Another man will take bis own placo Instead of Mr Morgan's place, or, perhaps, :t would be more correct to say, other men. Ultimate Effect. Great public calamities nro often called blessings In disguise, and it Is true that they often work transfor mations and Improvements that might have been easily brought obout without them. Under impera tive necessity of repairing the dam age, pcoplo aro spurred on to offorts and achievements of which they have no idea they woro capable. Visitation of n tornado llko that which visited Omaha, for example, will be followed by unusual activity In rebuilding, and the money spent for this purpose will glvo employ ment to many workmen and noticea bly quicken numerous channels of trade. In Its ultimate effect, how over, destruction of life and property can nover bo anything but nn addi tional burden. It extinguishes earn ing power and wipes out savings and Investments which can be replaced only by further saving, although for the tlmo being tho draft may bo mado upon n-reservoir tof wealth, which will take its time to bo re plenished. This thought is well expressed In a discussion of the steel trade in tho Engineering and Mining Journal, which says: It ,ls said in some quarters that a push will be given to tho steel tirade by tho emergency demand for bridge and other material for repairs and rebuilding. This Is true, but It Is a very llrhltod view of the rase. Tho property destroyed by storm and flood Is a total, or almost total, los. It Is so much property which has disappeared and must be mado good tn one form or another. It will In the end diminish tho amount available for new construction, and In tjiat way will docreasq tho demand for (ton and steel to nn amount far greater&han the re quirements for emergencytrepalrs will lncrcase It. Loss by war or public calamity Is an entire loss, and will sooner or later make Itself .felt In busi ness. Fortunately, our present condi tions are such that we can meet these losses without any extraordinary exer tion or disturbance. What nnfllles to tho stool trade ap plies In varying degreoTto Industry in general. Tho ultimata offect of tho tornadp havoc is loss; its bene fits must coma from at reawakonod public spirit and a stimulated Indi vidual and community effort. On False Issues. Tho approval by tho legislature of tho water district bill over the pro tests of a largo majority of tho dele gation from this county shows what can bo accomplished by raising false issues. Dy cunning misrepresenta tion tho law-makers woro led to bo llovo that municipal ownership was at stake, and that oxcluslvo Jurisdic tion over a larger area was necessary to safeguard the 7,000,000 Invest mont Omaha has mado in ita water works plant. As a mattor of fact, tho quostlon of municipal ownership has not entered Into tho controversy at any stage, and enlargement of powot ie only a cloak to hide the real purpose of exompting tho water -works from tho home rule provisions of tho constitution. All that tho moasuro seeks to do by way of extending Jurisdiction be yond tho corporato limits of Omaha could readily have boen done without creating a water district, without in vesting the Water board. with special privileges not enjoyed by other oleo- tlvo city officers, without depriving the people of Omaha of proporty rlghtB paid for with their; own money, and without trading off, or giving away, any of tho revenue said, to bo necessary to financial success. The passago-of tho water bill again furnishes tho unanswerable arga mont for home rule. In refusing to let the people concornod pons on it first by popular vote, Us sponsors ad mil mot moir amy uupo my m suadlng a body of nonresident law makers, unfamiliar with our own conditions, to impose their will Upon Omaha without asking our consent and rogardloss of our protests. No more flagrant violation of the. bomo rulo principle could possibly havo been perpetrated. Belgium'! Political Strike. Plural voting In Bolgium, which has provoked the present political strike, Is a survival of tho old foudal system of .the middle ages, under -which political powors and the rights of landlords were united and ten ants and vassals often Identical While, therefore, tho present appll cation of the methods and forces of organised labor for solely political purposes may bo novel in history. the principles Involved in the con trovorsy are not new. Under feudalism men performed certain services or made certain payments, not always In money, to the grantor of a fief to whom as rulo tho granteo performed. a bond of homage or fealty. It Is Impossl ble, perhaps, to traco down the con dltlon In western Europe from six to ten centuries ago to tho prosent system in Belgium by which the suffrage is -rogulated upon a basis of property ownership, or the pay' ment of taxes, but It is easy to recog nlto the same general principle. It Is not surprising that the wage earners of Belgium have rleort against this medieval system, for Belgium bas forged forward In many "ways of late. The strikers demand