Their task la to plan the spending, leaving to congress the duty of rustling the wherewith. Colonel Bryan thinks we must buy the friendship of the Latin-American countries by i standing for the 125,000,000 holdup, which, aa ' secretary of state, he waa endeavoring to help I Colombia to perpetrate. Some folks will doubt ; If friendship that must be acquired that way Is worth having. The position of presiding Judge of the crim inal court seems to be particularly sought by our district Judges just before they come up for election, presumably on the theory that the privilege of excusing Jurors la a political asset. It so, It should be passed around ao each Judge has a turn with successive Jury panela. a H. 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. ralaed today and ill llnee, but no no The uow blockade was finally ticet cara rre atarted asaln en i ran on et txrdula time.

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 Delaware. 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 States. 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 ssleep. Here Is the official list of the bureau chiefs and of ficials in the Navy department made by Secretary Daniels: Chief bureau of navigation, V. Blue, South Carolina Chief bureau of ordnance. J. S.Strauss, Virginia. Chief bureau operations, W. 8. Benson, Georgia. Chief bureau steam engineers, R. 8. Griffin, Vir ginia. Chief bureau construction. D. W. Taylor. Virginia Chief bureau surgery, W. C. Bralsted, Michigan Chief bureau supplies. 8. McGowan, Houth Carolina. Commandant marine corps, C. Bamett, Marylan (United States Naval academy). Judge advocate general. R. Mclean, Tennessee. Chief naval Intelligence. J. II. Oliver, Georgia, Hydograplier, T. Washington, North Carolina. Aid to secretary. D. W. Wurtsbaugh, Texas. 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. Twice Told Tales Money Talks. Times are a trifle hard In the cotton belt Just now and money Is a little scarce.

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 belongs. 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.
