Plate tot a Big Reform. ','
The order for postoffice co-operation with the
federal reserve banks in the new check-clearing
project suggests that there are other placet in
our government administration where an immense
economy could be effected by taking full advan
tage of the postal facilities instead of adhering
to costly old-fashioned methods merely because
they have been inherited from timet gone by. Thit
it particularly true in the mafter .of ' o-enrinjr
papers connected with court processes.
The federal reserve bank it going to let the
postoffice make check collections at points where
there are no member banks to do the work and
charge for the service the usual rates for postage,
registry and money transmission. In federal
bankruptcy cases, the mailt are now employed to
give notice to creditor! but in our state courts,
from top to bottom, we are still sending out
bailiffs, constables and sheriffs to "serve" sub
poenas, citationi and summonses and add ridicu
lous feet and mileage claims to inflated cost bills,
outrageously loaded down in other items at well.
Thit it what makes litigation so expensive as to
become almost a denial of justice to the poor
man and to make many people forego their legal
rights rather than invoke their remedy at law.
There it no good reaton whatever why a
subpoena or a tummont or other ordinary legal
paper thould not be "terved" by the letter carrier
in his usual rounds at pottage rates. The result
ant savings each year would mount into the mil
lions of dollars and the new way would be at least

A far-reaching reform like thit could not bt
accomplished without legislation nor without put
ting a lot of people out of their jobs and conse
quently arraying them against the needed legisla
tion. Naturally the various bar associations would
be expected i to take the initiative in bringing
antiquated court methods up to date, but, if the
record of other reforms It' our guide, they will
never do it until ttirred to action from the out
tide. A popular demand, however, can be made

In a general way everybody un
derstands the war order business of
the country it Immente. Scattering
figures of isolated order and est!'

producers fortifies common , belief.
Few realise the unprecedented agre
gate of the business, surrounded at It

the veil and gathered from' authentic
sources a showing of staggering in
dustrial wealth flowing from Europe'
struggle, i ' ' ' .m.'-' '
The total of verified war order
placed in thi country east of Chi
cago to date foots up $3,000,000,000.
Beside munition the figures include
machinery, locomotives, blanket and
other product required in prosecut'
ing war, Twenty-four corporation
account for $1,000,000,000 of the ag
gregate order placed up to February
1 of this year, and five of them booked
order ranging from $100,000,000 to
$300,000,000. The bureau of foreign
and domestic commerce place the
' value of munition shipments to date
at $444,000,000, which I only a darter,'

The flareback of the British blacklist for

Entente Allies infinitely more harm than wilt re

I only one phase of the, affair.' Firm involved
in the British boycott had long been aware of the
displeasure under which they were resting, and
publicity could not render their situation any
more embarrassing. To notify American gen
erally that certain of their, fellows had been pro
scribed is not at alt likely to increase tympathy
or support for the British, but will surety arouse
resentment that must affect relation between the
countrie for many year. , The fact that in some
degree' British action is predicated on knowledge
gained from letters' Intercepted in passage on
neutral ships will not Improve , the feeling.
American neutrality has been Of Immense service
to the Entente Allies, and why it should be
strained as it has been by the blacklist is beyond
comprehension, even of those who are most fa

