PEOPLE'S RIGHTS COME FIRST.
President Hording in giving coiuideration to
what course is necessary to secur relief frura a
uttualion that )i now intolerable. Congress lia
responded promptly to his request for a Jaw to pro
tide for inveatigation of the mining' problem, that
a permanent solution may be found and the country
I t inured of a steady supply of fuel. The next biff
rjuetion is to get that furl to the consumer.
Thin involve the railroads. Domestic and indus
trial conditions demand at present a greater sen ice
than the roads can give, even were the functioning
100 per cent normal. Figures given out at Chi
i ago put the shop forces at 56 per cent of normal.
Colling stock is daily falling back, btcauta of lack
of repair, and the immediate needs of the country
all for the use of every tar and locomotive in
The president is informed on these points, and
h is alfo committed to tha principle that public
service is above any private consideration. What
ever merits the dispute between the managers on
the one hand and the shopmen on the other may
he, the right of the people to be served by the rail
losds is above either or all. Groups of obstinate
men, each insisting on its position and declining to
compromise, should not be allowed to penalize the
tntire nation. Great factories are closing down for
'ack of fuel, in face of an increasing demand for
their output. No matter how busy the workers in
mines and railroad shops may be for the next few
months, it will be difficult to supply fuel for do
mestic and industrial needs.
That is the situation today. Mr. Harding has
ncted with great patience. He has endeavored to
secure a settlement, proposing terms that the dis
putants might have accepted with no loss of honor
or dignity, and these have been rejected, first by
one, then by the other, and the deadlock continued.
Now has come a time when the folly can not be
permitted to go further. Railroad managers and
railroad workers alike must realize the obligation
they are under to serve the people. Governmental
operation of tha lines is not looked upon as desir
able, yet it may prove the only solution.
If Mr. Harding does ask congress for authority
to take over the roads, it will be because there is
no other way to secure the service that must be had.
And, just as he has had the loyal support of the
disinterested thinking public, so he will have it to
ihe end. In the meantime, we may be sure that
( onsideration is being given to ways and means for
averting such disasters in the future.

8 vrnty five men ar trapped by Are, almost
three-quarters ef a mile below the surface of the
earth, in a California mint. The fire is raging at
the 3,500'foot level, and they ar below it. To get
an idea of what this depth means, stand at Twenty
second street and look down Farnam to the B. A
M. headquarter building; er imagine fourteen build
ings like the Woodmen of the World, piled one on
top of the other, and a shaft running through, only
keeping in mind that the shift goes down into the
earth, and you may understand how deep the fire
is below the surface. And some of the men were
at work 1,000 feet further down. Little bop is
entertained of saving any of the seventy-five.
Human means scarcely ran reach them in time to b
of service, They will die in the depth of the pi..
Her is one of the tragedie of Industry that will
come horn to the readers of newspapers with telling
force. It contains elements that are undeniable in
their appeal. Yet it is but on of the things that
happen so frequently, that they have com to b ac
cepted as part of life. Minds wer shocked to numb
ness by the awful wastage of human life in con
nection with th war, but th Industrial toll of life
and limb in the United States i annually equal to
the los untained by American in battle in France.
Safety appliances, devices of all sort for protec
tion of life and limb arc adopted, but the absolute
in protection is not yet provided. Home day the
goal may be reached, but until that time worker
will go on, daily assuming risks that ar part of the
game, flirting with death very minute, because it
is man's work, th world' work, and because in the
end it provide bread and butter, and shelter for
the night. Life may not amount to much, but the
efforts made to sustain it suggest that it is priceless.

