The country U safe! ta smiling- Wall atrcet Considering lta opportunities, that legisla ture could have done a great deal more damage Another sign of spring the reappearance of the base ball score board in its familiar haunt. The federal court of Indiana strikes a blow for honest elertions that will be felt from sett to sea. Our graft-greedy sheriff will not lose any thing on a 3-cent allowance for Jail feeding, but it's tough on his lawyer-lobbyist partner, Terr Hants politicians, smarting under tha federal lash, no doubt can out-lament any Ne- braskan on the "encroachments of federal power-" If that many ballots were east Id our recent elimination election, then comparatively few of them were marked for a lull Mat of seven can dldates. Now let our nonpartisan Water board es tablish a rule barring political activities by sal- tried employes, and then see to It that the rule Is enforced. It Is not generally known that South Omaha haa a paid School board, which after merger will give way to an unpaid board, anl we hope with out deterioration of the service- 8U1), if the voters really want to retain the services of those self-sacrificing county officers, they can re-elect them at the proper time with out the aid or consent of any legislature on earth, Maintaining the dignity of public office with out a publlo limousine Is painfully difficult. An officeholder without a gas wagon at call la In danger of becoming an object of suspicion or derision. Can Gorgas Do It? The proposal of the Rockefeller Foundation to send General (lorgas to stem the scourse of typhus fever, now devastating Serbia, and clean tip the country in a sanitary way, comprehends the mightier! task ever net for man. It Is an en terprise compared to which the job of ridding the Canal Kone of yellow fever and similar dlsesses was a holiday. On the Isthmus General Gorgas had the a' tlve assistance and hearty co-operation of a highly organized military force, sod an intelli gent civil government. In Serbia he would have neither. However willing the authorities may be to assist him, or anyone else in the under taking, It is impossible at present. The Serblau military authorities have all they can attend to with the armies 1n (he field, while the civil gov ernment does not exist, so far as it might be useful in such a huge enterprise as ridding the country of the plague. Conditions in Serbia are most appalling, and are growing worse; adjacent territory Is Ihrea' ened, and will undoubtedly be Invaded by tlie scourge, unless checked. Science can check the spread of typhus or similar fevers, but to do so must have assistance. If this can be had, Oor gas is the man for the undertaking. His genius for organization, his fearlessness and bis fa miliarity with sanitary work make him mot available for the succor of Serbia. Again has cultured Europe turned to America to a work for humanity, which can not be done by the civilized nations of that conti nent, because they are engaged 'n the most, stu pendous of human conflicts. The longer the war lasts, the brighter glows the record of tha United Ststes. Entertaining- Company. "Our hospitable shores" has ever been a prime favorjte n figurative utterance for poet and orator, and It may now be expanded slightly by adding "and harbors," for the seaports of the United States are entertaining distinguished company these days- Another German sea rover has just put Into a nook of shelter over which waves the Stars and Stripes, and will probably remain there till after the war is over. It will be welcome, as are the other ships that have taken similar refuge. Uncle Sam has plenty of room la his harbors for all the navies of the world, and will gladly give them all anchorage, if they will only come In and behave. Incidentally, there's a further touch of Ger man humor In the story of the Kronprlns Wil helm. Overtaking a British cruiser devoid pf ammunition, th Germans transferred Us most effective artillery to their own ship, mounted them, sank the Britisher, d sailed away on a cruise of eight months, finally destroying seven millions of property for the glory of war. J !.J JB Launching a Presidential Boom. Democratic prophets are busily engaged