Tlio toilou trials crpfiiVd ijr tho war has been referred to as "A national danger 'bat calls for national action."- The' Washington Tout re cently slimmed It up in a word hy showing that exports of rotten to date amount to 131,721 bales, an compared with 1.323.S54 bales for the Fame period last year. It Is easy to aerept the view, therefore, that this Is a time for big think ing and big acting. - Yet other war louses to us are inevitable and our only guarantee agafnst them lies In the pro digious resources of our noil, which this year the government estimates will yield product worth $4,500,000,000 to $.",000,000,000, exclusive of cotton. Then to this bewildering sum we have, to add the receipts from live stock and other natural resources, which cf-rtolnly should keep us from falling entirely Into the slough of despond as a result of the cotton collapse. Wall street experts have figured that exchange bills from wheat and oats alone this year should ap proximate 1300,000,000, which Is aboot 0 per cent of what cotton did In 1313. Every recurring harvest represents so much new wealth antf with the limitless soil possibili ties of the Cnited States, and particularly of this western section, It Is folly for us to allow the ; most appalling temporary disaster to destroy out confidence in our own agricultural, commerc'al and industrial abilities, which are equal to the severest test and afford us a complete gunr.'taty if national stability. A Difference and a Distinction. Republican county officers who besougjitthe legislature to rulno their salaries Come In. for a terrific drubbing ,by our local democratic con temporary. Bur 'this same World-Herald to this day has had not a word to say about the. $50,000 Jail feeding graft, which the reform rVernocratlc sheriff tried to put across after obtaining votes from the people under misrepresentation that ho would be content with the $4,0CO salary at taching to the office. There's a difference and a distinction between seeking a raise of salary by law-fid means, and picking tho taxpayers' pocket by grabbing in sanity fees or gouging extra profits out of feed ing Jail prisoners. There's difference and a distinction, too, be tween a public officer asking the legislature to In crease the compensation allotted to hi office, and a public officer hiring lawyers to upset laws he has sworn to obey and enforce, In order to reach into the treasury for more money to feather his own neBt. . . "Are the servant greater than the master?1 asks the Chicago Herald. The scriptures say not, and we take it the scriptures apply also to Chicago. . The forthcoming balance sheet of Ring Ak-' Sar-Ben'a chancellor of the exchequer may be confidently expected to ehed Joy and1 sunlight over the realm. Another of the anomalies of the war may be mentioned in the German'! invitation to tho Bel gians to return to Antwerp and enjoy the quiet life of a great city. , " , If those new Krupp gnne really have a range of twenty-five miles, we bad better begin con sidering the question of moving Omaha back to about the location of Fremont. Remember that no republican holding office In Douglas county could possibly. have, gotten a salary boost from the last legislature without the consent and approval of tha democratic, governor. The poor old benighted Hindu may "do Ufa best he kin do," but bow much will that be when the w la try winds of northern Europe get to whistling through the folds of hit semi-tropical turban. To date, th World-Herald ha not said a word la retraction of Ita "ninety per cent" fake with which It hae been trying to bolster up the democratic candidate running aa a nopartlaan for chief Juetlce. ' . . Candidatee for the legislature are telling what they will do if elected. We are waiting for one of them to distinguish himself by announc ing that every bill ha fathers will be entitled. "A bill to repeal " "Let peace prevail," shouts a Minnesota newspaper, which recalls the famous slogan once uttered by Adam Bede through his Pine Knot, 'Let us love one another." It was calcu lated to bring a lot of warring edltora to time and we hop this latter appeal is even more effectual. 7 of Oarneau ro4 act ru.t-M The TVantern Cracker Bakera aaaorlatlon h.. holding a- roaettng-aera to Inveatlgato tha charge A fim i-uiuns aiunn aoma member.

