The Government and Pacific Koads.
Prosecution In the federal courtg of a suit
to divorce the Central and Southern Pacific
lines renews Interest In the past attitude of the
government to this problem. When the Harri
man system was being "unscrambled," the Union
Pacific undertook to purchase the Central Pa
cific, but was prevented by Attorney General
McReynolds, who Insisted that It would be dan
gerous to have a continuous line under the same
management from Omaha to San Francisco. The
stupidity of that position was at that time
pointed out by The Bee and conditions then fore
casted have developed.
The present suit turns on a condition eatab
Hshed by the McReynolds ultimstum, which
merely continued the Southern Pacific control,
against which for years all the transcontinental
shippers have protested. The Central Pacific
as an Independent line haa no statua. It must
have a close working connection with an east
ern outlet. In order to serve the traffic it is de
signed to accommodate.
The perfect transcontinental system of rail
roads, well demonstrated by experience, waa
the old plan for an Overland route, which should
never have been deviated from. The govern
ment has effectually muddled the situation, has
not aided the rivals of the Union or Southern
Pacific, has given no relief to shippers, and It
remains yet to clear the track to the right so
lution. The Philippines.
The flash and clash between Secretary of
War Garrison and ex-Pfesldent Taft over the
Philippines have drawn attention to the un
happy and steadily deteriorating condition of
those Islands since the democrats started ex
perimenting with them, and the best claim by
the democratic mouthpiece is that, despite the
admitted loss in efficiency by the backward
step, the ground may be regained when the
policy of aelf-government la worked out. In a
word, the excuse Is made that the democrats,
having been committed to a wrong policy, prefer
to persist In It with such resulting demorallxa
tlon Vr there, rather than to acknowledge
their mistake and go back to the tried and
proved republican policy.
But 'the fact ia that the democratic treat
ment of the Philippines doe not conform even
with democratic platform professions. It will
be remembered that Colonel Bryan threw up
hla military commission and left his troopa in
Cuba to rush back to Washington and help force
ratification of the treaty of Paris, for the ex
press purpose of making "militarism" an issue
In his 1800 campaign. The democratic plat
form on that point, therefore, outlined the dem
ocratic policy (omitting denunciation of the re
publicans) by saying:
W favor an Immediate declaration of the na
tion's purpose to give the Filipinos, first, a stable
form of government; second, Indwpendence, and
third, protection from outside Interference.
The position of the republicans at that time
was stated in this reference to the people of our
newly acquired Insular possessions:
The largest measure of self-government con
sistent with our welfare and our duty shall n
secured to them by law.
The democrats reiterated their declaration
in 1904 and 10S, and again la 1913, when It
took on thla' language:
We favor an Immediate declaration of the ra
tion's purpoae to recognise the independence of the
Philippine Islands as soon as a atable government
ran bs estshllahed, such Independence to be guar
anteed by us until the neutralisation of the Islands
ran be secured by treaty with other powers.
But fifteen yeara, three of them under dem
ocratic rule, apparently, hag not sufficed to
produce a stable government which would war
rant the "Immediate" Independence of the Fil
ipinos which the democrats promised thera way
back in the year 1900. The democrats have
failed to carry out even the express terms of
their 1912 platform pledge, and all they have
accomplished so far, according to tbe consensus
of competent opinion, Is the undoing of a large
part of what the republican administrations had
accomplished and making It necessary to do It
over again with increased difficulty. It would
be far better for the Filipinos, as well aa for
the people of thla country, If the democrats
would recognise the fact that it la "a condition
and not a theory which confronts them" In
dealing with the Philippines.
. The Farmen and Their Congress.
The determination of the farmers to restrict
membership In their state congress to persona
engaged In or cloaely allied to farming ia on
right lines. Hitherto, the affalra of the con
gress have been considerably disturbed by the
Interjection of matters that have little or no
relation to the Industry of agriculture as such,
and expressions thus obtained have been uaed
to bolster up the political projects of pestifer
ous agitators. The farmers are deeply con
cerned in politics, and are not to be denied full
activity in the governmental affairs of the atate,
but their deliberations ought to be untrammeled,
and their conclusions reached without undue in
fluence from outsiders, whose interest ia not
alwgya that of the farmer. Good will certainly
come to the congress as a reault of the house
cleaning commenced in Omaba.
Politic! and the 8tate Univeriity.
Tbe capital correspondent of our local demo
cratic contemporary boasts of the services being
rendered by the democrats on tbe Board of Re
gents of the University of Nebraska, and praises
them aa big business men giving their time and
talent without reward to the institution. All
that be gayg of these men may be true, and will
not be .disputed, but what of the other mem
bers of the board, who are not democrats, but
who are also big business men and devoting
their best abilities Just as freely to and effec
tlvely to the university! Efforts to Involve the
University of Nebraska In partisan politics
ought to be rebuked at any time. The service
of the school essentially depends on Its Indepen
dence of and freedom from partisan Influence
however remotely exerted. The long list of able
men who have served as regenta without emolu
ment is the best possible evidence of the re
gard tbe people have for the university. The
present attempt to gain a little partisan credit
for the democrats at the expense of this great
educational institution, cheapens even that

Europe After the War
Aleaaade Woyes la etifcaar'e.
