That Massachusetts man who boasts et living on 9 cente a day. has nothing on the fellow who is living on his kinfolks." ' "' The old adage, "counting your chick before the eggs are hatched," strangely enough antedated the day of col storage. At that, It to doubtful whether Colonel Goethals' great Panama slide really compare with Ty Cobb's fade-away at second. Now, the point Is, will the next president of our School board glvo as much time and energy to the work with no pay, but kicks? Huerta Is like, a man in the midst of R prairie flro and displays about the same sort of blind tenacity as the boy who stood on tho burning deck. The teamsters' strike at' Indianap olis Includes the chauffeurs as well as tke wagon drivers, which, of course, puts a different aspect on It. Nearly M8 violators of the automobile peed laws Jammed the police courts to day. New Yotk news Item. Let, the speed maniacs of other cities, catch the force of this. OUr democratic United States sen ator declares in one breath that the "ideal system" Is a central bank, and la the next breath that he dare not favor it. The Chicago Evening Post seems to hit It right by suggesting that the alimony income tax be collected from, the corespondent to get It at the "source." In asking $145,000,000 for now dreadnaughts Secretary Daniels, wo assume, does not let the right hand of the cabinet body know what tho left one doe(h. Of course, Sutler's flaying of Tam many and Murphy put here 1,600 miles from tho scene can have little effect on them, but It ought to help the box office recoup. Mayor Shank of Indianapolis com pletely forfeited his chance on the Chautauqua circuit by voluntarily re signing instead of going through with an impeachment trial. The Nebraska State Pardon board has turned -down fourteen applica tions for paroles. There must be a screw loose somewhere when the ma chine falls to work to that extent A contributor to our letter box ob jects to pacing his telephone bill In advance. Wonder1 what he has to say to the new rule of the Water board requiring tenants to make pre payment of. $5. which. Is equivalent -to paying ten months in advance at the minimum rate. The Menace of the Strike. One of the by-products of the In dianapolis teamsters' strike Is tho temporary paralysis of the garbage collection in the city, threatening nu unsanitary condition. A mitigating circumstance, of course, Is afforded In the cool weather, which would not be possible If the strlko had occurred during the warmer season. In addi tion to this, other business is crip pled and personal safety to some ex tent Jeopardized. Yet we progressive, Ingenlus Amer icans tolerate this medieval, semi- barbaric system of Industrial warfarn Instead of providing a peaceful meanB of adjusting labor disputes. Tho fault is not wholly on tho strikers. They come In for only their share of tho blame. The omployer must bear hie, too, but tho full onus falls, of course, on "the people," that term with which wo conjuro bo much these days. Everybody Is to blame for not doing something to abolish tho strike and substitute an adequate remedy for It. And the anomaly of it is that we all shun or shirk the duty with ourselves as the chief victims in every strike. "My Section of the Committee." The most significant part of our democratic senator's explanation of the proposed currency legislation Is his repeated reference to "my section of the committee." From tho phraseology employed ono would sup pose that "my section of tho commit teo" wero equivalent to "tho section of tho committee that belongs to mo," and that It carried with it all tho attributes and authority of abso lute ownership, Tho fact that this section of tho scnato currency com mittee consists of republicans and progressives who have kindly per mitted the only recalcitrant democrat, to Join them, nnd have lot him bo their mouthpiece for fear ho might othorwlso slip his trolley, seems to bo somothtng of which tho lone demo crat Is, consciously or unconsciously, wholly oblivious. Mark it Down, Tako note of tho telegraphic news item about tho decision of the United States supreme court extending mu nicipal regulations over floating bars that sell liquor In harbor waters, and mark It down for futuro reference. Tho court holds against tho claim of Immunity sot up on bohalf of steam boat dram shops going In and out of New Orleans,, and if tho rulo applies thcro It must bo applicable also to xlVor fronts In adjacent wators Hko those, for example, of the Missouri river skirting our own