OMAHA, May 12,-To the Editor ot The
Bee: I see In the puwic prints that the
president of tho North German Lloyd
steamship company has added his voice
to the protest going up because the
United States has provided that Its own
vessels engaged In coastwise commerce
may uso the Panama canal toll-tree. This
Is an echo of the cry that went up when
tho United States determined that foreign
owned vessels could not engage In com
merce between American ports. It Is
also a part of the protest ot the foreign
shipowners against the effort of the
United. States to keep a vestige of the
American flag floating over ocean com
merce. If the democratic congress should re
cede at tho behest of Great Britain and
Germany, and put a toll charge against
American coasting vesscts using the ca
nal, It will be a direct tribute to the
greatest combination of money-grubbers
the world has even known. It may not
be generally known, but one reason why
the American flag has so nearly van
ished from the high seas Is because
Americans can not compete with the Bri
tish and German vessel owners because
of the higher wages that must be paid to
American sailors. Tho British Vessel
Owners' association pays Its seamen from
J12.W to $15 per month; the mate ot a
British-owned ocean tramp-steamer will
get from $30 to $50 per month, and the
captain from $90 to $125. Street car con
ductors and railroad brakemen In Omaha
are paid as well as tho captains who serve
the great British shipping trust
Other reasons might be cited In sup
port ot the provisions ot the canal law
as passed under ex-Proeldent Taft's ad
ministration, but this alone ought to be
enough to retain its favor for American
coastwise commerce. It 1b unfair to put
the American sailors at the disadvantage
of having to compete with the cheap
labor that mans the British and German
vessels. OLD FOGY.

OMAHA, May 18,-To tho Editor of Th
Bee: Some or the -crazy advocates of
woman suffrage say that suffrage to
women will settle for all time to com all
moral questions. They talk as If sufrmir
for women will be the panacea for all
If such should be the case, why Is tt
that political conditions In Colorado and
California aro as rotten as any place tn
tne united states? if all evils ore go'n
to ne suppressed by having woman suf
frage why s that the saloons and other
places of evil in California run all night?
Even now strenuous efforts are being
made to keep the legislature of that state
from passing a law to compel saloons to
close their doors from 1 a. m. to i a.m.
Why do not the women see to It that the
saloons are controlled In a better manner
than they are now In California?
The saloons are controlled much better
In Nebraska, where we are .not liable to
have woman suffrage for many years to
come and tt is likely that they would be
voted put of Nebraska by the votesof the
men today If the question should be sub
mitted to the men voters. When the
question ot voting tha saloons out of Cali
fornia was before the people of that state
and, the proposition was defeated, it was
claimed that tt would have carried by the
vote of the men, but that the women
beat it by their votes.
It Is all nonsense to talk ot turning the
United States Into a heavenly region by
giving the women the right to vote, which
they largely oppose themselves. I for one
do not believe tn forcing onto them what
they do not ask for and most of them
say they do not want Of course there
are 'tome who are asking for suffrage
who have families, but most of the
leaders In the movement are either slnxle
women, or women who have no family
and of those who neglect their home
Most women are reluctant to mix tn the
dirty pool of politics for they feel that
they will at least In part lose their self
respect Women who mix tn politics even
In school affairs have shown that they
are capable of using dt reputable means
cs well ns men. The erase for woman
suffrage seems to be subsiding as was
shown In Michigan where suffrage was
beaten last tall by only 700 votes and then
last motith by about Z?,C0O.
The great body ot women of tha country
do not want suffrage and I see no use of
forcing onto them what they do not nsc
for. They can do far more good tn he
world outside of politics. So why listen to
the few agitators, for we always n&vo
that kind of people. VOTER-

You will enjoy wearing it.
You may not know when you wear a
Chalmers "Porosknit" Union Suit with
its comfortably closed crotch that what
keeps it from the usual cutting in the
crotch is the way the back is made. No
underwear is much elastic up-and-down
(Just sidewavs). We have inserted a
piece in the back with the elastic direc
tion up-and-down. You may bend or
twist in any position no cutting at
crotch, no binding, no pulling, no
bulging, no gaping.
"Porosknit" is made in all stylesfor
man, for boy. Go to any store where
the genuine Chalmers "Porosknit" is
displayed. Try a few suits.

WEEN pa was it.
J. Mortimer liewls In Houston Post.
These days pa sure looks cheap ana
And he Just goes his way between
The town an' home an' home an' town.
And his eyes mostly lookln' down;
Some children come here t'other day
And we all went out doors to play,
An' we played tag. an' rUn an run,
And we begged dad to Join in the tun,
But he said: "No, sir, none o' that;
I ain't too old, but I'm too fat"
An' then our school teacher come by,
An' so we all dared her to try
An' catch us kids, an' first plie knowed
Bho was a-rUnntn' 'cross the road,
An' back, an' makin' a big fuss
A-tryln to tag one of us;
An' then, the first thing that we knew
Pa was there playin' with us, too..
But ma was standtn' in the door .
A-watchln' htm an' lookln' sore.
Then, he was chasln' of Miss Fharr,
A-puffin' like a choo-choo car,
An' tryln to look glad an' sweet
When a dog between his feet;
Twas Willie Jones' little Mutt:
He thought he was a-ployln', but
Since he done that so doggone quick
An' pa fell like a ton of brick
An' scraped his nose an' made It sore.
That dog don't play tag any more.
An' teacher laughed; and pa got red
An' went Inside, an' mother said
Something to htm when he went by;
But father never blinked an' eye.
Just kept a-goln'; but he's tame
Bonce he played In our taggln' game;
An' mother sno pokes tun at pa.
An he don't say a word to ma;
But pa an' Mutt, ain't friends, you bet
They1 growlin at each other yet.
