The Gun Behind the Treaty.
The basic thought In Colonel Roosevelt's re
rent discussion of the European wsr and the
Monroe doctrine ag explaining our abstention
from the conflict Is that treaties are good only
so far a there are runs behind them to enforce
them. Since Washington our steadfast policy
baa bren to avoid entangling foreign alliance.
nd no European country linn any right to call
on u to help fight Its battles. We have new
object lessons, however, as to what trestle
amount to when there is a disposition to evade
them or violate them, for Relgiutn la fighting to
maintain its neutrality rights guaranteed by
treaty. Italy Is being summoned to fulfill the
obligations of Its alliance, and all the other In
volved countries, except Austria and fcervia,
have been drawn into the affair primarily by
reason of treaty pledges. In other words, the
thing that makes treaties hold, or fail to hold,
Is the guns behind them, for If the Issue Is griev
ous enough for a country to war for It, a treaty
which could be violated ' practically with Im
punity would hardly hold It bac k. The conclu
sion' Is that an enduring world peace pact must
have forces of world power behind It. Co
operative disarmament, with a common body of
peace maintains, approaches closer to the
ideal, an Ideal, we regret, apparently still ex

His Question of Privilege.
Congressman Moon of Tennessee rose to a
question of privilege the other day he had a
newspaper editorial that called for correction.
It was from a Washington paper and related to
the work of a committee of which he ws a lead
ing member. Said Congressman Moon as
scores of congressmen before him have ssld:
I liava not tha pleasure of the acqoalntsncc of
tha very able and usually accurate editor of the Her
ald, tfit I have read thla paper with a good deal of
Interest and I have usually found It fair and accurate.
But thla article woul 1 seem to be inspired.
The Honorable Mr. Moon simply reflects the
shadow of a current habit. So long as a man's
newspaper accords with his Ideas in its utter
ances he regards it as "fair and accurate," but
with many people the moment the paper takes
the other end of the argument it is either In
spired or otherwise led astray. Strange that
Mr. Moon, having such faith in the usual fair
ness and accuracy of his favorite Washington
paper, should, the monlent it digresses from his
way of thinking, consider It grossly unfair and
Indifferent and subservient to questionable Influences.
Public Document Distribution.
Commenting on the report of the Interstate
Commerce commission in what is known as the
"5 per cent rate Increase case," the Outlook ex
presses the wish that Important public docu
ments might be obtained easily by any citizen
on his application at his local postofflce. The
Idea here is that the people should be advised
through the postofflce of the various public
documents Issued as they conic from the press,
and be given free access to them upon applica
tion, an Idea which strikes us as eminently prac
tical and commendable.
Government publications are notoriously
misfits because of defective distribution. Many
valuable reports and treatises are Issued, but
lose their force by falling to get promptly Into
the hands of people who could and would utilize
them and with a tremendous resultant waste of
effort and money. Distribution on application
through the postofflce would stop this waste la
large measure, and concomitantly expedite de
livery to the desired destination. This system,
moreover, would soon develop the relative pop
ular Interest In, or Indifference to, the numer
ous varieties of government work culminating
in Huch publications, and perhaps let us know
that much of It uiI.kps the mark, and much
fciore of it Is not wanted at all. j
Teiti of True Greatness.
Kcceutrk'lty seldom makes mau great,
though great men are often eccentric. That
their greatness does not inhere in their eccen
tricity may be clear when the latter Is borrowed
or Imitated by another, who fai's to see that his
idol is great, not because, but despite this pecu
liarity. "The vulgar thus through Imitation
err; as often the learned by being singular."
The vulgar, in other words, has been led astray
simply by finding his affinity of weakness in
an otherwise great diameter.
"He is great," said Emerson, "who Is what
be Is from nature, and who never reminds us of
others." The mimic, therefore, can never hope
to borrow enough of great men's queer ways to
make him great. He may let the lives or great
men continue to remind hhn that he may, if he
goes about It in the right way, uiuke his own
life sublime, but that is never done by any ays
tern of substitution. Perhaps the common run
of humanity should find satisfaction in the fact
that the great as well as the small have their
weaknesses, but they should avoid. In a laud
able emulation of the great, confusing the ele
ments of strength and weakness.
The lesson might be applied to society as
a whole, which reflects the characteristic of the
individuals. The thing we boast most of today Is
our advanced state of civilization. I.Ike an un
rivaled paragon she stands the beacon of truth,
equity, reason. But with all her peerless cli
maxes of genius and achievement, she has her
eccentricities. And today the chlefest of all
these is beiug mistaken as one of her greatest
elements of strength. Some natlona are deceiv
ing themselves by believing that their greatness
lies in their armaments and their power of de
struction; that war Is the sign aud seal or the
supremacy of the state, but we believe hlatory
v 111 show. If the present does not, that a graver
mistake never vm made; that war Is a vice, not
a virtue or our civilization.
Natlona, like men and boys, go to righting
only when they lose control of their better pow
ers. It Is a last resort. If they sr strong
enough to reason out their differences they
would have no occasion for fighting them out.
Gibraltar appears majestic In its power, not be
cause it has got the better of the sea in a
rough-and-tumble fight to see which shall have
the right-of-way, but because she tttands there
peacefully, but Invincibly, resisting the en
croachments or the mighty waters. One test
of American greatness is at stake in its ability
to avoid being drawn Id the whirlpool of war.

