If the Railroad Ken are Wise.
It U gratifying to note that Tbe Bee is not
alone In suggesting to the railroads the danger
of overdoing things In their efforts to raise rales
nil along the line. The New York Evening Tout,
which could never be put by the railroads in the
"unfriendly" class, also cautions against undo
ing the present public sentiment which Is plainly
disposed to give the railroads a fair deal as never
before. What the Post urges is "that the great
opportunity now before them ought to be util
ized by the railroads' managers in the wisest
way." It declares further that, If they want to
avoid trouble later, "while strengthening their
position and making financial provision for the
future, the railroads are under obligation to
avoid repetition of the scandals of tbe past to
prevent abuse of capitalization, wrongs of re
organization or consolidation and stock ex
change manipulation wblch would give dema
gogues every chance to throw the whole railway
situation into confusion and gloom again."
What the railroad men must remember is
that the era of good feeling toward them can be
prolonged only by not abusing It, and that deeds
rather than words will be the final test of their
professed desire to work in harmony with pa
trons and public.
New Things in Warfare.
The British imperial council is accused of
writing an entire new chapter in international
law, in the order promulgated to establish an
ocean-wide blockade of German traffic. This
order Is unprecedented, as pointed out, but o
also U the German submarine campaign. Other
novelties presented for the edification of the
world by the present war are the forty-two cen
timeter gun, the armored airship, the radio tele
graph, the armed motor car, and numerous other
features, prominent enough now, but unheard of
before tbe .conflict of arms commenced last
August.
AH the nations hsve improved their capacity
for destruction by adapting the best results of
Invention and discovery to the arts of war. One
surprise after another has followed, as one or
the other of the Combatants has disclosed his
preparations for the conflict. It would hav
been remarkable, Indeed, if the diplomats of the
world had not made some innovations along'
with the warriors and therefore, the new prin
ciples of so-called international law, now exhi
bited to public view for the first time should oc
casion less astonishment than they otherwise
fwould. ,
The mistreatment of neutrals, more than
anything else, argues for the necessity of a con
vention that will rigidly preserve the world's
peace. This will be the overshadowing problem
when order is once more brought about. Thei
an entire new international code will bave to be
formulated, founded on the fundamentals of Jus
tice for all, regardless of comparative strength
or military resources, that will do equal Justice
to little nations as well as to big ones.
The School that Father Attended.
"It's a better room, tbaa I went to when 1
was a boy." said a member of the school board,
when Inspecting a building that is complained
cf. Of course It Is. What man of mature age
today would want toisend his child to the school
he attended when he was a youngster, unless he
was especially favored among raortalsT It would
be little credit to us if this were not so.
Progress has been, made In every other ac
tivity of life, and the schools have been the bene
ficiary of most of tbe fruits of man's advance in
knowledge. As for father, he is not a hopeless
back number, but he has to hustle all tbe time to
keep up with the procession, for the march of
learning is proceeding at'-a' rate he never
dreamed of when he attended the little red
school house, and took his limited sips at the
Plerean spring. And the school house is thj
monument to our culture, the outward and vis
ible sign of the value we put upon Intellectual
attainments, and therefore it should be in keep
ing always with the Importance of the com
munlty.
The best Is not too good for the school, but
this must not be taken as an argument for ex
travagance In provision or management, for the
moHt useful lesson that can be taught at school
la prudent thrift, and thla may be in no way
better exemplified than In the school building
Itself.
Making Voting Compulsory.
A bill pending In tbe legislature at Lincoln
to Impose a poll tax to be remitted to all voters
who take part In every election, raises the old
question of making voting compulsory. While
the right of the state to compel a man lo vote.
or to punish him if he falls to do so, Is being de
bated, the more pertinent discussion will evolve
about the point of practicability, for although
every one concedes that the electoral franchise
carries with It the duty to help choose all public
officials, nowhere that we know of has any de
vice to make voting compulsory worked success
fully In practice. Tbe queer thing in this con
nection is that the poll tax haa been resorted to
in the south, not to force participation In elec
tions, but to keep tbe negroes from voting, and
thus to disfranchise them without colliding with
the color discrimination. ;
Again, It is doubtful whether comnulsorv vot
ing will give us more Intelligent voting. If a
man has no choice between candidates, If igno
rant of their relative merits or otherwise, to force
him to make a choice would add merely an ele
ment of guesswork, which would probably be
offset In the totals without helping to decide
anything. It holds forth, at any rate, no assur
ance of -better government.
Reports of the feeble health of Emperor
Francis, Joseph of Austria no doubt haVe some
basis of truth. In peace times a monarch well
into his eighty-fifth year would be an object of
mortuary solicitude. Oppressed as he must be
