application of our modern methods of combat

nal victories In late years with these mothods.
Wo have flung farther than any other nation
tho ndavneo lines of sanitation and wo havo
wrought wonders for humanity both In our own
and othor lands that havo como under our pro
tection. Moro than that, we think wo have dis
covered scientifically tho truth about this
deadly disease Doth In Havana and San Fran
cisco our, medical exports havo determined after
thorough investigation and experiment that this
malady is spread by rats affected by the germ.
In San Francbico soon after tho earthquake a
great raid was made on rats to such an extent.
in fact, as to convince tho people of that city
that they had substantially ovorcomo tho dan
ger of bubonic plague.

task would appoar to be tho killing off of all
tho rats within tho reach of the city. It is not
unlike the yellow fever propagated by tho mos

Canada, England, India.
At tho time of the American revolution and sev
eral times slnco the Canadians havo bficn in a frame
of mind to cast off their allegiance to the British
crown and either set tip an Independent government
of 'their own or annex themselves peacefully to the
United States. Nothing but lack of that tact which
constitutes true statesmanship and diplomacy on the
part of the United States government kept Canada
outside of our boundary lines. We talk about a
continental nation as something to bo desired, but
wo have put It away from ua at least three times In
our history. New York Commercial,
This goes straight to tho point of a view
which many h61d, but aro loath to express. It
seoms to bo a tacitly accoptod fashion for Amer
icans to talk differently than they actually feel
"with reference to Canada's attltudo toward
Mother England. Yot ovonts of tho last few
years, togother with tho undisguised utterances
of some ot Canada's strongest statesmen, af
ford nmplo ground for believing that tho upper
most thought In the popular Canadian mind
today Is ultimate Independence, whether fol
lowed by union with tho United States or not.
Thoso who' keep up on current history know
that already Canada's practical attitude toward
Kngland Is one of Independence. Sho pays little
toward tho running of tho British government,
except what she puts in for the army and navy.
She spurns three shiploads of London's Idlo
men and forcos tholr return to England. Sho
does about as sho plcasos, in fact, and dear old
Mother England, though with a grimace now
'and then, trios to mako horsolf bollovo she likes
it and says nothing.
The Now York Commercial, howovor, boos

Canada, acting in concert with tho United
States, at first declined to rocoivo Hindu coolies
at British Columbia ports. England urged
their reception and Canada sullonly ylolded, but
oontlnues to ranklo ovor It. British India is
aroused over tho Immigration laws of British
provinces Australia, Now Zealand and Canada.

the Commercial. Strangor things havo hap

The Chautauqua Map.
Tho completion ot forty years slnco tho In
stitution ot tho parent Chautauqua assombly by
Bishop Vincent Is bringing out a great deal ot
historic remlnlsconoa and lntorostlng Informa
tion about the movement, which has grown and
spread beyond all dreams ot Its founders. None
of the exhibits is more pertinent than the map
that has been drawn to show tho nation-wide
scope of tho Chautauqua and the distribution of
the local assemblies. Wo aro told that while
tho parent Institution Is still maintained annu
ally at tho original Lake Chautauqua, more
than 2,800 'chautauquas are to bo held this,
summer, each represented by a dot on the map,
and the dots nro to be found apparently In every
etato ot the union except possibly Arizona, Ne
vada and Mississippi. Particularly noteworthy
is the fact that Iowa occupies first place as a
chautauqua stamping ground, gauged either by
absolute number ot In the ratio to area' or pop
ulation. Nebraska is not so thickly dotted as
.Its neighbor to the east, but. is woll sprinkled
with chautauqua assemblies, far more numer
ous than any state west, or any stato south ot
tho Ohio rlvor or New England. Whether tho
chnutauqua Is cause or effect, it unquestionably
accompanies a widespread popular Intelligence.

