a defense surpassing In duration the

outward factories of the military spirit.
Back of them arc the interests which are

war scares help to fatten appropriations
and increase business. A striking illus
tration of tho system of manufactured
war scares for business gain was revealed
by Or. Llebknecht, socialist leader in the
German Reichstag. According to his
statement, which was not substantially
donlcd, the Krupp works, makers of ar
tillery, and Deutsche Waffen Fubrlken,
had resorted to Illicit methods to Induce
French newspapers to arouse an antt-
German Bentlment in France, with the ob
ject of creating an atmosphere which
would facilitate the Increase of arma
ments. The facts were laid before the
German war office and an official In
vestigation confirmed the charge, but it
was passed off as the "Indiscretion of a
subordinate official" of tho Krupps. Not
unlikely the recent alleged "Insult" to a
small party of Germans at Nancy, F-ancs
was part of the war score play. Tet for
three days the alarmist German press
pictured the Nancy fracas as an Insult
to tho nation's honor. Similar mothoda

Urlslum's Political Strike.
The strike of the working classes of
Belgium, under the leadership of tho so
cialists, "-for equal rights at the ballot
box, while only partly successful, carries
a heartening message to workers strug
gling for political equality In other na
tions. Isolated efforts of, similar nature
have been mode In Germany In recent
years, resisted as usual by tho govern
ment and the favored classes. Refusal
of relief by the ministry was directly re
sponsible for the substantial victory of
the socialists In the last German elec
tion. Plural and triple voting based on
properly rights, on of the pillars of
torylam in Great Britain, is to be abol
ished and manhood suffrage ordained by
the passage of the reform measure now
before the House of Commons. In Bel-
glum the franchise, differs only In detail
from the system by which reigning
houses and their favorites entrenched
themselves In power In Burope. Class
distinction Is the taproot of the system.
The masses ore mere, burden bearers, of
no consequence except as soldiers. Slowly,
but surely, the uplifting masses, realizing
their rights, are co-operating more and
more aggressively In demanding equality
in political affairs. It will take a few
years to reach practical results from the
strike In Belgium. Constitutional changes
to give effect to the promised reform will
require from two to three years' time.

OMAHA, April K.-To the Kdltor of The
Bee. The editorial In The Bee entitled,
"Where Is the Money to Come From?"
presents a thought worthy of careful at
tention. During a municipal campaign It Is the
fashion for the candidates to promise
all kinds of good things for the city (If
they are elected) and at the same time
advocato economy and carefully avoid
suggesting any inoreoso of expenses or
taxes. The way the candidates spoon
out honey to their open-mouthed and
credulous hearers Is zoologically, lf not
politically. Interesting, when considered
In connection with the after-clectlon talk
of the same men, In which they say they
aro greatly hindered In every direction
by lack of money, and they cannot ac
complish much unless the people will
consent to an lncr'ense of taxation, and
that one of the chief needs of the city
Is to set the maximum limit of taxation
higher and raise more money.
I wish to Inquire of "the oldest citi
zen," whether ho can give the name
of any person In all the long list of mpn
who have held the chief offices of this
city in the past, who stood firmly fo!
true economy and had no demagogic
streak In him. lf a list of such men
could be made. It would be well to ap
point a memorial day for the purpose of
stopping all ordinary work to do them
Ono of the very Important question-)
demanding consideration by tho charter
commission is, shall wo favor a higher
rate of taxation, or shall we hold It
down and proceed upon the theory that
as the city grows larger and needs to
spend more money the value of the prop
erty within ltt limits will Increase at a
ratio at least as great and proper nssc-
ment will afford the basis for a suf
ficient Increase of funds to meet all rea
sonable demands? Is the city "glttln'
too hlg for Its breeches?"
It iihould not be forgotten that although
Omaha and Douglas county and the
school district of Omaha ore in a sense
separate entitles, yet for most part the
levies of taxes by all three fall on the
same persons nnd property, tax piled, on
It should be borne In mind, also, that
tho prononcss to personal extravagance
and wastefulness which is characteristic,
of American life exerts a constant evil
influence on public affairs.
