The Western Bats Case.
The decision Just handed down by the Inter
slate Commerce rommlsalon la what Is known
ts "the western rate rase," Is somewhat In the
nature of a compromise, and Just at present is
not likely to meet the full approval of either
side. The railroads do not secure all the ad
vances asked for, nor are they denied all. The
vestern lines singled out certain specific com
modities. on which to Increase rales, while the
the eastern lines. In the -case settled some
months ago, asked for a general Increase in
rates of 5 per cent. Tho difference In procedure
did not involve any divergence in principle nor
bring forth any new argument to support the
request Need for more revenue, to be had only
tLrough Inrreased charges, was the basis of the
plea in both cases.
At the hearings the points were very fully,
argued, and-the - order of the commission is
based on complete Information at least The
effort of the order can not be fully told until the
railroads have bad time to readjust their tariff
sheets, and this Will take several weeks, as every
road In the country is finally affected by the
r.ew tariff. It will mean more operating revenue
for the roads, and the consumer has to pay the
Water' Board Hig-b. Finance.
Presumably inspired by the Water board's
high financier, his newspaper spokesman takes
exception to The Bee's criticism of the unneces
sary piling up of a colossal sinking and depre
ciation fund instead of buying In the purchase
bonds and cancelling them, and giving the tax
payers and the water users the benefit of the
reduced interest charge. While this discussion
must be academic so long as Omaha is helpless
to chsnge the arbitrary exactions of the Water
board, still the efforts to cloud the situation are
too palpable to let stand, as these facts show:
1. -The secret $7,000,000 bond deal without
competition was Inexcusable, and the later sale
of the additional 3500,000 of these bonds, sub
sequently bought back, was a losing speculation.
2. The sinking -fund reserve Is artificially
inflated. ' The sum of $124,810 is being set
side, annually to amortise the $7,000,000 of
bonds at the end of thirty years on a 4 per cent
basis, although the bonds themselves bear 4
per cent, and we-are told that some of the
money Is earning as high as 6 per cent. 'At 4 tt.
per cent the sinking fund would call for only
$114,744 to pay out In thirty years, so that we
are being needlessly mulcted an excess of $300,
000 at the rate of $10,000 a year. .
3. A depreciation reserve of $91,668 a year
is being set aside on what basis no one can
tell. Bo far It haa been almost wholly an Invest
ment fund. The theory of this depreciation
reserve Is that it will reproduce the plant In
f!fty years, but on a 4 per cent basis $91,666 a
year will produce $7,000,000 In thirty-five years,
end on a 4i per cent basis In thirty-three years.
To produce $7,000,000 In fifty years on a 4H
per cent basis would require only $39,214 a
year, or $52,4 52 a year less than we are setting
cslde.'; This assumes, of course, that the money
is to continue as an investment fund and would
not be spont for replacements, but on any true
computation basis the amount Is far too large.
4. Taking the sinking fund and the depre
ciation, fund together, totalling $216,476 per
year, we are being compelled to pay the cost of
the water plant almost twice over In a period of
5. It goes without saying that we cannot eat
our cake and have It, too. We cannot pile up
this tremendous surplus from year to year ex
cept by taking it out of the pocketa ofthe water
titers and the taxpayers.
It la not a question of possible misappropria
tion of the reserve fund by an Incompetent or
dishonest Water board. The members of the
board may be perfectly competent to run their
own business, and their personal honesty may
iiever be called in question, but In water works
matters everyone knows they hare so far blindly
obeyed the orders of the high financier, whose
purpose seems to be to accumulate a speculation
fund of millions of dollars rather than to lighten
the load' carried by the water users and taxpayers.
Carranza Chang-ei Front Again.
