Back Up, Mr. School Board.
The summary dismissal by the School board
of a member of tho High school teaching staff,
without even charges, and much less a hearing,
after moro than fifteen years' sorvlce and suc
cessive promotions, promises to disclose whether
tho so-called permanent list affords any perma
nency or protection to teachers. It goes with
out saying that if the board can dismiss a' per
manent list teacher In this fashion, every teacher
In tho schools Is exposed to the same treatment,
and the permanent list is a farce. No ono will
contend that the school teacher Is, or should be,
Immune from dismissal for cause, but he, or
she, should hovo a right to know what, If any,
charges aro mado and nn opportunity to refute
them. Our School board Just now Is not in
such high public esteem that It can afford to
violate its own rules and repudiate Its own obli
gations Just to wreak petty vengeance of Indi
The Morale on Railroads.
60m ft. tmo ago the Economist of Chicago nug
gestcd the formation of liome kind of an organlta
tlon of railway men to "encourage a high moralo"
In the service. It Is a remarkable tact that most
of the offenses against law and good morals that
are committed In connection with the management
of railways are committed In their financing, and
that In most cases those who commit them nre mon
who have made their money aa bankers, manufac
turers or mine operators and have broken Into rail
way boards of directors for the apparent purpose
of exploiting the roads. In almost every case the
railways whose finances aa welt an their operation
are directed by men who have come up In the rail
way service are not only efficiently, but also hon
estly, managed. Railway Age-Oazette.
Coming from this well known publication
dovoted In tho largo sonso to the best interests
of railways, tho statement Is moro significant
than if mado by a papor or magazine of loss In
timates relations with railroads. The Ago
Oazetto hits the bull's-eye when It says that this
proposed ethical organization might servo a very
practical purpose If laid out on broad enough
lines as to Includo In Its membership those who
aro really responsible through financial manip
ulation for tho grossest of railroad mismanage
"In such an 'organization wo. suppose that
democracy would prevail 'and that those who
actually operate railways would bo allowed to
chock up and shako the finger of scorn at tho
financial powers." A big grain of truth la con
cealed in this irony. If such a genuine reform
lng and raising of moral standards could be ef
fected It would have a tremendous Influence
also on other Industries, as well as the railroads.
And until those who dictate nnd dominate the
railroads from Wall street, largely for specula
tive purposes, begin whatever work of regenera
tion Is needed little chango may be expected.
Streams aro purified at their sources. It Is no
longer possible to fool tho poople, either those

1 ' False Views.
That "educated" Indian who, addressing a
federation of his people, deplored tho failure of
civilization and preferred tho primitive life of
hjs race becauso ha ,saw "crime 'running ram
pant" and "tho atrugglo of capital and labor"
going on, togothor with other social' nd Jodusv
trial Inequalities arid' oppressions, is not well
educated as ho might be or ho would know, bot
tor than, tp Judge civilization or anything olso
on tho basis of Its faults Instead of ita virtues.
Superficial thlnkors doubtless applauded tho
Indian's Uttcronco and said he was right. Of
course, ho was woefully wrong, But tho trou
bio Is that so many more besides Indians are
disposed to tako BUch short-sighted and false
vlows of tho situation. Is man, "made lh (he
imago of God," so weak and frail a creature
that ho cannot ond.ure tho struggle of righting
wrong, of equalizing oppressions, of bringing
order out of chaos? Civilization Is nothing. but
the growth and dovolopmont of the race- It
has had Its struggles from tho beginning and
win navo them to tho end. Tho hlstpry. of, tho
aborlgino is ono of them. The status 'of tho
American Indian In this twentieth century of
light and reason, of tolerance and Justice, of
genius and progress, of "equal rights to all and
op"oclal prlvjlogos to none," Is one of the ad
vanced milestones In tho courso of this develop
ment. This very pessimistic Indian In this very
pesslmlstlo speech otands as a tribute both to
trio beneficence and wisdom, as well aa the tri
umph of civilization. The very fact that th
red man, the brown man, the black, yellow or
white man can stand on any dry goods box In
this land and denounce this civilization in th
clamorous delight of an unthinking rabble Is
nnai and irrefutable proof of tho irresistible
power of the vory thing against which he In
veighs. Crime Is not rampant among those who are
graduated into tho higher classes of civilization
and struggles between capital and labor are not
without their fruits of larger mutual rights and
relations, a higher sense of justice. Happily
for the 'strengthening of the raco, civilization
can look about and find plenty to keep it profita

Tho reserve board, which Is to hav direction
of the regional banks created under the" new
currency law. Is only now completed many
months after the bill was rushed through con
gross under whip and spur of tho president as
an emergency act. It will bo recalled how even
some democrats, as well as republicans In the
house and senate, reflecting In part sentiment
from the outside, Insisted on more deliberate ac
tion in the passage of this measure, but all" in
rain, as tho president was determined on' put
ting it through as hastily as possible. '
The tardy completion of the reserve Board,
now makes clear the fact that no great, emer
gency demanded such haste, while on tho other
hand a, good deal might have been gained by
greater deliberation in considering and framing
the currency act. Of course, It is plain now, as
it was then, that the president felt sure of being
able to control his party In congress and, fearing
dangers In delay, proposed to take no chances
on putting through the bill. Whether that Is
tho best way in which to dispose of such Impor
tant issues is the question. It Is rather striking
proof of the fact, howerer, that Mr. Wilson Is
both chief executive and congress Just now.
It would' be most intolerable It this psycho

