France got quite a bargain in American

The announced itinerary of the president's

against calumnious assertions that shoes are
about to go up to $21 or even $50 a pair. In

MISSION OF THE PRESIDENT.
The president is on the point of leaving
Washington, ' to accomplish his speech-making
journey throughout the west The avowed
object of this is to create sentiment in favor of
the Versailles treaty with its covenant for a
League of Nations. He will find a great change
in public sentiment on the main point. Ameri
cans are as thoroughly devoted to peace and all
it contains as ever, but they are not persuaded
that the proposed league contains all the ele
ments of peace.
Certain of its provisions, the ones that really
govern, appear to contain the elements of even
greater wars than the one just ended. It is
becoming well understood that the present cov
enant is really an invitation to Germany to or
ganize an opposing league, easy enough to do
with central Europe and a revived Ruslia, and
instead of the nations being in one camp, they
will be again in twoj with an aggressive, warlike
and powerful people at the head of one, looking
to revenge on the other.
This is but a single feature of the League of
Nations. Against the peace treaty as it stands
is the black mark of Shantung, which Mr. Wil
son has said does not meet his views, but to
which he gave consent in order that Japan
might be induced to enter the league.
His task on his tour will be to win popular
support for a league that holds the germs of
future war, and for a treaty that bases peace
on an admitted injustice to a weak nation. Can
he persuade the people that either of these is
Mussel Shoals a Deep Disgrace.
Attorney General Palmer has announced an
inquiry into the Mussel Shoals nitrate plant,
with a view to possible criminal prosecutions.
He will not have to dig very deep to find ample
employment for federal grand juries, for of all
the shameless profiteering jobs perpetrated
in the name of war, this is the most scandalous.
Any delinquency alleged in cpnnection with the
air craft or munitions failures is mild and in
nocuous alongside this monumental bit of job
bery. Mussel Shoals promoters had been before
congress for many years, in pursuance of well
developed plans of propaganda concerning the
fixation of aerial nitrogen for fertilizer uses.
A modest appropriation, usually around $10,
000,000, was asked. When the war came on
and need of nitrates was urgent, the legislature
of Virginia memorialized congress to set apart
$20,000,000 for this plant. Following this an
appropriation of $14,000,000 was made for the
erection" of the plant.
When he army appropriation bill was be
fore the house last January it was discovered
that $60,000,000 actually had been expended on
the Mussel Shoals project, and a further ap
propriation of $14,000,000 was asked to con
struct a dam that would provide the water
power needed to operate the plant. The
original promoters have an agreement with the
government fliat when peace is declared they
can purchase the plant at "scrap" value.
Originally it was to revert to them, but this
was changed because of the opposition that de
veloped in the house, principally led by Long
worth, of Ohio. In January last the legislature
of Alabama memorialized congress to continue
the lavish expenditure of money on the project.
As it stands, the , Air Nitrate corporation
has the privilege to purchase at scrap value
the great plant on which the government has
expended $75,000,000, a modest bonus to a
private corporation for its "patriotism." This
makes no account of the millions of dollars the.
government spent in acquiring sites and erect
ing buildings around the big plant.
Mussel Shoals is on the Tennessee river in
Carrying Concealed Weapons.
Laxity of law enforcement is making possi
ble a situation that is becoming very dan
gerous. Carrying concealed weapons is made
a felony in Nebraska, under the Shoemaker
law, but its enforcement is almost entirely
neglected.' When irresponsible boys can arm
themselves, as has been and is the case in
Omaha, and set about on ventures that have
murder as, a possible outcome, citizens have a
right to protest against the conduct of the po
lice. In the enforcement of law, preference
should not be given to one over another, but
all should be observed alike. What is needed
to restore and maintain order in this city is an
undiscriminating application of the salutary
laws of the state as well as the or
dinances of the city. So long as weapons are
carried by rowdy boys and men, so long will
employment be found for them. Thuggery will
droop if the thugs be dealt with according to
law. Let us have no more exhibitions such as
recently was given, when a well known "tough"
was found in possession of a huge pistol, which
was turned over by the police judge to the em
ployer of the culprit, and both set free without
even a reprimand or caution.
.. High Prices Coming Down.
The sensational break in the price of live
hogs may or may not be a sign of a general
recession in prices It probably is. The $23
hog was an anomalyj nojt justified even by war
conditions. The $15 hog was profitable during
the early period of the war, and at $18 returned
a liberal margin to the producer, who was al
lowed the extra profit to stimulate production.
Following the close of the war came the sudden
jump to $23, purely the result of a speculative
movement. Europe was expected to take our
surplus pork product at any price, and conse
quently home users were forced to pay on that
basis. Europe still wants the meat, but the
factor of "ability to pay," pointed out by The
Bee weeks ago, controls absolutely, and Europe
can not pay, neither can Americans. When
pork products get back to a basis where con
sumption may be resumed, other commodities
are likely to follow, and a generally lower level
of prices will be established. It is too early to
justify conclusions as yet, but the tendency is
in favor of the consumer for the moment
The French senate has not been precipitate,
either, in consideration of the peace treaty,
having just taken up the matter for formal
action. The delay in- restoring peace is not
all in Washington.
The white man who went to Texas to stir
up the negroes showed very poor judgment, if
