; Rabbi Stephen S. Wise of New
York swayed a great audience la the
Brsndels theater Thursday by the

- power Ol U ID Qiuiuouvv wmu r
allty. They felt la succession the
thrill of patriotic fervor, the hor
rors of war and butchery, the beau
ties of peace that ta now the hope of
the race. And In between, often and
liberally, was the scintillating wit
and almost-gxim drollery of the fin
ished humorist. .
On the stage during; the lecture ww
fifteen prominent dtlsens. inoludlns
'Jewish, Protestant and CethoUo clcray
men. Judges, businessmen and members
!ef the dty commlssion.
Ex8enator Norrts Brown presided and
'introduced the celebrated rabbi, who In
.a few moments had the audience wrtg-a-llna
with laughter at hie droll descrip
tion of his own delight at seeing the oltjr
'hall welcome" sln with his own name
"In letters as bla as myself."
"Is War Cureless?" was the title of Dr.
Wise's sddress. By logical steps he ar.
'rived at the conclusion that. war Is not
cureless, and reversed the old proveib
'by declarlnt that "what can't bs endured
'must he cured."
Mmm DlDlomarr . the Caase.
First taking- up the material losses and
" rfv.iUnn and destruction of . war, he
named secret diplomacy as wiw ini
'"Do you think for one moment," he
said, "that If the people of Europe had
.known what was going on In the chan
celleries of Europe In the time . from
Uuly X to August 1 of last year,, that
there would have been war?"
He eainted a picture, of the' horrible
Immoral standard set by .the '.'war- bride'
'provisions of churches and states in' the
wanina countries "whereby women are
reduced to mere breeding- machines and
In which one out of every five children
will be fatherless." "
He declared that the ; material tosses.
the lives and treasure sacrificed in the
war. the 150.000,000 a day these are but
'h smallest Dart of the devastation. "The
price that posterity will pay for the loss
lof the fittest and finest of the youth of
Europe, the regime of dlsgsnlce when the
'physically feeble, the immoral, the un
patriotic shsll bs the fathers of Mrs new
'feneration, here will corns tne most Hor
rible harvest of the war lust."
"The bectnnlnc of the end of war will
not come until the other haif let us
say the mother half cf the race has a
share In the governments."
Dropping Into drollery for a moment, he
declared: - -
"There are patriots of Senator" Brown's
party - who are willing for the sake, of!
militarism to go down to waarungron
and there live for four years as president
There are such,patriots.-I-say. and not
ralone in the republican party but . in at
least one other party, or perhaps tn three
parties, assuming for the sake of argu
ment that there are still three parties."
Tosrkf na T. R.
The belligerent utterances of T. R."
were reviewed with a t ranch ant sarcas
tic wit snd the doetrlno of military pre
paredness as a panacea for' war was
torn to pieces.
- "Why haven't we had a' war with Can
ada for a century?" he inquired. "Why,
the answer la very easy because we are
not ready fur a war. We have no army,
no forts on the border, no gunboats in
the great lakes.
"And we're not going to have a war
with Japan, either; that is, we need not
i have one. Of course, M can if we want

Will Vra-e Bond Ordinance.
Mayor Thomas Hoctor gave ci.t a
statement that he would endeavor to
have the city council pass a bond ordi
nance authorising $15,000 for parks. Ac
cording; to the mayor. Park Commis
sioner J.- B. Hummel has subscribed to
the idea in order to provide special im
provements for the South Omaha parks.
Some time ago Mr. Hummel told the
South Omaha Park board that he would
see to It that the necessary expense of
keeping up the parks .this summer wss
defrayed, but he advised against any spe
cial outlay. Commissioner Hummell Is
understood to have looked with favor on
the idea of getting an extra $15,000 to
spend on the South Omaha city parks.

x Bond laaae Offer.
Not yet Is the end of the 1203.000 bond
issue sought to be rushed through the
council some weeks ago, but which failed
when City Attorney Murphy refused to
approve the issue. Now comes an offer
from the bond salesman of Spltzer (k
Rorlck for 1168,000 for ths original $203,000. J
The difference is to be redeemed by City .
Treasurer Margin. The Issue Is frowned
upon by many because the bonds have yet ;
rive veara to run before they mature, !
I and under the new contract the refund-
Ing bonds would run for twenty years
without an option of redemption.
' For Hospital Benefl. t
BREEN TAKES OTHER VIEW
Addressing the Greater Omaha
charter committee last evening In the
city hall. City Attorney Rlne took the
position that It would he unwise at
this time to enter upon the task of
adopting a home rule charter, be
cause various Important rights
granted by the existing charter could
not be legally embodied In a home
Explaining his contention, he said: "It
is well understood that a home rule
charter cannot contravene the stats con
stitution, which confers oertain specific
rights' upon the state railway commission
and the legislature. Our present charter,
authorised by the legislature, contains
such rights ss allowing the health depart
ment to abate nuisance within ten miles
of the city, permitting the city to con
demn land within seventy-five miles of
the city for certain municipal purposes,
and there are othsr Important rights I
might mention. In the esse of the seven-for-a-quarter
street car suit now pending,
I would state that we would have to
abandon our present position In this esse
If a home rule charter should be adopted
at this time, for the reason that a city
cannot delegate to Itself the right to
regulate rates and service of publto
service corporations, and many courts
have held that opinion. It Is doubtful
whether a city can regulate Its looal
elections through a home rule charter."
Defer It a Year.
Mr. Rlne suggested that the wise wsy to
proceed would be to defer consideration
of a home rule charter until next year
and then elect a charter committee at
the same time the legislators are elected.
His next procedure would bs to have the
charter committee work with the legis
lators to the end that provisions which
cannot be embodied in the charter bs
made matters of legislation and put
through the next session.
"A charter should be explicit In all of
Its provisions and I would suggest that
any proposed home rule charter should
follow the present charter as closely as
poeslbls and then make changer at a
later time, as occasion may warrant."
continued the. city, attorney.
The speaker also ventarea to say that
he did not believe there are many serious
charter revisions needed at this time,
lie rsfsrred to H. U. J SI of the last legis
lature as including most of the pressing
needs of the olty at this time and he re
ferred to that charter amendment bill as
one of the most progressive measures of
the Isst legislature.
John Paul Preen took exceptions to the
position of the city attorney, by mantain
Ing that, granting that a horns rule
charter' is desirable at all. the time la
now ripe for a new charter. He said
there la a growing tendenoy among states
to confer upon cities the right to adopt
home rule charters and he said that msny
cities are taking advantage of that right
He read an article from a magsslne on
model home rule charters.
