"a vory Interesting Scotsman" ho

who said that In ovory generation
all sorts of speculation and thinking

In lino with that, a writer In tho cur
rent Atlantic Monthly calls attention
to tho fact that one of tho throe Is

ment chiefly concerns itself Ib tho
progress of woman.
If tho nosltlon of woman measures
tho advancement of the age, It marks
our modorn era, as definitely pro
gressive, for In all cycles of History
woman's social Btatus has never been
so high. Gauging civilization ac

of tho new day of modern sentiment
in China was an awakened conscious

The Dodge streot road is the moat

So aside from illustrating the pos
slbllltles of base ball as an impelling

her profession. Learning has its
attractive sides; even the dry subject

OMAHA, May 4.-To the Editor of The
Bee: After a-casual examination of th
workman's compensation act I am Im
pressed with the following points which
I desire submitting to the profession and
In times gone by you know of the gen
eral dissatisfaction with Judges who took
cases from the Jury and set aside ver
dicts. On the other hand you know the
Jury has an element of human sympathy,
Is not elected and is not threatened by
corporato influence when estimating dam
Observe, now, where the corporations
get rid of the Jury in every case ot dam
ages to an employe. They soem to forget
tho blood that was shed to force this
right of Jury trial from. King John. Now
lay aside, it you please, the very small
schedule of the highest amounts that
can bo recovered under this act and bear
In mind that the employer Is not obliged
to pay even that amount. He can say
that the employe was drunk or willfully
negligent In other words, he can refusq
to pay. You may then under section 37
of the act file a petition in court before
the Judge, as an arbitrator, the samo as
In equity cases, where the Judge, without
a Jury, with fear and trembling, may fix
the amount not exceeding the amount
In this small schedule.
Section VI. article I. of our constitution
provides "the right of trial by Jury shall
remain Inviolate." Tho supreme court
has held that this provision applies to
every action where a Jury could havo
been demanded when the constitution was
adopted. That provision has enabled us
to always demand a Jury. The legisla
ture cannot take away this right by mak
ing a law action one of equity. This Is a
mere subterfuge to tjeat tho Jury to It.
Again, -section XIII, article I. of the
constitution says: "All courts shall be
open nnd every person for. any Injury
done him In his lands, goods, person or
reputation shall havo a remedy by due
course of law and Justice administered
without dental or delay." Our constitu
tion guarantees a remedy not a partial
remedy and guarantees It by "due course
of law" In the usual manner, nnd not by
some tabloid, piecemeal, Jury eliminating,
Insurance man's game of chance schedule.
They cannot substitute an Insurance pol
icy for a Jury trial. It guarantees Justice
without denial and not partial Justice and
partial denial of rights.
Before commenting further on the
above section, see also section HXI, artl
above section, see also section XXI, artl
talong property without "due process of
law." The courts have held the phrase,
"due process of law," to mean "compen
sation," and also that "compensation"
means the full value of losses measured
In money. "With these sections, how
could the legislature compel a man to ac
cept less than what Is compensation for
an Injury? A law giving doublo damages
has been held to bo In violation of these
sections. Railroad rates which could be
proven not compensatory hftvo been held
What should our courts do, when this
bill was passed In violation of the above
section, compelling a man to tako one
tenth or less than real compensation
for damages sustained? If railroad rate
16glstatlon which Is. not compensatory Is
Mnconstltutlortal, hoV abdOt this damage
scheme which Is less than compensatory?
In fact the bill Is unconstitutional In be
ing broader than Its title.
It Is claimed by the title to be a bill
to "compensate'' employes when It Is, in
fact, a bill to give It t othem In the neck
It Is to avoid compensation.
To Illustrate, a vigorous, strong young
man of education with a family working
at a packing house for $60 per month
loses his leg by the gross negligence of
his employer can receive only about 3730.
The family ot the same man kilted would
receive less than 31,800. And even this
claim may bo resisted, as pointed out
above, without a Jury.
I condemn tho history of this whole
act as one of legislative Infamy Induced
by a corporate lobby. Besides, It was
drawn In a night and passed the next day
tn violation of another provision of the
constitution that It shall be read twice
on two different days before the third
reading and passage.
When the laboring men look this matter
up they will lose no time In enjoining-
tho codifying commission from spending
the state's money In printing and in en
cumbering the new statutes with this un
constitutional act, settling the same about
the time It Is supposed to go into effect
I will take pleasure In assisting to do
this and then I will Join you in prepar
ing a workman'a compensation act that
compensates to submit to .the people un
der the Initiative law of this state. -

