In tie Case of Boy-Ed.
rresent Indications are that the Department
of Justice has been somewhat OTersealous in the
rase of Captain Boy-Ed, German naval attache,
connected with the embassy of his country at
Washington. So far as has been disclosed In the
trial in progress, the captain has done nothing
against the law of nations, or the laws of the
In I ted 8tate. He displayed a proper solicitude
for the merchant marine and the nary of his
country, but without overstepping due bounds.
It Is unfortunately true that not all of his coun
trymen, domiciled In the United States, were as
circumspect as the captain, and his relations with
them may be considered as affording the preteit
for the language employed by the prosecuting
attorney, which is now complained of by the Ger
man ambassador. Should matters develop that
we are wrong, the incident may be given a ser
viceable turn by enabling us to give the world
how quickly we may abandon a wrong attitude,
ence It has been disclosed.
War and Ship Building.
Announcement by an eastern railroad that it
ran not accept for the present freight consigned
to Europe, will serve to call attention in a
pointed way to the harvest that Is being reaped
by the ocean transportation lines. This railroad
icports Its sidings and switch-yards blockaded
for hundreds of miles, some of the loaded cars
having stood for eighty days, waiting for the ship
to take the load. Similar tales of freight block
ades are coming from other sections. On the
I'aclfle coast, docks and wharves are plied high
with goods, awaiting shipment, for which no ves
sels ran be found. Freight rates In the mean
time have risen to enormous figures. For ex
ample, when the war broke out, the rate from
San Francisco to Australia on wheat was 23
shillings; a few days ago a charter was made at
130 shillings. No war risk Is assumed In this
trade, but the demand for tonnage Is responsible.
,Tne steamer Minnesota sailed from Seattle within
a fortnight, laden with above 16,000 tons of
cargo, the freight on which will more than de
fray the expense of the trip to Liverpool, and pay
the purchase price of the ship, which was sold
by the Hill Interests to the British.
Shipyards are reported to have orders for
three years' work now booked, and at figures in
keeping with the advance in freight rates. Navy
yard bids on construction of vessels authorized
y the United States were far below private
proffers for doing the work. Whatever con
struction Is done by the United States govern
ment must be done tn its own yards. This brings
the case squarely back to the McAdoo plan for
the development of an American merchant

Most Annoying;, to Be Sore.
With the primaries Imminent, and all its sev
eral members looking forward to endorsement by
the people, either for retention or advancement
in office, the democratic administration at Lin
coln is having its troubles these days. It was
bad enough to have the governor and the state
treasurer fall out and call each other names, but
to have the State Board of Control involved in a
mess that shows on its surface negligence, If not
indifference, in enforcing the laws, is most an
roylng. The State Board of Control was de
signed to keep things straight, not to mix them
up. However, with the example set by the gov
ernor, in the matter of disregarding statutory
provisions for the handling of the state funds, to
guide him, it la scarcely to be wondered at that a
newly Imported superintendent should have
taken some liberties with the bookkeeping. He
musj. have thought It the custom in Nebraska.

Is cited for contempt by the supreme court of the
state, which signed the death warrant. His will
be, perhaps, the first case of Us kind, although
history records many Instances wherein failure
to obey orders has brought disaster to the
negligent. In this case, the warden Is but the
instrument of the law, which In Its orderly
course has laid upon him the unpleasant, and
perhaps distasteful duty of hanging a man. It
the law la to be of service to the people, it must
be faithfully administered by its agents, and
only when it is so observed will it be respected.
American disregard for law is notorious, a na
tional characteristic due in some degree to the
facility with which we make and unmake
statutes, and the ready ease with which the
penalty of the law Is often avoided. The su
preme court of Arizona has a fine chance to show
the world that It respects Its own decrees, regard
less of the opinions of the warden. '
Individually, no doubt, .the American Bank
ers' association possesses' the knowledge out
lined In Comptroller Williams' statement. Col
lectively the association lacked Inside informa
tion or It would not have challenged the state
ment that some national banks violate state
statutes against usurious interest charges. It
behooves the association In the future to search
its members and acquire accurate knowledge on
the subject before speaking above a whisper.
A distinguished Wisconsin doctor tickles the

To all practical purposes, the Lincoln Highway la
now completely marked from New York to Ban Fran

organizations, board of commerce, and other ctvL'
and patriotic organisations have made it a point t
complete the marking In their localltiea. In many
placea the tourists find the red, white and blue marker
on every auccesslve telegraph pole for miles, as in
sections of Iowa and Nebraska. Again, only one r

OMAHA. Neb.. Nov. i7.-To the Editor
of The Bee: Truth la atranger than fic
tion. Thla la the sad experience of Betsy,
I and tha babies.
I was brought up to save money and
put It to work aa an InveMment. My
surplus money Is Invested In a company
that manufactures perfumes and toilet
articles. On December 1, 1914, the emer
gency revenue art, which put a "war
tax" on perfumea and toilet articles,
went Into effect. Thla tax la unfair and
Is a species of discriminating legislation
aa It la all paid by the manufacturers.
When congress gets ready to tax all
other trades and industries, dry goods,
hardware, Jewelry and the rest, the drug
and allied manufacturer will assert no
right to exemption.
Now the manufacturing druggist psys:
1. A "00 per cent tax on alcohol.
". A 20 per cent tariff on raw mate
rinls. t. An income tax.
4. A corporation tax.
6 Btnte. municipal and documentary
6. A "war tax" which practically takes
one-half of our net profits.
Take a manufacturer doing a business
of $.109,000 a year. Under exceptional con-
dltlona and before the "war tax" was
imposed on his products he may have
been so fortunate as to earn a net
profit of 10 per cent, or $30,000. Today tha
government la stepping In and laying a
tax of 5 per cent or $15,000 which la half
of hla net profits. Theae war taxes are
said to be a tax on "luxuries." Some of
the Items are tooth paate. tooth powder,
talcum powder, deodorants, ate The ad-
anca of hygiene haa made theae articles
necesalttea. The prices on an drugs that
are used have Increased on account of
the war and some of them as high aa
00 per cent.
The solution of the problem would be
n requiring that the tax be paid by the
consumer on every piece; the same aa It
s with the telephone, telegraph, freight
and express receipts, eto. It haa been
auggeated that the tax be raised to 1
cent on articles of 26-eent retail selling
price; 2 cents on EO-cent articles; 4 cents
on $1 articles. The stamp to be affixed
