The Lynching' of Leo M. Frank.
The cowardly lynching of Leo M. Frank by
a Georgia mob, culminating one of the most
flagrant outrages ever perpetrated by the in
citement of passion and prejudice, must cause
e shudder in the breast of every right-minded
That nothing would satisfy these Georgia
outlaws but the life of Frank, taken either by
legal execution or by murderous violence, has
been plain for some time.
It was undoubtedly the Intimidating influ
ence of this mob spirit that brought about the
conviction of Frank by a cowed Jury, and pre-
ented him from securing the new trial which
The same mob spirit drove Governor Blaton
cut of .the state for conscientiously exercising

death sentence to life imprisonment.
The blood thirst of the mob next Invented
the fiction of Frank's plans to escspe from
prison, and set a fellow convict on him with a
butcher knife, Imbued with the idea that killing
Frank would earn for him bis own liberty.
And. finally, this attack having failed of Its
deadly purpose, the prison guards, paralysed by
the mob fever, have been willingly overpowered
by assailants who knew Just what gate to enter,
and where to find their vlotlrn In the dark.
The whole affair of Frank's trial, condemna
tion and taking off Is such a travesty of Justice,
and such a hideous horror, that people can
hardly believe It to be an actual twentieth cen
tury occurrence in a so-called civilized commu
nity which, however, ia not civilized because
canker-eaten by race prejudice.
1 While Frank is now forever beyond the
engeful malice of his persecutors, It will take
eternal time to obliterate the foul blot upon the
state of Georgis.

Whence Came the Tip?
Several weeks ago a former member of The
Bee staff, now connected with a big eastern
paper, stopped here for a day on his way to
China; soon sfter he passed through the city
another former Bee man, now with the Asso
ciated Press, came along, hurriedly recalled

also on the way to China. Neither had any
definite Information to give out other than some
big news was expected to break In China soon,
end they named some other well known war
correspondents who had been withdrawn from
Europe and sent to the Flowery Kingdom. At
the moment China was prostrate before Japan,
and apparently Its future of vassalage was fixed.
It did not hold forth a very promising field for
'big news," especially with the maelstrom still
swirling in Europe.
Now comes the word from Peking that Tuan
Shi Kal is considering the propriety of immedi
ately proclaiming himself as emperor instead of
president, and it looks as if something of an
ebullition in the teapot were actually commenc
ing. What would; be interesting to know is.
Who passed along the Up that sent those experi

by a great editor as tho faculty of "knowing Just

Cotton ai Contraband.
Another, and serious, complication is
brought into the muss of our slready troubled
intercourse with Europe through the action of
the Triple Entente allies declsring cotton con
traband of war. Thla course has been threat
ened tot some time past, and cotton cargoes
have been extensively Interfered with by the
British navy, although settlement has been
made so far for all that has been confiscated.
2 he new order will have the effect of rendering
more than ever difficult the question of pay
ment for cotton cargoes hereafter seized. The
British authorities have pointed out that ship
ments of this staple to neutral ports of northern
Europe have far exceeded the normal require
ments of those countries, and, therefore, invited
the suspicion that the ultimate destination of
the excess might be to sn enemy consumer.
A few days ago it was suggested that Great
Britain might possibly buy the entire cotton
surplus of the United States, and make use of
it according to its fancy. This would have as
sured a certain market to the southern planters
and have relieved them of any occasion for un
due worry as to the disposal of their principal
crop. The action of the Allies will hardly have
popular approval in Dixie.
In the meantime, late estimates have placed
ine toiai oerman reserves of raw cotton at
noarly, if not quite.' 800.000 bales, which mean
a possible two million tons of nltro-cellulose
powder. The 'German government has Just

Tho Red Cross in War
Srtradier General O. A. Xevol
THE AMERICAN B.ED CROSS la In receipt or in
qulrle Indicating that there la a lack of under
standing In recud to relief work in time 01 war.
There I an International treaty, a yery explicit law,
s prealdnntlal proclamation, and duly promulgated
orders of tha War and Navy departments relating to
tha furnlnhlng of rolunteer aid to the sick and
wounded of armies In time of war. It apparently la
not fully realised that war relief work muat be sc-
compllehed. under definite regulations; that a preclmi
plan of action waa long ago adopted, and that a.
natton-wlde, officially recognlaed and chartered relict
organisation, with department dealgned to meet every
phaaa of war relief work, exlata. The conduct of war
la regulated by certain well established and recognized
rules that are uaually designated aa -the lawa of
war," which compi-lae tho rules, both written and un
written, for carrying on of war, both on land and at
sea. Ahould there ever come a time when the United
Ptatea would be Involved In war It would be Im
perative to enforce with the utmoat atiingency the
law, and the executive and departmental orders gov
erning the uee of the Red Croaa emblem and tho
functlona of the government' a chartered, aupervlaed
and ayatematlted volunteer relief aaaociatlon.
All volunteer aid muat come under tha direction of
the American Red Cross In auch a contingency to
carry out the obligations of tha United ftatce under
tha treaty ef Oeneva, to fulfill all requirements 1m
poaed by congress, to secure efficiency under central
ized authority and trained organisation in rloae af
filiation with the army and navy medical service, and
finally to aafagruard the American public against fraud
It should he understood that tha aurgeon generala
of the United States army and navy are appointed by
the president of tha United State to represent these
departments In relief work. They are members of tha
American Red Cross executive committee, and chair-
man and vice chairman, respectively, of the War Re
All accounts of the American Red, Croes ar re
quired by law to be audited by the War department
and an annual report, also required by law, detailing
the activities ef tha organisation, la made to congress
sy the chairman of the central committee. It may be
seen from this the the American Red Croaa ma
chinery would be set In motion st onoe and that Its
activities would be definitely co-ordinated with the
legislative and executive work of the government In
time of war. Merely as sn example of lta prepared
nwea In one branch of Its organisation, there are ,ona
enrolled American Red Cross graduate trained nurses
who have bean accepted by the War department as
the army nursing reserve corps. '
The War department and the Navy department
long ago formulated regulations governing completely
the duties and functions of the American National
Red Cross with reference to renderli aid to the
land and naval forces In time of actual or threatened
war. Tha sign of the Red Cross Is protected by law
and the fraudulent uaa thereof Is punishable by fins
or Imprisonment or both.