town right here, in Omaha. Clamp the Nebraska .o'clock lid law upon excursion steamers, or even the Iowa 10 o'clock law, and the inducement for moon light picnics loses much of Its glamour with the regular rounders. On the other hand, the enforcement of proper regulations may in time mako tho rlvor steamboat excursion a wholesome and delightful outing, and a popular nnd profitable summer amusoment for folks whoso llmltod pocketbooks prevent them from spending tho heated season at sea shore or mountains. Our Annual Toll of Hunters. One hundred and thirty hunters killed, 135 injured and not dead, is tho open gaming season's toll, ac cording to the record of casualties kept by tho Chicago Tribune. Tho slain are dlvldod between seventeen states and Alaska, the others between nlrte states. Wisconsin 1b the chief offender, with twenty-nine Heaths and twenty-eight Injuries, while Michigan follows a very fair second, Minnesota and North Dakota running a tight race for third. Nobraska does not appear in the lists at all. Of course, some hunters must havo been Injured and perhaps slain this autumn in Nebraska, but. If so, the records are not Included In this com pilation. . . : Dut what a fearful toll of life for so brief a period. It challenges at tention of a people so quick to cry out against all manner of casualties duo to preventable causes, such, for example, as railroad, mine and auto mobile accidents. But there Is still nnother point worthy of mention. How little attention, comparatively, Is attracted by such heavy casualties when they happen to be from, purely private causes and confined to pri vate "circles. It Is so with automo bile accldonts. Relatively they, as hunters' mishaps, excite almost no general comment, but what if the same number of deaths and Injuries occurred In a railroad accident or a mine? Instantly a clamor for better means of safeguarding lite would arise, and Justly so. As to the oth ers, especially the hunters we are apt to sigh and lay It onto certain natural habits of carelessness diffi cult, If not Impossible, to combat. No more so than with respect to public accidents. As a matter of con sistency, we ought to be as alert to correct our own private individual faults as to insist on the correction of those of public agencies. People talk of the need for social work by the church as it it were something new, when in the begin ning of its history the church was bidden to minister to the wants of the widow and orphan. It the lately aroused zeal comes of the lack of such effort, then it must be that the church has simply failed of sufficient response to the original command. looking Backward f t jh5j)sy in Omaha commits rseM Mr nu q e5 DECEMBER 8. Thirty Year a Ago The new Omaha roller skating rink on Capitol avenue was opened with a grand reception. At 9 o'clock Will H. Daniel, "the skating king," gave an exhibition well worth witnessing. Elliott A; Ftnton are the proprietors of the rink and Daniel Is to be the manager, y The school board elected Miss Minnie Wood (at present of the Jackson, street school, to be principal of the Leavenworth tchool, and Miss Anna Foos, at present principal of the East school, to be prin cipal of the North school. Miss Jennie McKoon was elected principal of the East school. Miss Ada M. Turner, prin cipal of the Jackson school and Miss Eva towe principal of the West school. Mlln, the preacher-actor, who was to have appeared at the Academy of Music, has cancelled his engagement. Several plumbers and steamtltters, working for tho Western Steam company, having been cut down to nine hours a day, refused to go to work at 40 cente an hour, demanding 45 cents, A number of carpenters also struck, having been refused a raise from 12.60 to H a day. Borne one has said the first three days In December determine the nature of the winter. If such be the case, what a lovely winter wo are to enjoy. Thomas L. Kimball, assistant general manager of the Union Pacific, has gone south In his private car, which was fit ted out for a three-day ;trlp. A large party of Denver excursionists, many of them city officials, looked over the city, chaperoned by the railroad agents, but were given no official recep tion. The Turnvcreln, at a meeting In Its new hall on Harney and Thirteenth streets, elected the following officers: President, .Philip Andres; vice president, Henry Haubensj turnvolrt, Qeorgo Anthea; recording secretary, Paul Wcln hagenl financial secretary, George Par Islenj treaaurer, dcorge Fruehauf; prop erty man, If.

