KEEPING AMERICA SOLVENT.
With the tame loose administration of public ac
counts and affairs that exists in Europe, the condi
tion of the United States would not be as favorable
aa it now is. If notable economies and reforms had
not been put into effect under President Harding
this country might have been in the same sort of
mess that afflicts so many other states, great and
Senator Medill McCormick has added up the sav
ings to taxpayera accomplished during the republican
tenure of office and sets the figure at $7,000,000,
000. This is no small burden lifted from the shoul
der of the people. It is not too much to say that it
represents the difference between national bank
ruptcy such as afflicts France, Italy and the other
debtor nations, and our present condition of gradual
Establishment of the federal budget system under
Charles G. Dawes was one of the first steps toward
economy. Paring appropriations for the army and
navy and the discharge of surplus government em
ployes followed. There are many further moves
under consideration, among them the reorganization
of government departments.
Every American . should be gratified by con
templation of the summing up by Senator McCor
mick. The record, as yet incomplete, of businesslike
administration of national affairs reflects credit on
the republican party and should go far toward its
success in the coming elections.
that; they claimed to rule by divine right and they
got away with it. That time is past. In sport, as in
other things, the gam must be played by the rules
FOR THE CHILDREN'S WORLD.
A great gathering worthy of public attention was
that of the International Sunday school convention in
Kansas City. What could be more important to the
progress of the humari race than that each oncoming
generation should be imbued with high principles
A nation's ideals and institutions may be changed
in a generation, as was evidenced in Germany
and Japan, and in such movements as prohibition
and woman suffrage in America," said Rev. Jesse
M. Bader of St. Louis at one of the sessions of the
convention. "We have our opportunity with the
young people of today. There is talk of world peace,
but we must first teach a generation to love peace
and to hate war before universal peace is possible."
"You can cripple a child physically for life, be
fore it is 3 years old," Mrs. Maud Junkin Baldwin
added. "You can give a mental thought to that child
before it is 6 years old and it will carry it through
life. I sometimes look at the modern girl and boy
of the flapper and cake-eater age, and pity them.
This generation made them what they are. This
generation created the atmosphere about them."
As is natural, a strong appeal for the physical as.
well as the spiritual welfare of the children was
heard. "The sweat shops, the rice fields in Japan,
our own American factories and other institutions
that employ children to perform hard labor through
out the long hours of the day these are heart
breaking," said Mrs. M. S. Lamoreaus of Chicago,
and Margaret Slattery of Boston, the Rev. Charles
Stelzle of New York and others referred to the place
of humanity and democracy in religious teaching.
And what a trust it is, to rear or instruct even
one of the next generation. In so many ways the
present age has taken to wrong paths. Not a great
deal can be done with us, but hope for our children's
world is never lost. .
A CRIME THAT CAN'T BE BURIED.
Williamson county, Illinois, at last has buried its
dead the sixteen mangled bodies that evidence what
human beings can do when the beast becomes domi
nant, when the veneer of centuries of civilization is
swept aside by a passion of fury that makes men
into frenzied, unthinking, unheeding brutes.
These bodies were dumped into th potter's field,
unnamed, unsung, unpralsed. No mark of identifica
tion was allowed upon the pin headpieces marking
the graves. As so many animals these men were
slaughtered and at such they were burled.
It was not a pretty picture that Williamson: county
gave to the world last Thursday, when it turned it
self into an inferno of hate and death. H is a pic
ture still worse that! it shows in this continued hate
which follows its victims not merely to death but
beyond, which mutilates their bodies, which jeers at
their wounds, which upholds their murder.
Men sometimes kill each other in blind rages,
and repent There is no repentance in Williamson
county. There is glorification of the crime. It will
not happen again, the officers of Williamson county
say, if the mines are kept closed. It will not happen
again, provided the men who rule by murder and
threat of murder have their way.
This is not American. It is not civilized. It is
the spirit of anarchy which knows no government.
It is not by this spirit that trades unionism
thrives. If this sort of inhumanity had controlled
men's hearts during the last fifty years there would
today be no trades unions. If this sort of thing had
prevailed during the last 150 years there would today
be no United States of America, .
Williamson county deserves a condemnation not
yet forthcoming. It deserves condemnation by of
ficials of trades unionism which will not only rebuke
but which will prevent a repetition of such an orgy
of death in the name of union labor. It deserves
condemnation by officials of the state of Illinois
which will not stop with words, but which will in
clude a searching investigation into the underlying
causes of this riot and which will provide a reorgan
ization of government' and human contacts suf
ficiently thorough to restore law and order.
A DOMESTIC TRAGEDY.
The heart of friend and foe alike goes out to
Governor Small of Illinois, whose wife lived only to
see him cleared of criminal charges and died in her
moment of rejoicing.
