BRINGING ORDER TO IRELAND.
Processes of order are being- supported in Dublin
by the severest of measures. Regrettable as it may
appear to any thinking person, some recalcitrant men
have set themselves up to defy the constituted
provisional government. This government is justify
ing its right to the confidence and support of the
Irish people by moving sternly and vigorously to es
tablish its authority.
Self-government has been and is being put to an
intensive test in Ireland. All the extraneous ele
ments of religious and political differences may be
omitted from present discussion, although it is dif
ficult entirely to overlook them, as they are at the
root of much of the disorder. The great outstanding
fact is that a concrete program was put before the
people of south Ireland, and by their votes they de
cided on a plan for action; to carry this plan into
effect a parliament was chosen, and under this the
government of the Irish Free State is to be set up.
Extremists of the so-called "republican" party
have resisted to the utmost, and force has been em
ployed to dislodge them from buildings in which
they were entrenched. So far as this operation is
concerned, its end was in sight from the beginning;
the government's forces were sure of victory, al
though the ultimate settlement may be delayed for
What must impress the American beholder is the
fact that the provisional government has ceased to
temporize with the opposition. It is not north against
south Ireland, nor Orangeman against Catholic, but
the representatives of a majority against a faction
of the people of south Ireland. Rory O'Connor is
perhaps as devoted as any to the cause of Irish free
dom; his advocacy of the republic has been proven
to the very limit, but his final defiance was directed
against the people of Ireland, and not the crown
of England. There was his mistake.
Order will be restored in Ireland, for the crimes
that have stained the land during the last few months
can not long be endured, nor will they ever
effectually serve in assisting the erection of a free
government. Only despotism possibly can rest on
assassination, while bloody reprisals settle no issues.
With peace will come prosperity. The dream of a
republic will never die, and perhaps may in time
come true, and the Free State is a long step along
the road. That the government is strong enough to
defend itself against armed rebels is a good omen.
AGE AND THE TOWN.
Did you ever shed a figurative tear for the town
that has grown old or the part of a city that has
Human beings grow old and feeble, decrepit and
forgetful. So do towns and neighborhoods grow old
and dilapidated, ugly and useless. The man or woman,
as long as mind remains, still finds pleasure in
memories of days gone by, still is able to-direct the.
mind to thoughts of happy days, still retains thereby
a degree of comfort independent of the immediate
and present surroundings. The town that is worn
out has no such recompense.
A neighborhood grown old is a scene of tumble
down shacks, of unpainted boards, of crumbling
bricks. There are no new buildings; repairs cause
wild excitement. . Everybody passes it by, save those
few whom necessity forces -to tarry in it. Laughter
goes. Drab cheerlessness remains.
There are many such towns in the eastern states.
Some there are in Nebraska. There are such neigh
borhoods in every city. There will be more. Some
times these towns "come back." Sometimes a turn of
population trend brings new people with new ambi
tions. Then old buildings are torn down and new
That is the one chance the old town has which
human beings miss. The old town may live in hopes;
there is one chance in many that it will be reborn.
THREE BILLION "FARM DOLLARS.
The bread basket of-America consists of Ne
braska, Iowa, Missouri, Minnesota, Kansas and the
Dakotas. This fertile region, classified as the "north
central states west of the Mississippi river," pro
duced farm crops valued at close to one and a half
billion dollars last year. A sum even larger than
this represents the value of animal products from
these seven states.
Three billion dollars is an impressive total for a
single industry, but even so ft bids fair to be eclipsed
this year through better prices and a more balanced
yield. " The cutting of wheat has started, and one
after another the fruits 6t the harvest will begin to
move to market The devastating experiences of a
year in which the prices of farm products were shot
to pieces mate the coming season one that will be
anxiously witched. A good farm yield and a stable
market mean everything! to the prosperity, not only
of the farmers, but of the nation as well.
BIGGER BATHING POOLS NEEDED.
One of the' sad accompaniments of summer is
the fact that many young lives are lost through
drowning accidents. The invitation of the cool
water is irresistible on a sultry day, and caution
often floats away on a wave of kappiness, and the
water that is so alluring proves relentless and claims
Under any circumstances the tragedy of a
drowning is depressing, but it is especially so when
it occurs where seemingly every precaution has been
taken to prevent such mishaps, and where trained
experts are on guard all the time. If the victim
happen to be a swimmer, almost fit to be classed
as an expert, then the event appears almost inex
cusable. Yet these very provisions contributed to
the death of little "Pete" Gillotte, at Riverview park.
The life guards were on duty, the boy could
swim, and yet he was drowned. Why? Because the
bathing pool at Riverview is too small to meet the
demands upon it. Between 150 and 200 bathen
were in the pool at tht time of the accident. This
overcrowding led to confusion, and in some sy
the lad was stunned and drowned and nobody misted
him in tht crowd.
