that Germany will be held to strict accounta

of submarine attacks. If he doeshls, his further
course will depend on Germany's reply. Then
he must make his choice, to abide by the atti

Of this we may all be assured. Whatever

The Nebraska National Guard.
Adjutant General Hall points out very mod
estly the fact that the late legislature did not
make any lavish appropriation for the care an l
maintenance of tbe Nebraska National Guard.
Much of the service to be rendered by the offi
cers and men of that organization will be with
out pay, and at an actnal cost which must be
borhe by them privately, (This is wrong; and Is
one place in which Nebraska lags far behind
most of the states of the union.
The National Guard Is the training school
of our citizen soldiery, on whom, as expressed
by the president, the nation depends for its first
line soldiers, should, events require armed de
fense for the country. It was formed years ago
to replace, the archaic militia .organization, in
which service was supposed to be obligatory,
and which was our nearest approach to con
scription in time of peace. The basis of organ
ization has been reformed since the war with
Spain to place it on a more efficacious footing,
and it is now as nearly as possible a complement
of the small standing army. Young men who
serve in the Guard are moved by a spirit of
patriotism, as well as by a desire for military
glory. Its function la to prepare them for posui
Jb use la the field, and for this, if for no other,
reason the National Guard deserves better sup
port than it has bad.

When the Lnsitania Went Sown.
Following the loss of the i Titanic many
stories wee told of the scenes on board that
vessel, when It became known that death was
waiting fbr the major portion of the, ship's
company. These scenes were repeated on the
Lusltanla; for the matter of that, they are the
scenes that .have been enacted on the occasion of
very great disaster . where twentieth century
man has been concerned. Gallant efforts to save
the weak are put forth and the women and chi'
drea are given all , assistance, while the men
calmly face the pert. This action Is character
istic of the race, and has come to be expected as
a matter of course. Any other conduct underpin
circumstances would be astonishing. This qual
ity of moral as" well as physical courage is In
dicative of the sturdy manhood that has done
so much to make the world a good place to
live In. j f

Japan at a Peace-Maker. 1
With the rolling back of that little portion
of the war cloud that hovered over China, the
attitude of the mikado's government shows lu
singular contrast to the course it has actually
pursued. The final retention by Japan of that
portion of Chinese territory which was seized
from the Germans Is held' to be the basis for
permanent peace, but the disposition of th's
point la left for future settlement. When it does
come up, the whole question of the territorial
Integrity of China may be opened.
, If this should result, as an outcome of the
Japanese claims, then an effort will likely be
made to determine by what right England,
France and RubsU are also permitted to seise
and occupy sections of Chinese territory, if the
recession of the Sbang Tung province la requited
from Japan, 'why should not the European na
tions likewise be required 4to give over the sec
tions they hold by virtue of treaties exacted
under show of actual force? The treatment of
China Is one chapter in the history of clvillis
tlon that Is not especially to the credit of. the
great nations of the world. (
If a revision of existing treaties should even
tually follow the action of Japan, a fact that
can scarcely be determined until the European
war haa reached the atage where the Interna
tional boundaries are to be fixed, perhaps It will
be found that the mikado haa done more for
the permanency of peace than now is shown 6c

Base Ball and Bonds.
it any oaa were asaea wnetner case ball or
bonda would excite the most popular interest In
Omaha, he would unquestionably Say "base.
ball." Yet we have the fact staring ua in tbe
face that out of some 19.600 votera participat
ing In our recent election only 1,000 failed to
mark their ballots on the bonds, while more
then 6,000 failed to mark them on Sunday base
ball. In other words, the vote on the bonds was
short only a little over & per cent of the total,
while the vote on Sunday base ball was short
nearly S3 per cent. But there Is another ex
planation In this the base ball proposition was
printed at the bottom of the regular ballot and
the bond propositions each on a separate ballot.
It may be safely said, therefore, that the failure
to vote on base ball was not Intentional, but ac
cidental, one out of three thinking he had fin
ished with putting his cross-marks opposite the
names of his preferred candidates. Let no oue
say that tbe form of the ballot, and the position,
of the different propositions upon it. may not
be the most important factor In a close election

