The admiring public is challenged to behold another dazzling stroke of finance, championed by our democratic senator from Nebraska, by which Uncle Sam's treasure box is to be filled without taking any money out of the pockets of his own people. Sharp inspection, however, discloses that the concoction is nothing but the old virus of re pudiation put up in a new bottle freshly labeled 'Tax upon sales of foreign-owned securities." What Senator Hitchcock would do, as ex plained in his own paper, is to clip off one or two per cent of all American bonds or stocks sent here by foreigners to be cashed in or disposed of and. of course, if we could take one or two per cent, we might just as well take ten or twenty per cent or, at a pinch, confiscate the entire holding. The inherent dishonesty of the proposed trans action becomes plainer on closer analysis. For years we invited foreign investors to send their money here to help develop our resources and finance our industries and the property repre sented by their securities, as well as the earnings of that property, is being taxed here the same .as our own investments. When the foreigner sends his stocks and bonds back he merely asks repayment of the money he loaned us and he nat urally expects to get full value or at least to get the same price they would bring to any other holder. On past investments the Hitchcock amendment would be equivalent to repudiation of whatever percentage the tax might be, while for future investments the foreigner would either re fuse absolutely to risk his money on such a haz ard or he would discount the tax in advance and deduct it from the original price. A good way to test the soundness, or rather unsoundness, of such a proposal is to reverse it. Suppose, for example, the Canadian government, after encouraging us to invest money in Canadian industries, suddenly notified us that we could not get our money back without handing a slice of it to the tax collector, Our Canadian securities, supposed to be worth a hundred cents on the dol lar, would at once be shaved by the amount of the tax and our only recourse would be to let our Canadian cousins know that they would not catch us as their victims again. The Hitchcock foreign-holdings-tax scheme differs only in degree from that more ancient democratic financial "cure-all" that was going to enable us to pay off one-hundred-cent debts with fifty-cent silver dollars. That 16-to-l free coinage repudiation was, aa all know, rejected and so will be this new-fangled repudiation. Keeping Omaha Clean. One of our correspondents touches on several weak spots in the general plan of municipal house- Keeping in umaha, but is unjust in at least one statement The newspapers of Omaha, whatever their many other shortcomings may be, have never conceded that the city is kept aa clean as it should be. Thit doetn't apply entirely to the matter of sweeping the downtown ttreets, which are well enough cared for, but it hat reference to the gen eral scope of cleanliness. Garbage and household refuse it not properly cared for now, and never wat. Thit hat been referred to many times in The Bee, and the council has been adopt tome method that would bring better serv ice and more satisfactory results. Discussion of the topic never got very far in the council cham ber, for lotne reason, and the unaanitary and un tatitfactory, wasteful and annoying method that now prevails is perpetuated out of all reason. When will the council be ready to approach thit vital question and properly dispose of it? . Make the Streets Safer. Enough of reckless driving ttill persists to render certain of the city's streets extremely per ilous. In spite of warnings and examples, thought lest or inexperienced autoista continue to drive at high speed along thoroughfares where ordinary prudence would tuggest caution at least. Omaha's police force' it not numerous enough to provide the close tupervitlon that it needed, to much must be left to the automobile driven to look after. By far the greater majority of these exercise the care that it required, but some of them speed along re gardless Of their own or other's tafty. tome way mutt be devited to reach these, for the ttreets of the 'city must be kept tafe. Accidentt tuch aa that of Tuesday are avoidable, and that they do happen it proof that somewhere tomething it radically wrong. The prudent automobile owner ought not to t.ffer became of the reckless ness of another, but his great chance to avoid blame lies in hit helping to suppress the menace. , Another Big Railroad Problem. . .. According to the Railway Age Gazette, the trantportation linet of the United Statet are facing a titration quite at important in itt pot libilitiet at that of the ttrike. It is the thortage of cart for, hauling: freight The figures given show that on August 1 the the largest and the reported net surplus the small- em in ten years. In other words, the railroads now have their rolling stock workinir ..n time than ever before. The manager! assert they nave pienty ot equipment to move the business, if it it efficiently handled, and appeal to shippers to assist them in keeping the cars moving. Thit state pf affairs interests the public only to the extent that it.thowt the railroads are doing atl the business they can do. and at k. rates