" While the allied armies of freedom have been driving back the Hun over the hills of northern France, sweeping them from one river valley to another, a most important conflict has been waging along the valley of the Platte. It has been between the forces of the sun god and the rain god, the corn crop being the stake. For many days this fierce fight has gone on, and last Sunday, when the sun god turned loose all his final reserves of blistering heat, it looked as if the decisive blow had been delivered and the battle lost to the enemy. But the rain god is also a valiant fighter and his scattered forces rallied in time to turn back the first onslaught of the destroyer and save the day for Nebraska. Some damage has been done; no one can say yet how much, but the catastrophe t has been averted. The terrific heat of Sunday and Mon day cost the state many million bushels of corn, just as the hot, dry weather of June turned the wheat crop into a partial failure. But enough will, be raised to keep the state high up in the list of producers and : enable ' us to contribute liberally to the needs of the world. The rains of Tuesday and Wednesday, were not of the million dollar sort; they were worth an hundred million. v 7-;, RESTORATION OF RUSSIA BEGUN. ' Landing of armed bodies of men by the AH lies at Vladivostok and Archangel, 10,000 miles apart, may serve to aid visualization of the im mense task the associated governments have undertaken in the work of restoring Russia. The geographical features of the situation are not the most serious, however. Demoralization of the people is so complete that only by the" most vigorous and at the same time most tactful of conduct will success be brought about The bol sheviki persists in its ruinous efforts, and to counteract its influence will be the first thing to engage attention. It is plain that Lenine and Trotzky are now acting, in the interest of the Germans. Under pretext of maintaining the ascendancy of the proletariat, this precious pair is steadily fastening the shackles of German control more securely on the Russian people. Elements of opposition are uniting, however, finding in the Czecho-Slovaks and now in the presence of the Allies a rallvinsf nlaee for the 'forces ol good order. With ports of entry un der control, the big job has been well started on and its progress will be watched closely by the outside world. It is not now so much a ques tion of getting Russia back on the battle line as it is of saving its poor people from the effect of their own excesses, to check famine and plague and render them once more self-supporting. Keeping them out of the kaiser's clutches will follow, but as a secondary consideration. V Marie Henry in Retirement. "To hell with the Hohenzollern and the Haps burgl" shouts Henry Watterson, veteran editor of the Louisville Courier-Journal, as he takes farewell of the readers who have followed jilm with loving attention for half a century. Amer ican journalism will regretfully accept thefact that a man so loved and honored as "Marse Henry" has given ever his active work, grudging him nothing of well-won rest, and following him into his retirement with the keenest and cleanest of personal interest in his welfare. It is com forting to reflect that neither waning power nor diminution of faculty is responsible for the move. It it simply that th great editor has reached a time when he deserves some release from the treadmill of daily journalism, where he can have a little liberty to do some of the things he" has put off, as all busy editors do, against a day when other tasks will not press so hard. His work has been well done, his splendid leadership competently acknowledged and his fame is solidly fixed. American newspapers are better because of the inspiring presence of Henry Watterson, whose 78 years of life now entitle him to a bit of leisure to spend in his own way. x About the Irish Question A-correspondent arraigns the editor of 'The Bee for lack of sympathetic understanding of the Irish question, His contention rests largely on a misapprehension or failure to follow the course of this paper in its occasional discussion of the Irish situation, , The Bee did not state that no Irish were in the army. Weeks ago ifpointed out that many thousands of brave Irishmen, Catholic and Prot estant alike, were fighting side by side, their re ligious and political differences buried in the bloody mud of Flanders. But this has nothing td do with the fact that the Orangemen of Ul ster, under leadership of Sir Edward' Carson, have resolutely opposed home rule; in 1914, when the war broke out, these Ulsterites were armed and drilling to precipitate civil war should Par liament undertake to ehforce a home rule law. That they have turned their attention to Germany instead is to their credit, but they have not for that reason abated .their resolve not to submit i s to entorced autonomy. On the other hand, Irish Nationalists joined with Sinn Fein in resistance to conscription. Ireland has not contributed proportionately of her man-power. When other elements of the United Kingdom had been brought under the conscription rule, the Irish still' were exempt. Recently they gave the government the alterna tive of receding from the draft or facing insur rection in Ireland. Sinn Fein is accused of mak ing medicine with the Hun, the Casement affair being but one of several plots of, the kind un earthed. ' ' It was these facts that led The Bee to remark that a. "glorious company awaits the presence of Ireland on the battlefield." Irish factions have not helped Ireland's cause by persistence in dis pute or through recrimination. Americans espe cially would rejoice to' see harmony among the Irish, but that will require a little more of the spirit of give and take than now prevails. ' Trade Depression After the War? Probable Outcome as Viewed By English Chamber of Commerce. "Dave" Lewis is to be manager of the tele graphs ' under Postmaster General Burleson, proving to the operators that other ways of get ting to the top exist besides hard work at a key.

