Mr. Wilson and the Kaiier.
Negotiations between President Wilson and
Kaiser Wllhelm are again tinder such tension as
may result In breaking diplomatic relations If
r-ne or the other does not yield.
Mr. Wilson made a flat statement of his
position on the sinking of the Lusltanla, to
which the American people gave almost unani
mous assent. This wss followed by an even
more positive declaration of the views of the
American government. To these communica
tions the kaiser's spokesmen have returned
evasive and unsatisfactory replies. Not only
have the notes from Wilheltnetrasne failed to
Meet squarely the request of Washington for
disavowal of and assurance against a repetition
of the acts complained of, but the sinking of the
Arable came either as a gross blunder or a de
liberate defiance of the United States.
Following the Dumba incident, which Vienna
deigned to notice only when compelled to save
Its ambassador from possible expulsion. Count
von Bernstorff was clothed with extraordinary
powers to represent the kaiser's government In
final negotiations as to the Arabic. It was
suggested from Washington that this would lead
to a disavowal In such a form as would be en
tirely satisfactory, but the event shows that the
Kaiser's ambassador, to use a slang phrase, has
been merely "stringing" the president along.
Germany, and the rest of the world, must be
astonished at the halting of the president and
his administration In upholding tbe rights of
American cltlirns at home and kbroad. "Roll

will not help the president out of his predica
ment. He must follow up his former pronounce
ment or back down entirely.
Ak-Sar-Ben Crowds and Traffic.
Omaha Is accustomed to entertaining large
numbers of visitors each day In tbe year, with
great throngs during the Ak-Sar-Ben period, and
l as always met the problems of caring for them
v lth success. The dual attraction at this time
I'M resulted In the presence of an unusual num
ber of visitors In the city, making the crowds
on tha streets especially dense. Omaha's broad
street! and wide sidewalks reduce the possible
congestion of traffic to the minimum, but at a
time Ilka this, more than usual care must be ex
ercised. It is incumbent on pedestrians and
drivers alike to show some consideration for
each other at all times, but when the traffic is
to heavy they must give even greater assistance
la tbe effort to avoid accidents. "Safety first"
Is always a good rule, and It Is doubly a duty
during Ak-Sar-Ben week.
Tha Stimulus of Debt
The mountain-high debts that have been
piled up In all of the warring countries of
Europe, and are every day being piled up still
higher, sre causing much wonderment as to how
tLe people of these countries can be expected to
otand up under the colossal burden. With such
a staggering load to carry folka are asking bow
can these nations recover lost ground, and make
r rogress even with an uninterrupted period of
AH history teaches, however, that the most
debt-burdened people of the world have also
teen the most progressiva people of the world,
and that tha accumulation of tremendous public
debts has always been accompanied by the most
rapid and marvelous advance of civilization. In
other words, It would seem that the burden of
debt operates, In fact, as ft stimulus and not as
a death-knell to Industry, not only with individ
uals, but also with nations.
When France at the close of the war of 1871
was compelled to pay an Indemnity to Germany,
the amount was so great, according to the stan
dards of the time, that It was considered ex
tremely doubtful whether It could take on such
an obligation. But Its payment bad no notice
able effect upon the progress of the French re
public, and French Investments abroad, as well
as at home, continued to Increase right along.
Tbe United Btates came out of our civil war with
a gigantic war debt, but the country never halted
In Its forward march. Industrially, commercially
and financially, although, of course, it might
possibly have gone along faster had it been free
from the debt drawback.
When peace Is restored, the necessity will
rrst upon the European countries to dig them
selves out from under tha debt load they are
shouldering, and If history repeats Itself, the
experience will be a stimulus to extraordinary
exertion to meet the new conditions.
Forehanded for Once.
