America's Share in the War.
President Wilson's address to the membeii
of the Associated Press Is. really a message to
his fellow countrymen, and to the world, stat
ing the attitude of the United States in the pres
ent war, and the share this country will be ex
pected to bear in the readjustment that Is to
come. It Is a calm and encouraging statement,
plainly setting forth a view that is shared in by
II thoughtful citizens. America's part in the
war will not be to fight, but the greater task of
assisting to make th pear of Europe and th
world permanent, if possible.
A few sentences of the president are pe
culiarly pregnant and should b carefully pon
dered by every citizen, no matter in what direc
tion he hag allowed his sympathies to turn. De
fining neutrality, he said:
It la impartiality of spirit and judgment. I wish
that all of our fellow cltlxena could realise that There
Is In some quarter a deposition to create dletempeis

go to war upon either aide, there would be a divided

I for one have a complete snd abiding faith In that
great silent body of Americans, who ate not eta nil In g

of America. I am Just aa sure of their solidarity and
of their loyalty and of their unanimity, If we art
Jostly, as I am that the hlatory of thla country haa
at every crisis and turning point Illustrated this groat
Thes words are for th world as for Ameri
can citisens. They fairly Indicate the thought
and purpose of th citizen of this country. Anl
back of them is th deep and earnest desire,
shown In so many ways already, not to nation
ally assist In carrying on th war, but to give
all aid, in whatever way possible to the estab
lishment of concord among the nations, not only
of Europe, but of the world, that the arts of
peace may prosper, and mankind may enjoy
their fruits to the utmost.
The Big- Thin; Ahead.
The big thing ahead of Omaha is the devel
opment of new and additional Industries to
transform the raw materials of Nebraska farms
Into finished products.
Omaha is already a manufacturing city of
fair achievements, but it has gotten only a start
toward what can and will be done here when
w utilize fully our opportunities. The corn,
wheat and oatg grown In Nebraska goes in large
part through our elevators, but only a small
fractional portion is converted into flour and
cereals here. The cattle, sheep and hogg raised
in Nebraska and neighboring territory are mar
keted at South Omaha and the meat is dressed
there, but the hides, wool, horns, bone and other
by-products go elsewhere to be finished. The
fruit and the vegetables are here in quality and
quantity to supply great canning and preserv'n
factories; th seed Industry can be largely ex
panded; th creamery business Is bound to take
on new branches.
fucceesful manufacturing Industries have
been built up at other points much less favor
ably situated than Omaha. With th most pros
perous agricultural territory In the world fur
nishing a home market right at our very doors,
energetic development along' these lines would
be certain of speedy and satisfactory returns.
Today Nebraska honors the memory of on
of Its pioneer cltlxena by planting trees. It Is
hardly probable that J. Sterling Morton had auy
thought of this outcom or his injunction to his
neighbors, but it so happens that his Idea has
burgeoned even as did the trees he planted, and
"Plant Trees" Is now a well obeyed- mandat
throughout almost the entire country. To its
beauty as well as to its utility, Nebraska pre
seats eloquent testimony, In waving groves of
stately woods, whose uplifted branches mant
the skyline In every direction, where only a lit
tle whll ago there was no break between tho
prairie and tha sky. Nebraska's "treelesg plans"
bav passed away before the application of Ar
bor day and its lensons.
Th annual observation of thi holiday brings
the people of the state nearer and nearer to a
realisation of the advantages that flow from
forestry, and some time the work of scientific
and systematic forestratlon of some of the pres
ent day waste places, so often urged by The Ben,
will b seriously undertaken. In th mean
time, let the citisens continue to plant trees,
knowing that thus they are doing service to
the stste as well as to themselves.
The Bock Island Mutt Be Regenerated.
Wb.ll th proceeding was not altogether an
ticipated, the appointment of a receiver for th
Rock Island railroad was nevertheless a shock,
especially to th peopl of the central west Th
receivership for this apparently prosperous rail
road Is th direct result of reckless speculative
operations, carried on by a group of financiers
who sought to create something out of nothing.
It Is the end of an experiment In stock gambling.
The Rock Island is a great railroad, and
traverses a wonderfully rich agricultural region,
from which the traffic return is as sure as the
seasons. It stood but a short tim ago as a
splendid example of a conservatively managt-d
property, and was unquestionably prosperous.
PI nee that time it has been Involved in a may.
of stockholding transactions, so intricate that it
may take th court a long time to straighten out
th tangle. But th Rock Island will not vanish
because of thla enforced reorganisation. It
should be regenerated, and with a return to Its
earlier methods, should soon be again on of the
most prosperous of th country's great railroads.
