Blunder or BlunderbusT With the sole view to manufartur Ing political capital, the democratic World-Herald has been playing tip sn artie'e from a Catholic weekly asking who blundered In accepting the In vitation of the. Young Men's Christian association to have the Sunday afternoon meeting which President Taft was to have addressed on "World Peace" under their auspices. In inviting the clergy to participate In the reception to the president, no discriminations had been made, but this Catholic paper declared that it was Impossible for any priest to ac cept and thus give countensnce to any organization, however unde nominational, whose management Is reserved for members of Protestant Evangelical churches. If there was any blunder, we think the World-Herald should be sble to snswer the question as well as any one else because its head and front and chief proprietor, 6enator Gilbert M. Hitchcock, waa a member of the local committee on arrangements, and had full voice with other mem bers in scceptlng the Young Men's Christian association's offer, yet never for a moment gave utterance to any thought of Impropriety. It may have been the duty of Catholic clergy men to abstain fru i participation, al though the invitation extended to serve on the reception committee In cluded more than the Sunday after noon meeting. At that, however, all they had to do waa what most of them did do. namely, to send courte ous regrets. The blunder, If there wss any, It strikes us. waa twofold first. In the Catholic organ using" the presidents visit as a vent for its snl moslty toward the Young Men's Christian association, and, second, In Senator Hltcheock'a World-Herald at tempting to prevent the Catholic pa per's deliverance to the creation of political blaa and rellgloua prejudice. we may all be thankful that the president is bigger and broader than all these critics. Although aa a Uni tarian he would himself be barred from active direction In them, he has seen no resson why he should not. upon proper occasions, work with and accept the good offices of the Young Men's Christian association, or the Knights of Columbus, or the Chris tian Endeavor, or any and every re ligious and patriotic, society, which Is serving as a factor for the betterment of our social and moral conditions. Alfred Tennyson Dickens. The eldest surviving son of Chsrles Dickens, Alfred Tennyson Dickens, has come clear from Australia to vialt the United States. He Is assured a most cordial welcome. Hla name comblnea the memory of two men very popular In thla country, and the fact that his Illustrious father, on his visit to us In 1842, had very little but caustic criticism to pass upon Amer ica and Americans, will not at all af fect hla hearty reception. It has never affected the sale of his fatber'a great worka, nor marred his memory In this land, where he found ao much to offend his notions of refinement and culture more than slxtv vom sgo. Americans are very broad In their vlewa; so broad that they rather enjoy fair criticism, wen though se vere, such aa most of them have come to bellev Dickens' waa in the main. Now, they will, no doubt, be in ter. ested to know what the son will think or us and how his criticisms today will compare with those of his father ao many years ago. Of courae. some of the things the elder Dickens com plained of slavery, for one are not here to offend the aenslbllltles of tha son and In most waya Americans hope tney nave improved. We have got ao thoroughly accustomed, however, to British criticism thst we shall really feel disappointed if the younger Dlckena doea not have some advice to offer us. It would be most dls coursglng, moreover, to think that we have not profited to aome extent In all these yeara by the ceaseless curtain lectures from our fathers over the sea. To what purport could all their chiding have been but to impress us? Competition in Dishonesty. Is a business msn Justified in re sorting to shady methoda because hia competitor does and because If he, himself, did not he would lose trade? Such a question will strike nine out of every ten persons ss too Idle to ask, yet down deep under the skin of virtuous pretense a good many know very well that the question is not Idle when It cornea to having a tangible basis. The lamentable fact la that a good many men try to fool themselves Into believing that there ia such a thing as competition in honesty or dishonesty; that they are Justified In selling fourteen ounces for a pound, or three and three-fourths quarts for a gallon, or putting a double bottom In a bushel measure because some of their com petitors are doing thst thleg. Of course, the whole argument resta on a false premise, when It Is reared on one like that. The same holds true in politics, aa well aa business. Honesty Is honesty, and method of dealing will not change It. We have heard much of the "square deal." The square deal cannot be made with round corners. Competi tion, or what one's rlvsl msy do, Is not the gauge of action for one's self, at all. Four pecka ahould be given for a bushel because nothing under four pecka will make a bushel, and the business man ahould be honest for honesty's sake because nothing abort of that will stand the testi Integrity that depends on environment or clr cumstancpg la not Integrity; it Is doing rlsht. under protest. One of the surest ways to purge business of dishonesty and Inspire confidence In trade Is for the msn who Is raising this untenable ques tion In his mind to stop csrlng what his competitor does snd be honest for principle's sake. The Small Farm. The Missouri Rural Life conference protests sgalnst whst It calls a farm octopus, the extension of Individual ownership of land, which It believes has militated against the back-to-the-farm movement and the Intensive ag riculture enterprise, as, of course, It naturally would, snd operated to reduce the number of farms In the state. This condition thus complained of Is not entirely local to Missouri. It exists In Iowa, to some extent, In Ne braska and most western states. That Is, the average size of farms or ranches Is Increasing aa a result of the land-owning fever. This move ment which has reached such a mo mentum In the last few years has been mistaken for a movement back toward the farm often when it is really Just the opposite. When a man buys vsst tracta of land for whose cultivation he must employ an army of workers, he Is really obstructing the movement which has for Its dual purpose the Increase of acreage production and the peopling of farm ing communities. Usually this pur pose can be subserved by the small farm better than by the large ranch. And the very essence of the back-to-the-farm movement Is for one fam ily to own only what land It can till. The tendency then Is to populate the country and raise the standard of soil cultivation. In newer states like Ne braska it will naturally be many years before the big ranches are cut up into small farms. We are probably making aa favorable headway aa we need to, but down In Missouri, a much older state. It is not at all en couraging to find old settlers selling out their well-tilled, fertile farms to "land barons" and passing on to newer states, where cheaper land enables them to increase their hold ings, aa the men who bought them out are doing In Missouri. This, we say, is especially discouraging, since Missouri haa exerted such great en ergy in promoting the campaign of Intenaive agriculture as a means of Instilling new life Into the state and turning the tide of population, w hich the last census showed to b ebbing. But the task Is a difficult one. The man who haa a farm haa a right to sell It and probably will sell it when he gets his price, Just as the man with the price baa a right to buy all the land he can and will if he flndu that he can make money by ao doing. It ia largely a matter of education, after all. along lines of profitable cultivation. No one will dispute that the authorship of that letter is Governor Aldrlch's very own. And, still, read ing it over carefully, It opens the gate to a broad, smooth roadway by which the governor and the president msy both run for re-election upon the same ticket In Nebraska, heartily supporting one another. Now, then, Joe Brown will try to come back. Joe Brown? Why he is the man Georgia haa for governor when It docs not have Hoke Smith. Brown and Smith are beada and tails of Qe-awgy politics.