Even the British learn by experience, and
in the present Balkan crisis they appear to be
putting some Of their recently acquired knowl
edge to use. Lashed by the Manchester Guar
dian and other Influential Journals of the
United Kingdom, the British government haa
taken such steps' as will forestall In aome degree
a repetition of the embarrassment experienced
with Turkey. While the voice that has spoken
to Bulgaria Is the voice of Russia the hand that
1 olds the sword Is that of England. That Greece
has been prepared for entrance Into such war
like activities as the quadruple entente might
desire Is made plain by the landlnr of French
troops at Salonlkl, well timed with the declara
tion of war. In the meantime, Bulgaria must at
once declare which aide It proposes to take, or
recede from Ita warlike attitude entirely, at
pains of having war declared against it by Rus
sia. That Bulgaria categorically denies all that
haa been alleged of Its activities dors not weigh
in the present aspect of the case. The Allies are
not so much concerned as to the entrance of
Bulgaria Into the war aa they are to secure an
other position from which to attack the central
powers. This way is provided through Macedonia
and Serbia. The movement presages merely a
little wider projection of the all-absorbing strat
ify of tha war, and does not promise much for
its early settlement.
The University of Kansas adds one more to
tbe many beneficial uses of corn. Laboratory
tests brought an oil which gives to pie crusts
tha golden glow that mothers produced with
Urd. With the pie belt annexed to his domain
King Corn haa ample warrant for stepping high.
The September statement of the national

Are the Negro
Women Making Good?
Mrs. Beoker T. WeeaJngtoa la The Xnderandaaw
A FEW weeka aao, I was returning from a coun
try school, where I had gone to help the teacher
ra.e money to finish tha sthool house, which had
been begun inme two or three years ago. It waa a
cold, dark afternoon and one would have expecteJ
every woman, at leant every country woman, to
cloee up to the flredlde. Country people love to stay
near their haarthatonea, at leaat my country folks Co.
But aa I drove on alowly, Topay, my little blacK
home, who takes me all about among my country
friends, pricked up her eara. I llatened a moment arid
In the distance 1 heard the ft, plaintive tones of a
doten or mots women, aa they aang, as no other
women' can sing:
Pon t rail tha roll till I sret thar.
l"m t call the toll till I get thnre.
Oh Mary, oh Martha, don t call the roll till 1 net there.
I want to answer to mv namo,
I want to annoer to m' name.
Oh Mary, oh Maitiia, 1 want to answer to my name.
The country woman expreaies heraelf generally In
song, whether ahe la sad or happy. This afternoon
theaa women were ahall I say happy? well, they
were content. Once Inalde the building, I was not
long In finding out that I was In a woman's club, a
real club, where subjects of vital Interest to a com
munity were Lelng dlacuaaed, not something theee
women had read about, for not a single one of them
rould read an oidlnary book or newapaper, not a sub
ject that aome lecturer had dlscuaaed In their church,
for lecturers do not usually spend their time with this
sort of people. In thla eort of a community if the
only would) but these women, some young, mora
older, had for that meeting the subject: "How t
makn hard water soft" This Is a limestone district.
These women work In the fields until Friday night
or Saturday noon, when they go down to the creek
to do their week's washing, and the hardness of tha
water la of the greateat Interest to them. It ha-l
set them to thinking, and where a community of
women begirt to think there Is sure to be action, the
result of which will be their general intellectual de
velopment. There are M0 or mora mothers in tha little town
where I live who hold four meetings a month, at
which any one who feels like It sings and any onu
who la moved by the spirit prays; any one speaks
upon tha subjeat given. It Is a free speech meeting.
At one of the recent meetings the question waa thrown
out. "How many little babies have bean born In my
community In the laat twelve montha and where are
theyT" Another waa "How shall I keep tha affection
of my huahandT" One woman laughed good-natured! f
and aald: "We women ought to go to all tha conven
tions and things where our husbands go. They travel,
they read, they study and we should do this, too, or
fall behind them." Another one spoke up and said:
"Don't let ua be ao tired all of tha time when ha
comes home." One of these women has bought a
nice four-room cottage, painted It, haa a good cow,
a good horse and buggy, always makes her own
garden, and more than all, haa remade her husband
from a cobbler Into a real respectable carpenter.
Others of this organisation are following her example.
Where will It all end? No one cwn tell, except to see
that the revolution haa begun, regeneration has set In
and these women who have gone through trials and
trllilatlons are going to take their atand at no dis
tant day with the great American Womanhood, and
share their part of the responsibility In Increasing
the nation's efficiency.
There are more than 1,000,000 negro women tn this
country, on tha plantations. In small towns, and In
the rl'les. We are aetdom heard from, and not always
considered as a factor In the solution of the great
problem In which our husbands and brothers figure
so largely. The home and the family Is the starting
point Since the spirit of the age .demands that the
mother aliotild have a wide knowledge of all matters
pertaining to the moral, spiritual and Intellectual
training of her children, we women must meet the
demands by making our organizations avenues ot
help to the. better way.
