It would bo fnr nioro compatible with national dlgintty to provide tho pension out of tho public treasury. Tho Bovcrnmont has several times allowed widows of cx-presldents $6,000 a year, so tho present sug gestion violates no established prlnclplo or polity. On tho other hand, wo bellcvo It would prove generally acceptable, for the convic tion Is growing as a product of an Intensely pragmatic ago, that tho country should continue to havo nt Its service the men It has exalted to its highest office and that udequato provision 'should bo mado to main tain tho dignity of that offtco In former as well as present incum bents. Tho history of tho United States la darkened more than onco by tho blight of adversity permitted to fall upon an ex-president,, yhllq there la no immlnenco of another such contingency, other cogent reasons urge action. It Would bo entirely incompatiblo howorcr, with tho spirit of a free nation to permit tho pension to bo paid from the pro ceeds of what oppoara-to be a pri vate philanthropy. ' .

By a Vote of XU to 9)7 the. British House of Commons, last Tuesday, adopted the government's financial proposal for Ireland under home rule, thereby rescind ing the unionist resolution approved by a snap judgment vote on Monday of last week. The net result of the unionist trick division Is a week's delay In reach Ing a final vote on the measure. A elev- mnt failed of results for the schemers, But It threw a searchlight on the Intense partisanship of the aristocratic poli ticians, who Invariably pose as exemplars of British honor and decorum. Last June when obstructive tactics provoked a riot In tho Hungarian Diet, requiring police nnd military to maintain order, England viewed the affair with smug astonish ment, deplored tho sanguinary southern temperament, and by way of contrast pointed with prldo to the calm, deliber ate, unemotional superiority of British wayu. Hlmllar reflections havo been heard when tho French assembly Indulged In a "shindy" Or a partisan ruction broke out In the American congress. Tet the House of Commons on Wednesday of last week lacked only the military to provide a replica of the Hungarian Diet scenes, end for no other cause than the failure of a trick division. Participants In the rowdyism, the howling, throwing of books, and boorish epithets, ore of the aristocratic caste, beneficiaries of privi lege, proud sons of opulent sires, regarded as the best types of British respectabll Ity, Hut when the government decided to overturn snap Judgment, the ruffian ism, of casta burst through the veneer and dlsplsyod its true colors. Only one news paper of the tory persuasion has the courage to condemn the national disgrace. Asqnlth, ike Achteter. -featured by the record of achievements the British liberal ministry affords a con crete base for .the unshaken confidence of t supporters. It has effected a mighty constitutional change In limiting the veto of the House of Lords, shitted the tax burdens to the shoulders of wealth, Inaugurated old ago and unem ployed pension, wcathtred the storms of labor atrjkes and calmed the fears of WT lh Germany, Such a record of re suits accomplished upder great diffi culties, calling into action skillful leader ship, sustained patience, constant watch fulness and unflagging toll, furnish good Heasoris for the partisan rancor of the torits. The driving power and cohesion of the government party daily makes more hopeless the attacks of the opposi tion and throws in relief the mediocre leadership of tho torles. Calm and un ruffled by the stress of leadership, Prjmo Minister Asqulth drive the steam roller slowly and surely to tho appointed goal, "tie has never failed In anything he has undertaken," writes Sydney Brooks, Lon don correspondent of Harper's Weekly. "At this moment he stands head and shoulders above any map' In British PUblo life, except Mr. Balfour. As a do. bater there is nobody In the House of Commons who even approaches his deadly and lucid effectiveness. As a party leader thcro ha been no one elnco Glad stone mora aure of hlmneir, more com petent to Imposo hlf will, with a greater Instinct for command or with a firmer grasp over policy and administration alike." Campaign claptrap classing Mr. Asqulth as a tool In the hands of his colleagues and an obsequious servant of the Irish nationalists Mr. Brooks pro nounces absurdly fantastic, "if there is one thing Asqulth nover has been, and never could be, It is a time-serving poll- OleBecS Idler t Street Car Nuisance. OMAHA, Nov, -To the Editor of The Bee: I am pleased to find that one paper In Omaha has enough "spirit to at tack one of Omaha's serious problems. In the Sunday Issue of the Bee, W. W. earnestly requests the publlo to heed the old war cry; "Mova up In front!" True, tho fault Is not all on tio part of the street railway company. The habits of many street car users do little to aid the difficulty. First, there Is the persop, he or she, who cannot decide until the last moment whether he wishes to get off or not. Then he comes rushing over the corns of the ether passengers. There Is also tho ono who blockH the exit until the car comes to a completo stop, allowing no one who may be more nimble-legged to got off be fore him. There are also those who bring In large suitcases and plant them In tho aisle Alo the person who occupies the room of two, and tho man who hastily seats hlrasolf In the ptace vacated by a gentle man for the benefit of a lady. True, the cars should not bo so crowded or so late, that it should be necossarj to pass one up, but usually there is another car within sight. If the ventilation Is poor, as one reader complains, the vontllatora can bo easily ppened by any Intelligent passenger. Owing to the length of our streot cars you get oft In the middle of tho next block If you uee the front exit. This Is inconvenient when the streets are slushy. as usually only the 'crossing are kept clear. Terhaps this will explain the re luctance of some to move up front Per haps this Is an argument tor the car stopping on the near aide. The gentleman remarks that there IS room for ten people to stand. Fine! Who shall stand, a poor worklngman or girl who has been on his or her foot all day, or some shopper who has decided to come home In the rush hour? Why