Thought for the Day
Ssecf eef by Mr. Franc Smith

South Omaha, evidently was ready for annexation.
Still a little, abort of the 200,000 mark, but
watch ua crow.
June la making a very fair Mart, especially
as a month for weddings.
Dundee voter at least stuck to the senti
ments they had openly avowed.
Shirtsleeve diplomacy la a product of self-respecting-
democracy, and that Is why It Is so
little understood In Europe.
Now, let us make It Greater Omaha in fart
as well ss In name. It will take a little team
work, but that ought to come easy.
Messrs. Diets, Haverstlck and others who
worked so consistently and tirelessly to accom
plish the result are also entitled to warmest
! . LI !..;? . .. .
The Dee feels It really was a factor In bring
ing about the consolidation of Greater Omaha,
and Is especially gratified to find that it was on
the right side with so large a majority.
Saving money at the expense of the Janitors
end the charwomen Is another triumph for the
lata democratic congress. The longer Us record
Hands, the more fragrant it becomes.
Carranza, Villa & Co. may not be able to
read English, but' there's a quality In the presi
dent's note that will not escape their attention,
even Tthen It is done over lnto) mellifluous Cas
tdllan. '
The way for the electric lighting company
to prove the good faith It bas been professing Is
to heed The Bee's demand for a reduction of
rates to patfoha to the extent the company has
already indicated its willingness to go, not next
year, nor next month, but now. .
Blowing up a Nebraskan at home la quite
different from, blowing up the Nebraskan 4,000
miles away. As a local Industry the action puts
pep in the pastry. Foreign imitation ruffles
state pride and violates the law against adul
terated goods. It Is up to Premier Bryan to
vindicate bis state.
Lincolnltee profess to be wondering whether
- .William J. Bryan or "Brother Charley" Bryan
,wlll be a candidate In the election next year.
'Brother Charley" Bryan has Just accepted em
ployment as mayor of Lincoln for a terra of
three years, and It is our guess he will stay on
the Job the whole length of time.
Troubles multiply for the merry baggage
roan. Heretofore he lent, an unwilling ear to
the swears of travelers. Under the new law
effective June S he must put the swears In writ
ing, especially the value of baggage which th-i
owner Is required to sign. Thus by force of
law the aanctuary of trunks and things will be
profaned by tongue and pen.
Meeting Situation Firmly.
I President Wilson Is proceeding with a dlffl
j tult and delicate task In a spirit of deliberate
firmnem that Is most sssurlng. He bas been
suddenly confronted with an extremely critical
fituatlon in the relations between the I'nited
ftates and Germany, while the perplexity he has
endured in connection with the Mexican trouble
has been brought all at once to an acute stage.
These problems are grave In their every aspect,
and fraught with the Imminent possibility of
most serious consequences. Advices from Wash
ington, which are very likely anticipatory in
their expressions. Indicate that the president
and his advisers have practically determined on
the course to be followed.
Germany Is to be asked for a frank state
ment as to Its Intention with regard to the ob
servance of established international law. On
the reply to this question will turn the immedi
ate future of relations between tb two coun
tries. Mexico Is to be pacified. The bandit lead
ers down there will be advised to co-operate In
composing the situation In that country and will
be solemnly warned that their failure to agrej
will be followed by such action on the part of
th's country as will establish a stable and re
sponsible government for Mexico.
More than thla the president cannot do; less
than this would be short of his duty. His firm
ness in these critical dealings Is supported by
the deepest sentiment of his countrymen.
Greater Omaha Problem..
While the unification of Omaha and its
suburbs into Greater Omaha enlarges our oppor
tunities, it also Increases and complicates our
problems. The government of a city of more
than 1 75,000 Inhabitants must be on broad and
far-reaching lines. Its varloua activities must
be re-organized and re-systematized to answer
the larger requirements, and we must remember
that the population addition from South Omaha
makes the community more' cosmopolitan than
But It is not only In official and public af
fairs that the new elements must be taken Into
consideration, they should also be brought
Into closer relations with our commercial, civic,
religious, educational and social organizations.
While the geographical demarcation has noi
heretofore been strictly drawn, it baa oftaa been
used as an excuse for holding aloof or dupli
cating various machinery and work for which
no such excuse will from now on hold good. In
a word, all of our community activities should
be co-related. If not completely merged. There
are plenty of Greater Omaha problems ahead ot
us to be tackled and solved by intelligent plan
ning and well directed energy.

