that does rrioro damngo at tho breech than at

parently reliable authority that tho memoran
dum which Secretary Bryan scoks to use as his
justification was, In reality, not the terms pro
posed or approved by tho Taft administration,
but mcroly an enumeration of tho demands
inado by Colombia. It 1b true that Presldont
Wilson Inherited the Colombian affair, but It
stands to reason that had either of the preced
ing republican presidents been willing to tondor
Colombia tho apology, and pay as much as
fin.000,000 to balm wounded feelings, tho ne
gotiations would have been comploted then and
there. The very fact that Colombia's claims
wore left ovor for the Wilson administration to
adjust or rojoct Is proof positive that Mr. Taft
and his ndvlsors refused to yield what Colombia
wanted, and Instead of affording Secretary
Bryan justification, should havo put him on his
guard ngalnst tho surrender he is now urging.
Base Ball in Court.
Too much base ball In the civil courts these
days for tho good of the game. Bnso ball is an
out-of-door sport and It will never thrive In
tho musty atmosphoro of legal contests. A good
deal has already boen said about the general
Japao of Interest as roflocted In attendances all
ovor tho country, and It must hn nnnnmnt in
all that If this tendency Is to bo overcome tho
conditions causing It must first bo corrected. In
this connection, it Is admitted that theso out
side or rather Insldo controversies have their
effect. Back of theso aro tho fabulous figures
concerning playera' salarlos and owners' rev

This cannot go on without fatal results. A civil
contract must mean as much in base ball as In
any other lino of activity. It ought not bo
necessary to got a court Injunction to keoD a
player from breaking his verbal pledge or writ
ten, promlso. Yot players would not do this If
ownors, or employers, did not mako It possible
it lanes two to mako tho bargain. Before tho
ownor may expect tho player to do what is right,
mo ownor muat do It, himself. Baiting men

Tha question Is how nearly 1b Chicago's situa

horror at this torrlblo curso. But still those
who will may got all the dope they want In
almost any city In this country, Just as thugs

out and buy all the guns thoy desire If only
they have the price. And while the traffic in
dope is carried on clandestinely, deadly weapons
are displayed In show windows as a constant at

If the gun In tho thug's hands Is capable of doing
one-half the mischief of the llttlo pinch of dope.
It Is foolish to say that this shameful traffic can
not be, at least, very greatly curbed and con

SOUTH OMAHA. June !t.-To the
Editor of The Bee: Some of the strong
suffragists have at tlms classed women
with Idiots, Imbeciles and orlmlnals
because they do not have the right of
suffrage. I consider It an Insult to
every man and woman of the country
to make such comparison. It Is an In
sult to the suffragists themselves to
make It There would be Just as much
sense In saying women are classed with
pigs and cows, because thoce animals
do not havo the right of suffrage. I

upon a pedestal far above the common
things of life.
Tho next time the suffragists nrennrn
a float for the Ak-8ar-Bcn parades, I
wouw suggest that Instead of classing
me women of America with idiots and
criminals, they represent them In their
true sense, for In every Amerlcnn homo
thero Is or should be a queen of moro
supremo power and nmlesty than that of
the queen to the royal purplo born. The
women of America are not Idiots, Im

