The United States Neutral.
The neutrality proclamation Issued by Pres
ident Wilson officially recognizes the state of
war between the leading European nations and
warns all that we are not to take sides In the
To maintain strict neutrality Is obviously
the duty of this country. Having do entangling
alliances with any of the belligerents, and no
desire to be drawn Into the vortex, no effort
"should be spared to observe neutrality, and to
perform all the duties imposed upon a non
combatant country to exact observance of neu
tral rights by those at war with one another.
Fortunately, our dints tire from the original seat
of disturbance should greatly facilitate us In
such a policy, for we are not likely to come Into
direct contact except on. the high seas.
The maintenance of strict neutrality on the
part of the United States cannot, however, gov
ern the sympathies of our people. With our
population made up almost wholly of former
subjects of the different European countries, or
descendants of their former subjects, their sym
pathies are bound to be divided. The peculiar
combinations which this war presents must con
fuse those sympathies still further, as, for ex
ample, where friends of Britain entertain an
abhorrence Of Russia, or where admirers of the
German emperor have no patience with the
fierce Balkan bands.
It Is natural and Inevitable that Americans
will have a lively Interest in the fortunes ot the
war, regardless of our neutrality, and will sit

America'i Offer of Mediation.
While too much to expect that war-mad Eu
rope will at once leave off the passion for fight
log, President Wilson's proffered mediation is
nevertheless consistent with both our national
peace professions and our obligations under
The Hague tribunal. Its eventual acceptance
is n,o doubt within the probabilities, but not
until the warring nations have sufficiently felt
the force of one another's steel to be willing to
heed their own better judgment.
Failure on the part of . President Wilson to
have acted would have subjected our govern
ment to criticism, though with no prospect of
immediate response.' Bo long as The Hague
treaty both permits and requires us as a
stranger to the dispute to offer mediation, there
was nothing else for us to do and uphold our
reputation as a peace-loving nation.
Ii This What We Want?
Oue ot the constitutional amendments sub
mitted by the last Nebraska legislature for
popular ratification proposes to change our sys
tem of unanimous Jury verdicts, and to substi
tute verdicts by a five-sixth vote.
This change is urged as a matter ot judicial
reform to do away with the single obstinate
juror holding out against his fellows, either de
feating Justice pr forcing a new trial. Verdicts
by less than the full number of twelve Jurors,
it is pointed out, have been provided for in Mis
souri, Kentucky, Idaho, South Dakota, Wyoming
and Washington, and Nebraska la asked to fol
low the lead of these six state
Careful investigation discloses, however, that
the form of our proposed amendment carries
the five-sixths jury verdict, not only for civil
eases, but also for criminal cases where the of
fense is lefs than a felony. In this feature
only one state, Idaho, baa taken this departure
of withholding from any criminal on final trial
the presumption of innocence until adjudged
guilty by the unanimous finding ot a jury of
bis peers. In all the other states which per
mit verdicts In criminal cases without unanimity,
or by a jury of less than twelve, there Is a re
striction to courts not ot record, and presum
ably subject to appeal to courts of record. In
Nebraska conviction for offenses less than fel
onies may entail imprisonment in a county jail
up to one year, and the statutes are full ot mis
demeanor penalties for all sorts of minor law
violation, which would be afteoted by the pro
While The Bee la not hore arguing the points
at Issue, It believes the people of Nebraska
should know what the -amendment contemplate

'' Let Aliens Here Become Citizeni.
The bill Introduced in the house excluding
re-admission into the United States of all aliens
who leave to engage in the European war may,

well as to the native country. It tends to Intro

most serious objections of the anti-immigration-lsts'
would be removed, or greatly modified, by
such" legislation. The foreigner who cornea her

HOt'TM OMAHA, Neb., A'if. 6-To the
tdltor of The Ree: I noticed a preaa dis
patch In The Bee of yesterday that 30U.00S
women are expected to vote In Kansas.
It every woman In Kanras who Is ll
ibla to a vote casts a ballot today, I
doubt If any MD.Oni) or any SO.ono will vote,
from the supreme Indifference they have
shown In the registration in Kaneas. I
doubt If there are as many as tno.000 In
the state anyhow who can register and
vote. The dlepatch was evidently meant
to deceive the general public.

WHEATLAND, Wyo., Aug. 8.--TO the
Editor of The Bee: la the sneering, con
temptuous tone In which that woman (I
will not csll her a lady) from Council
Bluffs replies to Rev. Hult a sample
of what we may expect when equal suf

more convincing evidence of the' essen
tial infidelity and Immorality so char
acterise of the feminist movement Is
afforded than her discourteous, not to
say Insulting, remarks? When equal suf
frsglsts feel emboldened to attack the
Bible and to denounce St Paul as a sax
maniac, are we not warranted In believ
ing that feminism was conceived In the
spirit of ansrehy and Is now about to be
brought forth In rebellion and revolution?
Tho Rev. Hult Impresses me as a
thinker and a man of thorough culture
and wide reading. Whatever he writes
la characterised by marked distinction In
both thought and style. He affords us a
welcome relief from the dreary drivel and
silly sophistries wtilch the equal suf

