Tho wonder Is that Kansas City 8top8 at tho commission form of city government when tho general managor plan Is tho latest.

Bldl, U tho lato grand Jury has helped a fow widows and orphans to got their monoy from lawyors holding out on thorn, it will have somo substantial credit marks. Tho ovldenco Is conclusive, however, that It wan a perjured deposition for which tho witness "was paid and that It was not the fault ot tho lawyer who topk tho deposition that tho fronioup was exposed. Oh yes, whenever flagrant porjury is com mitted to helna lawyer win a big contingent fee, the witness concocts tho story entirely out of his own imagination, and doeB it for a purely voluntary effort to help fill the lawyer's pocket-book. It must bo reassuring for President Wilson to know that any time ho has a vacancy in his Btato department portfolio he need only beckon Senator Jhamlewls to socuro tho sorvlco of a statesman from whoso tongue flows worlds' diplomacy like unto copious rain in tho gentlo spring timo. It Is now explained that the Baltimore plat form "contains an undemocratic plank." Oh, impossible! That platform was framed by and with tho approval of Secretary of 8tate Bryan, and was adopted unanimously by all thq con vention delegates In Baltimore assombled, which makes every lino and word In It the double dis tilled essence' of democracy. It wai April fool for the defeated candidates In the city election. Those who won out were: For councilman, Plrst ward, Thrane; Second ward, Behm; Third ward. Ford: Fourth ward. Heche!; Fifth ward.

Lucas, for some time pastor of the Christian church, has resigned to take the editorial chair of a religious paper published In Des Moines. William B. Foley, last season's third baseman for the t,nlon Paclflo base ball nine, leaves Omaha to play with the Union of Chicago. Mr. Foley re ceived a telegram from the manager of that club of fering him $1,400 for the season, and Immediately wired his acceptance. Frank Bandle, the daisy catcher of the Union Pacifies, returned from a visit to Chicago. Minnie and Ltlje, daughters of Mr. and .Mrs. J. W. Jones of Eloux City, two Infant prodigies, gave an ex hibition at the roller skating ring. Mr. and Mrs. John I Webster and tlaughtur started for Washlnston elty. to be gone a few weeks. The Way to Get Together. Tho two committees representing the two wings of tho republican party In Nebraska have, we believe, struck out upon the proper way to get together In fact, it la tho way suggested a long while ago by The Bee. The law of Nebraska provides for party or ganization through a stato committee deriving Ha authority from a stato convention made up of delegates from tho different countlos. Tho task nhead Is to secure a (tingle state convention representing all elements of the party from which will como a slnglo state commltteo to manage tho work of tho next campaign. A convention called by concurrent action of tho two present committees will bring about that union, provided a similar course Is taken In tho several counties In which doublo county organ izations exist. There Is no good reason why this plan should not be followed with successful results, for it Is to bo assumed that the radicals who do not wish to bo further allied with tho repub lican party, and who have gone to tho third party movement, will this year participate lu their own party primaries and conventions In stead of In both, as they did two years ago A republican convention made up of republicans who want to remain republicans will find com mon ground. Tho most significant feature of tho rap prochoment of tho two republican committees Ih the Blgn of get-together sentiment which Is rapidly growing among all who oppose demo cratic party policy, and see no good to come from tho ascendency ot the democrats. It Is to be underutood, howovor, that tho democratic enemy will omit nothing in its powor to foment republican discord and keep republican factlonu apart. Promising Farm Prospects. All Indications at present favor a good wheat crop In Nebraska, and, in fact, other middle-west states. Heavy snows of tho winter and rains thus far this spring havo produced al most perfect soil conditions and exports report tho status of wheat Al. What Is bMU