Article I, Fectlon 6, Conatltutlon of Nehraaka.
This Is the palladium of free speech and free
press In this country by w hich Individual liberty
is safeguarded against tyranny and oppression.
Po long as the constitutions! guaranties remain
unsuspnded we can have no censorship of
peerh and press, and these guaranties hold
good against invasion from whatever source, In
cluding the police, the military or the courts.
If a candidate for office could by Injunction
prevent newspapers from publishing records or
documents exposing unfitness or unreliability,
he could likewise gsg all opposing criticism and
If Tweed could have Invoked one of his Judi
cial tools to enjoin the New York Times from
tsklng off the Hd he would have remained in
definitely in undisputed possession of New York
as bis personal province.
If by aid of a restraining order Lorlmer
could have closed the columns of the Chicago
Tribune, and other newspapers, turning the
searchlight upon his bought election, he would
still be holding his seat in the United States
If Bartley could have stopped The Bee, and
other unpurchasable newspapers, by a friendly
court order from uncovering hla thievery he
would have gotten away without being called to
account for his misdeeds.
The latest effort of a desperate candidate
for office to create a press censorship by injunc
tion cannot succeed, for if It held against The
Bee the door would be opened for truth-stifling
by similar censorship over all newspapers, and
the constitution would be nullified.
Foreign War Loans.
It Is to be expected that the foreign nations
Involved In war will bid for financial help from
the United States, so there is nothing surprising
in the rumored effort to float a French war loan
in this country. While' as a rule ware are fi
nanced by appeal to the patriotic support of the
people at home, there is nothing unusual In the
practice of inviting foreign capital to come to
the rescue. It Is, moreover, entirely legitimate
for citizens of neutral countries, If they see fit,
to loan thlr money to belligerent governments
on such terms as aro mutually satisfactory. Our
government could not properly promote such a
loan, but individuals may on their own account.
It is the excessive risk Involved In such invest
ments that makes it difficult to raise money Jin
that way, and the risk, therefore, has to be off
set by high interest rates and discount sales.
If we had surplus money hunting more profita
ble fields foreign war loans would not disturb
us. The undesirable feature Is that money sent
abroad is withdrawn from domestic channels,
and the competitive demand is likely to make
borrowers here also pay more.
A Tribute to Statesmanship.
The wide-spread demand for the re-election
of Senator Root notwithstanding his announced
determination to retire Is both a tribute to his
greatness and to the fact that the American
people have not lost the power of appreciating
real statesmanship. And when we stop to re
flect upon the caliber of many men crowding
public life today, this Is no small matter. It
1 evident that. Ellhu Root is recognized by all
fair Judges as the brainiest man In our public.

Voicing the sentiment of a large number of
the best papers from many states representing
different politics, the New York Times, a great
democratic newspaper, pleads for the retention
of Ellhu Root In the senate, where the country
needs him for "guidance and conservation," ad

called for by the people of other states and
various parties? Th experience stands out In
as bold relief from the ordinary ru.t of affairs
as does Senator Root from the average politician
of the day.
' ' Kindred Question.
A most Interesting phase of this Japanese
question is to be found In the immigration de
mands Japan is today making, not only upon
tha Untted States, but upon Australia and Can
ada aa well. Suppose Japan gained her point
with us, would she not press it all the harder on
the other two governments?
' For obvious reasons England is iu no posi
tion to afford comfort to Japan in her land con
troversy with us. Whatever her alliance with the
little brown men may amount to, It is not going
to carry it to the extremities of this question.
England wants nothing more than peace and
harmony with Australia and Canada. She knows
perfectly well that, If anything, opposition to
Japan's Immigration demands is stronger in her
own provinces, especially Canada, than in the
Jingoes seeking a scarecrow on which to
hang their fears of a war with Japan might
think about this.
Where the Colonel Overlooked a Point
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt Is generally ac
claimed the shrewdest politician of them all, but
he evidently is still tgnorast of the fine points
of the jame. Had he only been duly advised
be would have applied to a distinguished Judge
of our district court for a restraining order pro
hibiting any newspaper or campaign orator pub
lishing or referring to his statement 1n which he
assured the publlo he would not again be a
candidate for president.
