It 1 Interesting to know that
Governor Sulier of New York and
Boas Murphy of Tammany are again
at jeaco, but on whpse terms peace
waa effected Is pot stated.
The Home Rule Principle.
Urorybody favors tlio principle of
home rule, nntl particularly the prin
ciple of home rulo In city govorn
mortt. Hut, strangely enough, when
It comos to applying the principle,
It loutloat advocates too often hunt
for an excuse to opposo it.
Horo In Nebraska we have taken
a tromonclous forward stop In the
adoption of a constitutional anicncl-
mont. clvlnc homn rule tn nil clttnfll
having a population of moro than1
5,000--n, step which It has taken us
years to mnko. But ovon-before the
first homo rulo city charter Is
framed, wo meet with "all , sorts of
schemes to Infringe and curtail that
power. Wo -refer not only t6 tho
attempt to take away from Omaha
the managoment of tho w'a'tor plant,
bought with $7,000,000 of Its own
peoplo'B money, but also to tho ef
forts to dcprlvo Omaha, Lincoln and
all other 'cltleg of their right to reg
ulate." public 'service corporations,
whoto very llfo rosts on franchises
granted by each city, and transfer
ring that power to a stato commis
sion whoso mombors may como from
villages or rural communities with
out tho slightest experience with a
streot railway, a gus works or an
olcctrlc lighting plant.
It Is rehinrkablo, too, how those
who talk homo rulo one day and for
got it tho noxt fall to comprehend
that It must bo n genoral principle
One ot thoBO weathorvancs, criticis
ing tho resolution of tho charter
convention, denouncing proposed
ovasloll of home rulo, declares that
there would bo some show of reason
for South Omaha, Dundee and Flor
onco to object, but that Omaha
should not do so. Is It possible that
homo rulo Is good for our neigh
bors, but not for us? Should
Omaha, while Insisting on homo rulo
as against lntoreforenco by South
Omaha or Couticil Dluffs, reach out
to doprlvo South Omaha of Its right
to homp rulo In Its own affairs?
Suppose conditions reversed and tho
town ot Floronce, In which tho
pumping plant Is located, had
bought our water works and tried
to como over Into Omaha and tic-
prlvo us of any volco in tho matter
.of our water sorvlep, and of control
of our parks nnd streets, would wo
not rightfully resout It?
It Is a poor rulo that does not
work both wnys. Tho homo rulo
prlnclplo Is not for Omnha alono, not
for South Omnha alone, nor for Lin
coin alono, but It Is for ovory city In
Nebrnska over 5,000 population.
Streets as Skating Rinks.

In connection with tho proposed
enactment of workmen's compensa
tion laws, it is pertinent to noto the
commendation of tho Wisconsin law
by tho Outlook, which carries tho
name of the recent presentlal candi
date of tho progressive party as its
contributing editor. This law, whoso
constitutionality has already been
successfully tested in tho courts
seems to appeal particularly to tho
Outlook, which In the curront Issu

of the workmnn. The fact that few cases
are brought beforo tho Industrial com
mission because of disagreement of
parties, or of tho unwillingness of either
to abide by the act as agreed, speak;

awards madn In tho few cases that th
commission hn-s been called upon to do
cldo leaves no doubt ns to tho benefits to
tho workman. Moreover, all employe
report that their men, "seem satisfied
with tho act."
Incidentally, It may be said that
tho bill recommended for Nebraska
by the majority of our workraon'i
compensation commission was based
on, and followed closely, the Wlscon
sin law with tho exception that It
sought to mako It more genoral and
compulsory In ordor to extend Its
bonoflts to all workingmen rather
than to thoBO only whoso employers
consent to accopt It.
When Dnvld Livingstone died, It

Alger and Ballinger.
Americana perhaps aro not far
enough off from tho events to givo
tho correct perspective to either the
Alger ot Balllngor Incldonts in their
political history. In tlmo we may
como to view both in truer light. In
tho mcantlmo it is interesting to
havo (he version of a careful stu
dent of contemporary history, who
might bo considered entlroly un
biased In his deductions, A. Maurlco
Low, the able Washington cor
respondent of the London National
Rovlow, In tho current number of
that magazluo he says:
At tne oiofo or me apaman war it waa
oil rotten meat and the medical arrange
ments were Inadequate, the public
clamored for n. victim and Mr. Alger,
the new secretary ot war, was made the
Hoapegout. Mr. Alger was not responsi
ble for tho country's unpreparcdness for
war; the blamn rested with congress,
which hod refused to muke the necessary
appropriations or to provide for u mod
ern military system; but dead or de
feated niemberB ot congress could not be
crucified, while Mr, Alger could easily
bo brought to the place of execution.
Mr. McKlnley had either to stand by Mr.
Alger because he knew he was unjustly
accused and risk a loss of popularity, or
throw over his secretary ot war as a
concession to public opinion.- This He
did; and the publlo having been given a
victim, was satisfied 'and Mr. McKlnley
lost none of his popularity.
, Mr. Ballinger, Mr. Taft' secretary ot
the interior, was the target for the at
tacks of men who were looking for an
opportunity to Injure the pronldent. and
a bitter campaign was carried on to

