tunity for making political capital out
of It. Then, to cap the climax, came
that so-called "Conservation congress"

now to expect this Ballinger-Plnchot

Progressive Crop Values.
Secretary Wilson in his report for
the Department of Agriculture says:
"Nothing short of Omniscience can
grasp the value of the farm products
of this year. At no time In the world's
history has a country produced farm
products within one year with a
value reaching $8,926,000,000, which
Is the value of the agricultural prod
ucts of this country for 1910."
From time to time we hear the
criticism that it is costing $1,000,000.
000 to run this government one year,
and at once our economists of the
more pessimistic turn of mind begin
to worry over the prodigal waste. To
begin with, we are not spending that
much money in the conduct of the
government a year. Last year the
total outlay did not quite reach $700,
000,000. But even if It did go to a
billion, that would only enable us by
comparison to partially comprehend
something of the amazing wealth of
our farms. The products in one year
bring enough to run practically nine
btlllon-dollar governments. This, it
would seem. Is in itself a pretty good
argument for the back-to-the-farm-
movement. Yet, we are nowhere near
content with that showing. We are
convinced by actual demonstration
that without expanding our area of
cultivation, the soli is capable of pro
ducing more in crops and money and
so we are continuously applying our
intensive methods to bring about
larger results.
But the most significant feature of
Secretary Wilson's statement is that
our crop values are progressive. The
increase has been continuous every
year since 1899. That was just two
years after the long republican rule
set in upon the heels of the last demo
cratic panic. It required about two
years for the republicans to undo and
do over things preliminary to building
up prices and markets. This, they
did, and we have the results to show
for It. True, a change in administra
tions could not effect climatic condi
tions, and yet it will not do to say
as much about the soil, for the great
reclamation service put into operation
by the republicans, with its concomi
tant of Intensive farming methods,
stands out too boldly as proofs for
that. f
The fact is, conditions that made
for better prices of farm products.
finally enabled the farmers to take
advantage of improved systems and
machinery, and, of course, the direct
resuU Is counted to them In dollars
and cents.
City Government.
There will be time enough for
Omaha to decide on what form of
government is to be adopted when the
matter haa been fully considered from
every side and all its various phases
have been gone over to the end that a
complete understanding may be had.
Advocates of a. radical change from
the present form should temper their
xeal until due consideration has been
given to . questions Involved. The
"Des Moines plan" has been most ably
presented by one of its ardent cham
pions and it would be doing hlu small
justice if he did not gain supporters.
Other advocates of government by
commission have been presenting their
case to the citliens with such plausU
blllty as has gained momentary sup
port, and yet It will not be wise for
Omaha to rush headlong into any new
plan. The mere form of government
does not In Itself provide the remedy
for abuses complained of.- It Is f'l
enough to talk about fixing responsi
bility and placing authority in the
hands of responsible officers, but the
first thing to do is to secure responsi
ble officers. The present form of city
government in Omaha, despite what
may be said to the contrary, is ultra
popular. Thv city officials are nomi
nated by the people at a direct pri
mary and are then aelected by the peo
ple at a secondary election. It will
not do to say that the people have not
had their t holce, nor tan any form of
government be devised which will give
them wider or better opportunity for
The reforms that ar needed In
Omaha's government are not such as
demand radical departures from its
present form. The commission form
of government has Its attractive qual
ities, and Omaha may be ready to
adopt It. but this condition does not
alter the fact that the citizens of
Omaha are directly responsible for the j
officers who now administer the busi
ness affairs of the community.
Fire Traps.
It now appears In the course of an
omcisl Investigation that the recent
wholesale death of factory employes
in Newark might have been prevented
had one door been unlocked. But the
person responsible for that door being
unlocked had "forgotten." Regrets
for the dead and punishment for the
living are alike futile In this case.
Neither will remedy the matter, but
the lesson ought not to be allowed to
go unnoticed. We have been too easy
In such matters In this country. The
Newark disaster should stand as a
solemn warning to employers who oc
cupy large buildings, whether the pen
alty of the law Is visited upon the one
who "forgot" or not.
Divine Right end Dueli.
Emperor William may be an exam
ple of atavism, but he Is so entirely
unique among crowned rulers for his
courageous utterances that not even
the caustic criticism of Reichstag so
cialists can deprive them of their re
freshing Interest to a people accus
tomed to having a man say what he
thinks. That Is why Americans, alien
as they are to the lazy notion of the
divine right of kings or the foolish
fancy that personal honor can only be
avenged through the medieval process
of balancing one's life on the keen
edge of a sword, find time to become
Interested in the kaiser's advocacy of
both these dead Usues.
Yet his own Reichstag is not so pa
tient. It has just got through scold
ing him very severely for his famous
Koenlgsburg speech and it will no
doubt take a decisive iBsue with his
justification of the duel as the best
way of protecting personal honor.
The emperor is a sincere man and does
his best to practice what he preaches
about his divine-wrought authority,
and one may scarcely question his
readiness to fight a duel should such
an improbable challenge of his valor
force itself upon him.
But if the Reichstag feels like re
buking this latest outburst of the
kaiser's, has it not enough power to
denaturlze the duel as France has
done? There it Is the easiest thing in
the world to fight a duel, for the law
gives the family of the victim the
right of civil damages. This thought
ful restriction has worked admirably.
Without lessening the high sense of
the Frenchman's personal honor, it
has thrown about the duel enough
safeguards to guarantee results for
the most picayunish life insurance
agent. The dictum of the courts Is,
"Fight all the duels you want to, but
remember, the other fellow's folks
have a come-back at your pocket
book." Now, strange as it may seem, this
allusion to the pocketbook, even in
the case of death, has fallen like a wet
blanket on the passions of Insulted
Frenchmen, so that it seldom requires,
nowadays, more than the faintest sug
gestion of a sword's touch to satisfy
the most sensitive hair-trigger honor
In the republic. More than that, it
seems about to have done away with
dueling entirely. For even now some
of the best blood of France is stirred
over the popularity of the plan to set
tle all personal matters hereafter with
the fists.
1 It Is not at all impossible that If the
Reichstag, or some other Influence,
would get to work on this proposition
It might neutralise the efforts of the
Jtaiser to restore the popularity of this
medieval custom.
The dispute between the attorneys
over who was to represent Nebraska
before the supreme court in the bank
guaranty case almost resulted in set
ting the hearing of that case back for
a year. Even now the squabbling
lawyers decline to tell just how they
have arranged their compromise. This
edifying spectacle, it will be noted, is
furnished by the "reformers."
The Nebraska National Ouard gen
eral court-mart Is 1 has now pronounced
the doom of the culprits whose cases

