DlaJlke far Hrysu is . plvml ik only txuumva gramrid the j j iv.lty luayar and the former gov ' termir live btdwa-un fl'rna, Bringing Bmtia to Time. President Taft still believes in the possibility of bringing Unssla to a recognition and observance of the treaty of 1S.12 and, evidently from bis foreign affairs meRaage to con gress, deprecates the advisability of proceeding as. yet to abrogate that compact, lie i.ays the State deport ment is In negotiation with the Rus sian foreign ' ministry to effect a "clearer' understanding and con struction . of the treaty" and the "modification of any existing RubrIhu regulations depriving our citizens of their rights under the Iresty," ad ding: I believe that the governmrnt of Rua.ila la aridreaalng Itaelf eeiloiiKly to the need of chana-lng the preitent practice under the treaty, and that sufficient progress ha been made to JiiHlIfy the continuance of theee conference in the hope that there may noon be removed any Justifies- tlon of the complaints of treaty violations now prevalent in this ounti). The president Is. of course, im pressed with the spirit and purpose of such demonstrations of protest against Kussian Intolerance and infi delity as wero voiced in that Carnegie hall niHsg meeting by representative citizens of this country, and he can not be Insensible to the perfidy of Russian diplomacy, so that this mes sage at this time Is fraught with weighty significance. Since the ne gotiations with Russia are on It seems that they should be allowed to run tbelr course in the hope of pro ductive results. Yet In any new transaction with Russia the United States must be guided by its past ex perience with that nation. That ex perience has been, particularly In the rase of this treaty, all promise and no performance by Russia. We have little business continuing the treaty In force without positive knowledge that It Is. going to amount to some thing, that Russia means to live up to Its obligations and our rights under the compact, a thing It has utterly and defiantly Ignored for nearly half a century. It seems to us that President Schurman of Cornell In that New York mass meeting put the Issue rather patly In these few words: It Is we, ouraelvea. and not RuRiila, that stand before the forum of the world on a cliarse of infidelity to our own princi ple and contempt to otir own rltlsenshtp. If there Is no other way of vindicating our honor, then I say let the treaty be abrogated. That la unanswerable. Doubtless, however, that Is exactly what J'resl dent Taft has la mind in wishing to consummate this final effort at en forcing, treaty obligations. The ques tion has been raised, Suppose the treaty Is abrogated, then what? Well, we at least have our national honor left and are la a better position to look all our own , cltUensl and the world In the face, knowing that, If we cannot compel Russia to observe Ita sworn duty with respect to Amer ican citizens under a treaty, we can, at least, prove that we are no longer, under the terms of a solemn compact, a party .to aucb perfidy. Abrogating the treaty, even with Its Impllcatloa of denying similar rights to Russian subjects over here, may not give us all we want, but It will give us out-self-respect and our honor and set a very stern object lesson to Russia. Time for Sober Speech. ' On the heela cf the news that the McNamaraa had acknowledged the guilt of their diabolical crimes, a scurrilous-printed sheet was circu lated In which, among other similar anarchistic utterances, appeared this; To hell with the courts. To hell with polities and politician. When vapid Intellects emit such dangeroua doctrine, Is It not time for eminent men to talk less of the treachery and chicanery of courts and Judges and restrict even their denun ciation of other officeholders chosen by the people? Enough has trans pired in this country of late to warn men of law-abiding sense against the tendency of extreme condemnation of public men and authority, and partic ularly of the Judiciary. No one need forego Jils right of fslr and sane crit icism, but unless men of influence, men whose words are listened to, of perronal following, are guarded in what they aay, there hi little ground for scolding the crank or crook for w hat he may say or do. Cry for More Irrif ation. A commanding cry comes from the National Irrigation congress, in ses sion at Chicago. It is a cry lor more actual Irrigation and not so much for the machinery of irrigation. The complaint is made that bureaucratic redtape has obstructed the flow of water, and therefore