No Separate Peace The Reason Why. j
The resolution, already introduced in vsafts,
for an agreement by the United Statea with the
Allies to accept no peace that ia not satisfactory
to all of them is sure to occasion much discussion.
But let everyone remember the United States
ia in this war to light the battle of democracy
against autocracy and it is in it as one of l group
of nation fighting the same battle, none of whom
could hope alone to cope with the entrenched
enemy successfully. '
If the German war lords could fight these na
tions separately, the triumph of autocracy would
be foreordained. In a word, we must hark back
to our old motto, "In union there is strength,"
and the continued union of all t' e Allies, the
United States included, is essential to victory.
Remember above all that freedom for us to
make a separate peace carries with it freedom for
our Allies to, make a separate peace. A separate
peace by our Allies would mean Germany con
tinuing the war, separately, against the United
States left to fight alone.
'No separate peace," then, ia the only guaranty
we can have against a separate war, and our
only assurance that what we are fighting for will
be safeguarded in the final treaty terms.
Our Country Always in the Sight.
As a man and a moral leader we have had
the greatest admiration for the Rev. Mr.
Baltzly, but in setting himself up now to preach
resistance and obstruction to the prosecution of
the war, he is making a grjevous mistake.
Up toMhe moment congress passed the war
resolutions in response to the president's recom
mendation jt was the privilege of Mr. Baltzly,
as of everyone else feeling the same way, to
oppose our entrance into the conflict and to urge
his views on those charged with official responsi
bility., Up to that moment he could call the pro
posed war "Mr, Wilson's war," if he so desired.
But when congress acted, it could be no longer
"Mr. Wilson's war," for it had become the war
of thia nation the war of democracy against
autocracy, the war which would determine
whether our free republic ahould be an equal
among the nations of the world or take orders
from the German military machine.
Under such conditions, for a man of the in
telligence, education and standing of the Rev. Mr.
Baltzly to talk as he is talking tends to give re
spectability to ignorant or ill-intentioned efforts
to hamper the government in carrying out neces
sary war measures. Mr. Baltzly is doing exactly
what the sympathizers with Germany desire, nay
exactly what the German kaiser himself wanta
done over here. On this point there can be no
division of opinion among patriotic citizens.
"Our country!" said Decatur, "in her inter"
course with foreign nations, may the always be
in the right; but our country, right or wrong."
To that sentiment every loyal citizen must
If the plans for increasing and conserving the
food supply, promulgated by secretary Houston,
can be carried into successful execution, the chief
problem of the war will be happily solved. In
creasing the acreage of spring wheat and of corn,
in their respective belts, the planting of forage
croos in the south "and intense cultivation of a
normal cotton crop, the replanting of other crops
where winter wheat has been killed, the planting
of beans and potatoes and vegetables and the
larger raising of hogs and poultry would insure
an adequate food supply, provided labor tor or
dinary farming and for harvest time can be prop
erly mobilized, and provided some of the waste,
which Mr. Houston some time'ago estimated at
1700,000.000 a year, can be eliminated.
It will enuire much work on the part of fed
eral and state agricultural departments and much
aa-itation in all American communities to let these
plans carried out. Organized bodies ahould take
hold of the problems of selecting and distributing
the seed. Country banks, country merchants and
the commercial clubs of towns in agricultural see.
tions have a splendid opportunity to push, under
the pressure of war necessity, methods which
would greatly enrich their sections if employed
at any time. The greatest single industry in
America ia run on a hit and miss plan that ahovld
have been altered at least half a century ago. If
a system can be devised under which each farmer
will raise in the right way the things that are
needed and his products will reach the consumer
in C sure, expeditious and inexpensive manner,
the biggest economic problem of our time will
have been solved. It would be worth the cost of
the war to have auch a system permanently established.
- The mobilization of farm labor, for example
would be worth millions. If every idle youth
could and would get on a near-by farm, it would
mean much to the farms and to the youths. If

Garden Patch on the White House Lawn.
President Wilson announces his determination
to devqte a portion bf the White House lawn to
the establishment of a kitchen garden that he
may lead hi people by example as welt as by
precept In thus "doing hi bit" the president
may restore something of a vanished simplicity
to American life and in some measure recall the
flays of "Dolly" Madison, who wa equally at
home in the kitchen or the drawing room of the
presidential mansion. Everywhere ruler and
leader of th world are giving encouragement
to the people by personally observing all wise
apd needful regulations. Albert of Belgium Is in
the trenches; George of England is living like a
commoner; Wilhelm of Germany shares a sol.
dier'a fare; Poincare of France moves without
ostentation or display, and Wilson with a hoe
will be more of a true inspiration than Wilson
with a golf stick. Exercise in the truck patch
will be just a beneficial as on the Chevy Chase
linka and opportunity and provocation alike for
saying "tut-tut" or "fudge" will ever be present.
As Cincinnatus left hi plow to tave Rome,' let

