A Question of Legal Ethics.
A nlco question ot legal ethics Is
presented Just now before tho people
of Omaha.
Tho people of this community are
paying $5,000 a year of their money
to John h. Webster to servo them as
nttorncy for the Water board.' The
attornoy who has been taking tho
city's money, however, now appears
fighting tho city as attorney for tho
street railway company, seeking to
enjoin the submission of tho seven-for-n-quartcr
initiative ordinance.
Perhaps the streot railway com
pany pays tho pooplo of Omaha's
Water board attorney moro money
than he draws out of the public
treasury. Perhaps Home other law
yer would bring the suit for tho
street railway company If he did not.
Perhaps it Is merely a legal tech
nicality, anyway. We do not be
lieve, however, that Mr. Webster,
while accepting the streot railway
company'a money, would accept any
one's elso money to bring stilt against
the street railway company.
So much for legal othlcs.
Senatorial Perquisites.
Tho committee to audit and con
trol contingent expenses in tho sen
ate, evidently finding little to do, has
offered a resolution limiting to $00
a year tho ntnount each senator may
spend for "froe" telegrams. Natu
rnlly, It provokes sharp differences
of opinion nnd debate, and, in view
of tho fact that all the senators com
bined spont only $ 2,522 for tele
grams In throo months, seems a sheer
waste of much ammunition on Tory
email game. Why not, as Senators
Bryan of Florida and Lodge suggest,
simply let tho old rulo obtain of leav
ing It to each senator to distinguish
between prlvato and public business?
Evidently there is no great amount
of abuso now under that rule,
Senntor Qalllngcr offers an amend
ment, concurred In by Senators Root
and John Sharp Williams, to abolish
freo uso of totographlc wlros, each
senator mooting tho oxpenso out ot
his own pocket. To this Senator
Thomas objocta that as a mattor ot
consistency It would obllgo them to
abolish nil perquisites, Including tho
clerks and secretaries, which scorns
to bo a rather strained construction.
Surely with so many solf-appolntcd
public monitors of prlvato morals,
tho old rule should continue safo
enough.
Power of College Athletics.
Thoy reckon without . their host
who think athletics havo not taken a
vital and official hold on tho conduct
of tho American college What at
first was but a slde-llno diversion Is
today as much a part of tho average
college lite as Bdonco or tho classics.
It occasions no aorlous commont
when a bdard votes a larger salary
to tho physical or athletic director
than to a loading professor.
Lnfayetto college in Pennsylvania
has Just furnished a striking illustra
tion of tho power ot collogo athletics.
For noarly a quarter ot a century Dr.
Ethelbort W. Warflold has served
that Institution as president, In
which time it has onJoyod "a growth
without precedent" in Its own his
tory, nud President Warfleld has
taken his placo among leading col
lege executives, But bolng old-
fashioned In his Ideas of a college, ho
opposed tho prominence given ath
letics. Ho might as woll havo ten
dered his resignation and boon done
with It, for ho has virtually been
recallod" by students and alumni,
and at tho end of tho present scholas
tic year will stop down and out to
make way for a president who be
lieves that othletlcs foot ball, baso
ball and all tho rest belongs along
side the Greek root, calculus and tho
history ot llfo as a part of modern
education. And wo do not know but
this case may be considered m
typical.
Of course, tho rightful place ot col
lege athletics Is not to bo denied, but
It Is one stdo of tho life that will al
ways call for the very wisest reguU'
tlbn.

"The generosity, tho Intelligence and

"The esteem of one's fellow men Is not

Philadelphia Ledger: Tho outlook Is
that the present congress will appropriate
$100,000,000 more than any other congress
ever appropriated and set precedents for
future appropriations before tho country
realises what Is going cn. "Economy"

Boston Transcript: One ot tho psy
chological puzzlers In connection with the.
alleged American mind is tho fact that
the very newspapers which In 1SU con
sidered Wllllaip H. Taft too reactionary
to be president for a, four-year torm now
are tho most enthusiastic indorscrs he
has for a Ufa seat on' the supreme court
bench.
Pittsburgh Dispatch: The Pullman com-l
pany puts on tho extra prlco for prlvato
fctatcrooms, with the statement that "It
Is not designed to bring In larger

