Tho beauty about tho avorago movlels that, no mattor how fierce tho tragedy, everything comes out all right In the end, with the hero or tho heroine on top. It Is certainly tough on a public utility cor poration when It has to boost Its valuation for rato-maklng at tho saino moment it Is trying to reduco It for taxation. It does not take a prophot nor tho son of a prophot to foresee tho troubles bound to befall Austria the momont tho aged Emperor Francis Joeeph vacates his throno. Glfford rinchofs endorsement of his broth er's attack on GTorgo W. Perkins tends to com plicate the situation nil the more. Two of the unafraid men, are jot to bo heard from, Boss Fllnn and Francis Henoy. What say thoy? While President Wilson almost accuses of crime business men who writ to members of congress protesting against his administration measures, Secretary Bryan cnlls upon all hla Commoner readers to write lotterB that will bring pressure for their enactment But, of course, tho White House right bond does not know what the left hand Is doing. Sauce for Gooie it Suoe for Gander. It is Tory plain that our domocratlo friends In Nebraska aro having all sorts of trouble keeping peace In the family. The principal party oracle devotes two columns of its precious odltorial apace to an attempt to pour oil upon the ruffled waters and to coax back onto tho reservation those who aro saying they will not play there if certain objectionable mischief makers are not kept out and punished for their misdeeds. "There is room enough for all!" shouts tho peaco-maker, and adds tho lugubri ous warning, "Every ono of them is noeded. There are no.democrats whom the party can af ford to throw over the transom merely because thoy supported this candidate or that candidate once upon a time, or because they believe local option preferable to county or state prohibition, or vice versa. We neod them all." Far bo It from us to except to the logic of this forceful advice to democrats, but what's sauce for goose is sauco for gander. The ad monition directed to the democrats applies with equal fitness to the republicans of Nebraska. Factionalism means division and division means weakness, while getting together means union, and in union thore Is strength. It can bo truly said for Nebraska republicans that if the party Is wisely led and wisely managed, It will invito into one common fold all who fought under the republican banner In previous successful polit ical battles and avoid injoctlng into its platform minor issues on which the rank and file are known to be sharply divided.

Assassination of official heads, whether of republics or empires, is most deplorable ns viewed In the light of a blow at constituted au thority. As by a well known principle of scl enco, no two objects can occupy tho samo space at tho same ttmo, so anarchy and government cannot exist equally togother. Tho grief of Austria-Hungary, therefore, is the common sor row of all people and natlonB ruled by law and tho violent deaths of Franz Ferdinand, heir to tho throno, togother with that of his morganatic wlfo, but another tribute now and then exacted of this supremo law by bloody-handed anarchy. Ferdinand is described an a man of bitter enomlcfi and arduous friends, evidently a man ot strength. Ills murdor Is deeply mourned by the people ot his country, but of tho long lino of such tragedies in tho last sixty yoars of Austria's history none occasioned as deep and widespread sorrow as that of Elizabeth, wife of tho prosent emperor. " This occurred at tho hands of an Kalian anarchist at Geneva, in September, 1S98, tho emperor's son, Rudolph; having met a sim ilar death only nine yoars before, which made the man who has just been killed heir pre sumptive. Modern history records nothing equal to the blood-stained rulo of Francis Joseph, who as cended tho Austrian throne in pocembor, 1848, amid turmoil and strife, which threatened tho dissolution of tho empire. His brothor, Arch duke Francis tho weak emperor Ferdinand, having abdicated waived his right to the crown and Francis Joseph claimed it. pn down through th,o turbulent years that followed, dis-. tmguisnea uy ine auaiiBtie reconstruction ot tho monarchy, -the Seven Weeka' war 'With Prus sia, tho conflict with Franco and Sardinia, as- fiasslnatlon has stalked through Austria like an avenging Nemesis,' but steadily forward has gone tho dual empire under tho stimulus ot a strong hand at Vienna. Indeed, none but a strong hand could havo done for Austria-Hungary what Francis Joseph, now 84 years old, has dono, that, too, In face of the gracteat obstacles aJmoBt interminable, with which any modem sovereign has hag to contend. It tho bullet that ended the life or Ferdinand had taken tho emperor's as some bullets In trio past havo at tempted It would have left tho nation pros perous and enlightened, for in these sixty-five years Francis Joseph has led it to groat ma terial, as well as political advancement.