he thought anything of his life.
Bela Kun's secret correspondence file has
been located, but that is not half so important
as the fact that his loot was discovered
THE BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, AUGUST 30, 1919.
The Shantung Amendment Vj-Ha fijaGs
From the Kansas City Times.
It will be said that an American amend
ment to the treaty restoring Shantung to
China will have no effect upon the , secret trea
ties between our allies and Japan by which
the German rights in that province were be
stowed upon Japan, and which settlement was
confirmed by the Versailles signatories and rat
ified by Germany.
That may be so, and yet we shall see in
case the senate adopts the foreign relations
committee's amendment. But whether it does
or does not the United States cannot afford,
even in appearance, to seal by its approval if
after the fact a transaction that indelibly
stains with - injustice a peace loudly pro
claimed to be .one of high righteousness and
honorable dealing. To what level of diplo
macy have we descended, and how far have we
departed from the pretensions we held during
the war, when it can be urged in the senate,
as was done by Senator McCumber, who voted
gainst the committee's action, that the robbing
of China is extenuated when we approve a
covenant that at least will not permit her to
be robbed again?
If that is the best that can be urged in
favor of a covenant paraded as a new and
compelling moral force in the world, the rever
ence of such logic proclaims it poor indeed.
We do not know whether China entered the
war upon America's advice or not. She sought
our advice, the president admitted in his con
ference with the senate committee, and our ad
vice to her was to enter. The president was
not able to say whether that advice was the
"persuasive" factor in inducing her action or
not. We do not know whether China had rea
son to believe that if she did enter the United
States would protect her interests at the peace
table. The president says we made no prom
ises to that effect. But these considerations
make no difference in the case. In any event
China was. justified in expecting from all our
pretensions to the world that we would not
lend ourselves to her partition by Japan. We
had, before the war, posed as China's friend.
We had proclaimed the policy of the open door
in China and had opposed that of special con
cessions to powers asserting preponderant in
terests there. All our. dealing with China for
vears, financial," commercial and political
from the formulation of the Hay policies down
to the moment she asked our advice as to
whether she should break with Germany had
been of a nature to induce her confidence in
our friendship and counsel.
If we now consent even if the withhold
ing of our consent does not change the event
that the German rights in the peninsula,
given under duress, shall pass to Japan in pay
ment of services to the allies from which China
derived nothing except a change of masters, we
destroy in a moment all the influence and
standing our former relation to China had ob
tained for, us. We go back upon all our poli
cies and all our diplomacy. And for what?
To get Japap into a league which she will en
ter strengthened as a military power and in
trenched in a position in which we, as a league
member, are bound to defend her against the
nation which had regarded us as her best
America cannot approve a contract contain
ing an immoral consideration and then pretend
that the league of nations stands on any higher
plane than did the European diplomacy it dis
places. The Shantung amendment is our pro
test against the insincerity of that claim. Let
it be effective or ineffective to right the wrong,
it cleanses America's hands of the stain of
the. transaction, and less than that we can
The Pie and Doughnut Service
All but 25 of the 245 Salvation Army work
ers in France have come home. The report
of Col. William S. Barker on what has been
called "the pie and doughnut service," of which
returned soldiers have only nice . things to
say. contains elements of interest.
Women did most of the work. They were
forbidden to walk with soldiers or to have any
social relations with the men. Women work
ers under other control danced with the uni
form wearers. They had a natural preference
for officers over privates. Salvation Army "las
sies'" do not dance. The principles of the or
ganization were never ignored. There was no
dealing in tobacco, cigarettes, wine. Yet if a
wounded soldier yearned for a cigarette it was
secured for him as a matter of humanity. The
pies and the doughnuts were sold on a cash"
basis, though a luckless fellow without money
never went without them. The organization
came out even on its transactions.
The1 moral is obvious.. Dignity and con
science and devotionalism were universally
respected and came to be loved by the fight
ers. The Salvaton Army did in France what
it is doing in America and in all other lands.
It relieved those wlio needed it most without
dishonoring anyone's self-respect. Its workers
were devoted persons, thinking not of wages
or of personal comfort. Honesty and economy
were both assured from the start. Pie and
doughnuts were glorified by their associations.
One Who Knows
Ambassador Francis speaks with authority.
He knows Russia. He knows bolshevism. He
has no ax to grind, no personal ends to serve.
Ambassador Francis says that there can be
no peace in the world as long as bolshevism
is permitted to run its own course in Russia.
He says that continued noninterference will re
sult in German exploitation of Russia which
will make Germany in 10 years stronger than
it was before the war. He says, that bolshevism
unmolested menaces civilization, and may
throw all the world into anarchy.
"The man who speaks is not an alarmist.
He is merely an American who has seen ter
rible things and has drawn deductions.
David R. Francis believes that the world
cannot be made safe and healthy till the de
mocracies, have actively and strongly inter
vened in Russia. Judgment from such a source
cannot be ignored. Mr. Francis makes it
clear that the Russian miasma is a peril to
all that liberty loving men and women hold
most dear. How shall the peril be met by a
war-weary world? Cleveland Plaindealer.

