Indifference What's the Reason t
If any one thing stands out strong in our
preliminary city election It Is the manifest In
difference rf the roters of Omaha to the busi
ness of local self-goTernment. Not orer ball of
those entitled to rant thtlr ballots hare taken
the trouble to ' discharge their civic duties,
which means that half of the voters are self
accused as stay-at-homes. The blgb man in the
returns has a clear majority of the votes cast,
but it is doubtful if any of the others In the top
fourteen are majority selections, while the two
low men go on the final ballot by the favor of
only 10 per cent of the voters.
Is this Indifference because we have de
veloped no issue for the campaign, or Is it be
cause we have undertaken to eliminate partisan
ship from the contest? Is it because of lack of
funds and machinery to get the voters out, or Is
it just because of the don't-care spirit among
the people, surfeited with elections and not yet
fully recovered from the long ballot of last fall?
There must be a resson, or, perhaps, many
contributing reasons. But whatever the explana
tion, It Is not creditable to oar sense of citizen
ship. Gifford Pinchot'i Predicament.
Clfford Plncbot, forester, sociologist, and
otherwise distinguished as a leader of forlorn
Vpe and the like, with the martial experience
..ained at Armageddon to sustain him, has been
thrust out of Belgium, because the Germans
have discovered that he -is brother-in-law to a
British diplomat This Is not the first time that
man baa gotten Into trouble because of his fam
ily, but It seems a little singular that an Ameri
can citizen should be disqualified for work of
charity on account of bis relatives.
On the same grounds, if the precedent la to
be followed to its logical end by the warring
nations, a number of European royal personages
would have to be set afloat, for their marriages
and gtvings In, marriage have been so entangled
that even the experts of Burkes or the Almanaca
de Gotha are puzzled to keep them straight, and
none of the belligerent countries could harbor
them. Tor example, the mother of Kaiser Wll
hclm and the father of Klnft George were
brother and sister.
However, Gifford Pinchot'i service has not
been the less valuable y reason of his sister's
marriage, and the United States government
can easily find use for hip in some place where
the tender German sense of propriety will not
be so potent, ' . ' '

Significance of the Chicago Vote.
The tremendous vote , for the winning candi
date for .mayor la Chicago must have' a deeper
meaning than Its local application. Chicago has
been for' many years a democratic stronghold
and Its vote his had1 much influence in deter
mining the result in Illinois on state and na
tional elections. In the recent primary election
' Sweltser was namod by the democrats la prefer
ence to Carter Harrison by a majority of over
75,000, which is proof of his strength with hli
own party. He went Into the campaign with this
prestige and emerges defeated by a record vote.
Tho personal difference between SwelUer and
Thompson is not enough to fully account for the
158,000 plurality the later received. It muBt be
that party affiliation bad something to do. with
the result, and that the people are actually turn
ing away from the democratic party and Us
record of disaster. The vote In Chicago and
other cities where party lines were drawn' Is a
good sign for the. campaign of 181$, and pre
sages republican triumph.

deeping car porters eould not live without tips,

One Way to Save the Taxpayers.' Money.
One of our amiable local contemporaries
properly expatiates on the good work done here
In Omaha by the Salvation Array Industrial
home, but It entirely overlooks the most signifi
cant feature of the reports, which proves that
the men cared for at this place are fed good sub
stantial meals in all respects far better fare
than the prisoners at the county Jail ai a cost
of less than 8 cents a mail. Any one ran figure
this out for himself, because on the 'showing
39,263 meals were served at an expense 'some
thing under 13,000. If honest men who keep
out. of Jail are fed at this low cost, why should
our graft-greedy sheriff have had the support of
the World-Herald In his demand for 50 cents a
day, of which more than half was to have lined
his pockets as loot? We move to let Captain
Kline do the jail feeding and ave the taxpay
ers' money. '

