Wheat and the War.
The sosrlnf. price of wheat jtlvea present need" j
tor attention to tlie food question. Europo'n
requisition, on our store are having an effect
that le perfectly natural, although It it Dot at
all Improbable that tome portion of tbe rise in
price of wheat la due to the speculative activity
of gamblers In (rain. The fart remains that
Europe 1 shorter than usual la the matter of
food supply, while the demand haa been Intensi
fied by the operations of the armies. Food Is
more Imperetlvely necessary for an army than
arms and ammunition, and the governments en
gaged In tbe great struggle are merely exercis
ing ordinary prudence In protecting tbe commis
sary department of their military organization.
It Is unfair, though, to blame the farmers
for the advance In price. A very considerable
portion of the crop of 1914 was out of the hands
of the producers long before the sensational ad
vance In market price began. If those farmers
who still have their wheat In their bins are
holding back for still higher prices, they are
but emulating the grain dealers, who have thj
wheat In storage, and who are exacting he ut
most in the matter of value. It would hardly
be reasonable to expect the American farmer to
enter on a world-wide philanthropic movement
at this time, and sell bis wheat for less than tho
market price, especially when it is morally cer
tain that some middleman would step In and
read an increased profit through a second sale.

bill introduced at Lincoln has for Its ob
ject the further control of the men who loan
money on chattel mortgages or personal security
at exorbitant rates of interest. The move is in
the right direction, for it deals with one of the
abuses of modern society. The operation of the
"loan sharks" In the past has been marked by
oppression of their victims, and a source of great
distress among those who can not protect them
selves. Until a better plan can be devised for
assisting those who are suddenly brought to the I in in ungovernable delirium." says the New York
Albert at Belelasa.
A mo Doech, the war correspondent of 'World's
Work, tells the following Incident:
"On an afternoon late In October the town square
In Fumes wss full of military autoraobtts and a
few provision wagons. I did not see any field pieces
or machine gun. Every last one was right upon th
firing line. My feet were tired from walking over
the Belgian blocks, and I bold tenaciously to the
sidewalk passing around the square, though It was
mostly taken up with cafe tables and baby trees In
boxes. At one point the tables were empty and a
single sentry was sauntering up and down. 1 atopped
to ask Mm th way to the gendarmerie, and In the
middle of giving me the directions, he came to at
tention, as a door opened behind me, and saluted.
"Two men cam out of the door, one rather tall.
with an easy manner, and smartly dressed as a gen
eral In th Belgian army. The other was older, also
a general, wearing. If anything, the more gold braid
of the two. They entered a waiting automobile and
dror off as casualty aa two men at home might leave
their office for thetr club.
"Bomethlng about the first of th two men im
pressed me as familiar. I had only seen his back, but
that had arrested my attention. I thought possibly I
had seen him at th beginning of th war In Brussels,
so I asked the sentry his name.
'That Is our king. Albert,' he said quite simply.
"During the next couple of days I saw the king of
Belgium a number of tiroes. He spent his nights at a
small villa on the seaahor at La Panne, a hundred
yards possibly beyond the hotel where I had spent
mine. He passed through the streets as unnoticed as
any one of the other Belgians who had retreated from
Antwerp and Ghent ahead of the army, but preferred
th chilly nights In an unhealed aeaside hotel In Bel
glum to comfort somewhere beyond. It seemed to be
a point of courtesy on the part of the Belgians not to
bother their king with ceremony at this trying time.
I doubt If he cares much for ceremony, anyhow.
Searching- around for a single adjective to describe
htm, I should call him off-hendod. His manner, even
then, while alert, was casual. It ts easy to see why
th Belgians love lilm. If kings had always been as
simple and direct as Albert, I am Inclined to think
democracy would have langqulshed."

The Case of the Dacia. ,
The rights of neutrals, and especially tle
right to trade with belligerents, are coming In
for a thorough consideration, as a result of the
exchange of notes between the United States
and Great Britain. One of the most difficult
phases of the question is presented by tbe case
of the Dacia. This vessel was owned by Ger
mans, and sailed under the German flag. Since
the beginning of the war, its registry has been
changed, and it is now proposed that under the
Ajnerlcan flag It' shall carry a cargo of cottou
from a United States port to one In Germany.
To this procedure Great Britain enters protest.
At the beginning of the war. when a great
fleet of vessels sailing under tbe German flag
was laid up at various American ports. It was

ert Dollar, a vessel engaged between North and
South American ports, tho change of regUtry
was effected, and the vessel sailed under the
American flag, although the British warships
interfered with Its first voyage. On the Pacific
coast several other vessels have changed from
German to the American flag, and are engaged
in the carrying trade. These instances support
the contention that the Dacia, may be allowed
to make the trip that Is now requested by tbe
secretary of state as a temporary arrangement.
If tbe right to change registry may be estab
lished, It will go a long way towards the estab
lishment of the American merchant marine un
der the proposed ship purchase act. Without
this provision, however, the law would be of
little avail. The sooner this principle of Inter
national law is defined and fixed, the better it
will be for all nations.

