Does Nebraska Bar Progress ?
Progressive people of this progressive com
monwealth will surely be pained to learn that
Nebraska, along with a dozen others, has been
listed as one of the "states which bar
progress." This latest ignominy is heaped upon
Nebraska by "Equity," the special organ of
the direct government methods, which finds
thin "absurd bar to progress" In the fact that a
constitutional amendment submitted to the
voters Is decided not by a majority of those
voting on that proposition, but by a majority of
those voting on the entirely different proposition
as to who shall be elected to some public office.
"Equity" kindly notes the exception for us that
ti ls does not bold good on amendments by
popular initiative, for here simple majorities
rule, and there being no limitation on resort to
the initiative, what difference It makes that legislature-submitted
amendments still require a
ft 11 majority of the total votes Is not clear.
But, as a matter of fact, Nebraska has
progressed farther than any other state In mak
ing It easy to change our constitution. Does
not "Equity" know that by legislative Jugglery
and Judicial interpretation we have made it so
that all straight ballots marked in the party
circle are counted "yes" for amendments en
dorsed by nomlnsl majorities in the party
prlniary although cast without the slightest in
tention of voting on any amendment at all? If
ease of constitution-changing Is the test of
progress, then Nebraska Is not only maligned
when listed among the "states that bar prog
ress," but we are entitled to first award for a
progresslvenesg which no other state in the
union can match.
For ourselves, we confess we would rather
have the progress of our state determined by
some different measuring rod, and we submit
tr at any fair measurement of progress will rank
Nebraska nesr the head of the column in the
sisterhood of states.
Blockade of Neutral Forts.
Great Britain now proposes the formal ex
tension of Its "order in council" to Include an
effective blockade of neutral ports, as well as tha
declaration of a war zone wltnlwhlch vessels
of all nations are subjected to the treatment ac
corded blockade runners. In plain terms, the
purpose Is to stop, If possible, all trading be
tween neutral countries and Germany. Undei
the newer conditions, Great Britain would be
come In fact the dictator of the high seas and
the director of the world's commerce. The
Quadruple Entente s Piles have been carefully
sounded on the proposition, and Frame and
Italy hesitate over engaging In the enterprise.
The practice of the United States during the
Civil war is relied upon by Great Britain to
support its suggestion. This practice may af
ford a pretext, but hardly a precedent. Eng
land had openly and flagrantly espoused the
cause of the Confederacy, and was almost at
ally of the rebels. The blockade of the ports
of Nassau and Matamoras was necessary, be
cause they were admittedly depots for military
supplies for the rebels in arms against the
United States. No such conditions exist today.
Against this proposition from Great Britain maj
be placed the rerent disclosures of the London
Dally Mall, which made a thorough investiga
tion, and reports that shipment of foodstuffs
and other supplies from British to Scandinavian
porta far exceed the normal requirements of the
destination countries, and which openly
charges that the surplus of these shipments
finds its way into Germany.
John Bull has plenty to do at home for a
time before he entirely assumes charge of th
world's affairs.
Submersible Milk Wagons.
It is now solemnly avowed that the untersee-
bote is also available for service as a milk
wsgon, the object being to provide some method
whereby the blockade of German ports by the
Allies can be evaded and a food supply for
babies In the central empires be assured. Of
course It can, and with the coming of the sub
mersible milk wagon, maybe we'll hear the last
of the farmer who forgot to roof his cows, or
the milkman who forded the creek on the way
to town. But what of Neptune and his dolphin
team? Will they patiently abide this newest
Invasion o( the water god's realm? All sorts of
indignities have been visited on the denizens of
the deep, but they have not' yet been subjected
to the inconvenience so patiently borne by land
lubbers, that of the matutinal visitation of the
milkman. What will the Nereids and the
Oceanlds say, when their games are interrupted
by the whizzing past of the submarine milk
cart? Their comfort must be considered, for
they are venerable, and entitled to a little
respect, although, to be sure, they should not
be permitted to entirely block the way of prog
ress. Let us have the undersea milk route at
once, but let it be so maintained as to only
moderately Interfere with established customs

