Reprimanding a captain of the artillery who
had been found guilty of assaulting a private
soldier and beating him Over the head with a
heavy pistol. Major Oeneral Wood refers to the
affair as "one of those regrettable occurrences
which bring discredit upon the service." The
language of the commending general of tbe army
la hardly sufficiently strong to properly charac
terize the offense. General Wood showa his in
tercut by his action In holding up the sentence
of tbe court-martial, which recommended that
the offending captain be reduced ten files in his
standing, as being totally Inadequate.' In an
organliatlon such as the array, where the offi
cer has complete power and authority over the
private, It would seem that a ' captain who
allowed bia temper to lead him into attacking an
enlisted man bad thereby proved his utter unfit
ness for command. Self-control Is the first qual
ification sought in a good leader, and In this case
it seems to be entirely lacking. Fortunately few

Wanted Health Department Consolidation.
The trying situation presented by tbe unu
sual prevalence of contagious disease In Omaha
likewise In other cities emphasizes the need
for us to mobilize our sickness-fighting forces
by consolidating all our health machinery under
one board of strategy and one general.
As things now are (and this Is not finding
fault with anyone on tbe firing line) we have
the conflict and confusion ot divided authority
and scattered resources. .Under the health com
missioner's direction the city Is supposed to look
after sanitation. Including quarantine and dis
infection and emergency cases. The county,
with its county physician, and his assistants, Is
supposed to take care of tbe indigent sick and
maintain a county hospital for strictly charity
patients, but with very limited activities. Still.
a third authority, fixed In the school board, has
control over health conditions in the public
With the best of Intentions, It is impossible
to have these three branches of tbe good-health
army concentrate their fire without duplication
and waste of ammunition, and tbe Inevitable
tendency is to invite dispute over cases in tbe
"twilight gone," which might properly belong to
each or all of tbem.
The movement abould be started at once, and
should not stop until tbe goal is reached, to ef
fect a complete merger of all the health, hospital
and sanitation machinery which our taxpayers
support In order to get the full benefit of the
effort exerted and tbe money spent.
Interference With Neutral Traffic.
Sir Edwin Grey's speech In Commons on the
British policy of dealing with world's commerce
under war conditions easily convinces the mem
bers ot Parliament, and very likely will appease
tbe country, aa the people over there are just at
present eagerly pursuing any Justification for
tbe course adopted. It is not likely to suit tbe
people of tbe United States no well, nor is It
probable that the views ot the British foreign
minister will be adopted; in this country as
finally settling the question. Sir Edwin Grey
approaches the toplo solely from the standpoint
of what is better for Great Britain in ita position
as ruler ot the seas at peace and a rather per
plexed belligerent in the present war.
No complaint has been made from this side
that the blockade cuts off enemy traffic. Thai
is to be expected. What ia really objected to Is
the interference with traffic between neutral
ports. The right of neutrals to traffic freely
has never been questioned, and even the Brit
ish cabinet admits it to be fundamental, but 'u
practice has sought to abrogate It. Holding tbat
strictly neutral traffic Is subject to interference
la a peculiar extension of tbe principle under
which the right to visit and Search has been
established. .It is not supported by the practice
of tbe United States during the Civil war, al
though tbat ia referred to continually by the
British cabinet in ita communications and other
expressions on the point
No objection will be raised if tbe Allies
blockade a Dutch port or a Scandinavian port
that is dealing directly with Germany. What la
seriously objected to is the Interception of traf
fic Of neuWals between neutral ports. To admit
the correctness ot Minister Orey's present posi
tion is to concede the ancient British boast, "no
flag but by permission floats." i
Shipping Bill and Politics.
- President Wilson indicates his purpose of
pressing again the .administration shipping bill,
which failed at the last session of congress.
Borne changes in the measure have been tenta
tively outlined, one being that under the new
plan the government will build and own the
ships, and leaae them to operators. Assistance
to builders will also be prorlded. under condi
tions that will give the federal government the
service of the vessel in event ot war. In the
main tbe features ot the measure that were so
objectionable are retained.
The urgent necessity for the measure at this
time is hardly apparent. American shipyards
are all busy, and none will take a contract for
delivery short of two years. Therefore, unless
the bar against foreign-built vessels Is removed,
the president's pet measure will be ot little serv
ice and It It be made possible to buy ships abroad,
the money will be spent In foreign shipyards, a
course tbat would not altogether be foreign to
democratic administrative practice. Aa to build
ing the merchant ships in the government navy
yards, naval vessola authorized two years ago to
be constructed In these yards have not yet been
laid down. The shipbuilding Iclustry waa never
so prosperous aa at present, prices were never so
high and vesnels never sold ao re tdlly. A project
recently broached, that our government buy the
German ships interned at New York and other
American porta, developed the fact that not only
do the German decline to sell, but that they are
busily constructing more ahlpa.
Tbe president's Insistence on. his program
suggests that he la trying to make political cap
ital out of a situation brought about by the war.
A far more useful program would be to provide
for the extension of tbe government navy yards,
to increase their capacity.
Despite the extra millions needed to finance
preparedness, ' democratic economists are net
passing up a chance for congressional pork,