the right of a single vote for every male citizen, Instead of the present rule allowing additional votes ac cording to size of families and for tunes. The report that the working people have organized and raised 6trlke fund of $3,000,000 to start with would seem to indicate a da- termination to stop short of nothing 1 lnt Btiltrnati In tvlmtn ttn.t Tf talnly will rank as one of tho most remarknblo strikes in history, tho culmination of several lesser at tempts of the kind during which preparations for a long struggle have evidently bcon made. A Memorable Arbor Day. The idea of devoting special at tention to planting trees In tho tor nado section on Arbor day is n orthy one. With tho co-operation bf school children and othors it should be mado a most memorable Arbor day In this state, to which it Is atlve, as the homo of J, Sterling Morton and Dr. George h. Miller, Its authors, Ono of tho most saddest features f tho great storm Is to be found in the gaunt, nude skeletons of once beautiful trees all along the way. If considerable number of theso could. bo replaced on April 22, oven though will rcquiro years for growth, It will be a work well worth doing. Our people should, as far as possible, keep "open dates" for this day and end nil tho help ihey can townrd sotting out and trimming trees and shrubbery. Thoy should do as well in that as thoy did In tho two days of general clennlng-up of tho debris. Supplanting Loan Sharks. The many futilo efforts to curb the rapacity of loan sharks In vari ous states mako it worth while to consider tho plan proposod by the Industrial club of Chicago, In which sixty largo firms, with a total of about 100,000 employes, have or ganized to loan money to deserving tollers at rates of Interest that will work no hardships upon tho bor rower. As an evidence of good faith and business stability they sub scribed to bogin with a fund of 150, 000, to bo increased as necessity oc casions. With tho sanction of tho leg islature, tho plan is expected to op erate successfully and put tho un scrupulous loan sharks out of busi ness. Of course, if tho wage earner can borrow monoy at a fair rate of in terest on reasonable terms, whero his rights will bo respected, ho cer talnly will not patronize money p. rates seeking to proy upon his mis fortune. Abuses of tho loan system has mado all sorts of trouble, not only for tho employo, but the em ployer, and, though not prompted en tlroly by philanthropy, It is com mendablo when largo .employers thus organize to provide protection for tho unfortunato. If the plan proves successful in Illinois It will doubt less be adopted in other stntes. More Colonization Work. Some of the railroads report plans for increased activity In western colonization work, which for a few years, has been allowed to movo along without much special effort. This Is very good news. With tho excellent progress going on In the west, there Is opportunity for moro rapid settlement, which will be facilitated by renewed systematic campaigns. Of course, thero may nevor bo another rush to tho land such as most western states havo witnessed in tho courso of tholr de velopment, but what Is better, thero should b steady Influx of perma nent settlers, families' Booking rural homos, with n littlo capital and a lot of grit. For such tho groat states west of the Mississippi aro over beck oning. And In pursuing a new cblohlzatlon enterprise those in charge may bo able to avoid errors of tho past and locate their Bottlers with better at tention to local fitnesses and tastes, which will work mutual advantages, Now Is the time for each western state to look to lis own Interests li? this particular, as most of them aro. i Missouri, heretofore, very conserva tive In this and other ways, has ap propriated through Ita legislature $100,000 for rural development, along somowhat different lines, how ever, than contemplated runner west Its plan 1b to promote local interest with a view of keeping Its own people within Its own borders. That, too, Is a needful provision to make, but states like Nebraska havo less occasion for anxiety on that score than tho inducing of now popu lation. Rural Community Life. Tho chief need for tho Improve ment of American rural life Is a community of lntorest, social a8 well as economic, and social before economic, for one will naturally fol low tho other. This lies at the bot tom of the present movement to se curo improved systems of farm credit and marketing of products. Organized co-operation Is tho key word to this whole enterprise. Tho entire scheme for cheaper Interest, hotter credits, advantageous market ing, Is predicated upon It. Profitable production and economical distribu tion are to come through this or ganized co-operation of tho men who actually till the soil. We are getting very close to the crux of the rural problem when the salient needs are thus commonly recognized by farmers, financiers and economists, as shown In the confer ence at Chicago on marketing and farm credits, whose conclusions aro soon to be