While choosing candidates for
various offlrps to be filled at this
election, voters In Omaha are tailed
on to express themselves alfo on two
proposition one authorizing the
smie of $50,00 park bonds, and the
other consenting to the annexation
of South Omaha.
The park bonds, we aro assured by
members of the Park board, colleo
Ively and Individually, are really
needed for continuing the develop
ment of our park and boulevard sys
tem. Omaha has made notable prog
ress toward embellishment and beau-
Iflratlon of its parks and boule-
vords, and It must go ahead. Some
of the cost is met by current taxes,
and by special levies," but a large
part of the expenditure Is In the na
ture of permanent investment, which
may, very properly, be provided for
through bond issues spreading the
burden over a longer time, and shar
ing tt with thoso who will benefit
later. Our people should, vote "Yes"
on the pork bonds.
As to the question of annexation,
that must be decided by the people of
South Omuha, but the law requires a
concurrent affirmative majority vote
from each'of the two cities to be con
solidated. If South Omaha should vote
"Yes,'' and Omaha should vote "No,"
annexation would be defeated, and
the blame would be put upon Omaha,
whereas If Omaha should vote "Yes,"
It will bo up to South Omaha to ac
cept or reject the Invitation. Omaha
has heretofore voted for annexation,
and should do so again,, irrespective
of the attltudo of South Omaha
In its proposal for a congressional
definition of the terms upon which
"big business" may operate, the Illi
nois Manufacturers' association, wo
think, needlessly raises the question
whether biff business- Is to continue.
There la no serious doubt of Its con
tinuation and tho terma of of its con
tinuation have been explicitly stated.
They are simply to "live and let
live." In other words, Mr. Taft has
plainly stated on several occasions
that ' if th large corporations re
mained in business It would be by
competing and not by throttling com
petition and bis attitude toward the
protection of industry is too well
known to' need reiteration!,
Before proceeding toe far with
public condemnation of the Sherman
law as an obsolete statute, It would
seem advisable for big business to
stop and ask Itself whether It baa
exhausted its efforts to comply with
the law and do business legally. It
la difficult to believe that the law
as interpreted In the Standard Oil
case la entirely inapplicable to pres
ent conditions. Tbere la no Intentloa
of disorganising Industry; rather this
law and the supreme fourt's con
struction of it recognlxe the fact that
under modern condition of Industry
capital achieves Its most efficient
and economical results when organ
laed for large operatlone. The
court "rule of reason" admits at
once the distinction between lawless
combinations and big corporations.
which la made a pivotal point In the
plea of the ' Illinois Manufacturers'
a.-soclatlon, and It seems that all the
government is asking of big business
la that It demand nothing more thai
a square deal.
It remains to be seen whether con
gress will amond the Sherman law.
With all tbe criticism of the so-
called "legislative decisions," con
gress refusal or failure to do some
thing to make the law more modern
and wleldy In Its applicability forced
upon tbe courts the necessity for Its
Interpretation. Tbe president aeeua
to think the law Is not now lacking
In definltenesa and that with fear
less and faithful administration back
of It, can be made quite effectual and
fair to big as well as. little business,
which la also entitled to a hearing.
Drinkiajr, Here and Abroad.
Despite the fact that tbe United
States consumes mpre beer than any
other nation, Americana are far from
being the greatest beer drinkers.
Their per capita consumption Is only
20.09 gallons a year as compared
with 66.20 of the Belgians, 31.44 of
of the United Kingdom, 6.47, Ger
many and 21.98, Denmark. Our ag
gregate consumption is greater be
cause our population Is greater and
It must be remembered that our
population Is more heterogeneous
than that of any of these other coun
tries. Perhapa that makes a big dlf
ference. Possibly assimilation of
other people swells our average.
Our per capita consumption of dis
tilled spirits and wines la also less
than that of various European couu
tries, showing further that we are
not the greatest drinkers. It our
average consumption of wine and
even whisky approached that of
France, Spain, Italy or Portugal or
even Austria, we would bate reason
for much more agitation than Is now
going on la the United States. Of
course, It Is but natural that these
southern European countries, where
wine Is more abundant and cheap,
would consume mere of It than we
here In tbe United States, though we
also make a good deal of wine. But
to get an Idea of bow little we con
sume per capita aa compared with
what other countries drink, it Is in
ures ting to note that our annual per
capita consumption Is .66 gallons
a fraction over half a gallon while
France's is 28. ia gallons, Spain's
19.23, Italy's 31.17 aud Portugal's
87.39. Hut If we escape on the ploa
that the wine Is costlier here tlian in
those countries, Americans likewise
drink less distilled and malt liquors
which cannot be chnrped to the price.
