Th profoundest philosophy will hardly be
able to withstand the effect of tbe brutaliilnf
Influences of the pre dent war. Tbe Bee la not in
clined to take a pessimistic view, because of Ha
firm faith In tbe general upward tendency of
humanity as a whole, but we cannot behold tbe
loosening of all the baae passions of man without
feeling that the raiiae of civilization haa lost
something that rannot readily be restored. Just
now the Ignoble elements of man's complex
nature are In the ascendancy, and all tbe pa
tiently reared edifice of human achievement t
eufferiog from the results of the debauch that
haa followed the commencement of armed con
flict between the leading exponents of all en
lightenment. Hope lives, and philosophers com
fort themselves with tbe thought that out of It
will eventually come good, but the moat readily
apparent result of this war so far is a retarda
tion fo all constructive efort.

at least, when; all the world may unite in a com
mon tribute to the source and Inspiration -of
humanity's deepest and most lasting affection.
The impulse-is one that goes far back into tbe
earliest times of the race. The Egyptians based
their theology on motherhood, their story of
creation being involved in the great mother,
whom they worshiped, and their greatest deity
was the divine goddess who brooded lovingly
over the earth and sustained it by her constant
care. Other schemes for creation, existence and
aalvatlon may have departed in some degree
from Qls thought, but through them all mother
hood has persisted at a vital factor.
Mother is the most aacred word in the lan
guage, the name to which mankind clings with
the fondest veneration. The impulse of mater
nity runa through all creation, and the function
and responsibility of motherhood is the subllmbst
trifst that can be given. . Nowhere else can be
found the equal of the mother's devotion, the
length of her sacrifice or the quality of her love.
The world may laugh at all other things of life,
but It takes its hat off to mother.

of motherhood," and all creeds and sects loin
in saying "Amen." .

Science and Healing-.
One point, too commonly overlooked, la con
nection with the practice of healing. Is given
illuminating emphasis by the Journal of the
American Medical Association. That paper
points out that if a man'e watch Is la need of
repairs, he does not take It to a blacksmith or
tinker with It himself, but takes it to an expert,
that It may be properly adjusted. Yet when
that same man discovers some of his bodily func
tions have become deranged he is quite as apt to
turn himself over to the ministrations of an un
informed person as be ia to seek out one who la
qualified to tell him wbat is wrong.
The point tbe Journal seeks to make is not
aimed especially at any of the healers, but is
Intended to draw attention to the very important
business of determining the nature and the
causation of disease. More than this, the neces
sity of early as well aa accurate determination
ia jet forth aa a vital factor in the combat
against disease. Modern methods require that
a properly equipped diagnostician be an expert,
familiar with the handling of high-power mlcro
scopes, able to recognlie specific germs, and full
of a vast quantity of specialised knowledge. To
him should be left the naming of tbe diaease,
because his Is the knowledge tbat can be relied
After the nature of tbe diaease has been
fixed, then tbe sufferer may. if he so elect, eek
out any form of healing that meets his individ
ual view, and may submit himself to be treated
by the laying on of hands, by mental processes,
by massage or manipulation or by getting an
old-faahioned doctor's dose. Wbat he should
do is to make sure of what really alia him, aud
here is where the science of diagnosis subatt
us accuracy for suets work.
One Lesson of the Election.
If our recent Omaha city election teaches one
lesHon more than another, it' roust be that the
quest of votes is not helped by the candidates, or
their spokesmen, running; down their home town.
While no one denies that civic conditions con-,
stantly offer room for improvement, Omaha will
compare favorably In every field of public and
private activity with other cities of the same
class, and thjs is so thoroughly known that peo
ple take no stock In luridly painted pictures por
traying the terrible depths from which we are
to be lifted only by putting somebody out of
office to make way for aomebody else.' The
knock-on-your-towu . and blow-your-own-horn
method of campaigning evidently does not get
anywhere, but, on the contrary, even when per
petrated by self-constituted newspaper cham
pions, reacts to tbe detriment, instead of to the
advantage, of the favored candidates who other
wise might pass as good and well meaning fel
lows.. ' ' , 1 '.' .
We hope that this lesson of the electionit
Is the same lesson that was taught by the elec
tion of last fall will not be lost entirely on
those who will have charge of future campaigns,
and particularly on those who will have charge of
the coming campaign for prohibition, who, we
know, will be aorely tempted to pursue the same
blackwashlng tactics. '
Getting Back at the ."Jitney."
Less than a year has passed since the light
automobile was brought into service aa a com
petitor with the trolley car, but its spread has
been so general that the "jitney" has made its
entry Into' nearly every large city In the country.
The literature of the "Industry" .is growing
apace, with volumlnoua reports from - surveys
and Investigations wherever the condition war
rants serious consideration of the problem. Some
of these say the Jitney has already run Us course,
and others predict that the Jitney ts the begin
ning of the end of the trolley car, but tbe trolley
is not ready to yield, and the fight for suprem
acy is under way.
In Los Angelea the case has been submitted
to a referendum vote of jthe citlsens. In Van
couver the, trolley line haa struck back by a re
duction in fare. Other cities have yet to meet
the problem squarely, but we will doubtless soon
hear of other measures for dealing with the
auto aa a common carrier. Regulation is Im
perative, but the public ia ao far gainer In the
service rendered. The trolley. If It Is to hold
Its own. will have to meet the Jitney bus aa U
did the horse car and the cable line, by serving
tbe public best.
Good Time to Visit School.
Here's a bit of advice for parents of achooi
children so timely and so pointedly put by Col
lier's Weekly that we'pass It along Just as It la:
About now la a mighty good time te vialt tha

