The Air Route to the Pole
Doubtless the proposed aeroplane expedition
to the North Pole is feasible in these days of
long voyages through the air. The plans of the
Aero club have been well worked out, but the
purposes of the intended exploration are not so
clear. Henry Woodhouse, a member of the
board of governors, says that "from a national
standpoint it is absolutely necessary to explore
and map all the land, island possessions and
waterways under the control of the United
Most of the islands and waterways in the
Arctic north of the American continent are
classified as British possessions, and Greenland
belongs to Denmark. It is only further west,
between Beaufort sea and the pole, that the
explorers could expect to find new lands in the
uncharted waters north of Alaska that would
properly come under control of the United
States. Of course, every bit of knowledge that
can be added to the store of human knowledge
is worth while, but in some cases the attendant
hardships outweigh the advantages. Great
Britain would hardly quarrel with us if we
should annex to Alaska some of the icebound
regions to the north, and the pole itself by
virtue of Peary's discovery is already American.
But he found there only a vast floating ocean
of ice with ho land in sight.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH OMAHA'S '
With the mayor, the superintendent of po
lice, the chief of police, the chief of detectives,
and the members of the detective force busily
"passing the buck," while minor crime is run
ning rampant, the Omaha police force seems
sadly in need of a complete overhauling. (
Scandal of serious nature has surrounded its
operations for weeks, until now a situation has
developed that threatens the efficiency of the
force. Mayor Smith says he is waiting for a
report from Superintendent Ringer on charges
that were made openly, reflecting on certain
unnamed members of the force. One officer
has been arrested on a charge of soliciting and
accepting bribes. .The chief of detectives has
publicly asserted that other detectives are dis
honest, and that he "has the goods on them."
S'uch allegations deserve immediate and full
Investigation. Inquiry should be rigid and com
plete, that the facts may be developed and the
innocence or guilt of all the men established.
Omaha can not afford to have the present con
When the present administration was
elected it was with the expectation that rumors
of graft, incompetency, favoritism, and other
wrongs in connection with the police depart
ment would be cleaned up. Instead, the turmoil
has increased. Efficiency is impossible when
the members of the force are at loggerheads
with the chiefs.
Something is plainly wrong. An effort to
locate the trouble and apply the remedy ought
to be. made.
Public and Parochial Schools.
Much of the discussion of the public or
parochial school question at the moment rests
on a misconception of their relation to the
state and a misapprehension of their relation
one to the other. The people of Nebraska,
in common with all patriotic' citizens, are de
termined that the first obligation of the schools
is to teach children to become good Americans.
They do not intend to risk a renewal of con
ditions that prevailed before the war. To avoid
this it is proposed to safeguard the source of
instruction, by providing for such supervision
or oversight of the schools as is necessary to
make certain that nothing is taught which
might directly or indirectly pervert Ameri
canism. Many parents desire that their children be
given religious as well as secular instruction.
Some are of the opinion that this can be carried
on simultaneously. Nebraska makes no dis
tinction in religions, but permits the freest prac
tice of any., Denominational schools of many
kinds thrive here, and parochial schools of va
rious sects are numerous.
No sound objection can be made to these as
such. It is unfortunate that in not a few in
stances schools were found that had departed
from their primary purposes, and in which dan
gerous doctrines were taught. Such practices,
we are told, have been corrected. It is plain
the people of Nebraskaj will never submit to
their being resumed.
Needed regulation of the schools should not
be undertaken in a spirit of hysteria or bigotry.
It is a political and not a , religious question.
The present legislature is made up, of men of
vision' sufficiently broad, of tolerant under
standing and sympathetic interest in the
schools to justify confidence in their approach
to the needed solution.
Vehement declamation on either side of the
question is not likely to sway the final judg
ment of the lawmakers, who will act for the
good of the state, and not with a view of aiding
or hampering one or another of the sects.
Woes of the Paris Tradesmen.
Accustomed to the presence of visitors whose
wealth does not ask the price, Paris shopkeep
ers are disappointed by the crowds attending
the peace conference. Four years of.stagnation
in all lines has whetted their taste (or the well
lined purse and they are tiptoe in eagerness to
pounce upon the foreign bank roll and reduce
its dimensions after the fashion they know so
well. They find hotels filled and streets
thronged with government employes, whose ex
pense accounts are carefully and in some cases
parsimoniously regulated. Instead of the ex
pected munitions profiteers the hotels entertain
stenographers, clerks and copyists. These may
long for, but will not purchase, the wonderful
creations that await buyers. It is all they can
do to get enough to eat. Soldiers and news
paper correspondents, who fringe the body of
peacemakers, long ago learned the value of
money by the simple process of earning it, and
they are not of the class that creates commo
tion among dressmakers or similar enterprises.
