Today all that remains earthly of
Edward Rosewater, founder and for
thirty-five years the. active spirit of
The Bee, will be consigned to earth. .
His was a peaceful ending of a
strenuous and sturdy life. Through
out Wis whole career his resistless en
ergy knew no slack nor brake. He
was busy with the work of the world
to the Very moment he was called.
' The keynote of Edward Rosewater'i
career Is devotion to public duty. In
his definition, the editor of a great
newspaper Is a man who consecrates
himself unreservedly to the champion
ship of the people's rights. He tried
to live up to the fullest measure of
It was always the great end to be
achieved that he kept constantly In
view. Personal discomfort and finan
cial sacrifice were disregarded when
once his Judgment told him he was
enlisted In a righteous cause. Con
trary to what many have been led by
his political antagonists to believe, he
rose above personal likes and dislikes
in his one aim to discharge his duty
fearlessly to the public. He would
fight today shoulder to shoulder with
the bitter enemy of yesterday, and no
claim of the friend of today could In
duce Edward Rosewater to shield him
tomorrow from the Just penalty of
faithlessness to a public trust.
So also In his own ambitions, they
were ever subordinated to his idea of
the puMJc welfare. He had repeatedly
declared that he Would want no offi
cial honor unless conferred on him by
the people themselves, nor would he
consent to take any position within the
gift of his fellow citizens unless satis
fied, that he could render them the
most efficient service. , , .
On his return from Rome only two
months ago Mr. Rosewater empha
sized this in speaking to his news
paper : family,' who had gathered to
gether to greet him, telling them that
while he appreciated their good will
and cordial expression, he would not
want any of them to support him for
senator because of his employment or
unless he conscientiously felt that he
was the proper person. Again, in an
address a few days later to the loyal
friends who made up his delegation,
"We have had so many fierce con
"tests in years - gone by, covering a
"third of a century, so much had been
"done .to misrepresent my views and
"misquote mo and misrepresent every-
"thing that I did or attempted to do,
"that It was a great treat for me to
"read the almost ' unanmlous com
"mondation my candidacy received.
"So far as t am concerned, ' I have
"always wanted to know how it will
"be when I am gone. I left my boys
"in charge ot the establishment to see
"whether they could conduct the paper
"that I had founded as well, or fairly
"as well, to the satisfaction ot the
"publio. , I felt that the labor ot a
"lifetime should not be lost I also
"had wondered what might be said
"when I am gone by people who have
"known me, and what has been said
"by the state press I appreciate more
"than I would if I had the commission
"of senator right here on this table,
"because the senatorshtp will neither
"raise me In my stature nor in the
"estimation of the people after all. In
"fact, it may have the reverse effect,
"for no public man can possibly sat
"isfy everybody any more than can an
"editor." . .
Above all. Edward Rosewater hated
hypocrisy, shams and frauds and
Idealised honesty and integrity. Every
fiber ot his being revolted against
treachery, Ingratitude and the betrayal
of personal or publio trust. Nothing
could tempt him to recede from a line
of duty once mapped out. Neither
the glamor ot office nor the glitter of
gold could swerve him from the right

POSSIBILITIES Or VIltATVBKD
The Inquiry now being made into
the possibilities of denatured alcohol
opens an ever-widening field of useful
ness for this product The early ad
vocates of the adoption of the law re
moving the revenue tax from alcohol
under certain conditions based their
arguments on its possible use in a lim
ited number of arts. It was con
tended that alcohol was necessary In
the preparation of certain articles re
quired in the manufacture of a lim
ited number of lines ot goods. Among
other things it was prominently put
forth that the Germans had outrun
the Americans In the manufacture of
dyes solely by reason of the fact that
the alcohol required in the processes
could be obtained in Germany so much
cheaper than was possible in the
United States under the Internal rev
enue laws. This Is but one of the
several points featured by the advo
cates of the denatured alcohol law.
The introduction of the Internal
combustion engine as a factor in the
Industrial life ot the country brought
even more prominently to the fore
the necessity for a cheaper and safer
form of fuel than was furnished by
petroleum or petroleum products. This
need is supplied by denatured alcohol.