better, the children are getting tha spring- energy Inte
their work and play, the year's lnatructtoe haa had
plenty of time to aoak In, and the achooi year will
end next, month. For aome yeare you're bean'paying
taxea to be spent on educational work set around
there now and ahow that you are latereated alee in
seeing what yuir children get out ot thee taxes.
Tou would su fast enough If tha achooi house waa
your factory or orchard or pasture, and yet chlldrea

Our public schools are doing good work, but
they would do it much better if the children's
parenta manifested real interest In the work by
a little personal observation and supervision
now and then.

HOW natural it ia to compare the torpedoing of tha
I'Ualtanla with tha ainkln of the Titanic! Rut
while both of these disaster carried hundreda
to watery gravea, tha excitement over the Titanic wma
much more tense and Intense. Varloua reaaona for
this are obvtoua, primarily the fact that the aucc
alon of events elnce tha opening- of the European war
has dulled and hardened popular senalUvenesa to
cruahlns- calamities, and haa made tha extinction of
hundreda and thousand of Uvea a subject of routine
news reports taken almost aa a matter of course.
Mora to the point, however, la the fari that the Ti
tanic vlctlma Included representative cltlwns from all
parta of the country acarcely a city or town of any
alae whose people did not knoW peraonally aome of
those who went down. Here In Omaha, for example,
one of our leading business men waa a doomed paa
aenrer on the Titanic, whose uncertain fata kept the
demand for further Information keen, and brourht
homo a comprehension of what had happened mora
vivid than will be any mental picture of the Lusttanla'a
How many newspaper readera have any well de
fined notion aa to how they are able to have the re
sult of an election, like that held herej m Omaha last
week, apread before them In newspaper extraa within
a few hours after the poll close? Approximately 20,000
voters marched tip and marked their ballot and de
posited them In tha ballot boxea. There are 88 voting;
districts in Omaha, averaging; about 2W) votera, and
the election board In each polllnjr place operatea en
tirely Independent of every other election board. The
counting and tabulation la dona by tha Judgea and
clerka of the respective voting districts, but the col
lection, assembling and compilation of t'ie rcturna de
volves upon the forces In the newspaper offices. Tak
ing this last election, which Involved fewer than the
usual number of offices, each return contained tha
flguraa representing-- the vote cast for fourteen dif
ferent candldatea for commissioner, and for and
against three separate referendum measures, making
twenty distinct Heme of flgurca. or a. total of 1,769 for
the whole 88 districts. For several years Tha Bee and
tha World-Herald have co-operated In gathering end
tabulating election returns In order to avoid duplicat
ing the labor and expense entailed. Arrangementa are
made by which a bright messenger la assigned to ao
cure and hrlng In to the central office the footlnga
for each voting district. Tha boy copies Ma figures on
a sample ballot, or upon one of tha regularly prepared
return forma, and theaa are re-copled for tabulation.
To save time and expedite the work, the figures are
first telephoned In, and then verified later. In reading
off and copying and addition, although the adding la
now dona by machine, tha possibility of error lurka.
Notwithstanding all these haaarda, the compiled re
turns have proved In this case to be so accurate
that the official canvass has aerved 6My to cor
roborate them, and the newapaper announcements of
the winners atand unassailable. In spite of tha fact
that a difference of only some thirty votea separatee
the low man credited with success and the high man
downed by defeat.
I doubt whether we In Omaha will ever again have
such prompt and early election returns, for a law
passed by the late ligealature, becoming effective la
July, 'changes the hours during which the polls are to
be open, establishing uniformity for both Jprimarlea
and regular electlona, so that the voting will continue
from S o'clock In the morning until S o'clock at night.
If closing the polls two houra later nteana deferring
the work of - collecting and tabulating the returns for
two hours, than the speediest extra telling who Is
elected can hardly get on tha atreta next time much
before 10 o'clock at night,

The seventieth birthday party of Actor Crane
made his performance of the "Henrietta" in Omaha
an exceptional engaarameat. My recollection of first
seeing Crane was when he waa doubled up with
Btuart Robson la tha "Comedy of Errora," popularly
known as "The Two Drotnloa," the dromloa alter
nating la successive scenes until the last act, when
they both appear together. J remember that I had
not been aware that the two dromloa were different
dromloa, and that my surprise waa more real than
theirs pretended to be when they finally bumped Into
one anotstar while backing across the stage. .A seven
tieth birthday celebration on tbe stage Is a rare oc
casion, and the Joy of it almost put Mr. Crane and
bis associates out of their Unea. I remember anotner
exceptional dramatic performance where the aadness
ef the occaaion practically broke up the play, it being
the performance of "Macbeth'' by the tiooth-Barrett
company at the Broadway theater In New Tork when
the word waa brought to Booth, and quickly spread
through the houae, that Ban ett waa flying, and tha
remainder of the lines ware recited aa if at a funernl.
