UNDER THE STARS AND STRIPES.
Today the "Stars and 3lripes are whipped in
every wind that blows around the globe, kissed
by the sun of every clime, an emblem every
where of man's highest achievements and noblest
aspirations in life. Beneath that banner today
stands the mightiest nation of all the world's
history, united in arms to support and defend all
that Old Glory represents. No selfish motive,
no thought of conquest, of national aggrandize
ment or gam in wealth and honor, moved this
peace-loving people lo take up arms and enter
the world-war. Animated by the loftiest pur
poses, dedicated solely to the preservation of
human rights and the liberty ; of - all peoples,
Americans have put aside, their- ease, tioffed their
garb of peace and dopned the panoply of war,
determined to strike such a mighty blow against
tyranny, injustice and oppression, that the world
will be made safe for all freemen and unsafe only
for despots. This .has been our national destiny,
and to, it we have built upTour, strength. Just
as for longer thana century men of every race
sought under the Stars and Stripes security and
opportunity that could -be found nowhere else,
aonow they see the flag of our country in the
sky, a vision more peal and substantial than that
which daztled the eyes of Constantine at noon
day, and with legend as clear: "Under this sign

ppen or Secret Discussion of Treaties? .
Senator Hitchcock's personal organ credits him
with having won a great victqry in defeating the
Borah resolution calling for open debate in the
senate on pending treaties. For the present at
least the chairman (by rightof seniority of the
foreign affaire committee has been able lo pre
serve secret debate on our dealings with foreign
powers. This is the last vestige of star-chamber
practice that once permeated our system1 of gov-
ernmeni in me lorm or secret caucuses agree
ments and the like. It ifremarkable thaf the
democrats, with all their parade of "let the people
rule," should cling to this last remnant of bygone
diys. ' i
Secret diplomacy has generally been de
nounced as something to be avoided in the future.
Our president includes it as one of the cardinal
points on whjchUhe future peace of the world
la to be established. Senator Hitchcock contends
he correctly interprets the president's meaning
to be that reaties may be negotiated and ratified
secretly, and the people be informed of their
contents after the engagements have been made.
This is keeping the word of promise to the ear
and breaking it to the hope.
ft is conceivable that in certain situations the
president might ask that delicate foreign rela
tione be considered in camera. At such a time
It would be proper for the senate to consult be
hind dosed doors, but the practice should be to
require a motion to -consider the treaty in execu
tive session, rather than one to discuss it openely.
The Borah resolution ia In line with public senti
ment and sooner or later will be made the 'rule,
despite the bourbonism that persists in the present
majority of the .senate. ,'

C y of the pleasures of life,' might have learned
czsethinf at the convention of the blind held
?e thia week. SuA persons would have been
r :st agreeably astonished to find these afflicted
t 1'viduala laughing and talking among them
i.Ttcs, going cheerfully about the routine of their
r :etisg, "reading" papers, discussing points, re-
LZag experiences, and even telling of what they
"iaw" about the city,; These blind people have
a most comforting way of adapting themselves
to their aituation. Instead of bemoaning the sad
fate that deprives them of eight, they set about
t) develop their other senses, so that any loss
i :e to the missing one may be supplied by the
tliers as far as possible. What they can not

Food Administrator Hoover haa requested
that more ardent effort to save beef be made by
Americana His latest order puts us on shorter
Nations than the one establishing meatless days,
with the exception that it does not now include
pork or mutton. I Americans are so devoted to
the war that they will waste ho time ,in discuss
ing the whysand wherefores of this, but Jvill
cheerfully respond. If it is necessary ta' deny
themselves beef in order to help the soldiers
they will give up beef. Aside from any patriotic
or sentimental reason, the order carries with it
something of hygienic value. During the long,
hot days that stretch between now and Septem
ber 15 the prudent man will voluntarily abstain
from meat as much as possible, contenting him
self with liehter diet, to the end that his bodilv
comfort and physical well-being be properly con
served. It will be slight sacrifice for many to
give over beef in all forms, and the privation of
the few can be compensated, for as have all the
donations we have made from our habits of self
indulgence. It is a contribution, small enough,
to the success of the great cause, and if the sol
diers need the beef we will give it to them.