Tht remedy is bathing pools of larger
dimensions. Omaha has plenty of room in it parks,
and plenty of water available, to furnish swimming
holes that will be big enough to takt cart of thost
who want to uit them. No greater boon can bt con.
ferred during tht summer days than tht privilege of
a plunge into tht clean, cold water of a well ap
pointed bathing pool, and monty spent to provide
such comfort for old and young is money well spent.
Hut it It only well spent when it maket also for
safety, and the overcrowded pool is not safe.
THE PUBLIC STAKE IN INDUSTRY.
Rather interesting is tht way in which great busi
ness interests art turning, not to captains of industry,
but to public men, sometimes loosely classified as
politicians, to pull them out of their difficulties. First
Judge Landis was called at arbiter for baseball; then
tht moving picturt corporations secured Will Hays.
The theatrical Interests are reported to have unsuc
cessfully invited Barney Baruch to a similar posi
tion. And only the other day Franklin D. Roosevelt
was elected president of the American Construction
council, with wide powers in regulating tht asso
ciated building industries of tht country.
In each of thest instances tht purpose it to clean
up evil conditions. The Lockwood investigation of
the building trades in New York showed a condition
of affairs that shocked and amazed the public. Mr.
Roosevelt, it Is announced, will "co-ordinate and
standardize efforts for increasing the efficiency of
all kinds of construction." No doubt he will, but the
establishment of moral standards, the elimination of
graft, restoration of competition and the winnlnz of
public confidence is plainly a major duty.
It it not a matter empty of significance that busi
ness men thut should turn to public men to lift them
out of their difficulties. These arbiters or dictators,
through years of public service have won the esteem
of large numbers of people. In a way they represent
the idea that the purpose of this nation was not the
amassing of wealth but tht benefit of the citizena,
both as producers and consumers. This theory by
which business is considered not as an end but a
means, to be run for the good that is in it rather
than entirely for the profit, is taking hold of the na

THE BEE'S LETTER BOX
DEMOCRATS AND THE FARMERS.
Whatever the result of the. primary election in
North Dakota, Porter J. McCumber's standing with
the democratic party leaders is fixed. He has re
ceived the endorsement of the farm bloc in the sen
ate, and this is objected to by the party which objects
to anything a republican does. Senator McGumber
is especially offensive to the democrats just now, be
cause his name is attached to the tariff bill, under
which an effort is being made to secure protection
for farm produce.
At the moment an onslaught is being made on
the farm bloc because of its support of a republican,
candidate for United States senator, a violent attack
is launched against the agricultural schedule of the
McCumber tariff bill by Senator Walsh, democrat,
from Massachusetts. He is willing that the farmers
have little or no protection, and in this seems to voice ,
the sentiment of his party. The connection is direct
and the conclusion is unavoidable, that the whole
move is one to blind the farmers to their true inter
est, and to secure votes for the free trade opponents
of the pending bill.
Members of the farm bloc knew what they were
doing when they recommended Porter J. McCumber.
to the republicans of North Dakota in preference to
Lynn J. Frazier. The choice will be made by the
voters, who will consult their own interests, regard
less of advice from the democrats.
HIGH PLACE AWAITS GREEN.
Joseph W. Fordney of Michigan, chairman of the
house committee on ways and means, has just an
nounced that he will not be a candidate for re-election.
He will retire at the close of his present term,
after a service of twenty-four years in congress. The
interest locally in this fact is that the retirement of
Mr. Fordney will bring William Raymond Green of
Council Bluffs into the spotlight. He is the ranking
republican member of the committee, and, if the
republicans retain control of the house, will by right
of seniorfty become chairman of the most important
of all its committees. This will bring a further dis
tinction to add to the already long list Iowa has
achieved by reason of the service of its senators and
representatives in the congress. Mr. Green has been
a member of the ways and means committee for
many years, and knows the history of the revenue
laws of the land from the first. The prospect of his
elevation to the chairmanship of the committee, and
therefore to a place of control in all revenue legisla
tion, must be gratifying to his constituents.
AMERICA'S AID TO HAITI.
Hectic discussion of the situation in Haiti and
San Domingo was handed a severe jolt by the senate
special committee on Monday. This body has spent
many weeks inquiring into the political, social and
economic affairs of the island, and has made particu
lar effort to ascertain the effect of the presence there
of the United States forces. It finds:
In brief, under the treaty (between Haiti and
the United States), the peace of the republic, the
solvency of its government, and the security of
its people have been established for the first time
for many years.
The report contains a recommendation that a re
duced force of marines be kept in the island to secure
order and uphold the government until peace is fully
established. Mistakes are admitted, but the con
clusion is that American intervention has been of
"constructive service" to the two black republics.
This is a perfect answer to the propaganda of the
TONS OF RECKLESSNESS.
Three men, at a single police court session Tues
day, each drew sentences of fifteen days in jail on
charges of reckless automobile driving.
That is as it should be.
A man who hits another over the head with a
hammer, without provocation, faces a term in prison
for assault with intent to murder, if nothing worse.
