Tackling the Tax Problem. By authority ot tho late legisla ture, Governor Morehead has named a commission to study the subject of taxation in Nebraska with a vlow to recommending improvements in the systom. The commission has a big task ahead of It to tncklo. Al most boforo It gets stnrted tho com mission will be convinced, It It Is open to conviction, that the existing system of raising tho stato's rovo nuos is the worst that could possibly bo dovaed, and that it violates every rulo of Justice and equality.' It will discover at once, If not sooner, that there is nothing a man hates to pay so much as taxes, and that there are more different theories and schemes afloat to unload tho taxes on tho other follow thon one con shake a stick at. But go back to the main proposi tion, tho cornerstone ot taxation in Nebraska rests upon tho constitu tional requirement that the needful rovenuo be provided "by levying a tax by valuation so that every per son and corporation shall pay a tax In proportion to tho value of his, her or its property and franchises." So long as this provision remains in tho constitution a single tax on land values, the exemption of personal property or the substitution of a state Income tax Ib barred Just as much as would bo a tariff on im ports or a duty on exports. Heretofore tho main controversy In this stato has rovolvod about tho tax burdens on tho railroads and transportation corporations as com pared with the farmor, manufac turer and producer, a disparity at ono tlmo most flagrant Tho worst abusos in this respect, 'however, wore mot by tho last revenue act rovlslon ton yoars ago. The temptation thon was to discard altogether and start something now, but it was con cluded that thore wero some things worth saving. It remains to bo soon whether tho lapse of ton yoars has so changod conditions as to war rant a different conclusion. A Sooial Service Equipment. Sociology has taken a doen and firm hold on tho American pooplo. It no 'longer interests thom meroly as a branch of study, but makes its most forcible appoal in active demonstration. Hero, for instance, at Kansas City Is being established a school for practical sociological work, where those engaged in teach ing tho science may obtain evory-dny Instruction In Us practical oporatlon. Such an Institution should find an amplo field for accomplishing need ful rosultB. For it is qulto an ac cepted fact that theories alone are no' moro potent in social service than in anything olso. Instruction in this groat realm of learning falja hortof. what sociology is meant! to .subsrvo If it falls to supply the necessary equipment for tho worker. But it to the theoretical instruction is added practical demonstration, then we como nearer tho point, though wo do not quite reach it. What is then required to complete tho oqulpmont of tho useful social service worker? Here is the answer ot one ot tho most successful and highly esteemed of workors in Amer ica, Charles Stelzlo, who has done so much in affiliating the church and labor: Bclentlflo training plus human love Is tho Ideal equipment for the social worker. Tho latter Is more Important than the former. Social service, liko many other laudable spheres ot occupation, often invites into its ranks those lacking this essential element of equipment, and perhaps that Is why social serv ice so often falls. It is easy to agreo with Mr. Steltlo that human love for one's fellows is tho final prerequis ite, without which the superficial allurements ot the work are apt to oporate on cortain individuals so as to thwart Its larger purposes. Honesty and Progresi. Ono would be slow to affirm that modern progress w,aa being mado at tho oxpenso of personal honesty. Men aro as quick aa aver to resent a reflection Won their word and etlll regard- the "short and Ugly" as a challongo not to be ignored. Vet is this consistent with the trend of invention and commerce? Why aro cash registers, time clocks, automatic accounting ma chines, Improved inspection and spy systems and bo many other monitor ial devices thought necessary? In tho daya of the old horse car the driver stopped, to lot , paas'engors on and oft and depended upon them to walk up and drop tholr fare In tho Uox arranged for .tho .purpose. But the pay-as-you-entor, system, which, ot course, serves, other purposes as won, places no such high premium upon personal honesty. Ot course, no one is ant to arena that dishonesty goes with progress. Individuate "may be as Inherently honestnow. as evpr, and present con ditions may be the result or the les sens the past has taught, but the complexity of life seems to make necessary mora systematic methods for keeping tab oh mem and their activities. It might be satd in this connection that from time immemor ial courts have exacted ot Jurors and witnesses a solemn promise (o "tetl tho truth, the whole truth and-noth ing but the truth," and for as long as inventors have been able to con trive them safes and vaults have had their combinations. Nevertheless it must strike one In his quieter moments that very little Is taken tor giantcd today, when It comes to tho raattor ot business and personal In tegrity, but, of course, the universal ity of our pollto systom of monitor ing leaves llttlo ground for offonse. Women to Vote in Illinois. Equal suffrage achlovos a notablo victory In tho passago by tho Illinois legislature with tho aseurnnco of tho governor's approval of tho bill en abling women to voto at federal and most of tho local olectlons. Gover nor Dunno himself halls It as "a triumph for clean politics In Illi nois." All good citizens will hopo It proves bo, for llllnolB politics can endure a llttlo moro cleanliness. To tho assertion that equal suf frage has proved disappointing of do sired results ' In some