Labor day will this year be observed among
us under unusual conditions, for only In the
United State la any great body of organized
wage earners peacefully engaged In industrial
occupations without serious Internal disturb
ances. In the warring-countries of Europe labor
In the ordinary occupations has practically
ceased and the laborer has become Part of the
military machine. In this country, while rum
blings of Industrial warfare are still heard from
Colorado, and martial law continues in certain
mining districts of Montana, as a whole the
labor world is at peace, although the danger
spots thst recently threatened .trouble In the
railway brotherhoods have not all been safely
American labor is to be congratulated on the
fact that its great national and International
organisations, and their official heads, are com
mitted to the peaceful arbitrament of disputes
between employer and employe in preference to
resort to the strike, and tbst the rank and file
are in more thorough agreement than ever with
their leaders on this point. Industrial warfsre
is lees costly and disastrous only in degree than
war between nations, and the movement for In
dustrial peace Is second only In Importance to
the movement for world peace. The keynote of
Labor day to reflect the progress of organized
labor must therefore be peace and progress, be
cause labor's progress Is best promoted through
No Peace Unlets All Agree.
The solemn compsct between England,
France and Russia pledging fhelr mutual faith
that no terms of peace to end the war will be
accepted by any one of them unless agreed to
by all of them, Is not a good omen, The action
of the allies In making such a compact will
simply force exchange of similar pledges, secret
or avowed, between Germany and Austria, and
possibly Turkey, if the latter Joins forces with
the Germans. The formulation of a peace treaty
that must be negotiated to all Intents and pur
poses by unanimous consent will be hard to
handle whether 'the outcome of the conflict be
decisive defeat for one side or the other or gen
eral exhaustion compels settlement by mutual
concessions. If the peace adjustment devolves
upon a neutral mediating power, or powers, the
task will be more delicate and difficult than It
would be If terms generally acceptable could be
forced upon a single recalcitrant.
The Human Innovation.
To those still bewildered by the abrupt an
nouncement that President Wilson would be a
csndldate for re-election In 1016, we would sug
gest, think again who made the announcement.
It was Vice President Marshall. Does not that
help to soften the blowT
It waa surprising, Indeed, It was like the
proverbial clap of thunder from -a clear sky
although the sky of public affairs is anything
than clear at present. No one was expecting
such an announcement; there was nothing to
provoke It, and besides, when in the history of
our politics had the president's political plana
ever been heralded to the public through the
medium of the vice president
But we say, remembering that the bomb waa
fired by Mr. Marshall does not that explain it
all 7 For as vice president Mr. Marshall has
been a genuine human innovation. He does
nothing like other vice presidents, who have
been content to wear the title and draw the
salary. Like Hannibal of old, he Is always doing
the very thing the other fellow least expects.
So In setting up this new precedent, at such an
unusual time, he Is simply carrying out the part
he has played since taking the office.
Yet, more seriously, Mr. Marshall nor any
other man Is making announcements ot Wood
rod Wilson's plans without the latter'a knowl
edge. So what have we to conclude but that
the president had this little surprlso sprung as
advance notice to all ambitious democrats to
keep off the grass?
Fate of Austria,
The opinion la expressed that, come what
may, the end of the war will see the break-up ot
the Austro-Hungarlan empire aa now consti
tuted. Already Russia claims to have laid per
manent hands upon a small portion of the dual
monarchy's territory, though It may be too early
for settled accounts. Bervla la. reported to have
construed Austria's failure ot invasion and at-'
tack to Inherent weakness and prospective dis
solution, pointing to the fact that the war waa
begun with Austria's declaration against Bervla.
While that la true, Serbia's conclusions may
not logically follow. While Austria did not pro
ceed to attack Servla, and today Is said to have
not a single soldier on Servian soli. It Immedi
ately turned to Russia, with whom it la now
engaged In a death grapple. Xnd tn the end It
amounta to the same thing. If we take Austria
at its original word that lta provocation was the
Slav. Russia and Servla are one In race and
Russia aa the greater Slavic nation stepped In
to defend Servla and naturally drew the Aus
trian fire its way.
Yet there Is strong ground for believing that
never again, regardless of the war's ending, will
the Austro-Hungarlan power be what It once
was; Indeed, at this very moment it is playing
the part, more or less, of auxiliary to the Ger
mans. But when It comes to partitioning the
dual monarchy, It Is worth remembering that
more than halt the population belong to non
Germanic races and one of the points ot specu
lation In this war Is whether race or nationality
forms the stronger bond.
Ex-Candidate Berge does not take back a
word he said about the flagrant extravagance
and waste of our state government, but he sud
denly discovers that all the blame belongs on
republicans Instead ot democrats. Oh. Mr.
Berge. H'a lucky your ambition to be governor
of the great state ot Nebraska haa been disap
pointed, for you are not big enough tor the Job.
If war is ever Justifiable It Is when the
world says of It, "There was no other way
around." But what shall be said of a war the
provocation of which every participating na
tion Is busy with efforts to excuse and explain?
Americans are waiting wltn baited breath
to see whether the next big battle Is to be fought
between New York and Philadelphia or between

