New Government for Ireland.
Premier Asquith is reported to have said that
the present form of government for Ireland has
had its day, and that he will devote himself to
devise a newer method for administering the af
fairs of the island. This presages a reformation
in Irish government that ought to be for the bet
ter. Asquith is known to sympathize keenly with
the people of Ireland in their'aspirations f6r con
trol of their local affairs and has hitherto given
support to measures intended to ameliorate their
condition. The problem of government there is
perplexing in the extreme, because of bitter local
antagonisms. A home rule bill, all but passed
through Parliament, has the determined opposi
tion of a large element, who go even, to the length
of armed rebellion against the purpose of the im
perial government in resentment. This is but
one of the difficulties that must be reconciled be
fore entire harmony can be" established in Ireland.
Americans are unable to fully appreciate the
sentiments of the Irish on either side. Extreme
devotion to traditions and apparently irreconcil
able division on issues that have lost their reality
in all the world elsewhere, fail to appeal to the
world outside, but it is a trait of the Irish charac
ter which must be reckoned with. Idealism has
a much stronger hold on the people of the Km
erald Isle than realism, and they are poetic rather
than practical. Ireland in a material way is more
prosperous today than ever, and a new form of
government may bring a better feeling to its
people, and perhaps do something to heal a
breach that has gaped for centuries,
Asquith's further announcement of his plans
will be awaited with interest, because of the
keen sympathy Americans have for the Irish in
their home problems.
If Bryan's FigTirei Are Correct.
As an aftermath of our recent primary, Will
iam J. Bryan is indulging a bent for political
mathematics for the evident purpose of making a
favorable showing for the "dry" amendment. He
computes the "wet" majority on the democratic
side, to be 1.1,640, arrived at by subtracting from
the vote polled for Neville that polled by
"Brother Charlie" to defeat whom, he says,
"many 'wet' republicans voted in the democratic
If Mr. Bryan has here the explanation of his
brother's defeat, then at least 1.1,000 republicans
must have crossed over into the democratic side,
whereas no one knows of any appreciable number
of democrats voting in the republican primary.
The total vote in that primary is officially re
corded as 86,880 for the democrats, against 102,
755 for the republicans. Transferring 1.1,000 from
the democratic column back to the republican
column would make the latter 115,000 and reduce
the other to 73,000, measuring the disparity be
tween the two parties at 42,000. If Nebraska re
publicans really have lead of more than 40,000
over the democrats, it is all over but the shouting,
provided only the republican elements are firmly
united behind a satisfactory presidential standard-bearer.
Disclaimer from Berlin.
The announcement ' from Washington that
Germany has finally put in a disclaimer of the
unlawful acts of German subjects or German
sympathizers in the United States, affecting
American neutrality, is worthy of attention, as
indicating that the imperial government is not
unmindful of matters that might lead to compli
cations. Ambassador Bernstorff, through the
State department, is addressing subjects of the
kaiser domiciled in the United States, warning
them to refrain from any illegal conduct, and to
observe closely the laws of the country in all
their actions. This can scarcely affect the sym
pathizers with Germany who are not subjects of
the emperor, but it does put the onus of their
conduct on them. Germany's foreign office is
beginning to show something of the quality of
astuteness for which it was given credit prior to
the war, but which has been obscured in a con
siderable degree since the beginning of hostilities.
An Old Story Retold.
The Decatur bank failure has no clement
of novelty in it. It has been repeated many
times, world without end. Get-rich-quick
schemes usually are founded on air, and almost
invariably come to the same end. The business
of banking has a stable foundation, and it must
be managed along fundamentally sound lines
in order to endure. The man who undertakes
to accomplish wonders juggling with money be
longing to others sooner or later will lose his
balance or miss his grip, and then comes the
For Nebraskans the experience carries some
thing of a warning. When the bank guaranty
act was under discussion, this very contingency
was pointed' out, and the necessity of making
provision against it was strongly urged. Then
as now personal probity, business experience and
unremitting industry were the requisites for suc
cess in banking as in any line of commercial en
deavor. The guaranty law undertook to add t
these the additional safeguard of making all the
bankers sponsors for the integrity of each other.
That it hat Uiled to create honesty it not cause
Secretary Royse of the Mate Banking board
recently tounded a warning to the banker and
the public ahke against condition jmiMble un

