The History Writers.
Omaha Is about to havo tho honor
of entertaining tho Mississippi Val
loy Historical association, which is
made up of tho history writers and
the history teachers of this great
section of our country. All the ter
ritory wost of the Mississippi has
only been opened up to settlement
In a period within the memory of
people still living. It has had
tremendous influonco In shaping tho
course of tho nation, and is rich In
materials for tho history of the fu
ture. Right horo In Omaha, and
our surroundings, we have rich his
toric background almost as un
worked ns the virgin prairie. If this
meeting, In addition to making the
historians acquainted with us,
sorves to stimulate, as It should,
our own interest in our local his
tory, It will bo doubly worth whllo.
Alaskan Coal Lands.
Olfford Plnchot la again urging
the Importance of the government
holding onto the AlaBkan coal lands,
declaring that If It had rotatned pob-
sesslon of tho great Pennsylvania
fields "there would never have been
such political corruption as existed
In that state."
Aside from that hypothesis, an
other phaso of the coal land ques
tion suggests itself as Important, and
that Is that if the government con
tinues ownership of the land., it
should lose no time- In developing
tho mines, as the coal Is needed
qulto as much as Alaskan develop
ment. The sorry fact Is that thus
far congress has been terribly re
miss In Its duty In Alaska, neither
providing n suitable form of govern
ment for the peninsula, nor taking
any reasonable steps to exploit tho
natural resources, which President
Taft repeatedly urged.
Wo should, indeod, hold onto tho
prodigious mlnoral woalth of Alaska,
but wo should also develop indus
try. Thon there would bo no oc
casion for turning the resources of
tho country over to private Interest.
Underwood Boom Premature.
Tho cstoemed Now York Herald
and Baltimoro Sun havo begun to In
flato an Underwood boom, which
might prove promaturo, In vlow of
tho fact that tho roost Important
test of Mr. Underwood's official
career is yet to come In the tariff
law bearing his name. It would be
no disparagement to Mr. Underwood
and might bo a groat boon to
defer his 1916 presidential nomina
tion until his free trado moasure
had tlmo to run tho gamut ot re
sults. Tho last democratic tariff
law, It may be recalled, had a rather
doloterlous effect on certain distin
guished aspirations and opportuni
ties. It may ho too early to say jttHt
what otfect tho forthcoming law will
havo in that direction.
There, Is one name that continues to
crow bigger and brighter before the
country all the time, The. coun
try takes off Its hat In admiration of
Mr. Undorwood.
Thus shouts tho Bun, and tho
Herald echoes the cry. In addition
to possible promaturlty, is not this
leso majesto, or do the democrats
take tho one-term idea seriously?
Uni'jiitg Effects of Good Boads.
Charles Henry Davis ot Cam
bridge. Mass., believes in good roads
as an anttdoto for war and goes so
far as to assort that hod they boon
common moro than a halt century
ago,' tho civil war might have been
averted.
That Is saying a good deal for tho
movomont now making substantial
headway In this country, and yot it
will not bo denied that tho logic of
good roads Is toward national unity,
Whon our country Is thoroughly
crlss-crossod by a system ot modern
highways reducing distances and
bringing communities into closer
contact, ot course tho effect will bo,
or should be, a closer unity among
tho people.
The railroad's value In this rela
tion has been fully conceded. As a
means or communication It is a
prlmo factor in tho civilization and
national unity of any country, and
had railroads been numerous in tho
days when wars were, many of
tho latter might havo been avoided,
This emphasis ot the importance of
good roads Is the chief ono, for it
comprehends such advantages as Im
proved transportation facilities with
their economic Improvements.
Tammany defeats Mitchell.
One ot the most brazan examples
of tba offoct of political pl-acy comes
to light In the rejectlpn of John
Mitchell as state labor commissioner
In New York, The governor nom
inated him, Tammany objected to
him and the senate refused to con
firm. Tammany could not use him',
but evidently it does use tho senate.
or the people would have had Mitch'
ell.
It la & tlno come-off when the most
populous and wealthy state thus
stands aside at tho Insolent behest
of an organized political oligarchy.
Mitchell's character Is Irreproach
able, his fitness above par; he was
the governor's preferred candidate
and the peoplo's choice. But he did
not measure down to the depth ot
Tammany cupidity, so ho would
not do.
The one consolation Is that this
leaves Mitchell, a national character,
still available for national service.
He Is too much needed, anyway, In
the forum of national utility to be
claimed as the servant ot any ono
sUta,

since It does not deny tho right ot

to bo satisfactory to American farmers

appendix to the anti-Japanese future In

that state's board of labor statistics that
the Japanese and .Chinese laborers there

