try. Such corrections of the inequalities of
credit and marketing as are needed are on the
way toward solution hy the men directly con
cerned. They are not asking the governnv.'nt
to do it all, but they are shouldering their own
responsibilities and doing things themselves.
The last eight months have demonstrated
anew that the prosperity of our country depends
on the welfare of the farmers, and if the public
will hold to the conviction that what puts agri
culture on its fect will at the same 'time
strengthen and improve alt other branches of
business, it will have met he suggestion of the
new secretary of agriculture.
Something for Nothing.
Piece hy piece, the castle in the air, set up
by the Nonpartisan league in North Dakota is
falling down. Its ruin is honestly lamented by
the sincere members of the league who pinned
their faith to Townley's promises, and who hon
estly expected success would follow his efforts.
It was a beautiful picture that he presented
them, a commonwealth in fact as well as
name, where economic ills were banished and
difficulties of life were overcome by the simple
expedient of co-operation. t
The middle man was eliminated, but his func
tion was turned over to a state official. Sad to
relate, it turned out that about two officials were
required to do the work of one middle man, while
the salaries paid to either more than equaled the
toll taken by the offender who was to be abol
ished. So it came to pass that the communistic
scheme went on the rocks, because even Town
ley could not create something from nothing.
A certain fundamental economic truth is thus
clearly vindicated. Unless the consumer and the
producer are side by side, machinery for getting
the products of the one where they will meet
the needs of the other must be provided.
Whether this is done by the state or by the in
dividual, the service must be rendered, and must
be paid (or. Sometimes it appears that too many
hands are taking, toll along the route, but that
is to be remedied in another way than by abolish
ing the system entirely. One of the weaknesses
of the Townky experiment was this very fart,
that too many hands were dipping in. Not ail
of these were recognized as state officers, nor
were all connected with the Nonpartisan league.
The farmer who sold his grain at more and the
consumer who bought his flour at less than the
fair market value were taking an undue toll. It
was reported that the state mills were con
ducted at a profit; this was true, save for the ex
ception that none of the usual items of over
head expense were charged against the mills,
that part of the cost being carried by the state,
and necessarily distributed in the form of taxa
tion over the whole property of the state.
The other enterprises set on foot had so much
of the same nature that the burden finally be
came too great for North Dakota to bear. The
people up there are now in the midst of the
wreck of a costly experiment, but will emerge
in time, the better for having learned that one
of the things they can not do is to get some
thing for nothing. Co-operation, properly or
ganized and Wisely carried on, means a saving
to the group engaged, but its processes require
the 'use of capital just as does individual enter
prise, v Failure to recognize this truth has
brought a great many well intended enterprises
to a disastrous ending. The North Dakota ex
periment is only the latest of its kind.
K Possibilities at Our Door.
The move toward forming the East Omaha
drainage district is a good one. Five thousand
acre9 will be saved from danger of overflow and.
stagnant pools when this project is carried out.
To recover and improve a section of this size in
the vicinity of Omaha is an achievement full of
This district is most frequently thought, of-as
an industrial one, but the rich alluvial soil offers
also favorable opportunity fior small farming.;
Omaha is fortunate in having in the region about
Florence a thriving fruit and garden district, yt
there is need for more' of this truck farming.
All along the river, north and south, lies tii3
fertile land, waiting cultivation.. - . " :
The American idea of farming calls for large
tracts!, land, but the smaller pieces, too, have
their opportunities. If, as the new federal com
missioner of immigration promises, more of our
immigrants arc to be steered away from the
cities and on to the soil, it is to such small plots
as these that they might best be directedv Mar
ket gardening is an art in which the people cf
older countries are skilled, and their talents
might well find useful and profitable application
in our river lowlands.
'No "Pop Gun" Opinions.
When Henry C. Wallace appeared at a farm
ers' meeting in Lincoln shortly before his ap
pointment as secretary of agriculture was
definitely announced, he took occasion to-warn
the farmers against what he called "pop gun
opinions." Now that he is installed in his fed
eral office he has turned the same warning on
the city population.
His appeal this time is for a better under
standing of the difficulties facing the growers of
food. "I doubt whether the people of the east
realize just what has happened to the farmers of
the producing sections," he declared. There can
be no question of the provincialism of the east
ern states, and it is a sad truth as well that many
urban dwellers of our own section are innocin.
. of any knowledge of conditions prevailing just
outside the gates where the barb wire fences
begin. It would be a "pop gun" opinion to think
that to buy food at less thah the cost of produc
tion would profit consumers. -
Secretary Waltace does not ask anything more
than that the cities try to understand the coun
try. , Not charity, but an attitude of sympahetic
appreciation that would go far enough to en
courage, the farmers, is his request. The farmers
nnt lieln rirmsplvfe. and the degree of
teir success will depend to some extent on the ,
Luther Drake: Banker and Builder.