The most charitable view to take of the
wind-up ravings and antics of our Water board
boss Is that he is not responsible. He has been
for nearly a month alternating between autoing
and orating, night and day, with, little rest and
at fearsome tension, so that physically and men
tally he is not his normal self.
Uncle Bam, the advance agent of peace,
knocks on the door of Europe tor admission and
the privilege of showing his samples, and Is po
litely told to have a seat and wait till the bouaea
are more disengaged.
When War Was Really Hell
Graphio Recollections of Experi
ences of Fifty Years Ago in August.
y cx.xjrr Jaxcmtr8T,
SHxteeath Xowa Infantry.
On August 8 1 read an article In an Omaha pamr
eonrernlna- the confedi rate stockade at Andemonv11.
The writer waa correct. In the main, but put afloat
aome grlevoua error I cannot allow to pass unnotlcc.1.
Mention la made frequently of aurKeons, and of the
continual difficulty they had In caring for our sick, by
reason of a acarctty of medical auppliea. Tlila will
make a survivor of Andersonvllle smile. I was a
prisoner there and In ether euch hells for nearly elKht
months. During that whole time I never aaw a phy
sician or surgeon on duty In any place of captivity.
I never aaw a prisoner receive a dose of medicine or
a remedy of any kind.. I never heard of such an In
stance. I never aaw or heard of a wounded man re
ceiving treatment of any kind except from hla com
panlona In misery. The alck In Anderaonvill lay on
the bara ground undei a pitiless sun till death ended
their anguish. There waa no shelter of any kind for
any one aave that Improvised with rags and tattered
piece of blanket. Many prisoners dug holes In the
ground and lived and slept in them. Toward the cloaa
of summer 1WH), when thousands of Inmatea had been
aent away, aom open eheds were built at the north
end of the prison pen, and Into these tha elrk and
dying were crammed till the eheds would contain no
more. There waa a hoepltal" eomewhere in the woods
outside the pen, but It wa only a cluster of rotten
tents where a few hundred men at a time laid on the
ground till they died without medicine, without care,
almost without food, and often without food entirely.
Proof of what Andersonvllle was Is shown by
nearly 14,000 graves In the National cemetery there.
The greatest mortality occurred In" August, when the
death rat rose to lion men a day. The naked bodies
of the dead were thrown Into wagons, one on top of
another, like slaughtered hogs, and hauled oft to the
graveyard. The vermin Infested clothing stripped from
the dead waa, by the prisoners, divided among- needy
On twenty-six acrea of ground, no man had "forty
square feet to occupy." There waa scarcely room
enough for the men to sleep at night, for one-third of
th camp whs a black, Blinking swamp. The rebel
sergeants, who calle.l the roll every morning, told us
that there were 36,00r men In the pen. For feeding
purposes thy had divided ua Into drovea of 1.000 men
each, each drove having a number. Thus we could
usually guess very closely concerning our total num
ber, although men were dying fast, and new prison
era frequently arrived.
We aro told that Captain Henry Wlrs did what
ever he could to lessen the horrors of th pta.ee, and
bewailed his Inability to do more for ua. An effort
la made to have him appear aa a sort of scapegoat
and martyr to th raging passions of war. I deny
auch a atatement point blank. Wlrx waa a monster
of cruelty. I aaw him a hundred tlmea, and' often, by
compulsion, heard hla . obscene abuse of prisoners.
Even the rebel guards cowered In his presence. He
waa hanged at Washington, City, not for being Jailor
at Andersonvllle. Ilo was hanged for murder. Ho
waa thoroughly convicted of having murdered a prla
oner with his own hand. Two other cases of murder
could have been proven against him. lie waa a for
eign mercenary, who deserted from theunkm army
after th battle of Bull Run, and who received a com
mission In the confederate service, and was placed In
charge of tho military prisoner, first at Richmond
and afterwards at Andersonvllle. Hla nam and
memory deserve execration.
