The voting of bonds for a bride across the
Missouri river at Yankton and the building of a
fhort connecting railroad north revives the old
hope of Omaha for an entry into that trade ter
ritory, a large portion of which Is naturally
tributary to this city. The efforts to gain ac
cess to this field have been many, dating back
to the time when Omaha was little more than
a village and the old Omaha Northwestern was
chartered, and they have been continued Inter
mittently since. West Tjf the Missouri river
railroad development hss opened up the field to
Omaha, but all traffic from east of the river has
been forced to pass through Btoux City to reach
Omaha, and the handicap of increased distance
and indirect rail communication has virtually
shut Omaha out
The project now under consideration gives
more promise of fruition than its predecessors.
In the first place, it involves no great financial
outlay, for roads leading from Omaha already
tap the country across the river from Yankton,
and with lines already built into that city and
north, a few miles of new road will connect up
with a network of lines spreading over the en
tire territory. A clearer appreciation of the
value of this opening probably would have
solved the problem long ago, but let us hope
tbat the present project will not be allowed to
The Case of the Ancona.
More of the details must be known of the
blnking of the Ital'an liner "Ancona" before
tiny safe conclusion can be reached as to its
justification or wantonness. If another passen
ger ship, carrying helpless women and children,
as well as men, baa been torpedoed and sunk
without warning and without opportunity to
tcke off the noncombatants, a serious situation
,vlll be presented, and more serious to us If
lives of American citizens have been needlessly
socriflced. If, on the other hand, the boat waa
destroyed "according to rule," while the horror
and inhumanity is no less, the possibility of in
ternational complications may be avoided.
Ai a "Friend of the Court."
With due permission first obtained, a brief
by E. J. Hainer as a "friend of the court" has
been filed in the case pending before the su
preme Judges to determine whether Nebraska's
constitutional provision rquirlng a specific leg
islative appropriation for the expenditure of pub
lic money means what it says. As the Judges
doubtless want light, they can have no objection
to having other "friends of the court" volunteer
their Ideas In answer to the propositions ad
vanced by Mr. Hainer. In point of fact, what
he asks Is that the constitution bo temporarily
annulled, because upholding It might force the
' fire commission, and the food, drug, dairy and
cil commissions to wholly suspend operations
In the Interim between September 1 and the
next session of the legislature." The fault with
this argument Is that the basic assumption is
entirely unwarranted, for there is nothing what
ever to prevent these commissions continuing to
do their work and asking for a deficiency ap
propriation from the next legislature. While
we do not advocate a special legislative session
to meet the emergency, because we do not think
it necessary, other states, where legislatures
have bungled appropriations, have frequently
reconvened their law-makers to do the work
over again, rather than put their constitutions
In the same class with a "scrap of paper." Illi
nois, for example, Is said to be facing such a
situation right this minute, but no "friend of
the court" in that state seems to have suggested
that the defective law be declared valid notwith
standing, because failure to get the money out
of the treasury might threaten the continuity of
the salaries of the officeholders concerned.
In his brief Mr. Hainer further insists that
the collections from these state Inspection fees
constitute a "trust fund" to pay the expenses of
the particular department of the state govern
ment, and, therefore, can be drawn on without
legislative authority. But they constitute so
r ore of a trust fund than do the collections of
the state university in the form of student fees,
or of the secretary of state in the form of reg-
ltratlon fees, or of the clerk of the supreme
c.urt In the form of docketing fees and court
costs. The constitution and laws of Nebraska
contemplate turning Into the state treasury all
these collections and drawing the money out In
the regular order. But If these provisions are
to become dead letters every time a democratic
legislature goes to sleep or falls down, they may
as well be expunged altogether.
Nebraaka Crop Values.
