Hold Open Council Meetings.
The Omaha city council has Just tried the
experiment of sitting in the open aa an excise
board. Its members profess to be so well satis
fied with the result that they propose to con
tinue the practice. No good reason can be ad
vanced for the transaction of any public busi
ness by a public body behind closed doors. All
sessions of the city council should be open to
the publio at all times, and especially those ses
sions which have to do with the granting1 of
saloon licenses. Closed doors and secrecy are
always suggestive of a desire to cover up some
thing. No suspicion should be permitted to at
tach to the transaction of public business at
any time. The city commissioners know this.
and for their own protection should never sit In
Remodeling the Commission.
Experience has demonstrated that the Inter
state Commerce commission as at present con
stituted la not properly adjusted to meet the re
quirements of its purpose. Growth of the trans
portation Industry In the United States has been
so rapid, and It has developed in so many unex
pected ways, each presenting Its own peculiar ser
ies of problems, that the complications conse
quent have far outstripped the scope of the Inter
state Commerce commission. This fact is rec
ognized by the commission Itself and the report
now before congress asking for an enlargement
of the body does not come altogether as a sur
prise. Students of the transportation problem were
agreed that the country should be subdivided
Into districts, wherein the conditions were so
nearly similar as to make uniformity of control
comparatively easy. This plan Is suggested by
the commission lteelf. It does not comprehend
any recession from the theory under which the
commission was formed, or the principle upon
which It has operated. By the setting up of
qualified tribunals within properly defined dis
tricts, the questions arising within these districts
may be much more readily adjusted than Is at
present possible. There need be no more con
flict between these tribunals than there Is at
present between the several federal district and
circuit courts. While final review may be left
to the general commission at Washington, local
matters will be adjusted within their own dis
trict. This plan should be eventually so carried
cut that possible conflict between national and
state laws governing rights and conditions for
the Industry may be harmonized to a point where
friction will vanish.
Only on some such basis can the transporta
tion industry of the country be given the proper
protection without In any degree abandoning the
control which the public should have over It.,

History Repeating- Itself.
Our one war with France grew out of a sit
uation exactly similar to that which now con
fronts the two nations. In the earliest years ot
the United States' existence, the French under
took to assert a right to overhaul and search
American vessels and to Impress seamen found
thereon, to remove passengers, and to otherwise
outrage American rights. - This was promptly
and properly resented, and a war of short dura
tlon resulted, followed by a peace which restored
the friendship that has since continually sub
sisted between the two nations.
It is surprising that at this time the French
would again undertake a practice that they
must know will be vigorously resented by this
government. Our history Is full of incidents in
which the United States has gone to the limit In
asserting Ha right to protect any who may
properly be under Its flag. In thus asserting itr
own right. It as cheerfully recognised the same
right In other nations. The Trent affair Is cited
again as an Illustration of this.
Without knowledge ot the text of the note
dispatched by Secretary Lansing to Paris, it
may be assumed that It firmly states the posi
tion ot the United States on this question. It
Is due to our standing as the foremost among
neutral nations to Insist that this neutrality be
respected by all, and no exception can be made
In the case of France.

Throe weeks ago. under the title "Free Ppeech In
Pstersoi," The Outlook told the alory t f the second
expulsion from Pateraon, without any legal proceed
ing, of Elixabeth Ourley Flynn. lAter aha put
on trial on a charge of exciting riot and lewlessness
by a speerh made long ago. She waa acquitted, anj
her follower, and many alao who do not at all'agre
with the propaganda of tha Induatrlal Workera of
the World, of which ahe la an exponent, regarded
her acquittal aa a victory for free speech.
What la ahe-thla Elixabeth Ourley Flynn. who
waa tried again In Pateraon laat week and quickly
acquitted? A at range aort of woman, so hated that
a cltya lawful authorities frankly break the law
to keep her out, so championed that society women,
factory girls, teachers, writers, lawyers, poor students.
and folks who never aw her "chipped In" to raise
her a defense fund what Is she?
To silk-mill owners and capitalist generally ahe

She's a little woman. Is Ourley Flynn. and Irish

aide her sreat-grandfather Ryan was killed In battle
with the English, and her grandfather Flynn fleJ
to America with a price on his head for sabotage
against tha British government. "Sabotage In Fenian

plains that when forbidden their Immemorial rlKht of
fishing In certain rlvere he and, his aasoclatea pola-
oned tha streams, saying, "If we can't have our own.
neither shall the English."
Blxty years later Miss Flynn finds the wrongs
of the proletariat more moving than tha cause of
Irish nationalism, but her antagonism to constituted
authority seems Inbred. She waa reared without
girlhood, with almoat no childhood, for at U aha made
her flrat speech aa a "materialistic aoclallat" before
her father'a club. At 17 she and he were mrrested tor

srreated once in New Tork, once In Miaaoula, Mont.,
once In Spokane, Wash., twice In Philadelphia, twice

Elixabeth Flynn In tha laat four years has led
three big strikes: the struggle of tha textile workers In
the mills of Iwrence, Masa.; then m short but bitter
waiters' strike In New York City; and In 191S, eight
months of war between tha silk-mill owners and their
employes In Tatteraon, N. J. In .each struggle, she