It is not a poverty-sticken lot that Paris is en
tertaining, but neither is it a gathering of spend
thrifts. From the highest to the lowest, they
are there on business, and are attending to their
own affairs. Meantime, they occupy hotel rooms
and feed at cafes where other customers might
be more welcome, and the thrifty citizens of the
center of fashion and frivolity will speed them
ou their way with some enthusiasm as they turn
to welcome the guests who come with ampler
purses on whose strings the knots are lax.
When the Packers Disagree.
One interesting phase of the meat packing
situation is disclosed in the accounts ofhear
ings before the congressional committees. Mr.
Armour is reported to have prepared a bill, em
bodying his ideas of governmental control,
which will be presented to congress: Mr. Mor
ris lays great emphasis on his opinion that the
government will do well to keep hands off. At
' the same time the food administration fixes a'
basic rate for hogs of $17.50 per hundred
weight for the month of February. The pack
ers frankly admit they dread a drop in prices,
as their storage rooms are crowded with meats
for which they have paid top figures. Here is
the only point of agreement between them' on
the main topic. In the meantime, the patient
public continues to pay for food at famine
prices with supplies in sight far beyond any of
late experience. It is not so much a question
of what "is needed as of how to do it, but the
puzzle is made the denser by the proceedings
Mr. Burleson, with charming frankness, says
he took over the wires to save them. A little
while ago he argued it was as a war measure. The
facts will come out some day, and will probably
be found that the postmaster general made the
grab because he thought the grabbing was good.
The Constitution During the
, War and Afterward.
By Henry Wollman, in the Annalist
- PART III Conclusion.
Is there any way to continue the national
food administration, so that it can regulate the
distribution, consumption, and price ot tood
stuffs? Could the coal administration, or any
part of it? be lawfully continued in times of
peace? I do not see how it can be done. Even
if the federal government had the power, 1 am
sure that the people of this republic would not
permit any such control to be exercised over
their business attairs and movements.
Unless one has watched it very carefully, he
would be surprised to see what the federal gov
ernment has been able to regulate and stop, un
der the interstate commerce clause of the con
stitution. I imagine that Alexander Hamilton,
if he could get out of his grave in Trinity
Church cemetery, at the head of Wall street,
might be not a little shocked to see the tederal
government, to the practical exclusion of the
states and municipalities, punishing people for
vending impure food. The interstate commerce
provision of the constitution is a marvelous
thing when an umbrella is needed for certain
federal legislation. The courts, at some future
time, might think it broad enough to let some
department in Washington tell us what we can
eat and what we can not eat that has been
shipped from one state to another state;
whether we can use pure wheat flour or must
use mixed floury how much we must pay or not
pay for coal mined in Pennsylvania and shipped
here, or whether we must,' on certain days, ab
stain from using coal mined in other states. I
hope not and believe not, but who can tell?
The question is now often agitated, Can the
United States absolutely confiscate the property
of alien enemies in this country? I do not
mean impound it and hold it or its proceeds for
the owner until the war is over, but keep it for
all time or use it in paying indemnity to be ex
acted from the government of the owner. A
government at war with another goverrrment,
unless prevented 'by an ante-bellum treaty, has
the strict legal right to retain as its own the
property of an alien enemy within its territory,
but modern ethics and practice are emphatically
adverse to that.
Chief Justice Marshall, America's greatest
jurist, in Brown against United States, 8
Cranch' 110, in deciding a case growing out of
the war of 1812 between the United States and
Great Britain, speaking for the United States
supreme court, said:
"The modern rule, then, would seem to be
that tangible property belong to an enemy and
found in the country at the commencement of
war, ought not to be immediately confiscated;
and in almost every commercial treaty an arti
cle is inserted stipulating for the right to with
draw such property.
"The constitution of the United States was
framed at a time when this rule, introduced by
commerce in favor of moderation and humanity,
was received throughout the civilized world.
"It is urged that, in executing the laws of
war, the executive may seize and the courts
condemn all property, which, according to the
modern laws of nations, is subject to confisca
tion, although it might require an act of the
legislature to justify the condemnation of that
property which, according to modern usage,
ought not to be confiscated.
"The rule, like other precepts of morality,
of .humanity, and even of wisdom, is addressed
to the judgment of the sovereign; and although
it cannot be disregarded by him without oblo
quy, yet it may be disregarded."
The United States supreme court, within
the last two months, rendered a unanimous
opinion, which says in effect to every court in
this country that our courts must guard with
the utmost care the rights of alien enemies
having property and interests in this country,
which, by reason of their absence in the enemy
territory, they are not here to protect.
In Watts, Watts & Co. against Unione Aus
triaca di Navigazione, etc., an Austrian corpor
ation, (Advance Sheets, Lawyers' Edition, No

