Embargo On Food Exports
New York Journal ! Commerce -
h There is no way to prevent agitation of the
fquestion of imposing an embargo upon the export
lof food products or to prevent members of con
gress from wasting time over such a proposal at
the coming short session; but it should be vigor
ously discountenanced by an enlightened public
'opinion. It is unfortunate if there has been a
jsliortage in the crops of foodstuffs this year,
twhen there is sucha demand for them; but there
jis no reason why there should not be a normal
distribution of the supply and the legitimate stim
ulus for. a larger production next year. Neither
the fact that farmers are getting an unusual price
5r what they have to sell or that, the cost to
consumers is high, should be a controlling con
taideration. There is no such prospect of domestic
"want or hardshio as to iustifv a Government inter.
erence witn trie course of trade, the main object
i wnicn wouiu oe to anect conditions lor the
ations at war in Europe. . ; ,
There is one lesson that ought to he tauoht hv
uch shortage of food suoolies aa there m k
1 here is an intolerable amount of waste and ex
ejravagance in tne consumption of these materials
n this country, while those warring nations are
tut on short allowance, which an embargo would
leriously aggravate. There is no law or possi
lility of law, except that of humanity or morality,
o prevent the waste of food which prevails
imong those who can afford it, to the sacrifice of
he health and comfort of those who cannot afford
t. But there ouht to be a wholesome sentiment
ostered by every available agency to counteract
t. The amount of wholesome food thrown away
jvery day at the public hotels and restaurants
ind the private kitchens of the rirh
!'cnt want throughout the mass of the poorer
wpulation. There is no compulsion that can be
ipphed to counteract this, but a great deal could
e done by voluntary and co-operative effort, if
here were a disposition .to do it. The policy

