President Ilurdmir is necking tho means to end th; strike of the miners In the bituminous coal fields, lie has patiently waited until tho operators and the men have l.cd ;imtli' opportunity to move of their own accord to bring :;n cud to a situation that is op jit.djivc and dangerous. For weeks no effort, so far as the public in advised, hits been made to adjust the ili.Tcrcnu . between the purties at interest. With ihu inning of July 1 the public i.-e warned ihat a i!ioitu;,'j of fuel supply and an advance in I riio.i impends; tho operators assure the consumers I hat all prcspects of cheaper coal have disappeared. Cn this bus's the buying public will have to make its calculations for the coming season. RegardU'es o! who is to bli'.me for the strike, and for th: stuaticn that has developed, the time has tome for the federal government to interpose its j:rc;it power to the protection of tho common rights of r.ll. In general terms, tho masses are in sympathy with the demands cf the men that they be well paid for dangerous work; also, tlis public is not in a mood ti iiuppd-.t the onerous exactions kid against the operators by the miners. Wrong on either side will moit disrpprovr.!. Yet tlicra must be a basis of approach. Each side thouid expect to t&ke a little less than its extreme !cmunJ. accepting a reasonable compromise, th'at the menace to induptry may "do removed. Compul sory arbitration is not desirable, nor is federal opera tion of the mines, yet when men stand obdurate and unyielding, insisting on having their own way, the government is justified in compelling them to move for the benefit of everybody. The president has not indicated what he may do, should he fail to compose the differences in the way of a settlement of the strike, but he has made it plain that he proposes to secure an early resumption of work in the coal mines. Coal is necessary to the happiness and prosperity of the country, for the miners as well as for others, and so the strike must be ended soon. GERMANS AND SELF-GOVERNMENT. One of the incidental features of the movement to revive monarchial government in Germany is that opponents of the republic appear to lie stronger in Bavaria and Saxony than in Prussia. Several rea sons may be ascribed for this, none of them govern ing, but any of them good. The Bavarians and Saxons at no time especially relished the domination of Prussia, under a constitu tion which made the king of Prussia ex-officio em peror of Germany. Should the empire be restored under the present conditions, it is quite within the range of probabilities that the king of Bavaria will become emperor of Germany. However, the Ger man people have evinced a capacity for managing their own affairs that promises well for, the per petuity of the republic. The assassination of Rathenau removed a strong man, but he might have been taken from office by a vote of the people or the Reichstag. His successor will come from the people, and the republic will go on. Monarchists will surely trouble Germany for a long time. From 1789 to 1870 France underwent the travail of changing governmental forms many times, but the republic finally was definitely set up, and has endured through political stress that has served to weld its elements closer together. . , Germans have a fair example there of what a strong people may do, and if they sacrifice the right of self-government at this time it will not be for want of precedent or of sympathetic support. PERPENDICULAR EXPLORATION. Within five or six blocks of the summit of Mount Everest the British expedition which for many months has been striving to climb this highest point on the earth's surface has had toturn back. With the conquest of the poles the possibilities of horizon tal exploration have been almost exhausted, and the goal of explorers is now in the perpendicular. ' The thinness of the atmosphere, heavy winds, snowstorms, cold and exhaustion defeated Capt. Geoffrey Bruce and the scientist George Finch, who with a Gurkha porter carrying oxygen tanks reached an altitude of 27,300 feet. The summit of the world's highest mountain yet has to bear the weight of the human foot. Higher altitudes than this have been reached by man, but not by climbing. Lieut. John A. Mac Ready rode in an airplane 40,800 feet above Dayton. His electrically heated suit of fur is hardly adaptable to mountain climbing. Thus far the elements have baffled not only the endurance but the ingenuity of man. The first party to reach the peak of Mount Everest will become as famous as the discoverers of the north and south poles. IP PARTY LINES ARE ERASED. Whilo tax reduction continue! to bt the principal plank in th platform of practically every candldata for every public office, the Nonpartisan league and others are actively supporting movement to wipe the party circle off tho state ballot. Thty would apply to all state offices th system now in effect for judges: Two men would b nominated and ont elected to each office, all without mention of or re gard for party affiliation. In behalf of this plan, it is argued that it would divorce itat from national politics, that it would remove the menace of th party machine. This is leased upon the assumption that coherence of princi pie between national and state governments