Nsdon and Nebraska Again Clash. .
Out of the effort of the nstional administration
take control of the transportation services of
is country has developed another clash of au
ority between the United States and Nebraska,
'ae state railway commission has been requested
V file a schedule of Intrastate rates to conform
th the intersute rates adopted by the newly
nned national express company. This the com
ssion politely declines to do, setting forth that
press rates in Nebraska are fixed by statute,
Jiough the board may alter or amend the
.hedules if convinced on proper showing that
..uch action is just and proper. In Its reply to the
I national rate making authorities the Nebraska
board makes an important concession; it will
treat the United States as well as it will any pri-
vats concern, and if the government will come to
Lincoln and make it clear to the railway commis
sion that the proposed raise in rates is justifiable,
then some steps may be taken. At any rate, the
Nebraska body assures the i administration
square deal, and that is all anyone could ask under
the circumstances. In the meantime the patrons
of the express companies are undecided as to
whicti schedule of ratea applies in Nebraska, but
most of them are inclined to think that what
Uncle Sam says goes.
YOUNG AMERICANS CALLED TO DUTY.
Less important in numbers only than the
great lottery of June last year was the one just
over, in which the order for service of another
great group of young Americans, called for duty
as soldiers, hat been determined. Intense inter-
est marked the proceeding, showing that the pub
lic has abated nothing of its concern for the boys
who are going out This group is most impres
sively reminded of the fact that its members have
come to manhood's stature of years, for they find
themselves immediately caught up into the dis
charge of the supreme obligation of citizenship,
that of putting themselves forward to stand as a
living wall between their country and its foes.
Very few laggards will be found among these
lads; nearly all of them are eager to be enrolled
in the army of freedom and go to the colors with
hearts beating high because they do get the
chance. On them the country has fixed its hopes
and laid heavy responsibility. Their 'earliest
share' in the full life of the nation will be to de
fend it the ptoudest assignment that can fall to a
citiren of the republic And in time they have
their reward. The drawing of yesterday placed
a solemn charge and a badge of honor on more
of America's young manhood.
Double Benefit of "W. S. S."
Throughout the land today an especial effort
is being made to "put over" the War Saving
Stamp campaign. Argument in favor of this
form of thrift and assistance to the government
seems unnecessary at this time. The thrift stamp
was specifically devised to attract the individual
whose circumstances would not permit invest
ment in Liberty bonds. With this as its primary
purpose, the plan was extended to invite those
who could and would put in more considerable
sums, as well as to provide easy means for the
employment of amounts as low as 25 cents.
And the general effect of the campaign has
been beyond expression. Millions who could not
otherwise have contributed have found here an
avenue through which to bring their mite to the
service of the national cause. ' Ambition to assist
has led to equal ardor in saving, and pennies,
nickels and dimes, once idly spent, are now care
fully conserved or zealously hoarded, to be later
invested in the much prized thrift stamp. The
obvious lesson is easy to apply. Once the indi
vidual, young or old, notes how readily the penny
grows into the quarter, and the thrift stamp into
the War Saving Stamp, and how the latter brings
its promise of further increase, the habit of
saving gets an Impetus it otherwise might never
. Economy is not parsimony, nor is thrift to be
confounded with niggardliness; but the careful
conservation of small sums, and the purchase
therewith of War Savings Stamps has a double
service, to the country and all its citizens, and to
the one who practices the habit direct and bene
fieial in both.
For GftUanrry ia Action.
Americans have long bees accustomed to take
for granted that soldiers wearing Uncle Sam's
uniform will acquit themselves like men under
fire. It is accepted that bravery, heroism and
supreme sacrifice are mere routine matters, part
of the day's work, and that an individual becomes
conspicuous above his fellows because of the ac
cident of opportunity. Accepting this as true,
there yet lurks under our national complacency
enough of vanity to be tickled by the announce
ment that our boys sre living up to the highest
and best traditions of the service, and are exhib
iting all the noble attributes characteristic of the
rase, .- ., .; . -.

