Three Views of Reserve Bank Politics,
Let no ono harbor tho notion that tho out
cry ngnlnst tho palpable play of politics In tho
selection of reserve bank cltlos Is confined to
Omaha or to any one locality. Let us quote
comment from three different sources reflect
ing current opinion on tho subject.
When tho list of reserve bank cities was
Blven out, this Is what the Baltimore American
' had to say:
That Richmond should have been chosen In pre
ference to this city -the real metropolis of the srfuth
was utterly wltho-it reason or excuse. To make
Baltimore tributary to the Virginia capital In this
branch of government finance Is rubbing It In. The
strong delegations that went to Washington were
' given every reason to believe that their mission was
: successful. Then, at the finish. Baltimore was thrown
1 out ps If It had no morn tight to such a. bank than
' a crossroads village. Baltimore has a right to feel
' Perhaps further light on this particular In
stance la thrown by an editorial paragraph In
tho Philadelphia Ledger, as follows:

Tho Spokesinfin-Heview recalls this Incident
with the comment that, "thoro are a number or
circumstances which indicate that the commit
teeo has not Uvod up to Its protestations."
Tho cue for tho federal banking board, of
course, is to koep qulot and hold fast in the
hopo that tho politics of tho bank locations will
be soon forgotten. But tho trouble is that this
mis-step nt the start will lead the public to look
for politics In tho future moves of tho hoard
and to give ready ear to every charge of politi
cal bank management.
The Poor Man's Court
Sitjned Article by Justice of
the Peace Harry H. Claiborne.
The office of Justice of the peace Is by Its title
one of the oldest of the magistral offices known to
the English common law, but there Is little In com
mon between the office In tho I'nlted States and
In Nebraska the Justice of the pcaco has a dis
tinctly statutory existence. Courts of record have
what Is known as common law powers distinct from
statute and have equity Jurisdiction which permits In
many ways the exercise of discretion not possessed
by the Justice of tho peace, whose Jurisdiction Is dls.
tlnctly that of law and whose powers and limitations
aro closely circumscribed both by statute and by
the decision Of the higher courts.
Out of the maze of decisions and the limitations
of statute the Justice of the peace finds himself often
traveling In a groove which Is far from agreeable,
especially when he Is morally certain that one party
to an action Is trying to exact the Jast pound of flesh
under tho law and la Impelled perhaps by malice and
while keeping within his legal rights Is morally In the
wrong. Justice courts are not courts and morals and
declMona must be based upon the law and the Justice of
the peace, while feeling that he Is assisting In a moral
wrong Is sometimes oompelleil to enforce the laws
laid down by the legislature and construed by the
Courts with no power, such aa Is possessed by the
courts of modifying tho extreme provisions of the
statute, even In the matter of taxing costs,
This Is one of the reasons why the Justice court
has fallen Into some dlsreputo In the community, the
people not understanding why a district Judge can
make certain orders under some conditions where a
Justice cannot, and In ignorance, assuming that the
Justice la more rigorous or less sympathetic than the
Judge of the higher court.
For Instance, a Judge of a court of record has the
power ofmodifying, netting aside or suspending Judg
ments during the term of ytirt at which they are
rendered, while the Judgment of a Justice of the
peace cannot bo modlflod In any manner, nor even
be corrected after It Is once written, and while the
Judge of a court of record cm consider a case sub
mitted to him for any length of time, tho Justice
must decide any case within four days no matter how
Intricate the point of law may be, and once his. Judg.
ment Is pronounced It must he written on his docket
on the same day It' Is rendered, otherwise It Is null
and void. Although the Justice of the peace may
learn, na onco happened In my court, that a Judg
ment had been secured by barefaced perjury, he has
no power to sot that Judgment aside, but the litigant
Is forced to appeal to a higher coUrt for relief. Were
such a condition to obtain In the district court tho
Judgment could he vacated and a new trial be ordered.
