Off Again, as Usual,
With Kb "sparo-us-a-speclal-elec-
tlon" fake exposed and exploded, our
amiable democratic contemporary Is
trying to find a cover to hide bo
hind. Seeing that a special election
to vote relief funds is Imminent in
fact with Its own business manager
advocating It the editor of the
World-Herald now appeals to the leg
islature to "spare us a second special
election," when everybody knows
that we can vote on both proposi
tions at one and the same special
election without any trouble what
ever. Dut where this Water board cham
pion Is furthest off Is whan he de
clares that the bond 'Issue must be
submitted to a voto because "there
Is no other way." That statement Is
born of grievance, for It has no
foundation of fact whatever. The
legislature could, It It wanted to,
authorlte the county or city to Issue
the proposed relief bonds without a
vote of the people at all. The city
has had authority all the time to
Issue renewal bonds, park bonds and
district paving bonds without a vote
by the people, but on general princi
ples evoryone agrees that it Is not
wise to give public officials such
power, especially for issuing bonds
for a new purpose. So in this case
no one has even suggested that the
relief fund bonds be Issued except
after tbe people vote them.
If a vote of the people, even at the
expense of a special election, Is re
garded aa necessary to meet tbe big
gest problem of the tornado destruc
tion, why should the popple be
denied tho right to say what they
want to do with tbolr water works?
No, Mr. Water Board Apologist, you
are completely cornered. The only
reason you do not want your pet
water district bill conditioned upon
popular approval is that your $5,000-a-year
hydraulic politician does not
daro tako the chance.
Help of Nebraska Communities.
Omaha people value jind appreciate
tho sympathy and' aid of their friends
and neighbors in other Nebraska
communities. Hardly had the news
of our misfortune gone out than
words of solicitude and tokens of ma
terial assistance began to come in
and they have come In very substan
tial measure Omaha's affltctton Is
Nebraska's affliction, which is made
plain In a very real sense at this
time. The people of the state will
contribute further In the measures
of relief enactod by the legislature.
In yet another way thoy have put
tholr shoulder to the wheel and ren
dered valiant eorvlce and that is
through the militiamen, so many of
whom are sturdy sons of the smaller
towns or cities or tho farm. If there
were a casting up of accounts, these
young men would be found with a big
balance on the right side . of the
Influence of Cabinet Officers.
In vtho light of the pffense taken
by England' at Secretary Bryan's
home rule speech, some remarks by
the Washington correspondent of
the London National Review as to
the "power or responsibility" of
American cabinet officers, are inter
eating. Says this correspondent, A.
It la curious the Intense Interest taken
(by Americana) In the cabinet when one
remembers that In tho United States the
cabinet has neither power nqr responsi
bility, a those terms nro understood in
the English system of government. In
the United States the most Inconspicuous
member of congress hat more real power
than the secretary of state, who is the
Yot a most casual remark by the
secretary of state,) may completely
upset the whole British nation and
provoke ringing denunciations from
its press, as did the speech of Mr,
Bryan's on 8t. Patrick's day when
ho threw a few bouquets to the Irish
Americans. As a matter of tact,
there is nothing in the constitution
to compel a president to name a
cabinet at till; ho acta entirely from
tradition and custom In this, and the
wlso desire, of course, to bave a set
of advisers about him (n whose judg
ment he has confidence. But any
president might proceed without a
cabinet, so that England's super
sensitiveness of cabinet officers' re
marks would seem to attach a great
power and responsibility io them, Ir
respective of their official status.
Tho appeal to the people of Omaha,
In and out of the tornado district, to
clean up their premises, trim their
trees, plant flowers and restore their
summer beauty 1b all right, and
strikes a popular chord. But how
are we going to have green lawns
and pretty posy gardens without gen
erous sprinkling? And how are we
going to be able to sprinkle with the
water clicking at the meter at these
extortionate charges? Now is tho
time, Mr. Water Board, to redeem
your promjso of lower water rates.
If the legislature wants to redeem
Its promise of a w6rkmen's compen
sation law framed in the Interest of
all who work tor wages, it will sub
stitute for the measures before it,
the bill recommenced by the Ne
braska Compensation commission,
modeled after the Wisconsin law, so
highly and generally commended.
If Mr. Bryan's regrets over calling
back to this country so many good
republicans now serving in the
diplomatic corps abroad is so keen
as he represents, he might recoil
elder his determination and keep
them where they are.

