Suspended, Not Settled. j
While the senate h-ts voted by sixty-eight to j
f( intern to lay on the table the Gore sod all j
(.imilar resolutions and amendments, it has not j
l Psl of the question on Its merits. The
vte will be hailed by the administration sup
poiters ss a Rreat victory for the president, but
I hsa only served to ruspend, and not to settle,
It Is too had that the request of Mr. Wilson,
that a square test vote ho taken, could not be
carried out. In the list of those voting aye on
the motion to table the Gore resolution will be
found the names of many who have voiced their
opposition to the president's policy, among them
Senator Stone, chairman of the foreign relations
committee, who said on the floor he did not
agree with the president. Rome who voted
"no" did It because of devotion to "senatorial
courtesy," which forbids thus shutting off de
bate on a resolution, and others because hungry
for patronage which has been hung up.
Temporsrlly, the action will afford relief to
the White House, but the disturbance in the
lower house has not yet been quelled entirely,
and the president's letter to Mr. Pott may pro
duce a result there the senate could not attain.
The failure of the democrats to fearlessly face
a situation created by themselves will hardly
astonish anyone who has closely watched the
course of the party. Instead of disposing of
the issue, these trimmers are left where they
csn carry on their fire In the rear tactics,
always hiding their duplicity behind a pretense
The dodge Is not calculated to Impress for
eign powers with any undue sense of the rigid
ity of the support that congress is willing to
give to the president. Mr. Wilson may proceed
with his negotiations, assured that at the most
embarrassing time he will again have to reckon
with the congress.
Wheat Price And the Visible Supply.
The steady slipping down of the option price
of wheat la simply an eloquent evidence of the
operation of the law of supply and demand
against the efforts of the speculator. The
break In futures Is due to natural causes. Re
ports show that the visible supply of wheat in
the United States is the greatest In history,
that stocks In farmers' hands are larger than
ever and that the world's supply Is at top mark.
Last year a bumper crop of wheat was raised,
rot only In the United States, but ail over the
world. The International Agricultural bureau
at Rome reports the yield for 1915 as being 135
per cent of that for 1914. Recent Information
from England is to the effect that the British
government has lately purchased wheat to the
value of $82,000,000 In Argentina, Australia
and elsewhere outside of the United States, the
largest single purchase of wheat over recorded.
All visible farts seem to be combined agalnat
the speculator who has sought to maintain the
Inflated price of wheat.
Building Up a New Army.
The house committee on military affairs Is
reported to have its new army bill ready to sub
mit for final action, having made some' exten
sive modifications since its plan was outlined
several days ago. Now the total of the first
line defense army Is placed at 700,000, about
half the numbee estimated as needed in the
War college's outline of a proper military pol
icy. This, however, Is an increase over the
original plan of the committee, which would
have provided 425,000 men for t" e first call.
The National Ouard on Its new footing is in
cluded in the estimate, together with 100,000
men to be supplied through summer training
camps, and 147,000 men in the regular army.
The maximum for the National Guard is now
fixed at 425,000, to be attained within five
The feature of the measure that will most
commend Itself to the students of the military
problem will be the Increase in the regular
establishment. While an army of 147,000 is
not especially formidable in these days. It will
provide a solid nucleus on which to form the
great force that will be needed for defense,
should occasion arise. If kept recruited to its
possible strength, ' Instead of being maintained
in skeleton form. It will provide trained soldiers
for the reserve army at a rate now impossible.
Recruiting the National Guard to Ha strength
of 425.000 within five years presents a more
doubtful aspect tfcan does the maintenance of
the "regular" army.
The uses of the summer camp as a source of
supply of men trained in military practice and
methods may be questioned. A few weeks
spent in camp, performing some of the routine
of a Bonder's life and listening to lectures on
the theory of arms contributes very little train
ing of value. Fads of any kind have no place
In the army. However, the question of national
defense Is slowly working to a solution.
Auto Owners Are Loyal.
Nebraska automobile owners have quietly es
tablished another record, one quite as creditable
as any of the achlevementa in more spectacu
lar ways. Out of a total of 59,000 registered
for 1915, the secretary of ktate reports more
than 52,000 have taken out license for 1916.
This shows that the automobile owners ap
preciate the several advantages of the registra
tion law, and are willing to comply with Its re
quirements. Most of the money collected for
the license fee goes Into the road fund, which
means a direct benefit to all who use the public
highways. Roads improved for pleasure uses
are also available for business, and the auto Is
thus doing a considerable service for every
body. Prompt registration of machines secures
for the owner protection of the law in other
ways that are worth while, and the record now
made shows the great majority of autolsts arc
responsible and at all times loyal to public interests.

Thla being the case, what I the proper coure, the
writer asks, for the central station company, tha
contractor, and the manufacturer of lighting equip

In lighting rather than for the cheap, garish effect.
He goes on: "Specifically, at the present time this
means for Interior work, In much occupied rooms,

for exteriors the use of concealed flood lights In
place of the old outlining Idea. Kven the electric slcn

hence more effective. In such cases the adoption of
these Ideas usually means greater first coat and mora
electrical energy used for lighting than in the rasa
of a cheap makeshift, but these are Justified by the
better result to consumer and public; It Is, of
course, true that there are still many consumers Who
Insist upon glaring methods of Illumination and will
have nothing else, but tha combined efforts of all
who sell Illumination, If exerted In the right direc

on the scarlet fever situation and sug
gest something that may have a very
important bearing on the controlling epi
demic. The fever la not spread by some vola

The thing is done by actual contact, or
by dlseared person being In contact with

and the other person coming In contact

There Is one other way In which the
virus may he transmitted, that Is by the
diseased child coughing or sneeslng di
rectly In the face of another child. This
Is, of course, very rarely an active cause
of the disease.
In the esse of milk transmitting the
disease, the milk Is contaminated, or the
m'lk containers are contaminated, by
dirty hands, so the main question la a
question of contaminated hands.
Tha hand being the carriers, they
should be covered In alt case where the
child m'ngles with other children or
goes Into movies or churches, etc., where
other children go. The mother who
wishes to protect her children from scar

diseases will provide .the youngsters with

have them wear them whenever there I