American economists - and students of finance and markets will be profoundly in terested in a report made to the Department of Commerce by United States Consul b. Haldeman Dennison, at Birmingham, Eng land, which says in part! "A special committee of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce has prepared a mem orandum on the question of financial risks attached to the holding of trading stocks after the war. The report states that while, on the whole, there does not at present exist a financial inability to hold trading stocks, such inability will exist after the war to a considerable degree, even as regards the re stricted quantities of stocks that are likely to be obtainable. further: '"Taking trade as a whole, there will be serious depression after the -war, owing to many factors which will operate. This de pression will be great, immediate and will continue tor a long period. It will particu larly affect the luxury trades. Among the reasons for this opinion are: The govern ment will immediately cancel the munition contracts; there will be a considerable short age of tonnage and a serious lack of railway facilities, owing to inadequacy of rolling stock, etc.; much dislocation of trade and in dustry will be experienced during demobili zation; trade Organization, which was pro ceeding, wilt necessarily be delayed, pending the settlement of Satisfactory relations be tween employers and employed; and much time will be occupied by works and factories in changing over from'the production of mu nitions of war to the production of articles of peaceful commerce.' ''With regard to remedies or palliatives, the committee makes the following sugges tions: t -.. , ,. '"A certain amount of control, both in the price and in the distribution of materials and commodities, will "be desirable and neces sary at the close of the war. but this should T)e withdrawn at the earliest posible moment. treasury restrictions on the issue of new capital should be removed. Dividends should not ' be limited. Anti-dumping legislation should be enacted, providing at least for an additional customs duty equal to the differ-: ence between the invoice price for export and the fair home market value in the exporting country. A certain portion of the excess profits duty now taken by the government should be placed to reserve for the purchase and holding of trading stocks after the war. Repayment of excess profits in recoupment of later losses or deficiencies should operate over a period of at least- four years instead of two years, as at present' " We have had no chamber of. commerce in this country that would hazard a forecast of what is likely to develop in trade after the war, but the Birmingham report is interesting in view of the fact that it fits a situation like in character in this country such as is de scribed. Our munition contracts will be can celled; there will be a shortage of ship ton nage, but it will not be serious and will be quickly remedied; we will have no lack of railroad facilities, nor will there be any breakdown in railroad stock: there should be no serious dislocation of trade during "demobilization," as it is called, but there will probably be a considerable shifting of indus try from, war to a peace basis. The peace industries are being utterly neglected now and it is reasonable to deduce that the de mand for their production will be such as to take the place of the war demands of the present day. In other words we do not be lieve the United States will be in nearly as serious a position as England is described by the Birmingham business men, who are evidently feeling much more seriously than we the weight of their four years of war, while we have been in it no more than a year and a half. As to the oroDosed reme dies, we shall need few'of them, and we'ean rely on American enterprise to quickly read just itself to the new conditions and find new avenues of trade. We are fortified by SZ.000,000,000 of the world's gold that came to us before the war, the allies owe us fully ?0,000,000,000 besides and our resources in raw materials, which they will need in abun dance, are nearly limitless, while the trade of the Orient, South America and India will find us in the forefront in competition for it. Even though we are advantageously situated, however, it behooves us to study these prob lems and the Birmingham Chamber of Com merce has done a timely service to recall them. Hail the W estern Booster A Type of Live Citizen Filled With Bubbling Optimism i Christian Science Monitor. One of the conspicuous features of the young arid growing western or middle-western town in the United States is the type of citizen known as the booster. The state ment, however, demands a certain qualifies