Rights of Non combatants.
In the turmoil and stress of the war, with
I liferent striving for advantage, certain fun
damentals are In dsnger of being lost eight of.
One of these Is that nonoombatants are en
titled to Immunity from attack, no matter where
situated. Unfortified towns are not to be bom
barded, merchant vessels are not to be destroyed
without first having the safety of those on board
Made secure, and in other ways the ruleg of
warfare, established under strreement and stip
rorted by International law are supposed to pro
lect those who for any reason are not actually
engaged In the conflict. Thene provisions gen
erally have been Ignored In the present war, and
noncombatants have bec-n exposed almost as if
they were active participants in the conflict.
It is not alone a question of neutral rights
thst is Involved In the debate now In progress
at Washington, but a question of the safety of
the Innocent and the helpless. The submarine
brought the question to its acute stage, but the
air craft Is quite a incapable of distinguishing
between armed and unarmed cities as the sub
mersible is to make Its choice between ships.
Raids across enemy lines by air craft, dropping
bomb indiscriminately, have done much dam
age and cost many lives, almost Invariably among
those who have no part in the war except to
suffer. That these operations have been con
fined exclusively to territory of belligerents can
hardly be taken as justification of the practice.
The stibmsrine In Its unrestricted operation
Is a menace to neutrals as well as to noncom
batants. I'nless It can be restrained by rules'
that reasonably ran be applied the terror and
waste of war will be immeasurably Increased.
The right to "Joy ride" on an armed ship Is not
the main point Involved. It is that belligerents

Keep the Courts Together.
It would bo a great accommodation to the
public as well as facilitate the work to be done,
If the new municipal court could be located In
the county building In close proximity to the
county and district courts. Under the law cre
ating the municipal court, It devolve upon the
city authorities to provide the necessary quarters,
which in this case means to foot the rent .bill,
for it seems impracticable to find space for the
court rooma in the city hall except by ejecting
some of Its present occupants, while by a little
rearrangement the court house could doubtless
be made to take rare of a few new Inhabitants
without serious inconvenience. If thl be pos
sible and practicable It behooves t'je mayor and
the council to get together with the county
board and work the problem out, remembering
all the time that both represent the same set
of taipayers out of whose pockets roines the
money for the expense account.
Hawaii and the National Defense.
Governor Plnkham of Hawaii expresses some
gloomy views of the predicament of that island
territory in an address recently delivered be
fore the National Ouard at a banquet. In urg
ing the need of better provision for the defense
or the Islands, he refer to the possibility of
Hawaii being 'starved to death," by which be
la supposed to mean the complete cutting off of
commerce. Whatever apprehensions the gover
nor may have are founded on conditions that
will soon be remedied. In both the senate and
bouse bills, creating a new army for national
defense, more adequate provision Is made for
Hawaii than for the mainland.
The Importance of Hawaii in connection with
the military problem of the Pacific ocean and
the western coast of the United State I not
underestimated, and Its exposed condition Is
also well understood. Pacifists have suggested
that It be abandoned, along with the Philippines,
but this proposition haa deservedly been scouted.
It Is not to be thought of, unless we are will
ing to risk the exposure of the Pacific coast to
easy attack from a foe operating with Hawaii
as a base. The problem of defense of the Island
ha been well considered, and will be carefully
worked out. Order and good government must
be maintained there, as well a elsewhere in
the United States, and proper attention paid to
the military and naval exigencies of the case.
A to the commerce of Hawaii, it 1 better
provided for than any other division of Uncle
8am' sea borne traffic A splendid fleet under
the American flag piles regularly between Ha
waiian and Pacific ports, and this I being In
cieaaed. If the other sections of the country
were a well looked after as Is Hawaii, little
cause for complaint would exist.
Fontenelle With a Feather.
The painting of Logan Fontenelle, famous
chieftain of the Omaha Indiana, arrayed In a
robe and wearing a feather, may be something
of a shock to those who have accustomed them
selves to thinking of him as wearing only white
man' garb. Nothing could be more appropriate
than to show this great man In the costume that
correctly designate hi standing among his peo
ple. The warrior wore a feather In hi hair to
show that he waa a warrior; the chieftain wore
the robe of office to show that be waa a chief
tain. Logan Fontenelle was an Indian, and he
was also a warrior and a chieftain, and as
leader among his people he must have worn on
proper occasion the costume that bespoke hi
rank and dignity. No tribe of all the American
Indiana possesses a richer fund of legendary
lore, nor more impressive ceremonials than the
Omahas, In all of which It waa required that
Fontenelle be deeply veraed. No great service
of hi to hi own and to an alien race can be cor
rectly gauged by his garb. Fontenelle was a man

