J . French Moderation
When we remember the history of the last
half century, the French peace terms, as an
nounced by M. Pichon, are a miracle of mag
nanimity. In 1870 France was treacherously
enticed into a dark alley, knocked down and
robbed. From that day to the beginning of the
late war she was systematically and with cyni
cal impudence blackmailed on her every trans
action and kept in a condition of cruel and
costly apprehension. She had to go armed day
and night and guard her Rhineward doors with
ceaseless vigilance. She was driven into an
alliance with Russian czardom, net because she
liked it, but as a measure of self-protection,
This dragged her into the war, whether or no,
when Pan-Germany menaced Russia. For that
act of self-preservative fealty she was invaded,
devastated, crucified for four years, industrially
wrecked and crippled and compelled to send, not
nly her first-born, but all of her young man
hood into the shambles.
And now the thug nation lies at her feet.
What the thug nation would do were the posi
tions reversed we do not need to conjecture.
History has recorded it. But what France pro
poses to do to her prostrate enemy is precisely
what President Wilson, in the calm and detach
ment of his White House library, worked out
dispassionately as the application of the prin
ciples of justice. That is, France will exact
reparation, but will not demand indemnity.; will
take back her stolen French provinces, but will
not annex any German territory; will discuss
her terms in public at a wide-open peace con
ference, with the world in the gallery, and will
take her place in a league of nations.
The kaiser in Amerongen and Bismarck in
Valhalla will marvel at her moderation. Phila

THE SPEAKERSHIP SITUATION.
According to the most reliable advices from
Washington, the situation developed by the
contest for the speakership in the next house is
clarifying in a gratifying manner.
The withdrawal of Congressman Fess from
a triangular competition leaves the issue ap
parently between Congressman Mann, the
present floor leader, and Congressman Gillett,
who served as floor leader during a large part
of the present session, while Mr. Mann was in
capacitated by illness. This realignment is
taken to make it certain that Mr. Mann will not
be chosen, and that Mr. Gillett will be the
next speaker, unless it is finally decided better
to take up an entirely new candidate.
The Bee has already indicated why it be
lieves the selection of Mr. Mann would be un
wise, chiefly because though representing a
western state, he does not reflect the progres
sive spirit of the republicanism of the middle
west. Despite the fact that he is commissioned
by a New England constituency, Mr. Gillett
more nearly represents that spirit, and would
be more acceptable even to those who, like us,
would ordinarily prefer a western man.
The main thing to be desired is that the
republican organization for the next house
should be marshalled under a leadership that
not only makes for harmonious union of the
different elements of the party, but also bids
fair to command the sympathy and support of
our forward-looking citizenship, that is pinning
its hopes for the future upon the ability of the
republicans to solve successfully and satisfac
torily the great after-the-war problems of reconstruction.
Partisanship and Peace Program.
Much beating of the tom-tom and chewing
of soap is in progress in the council tepee of
the Unwashed. Their sachems are making
medicine, and their braves are dancing,
preparatory to taking the war trail, or some
thing. They see a lot of things, especially a
bulwark of stalwart partisanship stretched
across the path along which their big chief has
sauntered so gaily in the last few weeks, dur
ing which time he has gathered many trophies
from the capitals of Europe and such garlands
of praise as might have bowed even the stiff
and sturdy neck of Julius Caesar. But the
