Appeals to the People.
Ererrone must be Impressed with the
earnest fie of the appeals which the various
sovereigns of wsrrlng Europe are making to the
patriotism and valor of their respective peoples.
Eloquently the kaiser, the tzar, the king of Eng
land and the aged emperor of Austria-Hungary
have southt to stir the blood of their subjects
(or tbelr countries and rally the troops In the
field, until their souls are animated with the
martial spirit. ,
And our own chief magistrate sends out an
appeal to our people, but of peace, not of war.
fortunately ftr us and pity the American who
does not appreciate It our nation Is not at war.
But that makes' tbe appeal of President Wilson
for calmness, consideration and fairness none
theless Important. He urges us to refrain from
manifesting our partisanship and prejudices, if
we have them, as between the opposing nations,
first, because our government stands the friend
of all the belligerents. As the president makes
plain, we cannot hope td preserve our national
neutrality except by preserving our Individual
neutrality. A nation such as ours must be In
tbe concrete exactly what Its people are Individ
ually. It would be a form of hypocrisy for a
government to pretend neutrality If Its people
were persisting In Impassioned partisanship.
But another and, If possible, more cogent
reason counsels us as Americans, who love peace
and respect our European neighbors, to heed
tbe president's appeal and refrain from taking
sides, and that is that we are largely made up
as a people from tbe constituent elements of the
various nations now at war In Europe, and we
are going to continue to live together here on
this continent after the war Is over.
The Primary in Donglai County.
While returns on the primary election have
been much delayed,, the outcome In ' Douglas
county Is definitely Indicated. Here the leaders
for standard-bearer on the opposing tickets are
Governor Morehead and Mr. Howell, respectively,
and. the momentum of their following has car
ried with them most of the candidates linked up
with them." Mr. Howell has a right to be par
ticularly self-satisfied over his showing In hta
home county. On the republican side It Is Inter
esting to note that despite loud outcry about
'machine,'' the onfy machine that was fully
manned, and In successful working order, was
the "Fontenelle machine," on which' Mr. Howell
rode, and that on the democratic side the terri
fying "Dahlman machine" seems to have slipped
several cogs. The distractions of war will, we
take H, klndy come to the rescue to provide a
lull In the political strife until the lines are re
formed for the subsequent campaign that will
end only with the onslaught at the polls In No
vember. In' the meanwhile, for the outcome In
tbe state as a whole, patience will be required
until the conclusive fuller returna are In.
' Reform and the Pulpit.
, That' fourteen ministers In the Ban Joaquin val
ley have within the lust six months lost their paJ
toratea through meddllnc with reform movements
which they should have let alouo was tha assertion
mads yesteiday by Rev. Curtis S. Tanner of the
Uncoln Park Presbyterian church before the meet
ing of evangelical ministers at the First Baptlat
church.-ami Fruuclsco Chronicle.
The Rev. Mr. Tanner proceeds to say that
reforming U not. the province ot the preacher;
(hat, the preacher should, keep out of the lime
light; that temperance and social evil problems
do not belong to his scope. That, of course,
arouses the retort, "Vbat. la the minister of the
gospel to havo.no part In opposing these pivotal
evils?" Probably no one ever thought of saying
so, for It la generally admitted .that, the church
has a very definitive part In It, but that it la
chiefly by Inspiration. ! ' .
The only reason, as many see it, "why certain
admitted evils continue so widespread la .because
tfiera has been too little of that Influence that
inspires men and women to do right and live
decently. We are far enough along in .this
country with temperance reform to see that. the.
progress of the present la largely along educa
tional lines, Just as the progress of the future la
likely to be. And back of this kind ot progress
Is Inspiration. Medical science la exerting a
potent Influence agalast excessive drinking to
day, but, however righteous the cause, medical
science proceeds on '.the theory that teaching
and not fighting Is Ita province.
Let the 'teacher and the. preacher and. the
fighter each do his beat Id hie own field, and
together they will accomplish something, while
If they all stop teaching and preaching and go In
only, for .fighting, but partial and '.doubtful re
sults tan' be -looked" for. .)', .
An Exhibition of Deep Value.
The value of the annual tractor demonstra
tion at Fremont lies not alone In the display of
modern farming machinery, but also In the em
phasis Istd on scientific agriculture. In which
Nebraska has taken a prominent position. It Is
well In this very practical manner to keep be
fore our farmers the Importance of modern in
tensive methods. No state holds out richer re
wards for tbe proper cultivation ot the aoll and
care of crops. It la gratifying that these trac
tor demonstrations are gradually drawing larger
and larger crowds, which means larger Interest,
and yet there is room for greater extension. It
will be better yet when such exhibitions become
still more popular over the state and at the
same time diversify their lines ot Instruction.
The real object, as the Fremont exhibition Sug
gests, lies muth deeper tbsn mere show.
It pays to remember that there are two aidea to
most questions, and good and honeat men on both

