If the eulprlt'a guilt la established, there le bo punishment prescribed by law too severe for him. Time must elapse before tjje country can sice up the democratic- party's preparedness for a split With the close of the navigation season ap proaching, another waterways campaign will eooa be due. The trouble with that big "wet" parade In Chicago la that Mayor Thompson shut down the Sunday lid without letting them march first. Considering what our democratic governor and democratic state treasurer were going to do 'to one another, neither of them la moving very fast Besides the regular street lights, those beau tiful new ornamental lamps on the court house square are strikingly conspicuous by the difference. Three years la a lone wait between accession , and coronation, but Emperor Toahlhlto will for elve the arrangement commute If the crown is put on straight. So numerous and widely diffused were the knockers of the New Tork constitution that a search for causes affords as much useless ex ercise as chasing the guy who struck Billy Patterson. President Wilson advocates preparedness to defend ourself. The German notion of prepared i.tss Is to be ready to strike first and to "beat the enemy to It" The president will have to be ruore specific. Of course none of the other big and strong roads had anything to do with the Missouri Pa cific attack on the S-cent fare law. But as pectators they cannot conceal their exuberant Interest In the outcome. Mr. Taft Emphasises his withdrawal from political activities by advocating the revival ot spanking as a corrective of youth. . Political preferment Is hopelessly handicapped with Im pressions built that way. One of the claims made for the "Billy' Sun day campaign here wao that it would open the purse strings of converts and church members alder for all sorts of religious, charitable and philanthropic enterprises. How about it? An unidentified statistical sharp estimates that within two years the people of this country Invested 1700,000,000 In projects so unprofit able that all the money was lost It Is .quite evi dent that munition factories have considerable competition for easy money. Fourteenth street property owners protested ' against th closing- of the street by tha railroad track at a meelliuf at which the following committee was appointed to wait on tha city council: Richard Kitchen, It. T. Bmlth. Edward Ainscow, M. Hellrnan. William Mack, V. Uurkley, F. W. Boucal and A. Framl. Bartley Campbell's great play, "Tha Whits Slave," waa put s) at tha Boyd. Frank Bandla disposed of hia opera house cigar tore to A. J. Webb, and expects to go to Chicago to spend tha winter with bis folks, returning In tha spring. M!s Julia Carter of Ottumwa. Ia., Is visiting her brother, Lr. Carter. Ueorge U. Bobbins, for twenty-five years an em ploye of the Burlington, has left for Los Angeles, where be will make hia future home. Miss LUll Koch, who has been visiting Miss Lucy iJrexel. has returned to HL Josvph. The Board of Trade' at Its regular monthly meet ing diDcuattd the advisability of having the office of city building tnepeclor created. The New Note to Great Britain. The new note to Oreat Drttiln Is volumin ous, comprehensive aid plain-apoken, yet iierely restates and makes more emphatic the potation which our government has taken from the outset with reference to violations of the rights of neutrals on the seas. We inMst that previous to this war neutrals had secured the embodiment of certain principles in the accepted International law, ail in the direction of freedom of navigation, and we protest against the cur tailment or impairment of these rights under nny pretext whatever. We do not propose to have either Great Britain or Germany set up that we trave acquiesced in their self-made rules of blockade, war tone or wernlngless subsea oper ations. So far as scoring Immediate results out of the present note goes, we have, grave doubts. The protest is hardly an ultimatum, and an ultt r.iatum would be no more effective unless we r ere ready to enforce our demands. It will, however, enable the United States to renew the propositions when the International code comes to be reformulated, and also to prosecute claims for damages which may have been sustained by American cltlcens. The note is not to be taken ta the final step in the correspondence, for It is to bo presumed Great Brtain will digest it de liberately and form its answer with like deliber ation, as befits the ways of diplomacy. The rrltlshers, however, may as well accept It as certain that the United States, as the principal neutral nation, will not yield a position which our people unanimously believe is right Circumstance! Alter Cases. The humor of the "stuck elevator" which kept the president of the Nebraska State Teach ers' association from attending the big public meeting at the