Just now In working out plans for properly putting the second term candidacy of Wood row Wilson before the publlo. How to launch the boon without giving it the appearance of being a po litical move is the problem they are seeking to solve. One of the proposals Is that Mr. Wilson make a (rip and deliver a few speeches, not for campaign purposes; far be It from that, but Just aa a sort of visit with the folks, and to tell them pf the many noteworthy feats i accomplished b? Ills administration- This' ma? fool the demo crats, bunot the public. If the president Is no more successful In his promised addresses than he was at Indianapolis, he would better stay at home. As a matter of fact, the cabinet officers are and have been busy on press-agent tours for the administration for months, each vtelng with the other In sounding the praises of the president and his party. All of this explanation and ad juration seems to suggest that the "spontaneity" of the eall for Mr- Wilson's second term candi dacy takes a great deal of Inflation. This Is es pecially true when the renominatlon is a fore gone conclusion. .It wouldn't be a bad plan for the presideut to get out and mingle with his fellow country men. No other occupant of the White house iu many years, not even G rover Cleveland, has held himself so entirely aloof from the people. A "swing aroupd the circle" might not help hU chances politically to any great degree, but it would do him ne harm to get a little more first hand knowledge of the geography of the United States. , Aimed at Omaha Tekajnah Herald: riovernor Morchaad haa signed tha bill whlrh annexe the aiirrouadlna towna to Omaha. Consolidation (a now an acrompllshad fact and is bent for all concerned Tlielr Intereau wera but ona and now they can work In harmony. Omaha now baa over 20n,m population, a bis. buay, hustliti western city, of which all Netraka la proud and should continually aid In every poealWe way. Fremont Trllx.ne: While the conaolldatlon of it uburlja with Oman la to be submitted to a vote of all of them concerned at one time, that city la al ready aaaumlns that consolidation in an assured fart. Omaha will vota pretty tmanlmouHly la favor of tak ing In Its suburbs, and It matters little bow they vote: thoy will have, to com In anyway. It will add .' or M.Ort people to the city and give It a bla; boost w hen the next cenaua la complied. The truth Is Omaha la dtlni-d to be a great city and Is certain to make a remarkable growth In the next ten years. Just now It Is In much thriftier condition than most similar cities of the country, by reason of tha prosperity ot the territory supporting It. No city In America is fieer from busineea stagnation and the problem of unemployment at this time than la Omaha. Annexa tion and consolidation la ona of the stepa of tha new development that Is making Omaha conspicuous anJ which will ba more and mora apparent In the near future. Falrbuiy News: Jim Pahlmen was renominated in Omaha, of courae there war a faw other men chosen also, but they are of Mttle consequent. Nebiaaka (,'lty prens: Omaha la making great preparations for tha proper welcoming of Nebraska newspaper nun In a few days. Tha newspaper boi of Nebraska are always glad to go te Omaha, too. They know the bra.id of hospitality the metropolis always has on tap and there are no lagging momenta. Mra who attend the annual conventloa in two weeks are looking forward with kean anticipation to a most enjoyable atay as guests of Omaha. Fremont Tribune: Heren attempts at suicide In Omaha In nine ditys have been mads by residents of the suburbs threatened with annexation. Fremont Tribune: Omaha Is going to vote next month on the question of permitting Sunday base la "In Its midst." Do you want mora than one guess on how It will vqtsT Hastings Rrpubllran: Now that greater Omaha In to bo a fact here la hoping that the people of Ne braska's leading metropolis will be equal to the task of benevolently assimilating the people of the" annexed towns. Lincoln Journal: Soft pity almost forbids us to mention the Omaha World-Herld In this connection. The World-Herald was chiefly responsible for the nomination and election of Morahead laat year.