ANNOUNCINO In the German Reichstag at the
close of August, the third great German war
loan, the Imperial finance minister briefly re
viewed some aaMent facts. The dally coat to all the
powers Involved In the European war, he said, had
risen to tTJ.000,000; the monthly cost to more than
I2.onr,orx),onO; the yearly cost to something like ,26,000,.
ono.ono. The spoech containing those estimates wss
made before Bulgaria had entered the war and be
fore the Balkan campaign had begun; therefore, the
present outlay must be greater still. Germany alone,
the ministerial spee-h proceeded, was now spending In
a single month more by one-third than the total Coat
of her Franco-Pruaaian war.
To these rompariaona one may profitably add some
others of equal Interest, affecting Great Britain's hill
of costs. At Its present rate of war expenditure.
England paya out In six months mora than the United
States government spent for military and naval pur
poses In all the four years of the American civil war.
It Is commonly estimated that the war with France
In the Napoleonic period, from 1799 to 1SIJ Inclusive,
coat England In the ar (re sate S4.16O.O0O.OUO. But the
chancellor of the exchequer recently declared to Par
liament that England's expenditure during only the
twelve-month period ending next March will ha.e
amounted to $7,960,000,000; and the average dally rate
of outlay Is progressively Increasing.
These flgurea of the present waste of capital In
war are so large that to moat minds they are merely
bewildering. Some of the most experienced Interna
tional bankers ventured the positive prediction at the
beginning of this year, that the belligerent govern
ments would not be able to continue raising the neces
sary funds after 1915. This prediction, like so many
others made since the war began, will have to get Its
answer from the progress of eventa, and the answer
may not be what waa expected. But It should still
be poaslhle to ascertain exactly how the various bel
ligerent governments sre raising the money for this
prodigious expenditure; then to inquire what effect,
temporary or permanent, the process ia exerting on
their actual prraent financial situation, and from that
to obtain at least some Idea of the economic condi
tion In which the severs! belligerents wilt emerge from
this ruinous conflict.
It Is not always easy to determine whrt Imme
diate present effect, financial or economic, the strain
of war la exerting on a given belligerent stute. In
dustrial activity Is usually keyed up to a high pltcn
by the government's huge purchases of material.
Profits from many manufactures rise because of the
war requirements; wagea of labor Invariably rlae.
But what also happens Is the rapidly increasing
p'sralysls of normal business.
In countries like Francs or England It la the
export trade which moat plainly tells this part of the
story. The decrease in Great Britain's merchandise
exports, during the first seven months of 1915, of
$469,000,000, or 82i per cent, from the same months of
1014, and the simultaneous decrease In French exports
by $430,009,000, or 6 per cent, were certainly In great
part a result of the commandeering of capital for
war loans, thereby stopping Improvement and exten
sion of private business enterprises; of the enlistment
of skilled workmen In alt the fighting states for the
war, and of the turning of the machinery In almost
every kind of factory to the making of ammunition.
What has been the effect of the war on the legit
imate home consuming market is less eaay to deter
mine. But It la reasonable to suppose that the appeal
for every hundred marks of private German savings
to be Invested in the war loans and the tss of IT per
cent and upward on English Incomes, must enor
mously reduce the whole people's purchasing power.
Just now all this is sccepted as an inevitable Inci
dent of a war for the country's safety like the In
flated paper currencies of the continent and tha de
preciated foreign exchange on England. But what sort
of condition does It foreshadow when the war Is over '
The first and most unmistakable conclusion la
that , the people of what Is now belligerent Europe
will be poor. This muM be so In England, not only
because the furious activity In all trades contributing
to the wsr will have stopped completely, but becausu
the abnormally heavy taxes must continue. It must
be so In Germsny becauae the "war orders" will have
ceased, because the long embargo on foreign com
merce will have exerted Its. cumulative Influence, and
because the Imposition of much heavier taxes can
then no lonser be deferred. Very few people of ex
perience or judgment regsrd as anything but" a pre
text or a dreant the Imperial finance minister's Idea
of a wa'r Indemnity of ll.OX,000,000 or upward. Imposed
by a victorious Germany on her enemies. With those
enemies now In possession of Germany's colonies, with
England controlling .he sea, and with the whole world
outaide of Germany In agreement that reparation to
Belgium is the sins qua non of the final reckoning,
such a prediction falls not fsr short Of absurdity.