Samples of German Propaganda
Facts About Labor in Fatherland Reveal National Hoax
Of the various kinds of German propa
ganda which have been scattered like con
fetti over the world, none has been so suc
cessful as that 'which has extolled the su
perior social and economic conditions of the
German empire. It served to cloak the sin
ister purposes of the imperial German gov
ernment It enlisted the regard of the Work
ing classes and intellectuals of other peoples.
It caused many of them after the outbreak
of the war to temporize for Germany and
served to allay the righteous indignation and
horror aroused by the bestial atrocities of its
military hordes. The League for National
Unity has assembled the facts regarding
these conditions prior to the war. They are
drawn from official German documents and
other authoritative sources and deat with the
Oppression of the farmers.
Industrial enslavement of women and
Shocking housing conditions.
Chronic underfeeding and great infant
The large extent of pauperism.
Counterfeit social insurance.
Among other startling things revealed
are that conditions under which workers and
farmers in Germany lived and labored were
intolerable in the extreme; that women and
children worked like beasts of burden on
farms and in the cities; that sweatshops
abounded; that the living conditions of the
majority of workers would not be tolerated
in any American community; that they suf
fered from lack of food ana fuel and labored
tor stretches of hours unparalleled in other
countries, for starvation wages.
The Teutonic press agents in America
have extolled in particular the provisions
for giving .financial Credit to sma,ll farmers
in Germany. In the United States the fed
eral farm loan act operates to the benefit of
small farmers who actually till the soil, and
eliminates absentee landlords. Dr. Kapp
Konigsberg, general director of the Prussian
Landschaften the mutual farm loan asso
ciatiemr testyfying before a visiting com
mission in 1912, admitted that the system of
loans on landed property had benefited
chiefly land-owning aristocracy. Of the
estates which exceeded two and one-half
acres 66.3 per cent had availed themselves
of landschaft loans; the corresponding pro
portion in the case of peasant holdings was
only 13.5 per cent. In Germany 2,084,060
farm holdings are under one and one-fourth
acres, 1,294,449 are from one and one-quarter
to five acres, 1,006,277 are from five to 12
acres and 1,065,539 are from 2. to 50 acres.
The Landwirtschaftliche Betriebsstatistik
further shows that while millions of peasant
farmers have only tiny farms, 23,566 junkers
-feudal barons or magnate farmers own
nearly 25,000,000 acres in estates of 250 to 500
acres and more.
Does one see women and children hitched
with oxen and dogs drawing plows and carts
in the United States? In Germany, reports
F. J. H. von Engelken of South Carolina, a
member of the visiting American commission,
the greater portion even of heavy farm 'work
is done by women. According to testimony
given on farm wages in 1912, a woman farm
laborer earns from 38 to 48 cents a day and
children over 12 years get 24 cents a day,
without board. Male farm labor gets 72
cents a day. Furthermore, the demeaning
caste system which sharply defines a peasant
Ul Germany is surpassed in rigidity perhaps
only in India. For a few years prior to the
war the following wages prevailed in the
Miners, hard coal mines, an average of
$334 a year.

Carpenters, $1.24 to $1.61 a day.
Plumbers, gas fitters and steam fitters,
$1.13 to $1.39 a day.

Artisans and mechanics, state railway, 98
cents to $1.09 a day.
Employes, Prusian-Hessian State railway,
average 76 cents a day.
Able-bodied seamen, Baltic and North
sea, average $15.18 -a month. ,
This list includes skilled men only. An
investigation made by the Federation of Ger
man Woodworkers an industry employing
nearly 800,000 persons disclosed that the
average weekly labor hours of carpenters,
basketmakers, wheelwrights, wooden shoe
makers, box and toymakers were 57 hours.
