The Sinking of the Frye.
The sinking of th Frye by a German com
nicrre destroyer Is by far the most serious In
cldent of the wr, so far as the Pnited States I
concerned. Little question can be made but that
the fact Is due to n excess of seal on part of
tbo captain of the Kltel Frcldrlch, and it is
hardly likely that this action will be upheld by
the ucrman government. That the Frye carrlel
a cargo of wheat, and had cleared for a DrltlKh
port, ran not by Itself Justify the course of the
German officer, unless the whole contention of
the German government with regards to forxi-
fcttiffs be abandoned. Germany has persistently
objected to the attitude of Great Britain on this
point, and the United Statea hns inslHted on the
right of traffic between unblockaded ports for
all noncontraband cargoes.
The disavowal by the German government, of
the actg of Captain Thlerichens will doubtless be
forthcoming as soon as the facts aro understood
in Berlin, and the episode will be remembered
only as one of the unpleasantly annoying oc
currences of the war. In its general aspects, the
case resembles, much the Mason and sltdell In
cident of the civil wsr, out of which we backed
as quickly and as gracefully as possible.
Union, Central and Southern Pacific Roads.
Testifying at San Francisco in the unmerger
suit against the Southern and Central Pacific
railroads, Julius Krutschnitt declared that the
Southern Pacific hsd been "coerced" by At
torney General Wlckersham Into selling the Cen
tral Pacific to the Union Pacific. But Mr. Wlck
ersham was Justified in the action he took in
this regard by all the facts in the rase. If any
Tart of the Ilarrlman merger constituted in it
self a restraint of trade. It was the union of the
Central and Southern Pacific lines, which gives
the latter almost absolute control of the rail
traffic to and from the Pacific coast. Harri
man's merger was to carry out the original
Huntington plan, conceived and partly executed
when the Southern Pacific was built.
The order to sell the Central to the Union
Pacific was Intended in conformity with the de
sign of congress in giving government aid to th
Pacific railroads, that one continuous transconti
nental line might be built and operated under
one management, reaching from the Missouri
river to the Golden Gate. This would have been
brought about under the Wlckersham order, had
it not been for the cunning interference of the
California railroad board; the failure of that
union of connecting lines has made possible the
tontlnuance of a situation that Is not favorable
to California, or to any part of the region served
by the roads In question. If the idea of tha
Callfornlans prevail, and the Central Pacific be
operated as an Independent line, it will be to
the advantage of the northern and southern
routes, and means the diversion of much traffic
iiom tbe port of San Francisco.
Omaha is deeply concerned in this matter,
for it is the eastern terminal of what should be
tbe greatest of all the transcontinentar railways.
Had It not been for the pernicious meddling of
the California board, presumably instigated by
the Southern Pacific, this great system would
now be in full operation. Aa It Is, danger exists
cf the Central Pacific lapsing agaln into the phy
slcal decay in which Harrlman found it fifteen
years ago. when the Huntington crowd were let
ting the Hue from San Francisco to Ogden go to
pieces in favor of the Southern Pacific.
Carranza ja Coldly Courteous.
The personal note sent by Venustiano Car
ranza to President Wilson, called forth by the
notice sent from the State department demand
ing better treatment for foreigners In those por
tions of Mexico tinder the control of "the first
thief." is couched in terms of dignified courtesy
that scarcely conceals the hot resentment of tbe
Mexican leader. Nor doe it -iv ..ti.f..
tory assurance that the rights of foreigners will
be any more carefully regarded than has been
the practice there of late. Obregon Is warmly
defended by his chief, while Villa, truculent as
usual, announce, his determination to Join with
Carransa to battle against invasion. It is quite
apparent that none of the Mexican bandits is in
clined to give over the brigandage carried on
under the name of war. and that the situation In
Mexico Is unimproved by the latest of American

IltEARH Thomna A. Walaon tell the story of the
hlrth of thi tplri'hon twlr a story, however,
that warrants tolling and retelling heaus It
goes Into the Intimate life history of an eiwif h-makin

