Between Bandits and Submarines.
Secretary Ianslns; very delicately and
adroitly distinguishes between outlawry on land
and at pea. He finds a marked difference be
tween a bandit and submarine, remembering, no
doubt, that In the eyes of "watchful waiting"
these self-same murderous Mexican marauders
have in turn been revolutionists, pstriots, ser
vants of humanity, before finally degenerating
Into their present condition of proscribed out
laws. The secretary's defense of the adminis
tration must be satisfactory, for the president
absolutely declines to switch his "single-track"
mind on the matter of protecting Americans who
for the moment are unfortunate enough to own
property in Mexico, or have other Interests that
call them there.
Though recognized as de facto president and
"our great and good friend," Carranza has not
as yet set up a stationary government. The
protest from Washington may reach the migra
tory capital of the "first chief," but this gives no
assurance that the murderers of American citi
zens will be punished or stopped from commit
ting more murders. Despite the resonant declara
tions of the Carranza clique, that Villa and all
his companions have been put outside the pale
of the law, tbe probabilities are that this latest
outrage will be added to the long list of similar
occurrences, accumulated since Mr. Wilson took
office, and allowed to stand as "unfinished busi
ness." Under our present foreign policy, Mexicans
may with Impunity defy all law, International or
otherwise, and only European nations are called
to account, though with more words than results.
The Pinch of Cold Weather.
Those of us who enjoy the comforts of warm
clothing and warm houses while the mercury is
diving far below the zero point on the thermom
eter, should not forget the pinch of cold weather
on those not so favored.
In no community of this richly blessed land,
certainly not la Omaha, should any one be left
to endure actual physical suffering and hard
ship from the severity of a storm.
Fortunately we have In our city a goodly
number of charitable organizations that may bo
depended on to come to the rescue and to re
double their efforts in times of stress, but these
organizations, to do the work that devolves upon
them, require adequate support from the public
aa a whole. It Is, therefore, up to the people of
Omaha to respond generously to the calls of the
charity workers and Institutions when the win
ter's pressure upon them Is the hardest.
latest Figures on War Cost.
Here are the latest figures on the toll col
lected by the dread war demon up to the first of
the current year, as computed by Theodore H.
Price, one of our highest statistical authorities,
from the most reliable data and estimates:
THB WAR COHT IN LIVES: Last October, Briga
dier General F. V. Greene, United States army (re
tired), placed the killed at 2,000.000. Two months later
Colonel Hennseler, the Swiss military statistician, es
timated that 8.000.000 men had lost their Uvea These
ara the lowest and highest estimates of the f a tall t lea.
Figures compiled by varloua other authorities lead u
to conclude that, at least S.600.000 men are dead and
1,600,000 more have been rendered Incapable of produo
tlva labor s a result of the war. This Is a total of
7.000,000 lives. The economic value of a productive
man Is estlmsted at $2,500. The cost of the war through
oeam or incapacity may therefore be estimated la
dollars at SIT.MO.OOO.OOO.
began the seven great powers have voted credits of
over 135,000,000.000 and have negotiated loans amount
ing to over SS.OOO.OOO.OOO, while their gold reserve has
advanced from .$111.000,000 to W.THI.600,000 for the
Quadruple Alliance and from $1,057,300,000 to $1,410,000,000
for Austria-Germany. From these figures and others
the direct expenditures thus far are estimated at $60,
00.000.000. The Indirect expenditures and waatage at
$10,000,000,000. Total money cost. $80,000,000,000.
These figures Uke no account of the pension lia
bility incurred, the loss of earning power by men la
the field and the higher coat of living In war times
ualtlea and money 1oa together the war has probably
coat at least up to date. It Is lmposslhl
to say what portion of this sum would have been saved
or spent In some other way If the war had not oc
curred. The expenditure for unproductive luxuries hes
undoubtedly been curtailed. The war-lnduced economy
of Europe is variously estimated at from $5 to $30 per
capita. Europe has a population of about
A per capita economy of ( cents a day would be US
a year. or about equal to the estimated cost of the
war thus far. It Is this elusive factor of economy that
makes the real cost of war so difficult to calculate.