Underwood's defeat of Hobson for the sen
atorial nomination in Alabama means hid
advancement to tho upper house next year, tho
end of the term of the late Senator Johnston,
whose death created tho vacancy. Whether or
not it also means new vantage ground for Un
derwood's 'presidential aspirations remains to
bo. seen, Precedent Is against it, for presidents
have not often como dlroct from tho senate
This is a day, however, when political prece
dents soem to. bo losing value, and possibly
Chairman Underwood ,wlll have nothing; of this
kind at stake, anyway.
Tho Alabama prlmarlos havo attracted nation-wide
interest, not only bceauso ptUnder
,wood.'s(rank as'flo(or. loader of tho,(houset major
ity and sponsor for tho new tariff law, but also
because ofc Hobson's making prohibition a vital
issue in tho campaign, backed, as he was, by
tho dry forces ovor tho country. Regardless of
post-election explanations. Hobson's defeat will
bo taken as a rejection of prohibition nnd this
may be the moro significant since it is the sec
ond time within recont ypars that the people of
Alabama have thus recorded themselves. It Is
only fair to allow something, however, for th
rolatlve personal and political prcstlgo of Chair
man Underwood, who may have scored an even
moro decisive victory over Mr. Hobson If prohi
bition had not been projected.

Democratic opponents of the republican get
together movement in Nebraska think they havo
a brand to reklndte the factional fire If they can
start a disputo over tho basis of delegate appor
tionment to the state convention. They want
to make believe that tho chairman of the com
mittees who issuo the convention call have aomo
discretion in the matter, when, in fact, tho law
expressly fixes the basis of representation in it,
This is found in section 2207 Of our now code,
which sets forth that tho various political par
ties shall hold a delegate state convention on
tho last Tuesday in July of each year to promul
gate a platform and select a stato committee,
yet subjoct to this proviso:
Provided, the delegates to audi state, or state nd
congressional, conventions shall be apportioned by
such committees to the several counties upon the vote
cast at the last election for electors for president and
vice president In tho respective counties; and pro
vided, further, that each county shall be entitled to
at least one delegate to such convention, or conven
tions. If this means anything, It must mean that
tho republican convention apportionment must
bo based on tho voto for the republican presi
dential electors Just as thedemocratlo conven
tion apportionment must be based upon tho voto
for democratic presidential electors, the social
ist convention upon the vote for socialist presi
dential electors and the progressive party con
vention apportionment upon the vote for pro
gressive presidential electors. In a word, there
is nothing here to qulbbte about, because thu
apportionment is made by (110 law, and not by
the committees or their chairmen.

Signing himself "A British Subject," a resi
dent of Evanston writes to the Chicago Record
Herald upholding Wilson and Bryan, saying
"President Wilson and Mr. Bryan seem to bo
the very men suited to cope with the existing
difficulties." No doubt that would evoke a
unanimity of "Hear, Hear's" over the wye.

In this state the Income of the Justice of the
peace Is based upon the fees of his office. All costs
of court belong to the Justice of tho peace, so the
natural desire of the Incumbent Is to have as much
business as possible. Few Incumbents will openly 'en
courage litigation, for there Is punishment provided
for such a course; hut with the fee system this de
sire for business may produce a tendency to favor
the party who brings the business. For this reason
It has been said both facetiously and Ironically that
the abbreviation "J. P." stands for "Judgment for
Plaintiff." since the plaintiff Is the man who brings
However true this may be, under any system the
plaintiff would win the greater number of cases be
cause few persons will bring suit against another
unless a claim la well founded.
The majority of cases brought In the Justice courts
are decided upon default the defendant making no
appearance and thus by Implication acknowledging the
truth of the plaintiff's claim. Of the contested cases
It Is probable that a fair proportion of decisions will be
about sixty for plaintiff to forty for defendant, which
under the conditions shown will dispose of the charge
at 'always Judgment for Plaintiff.
