The Hotel rontenclle.
Omaha will formally note the opening of the
aplendld new Hotel Fontenelle this evening, and
with that ceremonial will mark the beginning
of a new era In the city's life.
From the very beginning of things to the
preaent, a patriotism unquenchable has marked
the renldents of Omaha, to the end that every
trlslg has been met and every swell in the tide
has been turned to advantage. It was this uplrlt
that brought the I'nion Pacific terminals to
Omaha in the far past; it was this epirlt that led
to the fuller growth and development of the city
In the '80s; it was this rplrlt that, when the out
look was the darkest, financed and directed to
Its magnificent success the great Transmissls
ippl Exposition; it waa this spirit that built the
great live stock and packing Industry here, and
that Is making Omaha one of the great grain
marketa of the world; It waa this spirit that has
made the Omaha banks and wholesale houses,
factories and retail eMablishmentB, solid and re
liable institutions, and has given Omaha a stand
ing In which its citizens have justifiable pride.
When the tornado tore its way through a
beautiful residence district two years ago, wip
ing out many lives and scattering in bits hun
dreds of splendid homes, the spirit of Omaha
rose, and with the indomitable courage of Its
united citizenship, the city faced the crista and
came out of the wreckage fresh and fair, and
full of a new determination. And in that time
the Hotel Fontenelle was born. Omaha men of
means and public spirit have built this hotel as
an evidence of the Omaha spirit. It standa high
cn the bill top, where it typifies the soul of
Omaha, courageously determined on further
To Mr. Burbank, the manager, and his as
sociate. The Bee again says, "You are welcome;
you will like Omaha, and as you share in the
prosperity of the city, you will be glad your lot
has been cast among us."
Taylor and the University.
The gentleman from Custer wants to do
something to the University of Nebraska that
will bring about the segregation of the College
of Agriculture from the other colleges ot the
Institution. His public expressions, in commit
tee and on the floor ot the house, have not been
very coherent, nor do they definitely state any
purpose, but he has aald enough to warrant the
conclusion that his desire la to divorce the study
of farming from the study of languages, litera
ture, mathematics and other forma of polite or
scientific learning.
If this be his purpose, Mr. Taylor Is working
along the wrong track. One ot the great ad
vantages of having the College of Agriculture
connected with the other schools of the Univer
sity of Nebraska Is that it permits the agricul
tural student to gain a wider knowledge and
broader grasp of other sciences than those which
pertain strictly and exclusively to farming. It
must be kept in mind, too, that farming today
consists of something more than the mere turn
ing over of the soil, planting of the seeds, culti
vation of the growing stalks and harvesting of
the crops. The properly equipped farmer is a
scientifically trained roan, versed in the science
of botany and its various branches, with a
knowledge of chemistry and a working grasp of
the fundamentals at; least 6f animal physiology
and anatomy; " Some of these! branches are-
taught at the agricultural school, but others
must be taken In connection with the general
university course. If the divorce that Mr. Tay
lor pleads for is granted it would necessitate
duplication of equipment, instructors and plant
to properly provide for the needs of the agricul
tural school. Other objections are obvious.
It is plain that the College of Agriculture
will suffer If it be segregated from the Univer
sity of Nebraska. The strongest argument pre
sented in favor of the consolidation of the great
university on a aingle campus, and one which
applies with aa much force today as ever, waa
that through, that consolidation the students of
agriculture would gain great advantage by rea
son of accessibility ot the other schools In which
they must take part ot their work. It would
be a grievous mistake to deprive these students
of their opportunity to acquire elementa of
broader culture which should properly accom
pany scientific instruction in farm methods.
Mr. Taylor'a xeal is misdirected.
The university administration has little
cause for apprehension so far aa an honest in
quiry Into Its details of management Is con
cerned, but It has cause to apprehend the effect
of making the university the subject of partisan
debate or division. Keep the university safely
out ot politics, and It wiil prosper in spite of
material obstacles. -

The Railroad Campaign for Higher Bates.
