V Pensions for Aged Clergymen.
The Episcopalians are the first of the church
bodies in this country to complete the minimum
sum needed as an endowment fund to sustain a
pension system for aged and infirm clergymen.
Last Sunday country-wide pledges carried the
fund well over $5,000,000, bringing to a gratifying
close a movement conducted with business-like
efficiency by Bishop Lawrence of Massachusetts.
Under the proposed pension system clergymen re
tired for age or ill-health receiv a fixed per
centage of their total salary, the amount increas
ing in proportion to length of service. .
Other denominations are pressing for com
pletion of like pension funds. The Methodists
propose an endowment of $15,000,000, of which
about one-half is subscribed. Presbyterians re
port three-fifths of their $10,000,000 fund in tight;
the Congregationalists are raising $3,000,000 arid
the Baptists $2,000,000. These sums Impose no
great burden on the membership of the churches
interested. : They have grown and prospered
with he country and extended their activities in
many directions. It is a notorious fact that very
. few of the. clergy , share, in material prosperity.
Many and varied are the calls on their meager
stipends, and heart and vocation alike forbid re
fusal in worthy eases., Personally unable to make
provision for the Inevitable 'waning5 years or for
shattered health, that -duty properly becomes the
first obligation of thecliUitli, There is no reason
l,to doubt that the membership, properly impressed
with its duty, will rue to the occasion and fulfill
the obligation. ,' , .
Omaha's Automobile Show. "
On tomorrow the automobile dealers of
Omaha will open their twelfth annual ihow, in
viting inspection of the cars and providing most
substantial proof of progress made in the twelve
month since the last exposition of the kind. This
event is one of the really important incidents in
the city's program of the year. From whstever
angle it may be viewed, the automobile industry
is impressive. That it has sprung from nothing
to a business of more than a billion dollars an
nually since the beginning of the century is not
the least marvelous feature of the world's his
tory. This astounding growth is due to the serv
iceability of the self-propelled vehicle, and its
facile adaptability for all uses. To enumerate
the types and purposes of the various makes
would be to emulate Homer's catalogue 'of the
ships. No requirement of business or industry
goet unprovided for by the automobile builder.
Omaha's share in the marvelous business has
been great, and is destined to be grester. Enter
prising men, quick to see an opportunity, found
here unusual advantages for the sale and distribu
tion of their output, and today the automobile
trade is one of the chief fsctors in the city's life.
Thousands of cars are sold here each year, and
the business is steadily expanding. Established
firms are increasing their capacity, and new ones
are pushing in, while the demand for the ma
chine! is keeping just a little bit ahead of the
ability to furnish cars. , ' ,
The promise of the show this week is expan
sive, for it is set out thst every type of car and
every known and classified accessory or bit of
equipment is to be on display. This ought to
make such an attractive display that the Audi
torium wilt be crowded with interested visitors
all the time. At any rate, no city can fail that has
so many energetic men engaged in pushing its
trade and extending its influence as are devoting
their time to the automobile Industry here.
Art at the Theater.
Mr. Stuart Walker is reaping golden reward
for the faith he had in the belief that the Ameri
can public still is willing to pstronlie the theater
at which only art in its better sense is set forth.
His years of preparation for his present work
were spent in the very hottest center of the com
mercialized theater, and the successes he noted
were those that were made with only the box
office in view. . From this school he sallied forth,
the apostle of a message, and with an idea that
gave him no rest. New York, Chicago and other
centers of population have welcomed him, and
the success his venture has met almost convinces
the observer that the American public is witling
to give attention to a player whose appeal rests
on the actor's art and not on the scene buildy's
craft The Drama League of America has in con
siderable degree revived the waning light of the
stage, and thus has served beyond its expecta
tions. Perhaps It is too soon for the full rein
statement of the theater in its rightful place In
our social scheme, but "The Gods of the Moun
tain" inspire the hope thst all the people who
have crowded to see Mr. Walkenjs Portmanteau
Theater are not draWn thither merely inspect
Not a Good Comparison.
Many times in recent years have we been told
that the American republic is traveling the same
road to 'the certain destruction that overtook the
Roman republic, ! Certain features of national life
teem to suggest parallels that invite comparison
and the dolorous conclusion that unless we mend
our ways we wilt forfeit our liberty and end our
days as did the Romans, under the despotic rule
of imperial tyrants. This resemblance is on the
surface only. If the discouraged brethren will
dig a little deeper they will find such a difference
in the genius and the ideals of the two republics
as may comfort and encourage them.
