Conerring on Appropriation.
New from Washington Is to the effect the
president Is conferring with leaders In congress
vllh a view to aystematltlng the appropriations
at the coming session. That th system in
vogue is wasteful Is apparent to even' casual
ttudents, and our methods never cease to as
tonish foreign statesmen. Under ordinary prac
tice the appropriations are made up by various
committees without any efficient co-operatton,
and after congressional logrolling has added to
the extravagance of committees the bill bear
little or no relation to prospective revenue and
the garment Is cut without regard to cloth
measurements. The budget, system Is recog
rized by students of government to be the scien
tific method of appropriation, but if this cannot
be obtained ew-operstlon of house leaders, where
nil appropriation originate, may secure an ap
t roach to economy and efficiency, and If the
liesldent can bring tbla about be will have per
formed an Important service. The condition of
the treasury, with a deficit staring the admlnls
Itatlon In the face and extraordinary appropria
tions for the defense program coming up, econ
tmy Is more than ever necessary and should
fiov a factor In enabling those who believe In
Governmental economy to accomplish their pur
pose. It would be expecting too much, how
ever, lo see the pork barrel eliminated alto
Mtber, but every little helps when every scoop
into the money bins scrapes close to the bottom.
Reminder of Old Day.

Announcement, when the wilderness suddenly
resounded with the voices of struggling and
t opefiil humanity, dance halls, saloons and gam
bling places sprung up where but a few days
before only the wild creatures of nature held
fcway, where some hopes were realized and those
cf the many were blasted, only to revive again
vlth the ssine announcement from another
quarter. The placer In those days was the poor
man's game, for the capital required was only
a meager grub stake, a pick, shovel, pan and a

trawn and a hope that never faltered. What a
fuscinatlng story a collaboration of those new
l oper accounts of the old mining days would be.
If all those dreams of gold had been realized

Enforced Depotitt by Publio Service Patron.
The Indianapolis News comments upon a
ruling recently made by the California State
Kutlroad commission ar of much interest to that
city, and we may sdd also of equal Interest to
public service patrons in Omaha as well. The
California commission, so we are told, has swept
i way completely the. existing system by which
V ibltc utility companies required deposits from
consumer to guaranty payment of bills, care of
tqulpment, etc. By the commission's decision
the companies ar required to return the de
posit or to apply them upon current bill, and
their right to discontinue service for nonpay
lientiof disputed bills Is denied. "To compel
a customer to pay an excessive bill," declare
th commission, "Is manifestly unfair and un
just; no utility company has the right to be th
Judge in It own cas. as at present."
Th Indianapolis paper call attention to th
fact that th water company there may require
4 2,000 consumers to deposit $10 each in its
custody, which would give tt the free use of J
ever $400,000 of other people's money, and
nor than that, provide a leverage for enforc
ing all sorts of arbitrary exaction. The strange
thing I that bar In Omaha th only public
hervlce that I permitted to demand deposits
and to hav th whip-hand in all disputes Is the
diubltcly-owned utility, whose patrons apparently
I k.ve no recourse.

Ever since the president gave out his plan
fur preparing the country for defense there ha
been a demand that the recommendation of the
army general staff be also made public, aa it
vii generally understood that the president
turned down certain recommendations of th
staff. Secretary Garrison of th War depart
ment haa now added hi appeal and properly
urge that tbla Is a matter In which the entire
ration is deeply Interested, and the presumption
l that the general staff, with It technical
knowledge, ahould hav Ideas at least worth
consideration. That the public ha limited
knowledge of military affair la In a large meas
ure true, but it Is Just as captble of passing
Judgment on the army report a oa the presi
dent' plan. Th publio must bear the burden
cf Increased army and navy expenditure and
congressional action must hav popular support
to carry th measure through.
That the army plan I more xteastv and
expensive than tb publio would approve 1
probably true, but so far aa It deals with th sci
entific conduct of war or preparation for th
sum I mora likely to b based on correct prln
tlples and capable of effective execution than on
eiolved by civilians. Th reason for withhold
ing any official recommendation from the pub
lic are not obvious, and the very fact of its being
It-Id back increases the desire to know, though
publication may possibly cause people to wonder
what all th secrecy was about.
A Mesage for the Boy

he wore something not usually worn by old gentlemen
riding on train, for, showing below the rim of th
hat waa a line of vivid acarlet.
Th porter, more than ordinarily aollcltou. asalated
th old gentleman Into hla cbalr. Then the old gentle
man removed hla hat and he waa wearing a tiny,

