bassador Hon. James Brycc, who leaves
ths Important post of chief secretary for
Ireland to come to us. His book, "The
American Commonwealth," published a few
years ago In two volumes, Is the best work
en the makeup and character of our re
public that has come from any pen, either
American or foreign. He is better fitted'
than any Englishman to represent Oreat
Britain to the United States, and the fact
that he la a son of County Antrim, Ireland,
adds Interest to his coming to us. I have
just received a clipping from a paper pub

In an article on "Mr. Bryce's Sturdy
Rebel Ancestor" the Tribune says: "Other
things being equal," says Oliver Wendell
Holmes. "I prefer a man of family." And
the term "family" is not used in Its ordi
nary sense. That Is to say, the genial doc
tor does not men by "a man of family"
a person who happens to be connected with
the aristocracy of birth. He means rather
a man who Is connected with the arletoc-
Tacy of merit. From that point of view our
new ambassador must be said to be very
"highly connected," Indeed. He comes of
a very remarkable stock. But we need go
no further back than his paternal grand
father, one Rev. James Bryce, a Presby
terian minister In County Antrim, Ireland.
This gentleman was born in Scotland and
was educated for the ministry In Scotland.
But he was commissioned to carry on his
ministry In the Province of Ulster

OMAHA. Jan. 11 To the Editor of The
Bee: In the dismal and discouraging years
of the early white occupation of this part
of the. Transmisscurl country I said In The
Omaha Dally Herald this: "Nebraska Is
an agricultural state or It Is nothing." Be
hold the verdict of forty years upon that
A few days ago The Bee exulted In the
discovery of winter wheat In our state as
our proven alternative crop In seasons of
failure of the corn crop, and boasted that
the old theory that the protection of snow
had been shown to be an error. But The
Bee forgot to tell the reason why It was
not an error .until the press drill method
of sowing wheat made the enrth play the
part of snow by protecting the grain from
winds and cold. That great railroad cap
tain, General George W. Holdrege. Is the
man who discovered winter wheat for Ne
braska by experiment along the Burlington
lines more than ten years ago. It was the
next thing to the greatest bugle-note for
Nebraska as an agricultural state that was
ever sounded. I refer to that ringing call
J of Mr. C. 8. Harrison, president of the Ne-
brnska Park nna forestry aesocianon, wmcn
reverberated through the columns of The
Bee, calling upon the people of the state
to come forward and lay down their money
to redeem one-fourth of its sterile area,
which Is now a sandy waste, by covering It
with pine trees. It comes to my own eager
ears as a trumpet-call upon the people of
the state to rise as one man to their oppor
tunity to cover the waste places with valu
able trees, at no matter what reasonable
cost. I make no attempt to do Mr. Harri
son the Injustice of summarising his fine
appeal for systematic and continuous plant
ing of the valuable pines over large and
small districts, which would return thou
sands for centuries In actual wealth, with
porks for 'decoration. I ask everybody to
procure the letter to The Bee and, read
every word of it, and also the press of the
state to give It Immediate and sustained at
tention. Nothing In our larger future In
terests, to my own mind, better deserves It.
The legislators now sitting In the capltol
of this opulent and growing commonwealth
should raise a Joint committee of proper
numbers and Its best character, and call
Mr. Harrison before It for a careful hear
ing on this great question, that steps may
be taken for a progressive forward move
ment' for tree planting on broad plans by
state aid. Trees are not merely rich pro
ducts for commercial consumption and do
mestic use for the farm and the home.
They protect both farm and home by
chastening the storms; they Impart heat to
soften the severity of the winter; they pre
serve moisture and Increase the rainfall,
and adorn the landscape with sylvan
beauty. GEORGE L. MILLER.

