Until now he has been able, though only by
much pulling, hauling and pressure, to put
across everything ho has proposed, and as party
schoolmaster has managed at least to control, if
not to subdue, the unruly democratic pupils.
The appointment of Jones proves unfortunate in
several ways not so much with reference to
anything the president has directly nt stake as
In disclosing him bent upon favoring personal
friends and campaign contributors regardless of
qualifications and proprieties, or, more pre
cisely. In Ignorance of both. What must be
most embarrassing In tho Jones matter must be
the contradiction by Mr. Jones of the statements
made by tho presMcnt to justify his selection.
The fight over Jones, of course, was a fight
between the president and certain senators of
his own party for the spoils of office, and tho
outcome must tend to encourage further clashes.
Incidentally, thq urgent need of getting the new
bank under way, which last December we were
told must not wait another moment, has been
wholly overlooked, and the new banking law,
whose Immediate oporatlon was required to save
the country, has been practically suspended at
the plcasuro of tho administration.
New York Still leads.
The government's 1914 estimate of popula
tion, which is based on tho percentage of previ
ous growth, shows, contrary to many predic
tions, that Now York is not losing anything to
Chicago In tho rnce for supremacy. New York,
according to this estimate, now has a population
of 6,333,537, Chicago 2,393,325, and New
York's gain slnca 1910 1b larger both in bulk
nnd percentage. Chicago has made an 8 per
cent Increaso, Now York d.0.
Of courso, thoro Is always a chance for Inac
curacy by this method of computation, and yet
It ought to prove as fair for ono city as another.
In any event, thoro Is little on which to base the
prediction of Chicago's passing Gotham as the
American metropolis for many years to come.
These figures still show St. Louis aa fourth
city in tho land, but by an increasingly precari
ous margin. Both Boston and Cleveland are
crowding it hard. St. Louis in 1910 led Boston
by mora than 16,000; according to the 1914 es
timates It leads It by only 8C5. Clovelnnd,
which comes next to Boston, has almost doubled
the estimated gain of St. Louis In these last
threo years and a half. St. Louis is not insensi
ble to Its Insecurity as fourth city. Its newspa
pers have rccontly given expression to that In
appeals for an all-togothor pull to maintain that
position. That was ono of tho strong argu
ments used In the lato city election for tho pas
sago of a new charter, under -which marked
progress Is promised. Tho people of the mlddlo
west are pulling for tho conservative old Mis
souri metropolis, but should tho relative esti
mated percentages of growth continue for tho
remainder ot this decade, then they will have
found that they pulled in vain.' Natural condi
tions certa!hly should be. in favor of St. Louis
as compared with Boston in this race.

"Olory Hallelujah!" exclaimed Senator
Hitchcock, according to press dispatches, when
tho Information roachod htm thnt tho president
had withdrawn tho appointment over which ho
has been fighting tho administration.
Whatevor "glory'' attaches to successful
democratic Insurgency, of courso, must bo con
coded to tho senator thus scoring a great victory
as a champion of the downtrodden people.
But one thins remains to cap tho climax.
"Glory Hallelujah' must be written into tho
platform soon to bo framed and promulgated at
Columbus as the edict and clarion call of Ne
Tho Case of MoDermott.
Congressman McDormott, tho democratic
member from Illinois, who has just boon run to
cover by charges of misconduct In office, very
naturally falls back upon his right to appeal to
tho voters of his district at tho noxt election for
his vindication. That was about all that seemed
to bo loft for him. Sulzer, It will be recalled,
availed himself of the samo old device. So dtd
If MoDermott -waB innocent of any wrong
doing ho mado tho most egregious mistake In re
signing. No innocent man, no .matter whether a
mombor of congress or not. should resign undor
flro. The fact is that tho charge preferred
against tho Illinois congressman, trading his
official Influence for porsonal profit, is looked
upon as indefensible, no longer pardonable by
means ot tho cleverest halr-spllttlng pray upon
words or facts. Progress has been made so
noticeably ot lato yoara along those lines that
tho country may rojolco that what once passed
as tho unquestioned right ot cunning officeholders-
is no longer oondonod or tolerated.

OMAHA. July 14. To the Editor of
Tho Bee: The suffragist claims she only
wishes tho vote. The feminist openly
aims at a revolution of home and state.
A generation back the Woman Christian
Temperance union leaders pleaded with
men to abolish tho saloon. Feminists
were few and modest. At times women
like Mrs. Cady Stanton severely criti
cised the scriptures, St. Paul In particu
lar. Mrs. Stanton's "Woman's Bible" be
came a flxzle. Women of America had
nt that time a mass-consclousncss of
reverence for the church and the Bible.
A feminist frr love advocate dared not
openly volco her doctrines of socialised
Then came the suffrage movement, In
full force. With Increased criticism ot
the Dlble and St Paul especially, a cer
tain modesty was preserved. The lustful
fre love women leaders of women had
their corrupted thoughts to themselves.
The flro only burnt within them. Our
magazines and papers still observed the
glorious American boast of honoring
enly the good worrian, the woman whose
vole was not a seductive siren, but a
champion of clean morals and a Christian
civilization. Give- us the ballot and we
will throw our tremendous Influence di