WHEATLAND. Wyo., Aug. 22 To the
F.dltor of The Bee: A plain man s view
of the Kuropran muddle is eoniethlntx like
this: Imnfrln a bank cannier, ambitious
for social or political uccr, living be
yond his Means. He appropriates the
money of his depoaltom, plunges r''k
lesaly In the maelstrom of speculation,
only at laat to find htmeelf financially
undone and probably landed behind
prison bars. Suppose the stockholders
and depositors are aware of his actions;
suppose, furthermore (to btlng home the
absurdity of It), thoy should be possessed
of the strange notion that the honor, tha
prosperity and even the existence of the
bank require them to come to the rescue
of the cashier with more capital and
more deposits. It does not require a
prophet to foresee the evetit'ial bank
ruptcy of everybody concerned.
Now, the "head devils," aa the Inde
pendent of New York calls them, of the
European powers have done precisely
that very thing. In their Insane, ambi
tious desire for world supremacy they
have squandered the people'a money tin
wnr material. They have mode secret
agreements and pledged the lives end
property of their countrymen agreements
to which the people who do the fighting
and pay th bills never consented. When
the crash came, the masses, subtly
played on by appeals to patriotism and
racial hatred, rush to the tesciie ot the
gamblers masquerading- ae statesmen re
sponsible for this calamity. If the no
bility of Europe and all other cliisse
who reap tha profits of Imperialism and
militarism were lined up on the battle
field before, the deadly engines of de
struction the war would collapse In a
few days. It may be that this deeolat

OMAHA, Aug. 23. To the Editor of
The Bee: A volume of the federal census.
Issued In July, 1914, contains all the occu
pational data, and Is another confirmation
of the marked lowering In the statue of
women where they are given the ballot.
Taka Colorado and Wyoming, where
women have voted for twenty-one and
forty-four years, and contrast them with
Nebraska and Nevada, states of equal
density of populution, where women do
not vote and here Is what we find:
"Not only are there more women In
proportion to men employed in tha suf
frage slates, hut more women over 4."
years have to earn their own living. Alro.
theie are mora women working at the
least remunerative kinds of labor, where
women vote. There are nearly three
times the number of women working as
laborers on farms In Colorado and Wyom
ing than are blmllarly employed In Ne
braska and Nevada, whereas thfe are
over eight times as many Independent
women farmers in the two male suffrage
states. Likewise, there are (W per cent
more families without separate dwellings
In Colorado and Wyoming, than In Ne
btaska and Nevada, and the proportion
of , women employed as barbers, wait
resses, etc.. Is greater where suffrage
prevails while those employed as musi
cians, tt-achera and sales woman are more
iiumeious where women do not vote."
Another comparison Is In marriage and
divorce. "With 33 per cent fewer married
women than Nebraska, Colorado has 35
per cent more women divorced, while even
mule suffrage Nevada, with Heno the
talk of the world, has M per cent fewer
divorced women than Wyoming, after two
generations of woman suftage."

