The European Balance of Power.
If the first seven weeks of the greet Euro
pean wsr hsve demonstrated anything. It Is that
at thla stage of the proceedings the opposing
land forces are not so unevenjy matched as the
uninformed have been led to believe. The Ger
man military machine has Indeed proved a mili
tary marvel. Its mobilization having beon ac
complished with speed and precision believed
by experts to be Impossible on a scale so large.
Obviously the reason for the lack of German
preponderance has not been due to failure of
the Oermsns to conform to their pretentious
plans and specifications, but the surpassing by
the allies of the rating with which they were
It has turned out that the French, the Ger
mans and the Belgians were much better pre
psrrd to tske the field end put up a defense
than they were suposed to be, and also that
the Russlsns either secured an earlier start or
worked much faster than any one Imagined they
could. As a consequence the various action
and engagements have been stubborn rather
than decisive a give-and-take tug of war with
alternating advantage on one side or the other
without overwhelming onslaught. As one mili
tary expert puts It, no French army has been
destroyed at a new Redan nor bottled up In a
fortress like- Motz, nor have the allies scored,
any dsxzllng victory to be blazoned down the
pages of history. The succeeding stages of the
terrible conflict may develop a perpondcrating
weight of arms. It must do so If the war lasts
long enough, and the combatants do not stop of
sheer exhaustion. But Europe's balance of
power which we were wont to refer to as a
theoretical computation, Is by this test disclosed
to be a much more accurate balance than ap
peared on the surface.
A Sensible Jail Report.
The report of the advisory committee, rep
resenting six different civic organization, on
the condition of the city jail, and the best solu
tion of tho Jail problem, Is one of the most
sensible documents of the kind we have seen.
Although it calls the jail "a disgrace to the
Community," the disgrace consists chiefly of In
excusable dirt and filth In the men'a cellhouse
and those parts of the jail used for adminis
trative purposes, the women's department being
commended as exceptionally well kept. The
committee finds, however, that the dirt can be
removed without tearing down the building or
voting bonds to erect a new structure, for the
blame for he dirt rests with those who are paid
to keep the place .clean.
The committee has also discovered that while
the cellhouce is overcrowded, the cellhouse
erected to serve aa a county jail during the
construction of our new court house, and sub
sequently turned back to the city, has amplo
facilities which have remained idle because of
alleged inconvenience in getting prisoners up
and down the stairs In the absence of an ele
vator. In view of the possibilities of consolida
tion and the Inchoate movement tor a work
house, tlie report disapproves the new Jail
cheme and suggests instead a clean-up of the
Jail, and the installation of an elevator in con
nection with the use of the larger cellhouse.
Even here, the Investment of the money in
the proposed elevator may be warranted, but
the committee overlooked the' fart that thla part
of the Jail was used Just as it is for several
years to house prisoners without over-working
The glet of the report, however, confirms the
attitude of The Bee, namely, that a workhouse
should have first call on any funds which may
be available, and until then the present Jail
be made to serve the purpose as best it can
without expending any more money on it than
The Short Ballot Task.
"The short ballot is national, and it is defin
itely rcegnzed as genuinely progressive. Too
many candidate , It is understood, means too
little intelligent voting and too little popular
government." With this declaration as iti"
etartlng point, the Chlcsgo Tribune calls at
tention to the necessity for champions of t:
Initiative and referendum to start a parallel
movement for the drastic shortening of the so
called "Uttle ballot." As extreme examples of
the lengths to which direct legislation measures
may draw out the ballot, we are reminded that
California will vote on forty-eight propositions
at the coming election, while Oregon will vote
on about forty measures. In both states some
of the pending changes being of fundamental
Importance, , amending the constitution in Its
most vital parts. Commenting on thla compli
cation the Tribune declares:
Experience haa ahown that the voter, when tn
doubt, turna proroaala down wholesale on general
principles. Beeldea, each croup calla for funda, lit
erature, and favora. In tha resulting confusion and
conflict many mtrltorloua measurea tall to arouae
Interest or attentlcn. Who wants to vote on forty
proposals at one time? Who haa tha time and pa
tience to study the proa and cons of so many re
forme? The short leferendum ballot la as neces
sary to eood rovernment and popular control as the
short personal rallnt.
Fortunately, Nebraska has not yet run riot
with Initiative and referendum measures, so
thst our shor' ballot movement may take up
only one thing at a time, the most pressing de
mand being for a reduction In the number of
elective offices. When this is accomplished, we
will he In better trim to tackle and solve the
remainder of the short ballot task.
The emperor of Austria says the war costs
him much pain. It does not cost him a fraction
of the pain and -sorrow and distress war hoaps
upon the common people. Not those who have
the making of war carry its greatest burdens.
Kings make wsr, aristocracy commands in th?
war. the common people do the fighting and foot
It was a famous battle the bombardment
