not quite, reallzo tho fondest dreamt)
of tho most ardent advocates of re

undertaking by tho good wishes of
everybody, for he promises to all a
better way of doing things. If he
can fulfill his promises ho will be
listed among tbo greatest benefac
tors of tho rnoo In all history.
Certain economic conditions,
whose stability amounts almost to
law, will havo to bo ovorturnod, and
certain deep-rooted attributes of
man's imperfect nature will have to
bo expunged beforo tho president
will bo ablo to say his work has been
accomplished along tho lines he lays
down. It will bo a glorious time
.hcn "all men's good Is oach man's
aim," but that condition Is hardly
.tely to bo brought about by legis
lation, no matter how ingeniously it
may bo devised.
That certain well understood
abusea aro in need of corroctlvo
measures has long been known;
theso tho president plainly points
out, and as plainly suggest tho rom
edy. Somo of his further proposals
aro In tho naturo of exporlmonts,
supported perhaps by theoretical
reason, but as yot untried In actual
oxperlonce. It is characteristic,
howover, of American commerco and
Industry that it can withstand a
great doal in tho way of shock and
disturbance and it Is altogether
probable that business will eventu
ally readjust Its workings along tho
lines of tho presidential suggestions,
and that prosperity will continue, in
spite of the proposed federal control
of matters that havo hitherto been
loft to state regulation.
Tho one thing to be most desired
Is a epoody enactment of tho laws

Woman as a Political Boss.
The first woman to attain tho po
sition of stato chairman- ot a great
political party, Mrs. Qertrudo A.
Leo, elects to follow tho bbaten path
of machine politics, announcing nor
solf as a staunch bollover In tho boss
system and determined' to build up
for tho democracy of Colorado an
Impregnable party machine. Tho
only changes sho would mako In tho
system would bo such as would tend
to solidify the organization and in
trench ita power.
Just how this will suit somo ot
tho other feminist loaders of the

can do. UUi iunaatnemauy mere
should bo no dlfforonco in tho oxer-

Perhaps, after all, tho condemna
tion ot bosslsm, it is tho right sys
tern, and perhaps, Uko certain forms
ot municipal govornmont, tho fault
is moro in tho porsonnol than any
thing else. Maybo mon nro inher
ently too woak or bad to havo such
powor vested in them. PosBibly in
tho. hands of woman what Ib de

entirely virtuous; not only so, but
roally tho Ideal plan. It Is for Mrs

practical standpoint, sho occupies
tho most advanced station of any of
her sisters, for alio is actually In

8RADSHAWV Neb., Jan. l9.-To the
Editor of The Bee: There Is much tommy
rot going the rounds of the press In re
gard to "woman's sphere," and "woman's
true place In the world." "Woman's
sphere" reaches out on all sides to the
lines that circumscribe the sphere of
humanity, Her "true place In the
world" Is In the highest place to which
sho may beablo to climb. She has Just
as good a right as any to occupy tho
position for which she is best fitted by
Inclination and by mental endowment.
There are thousands of women who oro
better fitted to hold the reins than are
thousands ot men who are doing the
driving. And somo of the men who are
driving would be more gracefully suc
cessful at the wash tub than they are In
the positions they are occupying.
There Is but one thing that gives any
human the right to dnmand or lay claim
to any "sphere" as his or her particular
right and that Is superior qualification to
discharge the duties devolving upon
those who move in that "sphere." No
particular sex can lay Just claim to
superior mental qualifications and no
particular sex has the right to arrogate
to Itself any particular "sphere."
When It comes to questions Involving
principles women are just as capable of
arriving et conclusion as are men. Their
perceptions aro keener, as a rule, and
having convictions they have the fight
to express them: and they should have
the right to express them at the polls. If
they desire to do so. They are Just as
much affected by the solutions of ques
tions that affect national life as men
are. They should be allowed to speak
and vote in solution of these questions If
they wish to. They aro subject to tho
same laws that govern men. Why should
they not be permitted to act on the ques
tion of the adoption of laws? They own
property, and It Is subject to the same
assessment and the same tax levy that
Is Imposed upon the property held In
masculine names. Why should they oo
forbidden to speak on questions affect
ing taxation? They havo the same phys
ical needs to supply that men havo.

OMAHA, Jan. W.-To the Editor of The
Bee: Referring to your article ot Satur
day, 17th Inst:, headed, "In Other Lands
Tho Saber Affair in Zabcrn." I will give
a llttlo detail in regard to your article
about Alsace. As I spent the greater
part of my boyhood days 3n that country
and received my school education In the
very city of Zabe'n, I am moro inter
ested In recent nfiatrs in that country
than most of your readers.
To go back Into history. Alsace Is a
German name, originated from the tribe
ot Allemanen, that settled on the river
111, a tributary of the Rhino, entering
that river at Strassburg, hence the namo
Illsasser, or "settler's on the 111."
Alsace Is a beautiful country. Louis
XIV, while overlooking It from the
Vogesen mountains, exclaimed, "Oh, quel
It was always the destre of the French
to possess Alsace. Early as the four
teenth century, after France was some
what freed from her troubles with Eng
land, Louis XI tried to annex Alsace,
but the cannons of Strassburg sent the
French home with bloody heads. Louis,
In revenge, raised a large army under
the leadership ot the duke of Armagnac,
which invaded Alsace In 1444 and de
stroyed it with fire and sword. Before
the gates of Zaborn 18,000 Alsatians were
tortured and murdered and so fared
every city in Alsace. I have read a great
deal about the Indian atrocities, but so
far I found nothing td compare with
those murderers. "With the aid of herolo
Switzerland, Alsace regained and drove
the bands of Armagnae out of the coun
try, but peace was brlct The thirty
year war which raged in Germany sev
ered and weakened that country and gave
Louis XIV the best chance to seize
Alsace. Not satisfied with Alsace alone,
he greedily reached out for Palatine and
other German provinces, on tho Rhine.
Many ruins bear witness today ot the
French Invasion under Marshal Melao
and Montclar. Everywhere in those un
happy provinces the Frcncn left ruin and
Louis XIV seized Alsace despite the
protest of the people and made It a
French province. The French revolution
was carried from Paris to Alsace-Lorraine,
hundreds ot citizens in Strassburg and
Met being behead'od. Religion was sup
pressed, the churches robbed of their
valuables and turned Into public houses
and stables. The cathedral ef Metz, a
beautiful Gothic structure, was used as
a stable for cavalry horses. Through
the Influence ot Napoleon's victories
Alsace became politically French. It
furnished tho majority ot Napoleon's
generals, also the best of his soldiers,
but In all those centuries of French rule
German traditions and German language
Germany did not forget Alsace-Lorraine,
and the victorious campaign ot 1S70 re
stored to the Vuterland the long-lost
provinces, under whose rule Alsace and
Lorraine prospers, and will continue to
be a German province as long as there
is a Germany.
And I assure you, that it today Alsace
and Lorraine would come under French
rule again, S9 per cent of the population
would wish for the solid rule of Ger
many! The lamentations and howling about
Alsace-Lorraine is one of those many
French schemes to create sympathy. For
over forty years France has been crj'lnj
for revenge, and If thero Is any trouble
like this last one In Kabern, It comes
from across "the blue Alsatian moun
tains." In speaking about Saber rule, court
niartlat and warning visiting Americans
from Germany, I would remind the
writer of "In Other Lands" not to throw
stones. Look around in the land of the
free and the brave. How about that
military rule In Michigan? And how
about the conditions in Pennsylvania and
