Scotching a Lie.

hastens to "scotch" this He, which we are sur

leged hearsay in the editorial columns of the
It la said that each of Omaha's three Enirtlah dally
papers received U.om from th fund raJaed t- defray

In contracting with Hunday In th beginning was due
to the fart that one or mora of th newspapers held
out. If It Wer tnie. It would b proof of th thorough
luminous manner In which th Sunday campalgna ar
conducted. Did th Omaha papers get th money T
Th Bee speaks only for Itself, but it brands
this report as an unqualified falsehood, made
tut of the whole cloth. Bo far as It is con
cerned The Bee announced In advance that it
would handle the "Billy" Sunday campaign In
Its news columns strictly according to Its news
value and no question 'of a financial considera
tion of f3,000, or 8 cents, or any other sum, was
ever Involved. No one knows better than the
Fremont Tribune man himself that for a news
paper to accept money for printing new mat
ter without labeling It "advertisement" would
be a violation of the federal postofflce law,
subject to severe penalty. In one of his public
statements "Billy" said something about at
tempts by hostile interests In other cities to
bribe newspapers not to print accounts of his
meetings, but no one knowing the record of
The Bee would for a moment Imagine this paper
could be bought either to print or suppress
the "Billy" Sunday campaign news much less
make the attempt. That may or may not be true
of papers In Fremont nothing of the kind has
over been truthfully charged against The Be.
It may be doubted if the better posted
among Nebraskans, even, fully realise Just how
prosperous this state Is, and how rapidly it is
glowing In wealth and Importance. Close ob
servers have not always been able to keep up
with the progress of events, so broad and raag
rlflcent are the achievements of this state. Now
and again one comes across something that af
fords a basis for comparison, and thus gives an
illuminating notion of what this state really is
tolng. Several years ago the farmers of Arkan
sas were Induced to undertake diversification of
crops, to the end that their prosperity might be
trade the more certain. As a result of this
change In policy Arkansas is now being con
gratulated on a cotton crop for 1915 of $46,
000,000, and of corn, wheat and other farm
products sufficient to bring the total crop re
turn for the state up to (95,000,000. On the
tluy this announcement was made the corn crop
hlone of Nebraska was worth at farm prices sev
eral millions of dollars more than the entire
farm output of Arkansas. As the population
of Arkansas is more than 30 per cent greater
than that of Nebraska, the figures given afford
tin opportunity for further comparison of char
acter and achievement of the people. Boasting
is of no particular service, but pride la always
justifiable when Its basis Is as firm as that of
the people of Nebraska.
The Auditorium Rental Schedule.
The main thing in a schedule of charges for
a municipal-owned auditorium is not so much
tie amount of the rental as a fair classification
and the equal treatment of all who are entitled
to use It for similar purposes. Money-making
enterprises should pay as much as they would
te charged by a privately-owned auditorium,
while public, semi-public and charity projects
should be favored. The real dividends from the
investment of the people's money in this piece
ot property must come, for the most part, In the
form of benefits derived from entertainments,
exhibitions, meetings, conventions,' etc., open to
the public at a nominal admission fee or no
slmlsslon fee at all. In a word, a publicly
cwned auditorium must be a popular institution
aud this ahould be the basic idea behind the
schedule of rental charges.
Defense and the Deficit.
Washington gives out the news that the
leaders in congress have tentatively endorsed
the president's ambitious defense program, and
that It will be presented to congress with con
siderable backing. One snag, however, will be
encountered as soon as the program is fairly
launched. Far-sighted members of both parties
realise that the coming session of congress will
bo confronted with a problem quite as serious
and more Immediately pressing than that of de
fense. This arises from the failure of present
revenue laws to produce an Income sufficient to
rtieet the expenses of the government under
democratic administration. The deficit is grow
ing steadily at the rate of nearly half a million
dollars a day, and no proposals for retrench
ment in any line are yet heard from the presi
dent or his party leaders. Their only talk is
of new forms of taxation and for the extension
of present methods, of selling bonds and other
plans for extending the debt of the government,
a remarkable exhibition of the Inefficiency of an
administration that has turned a surplus of
IS5.000.000 into a deficit of 176,000.000 In two
years. This situation, the most serious the
United States has ever faced in time of peace,
c'oesn't appear to worry th democrats, who go
t n glibljr prating of the wonders they are doing
and trying to make the people think everything
is lovely. The opening of congress will bring
Living Wage for Preachers.
Baptist ministers in the United States are
paid at an average rate of $1.87 per day. This
statement comes from the Massachusetts con
ference of that sect, and Is presumably accurate.
As some of the pastors of more wealthy congre
gations receive really fancy pay, this means that
many of their brethren of the cloth throughout
the country are laboring for considerably less
than the average rate. Sociologists have deter
mined that at least $2 per day is required to
Maintain even an humble family at the "Amr
l'an standard of living.". How do these preach
ers get along? In the smaller communities the
cost of living is not so high, but even with this
allowance it must lo a difficult matter to keep
Ihe body In condition to support the aoul while
pouring out the message of a free salvation. The
ituaUon is one that ought to have more serious
consideration from th churches.
Congrressmaa Hloholaa Xrtngworth. "
IT IB NOW, and always ha been, a characteristic
of the democratic party to promt all thlnge to
all nun and then proceed, If successful In dluj
