WHY NOT RESERVATIONS?
A Washington dispatch quotes the president
as being flatly opposed to the senate's making
sny reservations in ratifying the treaty, "point
ing out that there always might be doubt as to
whether any particular reservation really were
innocuous or would vitiate some league princi
pie." Similarly, it might be said that doubt will
always exist as to whether all the principles laid
down for the league are capable of application
Until' this is made clear, apprehension will not
be stilled. .
Mr. Wilson certainly understands his coun
trymen well enough to be assured that in ask
ing free debate and full information on the
treaty and its included covenants, they are
showing him no disrespect. The overtopping
importance of the object sought requires that
the method to achieve it be given such clear
and exhaustive analysis as will leave no doubt
in anybody's mind concerning its meaning. The
United States is asked to throw its tremendous
influence behind an experiment, and the people
of the. United States have a right to know ex
actly what they are pledged in advance to do.
No one questions the desire of the Ameri
cans to promote and preserve peace through
out the world, and it is equally admitted that
they are open-minded as to the great departure
from traditional policy proposed by the League
of Nations. Can one man, unadvised and de
clining to take counsel with his countrymen,
decide this for them? Is his wisdom so exalted
and his vision so inspired that none may do
other than take his word and obediently submit
to his proposal?
The constitution, whose limitations Mr. Wil
son admits held him back somewhat in Paris,
lays on the senate ai obligation the president
has so far ignored. It is to examine all treaties,
and to advise concerning their contents before
giving the assent that makes them effective.
This duty will be performed, and if in the
course of the examination danger be discov
ered, reservations should be made. The senate
would be faithless to the country and to itself
if it did not so perform its high duty.
i Omaha and the Ice Supply.
Local ice dealers are affording the very best
possible support for the suggestions several
times made by The Bee, that the service of the
municipal ice plant be extended so that all may
enjoy its benefits. , So far as the publicly
owned plant reaches consumers, it is giving re
lief, but it only serves a few, and these not al
ways the ones who most need it. Good health,
even the lives of little children and the aged
and infirm, depend on a plentiful supply of ice
in the summer time. Omaha once had reached
a splendid place in the low rate of infant mor
tality. High prices and failure to deliver ice
on Sunday threaten to bring us down from the
eminence we attained as the best city in the
country for a baby in the summer time. The
Bee's free ice and milk fund will take care of
many who otherwise would not be provided for,
bur there are thousands of other homes from
which tribute is being exacted by the ice com
panies, and on which a heavier charge is now
to be laid. These corporations are hastening
the time when the community will get all its
ice from a city-owned plant.
Siberia and Its Resources
From the Daily Commerce Reports.
A portion of the report of the subcommittee
on markets and " supplies of the Canadian
economic commission, in Siberit is here pre
sented: Siberia proper, exclusive of Russian Cen
tral Asia and the Steppes, covers an area of
4,800,000 square miles. This territory stretches
for a distance of approximately 6,000 miles
from the Ural mountains to the Pacific ocean
and is bordered on the north by the Actic
ocean and on the south by the outposts of the
Chinese empire, along the Mongolian and Man
churian frontiers. Within the borders of Si
beria are found fertile plains, of black eayth,
grazing prairie lands, rolling downs, rugged
plateaus, extensive forests, and frozen Arctic
wastes. The territory is rich in agricultural
resources, furs, minerals and forest wealth.
Scapegoat for Food Profiteers.
It is evident the federal administration pro
proses to use the big American packing com
panies to explain the enormous, and frequently'
unwarranted, increase in the- cost of food to the
consumer. It is not disputed that these con
cerns have greatly enlarged thejr business
beyond the scope of its original purpose, going
into fields often but remotely connected with
meats, if at all, and it is equally true they have
great influence in the markets. It has yet to
be established, however, that this influence has
been adversely exerted so far as the consumer
is concerned. Until a more careful inquiry has
beeen made, and a more profound analysis of
the business is had, judgment on this point
must be suspended.
The difficulty is that the man who buys
food turns in the direction pointed by the gov
ernment to fix the blame for the extortionate
rate he is forced to pay. To him it matters
only that hogs are selling at above $22 .per
hundredweight today when four years ago the
price was $8; that wheat has marched up from
84 cents a bushel in 1914 to $2.20; corn from 70
cents to $1.49; potatoes from 48 cents to $1.05;
apples from 77 cents to $2; butter from 25 cents
to 47 cents;eggs from 16 centstto 34 cents, and
so on down the line. These quotations, except
that on hogs, are farm prices and not market
prices. They are furnished by the United
States government, and accurately indicate why
it costs more to live now than it did before the
war. The farmer is not to blame, for his costs,
too, have increased.
Profiteering has een discovered, and it is
fairly well settled that speculative operations in
foodstuffs have sent prices to the consumer
much above the figure that would be justified
by cost, carriage and handling. Whatever may
be the fault of the packer, and he is far from
blameless, it is unfair to hold him responsible
for a situation in which so many others are
concerned, and out of which streams of profit
flow into many pockets that have no direct
connection with the meat industry.
Fight for "Two and Three-Quarters."
The battle in the house over war-time pro
hibition now turns on the "2.75" beer. From the
drys come cheerfully framed assertions that the
war-time prohibition will continue until the
constitutional amendment takes effect, and thus
no opportunity will be provided for restocking
cellars and lockers that may be depleted to
some extent. So the wets, accepting the possi
bility of this situation, are rallying to save the
milder form of alcoholic beverage. The con
tention that congress has no right to define
intoxicating liquor rests on a foundation that
has proved as elusive as a well-waxed dance
floor for unwary feet. The difficulty of proving,
intoxication has been the despair of courts for
generations. If no rule can be laid down to de
termine when the result is attained, how will it
be possible to positively define the cause? It
is quite likely that congress will not specifically
exempt the "2.75" article, and that thus ample
employment for courts will be provided, until
eventually the matter reaches the final tribunal
and a definition of what is intoxicating be given
from which no appeal can be taken.
When the senate finally ratifies the treaty,
the only disappointment felt will be among
those purblind democrats who persist in think
ing the war was a party affair
Geographically and economically Siberia
may be divided into three main divisions: West
ern Siberia, which comprises practically the
whole of the watershed of the Ob river, is made
up of the provinces of Tobolsk and Tomask and
the districts of Akmoansk and Semipalatinck.
From north to south, western Siberia is com
prised of several zones in the far north the
barren Arctic wastes, south of which is a wide
extent of' forest belt. About the 56th degree of
latitude the torest belt merges imperceptibly
into the arable zone, which is a continuation
of the black-earth region of southern Russia.
The bulk of the population of Siberia is settled
in this arable zone, which economically is the
most important part of the country. It was
here that thi" stream of Slavonic immigration
from European Russia was first directed, and
it is here that European commercial influence
is most widely spread and deeply rooted. South
of the black-earth 4elt, commencing at about
the 53d latitude, are the dry steppes, suitable
only for grazing but sopporting large flocks of
horses, cattle and sheep. The southern boun
dary of western Siberia is formed by the Altai
mountain chain, which crosses the continent
in a northeasterly direction. The foothills of
the mountains provide some of the most fertile
lands in Siberia, while the higher slopes afford
Central Siberia stretches from west of the
Yenisei river to Lake Baikal and comprises the
provinces of Yenisei and Irkutsk. Most of this
section of Siberia consists of forest lands. In
the south there are rolling downs and semi
mountainous country, covered for the most part
with forests. In the valleys there are patches
ot arable land. Ihe development of central Si
beria has been hindered by its distance from
export markets, the rail haul to either the Pa
cific or the Baltic seaboard beine too lone to
permit, in normal times, the shipping abroad
of the products of this region.

