If It would be hard for the tiole-

have to come before the people asking

would they answer Questions pro

to know why they should have a vote

commissioners and attorney general
chosen for two years, and be denied
a vote for their United States senator,
whose duties are much, more import
ant and who will not be accountable
to them officially for six years? Ylow

they would voice the wishes of the
people or would put their votes on

CAUSES UF JDYEXILV CRIME.
An experienced neighborhood settle
ment worker, discussing the cause of
juvenile crime in one of the current
periodicals, while declaring that they
are numerous, intricate and complex
and not to be condensed into a single
formula, enumerates these as some of
the principal factors repeated with the
1. Lack of proper home restraint and
3. Habit of truancy.
S. Lack of proper outlet for normal
4. Social training it) disregard of law and
The discussion of these causes of ju
vealle crime apparently all lead back to

plays as compared with environment
is snown, we are tola, in tha fact mat
there Is unanimous consent among
those who have to do with the placing
out of children that if a child can be
established In a good home before he
is 10 years of age he almost invariably
acquires the characteristics of the peo-
pie among whom he lives.
Attention has been called to the
fact that the laws of the last few
years have been directed along the
lino of prevention of Juvenile crime
by restricting child labor. imDrovinn
housing and sanitary conditions, es-
tlhllshln nlav erounda and settin ud
3uvenlle courts. All of these efforts
ure. no doubt, well directed and fruit
ful of oodi but ln one dlrectlon they
seem to be lacking, namely, ln the re
inforcement of the sense of responsl
blllty ln the parents, whose influence is
conceded, after all, to be paramount.
There Is no question whatever but
that many homes that are unattrac
tive and repellant to the children, thus
encouraging them in the first steps to
ward vice and crime, could and would
be reorganized if the parents only knew
what to do and how to do it. Juvenile
courts and truant officers may redeem
some of the children that have gone
astray, but elToru for prevention to be

nAiLnnAD BriLDiyn l.v rfl irrsr.
The prediction made by K. H. Harrt-
man eighteen months ago mat me
country was about to enter upon an I
era of extraordinary railroad construe-
tlon is being more than verified. Con-
structlon, both in actual progress and
In contemplation, is especially notable
in the TransmlMouri region, where the
extensions of the Milwaukee to Puget
sound and the Moffett and Clarke lines
through Colorado and Utah westward
to the Pacific, and construction of ni-
merous short lines and feeders by all
the transcontinental systems In the
tier of states bordering the Missouri,
as well as throughout the northwest-
era mountain region, are going rapidly
Railroad construction Is invited and
almost compelled throughout the west
and northwest by extraordinary de-
velopment, which is universally of a
solid character. On the other hand,
the railroad companies already in this
territory are enabled by their enor-
mous surplus earnings and credit to
carry on construction campaigns to the light of the manifold benefits con
advantage. Universal financial condl- ferred by the department, no part of
tions, too, are such as to make feasl- the taxpayers' money is more un
ble any undertaking, whatever its grudgingly given than that which goes
But probably the most potent factor I
Is the competitive temptation among
railroad interests now concentrated in
comparatively few groups of vast
power and financial credit. The
agreements which fifteen or twenty
years ago long restrained building can-
not prevent these great rival systems
from reaching out to seize the rich
prizes which such unexampled devel-
opment presents now and for the fu-
ture. Occupation of a new district
by ono system thus means permanent
advantage, which presses all to en-
deavor to be first, while many of the
old settled portions nearer the Mis-
sourl river, long served by a single
line, are now producing ample tonnage
to invite Invasions by rivals.'
The strategic position of Omaha is
such that its commercial opportunities
will be steadily and enormously en-
hanced by such transportation expan-
slon and improvements throughout the the immense usefulness of the dapart
region with which Its future is linked, ment and to take a vital interest in its

man in the railroad world, and to

voting 1 their energies, as the facts
clearly show, is only fairly beginning
and is destined to make the next few
years memorable in the history of
western railroad construction.
Laud AXD food prices.
The statement and computations of
George E. Roberts, director of the
United States mint, so far as regards
articles of food are entitled to serious
attention because they show ground
for belief that the increase is not tern
porary, but permanent? The funda
mental point is that, whereas for de
cades following the civil war. bread,
meat and like necessaries were pro-
duced on cheap land and by methods a plan for raising the money neces
requlrlng but very small investment, sary to complete that structure and put
practically all the good, rich western

mand for subsistence grows with the for the credit of the city, if for noth

Prices of farm products and derlva-
tlve foods will, of course, fluctuate
from year to year, but the level of
such prices must continue to tend
higher, as it has so notably the last
decade. It cannot return to the low
point to which it was depressed when

