Learning' Our Lesson from the War.
The' greatest lesson being taught Americans
by the war in Europe is not that we are unready
to fight as battles are fought nowadays, although
that is esteemed of great importance by serious
thinkers. What we most needed to know, and
what is being driven home to us in a most im
pressive manner, is our unthrift in other ways.
We not only boast of our enormous aggregate
wealth and prosperity beyond conception, but we
prove it to the outsiders at least by the prodigal
waste we make of it. The wealth that is used is
enough to astound our neighbors, but they are
the more amazed by the dissolute manner we
have of letting millions disappear that might be
saved by just a little more care on our part.
For example, we are running short on potash
and its derivatives or mineral allies. A southern
investigator has just discovered that for every
one hundred tons of iron produced at the Ala
bama mines six tons of cyanide of potassium is
allowed to escape in fumes, to a value at normal
prices of $2,400, or more than the worth of the
iron. This waste is only a feature of the general
recklessness with which our great industrial op
erations have been carried on. Many times of
lateAhe great loss due to neglect to recover the
values from the coal tar and the petroleum resi
due has been detailed. One of the recent dis
quisitions on some of the things we are finding
out called attention to the fact that a certain
quality of sand is sent from Nebraska to Ger
many, there made into quartz glass and returned
to this country, and that the price of this glass
has mounted sky-high since the war, because its
importation is cut off. Yet the raw material for
that fiiass is found within a few miles of Omaha.
Organizing our industries for war is well un
dertaken, but a far more important business
would be to organise them for peace, to the end
that something of the enormous neglect now
practiced be turned to use and the country be
given the benefit of the wealth that is now dissi
pated in fumes to pollute the air or refuse to
foul the running streams.
Kindness to Anima.li.
The humane societies and other similar organ
ization! are emphasizing today their lesson of
kindness to animals and endeavoring to drive it
home in various wayi. The admonition, "Be
kind to animals," is, of course, merely one form
of urging consideration of the feelings of others,
particularly of those who may be unable to en
force such consideration for themselves, Yet
being kind, instead of wanton, to animals is for
the benefit of these creatures no more than It is
for the person who is thus considerate. The
man or woman, or boy or girl who is kind to ani
mals will develop a kind disposition in all rela
tions and command a deference and respect al
ways forfeited by display of meanness or cruelty,
Getting; the Churoh Branches Tog-ether.
Conferences of three great religious denomina
tion! during the last week listened to reports to
the effect that progress la being made along the
linei of reunion of branchei of the icveral sect!
that parted company about the time of the civil
war. It seems that the adjustment should not
be so very difficult, but while the original cause
for division has disappeared, or should have,
other points have developed on which separation
hinges. Unity of belief in the great fundamen
tal! on which Christianity rests is not sufficient
to meet all the requirements of the doctrinaires.
Point! of theology over which dispute has raged
for centuries still serve to hold apart In this
world those who devoutly believe they will all
meet in the next. Simple followers of the faith
are slightly disturbed by this condition, save as
they are taught to accept the sectarian conclu
sions that have multiplied creeds. These are the
outstanding features of the general situation. The
solution rests with the preachers, who are the
chief disputants, and who confess themselves
able to agree on the central dogma, but not on
kits radiations. The action of the Baptists, the
Methodists and the Presbyterians in their present
sessions may be leading forward to the great
union of all creeds, and a consequent impetus to
the general expansion of their faith, but the
progress ie slow.
The Oase of Jeremiah 0. Lynch.
President Wilson's intercession on behalf of
Jeremiah C. Lynch may save his life, a boon
granted by the British government to the presi
dent of the United States. But this does not lift
the responsibility of American citizens to respect
the government under which they live. Our laws
do not countenance treason or rebellion at home,
and cannot protect our citiiena abroad when en
gaged In endeavor to overthrow a government
with which we are at peace. Protest against
summary punishment is proper at all times, and
the necessity of proving the case is plain. Rela
tions between the United States and Great
Britain are already strained, and this newest com
plication will serve to increase the embarrass
ment of the State department in its action.
Telephone Wire Tapping-,
A serious qaestton of vast public concern is
forced to the front by the common practice of
telephone wire tapping on police orders in New
York City. The practice goes back twenty yaars
or more, and written orders of 3)0 wire taps are
of record. The number is much binher. Until
a year ago the telephone company admits hav
ing granted the privilege to others than the au
thoniits, the abuse reaching proportions wliich
loivfJ the company ta require police orders be
fore allowing the lap. In etch instance the
police demanded tHe tight to listen in on the

