Course of the Army Bill.
President Wilson's refusal to approve the army
bill in the form it was sent to him emphasizes,
if it does not aggravate, one of the most remark
able situations in which this country has ever been
found. No more glittering example of one-man
power was ever presented than is furnished by the
course of this measure directed and shaped by
Representative James Hay of Virginia, chairman
of the house committee on military affairs. When
President Wilson reversed his policy last fall,
yielding to an irresistible public opinion, he called
representative members of congress of both par
ties into consultation and asked of them that they
give every assistance to a program for defense.
The agreement then reached was hailed with satis
faction by the country.
When the democrats came into power in the
Sixty-second congress, Representative James Hay
of Virginia was elevated from a position among
the minority members of the military affairs com
mittee and made chairman. In that congress, and
the one following, he showed his firm opposition
to the plans of the War department, and his de
termination to substitute his own ideas for those
of the experts. He did not give his assent to the
president's program when the Sixty-fourth con
gress opened, but began hit work by rejecting en
tirely the recommendations of the Treat commis
sion, which had been appointed to study and re
port on the military problem of the United States.
Secretary of War Garrison did his utmost to over
come the powerful influence of Hay, to no avail,
and when the Hay bill finally passed the house,
Garrison resigned. In the senate the Chamberlain
bill was substituted for the Hay bill, but in con
ference the character of the Chamberlain measure
was remodeled along Hay lines. It went to the
president without the Wilson plan for a conti
nental army, but retaining the Hay states' rights
views, as well as the obnoxious provision that led
to the veto. In its entirety it has been considered
as a makeshift rather than a constructive measure,
advocates of adequate defense hoping to secure
proper legislation at another time,
The astonishing fact in connection with the
situation is that President Wilson has aooointed
James Hay of Virginia to be a judge of the United
States court of claims, rewarding him for his
blockade of preparation for defense by giving him
life position on the bench. This must be im
mensely pleasing to Lindley M. Garrison, as well
as .to other democrats who sincerely believe in s
stronger and better military establishment.
It is all over but the balloting in the Pacific
coast state. The visit of Candidate Hughes
cinched a republican certainty.

Remember ths Union Depot
With all the talk of railroad strike, car short
age, new bridge over the river, and similar topics,
one of the most vital of all of Omaha's needs is
likely to be neglected. It is the Union passenger
station. Agitation last spring fastened attention
on this point for several days, but the change in
presidents on the Union Pacific allowed it to go
over. It should not be lost sight of, however, for
its need is more pressing with each passing day.
Not only is Omaha growing, and its travel in
creasing, bat the general business of the railroads
entering the city is expanding. This being true,
and the present facilities having been outgrown,
for how much longer will Omaha have to put up
with inadequate and antiquated depot accommoda
tions? Mr. Calvin has been here long enough to
get s line on the situation, and ought to be able
to tell Omaha what the Union Pacific is willing
to do in the matter.,
Time doea not alter nor familiarity dim the
brightness of Mr. Bryan's admiration for Mr.
Bryan's peace treaties. It is safe to say that Mr.
Bryan considers these formidable agreements the
product of the highest statesmanship of this or
any other age.
A defeated woman candidate for the demo
cratic nomination for congress in a Kansas dis
trict is going to run independent just to show
that she can play the game like a seasoned old
school politician. Wonder what name she would
have called her competitor for turning s like
trick if she had won out? .
Pedestrians have a certain amount of respon
sibility, particularly when traveling along streets
where traffic is heavy. They ahould cheerfully
accept this, but it should also be understood that
this acceptance does not deprive the pedestrian
of bis rights nor give to automobile drivers license
to exceed the speed limit or otherwise violate the
laws and the dictatea of common sense.
Shortage of Unskilled Labor
Importation to this and contiguous states by
the Pennsylvania railroad management of un
skilled labor from the south, a first instalment of
Mexicans and a later force of negroes, is an em
phatic suggestion of the condition of the unskilled
labor field, which is an essential resource for all
According to the immigration, office nearly
500,000 peraons emigrated from this country in the
last two years, or since the beginning of the war,
a very .considerable percentage of whom were
fart of the national force of common laborers,
he higher prices commanded by skilled labor
and the demand in excess of the available suoolv
has increased the normal rate of graduation from
the unskilled to the skilled ranks, which goes on
continually, snd there has been no adequate supply
' to make up the decimation of the former. Im
migration, which usually supplies the unskilled
force, has averaared for the last two veara less
than s fifth of the normal iapouring, and the per
centage of able-bodied laborers in this diminished
immigration is reduced.
The question of restricting immigration takes
on s new phase on ita economic side in view of
these facta. -The Question of illiteracy mav be
waived in view of industrial necessity, and from
' the social viewpoint, the average community wilt
consider whether illiterates from the south of
Europe are more undesirable than ignorance and
viciousness from other sections of the United

