An Opportunity for Omaha to Grasp. The announcement by tho railroads ot spe cial rates to the Panama exposition Is a ro mlndor that Omaha is tho half-way station on the main artery of transcontinental travel over which a larger number of tourists will pass next year than over bofore. This la tho natural point for travelers to break tho trip, and Omaha should make itself an Inviting stopover place. But what special facilities or accommoda tions have we provided for the comfort and. con venience of strangers? True, when wo l:.tvo conventions in jour midst we look after the dole gates and accompanying guests, but what do we do for tho tourist who just stops off with no particular meeting to attend, and no acqualnt nnceshore to give him pcrsonnl attention? Tho truth is Omaha hns sadly neglected this kind ot visitor. Ho Is left to his own resources, not only without help to gratify his desire to see tho city, but kept in ignorance of what attractions Omaha has to offer. Most other cities of our pretentions provide much better for the stranger. Street signs tell Jilm bow to find his way about; public buildings and places of interest nro laboled; street car conductors call the streets and assist puusen gers to find their destination; tho clubs ami churches take pains to offer hospitality; a per' manent reception committee Is on deck all tho time; nothing is omitted to make every visitor see the best side of the city and its people. It should bo rcmenibored that tho tourist is on the move, and that he Is going to make compari sons; that his report of observations to frinndn on his return homo Is sure to Influence them In turn. Omaha should wuke up to the opportunity which is in front of us. l That Legal Cleanup Don't be in too much of a hurry to put your winter overcoat In storage.

Still, that is equal to tho prlco of 800,000,000 beers, , Orogon Is lo vote on a constitutional amend ment abolishing tho state senate. It Is not made clear whether tho move is In tho interest of economy or only of honesty.

And they aald, we taw certainly that the Lord wa with thee; and wo nald, let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with thee. Oenesla xxvl. 28. Ablmelech, with his Philistine cMoftalno, followed Isaac from tho vnlley of Oerar up to Beer-sheba to mako this poaco offering. They had struggled with him In tho valley, their herd men had contended with Isaac's for the water from tho wells, which Isaac rodug after his father Abraham, but struggled In vain, The Isrnolltlsh leader was faithful' to the promiso, hooded tho volco and received tho benediction of tho Lord, vanquishing the Philistines. In other words, Isaac had made good and that 'was why Abimclcch besought him with this proposi tion. ( It was true then, and it is true now, that you cannot gain and hold tho interest of lien in an individual or enterprise that is not mak ing good. That is tho sum and substance of 'ho saying that "Nothing succeeds like success." It Is infectious. Men readily fall In with what ever Is taking, going ahead, but not easily with what Is going back or standing still. Our idea is that tho only thing tho church has to do to sccuro the advantages derived from such sporadic efforts as this "go-to-church" projoct is to make a conspicuous success of its Job; to do it so woll as to mako mon see that the "Lord is with thee." In that event It will aor havo to run after tho Abimelochs and tho Ahut zaths and tho Phtchols quljo as much with so- many now plans of. attraction, but, rather, wo fancy, will find, as Isaac did, a turning of ho pursuit in its favor. ( Truo, it was not until Isaac had built his altar nl Beor-shcba that ho heard tho Lord say. "I am with theo," repeating tho covenant that ho had made beforo with Abraham. But tho building ot tho altar, Indeed, the repairing to Boor-sheba in the first placo, was only In complement of tho vlctorios of faith so sublimely achlovod in tho valley of Oerar. This evident awakening in tho forces of roltglon is inspiring. See how men ot all classen fall in with tho promotion schemes. But tho real victory and permanent success that must do tho attracting and holding in up to the church, which by this token is confronted by a superlative opportunity, The British liberals may critictso and cen sure their king all they pleeso In tho Ulster or any other controversy, but he can continuo to do what in his Judgment seoms best without fear of a recall petition. Perhaps you havo noticed that Omaha has moved Up two nptches in tho bank clearings scale, ranjtlng fifteenth now, instead of seven teenth among Amorlcan cities, while standing about thirty-sixth in population.