The average weekly earnings of adult males
were $5.99 a week. According to a summary
sent out by the German imperial statistical
office, the average earnings of men per day
in certain important groups of nidustries
were, in March. 1914:
f Metal industry ". ' $1.32
Engineering industry l.Zo
Electrical industry 1.07
Paper industry 93
Woodworking industry 1.01
Chemical industry 1.24
Stoneworking and pottery 1.07
Food, drink and tobacco i 1.36
Leather and rubber 1.20
. (Comparing these wages with the cost of
living, we find on the same authority that
the average yearly earning of unskilled work
men was $310 and of skilled workmen $373.
The result has been that in 278 of those fam
ilies the wife had to work out. Every sec

Why the Word "Hun" Sticks
Vratie of the Originals Expanded in Modern Followers
Gradually the word "Run" h supplanting
the term "German" as the descriptive appel
lation, of the people against whom the allied
free nations of the world are now at war.
If the word continues at its present rate of
progress in the common speech, it will even
tually, in the mouths of all people outside of
what we call Germany, take the place of all
other terms, such as Teuton, Prussian and
German in our own tongues, the word "alle
mand" as used by the French and "aleman"
by the Italians, and so on. Certainly a term
of common use among all the opponents of
these ravagers is needed. There is no sense
in shifting the phrase with every liaison be
tween the peoples on the far-flung battle
line of freedom. As a matter of fact, the
inexactness and extreme variability of all pre
vious words used to describe the so-ca lied
"German" people have long been recognized.
They do not call themselves German, except
in a very occasional and literary way. The
terra "Germanus" was first applied to them
in a contemptuous way by one of the Celtic
tribes, and was taken up by the Romans. It
was practically unknown to the Germans
themselves. They have, indeed, no racial
name. They call themselves Deutsch, and
their country Deutschland; but the word
"Deutsch," which we render by "Dutch," and
apply to another people which does not call
itself by that name, signifies merely "the
people. Its use is a relic of the practice
among all primitive tribes and races of call
ing themselves "the people" as if there were
no others in the world entitled to the name.
To this day all American Indians, in their
respective tongues and dialects, call them
selves "the real people," inventing various
fantastic designations for all other races
and nations. It is an essentially savage
In view of the fact that the Germans
really have not any honestly earned or scien
tifically applied name, the word "Hun" may
be as good for them as any other. What
does it signify? This word also has no de
terminably racial character. It was first ap
plied to a horde of ravagers who, in' the
fourth century of the Christian era, came into
Europe from Central Asia, and, under the
command of a fierce chieftain called Attila,
began to desolate the Roman empire and its
colonies and dependencies. These people
were called Hunni by the Romans, evidently
following their own' designation of them
selves: for in the same general period corre
sponding hordes, coming from the same gen
eral region, began to attack India, where they
were called Hun'i, and China, where they
were known as Heung-nu. They were in
truth a racially mixed lot, a gathering up of
precious rascals from many sources. Their
warfare was massacre, their God was force,
their discipline was mutilation. They sought
the world's hate rather than its blessing.
Bought off, or weakened by dissipation, or
attracted elsewhere, they scourged and mur
dered in a scattering sort of way until the
tenth century, when they or their like came
again, under one Arpad, this time to stay.
They established themselves on the Danube,
in what was then Moravia, and have been
there ever since. Indeed, they extended
their ravages to Italy, and even to Lorraine,
and it was then that the Emperor Otto pro
claimed them "the enemies of God and hu
manity." He refused to receive their am
bassadors, because they did nothing but lie;
and he led Europe victoriously against them
near Augsburg, in 955, puting to death all
their army except seven men, who were sold
into slavery. But the Huns remained on the
Danube, whence, in the persons of" the Hun
garians, they come forth once more, under
the lead of one worse than Attila or Arpad,
as the enemies of God and humanity.