In adoration of the new Idea. Men, these
Immoral, wretched men had mined the
world by their comnterolal servitude to
the powers ot vice. Women would mako
tho world clean. The dens of vice would
by woman's vote be eradicated.
And then came, and here It Is, a suf
froglsm led by nameless creatures of
tho type of -Mrs. Gllman, lnes Mllholland
(I let hor retain her maiden name) Mrs.
Belmont and others of like fame. The
good women, noble Jane Addams and
others are now linked, chained, bound
hand and foot to a party and an assocl
atlon of women passing rapidly Into the
power of the feminists, the free lovu
revolutionists, whose voice and counsels
are honored by the greatest magazines
of our land, the Atlnntlc, the Century,

and the rest, seem doomed to be

appalling situation. The women of
America read with hunger and glitter of
eye the namcleasly Immoral writings of
Ellen Key, llosa Mayrtder, Edna Kenton,
Incs Mllholland and their lnnumerablo
comrades. All our magraslnea soon feast

War Clonila Orrr Albania.
It Is quite agreed among Intelligent folk that to get
anything approaching an adequate Idea of the Al
banian tendency toward strife on must turn to Al
banian history, which goes back Into the archives of
antiquity. The tribes of ancient times resisted all
attempts at subjugation, did not even so much as
acknowledgo a Supreme Authority, except during the
reign of Pyrrhua of Eplrus In the third century TJ. C.
and ion down these trlbea have kicked against all the
pricks of power. In the middle agea they were typi
cally obstinate In rebelling against the Turk, so they
have kept their country In a turmoil most of the
time. But this Is the twentieth century, and though
still little civilized, even holding to old forms of
patriarchal government, tho Albanians are entitled to
better treatment at the hands of wiser and stronger
powers. That Is what they are going to get, It now
seems. The latest proposal for the little country's
relief and redemption Is an International commission
of control. How It would suit Albania Is another
question. George Fred Williams, writing rrom Athens,
says a war may come with Italy, Albania or Turkey
as a result of the Greek policy of occupation. He
says that If this reported occupation is undertaken
with or without the consent of the powers It means
war with Albania and an Invitation to Turkey to
come In ton a double war. In the Albanian situation,
as In many others of some similarity In southern
Europe, the chief trouble seems to be that wherever
the powers approach It at all, they do so from the
wrong angle of self-interest, Instead of the standpoint
of seeking to help an almost helpless neighbor.
Press Used Asalnst Servln.
Servla la having ample opportunity to feel the power
of the press, which tho Atistrla-HunKorlan govern
ment Is employing as an Instrument ot offense In a
very persistent and bitter campaign against the
weaker country. The situation between them does
not mend a bit Indeed. It grows worse, If anything.
Austria-Hungary is able to use the press for this base
purpose because It comes so nearly controlling it In
Its 'entirety. On which point endless homilies might
be preached to Americans who may have grown
callous or unapprcclatlve of their own great boon of
a free press, it is apparent to Europe- that Servla
desires no war. Indeed, the Servian minister to Lon
don says It does not He says his country only too
keenly realizes its need "for peace, but nevertheless
Is averse to "pjace at any cost." Its exchequer needs
repairing, its Industries building up, its territories de
veloping, but after all Serva feels that It has some
rights for which. If pressed too far, it must fight. And
the question now being asked Is whether Austria

Trenr-tiTo Stiles of Ships.
Here Is the gist of a dispatch from London, which
bears significantly on the much-mooted matter of
world peace: "A magnificent spectacle was witnessed
when King George reviewed the fleet at Splthead,
where twenty-two miles of battleships passed in re
view." Much waa made of the event. England Is
making aa much as It can these days of anything
having to do with the aggrandizement of Its naval
and military power. Proudly Britons cast a furtive
glance across the neck of water to soo how the dem
onstration strikes their good friends, the Germans,
who are also sprucing up their arms to the uttermost.
A friendly rivalry? Oh, yes, but a rivalry.
French nnd German Thlnklnsr.
M. Boutroux, professor of philosophy at the Sar
bonne, gave a lecture before the Berlin university
on the nature of thought processes among the French
and the Gtrman, which has attracted much atten
tion. He drew a striking contrast, dealing with the
subject broadly. The German of yesterday, he said,
was characterized In his thinking by Idealism, while
the German of today thinks realistically. But Instead
of being contradictory one to the other, he said,
these processes simply complemented each other. Ger
man thought was governed by Its conception ot In
finity. German alms In llfo were the union of the
Individual with the whole. That explained the ten
dency of Germans to speclallzo In their life work
The German, ho sold, found the French mind alter
nating between passive submission and avowed in
dependence, therefore the French character as fickle
and vasolllatlng. Despite the German notion of the
French as having but a negative genius, M. Bout
roux declared his mind was dominated by a positive
idea. The French Ideal was essentially human. The
professor took pains, however, to Insist that while
a union of German and French geniuses was not
desirable, that each nation Bhould preserve its own
distinct genius. It would be a good thing If tho
French would cultivate a tendency toward the in.

Some time ago thero was a homicido case in a
western court in which there waa considerable doubt
as to the guilt of tho accused. The trial judge seamed
to share the popular beller.
"Gentlemen ot the Jury," said he, In concluding his
charge, "If the evidence In your minds shows that
pneumonia waa the cause of the man's death, you
cannot convict the prisoner."
Whereat the Jury retired and In about ten minutes
the constable returned and presented himself before