is un necessary, also upon tht theory that a party machine ia an evil even when directly responsive to the peo ple through a direct primary system of nominating not only nartv officials but nartv directors. TTe subject ii not as simple as appears on its face. Without party lines on state offices, few will have the temerity to assert that any party organize tion could be maintained; wiping out of state parties 'mean wiping out of national parties as well. Party interest can not be maintained on the election of six congressmen every two years, two senators in six years and presidential electors once in four years. Th question becomes the elimination of all po litical parties. What will result? Men and women will group themselves together. They do it today in the primary; they will do it in the election. If parties be eliminated from the ballot as official enti ties, we will have a series of groups in their places. Only instead of two major parties to which the po litical organization always tends there will be sev eral groups based on economic or other particular in terests. There might be, in Nebraska for instance, a farmers' group, a labor group, a woman's group, a merchants' group, a west Nebraska group, an Omaha T it.- 1 ! 1 i 1 - I ; . .V fciuujj. in me legwiuiure, msieuu oi naving iwo proups in some degree responsible for the carrying out of a program outlined by conventions of dele gates named by the people at their party primaries, we will have perhaps half a doten groups fighting for particular interests which they represent. Whether this group system is to be preferred to a party group plan is the question. PRELIMINARY TO AN INSANE FOURTH. An order has been issued banning the sale of fireworks prior to July 1 and the explosion of fire crackers on any day except the Glorious Fourth. ' Independence Day is yet a week away, but In the residential districts of Omaha the noises of the battle front are heard as giant crackers, blank car tridges and torpedoes are discharged. "Who's going to arrest a kid for shooting fire works just a few days before the Fourth?" asked a police captain when several citizens complained. But this winking at violations of the law is one of the causes for the crowding of our prisons today. A study of the boys who persist in shooting fire crackers this early in the season will reveal many are youngsters unruly in school, on the streets late at night, loafing at the corner. The child of the regulated family is not permitted to violate this fire works ruling. Youngsters should be taught to respect the law. Grizzled students and authorities in criminology pro fess the younger criminals are the most dangerous today. These youngsters who are told it is wrong to shoot firecrackers before the Fourth and then are permitted to keep on doing it anyway, merely are being shown the open door to lawlessness. ARBOR LODGE AND NEBRASKA. A luncheon scheduled for Arbor Lodge today is said to contain the possibility that a tender will be made the state of Nebraska of the homestead tract of the late J. Sterling Morton, to be dedicated as a state park. In the absence of knowledge of terms, definite discussion of the proposal must be held off, but it is permissible to suggest that the people of Nebraska might gracefully assume to responsibility for the care and management of the famous Arbor Lodge property. Such a charge would serve to perpetuate a memorial to the man whose name is so intimately connected with the history of the state, whose exam ple and precept were of such value in developing the tree planting spirit among the citizens of a treeless state, and whose labor in this direction was of such rich result. However, the final disposition of the matter will depend entirely on the consideration sought by the Mofton heirs. Generosity on their part will surely be met by a similar spirit on part of the state. When it is known what is expected from the public, the subject may be dealt with in concrete terms. As a rumor, however, it has attraction. French novels are supposed to be startling, but for sheer daring Paul Rebaux take the prise with his novel which advocates the alliance of Germany and France, denies the story of German atrocities and pictures the German as the embodiment of the most manly virtures. It is said that the French are read ing the book as eagerly as they took to that one of Barbusse, "Under Fire," during the war. In view of the talk about protecting American labor by a tariff, Senator Watson's estimate of the value of European and American labor measured by the labor purchasing power of one ounce of gold is interesting: United States, 17 hours; England, 50 hours; France, 117 hours, and Germany,- 200 hours. NOT ALL PLAY FOR MR. TAFT. Most of the news that reaches America concern ing Chief Justice Taft's visit to England concerns his social movements, most of them taking place after nightfall, but for all that the daylight hours witness his more important activities. Mr. Taft is to report in August to the American Bar association on meth ods by which unnecessary delays in litigation can be obviated. To this end he is studying the British court system. The greater freedom and power of British judges ' he finds results in elimination of technicalities and thus in