Walt and see.
Time to Wake Up.
It Is time for the people of Omaha,
and especially the business men of
Omaha, to wake up to the necessity of
seeing to It that this city and county
are properly represented In the legis
lature. Omaha every year spends hundred
of thousands of dollars to cultivate
trade territory and to cement a feel
ing of friendship with the cities and
towns and rural districts of the whole
Omaha holds its annual Ak-Sar-Ben
festival for the express purpose of en
tertaining visitors from surrounding
communities and making them feel
that we appreciate their confidence
Omaha has projected and carried oa
successfully the National Corn show,
designed to help educate the farmers
to more modern methods of agricul
ture and Insure prosperity on the farm
In which the city will later share.
Omaha Bends out each year several
trade excursions to return In person
the friendly visits we receive from the
merchants an trades people who pur
chase goods here.
Omaha annually entertains a score
or more conventions and meetings of
societies or organizations interested in
special work In commerce, education,
social reform and religious propa
ganda and tries to keep in touch with
what Is being done in these lines
throughout the state.
And then after this tremendous ex
penditure of time, effort and money to
get closer to the people of the state,
we permit a bunch of disrepi tables,
self-seekers, corporation hirelings and
notorious grafters to go down to Lin
coln as our accredited representatives
in the legislature, to undo In a few
short weeks what we have laborious!
accomplished in years.
The Bee does not hesitate to say
that, .with not to exceed two excep
tions, the Douglas county delegation
in the. late legislature could scarcely
have been worse. Instead of making
friends for Omaha and shaping legis
lation to benefit their constituents,
their disgusting behavior and brazen
subserviency to corporation masters
antagonized and alienated ttve decent
membership of the legislature or
dinarily disposed to be fair.
Assuming that the roustabouts and
tricksters constituting the Douglas
delegation were truly representative of
the people who sent them there, and
that their flagrant misconduct was
typical of Omaha as a whole, the law
makers from the outside districts
simply refused to give Omaha any con
sideration whatever or to place any
dependence upon the Douglas county
gang. Advocacy of a measure by the
delegation from Omaha came to be
equivalent to its condemnation either
as a boodle Job or a corporation
The Bee hopes the sad and costly
lesson will not have to be learned
again soon. It will take a long time
to repair the damage done to Omaha
by its misrepresentation at Lincoln
this winter, even if the reckless ex
periment Is not repeated.
Home Building and Prosperity.
No better evidence of the perman
ency of the prosperity which Omaha
and this section of the west Is enjoy
ing could be had than the amount and
character of the building operations,
not only of this city, but of the smaller
towns and surrounding country. There
Is not a single structure being erected
which is Intended to house a purely
speculative enterprise. In the commer
cial world we have evidences of ex
pansion and enlargements innumer
able and new enterprises along well
established lines, but these are simply
responsive to pressing demands.
The most notable feature Is the
erection of homes, providing not only
accommodations for more people, but
quarters more and more comfortable
than before. The poor and those who
used to live in squalor have not been
altogether eliminated, and it would be
too much to expect that they will ever
be, but the conclusion is driven home
to all who will observe, that the peo
ple generally, are year by year, on
the average, living in greater comfort
and enjoying greater household con
vepiences. More Light on the Kealing Case.
The tender solicitude recently ex
pressed by Mr. Bryan in ' his Com
moner for the United States district
attorney who "showed himself willing
to resign an office rather than to en
ter upon a criminal prosecution which
he believes to be unwarranted and
dangerous to the public" gets some
new light from the report Just sub
mitted by the special committee of the
National Civil Service Reform league
which devotes a paragraph to the per
nicious political activity of federal
officials In Indiana. This Is what the
committee says about Mr. Kealing, the
"honest lawyer," over whom Mr.
Bryan hps been shedding crocodile
In Indiana the republican organisation
has ben for years controlled by what Is
known aa the Fairbanks machine. The
head of the machine all the time has been
Joseph II. Kealing. I'nlted States district
attorney. In the seven years during which
he has held that office lie has devoted
much time and effort to building up and
strengthening that machine. It covers both
state and federal politics. It forced the
nomination of the rvcently defeated candi
date for governor. Wealing was u delegate
to the last national convention and had
charge of the Fairbanks candidacy. A con
siderable nuir.ber of fedeial officeholders

ship nomination, nearly every federal
officeholder In Indiana in the unclassified

