STRIKE SETTLEMENT DUE TODAY.
Dispatches from Washington have a very optim
istic note, expressing confidence that the conferences
to be held in Chicago today will bring a settlement
of the railroad strike on lines proposed by the presi
dent. Just exactly what Mr. Harding has suggested
is not yet given to the public, but it is hinted that
each side is required to make some concession. Work
will be resumed and the matters of difference again
taken to the Railroad Labor Board for consideration
The attitude of the disputants is also encourag
ing. From B. M. Jewell comes an expression to the
effect that he will recommend to the union heads' the
acceptance of the president's proposal. If he does
this, it will be done in good faith and without re
serve, and will carry much weight with the men. On
the other hand, while some of the executives of the
railroads throughout the country maintain a "hard
boiled" stand and T. Dewitt Cuyler, chairman of the
executives' association, holds to the strict letter 1n
his statement, declining to specifically commit him.
self to the acceptance of the president's suggestion,
plenty of reason exists for thinking these alert and
energetic men will find a way to get around certain
obstacles, and will do their part in lifting an em
bargo that is now affecting all.
The group that deliberately thrusts aside any rea
sonable proposal for ah honorable settlement of a
great industrial dispute, insisting on submission of
ita opponent, is accepting a grave responsibility.
When the dispute is one that affects a basic Indus
try, then it becomes a concern of the public, for the
welfare of the nation is at all times a paramount con
sideration. Just now it is of secondary importance to
the world whether men who did not go out on strike
and those who since have re-entered the shops are
te be protected in seniority (which is defined as.
preference in choice of work) , or whether those who
did go out are to be restored in the original posi
tion. The president of the United States has reasoned
with men of strength and pride. He has asked them
to forego something of their personal feelings for the
public good. Granting this request of the president
will not weaken any principle that is involved, nor
detract from the dignity or mitigate the authority of
any one connected with the strike.
Grant showed magnanimity at Appomattox, and
gave use a word we may well repeat now. "Let us
have peace!" ,
ESSENTIALS TO PROSPERITY.
It is evident enough how necessary railroads and
coal mines are. If ever there was any doubt, the
events through which America is now emerging have
demonstrated how necessary also is an industrious
and contented body of workers to man them.
The prosperity of the nation depends on securing
this. Not by any invention of machinery is the mat
ter to be solved, but solely by the discovery of ways
to better human relationships.
Suppose one man, or one set of men succeeded
in devising and controlling machines that would per
form all the necessary work, thus doing away with
the need for human labor. Where would they sell
their products? The men who had no work and were
attached to no payroll would not have the money with
which to buy them.
The times when this country has been most pros
perous have come twhen all men were employed at
some useful task. Measured in actual terms, pros
perity consists in nothing less than plenty of goods
to be consumed, plus the ability of the people gen
erally to purchase them. Stoppage of work, paucity
of wages or a lowering of the standard of living sets
the cogs of the economic machine in reverse.
The ending of the present industrial disputes in
a satisfactory manner will mean much to American
prosperity. It is not only that the men affected
have been without an income during their strike that
has prevented their buying, but they also have not
been contributing to the production or distribution
of goods. They are poorer than before, and so is the
whole public. Verily, there is no prosperity without
an equitable balance of all factors. The task of ad
justment is a complicated one, but certainly not be
yond the power of man, once the desirability is
and it ought not to be further mixed up by the addi
tion of a complicated code of signals to be wigwagged
by the driver who should be giving hi attention to
more important parts of his occupation. Stick to
the simple way; it will be found the bettor in the end.
Make the streets safer and not more complex.
NEW AUTOMOBILE SIGNALS.
The city police commissioner is reported to favor
a new system of signalling for drivers of automobiles.
According to the published accounts, the extended
arm of the motorist is to describe certain varying
motions, each of semaphorie nature, and each convey
ing its separate and distinct notion of the driver's
purpose as at warning to any who are following him.
The idea of the plan is undoubtedly good. It is
intended to give more accurate information to driv
ers of what the fellow ahead of them intends to do.
That is all raight, as far as it goes. The difficulty
will cdme not to those who are versed in the code, but
to those who are unacquainted with it And it is
possible that not a few of the men, women and chil
dren who pilot motor cars along the city's thorough
fares will lack intimate knowledge of the code.
