Blockade Knnning Now the- Order.
The order of the British imperial council,
signed by King Oeorge and promulgated in his
tnine, means tbe cutting off as fsr as possible
of all (ierman commerce. The German sub
marine campaign has a similar effect on Britisli
rommerce, and ships now entering or leaving
c nemy ports must dodge patrols above and below
the surface of the water. It Is the avowed ob
ject of each of the bellgerenls to isolate tho
other from the world, and to cut off all supplies
for the population, In or out of the army.
War Is stern, and Its realities are terrible.
We will now see all the horrors that have been
told of slaughter by machinery augmented by
the efforts of Ihe lielllnerents to starve noncom
btUantx. Tor that Is what the situation amounts'
to; women and children, and the old men and
the disabled, are to be made to feel the pangs of
hunger, while the armies strive In the field on
steadily shortening rations.
Tbe protests or the United Stales, In the
t ame of all neutral governments, have been un
availing to serure modification of the belliger
ents' attitude. It looks as if the neutrals not
willing to become Involved In the war, can only
let traffic between the enemy ports and neutrai
ports fall into the condition of blockade running,
with such reprisals as conditions may permit.
The "Buy Omaha-made-goods" campaign,
which has born inaugurated co-operatively by a
group of our enterprising manufacturers, should
have the cordial support of every one who is ln
tereHted in the growth and prosperity of Omaha,
and that means every one who lives in Omaha.
Omaha wants more manufactories, but more
especially wants the factories It already has to
be so completely successful as to warrant steady
expansion and enlargement. The home product
should have the homo market preference, not
only to build up the home factory, but also to
keep home wage-earners employed who, In
turn, are the customers for everything sold and
consumed here. i
Above all. those who have Joined in the move
ment to push Omaha-made goods by making
them more widely known, are engaged in a pub
licity campaign of which Omaha as & whole will
share the benefits and will therefore be helping
Itself by helping It along.
The Politic of It.
The Lincoln 8tar at last sees the point of the
threatening political machine which would be
created by the extension of our water works
Into the lighting business without limitation to
the political activities of Its managers and em
ployes, says the Star, while conceding that it is
Omaha's business so far as establishing an elec
tric lighting plant is concerned, "but when it
conies to building up an arrogant political ma
chine that dictates party nominations, city,
county and state, (or two political parties, it is
everybody's business, and therefore the legisla
ture's business." . . ' . i .
The most serious complaint against the pri
vate public service corporations haa always been
their attempted control of politics, and interfer
ence In local government, and laws have been
enacted to stop this Intrusion. Yet simply ex
changing political' masters would be no Improve
ment.., Whether the legislature passes the water
hoard lighting bill or not, it ought to write it
into law that no one shall hold a salaried posjtlon
under the Water board while Running for of
fice or be eligible for re-employment for at least
a year afterwards. -
State Bights and the National Gnard.
All the sainted dead of democracy must have
shuddered In their shrouds as Governor John H.
Morehead of the sovereign state of Nebraska
perused, the note) from Lindley M. Garrison,
secretary of war tn the cabinet of President Wil
son, tantamount to an order that the governor
have his legislature get busy without any further
delay and pass such appropriation for support of
the Nebraska National guard as will meet the Ap
proval of the secretary of war.
, Regardless of the wisdom or foolishness of
Nebraska's legislative action, by what right
does a member of the cabinet of a democratic
president undertake to invade either the legisla
tive or executive function of a sovereign state,
even to give advice T In Indiana only a few days
ago, the legislature repudiated a state-wide
primary law as a rebuke to Secretary Brayan for
his meddling in purely state matters, but that
example seems to have been lost on Becretary
Garrison. , -
On what evil days have the Jetfersoulan
traditions fallen! It looks as if the corner stone
of the democratic temple were finally to descend
o the state of being innocuously used as a mere
hitching block for the democratic donkey.
, Hindsight at a Factor in Reform.
The unfortunate predicament of the habit
ual drug-users Is an example of one effect of
much of the reform thatja achieved by hysteria.
No one-will question the wisdom of the move for
the abolition of the dope traffic. Its wiping out
will prove one of the best things ever done In
this country, and the effort to that end haa th)
bupport of all right thinking people. But the
failure to provide tor the proper treatment of the
victims of that traffic is characteristic of the
short-sighted methods too frequently adopted in
the bringing about of reforms. It is not enough
to say that the way to auppress an evil is to
suppress It. Msny factors of utmost lmportauce
enter Into the problem, and should be given
full weight In determining any plan tor dealiug
with It. The present experience should serve to
exact more careful consideration of details la
the next hiove to abolish any similarly deep
rooted practice to which society objects.