One of the real captains of finance in Omaha
laid down his commission when Luther Drake
died, This man, little known outside his bank
ing office and a small circle of close personal
friends, exerted a tremendous influence through
his position. He built himself up from poverty to
a high place by unremitting effort and by never
departing from the policy dictated by a sense of
safety and prudence in all his relations with the
world. Money to him was an instrument, an
agency for good, its power to be applied just
as any other great vitalizing energy is properly
employed. He stood in the business world as
the great surgeon or physician stands in the
operating room, impersonal in his view and ready
to do the thing needed to restore the patient to
health. Outside his bank he was devoted to a
quiet life, modest, retiring, but genial and com
panionable to those fricn'ds he had "by adoption
tried," and who valued him for his sane outlook
on life, his seasoned judgment and the fidelity
with which he gave himself to whatever he un
dertook. His share in the building of Omaha
was much greater than is generally known, be
cause of the quiet fashion in which it was car
ried on, but he did have an active part in the
development of the lite of the city where he had
lived longer than half a century. ( A fine type of
the conservative, constructive banker, Luther
Drake also afforded an example of how success
may be obtained by well directed work, a good
illustration of the opportunity that is open to all
in the United States.
Proved by the Auto Show.
No showing of spring bonnets, no political
campaign, 110 lecture by a stray author from
overseas, could attract a tenth part of the fol
lowing that is being drawn to the Omaha auto
mobile show. On the opening night the police
were hard put to maneuver tire crowds that be
sieged the doors of the Auditorium. Not much
sign of hard times there, and what an unhappy
sight for a confirmed pessimist!
Two conclusions force themselves upon one
who observes this eager interest in the new
models there on display. Most important of all
is that business as usual is the order of the day
in the automobile industry, and the added as
surance that the same solid condition is within
the reach of the. other lines of business in the
city. The other oint is that the automobile has
become a necessity. People are not spending
their money for luxuries yet sixteen sales made
in the few minutes immediately following tli?
opening of the doors contend for the honor of
being the first.
The American standard of living may soon
include in its list of requisites an automobile.
This prediction as made by a Detroit maufac
hirer is not beyond the bounds of probability.
Possession of this means of getting about -the
city and across the country gives so much, ff
health and pleasure and adds so much to the
efficiency of life as to make it almost a necessity
when once its qualities are realized.
The automobile show has performed a real
service to business in Omaha. Displays of such
sort provide an excellent way of discovering the
true economic situation. It is as if Omaha had
pinched itself to find if it was' awake. There
have been other shows here in the last month
or so, all of them successful, and with the build
ing material exposition next on the boards,
Omaha may discover still more its financial
strength and business liveliness.
Wage Conferences a Hopeful Sign.
- If signs and portents are to be considered, the
industrial skies are clearing. Instead of strikes
and lockouts, conferences are being arranged,
and from the councils thus set up, decisions may
come -that will give a great impetus to the re
sumption of business now awaiting the release to
come with the readjustment. Ultimatums have
been exchanged; that is to say, employing groups
have declared what pay will be given and groups
of the employed have stated emphatically that
the offer will not be accepted!. These are but
the preliminary movements. Against them may
be' contrasted -the preparations for consultations
between employers and employed, where bar
gains may be made and a working basis estao
lished. When the serious ' business of settling
wage disputes -is undertaken in this spirit, the
end can only be good. A lower level of pay is
inevitable, if prices in general are brought back
to something approaching "normal." The only
point to be determined is how far the pay en
velope is to be scaled down. This can be settled
better between the parties directly concerned,
and must be if anything like concord is to pre
vail. One side vor the other can not have its
own way and maintain the activity that is needed
for the good of all. -Therefore, the signs upper
most at present are good.

Chesterton and His Thought
Critical Consideratioii of the Man
and His Altitude Toward Life
To the Editor of The Bee:
Thoughtful and discriminative people, who
attended the lecture of Gilbert K. Chesterton
yesterday afternoon at the Fontenelle should
certainly feel like congratulating The Bee for
its frank and open criticism of the speaker.
Gilbert K. Chesterton came to Omaha
presaged as a colossal genius who has the repu
tation for being not only a scholarly essayist, a
fascinating writer of fiction, and an inspiring
poet, but also a profound thinker and philoso
pher. Chesterton's audience was fully cognizant of
his reputation, and believed and hoped in his
address on the "Ignorance of the Educated" he
would fully satisfy his hearers that his reputa
tion was well merited.
