The great battle between the United States

given the Berger-I-a Follette disloyal com
bination. The issue is plain between American
ism and the kaiser, and the country yet has con
fidence in Wisconsin.
What is a Nonpartisan?
Since we in Omaha are approaching another
to-called nonpartisan election, the answer to this
question by the editor of the Portland Orego
aian should be in point to anticipate the wonder
ment of some of our own querulous readers:
It may be taken for granted that the inquirer
recognizes that word meanings are not always
governed by the dictionary. That erudite work
says that a nonpartisan is one not controlled
by parties or party spirit or party interests.
Alas, dictionaries were written by old fogies.
There is in Oregon a newly-formed ortrani-
zation which has outlined a definite political
program, intends to endorse candidates for
office and will otherwise function as a politi
cal party. Yet it calls itself nonpartisan.
When one applies the archaic dictionary defi
nition to a nonpartisan party it seems almost
as impossible as a meatless pork roast or a
paneless window pane or a toothless set of
false teeth. Yet we have a nonpartisan party
in. our midst. . : ,
We once thought a nonpartisan was always
a camouflaged democrat.
Again, it appeared that he night be an out
who wanted to sneak in which is something
like the first definition, but more inclusive.
A still maturer judgment is that a nonparti
san is an intense partisan of a confirmed mi
nority seeking a way to fool the majority.
Let us add that in our opinion the nonpar
tisan species is the same and unvarying wherever
found, regardless of climate or country, race,
color or previous condition, and does not differ
in any essential particular as between Oregon
and .Nebraska.
No mystery should surround the wheat situ
ation in the United States. Especially is this
true of Nebraska, where a great shortage in sup
plies held in mills and elevators is apparent.
First of all, the 1917 crop was short in Ne
braska, with only a few million bushels above
state requirements. Control of all wheat was
assumed by the federal food administration, and
its milling department was given charge of op
erations. Several weeks ago licensed millers in
Nebraska were instructed to cease operation, as
they had attained the limit of production per
mitted them. This order prevented the accumu
lation of stocks of grain in hands of the millers.
What is true of Nebraska applies in some de
gree to all parts of the country. Continual de
mand for export has prevented the storage of
grain as usual. At the first of March stock of
wheat in hands of farmers was reported at 10,000,
000 bushels greater than a year ago; this is ac
countable for by the fact that no speculative de
mand for the grain has existed, and that all
movement has been under direction of the food
administrator, who has been hampered in turn
by the railroad congestion and the shortage of
cars for handling farm produce. In Nebraska
the stock of wheat on March 1 was but little
over 2,000,000 bushels, practically all in the hands
of farmers, and much of it needed for seed.
The gain in surplus is undoubtedly due to the
great campaign for conservation of the grain. All
these facts should be known at Washington, and
they combine to exonerate the farmer from any
charge of undue hoarding. However, if a farmer
were inclined to hoard, he is furnished with con
tinual incentive thereto by the action of congress,
where from time to time promise is held out to
him that the price of wheat fixed by the govern
ment and by law is to be raised.
The minimum price for the 1918 crop was put
at $2 a bushel under belief that a liberal allow
ance was being made. This has persistently been
attacked by profiteers, and even now Senator
Gore of Oklahoma and Senator McCumber of
North Dakota are demanding a price of $2.50,
while a Missouri "authority" insists the figure
would be $4 if the government had not interfered.
If congress will cease its agitation the farmer
will continue to raise and sell wheat and earn
a profit at $2 per bushel.
"Standing Back of the President."
The most amazing exhibition of devotion to an
unpatriotic purpose we have been given within
the last year is that persistency with which Sena
tor Reed of Missouri clings to his futile attack on
Food Administrator Hoover. During all the
weeks the food administration bill was before
congress the senator thundered with all his elo
quence against the plan and against Mr. Hoover.
Passage of the bill did not silence him; from time
to time, as he can gain the floor, the tirade of
abuse and criticism is renewed. Inasmuch as
Herbert Hoover was the personal selection of
President Wilson for the important place, and
that the president has approved his course in all
ways, the antics of the Missouri senator amount
to criticism of the chief executive of the nation.
What is said here is not offered in defense of Mr.
Hoover, whose work has been done openly and
with all sincerity, but to indicate the quality of
support the president has had from his own party
in congress. Senator Stone of Missouri was one
of the "12 willful men" who defeated the presi
dent in the senate last March; Speaker Champ
Clark left the chair of the house to speak in op
position to the selective draft, and gave out an
interview strongly against it, and Senator Reed
has relentlessly fought the president's food con
servation measures. And out of all this the
kaiser's supporters, here and abroad, have drawn
comfort and support.
Building Boats of Stone.