Homestead Law for Soldiers.
Ex-Buck No new legislation has
been enacted in regard to home
steads for soldiers. The laws are
the same in regard to public lapds
as before the war. If you will write
to the commissioner ot the general
land office, Washington, D. C, he
will give you all information, with a
description of lands open to entry.
However, three bills are before the
congress at present, intended to
make provision for the opening of
large tracts of land under conditions
especially favorable to soldiers. One
of the features of the bills is a plan
for loaning money to the soldier on
long time and at low interest, to en
able him to. -make a start in life. If
you are sufficiently interested write
to Allen Tukey, 620 First National
bank building, or to T. J. McGuire,
EOS Omaha National bank building,
either of whom will furnish you
with copies of the three bills and
give you a chance to express your
views on either plan. These men

chapter of the American Legion.

The third district into which Siberia mav
be divided economically is that known as the
Russian tar kast and stretches east from Lake
Baikal to the Pacific ocean. This section com
prises the provinces of Transbaikalia, Amur,
Maritime, Yakutsk. Sakhalin and Kamtchatka.
Commercial eastern Siberia has always been
distinct from the rest of the country. The
trade has been controlled for the most part
from Vladivostok, ' foreign goods being im
ported by sea, while western and cen'ral Si
beria received supplies of foreien merchandise
by rail through European Russia.
the climate of the Russian Far East is
largely influenced by the Yablovny mountain
chain, which runs northeasterly from the moun
tains of Transbaikalia. This mountain chain
protects the Amur river valley from the cold
north winds. The slopes of the mountains are
well wooded, and the forest resources of east
ern Siberia are important in connection with
the future development of industry. This ter
ntory is also rich in .minerals, while the fish
eries of the Amur river and coast are an im
portant potential source of wealth.
Eastern Siberia may be said to be the leaat
developed portion of the country, but on the
other hand this district is rich in resources
which should be utilized to a greater extent in
the future. This will be reflected in a rapid
growth ot trade with the Pacific ports of Rus
sia. In addition to servinar eastern Siberia
Vladivostok is also, to a certain extent, a port
for northern Manchuria. The trade center of
northern Manchuria is Harbin, which is con
nected with Vladivostok by railway. The total
population of this district is approximately

Woman and Prize Fighting
Light, but not leading, as regards the al
ways interesting subject of feminine psychol
ogy, is to be derived from the comments of
Willard s wife and Dempsey s mother on the
result of the fieht between the two men in To
ledo. Mrs. Willard said that, while she was
sorry her husband was defeated, she was glad
of it, too, for now, having no championship to
defend, -he would become a private citizen
again and he and she would be able to live in
peace. Of Dempsey's mother it is reported
that she "shouted with joy" on hearing; the
news of his victory, and said. "I am overjoyed."
These expressions of opinion, or emotion,
in appearance, at least, ana on tne surtace, are
widely unlike so widely that nothing at all
can be learned from them as to the reaction to
prizefighting of women closely related to prize
fighters or closely associated with them.
Neither of these women manifested any disap
probation of pugilism except that one disliked
its disturbance of ordinary family life. If the
mother had been having any anxiety as to
whether her son would win or lose, she did not
disclose it. One glimpses in the remarks of
both these women a high appreciation of fight
championships as productive of money and of
a notoriety not easily distinguishable from
Assuming that Mrs. Willard is sincerely
glad, everything considered, that her husband
was beaten, and that Mrs. Dempsey is as sin
cerely glad that her son won, there is illustrat
ed anew the fact that women are individuals,
disagreeing, on all subjects just as men disa
gree. Yt one still hears occasionally talk
about "the woman vote," and it is from women
that it most often comes 1 As a matter of fact,
there is no such thing as a "woman vote" on
