While the senator from Iowa was on the floor,
the president was calling into his office house

The inability of the democrats to plan for the
good of the country, or to carry but plans when
laid before them, is emphasized by this episode.
Pledged to provide.for the defense of the country,
congress would have left the country defenseless

Never has the country witnessed such an exhibi

ment. A congress whose majority has been with
out leadership, driven to definite action only by
party expediency, can not escape the reckoning
the people will surely exact.

Chicago's new municipal pier, located three
blocks north of the river, is a notable public im
provement combining utility and recreation. It
extends out into the lake an eighth of a mite, is
two stories in heighth, and serves for shipping
uses on both sides of the two long arms of the
' structure. An electric street railroad, built on
brackets at the second story, circles the arms in
side. At the lake end is a magnificent concert hall
. or convention hall. Outside it are wide balconies
. where thousands, may refresh themselves with
'ake breezes. Back of the hall are two floors open
on all sides, where young and old gather for rec
reation, rest and refreshment The pier is fire
proof through out, and ranks with the public
beaches as a mighty source of summer comfort
lor the people.

. Price of the Loaf of Bread.
Th master bakers of the country have about
determined that the S-cent loaf of bread is to go
to the discard, snd. that hereafter the unit will be
the 10-cent loaf. It remains to be aeen to what
extent the public will agree with them. It may be
the cost of baking 500 double-sized loaves is less
than that of baking 1,000 of the smaller, but that
is the baker's problem. Nor is it so great as will
be his task of convincing the public that the
larger loaf is the one to be bought. Tradition
has fixed the price of bread at S cents, in this
country at least, and it is hard to change a stand
ard so established. The smaller loaf !s more con
venient for the small family, as it is consumed
sooner, and fresh bread is sought by most people.
This is the chief reason for the small loaf. On
the baker's side, the increasing cost of material
has been met by the diminishing size of the loaf.
Efforts to fix a standard of weight have failed, and
perhaps justly, because the baker Is entitled to
his reasonable profit, and he can only secure it by
having a sliding scale of price or weight in order
to meet the fluctuations in cost of materials used.
It will be interesting to note the progress of the
proposal to double the standard of price for bread,
not because of the question of justice Involved,
but for the retson that it is expected to overturn
a well rooted custom.
1 "Deserving Democrats" and the Law.
When Mr. Hughes, in his speech of acceptance,
accused the administration of many shortcomings
and transgressions, the chorus of Wilson defend
ers lent up a mighty shout for a bill of particu
lars. This is now being furnished. At Detroit
Mr. Hughes went a little into detail as to the na
ture of the charges made against the present ad
ministration. One of these has to do with the
violation of the spirit as well as the letter of the
civil service law. In connection with the geodetic-
survey, a most important banchpf government
service, it was cited that 104 places had been made
vacant by removal of incumbents, and sixty-two
of these jobs were handed to "deserving demo
crats" without any reference to the classified list,
and in violation of law. More than 30,000 new
places created by the democratic congress, were
filled by presidential appointment and no atten
tion paid to the civil service law.
c This raid on the public treasury in interest of
partisans is not the greatest of the offenses of the
administration in exercise of its appointing power.
As the campaign' goes on, the demand of the
democrats for particulars will be well met, and
the people will get a good look at some of the
things that have gone on at home white the presi
dent was "keeping us out of war." ; '

" Perpetrating en Injustice.
A case in connection with the Chicago post
office administration brings to light a practice of
the Poitoffice department that is, to say the least,
peculiar. An employe was charged with an of
fense that would have secured his dismissal, had
he been found guilty.. Full Inquiry showed him
to be innocent of the charge. However, he will
not be reinstated in his position, because of a re
cent rule that no employe of the Postoffice depart
ment who is accused of a crime, even if proven in
nocent shall be reinstated. The injustice of this
scarcely calls for argument. In this instance the
charge wai brought by a postoffice inspector, who
failed to substantiate his allegation, but the man
loses his' place as foreman in his division just the
same. If the rule stands, it will be easy at any
time to secure readjustment of force by the simple
expedient of bringing a trumped-up charge, de
grade the man and set the favored one over him.
Postoffice employes have enough to contend with
under ordinary circumstances, and should not be
made subject to this remarkable device for se
curing places for "deserving democrats."
. Butchers and the Beef Supply.
. Perhaps The Bee ought to explain to the.
butchers than in its figurative proffer of the fatted
calf in recognition of their presence there ex.
isted no intention to run counter to their sugges
tion that veal be eschewed. It was merely a co
Incidence, the cartoonist having in mind to picto
rial I v express the acme of welcome, and to offer
what is still esteemed the choicest of morsels for
the delectation of our visitors. With their argu
ment that the calf should be given an opportunity
to grow up, The Bee is in perfect accord. Slaugh
ter of th young of the food animals is an ex
travagance the people? of the United States can
not afford to" longer indulge in, unless they .wish
to come to the time when meat will be out of
reach of ordinary mortals. We are a race of meat
eaters, but we have developed habits that are ruin
ous to the very source of supply op which we
must depend. . Experience has driven the butcher
to the conclusion that the situation is hopeless,
but it may be the great American public will learn
in time that when eating veal,, lamb. or young .pig,
the future is not only being mortgaged, but ac
tuary destroyed. ' Diminishing herds can not be
restored if the young animals tare eaten.
Missouri's primary vote shows large republican
gains. This is not surprising because Missouri is
progressing and determined to line up with the
live ones. But the most significant straw in the po
litical current is the announcement that 550 demo
crats, the entire voting population of Zapata coun
ty, Texas, will support the republican presidential
ticket. Zapata democrats are close enough to the
border correctly to weigh Mexican blundering and
foreshadow national condemnation for that spine'
less policy. -, ..

Thraa Sides to! Prohibition.
Omaha, August 7. To the Editor of The
Bee: During tha last few months wa have
read articles in our dally papers discussing
the pros and cons of prohibition, and I guess
it is clear now that prohibition is three
cornered fight. 2 to 1, as it were, between
different business Interests. One class of
business men want prohibition because they
have the substitute and these men know
they will catch many nickels and dollara, as
long as It lasts, that now go by way of
liquor.
One of our prominent labor leadera eays
people employed in this substitute, line of
work need organisation, for as a whole their
working conditions are deplorable. The labor
organisers are finding these business man
hard nuts to crack.
These fellows take advantage of the large
number of men thrown out of employment
by prohibition and generally get their help
cheaper than ever before.
The other set of business men furthering
It are in it chiefly for this last named reason.
They are among the richest of financfera In
the land. They own big industrial establish
ments and also the saloons laying nearby.
A portion of their workers' pay alwaya re
turns through their own' saloon. Tha ery. of
these fellows is. "Drink Impair" the efficiency
of labor." They didn't know about thia a
few years ago, when the breweries were par
ing a mieerable wage, as they still are doing
today. Everything was all right, but whan
the labor organisation unionised the brewing
industry, practically a 100 per eent, and
made them pay S20 to 122 per week, eight
hours and six days for work, some of it no
more skillful than that of a washwoman;
then something had to be done., or else they
would soon have to pay a living wage to
their employes.
When a few years ago the brewery em
ployes In Los Angeles went out on strike de
manding an increase in par, the brewery
owners were forbidden br the business men's
organisation to grant the wage increase. Out
side beer shipped into town soon ended the
strike in favor of the brewery workers. Well,
the brewery bosses got in bad with some of
their rich friends and organized labor found
out whr the big corporations want prohi
bition. That it cheapens labor no one can deny
now any more. Hera wa estimate that about
10,000 to 12.000 men of some sixty different
vocations will be out of employment. In
Colorado the estimated number doubled it
self. When it went prohibition many em
ployers began to complain of dull business
and laid off men, and those working eight
houre.were put back to twelve hours, and
the committee visiting the governor sought
work tor 40,000 men instead of 20,000.
Won't It work similar in Nebraska.
WILLIAM WBAGE.
Demecratle Inconsistencies.
Roldrege, Neb., Aug. 8 .To the Editor of
The Bee: Pour years ago the battle-cry of
the democrats was tha high cost of living
with the high prices given as proof and the
tariff as the causa. Then they took a turn
at the wheel and prices began to fall and the
boast was just as in the nineties t "Sea what
wa did." But in seventeen months from the
time they got hold of the keys grain and live
stock took such a slump on tha market that
factories dosed, imports were on the increase
with exports on the decrease, tha trade bal
ances going against us from f 10,000,000 to
116,000,000 a month, expenses of government
running away beyond Its income with that
old time sign board with the regular Mowed,
in-the-bottle trade mark of democracy de
ficit over our strong box. Then came their
chance of escape. War began in Europe so
they put on a stamp tax and called it a war
tax when they had already added several
taxee to the list. Therefore prices began to
boost, bat if It was spoken of they said the
war caused it.
On July S of this rear, 1911, tha World
Herald In proving ( t) the democrats are tha
sura causa of this prosperity cites the prices
of hogs on June 80 of thia rear as 19.47 per
hundred pounds and compares that with the
price of same day 1911 (or Ave years
previous) when the price waa IS.S0 just
when they began their howl of the crimes
of high tariff, cause of high prices and high
living. Now he la taking the credit for this
50 per cent raise as due to his party's man
agement of government affairs and uses it as
proof of the honor due them. We wish that
editor would tell us which time ha waa
sincere in his statements.
The other Omaha Wilson champion In an
editorial in its lighthouse column of just
tha other day on tha wool prices (the sheep
pussle he called it) shows the price of wool
has increased since they put It on the free
list and how the Imports had increased at tha
same time in spite of the wail of the high
tariff crowd. Now will he go back four
years and bring up some of is editorials In
which he proved the high prices of wool, of
14 eente to IS cents, was due to the high
tariff and now boast of the present price of
18.7 eente (in spite of its being on the free
list, It is higher than for years). If things
are lower under a high tariff, as thesa wise
ones prove ( ?) whr not have the high tariff
and get the expenses of running the govern
ment in that way instead of three or tour
direct taxes, for according to their own
etatementa, and even boasts, wa would not
fill it that war.
Again, we have another rank piece of demo
and (anti everything bunch) that ia their
united stuck on Mr. Hughes on his "Rule
of Reason." Well, we ought to expect them
to be opposed to all reason as soma of the
editorials I have referred to will prove. Add
the Commoner and eee what tha "three of a
kind" had to say about that four years ago.

One Side al Parochial Quarrel.
Omaha, Aug. 7. To the Editor of The
Bee: On July 17 I arrived In Omaha and
waa requested by the members of the
Roumanian church, located at Twenty-ninth
and T streets, to take charge of the same. I
have in my poesesslon the neceesary licence
and documents, from the highest authority
of the church in Roumania, entitling me to
take such a position and fflciate as pastor of
this church. On August 6 one Rev. Ilia Pop
came here from St. Paul, Minn., and began
circulating the report that he would make
me leave the eity. Without authority from
tha members of the society, except four or
five wham he seemed to have gotten with
him, on Bunday he forced his way into tha
church and proceeded to denounce ma before
tha few people who were in the church, and
made etatementa derogatorr to mr character
which were entirlr untrue. He stated that
I had no authority to act as pastor of the
church and many other things which war
without foundation In fact.
On Mondar I Hied complaint against him
in court, hut ha evidently heard of tha
charges and left the city. I am therefore
writing this to give my side of the etory,
inasmuch as I did not have tha opportunity
to meet him In court to sompel him ta prove
his chargoe. This same party, for reasons
whfch t do not know, has attempted to inter
fere with mr work in other cities. I am will
ing to mast him at any time on tha charges
which ha makes. I have the document to
fully prove mr standing and right to act as
pastor at any ehureh of ihls denomination.

OUR LEADER.
Up from tha ranks he came,
Our leader strong and brave;
Climbing to place and fame
By deeds that true honor gave.
No blemish mare his record falrf
Clear and clean the path he's trod.
His righteous aim wrongs to repair
And rightly serve man and Ood.
No politician's tricks profane t
The history of, his great career,
Only methods honeat and aana
He used his course to ateer. ,
The party boss he ever spurned,
The place-nun ter quit, repeueu.
But honeat merit never turned
From the just rewards he held.
"Amerira Ural," the wa.chword
He sent ringing through the land.
Amerlca'a sons with one acoord
Approve that slogan grand.
A nation prepared and efficient.
He would have our country be,
With its power made sufficient r
For honor and security
All hall! tha republic's son,
Who In this fateful hour
Answered the popular summon
To challenge democracy's power.
Rally to the standard true
Of the man whom all should choose,
Who would free the land of a weakling
crew.
That'a our leader Charles B. Hughes,