yliMlV recently there -wftsj-s. -sylteni among a6m
of 'thY Justices $t the peace, whereby tfiey entered Into
what was a practical partnership with certain plain
tiffs. In one or two Instance Installment. business
houses paid the Jnstlce a fixed sum of money monthly
for the use of his name on counterfeit summonses
which were sept out by the houses without the
knowledge of the Justice. When bills were paid at
a result of such imitation pummonses thrf Justice re
celvea an additional 10 per cent for his services and
J suit was brought he received his fees provided
they could be forced from the defendant. Another
Justice of the peace of the coUhty at ono time was
on the payroll of a collection agency received 100 a
month, win or lose, and the collection agent pocketed
the costs. Fortunately this state of affairs has Prac
tically ceased. There Is now but one Justice of the
peace In Omaha who was serving four years ago, and
so far as the writer knows hone of these practices
has ever been laid at his door. ""
The Justice court has been called the poor man's
court with some degree of reason because the limited
Jurisdiction In tho tral of cases Involving small sums
of money and the decision affecting personal property
rights of small value. Few Justice eases are appealed
where the parties are both Individuals, and for this
reason the Justice must exercise great care In ascer
taining the legal rights of the parties, often without
the assistance of lawyers since any one can file a
case and prosecute It before a Justice of the peace.
pefore closing 1 would make a few suggestions
for the better administration of Justice. "In tho first
place no matter how meritorious a case a man may
have, he mutt have at least J2.60 before he can start
a lawsuit In a Justice court and at least 17.W before
he can enter the district court. Many cases have
come to me where I believed the claimant entitled to
a trial of his cause, hut he had no money. I have
donated my fees to him, and when the case was tried
If Judgment was found against the defendant tho
Judgment has been without costs, for I do not believe
that a Justice should compel a defendant to pay fees
where they have not been advanced by the defendant.
In other words, I will not make a fee factor' out of
the office, t would have a law passed to permit any
worthy claimant on proper showing to have the
right to start a suit In forma pauperis and no costs
to be taxed In the case. We make lawyers defend
paupers without fee In the federal court and the
Justice, exercising a wise discretion, should be com
pelled to do a little free service under some cir
cumstance. Another thing Is In the mutter of changes of
venue. Today the defendant in any rase can force
the plaintiff to try a case before the Justice next
nearest to the one before whom the suit Is filed, on
filing an affidavit alleging prejudice on the part of
the latter. The next nearest Justice may be more
prejudiced against the defendant, but the defendant
Is forced Into an unfriendly court- He should be
given the right to show the prejudice of tht next
nearest Justice and have the cause removed to a
justice with no prejudice toward either party.
Provision should be made to bring suits where
the debt was created as well as In the county where
the defendant resides. Men jfrrquently Jump out of
town leaving bills for necessaries of life. They could
be notified of the suit and one railroad fare would
enable them to make defense while now & plaintiff
may have to take a dosen witnesses Ipto a distant
part of the state In order to prove his case,
A change Is needed In the way of making proofs
of accounts. Since practically alt of the accounts of
merchants are now kept by the looseleaf system It I
difficult to find "book of original entry," but our
laws still Insist upon such evidence to prove an ac
count The fee system should be aboltshed, for It Is a
standing temptation to the weak and a cause of sus
picion of the strong. We are all more or less Judged
by the majority of our class or occupation the
lawyer, the Jew, the negro or the preacher, and one
"crooked" Justice of the peace will stain the general
reputation of the entire number,

Sees Kvll Tendencies. In the Theaters
OMAHA. April ".-To the Editor of The
Bee: The theater la supposed to be edu
cational as well as entertaining, but the
Reneral tun of entertainment I have seen
In the theaters In Omaha, and In other
cities too, makes me feel that It is neither.
There are, of course, dfferent tastes and
different people; there are those who like
vulgar Jokes, cheap songs and silly act
ing, in my opinion, the theater should
strive to educate these people to better
things Instead of lowering their concep
tions. I do not know about the high class
theaters, as my position does not enable
me to visit the best places, but there are
"stunts," supposedly decent, carried on In
some theaters which can cause only the
more evil parts of our natures to have
sway, I would like to see the theater a
moral, clean and educational Institution,
where the best talent could be seen by
every class of people, for the theater Is
a school, for either good or III.
