; Is the achievement of President Wilson ill
forcing congress to enact the railroad wage in
crease law under stop-watch threat of a strike
something for democrats to boast of? White
pondering on this question -it is interesting to
note that Mr. Bryan is enumerating in the forth
coming issue of his Commoner what he calls
"ten splendid remedial measures" by which the
democratic administration has, in his opinion,
"juitified public confidence," an advance copy
of his article having been furnished to and
printed by Edgar Howard's Columbus Telegram
over the signature of Mr. Bryan and dated "Alli
ance, Nebraska, September 5." Please observe
the date, which is subsequent to the enactment
and presidential approval of the force wage bill.
And yet in this list of "ten democratic wonders"
no mention is made of that last crowning per
formance, v.:-. . ,';'
Measured by the space devoted to it, Mr.
Bryan dwells most upon the thirty peace treaties,
in which he takes personal pride, with emphasis
on these three provisions new' to treaty making:
(1) That they embrace all "questions of every
kind and character;" (2) that they stipulate for
"a year's time for investigation and report dur
ing which there shall be no resort to force;" (3)
that the parties reserve the right to independent
action "at the conclusion of the investigation."
The procedure embodied in these peace treaties
Mr. Bryan, it wilt be remembered, recommended
and urged upon President Wilson for the settle
ment of the railroad wage controversy, but his
suggestions - apparently received no considera
tion. ' - :- ' ' ' '
Plainly, if the peace treaties, based on arbitra?
tioh, entitle the democratic administration to
credit, then the wage increase law, or rather, the
metod by which it was procured wholly by show
of force, and completely at conflict with the prin
ciple, of investigation and arbitration, calls for
condemnation. ' .-
; It's Great Little Oame. - '
. A. senator, in need is a friend indeed, and
therefore it is no surprise that the first thing to
occur to him after the return of our senator from
Washington is the sending forth through hi
newspaper of an appeal to hi subscribers to chip
into a boodle pot to be used in the interest of his
campaign. According to his own admission the
senator was too busy shaping all manner of legis
lation, from the eight-hour force bill to freedom
for the Filipino, to think of his own affairs. In;
fact, he has paid no attention at all to what for
months was going on outside of the senate cham
ber., But, now that he is at home, and fully real
izes that the Maine election, does not signify any
thing, he wants the boys to get together at once,
if not sooner, and put up the needful for a busy
campaign. It will be spent either locally or
otherwise, just as the donor desires, but as our
democratic '.senator is running on both ends of
the ticket he doesn't' care. What he is really con
cerned about now Is to have the other fellow fur
nish the funds to pay his bills. Come on in, ev
erybody, it's a great little game when it's played
New Problem for the Dutch.
Holland has been able to maintain 'its neutral
ity onj"bf efforts'thiTamount almost to participation-
fn the war, -It army has been under)
arms since August two years ago, constantly em
ployed iii guarding the frontier, while at sea the
Dutch have been more or less involved with all
the belligerent navies. Now it finds itself con
fronted with a new phase of the war, one that
has legal as well aa moral bearing involving a
strict construction of neutrality. Some thousand
of German children have been taken to Holland,
where they are now domiciled, . temporarily at
least.' Prof. Van Hamel, ' distinguished Dutch
jurist, raises the question- as to the responsibility
assumed in caring for these little folks, :
It is not 'that the Dutch are lacking in hos
pitality, but they have been required to assume
a considerable burden in providing for refugees
from Belgium and France, and for the interned
soldiers who have crossed the frontier for safety.
Now, the professor asks, is Holland to be used
a a restaurant to feed German children and Such
women aa may come with them? " If the answer
is affirmative, it goes a long way toward relieving
the economic pressure on the central powers, aa
well a to increasing Holland's load. A friendly
philanthropy, the professor argues, the practice
may continue; as an interference with the mili
tary policy of the Entente Allies, It may subject
Holland to future annoyance. "t ' .
