The Inference to be drawn from the award
of the democratic national convention to St,
Louia la that the party leaders are convinced
Missouri Is shaky and that they wll. have dlffl
cutty in holding it in the democratic column,
where it has been continuously since the civil
war with the single exception when It gave Its
electoral vote to Taft in 1 90S. The strongest
plea put up for St. Louis, according to the re
port of the proceedings, was that the convention
was needed there to hold old Missouri in line,
and we do not donbt it, although it Is question
able whether eveu the concession of this prize
will accomplish the object.
What makes Missouri shaky from the dem
ocratic standpoint 1 easy to see, for the friends
of Champ Clark still remember the dubious deal
that made Wilson the nominee at Baltimore in
stead of Clark, and the later reward of the man
who turned the trick with the best cabinet port
folio. Missouri, too, has a lot of democrats who
do not approve the president's handling of our
foreign relations, his flirting with woman suf
frage, his sacrifice of American interests In
Mexico and the numerous other things "not la

Good Job Well Done.
The announcement from the Belgian relief
committee that urgent need for food no longer
exista in that country is welcome news for
Americans. Not that our people are weary of
giving, but because they are glad to know that
conditions In the little kingdom of grief have
been so greatly Improved. Restoration of in
dustry and the normal activities of social life
there bad been such a to remove the danger of
privation from lack of food. The generous
response from America last winter to the call
for aid for Belgium saved millions from suffer
ing, and grateful acknowledgement nag been
made of this service. Our people have ever
been ready to share their bounty with the
needy, but this was the biggest Job of Its kind in
recent years. It was tackled In a spirit of con
fidence, and the work was carried through with
ardor to success, and America is ready now for
the next call.
Fan-Americanism Not a Novelty.
While thev democrats have raised a Joyous
clamor over the president's Pan-American ut
terances, as though Mr. Wilson had entered
on an entirely new phase of American statecraft,
as a matter of fact, this policy is not a new one!
and only the present straits of the majority
party at this time lead it to pretending that a
discovery has been made. From the time of
James Monroe down the attitude of the United
States towards the other American governments
has been the ame, always helpful, never ag
gressive, and patient to the last degree. It la
true that some ot the urgency of self-interest
that might have fostered the policy in the be
ginning no longer exists, but It is not alto
gether divested of the protective quality that
first recommended it adoption and practice. .
For fifty years republican presidents
sought 'to cultivate better and closer relations
with the several peoples of America; even
Orover Cleveland surpassed Mr. Wilson In bis ad
vocacy of an .AU-American union, while he
pressed to the actual verge of war with England
on account of Veneiuela. When Roosevelt and
Taft sent missions to the South and Central
American countries, democrats seneered at their
effort aa "dollar doplomary." Now a single con
ference, dealing with but one phase of the
complicated relations developing out of the In
creasing intercourse between the United 8tatea
and its American neighbors, transform the
president Into the Paladin of Pan-American
unity and harmony.
While shouting thus, the party clacquer are
simply trying to divert public attention from
the weakness of the administration In other
directions, but the trick Is too thin to fool any
one who doesn't want to be tooled.
One Point for the Straphanger.
Slowly but surely are human r'ghts being
established above the ring of the cash register.
The latest victory in the direction of amelior
ating modern man' unhappy condition comes
from Washington, but not from congress or the
cabinet. A Judge there decided that a trap
hanger ha some right that even a motormaa
or conductor It bound to respect, and one of
these right Is to hang on to the strap of hi
choice, regardless ot the raucous command to
"step forward In the car." Passengers are not
pawns, says the court, and are not to be shifted
at the will of the trolley car commanders. This
is a belated recognition by th court at a right
that every seatless rider on a street car has felt
to be his, but has hesitated to asser(. But it
will yet lack something ot comfort for the Indi
vidual who rides many weary miles, swinging
cn a strap and wondering If none of bU fellow
passengers have homes. It does show, however,
that the condition ot the straphanger Is not ab
Over In Illinois a special session of the leg.
islature has Just concluded Its work, having been
called together to re-enact failed and overlooked
appropriations. Here In Nebraska. Instead ot
railing on th legislature to authorise drafts on
the treasury according to the constitution, we
simply go to the supreme court and have the
constitution suspended by Judicial construction.
Why should the democrats go to all the
trouble and expense now of holding a big president-nominating
convention when Colonel Maher
and Governor. Morehead hare done the whole
Job by filing that autograph collection with Sec
retary of State Pool? With the president'
came on the Nebraska primary ballot, every
thing else becomes surplusage.

If that decision stands that th conductor
cannot make a passenger "move up front," all

Twice Told Tales 1
The Btery ef Creatleaf
William Dean Howells, the well known America a
author and critic, tells a Shakeapeare story.
"In Stratford," he says, "during one of the Shake
speare jubilees, an American tourist approached an
aged villager In a smock and said:
" 'Who Is this chap, Shakespeare, anyway?'
" 'H were a writer, sir.'
" 'Oh, but there are lot of writer. Why do you

ST. MART, Neb.. Dec. T.-To th Editor
of The Bee: I would like to expreaa my
opinion In regard to tbe actions of our
secretary of state In regard to the not
guaranteeing safety and protection to the
.Henry Ford peace mission. H says that
this government cannot guarantee pro
tection to any person or persons within
th war Son unles such person or per
sona go there on necesaary business.
What In hla opinion would be necessary
This nation was ready to go to war on
account of tha (inking of the Lusitanla
because some Americans lost their Uvea.
How many were there among those that
were there on necessary businees? Prob
ably none. If some ammunition manu
facturer were to go there to close a deal
for the furfilshing of material for the
laugterlng of humanity, or th closing
of a great financial deal, or It some
millionaire were go for the benefit ot
hi health, he would consider it a neces
sity and promise him or them protec
tion.' The war munition manufacturer
have spent a vast amount ot money in
perfecting their planU and naturally
want to prolong th war for profit and
are opposed to any one Interfering with
the arrangements and must be protected.
.But this government cannot afford to
protect a peace mission because It does
not deem It a necessity.
Christ came on earth on a peace mis
sion to advocate peace on earth, good
will to men. Henry Ford goes to Europe
on a similar mission, but our preaent
secretary gf state doea not seem to con
sider such a mlaaton necesaary. But if it
