The Filiblno's Traditions. Kipling wrote ns part of an intro ductory to a chapter In ono of his volumes this verso: Now it Is not good for tho Christian's Health to hustle tho Aryan brown; For tho Christian riles and the Aryan . smiles and ho wearcth tho Christian down: , And the end of the fight In a tombstone white, with tho name of the late de ceased! And. the epitaph drear, "A fool lies here who tried to hust 0 the east" Figuratively, somo such unhannv ending might ensue If our friends, tho democrats, should nttomnt to precipitate progross In tho nrt of solf-govornmont in the PhillnDlnes Tho United States whllo under re publican rulo, was forced into thoso islands and having accented tho fate of destiny, did tho very best it could for tho moral, social, intellectual and s commercial welfare of tho noo plo. with tho result that conditions aro bo much bottor than at tho time 01 .OUr OCCUIiatton nft tn nffor nn nn,. siblo basis of comparison, The gov ernment has not been In a hurry to completo what In a very solnmn mood It conceived to be 'its duty to ward the Filipinos, realizing that amy to do ono of destiny. And If tho democrats aro wise thoy will pursue tho same course, romember lpg, as polntod out by a writer In the Atlantic Monthly, "the fact that, tho dominant dements of tho Filinlno's character havo been formed by the traditions of millenniums of barbar ism, In which political experience had no place." To say that fifteen years Is sufficient time in which to teach Buch a people the art of relf government Is to travestlze a grave responsibility. Tho wonder is that tho Filipinos have responded so well to our beneficent efforts. Never Again. One ot the good things done by the late Nebraska legislature was to make it unlawful for a murderer to be tho beneficiary of an insurance policy on the life ot his victim. In other words, hereafter if a nerson murders another in Nebraska to get the life insurance, he won't get it, and we will nevor again have an other example of a convict pardoned out ot the penitentiary collecting money from an insurance company in consequence of tho murder. If there are othor Btates where this scandal has happened, or could hap pen, we commend NebraBka'a new law to them. Prospect are that several law enacted by the Nebraska legislature will be sent to referendum. This referendum business works both ways. It can stop a good law put over dy reiormers lust as easily as it can stop a bad law smuggled through pernicious lobbyists. by Looking BackWatd This Dm? in Omaha J i : v ( COMPILED FROM PEE.

May 5.-To the Editor ot The Beei Don't you know that the municipal credit Is bound up with the private credit of a city's people? And that In Omaha the ordinary basis for real cstato loans is one-third of a close hard valuation, while the bants of ordinary real estate loans In cities of Omaha's class Is, and should be. two-thirds of the value of the property? I am not speaking of building and loan associations on a monthly basis, and which are limited In amount, but of loans such as are adequate and ore needed to build up and make modem clUes-loans that como from the accumulated werslth that Is to be found In tho money boxoi of the world, and to which other cities of Omaha's class have access on terms that Omaha has not In Kansas City, Minne apolis, Denver, Los Angeles, etc., the market is well supplied with money at two-thirds of a liberal valuation of the property. Now If you want to know how to build up and strengthen Omaha's credit you will need to go back a few years and dig up what It was that did the damage In the first pace, and In so doing you will have to unearth things which will be n surprise to many who ordinarily call themselves well Informed, for what hur Omaha might almost m well as far afc the Information of tho general public Is concerned have been done in tho coiner behind tho back door. You all saw the effects of what has been done, hut did you what did It? You nsk the average business man of tho city, "What hurt Omaha after the close of tho real estate boom of 15S3, '87 and 'S8?" and In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred ho will reply, "The real estate boom." But If those with good memories who have kept In touch with affairs will stop and think, they will re call that In those boom days Omaha's business as compared with that of Kansas City, .ia shown by tho clearing house reports, was only about 20 per cent behind the latter, while the real estate boom In Omaha compared as that of an Infant to a robust young man to that of Kanas City. In Kansas City lots wore platted and sold every foot of tho way for ten miles from the business center, Sixty-foot front lots sold In Kansas City In the center of blocks by the dozen at from JK0.000 to 1175,000 each, while corners rold Just as freely at 200,000 to 1225,000 each, while In the height of Omaha's boom tho southeast corner ot Sixteenth and Farnam, CflxlK feet, was. bought by "Mr. Thomas, whose family still owns It for 10,000, and J, H. Millard sold to the New York Llfo Insurance company tho two lots, 1S2X1S2 feet at the northeast corner ot Seventeenth and Farnam streets tor $126,000, or a basis of 150,000 for the Inside lot and CO per cent added for the corner. And then tho final top-notch sale was the northwest corner of Sixteenth and Farnam, 66x132 feet, to Dr. S. D, Mercer for 192,000. These were the solo three top notch sales of Omaha's real estate boom. Now these being facts that aro sus ceptible of proof, why was It that Omaha suffered so much more than Kansas City from tho effect of their concurrent booms? Kansas City at the close of Its boom went to work and promptly closed out the wreckage, and It wns substan .tlally cleared away In eighteen months, With a decllno In real estato values there not to exceed 25 per cent; for the people of Kansas City were at all times able' to borrow money to protect the value 'ot' their property on the basis of the newly adjusted scale. In other words, the peo ple of Kansas City protected'Hhelr crodlt and were at once able to go ahead and do business, while Omaha than then did only 20 per cent less business, and with" a far less -boom than Kansas City which Is at least as well located to du business, and t belloVe better went through twenty years of worse than hell. You all know that real estato was freely offered with no buyers to tako It at less than 20 Cents on the dollar of former value. I recall walking up Sixteenth street from Nicholas to Farnam In the fall ot 1892. and three-fourths of tho stores were va cant, for tho people here had no money to spend in them. Do you wonder that your savings banks that did a conserva tive real estate loan business, were wrecked and unablo to pay 50 per cent? I am not speaking of concerns that dealt In second mortgage loans, but of con cerns that In older cities would have gono on In safety. Now, why was this? What was done that made this state of affairs? A set of men tn important responsible .posi tions who were elected as democrats or republicans, It matters not, but who werq In fact populists said: "We will not al low the money sharks to rob the people of their property," and to effect that they made a set of rules to govern the courts In the forcclosuro of mortgages, In which rules, If there wero no particu lar litigation, and no appeal to the su preme court. It took from five to seven years to get title under foreclosure of mortgage, and It taken to the supreme court with litigation double that time was Editorial Viewpoint Philadelphia Ledger: If a man la afraid to say It himself, he nearly always asks a newspaper to do It for him, Washington Post; The colored office holder about to be pried oft tho govern ment Job he hat held in South Carolina since the fall ot Fort Sumter is begin ning to look upon tho civil war aa a failure. Chicago News: Ex-Senator Bourne of Oregon wants $3,000,000,000 expended on good roads. Here (a a chance for Messrs.

