Not a Partiian Triumph.
While all good citizens will rejoice In the
notable diplomatic victory apparently achieved
by the United States In Its dealings with the
European belligerents, and none will detract
from the great good wrought by the president,
it Is not by any mean a partisan triumph. All
the people of tbe country have stood unitedly
by the president and upheld bis hands through
out the crisis. If he has bad tbe criticism, and
perhaps the opposition, of the radicals on one
side, he baa had also to deal with the extremists
on tbe other. No more notable example of this
liosslbly could be presented than that afforded
by the late secretary of state, who resigned at
the most trying moment of the tense situation,
riving as his reason that he was not In accord
with the president's views, and could not allow
Li name to be signed to the note that haa
brought the desired result. Try aa they may,
I he democrats will have some difficulty in mak
ing a party triumph out of these international
Paacual Orozco'i Ending.
A border tragedy, Just enacted in the moun
tains of southwestern Texas, Is not entirely with
out significant Interest for any who car to glv
It a moment's attention. A former general of
tbe army of liberation in Mexico has Just been
shot to death as a bandit while resisting arrest
by a posse under the sheriff of the county. This
Is a most remarkable Illustration of the transi
tory nature of glory at the best, and particularly
that which has sprung from the anarchy Into
which Orozco and bis kind have plunged Mexico.
I'ascual Orozco was really a man of ability, and
In the beginning be seemed to be heartily de
voted to the cause of political reform for bis
country. It waa he who put "Pancbo" Villa
into the service from which the ex-jail bird
graduated with others Into the business of brig
andage on a magnificent scale. Orozco waa
Madero's leader in the north, and gave his tal
ents to the support of the cause that triumphed.
Later h deserted to the side of the man who
destroyed Madero and robbed the country of Its
chance for peace. With Huwta'a flight, Orosco
set up as an Independent bandit, and soon found
himself harassed by forces . stronger than bis
own, to the end that bis venture was turned to
failure, and disgraceful death haa overtaken
htm. Ha was a fine example of the men who
have distracted Mexico under the pretense of
patriotism, but not strong enough to stand
among them on his own feet, for the very
reason, perhaps, that he waa more of a man and
less of a brute than some who have succeeded.
Democrats and the State Trewury.
The misdirected zeal of the democrats to
establish for themselve a record for economy
has resulted in a situation that is both embar
rassing and costly for Nebraska. No amount
of scolding by Governor Morehead, or calling of
names by lesser lights of the party, will alter
the facts or relieve the condition Into which th
incompetency of the democrats have plunged
tbe state government. Th record Is plain, and
th result is seen in th option of discontinuing
th activities of on of the most Important bur
eaus of tha state administration, or culling an
xtra session of tbe legislature.
The lata legislature waa controlled in both
branches by the unterrified followers of th ex
secretary and the senator. They had charg of
th appropriations, and for thre
s'at waa scandalized by the wrangling between
house and senate committees, and th rouddl
that resulted from those disputes is JuBt com
ing to be fully appreciated by th peopl. Th

The attempt to persuade the School board to
countenance and authorize a "Billy" Sunday re
vival meeting In th High school is a good pub
licity stunt, but it ought to stop there. Section
11 of article 8, of th constitution of Nebraska
reads as follows:
No eectartaa Instruction shall be allowed In a
school or lnatltutloa awpported In whole or In part oy

That ought to setUa It right off the bat with

The Whitefield Eevivals
Seajaaala rraaklU's Aatobiograpby.
T N 17, arrived amonit us from Ireland Ray. Mr.
1 w niterifld., who had made hi ma If remarkable
there aa an Itinerant preacher. He waa at frit
permitted to preach In some of our churehea: but the
clergy taking a to him, aoon refused him their
puiplts, and he waa obliged to preach In the field.
