Omaha's Public School System.
Asking that another million dollars In bonds
be voted for the purpose of providing needed
quarters, the Board of Education has In a very
practical way empbaMzed the fart that Omaha's
public school system has grown beyond the un
derstanding of tha citizens. It is our most im

Omaha citizens have alwayg had great prldi
in their schools, and hav made tha most liberal
provisions for their maintenance. The present
proposals of the Board of Education are made
after a full Investigation of the Immediate needs,
with an eye to the future, and will doubtless re
ceive the approval of the citizens. And in this
approval the newly acquired citizens of Omaha
may see the assurance that their school needs
-will be as amply taken care of.
A King- on the Water Wagon.
England's monarch has Joined with other
rulers of warring nations, and has determined
to make a great personal sacrifice in bis patri
otic zeal. He agree to stop drinking Intoxi
cants If the others will do the same, and thus by
example he hopes to set at naught the ravages
of the rum demon until peace has been declared.
This Is, of course, a fine exhibition of royal de
votion to the cause of his country, yet some of
his loyal subjects are inclined to Insist on the
right of a Britisher to do what he Jolly well Ukcs
when he wants to. It's not so much that they
are enamored of the drink habit, or that they
are not eager to aid in carrying the Union Jac:
to victory, but they Just can't quite see the con
nection between surrendering what has been
theirs ever before that day at Runnymede and
the triumph tbey feel certain 1 to be theirs at
no distant time.
Whatever of serious consideration has been
given to the Lloyd George proposal for prohibi
tion has been of a tone that warrant the con
clusion that England will, hesitate to adopt the
plan, even as a war measure.
The- Death of a Rothschild,
Lord Nathan Mayer Rothschild, a peer ot
England, Is dead in London. This fact became
of Interest chiefly because the dead man was a
member of the great house of Rothschild, whose
name has stood for wealth and the power of
wealth for mora than a century. The romance
of the Rothschilds Is always Interesting, and yet
it Is of small moment compared with the ma
terial achievements of this combination of bank
era. Other names have been more often seen
In print, or heard in public, of late years, but
always have the Rothschilds been reckoned with
before the final action In great credit move
ments was determined. European governments
have been the chief clients of the firm, and t
is on record that' their patriotism has ever "been
placed ahead of their selfish Interest.
' Nor has the energy of the accumlated wealth
of this house been exclusively devoted to the
financing of government schemes or the support
of private ventures. Millions of Its money has
been spent on public and private philanthropy,
most of it In a way that will never be known to
the public. It has been characteristic of the
Rothschilds that their charity was not used for
advertising purposes, and to this their position
is In singular contrast with the example of some
other very wealthy men.
All this would be commonplace were It not
for another tact. The Rothschild wealth has
been accumulated through banking operations
almost exclusively. Occaslcially a venture into
commerce or Industry has been made, but bank
ing has been the main occupation of the house.
And, so far as known, none of the two billions
of w ealth ascribed to its, members has ever been
obtained by "grinding the face ot the poor."
It is to Laugh.
All the funny things do not happen in funny
sunny Spain. Oa the contrary, the funniest of
funny stunts are sometimes pulled off right here
Here is our amiable local contemporary, the
World-Herald, handing out a double-decked
bouquet of ponies to the Commercial club and
the members of Its special committee, and the
law-makers instrumental In putting the Greater
Omaha consolidation bill through the legislative
mill, and congratulating them on their good
work which that paper did ita best in' all sorts
of underhanded ways to block and prevent. The
World-Herald, after fighting the project from
atart to finish, has the gall now to declare that
it "never had the slightest doubt" that consoli
dation would in the long run "prove to the best
interests of the annexed territory as well as
Omaha proper." In other words, that paper
brazenly condemns Itself as having been work
ing against the best Interests of this community,
but evidently hopes to get away with It by Join
ing in the applause over the auccessful achieve
ment ot what would never hav been accom
plished had it had its way.
It is to laugh.
War and the Workingmen
A Spaniab comtnUsloa is in New York nego