Auditorium last week was gen erally caught, but not the moral of the incident It is said that In announcing the meeting the distinguished educator had himself. admonished the teachers that, if they could not be present punctually at the appointed hour, they should stay away from the session. And then by the irony of fate tbe most noticeable case of tardi ness was brought home to his own door. All ot which only emphasises the time proved fact' that circumstances alter casea. Teachers can lay down rules galore for pupils to follow, but emergencies are bound to arise when the rules do not apply. The object of all education is not to lay down inevitable com laandments, but to teach people t think and to conform their actions to the exigency of the moment. Coronation of Empeior of Japan. The ceremonies Incident to the coronation of the emperor of Japan, which commenced Bun fay and will continue for a couple of weeks, are in strange contrast to conditions prevailing in the other nations parties to the great war now In progress. The part played by Japan In the actual warfare waa a small one, completed early In the struggle, and its participation at present is merely industrial, and In consequence. Instead of desolato homos and Borrow, the land Is given over to rejoicing and its people are lay ing aside their usual avocations to participate In the century old Ceremonies incident to the ihductlon ot a new ruler. Politically, the events are robbed of any particular significance by the fact that the emperor has actually been on the throne long enough to Indicate what his Heals and ambitions are and the coronation la simply the formality of crowning, so that no developments either In the relations of Japan to ether natlona or ot internal policy are to be an ticipated. In other and less strenuous times, however, the ancient ceremonies would have at tracted thousands ot visitors from all over the world and descriptions of them would have filled columns upon columns in the newspapers. Lincoln Ought to Enow. -'Council Bluffs is praying for prohibition In Nebraska," so a well known citizen ot that place is quoted in the Lincoln Journal, which adds on Its own account, "Iowa turns dry with the new year.' .Council Bluffs boozers later will be, able to get . drunk In Omaha, after .which they will return and muss up their homo town. So Council Bluffs would like to see Omaha dry, too." Well! Lincoln ought to know, because Lin coln folks wore out all the street railway rolling stock running to Havelock durinj the brief period Lincoln was dry. We In Omaha, too, are supposed to close at 8 o'clock, while Council Bluffs Is reaping the advantage of keeping open several hours longer but there was no move neut In Council Bluffs to reduce the after-8-o'clock 'bridge travel until ' forced by state enactment It is really too bad Lincoln Is not as close to Council Bluffs as Havelock la to Lincoln. War and Transfer of Industries. The European war has forced this country Into numerous lines of manufacturing activity la which the United States had previously played but a minor role If It had done anything at all. In spite of the fact this country was at one time the largest producer of furs in the world and still is one of the largest, the dressing and dyeing of furs has been practically monopolised by Europe. The most noticeable instance of this waa the fur seal, which has all been dyed In London. The war has so seriously Interfered with the Industry that fur dealers'ln this coun try have seised the opportunity to Induce work ers in the London dyeing establishments to come to tbe United States and bring their Industry with them. As the United States government through its control ot the princpal source of seal fur production, dominates the supply of raw ma terial, It would be reasonable to expect the pro ject to succeed. Other furs have largely been dressed and dyed In Germany, and from the seal experiment it is but a step towards taking in the entire field ot fur dressing and dyeing, the Magnitude of which Is little appreciated. The people ot this country are among the largest liters as well as producers ot fur, and Just why England and tlermaoy have monopolised the business of preparing them for use is not ex plained on any logical ground, but simply be cause they have reached out after the business, end It will be a good thing In this instance, aa In several others, if the necessities of the oc casion force the country to utilise its opportuni ties and resources. If Mr. Bryan resigned from the cabinet for fear we would not have at least a year ot con versation with either Great Britain or Germany, he certainly made an egregious mistake. Tho Jews in the War Zone Blermaa Bernstein.' The Amerloaa anther, wa J net retnrned front hia trln of lBTeetlgatia la Sarove, reports hia findings to tha Amerteam