Between Sweden and Great Britain.
Friction between Sweden and Great Britain,
engendered by the mail situation, is reported as
increasing. The Swedes have been able to retali
ate on England, by holding up British mails des
tined for Russia, the only direct communication
between London and Petrograd being by way of
a Swedish port Sweden is the one neutral coun
try that has this material advantage, placing it on
something of an equality with the British. As a
neutral nation, the right of Sweden to intercept
or delay the passage of mails is questionable. It
gains some color of justification from the action
of the allies, which has all but suppressed traffic
between the Scandinavian countries and the rest
of the world. At present there is really nothing
tiew in the situation, but it has been aggravated
by the course of the Swedes.
Sweden has from the first vigorously resented
England's interference with its intercourse with
other nations. While the Swedes are not more in
clined to favor Germany than the other Scan
dinavian nations, they have a long standing ac
count to settle with Russia, Finland being the
latest of the items, and this doea not predispose
them in favof of the entente allies. For this, as
for other reasons, the Swedes have firmly de
clined so far to submit to the termt that are en
forced against Norway and Denmark, but insist
on being accorded all the rights that belong to
neutral nations. That the relations between the
two countries are strained has been known for
many months, and that the situation may soon
reach an acute stage is clear.
The long-delayed answer of the British gov
ernment to the United States protest against in
terception of mails is promised shortly, and from
it may possibly be gained an inkling of the course
by which the British hope to avoid complications
that may be aeriout for their cause.
Governor and Guaranty Fund. '
To be perfectly fair in the matter, The Bee
hat given space to an explanation from Governor
Morehead of hia action, as member of the bank
ing board, in transferring the' deposit guaranty
fund held by a liquidated bank, to a newly pro
moted bank taking over the other's old charter,
which- would otherwise have been relinquished.
The governor insists he is perfectly conscientious
although plainly disturbed by what he calls "a
weak place of the lawl" -
We do not hesitate to express our opinion
that the governor hat an entirely wrong concep
tion of the nature of the deposit guaranty fund.
Correctly viewed, this is, in reality, an insurance
fund and the premiums are left with the bank
paying them merely for accommodation. If this
were fire insurance, or burglar insurance, or fidu
ciary insurance, no bank going out of business
conld claim back the premiums paid in for which
it haa already had protection even though it ttill
had the premium money on deposit. The most
that could possibly be asked would be return of
the unearned premiums or of a stipulated reserve;
but to enjoy the insurance benefits and then get
back all the money would be out of the question.
' In laying1 this, we do so without regard to the
partiet involved in the particular transaction
which the governor is trying to justify and to in
dicate how the law must be changed to prevent
itt further abute.

Thit remarkable tentenee wat uttered by the pre
siding member of the Douglas county insanity
commissioners announcing the decision in an im
portant case. The proceeding involved the lib
erty of a woman, and the witnesses on one tide
or the other included the members of the Wel
fare board, brothert and sisters of the accused and
others. Yet the commissioner! were at the end
left to make up their opinions in the full belief
that the whole truth had not been told. Com
ment on thit teemt unnecessary. It is referred to
now only to reinforce what The Bee has hereto
fore pointed out,' that witnesses hold the truth
entirely too' cheap. : They take a solemn oath
that they will tell "the truth, the whole truth
and nothing but the truth," and then as their in
terest prejudice or attorney guides them, will dis
tort, evade or supprett tnd when they are through
the judge on the bench, the attorneyt on both
tides and all who have listened to the testimony
know that the truth hat not been told. The case
here referred to it not an isolated example; it is
jutt the most recent, and one of the very few
where the examiners have openly declared that
witnesses on both tidet have lied, , and that all
the factt have not been brought out Integrity
of our conrtt is thus jeopardised, and no effort
it made to check the evil Placing the blame is
not a difficult process, but who will aay why the
judget on the bench permit the practice? -.

They were lured thither through promises of
prizes, riches to be. gained by displaying for the
effete and cultured persons the simple pastimes
of iariat spinning, brocho "butting," "bulldogging"
and the like, that make up the daily play of boys
and girlt of the citmitsouri region. All their
wonders they performed and in ' return were
pictured in the metropolitan press, received
much kindly mention written after the fashion
of what Broadway conceives to be the linguistic
limit of the unfortunates who spend their lives
in communing with range cattle, and generally
were treated at curiosities at well as guests.
Later they learned of what Broadway hospitality
consists, and in what essentiala it differs from
the brand they are accustomed to at home,
Prizes, so tempting on paper, were not paid,
and footsore cowgirls and cowboys were left to
shift for themselves as best they might on the
inhospitable sidewalks of the most heartless city
in the world. Finally their plight touched the
heart of somebody, tad the promoteri of the
ttampede will undertake to see that the penniless
punchers get transportation home, where they
will very likely atay the next time they hear of a
cowboy ahow being staged on Coney Isle or

THE LITTLE COAT.
James Whltcomb Riley.
Here's Ms ragged "roundabout,
Turn tha pockets Inside out;
See; his penknife,' lout to use.
Rusted shut with apple Juice;
Here, with marbles, top and string.
Is his deadly "devil sling."
With its rubber, limp at last
As the sparrows of the past.
Beeswax buckles leather straps
Bullets, and a box of cape
Not a thing of all, I guess,
But betrays some waywardness
E'en these tickets, blue and red,
For the Bible verses said
Such as this his memory kept
Here's a fishing hook and line,
Tangled up with wire and twine,
And dead angleworms, and soma
Slugs of lead and chewing gum.
Blent with scents that can but come
Prom the oil of rhodium.
Hers a soiled, yet dainty note.
That some little sweetheart wrote,
Dotting- "Vine grows round the stump,"
And "My sweetest sugar lump." . .
Wrapped In this a padlock key
Where he's filed a touchhole eeet
And some powder In a quill,
Corked up with a liver pill;
And a spongy little chunk
Here's the little coat, but, oh,
Where Is he we've censured sot
Don't you hear us calling, dearf
Back, come back, and never fear
Tou may wander where you will.
Over orchard, field and hill;
You may kill the birds, or do
Anything that pleases you.
Ah. this empty eoat of his,
Every tatter worth a kiss;
Every stain as pure Instead