Free Trad With Canada.
The government of the Dominion of Canada
ha suspended th dutyVn wheat imported from
the United States, which action automatically sus
pends the countervailing duty levied by the United
State. Thit is a neighborly move, although it
is based on mutual engagements in connection
with the war. To Americana it offers the pres
ent advantage of access to Canada's great wheat
crop, certain to be a factor in the economic situ
ation during the coming months.
Closer relations with Canada have long been
sought from Washington and overtures for a re.
adjustment of tariff schedules have several times
resulted in conferences without final action. A
reciprocal trade treaty failed in 1909 because of
the opposition of the. Canadian conservatives, who
overthrew Sir Wilfred Laurier, ablest of all the
Dominions premiers, on the issue. The manu
facturer of Ontario had the support of the wheat
raiser of the northwest in this campaign, but
conditlona have radically changed since then and
the wheat growers are now to gain at no expense
to the other industries.
World potiticiana look forward to the estab
lishment of a pure republic in place of the do
minion form of government for Canada at the
close of this war. The position of Our Lady of
the Snowa in the list of nations has long been
one of peculiar advantage, with the close friend
ship and co-operation of both the United States
and England, and its future ia bright. The closer
we get together the better it will be for the peo
ple on both sides of the longest boundary line
without a fort the world ever knew. '
To make sure against political diversion or
disturbance over in England, the regular seven
year Parliamentary etectiona are postponed. In
the United States there is no way of sidestepping
a presidential election, war or no war. Even Abra
ham Lincoln had to go before the people for a
second term right in the midst of the republic's

Department of Agriculture
Raising Bigger Crops
By Frederic J. Hatkin
Washinnton. D. C. April 16. On aeveral mil
lion acres of rich land the winter wheat crop
has been winter-killed. This land must be quickly
turned to other use. At a time like this all of it
must be used to best advantage. On some of
these a'- es the best plan will be to let the surviv
ing wh st come to harvest. On others, spring
wheat should be planted, or corn, or oats. By
prompt and intelligent action much of the wheat
shortage due to unfavorable winter weather can
be made up.
. The war emergency may be a good thing for
American agriculture. It is sure to bring the
Department of Agriculture into great prominence
and to give the nation a new confidence in scien
tific methods. The secretary of agriculture has
repeatedly said that if it were only possible to
get all American farmers to adopt the up-to-date
methods used by a smalt percentage of the more
progressive and far-seeing farmers, American
agriculture would be absolutely revolutionized.
Production would be enormously increased. If
scientific farming as worked out by experts comes
to spread more generally over the country under
the pressure of war necessity the nation will re
ceive on valuable compensation tor the price
An enormous amount of work of first impor
tance has already been done by the department
on methods for increasing crop yields. The work
in plant industry, as it is technically called, covers
the improving; of standard crop varieties, the fight
ing of plant diseases, the development of new
methods for the planting and care of cyps and
the introduction of new plants from all over the
world into the United States. It is worth noting
that a large part of the acreage where the wheat
was winter-killed will be replanted with crops
introduced and developed by the department.
Where the winter wheat land is to be replanted
In spring wheat, a large proportion of it will be
given over to the durum wheats. These are for
eign varieties, native to western Asia and south
eastern Russia. These wheats are probably the
most important plant introduction ever made into
the United States measured by results to date.
They have moved the wheat frontier westward
into the dry lands by 50,000,000 bushels a year.
Their story is a record of the overcoming of
prejudice by persistent work and demonstration.
When they were first produced in commercial
quantities fifteen years ago they aold at a price
of 10 or IS cents a bushel under the common
spring wheats., Farmers were practically penal
ized for raising them. Last year durum wheats
topped the market.
.Russian wheats had been raised here and there
in the spring-wheat belt for some years before
the department took hold of the problem. Their
drought-resisting qualities made them attractive
to farmers, but they were so exceedingly hard that
millers did not care to handle them, and discour
aged their use. Then , the experts got into the
game, explored Asia for the best varieties and had
them planted widely throueh the spring-wheat
belt At a score of uifierent experiment stations
they raised the durum wheats side by side with
common wheats, and in a large majority of cases
the durum varieties produced more bushels to
the acre. They were less liable to injury in a
drought and resisted the wheat rusts well. Once
all these qualities were made clear to the farmer;
he began to see light and planted durum wheats
in spite of the millers' objections. After a time
the miller were forced to give in, and withdrew
from the position that durum wheats were only
suitable for macaroni. They began to use durum
flour in the fancy blends, and today, in spite
of the fact that these new wheats are undeniably
difficult to grind, they are worth more money
than any of the old varieties, and they are being
raised at the rate of 50,000,000 busheW a year.
Much of the land where the wheat was win
ter-killed will be replanted in corn. Corn is a
crop that can be used either for human or animal
food, and an increased use of cornmeal in the
diet of the nation is one of the probabilities for
the next year. As one expert puts it, corn will
be planted on any of the wheat land that is safe
for corn-raising. The area of safety for corn
has been considerably increased by work of the
department. The latest achievement in this line
i the development of a "frost-proof corn," which
promises to extend it still further in the near
No less important than the increase of produc
tion is the fight against the plant diseases which
are continually threatening to eat the increase up.
Different plant diseases are responsible for annual
losses amounting to $325,000,000 a year. But
steady progress is being made against the wheat
rusts and the potato blights and the rest of them.
for immediate relief, the experta woric out seed
dips, such as are now being advocated for use
on seed potatoes, a crop where the loss amounted
to $112,000,000 through disease. On a broader
scale the plan is to produce varieties of fruits and
grains and vegetables which are immune from
Most of our plant diseases are imported. The
citrus canker came from Japan, and the white pine
blister, which is threatening our white pine for
ests, came .from Europe. Moreover, in Europe
and Asia they still boast a variety of plant
diseases which so far have not appeared in Amer
ica. Hence the extensive plant quarantine legis
lation enforced by the Department of Agricul
ture, which has warded off many foreign pests.
auch aa the pink cotton boil-weevtl, which would
threaten our agriculture.
ihe different problems of what to plant and
how to assure the ;rgest crop from the acreage
planted are not a't woiW out yet, but better
methods have been worked out than many of the
tarmers are usinr,. ihe department is ready to
teach any man v ith a farm how to get the most
out of it. If the war will get American agriculture
more solidly into line on scientific methods it will
do one good thing for the country.

