Aad tkat Is the way Rome aVMrietpeJlUee solve such social s, anofig tkara tha so-called mlA, ridding tkaaselvea of the st ay dwiapiBg It over Into their Third Term Again. In bis auto biography chapter In tho current Outlook former President Roosevelt talka frankly about his anti-thlrd-term proclamation, and his aubxequent interpretation of it to permit of a third term If not consecu tive. He says that when be issued tha statement on that election night In these words, 'The wise custom which llmlta th0 president to two terms regards the substanco and not the form, and under no clrcum stances will I be a candidate for or accept another nomination," he bad a two-fold reason for the choice of the exact phraseology used. Ho meant, first, to answer tho argument that bo waa just chosen to his first electlvo term becauso his succession upon the death of President McKln- Icy had not been by election, and, second, be did not specify that he Would not be a candldato In 1008 lest it might be accepted as lndl eating an Intention to be a candidate some other year. And he adds had no Such Intention, and had no Idea that I would ever bo a candidate again." v Tho "wholesome principle" of continuing a capablo incumbent In offlco Indafinl'cly, bo declares, is not appllcablo to the presidency on ac count of tho tremendous power which can be affectively used to secure a renomlnatlon, but It has "no applies tlon whatever to an ex-presldont, and no application whatever to anything oxcopt consecutive terms." Tho remainder of the discussion of the third trm is a statement of un equivocal opposition to putting any limit in tho constitution on tho ground that a domocracy should be froo In time of real national peril to command the services of every ono among Its citizens in tho precise position wbero tho service rendered will be most valuable." Strangely esougk, however, the particular ex ample- cited combats hla own argu ment against a third consecutive term by declaring that It would have been a vcrltablo calamity if tke Aaerlcaa people were forbidden to continue tka services of Abraham Lincoln If the crisis confronting them at the close of k's first term bad oe earred at the end of his second term. Nor la any referenco mado to tho re fusal of a third terra nomination to General Grant whllo he waa an ex- president, and no longer a president Just now too whole subject Is more afademja and historical than practi cal, The popular vlow of a third term at a given timo will, we take It, bo governed almost wholly by oppor tunism, aad be determined by tke eaadlttaas tkat conjure up a tklrd term candidate aad tke persea 1 ee.uatk)B et that candidate aa com pared wltk his competitors. Tteakfal far tke Immigrant. W la lit arw tha phurohaa Hlir ta make their special object ef tkaaks aivag this year? Those Included ia Ike Home Miesloa Council are aaked to "Give tkaaka for the immigrant," whs la a special subject of study aad la tar sat te tke couaell the year round. So it proposes to its coa- stituent churches: Tou have been studying about tho Im migrant and what It moans to liavo them crowding Into this country of ours. Now, glvo thanlts that they are here. Applauding tko plan, Tho Conti nent, a daringly progressiva church Paper, gees straight to the crux of this whole subject by declaring: It l easy cnouah to get aa Amorlc&n to trlva thanks for SmrelgraUea If only you start him kaok far caauait. Starting keck a few centuries, wo find a dletiftguleked Immigrant from Kaglaad, Lord Berkeley, appointed geveraer ef tke Vlrglala colony klffiseU giving thanks, aad thus he prayed: I thank Sea ftiere are ne free schools or pftHttftff ia Ykatnhv an I howa shall set have them theaa hundred years. rer learMeg has tooufht u-mr and 4(Wceaftea sad setts late 4a world, W prsnuac has divulged tfcerq and Ubeia a,tanat tha best rovernmcat. God kee Ue frem both, Bat despite this invocation, tke American genius of democracy baa continued to welcome other immi grants to this new lead of promise aad to lnfuso itself into them and through thom into tke world abroad. Tkuk have wa Droresacd In th Journey of our national destiny "our mission of tke establishment and' maintenance, of essential and vital domocracy," as Joseph Ernost McAfee .puts it in his "Foreign Mis sions From tho Home 13 mo," to sea that 'government of the people, by tho pepplo and for the people shall not porlsh from tho earth.' " What Is the uentlal difference in spirit and logio between the prayer of the British bigot and that of tha smug patriot of today, who, boasting; or citizenship In tho "beat country on earth," would close tho door of opportunity to bis follow roan from over the seas coming to gain and share that clUxenshlp? The church doea well to rouse itself to tho,ituatlon, for while sending thou sands of men and women and mil lions of dollars to extend its mission abroad, It would convict itself of ar rant inconsistency not to aolze the' Opportunity of helping those from abroad who have come to Its very doors. The Macedonian cry from flurope brought Paul from Asia, but here the order is reversed: the Mace donians are coming to the apostles. And these Immigrants of tho twen tieth century are as worthy aa were those of tho flfteonth and sixteenth centuries. 