tlon. The professional boomer often arrives before the town; or he appears upon the scene just when the streets and the pathways have been constructed, and the street names put up, and everything, in fact, is there for the purpose of the beginning of civic life ex cept the main essential,1 the houses. But it must not be supposed that the booster, whose purpose is to boost the "town " to "push" its merits, to show it to be the newest, the best, the mot up-to-date dwelling spot or site for factories, on the face of the globe, is "at all embarrassed by this trifling deficiency. No, on the contrary, the man who is to "push" jthe locality, so long as there is . lo cality to push, knows, or believes he knows, Mediaeval and Modem Pastor Drysander, founder of the German American jotirnal named the Peace Call published at Zurich, , in .Switzerland, has asked the German kaiser how many sons he has lost since the war. He goes even farthe and prints: "In the event therei have been no casualties in the imperial family, we de mand an immediate explanation." After publishing the inquiry and demand, both were sent by Pastor Drysander in a telegram ad dressed to the kaiser. The report concludes with the sentence: "Emperor William has not replied." He may be impressed as was that young mem ber of congress who, in the midst of a heated ineech during the reconstruction period, was asked if he had serwed as a soldier in the civil war. "Mr. Speaker," said he, "I am willing to answer all proper questions, but I do not want to be interrupted Dy mere tech nicalities." Pastor Drysander may not real ize that he has been highly technical, but from, the kaiser's point of view he must seem to be so. The kaiser longs to appear mediae val. He has approved the methods of At tilla, the Hun, with the exception of leading his troops into action, as Attilla did, or of placing any of his own flesh and blood in places of actual leadership which can be filled by captains, lieutenants and noncoms. The kaiser is mediaeval in war with these few exceptions, which, probably, he only reserves for the purpose of proving the rute. ; In mediaeval wars kings led their armies. Neblesse oblige I History shows us a long list of names of kings slam in battle. Harold of England fell at Hastings, James of Scot land at Flodden Field, Hardrada of Norway ta Stamford, Richa.d at Bosworth. The his tory of Germany shows a bright galaxy of names joi royal Germans lying with their boots on, at the front ot uattte lines. Before we condemn the kaiser utterly as an atavistic reversion, we must credit him and all of his princelings with that degree of modernity moving them to exercise the modern royal prerogative of staying behind and urging their men forward. For all practical intents and purposes in hard fighting the Hohenzol terns are onlv druUed for the war in class 23-Z. Let the record stand and mark the rating of all presumptuous royalty hereafter, not only m military, but political, lite. Louis Globe-Democrat St. that it has a golden future, which will not fail to cause those absent homes to spring out of the ground the rubbing of a modern Aladdin's lamp. There is hardly any end to the list of ob jects whicV a booster will boost. It may be a highway, or a county, a tract for irrigation or a site for mines. Then again, his book ing may take in a a. hole state and its indus tries, and, for the efficient conduct of his du ties, he may own or edit, or have at his beck and call a newspaper, or series of newspa pers. He may stump the country to en lighten the citizens, and mark his progress through the itate by atractive interviews in the paper, and by a regular press campaign. A wide-awake business man, the booster of that type, rides in a big touring car, wears kid gloves, has the finest house, the finest clothes and the finest office. . Morning, noon and night he booms the object to be boomed for all it is worth. He is 'well-mannered, al ways has a smile and knows the commercial value of an imperturbable temper and a true breezy, business air. If it be a town in which he is interested,, or, rather, to which he has determined to devote his superabund ant energy, and the arriving stranger be trays the slightest interest in it, the new comer is the object of his concentrated at tention till the hour of his departure. The booster whisks him off in his car to the hotel, then to the mayor, the town clerk and the president of the Board of Trade. Casually, quite casually, the stranger learns that a big, swelling pride animates his guide whenever he talks about the town. And he is never ti'ed of his pet theme. When the stranger has seen the "lay-out" of. the town and her.rd of all the things that have been done or are to be done within it, ui ought to be done