January Record of Foreign Trade.
While the January record of exports and
Imports show a trade balance for the month In
favor of the I'nlted States, the figures have
some significance that may escape attention un
less closely analysed. On the surface, It would
seem to indicate an enormous growth, but un
derneath it shows an unhealthy condition.
While the sales from the I'nlted States to
Europe have enormously Increased, the trade
with the South American countries, from which
so much has been expected, Is less than It was
a year ago. This must mean either that the
South Americans are buying less, or that our
hastily organized campaign to capture that busi
ness has not produced the results hoped for.
An immense outpouring of foodstuffs and
other army supplies has brought the total vol
ume of exports well up. to the normal figure.
Tke United Kingdom has been the most liberal
purchaser, exports to the English ports having
Increased more than $39,600,000, or well over
CO per cent above January of last year. Others
of the allies have bought liberally from us, but
the greatest falling off in Imports has been from
England and France. It is worthy of note that
our receipts In January of goods from Germany
was less than 25 per cent under the figures of
a year ago, but our shipments to Germany had
fallen more than 80 per cent.
Trade currents of the world are still greatly
disturbed by the unnatural circumstances. The
balance In favor of the United States Is a natural
outcome of the abnormal requirements of
Europe for war materials, nd so rests on a
ery unstable foundation.
Russia'! Age-Long Dream.
From the springboard of necessity Great
Britain has executed a somersault In a national
policy that has been the rule of action for over
Ever since Britannia achieved supremacy on
the seas British opposition to Russian ambitions
have been consistent and persistent. One of the
great ambitions of the Romanoff dynasty has
been, and la today, a warm-water port which
would afford a year round outlet for the hugo
resources of the empire and unchallenged free
dom In the commerce of the world. This has
been the unrealised dream of Russian monarchs
from Alexsnder I down to Czar Nicholas. To
this end Russia has bent Its energies, and for
which she has fought two fruitless wars. Every
time the dream approached realization effective
obstacles were placed on the besr's path, di
rectly or Indirectly, by Great Britain.
Thirty-seven years ago this month, with its
victorious army at the back door of Constanti
nople, Russia wrung from Turkey the treaty of
San Stefano, which not only guaranteed free
navigation from the Black sea to the Mediter
ranean, but stripped the Ottoman empire of
more territory than the Balkan states won In
the recent wsr. Great Britain objected to the
terms of the treaty and sent a fleet of warships
Into the sea of Marmora to defend Constantino
ple for the Turks and to Impress upon Russia
the advisability of disgorging. Austria sided
with the British. Russia was impressed. The
outcome was the congress of Berlin whk'h
robbed Russia of the fruits of victory.
With the gates of the Dardanelles closed,
Russia turned to the far east and sought an out
let to the aa through Manchuria and Port
Arthur. Japan blocked that movement In the
war of 1904-5, and Great Britain furnished most
of the financial blocks with which the trick was
A few years ago the Russian dream nil raged
the Persian gulf as a haven of relief. At once
the machinery of peaceful conquest were set In
motion and their revolutions soon brought Brit
ish intriguers to the field, resulting in thi
clvlslon of Persia into two spheres of Influence,
Great Britain holding the southern half an
Russia the tldeless northern end.
Now the anlmoelties and rivalries of a cen
tury are buried In the trenches of war. British
and Russian armies are fighting In a common
cause. The three allies must stand together to
win. It one retires the others are lost. In
such a crisis Orest Britain could do no less than
sanction Russia's age-long ambition for free nav
Igation to and from the Black sea, and the guus
of the allied fleet are giving practical force to
an understanding which links Russia to what
ever the fates have In store . for the Triple
Dakota lawmakers have adjourned and gone
to their several homes for an Indefinite rest.