WILL you have your appendicitis operation
done in pink, or nilc green, this year? rink
would be a more cheerful tone, encouraging
optimism, but green induces tranquility, and
doubtless has a sufficiently Lethean quality,
when dominating walls and ceiling of the operat
ing room, to enable you to forget the bill that
awaits your recovery. The point is that physi
cians and surgeons arc beginning to believe the
psychologists, who say that color affects our
moods, and also that our moods determine to
some extent the success or failure of medical
and surgical experiments with our interior econ
omy. This The Medical Review explains more
fully as follows:
"A saffron tie makes us languorous, while a
purple one inspires us to noble deeds. Green
produces a state of tranquility, while blue de
presses us. And so on. But now the chro
matic scheme of things entire has invaded the
operating room, that hitherto domain of the
strictly practical. Last September Dr. Berkeley
Moynihan wrote to The Lancet stating that
for two and a half years he had been using green
sheets and towels instead of white ones in the
operating room, as they were more restful to
the eye; he had also painted his walls green
and covered the floor with green material. This
suggestion was copied by some American jour
nals. "In the next number of The Lancet Dr. Mil
ligan expressed himself as being in favor of such
a scheme, but Dr. Whiteford is much mure en
thusiastic. His operating room he has done
tastefully in light French blue, the surgeons are
dressed in white, the nurses in blue, and the on
lookers in red. In the next issue a Dr. Jeans
slates that he is doing his operating rooms in
blue this year. And so the chromatic chirur
gron contribute their impressionistic ideas of
operating rooms. In time, let us hope, we have
the perfect polychromatous physician; he will
bewilder us with some such display as this: T he
anesthetic room will be in rainbow colors, signi
fying hope, the operating room will be in red,
meaning danger, the new assistant will be green,
the patient's relatives will look blue, and the
future will appear black. Seriously, however,
it is time that some such restful shade to the
eyes as light green should supplant the glaring
white of many hospitals, the dazzling operating
room, the cheerless corridors and the monoton
ous patients' rooms.
Omaha and the Students
, Lincoln iter.
It must prove a good thing for all concerned
to have 750 university students visit Omaha in a
body, as it is proposed that they shall do F'riday.
It will be good for the students and good for
Omaha. That many students have expressed a
desire to go, and it is a cinch that Omaha wantj
them to visit the metropolis.
Unfortunately the students who live in other
portions of the state seldom hear anything good
of Omaha, just as they seldom hear much that is
gratifying to their vanity in regard to themselves.
Both have been scolded and maligned a great deal
during the last few years. From much that is
said concerning them by a portion of the Lincoln
press Omaha must have reached the conclusion
that rough-neckism is regarded among the young
men of the big Nebraska institution as a scholarly
attainment, although those of us who are permit
ted to mingle with them know that there is noth
ing to it. On the other(hand, much that the stu
dents read concerning Omaha must awaken a
fear that it is unsafe for a decorous person to
visit that city and that contamination lies in wait
for the unwary there.
Contact between Omaha and the students,
then, must prove beneficial to both. Omaha will
do handsomely by the students in showing them
a good time. It is a city worth seeing. livery
Nebraskan should know it and comprehend in
greatness. On the other hand Omaha will find
the university bunch a clean and capable crowd
of enthusiasts, however noisy they may be.
It has sometimes seemed as if there were po
tentialities in Omaha who were not over-friendly
toward the university. It has been from that di
rection that opposition has often come to fulfilling
the financial needs of this big and growing insti
tution. Perhaps these getting together of Omaha
and representatives of the student body may
quicken Omaha interest in the university and
deter the wealthy Omahan from sending his
sons and daughters to distant schools for equip
ment. The 750 student excursion might well be
swelled to twice the number, for Omaha prom
ises a treat for them and will make that prom

