The succession of dramatic ovents growing out of the Ulster situation has reached several climaxes, most notablo of which Is, not tho resig nation of army officers, or oven tho war secre tary, but the personal activity of King George. Even tho highly partisan role Lord Roborta has played on tho side of Ulster does not compare with this, especially with thoso who have been accustomod to look upon the crown as but u token of authority. Tho king, of course, though attempting con ciliation, has failed to gratify nil; indeed, ho has admirably succeeded in incensing the liberals, who regard this whole affair as simply a Tory attempt to browbeat tho government and down tho principle of popular freedom, to use the ex pression of John Redmond, leader of the na tionalists. "Whether that be ontlrcly true or not, tho king rather challenges admiration for tbo bold and fearless part he Is playing, and it would not bo surprising if in the end his influ ence proved helpful. Events havo gone far enough to make it plain that nothing short of rare wisdom is going to bring this issue to a satisfactory determina tion. Evidently tho unionists are playing for tlmo In all the vortex of this present storm. Jf they should succeed In otfecting another pro longed stay this measure for home rule might bo defeated in tho next election by changing tbo party in power. Nevertheless, thero is no pres ent warrant for discounting too far tho possibil ity of continuod dissension and trouble Great Britain has simply como a llttlo late in the day to the crux of a question It must settle A Model Water Works Report. The Bee is in rccoipt of tho annual report of the Milwaukee water works covering its op erations for the year 1913, which strikes us as being a close- approximation to a model roport. The water works In Mllwaukeo is munici- pnlly-ownod and operated through a superin tendent under tho direction of the commissioner of pubilo works. Irrespective of comparisons. the value of the property is given in roiud fig ures as 17,485,000, which is abouj $600,000 more than tho present valuation at which our Omaha water works are carried, while tho num ber of metered consumers in Mllwaukoe is 69,- 233, or somowhat more than twlco tho number served hore. The costs and revenues, and other items, aro given In detail, but most graphic of all is the computation on tho basis of each 1,000 gallons of the total pumpage with, and without, inter est on invested capital. For example, the cost per 1,000 gallons, Including all. ordinary ex penses, sinking fund charges, depreciation, esti mated taxes and 4 per cent interbst on net In vested capital, is 4.459 cents, and the "similarly computed cost on 80 per cent of the total purap ngo for which the department receives revenue is G.G34 cents. As against this cost, the price charged to consumers in Milwaukee Is 6 cents per 1,000 gallons, and to consumers outside tho city limits 8 cents, making an avorago rovenuo per 1,000 gallons on tho per cent of total pump ago sold of 6,185 cents per thousand gallons. Even on that close margin the Milwaukee water works, aftor paying running expenses and cred iting Interest on Investment at 4 per cent, let', a net Income of nearly $260,000. Incidentally, it is interesting to note that Ic Milwaukee thero Is no minimum charge or serv ice charge, tho consumer paying G cents per 1,000 gallons for only what ho actually con sumes as indicated by tho meter. All water, howovor, must bo motored, and the water wasted has been tremendously reducod by com pulsory metering. The Nlne-Lifed Beast. The way in which tho assombly foil on Moyor Mltchol'a police commissioner bill seems to sug gest that Tammany and Murphy still havo a llt tlo pull at Albany, dead ob they may be tem porarily In Gotham. This was tho measure In vesting the police commissioner with plenary powers designed to attract Colonel Qoethals to take the place which tho mayor urged upon him Even though It had succeoded, It would still seom like a wild goose chaso so far aa Colonel Uoethals is concerned, for the very biggest that tho New York cotnmisslonorshlp could be made would, not bring the position up to tho propor tions; of tho governorship of tho Panama. From a strategic standpoint alone the exchange of offices would 'seem very unwise for Governor Goothals. Ho had given a final decision with out waiting for the Tammany cohorts to lay their faithful axes to the measure. Politically, tho rebuff appears to bo a dis tinct Murphy victory, though whether it carries much weight outsldo of the Tammany-bossed assombly is another question. Nevertheless, the action Is a stern reminder of tho nine-llfod nature of this fellno beast with which tho Ideal istic young mayor Is dealing. , a Rural Arithmetic. A Kansas educator has produced what he calls "a rural arithmetic," designed especially for use In country schools attended by boya and girls from tho farm. It teaches arithmetic in terms of good farming and good citizenship. Its examples and problems havo to do particularly with the things ot the farm. For Instance, It ieals with land, horses, cows, swine, poultry, eggs, crops ot all sorta; with rural credits, good roads and, In fact, everything that directly or Indirectly goes to make up the atmosphere and life of the farmer. The intended and probable effect is to mag nify the Importance of these aspects or life in the minds ot the fanner's children, to fascinate them with the farm, to deepen and broaden their interests in the farm and finally to niako them want to be farmers. It Is, In other words, a very adroit method of fostering the "back-to-tho-farm" idea, having the excellent quality of being remedial instead ot curative. Whether It will not work as planned no one yet knows, We do know, howover, that the rural education that centers the child's thoughts .and fancies so largely in city life to the dispar agement ot the farm does not cultivate a li ve for the farm In the children or make them more eager to stay wltii it. The new idea Is based on the very logical theory that It is easier to hold boys and girls on the farm who were bom and reared there than to draw city-bred people from the city. This is so simple that it certainly ap peals to the common sense of the common person. "A Word to the 'Wise." BRADSHAW, Neb., March S.