Future of the Auditorium.
The management of the Auditor
ium, erected by the people of Omaha
ss a convention hall, publicly admits
that It Is face to face with the ne
cessity of determining what the fu
ture of that building Is to be.
Without revamping the costly
blunders of the construction era,
and without discussing whether a
different policy since completion
would have produced better results,
the real question Is whether the Au
ditorium shell be retained as an
available meeting place for largo
public gatherings and exhlbitiona of
educational or popular character, or
shall pass Into private hands to be
converted ultimately to uses of
The editor of The Bee many years
ago foresaw the unescapable ap
proach of this situation, and to pro
vide against it procured the enact
ment of a charter amendment spon
sored by Representative Michael Lee
authorizing the city to Issue bonds
and buy In the Auditorium when
ever It should go to sale. Should it
be decided, therefore, that the Au
ditorium ought to become a public
building, maintained for public use
at public expense, the city will be
legally In position to take it over If
it can be had at a fair price.
The Bee takes It that the argu
ment Is all one way In favor of keep
ing the Auditorium for rise as a con
vention hall. The same reasons that
impelled our people to respond so
liberally In the first place to the call
for subsucrlptlons and contributions
to build It, are equally urgent how.
No city the sire of Omaha that
assumes to entertain great national
societies and associations Is without
such a building for their accommo
dation. The convention hall project
In many cities has been a municipal
undertaking from the beginning. If
acquisition of Omaha's Auditorium
by the city Is forced upon us, It will
probably prove a blessing In disguise.
The Switch on Voting; Machines.
The taxpayers of Omaha and Doug
las county ought to be getting their
eyes open to the grfroe of politics
which the democratic combine la the
county board has been playing. On
motion of the democratic member
defeated for re-election the county
board baa just gone on record to
abolish the use of the rotlng ma
chine, something against which these
very same democrats protested stren
uously only a year ago when repub
licans sought to have a paper ballot
used because the capacity of the
machines had been overtaxed. At
tbat time these same democratic
county commissioners not only in
listed on using , the machines, but
voted to go inte the treaamy for up
wards of 15,000 with which' addi
tional voting machines were bought
to supply the' new voting districts
All the time this was going on the
local democratic organ was likewise
raising a hubbub and din about a
pretended great "republican con
spiracy" to mulct the taxpayers by
throwing 150,000 worth of Toting
machines Into the Junk heap.
It goes without saying that our
democratic friends are fooling no one
Who does not want to be fooled. The
reason they wanted the voting ma
chines retained a year ago waa In
order to get the benefit of the
straight party lever, which they knew
would be pulled for the benefit of
Mayor Dahlroau's candidacy for gov.
ernor. To have ditched the voting
machine laat year, when the party
lever meant a straight democratic
ticket, would have been a terrible
crime, but this year when the party
lever advantage went to the repub
licans, the democrats Invent an ex
cuse for getting rid of the voting
machines on the ground that they
register Inaccurately. Of course, the
machines registered this year Just as
accurately or Inaccurately as they
did last year, but they registered re
publican this year instead of demo
cratic, as they did a year ago. That
explains the sudden somersault of
the democratic glooms on the voting
The Drink and Opium Becords.
The report of the commissioner of
Internal revenue fails to support the
belief that this country is decreasing
its use of alcoholic drinks. The total
Internal revenue receipts for the year
were 1322, 518,299. the greatest In
the history of the country. Some
7,000,000 gallons more distilled
liquor waa manufactured than ever
before. All along the line similar In
creases are recorded.
In the face of the activity in re
strictive legislation this showing can
not furnish reassurance for the hope
that the American people are getting
way from their Indulgeuce In intox
icants. Yet some other recent sta
tistics showed that, while our
aggregate consumption of beer waa
increasing, cot so our per capita
consumption, but whether thla la
also true of spirit liquor drinking Is
But another and more distressing
feature of this statistical report is
that it reveals a widespread use of
opium In this country. This Is one
of the most degrading forms of In
temperance. It has been borrowed
from the lower element of Chinese
and under the spur of American In
fluem-e, China has been aroused to
the awful consequences of the habit
and la now carrying on an ant!
opium warfare. Our prattlce In this
country has, of course, not yet as
sumed like proportions as In China,
but It Is extensive, enough o put
Americans on their guard. It calls
for a more Intelligent resistance than
has yet been offered to It.
Safe and Sane Foot Ball.
. Only nine foot ball players killed
this season only. Some forty-ceven
others were Injured.
Many foot ball devotees "point
with pride," aa the politicians say,
to this record, forgetting, perhaps,
that it Is an average of about two
fatalities a week. The 'foot ball
season Is very short, about a month
of actual playing. This record, then,
while it la an Improvement over
previous years, still offers nothing
to boast about.
There should not be nine deaths
on the foot ball field In one season.
There would not be It the rules of
the game were safe and sane, If
they were whst they should be. Foot
ball men need not fly off Into a
tirade for being reminded of this;
they must not blame fathers and
mothers for shuddering with anxiety
every time they see their sons go
into a game. Nor must they try to
consider the casualty list a closed
merely with the dead. It counts a
little to have another, list of forty
seven Injured. How many of these
may die? Four of the 1910 Injured
have Just recently died. These are
referred to In the reports as "bold
overs." How many 111 hold overs
will show up In the death rolls xf
1912? How many of these forty-
seven will be crippled or Injured for
A great many people not ordinarily
classed aa mollycoddles are of the
oplplon that foot ball may be made
it whole lot safer without losing any
of Its sporting qualities. At least
another effort should be made.
The Dividing Line of Unionism.
The Atlanta convention of the
American Federation of Labor haa
served to mark a widening breach
between tho socialist and anti-socialist
elements In organized laboi
and to make certain an ultimate
divorcement of relations. Through
out this convention a division of
spirit and action has been apparent.
