O I MKU 1 MINGS THAN Oil. OR COAL.
When certain of tha goml things that nature
hnd to bestow wore being paused around, Nebraska
was out of luck. No great coal measure underlie*
the stale, no oil pool* have been located, nor ex
tensive deposit* of mineral or building atone. To
t ompcnsate for thia, Nebraska got a soil ao fertile
that it will grow anything that can be grown in the
temperate rone. Most of it can he grown better
than that produced elsewhere.
All around Nebraska coal ia found. Every state
touching our borders has its coal fields. This is ex
plained by the statement that when the forests from
which the coal was formed were growing in Iowh,
Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming and South
Dakota. Nebraska was a great salt water basin. It
is said by scientists that in those days the Nebraska
waters were connected with the Gulf of Mexico, and
extended across the northern boundary into Canada.
This water subsequently was drained off. leaving be
hind » great basin, formed by a synclinal fold in the
earth’s crust, tilled with sand and gravel. Geologists
have estimated that near the center of th# state bed
rock is from 15,000 to 20,000 beet below the sur
face. Along the Missouri river at Omaha, for ex
ample, the depth is around 2,000 feet, while at Sioux
Falls a jasper ridge sticks above the surface, and at
Wall lake in Iowa a similar phenomenon is noted.
« • •
While it does not pay to be dogmatic on any
subject, the geological history of Nebraska is against
coal, and probably against oil. But when the wild
winds that swept the world after the glacial age
were whirling about the Ice ground dust, Nebraska
got its share. “Loess” 1* a word meaning dust, and
the great deposits of the detritus of that faraway
time are piled up in the loess hills of Nebraska. Only
in China and Russia Is similar soil found, and 1n
China it has been cropped for more than 40 cen
tunes. It will last as long In Nebraska, and bears
more because It la better handled.
• • •
Only a limited amount of water power Is avail
able. from Nebraska'* shallow atreams. Mud in the
Missouri and sand In the Platte provide the obstacles
to development of either as a source of power. But
Nebraska has another resource that is latent, and
somo day will be used. Timber will grow in the
Many acres are now allowed to go unused that
might be put to growing tree*. Not In the sand
hills alone, where the possibilities of pine forestation
have been demonstrated, but along the Missouri and
other rivers and creeks. One does not need a great
expanse of open land to set up a profitable woodlot.
Just a few acre*, the banks of the creeks, the steep
sides of a ravine, places where only weeds and un
derbrush now grow. Trees planted there will serve
many purposes, and in time will return sure profits.
One of the indirect returns to be bad from for
ests will be the checking of the erosion of the lend
by rains. When the Missouri river passes Bismarck,
N. D., it is fairly clear water. At Omaha it carries
760 pounds of mud to 1,000 gallons of water in nor
mal stages. Every pound of that mud is from fertile
farms. Hundreds of thousands of acres of rich land
is the annual tribute paid to the Missouri’s devour
ing current. Proper planting of trees will save most
of this land.
Is it not about time we set about a conservation
plan that will mean something to those who will be
h(*re after we are all gone?
WOMAN’S SHARE IN POLITICS.
A debate has Ipeen set up, and an effort Is being
made to calibrate the effect, concerning woman's
advent into polities in America. At the outset we
think it wise to say that no definite opinion can yet
be arrived at. Women as such have not been so
much interested in American politics as they have
been in American homes. As a wife and mother the
American woman stands superior to her sisters any
where. In no other country has the woman been
given the place she has had in this land. And in no
other country has she made such a good job of man
aging the matters that are left to her control and
Charles Edward Russell, basing his conclusions
on the fact that not many women have aspired to
office, and fewer have been elected, says it is proven
that women will not vote for women. He is mis
taken in this, for the experience so far proves some
thing very different. Four years ago the feminist
group, attempting to seize power, sought to herd the
women of the country into a combination that would
dictate to the men. That movement failed, for
obvious reasons, and its failure la the only certain
thing so far demonstrated by experience at the polls.
Montana, Oklahoma, Illinois and California have
each elected women to congress. This in itself proves
nothing, although it does indicate not only a ca
pacity for politics, hut a responsive inclination on
the part of men. Locally, women have fdled many
offices throughout the different states, and generally
with credit. This, in itself, also proves netting. To
attempt to predicate the Whole case for or against
woman suffrage on the sporadic instances in which a
woman has sought or obtained public office is unfair.
Women are slowly acquiring the habit of voting.
If, as is alleged, they side with their husbands,
fathers, or brothers, such a result is not unnatural
nor unexpected. It exhibits a community of inter
est. It was not intended that politics should divide
homer, any more than that one or the other in the
home should dominate the political choice. Wo be
lieve, that were the truth known, the choice of the
home is generally the result of consultation and dis
cussion between the partners in the home.
American women always have exerted an influ
ence In politics, Just because they have always been

