New Date for Thanksgiving
It is inevitable that Armistice day should
henceforth be widely observed in 'this country
and in every other one of the countries allied
against the central empires. Its observance may
quite conceivably extend even to some of the
neutral countries. It will become an interna
tional holiday, if it does not become absolutely
a world holiday.
Under the circumstances why should not the
United States make a first move by declaring
the day a national holiday of thanksgiving in
substitution, if necessary, for the present
Thanksgiving day nbw celebrated on the last
Thursday of November? The shift in dates
involved would not be of material importance.
Thanksgiving was set late in November when
we were essentially an agricultural people, and
the housing of the crops was a matter of para
mount national significance. Of course, the
successful garnering of the season's produce is
really a matter of as vital importance as ever,
but comparatively few of the people of the na
tion think much about it on Thanksgtving day,
and those that do could be quite as thankful on
November 11 as . they could two weeks later.
We are inclined to the belief that a change in
date in recognition of an event for which we
will forever be most grateful would serve to
give new and vital significance to an annual oc
casion now too often- only perfunctorily ob
served or else made purely an occasion for
merry-making. Detroit Free Press.
, Ml I .
The strike of the street car men in Omaha
is furnishing a conspicuous example of bad labor
leadership-leadership of the kind that is detri
mental to, if not subversive of, the real interests
of organized labor.
It was bad enough to call a walkout at
3 o'clock in the morning without notice or
warning to the thousands of fellow wage
earners depending on the street cars to take
them to their places of work.
It was still worse to flout the War Labor
board, to whom the men had previously ap
pealed and through whose hands they had se
cured substantial wage concessions which they
were enjoying.
Whatever sympathy that naturally goes out
to the laborer in all such cases might have been
with the men at the beginning is evaporating
because of this indefensible action. The sophis
try by which the international organizer seeks
to avoid responsibility is unworthy even of a
lost cause. That award was accepted m good
faith by the men who benefited through it. If
they later formed themselves into a union, they
did not thereby change their status, so far as
their moral obligation is concerned, and
it will take some tine hair-splitting to relieve
them of the legal obligation entailed. They
took the increase in wages and other forms of
relief, and are equally held to tlie provision that
requires continuous operation of the cars.
The Bee feels that it can speak thus plainly
as a friend of organized labor because we our
selves deal with labor in a collective capacity
and have no objection whatever to collective
bargaining with any union of skilled mechanics
fully able to furnish the competent workmen re
quired and proved responsibility for iiving up to
agreements. But how can any so-called union
hope to command the confidence needful for an
agreement to which both sides will be bound if
its leaders repudiate a finding such as the car
men secured from the War Labor board while
holding the other party to its terms? Would the
proposed union contract now demanded be as
worthless when it came to fulfillment of obliga
tions by them as the War board's award? Sup
pose car company officials undertook to violate
that award and to hide behind a quibble in doing
so, what a call would quickly come rightful
and righteous for discilpine or punishment?
In saying this, we hold no brief for the street
railway company. Whatever shortcomings may
be charged against it in its treatment of its men
should have prompt remedy whenever proved,
and the demands of the public, too, for better