Perhaps the nearest approach between the his
tory of Rome and the experience of the United
States is the decay of the military spirit that
came with prosperity. Romans fought not only
to preserve their country, but to extend its -dominion.
With power came affluence and love of
luxurious ease, and a disinclination to serve as
soldiers, until, as the end of the empire ap
proached under Constantine, we find the Roman
citizens singing, "I did not raise my boy to be '
a soldier," while the populace, fed by the bounty
of the emperor, applauded. In seeking to enjoy
without wisely providing to protect their pros
perity, the Romans went down to ruin.
. This it the chief lesson America has to learn
from the history of Rome. Decadence incident
to idleness produced its lawful effect. Our repub
lic is founded on a conception of human rights
unknown to Rome, its Institutions and its per
manence resting on the equality of its citizenry.
Its life comprises barely an eighth of the span
compassed by the Romans in their growth, gran
deur and decline. In that time it has accomp
lished more of real good for humanity than Rome
did in its thousand years, and . its mission , is
scarcely more than entered upon, Proper devo
tion to that mission requires more than lip serv
ice from all citizens.
Rank of Our State University.
A late bulletin from the federal bureau of edu
cation presents in compact form an informing
variety of educational statistics compiled from
reports of state universities and state colleges for
the year ended June 30, 1916. They cover teach
ing staffs and salaries, student enrollment, in
come and endowments, property, and equipment
values and some changes in study courses of
ninety-one state-controlled schools tf higher edu
cation. It may be noted at the outset, M a sign
of the times, that fifty-eight of the ninety-one
Institutions embraced in the bulletin maintained
military dritt, and the Oregon university joined
the number, this year. . Nebraska university re
ported 772 students in military drill, ranking fif
teenth m number enrolled. In all but one respect
the state university makes an excellent compara
tive showing in the tables. The teaching staff
of 267 ranks ninth in the Jist, while the student
enrollment of 4,826 Is exceeded by only seven
other state-owned institutions The university's
working income of $1,417,208 for that year ranks
tenth. It stands eleventh in value of grounds,
Including farm, fourteenth in value of buildings,
and eighteenth in value of scientific equipment,
machinery and library. The latter rank is open
to improvement. - The average, however, affords
gratifying proof of the university's progress and
standing in the educational new world,'
The Omaha Commercial club has raised the

ASA RESULT of this last week's fire.
ii. Omaha's business district shows the big
gest hole that has been burned in it for
a Ions time and the rebuilding-, as it comes about
is sure to make a most marked change in the
city's topography a'.d aspect. In the very early
days the block froi- fourteenth to Fifteenth fac
ing Douglas str'-st, , was an aggregation of
wooden stores and irame shacks, the first brick
building being on the second lot from the east
corner, probably Dart of it still remaining, me
Fourteenth street come.- was occ'uied by a big
barn-like building housing a drug store, sup
planted later bv the brick structure in which J.
A. Fuller conducted his drug business. There
was a hardware store to the west run by the
Dukes and about the center of the block was
Madame Hickman s famous Millinery Emporium,
that set the styles in headgear for all the women
or Omaha s most fashionable set of those days.
Of course, there was a saloon or two, a resturant,
and a few other shops, but no pretensions to
architectural achievement even comparable with
the uniform blocks on both Douglas and Farnam
below fourteenth until the Continental fcuilding
blossomed forth among the other acquisitions of
our hrst Room period. When originally erected
the Continental building was the pride 'of the city
and with the fine buildings on the three other cor
ners made Fifteenth and Douglas the real retail
center of Omaha, which prestige it long held. It
was just half way between the postoffice and the
opera house and it was the focus of nearly every
thing, especially the street corner meetings, circus
parades, and carriage traffic, for let it be remem
bered that Douglas was paved with smooth as
phalt all the time, while the rough granite blocks
on Farnam drove business away. I know, because
an uncle of mine had an office in the Continental
block, which I used to frequent when I wanted a
preferred perch in a corner street window.
My reference to "Captain Jack" Crawford, "the
poet scout," has brought me a letter from some
one who can speak about "Captain Jaqk" with au
thority, because intimately associated with him in
the early days of The Bee. The letter comes
from John H. Pierce, now at Oakland, Cal., who
signs himself again, "Ranger," as he did when he
was the Bees correspondent.
