tHSSATISFACTIOS O.T ROTH Slt'F.S
It is not at all reiiiail.alile thnt in
Imth Japan and Ktissia there are people
who are dissatisfied with the pence set
tlement. It was to have been expected,
no pr-ace ever having 1hcii effected to
the satisfaction of everybody iu the
countries that were parties to the set
tlement. In the present case tt very
large portion of the people of Japan,
particularly the financial and commer
cial elements, felt that the demand for
an Indemnity twerlng the cost of the
war wn Justified and should have been
Insisted upon, even at the cost of con
tinuing the war indefinitely, llellevlng
that their armies would lime achieved
more victories and ultimately been able
to enforce the clulm for reimbursement,
they regard the abandonment of that
demand as an Inexcusable surrender;
There Is also dissatisfaction with the
division of Sakhalin, which as conquered
territory Japan bad nn unquestionable
right to. The mikado and his advisers
and the peace envoys have been sub
jected to some pretty sharp criticism
from the disgruntled element, which de
clares that the concessions made have
robbed of their Just reward the victories
on land and sea.
Kusslau dissatisfaction relates chiefly
to the cession of the southern half of
Sakhalin, the feeling lelug that this
was an unnecessary surrender of ter
ritory that Is humiliating to the nation.
Other objections to the terms of the
peace agreement are mode, one news
paper snyiug: "We must acknowledge
that the peace terms are most disad
vantageous. We cannot rejoice over
them. We have lost too much." Of
course the jingo element which wanted
the army to have another chance to try
the fortune of war, In the confident feel
ing that Hnssln would win In another
great battle, was not plensed with the
result of the conference and may even
now make an effort to put some obstacle
in the way of a ratification of the treaty.
There are far better reasons for the
Japanese than for the Russian dissatis
faction. While Japan obtains all for
which she went to war, still she gets
nothing that was not won by her mili
tary and naval superiority nt great cost
lu men mid money. Of course her na
tional existence is freed from menace
and made secure and this Is worth a
great deal. That fact ulone, it would
seem, ought to silence complaint on the
part of her people and make them con
tent with a peace that will enable them
to proceed nntriiinmeled with the Indus
trial and commercial development, re
couping for the rost of war by their
enterprise In wider fields of nctlvlty
than before. Moreover, In preferring
peace to money Japan has attained a
higher place In the esteem and admira
tion of the world and this is of very
great value. In this she achieved a
moral victory that Is most heartily com
mended by all mankind. It 1ms been
rightly characterized as the finest ex
ample of moderation and magnanimity
on the part of a victorious nation in all
history. This should be a cause of pride
to every citizen of the Island empire. As
to Russia she lost little that was right
fully and legitimately hers and dissatis
faction on the part of any of her people
with the result of the peuce conference
Is Utterly unreasonable. She lost In ti
cause that had no sympathy or support
from the enlightened and Impartial Judg
ment of mankind and she owes to Ja
pan's generosity and earnest desire for
peace avoidance of a greater penalty
than she has paid for her bad faith and
her Inordinate lust for aggrandizement.
The Russian people should enthusiastic
ally approve, the result of the peace
conference and recognize with gratitude
the muguanlmlty of Japan. There Is no
reason to believe that dissatisfaction
will long continue In either country or
that It will interfere with the consum
mation of peace.

The throng of returning tourists Is
again lesniiiig that more than half tli;
Joys of traveling consist In the pleasures
of home-coming. It has been snld thnt
no oril In the Kuglish language Is so
expressive of all that appeals to the
henrt as the word home, and to none
does It appeal more directly and with
greater force than to the vacation
voyager who has set his course back to
the point from which he started.
If a way-from-hoine Journeying and so
journing accomplishes one tiling more
effectively than another It Is to empha
size the attractions of home. Wherever
one may go and whatever one may see
abroad thnt Is lenutiful or picturesque
or satisfying he can yet on his return
find something at home that Is also leau
tlful or picturesque or satisfying, or nt
least serves to offset the shortcomings
as compared with other places, much as
they are to be admired.
So It is also with the home city. Noth
ing serves so well to make the city In
which we live show up so creditably and
give so much cause for honest pride as
the home-coming after an Inspection of
other cities; nothing gives such vivid
realization of the noteworthy achieve
ments that have leen accomplished per
haps with inadequate resources, solely
through Indomitable will and persistent
energy. Deficiencies are always visible,
to be sure, but to the home-coming
traveler they usually inspire to fresh de
termination to work for improvement
nnd Keif assurnnce that the task Is fully
within the range of practicability.
It does a person good to go away, if
only to come home again. It does a city
good to have Its Inhabitants go away oc
casionally, if only to appreclnte better
what advantages they constantly enjoy
without realizing how many others have
to 1 content with less.
FACTORS l. Bid CHOPS.
All figures of crops already harvested
and all estimates of the harvest yet to
be gathered foreshadow an unprece
dented yield of soil products for the
present year. While the importance
of temperature, rainfall and general
weather conditions are of nrime imnor
. - .
tance as agencies in bringing about this
result, there are still several factors to
be taken into account which do not
usually show on the face of the returns.
There Is no question but that the In
creasing output of field and farm and
the greater steadiness of successive
crops Is traceable lurgely to Improved
methods of agriculture, and these in
turn are to be ascribed to educational
forces which have come more fully Into
pluy lu recent years.
Farmers and stock raisers are getting
more out of (he soil now than formerly
Leeause they are going about it more in
telligently and more systematically.
The agricultural schools have a greut
deal to do with the teaching of scien
tific agriculture to the younger genera
tion of farmers who are gradually turn
ing their agricultural knowledge to prac
tical account. This instruction Is sup
plemented by the farmers' institutes,
the meetings of agricultural societies,
the great agricultural fairs and the trav
eling schools of demonstration that roll
around In special trains.
All the workers on the farm, however,
cannot come within the circle of these
educational movements, but they have
all beeu brought In touch with them by
the growth and Improvement of the
agricultural newspapers and periodicals.
The farm paper has Income the popu
larlzer of the results achieved at the ex
periment stations and the disseminator
in practical form of the new Ideas
worked out lu the agricultural schools
and in the universities. Week iu and
week otit the farm papers have been
teaching approved agricultural methods,
urging the introduction of modern ma
chinery, advocating systematic market
ing of farm products nnd pointing the
need of utilizing what was formerly
wnste material In a word, promoting
business methods that will make farm
ing a busiuess ruther than a mere occu
pation. -The good results of nil this agricul