The World-Ileyald'a courageoua support of the eleci.-'e. light bill waa an Important factor In getting It through the. legislature.

Twice Told Tales A current report of the purchase of a sixty- mile railroad la southwestern Kansas for fl should clinch the argument that a road properly capitalised can be made to pay dtvldenda on tho investment. Still, there is no good reason for worrying over the troubles of Americans abroad. The scenery at borne Is not quite as thrilling, but is Infinitely more conducive to high thinking and long living.

Among the really good measures enacted by the legislature It one Intended to make possible the acquisition pf a workfarm and the erection of a workhouse In Douglas county. This is one of our most urgent and long-felt wants something Tha Bee haa beeu advocating for years, aid which we hop will now material ize before long. -We have had temporary rock piles and occasional road work for our petty of fenders, but most of the time our police court prisoners have had no more unpleasant pros pect to face than a thirty to nlnety-day rest. cure In the county jail. Idleness for Jail prisoners is contrary to i every accepted doctrine of prison policy, to say nothing ot Its costliness, and the Invitation It offers to professionals to make this community take care of them. A workhouse should no; only reduce the cost to tho taxpayers of main taining prisoners, but should cut down the num ber of those to be cared for by serving notice t j outsiders that police court conviction in Oman means enforced labor rather than a loafing Jon. Our county authorities and civic organiza tions should , get together without delay on a workhouse program aa a project of practical philanthropy and business economy combined. The Kalerr Laughed.

"Ypry well, -go cnl" said tho kaiser, addressing tle captain. "I.did not know you had this talent' The officer hesitated a moment, then extending his arm and reproducing the Intonation of his sovereign. he cried In a strong voice: "Captain, you ahould be chaaed out of the array. but In consideration ot your youth and because know you to be a worthy and brave sodlcr, I pardon you." .

LYNCH, Neb., April U.-To the Kdltor of The Be: Some time ago I read In The J'.ee an article in which China appealed to the I'nlted 8tate for assistance, claiming that the demands made upon It by Japan were unjust. The appeal seema to have made a strong Impression upon our nation. But, beware! It la only a plot. China and Japan are working hsnd-ln- hand. While the nations of Europe are at war. Japan and China are laying the foundation for the domination of the entire world. Japan has been preparing for years snd In Its present demands upon China. Japan has laid a very clever trap In which It hopes to ensnare, not only t'nele Sam. but also tha nations of Europe. It Is high time that our states men come to realize the fact that the nations of Europe now engaged In an orgy of destruction are all unwittingly helping pave the way for tine yellow peril. I for one believe that a stopping of ahlpping and everything to the porta of the belligerents until a safe convoy can lie granted to every port would help mightily In bringing nearer the end of thla struggle. Europe needs America and If each is refused our aid unless all may receive that aid. It will likely result In neither getting It and esch sooner coming to the place wher peace can snd will be dls- ctissd. It would also be a wise move to per suade the South American people to Join with us In this move. America ran neu tralize the warring natlona If It moves as a body. M. M. KOHDB. Atsla the OB4laalat. BlOUX CITY. Ia, April li-To the Editor ot The Eee: A correspondent signing himself E. O. Mcintosh, perpe trated this gem of philosophical thought: "A pessimist Is one of the greatest evils that ever annoyed the community, but an optimist will laugh even with the hangman's noose around his neck." So will an Idiot. 'Tie said that fools rush in where angels fear to tread. The fool is the greatest little optimist alive. A wis man a man who understood the law of cause and effect would very naturally have peculiar misgivings re garding the distressing' effect of a rope around his neck. But tha wise man would also have avoided the predicament. To me, an out-and-out optimist is amus ing even If he is dangerous, because of a disinclination to exert energy. Ho who deliberately closes his eye te conditions of life falls to do hla duty and Is content to live simply for his own comfort. Slums, political scandal, divorce, labor problems, business problems, religious wrongs all thsse, the silly optimist would permit to continue without doing anything to bring about happier conditions. Ths real optimist Is the pessimist who doesn't lose his pense of proportion. Ho looks at the dark side of things, hut never gives up hope, ae matter how much gloom meets him. He keeps peg ging along, neither Ignoring conditions nor made discouraged by them. Nona of ths world's greatest men haa been the sort to laugh with a hangman's noose about his neck. Jesus Christ, Mar tin Luther, and every other prominent figure of constructive history could prop erly be classed as pessimist men who were not blinded to the evil of their dav. The pessimist sees, sings' and works: the optimist sees, sings and shirks In only one thing are they different. CECIL MONTAGUE. 'Safe and Bane" Commencement. II LAIR, Neb., April 12.