Must Deal with Lawlessness.
Attorney General need has discovered a
moBt startling condition of affairs in Loup
county, where a murderer Is permitted to go
rn tried by law, because the county commission
ers object to the expense of a trial. He also
charges that this astounding attitude of the
county officials Is tentatively, at least, sup
ported by the Judge of the district court, who
expresses doubt as to the effort to enforce the
law being of real service!
, If this were in some uncivilised country it
might not be wondered at. but that auch a con
dition can exist in as highly an enlightened a
commonwealth as Nebraska Is beyond under
standing. Governor Morehead should proceed without
delay, and with all the machinery of the law, to
establish order in Loup county, to see that per
sona guilty of crimea are brought to trial, and
that everything la done that needs to be done
to en a condition that Is Intolerable.

Can Europe Withstand
The Economic Strain?
XTsw York Xveainf a oat.
STF'.P by step along with the movements of tho
Klllrerent armies In ths field, there hss proceeded
an equally striking and equally unusual movement in
the financial position of the fighting nations. In some
r'spects. the accumulating perpleittl which surround
each, and whrh fairly baffle even expert prediction,
are rimllMr. The problem of the armies, conaldered
on the hypitheels of a protracted war. Is how long
the phjslcal capacity of the several belligerents, their
supply of able-bodied citizens, will lie able to maintain
a conflict marked by the present deetmctlvenese of
life. The unparalleled w-aafo of resotirce and wealth.
In maintaining the armies and conducing active
hostilities. rales the same q-iestlon 1n regard to na
tional resources of capital. It might, from one point
of view, be arsued that ths considerations aria ng from
the waate of life are moro formidable than those aris
ing from the waate of treasure, because the number of
soldiers available at the call of a fighting state la de..
terminable, where the total sum of capital subject to
its requisition Is not. But to this it will be answered
that the problem of keeping the ranks filled, even under
circumstances of prodlglotie loaa of life. Is fsmlllar to
military history, and that the problem of n-eetlng such
expenses as are belnp Incurred today Is new. Which
ever view of the matter Is correct. It Is certain that
the present flnsncial and economic aspect of the war
Is one of the utmost perplexity.
New York, as the financial capital of the greatest
neutral state. Is today tho real money center of the
world: therefore. It la tha rate of exchange at Nkw
Tork. on the various belligerent countries, whlcl
should messure. more accurately than anythlnr elsa.
the severity of Europe's economic strain. Asa mstter
of fact. New Tork exchange on all of those countries
stands today at an utterly abnormal discount. Tha
rates on london. Paris, Berlin, Vienna, Rome and 8t.
Petersburg, are In esch aa expressed In figures which
would be wholly Impossible In time of peace, unless
under conditions of momentary financial panic or of
currency depreciation.
Berlin exchange, which is now some U per cent
below the normal minimum, undoubtedly measures,
ss sn economic fact, a depreciated currency in Ger
many; Russian exchange on London, which stands at
a discount of 24 per cent, gives an apparently similar
indication for that country. It is at least debatable
whether the 4 per cent depreciation In French ex
change, and the 12 per cent deprec'atlon In the rate
on Italy, may not have Indicated similar, tough less
aggravated, conditions: at a'l events.' the cuirency li
those countries does not appear to be today redeemd
In gold.
Of exchange on Iondon, which ha Itself sold it
a discount of perhaps 14 per cent from normal figures,
no sdverse Inferences as to the British currency can
very well he drawn; thla for several reaaons. Unlike
the currency of the other Kuropean belligerents, the
Bsnk of England notes are today freely redeem -ahlo
In gold. Enrland, moreover, la the only
tlghtlnr state which Is regularly exporting- gold
to meet an adverse foreign balance. But beyond even
these considerations. It Is well known that the current
depreciation of Merllng exchange la due primarily, not
to tho pressure of London's own foreign obligations
but to the assumption by that market of the outside
burdens of Its allies.
All this, however, is only to state the problem net
to solve It. or to Indicate what later conditions It will
lead to. There ars two separate factors In the case,
each of which will hsve Its bearing on the outcome.
One haa to do with the attitude of the American mar
ket. Tills country Is for the present not only ths
banking center of the world, but by far tho largest
exporting state snd the largest creditor on current
International account. esterday's foreign trade ra
tuma for Aprl show an excess of merchandise ex
ports, during the four last months, of SSM.COO.OX)
wheress the largest excess In any previous eorreapon-l-Ing
period of our history wss SOOJ.OnO.nO; and to thl
in reckoning our market's International advantage,
trust bo added the saving of, sar. of re
mittances usually made In tha period to Americans
abroad, and the remittance, to New York, of very
large sum for safekeeping during war time.
In the normal machinery of International exchange,
such a position would always be adjusted either by
greatly Increased Import of foreign merchandise, or
by wholesale redemption of our own secvtrltles from
Europe, or by Urge advances of capital to the Euro
pean markets. Increased shipments of merchandise,
war-rtdden Europe cannot provide. Tt bas either ex
hausted Its available supply of American stocks and
bonds, or else the owners of such securities are cling
ing to them as 4he surest form of Investment at this
time Thei-a is left the recourse of lending great
sums of our own capital to Europe. In one from or
another whether through the granting of "credit
balances" or through purchase of government aecurl
tlea that Is the quite Inevitable result of the existing
The outcome of f nanclal Europe's home position
rest on other considerations. It is not easy to see
how some st Iraat of the fighting ststea, In ease of
a long war, can avoid relapse, for a good while to
come, Into a currency of Irredeemable and depreciated
paper. There hss been soma Idle talk of "repudiation"
by those governments a phrsse whose meaning has
apparently not been clear, even to thoaa who uaed it;
and Wall street has caught tip the notion. In some
vaua conjecture as to whether the "war orders" and
the grain exports will be paid for. The answer, it
answer to such a question should he needed. Is thst
payment for the shipments is provided for when the
orders are placed, snu Is made In cash by Amerlcsn
banssrs when the goods are shipped.
All this la apart trom the larger problem how tho
machinery of Bi ropran finance ran bear the enormous
burden of the war exivndtture, at a time when, ex
cept for the I'nited states and HoRsnd. every Im
portant financ al nation of the worm la entangled In
the war. At present aa In the twelve eara of the
Napoleonic conflict. End .nd Is largely sustaining Its
elites; and England's rese rve resource, now aa then,
are enormous. The problem aa tt appl'ea to Germany
Is apparently one of astonishingly expert use of Inter
lacing credit, whose longer scope of operation it Is
not easy to pted rt.

