Any part of the future that depends on wheat
is now assured. Nebraska 'and Kansas have
produced enough to feed the country, and the
rest of the states can take care of the world.

government ' In harvesting the Kansas wheat

secretary of the navy on record.

ers should not be relaxed, just because the

Europe should carry its quota of "reds" till
the country is ridded of them.
Railroads and Harvest
A . The demand which Governor Allen is mak
ing upon the railroad administration for rates
for harvest hands to the Kansas wheat fields
does not. appear unreasonable. Under private
control the roads have granted the rates in for-
. iner 'years, and Kansas has received help from
as far east as Pittsburgh and from Cleveland.
The excuse offered by Walker D. Hines for
the administration, that if the rate is granted
to Kansas other states will demand rates for
" men who work in the different industries of vital
importance, does not present any serious prob
lem. If the demand for labor in any vital in-
' dustry is as important as the Kansas wheat sit
uation, there should be no hesitancy on the
part of, the railroads to co-operate in getting
the labor to the place of demand.
The suggestion made? by Mr. Hines that the
Kansas farmers are prosperous and should pay
wages that will attract men from all sections of
" the country is gratuitous advice from Mr.
Hines. No complaint is made of the wages.
From four to five dollars a day for harvest
hands is regarded as very attractive. But the
period of harvest labor is so short that it would
be impossible to pay wages' that would justify
. harvest hands from Ohio and Pennsylvania pay
ing full fare on the railroads at present rates,
anyway for the two or three weeks' work in
- the harvest fields.
The position taken by Mr. Hines has not
added to the popularity of the railroad admin-
istration by the government. Possibly it was
apt intended that it thould. Kansas City Star. ,
THE CASE FOR THE CODE LAW.
With the understanding that an extra session
of the Nebraska legislature is to be convened
shortly to ratify the federal suffrage amend
ment. Governor McKelvie has to decide whether
he shall include in the call the amendment and
re-enactment of the administrative code law
with an emergency clause that will put it into
immediate operation. '
The administrative code is part of the party
program upon which the governor was voted
into 'office together with a legislature over
whelmingly republican in both houses, and the
measure itself is the laborious work of careful
adaptation of this system to the needs of Ne
braska by special committees of each house.
Had it been enacted originally with the emer
gency clause there would have been'no objec
tion or complaint, but the operation of the law
is now threatened by a referendum invoked by
democratic agencies through hired 'autograph
collectors securing signatures to a petition to
defeat it. Re-enactment with the emergency
clause would, of course, be followed by a cry
from the democrats that such action is a nullifi
cation of the right of the people to a referen
dum, when in fact the proposed referendum is
a nullification of the vote already taken by the
people at the time they elected the republican
governor and legislature and the referendum
can still be taken only by way of repeal rather
than of suspension.
If the administrative code system after a fair
trial has made good, the people will want to
continue it. If it does not meet expectation, it
can be repealed either by direct vote or by
action of the next legislature. The real ques
tion therefore, is whether the code law will
stand on its merits as a piece of constructive
legislation, whether it really marks an advanced
step for efficient and economical state govern
ment as compared with the present administra
tion through the multiplicity of boards and
commissioners, which all agree is cumbersome,
costly and inefficient. 1
, China's Case Before the World.
Another weak feature of the Paris peace
treaty is that which sets up justification for the
retention of the Shantung peninsula by Japan
because it was taken from Germany and not
from China. That Germany took the land from
China twenty-one years ago, even under pre
tense of a concession is scarcely a sustainable
reason why it should not be returned to its na
tionality. A peace treaty that orders the return
to its rightful owners of the venerated skull of
a dead and gone chief of an African tribe surely
might without violence take cognizance of the
fact that a rich bit of territory properly belong
ing to China is now held by Japan under pretext
of having seized it from Germany.
If the German title were indefeasible, the
action of the peace conference in allowing the
Nipponese to hold Shantung may be defended.
China, however, contends that the concession
made to the Germans was under duress, at a
time when the spoliation of the weak and decay
ing empire was exciting European powers, and
asks the restoration of the territory to its
original sovereignty. Confirming Japan in its
pretentions to succession to German rights in
the rich mineral deposits of the peninsula con-r
trasts strangely with the professions of the "big
four," as to the establishment of justice for weak
as well as strong nations.
That it holds the germ of a future war be
tween China and Japan is clear, and that
genuine statesmanship will be required to avert
that war is as plain. The Chinese are in no
sense satisfied with the Paris decision.
Just a Matter of Business.
We are not especially concerned as to
whether the so-called championship of the world
in the realm of heavyweight prize fighting
changed hands at Toledo. Whatever of admira
tion may exist for the physical prowess of the
mighty Willard, or the splendid forces of the
agile Dempsey, is swallowed up in contempla
tion of the business acumen of the men who
promoted the affair.
Gauging the mood of the American people
with such accuracy as almost amount to
prescience, these entrepreneurs have in their
own parlance "stood the public on its head."
They (seized the opportune moment, diverted
attention from the more serious aspects of na
tional existence, and centered an unduly large
share of notice on the movements of a pair of
pugilists. This was but preliminary to and in
a measure a screen for the operations of the