and srosshing of the congressional pork. When
the smoke cf the conflict lifted it was found
that the hecrtless enemy hsd spiked the econ
omy plank to the Baltimore platform so that
routed patriots could read It from hospital
Warring nations are trying to prove who
threw the first brick by putting out "white
books; "blue books." and "yellow books." For
the present, however, all are blind to the
streams of human blood with which the history
of the war is being written from day to day.
The Hungarian Viewpoint
The Hunxartan American Federation, which la a
national oraanliatlon. maintained by Americana of
Hungarian birth or dearent, "for the cultural and
ethical uplift of the Immlerante from Hunaary and
for rallng their etandard of life." haa Issued a state
ment on the present war and the connection between
Austria and Hungary.
"We most respectfully, but also moat emphatic
ally, call attention to the uniform aln of all American
newspapers In constantly mentioning 'Austria,' 'Aus
trian army,' 'Austrian troops.' only. Inasmuch aa the
ar Is wss-Pd by Austria-Hunsary, and the Austro
Hungarlan army, Austro-Hunararlan troops are In the
field, this rontlnuoua and consequent omlsstcn of
Hungary' and 'Hungarian' can hardly be excused.
Americana of Hungarian birth or descent have en
deavored for many yeara to educate American public
opinion about -the relatione between Hungary and
Austria, showing that they are from two Independent
countries, with constitutions, parllamenta, cltlienshlp
and sovereignly of their own. connected by a pecul'ar
system of dualism by which the army and foreign
representation form common and Joint Institutions.
We are well aware that thla condition of affalra la
mostly due to the fact that' the worde 'Austria' and
'Austrian' are handler for telegrams and headlines,
but we also feel that the Just claims of a nation for
recoKnltlon aa such ought not to be disregarded ror
the rake of convenience and brevity.
"We are not begrudging the Servlana the eympa
thlea showered upon them. If there still he any
In the country who do not admit that the assassina
tion of Francis Ferdinand waa planned and abetted
by stato and military officials of Servla, It would be
In vain to try to make' them ae these mattere In their
true Jlght. Dut we want to correct the erroneous view
aa If war had 'been declared upon Servla for the pur
pose of avenging the death of the heir apparent. War
waa declared because 8ervla s Intrigues and agltatlona
threatened the Inner peace and the territorial Integrity
of the monarchy, and especially of Hungary. A dis
memberment of Hungary waa the avawed goal of tho
Ijan-Servlan propaganda, and no country can tolerate
a propaganda at her borders that cuts directly Into
her flesh and body. What would the I'nlted Btatea do
If It were disclosed that an agitation Is carried on In
Canada to have the northwestern part of thla country
annexed, on the grounds that hundreds of thousands
of Canadiana settled In those parts? We can aafely
leave the answer to thla question to every good Amer
ican. Now, the propaganda Bervla has been conduct
ing was exactly of this very character.
"All thla explains why the Hungarian nation was
most persistent in demanding prompt measures against
Servla, and why tha Hungarians went ao enthusias
tically into the war. The Hungarians foel that they
are conducting a war of self-defense; that they are
defending the territorial Integrity and very exlatence
of their country against destruction and disintegra
tion. This Is why all political dissenstona were for
gotten the moment It became clear auch a fight could
not be avoided. The questions of universal suffrage, of
a true parllsmentarisnlsm, of a new deal with Auatrla,
that would better safeguard the economic Interests of
Hungary, etc., that agitated the mtnda of the Hun
gartana, had naturally to be relegated to the back
ground when the queatlon became 'to be or not to be,'
The Hungarian nation hopes the war will end well.
"We would like to call attention, In view of the
attitude of the Serviana of thla country who were born
In Hungary, to the fact that not even the famous
Servian press bureau In New York dared claim any
historical righta for Servla on the parts of Hungary
and Croatia, which have more or less of Servian popu
lation. The ancestors of most of these Servians
Immigrated to Hungary and became settlers and
citizens of that country. The present Servian popula
tion of Hungary la, therefore, exactly In the same
situation aa, for Instance, the deacendants of the old
Oerman aettlera of Pennsylvania. We wonder what
thla nation would have to aay if the deacendants of
Immigrants would enter a conspiracy with the native
land of their ancestors against the country that was
voluntarily chosen by jhe ancestors as their new home,
and to which they owe allegiance?
, "We want Americana not to take too aertaualy the
charges of oppression, hurled against Hungary by
Slavic natives of that country and used aa a subter
fuge for their public demonstrations for Servla anil
Russia. These demonatrat'ons and the open declara
tions and manifestoes of Russia alnce the war atarted
clearly show how far the PanrSlavIc propaganda has
gone. They also indicate that what the Slavio leaders
like to call oppression la only the defense against tho
Pen-Slavic, agltatlona that threaten Hungary's exlat
ence. In trying to atem the tide of Pan-Slavism, Hun
gary Is fighting not only for herself but for weatern
civilisation against the Tartars and the Moslem. We
feel quite convinced that the American nation would
get a different understanding of the European war If
they would, at least., recognise that the war waa pro
voked and made unavoidable by Pan-Slavism and