To the credit of the women of this
country they nre not using tho means

and the destruction of relics from th
times of the warn between the English

way have any possible connection with
the suffrage question. Priceless rollcs

The Journal of Commerce an.t commercial Bul
letin, published In New York, on June 3 published an
account of scandal In the Japanese navy with regatd
to naval contracts with British shipbuilders. The
'special correspondence'' Is dated Toklo, May i, anil
Is as follows:
Since the verdict of the preliminary court finding
certain accused naval officers and prominent busi
ness men guilty of bribery and corruption in con
nection with naval contracts the case has suddenly
made further developments and now threatens to be
come much more far-reaching than elttier the law or
the public had anticipated. This Is largely due to the
Inauguration of the new cabinet, which Is tomewhat
revengefully averse to Its predecessor, and especially
to the former officials of the Navy department; and
the new minister of Justice. Hon. Yuklo Ozakl, has
ordered a reinvestigation, so that none implicated
may escape the process promising to Involve some
officials higher up In having a share In the spoils.
Conditions of graft and corruption In circles were
brought to light first by the secret papers stolen from
a German firm In Toklo by a stenographer, who care
fully took photographic copies of them and sold the
originals to tho agent of a foreign news company In
Toklo. As soon as the firm and the naval authorities
learned that the news agent was In possession of the
dangerous papers ho was approached for their return
and finally agreed' to restore them to the German
firm for consideration of 50,000 yen. But In tho mean
time, tho German authorities having heard of the
crlmo committed by the stenographer, had him ar
rested upon his arrival in Shanghai and brought to
Berlin for trial. At the trial the contents of the
stolen papers became public, and then It was learned
that Japanese naval officers were accustomed to re
ceive 5 per cent commissions on naval contracs
awarded to British or German firms. No sooner had
the report of the trial reached Toklo than the mem
bers of tho Imperial Diet, then In session, began an
agitation for probing the charge's against tho naval
officers, and so tho whole system of bribery and cor
ruption became public. Tho preliminary court, after
an exhaustive Investigation lasting over three
months, during which four naval officers of high
standing and some half a dozen prominent business
men, as well as two Englishmen and a German, were
under arrest and detention In prison, finally remanded
all for public trial on charges of bribery and attempt
to cover up a widespread system of graft.
Th's story of the Japanese navy scandal, Involv
ing, as It does, tho Illegitimate manipulation of such
vast sums of public money, becomes a matter of as
much financial as moral Interest. Think of receiv
ing a commission of 1.150,000 yen on ono contract
alonol That Is the sum which the Japanese court
alleges a Japanese company received from a British
shipbuilding firm on tho contract for building a bat
tle irulser last year In British yards. The news
papers, which havo been conducting an independent
Investigation, declare, however, that they are in pos
session of evidence to prove that the total amount of
commission paid for awarding this contract to tho'
British concern was l.SOO.COO yen. The court Is now.
making a further Investigation to ascertain tha truth
of this, but of the former amount the court asserts
that It possesses undoubted evidence. The pHqo paid
for this ship by tho Japanese government was 25,000,000 1
yen, of wnich, it seems, some i.kw.uw went in com'
missions and bribes to those who secured the contract
for tho bulldera as against rival firms, among whom
there was a heated competition, tho final decision
resting with tho naval officers who awarded the con
tract und received the bribes. m
Tho Inevitable query Is, If so much money went In
bribes and commissions on one contract, how much
must Japan have lost In this way on the numerous
other ship contructs placed with foreign firms? Dur
ing tho last few years about a dozen ships were con
structed In British yards, their total tonnage being
How tho bribes and commissions In connection
with this contract were disposed of Is one of the most
Interesting and Illuminating aspects of the case, as
revealed by the preliminary court. According to the
findings of that tribunal, the Japanese company
paid a certain vice admiral 400,000 yen as bribe for
consenting to award the contract to the British com
pany, the sum being taken from the big commission
received by the Japanese concern from tne iingnsn
concern. The vice uamirai aiviuca nis uik um'u m
the form of smaller bribes among his confederates
and accomplices. The court declares that another
vice admiral was given some tS.&OO yen and a director
of tho Japanese firm 15,000 yen. Tho money was In
vested by theso vice admirals In purchasing land and
government bonds. As soon as the naval scandal ap
peared the Jnpancso concern began to rear an in
vestigation nnd their officials altered the entries on
tho books of the firm In connection with the naval
contract, and for this, as well as for giving and
taking bribes, they aro under Indictment. What tho
Japanese firm did with Its big commission appears
also to have excited the curiosity or me pudiic nnu
the court. After handing over the 400,000 to the naval
officers It is alleged thut at least 300,000 was given to
certain steel works in Japan.
The main question before the courts at present Is
how far the discovered system of bribery and cor
ruption extends. The names of the very highest of
ficials In the navy ore being freely mentioned as tn
vnlviwl. but nothing has as yet been proved. Still
very department that has had anything to do with
supplying naval material appears to te unaer sus
picion, even to paint contractors ana moe wno niau
ammunition. The German affair reveals still another
phase of the case, where German urms ' supplying
wireless and other apparatus ior nuim biuuuuq
fmind bv tho court to have been nrioing naval oi-
fleers, for which their Toklo agents are now under
Indictment. The naval scandal began with this case.