We club women have made a beginning In laying
a foundation aa a means to an end. Tha work ot
such organisations as I hsve described Influences not
only the women directly connected with them, but
reaches out to the homes that are not represented In
clubs. The Incidents given above are typical of the
awakening and growing activities of our women all
over this country for our national association Is
made up of women from every state In tha union.
The women ot esrh state direct their energies toward
some particular local need. Indiana women have for
aome time been maintaining a tuberculosis camp;
New Tork women, an old folks' home. The colored
women of Alabama, some years ago, founded at alt
Melira a boys' reformatory, for which they ralaed out
of their meager stores $2,000 each year until, through
the energetic lobbying of three women's clubs that
had worked hardest for It, the state waa persuaded
to take It over. But I wonder If there are still those
who ask: "Are negro women making good?"

LINCOLN. Oct t To the Editor of
The Ilea: Thla is to answer a letter
written by V. A. Bradahaw of North
Platte. I wonder what this man's idea
is of Judging an average man's standing?
There la alwaya aome old stool pigeon
sitting around the dejoU watching the
Incoming and outgoing trains and when
they see a traveling man come to town,
they make the remark that there la one
more horacthief at large. That la for
the simple reason that most traveling
men are a good natured sort, pleasant
and willing to give any man or woman
any Information they deem necersary.
Just to give you a little Illustration of
what some people think ot a traveling
man. As I waa coming lows off of the
Hpauldlng branch Friday morning on the
early train from Oolumbua, there was
a real feeble old lady going to Washing
ton. Kan. Fhe waa routed from Colum
bus to Lincoln, by the way of the Bur
lington, fihe had traveled but very little,
and was a little worried in regard to
making connections at Columbus. 1 told
her to get off on the left hand side of
the coach and step Into Green's transfer
and ha would take her to the Burlington
station In plenty of time.
There were two other women on the
train that had the appearance of ordinary
Intelligence, who spoke up and said, "We
are going to Lincoln." My answer to them
waa, "vary well." In the course of the
next five minutes these two particular
women got their heads totietler snd
started talking about the fresh traveling
men. Their Idea of me at that time was
that I wanted to flirt with them, and
break Into a conversation. The average
traveling man haa more Intelligence than
to flirt with every woman on the train, or
on the streets of towns he makes.
Whenever you meet a traveling man
that Is married, he Is not ashamed of It
He la willing to take hla wife out on the
territory with him at any time or any
place and let her meet all his friends. I
would much rather trut my wife with
a dozen or fifteen traveling men on a
trip from here to Chicago, than I would
the average old stool pigeon, and a few of
the deacons In the church.
I can actually name at leaNt six or
eight so-called ohurch members and Chris
tians, that will snssk Into a saloon from
the back door or aide entrance, Jtuit to
buy a drink and have no one know It.
But when a traveling man wants a drink,
he goes right in the front door and buys
a drink, and right straight out the front
door onto the street again, regardless
of who sees him.
In regard to the work "Billy" Sun
day Is doing. I think ho is doing a
great deal of good. Hla Idoa of conversion
Is not my type, but nevertheless when a
soul Is converted. It 1st one more saved.
1 have never heard "Billy" Sunday, but
my Intentions are that I shall In the near
INTERESTED TRAVELING MAN.
Another Travetlnw Man'a Answer.
GRAND ISLAND, Neb.. Oct 4.-To the
Editor of The Bee: As a traveling man
and a resident of Nebraska for the last
thirty-eight years, I wish to correct the
gentleman from North Platte. Mr. V. A,
Thla man seems to be quite wise as to
the habits of tha "96 per cent" sinners, as
ha calls us. and poses as a saint himself,
without any record as a prophet or ultra
Such ' knocks can never promote the
sensible and moral side of life, and such
knockers are, as a rule, far from true
pictures of a saint The traveling man, as
a rule. Is for facts, truths, common sense
and right, and refuses to take every
grafter's word for the vital things of
life, and because he differs from some
other man as to the truth of the Bible
story as given by "Billy" Sunday, or any
one else. Is no sign he Is a degenerate.