What appears to be a conservative estimate
of the value of four of Nebraska's loading crops
corn, wheat, oats and hay places the total
at $236,781,903, computed on values of 60 cents
per bushel for merchantable corn, halt that
amount for soft corn, 75 cents for wheat, 30
cents for oats, $7 per ton for alfalfa hay and
Id and $7 per ton for wild and tame hay. Prices
being paid out in the state for these staples show
them to be, if anything, below the average, and
the total crop yield Is computed on a basis
which appears to be able to bear the test of an
alysis. A crop of such volume also means that
the percentage consumed on the farm as feed
for stock used in farm operation Is less than In
smaller crop years, though, of course, the actual
amount Is a fairly stable quantity year by year,
and the remainder which will be converted Into
cash in the shape of grain or meat products muat
be greatly In excess of the normal. In contrast
with the big cotton crop of the south last year
there Is a ready market at fair prices for every
dollar's worth of Nebraska's product, and what
this means In a business way would be difficult
to compute, and its Influence Is more than local,
for the great grain belt of which Nebraska Is a
prominent portion has been the steadying In
fluence on the commerce of the nation and the
t right spot In days of depression. This great
production of agricultural staples which all the
world must have Is the key to the business ac
tivity in Omaha and throughout Nebraska.

The Prohibition Program
Washliurtoa Correspondence Boatoa Transcript.
WHETHER proMMtlon rrohiblta or not there Is a
very rood ' chance that the proposed national
amendment advocated by the prohibitionists will
be brought to a. vote In congress this year. Leading
democratic politicians ara said to favor a vota on
grounds of political expedlnncey, the Idea being to
eliminate the liquor question from tha national cam
paign of 1310 and thua to avoid poeaible embarrass
ment on this score. No other man than tha new ma
jority leader of tha house. Claude Kltchln of North
Carolina, it la aald. will Introduce the old Hobson
amendment In case Mr. Kltrhln flnda It Inadvisable
at the last moment to perform this task for tha
"drys," they will probably fall back upon Chairman
Webb of the Judiciary committee. Both Webb and
Kltrhln are strong prohibitionist and both are ad
It la asserted that tha whisky Interests will not op
pose the resolution aa etubbornly as they did last
year, but will save their powder for, tha fight In the
states against the ratification of the amendment. The
liquor Interests believe they can postpone the nnei
adoption of the prohibition amendment for ao many
years that It will become a forgotten Issue.
Ever since the the defeat of the Hobson amend-
mn nr tKe officials nf tha Antl-SaloOn DeaCUS
of America have been busy lining up votes to put tha
mrasure through the house at tha coming session.
Now at laat they believe they have tha votea. Front
sources close to the league It was learned recently
that It will concentrate Its efforts In the Sixty-fourth
congress upon two projects. One la the Hobson
amendment, and the other la a measure to maao mo
District of Columbia prohibition territory. The league
bellevea It will be able to put both measures through.
Its officers reel that tha real right lies in ine noua-j.
where the margin Is close. In tha senate they claim
to have more than two-thirds majority.
It will require some maneuvering to get the Dis
trict of Columbia prohibition measure before congress.
Tha first move will be to get It favorably reported
by the district committee, but tfct committee la
evenly divided on tha wet and dry question and last
year the wets managed to prevent the committee from
reporting such a measure. It Is possible, however,
to tack the district measure either on the district ap
propriation bill or on to any other general supply
measure which goes through congress. Furthermore,
failure to get favorable action tn the house will not
prevent the prohibitionists from taking It up in the
senate and thereby getting It back In the house In
the form of a senate amendment that can be taken
from the committee and disposed of by tha whole
The prohibition leaders assert that the national
prohibition amndment will go through tha house and
senate easily. They say that many of the hold-overs
who voted wet last year have heard from their districts
and are now repentant and ready to vote "dry" at
the first opportunity. Also, they say that a canvass
of the new members, mostly republicans, shows an
overwhelming sentiment among them In favor of sub
mitting the question to the states tn order to get It
out of congress once and for all. These leaders have
been paying close attention to the activities of the
opposition and have concluded that the liquor Inter
ests have about reached the point where they do not
want any further discuasion of the liquor question
In congress. Anti-Saloon league officials think that
If the amendment la once put through congress It
will be ratified by three-fourths of the states within
a few years. The liquor Interests take an opposite
It la pointed out that once an amendment la ac
tually submitted to the states, It la always before
them until adopted. Thus, It is never formally re
jected In the sense that more than one-quarter of
the states reject It at one time, because the action
of the legislature can be reversed on subsequent oc
casion!. Through the process of elimination, the
"drys" believe they can soon concentrate the liquor
fight In a few states. It ls( already conceded that
the prohibitionists will be able to gat their measure
reported by the Judiciary committee, and the liquor
Interests also oonoeda that most of the democ ratio
house leaders are In favor of national prohibition.