more gratifying In this connection Is that tho acroago of wheat this year Is unusually largo in Ne braska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Missouri. While, therefore thero Is many a slip 'twltt prospocts and harvest, wo havo ovory reason now for being contont. The proverbial "oldest Inhabitant" scratches his head In vain for tho recollection of a spring more propltltlous, not only to wheat, but crops In goneral. Wo have as yet had no unseasonably mild weather. Buds havo boon held back normally and should es capo tho nip of lato frosts if they come nloni? later. Altogether, it looks as if tho farmers had a big year ahead. Asquith's Bold Move. Sir Edward Grey's suggestion of a federal system for tho British Isles as a solution of the Ulstor problem loses somo of the element of surpriso it might othorwiBO convoy In view ot tho bold and unexpected action of Promlor Asqulth In assuming, himself, tho war secretary ship laid down by tho resignation of General Soely. Evidently tho premier has his war paint on, for such a move, though It may provo tha quickest, way to a peacoful readjustment, Is au dacious In its boldness. Again Asqulth has shown himself to bo" In fact as woll as name tho active head of tho government, for while, it Is said, bo consulted as to this stop with tho king only, tho coup undoubtedly was his own concep tion. It stands to reason, therefore, that, with all tho oloment of chanco involved, ho either feels certain of tho powor to back up his strategom and carry the plan through to a sue cessful termination, or has found the crisis so grave as to Justify almost any action that cau with tho least possible safety bo taken. It will bo Interesting to know whether tho Asquith movemont was a part with tho Groy proposal. Tho proposition to form a federal system soems quite In lino with loglo as wo view tho situation from this sldo. Americans, ot course, would bo prepared to bollovo almost any tlmo that England had gono over to such a plan, not for tho empire, but simply tho IbIos. With a fedoral parliament in London and separate legislatures for Ireland, Wales, Scotland, possi bly partitioning Ireland so as to glvo Ulster Us own stato organization, surely tho way out would Beem easy. But how about the Tory fac tion that Is proving strong enough In tho Ulster fight for the minority to rule the majority? Putting Oregon in Bad. Governor West of Oregon, according to re ports, refuses to grunt extradition of wlfo dosortors seokinrj refuge from other states. As tho Spokane SpokeBman-Itevlow says, It Is lin posslblo to imagine upon what grounds he at tempts to Justify such action, Perhaps he doos not attempt to Justify It at all. Willful wife dosertlon is rogardod by many states bo grave an offense that they havo made it i folopy. Nebraska is among those that havo put It Into this classification. For a sister state to provide a haven ot safety for such scoundrels, thoreforo, Is not only vory unsavory advertising for that commonwealth, but direct disparagement of the good work undertakeu (risewhero. Ot course, It Oregon peoplo quietly stand for this sort of publicity for tholr state it will glvo tho general impression that they favor sheltering that class ot men who abandon their families tor "pure selfishness. Candidates for democratic nominations aro debating whether the campaign in Nebraska this year should be conducted on national or state Issues. Unless former experience count for nothing, the candidates will not be allowed to determine this matter. The voters will aBk tho questions and the candidates will have to answer them. The postofflce mathematicians have made an estimate of 218,353 people within tho area served by carrier delivery from the Omaha posr offlco and its various branches. That look mighty good. We wish we could persuade our solvos to believe It. Tho democrats who express fear that free tolls will benefit only the shipping monopoly cannot bo sincere, for how can any monopoly In shipping or anything else exist with demo crats in control of the government? The Inter Ocean pleads for "A revival of tha Chicago spirit." An appeal to the old West 8lde fans to get -behind the Oubs for another world's championship, probably. e a ees. -ex.