T la a beeutlfur alght to see genlua at play. I saw
I such a alght the other night, and It convinced me,
or would have done so If I had needed to be con
vinced, that Fdlann's definition of genlua, aa nothing
but "hard work,, stlck-to-lt-lveness and commrfn
sense," la utterly wrong, and can only be regarded at
a modest disclaimer.
The Incident occurred on a railroad train. It was)
a cold night and the frosted windows resembled
squares of sparkling white paper. Just ahead of me
waa a little boy, who might have been 10 years old.
though he looked too tiny for 1. notwithstanding thj
big spectacles that he wore.
He was facing me, seated with his father and a
younger brother. The whitened glass caught his at
tention, and a dreamy look came Into his eyes, anJ
then, alowly, his right hand waa lifted and poised be
fore the pane. One could see an idea shaping Itself
In his mind.
Then Ma forefinger touched the glasa and left
mark, meaningless for all but himself. Fevers 1 rapid
strokes followed, making other marka, all equally
unintelligible to an onlooker. Sometimes the slender
little flngrr hesitated, and remained poised for halt a
minute, moving this way and that in the air, aa If n
measure were being taken mentally. Then It wo.ild
fall with decision and a sharply defined black line,
or spot, would appear.
It waa several minutes before a few swift co-ordinating
strokes suddenly revealed the plan that had
from the beginning been In the boy's mind, and now
everybody around sat up and took notice.
On the frosty background stood forth a human
face, striking, expressive, true to nature, grinning,
humorous a caricature In which the exaggeration of
the tinea waa only such aa an experienced artist would
have used, so that the whole effect warmed the pas.