Jewish Belief com- . BUttea. WHRRBVETl I went In blood-drenched Europe In England, France. Italy, Bwitserland. Ger many, Auatrla and HollnniV-the Jewish leaders and tha Jewish rank and file hare asked me to trane mlt their message to tha Jews of America. The war of tha European powera has made It Impossible for the Jews to speak In the same terms In their appeals to their brethren for their brethren. Divided by their sympathies, by their patriotism, though united by the sufferings and tha martyrdom of the Jewish people In tha war-stricken landa, they have to be diplomats even when they ask "bread for the living and shrouds for the dead." All eyas of the Jewish people abroad are, turned to American Israel, all hanla are stretched out to the great Jewish center In the new world, watting for help. They, are hopeful that the great American Jewish center will surely act quickly, generously and energetically and help In saving the Jewish centers thst are being destroyed now, the mothers and chil dren who are dying of hunger and of cold, driven from town to town, like rattle, yet without the care ao corded to cattle. They are hopeful that the Jews of America will be aroused to a realisation of tholr full duty to their brethren, to tha Jewish people which Is becoming a people of starving wanderers. It la not of the Jewish soldiers who have fallen that I wrtta. Nor of tha Jewish officers who have bravely given their Uvea upon the battlefields. In Austria alone upwards of 1,600 Jewish officers have already died on the battlefield in this war. Tha Jews ererywnere have furnished proportionately a larger share to the armies than the other elements of the populations and their blood has been shed on all battlefields. It la not of these victims of the war that I write now. The Jews have given their lives aa the other nations have given them in this most useless, moat terrible of wars In history. But It is of the people they have left behind that I write, ot their fathers, their mothers, their sisters, their wives and their children who are starving', of Jewish com munities, .of ancient Jewish center of culture and learning that have bean uprooted. Millions of Jews In Russia and GeJIoU have been utterly ruined; they are now homeless, hopeless, starving. Thousands of thousands are actually dying of hunger. They are starving In Russia, they are starving In Oallcla, and they are starving In the Polish provinces occupied by the German forcee. Tea, they are dying of hunger In Ldbs and in Warsaw, and In counties othsr places. It U not of equal right, not of emancipation that I wish to writ Just now; It is of bread, of shelter for the hundred of thousands who hav been torn away from their homes, driven to the mercy of the cold wind. They cannot even utter cries for help; The censor Is suppressing these cries everywhere. The refugees are crying In vain In the wilderness, but their hope are directed to the Jews of America. When our people are starving, when the Jewish question Is be ing solved In certain places through annihilation, when Jewish communities and Jewish centers of culture are being wiped out will American Jews turn a deaf ear to the call of despair? Will they remain silent? Will they withhold their generous aid? Can they minimise the tragedy by speaking of Its enormity and the Im possibility of meeting the problems adequately? Z hav seen tha Jewish viotlms of the war. Indeed, the Jewish people Is the tragic victim of the war. I hav seen ths nation of sorrows In mourning, plunged into the depth of grief. :..,,' I hav seen Jews who hav gone Insane from tha horror that hav come upon the Jewish people In Europe. X saw on of these victim in Bwitserland. He had ' oocn from Russia. Bom of his relatives died on the battlefield. Others were tortured by pog-roTn-tnaksrs pillaged,, violated, hanged. lis ha seen children tortured, woman violated and old men put to death, and the Holy Scrolls desecrated. This has driven hhn Insane, and hi "mania" express Itself In a peculiar form. Wherever he goes he shouts about the terror he baa witnessed, about the cruelties against the Jewish people. All day long ha sits In his little room and wilt hysterical and heartrending letters and appeal to the rulers and potentates of the nations, relating bis experiences and begging them to make aa end to the persecution and suffering of th Jews. ' There are many such unfortunates in th Russian and Polish provinces where the Jew are starving today. When th wnol story of Israel's tragedy In this war will be told th world will shudder. Aimed at Omaha Tekamah Herald! Omaha la getting better. Last week It revoked a saloon license for violating tha S o'clock dosing law th first In th history of that city. "Billy" Sunday's meetings are bearing fruit Beaver City Times-Tribune: Thing go by op posite. For Instances, the