Ha seems to think traveling a crime,
and those who engage In It little less than
his Satanic majesty. However, Mr. Brad
ahaw, you have much to learn as to the
real character of the traveling man. We
have to combat Just such Ignorant fel
lows as you every dsy, and but for ua
you'd still be using a cradle In your
wheat But for us you would be waiting
three months for an answer to your east
Who la it helps the cripples ot your
streets? Who buys the lead pencils and
shoestrings? Who maintains the best
hotels? Who supports their families bet
ter? Who more loyal to the city in which
he lives? Who put the Bible In all the
leading hotels? Who is the advanoe agent
of prosperity, and the student ot pro
gressive business methods? ,
Many traveling men are students and
thinkers, and do not put In their entire
time playing with tha little fifty-two
pasteboard cards, and they are no more
H per cent sinners than any other class,
ot men. G. M. PALMER.
"Billy" Saadar's Detractors. '
COUNCIL BLUFFS, la.. Oct 4.-TO the
Editor ot The Bee: The attitude of a
number of people toward Mr. Sunday
seems strange. Paul says In Romans 14,
"Who art thou that Judge another man's
servant?" Mr. Sunday muat feet highly
complimented when he hears himself
compared (even unfavorably) to Jesus.
He la criticised for calling himself the
ambassador ot Christ But we are all
ambassadors of Christ in some measure
if we endeavor to carry Hla massage to
Mr. Sunday says he hss a quick tamper.
He does not say he Is perfect But he
does say if he didn't live according to
what he preaches the "boose gang" would
show him up. Consider that ha has
known poverty, hard work, the height of
success as a ball player (a thing In Itself
enough to turn the head of the ordinary
individual) and now of being the great
est evangelist of his day, and with this
the fsct that he la desperstely in earneet
Try to see things from his viewpoint and
realise that be has been the most power
ful factor in cleaning up of many cities.
How can women say one word against
If after Mr. Sunday is gone all Omaha
and auburba could meet for religtoua serv
ice and plan to help the alck and poverty
stricken, how glorious thst would be.

o Monopoly nf Vllearss.
COLUMBUS. Neb.. Oct 4.-TO the Ed
itor of The Bee: It may be that I am
foolish to rvrly to teh unkind remarks
ot V. A. Bradahaw regarding the travel
ing salesman. Nevertheless, that he may
be Informed allow me to say I have
known traveling men without honor, low
minded, spendthrifts. I have known
them to sacrifice affection to lust and
to bring dishonor and shame to ence
happy, virtuous homes. I have known
traveling men that were profligate and
thoroughly unreliable and entirely de
void of principle, but all of the men of
this class do not obtain positions on the
; road. I am aware that there are di-
honcst, low-minded, unprincipled mer
chanta. I have known doctors, lawyers,
farmers, mechanics, bankers, politicians
and nu n In Ah and honomole Pv among
as vile and devoid of principle and as
familiar with vice as any traveling sales
man could possibly be. In all the walks
of life there are to be found villains, but
Ism glad that In the store, office, farm,
shnp, factory and elsewhere we have
magnificent, capable, cultured men who
I0V4 God and man, and are Interested In
every good work. I am glad there are
physicians aho bring health to the sick
and hope of Immortality to the dying
and consolation to the bereaved. I am
glad there are lawyers who fight for Jus
tice, and editors who stand for right
eousness. I am glad there are honest
farmers, merchants, mechanics, bankers
ana politicians, and I am glad that the
traveling salesmen as a class will av
erage with any of these for virtue. Integ
rity, culture and Christian character.
Since "Billy" Sunday came to Omaha
I have he-rd him deliver three moat won
derful, wholesome sermons, and I wilt
say of him that I consider him a great
scholar and orator, that he la logical and
convincing. I believe he is sincere and
pure, and that the Lord Is with him. I
am a traveling salesman and have been
on the road for over thirty years. Mr.
Sunday's traducers are not all traveling
salesmen, and I think It you will Investi
gate you will find that the few traveling
men who oppose him are misinformed or
are Interested In the things that Mr. Sun
day condemns. Therefore I consider the
unkind things Mr. Bradahaw aald ot the
traveling salesmen as a class to be false
and should be retracted.
