South Pakota is also having Utile trouble over its election, ballot, the courts being called upon to say whether all the primary nominations are not illegal and void. Nebraska has not yet gotten quite that far. Can't Give it Away. As a last resort after repeated invi tations for proposals, the county board has come to the conclusion that the cheapest way to get .rid of the old court house is to give it to somebody with $5,000 to boot. The gift, of course, has a string to it that requires the recipient to take down the structure In workmanlike man ner, and remove the materials within fixed time limit. But that does not change the anomaly that in this bustling, thriving city, a building which cost $200,000 cannot be given away In these prosperous times when people are too busy to take It. We doubt If such a condition was ever before presented or whether it would be duplicated in any other country In the world. ; oklnBaciwanl This Day In Omalia COMPILED FSIOM BE FlL& sH SEPT.

Carrying Out Harriman'g Flans, More than ordinary Interest at taches to the announcement by the Uniea Pacific-Southern Pacific man agement that It will before long be gin the work of "boring a hole through the Sierra Nevada moun tains to avoid lifting trains over the summit. The late E. H. Harrlmaa made a similar announcement In al most those exact words nine years ago. and it ia bia plan that is now to be executed. While addressing a group of newspaper men at East Reno, Nev., on November 27, 1903, at the conclusion of the memorable trip across the Lucln-Ogden cut-off. to dedicate that strip of road over Great Salt Lake, Mr. Harrlman was asked by one of hi interviewers what was to be bis next "big task. Here is his reply taken from 'The Bee of November 2&, 1903: Our next big job Is io bore a hole through the Sierras. I don't know Just when we will begin .actual work, but soon, tor all ur surreys are made. By this tunnel and other- new tracks we wtH eliminate thirty-seven mtlaa of thooe snowsheds, leaving only four mile. We will not materially- shorten the distance. That is not the prime object, but we will reduce grades vastly. For Instance, we will be able to save lifting our train B0 feet and In some cases feet That la where mlllioiw of dollars will be saved, hence earnlnga greatly Increased. ; The maximum grade in the Sierras la virtually 7,i00 feet above sea level and the road winds around devious canyons and passes through forty-one miles of snowshed to get over the mountains. It believed that this tunnel of nearly six miles would now be completed had Mr. Harrlman lived. This is but one example of where this great railroad builder's work, survives him in incompleted projects. Thirty Tears Ago , The city council wrangled over the elec tion of a president pro tern In the place of President Stull as between Martin Dunham and Charles Kaufmann. The betels are filling up with delegates to the Impending republican state conven tion, and candidates galore have opened headquarters. The Omaha Horse Railway company Is laying track over the new Saunders utreet bridge, and ears will soon be run ning to the regular terminus in plaoe of th wagons that have been doling business for a week past. The 6tae Bank of Nebraska, founded In 1870, has been reorganized as a na tional band under the name ef the Mer chants National bank, and will start with a capital of $100,000 and a surplus of Mrs. General O'Brien left for Chicago.

The prospective increase, it waa stated, was not due to an enlarged consumption consequent oil the restricted output of anthracite, but rather to the Inability of the railroad to carry an the coal needed.

Seed Selection a a Business, The tact of several 'Nebraska young women graduating from the Department of Agriculture at Wash ington into places of responsibility as seed experts, Boone In state univer sities, while naturally gratifying to their neighbors, ia most significant ia this, that It shows what a potent Influence the government ia exerting toward implanting the principle of in tensive agriculture,' The first steps la the process of making two blades of grass grow where but one grew before la the proper selection of seed and proper preparation of the soil. The federal government Is doing a great work, therefore, in thus foster ing this movement and co-operating in. It with state' educational Institu tions." Together they are making the selection of seed for agriculture and horticulture science and a business. Of course, this opens up to young men and women lucrative fields of service, but that is only in cidental to the main purpose of im proving methods of farming.

They The stir made over the revival of the old controversy about the origin of life seome somewhat excessive. What has happened, as a matter of fact, beyond aa expression of opinion by an eminent i entist on a subject which has often been opened and then closed again for lack of knowledge? In the quest for the misidqg llnk between the animate and the inani mate we are really not far in advance of Huxley and the "bathybius;" what Changes ia not so much the frontier of knowledge as our attitude to It At one time science is ready weakly to surrender this no man's land and to forbid trespass on pain of excommunication. But pres ently there is a revulsion in favor of a forward policy, and great expectations are formed, to be blighted m their turn. The progress of science is immense, but not in the direction of the unknowable. If the secret of spontaneous generation should be found its practical consequences might or might not be Important, but lu either case It would not help us to read the riddle ot the universe. Since Frank lin's day we have been generating and using electricity, yet we are no nearer to an understanding of it. Whether one talks of atoms with Lucretius or of elec trons with Kelvin makes neither an atom nor an electron of difference so far as the problem of problems goes. Nor la any thing lot or gained by supposing life to have originated on this planet Instead of having been transported, for example, from other worlds (n a cloud of meteoric dust according to the poetic hypothesis Of Arrhenlus, Ute, unless eternal, began somewhere, and what significance has "here" or "there"1 In the contemplation of the universe? Aa in the time ot Lucretius the theme la still lu the realm of poetry rather than of science, and the one contemporary En glish poet who has bad the courage to essay the epic Alfred Noyes, the author ef "Drake,", now contributes to the Dally Mall a short poem with the baldly nclen- ...... .

