There is not another community In
the whole United States which occupies
the peculiar position of Omaha and
South Omaha.
To be more specific there is not
another spot In the country lying
wholly within one county in one and
the same state where two separate
municipal governments are maintained
to administer the affairs of a popula
tion contiguously located', Identical in
business and social interests and sepa
rated only by an imaginary geographi
cal line.
Teat Omaha and South Omaha will
eventually be one city in government,
as it already is in all other respects,
will hardly be controverted by anyone
of well balanced mind, and that the
time is close at hand to effect this
union must be plain to all whose vision
is not biased by considerations of im
mediate or personal interest.
It is to-be expected that the office
holders, who would be displaced by
annexation, and the political onhang
ers, who enjoy or hope to enjoy
political spoils resting on existing con
ditions, will be strenuously opposed to
consolidation and fight to ward it off
whenever It is suggested. Some other
people, skillfully deceived or honestly
mistaken, may be persuaded to believe,
that South Omaha has more to gall
by maintaining its individual Identity,
but those good people of South Omaha
who will study the subject intelligently
and dispassionately will discover that
the only question they have to answer
is whether the consolidation shall take
place now or later.
There are a gretit many convincing
reasons why the present is the time to
take this step and to urge that the
sooner it is done the sooner will both
cities reap the impetus sure to follow
for still greater Industrial expansion
and business prosperity.
As part of the Greater Omaha of the
future, South Omaha will not only
continue to be the great center of meat
packing industry, but will become
more than ever the manufacturing sec
tion of the city and the preferred dis
trict for workingmen's homes.
Full participation In the advantages
of the larger city will prove to be com
plete compensation for any loss of local
prestige. At least, that has been the
experience of other towns In all Blmilar
cases of merger with, larger cities.
The people of South Omaha will
have an opportunity in voting on con
solidation to rise above petty preju
dices and, to adjust themselves to the
actual conditions which confront them,
and If they consult their true interests,
the march of progress of the two
cities will be quickened and advanced
by several years.
The Horse Show has come to be one
of the Institutions which distinguishes
Omaha as belonging to the metropoli
tan class, and its advent this year
ought to arouse more interest and en
thusiasm than ever before.
The Horse Show has been promoted
in Omaha by an association of horse
lovers as a matter of publlo enterprise
rather than of private profit, and has
served to attract attention to our city
from far and wide for public spirit and
ambitious determination to keep
abreast of the times.
Of course, every one knows that the
horses, while In themselves affording
an Instructive entertainment, are not
the sole attraction of the Horse Show,
which gives occasion for a display by
members of the so-called society set,
which is equally if not more interest
ing to those out of it as well as to those
In It.
The Horse Show is one of the events
of the season into whose spirit all.
classes of our people who are able to
do so should enter.
Norway has officially decreed that
the "blood-tapping process of emigra
tion" must be stopped to prevent the
lusty brain of the nation from seeking,
better conditions in the United States.
Lieutenant Colonel Morton II. Magnus
of the Norwegian government is In this
country for the special purpose of pre
vailing on patriotic countrymen to re
turn to the native land and further
aiding in a propaganda against Nor
wegian emigration.
No more desirable immigrants come
to America than from the Scandi
navian peninsula. They have played
an important part in the development
of the west and northwest and there is
little danger that they will be with
drawn by any ' royal decree. The
Swedes and Norwegians come to
America with capacity for self-government
and self-improvement well de
veloped. They need no education to
understand the theory of. our institu
tions or to teach them respect for the
law and established order. They are
clean, stalwart, independent and thrive
In America.- Of course, it would b
lamentable, from a world standpoint,
if Norway should decline on account
cf the emigration of Its young and
strong men and women, but Indications
are that Colonel Magnus has over
estimated the danger from that source.
The special agent of Norway might
have succeeded in arousing more sym
pathy over the alleged condition of his
(government if his interviews had not
been published almost slmultaneoubly
with the report of the American con
sul at Bergen on the thoughtful car
of the Norwegians in America for the
old folks at home. According to this
report, 55,800 remittances, aggrega
ting 6,130.000 kroner, or $1,374,840,
were sent back by postal order to Nor
way in the first three months of the
present year by Norwegians who have
mad their homes In America. At
this rate, which is even lobs than nor
ma), the remittances of Norwegians in
,Auiciii'a to uiw loias at ouui win
amount to about $5,500,000 a year, or
more than $5 each for every man,
woman and child In the kingdom.
That may not be a very large amount
of money, according to the American
standard, but fS goes a long way In
Norway. It Is estimated that the
national income of Norway Is about
$16,000,000, or but little more than
three times the amount sent to that
country by Norwegian-Americans. This
Includes only the postal order remit
tances thus made a matter of publlo
record. The amounts sent by regis
tered mall, drafts, express orders and
International exchange cannot be defi
nitely ascertained. Norway has little
cause for complaint against the Nor
wegians In America so long as they
send home each year an amount of
money exceeding one-third of all the
taxes collected by the kingdom.