8ays Tho Continent; Ahead a hundred years from now will tot dieortmlnaUng social writers be aay' Jng that tha Hebrews who came Into tha country late In tha nineteenth century and early In tho twentieth, rtinsptrited the nation's lovo for clastic learning, and tha Italians added new grace to tha na tional life and the Bohemians and Potea and Hungarians furnished to American fiber at fresh xuggedneaa and so on through all tha call of the peoples? The boat of it Is that such leader ship finds response. Men of all creeds, and none, are beginning to appreciate their personal reeponslbll Itles and their nation's duty. Men of large Interests and small are In vesting timo and money In rudlmen tary citizenship by helping to teach theso new-comers tho English lan guago and surround them with proper moral and economic lnflu ences. fluch a privilege of service is a fit object of thanksgiving. OfficiaJ Leniency and Speeding. It Is difficult to ctxcrclso patlenco In dealing with such a disastrous au tomobile accident as occurred at Fit tcenth and Farnara streets, it was n grim fulfillment of warning predic tions repeatedly mado by The Bee. Tho setting was Idoal for Just what happened, the only wonder being that more persons wore not killed or In jured. At a timo when peoplo are going homo from thedr work, tho busy corner was crowded and the auto, driven recklessly, dashes up, encountering a moesonger boy on his wheel. In trying to dodge the boy after it is too late, tha chauffeur sends his machlno crashing into the sidewalk, hurling victims here and there. Police Commissioner Ryder admits that too much leniency "may have been shown" in tho past to reckless chauffeurs. Tho fact Is, It the ordi nances regulating automobiles had ever been anywhere near earnestly enforced such accidents would, to say the least, bo less likely to occur. Only a few days ago a similarly shocking tragedy happened pn the Dodgo street road beyond the city" a Jurisdic tion,' whero autolsta also violate tha speed limit laws with Impunity. How many such casualltiee will it tako td bring us to our senses? Ho New Year's Reception. President Wilson's decision not to bold a New Year's reception at the Wbito House sets asido one of the oldest social customs of the nation and the most democratic of all. Yet If it must be sacrificed to give htm relief from continuous aad arduous tell, it wili be muck better for hire aad tke country's business, ao doubt thaa weald be tke fatlgalag taste et etaadlag aad skaklag hands wltk tkeueaade of people tkat day. Evea tkat, however, will kardly prepare many for tke aaddea displacement ef tkla eld custom se scrupulously practiced ky succeeding presidents, It has keen a wkoleseme custom, toe, la tkal it affords a notable point ef Personal contact feetwee' tha nannta aad their chief magistrate, some thing not easy to give up in a coun try like ours.. On tho other hand, there is muck to bo considered. Continuously since bis Inauguration in March- President Wilson, none too rugged in physique, bos been under extra strain and needs a rest, ten days of which he says he can get during tho Christ mas period. Whllo we may be solicitous, of our traditions, they would mean llttlo to us unless they subserved tke eads of wisdom. One thing is of supremo importance' the health pt tke president. It may seem, indeed, ratbor anomalous for It to fall to thU particular adminis tration to overturn thiirinoat deanp cratk of all oat1 social forma at Washtagon, but this, ia a day et diminishing stress on established customs, with democrats aa well as others, Then, perhaps, by another year tho president may feel equal to the task and reinstate the recoptlon under reasonable limitations. Pay of Pullman Porters. Tho California Stato Railroad commission has taken official cognl- zanco Of the fact that a lanra nart of tbe wages of Pullman porters ta paid in gratuitous tips by the trav eling public and proposes remedial action. ' This ia vary Interesting to every porson who has occasion to travel, for none escapes