The principal purpose of the signal is to notify
the following driver that the one giving it intends to
turn, to stop, or to do something else besides pro
ceed at the rate of speed his car is maintaining. This
is due notice to all to look out, to be on guard. When
the one who gives the signal follows it by the first
step in his intended maneuver, those who are coming
behind him are appraised of what will follow, and
govern themselves accordingly. This system puts
a little of the responsibility on both, and that is at
it should be.
Our street traffic is sufficiently confused at best,
THE DILEMMA OF GREECE.
The breakdown of the Greek campaign in Asia
Minor demonstrated to the world, if not to King Con
stantine, that his is not a military people. Their
special aptitude is for business and trading, a pursuit
that has made them also a nation of tailors. If the
stability of the throne depends on the appearance of
military success, the king may as well give up now
Venlxelot received more from the peace confer
ence than he bad asked more, it appears than his
country could take and hold. Seaports necessary to
the trade of Jugo-Slnvia, Bulgaria and Turkey were
there awarded to Greece in spite of national unrest
that would be stirred up in the Balkans. The Turk
was to be driven from Europe, the pious announce
ment came, and Greece was assigned the responsibili
ty. Britain's plans would have allowed Greek con
trol of Constantinople, but France would not consent.
Now, however, the French and English, influenced
by the need for friendly relations with their Moham
medan subjects, have restored Constantinople to the
Turk and even had arranged for the complete with
drawal of the Greeks from Asia Minor. King Con
stantino first counters with a move toward Con
stantinople, and upon being warned away by the
powers, declares Smyrna and its hinterland to be an
independent Greek state.
In ancient times Smyrna was a part of the glory
that was Greece. Homer is said to have been born
there, and Alexander reconquered it. There is a
dramatic appeal in King Constantine's effort to hold
it that should appeal strongly to his people.
However, Greece can accomplish nothing without
the backing of the great powers. For a time England
was its backer, while France sided with the Turks;
now they both appear to have deserted it. The Greeks
have not the strength to accomplish their territorial
plans much better would they be if they returned
to the commercial penetration of the Eastern
Mediterranean region where their location and train
ing gives them large advantage.
DID ROOSEVELT CUSS?
In his reminiscences of our presidents H. H. Kohl-
saat chanced to remark on having heard some strong
language from Theodore Roosevelt. Mark Sullivan
was prompt to rise to the defense and questioned
whether anyone had ever heard the colonel use pro
fanity. His command of the English language was
too great, this opinion ran, to necessitate resort to
the rather hackneyed expletives that serve as safety
valves for lesser men.
The controversy continues, drawing evidence for
the defense from many noted men. Henry Cabot
Lodge and Gifford PLnchot among them. Lawrence
F." Abbott writes to the New York Evening Post to
record his surprise that Colonel Roosevelt, with "his
robustness and love of men of the frontier and pio
neering type," never was known to use an expletive
or tell a story that would offend the most sensitive
"He was one of the most clean minded and clean
mouthed men I have ever come in contact with,"
says Mr. Abbott. "Profane and obscene men felt this
quality so that their own language was guarded in
his presence. This was not because he was austere
or professionally pious, but simply because he
radiated decency and good breeding."
Many thing? were anathema to Roosevelt, and he
was never reticent in expressing hisf eelings. Wood-
row Wilson's favorite expression on the golf course
is said to have been "tut tut;" those who knew
Roosevelt will remember his occasional use of "By
Godfrey" to express determination. These can hardly
be called oaths, though possibly they were substi
tutes. There have been men who could drive mules
without cursing, and the evidence is pretty good that
this country has been run with a similar absence of
reprehensible language. Certainly here is an ex
ample to put many leesser men to shame.
FOR A CLEAN CAMPAIGN.
Senator Hitchcock pleads for a clean campaign.