by tbe burdens and anxieties of a war Imperiling
!' empire, the fact that he has survived seven
months of It Is a tribute to his marvelous physi
cal powers and abstemious habits.
Nebraska undertakes to go Pennsylvania It
better by -proposing a 16 tax on stay-at-home
voters, tbe money to be refunded In two 'equal
parts if the taxpayer votes at the primaries and
again at the general election. The most inter
eating feature of the scheme is the talent re
quired to collect and hand back the money with
out shrinkage.
r txotob Mifwiin,
A MERIOAN Journal lam has suffered a teal Ion
l by the death of Pamuel Bowles, which waa
chronicled from PprlnrHeld, Maea,. a few days
ago. The hleh standing of the SprtngTleid Republican
and of Mr. Bowles aa Ita editor, long ago lrapreaaed
very one In touch In any way with the newspapers
of the country. But the fact that Mr. Bowlea hap
pened to he, a member of the edltorlat party that
toured Mexico on the occasion of Its centennial cele
bration, to which I have recently referred In this
column, gave me aeveral weeks' pleasant association
with him. and an opportunity to become aequaintel
with his delightful personality. Although In outward
appearance of the atern New England Puritan type.
and hailed aa "the dean" of .the editorial crew. It did
not take long to find that he could unbend and enter
fully Into tha spirit of the escurston.' He was our
spokesman more than once In responding to ad
dresses of welcome, and Ms talks were scholarly and
appropriate. We all wrots accounts to our respec
tive papers of the celebrations in which we partici
pated, and Mr. Bowles' letters reflected Ms keen
powers of observation and graphic style of compo!
tlon. I took it as a special compliment that tha letter
I wrote to The Bee describing the centennial exer
cises In Mexico City was also printed In the Spring-
field Republican.
The Samuel Bowles who. lust died is the eon of
the Pamuel Bowles who founded the Springfield Re
publican, and Is the father of another Samuel Bowles
who will doubtless be the third of the name to con
trol tKat paper. Going back to the founding of Tha
Bee there Is a connecting link la an Incident, which
has elready been told, but which will bear repeating.
The original plan was to start a paper here to voice
the element that was dissatisfied with the j!d Omaha
Republican, and letters were written to several of the
leading republican Journalist ef tbe, day to Interest
them In the project or to ask their advice, among
others to Horace Oreeiy. Joseph Madtll and Samuel
Bowles. The reply of the elder Bowles, written all
In his own hand, was ss follows:
"SPRINGFIELD. -Mass., March U UTO-My Xtoar.
fir: Tour suggestions are very flattering. I should
like on many accounts to share in tbe upbuilding of
a good Journal at Omaha, but I fear It Is altogether
out of the question. I am pretty strongly anchored
here.
"It Is a very difficult thing, nay Impossible, to
Improvise either a Journalist or a Journal. I cannot
at this moment put my thought upon a man worthy
of your opportunity! But I may be able in a day .
or two to suggest one for you.. What you ought to.
do Is to buy out the present republican psper, and
then get better men Into It.- I advise thla moat
earnestly. It la a great deal better and easier than
to undertake to crush It by a rival. I am, yours
truly, SAM-'t, BOWLES."
Mr. E. Rosewater, Omaha.
From this It will ba lean that the Invltatioa waa
Issued to Mr. Bowles to come out to Omaha himself,
and take charge of the proposed nsw paper, and that
while he brushed It aside, he did so very gently and
very politely. Not to. leave the reader in the air,- I
may add that the then proposed newspaper waa
actually started under, tha name of tha Omaha Trib
une, which for one reason and another proved to be
a very short-lived publication, and In Its wake The
Bee appeared with Ita Initial bow a year later.
I have at hand a copy ef the brief la tha famous
Leo M. Frank case sent me by Louis Marshall, one
of tha leaders among New Tork lawyers. Who argued
the appeal for Frank In the supreme' court of the
United States. Mr. Marshall waa here last year to
represent the plaintiffs In what is known as "the St
Joseph Grand Island case" In our federal district
court, and at the last election he received the highest
vote cast for anyone for delegata-at-large to the forth
coming New Tork state constitutional convention. His
brief in the Frank case elucidates many points that
had been previously obscured and develops a unique
theory to the effect that all the proceedings of the
trial and of tha subsequent stops In the state courts
of Georgia were In contravention ef Frank's constitu
tional rights,, and therefore null and void. In a word,
the supreme rourV could by accepting' Mr. Marshall's
construction of the- law Invalidate the trial without
affecting tha indictment, and without opening the way
for Frank to claim his freedom on the ground that
he had already once been put In Jeopardy. This would
leave It to the authorities In Georgia to declda after
wards whether or not another trial en the original
Indictment should be had. .
Twice Told Tales
JVeer Had Kaa.
- Old Pick was an old plantation darkey. He was
rarely If ever sick and he alwsys claimed that It was
the way he had lived. One day as he was walking down
the street, a local merchant taking advantage of his
Ignoranoe, accosted him. thus:
"Dick, one yourj best friends has Just told ma that
you have ancestors of the worst sort."
"Now. look heah, Cap'tn Oawg., I doan want to
hurt nobody, but I Jes want to know who dat man
was, wot tol you, and I sho will go alter him 'causa
ha done gone and 'suit me. .Me got ancestors? Why.