Wnmlfr Una n Plan.
PtLVF.n CREEK, Neb., Nov. IO.-T0 the
Editor of The Bee: When after the civil
war Andrew Johnson was at war with
congress over his plan of reconstructing
the seceding states, "my policy." he called
It old Zaciiariah Chandler, United States
senator from Michigan, said President
Johnson had no business to have a policy
that the reconstruction of the southern
statea was a matter that belonged to con
gress and not to the president
In a similar may President Wilson has
no business to have a policy as to "pre
paredness." If he thought the country
was not in a proper state of defense he
might. If he saw fit, properly call the at
tention of congress to the situation and
recommend that the country be put In a
state of defense, but he has no right to
go before the country and before con
gress with a detailed plan, and much less
has he a right to attempt to make such
a plan an "administration" measure and
force It through congress, as we have a
right to believe he Intends to try to do.
uch work is revolutionary. It Is the
business of the president to execute the
laws, not to make them. If this matter
of preparedness were to be left to the
free action of congress, aa It should be.
how does President Wilson know that
some congressman, or senator. If It were
thought beat to do anything at all, might
not propose a better plan of national de
fense than his own?
I think I have a better plan myself,
and to make a brief presentation of It la
the purpose of this communication.
What I propose Is that the United
Statea should enter Into a defensive naval
alliance with England.
I suggest as to the main feature of such
an alliance, that It should provide:
1. That the combined naval forces of the
two powers shoujd be used to prevent an
attack upon either, or any of their colo
nies or dependencies.
1 That no attack from tha sea upon
any country of the western hemisphere
should be permitted.
1 That after the conclusion of peace In
Europe, England should not add to tha
strength of its navy, and that the United
etates should not add to the strength of
Its navy after It had been brought up to
a point something like approaching that
of England, as might be agreed.
4. That no other nation should be per
mitted to materially Increase Its naval
strength, standing notice being given that
any new war vessel, or others in Its place,
would be destroyed on sight.
6. That Franca, Italy, Japan and other
nations, as might be agreed, should be
permitted to become parties to the alli
ance If they wished, sharing Its benefits
and responsibilities on equal terms.
With such an alliance In existence the
parties to It would be absolutely secure
against attack from the sea. We should
not ony be spared the enormous expense
of putting ourselves in a state of defense
against the whole earth, but would not
need even the regular army that we now
have. An army of ,000 men for guard
and escort duty and dress parade would
be enough; and no national guards or
organised militia would be required, ex
cept as each state might determine for
itself with a view to preserving order
within its own borders. England and all
Its colonies, with the exception of India
and Egypt, being safe from attack from
foreign foes, could disband Its armies
(after this war is over) and devote all
its energies to the arts of peace, as It
would be only too glad to do, and re
cuperating from the effects of this ter
It will be urged that such an alliance
Is against the traditional policy of this
country. Admitted. But it does not fol
low that because Washington's advice
against permanent alliances has been
good up to this day. It la to be good al
ways. Conditions have changed beyond
even the wildest flights of the Imagina
tion, and we should pursue such a course
as sound Judgment dictates as to what
la beat under these changed conditions.
It will be said that such an alliance
would be bitterly opposed by, both Irish
Americana and German-Americans. By
some, yes, but I think not necessarily by
the great majority of them, who, I be
lieve, are at heart really good and true
President Wilson's schema of prepared
ness would be certain to be a failure for
present purposes, and would even Invite
the attacks It is Intended to shield us
from. For If any European power Is to
attack us It would be Immediately after
this war, and. In all reason, before we
could possibly put ourselves In a state
of defense; and tha same would be true
of Japan. Either a European power or
Japan desiring to make war on us could
hardly be expected to be so polite and
considerate of our Interests as to watt
until we were' fully armed.
For more than 100 years, with a boun
dary Una between them of more than
8.000 miles, the United States and England
have lived at peaoe, neither having a fort
or battleship, a soldier or gun to use
against the other; neither has anything
to fear from the other; both love liberty
and hate military power, and In such an
alliance each has everything to gain and
nothing to lose. Such an alliance would
be Invincible; It would mean the absolute
and permanent peace of half the civilised
world, and would take tha world mora
than half way on the road to the longed
for goal of universal peace.