The multitudes of all eeota and denominations that at
tended hla arrmona were enormous, and It waa a mat
ter or speculation to me, who waa one of the number.
to oheerve tha extraordinary influence of hla oratory
on ma nearera, and how much they admired an 1
respected Mm, notwithstanding hia common abuse of
them, by assuring them they were naturally half
beasts and half devils. It was wonderful to aee the
change aoon in the manners of our Inhabitants. From
being thoughtleee or Indifferent about religion. It
seemed aa if all the world were srowlng religious, so
mat one Could not walk through the town In an even
Ing without hearing pealms sung In different families
of every street.
Ana it reing found Inconvenient to assemble In
the open air, subject to Its inclemencies, the building
of a house to meet In waa no sooner proposed, and
peraone appointed to receive contributions, than auf-
flclent sums were aoon received to procure tha around
and erect tha building, which waa 100 feet long and 70
broad, and tba work waa carried on with such spirit
as to oa finished In a much shorter time than coiill
have been expected. Both house and ground were
vested In truataea. expressly for the use of any
preacher of any rellgloua pei suasion who might desire
to say something to tho people at Philadelphia, tha
oesign in building being not to accommodate any par
tlcular sect, but the inhabitants In general; so that
even If the mufti of Constantinople were to aend a
missionary to preach Mohammedanism to ua, ha
would find a pulpit at hla service.
Mr. Whitefield. on leaving ua, went preaching all
tha way through tha colonlea to Georgia. The settle
ment of that province had been lately begun, but In
stead of being made with hardy. Industrious husband
men aeouatomed to labor, tba only people fit for audi
an enterprise. It waa with famlllea or broken shop,
keepers and other Insolvent debtors; many of lndulunt
and Idle habits, taken out of tha Jails, who, being set
down In tha woods, unqualified for clearing Jand and
unable to endura tha haxdahipa of a new settlement,
perished In numbera, leaving many helpless children
unprovided for. Tba sight of their miserable aituaUon
Insplrad th benevolent heart of Mr. Whitefield with
tha Idea of building an orphan house there. In which
they might be supported and educated. Returning
northward, ha preached up thla charity and made
large collectlona; tor hla eloquence had a wonderful
power over th hearts and purees of hla hearers, of
which I myself was an Inatanoa.
I did not disapprove of the design, but as Georgia
was then destitute of materials and workmen and It
waa propoaed to send them from Philadelphia at a
great expense, I thought It would have been better to
have built tbe house at Philadelphia and brought tho
children to It This I advised; but he waa resolute In
his first project, rejected my counsel, and I therefore
refused to contribute. I happened aoon after to attend
one of hla sermons. In th course of which I perceived
he Intended to finish with a collection, and I silently
resolved that he should get nothing from me. I had
in my pocket a handful of oopper money, three or four
silver dollars, and five pistoles In gold. As he pro
reeded I began to soften and concluded to give tho
copper. Another atroke of hla oratory made me
ashamed of that and determined me to give tha silver;
and he finished ao admirably that I emptied my
pocket wholly Into tbe collector's dish, gold and alL
At thla sermon ther waa alao on of our club who,
being of my sentiments respecting th building In
Oeorgia and suspecting a collection might be intended,
had by precaution emptied hia pockets before ha came
from home. Toward tha concluaion of the discourse,
however, be felt a strong Inclination to give, and ap
plied to a neighbor who atood near him to lend him
soma money for th purpose. Tha request waa fortu
nately made to parhapa th only man In tha company
who had th firmness not to be affected by the
preacher. Mis answer waa, "At any other tlmo,
Friend Hopklnson. I would lend to thee freely, but
not now, for the seems to be out of thy right aenaes."
Bom of Mr. Whltefleld's enemies affected to sup.
pose that h would spply these collectlona to hla own
private emolument: but I. whn waa inima.i -
qualnted with him, being employed In printing hla
ennun ana journals, never nad the leaat suspicion of
his Integrity, but am to thla day decidedly of opinion
that he waa In all hla conduct a Darfeetlv hnnut
and methlnka my testimony In bis favor ought to have
tha more weight, aa wa had no rellgloue connection.
