Woman, naturally, has a keen
moral sense, keener, we are prone
to believe, than man. One of the
oldest arguments In favor of woman
suffrage was that this keener moral
sense would assert Itself at the bal
lot box In favor of civic righteous
ness. let1 certain elates in which
women have boen voting for years
are continuously held up to con
tumely for their Indlfferenco to the
highest tone of government for
their notoriously looae politics. But
the good women are not chargod with
making things thus, though they may

If women cannot agree on a place to

Another movement seems to have
been started toward colonizing
American negroes in Liberia. One
hundred or more families are about
to leave Oklahoma for that west
African republic as the vanguard of
a larger procession. 8poradto move
ments of tbla sort have been arising,
but have never amounted to any
thing, chiefly becauso the American
negro never failed to discover his
advantage by remaining In .the
United Slates. It la not at all likely,
therefore, that any heglra will set in
now aa the result of this little band's
Liberia waa settled by the Ameri
can Colonization campany as a proj
ect for cojonlzlng freemen and re
captured slaves. This was in 1811,
and In 1 & 22 this company sent out
from tbo United States 18,000 ne
groes, but what numbers have ever
gona since have been too Inconsider
able to amount to anything, eo slight
that in 1891. when Liberia had a
population of 1,068,000, only 18,000
of them were Afro-Americans. To
day the population la something
more than 9,000,000 In all with but
a sprinkling of American negroes.
Some of tha graduates of the
Booker T. Washington school have
gone over thece In recent years and
lent a helpful band tn mechanics,
agriculture and education, , particu
larly Intensive agriculture, and they
send or bring back glowing reports
of the promise and prospects. More
over, glowing reports from the gov.
ernmont of Liberia come of the influ

much In demand.

with a government patterned after
our own, with some excellent laws
and systems calculated to promote
Industry and thrift among the peo
ple. For Instance, while tha ballot
is free", no one may vote who does
not own real estate. As voting is
the ambition of every Llberlan, this
Is a direct incentive and Is eald to
have worked wonderful results. The
country has soma excellent soil, rich
and rertlle, capable of the highest
cultivation, and one of the chief
crops is coffee, the best of coffee
coming from that country. The cli
mate Is eald to be as hot as there
Is on the globe, January being the
hottest mouth. But with all the ad
vantages Liberia offers, it certainly
could have no lure for tho colored

Getting Out tad Putting In.
Everyone tries to get out of life
all he cau. It is human nature, and
the average man would resent the
thought of its beljig wrong. It Is
common for men to say, "Well, I be
lieve by making this change or that
ao I can get more out of life," or a
rond mother or father will tell you
that "I want my child to get out of
life all there Is in It."
There can be no wrong- in tbla.
provided we are as eager to put back
into life as much aa we take ont
Taking out. subtracting, la an
emptying, exhausting process. -Life
would become barren if everyone
tried to see how much hs conld take
out of It and how little he could put
Into It. So we need to be careful that
life does not give us more than we
return. When It does we become
the debtor and our existence. Instead
of being an asset to the world, be-
tomes a liability.
What else la meant by the old
proverb that "The world owes no
man a living?" Society's debt Is not
to. but from, the Individual. And
unless each person contributes all he
can, all his powers enable him to
contribute, he ia falling short of his
duty, for in tho nature of things all
men hare not equal capacities. One
may have the one talent, one the
Ave, one the ten, but the least that
any should do Is the most he can do.
OtherwUe, a deficit shows up which
can be met only by an extra effort

