No man who countenances the plain fraud by which KooKevelt supporters hope to gain six electors In Nebraska has any license to question the . methods of the New York police force, much less the nomination of Taft by the Chicago con vention.

President Taft has not proven an ideal executive. He could not have done so and been loyal to the party he repre sents. But he has never forfeited the respect, although he has Mt time awak- dent Taft in this rate.

These are good days to go riding on "shank's mare." No city can be beautiful while It is defaced by ugly billboards. Chicago has started an investiga tion of its police. Jealous of New York again. When Woodrow Wilson comes to Omaha next week he will show us the difference. Europeans, we gather, are not complaining so much at the high price of American meat. , Presumably, we will soon have a chance to see what an expurgated street fair midway is like. The sample is all right, Mr, Weather Man. Just bring on a full consignment for Ak-Sar-Ben week. Wild oats still grow In some west ern mountains. Yes, and a few may be found upon the plains and even in the cities.

It goes without saying that even now the colonel Is not a candidate for president "in the sense of seek ing the office," but Is still merely willing to take it if "tendered." St. Paul gave James J. Hill an elaborate banquet in spite of his gloomy predictions about the cost of food and the American people's ex travagance. , By a striking coincidence the same fire that destroys a Kansas City ice factory, also wipes out the home of the base ball club; something of a frost, itself.

The fight to cure the mysterious horse disease seems to have resolved itself into a contest between the hon orable veterinary profession and the ordinary farmer, with the odds In favor of the latter. These figures depicting Nebraska's plethora of automobiles assume that all of the registered numbers out standing represent autos in active commission. This may be correct, but it is not susceptible of proof. Our auto regulation law should be amended to require display of a reg istry label with color changing from year to year. For Cleaner Streets.'; A committee of the Commercial club has been assigned to the task of devising ways and means for cleaner streets for Omaha. The problem of clean streets may be ap proached from two opposite sides. Measures may be adopted to prevent the streets from becoming dirty or efforts may be directed to removing the dirt after it has accumulated Of course, both methods must be pursued, but the more effective the preventive-' measures the less costly will be the work of cleaning up. Preventive .measures, moreover, de volve as much upon the individual business man or householder as upon the department of the city govern tnent charged with supervision of the Btreets. Observance of the rules against using Btreets as dumping grounds, against lumbering them up with building materials, against scat tering on them the contents of pass lng wagons, would do a whole lot, although It might not, do away with the necessity of a follow-up in the form of periodic, systematic and thorough cleaning. , The Cuban Crisis. With a depleted treasury, acute need for funds and an aggravated political situation, Cuba faces the real crisis of Its modified autonomy. If it falls this time to prove its power ot self-government, It is difficult to see how intervention by the United States is - to be avoided, anxious as this nation is to escape that altera atlve. We have racial problems of our own without desiring to borrow new ones from Cuba, But, while the United States has always been sincere in its attitude toward the little island, it is under obligations, which it could not evade if it would, In its responsibility to Cuba. And, on the other hand, Cuba is bound in adivance to intervention by us whenever it . fails to make good on its constitutional contract to maintain "a government adequate for the .protection of life, property and individual liberty:" The question now arises: fCan; Cuba survive the present state of Its finances? Can it hold an honest and successful election for the presidency with a loyal submission of the de feated party to the will of the ma It has never yet permanently suc ceeded in this latter achievement. And Its treasury now is empty, with much of the public Improvement, to be made by the 116,500,000 Speyer loan, left undone. The American people hope Cuba will yet' make good, but their government must not be blamed for taking precautionary steps in anticipation-of possible fail ure. and dividing the time between elocution. art and music The home t John Itoslcky, corner of Mnth and Hickory, came near being de stroyed by fire.

SOME REAL HIGH PLYING Record-Making: Flight of French Aviator. Springfield Republican.. Predictions that; the height limit In aviation had been reached because of the tenuity of the atmosphere have been so regularly .made that they are no Ibngr taken seriously, and It need not be sup posed that the top has even yet beer, reached In the' spleridld flight of George Legagneux, who at Villacaublay, Franca. j reached the . prodigious height of 18,372 eei. mis ingnt is a,532 reet over three miles, and only 108 feet less than three and one-half miles. It surpasses the light of Garros, made September 7, by 1,972 feet. It rose 2,951 feet above the summit of Mt. Blanc, and was but 1,918 feet below tha highest peak of Mt. McKlnley, which Prof. Parker gave up, as unscalable. We may assume that the aeroplane will eventually be able to carry man to tho summit of most peaks, and It would be rash to say that even the altitude of Mt. Everest may not Borne day be attained. But aviators have shown little disposi tion to go in for mountain climbing, save for the crossing of the Alps by Chaves, whose tragic end Illustrated the danger; among the mountains It Is usually gusty, and landing offers special perils. So we are not likely to see the high peaks' pro faned by cheap trippers, as some have feared, but the records will probably con tinue to be broken In pure emulation. It was thought a wonderful thing in IMS when Wilbur Wright flew to the height of 400 feet only four years ago! The next year there was hot debate as to whether 1,000 feet could be managed, but Latham left the record at 1,640 feet. In 1910 Legag neux, who has Just regained the lead, as tonished the world with a flight of 10,746 feet, and then It could be said as it can be said again now, that there was no use In going higher. For all practical pur poses of war or peace two (miles Is aa good as ten, but It Is easy to understand the fascination of the sport, and for tunately these high climbs do not seem to be specially dangerous.

