Picking- a Place for Bryan.
Sachem and sagamores of the democratic
tribes are much concerned Jut at present over
the task of landing the late secretary of state
In a place where he will stay put. This 1 not
an easy task, nor a novel one. It ha been tried
many times, and has always failed, but the futil
ity of the undertaking doesn't seem to dismay
th other leaders of Mr. Bryan's party. The
ei-eecretsry has a most annoying way of bob
bing up Just at a time when hi presence will be
most Inconvenient for the other fellow, always
lighting Just where he Is most In th way. One
expedient proposed Is to make him president of
a great Chautauqua assembly; another I to give
him a professorship In a big school, where he
csn lecture to his heart's content. These insti
tutions will profit through the advertising ob
tained by being named In connection with Mr.
Bryan, but they needn't flatter themselve that
either I going to secure a monopoly on his
attention. He 1 certain to be on the Job in
1916, and bis presence mean trouble for a cer
tain brand of democrat.
Oar Present Foreign Commeroe.
From the Department of Commerce cornel
the analyst of the foreign trade of the United
State for the month of April, which 1 inter
esting, especially s showing thst some of the
glittering generalities given out by the press
agents of the administration are only half
truth. Quite a little has bsen made of the
statement that, despite the rush of so-called war
orders, the export of manufactured article, ex
clusive of foodstuffs, shows a falling off for ten
month In comparison with a similar period 'in
1914. Thl I true, the decrease being about
$40,000,000 for the combined Item of "manu
factures for further us In manufacturing" and
"manufacture ready for consumption.''
But, along with thl statement must be
tsksn the further fact that In the ten months
reported on, the exports of the United States to
Germany have fallen from $308,820,104 to $28
861,187, and for the month of April, 1115, are
reported as nothing. To Austria in the last ten
months the United State sent goods valued at
1, 319,914. as sgalnst $19,808,66 lu the ten
months period ending with April, 19 14. For
Belgium th decrease waa from $53,698,230 to
$18,310,028. The figure are roost eloquent
of th effect of th wsr on the foreign trade
cf the United States, and in thsmselve very
readily account for the announced deficit In the
total of manufactures sent abroad.
On the other hand, shipment to France,
Italy, The Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and th
United Kingdom hsve Increased enormously, to
almost make up the los sustained through the
stoppage of trade with the beleaguered coun
tries. The shipments to these countries are not
reported on In detail, but th fact that Norway's
jmrohsies bars risen from $7,693,050 to $36,
S94.976 is significant, as I also the increase in
Sweden' purchase, from $13,168,123 to $71,
Solution for One Censorship Easy.
Complaint from Scandinavian countries,
especially Sweden, that the British censor ha
been opening letter passing through ths malls,
U to be met by a very simple expedient. Here
after malls from the United States to the Scan
dinavian countries will be sent forwsrd by ves
sels that do not touch at British ports. This
will easily obviste th annoying Interference
and Is not a cause for International complica
tions. The fact that private mall ha been under
going scrutiny in England ha been known for
month. It I charged that the British censor
has a machine for opening letters thst does it
so neatly that only the most minute examina
tion will disclose the fact that the missive has
been tampered with. Hitherto, no formal com
plaint ha been lodged, but the Swede got tired
of the practice and protested. How far th
censorship 1 permissible In thl direction I an
open question, but the British authorities have
been pretty well stirred up over the practice of
espionage and are suspicious of all European.
However, mall that doe not go through British
hands will not be tampered with.
600,000, and other countries by 1,300,000, so
that the falling off In direct shipment to Ger