' Incidentally, the American commission for
Belgian relief is appealing to the people of the
United State for a million dollars a week for
the coming year, to be devoted to caring for the)
needy who are dependent on American charity'
In the portion of Belgium and France occupied
by the Germans, The problem of the neutrals
are surely increasing as the war continues. '
, Uniform Dres for High School Girls, -.
Some renewal locally is noted of agitation of
the question of dress for the high schot girls of
the city. ' It is suggested by some that these
misses be clothed in a uniform costume, which
will be simple, durable and inexpensive, to the
end that pride, be diminished, modesty fostered
and democracy conserved. So long as the nutter
doesn't go beyond discussion little harm will be
done, but ahould the School board undertake' to
adopt and enforce a rule on the subject it ia likely
it will find Itself the center of quite a lively rum
pus.' Science may declare a more sanitary mode
of dressing Is advantageous; moralists may think
different lines are more modest, but who is going
to convince the joyous miss of high school age
she doean't know what (he - want to wear?
False pride should not determine, nor false mod
esty, what is a proper costume for a school girl.
That matter can be left with safety to .the girt
and her mother, while the school authoritiea may
be able to find plenty of occupation of more vital
concern to the public schools and their manage
' The offer to restore to Omaha the headquar
ters of the Department of the Missouri is only t
painful reminder , of the numerous, government
agencies which we have1 lost since we became
dependent at Washington on a democratic ' ad
ministration, with which out democratic aenator
has been almost continuously in disfavor. '''

I Hughes' Work in the West
I . ' nw-Ht- W. n-MM.ee tn tkm Ontloak. bmmJ
The author, last progressive candidate for
governor in New York, accompanied Mr.
Hughes on hi trip a correspondent.
' As we turned our faces from the Pacific coast
once more towards the east, there began to reach
us from the Atlantic slope expressions of political
concern and disquietude whicn i waa very rautu
interested to analyze. Hughet, it was said in
the hnatilc inumali and bv a few anxious political
correspondents, was not striking out from the
shoulder as he was of old wont to do in his hand-to-hand
struggle with his New. York foes. He
was limiting the range 6f his discussion. He was
not revealing his whole mind. His emphasis was
wrong. He didn t say enough about the European
war nr about our -international relations with
countries across the sea. He was not sufficiently
pro-ally or pro-German. And these particular
correspondents and -newspapers seemed' to be
under the impression that we Had perhaps been
traveling for three weeks through the frost belt
towards political aeteat ana despair.
I was interested, because no such impression
aa this could nossibtv be fathered in the west.
Not from any newspaper of any party, not from
any one of the vast audiences tnat laceo tne re
' publican candidate from Detroit to Seattle and
from San Diego to Denver. If ever a man talked
to people by the acre in this country, it was
Hughes on nil western trip. , - 4. '..
Hughe I remarkable in his power to extempo
rize the expression ot idea which have them
selves been thoroughly wrought out in advance.
And he delivered a series of such speeches, never
twice the same, from Detroit around to Denver and
beyond, before great eager and delighted crowds
ranging trom S.UW to u,uuu and li.uw people.
And everywhere Hughea left the trail of great,
.confident crowds, of republican assurance, and a
sufficient measure of the spirit and the practice
of reunion to give promise of good majorities at
least tor the national ticket in these old-time re
publican commonwealths. - , .
' ' I think he is more astute than his critics as
well as broader-visioned. In 'the west he was
cautiously but fundamentally constructive, and
beyond this he took-care, like the good, lawyer
that he is, only to file a -complaint against his
democratic adversary As I write this, the de
murrer which will- come from the. president at
the time of his notificatipn has not yet appeared.
When that comes, I took for the swift joining of
the issue and an oral argument that will cover
a wide and sufficient range. It ta not wise in
political conflict to unfold your whole strategy
too earlv.. . - ' .
