Punishing The Newspapers

Renresentatlve Sloan of Nebraska, a member
of the ways and meant committee, used the right
word when, in announcing his opposition to that

lines, he said he would not support a punitive
expedition against these publications."

In spite of all that is said of censorships rea
sonable and unreasonable, thia war cannot be car
ried on without newspapers. Intelligent officials
at Washington recognize the fact and have no
hesitation in summoning to their assistance a
; power wliich never yet has failed of generous re
sponse. Why should anybody in the departments
or in congress be allowed maliciously and venge

armies, navies and loans will be sought in vain?
. Partisanship No Cover.
We gladly give apace on this page to a letter
from Surveyor of Customs C. W. McCune, taking
issue with a reference in The Bee to Senator
Hitchcock being listed as "not voting" on the
test for a conscripted instead of a volunteer army
for this war.
We admire Mr. McCune's personal loyalty and
devotion to the senator, on whose'newspaper he
was employed for many yearsjnd to whose favor
he owea his present official position ; but Mr. Mc
Cune's partisan zeal must not be allowed to dis
tort the facts. Whatever his other activities, the
conclusive proof that the senator "ducked" on
conscription we herewith present in a facsimile
of the Congressional Record containing the tell
tale roll call. The citations Mr. McCune makes
only eccentuate the exhibit, for the identical issue
of the Congressional Record shows that Senator
Hitchcock answered to his name on that self
same day Both before and after the vote on con
scription and surely could also have voted on that
most vital amendment of all had he wished to.
Mr. McCune reminds us that Senator Hitch
cock voted on the final passage "in favdr of the
army bill providing for concription."And so he
did, as did all of the senators who previously
voted against conscription, except eight but if
enough of his colleagues had been listed along
with Senator Hitchcock as "not voting" there
would have been no conscription clause in the
bill. As everyone knows, wily lawmakers often
vote one way or fail to vote when a bill is in
the making, and then, vote for the bill at the fin
ish in order to claim credit from both sides. So
much for the senator's record on conscription.
At to securing a training camp for Omaha,
The Bee's editorial columns speak for themselves
as a persistent champion of 'Omaha's claim's, not
based on politics, but upon its own superior acces
sibility and facilities for assembling and taking
care of new recruits. We agree that this is no
time to "play partisanship," but we also object
strenuously to partisanship guiding the action of
the administration contrary to the merits of the
question in this or any other matter connected
with the war. If the president, let it be remem
bered finally, had to depend aolely upon demo
cratic support in and out of congress he would
indeed be in a sorry plight, and it ill-behooves
one of his appointees to raise the question of
partisanship in the face of Mr. Wilson's own
acknowledgements of patriotic assistance from
representatives of opposing parties. '
Result of the Conservation Congress.
The report of the policy committee of the
conservation congress, just over, is commended
to the. careful consideration of all, because it
contains nothing but what will bring good results
if applied. The Bee takes some satisfaction in
the reflection that the report might have been
compiled from our columns, for it is the doctrine
thia paper has preached in 'general and in par
ticular for years. Especially does this apply to
the paragraphs that deal with food production and
preservation. ' If the admonition of the committee
be heeded by our producer, no matter' in what
line they may direct their energy, increased yields
will bring them added profits. This is good for
peace time as well as for war time. It may have
required the pressure of a great crisis to bring
this home directly to those who are most directly
concerned, but if they can accommodate their
energies to the program outlined they will he
not only vindicating their intelligence, but will
be serving mankind inhe most practical way pos
sible. Read and heed the policy outlined by the
. Let Each Show Hi Hand.
One unpleasant fact brought outy (he food
congress in Omaha, and one that is present else
where as in Nebraska, is the apparent suspicion
of all the groups that one or another is somehow
to gain an advantage over the others from the
effort to organize for the war. This feeling is
most unfortunate. No matter how class divisions
came to exist, the time is come in America to
throw down all dividing lines, cut out all petty
jealousies and work together as one united peo
plefor each to show his hand and feel he is
working for all instead of for himself.
It is a nation that must be trained, said the
president, and the first step in this great job must
be to establish mutual confidence and respect.
This only can be done by each division, jroup or
das pledging it members and its' ability to the
common whole. Approach .byvdegrees, holding
back to see what the other fellow is going to do,
keeping a.watchful eye on him to see he doesn't
get more than his share of something, will not
help reach the goal. . All must go forward at once
and together. Keep step and the victory is wort,
not only for the present, but for generations. It
doesn't so much matter about the leaders; they
will appear, just as they always have appeared in
America. It it the marchers who count most now.
A new America is to come out of the present
trial an America in which present grievances will
be lost to sight because of the better understand
ing between all its citizens. The surest way to
achieve this glorious end Is to get together in
the equally glorious present. '
- Soaring Price of 8tel.
The great advance, on the atock market of
shares in United State Steel is reminder that
food and- clothing are not the only commodities
that have gone bounding to the limit in price.
Steel is the basis of industry these days, and any
enterprise must begin its calculations on cost by
finding out what it must pay for ateet. The sell
ing price of steel has(been pushed ahead con
tinually for the last two yeara and the net profits
are correspondingly increased. Those of the
United States Sleel concern are set down as more
than $13 per ton greater for 1916 than in 1915 and
the advance' in price for the current year is ex
pected to show a similar increase at least. It
business has enormously increased and its orders
booked are equal to its full capacity, for produc
tion, for many months. If the government is to
regulate supply and demand in foodstuffs and to
check possible extortion in that direction, to com
pel fuel magnatea to be reasonable in their de
mands, to fix transportation rates and to generally
aupervise other branches of industry and com
merce, it ahould include iteel in Its supervisory
operations. It will not be right nor just for the
government to discriminate when it comes to
dealing with the necessities of life, and ateet is
as vital to modern society as bread.