Contrary to expectations and after hope
of the success of the negotiations had al
most been abandoned, the special com
mittee ot the board of regents In charge
of the matter succeeded yesterday morn
ing in closing a deal for the purchuse of
two city lots Immediately north of the uni
versity campus. Incidentally, the trans
action taved a fund of I2.70U in the hands
of the board, from lapsing, and was the
source of considerable satisfaction to per
sons at the university. The total price
said to have been paid for the property,
M.OOu, is considered somewhat high, but ex
cusable under the circumstances. Lincoln
If tills transaction were not mads In
the name of the State University would
It be excusable or Inexcusable T The ex
cuse offered by the regents for buying
land nt admittedly excessive price is
that unless the money were spent in this
way the appropriation would lapse back
Into the state treasury aud be lost to the
university. This, however, does not
necessarily follow. The money thus ex
travagantly expended has been raised
by taxation and the lapse of the ap
propriation Is not a loss, but merely a
transfer to other funds contributed by
the taxpayers for public purjoses. The
lapse of an appropriation would give a
good excuse to the university to ask
the next legislature to reapproprlate it.
whereas the squandering of any part of
the money will furnish an argument
against conceding further demands for
extra financial assistance.
Suppose, if we can, every state In
stitution Willi a surplus remaining in
Its appropriation nt the end of the time
for which It was made; suppose that
the officers In charge of these Institu
tions rather than turn back any of the
money at their disposal should nt the

in excess of the current quotations.

as excusable or inexcusable?

A Portsmouth dispatch to an eastern
paper states that Huron Rosen, Russian
ambassador to this country and one of
the peace envoys, made the statement
after the conference had reached an
agreement that It is the Intention of
Russia to cultivate the closest. relations
with Japan, iu the hope of eventually
taking the place of Kngland In a Japa
nese combination. It appears that
among oltlcials nt Washington the view
Is entertained that Russia may in the
near future seek an alliance with Japan,
in order to get an outlet for her com
merce lu (eastern Asia.
It is not altogether improhnble thnt
Russia looks forward to a commercial
treaty with Japan nnd she may even
hope for an alliance, but the suggestion
that she may take the place of Great
Itrltain lu a Japanese combination has
not even plausibility. The mutual in
terests of Rrttaln and Japan In the far
east have naturally drawn those nations
together and the alliance they have
formed will undoubtedly be a lasting
one, for each feels it to be most essential
to their interests. Obviously Japan
would have nothing to gain by an al
liance with Russlu, whose navy has been
destroyed, and besides she has every
reason to still distrust Russia, which has
never acted fairly toward her. Friendly
relations between the two powers will
undoubtedly be established, but it Is
safe to say they will not become allies.
The beauties of weekly Journalism
that have brought about the publleatlou

31, sadly declares that "whether there

American delegates to the Interparlia

behalf of arbitration. Without disparag

American delegates might with much

Birthplace of Abraham Lincoln Be
comes a Speculative Venture.
Philadelphia North American.
One reads with a shock that the birth
place of Abraham Lincoln has been put up
at public auction and knocked down for , the
sum of $3,600. There are 110 acres in the
farm on which s'tands the cabin where
the great war president entered the world,
so not much of the price was paid on ac
count of sentiment.
Moreover, the land Is worthless, and the
13,600 represents veneration for patriotic
deeds or a belief In the commercial, value
of such veneration In other people the fact
remains that the people of the United
States, who should be the owners and
preservers of this historic spot in Ken
tucky, did not pay a cent of it, and have
no share tn the title.
The Ingratitude of 'republic has grown
Into a proverb. Perhaps there are too many
men still alive In America who realize
what the great brain, the unswerving In
tegrity of purpose and the big, warm
heart of Abraham Lincoln meant to this
country In its day of supremest peril to
permit It to be said that the country Is
ungrateful to him.