. What Is Contraband?
From the New York Tlmee.)
The question whit constitutes contraband of war
Is csuslng the greaUst concern to shippers, and the
perplesed state of the International law n the ques
tion Is making It difficult for steamship men to know
when they are carry, n a cargo that Is reasonably
safe from conflmatlo.i, in the event of further declar
ations of war In Europe.
Millie the definition of rontrsbond Is elsstlc, there
Is now an International list of articles which can never
at any time be contraband. The most important of
these articles to America Is cotton, which heads the
list of noncontrahend goods. Of almost equal Im
portance Is the fact that gold is on the conditional
contraband list. Oold becomes contraband- If It ,1a
shipped to a nation involved In war, and is liable to
seizure by ships of the enemy of that country.
Cotton wss placed on the noncontraband list at
the London naval conference, although It Had been
treated as contraband by Russia during the RuSso
Japanese war. While the tandem declaration has
not been ratified by all nations. It is practically cer
tain, according to Dr. Ellery C. Stowe. assistant pro
fessor of International law at Columbia university,
that Its shipment would not be Interfered with by any
Euopean nation in case of a general war.
Absolute contraband, which Is always liable to
seisure, consists of war material, gus, ammunition,
military vehicles, ete. Other articles; except those
on the noncontraband list, may be treated as con
traband by a belligerent after giving notice to neutral
nations of the articles which it has classed as liable
Conditional contraband Is liable to seisure at no
time except when It Is destined to tr.w territory of
an enemy, and then It can be seised with as little
ceremony as If It were actual war material. Artels
35 of the London declaration Is as follows: -
"Conditional contraband Is not liaofe to capture
except when found on board a vessel bound for ter
ritory belonging to er occupied by an enemy or for
the armed forces of the enemy, and when It is not
to be discharged at an Intervening neutral pert The
ship's papers are conclusive proof both -as to the
voyage In which the vessel Is engaged and as to the
port of discharge of the goods, unless its Is found
clearly out of the course Indicated by its papers and
unable to give adequate reasons to Justify such de
viation." Article 34 is as follows
"The following articles, susceptible of use in war
ss well as tor purposes of peace, may without notice
be treated as contraband of war, under the "name of
"1. Foodstuffs. ,
"S. Forage and grain suitable for feeding animals.
"1 Clothing, fabrics for clothing, and boots and
shoes suitable for use In war.
"4. Gold and silver In coin or bullion; paper
. Vehicles of ail kinds available for use In war
and their component parts.
"a. Vessels, ore ft, and boats of all kinds;- float
ing docks, parts of docks, and their component parts.
"I. Railway materials, both fixed and rolling stock
and material for telegraphs, wireless telegraphs, , and
"I. Balloons and flying machines and their com-.
ponent parts, together with accessories and articles
recognisable as Intended for use In connection with
balloons and flying machines.
"I. Fuel; lubricants.
"10. Powder and explosives not specially prepared
for use In wsr. .
"11. Barbed wire and Implements for fixing and
"It Horseshoes and shoeing, materials. .
'ii Harness and saddling. : t
"14. Field glasses, telescopes, chronometers, and
all . kinds of nautical instruments."
- - V. - ..." T.-'-r;;l
A neutral vessel .la liable to capture-When more
than one-half of its cargo Is contraband. . The war
r ess al making the selxure msy measure its contra
band by value, volume, weight, or the freight rate,
and if It can bring the contraband up -to more than
one-half of the cargo by any of the four methods
It may make a prise of the ship.
The following are the articles which ' can never
be classed aa contraband, according to article 2$. of
the London declaration: . r
"1. Raw cotton, wool, silk, jute, flax, hemp, and
other raw materials ot the terrible industries and
yards of the same.
"2. Oil seeds and nuts; copra. -
". Rubber, resins, gums, and laces; 'hops.
"4. Raw hides and horns; bones and Ivory.
"6. Natural and artificial manures, Including
nitrates and phosphates for agricultural purposes.
. Metallic ores. 1
"7. Earths, clays, lime, chslk, stone, including
msirble, bricks, slates and tiles.
8. Chlnaware and glass.
. Paper and paper making materials.
"10. Soap, paint and colors, including articles ex
clusively used in their preparation aad varnish. ',
"1L Bleaching powder, soda, ashes, caustic soda,
salt cake, ammonia, and sulphate ot copper.
"It. Precious and semi-precious stones, pearls,
mother of peart and coral.
"IX. Clocks and watches. "
'14. Fashions and fancy good a
"15. Feathers of all kinds, hairs and bristles.
17. Articles of household furniture ana decora
tion; office furniture and requisites."
Of course, all noncontraband articles may be
seised by a belligerent If thay are conveyed In a
ship flying an enemy's flag or If more than half
of the remainder of the cargo Is contra hand.
One article enacted by the London naval confer
ence, -which will operate to the advantage' of the
United 6tatea in case of a European war. aocordlng
to authorities on International law. Is the defini
tion of "condltkonal contraband' Under the declara
tion, foodstuffs and commodities, which are not war
materials la themselves, can only be declared con
traband when they are destined for the territory of a
nation at war.
For Instance, If this country received orders from
Germany for wheat or flour, it could make the ship
ment to Amsterdam, which would probably be neutral,
and it could be forwarded thence to Germany. Under
the old rule a nation at war with Germany could
seise the cargo en the ground that Germany was Its