Chesterton quickly demonstrated his keon
sen;c of humor, and undoubtedly there are but
few of his hearers who do not appreciate in him
these characteristics of distinction.
But because a man may be a genius as hu
morist, or fiction writer, is he necessarily rightly
entitled to the reputation of being a profound
thinker and philosopher?
If Chesterton is a profound thinker and
philosopher, did he not have the subject and op
portunity to prove it?
If Chesterton is not a lecturer, as he says
and we will take him seriously in this state
ment, though spoken humorously nevertheless,
if a profound thinker and philosopher, should not
his ideas aspoken tend so to prove?
Did his ideas as conveyed in his address of
yesterday tend to convey or prove his reputa
tion as a profound thinker and inspiring philoso
Chesterton's subject, "Ignorance of the Edu
cated," undoubtedly thrilled his audience with
expectancy and rightly so.
Does he not have the reputation of being one
of England's foremost men of letters?'
Has he not the reputation of being one of the
world's original thinkers?
Had not Roosevelt praised him, and the New
York press extolled him?
Analyze Chesterton's address, what were some
of his expressions or ideas, and what of their
(1) Chesterton said, "When education enters,
common sense is annihilated."
Evidently Chesterton is not an educated man.
If so, would he have made such a statement?
Does he here impress us with his logic, or
was he merely demonstrating his art as an
If diligent in the expression of witty remarks,
and an artist in phrase making, does he not
necessarily sacrifice, to a degree, truth and logic?
(2) Chesterton spoke at length concerning
the "Missing Link." His treatment of the sub
ject obviously exhibited neither profound
thought, nor exhaustive research, his statements
were purely assertive. Howbcit Darwin did not
represent himself as giving expression to more
than new sociological theories. Contrast, for ex
ample, the difference in some of the Darwinian
assertions in comparison with statements con
taining the great truths as uttered by the
Should not Chesterton, as an analyst, ap
preciate the difference?
Did Chesterton inspire us with his treatment
of the subject in this respect, or was it common
place? (3) Chesterton delved also in the field of
sociology. He referred to the historic basis for
cave man lore. He deprecated the statement
made by some publicist, that the clan or tribe,
was governed by the "Old Man," aud attempted
to refute the idea.
Was this the thought of a profound philoso
pher, or thinker?
Are we not safe in asserting that no eminent
sociologist would assume responsibility for the
theory that the "Old Man" had tlie divine right
to rule a clan or tribe?
In considering this part of his address, should
wc not stop to pause and consider whether or
not our good friend Chesterton was not contend
ing with a "Straw Man?"
(4) And what would wc say of the further
statement made hy Chesterton concerning his
toric man, that the cl?n or tribe was not gov
erned through fear?
Let the reader reflect, and answer this ques
tion for himself. What definite element was it
that held the clan or tribe together? Was it not
brute force? And who governed the clan or
tribe? Was it not the member of the tribe who
could demonstrate the greatest physical power?
How was Alexander able to realize his dream
of a world empire, if not through force?
Is not the element of force a strong factor in
the control of men and institutions and govern
Why did Roosevelt wield the "big stick," and
why was it necessary for Clemenceaii to demon
strate those personal elements which gave him
the, name of "Tiger," in order to accomplish the
ratification of the treaty of Versailles?
What do you suppose the eminent Dr. Ed
ward A. Ross, sociologist at Wisconsin univer
sity, formerly of the University of Nebraska, who
by the way, was one of the few living publicists
in America read by Roosevelt, would think of
Chesterton's sociological utterances?
Down to the time of the coming of Christ, we
may safely assert that the dominating influence
in -the control of men was force, and its re
sultantfearand that since that time the fight
has been on between the contending forces of
brute strength savagery and barbarism on the
one hand, and Christianity, democracy and civ
ilization on the other?
Analysis of Chesterton's address should con
vince us that those utterances, ostensibly made
while the speaker was in a philosophical mood,
should not in the main be taken too seriously.
His statements, for example, such as, "A Ser
bian village is more democratic than either
America or England, and Patrick Henry would
shorten his statement to 'Give me death' if he
could arise and survey American institutions,'"
are certainly not more than half-truths, if they
have 'any semblance of truth whatsoever; tiiey
are not the utterances of a profound thinker and
philosopher, but are the phrasings of an epigram
matist and humorist.

Wants GuMa'son to Resign.