"The respondent, although an alien enemy,
is, of course, entitled to defend before a judg
ment should be entered. It is now represented
by counsel. But intercourse is prohibited by
law between subjects of Austria-Hungary out
side the United States and persons in the
United States. We cannot say that, for the
proper conduct of the defense, consultation be
tween client and counsel and intercourse be
tween their respective countries may not be es
sential even at this stage. The war precludes
"Under these circumstances, we are of opin
ion that the decree dismissing the libel should
be set aside and the case remanded to the dis
trict court for further proceedings, but that no
action should be taken there (except such, if
any, as may be required to preserve the security
and the rights of the parties in statu quo)
until, by reason of the restoration of peace be
tween the United States and Austro-Hungary,
or otherwise, it may become possible for the
respondent to present its defense adequately."
The courts, during the war, did what it 'was
imperatively necessary that they should do, they
sustained all the laws and war measures that
were brought before them. It was a maxim
older than our constitution, that in the midst
of the strife of arms the laws are silent. But
now that the war is over and no danger is star
ing the government in the face, the courts will
examine, with their usual care, deliberation, and
impartiality, all questions growing out of the
war that shall be presented to them forMecision.
Etheric Poesy Or Prophecy?
If Marconi is a true prophet as well as a
great inventor, earth may yet do better than
hitch its wagon to a star. It may hold etheric
long-talk? with its fellow-wanderers iny space.
The wizard of the wireless admits in an inter
view his belief in this possibility. He has al
ready received in the course df his experiments,
he says, impulses- which may well have been
attempted signals from other planets. It is, of
course, not the first time that a scientist, hap
pening to be also something of a poet, has had
this dream of interplanetary communications.
And not for the first time will some portion of
the world laugh at the extravagance of such a
dream. Perhaps, nevertheless, the laughter will
fin this occasion be less general, 'less far-reaching
with its echoes. One remembers that since
the earlier jeering at visionaries who spoke of'
talking with the stars the radio telegraph and
telephone have come into being. The air has
begun to give up its mysteries, to reveal its
hidden forces. New York World.