retarded the set tlement, or land in portions of the west, where needs and conditions are ripe ror development. Thhj is a matter or considerable im portance and should be put up Imme diately to the proper authorities at Washington, ir the machinery Is out or kilter, ir It Is clogged with an overplus of bureaucratic teal, the ad ministration probably will lose little time In correcting conditions, but t is not surprising that In the detail operation of auth a complex system as that of reclamation obstacles of this sort should arise and be kept quiet for a t!m?. Nearl C.000.000 acres of lanl sre available tor Irrigation where there are no jwtilera; it is said. Wrtainly this tfbonlal VUt 1- .and If thia ia aa a '-curate mMincann or ia i'iw it la high tin- U imi pubJitiy airwd. There is n Urn ia rh grral, w yrk t4 building up thld western country for Idle bureaucracy. Another good point mado In the report of tho 1 rrlnat Ion congress Is that against the fake irrigation promoter. This scoundrel Bhotilil be brought speedily to an accounting for his Imposition, not only upon cer tain crciluioi.s investois, but upon the govern ni;iit. Itself. The Los Angeles Election. The result of the I.os Aneeles elec tion may be interpreted In several ways, the most plausible lissl of ac count Inr for it hcliiK- that th ncmil of that city are not so thoroughly in oculated with social discontent as ap peared at the time of the primary election, when Job Harrlman, the so cialist candidate for mayor, received n vote that seemed to presage his ul timate election. Not even the social ists, themselves, claimed that all the votes cast for Harrlman were reels- ternd by members of the party. By far the greater portion of tho Harrl man vote came from that Vlempnt nf society who seized that opportunity to express dissatisfaction with certain conditions that prcVail In Los An geles, or sympathy, with 'organized labor. Tho labor unions of Is An geles voted for Harrlman as a protest against the policy of certain An. geles citizens, whose influence largely nominates the affairs of the commu nity. This was don without in any way committing tiie organized labor movement of the United State to th program of .the socialist party, and was so understood and accepted by political students. The result of the election may ,be accepted as Indi cating that the voters of Los Angelos were content with the protest regis tered at the primary and did not care to go to the extent of turning the af fairs of the city over to the cmitmi of the radical element represented by iisrnmnn. Beyond this Is the further fact that a condition exists in Los Angeles which still requires careful attention on the part of the neonin nf that city. Tho election on the outside hna tin special significance. It was watched wan great interest becauso of its close connection with the sensational developments In tho McNamara case, but It wa only an eDlsode in th combat between the friends and foes or organized labor In tho "Cltv nf th Angels." What effect the disclos ures or the last few days will have on the future of this unfortunate strife is yet to be determined, but thore Is reason to hope that the extremists on both sides will be sent to the rear and that the recent events will have some direct Influence In bringing about an adjustment or the differ ences between emnlover and - - va ill Ployed that have made Los Angeles notorious ror the last fev years. The Increase in the floating debt of the state is not an indication that Ne braska's resources are Insufficient to take care or the expenses of main taining the Institutions or the com monwealth. It merely means that the legislature made, appropriations without providing. revenue to meet them. ' Champ Clark says ror Jhree years he has labored for democratic har mony. "Prepare to stand aside." "Let Littleton get off the steel com mittee." "Mr. Bryan, as usual, goes off half-cocked.". And see how sig nally he has succeeded. Complaint is made that the Mc Ardle law governing the movement of street cars is a dead letter. , But that is not unique. Several, other dead-letter' laws might be found in even a casual examination of the statute book. Now will be the very best time to get all the legs! obstacles removed from the pathway of the city to pur chase the water plant. If there ia any reason why the bonds may not b Bol(l this is the time to disclose It. Though bis friends may desert him, Clarence Darrow, who Insists he has always given his best ability to organized labor and the poor, says. "I can stand alcne."

