Red Cross Again.
Tlio IIco Is In receipt of n totter
I from Mabol T. 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.

WASHINGTON. 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

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

OMAHA. April 19. To the Editor of Tho
Bee: Slnco the memorable day of the
greatest disaster that ever struck our
city there Is hardly u day passes that
you do not hear of some act of heroism,
either collectively or singular. I do not
wish to detract anything from the
brave deeds and acts that were per
formed during this trying time. Ilui I
would say this, that men that, were act-'
uaiiy on the Held first and owing to their
trained condition saved manv rwr,n.
who would not have been here today, and
wno mindly cut their way through the
debris, removing hleh voltace wii
succor the unfortunates, not knowing
wna; instant they would meet their
neatn trying to save others, and that
body of men was our brave fire, depart
ment, who were hanHIc&nned fmm h
very beginning, but with unwavering en-1
ergy, with axes and jsaws. manv i muni
owes his life to them today. It was Im
possible ror them to work In unity, but
In that dark and awful night each man
proved himself a thorough American, and
never for any favors whatever, but aim-'
ply did his duty as a good fireman should
do. Chicago. Kansas Pity. Denver an
other cities do everything they can for
their nre laddies, but. alasl Omaha neg
lect its most Important arm of the eitv
and never give their firemen any
consideration. but tries to crush
their spirit If anything goes wrong, buti
never a word of praise. Cltlian. nr
Omaha, wake up and look to your fire'
department, who In the call of duty know i
not when they may leave loved ones tu
mourn their loss, and when nm.nl.inn-
heroes forget not your firemen who were '

UNF00LABLE FATHER.
Strickland Glllilan In Lcslel's.
I used to do some little tricks my fothcr
disapproved:
Would Mav with tools he'd put In place
and said should not he moved;
Go fishing when he'd pointed out some
weeds among the corn
Do nil the bad things boys have dono
slnco first a boy was born.
I never stopced to figure that ne'd had a
boyhood, too
I used to think I'd fool my dad, but now
1 know he knew!
Ho knew that, when his back was turned,
I'd work a little less
Thnn when he stayed about me with his
rigid watchfulness;
Ho knew his orders roused In mo a little
streak of mule
Was he not once ns young as I, nnd qulto
as big a fool?
Ami so. although he held his peace .this
thing I say li truo;
I used to think I fooled my dad, but now
I know he knew.
Now I've some chicks who don't agree
with all their father's laws
This dlsobeylng's not the Joke I once be
lieved It was!
Wo see their rattlc-brnlned mistakes
through eyes of riper years
Tho wisdom-crop within thoso eyes Is
watered oft with tears.
Some day, when puzzling o'er their own,
they'lt sigh nnd 'twill be troc
"We used to think we fooled our dad,
but now wo know he knew."