The tension of weeks of court proceedings passed
without breaking down either her faith or her will,
but the relief and excitement of the acquittal over
came her. So strange is the human functioning that
had her husband been found guilty of the charge of
diverting state funds she might have lived to fight
on for his final clearing. An emergency often calls
forth strength winch disappears with the necessity
that brought it up.
"Thank God she lived to see me vindicated," her
husband said in a touching statement "Yesterday
was one of the happiest days of her life." !
When men become figures in public life, they
seem to belong more to the people than to their own
families. The domestic side of their existence seldom
is thought of, and in the heat of political conflict
the human element is generally lost to sight. A
tragedy such as this will bring many closer to the
governor of Illinois, making him appear as a man in
stead of the impersonal representation of a political
A NEW SORT OF RUNNING MATE
Wife and husband are campaigning shoulder to
shoulder for the election of Mrs. Peter Olesen as sen
ator from Minnesota. Husband and wife likewise are
on the stump in Pennsylvania for the election of
Gifford Pinchot to the governorship. Office seeking
thus has become a family affair. If there is dignity
in heing the wife of a governor, is there any less in
-ccspying the position of husband to a senator?
If Mrs. Pinchot and Mr. Olesen were the candi
dates they could not be taking more interest in the
contest In fact, both are given credit for drumming
up a good many votes. Mrs. Pinchot recently ad
dressed 1,000 women at a dinner in Scranton. "It's
not going to be an easy job to clean up the mess
at Harrisburg, to put the administration of the state's
finances on a sound businesslike basis, to cut out
the waste, the graft, the inefficiency, to see that the
Workingmen and women of the state, for the first
time in many years, are given a square deal," she
Unquestionably the women voters of the com
monwealth will have the more confidence in Mr.
Pinchot because of the demonstrated ability of his
wife. Two heads are proverbially better than one.
Perhaps Mr. Olesen himself will not be without influ
ence in the councils of the nation.
A SPOILED BABE.
Mrs. Babe Ruth declares the public is not giving
her husband a square deal. It might be retorted
. that Babe is not giving the public a square deal.
Babe won a fame not frequently equalled in the
extreme adulation it excited among thousands of
Americans, not equalled Very often even in a world
of sport which is given much to worshiping its
heroes. They still watch his batting average with
interest, but it is as one watches a thermometer reg
ister the heat of the day. The glamor is gone; the
"punch" has disappeared. Babe Ruth is still a swat
machine, but he isn't an idol any more.
There is some reason for this. The public, once
it has set up an idol, doesnt' dash it to the ground
without some cause. Sometimes the public's punish
ment exceeds what the offense deserves, but always
omewhere there is a cause.
In Babe's case, the cause is his own enlarged hat
fcand. Babe Ruth became too big for tfce game that
mad him. He thought he was making the game.
Whea the rule didn't suit him, he made his own
rnloa. There was a time when a few men could do
FOR THE SAFETY OF OMAHA.
Omaha needs the police booth patrol system. It
needs it for the protection not only of property but of
life. It needs it in order to meet the increased and
increasing danger of criminal minds, equipped with
agencies of destruction and escape which have im
proved while the police system of counter activity
has stood still.
The need has existed for months. Heretofore it
has not been met because the city commission pro
fessed inability to provide the necessary funds. That
excuse will suffice no longer. The commission is to
make its 1923 tax levy within the next three weeks.
It can provide for this in its budget, if it will.
The police booth pati'ol system is simplicity itself.
It merely provides for the establishment of booths in
the residential sections, so located that no part of
the city is more than one mile from such a station.
These booths are manned by policemen equipped with
motorcycles and they are at the call of the central
station to respond to emergency at a moment's notice.
The first five minutes after the commission of a
crime are the important minutes. The criminal who,
with a fast automobile, can put ten miles behind him
before police officers take his trail has won more than
ten miles. He has won open country, ample oppor
tunity to hide, double back or throw off pursuit in
any one of many ways.
We protect our property from fire by twenty-three
stations, located at points from which every part of
the city is readily accessible; within the year, money
has been appropriated for additional stations. We
protect our lives by depending upon two stations,
from which parts of the city are six miles distant.
We have 807 men to save us from fire. We have
only 242 men to save us from burglars and highway
men and murderers. The one may cost usvinoney;
the other, as has been proved with startling fre
quency in the last few months in Omaha, may cost
us the Jives of ourselves or our dearest ones.
"The criminal has progressed. He has adopted
modern invention to his foul purpose. The motor
car has increased his possibility of escape a dozen
fold, and by that has added tremendously to his dar
ing and courage. The fear of capture and punish
ment the one deterrent other .than conscience to
the commission of crime is missing.. .......
We must put an end to the "clean getaway."
Those words must be eliminated from the vocabulary
of criminal and police alike.
The police patrol booth system will help do it.
It seems rather foolish to talk of militarism in the
United States when the size of the army has been
set at 125,000 enlisted men. Compare the Greek or
Polish army of 300,000, and France's 880,000.
