Orenville ML. Dodge.
In the death of Major Oeneral Crenvllle
jlelleo Dodge Is recorded the pasaing of a pio
neer whose active life apanned two distinct eras
of national development. He was a prominent
factor in both, and achieved distinction in either
that would entitle him to recognition from hie
people. He participated in the work of the
early day effort to conquer the wilderness be
tween the great lakes and the mountains, and
had made for himself a prominent place before
the civil war began. His military eervlees were
brilliant and distinguished, and his high rank
came to him on merit. In civil life General
Dodge waa no less distinguished, being a leader
In his chosen profession and recognised here
and In Europe as a man of uncommon ability.
The part Oeneral Dodge played la the build
ing of the Union Pacific road, and In directing
Ita operations for many years, Is a notable chap
ter In the atory of a life that waa busy and full
of usefulness In many ways. Hla aoclal quali
ties were no less marked than hla business and
professional rapacity, and hla Interconrae with
the world was pleasant and genial. Hla place
In the history of the nation and In the develop
ment of the glorious west Is definitely fixed.
Public School! No Place for Religion or Politics.
The Bee Is heartily In sympathy with every
movement to Improve the moral condition of the
community and to keep the boys and glrla la the
right path, but we are at the same time, on prin
ciple, irrevocably opposed to the Injection of re
ligion, politics or commercialism Into the public
schools. For this reason we deplore the per
sistent efforts of tho organization of Protestant
churches that aponsored the "Billy Bunday re
vival to use the machinery of the public achoola
for the promotion of their evangelical work.
When Nebraska's constitution makers ex
pressly prohibited sectarian instruction in any
school or institution supported by public funds,
tbe spirit, If not the letter, of the pronounce
ment, it seems to us, included indirection as well
aa direction. While. the Information la doubtless
desirable for evangelical purposea, It makes no
difference to the efficiency of public school
tearhlnrt whether the parents of the children
belong to one church or to another church, or
to no church at all any more than whether they
belong to one or another political party. To
utilize the schools to take a church census is aa
foreign to their purpose as to take a political
census, or a "wet" and "dry" census, or a theater
patronage census. The request upon the school
board to order a religious census of tbe school
children tsken, no matter how well intended,
dlffera only in degree, therefore, from the re
quest for tbe uso of the public school buildings
for "Billy" Sunday meetings, and as a precedent
Is fraught with similar dangers.
If such a census of religious affiliations is
worth while, let the churches organize their own
census bureau and make tbe enumeration oq
their own account and no one can possibly enter
any objection. '
Defending; Two Coasts.
The Ail-American Scientific congfeas, Just
ending Ita work at Washington, wandered quite
a distance from mere abstractions of science,
and got pretty deeply into the concrete proposi
tions of applied military methods. Its discus
sions bad to do mainly with the formation of a
closer union of the Amerlcaa, and the problems
that Incidentally arise in connection therewith.
The problems of the externa relations of the
'American republics largely assume the single
phase of defense against foreign attack. It la
understood. If not expressed, that South America
still offers a temptation to Imperialistic exploit
ers of Europe, and to some extent to similarly
minded patrtota of Asia.
This brings prominently to the fore the ques
tion of a two-coast defense, for a simultaneous
attack on both the Atlantic and Pacific fronts la
within tbe range of possibility. If the United
Slates is to take up ita share of the responsibil
ity growing out of the All-American union, it
muat prepare to meet any of the great emergen
cies incident thereto, and should therefore be
ready at all times for anything that might hap
pen. This is the sum and substance of the
problem of preparedness. It Is not our own
coast line alone we are engaging to protect, but
we are obligated under our promulgation of and
adherence to the Monroe doctrine, to assist other
American republics in defensive operatlona.
8o far as the United Statea is concerned, the
situation hss been well considered by the War
college, and plans for defense are worked out
lit detail. It only remains for congress to give
assent and provide the means for carrying Into
execution the scheme that does not look to mili
tarism, but to Insurance against untold loss In
event of possibility becoming actuality.

Tbe Bee's Waahdagtea Oorraarponaeat.
