Record of Reckless Extravagance.
A more complete Indictment of the demo
cratic administration la not extant than thnt
found In the statement Just Issued by Chairman
Flttgerald of the ways and means committee of
the house. It ahowe that the sixty-tnira con
gress. Just adjourned, has made the biggest
total of appropriations on record, exceeding by
more than one hundred millions the record of
the Sixty-second congresa, and by nearly two
hundred millions the total appropriated by the
Sixty-first, the last congress controlled by th
republicans. For Its twoyears of existence, tho
Slxty-thlrd congress spent of public money the
stupendous total of J. 231.000,000, and thU
huge sum of expense was piled up by an admin
istration that made the crux of its campaign for
popular support the denunciation of republican
Promisee of economy made In that campaign
were flung aside with other campaign pledget,
and appropriations were made with utter disre
gard for the income of the treasury or business
conditions of the country. New forms of taxa
tion were devised, and a war tax levied, but Mr.
Fitzgerald estimates that If no change for the
better Is made, the deficit on June 30 will be
$133,000,000. The recklessness of this course
Is sufficient to condemn the party responsible
for It. Mr. Fltigerald's .complaint mat tne
method of making appropriations Is unscientific
will not exculpate the majority party from Us
Mr. Gillette, ranking republican member of
the committee on ways and means, places some
of the blame where It properly belongs, when he
The esecutlve liaa been more reckl and Im
provident than congress and with lee eacuse. Tho
prevalent opinion that congresa la mainly to blame la
Incorrect slrs the executive which la primarily at
fault. It ought to be vaatly easier for the president
and cabinet, a email executive body exempt from the
danger of log rolling, to aurvey the field, calculate
the revetiuee and cut the estimates to correspond.
The change In methoda of handling the busi
ness of .making, the appropriations, demanded
by both Messrs. FiUgerald and Gillette, will
come, but not until the country Is freed from
the menace of democratic mismanagement, and
the republican party ia again in control.

Lincoln Beachey: Dare-Deril.
A lightly-built flying machine failed under
the stress of a desperate feat attempted by Lin
coln Beachey, ' most adventurous of all airmen,
and brought a spectacular end to a career that
was full of thrills. Dally Beachey pushed his
daring beyond the limit of reason to supply a
sensation for the multitude. He did it with a
full knowledge of the risks involved, risks
those of mankind who are bound to solid earth
know nothing of, and found bis reward in tho
plaudits of the populace and the cash paid htm
for assuming the Jeopardy of his calling. Hla
fearlessness has been much descanted upon. Its
service being, as far as known, that he might be
cited as an example to others who are trained
in the hasardous vocation of the aviator. The
use he made ot hla skill waa to cater to man's
insatiate craving for some new thrill, and in
this hq waa supported by an equally unsatisfied
ambition to accomplish what no other had done.
Many foolhardy flyers are Imitating Beachay,
turning flip-flaps high above the earth, with
death continually smiling at theou but It may
be seriously questioned lf toe :Once ot avia
tion Is benefited even In the remotest by their
exhibitions. ' .

Lyons Mirror: Do you remember a tew years ago
when some eighty, so-called business men of Omah.1,
but we believe "deceiving hypocrites" would have
been a more appropriate name, algned a circular letter
stating that If the democratic party should come into
power a financial depression would set in and business
would be ruined. "Well, after two years of democ ratio

Hastings Republican: Htate-wlde Interest was
taken In the Matters' trial at Omaha, particularly on
, the part of the legal profeasien.' The veTdlrt of the
Jury In declaring Mr. Matters guilty on nineteen counts
of aiding and abetting President Leubben of the Sutton
bank to defraud bank patrons came aa no surprise"
to those who had followed the testimony aa gtvtn
during the trial. If Matters had not been mixed up In
so many other deals in which be waa accused of wrong
doing this one case would poaelbly not have gone so
hard against him In the eye of the public. The re
sulta of the case and the- finding of the Jury Is not
without Its lessons. It simply the more proves that
those who handle other people's moneys cannot af
ford to be careless or negligent of other people'a in
terests and that the more promptly and honestly they
serve their friends and the public the better their
standing and reputation.

turned from a California sojourn, somewhat Impressed
with .the glamour of two expositions, declares never
theless that "right here In Omaha and surrounding
country la the safest place for investments and the
easiest place to make a living on the soil." Thia la
exactly what the Hub haa been talking for yeara

KOITH OMAHA. March 15-To the
Editor of The Be: The case of the fine
and manly high school boy Louis Foley
shows what happena when the athletic
business is carried too far in the schools.
He Is probably crippled for life, when if
he had engaged In the old fnahloned
walking and running matches he might
be whole today.
When I wss a boy people alt said I
would die from consumption before I was
11 years old and they came near seeing
the prediction come true, for I began to
spit t lood and I was scared myself. But
I began to walk and run and became so
expert finally thst I beat ail or toe
boys of my home town and also quit spit
ting blood. Many a time I walked a mile
In ten minutes on the level roads of
Illinois and at times when I made ape-
lal efforts I walked a mile In eight and
Kven now I walk not less than six
miles nearly every day of the year to and
froYn my office and have not mlaaed a
meal for want of an appetite for grub
for many years past. It I ao long since
I was too sick to eat that the time haa
paused from my memory.
It Is time the foot ball and other rough
Plays where aome one Is always getting
hurt were cut out and the boys and
girls started in walking and running
matches where they do not get hurt by
coming roughly In contact with one an
other as they do In foot ball and baaket
Sometimes old Ways are the best even
If they are not so spectacular. The case
of Louis Foley is not the only one. for
there are many of them every year, and
It ia time a change of program was had.
Athletes do not stand hardships any bet
ter than those who do not engage In
rough sports, and a great many times
their Uvea are cut short by vicious ath
letics. F. A. AUNKW.

The right to live beneath tho sun.
The right to hold what has been won

Before such prowess rage must sink.