Now, there are only three men among all the hun

His fare became grave, thoughtful.
"I suppose you would like to have me say some

"The boys would appreciate It very much if you
would," I told him.
Then he began to apeak. As ha spoke watched hU

the Editor of The Uce: I am from Mis

been wondering where Iowa country
school teachers get their education. Li
a country district not far from Council
Bluffs the pupils are taught that It is a
diegrare to be Mrs. Jones' hired girl.
Maybe it Is I don't know. Perhaps we
should all fall down on our knees when
we meet a country school teacher. Tee!
t hadn't thought of It before, but I think
perhaps wa ahould. This came teacher
tries to teach housekeeping. One of the
text books says. "One should wear a
tub dress while working In the kitchen."
One of the children asked this well-informed
teacher the definition for tub
dress, and he said, "It wna some kind of
loose sack ar something.'
I wish he would write to "Advice for
the lovelorn," and ask the moaning cf
tub dress. A ions sack or something
may be all right for him to wear In the
kitchen, but Mrs. Jones' hired girl very
much prefers something neater. As for
being Mr. Jones' hired girl, I am one.
My wage are 8 a week. I have a good
room with steam heat, and electric lights.

the Editor of The Bee: From Inst Sun
day's Bee It appears that while Rev. Dr.
Frederick F. Jtouse of the First Congre
gational church of Omaha does not be
lieve the Bible account of creation, yet
he declares that in his future preaching
he will lay expeclal strew on redemption.
But If the Bible story of creation is not
true, how can Dr. Rouse believe. If he
does believe, that other equally absurd
story wherein It appears that a snake
crawled throunh a garden fence, or
mnybe ant up on the top rail, and en
tered into conversation with a woman,
and that Adam and Eve committed a
grlevotifl s'n notwithstanding they did
not know the difference between right
Since Adam, as we ore told, did not
know good from evil, he certainly could
not have known there waa anything
wrong iti enttng fruit that Ood had told
him not to eat; therefore Incurred no
guilt In the art of disobedience and hence
did not "fall."
If, then, there was no "fall." there was
surely no need of any redeemer and Dr.
House's preaching of redemption Is
vain. As a matter of fact there could
not have teen any redeemer because
there was nothing to he redeemed, and
It necessarily follows Hat the story of
the birth, suffering and death of Christ,
however interesting and affecting It may
be, is not true
Now, take notice that as to the au
thenticity of the Bible account of crea
tion. I at this time neither affirm nor
deny . I simply undertake to show, as I
think I have shown, that if, aa Dr. Rouse
contends, that story is not true then that
other story of the fall of man fairly goes
with it and Is not true; that the bottom
falls out of Christianity, and that the
whole Christian system tumbles Into ab
solute ruin. CHARLES WOOSTER.

tha Editor of Tha Baa: It la claimed

avan few people are entitled to It, for

Intelligent that he seemed mora like a
child than a dog. When I would get up
In the morning he held up hla right paw
to snake handa with me. Whan I wouhL
go to my meals at noon and in tha even

yard to meet me and frequently would
coma a block or two to meet me and al
ways held up his paw to shake hands,
but. when I would b leaving homo even
for a few hours, he refused to hak
hands with ma goodbye
It aeema to me that a dog that will do
that way haa more than animal Instinct
to tell htm Just when I would be coming
home and when to come to meet me.
When I was leaving home on Tuesday
afternoor less than two hours before he
died from pleurisy, he wagged his tail
snd held kp hia right paw for ma to
hak hands goodbye, a thing he had
never dona befora. Was it simply lnttl.ict
that told htm it was hla last goodbye to

waa so bad off.
W did not try to make him affectl la

ahows a much affection aa that dog

The wolf of famine bares his teeth
Beside the naked Fteel.
Phe cradles on her wasted breast
A babo too weak to feed;
Arlae! oh. Empire of the West.
And help her In her need.
The love of Freedom In the blood
Of Poland ever runs.
And links her o'er the briny flood
To Freedom's favored sons.
So from the plenty we command
O! let us now display
The spirit of the open hand.
And smooth her troubled way.
