The agltatlon'over Immigration leg
islation and the investigation into con
ditions confronting tbe Immigrant
after landing In this country seem to
be having at least one good result in
dire-tlng attention to some of the weak
spots In our immigration machinery.
That our unprecedented growth and
procperlty Is in large part due to the
steady influx of new population from
abrosl In universally admitted, and
even those who cry for further restric
tion are careful to Inveigh only against
the "unr'iesirable" immigrant. That we
have been altogether too neglectful of
the newcomer, and that this neglect
has much to do with the degree of
c'eslrabllity is also becoming plainer.
With vast undeveloped resources
und the Insatiable demand for skilled
and unskilled labor in some parts of
the country all the time, it Is found
that the immigration problem is com
plicated for the most part by the In
adequate means of distribution with
resultant congestion in the big cities
In which the Immigrants first debark.
The immigration authorities have been
exercising scrupulous care in sifting
the incoming throngs as they go
through the gates, but once within our
borders the immigrant has been left
to shift for himself and get his bear
ings as best he may in a strange land
amidst unaccustomed surroundings,
and among people speaking a, to him,
foreign tongue.
The principal thing needed by the
Immigrant when he arrives here Is
help and guidance to get started right.
Give half a chance to the man who has
the energy and grit to break all home
ties in order to achieve better things
in a new land, and he will take care
of himself. In New York state where
the immigration problem presses heavi
est, it is proposed to establish and
maintain a state Immigration bureau
to look after the ne"w arrivals, put
them In touch with friends and rela
tives, assist them to reach their points
of ultimate destination and to protect
them in the interval against fraud and
ppollatlon In the numerous pitfalls
that are spread for them In a word
to make easier the transit from op
pression and dependence to freedom
and self-support. '
This duty does not devolve on New
York state alone, but should be met
by other states as well, and perhaps
by the genoral government itself. It
goes without saying that where the
states undertake to extend this help
to the immigrant the federal Im
migration authorities should by all
means co-operate in every possible
way. This country need have no fear
about keeping its gates wide open to
the ambitious and energetic people of
the old world who may want to come
here. If only we ,see to It that .they
start Tight.
. Do Not Scatter Your Fire.
The clergy is still asking the Ques
tion, "Why do not more men attend
church?" One minister who sent out
several hundred letters of inquiry to
as many men read the answers, tore
them up and from the whole formed
the concrete conclusion,' "Because
they do not. want to."
This conclusion presupposes the
present to be an irreligious age, a
view which ministers as a whole are
not content to take. They are show
ing a disposition at last to turn the
searchlight of inquiry inward, and this
gives some encouragement for a solu
tion of their problem. At a recent
gathering of ministers in Omaha a
prominent attorney, active in church
affaire, delivered a toast, "The Pew's
View of the Pulpit," In which he took
the position that too many ministers'
scatter their fire and do not concen
trate enough, and also that as a con
sequence they too frequently go Into
their pulpits unprepared.
Irreligious age or not, this Is an age
when men are thinking, when the
spellbinder in pulpit or on the stump
cannot sway people's minds as he once
did unless he has a message. Tbe
preacher who spends most of the week
running from pillar to post In matters
that concern him only in proportion to
his individual relation to society can
not be thoroughly prepared to instruct
dnd enlighten his congregation on
Sunday, and he cannot expect long to
hold the attention unless he gives
something more than the huslu of
superficial thought which he has been
able to snatci up on the run. Complete
preparation, coupled with a deep con
viction and backed by an irreproach
able character will go a long way
toward Insuring the preacher a respect
ful hearing. It Is strange, too, that
ministers do not see that if each pastor
concentrated his energy on 'the work
cf his own church he would soon re
move the occasion for diverting his
activities. Infusion of this generating
force into the membership of each
church would soon arouse them all
into a live, vorklng community, each
member doing his part. And Is not
this, after all, one of the ends to be
Uplift of the West
From all parts of tbe country come
comforting assurances that business Is
again on a solid footing. The great
manufacturing centers of the east
have recovered from whatever depres
sion might have checked their activity;
the financial centers of the country re
port a steady demand for funds and
the great loan agencies have raised
their interest rate a most conclusive
proof that the demand for money has
increased; and alongside of these cer
tain indications of continued prosper
ity may be ranged tbe evidence! of
general activity in the west.
