The Double Label Trick.
Ascribing democratic defeat wher
ever it occurred In tho lato Nebraakn
olectlon to fusion of opponents, our
old friend, Edgar Howard, takes con
solation in this thought;
Tho democrats and tho pops used to
play that rame gamt In Nebraska and
It must be admitted that the strongest
tie which bound democrats and pops to
gether was tho hopes they entertained of
securing the offices.
On tho theory that honest confes
sion Is good for the soul, this is in
teresting particularly as confirming
the attitude of The Dec toward demo
pop fusion all theso years. A com
bination of political forces to correct
some abuso or accomplish sonic par
ticular reform to which both aro
committed Is qulto understandable
and defensive, but It can bo only
temporary. Whoro fusion Is nursed
along year aftor year Just to divide
tho spoils of offlco, It can havo no
So far os wo aro ablo to ascertain,
In no state In" tho union has tho
fusion fraud been so brazenly prac
ticed and carried to such extremes
as It has been hero in Nobraska. In
no other state do offico seokors havo
the hardihood to take oath that they
affiliate at one and tho same time
with two or more opposing political
parties proclaiming Irrcconcllablo
principles. In all othor states, per
petration of this bunco gamo has

double-Iabol tickets legislated off the
official ballot. With realization that
U Is a gamo more than one can play
at, Nobraska may eventually unload
the Incubus, too.
The Tatus Club Speech.
President Taft's Lotus club speech
is nn utterance wise, philosophical
and of rnro good humor, as mus bo
generally acknowledged. Tho presi
dent facetiously called It his "swan
song," and as such it was sweot and
melodious aa compared with strident,
ill-tomporcd and ill-timed post
adjurations heard from others. His
old-fashioned exalted ideas of tho
presidency and tho constitution como
as needed inspiration at this time.
Two of tho president's record
mondatlons In this speech aro of no
table Interest, that ot a slnglo six-
year presidential term and that ot
oxecuttvo representation through tho
cabinet on tho floors of tho Iioubo
and senato as a moans of greator ef
ficiency in both f departments and a
deterrent to misrepresentation and
baleful Influence upon tho country.
No doubt the country Is In a mood
to glvo serious consideration to both
propositions. Somo definite oxprcs
slon has already been had in favor
of a longer term for the prostdont
with Ineligibility for ro-oloctlon.
Undor tho present system thoro la
much tomptatlon In tho first term to
plan 'for a second. Yet there 'Is no
assuranco that this condition would
bo fully ovorcomo oven by adoptlug
tho chango proposed.
Cleaning Up the Cities.
The general rlso in moral tone ap
parent over tho country has insplrod
vigorous ontl-vtco crusades In nianj
cities and somo very marked tradl
lions are bolng swept away. Mu
nicipalities aro bolng arbjisod to their
own moral and clvlo wolfaro, so with
attention thus conteredi upon needed
improvement, It ought to bo possible
to achieve It In larger measure.
Dut at tho outset It should be
rocognlzed that construction must
follow destruction and tho disap
pointing feature thus far with our
professional upllftors has been tho
distinct lack of any reasonably
doflnlto plan to take tho place of
what Is torn down. Wo must dto
more than Bupplant one abuso with
another, possibly an bad or worse
than tho original. If, as Is assortod
by many, tho day of segregated social
vice Is past, cities must hasten to
Improvlso a hotter method for hand

tho evil does not disappear with the

Xing Corn's Supremacy.
Kins; Corn put ?1, 850,776, 000 of
new wealth into tho pockets ot the
American farmer this year. Ho put
3,160,137,000 bushels of this cereal
tntq his granaries, which exceeds tho
greatost corn crop ever produced by
any country by 281,921,00 bushels.
That Is a little more than Nebraska's
1913 crop amounted to. This state
