SENIORITY IN THE SENATE.
Medill McCormlrk's proposed campaign against
seniority in the senate will awaken discussion of one
of the purposes of that body which is frequently for
irotten. Of all the "checks and balances" provided
by the Fathers none is more Important than the
senate. The well remembered tale of Hamilton pour
ing his tea into a saucer illustrates perfectly what
was in mind when the senate was created.
Demand for popular government is steadily rising;

McCormick's objection that the seniority rule frc
quently deprives the nation of the service of the

Gilbert M. Hitchcock succeeded William J. Stone as

LaFollette's opposition grows out of what he says
will be the impossibility ofs"a progressive minority"
achieving a position of power if the rule is changed.
It may well be questi'oned if a minority chairman
could be of real service. The greater danger to be
seen in the McCormtck proposal is the power it would
give to cliques, although even that is established so
far as the present minority party is concerned.
What Editors Elsewhere Are Saying
THE BEE'S LETTER BOX
ARBITRATION FOR COAL STRIKE.
President Harding has presented what seems like
a reasonable proposal for settling the coal strike. He
offers arbitration by a board to consist of three rep
resentatives of the miners, three for the operatora
and five to be appointed by the president. A report
from this board is asked by August 10, with wor to
be resumed at once on the scule and under the condi
tions that prevailed on April 1, when the strike began.
Failure to report by August 10 will automatically
. carry the scale over to April 1, 1923.
Here is an offer more attractive than that which
was made by President Roosevelt, when, in October,
1902. he intervened in the anthracite coal strike and
virtually ordered the contending parties to submit
their case to a board he had named. The outcome or
that inquiry, which was in no sense an arbitration, but
a quasi-judicial investigation with its finding tacitly
accepted in advance of making, established a working
basis for the anthracite field that held for many years.
President Harding offers a plan on which work may
be resumed with no loss of advantage to either side,
and under which the public will be relieved of threat
The arbitration will accomplish one thing the
miners have Bought, and which has been avoided by
the operators, a general conference where a wage
scale basic, for the industry can be agreed upon.
Operators found this method of dealing with the
miners advantageous, until the federal court's order
and indictment disturbed the relation. If the situa
tion so created .may now be relieved by the board the
president suggests, it will be a happy outcome for all.
One thing is plain unless the digging of coal is
soon resumed, great suffering will follow during the
winter. Industry is more than consuming what is
now coming out of the ground, and the winter re
quirement for fuel will more than equal that of the
summer, which is not met. On so rational a basis as
that offered by the president both sides to the argu
ment may well rest their case. Neither ventures any
thing that is material, but each can contribute greatly
to the gbod of all. The one that refuses accepts a
HANDLING MUSCLE SHOALS PLANT.
The clash of method between Senators Norris and
Ladd with regard to Muscle Shoals and the Henry
Ford offer involves nothing of purpose. Each is de
sirous of seeing the big plant put to some use, par
ticularly for the production of fertilizer. Senator
Norris does this after he has supported a proposal to
give the potash of Nebraska the advantage of a pro
jr senator juaua is eviuenuy ui mo
under Henry Ford the manufacture of fertilizer at
Muscle Shoals will go ahead much faster than it will
if the government is left in control. He may be right,
at that, but Senator Norris files the objection that
the Ford proposal at present amounts to a long time
lease on a government plant at the lessee's own terms.
What the people in general want is that the great
investment made at Muscle Shoals be turned to ad
vantage in some fashion. If it can be put to produc
ing fertilizer at a rate that will aid Nebraska in sup
plying the country's needs and free the farmers from
paying tribute to Germany, France and Chile, the
sooner that is done the better.
Nebraska uses very little fertilizer, practically
none at all, but does produce about 65 per cent of all
the potash that is brought to market from domestic
sources. It is in quantities far too small to meet re
quirements, and must be supplemented from some
source. Muscle Shoals may be the answer, but that
is no reason why a big bonus should be paid to any
individual or group of individuals for operating a
plant financed by the federal government.
MISS ALICE AND HER CAMPAIGN.
Oklahoma is not under our jurisdiction; if it were
some things might be ordered differently; however
we have a little more than passing interest in the
campaign that is being carried on by Miss Alice
Robertson, who aspires to another term in the house.
Her courage demands the sincere respect of every
man. She is a republican, and makes no denial of
her political affiliations. She flatly refuses to make
a pre-election promise of any kind. "I never have
Bnd never will,", is her answer to any request that
she pledge herself to a certain project or policy. This
Is not politics, but it is plain honesty. If Miss Alice
goes back to congress, Oklahomans can rely on the
fact that at least one member from that state is un
trammeled. Another point that might be remembered
ts that when Representative Robertson opened her
campaign, she did it with the Holy Bible in front of
her, and read a passage from the scriptures before
she started to talk. Congress needs such members.
CRIME AND PURE CUSSEDNESS.
A feature of the attempted pay roll robbery at
the L. C. Doup factory suggests that the doctrine of
total depravity may have foundation. Learning that
the loot they sought was in checks rather than in cur
rency, the baffled bandits deliberately destroyed the
checks. It was an evidence of petulant spite, of
sublimated meanness, of petty cussedness.
Destroying the checks did not alter the situation
as far as the robbers were concerned; it only meant
the destruction of some hours of work, and neces
sitated doing it over again. However, the spirit was
the same. If the checks had possessed many times
their intrinsic value, the meanness of tearing them
up would have been no greater. The law can not
deal adequately with these men, who, if ever they
are caught, will be held only for attempted robbery;
the fact that they did not get the pay roll in cash
would have been in their favor, but they did take
small sums from employes of the company who were
near, which will be sufficient to convict them.
Yet even that conviction will not carry with it
restitution in any form. A proper penalty would re
quire that they not only restore what they stole, but
that they make compensation for what they tore up.
Imprisonment is theoretically a punishment for
crime, but it does not go far enough. While the con
vict is serving his term in prison, he should have al
ways in his mind the fact that his' labor would not
be his own until he made whole the victim of his
crime, in pocket at least. With such an addition, the
average criminal might think a second before he
blithely sets forth to steal something he is too in
dolent to work for.
' JUST LIKE THE MOVIES.
Now and then some captious critic tilts his nose
t a movie and snorts, "It can't be done!" Generally
l.his is evoked by some exhibition where a genteel
criminal is shown associating with people of culture
ind yet carrying on his desperado work in a fashion
that would put the most brutal of criminals to shame.
Such duality, the cavilers argue, is impossible. But
Federal detectives in New York have just arrested
t trio of the most daring and desperate criminals this
tountry has ever harbored. Their aims were high,
Ihe crime for which they are at present held being
the theft of $2,500,000 of negotiable federal securi
ties. And these men are described by various titles
that indicate their ability. Each is credited with
having cultured taste in all that goes to denote a
Literature, art, food, clothes, social communica
tion none but the best for them. Each had a repu
tation as a connoisseur in some line, and all read