more speed.. A cablegram to the Philadelphia Public Ledger reports that he has first interested himself in the functions of an official known as "the master of the court." This officer has power to re quirt the prospective litigant to make affidavit that ht honestly believes he could prove the charges, and sifts thet cases, in many instances arranging com promises, thus keeping the court dockets clear. "One situation which I investigated, Mr. Taft said, "showed that out of 7,000 cases presented less than 600 ever reached the judge or. a jury, and they The Toroito Globe declares that the fight for the St. Lawrence waterway must go on till victory is achieved. It can not be claimed that Canada is unanimous in its opposition to the project. ' We take it, Mr. C. W. Bryan proposes to reform everything that is out of kelter, and continue every thing that is working well Well, he scarcely could promise less. A fifteen days' term in jail will slow up some of these reckless drivers for two weeks and a day, anyway. Mexican brigands are not helping their country get into the good graces of th world outside. That double-header in the First district promises occupation for the voters down there. Sun Yat Sen, may be a sinking, but he is not a standing sun. Yoight is making congress go through motions.

Do you ns a farmer's wife want your daughter to marry a farmer? If you are a typical or average Ife of a farmer you do. If you prefer thnt she marry one in some other kind of work you belong to the minority among farmers' wives. The question was asked of the readers of a western magazine de voted to the interests of farm wo men and prizes were offered to stim ulate thoughtfulness In the replies. Seven thousand wives, of farmers submitted their views, 94 per cent of whom said that most assuredly they would advise their daughters to be come wives of farmers. It is an Instructive symposium. If any one may be supposed to under stand thoroughly the trials and sat isfaction, inseparable from the ca reer of a farmer'B wife it ought to be a farmer's wife herself. There is nothing artificial or academic about her sentiments on that sub ject. The collective opinion of these 000 women who discuss in relation to each other two questions very near to every woman's heart, the welfare of their daughters and the condition of their own lives, ought to throw light on a subject vital to America's future. Here are some of the typical rea sons urged by the 94 per cent majority: Baby thrives in the country: grow ing children need out-of-doors life and play. Out-of-door work develops Doay, mind and tones; nerves. Farmer and wife are automatically home and business partners. Tremendous Joy of working wnn nature's creative forces. Children learn laws or reproduc tion naturally and cleanly. Children early learn the deep vame of honest labor. Real neighbors found In country and true neighboring develops best sort of character. ' Farm hred men make better nus- bands than city bred men, as a rule. If these thousands or American farm, women fairly represent views that prevail throughout tne rural portions of this country and there is no reason to suppose tney ao noi one source of uneasiness ior me country's future may be eliminated at once. The pumisners oi me r aim er's Wife of St. Paul, wno mviiea and now print the symposium, give convincing evidence that no "strike of farm women is impending. Hamlin Garland's Border Books.

Whenever It is discussed, more over. It should and doubtless will be borne in mind that the cutting off of the islands from our national do main would be a performance ai once unique, gratuitous and poten tially embarrassing. Since our ac- uisition of the Louisiana xermory we have made several additions to our domain, but never have we in any way alienated so much as a single acre of land. Where the flag ha once been raised In token of sovereignty it ha never been hauled down. It would be a gratuitous act, because we placed ourselves under no obligation whatever to perform : but on the contrary proclaimed the world our purpose not to do but to hold fhe Philippines in perpetuity. It will not do to cite the case of Cuba as analogous. The two case are not only unlike, but are aggressively different from and op posed to each other. In the making of the peace treaty in 1898 Spain trove hard to get us to annex Cuba outright, but we refused. It strove even harder and longer to get us not to annex th Philippines, but we refused. So it was written in the treaty and proclaimed to the world that "Spain relinquishes all claim sovereignty over ana title to Cuba," and that "Spain cedes to tha nlted States th archipelago Known as th Philippine island." Precisely as in the latter case it had long be fore been written and agreed that the first consul of the French re public doth hereby cede to the United State th said territory" (of Louisiana), that "his catholic ma ted v redes to the United States all tha territories known by th nam uf Kt and Wt Tlorlda." and that "nla ittajoaty tha vmparur of all th Kuiulita uKmea to red to th United Ktate all th territory and dominion now noaaesMd by hi roajeaty on lha rontient of America," That I to ay. w acquired lha Philippine Jut a abaolutely, unconditionally and permanently a wa did Louisi ana.