Calls Omaha Behind the Times.
OMAHA, July S-To lha Editor of The

living originated out here In the west, aa
we easterners (I reside In New York
city) call this station; but you are aurel'y
behind tho times in the. license to the
individual for fourth ef July celebrating.
I arrived In Omaha at 11:90 Friday even
ing and headed for on of your promi
nent hotels. At a busy trannfer corner
my first sight was a group ot male adults
shooting Roman candles at each other.
Drunks of oil sorts were handling fire
works promiscuously. After being as
signed a room I watted until 3 a. m.
before some "men" on the adjoining cor
ner had exhausted their supply of giant
crackers. At 6 a. m. It started again.
Aside from the pecuniary results to the
small tradesmen, and an outlet for chil
dren and grown hUmins whose sense for
horso-play and coarser amusement Is
highly developed, ot what earthly use Is
the noisy discharge of fireworks? Tho
average person Is hard-working, and
pushed to the extreme In the demands on
his or her nervous system these days,
and In trying to be of use to society Is
entitled to mutual consideration ot each
member. Allowing "rough-neck" tac
tics to prevail is hardly in accordance
with preeent-day thought
Had any big fire Insurance people been
on the streets at the time I came in tho
merchants and fire and police depart
ments would have been properly taken
to task, Tho police were conspicuous by
their absence. The ohanoe of Injury to
passersby was great and the shock to

. rhMti of Irrlamtion Problem.
NORTH PLATTE, Neb., July 6.-T0 th
Editor of The Bee: I notlcod In a recent
Issue of Tho Beo that tho Omaha Com
mercial olub has beoome interested in
somo of the problems which up to the
present tlmo have been generally supposed
to be ot benefit only to the pcoblo of the
westorn half of the state.
During tho last ten years the national
reclamation service has been experiment
ing in tho western states in constructing
reservoirs and applying the water to ben
eficial un in tho Irrigation of crops. A
great deal of money haa been spent by
tho government In this experimental
work. A great many mistakes have been
made. However, these ten years of edu
cational and experimental work by tho
government haa demonstrated -the fact
that the government can control and Con
serve the water of the national streams.
In Wyoming on tha North Platte river
tho government has constructed a reser-
voir holding 1,000,000 acre feet or water,
and never yet haa been able to completely
fill tho reaorvolr from all of tha flood and
surplus waters of tho North Platte river.
During the winter and spring months the
government is able to make tho North
Platte river a bed Of dry sand except for
the small quantity of water that enters
from tho tributaries in Nebraska. Tho
government is now constructing largo res
ervoirs tn the hills In the northern part
of Scott's Bluff county to fill thoaa reser
voirs from the waters of the river east
of the largo reservoir In 'Wyoming.
irritation enaineers have figured that
the water supply of tho North Platti
river when properly conserved la suffi
cient to furnish an ample flow of water
In the river to irrigate all tho lands from
the western boundary of Nebraska as far
east as Irrigation Is necessary. Tho dif
ficulty under tha presont reclamation act
and the rod tape at Washington, with
tho attltudo ot Its officials, Is that these
watera are held In the reservoirs and not
applied to beneficial uso during tho sum
mer months. The department officials are
talking that the cost of all of tho gov
ernment's experimental work. Including
the mistakes of Its engineers, Shall be re
turned to It In the salo of water, and In
addition that the government ba .paid tho
profits. '
At tho lost legislature I secured the
passage of tho Joint resolution request
ing our delegation in congress to nave
surveys made of the Platte river and tho
territory in the south-central and woat
ern part of the stato, for the purpose
Of ascertaining whether It Was feasible
to conduet the surplus waters ot the
Platte 'across the divide to irrlgato tha
hlchlands of southwest Nebraska. I un
derstand some preliminary survey work Is
about to bo done by the reclamation serv

will mean tha addition ot billions ot dol
litre to tho wealth of Nebraska. It will
mean that Instead of crop failure for
hearly ten years In southwestern Ne
braska there will be an abundance of

senators and representatives from eastern

bills. We ot the western part of the
state believe that eastern Nebraska.
should be as much Interested In tha wel
fare of the western part ot tha stato as
It Is in the problems which affect only
eastern Nebraska local Interests.
I believe that the Omaha Commercial
club haa started a work, which, If they
will follow up and co-operate with the
irrigation association ot western Ne
braska, that will be of material benefit
to the entire stata ot Nebraska. The
Commercial club of Lincoln ought to also
take hold ot this question and assist tn
solving these problems. :