I'a**#**' scheme H»* been a»ilM*rl*ed My lha In

of Ian republic**! member*,
The president eeverely rriliriiri ibc renal* for
abdicating H* power* and surrendering il» aulbnrily
lo a private Individual, wllh evidenlly a private
grudge in **lt»fy, and be demand* lhat (he *enale
rail a halt lo aurh a debasement of government.
The president'* message to the aenate transmit*
a letter to him from Secretary Mellon in which Ihr
secretary advises that he Mas already supplied the
committee with all Information concerning Ihe in
come taxes levied against the so-called Mellon com
■panics, and in which he also state* that: "All con
structive purpose* of the committee have now been
The people of the United States, who In primary
after primary have endorsed President Coolidgc,
will also endorse his courageous message to the
senate. The president says:
"The constitutional and legiil rights of the senate
ought to he maintained at all limes. Also the same
must be said of the executive department. Rut
these rights ought not to be used as a suMlerfug"
to cover unwarranted Intrusldn. It Is Ihe duty of
tlie executive to resist rucIi intrusion and to bring
to the attention of the senate its serious conse
quences. That I shall do In this Instance.
“Under a procedure of tills kind, the constitu
tional guarantees again* unwarranted search and
seizure breaks down, the prohibition against what
amounts to a government charge of criminal actlpn
without the formal preaentinent of a grand Jury la
evaded, the rulea of evidence which have been
adopted for the protection of the Innocent are
Ignored, the department becomoa the victim of
vague, unformulnted and Indefinite chargee, and
Inatead of a government of law we have a govern
ment of lawleasnesa.
"Agnlnst the continuance of such a condition I
enter my solemn protests, and give notice that tn
my opinion the departments ought not to be re
qulred to participate In It. If It la to be continued,
if the government la to he thrown Into disorder by
It, the responsibility for It must rest on those who
are undertaking It. It Is time that we return to a
government under and In accordance with the usual
forms of the law of the land. The state of the union
requires the Immediate adoption of such a course.”
It Is Increasingly evident that ‘‘government under
and in accordance with the usual forms of the law of
ths land," however, does not suit the purpose of the
senatorial Inquisitors. They have gone mad with
their lust for the blood of cabinet officers.
Now that th# president has entered the lists, club
in hand, we will probably have a howl go up from
It la to be hoped that the issue thus squarely
drawn will be pushed to an Issue and that. Couzens’
personally hired man will be kicked out not only by
an irate president, but by an awakened senate. They
will he supported by an indignant public.
LESSON THE'WORLD MIGHT HEED.
"And a very great multitude apresd their gar
ments In the way; others cut down branches from
the trees and strawed them In the way.
“And the multitudes that went before, and that
followed, cried, saying. Hosanna to the Son of David:
Blessed Is he that cometh In the name of the Lord;
Hosanna In the highest.
"And when He was come Into Jerusalem, all the
city waa moved, saying, Who Is this?
"And th# multitude said. This Is Jesus, the
prophet of Nazareth of Galilee.”—St. Matthew,
That is why this is Palm Sunday. It com
memorates the triumphal entry into Jerusalem of
the Man who a few days later was to struggle along
the road to Calvary, bearing Hia own cross, until He
fainted beneath its weight, and Simon th# Cyrenoan
was called to carry it.
Nor can the reader help recalling that the crowds
that shouted “Hosanna in the highest!” on Sunday
shouted ‘‘Give us Barabbas!” on Friday. Such la the
ficklenesa of the mob.
All testimony in Holy Writ supports the belief
that Jesus knew He was near the end of His earthly
pilgrimage when He entered Jerusalem at the begin
ning of that Passover week. The hour draws near,
He warned the disciples, and gave them much in
struction, and advice, counseling them as to what
was to be done when He was no longer with them.
On Thursday night, when he found them In the up
stairs room, complaining that no servant was there
to wash their feet, and quarreling as to who should
do it, He wrapped a towel about His arm, and with
a basin of water performed the menial service. It
was His final and sublime lesson in humility to those
who had received so intimately His other teachings.
Palm Sunday deserves the importance the Chris
tian church gives it. The world needs a little more
of the spirit that was shown at the Last Supper.
_ _ t
Promise of a building boom, indicated by reports
from different parts of the country, discount the old
story shout presidential years upsetting business.
Perhaps it is the certainty of the outcome that really
encourages folks to go ahead.
Still the republicans are unable to do anything to
suit the democrats, who find great fault with the
primary election results. If they will only wait until
November we will give them something to think
about. They, “ain’t heard nothin’, yet.”
Senator Simmons whs not nearly so considerate
of the little taxpayer when he was chairman of the
senate finance committee. However, it makes a dif
ference which end of it you are handling.
Senator Borah will be chairman of the commit
tee to investigate the Wheeler indictment. This at
least insures a square deal for the Montanan.
Secretary of Labor Navis is trying to establish
the status of (Jrover Cleveland Bergdoll as an
Amorcan citizen. We would say not so good.
If Colonel l-e sen can soften the water by ex
pending $24,000, Jet him hop to it. He rouldn’t
gain morn women voles in any other way.
The total vote at the primary will he somewhere
up around 181),000, whirn still is less than f>0 per
cent, of the total for the state.
“What everybody says must be *o," therefore
business is getting better.

they are acquainted with him.”

lawyer, a doctor, a plumber or a contractor for the
same reason. '

they are getting TRAINED SKILL and are assured of the
right service at the right price.