People and Events
The newspaper fraternity haa not taken
everythfhg In sight In Kansss, but baa
sequeatered a large Juicy slice. Governor
Capper is a newspsper publisher. Jay E.
Houae. one of Capper's desk goen. bes
been elected mayor of Topeka. Mayor
House won handily In a field of four oa
the platform of opposition to women In
politics. The women gave him a fierce
run for the Job, making a house-to-houee
csnvass sgalnst him. One of his first
acts on becoming mayor was to fire four
police women. "Women will be used at
the police station," says tho mayor, "but
1 am not going to have them patrollag
the streets, where their chief employment
hss been sticking their noses Into their
neighbors' business." Why, Jsy, you
moan thing!
Rev. Leslie W. Bprague of the Welling
ton Avenue Congregational church and
Rev. William C. Shaw, rector of St.
Peter's Episcopal church, two Chicago
pastors, have resigned their charges for
the purpose of taking a rest and seeking
less Important fields of labor. Both say
they are fagged out and that the fruits
of their labors Is not proportioned to the
energy expended. Lack of co-operation
between pastors and people is the prin
cipal complaint. "Chicago people," says
Pr. Sprsgue, "make a pretense of being
exceedingly busy. If you ask them to
undertake any task In the church they
haven't the time. But If a circus should
pitch Its tent In the neighborhood, every
body would be foot free. I don't knew
any city where cnndltloens are eo hard
as they are here."
Condensed Pointers
Real repentance Is seldom of the fog
horn variety.
The third party leader should always

The man who has never been tempted
deserves no credit for virtue.
It is human nature to fawn upon our
superiors and kick inferiors.
There Is nothing like the verdict of a
Jury to demonstrate that things are not

When asked for an opinion. It la better
to gueaa how young a woman Is not than
how old aha Is.
Exsmtnation generally proves that
there are a lot of spikes concealed in the
other men's soft Job.
Anyhow, the old maid csn derive satis

slaving to support a lasy husbsnd.
As a rule the people who detlve ths
