Strong, but Not Too Strong.
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. Aurora Republican.
That Is putting it pretty strong,
but not too strong. No one pretends
that the Roosevelt electors in Ne
braska can honorably hold " their
places on the republican ticket. Each

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
and dividing the time between elocution.

SOME REAL HIGH PLYING
Record-Making: Flight of French Aviator.
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
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,

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

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

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

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
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.