SOMEWHERE, June 29.-To the Editor of The Bee: Th Spanish wcro the first to arrlvo on the coast of Mexico. They took possession of the harbor, the fort ress of San Juan De Ulloa and the city of Vers. Crux. This action appears to have excited the Jealousy ot the French who, along with the English, arrived later. The Spanish were commanded by General Prim, afterward the martyr of tho short-lived Spanish republic. The English wero led by Captain Dunlop, R. N. The French commander was Fran cis Achilles Basalne, the most Infamous name In French history, a namo that despite the Sisyphean labors of his apologists- will bo tripled with that of Judas Iscarlot and that of Benedict Arnold un til tho last decade of recorded tlmo. He was a fit servant of an Infamous mas ter. Just tho man to do the dirty work of Iouls Bonaparte. But, in the words of Junius, treachery Itself could riot trust him. There was, at that time, no cable under the sea; consequently ministers, admlrnls and generals could not receive cipher messages from their respective governments. But' the English and Span ish commanders were men of honor and Intelligence. Mlramon appeared at Vera Our. Dunlop promptly arrested the scoundrel nnd deported htm to Havana, as tho robber of the English embassy. Your readers wilt recall the Incident re lated In the previous letter. The ap pearance of Almonte and Padre Miranda two stormy petrels, political opponents of President Juarez and their reception by the French, against the protest of Dunlop and Prim, opened tho eyes of these honorable men. Without awaiting instructions from home, they quit the country and left the future traitor of Mrtz to his own wits and resources. Louie Bonaparte had shown his hand. DER HEIDE. Secret Sesiions in Peril. Senator Stono's outburst In defense ot the secrot sosslon In senaatorlal affairs Rooms llko u rare bit of satire in view of the ante-election plea ot the president and some ot his partisans for light as tho democratic panaoea for tho ills or governmental conduct. "Let There Be Light," wrote Woodrow Wilson in "The New Freedom." Now; comes the Missouri senator to heap anathe mna on the heads of unfaithful senators who dls- oloso what goes on bohlnd closed doors with re spect to the people's business. It is possible to conceive of situations re quiring a degree of sccretlveness, but neverthe less the spectacle of democrats fighting for tho r.tar chamber is, In view of the party's campaign slogan for light and publicity, more or loss in teresting. It is one thing to preach tho doc trine ot doing the public's business all out in the open, another to practice it. No Time for Jingoism. Americans neod not be disturbed over re ports ot anti-American bitterness on tho part ot Japanese newspapers, to long as tho govern ment at Toklo remains true to Its determination to co-operato with the United States toward a mutually satisfactory solution ot the Issues pending between us. Nor are wo Justified in becoming excited over Japan's renewal ot the egitatlon for a settlement ot the Pacific coast problems, since tho latest Japanese note on the subject, which was received almost a year ago, continues to He In our State department unan swered. Without criticising their own govern ment. Americana will admit that If they were In Japan's place they mlfcht feel like insisting on some sort of an answer now. So, let us mako sure that the time tor Jingo ism Is not at hand. Both governments officially have pledged themselves In mutual good faith and feollng to a Just and equitable settlement of these questions. That should be sufficient Both governments are to be takenVat their word both have all to gain from continued amicable relations. Of course, the issuo may continue to present difficulties, but not Impossibilities, It does not warrant the Jingoistic assumption ot a Japanese-Mexican collusion against the United States. Wunlit Nm It the Perkln Party. LINCOLN, June 29. To the Editor of The Bee: I suggest that in the future We name the progressive party, "The George