Slavs Present Their Case
By tha SoaeiaUa-Aaaorleaa rrm AaaeeleUosu
" The Oermana !iae- appealed to their American
fellow cltiiena to suspend their Judgment In the pres
ent crisis and give them fair play. It should be given
to them by every level headed, fair minded man. But
In their meeting In Chicago, and day by day In the
Qerman press, the name flav. Slavic rarely haa been
mentioned without ihe adjective barbaric 'Asiatic.'
or at least 'seml-Aslatlc' '
Is that fair play?
"In the rame of iiOO.ouo Slavs. (Bnhemlana. Poles,
Russiana, Slovaks, Slovenes, Croatiana end Serbs I,
living in Chicago, and 3.CflO.0 living In the t'nlui
States, we protest against thla abuse.
"We do rot want anything else than a square deal
and fair play. If tho Austrian-Hungarian government
had given fair play t all of ita cltltens and to Its
weaker neighbor, the world at the present hour
would be spared thla swful carnage that la going on
In our old homes. And we abhor the Idea that the
spirit of racial hatreo. and Intolerance that obaessea
the European peoples could be transferred Into this
land of liberty and equality, which we love and honor.
"We have a true respect for our German fellow
citizens and our sympathy la with all thoae who de
plore what has happened to mar the peace of Europe
and what still will happen. We highly respect their
manlfeetat'on of the love and affection for their fath
erland. But we. the American Sls.vs. before the
tribunal of all American people. Implore our German
fellow cltisena for two- ,faVors:
"First For Justice's sake, do not assert that the
Austrian and Hungarian Slavs have no reason for
discontentment, do not call them Ingrates against the
fatherly government, do not call them traitors sgalnst
the venerable emperor.
"We have thousands of instances to prove that II
la the Austrian government that Is ungrateful to ita
Slavic subjects, who bear the biggest bitrdenl and
have the least rights, that . Austrian government,
which peraecutes every national movement of Ita own
people, can te Justly called traitor against the welfare
of Ita own subjects. This present war has been
started against the will of nine-tenths ef Austria's
people. Vlnna juat forgot that there Is also soma
Austria beyond the Klngstrassa and started the con
flagration In which thousands of young lives will be
sacrificed and millions thrown Into misery.
"Yes, t.iere la a Panslavlstlo movement In Austria,
but who haa oroate.1 It? The nbeolute and German
ising Austrian oligarchy has built It up by driving tha
non-tit .mat, nations to tha wall. .The Austrian Slavs
have learned that, enly by united efforts they will
save themselves from the fata of the Prussian Poles,
who are being exterminated slowly but surely. The
same fate haa been prepared by the Austrian and
Hungarian government to thu millions ef Bohemians.
Moravians, Slovaks, Slovenes, Croatiana and Serbs.
The things have gone ao far that In aome places It is
considered a favor If the people are allowed to talk in
their mother tonguo 4n their own land!
. . "And ServlaT Please ' do' not call Servians un
grateful to Austria. The whole world knows, imd
Austria has never attempted to disprove It that It was
the Vienna diplomacy that has robbed the Servians of
the most fervently longed for fruit of their victory
over the Turks a seaport. And it was again the
Austrian diplomacy that has wrested from the little
kingdom ot Montenegro the city of Scutari that had
been taken by the Montenegrins with untold sacri
fices and sufferings and save same to the newly
created principality of the savage Albanians. Have
the Servians sny reason to be grateful to Austria?
"Second For history's sake do not call Slavs bar
barians or semlbarbarlana, Tou cannot do It without
hitting the history of human progress In the face.
"We do not sanction caarlsm. We hate It as much
as we deteat the absolutism of the Austrian emperor
and the militarism of the armaa kalsen Todey-we
look upon the csar ony as a rough, slovenly man, who
has seen another person maltreat a boy and makes
himself ready to whip the violator tof peace.
' "But to call the great Slavic race barbarlo! Shall
we line up before the eyea of the newspapermen and
orators who have made - this serious charge the
shadows of great Comenlus the Bohemian, who over
three hundred year ago started a reform of educa
tional system la Engl end and Germany and showed
.the- path that Is followed today by the greatest of

goer of Newton and the real founder of the modern
astronomical aystem? Or the Immortal Bohemian
martyr for liberty of conscience and predecessor ot

Europe, decades before the first German university
"Is It fair to call barbarians a race tbat haa given
to science such men as ,iomonosov, Mastorovich,
Nicola Teisa, Purkyr.e. Pavllk. Alea HrdUcka, the
anthropologist of tho Smithsonian Institute? And not
to forget that Prof. Metchnlkoff in Paris, the
great bacteriologist, la a Russian and Mme. Currier
SRIbdowaka, the Inventrix of radium, is a Polish lady.
"In literature the Slavs have given to tha world
Dostojewsky, Turgeateff Pushkin. Toiatoy, Tohek

only a few of those whoee works have been trans

both are Bohemians. '

of a free world.

"Mere man," the expression sounds
hammered down by the man-demollshlng
blows of present-day feminism. "Man."
that used to be enough,' when men were
real men and women were real women.
The psychology back of "mere man"
unconsciously reveals the weak, waver
ing" and unvlrlle attitude some fmlnlatt-
cally recast men take toward grave Is
sues of social existence today.
Mrs. Oilman s a-sexuel chairmanship
of the suffrage association bears fruit.
As If "man" were not sufficient! When
women feel ashamed to be women, men
may also feel it a weaknesa to be men.
They aign up "mere man."
A "mere man" watching "with glee
the travel of the suffragists and anti
suffragists," Is hardly liable to be "an

problems constitutes the difference be
tween "mere man" and a real man. who
takes manly and womanly Isaues seri
ously; serious they are. '
"The mere man" seeks refuge In dic

Oramercy, the method itaed to be famous

The historical advance on the now ta