Victory for Established Law.
Tho conviction of the Terre Haute election
manipulators Is a victory for the people, and of
greater importance than appears on the surface.
The safety of our free Institutions rests on the
sanctity of. the ballot, and crimes against th
purity of elections are of the most dangerous
sort, for they strike at the very roots of our
freedom. ,Sotne novelty attaches to the prosecu
tion of these offenders, In that the Unitod
6tates practically "invaded" Indiana in order to
take charge of the trial. This proceeding grows
out ot recent election reforms, and la made pos
ilblo by the fact that the federal government It
concerned in the election of senators and con
gressmen. Thus another blow la delivered
against atate's rights, but the more significant
fact ia that a gang of impudent democratic ballot-box
stutters has been broken up, a circum
stance apparently not possible without federal
interference. The people are always the gainer
when such convictions are secured.'

OMAHA, April 7,-To the Editor of
The Bee: The Anti-saloon league's fake
factory, parading under the name of
the temperance society of the Methodist
Episcopal church of Tope k a. Kan.,
through Its publicity bureau offer to
furnish plat matter to th newspapers of
the country, and tbelr latest sheet con
tains tho following wilful misrepresenta
tion regarding, the effect of prohibition
in West Virginia. It quotes from tho
statistics! abstract tha average tax rate
In tho different states for 1919, which tax
rate for West Virginia Is particularly
low, being Sft-WO cent per $100 of assessed
valuation. Mind you this la for 1913.
Then It roes on to say, "a csirful reading;
of the table show that prohibition la the
greatest tax reducing agency," thu
brazingly attempting to deceive the pub
lic, knowing toll well that prohibition did
not go into effect in West Virginia until
July 1. 1914.
Then It goes en to ahow that tho tax
rata In Nebraska la $4.?r per tll on, as
sessed valuation, knowing also that the
assessed valuation In Nebraska I only
one-fifth of th actual value; so that
$4.37 on the assessed amount meana only
en-flfth,of that on actual value, or 8fc
cents par tl$0. or a trifle less than West
Virginia. .
Now the real effect of prohibition In
West Virginia, according to recent dl.
patches from Charleston, W.-Va., la that
tho state is "broke," and that a mor
atorium . has bean announced. . . Being
without funda State Auditor Darst haa
suspended the honoring of drafts. The
main cause Is the loss of more than
S90 annual revenue from liquor license.
Measures before the legislature provid
ing for other klnda of taxation to cover
tho deficit were voted down, so that
the governor vetoed a large part ef tho
appropriation bill. Including that sup
porting the state mlliUa, which will
therefore cease to exist State officers
from tho governor down will not be paid
for probably three months. State build
ings under construction will be halted.
On top of thla comes tho refusal of
Juries In that tato to convict for viola
tlons of the prohibitory law. Po that al
together West Virginians win not bo
much impressed with the benefits derived
from prohibition, . notwithstanding the
Anti-saloon league's publicity sheet,
which by such misrepresentations brands
all other Information contained therein
as unreliable and mendacious. Can and
should any cause built on misrepresenta
tion auc ;eed ? A. L. METER.

SOUTH OMAHA. April 7.-To the Edi
tor of The Bee: It seems to me that th
best way out of tho problem Jn regard
to giving the annexed territory repre
sentation in the city government of
Omaha would ba for tho legislature to
amend the Omaha city charter ao as to
provide for tha election of two additional
comtilssloner by the annexed cities and
towns when th consolidation Is com
pleted. In that way there would be nine
commissioners Instead of seven and
Justice would at the same time be dona
the annexed part ot Omaha, It does not
seem that nine commissioners would be
too many for a city of 3no,0o0 population.
Have th charter so amended that 'the
two additional commissioners would be
elected on tha fourth day of May. If
my suggestion Is followed I : doubt. If
there would be more than a few hundred
votes cast la . tha election against the
consolidation with Omaha. By follow
in mis ptan a great aeai or. money
would be saved that would be spent In
case th election for th whola city of
Omaha la postponed. By allowing the
annexed district the two additional com
missioners It would create a feeling of
good wtil all around. F. A. ANONEW.
