Call for Volunteer.
The order by the president that the enlisted
strength of the nevy be raised to the limit allowed
by law ii tantamount to t call or volunteer!. It
is the most impressive sign of the ominous event
whose shadow is thus thrown across the path of
the nation. Wisdom and prudence alike require
that all be set in readiness against that time when
action must be taken. This explains the order
from the president, which is novel only in that
the first call for men comes from the navy instead
of the army. In this way emphasis is given to
the defensive character of the movement. Our
navy is our first line of defense, and will be first
into action, if any be taken. Therefore, as set
out by Secretary Daniels in his telegram to The
Bee, it is imperative that the navy be prepared
to the utmost to meet any emergency. This
means that the ships must be fully manned, that
all naval stations be properly furnished with men
needed for prompt service, and so equipped that
nothing will be left to fortune. The appeal is
made on patriotic grounds, and certainly will be
given the response it deserves.

Danger Line in the Legislature.
Just now is the critical time in the legislature.
The end of the session is near at hand, and mem
bers are already chafing under the restraint of the
rules and anxious to clean up their work and get
away from the capital. Sifting committees are in
charge of the files, and the ways are still clogged
by a mass of bills. Here is where the danger
lurks. Unless the utmost care is exercised, good
measures may be lost in the "jam," and worthless
or bad bills be slipped through in the rush of the
last days. The dosing hours of the session are
the harvest time for the tricksters, who rely on
getting in their fine work while the honest mem
bers are busy with the piled-up work. Many
laws that should be passed are yet between the
two houses, and some have not yet been brought
forward by the sifting committee. On the other
hand, a number of sinister measures are ready
to be "put over" at the first opportunity. This
all means that members who sincerely want to
serve Nebraska must be awake and exercise un
wonted vigilance during the next few days.

has become highly important. It is evident that
the problem of wanton submarine attack must be
met by multiplying light, well-armed boats that

ated as unrestricted assassins.. Ordinary armed
convoys have sometimes failed to give security
against such' sudden, stealthy attacks from a

' be nuick in the use of their guns if provided fore
and aft or any other point of vantage. But sub
marines cannot run faster than fifteen knots on
the surface and ten knots under water. Once they
are located, swift, armed motor boats at band
' could attack them on sight and could be sum
moned by wireless to the neighborhood to patrol
for their reappearance on the surface. They can
not remain submerged indefinitely, nor are they
ihle to descend to the bottom unless in compara
tively shallow water. They lurk near lanes of
:ravel and harbor routes. A swarm of light fight
ing craft around their haunts will keep them busy
defensively. t

In which the Germans were to force Great Britain
to terms by means of unrestricted U-boat opera
tions. Net results so far noted Include the
wanton destruction of a large amount of property
belonging to neutral nations, the sacrifice of a
number of lives of neutral noncombattants, and
the arrayal against-Germany of nations that had
sincerely tried to remain neutral and keep on
friendly terms with the central powers of Europe
as with the rest of the world. Even China has
dismissed the kaiser's diplomatic representative,
severing relations 'with Germany as the outcome
of the move. England has not been starved into
submission, nor has the stress of the campaign so
far as can be told on this side produced any
marked effect on the populace. If the reports of
England's food supply sent out from Berlin in
January were believed by the authorities there, it
is now apparent the intelligence bureau of the
empire has slipped a cog, and no longer functions
as accurately as it did earlier in the war. The
big fact, however, is that the terror at sea did not
produce the result aimed at; neutral commerce
was not abandoned, England was not blockaded,
while Germany sacrificed friends that might have
been useful. From any point of view, the subma
rine campaign seem a failure, so far as it has
Mv first sermon was preached in the chapel
of McCormick Theological seminary, Chicago, be
fore fortv-nine of my classmates and Dr. Herrick
Johnson, our professor of preaching, or, as it is
technically canea, proiessor ot nomiicuca. ui.
Johnson's pupils never forget his definition of
a sermon. Any one of the many hundred Pres
byterian ministers who come by way of the emi
nent professor's class room would tell you that "a
sermon is a formal religious discourse founded
upon the wcrd of God and designed to save men.
There were just fifty in the class of 1898, and
each prepared and preached a sermon during his
senior year. Three preached each Tuesday. The
text for the sermon had been assigned a month
in advance. My text was Luke 24:38-43, and I
was to dwell especially on the forty-first verse:
"And while they yet believed not for joy, and
wondered, He said unto them, Have ye here any
meat?" I chose as my theme, "Too Good to Be
True." I did not preserve my outline or sermon
and do not remember much about tne sermon
itself. We were each expected to occupy twelve
minutes. I was the third preacher and exceeded
my time by exactly one-half minute. The speaker
Delore me occupied one minute more man De
longed to him and the first held on for thirteen
and a half minutes.
Ordinarily these chapel sermons brought an
avalanche of criticism, and I did not wholly
escape, but the good professor's digestion seemed
out of order on this fateful day and he had been
greatly annoyed by our disposition to be lengthy.
He therefore took almost the whole time given
for criticism by classmates and professor in
berating us for our long sermons. I have been
exceedingly sensitive ever since to the word or
look which suggests that my sermon is too long.
There was consolation waiting for me in the
vestibule. John, the janitor, had been listening
at the door. He had heard both sermon and
criticism. John was a man who had favorites
among the boys. I was one of his favorites. He
turned and walked with me down the hallway
and said, "That professor couldn't find no fault
with that sermon itself, so he just jumped on you
for taking an extra half minute, and that's the
way he always does. When he gets a realty good
sermon he raves about something that don t
amount to nothing."

