"GOOD ROADS FOR NEBRASKA.
Advocates of good roads are to hold a meet
ing in Omaha, from which may come definite
ideas for the improvement of state highways.
Some of the delegates have no illusions as to
the extent of the task they have set about. First
of all, they will have to stir the farmers of the
state from their inertia on the topic. This will
be possible only through a thorough campaign
of education. It will be time wasted to go be
fore the legislature, asking for a large sum of
money, unless the request be based an a
definite, comprehensive program, one capable
of accomplishment and promising good for all.
Good roads will not come to Nebraska until the
men who most use the highways are convinced
of the benefit to be derived from a road that is
of service 365 days in the year. That is the
problem briefly stated. If the convention here
will bring nearer an approach to the solution its
time will not be spent in vain. The state must
come to some conclusion on this important
question some time, and now is none too soon
to get fairly started.
Freedom of the Seas.
Preliminary to the sittings of the peace
council some desultory discussion of freedom of
the seas is being had, the purpose being to de
velop views to a point where accommodation
may be made possible. This will remind Amer
icans of the fact that a serious discussion of the
whole question between Great Britain and the
United States was adjourned by the abrupt en
trance of this country' into the war. A some
what related debate had been going on with
Germany, it being terminated in a similar way
without a conclusion being reached as to the
merits of the points in dispute.
The convention of London was intended to
cover the rights of neutrals, and to fairly out
line a course of procedure under which these
would be conserved. Exigencies of the conflict
seemed to place the belligerents equally at a
disadvantage. To overcome this the British
"order in council" was substituted in Heu of cer
tain sections of the London convention, while
the U-boat was Germany's answer. In both
cases the question arose over the so-called "con
structive blockade." It was admitted by all that
a blockade to be legal must be effective, but the
warring nations claimed the right to intercept
neutral traffic anywhere, Germany finally pre
scribing a zone in which all sea traffic would be
forbidden, as well as conditions under which
neutral shipping might proceed 'with possible
Settlement of this issue w-ill not be reached
off-hand. Established regulations, such as the
right of visit and search, the destruction or con
fiscation of contraband, the safety of noncom
batants and other such provisions will not be
distrubed. But the general right of a country
at war to interfere with all ocean travel at its
own pleasure or to own advantage is certain to
be dealt with in detail, y
Restoring Destroyed France.
Twenty years of labor by 100,000 men will
be required to restore the damage of war iti
northern France, according to Stephen Lau
sanne. In a material sense this estimate seems
low enough. Much of what was so ruthelssly de
molished there can never be restored; yet
around the ruins will exist a sanctity beyond
anything years could impart. What is left by the
ravages of war will ever be a memorial to the
brave dead who gave their lives to the preserva
tion of a lofty ideal, whefee sublimity will in
crease with passing days and inspire freemen
throughout all time.
Restoration of the home life and the indus
try of the devastated region will be a slow pro
cess, but as nature clothes the pulverized soil of
the battlefields with verdure, covering the scars
of war with a jnantle of green, so the healing in
fluence of time will set its'benison on the peo
ple, and they will look ahead and not back, find
ing in the promise of the years to come a solace
for the nightmare they have just emerged from.
France will be not less brave in peace than in
conflict, and the new life will be stronger and
cleaner and of greater service because of the
trials it has undergone.
t Twenty years or forty, the labor of an hun
dred thousand, or many additional thousands,
may be needed to give back the outward evi
dences of material growth, but the spirit of
France, purified and strengthened, comes to the
task uplifted by adversity overcome and justice
maintained, and the work will be accomplished.
Part of Pershing's Problem.
One of the overlooked phases of the problem
of stopping the war is brought to view by a
statement from General Pershing. It has to do
with the reversal of the process whereby he was
accumulating subsistence and other material for
the use of his army in Europe. Most Americans
have conceived the notion that everything the
army was to use went over' from this side. It
now transpires that in stores the Pershing forces
have 10,000,000 tons of supplies purchased in
Europe, and extensive contracts that must be
readjusted. This enormous quantity of sup
plies is referred to now only to illustrate some
thing of the magnitude of the general operations
of the war. It is not merely the disposal of
2,0rX),000 men that is concerned in the demobili
zation of the army, but dealing with the supplies
on hand. Army business methods were never
so tested as in making provision for the expedi
tionary force, and will not likely encounter a
greater trial than in the more delicate job of
bringing the machine to a standstill. j
Seizure of the wireless is justified on the
theory that the government should have a
monopoly of all such means of communication.