should anyone stand? We are not cattle to be driven "up front" In order that the least possible number' of cars may be used by the street railway company. We each pay S cents. Usually If there are seats In the forward part of the car or elsewhere, someone will find them. Again W, W. may be a stockholder in stead of a straphanger. C. P. Pair Play for Bird. BEATRICE, Neb.. Nov. a. To the Editor of Tho Bee: Would you not give this thought publicity through The Bee regarding the useless destruction of what little of th wild animals and birds we have left in .Nebraska. It I a known fact that If a strange bird or rare animal of any kind is seen at once a great crowd of men and boys Join In the chase for Its extermination. The local paper adds glory by publish ing the name of the killer Many years atro our state was famed for our many wild animals and birds na we have sees this yaluabls asset all ta of Present Interest, tlclan." Against thin masterful leader, competent ana confident, British re actionaries buffet aa uselessly and break as noisily aa angry waves on Britain' rocky headlands. Itepnbllc In JVante Only, "China s a republic n name only, The same force In control before the change are In control now." Buch Is the view expressed by J. O. P. Bland, an Englishman, for many yeara an official of the Chinese government nnd formerly secretary of Sir Itobert Hart, ef the Chinese maritime customs service. Mr, Bland I n this country to deliver a ser ies of lectures at the Lowell Institute In Boston and at Cornell university, "The nepublln of China as at present consti tuted," eald Mr. Bland In an interview, "Is merely the olfl dlspotlRm under a new name, but It would smell as sweet under any other dlelgnatlon. President Yuan, for Instance, beheads his political enemies without the slightest thought of grant ing them a trall-a policy well ingrained Into Chinese procedure, but In his caso more despotically carried out than by tho Manohus In their 'later years. The Chlncso Btudents who are led to hopeful forecasts for their country hopelessly lose touch with tho deep-rooted customs and beliefs which dominate their stay, at-home countrymen, and these are what dominate the government. They have never thought of arr election, rcglstra. tlon list, or a census of the country for election purposes. The government body at Peking Is composed merely of an Irre sponsible nnd self-elected group of polltl cal adventurers, and their position has never been regularised by the usual pro cesses of popular elections. The so-called courts of Juitlo alleged to have been Inaugurated recently exist only on paper, and their code Is constructed of the samo material. First Aids for Illiterate. The Russian government could hardly be convicted on the charge of educa-, Uonal cramming. Enlightenment of the. masses might prove annoying, If not dangerous, to the ruling system, and 1st therefore restricted to a small percent age of the population. But the benevo lent powers that be provide a system Of educational signs which are readily grasped by tho multitude of Illiterates. By painted pictures of the wares In the, shop the Russian peasant knows where he Is at. Printed signs are useless, re lates tho Oriental lleview. The baker displays counterfeit presentments of hla rolls, loaves and cakes; the fish dealer presents likenesses of tho denizens of the deep, and the tea seller hangs up a picture of teacups and saucers. The care of the sophisticated city dweller for his less favored brother docs not stop here. In order to make It easer for him to find his way about, the houses are painted in various bright colors. When he wants to go home he need not attempt to solve the puzzlo of the timetables. A simple system of bells does away with all this troube. When one bell rlpgs he stll has fifteen minutes to wait. When two are sounded he has only five minutes, and when three, peal forth his train starts. Does ho recelvo a lotter which he wshea deciphered? The payment of 2 cents to a man at the postofflce does the busi ness. Would he send a post card to someone? It can be done for IH cents. A long letter will coat him 6 cents. The addressing of a letter Is half a cent. Where shall he mall It? Over there where he sees a picture of a post card or of a letter. . but wlpod out of existence until now a mink or otter or beaver In our creeks ts a rare occurrence, whllo a stray deer Is chased over tho land by crowds and1 the news phoned from village, to town until the poor animal Is needlessly slaughtered and tho shooter a hero in the eyes of many who Uttlo think that such needless killing not only a bad example set before the youth of the land, but one of the beautiful things put here for man's enjoyment lias been killed, I want to write also of the tqulrrel family, who have already gathered In their winter supply of food and built ther winter homes. Now our people want fair play for both man and beast. I want the fathers and mothers of this state to Instruct their children of the cruelty of taking advantage Of such help less homo builders and providers as the squirrels are, and not allow the boys to go out tn the woods armed and bent on killing such beautiful creatures, as well as our other game. WILLIAM A WOLFE. Month OnmUn'A Plaint. SOUTH OMAHA. Nov. 21. To tho Editor of The Bee: I notice In the even Ing Bee "More Care for Omahu." Let us, as citizens of South Omaha, change this to "More Cars for Bouth Omaha." I talked with a man today who informed me he lived In South Omaha and worked in Omaha, in order to be at work on time he had to get up at 3:30 a. m. and walk. There are others who do the same thing. Many others are obliged to walk to their homes In South Omaha after cars have.' stopped runlnc, or wait for the morning cars. Wouldn't tt be fair to give Bouth Omaha a car once each hour after mid ntght. It sems to me there would be no mopey lost by the street car company and would be a grand, good thing for the South Omaha citizens. Rent Is tnuoh .cheaper tn Bouth Omaha and this would afford apportunlty for people to live In South Omaha and work tn Omaha. It this matter Is looked Into there would be no question as to the nec owelty of an hourly service for Bouth Omaha after midnight, till the morning service begins. C. W.
