This amendment, tho sixteenth to

tho wholo hundred and twenty-four

OMAHA. Neb. Feb. 4. To the Kdltor
of Tho Bee: Lt me say a word to the
homo owners without fire protection.
Today, one-fourth of the home owners
and tax payers In Omaha are without
water and fire protection. Most all of
this number of homo owners had to lay
small pipe-lines at an expense far above
what they would have cost If they had
city water mains In front of their pro
perty. New comes the Water board and
says, If you want water mains and fire
protection you must lay them at your
own expense, which "S per cent of the
property owners got without any special
taxes. Now, there are two ways tho
bonds voted may be paid for, viz: Hy
the earning ot the water rentals, or by
direct taxation, which everybody knows
wo are not exempt from. Wo think this
Is an Injustice because we will lose the
cost of 'our small plpe-Ilnes, besides pay
ing for the larger mains and reconnect
ing our houses again. We believe that
any court or Jury would sustain us In
this matter. If the Water board will, It
can adjust this matter In Justice to all.
If they don't know, let them consult

Whr Oral Low Nltontd lie Repealed.
SEATTLE, Wash, Feb. 2. To the Edl-
tor of The Bee: In 1911, the Nebraska
legislature passed a law requiring that
the oral method shall be used In the
Stato School for the Deaf at Omaha,
"to the exclusion of the deaf alphabet
and the sign language." The present su
perintendent has declared In writing his
Intention to convert the school Into an'
oral school and to abolish the use of
tho sign language.
This law should be repealed. Why?
Before tho law was passed, parents
could go to the superintendent and say:
"We want our children educated by the
The superintendent would reply: "Very
well, If your child shows apltude for It,
wo will teach him by the oral method."
And they did. Many children were
taught by the oral method and at the
same time given a good general educa
tion. Other parents, who had become wise
to the fact that the oral method Is not
all that Its advocates claim, would say:
"While wo want our children to learn
to speak It they can, we do not want
you to waste too much time on speech;
we rather want you to give them a good
general education so they will be able
to make their way In the world, when It
comes to earning their bread and butter."
Tho superintendent says: "Cortalnly,
that Is the policy we follow when parents
leave It to our Judgement."
Since the law was passed the same
parents make the same request as be
fore. To the former the superintendent
says: "Most assuredly, wo will teach
your children by tho oral method." To
the latter he says: "No, wo must teach
your child by the oral method. The law
The repeal of tho law would not pre
vent the use of tho oral method to the
fullest extent desired by tho parents
and the authorities of the school. It
would simply allow parents to chooso
the method, guided by the advice and
experienco of the superintendent. Under
the present law, parents who do not
wdnt the ornl method havo no alterna
tive. Tho law should be repealed. Could any
thing bo plainer?
Mr. Babcock, president Nebraska Par
ent's Association to Promote the Oral
Education of the Deaf, says that 100
parents aro members of his association.
Presumably this represents tho full
strength of the oral lists. How about
tho other 150 or more parents? Do thoy
wont tho combined system? Some of
them havo written me that they were
asked to Join Mr, Babcock's association,
but refused. OLAF HANSON.

SOUTH OMAIEAr Neb., Feb. 2. To the
Editor of Tho Bee: There Is considerable
discussion about permitting the develop
ment of lnterurban lines In Nebraska,
Why should the state have on Us
statutes laws prohibiting public utility
entcrplrses by restriction such as would
ordinarily be placed on underslrablo busi
Wo realize that watered stock Is the
stumbling block, But why not tuke pre
cautionary measures against the evil,
rather than the enterprise. What busi
ness would stand tho test, If because of
ubuso the entire project must bo sup
pressed? Place the lnterurban proposition along
side ot banking, merchandising, railroad
In, etc,, and see what justice thero could
possibly be in hedging tho Investment In
lnterurban. Bar watering stock, but don't
bar a deserving enterprise by limiting
Its earnings to the lowest Interest pos-
slble. Those who have watched such
projects, also know that there Is danger,
which Is nothing short of legal theft
that Is, whon the company Is In fair
sight of success, to resort to the courts,
have a receiver appointed, re-organlzo
and "freeze out" the small Investors.
This precaution with the one concerning1
watering stock should not only bo fore
seen and forewarned, but forestalled.
Now why should a "fair" leverage be
allowed capital to lnterurban projectors?
First The Idea of increasing labor
chances Is a vital one. Families, no
doubt, would be brought to tho state,
thereby Increasing population, production
Second Values ot farm land In the
vicinity of the line would be Inoreased.
Third Traveling facilities and transpor
tation of small freight shipments would
be wonderfully Increased.
Fourth Objects for more taxes and
aiding In the support of our Institutions
naturally could not be underestimated.
Let us hope Nebraska will not act
rashly and retard Its growth as a real
progressive state by being over Indulged
to some Interests and intolerable to
others, but be farseetng enough to elimi
nate possible and probable evils and wel
come legitimate undertakings.

HANKERIN' FEE SPRING.
'Taint much use to try to sing
When you're hankerln' fer spring,
'Cept you gits right In the sun
Then Jest let your fancy run,
Jest like somethln' growln" wild,
Jest like you's a little child.
Git out where there's room cnuff
Ef you're goln' to write the stuff;
Pretty soon you'll hear the tune,
Sweeter'n little brooks In June;
You can hear the honey bees
Drontn' In the apple trees.
Hear the flickers when they whirr,
Till the air Is all a'burr,
An' you'll almost think It's snow
When you see the blossoms blow.
Lots o' things goes whlzzln' by
Qulcker'n you can wink your eye.
When you're drlftln' on a rhyme
Out here where the roses climb,
I can hear the drowsy tune
Jest like 'twas a summer noon;
Hear the cuckoos down the lane
Callln' up the lazy rain,
See the glimmer In the corn,
Hear the locust shrill his horn,
Hear the cowbells In the dusk,
Smell the pepper-brush an' muikj
I can hear the whlpper-lork
Whlstlln" up there In the dark:
Hear the stars with footfalls light.
Tinkle, tinkle down the night,
Jest like I's a Uttle child;
Till enchanted an' beguiled,
Pipers come a-plpln' low
Love's old song of long ago.
" the Jollv lilt an' fun
Settln' out here In the sun,
'jangled with a bluebell's wing.
When you're hankerln' fer spring.