Agnew's War on Squirrel.
Omaha. Aug. 2 ..-To the Editor
of The Bee: During this mmmw
my usual experiences with squirrels
have occurred, and. to my ' loss as
uual. As haa been stated before,
the timber squirrels belon to tne
order of rodents or rats. They are
simply climbing rats. This year
we had a rather dwarf cherry tree
that was only set out In ,
loaded with cherries that the limbs
hung to the ground, and we would
have secured a bushel of cherries
from that tree had it not been for
the climbing rats. They destroyed
them so fast that we had to gather
them while unripe to get any at all.
The climbing rats got half of them
as it was. There is an old-fashioned
shell bark hickory tree in our back
yard; it was so loaded with nuts
this year that the limbs hung away
down. The pests got them all. vVe
lost at least two bushels of shelled
nuts that way. They got all the
plums oft an old-fashioned damson
plum tree that my mother gave me
many years ago.
Then I have a fine walnut tree
that I raised from a nut that I
planted 16 years ago this fall, so
that the tree is 15 years old now.
It was loaded with at least three
bushels of nuts, but the climbing
rats have been able to get all but a
few of them, climbing right over
wide tin obstructions that I fastened
to the tree. It made me more than
sore to see those fine nuts taken by
the climbing rats. They eat great
quantities of feed I give my chick
ens. So that I am a loser every
year to the miserable pests at. least
$25, if not much more. Another
year I am going to kill every one
that comes onto my place and into
my trees. FRANK A. AGNEW.
Profiteering at Hotels.
Omaha, Aug. 25. To the Kditor
of The Bee: Since there is so much
talk and investigation about profit
eering, I wish to say a few words
about the profiteering of the hotels
and restaurants. For instance, ho
tels and restaurants charge 10 cents
for three doughnuts; bakers retail
them for 1 cent apiece. Rolls that
bakers retail for 1 cent hotels and
restaurants charge ,10 cents for
three. Eggs that cost about 4 cents
apiece they charge IZXA cents. Roast
beef, approximately four ounces,
they charge 50 cents for, with noth
ing but about a tablespoonful of
mashed potatoes. The items quot
ed are only an example. The prices
make them a profit from 160 to 200
per cent. I for one would concede
them 100 per cent profit, but more
than that is robbery, especially
when no stock to any extent has to
be carried, and hotels and restau
rants usually carry not more than
a few days ahead, if that much. If
you will give this publicity and
thereby help to reduce these prices
only a trifle, I assure you it will be
appreciated by a large number of
people who must patronize these
places. In conclusion I wish to say
that I am in no way alludfhg to the
hotel whose stationery I am using,
as I found their prices the most
reasonable of any.
I thank you if you will stir this
matter up so that these parasites
will see what the people think of
them. A TRAVELING MAN.
High Cost of Strikes.
The statement from Washington
that the epidemic of strikes and
lockouts in this country is costing
about $130,000,000 a month,
through lowering the production,
should proyoke thought among
every class of Americans. For the
fact of lowered production is a fact
which affects every class of Amer
icans, every American. We live to
gether. No class, no individual, is
wholly independent of other classes
and other idividuals. Our modern
life is far too complex, far too in
terlaced arid interdependent, for
any man or woman, much less any
class, to be entirely independent.
When, then, the total production of
the country is reduced through
strikes and lockouts by a sum which,
if lost through the year, would ex
ceed the entire taxable basis of the
state of Maryland, every American
is affected. Baltimore Sun.

until she found herself deep in the
woods and at the edge of the coun

gathered dozens of her feathered

Peggy was puzzled. Why after
greeting her as "Princess Peggy"
had they changed to "Miss Peggy?"
It was more than a year since the
birds had chosen her as ruler of
Birdland and all during that time
they had lovingly called her "Prin

longer your princess?" she asked.
"No, no!" screamed the birds.
"Haven't you heard the news?
Princesses have gone out of style.
Ask our war heroes they'll tell
you." And the birds turned eagerly
toward Carrie and Homer Pigeon,
Balky Sam, Bill Goat and Johnny
Bull, who evidently had been telling
yarns about their adventures at the
fighting front In Europe.

looked as though there were going
to be a big row.