N'ot many weeks ago a shipload of Hindus was denied the privilege of landing on Canadian soli, it took vigorous, even violent measures to prevent the landing. The Hindus, it was said, felt aggrieve,! at Mother England's failure to Intervene In their behalf. No doubt the maternal heart yearned to appease the fraternal strife, but the maternal hend was far too wise to let mere emotion .override reason, and lead to the rash extreme of attempting to dissuade Canada. At last, however, dear old Nfother England has found a landing place for her Hindus where questions are asked and the word- welcome is writ In the very air. If the port of Vancouver was cold and forbidding, the sunny shores of Marseilles' must seem the very highest haven of hospitality. For to old Mother England has come a time when uniformed Hindus and Can adians look alike. For. the time being, all tha elements of Britain's far-flung lines of population may be brought into closer harmonv than ever 'before by the common demand that means so much to the sovereignty on which "the aun never eets." Insuring- the Pastor's Life. A Chicago church has taken out a life In surance policy for Its pastor, which it proposes to maintain and commends the plan to other churches as an incentive to longer pastorates. In selecting life Insurance Instead of potatoes or turnips as the perquisite, the Idea doubtless is that the chain of continuous premium pay ments will acrve to bind the pastor and the people together in the sense of mutual obliga tion, while other forms Of donations might not. at least hava not In ye oldea times. But what Ms the matter with the up-to-date method of paying the pastor a living salary" and leaving him, like other men, free to attend td his own wants for the present and1 competency for the future? Is not the present tendency in that direction and away from near-charity. clergyman's discounts and free privileges, which cannot but compromise a,ny man's self-respect and standing in the community? If we understand the situation, what this Chicago church proposes is not progressive, but distinctly reactionary and the sooner such things are rled down by the churches, the sooner will they and their ministerial servants attain that larger leadership and influence which belong to them. 'Th laborer Is worthy ot h5s hire" should, it seems to us, mean as much, It not more, to the church than any purely tem poral enterprise. ' ' Aa almost its first official act. the federal reserve board approved the cotton loan fund plan to help out the banks that have been car rying the southern planters which la quite natural Inasmuch as two-thirds of the federal re serve board members are southerners. Wonder if they would have fronted so promptly if it had been a loan fund to relieve a marttet over burdened with northern wheat. The democratic state committee, makes an appeal for popular contribution to the demo cratic campaign fund, with the explanation that only with such help will democratic candidates "be free to do the people's bidding." It la to laugh! JTH v3 -9- l.xw'e n.-ln. a IHajrrnce to State.

M. CAIN. Method for Teaching; the Deaf. RRNSON. ieh., Oct. IS. To tha Editor of The. line: In a recent report of the meeting of the Parent' Association of the Nebraska School for the Deaf, the meeting Is said to have been "a large and enthusiastic, meeting," at which resolu tions Indoralng the Neh-aska oral law and the oral method were passed. Aa a mat ter of fact this meeting was composed of a number of parents who had Just come to Omaha to enter their children at the .school, and who were marshalled by the superintendent and oral teachers, and who were so uninformed and misin formed that they did the bidding of those Interested. The Nebraska oral law, can have- the sanction and support ot no fair-minded person. It Is contrary to the principle of American freedom to enact a lan- that will maM mandatory the method of edu cating a child or a certain group of chil dren. It I clasa legislation of the rank est kind. The deaf people of Nebraska are up In arms against this law and will do all they can to have It repealed at the next meeting of the legislature, and carnetly urge all fair-minded men and women to assist them. The great majority of schools fot the deaf In America are combined system schools. They fit the method to the child and not, as Is trying to be done tn Ne braska, by legal enactment, fit the child to the method. Because of the fact that America la after educational results and la not hidebound by any alngl method the deaf of America lead the world In both an educational and a material sense. The deaf of Europe ar not in the aame clnee with them. The question Is, la Na braika going to adopt Europe failure or keep abreast of tha great American schools for the deaf? If the citizens of Nebraaka know what they are . about and are not misled by faddists, they will repeal thla obnoxious and unjust law. - A. I-.

