Every citizen of Omaha ahould be
made to realise that in changing to

Will the experiment paa out? The
answer to that question must await
results, but certain prerequisites are
essential to success.
The first duty devolves upon tbe
citlxens tbemselves to choose with
sound Judgment those who are to ad
ioUtcjrtthe government under tbe
nv jlaw. The best selections may
prove a disappointment, but still that
chance will not warrant the assump
tion of unnecessary risk by awarding
tbe responsible positions of commis-
aioner to Incompetenta or disreputa
bles, or aa sinecures or pensions for
misfits usable to make a living other

tion of the commission plan of city
gdterameat was the uaiversal desire
for a more efficient management of
our municipal affairs, and for a
cleaner municipal housekeeping.
There was ao Idea of merely enlarg
ing, the powers of existing officers.

K A Stlnaiot of. the West
In a current tnagaxlne article Prof.
Edward .A. Ross calls attention to
what he dominates a "delusion of the
west,' consisting of tbe wholly
Imaginary - belief , that tbe west,
or rather, middle-west. Is grow
ing much faster tbaa the . east
Analysis of the census figures falls
to bear out this assumption, which
Prof. Ross ascribes la origin to tha
fact that tha center'ot population baa
moved steadily westward since the
beginning of the republic along with
tbe settlement of previously unoccu
pied territory. But this movement,
he tells us, baa covered a distance In
tbe last two decades hardly worth
measuring, with the fair prospect
tbst tbe neat census will disclose that
It Is aow actually receding.
Accepting this Idea of taster
growth In population' to be a detusloa
pf tha west, not much harm can en
sue as long as there la steady growth,
though the eut may be populating

The Proposed Liaoola Memorial
Having made aa appropriation of
2,000,000 under the spell of the
Lincoln centenary for a memorial to
the martyred president, congress Is
confronted with the necessity of de
ciding the form which tie memorial
ahall take. Two projects are being
nrged, one for the construction and
maintenance of a national highway
from Washington to Gettysburg as a
sort of automobile boulevard from
capital to battleBeld, aad tbe other
an art monument aa part of the
architectural setting of the mall la
Washington connecting . tbe capital
aad tbe Washington monument,
eventually to be flanked with public
buildings la the parkway.' Tbe pro
posed monument baa the backing and
approval of the American Society of
Architects and tbe Find Arte council,
mad of leading painter, sculp
tors, archltacta and landscape de
signers, aa well as of the Commission
of Fme Arts, which is aa advisory
official body.' - ;s i

No other agency or collection of
agencies is as effective In meting out
punishment aad as a deterrent aa the
activities of tbe Postofoce department
In prosecuting fraudulent use of tbe
malls. The' report of the bureau Is
charge of this branch of the postal
business gives an estimate of $7 .-
eoe.004 as the sum filched from gul
lible people by various swindling de
vices In the last five- yea re. This
sum embraces only the concerns ac
tually caught la tbe act of using the
mails to defraud and takes no ac
count o aa 'equally large multitude
of swindlers who carefully avoid tbe
mall routes la search of victims.
The magnitude of tbe awlndllog
business and the undiminished crop
of victims emphsslzes a pertinent
feature of the bureau report. Tbe
postal authorities have no means' of
checkmating a swindling game at the
start In most instances a swindling
game proceeds unmolested for years,
owing to the reluctance of victims to
appear aa romplalnanta and admit
their gullibility. I lance tbe swin
dlers obtain vast sums before the
postal authorities obtain sufficient
evidence to warrant arrest and seiz
ure. No method Is suggested, for ob
viating this difficulty. Apparently
initial action. If taken at all, must be
taken by state aad local authorities.
Two laws In force In Kansas and
Nebraska afford effective means of
checking locally the most frequent
schemes of deception In this country.
In ths former state no one If per
mitted to sell any variety of corpora
tion shares, bonda or certificates
without first obtaining a certificate
of authority from the state banking
department, based on a showing of
tne honesty and solvency of the con
cern Issuing the psper. The Ne
braska law la loss sweeping, being
restricted to corporations or associa
tions Issuing Installment Investment
securities. The Kansaa law la a re
cent enactment, that of Nebraska
waa passed In 190 J. Both are effi
cient Instruments for officials eager
to safeguard the unsophisticated and
punish the crooked. -
Unfortunately, th swindling game

scop of Its operations the greater Is
Its success. As a measure of per
sonal safety and comfort th shrewd
msnagera seek victims aa fan from

reaching tha source of tbe evil, and
the country's chief dependence must

"America owes its position among tite
nations to its system of free educa
tion." Of course, that does not imply
a perfect method or argue against