What do some of the democratic champions of
free and unlimited competition say as to this?

a good deal in headlines. It is impossible to
dissociate him from the British army. On Sep
m P;M Vfirsimt llnior in an order of the
day thanked it for its valor and devotion:
"The capture of 75,000 prisoners and 750
guns in the course of four weeks'fighting speaks
for the magnitude of your efforts and the mag
nificence of your achievement."
For once D. Haig so he signs his name
showed more emotion than was ever wrung
from him before by success or failure., "We
have passed through many dark days," he said
in the address to his troops. "Please God,
these never will return." This great soldier, for
such he is, goes to a little Presbyterian church
behind the lines every Sunday morning, and
when he speaks of the name of God, which is
f'dom, lest his piety seem ostentatious, it is
s h reverence. One of those dark days was
April 12 of the present year, when the British
army was fighting for its life in the Ypres sec
tor, where it had bled so much, but always in
domitably. Sir Douglas Haig then issued his
back-to-tlie-wall" order of the day:
"Many among us now are tired. To those
I would say that victory will belong to the side
which holds out the longest. The French army
is moving rapidly and in great force to our sup
port. There is no other course open to us but
to fight it out. Every position must be held to
the last man. There must be no retirement."
What has Sir Douglas Haig not done in his
four years and more in France that an accom
plished and intrepid soldier should do? With
Sir Horace Smith-Dorrien, this fellow corps
commander, he more than once saved the Brit
ish army on its retreat from Mons. Its histor
ian, Maj. Ernest W. Hamilton, says that 100
Victoria crosses were earned on that glorious
retirement for every one given. One-third of
thp exnpflitinnarv armv sleeo the lone sleep in
France. Smith-Dorrien, whose health broke
down under the strain, and Haig, the man of
iron, vied with each other in fighting rearguard
actions until flesh and blood could endure no
more. The escape of remnants of brigades bor
dered on the miraculous. "We shall have to
hold here for a while if we all die for it" said
Haig on one desperate occasion. The British
army was always holding on; every extrication
from the German development was like a tor
lorn hope. Smith-Dorrien, he of the eagle eye
and massive jaw, was never himself again. Haig,
who did not take his life so tragically, lived
through many dark days with gleams of glory.
The first Ypres was as touch-and-go a busi
ness as anything experienced in the retreat from
Mons. The Seventh division, 12,000 strong
when it left England, lost 336 officers out of 400,
and 9,664 men. On the darkest day, when all
seemed lost, down the Menin road galloped Sir
Douglas Haig and his smart escort of the Sev
teenth Lancers, shells falling thick about them,
to encourage the faltering troops for no other
reason, the general's place being behind the line.
On another day it was Cheluvethe stood on
a road in consultation with Sir John French,
who had given an order for the army to fall
back, when a courier rode up to say that the
Germans were retiring. Sir Chafles Fitzclar
ence, an Irish soldier, had thrown a Norfolk
battalion into a breach in the enemy's line and
turned the tide of battle. So critical was all
the Ypres fighting, so suddenly did shafts of
success pierce the, pall of defeat. Haig was Sir
John French's right arm, and when the veteran
retired the government, in naming the Scotch
man for supreme command, reflected the hope
of the army.