business end of the game.
Once the great athlete was admired by all
and envied by many. He was an example of the
possibility'of physical and mental development
and co-ordination. On his mind as well as his
muscles depended his pre-eminence in his es
pecial line of endeavor, and the all-around man
was a source of inspiration because of his vigor.
Am6ng savage and semi-civilized people he was
chief, and the highly cultivated paid him tribute
of respect because of his beauty and grace as
well as his ability.
Not so these days. The professional athlete
is first of all a business man. His real triumph
is found in the box office, his trophies take the
form of cash in hand, and his glory is invested
in lands and stocks. His leadership may pass,
but the usufruct of his endeavor is substantial
and enduring. Even should he, as many of the
ilk have done, dissipate his gains foolishly, it
remains true that it was not the sporting instinct
nor the joy of winning that led him to the top,
Nbut the sordid longing for the hard cash.
"May the best man winl" is a mockery now,
because the outcome is really determined by the
money taken at the door.
Nebraskans will follow Silas A. Holcomb
to his new home with all hopes that in the
change of climate he will find better health and
relief from his physical ills. The people he
served so long and in so many capacities have
not lost their interest in him because of his en
The downfall of the former head of the Ne
braska Anti-Saloon league may be due to a
frame-up, or to a constitutional inability to tell
near-beer from the real thing, but it is not edi
fying in any regard.
Omaha loan and building associations make
such a showing of vigorous health and activity
as must convince the world of their soundness
and of the enterprise of their management.
Japan now sets up a plea that China slipped
the double-cross to the land of the Rising Sun.
That is nothing to what the Celestials have in
store for their little brown bosses.
Trial for Murderers of
J. P. Collins in Boston Transcript.
For 20 years Maitre do Leval was legal ad
vocate of the British legation in Brussels, and
after the war began he got an appointment in
a similar capacity to the American minister,
Brand Whitlock. greatest of Miss Cavell's cham
pions and friends.
The Maitre said Miss Cavell had done more
for the war by her death than many generals
had done in living. When she was warned of
what she must expect if she were caught in the
act of helping prisoners to get away home, her
reply was simply, 1 know, but I must go on,
and on the work went.
After Mons and Charleroi, great numbers of
allied fugitives had to be collected in all sorts
of dark and obscure places, and Belgian farmers
found harboring any of these were shot with
the captives themselves. But nobody ever con
ceived of women being shot for any such act
Maitre de Leval made it clear, at any rate,
that she was only one of a group concerned in
the noble work of obtaining life and liberty for
brave men who had risked their lives for the
liberty of others, and he showed moreover what
a clever plan was improvised by the patriotic
Pfince de Croy and his sister for succoring
I hey brought them to their chateau, or
somewhere near it, had them photographed,
gave them Flemish names, taught them the ru
diments of thejanguage, prepared false identity
papers for them and even located their birth in
places which never existed.
When the majority of this devoted group
were arrested and they were betrayed by a
man said to be a Pole the Prince de Croy was
one of the few who escaped, and it was gener
ally believed that the women would survive.
Most of them did, but one of them was doomed
from the first and knew it. Nurse Cavell had
o one near her to tell her what to say. She
cVvned to saving these men's lives, 200 in all,
and openly said it was her work and her duty
in life. If she had handed these countrymen
of hers over to the Germans, she said simply,
they would have been shot.
When remonstrance was made to the Ger
mans through American authorities, the reply
was given that there was no need for M. Leval
to see her; besides, no political prisoner could
be seen by anyone 'till sentence was passed, and
in any case, being a Belgian, M. de Leval could
not plead in a German court. When another
man was obtained, M. Sadi Kirschen, he was
told the case was not very grave.
It is' clear now that a game had started to
put her friends off and give the machinery of
murder plenty of time to go forward.
As a rule, even in German law, the public
prosecutor in military courts was a man versed
in the procedure and innocent of bias; but in
this case a man named Stoebef was employed,
whose son had been killed on the English front,
and he seems to have left no stone unturned to
He was an elegant, cynical, incompetent, un
scrupulous ruffian, fashionably dressed, with a
waxed mustache, and he set himself to bully
Nurse Cavell in the most horrible way. He
treated her like a slave and told her she lied;
he bullied her advocate for using a word which
was not German, and made the whole defense
There was no capital offense to be proved
against her, for she was only an accomplice in
helping soldiers into neutral territory, Holland.
Moreover, she never guided "enemy" troops
into enemy lands, as was alleged in order to
bring her into the toils.
As a matter of fact, a law was enacted only
after her death to give warrant for her sen
tence. She herself was in no doubt at any time as
to her fate. "I am English," she said, "and they
want my life."
Fearing the worst possibility, her few friends
prepared a petition for her addressed to the
governor, Von Bissing,, and his creature, Von
Lancken. When they asked for Von Lancken
(having heard the worst) he was at a frivolous
play and sent word they must wait till the play
was over. Then he grumbled at being disturbed
at that time of night, though it was her last
night alive. First he denied the death sen
tence, but later admitted it, saying he could
only be a messenger, and not even the kaiser
could release her then.
She was bound to a chain and fired at by 12
soldiers, but these are held blameless. They
simply carried out orders.
The men to answer for it all are the kaiser,
Stoeber, Von Bissing and Von Sauberzweig,
and it looks as if we are to have all four at the

