The Episcopalians are the first of the church bodies in this country to complete the minimum sum needed as an endowment fund to sustain a pension system for aged and infirm clergymen. Last Sunday country-wide pledges carried the fund well over $5,000,000, bringing to a gratifying close a movement conducted with business-like efficiency by Bishop Lawrence of Massachusetts. Under the proposed pension system clergymen re tired for age or ill-health receiv a fixed per centage of their total salary, the amount increas ing in proportion to length of service. . Other denominations are pressing for com pletion of like pension funds. The Methodists propose an endowment of $15,000,000, of which about one-half is subscribed. Presbyterians re port three-fifths of their $10,000,000 fund in tight; the Congregationalists are raising $3,000,000 arid the Baptists $2,000,000. These sums Impose no great burden on the membership of the churches interested. : They have grown and prospered with he country and extended their activities in many directions. It is a notorious fact that very . few of the. clergy , share, in material prosperity. Many and varied are the calls on their meager stipends, and heart and vocation alike forbid re fusal in worthy eases., Personally unable to make provision for the Inevitable 'waning5 years or for shattered health, that -duty properly becomes the first obligation of thecliUitli, There is no reason l,to doubt that the membership, properly impressed with its duty, will rue to the occasion and fulfill the obligation. ,' , . Omaha's Automobile Show. " On tomorrow the automobile dealers of Omaha will open their twelfth annual ihow, in viting inspection of the cars and providing most substantial proof of progress made in the twelve month since the last exposition of the kind. This event is one of the really important incidents in the city's program of the year. From whstever angle it may be viewed, the automobile industry is impressive. That it has sprung from nothing to a business of more than a billion dollars an nually since the beginning of the century is not the least marvelous feature of the world's his tory. This astounding growth is due to the serv iceability of the self-propelled vehicle, and its facile adaptability for all uses. To enumerate the types and purposes of the various makes would be to emulate Homer's catalogue 'of the ships. No requirement of business or industry goet unprovided for by the automobile builder. Omaha's share in the marvelous business has been great, and is destined to be grester. Enter prising men, quick to see an opportunity, found here unusual advantages for the sale and distribu tion of their output, and today the automobile trade is one of the chief fsctors in the city's life. Thousands of cars are sold here each year, and the business is steadily expanding. Established firms are increasing their capacity, and new ones are pushing in, while the demand for the ma chine! is keeping just a little bit ahead of the ability to furnish cars. , ' , The promise of the show this week is expan sive, for it is set out thst every type of car and every known and classified accessory or bit of equipment is to be on display. This ought to make such an attractive display that the Audi torium wilt be crowded with interested visitors all the time. At any rate, no city can fail that has so many energetic men engaged in pushing its trade and extending its influence as are devoting their time to the automobile Industry here. Art at the Theater. Mr. Stuart Walker is reaping golden reward for the faith he had in the belief that the Ameri can public still is willing to pstronlie the theater at which only art in its better sense is set forth. His years of preparation for his present work were spent in the very hottest center of the com mercialized theater, and the successes he noted were those that were made with only the box office in view. . From this school he sallied forth, the apostle of a message, and with an idea that gave him no rest. New York, Chicago and other centers of population have welcomed him, and the success his venture has met almost convinces the observer that the American public is witling to give attention to a player whose appeal rests on the actor's art and not on the scene buildy's craft The Drama League of America has in con siderable degree revived the waning light of the stage, and thus has served beyond its expecta tions. Perhaps It is too soon for the full rein statement of the theater in its rightful place In our social scheme, but "The Gods of the Moun tain" inspire the hope thst all the people who have crowded to see Mr. Walkenjs Portmanteau Theater are not draWn thither merely inspect a novelty. Not a Good Comparison. Many times in recent years have we been told that the American republic is traveling the same road to 'the certain destruction that overtook the Roman republic, ! Certain features of national life teem to suggest parallels that invite comparison and the dolorous conclusion that unless we mend our ways we wilt forfeit our liberty and end our days as did the Romans, under the despotic rule of imperial tyrants. This resemblance is on the surface only. If the discouraged brethren will dig a little deeper they will find such a difference in the genius and the ideals of the two republics as may comfort and encourage them. Perhaps the nearest approach between the his tory of Rome and the experience of the United States is the decay of the military spirit that came with prosperity. Romans fought not only to preserve their country, but to extend its -dominion. With