This Scotch gentleman, son of John Haig of
Ffamornie. in Fife, who commands 2,000,000
British and colonial troops, is in the prime of
life at 57, "tall, lithe, well knit," a consummate
horseman, fair of complexion, blue of eye, in
manner gracious, reserved, but kindly. "I have
rarely seen a masculine face so handsome and
yet so strong," says one who tried to interview
him. He shuns publicity. An industrious stu
dent of the profession of arms, it is said that he
never commanded a larger body of men than a
regiment in battle before the great war. The
influence of the genial duke of Cambridge se
cured him a commission after he had been re
jected for defective eyesight. Sir John French
saved him from drowning in the Modder river
in the Boer war. . "Lucky" Haig he has always
been called. He predicted the war with Ger
many in a letter to Field Marshal Sir Evelyn
Wood years ago. He has refused a peerage,
but is a knight of the prized Order of the This
tle. He has owed much to his aristocratic con
nections, but infinitely more to the virtues of
his race and to inherent soldierly qualities. He
has a keen sense of humor. He is never visibly
angry. Born in the purple and a favorite at
court and in Mayfair, he is a "soldiers' soldier."
There are many Haigs on the British army list,
but only one Sir Douglas. Modest and indiffer
ent to fame, he will be reckoned among the
great commanders of the greateswar in history.
A Famous Railroad Car
That railroad car, somewhere in France,
wherein a marshal of France read the fate of a
nation to German delegates seeking peace, is
likely to pass into history along with the Ap
pomattox apple tree. It is an unforgettable
picture in its simplicity and directness. When
General Foch entered the Versailles conference
he was described as entering alone, without
staff or attendants. The picture in the railroad
car is of a peace with this democratic straight
forwardness. The terms of the armistice are the essential
part of the negotiations. But simple physical
tacts take a more powerful hold upon a people's
imagination. And for the people of Germany,
as for the peoples of the world; now and in the
years to come, the unforgettable fact will be
that German delegates, through the petition of
their government, went to France to beg peace.
They who had been so arrogant crossed the line
blindfolded a routine military precaution, yet
not without its part in tha historic picture.
Since Henry IV, holy Roman emperor, went to
Canossa and waited in a court yard for a papal
absolution there has been no more utter and
'iumiliating act of submission by a great power.
That scene in a railroad car, with its import
and consequences, is the most wholesome event
;n the history of the German nation. May its
significance sink in and remain to warn and
humble. New York Tribune.

On the "Blue Sky" Law.
Omaha, Nov. 23. To the Editor
of The Bee: In your Letter Box
column I note that C. F. McGrew
asks that one of the first duties of
the Nebraska legislature be the in
vestigation of the Nebraska Railway
commission regarding the so-called
"blue sky" permits, granted to vari
ous stock-selling concerns which
have fleeced the people of the state
or Nebraska out of millions of dol
lars. The prcsept railway commls
sion has issued permits to corpora
tlons of various kinds who advertise
that they will pay stockholders a 7
per cent dividend on stock. In the
second place the railway commission
in administering the law permits
these concerns to use 20 per cent of
the money received from the stock
sales for promotion purposes. In
addition to this officers of these com.
pantes are drawing from 500 to
11.000 per month salaries.
The blue sky permits have been
given many of these stock-selling
concerns, and if the stockk had to
be sold on its merits in an open mar
ket would not bring 10 cents on the
dollar. Members or the railway
commission have admitted that a
permit helped the sale of these se
curities, the innocent investor believ
ing that a permit would not have
been issued unless the stock was
worth par value, fell for the divi
dend bait and bought the stock.
The so-called blue sky law in Ne
braska in its title says that it is an
"act to regulate the sale of stocks
and other securities," and provides
a penalty for not securing a permit.
This law was not framed for the pur
pose of protecting investors against
sale of fraudulent securities, but it
was placed on the statute books for
the sole purpose of protecting tvie
The stock broker under this law
does not have tb secure a permit;
he can sell his stocks or securities
without interference from the rail
way ommis8ion. I will. pay $50 to
any man in the state who can show
me where a broker has been mo
lested or arrested for selling securi
ties without securing a permit, and
for this reason alone it is class leg
islation, since this law exempts brok
ers. It was framed to protect the
broker and, therefore, is unconsti
tutional. One of the first acts of the coming
legislature should be to require each
executive officer of the state railway
commisislon to file an official bond
for the sum of $100,000 to protect
the people in the future.
