Working- Oat An Army Bill.
Chairman Hay of the bouse committee on
military affslrs announce the com mi Up has a
compromise measure to provide for the defense
needs of the country all ready to report. Only
approximations of the bill's provision are given
out, so that Judgment as to Its efficiency must
be deferred for the time. It 1 admitted, how
ever, that the continental army plan, advocated
by Secretary Garrison on recommendation of
the War college, I entirely abandoned, and
that the nationalization of the National Guard
Is proposed. Whether this can be successfully
carried out Is yet to be determined, although
the required legislation is permissible under the
constitution. With the proposed increase in the
regular eHtablinhment. a steadily increasing re
serve being provided for, and the new organiza
tion of the National Ouard, a first line force
of 4 75,000 Is contemplated. This is quite a

Two further compromises are ahead of the
measure, one with the senate and the other
with the president. The bouse and senate must
dovetail their defense plans, and then the meas

army bill Is Just entering on Its real difficulties.
It is suggested the president will submit to the
substitution of state for national militia. No
real occasion exists for worry on this point. Mr.
Wilson would not have allowed Secretary Gar
rison to resign, had he not changed his mind
on the continental army plan. So far, the ad

City Lighting Plant and Plant.
That Omaha Is again confronted with a po
litical campaign may be easily gathered from
the talk about city lighting contracts, munici
pal ownership, and all that goes with them.
Contracts are up In the air, proposala and
counter-proposals are being bandied back and
forth, and all sort of maneuvering is under
way to' befuddle and play upon public senti
ment to gain political advantage regardless of
the public service.
But wby should the council ask for propo
sition for street lighting from the lighting com
pany?. Why should not the city decide what it
wants and formulate Ha own proposition and in
vite the lighting company or any other com
pany to say at what cost It will do the work?
If it is believed that the people are ready
for a municipal lighting plant, the council now
ha all tho authority needed to set in motion
the machinery for either acquiring the present
plant, or constructing a new one. All the com
missioner have to do, it sincere, who are pro
fessing to favor a municipal light plant, I to
frame and adopt the proper measure and ask
for a vote of popular approval on a bond proposition.
The one chief argument of every municipal
ownership advocate ia that in no other way can
the public utility service be taken out of poli
tics. If so, the way to get the question out of
politic Is to put it up squarely to the people,
and let them determine what tbey want to do.

Strategic Value of the Valley.
The sending of a radio message to all part
of the United Bute, from the Rock Island ar
senal as a central point ought to be of far greater
service than establishing the possibilities of
using the amateur wireless operators of United
States as an adjunct to national defense. It
should emphasise strategic value of great Mla
sisalppi valley, and the importance of it con
trol in event of war. Our friends on the sea
board, both east and west, have hysterically be
moaned their exposed condition, and wo have
been told the vulnerable heart of the United
States He within an area along the Atlantlo
coast scarcely larger than single western state.
So far as industrial and financial importance 1
concerned, this may be true, but some other
factor must be considered in the solution of
Between the Alleghanles and the Rockies
stretches an empire of unequalled value, on
whose fecundity all the rest of the nation must
depend. Without It. the United States would
shrink to nothing. This la the Mississippi val
ley, for the possession of which an invading
army might be expected to make the moat des
perate efforts. ' And It Is wholly exposed.
It mast not be taken for granted that strate
gists of foreign nations have given their at
tention solely to the possibility of attack on one
or the other of the seaboards, or that they look
upon poseesslon of the factories and banks of the
country aa the key to American eonquest. Thla
would credit them with little real military abil
ity. Nor should our eastern rrienda put too
great stress on their charge that the middle west
Is indifferent to their conditions. People are
thinking on this side of the mountains as well
aa on the other, and the middle west is waking
up to the situation.

HAT I the Middle West? The question la In-
eplred by an apparent revival. In connection
with the aueatlon of defenee. of the feeling
that the Middle West haa what Bageot called a
special "cake of euatom." Even President Wilson
aoemed to fall In with thla when he spoke during hta
tour of reporta that large Middle Weatern communi
ties were opposed In a special way to hla program,
and reminded Kansana of the fltthtlng traditions of
their section. Hardly alnee the disappearance of the
economic questlona of McKlnleys time haa the press
spoken ao often ot the Central state as a region
apart We hoar from an assistant aecretary of agri
culture who has been touring the section that its
attitude la traceable to the inhabitants' rough and
ready belief In the possibility of Improvising almost
anything, and to their naive responsiveness to
Bryan's Insinuations about the scheming of muni
tion maker. We hear again of the crude but alncero
Idoaliiin of the Middle West, and of Its practicality
conflicting qualities. Yet every reader of weitarn
papers knows that opinion on "preparedness" does not
abruptly become another color between the Alio
ghenlea and the Missouri. Nor does It on other nues
Uona. It la pertinent to Inquire how many Illusion
may not exlat In the general ranging of the char
acter of the Middle West, and what harm they may
not do to national feeling.
It Is a facile error, aa regard "prepwredneea" and
many other sod si, literary, economic and political
questions, to believe that the Middle West will think
aa one man; that a whole section In tho heart of the
continent will ahow the reaction of special Interest
and prejudloe. Because the prairie hsvea wide
geographle unity, a common history, many common
commercial and agricultural Interests, a common cul
ture, and until recently an homogeneous population.
It la easy to think that they embody single alms and
a definite personality. But thla overlooka the fact
that the section really represents a complex of Inter
ests and Idnae and a tendency to variance of opinion
as marked aa any In America. The population la no
longer homogeneous. The difference between rural and
city elements in various states 1s pronounced, and
about the large cities the foreign strains are consid
erable and Influential. To take political Inclinations
alone, those of Kansas and Nebraska, of Wisconsin
and Illinois, are as different aa those of Kansaa and
New York. Missouri la a determinedly "wet" as
Kansas is determinedly "dry." Dwellers on the
Platte regard Indiana aa an eastern state. It la In
evitable that "preparedness" or any other prominent
question should be given keen discussion from dif
ferent angles. A section that diseagreea on Its own
questions will disagree on national questions; and Its
disagreement will be much the same as those of
other sections. In one aenae, the west Is likely to
display even more difference of opinion than older
communities). The "cake of custom" la not fully
stiffened there; there la more pride In Individual
opinion and less crowd-reliance upon tradition and
The United States haa a physical extent ao great
that It has no real geographical center, but Its deeper,
immanent unity la clear enough for all that To say
that the Middle West differ little In essential things
front the remainder of the country la, after ail, to
combat only one tenaclou tradition. The section
does cherish Its youthfulness and ail the qualities
which youth connote. From Chicago to Omaha It
doltghts In Its reputation for a certain precocity, and
finds it flattering to be Judgwd according to it Like
some of Its cities of prodigious growth, it la proud of
the contrast between Its accomplishment and the
brevity ot the time required. It present the world its
political Institutions, Its literary products. Its Judg
ments on current affairs, with the expectation that
they will be considered not Intrinsically, but aa the
work of an Inspired and amaalngly energetlo stripling.
Nine-tenths of its belief In a greater practicality and
Idaailam than New England's or those ef the Middle
states or the south rises from Its belief In Its youth.
The eaat fails la with this, so far as It does, mainly
because It permit It to maintain It old patronising
attitude. But even thla tradition la fast dying out, aa II
being realised that It la false and that It U
unhealthy for both eaat and weat The west is ap
preciating that It la actually mature, and that all It
does la to be measured oa an absolute basis, for H