of appreciation, admiration and astonishment. Whis

were craned, people got up to look from across the
In a word, genlua had suddenly proclaimed I'
presence in that prosaic place; had, after Ita manner,
applied Ita magic to the first materials that came to
hand, and Immediately mediocrity bowed to It on all
sides. There were two Intelligent-looking Chinamen
on the oppoalte side of the car. and their delight was
pleasant to see. Genius crosses all race lines and ap
peals to unlveraal human nature. Oud Confucius him
self would have smiled and applauded If he had been
Meanwhile the boy waa unaware cf the admiration
he waa awaking; his attention waa absorbed in what
he waa doing, and he waa doing It because he couldn't
help It. A spark of divine creative fire that made a
Rubens, a Itcmnrandt, a Raphael, a Tenlcra, a Michael
Angelo, a Hogarth, waa burning In him, and It turned
the cold rime Into a picture that made the spectators
forget the chill air and drew them together In the
cosy warmth of human sympathy,
Of course the little artist must have had Instruc
tion the certainty of his strokes attested that; but It
wag equally clear that toe force operating was born
In hla own soul, a free gift from nature, and not the
result of "stlck-to-ltlveneas" or simple "hard work."
For genius all work (In Its line) , play, and all play
After a while he drew another no less effective
picture beside the ftfst one, and for half an hour he
was the same unconscious master in that car, exer
cising a mysterious power over all minds. Then the
train stopped at a station, the boy's father helptd
him on with hla little overcoat, and he disappeared
from many admiring eyes In the outer darkness.
Immediately afterward a slouching young fellcw,
with a half-burned cigarette hanging from the corner
of his mouth and an air of "up-to-date" Impudence
and unlntelllgence, flopped himself Into the seat that
the boy had occupied, cast an uncomprehending glance
at the drawings on the window, flung hla head drunk
enly against it, and with a swoop of his bat obliterated
the creation of genlua. , '
It Is better that genius should be a irlft and
an acquirements. A world full of nothing but geniuses
would be uncomfortable, If not uninhabitable. All men
are created equal In their right to life, liberty, and
the pursuit of happlnesa; but they are not equally
gifted. Yet all have gifts of some kind, and the secret
of happiness Is to find out what your particular gift
la and then develop It to the utmost.
Vou may have talent. If not genius; and talent,
which la peculiarly subject to the benign influence
of hard work, often leads to far greater success (of
the kind that la moat widely esteemed In this world)
than genius can attain. Fo when you see genlua don't
let It awaken envy in your aoul, but take your ahar

Llaht om Scarlet Fever Sltaatloa.
OMAHA. Jan. 17. To th Editor of The
Bee: I am In full accord and harmony
with the health office and heartily en
dorse the views ot the medical profes
sion that all precautionary measures
should be taken to check tbe spread of
soarlet fever In the olty and every mcana
at their disposal should be applied to
stamp out. the disease, which at present
seema to be prevalent In Omaha, but It
seems to ma that the figure aa given out
by th health office either need revision
or aa explanation la due to th public.
According to th "official" statement
when th commissioner met with twen
ty-five Invited physicians to discuss the
scarlet fever situation in Omaha, the fol
lowing figures were given out by tbe
One hundred and eighty-two houses are
under Quarantine. ....
Fifty-two patients are housed In the
Emergency hospital on lower Doualaa
street and twenty-four are convalescent
In the temporary hospital on Lake street
and 1.700 children are at home and not
Now let ua analyse the figures. One
hundred and eighty-two houses are quar
antined. Allowing four person to a
house and presuming that all four are
afflicted with acarlet fever, which la by
no means th case, we would have T2S
easea of acarlet fever In the homes.
Fifty-two additional caaea are in the
Emergency hospital on lower Douglaa
and twenty-four are convalescent at the
Lake street station, which would give
ua the sum total of SO case of scarlet
tver in Omaha,
Th health office make an additional
fetatanrwnt that 1.TO0 children are kept
away from achool and are at home. Th
office ef the superintendent of Instruc
tion, who keeps a strict account ef all
ease of scarlet fever, a reported from
the health department, reports, however,
enly ninety-four case of scarlet fever
among school children from January 1
until January XV It can readily be en
that out of th 1.700 tor en cause or an
other kept away from achool, only ninety
foar have scarlet fever; th balance, or
nearly the balance are afflicted with
"seerttl" eeared to attend school (where
they would be safer than roaming la
th streets, standing moving picture
Th whole mass of figure given out
by th health department Is a terrible
confusion, conflicting with each other and
contradicting on another. Tbe long
sought Information, the persistent clamor :
or tn puouc for the true condition oi
facta, the real status of the scarlet fever
situation In Omaha are, after alt, a terra i
Incognita and tbe public la In the dark
today as to the true condition of the so
called "epidemic" as It was before the
"official" figures were given out.