' American History and the School.
When General Leonard Wood went before the
teacher assembled in New York at the conven
tion of the National Teachers' association, . he
spoke very plainly On some matters that are close
to army men. One of his pregnant point 1 thus
reported in the New York Times; ,j .
; History i too superficially taught here.
How many of our children leave school with a
knowledge of the fact that we have never
fought a war without aid when We engaged a
first-class power? We have altogether too
much of the Fourth of July style of oratory.'
all too much of the type of man who apeak of
a million scringing to arms between sunrise
and sunset. We have been sitting up nights for
, inree weens, io see ju,uuu men spring, and, It is
a very heavy spring.
' The truth of thi observation is what makea
it weighty. It i no credit to our Intelligence that
children,-while at school, are given a distorted
idea of what actually occurred, but it it a fact
that only the most meager bits of our true history
are furnished them. For example, almost every
child toon learn of the brave word: "Million
for defense, but not a cent 'for tribute I" and
cherishes them always as typical of American
spirit .But how many of them, even after at
taining maturity, ever learn that when those
words were uttered the congress had no money,
and no mean of getting any? How many of
them ever learn of the experience of Franklin at
Pari, of Adam in Holland and of Lee in Spain?
They need to be taught thi, and alto to learn as
much about the battle of Bladenaburg at they do
of the battle of New Orleans. '
Patriotism wilt not suffer if the child at school
be taught the whole truth about his native coun
try, and It be impressed upon him that his first
duty is alwaya to hit country.' The liberty he
lives under wat bought by blood, and can. not be
maintained by wordt alone. j
Scripture at Cipher Code. ' ,
The convenience of the Bible it exhibited in
Ha ute ts a cipher code, citations of passages be
ing addpted by missionaries in Turkey to convey
information of their situation to their country'
men in America. Thia it not the first time that
Holy Writ ha performed auch service, its lan
guage frequently having served to carry secular
a well spiritual information. Had the Turk
been as familiar with the Holy Scripture a they
are with the Koran, perhaps the new would have
been held up. The episode ha peculiar inter
est in Omaha, for it recalls one witty passage at
the Methodist General Conference here in 1891
Bishop Fowler, who wat presiding, had some dif
ficulty in controlling Editor James M. Buckley,
who wa pressing hi point with unusual via-or.
Dr. Buckley finally emerged with a reference to
the first part of the citation from the Psalm
quoted by the missionaries. Like a flash, Bishop
Fowler came back with the second clause, and the
shout of laughter that went up from the delegates
u (till ringing through Methodist circle.. Fa
miliarlty with the Book of Book it serviceable
elsewhere than in religioua services.
According to the superintendent of the New
York Anti-Saloon league, $200,000 is being raited
to promote the prohibition campaign in South
Dakota thit year, He doea not give the figure of
Nebratka't allotment, but. on a corresponding
population basis, the prohibition campaigners in
this ttate are entitled to tt least $500,000.