Miss Briglitman kept a very attractive little tea

"You know, Mlsa Bristol," remarked the pro
prietress, as she glanced around, "there Is a great
deal In having your sandwiches look attractive."
"Yes, Miss Biightman, I know It," was the reply.

A Call for Cirsmlsl.
NORTH LOUP. Neb.. March IT -To the
Editor of The Bee: Will the republican
party regain Its former ' standing as a
political power in the nation? That de
pends on the management. If we nomi
nate a candidate for the presidency
whose record Is admittedly with certain
commercial Interests which have regularly
controlled public affairs and legislation
w may expect defeat. If we nominate
a candidate whose record is in the In
terest of the public we may expect suc
cess. Senator Albert B. Cummin of
Iowa Is the preferable candidate of the
people. He i very, strong in his state
arid In the country. With all the power
of the present democratic administration
In association with Wall street financiers,
Cummins was re-e'ected to the senate
by 60,000 plurality, Hv we any other
man with such a record? '
It has been thought wise to nominate
candidates from the east, but that day
Is past. With the advantages of the
Panama canal, the great central states
want direct communication by navigation
through the MlsaisMppI and . Mux-ouri
rivers to the sea.. The eastern financiers
and the present democratic administration
are opposing that policy. What stronger
argument can he made for Senator Cum
mins? ) .
- There is no question as to the position
ef the present administration on the im
provement of our river for water power
and navigation. They have stood In the
way of Improving Nebraska rivers for
water power; that fact being conspicuous
In the legislatures of 1918 and 1915. If any

The spot where angels stop to rest.

White wings enfolded on each breast
Killarney, oh. Klllarney!
