The suit Instituted by direction ot

coast stntos for violation of the Sher
man anti-trust law will be wildly
hallfd by democrats clacquirs as
showing tho determination of the
Wilson ndmlnstration to put the
monopolies and trusts out of busi
ness. So far as it goes, tho dissolu
tion suit Is good if tho government
can establish the unlawful acta it al
leges. But it is to bo noticed that

tion, however, Is that It Is brought
as a civil trust, and not as a criminal
prosecution. Did you ever hear dem
ocratic orators declaim that guilt is
personal? Did you over read demo
cratic newspapers decrying civil suits
to dlSBolvo mergers as useless? Did
yoii ever sco democratic platforms in
sisting that tho only way to put tho
trusts out of business is to put trust
magnates behind bars?
But horo is our democratic attor
noy general charging tho Telephone
trust with all sorts of unlawful acts
that defy the ahtl-trust law, but es
tablishing nothing to warrant 'a
criminal prosecution of anybody.

Thirty-seven years ago the American
correspondent of the New York Herald
the distinguished Ohloan, J. A. Mac
Gfthnn, drifted Into the Balkans and
witnessed with his own eyes the horrors
of Turkish tyranny among the Bulgars.
Mr. MacGahan drew such a vivid picture
of Turkish Infamy and cruelty, murdci
and rapine, that the civilized world was
aroused to protest In the name of human
ity. Gladstone, for England, denounced
the barbarity ot the Moslems, and Rus
sia found in the horrors of the situation
ample warrant for the War of WM,
which wrested the Balkan states from
Turkish rule. Thti whirligig .of time
wrought many changes, but none moro
amazing than the transformation of the
Bulgar from an object of sympathy and
admiration to one of world-wide con
demnation. The atrocious inhumanity of
the Moslem toward the Bulgar Is rivaled
If not surpassed by the murderous, lust
ful treatment of aged men, women an6
children by the Bulgar army In Mace
donia and Thrace. Cities and villages
which the Bulgars could not hold ogalnnt
the Serbs and Greeks have been looted
end burned, aged noncombatants mur
dered, men, women and children burned,
crucified or otherwise put to death. Th6
truth of the devastation and death, comes
from too many credible sources tp be suc
cessfully denied. Ministers, consuls and
the king of Greece politically affirm a
series of crimes by the Bulgars shock
ing to every Instinct of humanity. Thus
the bright particular star of the near
cast drops from 'tho firmament of yester
day Into the depths of execration, disaster
Treason, betrayal and disunion have(
ever been the handmaids or, xuraisn
power In Europe. Centuries -ago when
tho hosts of Mahommcd menaced the
capital ot Constantino, rival legions ot
the cross, instead of uniting against the
enemy, wasted their energies In fruitless
religious contention. Thousands ot able-
bodied defenders who should have manned
the city walls were gathered In and about
St Sophia and Induced by pious monks to
swear eternal opposition to a union with,
the Latin church, condemned as the "In
fidel" faith of the west. And while thesw
delirious assemblies were nlioutlng de
fiance at the western church tho Mos
lems were scaling the city walls, soon
thereafter taking possession ot the fa
mous Christian temple which tho follow,
era of Islam havo held undisturbed pos
session of for 600 years. Conditions havo
chnnged In these centuries, but the spirit
of Christian discord and Intolerance Is
hardly less today than when tho legions
of Mahommcd routed tho divided follow
ers of the cross at Constantinople. Tho
difference lies In national rivalries sup
planting religious hatreds. Rivalry and
greed checked Russia at tho gates ot
Constantinople In 1877 and stripped th
victors of fairly won prizes of war,.
Greed and lust for power prompted the
Bulgar king to turn a victorious army
upon his allies, destroying by one stroke
nearly all the good achieved under th
banners of the cross. Never was the
bubble of overweening ambition b
quickly shattered, Kng Ferdinand Is
shorn not only of tho fruits ot victory,
honors as well as territory, but will be
fortunate If he holds his crown. The
crafty Turks saw the opportunities ot
disunion and quickly seized them. Kirk
Klllsseh, Lule Bargus and- Adrlanople,
Bulgaria's prizes of war, once more are
In Moslem hands, with no power In sight
to loosen the grip.
Who Will Put Them Ontf- x
The Ignominious trimming ot Bulgaria,
while yot flush with the wine of vic
tory, excites llttlo commiseration from
any quarter. Like the American fron
tiersman who, on recovering conscious
ness from tho effect of a boast that ho
"cbuld whip any man In tho county," ex
claimed, "Evidently I covered too much
territory." o with Bulgur boast of whip
ping aH creation In the Balkans. Whipped
and stripped on every sido in govern
ment not only sues for peace but begs for
mercy. Had the dashing Envers Bey
passed. Up tho chance of recovering lost
Turkish territory, the great powers would
havo been content to let tne war dogs
chow themselves Into a condition ot help
lessnees. But with Turkey violating the
recently signed Londontreaty, stobUsh
Ing tho Ottoman boundary on a Una from
Enofl. on the Aegean sea, to Media, on
tho Black sea, raises a question ot na
tional honor calling for mighty delicate
treatment Will the powers get together
In o. demand for Turkey's retirement be
hind the treaty llneT It Is possible, but
the probabilities aro against It. Politi
cal considerations Impel the Young Turks
now In powor to hold tho recovered terri
tory, especially the shrlne-templed city
ot Adrlanople, unless again driven out by
force. No local force is available. The
Balkan state are exhausted by war, and
their recovery will take years, even If a
reunion Is possible. Force, then, must
come from the Dowers. Their Interests
In that direction are so diverse and thalr
rivalries so fierce that the unexpected
will surely happen should they send i
Joint expeditionary force to exact com'
pllance with the treaty ot London. Tp
the chargo of duplicity with respect 10
treaty obligations, the Turks can cite
numerous precedents In which the Big
Six do not shine as defenders ot the let
ter or spirit of wrltten instruments.
It Won't Go Down.
OMAHA, July 15. To the Editor of The
Bee: That talk about rates charged for
public utilities In other cities Having no
bearing on rates charged here, does not
go down with me. It does not go with
other folks, who, like me, have moved
here from other cities. When I lived In
Lincoln I paid only IS cents for water,
for which I was charged 35 cents here.
Over in Council Bluffs, with one-fifth the
population, I am told, gas sells for the
same price It does here. I read In the
paper not long ago where our Water
board manager, while visiting in Minnea
polis and In Milwaukee, made a special
Inquiry to learn that gas was sold
cheaper there than here, but was care
ful to shut his eyes to the much lower
price charged for water. If the price In
other cities has nothing to do with the
case, why waste their tlrne? I am for
lower rates all along the line, and the
lower the better. O. M.

