Hut It Is bravely bending to the work, and It has the sympathy and help of the state In Its splendid efforts. Here's success to you, Omaha. Columbus Telegram: Several Nebraska preachers have boldly announced that God sent tho Easter cyclone as a warn ing to tho wicked city of Omaha, but they do not tell Us why God sent the same cyclone to destroy tho peaceful vil lage of Yutiin. How wicked It must be for any preacher to presume to say that tho great Ood bids tho elements destroy human liven. They have no authority to make such statements. Their bold bias phemy is not harmful to persons of ma ture minds, but It la harmful to children. It Is not true, children. Ood did not send the Easter cyclone to deal death to the people of Qmaha. That cyclone was tho product of the laws of nature, and there Is no ovldenco to prove, that In these lat ter dayu thoso laws are ever set aside, A child knows that tho fire will destroy the body, and yet without the old of fire It would be difficult for humanity to live Upon the globe. All men know that the cyclone will destroy human life, and yet It may be that science may some day be able to prove that cyclones are absolutely necessary evils. We know so llttlo about human affairs. Let us not be swift to proclaim our ability to understand the mind of the great Qod. Blair Tribune: Business Is resuming Us normal condition In Omaha. Tho papers are again printing marriage licenses. For a few days after tho terrible storm thoro was little thought of marrying o giving In marriage. Aurora Sun: Two thousand willing workers turned out In Omaha last Sun day and labored tirelessly In clearing the wreckage and debris from tho cyclone stricken section of the city, so that those who havo lost their homes can begin the work of rebuilding under better condl tlons. In many' places the trees wera trimmed and everything posslblo done to restore the appearance of order. This occurred on the Sabbath day, and we will venture that there wero some mighty good Christiana In the work. David City Banner: It makes us tired to see so many half-baked preachers over the country claiming that the recent storm was a blessing to Omaha. If they call the wiping out ot homes, the killing of Innocent babies and the wrecking of families a blessing, all we have to Bay is It's too blamed bad they haven't some of tho blessings showered lUpon. them. WeGsielMSox Wanti Credit for All. OMAHA, April H.-To the Editor of The Bee: I want to thank you for your words of commendation of my services In tho relief work In the Auditorium last week. I did work hard and I appreclato your kindly mention, but I could not havo ac complished such results had It not been for tho untiring patience of my efficient helpers, and I wish more credit might have been given them. MATTIK I. CRAIO. Tlmt Specially Kurorert Church. OMAHA, April U.-To the Editor of Tho Bee: We must certainly congratulate tho pastor of the elegant Kountzo Memorial ohurch on tho mental condition which en abled him to hold a special thanksgiving service on Sunday because "his church encapad Injury, and none of his flock wero hurt, and few suffered from prop erty loss." How comforting It must bo as cne looks at the wrecked homes and nu merous churches destroyed, to feel that. While Ood had It In for those people, He spared us, and how grateful we Omaha people should be that "It was tho tornado hlch struck Omaha and hot the floods hlch devastated Ohio," and still mora grateful "that tho city was not swept by fire after tho tornado." Poor tornado victims! Poor Ohio suf ferers! Wo pity you, and In a thankful spirit we tell you: Do not complain, for did not Ood do It? Was not Qod In the tornado and In the flood?

Pittsburgh Dispatch; With tho adopt ing by the Connecticut legislature ot tho; resolution ratifying the constitutional amendment for the election of United States senators by popular vote, a battlo that has been fought oft and on tor moro than sixty years was ended. New York Tribune'. As a' matter of fact, popular election of senators could no longer bo staved off. The country, wanted It, because it Is In harmony with the spirit of tho times. It Is one of those things which tho public rightly believes will be useful in the establishment of a more popular form of government. Springfield Republican: For good or III United States senators are to bo elected by direct vote of the people. Connecti cut's ratification ot the amendment to the federal constitution brings the requisite thtrty-slx states three-quarters of all in the union In lino for the new method, and the November elections of 1914 will ylejd our first batch of popu larly-elected senators. The political world 'do move," as the Rev. Jasper of Rich mond, Va., used to say and the process Is a mighty Interesting one. Cleveland Plain Dealer: AUde from the Importance ot tho reform which tho amendment establishes, the chief signifi cance in its quick ratification lies tn the demonstration that the constitution is easily and speedily amendable whenever the people care to exercise that power. It puts to rout those who have been con tending all these years that the constltu tlon Is a drag ou legitimate progress be cause, as they have argued, it was fixed unalterably a century and a quarter ago.

Indianapolis Newa: The queer part about the new tariff bill's free list Is that there are lots of things to eat. to wear and to use In It that the ordinary t ultimate consumer can understand. I New York Tribune: In Its essential features the new Wilson tariff measure at least hews to the line of good faith. It reflects the views ot tho democrats and probably of many who are not demo crats. Whether It will work out smoothly or not remains to be seen. But It la a fair translation Into legislation ot the j promises on which the voters put the democratic party back Into power. j Philadelphia North American; Po.liupi half of the people may differ from Mr !