presented to President WlUon with recommendations that whatever reform of currency and banking may be enacted, congress shall provide facilities for financing i Vi n farm nnrl urtlfillnr tnrlllatrlna "relatlvely equal to tho facilities af forded tho great manufacturing, commercial and businoBS interests." Wo havo proceeded slowly along this line In tho United States, oven with the profitable oxporlonco of Euro pean countries to guldo us, but it seems finally determined at last that in this pre-eminently agricul tural land, ono of tho basic needs Is an adequate readjustment of fi nance's that will especially accommo date tho farmers, so from now on progress should bo more rapid. The Morals Court. Chicago has a new tribunal known nB the morals court, before which violations of what Is termed morals'' aro to bo taken for ar raignment. It is designed to relievo other courts of pressure, and If It re sults In speeding blind Justlco on her blundering way It will perform an additional service of great value. But n question arises as to tho dis tinction of strictly moral offenses. A very old law gives ono category to "Thou shalt not kill," "Thou shalt not commit adultery" and "Thou shnlt not steal," preserving sllenco as to penalties In each case, leaving all apparently to bo tried before a common bar under ono Jurisdiction. Society has since made its own dis tinctions, but It is easy to porcoivo porno difficulty In deciding between two wrongs as to tho strictly moral olement, especially when tho moraf turpitude is involved in all offenses. What nro commonly called social evils, of course, are tho ones at which this morals court is primarily aimed, but now that we have gono to linking economic inequalities with social malefactions it Is suro to bo still harder to draw tho line with oven approximate precision. Mexico's Predicament. The anti-American feeling evi dently Is deepening in Moxico, and this manifest ill will is not conducive to oarly American recognition of the now government. President Huerta is reported as acutely aggrieved at our deliberation. In tho meantime American sailors aro slain and new disorders arise on Mexican soil. All General Huerta has to do to induco the United States to recognize his government is to provo his ability to socuro and maintain peace and order and protect American citizens. For threo years Mexico has boen in tho grasp of civil war. Two chief executives havo been dopose'd, ono of them exiled and tho other murdered Revolts within revolts have come and gone, and oven now thore Is nothing approximating a coherent patriotism Personal ambition and perfidy havo shown themselves to bo dangerously intertwined. General Huerta, him self, first followed Porfirlo Diaz, be ing bo stanch a friend of the old war rlor as to bo chosen to escort htm to Vera Cruz to begin his exile. Later he Joined Madero, tho conquorer of Diaz, and finally led tho onslaught that deposed him. In it all, tho anti-American spirit has been strong, and fanned by the officials to curry popular favor for themselves. If Moxico needs our recognition to rehabilitate Its credit abroad. It should first deserve our confidence A Chicago newspaper Is making much of tho fact that property own ers thero are subject to twenty-four separato and distinct taxing bodies, making responslblo control of the tax rate an Impossibility. That is worse than here in Omaha, whero five dif- feronrtax rates have to be paid, and ours 1b bad enough. "Men die and tho world wags on,' dryly commented James J. Hill upon ho death of, his old-time rival in the railroad world, B. H. Harrlman. And In quick succession Cassatt, Grlscom McCrea and Morgan have followed and still the world wags on. What a great old world It Is! Mr. Bryan's Commoner notes that when ox-Governor Burke of Norlb Dakota qualified as treasurer of the Unltod States he receipted for one- half billion dollars. 'Yes, and noth lng like such an amount waB over turned over by an outgoing demo cratlo administration. Senator Norrls la going to push his bill to take tho postofflce com nlotely out of politics by making every Job In it subject to civil serv Ice. It's dollars to doughnuts tbe senator's bill does not become a law so long as the democrats are hand lng out the pie. The thrifty and shifty gentleman who held down the Job of superin tendent of the Kearney Industrial school under two governors of op posite political parttes, with his whole family on the payroll, was a reformer, all right. The Intimate and confidential ro tations between the president and his secretary of state may be understood from the fact that the secretary learned of the appointment of Mr Page as British ambassador through the newspapers. How a former precedent-smashing president must be kicking hlmeeK now to think that he let slip the op portunity of addressing congress in person. To have a mere professor put that stunt across must be humiliating. looking Backward COMPILED FROM DEB FILES ? poo aoo c .piul ia. Thirty Years Air. uisiriot court Is about to adjourn.