About Pnrochlul Schools!
Omaha. Jan. 27. To the- Editor
of The Bee: In Monday's Bee a
report of a sermon delivered by
Rev. A. A. DeLarme, Baptist min
ister of this city, was given in which
he stated six reasons why the bill
introduced In the legislature to do
away with private and parochial
schools of this state should pass.
The main reasons given by him
thave been stated and restated many
limes, una as tons as I can remem
ber have Just as often been refuted
anfl proven groundless. I have at
tended both public and parochial
schools, and have children who have
attended both, and, after close con
tact and associations with both
priests and, parochial schools foui
more than'j40 years, I have never
known any of the chargest made by
Rev. DeLarme to exist.
Now, as to the part of some teach
ing' being done in a foreign tongue.
While this is equally true of public
schools, but as is well known, that
wherever indulged in it is only a
small part of the work, and we can
depend on the lessons of the late
war and public sentiment to make
the proper and necessary correction
in both parochial and public schools
in this regard, and a law will not be
necessary for that purpose.
As to the patriotism of the paroch
ial schools, they demonstrated
clearly in their war work that they
were second to none, as they have
also proven In efficiency In every
contest entered Into with the public
Now, I will give six good and suf
ficient reasons why this bill should
not become a law:
1. The bill is un-American.
2. It Is unconstitutional.
3. There Is and can be no good
nor reasonable excuse given for its
4. There Is no public demand for
it by anyone interested sincerely in
the good of the children or the good
of the state.
5. It injects religion into the poli
tics of our state, which has been
bad for our state and our policies
6. It would attempt to deprive
parents of the state of Nebraska of
their God-given rights without good
or Just cause.
Each of the above reasons could
be established in a court of Justice
by competent and legal evidence.
I can't understand how loyal and
true Americans can sit silent while
the sacred Institutions of our gov
ernment are bombarded and an at
tempt is being made to tear up and
burn the constitution of our coun
try. J. E. R.
Another View of Wilma ticc.
Omaha, Jan. 27. To the Editor
of The Bee: Wilma Rice, former
patient of ' the Detention hospital,
cannot be as pure as she tells she
is, and expects to be the rest of her
life. The time I was confined at the
home I used to see her colored hus
band come to see her and bring her
out some things, and she almost
went crazy if she wouldn't get to
talk to him or get a glimpse of him.
She is a poor woman to set an ex
ample for others. And, also being
a dope fiend, getting four shots
daily, she cannot be pure as she
addressed the congregation at tne
First Unitarian church Sunday.
Those people don't know about the
treatment the girls get at the home.
The home is a good place for dope
fiends. They get all they want and
Miss Berger is right there .with her
Because Wilma Rice has been a
trained nurse and has a good educa
tion she considers herself so much
better than others. Thank God,. I
am no dope fiend and stick to
my own race. I hope this beautirul
blonde-haired woman will stay pure,
"if you can call it that," the rest of
her life. ONE WHO KNOWS.
Both Individualism and Socialism.
Omaha, Jan. 27. To the Editor
of The Bee: A correspondent to a
local paper, who Is not aware that
socialism intends to socialize only
property that Is public in its proper
function, is afraid that private prop
erty and private rights would be in
vaded. After drawing a frightful
picture of socialism controling the
amount of candy the citizen shall
consume, following a dramatic sus
pense so silent that we can hear a
gum drop, he inquires:
Shall we embrace as our political
faith of the future, democracy or so
My answer to that question is: It
will be both individualism and so
cialism, if we know enough to attend
to our own business, it will De in
dividualism In all matters of Just
personal liberty, and socialism In all
matters of Just common interest.
Most of us have not learned to dis
tinguish clearly between public and
private property; some of us (com
munists) want only public property,
probably on the theory that there is
no such thing as a private animal;
and some of us (capitalists) appear
to see only private property, as
though they were aborigines, dig
ging everything they consume out of
the earth by themselves.
Knowledge of civil government
has never been thoroughly collected
and classified. As President Wilson
stated in a recent Paris speech, poli
tics, and especially its economic di
vision, is still not scientifically de
veloped. The reason for this may
lie in the Influence of the world's
kings and profiteers, on many of
the moWers of popular education.

political ideas and ideals is a public

Santa Claus seated himself In the

There came a remarkable change
in the vision. The warm land faded
away and in Its place was a country
buried in the snows of winter. It
was a country of ruins, but there
were children there, too hungry
children streaming into a wrecked
school building. Within the school
they seated themselves at tables and
Santa Claus bustled in with a fresh

cried the reindeer, shading their

All the other reindeers took a look,