MY NARRATION of my national convention
experiences stopped with the nomination
of William Jennings Bryan at Chicago in 1896,
from which he emerged to wage his "first battle,"
destined, however, not to be his last. When four
years had rolled around I witnessed his second
nomination, this time by acclamation, in the 1900
convention in Kansas City.
It happened that the allotment of press tickets
for that occasion had been particularly liberal and,
having one to spare, I took E. J. Corniah with
me. He had just returned from helping to re
nominate McKinley at Philadelphia, where he
was a delegate, and had come back with an inocu
lation of convention virus that led him to snap
up my suggestion that he go along and take in the
gathering of the democratic clans. Although
Kansas City had worked wonders in rebuilding its
convention hall, after seeing it burned down just
a few weeks before, it was at that time miserably
lacking in hotel and restaurant facilities and gen
eral accommodations for a big crowd. The old
Midland and the Coates House were the only two
pretentious hostelries, and Cornish and I had to
bunk together in a rooming house not far from
the Coates and pick up a bite to est wherever we
could get it.
I remember that at Kansas City, because of
its near proximity to Nebraska, the demand for
tickets was the burning question of the hour,
but there were ways found and tricks played that
took nearly every visitor inside the charmed cir
cle, notwithstanding the fact that the approaches
were roped in for blocks and guarded by cordons
of police and successive sets of ticket inspectors
at every turn. I was to be joined there by Louis
Bostwick, whom we put into business as staff
photographer for The Bee. Bostwick had gone
ahead with Colonel Roosevelt on a Rough Rider
expedition into Oklahoma and was due in Kansas
City on hia return by the opening day of the con
vention. When he did not show up I loaned his
ticket out and passed him up for the day, but, lo
and behold, just before the noon recess here was
Bostwick corning up to report to me at the press
"How did you get In without a ticket?" I
"Just walked right in," said he.
"Well," said I, "I don't believe I can get your
ticket back for the afternoon session, and I don't
know just what to do about H."
"Never mind," returned Bostwick, "I'll get in
again the same way I did this time."
And, being in Missouri, he proceeded to
"show me" by performing the stunt a second time
before my very eyes just walking along with his
camera in his hand, shaking off policemen and
doorkeepers and ticket-takers merely by putting
on a front as if he belonged there and were just
going about hia own business.
Although the Kansas City convention made
the customary noise, it was really comparatively
tame because the pyrotechnics and demonstrations
were so palpably artificial and also by reason of
the absence of most of the big men of the party.
Congressman W. A. Richardson of Tennessee was
the chairman and Senator Tillman of South
Carolina "elocuted" the platform, but the most
aought-after notables were "Boss" Croker and
David B. Hill
Alt the arts of the stage carpenter and calcium
light man were here brought into play. At the
proper point in the chairman's apostrophe to "our
peerless leader" a plaster bust of Bryan, swathed
in the Stars and Stripes, was ostentatiously borne
to the platform and set upon a pedestal and un
veiled, whereupon the band played and the dele
gate! yelled and the spectators shrieked. When
the anti-imperialism plank of the platform was
reached the scenery-shifters pulled a rope that
released a huge flag tightly rolled up on the ceil
ing rafter abova the platform and let it drop. On
the white stripes was painted in large letters the
campaign slogan, "The constitution and the flag
-one and inseparable now and forever." And
I noticed all the ushers and attendanta at the
same instant rushing 'on signal to the space be
hind the seats, where barrels filled with small
cambric flags Imprinted with the same inscription
had been stored. These flags they seized pell
melt and carriad out to the arena and to the gal
leries, distributing them to everyone within reach,
and in tha twinkling of an eye the great hall was
transformed into one great sea of these waving
motto-bearing banners. This was the big demon
stration, and it was speeded up from time to time
as enthusiasm waned until it finally wore itself
Occasion for another spectacular outburst was
found after the reading of the section expressing
sympathy for the Boers, then waging their war
against the British in South Africa. Webster
Davis, a Kansas City lawyer with a reputation for
fervid oratory, who had resigned as assistant sec
retary of the interior under McKinley to cham
pion the canse of the Boers, was raised to the
rostrum and proclaimed his convertion to the
democratic faith, with a promise of his support for
the ticket. But he was so excited and confuted
that he completely destroyed the effect of his
climax by mixing up his namei. "I stand upon
this platform," he shouted, "and shall support
William J. Brennmgs." At which the laughter
overwhelmed the applaute.
Let me recall here that the speech putting
Mr. Bryan in nomination at Kannat City was de
livered by Willis D, Oldham, who i 1,4111 one "f
the delegates at-targe, recently rlrcted. hut this
time on the anti Ilryan ticket, Oldham's speech,

SECULAR SHOTS AT THE PULPIT.

will gradually do it even if they
Springfield Republican: Jews,
Catholics and Protestants to name
them in the order of seniority of
their religions are united, through
representative clergymen, in a pur
pose to help the campaign for 100,
000 members of the Red Cross in
New York City and 1,000,000, in the
United States; "united on the firing
line of love and duty;" as Rabbi
Joseph Silverman puts it.
Buffalo Express: Six presbyteries
have joined with that ot Cincinnati
in asking the Presbyterian general
assembly to put the New York pres
bytery out of the fold. Leaders of
the accused body express their con
fidence in being able to prove that
their orthodoxy is sound. The gath
ering at Atlantic City thia month
promises to be one of the most in
teresting the church has had in years.
Philadelphia Record: The munifi
cence of the late Mrs. D. Willis
James of New York gives an im
mense impetus to the efforts of three
religious bodies to make some de
cent, though small, provision for
their disabled and superannuated
ministers. To the appropriate boards
of the Presbyterians, Congregation
alists and Methodists her will leaves
$750,000 each for the permanent
funds now being raised whose in
come will afford old or invalided
clergymen small pensions. Besides
the three denominstions among which
Mrs. James divided two and a quar
ter millions, the Episcopalians and
the Baptists are now raising perma
nent funds sufficient to give disabled
ministers something like $500 or $600
a year. In most of the cases, we be
lieve, the sum aimed at is $5,000,000,
but one very large denomination is
undertaking to raise double that
amount, In some cases it is the plan
to allow a pension of less than the
maximum and that is certainly
modest enough for a disabled min
ister who has not reached the age of
65 or 70, the allowance being propor
tioned in some measure upon the
clergyman's length of service.
