The Trntli About Tornadoes,
OMAHA. May 1. To the Bdltor of The
Bee: It Is not always certain that the
reported night tornadoes were true tor
nadoes and not severe storms. However,
will gladly strike out the word "never"
and chang It to "very rarely." The prin
ciple Is not at affected by the change.
I atlll ae no reason to modify what I
said about electricity In a tornado. There
is lightning, ot coursr to some extent but-
this Is very secondary and comparatively
evanescent In Its work. But to claim that
th wind cannot produce certain effects-
and that therefore electricity must do
it Is not a very convincing argument
If, as Blgelow says In his long- and able
mathematical analysis of the constitution
of a tornado, the wind may reach a
theoretical velocity of 800 miles an hour

OMAHA, May I. To the Editor of The
Beet I see 'that our democratic organ as

teristic outburst for not taking orders
from the Water board lobbyist A few
change,, reversing the moUon of the
screed, are all that Is needed to make It
sound right So modified,, this Is tho way
Do tha honorable water commissioners
of Omaha look on the city water plant as
nothing more than their personal orop-
erty to be used In any and every way
they please,- provided they can vent their
petty spite against the mayor and city
council? Are they willing to make It un
popular, unprofitable and inefficient
merely because they don't like The Heat
'Certainly It looks that way when they
refuse to give the people the promised
lower water rates Just because Tho Bee
calls upon them to do so. Their excuse la
that the demand-for lower water rates Is
'unreasonable.' Who says so? Their $6,000
a year lobbyist
"The only object In buying the water
plant and taking It over by the city was
to get nway from- the- excessive and ex
orbitant rates charged by the old water
company. But notwithstanding!- that the
Water board has not only not-reduced Iho
rates, but ha, actually Increased them
One would think from the attitude or
the water commissioners that the water
plant wa their own private property. In
stead it la the property of tho people of
Omaha, who have- merely vested them
temporarily with tho management of pub
lic property paid for with $7,000,000 of the
people's money, yet the water commis
sioners, taklns their orders obediently
from their political engineer, refuse to let
the people have any benefit or returns
whatever from their Investment In the
form of lower- taxes or cheaper water.
"It Is to the ehame of the' water com
missioners. There ought to be some one
among them somo one like Mr. Heafey,
who has otherwise n good reputation-
some on like Mr. Bucholz, who ranks
welt as" a banker big enough and broad
enough to stand up in meeting and voice
ths popular' demand by forcing the board
to redfcem its broken promises."
I would send this to the democratic
sheet but I know It wouldn't' bo printed.
Ther Same Old Cry.
To the Editor of The Bees An editorial
appears tn Monday's World-Herald, en
titled "A Strange Parentage," setting
forth some arguments but no reasons why
the number of saloons should not be re
duced to one to 1,000' population in the
city of Omaha. As is the character ot
that periodical, so aro tho arguments
Bpeclouei false and hypocritical.
The writer holds no brief for the de
fense Ot Mr, Dennlson. But It It be true
that Mr. Dennlson Is In favor ot saloon
reduction, that Is no reason why the
W.-1I. should oppose. For there
are many things held In common by both.
With perhaps this difference, some things
which are true ot the W.-H. have
never been charged against Mr. Dennl
son. He has never been accused of re
pudlatlng a Just debt, nor Is it said of
)ilm that he ever went back on a friend.
It It were possible for .the W.-H.
to obtain advantage for itself or any of
Its friends through association with Mr
Dennlson, Is It to be thought of that th
w.-H. would repudiate such an al
llnnce? Not at all. Then why the solici
tude of the W.-H.? Is It because
a brief Is held by It for the- protection
and benefit of the brewers of Omaha?
For any person with a modicum of com
mon sense will see that the proposed re
duction ot the number ot saloons tn
Omaha will render- useless- thousands' of
Sollara' worth ot saloon fixtures, which
r not owned by. the retait dealers but
by the brewers. As for the retail liquor
dealers who would bf affected by the re
auction proposition, they would not lore
one dollar by depreciated values; for all
fixtures and equipments-and the licenses
under which they operate are owned by
the brewers, and are leased by them to
the, retail dealers, and never cease to bo
The hypocrisy of the W-II. t th more
evident when a glance Is taken over the
political history of Douglas county and
Omaha for the last three or tour years,
During the gubernatorial and legisla
tive campaign ot 1910, when The Omaha,
Be and other agencies In Omaha were
calling attention to th immense amount
ot Illegal registration in the Third ward,
and also to the wtdspread colonization
In this and other wards, the attitude of
the W-H. was one ot ridicule and denial
ot such facts. In the legislative investi
gation which followed, that paper pooh
hooed and belittled the Irrefutable evi
dence ot illegal registrations and vot
ing, and also connivance of the city
clerk's office tn such fraudulent opera
tions. The reason for th attitude of
that paper in the campaign of 1910 Is to
b discovered in th fact that Gilbert
M. Hitchcock, proprietor of the W-H.,
was candidal, for the office ot United
States senator1 from the state ot Ne
braska What manner of ethics is held
by this arch hypocrite, ot Journalism,
that It seek- to defeat a moat salutary
and. reasonable measure, by Calling at
tention to the presumed tact that one
of It dearest old-time friends Is tn favor
of the proposition? By the same sort
of logic, Gilbert M. Hitchcock Is In
famously filling a high office In the
United States government, because Mr.
Dennlson and the Third ward favored
him with a majority tn 1S10.
On the other hand, Ir. Edttor, sup-1
pes the W-H. should assert that Tom !
pennlson wa against tho saloon reduc
tion preposition, would that fact be ot

lngt KISSING GAMES.
Edgar A, Guest In Detroit Free Press.
I watched them playing kissing games
And chuckled' to myself
As I recalled tho days before
Time put me on, the -shelf.
I watched that roguish lad ot mine
With all Ihe gusto that I showed
when l was wont i u.
But I am on the sidelines, now,
And he Is In the game.
And he Is hugging pretty girls
With eyes and cheeks aflame,
And there's no special one to pout
Or raise a fuss when he
Distributes his affections thus, ,
The way there Is with me.
What though ho kiss ft dozen maids
And give them all a squeeze,
Nobody sternly say to him'.
"What means this conduct Please?"
Nobody stamps a pretty foot
At him or starts to cry,
But this will como,. when these glad
Of youth have wandered by.
"Just like his dad," I hear her. ray,
And note her gentle smile;
And I retort, "This freedom will
But lost a littlo while.
Perhap on of these lassies sweet
Will some day rule, his life,
And yet. I hop, that like his dad
He'll choose, as good a wife."