Supported by a message from the Argen
tinian minister of foreign affairs, Vennstiano
Carranxa has again changed front on the matter
of All-American adjustment of Mexican affairs
rnd declares '.'the Mexican people will look with
displeasure on any attempt" to Interfere with
the Carransa plans. This recusance on part of
the first chief may not have much force In de
termining the ultimate action of the conference,
tut it is an Indication of the diplomatic difficul
ties in the way. The message from Argentina
was sent In response to a protest from Carransa
against the Latin-American countries taking any
part in the consideration of Mexican affairs. It
tan hardly bo construed as a recognition of Car
ransa aa the head or the Mexican naUon, but K
almost amounts to a hand-off pledge from
Argentina's amiability may be explained In
two ways. On the ground of racial sympathy,
II Is easy to see why the South American repub
lic would be inclined to side with the Mexicans
ia any question bcweu thctu and the United
Ctates. A further,and more potent reason may
be found in the history of Argentina. , Twenty
five years ago that country was in almost the
seme condition aa Mexico is today.; It ws torn
by factions, its army deposed one president and
its navy another; its coinage was debased and
its fiat currency was worthless, its industry and
Its agriculture languished and Its outlook wis.
most gloomy. Strong men arose and brought
order and tranquility to the country and made
it one of the prosperous nations of the world.
President de la Plaxa may feci that Mexico
should be allowed the same chance to work out
its salvation as was given Argentina, but where
vlll Mexico find a man like Luis Saenz-Pena to
place his country on the solid ground of
political and social peace and good order?
Argentina has perhaps voiced the sentiment
of all the Latin-American governments and
given us a peep behind the scenes at the confer
ence but thla decision will very likely be re-'
cetved dubiously by Americans.

ONE of the minor benefits which hare accrued to
thla country from the great war la the fact that
Knsllsh writers are too buay Just at present to
produce any new comment on The American Voice
It la the unanimous opinion of the chronic Ensll.h
that the voice of the American woman la the mot
dlstresalng defect In our civilisation. Ho earnestly
have the Engllah dear rl bed Its snrill, hiHh-w.iuu
penetration, and ao eadly have they deplored the fact
that a train with an American woman In It needa no
locomotive whistle, that many Amerloan writers hae
become stampeded and are wasting perfectly good
white paper made from our rapidly disappearing
forests on the same subject We desire to rtee as
many feet aa possible and declare here and now that
the voice of the American woman la worth all the
feminine volcca of the rest of the world put together.
It la the voice which called the early asltler home
from the fields when the marauding Indian appeared,
and It la the voice which kept the colonlate heartened
up and encouraaed when the enemy's cannon were
making a most terrifying racket. It may be pitched a
little high In the mouth rafters, and It might be Im
proved for purely esthetic purposes by the use of
emery powder, orange marmalade and a rat-tall file,
but It la the voice which has called five generations
of American boys home to dinner, haa aent them safely
to school, and has taught them more morality than
baa been dreamed of In the effete recesses across
We freely admit that the American woman uses
ner voice with the muffler cut out a great deal, and
that In a foreign picture gallery ahe cuasea convulsive
shudders among the worshipers of an antique civilisa
tion whenever ahe addreasea a personal friend a few
hundred yards away. But kindly remember that the
American woman a voice la a practical, useful Institu
tion, built to cops with the stress and neceaaltles of
the time. The American woman has spoken to the
American man and he has heard to the extent of giv
ing her the ballot, revising marriage, divorce, and
property laws, and giving her a legal staUon consider
ably above the animate of the fielda; whereas, the
Englishwoman, having- used her creamy, 'pluahyvel

with no effect at all, haa given it up In disgust and

OMAHA, Aug. 10. To the Editor of The
Bee: : Recently la your great paper ap
peared a very Interesting sketch about
the llfework of that Irish patriot, the In
ventor of the submarine, John P. Hol
land, who-dled in Newark one. year ago
two weeks after the outbreak of the
European war. .
The Fenian Brotherhood, of which he
waa a member,, was organized a decade
after the artificials made famine in Ire
land, when 1.250,000 (million and a quarter)
of the Irish people died of hunger, It
was an organisation of the moat mili
tant Irish nationalists. It purpose was
the achievement of Irish Independence
and tho establishment of an Irish re
History and tradition tell the story ot
the Fenian movement Hangings, Im
prisonments, a raid Into Canada, etc.
