With Joseph Pulitzer has pushed
one of the giants of American Jour
nalism. Historians will place him
In the very front rank of the brillsnt
galaxy of men who have mad" the
newspaper what It Is today in (hi
country. He has Impressed hla per
sonality on the type of modern Jour-
nailsm as has no other one person
and his Influence upon its future Is
sure to be potent and lasting.
As usual In the capo of truly great
men, thTe are npparcnt paradoxes In
Mr. Pulitzer's life work. Acclaimed
as the originator and sponsor ot so
called "yellow Journalism," his
newspapers today are counted among
the Ftrong factors for stability and
steady progress. Starting out as a
republican, the protegn of Carl
Schurz, ho Joined the democratic
forces behind Tllden and later be
came one of Cleveland's jnost active
supporters, but refused to accept, the
nomination of Bryan and stood out

In many points, the career of Jo
seph Pulitzer of the World closely
resembles that of Kdward Rosewater,
founder and during his lifetime edi
tor of The Bee. Both came to this
country from Kurope ns poor boys
nnd were thrown upon their own
resources. Both volunteered in the
service of their adopted country for
liberty and against disunion. Both
were of Jewish pnrentage und both
built up grenl newspapers after la
borious efforts to gain a foothold.
Both achieved success In Journalism
In an acquired language and also re
tained the same facility In their na
tive tongues. After his triumph In
Kt. Louis Mr. Pulitzer launched Into
the limitless newspaper field at New
York, while Mr. Itosewator, despite
tempting orfers, atald to his death
with Omaha to which ho was rooted
and with The Bee to which he was
Inseparably devoted. Both died nt
approximately the samo age with- a
monumental life work completed.
Bringing Hussia to Time.
An aroused public conscience calls
upon the United States government
td denounce and abrogate the Husso
Amerlcan treaty of 1832 or finally
compel Russia to observe It, as this
country Iisb always done. Senator
Penrose has declared that soon after
congress convenes In December he
win take up the matter with the
president and secretary of state and
urge Immediate action. Congress
Suiter, chairman of the house com
mittee on foreign affairs, went so far
as to Introduce a bill at the last ses
sion to terminate the treaty.
Under this treaty the United Slates
and Itussia agree to admit without
discrimination the citizens of each
country having passports. The
United States has invariably com
plied with these terms, while Russia
has never done so with respect to
American citizens who- happened to
be Jews. No matter how eminently
respectable, or how conspicuous, the
traveler, If a Jew, is denied the
rights this treaty vouchsafed to him
and enjoyed by every other American
citizen. Our inaction has been de
fended on the ground that It Is bet
ter to retain certain other advantages
this treaty gave than to abrogate It
on this one account. This argument
no longer sounds tenable.
A great mass meeting Is to be held
in Washington soon to give expres
sion to America's' determined feeling
upou this Important matter and pro
cure definite and decisive action by
our government this winter. We owe
nothing to Russia and ueed not toler
ate Insults at Its hauds. We owe
everything to our own citizens and
we cannot afford to permit any for
eign nation to discriminate agulnst
Checking Danger of Tire.
New York now has a law that
glvea the fire commissioner of New
York City authority to close up fac
tories In which imminent peril of
fire exists, so that the commissioner
becomes responsiblelfor bad condi

This law, which is the outcome of
the Triangle Shirtwaist factory fire,
iu .w hich so many working girls lost
their lives, may appear at first
glance as stringent, but as a mutter
of fact, the New York authorities
regard it ns but the beginning of
rcBtrlctlxe legislation. Governor
Dlx, hltusuif, in signing the bill,
stated that, while it was good so far
as it went. It did not go far enough
and that ho will demand still larger
powers reposed In the fire Inspec
tors. Nebraska's law enables the state
labor commissioner to ordr places

where they are not complying with
the laws governing fire link, but be
Is given uo such latitude aa the New
York fire commissioner enjoys. Ot
cuurtc, the need of such a law is
row here near as urgent In a state
like Nebraska or a city like Omaha
as iu Nuw York, yet there is room
and reason for much Improvement
and strengthening of our fire pro
tection measures. At the very bot
tom of all must He the very best
building laws aud, what Is more,
their rigid enforcement.
Leglslatlou like this in New York,
r hpetUll as backed by the public
officials, Is another unerring indica
tion of our growing concern for
those unable to protect themselves.
Fire protection laws loglcslly and
properly follow sanitary legislation

toiler, man nnd woman, and this
ought to make for a better feeling

Money Value of Smcke.
Cincinnati, one of the cities
wrestling with the smoke nuisance
or problem, has a smoke Inspector
who states that the smoke that es
capes from the stacks tlroughout
(he country In one year Is worth
$1,100,000,000. In other words,
that much gns or fuel waste goes out
through the Industrial chimneys of
the country every year. In Cleve
land the smoke committee of the
Chamber of Commerce recently re
ported that the direct financial loss
from smoke waste every year In that
city amounted to $12 per oaplta of
Its population. If not twice that
amount. The report went on to show
what. If this wante was avoided, it
would mean in the matter, for In
stance, of taxation.
These figures are very large and
possibly more or less speculative,
nevertheless they go to show whnt

tories nnd other big buildings al
ready have In URe some sort of smoke
consumers. Cities, on the other
hand, have their nmoUe ordinances,
yet the smoke nuisance or problem,
as the viewpoint may be, continues
unabated, and for two reasons,
chiefly, first, the smoke consumers
that have been devised are not ef
fectual and, second, this Is another
one of those problems not susceptible
to solution by city ordinance or leg
islative statute. When It Is solved it
will be because of the economic
No one, who has given the mat
ter any thought doubts that tre
mendous waste goes out Iu smoke
and with our keen economic
sense the wbnder is that somebody
has not. overcome It by a definite
method long ago. If the waste is
whnjj this Cincinnati expert estimates
It to be. there is one ot tho first
places for us to begin the work of
economic reform. Dr. Tesla says that
the gases given off annually by the
great steel plants, if harnessed,
would produce from 23,000, 000 to
60,000,000 horsepower, worth, about
$450,000,000. These authorities nre
serious and reliable enough to force
this matter upon the attention of
business men. Not only financial
savings might be effected, but sani
tary Improvement could be accom
plished as well. The benefits would
be felt by everybody, no matter
whether he had to do with a largo In
dustrial plant or not.
Down In Plattsmouth, K. O. May
field, who has taken over the News
Herald of that town, devotes a col
umn to telling "What I Crow For,"
and among other things "I am crow
ing for people who do not go to
Omaha to trade." It'a a good slo
gan, but It won't stop Tlattsmouth
people from trading in Omaha any
more than would The Bee's buzzing
ttop Omaha people from trading in
Chicago when they think It is to
their advantage to do so. It is for
u to convince home folks that It Is
not to their advantage to' go else
whero to trade and to persuade
people outside that It is to their ad
vantage to come here. Lot tho uood
work go on.

ferry-boats have lost their useful ness in
the passenger-carrying traffic. The dis
posal or these craft, many of which me
very valuable, is a serious problem. They
are not worn out and their machinery Is
