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
Omaha should wuke up to the opportunity
which is in front of us.

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

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

"Lord is with thee." In that event It will aor

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

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,

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
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
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,

Includes lawyers, capitalists, shady woften and
