Everyone In Omaha is for 'The City Beau

Let Us Remember.
I)ppite world-war dlsturbsnres and Indus
trial malingering, evoryone competent to psts
an opinion agrees that Omaha, In the hetrt of
the most productive corn and wheat belt on te
globe. Is In as Rood, or better, position to catch
the uptrend as any other city anywhere. Let
t:s remember, however, that no city can forge
ahead without united effort intelligently guided.
Omaha has been, and Is, divided by sharp differ
ences of opinion on a number of public and
feml-publlc matters of local Importance, and the.
danger Is that these divisions may become so set
and so antagonistic that the various elements of
the community that phould be pulling together
will be pulling apart for no other reason trm;i
The Bee wants to suggest again that every
one who Is living permanently In Omaha, or in
Greater Omaha, has his future Inseparably
bound un with this city; that the progress ani
prosperity of one cannot be detac hed and sepa
rately enjoyed: that ir people are going to live
together they must work together to produce
desired results whose benefits nil share. If
Omaha is to hold Its own and continue to grow,
we must continue to Induce 'more people from
abroad to locate here, -and to attract foreign
capitalists to Invest more money here. Let us
remember, too, that the only sound foundation
on which bigger things ran be built is the foun
dation of reciprocal confidence and business
These remarks may sound like truisms or
'latitudes but they have a particular applica
tion to conditions In Omaha right now.
The Fall of Przemysl.
For the allies, the capitulation of 1'rz.euiyl
is for many reasons the most important of tho
later events In the European war. It comes nt
a time when it cannot fail to have a stiffening
efrect on the morals of their armies In the field
and their peoples at home. In this way Its
moral value Is likely to Te to them equal to Hi
stragetlc value. Trzemysl was one o( three great
fortified towns In Galllcia, on which Austria de
pended to defend the empire from attack u;'
Russia. Temberg fell into Russian hands some
months ago; Przemysl is now given up by the
Austrians, and only . Cracow remains to guaid
, .In their usual frankness, the Germans them
selves will probably not depreciate the loss of
this stronghold or the need growing out of It
to increase their efforts to offset. But while
they will doubtless admit that by opening a way
lor Russia Into southern Prussia, the taking of
Trzemysl has made the task of Von HIndenburg
more difficult, they will count Just as confi
dently upon him proving able to meet tbelr ex
pectations. Call to the "McKinley Men."
' The call to the "McKinley men" sounded by
ex-Senator Root to again rally and relieve the
country from the incubus of democratic incom
petency is not Just sheer sentimentality. It
rests on history on the fact that republican
policies, as exemplified, not only under McKin
ley, bat under other republican presidents from
Lincoln down, have meant progress. The great
est and most substantial growth and develop
nient of the country has been brought about
under the applications of these policies.
' Three times In the last half century have the
people, In the midst of prosperity, listened to
the promise of the democrats, and three times
has the country fallen upon adversity coinci
dent with the change. Democratic theories of
government have operated every time to dis
place confidence with distrust, to put the brakes
on business and to disarrange where they did
not actually destroy American industry.
"McKinley men" are the true progressive);
because they make experience their guide, and,
while not afraid to take new steps, are caeful
to choose the way. They are the men who ral
lied behind Lincoln in 1860, who united to save
the country again in 1896 from silver inflation
and who will again revive that system of gov.
ernment which begets prosperity and permits
all to share in it.
Sounding Abysmal Depths of Infamy.
Dally disclosures of the trial at Indianapolis
of Terra Haute democratic politicians show a
most astounding state of corruption. Nothing
over brought to light in this country haa ap
proached it, nor does fiction provide a parallel
for the Infamy exposed by the witnesses, as they
recount tho proceedings had tn the name of the
law at the Terre Haute election. These tales of
registering dogs as voters, or repeaters who blis
tered their fingers pulling the democratic lever
and of similar feats of criminality, would be
aiuuatng, were they not tm serious.
And now the progress of the recital Is vaaed
by melodramatic effort to thwart the course of
Justice by methods as flagrant aa the abuse cf
the privileges of lectors at the poll. This
amazing effrontery on part of the criminals hss
aroused the indignation of the Judge who Is
presiding at the trial, and be promises that the
ciffendrrs will be brought to a reallxation of

WITH reference to the late William Wallace, T
believe I am entirely within the bounds In
yln; that next to hi Ufcwork as a hanker,
whii h had first claim upon his energle, he devoted
more time nnd thought to our public llbrnry than to
anything e!o outside of the family circle. He took
a pride In hi sen Ire on the library board which only
those associated with him understood. Ills most lust
hi! Uhor for the library ws In connection with the
instruction of the beautiful building which was to
be It first own home. In which It was already
houeed when I was appointed to the board. Nfr. Wal
lace waa already one of tho old memlers a charter
member, I believe and as vice president was second
In rank to President 1-wls f. Reed. We served to
gether for six or sevn years, when he retired, after
which I remained a few year loncer, but he kept
up his personal Interest in the Institution right along.
When I went on the library hoard In the
other eight colleagues were: Lewis B. Retd. William
Wallace, Frank I- Ilnller, P. I Pcrlne. F.lljah Dunn,
T. K. Kiidborough, Mis Klliabeth E. Poppletnn (no
Mrs. Rhannon), and Mr. Claire Rustln Molntoeh. It
was fated for Mr. Perine to be first to answer the
call, and I attended the funeral of F.lljah Dunn only
a few week ago. In those daya Mr. Wallace was,
according to my recollection, the most regular at
tendant at the meetings, and always very positive In
whatever position he took on matter that tame be
fore u. When literary odds and ends were offered
"donations" by folk whf wanted to unload old
Junk, he never hesitated to record a polite refusal.
At the outset, Miss Jexsle Allan wa the librarian In
charge, and after a ort of interregnum following her
death, the place waa filled by the late Benjamin II.
Rorrow. who subsequently made way for Mies Edith
Tohitt, the present librarian. In the Intermission
the position of acting librarian waa taken by Miss

Commercial club, to whose auccea. from every point
of view, I am glad to testify. If Council Bluff had
had In the early day the same bunch of live wire
now galvanizing the bualneta battery over there, I
fear we In Omaha vould have had a hard time tn
pa our neighboring city, and get the lead on It
that we have. Although Council Bluffs' most dis
tinguished cttixeu, General O. M. Dodge, waa unable
to be present, around the board were seated the gov
ernor of Iowa, on of it United states senators, tho
congressman representing the dUtrlct, severul of the
state officer, and last, but not least, a former num
ber of the McKinley cabinet tn the penon of Lee lie

them Impressed the disinterested stranger with tho
fact that over In Iowa big, brainy mem are put Into

the evening waa made by Secretary Shaw, who wa
not on the program, but who "came back," with soma

one of th moat forceful appeal for a sane treat

he was eomlng west again In a few weeks, and In re
