Easter: Its Message to Mankind.
In all the years since mankind first marked
the vernal equinox as a time for rejoicing over
a world new born, the return of spring, a prom
ise of a resurrection and a life everlasting, no
Eastertide has held so much of solemn portent
as, does this.
It finds a world arrayed in arms, seemingly
forgetful of any precept of loving kindness or
regard one for another, and bent on destruction
to ttie utmost. War that has raged for longer
than two years, instead of abating its fury, has
engulfed the;' United States along with other na
tions and bids fair to extend its sinister control
until all the world may be involved in the actual
conflict. Nothing in the material aspect of man
kind outwardly responds to the spirit of Easter.
And yet the outlook holds no justification for
despair. Our world has been wrought into its
present condition as much by the activity of vio
lence as by the slower processes of attrition and
detrition. Water wears away stones, and winds
move shifting sands, but the hurricane and the
unmastered waves effect greater changes in a
few hours than the rains and zephyrs accomplish
in centuries. Cataclysmic convulsions of nature
have mocked man's efforts from the beginning,
but always he has rebuilded, better and stronger
and more worthily. The contest between the
good and the evil began before the world was
formed, and must continue until all evil is forever
Out of the wreck of war already has emerged
one more free people; the institution of democracy
has triumphed over despotism in Russia, and a
lpng night of political oppression Is ended. In
other countries social distinctions buttressed by
ages of convention are crumbling and will dis
appear; and everywhere the people ire coming
into a fuller measure of the freedom that is the
birthright of all.
The message of Easter to mankind is that
great good is achieved only through sacrifice and
suffering; the way to the empty sepulcher led
through Gethsemane and past Calvary. And out
of the darkness of the present hour will come the
light of a better life for all.
Democracy Not a Failure.
The voice of an old man, quivering with indig
nation as it quavered with age, came over the
telephone to The Bee, asking the editor to say
if democracy has failed and self-government be
come a mockery. He had been arguing with some
younger men, who. had borne him down by
weight of words, but had not convinced him that
the government he long has loved is shaken on
The old man was riglit.v Democracy has not
failed. One hundred and forty-three years of
independent control of their own affairs by the
American people has just had the most trium
phant vindication possible. Unreasoning individ
uals loudly proclaim that if the resolution adopted
by the congress had been submitted to a refer
endum it would have been rejected. To support
this they recur to the national abhorrence of war.
But this repugnance to war must not be mistaken
as proof of unwillingness to engage in conflict
when the cause is just Nor is it sure that the
president would n6t have had support from the
people in his policy had he asked for I vote last
week. This point can never be tested, and it is
idle to debate it. , .
As affecting the stability of our government.
the ready sdbmission of those who opposed the
president and their acquiescence in the will of
the majority ought to give complete answer to
any question as to the ability of the people to gov
ern themselves and to decide questions touching
their welfare. , It is not practical to submit all
questions to referendum. Representative govern
ment is not on trial; it demonstrated its efficiency
long ago, and its responsiveness to the moods of
the people is equally established. "
Only thoughtless persons, their vision dimmed
or narrowed by surroundings, contend that de
mocracy has failed because their views are not
adopted. Neither one aide nor the other can
always win, nor is it likely that either is always
right, but the shifting mood is ever a sign of
advance in thought and progress in growth, and
democracies live only because they are elastic.
Delinquency of the Realty Record.
A notable delinquency of the record of realty
conveyances has been observed since the repeal
of the federal stamp tax. The artistic stickers
exerted a stiffening power far beyond their size
and advanced truth to a cheerful degree. Guessing
on the amount of money consideration involved
in a real estate transaction was eliminated. The
stamps blazoned the truth, which a majority of
buyers theretofore preferred to keep in the dark.
Almost from the moment of the withdrawal of
federal support realty transactions began again to
fall from their high estate in official records and
now appear firmly ensconced on the bargain
. Intentionally or otherwise the daily record of
transfers mutely jollies the county assessor and
mocks the business dignity of the realtor. It
tells the truth, but not the whole truth. Fully
one-half the deeds now filed show that only one
dollar changed hands. Occasionally "other val
nable consideration" is added for the purpose of
dignifying the deal and removing the impression
of a give-away. The latter phrase doubtless em-
bracea varying amounts of coin or equivalent,
- Obviously the absence of full terms tends to mis-
I cad the uninitiated. ,
t Manifestly future purchasers are entitled to a
franker declaration in the record and our realtors
iliould exert their influence for full publicity as

not be ignored the important one of satisfying
public curiosity. -
Crop Report Call to Action.
The government crop report is a call to ac
tion, addressed to the American farmers. Present
indications are that the wheat crop will be fifty
million bushels short of last year's yield, that was
itself below normal requirements. This is due
to the rigor of the winter. Acreage seeded to
winter wheat was far above the average, bat the
severe cold weather' brought down the orosoecta
of yield very low. Kansas and Nebraska, leading
producers ot this variety of wheat, are among the
lowest in tne list.
This means that spring-sown croos will be de
pended upon to relieve the country from the dan.

Appeals of unpatriotic correspondents (mostly
anonymous) to give space in The Bee to near-
treasonable screeds fall on deaf ears. If these
writers want to take the responsibility of print

they can do so at their own expense and risk.

ROLLING multi-colored eggs down the ter
races of the White House grounds on Easter
Monday is, I see, to be barred, although to make
sure this unique local custom shall not die out at
Washington the performance is to be transferred
to the plot at the base of the Washington monu
ment. No one who has witnessed an egg-rolling
scene at the national capital would want it com
pletely abolished, for it is an historic institution.
I remember what an impression it madt the
first time I viewed the interesting spectacle. It
was while the Clevelands were in the White
House and the grounds were literally , swarming
with youngsters having the time of their lite. All
the highways and byways leading to the tourna
ment place gave evidence of the festive occasion
by the children going and coming, carrying little
baskets filled with gaudy eggs.. On the White
House, terraces they were all mixed up yes, the
children and the eggs, their French nurses and
their colored mammies and a sprinkling of street
ragamuffins. They would start the eggs at the
top of the grassy incline and let them roll one
after the other, sometimes trying to make them

The news is that Mr. Rosewater has purchased

The Bee. He is as aggressive almost pugna

water, who, coming to this country from
Bohemia and beginning business life as a teleg- '
rapher at the time of the civil war, later built
up The Omaha Bee to very considerable pro
portions as a newspaper and aa a political
organ. Those were the days when newspapers
and their owners took politics more seriously
than they do now; the senior Rosewater would
have died happier if he had gratified his ambi
tion to go to the United States senate. Maybe
the present editor of The Bee will be more
fortunate -(or successful), for he is a power

nominating convention in 1912 gave him na
