t In anticipation of the rotn on woman's suf-
se, which is soon lo be tslien In four enpHrn
i-tates, tho I.itersry Digest has been making a
t.atlon-wlde poll of the rrei-s to asrerlaln "the
verdict of the people of the United 8tates on
votes for women." In Its summary of the re
turns by states It says:
i iNeornana is reporw,i to i in inwr "uiiitpc ?
a fair majority 1 uplte flgurea. which Tha Omaha Pee
p-caeiita to i". concernlns the S'lffrago amendment
I submit ted In the I'll elerthn, whlih failed to carry.
However, out of the total Vote of !t,14, the majorlt?
i opposing It was only about lo.nso.
j It goes on to quote answers to Its tnquirlei
by three other Nebraska newspapers, the Fre-
r. cut Tribune, the Columbus Telegram and the
York Republican, with the conclusion:
The wi-ht of optnlon aeems to favor suffrage, for
only two dltora and two communities are reported
nctoally against the proposition.
While th're Is no occasion to re-argne the
suffrage question so fsr as the rerdlot in Ne
braska Is concerned, we Insist that the actual
I returns which we gave to the Literary Digest
vclthout comment or Influence are the best evi
dence. At the election held in 1914, the total
number of ballots was 246,944, the vole for suf
frage was 90,738, and 'tha vote against it
100,84 2, leaving the amendment short of a ma
jority by 10.106. The total number of ballots
marked on that proposition, therefore, was
191,580, more than 55,000 of the voters refrain
ing from expressing themselves at all. In other
words, while 90,738 favored suffrage, 156,206
refused or failed to favor It. Moreover, each
of the counties in which the three newspapers
mentioned are located gave majorities against
suffrage.
Whether public sentiment in Nebraska has
changed since last November enough to transfer
the adverse majority of 1914 to the other eol
imn Is pure speculation, but why the Literary
1)1 Kest should go outside the record to reach a
different finding from what the official figures
warrant Is puszllng to say the least.
Six of One Half Dosen of T'other.
Recalling the loud uproar raised in certain
quarters over the placing of the Anglo-French
loan through our American bankers, it is inter
esting to observe in the latest Issue of "Father
land," which Is the staunch advocate in this
country of "fair ploy for Germany," an appeal
made to the Germans in America in the form
tf an advertisement of a Chicago firm of "Ger
'man bankers," asking subscriptions to the third
Herman war loan. '"Ought not we Germans in
America," it says, "to help to the best of our
ability toward the success of this new loan by
subscribing to it, and thereby relieving the
brothers in the fatherland T" And again: "As
long as this heroic fight for Germany's freedom
and existence lasts, where our brothers risk
their lives. It should be the sacred duty of all
Germans In the United 8tates to place their sav
ings at the disposal of the fatherland to whom
they owe so much."
When we were discussing the Anglo-French
loan, The Bee suggested that it was not a ques
t'on of neutrality or of sympathy on either side,
but purely a business transaction. In truth, the
chief difference between the two loans from the
Investor's viewpoint is that the offer of the Ger
man 6 per cent loan is at 99, while only 98 is
asked for the Anglo-French loan bearing "the
seme rate of Interest, and that the former comes
in denominations as low as 100 marks a little,
less than $25 -while the latter stops at $100,
It is merely six of one and half a doseh of t'other
when war bonds are floated over here.
Bate for Carrying' Passengers. '
Chairman Clarke of the Nebraska Railway
commission has filed a brief with the Interstate
Commerce commission, In which he takes the
negative end of each proposition laid down by
the railroads In favor of an increase in the pas
senger rates. He presents his own reasons for'
holding that the 2-cent rate is compensatory,
and strongly contends that the proportionate
passenger earnings of the roads are more re
munerative than the freight returns.
It would seem that this problem might be
solved with much less of red tape. Railroad
accounting is coming to be of such nature that
facta are hopelessly befogged In a mass of
figures, the exact meaning of which is differ
ently determined by different experts, to the end
that exact information is seldom or never given
the public. It ought to be easy to determine
the exact cost of carrying a passenger one mile
fender normal conditions. The elements that
enter Into the problem are already known, or
are readily ascertainable, and from these the
unit should be deduced.' With this factor estab
lished, the next step would be to determine what
proportion of the total cost of operating should
bo charged to passenger traffic, and the rest
would be easy.
Railroad rates and rate-making have gone
far beyond reason in complication and should
bo reduced to some simpler terms that they may
be better understood by the public, which is the
party most at interest. T ..
A current statement that many Kansas state
tanks are obliged to decline deposits has an im
pressive appearance standing alone. A different
face appears when it is explained that Kansaa
banks are prohibited by law from taking de
posits exceeding ten times the capital and sur
plus. Banks loaded to that limit are put to the
ralnful duty of turning away money.
Mr. Bryan's resignation from the premier
ship of the administration last summer dovetails
with his announcement of permanent retirement
from office and office seeking. His interest In
I u bite affairs and public questions will continue
unabated, and those who. attempt to push his
friends from the pie counter may get their meas
ure on the mat. Knockera, beware!
Somebody writes to our amiable democratic
contemporary protesting against opening its col
umns to a notoriety seeking agnostic for sc ur
inous attacks not only upon Christianity, but
upon all religion, demanding that they be "di
verted by way of the waste baket." That is ex
actly what happened to them when the aame
screeds were offered to The Bee.
Brother Barge haa great confidence in Mr,
Pryaa'g preaching when he assures a conference
of Nebraska democrats urging a poetmastrrshtp
candidate against Mr. Bryan's choice "that they
vlll not be condemned for ' tbelr freedom of
thought and its expression." The freedom of
tfought that Mr. Bryan approves and tvtols Is
tie kind that trrecs with him.
Omaha and Letter Carriers