The Nebraska Railway commission calls at
tention to the condition that baa developed In
connection with the railroad campaign for in
creased passenger and freight tariffs. It is that
commercial clubs and similar organizations are
being persuaded by the' railroads to paaa reso
lutions' making requests ot the railway com
missioners that the asked for Increases be
granted. The danger in this lies tn the ex parte
presentation of the plea. The Nebraska com
missioners direct attention to the fact that the
commissions of fifteen states are now acting
together to give calm and careful consideration
to the railroad' petitions, and will be thereby
better enabled to determine if the advance in
rates Is justified For thla reason It Is sug
gested that organized bodies of railroad patrons
exercUe a little prudence in connection with the
manifest effort of the railroads to enlist public
sympathy for their cause.
Eastern newspapers are wasting valuable
space In publishing the text of the "declaration
ot London" governing naval warfare, and ap
proved by warring and neutral powers. It ia
one ot "scraps of paper" shot to ptecea by the
war, and Is beyond hope of resurrection by news
paper pulmotors.
Nieit, Serbia, normally a town of some iJi.ono. ha
been transformed by tha war Into a city of
more than soula. The atrangcr within tha
city galea wondr-re where all tha people een on tlx
street sleep at night. Tha email public park, as well
as tha two principal chopping atreeta. are aa crowded
during the daylight hpurs aa Broadway and Fifth
avenue on a late afternoon. The problem of carina
for the thousand who fled here from Belgrade and
the northern eommunltlea of the country when war
wa declared has been a difficult one.
Kvery house with vacant room a waa comman
deered by the government, but even thla action failed
to provide shelter for hundreds of fugitive from th
battle dlatticta. In the dilemma In which the Serbian
people found themaelvrs the American Ked Croea mis
sion came aa a veritable Oodaend. Everywhere tha
Asaoriatad Preia correspondent has traveled he has
noountered evidence of good work done by American
citizens and has everywhere found gra-tful apprecia
tion on the part of the Serbian people. Thla apprecia
tion waa officially expressed by M. Mlloah Petronle
vltch, one of the administrators of the diplomatics
pre bureau, who speaks Englleh perfectly.
"Our conetltutlon," said M. Petronlevttchk "and all
of our institution are really modeled from those of
tha Vnlted States of America, and some day wa hope
to be really an American state here at the end of
Europe and the beginning; of Asia. That, as well aa
the sympathy and aid for our wounded aent ua by
the American Red Croas during all three of our re
cent ware, account for the very warm welcome we
hall always give to any American who cares to coma
out and study us at closer range.
"We are riot ao hoepltable to all foreigner. Serbia
la more accustomed to having enemlea than friend.
From tha time tha Herblan empire came under tha
Turks In tha fourteenth century, until it liberation in
the early part 'of the nineteenth century, Serbia waa
cut off as a state from all the rest of the world. Her
Turkish tyrant had hut one idea, to destroy the soul
of the race, the memory of it glorlou and marital
past, of Ua aristocratic tradltlona and of its racial
unity with the other Slav peoples. It chivalry per
ished in the great battle of Koasova in V9. Koeaov
la a vast plain about 100 mllea eouthweat of Nlsh,
where the battle of Turkish conquest between the
foroe of Sultan Murad I and the Rerbian emperor
Tracer waa fought In the fourteenth century. This
great battle ended with the. complete overthrow of
tha Serbian empire and the 600-year domination of
the whole ot southwest Europe by the Turks. This
domination Included ell the people now comprising
tha Balkan statea. All ef the sons of the noble Serbian
families were carried off tn Constantinople to form
the famous guard of the Janissaries. They were reared
In complete ignorance of their parentage, and with
but one Ideal, the sultan. A certain number of the
great Serbian families escaped Into Russia, Austria
and Montenegro. From thee and subsequent emigra
tion a have aprung the members of the race who are
today outalde the kingdom of Serbia, Boanla. Herxe
govlna and DaJmetls, are Integrally a part of the
kingdom, though detached from It by European poli
tics at the congr' of Berlin."