Dirigibles in Warfare
Jerome O. Xtansaker la fonnal of rraaklla Institute.
France developed the flrat practical dirigible", l.ut
haa until recently concentrated Ita energy chiefly
upon aeroplane, with the result that at the present
time the French army Is estimated to have between
6) and 1AW aeroplanes In eervlce. There aeropUn
are. moreover, of types thst represent the highest
development In aeroplane design. On the other hand,
Germany, realizing the menses rf thla serial force,
snd the Impoaslhility of duplicating It. has recognlxed
the pnaalbllltirs of the dirigible end given liberal sup
port to the development of the shirs of Count Zeppell i
snd Major von Parseval. Great sums hsve been Vpent
snd many lives hsve been loat. but the reward lias
already come. The German army now noeeeasee a
splendid fleet of twenty-flve slrrhlpa. representing
the highest development tn airship deelgn. At tha
same time France haa brought Its fleet of alrehlp
up t eighteen, and Germany has some 0O milltsiv
seroplsnes with a large civilian reeerve. It has he
come a race for the supremacy of the sir between
two grest powers whose capitals I'e within the radius
of action of aircraft from each other.
England haa recently Joined the race for supremacy,
and, apparently realizing that It is too late to over
take Its continental rivals by the mere multiplying
of units, has directed every effort toward the de
velopment of air craft superior In deaign to ths exist
ing types. Foreign machines havs been purchased
liberally, and an aaro-dynamle laboratory and an ex
perimental aircraft factory have been built.
The dirigible operating In clesr weather at sn alti
tude of some 5,000 feet Is fairly ssfe from gun fire
and yet not two high for a trained observer to detect
the movements of large forces on the ground, genersl
features of fortifications, number sad type of ships
In a harbor, presence or absence of bridges and rail
road tracks. Ths dirigible can stop Its motors and
float slowly above ground It Is d ex I red to observe.
The aeroplane cannot perform such service except
by circling sbovs a given area, thua reducing Its fuel
aupply and future usefulness. A dirigible, unlike an
seroplane. It fitted with wireless telegraph for both
sending and receiving mesaages, and may keep in
constant communication with its baee. Tha radius
of action in a calm ot large, rigid alrahlps may be 2,tOD
miles, and medlum-alied non-rigid ships 1.000 miles.
An seroplane cannot be depended on for more than
400 miles when an observer must be csrrled in addition
to the passenger. A dirigible can savs fuel by drift
ing with tha wind, and It Is well known that by se
lecting a suitable elevation a favorable wind can very
often be found when the wind on the ground Is contrary-
The greatest usefulness of ths dirigible will
bo at night At ths present time aeroplanes cannot
be flown at night Tha dirigible at night can travel
close to the ground without danger from gun firs
and can observe ths extent and disposition of Camps.
For purs rsoonnaissanco work . an army could use
largo rigid dirigibles for distant scouting to develop
the enemy's principal movement preceding the actunl
meeting. Due to their portability, any expeditions
Into ths Interior of an enemy's country or In ths col
onies would be beat served by nonrlgld dirigibles.
Aeroplanes would' be used for transportation of staff
officers, dispatch duty and scouting within ths limits
of ths battlefield. The asms functions at night would
be performed by the nonrlgld dirigible.
In caaa of siege, where tha enemy has possession
of a groat expanse of surrounding country, communi
cation with tha besieged forces could be had by
means of a dirigible of sufficient radius of action.
Its going and coming would bo masksd by darkness.
. The uss of dirigibles in modern wsrs will bo
greatly restricted by tha enemy's aeroplanes, which
must be supposed superior both In speed snd climbing
powor. On ths other hand, a dirigible will mount
several machine guns and, having a steady gun pi it
form, can deliver a much better directed fire than
ths aeroplane. In ths case of modern armies, where
aeroplanes may be supposed numerous and thslr pilots
ready to take risks, tha operations of dirigibles will bo
no doubt, chiefly conducted under cover of darkness
or In strateglo reconnaissance far removed from the
field of battle. A large dirigible can carry over half
a ton of bombs or torpedoes. The effect of bomlu
dropped-from eoft In no way compares with that of
shells from great guns on account of lack of penetra
tion before explosion. Ths best thst can be expected
Is a 'surface explosion and Incendiary effect The
moral offset of dropping bombs nto an enemy's camp
at night roust not be Ignored.
The large rigid type dirigible may be of eervlca
a navy whose probable adversaries have dockyards
snd naval bases within the radl'.ia of action ot such
airships. In general It may bs considered thst the
offensive power of alrahlps would have little effect
upon "armored decked battleships. Bombs and tor
pedoes will burst on the surfaoa of such docks, turret
roofs, etc., and do local damage, but probably will
not injure any vital parts. A ship Is a small target
to hit from the altitude of 1,000 feet, which la required
by day to be safe from gun firs. At night aa airship
may pass low ever a ship, but tn war time Wo man-
of-war will show lights, and, unlssa tha moon be
bright the dirigible has small chance of finding the
ahlp. It seems that tha principal function of ths
dirigible In naval warfare la to supplement the work
of scout cruisers, and that Its offensive powers would
rarely be called upon. In attempting to pasa through
watsra tn which mines have been laid a dirigible
could possibly conduct counter mining operations. A
dirigible can also give warning Of ths presence of
submarines, and, if required, could rid a passags of
these dangerous craft by launching bombs upon or
near them. For this duty the dirigible may pass at
a very low altitude, as It has little to fear from a
submarine boat unless the latter bs running on the
aurfacs. Dirigibles wilt not revolutionise naval war
fare, but may play an Important, If auxiliary, part