but she would answer aa of otd: Ood reigns. Clouds
and darkness are round about Him: righteousness
and Judgment are the habitation of Hla throne.
God haa not failed. Some professed Christian men
have failed, In part. Every great and good Idea
that haa taken hold of the human heart haa been
subject to rude shock and terrible tests and re
peated partial failures. Christianity, In a certain'
sense. Is no exception. Christianity is not dead In
the rnldst of this war, though It Is wounded In
the house of Its friends. All these nations, with
their rulers, are professionally Christian. But even
the best of Christiana may make terrible mistakes
and fall tar short f their own Ideals, To set the
"glory of the Fatherland" above the peace of the
world on such specious pretexts as the professedly
Christians rulers of Europe have done Is one of
these dreadful mistakes tt Is Juet unholy war and
death and hell. "These peoples and rulers are
blinded by selfishness .and greed, by false race
prejudices and hatreds, by insane militarism. These
are the gods of this world and they stilt have
power over Christian nations. These nations learned
none of these evil things from Jesus Christ."
No excuse is made for the folly of these "war
lords." In shame they will learn that to seek t
Justify themselves, befvre the court of the world's
Judgment, for their course In plunging Into this
world war on such flimsy pretexts, will be quito
another thing from their accustomed pompous atti
tudinising for posterity. And yet. It has ever been
true that multitudes of men have preferred a de
natured Christianity to the real thing. If they have
made any choice at all.
Just here this caveat, , voiced In tha New Tot It
Tribune, is In point. "It would Imply a very shallow
Judgment l- assert that Christianity has had no
Influence, even In the case of war. Who shall say
that a majority of civilized men. and woman In the
world today are not opposed to war? .The have
no way of expressing themselves; they do not sit
In the seats of the mighty. But they are quietly
registering their Judgment agaiust war aa a crime
against humanity. And some day, whaa there shall
be ushered In the era of 'sweet manners, purer lawa'
foretold by the paet. the verdict of these plain
peoplo will be respected and obeyed by thoe who
will then rule the destinies of the world."
No, no, Christianity has not collapsed. Human
expedients for peace have colls peed, and ever must
collupse. Whre does the New Testament teach
that the wsy to secure and preserve, peace Is to
build up big armies and big navies, and to brandish
(the "mailed fist?" Where does the New Testament
teach that, If nations will agree to triple (or double
or quadruple, or any other kind of) "alllasce" or
"ententes." there will, be permanent peace? Where
does the Now Testament teach that the way to
preserve peace is to Wng about International mar
lie gee between members of "royalty?" Where dues
the New Testament teach that tha way to pro
serve peace is to exclude big national monetary
"loans" by the Morgans, the Rothschilds, et al?
These, and all similar "methods," are but human
expedients. They may hold Mars in check for a
time, lu(- when the occasion arlsei a mere pistol
t.not tt mey be they are as useless aa defenses
against war as a wooden fleet before a fleet of super
dreadnauglitc. For nations to trust In these ex
pedients is but to foUow a mooklng wiU-s'-the-w!sp.
vhlch lures them on to what they would fain avoid.
It Is to lean on a "broken reed" that pierces the
hand that so pathetically truats upon It.
Are we. then, to banish Tha Hague, tear up all
peace treaties, and hold no more peace conferences
By no means. Wa are simply to evaluate these
things at their tme worth. We are not to allow
ourselves to be decleved by falsa bopaa based on
human expedients. Wa are to do everything, of
course, to irevent war and to increase peace senti
ment In the earth. But we are ever to remember
that human expedients are but human expedients:
they may be temporary preventatives, but they
are not cures.
We have had enough of the will-worshiping
"super-man" and "super-woman;" enough of the
fganlng worship ut the Mammon god; enough of
cultured immorality In literature; raough of the
"bread-alone" theory of civilization: enough ef the
housetop shoutings of the devotees of an economic
Christ; enough of the brute Ideas of sex and loe
and home; enough o devil-bom militarism: enjuglr

There la no need, thetefoie, to don sackcloth
on account of a 'Tollapaing Modern Culture."
Neither is there need to go tiptoelug about lest the
heavena of Christianity coUapee. There will be the
booming of the surges of evil against the dykes ot
Christianity until tho end of thla present order of
things, but those dykes will hold.

Tha Kind That Wlna,
In fair competition lies tins trno
port of good business. There Is no
calling, no profession, or occupation,
equal to it for absorbing Interest and
endless succession ' of exciting inci
dent. But tt ahould be .hat kind of
a healthy competition and friendly
rivalry that does not strain neigh
borly relations. On the contrary, it
should tend to bring those men to
gether who are engaged In a similar
business for the purposo of free dis
cussion and publicity of opinion.
Unfortunately, this does not often
occur. Men engaged In a Ilk busi
ness sometimes get too friendly, com
bine their interests, and form a com
bination, contrary to the laws of tho
Others enter Into a bitter personal
conflict with each other, endeavoring;
with mltr'.-.t and rialn to throw Ignom
iny upon and disrespect for ths house
of their competitors and their goods.
The Intensity of tao competitlva
struggle is subject to a great deal of
variation. At times It may be char
acterized as cut-throat, where ths
slashing; of prices has for Us object
the elimination of on or more of
the contestants. Uacli competitor Is
confronted by the ever-present threat
that If his service Is poor, or the
quality of his goods Is not up to the
standard, some other house of busi
ness will outstrip him. But the house
that considers service, high quality
t:id no more than a fair profit aa the
paramount factors In business, is the
on that In the long run is sure to win.