Disgraceful conditions that have arisen under
the divided responsibility for the care of indigent
persons and persons suffering from contagious
diseases are emphasized by the renewal of the
wrangle between the city and county authorities.
Each side admits that something should be done
for the suffering, but each Insist it is the other's
duty to look after the afflicted. The case is not
a new one here, for the dispute has gone on for
years and with no apparent approach to a settle
ment. Omaha and Douglas county can well af
ford to look after the unfortunate, and it may be
accepted that the taxpayers are willing that liberal
provision be made for the care of those who can
not care for themselves. What really is needed
is an end to the splitting of hairs over which ac
count is to be charged with the expense. The
authorities ought to reach a working agreement
and stick to it, this to hold until such time as
better arrangements can be made for giving sick
and needy the care demanded.
Unhorsing the Brigadiers.
One of the immediate effects of the assembling,
of the new congress will be unhorsing of the
southern oligarchy that ha controlled the course
of national legislation during the last four years.
When the democrats came into full power in the
nation, the committees of the house were entirely
reorganised, and a tried and trusted southern
democrat was placed at the head of each im
portant committee, with the single exception of
apropriations, which went to Fitzgerald of New
York. Perhaps the greatest reproach to the Wil-
son administration In its first term was the abso
lute domination of the affairs of the nation by the
south. Little pretense was made to avoid sec
tional prejudice or interest in considering pro.
posed legislation, but everything was shaped with
reference to how it would affect Dixieland. The
effect of this policy is to be noted in all the demo
crats have done for four years. A revolt of north
em democrats is now reported, and the coming
together of the house is to be made the occasion
of a redistribution of chairmanships, so that the
organization will be representative and not sec
tional, and that the people of the north and west
may have something to say about the framing
of national laws. This change may be brought
about only over the objections of the "brigadiers,'
but the good of the country requires that it be
It is hoped the federal government will take
prompt action against the threats of Philadet
phians to stage a talking match for a year

Americans on the seas is no more urgent than
protecting Americans on land against ruthless
ness. The least the government can do is to con
fine the windjammers to Independence Square or
the city hall.

