President and Peace Meeting
- if here has long been talk of the possibility
.bf the president's going to the peace conference.
The matter has now reached the stage where it
is under serious consideration at Washington.
Mr. Wilson's personal opinion is understood to
be adverse to the project This is easy to un
derstand. There would be grave practical diffi
culties in the president's absenting himself from
- the country for any length of time.- And the
peace conference is apt to prove a prolonged
affair. Indeed, the strong probability is that it
will not be able to comolete the huee work be
fore it in plenary sessions, but will have to ap-'
point commissions to study details, perhaps to
take charge of particular labors of admimstra-
- tion, for the timebeing, and later to report back.
Jf it were a question merely of the president's
being away for a few weeks there could be no
conclusive objection to his accepting an invita
tion to preside at the peace conference. But
if it involved months of absence the argument
would run heavily against his going. The af-
. fairs of government here could not so well be
conducted bv cable as could the American part
of -the negotiations at the peace .conference. And.
- even the president is not present in body, his
spirit will be there and dominant. This is per
fectly understood in Europe. The allies have
already bound themselves to make peace, on the
feneral terms which Mr. Wilson has laid down,
t is not necessary for him to go to sign them
in person. The written signatures, whatever
-they are, can never make "the historian forget
, the great part played by the president of the
Uaited States.-New .York Post ' ,
LISTEN TO LINCOLN. '
On this anniversary of the delivery of Lin
coln's Immortal address at Gettysburg it will be
well to review the advice he then, gave his coun
trymen. While intended for the great ques
tions that then vexed the nation, that address
contains thoughts that may apply to the present
condition. To bind up the wounds of war, to
carry forward the work of the soldiers in estab
lishing liberty, is just as important now as hen.
It was to this task Lincoln adjured the livingto
dedicate themselves, that the dead might not
have died in vain. A similar task confronts us,
and the world, and the future demands the de
votion of our utmost endeavor for the right.
No selfish cause or class interest must be per
mitted to turn the current of victory into priv
ilege for a few. Forbearance is required of all,
but not to the point where any will forfeit full
share in the great opportunity that is now open
ing for everybody. Old things are cast aside
along with old ways, but the new must not be
distorted or Jwisted into special application for
the advantage of cfass, above or below, or in the
middle. A square deal, a fair chance for every
body, anj "government of the people, for the
people and by the people shall not perish from
End of Germany's Sea Power.
How completely Germany is beaten is illus
trated by the surrender of its navy. In, no other
way could this be made so clear, even to the
Germans themselves. Von Hindenburg and the
great army laid down arms and started for
home, defeated in battle and rendered harmless
in surrender. They had fought for four years,
with stubbornness and skill, only to be overcome
at last by a jetter directed force. All this time
the navy, on which so much thought and money
have been lavished, the great instrument by
which England was to be stricken and brought
to subjection, remained inactive behind the har
bor defenses at either end of the Kiel canal.
The Dresden, the Emden, the Scharnhorst, the
Gueisenau the Eitel Friederich and one or two
other cruisers' played havoc with commerce for
a short time on the high seas, but soon were
hunted down. A sortie, terminating in the bat
tle of Jutland, in which the Germans were
sorely defeated, comprises the activity of the
great navy on which the kaiser rested one col
umn of his triumphal arch. Its inglorious end
ing is accentuated by the scourge of the U-boat,
set upon the world to bring about a victory in
which terror should be the deciding factor. No
color in all the kaiser's rainbow dream has
twrned a more vivid yellow than that of his navy.
Good Roads for Nebraska.
Good roads ought to mean roads that are
serviceable 365 days in a year, arjd such roads
can only be had through careful construction.
The Bee has preached this doctrine for many
years, and still believes it. In Nebraska large
sums of money are wasted every year in repair
ing roads that are not more than 50 per cent
serviceable. Ordinary highway construction
does not produce permanence, and is costly
even at its best, for too much power is needed
to haul loads over it. All this is well known to
everyone who has given the matter serious at
tention. The state authorities sanction a standard
road to be constructed of a mixture of sand and
clay, because the material is cheap and plenti
ful and permits of easy manipulation. This was
brought out as a makeshift to enable the state
to get in under the federal good roads law. It
may comply with the letter, but hardly will ful
fill the spirit of that law, for it is far from
demonstrated that such a, road is a "good" one,
even in the ordinary acceptance of the term.