Ireland and the Irish
IT ZUIH BtTBBAJLD.
IRELAND Is about the slie of the state of Indiana.
It has five million Inhsbltants. Once It had eight,
and, when one thinks of absentee, landlordism, we
wonder why the other five, millions did not go, too.
The "Emerald Isle" Is very beautiful. The winds
Mow In from the sea and supply a humidity that
makes the fiowers blossom and the plants grow.
In Ireland the pasture lands and meadow land,
blossom-decked snd water-fed, crossed and recrossed
by never-ending hedge-rows that stretch away and
lose themselves In misty nothlnifrness. are fair as a
Birds carol In the hawthorne's snd yellow furie all
day long, and the fragrant summer wlnda that blow
lailly across the fields are laden with the perfumes
The Irish love the land of their fathers with a
child-like love. Their hearts are hound up in sweet
inomorl's, rooted by song and legend In nooks and
curious corners, so the tendrils of affection hold them
Whenever an Irish family embarks for the New
World part of the five million Inhabitants go down to
the waterside to see them off.
Not long sgo I stood on the dork at Quoenstown
watching two fine lads walk up the gang-plank of the
steamship, clad In corduroy, each carrying a big, red
handkerchief containing his worldly goods.
And the next day I kept thinking of those two fine
young men, and t thought of the wonderful careers of
many Just such Irish boys as these!
The boys had health, strength, ambition. They
were receptive, eager, csrnest. And yet there wss
something rolllcksoine about them, after all.
Doubtless they could dance and sing; and I knew
perfectly well. If necessary, they could fight, and
perhas they could fight when it was not necessary.
When the two boys with their big handkerchiefs
arrive In America they will get Jobs; they will work
hard and faithfully; they will carry big burdens, anil
out of the work they will get a deal of laughter.
And If a pivotal point comes where the average
rt)an lays down and quits, these boys win work on
Into the night and show the grit of the Irish race.
They will become foremen, suiwrlntendents, owner.
Such has been the typical career or hundreds of
Irishmen In America.
Think of John B. McDonald, who came to this
country with the peat mud on his bare feet, and who
built the New York subways an engineering Job that
had been declared by so-called engineers as Im
possible. And how about William O. McAdoo, John J. Ryan,
Morgan J. O'Brien. William R. Grace, Henry Ford,
James Fan-ell. senator O'Oorman and scores of other
big boys whose forebears were fed on spuds and
I tsn remember a time when the section men on the
railroads of America were all Irish, and we used to
sing: "Paddy on the railroad, fifty cents a day." But
we do not sing It now.
If you wsnt to find Paddy, Just look for him In the.
general offices. ,
The Irish possess Initiative, originality, energy.
They can plan, devise, build.
Take up your official rallmay guide and observe
the names of presidents and vice presidents, superin
tendents, general passenger agents, traffic managers,
and you can easily Imagine you are looking through
a Dublin telephone directory.
There were tjie Harahans, father and son, president
snd general superintendent of the Illinois Central
railway. And of the engineers and builder Just a
little- removed from the peat bog let us name Harrl
man, Flood, O'Brien, Larkln, Sullivan, Gary. Geary
Lanahan, Keneflck, Drlsooll, Mackey. ,
William T. Noonan, the railroad president. Is a
typical son of transplanted Irish parents; or take
Hannaford. president of the Northern PasTMc. These
represent the; secrnd crop of Milesians, men who do
things In a big and generous way; men who never
know they are whipped. And a man who never knows
lie Is licked never Is.
James J.' Hill is the supreme type. Mr. Hill re
tired from business twelve years ago-for one whote
day. He manages two transcontinental raailroads and
has a say la a dosen others. r
' Then we have Sir Thomaa Hhaughneasy; president
of the-wonderful Canadian Pacific railway, who was
once a switchman and has worked his way up, step by
step, until ho Is one of the best educated men In the
odd and head of the only railroad In the world span

George Bernard Shaw to make a dosen!

The willingness of the Irish people to dq away with
militarism Is apparent, for then "Irish confetti" and