The salo at public auction At a lot with negllglblo improvement at tho corner ot Twonty-fourth and Farnam for the record prlco of $100,100 testifies to tho strength of Omaha real estate values, and tho firm confldoneo thut exists In tho city's stability and future growth. In this case tho price is considerably in excess ot what it was generally expected the propert would bring, and tho sale is sura to stiffen values all along the lino. It should, and cer tainly will, stimulato local real ostato Activity and strongly reinforce tho advico that well placed Omaha real estate Is about the best in vestment In sight. Mountain and Molehill, Thoso august Bonators, who marched up tho hill with so much gusto on tho occasion of Am bassador Pago's London speech, now havo tho exquisite nlternativo of walking down again. Tho demand for a verbatim reading ot tho speech In tho sonato has boon me', the Monroe doctrine Is still extant, tho Lord is in hi holy templo and tho government at Washington lives. Tho speech, after tho reading, was reverently consigned to that tomb ot eternal rest, whence goes all such innocent Instruments onco they havo served thotr little purpose "referred to the committee." Let this be carefully noted in passing, that the channels ot publicity, as well as tho am bassador, havo been vindicated, Tho wording of tho speech was substantially ns reported in tho press dispatches. Tho newspaper corre spondents had not garbled it. Truth is, tho senators, who raised tho hubbub, seem to bars been the only ones at fault in the entire situa tion, tinloss, possibly, it might be deemed un wise for a diplomatic representative abroad to make any Bort ot a speech whatever bo7ond thu most perfunctory, such as might bo heard around any ordinary elub house dinner table. All honor to the valor of our aanatnrUi custodians of tho Monroo doctrine, but In this case they scorn to havo suceoded admirably in making a mountain out of a molehill. Governor Morohead eeenis to have decided to go on the congressional race track in defer ance to his implied promiso to seek a second term In the executive office. It goes without saying that this example ot self-abnegation will have a powerful influenco upon President Wll son whenever he is reminded of the one-term plank In bis platform. Why should Maryland arrogate to Itself the msiincuon ot erecting a monument to Admiral Schley? There Is honor enough to go round. Cnrloon lllls thr Stark.