of the country, making neceaaary new channels

1 1 Arthur Ballard la Tha Outlook.
THAT the war will work profound chanrea In the
octal and political structure of Europe is ad
mitted as a truism on every side. During tha
firt nix i.r aeven monUia of tha great war the laboring
claaees of the different countries of Europe have
with .very few exception given support to their gov
ernment. The clas war haa been swallowed up l l
the war of nations. To what extent will this social
true persist after the warT
For many years tha organised worker of Europe
hav ben ardent apostles of peace. H la they who
fumlah moat of the "food for cannons;" it is they
In tha last analysla-who bear the burden of tha ap
palling cost of armament; and tha working claaa ha
the least to gain from ft ucceeful war. It waa nat
ural that they ehould lova peace end bat war and
the military claaa?.
When war became Imminent, the worker of all
countries strove yallantly to prevent It. Even In
Berlin anti-war demontnatlona occurred up to the
lot minute, lit 'Pari. Jaurea had Just returned
from uch a demonstration when ha waa aasaslnate.i.
Dut when. In plte of their effort, war broke out, the
various socialist and labor organliatlons with almost
eiual unanimity decided to support their respective
Universal military service la. In It social phaaa,
democratic. Th sons of bankera and butchera fight
side by side In tha trenches. Friendships which would
be tha exception In face of the prejudice of peace
become common In tha camaraderie of danger. A
often a not th worklngman geta mentioned in tha
order of tho day and get hla aleeve-atraps before hi
bo. And many people are propheeylng that thl
sacred union will last after tho atraln of war haa
From Germany we have very little and confltottag
Information. At tha outbreak of the war tho ma
jority of tho aociaim party and of th labor union
decided that the Fatherland had been attacked, that
thl waa a deffnlva war, and they therefore rallied
to the government It was officially announced that
tho German people were entirely united. However,
hardly a week had passed before the government
found- it advisable to suppress some of the working
Russia 1 the only country whera an organised so
cialist party haa definitely oppoaed tha war. In tha
Duma, tha di-puUes of ona of the socialist parties and
not the largest on refused to vote for the war
credit. Several of theaa deputies are now being tried
on a charge of high treason. Hut this affair does not
have a much lsnlflcanco In Russia, as It would have
In the more advanced western countries of Europe.
Th police repression is so stringent even In times ot
peace that there Is no chance for open democratic
discussions within the socialist movement. There Is
no way of knowing how nearly the action of theto
deputies represented their constituents. As far as t)ie
censorship allows us to Judge and this la not far it
seems that the Russian workingmen and peasant,
where they are not enthusiastic for the war, have
accepted It without opposition Just as they would
accept an earthquake or a famine.
But In Russia there' haa been no each union sacree'
as exists In France and Belgium and Is claimed In
Germany. The government has, to a certain extent,
accepted the collaboration of tha educated middle
elaase. Th municipalities and county councils hav
been allowed a new degree of liberty In the organisa
tion ot Red Cross and relief works. This may well
lead to a permanent improvement In Russian politics.
It may even be as the Russian Intellectuals believe
a definite step towards a liberal constitution. But as
far aa the common people go the city workers and
the peasants th czar accepts their sacrifices aa his
divine right. He has made no suggestion of giving
them any political rewards for their patriotism.
In England th opposition to the war did not come
exclusively, or even mainly, from the working class.
Th three member of the cabinet who resigned be
c'auae they ware unwilling to accept reaponatbUlty for
th war were liberal. ,One of the leaders of the labor
party, .Ramsay McDonald, and the Socialist Kelr
llanlio were at first bitterly opposed to the war. But
-they have changed their position., and at the recent
conference In London of the socialist and labor organ
ization of the allied countrle they both voted for
the resolution which waa proposed by the French and
Belgian delegates they pledged their entire support
to the war until the definite defeat of German mil
In England, perhaps to an even greater extent than
la France, the voice of the rank and file could make
Itself heard, and so could prevail over the individual
cenvicttona ot the "leaders." For all practical pur
poses the working class ot England haa been unan
imous in ita support of the government In this war.
Its patriotism haa been much more evident than that
of some sections of the middle class.
The labor organisations have done valiant service
In the routine, detail' work of relieving the distress
caused by the war, Their committees have faoed and
to a large extent solved the problems ot unemploy
ment They have recruited the neceaaary akllled
artisan tor. the government factories. In a hundred
way thay have cheerfully and ably co-operated in
meeting the new situation caused by th war. The
railways furnish a good example. The military au
thorities took over the entire transportation system at
the outbreak of the war. In each station you find a
military commandant who generaHy does not
know the difference between a flat car and a flying
machine. If it had not been for the loyal help of th
railway unions there would have been an unimagin
Another action of Immense value to tne wax office
waa the responsibility which the workers accepted
f auparvtslng the earning out of government con
tract. Tha time-honored practice of cheating tha
government on shoddy material haa almost died out
in Englaad thanka to the patriotism of the union

war office, a far aa I know received atich full value
for Its money. The British soldier are not being shod