Frank prane, pastor of First Methodist church, preaching there In the morning on "Tho American Spirit," said Its six chief characteristics were mor ality, llborty, faith, common sence, tol eration nnd intelligence." Churches held a mass meeting that filled every seat In Exposition hall. The purpose was to raise money ' for carry ing on the charitable work begun during the sojourn a year before of the evange list, B. Fay Mills. Singing, by a choir of 100 voices directed by Prof. Lee O. Kratr, enllvoned the meeting. Rev. J. T. Duryca of First Congregational church outlined the work In hand, that 'done during the year and that contemplated for tho future and a hearty spirit was roused for the task, William Wooda whllo hunting near Omaha was killed by the carelessness of his faithful dog. The hunter had sat down to rest, standing his gun beside him. The dog came dashing by, struck tho gun, which toppled over and as It struck the ground, exploded, the shot entering Woods' side. The body was taken to palhoun, where Woods' parents resided. Peter Bouse received word of the death of his brother, John, In Cleveland, whither Peter prepared at once to go. John was known In Omaha, where he had visiter Ills brother. Ten Years Aro Treatment of one waiter In a Dodgo street restaurant was declared' unfair by the Restaurant Walters' union, whloh thereupon Issued an order for a complete walkout of all such workers on the fol lowing morning. ' Judge W. W. Slabaiigh, a zealous Im provement club promoter, pictured a vlson of the Omaha of 1910, showing a city with a huge powor system adequate to the needs of 7SO,0fiO people, a munic ipal heating plant, boulevards skirting tho hills and daleu In and about the city, Farnam street paved with asphalt, church steeples ond towering skyscrapers pierc ing the skyline. James Whltcomb Rlloy entertained as many people ns could conveniently wedge Into the Boyd theater, giving many of his own delightful selections. It was an evening filled with mellow Interest and Joy and fun for all. At the request of the poet. Edward Roscwater presented him. Mr. Rosewater said that Riley had. through his everlasUng poetry, Immor tallxed his name In literature and his memory In the hearts of men. Colored silk petticoats, wide, with deep full flounce, were advertised In The Bes by Mrs. J. Benson at from 1&S7 tollT.W. At a meeting of the West End Improve ment club Chulrman g. P. Bostwlck an nounced that the naming of a committee to solicit funds for the purchase of the Congregational church as a club house would be deferred to another meeting. People Talked About It may be noted with melancholy em phasis that automobile Joy riding too frequently darkens the road to tho cem etery. Colonel Goethals, chief engineer of the Panama canal, declines to risk his repu tation In municipal Jobs, and turns down tho tenders of New York and Dayton. Mrs. Charles K. George, wife of a San Francisco lawyer, has been formally adopted Into the Cree tribe of Indians, whose headquarters la at Alberta, Can ada, and has ben awarded 320 acres - land In the reservation. She has been given the name of Laughing Water. Twin sisters, Misses Clara and Clarissa Pritchard. were graduated from an A bany law school a year ago, but were not allowed to practice, as they were not of age. Last week thej' passed the state bar examination, now being It years of age. Frank A. Munsey has added to his as sortment of magazine grocery store and newspaper enterprises a trust company about to collapse In Washington, guaran teeing several millions of accounts of 66.0M depositors. Washington now re gards Munsey aa a life-saver. Associate Justice Klrby of the Ar kansas supreme court and W. II. Martin. United States district attorney, clinched and went to the mat In a hotel lobby In Uttle Rock. The ring was too crowded for a good exhibition of rough and tum ble. Very little punishment was Inflicted on either side, but the outflow of burning words thrilled the spectators more than thu punches. Just in Mention of Ourselves Orhiln of Nerrsiinper Syndicated. 8. 8. McClure'a Autobiography In Mc Clure'a Magazine. The Idea of forming a newspaper syn dicate first came to me through my re membering my hunger when a boy for something to read. After I had started my newspaper syn dicate, I did manage to get Stevenson and Kipling, Consn Doyle, Stanley Weyman. Qulller-Couch, Stephen Crane, the new writers and the young Idea to the boys on the farm. I 'am always meeting young men In business who say, "Stevenson? Oh, yest I first read Treasure Island' In some newspaper when 1 was a boy. It came out In Installments," or "Why doesn't Qulller-Couch ever wrjte anything as good as 'Dead Man's Rock?' I read that story In The Omaha Bee when I was a kid and I think it the 'best adventure story I ever read." Consolidation That Sticks. Grand Island Independent. Perhaps, too, Omahans will be espe cially thankful this year that Postmaster General Burleson has tacitly put his seal of approval upon the action of his re publican predecessor In merging the South Omaha with the Omaha postotflce