OMAHA, Aug. 4.-To the Editor ot
The .Beo: "I don't see no p'lnts about
that frog that's any different from any
other frog," said tho ensual wayfarer as
he wandered Into the Calaveras drinking
place and commenced the episode which
Mark Twain Immortalized. The lineal
descendants of that casual wayfarer seem
to have gathered In Qmaha for the pur
pose ot taking part In the discussion ot
the pending gas franchise. And they
can't seo "no p'lnts about that franchlso
that's no different from any other fran
chise," and with the peculiar penchant
of their class, they oppose It just be
causo It's a franchlso.
One of the "p'lnts" they dwell on Is
tho matter of Income to the company
Members of the Ileal Estate exchango
make great todo over the Inordinate
profit of 6 per cent the company seek, to
gain. I can recall onco hearing one ot
the bellwenthers of the Ileal Estate ex
chango say In course of a private con-
ersatlon that he would not touch "any
proposition" that did not net him at
least 20 per cent and that he did not
then havo a piece of Omaha property
that wtis not paying him better than 20
per cent. I know another real estate
man who loss than six years ago was
working, on salary for an Installment
book concern, but who Is now driving
nis own automobile about the city, and
It's not a cheap machine, either. Another
concern of real estate men advertise that
It will guarantee' Investors 7 per cent
net: and the list might bo strung out to
an Inordinate length.
The "p'lnt" is: Is a man a nntriot
when ho seeks to make 20 per cent on
real estate Investments, and a criminal
.when he Invest in gas stock and asks
for 6 per cent? OLD FOGY.

many or them are living In a soldjers

And all this money that has been annm.
prlated to soldiers to go to Gettysburg
to have a reunion Bnd even to the once
hated, and despised, opponents, the confed
erates, makes me tired and more than
tired, too. when I think and know of sol.
aiera .who served In the war, -whose ser

honoraby discharged and are old and
crippled and In soma case, poor, who
nave never oeen anie to get a pension on

gara to Being sworn. In. The bill giving
them a military standing so theycould be
pensioned could havo passed In congress
when Joe Cannon waa speaker, but. for
th reason that he was opposed to It and
would never let it come up for discussion.
There seems to be nothing doing now to
help out these old soldiers and ere long
they will be whero they will not need any
help. Some have already passed on who
hoped and hoped tn vain tor a little as
sistance to soften their lot In life. One
poor old bachelor used to come to our
houso regularly to nee If anything waa
done yet for him. His only support was
from singing war songs In stpres and on
the street, and taking up a collodion; he
carried his few old rags and song books
in a grain sack. If a man can get wings
for bravery, he has his now for wo know
when he 'ceased to come that, It was all
over with' him.
Another went to Montana to get some
land In his old days, but could not stand
the vigor, or the -climate", so he tod- has
gone to a better land, .So they are-passing
one by one.
My husband' has been a cripplo for
twenty-three years: ha. poor health and
ha. simply given up all hopes ot a pension
after trying for twenty-fiv year, to get
the disability removed. 81eeplng on the
froxen ground, standing guard day and
night, eating hard tack and wormy bacon
are not very conductive to health. So
