That Credit Merger Not a Eryan Idea.
About ten days ago The Bee adverted to a
plan ascribed to Mr. Bryan for a credit merger
of the Pan-American republics whereby the
money needed to devolop the resources of the
countries to the south of us might be raised by
tn exchange of United States bonds for their
eecurltles, bearing an interest rate of 1 per cent
more than ours, which would sink the principal
in forty-seven years. In originating this Idea,
characterised as "not only a daring, but a bril
liant, conception," the National City Bank cir
cular, which we quoted, hsd seen the possible
most noteworthy piece of ststesmanahlp con
tributed by Mr. Bryan to our national policy.
Evoked by our editorial, we have Just re
ceived from former Senator Jonathan Bourne,
jr., a pamphlet copy of a plan for federal aid to
good roads submitted by blm to tbe Joint con
gressional committee on post roads In April,
1113, In which he presents the very same
echeme for exchange of United States bonds for
bonds Issued by our own states in carrying out
the good roads movement. Senator Bourne ad
vocated a $200,000,000 3 per cent loan to be,
turned over to the states pro rata for Lhelr 4
per cent securities, the extra 1 per cent to con
stitute a sinking fund which would extinguish
the debt In exactly 48.89 yesrs.
All that Mr. Bryan hss done, therefore, has
been to take the credit merger Idea put out by
Penator Bourne for the promotion of our domes
tic public Improvements and propose to apply it
In Its minutest detail to the public improvement
aorks of the Pan-American states of Central
and South America. Of course, no patent right
has been issued to cover the device, and we are
not certain that Senator Bourne claims original
ity, but it plainly Is not original with Mr. Bryan.
After-the-War Immigration.
Attention of our readers is specially di
rected by The Bee to the article In our Letter
box written by Mark Woods to suggest and em
phasise the urgency of an organized effort to
draw to Nebraska some of the desirable agri
cultural Immigrants sure to seek new homes
at the close of the present European war. Tbe
analysis of the forces tending to swell a new
tide of immigration soon coincides with The
Bee's view already expressed and Nebraska's
need for more people of the thrifty and In
dustrious sort to develop our still unbroken
acres and increase the yield of the already cul
tivated land is self-evident. In the earlier
periods of settlement, much work was done
along this line with results worth many times
the outlay of money and labor. What was
done then to guide the flow of immigration by
the development movement can be done again
if undertaken in the right way and by the right
people. We do not know whether tbe State
Board of Agriculture has the authority and re
sources to organize and carry on such a plan
at Mr. Woodt proposes, but tbe snbject is of
supreme importance to the state and it Is none
too early, to get tbe necessary machinery ready.
The Yaqui and Civilization.
News reports Indicate that In Sonora, Mexico,
the Yaqui Indians continue to threaten American
settlers, so the presence of American armed
forces may be required before order is restored.
The Yaqui Indian has been the subject of much
misunderstanding in this country, and has been
made the central figure In a great deal of beau
tiful romance. As a matter of fact, the Yaqui
Is a full cousin to the Apache, with all the tat
ter's capacity for cussed ness, and a great deal
more of energy In ltt application. He has the
tame claim to the land that the aborigines bad
In this country, and made about the same use
or It.
Mexico's dealing with the Yaquis, as with all
Its Indian tribes, was originally much more hu
mane than the United States' treatment of its
redmen. The efforts to educate and civilize tbe
Indians were largely wasted, for the turbulent
spirits among the tribe kept the state of Sonora
In a constant turmoil. Massacres were common,
and dangers to settlers were ever present, until
Porflrlo DIat finally removed some of the more
unruly Yaouls to Yucatan. This later unloosed
a flood of "sob stories" about the "slavery" Into
which" these unfortunate Indians had been sold.
A halo of romance wns properly illuminated and
placed on the Yaqui brow, and many people In
the United States have been of the opinion that
the tribe to its last man perished In glorious re
sistance to a tyrant, or In the cane fields of
Little has ever been told of the savagery
practiced by the Yaquis against tbe settlers in
northwestern Mexico, but Diss knew what he
was doing when he tried to pacify the country.
The final chapter may have to be written by
Uncle Sam, Just as it was when Geronimo and
his band of cut-tbroats were permanently
The tragic side of continuous banditry Is
revealed in the bread lines of Mexico City.
The spectacle of hundreds struggling for
bread and grains of corn with which life
may be sustained rivals the horrors of Ireland's
famine yesrs of 1848-9. Unlike the Irish
tragedy the Mexicans are ravaged by Internal
wars and a productive country devastated by
guerillas. Humanity may well hope that the
men responsible for the sufferings of the people
will eventually pay the full penalty of their
Surpassing opportunities for "easy money"
abound on the Rto Grande border, but pass un
noticed by votaries of the art. A f 20 gold coin
can be transmuted Into $700 of Mexican paper
highly decorated and "made In the U. S. A."
The only labor involved is to float the bundle
for a square meal. That calls for salesmanship
of the first order.