again steady down on its gudgeon and

care in instructing the young men who
enter the guard in their duties would
serve the purpose far better than
court-martial punishment.
"I hawe no candidate to offer for

Celebrated Case Recalled.
Boston Transcript.
A full generation has panned since the
close of the "Beecher trial," one of the
most sensational cases that ever came be
fore a court of this country, causing
sharp alignments of opinions and sympa
thies in society and even In families. The
cause celebre is now recalled by the death
of Mrs. Frank D. Moulton, widow of the
"mutual friend." Her testimony, like that
of her husband, was anything but friendly
though it seemed to have but little effect
upon the verdict. The figures most prom
inent In that unfortunate case have
mostly passed away. Borne of the best
legal talent in the country was kn gaged by
each side. It was a battle of the giants of
the bar, and the testimony was a disclosure
of strange moods, temperament and re

The emphasis that Mrs. Kddy put upon
the material aspects of God originally
startled most Americans. But It was only
reralllng them to points of view con

chiefly to disease. Consequently, when
cures were wrought there followed among
her adherents a sort of passionate loyalty,

What will be Christian Science's future?
Will it die with ito founder? Was the be
lief In her own personal lmmortsllty the
rock upon which the church was built?
Probably not. A - religion that waa pro
jected by Ideas and grew strong by them
will continue through . them. Whether It
will not have a temporary check Is an
other matter. In this church the world
outside has a considerable Interest. The
old resentment has largely passed away.
Whatever I defeat and decay that church
experiences will come from within rather
than without. That danger is certainly
present. The world outside has rather a
feeling of sympathy so long as this church
benefits anyone In health and does not
bring misery upon others.

It may be said of Mrs. Eddy's work that
what Is true In It Is not original and what
la original Is not true. Such elementary
Ideas aa these axe In "Science and Health"
have been floating around the world In one
form or another since the dawn of time.
Mrs. Eddy herself had only a vague and
Indefinite comprehension of them, but
nevertheless she built a new church out of
them, drew Into It persons of culture,
education and property, and framed the
structure of a religion that Is one of the
unmistakable Influences of the century.
Regardlese of the merits or demerits of
Christian Science, It Is a social and psy
chological fact that long ago compelled
general recognition.

Mrs. Eddy has been called "clever" In
her methods of propsganda and organiza
tion. She waa far more than clever; she
was a genius. Her debt to Qulmby was
mucher greater than she In later yeara
would acknowledge; but conceding, as we
do, that she gained the germinal Idea of
mental suggestion as a therapeutic agent
from him. It was still Mrs. Eddy who had
the force, the tenacity, the faith even of
a prophet to organize the movement and
to crown It with that consummate stroke
of genius, the presentation of It to the
world aa a religion.
She was fortunate In that the times fa
vored her In Introducing the religious and
ecclesiastical elements. She could not have
accomplished what she did half a, century
earlier, because the assault of modern
science upon the churches had not yet de
vitalized the old theology, and by tts at
tack upon revealed religion had unsettled
many minds concerning the older form of
faith. It was this vast unsettling of the
masses, particularly in the Protestant
world, that made it comparatively easy to
attract suffering souls to a ew form of
faith that offered a refuge from pain and
disease, which emphasised the Joyous as
pects of life and which seemed almost to
cast out sin and death Itself.

We are aware that large numbers of
well-meaning, reasonably well-educated
and generally law-abiding persons are
members of the cult of Christian Science,
and we have no desire to do Injury to
their susceptibilities when we declare,
with the knowledge that the majority of
their fellow citizens will heartily agree
with us, that the triumph of this woman
and the cult she founded in defiance of
common sense, not to speak of practical
science, was an anachronism In an age
of enlightenment. Yet, because of that
prodigious success, and the great follow
ing she had secured, and the honor of
recognition she had received from at least
one government tthat of France), every
body must be aware of a certain feeling
akin to awe at the announcement of her
death In her ninetieth year. For forty
