Rounding Up die War Grafters.
Attorney General Daughcrty is now (airly
well commiaMoticd to no after and clean op any
scandal or crookedness that may have developed
in connection with government contract during
the war, and which may be uncovered. The busi
ness should be taken up with a determination to
make a clean sweep, and to settle beyond dispute
all charges and suspicious. It is not a political
crusade, and should not be so construed.
When the government went into the war, it
went pell me!!, with no great amount of prepara
tion. Contracts for billions of dollars worth of
supplies were hastily entered into, many of them
with little knowledge on either side as to exactly
what was wanted or how it was to be done. Out
, of this confusion came great waste of public
funds, and very likely some dishonesty. Charges
have been freely made that many millions were
looted by unscrupulous. contractors. The attor
ney general has stated that probably $192,000,000
is recoverable if suit be promptly brought. That
is a small item, when compared to the billions
the waf cost us, yet it is worth while going after.
The main point is to settle the charges as to
extensive corruption and hishoncsty. Liquida
tion of war contracts disclosed a lamentable lack
of business method in the course of the govern-
' ment. Claims filed by contractors show a dis
position to extort as much of the public funds
as might be, and inquiries made by congress
show that the administration was lavish to the
last degree in its treatment of those with whom
it had business dealings. How much of the
money expended was without warrant of faw
may eventually be known, if the inquiry is'pur
, sued with sufficient vigor.
Men who honestly dealt with the govern
ment, who contracted fairly and delivered with
exactness, should not be left under the cloud of
obloquy that is raised by the general accusation.
A division shouldbe made between these and the
ethers, that the world may be given to under
stand that the business men of America are not
a bunch of conscienceless bandits, organized to
fleece their country in its time of need, but that
they did patriotically support all efforts to win
the war, When the dishonest contractors are
uncovered and set before the world in their true
light, the investigation will have been of public
service. Or, if it be shown that the alleged crook
edness is but the result of carelessness, ignorance
" or incapacity on part of government officials,
that fact should be made so clear that there will
be no doubt left as to responsibility for the con
ditions now complained of. It is a good time to
recall another'remark of Grant's: "Let -no guilty
The result of the primary in Pennsylvania is
r.ot yet absolutely determined, because of the
closeness of the contest between Gifford Pinchot
and George E. Alter, candidates .for governor, al
though the secretary of the state committee an
nounces that Pinchot has won. If this result is
correct, it may be accepted as defeat for what
has been the smoothest working machine ever
set up in the country, with the possible excep
tion of Tammany Hall. ;
Since the days of the civil war, when Simon
Cameron established himself as the dominating
' force in Pennsylvania politics, down through
Matthew Stanley Quay and Boies Penrose, the
matter of nomination for high office in the state
has been one generally, settled in the council
chamber of the "boss." Local combines have
been set up and have flourished at Pittsburgh
arid Philadelohia. but these as a rule have been
subservient to the great state organization. With
the death of Penrose and the lack of a central
figure around which to rally, the field was left
fairly open. Gifford Pinchot announced himself
last spring as an independent candidate, and has
made a vigorous campaign on progressive lines.
He had the support of the clement in Philadel
phia opposed to the Vares, and the same ele
ment at Pittsburgh, while his name appealed
very potently to the farmers and small town
voters of the state.
His nomination in no sense will weaken the
-. party's hold on Pennsylvania, and as it is ac
companied by the renomination of George Whar
ton Pepper to succeed himself in the senate for
the unexpired Penrose term and by David A.
Reed of Pittsburgh to succeed the late Prilan
der C Knox, the whole ticket seems to be a
strong one. '
The Shining Example of Alliance,
In the face of rising costs of city government,
Alliance, Neb., reports that its municipal ex-
penses for the past year were 25 per cent lower
i than for any twelve months in the last six years.
No such boast has been heard from any other
community m the state. But then, no other city
is under the commission manager form of gov
ernment Alliance is a busy and thriving town, but for
years the expenses of the city exceeded the rev
enue. When N. A. Kemmish, an engineer, took
the position of city manager he found a serious
deficit His report shows that the operating ex
penses of the various departments averaged 68
per cent higher under the old form of adminis
tration than under his management.