service should be answered. To stop street car
service altogether, however, as the strikers have
done, regardless of every legal and moral obli
gation to carry out the war board's finding, is
sure to react on organized labor as a whole,
which in final analysis is always the chief suf
ferer from bad labor leadership.
Berlin and the Bolsheviki.
Allied and American troops are to be used
as police in Berlin in an effort to check disorder
there. It is of concern to the world that Ger
many be preserved if possible from the chaos
into which Russia has fallen. Ebert, Schiede
nian and their associates do not seem to be
strong enough to establish the republic they
aimed at, while Liebknecht is gaining new
strength for hig program of destruction each
day. What part the junkers are playing in this
is not clear. Each side accuses the other of
having the active assistance of that element
which would most advantage through the fail
ure to establish popular government. The one,
fortunate circumstance is that soldiers of strong
governments can be put on guard in time to
check any such outbreaks as followed the end
of the czar's government in Russia. Lenine
and Trotzky were out of reach at that time and
worked their will practically without interfer
ence. Liebknecht and his crew cannot achieve
such results unhindered. Berlin ought to be
saved from the bolsheviki, if for no other reason
than that the German people may be made not
only self-supporting, but placed in a position
to pay the fines that will be laid against them.
Wrecking the government would only post
pone the ends of justice.
Interstate Commerce Commission's Views.
The suggestions and recommendations con
tained in the report of theTnterstate Commerce
commission indicate a sane view of the trans
portation problem. Summed up, they admit
that the policy of the past was a mistaken one,
and whether the railroads be returned to their
former owners or be retained by the govern
ment, rules formerly laid down for their opera
tion should never again be enforced.
If a single year of experience, has been suffi
cient to convince the federal authorities of the
correctness of most of what the railroad man
agers asked for, the experiment has been well
worth while. It will not have the effect of
turning the country over to the tender mercies
of a greedy combination of corporations, but it
will prevent the commission of another such
blunder as that which required the Union Pacific
to withdraw entirely from ownership of the
Central Pacific, turning that line over to the
Southern Pacific, the court upholding the fiction
that the Union and Central lines were com
petitors instead of being integral parts of what
should be a unified whole.
Effects of that amazing decision cannot now
be overcome, but the commerce of the country
can be relieved from serious burdens by the
adoption of rules to continue in a more sensible
way the co-operation made ppssible under the
forcible pooling brought about by the federal
Right in the Spotlight.
Count Ottokar Czernin, mentioned
as one of those likely to be brought
to trial by the Vienna government
as having been responsible for the
war, held the post of foreign minis
ter under the late Austro-Hungarian
government. In the events that led
up to the war he played no inconsid
erable part, having acted as first ad
viser to the embassy at Petrograd
during the Balkan wars and direct
ing its business much of the time
during the absence of the ambassa
dor. Some three months after the
signing of the treaty of Bucharest
he was appointed to represent Austria-Hungary
in the Roumanian cap
ital and the role he played from that
time until Roumania's intervention
is now a matter of common knowl
edge. Count Czernin belongs to the
Bohemian conservative aristocracy.
He was numbered among the inti
mate friends of the Archduke Franz
Ferdinand and also enjoyed he con
fidence of Emperor Carl.

