teither ide Is decisively besien. Hie sl'illty of
the warring nation to feed their fori eg In the
field snd t home, will, in sll probability, ul
timately determine matters.
Some 20.finn.000 men r mobilized In the
vsrlous countries si war. These are sll with

being sre tion-produers. In neutral countries

But, we are told, the I'nlted Slates remains
as (he great bread basket of tue world from
which to draw provisions. But with Itftelf and
Its other customers In pesreful parts of the
world to supply, the I'nlted States rsnnot serve
Indefinitely as the world's bresd basket while a
large part of tbe world wars without working.
In other words, nations that destroy their own
means of feeding themselves cannot remain at
war for sn unlimited time. With available
supplies vanishing and the powers of replenish
ment for the time parelyred In half a doxen
countries, exhaustion and cessation would seem
to wait only the operstlon of these factors. If
the war goes well into next spring to Interfere
with grain seeding In some of these lands It will
have reduced the world's area of planting by
many millions of acres and set up a further
barrier to the progress of the fighting.
Chairman Georpe'i Good Work.
' Regardless of the outcome of (be coming
election, the good work done by Chairman
eorge of the republican slate committee stsnds
forth both by rontrsst snd by comparison. Mr.
George hss directed the rsmpaign with judg
ment snd composure and good humor. He lis
not become embroiled In any factional differ
ences, and be has commsuded the undivided sup
port of his stste committee without any back
fire.' Taking hold of a chaotic orgiDlsatlon, he
has united the component perls so that the re
publican 'party , in Nebraska, whether It elects
every roan on the ticket or not, win be ready to
be mobilized for mass action against the com
mon enemy whenever summoned to enter the
lists. Chairman Cieorge has accomplished this
result chiefly through his own personality and
persistent industry, almost without campaign
funds and In the face of other embarrassing
obstacles. He Is entitled to his credit mark, not
next month, nor next year, but now.
The Canal and Railroads.
President Sprotile of the Southern Pacific
believes that the opening of the Panama canal,
diverting traffic from the railroads, will serve
only to complicate, the problem of railroad earn
ings, already serious. Furthermore, he believes
that' even though business should txpand within
Its present bounds of distribution, as it did In
1004. 1905 and 10, "there would be such a
congestion of railroad facilities as will stop (he
boom by congesting the business or the public
and preventing that kind of material Improve
ment and development which every man of busi
ness, large and small, Is looking forward to as
It Is for this reason, according to this au
thority that the railroads are ordering no new
equipment, making no large extensions or Im
provements, but merely resting on their laurels
and awaiting developments. The crying need,
be says. Is ''a soundly Informed snd constructive
public opinion, Instead of destructive criticism,
which destroy confidence and helps to make
hard timee." In which, of course, all sane men
agree. .And what is more, the candid eo-opera-tlon
of such Interests as Mr. Sproule represents
Is essential to the upbuilding of such a senti
ment Mr. Sproule belongs to tae new order
of corporate affairs in California, once abso
lutely ruled by the Southern Pacific. Yet hi the
country bad the very beet aid of these big busi
ness men in any serious effort at correcting ex
isting abuses? it Is a question.
As to the tansi. Its chief effect should be to
develop a larger volume of business. If the same
sagacious effort Is exerted by the railroads In
belping to solve present problems which was
put forth to obstruct the canal project, we shsll
bve nothing to worry about. The problems are
mutual and should be dealt with accordingly.
Admitting the soundness of tbe plea for con
structive criticism. It is useless to blicd our
selves to the fact that we might have had such
a public sentiment a long while ago but for the
hindrance of railroad Influence under the old
regimes. The people hall the change that has
come about, but public skepticism must not be
too severely criticised by these Interests.

