The general tendency everywhere toward electoral referm Is for longer terms for public officials and shorter ballots to permit of more careful solootlon. Originally tho one-year, or at most the two-year, term of offico was the prevailing psrlod, and few olootive places exoapt those on the bench oxtended longer than two years. Of stato and county office right horo in Nobraska, It has come about that almost as many now carry terms of four years or longer, as carry lees than four yoars. Mem bers of our now stiite railway com mission, for examplo, are elected for six yearn, and in the county the clork of tho court, register of deeds and county commissioners have four- year torras. Tho adoption, of biennial elections In Nebraskn is Biiro'to be a forerunner of further lengthening of official terms. : With lohgor tenure, nnd fewer elections, tho short ballot must bo secured by making over lapping terms, so that only a part of tho official list Ib renewed at a ttmot That is not only tho conclusion of tho best present-day students of govern biit It is the trond of the t Ilium all overho country. Then, All Is Well. Dr, Jtilcl b'ojcda, formerly vice minister of finance of Japan and ono tlmo president of the Industrial Batik of Japan, in fnct, so big a man as to bo selected by tho Japanoso Associated Chamber of Commerco ns the official representative 'to conio to tho United States and lnvestlgato rolatlotiB affecting Japan, li(B spent six weeks investigating and has fore casted his roport In u San Francisco intorviow, In effoct he finds from a tour of tho country thai tho only anti-Jnp- aneso feeling Is In 'California, that elsowhero Amerlcaus, especially business mon, are most cordially dis posed toward tho people of Japan. Ho admits, novertheloHs, conditions Just now nro doficato, inasmuch as tho fooling abtdoa' deep-rooted hero that Japanese are Ineligible to American citizenship, that they would not assimilate with us. Of coUrso,' they could not, ho retorts, when denied tho opportunity ns now. But ho urges his government to use Its beat efforts to obtain for its! subjects in tho United States tho privilege of becoming American citi zens. Thero Is the crux of tho ques tion. Thero is whore Japan stands and ovldontly will stnnd until tho wholo question of raco Intorcouran is' disposed of hotter than nt present. Tho envoy concludes with tho as sertion that, "I havo told my countrynton thoy might hopo for Just and oqultablo treatment at tlfo hands of 'their American, neighbors," in jWhloh, ot.cpurBo. liQ.Ts. fight. .Con cerning tho matter Of .war, ho says there wllj ,bo nono unless Amoricans forpo It which .ought, tlionr to sot- tie that question.

The tlmo has como for effective protest against tho vicious tendency of 'many fiction writers to woavo tuelr stories around Immoralities and, otljor forms of Boclal delin quency. Thoy do it, of courso, bo causo it sells their wares and makes it less diflcult to got publishers. To What deplorable ends have we-como if our lltoraturo must stand or fall solely upon its money-making power, ignoring not only tho merit of writ ing, but tho moral lnflucnco as well? Aro wo hoadod toward tho tlmo whon salacious Word-palntlnir shall dotor- mlno tho merits of "best BOllora?" Tho dofenBO offered,' of courso, is that immoral characters and phases of life havo always formed a part of standard fiction; that aomo of tho most revered of tho old authors dealt In them. So they did, but for a wholly different reason and in n totally different manner than tho motlvo and method of today. Tho old writer mado his villain or Im morality the pattern of vica to bo shunned, while tho offending modorn author makes his a pattern of vlrtuo and heroism. Tho formor flotlonlat clothed these characters in hateful attiro; tho presdnUday writer makes thom attractive, alluring and to tho unwary acceptable. The wonder Is that somo of the lato f Jotion has es caped exclusion from tho malls in this Instinctively monitorial ago. Tho desirable lengtlt of a coutraut between individuals depends upon circumstances. It a tenant is leas ing a building, for example, and is convinced ho is getting the best of the bargain, he wants a long Iqase. If ho thinks tho rent will come down, or the same money will soon procure better quarters, be wants a short lease. In it contract with tho olty fixing rates tor a public service, the came rules will govern; Id that case, however. It Is generally a safo propo sition that the public interest fares better with a short contract. Well, if tho fake reform organ is willing to approve a gas franchise running twenty-fivo years, it cannot find fault with the limitation to twenty-one years contained in the home rule charter.