Will Jerusalem Fall?
-Bolton Transcript -
It begins to look now as though the British
forces which are invading Turkey in Asia from
the direction of the Tigris valley would compel
the evacuation of Jerusalem before the little army
from the Sinai rjeninsula can set there. Deserts
and mountains fight against the army in southern
Syria; but if General Maude once gets astride
of the line from Mosul to Aleppo and thither he
is rapidly moving the lurks must evacuate the
whole of Syria. And with this movement Jeru
salem must fall without the profanation of the
holy city by a single bombshell. Nor can we
suppose that the Turks themselves would dam
age the holy places in resentment, for in spite
of all their wars and oppressions their veneration
for the shrines of Jesus is only less profound
than that of the Christians.
Give the devil his due; the wardenship of the
Turks in Terusalem has not been essentially un
worthy. Probably it has been better than that
which any single one of the Christian sects
'would have supplied, at least in the times that
have passed. The Turkish soldier on his pedestal
in the Christian church, keeping with bayonet
and with ball cartridge his guard over the war
ring Christian sects each ready at any moment
to strangle the other, is typical of the situation
in all the holy land. Creeks, Latins, Armenians,
Copts and representatives of the rest of the forty
three Christian sects who are permitted to keep
each its separate light burning in the Church of
the Holy Sepulcher, are always ready to fly at
one another's throats, and have been restrained
only by the police power of the Turk. Edward
i-car, writing to .nicucsicr rurtcatuc irum ciu
salem. described the situation most graphically
when he sooke of the Christians in the holy city
as "scandalizing the whole community with their
monstrous quarrels; their consuls and bishops
regarding each other with hatred and eacn acting
to each other with open contempt and malignity,
while every portion of their resident fellow-re-
ligiomsts take one or the other side. And tnis
forsooth at a place of example for Turks nad
Jews. If I wished to prevent Turk, Hebrew or
heathen from turning Christian, I would send him
straight to Jerusalem. While Jerusalem is what
it is by and through the Christians' dogma and
theology, so long must the religion of Christ be,
and mostly justly, the object of deep hatred and
disgust to the Moslem, or destestation and derision
to the Jew." Matters have changed somewhat
since Lear wrote these words in 1858, but the
mutual hostility survives. We may well hope
that the British, as standing quite outside the
great central rift of Christianity, the division be
tween the eastern and tne western cnurcnes,
would be able to maintain a Christian decorum
at Jerusalem; but what about the situation when
the French, the historic champions of the Latin
church in the east, come to the authority in Pales
tine which the understanding among the entente
allies has allotted to them? There may be some
uneasiness on this head in the orthodox
However, it is impossible not to share with Mr.
Ralph Adams Cram his enthusiasm over the pros
pective restoration of the holy city to the banner
of the cross after 673 years of dominance by the
Mohammedan lurks.

Storyette of the Day.
In a church in Ohio the minister
gave out the hymn, "I Love to Steal
Away," etc. The regular leader of the
choir being absent, the duty devolved
upon a young fellow of a timid nature.
He commenced, "I love to steal," and
then broke down. Raising his voice
a little higher, he then sang, "I love
to steal." At length, after a desperate
cough, he made a final demonstration,
and roared out, "I love to steal."
The effort was too much. Every
one but the parson was laughing. He
rose, and with the utmost gravity,
said:: "Seeing our brother's propen
sities, let us pray."

Why Norses Are So Scarce.
Omaha, March 26. To the Editor
of The Bee: Scarcity of nurses is due
to a number ot things, first, the hos
pitals do not pay the girls enough
while In training. I think 110 a month
Is the most any hospital In Omaha
pays. And after a girls' laundry, books
and other Incidentals, not to mention
clothing, I don't believe there is any
left out of flO. They are too strict
with the rules is a second thing to think
about Most of them work ten hours
a day and work hard. And third,
three years Is a long time to put In liv
ing that sort of life. No one but a
good, noble young girl, can do, her
duty and stay that long. Not very en
ticing is It? Twenty-live dollars a
month Is not too much.
Losses by Foreign Trade.
Omaha, March 21. To the Editor
of The Bee: Within the last few
days a statement ot the decrease of
trade with European countries in the
month of February has been Issued
by the Department of Commerce. The
decrease of exports Is put at about
1190,000 and of Imports about
140,000. This was represented by
the newspapers in large headlines as
a loss to this country of about $230,
000 in one month and chargeable
to the action of the German subma
rine warships.
Aside from the question of right or
wrong of submarine warfare, there is
something In this connection that
should be corrected immediately. The
truth Is that our foreign trade passed
the limit of fcroflt to the people of
this country, as a whole, long ago,
and the majority have been suffering
seriously from It for more than a year,
while a minority have been gaining at
a loss to their fellow countrymen
through a great Increase In the cost
of living. It has been proposed seri
ously in congress to spend about $400,-
000 to investigate tne nign cost or nv
Inp;, although it is obvious that the
chief factor of this trouble Is the un
precedented drain of foreign com
merce. Perhaps we shall have to in
vestigate the sanity or Insanity of con
gress. It does seem to be true that
a group of the devotees of Mammon
have been able to hypnotize the peo
ple of this country and put rings In
their noses. Some financiers and
some persons who have had products
of various kinds to sen to ioreignern
have gained so much that the higher
cost of living has not troubled them.
But while people of these classes are
praising patriotism let us remind them
that true Datrlotism would not allow
the glitter of foreign gold to lead a
person to aisregara tne rignts ana in
terests of citizens of his own country.
To say now that the embargo ques
tion Is one of neutrality or unneu
tralitv Is to utter an absurdity. Self-
protection has nothing to do with the
question ot neutrality. Perhaps it is
a fair estimate that the people are los
ing $10,000,000 a day by the foreign
drain. BEKIAM uuuhkain.
