A common cause of thanksgiving In our country Is tho growing sense of concern for the other fellow, un mistakably 'manifested In divers ways and walks of life. II Is not, If ever It was, true that one-halt the world neither knows nor cares what tho other half Is doing. Human selfish ness and vanity exist, as they always have and always will coeval with human nature, but th'ey arc not all regnant in human affairs. He must be blinded by the veil of pessimism and despair who cannot Bee in the multiplying combinations of genius, philanthropy and wealth for tho amelioration of mankind the sure sign of a new day of mutuality among men.

Con crete evldeuces of Each solicitude He about us on every hand, apparent to any honest inquirer of tho truth. No utato of easy idealism baa been reached, or, in the providence and wisdom of Qod, ever will be, for men will continue to need the Impetus and jpxorciso of tho effort to Improve, but surely the tendency of present prog ress is toward the ideal. Ours is an age of transition, to bo sure, of searching inquiry. We seem to he in th6 transport of uncertainty about a good many things apparently! vital to our organic life, but as wo move from ono test or experiment to another, we do not soom to mark some real advance, both ethically and economically? Our lr.quiry has 'the aspect of houesty. This In encourag ing, that seemingly we 'liavo put the metal of our problems Into tho cruci ble to eliminate the dross and give us tho refined truth. In this alone must bo found occasion for thanks giving by all. His Saner, the Acting Mayor. During the absence of Mayor Dahl man, tho next In command, Commis sioner Dan B. Butter, is having an opportunity to serve as acting mayor long enough to wear the strangeness eff the job, One thing may be de pended on, his honor, tho acting mayor, will gira us a perfectly eafo and san,o administration. He will not ropo any wild horses In front of the city hall; he will not write any fool letters that ought to he torn up, and he will not leave any goed noney lying around loose. It Is reasonable ,to expectt also, that It will net ha so easy to get pardons for rrietias catieht in the net.

The caretil anteist puts en double breaks of ' precaution .when the Btreeta are as slippery as tkey have been In Omana of late, knowing that at beet It is. hard to prevent skidding, and that ekkfdthg Is extra dangerour, especially In crowded downtown thoroughfares, Thus, at such times It behooves Jill who. delve cars' to ex ercise special prudence, for unless all do there still remains the HKeimoou of accidents. The aafo chauffeur cannot aline save the day In fair weather or foul.

Hunger lerixt, vs. Tariff, It ie plain new, we believe, beyond a shadow of,a doubt, that the old heu ia no respecter of tariffs. The tariff way ge up or down, sideways or troeeways, but hea fntlt, ready for market, puraues tho even tenor of tho mwan- 'l'h( hn l dnilhtlesa us good a lay as over, but she just I ran't lay fast enough to supply the) capacious aiaw of the cold storage cavern and the increasing demand for "strictly; freshles" at the Bamo trine aU the. year around. It anyone oi pec ted a democratic tariff to give tus more eggs, and cheaper eggs, ljo mbst admit It was a delusion. A hunger strike against eggs seems to bo the only. Weapon that will do what the new democratic tariff has failed to do. Complaint continues that loo large a proportion ot our fires are products of Incendiarism. We are supposed to be under the protection of a state fl;e warden, with his corps ot assist ants, and also ot a city fire warden, but, o far as we know, prosecution and conviction, of firebugs are mighty few and far between.

The question Is repeatedly asked, Why would tho governor of the great state of Pennsylvania accept the office ot president ot a base ball league? Possibly the fact that the salary so it Is said Is to bo J2B, 000 for five years has something to do with It.. ; a jxij)sy in Omaha coMtrua riox an nua NOVEMBER 27.
