Settlement by Compulaion.
At the debate over the demands of the em
ployes contiues, the probability of a general rail
road strike becomes more remote, and it now ap
pears that some sort of adjustment will be reached
under which the traffic of the country may con
tinue uninterrupted. Proceedings under guidance
of President Wilson are far enough advanced to
permit discussion of the methods adopted by him
to impose his viewt on both the contettants.
A peaceable tettlement of the dispute has al
ways been possible, but both sides assumed an
unyielding attitude, neither being willing to con
cede a' point to the other. President Wilson's
support hat encouraged the men in flatly declin
ing the offer of arbitration made by the managers;
the president's ex parte award of the eight-hour
day and its concurrent increase in pay disposing
of the main point. Whether this is entirely con
ceded by the managers, or some middle ground be
eventually found, the settlement will be one of
compulsion and not reached' by conciliation, and
both sides will leave the court dissatisfied with an
outcome determined by force instead of justice.
No amount of sentimental prosing can over
come this fact. Labor has always objected to
compulsory arbitration, and has uniformly
opposed legislation looking to this end, or to en
force arbitration awards. Labor leaders under
stand that a wage decision based on force can
not stand, and for this reason have preferred to
rely on conciliation, arbitrating points on which
agreement it not reached, and turning to the
strike only at a last resort. In this case the
president's course is tantamount to compulsory
arbitration, with a foregone decision against the
railroads. The unfairness of the procedure will
not be denied.
Whatever adjustment it ,finally reached under
hit plan, teedt of friction will be left, and a long
time will be needed to restore the basit of mutual
confidence essential to hearty co-operation.

Nebraska Wheat Abroad.
Omaha's grain market hat gained a much
detired distinction, in that ita inspection is now
authoritatively recognized by foreign govern
ments, and grain goes direct from this market
to Europe without the intervention of any other
inspection bureau. Thit point wat attained by
the timple expedient of convincing the foreign
buyert that the Omaha inspection is competent
and thorough, and that its integrity may be re
lied upon. The advantage of this to the wheat
raisers in Omaha territory is obvious. Their
product will stand on its own merit in the big
European market, where It it already recognized
as firtt elan becaute of itt superior quality. Bet
ter pricet and turer tale will naturally follow,
Here It one tervice the Omaha market has ren
dered its patrons that can scarcely be measured
yet. In return wheat growers will. seek vOmaha
more and more, because it is to their advantage.
Steadily the obstacles are disappearing, and the
future greatness of the "Market Town" is made
Omaha's Milk Supply.
A number of local dairymen have been fined
for failure to serve cuttomert with milk up to
the required ttandard. Thit it the outcome of
a rather remarkable ttate of affairs, the dairy-
men having relied upon the advice of the city
health commissioner, who told them to ignore
the law fixing the quality test for milk. On his
tide, the health commistioner tayi he felt justi
fied in permitting a reduction in quality rather
than subjecting the public to s threatened ad
vance In price. Late eventa show the public to
have been hit at both ends of the milk bottle;
the price wat put up, and till the" state intervened
the quality wat kept down.
Determination of the authorities to enforce the
law which teti t standard for milk and cream to
be delivered to customers brings a long fight
nearer to its end. Local dairies have been brought
up to s high plane of sanitary excellence through
a fight extending over s number of yeart, and in
which The Bee stood atone among the local
papers for months, facing threats of damage auitt
and other formt of retaliation because it fought
for cleanliness all along the line in the dairy
industry. -This fight has gained for Omaha's
milk supply s splendid reputation; the lowest
infant mortality among cities of itt size in the
whole country is the reward. Constant watch
fulnett it needed yet to maintain thit ttandard,
but the dairymen will in time learn to cheerfully
co-operate, became it it to their interest ai much
at to that of the public. -
The next point to be considered is the price.
Up-to-the-test milk delivered at now required
to Inture unitary handling, cottt more than it did
under the diacarded method, but thit hat already
been considered by the producers. New York and
Chicago have had much trouble with the milk
producers' combination, and it it to be hoped
Omaha will not have a similar experience.
At to Comparative Chances,
In hit latest Commoner, Mr. Bryan drawt
whit he calls "An Unpleasant Contrast" in which
he tayi: '-' -
"Iowa and ' Nebraska are separated by the
Missouri river but, unfortunately, that is not
the only water that teparatet the democracy of
the two ttatei. If the democrats of Nebraska
will read the platform adopted by the de
mocracy of Iowa, they will understand why the
party is hopeful of carrying that state thit fall.
Iowa democracy it looking ahead."
The irresistible and probably intended infer
ence it that Nebraska's democracy ii not looking
ahead and that, in Mr. Bryan't judgment, the
democrats have lest reason to be hopeful of carry
ing Nebraska this fill than they have of carrying
Iowa, and goodness knows the chance of carrying
Iowa for the democratic ticket it about as tlim
at it the chance of the republicani to win out in
Georgia. , )
' Humanity and Brotherhood.

rhapsody to speak of the idealt of human brother
hood." And this sentiment Rett unexoected eon.