TORK. Neb., Pept .-lo the Editor of

ious attacks on England and France do
not disconcert me in the least. Certainly
no fairmlnded American believes all ths

American foolish as he may be Is going
to accept Berlin reports aa the unadul

a lie on all others.

treaeheroua, greedy, thieving, horribly

Futility of Arbitration.
OMAHA, Sept. . To tha Editor of The
Bee: We are hearing on all sides these
dsys ths condemnation of the European
nations for piling up armaments to butcher
one another with.' That they must ons
and all accept a share ot the responsi
bility la true though whether, under ex
isting conditions, they are so very much
to blame Is questionable.
' Big armies and navies don't ensure
peace: that has been amply proved by
recent svents. But though they may not
ensure peace, a big enough and strong
enough army or navy make a nation's
security more certain. Britain's navy
has not kept her out of the war, but, be
ing tn the war, It has kept her shores
free from foreign Invasion and protected
her trade upon the high seas. Nons of
the grumblers, who. In ths past, opposed
the Increases In the naval estimates
would dare ahow their faoes before the
public todsy. Tha. European nations,
having no faith In international peace be
ing established, have set about to pro
vide, it not peace, at least reasonable
security by the formation of strong forces
te protect themselves; with what success
the present war will show.
As long ss humsn nature Is what it is
It would seem that an arbitration court
cannot secure to this world an sverlsst
Ing peace. No matter how perfect In