Mr. Bryan's Contradictions.
The latest issue of the Commoner gives us
Mr. Bryan's interpretation, or rather interpreta
tions, of the election, which always have more
than passing interest to Nebraskans, and more
than usual interest this time because of their
In his message of congratulation to the presi
dent Mr. Bryan asserts, "The states beyond the
Missouri have rallied to your support and saved
In another place he says, "The election was
won by the west and sooth without the aid or
consent of the east." '
Still another signed article he heads, "The
Women Did It."
Finally, he declares, "It was the 'dry' states that
furnished most of the electoral votes," on which
he predicates this ultimatum: "The party is now
free to take up the fight against the saloon it
must do ao unless it is willing to exchange the
support of those who saved it from' defeat for
the support of those who in the year of Our
Lord 1916 would1 have led it into a slaughter
house." At whom this scarcely veiled reference
aims everyone is permitted to conjecture.
The only claimants to whom no recognition
is given are the former progressive party-iteS
who are ordinarily supposed to have turned over
the two or three really needed pivotal states.
One more peculiar Bryan observation is this
with reference to Mr. Wilson's popular plurality:
"A president could not put much heart into his
work if he knew that a plurality of the voters fav
ored the election of another man." What clap
trap! If this be true now, why was it not also true
four years ago when the democratic president was
elected without a popular plurality? And why a
plurality instead ot a majority? Is it because even
with his made-in-the-south popular plurality this
year, the vote for the successful candidate still
falls far short of a majority? Then again, had
Mr. Bryan succeeded in capturing the electoral
college in any one of his three "lost battles," even
without a popular plurality, does anyone - doubt
he would have been able to take up the work and
put his whole heart into it?
Farmera and Good Road.
One of the resolution passed by the Nebraska
Co-operative Grain' and Live Stock association
does not ring true. It is the one dealing with
good roads, which commits the association to the
perpetuation of the present system of road
building. The objection raised to the permanent
road is the very one that is most eloquent against
the dirt road, the cost of maintenance. If a dirt
road is maintained in passable condition, it must
be the object of incessant care. Even then it
is not serviceable in the highest degree. The
farmer i the one who pay the high cost of bad
roads in Nebraska, as elsewhere. He pays it in
the added price of transporting all he sell and
all he buy. The first cost of a permanent road
necesiarily exceed that of a' dirt road, but it
doe not i "quire the constant care, nor the ex
cessive' repairs, i not subject to destruction by
every rain that falls, and will soon pay for itself
in the saving it make possible in the cost of
hauling crop to market Our farmer should
give this question close study before committing
themselves against the demands of progress...
' Change in European Cabinet. .. '
, Important changes .have been announced in
two of the great European cabinets, and it is
hinted that other impend. In time of peace
these might portend such modification of policy
a would be momentous, out under the circum
stance the iubstitution of one for another cab
inet minister, is not likely to have any pro
nounced effect on the general course of the
government concerned. ' In the case of the retire
ment of von Jagow from the position of foreign
minister for Germany, it is certain no alteration
in policy will follow. Dr. Zimmerman, who suc
ceeds, has long been von Jagow' second, and
is thoroughly committed to the general purpose
of the empire in its external relation. Person
ally, he is a Junker, but his official position ha
forced him away from his predilection in this
direction. It may be he will find his new place
more difficult to maintain without greater revision
of hi personal view.' Von Jagow' friendship
for the United States has left a precedent in
Berlin that will not be easily disturbed.
In Russia the retirement of Premier Sturmer
and the elevation of Alexander Trepoff to that
position of control in the ctar's government may
be hailed as another gain for the liberal element
of Russian politics. At any rate, -Sturmer ha
been a close adviser of the bureaucrats, while
Trepoff i listed as one of the liberal leader of
the empire. Problem of the war are cloaely con
cerned here, for the Russian cabinet controls
indirectly the military activity of the nation.
In England a demand has been voiced for the
retirement of Premier Asquith, that a younger
and more energetic man may come to the head of
the cabinet. These political switches, if they
have any significance, may be taken as signs of
discontent among the people over the progress
of the war, but do not presage any sweeping
alterations in it course. : '
v ' , V Art tor the" People. " ,
Members of the Omaha Society of Fine Arts
are impatient because its propaganda doe not
take hold of the masses as completely as the pro
moters would like. In some sense this is due to
a misapprehension, which the society is eager to
dispel The show and the lectures are not for
the "high-brows" exclusively, but for all. One
of the objects of the society is to create a better
understanding and fuller appreciation of the art
that is enduring, and that is a part of the better
and fuller life of the community. It is to awaken
among the whole people the desire for the things
that ennoble and endure that the society, now
labor. Its message is to everybody, and not to
a selected class. Art for the people has a distinct
value, but the people must not Tie blamed until
aroused from their indifference to art, and brought
to understand the distinction between the per
mament and valuable and the ephemeral and
Under the orignal charter granted railroads
in New Jersey members of the legislature and
certain constitutional officers of the state are
entitled to free transportation and scopes of other
officers squeezed in on the pass system. A re
cent court decision involving a pass privilege for

able constitutional line, beyond which minor
deadheads may not ride without paying cash
That hit Jersey jobholder in a tender spot.
i Francises Chronicle-
The American Federation of Labor protests
against any law compelling arbitration of labor
disputes in the transportation service. The rail
roads insist that the Adamson bill is unconstitu
tional. Representative Adamson warns the train
men that any attempt to strike pending the in
vestigation ordered by congress will be sternly
dealt with by the federal government, and notifies
the railroad managers that there is not the slight
est chance of the law being held unconstitutional,
and that if there is any resistance the law will
be made still stronger.
Surely that ia a pretty mess. A three-cornered
fight is the hardest thing in the world to under
stand, but apparently the meaning of it is that
the federal government, under its constitutional
authority to "regulate commerce among the sev
eral states," claims the same jurisdiction over the
persons engaged in interstate transportation that
it exercises over property dedicated to that serv
It is claimed that there is no interference with
individual rights. The individual stockholder
may sell his stock and, go out of the business, and
the individual employe may quit. But the service
required by the public must go on, and must not
be interfered with by collective action by either
party to a dispute.
The right to strike a a result of collective
action has been generally conceded, and the right
to use vilonce or intimidation to prevent contin
uation of service is not claimed. Chairman Adam
son seems to deny even the right to strike to
those engaged in interstate transportation. He
holds that those in that service must be content
with presenting their grievances, and must abide
by the result of arbitration as provided by law, or
quit as individuals.
Of course, this i nb new doctrine. Such is
the law of Canada and in some states of Australia,
and perhaps of the Australian commonwealth.
i he position ot Chairman Adamson assumes
that if even large numbers of the trainmen should
individually quit work, the service could be con
tinued by the employment of jiew men now un
employed, or less favorably employed, who would
be ready to take the vacated places.
. That assumption seems to introduce a new
element into the discussion. We have heard a
good deal of the rights of labor and the rights of
property. We have heard something of the rights
of the people. We have not hitherto heard any
thing of the rights of the unemployed to work if
they can find a job. . ,
Chairman Adamson s statement of Dolicv as
sumes that if one person leaves a job another may
take it, and, having taken it, may hold it and be
protected therein by all the power of the nation.
,That may be only the personal view of Chair
man Adamson, but presumably it would not be
publicly expressed unless in accord with the
views of whoever will control the action of con
gress. . ' : y"

