Britiih Cabinet Changes.
Sweeping changes in the personnel of the
government of Great Britain do not occasion so
much astonishment, when viewed In the light
of some recent developments. The formation of
a coalition cabinet looks like a very shrewd
move to give eac h of the severaf political parties
of the United Kingdom Its full share of respon
sibility in the conduct of the war, thus doing
away with criticism arising from partisan blaa.
The new arrangement haa also the advantage
that will come from better oversight of the de
tails of each department because of a division
of work between the cabinet officers.
Friction In the British navy department has
been known ever since Churchill went over the
heads of his associates to order the construction
of battleships for which he had no warrant. It
was a natural result of a "progressive" civilian
trying to direct a "conservative" sea dog, an'l
one or the other had to go. Lord Kitchener la
coming In for a great deal of the comment that
seems to be part of the experience of a war
minister, In war or peace. With him at the head
of the army, and Lloyd George in charge of the
business administration of the department, this
storm will probably subside. Asqulth and Bonar
Law will make a good team, and with Balfour
on the list, the political strength of the United
Kingdom will be represented on the new cabinet,
where tha unity of patriotic purpose ought to
create a harmony partisanship would never
The Situation is especially Interesting, as
Indicating an unsuspected flexibility and re
sponsiveness on the part of the English govern
ment. A similarly critical situation haa seldom
been met with such dexterous statesmanship.

Two Separate Questions Involved.
The effort to block Greater Omaha con&olld
tlon by attack In the courts proceeds along dual
lines, and raises two questions, which it will be
well to keep distinct and separate. An Injunc
tion is asked to prevent the holding of an im
pending special election, first, on the ground
that the consolidation act Is Invalid, as
being prohibited special legislation, and second.,
for the alleged reason tngt the election commis
sioner law, under which it Is proposed to hold
the election. Is likewise invalid as a piece of
prohibited special legislation.
To an outsider only casually versed In the in
tricacies of the law, It would seem thst a
stronger case is possible against the election
commissioner statute than against the consolida
tion act. Yet the latter Is In no way dependent
on the former except as an Incident, for there
must be some method of semiring a legal election
in which to pass upon, the question submitted
by the legislature whether the people of Omaha
and its adjoining suburbs desire a consolidated

tion actually. conducted by the election commis
sioner as de facto officer must hold "Whether the

Many reasons are advanced for Italy's eager
ness for war. One potential factor is over
looked. The collapse of the tourist business
leaves a multitude of natives without adequate
visible means of support.
Not the least of the disturbing features of
tha situation Is the threatened closing of Rome's
famous rumor factory. Should that calamity be
fall, London and Amsterdam no doubt will rlri3
to their greater opportunities.
Election Commissioner Morebead Is the
nominal defendant la the case to enjoin the
consolidation election, but the real defendant la
the city of Omaha, or rather all the people who
favor Greater Omaha consolidation.
The ancient and honorable coroners' Juries
of Great Britain enliven the gloom by hurling

