Fleia Spoken and to the Point
The protest prepared by President Wilson
and transmitted by Secretary Bryan demanding
of the Oermaa government scrupulous respect
of non-eombantant lives and property on the
bUb. seas Is plaln-epokeu and to the point, and
unquestionably voices the sentiment of the
great majority of the American people.
The freedom of the document from obscure
diplomatic phraseology, and Its prompt publica
tion in our own press almost simultaneously
with presentation to Berlin, Indicates that It
is intended as much for the sovereign American
eltlsen as for the sovereign of Germany.
In the one paramount proposition It Is clear
cut, namely, that the United States will not
recognise or acquiesce In violation by any of
the warring nations of Europe of the lights
accorded by international law t6 our dtlMns
voyaging the seas either la neutral ships or la
unarmed merchantmen flying a belligerent flag.
This protest Is broader than all possible
claims for reparation for destroyed Uvea of
Americans It embraces all eitisena of neutral
countries and all non-oombatanta of belligerent
countries aa well. It Is a demand for observ
ance of an established principle ot I n tarna
tion al law, with notice that It disregard must
forfeit the benefits of that coda.
In view of Its constant effort to maintain
friendly relations with this country and smllst
our moral support, we may be sure the Oermaa
government, will to use a colloquialism it
up and take notice, and make aa effort, not
only to give us a satisfactory answer, but also
to stop the unjustifiable practices to which we
These Be Real Heroes,
Alongside the wanderings of Ulysses and
bis companions will be placed the exploits of
Lieutenant von Muecke and bis little band of
fifty sailors from the Emden. who have Just
turned up at Damascus. Six months ago the
Emden was overhauled and sunk by an Aus
tralian cruiser at an islaad in tha Indian oeean,
and a flninh was put to the spectacular career
of that dashing sea raider. A landing party, en
gaged on business ashore, eluded the fate that
overtook the rest of the ship's company, aad put
to sea la a commandeered boat. Now and then
some word has been had of their presence la
some out-of-the-way corner, but always have
their eyes been turned toward the Fatherland,
and their efforts bent at reaching back to where
they can be ot service to their country. What
adventures they have had, what difficulties they
have overcome, may never be known, for It
isn't like men of that stamp to tell much of
what they have done or how they did It. But they
have won the Iron cross with credit, and some
modern Homer may find in their story the foun
dation for another 6dyssey. The company that
sailed oa the Emden was made up of gallant
fighting men, and Lieutenant von Muecke and
bis fifty were not the least of the lot.
, Put on the Brakes.
The presence la tha police court ot a con
siderable number of motorists shows that all the
drivers are not giving to their position, the care
it should receive, Omaha ought to be a veritable
paradise to the motorist, Its broad paved streets
offering Ideal conditions for driving. Unfortu
nately, too, these same tine streets preseat aa
ever present temptation to "speed up," and from
time to time some thoughtless motorist allows
his car to get away from the speed regulations.
Other matters are also overlooked, and as
reault the careful drivers, who are la the big
majority, suffer because of the carelessness ot
the minority. It Is to the Interest of all that
proper attention be given to the management of
the huge cars that dart around the streets, es
pecially after nightfall; and this care should be
extended to the boulevards and the paved roads
leading out Into the country. A number of acci
dents have been noted lately that might easily
have beea avoided had the driver observed
strictly the rules ot the road and given consider
ation to the rights of others. "Safety first" Is a
mighty good rule for the auto driver, and Its ob
servance will not detract In the least from the
Joys ot motoring.
The movement among the republicans ot
Nebraska to organise for the campaign of 191
Is gathering torce. and with the Interest ot the
party aroused will bring , back ' victory to the
party's banner. This time is most appropriate,
tor a reunion of the factions and an end to the
bickering that has divided the party and made
it possible for the democrats to seise the power.
The prosperity of the state and the nation is
safe la the hands ot the republicans; democratio
ascendancy has always meant trouble, extrava
gance and maladministration. The republicans
have made good oa their promises In Nebraska.
The most salutary laws on the statute books, for
the regulation ot corporations, for the protec
tion of the eitisena, and for the advancement ot
the people in all their activities were put there
by the republicans. The party can point to a
most notable record, that of having enacted Its
every platform promise Into law, and those laws
are now oa the statute book upheld by the
courts and la full operation.
Only factional differences have divided the
party aad given the democrats aa opportunity
to secure control ot the executive and legisla
tive branches of the government. It the repub
licans will get back to the advocacy of proper
principles and submerge personal grievances,
success for the party la Nebraska will be
