The trouble with Colonel Roose
velt is simply that his advice ha3
been turned down and the advice of
experienced soldiers taken. The
lieutenant colonel who escaped ig
nominiou3 defeat solely because i
distance, has labored under the de
lusion that he would be a perfectly
good understudy for Mars if only
given a chance. Fortunately for
the soldiers they have not been re
quired to give their training, their
health and their comfort into the
keeping of an amateur soldier, whose
military service is brief and whose
military record is mostly bluff.

Mr. Bentley, boyhood crony of La

moral were not so spirited and so

HAS GOT ENOUGH.
Hon. George W. Norris sends us
a nice letter and a few copies of
speeches in which he evidently wish
es to impress us with the fact that
he fought hard to assess the taxes
for this war, on capital. There is
only one way Norris can ever get
an audience with us again, and that
would be to hog tie us and make us
listen to him. Instead of rising to
the level of a statesman la3t winter
when his actions meant so much, he
chose to play on the emotions of
individuals at home, and by his ac
tions endeared himself to every ene
my of this country. All that he
may do in all or the years that
stretch ahead of us will never wijpe
that blot from his record. He can
not talk loud enough or long enough
to make reparation for that wrong,
and for that reason we have no fur
ther use for George W. Norris. That
doesn't mean that he could not bo

with conditions remaining as they
were he could harvest a bigger batch

voting in his mind to oppose the
war than he could to follow the
dictates of common decency and up
hold the hands of his president.
Fear of what the consequences might
be to them personally is what keep-J
the mouths of a whole lot of people
shut. And if they can reward a
champion of their treasonable
thoughts through the secret ballot,
when the time comes they may be
expected to' do it. The fire under
this wonderful "melting pot," of
which we like to rhapsodize, has
burned low.Clarks- Enterprise.
A DEMOCRATIC PRIVILEGE.
One of the rights guaranteed to
an offender in the United States is
trial by a' jury of his peers, and
"peers" means citizens of this coun
try. It is comforting to know that any
charges tiiat may be preferred
against members of the I. W. W.,
disloyal pacifists and others who
may try to be un-American must be
weighed before a jury.
It is better thus, for it is not only
a guaranty of approximate justice
to the accused, but is also somewhat
more certain of satisfactory results
than would be a trial to a court.
For judges are susceptible to the
lure of politics. Individual officials
too often think of the effect an ofli-
cial act may have with reference to
the getting or alienation of votes
than does a collective body of citi
zens like a jury.
And we have been remiss as citi
zens and loyalists. By not assur
ing the upright judge of the uni
versal support of upright people we
have permitted judges to be intim
idated by the corrupt and criminal
Any judge who would sturdily in
stst upon the punishment of a dis
loyal person nowadays would be
courting, and would probably re
ceive, the hostiel opposition of the
disloyal classes, and loyal citizens
would permit themselves to be divid
ed by partisanism or factionalism.
affording the criminal classes power
to punish a judge who had the
temerity to impose punishment upon
In other words those whose im
pulses are upright do not stand to
gether at critical moments as a
force with which to defeat those
whose impulses and acts are wrong
That is why a jury seems more
apt to rebuke disloyalty than an in
dividual judge might be. It is de
mocracy on both sides. Lincoln
GEEMANY'S IDEA OF
FREEDOM OF THE SEAS
Ever since the war started, the
Germans, parroted by the Austrians,
ir.ve been prating over that totally
ogus issue, freedom of the seas.
In their replies to the pope's last
peace note they dwelt upon it with
he usual crafty insistence.
Sober-thinking people of Iowa
have been puzzled. So far as they
could figure, there had bfen noth-
ng but freedom of the seas before
his gigantic war.
Nobody ever heard the seas were
anything else than free very much
freer than life in Germany aud Aus-
ria. ro one even attempted to de
prive the Teuton empires of the
freedom of the seas.
German ' ships plied in every
ocean, competing with British and
merican goods in every market.
The kaiser went steadily ahead with
a big war navy. England did not
even erect a tariff wall against
There was nothing the Germans
could legitimately ask for that was
not freely accorded them every
where in the world. The one thing
that excited their wrath and fear
was the continuing might of the
British navy. They also did not
like to see our own navy keeping
abreast of the times. But they
knew that neither of these navies
was a mewiace to any legitimate Ger
England, an island country, was
forced to maintain supremacy at sea
or jarvo the moment an enemy de
clared war. The United States, for
the protection of her costs and the
maintenance of the Monroe Doc
trine, was also bound to have a
And it was precisely these things
that irked the Prussian war masters.
They knew a British navy stood be
tween them and their hopes to
bring England to her knees. They
knew our American navy, if prop
erly developed, would stand between
them and their greedy designs up
on South and Central America.
They do not want to be thus balk
ed in the future. Thoy want, if
possible, to trap the allies into some
kind of disarmament scheme that
would mean an inferior navy for
England and a similar one for
America. Then Germany could
pursue her evil and sinister plans
unhindered. The Pan-German week
ly organ "Das Groessre Deutsch
land" (The Greater Germany) drops
the mask by printing an article by
Winand Engel which it approves. In
this Engcl says:
"German policy is forced to make
secure for itself by all conceivable
means domination over the world

sion 'domination over the world sea.'

day. The latter expression is either
dishonest or stupid. The Eea is free
for us only if we dominate it."
There is the truth about the Ger
man canting phrases in a nutshell.
When the German and the American
kaisers unctuously reply to the pope
that they desire the freedom of the
seas, they are either dishonest or
stupid. In the present instance,
they are plainly dishonest. They
are lying once more, just as they
have lied so often during the course
of this war.
They want German domination of
the seas, not freedom of the seas.
And when they gain domination
of tlie seas, they will have all but
conquered the world. Remember