Figures Just made public by the Department
ot Agriculture place the farm value ot the
principal crops for the year at more than
$6,250,000,000. To this must be added the
value of the minor yields and the live stock
output, which brings the total up to more than
110.000.000,000. Thla enormous sum la four
times the total amount of the foreign trade ot
the United States, concerning which so great a
fuss Is made. The total Is the most eloquent
tribute that could possibly be paid to the agri
cultural Industry of the country, it Is ao em-
phatlo In ita nature that It seems to Impress
even the democrats, who have hitherto shown a
determination to treat the farmer aa a negllgl
ble factor in the affairs of the nation.
Borne new records have been made, the
value ot corn, wheat, oats and hay exceeding
that ot any previous year, while cotton failed to
establish a new record. It has a value of more
than $75,000,000 above last year's crop. King
Cotton,' however, has been set back to fourth
place, corn, wheat and hay, all coming ahead
of the southern staple in the order of value
Even winter wheat alone is priced at figures
(20.000,000 above the cotton yield for the year.
Nebraska's share in this tremendous total If
such aa not only establishes the Importance of
this state as an agricultural producer, but
means the continued prosperity of its people

Beatrice Express: Omaha's police department,
tired of tha wave of crime which haa reaulted In a
murder or two dally for aome time, now proposes a
general shakeup on the police force. What appears
to be needed In tha Nebraska metropolis Is more po
lice and a general cleaning up of the criminal classes
that are making that city their headquarters.
Newman Grove Reporter: Omaha police authorities
say tha parole law Is responsible for lots of crime.
Nowadays a man hardly gets settled down In the
penitentiary until he la paroled and turned loose te
fix up a freah batch of cuatedneas. No one wants a
man confined In the pen any longer than Is absolutely
necessary, but It does look like the parole officials
could get along without being In quite such a ble
hurry. At least, the prisoners ought to be held until
they show substantial evidence of being worthy of
Beatrice Ex preset A recent report by the Omaha
Water board emphatically disputes tha stereotyped
claim that municipal ownership la a failure. Tha re
port ahows, according to The Omaha Bee. that for
the three yeara of municipal ownerehlp ending June
30, 1915. patrona paid Ha9.000 less for water, in addition
to having to their credit a fund of nearly 11,000,000

Figures of that kind seems to be conclusive evidence
of the ability of a municipality to run a water plant.

supervision to keep It straight It cannot be con

be made a safe place for any one to go and transact

and meet out proper punishment to them. When a
disposition of this kind Is shown they can rest assured

Industry on the ninth of thla month left
their headquarters In thla city to make a

that twenty-One of Mr. Armour'a super
intendents, under the command of the
beef trust s political field marshal. John
O'Hern, was there to receive them. These
emmlnent men gave timely notice through
the press and otherwise of their prear

management to have everything In order

Tha Industrial unrest, not commercial

kitchen cabinet, the politicians and the
munition manufacturers say prepared

the Issue. Every friend of freedom knows

How to Abolish War.
ST. MART. Neb., Dec. U.-To the
Editor of The Bee: Preparedness and
war being the topic of the day, various
opinions are expressed, but all agree on
one thing and that ia that the laboring
and producing class (those whose bones
are supposed to be left to bleach on tha
battlefield) are all tired and disgusted
with the destruction and suffering caused
by war. and that only those who are
profiting In dollars or hoping thereby
to gain notoriety and fame ana wno
never expect to get within amelllng dis
tance of gunpowder are In favor of war.
Thla being the sentiment of the people,
why not abolish wart But you era Im
mediately aaked: How are ws going to
I would suggest to let the people say
whether or not to engage In aggressive
war: There must be an aggreeslve be

In favor ot an asreaaive war on any
nation, and yet we are In dally fear tnai
war will be declared against some for
eign nation. Why? Becaueo we have
delegated the war-making power to a
few. a handful of congreaamen. a power
we ahould have retained ourselves.
The people being In favor of peace.
why not make other natlona a fair
proposition for peace. It la certainly
worth the effort. Many say they wouia
be In favor of disarmament which would
Insure peace, but that they are arraiu
of tha other fellowa leat they attack
us If they saw a favorable cnance. n
do we know that thoae other fellowa don t
feel Just as we do, and are In favor oi
preparedness for the same reason. We
hava not asked them, have we?
Thla government la In a position now
to make the proposition for universal
peace. Suppose we were to ssy to the
other natlona. "We are ready to extend
to you our hand of brotherly love and
fellowship; we will gradually reduce our
army and navy and warring efficiency If
you will do the aame." How do we know
they would not hall tha offer with de
light and be aver thankful to ua lor

show their good will toward ua Why
not make the iropoaalT It they refuse

Is sufficient: there will never bo lasting
peace so long as there Is preparation for
war. So aa we sow, so shall we reap.
Field Marshal General von Htndenberg
recently said: "Tha German people are
tired of war and Its destruction and
would be glad to return to their homes.
Can there be any doubt that tha people
of the other belligerent natlona don't
feel Just aa the Germans do? I sea no
reason for doubt And yet they cannot
have peace. Ia short they all want
peace, yet they all must fight. Why?
Because they hava delegate! tha war

And here and there a stunted fir
That had aurvlved to tell the tale.
And lo. from out this wilderness.
Where revelled waste and sad decay
All sllentlv a little brook
Through aloomy shadows found It way;
This little brook had seeped snd seeped
'Neath mossy logs that long had rottM
And at last emers-ed on a sun-lit shore
With its banks all blue-for-get-me-notted.
Bark in the bog whence It emerged
The brook had spread and spread and

All shimmering with sun-dew gloss.
And this sluggish brook that seemed Inert
That aeemed to refuse to concentrate
Was the one that nature had employed
Her rarest beauties to create:
And I marvelled long at these wondere
Till the happy thought came to me
That what seems watte In our lives after
May prove to be real efficiency.
And we may struggle thro' doubt and
And waste and decay may ever flout u
