A serious situation menaces the

is near, and not enough coal in
sight to keep people warm. Govern

get coal - to every community, but
the fact is that in this hour there
are many towns in Nebraska with
out adequate supply of coal.
Who is responsible for this ser
ious situation? It is difficult to put
a finger on the real criminals. But
everybody knows that for years the
giant combination of coal operators.
working in harmony with the rail
road interests has been able to cori

nobody ever heard of a coal baron
going to jail. His person and his

It would be difficult to overesti
mate the important of the labors of
gifted artists whose services have
been drafted in the task of arous
ing the patriotism of the nation in
supporting the Liberty loan.
It is for the artist to seize upon
the theme and develop it in, a thou
sand different ways. He must be
true to truth, yet from the vast ar-
ray of materials he must extract the
elements that continually press
home the impelling idea. These he
draws from the home and hearth-
stone, from the office or from the
fields, makintr each and all con-
verge on the central idea and show
ing how they are all indissolubly
linked up with the principles now
in jeopardy and for the defense and
preservation of which the nation is
marshaling its forces.
As the situation is thus present
ed it becomes obvious that however
brilliant his gifts only a patriotic
artist can devise a natrinti nntor

common goal. Wherever the thought
of this unity of purpose is adequately
caught by the artists of today the
instinctive recognition of the nennle

If a man comes to this country to
live under its protection, to labor
under its security, to bring up a
family under its privileges. why
should he in this country's cause not
fight foe, even his own kith and kin?

ine uerman Kaiser, addressing his
recruits, once said that at his com
aand they, must shoot down father
I . -
or mother, sister or brother. Surely
no kaiserite amongst us will pre -
J sume to dispute the kaiser. If ob-
j ligation to country Is -superior to
I blood-ties in Germany, that obliga-
.1 i
I tion here is superior to cast-off al-
J leglances and personal sentiment.
I A man may not be able to govern
J his sentiment, but duty is superior
I to sentiment. So George H. Thomas,
I thmieht whpn he titrnpd ae-aimst hlo'
thought when he turned against his'
native" Virginia and stood by the
union. So did many a man in our
civil war, "who had brother or uncle
or nephew, or even father or son
opposing him. They didn't snivel
either, those true men didn't. Their
hearts might bleed, but they did
their duty.
These Americans here who prefer
their German sentiment to their
American allegiance, can show that
they are men by frankly surrender
ing their American property and
forswearing their American alleg
iance. We might Consider them
mistaken,- but we could not deny
their courage. But the man who
will take from America her bene
fits and refuse to fulfill his obligaT
tions, acts a despicable part. If one
of our citizens is a German at heart.
let him have the sincerity to stand
up to be counted for what he is
Any indulgence of this weakness
by our government would be partial
ity. Is the true American to pro-
tect with his body the life and propr
leriy 01 a man wno is an enemy at
heart? Has a man any business in
the country who is potentially a
traitor to her? Is any citizen worth
the trouble to protect him, who sub-
ordinates his duty to America to his
European sentiment? Do we want
men here who do not believe in the
liberty they enjoy but adhere to the
autocracy they have escaped?
In his heart of hearts there is no
man who does not prefer to be a free
man rather than a subject. These
Germans here who were born Prus
sian chattels prefer their privilege
as American citiens. The trouble
with a few of them is that they want
to retain the privilege, while letting
others protect it. If they do not
care to protect it, let them surrender