Erasmus M. Weaver. .
Major General Erasmus M. Weaver, chief f
coast artillery, is a native of Indiana and a grad
uate of West Point in the class of 1875. His en
tire service was in the artillery arm until the
spring of 1908, when he was placed at the head of
the militia division at the War department. Dur
ing his early career he served as professor of
military science nd tactics at Western Reserve
university and in the same capacity at the South
Carolina Military academy. Kor some time also
he was an instructor at West Point. In the war
with Spain he served as lieutenant colonel of the
Fifth Massachusetts volunteers. For several
years General . , eaver devoted himself to a study
of militia affairs, and it is generally conceded that
he is one of the best informed men in the country
on all questions affecting the organized militia.
He has been a member of the general staff since

war born in Arkansas and graduated at West
Point at the head of the class in 1903. Joining
the engineer corps, he went to the Philippines
and served there with credit. During the war be
tween Japan and Russia he served as one of the
American military observers. Since 1913 he has
been on duty with the general staff. Major Mac
Arthur is regarded as one of th ablest writers
on the technique of war that the United States
army has recently produced. He was appointed
military censor at the time of the Mexican border
troubles and has been retained to act in a similar

Another Prophetic Vision.
Omaha, April 16. To tha Editor
of The Bee: In your paper ot the 9th
Instant appeared an article giving
full description of strange signs In
the heavens seen by Lorenzo D. Fox,
with four companions in 1845; and
by R.AV. Bonman in 1901..
In both Intttancea the flags were
prominent features. The first to be
seen included the miraculous writing
of the figures 1861; the second showed
the date 1918. with Old Glory poised
high in the center of other national
banners.. History haa registered well
the prefigured events of the '80s, be
ginning with the date engraved in the
itlty. But this nation, that knows not
the consuming fire of hate, even after
witnessing and feeling the more than
savage, yea brutal strokes of fleeting
force, is calmly putting on strength
and fearlessly griding up its loins to
meet the events prefigured for the
Heading of tnose experiences turned
my thought to a vivid similar scene
Impressed upon my consciousness. It
was a most awe-inspiring sight. My
husband and I-were sitting by an
open south window one quiet night in
July, 1314, between the hours of 9 and
10 o'clock; the bright rays of a full
moon streamed into the room, flooding
It with a mellow light. By chance we
looked up at the heavens and we
were both awed for a time into silent
astonishment at the sight of a gi
gantic crora in the sontheastern sky,
near the zenith, above and close to
the moon. . . ,
There was not a cloud to be seen,
just the magnificent white .cross and
the moon against the blue of infinite
space. The starry region above
seemed to lessen its "glow in adora
tion of the handiwork below.
We marveled and gazed upon it at
least fifteen minutes, when It faded
slowly from our view. Such an un
speakable. Joyous feeling possessed me
when this, the greatest of all paint
ings, was added to my mental gallery,
that I went direct to the Artist of
Artists and asked the meaning of the
new picture, and to my inner ear, as
clearly as the vision had appeared to
my physical eye, the answer came:
"A New Era."
It was such an awakening and unheard-of
experience, at least to the
eVe, that I could not bring myself to
speak of It to anyone outside of the
home, or to write it up for publica
tion, until seeing the article men
tioned. I searched the papers and
magazines for months afterward,
hoping to See it d .scribed by some
one more able than I that I might
We both continued to be vigilant
many evenings following, anxious to
see the huge cross again, for it
seemed too prominently formed in its
position not to be seen every night.
These signs written in the heavens,
to the receptive thought", have a close
connection. Since the great nations of
the earth have for centuries achieved
their aims under the inspirational in
fluence of these two emblems, the
Cross and the Flag.