The Army and Navy Journal condemns the
practice of empbaaixlng the "terrible loss of
life" in the present war, and presents flcurea
showing a larger percentage of injurlea ia
peace than in war. The objection would have
soma force It one system of maiming suspended
operations while the other held the field.
Six lawyers called as experts In a New York
court trial testified that a few Scotch highballs
tend to "sharpen a cross-examiner's wits," and
are "an aid instead of a hindrance" to a law
er in the performance of duty. An exception
may be noted here to the tendency to discredit
all expert evidence.
War Losses and Numbers
1 Hew Tork
ZyealB- feat.
FROM different ecurces lthln the last two weeks
we are enabled to draw some lde. of the looses
Incurred by three of the combatant nations alma
the beginning of the war. The moat definite figures
are the British, contained In atatementa In the House
of Commons. The next definite are the Oerman. being
compiled from the Prussian casualty lists, with an
estimate for the oilier Gem tan states. The least
definite are the Russian losses, which may on'y be
approximated from the statistics of Russian prisoners
recently published in the Oerman newspapers. For
Austrian and French losses we have no basis even
for an approximation, though we know, of course
that In both caaea thy have leen extremely Severe.
So far as the Knslish land forces are concerned,
the war up to May SI had lasted a little over forty
weeks, beginning with the battle of Mons, last Wednes
day It wns announced In the House of Commons thst
the total casualtlea on land since the beginning of
hostilities have been IXiSS, or an average of .50 a
week. The first general summary of British losses
aa complied from the lists up to September 7, for two
and a half weeka of war. gave total casualtlea of 1H.783,
or an average of a little over 7.000 a week. These first
sixteen days Included the disastrous battle of Mona
and the hurried retreat before Von Kluck'a over
whelming forcea, to the heglnn'ng of the battle of the
Marne. Yet the weekly average It will he noticed, is
not much higher than for the entire course of the war,
ahowlng that trench fighting, though undramatlc and
barren of great results, may be as costly aa the old
fashioned fighting !n the open. In the beginning this
would not seem to have been the case. In February,
Asqulth announced that tip to the fourth of that
month the casualtlea were about 104,noo. In other words,
during the twenty-one and a half weeks after the be
ginning of the battle of the Marne the weekly average
waa about 4,W); and these would Include the captures
around Antwerp and the terrific fighting around
Tpres In November. In April, a second official state
ment gave the loases up to the eleventh of thit
month as 139.000, or since February 4 a weekly average
of something less than 4.0rtD; yet this period Included
the assault at Neuve Chapelle and the furious counter
attacks that followed.
Rut the latest flgurea ehow an extraordinary In
ereaae. If the losses on April 11 were ir!9,00u and on
May SI were 26S.COO. It would mean that the casualties
for aeven weeks were nearly lau.OW, or a weekly
average of 17,100, four times as heavy as during the
battlca of the Marne, the Alsne and Tpres, two and
a half aa heavy aa d itlng the retreat from Mons. The
operations during thla period Included the capture and
defense of Hill , the polson-gaa battlea around Tpres
and the unsuecefSful drive In conjunction with the
successful French attacks north of Arras. The figures
ahow plainly that the British have been under heavy
pressure In Flanders, and. In the second place, that
their losses have been high In the Dardanelles They
explain the growing unrest about high explosives.
Without them It la not only impossible to break
through; It is fearfully expensive merely to hold the
For Germany's losses we have the rtusslnn lists,
which up to two weeks ago are reported to have ru,i
close to l.aO.OOO namea. For the aouth German states
we must add about SO per cent, so that the total
casualtlea would amount to well over 1.800.i0; and
with the fairly heavy coat paid for the vlctury In
Oallcla, the German debit account Is now close to the
I.OM.000 mark. The English figures show that the
established ratios still hold, that the losa In officer
la about t per cent of tbe losa of men In the ranks
actually the ratio la aa 1 to 23 and that the killed
are one-fifth of the total casualtlea. Applying these
ratloa to Germany, we find that the German deaths
are now about 40o.0f4 and that the kaiaer has lost he.
tween 80,000 and 9u,K officers In killed, wounded and
The number of Russian prisoners In Germany at
the beginning of May waa 513,000, according to the
German preaa. In Anatrla-Hnngiiry there were J02,0'Ai
Russian prisoners. Since the beginning of the battles
In Oallcla the Teuton allies claim to have taken 300,000
prisoners. Thla would bring . Uia total number of
Russians In captivity to 1.115,000. Of other nationalities
there were In Germany and Austria on May K, ac
cording to the same authority, French pr!aonera,
:M,0I)0; Belgians. 40.0TO; Servians, SO.Ono, and English
:4,000, or altogether 1,4X3,01)0 allies. These are numbers
asys the Geiman press, of which the history of wsr
haa never seen the like. This la quite true. But a very
fair approximation ia supplied by the number of
Teuton prisoners In allied countries. In April, Russia
officially claimed Slfi.Ono Austrian prisoners. By this
time the number must ba . close , to 700,000. Of Aus
trian prisoners In Serbia there must be easily aa many
aa of Porblsn prisoners In Austria, ao that the total
Austrian loases may ba placed at 700.000.