" Descend, descend grade by dissolving grade; We follow unafraid. A better spirt this, than that of some excellent clergymen who, when foolishly Interviewed on the subject made haste to enter a denial that life could possibly 'originate by the operation of natural forces as though they or anyone else knew, what "natural" forces are or what they can achieve! If the poet accepts the challenge of science, the scientist can do no less than accept the challenge of the poet: Go back you must Far, far below the dust V The beginning of life is far front the end Of the quest; the scientist must overleap (he "fluming ramparts of the world!" the physicist must go on where the WoWv gist leaves off for finding no trace of life to take hire further.

Kipling has said in one of his ballads that "the east ta east and the west Is west, and never the twe shall meet;" and we have accepted the remark as a generality, expressing what we" vaguely felt to be trie truth. It . required an event Uke. the suicide of General NogI, the hero, of Port Arthur, and his countess to startle one Into a full realization of the fact It la impossible te suggest a parallel from modern western life (hat would enable one to conceive the motives which Impelled the actors in this strange tragedy. If Mottke had shot him self at the bier ot Emperor William I his conduct would have been comparable, per haps, to that of Nogi; but the similarity would have been merely superficial. In a' sense the letter's act was Inspired by his attachment to his departed ruler; but the motive was net simply affection. It Waa far more complex, and, from the Japanese potnt of view, far more exalted. A delro not to be parted even In death from one who was. dear to the bereft mourner would not pa beyond our com prehension. But Nogi'a act la regarded la Japan as a tribute to the manes of the departed emperor and to the latter's di vine powers and gifts. When the master spirit ha flown there ia nothing 'left on earth for those who served tt to live for. This Is the oriental, and, specifically, the, Japanese conception. For a modern parallel we must look ta India, where the widow who casts : herself. Into her deceased husband's f u- 1 neral pyre Is honored and by her act con fers honor at the same time. In the history of our. own race It would be necessary to grope into the dim past to find anything suggesting the Japanese custom. And, while the companions tn arms of ancient Germanic, Scythian or pre-Homerio Grecian chieftains some times immolated themselves, the sacri fices were more frequently Involuntary, and slaves were dispatched to keep a dead ruler company in the spirit world. The Samurai custom, which we have Just seen exemplified, is a survival of what we should call barbarism. It brings home to us the fact that the Japanese, so thoroughly modernized In- many re spects, are In. other essentials not far removed from their ancestors of 2,000 years ago. It would have been extraor dinary, Indeed, If the Japanese had been able to slough off In half a century all the characteristics of a bygone civilisa tion, to free themselves of which men of European nationality required two or more millenniums, 'Think before prudent person. i always do you, stwak, ftd the. so." replied Senator Sorghum.

Neb., Sept K.-To the Editor of The Bee; May I have Just a little of your valuable space for a few questions? If it was such aa outrage to seat two Tart delegates from California and ten from Washington In place ot the only Roosevelt delegates who had any claim to a contest even, what would It have been if they could have seated ten t'mes that number, who (their own members of the committee said), had no claim whatever on seata? But had they con trolled the convention in Chicago and turned that neat trick would that have been different from what they complain of. Yes, because they tried to thrust In delegates that had no right to even con test for a seat.

Kearney Hub: Kearney people who were fortunate enough to hear Superin tendent Graff of the Omaha city schools speak at the Normal chapel last summer were of the impression that he was an exceedingly sensible man.

The sentiment of the mar Jority of the cltlsens and taxpayers of the state Is probably against any re location of the capital. If there Is a suf ficient demand for a vote on the question let tt be organized now, If not, let the majority rule and let Nebraska begin the work of securing the funds and construct ing a new and adequate building at Lin coln at once. Albion Argus. What a lovely sight it was to see the people who live In the "Holy City,' as the barbarians who live in Omaha have called Lincoln, go down to Omaha In carloads and join the Ak-Sar-Ben lodge and take the degrees, and then see Omaha and South Omaha recip rocate by making a great effort to please Uneqln by going to the state fair by tralnloads and swarms of automobiles on "Omaha, day" at the fair. It Is well for brethren to dwell together in unity, and the example ot Omaha and Lincoln should be followed by the towns tn Boone county and this vicinity. Waterloo Gazette: It makes us just a bit tired to have, the Commercial club of Omaha sending out so much stuff about the selection of seed corn and quoting Prof. Pugsley aa saying there Is no sur plus of seed corn ia Nebraska, and coa dltlons are such that good seed may be secured only with the greatest care and favorable fail weather. Of course It Is possible that there will be poor seed this year, but Judging from conditions in this county we believe there Is little or no cause for alarm over the situation. Nev ertheless we urge our farmer friends to make preparations to gather their seed corn early, as advised by the people quoted above, and take necessary means to keep It safely for the spring seeding. Nebraska grown corn la best for Ne braska, and it to well to start early to get it ready. ; . Official Beeecmm ( Babies, Baltimore American.