Storyette of the Day.
Representative Reavis of Ne

to the front.
"I witnessed a mild quarrel at the
front," he said, "between two young
chaplains of different denominations.
The senior chaplain got the better
pf the quarrel.
" 'Let us bury the hatchet, my
brother,' he said. 'After all, we are
both doing the Lord's work, -are
we not?'
"'We certainly are, said the junior
chaplain, quite disarmed.
'"Let us, therefore,' said the sen
ior suavely, 'do it to the best of our
abilitv, you in your wav and I in
His.' "
In Process of Cooling Out.
The Bee is daily receiving letters, some

one or another of the different phases of life.

roundly abuses The Bee because of its failure
to endorse socialism; a third goes after the au
thorise for permitting Germans to use the tele
phone, and so on through the pile. It is proba
ble that our experience is that of many other
newspapers. It is a manifestation of uneasi
ness on part of the people, which itself may be
accepted as indicating a "coolingKiut" process.
The whole nation was aroused to a higTl emo

normal condition without providing some vent
for the heated passions. If this can be worked
off through the writing of letters to newspapers,
well and good. The relief is 'what is most

Washington Correspondent Philadelphia Ledger.
Washington's armchair army is anxious to
quit the job now that the war has been so gal
lantly won. Uncle Joe Cannon once said of
some of these officers that they wore spurs to"
keep their feet from slipping off their desks.
It is said no fewer than 1,800 officers in the
ordnance department stationed in and around
Washington have tendered their resignations
since the signing of the armistice last Sunday.
A great many of these officers, expert in their
line, gave up 1 igh-salaried positions to don the
khaki when the war was the only thing in life
worth considering and when the uniform car
ried with it the homage of a grateful people.
Now the men who make up the ordnance de
partment are desirious of getting back into
civil life as fast as they can go. But they are
up against a snag. None of the resignations has
been accepted and none will be until the con
struction plans have been thoroughly digested
and until the need for the officers no longer
In other words, no officer of the army is to
be allowed to quit at tins time just because he
wants to. Most of the officers taken on the
staffs here in Washington used every sort of
"pull" to get their commissions, and now that
they have them they are finding it not an easy
matter to let them go. The ordnance depart
ment has much 'work to do in 'the next six
months or a year. It is almost as difficult a
matter to get away from the routine of war as
it was to get into it.
Officers of the newly formed motor trans
port corps are likely to be among the very last
discharged from the army. Transport work is
in full swing in France today as the American
army sweeps forward to the Rhine to occupy
the territory given up by the Germans under
the terms of the armistice. The supplysupport
of the army must be maintained at a high state
of efficiency, not only while the men continue in
the field, but until the very last unit is em
barked for home.
Even then the motor transport corps may
hold a very large detachment of men and trucks
in France and Belgium for the reconstruction
period. France and Belgium are depending
upon the United States for physical as well as
financial assistance in rebuilding thosV devas
tated countries, and transport facilities will be
needed for a long time to come.
Many officers in other branches of the serv
ice applied only recently for transfer to the
motor corps, for they saw in it a chance to get
early service abroad. In this they were right,
but I hear now that some of them may be kept
in the army as long as four or five years after
the signing of the treaty of peace. There will
be many who wish to remain, however, and it
is probable the problem of letting the unwilling
go as early as possible will be worked out in
due time to the satisfaction of everyone.
There is no chance at this time, however, for
the blanket acceptance of resignations, espe
cially among the young men who were in the
first and second drafts and were commissioned
without serving any time in the ranks.
Senators, representatives, cabinet officials
and War department officers have been fairly
deluged the last few days with requests for the
early discharge of individual enlisted men from
the army, especially those who have seen ser
vice abroad.
Many requests are extremely reasonable.
They came from dependent mothers, fathers or
sisters, who for patriotic reasons waived their
dependency when they left the country needed
every available man to fight back the Hun and
bring victory to the American and allied peo
ples. But now the war is over they are anxious
to get their sons, husbands and brothers out of
the army and back into civil life, where they
can earn sufficient money to bring back some
of the pre-war comforts to their homes.
It is impossible, however, the War depart
ment declares, to grant these individual re
quests, for the moment such a policy was
adopted the pressure for discharges would be
come so great that units would have to bfi
broken up abroad and men brought home as
passengers on ships without any sort of organi
zation to keep them together. In bringing the
army home in orderly fashion it is necessary
that companies, battalions, regiments, brigades
and divisions be kept as nearly intact as pos
sible. This will mean an organized return of
the forces from overseas. To adopt any othef
program would mean. disorganization and dis
order. Every mother or father who has made a
request for the return of a son naturally re
gards it as a very small matter to grant their
particular request. It is true the early return of
one or two men would not disrupt the general
scheme. . But there are thousands of such re
quests already and likely to be thousands more,
and the department feels it would be folly to
embark upon such a practice.
The Kaiser as a Bluffer
The collapse of the German empire carries
with it a lesson that Americans can afford to
profit by, for a belief in the efficacy of bluff is
one of our besetting sins. Useful it may be at
the poker table and sometimes at the critical or
emotional turns of life, but to rely on it as a
regular means of livelihood is to court inevi
table disaster. And when we hear it said of an
expert bluffer that "he gets away with it" even
as the burglar with the plate we may be rea
sonably sure of that bluffer's finish.
For years the kaiser, to employ the idiom of
the unthinking, "got away with it" as has no
other bluffer, gentle or common, of allhis con
temporaries. The efforts of the various sover
eigns and statesmen associated with him in his
criminal career were transparent and ineffect
ive in comparison. On his own blasphemous
assumption that the Supreme Being was his
partner in crime, looking with the eye of ap
proval on his reckless violations of every one of
the divine commands, he erected the hollow
pyramid of vain pretense that came crashing

Among the ruins may be discovered the broken
fragments of his financial, food and "unconquer
able army" bluffs. The "divine right of kings"
bluff has been smashed to smithereens, to quote
from the Irish lexicon.
It is gratifying to know that our own nation
was instrumental in calling this monumental
bluff. We can profit still further if we take
heed of the serm that it preaches. New York-Herald.