People have become to accustomed
to the building of new railroads, the
creation ef new centers of population
and the opening up of new regions of
agriculture that the mention of qne or
another excites scarcely passing notice.
But amidst this general stir and bustle)
the activity now animating the whole
western country is worthy of attention
ureat railroad systems have appropri
ated enormous sums of money for the
purpose of putting themselves Into con
dition to care for the steadily growing
traffic and to provide for the needs of
the communities thev serve. New
projects for the extension of the agri
cultural domain are taking on dally
the form of actual existence. A steady
stream of new population is pouring
Into the western states. Not one of
them has a monopoly on this growth,
but all the region generally referred to
as "the west" shares in it. At no time
since the great days of the early rush,
to the fertile lands of the Great Plains
has the uplift been more marked than
it is during the present spring. This
Is tha most encouraging sign now in
sight. It means new life, new homes,
new towns, greater growth and greater
wealth, and a groater share In the gen
eral bounty of the country for tho peo
ple who are already established in the
England's New King.
The ascent of George V to the
throne aa king of England transcends
in world Interest the passing of his
Illustrious father and must be fraught
with a feeling of apprehension by even
the closest friends of Great Britain In
the family of nations. The new king
finds his country on the threshold of
a new era in its civic life, facing a
political crisis from which it can
emerge with safety only by the exer
cise of the wisest statesmanship.
When a single misstep might plunge
It into grave danger, it is a severe
crucible In which to try the metal of
a sovereign.
But King George brings to tbe
throne no Inconsiderable qualities to
match his great task. He is in the
prime of life, vigorous, alert, deter
mined. He is aa progressive as was
Edward, if not as democratic and has
had experience to season his powers.
On more than one occasion he has dis
played a knowledge, of affairs and
breadth of view and conception of
what was best for Great Britain's wel
fare that have opened the eyes of his
and other nations. His famous speech
after touring the colonies calling on
England to "wake up," still rings in
the ears of commons and peers alike.
The fact is the feeling of misgiving
attending his ascension will arise more
because of the change in rulers than
because George becomes king, for
neither his people nor others will have
the doubt of him that they had of his
father whan he went to the throne on
the death of Victoria.
Fortunately for him, the new king
Will have his father's sober judgment
and even temperament to guide him
in the present turmoil of national poli
tics and at the very outset becomes
heir to his wisdom In securing a late
date for the election which is to go so
far toward shaping the future of the
kingdom. It is Inconceivable that Ed
ward could have foreseen his end In
exerting his influence against a spring
election, but in the light of events he
could have acted from no wiser motive,
fcr it would have been extremely con
fusing for the change in rulers to come
In the midst, or on the eve of a general
election as would have happened had
not the election been put off until fall.
But the most beneficent legacy of
statesmanship whloh King Edward be
queathed his son and people In the
ordeal of this crisis 1b to be found in
the fact that today, while Parliament
and the country are torn with party
strife, the throne is not on trial. And
It would have been on trial long ago
but for the cool diplomacy of the
ruler who has just laid down
The School and the State.
Germany is today one of the strong
est of world powers and her progress
dates from the time she, adopted the
principle enunciated by one of her
foremost thinkers, "Whatever we put
into the state we must first put into
tbe schools." It Is axiomatic to speak
of the German as a thinker. He is
essentially the kind of thinker that
Ambassador James Bryce was plead
ing for In a recent speech an inde
pendent thinker; he does bla own
reasoning. And this is largely be
cause of tbe character of his early
school training. He has come to it
through slow, but sure, processes.
Americans boast, and rightly so, of
their system of education, their public
schools particularly, but American
parents want to change their general
view of the public school before their
children derive the largest benefits
that may flow from it. They want to
view the school, not simply as a build
ing where children are taught to read
and write and spell and a few other
things, but rather as the institutional
center of their lives, a place where
they shall learn the lessons in funda
mental government, a process for
character training. They need to re
gard the school as tha foundation
stone of civic life, aa the vitals, not
the limbs of the body politic. The
children, of course, have their higher
lesson to learn. It la for them to be
taught to exalt the Idea and ideal of
education, but they will not be 'likely
to learn this lesson thoroughly until
the parent has learned his.
But progress is being made toward
this better goal, whether the essence
of statesmanship, aa comprehended in
the German's epigram, Is sufficiently
permeating our public school system
or not. We need but to look at the
Institutional side of our schools for
proof of this. The departments of
manual training have a vital bearing
on this point, and that work begins In
the kindergarten and goes to the high
school. It Is a dull child who falls to
grasp new ideas of the purpose of ed
ucatlon from making useful articles
with his own hands. The natural
effect is to broaden his mental vision
because it diversifies his scope of ac
Nebraska and the Doctors.
