It was not tho fault of tho maniac who on terod police headquarters loaded down with tho deadly explosivo that lives and property were not blown to atoms. Even the remarkable tact fulness of tho polloo officers, with out other unaccountable Interven tion, at this distance, seems scarcely adequate to avert disaster. But tho point of general concern Is this dynamlto nnd other high explosives are too oasy to got. They seem to be procurable somehow by anyonn who wants them, whothor he be' a maniac or a desperado careless of his own and others' lives. Tho explosive must bo put out of the reach of reckless people. It should not be obtalnablo at all except for legitimate purposes by persons of known character- Not t6 restrict Its salo nnd use by law In to make It a menace to noddy. In tho right eous outcry against "gun-totlng," an offectlvo protest should also go out against the Indiscriminate sale, transportation and use of these more dangerous Instruments of outlawry.

In being designated for cotloctlon of customs duties on importod arti cles destined to Nebraska, Omaha gains a privilege It should have had nil tho tlmo. Why this convenience was so long foregono Is hard to un derstand, It appears, however, that it was only necessary to call the omis sion to proper attention to hava it corrected, It is a good thing, there fore, that ono of Omaha's alert citi zens had an artlole shipped to him from Europe and held for duty at Chicago, for hlB protest has brought tho conccflfilqn to Omaha.

The great rush for government Jobs under th Wilson admlnUtratlqn haa be gun. Democrats from the -four -corners of the United States and even from abroad are already starting their run toward the pie counter, which haa been closed tight against them for sixteen years. Before the Mimpede ! over thy country will again have witnessed-scene that made Cleveland's administration memorable, the office seekers, especially from the south, crowding the cheap boarding houses In the national capital, besieging the White House and congress, some of them flat broke and living from hand to mouth, and many of them In the end turning their faces toward home under the firm Impression that the whole world, and particularly President Wilson, Is heartleM and unworthy of true demo cratic support. Orover Cleveland for weeks and montha had to face this hungry office seeking horde. It made his llfo miserable and Mr. Wilson's friends arc already acknowl edging that at the very best he has a most trying cxperionqe ahead of him. It Is difficult to give an accurate state ment of tho exact money value In salaries that will bo at the disposition of Presi dent Wilson after March 4 next, but it has been estimated generally by several competent authorities that the total will not fall far short of $30,000,000 a year. If i-resident Wilaon should yield to the de mands that will surely be made upon him for the revocation of the executive order putting the fourth-claxa postmas ters under the civil or classified service this immense sum will be Increased. When the army of democratic office seekers awoop down upon this rich field, Wilson will havo a mighty hard time In keeping his face set toward civil service reform and retaining tho ground that has already been gained by the Taft and other administrations. President Wilson's available patron are disbursements will be much larger than the list which Orover Cleveland had at his disposal when he entered office In 1884. after the democrat had bean out In the cold for twenty-eight long years. The number of offices since Cleveland's first administration has in creased enormously. The great bulk of the tsaOO.OOO or mora which President Wilson may distribute among Ms faithful followers without broaklng Into the present civil service field comes from the salaries of post masters in the first, seeond and third olsses. The combined salaries of the offices In these claaaes amount to IK 000, 000 annually. Here are Forae of the juiciest of the plums In this basket: New Tork, Chicago, Philadelphia and Boston, JS.0CO each; Brooklyn. Bt Louis, Cleveland, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Omaha, Buffalo, San Francisco, Milwau kee, Cincinnati. Newark, New Orleans, Washington, Lb a Angeles, Minneapolis, St. Pattt, Indianapolis and a few other cities, ,000 each. All of these are first class offices. There are all told 424 first claas offices, second class offices, paying froth ROOO to 15,000 a year, and 6.K3 third clans offloes, with salaries ranging from J1.000 to M.0O0. The best paying Jobs within President Wilson gift will be the ten foreign am bassadorships, each with a salary of 117,500; thn nine cabinet posts, with 12.000 each, and the 'Seven Panama canal com missioners; the chief engineer, with a sal ary of J15.000. and the others $14,000 each; several other canal tone Jobs with sal aries ranging from $3,006 to $7,000 each; from one to five assistant secretaryships In each department, averaging about ll.WO each; two commissioners of the District of Columbia, $S,000 each; tho public printer, $3,000; several members of tho civil service and other commtstilons, aver aging about $5,000 ench; tho collector of the port of New Tork, with $7,0X1, and other Important collectorshlps, There are eight foreign ministers re ceiving $11,000 each, twenty-four receiving $10,000. eaci, and one. a minister resident, with a salary of $3,000. The grand total available for distribution by Mr, Wilson In the appointment of United States am bassadors and ministers will be $516,000, divided among forty-two Hrolntees.

