Is the Terror of the Skies Tamed I
Sunday morning the long promised raid of
thn Zeppelin air fleet on Paris came to pass,
providing a spectacular treat for the populace,
but with little other apparent effect. Bombs
were dropped, doing little damage, and the bis?
cruisers of tbe empyrean withdrew under fi
bombardment of the flashing search-lights,
while the crowds gathered on balconies and In
the streets watched with admiration the flight
of the giants pursued by the blrdmen of France.
It was tres magnlfique, but (he pleasure ot the
performance was marred by a morning mist,
much of the splendor of the spectacle being
obscured by the vapor in the air. This seems
to be a standard feature of the air-fighting, the
disappearance of one or the other of the com
batants In a bank of cloud, just at the most
tense moment of the conflict. However, Paris
was furnished on Sunday with an enlivening
sensation, something the gay capital has been
sorely In need of. and Its volatile residents may
now retire at night with the full assurance that
the foe has not forgotten them. The exhibition
of Sunday at Paris, however, will make the
World wonder If the ogre of the air has not been
overdrawn as to its potentiality for offense In
Omaha Thirty Year After.
An eastern business man, visiting Omaha
after an absence of thirty years, voices with
much of enthusiasm his astonishment at the
evidence of material progress he sees. It la not
only the extent of the improvements and
changes he notes, but the substantial and pros
perous appearance of the rlty also Impresses
him. It is no especial occasion for wonder that
thla man should be surprised at what he finds
here, no matter how' closely be may have kept
track of Omaha by reading, and through his
business connections. Msny Omaha people, who
npend their lives here, do not fully realize all
their home town has to back up and support its
claims to greatness. Omaha's progress during
.the last thirty years Is such aa gives occasion for
reasonable pride to its citizens, who are fully in
formed as to the city's advantages and achieve
ments. Their only dissatisfaction arises from
the fact that the ambitions and aims ot Its peo
ple are not realized as readily and as rapidly us
wished. The comment of tbe visitor, ao sin
cerely delighted with, what he found here, ought
to greatly encourage all Omahans, and espe
cially those who do not think the growth of the
city Is proceeding fast enough.
President Wilson ares no present necessity
for an extra session of congress. Now If the
legislatures will rise and go home to stay the
country will breathe naturally, ahed Us coat aud
get busy with bualness.
Duplex aad Self-Reversible-How
-that much-abused "consent-of-the-gor-erned"
trick Is worked by the democratic pres
tidigitators Is again illustrated by our sleight-of-hand
contemporary, the World-Herald, ehed
ding crocodile tears over the Greater Omaha
consolidation bill as an tnvaalon of the demo
cratic doctrine of home rule. The World-Herald
must think the pec pie hereabouts have short
memories, for It was only during the last pre
ceding session of the legislature that it was
frantically boosting a water district bill that
annexed South Omaha and other auburban ter
ritory, not only without the consent of the In
habitants, but over their almost unanimous pro
tests. It at the same time manifested its sub
lime faith In local self-government by advocat
ing the transfer of all the election machinery ot
this county into the hands ot the governor at
Lincoln, without the aid or consent of the vot
ers, wheress two years before It had raised tbe
home rule slogan to take the administration of
Omaha's fire and police department away from
the governor and restore control over them to
our own people. "
Verily, the democratic "consent-of-the-gov-erned"
Idea la a self-reversible duplex mechan
ism ready to be used at any moment either way.
Should all the plans to multiply state In
spectors go through the legislature, Nebraska
taxpayers will have no occasion to worry about
separating cream from milk. There will be uo
cream, and precious little milk.
Diversification of crops is making headway
la the south. Wheat acreage has gone up to 33
per cent, oats to a similar percentage and corn
fields are expanding steadily. The slump In
cotton will be worth Its cost to the south If It
breaks the one-crop habit.
The Bee Is frank to say that it does not see
any valid objection to the antt-dlscrlmlnatlon
fire Insurance measure which la before the leg
islature, notwithstanding the violent attacks
upon it as subversion of the anti-compact and
What Is proposed, If we are correctly ad
vised, is that the fire companies doing business
In Nebraska be prohibited from varying their
rates on tbe same class of risks so that one city
or town, or one set of property owners, shall be
overtaxed for the benefit of another set favored
for one reason or another with lower rates. In
other words, there would be nothing to prevent
general rate reduction, or authorising compacts
or combinations restraining competition- for
business, but any company cutting under in
Omaha, for example, would have to make cuta
on the same line In Fremont or Beatrice.
If similar legislation to this is working sat
isfactorily in Kansas, Texas and Oklahoma, and
their example has already been followed by