rankest democrat In town takes the Omaha Bee, because he ha no use for th World-Herald. t Tork News: If the authorities are still unable to locate those M., K. A T. holdup men. we suggest that they send over to Omaha and get their police force at work on th ease. - Franklin NswS: Th Omaha Commercial club ha a membership of 1,100 and believe us they are all booster for Omaha. If Franklin had a Commercial club of one-eighteenth th membership of th Omaha club, and it should have, there would be something stirring here every time anything came up that would be of benefit to th city. . RushviU Recorder: Th Be reminds Governor Shallenberger that under the direct election system, he cannot be a candidate for both senator and con grsssmaa at th cam time. What do you know about that There' nothing a democrat can't do. Albion News: There are Indications that Omaha has been reformed in a degree at least A saloon keeper has been convicted of violating the law and his license revoked. If such a thing ever happened before It waa at such a remote period as to hav been forgotten by th present generation. Orand Island Independent: The Omaha newspaper hav answered the Fremont Tribune' charge that each of the metropolitan dallies hav received $3,000 for the publicity given by them to th "Billy" Bun. day campaign. Th Bee. speaking for Itself, states that not three cents, to say nothing of tS.ooo, was re ceived by It for th most prominent and valuable columns of th paper, and Editor Hammond haa been compelled to retract th charge, th correction hav. Ing already been cheerfully and gracefully made. It can be accepted, therefore, as a fact, that never be fore hav th newspapers of a city experiencing a Sunday campaign, given tha evangelist more assist anoa than waa given In, Nebraska's metropolis. Orand Island Independent! Because a highway man or two hav secreted themselves behind trees la Omaha recently. It has been suggested by th city commissioner, according to th Omaha prints, that th tree be materially thinned out and the ah rubbery in th private grounds near th leading streets be rooted out Has It not come to a decidedly bad pas If th situation Is such aa to J unify this suggestion? Has Omaha done ail It could do as to other plans it might be desirable to attempt before being driven to the necessity of laying waste to its tree and gardens on aeoount of th arlmlnal element which It seems, at th moment to harbor? Are there not lees useful, less ornamental, leas valuable rendevouses and sources ot protection which It were better first to tbin out: ' . J7T - Zt , The Bible and Hell. NORTH PLATTE, Neb.. Nov. 8.-T0 the Editor of The Bee; I read Mr. It sloky s vIpws of hell and his flsying of William Sunday. All I have to say Is that so far ss I cn see and under stand, Hilly" was right In seeking ad ml'Klnn Into tha piablla schools In Omaha to give a lecture or sermon either. Billy" docs not sK any one to accept any creed or discipline other than the holy Bible (a-mcn), and why shtwildn t we have the Bible In our schools? I think a majority of the school board members everywhere need a little en lightenment along thla line. They seem to think when they become members of the school board It (the public ic.do s) belongs solely to them. While I am not acquainted with any of the Omaha school board members. I will leave some brother In that city to voice his opinion. The lattef part of Mr. Roaicky s letter is so nonsencicsl that It Is just about worthless to "comment or debate on. As all ha say or knows Is uppose, sup pose, suppose this and that. When he says "Billy" Sunday Is caus ing more unhapplness, strife sad making more people Insane than all other things he is a fool, and I etui get the proof also to make him out as such. A person can readily figure out between llnea what Mr. lloslcky is. He Is undoubtedly an Ingersoll, Christian Scientist or one of the Russelltes. Those three seem to have a key that dropped out of the skies. They seem to delight In slashing the Scrlpturea of the holy Bible In ordor to fit their own Idea. He might caU hell, snakes, wild beast or anything he wishes, but that does not change the real meaning as set forth in the Bible one lota. When Jesus said cast them Into a furnace of fire, I don't think he meant get an electrlo fan and a chunk ot ice. No, I should say not. He meant just what he said, and said Just what he meant There's about fifty verse In the Bible that will give Mr. Roslcky or any one of his believers a good Idea of belt. Here's a few. Wish I could hav space to give 'em alt to you: Matthews xxv:48. And these shall go away Into everlasting punishment; but the righteous Into life eternal. Deu teronomy xxxll:23. For a fir Is kin dled In Mine anger and shall burn Into the lowest hell, and shall consume the earth with her Increase and set on fire the foundation