the extra, toll levied for the bonoflt of the company's employes, rather also for tho company, which thus abltta the burden from Itsojt to tho public. Surely it this question comes into direct contact with official scrutiny it will fall of its own weight, for tnere is not tho slightest Justifies tlon for the prevailing system. The common carrier and not the passen ger Is responsible' for the employes' pay. The traveler Is already suf ficiently charged for the service both of the diner and the sleeper without being compolled to donate a good shore of the omploye's wages to save the company. No compul sion? Watch your neighbor in the opposite or adjoining seat refuse the tip and seo what happens. But the porter and tho waiter are not the ones to blame. They have been educated up by the company to beliove that this Is their right and they come by It honestly. It Is to be hoped tho California commission may succeed in establishing a precedent which will have to be fol lowed elsewhere and bring the needed relief. The Jobber's Side of It. In tho general effort to unload upon someone else the responsibility for the so-called high cost of living It Is natural that each factor in tho movement, from the raw material starting point to the consumption oi th- flnl.hH nr.,M .a the finished product, should come fortn with excuses or Justification. The Jobber's side of it has lately been presented by Forrest Crlsscty, drawing bis inspiration chiefly from - - grocery Jobbing, although what he says doubtless applies In a mcasary to other lines. That the Jobbers contribute to the value of the goods bandied, which the consumer afterward nava for. 1 real and substantial, is made clear by him. While they are primarily wholesalers in the sense of buvinr and shipping ia large quantities, and selling to retailers la smaller ouaa titles, in the grocery business, for example, they are also importers, storers and preservers of food, and there are backers, sorter and reno vators; they equalize tke seasonable supplies; they enable the retailers to buy on credit and carry a variety of stock they otherwise could not han dle, They perform all those serricnx because they can do them better and cheaper, and to eliminate the Jobber would by no means Insure a lowering or prices The business of th inhhm. m.t.f be closely allied with the railroad distributing center. What makes Omaha the great Jobbing point it Is, Is the network of radlatinr railroad. Every enlargement of tributary terri tory neips build up ths Jobbing In terests, not at tho oxnenso of tha people directly or indirectly servM. but In a large way sharing with them tiie mutual benefits. ftveeats' Military Camps. Success of tke exBerlmeatal mill tary camps' fer tke instruction ot students ef colleges, UBlverattles and senior classes at high schools, inau gurated under tke auspices ef the federal War departmeat last summer at Monterey, Cal aad Gettysburg, Pa., has determined the department on tne wisdom of repeating thom next summer. ' While) the primary object ot thMa camps ia to Implant an elementary knowledge of military tactic aa nre- paratioa ia case ef an emergency calling for tke defease ef tke nation. General Leonard Wood points .out their advaatage also da fostering pat riotism, "wltkeut "which a nation aooa loses its Virility and falls Into decay," habits of discipline, obedi ence, self-control, order aad com mand; further tkat they afford an exceUeat outing and vacation at the natural time for annual recreation at nominal 'sums. Only those students are admitted wke are up in their studies, of good moral character and between the ages of 18 and 30. The terra runs through July and. August. It Is to be exnected that uima whn shy at everything resembling military training, on tho ground that we ought to get as far away from mili tarism as wo can, will find 'in this enterprise a scheme to cultivate the war spirit in America, but tbla quer ulous criticism loses force In tho character of these men who have be come sponsors for, tho movement Presidents Hlbbea ot Princeton, Lowell of Harvard, Hadley ot Yale, Denny ot tke University of Alabama, HutchlM of Michigan, Drinker of Lehigh and J.

The most unreliable things In the world aro guarantees and eye- witnesses. The only time that politeness does net pay la when you applaud a bad singer. The best way to catch a sucker is to keep on telling him that he is too wise1 to bite. There are mighty few things that a newspaper ad won't recover for you. And a lost opportunity is one ot them. The trouble with following your own in. cllnatlons Is that the blame things are seldom going in the right direction.
