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
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.

Harmony vrlth Bis H.
SILVER CREEK. 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
"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

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.