Nor were w moved from Andersonvllle from mo
tive of humanity, but because th enemy feared
Sherman would capture ua. Andersonvllle only ap
peared wore than other aouthern stockades because
of the great number of men confined there. During
th winter that followed, many half naked prisoner
frore to death. I saw deafl bodies of such men at tha
Mlllen stocked and at tha Florence (3. C), atockade.
I waa a captive at Andersonvllle, Mlllen, Blackshear,
Savannah, Charleston. Florence, Wilmington and
Goldsboro, N. C. The treatment Of prisoners wa
everywhere th aunt-brutality and tarvatlon, To
thla atatement I make theae exceptions: At Savannah
a band of ladles cam out to our camp with delivery
wagons and servants and gave us hot coffee and
loavea of bread. Coffee was then a costly rarity In
the aouth, the whole coastline bolng blockaded. A
similar Instance occurred at Charleston, although the
city wa under the tlr of the union fleet. At dolds
boro, N. C, the guards attempted to drive off a party
of ladle who came out to relieve us, but they refused
to leave, and tossed loave of bread across th dead
line to ua till their aupply wa exhausted.
When Wilson' cavalry captured Andersonvllle,
only about 2,600 emaciated wretches were found thcrs,
and to escap their vtngeanc Wlrs fled to General
Wilson and Implored protection. At prison hoadquar
Urs wa found an official order from General Winder,
Issued at th time Ptoneman led an unsuccessful cav
alry raid on Andersonvllle. It read:
"If you learn that the Yanke cavalry are within
fifty mllea of Andersonvllle, "open fire on th prison
ers with grapa and canister."
At last accounts that order was "on. file In th
archives of the War department at Washington City.
Opportune death from dlseas ' saved " Wlpder from
death on the acaffold, for th government had evral
matters to settle with him. ...
It Is true that Grant opposed exchange' f prison
er on th ground that most of them were deserters..
HI assumption waj false. Nine-tenth of u became
prisoner aa a mer cholc between captivity and Im
mediate death. Aa ait instance, my own regiment
waa taken In desperate combat, after capturing what
'waa left of two region nts and three companies of the
enemy, on th tid of July, before Atlanta. Grant's
real reeaon waa that he paroled 37,000 men at Vlcka
burg. and every man of them waa forced to take up
arms as soon a he camped within the -wnemy'a llnea.
Father Hamilton (I am not a Catholic), wa th
only rpreentaUv of Christian ciericala that waa
ever known to enter our prison pena He told th
authorities at Andersonvllle:
"If you cannot exchange those men and cannot
feed them, parole them and Bend them to Sherman.
Tou have no right to starve them."
Colonel Chandler, a confederate Inspecting officer
who vtBited ua, gave the Richmond government some
what aimllar advice. Throughout the war th con
federal oldler were poorly fed. There wss not only
a frequent scarcity f ratkna in their camps. . but
there waa alo a glaring lack of adminltratlv ability
In their department Of aupplle.
It Is for th welfare of the country that the civil
war and Its Ula be aptedlly forgotten, When attempt
la made, homever. to glosa over the horror of Ander
aonvlll. or find light apologWa for them, it rouses
deep reentmnt and rekindle emotion that houU
Bleep forever. Andronvllle waa a disgrae to mod

our nation ahoulddlsarm and remain helpless whn

The ftlnrulnr Amenities of Poll Ilea.
OMAHA, Aug. 18. To the Editor of The
Bee: I am not at all -certain whether
the matter I am about to wrlto of should
be entitled: "The Amenities of Politics,"
or "The Amenities or Religion." But
let your readers decide. I know there Is
mighty little religion about tho matter.
Mr. Matthew Gerlng of Plnttsm'outh Is
on of the republican candidates for
congress in the First district. One of th
thing started against hia fitness for th
office is that he is a Roman Catholic
He Is not. He and his family have been
long connected with the Episcopal church
In Hattsmouth. .Ills sister, Ml&s Gerlng,
Is one of our most prominent women in
tho diocese.- I have been asked to vouch
for this In the absence of Bishop Wil
liam. I do; but, of course, too late
now to have any effect one way or the
other. But suppose he were a Roman
Catholic, what effect should that have,
either for or against Mr. Qering a fitness
to represent his district In congress, a
a republican? If I were a voter in th
First district I would mot certainly vote
against Mr. Gerlng In November, should
he receive the republican nomination on
Tuesday; In spite of hia being an Episco
palian. My judgment would be, that
while he is right In his religion, to the
extent that he lives it; yet he Is wrong
1n his politics! I would vote for Mr.