I'ntne nr Imrersollt
OMAHA, April 6.-T0 the Editor of The
Be: The adversaries of Charles Wooster
are recommended by John Haney of
David City to read either Paine or Inger
soli before they undertake to refute or
to prltlclse hla (Wooster's) opinions. Now,
If we are to read the doctrines of both
Tolne and Ingeteoll, how shall we ever
.arrive at a valid conclusion? Thomas
Tolne tells us tha,t there Is a God who
created and sustains tho universe, and he
supports this opinion by arguments which
cannot be resisted; but Mr, Ingersoll tells
its that Thomas Pnlne is mistaken, and
that there Is no logical proof whatever
that tho MnlVerse owes Its existence to
any such absolute cause,. and that the
orumentvorrred in. .favor pt thefixls
ence. ofGod are all fallacies. Thomas
J'alne, being a Deist, rnust of .necessity
contradict Mr. Ingersoll, who was' an
Agnostic, and this contradiction involves
the moat Important point ever raised by
philosophers, namely. "Does, there exist,
either In thn World, or In connection with
It, an absolutely necessary being?"
Thomas Talne says he has proved that
such a being does exist, and Colonel
Ingersoll soya that this proof Is a piece
So now we ask John Haney of David
City, whose book shall we read? Shall
we believe with Mr. Paine that the ex
istence of God Is fully demonstrated, or
shall we conclude with Ingersoll that
there Is no proof thot Rod has any exist
Charles Wooster never makes any refer
ence to Paine or Ingersoll In his letter,
for he In shrewd enough to seo that theao
noted free-thinkers dispute each other
e'en before they have settled the first
question In the catechism of metaphysics,
and he knows that unless something be 1
taken for granted, nothing can ever bo
proven, either one way or the other.
The Ingersoll doctrine, like the Inrer.
soil watch, Is only guaranteed for one
year. E. O. M'INTOail.
Why llo nirls Smoke Cigarettes?
OMAHA, April 7. To the Editor of The
Bee: I sometimes am puxxled why girls
use elgarettes. I can't understand why
they do so. It sems to me that I w'ould
be ashamed thut people would speak evjl
of me. I would be so embarrased that I
would not want anyone to see me.
I have been told by a woman she has
useJ cigarettes since her companion haa
died, or otherwise, separated, but I be
lleve she had used them longer thin she
claim. Smoking clgsrettes Is as had as
a person using morphine, or some other
dope. If they were of a self respect they
would not do such.
I know when I was In Chicago In his
pltal training I went out with a friend
of mine slummlng-that wsa an officer
In the Salvation Army and I never In
all my life saw such sights aa I aw It
then. Beautiful girls In. the wine rooms
smoking cigarettes, drinking, and other
sight I dare not mention. They say that
Chicago haa such a bad Underworld. I
don't think It any worse than Omaha.
Some of the supposed'to.be Christian
workers, who claim they are doing so
much for fallen humanity, better get
busy In Omaha and reform the girls
here. It Is awful when such a class will
take work away from the rrineathi
people whp aro trying to set along.
Jf Omaha wants the city to be respect- ;
able I think they made a mistake when j
they closed up the redllght district, as a i
respectablo woman can't go along the ,
street but what they are molested by I
some one. Jf an American cltlsen Is I
feeding a few hundred able-bodied men
and en the other hand will turn out a
sick person, and refuse to pay the party
what he owe. Is he a good cltlaen? I
should say not! If we have not charity
In our hearts we hare not the love of
God In u. This Individual that waa
turned down by this party was assisted
by Adjutant James of the Salvation
Army. So I wish to Inform the public
at' large to be careful where they arc
putting their money. These statement
are true and can be proved.
Don't give your money to a concern
that uses the money for pleasure trip
and holler for more. A part of our so
called high society leaders are Indulged
to use cigarettes end that is a part of
the reason why some go wrong. Just
for the sake of gelling a few tine ilothes
to wear and to bo In this so-called high
sooietv. If they lould see how they look,
smoking and drinking, they certainly
would refrain from doing suoh If the
board of welfare can endorse the tango
dance as they have today, .they can en
doise tho redllght dlstrlot to prevent the
Insults on the street. There Is Just as
much sense to this, for I would not care
to see some of the tango dancing that Is
being done today.
