Cabinet Talk About Bryan. ;
" noinci miK nnout Mr uryan, riroj
ever since n democratic president wbsi
nmiurecl, has become more (leflnlto
with the announcement that he Is to
bo offered the place of secretary ofj
Btnte, and has signified a willing-1
ness to serve. Up to this time the
prevalent opinion here In Mr. Dryan'sl
home state has been that ho would
prefer to exercise his self-
r,Knl , (rcct th(J part wjc
assumed
party whenovcr he
thought It was not doing what It
should, as a private citizen rather
than to share the responsibility of
the Wilson administration In an of
ficial capacity. This view has been
based upon his known character, rec
ord, and ambition, and his indisposi
tion heretofore to be n private In tho
ranks, and take a superior's ordorn.
Should Mr. Hrynn go Into the cab
inet, the effect upon his own aspira
tions for the presidency will nntur
ally bo weighed. He hna been cred
ited with putting the one-term
plnnk Into the Ilaltlmore platform to

In 101 C. An invitation to Bryan to
handle a cabinet portfolio nniHt bo
taken to indicate Governor Wilson's
acceptance of that declaration, as we
all know it Is construed by Mr.
Ilrynn, as foreclosing blni from seek

The Split-Fee Doctor.
A graphic representation of the
ovIIb of tho eplit-fee business, as it
has taken hold of too many of our
physician and surgeons, Is presented
by one of our cartoons. While the
extent to which this abuse prevails
may possibly be exaggerated, that it
is a real monace to the public cannot
bo denied, Tho split-fee means the
oxposuru of the unsuspecting patient
to unnecessary or needlessly expen
sive medical treatment or Burglcal
oporatton merely to nopnrato him
from his money. And worse than
that, It offers inducement to the lit
tle doctor to feud tho mnw, not of tho
best and most skillful specialist, but
of tho ono willing to give him the
biggest percentage split on the re
ceipts. This is an evil which could
bo greatly restricted, if not alto
gether abolished, by a simple bit of
legislation declnrlni; It unlawful, anu
ponnllclng thoso who Indulge In it
with forfeiture of their licenses to
practice.
Tht Returned Mail.
Tho government has Just realized
more than $10,000 proceeds from
tho Bnlo of valuahles found in moil
returned to tho dead-letter office,
which' means some heavy individual
losses. This Is all bocnuso of the
simplo carolessncBs of writers in
falling to place their names and ad
dresses in the upper left-hand corner
of tho envelope or wrapper, as they
are instructed to do. It 'stands to
reason that If the Poatofflce depart
ment has so much difficulty In Recur
Ins proper compliance with estab
lished customs, It will continue to
encounter added trouble with tho
multiplying complications of the sys
tem, such, for Instanco, as parcel
post. 'All of which emphasizes the
fact that profitable returns would
surely follow a reasonable amount
of Judicious advertising In connec
tion with Its services to the,' public
for a price. The Postoffite depart
ment Is a gigantic business Institu
tion and is Just as much In need of
advertising as another large commer
cial enterprise. The failure to take
advantage of modern business meth
ods Is ono of the weaknesses In government-managed
Industries, yet a
weakness that might easily be cured.

Pillars of tradition crumble 'and

blight of seniority must go," pro
claims Mr. Bryan. And "men cannot
afford to be courteous when great l
sues are at stake." Already, before
tho Nobraskau assumes the reins of
dictation over tho new congress, a
"URRtern senator arises and ex
corlates his own colleague without
immediate provocation from the lot
tcr. Evidently along with the
"blight of seniority" goes the with
ering "senatorial courtesy."

The Modern Woodmen nntra.
HASTINGS, Neb., Jan. .-To the
Editor of The Bee: On January 82 an
article In your paper. "The Present
Rates Will Stand," contained a statement
of the head consul, Mr. Talbot, giving
notice to the membership of the Modern
Woodmen of America of the capitulation
of tho executive council. This surrender,
thouKh coming late, is good news and
gratifying to the membership. If thin
surrender had been made year ago,
hundreds of thousands of dollars would
have been saved to the order and Its
membership Increased 1CO.C0O.
tn the beginning- prayers and petition
were presented to the head offices, urg
ing and Imploring them to withhold the
proposed rates until the meeting of tho
next head camp or call a new head
camp, or submit the whole matter to ref
erendum vote of the order. All thea4
pleadings were In vain. There being no
alternative, the roemberahlp then applied
to the courts for relief. In every' state
where suit was brought and In every casevi
the courts ha,r held In favor of the plain
tiffs and against the rates.
. I heartily agTe with the heal consul
that all discussion of the last head camp
and the proposed rates should cease.
Doth have passed out of exlsttnc and aro
of the paat. 1 agree further with hlni
that all members should apply them
selves to the work and good of the order.
So far as Nebraska Is concerned discus
sion of the rates ceased months ago,
public Woodmen opinion and sentiment
crystallized quickly after the Chicago
meeting and the only dlscuslon that fol
lowed was the effort of the head officers
at enormous expense to educate the
Woodman that tho proposed rates wero
Just what he needed.
I note that the head consul fears other
suits will be brought. No other suits aro
contemplated. If the exper'SMce through
which the order has passed during the
last year Is to be of lasUnfr benefit, it
will admonish the head officers to keep
In touch with the wants of the rank and
file of the order. No fear need be felt
that the membership will not take a deep
Interest In tho selection of delegates to
the next head camp and it is hoped and
believed that men will be selected -who
will represent the true sentiment of the
memburs.
I do not know the exact loss In member
ship which the order has sustained dur
ing the last year, but It cannot be lesa
than 10 or 15 per cent. Ifeel safe in
saying that had It not been for the hope
held out by our application to the courts
for relief the decrease would have' reached
33 per cent or more.
I-et the delegates to the next head
camp be fairly selected, let the conven
tion be free In Its deliberations and all
Woodmen will abide by the result.

OMAHA, Jan. V, To the Editor of The
Beo: I may be wrong, but my Idea Is
that what tha people of Omaha moat need
and want of the street car company Is
not so much cheaper fares as better serv
ice. For that matter, Omaha needs ex
tension of lines for Its upbuilding most
of all. If we were a great, populous city,
fully or fairly well grown up within, our
population covering our area, then we
might be content to let further extensions
wait indefinitely. I live In a part of town
that needs street car service, and I sup
pose I will be called selfish, but Just tlie
same, I'll bet I'm tn the majority on this
question. D. D, II,

THE SECRET GARDEN.
'TIs good to sit a-dreamlng when wintry
winds are rife;
To hug the warmest corner and forget
the stress of life;
To turn the visions Inward away from
cold and care
And find that flowers of summer,. are
sweetly blooming there.
'Tts (rood to snatch some moments away
from dull routine;
To forget the petty details that make
life small and mean;
And safe within the recess of the soul's
secluded shrine
Behold the universal shaped by a hand
divine.
'TIs good to walk at evening where lift
ing clouds of grey ,
Reveal a golden circlet round the hilltops
t AT B.V flV j
And we retiring Inward may find that
toll and care
Are most divinely blessed when the light
of love ',s there.
And though outside 'tis cold and bleak
and winds reverse are rife.
Within your soul let summer flower
keep bursting Into life;
And you will find a refuge here as In
a summer clime;
In your own soul's secret garden where
'tis always summer time.