fellow crtlxens of the calm, clear-ayed etateeman in

this moment. Is the welfare of Ms countrymen.
Two f oaraee Open.
- Chicago Tribune: The United Slatee and Oermany
have reached a point at which alternative courses ap
pear or thla nation's choice. One la to accept in fact,
with whatever protest In form, the new sea law which
Germanyyhas made and to adjuat ourselves to It. The
other la to decline to accept It, and. If Oermany will
not modify it, to tight to tbe beet of eur power. It
would be Ignoble to bluet er without Intent er means
to put force behind the tlireat or action behind the
talk. It would be Inhuman to persuade our cltlsens
that they had rights as enutrals and thus expose
them to dangera they might have avoided.
New York Times: From our Department of Btata
.there must, go to the Imperial government at Berlin
a demand' that the Germane ahall no longer make
war Ilka aavagea drunk with blood; that they shall
cease to seek the attainment of their ends by 4the
aasaaelnation of non-combatants and neutrals. In the
history of wars there la no alngle deed compare! le
In Its Inhumanity and Ita horror to the deatructlon,
without" warning, by German torpedoes of the great
ateamahtp Lusltanla. with more than I. aoula on
boa,rd. and among them more than 100 Americans.'
Our demand must be made, and It will be heeded, un
less Oermany In Its madness would have It understood
that It la -at war with the. whole civilised world.
X Time for Jlaarolam.
Bt. Louis Globe Democrat: But this is no time and
no occasion for Jingoism. Profoundly aa tha people of
thla country are Impressed by the horror of thla die.
aster, we realise that the .Lusltanla Is not another
Maine; that the attack waa not directed primarily
against us, but acalnat England, and that our gov
ernment should he depended upon to exact such
reparation as we may have the light to demand. The
pity of It la that no reparation will restore the Uvea
so ruthlessly, and, It aeerae to ua. ao needlessly de
Oae Wore Klta the Act.'
Philadelphia Public. Lodger: Only one word char
acterizes adequately . the policy of Germany1 In this
matter.' That word Is piracy. There la no shadow of
excuse for It In military necessity. All the submarines
in the German navy are not enough to cut Great
Britain off from sea-borne supplies. The number
of ships already sunk la a very small percentage of
the total of Brltieh commerce. Even, with the Lual-
tenia a total loss, there Is absolutely no Justification
for the attack.
lirrmss Prestige Riddled i
New York Sun: What military advantage waa
gained by such a procedure comparable to the moral
revulsion against Germany that It Is certain to pro
duce? Wars are not 'won by drowning neutrals or
non-rombatanta. We venture to aay that no alngle
act of thla conflict has so outraged American opinion
or so riddled German prestige In this country as the
deatructlon of the Lusitania. The Germans have sunk
the largest British ahlp In active mercantile service.
They have deatroyed a small quantity ef munltloia
of war, Tbey have evidently killed a large number-of
Americana and non-combatants. In the long run they
might better have loat a battle. The military gains
are trifling. The moral losaes are incalculable.

NEOLA. Ia.. May 10. -To the Editor of
The Bee: You give space to Pr. Ger
ard's rro-Oerntan artMe In the letter
box department of The Bee, but you
did not give the whole poem In full
which this German doctor criticises, and
aa It Is generally understood that the
contest at Harvard wa open to all stu
dents the pro-German contingent could
have written some poems as well tthst
la, if they had sufficient poetical talent
to write good poetry).
My reasons for 'calling your attention to
this matter of omitting to give the poem
that la In controversy - In full Is Just
this: Tne editorial column of news
papers are not read aa much as the hews,
column and such columns aa the ''Let
ter I;ox." etc.
Whether tightly or wrongly it is re
ported that while The Bee ia trying to be
fair, the Influence of pro-Oerman ad
vertisers la such that the official French
and English reports (not hearsay or newa
paper reports, but government reports)
of well proved German atrocities and
barbarisms are suppressed.
As a matter of fair play why not pub
lish the French paper showing quota
tiona from the diaries of dead and cap
tured Germans of atrocities In Belgium
and northern ' France these atrocities
and barbarlsma of the Germans have not
been denied. I think you owe this pub
licity to that large contingent of your
rtadera who are hostile to the Germans.

SIOUX CITY. Is-. May 10. -To the Edi
tor of The Bee: Reactionary Influences
have captured the ammunition of pro

the terms by which we have come to
know the controversial hosts of socialisa

radicalism Is applied to the age-worn
method of competition, we appland ita
advocates; While the true radical, ho who
preached combination and io-operatlon, la
erroneously dubbed the conservative.
A definition of chaoa is worshiped by
the advocates 'of "free and equal com

Wllhelm; and' every reactionary Influ