Farmers of Nebraska are: the greater users
of the highways of the state; they save or waste
according to the service they get from the roads
they build to maintain. For many years they
have paid from twice to three times as much as
they should for hauling their produce to market
and their supplies back to the farm. In this
regard they are not progressive.
The question of good roads will be presented
to the coming legislature in a practical way; it
will deservemore attention than was accorded it
by the last assembly, when it was given simply
the consideration that would avert loss of the
federal contribution to the construction fund.
Members of the next legislature will serve both
themselves and ihe state if they will now make
even a cursory examination of the problem and
be ready to deal with it from an understanding
point of view. . . x
War and the Plague.
V First thoughts of war almost invariably
turn on loss of life incident to conflict of armies.
The death roll here is always impressive, fre
quently, magnified through vain imagination,
but remaining to the end a convincing evidence
i man's innate savagery. Such thoughts ex
clude a fact that is entitled to far more consid
eration than it ever gets that death is the por
tion of all. Moreover, now that the fighting in
France has ceased, the relation between the war
and the plague is coming to be considered
Whatever the rause, whether it be from dis
turbance of the nutrition of the people because
of carelessness growing out of war excitement,
or for any other reason, a pandemic has pre
vailed, and its death toll has been in the United
States practically double that exacted by the
war. Almost, if not quite, as many" men died
in training' camps here as laid down their lives
in battle abroad, while the number of civilians
who succumbed to ih- "flu" is greater than
either. And the war is over, while the disease
daily adds, to its victims. No comfort can be
had from this, unless it be that men of science
are striving with utmost endeavor to discover
means for checking the scourge. The only
I lesson is that war, terrible as it may be made,
holds scarcely more of danger than follows man
in his most peaceful seclusion.

Lincoln's Gettysburg Address
November 19, 1863.
Four score and seven years ago our fath
ers brought iorth on this continent a new na
tion, conceived in liberty and dedicated to
the proposition that all men are created
equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil
war, testing whether that nation, or any na
tion so conceived and so dedicated, can long
We are met on a great battlefield of that
war. We have come to dedicate a portion
of that field as a final resting place for those
who here gave their lives that that nation'
might live. It is altogether fitting and
proper that we should do this. But, in a
larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot
consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground.
The brave men, living and deadu who
struggled here have consecrated it far above
our poor power to add or detract. The world
will little note, nor long remember, what we
say here, but it can never forget what they
did here. It is for us the living, rather, to
be dedicated here to the unfinished work
which they who fought here have thus far so
nobly advanced. It israther forv us to be
here dedicated to the great task remaining
before us; that from these honored dead we
take increased devotion to that cause for
which they gave the last full measure of de
votion; that we here highly resolve that these
dead shall not have died in vain; that this na
tion, under God, shall have a new birth of
freedom, and that government of the people,
by the people, for the people shall not perish
from the earth.
Bills Germany Must Pay
Philadelphia Public Ledger.
Two main objects led Germany to launch the
campaign of unrestricted submarine, warfare
even at the risk of bringing the United States
into the conflict. The more obvious, of course,
was to starve out England and prevent the
transportation of its troops and supplies. The
other, of secondary importance while the war
lasted, was to pave the way for gaining commer
cial supremacy when the war was over. The
first object has been defeated, but the second
can yet be achieved if the allies permit them
selves to be persuaded by casuistic pleas for
generosity to a beaten foe. The sinking of en
emy, tonnage is of course a legitimate war meas
ure, though Germany made it illegitimate by
destroying life as well. But the sinking of neu
tral tonnage is a breach of international law,
whether lives are lost or not. Germany did this
for no other purpose than to wipe out commer
cial rivals. Thus Norway is its chief rival- in
the shipping business among all the neutrals,
and Norwegian ships have suffered more than
any other. The war was from the first a busi
ness enterprise on Germany's part, and this line
was to be one of the most profitable.