A Just Judge
Magistrate Geismar at Coney Island has
fought a valiant rear-guard action in the lost
battle for personal liberty. A woman was
brought into his court, charged with the hein
ous offense of wearing a bathing suit on the
street but under a complete and decorous
equipment of street clothing. Her culpability
was discovered by a vigilant policeman who de
tected the bathing suit, and who arrested the
woman's husband for objecting to his methods.
Now the magistrate holds that the right of the
citizen to self-determination in undergarments
should be inviolate, so long as outer garments
meet the demands of propriety; that wearing
a bathing suit is a crime only in some circum
stances, and that the police are not entitled to
go about disrobing citizens to find out if they
are wearing anything offensive to the official
moral sense. v
"Thus freedom now so seldom wakes, the
only throb she gives is when some heart indig
nant breaks to show that still she lives." Though
our legislative bodies will no doubt hasten to
remedy the oversight, it is a relief to feel that
for a few days at least there is something which
is not a crime. New York Times.

Confusion In Published Orders.
M. R. J. You are not alone In
your predicament; others are also
confused by the apparently contra
dictory orders that are published
from time to time with reference to
the army. Things have moved fast
in the last few weeks, and as events
have developed changes have been
forced in the military program. It
is only certain that the American
forces in France are being removed
as speedily as possible, arid that
within the present month they may
all be out of that country. It is also
settled that troops held in Germany
will berremoved with all expedition.
The army bill just passed provides
for an army of 400,000 for the com
ing year, which necessitates the de
mobilization of forces at home with
utmost expedition. The latest an
nouncement from the War depart
ment to the effect that the army will
be reduced to 233,000 officers and
men by September 30 is interpreted
to mean that all American soldiers

In these days of summer heat
I should like to make retreat
To the mountains, or the lake,
Where my thirst I fain would slake
From the rippling hillside stream;

Mindful not of time or tide; '

Pine trees murmuring In the breeze;
Then, mayhap. In summer heat,

but some men have to live on. (See

for disturbing the sweet slumbers of
his neighbors by tolerating a
rooster that persists in sending forth
his clarion tones In the wee small
hours of the morning; or whether
he should be Induced to start a
sanitarium to restore the hearing of
the deaf. Why is it some folks can
not hear the door bell when the bill
collector calls, but is disturbed by
the mild notes of a poor rooster who
is only fulfilling the instincts of na