raucous chorus that accompanies the drubbing
of the drums does not convince.
In plain words, the making of peace is not
a partisan affair, nor is it the meritorious
privilege of a particular group ,any more than
was the making of war. It was the American
people that went to war, not the president, nor
the democratic party. And whatever peace is
finally concluded must be set up in the name of
the American people. That is the point our
democratic brethren are prone to forget in their
zeal to sound the praise of their party's head.
It is all very well for the chairman (by right
of seniority) of the senate's committee on for
eign relations to disguise his personal antipathy
and appear at the White House luncheon, if he
wishes. He has made a similar sacrifice on
other occasions. But he has no right to call
into question the motives of high-minded sen
ators who decline to stultify themselves in ad
vance by participating in a confidential confer
ence when they know they will oppose its pur
pose in public.
Nor does all opposition to the proposed
League of Nations come out of republican
councils. Much of it arises among an influent
tial circle of democrats, to appease whom the
president is now exerting his utmost of personal
power. Peace is not a party question in
Troublous Times in England.
Premier Lloyd George warns the country
that civil strife is imminent, the coal situation
having reached so serious a stage that an out
break leading to internecine war may result.
Th is is one of the peculiar outgrowths of the
war in the United Kingdom. Efforts to inter
mix political and economic questions have pro
duced a confusion that is not bringing any good
to the country. The coal miners adjourned a
bitter controversy with the bosses in order to
contribute to the war, though once or twice it
required the utmost persuasion on the part of
the premier and his associates to induce the
men to continue sending coal to the pit mouth
that war work be not interrupted. The strike
at this time presents a new phase, being mainly
an effort on the part of the men to force the
nationalization of the industry, hoping that by
refraining from work they can compel the gov
ernment to oust the bosses and take over the
mines, the miners have been carrying on a vig
orous campaign, for several weeks. Industry in
general has suffered severely, and the state
ment of the premier does not seem to be
greatly overdrawing the picture just now.
Sober counsel may prevail, but the miners are
not helping their cause, or that of workers in
general by their obstinacy on the point. k
Change in Court Martial Practice.
The senate has passed a house measure that
ought to have early approval of the president.
It is to alter the Articles of War so as to give
a commanding general the authority to set aside,
modify or mitigate a court martial sentence.
At present this power rests solely with the
president. If the amendment goes through, it
will do away with much of the occasion for
complaint now heard. Many sentences passed
by summary courts far exceed the requirements,
either of justice or army discipline, usually re
sulting from unfamiliarity with the process and
powers of the tribunal. To entrust a com
manding general with discretionary power in
these matters is wholly within the scope of rea
son, and very likfily will not operate to lessen
the authority or disturb the workings of mili
tary processes. When the public gets a little
better acquainted with the ways of the army,
it will see that much of the difficulty has come
from a lack of understanding on part of officers
and men alike. Soldiers are human, and discipline
is very rigid, and in making one fit the other
considerable friction arises. The worst part of
this will be removed wlTen the commanding
general is clothed with power to make the dis
cipline a little more elastic, until the soldier
gets inured to its application.

