Tho proposal, in connection with the latest projector coaBt-to-coast au tomobile highway, to call Omaha tho Midway City should remind us of Omoha'a nominal and actual distinc tion as tho Gato City of the West, a proud title eecurod first by geograph ical location and thon by territorial development Because of its pecu liar location, Omaha became the east ern terminus and Official headquar ters of tbo first transcontinental lino, tho building of which linked the two oceans and marked America's advent as a world power. Nor has tho com ing of othor transcontinental lines altered our pro-eminence as tho typ ical uato Olty, becauso tho route reaching out from Omaha is tho shortest over survoyod from tho Mis souri river to tho Pacific coast, mak ing it, therefore, the most practical. Tho permanence of the Omaha gateway is thus secure It is, in fact, tho Gate City of tho West, whether for sentimental reasons It bo called tho Midway City or by any other pleasant natno. Here through this portal during the years of trade conquest and agricultural development have poured the advancing armies west- ward. Hero In oarly days was tho outfitting station for tho pioneers and prospectors, following tho "star of omplro," or seeking tho golden fleece, and hero will this great gato to the west continue to swing open as tho multitudes of omplro builders pass through. The stern necessities of business, more than mero Senti ment) make Omaha what it Is to the west and to tho east. The Difference. Tho Omaha Beo condemn right roundly the caucus rule that hae proven so effective at Washington, but It has not found time yet to commend Senator Hitchcock for repudiating It Lincoln Star. If tho senator's spectacular walk out from tho caucus, and his Iator denunciation of It wore sincere and on tho square he would bo entitled to unstinted commendation. No ono believes, however, that if the demo cratic caucus bad accepted his pet Scheme, and by caucus decreo bound every domocratio senator to vote for it, and to voto down all amendments to It, there would havo been any walkout. The senator has been In con gress for nearly a doien yeara par ticipating In party caucuses right along without finding any fault with them. To an ouUlder it looks as If he were declining now to play only because the others will not play his way, an4, licMaa tally, because an ether distinguished Nebraska demc at sits aearer the heat! of the pres- 'aaatial table. Telk fer tke Oakiaet? Aa, interesting yettUcel fall- aur- rousas the appolatmeat of Jeeesk W, Folk, forssef geveraer ef 'MtoseaHi to the peeitiea ef solicitor for the State experts eat The story ruas that Mr. Folk, who was one of the "presi dential possibilities" prior to tho BaUlsaere convention, would havo declined this office but for the promise of a promotion to something better later on, something "equally as attractive to him as a United States sonatorshlp, otherwise ho would re main in Missouri and run against Senator William Joel Stone at the end of his term. Tho next Chapter reveals tho plan of Secretary Bryan to retire and be succeeded by Mr. Folk and this is the story, Itself. It must be confessed that stranger things have happened. Folk in strong with Bryak and Bryan with Wileea' aad few have believed that Brxaa would loag remain In the cabinet, Farther, the atory says that both the prestdeat and Mr. Bryan have heea for three months urging Mr, Folk te accept hie new position and that he finally assented only on thle assurance. Leading color to the rumor Insofar as it touches the sen atorshlp, is Senator Stone's ardently avowed gratification at Mr. Folk's appointment Wiitle Mr, Folk has had no publlu experience calculated to tit him for the delicate duties of diplomacy, lie is no worse oft in this respect than Mr, Bryan and might develop much moro fitting sense of the dignity of the office than Bryan and grow up" to it faster. Governor Suitor has finally como to the conclusion that he is not en titled to act as governor when under impeachment, which puts in bad a lot Of learned commentators who have been arguing In the public prints that the governor's powers and preroga tives could not be Impaired by any thing short of conviction and verdict of removal. The Nebraska constitu tion expressly provides that Impeach ment carries with it suspension of the officer, and this development proves that impeachment in Now York Is essentially the same as impeachment In Nebraska. It Is funny that some of our most sapient and solemn citltens declare the High School of Commerce a de lusion and a snare, as well u waste of taxpayers' money, while others contend that It is indispensable to the development of our youth.

But for the prompt and efficient Serv ices of the Omaha fire department, the Jennings hotel at Ninth and Harney streets, one of the city's oldest hostelrles and landmarks, would have been reduced to a pile of rubbish.