-To tho Editor of The Bee: In your letter box "H" says. "If the minister of Omaha would preach short sermons, then every Sabbath would be a 'Oo-to-Church day.' Very well said, but "II" should remem ber that ministers aro educated In our colleges and seminaries, and their Kng llsh vocabulary has no limit, and what Jesus Christ would tell the world In three minutes, It takes the average, well- educated minister from forty to sixty minutes to get Intelligently beforo their hearers, and wo agree with ''IV that a less flow of language and n cutting ot all vaudeville and theatrical perfor mances In the pulpit would greatly shorten the program and might result In great good as an Inducement for people, togo to church. But will "II" tell us what would be tho result If the theaters would shorten tholr programs to about twenty or thirty min utes, The writer has known lots ot people who would complain about long church services that tho entlro program would conclude In one hour's time, who would go and sit In a cramped up and crowded theater for nearly three hours and never register a word Of complaint. There Is some difference In who and what me are serving. "Get me?'' JOHN B. DEY. An Kxplansitlon from Broken Hoit. BROKEN BOW, Neb., Starch 25. To the Kill tor of The Bee: I note a special telegram from our city which Is not In harmony with the facts in the case. It states that an independent caucus was held and a set of city officers nominated In opposition to the municipal ticket. As secretary of tho Municipal Ownership league I wish to state that there Is no municipal ticket here, nor has there ever been, aa the organization Is yet In Us In fancy and took no steps toward putting up a ticket. The citizens nominated a citizens' ticket at a citizens' caucus, and In opposition to this an independent cau cus waa held, which your correspondent sees fit to designate aa the people's cau cus. Please glv space to this statement, as we desire that no wrong Impressions bo left. W. W. WATERS. Danish Consul tu Omnlin. SIDNEY. Nob., March 24.

Editor's Note Otto Wolff, IBM Sherman avenue la the Danish consul In Omaha. WhHt'a the Blatter Trltu Mexico t OMAHA, March St.-To the Editor ot The Bee: Mexico is today furnishing to tho world an example of the accomplish ments of anarchy. The anathema of dis rupted, disorganized government has cast Itself upon the land of our neighboring country to tho south. In the midst of bloody turmoil, where revolution has fol lowed revolution, Mexico Is undergoing an Internal struggle that is horrifying the entlro world. The methods of the opposing "armies'' In Mexico surpass tho comprehension ot a civilized world. In the annals of war fare, ancient or modern, it Is difficult to find a counterpart to the present con ditions in that land. There aro those who say that tho mixed Spanish and In dian blood of the representative Mexican renders him a warlike, Indolent person and an exceedingly difficult one to gov ern. Yet It is not disposition ot tho Mexi can that it causing- the continuous dis turbances in his country. Am a matter of fact, the great bulk of the citizenship ot Mexico, the mass ot illiterate and easily swayed Mexicans, are fighting the battles of a few scheming, desperate leaders. Moro than 76 per cent of the population of Mexico may be, termed Illiterate. Edu cational methods in Mexico follow more closely cock-fighting, sotol drinking and the bull ring than tho "three B's," The pastimes of a nation to a large extent iltuetrato Its relative degree of advance ment up tho ladder of civilization and Mexican uports attain a barbaric limit unapproachod by practically any other country in the world. Hence it is, that with a seml-borbarlo horde, naturally boated with the passion for the guerrilla mode of fighting, the dominant Mexican leaders havo little difficulty in inaugu rating a revolution at most any time. The success of the movement resolves Itself into the craftiness of its leader, his ability to away and hold tho crude soldiers. For yeara Dlaa. reigning with an Iron hand, succeeded In holding" the Mexican situation in his grasp, whllo he prostituted the country's resources for his own personal gain. His greediness was his own undoing. Madero succeeded to tho presidency his assassination at the hands of the Huerta tools followed. Huerta today appears to dominate In Mexloo, but the country has yet to pro duce a character strong- enough to mas tcr the political situation of entire Mexico. Treachery, murder, theft and prevari cation these have been the implements employed by each of the last several aspirants ror the doubtful privilege of be ing Mexico's president. And Mexico faces an impossible task If she hopes to build of auch materials an enduring gov ernment which shall rightfully demand the recognition of other nations. No country has ever found other than dis aster, shame and disruption In the doc trines of that type of anarchy which has so omnlvorously gripped Mexico, On the other hand, the policy which Mexico is now pursuing will surely precipitate the country into the abyss of deterioration which years and years of capable gov ernment will not be effective in over coming. This is the price which Mexico is pay ing for her Ignorance-the price of honor, life and progress. WOOD B. WRIGHT.