The writer has not failed to rrd with intense In terest what lias been published on both side of the Atlantlc'upon the pnscnt lamentable onditlons, cre ated by tne greatest war know n to history, embrac.ng nine countries, rive of these aincng the greatest na tion Britain. France, (iermany, Kusela. Austria and Japan engulfing In the.r train Belgium, Servla and Montenegro. That the former condlt.or.a can ever be restored seem Improbable. Some I art of the civilised wvrld may have to undergo reconstruction. Among the forth' omlMg results there Is to be proven once again the fallacy that world peace can be ecured throush preparation by each nation fir war. On the contrary, there can he no possible oeeape from the conclusion that war can be abolished only through a union of powerful, peace nations, resolved to pre serve the peace themselves and also, If absolutely necessary, to enforce It upon others. The present war gives us upon a small scale an Illustration of the forthcoming un.on of nation to pre serve peace. In the agreement executed by the allies, Britain. Ruaala and France, which blnda them to act only In unison In all matters affecting peace. No one separate nation has power to act, .only the three na tions united have all power. Preparation for war as a meane of ensuring peace haa been proven a failure. It has been tried for i.W year and has alwaya precipitated war, since one na tion "preparing" compela her neighbor to do likewise one feara the other, and both Increase "preparation" until the Inevitable struggle bursts forth. The Itemed r. W have aeen that "preparation for war" by one nation begets similar preparation by those nations which feel themselves endangered. The remedy for this la evidently one world-wide organisation of as many peaceful powers aa possible to prevent war and Insist that differences between nations shall be peace fully adjusted by The Hague conference, or other tribunal satisfactory to the contenaanta. in me 1a.11 resort, If necessary, the world peace court could de liver Judgment by a majority vote, which would he binding upon the powers. Without separate armies and na vie there could be no war, the world would be at peace. This fact can not be gainsaid. It Is therefor In thla direction that men of peace should labor. , One great step toward this, aa I have said, has been made by the following announcement: hero lies the germ which only needs development to banish war from clvlllred nations: "The British, French and Ruasian government, on Saturday, September 5, mutually agreed not to make peace separately during the present war, and no one of them shall demand conditions Of peace without the previous approval of the others." Here the allied nations combine and act tut one. After the present belligerents agree upon peaceful settlement, Germany and Austria should be the first Invited by the allies to join In forming a League of Feace. Should they accept, then aome of the other natlona might be Invited. At the first meeting ot the league some general principles might be formulated: First, one general World Peace commission shall be established to which each member shall contribute toward expenditure In proportion to Its population and wealth. Their respective fleet shall be merged, con trolled and operated under such management as the league may direct from time to time. No war policy, or attack upon any nation or fleet ahall be made ex cept by a majority vote of two-thirds of all the mem mers of the World Ptaco league, and then only after timely notice to the nations threatened. The commis sion shnll exercise undisputed authority, always pro vided It Is sufctalned and Its action approved from time to time by two-thirds of the total membership. t'minllon of Control. An executive committee shall be elected by two thirds majority of the commission, a separate vote being taken upon each candidate. This committee shall irlect a president and vice president by a ma jority! vote who shall each serve four years, but thi vie president shall serve six years for the first term, and his successor be elected for four years, thus pre venting tho simultaneous change of both tho former high officials. Th;e difference between the proposed commission and the present situation In regard to peace and war Is fundamental. For twenty-five hundred years tribes and nations have warred with each other. Inflicting such barbarities as make the flesh creep aa one reads, and aill these years it has been held' by many that "preparation for war" prevents war, yet today we have the greatest outburst ot war that this long his tory recounts. We submit that the day la past when we sfcall longer tolerate this Inhuman sacrifice of hulnsh beings. The civilised world hae tried "prep aration for war" long enough. W now propose to rend war Impossible, at least between the best of those nations classed as clvlllred. When these lead, others can be compelled to follow, or oetraclxed, it this ever becomes necessury. The league would act upon tha high moral ' standing of world peace, de termined to maintain It when necessary In the Judg ment of the two-thirds majority of its mambera. Even if ruccess bo delayed, sooner or later Its triumph would be certain. I ' This slight sketch may serve to awaken Interest which of Itself Is' most desirable in' th's phenomenal crisis. If tture be a surer way to peace, so much the better. Whenever and however the killing of men by men under cover of war can be prevented, let all promising modes be submitted and tried, for war is the world's greatest crime. One thing Is certain, peace upon earth can never come from '.'preparation for war," hence let us discard that fallacy and try other means. It Is submitted that a league of Peace, embracing the chief nation, Is worthy of consideration. V Tramp Tour dog Jeat bit a piece of flesh outer ine leg. num.. Woman iJlail vou mentioned It.