othor states, the stock answer Is that the women Lecomo apathetic and refrain from voting becauso tholr franchise Is not complete and does not permit thom to vote at all elections. If that wero correct it would bo an un worthy excuse. It Is not to their credit that they havo not voted when permitted to do so, and If they do not voto In Illinois because they can not vote for all the offices, they will strengthen the argument of their opponents. The Death Bate in Omaha. The census bulletin on mortality statistics for 1911, Just out, invites attention to our lengthening human llfo lino as proved by tho decreas ing death rate. For what is known as tho "registration nrea," In which vital statistics aro kopt, embracing now- a llttlo over 63 per cont ot tho population of the country, tho death rate for tho year was 14.2 per thou sand of tho population, being tho lowest ever recorded, and tho fig ures show a steady decline from 19.0 per thousand ot tho population twonty years aog, Incidentally, It is worth whilo noting that whllo tho avorago death rato Is as given, It is higher In cities, bolng 16,3 por thousand as compared with tho rural sections whore It Is 12.7 por thou sand of tho population. Bringing It directly homo to us hero in Omaha, our' doath rate for tho year is given as 14.3 por thousand of tho popula tion, somewhat botter than the aver ago, although apparently greater than our own doath rate for the j oars prior to 1910, presumably cal culated on the preceding census, Tho most encouraging feature of tho compilation Is the marked reduc tion In the infant doath rate in re cent years, which for infants under one yoar of age has decreased nearly one-fifth In the registration area in a period of less than twelve years. For Omaha tho numbor of deaths per thousand of infants under 6tb"year' of age for 19li waa. .101.3 as -compared with 151;9 tor the year, 1900, a decrease of 32 por cent. To got a moro accurato measurement tho statisticians figured tho ratio of infant deaths to overy ono thousand living births, which gives tor Omnhiv an infantllo doath rate per thousand of tho population of tho same age of 140," .which, we may obsorve, is appreciably lower than the corresponding figure for qulto a numbor ot cities that boast ot their progress In sanitation, and la fairly as good as tho showing made by most of tho cltlos ot Omaha's class. The Moro s. Tho renewed outbroaks of the Moros in the Phlllppino islands is likely to doceivo many in discussing the quostlon ot Filipino Indepen dence. As a matter of fact what the Moros do has very llttlo bearing on the fitness or unfitness of tho Fili pinos for Bolf-govornmont, and should not, therefore, be considered too seriously in this connection. They are a remnant of Malaylsm, ot piracy In its most virulent stagos, and in religion aro Mohammedans, a part of whose creed it is to annihi late Christians under cortain condi tions, and to thom all white men are Christians. In short, Moros aro still little more than a barbarous tribe, and In no sense typical ot the Fili pino people, with whoso future in dependence wo have to do. The ono point at which tho Moro quostlon doos vitally touch the mat ter of autonomy is Just here, that it only goes to show the extremity ot tho task we have to perform In tho islands. Dismissing the thought of admitting this uncivilized tribe to the advantages of an independent government, there is still this to be considered what olomcrit in tho Filipino population Is there to which government ot these people might be committed? Letting tho Moro represent the minimum and the Manilan the maximum ot progress in the Islands, and we may got at tho magnitude of the undertaking forced upon us some fifteen years ago. Disarmament Loses a Pillar. The "peace-at-any-prlce" cause loses a strong apostle in Congress man Kent of California.. He is atlil against "the stupidity of war." s&yB, but ")n facing facts and not theories, I have become a battleship Man." He finds it Impractical longer to hold to the tine-spun theory of disarmament in view ot the "mate of international complications Into wnicn wovjvo thrust purselves." The ever-present possibility of r ich a maze ot international compli cations is Just what has constrained the vast majority of people from go- Ing the whole length for Immediate disarmament. Mr. Kent calls atten tion to tho fact that, "First of all, as a cause of offense, we havo estab lished tho Monroo doctrine, which In tho language ot Secretary Olney holds that 'we aro supreme on tho American continent; our flat is law.' " But we established tho Mon roo doctrino ninety years ago, and although some of Its commentators have recently put it out of business, It still lias some standingSo that the change is not in conditions, but In Mr. Kent's mind. When the tlmo comes, perhaps Dr. Abbott might be able to hold a membership in a pro peace society that advocate the preparation for war as the be3t guaranty of peace. The Virtue, of Contentment. It Is my good fortune .to .be of a disposition which Is submissive to what ever happens. I am always able to nay I am content. Mayor Gaynor. And long before his day, a greater man than tho mayor of New York City gavo utterance to the vory same wise philosophy: I have learned in whatsoever Btate I am. therewith to bo content. Saint Paul, Phllipplans iv:ll. The story of tho apostle's llfo teaches, however, that he came by this submission through a growth in sraco, moro than the gift of a dis position. "It is hard for thee to kick against tho pricks," tho voice said to him on his way to Damascus, But no man had resisted moro than Paul (as Saul) did tho Inevitable, according to his own story. It is qulto possible to bellovo that, it Mayor Gaynor has attained unto such sublime indlfferenco