OMAHA. Jan. 11. To the Editor of The
Bee: Your paper of last Thursday evening
states that a dinner will be given by the
finance committee of the Toung Women's
Christian association next Monday evening
to business men and their wives for the
purpose of raising funds, and that twenty
four business men will be asked to be
responsible for raising $500 each.
Permit me to state that the Invitations
were not Issued by the finance committee,
but by the board of directors of the Toung
Women's Christian association to friends
of .the cause, and not to business men and
their wives only. That the purpose Is not
to raise funds, but as stated In the In
vitation, to exhibit plans of the new build
ing and Interesting views of buildings and
work of other associations by . means of
the atereoptlcon; and to show what la being
done with the money entrusted to the as
sociation by the many members and to
ask tor advice In planning the needs of the
future. The board has not thought what
ever of asking subscriptions on this occa
sion.' Will you be kind enough to give
this correction publicity In your Saturday's

AFFAIRS AT SOUTH DllHA
CciTerti to Annexation Continue
Deoltre Tbeir FotitUn.
M'MILLAN IS AMONG THE LATEST
Gives Rom Cogrent Reasons Why lie
Favors Becoming Part of Metro
olltan City Several Injured
by Palls on Sleet.
Among the latest to give public expres
sion to the sentiment of annexation In
South Omaha Is John McMillan, one of
the best known cltisens of the city. He
once represented the Interests of this ec
tlon In the legislature. He has at all times
taken a deep Interest In public affairs and
makes dally visits to the city offices to
keep posted on municipal affairs. He la
usually very conservative In his expres
sions, but Inst Thursday night at the meet
ing of the Highland Park Improvement
club he took occasion to express his beliefs
in no uncertain terms.
In his opinion, the greatest reason for
the union Is the fact that the city expends
for running expenses here annually amount
to the sum of $225,000, and not a dollar of
this Is part of the public improvements
so much needed. All these must come from
the sale of bonds, which have plunged the
City In debt $1,500,000. If the $260,000 could
be used sa It should be In public improve
ments Instead of for the needless and
cumbersome separate city government,
South Omaha would enjoy many more Im
provements than It has today. Another
reason Is the fact that whenever any public
Improvement Is voted or talked of the
"public spirited" cltisens are on the look
out, not to assist In the movement, but to
force up the price of realty, as In the case
of the city hall site, or the price of ma
terials to the amount of (60,000 in the
sjwer . propositions, or to sell the city a
park at Illegitimate profit. Then there Is
the Incompetency of city governments to
arrnnge and perfect contracts which will I
stand, as In the recent Missouri avenue
paving case. ' From the present outlook
and Judging from the former administra
tions this kind of bungling of affairs,
which Is the charitable term, must still
continue. Mr. McMillan put the questions
straight on every point in the city govern
ment which has been In dispute in the
laat year. He made the assertion since the
meeting that except for the firm stand of
the present city clerk the city would today I
be tottering along the brink or bankruptcy, i
the victim of every scheming politician.
Time and again the clerk has been-the only
bar to deals, simply because he refused to
draw questionable warrants This attitude
baa no doubt been a bar to many schemes.
Something; More About Teachers.
Now the minority members of the Board I
of Education come forward with a state-1
ment In answer to the explanation offered
by Jay Laverty in yesterday's papers, re-
ferrlng to recent charges to the effect that
the board had hired an excessive number
of teachers, and they declare that no
charges have been made by the board, nor
by the minority of It, nut they wish to
submit the report of the uperlntendent,
which Is as follows:
An examination of the official reports of
the principals filed In the superintendent's
office shows that the school year 1904-1805
began with 123 teachers and ended with 124.
The school year 1006-1U06 began with 129
teachers and ended with 134. The superin
tendent then called the attention of the
board to the fact that he had asked for
only 135 teachers to begin the school year
191.16-1907, stating that others could be added
as needed. As the third month had al
ready closed he made the further compara
tive statement based on the principals' re
ports for the third months this year and
last. After submitting a . paper showing
the number of pupils in every grade and
class In th city, he called attention to
the following: The excess of enrollment
for the third month this year over the
same month last year is lot pupils. Dur
ing the third month last year there were
133 teachers. During the third month this
year there were 14 tea c tier si
An affidavit has been filed, sworn to by
an examiner to assure the correctness of
the report. Then the minority members
charge that Mr. Laverty has compelled the
principals, "at great lnconyenlence," to
sign the statement which appeared yester
day, and that he has practically taken
front the city superintendent all power In
the administration of the schools.