OMAHA, Juno IS. To the Editor of
The Bee: The State Normal board Is to
meet at Wayne June 23, among other
things to consider the selection of a Pres.
Ident for the Kearney normal. It Is said
the two teacher member have about
given up the Idea ot occupying the place
they helped to make vacant. It Is gen
erally understood that Oelzell and Cav.
Iness. directed by Majors, are largely re
sponsible for certain rules recently
adopted which will prevent any com
petent man, who knows conditions, from
accepting the place.
Under tho rules, the president Is the
nominal head, but has no authority to
do anything. He must consult his regis
trar for permission to do practically
everything. The president has no voice

grO.uhdfl andt buildings, the placing of

of the premises. The Janitors and other
latrarera are specifically placed under the
direction of the registrar. Tho president
has no authority to ask a Janitor to pick
up. a piece of paper, clean a window,
seep a floor or move a piece of furni
ture. The president has nothing to do
with the printing. All that seems to be
left for the president Is permission to
visit classes occasionally.
The statutes make the president of the
normal school Its chief executive ofricer,

held responsible for the general policy

The Outlook Asks This Question and
Undertakes to . Give the Answer.
Business Is disorganized. New enterprises are not
begun; old enterprises are curtailing their, business;
willing workers are laid off; every morning news
paper reports the cry of the unemployed; dividends
aro reduced or passed altogether. The crbps are
promising; conditions demand' prosperity. But busi
ness Is not good; prosperity Is conspicuously absent
Mexico 'does not want war; the United States does
not want war, and yet we are In a state of restrained
war with Mexico. American properly has been looted;
scores of American cltlsens have been killed. The
American flag has furnished no protection; for pro
tection' Americans have fled, to the English and Ger
man flags. The hostility ot the Mexicans to the
United States Js Jncreased; their respect for the
courage and efficiency ot the United States is di
minished. That our relations with England, Ger
many and Spain are 'not more eerlosuly strained is
duj to their unparalleled patience That we are not
embroiled In actual warfare with Mexico Is due to
the kindly offices of our South American neighbors.
No one .wants war and yet we are on the edge
We have had the responsibilities and duties of sov
ereignty thrust upon us In the Philippines. We have
fulfilled those responsibilities and performed those
duties with notable success. We have substituted law
for anarchy and a domestic government partially rep
resentative 'for a foreign government wholly des
potic. We have subdued hostile tribes, made life and
properly safe, banished epidemics, established a pub
lic, school system, built good roads, promoted com
merce and Industry and furnished protection to a
helpless people from foreign aggression. It Is now
proposed to acknowledge ourselves unable to continue
that protection without aid -and to Invite Japan and
Great Britain td share with us In furnishing It; to
abandon the attempt t6 protect the peaceful cltlrene
from he Ignorance of the many and the misgovern
ment ot the few, and to leave this people unaided to
struggle their way as best they can from childhood
f The answer Is simple. This democratic admlhletra
tratlon does not believe tn a strong government. It
fears that the strong government will be a despotic
government. It seeks refuge from that peril In
It confronts great Industrial organisations. It does
not believe In making the government strong
enough to regulate such organizations and compel
them to deal Justly with the people. It. therefore,
endeavors to disorganize these 'business organizations
and convert each one of them Into, two or more
competing rivals, Buslntss Is disorganized because It
Is the avowed policy of the present democratic ad
ministration to disorganize business.
Mexico Is torn by" contending fact'ons, neither of
which recognizes the necessary conditions of peace
or the modern laws of war. The democratic admin
istration docs not believe In maintaining a govern
ment strong enough to say to both factions: The laws
ot war toward honccmbatants must and shall be
obeyed. So It looks on appalled, but inert while ban

believes" that" this" nation neither has" nor-ought to
have the power to complete the task which It has
.begun. It . therefore, proposes that tho United States
enter into one of those entangling alliances with for
eign' nation's 'against which Washington warned his
countrymen, pay for this alliance by disavowing the
right of the United States to control the canal built
by the money of the United States through the terri
tory of the United States and then pull down our
.flag-In the Philippine and retire, wtlh confession of
our weakness, from our uncompleted undertaking.
It Is sometimes said that It makes, little difference
what men believe If their "characters are good. No
one questions the character of President Wilson and
his advisers. Their Intentions are excellent; their
spirit Is patriotic'. But they believe that a strong
government Is perilous to Individual liberty, that In
weakness Is safety. It Is this belief which has Invited
disaster at home, brought dishonor in Mexico and now
summons us to retreat from the Philippines. Consist
ently applied, It would withdraw our flag from
Hawaii and Porto Rico, abandon our protectorate In
Cuba and transform the Panama canal Into an Inter
national highway, owned, regulated and policed by
an International commission.
The American people have the opportunity this
fall to elect a house of representatives- which be
lieves In a strong government able to control the
great Industrial organization at home, able to protect
persons and property in Mexico and able to carry to
a splendid consummation the national work so splen
didly commenced In the Philippines, it Is for them
to decide whether the policy which In fifteen months
has brought us to the present conditions, at home
and abroad, shall be continued or halted now and
In 1916 .reversed.
