Doardman, tho actlvo head of tho National lied Cross so ciety, which will be found on this page, explaining at considerable length why that worthy organization did not take a hand In the relict work in Omaha, but devoted Its energies to tho flood districts of Ohio and Indiana. In this connection, it should bo understood, as beforo iterated, that Omaha has no complaint to make be causo the Ited Cross people decided its assistance was not needed here, becauso events havo Justified that decision. Tho invitation to criticism of tho Red Cross has come, not from anything its officers have done, or could control, but from the over zealous exploitation of the Red Cross work in magazines and other perlodl cals boasting about its quick rcsponso to the call from Omaha as an example of how that socioty goes to tho rescuo of every strickon community. Had tho Ilod Cross publicity agents con finod themselves to tho strict facts, no one hereabouts would havo had any comment to pass. Printing i the Facts. Senator Works of California urges legislation to prevent newspapers from publishing facts of crlmo or disaster, which ho considers demoral izing in effect. Only one daily paper that wo know of shares his views. It oven excluded tho facts of tho Omaha tornado nnd Ohio floods from its columns. This may comport with Certain ethics In which It nnd Sena tor Works hellove, but It Is not con sistent with the function of a news paper, which la nothing if not to print tho nows. So long as tho ultlmato censorship of tho press rests with tho public In tho bestowal of Its favor, it soems safo to leave to tho discriminating decency nnd intelligence of the pub lisher tho determination ot what to print. But as to tho moral aspect of tho question, is tho abhorrenco of ovil lessened by giving publicity to tho facts of everyday lifo? Hero is a most timely and Interesting comment by the Chrlstan Endeavor World un der tho significant caption, "God In tho Newspaper:" The dally press Is an full of spiritual teaching of a kind as the Bible. It docs not preach sermons, It Is true, or tag on morals to' Its news, but the lessons nro so plain that he that runs may read. Shining behind tho tragic facta ot multitudes of front pa go articles ono may rend such terrible texts n. "Whatsoever a man sow- eth. that shall he also reap;" "lie that sowoth to the flesh shall ot the flesh reap corruption," and "Tho wages of sin 1b j death." Qod Is speaking loudly In every news paper in the country. The bush Is aflame, yet men pass by unscolng. Wo cannot help feeling that this expresses tho truth. "Tho wages ot sin 1b death," and it is possible to impress tho horror and repugnanco of tho wages in a cold-typed recita tion. Humanity is emotional, no matter what any school of othlcs may teach, and Uiobo emotions aro sus- coptiblo to good as well as evil Influ ences and back ot all Is tho light of reason aroused by tho volco of Ood, whothor uttered through press or pulpit. The Bryan-Clark Love Feast. Mr. Bryan soems to havo dono about all tho recanting in tho burial of tho hatchet between himself and Mr. Clark, Judging from their public statomonts. It Is beyond the power of Colonsl Bryan or anyone ctso to correct the Injustice that was done to me. nt Baltimore. But now that Colonel Bryan In his publla statement has done what he could to re move the Injurious Impressions that were created by his Baltimore speeches, I feel that we can all the bettor co-operate fpr the good of the administration. If Mr. Bryan can soo any exculpa tion in that statement by Mr. Clnrk ho is lynx-eyed, It loaves no room for doubt that Clark still blames Bryan for his defeat at Baltlmoro and will contlnuo to ranklo under It, no matter what show may be made of personal friendship for party pur poses. Mrs. Clark's words still ring in tho public ear: I have often warned my husband to look out tor that man Bryan. Mr. Bryan's statement given out from tho reconciliation dinner is much more apologetic, but it la nl ways easier for tho winner than tho loBer in any contest to do tho apol oglzlng. It is my earnest wish that there may be cordial co-operation between the State de partment and the speaker In carrying out the policies of the administration. This concluding sentence of Mr. Bryan's statement suggests the sol fish motive impelling the suit for peaco with the spoaker, which, no doubt, is instituted by direction of tho president, himself, rather than by the voluntary abnegation ot his sec retary of state.