The ruling and still rising prices of

braska are one of the Irreversible con
dltlons that control the cost of foods
produced on them. There is. indeed
a limit, but it has not yet been
reached and will not be until a point
has been reached at which extensive
competition on irrigated land, approx-
imately equivalent to the demand from

RUSSELL. SAdF'S W11 J
Various theories, some of the most
fanciful . character, have been formed
to explain why the late Russell Sage
devised his millions practically ln bulk
to his wife without specifying any
other purposes to which he wished
them to be devoted. The true reason
is so simple that many will hardly
credit It even when it la satisfactorily
set forth, as it has now been, namely,
to draw a will that would be legally
Invulnerable. The will, it appears,
was drawn by the late Almon Good
win, certainly one of the very ablest
lawyers in the United States, who was
the attorney who broke the will of
Samuel J. TUden. The latter, though
a lawyer of consummate skill, like
many another lawyer, failed in the at
tempt to specify in detail his desires
in the distribution of his estate with
out creating an invalid trust. It is no
conceded that Mr. Base succeeded ln
avoiding all such pitfalls by devising
the estate absolutely to his wife, and
that there Is no ground of attack save
eitner mat or mental incapacity or un-
due influence, neither of which stands
a ghost of a show to be sustained ln
his case if the will should be con -
Of course, such a disposition lm -
piles confidence. Mrs. Saga is lu fat t,
although not In legal form, the trns-
tee of th vast estate for the char
itable and educational purposes of Its
builder with which she must d ac
quainted or for such purposes of that
cnaracter as ne renea upon ner wiscjy
to provide for. The more the matter
is stuaiea 07 competent
more probable it appears that he took
the shortest and surest way to reach
It Is now quite conclusively estab-
lished that practically the whole es-
tate is thus to be devoted to benevo-
lent purposes, and that among Mr.
Sage, his wife and a few trusted
friends there had long been an under
standing to that effect. In pursuance
of which the will was drawn with
great skill and foresight as1 it stands.
THE AGRICULTURAL, DEPARTMENT.
The appropriation, of almost $10v
000,000 for the work of the Depart
ment of Agriculture for the ensuing
year marks a growth of that compara-
tlvely young department which must
be more rapid than ever under the
legislation of the last session of con-
gress, adding extensive duties in the
Inspection of meats and the quality
of foods, drinks and drugs. lJut in
to this division of the government
This large sum is apportioned
among the bureaus of animal Industry,
plant industry forestry, weather serv-
ice, breeding and feeding, seed investl
eation, roads, orchard and plant dls
eases, soils, chemistry, etc. The
farmers will be especially Interested in
the large amount this year devoted to
experiment station work, which has
been increased to almost $1,000,000
This work goes hand in hand with the
search the world over for grasses,
grains and roots which are particu
larly adapted to certain regions, es
pecially the dry area west of the
ninety-eighth meridian, and there Is
not a farmer worthy of the name in
the United States who is not being
benefited by it
It is only within the last few years
that the agricultural classes them
selves have fairly begun to appreciate
merely to original researches, import
ant as Buch results have been, but la-
elude also a potent means of publicity
of the work of the most progressive
farmers, of the state agricultural col
leges and stations and of what la be'
lng accomplished by scientific methods
in other countries. No other agency
has been more Important in the benefl
cent revolution wnicn is aaaing wun
such rapidity to agricultural wealth
and prosperity, and every western
farmer should put himself, as he easily
may, in close touch with this branch
of the national government
COMPLETISO THE AUDITORIUM.
The directors of the Auditorium are

From us you may as safely order by telephone, by t el graph or by
mall as ln person, and the chances are ten to one that our experts will
select a piano for you better than you could yourself, or than anybody
elce could select for you.
All we need to know is, how much you wish to Invest; whether
you want mahogany, walnut or oak; how you wish to pay, and we will
do the rest.
We have shipped pianos to the Pacific coast, Florida and other
Southern states, and the New England states and north to the Canadian
line, to people who gave us carte blanche to use our own Judgment, and
from every one we have had enthulsastlc letters of commendation.
