A BETTER UNDERSTANDING
There lia.s been r-onsiderablt? dis
cussion jit late ;is tt ways of estab
lishing a better understanding be
tween the white and the yellow races.
Conunissions have been appointed to
ork toward this end; statesmen
have given it their best thought and
much j-'ood had been accomplished.
In regard to these elfoits there re
cently incurred an episode that will
14 o far toward hrinjjin.i; about such
an uncUrstaamlini;. Historical com
mentate rs wiil probably make no
note of it, but it was si.uniikanl nev
ertheless. The affair referred to was
the physical encounter , anions mem
bers of the Japanese parliament dur
in a session held early this week.
Charges of oilicial misconduct had
been preferred, and accused and ac
cusers proceeded to argue the mat
ter with fisticufiV. Fists had there
tofore been considered as weapons
belonging; somewhat exclusively to
t!ie white man. Toison'or the swift
dagger or the1 treacherous arrow, or
an impenetrable stocisni were sup
posed t lie the proper weapons for
fave for the sett Jr.?:. The Japanese
episode might have occurred any
where in a white man's country. It
miiilit have occurred in a village
board meeting, or in the Oi.iaha coun
cil chamber, or the Douglas county
district court, or even in the United
States senate chamber in fact.siin-
, uar happenings in these bodies are
ia matter of record. Certainly the
'affair might have happened in the
! parliament of the newly formed Irish
republic, but no one thought it could
: happen in the- orient the land of
! calm serenity. But it seems that
. male human beings, at all, times and
I in all climes, when -siiiariin. under
! a deep personal grievance, have had
;a very human desire to. fe tch blood
from some one's nose,
j Anyhow, tlfV trick has been turned,
i A better understandiusr has been e--
la,llissliei between the white and the
yellow race. Henceforth every Amer
ican politicianand every American
is a potential politician will feel
closer to those little Japanese law
A STRIKE FOR HIGH PRICES ?
Many prite;sts haic been made of
late against frivolous and vexatious
strikes on the part of work ingmen.
So much inconvenience has been
caused by these v;::':euts that it has
been se-riously proposed to limit the
right to strike, and Kansas already
has such a law whi h it is attempt
ing to enforce. If it is a punishable
offense for labor-to throw down its
tools, how are we to deal with the
employer win, acting in the same
spirit, closes his shop?
The American Woolen company,
which ha.- shut down mo t of its
mills. 'is In politics as well as in busi
ness. Its industry is founded on the
protective tariff, and its political
faith has always been that of the
party whose first object is to safe
guard and enrich big business. The
prese-nt suspension r t operations is
explained by an alleged cancellation
i f orders for cloth, but me-n in the
trade deny that such is the fact, and
already associations e.f producers of
clothing for men and women are an-
nounciiig higher retail price's for thejed to her last long rest. The burial
fall and winter and justifying them
on the ground that the sunnlv of
woolens is to be sh'ort.
Practically every iliscu-vion of
reta'-dies for high prices e nds with a
demand for incre-aseel production.
P.esidcs the complaint against strikes,
it has been h-ld that labor is dila
tory and that, notwithstanding gen
erous wages, its product has elimin-i-hed.
This is the grievance of such
manufae-.turers as have been accused
of profiteering, although no proof of
it is found in the-ir bks or in the
excessive dividends they have been
earning. One thir.fr, however, is
plain. A labor strike does not. nec
essarily stop production. A strike
by capital is eertain to elo so.
The American Woeden company es-
j raped prosecution net long. ago by a
judicial ruling that cloth is not
clothing in the meaning of the Lever
iact. On this technicality a case care-
; fully prepared by tht? department of
.justice came to naught. There Is
, an intimation that the New England
shutdown, throwing tens of thou-
sands of people- out or work, was
.vengeful in its inspiration anei m-
j tended as a w arning agairst further
'. Interference. Perhaps a more pow-

allcred by the American Designers'
association, which' is to create a
scarcity and thus check, the tendency
everywhere manifested of lato to re
duce the cost of clothing.
Such a policy would come properly
under the head of a conspiracy
a gainst the public. We have had
several outlaw labor strikes that is,
strikes entered upon in violation eif
contracts and union rules aW with
out any well-defined purpose. If the
American Woolen company's shut
down. is intended to intimidate the
government and perpetuate extor
tion, it also is an outlaw strike. The
people are t he "principal victims. The
1 xked-out mill operatives may find
work at big wages elsewhere, but
with a prearranged scarcity of cloth
the consumer will pay the m v levy
or practice self-denial. Xew York

FAIR PLAY FOR MR. WILSON
Is it too much to hope that Presi
dent Wilsein may now get fairer
treatment from his political oppo
nents? lie will have bul eight
months more in ollice. During that
period would, it not be decent to let
up 'll the ferocity of attacks upon
him?' No one will ask republicans
to like him personally or to approve
of him politically. Let them cherish
to the ir heart's content their private
hate of the mau and their intense
hostility to the policies of the presi
dent. I!ut he is chief magistrate of
the United States. He has for near
ly a year been lighting for his life
i:i the grip of a dangerous illness,
lie has borne his suffering without
complaint, yet during that time the
public attitude of his enemies to
ward him has. been brutal in the ex
treme. Isn't it time for a diiTerent feeling
to show itself? Mr. Wilson's work
is' virtually done. Kve:i if it be
thought to be ending in bitter dis
appointment, he is entitled to the
consideration due not only tei his of
fice but tt a tragic figure. Let no
one think that his clear mind was
not aware of what was eotning. Mr.
Creel has jut published .words
which the president uttered on his
way home from France:
"It is to America that the whole
world turns today, not only with
its wrongs, but with its hopes and
grievances. The- hungry txpe'Ct u :
to feetl them, "the roofless look to
us lor shelter, the sick of heart and
body elepend upon us ftr cure. All
of these expectations have in them
the quality of terrib'e urgency.
There must be no delay.
"It has been so always. People
will endure their tyrants for years,
but they tear their deliverers to
pieces if a millennium is not creat
ed immediately. Yet you know
that tliese ancient .wrenigs, these
present tinhappir.esses, are not to
he remedied in a day or with a
waive of the hand.
"What I seem to see with all my
heart I hope that I am wrong is a
tragedy of disappoint nfe-nt."
If any do pot perceive in this both
clairvoyance and dignity, there i-; no
use in arguing the point with them.
Hut frem now on the president de
serves, if not kindly treatment, at
least decent, consideration and fair
play. Xew York Times.

While recently looking over some
hoarded relics I found among them
the enclose,! menu of a game supper
given on October oO. 1S75 under the
auspices of the I'lattsniouth Sports

at that time and e)f which I was a

a half century ago I decided it might
be an item of interest to those of
your readers who were, at that time
conversant with parsing events in

any existing members eif the club
who may see the item. The menu

For men who fudge a cigarette by its looks,

choicest Oriental and American tobaccos
brings out to the full that good tobacco

crimped (not pasted) makes an easier