The Hohenzollerns vs. Democracy
Final Drive of Autocracy for Uncontested Supremacy.
New York Evening Post.
That ihe German government has nowi
fully committed .itself to combat the demo
cratic movement, evidence accumulates. We
need not take too seriously the roundabout
reports irom- Austria that uermany may
intervene to aid the Austrian government in
withstanding the demands for self-govern-,
inent within the dual monarchy. There can
be no doubt, however, that what is going on
in Bohemia causes as much concern in Berlin
as it does in Vienna. But in Finland, in the
Ukraine, as well as m the Russian Baltic
provinces, uertnan mttuence and uerman
bayonets are distinctly put at the service of
political reactionaries. It is a vast change
since the first days of the Russian revolution,
when the German chancellor, Bethmann-
Hollweg, made his remarkable'Speech warn
ing absolute monarchs to .give need to the
aspirations of the people. The particular ap
plication of this lie then made was to the
Prussian franchise bill. But it has not yet
nassed and the junkers and the fatherland
party declare stoutly that it htust not be al
lowed to pass. During the twelvemonth
past Germany has swung over, to full re
action. . v ' :
How bold the reactionaries have become
was strikingly brought out by protesting so
cialists at a recent meeting of the Reichstag
committee. They complained bitterly of a
pamphlet, containing "patriotic instruction,"
which had been freely circulated in the army,
oarticularlv amonsr the troops under General
von Eichhorn. There have been references
to the matter in the cable dispatches. Fuller
extracts from this quasi-official attack upon
democracy and democratic nations have come
by mail and show what an unblushing ciocu
ment it is. " Thus we read that there is
nothing more insupportable than democracy."
In democratic countries "money plays the
chief part.". And take this: .
"He who does not reiect democratic in
ternational propaganda on the' veny threshold
is working for the enemy; he is not work
ing for true freedom and equality, but for the
interests of ' an international' society , of
In the Reichstag committee the minister
of war denied that he 'had ever heard of this
"instruction" olaced in the hands of German
soldiers. But no less a person than Herr
Erzbemer at once rose to declare that he
himself had sent copies of it to the ministry
of war more than a month before. As we
have said, the pamphlet pays its respect to
existingdemocracies. Of France it says that
its motto of liberty, equality, fraternity, must
be translated "disobedience, irreverence and
hatred." As for the United States, it is "the
land of corruption and bribery." But it ap-
nears that we must discriminate between
democracy and independence. "Let us, de
mand Ireland forithe Iriah, so that we can
make Irelands interests our own an
liaven it knowethN what that may mean.
Egypt and India ought'also to be independ
ent, while Gibraltar should be given back
to Spain and the Suez canal to the Turks
Still, one must not press independence too
farl For Germany needs in its business some
lands that desire independence. "In the east
Courland. Lithuania, and large tracts of Po
land will Rive uo the necessary settlements
for German peasants. In the west and, east
we must keep the important coal and iron
areas. Above all, we must maintain our
control of the Flanders coast. r
To such a publication we would ,'nof at
tach more weight than it deserves. But it
falls in with much other evidence. The way
in which the German agents av Brest-Litovsk
met the challenge of the Rassian radicals
with a rough military hand: the open aid
given by German troops to the, counter-revolution
in Finland and the Ukraine; the. talk
of supplying monarchs to both these inde
pendent republics; the willingness of the
German rulers to be identified with "order
in Warsaw." meaning stern -and bloody re
pression of agitation for? popular rights;
their emasculation and final postponement of
their promised law to make the, franchise
equal in Prussia all these and jother mani
festations the Vssential spirit :.'of Prussian
ism argue strongly an intention ' to crush
German liberalism if the military party has
' its way. , ' ,. v' 1 -
All this casts its light upon the renewal
of the German attack on the western front.
It is dictated not merely by miliary exi
