; 'Omaha's Greatest Need." ;
i a section of the Omaha Woman a club do
) voted an afternoon to hearing a discussion bv
' several hobby-riders of the question, "What Is
Omaha's greatest need?" The replies to th
ouestion ere in all hut one Instance an elabora
tion of some one of the several "reforms" that
have bwn harped upon for a long ttme. and
with no other effect than to keep the champion
tn the public rrinis.
It must appear to a stranger, reading ai.
Omaha paper In vchlch Is published a report of
these meetings, that the city Is Indeed in a sad
way. Our cltitenshlp in general is attacked: we
are told we have no civic conscience, that oi'r
I business men are moral cowards, that our ofli
' cials are venal, and that our men of means and
j nf fairs are corrupt ionlsts. Omaha is pictured
as reeking with vice, and menaced continually
by an organization of crime too horrid to he
told, that our homes are poorly managed and
that we are in the very last stages of moral and
All of which is pure boh. What Omaha
really needs is a surcease from the everlasting
blackwashlng It has received from zealot, and
a little more attention 'paid to the woman who
was brave enough to sound amid the general
I mourning an optimistic not. Omaha ts a beau
tiful place to live, a city of homes, of schools
and of churches, where good abounds, where
life and property are secure, where culture anJ
good morals prevail generally and where the in
dustrious and thrifty may reap as great reward
for their effort as anywhere in all the world.
Omaha need most the constructive co-operation
of all lta people.

nothing to compel a convention delegate to vote

NORTH lyOI'P. Neb.. April C.-To the
Kdltor of The Hec: Thert is now a very
numerous discussion tliiougi-out the na
tion on the subject of increasing railway
rates and cur fare. Stme having begun
the d.sriission the American people are
finding that railwHv i-apit.il stock is an
uncertain r.uantiiy. The acts of the rail
way management In si ndinu hundreds of
millions of dollars in terminals for the
principal reason of increasing the value of
real estate in the great centers of popu
lation where the high financiers have ex
tensive investments, is a ytihject that
should not be overlooked hy the public.
Why ia there any cause for Hsklns nn
lnsra.e of rates at tMs time? What is
the remedv f
In the primary campaign In Nebraska
in lH we saw the spectacle of a man
running- for railway commissioner who
acted the part of a progressive, hut more
recently we eee him pushing a hill in the
legislature by whivh no city in Nebraska
may establish any sort of munh iiial en
terprise without the consent of the rail
way commission. The court which fixes
Interstate rates ia the Interstate c'oni-merc-a
.commission, appointed by the
president. How many of you remember
the Incident a year ago where Senator
Xml. Follette violently opposed an sp
polntee of the president for a position on
that commission? That appointee had an
infamous corporation record in New Jer
sey. How may the people xpect justice
on the freight rate subject when we
know that the personnel of the commis
sion haa been hand picked bv the rail
ways, which usk th increase In rates.
There used to be a man roaminK ov er this
continent whom we called a silver-tongued
orator and from his speeches vou would
think thit were he ever to get in rower
corporation .malefactors of all colors
would be prosecuted to the limit. Now- he
tells us that railway securities should be
as good as government bonds. A w ord of
the president would chsnwe the personnel
of that commission and hence the coniro-
versy of freight rates would cease, if the
