Problem of the Submarine Merchantman.
The Entente Allies are making formal protest
against recognition by this government of the
submersible merchantman. This natural move
ment is taking for its basis a purely technicalrob
jection, and one that lacks the support of logic.
It is argued that a submarine is potentially, if not
essentially, a warship; therefore all submersible
vessels muit be excluded from immunity as mer
chantmen. To carry this out to its reasonable
conclusion, all vessels are potential warships,
therefore none are entitled to be listed as innocent
craft. Furthermore, the United States very recently'
determined a dispute in favor of the right of mer
chantmen to carry arms for defense against at
tack. This principle is capable of easy extension
to the submarine, giving it the right to dive to
elude pursuit. As to the right of a vessel to
change its character at tea, a difference of opin
ion exists that is not essy to settle. Germany
claims that right, and exercised it at the beginning
of the war, changing a number of passenger boats
into commerce-destroyers. Other great powers,
including the United States, object to the practice.
The Deutschland came peacefully on a peace
ful mission, and is said to be but the first of a
considerable fleet to engage in overseas traffic.
It is a new note in warfare, for it does, to quote
Captain Koenig, "unlock the seas." A blockade
can scarcely be maintained so long as these ves
sels are in service. Therefore, the British are
especially concerned in the protest lodged.
A more interesting feature will be the cargo
to be carried hack to Germany. The United
States has specifically engaged not to re-export
rubber sent lis from British possessions. Private
firms have similarly agreed not to export nickel
brought in from Canada. Germany particularly
wants nickel and rubber. If the Deutichland is
loaded with these staples, the supply of the United
States will be cut off. The greater part of our
nickel comes from Canada, and more than 60 per
cent of the world's rubber supply is provided
by the British plantations around Singapore.

Hot Weather in th City Council
It is too bad that business affairs of the city
must be made to suffer because of the climatic
conditions now prevailing. Omaha is not respon
sible for the vagarious conduct of the weather
man and it' bad enough to have, to put up with
the meteorological freak that hav been visited
on us lately. . Our trials an not to end with this,
however, for the democratic brethren of the city
commission have seized this as th proper mo
ment to stir up things among themselves. With
out regard to the merits ef the controversy in
any of it angle, dip or spurs. Th Bee sug
gest that perhaps Mr. Butler was right when he
made the statement that th city ought to take
advice of it corporaion counsel, or get one who
can be' trusted. And we feel positive that Mr.
Butler wa right in asking that th appropriation
of $70,000 for additional motor equipment for
fire department uses be held over for a little
while. Omaha is not suffering because of short
age in fire fighting apparatus, although it yet has
in service a few horse-drawn hose cart and hook
and ladder truck. A to the "welcome" arch,
two opinions no longer exist, the mayor to the
contrary notwithstanding. It wa a mistake in
the beginning, and ha degenerated into a joke,
a disfigurement, and threaten! to become a nui-
ance. If the weather were a little lei like the
sort Kaniai City revel in, Th Bee would urge
Messrs. Dahlman and Butler to keep it up, not
only for the good of their souls, but to the end
that the people might get interested and some
real reforms be accomplished.
Thrift, Insurane and Pensions. '
Some impressive, if not actually startling,
statements have been made lately, under condi
tions that bring them to the thoughtful with
more Than normal conviction. The Carnegie
foundation, in announcing a new plan for a com
bination of insurance with Its teacher's pension,
touches one of the regrettable characteristic of
the American nation. A professor, the founda
tion report itatei, will cling to place that pays
him $1,200 rather than change to one of $1,500
salary because the smaller paid position carriea
with it the promise of a pension at the end of
thirty years' service. He does not realize that
the difference in salary will pay for a support
much greater than the pension provides. It is
also set out that the increase in pay does not lead
to a continuation of the thrift that would make
the desired condition possible..
At the meeting of the National Educational
association in New York a speaker itated that
"thirty-five out of every 100 widow find them
selves in absolute want and only eighteen find
themselves in circumstances that could be called
comfortable." How accurate these figure are
cannot be said, but if thev are only approxi
mately correct, they constitute a terrible indict
meut of Americans as I people. It Is a result of
carelessness, inexcusable because to many ways
of avoiding this state are open to the husbands,
Compulsory insurance is drastic, but it has its
advocates, and it may be questioned if the state,
which can compel a man to look after his family
while living, may not also compel him to make
some provision for the care of wife and children
after his death.
The Carnegie foundation plan amounts to
term insurance for prospective beneficiaries of
the pension, the cost to be met by contributions
from the insured and from the institutions where
they are engaged. This may be a step leading to
state insurance, but it his the attraction of point'
ing a way that will render widowhood less deso
Conservation in the Concrete.