H uaed, Indeed, sometimes to pray for my conver
sion, but ha nerer had tha satisfaction of believing
mai ma prayers were heard. Oura waa a mere civil
friendship, sincere on both sides, and l.ti .

It was not for Christ's sake, but for your aaka." One
of our common acqualntanoe Jocosely remarked that
knowing It to b the custom of tha saints when they
received any favor to shift the burden of th obliga
tion from off their own ahouldera and place it In
neaven. i naa contrived to fix It on earth.
Tha laat time I aaw Mr. Whitefield waa In London,
wnero na conauitea me about hla orphan house con
cern and hla purpoae of appropriating it to the estab
lishment of a college.
He had a loud and clear voice, and articulated his
words ao perfectly that he might be heard and under
stood at a great distance, especially aa hla auditors
obaerved tha moat perfect silence. Ha preached one
evening from tha top of th court house steps, which
ara In tha middle of Market etreet and on tho weat
aide of Second street, which croaaea It at right angka
Both streeta wera filled with hla hearers to a conald
erable distance. Being among tha hlndmoat In Market
atreet. I had tha curloalty to learn how far ha could
be heard by retiring backward down the atreet to wart
tha river; and I found hla voice distinct till I came
near Front atreet, when some nolaa In that atreet
obscured It. Imagining then a semicircle, of which
my dlatanca would be tha radiua, and that It was
filled with auditors, to each of whom I allowed two
aqua re feet. I computed that ha might well be heard
by mora than W.000. Thla reconciled me to the news
paper accounts of hla having preached to Sf.OjO people
In tha flelda. and to tha hUtory of generals harnngulng
whole armlea, of which I had sometimes doubted.
By hearing him often I came to distinguish easily
between eermona newly composed and thoae which ha
had often preached tn the oouree of hla travels. Hia
delivery of tha latter waa ao Improved by frequent
repetition that every accent, every emphasis, every
modulation of voice, waa ao perfectly well turned and
well placed that without being lntereeted In th sub
ject one could not help being pleased with tha dla
course: a pleasure of much tha aame kind with that
received from an excellent piece of muaic. Thla la an
advantage Itinerant preachers have over thoae who
are alallonary. as the latter cannot well Improve their
delivery of a eermon by ao many rehearsala.
Ills writing and printing from time to time gave
great advantage to hla enemlea; unguarded expres
sions, and even orroneoua opinions, delivered tn
preachlnjt might have been afterward explained or
qualified by supposing others that might hav ac
companied tham; or they might have been denied; but
llterm acripta manet. Critics attacked hla writings
violently, and with ao much appearance of reason aa
to jlmlnlh the number of hla votaries and prevent
their Increase. Fo that I am eattafted that If ha bad
never written anything he would have left behlad
him a much more numerous and Important sect; and
hla reputation might In that raaa have baea still
crowing even after hla death, as there being nothing
of hia writing on which to found a censure and give
him a lower character, hia proselytes would be left at
llbeity to attribute to him aa great a variety of ex
cellences aa their enthusiastic admiration might wish
him to have possessed.
'that Tralalasj School Problem.
OMAHA. Aug. Sl.-To the Editor of Tha
Hee: I have read with much Interest
your viewa aa well aa those of members
of the school board on the very vital
question of the abolishment of our train
ing school for Omaha girl graduates
While on this, as on other questions,
great minds differ. In this contro
versy I am confident there exists an hon
est and unselfish difference of opinion.
In giving my opinion I give It not from
a theoretic standpoint, but from per
sonal knowledge gained from auuftl re
sults, reeailts which speak for themselves,
aa la evidenced by the satisfactory work
being done by the young women now
teaching In our public schools who have
graduated from our present training
school.. There having been no fault
found or complaints made either by tha
principals of the schools, tha parents or
the scholars, aa to the competency of
these young teachers, then why this sud
den demand for the abolishment of thla
Is It not reasonable to presume that
the graduatea of our high school or other
schools of like grades should be capable
of teaching In any of the graded schools
thrmigh which they have passoxl, this In
addition to their two years actual train
Ing as teachers in the various grades?
