Getting Back.
The dinner ot repobllcana at Lincoln may b
taken aa indicative of Urn spirit that now ani
mate tha party In Nebraska. "Getting back"
is not a problem, ot strategy or tactic, but
merely a question of time. The people are rap
Idly tiling of the failure of toe democrats (
make good on any of their promises. Bare tin.
one that they would, aa far aa possible, sma-h
tip all the republican party bad constructed.
So far, the smashing tip process has been very
complete and very successful. Bute and nation
alike suffer from the effects of the experiment of
allowing the democrats to try their theories of
government. Congressman Sloan mildly pictures
the outcome In these words:
Two yeara art) we turned over to the democratic
party tha country at the noonday of Ita existence
with all department. In good condition, but today
after only two years of power, we find a depleted
treasury and every department In trouble.
Divisions among republicans are rapidly dis
appearing, and its united forces will surely re
store to power the party of truly progressive
policies. More than mere party success is in
volved In the approaching campaign. The des
tiny of the country rests with the republican
party, and It Is the future that concerns the
voter, more than the past. The signs of change
are multiplying.
Serious Breach of Hospitality.
The editor of a great Paris newspaper, re
cently Is Washington, cabled home to bis paper
purported Interview with President Wilson,
which the latter gentleman repudiates in toto.
The patriotic seal of the editor seems to have
led him into a serious breach of hospitality.
While the president of the United States may
have said word or two of friendly Interest to
th editor when the French ambassador pre
sented bis distinguished countryman, It Is highly
Improbable that be indulged In any extended
comment on the war In any of its phases. It Is
unreasonable to think that Mr. Wilson would
fall Into the blunder of making statements that
would .five "aid and comfort" to either of the
combatants, )
Little of real harm will result from the In
cident, but It serves to show how Jealously the
nations Involved .are watching and bow eagerly,
they scire upon any. point that may be turned to
advantage' .
The Mechanics of the City Election. '
Confronted with an Important city election
only a few' days off, our people seem by their
UstlessneBfl to be largely unprepared for meeting
the requirements Involved in expressing a pre
liminary choice from among the long list of can
didates seeking their favor. This, perhaps, Is
due In part to th distractions of other pressing
subllo questions and to the continuous talk of
postponement, but also In part to failure" to
grasp the mechanics of the election.
. Let us. therefore, impress it again upon one
and all that tha so-called city primary, which Is
scheduled to take place next Tuesday, Is Ln real
ity not a nominating primary, but an elimination
election; that of the seventy-three names on the
ballot only fourteen will appear on the ballot in
tbe regular election to be hold five weeks' later.
Under our commission plan scheme, abmlnattons
are made not by primary, but by tbe petitions
accompanying the filings, and nominations have
been closed.
f At the Impending preliminary election, each
voter may Indicate his choice for not to exceed
even candidates7, the top fourteen to go on the
official ballot, from which he will, again select
seven.' jit is imperative, therefore, that suffi
cient concentration be secured In tbe elimination
race to keep enough good men In the runn'ng
for the finals that a satisfactory selection of suit
able material, may be bad out ot the fourteen
who stand high In the first count. '
Our advice. la for each voter to study tha
qualifications and capabilities of the different
Candidates and, with such disinterested help anu
dvics as may be had, to make their decisions
before going to the polls.
'. . Vfhat About Hucrtat
It Is reported-from Spain 'that Hncrta has
sailed for Argentina, Ills ultimate destination
being Mexico, where he proposes 'to bead an
other,' section 'of the many-sided ; ''revolution"
now ,1a progress in that unhappy country. The
muddle will be all tbe more delightfully murky
should the ex-dlotator add , bis presence at this
time. Huerta Is tbe most, vigorous of all thil
leaders who have arisen since the demonstration
sgalnst Plas took head, and showed In his short
time the most capacity for real government
' CTarranta' star seems to be statlonsry, If not
waning.', Villa Is pursuing his former chief with
more vigor than he exhibited against Huerta,
and bis prowess 1 still potent.' An Interesting
light on the nature of the soldiery Is shown by
the Associated Press dispatch, Which tells of ho
a body of Villa's troops, mistaking a bugla call,
mad their way into a Carr ansa camp, and find
ing where they were promptly transferred their
allegiance to a new "leader.." This Is qulta an
Illuminative commentary en the chsracter of th
army of liberation," the on common Impulse
or fsctor of cohesion being plunder and rapine.
Uncle Bam Is1 still patrolling the border, still
annoyed by the Immediate presence ot the com
batants, who pwBlateutly bring their battles
right to the border. "Watchful wafting" is
being' sorely tried by 'these maneuvers.
. . ' Start Public Improvement Early.
. This Is tbe time to urge an early start of
whatever program ot public improvements may
ba planned tor Omaha for the coming season.
Our trouble each year has ' almost Invariably
been that the preliminaries, are prolonged, and
contracts delayed so that Jobs of paving, sewer
building and the like either hav to be rushed
to their detriment to get In ahead ot the cold
weather or hang over unfinished till the next
season.; It Is seldom, moreover, that such d-
Isys could not have been avoided by more timely
proceedings - at tb. outsat. .We do not know
how It Is la this respect in other cities, but It Is
certainly possible for Omaha to do better in ex
pedlting this class of outdoor Improvement work.

