One Trouble With Eate Making-.
The Nebraska rase now before tha Inter
state Commerce commission Is fairly Illustrative
rf one of the difficulties encountered In the fix
lug of railroad rates, Incident to the activity of
dusl bodies clothed with the same power. An
crder from the state commission has fixed a
rate on tntrsstate shipments thst Is quit favor
able to shippers within the state, while the fed
eral body has fixed another rate to rover Inter
state shipments thst puts outside shippers at
a dlssdvantaite. The confusion that arises from
this Is obvious, and the attack made on the Ne
braska rate by the outsiders Is but natural. So
long as the rate making power Is thus divided
and exercised without regard of one body for
the other, these dlscrepsncles will exist, and
somebody must suffer. The question Is not the
right of the federal or the state commissions,
tut of their coming Into something of harmony,
to the end that commerce will not be disturbed
by the multiplication and confusion tf freight
tariff schedules. Some way ought to be found
tnat would reach a more reasonable basis for
fixing rates, without Injustice to any of tha
parties concerned.
Certainty Hot "Tightwad."
We congratulate "Billy" Sunday on the suc
cess of his revival meetings In Omaha, from the
standpoint of attendance, enthusiasm and "trail
Utters." And we congratulate the promoters of
the campaign also on the success of their ef
forts to pay out the expenses and make Omaha's
contribution to the free-will offering creditable
by comparison with other cities.
When "Billy" denominated us all "tight
wads" In the early stages of his visit because
the collections did not come In faster, The Bee
railed him to account, polnttng out that Omaha right In the front row In the matter of re
deeming the guarantee fund, and 'reached that
goal In a remarkably short time. Omaha has
again proved tnat Its people are no "tight
wads" when Its comeg to responding generously
to the appeal for the personal recompense to
"Billy" for his own strenuous labors here. A
fife-will offering of $10,000 more than meets
expectations. Bishop Bristol declared that Sun
day was coming here, not so much because
Omaha was listed as a bad town, but because
it was believed to be a good town In which to
hold a revival. It strikes ns tho record has
amply vindicated the bishop's conviction.
Combination for Export Trade.
Secretary Redfleld announces the formation
f an 'American Overseas trust modeled on the
Dutch organization, the purpose of which Is to
legulate and control the export traffic of the
United States, so far as concerns its member
sh'p. This combination of exporters will bring
bout co-operation In the handling of certain
problems dealing with details of foreign traffic,
the solution of which seemed impossible of ac
complishment through any other moans. The
question has been before the federal trade
commission almost continuously since its or
ganization, and the formation of the trust has
been foreshadowed as a result of the numerous
hearings before the commission, at which the
exporters presented their pleas and arguments.
That some form of relief must be given to
American exporters in order that they might
meet foreigners on an equal footing has been
admitted from the start, and It may be the
present organization will produce the results
desired. It is a decided concession from the ad
ministration to "big business," against which
the president and his adherents have inveighed
so strongly, and over which they have cracked
the whip so vigorously. It Is dangerous, too,
in that It embodies In its form the very things
that have been deemed so undesirable in the
great industrial and commercial combinations of
the country. That It will take on monopolistic
tendencies is Inevitable, for it must have con
trol In order to accomplish Its purpose and serve
Its members with efficiency. But, if It proves
the agency through which American goods can
be sold abroad at a profit and In increasing
quantities, It will do quite as much for the pub
lic as for the exporters.
The workings of this government-fostered
trust will be watched with great interest, as
'much for Its danger to home trade as for its
effects In the foreign field.
Building and Street Blockades.
Omaha has been wonderfully patient with
building contractors In the matter of street and
sidewalk blockades while erecting buildings.
The city ordinances on the point are liberal,
and, apparently, elastic. At any rate, It has
long been the practice for the contractor to take
i.a much of the thoroughfare alongside his Job
ts he might require for his own convenience,
regardless of how it affected others. Complaint
now lodged with the city council suggests that
a limit has been finally reached, and public for
bttarance In this matter will go no further. In
some ways conditions have been Improved, but
still further room for improvement exists.
Omaha folks do not want to hamper the build
ers; in fact, the public is willing to make It as
easy as possible to erect the big modern blocks
that are going up all over town, but the baild
ers should show a little consideration for the
public, and keep In mind that streets are not
material yards.
