For bb American Merchant Marine.
Secretary of the Treasury MeAdoo, who Is
a member of the president's personal family as
well as of his cabinet family, and therefore
very likely in position to speak by the book,
says that the democrats will establish a new
American merchant marine. lie does not say
by what profess of hocus pocus this result will
be brought about, but it is not likely to come
through the administration's shipping bill, de
feated at the last session of congress. That
measure Is no longer championed, even by its
warmest caucus supporters. It was so openly a
makeshift, and Its deficiencies were so appsrent,
that only through the power of the caucus and
by pleading political exigency was the presi
dent able to muster support for it. The objec
tions to it are as potent now as ever.
Democratic leaders are announcing them
selves as opposed to a ship subsidy in any form.
They demand the right to buy ships where they
ran be had the cheapest, to man them with the
cheapest crews obtainable, and to put them into
trade under the American flag. This means
buying ships on the Clyde or in Japan, where
labor Is much cheaper than in the United States,
manning them with Chinese or Lascar crews,
nd calling the mixture "American." This sug
gestion is quite In line with the democratic free
trade policy, exhibited in other directions.
The republicans may not be able to restore
the canal tolls exemption, repealed by the dem
ocrats, but they may be depended on to pro
pose other proper means for fostering and en
couraging American shipping without causing
other American Interests to suffer.
An Answer to an Inquiry.
SOUTH OMAHA. Aug. S.-To the Kdltor of The
Bee: You Snld something the other rtivy about the
fchool board being fleeted hereafter "at large," and
nominated only "by petition." I do not understand
ust what you mran. Are we not to have any mem
bers of the School board over here at all?
For-the benefit of our Inquirer, and all others
who may be Interested, we may state that the
last legislature enacted a new law governing the
election of members of the Omaha School board,
abolishing ward representation and making the
terms four years, but overlapping so that half
of them expire every two years. To bring this
about, eight new members sre to be chosen in
1916,-of whom the two receiving the lowest
number of votes are to serve for two years only,
so that sfter that only six need be chosen at
one time.
The same legislature, as part of this plan,
amended the primary eloction to exempt from
party nomination candidates for School board
places and to make petition nomination the only
way to put names on the official ballot in a
word, wrote into the law the method which had
been pursued by force of circumstances at the
ast Omaha school board election. Whether
this will, or will not, give School board represen
tation to what was formerly South Omaha, or
to any other particular section of the city, re
mains to be seen. Ordinarily South Omaha can
didates would be at a disadvantage as compared
with Omaha candidates, unless personally known
throughout the whole city, or Included in some
kind of a slate, although presumably the pro-
fosed method of election la intended to prevent
slate-making. Under the conditions now exlst-
ng, there Is only one thing to do, and that is
to wait and see how it works out at the first
trial text year.
Nebraska's last legislature enacted a la
specially to authorize state banks to Join in
the federal reserve system. No one has been
trampled down, however, la the on-rush of the
state banks to make use of thlu permission.
The public debta of the several European
countries at war have been almost doubled in
twelve months. Desire to escape the grinding
taxes will be one of the forcea stimulating the
immigration to this country as soon as peace
I restored.

Kedfield's Whitewashing- Effort
Secretary Redfleld's obvious purpose to
shield the steamboat Inspection bureau, through
bis direction of the Eastland inaulrr. has
aroused a tremendous storm of popular Indig
nation, not only In Chicago, but In all parts of
the country. That so shocking an episode should
be followed at once by the efforts of a cabinet
officer to relieve his underlings of blame for a
catastrophe for which they are in any way liable
is profoundly disappointing to people who rely
on their certificate when going aboard a vessel
under its survey.
Disclosures so far made la the Eastland
ease Indicate Incompetence or neglect, or, what
Is worse, collusion with the owners, on part of
the inspectora who allowed a notoriously un
safe vessel to travel under the protection of
government sanction, neither Is popular feeling
allayed by the uncontradicted report that after
being passed by a federal Inspector, his son-ln
law was given the Job of chief engineer of the
ill-fated boat.. The secretary of commerce is him
self a marine engineer, .ad knows without being
told by witnesses whr.t form of craft is sea
worthy and what is not, and this fact makes his
present Inquiry seem all the more Insincere
The federal grand Jury handling the rase may
bring In Indictments, fixing the responsibility in
some measure, but the steamboat inspection
bureau does not shine any brighter for the
whitewash the secretary of commerce Is laying
on it.
