The adjuntDMsi of the dispute wth Ger many - qbmarlne warfare leaves the United males free to take up with Great Britain the question of Its Interference with American commerce on the high seas. This matter has been pending for many months, post poned on several occasions because of the more Immediate German problem, and baa reached a stage that make some eort of understanding Imperative. By the simple expedient of an order In council, concurred in by ita allies, the Brit ish government has undertaken to abrogate or modify the rules laid down for commerce In time of war to a degree that literally makes the high Kca an Knglish lake. Presumption has been substituted for conclusive proof, and every doubt that might exist is resolved beforehand in favor of the British contention. This condition Is In tolerable. No one disputes the charge that Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Holland are carrying on a considerable traffic with Germany and Austria and that quite a lot of American goods have found their way to a German desti nation through the neutral porta of Europe. This does not give Great Britain the right to stop all American traffic with Scandinavian or Dutch porta. We are still permitted to sell ab solute contraband to customers not engaged in the war, without regard to the disposition made of these wares by the purchasers. If these buyers subsequently deal with the Germans, the com plaint Is against them and not against the Americans. So long as we are In the business of selling our surplus products, it Is not within the right of any nation to specify where and how we shall seek our customers. ; Secretary Lansing sayi the note will soon go forward to the British government, but does not give any Inkling as to its text. For the take of American dignity, it ought to be as plain spoken as were the notes to Germany. ...J i A Scandalous Situation. The controversy between State Treasurer Hall and Governor Morehead from which has developed the spectacle of the governor's depu ties and appointees lawlessly holding and. ex pending public money without passing It through the treasury must impress the taxpay ers of Nebraska with the need of reform that will give us business methods in the state's finances.- The enactment of what is known aa the "Gerdes law" to require deposit in the treas ury of all fees collected in the different depart ments of the state government la supposed to meet this demand, but we are now confronted with a flagrant disregard of that law as well as further Illustration that it is not fully effective for the purpose Intended. We know what would happen if this scan dalous situation with respect to the holding out of money from the state treasury should arise in any big private business corporation like a railroad, or an insurance company or a manu facturing enterprise. -Without a doubt a lot of people would lose their Jobs, and consider them selves lucky to escape prosecution for embezzle' raent No reputable business establishment would knowingly stand for that sort of dolnga for one moment. Is there any good reason why the finances of the state should be run more loosely than those of a business corporation? Certainly not. except that nothing- but incapacity can be ex pected from control of our stRte government by a democratic administration Impelled only by a hankering for partisanship and patronage. Shearing1 the Sheep. News from Wall atreet supports the conclu sion that the brokers there are making up for the time lost last year when the "shearing pent' of that great institution were closed, and that the "wool" crop is unusually heavy. An orgy of speculation has been, in progress for several weeks, and within the last few days has reached such proportions as to become a menace to the real business Interests of the country. This baa led the clearing house banks and allied organiza tions to take some steps with a view to check ing the debauch of gambling now in full awing. The danger of a panic is always present under conditions now prevailing and it is to avoid thta that the action Is taken. No legitimate purpose of commerce or industry is being served by the wild buying and selling on margins, betting the price will go up or down, while the certain ending ot the excitement in colapse, nnlesa It be otherwise brought to an end, la a serioua menace to business. For this reason, the most drastic means required to put a atop to the frenzy and to bring Wall street back to its normal state. will be justified by the service rendered. Neutrality Between Frier di. It now appeara that the landing of French troops at 8alonikt la In reality a' breach of Grecian neutrality against which a formal, if feeble, protest Is lodged by Premier Ventselos, JiiKt before he gave in his resignation because King Constantlne refused to endorse his war policy. It is well understood that the Allies, for strategical purposes need the open way through 'Macedonia to 8erblan borders. The diplomatic maneuvers preceding the present movement seemed to have slipped a cog somewhere. While Bulgaria made a feint several days ago, leading to the announcement that It had declared war on Serbia, this course has not yet been finally taken. In offset an ultimatum waa sent from Petrograd to Sofia, but here again an unex plained delay of twenty-four hours occurred. In the meantime the transports bearing the French troops were steaming along to Salon Ik I, and reached there on schedule time, but before the statesmen had the., stage com pint ely set and all things prepared tor the entrance of the soldiers on Grecian soli under the flag of France. It is not at alt likely then troops will now be re called, but rather they will be followed by others, even it the course does not comport en tirely with the high sounding professions of re spect for neutrality ot the weaker nations of Kurope. After all. what is neutrality among friend? No result of war la aurer at this moment than that the hitherto invincible defenses ot free trade In Great Britain will go down before the big drive for money. Political policies and party principles are submerged in war's greater stakes. Indirectly the overturn of the ancient economic shrine will be felt in the United States. The passing of British free trade aa a "horrible eiample" la our presidanlal campaigns robe the stump of a venerable thriller. Latest in Aerial Warfare . .