A Correction Accorded.
BETHANY, Neb., May 6.-T0 the Ed
itor ot The Beo: You were evidently
not fully Informed when you rrinted the
following statement In yesterday's Bee!
That Imported evangelist seems to have
muae ir&CKs away from Lincoln while
the battle was still raging And without
waiting for the finish. The only rational
presumption Is that some other city,
worse even Jihan Lincoln, stood In greater
and more urgent need of his services.
Tho facts of the case are thai Dr. Sco
vllle and a portion of his evangelistic
company are still In Lincoln assisting
tho "dry" forces In the campaign which
he helped Inaugurate during the evange
Ilstlo meetings closed some ten days ago.
Dr. Scovllle has spoken to several meet
ings during the last week. He. along with
others, addressed meetings at the city
Auditorium Saturday evening and Sun
day afternoon. In vlow of these facts It
Is hardly fair to say that the "Importod
evangelist seems to have mode tracks
away from Lincoln while the battle was
stilt raging." C. E. LBMMON.
Christian Thoughts.
BRADS HAW, Neb., May 6. To the
Editor of The Bee: As your "Letter
Box" seems to be open to all and all
subjects, we have a few views on the
subject of religion that wo wish to of
fer, not that wo expect them to meet
with general approval, but with a hope
that they may create some thinking
along this line of thought no matter
whether It be to criticise or otherwise.
What wo shall say Is from a Bible stand
point aa we view them. They are not
new, nor ore they unusual, or should not
be, and are absolutely free from skep
ticism. We have chosen for our scripture text
Mat 10:8j "Freely ye have received,
freely give." The greatest philanthropist
this world haa ever known came In tho
person of Christ Jesus, who gave to all
freely who would receive, tho greatest of
all gifts, eternal life that most blessed
ot all treasures, of which he so earnestly
advised, Mat 6:20, "Lay up for your
selves treasures In heaven where neither
moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where
thieves do not break through nor steal."
In this twentieth century every thing has
reached the level of a money or commer
cial baslB and religion has not escaped
this same level, which the writer does
not think Is truly scriptural, and he holds
that It is wrong to place a money or
commercial value upon the disseminating
of religious knowledge and scriptural
truths. Commercialism belongs to the
world, the flesh and the devil, of which
Christ hath sold; "If ye live after the
flesh ye shall die." Therefore does It
not seem reasonable that ns salvation la
the free gttt of God to man through the
sacrificial offering ot His only begotten
son, that we ought not to place It upon
the world's money basis? Can we hope?,
when rendering spiritual labor among our
fellow men that God will greatly bless
our labors If a money consideration Is
even a part ot the end sought? To help
a brother man In a material way, of
courso, material means must be used;
but wo cannot buy salvation for our fel
low men, neither can we hire some ono
to bring it to us, see Isaiah 53:3 and 65:
1, i, 8. Wo cannot place a commercial
rating upon religion, and we ore warned
by Christ that we cannot Mat 6:21 It
seems to the writer that we do not read
Christ's sermon on the mount right If
we read It at all. The dominant thought
and desire of tho churches of this twen
tieth century Is greater numbors, greater
wealth and greater popularity; neglecting
scriptural holiness and spiritual right
eousness. Dr. Scovllle, who has been
recently holding union meetings In Lin
coln, has pointed out some of these
dangers In one of his evangelistic ser
mons, a short extract from which we
toko the liberty to quote. Mr, Scovlllo
says: "We sometimes let learning be
come our God, We become too cultured;
In our educational life to keep the re
ltgtdus uppermost We trust In our
selves. Some are so respectable, nice,
that they cannot get enough fire In their
religion to keep them warm." "For
malism Is eating tho llfo out ot the
churches. You can freeze the church
and the young convert by mere religious
formalism. We pay our singers and our
workers ,(and Dr. Scovllle might havo
said our evangelists), and feel that we
can pay all our way Into heaven, when
the only thing Jesus wants Is ourselves."
Thus wo find that formalism and com
mercialism, when applied to religion, ac
cording to Dr. Scovllle, are twin sisters,
and go hand In hand to the shameful ex
tent that the Christian religion Is almost
a mockery In some ot the present day
churches.
Tho writer Is not a member of any
church, but he Is Interested In all of
them, and believes himself to be strictly'
orthodox, because he believes In a re
ligion such as Christ taught Nlcodemus
a religion that makes a sinner about face,
a religion or love, a love tnai "tninxeta
no evil," whose church Is the realm ot
God's universe, a love so tender and so
responsive that It creates a well-wishing
heart for all mankind and their salva
tion. JOHN B. DBY.

WHEN I GO HOME.
Marianne ' P-armlngham.
When I go home it will be evening,
And I shall hear my own dear peopl
sing;
And see the lighted rooms, and take my
place
As one of them, In that sweet time o:
grnce.
When I go homi I shall bo very tired
Of struggling for tho things that I de
sired; '
But I shall be content to .end my quest
Gaining the best things peace and lovt
and rest.
When I go home how sorry I shall ba
Not to havo brought more treasures bad
with mel
Yet, though I be a failure, worn and poor.
They will not turn me from my Father's
door.
When I go home I shall be travel-stained
For winds havo beaten me, and storms
havo rained.
And earth has clung to me by vale and
hill,
But they will take me In and love me still
When I go home Oh, wM It not be
Heaven
To bo restored, accepted, loved, forgiven?
Sorrow and sighing are for those who
roam;
I shall have found my bliss when I go
home.

the most popular because nobody can

this through your hair, taking one small
strand at a tlmo. Do this tonight, and
by morning the gray hair disappears and
after another application It Is restored
to Its natural color.

sides prevents dandruff; Itching ucalp
and falling hair. Here, you gray-haired
folks, get busy; look years younger.