The Watch On the Rhine
.. Stars and Stripes, France.
The ex-kaiser is still missing. It happened
at Mayen, headquarters of the 6th brigade,
Third army, where a bust of the last Hohenzol
lern was mounted in an ornate pedestal in a lit
tle open space not far from headquarterss. On
a joyous evening, while everybody who could
afford it was making merry, the bust disap
peared. 'Where did it go? Nobody knew. But there
had been a light fall of snow in the night, and
through this snow, betwen the pedestal and the
river, there were visible foot prints, partly oblit
erated by what seemed to be the dragging of a
heavy object over them. The foot prints went
down to the river bank. They went back, with
out the heavy objecct.
The bust is still missing.
Near Hausen, on the road to Mayen, is a
cannon a German cannon. It sits mihonored
and unsung, and it may be added to the number
of guns being handed over to the allies by the
Germans, and it may not.
But it is rapidly becoming a landmark. Chil
dren play in the sand ami mud beneath it. The
women of the neighborhood gather there to gos
sip. The men discuss the state of internal af
fairs while leaning over it. American soldiers
examine it, discuss it, and try its levers and

It is as hard to get into Coblenz as it is to
get out of it.
At the Ehrenbreitstein fortress, just across
the river, are Kentuckians who have never been
in a real big city, or even a medium sized one
like Coblenz, and there are New Yorkers and
New Jerseyites who have tasted metropolitan
sweets and have a great hankering for seconds.
They are on top of the big rock, with the
winking, yellow beckoning lights just across the
river, with the music, the cafes, the commissary
and everything, and they can't get across.
The price of iron crosses is going up. Cob
lenz is now a limited leave area and 2,000 fresh
buyers from the Third army, not to mention
thousands of other transients, are in the city
Iron crosses of the first class went from 3
marks to 9 and then leaped to 12 and 18. One
store demands 40. Crosses of the second class
are 12 marks. They used to be 2 and 6.
Most of the helmets in the region are now
on their way to the states. The leather ones
brought 40, 50, 60 and more marks each. And
yet, word from Cologne is that these relics are
going begging at 9 marks.
The delicatessen stores continue to do a roar
ing business. The pastry is the nearest ap
proach to the real stuff many members of the
Third army have had since they landed, and
they're taking advantage of it. And the photo
graphic galleries you can scarcely get into
them. Everybody wants to have his picture
taken in Coblenz, it seems, in order to prove to
the folks at home that he had gazed upon the
Reading one's shirt seems just as popular an
indoor sport as ever, even officers of high rank
taking part in the pastime ever and anon. All
Germany seems to have been smitten, due
chiefly to the fact that when the armistice was
signed the soldiers called it a war and departed
for their homes, taking their guests right with
them. Hotels have not escaped.
Incidentally, there is the story of the luck
less doughboy who read faithfully and diligent
ly, meanwhile hoarding each piece of issue
clothing against the time when he would have
a complete new outfit. Then for a bath and free
dom. Alas! He had his new clothes wrapped
up in a newspaper in a disused room of his bil
let. It was decided to throw all old clothing
into the disused room; and when he went to
seek his bundle, after drawing his last neces
sary bit of clothing, he found it buried beneath
a pile of the cootiest clothes in all Germany.
Hoover's Reply to Heney
A confidential report made to the president
last September by Food Administrator Hoover,
now made public, throws a great light upon re
cent activities of Francis J. Heney and various
congressional committees investigating the Chi
cago packers. If, aside from a campaign in
favor of government ownership, these proceed
ings have had any other purpose than to prove
collusion between the food administration and
the meat monopoly, there has been no evidence
Mr. Hoover addressed himself to war condi
tions. Mr. Heney has been elaborating all the
controversies and issues of peace past, present
and future. Charged with the responsibility of
feeding the nations associated with us in war
against autocracy, Mr. Hoover opposed govern
mental violence in the matter of the packers.
They were under national regulation and na
tional taxation and they were performing a
necessary war service. If regulation failed in
any respect it could be strengthened. If there
was profiteering, so also there was the power
to increase taxation.
The federal trade commission, of which Mr.
Heney was counsel for a time, was created to
pass upon just such conditions. It was expected
to be a body devoted to the interpretation of
law and the instruction of business men who
might be in conflict with it. Instead of that, it
has become the hercest ot prosecutors outside
of the courts: it has ureed unon government a
colossal scheme of 'national ownership of food
industries, and it has remained in the back
ground while Mr. Heney, in its name., has as
sailed Mr. Hoover and the packers alike.
Not a word appears in anything written by
Mr. Hoover showing either ignorance of or
sympathy with the practices of the meat trust.
He was using the meat trust to win the war,
and he was honest enoueh to testify to its ef
ficient co-operation, leaving the questions of
peace o be settled after the peace, in war as
in peace, the federal trade commission and Mr.
Henev seem to have sought the disruption of an
industry upon which, whether lawful or unlaw
ful, the civilized world is depending and must
depend for some time to, come. New York

sleeping things of earth to springtime
work and play.)
The Hurtl-HcnoVd Frost Imns.
THE Frost Imps laughed with mis
chievous glee as they frolicked
along the trail of Prince Bonnie mua
Bell. They blew their icy nream on
waking trees, flowers, grasses, and
blades of wheat, and wherever their
bieath struck the waking sleepers
gave a sighing moan, hung their
heads sadly and unwillingly went
back to sleep some of them not to
waken again, for the breath of the
Frost Imps is killing to tender grow
Prince Bonnie Blue Bell faced the
Frost Imps boldly:
"Go back to the North Pole," he
ordered sternly. "You have worn
out your welcome here. You must
give way to the bonnie breezes of