April 17 -To the Kdltor of The Bee: My attention has been called to an nrtlelo published In The Omaha Uee In regard to the Red Crors and the Omaha cyclone. Directly upon the news of this cyclone reaching the Red Cross, Mr. Krnest P. Hlcknell. the national di rector, telegraphed to the governor of the state asking If Red Cross assistance was needed. The governor replied: Denth list In state near J00. Number Injured unknown at present. Property loss very large. State hnndllng Injured and are caring for needy. No assistance 1. S t ' .t 4 ... t. necessary irom ouisiao or state, lour offer of assistance appreciated by me. However, from the newspaper reports the disaster seemed so serious that Mr. Blcknell decided to proceed to Omaha. In thn meantime wo have Instructed our Red Cross representatives, Mr. Eugene T. Lies of Chicago, and Mr. C. M. Hub bard of St. Louis, to' proceed to Omaha to offer Red Cross assistance If neces sary. Mr. Lies reached there March 25 and, after consultation with those In terested telegraphed to Mr. Blcknell os follows: Mayor Duhlmnn and T. J. Mnhoney, cholrmen citizens' commlttfe, say no funds from outsldo the state seem neces sary now. Emergency plans devised by Major Hartman, local army officer, well In hnnd. About 120 dead In Omaha. Your presence unnecessary. Mr. Blcknell, having already started, had reached Chicago, but turned back to go to Ohio. I think, In Justice to tho American Red Cross theso facts should bo known. Its assistance was offered, but It was Informed no outside aid was required. It should hardly, then, bo blamed for taking no further action. Since then Information has reached this office that asslstanco Is desired at Omaha, and we nro hoping that we may of some help In this matter. Our dif ficulty Is that the contributions sent In to the Red Cross always come In lib erally If wo aro able to Issue our ap peals whllo the papers arc full of tho news of a disaster, but if Issued some time after, there Is very llttlo responso and tho papers, generally speaking, will not even print tho anneal. Thn fmm.n. disaster caused by the floods In Ohio, west Virginia, Kentucky. Indiana nnd Illinois, nnd threatening tho lower Miss issippi, has filled tho press and brought In very generous contributions for tho flood sufferers. Of course, though theso contributions havo been generous, the territory to bo covered nnd the number of people that havo suffered nmount to very many thousands, so that as far as tho Individual Is concerned, ihnrn nat. only be a little used for each. in regnrd to tho nurses, the Ited Cross stood ready to provide a number from outside of Omaha If required to care for those Injured by the cyclone, but no request of It for extra nurses was made. I think Miss Lcupp's artlclo gave hnrdly a fair impression ot this office. We have been at work hero In a small room, which is our headquarters, somo times with nine or ten people, nnd at al ltlmes with at least seven, ever since the pressure for this latts relief work began. Much of our force have worked night after night until midnight. This, of course. Is only our office force. In tho flooded district wo havo had some thirty agents under Mr. Blcknell, who himself has been at work, with his as sistants from early morning until mid night. Wo have also had about 200 nurses In' tho ' flooded area. It was not from lack of any Interest in Omaha that the Red Cross was no't equally active there, but only because we were In formed such outside aid was not r... quired. I would bo much obliged If In Justice to tho Red Cross you would klndlv nrlnf this letter. MABEL T. noAnnw aim Chalrmaji of tho National Ttellef Board. Onr Primitive Street denning-. OMAHA, April 20. To the Editor of The Bee: It seems to me our city wastes time and money In Its primitive method of street cleaning. I stood and watched a gang of men working on Fortieth street north of Davenport nnd was im pressed with tho need of a more bust-ness-llko system. The men scraped up the dirt-some of It In piles and Bhoveled It leisurely Into a wagon that came along In due time and that was all there was to It. They leave about as much as they take by this method. But oven at that If the city commissioner In charge of this department would, or hnd the facilities for following up this little touch of cleaning with a thorough flush ing It wou.d do some good. As things are the so-called cleaning can hardly be detected In a day or two. I am con vinced that this matter of street cleaning Is ono of great Importance to come be fore the charter-makers. Wo waste time nnd money nnd do not have clean streets in our residence district to enjoy after all under present conditions. There are streets In. our resident sections that are hardly touched with a cleaning In the course of a year. ASA M'PHERSON. Work of thf Cltr Flremnn. OMAHA. April 19.