Twice Told Tales
Sir Donald Mann of the Canadian
Parliament, while In New York recently,
told this story:
"The other day I witnessed a funny
scene in a refreshment room ot the
Canadian Pacific station In Montreal. An
Englishman was sitting at one ot the
large tables and next to him a man who
seemed to belong to the humbler walks
" 'Please pass me those potatoes," said
the man to the elegant gentleman. The
latter slowly ' focused his eyeglass on
the speaker and haughtily asked, 'Did
you think 1 was one of the waiters?' I
expected to see our poor friend shrivel
up, but he turned and beckoned to a
" 'George, come here, please.'
" 'What is it, sir? asked George.
" 'I want to apollglze to you. You see.
I mistook this party hero for you, but
I hope you won't bo offended at It. And
now pass me those potatoes.'
'That's what you call a boomerang, eh,

"The Judge In question was presiding
over a very Important trial, when a
rather small boy was placed on the wit
ness stand, and, naturally, the Judge
was assailed with doubt as to whether
he was competent to testify.
" 'How old are you, my little man?"
asked the Judge In a kindly tone, turnlnr
to the diminutive witness.
" 'Fourteen, sir,'? answered the young,

" 'Tea, I see,' returned the Judge. 'Do
you understand the nature of an oath?'

OMAHA, April t To the Editor of The
Bee; The numerous "freak" stories and
pictures you have published have con
siderable value In the study of the me
Chsjilcal action of a tornado, and what
should be done to avoid danger as far
as possible. A freak volume, to supple
ment your excellent pictorial volume,
giving all the unusual Incidents the vari
ous papers have published, would have
great public Interest.
,1 enclose a so-called picture of the tor
nado cloud which certainly seems to me
to be not of the late tornado. It is en
tirely too small at the base, covering
only about fifty feet width. Everything
Is quiet in the vicinity. It going away
from the camera, destruction should be
evident. It coming toward the camera,
at 140 miles per hour, the camera would
have been destroyed. It moving toward
either side, destruction would have been
evident. The picture appears to be of a
burning house. The fence of this house,
poles vertical In the cloud, etc, all Indi
cate no wind.
This picture going to outside territory
would make Omaha's reports of dis
tress appear to be fake reports. It Is
totally at variance with your excellent
book of views. A. A. 6CHENEK.
The Sncramento Valley.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., March 29.-To the
Editor of The Bee: In your issue of Jan
uary IS, 1913, appeared an article signed
by one John Truten of Butte City, Glenn
county, California. I am surprised that
you would give space to a communica
tion ot this kind, containing statements
that a small amount of Investigation
would show to be erroneous. 1 assuro
you that In asking space to this Item,
the writer has taken advantage of your
We have Inquired very carefully and
we have not been able to find a single
person who ever heard of John Truten.
After Inquiry embracing several weeks,
we have come to the conclusion that who
ever wrote this article was either writ
ing under a fictitious name, or elso had
never been In the Sacremento valley long
enough to learn anything about this
Some statements ot Mr. Truten's ar
ticle strike me rather forcibly, especially
with reference to the following:
Time was when this state could ndt
be beaten, but that was when it was a
stock country and its great mines sent
gold to all parts of the world. Now the
mines are nearly worked out, stock rais
ing has diminished to a great extent, the
land does not yield the crops It did once,
and the climate, while not cold like the
eastern states, has changed so that we
have frost to kill fruit crops. A. good
yield comes once every four or five years.
The wind Is blowing today and the ther
mometer registers 14 degrees above zero
but the land sharks do not tell you about
In the first place the writer evidently
refers to the time when stock raising was
carried on almost entirely on large ranches
that averaged many thousands of acres
each. There are more cattle and stock
raised in California and the Sacramento
valley today than ever before, but not
upon the immense ranches as was for
merly the case, but on small tracts
planted to alfalfa and where It formerly
took several acres to support one head,
now an acre will support one or, two-H
neao, uaiorornia is now producing" more
gold than ever before in Its history. She
now outranks Colorado as the leading
producer of minerals of any state in the
union and practically all of this mineral
wealth comes from the counties, either
In or adjacent to the Sacramento valley.
The annual production of the soli of
thirteen counties in the Sacramento val
ley now amounts to $1K.OOO,000, which Is
an. enormous sum for such a territory to
produce and when all the land that Is
available for Intensive agriculture shall
have been utilised, the wealth of our
products wll be many times greater than
it Is now.
With reference to the climate I enclose
a folder Issued by the weather bureau
here in Sacramento that easily refutes
the statements he makes about the tem