Undlmmed by time, but growing better
with the passing years, "She Stoops to
Conquer" charms with Its simplicity as
few of Ita Juniors can. It may lack in
polish, and It may be devoid of subtlety,
but it has the supremest merit of humanity.
It Is an intimate picture of English home
life at the time, exaggerated, but not
enough to throw It out of perspective, and
preserving certain of the mannerisms of
a bygone day, but -withal depending on the
ever new and never falling willingness of
people to laugh at others when they are
unwittingly placed In embarrassment or
made to appear ridiculous. Oliver Gold
smith' humor was of that healthy, robust
sort that amuses without vexing, and en
dures because it does not delve deeper than
the surface. The good doctor knew what
he was prescribing when he took his pen
in hand to give us this story of how Tony
Lumpkin got even with his father-in-law.
Th company which presented this classlo
at the Boyd last night Is one of the most
notable evei assembled to enact Its roles.
The pleasure afforded by the intelligent
exposition of the Idea is such as can only
be understood by thono who faced the sleet
and snow to reach the theater. In addition
to the amusement provided by the comedy,
an attraction was offered In the person ot
Mian Ellis Jeffreys, the Englishwoman of
whom so much has been written and who
was seen for the first time In Omaha,
playing the part of Kate Hardcastle. An
opinion as to her true ability can hardly
be based on the presentation ot a country
girl, blessed with rather more of common
sense than those about lier, and possessed
ot a sound fund of humor. Miss Jeffreys
give charming life to the role, and if
It Is to be taken as a measure of her
work in general, deserves all that has been
said of her. It l enough to make one wish,
though, for a glimpse of her in a part
that makes a more serious demand on her
Mr. Crane gives to Hardcastle th care
ful and painstaking attention he Invariably
bestows on any of his undertakings. It
Is an unctuous rendition of a part that
has been approached with loving care and
reverential attitude (Mr. Crane will very
likely balk at this) by a long line of
comedians, and always found to be worthy
their best efforts. The untold story of
Grouse in the gun room may yet burst
forth from the lips of a Hardcastle, but
Its telling can hardly be more effective
than Mr.- Crane's appreciative recollection
of how It has again and again convulsed
Dlggory and hi associates. From first to
last, Hardcastle is a fine old figure of a
man, and Mr. Crane makes him so.

kin with gusto and seems to enjoy the part
as much as does the audience, which ought
to be praise enough. Fannie Addison Pitt
is a real delight as Mrs. Hardcastle, and
Miss Dale, Mr. Hale and Mr. Sleath ars
well fitted in their parts. The performance
was most enjoyable. .
The audience present last evening was
far from large, but It was appreciative to
the extent of requiring curtain calls as the
comedy progressed. "She Stoops to Con
quer" will be presented at a matinee this
afternoon and again this evening.
OLD GUN WILL NOT GO OFF
Frightens One Barsrlar, bnt Other
Laughs When It 1 Snapped
Two burglars were detected early Satur
day morning In the act of robbing the sa
loon of H. C. Harm, 100J Vinton street, and
succeeded In making their escape with
about $4 from the cash register. The pro
prietor of the saloon, who lives on the
socond floor of the building, was aroused
by the noise of someone breaking a win
dow In the saloon and proceeded to make
an Investigation, with the assistance -of a
revolver that had not been flred for a cen
tury. Mr. Harm went to the front of the
saloon and saw a man standing Inside
tampering with the cash register. He
pointed his revolver , at him and the-bur-.
glar Jumped behind the bar. Mr. Harm
then went to the rear of the saloon and
was startled to find" another man In wait
ing. Harm tried to fire the revolver at the
man, but he could not even pull back the
hammer of the weapon and the man made
his escape by Jumping over a fence.
Mr. Harm then went to the front of the
saloon and confronted the burglar who had
been inside the saloon and who had evi
dently witnessed Harm's experience with
his partner, as he coolly walked off when
Harm pointed the revolver at his head and
"I want you."
The frightened proprietor did not follow
the nonchalant burglar, as his revolver
was useless, but notified the police and sev
eral officers were hurried to the scene. The
birds had flown by the time the officers
had arrived and Harm was not even able to
give a good description of the men.
Tho saloon of Louis Nelson, 1102 South
Sixth street, was also entered by burglars
Friday night, who gained entrance by
breaking a window and stole 6 In change.