and that, at least In this respect, the two cities are one. Nor would.lt be entirely surprising If, merely by way of observa tion. Editor Rosewater of The Bee en Joyed an extra piece of the white. Tht ."Unity of Simplicity. Wallace Irwln'a ."Letters of a Japanese School Boy" In Life. Yesterday, while sneaking like a Japan ese spy through aunty-room of White House. I observed Hon. Woodrow giving very snubbed interview to Hons. Root & Lodge, who studied simplicity under Hon. Vic Rosewater nnd did not learn the fright kind. "Good morning, Mr. Sire!" they say off while approaching the throne. No reply from Hon. Woodrow, who gaze at them with Iced eyes. Silences. Great embarrassment enjoyed by all. O finally Hon. Wilson snltrh out peevly: "How you Insult my majetyl' , "We do not mean this disgust!" thoy say so for humble expression. "Do you not know enough ceremony to take your coats off In the presence of your president?" ho pronounce harshly. They did so. "Bo seated!" continue on that professor. "And now, If you will put your feet on the table, we shall take up the central bank where It was dropped." Twice Told Tales ' Unci n Better Look. They wero talking about the medical fraternity at-a recent social affair, when Senator Benjamin T. Shlvely of Indiana recalled the case of Jake Adams, the farm hand. One day Jake, who was new to the com munity, was taken 111, and his employer sent him with a note to the family doc tor In town. On the following morning the patient returned to the farm consider ably Improved. "You are looking a whole lot better,, Jake," remarked the boss. "Did you have any trouble finding the doctor?" "No, his name was on the door," an swered Jake, "but I didn't go to tho one you sent me to." "You didn't," wonderlngly responded the farmer, ."why not?" "Because," said, Jake, "under his name on tho door It said 10 to 1, while under the name of the other doctor was 8 to 5." "Well, what In the world has that got to do with It?" demanded the puzzled farmer. "Everything'," answered Jake, "8 to S Is a whole lot better chances than 10 to 1, ain't lt?"-Philadclpla Telegraph. What It Conies To. "I've figured the whole thing out, father," said Mabel. 'Tlie car, to begin with will cost J5.000, which at 6 per cent Is i300 a year. If we charge 10 per cent off for depredation It will como to 500 more. A good chauffeur can be had for I1JS n month, or 11,500 a year. I have allowed $10 a week for gasoline and iS for repairs. The chauffeur's uniform and furs will come to about $200. Now, let's see what It comes to: Three hunured plus five hundred "Don't bother, my dear, I know what It comes to," said the old gentleman.

Springfield Republican: The reason why the secretary of war submits armv estl. mates for the coming fiscal year larger ny no.000,00 than the estimates a year ago, may be seen In a southwesterly direction. Chicago Inter Ocean: George Washing ton's personal expense accounts during the revolution amounted to 178,000 and his balance was within 30 cents of rtcht. That Is the only thing about the Father or His Country that looked like 30 cents, Indianapolis News: It's too bad about that mileage. Doubtless some of the con gressmen not only knew Just exactly where they were going to put It, but also that there was a man with a fountain pen and a duly filled in form waiting tor it. Philadelphia Ledger: The bureau of cor porations wants 1600.000 wherewith n l. gin a nation-wide Investigation of trusts. Anybody who can get nothing else to, do always wants to investigate, at a large alary, although a little less Investiga tion and a little more Investing Is what the Industries of the nation, which means the prosperity of the nation, require. Pittsburgh Dispatch: There Is a dispo sition In some quarters to interfere with Mr, Metcalfe's project for polltlcallzlng the Canal son. Some people are so simple as to think that Colonel Goethals knows more about what should be done there than Mr. Metcalfe does, though the tat ter's view Is unhampered by having spent but a few weeks at the spot. Tilings will be In a pretty shape If knowledge In gov ernmental administration Is to be made superior to Ignorance. m Kb yff tT Illnhnp nnd tlrakeinnn. OMAHA, Dec. J. To the Editor of The Bee: Mr. F. J. Irwin closes his com munication to The Bee with the chal lenge: Will some correspondent of The Bee tell jour readers, if he can why a bishop should receive more pay than a brake man? At the risk of engendering bootless disputation, I will suggest as one reason that It Is because he Is a bfshop. To become a - brakeman a man must be equipped with sufficient of physical strength to endure considerable hard ships and a degree of Intelligence capa ble of assimilating the Instructions given to a point where he can efficiently carry out a routine program of fixed and de termined mechanical movements during the hours of his employment. This Is said with no Intention to disparage tho brakeman, who Is usually a man of mentality far above the reqlrements of his employment, To become a bishop a man must have physical capacity to endure strains