to disagreeable things as to yield a ready submis sion, he has more than an inherited disposition to thank for It. Strongth of character in any fac ulty comes as a rule from the ox- I.erienco of meeting and surmounting obstacles and difficulties. Properly poised bqtween a laudable discontent to stand still and a graceful self-re- Ltralnt, submission to one's lot as it is Is wholly worthy and admirable and teaches a lesson of profit to all. It is something too few "attain. i 7 Argentine and Domestio Beef. A consignment ot frozen beef from the Argentine recently arrived In Brooklyn via London, whero It had been reshlpped, and sold in Brooklyn for 1 Vi cents a pound cheaper than our western beef. Nobody argues, though, that it compares with tho quality ot American beef. The fact is, its condition Is such as to roqulro cooking on the day of sale, for it is guaranteed to keep only twenty-four hours after removed from refrigera tion. The Brooklyn Eagle says, however, commenting on a market man's assertion that "a big trade in this foreign moat may induce Brook- lynltes to eat frozen beef instead of tho native beef from tho west," that it is hardly a question of "Instead," because there aro moro and moro Brooklynttes who at present prices can oat only tho fresh native beef of tho west on Sundays and high feast dayB. Then it adds that with the tariff removod from moat this Argen tine product would be 3 cents a pound cheaper than the domestic article. Granting all that, If, as the Eaglo also points out, American packers already own and oporato plants throughout the Argentine, how soon would it be before they extendod thoir operations abroad so ns to enable thom to meet the exi gencies of free trade to their own advantage more than the consum ers'? If the production of this na tive beef of the west wero keeping paco with the consumption demand tho problem of the high cost of meat would help solve itself. It those 300 men laid oft in Mon tana by Jim Hill "becauso ot the rato case decision" will hustle south they can get rich following tho succeeding harvests in tho various states and work tholr way back to Montana by fall, when Mr. Hill's railroad work will need them again. What is thla, the Real Estate ex change stung by the Water board? "Oh, Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often." etc. In other words, that Is the most unklndest cut ot all, after all those years of battling which the oxchange has done for the commo dore and his craft. Down at Lincoln complaint is be ing heard over the high cost of In sanity cases, the total bill for these hearings so far this year already ag gregating $644, If this is a just cause of complaint, Douglas county ought to be raising a sky-splitting outcry.

A Princeton theological student has Just broken the records for all round athletic skill made by Martin Sheridan and James Thorpe. Washington Post: Thirty advertising men delivered lay sermons In as many Baltimore churches, and tho hypnotized congregations carried their hymn books home under the impression that they had Just been presented with a de luxe edition of Nicholas Carter's complete works. Pittsburgh Dispatch: A Missouri minister says tho title "reverend" means nothing. "A preacher is no more reverend or to be revered than anyone else. I do not object to 'doctor or even 'doc,' but when they say 'reverend' I become belligerent." Speaking for him .self "doc" is probably right. There is certainly nothing reverend about him. New York World: The determination of various New York clergymen to re quire health certificates as a prerequisite to marriage, and their announced inten tion of holding "platform meetings" for the discussion ot the eugenics ot mar riage, raise a nice question of ministerial authority. Is not the subject one that concerns legislators and the medical pro fession more than It docs ministers? Aa a matter of professional courtesy or reciprocity, the ministers might allow the doctors to participate in church reg ulation. A PRESBYTERIAN HERETIC. New York World: The death of the Rev. Dr. Charles A. Brlggs is a reminder of the extent to which Interest in theological, controversy has declined both within and without the church in less than a generation. Springfield Republican: It is being re marked that If Dr. Brlggs had lived later he would not have been much of a heretic. But, on the other hand. If he had lived earlier he might have been lucky to escape an auto-da-fe. Baltimore- American: Much that Dr. Brlggs proclaimed is now accepted by most religious teachers and the church has become adjusted to an extent to ad vanced thought, Yet much that higher criticism confidently proclaimed has failed of acceptance or authentication. Kansas City Times: While the pro fessor of Biblical theology, one of the greatest Semitic scholars of his day, wa a loader in upholding the rights of the higher criticism, ho was essentially a conservative in matters of faith. He was wholly out of sympathy with the theological radicals of tho present time, and he attacked their doctrines as vigorously as his own had been attacked two decades ago. Detroit Free Press: Though Dr. Brlggs was best known to the world at large as the hero or victim of the greatest heresy trial the Presbyterian church has known, his name among students was closely as sociated with careful scholarship and re search, and with large contribution to the theological writings of the day.. His. knowledge of Semitic literature was ex haustive and he was welcomed as an equal by tho best Hebrew scholars of Europe, with whom 'he frequently col laborated. If Dr. Brlggs had not been known as a great heretic he might have been famous as a great American scholar. A llecklenB Fnncy. Indianapolis News. Isn't Prof. Taft rather reckless In de claring.
