FEBRUARY CIRCULATION 54,592 Daily Sunday, 50,466 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. Arenas (MIMM lor the nonUa icburllMd end own to W Aiuna. Clrcuiuloa aUaetst.

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. 1 When you go into the garden game, make a contract with yourself to see it through; for the returns come only at the end of the season, and stopping half way forfeits all that has been put in. With four husky youngsters In' the parental nursery, Omaha'a joy fairly bubbles. Complete happiness is hardly possible white the elder sister, Council Bluffs, is constitutionally barred from the big tent. Weekly bulletins of the tonnage sent to the bottom by submarines would be much more In structive if they carried foot notes showing wherein ruthlessness advanced victory by a frao tion of an inch. America's mission of mercy in Berlin Is ended. Conditions made further service impossible. The task falls to hands yet neutral, which will, it Is hoped, maintain the semblance of mercy amid the maddened ravages of war. Tha river and harhnr nrrk errahbers are said to be massing for another drive across the trenches when congress reconvenes.

American motor boats have not quite reached a speed of a mile a minute, but have come near enougn to DC in me express train class iur swiii ness. This fact, interesting and gratifying before, has become highly important. It is evident that the problem of wanton submarine attack must be met by multiplying light, well-armed boats that are also extremely fast Large and costly thips cannot be matched against undersea craft oper ated as unrestricted assassins.. Ordinary armed convoys have sometimes failed to give security against such' sudden, stealthy attacks from a , chiefly invisible quarter. Armed transports must ' 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 Rapid fire gun are effective against them. Rifles are made that carry two miles. A heavy bullet would perforate a submarine, and more . than anything else afloat it must be careful to maintain a nice balance of wind and water. Own ers of private yachts are offering their facilities to the government The serpents of the sea will not long have a greater immunity than that of other members of the venomous reptile tribe. A submarine chaser can be built in sixty days. If constructed in lake shipyards they can get to the sea by existing channels. An emergency exists. .American energy nas not nitncrto laitcn snuri. Undersea boats have stolen a march on navies, tut the menace will be overcome promptly and Failure of Ruthlessness at Sea. Less than a Week remains of the sixty clays 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 progressed. 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." "Pastor North Presbyteran church. . Stop Thi Halr-Splittlng. 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 accomplished. It is hoped the federal government will take prompt action against the threats of Philadet phians to stage a talking match for a year throughout the country. Protecting the rights of 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.

M. V. Higbee "My First Sermon "It pleated the janitor, though the professor jumped on it." ft 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 countries. 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.

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." NEBRASKA. Thre Is a land to all ao fair. None other can with It compare.

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. ONCE A NURSE. 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. trill Guard Power Plants. Albany, N. T., March IS.