Work Not All Well Bone.
A review of th output of th late session of
the legislature shows the effect of haste In tho
final consideration of bills. Too much was un
dertaken to permit giving proper consideration
te all, or even to any, and aa a result many bills
were passed without proper action. A number
of these, are likely to fail, because of the techni
cal errors that have crept In. Among these pos
sibly defective bills are a number of real merit,
such aa the law to give state aid to schools tha:
teach manual training and agriculture. The bill
failed fo make any appropriation tor carrying
out it objects. Th bill for a boundary com
mission, to aettl th Jurisdiction over land be.
tween Omaha and Council Bluffs, may go down
for the sime reason, and otbera might be rlte..
While the legislature did a large amount ot
work, It did not do all of It well.
Kach succeeding Arbor day Is a tribute to
the memory of a distinguished Nebrasksn.
Observations on Iowa
rederlck M. Davenport la The Outlook
IOWA Is a homogeneoua atale. The percentage of
the later Immigration of the backward races (roin
southern Europe Is excedlngly amall. There are no
large rules. Wealth la distributed with a very con
siderable measure of aqtiallty. Fifteen years ego ob
servers of Iowa were struck with the somewhat run
down tone of Its public and social life. Tha decadence
of tha church, tha delected tenants of the land, the
low stat of "railroad" politics. Impressed beholders.
Prosperity and tha fighting edge of the splendid Cum
mlna group of political progressives have changed ell
that, and prosperity Is entitled to much credit Corn
and hog are at the bottom of moral progreee In Iowa.
The growing demand for tha chief commodltlea which
the stat produces, th rise In price of thes food
supplies, have in various waya profoundly benefited
Prosperity has quickened th social spirit. In th
plao of th old Individualistic and decadent churches,
th new centers of religion In the agricultural districts
are socially concerned with th happiness and con
tentment of all th people here and now. The Joys
and comforts of prosperity have opened the eye of
the people to see that their soil Is their chief asset,
and that their land policy should be a first concern. A
commission of qualified men has been looking Into the
system of tenantry that has grown up In Iowa. They
find that to per cent of the farms aw now occupied
by tenants, and most of tha leases are for only ono
year. Tha tendency of thla la toward th Impoverish
ment of the land. There la no Incentive for the tenant
to replenish the land or to Improve the fertility of the
soil. He works It to its limit and moves on out of
the state, for Iowa haa decreaaed somewhat In popula
tion In the last ten years In spite of her prosperity.
Th skimming, tripping habit haa got Into the blood,
and a certain proportion of the-tenant farmera have
moved on towards the coast or Into th Canadian
northwest. Oovernor Clark of Iowa, In message
thla year which Is full of human interest, declares It
to be the very first duty of Iowa to preserve Its soil
and to exercise Its sovereignty through a law relating
to landlord and teant. The fixing of the conditions
of tenantry, long-term leases, a compensation to the
occupier for Improvements and fertility added to the
land by him, a co-operative system of distribution so
that the agriculturist may realise mora from his
productive toll, the development of rural credit under
the fostering rare of the stat so that safe loans for
improvement purposes may be obtained by the farmer
aa readily as by the manufacturer these are the great
social Ideas which are revolving In the minds of th
people of Iowa.
Lest I give the Impression that Iowa Is a Utopia,
let me say that I am speaking of the dominant trend
of the present leadership of the state, and ot the atti
tude of mind of the people which prevails after a thins
Is talked out. It would of course be possible to point
to more than on Instance of narrowness and tempor
ary blindness en th part of th electorate. Only this
year a wav of public retrenchment and financial re
form, which fortunately Is sweeping the country,
struck lows. Iowa haa a stately capltot building and
beautiful monument to the soldiers of the great war,
standing upon wbat might he a 'commanding slope.
But, from a distance, you can see only the peak of
th capltol because of a motley collection of shacks
and sheds which surround It. At the last session of
th legislature an appropriation of nearly a million
dollars was authorised for the purpose of purchasing
and clearing away thla circle of ugllneaa. The con
sequence was that the voters turned on the legislators,
and three-quartera of the lower house we. a defeated
for re-election on this Issue. But the greatly needed
Improvement will soon have the commendation ot
everybody! All of which illustrates tha precarious
nature of public service In a democracy.