how can we get more out of life, our
second. Life by that process not
only becomes fuller and richer, but
less selfish and sordid and far more
worth the living.
Mr. Bryan In his Commoner Is be
laboring the president about "an un
enforced law" having special refer
ence to the criminal section of the
Sherman anti-trust law. It has been
a question whether convictions could
be procured under that law as con
strued by the courts on the evidence
available. But there are other un
enforced laws much nearer home.
Nebraska han had an anti-treat law
on its statnte books for over twenty
years without even a serious attempt
at enforcement Nebraska has also
an anti-trust law, with criminal pen
alties, which have never been meted
out. Nebraska has a stringent pri
mary law making it an offense to pro
cure a petition to place a candidate's
name on the ballot, and subsequently
fall to file It Such a petition was
procured last year to put Mr. Bryan's
name on the ticket as candidate for
United States senator, and then
thrown into the waste basket nnder
Mr. Bryan's direction. Yet no one
connected with the Commoner de
manded the enforcement of the law,
and no one else cared.
The "Sissy" Man.
Bishop K. R. Hendrix, In a church
council at Kansas City, asked why
the church was not reaching mora
men. "Is it because we are adapting
our work more to the women?" he
Another prominent clergyman,
Rev. 8. M. Neel, D. D., opined that
was somewhere near the reason. "We
want no more sissy men In tha pul
pit," he declared. A "sissy" man, la
this definition, Is one who adapts his
preaching and bis teaching and his
general conduct of parish affairs
more to the women bless them -than
to the men.
Dr. Neel Is heartily applauded by
a large number of his pulpit brethren
and the spirit of tho times In the
church, as manifested tn suet enter
prises as the "Men and Religion
Forward Movement," Beems to em
phasize what bo says tbo call and
need for the strong, virile man In the
pulpit who appeals to the man tn the
pew and in the street, for making the
gospel a man's appeal, not, of course,
depreciating tho Indispensable value
of the women.
That Is all very well, but where,
may we ask, is the typically "sissy"
man wanted? What calling; or busi
ness needs him? Business and other
professions besides tha mlnleUry can
use him no better than can the
The democrats' loss of the gov
ernorship of Maryland is one of the
very significant results of this year's
election. It is only the second time
since the civil war that they have
lost this office. They were unable
to gain It this year even with all the
powerful prestige of organization
and tenure and tha Gorman Influ
ence behind a scion of the Gorman
house. Those who have been predict
ing republican defeat, ought to find
In the Maryland election a good deal
to ponder over.
The newly elected congressman
from tha Third district promises to
make public "a true statement" of
every cent ho spent In his campaign.
That Is what the law requires, so the
inference is that statements hereto
fore made have not been true state
ments. Just out of , curiosity, the
people would like to have a true
statement of every eent spent In the
three preceding campaigns, which he
conducted for other democratic

and their return early and often Is
desired. It affords Just as much
gratification to Omaha to have a bla
convention held here pronounced an
unqualified success as it does to the
responsible officers of the organiza
tion in charge, and If meeting in
Omaha helps to success, thst fact
should bo recognized.
Some of the voting machines will
have to be opened to make sure
whether the park bonds received the
necessary majority In the recent elec
tion. Mighty few people, until re
minded, knew that' park bonds were
to be voted on at all. The Park
board should have followed thj -ex
ample of the Water board and bought
a few half pages of display advertis
ing. Governor Harmon says the elec
tion returns Indicate a democratic
landslide. Tell Arthur Pue Gorman
that, or the Honorable Murphy of
Tammany hall, or Dr. Woodrow Wil
son, or even Governor Foes, whose
majority In Massachusetts was cut
Just 14.000. Of course. Governor
Harmon cannot be prevented from
saying that, but the facts stand out,
Just as if he had not spoken.

OMAHA. Nov. 10. To th Editor 0
The Bee DcAr Sir: When the Fremont
Herald published an article condemning
th Omaha Land Show, I think very
little attention waa paid to the criticism;
there Was a reason for thla r.rlilrlam. and
that Is why little or no attention was
via to it; put when a resident of Omaha
approve of th sentiment expressed In
this article, that reason Is not apparent;
and I do not mean by that that simply
becaus a man Uvea In Omaha, ha ahnuld
endorse the Omaha Land Show.
I most heartily endorse th Omaha
Land Show and horo It m htram. n
annual exhibit of tha m-nriuna r N.

a selfish Interest. I am selling Nebraska
m no. I want Nebraska advertised In
practical Way. and I know of no better
way man by bringing to Omaha th
products Of th soil of Nehraaka. where
thop residing tn Omaha and other parts
of th country may se what Nebraska
land la producing. Nebraska needs
advertising to Omaha, aa well aa In New
York, and Nebraska need, not hesitate to
exhibit alongside ot any other western
state or, fot that matter, any state in th
united Htatea. No advertising Is as ef
fective as that of Bhawlnff actual rxnli,.
and when Nebraska r.akea tin aiul

opportunity to advertise Its products
more need not be any further criticism
about th Omaha Land Bhow.
