Sulzer'i Sad Ending.
By returning a vordlct of guilty
against Governor Sulzer, tho major
ity of th6 court of impeachment havo
concladod that tho evidence was suf
ficient to warrant his removal from
offico on general grounds, and this
verdict occasions no surprise. Sui
ter's election to defend himself on
tochnical, rather than to meet the
Issues, with tho usual effect of mich
defenses upon public confidence,
pavod tho way for this outcome. Not
yet has ho denied tho main charge,
that of converting campaign funds
to his private uses and falsifying his
expenso account roports; his defense
Is, that tho acts complalnod of
wero done prior to his Inauguration,,
and therefore do not constitute
ground for Impeachment,
Regardless of tho decision, how
ever, or tho fact that Sulzer's convic
tion does not carry with it a perma
nent disqualification for holding
offico in tho Htato, his political doom
would certainly appear to bo sealed.
The ovldonce against him is of such
a character as to convince most peo
ple of his total unfitness for an office
of public trust. The sad ending of
his career Is all tho moro Ignomini

Segregation and Dispersion.
Dr, Howard A. Kolly, the famous

ing tho social ovll into tho rcsldonce
districts. Wo would liko vory much
to accept this statement, dosplto tho
fact that Omaha's csporlenco is to
tho contrary. For support of his
position Dr. Kolly cltos Wilmington,
N. C, aa having successfully accom
plished tho task. By tho last consus
Wilmington is a town of 25,748 in
habitants nil quite as large as
Council Bluffs of which 47 per

their vown sogrogatod district. Bal

Champ Olark on Ghautalking.
Speaker Clark's position on lec
turing for nionoy whllo paid by tho
people to attend to their business at
Washington Booms perfectly sound
aa stated In this letter wrltton to
BQsse San Francisco parties to whom
he had engaged for a few lectures:
It ia not tight as I aeo It, for a man
to take the government money for dis
charging the duties ef an office and then
neglect the duties of that office Twice
the democrats of the house have bestowed
upon me tile highest honor In their gift
anil I don't proposo to ncgloct the,.1luUef
ot wai ouice 10 go on me iociuts jh in
form and lecture for money, It 'does not
seem fair to them or to the country.
It would be Interesting to have
the views ot Secretary Bryan to set
alongside of those ot Champ Clark.
Of course, Mr. Bryan, with his rare
gift ot phrasing arguments, might
bo ablo to raako perfectly plausible
tho other Mdo of tho point raised by
Clark that, "It Ib not right as I boo
it tor a man to take tbo government
money for discharging tho dutioa ot
nn office and then ncgloct the duties
ot that office," Mr. Bryan, at
whom Mr. Clark undoubtedly alms
this fine dart ot innuendo, would
probably say that ho can lecturo, as
ho has been doing, without neglect
ing the duties of the office, which'
the government pays him to per
form, Because a mm of ordinary
capacities cannot do two things at
once, It does not follow that one of
Mr. Bryan's abilities must fall. But
perhaps Champ Clark's high cost ot
living does net call for more than
a $12,000 income.
It seems necessary from time to
time to give attention to the practice
of begging on tho streets. Should
it be permitted promiscuously! Most
people think not. Social workers
are convinced it encourages impos
tors and destroys the self-respoct
even of tho worthy. Deserving poor
or cripples should bo carod for in
proper ways and not left on the
streets as objects of a disdaining
charity. Where fakers and dead-
beats are discovered plying their
graft on the streets, they, too, should
be attended by ways mode and pro
vided especially for their cases. The
publlo thoroughfares are no place
for either cIsbs.
Of course, no drug store should be
permitted to do a saloon business
without a liquor license, but the fact
that some do should not blind us to
the fact that the saloon lid-Utters