"Through the dark, anowles winter night the
guests walked over to a nearby house. Here wa a
darkened room containing about forty chairs; back
of them a propectlng machine with electric wlreo;
In front a large sheet fastened to the wall. A long
series of pictures appeared one by one on the sheet.
The first were completely Incomprehensible to me.
Only after awhile the apoken word taught me to
understand, and I began to realize with great aua
pense that thla was a new. Important matter, helpful
In warfare. Repeatedly the kalaer Interjected pointed
quest Ions, and these the lecturer answered. The
lecture lasted until after midnight.
"After the last picture the light flared up. The

"Afterward followed a ride with the kaiser In hi

he said: 'That la not dangerou. What Uerman aai

OMAHA. March 6 To the Editor ot
The Ree: All patriotic Americans hone
and pray that the European war may
soon be ended and that our nation may
not be nrawn Into the conflict through
the violation of ncutrslity nor the reck
less disregard of our rights under Inter
national law and custom.
It appears thst the main cause of the
war was the struggle for commercial su
premscy When such a motive is not
haeed upon fair competition and merit, it
is selfish snd sure to result in trouble.
The fair and Just rule of "live and let
live" is not the gul'iing principle In the
foreign or domestic commcr-lal relations
of the world. Although recognized as the
right snd desirable rule of conduct. It is
ruthlessly brushed salde In tho mad rush
lor wealth and power.
It was not Intended that one man. nor
combination of men, nor nation, nor
group of nations, should control or he
master of the channels of commerce, and
permanent peace the hope and wish of
all Just men will not be realized and
assured until the sea shall he free for all
The appalling spectacle of Christian na
tiona at one another's throats la dis
couraging to the peace advocates, to say
the least, and It causca one to eusph-lon
that modern civilization Is only a veneer
coveting all the essence of the barbaric
ages. The struggle Is Intensified by the
low snd bsse passion of Jealousy, re
venge and aggreialon.
It Is a noble act to defend your home
and native land, and battle for the free
dom of the oppressed. This patriotic Im
pulse has rallied to all the standards of
the various armies the men that bear the
brunt of all wars, the common people,
and the blame for the crime of the
Twentieth century, If placed at all, should
rest on the heads of the rulers snd offi
cials In whose care reposed the peace end
prosperity of their subjects.
The cost of the folly must be paid. In
a large measure, by future generations.
There Is one ray of hope, however, shin
ing through the cloud of deapalr, thst
the masses of all the nations may
eventually be freed and given an oppor
tunity for a broader snd happier life
through universal peace and brotherhood.
This, the greatest of all wsrs, may hasten
the realization of that Utopia.

OMAHA. March 6. To the Editor of
The Bee: The bill providing for a mu
nicipal court for Omaha and South
Omaha, will no doubt soon become a law.
As this Is to be s court of much Im
portance to the lawyer and litigants of
Omaha, the Judge to be appointed to
preside over them should be men of
known honesty snd ability. As the main
purposes of the bill are of two-fold na
ture, one to relieve the congested condi
tion of the county court, the other to
relieve a long suffering public from the
Injustices suffered at the hands of in
competent justices of the peace, grasp
ing for fees, and their co-partnership
with collection agencies and whose rul
ings and decision are but a travesty on
Justice. To this rule we hsve s few ex
ceptions, one in particular, thst most
every practicing attorney in Omaha will
concede, is now on the Justice bench, and
his name Is C. W. Brltt. During the
three yeara he has filled this position
he has earned, snd la given credit for
bleng one of the most capable, honeat
and Impartial men that ever discharged
the duties of that office In Douglas
county. In his appointment the governor
would not only reflect credit upon him
self, but upon the bar ot Douglas county.

OMAHA. March . To the Editor of
The Bee: A local newspaper is making
a lot of noise over the fact that the ad
dreesograph of the Commercial club wa
permitted to be used by the electric light
company for sending out It arguments
In opposition to the bill In the legislature.
It seem to me that this is a tempest
In a teapot. Everybody knows that the
manager of the water works haa been
using the official addressograph of the
Water board, and a portion of the time
of a number of clerks on the public pay
roll, for sending out campaign literature
boosting the work of the Wster board
and advocating municipal ownership for
purely political purpoaes.
In view of the foregoing, It seems to
me that the manager of the Water board
la the taat man In town free to make a
rumpua over the action of the Commercial
club management In this esse.

that the Postofflce department Is short

In sackcloth and Hi sshrs.
Away sway to wooded lake!
Dost hear the love bird calling
Where laughing pussy willows shake
And early buds are falling?
Hid in the trees, King Pan, the gay
His harp of life Is strumming
A march triumphant. Clear the way!
Another spring Is coming!