The allies have the first claim on German
shipping. None others should be admitted until
theirs is satisfied. In the armistice with Austria
a surrender of the Austrian navy is provided
for, and nothing less can be asked of Germany.
But Germany has a large merchant marine,
partly interned in neutral countries, partly safe
in its own ports, partly taken over by the allied
countries. In ordinary circumstances all its
ships would be returned to it after the war, with
payment for their use if they had been used, or
for their purchase if it was desired to buy them.
We have under the American flag a large Ger
man fleet for which Germany has the right to
ask an equivalent in money. Without denying
that right, we shall have also a right to deduct
from the debt full compensation for all the
losses inflicted by Germany upon allied com
merce. All the allied nations will have the same
right. It may be that all the German , tonnage
now in allied or neutral hands will not Suffice to
pay the bill. Yet the demand of ship for ship,
just as it is, will hardly be pressed to the extent
of leaving Germany with no means to work out
the heavy indemnity which will presumably be
Exacted from it.
' That the neutrals should now be making out
their bills is not surprising. That of Norway
is an especially heavy one. Nearly 900 of its
ships have been, sunk by German submarines
with a tremendous loss of life. Holland, Swe
den, Denmark and Spain have all Suffered,
though in less measure. The Norwegian claim
comes first, however, not merely because it is
the largest, but because the other neutrals have
served Germany more or less at the expense of
the allies. Denmark is excusable, perhaps, since
it had no power to resist. But Holland has
played a callous game throughout, and Sweden's
pro-Germanism has been flagrant and manifest.
As for Spain, though it protested at latf, and
has compelled Germany to turn over seven ves
sels interned in Spanish ports as partial pay
ment for damages, its course has been timid, to
say the least, and it ought to take ,its chances
after more imperative claims have been satisfied.
The nations that have borne the burden of mak
ing the seas safe again must be served first.

The Ejaiser as a Sidestepper
- Readers ot the "Willy" and "Nicky" corre
spondence will remember that back in 1905,
when Russia was;ompelled to make peace with
Japan, "Willy" telegraphed to "Nicky" suggest
ing that he sidestep the responsibility of a dis
advantageous and humiliating peace by putting
it up to the Duma representatives to adopt what
was practically worked out for them at Plym
outh and let the people's representatives bear
all the odium which might ultimately result
therefrom. That would lead the people to think
that their own representatives had , betrayed
them and incline them to turn to "Nicky" again.
This may be the policy which the kaiser is
trying to adopt now. He is loading up the
Reichstag, by his own will, with the responsi
bility of extricating the German nation from the
humiliating position to which it has been re
duced. Matters are going from bad to worse
and when the revolution comes and the govern
ment is overthrown, the kaiser will hope to be
able, as he advised "Nicky" to lay the blame
upon the Reichstag, throw out his chest-and
offer himself as the only savior of the German
rition. ! fk ,
And who shall say that the iSerman people
are not stupid enough in their blind devotion to
a domineering spirit like the kaiser to accept
him again as their leader and give him the sup
port which he would require to retain his place
arid influence as the head of the empire. There
might be some pretended political reform, but
the kaiser would still possess the substance of
power. Minneapolis Tribune. "

THE SERVICE STAR.
The service star in the window,
I must change from blue to gold
That those who look when passing
, Will know my story's told.
But they cannot see the heartache,
Nor the tears that fall like rain.
For my boy la dead, he's a memory,
He'll never come back again.
Some die on the fileds of battle.
Where the blood la deep and red;
Some die in the great cantonments
Before they are sent ahead.
But each dies at his post of duty
As he bravely does his bit.
So sleep In peace my soldier lad
In your, suit of khaki hue;
Tou answered the call of your country,
And all honor is due to you.
The service star In the window
Made of red, white and blue,
Meant mother anxiously waiting,
For the boy she loved so true.
But now the star Is yellow
Like the gold in her weddjng ring
And mother's heart Is breaking.
For death ever has Its sting.
