Social Welfare and the War.
As s result of the war. Jane Addsms see
an eclipse falling over the great social welfare
propaganda in tills and othpr countries. Thin re
markable movement which has made such head
way In the last few years Is, in her vie, sbout
to enter a twilight sons from which It will not
wholly emerge for years to come. "All organ
ized social welfare artlvitlca are put bao.k for
)ears," says Miss Addams. "We have to work
up public opinion anew."
The apprehended mischief Is to lie played by
he psychological reaction of wholesale slaughter
upon humanity. Human sensibilities bad been
whittled down to their finest point, the social
consciousness was never more alert. We
vaunted the tendency toward universal peace as
the climax of our altruistic dreams. "One has
a vested right," says Mlsa Addams. "in the finer
sensibilities of the human race, which are to be
called opon for aid In the betterment of the
conditions under which we live. Then comes
along a thing like this war and makes its ap
peal to brutish instincts and we are thrown
Some may think Miss Addams too pessi
mistic. Others msy knowingly say we had idly
reckoned too far on the Influence of our ideals
f we forgot the existence of "brutish in
stinct" or that we were warned not to deceive
ourselves, while yet carrying on our splendid
social welfare work, as to the dawn of that bliss
ful day when nations shall war no more. But,
owever much we may wish that the very
horrors of this war shall accelerate the work of
war prevention, let us get the force of this
observation by Miss Addams:
When a million men are suffering in trenches wet
nd cold and wounded, what are a few children suf
fering under hard condltlona In tha fartorlea? Take
old age pensions, upon which England, France and
Germany have been working. With widows and
fatherless children numbered by the thousands In
hose countries, what are a few old people, more or

Though new seal and determination may be
born out of this awful war, new obstacles to so

task will be larger, it must be abandoned, but
rather that it must enlist our more energetic
and unceasing efforts. '

One per cent of the total vote Is a mighty
amall fraction, but It offers opportunity this
year for Nebraska to slough off a few party
circles like those credited to the populists, the
progressives or the prohibitionists, if not
throughout the state, at least In most of the
various senatorial and representative districts,
counties and other minor sub-divisions. In New
Jersey where the deadline ia fixed In the pri
mary vote, he progressives have Just forfeited
their place on the regular ballot by falling to
poll the required percentage of the total. In
this county the populists have been out of
commission for some time, and If the vote in
the laat primary were the test, the progressives
would be self-eliminated too.
The aggregate vote In the entire state In the
coming Nebraska election will probably be In
the neighborhood of ISO, 000, of which one per

Japan's Idea of Ui.
A professor in the University of Tokio has
recently been quoted by newspapers In New
York, where he visited, as saying that certain
Interests have persistently and systematically
tried to create the impression in Japan that the
people of the United States hold the Japanese
In contempt and that they are In no sense
friends. We have had evidences in this country
that, if such perfidious Influences were at work,
they have not been entirely unsuccessful, for
frequent reports of anti-American demonstra
tions In Japan have come to us. It mast be ad
mitted, however, that the enlightened view of
Americans In Japan Is not this.
So far aa the United States Is concerned, It
haa been aa a rule generous in its treatment of
the Japanese and la now, as a result of the
European war, about to enter upon more inti
mate relations through the open door of com
merce. With the great trading nations of
Europe engaged in war, we shall be called on
for a large measure of the commerce which they
have heretofore supplied. Our merchants and
manufacturers will, undoubtedly, make the most
of their special opportunity of Impressing Japan
with both the friendship of the United States
as well as the mutual advantage of their rade
In the end, we may feel sure, closer and more
cordial relations will ensue. This Is not the
time for putting the opportunities which come
to us through the crucible of war to mean ad
vantage, but rather for cultivating the in
tlmacies of confidence and the square deal in
business. If we do what is right we may expect
large things In Japan.
Short Ballot in Kansas.
Just by way of illustration and stimulation,
let us call the attention of Nebraska to the
plight of neighboring Kansas, where the d
mand for a short ballot is even stronger than it
is with us. While one or two elective offices
familiar here are missing there, the Kansas bal
lot includes as novelties to us the offices of
state superintendent of insurance, state printer
and three places on the State Board of Irrlga
tlon. County tickets in Kansas are likewise so
long-drawn-out as to call for radical revision,
one of the boasts cf Henry J. Allen, in his cam
palgn as the progressive candidate for governor,
being, if elected, he is "going to take a club to
the archaic system of county government that
has persisted since 1740 under the English con
centlon and knock It out." He further declares
that the short ballot program can save the coun
ties o,f Kansas $1,000,000 a year and the state
f 500,000. If cutting out the surplus offices
can do this in Kansas, it ran do something like
it also In Nebraska.

Miss Earle made thousands' of frlenda

to thla excellent young woman concludes
with twe stansaa of her recent poem,

BROKEN BOW. Neb.. Oct .-To the
Editor of The Bee: In The Boe'a Letter
Box of H. Fischer's reply to D. C. John Is
typical of a German. He aays the allies
may starve Germany, but will never con
quer It. HU beat plan would bo to alt
quietly and "wait and aee." England did
not want tha war with Germany, but aa
the kalnera military advisers thought
they could fight the world they took upon
themselves to break Uie neutrality of
poor Belgium aa an easy way to get at
France and march to Paris In sixteen
days. Thanks to tha plucky Belgians,
the Germans long-planned sixteen days'
march to Paris failed.
If Germans are a peace loving people,
why all this preparation for war, and why
did Germany dictate the ultimatum from
Austria to Servla? Why does Germany
require a large navyT Is there any reason
why Germany should have such a navy?

