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
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.

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.
Destruction of Horse liy Fire.
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.
