Ifebrtika "Weather for the World.
If the establishment ,of the main weather
bureau investigating station at Omaha is to
have the effect of giving the world a chare of
Omaha's salubrious climate It will confer a boon
on suffering humanity, compelled to exist in
less favored spots, such as Kansas City, where
the trade winds never strike; Sioux City, where
they veer to the east. In one torrldlty Is the
normal state of life, and in the other humidity.
Omaha' situation Is a happy medium between
the two, with the blessings of both and the. evil
of neither. Denver, frcm its mlle-hlgh alti
tude, pretendsto patronise Omaha, because of
Its lack of elevation, and Seattle, its feet bathed
In the dark waters of Puget sound, says we are
too high up to have the real thing In the way
of climate. Loh Angeles talks of Its sunshine,
and Minneapolis of its osone, and other cities
set forth claims to some especially desirable
quality of,cllmat1c condition, and rest happy In
enjoyment of a single advantage.
But Omaha, blensed beyond Its rivals, pos
ees a climate that Is a happy blending of all
the good qualities the others boast themselves
of, while its only drawback comes with the
thought that everybody doesn't live here to
enjoy It. We have the elevation that gives the
joy of being up, without danger of nervous pros
tration or heart failure; nowhere does the sun
fchlne flood a lovely landscape more lavishly
v Ith golden light; nowhere are bluer skies more
opulent In the lovely star-studded diadem of the
night; nowhere does oxone impart more Inspir
ing teal to blood rushing through lungs ex
panded by glorious draughts of dustless air, and
nowhere is life more of one unending song of
exuberant activity than in Omaha.
The weather bureau has chosen well Its spot
to observe what makes for perfect weather.
Understanding- Means Peace.
Anticipation of the reply from the imperial
German government to tle American rejoinder
will not now be attempted, because of the un
vi adorn of speculating on so grave a question.
However, the tone of expressions from influen
tial Germans Justifies the belief that an impor
tant section of the German people earnestly
eks to preserve friendly relations with the
United States. Agitators in both countries ate
busily fomenting occasion for bitterness, If not
for actual strife, but It Is quite likely the sober
good sense of the two great nations will prevail.
It is reasonable to think the kaiser will recog
nise the serious aapect of the situation, and that
his reply will be such as will clearly Indicate
the German purpose. As the issue is better
understood, and the real sentiment of the cltl
sens of both countries is more fully expressed,
the outlook for a peaceable adjustment of exist
ing differences becomes more favorable. '
A Triumph for Reason in Strike Settlement.
The. resort to arbitration in the Chicago
street railway strike, and the resumption of
service ' pending negotiations, is a belated
recognition of a principle that should have been
applied with the first move. Obduracy manifest
on both 'sides of the controversy brought mat
ters to a temporary interruption of service, and
consequent inconvenience to the public, the
great silent partner In all such enterprises. The
early restoration of conditions . to normal is
something to the credit of both employers and
men, for It shows that when reason gets a hear
ing, strife takes a back seat. The case on
either side would have been as strong if the
matters in dispute had been submitted to a
board of arbitrators at the beginning.
Resort to arbitration la always In order for
the adjustment of disputes, and especially' when
the public is so concerned, as In the instance of
street railway traffic. In connection with this
much of stress has been laid In urging compul
sory arbitration, a course that has been tried and
that baa not proved always satisfactory or serv
iceable. Settlement of labor disputes, whether
Involving wages or other factors of employment,
should bevby conciliation or by arbitration
mutually agreed upon. The side that "has
nothing to arbitrate" usually la wrong, and
rellee. nponv force to accomplish something that
will not stand the scrutiny of Justice.
Anyone Here Seen Kelleyf
Our amiable democratic contemporary puts
In k plea In, avoidance of the charge that Mr.
Pryan Is a spoilsman by citing his last official
act in protecting the appointment to a consular
position of a certain "Mr. Kelley of Lincoln,"
whom I the W.-H. denominates "a brand-blow-In-the-bottle
republican" who has kept demo
crats busy defending their party against Kel
ley's "adroit, clever and sinful attacks." Now
may possibly have met Mr. Kelley; but In all
cur familiarity with republican politics in
Nebraska for a quarter of a century we never
heard of him on the firing line for any repub
lican ticket. If be Is a republican we may be
sure, from the fact that he la picked for special
fa voi by Mr. Bryan (If that be a fact), he must
be the kind that has more coming to him from
the democrat: than from his own party. - Rest
assured that no atand-up-and-be-counted repub
lican has had appointive recognition from any
part of the democratic administration that could
be given to a democrat or assistant democrat.

Centennial of Waterloo
KB hundred years ao, Jnne IS, WIS, waa fought

Waterloo haa become the world synonym for defeat
and Oleaster. The battle which Immortalized the
name would today be regarded as lnalgnlflrnt from
the viewpoint of numbere. Where millions now give
battle, then the total barely reached 100.000. Napoleon
brought to Waterloo approximately 74.000 men. The
Anglo-allied army under Wellington numbered 100.'e

There waa a aound of revelry by night.
And Belgium's capital had gathered then

when the Iron Duke waa appriaed of Napoleon's ap
proach. Only the boldneea of his aubordtnatea, among
them Prince Bernard, aaved Quatre Bras to the alllea.
Napoleon's letter to Marshal Ney, written at
C'harlerol at I o'clock on the morning; of the lth, set
forth his strategy. "I have adopted." he wrote, "aa
the general principle for this campaign to divide my
army Into two wlnra and a reserve. . . . The Guard
will form tha reserve, and I shall bring It Into action
on either wing Just aa circumstances dictate. . .
According to drcumatances. I shall weaken one wing

Blucher on the other flank at Ugly had been beaten
by tha emperor, but not destroyed, as was so neces

Napoleon had planned to begin the attack early on
the morning of the lth, but fata waa asainat him hi a
heavy downpour of rain. The horaea floundered In
the mud and It was Impoaelble to get the artillery in

The afternoon was half gone. Looking; toward

Mllhaud's culraaalera were to carry tha summit of

To those wno were not there, will state
that practically every auto In Malvern

OMAHA, June 17.-To the Editor of Tha
Bee: "May blessings rest upon the head
of Cadmus, the Phoenicians, or whoever
It waa that Invented books." This trib
ute, which comes from the Niagara Falls
of literature, Thomas Carlyle, came to
the writer's mind as he looked upon the
Omaha Public library. The outaide of
the building la adorned with the names
of men of letters who make up the Val
halla of printed thoughts. In front, and
high up near the roof, are busts of pe
mosthenee, Aristotle, Bocrates, Sopho
cles, Homer, fctcero, Caeaar and Virgil.
The wlndowa are named In honor of
men whoae works have enlightened the
mind: Schiller, Goethe, Dante, Chaucer,
Shakespeare. Milton, Tarao, Racine and
Cornell le. On the side of this temple
of Mlnorva are busts of Hoi ace, Plato,
fleneca. Herodotus and Plutarch.: while
the windows recall America's contribu
tion to literature: Longfellow, Haw
thorne, Emerson and Irving.
As a young man. tfpon beholding a
maiden, InaUntly concludes that what
ever Is delicate Is delicious, so the
writer, after viewing tha Omaha Library
building, decided to go Inside and taate
whatever mental ware It might offer.
And, as a result, he found a new friend.