Ing a sufficient number of voters, to carry out or to
repudiate Just ao many of their promises aa may see in
to fit the demands of th occasions as they may
arls!. Tou rfmember the solemn protestations of
good faith that accompanied th platform enunciated
by the democratic, convention of 191Z Each plan
was a a red pled Intended to be redeemed to th
letter. That was what they said before election.
What did they do after election? I.et me enumerate
a few of those pledge and leave It to you to be th
judges of the fact of their redemption. Rigid economy
In contradistinction to republican eitravaganc; ampla
revenues for the support of th government; Industrial
prosperity under a tariff law which provided for "ef
fcctlv competition;" reduction In th cost of living;
free tolls for American ships In th Panama canal; th
rehabilitation of th American merchant marine; atrlct
enforcement and extension of th civil service; a single
presidential term, and many other things. Merely to
state them Is to effectively bring before your minds
tha evidence of their complete repudiation.
What of their promised rigid eonomy? Th fact
Is that th last democrats congress appropriated of
th people's money tin.flOO.ooo mor than any repub
lican congress In history, and It would have been
far worse, worse by millions upon millions, had It not
been for certain republican senators, who not only
waited watchfully, but acted effectively, to check th
rapacity of th pork barrel advocatea. All this, mind
you. In th face of falling revenues, falling revenues
In tim of world peace; falling revenues before war
waa ever heard of or evsn dreamed of; falling reve
nue In spit of Increased Importations, not only be
fore, but after tho war. Then cam what they called
th war tag. a tax burdensome and oppressive In the
extreme; a tag Imposed on objects and business trans
actions never before tased In history except when this
country Itself was actually at war. Th nam "Wat
Tax" Is a gross misnomer. Some such tax was In
evitable, war or no war, to remedy the 'deficiency
caused by the Underwood tariff law. It was a de
ficlency tax, pur and simple, but even with th 1100,
000,009 additional revenue that this tax raised, th def
icit grew and the treasury balance continued to fall.
On the first day of July a year ago th balance In
th treasury was mor than 1140,000.000. On th day
congress convened, when th democracy started their
treasury raid. It had shrunk to Sfl8.OO0.00U. By th end
of June It had shrunk to practically nothing at all.
It was difficult to find out Just what It was because
th policy of pitiless publicity went on a vacation for
a time, and the treasury balance was not given to th
newspapers. A windfall came, though, during the last
two or three days of June. Th screws had been put
on as they never had been before to collect the last
possible cent of the Income tax, and on the first of
July It was heralded to tha country that the treasury
balance was something like 170,000,000. Again the proc
ess of erosion set In and tho balanc began to dwindle
until on th last of September It was about cut In half.
Th treasury was running behind more than $1Q.000,0C0
a month. The policy of pitiless publicity would soon
hav had to take another vacation. Th situation
would not look well to th public. They would begin
to compare th balanc with republican balances, and
so a new method was hit upon, designed simply and
solely to fool the people.
On the first of Octrfber the treasury balanc was
announced to be some $128,000,000, and accompanying It
was a brief statement to the effect that the treasury
officials had changed their methods of bookkeeping.
For Ui first time In a hundred years th treasury ao.
counts were Juggled to make a good showing. Meth
ods of high finance had found their way Into th man
agement of the people s money. This method was In
genlous, If you picas, but even it could not stop th
process of erosion. Within twenty days the balance
had fallen to $116,000,000, a loss of $12,000,000 even undet
this new and enlightened method. Under tha. old time,
honored method of keeping the public accounts this
shows that there Is today a balance in the treasury of
not mor than about $20,000,000, and with the continued
loss of something Ilk $,000 a day It Is not difficult
to estimate when th Xtilted States treasury runs dry.
Th American people, gentlemen, under this admlnlsi
tratlon, ar riding hell-bent to bankruptcy and paying
for the privilege with a war tax. Their boasted pros
perity has not come. Want and misery have pre
vailed In th land. Pom industries. It Is true, ar
prosperous, but they ar Industries which are not sup.
plying th American market, but th market of tha
warring countries of Europ.
Th coat of living has not been cut down. On the
contrary, from th day that the democratic tariff law
was enacted It has continually risen. The law grant
ing free tolls to American coastwise ships in th Pan
ama canal was repealed. It matters not wkether th
law was good or bad policy at 'th time of It enact.
mnt. Th democratic party Indorsed It; democratic
leaders, from the president down, praised It. Its re
peal was a flat repudiation of a democratic pledge
80 aa regards our rehabilitated merchant marine they
hav swept the last vestige of It from the xaelflo
ocean and have turned It over to Japan. If this law
had been drafted by th shrewdest Japanese, statesman
It could not hav served mor effectively to transfer
the control of the carrying trad of the Paolfio ocean
to. the Japanese.
Of all Infractions, though, of their various planks,
that relating to th civil service has been the most
barefaced and brutal. I say, .nd I measure rnv words,
that under this administration civil service has been
debauched and outraged. I am not speaking at ran
dom. I know of on revenue district whr In th laat
year seventeen men. all democrats, hav been ap
pointed, and thirty men, all republicans, have been re
moved, wher th only republican, remaining on the
roll ar men who cannot b discharged without cause
becauae they ar old soldiers, but the process of deal
lng with them Is about as effective as discharge be
cause they are not aaalgned to work and can draw no
pay Can ther be a mor flagrant debauchery of the
civil service than to drop men of. In some cases, thirty