The Philippines consist of 7,083 islands, with a
land area equal to Pennsylvania, New York, .New
Jersey and Delaware, and a population of 11,000,000.
Rather more people and more land than one would
Congressman Fordney has refused to run for con
gress again, which ought to moderate the tone of
those partisans who are attacking him.
If Marconi can conquer static, all his other
achievements might be forgotten and still he would
be hailed as radio's greatest man.
There is, so to speak, a good deal that is striking
in the present industrial situation.

The Ballot Bo "Strike."
Havelock. Neb., June 26. To the
Editor of The Bee: The communica
tion signed by G. H. Abel for the
Havelock local federation meets my
heartiest approval. We farmer In
the vicinity .of Havelock will srladlv
Join hands with the Havelock shop
men when they strike on July 1. We
may ne ama to find work for the
most of them a good share of the
time, but in any event we can al
wavg find aomethlng for them to eat.
Generally apeaking. I am opposed
to strikes and the deprivations and
suffering which usually attend ttfem,
but Mr. Abel In his concluding para
graph hints at one form of "strike"
which I can certainly approve the
strike at the ballot box. So at this
particular time I can endorse the
strike coming July 1, and the later
one coming July IS and again on
Notwithstanding Home very emi
nent editors have scouted the Idea
that the laboring man and the farm
er can Join hands politically, saying
It Is similar to trying to mix oil and
water, yet the fact remains that the
interests of the two classes' are
fundamentally alike, even though
the farmer wants a high price for
his wheat while the laborer wants
cheap bread. For out of every dol
lar the working man pays for bread
the farmer gets 37 cents and the
other 62 cents goes to the fellows
who are so sure oil and water won't
mix that is to say, the "big boys"
and their satellites. I use the term
"bread" to include the ordinary
necessities of life food, shelter,
clothing, etc. and npt bread alone.
For example, the grower of cab
bage in Texas gets $8 a ton for his
product, while the Havelock shop
man pays at the rate of $225 per
ton. The other $21T goes to the
middlemen who are morally certain
that the interests of the farmer and
laboring man are diametrically op
posed. I am quite sure, Mr. Abel, that
your fellow laborers and we farmers
can well afford to "exchange Ideas
after supper when the chores are
done," and I know that we can
reach the conclusion you have hinted
at that "we might decide to go to
the polls and vote together for our
own interests." That is one kind of
strike the "big boys" fear most of all.
It is more than likely that the
higher railroad officials will secretly
welcome the strike of July 1 as a
step toward crushing the unions.
The roads have been reaping a rich
harvest recently the Burlington
took $70,000,000 out of Nebraska
last year and the Union Pacific $35,
000,000 and yet wages of the em
ployes were cut several times, and
farmers and business men were
made bankrupt by the exorbitant
freight rates. The strike will cause
so much suffering and inconvenience
and loss of property that the un
informed public at large will most
likely turn against the strikers and
place the blame upon them.
And yet the cause of the strikers
is eminently just. Twenty-three
cents an hour is the munificent wage
awarded maintenance men by the
railroad labor board, which holds
that this is a "Just and reasonable"
wage one which gives the lucky la
borer $563 a year on which to sup
port himself and family, provided
he has not sickness and loses no
time. Half a million men are af
fected by this award and practical
ly all of them voted to strike. And
why shouldn't they?
More and more I am impressed
by the wisdom of the position taken
by Judse Arthur G. Wray, that we
must finally come to government
ownership of the means of trans
portation and communication. Be
cause of garbled accounts given by a
press hostile to government owner
ship, our experience during the re
cent war is held up as a horrible
example of getting away from pri
vate ownership. But what are the
In 2 months of federal control
the total deficit was $1,200,200,000,
and this includes the shortage after
paying the roads an annual rental
of $906,000,000. The deficit was less
than $50,000,000 per month, and at
a time when the war had put an un
usual strain upon the business of
transportation. During the first six
months of private operation, with
the Cummins-Esch guarantee back
of the roads, the deficit was nearly
$750,000,000, or nearly $125,000,000
per month. These are figures com
piled and made public by the Inter
state Commerce commission. At that
time many claims had not yet been
paid and it is likely that the first six
months of private operation of the
railroads will cost the people of the
United States over and above the
freight rates they pay nearly as
much as the whole 26 months of
federal control. So much for that.
More than three years ago, in an
article touching upon conditions then
existing. I concluded with a para
graph which I now quote for the
benefit of the "big boys and I
ask them to sit up and listen:
'"If we are willing to let the bulk
of the manual workers of this coun
try peaceably retain the prestige and
privileges which the war has given
them if we ate willing to run the
country in the Interest of the pro
ducers of property rather than the
inheritors of property, then we can
head off disaster. If, however, the
financial and business interests of
the United State and allied nations
attempt to return to prewar eco
nomic conditions, then surely there
will follow an explosion."