not promptly advised through their own informa

NOT TOT! NO .
Keeping Industrial Peace
, By Frederic J. Haskin ,
Washington, May 23. No one will deny that
for some time to come America can get all the
fighting it wants made in Germany. It is highly
important that we have peaceful and . whole
hearted co-operation within our own boundaries.
One of the most delicate tasks that the nation
faces in the coming months is that of keeping in
dustrial peace at home, maintaining friendly rela
tions between capital and labor. ' -
Labor troubles sap the vitality of a fighting
nation at its industrial roots. Yet no nation at
war has escaped them. England has had strike
after atrike, aonfetimes when the, products of the
idle factories were cryingly needed at the front.
It has just seen the last of a munition makers'
strike, and a bus drivers' strike that kept the mu
nition workers from reaching their jobs. Ger
many, in spite of iron-clad"discipline and the tra
ditional' respect of its people for authority, has
just gotten done with munition makers' strikes
that even the name of Hindenburg could not put
down. There is no reason jo believe that we shall
be lucky enough to escape all labor disturbances,
and much of the machinery for adjusting them is
oiled and ready for business-
There are two official agencies in the United.
States for ther settlement of labor disputes.
Neither of them in the final analysis has any real
power power, that is, to enforce a settlement
but both have proven effective. The board of me
diation and conciliation is empowered to step in
and mediate and conciliate in any labor trouble
affecting the interstate service of the railroads.
The board has jurisdiction of-this sort over train
men and telegraphers actually engaged in the
operation of trains. The only official conciliator
and mediator in trouble affecting other immensely
important factories and industries of the nation
is the Department of Labor. The- department has
quite a remarkable record for settling disputes be
tween labor and capital, although it Qas no power
whatever to force a settlement and can only use
its offices to bring about a better understanding.
The officials of the department look forward
to doing a brick business in the conciliation line
for the next few months. There is undeniably
considerable unrest in the relations between capi
tal and labor in the United States today. The
department is confident, however, that no trouble
serious enough to threaten the national interest
will arise, if only because both sides have shown
themselves alive to their patriotic duty in war
None the less, the conciliators of the depart
ment are being kept busy. They have smoothed
out troubles in the coal fields, in one of Jhe big
gest munition plants in the country, in a plant that
is delivering locomotives on contract to Russia,
on one of the most important munition-carrying
railroads, in a manufactory of electrical supplies
that was making deliveries to the navy, all in the
last few weeks. Even a- threatened strike in a
New Jersey lace-making town was tied up with
the war situation because the plants in question
were working on a contract to supply the United
States army with mosquito retting.
The Council of National Defense plans to supr
plement the present machinery for conciliation
with twenty-two special subcommittees for me
diation and conciliation, responsible to Secretary
of Labor Wilson.
It is interesting to note that the experts regard
the present tendency to unrest in labor as a pat
ural result of conditions, and not indicative of any
spirit that argues a desire to obstruct at a criti
cal time. Conditions are abnormal and almost
There has been a steady pressure from.every
side to increase the output, to make every ma
chine and every man turn out the maximum
amount Mills are clamoring for raw material,
orders go begging and those who place the Or
ders shout for speedy delivery. It works down
at last to a continual appeal to the workman to
speed up his output, until, as one official of the
department puts it, the workman acquires a
"feather-edge." He gets nervous and irritable.
It ia well enough for the economist to treat of
labor as a commodity, but labor as a matter of
fact is a mass of humanity with nerves and tem
peraments. The workman goes ten hours at top
speed and plods home to find that prices have gone
up until his high wages begin to look inadequte,
His family call for -more money and his fore
man calls for more speed. Finally he throws up
hit hands and says: "By heck, they'll haVe to raise
my wagea and be content with my present output,
or I'll strike."
The expert analysis of the situation shows that
what restlessness exists is due to no very dis
quieting causes. It seem to be largely the reac
tion from high tension and forced draught,
coupled with labor icarcity with it continual
temptation to move, and the high cost of living.
All these problems are serious, but they open up
no such grave vista aa would be indicated by a
deep hostility between the forces in question.
x The department has no authority to arbitrate,
to judge or to enforce its own opinions bf the
merits of the case.' In fact, it carefully refrains
from having any opinions. It is authorized to
conciliate and mediate and it waits for an invita
tion before even going that far. Sometimes the
employer invites the department to (tackle the
problem, sometimes it is the men, and of late the
Council of National Defense has been keeping a
sharp eye out for labor troubles, nd, speaking
for the public, has called otv the department to
try and find a solution. The official conciliators
then try 'to get the disputing parties together on
some common ground. They take it for granted
that both sides want an agreement and they try
to rind a basis. If conciliation fails they may
resort to mediation, but if either party insists
on fighting it out the department cannot stop
them. So far, however, efforts at .conciliation
have been remarkably successful. ,
It is hoped that they will continue so. War
calls for stern measures in the last necessity, and
if an industry vital to the nation were crippled by
disputes the government would have to create
machinery for dealing with the situation. But
conciliation, the appeal to the reason and the
patriotism of both parties, is the truly democratic
method, and if the country can make it serve
throughout the war the feat will be a vindication
of the efficiency of democracy. N
HIGH MARK IN RECRUITING SCORE.
Nearly every able-bodied man in the town of
Hurst, III., lined up at the recruiting office and
offered to do his bit. Even a man with a wooden
leg hopped in, eager an) ready to tackle a scrap
ping job. Twenty-one were accepted and nearly
as many rejected for various imperfections in phy
sique. The proportion figures 100 peri cent of
fighting material and puts Hurst at the too of the
patriotic score board in Illinois. , ' .