Prayers for Peace-
Millions of American citizens on Sunday re
cited fervently a prayer tor peace, and others
subscribed a petition, asking that the war be
brought to a close. . Sceptics may question the
expediency of this course, but at least the sup
plicants have the right to hope that their pe
titlons are not altogether in vain. The rulers
of the nations and the. leaders of the armies of
the peoples now at war are human, and not to
tally without regard to reason or devoid of the
common impulses ot humanity, and so may be
reached by some means of argument or per
suasion. The faith of the Christian world is
staked on the effort to check the ravages of
war. It is difficult to reconcile the rage ot war
with much that pertains to orthodoxy, but the
sen ice of Sunday shows the sublime faith of the
participants. In that, if in no other way,
Art treasures in Belgium are said to be sale

most attractive loot for invading or couquerlag
armies. Hardly a public art gallery or museum
csn be found in Europe that la not enriched with
thla class of loot. Every country has been more
er less a victim, and the trail ot art looters ia
readily traceable from tl e Napoleonic raids ot
the last century to the Philippine war and the
international lavaaloa, ot Peking.

In Defense af Appraiser Plan.
OMAHA, March 2?.-To the Editor ot
The Bee: 1 notice your editorial of this
date captioned, "Look Before the Leap," j
n which jou make timely comment on
the present condition ot the Saunders
elect rla light bill, as amended and passed
to third reading in the house last Friday.
1 believe, however, that the complica
tions which attended the taking over of
the water plant, cannot be repeated un
der the terms of this amendment, and
right here Is a good time to say that the
only reason this amendment watt not tn
the . original bill waa that the framers
of innate File No. t had in mind the
very thing to which -you have directed
attention; but most of the complications
which occurred In tho water works ap-
raiaement, should be averted under the
terms of the amendment, vix:
First: Appraisers must hand In their
report within sixty days from the date
of the aw-olntment of the second ap
praiser. (It will be recalled that the
water works appraisers were several
years In resrhing a conclusion.)
hocond: The books ot the llgM com
pany must be open to Inspection of the
board of appraisers sn'l the Metropoli
tan Water district, during 'the entire
period of appraisement. iThe Omaha
Water comnanv did not open their books
to the inspection of the appraisers dur
ing the period of appraisement, anu
while such Inspection waa offered at a
later time, their books were never opened
to the inspection of the city or Ita legal
Third: iiy the terms or this amendment
any appraisal handled In must be rati
fied by a vote of the people confirming
bond issue to cover the amount or
nnrslHenient. If this bond issue does
not carry, no purchase tan be mide. and
If the owners of tho light company do
rot ancnt the appraisement wltliin
thirty days, then the obligation to pur
chase on the part of the water district
shall oease and the right on the part
of tha water district to go ahead ana
construct a plant shall be In full force.
This, of course, after a bond Issue has
been submitted to a vote of the people,
and by them affirmed.
The amendment referred to has been
repeatedly demanded by such citizens as
were honestly apprehensive that tne
property of the electric light company
would be partially confiscated by the
construction of a publicly owned and
competitive plant, without affording any
opportunity on the part of the llghtcom
fany to sell their plant, or giving any
authority to the water district to pur
The writer la one of those who have
believed from the flrit that such an
amendment would be entirely fair, recog
nizing the economic waste resulting from
maintenance of two light plants in this
The experience of Omaha in acquiring
the water plant should be valuable aid
In handling this question, but should
not prevent a full exercise of the rights
which certainly belong to the people of

For Polish War Victims.
OMAHA, Neb., March 22.-TO the Editor
of The Bee: The dally reports which
come to us through the public press and
private letters of the desolation and Its
consequent sufferings caused by tho
present . European war In various coun
tries shock the minds and hearts of all.
Irrespective of our sympathies or an
tipathies for the warring aidea, wc feel
pity for those who have been deprived
of homes and bread through this un
fortunate war, and wo are not content
with mere sentimentality in this case,
but hasten to bring relief to the suf
ferers. How much haa not been done
for the war victims In Belgium?
Kind friends, there Is another country
which Is suffering as much, or even more,
than Belgium by this terrible war which
Is raging in Kurcpe. That country Is
Poland. Gallcia in Austria and Ruisslan
Poland have been the scenes of the most
devastating war operations for the last
six month. Tremendous armies have
crossed this territory, leaving In their
trail ruin and devastation. The Buffer
ing entailed upon the Inhabitants of these
territories by the prolonged contentions
of the warring nations are simply beyond
all deairlptlons. Actually, millions of
Innocent people, women anil children, arc
Starving to desth. The condition of
these people is so pitiful that a world
wide movement has been atarted to help
them and to. save them from certain
death by starvation. It is for this reason
that the Polish Citizen's club of Omaha

publlo of our city to obtain help for those
unfortunate vlctlma of war In Poland
With the permission of the honorable
mayor, Mr. Jamea Dahlman. a number
of young ladies will solicit otferinus from

ahowa the faith of a true democrat.
Mr. Bryan, aa, I. believe, and aa a

greatest man that Mr. Wilson could have
