While local democratic newspapers, under or
ders to acclaim everything from Washington
that bean the official democratic atamp, are ting
ing the praises of the administration revenue
measure, especially for the reason that it hits
chiefly inherited wealth and people of large in
comes, the New York World, which it the presi
dent's most valiant champion in the east, is vio
lently assailing the bill as undemocratic and as
class legislation in its deliberate design to exempt
the vast majority of the people from bearing any
share in thit burden of government "If thit
measure aims to raise additional funds for na
tional defense," the World insists, "the contention
as to income taxes that they apply only to the
rich, because those of small meant already con
tribute indirect taxation, does not apply to thit
case," For various reasons carefully set out
when it Comes to national defense, in the opinion
of The World, the man of small income is, or
ought to be, at keenly interested as his more
opulant neighbor and every single man having an
income in excess of $1,000 and every head of a
family having an income in excess of $1,500
"should be glad to contribute according to his
means to the fund which is to safeguard the re
public against aggression from whatever quarter
it may appear. That is 'democracy" and with
out democracy a democratic party is useless."
The trouble it that the democracy of the New
York World and the democracy of the Wilton
claquert do not hit the tame key. The bill, how
ever, it not yet through the tenate and it will
be interesting to observe whether it emerges
with its "democracy" unchanged.
Battle of Wonderful Results.
The fight between the British and German
naviet off Jutland will go into naval annalt at
important for teveral reasons, but is not at all
likely to be given full credit for alt it accom
plished. It is one of the very few great fights in
all history in which both sides won a clean vic
tory. Besides this, it has confirmed Admiral
Dewey's .theory of the supremacy of the dread
naught and justifies Admiral Knight's contention
that the battle cruiser is indispensable. Advocates
of the submarine find support for their cltimt in
thit engagement, and the championt of the tor
pedo boatt are fully tuttained by what happened.
Plain people will be content to let the expert!
have it out in their own way, feeling at did old
Katpar, after Blenheim, that it waa "a great vic
tory." . .
V " Transporting the Troopt.
The railroads of the country meet criticitm
of the service given in the recent troop movement
with the excuse that they provided trains as or
dered by the War department, and furnished
equipment as requested. The movement, the
roads lay, wat made on a war basis, specifica
tions for which require tourist sleeper! or day
coaches for the men and itandard aleeperi for
the officer!. In all the United Statet only 500
touritt sleepers exist, and these were to widely
scattered it wat impracticable to assemble them,
contequently the men had to ride in day coachet.
Furthermore, the railroads have a letter from the
War department, expressing the tatitfaction of
the tecretary of war at the manner in which the
movement wat handled.
Oh, very welll But three weeks' time wat re
quired to collect 100,000 men on the border, while
thoutanda yet wait in ttate mobilization campt,
held for equipment which it not available, while
the men on the border are not yet fully equipped,
thoutandt of them wearing winter uniforms un
der the blazing tun of Texat. What would have
happened if the country had faced a real criais?
All the way along the line the movement of these
soldiers hat been marked by exposure of in
competence somewhere. Letters from the tecre
tary o( war expressing gratification for the rail
roads' thare In the work will not hide the fact
that the mobilization wat delayed, and that under
war cohditioni thit delay would have been fatal.
The unreadinett of the United Statet for wtr
hat been exhibited with startling clarity, but it
it not too late to apply the lesson. The problem
of co-ordinating the railroads at a part of a gen
eral plan for national defente it only one of tev
eral thlngt that mutt be worked out on a better
Filipinos Turn s Financial Deal.
'The government of the Philippines hat just
contummated a deal that recalls the campaign of
twenty yeart ago, when silver waa an issue, and
we heard to much about the government's profits
on "seignorage." It has disposed of a consider
able part of itt hoarded tilver coinage to Great
Britain for use in India, at a profit of half a mil
lion dollars. This silver waa purchased at a low
price, coined and stored in the treasury vaults
against currency issues. Under the tutelage of
the United States, gold is being substituted as the
basil for Filipino money, and a large part of the
silver held in reserve it thut made of little service.
Under thit plan the Philippine government finds
itself In a most advantageous position when deal
ing with itt nearett neighbor!, mott of which are
still on a tilver basis, and therefore compelled to
pay now a much higher price for the metal needed
for coinage, itt value being fixed by gold, the in
exorable working of the Gresham law. The pres
ent instance it interesting at showing from what
the United Statet was preserved by the republican
party, when it made the fair, square fight to put
our national monetary system on a sound and
tcientific basis. Had the "sacred ratio" prevailed
in 1896, the United States today might be buying
the debased coins of other countries at an en
hanced price to supplement itt supply of money.
' The efforts of the publicity end of the Wilton
administration to work a pulmotor on the Balti

slipped back one point compared with 1914 prices.
How -these "tlackert" lost their grip is not ex