aa to become tiresome. IVUghlful weather greeted
the marchers, which, -omntned with the liea'itlful
wide, smooth and level street, made tha pervlo it
most aurceraful spectacle.

What will perhapa live longest In the memoriea of
those so fortunate ss to be present waa lefar carrie s'

tinctly a western Institution, Its objects being to pro
mote a better spirit among Omaha's buslnoaa men snd
toward Omaha by tha state of Nebraska and the
outside world. That It haa attained Its alma and en
hanced the prestige of Qmaha and tha middle west is
attested by the thouaanda of visitors who have en.
Joyed Its hospitality and been Introduced to tha mys
teries of the land of King ftamaon. letter carriers'
night was replete with fun then fun and yet more
fun. A number of our members bore with fortitude
the vicissitude of Initiation and thereby won . th
plaudits of tha throngs of carriers and other guests.
Preceding the Initiation "The Isle of Pep," a musical
melange, was artistically staged, and In the vernacular
"It was scream. " Following the initiations true
Omaha western hospitality was dispensed In tha rear
of the spacious Auditorium, to the accompaniment of
excellent music by the letter carrier bands. A royal
entertainment by a big-hearted people waS the uni
versal verdict.
Trlbate Oaaaha'a Flrat-Claea Pnitmailer,
We would be lacking In appreciation and gratitude
did we fall to mention the activity and Interest of
John C. Wharton, Omaha's aggressive and pro
gressive postmaster. . Beneath his smiling exterior
there bests a heart that throbs In aympathy with his
fellow men, no matter what their station in life. Dur
ing the entire week ha was here, there and every
where, his whole desire being to contribute to our
comfort, convenience and entertainment. Mr. Whar
ton la a real postmaster and a real man. Tha Na
tional Association of Latter Carriers wishes for hlra
a long life of activity and usefulness In any sphere to
which his talents and ambition may call him, and as
sures hirrr that his kind and courteous treatment of
our delegates and friends will be a cherished memory
aa long aa tha National Association of Itter Carriers
endures;
A llwapllable People anal Preamslre City.
If the delegates and visitors failed to enjoy them
selves, during convention week at Omaha It must lie
attributed to themselves alone. Ably assisting Post
master Wharton and the carriers' committee were the
officials of, the postofflce, city officials, the news
papers In fact, the entlrs population of the thriving
mld-westera metropolis. Nothing seemed to havo
been left undone to contribute to our pleasure, and t
express a wlssi was to have It Instantly complied with.
Branch 6, as a whole, and Its loyal and efficient con
ventlon committee are to be congratulated upon the
unqualified anocess of convention week, and those in
Attendance will never forget their untiring efforts to
make them feel at home and among friends. Tha
visiting women were eared for and entertained In a
manner that left nothing to" be desired and ware loud
In their praises of Omaha and the local Ladies' auxil
iary. Tha business sessions of tha National Ladles'
Auxiliary convention war held at the Hotel Fon
tenelle. Omaha, a a convention city, proved sonw
what of a surprls In point of attendance a many
had thought that the high water mark of Rochestei
would not b reached. But It went beyond that, as
there were l.HT accredited delegates on the floor, wlti
seventeen state presidents, twenty-three national of
ficers and twenty-five delegates at large.