W. Perkins Tarty." This fall will convince some that It was Perkins money that gave It life and kept Teddy on the ticket. Now that some ot those who did think It was demanded to correct sonie errors, are seeing why and who was put In charge. I hbpe Roosevelt will run for governor of New York. Perkins and all tho money ie can put up will nover carry New York. It Roosevelt runs I want the republicans to put up Ellhu Root and show him, Roosevelt, that we mean to hold him re sponsible for the defeat in 1912. He won't dare meet Root In Joint debate. Then when 1MB comes around let us again call Root to leud the republican national forces. By that time Wilson will have fallen out with Bryan and Clark and perhaps himself gone to sleep, at least the coun try will decide thoy want a change and knowing Just where to find us, they, the people, will ask tis to orice more take up the broken pieces and put them In proper shape for use again. Ellhu Root knows how to do It. It was Root, Taft and Knox who gave- the Roosevelt administra tion all the good things that will go down in history. They also kept him from going onto the rocks many times. Root would make a grand president. Gee, how , other nations would look up to him because they know he knows. Under these prospects, only two years away, do yon suppose for a moment the thinking people of New York are going to lot tho George W. Perkins party come In and take the bakery? C. S. HAMMOND. Snffrnart Preachers, "Women. COUNCIL BLUFFS, June 29,-To the Editor of The Bee: AVhat Is the matter with Father John Williams and the others that took part In a late anti-sUff meeting In Omaha, an account of which l given under the head ot "Woman No Better Than Man?" Tho relative number ot the sex In penal institutions the coun try over gives the Ho to this proposition. One Is reported as saying, "Women are like priests. When- a priest falls her falls lower than a layman, and when a woman falls tho falls lower than a man, never to recover." Having for many years occu pled, a position that compelled me to deal with .all ktpds of criminals 1 never found a Woman fallen so low but a mate crea ture considerably lower wai ready to live on the price of ,ier shame, and I havo known a number of recoveries. How far a priest could fall If he tried I will not attempt to say. Father Williams says he would gtve his head, heart, hands and both feet for suf frage If he thought It would uplift wom anhood. Here the -reverend father Is off his base. It is. man that needs uplifting; and women don't n$ed your head, heart. hands or feet, as they have better ones of their own. I am not In favor ot female suffrage, as It would add one more burden to our women, nor do I bellovo they would have asked It if men had done their whole duty; and If politics are dirty it Is man that made It so. He says the suff revolution In England has oven taken the form of revolt against the church. All right, that needs shaking up. Women should Invade the pulpit In. place of forever cooking and washing dishes for church suppers to support well fed preachers, and the question "Why don't the men attend i-hurch?" would bo answered. The front seats would be filled with gray-haired sinners, and I am not sure but I would be among them. H. H. FIELD. A Question of Spelling. OMAHA, June . To the Editor ot The Bee: Please find attached two clippings from The Omaha Bee ot this date. In one Fontanelle appears and In tho other Fontenelle. Which ts right. Kindly satisfy me and many hundreds ot others. It seems to me that a million dollar hotel should be correctly named. I maintain that Fontanelle is right and Fontenelle wrong and ridiculous. I also notice two firms spelling Arctic. Artie INQUIRER. Note: While good authority supports both, Fontenelle seems to be the now generally accepted spelling. It seems that everybody Is bis own phonetic speller thes days. Not the least ot Mexico's misfortunes cornea from lying so close to the United States and thus offering such strong temptation to our cupldtnous money magnate.