Speaking to his professional brethren in
New York, Lord Beading, chief Justice of Eng
land, told of the present practice of British
courts: "We now strive to get at the -merits, to
allow no technicalities to prevent the courts from
cercelvlng the true facts and arriving at a just
cecislon." American courts, similarly disposed,
would restore Justice to tha pedestal now
usurped by Technicality,
It Is explained by the "Billy" Sunday-ltes
that they did not ask for the use of any uni
versity building for the student meeting in Lin
eoln, and, therefore, were not refused. They
should not have asked for a meeting In a school
building in Omaha, In which case they would
not have beea refused by our School board
Down In Missouri, 8on-!n-!aw McAdoo gave
the natives an advance sample of the political
hct air the country may expect next summer
and fall. He intimated that the administration
waa responsible for the large exports of farm
products. The secretary of the treasury is a
clever story teller, but a Joe Miller yarn will
t.ot Improve his reputation. -
Aimed at Omaha
Blair Bnterprlne: If The Omaha Bee shall succeed
In eliminating the street carnival feature of tha an
nual Ak-8ar-Hen entertainment In Omaha, It will
have accomplished more for the suppression of crime
and public Indecency In Omaha than all of "Billy"
Sunday's sermons. No excuse ever existed for such
shamelena Indecency as the street fair carnival which
Is a part of Ak-far-ncn entertainment and no apology
will obliterate Ita avll Influences upon the youth of
that city. More power to The Bee In Its effort to dis
pose of this blot on the city's shame and moral a
rremont Tribune: Omaha has Just had another
mysterious murder. Tho frequency with which such
things happen there make It difficult for Omaha to
establleh its claim of being a well-governed city.
Beatrice Pun: Omaha Is beginning to consider the
advlaablllty of eliminating the street carnival featuro
of the Ak-flar-Hen festival. A good many Nebraska
towns, which Omaha might reward as mere jay towns,
have long since considered this matter and rendered
a verdict against the street carnival nuisance.
Kearney Democrat: The present week will con
clude "Billy" Sunday's engagement at Omaha. He
has wrestled valiantly with satan with not the most
flattering results. Indeed, the response In umaha doe
not appear to have been as good, relatively, as at
some other places. Tha fact remains, nevertheless, that
Sunday has dons very remarkable work, and has
strengthened himself greatly with many who were In
doubt aa to tho man and hla methods and especially
as to his sincerity. On tha latter score he has won,
and notwithstanding disappointment to date as to
number who have "hit tha trail." It may be that ha is
exercising an Influence much deeper than that, whlcn
will have a marked effect upon the community.
Reward Btade: The Omaha liquor Interest played a
winning hand In not fighting "Billy" Sunday. The
least opposition to hla work would have had the same
result as stepping on Terence O'Lafferty's coat it
would have started a "motion."
Bloomfleld Journal: It Isn't right, we pressume, to
congratulate a criminal, but we do feel like congratu
lating that Omaha hold-up who after watching them
through a window for some time deliberately walkud
into a mansion and at the point of a gun held up and
relieved of their Jewels and cash a bunch of society
high-brows who were playing cards. If all the hold
ups were Just as discriminating.
Blue Springs Sentinel: The Omaha Bee editor Is
making a kick on their street fair mae issue to Ak-Bar-Ben
carnival. If Omaha has reached a point where
the street fair cannot be tolerated what about otlior
towns In the state?
Albion Argus: Omaha is an up-to-date, wide-awake
town and makes the most of opportunities. The many
gatherings during tha year 1916 attest this. The greatest
that the business Interests of Omaha will gather will
be the chance to sell merchandise to out-of-town
visitors attracted there to hear the great evangelist
and Incidentally do their shopping. Another that wilt
bring much trade to Omaha will be the state teach
ers' meeting to be held there at the best time In the
year for selling the season's stylea of wearing apparel
They are a live, hot bunch and are growing no deader
or colder as time goes by.
Ord Journal: Oa the trains, in the hotels and on
the streets of nearly every town In the epatern part
of the state the people are talking about "Billy"
Sunday. You can hear It almoat everywhere. One
would think that he would come In for universal con
demnation by the rough-neck crowd that ordinarily
fills ths smoking apartments of tha trains. But It
Is not so. Of course some poohoo his sincerity and
hold up to view tha financial aide of hla Omaha cam
paign. Others say he Is a go-getter and Is making
good In the attempt But the one thing that la re
markable Is the discussion that ha has aroused among
all classes of people on tha liquor question. It Is not
an unusual thing to hear a half dosen traveling men
agree that ths Influence that Rev. Bunday la ex
erting is going to result In state-wide prohibition.
