Sincerity , in Preaohisf.
Four branches ot the Presbyterian
church are to hold their respective
general nfcaemDlles. in Atlanta, da.,
simultaneously this month. It is'
understood that negotiations looking
toward ho union i of tho northi and
south, tlia old sch6ol and tho United
Presbyterians, will be undertaken.
The. church in various denominations
seems to have recognized at last
that "In unI6n there is strength"
even aj applied to religious propa
ganda and that that union has refer
ence to physical as well as spiritual
amalgamation. Therefore the tend
ency ot the time la toward the merg
ing of denominational lines, a, tend
ency which certainly the world will
acclaim as wise and right.
It is said that one ot the obsta
cles in tho way ot tho proposed
merging at Atlanta is a situation
growing out ot one. ot tho Presby-'
terlan seminaries Union In Now
York. This Is a seminary whore tho
lines of orthodoxy aro supposed to
be Ioobo. Now York Presbytery,
vihlcli favors the seminary, has re
cently licensed young ministers from
that school to preach In tho Presby
terian church, -who openly renounce
certain fundamental Presbyterian
ana evangelical aoctrines or re
ligioncardinal tenets, in fact. So
long as this is countenanced by this
church, the other branches, it is said,
refuse to merge.
This Booms to be nothing else
than a mere matter ot sincerity and
honesty. Whero an institution is
called a church, subscribes to cer
tain fixed, fundamental principles ot
doctrine, logically, those ltcensod to
preach In Its name ought to sub
scribe to those doctrines. If theso
young men, as they frankly declare,
conscientiously reject its fundamen
tal principles, then why ask this
church to llconse and authorize them
to preach for It? If this Is tho situa
tion, why should they not preach In
tho nnmo of somo denomination with
whoso doctrines they agree? Tho
outside world may not bo concerned
as to tho matter of orthodoxy, but
It Is likely to bo concerned In a
way vitally affecting tho church,
about tho sincerity ot Its preachers.
Special Assessment for Water Mains
The Bee has always favored charg

ments to tho extent that they en

Is called tho system of special as
sossmont for bonoflts, but this

has Its limitations. Wo aro not here
discussing any particular law, or any
question ot conflicting authority, but
tho broad proposition ns to tho wis
dom and justice of compelling prop
erty ownors on ono street to pay for
water plpo service by special assess
ment when property owners on tho
noxt Btrcet havo had tho pipes laid
without special payment.
Applying It more concrotoly. all
property owners and taxpayors liv
ing in Omaha havo boon charged
with tho purchase prico of tho wator
plant as it existed at the time tho
city took It ovor, and obligated to
pay principal and Interest on the
17,000,000 wator bonds with whoso
proceeds tho works woro bought. If
property owners who have thus paid
their sharo for tho plant and dis
tributing pipes aB a whole aro called
on again to pay special assessments
for extension of mains in front of
their property, thoy aro in fact re
quired to pay twice, whllo others Day
only once. The baslo foundation for
justice In taxation Is that thoro shall
b strict uniformity and no discrim
ination, other things being equal,
and this prlnclplo 1b violated overy
time wo havo doublo taxation.
If from the start all property own
ers had boen assossod for special
benefits as tho wator mains were
originally built, this condition would
not bo now presented, nor Is It pre
sented In tho suburban areas outsldo
of tho city limits, whero the property
has not contributed to tho purchase
prlco of tho plant. Tho wator mains
need not be extended at all until as-
surnnco Is given of sufflclnnt
patronaga by a minimum numbor of
consumers to warrant tho Invest
ment, but a change to the system of
special assessment .after the largest
part of tho plpeago has beon paid for
as a general chargo on the commun
ity, works inevitable discrimination
ana double taxation.

Ho Just long enough to arrive in the

So grave an Indictment of the new

must be regarded as Blgnltlcant ot
seriously unsettled conditions. China

centuries as an empire aud a scion

was made provisional president.

In apparent good faith, but it was
putting Yuan'8 ancestral instincts to
the acid tostto make him president
ot a republic and expect him bo to
administer the affairs of government
as to avoid strlfo or suspicion ot bad
faith. Particularly does It soem bo,
since Yuan, despite his greatness as
a statesman, had always beon recog
nlzod likewise as a very crafty politi
cian. It was acclaimed an act ot emi
nent greatness on the part ot Dr.
Sun that lmpolled him to prefer Yuan
Sht Kal for tho presidency instead
ot himself, and at tho samo time it
was-mighty good politics. Sun, as

