This Is a great time to be an American citi-

enviable opportunity an opportunity of service
to mankind. Millions of men, women and chil

the great powers stand In the position of help

the heart to give and last we are restrained by

One Way to Eve Legislative Time.
The legislative doctors are again trying to
prescribe a remedy to stop the waste of time on
visionary, impractical or freak proposals with
which the bill files of every session are loaded.
To shut off or limit the Introduction of bills Is
not feasible in states like Nebraska where the
constitution stand's in the way, and gives every
law-maker the privilege of sponsoring any num
ber of measures he sees fit. There Is, however,
one effective, way to winnow out the chaff that
is entirely constitutional, though Its application
would require a governor with a real backbone.
Let the chief executive, who Is a co-ordinate
branch of thai law-makine- bodv and hnu nega
tive is equal to the votes of a third of the mem
bership in each house, go over the bills as they
make their appearance, and announce at once
his indention to veto all that on their face are
not entitled to consideration. If the proposer
persist in pushing his bill notwithstanding
these odds, be will know what he Is up against,
but for the vast majority of such bills the gover
nor's elimination list would be the final word.
Diseases of Battlefields
'Mef Coming: Back.
Just as The Bee sincerely speeded "Met" on
his way and wished him success when he trans
ferred his activities from Omaha to Lincoln, so
'we now welcome him back to the local Journal
istic field.' As "Cap'n" Cuttle used to say, "If
anybody kin,' he kin," and If anybody can make
good on a democratic weekly in Nebraska, that
man Is Richard L. Metcalfe. "Met" has a host
of warm personal friends everywhere, and more
of theru here in Omaha than anywhere else.
The only trouble with "Met," if it be really a
trouble," 1 that he has an Inherent blindness to
the . faults and,, weaknesses of the democratic
party. -But that Is ..what democrats in those
parts 'want, for they never were so self-critical
or exacting as republicans. The only cloud over
"Met's" re-advent Is the threatened extinction
from the Journalistic firmament, if only for a
little while,, of the scintillations of Colonel
Henry Clay Richmond, whose place, as editor
of "The Nebraekan," Governor Metcalfe Is to

Maladies that asuail an army In the field, with espe
cial reference to the present European war. are dla
cuHKd by a contributor to the Illustrated London News.
According to this writer, the British troops st the
front have hitherto been ainstilarly free from the at
tacks of auch diseases. In other campaigns, he says,
disease has slain thousands where bullets have killed
hundreds, and ho thinks It Is only too likely that be
fore long the present Immunity will reaee. Why dis
ease should attack masses of men In the prime ef life,
living In the open air, and on the whole well fed and
clothed at first slirht may seem strange. The Name
haa generally been laid upon the drinking water. But
even when thle la properly guarded, an Irremovable
source of danger remains In the myriad of fllea bred
In the carrion and filth, that Inevitably collect round

knows, these Insects are carriers of Infection. Luckily
with the approach ot winter their activity ceases.
fold Weather a Preventive.
"Of the diseases which aaaall an army in the
field." aays the Newa, "a few stand out so promi
nently that all others may practically be neglected
These are cholera, typhoid fever, dysentery, and pneu
monia; and they have thla In common, that they ars
all caused by specific bacilli. Thus cholera Is the
child, so to speak, of th dreadd vibrio, and pneu
monia that of pneumonococcus; while typhoid and
dysentery have each their own special microbe. Their
modes of attack are, however, different, for the pneu
monococcus enter the organism by the nose and mouth
mouth only; typhoid and dysentery through the a'l
mentary canal, while the way In which chllera Is propa
gated Is at presfnt unknown. All four, perhaps, have
this In commwn, that while the microbes causing them
are probably always present with us that of cholera