It was such a particularly happy and apt recognition of the Spring Market Week that we desire to congratulate both The Bee and Us cnrtoonlst, Mr. Donne Towell, on Its conception and publication. ARTHUR C. SMITtr, Tresldent M. B. Smith & Co. Wlinl'a the aiolter -rvlth Prrnuhemf SILVER CREEK, Neb., March K.-To the Editor of Tho Bco! What Is the mat ter with the preachers? They are getting hysterical. Are they afraid of losing their Jobs? When they look on their empty pews and consider the annual de oreasA of the percentage of gain In church membership well they may be afraid. But why should they be afraid If they are honest men ot being de graded from their high catling of para sites and drones and forced to eat their bread In the sweat of their faces? If men do not go to church It Is be cause they find little there' to attract thrm and muoh to repel. Without an Invitation flies -will swarm Into an empty sugar barrel, but not even a governor's proclamation could Induce rhem to go Into an empty vinegar barrel. If In the blazing light of modern civilization and tho wonderful advance of knowledge In cvfry field of human endeavor the churches are fast losing their hold on the mind and hearts ot men, why should not that fact too be taken as an Import ant factor In tho lifting up and better men of the ruman race? I so regard It. In appealing to the governor to Issue his proclamation asking the people - to go to church tho preachers admit the weakness of their cause and their fear of Its downfall. In appealing to the strong arm of the law the preachers ad mit that they have lost all faith in the strong arm of the Lord'Vthat Ldrd who onco solemnly promised to give them whatsoever things they might ask In Ills name. In their desperation and terror the preachers havo now exalted the governor above their Lord. The harpoon of truth hns entered their vitals and not even a policy of "watchful waiting" Is necessary while It does its proper work, Tn tho term "preachers" I do not mean to Include priests, rabbis and the proph ets of tho minor seoin. Aa yet they do not appear to be Involved in this ntous panic. CHARLES WOOSTER. lacksonrlllf! and Oinuhn. OMAHA. March 2C.-To tho Editor of The Bee: In view of the statements made recently In an Omaha newspaper compar ing the- electrlo lighting situations In Jacksonville and Omaha, I feel that an Injustice is being done the city and the Interests involved. It has often been said that nothing la so fatso as a part of the truth; and this form of deception has certainly characterized all of tho state ments made. Efrt has been made to compare the alleged rate of 7 cents in Jacksonville to the 12-cent portion ot the Omaha rate, no mention being made of such current ns Is sold lighting customers at 1 cent less than Is even. claimed for Jackson ville. The Injustice of this distortion of facta Is only partlatly demonstrated by the fact that for every unit of current sold for 13 cents by the Omaha company. three and One-third units were sold at 6 cents, to lighting customers, to say noth ing of the discount of & per cent allowed for prompt payment. But these compari sons are of interest only when the whole truth Is told. In stating tho charge made tor current In Jacksonville tho fact that every small consumer pay to the olty. In addition to the rate of 7 cents per kilo watt hour, a charge ot CO cents per month, Irrespective of whether any cur rent Is furnished or not. has either pur posely or Inadvertently been neglected. The effect ot the Jacksonville rate can be most forcibly demonstrated by actual application. Consider the lighting charges for the residence of a well known Omaha citizen, B, O. Babcock, Wfl South Thirty fourth street. In January nine kilowatt hours were used, for which tho charge Was 11.03. In Jacksonville the charge would bo $US. In February and March five units were used each month, for which the charge was 67 cents. In Jack sonville the oharge would be S5 cents. In this Instance the average rate for three months In Omaha was 1L4 cents, as against 14.9 cents, tn Jacksonville, Here there Is a very apparent difference be tween the claimed 7 cents and the actual rate, of 14.0 cents. It Is ot no little Interest to note that all Interest, depreciation, and, as a matter of fact, all overhead expense In Jackson ville Is paid out of the general tax fund, while tho charge for current pays only the major portion ot plant operating expense. At the same time the city of Jacksonville la losing annually almost 190,000 property tax alono on the electric lighting plant. Contrast this to the can dltlon in Omaha. For every kilowatt hour sold by the Omaha company at 12 cents, S.S cents are paid baoU to the cty. In the firm ot taxes, which with the free renewals of carbon liimi. more than offsets the apparent difference ot 4.4 cents In the rato and no considera tion of the' Jacksonville 0 yearly serv ice has beon made. Considering tho matter from another viewpoint, It Is evident that while the majority ot the Jacksonville lighting customer pay a service charge of fC a year for which no cuVrent Is delivered, tho Omaha company pays In taxes al most IS.W for every customer supplied, and does not require either a minimum or service charge from any lighting cus tomer. In the statement ot charge ror In dustrial power, the sin ot omission has again robbed the article of its truth. In the first place limitations aa to the time ot day this power Is available precludes Its use for most Industrial purposes, whereas. In Omaha unlimited use of Industrial power Is offered at rates averaging lower when all charges are considered. In supplying power to customer In Jacksonville, eaoh customer must either pay to the olty the cot of erecting the transmission line running to his service, the cost of transformers and meters, or pay one cent moro for all current used. I claim that Omaha has never lost a new Industry as a rosult ot high power costs, a statement endorsed by the Com mercial club, and as a matter ot fact many plants have been attracted by our rates, and seoured through our efforts, F.

Tho grand jury hag finally got after them and quite a number of Indictments are reported, Tho dirty outfit Includes lawyers, capitalists, shady woften and young rake?. Homo of the persons who at one time wore powerful nnd popular are found to have private habits and dealings that would disgrace the very dregH ot tho ditch. And to think that the great legal profession of Omaha should furnish the majority of tho Indictments. There Is no excuse for a lawyer being crooked. He who Is supposed to know the law, and bus sworn to uphold It, deserves a greater pen alty than the ordinary Ignorant crook.