Rabbi Krauskonf of Philadelphia is
endeavoring to start a crusade in New
York for the amelioration of the condi
tion of the unfortunates In the slum
districts by delivering a series of ad
dresses on the subject, "A Way Out of
the Ghetto." His way leads to the
country, where there is land, fresh air.
pure water and profitable employment
for thousands who have made the
natural error, upon their arrival in this
country, of seeking employment and
establishing homes, such as they are,
in the already overcrowded tenement
districts of the larger cities. Dr. Kraus
kopf is carrying the cheering message
to the tenement dwellers that there is
room enough on Uncle Sam's farms for
all who are willing to go there.
The proper distribution of the Immi
grants arriving in this country is one
of the most serious phases of the labor
question, one that has caused much
worry to the officials of the Immigra
tion and labor bureaus of the govern
ment. Causes for congestion In the big
cities are not hard to find. The average
Immigrant reaches the United States
with little knowledge of the conditions
in this country. He is apt to have
exaggerated notions of the ease with
which wealth. may be acquired and a
false idea of the elements of freedom
and liberty In the gaining of a liveli
hood. Frequently he comes with scant
means, barely enough to land him at
New York, or some other port of entry,
and ill-prepared for a more or less
expensive railroad trip to the Interior,
where work at profitable wages would
await him. He finds colonies of his
countrymen la the big cities and Joins
them, at once assuming the heavy bur
den of living and diminishing his
chances of getting away from the al
ready congested centers. The result,
as Dr. Krauskopf wisely expresses it,
Is "a slum-bred physical and moral
degeneracy, which should alarm the
nation." He urges the Jewish charity
association, to whom his addresses
have been Chiefly directed, to use their
funds In purchasing large tracts of
lands and establishing agricultural
Dr. KrauBkopfs remark are' Worthy
of much wider application. The supply
of cheap labor In the large cities is
excessive, while the rest of the country,

mouth, who must, with their families,
constantly see the stress of want ahead
of them. If the immigrants can be
diverted to the farms and factories of
the Interior they will find health and
wealth and relieve an undesirable con
dition that now obtains In both the
city and the country;
After a two or three years' course
of warnings against the dangers of
over-eating, a drill in the list of foul
products on the tabooed list and a sys
tematic instruction in methods for de
tecting and punishing different' kinds
of germs that flourish in everything
from soup to nuts, the average citizen
will greet as a welcome relief the opin
ion of two famous scientists to the
effect that the beet thing to do to in
sure good health is to eat about any
thing you want, as much of It as you
want and when you want 'it. These
views will doubtless come as some
thing of a shock to the eminent ex
perts who seem' to take a special de
light in telling people what they must
eat and must not eat. When a person is
feeling out of sorts enough to consult
a physician he is usually given a liat
of things he may eat and almost In
variably they are things he detests
and another list of things he must not
eat or drink, although his appetite
may be crying for them.
But here comes Dr.. C. W. Saleeby,
one of the most eminent biologists and
scientists in the world, and Sir James
Crichton Browne, recognized as the
leading physician and scientist of Lon
don, and both agree that "the fash
ionable food tads and follies of the
hour are in the nature of deprivation"
and should be rejected by sane people.
The' London physician, in an address
before a British medical convention,
So fierce in some quarters Is the propa
gation of dietetic asceticism that. In dread
pf being suspected of gluttony, we can
only. Indulge a healthy appetite tn secret.
One of the main causes for such mental
and physical degeneracy as exists among
us is bad and Insufficient food.
Dr. Saleeby goes even further and
Insists that, as a rule, a roan should
eat what h wants, as much as he
wants and whenever he wants. Appe
tite, he declares, is the guide provided
by nature to ' maintain ' health and
strength. He calls attention to the
fact that animals follow this guide and
ar never sufferers irom digestive
troubles so long as they hav been al
lowed to select their own food. .He
thinks the case should be the same
with man.
Perhaps it Is not safe to offer advice
where doctors disagree, but It Is a
heap pleaaanter for folks to eat what
they want without fearing that they
are courting death. If a man wants
a good old ham and egg breakfast,
with a stack of buckwheats on the
side, It will be a solace to him to feel
that he may have It Instead of predl
gested bran and a cup of near-coffee
without inviting a visit from the un
dertaker. Whatever the doctors may
think about it, the average man will
like the advice of Browne and Saleeby,
both because it In agreeable and be
cause It accords with common sense.
The appetite should be a safe monitor,
as it is furnished by nature for that
purpose, and nature does not often
make mistakes. After being burdened
to death with scientific theories about
over-eating It must be a comfort to
find someone giving advice that people
would give themselves.
It is said that James K. Jones has
written a letter to Mr. Bryan advising
him to keep out of the presidential
race next year. Mr. Bryan will doubt
less remember what happened to him
on former occasions when he followed
Mr. Jones' advice. - '

Iaspravement In Corporations.
