Sweden Showing IU Spirit.
Relations between Great Britain sod the
Scandinavian countries are coming to a focus,
nd the action of Sweden signifies that the
eutrals In northwest Europe are not entirely
pleased with the way the Allies have been con-
uctlng the war. The embargo on malls Is but
ne of the many points on which disputes torn,
hut the Incident brings to the front the whole
uestlon of the relations between neutrals ard
belligerents. The restrictions fmposed by Eng-
and are naturally resented by Sweden, and by
other neutrals, for that matter. Intercourse be-
ween countries at war and countries at peace
s admittedly subject to Interference by one or
the other of the belligerents, but how far th
nterference must be tolerated has never been
settled. It Is equally true that neither belllger-
nt has any right to Intercept or molest traffic
between noncombatant nations, and this Is what
the British are doing.
Sweden Is Just now very essential to the
Allies, as affording the most accessible route for
communication with Russia. The Swedes are
not especially friendly to Russia, for many
political and economic reasons, but have so far
maintained a strict neutrality on the point
Due to the desirability of keeping open this
route to Petrograd, the present issue may not
terminate in Sweden being forced Into the war.
Some modification of the present practice of the
British government will likely follow, but H is
not probable that a full recognition of the rights
contended for by the neutrals will Immediately
The United States is concerned In the matter
very deeply, for although no steps at reprisal
have yet been taken on this side, the provoca
tion has been quite as great and fully as annoy-
ng as that which has stirred the Swedes to the
show of spirit now manifest. ,

The only thing left for our great and good

No One-Term Plank for Wilson.
No little comment has been evoked by the
recent publication of a letter written by Presi
dent Wilson, repudiating the one-term plank,
the salient parts ot which we reprint in another
column. This epistle, which purports to have
been addressed to Congressman A. Mitchell
Palmer, In February, 1918, after his election as
president but a few weeks before his induction
into office, discusses the question dispassionately
enough, wit'- the usual arguments to support the
existing condition by which the people are free to
say at four-year Intervals how long they wish
to continue a president in the White House. But
that is really not so Important as the self-furnished
proof the letter gives that Mr. Wilson
never took his solemn platform covenant as
binding upon "himself, yet, kept his dissent to It
secret until after his election. Adverting to this,
the Outlook says:
We wish that Mr. Wilson had declared hlmaeif
on thla point while seeking the votes of his fellow cltU
sans; but that Is now a. bygone. Ha has now made his
position clear before soaking re-election or svaa re-
Plainly, therefore, Mr. Wilson did not make
his position clear while seeking his original
nomination and election, but, on the contrary,
let people vote for him under the belief thai
the platform declaration fori a single term and
Its unusual ' obligation of I the candidate to
this principle was accepted by him and would
be observed by him.
It now develops that the abandonment by the
democrats of all effort to submit the promised
one-term constitutional amendment Is charge
able to the influence of this letter of the presi
dent's. The ready-to-hand answer to the sugges
tion ot bad faith, however, is that the one-term
plank has been maltreated no worse than many
other parts of the Baltlmora platform, which,
despite Its asseverations, was built "to get in on,"
hut not "to stand on."

The Illinois vice commission has concluded
Its protracted Investigation with a report that
sweepingly charges a long list ot shortcomings
to the people ot the Sucker state. The docu
ment apparently has the fatal weakness, Inher
ent la Its kind. It proves too much. The report
hits in every direction and at many things as
causes tor the condition complained of. The
Investigators lay much stress on low wages for
women as the principal contributing cause for
moral lapsatton. This Is a favorite allegation
ot vice hunters, who never fail to assert that
lack of sufficient pay leads lovely woman to
stoop to folly, and sometimes tbey tlx a minimum
below which morals melt and vice Is embraced.
In this case the danger point Is set at f 8 per
week. Aside from this ever recurring charge,
the report, so tar as furnished the public, dis
closes nothing ot especial novelty, nor that
could not have been readily ascertained by apply
ing to the chief ot police or the district' attorney.
Poverty is not the principal cause of Immor
ality, and It Is a gratuitous insult to the hun
dreds ot thousands of honest girls and women
who toll for low wages to insinuate that they
are morally weaker than their sisters who are
better housed and fed. Nor Is a minimum
wage law the remedy. Wages are too low, when
they fall below the point where decent living is
possible, but this is an economic and not a moral
One thing is certain: The situation in Illinois
can be no worse than is described. It will be
interesting to watch the process by which the
legislators apply the remedy. Lawgivers from
the time ot Moses down have grappled with this
question, and it is yet undisposed of.

