Fifty Year After.
Twenty thousand vrtersn of the army of
Grant, marched In review before the prpMdent at
Wttfthir.Ktoa yesterday, trudging along with tot
tering slops over the route their young feet had
covered with prlngy stride In the morning of
their sturdy youth. When President Johnson
reviewed the veteran, 160.000 men, sunburned,
tanned, luty and vigorous, filled Pennsylvania
avenue with surh a stream of virile life as It
rever had peen and may never again see. It
was the Graud Army of the Republic, Just fin
ished with Its fighting on the field of battle, and
ready to take up tha conquest of life. Some of
triem looked back on campaigns from Bull Run
to Appomatox, from 'fil to '65, full of the action
that brought a nation out of the depths of war,
and looking forward with clear eyes to a future
rreat beyond the dreams of any. They dropped
the muskets after that march down Pennsylvania
avenue, and took up the tools of peace. States
have been erected, cities built, civilization In all
Its wondrous progress has been established since
then, and these men have had their full share
In the magnificent work. Only 20,000 of them
marched up Pennsylvania avenue in this review,
while all that are left of the men who fought
nnder Old Glory in those dark years scarcely
nvmber more than marched before President
Johnson, but these few are the grand Army of
the Republic, and will so remain while this gov
ernment and Its institutions endure.
Just What it Was All About.
Now we know what all this fuss and flurry
over the floating of the Anglo-French $500,000,
000 loan was about. Tbe terms upon which tbe
bondii are to be offered to the syndicate and
underwriters and to the public make it so plain
that any school boy can figure it. The bankers
who are In on tbe deal are to have tbe bonds at
96, and to offer them at 98 In other words,
they are to have two per cent commission for
flotation. The particular banks to share in the
underwriting group are to have their Invita
tions from the head of the house of Morgan,
although it is not disclosed whether or not a
e pedal additional commission Is to be paid for
that service. On the $500,000,000 the two per
cent amounta to $10,000,000, which Is some
thing worth fighting for, and for which the fight
would have been Just as keen whether the-money
was to be loaned to the allies or to the Teutons.

, What Will Rockefeller Dot
The full significance of the visit of John D.
Kockefcller, Jr., to Colorado can not be deter
mined until his final Judgment Is pronounced
and his action taken. Mr. Rockefeller la now en
gaged in summing up his experience and obser
vations, and haa promised he will see what can
te done for the improvement of industrial con
ditions out there. His visit has been variously
interpreted, some of his critics flippantly com
paring it to the tour of a feudal lord to receive
and enjoy the homage of his vassals and bond
serfs. Why not give him the benefit of any
doubt that may exist and concede that he is sin
cere In his professions of desire to be of service?
He has it In his own hands to do much good,
and, with first hand knowledge of the situation,
he may find means to bring about changes that
wtll be of great value to those directly affected.
He hasn't gone deeply into things in his short
visit, and has been and still is in the hands, of
men who represent the Rockefeller interests
there, but he hss in otbor ways shown a ten
dency to practical methods in his philanthropic
efforts, consequently it la not unreasonable to
look for some genuine good to come from this
inquiry. , Mr. Rockefeller has now a great op
portunity, and will shortly let the world know
it he Intends to work any considerable change in
existing conditions.
Mudge and the Bock Island.
The resignation of Henry U. Mudge as Joint
receiver with Judge Dickerson for the Rock
Inland system clears the way for the suits that
are to be brought by the receivers against the
directors of the defaulting company. While
Mr. Mudge Is not responsible for the conditions
that necessitate the suits, being a director In
the one company that Is not Involved in the
stock manipulations complained of, he felt a
natural delicacy as to his position when called
iipon to appear as plaintiff against his former
associates, ma resignation therefore removes
any embarrassment the government might have
met in this respect. Mr. Mudge may be retained
as operating executive of the system, although
rumor connects his name with the place of Dreei-
flcnt of another great and successful railroad. He
haa high rank among railroad men and his ac
tion In this affair indicates the high quality of
his honesty, which has been proven In other
ways, along with his executive sblllty. The
straightening out of the tangled affairs of the
Rock Island is proceeding apace, and the own
ers of the road may yet have back their property
in serviceable condition.
The first and most difficult lesson taught in
five days to the 452 men comprising the volun
teer army in training at Camp Sheridan was
ooeaierice to military rules and orders." The
difficulty of learning it proved more imaginary
than real. Obedlenoe in tha nillltnrv unu
means system, unity, co-operation in workaday
life and the addition of one to the other makes
for greater efficiency In life's battle.
Why not be frank about It? Sending food
to the belligerent countries, loaning them money,
wiling them war munitions, furnishing them
hospitals and hospital supplies, or helping to re
lieve nomeless war victims each is only one
way by which we share the burden of the fight
to tbe extent we take It off of the countries at
war, and thus enable them to keep up the fight
That American schemers are responsible for
some of tbe trouble on the Mexican border is a
matter of common knowledge. Several persona
at Los Angeles and San Dlcgo are under indict
ment for conspiring against the peace of Mexico,
Lack of these movements, usually well covered,
is the definite purpose of provoking war by
which the schemers might profit through owner,
ship of Mexican property.