AMERICA AND PALESTINE.
One ot the speakerj at the Jewish celebration on
Sunday emphatically disavowed for his people a divided
allegiance in their efforts to aid in the restoration of
Palestine. America, he pointed out, is the land where
ihey found freedom, and the rights to which all men
are entitled. The speaker was born in Russia, and
endured all the oppression sustained by the Jews in
their unhappy situation under the czar, lie also is
aware of the unpleasant predicament of the Jews in
Russia under the present regime. Having tested of the
loys and privileges oi American citizenship, he has no
thought of forfeiting his present status to join in the
quest of the restoration of Palestine.
But he and hundreds of thousands of others like
him are ready to give good dollars to assist their less
lortnnate brethren to escape from the hard conditions
of life they must now bear, and to begin in Judea the
building up of a new home for an old nation where its
glories were th light of the earth in Solomon's tftne.
That is what Keren lleyesod means. Xo question of
loyalty is involved, only a willingness to help in a prac
tical way to accomplish a great benefit for some Jews
who can not come to the United States.
The Jew has rroved his loyalty to America front
the very first. In colony days, and through the forma
tion of the government, down until today, the Jew has
had a great and honorable share in the work of giving
i he republic it permanence. Immigrants from Russia,
.iich as the speaker referred to, have added tt the in
dustrial and commercial hie oi the nation bv their
energy, real, thrift and othar d!r4lile quahftcdtions.
It is but natural they should burn to help those
escape from the bondage they -e tree itom. and this
voraing does not mean tbry ar !s loyal to the
lOumry of their irptifn. It only metns 'rut thev.

LAND FOR THE LANDLESS VETERAN.
In connection with the debate on the adjusted
compensation bill in the senate Mr. McKary renews
the proposition of reclaimed swamp and logged-off
lands as part of the project for aiding tha ex-service
men. He sets up that in the United State ar 96,
000,000 acres of swamp land and more than 20,000,
U00 acred of arid land. An expenditure of $350,
000,000 will bring all this into use.
The McKary plan is sound enough, if one fea
ture is amply provided for and conditions thoroughly
understood. Young men going on to this land
should be permitted to do so only with the assurance
that they ate to have all the needed help from
the government, that they may not suffer undue
hardship or privation while waiting for the returns
that are to come in the future. It is not necessary
to pauperize them, but equally it is not fair to set
them to draining swamps or depending on irrigation
ditches provided themselves. To bring into service
any of th land that Senator McKary has in mind
requires the initial investment of capital far beyond
the means of the veterans who are expected to
benefit under the plan. The government should pro
vide that capital.
At best the soldier boy will have to wait a con
siderable length of time before he can realize
more than a living from a farm of the nature con
templated by reclamation. He will invest his labor
in the work of making the land tillable, and if he
has grit and ability equal to the task, in time he
will hsve a farm home where he can live in com
fort. To get the big work under way is not his
proper task, however.
Settling such ex-service men as wish to engage
in agriculture on tracts where they may be reason
ably sure of making a living and with an estab
lished future as a reward for industry and thrift ia
worth while. But such settler ehould not be under
any illusion as to the nature of the enterprise they''
are embarking in.

TARIFF AS A POLITICAL ISSUE.
Opponents of the administration are spreading
a propaganda of the most insidious sort against the
tariff measure, and hope by this means to gather
enough adherents to the cause of free trade to gain
control of congress. The Manufacturers Record, pub
lished at Baltimore, representative organ of the in
dustrial interests of the south, says the "prosperity
and primacy of America is threatened by the wan
ton, vicious propaganda of the free traders," and
It is said the republican party will lose the
lections if it passes the tariff bill. It will be
snowed under if it does not. The emergency
tariff act has saved more than one whole state
from ccneral bankruptcy. Informed men know
it. The Underwood law had this country in the
throes of. the worst industrial panic it had ever
known when the great war intervened to coun
teract Its influence. And If the Underwood law is
permitted to remain on the statute books, again
will the soup houses be the Meecas in our cities.
Let politicians beware lest they mistake the
houtin of some larg newspapers as the voice
of th people. The eleetions show that ths peo
ple, in fact, are doing their own thinking, And
on of th things they ar thinking is that a
tongreaa which fails to prott them against th
niest menacing- enmpetltlon they hav vr
known is a worthies congr, too cowardly or
uninttlint to warrant further support.
When the people come to understand what is in
volved in the tariff, and whst the interests are that
seek to defeat it. the verdict will soon be reaehed
in favor of the measure. The big isiue is: Shall ifw
the American market be kept for American prod
uru, er will it he opened to the world? Ar we in
terested in providing jobs for Ameriean workmen,
or ar we to make certain that English end C!r
! nuns ar employed, regard! of our own"

