Oar Katioaal Wealth.
The United. Stales census bureau has just
given out Its estimate of the material wealth of
the country, fixing tbe tout value of all prop
erty ia the United States at 187.78,000,000, or
Sl,5 for each man, woman and child In the
country. These figures are just a little' beyond
the grasp of the human mind, our can a good
illustration be given to convey an Idea of their
immensity. If Noah had set oue of his sons at
working to count, at the rate of one each second
when be came off the ark, 5,000 years ago, and
the task bad been kept up continuously, dsy and
night, without cesatloa from that time until
today, the tale would still be thirty billions
short of the total. -
The leaps with which we are accredited with
accumulating material wealth in the last fifteen
years are equally stupendous. Ia 1900 the
wealth of the country was returned by the cen
sus at 182,303.000,000; In 110 the figures
were 1100,178,000,000, and in 191Z It was set
down at ' 1176,416. 000,00. Bixty-five years
ago, U 1860, the material wealth of the country
was placed at $7,13.O0O. Today one state.
New Tork, Is rated at f 28,011,000,000, or more
than three times the whole country's wealth in
18 CO. Illinois racks second to New York in
wealth and Pennsylvania third, each being cred
ited with more than fifteen billions. In per
capita wealth, excluding all property that la not
li&ted for taxation, governmental, educational,
rharlUble and religious Institutions, Nevada
lauks first, with 84,865 for each of its citizens,
and Nebraska Is fifth in the list, with a per
carlta wealth of 12.954.
Comparative figures are available only for
the British empire and Germany. In 1904 the
wealth of the British empire was eatimated at
$108,280,000,000. tt which 172,997,000,000
was for the United Kingdom. At that time the
wealth of the United States was set at 1107.
104,000,000. In 1908 tha wealth of Germany
wns returued at $77,884,000,000. These coun
tries have undoubtedly made increase la the
years that have elapsed since their last esti
mates wete made, but it Is not probable they
have kept pace with the wonderful advance of
the United BUtes,
The Tyrolean Cockpit.
History, with modern variations, is booked
for repetition in the houtheastem slopes of tbe
Alps, when the plumed warriors of Italy join
issue with the legions of Austria-Germany.
Half a century and six years have passed by
since battling armies contended for mastery In
this cockpit of southern Europe. In the spring
of 1869 the present aged emperor of Austria,
then 29, commanded Victor Emmanuel to disarm
and dismiss the Italians of other states of Italy
who had Joined the army of Sardinia. Napoleon
III held a grievance against Francis Joseph
about that time and quickly rallied to the sup
port of Emmanuel. Together they chastised
the armies of Austria, drove them out of Lom
bardy and finished a succession of victories at
the battle of Solferino, sear the shores of Lake
Garda, which forms the bare of Austria's wedge
Into northern Italy.
Italy's chief gain by this war was the fecon
quest of Lorobardy. Napoleon and. Francis
Joseph made terms of peace satisfactory, to
themselves, leaving Emmanuel holding the sack.
Tbe French emperor annexed a slice of the
Riviera and the duchy of Savoy as compensation
for his services, and Austria wss allowed to
hold Venice, Venltla, Trentlno and Dalmatla.
Seven years later, when Bismarck bad Prussia
ready for the seven days' war, Emmanuel 'Joined
in the fray and forced Austria to cede' Venice
The Italy of today is vastly different from
the ttaly of 1866. Then It was a collection of
divided and Jealous states. Todsy it is a united
Italy and a greater fighting force' than at any
time in Its history. Whether it will recover the
territory twice wrested from Austria by the first
Napoleon remains to be determined. With the
exception of the lowlands adjoining the gulf of
Venice, the mountainous boundary line is un
surpassed for defensive purposes, and renders
invasion of Austria a perilous undertaking.
Father and tha Family. . v
We knew it would come, even if tbe waiting
was long, and that In time father would receive
some attention. He Is now ' getting his. A
pseudo-scientific body has added to other enter
talnment at the San Francisco fair by announc
ing that fathers should share with mothers in
responsibility for the family and the care ot the
children. More than this, it is proposed that a
federal, board shall be created to take charge of
this important matter and look after the train
ing of fathers along right lines.
