The Associated Retailers of Omana have out

have made the first move In that direction.
There Is Just one way to attain the goal, know

the different business and civic organisations

The Associated Retailers went on record for
a new Union Depot three years (ago, perhaps
prematurely then, but Omaha's subsequent ex
pansion and Improvement bave now made the
new depot the next big thing in order. The
need of a modern and adequate terminal for
passenger travel, in and out of Omaha, has been
accentuated by the new hotels, new stores, new
banks, new office buildings, new business
blocks, by the systematic advertising of Omaha

possibly be applied.

Governor Capper's Outburst
Governor Capper of Kansas haa stirred up
the animals by hla parade of the overshsdowlng
wealth of the Sunflower state, with the likeli
hood of concerted action on part of other west
ern governors to refute his Inflated claims. Just
why the greet states of the west should enter
upon a campaign of competitive bragging about
themselves passes understanding. The Kansas
people are welcome to any satisfaction they may
get out of It. Their habit of boasting Inordi
nately about everything that pertains to the state,
from prohibition to tornadoes. Is Inherent, a
characteristic of the primitive people of the
realm of the Jayhawker. Those who are more
advanced In the ways of civilisation are content
to let "a stranger's mouth praise" the achieve
ments of which they are proud. Nebraska mod
etly asserts that It has a place In the sun ahead
of both Iowa and Kansas. We rejoice In a de
velopment that neither of our neighbors ever
knew, but we do not keep the world awake at
nights shouting about it, nor do we deliberately
deceive ourselves by reckless exaggeration.
State advertising Is a good thing, properly ap
plied, but the truth will not stand for compara
tives and superlatives to the detriment of neighbors.