OMAITA. March 7 -To the Fdltnr of
The Ree: On the queptlon of competition
In public utility service, which eery city
tas raised periodically, the following ex
tract from a paier read before a recent
meeting or the National Klectrlc Lighting
asocHtlon by C. B. Attchlson, member of
the I'u.ille Service commission of Oregon,
Is In point snd should bo suggestive to
Tf the state Is to Invite private enter
prise to perform Its governmental func
tions. It must deal as fairly with the
utility as It epecta the utility to lenl
fiilrlv with It. Tho Investment Invited
must -to the extent that it la prudently
and hntientlv made. le plven such rea
sonable SMfeRuards that In the lonir run
rapltnl will continue to he invested In
such enterprises. It has often been
pointed out tht public utility invest
ments are of a fixed chnrnrter: the prop
erty stays where It Is put, ami the owner
cannot load Jt upon the cars and take
lr elsewhere when market conditions lu
not suit him In the locality where he has
made his Investment. In no way can
the permanency snd attractiveness of the
puhllo utility service be Impaired more
quickly than by unnecessary and useless
cometitlon admitted or permitted In an
already Insufficient field. There Is no
denying that competition often brings
temporary gains to present consumers,
and there can be no doubt It Is sometimes
neceiisary as a disciplinary measure for
a utility which haa failed In ita duty end
for the protection of the public like
wise there can be no doubt that unneces
sary or destructive competition ultimately
does the community more harm than It
accomplishes temporary benefit; that
even for temporary benefits there come
a time of renayment with interest, and
that the effects on ihe state as a whole,
are deleterious. The most aggravated
case of all enters Into competition an
unregulated free lance against a regu
lsted, privately owned utility. This sit
uation Is met elsewhere, and can be met
here by proper certificate of convenience
and necessity law. which will permit the
working out of a central, well rounded
follcy. and simultaneously secure to the
ocal communities permanently all the
beneflta they now secure temporarily
through barbaric competitive welfare. It
can he conservatively stated that the
rate of return which the utility Investor

a schedule made by a rate regulating
body, would be leSMered In this state at
least Vi per cent per annum. An amount
roughly equal to 10 per cent of the total
exlstlnif utility rate schedule Is now be
ing paid needlessly as a premium for the
privilege of setting utility corporattona
onto each other to see which can first he
bankrupted. The state is strewn with
financial wrecks left after such unneces
sary competitive storms have ended, and
even the beachcombers have nothing to
ahow for their accumulation.
It seems to me this Is sound regardless
of whether one favors public or private

him of stealing. The burning. It Is al

their orgies elsewhere. But. bless. your
soul, they will not be dismissed. No

mothers and children over here and put
them out on these farms? The children

HKARTWELL, Neb., March T.-To the
Editor of The Bee: As to who started
the great war has been a vexing subject.
For the sake of being- neighborly many
of our best cMiiens have held aloof and
refrained from discussing It. Their re
ward haa been to receive only more of
insult. There are many of German birth
that are good Americans, but also many
are not. Thoae who praise the German
government, German prosperity and Ger
man efficiency are the very ones that
scoff at American ways and usages, and
would have the United States adopt a
course that compared with German meth
ods would be Inefficient.
Germany started the great war of this
the world haa never been In doubt. Its
forty-four years cf construction. Its sud
den ultimatum and manner of procedure
at the outset of hostilities left nothing
for a guess. England was prepared to
master the seas and hold what was hers,
but It haa been asserted that England
and France ere thla would have been sub
dued on French soil If no munitions had
reached them from abtoad. It so. It waa
an easy game for Germany after many
years of premeditation, careful and elab
orate preparation, if contrary to all past
usages, a traffic in which It had Indulged
could be stopped at a time when It would
overbalance the scales In Its favor.
The next ten years may bring little of
rlory to this country, even If the entente
allies win, but we don't want to see Eu
rope turned Into a despotism to tarnish
the rest of the earth. Germany's and
Austria's acts of torpedoing ships with
out warning and search made It Impera
tive for ships to arm. The right. If al
lowed, to torpedo urmed merchantmen
without warning gives them every fid
vantage of a doubt, and to make sure
that nothing escapes, torpedo any ship
they desire and leave It to Ita fate; thus
every vessel that crosses the sea la
placed In Jeopardy. This will bring all
merchant vessels to arming. Germany's
declaration of a new submarine policy la
tn Inner substance a challenge to the
world. Maybe the Teutons would like to
have America enter the fray to make
surrender appear better and lay the
blame for defeat on the western hemis
phere. It may not be necessary to de
clare war that would take our navy and
soldiers Into European battle line, but
we should protect our citizens and cqm
merce on the seas, which might r dono
by sending crutserj. destroyers and motor
boata to accompany ships and protect
them from attack by submarines.