a subject previously weakened by exposure, bad feed

"The first means of combating these enemies is,
therefore. Isolation. Directly a soldier Is shown to he
suffering from any of these diseases he should he
separated from his fellows and removed to a place
where his rjecta, sputa, and the like can no longer
form a center of contamination This may seem a
counsel of perfection to thoae who know the condi
tions prevalent In war time, but much might be dno
by careful preparation, and Isolation hospitals at th
base might be organised by civilians who are but too
apt to think that surgical cases are the only ones
worth attention. If It be true, as announced In the
dally press, that the Austrlsns are already suffering
from cholera, no time should be lost In making these
preparations, and the service thus rendered to the Just
cause of the allies might easily prove more vslusblo
than many more sensational."
riahtlaar Off Typhoid.
The writer next takes up the subject of prevention,
which, he reminds us, Is proverbially better than cum.
First among preventive measures la Inoculation, which,
In the case of typhoid especially, haa been abundantly
proved to be effective. Experiment leaves no reason
able doubt on this point, and Inoculation against ty
phoid Is now compulsory In the armies of several
countries. Most of the British officers have volun
tarily submitted to. It. Then comes careful avoidance
of any drinking water other than that boiled an I
filtered supplied to the men by the transport and sup
ply service. Nor Is the question of clothing to be
neglected. The soldier may be trusted to keep him
self warm for comfort's -sake; but a belt of flannel
worn around the stomach next to the skin Is saM
to have proved Ita efficiency as a preventive ef
cholera and dysentery In oriental countries. To quote
"In these matters the soldier can do much to
help himself. There la still the psychological aid
of the caae In which he must depend a good deal i-.i
his officers. A light heart will often carry Its owm r
unscathed through centers of Infection which will
prove fatal to the mentally depressed, and la one of
the most valuable prophylactics known to science.
"Hence the officer should do what he ran to keep
up the spirits of his men, should encourage them to
sing, and should take caro that they hear any gool
newa which Is going. By so doing he will be rendering
another Invaluable ervice to his country, even If he
adds thereby to the csres on bis already overburdened
shoulders. Fortunately, If there Is any faith to be
placed In reports, the natural temperament of Tommy
Atkins In war will make his task In thla respect a
light one." ,
. The. Private letter for Publio PemiaL
The president's lengthy letter on the re
serve banks addressed ostensibly to Secretary
MeAdoo of the treasury, but Intended for public
consumption, reminds us of the facility tor pre
senting matters direct to the people by this hlt-tlng-over-the-shoulder
method. It has long been
In vogue in the White House. Presidents before
Mr. Wilson have employed It. Of course, as,
anybody can see, If President Wilson really
meant to discuss these things only with Mr.
MeAdoo, his son-in-law, he could easily take
them up in a more direct, personal way most
any evening around the family hearth, but such,
of course, la not the' purpose. The private let
ter for publio perusal haa come to hold its own
place lu the relations of the president to the
people, and Instead of being a personal com
munication, Is distinctly a public, document,
generally assuming, as it does in this Instance,
the form of advocating and defending adminis
tration acta and policies.
A Prediction That Needs Revision.
Shortly before election, Senator N. P. Dodf
Jr., in a burst of i exuberance let the Lincoln
Journal In ou the ground floor with a predic
tion., which he had printed in that newspaper,
that "Howell will carry Douglas county easily."
and adding, "I have a deep conviction that 'the
republican ticket is going to 'win in Douglas
county, and that Howell will run away ahead
of his ticket." Now that the official canvass Is
concluded, the final figures disclose that Sena
tor Dodge polled 11.107 votes in Douglas
county, as against 4,862 for Mr. Howell. Evi
dently, the mistake lay la not having Mr. Dodge

Those Lincolnltea are certainly wide awake,
and on the Job all the time, aa witness the ap

it across, and get away with It, far be It from
us to complain.
The paradox of the age Is that Mr. Rocke

oil painting. Not that he lost the money, but
that he got beat on anything In oil.
Twice Told Tales
Among the. Highbrows.
A famous bsseball man la a prolific story-teller,
and oftentimes his yarns are the source of amuse
ment to his friends. Here Is one ot the new ones:
"A friend of mine, a metropolitan merchant, who
had amassed quite a fortune by close application to
his business, 'was being entertained one evening at a
friend's house, where he encountered a number cf
young women graduates, whose conversation auddenly
turned to a discussion of the development ot the Eng
lish novel.- .
"The merchant speedily experienced a feeling
within which told hlro that he was 'out of it.' After
a few minutes of animated colloquy, during a brief
respite, one of the young women turned to hint sweetly
and asked: - . ,
. " 'What do you think of Fielding, Mr. Eliur
" 'Oh, fielding is Important, of course,' our friend
quickly responded, 'but it Isn't worth much unless
you've got good pitchers and men who can bit tho

heartfelt appreciation to all voters of

placed In me. Including the newspaper,
for their very generous and valuable
Though elected on the democratic
ticket, I wish to confess that, so far
as my official life as a senator Is con
cerned, I ceased to be a partisan on the
td ot November. I am willing to accept
as correct the facetious remark of a
cltlsen In a cigar store the other day
who, In answer to a question as to the
division of the parties from this county
In the state senate, sal J: "There are two
democrats snd two republicans and
Qulnby, who don't care for either."
Bo far as my official activities are con
cerned I don't, further than to aid In
tho fulfillment of every pledge made by
the democratic state and county plat
forms. Aside, however, from these party
pledges tbat we democrats have made,
the voters have endorsed some pledges
the republican candidates made In the
fact that these same voters have elected
nine out of the seventeen representa
tives from thle county. I have respect
for their mandate as well.
Therefore, I suggest that, since we all
should respect our Individual and party
mandates from the people and respect to
the fullest snd the best the true Inter
ests of the people of Omaha. South
Omaha, their suburbs and the entire
county, all of us ought to set aslda
our partisanship In this service.
For these reasons, I ask the other six
teen reprsentatlves from this county to
express their opinion through your
columns ss to the advisability of hold
ing a few meetings during the coming
month to consider the best Interests of
thle community, and how they may be
served In the legislature. Also such
plans as may best serve to weld Into
closer bonds the relatione between Doug
las county and the state.
I suggest this publicly, rather than
personally, because I sincerely believe
we are publio servants, and csn have no
Interests apart from the public good.