Prefees fltats to National Bank.
St. Kdwurd. Neb., May 18. To the Kdl
tor of The Bee: I note that you have made
sperlsl mention of the failure of the De
catur State bank. It it surely right for you
to give this prominent publicity, for ths
pilfering of a bank Is one of ths very worst
klndH of dealing thst ever happied.
There is no quettlon but thst every cent
of wn In this rses will tie made good by
the atato guaranty law, and the thought
came to me as to why you gave such little,
notice to thw of Sutton and Superior.
A large num-r of our people sr like

eye teeth are out yet or not, but anyhow t
waa one of the unfortunates who fell In the
It was my misfortune to ahlp a ar of
corn to a customer at Huperlor, drawing
through our hank for ths proceeda and
Ihry In turn through the Superior bank. It

out and collected the draft, and as they
needed the money they kept It, and our
comptroller of the currency haa decided that
aa they kept the money, It mads ut simply
I at once anught after light, and to my
complete aurprlae found that of sll the
fakes ever pulled on sn unauapecting pub
lic none waa ever greater than the word
"national" In the name of the numeroua
I have often In my Innocence gated on
thru heautlful gilt bank algna with ths
"national" In them, snd a fueling of con
fidence and pride would come over me when
I thought how splendid It waa to have In
stitutions backed up by our national govern
ment, snd I can now rcallcs how Mark
Twain fell when hs went to rsleatlne to
es soma of ths hiimhea of grapes Ills
mother uaed to tell him shout thst ths
aplea got In the promlaed land.
Your correspondent aays ths stockholders
srs worrying, sa they sra liable for twice
their capital stock. I would suggest to thsm
that they advlas with the Superior bank
stockholders, for I don't think they are
worrying much. This double liability Is just
another one of tbs jokers these Institutions
pull off, for It Is written you must first
catch your rabbit, Then after you And out
who owns the cspltal stock you can start

turned thalr property over to their wife,
you may be sble to collect your judgment,

fteopa of Standard Pries BUI.
Omaha, May ). To ths Editor of Ths
Bee; In newspapers lately I have noticed
a common miaapprehenalon that the
Kt-phcna' standard price bill will apply
to all merchandise. Ths truth Is only a
small psrt of a retailer's slock will bs sf
fected, as Ihs legislation covers only stan
dard Irsde-marked goods.
Another mlatsken conception Is thst such
a system of merchsndlalng would be Im
practical for perlshsbls goods. Supporters
of this notion forget the bill Is permissive
snd not mandatory, No producer need
coma under Its provisions unleaa hs dealrea
to do so. Undoubtedly much confusion of
thought Is caused by failure to bear In mind
sll ths Urns thst ths bill Is only expected to
specifically cover standard articles of na
tional reputation uaed as "bait" to demor
alise trade such srtlcles as a rule have a
stesdy volume of sale.

A fur-sory View of Frsparednees.
Omaha, May IT. To ths Editor of Th
Bee: I observe thst ths pad flats ar still
writing to you snout the besutlss of trust
ing In ths brotherhood of sll men and being
unprepared. Do not baileys them. I tried
pacifism for two years and It was a great
disappointment to ms. Thst wss when I
wss a young dog and had not been disil
lusioned. I went about wagging my fool
ish tall, trusting In ths brotherhood of
dnga snd ths protection of a simple heart.
The result wsa that I was aaaaulted every
time I left my own yard, and In all the
neighborhood was no dog so lowly thst he
might saplrs to sample the quality of my
upholstery. Even thst ugly little Ispdog
across ths street who looks like a cream
puff ran yspplng st my heels, trying to bits
with what had been supplied him aa a sub
stltuts for tsathl
Sines thoss unhsppy tfsys I have given op
being a pacifist and bavs learned to fight.
I am prepared, and they all know It by ths
way I walk on my toes snd sniff the atr.
No longer do they coma boldly Into my yard
to steal my best bones hidden under ths
lllso bush, and If I wlah to go for a quiet
walk I may now do so without running ths
risk of being sssaaalnated by ths flrat bold
eoyots that cornea along hunting for his
plsce In the sun.
If the pacifists In these parts wish to
msks a practical test of their theories I
should advise them to abollah the police
fores snd put their trust In ths brotherhood
snd kindly feelings of ths locsl fraternities
of criminals snd rough-necks. If they do
not believe In prepsredneaa why do they not
discharge the night watchman and taks
the locks off their doors t
Thee sra my views the opinions of a
hound-dog who has been through the mill
snd hsd experiences.
