GreateT Omaha-
AfiFumlng that the connolldation bill will bo
nigned by the governor and eventually berome
a law substantially' as pawed by the house,
Greater Omaha seems to be practically ansured,
although several steps are yet to ba taken before
that consummation can be reached.
The house amendment accepts the view that
the Inhabitants of the area to be included con
stitute only a single community, but to make
sura that popular sentiment may prevail, re
quires an expression of sentiment of a majority
of all the people affected to make the act oper
ative on them.
. It Is possible the opposition may ba content
with their measure of success in postponing the
time of completing the merger. It would seem
that at tha earliest the consolidation vote could
not ba bad sooner than our Impending city elec
tion, and , possibly may go over till later. It Is
also possible, of course, that antagonistic, Inter
ests may Interpose legal obstacles to secure still
further postponement.
While the first skirmish line has been car
ried, tha champions of Greater Omaha must not
disband their force nor relax their efforts be
fore the finish.'
Down Brakes on the Jitneys.
While- we are bound to have auto mishaps
from time to time, the succession of Jitney acci
dents in Omaha, the last one a fatality, makes
it Imperative that some immediate attention be
given in this direction. The use of our streets
by Jitneys will have to be subjected to regula
tion in the Interest of safety to both passengers
and pedestrians.. All the service the Jitneys
may render in relieving traffic congestion is not
worth the life of even one Innocent school boy
helpless to save himself.
If reckless and .Irresponsible auto driving Is
a necessary part of the Jitney business, wetiad
better find It out right away. If tha Jitneys
cannot be made reasonably safe we can afford
far better to do without them. Under the cir
cumstances the Jitney people ought to welcome,
and, themselves urge, tha adoption of soma ra
tional system of regulation' which will apply to
all alike and with which all of them , will be
made to conform before mora accidents stimu
late aa uprising against them' altogether.'
The proposal to change the constitution
of our Nebraska supreme court so as to make
the Judges-elective by district corresponding to
the congressional districts Is a vicious scheme.
Jf there is any logical reason prompting it, no
one has advanced It nor have wa even seen a
pretense that to have them so chosen vould
tend to improve the character of tha Judges or
facilitate their work.
While district representation is right and
proper in legislative bodies to Insure a propor
tionate voice in law-making to all the people,
and 'to hold the law-makers responsible each to
his constituency, no such theory of representa
tion will apply to tba Judiciary, because Justice is
not and should not be conditioned on locality
Nebraska is only one of forty-eight states in
the union, and the present constitution of tha
Nebraska supreme court corresponds wUb tho
generally accepted system that has been tried
and proved by experience. Our supreme court
was enlarged only a few years ago by the addi
tion of four more Judges, but uo one at that
time thought to project this new-fangled
scheme, which would surely have jeopardised
the entire amendment.
If tha legislature performs Its duty Instead
of trying to pull some one's legal chestnuts cut
of the fire, It will save the voters the necessity
of rejecting this proposal.
The Canner and the Commissariat.
Tha unique position of the United States as
regards foodstuffs has Just been emphasised at
a canners' convention in Chicago. Famine U Im
possible in this country, and more than that,
at no season of the year are Its Inhabitants cut
off from all the good things nature provides for
man's sustenance. . A wonderful range of cli
mate makes It possible to have the year around
green vegetables and fruits grown In th open,
and at prices in reach of tha humblest pocket
book. This Is supplemented by the art of th
canner, who successfully preserves the sum
mer's surplus bounty against the cold, grsy day
of winter and robs that season of any terror It
might a-ver have hld, ao far as food Is con
cerned. It Is not alone famine that is avoided, but
certain diseases one prevalent, due to malnu
trition Incident to a lark of proper food, have
vanished from th United States. In this way th
processes of preserving foods have also beeji use
ful 'In tha matter of preservation of health.
Most important of all, and chief element in
oar greatness, tha dinner table 'of the American
workman is dally. .furnished icrth with such far
as. makes him the envy of the world outside.
Even Lucullus did not have tha gaatronomical
advantagea that are enjoyed' by the cltUens of
th United States and by them taken aa a mat
ter of course. This is surely a wonderful coun
try. ; .
Dtiervss Decoration at Least.
Peace has its heroes as wall as its victories,
"no less renowned han those of war.'and on
of these has Just modestly acclaimed himself at
Terr Haute.. He. testified la federal court there
that he had .worn blisters on his hands pulling
tha democratic -lever on a voting machine; hi
devotion -to the'cauB wa such that thla disa
bility, did not caus him to dblst, but, armeJ
with a stick, ha persisted. In bis purpos of reg-
istering democratic vote untlVthe close of a day

NORTH LOUP, Neb.. March I8.-T0 the
Editor of The Ree: Tha public ha been
attracted to the matter of th so-called
discovery of a process by Walter T.
Rlttman, by which more gasoline may be
obtained from mineral oil. A you ar
well aware,' ganolme end kerosene eome
from the same tank and the difference
I In th gravity of the liquids. The or
dinary method of refining these oil Is the
procs of boiling th crude' oil In a
Closed tank, or bollqr. by. which a vapor
I made and conveyed to a second tank,
wher th vapor I distilled. That pro-
ces I what may be called a "saturated
vapor" process. Where thl process) -I.
used, the kerosene, gasoline and allied
products all bear a certain relation. That
relation ia that the molecule of the oil
remain undisturbed by the process of re
fining. Any person who ha atudled "sat
urated steam" may hav a good Idea of
saturated oil vapor. .In th process of
making white lead, a cyatem of super
heating Is used by which th molecule
are changed.
In making a practical study of th
nature of keroaene and gasoline, three -year
ago, I found that oil companies
might increase th amount of volatile oil
by a proce of superheating 'th atur- '
atad oil vapor by passing th vapor
through a superheater and the to the
distilling tank. Many others, too, had
been working on th nam matter. Other
probably run onto th same Improved
process, but none aeem to have made an
attempt to get a patent on the process.
I think tbs patent office records will ahow
that no Inventor previous to 1914 evor
made an application for a patented
process by which to superheat oil vapor,,
thereby Increasing the amount of volatile'
oil. I had apprehended that if act and on
August 3. 1914, filed an application In
the patent office with full and complete
descriptions ,of the process,
Th process converts the oil vapor to a
complete ga and th gas is converted
beck to a liquid In the aeme process, by
I do not believe that Mr. Rlttman ha
any rrocesa for making gasoline that
doe not Include my process of super
heating. It the atent office records do
not already contain my p rones I am
entitled to the right and it la hardly th
businea of other people to give away
my property to the public. A mixture of
oil and greaa will not change the process.
At the Mm of making th experiments
I mad another application for patent
right on the same subject, bat with re
spect to burning oil inside a boiler under
pressure. The number of the patent is
1.N7.M7 aad the application wa mad
March 1. 1111 Thent la room for a law
suit on thl subject, but there can ba no
mistake a to my application. Befor tha
government get too far It will be a good
ide to find It Rlttman ha a discovery
which doe not Infringe tay application.