glory that thtre Is a time which yields to

Curiously enough, these flowers, so un

relatives, for they both belong to the ordur
of compoaltae, "that wonderful order," we
might have said, which supplies about a
tenth of the flowers of the world. Flower
ing, as they do, at the same season of the
5 ear, and growing, as they do, very fre
quently side by side, goldenrod and daisies
form one of the most striking and distinc
tive features of the North American land
scape. The dulslea, It Is true, are not the
flowers which have Inspired the poets for

you can often gather a nosegay of them
at Christmas time in the she.tvred nooks

Only the Initiated know how beautiful

r Kansas City Star: The failure of Bishop
Potter's subway tavern wa to have been
expected. It would be unite n logical to
look to the dramshop for the propagation
of Christianity as to exrect the church to
be successful In tho saloon business.
Washington Post: Rev. Dr. C. Campbell
Morgan of Ixmdnn severely criticise the
American church as a social rather than a
spiritual organization. We will get even,
however, by soon hearing what Rev. Dr.
Parkhurst thinks of the London churches.
Cleveland Plain Dealer: Those progres
sive persons who were o much elaled over
the statement that the Methodist Episcopal
church hud eliminated the word "obey"
from Its marriage service are Informed by
Zlon's Herald that the elimination took
place as far back as 1S64.
New York Telegram: The idle rich have
found an exciting pastime If Evangelist
Morgan has the thing Rhuped up right. He
speaks of "dilettante church members fool
ing with heaven and frlvollng with hell."
Neither Tom Lawson nor Wllllum Jennings
Bryan ever did better than that.
Springfield Republican: Protestantism
was first carried to Manhattan Island by
the early Dutch, but it is now In a position
where It can scarcely be called the popular
religious ' faith of the greatest American
city. Without taking Catholicism Into ac
count, lYotestanlsm Is no stronger In New
York today than Judaism, whose adherents
number some 600,000. This is a striking
development, utterly unexpected a genera
tion ago. If the Jewish Immigration con
tinues at the present rate New York may
even cease to be a Christian city, although
it will not be a less moral one.

One melancholy feature of the close of

The explosion of a hot huckleberry pie

Seamen who are u mazed at the absence

Motor car 4-11-14 of the South Omaha
line, hitherto regarded as a hoodoo, hua
been thoroughly exurclsed. For months
the management wondered why no com-

Jut this parliculur car. No matter how I
j often the crew was changed, nary a kick j
was filed by patrons. Crews of all other
cars received an occasional roast, making I
I the exception notable. The trouble was '
finally lucated in the framed notice to 1
patrons, revised to read: "Passengers are j
requested to notify the company of any
instances of civility or courteous treatment

The revised card was replaced by the

DEATH OF THE FLOWERS.
William Cullen Bryant.
The melancholy days have come.
The saddest of the year,
Of wailing winds, and naked woods,
And meadows brown and sere
Heaped In the hollows of tho grove.
The autumn leaves He dead:
They rustle to the eddying g.ist.
And to the rabbit's tread;
The robin and the wren nr flown.
And from the shrubs the iay.
And from the wood-top call the crow
Through all the gloomy day.
Where are the flowers, the fair younix
flower, that lately sprang and strwxl
In brighter light and softer airs, a beau
Alas! they all are In their graves, the
gentle rare of flowers
Are lying In their lowly beds, with the fair
and good of ours.
The rain ls falling where they lie, but the
cold November rain
Calls not from out the gloomy, earth the
lovely ones again.
The wind-flower and the violet, they per
ished long ago,
And the brier-rose and the orchis died amid
the summer glow;
But on the hill the goldenrod, and the aster
In the wood.
And the yellow sunflower by the brook In
autumn beauty stood;
Till fell the frost from the clear cold
heaven, s fall the plague on men.
And the brightness of their smile was mnn
from upland, glade and glen.
And now. when comes the calm mild day,
as still such days will come,
To call the aijulrrel and the bee from out
their winter home;
When the sound of dropping nuts Is heard,
though all the trees are still.
And twinkle In the smoky light the waters
of the rill.
The south wind searches for the flowers
whose fragrance late he bore,
And sigh to And them In the wood and by
the stream no more.
And then I think of one who in her youth
ful beauty died.
The fair meek blossom that grew up and
faded by my side.
In the cold moist earth we laid her, when
the forests cast the leaf.
And we went that one so lovely should
have a life so brief;
Tet not unmeet It was that one, like that
young friend of ours.
Bo gentle and so beautiful should perish
with the flowers.
We furnish everything
for housekeeping and
carry the largest stock
in Omaha. Let us fig
ure with you.