. Success attending the launching of a ship huflt
from reinforced concrete opens a new vista down
which the imagination peers with pleasure. Man's
slow struggle upward through the ages has been
measured in a large degree by the facility with
which he has adapted to his uses materials for
navigating the waters of the earth. From the
day the first adventurous antediluvian ferried
himself across a reptile-infested stream, astride
a log, in search of safety or impelled by sheer
curiosity, down to now, civilization has gone
ahead just as man has been able to make his
journeyings by water more certain and expedi
tious. Many ages intervene between the earliest
raft on which he risked his life and gear alike
and the time when his ripe experience taught him
iron could be expanded into form to serve in lieu
of wood, and he might thus unite strength and
buoyancy and achieve a real triumph in naval
progress. This lesson was taught by necessity of
war. The Monitor and the Merrimac Tiave given
birth to progeny of such might and variety as
still amaze and confound the simple, with the
deadly submarine at the end of the lengthening
line. To this must now be added the "stone"
boat, for that is what the reinforced concrete
vessel amounts to. Its possibilities are yet to be
developed. One launching does not make, al
though it does promise, a fleet. If the new vessel
should be what its projectors fondly hope, the
building of merchant navies has gone another
great step farther because of the war that has
brought about this experiment.
Questions For Nebraska Farmers
Which Is of Greater Value to the State The Sheep or the Dog?
, BY G. W.
What is the matter with the sheep busi
ness in Nebraska? Why have Nebraska
farmers and land owners not more sheep on
their lands? Why is Nebraska one of the
lowest states in the union in sheep popula
tion? An endless list of questions might
be asked defining the lack of interest among
the farmers in this state in the matter of
owning and keeping sheep.
There is one reason at the bottom of the
scarcity of sheep in Nebraska, and that is
the dog and coyote nuisance, the fear of
damage to the flocks from this source. It is
a well known fact that sheep cannot be
safely kept in Nebraska without building a
dog and wolf-proof barricade around all pas
tures, sheep lots and enclosures where sheep
are left over night. This annoyance and
vexation of frequent loss by the killinsr and
wounding of sheep is too much for the or
dinary stock man to endure, and he sells out
and quits.
Nebraska can be made one of the greatest
sheep growing states in the union by a little
good protective legislation in favor of the
sheep growing industry. Other sheep grow
ing states have their dog laws and wolf
bounty laws that make it .possible for the
sheep owner to prosecute this industry in
safety. It is only necessary to make the dog
responsible, financially, for the sheep killed
and Injured, and the farmers will tumble
over each other to get into the sheep grow
ing business. Why? Because there is more
money in it than any other feature of live
stock handling. '
Give the farmers to know that the dogs
of the state are all taxed, and that this tax
fund is held in each county treasury ready
to pay any and all damage to sheep com
mitted in the county by dogs, and you have
insured sheep raising. All the farmer wants
to know is that he is safe from dog damage
to his flock. If the dog tax is established, he
knows there will be fewer good-for-nothing,
idle sheep-killing dogs kept and in case he
meets with loss that he will get what his
sheep are worth.
This solves the question whether or not
Nebraska shall remain as at present with
an annual population of about 200000 sheep
or develop to 1,500,000 to 2.000,000 sheep
within the next few years. . Nebraska farm
ers would prefer to raise their feeder sheep,
but they cannot take the risk of this inevi
table loss, under the present lack of pro
tection. The sheep-killing dog is the greatest hin
drance to the growth of the sheep industry
in any state that the sheep owner has to en
counter. The wisdom of legislation, in the
suppression of the dog nuisance, stands out
prominently in all states that have suc
ceeded in developing the sheep and wool
business. It may plainly be stated that no
farming state has ever been able to main
tain a free and untaxed dog producing in
dustry and the sheep business at the same
time, and be successful in both. It has been
tried in all states in the union and failed,
the useless dog that does not represent any
legitimate industry being obliged to give way
to the sheep.
There are but few states in the United
States whose sheep and wool interests are
not represented by millions of dollars. On
the other hand there are but few states that
recognize the dog as of any value. The per
sonal value of the dog is so low in the esti
mation of the general public that it is con
fined almost entirely to the friendship or
attachment that the dog and his master have
for each other, and this has no market or
intrinsic value, such as is found in the mut
ton chops, leg of mutton or the woolen fab
rics that clothe humanity, both rich and
poor. As to the relative value of these two
classes of animal creation in their relation to
man, there is no basis upon which a com
parison can be placed.
The sheep feature of our live stock con
ditions are wrong-end foremost here in Ne
braska; we should have fewer dogs, no coy
otes and more sheep, yes, millions more dol
lars employed in the creating of more dol
lars, more prosperity, more wool to clothe
our people, more mutton to feed the hun
gry. Think of this, and help to plan for the
protection of our legitimate industries.
Think of this and help conserve the food
waste that is providing the 109,742 dogs of
Nebraska a living which should be con
verted to the present needs of starving hu
manity, and commence at once in sowing
the seed of practical conservation at home.
What is our dog industry worth to our
state? What revenue is produced by our
dog population of 109,742 dogs? And this
only represents those voluntarily listed.