Judge Gary, visiting Wheaton. 111.. his old home town, said that while he could give no general rule for success he would advise every young man to get his start in the country. It will make him healthy. physically, intellectually and mor ally," he aid, "and" it gives him a better chance." That in, if you would shine on Broadway begin on Main street. This is a main traveled road to prosper ity, and rqany city celebrities, if not the greater number of them, have followed it. But is not the better chance to be found less In the moral or intellectual conditions of the small town than In its opportunities for all-round development? The boy in a large city sees only a part of its life. The scale Is too large for his complete comprehen sion, and he is only too likely to be come adapted at an early period to a groove from which it Is difficult to escape. The boy in the small town, on the other hand, takes a greater part in community activities. He know of everything that goes on, has a hand in milch of it, gets a wider outlook and a better sense of proportion. He acquires a more diversified experience which benefits him When he comes to the city by enabling him to recognize in the broader field of city life the condi tion with which he became familiar in the town. Is not thia the secret of the coun try boy's be.tt.er chance? It is not so much a matter of health and morals as of adaptability gained by closer contact with life. , f For a number of year the old ! system of banking In the United States waa regarded as haphazard. No one waa really the responsible neaa or our finances. The comp troller of the currency and the sec retary of the treasury tried to man age a best they could In times of financial atrlngency. Some of our best statesmen and financiers work ed for many years to. devise a system of banking that would overcome the power of Wall street to bring about stringent times at its will. As I recall, there was a committee appointed by congress, of which Sen ator Aldrlch was chairman, to bring some relief for an Intolerable condi tion. They originated what was known a the Aldrlch bill during the latter part of the Taft administra tion. It was defeated by a small vote. A great many democrats aa well as republicans voted for the bill. When Mr. Wilson was elected president he advocated. I think in his inaugural address, the idea of a federal reserve bank, the purpose being to transfer the control of our circulating me dium from Wall street to the govern ment. This was the Aldlch plan, resurrected and clothed with presi dential authority. I think In the congress President Wilson delivered a special message on the subject. It was advocated by a great many people that there should be estab lished a central bank, but a majority opposed to It, A a counter plan they advocated th tabliah ment of a number of financial cen ter, and this wa don. That brought about tli creation of tha federal reaerve banking ayatem. which eaiahliehcd II federal reaerve bank. The Idea clearly In mind waa that this plan would divide th coun try Into It commercial financing yatania, with tha nere.iry director for each of the regional bank r the am lima alablUhlng a hoard of director to control th ayatem, or, In other worda, an executive board. Little did they renllsa that the board they had created wa to con snlldut tha management Into one body, Just th an ma aa on bank. It wna mad eaay picking for Wall etreet, aa wa truly nld by John Rkelton William In hi eech and afterward In hi testimony before th sepal committee on finance. John Hkeltort William waa comp troller of th currency anil wa a member of th federal reaerv board for lght yenr under th Wilson ad mlnlatratlon. lie had been In posi tion to know what he wa talking about. He mnde a tatement In hl peach, and alao under oath, that "tlv banka In Wall atreet had bor rowed mor money from th differ ent federal renerve banka than all th agricultural and live atork Inter eat together." The agricultural and live toc.k Interest represent 8! per cent of th ast of the United Htntea. Mr. William oppoed theo loam, but h wa In th hopeless minority. Harding nnd hi colleagues carried thing hlgh-hndedly. The result was that the money that should hava been used In the west wa cg regated in Wall atreet, a It wa In 1107. and th federal reaerve board I responsible for forcing liquidation. They must not try to put that re sponsibility on the regional or the local bank. Early