OMAHA, Nov. 20, To the Editor of The See: Every effort that makes for musical naivete and for idealism of the heart brings a period of true musical creation nearer to our land. Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Kelly's chinning folk song recital last night had a mission whlen only requires understanding to be loved. Does anyone minx u an easy matter to arrange a true folk song recital? In fact, the folk song demands an unusual degree of musi cal Inwardness. And as for the musical mission of the folk song, I would range that with the literary mission of a peo ple's simplest ereatlons, the nursery rhymes, the ballads, the Idiomatic prov erbs, the elementary expressions of a people's soul. No ona is liable to feel deeply a language, and master it from within, who has passed up Its kinder garten stage. The great writers were first nourished by the mother's milk ot their language. The folk song has just this place. You can sooner get a vocalist to learn an operatic aria tolerably well than to sing a pure folk song and waReu the folk Ing thrill In hearts, it Is easier to learn a Ilach fugue than to play a church hymn ot the grand type beautifully. Choral and hymn organists of the great and glorious kind are as rare almost as whits elephants. Society rushes In ex quisite robings of the body to "hear the grand opera," To see grant: opera were no doubt otun nearer th. truth. How can theso favored masses expect to un derstand the mighty music of Lohengrin, or the orchestral sublimities ot Beetho ven's mighty Idealism, If their heart, I say their heart, lacks th fins sense of the simple folk song, whtoh voices In Imple forms the naive confessions of tha musical soulT We wonder when w will have abun dance ot big "muslo la our land? When w. obtain s, folk soul rich epough for the i musical wonders of the tolk soar, Dvorak , In his "New World" symphony for or- chestra, that marv.l of opul.nt Idealism and yearnings of spirit, boat low enough to use native American themes from th. southland. He was just sufficiently big of soul to do that. In his notes at the folk song recital last evening Mr. Kelly made some not only plquaatly stated, but also informing raferencoa to the value of th. negro folk song. If his fine words, brimful of tne right kind ot Idealism, felt In good soil, tha harvest of this song re cital Is yet to be expected. No nation ever grew Into tig music, or any big art whatsoever, that failed to grow Into It from th. nlv, immediate, almple-eoulad, warm axpresatons of life as felt by the common paopls. Importations may b. made, but great art cannot be imported. or imitated, Thirty years ago -we sang gladly "Horn., Sweet Horn.," Tha Old Ouken Ducket," "When the Swallows Homeward Fly" and kin songs, I .am, personally, foolish enough to bsllsv. that we were nearer true muala then than at present la the era of the "ragtime" that finds h home Just as often in the glided salons of the prosperous few as In th. huts of . . .. . . . ... .... umununaio. im mis aiuerence. that society will, of course, rush off, now and then to see grand opera. Then tell me why Is It that In all centers of our land, wh.r. you have a strong admixture ot the foreign born and their Immediate descendants you have a musical center? Now. why? Because those people feel th. simple folk song. That disposes them to the hlgheet- forms of muslo, as soon as education permits the grasping of more complicated musical form. Yes, Mr. Kelly, you are on the right track with your folk song recitals. Tho woeful lament over the unmusical spirit of our beautifully blessed city will mora quickly, turn from minor into major by th. education from the simplest mutlcal forms than by any other method. Chicago boasts ot Its grand orchestra. Rut look at the names ot the players T On. or two sre "Americans." the rest foreigners. Uut we want a home-born rnusk: some day, That must grow up from, the folk heart, through the unsophisticated ex pression of our people's heart. ,T1H that day we will be able to point only to our skill In Importation. With the recasting of the national soul. duo to emigration, I believe that a new period of music will be bom. I am optimistic enough to think it not more distant than that some' of us may see it. Aurora Is already in tho eastern sky of that wished for day. Mr. and Mrs. Kelly have no doubt given her oulto a fow of the dew-pearled- roses sho, is ecaiterlrig over thesa western prairies, the prairies of which TVtlllam Cullen Bryant sang when he whispered aloud cfie secret ot their beauty: '"The peace of the plains." If we are Idealistic, why may not Omaha become a .center of musical creationT If we will be wise enough to go through the kindergarten of the'folk song and simple forms of music, why not gradually an inher musical life be born here that will bloom forth in Illy covered fields of mu sical splendor? Which, perhaps, were something to be proud of, at I?ast as much so as of our packing Industries and bank accounts. A rich nation is the na tion with a rich sonl. ADOLF HUJVT.

Nov. a.-To the Editor of The Bee; J notice with Interest the contro versy between the street car company, the Commercial club and city commissioners. relative to winch Blue the street cars should stop. You are right in your con tentlon that street car patrons are little Interested whether cars stop on ona aids or the other, but aro more' interested In obtaining more frequent service.. Take, for instance, the West Leavenworth line, during the rush hours In the morning anJ evening, it Is not a question of seating capacity; it is more a question as to whether or not passengers will bo able to get on. This line ts discriminated against in favor of the west side Han soom park, and many people find it neces sary In the evening to take the west side Hanseom park line as far as Park avenus and Leavenworth with the hope that at that- point they will be -able to gain ac cess to some "tlat-wheeled, discorded car" from- another line that the street car company In all their gsodnees of heart have seen fit to place In sen-ice on West Leavenworth street. It lies absolutely In the power of the city commission, lf they were not sound asleep and blind to th. neds of th. public, to remedy conditions of this kind, If the city commission passed an ordi nance, as city councils have done in other cities, denying rbe right ot the street car company to collect fares until seats were provided, our poverty-stricken street car company would soon raise sufficient funds to handle their traffic. Or if the city commission would not permit the street rar company to charge the same rata ot fare from those passengers who are now being handled more in the style of live Stock instead ot human beings, then in that event that poor corporation owned by "widows and orphans" perhaps would seo their way clear to provide better facilities, C.