Sliver Creek. Neb.. March 14. To
the Editor of The Bee: In Tho Bee
of March 11. Mr. H. A. Stiver of
Hooper, Neb., commenting on the
fact aa stated in the newspapers that
Mr. C. H. Gustafson has been given1
a $12,000 a year Job by the National
Farm Bureau Federation while draw
ins; a salary of $6,000 a year as presi
dent of th Farmers' union, declares
that Mr. Gustafson "In all fairness
and decency" ought Immediately to
resign aa president of the Farmers'
union, and adds that he thinks he
expresses tho general septlment of
Mr. Stiver in demanding- Mr. Ous
tafson's resignation may be sure that
he also expresses the opinion of
every other loyal member of every
other local In the whole state of Ne
braska. When Mr. Gustafson ac
cepted the office of president of tho
union at a salary of $6,000 and ex
penses and the official report shows
that' for last year he drew as ex
pense money, $1,508.43 he In effect
entered into a contract to Rive the
union his entire time, but as a mat
ter of fact, ho probably has not given
the union one-quarter of his time.
For many months prist we have
heard little or nothing of Gustafson's
work for the union, but very much
of his work for the farm bureau
federation in which rue holds sev
eral important offices other than
that $12,000 Job.
The truth is that Gustafson has
been, and is, working the Farmers'
union instead of working for It
building himself up on the ruins of
the union (we now have about 300
fewer local organizations than we
had a year ago. with hundreds of
others In a weakened condition), for
a little cheap glory and 30 pieces of
Gustafson has forfeited his office
as president of the Farmers' union.
While he will not resign, our state
board of directors should protect the
interests of the union by refusing
to pay him another dollar as salary
or expenses, and refuse in any way
to recognize him in an official ca
pacity. CHARLES WOOSTER.

Omaha, March 14. To the Editor
of .The Bee: The coming spring
primary election is but a few weeks
distant and the people of Omaha
will soon draw their final conclu
sions as to who they will have rep
resent them in the next city council.
The present members have been on
trial and the voters have had ample
opportunity to study the situation
and know whether they desire to
give them a vote of confidence or
to fill their places with men whom
they feel will exercise more consid
eration for the welfare and needs
of the people they represent. Were
I permitted to advise the voters of
Omaha in naking their selections
for city commissioners, I would
say, '"Have a care."
The office of police commissioner
in Omaha Is a difficult one to
handle, and many have met failure
in trying to execute the duties of
this office. This is th only depart
ment of the city government where
the commissioner is not permittee
to have his say in hiring and firing
the employes of his department.
His hands are tied by constant inter
ference from other members of the
commission, and until Omaha gives
the police commisisoner full power
and authority over this department,
there will be constant friction and
inefficiency which Is costly to the
welfare of the general public.
Police Commissioner Dean Ringer,
the present Incumbent, has proven
to the people that he is a big enough
man for the Job. With his limited
power over this department he has
done better than any .other man
placed in this office to uphold the
dignity of the . law and preserve
order in Omaha. When he took con
trol of the Omaha police depart
ment he undertook a real man's
Job. Thuggery, graft and under
world political control dared and de
fied him to oust them from their
stronghold on the police depart
ment. He promised the peopje at
his election that he would clean this
department up, and he has slowly
and surely weeded out this unde
sirable element. His administration
has been a credit to himself and to
the city of Omaha.
Commissioner Dean Ttlnger has
proven to the people of Omaha that
he Is the right man in the right
place. His work in cleaning up the
police department has fceen carried
on without regard for his political
future. He has done his duty with
out fear or favor, and while this
policy has mode enemies for him
among a certain class, it has made
friends for him among the law
abiding element of Omaha. He is
one member of the city commission
who has Justly earned re-election,
and it should be the duty of the
voters to see that he is returned to
this place of responsibility.

Oamah. March 7. To the Editor
of The Bee: One of the stereo
typed phrases we hear at this time,
is that business and the farmer have
each taken a loss, and now it is up
to labor to do likewise. We admit-
that the farmers have taken a loss
and a severe one, but there is no
evidence that business has taken any
loss, for In spite of all the clamor
to the contrary, prices to the con
sumer have not come down to any
extent. Besides, business has bad
several exceedingly fat years, where
in are absorbed any incidental loss
Labor Is not so fortunately placed
The raise In wages was practically a
year behind the raise in prices, nnd
never caught up with the prices
which the consumer had to pay.
High wages did not make high
prices, but followed them, and out
tine wages will not lower prices, but
will only add to the swollen surplus
which business has already extorted
from the people.
When prices went un, business had
an opportunity to unload the stock
of goods already on hand at Inflated
prices. Labor had no surplus ac
cumulated to sell. Therefore, labor
had no opportunity to profiteer, even
If ro disposed.

little. Likewise the milk of a mother
