The Live Stock Situation.
When the Chicago stockyards closed down
because of the discovery of that deadly hoof
and mouth dlaeaae among cattle, It was for a
period of tea days, but the fear now la that ten
days may by no means suffice to warrant re
opening the yards. The dlaeaae seems to be
more widespread than at first believed. It has
been found to exist in other states besides those
in which It was originally located. Yet every
effort la being exerted to guard against Ita
further spread and prolong the period of de
pression. One of the remarkable features of
the situation la the celerity with which the great
machinery of the governmental inspection and
treatment Is thrown Into action. The Importance
of the live stock industry Is also emphasised by
the government's action in sharing loaaea. which
will mount up Into millions. It must be re
membered that the average receipts at Chi
cago alone are $1,250,000 in live stock,
that 40,000 persons are employed In those yards.
Multiplying this $1,260,000 by the number of
days of Idleness gives some Idea of the scope of
the situation. Then the comprehension' is al
most staggered to think of other great packing
centers, auch ss Kansaa City, Omaha, St. Louis
being similarly affected. Thua far, we are happy
to say, this Is not the case, and we will hope
the immunity may continue until this cattle
plague la stamped out.
A Little-Plain Talking-.
In the afterglow of the election it la time for
a little plain talking. What we say, however,
we want It distinctly understood, la with no de
sire to "rub It In" on any one. but rather to
point out a lesson or two which might other
wise be overlooked.
First and foremost, the vote cast in Omaha
and Douglas county pro vet conclusively that
tnlk about "a Third ward gang" being in control
Icre la the veriest rot. After proclaiming that
lie wanted no Third ward votee, Mr. Howell
naturally got mighty few In that ward, but thla
la a mere drop In the bucket. Mr. Howell lost'
not only the Third ward, but also every other
ward In the city of Omaha, Including his own 1
home ward, except two, of which he carried one
by fifteen and the other by ninety and in ad
dition he lost South Omaha and the country pre
cincts. He received nearly 1,900 votes less In
Douglas county than Governor Aldrlch polled
two yeara ago, and Governor Aldrleh did not
live in Douglas county. A "gang" might pos
sibly dominate one or two wards, but only a
diseased mind will imagine that a majority of
the votes cast In the best residence districts of
Omaha are controlled by any Third ward Influ
ence. In the second ilace, the election Just held
vaa held under the ao-called honest elections
law, which, presumably, closed every avenue
through which false registration,' colonization.
repeating, or any apeciea of ballot box fraud
could possibly be committed. After the election
two yeara. ago, the defeated candldatea filled
the air with cbargea of crooked work la the
election booths, but no suspicion attaches to the
conduct of the present election boards. Yet in
the footings, Governor Morehead, who won out
In Douglas county two yeara ago by 8.428 Is
found to have actually increased his lead to
$,822.. Obviously, it ia not the length of the
ticket, nor the personnel of the election ma
chinery, nor the counting of the ballot that ia
the deciding factor when the people know what
they want, and what they do not want. ,
In the third place, the burdea of any undesir
able candidate on the ticket weights down the
whole ticket, and endangers the other candi
dates, who, without this handicap, would be ab
solutely assurred or winning. On the face of the
registration, Omaha and Douglas county are over
whelmingly republican, and whenever a repub
lican ticket Is presented that can command
united party aupport, the votea here may be
counted on to give decisive republican majorltiea.
At to a State Commiiiioner of Education.
With the move to abolish the office of state
superintendent of Instruction, as well as4he of
fice of county superintendent, aa elective of
fices, The Bee is In hearty sympathy. The con
version of these places Into appointive posi
tions is part of our plan for shortening the bal
lot. We see no more reason or argument for
having these . educational position filled by
popular election tbaa for almllarly chooalng
city auperlntendenta, university chancellors,
normal school presidents, or high school prin
cipals by popular vote
When It cornea to a recommendation for a
nvike-ahlft commission or board, either atate or
county, to b vested with the power to' appoint
to these supervlalng positions, we are not ao
aure we are In accord. Why haa the governor
named a atate board to name a commlsaloner of
education, when we now have all the executive
euu auuiiuiBirauon maenmery oi government
that we need, and more too? An appointed com
missioner of education, if he Is the right kind of
a man, can do the Job Just as well, and better,
by hlmaelf, without any board of aupernumer
ariea over hlra. ,

Our Barbed Wire in War
Development of Idea.
