BRINGING ORDER TO OMAHA.
With Major General Wood in command of
the whole situation, the Omaha police force
under the capable direction of an experienced
army officer of high rank, 1,400 United States
soldiers on guard, assisted by the former serv
ice men who are organized in the American
Legion, order is fast being restored in Omaha.
General Wood is of the ofjinion that for the
present wise precautions should be observed,
to the end that no further outburst of the ex
plosive spirit be engendered. To this end he
has advised calling off the electric parade, and
the abandonment of any program that would
bring together such an assemblage as might
encourage further unseemly displays. The wis
dom of this course must be apparent.
It will not be easy for Omaha to postpone
the great Ak-Sar-Ben celebration, but it will be
far better than to run the risk of any more
rioting. Restoration of normal conditions will
depend on the complete subsidence of the fever
that burned in the crowd on Sunday. This is
to be brought about only by the careful be
havior of each citizen for himself, submitting
patiently to the guardianship of the men under
General Wood, who aim only to bring about or
derly conditions under which the life of the
city, may continue. ,

eliminate all likelihood of any further mob

the failure of the proper authorities to act with

public men figured. The idea was to return the
qegro population to a new country of their

coast of Africa, where they would be free from
bondage, enjoy the fruits of their own indus

Milking to Music. ,
Long has the bucolic poet sung the pretty
milkmaid; her eyes, her ankles, her grace and
beauty, have inspired the rural muse, and her
way through life has been lightened by the soft
glow of poesy and praise. Only now has it
been discovered that this romantic pursuit has
its utilitarian aspect. Cows give a more abun
dant yield of milk when the process of inducing
them to part with it is accompanied by music.
Down at a New York exhibition of electric ap
pliance the milker was worked out on bossy
with and without the accompaniment of the
heavenly muse's best efforts. Soothed and
softened by the sweet strains, the gentle Alder
neys, Jerseys and Holsteins, on whom the ex
perimenters were engaged, produced lacteal re
ward for the seekers from 10 to 12 per cent in
excess of what came when the milking was all
the cow had to worry about. And, oh, ye high
brows! . Rejoice, for bossy gave more milk
when she was pleased- by the noble harmonies'
of the classics than when her intelligence was
insulted by jazz. On what basis her discrimin
ation is established has not been demonstrated
yet, but her preference was noted. To be sure,
the jazzers have a perfect comeback here, and
may say that the selection that will suit a cow
is not fit for human consumption, but the argu
ment will not rest there. It also opens a great
future for the phonograph, and soon no dairy
shed will be complete without records made
from Tetrazini, Galli-Curci, Caruso, Boncia,
John McCormick, Fiske O'Hara, and all that
glorious list, whose wonderful melodies not
only ravish the human mind, but 'also make
cows give better milk and more of it.
Demobilization and Drouth.
Secretary Baker of the War department an-1
nounces that demobilization is completed. This
is the hour looked forward to by the bibulous
as the beginning of their short respite before
the entrance of nation-wide prohibition. A
short break in the drouth will permit the re
plenishing of cellars, and, on the experience
since July 1 this should be accomplished in a
more systematic and effective manner. But At
torney General Palmer says nay, not Until the
treaty is ratified will the ban be lifted. This
will array against the senators the mighty
forces of the thirsty, who might survive the,
delay incident to the bringing of formal peace
were it not for the fact that the process in
cludes inactivity of the bartenders. In time to
come some historian with a sense of humor
may compose from this a chapter of history
worthy to go alongside the record made in the
State department between 1913 and 1916, but
the trouble will be to get folks to believe that
Americans ever allowed themselves to do such
ridiculously foolish things.