The warlike tendencies of Germany's crown prince
have In the past ben represented as a source it
much embarrassment to his father, who, apparently,
wss most dcslous of building up a peaceful reputa
tion for Germany. Rut now Prince Frederick Wlil
Ism's firebrand pollrieg. well as his absolute de
votion to the German army and the militarist Idea,
have stood him In good stead, and. combined with
his undoubted valor upon the field, have won for
him the coveted Iron Cross and the frank com
mendations of the emperor. The New Tork Times
quotes, in dlcus!on of the militarist prince, a nook,
entitled "Der Kronprlnx." r.y one Dr. Paul Llman
of Berlin, which gives an excellent Idea of the young
man. Dr. Uman has endeavored to explain the
prince to his people, reconciling his sometimes rather
pusxllng eccentricities with the character and men
tality of one destined to be Germany's future ruler.
His view of the prince la particularly Interesting Just
now, as It was written with the firm belief that
Frederick William as kaiser would one day become
Involved In the same sort of struggle that exists
Dr. Llman paints an attractive portrait of the
kaiser's heir. In spite of all his vagaries, we learn
that he Is popular throughout Germany, totally de
void of "side," and the keenest sort of a sportsman.
Moreover, and this Is less known, we hear of him
as a diligent reader of hooks, especially on history,
and as a warm admirer of Napoleon, despite the
fact thst the great Corslcan humbled Germany to
the dust In his campaigns.
In his endeavor to show the crown prince as he
really Is, Dr. Llman haa not forgotten the book on
his hunting experlencea which the kaleer's heir pub
lished a couple of years ago. In Its pages, he says,
tha prince appear to ua quite without vanity or
literary frills, without the craving for noisy ac
clamation. The hunting-book was written after the crown
prince's Journey to the far east. It describes tl-e,r
hunting In India and Ceylon and all aorta of exciting
experlencea In far away lands, but the young hunter
does not forget the countless expeditions that ho
haa undertaken within the boundaries of hla native
Germany, and which form an Important part of his
regular round of existence. And It Is in describing
these that much of hla real nature rises to the
surface, as, for Instance, In these sentences:
"We hunters pity from the bottom of our hearts
those men to whom hunting game In some form
or other la Impossible or unknown. And when I say
hunting, I really mean stalking. To my mind, who
soever thinks at all of hunting that wonderful com
bination of fighting, enjoyment of nature, and self
contomplatton Is thinking In reality only of stalk
ing, and recognises things like a tiger hunt only as
a sort of exercise In shooting, by no means as any
thing truly sportsmanlike.
"To the real sportsman the great book of beauti
ful nature opens Itself willingly. In the brilliant
sunrise. In the tired, silent midday sleep. In the soft
evening which spreads peace over forest and field,
in tha wild, howling mountain storm, the voice of
nature speaks to us solitary huntsmen in accents
always different and always Impressive, and sings
to us the noble song of the Creator.
"Such hours, spent alone only they make
life on earth worth living! For beauty and peace
fulness many an evening of hunting that I have en
joyed is, in my opinion, surpassed by nothing In
the world. How often during those evenings have
I thought of those words Inscribed by the Grand Mo
guls over their palace In Agra: 'If there is a Para
dise on earth It ia here, It is here.'
"Nothing binds frlenda so ctoaely as hunting ex
perlencea which they have shared. When at night
the flames are flickering in the fireplace, when happy
sportsmen are stretched out lq big leather chairs,
clgareta between their Hps, eyes glancing toward the
trophies on the wall, reminding each other of 'how
we stalked the deer together that time,' then it s
that genuine comradeship is engendered."
Dr. Lyman calls this a "free, honest confession,"
and It la Indeed the confeaalon of one whose instinct
and love for the hunt might well breed in htm a
passion for that greater, more thrilling hunting pai-
I I me war and the hunting of men. At all events.
the crown prince has ever been on the side of the
army. From tha preface of the prince's book dealing
with the army and navy, "Germany In Arms," a
few lines show how ardently the author embraced
"We are living in a time when men proudly point
to their culture, a time which is but too willing
to plume Itself on Its cosmopolitanism and takes
pleasure in dreaming Idle dreams of the possibility
of eternal peace.
"Such a conception of life la un-Gierman. It is
not for us. The German, who loves his country, who
believes In Ha greatness and future, and does not
wish to see any lessening of Its prestige, will not
close his eyes In such dreams, not allow himself to
be lulled to sleep by the peace lullaby of the
"If the German people decide to risk life and
property In a war, then let the world be full of
devils and rise against us in arms; we can handle It,
no matter how great the peril of the hour!"
I.Ike Thla father, who has dabbled In the fine arts,
his heir also haa tried his hand at composing mualo
and painting ptoturee. But, avers Dr. Ltman, ha U
not at all conceited about hla productions. When ha
has finished a picture he smilingly Inquires of thoae
privileged to see It whether they can guess what tt
represents a snowy landscape or a negro chieftain,
still lite, or a battle scene.
But such activities are merely secondary; first
and foremost the young man Is a soldier.
"He does his duty just like any one of hla com
rades, from early morning until the moment when
the rest of his fellow officers are relieved. And some
times even he stays behind a couple of hours to
tlstea to the Instructions of superior officers, cheer
fully observing: Oh, my wife will send me some
sandwiches and a half bottle of wine.' "

To old Methuselah's back yard
And dig us up that ancient basque.
Dsme Fashion Is a tyrant bold.
But as a tyrant, has a tasque
Of Herculean sise If she
E'er hop'S to make me wear a basque.
She'll have to chloroform me, yes
To pour it down me from a flasque
Reduce me tj unconsciousness.
E'er she can put on me a basque.
I might have worn a trouserette
(I could also have worn a masque)
And kept my reason but not so,
If I should don a hideous basque.
Let dum-dum bullets end my life.
Then let them put me in a casque;
But nnver, here I draw the Hne,
Let them dare clothe me in a basque.