saucily. "We're not going back to

"You can't stay here." protested
Prince Bonnie Blue Bell. "You
keep the growing things from wak
ing up. and if they don't wake up
they can't grow into fruits and grains
to feed the world.
"Hi yi! Guess we will stay here if
we want to," yelled the Frost Imps,
breathing on the fruit trees until
they creaked with the cold.
"The Sun will melt you if you don't
watch out," warned Trince Bonnie
"Not while we keep the icy winds
roaring," snapped the Frost Imps,
and with that they blew a chilling
blast that made Peggy and Billy Bel
gium shiver until their teeth chat
tered. "I'll drive them away," shouted
Billy bravely. Me picked up a club
and gave one of the Imps a sharp
crack over the head, lilng! The
blow knocked the head of the Imp
completely on. Billy Belgium gasped
In dismay. He hadn't meant to
smash the Imp to pieces.
Then a strange thing happened.
The body of the Imp picked up the
cracked head, pressed it hard, as a
boy presses a snow ball, and hurled
it straight at Billy. So astonished
was Billy that he didn't think to
dodge and the head hit him smack in
Billy saw stars. The head was like
ice and the Imp had thrown it with
But the blow made Billy so mad
he got over his scare in a hurry.
Sailing into the Imps with his club
ho cracked head after head. But each
time the Imp struck would pick up
his head and hurl lt at Billy. Soon
the air was filled with flying heads,
so many he could not dodge them all.
Peggy pumped forward to help
Billy, pounding the Imps with a
stick. But even with her help, the
battle went against them. The heads
hurt when they hit and each blow
sent sharp chills through the chil
dren. Besides they didn't seem to be
able to harm the Imps, for after they
they threw their heads they picked
them up and put them back on their
shoulders as good as ever.
Now the Imps began to pinch
Peggy. Each pinch made her feel
a though she was freezing. And
they attacked Prince Bonnie Blue
Bell so fiercely that In a minute he
fell helpless, frozen like a chunk of
"Help! Help!" he whispered be
fore his lips froze together.
Billy quit fighting as he heard the
call. He turned to pick up Prince
Bonnie Blue Bell, but at that mo
ment Peggy, chilled to the bone by
the pinches of the Frost Imps,
tumbled to the ground. Billy grab
bed her under the arm, seized Prince
Bonnie Blue Bell with his other hand
and dragged them both to the char
iot. "Away! Away!" he shouted to the
White Babbits, which were shiver
ing in their harness. The Babbits
gave a great leap, and broke Into a
gallop that, for the moment, left the
Frost Imps far behind.

really of the sort who are presumed
to be detained at the home, have
been sent there and were unable to
get any kind of a hearing in court.
The autorities have decided that no

a hearing in court and adjudged a
proper subject for detention at the

FACTOR IH CUTTI
"Many months of comfort at little
expense" is the way Charles A. Pear
son of San Diego, California, sums up
his experience with Neolin Soles. Mr.
Pearson had two pairs of shoes re
soled with Neolin Soles, and after
wearing them for twenty months
writes "I will have to get new shoes
sometime, but so far as the soles are
concerned, that time seems as far
distant as when they were new."
This is typical of the experience
millions are having with Neolin Soles.
Created by Science to be durable,
flexible and waterproof, these soles
are an important factor in cutting
.shoe expense. You can get them on
new shoes for the whole family, and
for re-soling. They are made by The
Goodyear Tire Si Rubber Co., Akroji,
Ohio, who also make Wingfoot Heels

Meaning of Zionism.
Omaha, Feb. 21. To the Editor of
The Bee: Recently the Kansas City
Star printed a statement by Dr. Sam
uel Schulnian that a majority of
Jewish peoples here and everywhere
did not desire a Jewish homeland,
which is not correct.
The Zionists' hope for a Jewish
commonwealth Is to settle the ever
lasting Jewish question for all time
and to provide a refuge for all home
less Jewish people, where they can
live in peace. The so-called equal
right promise has no value. Its
meaning was best illustrated by the
Roumanian guarantee violation, the
Polish massacres in Lemberg and in
the very recent pogroms In Russia.
Without a homeland the Jewish
people always will be a prey to po
litical aspirants and religious fanat
ics, as in the past, ever since Rome
conquered the world and destroyed
the small nations. All Jewish people
pray for the restoration of Zion. On .
every page of every prayer dook
there is a special prayer for it, with
the exception of the reformed sect
whom Doctor Schulman represents.
Their number is less than half of 1
per cent ot the Jewish population.