Progressives Determined to Stick.
One thing was made crystal clear by the
"middle of the road" progressives at Grand Is
tend. They are not going to le led or backed
into an alliance with another party, at the ex
pente of loiiug their identity and sacrificing the
political beliefs that called them to form a new
party. Nailing their colors to the matt, the con
ferees declared in favor of nuking the fight they
set out to win for principles and not for the pur
pose of advancing anybody's political fortunes.
The "deal" by which their former announced
candidate (or governor was switched to the sena
torial track, while a democratic selection was in
stalled as the party's preference for governor was
soundly denounced and utterly repudiated.
Fairmindcd folks, no matter what their politi
cal affiliations may be, will approve the course
of the conference. The public has little regard
for the man or set of men whose ambition is to
secure office, and whose course is consequently
shaped by expediency. If enough difference of
opinion exists to create a new party, with a
definite program of principles, and these are
worthy of support, the followers of that party
should be loyal to their professions or they do
not deserve respect as such. Fusion is unnatural,
if it indicates Vither that the office is the object
of the quest, or that the difference between the
parties is not enough to justify the existence
The progressives will feel better going into

The "Sheik" in Exile.
Napoleon and some others of those history
calls great deemed themselves above the law. JVo
similar claim of immunity should be allowed the
monarchs of the moving picture world. Yet
neither fear of the law nor respect fop it inter
fered with the Mexican marriage ceremony by
which Rudolph Valentino acquired a second wife.
"We were madly in love and couldn't wait
any longer," this Lothario of the movies explains.
This alone indicates the lack of restraint which
has cast so much discredit on certain other mem
bers of the film craft.
A short time ago Valentino was granted an
interlocutory decree of divorce from his . first
wife;-this will not become final for a year. Printed
at the bottom of every interlocutory decree is the
following warning: "This is not a judgment of
divorce. The parties are still husband and wife
and will be such until a final judgment, is en-,
tered qpe year from'the entry of this interlocutory
judgment." . ' " "' -
It is said that Valentino and his latest bride
have remained on the Mexican side of the border
since the ceremony. Perhaps they are awaiting
some expensive legal arrangement that will
avoid the ordinary consequences of their flouting
of the law. Whatever the outcome may be, de
cent public sentiment may be counted upon to
make itself felt in this as in other cases. .:
The pity is that worthy members of the
"movie" family should fall under any shadow by
reason of such conduct as that of Valentino and
others similarly careless of convention and mor
ality. Their great industry has a vast field of
usefulness and a tremendous responsibility, but
all its members are handicapped by its Valen-tinos.
On nine of thirteen important issues before
the United States senate in recent months Sena
tor Hitchcock of Nebraska is disclosed as "not
voting." He did not vote on regulation of pack
ing houses, ratification of German and Austrian
peace 'treaties, the hide tariff, the agricultural
seed bill, refunding of the foreign debt, prohibi
tion enforcement legislation and other measures
Three reasons appear possible and only three:
Was the senator unable to understand the meas
ures pending? Did he dislike to be recorded on
these issues, either through fear of the effect
upon his political future or because long absence
from Nebraska had left him incapable of reflect
ing the sentiment of the state? Or was it simply
indifference to his duties as Nebraska's repre
sentative? :, . , s -,
The senator's "nonvoting" record is clearly
set forth in the Congressional Record. He has
never made known the reason. Which of these
three reasons was the one that moved him to
disregard the ordinary duty of every man to at
tend to the job entrusted to him?

