PURCHASING THE GAS PLANT.
, Two points in connection with the purchase
of the gas plant should be kept clearly in mind:
The city is not obligated to purchase the exist
ing plant at the appraised price, nor is the gas
company . under any obligation to accept the
price. EitkxY may reject the appraisement and
the other may, if it so elects, appeal to the
courts to enforce the award
If the city rejects the award and undertakes
to begin de novo, it. is within" the range of pos
sibilities that th'e company will start suit - Sev
eral years will probably be required to deter
mine the issue, with the possibility of the city
being-finally required to accept the plant at the
pne fixed by the appraisers. While this is- go
jng on, the citizens will get no relief in the mat
ter of cost of gas for domestic use, no better
ments will be added to the plant, and no im
provements in service may be looked for. Liti
gation also is costly.
As The Bee has several times stated, the
price fixed by the board is higher than the city
offered, and less than the company asked; it is
also less than a similar plant can be constructed
for, and more than the scrap or junk value to
the company of its property. Whether it will
be necessary to immediately spend a million
dollars to change the process by which gas is
made is open to question The present system
is furnishing service of a satisfactory qaality,
and has been profitable to its .owners.
The citizens voted to buy the gas plant not
a law suit The company is entitled to a square
deal A competent boar' has examined fcprts,
heard arguments, and" made its award. It is
within the power of the city commission to ac
cept the award, as the company has signified
its willingness to, or to reject it and open the
way to" further delay, probably vexatious and
costly, in the acquisition of the plant
The wise way seems open; will the commis
sioners follow it?

. Who Runs the Government?
When the president handed Mr. Lansing
his walking papers, one of the pretexts was that
the secretary of state had sought to formulate
a policy to bind the executive and without con
sulting him. Whether this be true or not the
supporters of the president have found great
consolation in this display of independence. We
wonder how they will dispose df certain things
that are now being brought to light. John Bar
ton Payne took tea with Mrs. Wilson and she
asked him would he like to be secretary of the
interior.- He would, and got the job. Admiral
Benson took tea with the president's wife and
emerged with a reappointment to the shipping
board. Foreign diplomats complain that the
irritating incident of gossip which, marred the
short stay of Lord Grey as British ambassador
was given its greatest effect because Mrs. Wil
son' would not be mollified or appeased by the
emphatic and authoritative denial presented at
the White House. Then we have the incident
of a letter written by Senator Hitchcock to the
president asking for an audience for Senator
Simmons on a matter of highest importance,
delayed for several days by Secretary Tumulty,
who finally delivered it to the president after
the fact that it had been written became gen
erally known in Washington. The, part played
by Dr. Grayson in connection with the cabinet
conferences during the president's illness has
been a source of much comment. All these
things, taken together, justify the inquiry as to
who is running the government?
Grand Opera In Chicago.
Grand opera is for music-loving millionaires
id pay for. The Chicago Opera company has
just concluded a season of five weeks in New
York at a loss to its owners of $150,000. The
company will pay t a loss on the entire season
of 15 weeks, which approximates $300,000.
But that is not unusual . For years rich men
in Chicago have met losses of $200,000 or more
a season. "Why do they do it?" To promote
taste for the best music; to keep Chicago in
the operatic musical world; to gratify their own
desire to hear over and over again the master
pieces of musical art rendered by artists, and to
give the public opportunity to revel in the
pleasures of harmonies.
Some years ago at a popular Chicago res
taurant a gentleman laid down his napkin,
stepped over to another table, talked to a gen
tleman there two minutes,' and returned to his
own meaL "I just got his pledge to put up $10,
000 a year for five years for grand opera," he
said. : That is the way opera is made possible
for Chicago and why it is now assured for the
nerft two years.1
An Omaha Forward Impulse.
Spring is almost here, and with it is com
ing realization of a great many,projects that
have been worked out during the last few
months. The building campaign will be espe
cially active, unless unforeseen contingencies
arise. Already the work under way is sufficient
to make what would have been looked upon
as a genuine building boom a few years ago.
Activity in Other lines is quite as vigorous. A
great many new industries have been set up
here since last summer, and these are now on
the market pushing for trade, and adding to
the prestige of the city as an industrial and
commercial point All of these things com
bine to encourage the citizens in their efforts
at betterment Some further co-ordination in
local plans might not be amiss, as the bringing
together of a number of now independent agen
cies, all looking in the same general direction,
but acting individually. The Chamber of Com
merce may well take the lead in this, settling
on a definite program to unite all energies.
Everybody is willing, and now is a time to set
about to accomplish something for the good
of all. United effort will do wonders.
Interest and Waares.
In his little book, "RebuildingEurope,"
Newell Dwight Hillis devotes a chapter to liupreme court of the United States, born
Why Our Citizens Should Love Their Coun
try." Among other potent reasons he advances
a comparison between interest rates and wages
50 years ago and today. In 1870 the interest
rate in he west was 12 per cent; today it is 6, a
decrease of 50 per cent. On the other hand, the
wages of working men have increased during
the same period from $1 a day to $3, $4 and $5
an increase of from 300 to 500 per cent
-. Obviously the possession of "money to lend"
has ' become less profitable and labor more
profitable. ' The trend should be eminently sat
isfactory to labor. ' "
From the Music Trade Review.
There is no such thins: as a forest of ma
hogany, the wood that has been of so much im
portance in the making of certain musical in
struments. I tit pine tree loves us own wua
and never thrives better than when planted by
nature or by man one tree next to the other,
over mile after mile of plain or mountain.
Utner trees are touna in groves or ciumps,
seeming to form little settlements within the
woods. The mahogany tlee, however, lives by
and for itself alone. It stands solitary of its
species, surrounded by the smaller trees and
dense undergrowth of the tropical forest rear
ing its bead high above all. It is a giant among
even the giants of a tropical forest If towers
sometimes to a height of one hundred feet The
trunk is often 50 feet in length and 12 feet in
diameter, and it divides into huge arms and
throws its shade over a vast extent of surface
The precise period of growth is 'not accurately
known, but when large it changes little during
the life of a man, the time of its arriving at ma
turity being estimated at 200 years.
Two trees to the acre form a liberal estimate
for mahogany ''finds." More frequently, per
haps, only one tree will be found over a larger
stretch of territory, and one instance is on rec
ord where a company, after getting a concession
to cut the timber within an area of 40 square
miles, found only 60 trees, an average of less
than one tree to 400 acres. Elevation, too, is
an important factor in the tree's value. It pre
fers low-lying, moist rich, almost swampy land.
Good specimens have been found as nigh as
1,500 feet fn Jamaica, .where much of the wood
came from and where it was so ruthlessly de
stroyed. As a rule, however, it clings to the
coast or the edges of rivers that have no great
fall from their source to their entrance into the
sea. While transportation is not complicated
by the problem of moving the giant logs down
the mountain, the advantage is overcome by the ,
fact that passage through the tropic jungle is
costly and difficult
The mahogany tree is most abundant and
found to the greatest perfection between lati
tudes II degrees and 23 degrees 10 minutes
north. Within these parallels lie Jamaica, Cuba,
the Dominican and Haitian republics, parts of
Colombia and Venezuela, all of Central Amer
ica, in which is included the mahogany areas of
Honduras, and the lower part of Mexico. The
mahogany found nearer the equator than the
limits given is not usually of such a fine quality
as that found within this beltt. Exception may
be made to small areas in Panama and to the
more recently exploited sources of supply in
Africa. Very fine timber has been exported
from Nigeria within recent years, especially
since the almost denudation of the older sources
in the West Indies, but even Nigeria lies north
of the equator, and, to that extent at least, fol
lows the rule. It is therefore a curious fact that
very little mahogany is found growing south
of the equatorial line, although climate and Ele
vation may in many places seem to be quite
suited to it.
The mahouany trees of the tropical forests
are being slowly, but none the less surely, cut

