PRESIDENT HARDING'S "DRY" WARNING,
A tightening up of prohibition law enforcement
ftll along the line is jiromixi-d by development in
A recent cabinet meeting devoted iti time to con.
nldcrlng the effect of the moral fiber of the people
of the open diarcapect for the law aaina intoxlcat-
intr liquor. The very next day the nation was pro
video" with a Hriking example of laxity in thii re
gar I by the celebration of the Army-Navy game at
A White 1oune pokeman, who directly rep-
mi nted President Harding, utatcd after the cabinet
me. ting that prohibition enforcement wa a qucation
artly more important than om have thought. It
wax intimated that the prcaident would make a
(evolution in the near future a to what wan going
on in the way of luw violation that would he astound
ing to the country. The int treat of the federal gov
irnment, it wa declared by Mr. Harding' apokes
mnn, lay in the undermining of the moral ene of
the people by flagrant violation of the law. An ap
peal to the conacience of the American people waa
one of the moves under consideration.
.Secretary of the Treasury Mellon, in whose de
partment the duty of enforcement lie, hold that
the prohibition office i doing effective work ao fur
a it can, hut that if it wan at least three time a
large it ktill would fall far short of accomplishing an
effective check to the making, sale and use of in
toxicant. He believe the law can be enforced ef
fectively only with the co-operation of the great body
of citizenship. '
Government reports show that whisky, wine and
other intoxicating liquor are flowing in torrent over
fcll border of the United States. "Dry" enforce
ment official are deluged with offer of bribes and
JiUi-.fi money. Charles A. Gregory, the retiring pro
hibition director for Illinois, i authority for the
ctory that he wa offered $5,000,000 in bribe during
hi year in ollice. His predecessor resigned after
Jive month, declaring that "the job was never in
tended for a sane person." While many effort have
been made to clear the service of men susceptible
to bribery, doubtless there still remain some who will
wink at infraction of the law. There have indeed
been instances of men retiring from the prohibition
service who later turn up as member of some book
legging ring, UHing the knowledge they have gained
to guide their avoidance of justice.
"Dry" leaders have a duty at this time to advance
practical proposals for securing stricter enforcement
of the law. If the fault i not in lax enforcement it
may be found in poor organization of the work and
in lack of co-operation between the various public
officers assigned to the apprehension and punishment
of those who have defied the law. The question is
sure to be raised whether or not the people are in
earnest about prohibition. The Association Against
the Prohibition Amendment, which announces that it
is pleased with the prospect of stricter enforcement,
may have the idea that such a thirst might be
created that the law would be repealed. "Dry" advo
cate will likewise be pleased by sterner measures.
Heavier sentences for law violators may be expected
to accomplish some good.
Prohibition is the law of the land, and as such
should be enforced. President Harding' note of
warning come at a time when the violation of the
Volstead law is widespread. The subject is one for
grave consideration and firm action.
NEBRASKA SPUDS GO TO SEA.
When you get to Omaha you are about a far
from tide-water in any direction as you can get on
the American continent. When you reach Kearney
you are half way between the Atlantic and Pacific
oceans. Therefore, while there is little choice between
the oceans, except that commerce has for untold cen
turies followed the flow of the rivers, Nebraskans
are glad to get some attention from the Pacific. Our
boy have done well in the navy, and some have
sailed on merchant vessels, and now potatoes grown
in tl.ii stutc are to be used in feeding the company
on .Shipping Hoard vessels that sail from western
Commis-sioner Plummer of the board noticed Ne
braska spuds on exhibition at the Spokane show,
and was so well impret.-cd with their appearance and
quality that he ordered the purchasing agent to buy
several carloads of the tubers to be used in feeding
passenger and crew on the liner tho board oper
ates. He might have made the order for a few ship
loads, and it would have been tilled as handily.
A a mutter of fact the Nebraska potato is win