New York Tuner
By Titter Boterwmter.
IT IS interesting to note that the competition
for the nomination for president at the prohibi
tion national convention at St. Paul thit last week
narrowed down between J. Frank Hanly and Will
iam bulzer, the former having been once governor
of Indiana by election as a republican, and the lat
ter having been governor ot New York as a typi
cal Tammany democrat. Of course, a nomination
on the prohibition ticket this year, as in other
years, is tor advertising purposes only, Dut it
is supposed to add to the prestige and stimulate
the demand for the man as a public speaker.
Gpvernor Hanly is the orator l referred to m
mv convention reminiscences not long ago in
connection with his speech putting Fairbanks in
nomination for president before the republican
convention of 1908, when his characteristic ges
ture of bringing hit palmt together to emphasize
the point was caught up by the assembled multi
tude for a resounding smack throughout the
Coliseum every time he clapped his hands, with
disastrous results' to his composure and equa
nimity. Governor Hanly has been out here chau-
talking, and it an engaging personality. Un hit
lasi visit, rranic uaincs naa mm as nis guess ai
a luncheon, their acquaintance dating back to
when they were boys together in Illinois. I be
lieve it was developed there that Governor Han
ly's dry record is not a new acquisition.
Not to, however, with Governor Suiter who,
too, hat been a visitor to Omaha and spoken
here at banquett which were the wettest of the
wet. I remember one in particular at which he
wat the ttar performer for a democratic feast
given at the Paxton hotel, where a prediction that
the headliner of the evening would some day as
pire to be the prohibition ttandard-bearer would
have created a near-riot I first heard Sulzer
orate when I haooened to be in New York as a
boy at college, and he wat running on the Tam
many ticket for assemblyman tor his legislative
district. Even then he affected to look like
Henry Clay, whom he outwardly much resembles
if one can judge by the pictures. The last time
I talked to him. he had just been elected governor
of New York and he gave me a cordial invitation
to stop off at Albany and visit him.
The fact that Nebraska is to vote thit year on
f prohibition amendment may make our ttate look
ike good campaigning ground for the prohibition
apcii-uiuucra, inu it wm nut uc surprising it wc
have both Hanly and, Sulzer "in our midst" be
fore it it over.
The fiftieth anniversary of the driving of the
golden tpike is to be suitably commemorated
with a celebration reaching all the way from
Omaha to San Francisco and centering at Salt
Lake City, if plans in preparation are carried
through, and the first step has been taken by the
Utah tenators securing official recognition for
the event While the driving of the golden spike
marked the completion of the first great trans
continental railroad, it waa no more important,
in fact teat important, than the original breaking
of the ground which took place in Omaha in De
cember, 1863, and which thould have had a semi
centennial anniversary observance here three
years ago. The pages of history unfortunately
cannot be turned back, but-I want to record ft
here that I tried at the time to inaugurate a move
ment for a grand celebration of that fifty-year
date, and outlined a program in detail for par
ticipation by ttate and city governmenta and our
local civic and commercial organizations, in which
I endeavored to interest the responsible people in
the Union Pacific, naturally the chief beneficiary
of anything attracting nation-wide attention to
that road. Gerrit Fort, in charge of the passenger
department, caught the point at once and seemed
enthusiastic for it, and President Mohler also
promised S helping hand, but the interest of the
Union Pacific soon suffered a tudden collapse
which, I wat told, was due to the cold reception
accorded the suggestion by Chairman Lovett of
the executive board, who was the real boat, with
out whose sanction nothing of thia kind could be
a go. So the temi-centennial of the ground
breaking, the tangible beginning of thit wonder
ful achievement in railroad engineering and con
struction, which hat revolutionized transporta
tion in a vast empire, thua opened up to settle
ment, passed by with no special attention except
that accorded it by The Bee and other local
newspapers that reviewed the epochal occasion
for the information of their readers.
Norman Wait Harris, the big Chicago financier
who died a few dayt ago, counted friendt all
through this tection, with many of whose pioneers
he was closely associated in hit numerous activi
ties. Although a plain spoken and plain living
man, his special study wat genealogy, and he waa
convinced he waa able to trace a direct lineal
descent to Emperor Charlemagne. I met Mr.
Harrit several timet and once the conversation
had a reference to that subject, and I find the
facta, as he had gathered them with great re
, search and care, set out in hit biography. It was
Charlemagne who, starting out as king of the
Franks, captured the title of Roman emperor as
an additional ornament and claimed to be ruler of
alt humankind, and by hit wife, Hildegarde,
founded this dynasty that is still going on and
after translation to America had in Mr. Harris a
representative in the thirty-ninth generation. Hit
record notet, also, descent in the twenty-sixth
generation from Countess Adelicia, the Fair
Maid of Brabant, daughteivof - Godfrey I, who
married Henry I, king oP'England, and whose
second husband was William d'Albini, second
earl of Sussex and Arundel; and also descent of
the seventh generation from Thomas Harris of
England, who settled in Massachusetts Bay col
' ony in 1630. The late Mr. Harris was intensely
interested in the work of the Young Men's Chris
tian association, to which he contributed gener
ously. : I am not sure that he is on the list of
patront of our Omaha Young Men's Chrittian
association, but it is my impression that he helped
this institution out in the early days when P. C.
Himebaugh was its sponsor.
The Panama-Pacific exposition has Issued a
handsomely gotten-up book which is called "The
Legacy of the Exposition," and explained as "the
interpretation of the intellectual and moral heri
tage left to mankind by the world celebration at
San Francisco in 1915." It is a compilation of
epitomized expressions by various distinguished
visitors and guests as their testimonials to the fair
and itt accompanying congresset and what they
achieved. It is indeed a very tuggestive souvenir
and makes one wish that some such volume had
been prepared and published for our Omaha ex
position, which could easily have spread out
equally as many bouquets and compliments
passed by men and women whose verdicts carry
weight The legacy of our Omaha exposition,
however, was the unexampled record that added
to its artistic success a financial success measured
by the return to the stockholders of ninety per
cent of their Subscriptions which ia a legacy
that speaks for itself.