OMAHA, July 25. To the Editor of The

great deal of Omaha, stopped here
over Sunday. We think you have a great
and prosperous city. Would like to call
your attention to one fact that surprised
us. We took several street car rides.
and got off at Krugs park, which wo
found a very pleasant place, but for one
great exception, which was the dancing
that was going on in full swing. Young
girls nnd boys that did not. seem to need
any Introduction, seemed to spend their
whole time In a mad whirl.
We were surprised that Omaha minis
ters and mothers and fathers of these
young people would stand calmly by and
let theso young folks spend the holy day
In such a manner. I understand that no
public dances aro allowed on Sunday, but
surely there are none more public than
'the one going on at a public park, which
surely Is harmful to the proper upbring
ing of the young people, as the freedom
of a public dance floor Is known to every
one. F. GRUBE.

THE WILLOW WHISTLE.
Minna Irving In Leslie's.
The city streets are drab and dry
No matter where I look,
And memory travels back along
A brown and babbling brook,
Whero catkins on the bending boughs
AVere fuzzy, green and new,
And In the springtime long ago
The willow whistles grew.
An ancient knife with half a blade;
Dull, too, and nicked, and bent,
Was all I needed when I wrought
My simple Instrument
I choso a straight and sturdy twlft
And sllnned the bark away.
Till smooth and white as ivory
Upon my palm It lay.
I cleaned it of the pearly pith.
And cut the notch with care.
And played upon my sylvan fluta
A wld Impromptu air:
So piercing sweet the sliver strain.
So long and loud and shrill,
The dulcet pipes of Pan replied
' From every rock and hill.
I hear the operatic stars
In all their glory now;
Their muslo lacks tho witchery
Within the willow bough;
And .whon the purple lilac shakes'
Its feathers in tho rain,
The willow whistle calls to me
Across the years again.

OMAHA. July 24. To the Editor of
The Bee: I fully agree with "Aunt Ann"
concerning the duties Incumbent upon
women In relation to the family, and
that children should be taught politeness,
forbearance and self-respect by their
parents, If they are ever expected to prac
tice these virtues; duty, like charity, be
gins at home, but It does not end there.
The natural tendency of the mind toward
evil, together with the corrupt environ
ment of the age, are conditions that
the best possible home training Is not
always able to overcome; and unless the
Internal structure of society be altered.
or greatly modified, wickedness and folly
will continue to predominate. Saloons and
dives must be driven out, white slavery
must be abolished, our literature, dance
halls and play houses must be purified,
and the suffrages of women are needed
to accomplish this great work of reform
ing the laws.
It Is true that the laws cannot make
peopie goou, dui mey can remove a
great many temptations that are the
prlm causes of so many going bad.
Whether women are less Intelligent than
men Is not worth disputing about: but
without any desire to flatter the fair
sex, I hold the opinion that they are
more honest and more truthful, and have
more patience than the men. While men
dispute for years over speculative Drob-
lems, Boma'of which do not affect our
practical life one way or the other, a
woman arrives at conclusions by the
simplest operations of the mind. A woman
Is seldom wrong on any question that
Involves the moral training of children.
but many of them are wrong when
they feel themselves competent to Im
press the mind of a child with such
strong sense of Its duty to society and
Itself, that It will be able to resist any
and all temptations to act otherwise.
One of the best ways to prevent a child
overeating Is to. remove the food; the
best way to reform drunkards and pre
vent crime, poverty and wretchedness, is
to remove the bottle and barrel; for the
Intelligence of the average man or woman
is not many degrees aoove- tnat of a
child; I have seen men drink lemon ex
tract, pure alcohol, bay rum. pepper
sauce and vinegar, pain killers by the
pint, paregoric and other brands of
poison; and some say there are men who
drink gasoline, red Ink and creosote. It
Is often but a few short steps from wine
to stale beer, and the dance hall and
alcohol are twin brothers. If voting will
remedy some ot the existing evils, let us
sll vote "early and often." E. O. M.