This plea should be granted, for all hands are anxi&us
to see politics of Nebraska kept on a high plane. We
voters are intelligent, and the appeal must be made
to their reason, their sound judgment, and not to
their passion or prejudice. Therefore, the canvass
for votes this year ought to be carried on in a digni
fied manner. This, however, should not be interpreted
to mean that a candidate's public record is not to be
scrutinized; that one who has continually shifted his
position, standing first in one and then in another po
sition on thVsame question; who, for example, has
been back and forth along the political runway, is to
be allowed to escape examination. Nor should it be
considered "mud slinging" to smile at the spectacle
of Dr. Jennie Calf ass and "Jim" Dahlman, seated
side by side on the same platform, and pleading for
"harmony." The campaign should be a clean one,
clear and definite, and devoid of personalities, but
the candidates will have to be judged by what they
have done, not by what they promise to do.

As depleted by Senator Norrl,
the Ford plan Is 'made to appear
like a "(lei Klch quirk Walllna
ford" scheme projected on a nit
tlonsl iriilx rather tlmn confined to
the dlnieimions of a hick town. Mr,
Kord is to gut everything the gov
ernment 1mh put Into the plant up
to date. This amounts to -over a
hundred million dollars, lie In to
pay about five million dollars for
the movable property not needed
for t ho plant luit which, according
to Senator Norrls, can he changed
into $7,onn,000 of ruHh over night,
leaving Mr. Ford a couple of mil
lions to start working with. Hut
this is not all. Tho government la
to complete the plant and for the
money that is to be uxed, and
which the taxpayers will furnish.
Mr. Ford In to pay, according to
the same authority, a little less than
3 per cent.
In addition to all this, the gov
ernment undertakes to keep the
dam In repair for 100 year, an un
heard of obligation. Mr. Ford gets
a leasa to the plant for a 100-year
period, which is eulvalent to a gift
and it is not surprising that Sena
tor Norris describes the proposition
as one proposing the greatest gift
in the history of the world.
And what does Mr. Ford agree to
do for all o fthis? Just this: He
proposes to devote a small amount
of the power generated to the man
ufacture of fertilizer and obligates
himself not to make more than 8
per cent on this part of the plant,
made possible by the taxpayer's
money for which Mr. Ford pays
less than 3 per cent. This would
eeem to be tho height of satirical
generosity. The rest of the power
is Mr. Ford's to do with as he
pleases and for a ' hundred years.
He does not propose to furnish
cheap power to anyone but him
self. He proposes to build a man
ufacturing plant which the real es
tate speculators who have brazenly
opened their headuarters In Wash
ington, announce will result in a
community rivaling Detroit or even
New York. There is to be no regu
lation of the power so generated,
no adherence to the principle estab
lished in the law controlling water
power and limiting leases to 50
years, accompanied by strict gov
Mr. Ford is to have his own sweet
will about it. all because he stands
well in public opinion in his ca
pacity of a multimillionaire.
But there is not even the reliance
upon Mr. FOrd's reputation for
philanthropy to justify this offer.
Mr. Ford is not negotiating directly
for the plant. It is being done in
his name and a corporation is to
be formed which will outlast Mr.
Ford In the natural expectancy of
life from -80 to 80 years. It should
be remembered that the 100-year
lease does not commence to run
until the project Is completed.
Trusts have been described as
sood trusts and bad trusts and we
suppose it Is possible with a, proper
exercise of th virtue of charity to
segregate Mr. Ford from the ordi
nary run of the mill multimlllion
aire on the basis of past achieve
ment. Even with this admission.
it is well to remember that Mr.
Ford has done fairly Well in amass
ing millions. He has paid good
wages it is true, and has turned out
a cheap car. All this to his credit,
but in doing all this he has not
overlooked the main chance and
it is safe to assume he will contin-.
tie to do so in his present activity
of grabbing up water power.
As Edison, from his wizard's re
sort at Orange. N. J., said of his
friend, Ford, "Henry is no fool."
Still it is something to stand in
a. millionaire class all one's own.
Whether deserved or not, the spe
cial standing which Mr. Ford has
is worth something and Mr. Ford
should guard it jealously.
In order to do so, he should re
ply and promptly, to the criticisms
suggested in the Norris report. If
there is any plausible explanation
that can be given of this preposter
ous offer, it Rhould be forthcoming
and the public which has placed
confidence in the Ford offer be
cause of its confidence in Ford, is
entitled to it.

Vd be worth a
fortune today iY
You can't turn back the
wheels of time
But you can profit by the ex
perience of others or your
own mistakes of the past and
begin now to save.
Only those who cultivate the
habit of saving reap the re
wards of opportunity.