Observations On Mr. Bryan
-New York Times -
From Omaha the story is solemnly sent forth
that Mr. Bryan, disgusted with the defeat of his
candidacy for delegate to the democratic national
convention and of his candidates for governor
and senator at the general election, will shake the
dust of Nebraska from his feet, emigrate to North
Carolina, and so on. It is an old yarn. In the
imagination of his enemies Mr. Bryan is always
quitting Neoraska, leaving the party. He
can't go to Florida, or Texas, or anywhere else
without being pursued by the antique myth. The
other day he said he was going to try to bring
the democratic party to favor national prohibi
tion. Now "many -Nebraska democrats believe
he has his eye on the prohibition presidential
nomination in 1920."
Mr. Bryan has his faults, but it can't be truly
said that he doesn't stick to the democratic party
or that he has been embittered by his political
defeats, whether personal or of policy. The dem
ocrats of his own state have to fight him at times.
They fought him notably last year. But he loves
to fight and he is a personage, an institution. He
doesn't lose his hold. He has no inconsiderable
genius for being wrong, some may think, but,
after all, he ia the head of the democratic family
in Nebraska. The Nebraska democrats may quar
rel with him, but they won't let anybody else.
' Mr. Bryan has never shown any disposition to
Set out of the democratic party. Possibly 4ie may
reed an enormous row in it by trying to force
prohibition upon it, but nobody can doubt the
sincerity of his opinions, however mistaken. Even
if he were nOt t loyal partisan,, he knows the im
potence of a national prohibition party. .
Possibly something quixotic and impossible
in the attempt to impose national prohibition on
the party of state rights allures Mr. Brytn, whose
"Jeftersonian democracy" is capable of many
queernesses. The south and the west, where he
has been strongest, are reasonably dry already.
They are dry, however, for the most part, under
compromises with Satan that permit a certain
monthly ration of mild and strong waters. Will
they accept absolute prohibition by an amend
ment making no concession to the weaker breth
ren and the stomach's sake? Meanwhile, the
Webb-Kenyon law, which shuts out of interstate
commerce rum in the original or any other pack
age trying to make its way from a non-prohibition
to a prohibition state, has yet to be passed upon
by the supreme court. . If that law happens to
be sustained, it is to be feared that a good deal
of quasi-dry feeling in the south and west will
evaporate. - Why doesn't Mr. Bryan use his
suasive eloquence to make sham prohibition give
way to real prohibition in nominally dry territory?

Eighteen thousand employes of New York
City, from the street sweepers up to the elective
jobholders, get wage boosts aggregating $1,147,
000 a year, effective January 1. The manner of

$12 a year in the pay of women janitors and $5,000

famous auditorium, goes Under the foreclosure

is also outstanding. The Garden occupies an
entire block of ground, 197 by 425 feet, and was
opened to the public June 16, 1890. A financial
nemesis pursued the arena from the start.