LINCOLN. Neb.. Dec. .-To the Editor of The Uee: Of the many crimes com mitted by superstition against humanity, Ita teaching that woman brought aln Into this little world is the greatest of tlirin all. Like a gigantic Juggernaut this atrocious libel upon the mother of the race ha been rolling down the age, leaving in Its trail tear, sorrow, crushed heart and blasted hope. There super stition reached the aupreme height of its tremendous power for evil. The wither- Ing effects . of Its inquisition upon the hearts and hopes of mankind sink Into Insignificance as compared with tho In calculable wrong resulting to woman, and through her to her children, from the as sertion that her disobedience brought sin Into the world. Thus was poison thrown Into the very fountain of life. Scientific psychology makes this plain. It shows that the declaration, hitherto received by many as from divine author ity, that sin entered the world through woman's fault, has degraded woman by lessening her self-respect, paralyzing her will, dwarfing her intellect and causing her to feel a sense of guilt in the very fact of her existence. For thousands of year this teaching has blocked her prog ress toward economic and political equal ity with man, and is today responsible for no small part of the opposition to equal suffrage. For ages woman has been told. In substance, that she Is a lower order of being, an after-thought of the Maker of the worlds, and that phe Is. In effect, the creator of sin. since only through her disobedience whs it possible for sin to enter the world, making neces sary the sacrifice of a part of the God head In order to propitiate Him and ap pease His wrath. , Scientific ' psychology shows that this libel and its correlative ideas have had aa effect Immeasurably harmful upon the sensitive, impressionable minds of the mothers of tho race, and through them upon their children, resulting In evils hitherto unsuspected by the world. It shows that a really free humanity can never be born until every vestige of this false belief has been erased from the minds of both men and women. Matilda Joslyn Gage, hi her great work, "Woman, Church and State," has shown In detail the sufferings of women under this su perstition In ages past. Kvery person who believes in economic and political equality for women should read Mrs. Gage's great contribution to the cause. F. J. IRWIN. Destruction of Horse liy Fire. COUNCIL BLUFFS. Dec. 2-To the Editor of The Bee: I write this short essay for Tho Bee as my closing labor as patriotic Instructor for Abe Lincoln posr, uranil Army or the Republic, Council Bluffs, for 1911. I wish herewith to start a popular agitation In favor of fireproof fculldings for horses and other domestic animals. The smoke of their torment ascendeth forever. It Is strange that the press, the pulpit and rostrum are silent on this subject, which is one of gigantic import. Knough horses and other animals are burned up every year In th'.a nation to keep every widow and orphan in happy comfort. The horse carries our burdens. He also saved the union. I saw a horse one evening upon which General Curtis' scout had Just returned. One look satis fied me, and I did not glance at the poor quadruped again! I spare your readers the description of him. May not these burnings of horses and other animals draw some gigantic retri bution upon town and country some teaching from an eye that never sleeps from the source of Intelligence and true advancement? Now, let us all demand that this evil should cease; that no animal's life shall he placed in Jeopardy In fire traps. ,Who,illl be life first hotel proprietor to ".advertise r rhe fireproof Ktable for all domestic animal? I also request teachers to, talk of this matter to the children. A powerful In fluence would thus be commenced. Tell the children also to question their parent on the subject, and so get the latter thoroughly Interested. Children can ask Vhelr parents , many questions about a stable fire when an account of one is published In the dally paper. I request the children to not let up on such ques tionings till their parents become not only awakened concerning the matter, but anxious to act. . , May not providence withhold rain for Wise purposes? , It is inly the most short sighted ' persons thst do not reflect on the dealings of heaven in the material affairs of humanity. And now. ye adult readers and ye children, you know that thousands of horses will be destroyed by fire In this country in the next few years. Let your opinion on this subject be known wherever you are. Use that lunguage Which no ear will misconstrue. And so I must leave the subject with you. J. M. HOLADAY. Patriotic Instructor.