Good old dad! At last he is to share in the
uplift. All he has to do nowadays is to hustle
for food and clothing for the family, to supply
its pleasures as well as Its necessities, and make
such arrangements for the provision of these as
will continue some time Into the future after
his taking off, He must help Willie and Mary
and the rest of the little folk In their work and
their play; he must tend the furnace, look after
the lawn, fix it with, the landlord, the doctor,
tbe grocer and all the rest of the host his family
bring htm into contact with, and when this fs
done he can snatch a little sleep .between times,
so lie can hold his Job and be able to deliver the
goods every day. And new, he Is to be permitted
to have some share la the responsibilities of the
home, and to be especially trained in order that
he mtyvbe properly fitted for his new duties.
Ifa a great world for dad!
Actloa of th Kohonk Conference;
A resolution endorsing In earnestness the
course of tbe administration in maintaining the
United States In an attitude of. rigid neutrality
and for its insistence on regard for the rights
of neutrals was about as far as the Like Muhonk
conference could go and not violate its own
strict regard for neutrality. But some strange
sounds disturbed the placidity ot the atmosphere
around that Adirondack lake during the week.
John Grler Hlbben's virile statement of the
American idea, followed by a vigorous discus
sion Of the need of being prepared for national
defense, gave a novelty to the proceedings that
relieved them of much of tho ' insipidity that
has attached to the purely academic debates
usually had at these gatherings. The purpose
of the Mohonk conference Is to forward affairs
of humanity by discussing, determining and dis
seminating plans for action, and this time it had
international arbitration for its theme. Its
action is only potent through Its moral influ
ence, and the fact that It did listen Co speakers
who urged bettor preparation for national de
fense is a proof that Its members are alive to
tbe importance of the topic. ,
The Ethics of the Oath.
- The Pee a few days ago reproduced In part
an article from a technical legal msgatlne on
the ethics of the oath, in which' the author
dwelt with great emphasis on the multiplicity
of instances in which, we require a solemn ad
judication. We have come to awear to every
thing even more than we swear at everything
from a tax schedule to a voter's register, or an
Insurance application, not to - mention every
form and refinement of Judicial procedure.
Taking oath so often Inevitably means taking
oaths lightly, and the overdoing ot the oath
taking business is at the bottom ot the all too
prevalent perjury; .
But where the ethics of the oath has sus
tained Its severest breakdown is not in exces
sive swearings, but in the deliberately planned
conspiracy ot distortion and falsification 'by
which an evasion ot the law or miscarriage of
Justice is aimed at. The framed-up evidence in
court is the perjury that ia deadly, but. unfor
tunately, the law draws ao distinction between
false oaths so concocted and the merely careless
swearing to routine documents. To constitute
perjury it is, or should be. the intent that
counts, and the manner, method and purpose of
violating the oath should determine the intent.
As 4 matter ot fact, however, prosecutions and
convictions for perjury are almost as rare as
convictions for high treason, which doubtless
helps explain why perjury is so common.
Up to date ou,r two amiable contemporaries
are both knocking rather than boosting tor
Greater Omaha consolidation. Don't hang back
because Tbe Bee baa led la this progressive
movement. Greater Omaha Is big enough for all
our efforts. ,

SOME WONDERFUL, movie film have been ex
hibited In Omaha recently llluatratln graphically
the prooeaaee of nature, animal life and far away geo
graphical and geological formatlona. yet opening sut
a VI at a of the poaaibilltlea of thetua of the camera
reproductlona for purpoeea of Instruction and educa
tion. I have been thoroughly convinced for quite a
while that tha future of the movie Ilea In Its adaptation
to tha achoolroom. and the college laboratory. I was
much g-npreeaed by a description onoa given ma of a
acreen portrayal showing the growth, of a roea buah
from a tiny aprout to a large piece ot shrubbery laden
with magnificent flowers that had leaved, budded and
btoaaomad aeemlngly right before hla eye, and all in
their rich natural colore. It struck me almost aa a
work of necromancy or wizard's art. I afterwards
learned that thoaa pictures were made by training a
cinematograph earner In front of the growing plant
with a Urn clock apparatus adjusted to snap a photo
graph at fixed periods of so many minutes or hours as
might be desired. Tbe film, which it took weeks or
months to produce, when later unrolled at the custo
mary speed, thus spread before the eye in the course
of a comparatively few minutes an -unfolding of na
ture In Its completeneas, whlrh no ena could see or
grasp In any other way. The moving pictures of sub
marine life, the views of rare Antarctic animals In
their fro sen homes, tha motion photos of ioebergs.
volcanoes and glaciers means that It will be but a
ehort time -till all the visible wonders of the world,
and many visible only through the microscope er the
tfleacope, will be brought to ' us instead of making
long Journeys to see them.