caused by tho cars being partly empty.
Some one should start a subscription to

Henry Wattereon, In Louisville Courler-
Uournal: Federal ownership? Govern
ment censorship? Partylsm by process of
self-perpetuation? Hitherto It has re
quired only, a revolution to effect a
change ot parties at Washington. If the
people, blindly paying tho fabulous de
mands, put theso giant powers In the
hands of any group ot public men. It will
require on earthquake. Progress, Indeed;
after the telegraphs and telephones, why
not tho railways; after tho railways, why
not all the publlo utilities? And then, as
far as our old-fashioned Jeffersonlan
democracy goes, why not the deluge? I
know not how to differentiate public
measures from party leaders. As the egg
Is to the shell, Is the statesman to his
case. All the republics ot which wo havo
Unowledgo came to grief and were carted
to the boneyard through the Inability ot
the people to distinguish between the truo
and the false among their publlo men. In
every age and clime the rescript for
demagogy has been the same. It is as
old aa the hills, as simple and familiar
as the selling ot gold bricks, and yet ap
parently as effective as ever.
Tin Anirrlennit I.nck Patriotism t
SOUTH OMAHA. Neb., Feb. 17.-To the
Kdltor of The Bee: Is "patriotism" a
lost word? Have we no nationality? Why
Is It that an Omaha, audience remains
seated while the orchestra plays "The
Star Hpangled Banner?" As a. natural
ized American, I waa astonished on Lin
coln's birthday when the national air
was played and Lincoln's picture dis
played at the Orpheum, to realize that
only throe people arose. We pride our
selves on being citizens of the "Great
Republic," but the citizens of no other
nation would have shown so little respect.
Play "God Savo the King" and every
English subject Is on his feet. While
the children in our public schools sing
"America" or "The Star Spangled Ban
ner" they always stand. Why do theso
little Imitators forget the reverence and
respect for patriotism? Is It not becauso
thoy watch the "grown ups" In their
blase attitude toward these things? Could
not the theaters and other public places
help if a suggestion of some sort was
made to their audiences.

A READER OF YOUR PAPER.
A Negro Spcnks 1IU Sllnd.
OMAHA, Feb. 17. To tho Editor ot
The Bee: Will you kindly allow mo to
ask our citizens why the negro should be
censured In view of tho following condi
tions: Our white neighbors claim that we will
not rise; that our social and moral status
Is at a standstill. They seem to expect
us to do from a social and moral stand
point In fifty years what It required
thorn hundredu of years to accomplish.
Tho great mass of negroes aro forced to
spend their lives In certain grades of em
ployment, such as porterlng work In
barber strops hotels, saloons and public
resorts.
Some negroes aro glad to get this class
ot work, first, because it Is about the
only field opened to them; second, be
cause tho remuneration Is better than In
other lower grades Of employment, and.
third, tho patrons of theso places show
them more kindness and consideration
than whites in other vocations. But
hero they are brought in contest with
types whoso traits ot character and hab
its constantly mould their actions. Un
lctted and Bomplemlnded negroes aro
forced by the cruel hand of fato to work
In this lower claas ot employment If
one,, by education or Innato ability,
struggles to rise above the common herd"
he is hurlod back In the vast abyss by
that ever-crouching and yearning white
beast ot prejudice.
I have In mind a negro porter who
worked In tho law office of the Nash
ville Ss Chattanooga railway nt Nash
ville, Tenn. He waa educated, a fine pen
man and kept the books for months when
tjio stenographer was sick or away on a
vacation. If any legal paper were wanted
about the office, Billy got them; If they
were to be drawn, Billy drew them. One
young lawyer that ho greatly assisted
became the head railroad lawyer of tho
Illinois Central at Chicago. Had Bllly'H
skin been white, he, too, no doubt, would
have gone to Chicago. He went to work
as a porter and died in the same ca
pacity. There aro many Billies all over
the United States whose ambitions are
throttled and crushed by the people who
say the negroes will not advance.
Locally, one can often hear It said. In
the big offices up town, or by the silk
stocking bunch, mat tho negroes are
largely controlled by Tom Dennlson and
his gang. Why not? Dennlson and his
gang are the only people In the city who
show the negroes any consideration
They want to see them have fair play.
They get them work; then get them food
and get them shelter Why shouldn't they
stick? We haven't heard of anybody from
the "Farnam district" going out ot their
way to do this
Dennlson, who Is portrayed as having
the unseen horns on his head, took money
out ot his pocket and paid off the mort
gage on an old negro woman's property
that was about to be sold from under her.
She was too old to work for htm. She
could not vote, so ono can see he had no
selfish object In view.
Then, If your critics would help the
negro to acquire what yojt say he hai
not, you must show the spirit ot doing
something tangible. Thow open the doors
of your stores, factories, foundries nnd
mills to our common and skilled laborers,
to our clerks and stenographers, and If
then wo do not provo ourselves worthy
men, put us out: but not till then.