The socialists tried to force Gompers
and others to retire from either the
National Civic Federation or the
American Federation of Labor, as
the socialists in control of tha Mine
Workers' union had done with John
Mitchell, but the conservatives de
feated them. The socialists at At
lanta tried to have the federation ap
propriate money out of the federa
tion' treasury to defend the Mc
Namaras, but the conservatives pre
vented that. The miners, In the
Western Federation and the Mine
Workers union threaten to withdraw
from the national body of union la
bor. The Western Federation has
not affiliated with the national or
ganization for many years, and both
miners' associations have steadily
gone toward socialism and are laid
to be now dominated by It.
If this divorcement is to come
about, the conservative forces of
unionism have nothing to gain from
concessions to the socialists. Many
level-beaded union men are ready to
believe that such a separation cot
only Is desirable, but la actually
necessary to save organized labor.
Perhaps socialism, Itself, might be
better oft outside of these ranks.
Sooner or later such a division, it
seems, will come, and this Atlanta
convention evidently has done much
to draw the line of cleavage.
Only a year ago Senator Hitch
cock's democratle organ was tearing
Its hair and shrieking with all Us
lungs over an alleged republican
conspiracy to throw $50,000 worth
pf voting machines into the junk
pile. Now, lo and behold, a demo
cratic county board Is undertaking
to put the very same voting machines
out of commission. What a chance
for the rescue act by the former
faithful guardian of the chee-lld.

she reposed on that thar lounge. If that
wus all he done what did she want to

OMAHA. Nov. 27. To the Editor of The
Bee: Henry Clay Beat tie, jr., committed
a terrible crime,' and every sane man and
woman ahuddera at the thought of com
mitting auch an act But the crime of
Henry Clay Beat tie, jr., dwindles into
Insignificance bealde the more atrocious
crime oommltted by a nation and sanc
tioned by the cttlsens of that nation.
I refer to the electrocution of Henry
Clay Beattle, jr.
Henry Clay Beattle, jr., waa a moral
pervert, a morej Imbecile, we may aay,
If the history that has come to light of
his life and hie habits Is correct. Look
In any large Institution for feeble-minded
children and you will find the same moral
type in abundance. We protect the Other
cases from them and ws protect the
publio from them by keeping them under
the care of competent guardians. We do
not electrocute them.
For Henry Clay Beattle, jr., there Is
the excuse of a perverted and degenerate
mind. Must we advance tbe aame excuse
for a nation when it commits the same
From among all the lawa, just and un
just, of a great nation, capital punish
ment stands out aa the deepest stain, a
relic of barbarism. In the past it has
been claimed for capital punishment that
It tended to lessen the crime of private
murder through the fear of death which
thf example thua afforded Instilled "Into
the mtnda of partlee who ahould contem
plate Jhe crime. Thla we know to be an
erroneous hypothesis and it Is no longer
claimed by even the moat enthusiastic
advocates of capital punishment. A mur
derer commits the crime In cne of three
mental attltudea: In the first he la actu
ated by the Impulse of the moment, anger.
jealousy, or whatever It may be, and haa
no time for the weighing -of oonsequencea
to himself, or for the consideration of
penalties which he may Inour as a result
of bis action. In the second he meditates
tha crime for money greed, revenge, jeal
ousy or any one of the numerous causea
for which such crimes are perpetrated.
But In all hla premeditation the thought
that he will poaaibly have to pay the
death penalty for hla act never enters
Into consideration. His belief that ha
will escape, any penalty, or at least the
death penalty. Is absolute from the ftrat.
That Idea being firmly fixed In hla mind
It cancels absolutely any Influence that
might be expected to be exerted by laws
for capital punishment. Third, and laat,
there Is a class who are willing to give
up their lives If necessary If first they
can have accomplished the death of the
proposed victim the cauae of their real
or fancied wrongs. AH three types are
unquestionably but types of Insanity, but
whether they are or are not does not
concern us here, except to emphasise the
brutality of capital punishment. The
faot. however, re mams that in no one
of the three la the queatlon of possible
or probable capital punishment a factor
of any weight whataoever agalnat th
consummation of tha crime. In the last
type cited it Is even possible that tbe
murderer sees a justification - for his
erlme In the fact that he Is willing and
will probably have to pay the penalty by
forfeit of his own life,
tone other claim la advanced for cap
ital punishment. Thla la to tha effect
that the people would be at an added
expense by taxation for support and
maintenance of institutions were cap
ital punishment abolished. In illustra
tion: A murder la committed by some
Individual as a result of his lnaane
gresd tor money, for a few dollars or a
tew hundred dollars; then tbe capital
punishment advocate sanctions a sec
ond murder the murder of the first of
fender tor the aama cause that brought
about the first murder, with only the
exception that the money for which
the second murder Is committed Is of
smaller amount, being for a few mills
of a cent, or a few cents, or rarely, a
few hundred rents. But tbe second
murder Is laudable, and the ftrat remains
a "horrible crime."
Before the days of correct a sepals
and antisepsis surgeons spoke of
"laudable pus." Today the term Is ob
solete except as used to a reference) to
the past. By the efforts of the sclentlfle
members of the profession It haa been
demonstrated that there is no such thing
as "laudable pus." Likewise when mod
ern peoples have thrown off the re-
manenta of barbarism It will be re
cognised that there can be no such
thing as laudable murder and capital
punishment will be a thing of the past.
The responsibility for the death Is
easily shlited to the "government?" but
the shame, In that a severnmeot of a
supposedly civilised people Is allowed
to continue with lsws that countenance
such barbarity, rn'ist rest upon the
shoulders of the people
