Thirty Years Ago
This Day in Omaha
One of Omaha' Real Aiteti.
Omaha is getting some advertising these days
of a kind most gratefully appreciated by those
who have become acquainted with the source
and the method.
The New York milk committee, for example,
an organiiation of philanthropic workers keeping
close watch over the infant mortality of the
country, in a recent report states that Omaha
is the best city in the country for a baby, giving
him a far better chance to live than any other.
The bady's chance of living to be 1 year old is
four times better in Omaha than in many other
of the cities of the country. One of the Rocke
feller Foundation investigators, after visiting
Omaha and inspecting some of its institutions,
likewise praises them highly for efficiency and
This is publicity that is valuable, coming
from authoritative sources, and therefore having
great weight. Not all of Omaha's own people
know the facts these reports set forth, bait they
are only a part of the reasons Omaha has for
holding up its head among the cities of the
Clocks and the War Game.
Great Britain will set the "clock ahead,"
which means that for the time at least noon will
come at 1 o'clock instead of M. Just what is
to be gained, aside from the fooling of people
into thinking they are gaining on time, doesn't
appear. The earth will still rotate on its axis
without preemptible difference in its speed, the
sun will rise in the east and set in the west just
as it has "since first the flight of years began,"
and nothing in nature will respond to the new
rule of recording time. If our Fnglish friends
are in the notion of overtaking their German ad
versaries in the matter of warlike efficiency, we
would suggest that (be clock be abandoned alto
gether, that no limit be put upon the activity of
the people, save such as nature fixes, and that
arrangement speedily be made for carrying on
the campaign as a continuous undertaking.
Clocks have only one possible function in war,
and that is to secure synchronous action of commanders.
Lake Mohonk Peace Platform.
The Ijike Mohonk peace conference has
adopted a platform which broadly endorses The
Hague conference and asks for a continuation of
its work. It is a prudent expression of conserva
tive belief that the court established at The
Hague la of service, and that its decisions have
heen helpful as between the nations. Views of
advocates of methods for compelling peace find
no place in the platform, although the extremists
were given full hearing at the sessions. In this
regard the conference is following a precedent
long ago laid down, that of accepting human ex
perience as a safe guide, rather than human aspi
rations. In effert the document recognizes that war is
not speedily to disappear, but will remain a con
trolling factor in human affairs, as it has been for
many generations, It is possible to live without
war, but efforts to bring about that end, and to
substitute peaceable adjustment of international
affairs must undergo the slow process of hu
The platform also suggests extension of the
jurisdiction of the supreme court of the United
States to cover cases involving treaty rights of
aliens. Theoretically, this is desirable, but prac
tically it is open to objection. It would place
too much work on an already heavily taxed
court. If the existing machinery of law and jus
tice is insufficient, a special tribunal might be set
up, with clearly defined jurisdiction, and the right
of review be reserved to the supreme court. Such
a tribunal could with becoming celerity handle
matters that now become exasperating because of
vexatious delays, 'and thus avoid much cause for
The Lake Mohonk conference has helped
greatly this time by keeping close to shore.

ForeigTi Trade and the Merchant Marine.
Secretary of the Treasury McAdoo is home
from his trip to Buenos Ayres and other South
American centers, and brings with him word
that the South American countries are eager for
closer trade relations with the L'nited States. In
this he is but repeating the experience of pre
decessors in the enterprise. Mr. McAdoo re
ports that the greatest need jtiixt novi is a fleet
of merchant ves.ael under the American flag to
tarry the product that are to be interchanged
between the two countries. He also renews the
New York to Buenos Ayres railroad project.
The cold facts are that the Tinted States
has not had the trade of South America be
cause Germany, Kugland and France have gone
about getting it on a more eflcttivc baxis than
ue have adopted. The gt eat t-onstrmtioii en

As to Hughes' Views
" Ilaa Moinn Rglatr.
IT IS NOT due to any natural reticence or
lack of opinions on the part of Justice
Charles E. Hughes, but to his position on the
supreme court, that everyone is today repeating
without credit the words applied to him in 3908
by Hamilton Holt, managing editor of the In
dependent. In that year Mr. .Holt wrote of
Hughe in the following word?, equally appli
cable in the year 1916;
"All over the country people are watching
his career with eagerness and hope, and many
of them have come to the conclusion that he is
worthy of the presidency. But although there is
general confidence in his ability and honexty,
comparatively little is known of his Political
views, especially on national issues."
Justice Hughes has nevertheless expressed
himself time and again upon national issues, and
there is not a public question before the people
today upon which his addresses before he be
came justice of the supreme court do not throw
light at to his general attitude.
Hughes is a man of peace and he believes in
He believes in upholding the national honor
and he objects to the old definition of honor
which would force a war over every trivial issue
in international relations.
He believes great good may come of specific
wars and he denounces war in general in un
On January 31, 1908, Hughes declared that
our security rested upon devotion to peace backed
by adequate defense. T he following paragraph
covers practically the whole question of what he
believes on that score:
"We are devoted to the interests of peace
and we cherish no policy of aggression. The
rnainlenance of our ideals is our surest protec
tion, It is our constant aim to live in friendship
with all nations and to realize the aims of a free
government secure from the interruptions of
strife and the wastes of war. It Is entirely con
sistent with these aims, 'and it is our duty to
make adequate provision for our defense and to
maintain the efficiency of our army and navy.
And this I favor."
In the same address, delivered before the Re
publican club of the city of New York, he de
clared himself for a protective tariff based upon
"the difference In the cost of production here
and abroad," but not making thfs policy a cover
for exorbitant rates or for obtaining special privi
leges from the government which are not based
upon considerations of the general welfare,"
Justice Hughes believes in the hyphenated
citizen who has dropped his hyphen or made it
a sign of union, not of separation. At the dedi
cation of the Siegel monument tn 1907, lie said:
"This is our common country. Whatever the
abode of our ancestors, this is our home, and
will be the home of our children, and in our love
for pur institutions and In our desire to main
tain the standards of civic conduct which are
essential to their perpetuity, we recognize no
difference in race or creed we stand united, a
contented poople rejoicing in the privileges and
determined to meet the responsibilities of Ameri
In the same year, 1907, he said:
"The necessity of war as a last defense of
liberty and honor is admitted only to be de
precated, and in the desire to prevent armed
strife there is almost complete unanimity."
So far as his present sentiments can be
judged by past utterances, Justice Hughes stands
primarily for peace. He has said: "The time is
sure to come when war will be unthinkable."
There is nothing in hia record to give comfort to
the jingo or the militarist.
On the other band, Hughes does stand for
adequate national defense, for strength in the
army and Jiavy, for a national honor which he
says "has been upheld by the republican party,"
and it is evident that he ia not a peace at any
The Register has been at some pains to seek
the views of Justice Hughes upon matters now
before the nation, as they are to be found in
his various public addresses, and the record is
sufficiently complete to dispel a good deal of
the uncertainty about the silent candidate for
People and Events