The 1-Yenoh or German ecotit aeroplane la not supposed to flsht at all; but the nrltlah ttlota are ordered to engage the enemy wherever Been. Aa a matter of fact, the French and Germane rely for offensive work chiefly on antl-alr craft artillery, which has not been perfected. I have seen both side (hooting and have watched one shell buret close to an aeroplane, only to aee the next one explode half a mile away.

To the Editor of th Bee: If our weather bureau would ask for a small appropriation tne a study of the upper atmosphere, the cause of the heavy rainfall and dro .ti years might be discovered. In 1901 the present writer began a study of these ci.d.tl'.ns and while no testa have been made, the fact appears evident that the temperature of the atmosttfiere far abov the earth surface has much to do with cloud and rain conditions. Primarily rain la caused by a cold current of air passing against a warm moisture-laden, current of air. Hence a chansre of twenty degree in the iuper atmosphere would make a great difference In the matter of rainfall. V Any person who has studied weather conditions has noticed that any of th planets cause a rise of temperature Just previous to the changes of .those planets. Thla phenomenon Is especially noticed In the moon rhangea, because of th quickness of thoee chanties. I have also noticed that magnetic conditions, caused from theee changes, affects the temper ature of th atmoslphere, regardless ot the sun. I roni the tact that the planets Haturn and Jupiter are so very large and far from the sun and earth, the magnetlo conditions cotisod from those planets ap proaches slower and continues much longer than similar magnetlo conditions of Mercury, Venue, Mars and the moon. The difference la a matter of the six and distance of the planets. For Instance, the planets Haturn and Jupiter come ln:j certain positions and for many months their magnetic Influence causes a rise f temperature In the upper atmosphere As soon as those planets pasa those posi tions, the temperature falls below tu normal, and a wet aaason is the result. A study of the p-v.lt.ona of Saturn and Jupiter with respect to the sun will go a long way toward the solution of the cauaea of the wet and dry years. Tlio years of ISM; '83, '94 and ' were e y similar to the yeara 1910, '11, '12, '13 ana '14, and those planets occupied th same position In those years. They are now In about the same position of 1SH0. They occupied the same position In 1SSI and 1902, both wet years. They arcupled the same position In WS6 and 1MB, both wet years. But the fact must be remembered that other' planets have similar magnetic forces, and those fovess may concur In opposition or conjunction with the forces of Saturn nnd Jupiter. If the earth's atmosphere were subject to the heat from the sun only, we might know exactly what each day of the year shall be from year to year. WALTER JOHNSON. Masle of the Itevlval. OMAHA. Oct a To the Editor of The Eee: We are having the Boston Sym phony Orchestra here for the avowed purpose of raining the musical taste of Omaha. Heaven knows It needs It A community that will go twice a day and be satisfied to sing at the Tabernacle such musical atrocities aa "Brighten the Corner Where You Are" and consider that muslo when tha hymn books of all th churches are full of noble examples of harmony free for the use of any one Is a reflection on the musical Intelligence of that community. To chronicle the arrival In town of fh author of that abominable substitute for music as If he had done something good Instead of committing a crime against aesthetics Is the limit. Of course, the grade of muslo fits the grade of language that "Billy" Sunday uses, but It Is a dis couraging outlook for the growth of In telligent musical appreciation In Omaha that such a maudlin traveaty on music should be taken at ita face value. The whole Sunday performance, muslo and all, is a reflection on the good taato