Omaha, August 2S. To the Editor
of The Bee: I have spent some time
lately trying to fathom the mental
proceaaes of one of our Judgoa of the
dltrlct court, whose ways of handling
domestic matters brought before him
paw my understanding. Two casea
intoMng the remarriage of divorced
persons have juet been adjudicated
by him with the remarkable result
that lie left one husband with two
wives and cne wife with two hus
bands. In each case he set aside
a divorce because one party had re
married within leiw than six months.
It did not appear In either case that
the ordinal cause for divorce was not
sufficient, nor that It had been re
moved. Nor was it shown that either
of the spouses separated was .main
seeking reunion with the discarded
Elements 'that ordinarily would
warrant Judicial Interference with the
new matrimonial alliance were lack
inir In both cases, but It was shown
In one that the second wife Is soon to
become a mother. Thia sapient and
inscrutable judge, however, finds that
the remarriage had occurred within
six months of the granting of the di
vorce, set aside the legal separation
In each case, and ordered the renewal
of the bond that had been cut. To
readjust the muddle he has created,
he advises the first wife of the dru-bly-wedded
husb.ind tj again ipply
for absolute divorce, and that the
twice-splleed wife ask for the annul
ment of her marriage to her extra
spouse, overlooking the fact that she
had already been divorced from the
man she Is forced back upon, and
quite likely will be again. Of course,
an this muddle vindicates the ' ma
jesty" of the law, and preserves
Judicial Inerrancy, but how does it
square with common sense?
Wilson's Worthless Word.
Omaha, Aug. 23. To the Editor of
The Bee: One finds both Interest
and amusement in studying the ans
wers and criticisms of our democratic
friends in their response to Judge
Hughes' severe arraignment of the
present administration's misconduct
of national affairs. After carefully
reading their comments It Is some
what difficult (or me to believe that
these gentlemen have any confidence
in their ability to successfully defend
the administration. In fact, the
"baby act" seems to be rapidly grow
ing In popularity among these friends
of the president.
Everybody remembers that Mr.
Hughes had hardly had time to give
notice of his acceptance of the nomi
nation to the presidency before a host
of prominent citizens democrats and
assistant democrats constituted
themselves a vanguard of the admin
istration's campaign forces by repre
hending the republican candidate for
assertions contained In his message of
acceptance. They demanded of him
what they claimed was lacking in
his letter a denntte statement or tne
faults which he found connected with
the administration's policies. Now
that their demand has been fully
complied with, these gentlemen kick
like bay steers because of It They
spend less time in attempting to re
fute the statements or tacts enunci
ated in Judge Hughes' addresses than
they do in bitter complaint over nis
reiteration or tnem.
The democrats tell us the presl
dent has kept us out of war, and that
this achievement alone would entitle
him to triumphant re-election. I
have serious doubt that the president
is entitled to as much credit on this
score as congress; lor almost every
communication from the Department
of State to the German government
since the beginning of the present
EuroDean war has breathed a spirit
of unfriendliness, lr not or actual men
ace. 1 cannot neip Deueving mat naa
congress exhibited as high a temper
as did tne president in matters par-
t milarlv relating to tne uerman gov
ernment, we might now ba engaged in
military difficulties of a much graver
nature than our troubles with Mexico.
But I imagine that one of the most
unkindly and fatal cuts Mr. Wilson
has indicted upon his party Is the
shabby way in which he has con
stantly dealt with a class of citizens
who had hitherto almost solidly af
filiated with the republican party.
Juat before the last election Mr. Wil
son addressed a delegation of colored
voters, who called on him for nis
views and sentiment, and this. In part.
was the response oi our (men pros
"r futaure mv colored fellow citizens
of my earnest wish to see Justice done
them In every matter; ana not mere
grudging Justice. Every guarantee or
our law, every principle of our consti
tution commands this, and our sym
pathies should also make it easy."