recently permitted, and to thould be prot- .p-iuut,,. anc propiem tor the management is how to keep the linet ur to a nnint ,h th... ... - hisj ion give the service required. '- Publicity and Democracy. , Publicity for Nebraska ia a good thing, and t is well understood that the at. t,.. i-.j the legitimate advertising to which it it entitled, nu wnicn it tuny deserves. In considering this fact seriously, do not overlook the further fact however, that a representative body of newspaper men and university authorities has gone twice to legislatures, where the ,democratt held the purse strings, asking for a modest appropriation to sup port a bureau of publicity, and twice has the pro posal been turned down by democratic votet. Now that the issue seems attractive as a vote-getter, the refrain it taken up by the, democratic chorus' and it being attractively displayed in behalf of the democratic office rhr vi..i - ,,.v assurance will be given ut that the democrats will not treat tnit plan in the future as they have in the past Nebraska will get the advertising it needs, but not by waiting for the democrati to do the work. The city planning board't expert has doped out more than the coveted 200,000 for Omaha. What is really required, however. It' the count' that will stand up when the cenaua mu. coquet along.

The Survival of tha Fittoat. Omaha, Aug. 16. To the Editor of The Bee: Some of our modern thinkers claim that since man bettan to interfere with nat ural processes or inclinations, the law of the survival of the Attest ceased to act uni versally. ft ceased to act to a certain extent be cause of unequal opporttoities in pur pren society, but, if we talce a larger view, we will find that it still works out in tne air ferent races of mankind, even at it does -in the plant world. ' E. Francis Andrews recently told ut oj how the group of "composite" flowers, in cluding tucb as the sunflowers, asters, chrys anthemums, etc., (which constitute one-sev enth of all known species) reached the head of the vegetable kingdom by developing system of co-operation. We also notice how among the races of the highest product in the animal kingdom, those socially inclined are favored, while the more individualistic ones succumb. The negr Increases in number and. the Indian is being eliminated. The present war battened the irresistible trend of the white race. Over night, as it were, private monopoly was changed to state socialism. Thit in time will give place to collectivism or more efficient co-operation. The closer adhesion wilT necessitate the condemnation of activlt harmful to thai progress of society 'as a whole, while foster ing others by offering unlimited opportunities to individual development through publi service. Thus will gradually be created eth ics of a new order, bringing out more de cisively the strongest rharacterlstict of the favored survivor; vis., the intelligent and humane qualities, and. the power of combina tion will make it easier to break down bar ricra of environment, hostile to the race. . H. MELL, 2017 Leavenworth Street. More Truth Than Poetry. Omaha, Aug. IS. To the Editor of The Bee: The Omaha Commercial club teemt stumped in Itt effort! to tempt new fac torlet to Omaha. They are about to eonduet an extensive advertising campaign through' out the land. A more valiant effort at home to make Omaha a better place to Jive would go farther toward attracting new people than a bratt band campaign abroad that hat nothing more substantial to eupport its ooite than itt own brassy blare. . - , The faults of Omaha are adjustable, as were tha tame faults In other similar tiled towns, that have regulated them year ago. The concern of Omahant teem to have been to eover the faulte by having every good booster thout himself hoarse for Omaha every time a defect it mentioned. A casual glance it sufficient to convince any one who haa teen different methodt, that the admin istration of city affairs In Omaha Is strictlv on the rural town order, with not an inkling oi what municipal efficiency thould be. There doesn't seem to be a newspaper in the city with spine enough to fltrht what thev Know it nack ward and dangeroua methodt. There is no regular, ash. rubbish and garbage removal by a city deoartment. The garbage that It removed tt not properly dis posed oi, but a herd ox stinkina- hoars al lowed to trample It into unspeakable filth and dangerous contamination to the health. The police department It underoaid and lacking in number and efficiency. Thit de partment sees fit to allow any itinerant. fypty, fortune teller, to advertise Omaha by sening up snop on tne main ttreets. Beg gart are allowed to ply their trade ad libitum giving the inference that the community does rot protect its poor in institutions, but fos ters vagrancy. Through lack of efficiency. courage or desire, the police department al lows congregations of thugs, blacklegs and bums wherever the inclination of that gentry deem it wise to gather. Loafers line the down-town sidewalks and poatoffiee ateDB wun no interference from the noliee. I ne are department haa not seen fit to protect ontlvintr ti.tr.rt- with ..11 I nese things are a louder argument ain umana tnan the noise down at the Ak-Sar- tten dett can eliminate. - They delete th preuy advertising about Omaha.