Money and Irrigation.
North Platte, Neb., July IS. To tha Edi
tor of The Bee: W. H. Campbell, a Ne
braska and hiller, complaint of high rates
of interest to eandhillera. Tha late demo
crat federal reserve banking law allows any
member of its system to offer any kind of
their short-time obligations to itt board of
cven directors: the directors can approve
them. There are J500,000,00ft "ahinplasters"
lying In the United States treasury to dis
count them. No matter how worthless such
obligations may be, in this way they can
be floated and the financial graft of the sys
tem maintained but in no way can a farmer
borrow a dollar out of this system.
Now comes s rural credit system by the
same authority, which, according to W. H.
Campbell's figures, allows a sandhill farmer
to borrow $2,000 on his sandhills, Interest 7
per cent, abstract 116, flnt semi-annual In
terest In advance, 170; $860 commission
taken out of the loan, borrower receiving
$1,666, tha $2,0 Oft still drawing Interest
one-fourth of which the sandhill farmer
never get his hands on. We do not make
this statement to the derogation of any hon
est democrat, but we would call attention to
the fact that democracy is a principle not
merely a political party; that all moneys
and bills of oredit are based primarily upon
farm products and that when a farmer bor
rows money or credits from the federal re
serve system, lie is simply borrowing hit
own wealth from the grafters that have first
"buncoed" him out of it,
I. A. Fort of North Platte, wrote the first
letter published in The Bee in favor of sec
tion homesteads In the sandhill country of
Nebraska. Congressman Neville offered a
bill for a two-section homestead. Later
someone from Iowa offered a bill for one
section : these were turned down. Still later
a bill for a one-section homestead became
known as the Kincaid bill, and became a
law. L A. Fort of North Platte also called
the first irrigation convention, held at Grand
Island in 1897. I. A. Fort was a private in
the union army during the civil war. You
tandhillers and Irrigators don't yon forget
who your benefactors were!
The two paramount questions in the west
ern half of these United States are money
and Irrigation. Notwithstanding Wilson'
declaration that there is "no money trust,"
a common wood-chopper knows that the
present federal reserve system is the big
gest money trust ever organised on this
earth. That it not only controls the com
merce and industry of this country and
Europe by financing its war supplies, but
its recent boast is that U can now control
the commerce of South America.
How much longer will the sandhill farmers
of Nebraska continue to vote for a system
that has already robbed them to a finish
and Is now offering them a rural credit sys
tem that will make them and their children
serfs for life. Let the people take this
finance into their own hands and save the
margins. , LUCIEN STEBBINS.
THE MERCHANT MARINE.
' Cleveland Plain Dealer: The arrival of
the submarine Deutschland in Chesapeake
bay must be regarded as an epoch making
achievement. It proves that the submarine
Is far more practical than hitherto recog
nised. New York World: Except under the stress
of war, no experiment such as the Deutsch
land so brilliantly carried through would
be worth while. Little was it thought, as
the submarine waa developed, that it would
be converted to the uses of commerce. But
the Germane have demonstrated that it
can be made to serve as a carrier of freight,
in spite of the vigilance of hostile fleets.
Chleago Tribune: The Inspiring feat of
tha submarine Deutschland adds another
credit to the account of German resource
fulness and courageous enterprise. It la
evident that German practical genius has
gone a long way in the solution of tha
problems of submarine navigation, and we
hope the adventure of the Deutschland will
stimulate America to greater effort In this

merged. With a speed of eighteen to twenty
knots on the surface, she was able to duck
under the waves in less than two minutes
and continue her voyage submerged at
Philadelphia Record: As a feat of sea
manship the arrival of a German submarine
vessel at Newport News must be considered
as adding another to those remarkable ex
ploits, such as the long career of the Emb
den aa a commerce destroyer, the capture
of the Appam and her passage of the Atlan
tic to thia country, the successful warlike
cruises of converted merchantmen, etc.,
which have already given great prestige to
the kaiser'a sea fighters.
St Louis Globe Democrat: It is not cer
tain, however, that this means a maritime
revolution. One invention always ealls for
another. Every impenetrable armament, for
example, has stimulated the invention of ir
resistible projectiles The entente allies, by
methods we may only surmise, managed to
cope with the war submarines while trans
porting troops across the channel. Some
device may soon be found to make the
use of the new merchant submarine Im
practicable. But the exploit of the Deutsch
land Is, nevertheless, one of the most thrill
ing in the annals of the sea.

THE POWER OF BEAUTY
James Herbert Moore.
Thou neednt not weave nor spin.
Nor bring the wheat sheaves in.
Nor, forth a-field at morn.
At eve bring home the corn,
Nor on a winter'a night
Make blaze the fagots bright.
So lithe and delicate
So splendid ta they state,
So pale and pure thy face.
So deer-like In their grace
Thy limbs, that all do vie
To take and charm the eye.
Thus, tolling where thou'rt not
Is but ihe common lot:
Throe men mayhap alone
By strrnfrth may move a stone;
But, toiling rear to thee.
One man may work a three.
If thou but bend a' smtle
To fall on him the while.
Or, If one' tender slance,
Though coy and shct aekance,
His eye dtscoer, then
One man may work as ten.
Men commonly but ask,
"When shall I end my task?"
But seeing thee come m,
'T it, "When may I begin?"
Such power doth beauty bring
To take from toll Itt sting.
If then thou'lt do but this
Fling o'er the work a bliss
From thy mere presence non
Shall think thou'at nothing done;
Thou needtt not weave nor spin, ,
Nor bring the wheat iheavea In-