But I think it is not going to be possible for
Mr. Hughes to satisfy entirely the more perturbed
and turbulent of his critics, who would have him
enter into concrete attacks upon Germany or Eng
land or dip deeply into some of the more har
rowing and ill-handled international events - of
the present administration, i No doubt he will
go further than he ha yet gone." No doubt he
will discuss freely the 'international rights and
duties of the country. But, whatever hi strong
personal views may 6e upon the ill-starred events
which have aroused the passion and prejudice of
great elements of out -population, he has a national
duty as the official head of a great party which
nc ia not at uueny to lurgcu ,.iiui auiiyiy iu win
in a paltry aense, but to create a fresh national
majority out of -auspicious and . discordant 'ele
ments in a discordant country, and to create that
majority for great patriotic purpose, m order
that In some national group there, may be the
power and the will to govern firmly and wisely a
hundred million people. . That is his job, and it
Involves a course of conduct and of speech which
the private citizen is under no obligation to fol
low. And he can nevfr forget, either, that he it
not simply going through the motions of the cam
paign for the salt; of the-mental and physical ex
ercise, but that after the, 4th of March' next he
is likely to be the president of this whole people;
of Germane and -Irish as well as of 'English and
Russians, 'or whom he must-furnish -a-greatly
needed leadership mto national unity; and that,
looking toward the future- period of difficult in
ternational reconstruction which la anrrn tn rnm.
he must at least' be careful to' preserve for him-

will from the great nations- with whom we shall
soon have to deal Intimately and ' intricately in
time of peace. It is a difficult task, but as the
campaign proceeds I expect to see the repub
lican candidate walk in it, with wise and clear
vision. v : -,''.'' -
The tour of the . west has made It clear that
the Hughes appeal to the whole country, will be
the appeal of an American, a .democrat who de
sires to see an organized country, .strong, efficient,
and aet upon doing what is right . He. Is an old
fashioned American in hi view of Sunday. We
didn't travel on that day. We rested and we
went to church if we wished to. Mr. and Mrs.
Hughes always did. There Is nothing narrow
about it. It is a day for good cheer and recreation
and rest. But neither the moving-picture con
cerns at Universal City nor anybody else could
commercialize Hughes on that day. Politics and
Srofit stopped at the threshold. , And we all had
chance to reflect and get a new vision of the
If Hughes is going to be president, and I hope
he ia, it will always help that he made his first

certain, when such time arrives there
will be comparatively few of us whose
heads are whitening with the frosts
of many winters that jvill be consulted
with regard to affairs of state and na
tion when that day arrives.
It is the county fair of today that
is an affair of concern to us. The con
cessions as conducted at the present
time will some day cause confessions
that that part of conducting county
fairs is wrong. It Is probably here
where the prophet- struck the key
note when he said "A fool and his
money Is soon parted." Also asking the
question, "Why spend ye your money
for that which is not bread?" It Is
here where there is a possibility of
youth getting in bad in purchasing
prize packages and playing games of
chance. The slime and filth ot the
snake lady and the dance of pioneer
days, with shows "for men only" and
"boys under 18 not admitted."
It is said that Nero fiddled while
Rome was burning. ' Shall we of to
day "fiddle" while youth burns on
the altar of foolish concessions that
have no educational value at the
county fairs of the present or future?
The county fair is right but some
of the methods and rules of conduct
ing same should be amended.
TEE J. AITCH.
The High Cost of Bread . :
. Avoca, Ia., Sept 18. To the Edi
tor of The Bee: You need not 'have
high prices on bread If you do not
want same. According to latest medi
cal works- about right living, fine
bolted wheat fllour is not aa healthy
as whole wheat ground.
Bo mill and elevator can thorough
ly cleanse the wheat from dust and
any foreign substance and grind the
same coarse like rye meal.
As this can be done at a few cents
per 100 pounds both cleansing and
grinding; you furnish your own sack
and do your own livery and do your
own baking and you will have two
pound loaves for iVi cents.
Bakers cannot do this work paying
high wages for help and using high
grade bolted flour, wax wrapping pa
per tor each loaf, delivery, credit and
lots of other service all these things
cannot be done for nothing. J. K.