To the Editor of The Bee: "Issues and Events," July 29, HI, brings under the heading, "Humanity Spark in Washington:" Press reports read to the effect that President Wilton haa tent a per sonal appeal to European rulers urging their co-operation in relieving the ttarving people of Poland. The president hat our hearty congratula tion. At the tame time we cannot help but think of that little syllable "co." . At far at we aware there has never been any sign of co-operation from Washington for the re lief of war sufferers, nor even an independent operation. There has been instead the most cold-blooded calculation! as to how to sweat at much blood and coin out of the warring countries of Europe. This might be given at a frank and open summary of Pretident Wilton's administra tion since the summer of 1914. We will be charitable enough to say that tt hat not been all hit own dolngt and that he hat been under great pressure of greedy finan cier!, . Even the witdom of hit or their policy it open to challenge, tinea this blood money will bring thit country little or no good, in the end. After the present period of artificial prosperity (President Wilton's innermost wish wat on prosperity for re election purposes) there will follow a period of reaction. And it may be well that tome humanita rian feelings are awakening in Washington. We ahall gladly tee them develop to greater strength. Comparing thia "opening" with the procedural of the past one it led to be lieve that other steps In a similar direction might follow and it it possible that this ap peal it merely a prelude to a proposal for general peace. Thit may be more of a with than a probability, but we hope it It true, and we trust that the pretident may take these steps. The above writing Is intended to answer the editorial of the democratic "World-Herald," "Peace and Humanity." and the letter of John B. Coady in the same organ of August IS, 1916: but at the editor of that paper personally hat refuted several of my letters I could not expect thit Wilton editor to print this one at all. So kindly give me space again to offset the misrepresentation of Hughee and the republi can party as stated in the World-Herald. AUGUST MILLER. Past, Present anil Future. Avoea, la., Aug. 16. To the Editor of The Bee: Everybody knows foreign nations are entering the third year of one of the greatest wars of modern or ancient timet. It is alto known that thit nation it ttandlng on the threshold of war, with our boys sticking around the border ready to thrash Mexico, when a long suffering charitable spirit, hat suffered jufflciently with human endurance exhausted. Then there it the railroad strike confronting, at wherein every man. woman and child. In proud and free America, will be vitally a tree ted with difference and distinc tion In the final decision. Peering into a prospective future, we find the present executive ard president of the United States "jumping sideways'? with the G. O. P. camping on hit trail after hit scalp at it were. Thit disgruntled and disunited party that placed Mr. Wilton in power four years ago. "who would maamlfy the mistakes of Motet to win their point of vantage are echoing the battle ery of freedom on the great highways and byways and in the hedges. Divert onet appear to think he got married at an Inopportune time of hit Ad ministration. Watchful waltiiur could- h been applied here with a force, that in their estimation would have placed him. on a pedestal of fame and glory from thit source alone, had he only watched and waited. They also hold him to aa accounting for the aink irur of a ship tn mldoeean by one of the war ring factions In war time, when we all know the safest place wat under our own vine and fig tree until the atorm on tha other thoreo abates.

Let us advocate the beat ing of the sword into tincups of the latest improved pattern. Let ut teach the youth of our land trades and .professions, with common sense ideas attached. Let us forget Dr. Neweomb'a ideas of the tnhabitability of the tun spots published half a century ago. Let ut remember "no man liveth unto him telf alone," and a epirit f "live and let live" thould obtain, and preaching and teaching will not be In vain.