for. Increased activity in bom manufacture

Our New Secretary of State
IN TUB photographs of Robert Lansing, our new
aecretaiy of ststs, the features reveal In every line
the uualltlea that all the world has come to acknowl
edge aa rharacterlntlrally American. There are flrm
neau. strength, persistency, energy, keen Insight, fear
less honesty, snd humor ths most necessary attributes
of what we take pride In calling the American splrn.
and whl-sh nowhere may more appropriately be found
than lu the Department of State. They have. Indeed,
had a great deal to do with th nation's International
policy thua far, or so we sre Informed by "a member
of the United States diplomatic service," who aveis
that Mr. Inflng aas'sted materially In the wording
of our various notes to Ormany end England.
"The office of counselor," we are told, "which Mr.
Tensing held. Is second In rank to thst of secretary
of state, and wsa invented by Secretary Knox for
Henry M. Woyt. a lawyer of more profeaalonal Im
portance than most government officiate. It was ac
cepted at the beginning of the present admlniatratlon
by John Baasett Moore, who enjoyed the hlghet rep
utatlon as an author on International law, but failed
to ogree with Mr. Brysn. Mr. Lennlng then stepped
Into the place. It Is a mistake to suppose that he was
s rival of the Nebreska orator. In fact, he-acted often
aa a mediator to smooth out friction between the
president and the secretary."
if the supposition of his opposition to Bryan has
arisen, It Is perhaps due, a much as anything, to tle
fact of their very different personallttea, Lansing la
the quiet, efficient, forceful, self-controlled type ft
American who runs an organisation whlls others are
making a fuss.
The secretary stands about five feet ten Inches
snd weighs 1S5 pounds. He Is well set up and exceed
ingly nest In appearance. In fact, he Is known aa
the bet-dreaed man among the higher government
officials, presenting an odd contrset to the late secre
tary. He has thick, closely cropped Iron-gray hair
and a small, neatly trimmed, gray mustache. At this
time of year he itsuslly wears a gray cutaway coat,
striped trouaera, and a soft gray hat. He goes to
church with his wife twice every Sunday.
He llkea to watch a game of base ball and plays
golf himself. He Is moderately fond of the thegter.
He hsrdly ever drinks snythlng beyond half a glass
of wine for polltenees' sake, but he Is quite devoted to
tobscco. At the office for a largs part of the time he
smokes a rich, dark brier-wood pipe, but, of course,
he has to put It awsy when an ambassador calls.
Mr. Lansing has s fondness for drawing, and h's
friends ssy he has considerable talent in this direc
tion. His strong point Is making caricatures of people.
Usually when talking to a person he makes sketohea
on little plecea of paper. It Is rumored that he has
made some clever cartoons of well known diplomats
and politicians, but certainly he la very careful not
to let them get Into circulation.
The secretary writes poetry, nd finds the best re
lief from the worries of a difficult diplomatic situation
In this Intellectual exercise. He Is also a great reader
He goes to his office regularly at S o'clock In the
morning, riding in a trolley-car, and works late, usu
ally till ( o'clock, often returning In the evening.
Mr. Inalng is averse to seeing callers, because he
has so much to do, but when he does so his manner Is
exceedingly friendly snd sympathetic
His reputation for quiet, dry humor Is well recog
nised among lils scquslntances. The chronicler relates
one of tho secretary's favorite stories, which concerns
that period of Mr. Lansing's career when be waa
practicing law In Watertown. N. T.. where the Inx
alngs have long been prominent In the affairs of the
state, ever since old John Lansing went as a delegate
to the Constitutional convention at Philadelphia In
1787. Mr. Lansing had once to appear before a newly
elected Jtist'ce of the peace, and one, it appears, who
was not himself a lawyer, but the only substantial
cltljen available for the position. Th case proceeded
as follows; . ,
. In the Jourse of the trial Mr: Lansing oroae-exsm-Ined
a witness rather severely. The witness wss stub
born, and cither didn't or wouldn't catch the drift of
the lawyer's questions), which had to be repeated sev
Mr. 1-aDslng repeated a question five time without
changing a single word in it. His tactics Irritated
the Judge, and the lawyer was directed to ask a new
question. Instead he repeated th question a sixth
time, determined to get the answer be was after.
"Mr. Counselor," broke In the Judge, "I object to
your asking thst question again."
Ths question wss once more repeated.
Again the judge proteated. "Mr. Counselor," he de
clared In en Injured tone of voice, "I object to your
asking the same question ever snd over again."
Mr. Lansing wss qulok to take advantage of the
Judge's lack of Judicial training.
"Your objection I overruled," he snapped.
This completely nonplussed the Judge for a mo
ment, hut he recovered himself quickly and exclaimed
defiantly, "I take an exception!"

Protect the Babies' Kyea.
OMAHA, June iB.-To the Kditor of The
Bee: Can we not prevail on parents to
Instruct those who take their babies onto
the street to be more careful to protect
the eyes of these little ones?
It la positively distressing to see how
children, too small to help themselves,
are compelled to He and stars Into the
sky. and sometimes actually Into the sun
Itself, when tsken out In this way. Most
maids, and for that matter, many
mothers, seem to think that protection
from the sun Is all that Is necessary
But bright skylight is almost aa painful
as direct sunlight certainly enough so to
make enforced submission to It nothing
less than agony.
Carelessness in this respect is so unl

Calls Bryan a (tnltter.
BROKEN BOW. Neb., June .-To the
Editor of The Bee: In all the various
comments nud discussions on the resigna
tion of William J. Bryan from the presi
dent's cabinet It seems the most amusing
attitude of one of our state papers has
been entirely overlooked. Shortly after
Mr. Bryan's resignation the State Jour
nal came out editorially criticising Mm
quite severely for thst paper, and the
very nest dn carried another editorial
in the nature of an apology for the criti
cism and In defense of the ex-secrstary
of state's action. This editorial policy
of the Lincoln paper gives rise to the
query, "Does BrotV.cr Charley act aa
censor on al) editorials pertaining to his
Illustrious brother before they are pub
lished In the State Journal 7" Be that as
it may, the fact remains that our silver
tongued orator has proven himself a quit
ter and lost out on a good hsnd and will
soon be In the discard, for the American
people don't like a quitter. The campaign
slogan of the' democratic party to elect
congressmen at the last election was
"Uphold the hands of the president," and
at tho most critical moment the party's
so-called leader and dictator rocks the
boat by deserting the ship.
