The senate Is about to start the attorney
general of the Unltod 8tate on a new hunt for
trusts. The sensational flight of the price of
gasoline in the last few weeks has aroused sus
picion that the dissolution of the Standard Oil
trust as a result of the former suit did not so
completely do away with price control as naa
been hoped for. We must bear In mind, too,
that conditions that surround the production
and sale of gasoline at the present time are
somewhat abnormal. The United States is
practically supplying the world Just now, and
an unprecedented demand has been created by
reason or war requirements, uerminy is
tlng Its gasoline from the Gallician fields, but
the rest of the world is coming to the United
The present experience raises a very Inter
esting question, not at all novel, but of concern
to all. It Is the matter of price fixing, either
by the government or by the producers of gaso
line. Will the price be fixed to suit the buyer
or the seller?. Gasoline is not the only com
modity on which the selling price has registered
an advance during the months since the war
started. Everything that enters Into modern
life, except the subscription price to the news
papers, has been marked up, and In some In
stances quite as much in proportion as gaso
line. If the government Is going to start an
Inquiry Into prices, why not Include everything,
and get at the bed rock facts. It will be found
then, very likely, that the law of supply and
demand Is pretty well calculated to govern such
One phase of the gasoline situation that
must not be overlooked Is that the embargo
proposed to be put on Its sale abroad Is part of
the general campaign to prevent the sale of
arms to the Allies.

The death of another police officer, killed
In the discharge of his duty while making an
arrest, will again arouse the good people of
Omaha to a realization of the dangers to whicn
a policeman Is exposed. At the same time, the
unfortunate affair, assuming that reports are
correct, should be admonition to greater care
In handling prisoners. It Is supposed to be
the first rule of every disciplined police depart
ment to search the prisoner as soon as taken
In custody and take away from him any deadly

must have been overlooked or the search care

And then it Is rshled to london. Hongkong, Sydney
and Tokyo. At each of these places there are Asso

wards It to New York. If the thing happens In
Zanxlbar the story goes either to Cairo or to Cape

wide world Is combed for news, which in an incred
ibly shore time Is, delivered and printed everywhere.
When Pope Leo XIII died In Rome the fact was
announced by an Associated Preas telegram In the
columns of a San Franc isco paper In nine minutes

Night Coarse in the High School.
Four hundred and ninety-five men and
women have been given certificates that they
have completed the course of study required In
the night classes at the Central High school.
This simple statement sums up the accomplish
ment of these earnest men and women In thla
one regard, but it does not present the picture
of what that accomplishment means to society.
These students are nearly all wage-earners,
some are housewives, and all are busy during
the day with the- sterner things of life. What
ever cause cut them off from attending school
In the days that are alloted to school doesn't
especially matter; it left them with an unsatis
fied thirst for more of knowledge. Ambitious
and eager for a deeper draught at the fountain
of learning, they have sought to overcome their
handicap, and their effort will be rewarded with
a broader vista and a deeper understanding of
life. They will be better citizens because of
this, and society will be the gainer thereby. One
of the glories of our national life Is that the
door of opportunity is ever open to any who
will pass through it. The night school la for
the ambitious and energetic, and its possibilities
are beyond measure.
For Its domestic service other methods are
sdopted. The territory covered Includes the fhlted
States proper, Alaska, the Hawaiian Islands, the
Philippines, the Islands of the Carribean Sea, Mexico,
the Central-American states, and, by an exchange
arrangement with the Canadian Press. Ltd., the
British possessions on thla continent. The organisa
tion Is, as you have been told, co-operative In Its
character. As a condition of membership each one
belonging agrees to furnish to his fellow member,
either directly or through the association and to
them exclusively, the news of his vicinage, as gath
ered by him for his own paper. This constitutes tho
large fountain from which our American news-
supply Is drawn. But, as In the case of the foreign
official agencies. If there be danger that an Individual

Twice Told Tales
It is easy enough to see why the democratic
organs are trying to block the plan to write in
the name of Charles E. Hughes for president
on the republican primary ballot. They know
that democratic success depends wholly on re
publican division and they know, also, that no
nomination would so completely unite the re
publican elements as would that of Hughes.
By mistakes of the types, The Bee's list of
offices to be voted on in the presidential pri
mary, in addition to those in the oH-year pri
mary, was made to read "one district delegate"
to the national convention from each political
party when the allotment is "two delegates
for each congressional district." Each voter
tuay register his choice for six convention dele
gatesfour at large and two from his district.
The Chinese revolutionists have tnrown a
successful scare into Yuan Shi Kal, the ruling
boss, and forced him to put aside his imperial
ambitions. After much hesitation and manifest
reluctance the crown Is pushed aside and the
title of Tepubllc restored. The shuffle of the
Celestial cards does not disturb Yuan'a grip
on the job. He remains on top and while he
continues there it behooves the annoying kick
ers to keep at a sate distance from the axe.
On the Good Ship Ada Belle.
Tidings from the north are most comforting.
The good ship Ada Belle has weathered the
stress of winter in fine form, has escaped the
dangers of the Missouri's spring break up, and
will shortly turn her snubby prow downstream
towards Omaha, and soon again our harbor will
throw off its drowsy slumber and become once
more the scene of bustling life. And the Julia,
too. Is coming, so that where but one ship
plowed the muddy stream In days of last sum
mer, two will now breast the current, and bear
up the argosy of golden commerce. Let not
the scoffers rail at this; everything must have a
beginning, and neither of the vessels that made
up the fleet commanded by Columbus on bis
first voyage across the Atlantic would bear the
burden or push the barges the Ada Belle and
the Julia handle. These are but the start, and
from them, properly nurtured, will spring
commerce that shall fill our port with shipping,
and make the river again a thing of commercial