Mr. Petronlevltch pointed to a large map which
bung in hi office, ahowing tha ancient confine ot
the Serbian empire, aa well aa the marginal Una ot
the frontiers of that Oreater .Serbia, the creation ot
which Is tn some quarter regarded aa the cause of
the war. Be this aa It may, it will certainly be one
of tha moat Important changes In the map of Europe
If Serbia and Its powerful allies are successful against
the German and tha Aflstrlans.
"You can see," continued Mr. Petronlevltch, "how
difficult haa been the position of Serbia, with the
Turks, on. the one hand, longing to conquer what
they had lost; the Auatrlana, on the other hand,
urged by the German, whose own expansion could
only take place by pushing the Auatrlana Into posses
sion of all the Slav kingdoms of the Balkans, thua
leaving free the German province of Austria for
Germany! There la no doubt In our mind that Ger
many has had the Idea of absorbing the dual mon
archy of Austria-Hungary, thus dreaming of a king
dom extending .from the shores of the- North sea to
tha Atan, at Salonika, the aloephorus and the Sea f
Mamoia at Constantinople, and reaching eut to a
supreme control of the Mediterranean and even tha
Black sea. No one who haa not lived am the shore
of the Danube has any real conception of -the fanatic
ism with which Austria haa worked to achieve thla
end, nor of the designing care with which Germany
has ever promoted it design. A part of the plan
alwaye haa been to keep the state of the Balkans
from any federation or cohesion among themselves.
This might have been more difficult had not several
of the states had German princes for rulers. Serbia
and Montenegro, you know, wlthi the exception of
Italy, are the ouly state of Europe that have rulers
of their own blood and faith.
"Bulgaria, rtoaely allied to Serbia In feudal times
and whoee liberation from Turkey, -waa effected by
Russia, haa ever been tha working ground of that
Austro-German diplomacy which has been so active
at Constantinople. Tba Bulgarian war pf'last year,
aa welt aa Turkey's participation In the present war,
was the outcome of this diplomacy and Intrigue.
Servla haa been wiser than Bulgaria or Turkey. We
have not been any too fond of atrangers. Too many
of those who have come In the gulae of fnlend have
turned out .to be Austrian aplea. There never wa i
country so beset by aplea and mischief makers of all
kinds as Serbia has been during the laat fifteen years,
or ilnce the German emperor made up hla mind that
a European war would be the only means of acquiring
new territory for Germany.
"Serbia la trying to demonstrate to the whole
world that its civilisation Is on as high a plane n
that of ' England and America, even tnough It re
sources and facilities are not greater than those of
eome of the American statea 100 year ago. It wa the
history of the American Revolutionary war, read by
Kara George, grandfather of our present king, which
Inspired him with a deal re to lead hla people in the
uprising against the Turks tn 1S04 "

KOl'TH OMAHA, Feb. 21 -To the Edi
tor of The Bee. Should like to answer
1. W. W. on annexation In thla morning's

to fear by hla algnature. Hays we have

t till Water Power.
NORTH LOUP. Neb., Feb. 18. To the
Editor of The Bee: Suppose the present
legislature adjourns, not having passed
a few measures demanded by the people.
Their prospects -as future officeholders
will be materially lessened. The power
ful lobble want adjournment In hope ot
defeating those measures. Various men
of the office-holding clase have been
urging that water power legislation I
uncertain, speculative and theoretical.
This writer Is not the first to advance
the Issue. Thomas A. Edison say:
"In perhaps fifteen or twenty years
depending on the financial condition of
the country the locomotive will pass
altogether out of use, and all our main
trunk railways will be operated by elec
tricity. "A new fertilizer will spring Into ex
istence, containing a large percentage ot
nitrogen. This will be drawn from the
air by electricity and will be used to In
crease the arablllty of the land. Even
now this la done to a large extent In.