THIMOS UNDONE DV TAFT Fifteen Th American states have long since experienced with the telephones what London now seems to be considering. An official rubric just Issued by the postmaster-general In charge of the Lon don telephone service, comes to local notice through the , London press. For the telephone game Is one of the most subtle and hardly played of all our na tional pastimes. The London officials advise wire patrons that "telephonic transmission blurs the distinctive sounds of consonants and tends to make words containing the same vowels sound alike. In passing numbers, therefore, it Is neces sary to speak mora distinctly than in ordinary conversation. There Is great risk of confusion between five and nine, and much difficulty In distinguishing be tween two and three. In London each figure Is pronounced separately, with the exception of doubles which are so given. One provision. in the British phone serv ice will appeal especially to those of us who quarrel spasmodically with the operator. "It is the duty of the. operator to re peat every number passed by the sub scriber in order ..to give, tha, subscriber an opportunity, of, correcting, any mis apprehension. If in any case the repeti tion is not clear, the operator's attention should be Called to the fact If the rape- t tlon i Is incorrect the right number should be repeated very distinctly, with emphasis on the figures misunderstood, If the operator Is not sure she has taken a number correctly It is her duty to ask the subscriber to repeat the particulars, Prompt compliance with the request Is nf great assistance to the service." Telephoning through some exchanges Is a sort of fteurastenlc novelty. It gives revelation to more varieties of tempera ments than can be found In the divorce records of a hundred courts. The psy chology of telephone manners has been the subject of much speculation and flip pancy. We can appreciate the repetition order in the London rules book, having still freshly -In thought the memory of that time when the stating of a double number, as, for Instance, three, four, double five was acceptable. Who can not recall the frosty correction from cen tral of three, four, five, five? Many of our telephone worries would be dissi pated were attention given to the clause Just quoted. One telephone company Is sued an order not many months ago which served as oil on the troubled waters of conversation. The addition t the one word "please" to central's re quest for the number has disarmed more than one unkind and impatient tongue, to FIRE J 3 THE sy a i Gives Your Stoves a Jet-Like Shine!

We hope not, because the court de cision defining the limit, if the board is limited at all, would be equally valuable to us here in Omaha. Undermining the Empire. The perturbation of the good duke of Sutherland about American fann ers' invasion of Canada "undermin ing the empire,", is rich 'with' humor. The duke, one of Britain's wealth iest noblemen; the duchess, London's social peacemaker, and their two noble children, have Just, concluded tour of the Dominion in the Inter est of the mother country aa well as Canada. The duke soems to think heroic action is needed to stem the tide of American immigration in Canada. His remedy Is to induce Scots and Britons to hasten there forthwith in such numbers, as will counterbalance the baleful Yankee Influence, and save the. precious heri tage of royalty to the north of ua. : Americans, too,, no. doubt,, would like to see more of the sturdy tons of Great Britain take up their places in this land of promise," but" if they continue to overlook their opportuni ties Americans will- not. .How an empire could be undermined by the invasion of a distant province need ing development by blue-bloodied Americans Is an anomaly. Of course, if his grace means undermining the principle of imperialism, he-- may have found something to worry about. But it does not seem to be bothering Canada much- a Wall street tainted to ni Hemlntlers of the Kooaeveltlan Era. Baltimore Sun (Dem.l.

Gregory. me rugiuve siave law was passed by the United States congress sixty two year ago-September 1, ISoO-and thereby hangs. a tale, a tale of woe as was not dreamed of by any one at the time the law waa carried tlfrough the national legislature. , Henry Clay, that rock-ribbed Ameri can and prince of patriots, thinking to pour oil upon the troubled waters that threatened the safety of the ship of state, formulated . the famous "Omnibus bill," so-called from the fact that it waa sup posed to carry through all the meas ures that the troubled state of the coun try seemed to demand. ;! 'Among the other things comprehended by the Omnibus bill' waa the law which, It was hoped, would put an end to the operation of the "Underground Hall way," a term that was applied to the growing custom among Abolitionist of aiding runaway slaves In escaping from their masters. . : As Clay felt, about it;' It was) wrong to do thii,' lnaamuoh ' as negro slavery was recognised by the constitution and 'the laws, made in pursuance thereof. The great Kentuckla'n hated .slavery and longed for its abolition, but he main tained that,; the constitution being what It was, the underground railway. was il legal. Hence his advocacy of the fugitive stave law.' which Imposed a fine "of J1.000 and s'x months' . imprisonment on any one barboring fugitive slaves or aiding in their escape. ; . . . . "s,- ' Mr. Clay's- intentions- were, of course. the best in the world, as were also the intentions of the many northern mem bers who voted for the bill. The desire with them all waa to allay the ugly sec tlonal feeling which had been engendered by the unconstitutional action of the abolitionists, and to promote between the north and south the feeling of peace and goodwill. But Instead of acting as it was hoped It would, ,it acted the very opposite. It proved to be the very worst thing that could possibly have been resorted to. Acting like oil upon flames It only in tensified the opposition to slavery con stitution or no constitution. It maddened the abolitionists and raised up for them the friends and co-workers they would never have found without It. The feeling that It was wrong to punish a man for trying to help another man to freedom sprang up everywhere and raged Uke a prairie fire throughout the north. , In the meantime Mrs. Stowe published her "Uncle Tom's Cabin" that most won derful of Ol the sophistries that was ever palmed off on the world as truth- Land a sentiment was awakened against the "peculiar institution" akin in in tensity to that which Peter the Hermit aroused against the Moslem occupants of the Holy Land. The constitution waa forgotten, the laws maae in pursuance tnereor" were thrown out of the window, and It was clearly as good as settled, ten years be fore the dread tocsin sounded, that the black man was to split the country wide open, and become the Innocent cause of the greatest wars of all time. 1 One hundred years ago last iMtufdav the Russians started the greatest fire of a century, the burning of Moscow.
