that with them it is
an economic question" and they can
talk to the public on the money cost
of ill health better than anybody
else can.
I have a series of pam unlets on

studies of many thousand cases they
nave decided that on the average
a man with a certain kind of heart
disease will live a certain length "Of
time ana they are willing to insure
him on that basis. Of course, In the

and J. N. Brooks in these columns
io" favor of censoring moving pic
ture films, "They are good. 'The
fight Is against vicious films not
good ones. Recently there was run
here a film entitled "A She Tiger,"
depicting and. illustrating the fol
lowing crimes: against the law at
least to my point of view: 1. A
suggestive attitude on a couch of
"She" that would make Cleopatra
blush if she were here. 2. Banditry.
3. Arson. 4. Suicide of the leading
actress. B.. A public execution by a
firing Squad. .
A Bllde was run on the screen con
taining the names of our represen
tatives in the state legislature en
dorsing films without censoring with
a proviso. Reckoning that this
