' Just a little spring house cleaning thai will be finished in lta own brief tiro," la tha way In which A. McKnlght. vice-president of tha Fidelity Mutual Ufa Insurance company of Philadelphia refera to tha sweeping Investigations of tha moat gigan tie Ufa lnauranca companies of the United States. Mr. McKnlght la In Omaha. Ha talked very hopefully of the lnauranca outlook and aald conditions were good for pros perity with the companies in general, in spite of tha reaulta of the recent Investiga tions. "The stability of any one of the big companies never has yet been questioned," said Mr. McKnlght. "They are all per fectly capable of fulfilling every contract they have made. It is not a question of stability which has aroused the public, but one of administration. The millions in funds of some of the companies evi dently have been misapplied to the ad vantage of the officers of the company and the financial detriment of the policy hold era. This InvcKtigs.tinn Is merely a spring house cleaning. You know when your wife is cleaning house, it" In, not very comfort able around home, but when she has finished things are much niter than they were before. When this Insurance house cleaning is over, these companies will be stronger anil better than they ever were before, and belter still, they will be com pelled to do their best by the policy holder, Welcome the Investigations. "A11 the companion which have been con tent with a small but steady growth, have conducted their business along right lines, anil have looked to the lnturests of the policy holder, re glad to see these In vcetlgutloiii. hue it makes things a Hi tie harder at present for tha agent In the field, it Is the beet In the long run Come of, the companies whose affairs are lu'lnj looked Into are doing less business than they were, but the others, I think, aro doing more. For our own company, I can say October was the best month of the year and much better than the sam month of lust year. "There ought to be more consideration on tha part of state authorities for the Interest of the policy holder," said Mr. McKnlght. reierrlng to the exclusion of the New York Life f-ora Missouri. "Every thing done detrimental to the business of the company works eh Injury to the people who hold that company's policies. The Missouri authorities ought to look to that Their action, however, does not mean what msny people suppose. It does not mean a discontinuance of premium on policies already issued and thereby a cancellation of contracts; It means Only that the com pany shall not write new business in the state." -K wedding rings.

Between the curing of the skin and the making of a jacket similar to the one shown in the picture, must come the process of dyeing. In all the large cities of the world there are men with varying degrees of skill who dye sealskins. All the most skillful dyers of seal skins live in London. They possess secretsun known elsewhere. So it is that the choice skins must be London dyed. . They cost some more and are worth much more, A A twenty-four inch Gordon jacket of best London-dyed Alaska Seal will cost tbis-year $400.

OMAHA, Nov. U.-To the Editor of The Bee: Heretofore I have studiously avoided discussion of any question in the public press. I cannot, however, resist the inclination In this case to warmly commend your Sunday's editorial on the subject of Increasing the salaries of the grade teach ers In the city school. Next to their Influence In the home life comes the contact In the school room, which has tnoet to do with the child's proper mental and moral development. Appreciat ing the importance of this ' contact of child and teacher, we have properly pro vided a long term of preparation on the part of all applicants for positions In our rchouls, then offer them at the outset no more net Income above living expenses than the taxpayers of Omaha pay their ex perienced household employes. The simple j fact is that the beginning salary of teach ers In Omaha schools would fall to secure teachers except for the reason that they ran board and room at their homee. Thla 'S an Injustice to the teacher, her parents and the pupils for many of the best quali fied' women seek other employment where appreciation of their services finds ' ex pression In adequate remuneration. There Is no calling In life of educated employment more taxing on the nerves or more enervating to the system than that of the faithful teacher, and in that case at least, the "laborer is worthy of her hire." I wish to commend your suggestion of generosity to the teacher, In exchange for which let us confidently expect gener- ' ous giving of herself and her accomplish ments to the onoomlng citizens of Omaha. t H. N. WOOD. Protest on the Sword Tax. OMAHA. Nov. 13. To the Editor of The Dee: The abolition of the sword tax, as It may Justly be called, affecting cadets of tha Omaha High school, would certainty be looked upon with favor by the parents of lesser means and the cadets who are earning their own living while In school. The graft consists of the present captain collecting 60 cents from privates and tl from officers of their company for the pur- pone of buying a sword for his predecessor snd expecting In turn for his generosity a sword next year, and in order to be classed among the generous It is best to contribute to this 'charitable cause even though he must deny himself to do so. The writer has voiced the sentiment of a majority of his comrades and finds that many contribute reluctantly and not lur any great appreciation for retiring exp lains, whom many have never heard of until they were asked to donate. This custom should be discontinued, as It means a sacrifice of many for the grati fication of one. A CADET. VOTE ON THESCH00L BOARD Secretary Bargress Succeeds la Get ting; Quorum to Canvass the Vote. By using the telephone for an hour and threatening to call the police to net as an escort, Secretary Burgess of the Board Of Education auccceded In getting a quo rum present last night U canvass the vote oast st the recent election. Acting under the provisions of the statutes, two dis interested electors were appointed to make the tabulations, James Rogers and A. A. Crandell acted in this capacity. Tha total vote for each of the six candidates was as follows: Christie, 8,2i9; Cole, 8.244; Detweller, 8.222; Kennedy, 8.2S6; Rice, 8,221; Harding, 8.117. Harding lost 100 votes In the fourth precinct of the Seventh ward, and while the board thought this was through an error of the clerks of election, the votes could not be counted for him. The amount of money to be paid the clerks and Judges of election was referred to the attorney for a report at the next meeting.