Some forty yrara ago when Joseph F. Olldilen, a
farmer of te Kalb, 111., waa gripped with tha Wea of
makln wire frticM with barba en them, he didn't
havo th flicker of a thought of the varltd uaes if
the Mea In practical operation. What CUIdden wanted
waa some aharp pointa on plain wire fencea which
would make anlmala more cautloua about ruahlng
eealnst the fnce. He didn't dream of the fortune
which came to hint later, or that hla little pointed de
vice would become factor In the mortality records
Of war. The fact that It halted all living thtnera com
mended It to military mm. and today barbed wire
entanglements are quite common In the weatern lone
of war In Europe.
"And right here It may be aald," writes a corre
epondnt of the New York. Times, "that aoldlera who
have been halted by wire entanalementa while making
a charge or maneuvering for a new poaltlon aay the
devil never Invented anything nastier. Bulleta and
bayoneta make wounds that cause no suffering or
that ahock sensibility, but barbed wire tears and
annoys and gives no escape.
Ea rope Fellows America.
"Poaaibllltlea seen by American military atudenta
In barbed wire were soon carried to the armies of
Europe, and engineers In every country In the world
wera put to work devlalng means for uaing thla new
device. Natural forerunners of the barbed wire en
tanglement had been In use from the earliest tltnea.
Roman aoldlera had defended their poaitlona with
abatla. They had- held off their barbarian enemies by
felling treea, sharpening tha enda of the branches, and
maaalng tbem with their pointa turned away from the
Eternal City. Fralaea sharp-pointed plies had been
planted In the earth In front of armies for their
enemies to wound themselves against or to hnlt the
onrush of a charge till the piles could be remove!
"Then, later, as Europe advanced In wealth an3
more rnoney and skill were put into devices offensive
and defanalve. the cheval-de-frlse came Into vogue,
and up to the time barbed wire supplanted It military
people looked upon It as highly effective in some cir
cumstances. The cheval-de-frlse Is a log of wood,
usually aquaxe. nine Inches by nine inches and twelve
feet long. Through this log holes are bored six Inches
apart, and Into thee holes aharp-polnted stakes of
wood or Iron are driven. Thla makea a device thnt
resembles a series of exaggerated sawbucks. At the
end of the log are rings by which they may be locked
together, making an obstruction of any desired length
that cannot be rolled aside, cannot be vaulted oy
cavalry or climbed by Infantry until tha stakes are
broken off or bent aside. But the use of the cheval-de-frlse
la limited. Like abatla and fralses, It Is valu
able for guarding the approach to a permanent posi
tion, where there la ample time for building and
placing It' The cheval-de-frlse Is useful for barri
cading a street or road, and till recently European
armiea carried with them the materials snd artisans
to put them together. The material for four cheva.-de-frlMS
would be a load for two horses. A mile of
the special, fine, steel barbed wire made for military
purpoaea weighs from ninety to 100 pounds. And be H
remembered that for cruelty and atrength this military
wlro la a hundred times mora efficient than the ordi
nary agricultural fence wire of commerce.
Secrecy of Preaeat Methods.
"Nobody outside of the European armies' now at
war knows how they are using barbed wire entangle
ments or In what form they are building them, for
the englneera of each army are constantly devising
new methods, and these new Ideas are not divulged,
even In time of peace. But the dispatches tell of cav
alry and Infantry running headlong Into meshea of
unyielding steel thorns, that rouse the Imagination to
tha horror of the wounds they Inflict One uae for
barbed wire that seems to be new la reported from
Belgium. There certain roads that It waa deairabli
to have passable to tha people of the country were
made Impassable to an army by building slgsag fences
from aide to aide. The peasant, going to market,
might pass by traveling slowly and double dlatance,
but an army could not tread such a mate and must
halt to destroy it
"While tha European armiea probably have built
entanglements on new plans, a description of how an
entanglement might be effectively constructed. Issued
for tho Instruction of the British army a few years
ago, will give the layman an Idea of the effectiveness
of such defenses. First tha ground to. be protected
and over which the enemy must pasa Is laid off In
five-foot squares. At each earner of each - square a
post Is driven Into the ground till eighteen Inches re
main above the aurface. Thla ayatem of aquarea ex
tends indefinitely along the Una to be defended, and
the common practice la to make It aix aquarea deep,
thus insuring aa entanglement thirty feet wide through
which the attacking forces must pass. The wire la
strung from poat to post and fastened with rtaplea.