Get Atvnr from Trchnlonl Terms. mis subject Is much simplified when put upon a strictly business basin and discussed In every day language, or In other words, separated as far as possible from technical terms and ambiguous Phrases. Legal technicalities and precedents, too. havo involved It into an almost hopeless Indefinite- nes. but there is no good reason but custom, and that Is not a good reason, for Its being any longer construed or influenced by these precedents which were really based upon an Incomplete and sometimes biased presentation of the evidence. The character istics which affect such values are so diverse that n complete knowledge of operating conditions and developments, and costs of materials throughout tho lire time of a project are naturally essential to its Intelligent consideration for any such comprehensive result as tho placing of an equitable value upon It for any of the various purposes which would require or Involve this value. Ileal Problem that Are Involved. Thus tho real problems Involved are to arrive at a proper value or cost for thoso portions of a plant or property which do not exist today, or which are inaccessible. Theso obsolete features were installed and In tho natural course of developments replaced by improved methods and processes; and In many Instances no complete record of their cost or descrip tion has been kept. They often involved labor and materials which were charged up to operating ex pense and maintenance. While a proper and com plete system of bookkeeping should have segregated them to their proper accounts, it should not be for gotten that the modern cost methods are hardly fifteen yearn old and, although remarkably preco cious, that they are not much better matured than their age would Indicate. Our atato railway commission has been quite tangled up" very recently trying to render dec!- slons which would not conflict with the various prominent court decisions upon similar subjects; but why should they restrict 'themselves thusly when these same decisions are essentially diametrically opposed to one another, or at beVit are so Involved that no two lawyers will construe them alike. Ot course, tho lawyers upon each side tako advant age of the precedents which favor their Interests and much time and wrangling are the result, and the only rcsutt sometimes. Why not forget the past. which Is well known to have been based upon in complete data and prejudiced arguments, and con fine ourselves to the conditions before ua. One definite advance which has, been recorded Is the recent decision of the United States supreme court, that water rights wero a proper Item of value. Any one who has obtained such rights appVeclates tho trouble and expense Involved In obtaining and some times protecting them; but the popular Idea, based upon incomplete knowledge, and the sentiment of thv public press had heretofore predominated. Going Valne" a Ileal Item of Work. "Going value" Is real and must be recognized Just the samo as It ts In cery day business. It has been defined in many complicated and indefinite ways, which account mainly tor the contention as to Its merits. It is the same, but more than the "good will" of a prosperous, business. Its exact value com ponents vary with tho particular proposition under consideration. It would usually be tho net and reasonably secure profits over and above all proper expenses, depreciation and dividends; and this amount capitalized at say 6 per cent, but with proper deduc tions to cover occupation taxes, etc., would repre sent the amount to be added to the other valuation items. Then it should sometimes Include any sys tematic and assured annual Increase of surplus and. on the same principle, any yearly deficits In results should be equitably applied to reduce a valuation Franchise and "water rights" value should be put down for no more than their actual cost, when they are reverting to their original owners. When the original promoters of an enterprise took alt the risks and suffered all the usual anxieties and sacrifices due to the new enterprise, tho Ignoring of going value would withhold all recognition ana re ward for their bravciy, shrewdness and success, un less it has been shown that their surplus profits or other emoluments have already repaid them and that tho conditions and experiences Involved have not warranted any such reward. Vnrjlug Methods Check One A not hex. Tho various methods lately prescribed are not due to any definite difference of Opinion, but rather as a means to tho more nearly reach an equitable result by checking tho ono against the other and thus providing for the obsolete features and the increased real estate alue and the depreciated plant value. Of course, no Injustice Is intended in such affairs and there would bo accordingly but little ground for dis pute If all concerned were properly conversant with nil the details Involved, or if they made such thor ough ind exhaustive studies of the developed feat ures and sought and utilised the experienced and un biased Judgment of others who had managed, de signed and constructed similar projects, when this was plainly tho only means now available to deter mine the probable and reasonable costs desired.

While traveling down to Jerlco, Was wounded, robbed and left for dead. Tho ruffians shared tho spoils and fled. A priest was passing by that way. And stopping where the stranger ia, He heard his feeble, mournful groans, And muttered thus In undertones: "Poor man; could I but spare the tlmo To chant a psalm In measured chime And for this wounded brother pray, Perhaps I might his pains allay; But what's the use, he's nearly dead And mlht not hear a word I said. The priest moves on he's out of sight, Along the path a proud Levlto Approaches, stops, then turns his head. And to his suffering neighbor said: "My worthy friend are you a Jew? And of what ancient tribe are you? You should have gone some other way, Or held those murderous thieves at bay. 'TIs dangerous traveling through these hills, But I've no tlmo to cure your Ills To the house of God I must repair, And swing tho golden censer there. Arrange the altar, fill the bowls, And repeat the prayers for dying souls. Fear not my friend, tho Lord Is nigh. Put all your trust In Him. Good bye." Then came the good Samaritan, Who, lifting up tho wounded man, Poured oil and balm Into hla wound. Then took his cloak, and wrapped him 'round; And when his throbbing pains had ceased. He set him firmly on his beast. And slowly then, with careful feet He bore him to a safe ictreat P. S.
