A Kew Year Vision.
Whether the incoming new year sees the end
of the European confllct-at-arms or not. It cer
tainly win witness an unprecedented expansion
of the spirit of peace, stimulated by the reflex
action of the war.
Dally this Impulse Is growing and spreading
among Individuals and peoples, outraged at this
hldoous horror of human slaughter and deadly
destruction. The Oerman crown prince's de
nunciation of the raging conflagration as the
most stupid and senceless war of history is find
ing approving expression everywhere. Most
men see but one recompense, namely, the sup
pression or repression of pro-militarism to
which the cataclysm Is ascribed. In the popu
lar mind It Is not so much a matter of defeating
and humiliating this side or that, as to keep
within bounds the spirit of pro-mllltarlsm so
long dominant In the lands now at war.
And It this Is done, even In measure, it
means the ascendancy of peace as the controlling
power of nations In fact as It has been by pre
tense. This Is the vision which, with the ad
vent of the year 1915, looms up like a giant
silhouette against the dark horixon of war.
Come what may as between the present com
batants, It la certain that nations will be slower
to submit their differences to the arbitrament
of the sword when this war shall have ended
than they have, ever been before. And that will
be humanity's victory and civilisation's reprisal.
. The greatest need of the day Is for effi
ciency. It Is true of Individuals as well as of
society. It Is true In every relation and sphere
of life in religion, no less than politics, busi
ness or the professions. . Men are agreed that
only a very small percentage of the people come
anywhere par attaining the ultimate exponent
of their po frs; that only the scantest few, if.
Indeed, any, hava reached what might be called
their maximum efficiency.
One way to Increase our efficiency lies In
cultivating the power of concentration. Per
haps the motto of the Apostle Paul might be a
good one to follow' In this connection "This
one thing I do." Leaving off attempts at halt
a dozen things and pressing forward toward one
mark, one goal, one thing at a time undoubtedly
would help mightily In the effort at efficiency.
The habit of scattering one's time and at
tention Is very common today. Many folks are
members of numerous lodges, cluba, societies
and what not, and naturally feel like trying to
keep up with all in addition to looking out for
their business and maintaining some semblance
of home and posHibly church relations, and the
result Is too often lessened efficiency on the
whole. Talents are attenuated, abilities thinned
by too much spreading out, thoughts shallowed
by over-diversification and efficiency suffers.
"Divided forces are easily conquered," the old
Romans used to say, and the saying still holds
A Thought for the Day.
By way of Variety The Be Is inaugurating
a new feature which will Invite the mind of the
reader to dwell for a moment each day upon
ome ennobling or suggestive thought specially
selected from the world's literary treasure-box.
This "Thought for the Day" comes with a double
commendation in that It represents the inspira
tion of a great mind expressed in prose or
poetry, and also reflects the sentiment of who
soever has chosen it for its appropriateness. We
do not hesitate to d inclose the fact, either, that
for this collection of quotations we have drawn
in large part upon the material contained In a
striking and unique calendar gotten out a few
years ago by the Omaha Teachers' Annuity and
Aid association through a committee of its mem
bers who put rare Judgment ' and Intelligence
Into its production, and whose work we are only
here and there supplementing.
Thoaa neutral dlplomata who called ta ak about
tha not (on American commerce to England) were
not given a copy of It, but were Informed (by Secre
tary Bryan) that tha first newapaprr report ot It
waa accurate. Weahlni'ton Dlapatch.
The significance of this ought to be appre
ciated by the chronic critics of the press, who
like to complain of its notorious inaccuracy.
Here is an instance ot the gravest importance la
which the newspaper report is so entirely ac
curate as to answer for the State department's
exhibit to tha diplomats ot foreign countries. If
reporters can get such a delicate and Important
matter ot news as this straight, it stands to
reason they could do as well with relatively
"A tribute to the reporters," someone says.
But that is not the point here. The point to b
noted is that those who had this piece of in
formation to give out saw to it that the papers
got it exactly right Of course that is usually
done at th capital, where news ot great Im
portance is handled. But It might also be done
everywhere else. Exactly tha same factors con
tributing to th accuracy ot this report might
be employed by everyone with a bit of informa
tion ot news value. Tha newspaper's accuracy
would be greatly improved it those with news
to give would exercise the good sens ot giving
it so as reasonably' to insure its reaching the
paper at least In its true form. For, while th
public may be slow to appreciate it. th fact la
that much of the garbling appearing In news
columns Is often due more to thoa in command
of the news source than to th reporters. Com
mon sense ought to suggest to anyone that fact
Is more desirable and valuable to any decent
newspaper than fiction, and that th averag re
porter will get th facts it possible, but is often
prevented by the Strang attitude betrayed by so
many toward the paper and its prim function of

Which puts faith above resson, as the heart,

For there Is no power or emotion stronger In
Its possibilities than th power of love. All the

UNDER this heading-, f am coin to contribute
periodically a column of oba'rvetlone and com
ment In the nature of a peraonal talK wltn who
ever may oare to read It. I have elect-d the caption
"Views, Revlewa and Intervtewa" for the partlcula
purpnftA to afford a llmltleaa latitude In toplo selection
so that I may ileal with whatever happens to atrlk
me as either tlnvly or Interesting or both. It goes
without saying; that what Interrau me, may not ap
peal In the tame way to other and ptill I feel 'that
the personal Sldelta-ht may poaalbly add an Illuminating
ray and at any rale ahould not detract anything from
a pen picture.
By "Views" I do not propoee to be confined to mere
expreaelon of opinion but to include remlnlacenoea,
narrative, and Informational matter which some cur
rent event furnishes a hook to hang on. I was born
and ralaed In Omaha and have attained to the rank
of a "pioneer" which maiiee me one of the connecting
links between the Omaha of today and th Omaha
cf th past and giving the historical netting or back
ground or recalling soma half-forgotten occurrence
may serv to explain to the comparative ntweomers
a lot of thing not obvious to them on the surface.
Py "Reviews" I mean to call attention to booka or
magasln articles or other literary products that I
happen upon and find sufrgeattv or worth noting. I
read a great deal perhapa too much In one grojv
and too much of the paaalng rather than permanent
kind but In this reading, I every now and then hit
upon something that seems worth mentioning and
perhaps nommedlng. A review, too, opens up an op
portunity to dissent from or to supplement the au-,
thor's findings with personal or practical application.
I have no Intention of going Into the field of abatruao
or technical criticism I leave that to th bookworme
and th highbrow.
By "Interviews" t am putting a latehatrlng out to

Bonner, known to all old-Urn printers in this section
and around whose coffin a group ot fellow workers
gathered to pay their last respecta. I learned to t.c
type myself during a school vacation in th early
eighties and I remember him being In Irrepreaalbl
evidence then. One of the men told me Bonner had
learned his trade on Th Be in 18T4. Be that aa It
may, he was a good oompoaltor and his own worst
enemy. I bollev he never quit bridged the chaam

Mr. Collar who spoke over the remains aptly said
drawing on the printers' trad dialect, "H has

caught by th proofreader, but th proof has been

ground the senate has for rejecting a

of the majority of Its members that the
nominee Is unfit They have no right
to abandon to any one or two sensors th
right to render the Judgment of th senate

to logrolling in Its most obnoxious form.

be properly classed as political enemies
of the prealdent The president has recog
nised their belligerency to the extent
of faillag to consult them with reference
to presidential appointment within their

sented the president's Independence and
hav appealed to senatorial courtesy to
refuse confirmation to appointments In
which they would naturally be Interested
and In rogard to which they were not
consulted. In two instances the senate

nominations; and In no Instsnc has one