power came affluence and love of luxurious ease, and a disinclination to serve as soldiers, until, as the end of the empire ap proached under Constantine, we find the Roman citizens singing, "I did not raise my boy to be ' a soldier," while the populace, fed by the bounty of the emperor, applauded. In seeking to enjoy without wisely providing to protect their pros perity, the Romans went down to ruin. . This it the chief lesson America has to learn from the history of Rome. Decadence incident to idleness produced its lawful effect. Our repub lic is founded on a conception of human rights unknown to Rome, its Institutions and its per manence resting on the equality of its citizenry. Its life comprises barely an eighth of the span compassed by the Romans in their growth, gran deur and decline. In that time it has accomp lished more of real good for humanity than Rome did in its thousand years, and . its mission , is scarcely more than entered upon, Proper devo tion to that mission requires more than lip serv ice from all citizens. Rank of Our State University. A late bulletin from the federal bureau of edu cation presents in compact form an informing variety of educational statistics compiled from reports of state universities and state colleges for the year ended June 30, 1916. They cover teach ing staffs and salaries, student enrollment, in come and endowments, property, and equipment values and some changes in study courses of ninety-one state-controlled schools tf higher edu cation. It may be noted at the outset, M a sign of the times, that fifty-eight of the ninety-one Institutions embraced in the bulletin maintained military dritt, and the Oregon university joined the number, this year. . Nebraska university re ported 772 students in military drill, ranking fif teenth m number enrolled. In all but one respect the state university makes an excellent compara tive showing in the tables. The teaching staff of 267 ranks ninth in the Jist, while the student enrollment of 4,826 Is exceeded by only seven other state-owned institutions The university's working income of $1,417,208 for that year ranks tenth. It stands eleventh in value of grounds, Including farm, fourteenth in value of buildings, and eighteenth in value of scientific equipment, machinery and library. The latter rank is open to improvement. - The average, however, affords gratifying proof of the university's progress and standing in the educational new world,' The Omaha Commercial club has raised the membership mark to 2,500. Ak-Sar-Ben hat passed that line more than once and there is -no good reason why the Commercial club should not alto do it. Let everybody join who draws divi dends out of Omaha's business prosperity! Itr Vlntof Boorwofrr ASA RESULT of this last week's fire. ii. Omaha's business district shows the big gest hole that has been burned in it for a Ions time and the rebuilding-, as it comes about is sure to make a most marked change in the city's topography a'.d aspect. In the very early days the block froi- fourteenth to Fifteenth fac ing Douglas str'-st, , was an aggregation of wooden stores and irame shacks, the first brick building being on the second lot from the east corner, probably Dart of it still remaining, me Fourteenth street come.- was occ'uied by a big barn-like building housing a drug store, sup planted later bv the brick structure in which J. A. Fuller conducted his drug business. There was a hardware store to the west run by the Dukes and about the center of the block was Madame Hickman s famous Millinery Emporium, that set the styles in headgear for all the women or Omaha s most fashionable set of those days. Of course, there was a saloon or two, a resturant, and a few other shops, but no pretensions to architectural achievement even comparable with the uniform blocks on both Douglas and Farnam below fourteenth until the Continental fcuilding blossomed forth among the other acquisitions of our hrst Room period. When originally erected the Continental building was the pride 'of the city and with the fine buildings on the three other cor ners made Fifteenth and Douglas the real retail center of Omaha, which prestige it long held. It was just half way between the postoffice and the opera house and it was the focus of nearly every thing, especially the street corner meetings, circus parades, and carriage traffic, for let it be remem bered that Douglas was paved with smooth as phalt all the time, while the rough granite blocks on Farnam drove business away. I know, because an uncle of mine had an office in the Continental block, which I used to frequent when I wanted a preferred perch in a corner street window. My reference to "Captain Jack" Crawford, "the poet scout," has brought me a letter from some one who can speak about "Captain Jaqk" with au thority, because intimately associated with him in the early days of The Bee. The letter comes from John H. Pierce, now at Oakland, Cal., who signs himself again, "Ranger," as he did when he was the Bees correspondent. "Oakland, Cal., Feb. 20. My Dear Victor: It is customary to minimize the services of pub lic men and thereby the writer secures credit for showing how fame is but a cobweb. 