ORDER TO MOBILIZE
THE NAVAL RESERVE
Men of This istrDiot Ordered
to Assemble to Go on Active
Service in East.
TO i STAKT THIS WEEK
Orders were received Sunday after
noon by Lieutenant Waddell to
mobilize the naval fleet reserve in
this district, and as soon as possible
send the men to Philadelphia for ac
tive sea service.
About thirty men are affected by
the call They began to gather yes
terday afternoon. By this evening,
or Tuesday morning at the latest,
Lieutenant Waddell expects to have
them all assembled here, to go east.
A few of the naval reserves in this
district live in other towns and two
happened to be temporarily away at
some distance, but were reached by
When President Wilson signed the
war proclamation, the naval reserves
were supposed to be called out at
once, according to dispatches from
Washington. . However, the order
failed to reach Omaha by Saturday
night, so Lieutenant Waddell wired
an inquiry. The mobilization order
then came through, and it is supposed
that it was purposely held up before
that, in order that other reserves,
nearer the seaboard, could first be
called. i .
Order Comes by Telegraph.
Only ten-word telegram was nec
essary to cause the lieutenant here to
start the mobilization, all details hav
ing previously been arranged through
instructions from headquarters.
Under the present reserve mobilisa
tion order, the second and fourth
classes of the naval reserve are not
to be mobilized until later. The sec
ond class includes men who have had
sea-going experience, but never be
longed to the United States navy.
The fourth class includes the coast
defense reserves, comprising yeomen,
or clerks, and the yeomanettes.
Enlisted men of the navy, who are
now at home on extended furloughs,
are included in the present reserve
Conduct in Country
Washington, April 8. Gratifying
reports have been made to the De
partment of Justice on the behavior of
Germans and German-Americans, fol
lnwinir the declaration of a state of
war between the nations. While about
100 special arrests have been ordered
and others are expected, Attorney
General Gregory said tonight that so
far the situation is very encouraging.
The attorney general and Assistant
Attorney General Warren, In charge
of plot investigation, discussed with
President Wilson late this afternoon
the activities of Germans in the
I !nit4 Ctoja and in .fMtral mnA
South America. , ... ..... ,,
As a result of its request that gov
ernment employes in all parts of the
country watch carefully for the activi
ties of German agents, many report
are being investigated.
Although some reports have Indi
cated that German spies are employes
in the government service so far there
have been no arrests. Department of
Justice officials would not say tonight
whether any was expected.
Many protests have been made
against the provision of President
Wilson's war proclamation forbid
ding "enemy aliens" from living or
trespassing within ona half mile of
government arsenals, navy yards or
other government property, having to
do with national defense.' .
Permits may be issued for some ex
ceptions to the general rule.
To strengthen the position of the
government in hunting down and
prosecuting spies the espionage bills,
which failed of passage at the last
congress, will be pushed to early en
actment. Armed and Masked

SOUND WAR CALL
(ConUnoetJ Prow Part On.)
that is the kind that spells Washing
ton and Lincoln and Bunker Hill and
Lexington and the civil war. The
other kind of pacifism which exists
occasionally among honest-minded
people is partially weak-mindedness,
mainly cowardice. It is based upon
the belief that there is nothing better
than human life, and in that it de
grades and lowers human life.
"It was because Prussianism be
lieved that America had no ideals and
lived by gold alone and set life, mere
life, human functional, enjoyment,
above everything else, that they said,
'We mean to blow to death and to
destruction all ships, whether of
friendly neutrals or not on the high
seas to accomplish our purpose in de
stroying France and Great Britain, but
you might be inconvenient to us, per
haps, so if you went on a certain day
tricked out as a clown in a ship paint
ed like a barber's pole, you may go
once a week to England.' "
"Ah, my friends, there spoke the
militaristic Prussian autocracy, that
knows no policy but that of 'blood,
item and force,', that cannot appreci
ate the soul of an. honest, peaceful
folk striving for a better world and
for better things. Because, through
two and a half long years, America
had borne wfth almost everything in
the hope that peace would come from
this awful struggle, they assumed that
America was as devoid of soul as a
"I have had the pleasure and the
privilege of seeing two great people
upon the verge of war. It has been
said that every man has two coun
tries, France and his own, and the
great English philosopher, Mr. Lecky,
spoke of France as the one country
which had, through purely disinter
ested and unselfish motives, unsheath
ed the sword and unstintingly given
of its blood and of its treasure to aid
a small and obscure people struggling
3,000 miles away, because the princi
ples and ideals of that people so ap
pealed to the people of France that
they were willing to put their own
nation into bankruptcy and to go to
the extent of an awful war to aid
Washington and the English-speaking
colonists in striking off the fetters
of liberty imposed upon them by a
Hanoverian king, supported by Hes
sians and Indians.
"The president told us the other
day, in that splendid paper which will

An individual cannot live and be free

As a great philosopher said. 'If

Stimson Sounds Alarm.
Mr. Stimson, in his address, sounded
the gravest note of alarm. This must
be a war to the death, he declared.
"We have nothing against the Ger

sible autocracy over them we mean
business, he declared. '
'He spoke of documents in the War
department files at Washington
"which show that Germany, if . the
British fleet were removed and if it
had freedom of the seas, could land
387,000 men on our eastern shores
within sixteen days, using Only half
its merchant fleet. And in three
weeks more .it could more than dou

ment to delend our country.

Their -Various Stations.
MAY REQUIRE A MONTH
Beginning this week, another gen

Nebraska National Guard, under fed
eral authority, similar to the one held
last summer, before the guardsmen
went to the Mexican border.
As every company of the regiment
is busy on active guard duty in the
state, the muster will be held by com
panies, at their various stations. Thus
it is estimated by Colonel Baehr that
the muster may require perhaps a
month. The regular army officers,
who will conduce the muster, are
already here, ready to begin the task.
"Particularly care will be taken in
the muster," says Colonel Baehr, "to
