Civilized Warfare.
The mere combination of the words, "civ
ilized warfare" suggests an Irreconcilable in
congruity. How can warfare and civilization go
together? How can a people who boast how far
they have rlnen above savagery and barbarism
Justify an appeal to arms, sure to work bavoo
and slaughter among countless thousands who.
Individually, hsve no grievance whatever
against one another? Yet all the books on his
tory and International law tell us that civilized
warfare Is a great advance and improvement
on the kind of war that went before it.
While war Is a resort to force and a defiance
of law, there sre laws of war which civilized
nations are expected to observe even in re
lapse to mvagery. The honorable enemy will
not attack defenseless civilians nor violate the
sanctity of the home, nor bombard unfortified
towns, nor attack places that are fortified with
out due notice and ample time to noncombat-
snts to withdraw. The honorable enemy will
not take or destroy private property without
paying for It, nor kill prisoners taken la battle,
nor disregard the flag of truce, nor use explo
sive bullets, poison wells, scatter germ-laden
disease, nor torture men or women to force
them to give Information. All these horrifying
and debarred offenses have been committed
from time to time In uncivilized warfare, and
many of them also, we regret to say, In warfare
between belligerents who pretended to be civ
ilised, as, for example, In the recent Balkan
troubles, and In our closer-to-home Mexican
revolution.
In sum snd substance, civilised warfare, at
best, though, perhsps, not so brutaj as the fight
ing. In past ages, Is still not very civilized in
fact. It only shows how far we have to go to
reach real civilization.
The Tragedy Side of the Trip.
While every effort Is being made towsrd
the safe return of all the American tourists
marooned In Europe, the tragedy aide of the
trip for many of them has not received due em
phasis. Merely to suffer discomfort on the re
turn oceanic voyage or to be compelled to stand
unexpected Impositions would not call for ex
treme solicitude. When we remember, how-
ever, trait the army of American tourists
abroad is by no means composed exclusively ot
millionaires and ease-enjoying plutocrats, but,
on the contrary, is made up largely of hard
working men and women carrying out long
cherished plans for which they had been saving
money for years, the destruction of half-realised
hopes becomes a much more serious matter.
For these people, who number Into the tens
of thousands, their trip to Europe Is a dream, or
rewtard, looked forward to with earnestness and
eagerness. It represents a long succession of
sacrifices and self-denials and many a post
poned vacation. To most of them this par
ticular trip to Europe is the only such expe
dition they have had any Idea of taking, and to
go again under more favorable circumstances Is
quite out of the question unless a "rich uncle"
dies and makes them victims of a legacy. .What
was counted on to be a round of pleasure,
recreation and Instruction Is by a declaration of
war transformed over night Into an experience
of nerveiTcklng disappointment and both, men
tal and physical suffering; .
The tragedy ot It la sad to contemplate, be
cause In so many cases wholly trremedlal. '
Shall a Doctor TeU the Troth!
"Shall a doctor tell the truth," Is the subject
of a thought-provoking article In the current
Outlook, in which the drift ot the writer's argu
ment seems to be that truth-telling Is a danger-
pus professional practice. A. number of In
stances are cited, from, presumably, actual ex
perience, In which response to the appeal of the
stricken for a doctor's honest opinion proved
harmful, and even fatal. One man who was
losing his sight committed suicide when told
that he was condemned to blindness, and an
other, when Informed he could not recover, died
forthwith of heart failure as a result of the
shock.
Conceding that only 111 can result from ven
turing an opinion ot a patient's expectation ot
life, the question Is carried a logical step fur
ther: "What answer shall a physician give when
asked as to the nature of his patient's disease?
Shall he admit It la tuberculosis, kidney trouble,
heart disease or cancer, as the case may be, or
shall be be more vague, avoiding the exact
nature of the ailment?" And the conclusion to
which, we are brought is that "the proper course
must depend upon two factors, namely, the
character of the patient and the ability of the
physician to express himself clearly and tact
fully." ,
Taking it for granted, of course, that when
the doctor withholds the truth he believes he
Is acting for the benefit of the patient, and not
for his own benefit, this still leaves the doctor
in the comfortable position of being able to tell
the recovered patient from what dread disaster
his Invaluable medical treatment has saved him,
or to assure the sorrowing mourners that he
did not divulge the serious nature ot the Illness
for fear ot the bad effect Where the physician 1
deliberately dissembles c evades, not for the
patient's benefit, but to nurse along a profitable
but hopeless case, we take it there Is no defense
to be offered.
Bo It gets back after all to the main propo
sition, which Is the honest and. Intelligent ex
ercise of good Judgment. And no Judgment Is
honest unless animated by the sole purpose on
the part of the doctor to restore health or to
ease suffering without destroying the always
possible chance that something unforseen may
produce a turn for the better.
run the needs. Only forty little ones may be
cared for at the Astor place at one time, a mere
drop In the bucket as compared with the vast
armies of needy children In New York's tene
ments. Yes, but whst is to hinder other philan
thropists from founding other such farms? No
doubt this Is whst wtll happen, it Is too fine a
thing not to catch the fancy of other good folk
looking for opportunities for serving humanity.
Fathers and mothers will have tenderer
feelings for the Astor now. Yet this Is but one
of countless benefactions they snd other rich
men and women are constantly making for the
relief and happiness of the race. Why stint the
praise? It gives a much sweeter teste to life
to make the most Instead of the least of these
things, and It tends to allay that Insidious agi
tation of classlsm, which Is wholly destructive
In all of Its tendencies.
A Worthy Philanthropy.
That 1100,000 baby farm founded by the
Astors is not a freak philanthropy, as Its name
might suggest; It represents one of the most
practical and worthy benefactions made In re
cent years. Mr. and Mrs. Astor have put that
amount into a beautiful place near New York,
City with brooks, trees, grass and birds for lit
tle sick children of the squalid quarters. There
they may go and stay until fully restored. There
they may open their eyes upon a new world.
a real world filled with all the fine things a
child s heart craves and a child's body
thrives on.
It takes additional sums for ODeratlna- ex
penses and these are left to the provision of
other good folk with plenty of money. Surely