We continue to believe that the waste and unproduc
tive expenditure of war do not much exceed those of
peace and that It Is very doubtful whether wara really
cost anything except human life and Buffering, in
which respect this cost Kso high that it ought to
be prohibitive.
Whether or not we accept Mr. Trice's con
clusion, these calculations should serve to help
answer a lot of questions we are all asking ourselves.
Mayor "Jim" for Hanncny.
One of the high lights of the recent demo
cratic dinner at Lincoln waa the glistening dome
of Mayor "Jim," looming over all and shining
through the clouds of smoke, the while the
leader of the triumphant and militant hosts of
Dahlmanltes loudly sounded his call for har
mony. "Jim's" for the ticket, he says, no mat
ter who's on It, and for the platform, no matter
what It holds. This latter Is tbe cheapest prom
ise ever made, for nobody, not even the late sec
retary of state, pays any attention to a demo
cratic platform.
Mayor "Jim" also told the newspapers of tbe
state what a nice warm place they can go to. In
tending perhaps to secure a permit from his
friend. "Billy" Sunday, on which to admit the
editors to a reserved section In that sulphurous
settlement. But he said nothing of the rebuffs
he has had from traitorous Bryan, nor of the
failure of the ungrateful Hitchcock to attach him
to the federal pay roll. All these things, pre
sumably, are forgiven and forgotten. "Jim" has
changed his spots, and Instead of being a riotous
cowboy in the coming campaign, he Is to be a
meek and sleek old pussy cat. dozing by the ra
diator. Yes he Is not!
Just the same, the democrat who hopes to
make a showing la Douglas county had better
see to It that he haf the Dahlmanltes mollified
before he starts.
How to Become a Scientist
- Oairett P. Berries.
Satisfactory guarantees of moderate conven
tion rates have been given by St. Louis hotel
men. Participants in the democratic ratification
meeting, however, should uiske sure of a return
AVOfNU man has suited me how hs can devote
his life to science. It la a singular questior,
somewhat as if lie had asked: "How can I
become an cnlgnecr, or a doctor, or a farmer?" Still,
the young man Is evidently In earnest end puxtkd
how to berln. and 1 have Just happened to pick up
an old hook, a favorite of nine years sgo, which fur
nishes an answer that may Interest many others
besides this questioner.
It Is a book now "out of print." I believe, though
It ought to be in print forever. It Is John Tyndall's
"Glaciers of the Alps." No man ever wrote English
more clear and fascinating than that of TyndalL
Although this book deals with nclenoe. It la litera
ture, with something more substantial behind It than
can be found behind most of the stuff called litera
ture today.
The answer that the book gives to the youn
man's question Is to be found In its unconscious
revelation of Tyndall's mind. It is In the form of
an object lesson. Kor Tyndall science was the high
est Order of romance, lie was still a young man
himself when a visit to the slate quarries of Penrhyn
awoke in him a paaxlonate desire to know Why sin re
stone splits off In slabs.
Thousands of workmen and superintendents hal
bfen familiar with this peculiar property of slate nil
their lives, and had never thought of seeking a rea
son for It. They were content with saying that It
waa the nature of slate not to cleave. If Tyndall
had not already devoted his life to science he would
have been doing It the moment he set out to find
out what caused the cleavage of stale.
Ilia search led him from the quarries of Penrhyn
to the glaciers of the Alps. Glaciers are immenxe
"rlvere of Ice." which, although they remain aolld,
slowly flow down the mountain sides. Tyndall
thought that he could find the slate stone's secret
In the glacier Ice, which was subjocted to forces
similar to those which, he believed, had affected the
"We are not here concerned with his attack on
that problem, but with the practical answer which he
made to our question. In the Alps he found himself
In the midst of astonishing things that filled Mm
with awe and delight, but read his descriptions and
you will see his Inquiring mind soaring above all the
wonders to explore their causes. The spirit of poetry
la with him. but the passion for knowledge overmas
ters all else, so that be produces no rant of more
verbiage, but the clearest pictures of what he sees;
drawn upon a background of reason.
The first morning that he awoke In his hotel near
the foot of tho great white Jungfrau, he started off
alone, clambered to a glacier, the first he had ever
stood upon, snd In spite of the awe that . he felt.
Immediately began noticing and recording the pecu
liar sounds and motions of the avalanches that were
thundering about him.
When he heard the echoes reverberating among
the mighty peaks, admiration of their sonorous and
majestic beauty did not prevent him from explaining
to himself, and afterward to hla readers, how thty
were produced. I venture to say that there Is not
anywhere else so Informing, and at the same time
charming, account of the nature of these phenomena
aa that which Tyndall wrote after hearing the tow
ering Wetterhorn fling Its echoes from cliff to cliff,
and modulate them by repetition until they seemed
to be receding Into Inflnte distance. It waa science
aiding poetry to Interpret nature.
He goes and looks at the terriflo cataract of Han
deck, where. In mid-descent, the white Aarlenbarh
darts at the yellow Aar, transpierces It, and then
both "plunge together like a pair of fighting demons
to the bottom of the gorge," but. unlike the ordi
nary tourist, he sees and tells about the big stones
that go down with the water, and when he sees a
linbow spanning the boiling gulf he finds out and ex
plains why It has a peculiar shape.
In crossing the Hochloch to Fend he Is assailed
by a hailstorm, and notices that each hailstone Is a
froien cone with a rounded end, whereupon he is able
to point out how a hailstone may be shaped oy
forces similar to those acting upon a meteor.
He wanders everywhere over the mountains, as
cending formidable peaks like the Flnsteraarhorn
and Mont Blano, or penetrating Into the secret re
cesses of the wildest glaciers and always seeks until
he finds the explanation -of the phenomena that con
front him.
As Interesting a passage, of three or four pages,
as any book contains Is that In which Tyndall de
scribes hia astonishment at finding his compass, oa
the Rlffelhorn, polnlng one way for south and the
noon sua Indicating Just the opposite direction. It
waa the Instinct for knowledge which led him Im
mediately to explore the face and top of the moun
tain with his needle, until he had demonstrated that
lightning bolts had turned the rocky "horn" Into a
great nest of magnets, with their poles pointing In
all conceivable directions.
If you wish to devote your life to science, do a
Tyndall did; don't stand fast in mere wonder, but
mix your brains with what you see.

OMAHA. Jan. 13.-To the Editor of The
Bee: The unnecessary. Inexplicable, cruel
wai- l well down In the second year of
prosecution, with no sign of abatement.
ut with preparation on a more stupen
dous scale than ever for spring activity.
It offers fresh menace to ua In the sink
ing of the Persia, and the lessons of
ps st torpedoing of our vessels and those
bearing Amertcsns, are losing their force
with the domlnent offender, and the
European-Kgyptlan phase of war pres
sure and prosecution bids fair to Involve
the Aalatic-Indo peoplea at an early date,
plunging them In the maelstrom of strife.
Unconscious seem the actors In the most
stupendous war of history that there Is
an evil power Impelling them on, and
butting their heada together like the ac
tor In the Punch and Judy shows, where
none appear above the curtain, and the
blows and butting and furor attendant Is
all that ts visible to the eyes of behold
ers resting upon the puppets. It has been
pronounced n "cruel, senseless war"
more than a year ago by one of the chief
actors In It, and Its cause proclaimed un
known and undetermined. It seemed so
to the public and why waged so sense
less and unfruitful as to shame leaders
In it?
Io men reckon with a Satanic power,
the Invisible, Irresistible, "prince of the
tower of the air" referred to by Paul In
Kpliesians ;10-11, where he enjoins "put
ting on the whole armor of Ood. that ye
may be able to withstand the wiles of
the devil," adding In the 12th: "For we
wrestle not against flesh and blood (hu
man beings), but against the principali
ties, against powers, against the rulers
of the darkness of this world, against
spiritual wickedness In high places."
With this exhibition before us, the
acknowledgement made by one of Its
highest up actors that neither he nor his
felIows know why they wage war, how
reasonable the conclusion that they are
the puppets of the Pupch ant Judy show
of the war arena, being handled by that
invisible power, "the prince of the power
of the air," the devil, who was In con
trol of the kingdoms of this world from
the earliest history of man, from his be
trayal down to the temptations of Christ
on the Mount when he offered to surren
der then, but not having been accepted
waa left in control and would bring on
this cruel, senseless, unexplained war, or
Armageddon of the last days. He Is the
adversary which Christ came to put
down and redeem man from. He Is the
"seed" which was promised, and yet did
not appear until four days of the week
typified were gone, and when two more
must expire before he could heal and
bind up the amttten Jews as a nation
again. Hose a 6:12. But with the fifth
day and the sixth almost added to the
four thousand ("one day Is with the Lord
a a thousand years") the completion of
the type of six working days Is furnished,
and we are In the Armageddon which
shall usher in the seventh of that type,
which Is referred to in Hebrews 4:4
Peter In the second eplstlle, third chapter,
conveying to mankind the "keys of the
kingdom" which were given him by
Christ In Matthew l:l-, and the keys
now unlocking the Kingdom of Christ
out of the ruins of the "kingdoms of this
world," alt of them tottering to their
fall, that they may be supplanted by the
kingdom of Christ, his mlllenlal reign,
where the swords and the plowshares of
this upheaval will be beaten Into the
plowshares of peace for 1.000 years, and
nations not learn war any more. There
remalneth therefore a rest (Sabbath keep
ing) for the people of Ood." It Is on the
earth, and our leader was made flesh,
went from earth Into the holy of holies,
and returns to earth to be King, and
this gospel of the kingdom he proclaimed
three years, and commissioned us to
proclaim It. and the reward awaits his
near return to set up His kingdom.
Mem Needed for Pabllo Servlee.
OMAHA. Jan. 11-To the Editor of The
Bee: It has often been said, and with
truth, that if ever the American people
lose their liberty, It will be their own
fault. For they have their government,
from their local to the national, In their
own keeping. And It is Important that
they pay attention as strictly to their
local affairs as to their national, for the
local government Is nearest to their direct
personal Interests.
This is the year for the nomination and
election of all officials In this county
and state. The primary election, this
year, is only about three months off. All
flllnga for nomination at that primary
muat he made within about two months.
Tet little has been said In the public
press regarding thia important news.
In response to the numerous friends
who have looked to me to file again for
the state senate, I wish to take thia
means of aaylng that I shall not do so.
For any business man, whose business
requires his own constant attention, and
who Intends to be trus to his trust, can
not afford to give up practically six
months of his tlms, paying his own ex
penses, for the salary of a member of tin
legislature. I cannot afford the burden.
Yet I believe that the people ought now
to he seeking out some creditable men to
file for place on the legislative tickets of
both rattle. We may be sure that spe
cial and certain interests, who are always
interested in state legislation, are now
busy lining up their forces. Kven now,
in every senatorial district of this state,
these interests are busy. When you re
call that It ia only Important for them
to control about seventeen votes in the
senate lit order to do pretty much as
they like, you will see how Important It
Is for the people to "look a leetle out."
These Interrsta do not pay much atten
tion to the lower house, because they
know that a majority of the aenate, after
all. controls. If the people themselves
default In their plain duty to themselves,
mill they have any Just complaint against
certain private Interests who take ad
vantage of the apathy of the people?
There are twelve members of the house
and five senators to be elected from
Douglas county. We have plenty of good
men mho ran afford and who ought to
file for these places. They should be
urged to do so. L. J. Qt'INBY.

Kansas City Star: Every Hansen who

tion of the Kansaa prison at Ianslng is
a disgrace to the state, but the governor
Inst winter vetoed an appropriation for
sanitary cells for the prisoners because
the state was so poor. The Kansas
schools are dropping to second and third
rate places among the schools of the
country. Its public roads are mud holes.