the recruiting offices await the presence of jury

Peace with Honor.
President John Grler Hlbben, the successor
at, Princeton of the present president of the
United States and delegate to a conference that
has long stood for the highest and most definite
idealsAof peace among the nations of the world,
and an earnest advocate of the doctrine, Is re
ported to hsvo "startled" the Mohonk confer
ence by his address at the opening session. But
what Dr. Hlbben said merely sounds very clearly
the aspirations of all free men. We have been
frequently told of late that there are things
worse than war, and peace without honor la
one of them. '
Honor is as far beyond price as it is beyond
measurement or the accurate definition of lex
icography. It is a matter of latitude or longi
tude, but i shared in common by all responsible
beings, no matter what their status. The nations
now at war are deeply concerned la honor and
for thla must have the honorable regard of all
other nations. Some dishonor may reside in the
present warfare, and, if so, ultimately it will
be determined, but when the ftghtlng has come
to an end, national honor must be made the
basis of a peace that will be permanent. It will
be possible to provide a "place la the sun" for
all, but only because honor carries with it re
Dr. Hibben could have given voice to his
sf ntlnients. which are those of all right-thinking
men, In no better place than at a conference
looking to the settlement of all international
disputes by arbitration. Peace is always to be
desired, but only peace with honor is enduring
or endurable. . '
A MONO other minor effects the war
XTL I'M chanr the dealirn of the Oarman empreae'
bookplate which hearsor. at last reports, did bear
tha anna of England adjoining tha arma of Germany.
History haa alwaya reacted upon bookplates. Nona
but tha seduloua collator or tha persevering student
haa been aware of this: and. to tha world at large.
h. tnrt tin meant aa nearly nothing a any artUtlc
fact can: yet as anyono who reada la never quite be
yond the danicr of owning a booSplat. It may noi
be uninteresting to contemplate briefly aome of the
Intertwining! of bookplates with history.
Ponvmcd of ld-aa perhaps not altogether unliUe
aome that infuse Oermany. Maximilian, emperor of
Mexico, used the arms of that enfevprfd country to
ornament the label by which ha announced the own
ership of th books that crowded his shelves. And
the son of Captain Cook, tha navigator, hlmeelf at
home on the sea, adorned his symbol of possession
with a llttla map thst showed thoee very aeas where
the late Kmden rruld. Napoleon's brilliant brotnor
had a plate, aa did also tils "second bravest general,"
and tho annnls of France are not complete In their
Intimate aaperts without mention of tha book marks
upon which tha Bourbons glanced aa they Idly opened
tho rich volumea of Pompadour. Malntenon and Du-
Barry. Perhaps In France mora than elsewhere his
tory has directly affected tha bookplate, for the revo
lution covered up all tha fine armorial with which It
was tha fashion to enfold one's name and replaoed
the titles with plaii "cltoyen." And for years tt
caused a dearth of fresh designs after tha trt-color
succeeded the lilies.
Just as ona considers it certain, for Instance, that
tha Oerman empress will banish the arma of England
frotn her plate, one speculates on other and leas ob
vious probabilities In the same kind. Rudyard Kip
ling lias a plate which Ills father made for him. V 111
ha supplement It with another, tha design of which
shall Indicate some new expression of his patriotism
as the old plate with Its symbolic elephant expressed
bis interest In India? Will It become tha fashion
among MbHophlles In general who e-pe tha modern
slings and arrows of Flanders to represent something
of their temporary profession of arms upon those
charming labels which, seen In a man's books, speak
for his tastes In the things of Ufa and therefore in
tha literature that pictures life for him? And wjhat.
one asks, will be the effect upon the bookplate of a
war that may drive to books many men who, uncrip
pled by wounds, might spend their lives more actively
than in the atudy?
Without doubt many an Kngltshman and many
German will own copies of the same war books of
which such a countless number now fait from the
ceaseless presses. The collector amuses himself by
wondering what diverse designs may thus In duplloate
books llluatrate opposed Ideas. This is idle specula
tion: It is for lovers of bookplates: and. collectors In
this field must be granted their license by those whom
It does not conrern. But suppose that In the years
to come a British officer upon whose bookplate a
little picture Illustrates an Incident in tha storming
of Hill SO should meet a Oerman survivor whose vol
umes were marked with a sketch commemorating the
relation of the same hill to his fighting days: suppose,
to stretch the long arm of coincidence further, that
three graphic memories should be pasted In copies of
the same book would not that ba Interesting?
Our George Washington had a bookplate, and
Bushrod Washington, too. Our Paul Revere was an
engraver of .bookplates, snd five examples of his
work are still in existence today. Tha history of
Germany, where the first bookplate was made; the
history of France, tha history of Etogland and that
of America is tha history also of men whose personal
tastes have contributed to the history of the book
plate. The moat natural thing in the world for the
man who owns books Is to stamp them with his
name; next ha surrounds his name with a scroll or
appends it to a picture, and finally he tries to choose
a picture that speaks for his likes in the world. Just
aa Ipss directly his n&ma speaks for him. In all thla
ha Is influenced, of course, by his environment, bis
experience and bis times. So bookplates have received
their stimuli, like other examples of art, from widely
varying directions. : They have been influenced by
the church, 1 as Wolsey's plate testifies; they have
been moulded for a nation of bibliophiles by one great
designer, as witness the results of Chippendale's work.
And they have been -modified by wars, as they were
by tha French revolution and the War of Napoleon
as they may be, one wonders how, by this conflict.