To the Editor of Tho Bee; In the name of the "go-to-church committee, I wish to thank you for the part which The Bee played In the decided success of the "go-to-church" campaign. I believe It will have a perma nent effect. E. P. DENISON, General Secretary. Advice in the Johles. PAPILLION. Neb., March 31.-To the Editor of The Bee: I hava been down whero the bums and Idle of your city are. They strlko me as nasty, vulgar persona who hang around saloons, smoke cigarettes and talk about not being able to get Jobs. Poor menl How foolish they arel So afraid of employers, so awfully dependent, with no will power to lift thomsetves out of degradation. I am dependent upon myself, but I hate the saloon, and hate to brcatho the air In front ot a saloon. Society blames these men and young boys for loafing around saloons, smoking cigarettes and drinking booze, and so do I. Men, brace up, use a little Julgment for yourselves, study some books, quit smoking cigarettes and quit drinking booze.' Cut It all out The dope de grades you, and makes your condition worso than before and leaves you more hopeless. If you would use your brains you" would soon force the employers to give you work. The world owes you men a living, and some pleasure besides, but try to be clean and moral It helps. CLARENCE SJOBLOM. f'linnte Cnminsr In the Church. OMAJIA, March 31.-To the Editor of The Bee: Several years ago a gifted poet wrote: How long, how long, O God of Light, Shall creeds conceal thy human side. And Christ, the God, be crowned In song. While Christ, the Man, Is crucified? Theoe lines came to me constantly dur ing the recent "go-to-church" agitation and more than ever as I sat in church last Sunday. They reveal a condition all inURt admit who are reasonably Intelligent nnd have any regard for truth. This con dition Is largely the reason for tho In difference or open hostility of the masses to the church. Our present Industrial system has placed bofore the peoplo the working people problems that must be solved If thoy are to live and life Is worth living. These nro material problems and must be solved In a material way. Mod ern crucifixion must cease. Prayers and Platitudes and songs and sermons will not suffice. Angels will not come down to assist us. Wo must act and act wisely. "God helps them that help themselves." The workers must be given control over their own lives; they must own the Jobs on which their lives depend. Wealth must bo for Its makers and for them only. This will eliminate poverty and all the want and woo and wickedness following In Its wake. What If we do call this socialism? Are we children? Will we Jet a word frighten us 7 Or shall we study this thing and learn what It Is and so know how to deal with It? Surely the latter Is the. proper way, and It Is the way that tho useful, working, wealth-producing por tion of society is rapidly taking. There need bi no misgivings concerning the ultimate course of the church. We live In an oventful period. Change Is the order -of tho day. especially along politi cal and Industrial; lines. Organized relig ion, always Influenced' by social condi tions, will not stay stationary while so ciety moves onward." The church will change with- a change In the principal source of its Income. The church will be pure when It Is purged of the plunderers of the people The church will Indeed he the fountain head of true religion and morality when all will be workers and so only workers will support it and con trol It. This change Is coming. It Is almost as suro as the aun.ln Its course. A bright day will then dawn for humanity. Men will bo worthy of the God that made them. Purer morals and a deeper spir ituality cannot fail to follow. EDMUND B. BRUMBAUGH, S562 Camden Avonuo. llcnr to Boost Omnhn. OMAHA, March 31. To the Editor of The Bee: I notice that the cigar Jobbers of Omaha are advertising buy cigars that Omaha men are boosting. Now I. wish to say In behalf of the cigar workers of Omaha, to the smoking public, that by buying Omaha boosted cigars they are not helping nor boosting Omaha, but are enriching the large eastern cigar monopo lies, which employ mostly underpaid girls to make their cigars In order to make large profits and declare big dividends to their stockholders, while their employes eke out an existence. Now, Mr, Smoker, If you buy. Omaha made cigars, you boost Omaha by giving) employment to men who get a fair day'a pay for a fair day's work. The more Omaha cigars you buy, the more homes you furnish for Omaha,' and' your money stays here and helps boost Omaha right. Help boost Omaha by buying Omaha made cigars, which are made by men who have their homes here, and not what the Jobbers of Omaha boost. P. J. HULLER, Secretary Cigarraakers' Union NO. SJ.

