Seeing a Light.
Tho Dee Is glad to find one of our
amiable contemporaries, heretofore
lined up as a champion of the Water
board In its arbitrary exactions, see
ing a light, and furnishing an argu
ment to relnforco The Bee's porslst
ont demand for lower water rates.
Tho proposal to sccuro municipal
ownership of tho various public utili
ties by levying special occupation;

excessivo charges for water It de
nounces as "wrong In principle and
unjust," because compelling the pres
ent generation to tax Itself with the
entlro cost of theso plants for tho
benefit almost entirely of future gen
erations. It further declares:
The fairest way yet devised for a city
to acquire public utilities la to purchase
them with bonds which need not be pnld
off for forty, or fifty, or sixty years.
Tills puts a portion of the expense of ac
quiring" such plants upon future genera
tions and permits the present generation
to reap some of the benefits of mu
nicipal ownerahlp through low rates and
better sen-Ice. Thus the financial opera
tion of our water plant should be so
planned that It will not accumulate one
cent of surplus above operating and sink
ing fund requirements. All the profit
should go to consumers In lower raten
and better service.

Fighting Quack Dooton.
Tho Chicago Tribune, which 1

Undoubtedly It will, but humanity
ould wait in vain if It had to de-
pond exclusively on the reputable
physicians to purge the profession.
The Tribune probably has learned, as
has The Bee in a raid on similar
akera la Omaha, that it cannot look
for active or actual co-operation from

Crazy Quilt Tariff Sheets.
In a speech on tho floor of the
house dealing with freight rates and
their proposed revision, Congressman
Ocorge J, Klndel et Colorado briefly

railroad tariffs, showing that whllo

sheet of paper, ours la spread over
yards of pages In a craty-qullt fash-
Ion which Is so complicated as to be
incomprehensible to the average lay

tact that we maintain an Interstate
Commerce commission with almost
plenary powers, at an annual outlay
Why le this? If railroad tariff
sheets can be made simple, brlot and

the cray-autlt method? Perhaps
a vast amount te the rallreads. There

madness. A federal statute requires
the publication ot certain freight
schedules in depots where "he who
runs may read." That is a joke. Tho
average man might gaze on one ot
these contrivances until he was stone
blind without getting a practical idea
of what he was looking at.

OMAHA, Oct. .-To the Editor of The
Bee: It appears that our Illustrious water
boss is not satisfied with the raw deal
he contrived to band to the Omaha popu.
lace concerning; tho water rates. The pur
chase ot the water plant by the city be
ing an alt around success (for him), he's
advising us of & safe and easy way to
acquire other public utllttte-nd get
stung In the manner originated by him.
I wonder what that man thinks we are?
That the management of the water plant
by the Water board Is very disappoint
ing, Is a mild expression and none can
deny It. All those pre-election promises
of chesper rates, etc, and now an auto
cratic and arbitrary way of running
things. And most objectionable of all,
this unreasonable minimum monthly rate.
I do not think that the old water com
pany's charge of 35 cents per 1.000 gallons
was excessive. It's what we're paying
now. Then we were not compelled to pay
for water we did not use. as we are
now. Do you see the advantage of public
ownership of publlo utilities In this easel
Looking over nty water statements since
last March I find that up to this month
1,003 cublo feet ot water waa used up In
my household. At 2"4 cents per 100 feet
straight (no discount whatever) this would
amount to $2.63, whereas I must pay J171,
according to the. Water board's figure
Oh, yes, there It. 20 per csnt discount
(most graciously conceded by his ma
jesty), but the well-to-do-people, with In
comes of 10Q a month and up, get the
benefit of' that, beside the cut rate tor
greater amount ot water used, and not
the poor dovll, the common, ordinary
menial. This Infamous minimum rate is
directed chiefly at us ' wops." forcing
us to pay double for IW feet, which Is
alt we use on an average a month.
Public servants, these water commis
sioners, all right Long may they live
and prosper. MRS. ED. JCARHAN.
Another Version ef the Fight.
OMAHA, Oct. 30. To the Editor of The
Beei Allow me to say a few words about
the free-for-all fight In which OLeary
got a broken Jaw, so that I may put the
Clearmonts in tne rignt ana wieary in
the wrong. I am a member of the op-
ooslng team, so I speak unprejudiced.
This Is how It started; Three boys
O'Leary was one of them were trying
to pick up a quarrel with another lad.
Tho latter told them that he wasn't look
ing for trouble and waa trying to back
away. O Leary, seeing mis, urgeo, one
of his friends to "poke him In the jaw."
His friend did it and the fight began.
After several minutes' fighting O'Leary's
friend was beaten up and quit.
O'leary then threw off his coat an'l
rushed at the victor, shouting. "I'll finish
it for him. You'll have to ngnt me nowr
The other lad, who was a good deat
smaller, tried to run away, but two boys,
the two who were with O'Leary, caught
him and beat him across his eyes-witnesses
say they used brass knuckles.
After running several yards, the lad
turned back and yelled, "Help! I can't
see. I'm Winded. Oh, save me." He
was staggering and blood was runnlni
from his eyes. Meanwhile, one ot the
spectators, Who had seen the beglnnlnir
of It, tried to stop O'Leary. and did 10
by a crack oh his Jaw.
. While tho lad' was caUuig for help, his
assailants ran away, but were caught
and were administered a gued beating.
O'Leary was beaten up more severely
when It wgs thought that the lad waa
blinded, The latter was Immediately
hurried away In an auto and was given
medical attention. Me was only tem
porarily blinded and in beginning to see,
though his face Is badly swollen. So you
see, 00sry deserved all he got. and
Instead of being the "peacemaker." he
was the urger-cn.
The quarrel did not begin as the re
sult of an argument over the strength
of the two teams, as your paper stated,
but Just because O'Leary wanted to plek
a quarrel. The score was then 25 to 0
In favdr of the Clearmonts; not In our
fsvor. as wss reported, and they are tho
ones who saved O'Leary from a severer
beating. Another error. O'Leary did not
fly to the nearest bouse" unUl he heard
that he had blinded the lad.
I hone that you will lace the Clear.