Actual experience in European coun
tries, where petroleum and gasoline are
not easily had. and where alcohol Is
plentiful and cheap, has proven the
utility of alcohol as a power producer.
The fact that its combustion is more
nearly perfect than that of either gas
oline or vaporized petroleum Is a
strong point In Its support, while the
further fact that It produces power
cheaper is perhaps the most potent
argument that can be used in its be
Such experiments as have been
made In this country with alcohol as
a power have not as yet been carried
to a satisfactory conclusion. Some in
vestigators have reported that more
alcohol tnan gasoline was consumed
to produce a given amount of energy,
while thers have reached conclusions
directly the reverse. Conditions un
der which these tests have been made
have varied so greatly that the re
sults can hardly be accepted as defi
nite and reliable. However, It has been
demonstrated that under proper con
ditions alcohol Is in every way satis
factory as a fuel for the internal com
Other investigators have turned
their attention in the direction of dis
covery and are rapidly widening the
circle of usefulness to which alcohol
Is adapted. One of the most recent
announcements refers to its use as a
light producer. It has been demon
strated that alcohol produces, when
burned In a mantel, a light equal to
that of the best gas and under condi
tions far more secure than are possi
ble with gasoline or any of the other
liquids that are vaporized for light
ing purposes. Still further experi
ments are being made looking to the
end of demonstrating the possibility
of using alcohol on a practical scale
for heating and cooking.
It (ls not improbable that within a
reasonably short space of time these
processes will have been developed to
that point where the farmer of Ne
braska and other states similarly sit
uated can manufacture from his own
grain each year a sufficient quantity
of alcohol to furnish htm not only
the power needed to drive his ma
chinery and do all the work necessary
to the cultivation of his land and the
harvesting of his crops, but also to
light and beat his house during the
entire year and to provide his good
wife with an economical, clean and
perfectly safe fuel for the kitchen.
THK COW ADD TUB BBS.
While statisticians never tire of
computing the great sources ot wealth
such as mineral production, wheat,
corn, cotton and other so-called staple
products the other sources of wealth
are most generally overlooked. Among
the greatest of these In a state like
Nebraska can be enumerated the cow
and the hen, by-products, as it were,
ot the farm. Just what the actual
value of the yearly product of these
amounts to. would be difficult. If not
impossible, to calculate or even esti
mate, but statistics recently compiled
by the state labor bureau are an indi
cation which will prove an eyeopener
to the majority of people. From the
returns of the railroads It Is shown
that there were 12,623,297 pounds of
butter, 18,021,368 dozens of ejgs, 11,
331,368 pounds of live poultry and
3,130,799 pounds of dressed poultry
shipped out of the state during the
year ending June 30, 1903. These
statistics are undoubtedly under the
correct amount, as Douglas county ts
eliminated on. account ot the Impossi
bility of eliminating the trans-shipments,
and fall to take into account
omissions and other modes ot trans
portation than the railroads. They
are sufficiently accurate, however, to
furnish a basis for an Interesting com
putation. At a most conservative estimate of
the farm value of thase products they
brought into the state during that
year at least 34.600,000, and of this
the despised hen is responsible for
more than halt. In addition to the
Income from the surplus product the
more than 1,000,000 people in the
state have been amply supplied. What
this amounts to the person who has
never given this great source ot wealth
a thought can gain an idea by asking
the housewife what the weekly ex
pense bill for butter, eggs and pool
try amounts to and uuiUnlylng this
by 300,000, the approximate number
of families in the state, as the weekly
bill for these items. The resultant
figures are certainly startling.
The hen and the cow ot Nebraska
are responsible yearly for a greater
wealth production than either the
gold or silver mines of any state in
the union. The peaceful cow has
chewed her cud and the friendly hen
has cackled along for years doing this
very same thing and never made any
loud and boisterous clamor at the
halls of the national congress for en
couragement In the shspe ot free
coinage of butter and eggs and torn
the country upside down with the
noise of the resultant strife. When
you are boosting for Nebraska and
telling about the great crops of corn
and wheat Just drop in a friendly
word for th cow and the hen, the
unobtrusive workers who never tall
you and help tide over the years when
the crops are not so good.