Just think, what nature study can become for the
school child with the help of the movie! I have al
ready put It no to Superintendent Oraff and to Roo
ert Powell, aa member of tha Board of Education, that
on planning our new school buildings we should look
ahead, and as a progressive community, make pro
vision for the Installation of the moving picture ap
paratus. A lot of expensive, and Often unavoidable
equipment, for experiments in physics, chemistry and
other sciences, would be made unnecessary because
motion pictures of them In the successful operation of
experts will fill tha requirements better.
. The same suggestion is equally good for our hew
medical college, for rare and difficult surgical opera
tions could be demonstrated on the screen as well aa
In the operating room perhape better In affording op
portunity for leisurely and more careful observation.
For this purpose,' the new teaching hospital should be
prepared to make the film pictures, as well as to show
those made elsewhere. .
. I saw an announcement In some publication the other
day that the University of Kansas had Just estab
llshcd a department which la to send films of edu
cational value to schools In various parts of tha state
applying for them at no expense except the carrying
charges, to be shown to the pupils In the local theater.
The time, I feel aure, win soon arrive when the school
movie lesson wilt go around the circuit Just like the
traveling library in serial sections aa scientifically and
artistically prepared to fit the course of study as the
Irresf stably attractive text-books that have been de
veloped for modern school use. '
It Is always gratifying to originate an Idea that
"hits It off." so to speak, and It goes without saying
that I am particularly pleased to see bow the sug
gestion I made at the Appomattox Peace celebration
hare for tbe striking of a memorial medal by con
grass is taking hold. When the oommtttee In charge
of the exercises here waited on me at the Inception
of their plan I gave them some helpful advice, mora
especially with reference to enlisting the co-operation
of the children In the public schools, which was
adopted and followed out On the day of the meeting
Captain C E. Adams called agala to urge me to be
personal! present, and the thought flashed upon me
during sur eonvereation that It would be quite appro
priate '.or the assemblage by resolution to call for
some ore last mementos of the fiftieth anniversary'
of tiie hletorln concluding act of our great civil war.
A little laterj Judga Fawcett, who had been selected
to preside, notified me that the subject had been
broached to him by Captain Adams, and that he
would call on me to present the resolution embodying
tha proposal, i which I hastily wrote, and which was
received with unanimous approval. But It bas not
stopped there-for alt the local Grand Army of the
Kepuollo posts have formally added their endorsement,
and a Grand Army of the Republic post In fian Fran
claoo bas taken similar action. And now the Nebraska
state Grand Army of the Republlo encampment has
re-adopted the original resolution, and the local
Grand. Army men who are Interested are bringing
tile matter te the attention of other state encamp
ment with a view finally to securing endorsement by
the national encampment Of course, nothing tangi
ble may yet, come out of It, but, Just the him, I
confidently bop to b the possessor of a Semi
centennial Appomattox Peace medal before another
Appomattox day rolls around.

One moment It blooms irks a garden
With every sweet blossom Ufa knows.
A vale of the peace of the age.
A pathway through violet and rose'
And then o'er the darkness and doubt
ing Th wings of a storm swept th sViea,
And the garden 1 toased In th tempest.
And the vale In a dark ruin lie.
One moment so pitiful, tender,
And then all the rage and the hat
Fill Ita beating with infinite shadow
As It raves against infinite fate.
One moment so tru and so loving,
So clinging and gentle and sweet.
All tbe song ot life sweeping Its gamut.
Every blossom of life ia it beat
Aad yet with all changing and travail, .
Ail sorrow and aching and cross.
All sunshine today, then tomorrow
Cast down in the grief of some loss; . )
And yet with Its battle aad thunder.
Ha April ot showers and of shine,

And take all the real that la mln1