Why do we call the old Huns' successors,
the self-styled Deutsch, Huns today? Be
cause they adopt the savage warfare, the re
lentless cruelty, the insolence of barbarity,
of the ancient Huns; because their ambassa
dors deal in lies, and their rulers refuse to
keep their agreements; because they despise
liberty and justice, and seek to destroy all
that the world has stored up of the fruits of
civilization. At first the term "Hun" was
applied to them in pure horror, occasionally
only, and as a figure of speech. It tends to
become habitual The hand of fate may be
in this. The term has been abundantly
earned. It is as simple as it is true, and as
true as it is simple. Without losing a shred
of its character as an epithet of horror, it
may pass into an accepted designation for a
people which has indeed done all it can to
transfer to its shoulders a name that long
since became the recognized sum and expres
sion of all cruelties and infamies.

Will Enforce the Law.
Omaha, June 26. To the Editor of
The Bee: S(nce becoming & candi
date for the' republican nomination
for county attorney I have been asked
the question how I stand on law en
forcement. ' Tills is a fair question
and de- Tids a square answer.
All liberty depends upon law. Our
troops are fighting in the trenches to
defend our liberty, and we at home
must protect that liberty by the en
forcement of the laws of the land.
If elected county attorney I shall
use all the power of the office to en
force the laws of the state- of Ne
braska. Murderers, burglars, porch-climbers,
thieves, bootleggers, pimps, thugs,
grafters and vagrants are destructive
to social liberty and human happi
ness, and they should and must be
driven out of Douglas county.
If elected, I shall do all I can to
bring this about without fear or favor
or other reward than the salary of the
office and the satisfaction of doing
my duty. Yours very truly,
ABEL V. SHOTWELL.
Osteopathy and the Army.
Galesburg, III., June 25. To the
Editor of The Bee: In view of all
that appears in the public press re
garding the need of physicians for
army service, I am sure there are
many citizens of unquestionable loy
alty who feel fully justified in deplor
ing the attitude ot Secretary Baker
and Surgeon General Gorgas in ex
cluding osteopathic physicians from
It is difficult for the citizen who
tries to maintain all proper regard
for law and authority to understand
why the government should not avail
itself of all competent means of in
creasing the efficiency of the military
medical service. Is it not too bad
that mere traditional prejudice
should stand in the way of a willing
and capable class of citizens doing
their bit? The law regulating the
conduct of the War department states
that graduates of al. reputable schools
of medicine are eligible to examina
tion for appointment as physicians.
Colleges of osteopathy are duly recog
nized as schools of medicine in the
meaning of the law. The War de
partment however, has assumed the
right to decide that only graduates
of colleges conferring the degree of
M.D. shall be considered eligible to
the medical examination.
Since the war began more than
1,500 osteopaths, I am Informed, have
offered their services to the govern
ment as physicians and have been re
jected. They have offered to equip
and maintain clinics in connection
with the cantonments and the offer
has been likewise refused. Surely
this is not as it should be. Osteopaths
are graduates of colleges duly au
thorized by Jaw to confer the degree
of doctor of osteopathy and they
should be accorded the same recogni
tion as given to graduates of other
schools. A bill with this object' in
view Is now in congress and whatever
you do to bring about its passage will,
I am sure, be appreciated by many
of your readers. Yours,
L. MAY PINE.

God fashioned It monument
To stand for aye.
For near five centuries valiantly
It had withstood
The elements of time defied decay
And traced its shadow from tha setting
Unbroken and complete withal j
As on tha day 'twas done.
Then hell let loose Its fury
A fury to be spent In worldwide strife;
A fury vested In one maddened monarch,
Possessed, It seems, of satiated life.
Of wantonness and lust and greed.
It was by their self-styled god decreed
That he'd wage war.
"I win destroy tha work of God and man!"
This was the oath he swore.
Then with his seething host or Huns
He came to Rhelms, and there
He trained his mighty guns I
Upon this saintly edifice.
Through day on day and night on night
He hurls his tons of steel and molten fires,
And wonders at the all-resisting might
Which rests within her walls and still
Holds high, defiantly, her lofty spires.
High upon' her ramparts, facing to the Hun
Projects a gargoyle. Grim, hideous and