Farmers and Daylight Saving.
From th KuMi Hoamtwd.
Daylight saving went into effect In New Tork'
on the last day of April and is to continue
throughout the summer or until the last Sunday
In September. Thus is confusion confounded,
and one of the most foolish suggestions made
during the war, and actually put Into effect,
continued. While New York banks and, In fact,
practically all kinds of business in New York
will operate on daylight saving, the railroads
will run on "the time prevailing throughout the
country. As these roads run through cities and
states that retain standard time, they will stick
to their old schedules, which means that the
clocks in the two great railway terminals in
New York City will differ from all other time
pioces in the city. An exception to this is that
suburban trains will run on the daylight sched
ule. One can scarcely imagine a greater mix-up.
: Farmers, generally, appreciate the foolish
ness of the so-called daylight saving. The In
conveniences are many and the actual losses,,
were the carrying into effect of the new time
made mandatory, would be heavy. The sooner
the country, as a whole, ceases to seek to
change .the old time the better satisfied the
farmer will be. Moving the clocks up an hour
will not make the dew disappear one minute
earlier. Dairy cows have refused to pay any
attention to the new time, but insist upon being
milked as formerly. In other words, changing
the clocks do not change the scheme of -nature.
Tho Cowboy. . ,
from th Kinui City Star. -1
The cowboy, who was peculiarly a, combina
tion between an outdoor sport and an organized
Industry, is more of a tradition now than a
memory. Like the Indian and the buffalo, the
cowboy belonged to an age that has passed, and
with the passing of the age) the cowboy has dis
appeared. All that is left of him, save for the
memories of those who really knew him, is the
picture that fiction writers have drawn fiction
writers that, In the main, never saw a live cow
boy or knew his habits or his habitat. But It
is remarkable that here in the middle west and
the southwest, that produced him, there should
be so little of actual knowledge of a class of
men who served a period and a purpose In the
development of the west, and at so recent a day.
He was a creature of the frontier; a dweller in
the twilight zone between the wild waste of no
man's land and the orderly, regulated life of
What we owe to him probably has not Im
pressed us who now ride in trains or in motor
cars along the great cow trails where the cow-
boy rode his broncho. The books have not been
balanced, because there appears to have been
that quality about the cowboy that made him a
poor business man. He never presented his bill
to civilization for services rendered. No one
ever heard of a cowboy running for office on
the plea that the west was indebted to him.
What he did he did without exacting high wages
or entertaining the hope of reward.
The Farm Boy.
From tha CkippeU (Neb.) BafUter.
There is a saying that the cities are run by
the sons of farmers, and we believe that this is
largely true. We are also of the opinion that
farm life is the greatest training school a man
can -attend. To a youngster who has handled
a plow, milked cows, made hay, threshed wheat
and broken ice in order to get a pailful of water,
the average city Job is nothing more than play.
The boy reared on the farm bucks up against
nature and his problem is one of conquering
natural forces. The city man bucks up against
other human beings and the prizes go mostly
to those who are able to organize 'men to a com
mon purpose. You can fool people, but you
can't fool nature. The country boy learns early
the habit of work, and the habit remains' with
him after he has adopted city life. We remem
ber the words, "Any city Job seems easy after
one has worked on a farm.".
It would be a fine thing if every city boy
eould spend at least a year on a farm. We be
lieve he could easily sacrifice a year In school
for this experience.

Vhe holds that walking and cycling
are both good, so far as they go.
Cycling Is good vKereiM for the
legs. Its advantage over walking la

adds to the interest of the outing.
Jt Is Inferior 10 walking In that. In
cycling, the pelvis ta held fixed and

to warm up on a colj day will reegg

1. Every nation, whether large er
small, must, as a whole, slwsys pro
duce as much commodities food,
clothing, shelter and luxuries as It
consumes, for no ether nation gives
it anything for nothing.
S. Umall and backward nations

