THt BOIDIKH AJSD THE TL AG
Brigadier General Fuoston, noted
for his bluntnoss, has been doing some
exceedingly plain talking to certain
eastern editors wbo have ben criti is
lng the administration for sanctioning
the action of a court martial which
inflicted a penalty upon a private sol
dier Tor attending an anarchist meet
ing and loudly cheering the tirades of
the speaker against the federal gov
ernment. The facts in the case have
been perverted and exaggerated in the
news reports and General FuuHton
has done a service by insisting that
the record be kept straight.
It appears that William Buwalda,
a private In the engineering corps of
the army, attended an anarchist meet
ing, addressed by Emma Goldman, at
San Francisco and warmly applauded
her abuse of the government and con
gratulated her. Commenting on the
criticism made by eastern papers and
by socialist orators, General Funston
Just why the soelaliHts are tearing their
hair over the matter I am unable to un
derstand, as the meeting In question was
not one for the discission of socialistic
views, but a violent tlrude. pure and sim
ple, by the well-known Emma Uoidtnan,
against all government and particularly
that of tho Vnited States, to which
Buwalda had on eveiy one of hla revet al
enlistments solemnly sworn allegiance.
With It all wus a scurvy and lying at
tack on the army and navy. Anil thU
man sat there In uniform and applauded
time and again, while his government wu.
denounced and his comrades called hired
murderers, and at the close warmly whook
hands with the speaker and expressed his
sympathy with her views. Any man who
cannot appreciate that this conduct con
stituted a grave military offense, In
finitely worse than desertion, has some
thing wrong in hi mental make-up, and
should make haste to consult a specialist.
The record shows that the military
authorities were particularly careful
In their trial of Buwalda. The court
martial was composed of thirteen of
ficers, none of whom was below the
rank of captain. Buwalda was repre
sented by counsel and a stenographic
report of Emma Goldman's speech was
submitted in evidence and it was
shown that Buwalda was not only fa
miliar with the contents of the speech,
but had attended other anarchistic'
meetings and had acquainted himself
with, tho views of the anarchists and
had taken pains to ingratiate himself
with Miss Goldman and thoso asso
ciated with her.
Thinking peoplo will agree with
General Funston. The first duty ot a
soldier is absolute and unqualified!
obedience and loyalty to the govern
ment to which he has sworn alleg
iance. Ills service is voluntary and If
he can not approve of the government
it is his privilege to get out of tho
army. He cannot serve his govern
ment and at the same time give en
couragement and support to an asso
ciation that Is formed for tho cardinal
purpose of opposing all government
and all law. There is no room in the
American army for anarchists. The
army stands abovo all other things for
loyalty to the government, and every
soldier must needs be an uncompro
mising foo to the enemies of govern
ment. HCIEHT1FIC h'AHMWG'
The Canadian farmers are appar
ently going through tho experience
of this country in the days when the
"college-bred" farmer was Bcorned and
ridiculed by the man who works in tho
fields. The Toronto Globe contains
a dispatch from Guelph, Ontario, tell
ing of the experience of a young ex
pert from the Canadian department
of agriculture who was lecturing on
"Alfalfa" before a meeting of farmers.
A weather-beaten listener to tho ad
dress wanted information. The dis
"Young man, did you ever plow a sli
acre field?" Tha man on tho platform
hesitated. The other continued. "Did
you ever pitch hay or load manure, or
run a binder, or milk cows twice a day,
seven daya a week?" The volley stag
gered the younger man. He murmured
that he did drive a manure spreader Just
tha other day up at Ottawa, and had
done a little of all the things mentioned
at ono time or another. The old man,
whose questions had been earnestly put,
relapsed Into a silence which might only
be Interpreted as expressing dissatisfac
tion for anything the speaker might say
since he waa not a practicing farmer.
In this country practically all of the
former prejudice against the "theo
retical" farmers has disappeared. By
experience the farmers have learned
that man may know all about soil, the
germination of seed, the adaptibllity
ot certain lands for special crops and
a great deal of very valuable informa
tion of that kind without having ever
been yanked through a stumpy field
by a team ot obBtlnate mules. Prac
tical farmers are heeding the advice
and instruction of young men sent out
from the college laboratories, and the
result is a constant and persistent im
provement in agricultural conditions.
Tilt JOXAH STOHt.
There will be regret over the dis
position by a Mltsourl court of a case
In which the merits of the story of
Jonah swallowing the whale was In
dispute. A minister ot the old school
had agreed to pay $5,000 toward the
maintenance of one ot the colleges of
Missouri, but when the collector came
around, refused to pay his subscrip
tion on the ground that the college
taught heretical doctrine and bad re
jected tha Jonah story. The college
brought suit for tha collection of the
full amount, and now the case has
been compromised. The minister sur
renders a portion of his convictions
and pays tha college f 2,500 ot his sub
scription, while the college professors
give up halt the subscription and go
on teaching that the Jouah and the
whale story was an apocryphal yellow
yarn conceived in the fertile brain of
some sensational fakir in the days of
our antediluvian ancestor.
Tha average person will be glad that
the college sot tha 12.600. as it doubt-
less needs the money, but it Is too
bad to hitre the preacher turn his back
on Jonah. For a great many centuries
Jonah nnd th whale have furnished
a test of credulity, if not of faith.
Ministers havo fought over ' it and
hililte.il experts have found in it a sub
ject for contention and dlsputement.
Just when tho proposition was up
where it held a promise of final settle
ment by a Missouri court, where
"bliow me" is the first paragraph of
all laws and rules of conduct, tho min
ister weakens and leaves the issue in
doubt. All that was needed to settle
the question Irrevocably and for all
time was the dictum of a Missouri
Judge, and that has been made impos
sible by a compromise. It Is painfully
unfortunate that In a contest in the
courts between Mammon and Credul
ity, Mammon should get the decision.
Whaling stories, like that of Jonah,
are getting scarcer all the time, fading
Into the gentle oblivion of the world's
mental tollectlon of attic furnishings,
and the pity Is that the contest was
not fought to a finish.