DEPLORES LOSS OF JEWISH NATIONALITY Proposes to Allow All Who wish ta Remain, bat Asks that Way Re Cleared for These w ho Wish to Gu. Ths address of Ieon Zolotkoff of ChlcaaA delegate to the International Zionist con vention at Basel. Switzerland, delivered at Creighton hall Monday evening, was lis tened to by 4 large audience of both sexos of Hebrews, resident of this city- anj vicinity. Dr. Philip Sher acted as chair man of the meeting, and in a brief address introduced the speaker as one of the fore most Zionists of this country, as well as a man well versed In the law. In his re marks Dr. Sher said: It Is hardly to bo expected that nwny of Us In America would care to leave this country, because the flag Is too diar to us. We can, however, ileplure with tears and anguish the atrocities pe rpetrated upon our race In barbarous Russia, and plead (or the law of humanity in their helinlf, which is even a higher law than that of property, But crying can do the homeless, persecuted Jkws of Hussia no good. We must raise money to assist the Zionists in securing a home somewhere for these homeless and distressed of our race. Pleada for Buffering Jews. Dr. Sher then Introduced Mr. ZolotkolT. who said In part: t Wish to talk to you right at tha outset and try to lay before you the best argu ment that 1 can. that which Is best for our oppressed people In Russia. We cannot re frain from feeiing miserable over their calamities and renect the gloom that per vades the civilized world over the horrible butcheries of the Jews in that Ood-aceurwil land. Tney arc of our llesh and our bono and we will have to go deep Into our Dockets for their rrlief. Are tnese perse cutions to be the dawn of a new liberty like unto Aurora rising from the ocean, but In reality a people rising from a river of blood? it is a question that only Zionists can answer. No matter what be the cause for the advancement of liberty, the Jew must be slain, and 1 fear that in two months from now even these massacres will be forgotten. Yet the time will come when the killing off of Jews for pastime will cease. They tell us that the Zionists are speaking In the language of vesterdav. bui this Is not the talk of wise men. Our short sightedness causes us to err In our Judg ment. Zionists say that there is a part of the Jewish race that does not want to le ex tinguished, but that it may live nd be come useful. The rights of every Individ ual are bounded by his neighbor. So it is 'with nations. The Zionist seeks to take up the broken thread of Jewish history and to restore the Jewish nation m Its old home In Palestine. We have watted 2.000 years and can wait a little longer. Be cause we are nationless we are helpless. We are a peoplo without a home and without a national credit. As a nution we could not borrow a dollar, whatever we might borrow as' an individual. Zionism not a new thing. It is centuries old. old as the Jewish people, but the seventh Zionist convention, held at Basel. Swttxer land, Is comparatively a new movement. t was made up truly or a body or jews from all over the world. Nationality of the Jews. The Zionists put the question squarely before you, is your nationality worth pre serving? Zionism has but recently cre ated the Jewish Colonial hank with 230.000 peoplo back of It. It is for Israel, for a Jewish national fund. We have also issued penny stamp to add to this lund for the purpose of buying land In Palestine on which to establish the nucleus for our ew national lite and furnish a .home for ewlsh people. We - have accomplished much in the past seven or eight years, and could accomplish more with your help. but you do not seem to care to give us that help. Palestine can support 6.0UO.0O0 people. Those who desire to remain In America, Germany, and France can do so, but let those go who desire to perfect a Jewish nationality and resume our his tory after a lapse of '-a.OOO' vears.' The Greeks, Roumanians r and Macedonians nave, established nationalities within the past century, and why, .cannot the Jew with his fruaalltv. tiride. talent Itlii en. ergyT He can, and so lie cab SKcend to the highest rouna tn ths ladder of deve onment and take his place among the nations of mi worm. Mr. Zolotkoft's address was delivered nrst in English, after which he spoke briefly In the Jewish tongue. M. Levy and Harry Zlmman, both of Omaha, spoke briefly, endorsing the utterances of the principal speaker, after which the meeting closed. . ; SpeCl&i Today a Sale of Men's Fur-Lined Coats We have purchased from one of the leading metis furrier s of the east his surplus stock of htgh grade fur lined coats.

A venerable stranger, evidently In a mel low mood, undertook to send a bottle of beer away by mall at the Omaha postoflW Sunday afternoon. He had imbibed so much of the Gambrinlan fluid that his charity was boundless and he thought a friend at Pa pillion would enjoy a bottle, sj he put double the price of It In stamps on the bottle and started to deposit it In the package delivery department of the post offlce. Watchman Shugart told him It wouldn't go, and so the old fellow waddled out of the office. But In descending the steps he slipped on a match or cigar stub and the bottle fell from his hands and was broken, spilling the contents on the side walk. The old fellow remarked as he viewed the wreck: "That doggoned thing cost me a quarter, and I put 50 cents worth of stamns on it, and now look at it. I'm out 76 cents and a dollar's worth of fun.

The petition has been declared legal by the city attorney. The paving bonds to pro vide for the payment of the Intersection paving were defeated at the last eleotlon, but as it would be impossible to begin the work before the early part of next sum mer, those asking for the paving are not worrying.