actors. Without any fine oratory Mr. Watn Is fa.--clnatlns

the crude telephone Instruments with whl' h Prof. Hell
performed his experiments, and there la an add"d
charm In the outcropping of a vein of dry humor serv.
Ing to lighten a weighty subject.
It goes without saying that no one else can ever
experience the peculiar f. eling of exultation tha; must
have come over Trof. Hell at one end of the wire and
"that boy Watson" at the other when they first real
ised that they had succeeded In conveying audible
sound by electricity coursing through a wire perhaps
fifty yards long. By comparison tho repetition of the
conversation with scenery carefully set and with In
struments certain to work, although 1.600 miles apart,
marking the first direct transmission of the voice
serosa the continent, must have been tame and devoid
of excitement. The ocean-to-oceian long distance phone
proves that the electrical conveyance of sound has no
length limits except those conditioned by Imperfect
To be told that the telephone has leen In operation
less than forty years recalls that Omaha was amo i
the first cities to lie tclephonlcally equipped. Over in
President Yost's office there hangs on the wall a fac
simile of th first telephone directory for Omaha,
which Is dated July 10. 1879, and Is about the slw of
a small handbill printed on one side. It contains the
names of all the subscribers, the epitome of the pro
greaalvo citizenship of the town at that tlie"', and in
the list both the office of The Bee and the residence of
Ita editor. 1 have one of the early directories goins
back almost as fsr. The "dlrectiona for use" printed
In these old directories, as follows, make Mr. Wat
son's account of the first telephone Instruments an1
their operation more vivid:
"L Always hang the telephone on Its hook, as
your circuit cannot be used by others until the
telephone Is so hung.
"2. Never touch the Instrument when the bell
hammer stands away from the bell, as that Indl-
catea that tho line is In use.
"J. To signal, press the button on the right of
the bell.
"4 To communicate with the central office, sig
nal two bells, wait for their response, after which
remove the telephone from Its hook, and be care
ful to push tho hook to the left; and then, holding
the telephone firmly to the ear, you will hear the
voice of the operator at the central office. If you
hear nothing, turn the switch to the right and call,
as It may be aomeone on your own circuit.
"5. To converae with stations on your own cir
cuit: Hgnal slowly the number of the station you
desire to converae with. After receiving their re
sponse, sound your own signal, that they may know
who Is to talk with them.
". To converse with stations not on your own
circuit: Notify the central office with whom you
wish to be placed In communication, first giving
your own name; then hang your telephone on Its
hook, and as soon as tho desired connection Is made
the operator at the central office will tap your belt
once ss the signal to go ahead, and prompt atten
tion to these slgnala is desired to aave waiting on
the part of either party.
"7. Bpeak clearly and distinctly, with your lips
gently touching the telephone.
"8. When your signal la sounded always answer
by repeating It. then you will hear the station call
ing, sound their signal, that you may know with
whom you are to talk.
". Subscribers will please to limit their use of
the telephone to three mlnutea In succession, as
others may wish to tise the circuit."
In the Wataon narrative he told of the difficulties
encountered In devising a method of signaling to ie.t
people know when someone wanted them to respond
on the phone and relieve the original necessity of
keeping th receiver constantly at the ear. He did
this by call bell system, which mesnt that every
phone on the circuit rang every time thst a"hy one of
them did, and he had hitched up twenty to forty
phones on a circuit, with the result that whole neigh,
borhoods were kept awake by the Incessant ringing.
My recollection Is that five or, six phones on a circuit
was a maximum here tn Omaha, each being numbered
and operated with a corresponding signal with short
taps of the bell. When the phone rang, if, for example,
we were No. 8, we had to Ilaten untu more than throe
taps sounded to make sure that the call was not for
us. The only advantage of these old-fashioned four
and line phones wss that they enabled all
the connected houses to break In on th same con
versation and listen and talk back and forth as if it
were a family gathering.
I never think of the telephone without harking
hack to the dreadful night ot our Omaha tornado, and
the merciful service rendered by the telephone In that
emergency. The Atlantic Moothly not long ago con
tained a short essay depicting th switchboard story
of tha great Iroquois theater fire how the flash of
th lights snd the quick messages from homes to hos
pitals and morgues, to doctors and nurses, and po
licemen and firemen, wrote the story In biasing lines
before the eyes of the operators. The same word
plctur could have been patntvd using the switch
board experience of our Omaha storm for material.
When I referred recently In this column 40 an "ex
position of manufactures" which I had seen et up In
a big department atore In Baltimore, In which the
processes of making the goods oti sal there were Mim
trsted by live exhibits. I had no Idea than an exposi
tion of Omaha-mad good wa being- planned along
similar lines hy on of our wm big department stores.
1 looked through thla exposition at the Burges-Nah
cstabtlahment and was very favorably Impreaaed by
It. Huch aa enterprise is especially calculated to open
our eyes to the number snd variety of things we us
mat are oeing made right her among us. It eniphu
alse. too. the vaat good that may be accomplished
by a patronlze-home-lndustry campaign. By compuii
son with tbe exposition I had seen in the eadt the one
here is perhaps more an exhibit of home products
than of home production, but It will well bear repeat
ing and suggest poaaibUltlea for a widened scop
which ampler time for designing and preparation
would easily Insure.