Peace Throssk Prayers.
OMAHA, Sept. 2. To the Editor of The
Pee: I am confident in the opinion that
Prealdent Wilson's proclamation of
prayer embodies neither divine nor
human wisdom, but only a faith repel
lent to both. Why approach divine Intel
ligence In an attitude of conjecture,
seeking by supernatural Intervention an
arbitrary peace Impossible to maintain
through human power under the condi
tions obtaining In Europe? For cen
turies the peace of Europe haa been an
enforced tranquility of the masses
through a superstitious, servile subser
viency to the brutal might of those who
wear the single and triple crowns In
usurpation of both divine and human
rights, and aa an Inevitable and Ingfral
sequence we today behold the most titanic
upheaval of mankind.
To petition Almighty God to re-establish
a peace of aubjugatlon and oppression Is
only to seek to Incorporate divine Influ
ence In the hellish conspiracy of en
trenched power against European hu
manity. It is, therefore, unthinkable that thla
nation will on October 4 supplicate the
great God for such a peace. Is anyone
so bold In opinion ns to contend that'
any other peace Is possible to. deity than
a peace that carries with it divine wis
dom, Justice" and mercy? Let the na

OMAHA. Sept. 22.-To the Editor of The
Bee: To the article by Mra. Crumparker
In regard to woman's failure to vote, per
mit me to reply, that the right to vote
ahould be denied women because all hav
ing that right did not avail themselves
of the privilege, ls no argument against
equal rights. It is Just about aa vain an
argument as to maintain that no children
ahould be sent to school beyond the sec
ond grade because over E3 per cent of all
school children in Philadelphia, for In
stance, elect to leave school at that time.
Tha faithful band of women In Ne
braaka who do realise their duty, and the
women In Omaha who have marched
down alleys Into barns, barber ahopa, pool
halls and rooms unfit for human beings
to cast their vote, are entitled to a vote
the same as the loyal and patriotic men
who traveled the same road to cast their
vote. One would not presume to deprive
the thousanda of male voters of their
right to vote simply because they eld
not avail themselvea of their privilege
snd do their duty. It Is not a question
of doing or having did one's duty; it Is a
question of right and wrong.
In a democratic government of the peo
ple, for the people, by the people, the
people should have an equal right
Whether they do their uty or rot is not
the question. And those who do not care
for the vote should not be permitted to
debar any one, male or femald, who
claims that right and desires tho privilege
of assisting In the building and manage
ment of home affairs of the community
which they support, and by whose laws
they must abide.. May the voters of Ne

Lincoln and Suffrage.
OMAHA, Kept. 21. To the Editor of
The Bee: Mr. F. A. Agnew's dubiety In
regard to Abraham Lincoln's attitude on
the suffrage question la shared by many
of us. A half truth la aa bad aa a false
hood. There waa once a man who In
sisted that "it said In the Bible There Is
no God.' " When we looked up the pass
age we found: "The fool hath said in
his heart 'there la no God.' " 8o much
for half truths.
Lincoln's statement concerning suffrage
appeared In the New 8a!em Journal of
June IS. 1KM. The words were written
when Lincoln waa not yet 27 yeara of age,
before he was admitted to the bar, and
are1 as folio vs:

he changed his mind in regard to the

SILVER CITY. 'eb., Sept. 22. To tho
Editor of The Bee: During the present
destructive war in Europe, It la natural
that the many citizens of foreign birth
should feel strongly In Its progress and
outcome. Yet I cannot but depreciate
some articles I see printed In The Bee
from former citizens of the various na
tions. The fact that so many Germane
have sought a home in this country must
be proof that they were not satisfied
with conditions at home. This Is true of
all other nationalities Then why should
they be so Interested In the outcome of
the present European atruggle. They have
left their native land berauae of Its
limited opportunities, to setk a broader
field In this great country of aura. The
moat of them have taken out naturaliza
tion papers and become citizens of this
country- Why can't they lay aside their
prejudice and view the struggle as every
American citizen ahould do.

I am not sure that It will be the means

the world haa progressed. President Wil

prayer for peace. The sentiment we will
all approve. But the efficacy few will ex
pect. When Garfield waa shot the whole
country was called to prayer for his re
covery. He died Just the same. When
the country was burnt up In 1S94 by
drought and hot winds, the people were
again assembled for prayer, but the
drought abated m t. When McKlnley re.
celved the aasassin's bullet he was the
subject of the nation'a prayer. He died Just
the same. The laws of God and the laws
of nature are Immovable and unchange
able and If either have ever been changed
by prayer I have failed In my researches
to find on authenticated change.
The people of this country may pray
for peace, but the war will go on Just
the same till the mightiest army pre
vails and- when that most desired day
comes, be assured that another gTeat
stride in the evolution of the world has
taken place and the future will profit

A very queen she walks. Indeed,
So warm and loving in the sun.
While on the brow of earth she lays
Cool hands when work of day is done
And in her lap proud Ceres lays

With crimson woodbine deftly drapes.
And when at last the summer l'es