SILVER CREEK, Kb Oct. -To the
Edltqr of The Bee: .While In early years
I was strongly opposed to woman suf
frage, later, and until recently. I looked
upon the agitation of that question with
Indltferencs. considering that practically
II would make little Difference whether
women voted or not Now J am mer
strongly opposed to -woman suffrage
than ever before, and 'm disposed, to do
anything and everything X can honorably
and consistently do to aereai it.
And what Is the cause of this morfe
recent change of heart on my partT I
answer, the English suffragette. To my
mind, the outrageous and utterly In
defensible Work of those misguided
females demonstrates that women are by
nature unfit for the affairs, of govern
ment It shows that they, far more than
men, are Illogical and unreasoning; that
they are comparatively destitute ot that
judicial poise .which all In authority should
have, and that they are governed almost
wholly by their sympathies, their passions,
their prejudices, their likes and dislikes,
If the suffragettes will attempt to obtain
the ballot by creating a reign ot terror
through a resort to arson, destruction of
the mall, smashing ot windows, personal
assaults on individuals, disorderly oe
monstratlens and the like, have we not a
right to presume that If they had the
ballot and should find themselves In a
minority on any question dear to their
hearts, they would resort to like methods
to obtain their ends? If voted down In
the House of Commons their recourse
would bs to screechlngs and howling,
hatpins and pulling of hair. Invectives
snd tears. Could gallant Englishmen,
worthy descendants ot those knights nt
old, who would shed their heart's blood
for a lady's glove, stand that sort ot
racket? Nay, verily! They would prefer,
rather, to try titles with a Maxim gun.
or take tbelr chances before a broadside
from a dreadoaught But women are
women the world over, and what we
find thsm doing In England we have &
right to believe them capable ot doing
In America. No decent man wilt fight
woman; he cannot resist her ears, and
the enfranchisement of women means.
ultimately, the disfranchisement and
abasement ot man. Quite on a par with
the work of the suffragettes would be
the act of a wife tn burping her unwilling
nusoana s nouse because tie uia net. im
mediately comply with her rtqwst to"
buy her a slit skirt
The great leader (I will not say "In
famous" leader) of the suffragettes,
Mrs. Emmellnt Pankhurst. Is now In the
United States to collect money from her
sympathizers (the woman suffragists) to
help ber to continue In England her ne
farious warfare ot the faggot She ought
not to have beep permitted, to Jand. The
emigration authorities In New York
were right and ought to have been Up
held and doubtless would have been up
held except that President Wilson feared
female votes In some states and famalo
Influence In all.
In giving orders that Mrs. Pankhurst
should be admitted, President Wilson
claimed to be In doubt as to whether
she (the leader of an organization of In
cendiaries) was guilty of "moral tur
pitude," and gave her the benefit of the
doubt (!) Omitting all questions of honor
and Integrity of character, does Presi
dent Wilson think It good policy to In
sult the Intelligence of the mate voter
In the hope of thereby escaping the
vengeance of the female voter!
If, as Is claimed In behalf ot Mrs. Pank
hurst, burning an ancient castle Is not
proof of moral turpitude because, as Is
alleged, a revolution Is now going on tn
England, It would not be proof of moral
turpitude on her part had she with her
own hand thrust a dagger Jn the heart
ot the .prime minister, or even to tbe
heart of the king-. And this Is the sort
of logic, and this tho sort of statesman.
ship that Is now at the head of this
great nation ot ours, and that Is now
playing wth fjro by meddling In the
domestlo affairs of a neighboring state.
.This act of President Wilson In ad
mitting Mrs. Pankhurst Is likely, In the
future, to rise up to plague him. Here
after any incendiary, murderer, or
regicide of Europe may properly claim
an asylum In the United States on tho
ground that In his own country there was
a revolution on and that he was not
guilty of moral turpitude. For It Js. al
ways true, In all civilized countries that
there are plenty of people In rebellion
against the constituted authorities.
But, If, as President Wilson would have
It Mrs. Pankhurst Is In rebellion against
th British crown, 'What right had he, at
this stage ot the game, to recognise her
as a belligerent and permit her to come
here to obtain money with which to go
back to England and perhaps burn, or
dynamite Westminster abbey, the tower
of London, fcr St Faul's cathedral? It
was, at best, an unfriendly act toward
a friendly power.
The sympathy they have shown for
female lawlessness In England wll tend
strongly to the defeat ot the woman