Integrity. It might ba possible to estimate tha value
of thia service in pounds and shillings, but Its greater
significance, uulte beyond computation, ties in the In
creased comfort and health and effectiveness of the
men at the front.
But of all the patrlotlo service of the British work
lnginen the most costly to them and valuable to th
nation baa beea their surrender of their wag de
mands. For years the industrial situation tn England
haa been developing towards a crisis. The working
men of the principal trades of England had been plan
ning to strike together last fall. They , were going to
present their demands and. if neceaaary, trlko for
them simultaneously. It 1 mors than probable that
the German government waa fully Informed of tha
plan. If the worker had carried there out. Great
Britain would have been paralysed Industrially. It
was every bit aa serious a menace a th Irish crisis.
It I not too much to say that tha workers held the
fate of the British empire in their handa Their plans
were matured. But the moment war was declared
they patriotically sacrificed all their bopea of Imme
diately Improving their condition. All strike plans
were at once called off.
The war has progressed new for lx or sevtss
months. Tha coat of living tn England! has son up
steadily. The English take pride ta ahowtng that
thay are carrying on "business as u"J." And many
statistics hav been ptibllnhed to demonstrate that th
coat of living haa hot gona up aa much lit Great
Britain aa on the continent But th increase in the
price of the product which .the poor consume has
bevn very much greater than for more expensive food
stuffs. . Th rtae la prices haa not hit th middle and
upper rlaaaea very hard, but it haa been staggering
for tha workers. At the outbreak of the war ttte
German empire took many atepe ta prevent pecula
tion In food. Recently it has commando ail bread
luff. Th ' K. K." war bread, while a hardship tor
thoa accustomed to luxury, ia not much more ex-

OMAHA. April I. To the Editor of The
Bee: I see by the paper that the mayor
has again Issued a religious proclama
tion, setting apart a rart of Friday afUTr
noon as a publio holiday.'
I am sorry, but I must again record
my protest. This Is sn Infringement upon
the rights of American citizenship. Our
constitution expressly declares that "eov
ernment shall make no establishment of
religion." In spirit, if not In letter, this
applies T municipal as well a to state
and national government It is the glory
as well as the safety of our country that
hers church and state are absolutely
separate. No public official ha a right
to Issu a proclamation with regard to
religion, particularly not with regard to
any special kind of religion. No one form
of religion more than any other form be
longs to the city, state or nation. The
mayor Is the mayor of all the people and
not only ot those professing a special
creed or religion, be they in the major
ity or In the minority.
It is the special excellence of our in
stitutions that they reepect the rights of
minorities, particularly where religion Is
concerned. Our country guarantee
religious liberty. America would not be
America without that No form of re
ligion Is to be preferred above another
or to be given official recognition. Gov
ernment and every governmental official,
from the president of the United States
down, is to be absolutely neutral as re
gards religion, or he violates the very
fundamental principles of Americanism.
This Is no light matter:, It is vital. I
am sure the mayor doe not realise the
full stgniflcsnce of such action on his
part er he would refrain on any and
very occasion from Issuing a proclama
tion that has anything to do with re
ligion. A moment's reflection will show
the danger bf it 'Logically, he might
Just as wall issue a proclamation to fh6
opposite effect ot what he has, that no
one. for Instance, should keep any part
of Friday or Sunday, or any day, or that
everybody should keep some particular
day, the day of atonement for example.
Best of all Is to keep his hand altogether
off of such mstters. 'With all due
due respect, this Is no province of the
mayor's. Religion, by a deliberate enact
ment of our patriotic fathers, knowing
from history Ha cost in tears and blood,
Is absolutely a private matter between
the Individual and his God. Those that
wish to take a holiday between the hours
of 13 and 8 on Friday, or on any day, can
do so without the proclamation of the
mayor. Jt us not play with tiro. Let
us keep America Invlolato. the pure and
noble country that It Is, practically ss
well as theoretically the home' ot a per
fect religious liberty. In- the end and in
the long run this would prove the best
I make my remonstrance nubile, as this
is a publio matter. For the highest, deep
est Interests of ell. I do sincerely hope

cognizance of any particular form of re

we can attend to in our great and grow

OMAHA. April 1. To the Editor of Th
Bee- I am pleased to see your editorial.
"Will Great Britain Oo Dry." and fully
agree with you that it may well be
doubted if the people of England will
patiently submit to such exercise of regal
prerogative even aa a war measure. . I
am sure Engllah-apeaklns people differ
somewhat from the Russian Moujtk, who
can only be handled with a club.
At the same time, ' if the English gov
ernment tries to reduce the consumption
of alcoholic liquors under present con
ditions, it has at least a semblance of
excuse, instead of such action or agita
tion being baaed largely on misrepre
sentation, as it is in this country. For

of the prohibition flying squadron. In

ment that 114,000 men and boys were killed
In California In ona year because of
