A Glittering Oppartunity
BraaUya Ba(b (Daa.). '
.That this country will play a new part and
that it will be a part of increased responsibilitiei,
the president has assured us. He has spoken of
the United States aa a land of equality and of
justice. : - ' ' ' '
What increased responsibilities signify is
lhown at Washington. There every day millions
ire added to the coit of government There at-
.ention is paid only to the multiplication table.
Soon we shall have a two billion dollar
:ountry. ' There is no longer talk of retrench
nent. Not a word now is heard of government
economically administered. That sort of talk
seems to have become obsolete.
Some of the increased responsibilities are
financial In a land of equality and of justice no
distinctions are drawn. The burdens to be borne
ire borne bv all. i
Congress has seen fit to draw distinctions. It
has seen fit to relieve some at the expense of
others. - In the matter of the income tax it has
teen fit to create a onvileied claia.
. There could be no better text for the president
; who is a lover of fair play and who cannot recon
:ile himself to inequality and injustice. He knows
what democracy means. ,
Also, what it does not It does not mean that
there shall be immunity for the many at the ex-
pen ie of the few. It does mean that all bene-
bcisries - snail pay in proportion to tneir means.
It is a glittering text None could excel the
president in hii treatment thereof. None could
more scornfully repudiate an effort to make him
t!'e benehciary ot injustice at the polls,
ia can set the echoes flying. . .
Reviving the Submarine Issue.
Threats heard in the Houie of Commons that
Great Britain expects to make a paramount issue
out of the Deutschland ordinarily would hsve no
weight, but existing circumstance! warrant giving
the address of Lord Robert Cecil some considera
tion. This is not the first time since the begin
ning of the war the British cabinet has sought to
influence the action of the United States on an
issue raised by the war. Controversy over inter
ference with neutral traffic is already sharp, and
the immediate matter of interference with mails
has been brought to the attention of King
George's ministry in plain terms. Should the
minister of war trade, or the foreign minister,
seize upon the incident of the sppearance in an
American harbor of a submersible merchant ves
sel as a pretext for threatening reprisals of any
sort they would show a capacity for blundering
even greater than has been credited to them.
His British majesty's cabinet should keep in
mind that it was the firm insistence of the United
States on observance of neutral rights and inter
national law that brought the modification in the
German submarine campaign. The advantage of
this to British commerce need not be specified.
The only possible effect of charges against the
United States in connection with the Deutschland
would be to alienate the moral support of a large
percentage of our people, whose sympathies hsve
been with the Entente Allies, but whose sense of
justice will not permit them to accept everything
proposed by the Britiih government.
Efforts to force this country into an unneutral
position are unworthy of the British. Lord Grey's
reply to the note on the mail question Is overdua,
and patience with his dilatory course will not be
improved by evasion or an attempt to revive the
More Proof of Unreadiness.
When the question of our national unreadiness
for defense was seriously broached as a topic for
public debate a year ago, much of consolation was
derived in secret way from the reflection that
the War department knew a thing or two it did
not make public. Some facts developed in con
nection with the recent mobilization of the Na
tional Guard has proven that this was true. It
has also shown the reasons for the silence of the
war office. It knew a lot of things it isn't proud
of, knowledge of which does not raise us in the
estimation of the world. When the Nebraska
soldiers were in camp at Lincoln, supplies sent
from the St Louis warehouse for their use were
rejected, because the blankets, shoes and stock
ings were of an inferior quality. Over in Iowa
complaint is made that second-hand uniforms
were issued, torn end buttontess trousers and the
like, being among the articles. - Now comes a re
port from Camp Dodge that plow shoes of all
the colors of the rainbow are being Issued to the
men under arms, in lieu of the regular army shoe.
It was not alone in the matter of guns and similar
arms we were short, but we can not supply cloth
ing for the hundred thousand men we have called
out. What would have happened if Mr. Bryan's
million had presented themselves for equipment?
It is high time our War department wn being
overhauled and placed on a serviceable Basis.

; Tariff Commission Not on the Square.
Are the democrats on the square with the tariff
commission proposal incorporated in their new
revenue bill? All their previous actions would
indicate that they were not If the democrats
sincerely favored a tariff commission- they need
not have legiststed out of existence the non
partisan tariff board started under the preceding
republican administration. If the old tariff board
did not suit them, the democrats could easily have
reconstructed it when they enacted their Under
wood tariff law. Yet, they not only did nothing
of the kind, but they continued to discountenance
and discredit the idea of tariff making by advice
of nonpartisan experts until now, when they sud
denly reverse in the belief that they can make
political capital by pretending to favor the tarift
That it is all mere pretense we now have the
proof in the booit given the new revenue measure
in Mr. Bryan's Commoner over his name:' "The
tariff commission," he says, "pleases a certain ele
ment and does no harm. Its tendency is to post
pone a change in rates and that is at present den-able."
Mr. Bryan here lets the cat out of the
bag for, if "it pleases a certain element and does
no harm," it Is intended to do no good. Its pur
pose is, as he confesses, merely to provide ail ex
cuse for delay and to fool the people into thinking
that they are to have scientific tariff revision from
the democrats. No fslrly informed person can
be convinced that a tariff that will build up
American industries in all parts of the country is
attainable through a political party wholly sec
tional in its control and interests as is the south
ridden democratic party. The only way to get
an effective tariff commission is by restoring the
republicans to power.
Worth While Publicity.
It is' the exceptional that attracts attention
and it is doing something out of the ordinary
that brings publicity. Witness this fragrant bou
quet thrown by Collier's Weekly at our little sis
ter city of Council Bluffs under the caption
"Sightliness and Safety:" t
The east talks with pride of its White Ways,
but at Council Bluffs, la., the lamp-posts per
form the added service of supporting flower
boxes filled with nodding blossoms. And mir
rors on the trolley cars enable the motormen
to see the car steps without having to turn.
When you've made city streets at once safer
and more beautiful, you've done more than to
fill 'em with taxicabi and freak fashions.

Nebraska and the I. W. W.
Nebraska is just now having Its first real ex
perience with the I. W. W, the outcome of which
is to be determined. Other western states have
been visited and more or less disturbed by this
band of migratory irresponsiblcs, whose inverted
system of social economy makes them a problem
as well as a nuisance. Ordinary treatment, such
aa confinement or repression, has little effect upon
them other than to invite further visitations. Be
cause of this, the remedy for them is not easy,
but our peace officers may be depended upon to
see that order is maintained and the law sup
ported. Men with a constitutional grudge against
all society, although not easily dealt with, must
not be permitted to overturn all that man has ac
complished. Nothing really serious has developed
in connection with the I. W. W. in Nebraska,
but the presence of these men itself is a menace,
and the authorities must be vigilant...

Publicity That Halpa.
Omaha, July II. To tha Editor of Tha
Baa: Tha Nebraska Humana aoetety wihei

tha Humana aoeiaty today U a Ian ar maana

Praparadaaaa aad Prohibition.
Omaha, July 18 To tha Editor of Tha
Baa: Latlia'a contain! an article by Cap
tain P. Lincoln Mitchell of the National
Security leaiue, "Where Shall We Get Our
Powder." which la hiahly interesting from
the standpoint of preparedneee. He ehowa
that for every two pounda of mokeleil
powder produced, one gallon of alcohol la
uaed. Many millions of tallons of alcohol
have thus been eonsumed In the manufacture
of smokeless powder exported to the allies.
Captain Mitchell points out that the dis
tilling industry In this country is, there
fore, of greatest possible importance, and
gorernment authorities hare already sent
out Inquiry blanks to distllleriea as to what
quantities they could furnish to the goTern
ment in an emergency. He also points out
that prohibition would practically destroy
the greater part of the distilling industry in
While there Is no donfct much truth in
tha views expressed by him. It goes without
saying that it will be denounced by the
ultra pacifists and the prohibitlonista alike.
But there are many uses for alcohol or
spirituous liquors entirely apart from that
which la sold for either beverage purposes
or for making smokeless powder. Take this
relatively small distillery for instance, pro
ducing at the rata of perhaps 160,000 wina
gallons per month, and selling less than one
tenth that quantity within the state of Ne
braska. Probably one-half of the total prod
net la used for other than beverage purposes,
marketed through wholesale druggists, sold
to hospitals and used by manufacturers of
flavoring extraeta, perfumeries, etc., etc.
Nevertheless this state votes in November
next on the Initiative proposition, "Shall the
manufacture and sale of liquors ha forever
prohibited in Nebraska."
If that constitutional amendment should
carry at the polls, It would mean that tha
Omaha distillery would have to dose ita
doors, and tha product It has sold hereto
fore, (nine-tenths of It In other states, one
tenth in Nebraska), would ba supplied from
distilleries in the east. As shown by the
experienea of practically every prohibition
state, tha quantity consumed within the
state would scarcely change, but would be
shipped in from other states, either through
legitimate channels or otherwise. (The At
lanta Constitution of June 80 records re
ceipts In that alty of 1S.82S legal shipments
of liquor during June, aa against 7.7S1 thip
menta In May.) In other words, the derasnd
remains and Is supplied from without, but
the manufacture and sale within the state
weuld cease, the value of our plant would be
wiped out for tha sole benefit of distilleries
It is not only destroying property value
without due process ot law, but It la taking
away the earning capacity of a Nebraska
Industry and turning it over gratuitously
to factories In other states.
Our plant la useless for other purposes,
and the argument that it could operate even
under prohibition for other than beverage
purposes only, is fatuous. With more than
half Ita business made Impossible, there
would not be enough left to operate profit
ably. Denatured alcohol must be produced
from material much cheaper then corn in
order to compete. A. L. MEYER.

If through the year your vole rang out
I'd never mora be old,
We'd build again our palace
From sands of purest gold.