Then other wires are atrung diagonally from posts to
opposite corners, and criss-crossed again and again,
till a network aa Intricate aa a bramble patch stands
high enough from the earth to throw a horse or a man
among the terrible ateel thorns. The staple, are nnl.
driven home, nor are the wires stretched. If wirea
were taut they could be cut with a aword or bayonet
blow. Aa they are constructed the wire gives under
the blow and the only way that has been devised to
get through an entanglement la td atop and cut each
wire with nlppera. Theae nlppera are carried by aol
dlera nowadays, but it la a long Job to get throusli,
for every wire must be cut at every post. Wire by
tons and posts by tbouaanda are carried with the
armiea, for be It Invasion or defense no general knows
when he will have the enemy behind hlra. In placing
entanglements deep grasa, tall grain fields and thickets
are selected where possible, for the effectiveness of
the wire Is far greater If the attacking force hurls
itself upon the obstruction unawares.''

OMAHA, Nov. 1-To the Editor of The
Bee: The Scandinavian Toung Women's
ChrlMlan association of Omaha will cele
brate Its twentieth anniversary on De
cember 12. 1SH. It desires very much to
clesr Itself of an Indebtedness cf 17.509
by that time, and therefore for the first
time in Its history makes a general ap
peal for financial aaslatance. Part of
this Indebtedness consists of a mortgage
on tha buildlnga and real estate of the
The association haa been endorsed as
being worthy of aupport by the Asso
ciated Retailers of Omaha and tH chan
ties endorsement committee, representing
the Commercial club and the Associated
Charities of Omaha.
The Hcandlnavlan ' Toung Women's
Christian association waa founded by
Maria Holnass, its president and treas
urer, In 1893, in tha city of Omaha. Miss
Holnass was ably assisted In founding
thla Institution by Ellen Nelson, who Is
now second vice president and matron of
the association. In 1896 the association
Incorporated under the laws of the state
The object of the association la to do
a general Toung Women's Christian as
sociation work in a field not reached by
the English Toung Women's Christian as
sociation. A large number of Scandi
navian young women come to Omaha,
from time to time, from the Scandinavian
countries, and from the farming region
tributary to Omaha, of which many can
not apeak the English language, and
many are unaccuetomed to the waya of
the city. The association provides, aa
far aa possible, a proper borne for these
and other young woman, under Christian
Influence, at minimum cost to the women,
a place where they can have home privi
leges, use of library, sewing room, piano,
etc., without additional expense, and a
place where they can secure assistance In
getting employment, advice, medical at
tention and other care when needed. In
the association home Instruction la given
In the domestic ectences, English lan
guage, music and other matters tending
to better qualify the young women to oc
cupy their place In society and honorably
snd properly aupport themselves.
From the association's beginning up
until 1904 Its work was conducted in hired
quarters. Ja the year ISOt, however, the
association constructed Its own building,
containing thirty-six rooms. Including one
large hall, parlor, library, office, kitchen,
dining room, sewing room, laundry and
twenty-eight aleeplng rooms. Since that
time the association haa purchased the
seven-room cottage on the north of Its
main building, which Is used entirely for
sleeping rooms for young, women. The
association la able to house fifty young
women at one time, which capacity ia
taxed at all times. In fact, because of
lack of room, applicanta for admiaalon
are being constantly turned away. The
association la nonaectarlan and various
religious faiths are represented among
Its members and those cared for la the
eesoclstion's buildlnga. Among the resi
dent membership are stenographers,
bookkeepers, clerks, seamstresses, maids,
nurses and students. Many young wo
men who come to the city te take places
In the homes as household maids look
upon the association building as their
home-that is, the place to which they
can go and visit when off from work,
and where they can go and secure ad
vice and medical attention when needed,
and even atay whan out of employment
or disabled from work. The association
makes a specialty of assisting Its young
women te secure honorable and safe em
ployment, using equal care In recom
mending young women for places, and
Investigating the character of the em
ployer and the conditions under which
they must work.
The association 1a managed by a board
of trustees, elected by the membera of
the association, and by a board of ad
vtaors, elected by tha board of trustees.