Aimed at Omaha
Tork Democrat: Attorney General Reed's Intima
tion that the 8 o'clock cloelnf law la violated In
Omaha cornea as a atunnlng aurprlae. It leads us to
believe that the antl-clgaret law Is violated here In
Tork, that every now and then some one violates
the law against burglary, and that every now and
then some publlo official may actually devote to
private practice the time that belong to the public.
Doud City Press: Omaha I to have a real hay
market, a system of trackage for hay. official In
spection and grading, official record of aalea. etc.
Because of lack of such a market, little hay has been
sold directly In Omaha. Hundreds of thouaanda of
tons of hay have been shipped right through Omaha
to Chicago or Kansas City. The Union Stock Yards
company of Omaha haa been buying much of 1t hay
on the Kansas City market, thus paying freight for
the haul from Omaha to Kansas City and back.
Plalr Democrat: An Omaha woman I" paying her
husband alimony, bat that Is no reason for some fel
lows saying "yes" when a arl asks, "Will you be
mine?" or words to that effect.
Albion Argus: Mayor Charles Bryan released ten
Inmate of the Lincoln city Jail from durance vile
In honor of Chrlstmaa day. In thla he emulated the
example of Mayor Jim of Omaha, who lets out acada
of Jail convicts who have been convicted of misde
meanors. Neither mayor can pardon convicted crim
inals, but may forgive those condemned of close
communion with John Barleycorn.
Hastings Tribune: An Omaha women Is aaid to
have the lockjaw. We don't believe It. Whoever
heard of aa Omaba woman who could not talk con
tinuously? Tork Republican: Omaha people aeem to find the
occupation of holding; each other up after night quite
profitable. If an outsider refuses to play tha game
they shoot him.
Newman Orove Reporter: The Omaha Bee ha
discovered the meanest man on earth. Ills wife
needed a set of teeth ant had no money to buy
them. An Omaha dentist was going to give her a
set for a Christmas present, but her husband arose
In his might and refused to allow her to accept
them. Some one ought to pull all of that fellow's
teeth and then make him live on rubber boot heels
for the balance of his life.
Beatrice Rxpresa: The Nebnaeka Bar association,
now In aeaaion in Omaha, refused to go on record
en the question of state-wide prohibition, ruling out
a resolution dealing with the matter as being wholly
"leading. Immaterial. Irregular and having nothing
to do with the ease at Issue." No exception waa taken
to this ruling by any of the attorneys present.
Twice Told Tales
Holden's Advice on Cora.
Prof. P. G. Holden recounted in Omaha the
result of a test ot the value of selecting seed
corn, carried on so extensively as to thoroughly
establish the service of the practice. From s
field of 8,000 acres an increase of eleven bush
els per acre was secured, the only change in
methods being the thorough test of the seed be
fore planting. This is only a portion of the
mass ot accumulated proof that no farm labor
Is more profitable expended than In the careful
selection and thorough testing of seed corn.
Elaborate experiments and thorough research
has proven that corn breeds true to type every
Farmers know this, or, at any rate, they
have been given the information many times.
By following the advice of the experts, the
farmers have Increased the average yield by
many bushels to the acre, but have not as yet
reached the limit of possibilities. Every fanner
Is Interested la this, and all should unite In ap
plying the easy test necesssry to determine the
germinating qualifications of the seed corn,
after it has been picked because of Its desirabil
ity for other reasons. This is the time of year
to do this work, so that -when planting time
comes, the seed that goes into the ground will
be known to be dependable.