One key to her success, that enables her to bind

Aimed at Omaha
Bhelton Clipper: If Billy Hunday does not succeed
in converting the sinners of Omaha It will not be the
fault of the newspapers In the Nebraska metropolis.
They are giving- the acrobatic evangelist every assist
ance possible to his sermons and "hot shots."
Culhertson Banner: There are slight hopes for the
Omaha papera If anything they give Sunday Billy
a little more space than they used to devote to Canada
Bill, Prank and Jesse James.
Kearney Hub: The Omaha Bee declares that the
"short ballot" Is ripening very fast It sure Is. Aa
a matter of fact It Is Just a little overripe. Of course,
we will not offend delicate sensibilities by declarintr
that It Is really rotten.
Bloomtngton Advocate: The Omaha papers are to
be commended for the excellent manner In which they
are handling this feature.
Silver Creek Band: It Is to be hoped that within
Ihe next couple of weeks the Omaha papers will be
worth reading. "Billy" Sundays rot Is disgusting and
people who pay their money In advance for the paper
are entitled to a financial rebate.
Columbua Telegram: Nebraska's two best preach
ers are Ak-8ar-Ben and the State Fair. .Ak-tfar-Ucn.
being a purely commercial Institution, cannot of
course, be favored with an appropriation of money
from the state treasury, but Ak-Sar-Ben should re
ceive a very large appropriation from the. people's
treasury of good will and personal patronage, becauso
he,fct,that always so splendidly advertises this
agricultural commonwealth to the nation and to tho
world. The Telegram hopea and believes that In due
time Ak-Sar-Ben', annual fall featlval will be to
Omaha and Nebraska what the mardl-grae festivities
are to -New Orleans. It can be done. The spirit of
Omaha, as breathed through the men of Ak-Sar-Ben
can accomplish anything.

spiritual side of life goes unmeasured be
cause the field Is too large. Them are

gospel assists In building spiritually,

The dope fiend appears next, who passed

money other than by means of the sweat

Two yuung men lined up next classed

AURORA. Nab.. Sept. .-To the Editor
of The Bee: In your Issue of September
24, Mr. J. Braxton Oarland gave forth
expressions of admiration for Evangel
ist Sunday. Tha preponderance of the
personal pronoun "I" categorised the
statements as expressions of egoism. Mr.
Sunday deserves sympathy in his her
caileaa task of cleansing the pulpit of
larwinism. Ciceronian ethics. higher
critic lam and social cant. These are of
the themes that locked hell and flung the
key away. If In unravelling the Saviour
from mythology and bringing Him alive
among Ills own, placing Him on his
proper pedestal, Mr. Sunday haa used
forceful language the chronic i'ur ef hla
patients induced chiefly by rellgloua
quackery Justify him.
Mr. Uarland bestows more admiration
because neither creed nor doctrine, aa
expounded by Mr. Sunday "conflicts
with the sovereignty of the state." If
be means the state in Us own sphere Is
sovereign, then he expresses a truism.
If he means revelation Is subject and
secondary to the atate, then he con
flicts with Christ who Commands that

In summer rtlence by the vine-clad ioor;
In busy throngs and haunts of teeming
In gentle moments where no shadows
In light and dark, in dusk and dawn for
When morning breaks, when twilight
haunts the sky
I think of thee.
I think of thee
When round me thunders rattle.
When I stand forth to face and fight
the battle;
In hours of rest. In Journey or in playing.
In moments filled with fancies gently
In hope. In trust In courage, dread and
In deep. In dreams when star by star
goes out
I think of thee.

Eveiry Woman Cares
. Every woman wants
luscious oat food, and
wants it rightly cooked.
Those who don't get it
do not know the way.
The way is this: Ask
forQuakerOats. These
flakes are made of
queen grains only.
Two-thirds of each
bushel is discarded as
unfit. Yet, at most
stores, this extra qual
ity costs no extra price.
Then get this Ouaker Cooker to brine
out the flavor in full. Most grocers have
it now on show. Go see it, then tee our
offers in each package. -
Tbese things mean a royal dish, a
finer oat dish than yon dream of till you
try it. From now on, for your own sake,
serve it in your home.