Magulre Instead, who 1 a sure enough
Roman Catholic, simply because he is a
democrat, as I am in politic.
I cannot ee for the life of me what a
man's peculiar religious confession ha
to do wit his fitness to represent any
district in congress or anywhere else In
political llf. His personal character
should hav much to do with his being
chosen a representative of certain politi
cal convictions, but hla rollgious convic
tion nothing at all! I write this, too
lute ftideed to have any possible result
on Mr. Gerlng' political fortunes in th
primary;, but not too . late. I hope, to
rebuke that narrow Intolerance that la
seeking to make head once more among
us. Writer and speakers all over our
generous west are seeking ugain 'to
arouse the Intolerant spirit of a narrow
Protestantism against .the Roman Catho
lic church and Its people by the most,
manifestly transparent falsehoods, nearly
all of which were exploded twenty year
ago, during the A. P. A., propaganda.
Locally you, air, took a very honorable
part or your father did In breaking up
.the wretched intolerance of that move
ment. Such narrow Intolerance should
find no place In our ' generous American
life, in which a man Is Judged for, what
h Is, rather than for the peculiar type
of religious confession he proposes.
Womae In History.'
SOUTH OMAHA, Neb., Aug. 18. -To the
Editor of The Bee: The suffragists have
been accused of not being informed on
history by th Hon. Ant I Agnew, who
says, "SemlramlB was an ancient queen
of Assyria, who conquered all the civil
ized nation of her time." Semiramls la
treated as purely a legendary figure,
daughter of a fish goddess, miraculously
preserved and fed by a dove. She haa
had a legendary existence from ao B. C.
to U10, A. D. Prof. Lehmann Haupt of
Berlin In lt10 proclaimed he had restored
her to her rightful place in Babylonian
How utterly absurd to attribute th
conquest of all civilised nations to this
mythological or uncertain character.
Our antl friend said that the Hebrew
queen "Jexebel wa on of the wickedest
women who ever ' lived. ' Jezebel was
never a reigning queen; her husband,
Ahab, was' king of Israel twenty-two
years: It was he who reared an altar and
established worship to Baal. "Ahab did
mor to provoke the Lord God of Israel
to anger than all the kings of Israel that
were before him." I Kings, xvl 33. It la
not aa unnatural conseqilenre that -his
wife should become a murderess under the
Influence of awicked and idolatrous king,
for so long a period. The aU calls at-'
tentlon to the dismemberment of Poland
by Catherine of Russia aa "one of th
greatest crime of history." Th un
perverted truth Is. the partition of Poland
was made by her three neighbors, Austria,
Germany (formally Prussia) and Russia
It should be rule!, however, that a larg
part of the territory that Russia ac
quired had been once Russian territory.
Another distortion. The antl writer
stated that Catharine de Medici ordered
the St. Bartholomew massacre simply to
appease hr "cruel instincts."
Tb St. Bartholomew massacre wa the
crimination of a long and bitter quarrel
between the Catholics end the Huganots
as the Catvlntets were called). Cath
arine dl Medici did not plan the maseacre
alone, she had men consorts who par
tlcipated with her In planning the deed.
The grand and noble Queen Victoria did
not escape the venom of the antl. Any
hlsh achool pupil knows Queen Victoria
bs loved and esteemed as one of the
meet humane and tolerant sovereigns th
world ever knew.
It was a thousand Colorado women
ho marched to the governor's palaoe, as
voters, and demanded of Governor Am
nions to call for federal assistance In
stopping the bloodshed at Ludlow mines.
It wa there in the cold they waited for
an answer from President Wilson, which
was favorably given before the women
disbanded. We shall ask Mr. Agnew 1o
brush the cobwebs out of hi own slum
bering memory and ceaae perverting
divine, ancient and modern history. We
ask for an expression of facta and not
unlimited, unfounded conceit.