"Oakland, Cal., Feb. 20. My Dear Victor:
It is customary to minimize the services of pub
lic men and thereby the writer secures credit
for showing how fame is but a cobweb. 'Cap
tain Jack' Crawford, 'the poet scout,' is said to
be dying and 'Senator'' Sorensen brushes away
a long stretch of his years, devoted to removing
the bars to civilization by the words, 'He has
ever since been doinsr Chautauaua work.'
"During that time Crawford fought every
band of hostiles, and they were numerous, that
killed, raided and destroyed in the southwest
and at Fort Craig, N. M. He was not only chief
of scouts, but he was the chief business man
of the post,
"There is not in the War department a
shoulder strap to mark the chief of scouts, but
ft is a title, like wagon master, recognized
wherever the army uses either. Immediately
following the Custer campaign against the
Sioux, Captain Jack was where he could watch
the hostiles, who had fled to Canada. . His
headquarters were at Haraboo, B. C. When the
Klondyke was opening to civilization the
Alaska gold fields, Captain Jack was a pioneer
"Sorensen is a noble Knight of Ak-Sar-Ben,
and when he dies I hope no one will shorten
his honorable record one item, and if they do I
will be glad to arise and cry hold. Yours for
the whole truth. "RANGER."
Alt this is very interesting, but so far as I
have yet heard, "Captain Jack" has not yet
"kicked the bucket," and it would be a welcome
irony of fate for him to pull himself together and
come back at his biographers with the true story
of his life.
I am moved to wonder if folks nowadays still
keep scrapbooks as repositories of things they
read and want to keep and refer to again. The
scrapbook habit ought to be inculcated in young
folks for they can draw big dividends of pleasure
and satisfaction out of it afterwards. For example
of what I say, read this memorandum that was
submitted to me not long ago by a friend en
gaged in newspaper work, who evidently reads
this column regularly :
"There is a peculiar fascination in browsing
through, old scrapbooks. Some time ago I was
given a volume of newspaper and magazine
clippings. The book was prepared by a woman
who lived for many years in St. Louis and who
died in Omaha a few years ago. It was only a
few days ago that I took time to peruse the
pages of this interesting book.
"Glancing hurriedly through the pages, I
noted some articles relating to the fate Robert
G. Ingersoll, another article by Ouida, a ser
mon by Rev. Dewitt Talmage and then I came
upon an article from The Sunday Bee, under
date line of Craig-y-Nos Castle, Ystradgyulais,
South Wales, June 27, 1891, signed by Victor
Rosewater. That article was pasted in the book
more than a quarter of a century ago.
"On another page is an illustrated article of
'Great Journalists,' including Joseph Medill,
George W. Childs, Murat Halstead, Charles A.
Dana and Henry Watterson. Which reminds me
that one of the early assignments I had when
beginning newspaper work was to meet Mr.
Halstead at the Union depot one cold night,
after the hour of midnight.. I recognized the
distinguished newspaper man when he alighted 4
from the train, told him. I was from The Bee '
and then directed him to the Paxton hotel. He
asked after the late Edward Rosewater, that I
can recall, but I do not remember anything of
. particular interest that he may have said in the
way of an interview," , '
People and Events
It is said that John D. Rockefeller sends eggs'
daily to the men guarding his Pocantico estate,
but draws the line at free spud. '
Potatoes have reached the topnotch price of
$8 a barrel in various parts of Maine and farriers
occasionally trade a few barrels for limousines. '
. Of course there are no restraints in trade in
food products. Still, a New York market dealer
held back his oniona until he cleaned up $50,000.
' Holding hands isa form of social diversion
strictly taboo in Pittsburgh hotel lobbies. A
recent instance created such a stir that the man
in the oase called a minister, had the knot tied
on the spot and spurned an apology from the
house. ' . '. '
In an opinion delivered by the attorney gen
eral of New York state the. official holds that
remnants of the Shinnecock and Montauk tribes

among the first families. . .
Bala and Cynwyd are names imported from
the rocky vales of Wales to dignify two allied
suburbs of Philadelphia. ' Both illumine the local
map just now because the residents are deter
mined to break the spud combine by planting
potatoes on every vacant foot of ground there
abouts. Bala and Cynwyd set the right pace for
thrifty imitators. .....
New York and Vermont having agreed to dis
agree on a division of taxes on the Hetty Green
estate, the issue goes to the highest court. Testi
mony given in lower courts shows that Mrs.
Green used a variety of aliases at different resi
dences in New York, Jersey City and Brooklyn
and thus confounded beggars, peddlers and oth
ers of that ilk. Under these conditions tax asses
sors experienced great difficulty in securing an
introduction to the feminine Croesus.