War, the Sport of Kings
Such extracts as have been published of
Crown Prince Frederick Wilhelm's book on the
ar reveal the crown prince as the typical
moral imbecile of the Hohenzollern type, af
flicted with a mania for viewing- war as a
sort of amiable sport of kings. That he has
written his book for home consumption in Ger
many with a view to popularity with ths dis
banded army goes without saying. That he has
also set out to flatter the allies by what passes
for a frank, and fervid appreciation of their
national characteristic is also self-evident, and
the motive back of this kind , of droolery, is
plain to all. But what a pity it is that it cannot
be brought home to this royal weakling, who
believes he has squared all accounts with the
allies by declaring jauntily that they were all
good sports and all good soldiers, with -reservations,
that a world, weltering in misery because
he and his father thought it was about time to
have a war and try this sport of kings on-a
big scale, is not in the mood to take him or
his frivolous philosophy 4s to the sporting side

Pay of Public Servants.
Omaha, March 5. To the Editor
of The Bee: In reading The Bee, I
noticed an article in it about J. J.
Dudley, called the human ' sema
phore, sending in hjs resignation to
the police department because of in
sufficient pay. Now, I, as one of the
many citizens of Omaha, would not
and do not want to Bee any of our
public officials work for Inadequate
He eays he is being paid the Bum
of $140 dollars per month for hlu
services and cannot provide for him
self and wife on this amount. Now,
after seeing him manage traffic the
way he does, one would think that
he would be better able to handle
his salary. Perhaps if he takes the
ten-day leave offered him by Chief
Eberstein and uses it in trying to
obtain another position, he will soon
find, unless he ie experienced in
some trade, that there are very few
Jobs floating around Omaha paying
anywhere near $140 per month. He
will find out that in all the factories
of Omaha, railroad shops, packing
houses. Jobbing houses and othsr
places, office help included, that
the majority of men are being
paid around $25 a week, with not
much variation, and that they are
supporting families of from one to
five children on this. Not any too
much money, I am sure, butth
are doing it. '
By his resigning it would appear
that the men are not receiving
enough pay to live on, but how can
you expect men who are themselves
working for $100 a month to be pay
ing high salaries to publio officials?
J I think the proper thing is first
Vor the under man to receive more,
so that he can afford to pay more co
the other fellow. Of course, one
might say there are men receiving
$10 a day. True, there are, but they
are tradesmen aid unluckily we are
not all tradesmen. Just a while back,
too, one of the publio officials was
being paid $1,000 a month for su
pervising the reconstruction of the
records destroyed at the court house
the night of theriot when the ma
jority of the men who were taxed to
navhlm were receiving about that
much per year. Now, does that seem
fair? A SUBSCRIBER.

watch for some news aa to what con
sideration the Nebraska legislature

completely served in' ojir recent
World war. But to date all hopes
have been shattered and all respect
for my home etafe lost
Is it not proper that the boys who
established such a famous reputa
tion for their home state be given the
same consideration as those of the
eastern states, who most certainly
did not establish such a famous
record as the boys from the west?
But they endured the many hard
ships throughout the war, fought
side by side and many even died
side by side. Are the Nebraska boys
to feel that these eastern states are
more proud of the boys than the
states of the' west? v
' The state of Massachusetts has
paid their boys $10 per month all
the time they served in the service
besldea the many other considera
tions. The state of New York, like
many other eastern states, have bills
pending in their legislature to pay
such- an amount The least that any
of the eastern states have done is
to award each man a medal, which
at least shows they have not for
gotten their boys. ....

hours and starve to death if you
went without food a half day. It is

called on you and you "flunked flat."

An outline won't always remember
