SOUTH OMAHA, April li-Ta the Edi
tor of The Bee: It wad with a sense of
satt.factlon that many of your readers
resd your recent editorial on "Foreign
Missions and World Peace," which assured
us that the former Imprudent, untrained
missionary waa being replaced by men bet
ter suited for the task. Leaving out of
consideration the enormous spiritual havoc
that unsuitable men can work In such a
field of endeavor, Un-y have, a you say,
also brought about material troubles In the
form of international disturhancea by their
misdirected energy. However, recent de
velopments would Indicate that there Is yet
plenty of room for Improvement In the
missionary material that Is being sent
abroad from the United States. But if you
can. some day soon, assure us that the
ranks of the Associated Press reporters in
foreign news centers are being replaced by
safer and nancr men. It will again replenish
our cup of Joy. No set of men have In
their hands the power to disturb Internat
ional relations to the extent that those men
have, for the press more than any other
element molds the opinion of the ordinary
reading public. And If press reports are
untruthful, exaggerated, or give a wrong
perspective, then public oplnian formed
on them as a basts will of course possess
the same qualities.
In this way prejudices and passions are
aroused that increase In volume until they
become an Irrefutable force. History proves
that even war has resulted from Inflamed
public opinion, where under other circum
stances, war would not be resorted to.
Our Spanish-American war waa caused
by sentiment, when little material Interests
were involved. The contributing causes of
a desire for Cuban liberty, the Maine's des
truction, etc., were entirely overshadowed
by the feeling that our national pride was
affronted. And who told us It was me
Associated Press reporters in Cuba. How
our fists did Itch for an opportunity to
take the Insolence out of those Cuban Span-
lards when we read those dispatches, sent
by Correspondent Scovllla and others, giv
ing accounts of the insults heaped upon
us "TaiiVee dogs and Yankee pigs." Well,
at last we worked ourselves Into a real war
spirit President McKinley and congress
could hardly stem the torrent long enough
to put the army and navy in condition for
war, so fierce was the clamor. When the
war was over, and the American army oc
cupied Cuba, It Is Interesting to note that
those same reporters were literally kicked
out of Cuba by the American authorities,
so offensive had their attitude become.
Had the Spanish authorities done that in
the first place, it Is possible that other
means than war would have settled the
disturbance. The Associated Press men
abroad evidently act on the adago of P. T.
Barnum. "Tho American public does love to
be humbugged." When Cardinal Merry Del
Val has not time to afford an Interview
they send up a "pipe" Involving his father, .
aunt, or mother-in-law, in wnicn xne
"Yankees" are auain Insulted.
When Mr. Roosevelt and Mr. Plnchot
fail to unbosom themselves to these un
scrupulous fellows, they Imagine what the
mutual interest was, and forward us the
result in the hope of stirring up more
If the editors of our Influential news
papers win devise some plan of weeding
out those liars from the press service
abroad, they will render a valuable service
to both truth and patriotism.

Omaha. April II. To the Editor of Tha
Bee: These census enumerators that are

appeal from them? For downright In
qulsltiveness, I point to their list of queries,
why, they even expect a poor woman to
reveal the tragedy of her life her age.
With ruthless scrutiny they eye the pitiless
figures of her hemic self-mastery and then
oh, agony of agonies! ask her io swear to
It. For one moment she craves the privi

rather been attached by masculinity.

moval of silver threads among ther red and
her nractlce of 'a teetering step that Is
supposed to herald youth on tha wing. If

quisition are to go on their way rejoicing?
Well, there's a morsel of comfort for
some of us and that Is this: So severe a
trouncing comes but once a decade and by
the time the next arrives many a brain
twisted, heart-sore woman will have pasaed

The meeting waa presided; over by Clem
ent Chase, who in his Introductory re
marks said that this was nut by any means
the crrTuTudlng meeting of the laymen s
movement, but wai really the beginning
of the movement.. Ha waa pleased to see
from the large attendance that the spirit
of tha laymen's movement was still In the
air and boded well for its enduring char
acter. Reports were called for from the
churches represented as to the progress
being made In meeting the pledges made
for support of the movement at the March
convention. Many of the churrhea reported
that they would double their pledges.
Others bad already mat or would soon
meet their pledges. In fact, scarcely a
church but gave in Ihc most encouraging
reports. Some of the denominations had
been unable to make a thorough canvass
since the convention on accuunt of it
being the close of tha ecclesiastical year,
nnd others had been busy with the serv
ices of holy week, but now that these
matters were out of the way the laymen's
movement work would be taken up and
there would be no- Question but that the peerage, a large rent-roll and a long stand

Short addresses were delivered by several another nobleman. In order to Insert a
of the ministers, in which they all spoke
of the Inspiration that has been given
every branch of church work by the lay
men's movement. Instances were given
where Sunday school classes had pledged
themselves to a plan to educate a native
girl and native boy In some foreign misi
sion field, while some of the small churches
had obligated themselves to see to tha
support of native Christian teachers In
foreign lands and other churches hod as
sumed the responsibility of the support of
a missionary In thel foreign field. In addi
tion to their contributions to foreign mis
sions. Thirty or more churches gave positive
assurances that the quota of $2 to 15 per
member would be raised for foreign mis
sions during the year, and most of them
gave further assurances that these contri
butions would be permanent.
It was shown by the various reports that
as an outgrowth of the laymen's move
ment that laymen had gone out In the
field to work. Men who formerly would
do nothing In the line of church work were
now at worlt- Missionary subscriptions
were doubling and every indication pointed
to tho fact that tn laymen's interest In
church work was permanent.
At the close of the meeting Clement
Chase said: "While them Is an lndeflnite
ness about many of the- reports that have
Just been given in, yet this will not affect
the results or enthusiasm. The executive
committee will shortly send out a call for
more definite flgarest from the various
churches. I .wish further to say that I
have become deeply interested In this great
movement and have ixjraatly enjoyed ' the
associations and nfew Acquaintances I have
made since associated wlrn It and am yet
at your service in forwarding the cause of
foreign missions." "
Mr. Chaste called attention' to the great
meeting of the Men's National Missionary
congress to be held fn Chicago May J-a,
whichi he- stated, wtruld" bo one of the
greatest religious meetings of the world.
He urged that as many Omaha people
should attend the great meeting as could.
The program Includes addresses by many
of tha foremost ministers, bishops and
laymen of the United- States.

That's some name, but tha company has
enough well built and healthy women folks
to carry 1L Also, they, carry through a
rather pretentious program. In which the
silent presence on tha stage of a number
of well dressed and good looking girls
more than compensates for the boisterous
behavior of two male persons who are
libeling the word "comedian" by their
antics. All the way through, tha feminine
end of the company outshines the mas
culine. Tha distinctive feature of tha
performance is the dance by Mile. Murln
and Signor Ferrari. Thla la a part of a
clever pantomimic sketch, illustrating an
evening among the "Apaches" of Pairs.
Tha girl wins back ber lover from a slrrn
who had nearly captivated him, and the
two do a wild, almost uncanny dance. Tt
does not deserve the reputation that at
taches to the so-called "Apache" dancs
that has been used aa a ahocker in tha
east, for It la not vulgar nor suggestive in
any way, but Is a maddening whirl. In
which such souls might well unite. Ths
pantomime Is made the .more realistic by
the murder of the dancing girl at ths hands
of tha loser, and the grief of the lover for
tha death of his mistress. Not a word la
spoken during tha Sketch, but the acting
is so forcible aa to leave little misunder
stood. The other specialties are enjoyable.