"Not asleep, eh returned the conductor, with a
dubious expression. "Then, what were you doing with
your eyes shut?"
"It waa because of the crowded condition of the
car," explained the passenger. "I just hate to see
women standing up." Boston Herald.
He Was Some Sick.
Oeorge Sidney, the actor, tells a story, for which
he confesses a particular fondneaa, on one of the
players of his company in his Blsiy Issy days.
"My friend was hopelessly addicted to his cups,"
aays Mr. Sidney, "and nothing that we could say
to him ever seemed to reform him much. But some
times we eould get him on the wag-on for a couple
of months, till temptation came toe strong, and he'd
go back to his sins with a terrible bump.
"Once we had him sober for four or five months,
ao that when he went on hla spree It hit him a
lot harder than uaual. He disappeared Just after
the performance, and when I came Into the theater
the next day he waa lying across the floor of my
dressing room. He was moaning and groaning, and
for a minute or two X thought I'd have to send for
a doctor.
"I lifted him up, however, and carried him In
side. Tou're feeling pretty sick, old man. aren't
you? I said, sympathetically.
" 'Sick, Oeorge? Mck? Why. thousands have died
who were not as sick as I am now.' "Indianapolis

What Form of City Oovernmentt
OMAHA. Jan. 1.-To the Editor of
The Bee: I note your editorial yesterday
on "City Manager and the Citizens."
Your editorial and Mr. Allen's rresence
here naturally bring up the question of
whether Omaha should consider adopting
the city manager plan or really the more
general problem of what la the best plan
of city government.
Under the home rule bill, we are now
free from entanglement with the state
legislature and can adopt any plan we
please, provided we can "get together."

open to anyone, under the caption, "What
Form of Government Should Omaha
Adopt?" If the arttcJes are short and

this subject within reasonable limits of

GRAND ISLAND. Neb.. Jan. I8.-T0
the Editor of The Bee: May I not In
the columns of your paper express my
hearty appreciation of the sublime and
lofty thoughts of Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
Just as Shakespeare read the thoughts
and passiona of men for all ages and
covered every shade ot life, from the
depth of despair, the lurking nature of
revenge, the allurement of ambttlon. the
sgony of remorse, and the gloom of
doubt, so that we behold life ss It la. A
fitful fever, a slough of despondency
wherein no ona knows whom to trust.
So, on the other hand, thla gifted woman
has penetrated the religious hopes and
desires of humanity and has condensed
them Into a creed where those who trust
In It have at least a faith of perfect
peace. Undoubtedly the storms of con
troversy. In which so many others are
toased about, they - can welcome all men
as brothers in faith, for all of them,
even the most hostile, contribute to sup
ply the atones of the broad foundation
upon which their philosophy Is built.
Scientific discoveries and philosophic
Inquiries touch not this religion. It Is
built upon the laws of nature; evil and
good bring their rewards respectively,
but, thank the Lord, the Idea of either
eternal pain or eternal happiness la ab
sent. "Heaven must begin here on
earth and we must save ourselves by
thoughts and acts of love." Is this not
reasonable? The efforts of those who
have been postponing their state of
heaven or harmony to another world
should be to strengthen the bonds of
friendship on earth, to widen the range
of human sympathy, to seek that love
In one another which they have hitherto
been required to seek In otber future
worlds. Best of all. as one reflects on
these thoughts, the world takes on a
different aspect. He sees the thief who
did not openly repent snd he wonders
at his fate at the hands of one who
prayed for forgiveness. He sees those
less fortunate than he. those brought
up In homes of squalor and filth, and he
says that they, too, are embraced in the
divine law of love. Mrs. Wilcox's faith
In Immortality Is a bulwark of protec
tion. It tells those who think to escape
from their wretched condition (often
thoughts) by entering another world.
that it Is not to be. The grave win not
destroy personality and it must be made
here or there. On the other hand, to
those who hare really believed, "the
kingdom of heaven la within us," the
thought of the grave has no terror. Like
a child, weary at the close of day, will
he go to sleep In the bosom of the all-
cheering mother earth. "For the dis
appearance of a single life Is but a ripple
on the ocean of humanity and humanity
feels It not." but the mind, his person
ality, will live. He meets hla doom
calmly then, bowing to the verdict ot
fate or nature with unwavering resigna
tion and fearless calm.
