Other states with no more Judges on their
bench, and many of them with fewer, keep
abrea.st with their litigation without the troubles
which we complain of In Nebraska. They do it,
first, by discouraging, or limiting, frivolous ap
peals, and particularly appeals where the only
object sought Is to gain delay, and they speed
up the wheels of the Judicial machinery by re
stricting the hearings and arguments to the
points really at Issue, and likewise holding the
opinions of the court within reasonable compass
by excluding all the side lines. They do it,
further, by closing a case for good with a de
cision without successive rehearlngs, unless
some vital factor has been overlooked or Is
newly discovered. They do It chiefly, however,
by a spirit of co-operation between bench and
bar that keeps the main object In view, and
eliminates time-consuming technicalities.

expediting Justice ran certainty be done to a
measurable degree In Nebraska If those most
directly concerned will put their minds to the
problem and work it out.
A Ttar of "Expositfom.
With the San Diego Panama-Pacific exposi
tion touched off by the president to run its full
year courae and San Francisco's big show soon
coming on, California embarks upon one of the
biggest enterprises to which it has ever set Its
great powers. Whether that state of indomitable
grit would have essayed such a task If it could
have foreseen the turn of world events Is not
the question now. The task has been essayed
and California may be depended upon to com
plete It successfully If such a thing can be done.
Moreover. California will have thw hearty good
will of the entire country back of K. and no
doubt a lot of even more practical support and
With European travel badly discounted by
the war, many thousands of those Americans
who Just must go somewhere every year will in
all probability go to California. It is doubtless
true, as has often been said, that many of our
best travelers from the eastern states have sadly
neglected tholr opportunities for travel and
study in the west. Now here Is the golden op
portunity to make good tbelr shortcomings, to
put into practice the "See America First"
slogan. And it will more than pay them to do
so. The Journey across the continent will afford
them both profit and pleasure la becoming ac
quainted with other dominions ot wealth and
wonders, besides California. Of course, thous
ands of these tourists will be drawn over the
water route by the added attraction of the Pan
ama canal, whose opening these expositions are
to celebrate, but many may make the trip one
way by land. Indeed, the combination land and
water Journey would afford one of the rarest
privileges of travel.
Back of the pleasure side of the expositions
to California, of course, la the stern factor of
business; of exploiting and colonizing soma of
lta wide stretches of land, such, for example,
as the Imperial Valley to the south Here, again, 1
the tnterlylng states may come la for their share