Tha Creed of Materialism. SOUTH OMAHA, July !. To the Edi tor of The Bee: Man feared death, so to relieve himself 'of the apprehension of his dying hours, ho created nn eternal "hereafter" tp make the thought of death more pleasant. And with man's Imagination he conceived that "here after" to be equipped with alt the good things his heart desired. He told him self: "I must die to live." Conse quently, when death was at hand, he felt that Immortality was at last to be realized. And this belief Is not only ,a cardinal decree of Christianity, but of nrftctlrnllv vrv nthr rtAWArftlt rftltsrlnn. The American Indian had his "Happy Munting arouna" long ere,, the disciples of the. Christian religion came to teach them of heaven and! hell. In such a way Is tho Innate desire for immortality ex pressed In every believer of every creed. Back, long, long years ago, when the progeny of primitive man scattered .over the earth, there may havo been a single, concrete Idea of religion. But, separated from the Influence of local conditions, this creed wa gradually evolved Into several. As time wore on, each of tho several claimed precedence or age ovor the others. Possibly the original creed perished, or it may be retained within one of the ancient doctrines. But Chris tianity (Ignoring the delightfully fantas tical fairy tale of Adom and Eve) couli' hardly have been more than a result of these elementary beliefs. "Where did' the first man inherit hia religion?" And I would nsk: "Where did he Inherit his body, hia mind, his very existence?" The secret of the world', of man's, creation ha never been and prpbably never wjh be d. closed. The first primitive men, what ever, their origin, did not possess either the knowledge or the facilities to per petuate their histories. For centuries. Perhaps, (scientific men tell us the globe is thousands of years old) men lived and died without permanent notation ot that fact. Then who ball say: "He -was the first man" and "ho did this?" If "real Christians know npne of hell" I sadly fear the pew and pulpit ot most of our churches and religious Instltu tlons are filled with bogus Christians! Why is thero constant allusion to this mythical Inferno by religious personages if there be no hell? Or I It slmpy a 'Jolly" in Christianity, something not to be taken sincerely? Religion should In all events be lncerel You illusion your, elf. 'W. T"ln referring td'my -fear" of hell.

A year ago I did not seo It as I do today 'We are so dull and thankless, and so slon To catch the sunshine till It slips away. And now It seems surpassing strange to me That while I wore the bodge of mother hood, I did not kiss more oft and tenderly The little child that brought mo only good. And It some night, when you sit down to rejit, You miss this elbow from your tired knee. This restless curly head from off your breast. This lisping tonguo that chatters con stantly; If from your own tho dimpled hand hod - slipped, And ne'er would ncstlo in your palm again; If tho white feet Into tho gravo had tripped, I could not blame you for your heart ache then. I wonder so that mothers even fret At little children clinging to their gown, pr that footprint, when the days aro wet. Arc over black enough to make them frown. If I could find a little muddy boot Or cap, or Jacket on my chamber floor If I could kiss a rosy, restless foot, And hear It patter in my home once more. If X could mend a broken cart today, Tomorrow make a kite to reach the There Is no woman in God's world could say 8he was more blissfully content than I, But. ah, the dainty pillow next my own Is never rumpled by a shining head; My singing blrdllng from Its nest has flown The little boy I used to kiss is dead!, jW New York To Thrice daily dp throuch Mew York trains of Pullman sleeping car, dln logcsrsand day ears lart Chlotrotrct, for this taesptlonally complete service, SWw.'r'o'nJUlS One War. $27.00 Round Trip.