Wall Street Journal.
There have been many evils in the admin

the ' last few years. Borne of these evils
have been removed; some still remain. The
publlo attention has, however, been se
monopolized by the evils that It has failed

t'neery Rays ef Astoma Uti Gladden
the Landscape.
Washington 1'oat. j
The goldon sun of autumn shines with
peculiar brilliance upon the happy land
railed the United States. The busy harvest .
fields, th rushing trains and steamer, th '
teeming and smoking cities, the countless '
herds and the belching mmith of mines
make th greatest and most varied picture
of human happiness that the rolling globe (
turns to tho sun. It Is a mighty scene, too
large to. be grasped by man's Imagination, i
even though winged with genius. The fruit
of a year's toll Is being gathered up Into
a million barns. The corn of nourishment,
the wine of refreshment and the oil of Joy
are filling bin and cask and urn to over
flowing. The music of healthy work, the
laughter of muscle and steam and the con
fusion of a thousand prosperities mingle
In a symphony more rrrajostlc than tho
dreams of Beethoven. These are the sounds
of peace and health and doubtless ar
rightly construed by Providence as uncon
scious praise and thanksgiving.
Sunburned and with the strength of
youth, this glorious country faces winter
and another year. The account of 1907 has
been made up. Nothing remains but to
store the fruits, is there anything melan
choly in the approach of winter and rough
weather In such a land? In the hard old
days winter meant a living death to the
farmer. Now It Is the season of enjoyment,
when thrift feeds on the fatness it stored
up betimes. Social pleasures make the
dark days bright, and the roaring fire
makes delightful contrast to the sleety
blast. In the cities there I no cause for
mournfulness In the short days and long
nights. They are most . welcome to all
men of open mind and cheerful soul. Espe
cially In Washington, the nest of winter
delights, does summer end Joyfully and
autumn unfold Its husk of sweets. October
comes to Washington as Robin Hood came
to Sherwood Forest. This brown and Jolly
month dances In, his arm encircling the
balmy and buxom waist of Ceres, and the
wassail flows merrily as they whirl through
the scarlet woods. Jack Frost, the magi
cian, is master of the revels. He hangs
strange colors in the trees and conjures up
a mysterious change In . the sun's light.
Common things .begin to seem unreal In
this Indian summer radiance. The aston
ished mortal, before he Is aware, nods him
self In a land of faery and must pinch him
self to be certain he is not translated.
October a mournful month? Bah I It Is
the happiest time of the year to honest
men. Only the mole-eyed., soured and
thriftless wight, "whose . downward eye
still looketh for a grave," has a right to
be melancholy In October.'
An Incident of the Reeeat Address at
Caaten, O. -
Philadelphia Ledger.
The president, face to face with a portion
of- his publlo at Canton, had aa experience
which ought to be instructive. When he
read that, remarkable portion of his speech
referring to the Latin republics, with the
conclusion that "every manifestation of
Ignorant envy and hostility toward honest
men' who acquire wealth by honest means
should be crushed at the outset by the
weight of a sensible public opinion," there
was no response from the listening crowd.
Probably 'nobody dissented from this Just
sentiment, but It was not distinctively
Rooseveltlan and it -excited no enthusi
asm. ' It' was not what the people were
wanting to hear from hiih.
As he went on, however; to denounce the
"dishonest business men" "and to speak
of the Importance ef'the war upon the
chicanery and wrongdoing which are1 pe
culiarly noxious,", because commjtted by
men who -"have no excuse of poverty" for
their crimes," exerybody recognised tho
voice, 'and the applause was so loud surHo
interrupt the speaker, who said:
"Walt a moment; I don't want you to
applaud this part unless you are willing
also to applaud th part I read first, to
which, you .listened in silence. , I want
you to understand that I will stand Jut
as-straight for the lights of ' the "honest
man who wins his fortune ' by.'- honest
methods as. I. Will stand against the dis
honest man who win. a fortune by dis
honest methods."
He then went back and re-read the pas
sage referred to, saying that he wanted
his hearers "to applaud the other senti
ment also," and when they had done so
to his satisfaction, he continued, "Thank
you, now- I'll go on." .
The incident is typical. Nobody im
agines that the president has ever had
any other Idea than the equal applica
tion of the laws to rich and poor alike.
That Is Ja basic principle which should
be taken for granted. But his denuncia
tion of the "predatory rich" has been so
Insistent and so active that nobody has
paid much attention . to the qualifying
adjective, and he now finds it necessary
to go out of hta. way to repeat thut his
war is not against wealth as such, nut
only against wealth that Is "dishonest."
That Is evidently what he particularly
meant to say at Canton.
It Is, Indeed, . a sorry day when the
president o these United States must,
forsooth, explain that he does not advo
cate "confiscation."