a huge pistol, equipped with a silencer.

OMAHA A GOOD PLACE TO GATHER.
Omaha is host today to two important gatherings
of widely separated interests. The Transmississippi
golf tournament is in progress at the links of the
Omaha Country club, while down town the Missouri
Valley Veterinarian association is duscussing its af
fairs. No connection whatever between a golf club
and a sick animal, but the coincidence shows how
general the hospitality of the city has become.
Fully 150 golfers are engaged in the sport that
absorbs so much interest, and . has gained such
prominence in the last few years. It was not vei-y
long ago that the sporting editor of The Omaha Bee
declined to attend a golf match, holding that it prop
erly belonged to the domain of the society reporter.
He knows better now. Golf has not supplanted base
ball, as another inspired local sporting writer
prophesied it would, but has attained a place as
respectable and dignified as an outdoor sport can ex
pect to achieve. Its followers are as enthusiastic as
any crowd of baseball fanatics ever thought of being,
with the added advantage that the true golfer plays
the game himself, and doesn't engage someone to do
it for him.
Veterinarians, too, have progressed along a road
that has not always been smooth to a position among
the scientists. Animal pathology has its place in the
world of knowledge as distinct and as established as
that of man. "Horse doctor" is no longer a term of
reproach, but an acknowledgement that its wearer
is qualified by scientific training and experience to
save the farmer and breeder money by reason of his
ability to diagnose and minister to diseases that oth
erwise would destroy valuable animals. Therefore,
the veterinarian convention is important.
Omaha is steadily proving its capacity for taking
care of gatherings of unusual size, while looking
after the normal traffic without a hitch.

A Code New to the Sea,
From the Philadelphia Ledger.
There is going to be plenty of in
dignation expressed at the statement
of the Liverpool firm of ship owners
which holds it is "not necessarily
the duty of a vessel to proceed to the
assistance of another which has met
with disaster in a fog." The Indigna
tion will probably nowhere be more
pronounced than in the country un
der whose flag the ship owners In
question ply their trade, for no one
has contributed more gallantly to
establishing the best traditions of
seararlng than the men who sail the
seven seas In Its ships.
One of the first traditions of the
sea Is to go to the aid of the ship In
distress, and to go whether in good
weather or bad, in security or in
danger; through calm seas or
tempest-riven Infernos. Only get
there! Look out for yourself after
you nave looked out for the vessel
that is worse off than you are. And
the worse it is off the more it needs
That was the old doctrine. Here Is
the new: "It is certainly difficult to
conceive of anythinc more danger
ous than for several vessels proceed
ing on converging courses in a fog
with the sense that early arrival at
the scene of disaster is a matter of
moment. Such an operation is far
more likely to increase than dimin
ish the loss of life and property."
Of course it is dangerous. Masters
of sailing ships do not need to be
told that by owners writing letters
from a swivel chair. They know It
well enough. But there is the dif
ferences of viewpoint. The sailor
would go, knowing the danger; the
owner would have him stop because
of the danger.
It is in this code to the new creed
that the meat of the matter is set
forth: "If in response to an S. O. S.
message the master of a ship elects
to, take grave risk to the safety of
his ship and the persons and proD-
erty on board, and, unfortunately In
doing so incurs disaster, who is to
pay ror all this?"
who is to pay? There are two
ways or answering that Question.
The answer most likely to appeal to
the person who asked it is: The in
surance company and be sure there
would be insurance in this case. The
other way would be to imagine the
answer from the men who have gone
to their deaths in the sea seeking to
rescue those in desperate need, and
from the widows and children thev
have left behind on land. There Is
third way to answer which con
sists in framing the question a little
auTierently: Who is to par if a ship

Profiteering In Foreign Goods.
From the Hastings Tribune. ,
It is good to know that a move
has been inaugurated In Washington
to prevent the profiteering on for
eign goods sold In the United States.
And it is also good to know that
this was brought about by Senator
Norris of Nebraska, who is chair
man of the agricultural committee.
Senator Norris introduced an
amendment to the tariff bill making
it a misdemeanor to sell foreign
goods at more than 25 per cent in
excess of the import value.
In explaining his amendment, Sen
ator Norris declared that 25 percen
was sufficient profit to be made
after the Import price had been paid
And can any conscientious Ameri
can citizen say that Senator Norris
is not right in his discussion?
If the bill as amended by Senator
Norris goes through any American
manufacturer who sells goods above
the 25 per cent profit limit willbe
subject to a nne oi not less man ,suv
or more than $5,000 or imprison
ment of not less than three months
or more than two years.
Such a bill should become a law.