OMAHA-FRISCO LINE NEEDED.
Utah announces itself in favor of continuing con
trol of the Central Pacific by th Southern Pacific.
Idaho and Wyoming, whose interests in the trans
portation service involved far exceeds that of Utah,
record themselves as favoring the transfer of the
"C. P." to the Union Pacific.
This in a sense measure the relative merits of
the case. Not only are the local shipper, those of
the states that will be affected because they are
traversed by the lines, directly at stake, but shippers
in general are concerned. When all the Pacific lines
were under unified Hsrriman control, freight waa
hauled across the continent via Omaha; under the
Huntington control, as now exists, freight is diverted
over the longer and more difficult route via El Paso
and New Orleans.
When the Pacific lines were projected the one
plan was to have a continuous line from the Missouri
river to San Francisco bay. That two companies
were formed to carry out this plan now appears to
have been a serious mistake; then it was looked upon
as a mean to hasten completion of the railroad
across the continent. California's civic pride was
engaged in the work on the west end, over the Sierra
Nevada mountains to the junction at Promontory
Huntington's vision went a little farther, though.
No sooner wa the Central Pacific Joined with the
Union Pacific in 1869, than Huntington set about to
create the Southern Pacific. When that line was
carrying traffic over the El Paso-New Orleans route,
he began the neglect of the Central Pacific, so that
when Harriman picked up the piece, he found a sad
state of affairs.
Harriman it wa who revived the Central Pa
cific, bringing it up from the acrapheap to which
Huntington had consigned it. Harriman built the
I.ucin Cut-Off, and obviated the difficulties that lay
around the head of Great Salt Lake; Harriman took
the kinks out of the line in Nevada, boring tunnels,
bridging chasms, crossing the Homboldt river again
and again, until he had from Ogden to Truckee a
fairly straight and level road. Harriman would
have tunneled the Sierra Nevada had he lived.
Nono of these things were good for the Southern
Pacific, but they all were good for the Central Pa
cific and the Harriman system. If tho order now
goes out to restore the Central Pacific to inde
pendence, or to Union Pacific control, the original
plan of a direct line from Omaha to San Francisco
will be restored, with the benefits that come from
the constructive genius of E. H. Harriman, and the
finest piece of trunkline railway in the world will bo
at the service of the public. That is what the west
ern states really want.

liypU) ami Comments on
ONE ADVANCE IN TURKEY.
Our attention is fastened on the announcement
that Caliph Abdul Medjid Effcndi, just elected to be
sultan of Turkey and appointed head of Islam, has
abolished the harem. When he reached the palace
in Constantinople he found it occupied by more than
four-score houri and the like, left behind by his
predecessor. Under the old rule of procedure he
would have selected such of them as he felt might fit
into his domestic scheme, and have the rest sown up
into sacks and dropped into the Golden Horn.
Times have changed, it seems, and the new head
of state and church simply dismissed the abandoned
harem beauties, to be cared for as best they may
find accommodations. He brings his own wife, with
their children, to occupy the seraglio, and in the state
of well established European gentlemen he will
maintain his simple home. This will revive some of
the earlier doctrine of the prophet
While Mohammed did not exactly frown on plu
rality of wives, he did not encourage the practice.
He listed Solomon among the Wise Men of all times,
but not on account of hi adventure in matrimony;
rather, it was in spite of his home life that the He
brew monarch won a high place in the estimation of
the founder of Islam.
Many customs, centuries old, affecting women
have been abandoned of late years in Turkey. It is
no longer immodest to go unveiled; women may be
seen in public places, are even permitted to assume
duties once forbidden them, and now that monogamy
is given the prestige that flows from the example
of the head of the church, the western status of
woman may be put down as fairly established in
Turkey, if nowhere else in the east.
The crime wave is evidently receding. At any
rate, police in different parts of the country have
bagged quite a few bandits of late.

Radio Report From Congress.
From the Waahlnfton Blar.
Broadcasting the proceedings of
congress, which Is proposed and for
which preparations are now being
made, will Involve wide possibilities
and some peculiar problems. A radio
report of tho proceedings of the
house and senate would undoubtedly

people of the country, and yet doubt
les there are some, probably a large
number, who would prefer song and
stories and Instrumental music, and
perhaps market report and weather
bulletins. ltoll calls, for Instance.
will hardly be particularly Inspiring,
and often documents are read that do
not hold the attention even of those
on the floor of the house or senate.
It may he questioned whether there
are more than a score of people tn
Washington, outside of those In
charge of Its publication, who read
the OongreHHlnnfll Record dally "from
klvver to klvver." Another point to
be considered is the fact that the
two houses are in session simultane
ously. How will the the radio waves
be divided between them?
Evidently the post of radio editor of
the congressional proceedings will be
one of great Importance, and will call
for the exercine of unusual Judgment
in selection, and for a strict nonpartl
sanHhlp. InfiHmuch as the proposal
Is to have the? very voice of those

that Important and intereHtlng
speeches are being made slmultane
oiinly at the two ends of the capital.
Will the house report be sent out at
one vibration and the senate at an
other to avoid Interference?
Obviously, the radio report of con
gressional proceeding will have to
be confined tn big Items, presidential
speeches or addresses by distinguished
foreigners, or perhaps Important
talk by eminent members on vital
(luestions nnd at critical points In do

ger of blockading the broadcast ser
