To Vindicate Omaha's Good Name.
Politics is olitirs, the election Is over, and
no one has any donlre to stir up dead Issues.
But Omaha, as the unfortunate victim ot the re
rent campaign, cannot afford, by remaining si
lent, to let the damage done to the city's good
name stand without offset.
Omaha must not let the people renlding in
other parts of the state rest under the Impree
rlon that ours Is-a community where "gunmen"
and "gangsters" roam the streets unmolested;
that all our civic affairs are directed by a com
bine of greedy corporations and "the under
world;" or that life here is steeped in Immoral
ity and vice to the extent that it Is Intolerable,
for It Is a matter ot indisputable fact, that
Omaha will compare more than favorable with
other titles for good order, cleanliness, law ob
servance and attractive living conditions.
The cry that some one must "clean up"
Omaha In order to make It 'safe" for out-of-town
people to send their wives here to shop, or their
thildren to attend school, Is worse than gratui
tous, because they tan go to no other city with
greater safety or where they will be exposed to
fewer pitfalls. Political demogogues and their
newspaper organs who spread this sort of talk
broadcast do Omaha an Incalulable Injury.
It has been suggested that the Commercial

Influenced that these onslaughts were tor polit
ical purposes only, and are built upon no substan
tifcl foundation. Let us one and all, while not
abating in the slightest our endeavors to make
our city constantly better, Join hands In a con
certed effort to stop this mlsrepreHentatlon, and
to focus attention on Omaha's good points, and
on its many superior virtues.
The New School Board.
The triumphant election of the school board
candidates put In the field by the Citizen's com
mittee Insures a complete recasting ot the school
board. The moet gratifying thing about this
prospect Is, as The Bee has more than once de
clared, the assured elevation of the standard of
the board management, by which our schools
will have the benefit Of some ot the best business
end professional talent In our city.
The problem, however, confronting the new
school board Is by no means a simple one, nor
is it to be solved .by a mere shifting of the con
trol. The problem haa three different sides to
it the financial, the Instructional and the
physical equipment of school plant and the
requirement la.to hold expenses within revenues,
secur the greatest efficiency from the teach
ing corps, and provide new school buildings
as needed to accommodate Increasing demands.
If the new board will tackle this three-fold prob
lem In earnest, It will be entitled to have, and
will have, the cordial support and eo-operatloa
of all good 'citizens interested In the improve
ment of our public school system.
The LeisoiJ tot Americans'. .1 . v :
The noble response of Americans to the cry
of want from Europe should deepen in us the
realisation that "Pride goelh before destruction
and a haughty spirit before a fall," to the point
of making us see that we have no right, even
though surrounded with peace and plenty, to
become prodigal of our bounties.
The ravages of war are swift and sure.-Over
night nations are plunged from affluence to
want. We are not contemplating war, nor fear
ing it, but so sure as that two and two make
four, we have got to curb some of the tendencies
that have grown up among us In this period of
prodigious wealth and prosperity or reap the
deplorable consequences In some form or an
other. It Is no longer denied that, despite all the
other economical factors, extravagance cuts a
vital figure In the high cost of our living so
much so as to Justify the pun, "the cost of high
Now, quite apart from conditions in Europe,
we have sufficient warning in things nearer
home to make us see the importance ot this les
son. As individuals, as families and as a race of
people, the .thing for us to do is to cut our
cloth more nearly according to our pattern, sim
plify our tastes, conserve our resources and get
down nearer the basis of living within our legit
imate means. What a wonderful thing it would
be at this very time if we had the power to re
cover all we have wasted in recent years and
end it along with our other bounties to the hun
gry, half-clad sufferers of Europe? It would be
all "velvet" for us, so to speak, leaving us atlll
with all or our present possessions. Surely, our
contact with thla saturnalia of want and wick
edness abroad will bring us close enough to this
lesson as to get the full force of It.
The Suffrage' Campaign.
Whether they have lost or won, the women
who have been actively engaged In the suffrage
campaign in Nebraska, either for and against the
amendment, deserve congratulations. It is only
fair to say that they have conducted their con
test on a plane higher than the usual level ot
men's political campaigns, and have indulged In
few personalities, and resorted rarely to petti
ness. Whatever auffrage plana and programs may
be for the future, the women on both sides have
acquitted themselves with credit They have
doubtless learned a lot by this experience, not
only about men's politics, but also about women's
politics, and If they will accept the result as
representing the preseat opinion ot Nebraska
voters, no one will have reason to regret the
time and effort spent to secure the popular Ver
Problem In political mathematics for some
folks: Kansas polled 500,000 votes, Of which
200,000 were cast by women, and the entire re
publican state ticket was elected by Immense
pluralities. The proof of the pudding is In the
eating, is it not?
It Is reasonable to assume that at least one
member of President Wilson's cabinet will not
go Into mourning over the defeat of Roger
Sullivan as democratic candidate for United
States senator in Illinois.

now on their way to England. But while there is
a market for wool here, other parts of the world arc
glutted with the commodity. Cutting off of German
and Belgian markets has forced a big reduction In thS
price of South African wool. Ocrmany and Belgium

The Morlsage oa Law.
ALMA, Neb., Nov. 4. To the Editor of
The Bee: On account of the criticism of
the Smith mortgage tax law from many
Sources 1 feel that. In fairness and Justice
to this laW, an . explanation should be
mnde which win enable those not familiar
with it to understand Just what It is.
Thla Is one of the fairest and most Just
laws ever passed In Nebraska, both for
borrower and- lender, In my opinion, and
should be understood.
Let us take an example; Mr. A owns
resl estate property clear to the value
of say f.1,000, which Is taxable. Mr. B
has ii.ooo In money which Is also tax
able. Now Mr. A feels that If he had
$1,000 in money to stock and Improve hln
place It would enable him to Increase
his Income and the value of his prop
erty, and he is willing to pay a reason
able rate to get this amount. Mr. B
feels that his money is Idle, Is an ex
pense for taxes, and he would like to
Invest It where it will be safe and bring
him some returns. NoW. Mr. A says to
Mr. B: - If you will let me have your
$1,000 in money I will pay the taxes on It
for you and will give you per cnt on In
tcrest cn It in addition ror the use of it
and will secure you by a mortgage en
my property worth $3,000." Mr. B re
piles: "I Will let you have It at per
cent under those Conditions. If I had to
psy the taxes on it (or the mortgage) I
would have to charge you 7 per cent or
per cent, which, considering the rates
of taxes, would be about the same as
you offer." A docs not pay taxes upon
but $3,000 atlll because he Is permitted by
the law to floduct the amount of the mor
tgage from the valuation of his land.
This law has enabled A to ' get this
money for from 1 per cent to 8 per cent
less and there Is no loss to the town,
county or stale in taxes. Thla Would have
a tendenry also to raise the salable
value of the real estate property of Mr.
A. Wtmt Is there unfit or unfair about It?
Under the former law, every time a
loan was made on real estate property,
there was double taxation to the amount
of tho loan which was unfair and un
just because no more actual taxable
value was created.
Our state supreme court has held that
a bank Is the same as an Individual and
has the Same responsibilities and priv
ileges. Tho court would not permit dis
crimination against th? banks In favor
of individuals und-r this law. The fact
that th banks vhave been saved this
burden ot over taxation, or double tax
ation, to' themselves has not lost tho
municipality, town, county or state a
cent, as will readily be nen by the ex
ample of A and B above. Editors and
legislatures who are clamoring for a re
peal of this law, or" any amendment to
it, should take a second thought.