Another Instance of the limitations of Iowa demo
cracy Is seen In the attitude of the people towards
their splendid University of Iowa. The College of Agri
culture la disconnected from It, better supported, anl
In better favor than the university proper. Some day
thf power ot th university In developing honest nd
Intelligent and efficient leadership In a free state will
dawn on th farmera of Iowa, and then they . will
realise, as they do not fully now, the tremendously
useful and self-aacrlf Icing work which Is being don at
Iowa City. A powerful college of applied political and
social science, for example, -1 connection with tho
university, would yield rsturns In expert public see
vants that would lift Iowa and every other state In the
union to a higher level,
Increasing prosperity In Iowa has produced favor
able political reactions. Half a generation ago the
railways of Iowa were th government. Through the
lavish distribution of passes among Judges and editors
and politicians and merchants, a railway machine
which bore not the alien test resemblance to the In
struments ot popular government was long perpetuated.
If th farmera had remained poor and mortgaged,
that control might have continued. A well-dlstributcrd
Prosperity Is a prerequisite to a cautiously advancing
democracy. Poverty and Injustice and tyranny lead
to advance by revolution. But there la a better way.
Tli man who Introduced the first antt-paaa bill Inta
th Iowa legislature was laughed at. Now he Is very
greatly respected, and some day they will build a
monument to him! : 1 ' '
Iowa has never ben a radical state, like Kansas
or Nebraska. It Is about the beat example we have
of a cautloualy progreaalve state. It never needed tho
progreaaive party. It was well on the way toward
Its goal before 1911 The fight for the fredom and prog
ress ot th stat centered about th breaking of the
shackles ot railway control and th securing of the
direct primary, so that th people might have aome
ahow at nominating their own candidatea for office.
Thla was all over by 1U7. Th growth in unity be
tween northern and southern Iowa la Interesting to
observe. Northern Iowa has a strong strain ot th
New England stock, and haa always been enterprising,
vigorous, snd ronsclentloua. Southern Iowa was
settled from nearby states en Its border, Is of a atock
at first not so enterprising, and Is inclined to be cun
servatlve. The power of th railways pass soaked
Into southern Iowa much deeper than Into central or
northern lewa. and it took long to break the domina
tion ot the machine there. Northern Iowa Is furnish
ing the leadership of. progress. United States Senators
Cummins and Ken yen and Governor Clar'V are from
the north country. But the unity of the two sections
la becoming more and more pronounced, and, gen
erally speaking, it would be hard to point to the mind
of a commonwealth In the union which Is working
out more soberly into the long future of self-govern-ment.
The inscriptions in the state house, carved titer
during th governorship of United States Senator Cum
mine, expreas well the temper f Iowa. They nil
breathe th New England sense of duty as well ta
the national eplrlt: "Nothing Is politically right whlcn
Is morally wrong;" "lowa-the affections or Its people,
like the rivers of ita borders, flow on to an tnaeparable
union." And beneath the atanda of rolora of tha in
fantry, tha cavalry, and the artillery of the civil wir;
"He hath Inoaed the fateful llghtninga or hla terrible
awift sword. Hla truth la marching on;" "lord God
of Hoata. be with ua yet, leet we forget, teat we for
get;" 'Th Judgments of the Lord are true and rlghu
oua altogether." The Iowa brand of progreaa Is a
pretty good brand. It la not hysterical or Impulaive,
and la not Inclined to go too fast. But it has gret
faith In th moral forcea of th world, and inaiata
that thlnga keep moving onward. It haa pioneer
American instincts and is devoted to the nation.

Parklasr the Aatwa.
OMAHA, April a. To the Editor of Th
Bee: This new idea for Omaha of park
ing th autoa In the middle ot the streets
Is exciting much favorable comment end
I would like to make a further suggestion
that Is, to erect a railing at each end
of the parking space, with a suitable stm
to pedestrians to warn them to keep an
eye open for a possible auto coming down
the street parallel with th parked cars.
I have seen several narrow escapes,
mostly women. This suggestion Is not
meant for criticism, and Is In line with
"Bafcty First" Also I would like,
through this column, to express an ob
server's appreciation of the beautiful
window flower boxes at the Fontcnelle
hotel and at Kllpatrlck It Co.'a store.
Why cannot more Omaha merchants fol
low thla example? Minneapolis la held up
as one of the most beautiful cities In this
country, but I think Omaha outclasses
Minneapolis, with exception that Minne
apolis Is much given to floral display
decoration, nearly every merchant hav
ing a shrub of gTeenery or flowering
plants either In front of his place ef bual
neaa or in the window. And also there are
no dilapidated sidewalk signs to mar
the beauty of that city. Out to the green
houses at Hanscom park th city of
Omaha has a world of beautiful flowers.
Why not have some of them downtown?
They will be sppreclated.
