"There w not bait so much war tn tha
nineteenth, century an In ths eighteenth,
und there woivt be half mi muc'.i In the
twentieth as there was In the nineteenth."
nald Edwin t. Meade of Boston, execu
tive secretary of the World Peoce Poun
datlon, In his address on "The Growth uf
Lanv" before the Omnha Commercial club
nt the noon luncheon. ,
Tho speaker also called attention to
the part commerce has played In brlnclnc
on the wars of the past, "llut." he said.
"If the rivalries of trade have bidught on
ome of the collisions of tho past, com
mercial cu-opcratlons In the future will
be a. biff factor in maintaining peace ino
times rrreater. All that the peaco n.ova
ment needs Is tho ornanlzatlon of na
tions as wo have the states federated In
the nations now."
The speaker then reviewed the shurt
history of Tho I la sue conference nnd
called attention to the Wt that it wns
now an established IiistKtitlon with in
next time of meeting set for 1513.
,"If there Is nnc interest In the wor!d
that depends upon peace for Its life."
wild the speaker. "It Is the Interest f
commerce." For this icnson the mieaicir
pointed out that the various chambers if
commerce were beginning rapidly to ally
themselves with the pence inuvcmeiit.
"The cheering tliinij In the peace mov..
ment," he raid. "Is that war Is actually
disappearing from tho earth. Emerson
in his es?ay on war has said, 'History !s
the record or the dcclino of war." This
we find to bo true tho more 'wo think of
it. Tears ago war Was tho regular husi
nets of nations. "War has gradually do
creased, and It la now no longer the chltf
business of nations."
The rtisht rtev: George Allen Ceechcr,
bishop of the missionary district of
Kearner, addressed tho noon mooting on
the subject, "Conservation of Char
acter." lie pointed to the undeveloped
character of boys and girls as the great
est asset of tho nation, as well also ai
the greatest liability. IIo touched on
integrity in business and said that tho
time had come when In the rush of
business competition men had sometimes
sacrificed their Integrity. Ho uald that
this could not go on, for a man who
was dishonest In his business roflcctod
that dishonesty on his neighbor. "Ho
must realize that ho is, indeed, bis
brother's keeper," said the bishop. "Tho
public conscience has never been so
keen in tho discovery for wrongdoing
in high places as now. This Is shown
in sorao of the recent' happenings in tho
"United States senate. Tho highest good
Is possible only insofar as we conserve
the welfare and Interests of others."

TO GO T,0 JAIL RATHER
THAN WORK ON THE ICE
Ernest Myers and Frank Sellers went
to jai for thirty days rather than work
cutting Ice at Seymour lake. Judge Fostfr
specified that the two men were to serve
their time In the city Jail, because they
were confident, he says.that they would
be given an opportunity to enjoy the
luxuries of the new county Jail.

Officer Job Hel when they refused to go

th city commission to amend an ordin
ance recently passed and now in effect.
making It a misdemeanor for any person
or corporation to place lu malt boxes, on
porches or behind the screens of houses
any bill or paper or communication not
stamped anl addressed, with tho excep
tion of newspapers.
The gas company says 23,000 stntomepts
are sent out by them and left In the mall
boxes when tho resident is not home.
Thus they would commit 25,000 violations
of the ordinance each month, Other cor
porations are also complaining.
There is some question as to the consti
tutionality of the ordinance, as it extends
its Jurisdiction over the private property
of a resident in a manner-thnt1 some con
sider very personal and trivial.
It Is probable the amendment will bo
submitted at the meeting ot the commlttco
of the whole Monday evening. Council
men have expressed, no intention to op