I'pon all th people, and they called
it th Ech-Ctimmin luw. Later It
wa discovered that th government
had forgotten to put In th contract
that Farmer John was to conduct
his farming operations economically
or that he was to keep th weed
out of th crop, or that. If th farm
wu an Irrigated one, that he was
to water th crop t th right time,
and in fact thut a lot or details
And then our mind got sidolrack-
d over the sugar tariff, and w
remembered that our good and
beneficent legislators had Just raised
the tariff on sugar to J-.30 per ion
pound. Now there ar about '.'60
pounds of sugar mad from a ton
of bts, snd that means thut the
tariff raises the pric of tho sugar
in a ton of beat lU:0g. It muat do
that or, other thing being equal,
we would import th sugar for that
much loss: or to put it the other
way around, somebody could, or wo
wouldn't need the tariff wall to stop
them. But, at any rate, somebody
that buys augur pays the 16.08.
Naturally that must hslp the manu
facturer which ia fair enough, and
we are glud about that but we are
thinking about some fallow who
bought beet land and devoted all hia
tim to hard work, and soma way
the Rtli -Cummin law didn't func
tion in his cas and he didn't muk
much money because the reorgani
zation of business forced the price
of beetn from $12 to 15, and so he
got to Htudying and wondered if the
people paid $8. 0-8 mor for the sugar
In bis ton of beets because of tho
tariff wall, and th government wa
getting the SS.08 a ton on the im
ported sugar, and w were importing
two-thirda of what we consumed,
how much it would help him if th
government would divide the $6.0
with him. And he didn't want all of
it. either, just say about $2 a ton
bonus. That would leave the gov
ernment still M a ton winner on
each ton raised, and Mr. Beet Raiser
wouldn't ask for any guarantee on
his $100 an acre land, and he i
wouldn't form himself Into a, cor
poration and water the stock, at. $2firt
an acre; and there wouldn t ne any
on crazy enough to loan him $150
an acre on It anyway: and anyway
If he didn't keep the weeds down,
and water the beets, and hoe them,
and do all the other work necessary
to raisin r a crot). why, of course,
he wouldn't raise a crop, and, of!
course, if he didn't raise a crop the
government, wouldn't have to pay .
him any $2 a ton bonus--and any-,
way, if he didn't raise any beets, and ;
the people still had to pay so."
more for 260 pounds of sugar and
the government collected $6.08 from
the Cubans and the rest of tho other
foreign sugar-raising countries how
did that help him if he couldn't raise
beets and malt a good living at it '.'
And. besides, if the government did
this it wouldn't take any of the
henefits away from the manufactur
ers as the result or tne ". wu
Of course, as we said at the. be
ginning, w are "iuat restrospecting"
and wondering what would happen
if farming, the basic foundation of
all prosperity in the industries of
the nation, was looked after and
guarded and insured prosperity, in
something like tha ame manner that
is exercised when om other lines
of endeavor cry hard time. And we
wonder why some bright senator or
(.ongressman doe not rise up and
champion the ckiiso of the bet
rsiser and Insure htm a guarantee
I that he can meet Interest payments.

Don't think of Nokol
as a mechanism
a heating service
that rids you forever of
coal furnace drudgery
There are two things that Nokol
does for the home it serves: it rids
the home forever of the entire
drudgery of furnace attendance,
and substitutes clean, even, auto
matic heat for uncertain, uneven
heat with its attendant grime from
coal and ashes.
Nokol is a heating service just as
electric light is a lighting service;
both depend on perfected mechan
ism, but the owner need not think
about the Nokol mechanism any
. more than he docs about the elec
trie light mechanism.
Make up your mind to have a real
heating service next winter. The
comfort to you will be worth many
times the small initial expense.
That's the experience of more than
six thousand home owners who
now enjoy Nokol's heating service.
The Nokol Heater burns oil. in any type of
heating plant, instead of coal. It can be in
nulled iit a few hours. Controlled by a ther
mostat, it consumes only the amount of fuel
nectssarv to maintain the temperature desired.
It operates automatically.
There arc mso to 170 installation in Omaha. A
list of users will gladly be furnished you. Some tf
your friends are among the owners. See the in
stallation in our oifiii at 17th and Howard St'cel".
WE GUARANTEE ABSOLUTE SATISFACTION OR
WILL REMOVE THE BURNER AND RE FUN 11
YOUR MONEY. Incidentally, we have never yet had
to remove a Nokol.