A. (Pa) Rourke, Who Owns and Manages the Omaha League Team. SUNNY OEMS. My business Is tunning a base ball club In a leaguo with seven other clubs owned and run as mine Is by private Individuals. Whllo I think my business has Its difficulties, tho same as other busi nesses, I sometimes am forced to believe that other people do not share this view; that they think my business Is the easiest one In the world to run. Why do I think that? Because everyone, mj friends Included, knows Just how base ball ought to be run better than I know. Why, you can go down the street any day In the base ball season In this or any other city and find hundreds ot fans stand ing in front of tho score boards who aro redely io admit that they could run the team better than th" man who Is trying to do It. Yet when I saM last fall that I would sell my team and franchise to anyone who offered mo my price, I didn't find a taker. I'm not complaining; I am simply speaking ar experience every base ball man in tho country haa. It Is natural, I suppose, for the public to feel that tunning a base ball team, like running a newspaper. Is a simple thing, but thoso of us ,who have given the best years of our lives to base ball know It Is not. I welcome this friendly spirit, though, for while It often takes a severer turn, It shows that the fans are Interested In my business. I would not 'care If they got even more Interested along this line, su much so as to como out to the park while the games were being played nnd tell me there toll me and my players Just how things ounght to be done. 1 don't know of anything that would please me more than this. As long as you have given me the opportunity ot writing an article about my own affairs, I am going to take the leave ot saying what all those fa miliar with the records know that In the last score of years I have been running tho Omaha Western league ball ttom I have landed It near the top morn times than I have landed It at the bottom. I hav! won my share of the pennants, come second and third several times and on the whole struck a better average than most any other team with ono excep tion. This 1 mention merely by way of showing that I've at least tried. And there Is a funny thing. Tou know, fans aro so good and loyal to their own town they are so unxloua to fseo thcr home team win that sometimes when It Iosjs they forget nnd say tho owner doesn't care: that he la afraid to invest his money In good players; he Is a tightwad, and all that. Well, now. of course, those friends know that good players make a winning team and a winning team draws big crowds and big crowds boost the revenue and the revenue makes the wheels go round. And yet some hard headed magnates persist In deliberately getting poor players and losing games when they might Just as well cop tho good players, games and money at tho box office. I'll say thls-I never had a poorer team than 1 could help. I llUo to win games and draw crowds and get good money at the box office like it aa much aa anybody, and I'm going to do all this when 1 can. But, evon tho owner of a b'aso ball club somotlmcs meets up with things that he cither cannot do or finds very hard to do. Every town in the .country wants Its team to win first place every year. That Is natural. That Is the spirit that makes base ball. But at the same time that spirit must allow for natural results. Somebody has to loso In every contest and strugglo In life and It Is the good loser who makes the best winner. By that I do not mean to say that my friends here In Omaha ought to be content to follow a losing team. I have learned by experience that .they are not, but we have to take our chances along with the rest. ' Men have aBked me if I have a winning team this year. I think so. I can tell better when I sco my team- In action In competition with tho others. Tou see, while I am trying to build up a wlnnej. my seven competitors are trying to do the ' same thing. Let me get down to brass tacks and say this, that It often happens that the best teams come cheap, from a monetary standpoint, while teams that are not consistent winners come high. I have one of tho best big league teams ever organized In mind In this connec tion. It was built up at small cost, so far aa the price of playcra was concerned, for most of the. men were picked from colleges and didn't cost any thing. Last year I had a tough time of It. I guess I waa less popular with the local fans than I ever had been. They had demanded a pennant and I could not deliver, I had a very wild bunch of pitchers and many of my other players were not there. And yet, let mo tell you, that I spent more money for players; tried harder to land the right men, than I had for several seasons. In spite of everything, I could not put the punch In the team. I waa tipped off here and there to a "live one," only to find upon delivery that I had got another dead one. This waa especially true of pitchers, as some of the real fans of this city know. Then some of my best men went Blck or lame, Well, the season ended In an uproar tor my scalp, goffered to sell If I got my price. I didn't get It. I have the best plant In the league. In the best town In the league, and know that with a good team I'm there. But In all this number of fans who demanded my retirement and felt as If they could do the Job better than I, I found no purchaser. (Of course, 1 waa not keen to sell, though willing.) Well, then, I concluded aa an alternative that I'd try putting In a completely new team aa far as possible. I've done that. My whole Infield Is new and part of my out field. I have two new catchers and several new , pitchers. If newness wins, we arc there In 1914. But In addition to newness, I've tried to look out for merit. It seems to me, as I survey my recruits, that Omaha will have at team fit for tho race this year. At least, I shall make every effort In my power to have such a one, no matter how many changes that may require. Let my friends keep this In mind I am more interested than they possibly can be in having a winning team. My business,- as I say. Is everyone's business, and yet if some lines of trade were criticized as the business of base ball is the men with the money Invested would have grounds for damage suits. There Is no such thing for a base ball man and he doesn't expect It. I freely grant the fans right to. kick" and am not complaining. Omaha has been good to me. and if I have not returned the favor, It has been duo to no deliberate fault on my part I crave the co-operation of all my friends this year In my effort to make a good year.