They apparently Join with him In the hope that ths
saloons roust go. The change of sentiment smong
men of tho world is astonishing and is eloquent of
what Is coming. Men who are not ready to promise
to vote for woman's suffrage are admitting that It
la Inevitable. It shows that the defense is down and
that It Is an accepted fact that universal suffrage
and prohibition are going to visit Nebraska at about
the same time.
Twice Told Tales
Taklnar Doctor's Orders.
A country doctor, walking out one day with a
Highlander who boasted he waa a stanch teetotaler,
resolved to put him to the teat Passing a hotel he
asked hint in and ordered two glasses of whisky.
After they had shifted these and two or three moio
at tha doctor's expense, his friend began to get a wee
bit "glib o" the gab." The doctor then, feeling he
had him, bluntly asked:
"How does this square wl' your teetotal preten
sions T"
"Weel." quoth John, with a quiet smile, "though
I'm a stanch teetotaler, I'd be a fule to refuse what
the doctor orders." Pittsburgh Chronicle Telegraph.
Bar Practice.
A Cockney solicitor, who was characteristically
mixed up In the use of the "h'a." happened to meet
one of ths wits of the American bar.
Tho Englishman, commenting on ths legal profea
slon of Philadelphia, said that Its members were very
proficient and learned, but that they were fbsolutely
Ignorant on the subject of "hentalls."
"Ah." answered the American, "my dear air, we
may be ignorant of ths 'hentail,' but our knowledge
of the 'cocktail Is unsurpassed." New Tork limes.
'Nothing; Now.
"I see," said Bllktns, "that a French scientist
has discovered a method for staving off olB age."
"Well, what of It?" demanded Wtlklns. "There's
nothing new In that. A man can stave off old age
by Jumping off the Klffel tower, or dropping a
lighted match In a powder barrel while sitting on It
or by rocking the boat when he's out in the water,
or by riding over Niagara falls sitting aafride of a
log. Those French scientists make me tired with their
hullabaloo over nothing." Harper's Weekly.

Miss Martha Powlus. (S, of Bloomaburg, Pa., mar
ried a widower, Philip Graham, TX. "I am proud that

Youngsters may be lively In matrimonial affairs,
but the elders enow aome speed too. The mother of

her daughter hit the center aisle to slow music.
Baltimore authorities have rounded up a fine bunch

OMAHA. Oct. I8.-To the Editor of The
Bee: In reply to E. M. Waymoro'e sug
gestion to make a day police force out
of the city firemen doing night duty, I
have thla to say:
la Mr. Wayrnore aware of the fact
that the "night side" at our fire houses
Is on duty from 6 p. m. to 7 a. m.T Has
he any Idea of the effect of six hours'
"pounding" the pavement on a man who
will obtain poewrlbly eight hours' rest out
of twenty-four, an that same eight hours
to be obtained Intermittently? Has he
ever tried It? I have, and can say posi
tively that it la not what It Is cracked
up to be.
Perhaps our fire laddies do answer only
"an occasional bell," but you generally
find them Johnny on tha spot which 1
am afraid you would not If they were
made to do police duty six hours each
Omaha's fire department Is said to be
one of the most efficient in the country,
and I for one am heartily in favor of
letting well enough alone.
I would suggest that Mr. Wayrnore and
a fow of his friends try It this way:
Work all day In your office or shop, go
home, have supper and then go out and
do six hours' police duty, and see bow
It works. He is asking the firemen to
donate their time, and It's a poor rule
that don't work both ways.
I will add In closing that I am not a
City employe. JAMES LEWIS.
Here and There
A speed record that Is In a class by It
self belongs to the volunteer firemen of
Brlclle, N. J. In the performance of their
duties sround a biasing barn three mem
bers of the company raised a neat of yel
low Jackets, which thereupon gave a min
iature exhibition of "Billy" Sunday's hot
place. The speed of the retreating fire
men cleaving the air for safety was a
scream from start to finish.