when' ver the town gets the necessary approbation, when he has heard all about the sewering, the paving and the projected club house, the rush on the overcrowded "hotel," the' awful inadequacies of labor elsewhere and .the increase In the population during- the previous year; when he has mentally noted the factory facilities and the free grants of building sites, and has had it proved to him by incontrovertible facts and figures for what the town means to stand tilt the end of its civic days, and how every citizen is fully determined to make of the place the Empire or Pearl City of the West, then he begins to realize that the town and its aggregation of buoy, hustling, patriotic humanity is a living organism. He wants to have a stake in its precious soil, to be of that harny few upon whom fortune is about to bestow her most sunny smile. He buys. Then it is that the booster cautions the in terested, the fascinated, newcomer to "sit tight," waiting for the day when his prop erty will grow in value, when envious people will pursue him with offers to buy and he will smile and say nothing, until the day of days when he receives that Offer which will spell a life competence, and he willsell. After all, the boster is a reflex of the . e o' the west. In his exuberance, his aggres sive faith, there may often be a suggestion of boastfulness, of shrewd commercialism, of selfish interest, of the unfair deal. But there are boosters and boosters. Many there are who devote thoir lives, unsparingly and unselfishly. to- causes in which they have nothing to gain except the joy of achieve ment, but which place them Indubitably among the makers of the. modern west I TODAY One Year Ago Today In the War. -KuMo-Roumantan forces retired In Trotua valley, Southwest of Ocna.

You, lika a great many others in this country of ours, don't earn ta undnrntanil onnrtlttnna In in land very clearly or you would not ma&e ine statements you do. Up till eigni years ago i uvea in Ireland, and x inicK. Know just a uttie oi tne con ditlons there. There Is a great deal of talk In this country about how England mistreats Ireland. I read a couple of years ago a special article In a Chicago paper that was written by an ex-governor 6f one of our states, and amongst other things, he said "that a man in ireiana couia not own a farm, a house or even a horse value for 25 Shillings. SS tha TCnlich vnvarnmant would come along and relieve him of wem. wen, now, such talk as that is sciircely worth noticing, as anyone w. knows anything about Ireland knows that is absolutely false. I know scores of people who own large farms, fine homes and a score or more horses. . I want to say something about Irishmen and the war. In an edi- torla.1 a f O W ttraolr .01 imii MM rnA ' it ww9 i LI nt t v. aviuxs- thing about the unrest In Ireland, and you intimated that the Orangemen and nationalists were opposed to Eng land and a successful termination of the war. I don't think you are aware that there is at least 76 per cent of the Orangemen In the English army; in fact, Sir Edward Carson's volun. teers (Ulster volunteers), composed of Orangemen and Protestants, vol unteered to a man. You speak of that "glorious com pany (our allies) which awaits the presence of Ireland on the battleline." Is it possible you are so much in the dark as to think that Ireland is not there with thousands of its sons? My own brother has been in the thick of it since 1914, first in France, and now in Palestine. " What about the following regiments, which are composed of Irishmen, who have en listed voluntarily: Royal Irish Rjfles, Royal Inniskllling, Dublin and Mun ster Fusllliers, Connaught Rangers, Royal Irish regiment. Irish Guards, and as many cavalry regiments. Each of these regiments have from 6 to 20 Daiiauons, ana each battalion consists of 1,000 men. I would like it known that Ireland is not slacking on the war. I can give you names of at least 50 young men of my own acquaintance who are either killed, home wounded or are at the front today. I grant you there was an awful howl raised when con scription for Ireland was mentioned, but who raised the howl? I'll toil you it was the Catholic church, and it was made the subject on a special Sunday In every Catholic church. Everyone knows that this church has been straining every effort to get "home rule" tor Ireland, but we who have lived there know it is not home rule it wants, but Rome rule. And today the only part of Ireland op posed to the war as a whole is the south and west, which is dominated by the Catholic church. What Ireland needs today more than anything else Is, not fredom from the English yoke (?), but freedom from the Church of Rome. We all know that Ulster is the most prosperous part of Ireland today.