RKNMNGTON. Neb.. March ll.-To
the EWItor of The tlee: Ir. Woofter hai
revealed himself to lie a "Bryan crltl

diloquent Myle aa all Bryan rtitlciaers do.
In other words, he holds that Just he
ii;se our present secretary of state Is
a 'peace advocate," It Is Mis duty to
Muell the uprising which occur over the
entire world. However, I ask you to
permit me to inform Mr. Wooster ot a
few of tho many essentials thst an av
erage American cltlxen constantly benrs
In mind:
1. Kvcry knock at Bryan's reputation
Is a booFt for him. for we know that he
would not be In charge of American af
fair If he were lacking in qualifications
for same. (If he doe not have enough
manly pride about himself to reslttn, why
doesn't Mr. Wilson propose his resignation?)
I. A man's manly pi iGe Is not dis
played by shirking from his duty the
first time he Is needed (aa Mr. Wooster
advocates Mr. Bryan should have done
In the Insignificant Mexican affair, and
probably as Mr. Wooster would have
done had he been In Mr. Bryan's place,
in order that he could show his super
abundant supply of manly pride).
3. K volution decrees thst only I he fit
test shall survive. Mr. Bryan's career
speaks for itself. (Three times nominated
for president nnd three times was he
defeated. Now secretary of state.)
4. A treaty is good only as lung as it
Issts, and Mr. Wooster need not fear
that the treaty made between 1'nlted
State and England, France and Russia
is going to act ss a preventive of our
entering hostilities with the previously
mentioned European nations, if such is
My friend from Silver Creek flatly op
poses the Idea of It being necessary to
send our fleet to Mexican waters. A safe
rule for this gentleman to bear In mind
is. not to condemn or tear down one
thing until he can recommend something
better to take Its place..

OMAHA. March ll.-To the Editor of
The Bee: The so-called "Public Welfare"
bill Is pending In the state senate. It
passed the house largely because It Is
applicable to Omaha only, and the heavy
Increase of taxation which it would im
pose upon property, of course, relates
only to Omaha property. The country
delegate in the senate is Kirrm.,i i
saying. "Well, if Omaha wants to fritter
sway ita money on bestitlful visionary
schemes of this nature let it go to it. It
does not cost the rest of the state any
thing." This public welfare bill I built
upon sentimentality. It Includes many
different subjects of legislation not con
templated by its title, and therefore it
would be void, under well known deci
sions of the supreme court. If enacted.
These various subjects, moreover, are
covered either by existing law or city
ordinance, or by other bills pending In
the legislature.
In conclusion, let me say that the chief
objection to thla bill lie In the fact that
It will pile up an enormous expenditure
which will be saddled upon the taxpayers
of Omaha to no good and sufficient pur
pose. I hope the men who would have
to "pay the freight." should this bill
succeed, may without delay telephone
and write the members of the Douglas
county delegation in the senate to atrangle I
! win in in committee.

A a Appeal for Jewish Rlahte.
hW lOHK Mrrh ,0-To th Kdtt'-
of The Bee: Permit me to address -you.
snd through you to yo tr readers, upon a
matter engrossing the attention of the
people or the world.
Nearly fiOO.OUO Jew, are fighting in th
rank, or the armies of th belligerent
nations, battling oh behalf of the coun
tries wher they have auffered and are
still suffering terrible injustice through
the deprivation of tho right accorded to
all other citlsen. While the husbands
and aons are on the firing line, the wives
ana aaugnter. the mother and sisters
sre t the merty of anti-Semites, who.
notwithstanding Jewish heroism and the
patrinio sacrifice of Jewish blood, aiv
inciting the populace against them. ThU
ia notably the case In Poland. It Is a
Pitiful stat of affair, one calling for
the Intervention of all justice and lib
erty loving men and women.
We. Jews, look to America, to the over
powering senee of rignteousness of the
American people, to espouse the cause
of the d.000.009 Innocent men. women and
children, driven and hunted for no
other reason than they cling to the faith
of their fathers.
The Question naturally arises: "What
can be done?"
Th Jewish Dally News has suggested
a plan for th calling of an American
Jewish conference for the purpose of
bringing to tha attenUon of the nation
the deplorable plight of the Jew of
Europe. This proposal liaa received the
nerty . endorsement of leading public
men and women.
We appeal to you to aid ua in thla
humanitarian work. America, thi coun
try that haa always opposed tyranny and
succored the oppressed, can play no
nobler part In thla terrible world's drama
than raise its mighty voice and demand
in the nam of all that 1 sacred that the
carnaae of unoffending human being
cease. ,
We ask you to help us, and the free, un
hampered pica of th United State can
best do so, to secur full eiual right for