Wilson and Second Term !
alien paragraphs of letter written by
prealdeat-eleet la retmary, 1S13, repudiat
ing oae-term plank of platform oa which
ha had just bee a elected.
T WAS characteristically considerate of you to
ask my views with regard to the joint resoiti-
tlon which has Just come over from the house
to the senate with regard to the presidential term.
I have not hitherto said anything about thla que,
tlon, because I had not observed that there was sny
evidence that the public was very much Interested
In It. I must have been mistaken In thla, else the
senate would hardly have acted so promptly upon it.
"The question Is simply thla: Shall our presidents
be free,, so far as tha law Is concerned, to aet-k a
second term of four years, or shall they be limited by
constitutional amendment to single term of four
years, or to a single term extended to six years?
"I can approach tha subject from a strictly Im
personal point of view, because I shall moat cheep
fully abide by tha Judgment of my party and tha
publle as to whether I shall be a candidate for the
presidency again In 191ft- I abaolutely pledge myself
to resort to nothing but public opinion to decide that
"Tha president ought to be abaolutely deprlxed
of every other means of deciding it. He can be. I
shall use to tha utmost every proper Influence within
rr.f reach to sea that he Is, before the term to whldt
I have been elected la out That side of the matter
need disturb no one.
"And. yet. If he la deprived of every other means
of deciding the question, what becomes of tha argu
ment for a constitutions! limitation to a single term?
Tha argument Is not that It Is clearly known now
Just how long each president should remMn In office.
IFour years la too long a term for a president who la
not tha true spokesman of the people, who 1s Im
posed upon and does not lead. It Is too short a term
for a president who is doing or attempting a great
work of reform and who has not had time to finish It.
"To change the term to sis years would be to In
crease the likelihood of its being too long, without
any assurance that It would. In happy cases, be long
enough. A fixed constitutional limitation to a single
tern of office Is hllghly arbitrary and unsatisfactory
from every point of view.
"The argument for It rests upon temporary con
ditions which can easily be removed by law. Presl.
dents. It is said, are effective for one-half of their
term only because they devote their attention during
the last two years of the term to building up tha
influences, and above all the organisation, by which
they hope and purpose to secure a second nomination
"It Is their Illicit power, not their legitimate in
fluence with the country, that tha advocates of a
constitutional change profess to be afraid of. and I
heartily sympathise with them. It is Intolerable thst
any president should be permitted to determine who
should succeed him himself or another by patronayo
or coercion, or by any sort of control of the ma
chinery by which delegates to tha nominating con
vention are chosen.
"There ought never to be another presidential
nominating convention; and there need never be an
other. Several of tbe states have successfully solved
that dlffloulty with regard to the choice of their
governors, end federal law ran solve It in the same
way with regard to the choice of presidents. Thu
nominations should be made directly by tha people
at tha polls.
"Conventions should determine nothing but party
platforms and should be made up of the men who
would be expected. If elected, to carry those plat
forms Into effect. It Is not necessary to attend to
the people's business by constitutional amendment If
you will only actually put the business into the peo
ple's own hands.
"I think it may safely be assumed that that will
be done within the next four years; for It can be done
by statute; tt need not wait for constitutional change.
That being dona, the questions of the presidential term
can be discussed oa Its merits.
"The present fact la that the president is held
responsible for what happens In Washington in every
large matter, and so long as he Is commanded to lead
be la surely entitled to a certain amount of power-
all the power he can get from the support end con
victions and opinions of his fellow countrymen; and
he ought to be suffered to use ttiat power against
his opponents until his work 's dona. It will be veiy
difficult for him te abuse It. He holds It upon suffer.
anoe, at the pleasure of public opinion. Every ene
else, his opponents included, has access to opinion, as
he has. lie must keep the confidence of the country
by earning It, for be can keep It In no other way.
'Put the present customary limitation of two
terms Into the constitution. If you do not trust the
people to take care of themselves, but make it two
terms (not one, because four years la often two long).
and give the president a chance to win the full service
by proving himself tit for It."

The Facta In the Case.
HOLDREOE, Neb., Jan. 1. To the
Editor of Tha Bee: I want to make a
statement In answer to the letter of
Governor Morehead which you published.
He says ha got a letter from L. N. Miller
of the Hampton hotel, claiming there waa
something wrong about the death of the
woman that went to meet a man at an
other hotel. Why did he not say the
The facts in the case are theae: The
man was here before the woman came.
She came In on the second section of
No. S, Christmas night. They registered
ss man and wlfo. My night clerk showed
them to their room after 11 o'clock. About
o'clock they called for a doctor, and
within ten minutes the clerk had two
doctors In the hotel to see, her. When I
got up Drs. Anderson and Newman said
there was no hope for her, and a short
time afterwards they pronounced her
dead. I Immediately called the coroner
and he made a thorough examination
and pronounced her death to be caused
from heart disease. The undertaker re
moved the body, which was shipped out
on No. at 12:32 o'clock.
I saw the coroner the next morning and
we called the county attorney In and
stated the case to him. They decided
there was no use holding an Inquest, aa
there were two doctors with her when
she died, and that there was no foul play
whatever. The case is open for any In
vestigation that any one wants to make.
This man Miller knew all tho facts be

could have gotten them from the coroner
or the county attorney. H. H. REED,

SILVER. CREEK, Neb.. Jan. 19.-To the
Editor of The Boo: As an old soldier of
the civil war, speaking only for myself,
but believing that I voice, at least in some
measure, tho ;neral sentiment of my
comrades, I desire to express my heart
felt appreciation of the action of tho
State Board of Agriculture at Its meet
ing In ordering that hereafter all veterans
of the civil war wearing the Grand
Army button shall be admitted free to the
State fair on all days of the week.
It Is not that we are to be saved the
half dollar at the gate. When first In
formed of the action of tha board no
such though entered my mind, not do I
for an Instant suppose that Charles Graff
and his committee that recommended It
were actuated by any such motive.
Nevertheless, I suppose that it Is true
that many old soldiers will hereafter at
tend the State fair who otherwise would
not have done so by reason ot the ex
pense which they could 111 afford. Rather,
It la this, thst the thought ot that very
grateful action of the board filled me
Hke a flood with memories of that four
years of war, and I was glad to be again
reminded that for our services of more
than fifty years ago we still held aa
old soldiers a warm place In the hearts
of the American people.
If, possibly, any one laments that the
gate receipts at the Btate fair wilt be
lessened, which -I doubt, he need only to
remember that the days of the Grand
Army of the Republic are numbered; that
there la no field, from which they can
draw recruits, and that their rapidly de
creasing numbers point unerringly to the
time when all shall have answered the
final roll call and gone down tha silent
way. Not long hence only one old vet
eran will pass the gate, and In silent
reverence all will do him honor. .