Only a few states have elections
thla year, Nebraska, biting among
them, as we all know. The tendency
everywhere Is toward fewer elec
tions, as well as toward fewer elec
tive offices. The result Is brought
about In many states by providing
for biennial elections, and muklng
the terms of elective state, judicial
and county offices terminate uni
formly In the even year. Municipal
elections are still held separately,
and at odd times, but the elimination
of the off-year general election has
proved acceptable wherever brought
about, for no state we know of which
has gone over to the biennial election
system has ever gone back to the an
Nebraska Is to tote a constitu
tional amendment for biennial elec
tions up or down next year. Pre
sumably, there will be no outRpoken
opposition to It, and its only danger
of failure will come from Indlffer
enre or neglect of the voters. It Is
for that reaaon we call attention to
It now when we havo an object-les-boa
right beforq us. If the proposi
tion to abolish one-half of our elec
tions could be submitted next week,
we aro confident it would carry al
The Men and Religion Forward
movement seems to bo proceeding
along tho sanest lines pursued by
any of the varloua church enter
prises In late years. Perhaps It is
because it was founded and is being
promoted by hard-hcuded laymen
who aro used to sano methods In
business outside of the work of ex
tending the gospel. It evidently
rests, first, upon the broad basis that
the church has a mission to perform,
which It has aot been performing as
well as It should, that mission being
'to help the world In solving Its prob
leuis. It can da this better when it
gets Into closer, working relations
with the world. The present move
ment for once recognises thla.
If you were going to hire a cnshlcr

OMAHA, Nov. 4. To the F.dltor of The
Bee. Rryan, Champ Clark, and Oscar
Underwood Sir. Clark has been In Ne
braska talking progreatilve politics. Is
Bpcalier Clark a progressive democrat?
We now ee In Missouri a contest be
tween Mr. Clark aid Mr. Folk, for tho
delegation to tiie next democratic national
convention. Suspicion Is aroued from cer
tain events with reFpcct to the Intereats
which are behind Mr. Clark's candidacy.
Those who read the controversy be
tween Mr. Rryan and Ocar L'ndrwood,
and the speech which Mr. Vnderwood
made on the floor of the house astalnnt
Mr. Hryan will recall certain facts re
specting that controversy.
First. Mr. Rryan enlled Mr. Under,
wood a prote cllonlst becnuao of certain
of his acts In conurcss.
Second. Mr. Underwood In response to
the accusation of Mr. Rryan denounced
Mr. Bryan In tho severest terms becnune
of the accuaation, anil there Immediately
followed a controversy ' between Mr.
Bryan and Mr. Underwood as to the oc
currence of certain events In a secret cau
cus of the democrats. Clark and Under
wood were both In that caucus, and Clnrk
thoroughly understood the actual pro
ceedings of the caucus.
Third. When Mr. nderwood made that
speech tn the house against Mr. Bryan,
he denied certain relations which he had
with the special Interests, that is, Wall
Now, If Speaker Clark Is on actual
progressive democrat, as he would- have
the public believe, why did he sit In the
house and hear Mr. Underwood misrepre
sent Mr. Rryan. and deny his relation to
Wall street, while corporation democrats
cheered, knowing that Mr. Underwood
misrepresented tbe actual events of that
It will be remembered that Mr. Norrls
made the statemont that he was of a
notion to take the floor In the defense ot
Mr. Bryan. Mr. Clark, If you are what
you want people to believe, why did
you sit under the infamous language ot
Mr. Underwood and refuse to make a
statement as to the exact position that
Mr. Underwood took In that caucus?
The people will keep tn mind that Mis
souri Is to be the flrat battleground of
the campaign of 1913. It has too much
of the appearance that Clark is being
backed by a barrel of money from Wall
street to get that delegation from Folk.
It has tha appearance that Wall street
has a card up Its sleeve la this Clark
The people seem to be of the opinion
that progressive democrats are all made
of the MBit material. Wall street seems
to understand that In ease of the election
of a man like Folk, some of the frenaied
financiers might go behind the bars for
continuous violations of law. It will be
well for the people to keep their eyes
on that barrel of money which comes
from Wall street.
If Stephens Is elected to congress, Hsr
man to the railway commission and Old
bam to the supreme court, there are
three men who will quietly work on the
sly for a Clark delegation in Nebraska,
and against Folk. If Wall street is to
succeed in nominating Woodrow Wilson,
and turn the country democratic, It Is
of, paramount Importance that Folk be
defeated In his own state. Wall street
will go democratio If Folk can be gotten
out of the way. Tho fact is that the
long heads of Wall street have planned
to get a candidate against Folk.
