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 state. 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 direction. 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 lattMFi Hi |kt HMi •> 4 M mImMuimI ] Ikil IH el m 1**1 N Ml *wl I N«t» Ip* m#4 Me MftmH B nwn H*iM Me ; My #**fM#y #« «• ih* immi'i e#*rt I* j •Mta>ui tHre I* H Ht #*»ty )e* H tee eHiHi IH |4mi Mai f|)M *f Ha IH **ly IMHtf IH< | a* far Ma* fatten H IM# atf t* iMa .IrtiWi«i« a#arl •f ih featiniM* la #n»* tea agate** *** S» *«•>M | #,er a41 eareeed Hi A**#fva, i not iiM.f umi in ihi n ut 1 Me paittMiee af P?**td**'l ( oatMlge, aarefy lr*trf My paHina* |*veMtg»t*#*a |M#| H<* taaatad ta IH aIMa Mure* af i* HMllH, e* (ietenaa iftM iM dl*,h*tf*il fedetel employes, ea< M af »M«*e mmy ported late* Mae Me*a ajMrt IMa* Ma yre4e<esaat. j Mat ft**tty glee* way, IM* y»IM upon w Mi, M (Me piiMidenl Hat I Mined Ma* Mee* IMa arrange me *1 My hitalM * nMtena la Mira and pay f*f **l *f Ml* «** i*iHt*n* a apaetal "prnsecMlitr'* 1* dale* 1*1* lne«M*e la* eoBeetl***. I'a**#**' scheme H»* been a»ilM*rl*ed My lha In vetrtigallug committee *f Ihe *nn*l* aver the pmle*l 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 abandoned." 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 the self-righteous. 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, xl, 8-11. 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.

Mis* Vivian Simpson, who. barring sex, might ha called tha John Ifarnp dan of Maryland, haa made good her resistance to tyrannical government In tha university of that state.

The learned opinion of Judge Heutaler exhibits symptoms of a con sulfation with Mrs. Heulaler. Mias SImpaon is described by some of the other girls as a man-hater; but^er picture shows her to be chic and pretty, and evidently ehe does not lack spirit.

Scouts found an excellent example at Sara nao I-eke, N. V.. and promptly algnad him to a contract. The new actor had a different point of view of the engagement than the director, and In new pride he thought that he would taka on the appearance of tha city man. Ho, he had hie hair bobbed, hla whlakera ahaved off. and hla face almved and bought ready made, ahowy apparel. When the character appeared at the etudln looking like a dlfterenl per. eon, the chief of perannnel gava him due notice of discharge. He had ceased to he an actor before he ap peared in a picture.

The attractiveness of the cl*y would be greatly enhanced If It controlled and waa developing not only the for est areas mentioned, but also the wooded canyons already within the city limits. A forest can be used for recreation while serving the utilitarian purpose* of * regular forest, and it would he hut a short time before Omaha would he known throughout the land for It* beautiful forest and for its forestght efine** In planning an unique revenue producer. Not only would the ordi nary wood products he grown, but black walnut, hickory and other nut trees woulld make an additional In come. The forest, too, would protect wild game, and when properly stocked with deer anil other animals and birds, would be doubly attractive. The surplus game would furnish additional revenue, just a* the European forests do. Experience In the United States prove* that wilt game does thrive even In our thickly populated regions. Ten years ago Pennsylvania waa prac tically shot out, but under a wipe protective policy, Including the crea tion of more than 60 game refuges, game has Increased remarkably, and the harvest la furs, meat and trophies last year Is estimated at $7,500,000. More than 6,000 head of deer and BOO hears were killed during the hunting season. tVhst 1* good for Omaha la good for the rest of Nebraska. Not only will a forest for the city prove a good Investment, but the good work should bo extended over the state. There Is much waste land along th* streams, especially the Platte and Missouri, that Is of no value except to produce timber.
