The War and the Rainfall.
Twenty-five years ago, when the west was
overrun by "Rainmaker" Wright and his disci
ples, one of the dogmas set up was thst bom
barding the heavens would produce rain. In
support of this It was cited thst the battles of
the civil wsr were invariably followed by rain
fall, and the greater the battle, the heavier the
precipitation. Against this claim the scientists
et up that no bombardment possible to man
would disturb suufflclent atmosphere to produce
even a slight rainfall, and that all storms that
followed battles were but coincidental. The con
troversy Is now likely to be renewed, for the co
incidence Is again visible. It is a far cry from
the plains of Galicia to the plains of Nebrsska,
half way around the globe, but it Is a fact that
the fall of Pnemysl was followed in Nebraska by
rain of a torrential nature. Science will boo at
the thought of connecting the two events, but
the rain fell, Just the same, and the bombard
ment of Przemysl was on a scale never before
vndertaken. Two hundred thousand shells
exploded in an hour by the attacking side alone,
without counting the replying fire from the de
fenders, makes a display of fireworks exceeding
all previous experience. Thst certainly ought
to set some waves of atmosphere In motion, even
If it didn't reuse the deluge in central Nebraska.
Dancing in the- Public Parks.
One festure of the program of the new
recreation board that deserves attention Is the
provision for dancing in the public psrks. It
hss been debated a little, and opposition has
developed in some quarters, although the objec
tions do not seem to be especially well founded
or put forth with much seriousness of purpose.
Dancing is a peculiar form of enjoyment, uni
versally prsctlced, and common to all ages and
all races. The movements and figures of the
dance are expressive of the emotions, an indica
tion of mental exaltation as well as bodily ani
mation. Dancing has been In all times and
among all peoples a recognised factor in all
sorts of social functions, religious as well as
secular, and it sttll has Us part in the religions
of some tribes of men. That dancing in Itself
Is inherently harmful has never been estab
lished, but Its benefits are easily understood by
any who may be Inclined to thoughtfully con
sider the matter. Thousands of Omaha people,
old and young, continually seek the pleasure of
moving through formal figures, rythmlcally ad
Justed to the measures of pleasing music, as a
reasonable and desirable diversion. No good
reason appears why dancing, under proper
supervision, should not be permitted in publlo
parks, while much csn be said In support of the
Missouri Riyer Development. '
A report from the colonel of the United
States Army engineering corps, in charge of the
work on the Missouri river, adverse to the plan
of making a survey of the river between Kansas
City and Sioux City, Is to be vigorously opposed
by the Omaha Commercial club. The reason
given by the army engineer that the 120,000,000
needed for the construction work between Kan
sas City and 8t. Louis had not been appropriated
is not sufficient to warrant utter ignoring of
the upper reaches of the river. It may be that
no money will ever be set aside to make the im
provements suggested, but that Is no reason why
the needed preliminary steps should be neg
lected. A comprehensive survey of the Mis
souri should he made and definite and complete
plans for Its Improvement to meet the needs of
navigation worked out by the government engi
neers. Whatever system of inland waterway
navigation may eventually be adopted In the
United States, the Missouri river must be reck
oned on, and competent authority should deter
mine what must be done to make It serviceable.
Work of the Civio League.
Omaha has lately been given several con
crete Illustrations of the activity of a body of.
enthusiastic citisens who have In mind the bet
tering of conditions of life In this city. They
are not cranks, nor advocates of the impossible.
but are zealous men- and women, who have sane
and definite notions, which are practically pre
sented and as practically carried out. So far
the Civic league, which now has a membership
of about 4. 500, has dealt with the smaller
things that have usually been neglected fa the
rush to give attention to the larger.
One of the practical manifestations of its
usefulness was in the campaign against the dan
delion. In this the boys sad girls were enlisted
by the offering of suitable prises, and as a re
sult some 28.000 bushels ?f the pest, torn up
by the roots, were destroyed. The activity of
the Garden club is under the general direction
el the Civic league, and Us share In Improving
tbe waste spots of the city is enough to Justify
the existence of the league, If It did nothing
else. The peony show, Just over, at which thou
sands of magnificent blooms were exhibited.
was another of the league's achievements. .
o The lesfue hss many suggestions to offer
for the beautifying of the city, all along practical
l.oos, and it purposes an active campaign for
keeping the city clean, which it hopes to make

Ttit on National Preparedness.
Between the alarms of militarists and tbe
Insistent protests of pacificists there Is a vast
middle ground on which, may stand the multi
tude of Americans who , undoubtedly favor
reasonable preparation for national defense.
This ground is defined by William Howard Taft
In the Saturday Evening Post.
Mr. Taft Is not an alarmist nor a pacificist.
though leaning more to the latter side if Inter
national conditions afford promise of world
peace. Ills experience as secretary of war and
later as president give his discussion of ade
quate preparedness the weight of authority.
Tbrse lines of defense against invasion Mr.
Taft regards as essential the navy, coast forti
fications and a mobile array. An adequate navy,
constituting the main line of defense, he would
base on the naval program '. ot ltOS, which
called for the building of two first-class battle
ships a year, with the necessary complement of
scout ships, destroyers and submarines. Had
this program been followed the nation would
have forty-eight battleships in 19 Is. The re
fusal of past congresses to adhere to it leaves
the navy at present five battleships behind.
This deficit In defensive power, be contends,
should be made up as quickly as possible, with
such alteration ot naval plans as the lessons
ot the European war teaches.
Mr. Taft regards present national tortiflca
tlons as adequate defense for their immediate
localities. They are first-class in construction
and caliber of guns, the latter requiring only
changes In elevation to equal the range of the
largest guns of modern navies. The urgent
need in this line Is fortifications at all landing
ports, and these could be had w'thout Increasing
the national budget if the political logrollers of
congress would permit the abandonment of use
less navy yards.
The third line of defense should, in his
opinion, consist of a mobile army ot 71.000
effective men In the continental United States,
exclusive of the artillery service, and the reserva
system suggested by Secretary Garrison, these
to be supplemented by doubling the capacity of
West Point and the establishment of a military
school in the middle west.
Mr. Taft's suggestions for adequate prepar
edness are conservative and must commend
themselves to cltlsens aa signpost of the safe
middle course.

