Same Old Virus of Repudiation.
The admiring public is challenged to behold
another dazzling stroke of finance, championed by
our democratic senator from Nebraska, by which
Uncle Sam's treasure box is to be filled without
taking any money out of the pockets of his own
people. Sharp inspection, however, discloses that
the concoction is nothing but the old virus of re
pudiation put up in a new bottle freshly labeled
'Tax upon sales of foreign-owned securities."
What Senator Hitchcock would do, as ex
plained in his own paper, is to clip off one or two
per cent of all American bonds or stocks sent
here by foreigners to be cashed in or disposed of
and. of course, if we could take one or two per
cent, we might just as well take ten or twenty per
cent or, at a pinch, confiscate the entire holding.
The inherent dishonesty of the proposed trans
action becomes plainer on closer analysis. For
years we invited foreign investors to send their
money here to help develop our resources and
finance our industries and the property repre
sented by their securities, as well as the earnings
of that property, is being taxed here the same
.as our own investments. When the foreigner
sends his stocks and bonds back he merely asks
repayment of the money he loaned us and he nat
urally expects to get full value or at least to get
the same price they would bring to any other
holder. On past investments the Hitchcock
amendment would be equivalent to repudiation of
whatever percentage the tax might be, while for
future investments the foreigner would either re
fuse absolutely to risk his money on such a haz
ard or he would discount the tax in advance and
deduct it from the original price.
A good way to test the soundness, or rather
unsoundness, of such a proposal is to reverse it.
Suppose, for example, the Canadian government,
after encouraging us to invest money in Canadian
industries, suddenly notified us that we could not
get our money back without handing a slice of it
to the tax collector, Our Canadian securities,
supposed to be worth a hundred cents on the dol
lar, would at once be shaved by the amount of
the tax and our only recourse would be to let
our Canadian cousins know that they would not
catch us as their victims again.
The Hitchcock foreign-holdings-tax scheme
differs only in degree from that more ancient
democratic financial "cure-all" that was going to
enable us to pay off one-hundred-cent debts with
fifty-cent silver dollars. That 16-to-l free coinage
repudiation was, aa all know, rejected and so will
be this new-fangled repudiation.
Keeping Omaha Clean.
One of our correspondents touches on several
weak spots in the general plan of municipal house-
Keeping in umaha, but is unjust in at least one
statement The newspapers of Omaha, whatever
their many other shortcomings may be, have never
conceded that the city is kept aa clean as it should
be. Thit doetn't apply entirely to the matter of
sweeping the downtown ttreets, which are well
enough cared for, but it hat reference to the gen
eral scope of cleanliness. Garbage and household
refuse it not properly cared for now, and never
wat. Thit hat been referred to many times in The
Bee, and the council has been
adopt tome method that would bring better serv
ice and more satisfactory results. Discussion of
the topic never got very far in the council cham
ber, for lotne reason, and the unaanitary and un
tatitfactory, wasteful and annoying method that
now prevails is perpetuated out of all reason.
When will the council be ready to approach thit
vital question and properly dispose of it? .
Make the Streets Safer.
Enough of reckless driving ttill persists to
render certain of the city's streets extremely per
ilous. In spite of warnings and examples, thought
lest or inexperienced autoista continue to drive
at high speed along thoroughfares where ordinary
prudence would tuggest caution at least. Omaha's
police force' it not numerous enough to provide
the close tupervitlon that it needed, to much must
be left to the automobile driven to look after. By
far the greater majority of these exercise the care
that it required, but some of them speed along re
gardless Of their own or other's tafty. tome way
mutt be devited to reach these, for the ttreets
of the 'city must be kept tafe. Accidentt tuch
aa that of Tuesday are avoidable, and that they
do happen it proof that somewhere tomething
it radically wrong. The prudent automobile
owner ought not to t.ffer became of the reckless
ness of another, but his great chance to avoid
blame lies in hit helping to suppress the menace.
, Another Big Railroad Problem. .
.. According to the Railway Age Gazette, the
trantportation linet of the United Statet are
facing a titration quite at important in itt pot
libilitiet at that of the ttrike. It is the thortage
of cart for, hauling: freight The figures given

if it it efficiently handled, and appeal to shippers
to assist them in keeping the cars moving. Thit

'- Publicity and Democracy.
, Publicity for Nebraska ia a good thing, and
t is well understood that the at. t,.. i-.j
the legitimate advertising to which it it entitled,
nu wnicn it tuny deserves. In considering this
fact seriously, do not overlook the further fact
however, that a representative body of newspaper
men and university authorities has gone twice to
legislatures, where the ,democratt held the purse
strings, asking for a modest appropriation to sup
port a bureau of publicity, and twice has the pro
posal been turned down by democratic votet. Now
that the issue seems attractive as a vote-getter,
the refrain it taken up by the, democratic chorus'
and it being attractively displayed in behalf of the
democratic office rhr vi..i
- ,,.v assurance will
be given ut that the democrats will not treat
tnit plan in the future as they have in the past
Nebraska will get the advertising it needs, but
not by waiting for the democrati to do the work.

society, but, if we talce a larger view, we

' E. Francis Andrews recently told ut oj
how the group of "composite" flowers, in
cluding tucb as the sunflowers, asters, chrys
anthemums, etc., (which constitute one-sev
enth of all known species) reached the head
of the vegetable kingdom by developing
system of co-operation. We also notice how
among the races of the highest product in the
animal kingdom, those socially inclined are
favored, while the more individualistic ones
succumb. The negr Increases in number
and. the Indian is being eliminated.
The present war battened the irresistible
trend of the white race. Over night, as it
were, private monopoly was changed to state
socialism. Thit in time will give place to
collectivism or more efficient co-operation.
The closer adhesion wilT necessitate the
condemnation of activlt harmful to thai
progress of society 'as a whole, while foster

to individual development through publi

More Truth Than Poetry.
Omaha, Aug. IS. To the Editor of The
Bee: The Omaha Commercial club teemt

Wilton for Humanity.
Omaha, Aug. 16. To the Editor of The
Bee: "Issues and Events," July 29, HI,
brings under the heading, "Humanity Spark
in Washington:" Press reports read to the
effect that President Wilton haa tent a per
sonal appeal to European rulers urging their
co-operation in relieving the ttarving people
of Poland.
The president hat our hearty congratula
tion. At the tame time we cannot help but
think of that little syllable "co." . At far
at we aware there has never been any sign
of co-operation from Washington for the re
lief of war sufferers, nor even an independent
operation. There has been instead the most
cold-blooded calculation! as to how to sweat
at much blood and coin out of the warring
countries of Europe.
This might be given at a frank and open
summary of Pretident Wilton's administra
tion since the summer of 1914. We will be
charitable enough to say that tt hat not
been all hit own dolngt and that he hat
been under great pressure of greedy finan
cier!, . Even the witdom of hit or their
policy it open to challenge, tinea this blood
money will bring thit country little or no
good, in the end. After the present period
of artificial prosperity (President Wilton's
innermost wish wat on prosperity for re
election purposes) there will follow a period
of reaction.
And it may be well that tome humanita
rian feelings are awakening in Washington.
We ahall gladly tee them develop to greater
strength. Comparing thia "opening" with
the procedural of the past one it led to be
lieve that other steps In a similar direction
might follow and it it possible that this ap
peal it merely a prelude to a proposal for
general peace. Thit may be more of a with
than a probability, but we hope it It true,
and we trust that the pretident may take
these steps.
The above writing Is intended to answer
the editorial of the democratic "World-Herald,"
"Peace and Humanity." and the letter
of John B. Coady in the same organ of
August IS, 1916: but at the editor of that
paper personally hat refuted several of my
letters I could not expect thit Wilton editor
to print this one at all.
So kindly give me space again to offset the
misrepresentation of Hughee and the republi
can party as stated in the World-Herald.

Promotion comes to him who sticks
Into his work and never kicks.
Who watches neither clock nor sun
To tell him when his task is done:
"ho tolls not by a stated chart
Defining to a jot his part.
But gladly does a little more
Than he's remunerated for.
The man In factory or shop
Who rises quickly to the top
Is he who gives what can't be bought.
Intelligent and careful thought.
No one can aay Juet when begins
The service that promotion wine, ,
Or when it ends, 'tks not defined
, 3y certain hours or any kind
Of system that haa been devised.
Merit cannot be aystematlted.
It la at work when, it's at play,
It serves each minute of the day:
'Tit always at Its post to see
New ways of help and use to be.
Merit from duty never slinks.
It cardinal virute It it thinks!
Promotion comet to him who tries
Not solely for a selfish prise
But day by day and year by" year
Holds hit employer's interests dear,
who measures not by what he earn
The sum of labor he returns,
Nor count his day of tolling through
'TH he's done all that he csji do.
His strength is not of muscle bred,
But of the heart and of the head.
The man who would the top attain.
Must demonstrate he haa a brain.

Brooklyn Eagle: If the Paper Famine

Chicago Herald: Mr. Bryan's citation of
the gift of a watch by employes In the ctvll
service at proof of his regard for civil serv
ice principles betrays a certain ignorance as
to the circumstances under which gifts to
official superiors are usually given.
Philadelphia Ledger: Now that tha United
States government hat got rid of the officer
who said the chief thing to do in tha army
aviation corps wat "to tit tight and draw
your salary," we may be able to mobilise
enough aeroplanes to save the wear and tear
on that lone machine on the frontier which

Philadelphia Bulletin: The democrat of
the tenate finance committee haven't the
courage to lower the income tax exemption
line to the $2,000 man, and teek to make
amend for that neglected revenue by doubling
the assessment on the M.000 fellow, making
the fault of discrimination. Inherent in thit
tax, the more glaring and offensive. A bad
case of "rattles" appears to be threatening
thete revenue-hunters.