Call It a Hospital School."
OMAHA, May . To the Editor of The
Bee; I am making bold to present to you
views quite In opposition to those ex
pressed In your recent editorial on the
"Bad Boy School." I feel sure that the
usual fairness of your policy will permit
you to present both sides.
It is now more than five years ago
that Judge Kennedy, Mrs. Draper Smith
and other social workers went before the
school board with a plea for the estab
lishment of a "special" school a school
to fit the boy that does not fit the sys
tem, which might work "higher up the
stream" and prevent many from drift
ing Into the Juvenile court.
The proposition could not then make
headway against the very argument you
now, with the tremendous force or
editorial opposition of a great newspaper.
bring against the proposed enterprise.
In these -five years SS0 years of Omaha
boyhood have been passed In Kearney.
That Is, 1X1 boys have spent somewhat
more than two years each la tbe state
school. Tbe most enthuslastlo friend of
that Institution will not cla'm that It
would not have been better tor any one
of these boys to have found adjustment
earlier and avoided the tremendous risk
of that experience, even If today finds
him on the high road of good citizenship.
My experience with boys of the Juvenile
court leads- me to believe that especial
attention given to a boy, when he bcglDs
to find the regular school Irksome, would
be wise and economical.
To endeavor to do this Is merely a de
mand of advancing- civilization. There
are still .tribes ot halt-dvfllsed people
who desert their sick, believing- them to
be possessed of eril spirits. CtvOlxation.
however, expends much of Its talent anc
riches tn the eCfort to, eradicate cause
and cure disease.
One of the Important duties bf the adult
world is the guidance and education of
the rising generation. When you say
"bad boy" you sims, primarily, that
bis parents and teachers do not under
stand, they are not "up to their Job."
Some children are easier to core for than
others, aa some conditlona producing 111
health are more, easily eradicated than
others. It Is when the case Is especially
difficult or, perhaps, we should -say dif
ferent, that means out ot the ordinary
may be required. Just as a child when
seriously 111 must be sent to the hospital
8a It Is wise to provide a special school
for those whoso needs are rot met by
"the system." Call' It' nn "Irregular
school" If you wish, a "hospital school"
If you like, or a "repairing station" If
you must but a "bad boy school" Is a
misnomer. Any child really well takm
care of Is "good," and any child or set
of children may be so badly cared for
as to be speeolly classed "bad."
Mr. Editor, Omaha Is sorely In need of
the "special school." It will be no more
of a disgrace to belong to It than to go
to a hospital and no more difficult t6
convince fond mothers of its necessity,

Stop Defacing- Terrace.
OMAHA, May 4. To the Editor of The
Bee: Thanks are certainly due our
mayor for his commendable efforts to
mako the dty of Omaha mpre presentable.
Now If he will go a step futher and
make it a misdemeanor to go up and
down other people terraces when steps
have been provided, he would do a better
thing yet There may be some people In
our city who rather admire the pretty
yellow dandelion, but surely there are
none so depraved as to like to see terraces
and lawns that landlords and home
owners have with -much expense and
trouble, graded and sodded, filed with
holes on dirt-washed paths, making a
forlorn and neglected appearance. Milk
men, Ice men and grocer boys go up and
down six days m the week, fifty-two
weeks In the year. Gas men twice a
month, electrlo- light men once every
month, big dogs and children many times
a day, peddlers and agents, ad distributors
and others nuisances many times a week,
and there you are, and what can you do
but sit back and look on and perhaps
each year endeavor to repair damages.
If a man steals your hoe or rake or
lawn mower you can buy others, but If
he defaces your premises It Is often be
yond replacing. M.

Water board, In order to make this
monster come to time, In giving relief
to consumers for a necessity such as
water, which at the present rate Is al
most a luxury.
Did not the people of Omaha sanction
the movement by voting bonds to take
over the water plant from the corpora
tion, with the idea for their mutual
benefit? Now wherefrom has this al
mighty Water board got this' eternal rule
to the contrary?
Are the members of the Water board
not paid fancy salaries for their serv
ices to the people at large or is this the
so-called home rule we hear so much
about, they want to Introduce?
.The decent people ot Omaha havo In
the past accomplished many things that
aro commendable and will no doubt get
the upper hand in time to chop off tho
heads of Inconslstents such as this Water
board, or any other board for that mat
ter, by the medium of the ballot If they
only so frame their charter now pend
ing and then the people will havo Omaha
at heart. Boost for It or boast what a
nice city it is to live In.