Record of Accomplishment
Not the most enthusiastic opponent of Presi
dent Wilson will want to detract in the least from
bis record of accomplishment But while making
up the books, why not keep the record straight?
For example, the provision in the Clayton law,
declaring that human labor is not a commodity,
was put there by Senator Cummins of Iowa,
r whom the democrats scarcely will claim as a sup
porter of Wilson. The amendment to the constitu
tion of the United States, providing for an income
tax, was introduced by a republican senator, and
met its main opposition in democratic states. The
Glass banking law Is the Aldrich law but slightly
modified. As to peace with Mexico, the invasion
of that country twice by armed forces of the
United States and the presence of 150,000 soldiers
of the United States along the border now is a
fair illustration of the pacific methods employed.
And Secretary Lansing very recently informed
England that the presence of an armed force near
the frontier is to be construed only as a hostile
set. The more the list of the administration's
accomplishments is paraded, the hollower it ap
Mr. Bryan Butts In.
'Old Doc" Bryan is a lover of peace, thor
oughly committed to it in principle and practice,
in the concrete and in the abstract, so much so
that wherever trouble exists he will be found close
by, with his first aid in his hand, ready to extend
succor or advice. That is why he so enthusi
sstically thrust himself into the dispute between
the railroad men and managers. It isn't that he
hasnt the fullest confidence in the skill of Dr.
Wilson, who has proven himself the greatest ad
juster of modern times; Mr. Bryan just couldn't
resist calling public attention to the, fact that he
has "something just as good." His peace treaty
soothing syrup is warranted to send to slumber
all angry feelings, and to engender among any set
of belligerents that beatific state of brotherly love
and devotion that makes a disagreement impos
sible. He doesn t ask the rail wage disputants to
withdraw from the ministrations of the president,
but he would like to get one good chance to try
his panacea. It doesn't look as if Dr. Wilson had
any thought of giving over the patient to the in
cert tour. He will talk legal sense to the ranch
men who have been fencing in government land
and will sing "Woodman Spare That Tree" to
those who have used the axe too freely among

Do Not Need National Trade Hark.
One of the bills favorably reported by the
house ways and means committee provides for
the adoption of s national trade mark to designate
American-made goods. The use of such s device
is attractive at first glance, but as it is given de
tailed consideration, its utility as well as its de
sirability disappears. It could not be used ex
clusively to mark superior goods, for the makers
of the cheaper snd less worthy wares would have
the same right to use it as the more commendable
manufacturers. It would entail a great deal of
extra work on the government to protect it
abroad, and after it has been established, It is of
doubtful service. The "Made-in-Germany" mark
is said to have failed of all that was expected of
it, and to have had some effect not especially ad
vantageous to German trade. It will be well, per
haps, to allow American-made goods to go into
the world's commerce as they have in the past,
and not undertake to give them an extra boost by
attaching s national trademark.