Nebraska have the most attractive offers to
make to anyone seeking either Investment or a
home on the Isnd. This reminds us of the im
portance of a systematic effort to attract as
many ot these passing strangers as possible.
They might, despite our irresistible charms, not
see fit to tarry with us long enough to appre
ciate them unless bidden to do so.
Twe Kinds of Preaching:. ,
The apparent remarkable success of Rev.
William A. Sunday's method of preaching is
coming to Invite comparison with the more de
corous and dignified manner of preaching from
the average church pulpit throughout the land.
Sunday - biggest buildings are overflowed,
whether In Dea Moines or Pittsburgh, while
many pastors yearn for occupants of empty
pews, although church attendance on the whole
Is said to be somewhat improving of late.
Those who have studied the style and
method of the great evangelist. Whltefleld.
whose torrential eloquence burned into the aoula
of men two centuries ago, find analogy In the
Sunday sermons. Both men are described as
ovine evaagetist crusaders, preaching the old
time religion in the straight-from-the-shoulder
fashion, sparing neither friend nor foe in laying
bare the sins ot the people. In flaying the indif
ferent and exposing the hypocritical.
"In his terrific sermons," aaya a pertrayer
or the great Whlterield, "be lashed the faults
ot hla auditors unsparingly, and told them
Plainly that if they did not change their ways
they were destined to everlasting fire. The kind
of preaching that drew vast congregatioaa then,
drawa thee now.''
Certaialy Mr. Sunday seems to have aa much
fire and force lu hla preaching aa any man
could have, and the people fairly fall over them
selves In not only going to hear him, but going
to the mourners' bench after they hear him.
Aa the Dea Moines Capital, which has had re
cent occasion far studying Sunday end hla ways,
puts it: "His hearers seem positively to relish
being told they are 'half beasts aad half devila.' "
The quebtlon seems to arise, Is it time for the
average pastor to take his toot off the soft
pedsl and let out the steam as Sunday does and
as Whltefleld did and as most ot the old-time
preachers used to do. Has the sugar-coated
method of preaching, or even the more dignified
rationalism In the pulpit failed ot proper re
sults. Not long ago a stout-hearted layman here
in our own city, who, feeling that his pastor
waa losing ground because ot hla too gentle
prer.eb.lnf. went to hint and said:
'Doctor, do you not see some faults la some
of your people?" snd the good pastor admitted
that he did.
"Then, why," atked the la man, "do you
tot go after them? Strike out and hit one of
them; hit me If you will, hit anybody. Put a
punch In your preaching."
It would bs interesting to know how general
that feeling exiaU among laymen and how far
responsible It Is for the empty pew problem.
No pastor or layman, of course, will admit that
Rev. Mr. Sunday's vigorous style of preaching
constitutes his real power. They would, doubt
less, point you to this secret, which the evan
gelist, himself, puts in his own words:
I would no more think of attempting a campaign
In any city without the co-operation of God's people
In the neighborhood prayer meetings than I wouli
try to play a game of base ball without a ball
That is, "Billy" 8unday names prsyer as
the sine qua non of his power.
Teachers' Retirement Pensions.
Signs are already visible of opposition to
that part of the school law code recommended
by the Revision commission, which proposes re
tirement pensions for teachers throughout Ne
braska on a plan somewhat similar to that which
already obtains here in Omaha. This proposal
Is denounced as infringing on the principle of
equality and establishing a privileged class.
The question Is thus raised as to whether a
school teacher la entitled to preferential treat
ment as compared with other public employes
or as compared with those In private employ
ment. Here In Omaha we have taken the
teacher's retirement pension as a matter of
course, having also retirement pensions for
members ot the police and fire departments.
The pension system has not yet been extended
beyond departmenta where the beneficiaries
hold by good-behavior tenure, this being the
only practical way so tar devUed to transfer the
superannuated, and keep the arterlea of circula
The alternatives would seem to be either to
have fixed terms of employment and rotation
for all public servants or to set a deadline at a
designated age,' neither of which conform to
modern ideaa of progress. The college profes
sors have bad retirement pensions, subject to
established rules, provided for them by private
endowment, and In one or two states by state
appropriation, and to pension public school
teachers, to our mind, no more creates a privil
eged class than to pension university Instructors.
According to the State Bosrd ot Health, the
total number of births in Nebraska in 1814 was
26,704; deaths, 10,785, leaving a net gain to
population of 16,969, reminding us again of the
bmall proportion of population increase from
this source But If the birth rate la dlscourag
lngly small, the death rate Is encouragingly so;
It is even smaller than for the year previous,
when the total number of deaths was 11,264.
For a state of 1,800.000 population. 10,000
deaths in a year stands itself a splendid adver
tisement of the wholesome living conditions.
Cupid was on the Job rather industriously dur
ing the year, consummating 12,167 triumphs at
the altar of Hymen, albeit the little cherub wit
nessed all too many defeats In the divorce courts.
In tha year 2.159 attempts at separation were
made, most of them successfully. Most of those
seeking divorce had been married less than five
years, which will furnish new ground for the
contention that domestic Infelicity Is more com
mon than In former yearn, althourfn the logic
may be quite faulty. 1
Late statistics showing the ratio of births as
between so-called native Americans tn Nebraska
and foreign-born families would doubtless, If
available, reflect some Interesting facts, the
large birth ; rate being ; la the foreign-born
families. Failure to advance far along this line
of Increase does not necessarily mean, of course,
that Nebraska's population is not keeping up; it
Is making normal gains from Immigration, which
may promise still larger contributions la the
next few years.
The Shortage of Housemaids.
Chicago oomplalna of a shortage In house
maids, despite the general cry over the country
for employment. Good wages, It Is said, tail to
supply the demsnd for competent help.
"Wages now offered for experienced house
maids are at least normal," says a woman en
gaged in trylig to f'll these wants., . "In fact,
In many of the suburbs they have reached the
An oversupply ot Jobless women ready to
accept housework is admitted, but they are
without experience, not capable ot earning the
top wages and unwilling to accept less. How
typical the Chicago situation may be cannot be
said, but tha chances are It is a good deal Ilka
that In most other cities. The truth Is that,
even though housework is the woman's most
natural occupation, and a competent housemaid
Is often la the long run better paid than her sis
ter who prefers the shop and factory, the great
majority continue to choose the latter. Yet
this coadltlon may not be due entirely to the
housemaid. The housewife. If she has not
quite learned how to treat her "help." may have
as much, or more, to do with it than she is eager
to concede. Ordinarily, the comforts of tht
hemes employing males, In addlttoa to the
wages, offer relative advantages aad la du ce
ment which the factory or mill do not have to
offer, and when theae fall to attract, anrely the
fault must be elsewhere, or at least divided be
tween the two sides.

And when some gray-haired brother alngs
the onea I used to know,
I sorter want to take a hand, I think of
days gone by,
"On Jordan'a stormy banks I stand anJ
cast a wistful eye!"
There's lots of music In 'em those dear,
sweet hymns of old.
With visions bright of lands of light and
shining streets of gold;
And I hear 'em ringing singing, where
mem'ry, dreaming, atanda,
"From Greenland icy mountain to In
dia's coral slrancU."
They seem to sing forever of holier,
When the lilies of the love of God
bloomed white In all the ways;
And I want to hear their music from the
old-time meetln's rise
Till "I can read my title clear to man
sions in the skies."
Wa never needed singin' books In them
old days we knew
Th words, the tun of every one the
dear old hymn book through!
We didn't have no trumpets then, no or
gans built for show.
We only sang to praise the Lord, "from
whom all blessings flow."
An" so I love the good old hymns, snd

Before my light haa left me and mi

If I can hear 'em aing them then. I I:
