Letting Oar Light Shine.
Slowly, yet Impressively, the attitude of
Americans In relation to the world war la com
ing to be understood by themselves, and In time
It, will be appreciated by those whoae interest
Just now leads them to harshly criticize us.
We have been told we are making bad friends
abroad, and that Americans are coming to be
generally hated. This is easily explained as
arising from the fact that we have so far prop
erly declined to become Involved on either side
ol the controverar. but have resolutely held
aloof from any action that might reasonably be
construed as showing favor to one or the other
of the combatants. Yet our participation la
the war has been notable and of incalculable
value to all the countries whose normal activi
ties have been suspended by the conflict.
For fifteen mflntbs we have been feeding the
deetltnte behind and between the battle lines.
Governments of Europe are too intent on . de
struction to heed the suffering of the helpless,
and to these Americans have come with food
and clothing and other aid, that their lot may
be made the lesa precarious and their misery in
this degree lessened. Along the battle line
American doctors and nurses, volunteers sup
ported by American funds, have ministered to
the human wreckage of war. Science and skill
and aympathy have done all that can be done
to ameliorate the desolation and destitution the
older governments abandoned to the care of
Providence that they might press on to furthet
devastating effort.
Along with this philanthropic work has gone
something of the spirit that has prompted It.
Beneficiaries of such generosity do not soon
forget It, and while the Innocent victims of the
terrible war may not waste time In analysis of
the altrulstio impulse that has brought them
aid from the land beyond their dreams, they
will call down a present blessing on those who
have provided for them, and cherish the mem
ory of that help always. . We may be making
conquests of new commercial greatness, may be
extending the sphere of Influence of our cul
tural life and may be advancing in every
attribute of human good. That remains to be
seen. What Is certain is that we have con
quered a wonderful kingdom of humble hearts
through the light of human sympathy we hav
spread In darkened Europe.
Von Papen's Private Correspondence.
. Some Interesting but not at all alarming
disclosures of personal opinion are furnished
by the publication of letters from the private
correspondents of Lieutenant von Papen, late
German naval attache at Washinjgton. These
captured letters are serviceable to the Allies
only as they may be used to foment anti-German
feeling In the United States. Outside of that
purpose, they have no value whatever. Th
language quoted from them Is not startling, nor
does it differ greatly from expressions publicly
made. Lieutenant von Papen was the personal
appointee' of the kaiser, and naturally waa in
close touch with friends of Germany, and par
ticularly with representatives of the German
government In America. It Is quite In keeping
with usual course of events that these persons
should hold and. express sentiments friendly to
the German cause, and that they wrote these
sentlmsnts to Von Papen Is not a cause for
special wonder. The United States Insisted on
the recall of Von Papen because of his alleged
connection with war intrigues In this country.
The information Just sent us from London may
serve to support the action taken by our gov
ernment, but aside from that is not of serious
Life Insurance Farm Loans.
The largest single golden stream capitaliz
ing farm development in the United States has
Its -source In the swollen treasuries of life Insur
ance companies. In ten years their aggregate
Investments in real estate mortgages Increased
two and one-halt times, ranking next to bonds,
In the opinion of the managers, as safe and
profitable securities. The total mortgage loans
of 14S companies on December 31, 1914,
amounted to $1,700,000,000, of which 39 pet
cent was farm security and 61 per cent other
real property. '
The importance of this vast supply of work
ing capital to the newer sections of the west is
show la a report by Robert Lynn Cox, counsel
and manager of the Association of Life Insur
ance Presidents. The most striking fact re
vealed in the report is the commanding lead of
the Mississippi and Missouri valley sections In
the favor of the companies, both In amounts
loaned and low rates of interest. In the north
western group of states Iowa, Minnesota. Ne
braska, the Dakotaa, Wyoming and Montana
the farm loans of the companies total $234,
118,000, or 64.8 per cent of the farm mortgages
reported by the 1910 census in these states.
The average Interest charge ranges from 6.16
per cent la Illinois to 8.S3 per cent In Idaho.
Iowa leada In total of farm loans, $139,511,000,
at an average Interest charge of 6.32 per cent,
and Nebraska aecond, with 162,390,000, at 5.34
per cent. Mr. Cox points out that the interest
late Is determined by land values, not by de
mand and supply, as is too commonly the case.
He neglects to state, however, whether the
moderate Intereat charge includes the commis
sion cost of placing loans, which usually awelli
the cost to the borrower.
The figures emphasise the magnitude of the
task of formulating a rural credit ayatem which
will cut the cost of farm loans and at the same
time supply the billions of dollars required to
take the place of private capital.
"Why not prosecute usurers?" asks Mr.
Bryan In hla Commoner. Well, why not? Th
prosecuting machinery is all In the hands of a
democratic administration, with which Mr.
Hryan was officially associated for nearly three
years. Furthermore the laws againat usury In
Nebraska are quite drastic, and we have a
valiant and vociferous democratic attorney general.
The dawn of a bright leap year for man is
assured. Neckties wrought in the designs oi
rare porcelains or bearing hand-painted replicas
of the masters are coming out for spring and
summer wear, aijordinf sufficient decorative
effect to render the tribe skeptical of proposals
unaccompanied by a checking account.
Getting Together
The Open lor.
Kansas city fttr (prof ): The republlcane have
invited the progressives to "come back throuah .the
open door." The progressives have derided to-go
bark far enough to keep the door open. If the re
publicana accept the progressive' platform and name
a progressiva candidate, the progressives will go
hark through the open door. If the republicans dodge,
it la the purpose of the Cult Moose merely to hold the
door open for other progressives to come out.
Let nraraaea Be Byaoaes.
St. Louis Globe Democrat (rep.)i In short, the
coicnel's message reveala nothing of a political na
ture, commits neither him nor the committee to any
eouree of political action and la entirely free from
offenae to any one who. In hla Judgement, ought n
to be offended. It In another Indication that ha la
disposed to let bygones bo bygones, and to center hla
cnergiea upon an Issue raised by the circumstances
of the present ar, which can be made a party
question only In the extent of Ita application. Whether
this Isaue, which be declares should be above all
party considerations, and, we may hope, above all
personal considerations, will take him Into the re
publican party, remains for circumstances, or him
self, to reveal. It la significant, however, that the
date and place selected for the progressive conven
tion will make the aelf-extlnctlon of the remnant of
the progressive party easy and painless.
Wsst the Coloaet Wasti.
New York World (dem.): The colonel wants war
because President Wilson la trying to maintain peace,
and the colonel's only chance of getting the republi
can nomination lies In his oppoatlon to the president
If some mischance should plunge the country Into
war before tha national conventiona are held, the
colonel would be for tha peace at any price, especially
If he failed In Ms ambition to go to the front na
commanding general of tho horse marines.
Coadltloaal lalea.
New Tork Journal of Commerce (lnd.). The chance
of the national organisation of the republicans re
suming something like Its normal strength will de
pend upon the position taken by Its own leaders and
not upon surrendering to the dictation of those who
threaten to defeat It If It does not submit to their
leadership. What the progressives at the present time
seem moat likely to accomplish, or help to accomplish,
la what they profeaa most to dread, the continuance
of "the .Wilson admlnstration." which they say "has
repudiated the faith of our forefathers."
Chlnafylna- the t'oaatry.
Springfield (Mass.) Republican (rep.): Colonel Roose
velt'a letter to tha progressive national committee
hardly had tha encouragement for the grand new
party which the brethren might have desired. "Purely
partisan conalderatlona" are naturally rather to tha
fore in tha committee's Immediate Interest. But what
does the colonel mean by Insisting "that every man
who Is within our borders shall be an American and
nothing else?" It sounds rather like a change nf
heart In favor of "Chlnaflcatlon." Such a policy la.
deed would be going China several bettor.
A Leap Year Proposal.
Chicago Herald (lnd.): The progressive party
has Just made a leap year proposal to the republican
party In the form of tha declaration of principles
given out by. the executive committee on Tuesday.
The party promises. If not to be "thine forever."
at least agree to a temporary or trial marriage
under conditions substantially expressed In the fol
lowing extracts: "Tha surest way to secure
for our country the required leadership will
be by having. If poaaible, both the progres
sive and republican parties choose the same standard
bearer and the same principles. We pledge ourselves
to approach the consideration of the Issues involved
In aurh an effort without any tieaire to revive parti
san bttterneea." .

A Prayer ta Time at Battle.
One of the oddest prayers ever made waa that
of an old Virginia aoldler at Antletam. He was
lying fiat en tha battlefield and, to quote hla own
words, "the ahot and shell were going over me so
thick that tha whole firmament above ma waa lead
color,, I felt Just then that I was six feet long ani
pretty night four feet thick, and that tha chances,
for me were only two feet better lying down than
they were atandlug up. I made up my mind that
my only aafaty lay In praying. Oh, Lord, good Lord,'
I prayed, "please stretch me out as thin as a shoe,

The Whys af the WIm.
SCOTIA, Neb., .Ian. IS. To the Editor
of The Bee: I read with some Intereat
Hie letter of one Stephens Blttlck In The
Bee advising German sympathisers to go
to Germany. Well, why not Kngllsh sym
pathisers go to England? During the
Japanese-Russian war, almost the unani
mous sympathy of the people of the
Cnl ted Btatea was with Japan, aa against
Russia. Now. In thla crista, much of the
sympathy la with Russia, against Ger
many. Thla. according to geometrical
conclusion places Japan In advance of our
German citizenship.
My father was an American cltlsen. I
was born in thla country, being thus a
natural born citizen of United States. I
ran understand the German language, and
speak It some. I have never lived In any
country except this. But It geta "my
goat" to hear these fellowe call German
sympathizers hyphenated Americana. Why
not call those sympathizing with allies
hyphenated Americans?
We hear much about Kalaerlsm and
German militarism. Why don't these fel
lowa speak of Anglicism and British
navallsm. Does not Great Britain today
rule the sea?
If Blttlck and I were to travel on our
highway, meet a man carrying United
Ptates mall and rob him of his mail sack,
what would be the result? We would
both go to the pen, and surely we ought
to. But the allies have repeatedly taken
American vessels, carrying United States
mall off the high seas though bound for
peutral ports, taken what they wanted of
It, and the result waa the usual, "Wei
shall protest" Blttlck forgot thla.
Blttlck says, "Why don't these German
sympathizers go to Germany and fight
for that country?" Wall, why don't these
fingllsh sympathisers go to their adopted
country and fight Be honest with the
publio at least and tote fair.
A Memorial te a Pleaeev Faaatly.
OMAHA. Jan. l.-To tha Editor of The
Bee: People who are Interested In the
breathing spots of tha city are hoping
that another and much-needed one may
be added to tha number, by municipal
purchase of the Caldwell and Hamilton
"A park" was one of the first objects
suggested for the ultimate destiny of
these combined properties. Nothing could
be more desirable for that quarter of
town, or a more ideal use for the
grounds themselves, which would lend
themselves to It so perfectly and with
so nttle comparative expense, their beau
tiful slopes already so well laid out and
cultivated for many years. For any
other pnrposea. such as the municipal
buildings .that have been mentioned, so
much changing of ' grade would be re
quired, and auch great coat to the city,
that It should hardly be thought of at
all. If expenae is any consideration.
Parks are health-spots aa well as
beauty-spots, and In both senses they
are the agents of public welfare. There
ia no park anywhere In the vicinity of
the Caldwell property. Every large city
has its downtown or central park; this
city has only Jefferson park, which is
but a remote and shabby apology for
one, though It serves Its peculiar pur
pose well enough. It would be an im
mense pity to lose thla splendid chance
of giving the city another improvement
of the kind moat beneficial te Us real
dents and moat valuable te its' own ap
pearance. It would be still more a pity te sacri
fice such a beauty-spot as this might oe
to the purposes of a police station or
even an emergency hospital. Think of
that fine air apace for the region, handed
over to the amoks prducers that already
polaon our atmosphere almost beyond en
durance! (In passing. It might be said
that the municipal Officers, welfare
boarde and all others concerned, would
do the city more good by enforcing ts
smoke ordinances than by any new pro
jects that they can Invent) A library
has been mentioned In connection with
a police station and a hospital. Startling
Ideal Would the patrons of a library-.
women and children largely be expect-d
to enjoy dally encounters with ambu
lances and patrol wagons loaded with
their sad freight and all the Incidentals
to tha program of those two necessary
but grewaome establishments? To one
who loves to make use of a library, the
Idea ia not tolerable. And It Is not te
be supposed that Omaha people wITJ
relish this novel "civio center" proposi
tion. It would seem that their View
should be asked before such a plaa Is
soberly discussed. -
If the city planning board has any In
fluence at all. new la a good time to
make use of It And If they have that
sense of the "fitness of things.- as re
gards city development which we ex
pect In such a boa-o. they will realise
that a park Is the one and only true end
for the beautiful Caldwell property, and
work accordingly. "Caldwell park!" or
"Hamilton park!" either one a splendid
name, and a memorial te a great pioneer
family of tha city.
Any worda from people who believe
In parks as a factor in city Improve
ment may help In that direction, and
uch people are urged net te wifhold