"I wonder what It could have been," said Mrs. Oeer.
"I'm sure I heard something."
"So did I." said Hy; "but the car's all right"
They were almost aslep, when sudctonly Mrs. Oeer

Back tm Protect! Tariff.
f HFLBTVILLE, Tenn., Oct. lO.-To
the Editor of The Bee: Having a
few moments spar time decided to send
you a few seral-political lines. I am still
a cltlsen and voter In th Oolden Rod
state, but my Interests here have retained
Cne six weeks and will about two weeks
longer before I return to Omaha. Have
been absent almost three months with a
month on the coast, and tha more I se
of th conditions in our United States of
America th stronger protectionist I am.
My protection Idea Is to protect all our
people so as to provide employment for
over lS.ono.flOO now Idle and relief for
over eo.ono.OOO men. women and children
now suffering because the earning power
of families Is Idle.
If the national republican party has a
desire To return and control our govern
ment then the paryt as a whole roust
com out In favor of stopping labor Im
migration and or advancing th tariff suf
ficient to stop Importations of whst our
people can and should produce.
I have been In continual business fifty
three years and have never longed for a
public efflc and do not now, but these
years of business experience and covering
our United States of America from th
Atlantta to th Pacific and from Canada
to the gulf and t hav traversed these
sections many tlntesj and I know some
thing about the actual Workings of labor
Immigration and a tariff of free trad
and for revenue only (same as tho pres
ent destructive tariff) or a low, medium
or high protective tariff, and according
to my Ideas our highest protective tariff
waa too low en articles our people ran
and should produce. With ray Ideas herein
stated I bellev th republican party can
even carry Tennessee, Kentucky, Mis
souri and West Virginia, and carry Over
whelmingly every former republican
state. H. N. JEWETT.

COUNCIL BLUFF, la., Oct. .-To th
Editor of The Bee: R. C. B. Is complain
ing about th music at the tabernacle.
He made It plain enough that he didn't
like It. but the funny part of it is, he
didn't tell us what was wrong with it.
He is just Jealous of, and prejudload
against, tho affair that be didn't have
sense enough to keep still about It, so he
had to blurt out something without any
foundation to It. He shows his Ignor
ance of music. Of course, the choir can't
sing operas or mu&jc like the Boston
Symphony orchestra plays, but I would
like to se him lead a ohotr of that sis
with some of th songs they sing.
S What la th objection to the music i It
is, of course, simpler In construction than
the opera, but according to th laws of
compositon and harmony, with which I
am not so very unfamiliar, the songs are
very well constructed. Th remarks
about "Rody" and th piano show jeal
ousy, ao they are funny. Mr. Rodehoaver
and Mr. Brewster are both broad-minded,
iiou-oonceited. professional musicians. If
I didn't Ilk them I would have more
sense than to criticise them In public. It
shows where th shoe pinches.

TILDEN, Neh.. Oct. lO.-To th Editor
of Th Be: 'TIs rather grating on the
nerves to hav a row of antl-Btllyite-Bus-sard
a spewing out the'r stenchful belch
ings all over our peaceful Letter Box,
and then a group of frantic pro-Blllyttes
will fly to th defense of this Irreslst
able cyclone. "Billy"' Sunday does not
need any defonse; he Is well able to car

well try to cram Old Jumbo Into the
northeastern corner of the attic of a
thimble as to try to put "Billy" into the

ually on the front page and usually takes
several other pages with hlin In the

Wh are we, anyway? whether "antis"
or "proa" we'd better stay In our class
and not presume to howl at tha "sun"
that shines as the frontlsplec on the

Tlie letter Box Is our sine, and "Billy"

and proposing the organisation of a new

being occasioned by "Billy's" campaign.
At first 'Hilly" pi ay seem to favor tha

In case that would b don there would
b no place to Anally ship th remains
of such a pack of blear-yd, "yellow
