RUSSIA, OUR FRIEND,
WILL BEOUR RIVAL
Ministers Plenipotentiary Tell
Their Secrets Load Enough
for Omaha to Hear.
CZAB IS RACING AHEAD
By A. R. CROH.
Today, folks, we will discuss big
international problems. We will be
come those fascinatingly-romantic
people, ministers plenipotentiary and
envoys extraordinary and interna
tional spies and such like. Court gos
sip shall be our table talk. We shall
know just what "Russia thinks" and
what ' England believes." We really
ought to wear high hats and frock
coats and carry gold-headed sticks.
But if you hsven t got on your high
hat and frock coat, just assume a
blase expression and we will pro
ceed. The preside nt of an Omaha bank
who has traveled abroad extensively
said to me the other day, as we were
seated in his palatial office, (pretty
good setting for the scene, eh?) he
said to me:
"After the war look out for Russia.
A quarter century will see it, next to
the United States, the greatest indus
trial nation on earth. It has the raw
materials, a vast and rich land, a
strong people, plenty of fuel. Even
today Russia is manufacturing an
enormous quantity of things it never
knew it could make and which it has
always bought from other countries."
iiOOk Wise, Please.
At this point rou should nod vour
head sagely. You should convey, in
some subtle manner, that you were
discussing the very same question
with Count Alexis Bohroffski Boug
anrfski at a dinner given in the
Diplomats' club in honor of Prince
Romanoff Pereyaslaf Yosnagovitch
and that you and the count had come
to the same conclusion.
AU this mav be as it miv be. But
when we turn to history we find fact
in place of opinion and conjecture.
Ana the hard tacts ot history show
that Russia has always been the
greatest friend of the United States.
Kussia, monarchal, despotic Rus
sia, has ever stood the champion of
the young republic, the people's demo
cracy. This fact, too, the Omaha
1 never could understand why pop
ular opinion here was all on the side
of Japan in the Russo-Japanese war,"
he said. "It must have been founded
upon ignorance of what Russia has
done for us. Take the days of the
civil war, when our existence as a na
tion hung in the balance. When
Europe was about to interfere on be
half of the south, it was Russia that
put its mighty foot down on the
That Alaska Deal.
"Russia sold us Alaska for a nomi
nal sum. a fine thing for us and a great
act on the part of Russia, an act which
didn't have even the selfish motive
that animated Napoleon when he sold
us Louisiana. Napoleon did that to
'give a maritime rival to England that
will humble its pride.' '-
Oo back to the days of the Revo
lutionary war. King George II was
looking around for hired troops to
send over to conquer us. He applied
to Russia, but the czarina indignantly
refused to make money by hiring sol
diers to. him and George was com
pelled to hire 20,000 Russians.
Kussia has an area so great that
you could put the United States and
all our possessions in it twice over
and still leave a million square miles
to spare. It has a population of 170,
000,000 people and inexhaustible nat

Girl Found Badly
Beaten Up; Men She
Charged Not Held
"Babe" Griffin, 20 years of age, of
the Twentieth Century Maids Theat
rical company, which played last week
at a local theater, is under the care
of Dr. H. A. Waggener, who says her
body is a mass of bruises, and Wil
liam S. Dolan and C E. Peterson
found it necessary to appear in police
court Tuesday all as a result of what
friends of the principals in the affair
said was too much Mew Years.
"Babe" was found af Twentieth and
Missouri streets early Monday and
she immediately filed serious charges
against Dolan and Peterson. In po
lice court, however, on motion of the
county attorney's office. Judge Foster
dismissed the charges.
Peterson was arrested Monday and
when Dolan learned that he was
sought he appeared at the police sta
tion. He asserted that the girl s
story was untrue and detectives were
sent to investigate the affair. Infor
mation they obtained led to the re
lease of the two men.
First National Bank Will
Open New Home Monday
Forty-one tenants are already in
stalled in the first National Bank
building at Sixteenth and Farnam
streets, although the bank itself does
not move in until Monday, January
8. The hank officers will hold a re
ception Saturday afternoon.
One of the interesting events will
be the transfer of the money from its
old home to the big burglar-and-fire-'
proof vault. Bank officials do not di