No. It was only the tiny peep of cringing mental thralls, living and dying In an atmosphere of strong Illu sion, and who lacked either the nerve or the Intellect to come out Into the open and dlsouss the halt hour paper on Thurs day morning, at the time It was pre sented, and Instead thereof, resorted to the cowardly trick of the weakling at the last hour of the convention bn Fri day, when tho reader of the paper and most of the members had gone away. My writings are terse and full of sclenco and philosophy and are appreciated by thinkers, whose opinions only do f cherish. You cannot muzzle a thunderbolt -with a cobweb, nor stem the tide of Intellec tual progress that is now sweeping over tho nation. The ablest and best physi cians are now teaching how to live the dally life, so as to prevent disease. In telligent people are beginning to demand of their physicians that they teach the essential facts, and fundamental princi ples of right thinking and correct living, so as to enable everyone to resist any and every kind of germ that may find Its way into the body. Tho old plan of "doping" with medicine and cutting out the end products or results of disease without careful Instruction how to live must bo discontinued and people must be taught how to live the life so aa to pre vent disease, degeneration and early dentli. People must throw aside the fables of ancient days, and be taught the new knowledgo of this twentieth century, Thon will they havo perfect health of body and brain. And by this I mean, that condition of all organs and functions, where all the food Is properly distributed and used, and where all the Waste prod ucts are dally eliminated, and where there shall be activity of function and harmony of action. This means that the skin, bowels, kidneys and lungs shall each ho able to throw out the poisons that only they can do. pvef y cell of the liver must do ts duty, so that they w)ll not become overloaded with poisons and become In capable of doing .their work. This poison ing of the blood stream by Improper foods and failure to get rid of Waste matters Is the fundamental cause bt all diseases. If pe6plo would think right And live right there would be few or no diseases, and much more than SO per cent of surgical operations would be unnecessary, because people knowing how to live and obeying the law wpuld not have the troubles that how afflict them. During the year 1913 in Omaha there were N1,TM deaths, of which it Is safe to say moro than 1,000 Were sacrificed upon the altar of igno rance. Does It need an earthquake to wake the People from their sleeping lethargy? is It not enough when more than 1,000 per. sons In Omaha, and more than S00.O00 in this country, go to their graves yearly through Ignorance of how to live the life, or through failure to obey and re spect the laWs of nature? When I preach the "Gospel of Health" some physicians and surgeons say I am hurting their business, and they forthwith proceed to Ho about me and curse me- But I thor- oughly appreciate tholr "love taps" and thank them for their deep interest In me ana my work, wnen tney can Bind a cloub over an active volcano and put out ts fires, rwhan they eta' hive the stars Of Infinite space within a bwifeel basket, or condense the lightatnge of the last century within the capacity bf a b,ecr bottle, then may" they be ready to bock the wheels of scientific prog ress uhd not Until then. Tha Mlenouri Valley Medical aoclety, by voting to ex clude my paper on "The New Knowledge of Disease, Prevention and Curo" from the pages of their medical Journal, con ferred upon me the greatest honor it )s in their power to bestow on any person.

Sept 21 To the Editor of The Bee: Apparently to some of your readers, tho unsigned letter Is a mooted question. To my mind thts Is easily ex plained, for any writer of experience has at Some time or another been ap proached by a near friend with some thing like thts: "I want you to gve 'Mr. Know-It-All' what s coming to him for me. He Is the worst fellqw I ever saw." Such expressions often come from men who pose as church members and leaders in pnurcn work as welt What? And wo a Christian nation, with a predor.iIna.tlng spirit of "do unto others," or "do them first," and tho services of the newspaper man enlisted. Let us consider the man who wants to send In lit thoughts for publication unsigned. He could hurl the daggers and arrows of a poisoned mind before the public and expect the editor to publish It aa news, and who ia I4 sponsible? Borne censorship Is needed and the best place to look for it Is to tho editor who hw built a business of nation-wide Interest The nom do pluipe has Its merit For Instance, some of u farmers that follow the plow have tdeas we'd like to exprots and don't want to be thrown Into the limelight too suddenly. Others of us who work In the ditch have bright thoughts; go home at night and Ull Mary Jane and she says, "Let's send It to The Bee's letter box." But the name would spoil all because that Is John Smith and because he Is Just a common laborer and his children wear patched clothes there Is nothing lo It The un signed letter must So unread, but the pom de plume Is all right and there Is a Fuon. x.