For German prisoners w- have no figures,
but 150.0110 la a aafa conjecture, the great majority
being taken in the west. Thus, the prisoners held by
the allies are doso to 1,000,000. giving the Austro
Germana the advantage by
Russla'a total losses, argue the German papers,
must be enormous. If one takea the Dumber of pris
oners Into consideration; and It Is, indeed, probable
that the drain on the caar'a armies haa been more
severe than that of any other nation except Austria
Hungary. But there la the obvious consideration that
Russla'a large lossea In prisoner must mean a com
paratively low loss in killed and wounded. The large
Russian captures have been made by enveloping
German movements In which resistance has become
tiaeless, and scattered bodiea of men have laid down
their arma with comparatively amall losa of Ufa.
Thla happened twice in Kaat Prussia and now In
West Gallcla, where the awlft German advance from
the Ounajec took In the rear the Russian armies
In the Carpathians. Thus It la likely that the Russian
dead and wounded are a good deal less than the
prisoners lost. The total Russian caaualtlea do not
exceed S.ouo.OOO and are probably nearer 1,7T0,iiu0. Actu
ally, the Rusaian lossea would be leaa than the
German, which, as we have aeen, by thla time, have
reached the 2.OW,0O-mark. But. of oottrse, the German
loss must be reckoned on a basis of (.009.000 men under
arms, whereas It la doubtful If Russia haa had mora
than 3,000,000 at the tront.

LINCOLN. June l.-To the HiUtor of
The Bee: When the European war enda
a great tide of Immigration will aweep
from Rurnpe to A met lea. It will consist
of the mewt virile and ambitious of the
men who having fought their best for
their respwtlve countries will feel no
1uty resting upon them to shoulder the
burden of paying the heavy cost of the
wsr lit Increased taxes. A large per
centage of these Immigrants will be from
the farms of Europe. Ought not Ne
braska to organise for the purpose of
getting Its share of this Immigration?
Talking the matter over with some
large owners of Nebraska lands the other
day, it was suggested that the work of
reaching out after the desirable and the
best of these Immigrants ought to ba
placed In the handa of an organized body
like our state board of agriculture. I
am wilting thla letter In the hope that I
msy enlist the powerful aid of The Bee
In what I believe to be a most Important
tank and one that If properly handled
will add many millions to our productive
In the various business trlpa that I
have made to Europe I have been Im
pressed by the wonderful results achieved
by fanners in Belgium and France and
Germany. Not only have they been forced
to learn how to Increase yields and to
make every Inch of their land productive
by reason of the scarcity of acreage, but
they have also been compelled to absorb
all of tire detail of profitable marketing.
There will be thousands of the kind of
farmers who have made agriculture so
profitable in thone countries that land la
worth Vm and IfiflO an acre who will head
for America when the war Is over, and
Nebraska ought to get a goodly per
centage of them.
Suppose we could get 10,000 or 20.000 of
them located on Nebraska farms. With
the object lessons they could give other
farmers In doubling yields and Improv
ing their land, thla state would add
millions of bushela of wheat and other
grains to Ita yearly production In a re
markably short time. Land values would
Increase In proportion as productivity
grew, snd our farma would be aolllng at
double and treble their present value
within a decade, with the limit removed.
There is a much mora serious feature
than reaching out after these farmers.
Moat of them will have been Impover
ished by the war, and they will need to
have their farming operations financed.
How shall this be done? Let m suggest
a practicable way. There are dozens of
men In thla slate who own large tracts
ot land, good, tillable land. I am one of
them and therefore feel competent to
upenk for them. They stand ready to
sell a portion of their holdingea to these
ImmlBrsnta at a price to be determined
by a state body or commission composed
of competent men, on long time nnd nt
low Interest, and In addition will finance
their flrat year's operations. They can.
afford to do this because of tha increased
value that success will give to their other
holdings and to the various business en
terprises with which most of them are
The work of interesting these land own-
era and listing their offeiings'and check
ing up on the various details should be
entrusted to a body that haa the author
ity ot the atate behind It, not only to
create confidence In the plan, but to as
sure a square deal for the immigrants.
I suggest the State Board of Agriculture
becauae it la already organised, because
It Is splendidly manned, because ita pur
poses are to develop agriculture nnd be
cause Its very name will create the neces
sary confidence in the enterprise. It haa
all of the machinery for going out and
getting the kind of immiaranta we want
and also in placing them where thev
should bs put
These European farmers have learned
lessons that our farmers, tilling a virgin
soil and many acres, have not had to
learn. Enough of them scattered through
the productive areas of the state would
work wondera in increasing yields and
land values. The result to the people of
the atate would be marvelous.
The Bee waa founded by a man who
came to this country an Immigrant, kis
alhly no better equipped than thousands
of these men I refer to. What hla energy
and his intelligence wrought ia written
in the history of Nebraska. What he did
for the atate can. In a way, be done by
hundreds of others from across the sea
from whence he came, and I feel sure that
his sons, to whom I address this letter,
will be glad to aid In some such project
ss I have outlined.