In Other Lands
llrltlah Land Reform.
What may be considered the principal
Issue on which the British liberal will
wage the next campaign, probably a year
hence, waa keynoted In the land reform
speech of Chancellor Lloyd George at
Bedford, last Snturday. Home rulo,
church dlptnblthment and manhood
suffrage, the leading reform measures
before the present Parliament, will have
been disposed of at the next session
which begins In the middle of January,
and the decks cleared for action In the
battle for control of the next Parliament
The exact nature of the reform proposed
by the chancellor Is not Indicated 1 by
cable reports ot his speech. But that a
radical overturn of existing conditions
will be attempted Is fairly certain. It the
lberals win In tho coming contest "Land
lordism Is the greatest monopoly In tills
land," said Lloyd George, "and the people
are trusting to the government to put
forth Its strong right arm to lift them
from the mire." Tho speaker went on
to show that the percentage of cultivated
land in Great Britain Is lower than In
any other nation In Europe and agri
cultural laborers receive lower wages and
work longer hours than any others. Ac
cording to Bountree and Kendall's "How
the Laborer Lives," an authority on tho
subject there are In England and Wales
457,000 workers on the land who are ovei1
21 years of age. Of this total about 4I.CO0
earn aa much as a pound (S) a week.
Yet the authors ot the book estimate that
ftfs tH Is tho medium weekly wage capa
ble of maintaining a family of five per
sona In physical efficiency. This Ib but
an Inkling of the conditions which the
government proposes to chango for tho
better. If sustained ntiho polls. It moons
another last ditch fight on the part of
tho landlords, a fight the landlords foar,
and have strlvon desperately to avert
I'Uter nn n Dtvcmlon.
There la not a shadow of doubt that the
landlord aristocracy of Great Britain
dread a campaign on the Issue ot "freer
land for freo men." They have not tor
gotten, nor are they likely to forget
while the taxgatheror makes his annual
rounds, that "Lloyd George's tax reform
measures shifting tho cost of govern
ment to the shoulder of tho rich swept
tho country as no other Issue In recent
times, and stripped the reactionary House
of Lords of Its veto power. It I not
surprising, therefore, that desperate ef
forta are being .jriado to keep the publlo
mind filled with minor troubles, hoping
thereby to restore the reactionaries to
power. This feature of British politics Is
Illuminated by the London correspond
ent of the New York Post "Does It
occur to any reader of the Ulster cable
grams," he writes, "to ask himself why
this particular moment should be chosen
for the Carson agitation? On the face
of It, all this grand high pressure of bus
tle and excitement seems absurdly pre
mature. It la a long time yet before the
horrors which the Orangemen fear could
possibly descend upon their distressed
country. The next session does not begtn
until the middle of January. Tbe home
rule bill will then havo to go through a
long debate In the commons and the
upper house can consume much time In
considering tho measure. Tho protesting
die-hards are already shouting at the
tops. ofk their voices. . It,ls,,beyond the
power et human nature to keep up this
high note for several months at a
s.retch." Why then was this particular
time Chnfln? TIa n ry

deny and have enacted laws harply

LOVE WILL FIND A WAY.
Old English Author Unknown.
Over tha mountains
And over the waves.
Under the fountains
And under the graves;
Under floods that are deepest
Which Neptune obey;
.Over rocks that are steepest
Love will find out the way.
Where there Is no place
For the glowworm to He;
Where there Is no space
For receipt of a fly:
Where the midge dares not venture
Lest herself fast she lay;
If love come, he will enter
And soon find out his way.
You may esteem him
A child for hla might;
Or you may deem him
A coward from his flight;
But It she whom love dotli honor
Be conceal'd from the day,
Set a thousand guards upon her,
Lovo will find out the war.
Some think to lose him.
By having him confined;
And some do suppose him,
Poor thlnss to be blind
But If ne'er so closo yo wall hlni,
Do the best that you may.
Blind love, It ao ye call him,
Will find out hi wny.
You may train tho eagle
to stoop to your fist;
Or you may Inveigle
Tho phoenix of tho east:
The lloncs ye may more her
to give o'er her prey;
But you'll ne'er stop a lover;'
He will find out his way.