ot the mountains. V. A. BRAIKSHA.W, tenblna to the Reecne. CHICAGO, Nov. S. To th Editor of The Bee: President Wilson's address may be sumed up as follows: "Patriot ism," "Prepardneaa for War," "Qualified American Cltisenshlps," "No Religion in Politics," and general procedure under th "Direction of th God of Nations." f "Patriotism." sure; that is nature's first law. It follow from Individual to the aggregation of government-aelf-preservstlon. The more we preserve our selves, th less time we shall have to preserve other people. "Prepardness for war." Who are w going to fight? Are European govern ments comrn her to fight us? Or are w going abroad to fight them? Or are w going to fight among ourselves? Along with "preparedness for war," the people of thla country want to know who and what they are going to fight. "Qualified American cittsensnlp." Now you hav struck th keynote. President Wilson. Who are theso? Hyphenated or otherwise? They are those who hold a supreme allegiance to a foreign power, po litical, economic, religious or otherwise. What is termed th Invisible" govern ment? This Invisible government al ready haa entire control of this government in all its departments, its ehlef exeontlve Inoluded. Do you, Mr. President, want your army and navy to fight this "Invisible" government, or to compel some poor devil to shoot his mother If the "lnvlsibl" government ordered him to do ao? "No religion In politics." coming from a schoolmastsr, a preacher, a college professor, and th president of th United State of America, Such a decla ration 1 enough to stun an Egyptian mummy, Since th history . of th world, religion and politic hav been th two co-operative prime factors of government; the two parent of des potic power; so recognised by President Wilson whan he declare that religion la free, but don't talk about It. Thla Is Ilk the president of a prohibition so ciety usurping tha society, and declaring that th members could drink all they wanted to and such aa they wanted to. Just so they would be prohibitionists. "Under the direction of the God of Na tions," In which case, why should Wil son concern himself about It; leave It to Ood. According to current report God has been running this thing for S.00O years, which Is another evidence that re ligion always was In politics: th effi ciency of which 1 demonstrated by the war In Europe; regardless of President Wilson's special prayers, and the nation wide prayers of all the clergy In the United States. What hop can the people take from four columns of this conglomeration in the Chicago Tribune of November &? How can the people return to the 'democracy of Paine and Jefferson; and th re publicanism of Lincoln. True, the constitution guarantees the freedom of speech and the press, civil and religious liberty, and against special privileges. But these are being usurped by the invisible" government well nigh to completion, which. It allowed to pro ceed, will complete their purpose entirely. It Is now up to an emergency. Th sur vival of the fittest by direct action of th people through their congress. Th people cannot elect a president that they can control. Get together, you people. Throw your Jonah overboard and aava your republic. LUCIEN 6TEBBIN8. Editorial Siftings Pittsburgh Dispatch: At the worst th suffragists may take heart of grace from the remembrance that such immortal pioneers as Susan B. Anthony and Elisa beth Cady Stanton never for a moment forgot that optimism was a far superior thought te pessimism. Baltimore American: A New Tork po liceman on duty at the polls remarked that tbe presence of women there had made hia duty merely formal, as the men were trying to beat one another In the showing of good behavior before the women. This disposes of on slander against American chivalry of women' forfeiting respect by mixing with ail aorta and condition at th polls. A Nsw Tork judge declared th election the quietest for years, ascribing this phenomenal lack 'of disorder to th presence of the women.

Pittsburgh Dispatch: Now they are quoting the prophet Nostrsdemus. who something like years ago, predicted that "One day the British fleet will steam up to Constantinople In a foggy sea mist and win laurels In a great world wide war." It seems to have come true aa far as th foggy part of the operation la concerned. St. Louis Republic: The moral of this brief tale Is that the people of Colorado ought to own the Rio Grande and the people of Missouri and the states to the wet ought. to own the Missouri Pacific. If our banks were owned In Wall street and their stocks were gambled in there, what eort of financial chaos would rule west of the Mississippi? And how can a stat of things that would mean ruin to the banking business mean anything else to the railroad business? Look at the St. Louig Receivers' club for the answer.