selling price of the goods.
3. We all went an ample supply
of wealth food, clothing, shelter
and luxuries; a reasonably short and
easy workday: a safe, remunerative
Job, and good working conditions
under a fair degree of personal lib
erty. Can extensive foreign trade
Foreign trade may be considered
under four dlffsrent aspects: (!)
When the exports largely exceed the
Imports: (2) when the Imports are
greater thnn the exports; () when
the exports and Imports practically
balance, and (4) when there is little
or no foreign trade.
. For Illustrating these four aspects
let us take specific examples. Hup
pose the totnl annual production of
all commodities by the people of
the United States with an eight-hour
workday is 200.000 cargoes, snd half
of this is exported. That would leave
100,000 cargoes for home consump
tion, which could be produced In a
four-hour workday. Such would be
the result. If we exported half of the
200,000 cargoes we produced snd Im
ported nothing, which would make
our deceptive "favorable balance of
trade" the highest possible.
It will not do to say that we get
money in exchange for our exports,
for we ae a nation have all the
money we need for our domestic
business, and, if we should want
more, we could make it on our
money presses In a few days.
But the people of the United
States would even gain much more
by discontinuing foreign trsde. They
would then not need expensive ship
yards, no merchant marine, no
crews, no merchants' and middle
men's profits, no railroad traffic, to
bring the vast quantities of com
modities to the seaports for export,
and it would save millions of tons of
valuable coal which could then be
used in our homes, factories and
Now, let ussee what would hap
pen if we would import half of our
home consumption and exported
little or nothing. Would not this
throw out of employment about half
of the American workers, close our
factories, mines, farms and other in
dustries? Under our present regime
every time we receive another cargo
of imports some more Ameican
workers must lose their Jobs. t
When the exports and Imports
practically balance we still worse
than waste the enormous outlay for
shipyards, ships, wages of crews,
transportation charges on ship and
railroad, three or more merchants'
profits and vast quantities of coal.
We may thus see that the ideal In
commerce Is reached when a nation

The old-time mixture of Sage Tea
aiid Sulphur for darkening gray,
streaked and faded hair is grand
mother's recipe, and folks are again

as we are living in an age when a

advantage. , J
Nowadays, though, we don't have
th troublesome task of gathering the
sage and the mussv mixing at home.

of other ingredients, called "Wyeth's

moisten your comb or a soft brush
with it, and draw this through your
hair, taking one small strand at a
time; by morning the gray hair dis
appears, but what delights the ladies
with Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur

fully darkening the hair after a few

Great Refund Offer
To Omaha People Who Are Weak, Sickly, Nervous
IMPORTANT NOTICE: By special arrangement, we can now ex
tend to any person in Omaha who wants more strength, energy and en
durance, the opportunity of using Nuxated Iron so that if you do not get
all and even greater benefits than you expect, it will not cost you one
cent, because we ourselves will promptly return your money.
You may wonder how we can afford to do this. The answer is that
week after week a large number of Omaha people come into our store
for Nuxated Iron ; throughout the country over four million people use
it annually. Blood examinations by physicians all over the country show
that an enormous number of people do not have enough iron in their
blood. Without iron the Mod becomes thin, pale and watery. In many
cases this so seriously weakens the vital organs that people often believe
they have heart or stomach trouble, kidney diseases, nerve force exhaus
tion or some other serious ailment. They have pains and palpitation of
the heart, sudden dizziness, faintness or spots before the eyes, when as a
matter of fact the trouble is all due to lack of iron in the blood, and
when iron is supplied all of these symptoms disappear. 1
Genuine Nuxated Iron contains true organic iron like the iron in
your blood. So many people are deficient in iron who would surely be
benefited by this remarkable remedy that we recommend that you come
right to Beaton Drug Co. and get a regular $1.10 bottle for 89c, use it
for two weeks and note the improvement in your own case. You are
the judge if you do not get all and even greater benefits than you ex
pect, just bring back the wrapper and we will promptly refund the full
amount you paid.