Picking up a pot of chemicals of horrible
odor, he stuck his finger into it, and then into his
"Taste of it, gentlemen," he commanded, as
he passed the pot from student to student.

rebellion through his whole soul, the old profes
sor laughed in triumph.
"I told ye sol" he shouted. "Ye dinna use
your faculties of observation! For if ye had ob
served ye would ha' seen that the finger which
I stuck into the pot was na the finger which
stuck into my mouth!" Chicago Herald.
Clever Work by Burglars.
They really do things better in some ways in
other lands. For example, crooks worked the com
bination of a safe within five yards of the police
station door in Vancouver, B. C, and got away
with $10,000. In this great land a similar opera
tion would damage the combination or leave some
mark as a souvenir of the visit.
Where to Invest Money.
n u. a..- iT the Editor ot The
. a.,no- letter in your paper few
dayg ago from a gentleman who wai not

building and loan associations and
for advice ai to what lie coum un

In thia city that could use thin money, can
offer good aecurity and are willing to pay a
larger intereat than the building and loan..
Factories already located in Omaha, with men
.kfittsr .t th.ir he. ili. are struggling along
without sufficient funds to accommodate their
growing business because ol tne very
pid and dangerous idea abroad here not to
put money into manufacturing enterprises.

factories already here nor new ones coming
in are going to succeed in Omaha until the
people of Omaha waken up. shake off their
swaddling clothes and with them the primitive
idea that real estate ii the only safe thing
to invest money in.
Omaha haa had one terrible slump in real
state. This is well remembered in me
east, and I was asked when there recently
what this city now had to prevent a recur
rence? Were there many factories here?
Omaha has grown to a point where it is
dangerous to go without more value creating
and sustaining industries, and th people of
Omaha must change their vtewa In this re
gard and do something more vital than boost
if it keep the factories it already nas ana
sets new ones. There is s great deal of
eastern money in Omaha, which ts all right
up to a certain point, but it is unfair when
we have become able to carry part of our
own load to induce people from other places
to start factories here, put their money in
these enterprises, which means pull up
stakes, cut loose from a great deal they
hold dear, to root or die among strangers in
a town that has no claim upon them be
cause of its unwillingness to bear any of
Its financial burdens, Omaha people being un
willing to loan money to help carry on le
gitimate industries even when good security
Under these circumstances how can Omaha
hope to succeed as a manufacturing city,
when eastern cities with the best railroad
connections, located on navigable rivers and
where natural resources make manuraeture
convenient and cheap are offering' large bo
nuses and sites to Induce new industries to
locate with -them, besides being prepared to
give financial assistance to worthy concerns
already located. As anyone coming from In
dustrial centers knows, it is not bad sign
for a firm to need money. This need does
not always arise from the same cause, but
whatever the reason additional money will, in
the majority of cases, tide them over dearly
bought experiences, lack from quick increase
of business, etc.
Shame on Omaha, that after a brave strug
gle of two or three years a worthy firm was
let go to the wall some time back, a factory,
the only one of its kind in the city. I have
never been a manufacturer, but having re
sided most of my life in one of the largest
industrial centers in the country and still
being in touch with industrial people know
whereof I speak.

Danbury, Conn., Aug. 15. To the Editor
of The Bee: Referring to your editorial
New Ideas Are Worth While" In The
Bee of the 12th inst., I am at loss as to
whether I should address my letter to you
or to the Commercial club, so I'll take a
chance on you. I have spent the last four
seasons either in the east or in California
and have met many people who have traveled
from coast to coast through Omaha, and it
has been a great pleasure to me to hear
them praise our well paved streets, our beau
tiful parks and our stores and modern build
ings, both public and private, but they almost
invariable ask : "Why do you allow your bust-
ness streets to be so disfigured with over
head signs and transparencies T"
have never been in a city of near the
population of Omaha where the disfigure
ment waa ao 'universal or so bad, and I
would ask: la It not within the power of
the City Planning board to abate the blotch 7
It might Include the "Welcome" arch.
If they have no power I suggest an ordi
nance from our commissioners placing the
power somewhere to wipe them out, and
also prohibiting the erection of any sign or
transparency that projects more than three
feet from the building line, and that no pro
jecting sign or transparency shall be erected
until a drawing or model of the completed
design has been submitted to and approved
by said authority. There should be official
supervision of their installation.
Wherever I go I find lots of people who
want to know about Omaha and I am doing
the best I can to Inform them with the aid
of the Commercial club and Grain exchange
illustrated and statistical matter, and the
letter's illustrated book of its inception and
growth makes them sit up and take notice.
It is hard for them to believe ao much has
been accomplished in twelve years.