ONB of the moat plcturaaqiie characters la the
Blxty-fouHh congress t "Cyclone" James Har
vey Devta of Teaa. I first knew Pavta a quar
ter of a century ago when the popullet convention met
In Omaha and. among other repreaenuutree of the
Omaha Bee, was asalgned to cover that convention.
At that time Davis was tall, gaunt, wtth a swarthy
complexion and wore fierce muatacheie. A quarter of
a eantury, bewerver. has brought many phyelcel
changes to tbla Tea Cyclone.' as he was dubbed,
aoeordlng to his ewn story, by the Cincinnati ICn
qiilrer and Ctilewgo newspapers during the days when
the populist party waa In the making: The dark mus
tache have changed to gray, and "Cyclone" Davte
wears a beard, chancing hla personal appearance vet?
greatly. "Cyclone" Davis affects a blue or a gray
flannel shirt with a lew neckband and ao collar; he
prides himself en never having worn a collar or a
necktie. His aasoctatee in the lower house of con
gress from Texas do not hesitate to aay that he l
still, as m those faraway days, one of the very great
orators of the southwest and aome of these time
when the question of pre pared nea Is before congress.
In one form or another, "Cyciorte" Davis will be
heard In some Impassioned utterances and then we
may know whether he still lives up to his reputation
made when the Farmers' alliance, populist party, free
silver party end the greenback party were powerful
According to "Cyclone" Davis' biography In the
Congressional Directory, he earned the cognomen of
"a Texas Cyclone" la debating the money question
with Oeneral Wat Hardin In im In the oapltol build
ing In Frankfort. Dubbed by the papers above re
ferred to as "Cyclone Davis." Mr. Davis does hot
hesitate to say that half his mall Is now received
bearing that appellation. He played a leading part In
organising the forcea for Mr. Bryan, commlaaioned by
the democratic, silver-republican and popullet parties
In laoe to unite these forces for the Commoner, In
which he spent about nine months and made about 300
speeches. Mr. Da via waa appointed superintendent
of agriculture for the Philippines by the Wilson ad
ministration, but declined In view of hla race for con
gress, recommending hla son, Valton .for the appoint
ment, with acceptance.
Relng on the subject of the Congressional Direc
tory It Is rather Interesting to notice the modesty of
some of the distinguished gentlemen represented end
the desire of other gentlemen to get their achieve
ments before the public.
The shortest biography Is that of Frank Park of
.Sylvester, Ga. lie statee that he la a democrat, the
place and the date of his birth; the offices he ha
filled In Georgia are a closed book so far as Mr. Park
Is Individually concerned, contenting himself by simply
saying: "Frank Park, democrat, of Sylvester, Oa."
The longest biography In the Congressional Direc
tory la that of Senator Henry Algernon du Pont of
It has been the tradition of the army and navy fur
many years that politics has no place among the
personnel of the military eatabljshment of the United
Shipmates, from Texas and Maine frequently share
the same stateroom and It Is no unusual thing to find
a Junior lieutenant of marines from New York In
close association wtth an ensign from Florida. But
Secretary Daniels, since he has been In office, seems
to have drawn a pretty emphatic line between the sec
tions In the selection of hla staff, for sine ehe ha
been secretary of the navy, Mr. Daniels, who is him
self from North Carolina, has made twelve designa
tions, and of the twelve, eleven are from souths: n
states, considering Maryland as one of these. In fact,
the only northern man In the list Is from Michigan,
and he apparently got in while the secretsry wnt

This aelsctlon brinaa to mind the atorv Jake Ilea
told ofter hla third defeat for city chamberlain
In New York in the early '80s: "In looking over the
returns I waa astonished to find." said Mr. Hrir.
"that In all of the polling precincts of the 'ate' district
I got 344 votes to my opponent's three. Not under
standing this enormous percentage In my favor J
went to Johnnie O'Brien, the district leader, and eakeJ
him for an explanation. He did not understand me at
first, but when I told him what the returns showed
he exclaimed: 'Hully gee, them three must have got
la while I was at dinner.' "
Colombian Treaty at Bryan's Muterpiece.