activity was of the same kind and nature

tlm and contained the same element of
advantage over private clttaena, whose
time was not paid for by the government,
as In the case of Mr. Keallt.g.
Mr. Bryan evidently thought he
could make some political capital out
of the Kealing Incident, but. again, by
Jumping too hastily at conclusions has
plainly gotten off on the wrong foot.
The Eaitr Festival.
Easter sentiment as symbolizing
the reawakening of nature Is as old
as the race and with each recurring
Easter festival that sentiment grows
stronger In Its hold upon humanity.
It has Its origin in the Inborn Instinct
that the hopes, the aspirations, and
the little of accomplishment of the
few years given to us on earth are
not the whole purpose of the creator
whose wisdom Is exemplified In all
that surrounds us.
The symbols of Easter are but re
flections of those changes which na
ture unfolds with the coming of spring
when whatever was apparentfy dead
once more becomes Instinct with life
and the bleak landscape again takes
on Its dregs of green. In the beauty
of the budding flower nature renders
its dumb tribute, while In songs of
praise man gives voice to the hopes
which nature teaches him are well
grounded hopes not born of philoso
phy or beyond analysis, but grounded
on the concrete evidence which nature
furnishes of their truth.
The symbolisms of Easter and the
thoughts which they engender must be
elevating and inspiring. The universal
observance of the festival furnishes
conclusive proof that the modern-day
world Is not wholly centered In sor
did and temporary things, but remem
bering the uplift of the past Is still
seeking constantly for what is better.
Until within comparatively recent
times the people of the United States
have been living and acting under the
hallucicatlon that the natural re
sources of this country were boundless
and have drawn upon them with a
prodigality born of that Idea. Fortu
nately the awakening has come before
Impoverishment and we are realizing
that the fertility of the soil must be
preserved and that slipshod and waste
ful methods of farming cannot be de
pended upon indefinitely to support
The opinion once common that our
timber resources were sufficient In per
petuity has given place to a certainty
that the forests must be protected and
restored else In the near future the
country would be without lumber, to
say nothing of the damage from denu
dation of the forest areas. Probably
In no one direction has the national
habit of waste been so predominant as
in the use of timber. In the earlier
days of the lumbering industry only
the best was taken and the remainder
burned simply to get It out of the way.
Railroads,' once among the" worst
offenders, are taking the lead in re
forestation and are also employing
scientists to treat artificially varieties
of timber previously considered value
less in order to make them serviceable
and also to increase the life of ties and
other timbers which they use. A re
cent discovery promises a process
which it is maintained will render val
uable the hitherto worthless gumwood
of the south and make the short
leaved pine of that section equal to
the more valuable species.
The former waste of the coal mines
is being utilized, the packing houses
and petroleum refiners have brought
to their aid the ocientlst and there is
now little waste product in these in
dustries. All lines of manufacturing
are aiming at elimination of waste and
sooner or later the idea will permeate
the American home, which is without
doubt the most wasteful of all. This
great country of ours can soon become
many times richer simply by stopping
Relief for a Suffering Public.
The New York court of appeals has
come to the relief of a long suffering
public which has borne none too pa
tiently with the injustice forced upon
it. The court has decided that simply
placing one's baggage In a car seat
does not hold it for the owner of the
baggage while he occupies another
seat with a friend or calmly reposes
on the cushions in the smoking com
partment. In other words, because
the owner of the baggage has paid for
one seat he cannot legally duplex him
self by utilizing his baggage to hold
two seats while some poor, tired mor
tal stands up and waits for a passen
ger to get off at the next station.
All hall the court of appeals of New
York. It has opened up a field of re
form in judicial decisions which
scarcely knows a boundary. The
principle involved, carried to its legiti
mate conclusion, will correct more of
the ills of present-day humanity than
any judicial pronunciamento since It
was officially determined a passenger
had no right to snore loud enough to
wake the porter.
Under the ruling "one fare one
seat" not only has the passenger no
right to hold an extra place with his
baggage, but be is prohibited from
holding an extra seat with his feet,
lie can no longer look deliberately out
of the window while his overcoat rests
peacefully on the outer end of the
cushion and the tired woman holding
a baby patiently and sadly waits for
the friendly nod which bids her shove
over the overcoat and be seated. Even
the weary strap-hanger may get In on
the benefits. No more will the two
stout women be permitted to spread
out and absorb the space just vacated
by a third, for the legal principle has
been fixed that available space belongs
to the available passenger.
The faith of the American people In
their courts has teen once more justi

Dust and Tuberculosis.
Problems of human life arc prob
lems of dollars and cents to the insur
ance man. Nothing which adds to or
detracts from the sum of human exist
ence is overlooked by him. Of the
diseases which afflict humanity none
compares in the number of victims
with tuberculosis, and the investiga
tions of one of the big life insurance
companies as to the causes of this mor
tality disclose some Interesting Infor
mation. The company classifies deaths
from this disease by the occupation of
the victim and the figures obtained
lead to the conclusion that one of the
most potent. If not the most potent,
cause is the dust which finds Its way
Into the lungs of the victim.
Federal statistics and those of the
insurance company indicate that of
deaths from all causes of males over
15 years of age 14.8 per cent were
from consumption. According to in
dustrial Insurance statistics in those
exposed to metallic dust the rate was
36.9 per cent, 26.6 per cent In those
exposed to mineral dust, 2 4.8 per cent
among those exposed to vegetable fiber
dust and 32.1 per cent in those exposed
to animal or mixed fiber dust.
It these figures served no other pur
pose than to fix the rates of life insur
ance in the occupations involved they'
would be of little real service, as the
Industries of this progressive age will
be carried on no matter what the toll
in human life. The same investiga
tions, however, disclose the fact that
this startling death loss Is in a great
measure voidable. It is paid today
because so many factories . are illy
ventilated and without provision to
prevent the dust which the worker Is
compelled to breath. Expert opinion
holds to the belief that Intelligent
methods can reduce the consumption
death rate among wage earners from
2.2 per 1,000 to 1.5 per 1,000, which
would mean an annual saving of
22,238 lives a saving surely worth

In the stress of effort to throw off

country to curb the power of the
trusts, great industrial and railroad
combinations, that we have largely
overlooked the fact that other coun
tries have the same problems and
none has yet attacked them with the