Problem of the Theater.
Managers of the theaters are just
aow giving closest consideration to
the problem of reviving Interest In
their undertakings. Profits are no
longer- available, and la many re
gards the buamesa of tbe stage lan
guishes.', Vp to dste so many causes
have been ascribed that the student
is bewildered as to which la the most
it is admitted that the cupidity of
tbe managers themselves has been
responsible In a greater degree thaa
any of the other causes for tbe con
dition. When a very few years ago
tbe theater was at the very top wave
of opulent prosperity, a general
scramble for a share of the immense
profits that were accruing to the
owner and managers resulted la the
building of a large number of thea
ters, the raising of the rentals on
others and a general increase la the
cost of operating. This naturally re
sulted In a comnotitloa for ths serv
ices of actors whose popularity might
draw the dollars from the public. All
of this had the Inevitable effoct of In
creasing the cost of operation.
Then tbe public began to find Its
amusement elsewhere. Moving pic
ture shows ,hav denuded tbe galler
ies of the blgh-priced houses; other
forms of diversion har lessened th
attendancs of those who. bad for
merly paid for th top-priced aeats
downstairs and the', patronage left
bad to be divided among a multiplied
number and variety of attractions
offered, by tbe rival managers. Only
one result could be expected from
this state of affairs, and It has fol
lowed. , y ' ' , ,
Ons of th first steps that has been
taken In th larger cities bf the coun
try has been to reduce admission
prices. This will cut th unit profit,
but may Increase th total. But It
I not alt that must b done. A
higher quality of entertainment Is
demanded and a restoration of the!
theater to Its proper place In the so
cial life of the people. Th managers
I'must solve this question themselves.
Another Kev School System.
Los Angeles ia about to reorganise
Ita public school course, lengthening
It oa the whole one year; that Is,
making the course from kindergarten
through high school fourteen Instead
of thirteen years. It will consist of
on year In the kindergarten,, six In
the graded schools, making th fifth
year of junior university la charac
ter. At present the court In Los
Angeles, as most othsr place, coo-
slats of one year in, tbe klndergartea,
eight la th graded school and four
la tha high. Th entirely new de
partment la the three-year Inter
mediary, which la contemplated aa
a means of effective articulation of
the graded and high schools.
The theory Is that at present the
course Is very defective there, la that
the graded school pupil passes into
th blgh school quits unprepared for
th latter. He has been accustomed
to depend lsfgely on his teacher for
his studying In the graded schools, tt
is argued, while in the high he must
b thrown largely on hia owa re
sources and th average pupil finds
th gap wder than he is abl con
veniently to bridge. He lose too
much time after he leave the eighth
grade and get into the first year of
high school In simply learning bow
to study. This Intermediary depart
ment of three years becomes, there
fore, the bridge required to span this
If It is really required for no other
pressing purpose, tt seems to be far
from Indispensable. Why could not
special training bo given in the sev
enth and eighth grades that would
meet this same demand! It ia.
though, a fact that the graded schools
are thus deficient In teaching tho
pupil bow to study? If so, then the
sooner wo set to work to correct this
defect tbe sooner We shall make our
schools more nearly what they ought
to be. Whether the grades wore con
tinued ou aa now or tbe three-year
intermediary link was thrown in, tbe
work would have to be done just tbe
same, since there is to be no short
cutting to eliminate graduation. This
revision of the course will throw pu
pils entering Los Angeles from other
states and cities very much out ot
kilter. Thus far we know of ao other
state where a similar plan Is proposed
It Is quite tbe fashion to project
new schemes for our school system,
with whkh most people assume it to
b their unquestioned right to find
flaws. Our system, ot course, is sus
ceptible to improvement, but it ha
work.d very effectually and stands
pre-eminent aa the background of our
potent citizenship. As tbe Hon. Al