In 1920 an edict wa Issued by th federal reserve board that liquidation tak place, and I know of several caae where the regional bank abaolutely refused to renew paper of borrowing bank and de manded that a large element of thelf borrowing must be liquidated. In several caae th bank were unable to meet their liabilities and the Federal Reserve bank charged them to the account of the borrowing bank, making an overdraft and compelling them to liquidate. So there was nothing left for the local banks to do but to compel their borrowrs to put their stock an the market im matured. At the saine time the men who usually buy cattle for feeding purpose were unable to get money to buy the stock. The result was the stock In many cases went to the slaughter far In advance of maturity. Over 65 per cent of the cattlemen and about 75 per cent of the tenant farmers of the country are insolvent. Senator Glass, at one time a mem ber of the federal reserve board, and who resigned to become senator from Virginia, It the only man I know of ho has 4 th nrv to defend th federal rrv board. Hefora th enale, in January, lt!l, he ! quoteil to hava an Id that "tha federal reatrvn ujrd functioned with great aklll ami waa targets raeponaihle fur the auc eeas ef th world war." That wa true an far It goea, but aome wi .e man yeara ago aald that "the trmli only half spoken la wore than a falaehood," and that remark la ap pllrabla In thl i-kc. loiter In bla peach h furnlahd,m itatement from th federal rearrve board how lug that during th period of de flation they Im ieaaeil the federal re serve notea n circulation about t7UU,00o,O0u. and thi. paper held un der dlaiounl about 1 4 tio.oou, tioit.

It ha muard many uicldea and broiikht ithmit a deprevHlon that will tske many year of ound financial experience to re cover. Now, my remedy for this financial trouble would be the eli'dlon of a federal reaerve board by district, and. If thnt cannot be brought about, repeal the luw tftid try somethltig else, for the country cannot stand, another financial disaster like the one we have Juat pawied through.

I want to ay to enaior and rep resentative from Nebraska that I am voicing the sentiments of 95 per nt nf their constituents when I say they should offer all the support they can to Senator Heflln and the farm bloc, not only to defeat the reap pointment of Governor Harding, but to enact the program of the farm bloc. Congress should not adjourn until It enacts a law making monop oly In remralnt of trade a felony punishable by a term In prison. The Sherman law ia not workable. Mo nopoly Is the Inciting germ of 95 per cent of all profiteering. Legislation stopping all monopolies, the merger of railroads and that proposed by the steel corporaton recently Is desired.

When in Omaha Stop at Hotel Rome The "Interlocking Credit Record" How the Credit System Works For some weeks the forty-three Coal Dealer Members of the Associated Retail Credit Bureau have been conducting a co operative advertising campaign on the payment of accounts. There are some skeptical customers who try to assure them selves that any person of means may take 90 days or more to pay his coal bill, if he chooses. This is not ao. Let us show by an individual case how the "interlocking credit record" works. Those who owe coal bills should read and ponder. Mr. Slow is requested by Coal Dealer A to clear up an over-due account. He resents the credit man's efforts to make him do what is right and decides he will "get even" by patron izing (?) another coal firm. He betakes himself to Coal Dealer B. The credit man in terviews him. "Mr. Slow," says the Credit Man, "we can't open an account with you here. You take too long to pay your bills." "Nobody ever lost any money on me that I know of," replied Mr. Slow. ' "That's just where you are mistaken," the Credit Man re turns. "The firm that carries your account overtime loses the use of its money, and the use of money is as valuable to them as it is to you." "But how do you know that I do not pay promptly?" Mr. Slow wants to know. "By our system of exchanging information, or 'interlock ing reports.' We credit men keep tab on all customers; those who pay promptly are rated high, and we do everything we can to show them our appreciation. But those who impose upon one of us are known to all of us." "My advice is for you to go back to your old friend, Coal Dealer A, and through him re-establij. your credit record."