Joffre Personally
-Harrison tUsvee la XvetrloSr'a-
JOFKHE resembles the Iste J. P. Morgan some
what. In that he la the same kind of monster.
His head U altogether too big for his body. H.s
none to very large and very Kly. His upper teeth
etlok far out over his under lip, so that his thin
mustache does not hide tiicm. His shoulders are nar
row and rounded over upon his flat chest. His arms
are very long and rather thin for a fat man. His
hands are enormous and bony, like the hands of n
Ions, skinny man. His belly is little and pudgy. Hl
legs and feet are those of an Ill-developed, little fat
He has a way of squinting and grinning which is
very characteristic. He stands badly, dresses ridicul
ously, never rides a hcree any more, and walks about
like Prerfdent Polncare.
The soldierly part of him Is his head, which Is
hard, tough, calm and hideous with the same sort -if
interesting hlceousnres which the late Mr. Morgan
had to such an extraordinary deKree. The prett
photographs which make him look like Mr. Taft do
not resemble htm a Mt Ha Is simply a softer edition
of Mr. Morgan, with more kindliness and humor and
with less conscious fore. Initial ve and pugnacity. He
Is perfectly French looking and strtkea the French
officer as a natural development of the type of Frenc.i
general of plehelan origin. The noble generals have a
different look about them, a superior stature, thinners
and sharpness, with a touch of acorn In their facial
His officers say that none of the three or four say.
Ings attributed to him by Journalists since the opening
of the war was really uttered by him, and that he has
no "ealngs" In him. He gave one Interview, to an
Old school friend turned Journalist, and was hlKhlv
amused because the censor cut It all out of the papers.
He has never made any speeches. He sat silent
through four months of dally socialist discussions of
the three-years' military-service law In the Chamber
of Deputies. He has written only a single brochure
on the expedition to Tlmbuctoo as literary baggage
for his entry to the Academy. He does not write the
brilliant "orders of the day" which are generously at
tributed to him by the censor, and it la said he nevet
writes personal letters or reads newspapers.
At work he la systematic and keeps a large clerical
force overworked. But he is a soft master as regards
hours. Insisting that all his subordinates shall sleen
as long as they can stay abed, which he does himself.
His admirers say that he Is Incapable of worry or
of the sllghest degree of excitement. He has never
shown any emotion about anything and has never
been known to be interested in anything outside his
Immediate Job.
His society never bores anybody, simply because
he uses up all hla time In working fairly steadily and
fairly hard, sleeping a lot, eating slowly and resting
if tor meals, taking little walks for health, and riding
about the country In his family automobile on Inspec
tion tripe. He has the air of being quite as tediously
on the Job and of making an honest living for his
family as If he were a little business man.
He fussed along over the battle of the Marne Just
the way he does about the routine details of arm
administration, and slept a lot every night. The omy
special recommendations which he has ever seen (it
to publish were concerning the necessity of town load
ers getting busy threshing the crops In the war lone
and "small matters" about how to keep the roads up
He received a batch of Journalists in his school-
house office on the front one day, when the minister
Insisted. He sort of yawned at them, mumbled some
thing banal about "saving the country," and got thorn
hustled out. The only map In the room waa a black-
and-white on of Poland, and the general appeared to
be In course of straightening out his cash accounts.
Joffre's manner of attacking the enemy suggests
that he haa no fancy Idea back of the attack, but
merely attacks to accomplish the purpose of war, whlcr
la to defeate the enemy where you find him and tc
Impose your will on him, whether It leads In any par
ticular direction or not.
Above all, Joffre cares nothing for the political
direction of his strategy. Supreme credit must be
given to him, In the early part of the war, for his
utter Indifference to the "rescue" of Paris, which the
government and the people naturally regarded aa th
cardinal point of the campaign. Joffre let Paris take
care of Itself as best It could, while ha fought hla
enemy squaraly en the field till he beat him. He knew
full well that If he didn't beat him Paris would fall In
three days without any siege and the name of Joffre
would be anathema In over-centrallsed France till that
little geographical point was relieved. I
But It Joffre had permitted himself to worry
about Parla, aa von Kluck a whole strategy over
whelmingly Influenced him to do, ha might have savs-1
Paris, but ha would have saved It only to lose all
France and then Paris, too.
What was needed was a purely military steadiness
and courage. Joffre is all purely military steadiness
and courage.
Joffre aad General Cherflls were talking the other
day about a certain aristocratic general who had
heaved a sigh of relief that "Ood was at last on th
aide of France." Cherflls' comment waa: "Blnce 1ST0
Ood has somehow come to dlstlngulsh'between France
and tha government of France."