Are the opponents of this school Imbued
with the ssme Idea that once obtained
in tha union Pacific shops, where a
young man who had served his appren
ticeship tn any mechanical calling was
requested to leavo that department for
a year, learn new Ideas In other shops,
It made no difference where, and at the
end of the year he could return and draw
a mechanic's wages. In many lnstancea
knowing lens when he returned than
when he departed. The fact being con
ceded that their work as teachers hai
proven satisfactory, why put many par
ents poorly circumstanced to an unneces
sary expense in sending their daughters
away for a training, the possession of
which gives them no additional qualifi
cations to teach? Thla could be Instanced
In my own case, aa I have a daughter, a
graduate from this training school, now
a teacher in one of our public schools and
against whom no complaint haa ever
been lodged, and she is making good. Had
I been forced to the painful necessity
of sending her to Teru or a similar school.
It would bav been beyond my financial
ability so to do. Aa In my case, so in
tha case of many othera whose daughters
are now teaching In our schools, as well
aa many othera in like circumstances who
have economised with the view and pur
pose of having their daughters become
teachers through our training achool
I would sincerely regret that our Omaha
girls be deprived of thla school, girts
whoso parenta willingly pay their share
of the taxes to support our schools and
that outsiders with no .greater qualifica
tions be selected in their stead. I take
great pride In our public schools, and In
my loyalty to them I yield to no man.
As proof to that statement I point to the
fact that my children have all graduated
from th Omaha grade schools, one now
In tha high achool and another In the
Commercial High.
I ask the School board to let that school
alone, ss It is the poor man's hope.
Opposed to Conamlsalon Form.
80UTH SIDK. OMAHA. Sept. 1-To the
Editor of Tha Bee: Prom what I ran
learn and see the commission form of city
government Is a very expensive luxury.
From Information I can gather there are
too many offices and a great many of
the officials are paid salaries far In ex
cess of what they could earn In their
private occupations. It would be much
better. In my Judgment, If we would go
back to tha old form and elect men to
the city council by wards, so that every
part of tha city may hav soma repre-
A commission of level-headed business
men and fair representatives of the labor
organizations ought to be appointed to
thoroughly overhaul city affaire and cut
down unnecessary offices and cut tha
aalarles where It ought to be dona In their
Judgment. Hav no politicians on the
commission of Investigation. Hav them
cut down city expenses at every point
that will not cripple the management of
city affairs, but which will be for the
benefit of the taxpayers.
There Is no good reaaon why ao many
of th city official and their ap
pointees should be supplied with auto
mobiles. The salaries of most of them
are far In excess of what the average
taxpayera can earn and for that reason
most of them could afford to buy their
own automobiles.
If an election should be called today
It la my opinion that the commission form
of government would be voted out of ex
istence. Let us get rid of the luxurious
form of government, get down to busi
ness principles and run the city on an
economical basis. r. A. AQNEW.

Opportunity for
Sales Executive
I want a man who has a lot of selllog ability and
some money to take a heavy interest in my manufac
turing business with full direction of sales.
Products are staple food articles and provide y ear
around business. The sales field Is greater than wa
can fill for years. Freight rates are so materially to
our advantage that we can underprlce every competi
tor If necessary .
My reputation as an expert in my line Is nation
wide. My goods are admitted to be the very best.
I am handicapped because I must at present divide
my time between manufacturing and selling; also be
cause of lack of capital to fill big orders offered me,
which necessitates my refusing a big line of attract
ive, well-rated business.
Tbe man for this place must be able to produce
$15,000 or more to invest, which is not much for the
type of man I seek; it is little Indeed compared to the
volume of business w can turn out with this much
additional capital.
Quick action is absolutely essential, as I have other
plans which may mature any day, thus eliminating thla
opportunity for you.