A Sagaeatloa' from Dsslee.
OMAHA, Jan. 11 To th Editor of Th
Bee: Allow me to make a suggestion oa
th question of annexation. The dtlsens
of Omaha and surrounding cities and
villages each hare a right to their views.
but this constant discussion with con
siderable feeling throughout these years
Is not bringing about results, which
should he sought by all fair cltixena.
W have, a I understand It, a law
hlch permits the annexation of cities
and surroi'dlng cities and villages by
th vote and consent of each that la, the
m arris Kg of the two municipalities is with
th consent of each, and there is no
force- permissible and citizens generally
are opposed to fore or any "force bill"
which Joins municipalities without the
consent of both.
If, as some say, the financial conditions
of the city of South Omaha an bad, and
the financial condition of Florence also
in poor shape, I cannot see why at pres
ent Omaha dtlsens would wish to add to
their burdens th burdens of those two
cltlea I could s why they, If those con
ditions are true, should dnslr to be re
lieved of them ana have them placed on
the city of Omaha.
Th proper way to approach this whole
matter is to wait until U1A, th sitting of
th legislature preceding th next census
year, when there will be an argument for
annexation which does not now exist,
that Is, the argument of -population that
it would give Omaha. And in th mean
time, those favoring annexation, who are
mostly In Omaha, and for the purpose of
showing aa increased population, should
be friendly with tlie adjoining cities and
villages and adopt th system of educa
tion and kindness rather than that of an
tagonism and force against which all
people, especially In this country, rebel.

BENNINGTON. Neb., Jan. 14.-To th
Editor of The Bee: As an interested
reader of The Bee's "Letter Box," please
permit ma space for a few remarks. I
think th writer ot a few articles, which
appeared recently over th signature of
J. F. Waybrlght, has mad himself a fin
example of th saying, "fools rush In
where angels fear to tread." A sens of
fairness. If not of common decency, re
quire that if accusations are made, at
least an attempt to prove them should
also b made. "J. F." evidently ' pos
sesses neither of these.
But not only does he not ven attempt
to prov any of his awful accusations
against Germany, but if he would have
paid th least attention to current re
ports, he might easily have seen that
many of his assertions, Intended against
Germany, fit exactly th case of his
allies. I think Mr. George Go win. In an
article published her January 5 haa '
really very ably answer! "J. Fs."
clumsy vituperations. But let me nevertheless-
call attention to the following
glaring contradictions, "Germany
searched the world In vain for an ally."
(by J. F. Weybright, January 6th;)
but not even any unofficial report Is
cited by him in proof of this assertion, '
en th ether band, the dally newspaper
reports show th opposite to be true.
England, trembling lest she yet b
whipped with th whole pack of her
allies. Is working frantically to Indue
Portugal or Greece or Boumania or Bul
garia or the United States to help her. '

ages of her colonies In to fight her war,

even Germany's enemies cannot but

her, all eager to fight for their country,
ready to conquer or to die. On the other
ban. . Austrian officers , at Prsemysl
repeatedly stated, that the Russian
hordes wer literally driven forward by
th knout, and In England a recent
speaker practically admitted, that her
"young unmarried men could neither
he driven nor coaxed to tight for their
country." The case was most fittingly
stated by Mr. George Gowln thus: "Ger
many will fight to the last German, Eng
land will right to the last ally." I want
to congratulate Mr. Gowln on his eniln
enty fitting statement.
Mr. Weybright is also wrong when he
calls the Turks "the most barbarous and
degraded nation." If only somewhat
conversant with recent history, he might
easily have seen, that the Turks never
committed such acts of barbarism and
atrocity as the English in India and
South Africa, and as for. bis admiration
Of Japan's civilisation, I hope he does
hot intend for Americans to imitate to
much of It. for Instance General Nogi'a
example of disemboweling his wife and
himself in honor of the dead emperor
Finally, In regard to the statement:
'The moral sentiment of the world is
against Germany," let me suggest, that
Mr. Weybright verbally means "The New
York World "; anyhow, his statement is
quoted verbally from a recent New York
newspaper containing an article which la
probably the dirtiest piece of Journalism,
that ever soiled a dally, virtually calling
on the nearly ten millions ot Germans
in this country to turn traitor against
their fatberlsnd and help to make It a
I do not believe, like Mr. Blessing
suggests, that Mr. Weybright Is of Ger