Sha was the first president of the Guthrie Woman's Chamber of Commerce of 600 women, the first civic organization ot the kind In (he United States. Civic Spirit in Omaha Signed Editorial by William F. Baxter, Chairman Commercial Club Publio Affairs Committee, with Spe cial Reference to Local Conditions. I am nsked by ye editor to say something about ctvlo spirit Numerous comments havo been read nnd heard recently a'bout the tack of It and the need of It Civic spirit. What Is It? How defined? How expressed? Patriotism, more or less doruiant, may bo found in the breast ot every citizen, bur In action wo follow the mind's dictation of what Is more Im portant The trite saying that "this Is a material age:" that ''money and power obsess the ambitions of men," expresses In the main what Is Important to most Clvlo spirit Is a social attribute. Society In order to progress must have rules, laws. These are not sufficient as such, but only effective perma nently when founded upon natural law moral law. Particularly )a It Important that that fundamental statement of human liberty, "Man may do all that ho wilt so long as he Infringes not the equal rights of all others," be regarded. When the rules ore Ignored and tho lawn violated; when power Is ex ercised to promote class party; clique, political am bition or privato greed by the Influential citizens of any community, civic spirit, social sense, .goes out and discord, discontent and indifference enter. The cry has gone out for leadership, meaning, doubtless, a man or men. My thought Is that a causa that would sink for the tlmo thought of self interest, that would enthuse and unite, an Ideal that would be worthy of struggle, a real welfare movement would develop all needed leadership. One year ago tho forces of this city were united for restoration work. Leaders wero not lacking. Why cannot the same forces In a similar way, with the same thought of social welfare, unite for progress as well as for replacement We havo long been taught to look to the dally press for leadership and much has been furnished In tho post I believe we are seeing Its decadence, and why? Because that Idea of leadership which, to be effcctlvt, must seek the welfare, progress and betterment for all, Is at variance with the more mod ern theory, that the newspaper is the private business concern of the owner and must bo used to produce 'profit or power. I concede the samo right to this latter view aa exists In any other business, but I con tend that If followed, the idea of publio leadership must be abandoned. If It Is organization that is needed, we no not lack, certainly not if the plural be permitted, for we have an organization for nearly every phase of ac tivity. Perhapa because of this multiplicity, support of them Is perfunotory. But, for whatever reason, thero Is certainly a lack ot purposeful Interest Ac tivlty in some of the more Important is clearly recognizable as a furtherance of personal amouion or tho desire of support to some privato undertaking, Particular interest in the question of clvlo spirit seems to havo been stimulated by the recent elec tion, when projects believed by many to bo essential to tho city's prpgress, foiled of approval by the electorate: partly through direct disapproval and largely through Indifference. ' If I am to express an opinion, Mr. Editor, I would give as ono reason to my mind the most important reason for the condition of disapproval, discontent and indifference that certainly exists. Two years ago there came voluntarily together a group of men whoso purpose it was to unite the good citizens of this community in a movement that should take hold of the affairs of this city and con duct them In the Interest of Its development and the welfare of alt Its citizens. No creed was established, no system endorsed, no theory advocated, no interest represented to which any good citizen could not have subscribed. I need neither defend nor excuse tho mistakes In policy, the errors In Judgment, t'4 Ignor ance of mctropoUtan politics, nor any other fault In action. It needs but to assert, and I know of its truth, that the motive was puro, jthat co-operation was everywhere sought, and that counsel was widely asked. I am sure that, crude though It may have been, It waa a great opportunity for a get together movement Nowspapcr support waa lack ing: the reasons soemed then and now quite clear in the minds of many. There was. however. Very gen eral support throughout the cjty, a support that I believe grew enormously with 'the success of the op position to this movement, composed of an alliance between the office Beekers, publio service corpora tions, the vie elements, and business men looking for favors, aided by the raqt tnat tne election ma chinery waa entirely In their hands. That support has grown since. It is bigger now than It waa then. It Is more powerful now than it waa then. It is sulking a bit It lacks the opportunity of proper ex pression, but that will come; meantime It Is say ing "No." Twice Told Tales a neruru auuw urltlotsui. One ot Bernard, Shaw's dramatic criticisms is the bhortest on record. It was about a ploy, called "Poor Jonathan,'-' and Shaw's notice was simply, "Poor Jonathan." Not long after "Arms and the Man" appeared, and at the end of tho first performance thero were loud, calls for tho author. Mr. Shaw came before, the cur tain, and as he did so a catcall from a displeased spectator smote his ears. With swift repartee he flashed In the direction from which it came. "Yes. I quite agree with you; but what can we two do against a houseful?" Those fool Questions.
