Rebuilding American Merchant Marine.
In his letter to the president, transmitting
the report of the Pan-American Financial con
ference, Secretary McAdoo presages the resub
mission of the democratic shipping bill to the
coming congress. Mr. McAdoo lays much stress
on the durability of Immediately Increasing the
f.eet under the American flag, that it may be
available for government use as part of the gen
eral defense plan. On this necessity he predi
cates his argument in support of the partial
ownership of such a fleet by the federal govern
ment. His contention Is that private capital will
not embark in shipping, because It can find more
profitable employment In other lines, and there
fore he urges some plan that will provide for
the Investment of a considerable sum of money
by the government In a merchant fleet. This
plan of the secretary of the treasury has not
ti et with the enthusiastic endorsement of men
who are actually concerned in maritime affairs,
sni la not llltely to receive more support in the
coming congress than it did In the last.
As an alternative plan, and one that seems
ftr more feasible, It Is proposed that the prefer
ential duty laws be re-enacted, and that Ameri
can bottoms be given the support that prevailed
during that time In the last century, when 80
Itr cent of American commerce overseas was,
carried on American bottoms. That this law
was effective, and that shipping did prosper un
"er It Is certain. It Is equally certain that to
give It another trial would cost very little. Ob
jections that It would Interfere with present
treaty agreements are met by the statement that
these treaties may be termlnted at the will ot
either party The almost assured fact that the ter
t ilnatlon of the European war will be followed
by the general readjustment of treaty agree
ments, makes It not only opportune, but almost
obligatory that the United States as far as pos
sible anticipate post-bellum conditions. In no
way may this be done more wisely than to ex
pedite the rehabilitation of America's ocean-going

"Lonesome" Life. on the Farm.
A speaker at a California irrigation con
gress says the reason that our country life is
breaking up is because It is too lonesome for
the farmer and his wife. In part, this statement
Is correct. But the proposition should have
been stated in the past tense. The farmer's
life was lonesome, but a generation has passed
since a coroner's jury In Dakota returned a
verdict that a settler, dead by his own hand, had
' come to his death through blue sky and bunch
Whatever conditions may prevail In Cali
fornia, and other outlying sections of the coun
try, nothing farther from Isolation could be well
conceived than the social situation of the
farmer in this section of the country, where the
leal agricultural operations of the world are
carried on. With th coming of the telephone,
the automobile, the phonograph and other
agents for the amelioration or a detached life,
the farmer has been enabled to take the "city"
home with him. Moreover, he is seldom more
than a pleasant half-hour's run by machine
from a moving picture show, and the neighbor
hood club has come to afford him plenty of op
portunity to evade anything like tedium for the
little time he can take away from work in a
As to the busy season, on a modern farm it
lasts the year around. The difference is it
doesn't take all the farmer's time. He adapts
his business to a schedule that is adjusted by
the application ot machinery to the accomplish
ment of tasks that once were toilsome, and
finds that he has plenty of opportunity to enjoy
the good things as well as the toll or life. Suc
cess on the farm is only to be achieved by un
remitting Industry, the same aa in other call
ings, this Industry being no longer the drudgery
or past days, but work scientifically directed and
certainly rewarded. Nowhere in all the world
la life more real and nowhere does It. hold more
rf Inspiration than on a modern farm. The
farmer Is not lonely, he's just busy.
Way for Mr. Underwood.
Democratic wiseacres at Washington are
busy organizing the senate committee on finance
to niaae a place for Oscar W. Underwood, who
will enter the august body as senator from Ala
bama when congress reconvenes In December.
Just who is to retire to provide the necessary
vacancy on this coveted committee has not yet
been determined, but it Is hinted that Shlvely ot
Indiana or Stone of Missouri will graciously stea
down and allow the great revenue producer from
the southland to have the same prominence In
the senate that he had In the house. It Is now
admitted by the democrats that the revenue laws
will need serious attention. Even the most
obtuse could see this when the deficit ror the
fiscal year 19li on August 31 amounted to more
than 131.000.000, or a little more than half a
million a day. This presages a final deficit
close to 1180.000,000 for the year, a sura that
must make even a democrat reHect and wonder
if hla party Is on the right track. That Is one
reason why they want Underwood on the senate
finance committee, so he may assist In devising
new forms of "war" taxea to meet the current
expense of running the government', at peace
with all the world. '
The mystery of the war alarms and Invasion
scares so frequent In the east is now satisfactorily
explained. "It is distressingly clear," says a let
ter writer In the New York Post, "that a large
percentage of braluy people are afflicted with
very defective co-ordination la the working of
ttelr psycho entltlea, whether from the gang
lionic renters of the cerebral contex, or from the
lasal ganglia." In the presence of such an af
fliction, sympathy muffles the scoffer.

story entitled "Light Is Thrown on Bond

England for this bond I was not aware
that be had supported Governor More

EN ROUTE, BEATRICE, Neb., Sept IS.
-To the Lditor of The nee: I waa an
admirer of "Billy" Sunday for a number
of years; in fact, I would drive overland
or ride on the cara many mllea to hear
him preach and for the opportunity to
do personal work among tha hundreds
But the time came when Mr. Sunday
went too far in abuse, slang and vulgarity
and I could not listen to Mr. Sunday
without leaving disgusted, and being
driven further away from God, rather
than drawn closer.
Why the preachers of Omaha will per
mit the pulpit to become a vaudeville
stage, with "Billy" Sunday tha feature
not I can't understand, and I am only
one of thousands that la asking the same
question. As an actor, he la great; aa a
preacher, a failure, for ha preaches
"Billy" Sunday and not Jeaua Christ.
If any vaudeville performer on any
stage would use the language auch
slang, such abuse, such vulgarity and
expressions with double meanings they
would be hooted off the stage, arrested
and fined by the board of censorship.
Yet the ministers of Omaha, the finest
board of censorship that can be gotten
together, permit Mr. Sunday to have
full swing, to say what he pleases, and
to sit In their seats, laugh at hla show
and say "amen." It's a disgrace to what
Every God-fearing christian reads with
shame the remarks Mr. Sunday made on
Christian Science and Mary Baker Eddy.
"Every knock Is a boost," and this is
another boost for Christian Science.
Aa a traveling man I have traveled
from New York to San Francisco, and
have heard of (and seen many) the heal
ing of every known disease through the
understanding of Christian 6clence.
' I have never heard of anyone being
healed at a "Billy" Sunday revival or
by reading any of hla sermons. The
command of Jesua to hla disciples wes:
"As ye go, preach, saying tho kingdom of
heaven ia at hand; heal the sick, cleanse
the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils;
freely ye have received; freely give."
I have traveled many mllea since read
ing last Monday's Bee and talked to
hundreds on this subject and the proof
of It is that the public at large la grow
ing disgusted with the uncalled-for abuse,
vulgarity and slang of "Billy" Sunday.