But If the wsr lsats snother year, tha annual in
terest alone, on the German war debt, and on that of
other belligerents beside, will be almost or quite as
large as the whole snr.ual public revenue from taxa
tion before the war. The formidable question then
arises, what the attitude of the people will be toward
so crushing a burden of taxation at a time when
political dissension has begun again, when appeal to
patriotism and national safety haa lost Its force
through return of peaes, and especially with nations
whose people have been deluded Into thinking that
the enemy would foot the entire bill.
There Is left another question of post-bellum con
ditions still more Important to our own material
Interests. That Is the question whether Europe Its
people impoverished by war, its manufacturers sud
denly deprived of demands for war material, and. In
Germany'! case. Its whole productive industry tn
touch again with a foreign market lost since the
war began will not Instantly pour Into the rich
United States so Immense a mass of manufactured
gooda. offered at very low prices fixed by the urgent
needs of the European producer, as to cut off our own
manufacturers front tha market. This picture seems
on its face convincing; the result would sppesr to
follow the logic of the situation. Our own government
has already begun tentatively te discuss measures
which might be necessary to avert or modify the dis
organising effect on American Industry.
Tet tha prospect, on examination. Is not altogether
se clear as might be imagined. Home of our own most
experienced manufacturing authorities hold today that
these circumstances Insure an export trade from the
United 6tates to Europe, sfter wsr Is ever, of ab
normally Urge proportions.
These are among the obscure, but not the lass
formidable, problems which svea paaoe will bring-.
Nobody oan answer them confidently. Predictions of
tha moat disquieting sort are made regarding all ef
them. Perhaps, however. It will be to some extent
reassuring If we keep In mind the fsr mere disquieting
predictions made a year and a half agw regarding the
Inevitable and Immediate economic results of the
war Itself, virtually none of which has been fulfilled.

PUAINVIEW, Neb., pec. 1-To the
Editor of The Bee: According to all
paper reports. Mr. Wilson, our honorable
president, could not join Mr. Henry
Ford's peace propaganda. Why not?
Simply becauae he can't figure out any
peace proposition favorable to England
and Its allies.
Mr. Wilson, ss well ss his favorites, the
elites, ' Hue- that thty are heaten and
witness the struggle In desperation,
wltnout sny hopes to win. Mr. Wilson
sees his busom friend, John Bull, fall
with deep emotion, but has one ooneol
Uon. he sees his friend st home, the
ammunition factory owners, making mil
lions out of thla war. lie caree not for
the millions killed In Europe, nor for
the millions suffering In his own coun
try on account of this wsr, sll he cares
for Is to carry out hie own selfish plsns
and to help England to maintain Us
world pom er. He is not the same V llson
he used to be a year ago. when he or
dered a day for prayer, for the Ixrd
to end this war at once; now I think he
praya by himself for the continuance of
this war to the benefit of our ammuni
tion factories, aa well as for fcngland
to get ready and get on the winning side.
Old King Frederick the Great of Prus
sia used to say: "The Uord always goes
with the best army regardless of national
ity." Thla seems to be the case in this
present war. The alllea never were able
to check the central powers In their
offensive wsve; how can any eane man
expect them to put them out of t lelr
fortified positions If once In the defense.
Mr. v lisun ought to know this and come
to the conclusion that now Is the proper
time to have peace for humanity sake.
Furthermore, Mr. Wilson urges con
gress to spend $600,000,000 for his favorite
Idea, "preparedness." Whom Is he fear
ing? Is It Germany? The Oerman gov
ernment has shown that they will up
hold their friendship towards the United
fUates in spite of the Insults received from
our jingo president, for they are con
vinced of the fairness of the majority
of tha people of the Dmtrd otaixs ana
they know that his days as president
of the United States are counted. 1 hope
Mr. Wilson will be shown where he la
at by the next congress and without any
doubt the voters of the union will show
him where he belongs next fall.
AN OUU-TIMB DBMOCRAT.
Fraternity and Harmony.
OMAHA, Deo. t-To the Editor of The
Bee: Tour edition of November 29 gave
the Information that the Ancient Order of
United Workmen band had paraded the
downtown streets and that large banners
were displayed which showed the nature
of the parade to be a protest against the
recent action of the city commlsilnners
in deciding that only union bands would
be hired to plsy at the parks next sum
mer. The Musicians' union had supposed
that sll fraternal lodges were founded
on brotherhood embodied In the noble
purpose of the care of the alck, the
burial of the dead and the maintenance
of the dear ones left behind. This latest
Innovation of the Ancient Order of United
Workmen band gives the impression that
perhaps ths founder of the Ancient Order
of United Workmen forgot to Include the
principle of the "open shop." It may b
possible, however, that the brother pro
moters of this band yielded to the tempta
tion to use the prestige of the order for
speculative purposes and that maybe this
recent parade protest against the hiring
of union labor is not on a moral plane
with the pronounced tenets of the order.
For the sake of enlightenment on th'a
point the Mueicians' union will be thank
ful if some officer or members of the
Ancient Order of United Workmen wtll