Why Mr. Olney Declined.
Richard Olnoy basod his dccllna
tln of the British ambassadorship
on tho ground of advanced ago and
the insistent demands of prlvato busi
ness. Since then he has given ex
pression' to, pronounced views on the
subject of Panama canal tolls, de
claring that tho United States built
and owns tho canal and has a right
to mako such tdlls as it sees fit.
Perhaps Mr. Olnoy, truo to the In
stincts of a diplomat, did not take us
fully Into bis confidence in announc-J
Ing his reasons for declining tho ap
pointment to tho Court of St Jamos.
What an ombarrasslng thing it
would have beon for ProBldont Wil
son to commission as our ambassador
to Croat Britain, ono in snch sharp
and emphatic conflict with tho Brit
ish view on this paramount matter.
An$ yet, must we seek a represen
tative for London who is known
oither" to havo no doclslvo opinions
about Icanal tolls, or who coincides
with Johnny Bull's Ideas? This
raises a rather Interesting . question.

peace. Tho Ban Franciscans aro
thinking of their Panama-Pacific
exposition two years hence, and so
havo resolved against any antl-dllon
land law whatever at this tlmo. In
tho name of practical business, they
plead, at least; for postponement.
Porhaps they aro no moro in favor
of permitting Japanese to own land
than is tho stato administration,
which is promoting the agitation,
but California has survived this long
without such a law, and It might pull
through until after1 tho exposition,
thon take it up.
It is,' perhaps, not unnatural that
thls..vlqw should obtrude itself now,
for Japan has-already threatened
as, of course, it Would not to
patronlzo the exposition If such a
law were enacted. But the action
doos not serve to ennoble the princi
ple of the fight California is ondeavr
orlng to make, it is rather disap
pointing in Its effects. Even the
fodernl government, It appears, Is
not arguing against an antlallen
land law which is. not new In this
country -but tho method ot proce
dure. What it seoks to avoid is a
law so framed as necessarily to of

tion. Postponing action ot any kind
is not solving. the problem, which is

the dreariest human being that ever spun

Jews of today reclaim Jesus?" asks Dr.

forcefully that Jesus should be assigned
to the place In Jewish life and Jewish
history which is rightfully His own, that
He should bo reclaimed by the Jews be
cause He was "not only a Jew, but the
Jew of Jews." Rabbi Wise says that "In
reapproprlatlng tholr elder brother, Jesus,
the Jews of today are! not urging a single
step forward toward Christianity, but
accepting the Jewish teachings of Christ
the Jew." He characterizes Him as a
teacher, a leader, a prophet clear-vi-sloned,

humanly divine, but divinely human."

Sunday- morning. Bomehow -when
Sunday morning comes again -Something,
seems to've been unfurled'
And wrapped all about tho world; ' '
Something full of Peace and song.
Something full, of love, and strong;..
As a mother's boundless love;
Something out' of the abovft'1
And lies on the singing hills i
And lies on tho singin gtilla
Lighter than the bits of sun.
Making' them glad and they run,
Blnglng songs that never cease;
Songs whili breathe an. endless peace.
Everywhere the breexes blow,
Evorywhi-ro the ros grow,
Everywhere a violet
With the morning dew is wet
Everywhere pathways are sweet
And mail 'glad for baby feet
Everywhere b.rds havo a nest
Everywhere soft shadows rest
Everywhere smoko-i.rirals rise
Fr jm a cottage to the. skies
Something bends down from above.
Bringing peace and bringing love;
Soothing heartaches, healing pain.
As white blossoms follow rain.
Country roads wind up tho hill.
Country fields lie wido and stiff,
Trees stand, mirrored in each stream.
And tho world spreads like a dreaai
Far as human eyes can see;
Sweet sweet as the used-to-be:
Peaceful as when llfo was young
And Ita gladdest songs were sung:
Hearts that throb and hearts that acha

Ada J.: The best and cheapest shampoo
I know-of is, made from pure, plain can
throx. Simply dissolve a teaspoonful ot
canthrox In a cup of hot water and stir
well until all is dissolved; then proceed to
shampoo by pouring It on the hair and
rubbing well. This makes a tine lather
which makes the head feel good, and
Cleans the scalp, relieves Irritation and
makes the hair soft and fluffy and such
a shampoo costs very little. (See answer
to Dorothy for making a ood hair tonic)
Mrs, T.: It Is true that exercising and
dieting have brought about satisfactory
results to many who considered them
selves too tat but If you are so situated
that you cannot take exercise and find
that dieting weakens you, I would advise
you to try a simple mixture of parnotia
and hot water. Put i ounces ot pamotls
in Vii pints ot hot water and shake well
unUl dissolved. Strain when cold and It
Is then ready tor use. Take a tablespoon
ful 3 times a day and Just before meals.
This Is a harmless flesh reducer.