army, stated briefly tha relations that muat exist be
tween the military departments of tha government
and volunteer relief In the event of war. General

proclamation, stating In effect that the American Red
Cross la the only volunteer society autuorued by this
government to render aid to Its land and naval forces
In time of war; and that any other society desiring to
render similar assistance can do so only through the
American National Red Cross: that to comply with
the requirements of article 10 of the International Red

OMAHA. Aug. 17 To the Editor .if The
Bee; In the following sentences the head
of a local art organization gives his
standard of art: ."The true measure of a
painting Is what It will sell for. If J. I'ler

a painting by some artist, it would estab
lish that Artist's worth; It would show
that he ia a If) nrtlet"
If Oman r.hould let itxcif lie advertised
by the foregoing art sentiment It would
become the laughing stock of the entire
country. ?uch a ststement is ultra com
mercial. Is Omaha going to go Into
the art dealers' business and realise a
profit on Its puixhaaea, or Is It going to
purchane plctui-es on their Hrtlstlc merit?
Art can neei bo judged from the money
standpoint. We uppoj that Rembrandt

If a lawyer makes a brilliant speech, It
does not necessarily make all the rest of
his speeches scintillate. Jealousy has been
attributed ss tho cause of adverse
criticism of recent art purchases. This Is
manifestly unjust. Insofar as we know no

artist with pictures for sale, or who is

WISNER, Neb., Aug. 17. To the Editor
of The Bee: For many months the news
papers have been full of an agitation for
the suppression of the export of muni
tions ef war to the allies, the idea being
to thereby bring the war to a apeedy
close. Kindly allow me to present a way
much more effective than any that I
have yet seen proposed, and so simple
that It Is a wonder that the German
American union hss not thought of It.
Cotton Is the basis of nearly all modem
smokeless powder, both for big and little
guns. It takes an average 'of perhaps
four or five pound of cotton for the dis
charge of every shell. The Scientific
American, In a recent estimate, places
the dally consumption of cottoa for the
manufacture of smokeless powder In Ger
ir.any at 1.000,000 pounds. It Is probable
that at present America la the chief
source of the German cotton supply.
So, until congress can meet and pass the
necessary legislation to suppress the ex
port of cotton to Germany, let all the
people who fervently beslre to bring
about peace, turn in and buy up the
available supply of cotton in this coun
try and either store it away or burn It
up so thst Germany will not get any of
it When Germany's cotton Is all gone,
Its guns will soon cease to roar and peace
will be In sight

As to Motorcycle Riders.
NEW YOHK, Aug. 1. To the Editor
of The Bee: I have read with a great
deal of Interest the statements made by
an Omaha probation officer and also by
James C. Vsn Avery, vice president of
the Omsha Motorcycle club, on both sides
of the question, of whether motorcycles
lead more girls to ruin than do automo
It seems to me that an argument of this
sort is foolish. There is not a doubt In
the world but what there Is a certain
proportion of folks in all classes of so
ciety who are prone to do the things they
should not do. Whether the proportion
Is higher In the class that ride In luxuri
ous four-wheeled vehicles than It Is
among those who ride on the simpler and
less expensive motorcycle Is not the ques
tion. Certain It is that In either case
this element Is small, though Its work Is
ef a sort that brings both classes of
vehicle Into dtarepute.
It Is up to the real self-respecting folks
who take their pleasure on the motor
cycle or in the automobile to cleanae
their ranks of those who use the vehicle
to further ends which are far removed
from our standard of morality. Breaking
for the motorcyclist, or for the 20,000 of
them who are members of the Federation
of American Motorcyclists, I wish to say
that that organisation Is doing every
thing Its its power to get rid ef this un
desirable element. The members who are