Of course, It sounds like a fairy story, but If thero wero not an occasional exception the rule would never be proven. In this caso the estato was In the hands of the coutt Baltimore, American: During 1913 this country Imported gems worth $41,562,720, and these were sold for many millions more than the customs valuation. Thus our people are spending over a million dollars a week for precious stones. All the extra money Is not going into auto mobiles. St. Louis Republic: Our exports havo averaged $7,000,000 a day for the first nine months of the current fiscal year, and manufactured goods comprised 00 per cent ot such exports. Secretary or Com merce Redtleld thinks that this shows that our manufacturers are competing pretty successfully with manufacturer abroad. Everybody Is entitled to a guess. What's yours? Dolns Quite Well. IndinnapiUs News. Notwithstanding all Its other troubles the steel trust continue to declare its usual quarterly dividends and stow away , snug sum for a rainy day CreditAn Answer taken, during which time no receiver could be appointed to take care ot In come and protect the property. The par ties who borrowed the money received the Income, made no payment ot taxes, for until the scavenger law was passed payment of taxes could not be enforced, and as a rule no repairs wero mado. While the lender of the money received no interest he had to provide money for taxes or to pay them with the added pen alties when he got title. Of course, no one could, or would, lend a dollar here under such conditions, credit was completely destroyed. Tho people of Omaha could not obtain money to pro tect the value of their property, and be cause ot that, It depreciated to less than 20 per cent of its vnluc. The money lenders were hurt, but the people of Omaha were ground under the mill stones. This destroying of a credit of a people caused those who only owned 20 per cent ot the value of their homes to lose them. This destruction of credit caused the foreclosure of thousands of pieces of property and passing ot title to creditors, and those new owners, under tho conditions then created, failed to re ceive (largely because of those condi tions) adequate Incomes from the property taken over, and all over tho land thoso new owners were soro spots that hurt Omaha's credit Since that time there has been an Improvement In the time and manner of forclosures, but still they aro not as they should be. Elsewhere when complaint is filed, de fendant must answer In ten days or show every substantial cause why he should ba granted as much more time, while here that thing Is lax and ninety days usually expires beforo Issue Is made up and case Is on the docket tor trial. Up to within a year past usually eighteen months elapsed before a caso was heard In court and judgment determined. Than timo Is given for motion for now trial, time for appeal, which uses up, say seventy days. The- execution Issued. A stdto law gives, without rhymo or rea son, nine months stay of execution, and at tho end of Btay, advertising takes thirty days at least then an Indefinite tlmo may elapse for tho court to decide to confirm sale, or order a new adver tisement and sale. To make the mass ot your people pros perous, you must Improve the credit of that mass, and sp make It possible tor them to get adequate amounts of money on liberal terms at lowest rates of in terest To do that, you must make It certain that the lender will receive hla monoy and Interest promptly when due. When that is done there will always be an ample supply of money offering to pro tect the borrower, and they can go ahead with confidence to help themselves, and what each does for himself helps boost the whole. In other cities Of Omaha's class tho trust is used, and its use helps the credit of the people no one has to use it unless he sees fit, but your people should have that resource at their com mand.. New, the municipal credit of a city cannot be above that ot tho general level of the moss ot its people. Omaha has many able, wealthy citizens ot high credit and they help to raise the credit of the general mass. But you must bo tlx It that thore be no blur or ctoud UDon the credit ot the general mass of a people If you expect them to bo prosperous with good crodlt . Do you suppose that Los Angeles would have grown in eighteen "years from aa Inert town of 70,000 to the livest city of the land, with 400,000 people, a city of magnificent buildings, a city able to borrw $2,0000,000 to build a water system In a dry land. If care had not been taken to protect the people who loanod tho money to mako the city? No such tight S3 per cent loah market with uncertainty as to when or how tho lender of that money, would bo paid, would have pro duced the money to have made that city, nor will it do it elsewhere. Los Angeles needed the help of the trust deed, and used It freely; so does Denver, Kansas City, etc If you Intend to build a live city here, Its people must wako up and tear down the barriers that the populists ot the dead past have built about us which keeps prosperity away. No man who builds bar riers between himself and his creditors can expect to have good crodlt No man, or set ot men, or city, have a right to ex peat that You mUBt make and enforce your laws so as to clean the skirts of all If yoU would have gilt-edged credit as a people. If the leading men ot Omaha will bear a hand, and take hold of this matter, you will not after three years havo occasion to writs such ah editorial. There are other things that have somo bearing upon the municipal credit, of a city. But If this one great underlying thing Is made right the others will bo trivial by comparison.