Does it yield a dollar in actual commercial
interests? Yet we permit dogs and wolves
to go unrestrained over our farms, destroy
ing live stock. We are producing less than
50 per cent of the wool to clothe our own
people in these United States, and yet Ne
braska persists in feeding its $60,000 worth
of sheep annually to the dogs and wolves,
without money and without price. Why this
wanton extravagance when the high prices
of food and clothing are staring us in the
face, and the passage of a dog law, such as
the sheep owners and farmers have been
asking for, would relieve this situation?
Savage Instincts . of Prussians
Germany the Slave of a Hybrid Race
Louis H. Gray in ScribnerV
of a hybrid race, the bondmaid of a people
which has usurped not merely the lands, but
the very name of an alien folk. The theft has
succeeded well, so well that it has been for
gotten by the world, and the Prussian boasts
today that not only is he a German, but that
he is the German. In a sense he is right, for
he is but seeking to repeat in the present war
the ruthlessness and the mercilessness which
he practiced when first the Germans gained
the mastery of the Prussians and the world,
honest in the main and wont to take men to
be what they claim to be, has believed his
vaunt. In a far truer sense he is wrong in his
boast and his historians must in their hearts
know him to be false in it. He is not a Ger
man; he is a hybrid, and through his male
ficent sway, through his strange mixture of
tyranny and intrigue, he has so corrupted and
perverted the sterling virtues of the true Teu
ton within the German empire that for many
a year the real representatives of the ancient
Germans, whom a Tacitus could portray as
models for the decadent days of Rome, are
to be found only without its borders. Anglo
Saxon civilization is the heir of the spiritual
and moral legacy of the Germany of olden
days liberty and fair play, justice, honor and
purity; German civilization has become
Prussian and is no longer German.
The war has been ascribed to many "causes
and most of them have, indeed, been veryLcorda
real laciors, ooin economically ana politi
cally. But one reason for the conflict stands
out above all the rest the concept well
termed Prussianism. This Prussianism it is
which has given this war its distinctive char
acteristics. Morally the war is not remark
able because of its vast scope nor is it note
worthy because of the racial elements strug
gling against each other. The world has
seen these things before and has become the
better through them; in all probability it
will see the like again in its slow struggle
upward. Neither is the war a mere struggle
for liberty, dear though this be. In the last
analysis we fight against a principle even
more monstrous than enslavement and this
is the reason why, more than in any other
war that history records; the moral force of
righteousness strengthens our arms against
the well-nigh overwhelming powers of wickedness.
a moral imbecile, an arrested development,
a savage in civilization's garb and even the
garb he has stolen. Like the savage, he is
imitative, not inventive; like the savage, he
is boastful and cunning. Among the na
tions he is precisely what the type of morally
imbecile but intellectually educated criminal
is among individuals. If this were all we
might forgive, though for the welfare of so
ciety the imbecile must be segregated from
the sane. But the peculiar horror of his in
iquity is that the imbecility is voluntary and
self-induced. "There is a sin unto death"
so writes Saint John, the beloved disciple,
who had leaned on the Master's bosom "I
do not say that he shall pray for it."
From the wider point of view this war Is
but an episode in the age-long struggle be
tween good and evil, between God and the
devil. The end was foreseen almost 2,000
years ago by the seer on lonely Patmos. By
reason of our human limitations we must bat
tle with earthly weapons against the hosts of
evil and must labor for our salvation. It is
meet and right so to do, else we could scarce
retain our self-respect, but the Cross of Saint
George, floating over the Holy City, re
deemed at last from the unbeliever, is to us
a sign and a symbol of what shall soon come
to pass, if only we be constant and perform
our share of the divine covenant Sursum
Conceived in greed and born in crime, nur
tured in cruelty and grown great in rob
bery, this hideous and incongruous hybrid
of Roman and German, of Slav and Mongol,
has flourished like the green bay-tree. But
on its heart has ever been the worm whose
name is Fear, and Fear, whereby it thought
to rule the world, is become its Nemesis. The
Prussian has sinned, deliberately, con
sciously and scientifically. His sin has
brought him worldly gain and were it not
for fear he would be well content. But sin
is bought for a price and that price is moral
death it is damnation both , in this world
and in the world to come, unless there be
true repentance and all possible reparation.
For worldly gain the Prussian has stunted his
own soul. We have $een what he is eth
nologically and historically. Ethically he is
"God's in His heaven.
All's right with the world."

Through the window gleaming
Like a beacon light,
Hanga a little banner,
Red and blue and white.
In tha stately mansion
And the cottage, too,
Hanga this flag of service,
Red and white and blue.
Bright flags, soft and silken,
Blue stars shining bright;
Flaga of coarser fabric
And in dimmer light.
Silent little token
In the window there
Of a circle broken
And a vacant chair.
Mothers, wives and sweethearts,
Fathers, sisters, too.
Love this little banner,
Red and white and blue.
Precious little token
I Of the ones they miss;
Little banner christened
With a tear and kiss.
Little flag of service,
Tou have helped us bear
Loneliness and sorrow.
Just by shining there.
Through the window gleaming
Like a beaoon light.
Little flag of service
Red and blue and white.