Mlohael Davltt Charles S. Parnell, Jo
seph 3. Bigger and others organised the
Land league. It waa 'a moral auaalon
organisation, that had tor Ita motto, "The
Land for the People." Its platform was
large enough and strong enough for every
Irishman to Stand upon no matter what
his Ideas or views were how to free Ire
The men and women In Ireland today
are just as loyal and true to the old
cause as their anceaters were in the days
of , Vore. notwithstanding that thuir
faithleaa leaders betrsyed them by turn
ing somersault, thereby becoming recruit
ing sergeants for the "Crown."
My purpose Is to sdjust the phraseology
of this letter to see If I can arouse the
stagnant blood in the veins of my Irish
American fellow sovereigns. It Is my In
tention, too, to submit a few pertinent
questions and thereby put them on record
as te whether they have become Angli
cised and de-natlonallsed.
Irlah-Amnricana, have you anything
tangible under contemplation to assist
the men-ln-tbe-gap In Ireland? The time
Is ripe to adopt some plan of action.
Clog-dancing, turkey-trotting and tan
going produce no satisfactory impression
oa the enemy.
England treats with contempt Irish pub
He opinion expressed In words alone.
What has become of that noisy crowd
that was everlastingly shouting "Eng
land's difficulty ia Ireland's Opportun
ity?" It seems, aluoe the Boer war, that
old adage ia forsaken.
Irish Americana of Omaha, a rare op
portunity presents Itself to you.
The first secretary of the old Land
league now Ilea In a nameless grave in
the Holy Sepulcher cemetery. Ilia name
Thomas Brennan. I believe that It would
be a good Idea to send Mr. Brennan'a
mortal remains to Ireland to be deposited
In Olasnevln cemetery along with his
chieftain Parnell, John O'Mahoney, O'
Connell, O' Donovan Rossa and others..
There will be men from the Nore, from
the Bulr and the Shannon to meet his
remains when they arrive ai the Old cove
of Cork, and escort them on to Dublin.
The sending home of the mortal remalna
of this noble exile at thla time will be a
severe rebuke to the recruiting sergeants
and It will arouse and stimulate the Irish
race to action the world over.
The Fall of Warsaw
Cleveland Flaln Dealer: Military mira
cle have been performed In thla war;
but a general German advance Into the
heart of Russia la almc-ot beyond Imag
ination. For the present therefore. It
la likely that the victors will be content
to rest after they hsve taken Rig. How
long they will rest, and to what ad
vantage they will turn their recent con
quests are questions beyond conjecture.
Boston Transcript: Within the German
empire the kaiser will more than ever be
the symbol of the new Germany. The
people will more than ever believe that
that new Germany Is to take concrete
shape and expand to greater power and
strength than ever before 1r Teutonic
history. As for the half-million German
dead so bravely fallen even their rela
tives on a day like thla will be satisfied
that the gain is worth the loss.
Baltimore American: Those who have
been disposed to predict that the Rus
sians will be virtually eliminated until
next spring are counting without their
host For ahould the Ruaslan army es
cape, the taking of Warsaw will be of
no more strategic advantage than waa
the taking of Washington of military
worth to the British In the war of 1S1J.
It has strong sentimental Interest but
In a war In which sentiment plays so
little part upon tho field this counts for
New York Post: The moral effecta of
the German achievement are equally un
mistakable, whether we consider putjlio
opinion at home, among the enemy na
tions, or among neutrals. It la all very
well for the Duma, the Chamber of Depu
ties, and the House of Commons to utter
new vows of determination to carry the
war through to victory. The effect on
popular opinion of specific and tangible
victory or defeat must count Tho Allies
today are visibly under the depressing
Influence of the unbroken tide of Teuton
success In the last three months.
Bt.. Louis Republic: The Warsaw cam
paign will live In the memory of the
race while men peruse the pages of mili
tary history. The full story of the re
sistance of the Russians to the German
advance haa yet to be told. But the
tremendous concentration of power that
battered down . the guard ot the white
rsar while the force in the west held
at bay the massed power of England and
France Is one of the most impressive ex
hibitions of human courage, human will,
and human organizing ability which his
tory shows. Truly we are living In an
age in which the history Is In the making.