and his retention as secretary undoubt

his (Mr. Tafts) hold on the country.
While this may not be tho tlmo to
give tho Balllngor Incidont Its proper
sotting In history, It Is cafe to say,
with reference to Mr. Tnft's connec
tion with It, neither his honesty of
purpose nor his courage of conviction
will over be opon to question.
The Open Door for Railroads.
California, having succeeded,
through Its State Railway commls
slon, in defeating the original plan
for unmerglng tho Union Pacific-
Southern Pacific, Is now attempting
to dictate a substitute plan that will
mako tho Benlcla cut-off nn open
door, admitting all railways that
may desire to run Into San Francisco
over that route. Tho Benlcla cut
off crosses an arm of the San Fran
cisco bay and forms tho most direct
route between Sacramento and San
Francisco. It is owned by tho
Southern Pacific and has been used
exclusively by the Harrlman lines.
Tho Western Pacific, tho Gould
road, Is demanding admission to this
door with the backing of tho clamor
In tholr appeal for this concession
tho Union Pacific bridge over the
river at Omaha 1b cited as an open
door precedent justifying tho samo
thing at Benlcla, In the fact that
many roads entering Omaha use tho
Union Pacific bridge on equal tormB.
On the other Bide, however, It Bhould
bo borno In mind that theso roads
entering Omaha servo as rich feed
ers for Union Pacific westward busi
ness and aro in no way competitors.
Nevertheless, In this fight of the
rival roads for preferred position In
the unmerger, this question of tho
open door seems to havo become tho
Our South American Trade.
According to reliable sources, tho
exports from tho United States to
South America will approximate
$150,000,000 for tho fiscal year end
ing Juno 30, 1D13, as' against $41,
000,000 in 1003, a very fair gain for.
tho decade. Our Imports from South
America will approximate $240,000,
ooo, an against $107,000,000 for
1903. Tremendous Increases in our
commerce with South America were
made in tho last four years. Tako
for instance our exports to Argen
tina, which increased from $32,000,
000 in 1008 to $53,000,000 in 1912;
to Urazll, $19,490,077 in 1908 to
$34,678,081 in 1912; to Ch.llo,
$9,194,050 In 1908 to $15,491,84G

Taft-Knox dollar diplomacy was de

which, by tho way, President Wilson
seems to have adopted. President
Taft upon assuming office, was con
fronted by a discouraging altuatlon
In South America. Thero was lack
of congonlal relations with ub In
many states, keen estrangement in
others. A practical policy, ono that
would knit together bonds of com
mercial Intorcourso aa woll as Inter
national amity, was needed. Dollar
diplomacy filled tho bill, performing
tho dual function. Now, it Is espe
cially gratifying that 85 per cent of
our Immense merchandise sent to
South America Is In manufactured
articles, as compared, for instanco,
with 47 per cent manufactures of all
our exports. Tho United States must
load In manufacturing exports to this
country, but wo were not making en
couraging gains In that direction up

AN EASTER POEM.
When from tho Mount the Virgin wcnt-
The awful Mount of Calvary
Her slender form was weak and bent
"Thy sorrow Is too great for thee,
Ah, thdu hast tasted blttor wine,
Gethsemane Is ills and thine,"
Said Magdalen, nil wan and spent
Then came a woman through the gloom,
Her eyes like shadows In. the. light
Of torches on the Mount of doom
She -seemed a lost ghost hi the night,
Her white hair hung unkempt and dank.
From her the Magdalen, scornful, shrank
- As ono who seeB n loathely sight.
Then Mary, Mother, sped as fast
As mothers go when young babes cry
(O gentle heart! O love so vast!)
And klesed the woman's eyelids dry!
"O thou to my eyes raise thy face!"
"Not I most cursed of all the race
I In whoso soul all hopo Is past." t
"To thine my sorrow Is as naught,1'
Tho Mother said. The woman wept,
"I Judas bore!" The soldiers caught
Tho words, and spat. "Yea, him I kept
Safe In my arms, heart to my heart.
His shame and death are my part
In life." Her shrieks o'er all sounds
The gracious John looked stern and cold,
He tried to part the close-linked pair,
But Mill tho Mother would enfold
The woman of the wild despair
"My Son is Mercy thou shalt see
The boy that laughed upon thy knee."
Said Magdalen. "The traitor sold,"
"Hush, hush, O friend my IJfe, my Sunt
I see the spear." the Mother said,
"And I will ask the spear pierced One
For this for thee when thou llest dead.
Thou from thy woo shalt find release,
The torture of thy heart shalt eearfc.
Him thou shalt meet." "Ah, Js't well
Said Magdalen, "to give him peace?"