The city conrmlaaloners hav learned a new atrld
which la known as tha campaign canter. It consist
ot moving th feet In a sort of double-ehulfl. th
effect being that the body I moved forward at an
alactrltou rat of speed, rather undignified for a
public official.
There'a a reason.' , '
This Is th season when candidates are atopped by
all sorts and condition of men with all aorta and
conditions of requests and pleadtnga .
. Thla state of affair ha become so marked that
publlo business la threatened with aartous Interference.
A special policeman was placed In th city hall to
keep out professional political moochera, bat th police
man has been-with drawn and th eld order returneth.
Then the commie loners hit upon th Idea of assuming-
a myopic condition and accelerating their gait
by throwing their feet Into high speed. This works
like a charm. . i ;
It Is am mrlng-te see Commissioner Kugel, for In
stance, doing a hot foot up Far nam street toward th
olty hall and then do a marathon until he reaches th
elevator. V ... -
"Bay, At, Just a minute!" Importunes a. wayfarer.
Kugnl speed on, turning neither te th right r.or
to the loft
"Say; Al, oaa I you for a second T" Is another
salutation. , '
At the rate Al la going It la posslbls to saa him
only for a second. '
This sudden and simultaneous buret of speed by
the vote-chasers lends a bit of levity to an otherwise
dull campaign- It Is good moving picture atuff.

The Idea or getting married and remain

throughout a long life eh owe a want ot
taste aad refinement and the sanctity
supposed to be connected with th mar
riage relation la only a species of hum
bug contrived to darxle the Imagination
of tha vulgar. Women especially ought
to study this divorce question, and learn
to take advantage of, and appreciate
their privilege la this direction. If your
husband baa but SIS a week salary, and
haa no prospect of promotion, he Is a
rascal, and you hav only to apply to a
lawyer In order to obtain counsel, con

plead involuntary servitude, unexpected

or you may charge him with chronlo

nepotism, fanaticism and panudo-sanctt-rnonlousnesa
I am of the opinion that
men who commit thee crimes are unde
serving of tha boundless and undying love
which women everywhere ara showering
upon their worthies husband. O women,

How Advertising Service
Has Made Us Grow
The progress of an Institution la measured by Its services to others
and usually la reflected In physical else. Superior advertlsing
marchaadlslng service haa brought progress and rapid growth to us,
requiring us to sextuple our offices in one year.
That Is because we give to accepted clients far greater service than
mere copy-writing and schedule-making for we prepare a sound
merchandising foundation for the advertising campaign to stand
upon before w flra tha first gun. Thla takes time but it pay.
If you desire to open, to broaden or to stimulate a market for
anything that humans use, an interview should profit both oi us.
In Omaha and nearby, there are a acore of manufacturer