A veterinarian from Missouri, speaking to the
convention in session, here, says that if Ne'
braska had had a county veterinarian in every
county last year he could have saved swine
growers $900,000. Whether the doctor's figures
are accurate or not, his statement is significant of
the economic waste ever present under our ex
isting system, or rather lack of system, and
against which w make little or no effort Con
servation, expressed In simple terms, means to
safeguard against not only loss by reason of swine
plague, but from any preventable source. Gath
erings of learned men are continually preaching
to us, of the need of better ways, but we are very
slow to adopt them. It I not because we lack
intelligence, but for some reason, difficult td de
fine, we do' not heed lessons io plain as that
taught th farmer in his experience with disease
among his animals. Unwillingneii to adopt bet
ter ways of doing things ought not to subject as
to the tremendous economic loss involved, but

Omaha. July 11. To tht Editor of Tha
Baa i Parhaoi a ttlaiB lUttmmt of the
facts miy be in order in connection with
the recent action of tht city council frant
fni to the Omaha and Council Bluff Street
Railway company a permit to construct
street ear tracks on North Twenty-iourin
street alone; the east side of Miller park
and through the Minnelusa addition. The
buildinr of this extension will not in any
manner Increase the earnings of the street
railway company. Like all new extensions
hich have been mada by this company
during tha last ten years, this will cost a
lane sum and will add to the expense of
operation, but will produce no additional in
come. From a selfish standpoint the street
railway company would be much better off
if they did not make this or other exten
sions of their lines. The company gets the
business now, and the benefit in new exten
sions accrues entirely to the property own
ers along the way. They add value to the
real estate and bring transportation facilities
to the doors of those who now are obliged
to walk several blocks.
The people living in the north end of
the city petitioned to have the North Twenty-fourth
street line extended. The street
railway company, recognising its obligation
to the city, and regardless of its financial
Interests, decided to build the extension and
asked for a permit to open the street in the
same manner as other permits have been
requested for extensions that have been built
for the last twenty years or more, but the
city attorney came forward with the sug
gestion that in granting this partielar permit
the street railway company should ba obliged
to practically admit and acknowledge by ac
cepting It that they had no franchise rights
on the streets of the city of Omaha. The
first preamble of the resolution drawn by
him reads as follows; "Whereas there Is
some question as to the extent of the right
of the Omaha and Council Bluffs Street
Railway company to occupy the streets of
the city or to extend Its road for that pur
Tha attorney for the street railway com
pany advined the officers not to accept this
permit. The matter became involved In legal
discussions, and those desiring the exten
sion were about to lose It, on account of
these hir-splitting technicalities. The street
railway attorney ana us geneiai manager
were instructed to accept any solution of tha
matter that would not waive or imperil any
of the present rights of the street railway
company, at the same time to ask nothing
from the city that would In any manner
affect Its rights regarding the street railway
eompany s franchises. The solution was final
ly reached by the resolution passed by the
elty council on July 6, in which. If any fair
minded man will read carefully, he cannot
help but see that the rights of the city have
been In every manner fully protected. This
resolution reads as follows:
"Whereas. Omaha and Council Bluffs
Street Railway company has rqueated a
permit to extend Its double track of said
railway from their presnnt terminus on North
Twenty.rourth atreM from Kansas avenue
to Ida street, therefore,
Be xt Resolved by tha City Council of tha
City of Omaha:
That satd permit be granted eubjeet to
the condition that the granting of aid per
mit shall be without prejudice to the rights of
or worn as an estoppel against tne city or
Omaha to hereafter question the franchise
of the Omaha and Council Bluffs Street
Railway company to extend or operate Its
street railway Unas upon that part of the
Street named In said permit."
The Insinuation of some of the agitators
who have been stirring up thia subject that
tha street railway eompany has sought or is
In any manner seeking to fortify Its rights
or take any undue advantage of tha city
by tha building ef this extension, it ao pre
posterous and falsa that It needs no com
ment. The officers of tha street railway eompany
have tried In avery way to be patient during
tha almost continual attacks by irrespon
sible agitators for years past. Recently these
attacks have been .tha cause of great finan
cial loss to tha eompany, for the reason that
they have stepped the sale of street railway
securities and have materially impaired tha
credit of the company. While thara is not
the least foundation for tha statement that
the eity is about to take away from tha
eompany a large part of Its property, yet
this statement, given credence by news
papers and official acts, has been sufficient
to alarm security holders to eueh an extant
that the stocks and bonds of tha company
have depreciated In value several hundred
thousand dollars during the last six months.
No good and much harm can be accomplished
by tha continual agitation of this subject
Tha agitators cannot construct a slngla foot
of street ear tracks In this eity ; they may
ba able to prevent the street ear eompany
from constructing any tracks for many years
to come. O. W. WATTLES.