Sweden (by government ownership).
"All our water power will be utilised
by electricity to an extent now almost
unthought of and will be used with great
advantage, both industrially and for
Twenty"-flve quotations from statesmen
and scientists of the standing of Edison
may be produced in strong support of
water power. The object Is to keep down
legislation In order to monopolise the
country's resources. We have the rivers
with the power, there Is no question, but
can we turn the power to electricity by
proper methods of engineering? The
proper way to find what may be done
la to spproprlate tlOO.000 and appoint a
competent man to do the necessary work
by which to find the engineering faets.
If the matter is placed with tha Board
of Irrigation, see that the state engineer
Is In sympathy with the public demands.
To do anything less will mean failure.
General Grant dlacharged some good
lieutenant, not for what they did. but
for what they failed to do. This legisla
ture ahould not adjourn unUI these mat
ters are fully adjusted. Opposition comes
from the lobbies.
Railroad and the People.
SILVER CREEK, Neb., Feb. 22. To
the Editor of The Bee: I -wish nubiici
to expreis my unqualified approval of
your editorial In The Bee of this datte
on "The Railroads and the Public." and
In so doing 1 am sure that I am quite in
accord with publio sentiment generally
at leaat in the state of Nebraska.
You say: "If the railroads had always
pursued the policy which Is now being
adopted and had treated the public with
the frankness that has finally been forced
upon them, there la no doubt they would
have been met with equal frankness and
fair treatment."
That is true. The people would alwaye
have been fair to the railroad, if the
railroads had been fair to the people;
but, as you say, they took an opposite
course. Their purpose was "to exact all
the traffic would bear." t e., to skin the
people toxfue limit, and for more than a
veneration they bevy been doing It to
the queen's taste. About a year before
our legislature reduced passenger fares
to two cents per mile, as I now remember.
1 wrote Gen. Charles F. Manderson, then
general solicitor ot the B. V M. railroad
company, proposing to hlro that ha ahould
oae Jil Influence to have the railroad
agree together on an anti-pass bill to
present to the next legislature, and of
their own accord to reduce fares to two
and one-half cents per mile, assuring
him that if the rallroada would do ao,
and trust the people to do the right
thing by them, they would have no
further cause of complaint; but. that If
they would not they might expect farea
to be reduced to two centa per mil. Gen
eral Manduraon wrote me back a nice
letter, which I have today, but there was
"nothing doing," and the war went on.
And now whan .they find themselves de
feated and crushed throughout the whole
United Statea they eome to us (the
"people") with soft, pleading words and
winning smile, streaked with croco
dile tear, and ask us to now give them
ef our substance since they are no longer
able to rob ua of It. Welt maybe the
people will consent to do It. but. In my
opinion, the railroads will not find them
o comolacent aa a'dosen railroad pres
ident lately found the president of the
United States, who. notwithstanding his
pre-election utterances against trust,
and all that, had not been long In office
before he went over to Wall Street and
tha corporation "body and breeche."
I apoko of "crocodile tear." Take no
tice then that at thla very minute, while
the rallroada are apending aoine hundreda
of thouaanda of dollara. they have
wrongfully taken from the pocketa or
the farmers, la paying for newapaper
article to make the farmers aee that
they ought to conaent to atill further
robbery, the Union Pacific railroad com
pany la reaorUng to every means
In Ita power to take from farmers
In Nebraska. Kaheaa, Colorado and
Wyoming rauliona of acrea of land
worth perhapa on an average, $100 per
acre, that they have been farming for
more than a generation, and which tha
company claim aa a part of Ita right-of-way,
but w hich It haa not uaed and from
the nature of the caae, never could ae.
la the legitimate operation of ita road!
If tha people of Nebraska were per!
milted to vol on the question, outside
of those under the Immediate control of
the rallroada, not ona in one hundred
would vote to give the rallroada an In-"
crease In rate.
Tha people can eaaily aee through I hi

fair dealing, which would Inatantiv n.i