We are told there are more Irishmen in New York

The Fiends f A eraosi llle.
OMAHA. March IS. To tha Editor of
The Bee: Nearly fifty years have elapsed
since the last nettle of the wnr of the
rebellion was fought, and so far as I am
concerned that war is over and has been
for many years and, with the bare ex
ception rf the rr en who were responsible
for the atrocities of southern prisons
Anderaonvllle In particular. I hold no
malice or 111 will whatever; can fraternise
with the ex-confedcrate soldier as a
frienii or brother, but aa one who suf
fi red and endured the tortures of south
ern prisons for more than eight months,
most of the time at Andersnnvirte, I csn
nct pass unnoticed the utterances of one
Dr. Charles W. Utiles before the Knife
and Fork club of Kansas City, wherein
he is crcolted with having said that "It
WSS hookworm A nil tint glarvallnn n- 111
rcatment that caused the death of I5.0K)
or the .000 union soldiers held at the
confederate prison at Andersonvllle dur
ing tho civil war." most remarkable
statement; and a man who wilt in the
Hffht of history and the mass of evidence
which lias been written and published
broadcast over this country, and the ad
verse experiences of men both living and
dead, give utterance to such erroneous
statement displays a gross Ignorance of
the facts or an utter disregard for the
troth: either should discredit him.
The commander at Andersonvllle wss
the heArtloss old fiend. General John
If. Winder, who was the willing tool of
his Vuipctiors In their harhamua nnlle. r
disabling by diseases and murdering by
starvation their helpless captives. He
was the cowardly son of the craven Gen
eral W. H. Minder. who fled with his
militia from the battle ot Bladensburg
and left defenseless the national capital
to be raptured and burned by the British
army In 1SH. It was the, son of this pol
troon, a soured, sniveling, white-haired
old renegade of the government that
educated him. who In August, ISM.
boasted that "he could point to more
killed and disabled Yankees at Anderson
vllle than General Lc fiort .1,1.
twenty of his best regiments In the field."
a-.. ii', iook at our s.m new graves
made In one month over In the cemetery
beyond the stockade; every one hsd a
dead Yankee soldier In It." Henri Wlrz
a Swiss doctor, was his equally cruel and
cowardly subordinate, who had direct
charge of the stockade.
History tells us that "Colonel p. T.
Chandler, a confederate miltary inspector
In Intrepid officer and a humane one, re
ported to the rtlchmond authorities early
in August. 14, that the horrors of the
prison were difficult to describe and. Us
condition a disgrace to civilisation." He
strongly recommended that General
Winder, In command of the post, should
be removed, and "the substitution in his
place of some one who united both mercy
and Judgment with somo feeling of
humanity and consideration for the wel
fare and comfort of the vast number of
unfortumiates placed under his control
some one at least who does not advocate
deliberately and in cold blood, the pro
priety of leaving them In their present
condition until their number has been
sufficiently reduced by flcath to mRke
tho present arrangement suffc for their
accommodation." This report, a fearful
Indictment, was sent by General Cooper,
the confederate inspector general, to the
confederate secretary or war, August
28, 18M, with the endorsement that the
condition of this prison wss a reproach
to the confederacy as a nation.
Looking a little further along in hist
ory we find that Dr. Joseph Jones, a
distinguished confederate surgeon ' of
Agosta. Oe... made a visit to the Ander
sonvllle stockade In the month of August,
1164. and In his report gives the following
statements: "in Juno there were 2Jl
in July 29,030 and In August K.S99 pris
oners confined In the stockade. No. shade
tree was left In the entire Inclosure.' The
stencil arising from this dense popula
tion crowded together here, performing
all the duUes of life was horrible in the
extreme Tha accommodations for the,
sick were so defective, and the condi
tion of tho others so pitiable that from.
February" 24 to August SI 9,179 died, or
nearly one-third of the entire number In
the stockade. There were near 6.000
prisoners seriously 111. and the deaths
exceeded IO per day. Large numbers
were, walking about who were not re
ported sick, who were suffering from
severe and Incurable diarrhoea and
scurvy. 1 visited . 2.000 sick-only- one
medical officer was In attendance whereas
at least twenty should have been em
ployed. From tbe crowded condition, bad
diet, unbearable filth, dejected appear
ance of the prisoners, their systems had
become so disordered that the slightest
abrasion of the akin, from heat of the
un or even' a mosquito bite, they took
on rapid ana " frightful ulceration and
gangrene. The sick were lying upon the
bare floors of open sheds, without even
straw to rest upon. These haggard, de
jected, living skeletons, crying for
medical aid and food;, and the ghastly
corpses with glased eyeballs. , staring up
Into vacant space, with flies swarming
down their open,, mouths and over their
rags Infested wlta swarms of lice and
maggots, as they lay among the sick and
dying formed a picture of helpless,
hopeless misery. Impossible for words to
portray. Millions of fli;s swarmed over
everything and covered the faces of the
sick - patients, and crowded down their
open mouths, .depositing their maggots
m-the gangreaous' wounda of the living
end In the ruputha of the dead. These
abuses were due to the ' total absence of
any-system or sanitary regulations.''
Be It said, to their credit, that the name
Andersonvllle la a stench In the nostrils
of the good people of the south; so much
so that the name does not appear on their
maps; the name baling been Changed to
Anderson. The "vUle" has been dropped
tn 'order, I suppose, to better disguise
the spot that haa become a synonym of
more fiendish barbarity.' and cold
blooded cowardly cruelty than was ever
before perpetrated by a man or nicii pro
fessing civillsatloa. flxty miles south of
Macon, and a half-mile east of what
la now known as Anderron, lies the spot
of ground, whose eaady slopes, fifty
years ago. bote on tholr scorched sides
more of human misery, despair and
death in its moat rruel fnrma than- ever
before la the world's history polluted so
small a space of toe earth' a 'surface.
Yet, after the lapse of fifty years, while
there are men t:ll living who suffered
and endured these inhumanities there
comes along one Dr. utiles, who says
It' was' hookworm," and not starvation
r 111 treatment "that caused the death of

a parallel case of "hookworm," as he Is
