to the Lunltania and other Incidents of recent
development, will well meet with the critical
analysis of sober minds. It makes no reresaloit
from the position of the United States, an

for the loss of any American lives or the de

The excuse put forward by the Germans thst i
a "warning" had been Issued In advance of the
sailing of the Lunltania Is fairly met by the pres

quirements of International law, of treaty con

It will be only a few weeks before Omaha's
Auditorium will pass Into the possession and
control of the city, and it will devolve upon the
city commissioners to see thst it Is managed In
the way most productive of public good. With
an intsreat charge of less than 17,000, and no
taxes entered up against It, there Is no good
reason why this enterprise should not be run on
liberal lines, and at the same time be a profit
Item on the ledger.
The whole problem lies In devising new uses
for the structure. Any investment that Ilea
idle most of the time must entail a loss. The

by large groups of the population, and this ran

entertainments that are held there and encour

Another requirement is a reasonable
schedule of rental chargea to be adhered to with
out favoritism or discrimination, and a clear
definition of what constitutes a community en
terprise for which the use of the building is to
be free or at nominal cost. Only if these thing
are settled in advance, and settled right, will
the acquisition of the Auditorium by the city be
marked with success from the start.
Our Nary All Rig-ht
The timorous soul, who dwells far Inland,
and knows of salt water only as he reads about
It, may again coma from out bla retirement and
renew his appreciation of life. For we haro
Just been asaured, and by those who ought to
know, that the American navy is capable of up
holding its traditions and of vindicating the
honor of the United States In any emergency.
This information comes at a timely moment,
and ia la cheering contrast to the latest report
we had from experta concerning Unci Sam's
naval establishment. - On former occasions we
were told of the rickety and unaeaworthy con
dition, of the ancient craft tbat were supposed
to bear the Stars and Stripes through the waters
of the seven seas. They were rusty and full of
holes, and didn't dare fire their guns for fear
they would fall to pieces under the shock, and
if they did fire their guns tbey would exhaust
the available powder supply. It wouldn't make
much difference, anyhow, for they couldn't get
close enough to hostile craft to do It any dam
age. Oh, yes, of course; that was when con
gress wss In session, and the appropriation bill
was pendtng. It does make a difference at
what season of the year we talk about our navy.
Man for man, gun for gun, ship for ship, the
navy of the United States is aa good aa any that
floats, and in avery test to which it has ever
been put, has proved itself matter of all.
Accumulating TJielen Knowledge.
The amount of energy, mental and physical,
dally expended In doing things of no particular
account haa been variously estimated aa to vol
ume, but la generally conceded to absorb a con
siderable portion of human effort. The latest
exhibition Is by a student In a Pennsylvania
agricultural college, who baa set himself the task
of smoking sixty stogies a day for a specified
time. Hlg announced purpose is to determine
the burning qualities of the tobacco used in tbs
manufacture of tb stogies he consumes. His
undertaking seems scarcely possible of human
accompllbhrnent, but should he succeed In thn
stupendous feat, he will have contributed to th
growing weight of evidence that the fool killer
is no longer able to keep up with his work.
Tasta la tobacco varies with the Individual,
and the devotee of the atogy doesn't worry his
head about what it containa or how it burnt.
He wanta something that will smell and smudge,
aod be usually gets It. Users of tobacco in
other forms are profoundly Indifferent to the
stogy In any ot its manifestations, and will not
be Interested to any degree in experimentation
with that device for smokers, if this young
man pursues his venture to the ultimate con
clusion he will merely have added to the vent
amount of useless knowledge tbat baa been de
veloped by freak Investigators.
riv lawyers will draft the Initiative petition
to submit statewide prohibition to the votera of

lute the senate Innocently supposing that facts, fig
ures and reason would govern tha deiiheratlona of
that body. He found the winter' program prear
ranged by a combination of nineteen senators who
were not thsr for their health. Qulnby might have
the logic and the protest and th consciousness of
rectitude, but they had the votes. Th nineteen
"wooden Indians" were made up of sixteen democrats
and three republicans. It waa an Impregnable wall.
The democratic party could not be held responsible,
because In th ether house th situation was reversed.
fo tha people cannot tell where to place responsibility
for th situation and, in th confusion of parties and
of houses, th voter does not know exactly what to
do. Hence Mr. Qulnhy calls for tho abolition of the
senate and th "clearing out of th Jungle which tho
gray wolves and hawks Inhabit." Would It not be a
simpler procedure to take each man on his record?
Th records of the legislators sr open books. It Is
wall known where they stand. If the people send the
"gray wolves' and the political traders to do their
business for them, what can they expect? In electing
