General Sherman' definition of war it 111
War Hti the light of Way.
Treaties, alliance and entente bare been
tbrown to wind and evidently are to count for
little If anything in the present European up
heaval. Germany Invade Luxemburg despite
specific treaty restriction nd Italy stand firm
for peace, while Great Britain would like to
do the same. The venture provoked a Russian
proposal that the czar, Germany and France
combine to teach the Briton a lesson, taking
their reprisal In India, Africa and Egypt, reepec
tlvely.' Only Prance's demand for Alsace-Lorraine
blocked the plan.
With the die cast, nothing must obstruct or
thwart the demew, war, not even the grave mile
stone of experience. Germany attack France
In the same old fashion and France meet It a
I little better than half way. Forty years evi
dently have taught France more than Germany.
The Imminence of a general European was
ass discounted from the first. Germany's hostile
declaration against Russia and France came as
! matter of coarse, so also must similar action by
England be regarded. The remaining question
Is, how far will war spread, or what powers may
succeed In escaping the maelstrom.
Whatever the results, England, now ready
with the rest, will be credited with an active de
sire and effort for peace. Like financially-depressed
Italy, though for a different reason,
England can 111 afford to engage In such a war.
Britain' lack of sympathy with Russia and Its
allies and Interests, with which the Triple
Entente obliges Britain to join, Is also clear.
What a travesty, then', Is war, when nation
with no grievance, with not even xeal enough
to enlist, must let the force of circumstantial
agreement with power with which they have
nothing In common, drive them to action!

The Freight Sate Increase.
The Interstate Commerce Commission's con
cession of a 5 per cent freight rate Increase to
the railroad of the central territory from
Pittsburgh and Buffalo to the Mississippi river,
north of the Ohio and Potomac seem to be
merely a step toward equalising general freight
rate schedules. A rate in thla section were

roads, the advance I not to be taken as alarm
ing. On the contrary the order should have
generally a quieting and reassuring effect. The
railroads, however, should lose no Urn In acting
on the further advice of the commission to cut
off free service and free passes, which mount
up into the million and establish a basis of
maximum efficiency and economy In their op
eration. Th! appllea not only to the eastern

countrymen who happen to be In Europe at this

OMAHA. Aug. t.-To the Editor of The
Bee; Women are asking for eelf-rovern-hient
on equal terma with men- If a col
lege or university education la required
before one may become an elector, well,
so let It be, but let all who can fulfill
the requirement both men and women
participate In government. Thla would be
justice aa between the eexes. To insist
that no woman shall be allowed to vote
because all women are not educated Is
as unjuat aa to Insist that all men be per
mitted to vote rc-arlless of the unfltneaa
of criminals. Make the test an educa
tional one If you chooe, but apply the
test to men as well as women, thus mak
ing Intelligence and not sex the basis for
rtpreaentatlon. The golden rule Is the
safest foundation for a polltlral auper-itiui-ture
and any government founded
upon a eex basis is not calling to Ita aid
the best from all Its citlsens.

commenced to settle up some thirty years
ago and I am one of the number that
took homeateada and aa atlll living on
that homestead today. I never have leTt
it as a great many did by getting dis
couraged and tired of western life. We
have never missed but two crops In all
that time and today we have an excellent
crop of everything that will grow In our
eastern states. Wheat Is now being
threshed ml runs from sixteen te thirty
six bushel per acre, and all other amall
raln about the same way. Com Is In
roasting ear now and clean, and bid fair
for a large crop. No country haa a bet
tar place to grow stock or make money
easier than In weatern Nebraska. We
need mora settlers a we have surplu
land to make good homea for people who
don't have them. There la plenty of good
water to be had from a depth ot twenty