Joffre la of the people, not of the government. Hie
father was a cooper and bU mother tended the vinos
on their little farm. Out of such work they wrung the
competency which save Joseph Jacques Joffre the In
come for a military career. ,
Pay of Movie "Star.."
How terrible it is to have our Illusions and
delusions unceremoniously punctured! These
fancy stories about fancy pay for fancy movie
actors refers only to the very top-notchers. Mary
Plckford's salary, it is true, is $1,600 a week
Charlie Chaplin gets $1,200; William Farnum,
$1,000; Marguerite Clark, f00; Mary Puller,
$500; Mabel Normand, $500; Maurice Costello,
$500; J. Warren Kerrigan, $100; Earle Will
lams, $300; Blanche Sweet. $250, but most of
the rest are little ones.
These figures, too, are official, having been
developed la sworn testimony in court proceed
lug out in California to compel one of the con
splcuous movie "stars" to quit playing hookey
and go back to work under her contract at $40
a week. Part of the defeuee was that the lady
was not a ' star," btcauie "stars get not less
than $150 a week," and that her aervlcea were
not so essential anyway, becaune the market is
"flooded with actresses and actors of the aame
caliber who receive from 25 to $71 a week."
So there you have it riKht out In the open
that the big money Is pulled down by the mighty
few, the ordinary run of actors getting about
the same whether they pose before films or do
one-night stands across country.
Let those Inveighing against the catalogue
houses remember that the latter would not have
made any headway except through the use of
printers' ink. Systematic advertising will build
up trade for the local merchants in the same

Twice Told Tales .
Some Voire.
Here Is a little story that was told by Congress
man John E. Baker of California the other night
when the talk topic In the lobby of a hotel took a
musioal turn;
Borne time ago the guests at a reception were dis
cussing the relative merits of several songsters, when
one of the party turned to a man named Brown.
"By the way, Brown," said he, "you are some
thing of a singer, are you not?"
"Not on your life!" waa the emphatic response of
Brown. "I never sang a note that somebody didn't
threaten to send In a riot call. Tou are probably
thinking of my brother."
"Perhape I am." waa the thoughtful rejoinder of
the other. "Has he a heavy bass voice?"
"Yes." smiled Brown; "so dcrned heavy that It
makea htm bow-legged to carry It." Philadelphia

The Kansas story of how the farmers put beer
kegs Instead of wheels on their binders, In order to
harvest In wet weather this year, recalls to the
Lawrence Oasette the old story that was often told
In the days when prohibition was young In Kansas.
There was a law that permitted the sale of liquor
for medicinal, mechanical and scientific purposes.
A farmer came in one day and offered to purchase
a gallon of stuff from the local druggist. Out Came
the druggist's book, in which all sale and the pur
pose for whlen the liquor was to be used must be
recorded. "What are you going to use It for medl
clnal, mechanical or scientific purposes?" asked the
ftj-ug clerk. "Tou might as well put It down as me
chanical." resi-onded the farmer. "I'm ruin' to have
a barn raisin'."

OMAHA. Aug. 4.-TO the Editor of The
Hee: Motorcycle riders of Omaha deeply
resent the statement made by a probation
officer that motorcycles lead more girls
t ruin than automobiles.'
I have ridden motorcycles for the iast
five years and I wish to state I have
never met a better or more manly crowd
of young fellows thn Omaha motorcycle
riders. Anyone who casts a slur at motor
cydes casts a slur at the representative
young men of Omaha, for among our
midst are members of some of the best
families In Omaha.
To tate that motorcycles lead more
girls to ruin than autos Is plain humbug.
The average automobile owner la an up
right citizen. But the uses to which auto
mobiles may be put at times are far
lower and more degenerating than they
are with the motorcycles. Take a trip
through the downtown district of an even
ing and notice the texts and autos sta
tioned in front of the chop suey parlors
and on street oomers ready to take
parties of men and girls to resorts and
roadhouses. The rapid growth of the road
houses scattered outside the city limits
Is directly due to the use, or misuse, of
automobiles. Dosens of cars are In the
direct employ of these houses of Ill-repute.
Motorcycles, however, are rarely
seen around these roadhouses. Show me
one Immoral motorcycle rider, Mr. Proba
tion Officer, and I win show you ten
moral perverts riding about In automo
biles. To prove my assertion it Is only
necessary to go out on the public road
and witness the disgraceful antics of Joy
riders In the rear seats of passing cars.