Keeping Government Alive.
Importance that naturally attaches to serious
communications between our government and
the nations of the world Is enhanced at the mo
ment, because tht United States Is Just now the
one great agency through which the function of
government is kept alive In the world. The na
tions at war have entruated their Interests to
Uncle Sam at all points where the war interferes
with regular communication. This, In effect,
means that the external business of the greatest
governments Is being trauaacted by the United
Itatca. In addition to this tremendous under
taking lu the diplomatic field, the United States
has voluntarily assumed the lead in the work rf
succor and relief, feeding and clothing the des
titute and caring for the human wreckage cast
up In the back eddies of the war. No nation
ever look upon itself so great responsibilities,
and yet the task is being borne with little or no
evidence of Its existence, while the dally routine
of life la America shows little or no sign of the
government's great activity abroad. This solll
achievement of the republic affords much ma
terial for future study by the statesmen of the
world. It Indicates more than anything else
could the respect of the world for the character
of the American people.

What Greater Omaha Needs.
OMAHA, May to. To the Editor of The
Bee: There has been much talk about
the good that would be accomplished by
a consolidation of Omaha, South Omaha
and Dundee Into a Greater Omaha. Ws
should have had a merger Into one city
years ago, for there is always strengui
in numbers. But I fall to see Just how a
consolidation in Itself is to make a more
progressive and a more prosperous city.
The mere fact that these cities have
united will not alone bring outside In
vestment and capital here; neither will
conventions do It. I vouch the statement
that, outside a few merchants, conven
tions have never been of benefit to tha
city at large. They have never brought
people In our midst who were to stay nor
have they brought invested capital in
business enterprises. They do advertise
our city, however, and anything tending
to do that cannot be overlooked, but the
greatest factor In developing a city Is the
push behind Its Commercial club. This city
is fortunate in having one of the most
wideawake, live-wire Commercial clubs In
the country, but regardless of this they
have overlooked one thing which, If
properly developed, would make this city
really a greater Omaha in wealth, pros
perity and population.
Several days ago a friend of mine, a
bentral Nebraska banker, expressed sur
prise at the fact that the Omaha Com
mercial club had failed to bring auto
mobile factories to this city. He Informed
me that the freight on Ford cars from
Detroit to Nebraska points was approxi
mately $36 and that no parts of the car
was now protected by patents.
As his business brings him In contact
with the farmers of his vicinity and sec
tion of the state he Is in a position to
know the kind of car the average farmer
is able to buy. In his opinion a good
cheap ear would always find a ready
sale in Nebraska. . '
It his been a source of surprise to many
people In Omaha why the capitalists have
not organised a company for the manu
facturing of cheap, durable cars, similar
In some respects, but better in others, to
'the Ford cars. Some of the millions wow
going' to the great Michigan factory
would thereby be kept and expended ia
The tributary country for sales would
be large- Most of the eastern freight
would be saved by shipping cars made In
Omaha to Nebraska, western Iowa, the
Dakota, and western and southern
points, and this could be figured In oa
the building cost of the machines.
Mils section of the country la strictly
agricultural in Its pursuits, and where
tha farmer must depend on the success
Of his ycrops for prosperity he Is in no
position' to buy high priced cars. He Is
looking for an automobile that will give
htm satisfactory service and one within
bis means. '
Tho time Is ripe for the organization
of an automobile factory in Oma'ia, and
there is no reason wh such a plant.
backed by man of ability such as we can
nroudlr point to tn our city, should not
meet with Instant success, because we
have the advantage of freight rates and
location not enjoyed by Mr. Ford. The
raw materials can be shipped here from
the mills about Chicago practically as
cheap as Detroit gets It.
It would not be amiss for our commer
cial club to take under serious consider
ation the feasibility of such a sugges
tion now that they are boosting for a