gency. It is the. final bid of the junkers and
the dynasty for uncontested supremacy.
They are willing, nay, from their point afj
view, are forced, to hazard everything in
order to sustain themselves in power. For
they know that if they go back to Germany
beaten, there will be an end of their whole
regime. It is not Germany fighting' in self
defense on the battlefields of France; it is
Prussian autocracy against democracy. No
wonder 'that the democrats of the world are
bidding ea"ch other to be of stout heart and
unconquerable faith in withstanding the on
; We Won't Fight, Eh?
- Just before he departed from Germany
Ambassador Gerard reports Wilhelm Ho-
henzollern sneeringly remarked, "Oh, Amer
ica won't fight." '
This country has been at war with Ger
many now 14 months. In that period it has
raised $10,UU0,000,00U for war purposes;: it
has armed and equipped 1,000,000 men, and
more, the greater part of whom are now in
France, andjwho, according to late reports,
are halting the Hun's second drive on Paris
until enough of them will be- prepared to
smash them. It is launching ships at a. rate
that is the amazement and wonder of alt; it
is turning out munitions in quantities almost
incredible, and shipping airplanes by the
hundreds, if not thousands, every week.i In
deed, America is preparing on a scale so stu
pendous as to cause wonder. Won't fight,
eh? . - .
There may have been a time when this
country was as slow to action as it is to
wrath. All this has changed. One need
only watch on the streets the demonstrations
that take place whenever some of the heroes
from "over there" . parade; or see t,he
"movie" audiences when battle scenes are
thrown on the screen, or portraits of the
president, our army and navy leaders or the
soldiers of our allies. The people of Amer
ica are Hot only in this- war, they are for it
Won't fight? The tremendous sacrifices
which Hohenzollern is making; the tens of
thousands whom he is sending to untimely
death; the starvation to which he js subject
ing his nation; the haste' to accomplish his
fiendish' work before America really gets in,
belie his sneering and .contemptuous remark.
The nation that so easily subscribed to $10,
000,000,000 of Liberty bonds; that cheerfully
gives hundreds of millions to the Red Cross
and other war demands, is in this fight to
the bitter end as Hohenzollern will discover
before many more moons. Chicago Invest
Grafting on the Soldier.
Omaha,vjJune 13. To the Editor
of The Bee: One- of my sons In the
service Is at Kelly field, Ban. Antonio,
Tex. Some time since he went into
a restaurant in San Antonio to get a
lunch.- When he-went to pay for the
lunph they were going1 to hold him up.
The price named was' out of all
reason. - He thuew down what he
thought:' was full payment for what
he got. r The boy 4.siuite a husky kid
and there was about to be a rough
house when a policeman appeared on
the scene and asked my boy what
the trouble is. He tpld hirt. Ttr
place was put out of uAlueoo.
Is it not a fact that we forget the
great obligation we owe the boys who
are fighting our and posterity" bat
tles? Is it not a fact that too often
they are robbed of the scant allow
ance they get from, the government?
The man who will rob the boy' in the
serviced the present time is a graft
er, a patriotic robber, and should be
pint out of business He is not worthy
of public patronage. ; '
Yesterday a young man from Fo-t
Omaha, and, who did service in Mex
ico, came to my offloe to inquire what
it would cost to bridge in a front
tooth. After taking in the situation,
I told him I Will put i a gold bridge,
with porcelain facing, for $5. This
is pot by any means my regular price.
He just came from an office where
the defatict asked him J SO for a por
celain facing, $45 for an allfgoUi
tooth. I want to raise my voica
against this grafting our soldiers. I
don t care.wnetner ne is in-my own
profession 'or not, the man who will
impose thus on one of our boys should
feel the indignation of a patriotic
public. It is not a time to get the
dollar, but to overthrows militarism,
and uphold and extend 5 democracy
throughout the world.

As it swing In the teeth of the storms ol
And sings In the gales of the sea.
It runs In the winds of the plains, '
It steadies and stiffens and thrills,
It streams in the smoke of the scatterinl
And gleam on the bayonet hills.' -
Oh, sing we the song of th flag.'