People and Events
Human Factor in Casualty.
Once more a terrible railroad wreck has
fcbown how futile are man's efforts to com
pletely safeguard all his undertakings. All the
extraordinary precautions for ensuring the
tafety In operation of trains have been adopted
I) the railroad In question, but these were not
enough to relieve it from likelihood of calam-
it which has overtaken It. Accounts so far at
hand Indicate that the human factor is again
present la such proportion as to nullify the op
eration of mechanical devices. Someone In the
r.ne of duty failed, and disaster followed. If
any moral U to be drawn from this it will be
along the line that man Is subject In some de
tree to the same laws as govern machinery. He
snaps under too great strain, and when he gives
ay whatever depends on him falls with him.
Until a limit is placed on man's undertaking,
the liability to failure will always be present,
and the shocking news of a terrible accident
may be expected.
Daniels' Service to the Nary.
Hear Admiral KIske charges inefficiency at
Washington as the source of weakness of our
navy. This is a most remarkable statement to
come from an officer high In the service, who
must know-' of the eminent services to the sea
of Josephus Daniels In his administration of
the Navy department. All the world has rung
with the 'echoes of the reforms there accom
plished. Is it possible that Rear Admiral
Piske Is unaware of these? Does be not know
that Secretary Daniels has put a southern man
into every high position available, thereby
proving his firm attachment to his home state.
as well as his fealty to the ideals of the demo
ciatir party? The secretary has also altered
th terminology of the navy, until the veriest
land-lubber or gawkiest of cornfield sailors will
no longer be mystified by the lingo of the sea
dogs. With firm hand, he uprooted the Rum
Demon and put the splendid ' battle wagons"
on the glorious "water wagon," even excluding
the supposedly-innocuous grape Juice, which is
still permitted at state dinners In Washington
How can the navy of any power clinging to

KKARNKY. Neb., March 31. -To the

Bob's Fake Claims.
OMAHA. Msrch il. To the Editor of
The Bee: "Bob" Smith Issues a campaign
statement over the signature of J. W.
Barnett. auditor of fee offices, which
declares that during his eight years In
office he turned Into the public treasury
JS1.242.73 more than his predecessor. I
fall to see where any credit is due Mr.
Smith. During his first term "Bob" went
before the legislature and hsd the cost
of fees Increased all along the line. If
the law during Broadwcll's term de
manded 1 irom a litigant for certain
services and during Smith's term this
service was Increased to $2, there was
nothing else to do but to collect it and
turn It Into the treasury. But what
Smith does not say Is that neither Broad
well nor he turned In all the fees which
they collected. In the case of Insanity
fees. Broadwell hung onto $11.4.14 until
the supreme court said that these mug
go to the public treasury; likewise ''Bob"
hung onto near to $12,000 of Insanity fees
until the supreme court had spoken, and
as regards naturalisation fees he will
likely hang onto those until the su
preme court Is heard from.
The law demands that the public must
pay certain fees for certain services, and
no official can take credit for doing what
he was expressly elected for, especially
when he himself had the law changed to

What One Bird Irftrer Accomplished,
BROKEN BOW. Neb.. March 30. To
the Editor of The Bee: Broken Bow Is
small city of less than t.000 Inhabitants.
It has many groves and trees and conse
quently there sre lots of wild birds of
many kinds. Broken Bow also has a scout
master, who loves the birds as well as
the "kiddles." Last summer he conceived
the Idea of Inducing the kiddles to build
and put up bird houses one day during
the Chautauqua week. Of course It might
be pretty late for the present season, but
the Idea was to get them up so they
would be ready for the coming season of
19l. He advertised It well in the Re
publican, setting a day and offering 10
cents each for the first fifty and 5 cents
each for the balance, the children to
bring some kind cf a certificate from
some one In the family to that effect, to
be paid for in the order In which they
were presented. The scout master went
to his office early the morning of the
day designated, but many kiddies with
many bird houses, some with certificates.
of course, beat him to it, and during
that one day 103 bird houses of various
designs were put up all over town, in
yards, parks, or any place where trees
were plentiful. Of course. In so many
there were a few tricks played; a very
few snide boxes put In Just to get the
money, but at Hast ninety good, sub
stantial houses were put up.
A week or so later one very bright 12-
year-old girl reported that Inside of
forty-eight hours' after her house was
up, it was occupied by a wild canary
(which was In reslity, a Bsltimore Chi
ole) and late as It was, many more were
occupied by wrens and "spled-out"' by
robins. You know a robin Is supposed
spy out a nest for the next yesr, and
think these robins' roost, or open boxes
will be the cause of bringing many more
birds the following year.
The scout master remarked that no In
cident In his life had given him so much
pleasure, and what an opportunity was
here for permanent work.
Now then. If Broken Bow. with 2,500
Inhabitants, could put up 108 bird houses
in one day, why not Omaha, at least.