Although The Bee Is not a demo
cratic organ, It cannot pass by in
silence tho uncalled for slurring of two
eminent Nebraskans in a recent issue
of the Chicago Tribune Juut because
of its different politics from the vic
tims. An article contributed over the
name of Willis J. Abbott, Mr. Bryan's
personally retained publicity agent,
speaking of the possibilities for na

The really significant and Impressive f.ict
ubuut tho up-state situation Is the atmos
phere of hopelessness that seems to mark
the feeling of democrats everywhere. A
few months aso there was a general at
mosphere of elation, there was talk about
a "democratic year," and the "rainbow
chasers" were hard at work. Tiiey are
Idle now. There Is no more talk about
a "democratic year" In New York state.
Practically all that Is to be heard la acad

What tho democrats of the state are
actually doing, so far as Albany Is an In
dex, la sitting down and discussing the out
look of the next campaign with Bryan as
a candidate, In much the same frame of
mind as If the state democracy waa about
to be seized upon by the mysterious and
fatal African "sleeping sickness," which to
them scums to share not a few symptoms
with malignant iiryanlsm. There Is no
talk of a cure and no notion of a recovery,
but over tho whole party, Irrespective of
faction, and upon each Individual demo

of a liryan blight, which brings an atmos

It is the "dead hand," stretched out and
likely to fasten upon the state ticket, as
well as the national, that seems to have
deprived the up-atate democrata of even
the power of protest. They see It coming,
they realize Its effect, but about their only

new field of endeavor, but one who will
soberly though firmly finish up the busi

radicalism. These things true democracy

RATI".' AD "r.ltROR OF l.tW."
Important Itttllau of the ( Ircnlt C'onrt
It takes years and doaens of ults to es
tablish the meaning of any important
statute. The new railroad law is young,
and the courts hive but taK'n up the
task of Interpreting It.
Tlio decision of the circuit coiitt at St.
Paul hi what may be called the Stackyard
rases In ono respect is very far reaching.
The court sets aside an order of the com
inlsMon that was based on on "error of
luw." The error e'onslated In Judging of
the rcasomihh ness ot a charge in connec
tion with other charges and rates. The
commission thought It had the authority
unili r the laiv to reduce the terminal
charse of 12 a far for transporting cattle
to the Crilon stockyard to II u car be
cause the total of the rates nnd chars; s In
the case ef any shipment was too high.
The curt says that .n ciiy c::mi lal it to the
commission the question of the justness
and reasonable nets of each sc gicg.ur d rate
must be determined by itself."
Tho court adds:
It is not Indlspensible In the coi rccil in I y
the federal court of an error cf law hit)
which the commission has fallen whereby
a specific rate Is made unreasonably lov
that the aggrieved party should prove that
the effect of this unrt asonahlo low rate
wll make Its entire business unprofitable.
It is enough thnt th - reduced rate Is unjust
If, then, the segregated ti rinlmi! charge
of the I'nlon Stockyard's company v;is not
unreasonable for the service rendered, th .;
fact that other rates are tin i easonaoie
and make the total excessive, could not be
taken Into consideration by the cun ni'sion.
Let that part of the total which is dc.niel
unreasonable be singled out for attack,
and the commission will have tho power
to order a proper reduction.
Whether the rate law, as It now stands,
requires tho segregation of' rates and
charges. Is clearly a question of construc
tion. Tho language of the act cannot be
said to be absolutely plain on the point, 1
anil If tho commission fell Into un error
of law with reference to it, lay readers
of the act will scarcely wonder at the cir
cumstance. Of course, the supreme court