Mr. Bryan again gives a portion of his much
occupied time to the advocacy of the treaty
framed by himself, under the terms of which
the United Statea will be obligated to pay 125.
000,000 to Colombia for the purpose of discred
iting a former republican administration. The
late secretsry of state barps on this string with
such persistence as to convince aome that the
United 8tatea hes done grave injury to a
weaker republic, ami now halts in the matter o
making reparation and establishing friendly re
lations based on Justice.
Colombla'a alleged claim rests on thin air,
and the payment of any sum by the United
Statea for the aatiafactlon of the demands made
would be submission to blackmail. This case
baa been ventilated again and again, and the
facta have often been placed before the public
It la useful to the democrats, though, aa afford
ing them a pretext for attack on President
Roosevelt's preparations tor constructing the
Panama canal, and for this reason la being kept
before the public aa prominently aa possible.
All the established facta connected with It mark
! aa a species of graft Mr. Bryan should be
ashamed of supporting.
Colombla'a aignature to tbe Pan-American
rgrcement is desirable, but It la not worth the
price Mr. Bryan wot'ld have us pay. It would
open the door to similar abuaea of our generoa
ity. Colombia must be made to understand that
to fully ahare ia the privileges of tbe union of
Americas national lesponsibility and govern
lueatai atabiUty are eaeenUal requisite.

KEARNEY, Neb., Jan. 4-To the Ed
itor of The Bee: Some few days ago
there appeared an article. In The Bee
stating there was about 17.000 still due
Spanish war veterans. Now, this an
nouncement hy Mr. Halt was no news to
the veterans of the Spanish war; they ,
knew of It while Mr. Hall waa still wear
ing knee panties. This money has been
at the state house for seventeen years,
and why Adjutant Hall has taken It upon
himself to distribute It la more than I
can see. Besides, that money la entitled
tb compound Interest at the legal rate of
7 per cent from the date of Ita acceptance
by this state until Its proper distribution
to the veterans, to whom i. rightfully
The writer stated his claim to Mr. Hall
briefly and to the point. He was a mem
ber of the National Guard previous to
his enlistment in the United States vol
unteer service In Company EX Flint regi
ment. United Statea volunteers. He went
to Lincoln at the first call of the federal
government for the service of the First
regiment. He was at Mncoln ten days
before he waa mustered Into the United
States volunteer service In Company E,
First Nebraska, on April :. 1898. He
wrote Mr. Hall to ascertain the amount
of the federal money that was sent to
this state to pay for the service of men
that were accepted prior to enlistment,
or from the date they left home until
they were enlisted Into the United States
volunteer army (that may be due him).
Here la the answer:
Joseph Morris. Kearney, Neb.: Refer
ring to your postal card of the Jith Inst.,
thia fund is for the payment of aervlcea
prior to mustering in. Your r.ame does
not appear on the Hat. Therefore, you
are not entitled to any part of this fund.
If I am not entitled to any part of the
fund, as Mr. Hall calls It, who Is? I was
through the entire service from the time
my company left David City until we
were mustered out at tne Presidio, Cali
fornia. But Mr. Hall says the Third Nebraska
regiment Is entitled to the greater por
tion of that money. Let's see. There
was no such organisation as a Third Ne
braska, Nebraska National Guard, prior
to Ita formation at Lincoln. Therefore,
the members of that . regiment were
guests at Camp Saunders, Lincoln. Neb.,
at their own free pleasure until they were
sworn Into the volunteer service In the
Third Nebraska regiment. The First and
Second regiments were there because they
were obliged to be there under contract
of enlistment. Is this plain to you, Mr.
Hall? Is it possible that after seventeen
years of waiting that Mr. Hall can find
John Jones of Company Q and Jim Smith
of Company Z and Ike Getmo of Com
pany P to algn vouchers for tl-.e amounts
that are duo them? Come on out with
It. Mr. Hall. Print a list of the names In
the leading papers of the state of the
amounts due each veteran opposite each
name. Then at the next legislature that
honorable body will find a means of dla
tributlng this money.
My advice to you. Mr. Hall. Is to keep
your hands off of that money. It la
nothing to you. JOSEPH MORRIS.