Neb . Sept. 35. To the Editor of The Bee: As the east bound train on the Chicago & Northwestern railway pulled out of Omaha a week or two ago quits a number of young boys, ap parently 14 to 18 years old, bade their parents goodbye and got aboard the Pullman. Shortly after the train started that peculiar odor nothing else In the world like it of opium, tobacco and wrapping paper filled the air. Going forward we discovered the boys In pos session of the toilet room, which they had filled so full of cigarette smoke that It was ImpOHslble for anyone not used to the dope to stay long enough to wash. The writer has been In a w.nese opium den. where men and women were lying around hitting the pipe, and the atmos phere was none too good there, but It was a pleasant dream compared to the odor that tilled that smoke room. One poor boy found the pills too strong for him, but to show he was no "piker," swore good and plenty. The churches don't need to send missionaries to China; they have a broad field on the Pullman cars about the time school begins, and you.

Neb., Oct. 2. -To the Editor of The Bee: The next day after ths late democratic congressional con vention at Norfolk, In the Interest of truth and justice, I sent a short com munication to the World-Herald, but, in the Interest of "harmony." I suppose, the World-Herald suppressed It. 1 wrote as follows: "It ts quite true ss stated In your ape. clal dispatch from Norfolk giving an ac count of the proceedings ot the demo cratic congressional convention, that the report of the committee on resolutions contained a compliment for Mr. Bryan and that his name 'was enthusiastically cheered.' But It Is also true, and a very significant fact, that that cheering came from not mors than one-fourth of the delegates there present, tha great body of them sluing in silence and making no sign. Two years ago teat applause would have come, hearty anl prolonged, from the throat of every democrat present." I, too, am tn favor of harmony. But I am not In favor off harmony that has to be manufactured to. order and bolstered up by misrepresentation and a suppres sion of the truth. I am quite willing that Mr. Bryan should hive the full benefit of all the cheers he tan get. But I am not willing that 1 and representative dem ocrats from every cotinty In the Third district should be represented as cheering for Mr. Bryan when we did nothing of the sort. If the Worlrf-Herald had com plimented us on our forbearance and self control in not emitting enthusiastic groans at the mention of Mr. Bryan's name It would have done much better than to suppress a plain statement of fact. CHARLES WOOSTER. Sooth Omaha Parks. SOUTH OMAHA. Neb., Sept. 30 To the Editor of The Bee: It is with a great deal of pleasure that I no tice that the Seed of annexation sown by a few of us in South Omaha one year ago has gTown so tremendously that it Is smothering out all opposition to It. It is time ths people of South Omaha should wake up and take notice. It aeems to me that, being a part ot a metropolitan city, we have very little to lose and a great deal to gain. If things are not run as the angels might In Omaha, yet they are not any worse than In South Omaha and by consolida tion of ths two cities we will only have one set of officials to "cuss." I think ons of the great mistakes made In South Omaha ha been In so much useless waste of public money In buy ing parks. The-e Is no sene In buying a new piece of ground every time a few people In a certain section of the city want the park board to buy them. It would have been better If ths city had bought Syndicate park alone and fixed It up In fins shape and made it one of the finest parks in ths United States, rather than buy a strip of land hers and there all over ths city and not fix up any of them. People from other states ' have said that Syndlcats park Is ons of ths finest natural parks in ths country and It oould be made extremely fine If ths city only owned that park alone and had fixed It up as it ought to be and not waste so much money for other parks that are never fixed up and never will be. If ws ars consolidated with Omaha I think the beat thing that can be dons for us ths first thing will be for the greater city to sell all of ths parks except Highland and Syndicate and fix up Syndicate park In the manner that It ought to be fixed. 1 except Highland for the reason that It has already been fixed up and not because of its location.