OMAHA, Oct. V. To th Editor of Th
Bee: It Is an easy matter to criticise th
police department of Omaha, but In th
Interest of fairness a few words might
and should be said to show that most ot
th critics ar Indulging In flights of
fancy rather than In facts. W all know
that Omaha la a great western metropolis,
and I wish to state that It Is efficiently
policed under the direction of Commis
sioner Kugel and Chief Dunn.
During th last few weeks various rob
beries snd hold-ups have occurred In
Omaha snd a llttl thought will explain
th situation. Omaha has been widely
advertised of late as a city of great
prosperity, which advertisement serves as
an incentive for the criminally-Inclined
of other places to drift this way. Any
police expert will verify that statement.
Again, th travel from the Ban Fran
cisco exposition Is quit heavy Just now
and Omaha, being a gateway, becomes
one of th stopplng-off places for all sorts
of travelers. Within th last few weeks
th Chicago authorities mad a general
clean-up of that city, driving hundreds
of undesirables out of th city on sus
pended sentences. Bom of th men thus
cast adrift found their way to Omaha,
others to Kansas City, soma to Des
Moines and so on. Omaha got a shar.
th police maintain.
- An Investigation of th pollc records
her shows that In every Instance except
on the police have during the last few
weeks apprehended th criminal. In th
cos of -th Smith murder It Is known
that th fiend being sought operated In
similar manner In Kansas City, Topeka
and St. Paul, and It remained for th
Omaha pollc to actually determine his
Identity and to send out circulars bearing
his likeness and measurements. Th ex
perience of the polio has bn In suoh
a case that It will b only a matter of
tlm befor th Smith murderer will be
arrested and brought to Justice,
I believe it Is only fair to give the po
llc credit for what they do, rather than
to heap abuse upon them every time a
situation seems to suggest such a course.
It Is well to remember that Greater
Omaha has an area of thlrty-on and a
half square miles within Its corporate
limits and It Is likewise well to remember
It Is a great railroad center and, further
more, bear In mind that other cities re
cently have had what soma call "carni
vals of crlm."
All things considered, Omaha la on of
the best policed cities In th United
States and the best evidence Is th rec
ords. I Just like to be fair about these
matters, that's alL T. F. QUINLiAN.

. Chicago's .New Policy.
CHICAOO. Oct. 27.-TO the Editor of
The Bee: Chicago does not propose to
destroy Its reputation by repeating th
mistakes that have been made In the'
past in the treatment of the nomadic
unemployed. The greatest possible pub
licity will be given to the policy of th
present administration In It effort to
deter the unemployed and unemployable
and protect the .vast number of our own
citizens who deserve first consideration.
1. The administration will utilize every
agency to give Chicago citizens prefer
ence wherever employment Is offered In
public or privat service.
1 Th administration will strongly
urge all organisations to glv aid to
th residents of the city. W will re
duce and not Increase, provisions for
merly made for nonresident homeless
men. A work test In th municipal
wood yard will be required of all ap
plicants of th municipal lodging house.
S. Tho administration will Instruct the
police ta make special efforts to prevent
the return of the criminal, the beggar
and th vagrant, accustomed to exploit
the city under guise of unemployment.
-4. The administration advise young
men and women In other cities without
employment not to com to Chicago seed
ing employment during th winter. In
view of the conditions under which
young people are compelled to live 1.'
employment Is not Immediately forth
coming, the city cannot retain th name
of being an honorable host without ad
vising against this.

Editor of Th Bee: Almost three cen
turies ago a little band of pilgrims
landed at Plymouth, on the bleak and
barren shores of New England, where
they set up a government "without a
bishop and without a king." The key
stone of th arch supporting that govern
ment was the "separation of church and
state." From that small beginning this
country haa grown and developed to Its
present proportions 100,000,000 people, th
most .prosperous and powerful nation In

The Circle-H Its
Meaning To You
On the front of every 1916 Hupmobile you see a
letter H enclosed in a circle as shown above.
It stands for Hupmobile quality; and for the reputa
tion which haa grown out of that quality.
It should remind you of the Hupmobile's records for
economy and low repair costs; of its comfort and
luxury; of the genuine satisfaction its ownership
brings; of the unusual value of the car itself.
You see the same Circle-H at Hupmobile service
stations, wherever you go.
There it signifies free service to 1916 Hupmobile
owners; labor in exchange for the coupons that go
with the car.
In the car, this symbol stands for J 200 more value
found in the increased power and improved per
formance; in the greater comfort; in the real
leather upholstery and better equipment; in im
proved quality throughout.
An inspection of the new car, a ride in it, and an
explanation of the free service system will give you
a lull realization of the meaning of the Circle-H.