As to Sermtor Hitchcock "Not Voting."
9maha, May 24. To the Editor of
The Bee: In the issue of your paper
of May 22 appeared an editorial para
graph stating that Senator Hitchcock
did not vote on the army conscription
hill. The intent of the paragraph is
evidently to create the impression that
the distinguished senator from Ne
braska is opposed to conscription.
But the record shows to the contrary.
The Congressional Record of April
17, page 738, shows that Senator
Hitchcock voted in favor of the issue
of war bonds. In fact he had charge
of this bill for the administration.
The Congressional Record of April
28, Page 1383, shows that Senator,
Hitohcock spoke in favor of conscrip
tion, and that his amendment rais
ing the minimum age limit from 19 to
21 years was adopted by the senate.
TJie Congressional Record of April
28, page 1420, shows that Senator
Hitchcock voted in favor of the army
bill providing for conscription.
Senator Hitchcock was ,w member
'of the conference committee appointed j
to harmonize theudifferences between j
the senate and house over the army
bill which carries the provision fori
conscription. , ,
A few days ago I noticed .an edi- j
torial comment in your paper com-
plaining that many of the arm jr train-1
ing camps were to be located in states'
that are democratic, Inasmuch as an I
effort is being made to have one of
the cantonments located near Omaha, ;
are you opposed to this movement be-;
cause Nebraska voted for Wilson, or !
would you prefer to have the training
camp located in Iowa because it was
in the republican column in 1516?
This is a very poor time to play par
tisanship. C. W. M'CUNE.

Hitchcock on conscription is shown by

Degrees of Patriotic Incentive.
Omaha, May 23. To the Editor of
The Bee: An astonishing narrowness
is revealed by some persons in their
discussions of the present wan. Some
feel that they could not fight a foreign
foe because they do not believe in war,
but they could become patriotic if
they could shed blood in a war against
capitalism among the citizens of their
own country. They would not wish to
defend their country against the ruth
less aggressions of a, foreign foe, but
would be glad to battle neighbor
against neighbor in their-own country.
Shame on thejn forever. Some can't
feel patriotic while prices are so high
or the war tax is not placed right or
somebody somewhere is making some
money. Then they say the allies got
so much credit from us we must now
join them to save it. Others say Ger
many had a right to kick us in the
hack because the allies were kicking
Germany in the stomach.
When one uses such arguments Ji?
displays a narrowness which is caused
possibly by his intense selfishness or
bis ignorance of the facts. They ren
der snap judgment. At any rate they
do not seem to see farther than local
affairs and do not understand the crit
ical international situation which is
threatening the welfare of their na
tion and themselves. We must
help crush German militarism, give
her people a republic and make the
world safe for democracy.