The automobile driver who hurls a weight of from
one to two tftns through the streets at upwards of
thirty miles an hour, or without due care for others
on the thoroughfare, is potentially in the same class.
Probablj 25 per cent of the students now in
American colleges would achieve greater success in
living if they had never entered, is the amazing
declaration of President Faunce of Brown. If this
is true, there is something seriously the matter with
the educational system no use to try to blame the
Rev. G. K. Stark, a minister from Minneapolis,
is speaking in the churches of Sweden in favor of
prohibition, greatly to the disgust of the wets. And
the prospects are that they will feel even more bitter
after the national election on this question.

Getters and Given.
Kr"i th Wichita Esgls.
The American magazine asked H.
G. Wells to namel the six greatest
inpn in history. The answer of Mr.
Wells is worth reading.
v ho are the six greatest men of
history? Opinions will differ as to
the inclusion or exclusion of certain
important names. Opinions will vary
as to the rule by which one may pick
the six greatest men or the million
greatest men of history, sacred, pro
fane, ancient or contemporary. But
Mr. Wells has his ideas, and Mr.
Wella is a man of keen insight and
posesolng a marvelous store of
Here are his six greatest:
. Jesus Christ,
Two great religious teachers, one
philosopher, one king, one scientist,
one president of a republic. One
from Judea, two from India, one
from Greece, one from England, one
from America. Most of them Mved
a lonir time ago, according to the
customary way of computing time.
Only two of the six spoke the English
language. Only one was born since
the discovery of America.
Not a military hero anions them
all. Not a fighter in the lUt. The
pages of history are lurid with the
endless procession of the conquerors.
but not one of them lands in this list
of selected great men. Nor, by the
same method of judging greatness
would one of them land in any such
list, be 'it ever so long.
For Mr. Wells says, very reason
ably as it seems, that the men who
have really impressed their personal
ities uDon the world, the men who
have changed humanity's ways of
thinking and of living, have not been
getters, but givers.
NaDoleon? Alexander? Croesus?
Rockefeller? Amenophls? Their
names have been written In the
blood and sweat of multitudes. But
that, will not do. The Judge sends
them out of court with a wave of
the hands. For they were getters.
They got things for themselves.
In the list made by Mr. Wells
there is but one rich man, who also
is the only king in the list Asoka.
He is little known to the world of
our day and place, f!hd his right to
a. place in such a select list will be
questioned more severely than that
of any of the other five. He was a
king of Magadha, an Indian state of
great extent, and died about 223
years before the birth of Christ.
Wells is a great admirer of him. He
points out that Asoka is the only
war king who' had sense enough to
stop fighting when he had put down
opposition and made peace in his
realm. Among millions in the Orient
he still is venerated as a great edu
cator, civilizer, humanitarian. Per
haps if we knew as much about
Asoka as Mr. Wells does we should
be inclined to agree with him in this
selection. But, not being thus ad
vantaged, we would venture to sug
gest the name Christopher Colum
but, a great giver whose gifts to the
world have changed profoundly the
ways of life and thinking of count
less millions of beings.
In prisons, in fastings, in tribula
tion of the spirit, they gave to us
what makes us rich ia-soul and mind.
They asked in return nothing that
this world can give. They lived suc
cessful lives. '
From the Cleveland News. ...
Strangely enough, the decision
given by- Chief Justice Taft in the
name of the United States supreme
court, holding that labor unions
may be sued for damages resulting
from strikes and their strike funds
may be levied upon to pay such
damages, waa a unanimous decision.
That seems a fortunate circum
stance, whether the judgment is
considered a "great victory" for the
United Mine Workers of America,
as claimed by counsel for that or
ganization, or whether the doctrine
of financial responsibility extending
to unions is deemed a staggering
blow to organized labor's tenets.
Apparently the decision was fully
concurred irf, not only by associate
justices of conservative or repub
lican history, such as Messrs. Mc
Kenna. Holmes, Day, Van Devanter
and Pitney, but as well by Messrs.
McReynolds, Clarke and Brandeis,
appointees of democratic adminis
trations, and perhaps considered by
some, as to some of them, excep
tionally liberal, progressive or radi
cal In their legal views. 'The un
usual unanimity gives the ruling
strength, as a self-evident proposi
tion admitting of no doubt even
where differences of opinion is com
mon, and removes it from the ar
senal of politics.
Political opponents of President
Harding's administration have been
calling It the "friend of big busi
ness," a "rich man's government"
and all that sort of thing. The ef
fort to discreditthe party in power
by process of vague insinuation will
doubtless be intensified with the
coming campaign. The supreme
court decision that labor unions
have no special immunity from re
sponsibility for their acts would have
come in very handily, could It be
called the work of the republican
administration. As it stands. It Is
bipartisan, legal, logical, business
like, anything but political.

would be better for every one to
keep hands off that subject, as at
this long range very few of us are

the Irish people.
