Ship Building in War Timet.
According to figure! furnished by the De
partment of Commerce, the United States for
the first time in half a century leads the world
in merchant shipbuilding. Ordinarily this would
be occasion for much satisfaction, but it is due
to the employment of shipyards in foreign coun
tries for war purposes rather than to the unusual
growth of American facilities. The returns from
Lloyds indicate a decline in the world's output
of stf-el merchantmen from a gross tonnage of
3,332,882 in 1913 to 1,201,638 in 1915. The latter
figures, necessarily, do not include any returns
from Austria and Germany, which were 61,757 and
465,226 gross tons, respectively, in 1913. But
British production has fallen from 1,932,153 in
1914 to 650,919 gross tons in 1915. It is esti
mated by Lloyds that the total decline in ship
building from the beginning of the war in 1914
up to date is 3,500,000 gross tons. To this
should be added an estimated total loss of ship
ping actually destroyed of 2,713,966 gross tons,
or a total shortage of more than six million
For the current year ship builders in the
United States estimate they will launch 351 steel
ships, of a total tonnage of 672,106. This is more
than three times the output of 1915, and only
about half the actual tonnage on order books.
The figures are interesting, as showing the pros
pects for a continuation of activity in shipyards,
no matter when peace is declared, and also for
the maintenance of ocean freights at a high
figure. The restoration of the German merchant
fleet to service will relieve the freight situation
to some degree, as will the removal of war risk,
but several years will be required to restore to
the fleets of the world the tonnage tost through
cessation of building and the havoc of war.

A Big Job Waiting for Someone.
Douglas county has more than sixty school
districts outside of Omaha in each of which a
school is being conducted under direction of a
separate local board of trustees. In other words,
we have more than sixty school centers in this
county, outside of Omaha, with independent man
agement and no common bond except the super
vision of the county superintendent and the col
lection of the school taxes by the county treas
urer. Of course all these little school districts
are governed by the same state laws and are
working along similar lines of child teaching and
training, but in the very nature of the case there
must be a tremendous lot of wastefulness and du
plication even without questioning the absolute
honesty and good intent of the business manage
ment. Imagine Omaha with sixty public schools con
ducted independently, each by its own board of
managers! How long would the. people rest
satisfied with such a situation? A law was put on
the statute books by the legislature not long ago
supposed to make possible consolidation of the
rural school districts in the county, yet no move
has been made so far as we know to take ad
vantage of it. The job of consolidating and unify
ing the management of the rural schools of Doug
last county, is waiting for someone to tackle it.

Buying the Danish West Indies.
Negotiations for the purchase by the United
States of the Danish West Indies have reached a
point where the deal it practically consummated.
This point has been approached several times in
the past, but the actual purchase has invariably
been blocked by the influence of some European
power. The islands, which lie off Porto Rico,
are of little value aside from their strategic im
portance. In the. possession of a first-class Eu
ropean power, they would be a continual menace
to our coast, permitting the establishment of a
naval base from which operations against the
United States would be easy. This fact has led
to several unsuccessful efforts by our government
to obtain possession of the islands. One point
has been in our favor; while we have not been
able to secure the group, we have been able to
prevent one of the greater European powers from
obtaining control. The turn in Danish affairs,
resulting from the war, has again placed the
United States in position to negotiate, and the
bargain apparently has been struck.
s This group, with Porto Rico, will give the
United States much better standing at the en
trance to the Caribbean, where Great Britain and
France now command. The strategical impor
tance of this is easily understood, particularly
when the Panama canal is given its proper weight
as a factor in war as well as peace. The main
tenance of our supremacy in American waters is
paramount to other considerations, and the ac
quisition of the Danish West Indies is a move
to accomplish that purpose.
Where Instruction Ii Needed.
Much good advice it being given by authorities
charged with looking after public health, inform
ing people as to how to combat not only the
dreaded infantile paralysis, but also how to avoid
contracting or spreading other diseases. This
advice in the main takes the form of constant
adjuration to cleanliness. People are urged to be
ever zealously watchful that homes and home sur
roundingi are kept clean, and police and other
public-inspectors are warned to be vigilant in
oversight of all placet where food and drink are
dispensed, that no danger be permitted to lurk
there. And always the people are advised to con
suit a physician at the first sign of sickness
among children. Right here is the rub. Many
poor persons are averse to consulting a physician
because of the expense. They are inclined to
rely on nature, or home remedies, rather than to
incur a doctor's bill. These people need to be
instructed in how to secure the services of the
various agencies that locally exist for furnishing
medical advice and treatment without cost to
those who are not able to pay. Omaha is not
overburdened with dispensaries, and other places
where assistance of this sort is given, but it has
tome, perhaps all that are needed. The poor
ought to be taught how to reach them.

Letter From Dr. Wiley.
Omaha, July 25. To the Editor of Th
Bee: One doea not like to hear the (treat
initiative work that wu accomplished by
Dr. Harvey W. Wiley belittled. It took a
brave man to be the father of pure food
legislation in thi acountry and his "pernic
ious activity" cost him his position. In 1909
he brought about the celebrated hearing on
"What Is Whisky 7" and later he fought
"the interests" concerning the adulteration of
foods, with unnatural preservatives, such as
boric and salicylic acids and benzoate of
oda. He believed that the housewife was
right and that good natural vinegar and
sugar were the more wholesome as preserva
tives and that the reason that the people
preferred the handiwork of their mothers,
rather than the grocery store, even if it did
spoil once in a while, was that the latter
took the short cut for commercial purposea
and that the work of the housewife was not
only more palatable but that a man had to
be in good health and with the stomach of
an oatrich to digest the other.
In the Spanish-American war, we heard
much of "embalmed meats" that is meats
that would keep all right in hot weather by
being converted into a kind of leather, but
they were "hell" on the stomachs of the

It is this sort of thing that has brought
us face to face with prohibition in this
state. In 1908 there was a hearing before
the royal commission in England on dis
tilled alcoholic liquors and the same at
Washington in 1909. Being interested to get
at the facts of the hearing and failing to
get the book of the testimony from any
other source, I appealed to Dr. Wiley and
he sent me the only copy he had. It is a book
of some 1,800 pages, mostly in fine print,
and it has evidently been bought up and out
of circulation. In this country only chemists,
pharmacists, distillers and rectifying men
testified, but in England they went Into the

Washington, July 19, 1916. Dear Dr.
Wilkinson: I thank you for sending me
the .clipping of your picnic speech and
your letter of July 12.
I am glad to know that the work I did
or tried to do to secure pure beverages
of an alcoholic character Is appreciated.
I have only a few moments to answer
your letter and to say, that while I appre
ciate your courtesy I think you make a
mistake in opposing atate-wlde prohibition.
When 1 lost my fight for the purity of al
coholic beverages I realized that the only
alternative to save the people from the
woes of adulterated whisky, brandy, rum
and beer was universal prohibition. I
therefore am a moderate, consistent, but
determined advocate of nation-wide prohibi
tion. I am, very truly, H. W. WILEY.
I am sorry that I cannot agree with Dr.
Wiley, for it was only of the manufacture
that his great hearing dealt with, with here
and there medical testimony from the Eng
lish commission. It seems foolish to me
that I should be so radical in dealing with
a great provision of a natural law.
I believe that a proper legislature In this
state can make progress, where Washington
did not, rather than make the mistake this
fall of prohibition and then have us all re
gret later that we did not educate a legisla
ture up to see that It was up to it to do the
proper thing in this sovereign state. Such a
bill can be drafted.

Baltimore American: The dead line in

Is the age of early maturity and of beat

the mind that the churches deliberately

There Is no reason, therefore, to have sur