of nature that are never experienced by a brakeman; must have mental qualllca tlons that lift him above his fellow-men, and must have passed through gradations of service that -tax him to his utmost. In order to develop those qualities that are essential to successful leadership, with out which no bishop can succeed. A bishop might easily perform the du ties of a brakeman, but how many brake men are qualified to perform tho duties of a bishop? OLD FOGY. Is Cnthollclsm Declining t OMAHA, Dec. I. To the Editor of Tho Bee: Rabbi Cohn, speaklng'on Catho licism, says It Is declining and has not overcome the shock of the reformation. Of course. It Is easy to see through his argument. It would not do for him to make It sound too good to his audience. But let htm look at statistics and he will see that It Is galntng rapidly, In stead of declining. The Catholics of the World at the census of 1800, numbered about J30,00),000. Today they number over 300,000,000, which Is three times as many as all the Prosestant sects com bined. What the Catholic Church lost In Europe 'during the reformation It has more than made up In North and South America. There are more Catholics In Germany today than any other body. In England thousands leave their former faith every year to Join the Catholic ranks. In Sweden. Norwon and Denmark, they are rapidly returning to Catholicism. In United States Us growth has been greater than nny other country. The Cathollo religion Is here to stay. It will last tilt the end of time. There has been many charges made against the church which were not true. If we are to Judge the church by the lives of a few bod people In the church, I'm sorry to say It will look worse for the reat of them." That would not cause her to fall Into error. The Cathllc church has been preaching the somo doctrine for 1,900 years, even her bitterest cnemys cannot cite one Instance where It ever changed Its doc trine. At times It has defined new ar ticles of faith, but they have never dis agreed with tho former teachings. The same seven sacraments were practiced In the catacombs of the first century as are practiced today. If such a thing should happen that the Catholic church should sink, the rest will go with It. A church that has stood the persecutions ot the first three centuries and all the strug gles of the succeeding centuries and the so-called reformation of the sixteenth century, can certainly survive In thin twentieth century. Churches come and churches go, but the Cathollo church goes on forever. B. C, P. la Scientific" Farming a Graft r SOUTH BEND, Neb., Dec. 2,-To the' Editor of Tho Bee: I wish some ono more capable than I am would-write up this scientific farming business .as It should be done; for I do think it the biggest graft ever undertaken. Has any one been asked to vote for the enormous expense to carry It on? No. It Is to be put over us without our consent, and I think the time to kick Is before It goes any farther. If cities are suffering for lock of gar den produce, let them tax tho city and buy a land plot and take their useless boys and teach them how to raise stuff and furnish the city, and make It pay, too, and let our farm boys stay on the farm and learn how to farm by practice; but to take them off the farm to let them be taught by persons that know less than the average farmer, and when he returns to the farm he Is no good at all and cares more for a ball game than any kind of work. His father has to work much harder to supply him lri money to attend the plays, which are surely destroying all desire for church or anything else that Is civil, gentle manly or ladylike in our young people, and substituting a desire for bull fights and the heartless feelings the Roman women had, as they could Mew with pleas ure the burning of the martvni at th stake. I High priced town teachers are tha ban of our country schools. More money for I icbs worit is ineir slogan. If farmers wculd organize to set a price on their products, they would iret alone withnn being taught sclentlfto farmlnr. it rn call up some good farmer on the line and bsk mm. It Is Indeed a science, to be taught on a farnt and not elsewhere. The telephone has been a crui mnn to help the farmer to solve difficulties as : they occur on a farm, which no man can solve, only guess at. however wise he may be. Unless he can control ih hoi of the sun and hot winds, drouths, floods, insects, he can do but lltti. ctnnA ,a corn was a curse last year, corn being so mien it would not stand the drouth, and It's no use to Irrigate when the sun Is so hot for such a Ions- tim Whu na ture Irrigates It spreads a cloud over the sun, so plants do not scald. It will do in a higher altitude, where It never gets so hot We have suffered enough as It Is without having this commission of vam pires put over us, to appoint other vagabonds to draw a salary in each county to show us how to farm. We would like to have the millers regulated so we could feed the worklngman, tho doctors, too. the railroads, etc A long suffering farmer. K. SOWARD, Antoa and Street Cars. OMAHA, Dec. 2.