LIABILITY OF DIRECTORS.
The failure of the trust company in
Philadelphia, carrying with it not only
the Investment of the stockholders, but
the savings of thousands of others,
emphasizes anew one of the defects,
not in the organization, but In the
operation . of too many of the banks
and trust companies In which the con
fiding public places Its cash for safe
keeping. Scarcely an institution of
the kind falls through the rascality or
poor Judgment of the active officials,
but It develops that had the directors
conscientiously attended to the duties
which the scheme of their organization
contemplated the peculations which
brought about the failure could not
have occurred. In the case In point
It appears the directors had not held a
meeting for almost three years, and
when they asked the clearing house
for assistance these directors were un
able to give any Information which
would indicate to the assembled finan
ciers whether they would, by extend
ing aid, be tiding over an emergency
or pouring still other millions down
the sinkhole through which the de
positors' and stockholders' millions
had previously disappeared.
It is strange that men who have
earned the reputation of being careful
and shrewd business men will Invest
their money in the stock of such con
cerns and then sit idly by, permitting
the opportunity to dishonest officials
to dissipate their cash. That they
will Is evidenced by practically every
failure of the kind. That they lose
their own money Is of little or no mo
ment to the public, and In the case ot
institutions not public depositories
they alone suffer for their carelessness
or Indifference. In the case of banks
and similar institutions, however, such
Inaction Is morally if not legally crim
Almost invariably these directors
are men chosen for the very reason
that their names will be an open
sesame to public confidence, and when
they have been elected are content to
draw their dividends from profits real
ized on the deposits of people who
have been lured by the glamor of a
long list of prominent business men
Into placing their money in the com
pany's keeping. When the crash
comes these honorable directors as a
rule escape their financial liability as
shiftily as they have previously es
caped the duties of the office which
they have held, but not filled.
The prison door should as certainly
close behind officials whose careless
ness permits such peculations as upon
the actual thief. It is poor consolation
to have the man whose carelessness
has broken your bones or lasccrated
ycir flesh present the comforting as
surance that "I didn't mean to do it."
It brings no bread to the old and In
firm who have seen their life savings
swept away by the peculations of a
bank president or cashier to have the
negligent director advance the assur
ance that he didn't know they were
being robbed, or he would have pre
vented It They are chosen to know
these things and should know them,
or, rather, so attend to their duties
that rascality on such a grand scale
would be an Impossibility. The plea
they, have not the time to devote to
such duties will not suffice. No man
has a right to assume duties or re
sponsibilities which he does not intend
to fulfill. It the moral sense ot the
obligation will not reach such men
and prompt them to do their duty, the
law should lay upon them a burden
as will spur their activities. The dis
honest official would be none the less
prompted to misuse funds to which he
had no right, for there would be, as
now, the incentive to personal gain to
set against the chances of detection.
To the director who had no such op
portunity or incentive of gain, but the
same penalties' to face, It would be a
corrective of laziness and indifference.
Mr. George Kennan contributes to
the current number of The Outlook a
most earnestly written article regard
ing the present conditions in Russia.
Mr. Kennan is, probably, above all
Americans qualified to write know
ingly of the political situation In tho
czar's dominion. The picture he
draws is not one that Inspires much
hope tor the Russian people in their
present effort for. betterment of con
ditions. It must be borne in mind al
ways, however, that we are persist
ently comparing Russian with Amer
ican. The difference In the habit ot
mind of the people of the two coun
tries is rarely taken into considera
tion, and what impresses the Amer
ican as a most deplorable state ot af
fairs Is too often accepted la Russia
as a mere matter ot coarse. Some
comfort may be found la the fact
that the Russian mind la being slowly
brought ap to that point where It can
appreciate th terrible state ot affairs
that now exists nsdsr th czar's gov
ernment In this lies the only pros
pect of any cessation ot the double
reign of terror that now darkens the
outlook in Russia.