One of the doctors who took part in
the antituberculosis congress at
Washington during tho week rather
severely criticised the Nebraska legis
lature for the tuberculosis sanitarium
law passed at the last session. It ap
pears that the Nebraska law-makers
have gone rather faster than the doc
tors desired. This can bo accounted
for only on the theory that the mem
bers of the legislature thought per
haps that they could not have too
much of a good thing, but the doctors
hold otherwise. The mistake made,
if mistake it was, la not vital to the In
tent of the law. While the process of
Immunization by inoculation required
by the Nebraska law does not meet the
approval of all the doctors, it certainly
has the support of some, else It would
not have been adopted. Holding Ne
braska up to ridicule because of the
enthusiasm of men untrained In med
ical lore is not the best way to attract
popular support to the effort to stamp
out tuberculosis.
One of the chief features of the crit
icism hitherto levied against the law
makers has been their indifference on
this point. They have been accused
of appropriating money to protect farm
animals, while refusing to give the
same assistance to human beings. The
Nebraska legislature approached the
question with the zeal of a new con
vert and undertook to provide all that
might be essential in the effort to pro
tect humanity against the great white
plague, as well as to relieve those al
ready suffering from Its attack. This
spirit is to be commended, even if its
manifestation does not wholly com
mend itself to the experts who have
agreed on very few points, especially
when those few points are compre
hended in the Nebraska law. If the
Immunization feature of the law ' is
seriously objectionable It can easily be
removed. Rebuking law-makers tie
cause they are unable to ' follow the
ramifications of medical debate is not
calculated to provide the solution.
Healthy Public Sentiment.
Men of vast fortunes , are giving
millioi.B to education, religion, charity
and other worthy causes. Andrew
Carnegie dreads tbe thought of dying
rich, John D. Rockefeller organizes a
corporation by which he may dispense
his wealth, D. K. Pearsons chuckles
in boastful glee that he at 90 has
only a few millions left, while Mrs.
Russell Sage, Misa Anne Morgan, Miss
Helen Gould and others are proceeding
with varied plans of giving. Mani
festly among tha "big rich" the vision
of the purpose of wealth has changed
as well as has the attitude toward the
less fortunate member of society.
What has brought about the change?
Does Christ's warning to Nlcodemus
alarm them? Does the ominous eye of
the needle stare the rich in the face?
Have they come at last to the real
answer to that immortal query thun
dered through the ages, "Am 1 my
brother's keeper?"
The extent of this Influence Is not
to be measured, but it requires no
supernatural vision to 1 see that a
healthy assertive public sentiment has
produced good results. The voice of
the people is the motive power of the
government and this voice has been
raised in popular disapproval of the
hoarding of falulous fortunes until it
has brought a response. Through tbe
channels of public expression, ibiefly
the daily press, on the platform and
in legislation, the people have spoken
decisively in the last few years and
they have created a sentiment which
is working out its own results. It is
one of the best achievements wrought
in this country, this thing of enlisting
the service of millionaires in solving
everyday problems of human life and
destiny and it is an inevitable refuta
tion of that pessimistic disclaimer
against wealth mertly as wealth.
Tellinj it to the World.
"Gentlemen, His Majesty is dead."
Within a very few minutes after
Lord Knollys thus addressed the wait
ing reporters at Buckingham palace,
newsboys were rending the night air
with their frantic cry, "All about King
Edward's death," and the suspense of
dread was broken by the grief of
knowledge. It was the announcement
to the world that Britain's sovereign
had passed away. Tbe succeeding
king, to be sure, dispatched tbe sur
rowful news to the lord mayor of Lon
don, attaches of the court had officially
advised British representatives at home
and abroad and embassies flashed the
messages back and forth. But not
until those five words were communi
cated to the patient, humble reporters,
waiting outside the walls, did the
world-at-large have knowledge of the
king's death.
It is the same in every great event
of public interest the message to tbe
world is transmitted through the
medium of this same watting reporter
who keeps bis vigil through days of
trying excitement and nights of weary
ing gloom, who stands behind the
scenes, out of view from the eager
millions that await bis word. The

importance of this reporter's work. It

and what one reads;