No matter what the occasion, there always seems to
be some person, firm or corporation willing to cheat
tha government. It Is a poor memory that does not
recall tha Spanish war b"f scandal. A few weeks
before the Panama canal waa opened for traffic. It
, waa reported that the steel used In ome of the great
lock was of an Inferior quality, dua to the fraudu
lent efforta of certain person Interested In supplying
the government with construction material. There
was a feeling of deep relief, however, when Washing
ton officials explained that tha alleged conspiracy had
been discovered before harm had been done. Now
cornea the latest example bad butter supplied to th
American troopa at Vera Cms. According to Deputy
Attorney General Kennedy, It waa "the most dsmnable
piece of work ever perpetrated on the govf rnment."
It appears that a large produce firm In New YorU,
a member of the New York Mercantile exchange, was
the successful bidder for tha contract. The butfr
supplied bore tha official guarantee of the xchang.
The poor quality of the butter waa discovered, not
through complaint from Vara Oruis. but through s
proteat made by a compet'ng produce house. Infor
mation brought cut at the government's Inquiry lnt'i
tha butter and egg exchange "monopoly" In New Tork
ahowed that the contracting firm had been suspended
for one year, and that the exchange'a Inspector, br
whoea connivance the fraud was carried out, was
discharged. Thla employe started In business for
himself and shortly afterward was admitted to tho
exchange as a "buttr broker." Alt this does not
speak well for the Mercantile exchange. The dlacov
ery comes at a time peculiarly unfortunate for the
butter and egg exrhar.grg throughout the country, for
4hey are under suspicion. These exchanges, like those
dealing la gralas or cotton, are generally supposed to
promote better trade conditions.
Wane f the Recall.
The theory of the recall of Judges, which reacha-l
enactment In some states and was wlde'y advocated
by the more radical element In olhfrs. aeems to bn
losing ground snd gradually falling Into the list of ex
ploded eraie. One of the prominent examples of the
chang" la Governor Osborn cf Michigan, who was two
eara ago advocating the nonaenae as well as th.
sound points of tha progressiva program. He no
perceives the weakness of the proposal for submitting
judicial recall to popular election and Is advocating
the election of Judges for Ufa la order to free hem
from political domination. Rut he mixes up the mat
ter by talking about tha removal of unfit Judges by
petition at popular elections, which would be putting
their office tenure under political influence.
In the advocacy of leaving the judicial power unin
fluenced by nolltlra there I no cultivation of the
belief that the Judges are perfect! They are humnn
Ilk every other Instrumentality. But the undoubted
need of. Improving their tardiness and their tendency
to observe prescribed forme rather than to deal out
justice la not to be met by making them subject to
tha favor of politics or making their decisions liable
to be overturned by the popular opinion at a given
flection. It la eaaentlal to the administration of Jus
tice that It shall be as free aa peaslblo from sub
servience to tha popular whim of tha moment. This
la only to be done by making tha Judicial tenure
either for life or tor long terms except In caaea where
the misconduct Is so flagrant aa to require removal
Raslaess the Mead.
With the promleed reopmlng of tha cotton trade
with England It Is estimated that the export trade Of
the country fcr the next a1x months will be many
ir.llllona beyond anything heretofore recorded In th
'history of American commerce. One of the Interesting
aad In a way freak tnstanrea of increase of exports
Is that of horeeehoes. The New York cuatom home
shows tha export from that point In IMS of MW pounds
for the month of September, while the month of
September of thla year ahowed an export of !,T7,40I
pounds. - -
At the same time that exports are flowing to
Europe In phenomenal bulks, the range of: domestic
manufactures la rapidly extending to take account of
fbe articles that have been ahut off from Import.
Hence It Is that the country la deriving prosperity In
both directions. During the process of adjustment
'there may he some discomfort felt by the consumer
aa prlcea are apt to' Increase somewhat. But this will
be temporary. It la a law of trade that prosperity it
sifted through all clasaea of society, and that, with
mills running and fields productive and with every
body employed, the distribution of prosperity will be

Is coming a. vail for a better adjustment
of the'fii:-! schools' to the needs of the
people. ! Nebraska ' Farmers' Con
gress of 1S1- in December passed a reso
lution ssklng the legislature to provide
for the appointment by the' gov?rnor of
a'aehoel Jawr revision commission.
The Farmers' Congress of .1913 gave sn
open forum discussion of the school ques
tion and' were unanimoua in passing a
resolution asking for n, committee com
posed partly of farmers to study th- rnral
school question and report at the ISU(
I had the honor of being made chair
man of that committee. 11. A. Collins
of Papllllon Is secretary. We have no
funds tor expense of investigation. We
ask ell the people interested In the rural
schools to write us their view.
Wr make this a basis for action: ihe
country people must control (heir own
choolt. w hether' as a smgln district or
a consolidation of. two or more districts.
For this reason the Farmera" Congreaa
opposes the "county unit" s presented
by the governor ommlHsion. This pism
proposes to iiislo the office, both count'
and state superintendent, appointive.
They term It "taking the office out of,
politics," when In reality It will be plac
ing politicians In control of tha schools,
and, more than that, it will remove thee
offices from the reach of the people who
We do not question tha motive of the
comrolaston. but we believe that back of '
thla "county unit plan" I the combined
power ef the special Interests that profit
by their manipulation of tha school sys
tem. They can direct a few. but they
cannot control the many. Wa may Lewrn
from Burope'a --ire calamity that auto
cratic rule ia dangerous In the end.
Study this question now before election
and say to your candidates for the legis
lature and for superintendent: "Do you
favor the county unit plan with central
ised power, or do you stand for the dis
trict plan (one or a consolidation of more
than one, with the reopie.m control?
This Is to be tha vitul question: "Who
shall control tht common school?"
There is only one way that a people
may hav a volee In government, and
thai Is by the right of. the ballot. Yield
that light and you give, up all all hut
the right to labor, and beer the burden
of fixation Imposed by others.