and common aense of the community. ' "Those on the right aide will sing th first two lines. "Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle, tlnk, tlnk, tlnk.' Those on the left wlU sing the next two lines, 'Tinkle, tinkle, tinkle, tlnk. tlnk, tlnk.' The choir will sing the next two lines, 'Tinkle tinkle, tinkle, tink, tin, tlnk,' and the last twenty rows, a little late, but there Just the same, 'Tin kle, tinkle, tinkle, tlnk, tink, tink." Then Brother "Rody," who hatea himself so, will accompany the double-barrel piano with the chorus, "Umph, umph, umph, umph, umph, umph." It certainly Is an elevating musical per formance. . R. C, B. Iwteraatloaal Ethlc. MCCOOK. Neb., Oct. 1,-To the Editor of The Bee: Can there not be made a rational and satisfactory statement of International ethics that will satisfy the conscience of America and th world as to the selling of supplies by us to the warring nations? I think there can. We have enjoyed a long term of peace and trade intercourse with .all the world. Needlea to remark the European war arose from no acts of ours and called' for no participation. We very properly pub lished our neutrality to the world and went about our concerns. We have con tinued to sell our products to ail cus tomers presenting themselves at our counters, totally without discrimination. W do not have for sale nor ever have made or sold any commodity useful only for war. We have alwaya sold explosives and projectiles and guns, both large and smalt, and barb wire and motorcycles and automobiles and aeroplanes and tele phone and. cotton and corn and wheat and beef and pork and shoes. Not an item named is exclusively useful In war. Nations have peaoeful uses for them all. To refuse any of these articles to any of our customers Involves our Judging their Intentions and charging them with Intending Immoral use. They would deny It. They might admit th use would be for war, but contend It a righteous war oa their part. What then? for wars are not necessarily Immoral on both sldea. To be In a state of war la not prima, fade evidenoe of wrong on the 'part ot a nation. Wars ot defense are considered honorable by every aane man. Wars as sisting an ally are clean wara. If the ally's cause be Just. War to preserve the balance of power among neighbor ing nations are abov reproach. If we denied the warring nation, they would then trade with ua totally through, their neutral neighbors, as they do largely BOW. At that Stage our sentimental carpers and critic would demand that we put up our shutters and completely suspend foreign trade to eacap culpa bility for th continuance of tha war. But let ua suppose that dona (and Na poleon found It Impossible to make auch unnatural reatrktUma workj would It stop " the war? Not neceaaarlly. Not probably. Th war aubalat on greed and the hate and Jealously and destruction. Materal means are only cleans and not causes nor effects. Un til the hate ia replaced by other anl mua a fear, pity. aaUtatlon. th . war will go on. if not In grand -style, aa up to thla time, then meanly and barbar ously, to Its end. Tet probacy before total ruination la reached, the end will com . Lt the earpers aod ctlUoa cultivate patience and composure. let them leara also this baaio law of all ethics vis: the law of eelf-prservatlon. It the dlsemploy ment of our people upoe our farms. In our factorlea, along our wharves and In our country houses Is th price that we must pay for Indulging tha muddled sen timentality of Senator HJchoock and his like, then we simply reply that th sane man ia not tb one who praters his neighbor to himself, nor the patriot, thu shouter who would distress his owa coun try by butting in to foreign quarrels with doubtful mean and attempa to bring peace. Nor are auch callow cavtlers poa aessed of any finer morality or truer sen sibilities. They are simply muddled. I would prescribe history and philosophy for them and a Uttl bromide. O. K. THOMPSON.