Servia Full of Fight
Since Days of the Roman Empire Its Terri
tory Has Been Scene of Bloody Stnig-gles.
Predeeeeaora of the Serbs.
Defiant little 5ervla hat throughout Its authentic
history maintained a belligerent attitude, and when
not fighting to the dath for liberty lias been busy
with civil wars, making and unmaking kings and
dynasties. Since Roman empire days, when Ferv"s
was part of the Roman province of Moesia and waa
peopled by warlike Thraclans and Illyrians, It has
been In aurcesHlon overrun by Huns, Ostrogoths,
Lombards, Avare and other tribes. All thee have
left thnlr trace In tlie Kervlan people of today, who
are akin to the unconquerable mountaineers of Mon
tenegro and the fierce tribesmen of Albania, who
never tamely aubmltteil to the Ttirklah yoke. As
fighters the Servians are a race not to be despised,
hardy, brave to reckleaenees. filled with Intense pa
triotic spirit and with hate, for Austria which has
lived and grown for ages, handed from sire to son
among the poor herdemen who make tip the bulk
of the Servian nation.
Of a population of a little more than 4,).j0 fully
400.000 Servluns are on the army lists of King Peter.
rentarlea ef Straggle.
About 700 A. D., the Herbs, a Slavic tribe, entered
ihe Moeslan district, even then Inhabited by a mixed
race having half a dozen origins. A. D. 800 they
largely embraced Christianity and for a time ac
knowledged In surly fashion the rule or the Bysan
tlne emperors. In the eleventh century, after having
long acted aa a buffer for the tottering Byzantines
against Bulgarian and others, the Servians, become
Somewhat homogeneous, rebelled and their supreme
chieftlan, Michael, waa proclaimed king and was
recognized aa such by Poge Gregory VII. Thus be
gan a struggle for Independence which took tbe form
of guerrilla warfare and lasted for two generations.
In 1163 Stephen Nemanya became king, and for nearly
200 yearn hla family maintained a sort of rulershlp
over the turbulent, fighting people. Under Stephen
Duehan (133G-S4) the kingdom of Servia Included all
Macedonia, Albania, Thessaly. northern Greece and
Bulgaria. About 1374 a new dynasty ascended the
throne In the person of Isar I. who waa captured
by the Turks at the battle of Kossova (In Allwnla)
In 1389, and put to death. Servia bo. ame tributary
Under Tnrklah Control.
About the mlddlo of the fifteenth century Servia
became a Turkish province and so remained for
nearly 300 years. By the peace of Pasestowltz In 1718
Austria received the 'greater part of Servia. with the
capital, Belgrade. But by the peace of Belgrade In
1739 tills territory waa transferred to Turkey. Tbe
barbarity of the Turks led to aeveral Insurrections.
TCarly In the nineteenth century Cserny Oeorge placed
himself at tha head of the malcontents, and. aided
by Russia, succeeded after eight years of fighting
in securing the independence of his country by the
peace of Bucharest, May 28, 1812. The war was re
newed In ins, and the Turks prevailed.
In ins all Servia rose in arm under Mllosh Obren
oritch and after a successful war, obtained complete
eolf -government, Milosh being elected hereditary
prince.. Mllosh was compelled to abdicate in 1839,
and waa nominally succeeded by Ms son, Milan, who
died Immediately, leaving the throne to his brother,
Michael.' In 1842 this prince waa compelled to follow
the example of hla father and quit the country.
Alexander Kara-Georgevitch, son of Cserny George,
waa elected, but In December, 1KS8, he also was
forced to abdicate. Mllosh waa then recalled, but
survived hla restoration little more than a year. His
sm. Michael, succeeded him (189)) but was assassi
nated by the partisans of Prince Alexander, July 10,
MSB. The princely dignity waa then conferred oa
Milan Obrenovltch, grandnephew of Mllosh.
Independence I Recognise..
After the fall of rievna in the Russo-Turkls'ii war
of 1877-8, Mervla took up arms against Turkey, and by
the treaty Of Berlin (July 13, 1878) it obtained an ac
cession of territory and full recognition of Its inde
pendence. It wa again erected Into a kingdom In
1882. In 188S a ahort war took place between Servia
and Bulgaria, resulting In favor of tne latter. In
1889 Milan abdicated In favor of hla son. Prince Alex
ander, who became ruler aa Alexander I.
. In 1890 a regency ol three appointed aa guardian
of th young king practically controlled the govern
ment The radical alao gained a majority of the
national assembly and formed a cabinet. Factional
trouble made the first tew years of Alexander's
reign exceedingly stormy. In 1892 the three regents
dissolved the cabinet and a new one, composed of
liberals, came In. In 1883, Alexander, than 17 year
of age, took matter In hie own hands and decided
to aave the dynasty. He declared himself of age,
and took away tbe power of hla regeata and took
the reins. He appointed a cabinet, made up mostly
of moderate radicals, and hi action nearly precipi
tated a revolution. In 1894 Alexander appointed a
o-called nonpartisan cabinet and his father head
of th army, an act which cauned Rueala to break
off dlplomaUo relation with Servia In 1898. In 1894
the king alao annulled the new constitution and re
established that of IMS, giving himself more power.
But discontent and threatened uprisings caused an
other change to a freer . constitutional government
Flats ef Klwat Mile-.
MUaa and hi aon bad too many characteristics In
common to (et en well together, however, so Milan
went to the gambling resorts of Europe and finally
died an exile la Austria In 1901. One of the cause
ef th break between father and aon wa the king
betrothal and marriage t Draga Maschln In 1900.
8h waa 13 year older than th king and had been
lady In waiting to his mother. The Servian min
istry dsclarwd the proposed marriagti preposterous
and a menace to the state, and promptly restgned.
King Alexander paid no attention to opposition and
married Mme. Maaohln in "Belgrade August 6, 19PQ.
Though the marriage had been vlolenUy opvoeed by
official of th government the people apparently
had no objection and heaytlly cheered the bridal
party. The king took the precaution, however, to
line the etreete with troops. Disturbance and threat
ened revolution together with quarrels between the
king and hie wife kept the country In turmoil.
In June. 1903, a revolt occurred among army offi
cers and King Alexander, his wife and several of
his household were brutally murdervd In the palace
In Belgrade. The conspirators, comparing seme of
the principal statesmen and chief officers of th
army, communicated with Prince Peter, the . Kera
georgevltch pretender, in Geneva, and, having satis
fied themselves that he would accept the throne it.
the event of ita becoming vacant, they proceeded to
put their plan Into execution.
Mystery Snrrownda the riot.
, It I not wholly clear whether tha plot as orig
inally conceived Involved the aaaaaslnation of Alex
ander, th inference being that the murderoua scenes
la tbe palace in Belgrade resulted from the resist
ance which the conspirators encountered on the night
whan they aet forth to obtain from. Alexander hla
abdication and his pledge to leave Servia. Be thle
aa It may, the plot resolved itself Into a most savage
onalaught on tha defenseless king and queen by their
assailants, who, after having emptied their revolvere
on the 111-fated couple, aet to work to alash the body
of Draga with aabre until It had loat all human
ambiance, after which they pitched both corpse out
of th window into the garden below. On the fol