In conclusion, . I will state that the
motorcycle riders of Omaha are willing
to submit to a fair comparison with any
other pleasure vehicle and we feel sure
we will be given a clean bill by our
broad-minded citizens.

OMAHA. Aug. 4. To the Editor of The
Bc: What kind of times are we coming
to when children defy their own parents.
My two oldest daughters, 14 and 13 'years,
went to work at the close of school. They
make V and IS. The first few weeks all
went well and they brought home the
money and I put It in tha bank where It
wilt do some good.
But they soon got fool Ideas from the
girls where they work. These girls said
they don't have to give the money to
their parents, all they have to do la pay
board. Now, my daughters got these same
Ideas and last week the oldest said she
wouldn't pay her money to me any more.
1 had to take It away from her and I
warned her not to do It again. Now this
week she came home and handed me 14.
With the other 13 she had bought a fine
silk waist, something the hasn't got ant
use for, and some candy. She refused
to take it back and wouldn't tell me
where she bought It.
It seemed that this stirred up trouble
In the whole family and soon they were
all bawling. I didn't know what to do,
that they should turn on their own father
that haa supported them all these years.
Is It the law that a minor has to give
their earning to their parents, or Isnl
It? If so, she'll give me what she makes
If I have to go to the factory to get it
After I have spent hundreds of dollar
In bringing her up all these years, just
when she would be earning something
and bringing It in she turns around and
says she don't owe me anything. It Is
scandalous that children nowaday don't
have resnect for parents. It was differ
ent when I was a boy, I can tell you.

NORTH PLATTE. Neb.. Aug. 4.-To the
Editor of The Bee: W. J. Bryan de
livers his celebrated lecture on "Peace"
before the North Platte Chautauqua
course August 8. Bryan Is great on
"Peace." He has delivered his "peace"
lecture around the world. He Is sup
posed by this time to have th leoture
down "pat," and the people of North
Platte expect to be "muchly" entertained.
Considering Bryan's military career la
the Spanish war, and his efficiency as a
politician in "swallowing the pops,"
Bryan is some on "Peace."
Th only "peace" on this earth Is
the "Peace that passeth unders'.andlng"
that prevails In graveyards. Every
thing outside of graveyards la commo
tion, generating life and action.
The strenuous condition of th publl
mind at the present time demands aom
kind of paregoric. Bryan has got th
"dope." "Peace." Bryan put the "pop"
to Bleep true, the democratic party
flaunts the ghost of the people's Inde
pendent party to the public to catoh
votes, still the "pops" sleep. The all
Important thing to be done now Is to
keep the people asleep.
Notwithstanding Mr. Bryan's peaceful
pose on politics, he 1 wide awake, as
the "dough" comes to himself. Bryan
left his post as secretary of state to
go to Maryland to tell hla peace stories
at a convention of farmers. When he
returned to Washington, he sent a bill
to the Maryland farmers for t30O his
regular price was f&OO, but being as they
were farmers, he would discount It to
I MO. The farmers paid the bill.
Owing to the above satisfactory ac
tivity, the North Platte Chautauqua man
agement (the directing spirit of which
Is democratic, and, like Bryan, religiously
Inclined) decided to put Bryan "on th
boards" that th unsuspecting people ot
North Platte might be' brought peace
fully under the influence cf Bryan'
gent) Inspiration.
The "gentle life" la as old aa human
society. It was, and is now, used by
exploiter to put th people to sleep
while the exploitation goes on. If Bryan
ever made a dollar outside of exploita
tion, let some on show where It cam
from. From tha "crop of gold" to th
whlppoorwlir song, "1 to 1." down to
state ownership of railroads (which ha
professes to carry over) did Bryan evr
stand twelve months by any declara
tion be ever made?
Bryan and Roosevelt stand today a
the twin factors In American politics.
It ia three years sine they put "Joe''
Cannon out of the speakership. t her
have they progressed? What do they
propose to do la to future?
Th "papa" threw their oaadiaete over
board and elected Bryan to congress.
Bryan Ignored them, and during his
"Cross of Gold" campaign refused to
fuse with Tom Watson, thereby betray
ing and destroying the people's Inde
pendent party. Bryan has supported H
the "bunk" legislation passed by the
democratic congress In th last two yesrs.
Now, when the situation become com.
plicated, he resigns and preaches "peace."
Bryan is like a preacher preachnlg In
Latin no on know what ha Is talk
Ing about, and no contention all la