the hlMory of thla Greater Omaha movement
atralahtened out before It sets too badly twisted,
outh Omaha Omaha waa laid out aa a townalte by
Omaha people who had not tha ellshteat notion of
eatabtlfhlns a separate city except for development
purpoeea, end the abaolute neceaalty of anneiatlon wo a
clearly foreseen years ago. How the consolidation
movement took Ita Inspiration and secured Its momen
tum la clearly recalled by a latter I have Juet received
from Attorney E. F. M or arty, who has a good mem
ory, and who aaya:
"Now that the people have voted for annexation
by an overwhelming majority, and realtxtng the great
benefit that will cccrue by reaaon of auch a de
cision. It might be well to take a retrospective view
of the past that we may be able and willing to glvo
credit to the one, or ones, moat deaarvlng of such,
for having brought about final annexation. Not
wlahlnr to detract from the Commercial club or Mr.
Diets any of tha credit due to both, yet I feel that
I can frankly and truthfully state that to no higher
or greater source can be traced the original and
steadfaat champion of annexation than to the lata
Edward Roewater, founder and 4a then editor at
The Bee.
"Whlle my personal and political relationship with
this great man wre not at all tiraea of tha moat
friendly nature, yet It waa at hie urgent request
that, twenty-five year ago, aa a member of the
Omaha olty council. I prepared and Introduced a
resolution In that body which called for an election
in tha city oX Omaha for the purpose of annexing
th two cit e, that of Omaha and South Omaha;
thla resolution, having the unanimous support of the
council, waa paared; following thla. Mr. Roaewater
and myeelf proceeded to South Omaha, where we
secured like action on th part of the South Omaha
olty council, the election waa held, and Omaha voted
almost unanimously for the proposition, a majority
of tha voters of South Omaha voted for It, but In
the count of the ballots, and by the free and eaay
system of handling the ballots aa obtained at that
time, the ballot box had bean manipulated by a few
disreputable ward heelers and tha return were
made to show that tha proposition waa defeated by
leaa than 100 votea.
"Yet smdtacouraged and undaunted, 'the paper
which he UMlahed. Inoeaaantly In season and out
of season, sad at time without aid or assistance
from any source, persisted In the fight, until victory
finally perched where it justly belongs. In the edi
torial aanotum of The Bee."
As here Intimated, it waa plain all the time that
consolidation wma eventually Inevitable aa a step In
th upbuilding of Greater Omaha, and that the longer
It was deferred the more costly It would be to all con-eerneO-whloh
will soon be mora fully realised by
many people, who wUl then wonder why . they did not
wake up to the fact and help put It over long before.
Members of tha Rotary clvb were not long ago
asked for opinions aa to what that organisation could
and should do to supplement Its activities and make
itself more useful to the community. It had already
joined in promoting the garden rontent, and had held
out a helping hand to local charitable Institution. I'
gave President Welter a suggestion for a more con
centrated effort for beautifying the city. XV have a
fine example of Individual Initiative In what la knovn
as "Tha Prettiest Mile" out on the north boulevard,
and I believe that with properly directed energy aa
equally magnificent showing could be made by taking
a stretch of tha Lincoln Highway going through th
residence districts of Omaha and out through the
suburbs, and providing? for Its uniform treatment from
tha standpoint of landacape gardening. This would
have to btf brought about by associating for the pur
pose the owner of the abutting property with a
measure of assistance from the city authorities and
Interested civio bodies. The merchants of the "600"
blook Inaugurated an enterprise of thla kind along
business line by contributing a common fund for
ornamental Illumination and street cleaning, and In
the same way tmiah better results eould be scoured
for embellishing yards, putting In flower and shrub
bery, matching op shad tree In parkway and keep
ing Itwnt In trim, by having th work dona under a
single supervisor directing a orew of gardener than
by each person looking after hie own premises In tils
own way and at hi own time.
Tbe chief obstacles always met with hr in
Omaha in any plan of city beautifying have eome
from the vacant Iota, and from the occasional moss-
back who will not do anything himself nor help anr
on elae do It. In any auch schema, therefor, It must
be expected that some who ought to do their shares
will either wantonly refute or have perhaps some
legitimate exouae for .holding" back. This is where
the publla authorities and outside asslatano would be
necessary to carry the project through. The city
could furnish' th superintendence, and th improve
ment clubs or business leagues could par the assess
ment for the vacant lot; th Rotary elub eouid put
In a flower bed wheal, th Elks a B. P. O. B. clock,
Ak-SarBen a replloa of Its current years' Insignia,
etc. at tha conspicuous points; and being an tha ma'n
highway of auto touriat travel, evaryon would aea

It mar be to lata tor practical execution this year.

But Ma Just makea him vut te be a man