The war is over abroad, but war persists in
some sections of the homeland. No sign of
peace appears in the theatrical "no man's land"

skinning pleasure-seekers as ruthlessly as Hun

touch them not. Fully 80 per cent of theater
tickets sold in the city pass through the hands
of middlemen.
Loyalists in Minneapolis narrowly escaped
a rout in the drive against the re-election of
Mayor Van Lear. Since the United States en

I'l-b in the War.
Omaha, lv-. 5. To the Editor of
The Bee: It is possible, perhaps prob
able, but n..t cn-tain, that tho critics
or traducers ut the Irish race can
be convince,! that the Irish will
fight. The harne is preposterous,
nevertheless ou. assertion has been
made that the lighting rare did not
participate ! any extent in the war.
True, there were no Irish in the
(ierman and Austrian tirmies, al
though it was an old Kenian, John C.
Holland, who invented the submar
ine. The accusation is not made
against the Irish-American. The late
unpleasantness added another star
to his credit - an even half dozen,
towit: the Revolution, the War of
1812. Mexican war, eivl! war, Spanish-American,
r.uiopean war.
There is much in common between
the labor (lass and the Irish strug
gling for freedom, therefore, 1 will
cite a few extracts from statements
made to a writer in the Chicago
Labor News by Captain Thomas K.
McMahon of the Irish Cuards, who
has been throagh the hell of war
fare. As a memento of one of the
battles a piece of bis skull was torn
away. Recently he was with the
British and Canadian recruiting
mission at Chicago, lie said:
''It's a pity some of you Ameri
can newspaper men were not with
the forces m the first couple of years
of the. war, close up, where you
could diH the stories lirst hand, and
not after they had filtered through.
There would be something worth
writing about.
"When the war hesan Ireland sent
into the fighting zone some fifteen
regiments distinctively Irish from all
the four provinces. And as the war
developed there were tho London
Irish, Liverpool Irish. Tynesldo Irish
and in the Seoth, Welsh and Eng
lish regiments were many more
"Then there came from overseas
some regiments like the Vancouver
Irish fusileers, the Quebec Irish, a
South African Irish regiment, and
from Australia came others, some
50 per cent of the men from there
being of that race; and we had
thousands in the navy.
"We raised the Tenth, the Six
teenth and the Thirty-sixth Irish
divisions, and we sent thousands
across to keep up tho strength of
our units. Yet a few days ago I read
in a paper that Ireland had contri
buted but 10 per cent of soldiers.
"Official figures available show
that up to January last Erin had
contributed 58 per cent of her avail
able man power. Now these figures
mean only the men who were listed
following a military census. It does
not include the men who were in
the English army and navy when the
war broke out.
"Nor does it include those Irish
men working in Britain who swelled
the ranks of the units across the
channel, men who if at home would
have gone into the Irish regiments.
And they were all volunteers."
Captain McMahon said, "All over
the Belgian-French field they fought.
In Italy they have been helping to
stem the Austrian tide. ThCy were
in the thick of the Dardanelles
Gallipoll slaughter. They foutrht at
Saloniki, helped chase the Turks

ting too far ahead without support.
They were the Second Leinsters and

A while ago there was an editorial
in The Bee about the valor of the
Inniskillings. The foregoing sketch
about what the Irish have done
towards the freedom of others is
self-explanatory of the justice of
their own claim for emancipation.
Every thing is revealed by time