"The Old Order Chang-eth."
For those who like to Judge corporate Inter
ests and "big business" solely by "the-people-be-damned"
and "I-would-have-done-buslness-wlth-the-devil"
standards there should be rich
food for thought in what has come to be known
as "Mlaltland'a prayer."
Samuel R. Maitland Is boiler house water
tender for the United States Steel corporation,
at Newcastle, Pa., and, like many other em
ployes, owns stock in the corporation. He at
tended the annual meeting of the company, pre
sided over by President E. II. Gary. In report
ing on working conditions he pronounced them
excellent and satisfactory to the men. He enu
merated a few such Improvements as the clean
ing away of weeds and the parking ot grounds,
the establishment of playgrounds for the em
ployes' children, the employment of visiting
nurses for the employes' sick, the "safety first"
campaign, modern sanitation, care of cripples
and afflicted. Then he said, "We ought to look
up and thank Ood for this corporation which is
taking care of humanity in a large way," and
asked if there would be any objection to his
praying. "Of course, there Is no objection.'1
said Judge Gary, and this was "Msltland's
praysr:"
Our Ood, we thank The for the official and
theae good men who have taken such an intereat in
tha welfare of humanity, and rejoice in our hearts for
tha bleased privilege of looking up to Tha In thank
fulness for it And we would pray for the man who
works and for all who keep u tog-ether as one great
family and organization. In' Thy name w ask It.
Aman.
This brings us a long way forward from the
old dictum and creed. It shows for a fact that
"The old order changeth" even In the relations
of employe and employer in the great industries
of the land. It Is a sure sign of a new era, an
era of mutual Interest, of mutual confidence, of
mutual respect between these two great essen
tial elements of Industry. It makes one be
lieve in the possible success of the Golden Rule
in "big business." It Is a sign of peace and
progress and prosperity for all. It avenges in
tolerance and vindicates reason. It punishes
class passion and rewards united effort, It re
veals is new hope and banishes despair, and
should be a tremendous inspiration to all that
such an ideal Is possible by mutual Intent and
action.
The Eee'i War Newt.
Nothing Is so gratifying ' to The Bee than
that It Is never Galled upon to make labored
efforts to get away from a damning reputation
for faking. Aa a consequence, everywhere and
particularly in Omaha, The Bee Is reaping the
reward of a constant vigilance against spurious
news In the past while contemporaries that
have been faking and buncoing their readers
right along cannot disarm suspicion and are
shunned by people who went to have reliable
news.
In the stress of the most colossal war In his
tory, as always, The Bee maintains Its news su
periority. By exclusive arrangements with the
New York World, and at no inconsiderable ex
pense, The Bee readers have the benefit of the
best war news cable service' that is available.
They have this in addition to the full Associated
Press reports.
The Bee is issuing extras with up-to-the-minute
bulletins from the most dependable
sources about the progress of the great world,
conflict, and will continue to do so, and the peo
ple will continue to look to The Bee, knowing
that never having mads a practice vof faking
It Is not going to begin now.
Nothing- Sacred to a Traitor.
It being tha intent and purpoaa of this act not

That is what the vote-chasing Water board
boss wrote Into the water district law, which,
taking God to witness, he solemnly swore he
would fully execute and obey.
Plainly, the oath taken as water commis
sioner to observe the law requiring him to keep
out of partisan politics is no more sacred to him
than the pledge of fealty which, aa member of
the republican national committee, he ruth
lessly violated by giving treasonable aid to the
enemy as against the standard bearer for whose
success be had assumed the duties of one of the
responsible campaign managers.
There ought, In our Judgment, to be one
revision of registration day before each primary

alt la each, ot the respective voting districts for
the accommodation of the voters. We regret
to say that the administration ot the registra
tion machinery under our new election commis
sioner system seems to be particularly designed
to inconveniencing and discouraging the voter
as much as possible, and quite unnecessarily so,
when It ought to offer every reasonable encour
agement to Induce him to vote.

THE WATCH ON THE RHINE.
"The Watch on the Rhine" waa written
by Max Schneckenburger. a Wurttemberg
manufacturer. In 1R40. when France waa
threatening the' left bank of the Rhine.
It was aet to music by Carl Wllhelm. and
during thi Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71
waa adopted aa the national folk hymn
and rallying cry of the army.
A voice resounds like thunder-peal,
'Mid dashing waves and clang of ateel:
"The Rhine, the Rhine, the German
Rhine!
Who guards today my stream divine?"
CHORUS.
Dear fatherland, no danger thine:
Firm stand thy sons to watch the Rhine!
They stand, a hundred thousand atrong,
Quick to avenge their country'a wrong;
With filial love their bosoms swell.
They'll guard the sacred landmark well!
The dead of a heroic race
From heaven look down and meet their
gase;
They swear with dauntless heart, "O
Rhine.
Be German as this breast of mine!"
While flows one drop of German blood,
Or sword remains to guard thy flood.
While rifle rests in patriot hand
No foe shall tread thy sacred strand!
Our oath resounds, the river flows.
In golden light our banner glowa;
Our hearts will guard thy stream divine:
The Rhine, the Rhine, the Oerman Rhine!