'Cap tain Jack' Crawford, 'the poet scout,' is said to be dying and 'Senator'' Sorensen brushes away a long stretch of his years, devoted to removing the bars to civilization by the words, 'He has ever since been doinsr Chautauaua work.' "During that time Crawford fought every band of hostiles, and they were numerous, that killed, raided and destroyed in the southwest and at Fort Craig, N. M. He was not only chief of scouts, but he was the chief business man of the post, "There is not in the War department a shoulder strap to mark the chief of scouts, but ft is a title, like wagon master, recognized wherever the army uses either. Immediately following the Custer campaign against the Sioux, Captain Jack was where he could watch the hostiles, who had fled to Canada. . His headquarters were at Haraboo, B. C. When the Klondyke was opening to civilization the Alaska gold fields, Captain Jack was a pioneer there, "Sorensen is a noble Knight of Ak-Sar-Ben, and when he dies I hope no one will shorten his honorable record one item, and if they do I will be glad to arise and cry hold. Yours for the whole truth. "RANGER." Alt this is very interesting, but so far as I have yet heard, "Captain Jack" has not yet "kicked the bucket," and it would be a welcome irony of fate for him to pull himself together and come back at his biographers with the true story of his life. I am moved to wonder if folks nowadays still keep scrapbooks as repositories of things they read and want to keep and refer to again. The scrapbook habit ought to be inculcated in young folks for they can draw big dividends of pleasure and satisfaction out of it afterwards. For example of what I say, read this memorandum that was submitted to me not long ago by a friend en gaged in newspaper work, who evidently reads this column regularly : "There is a peculiar fascination in browsing through, old scrapbooks. Some time ago I was given a volume of newspaper and magazine clippings. The book was prepared by a woman who lived for many years in St. Louis and who died in Omaha a few years ago. It was only a few days ago that I took time to peruse the pages of this interesting book. "Glancing hurriedly through the pages, I noted some articles relating to the fate Robert G. Ingersoll, another article by Ouida, a ser mon by Rev. Dewitt Talmage and then I came upon an article from The Sunday Bee, under date line of Craig-y-Nos Castle, Ystradgyulais, South Wales, June 27, 1891, signed by Victor Rosewater. That article was pasted in the book more than a quarter of a century ago. "On another page is an illustrated article of 'Great Journalists,' including Joseph Medill, George W. Childs, Murat Halstead, Charles A. Dana and Henry Watterson. Which reminds me that one of the early assignments I had when beginning newspaper work was to meet Mr. Halstead at the Union depot one cold night, after the hour of midnight.. I recognized the distinguished newspaper man when he alighted 4 from the train, told him. I was from The Bee ' and then directed him to the Paxton hotel. He asked after the late Edward Rosewater, that I can recall, but I do not remember anything of . particular interest that he may have said in the way of an interview," , ' E People and Events It is said that John D. Rockefeller sends eggs' daily to the men guarding his Pocantico estate, but draws the line at free spud. ' Potatoes have reached the topnotch price of $8 a barrel in various parts of Maine and farriers occasionally trade a few barrels for limousines. ' . Of course there are no restraints in trade in food products. Still, a New York market dealer held back his oniona until he cleaned up $50,000. ' Holding hands isa form of social diversion strictly taboo in Pittsburgh hotel lobbies. A recent instance created such a stir that the man in the oase called a minister, had the knot tied on the spot and spurned an apology from the house. ' . '.

Bala and Cynwyd set the right pace for thrifty imitators. ..... New York and Vermont having agreed to dis agree on a division of taxes on the Hetty Green estate, the issue goes to the highest court. Testi mony given in lower courts shows that Mrs. Green used a variety of aliases at different resi dences in New York, Jersey City and Brooklyn and thus confounded beggars, peddlers and oth ers of that ilk. Under these conditions tax asses sors experienced great difficulty in securing an introduction to the feminine Croesus. Health Hint for the Day. It ia best to eat what Is necessary at meal times, but do not continually take smacks between meals; very few stomachs can stand that continual strain of being always on the move. One, Year Ago Today in the War. British advanced their trenches against Turks below Kut-el-Arnara. Auatrlans reported defeat of Italians and troops of Ess-ad Pasha near Dur aszo. German assaults at Verdun resulted In advance of from two to four miles over a front of twenty miles. In Omaha Thirty Yean Ago. Mr. and Mrs. O. Stevenson gave their little daughter, Ethel, a birthday party at which twenty-flvs boya and girls were present. At the Pattl opera Adam Morrell remarked: "Arditl's head is almost as bald as mine that Is, if such a thing is possible."' C. & Raymond Used up Pattl's diamonds, while Dr. Werue de serted his dental tools long enough to sit enraptured while Pattl was sinning admiring the beauty of the diva's teeth. Janitor Cooper of the exposition building announced that he would just as aoon hear John Prince sing his cuckoo Bona- to an accordion accom paniment as listen to "Galasei," while W. O. Albright stated that Pattl would make money if flhe would sell her diamonds and Invest In South Omaha property. Miss Jessie Millard gave a dinner party in honor of her guest, Mies Weber of Rock Island. Among those present were Misses Barber, Buatln., Knight, Allle Brown; Messrs. Muir, Horbaoh, F. Hamilton, John Clarke, Drake and J. H. Millard. Mr. and Mrs. w. S. CurtlB enter tained a small but convivial party at dinner in honor of their guest, Mrs. Stevens of St. Louis.