No one wishes to rub away the proper differences
In trait and feature which have slowly developed In
different localities; uniformity, the destruction of
variety, means the loaa not only of color, but ef
vitality. It is well said that we want one spirit, but
diversity of gift. But Walt Whitman, In a famous
passage of a generation ago, expressed hla conception
of the true solidarity of the country. "Not long ago,"
he wrote, "I waa down New York bay on a steamer.

He spoke of the part he hoped would be played in
thla compacting by a "great, throbbing, vital Imag

we have not had. But he spoke also of the country's
common laws and Institution and of "the grim
welding of our national wars, the steal tlea of rail
roads and all of the kneading and- fualng prooeese'
or our material and business history; and we know
how thee have played their part The great reason
why sectional differences are not large In America la
that the sections have been settled by much the

wrong to try to draw aharp Unee of demarcation.
Twice Told Tales
Milk aad gewrlet FVrrer.
OMAHA. Pb. B.-To the Editor of The
Bee: Having read In your paper the tele
gram of Nathan Straus, the father of
the pasteurisation of milk In the United
States, In which he states that scarlet
fever and other contagious dlseaae epi
demics are usually traceable to the milk
supply, I feel that a reply should be made
to same. Every precaution and Investiga
tion that Could possibly be made to safe
guard the cltlsens of this city from an
epldemto of any contagious disease
through its milk supply has been and
will alwaya be provided for. I. aa head of
the milk Inspection service, can say with
out fear of contradiction that not one sin
gle case of scarlet lover now prevalent in
our city has been or could be traced to
the milk supply.
I realise that In dtles like New York
(Mr. Straus' home) pastuerlxatlon of Ita
milk supply has accomplished wonders
nd haa materially reduced the death
rate among Infants, aa well aa reducing
the cases of contagious dlseaaes usually
traceable to milk, but New York City

ferent states and it would be next to Im
possible to Inspect and keep as close a
watch on the dairies supplying their milk
as It la In Omaha when we have log
dalrlea within a radius of six miles and
under constant observation and Inspection.
For one I appreciate the warning Issued
ty Mr. Straus, but do not agree with
him that pastuerlxatlon Is absolutely es
sential to aafeguard a milk supply, Aa an

per 1.000. while In our city, where ap
proximately only SS per cent of the milk
Is so treated, 47 per 1,000 was the rate.
You can rest assured. Mr. Editor, that
If at any time the milk supply of thla
city showa any slyns of deteriorating In
quality I shall be the first to raise my
voice and fight hard and long for all the
safeguards necesaary. If our milk sup

"I admit that I did stop the opertlon

and that I did stop the exhibition of a

gambling devices, vicious and sugges

of the Chamber of Commeroe were them
selves operating a gambling devise upon
our streets and refused to stop until
they were arrested, claiming they had
legal advice and knew what they were
doing. I am sorry that this Interfered
with the finances of the Chamber of

that revenue or finance for any purpose
should not be procured tn this manner.

To Lydla E. Pinkham Medi
Women who ore well often ask "Are
Mis letters which the Lydia E. Pinkham
! !ouicine Co. are continually publishing,
irenuine?" "Are they truthful?"
" Why do women write such letter t "
In answer we say that never have wo
rublished a fictitious letter or name.
Never, knowingly, have we published
hn untruthful letter, or one without tho
full and written consent of the woman
tvho wrote it.
The reason that thousands of women
from all parts of the country write such
prateful letters to the Lydia E. Pink
bam Medicine Co. is that Lydia E. Pink
Lam' Vegetable Compound ha brought
health and happiness into their lives,
ence burdened with pain and suffering.
It has relieved women from some of
the worst forma of f emale ills, from dis
placements, inflammation, ulceration,
irregularities, nervousness, weakness,
stomach troubles and from the bines.
It is impossible for any woman who
is well and who
l.as never suffered
t) realize how these
roor, suf ferine wo
men feel when re
stored to health;
their keen desire to
help other women
who are suffering as r
t ley did.