Geneva Home of Peace
From the New York Tribune.
Geneva, to be the capital of the League of
Nations, is described in a communication by
Ralph A. Graves to the National Georgraphic
society as follows:
"Seated serenely on both banks of the
River Rhone where it leaves the limpid waters
of Lake' Geneva as a placid stream, it contrast
to the muddy turbulence of its ingress at the
other end of the lake, Geneva is not the metrop
olis of the miniature republic of Switzerland,
for Zurich surpasses it in population by SO per
cent and Berne is the capital. But it is doubt
ful whether before the world war any other city
of its size was visited by as many tourists, for
it was the main gateway into the world-famous
'playground of Europe.
"Although its recorded history goes back
beyond the Christian era, to the time when
Julius Caesar, in his commentaries on his first
expedition into Gaul, mentions it as a strong
hold of the Allobroges, its growth has been
phenomenal only in its leisureliness. Today,
after 20 centuries, it has less than one-third the
population of the century-old capital of the
United States. ' -'
"The city enjoys the distinction of being
the birthplace of the International Red Cross,
but also has some dark chapters in its past the
religious excesses of the Reformation, when the
persecuted became the persecutors.
"Rousseau, of whom Napoleon said, 'With
out him France could not have had her revolu
tion," and the patriot Bonivard, whose trials
Byron immortalized as the 'Prisoner of Chillon.'
were Genevans. Farel, the Billy Sunday of
his day, who could not be made to desist from
preaching, even though the women of his con
gregation dragged himvup and down the aisles
of the church by his beard, made the lake city
his headquarters during his ascendency. And
John Calvin, 'who found Geneva a bear garden
and left it a docile school of piety,' was virtual
dictator here for a quarter of a century.
"One of the most picturesque figures in the
history of Geneva during this period was Fran
cis de Bonivard, who, when his victorious
friends rushed into the dungeon at Chillon, cry
ing, 'Bonivard, you are freed 1' who responded
with the query, 'And Geneva?' Upon being as
sured that his city was also saved, he went
"By one of those curious chances upon
which hinge events of monumental moment, the
young French philosopher, John Calvin, a na
tive of Picardy, passed through Geneva one
evening on his way to Strassbourg. He had
intended spending only one night; but Farel,
hearing of his arrival, rushed to him and with
the fiery impetuosity which characterized everv
act of his life convinced Calvin that it was his H
duty to remain and assist in the organization of
a theocratic state.
"The austerity of the Calvin code presents
many amusing phases to the modern reader.
For example, a hair dresser was imprisoned be
cause he made one of his clients too beautiful.
Any man who swore 'without necessity' was re
quired to take off his hat, 'kneel down in the
place of his offense, clasp his hands and kiss the
earth.' The wearing of silk or embroidered
hose was prohibited; likewise the adornment -of
one's person with chains of silver or gold, and
eating or drinking in taverns outside of the city.
Hosts and hostesses were enjoined to warn
their guests to be in their own lodgings after
the trumpet sound to the watch or the ringing
of the bell' (9 o'clock at night).

cil, directed the whole population to fast and
pray for the sufferers.

America and Europe
To Americans distressed by current tenden
cies in their own country a local humorist has
just taken refuge behind Byron's line, "My na
tive land, good-night I" there may be a certain
melancholy consolation in the reflection that
Europe is in an even worse way. The formerly-Grand-but-not-now-so-Grand
Admiral von Tir
pitz observes in his book now published:
, For the future, as I view it, the small
states of Europe will disappear in a trans
atlantic combine of Anglo-Saxons, and the
strength of Europe, which reposes in the ad
justment of manifold independent nations and
civilizations within the narrowest limits, will
decay; with its passing the wealth of Europe
will die as well, with its ascendancy and the
possibility' of any position in the world.
All this could have been averted, it would
appear, if Germany had . been allowed to con
quer Europe and merge its "manifold indepen
dent civilizations" into one culture, dominated
by the political ideals of Berlin and the artistic
canons of Munich. But this altruistic effort of
the German people was thwarted by its bene
ficiaries, and nothing is left but a subjection
However, there are distinctions even be
tween Anglo-Saxons, to which the German ad
miral is blind. One of them is indicated by a
certain Harold Spender, writing in The London
Chronicle. Discussing Mr. Bullitt's entertain
ing publications of what must be supposed to
have been revealed to him under the seal of
secrecy, he observes: '
I do not believe there is any British jour
nalist who would have acted like Mr. Bullitt.
But they have other ideas of these things in
America, as Mr. Balfour's mission discovered.
The writers in that great country
cannot be expected to respect the con
fidences of Europeans in the same way as
Mr. Spender appears to be writing for some
purpose to the ittainment of which facts may
be sacrificed as readily as the grammatical use
of the language somewhat inaccurately known
as English. Mr. Bullitt, who once was a news
paper man. betrayed confidences in his capacity
as an official of the State department; but this
does not necessarly prove that all Americans
would do what he did. However, Spender no
less than Tirpitz is obsessed by the vision of an
American people which regards itself as so
superior to-Europeans that in dealing with them
it is absolved from the ordinary rules of de
cency. Brooklyn Eagle.

Criticize Chief of Police.
Omaha, Sept ?8. To the Editor
of The Bee: When an infuriated
mob marches through the streets
of Omaha to participate in a race
riot to avenge the white race against
the deperdations of the black, there
will be no one to blame but the au
thorities, who have repeatedly come
to the lassistance and protection of
negroes who have committed grave
assaults upon white girls.
Can it be that we have the specta
cle of our esteemed Chief of Police
Eberstein coming to the assistance
of the black who a few nights ago
perpetrated one of the worst crimes
against the white race in the his
tory of Omaha. In a Saturday paper
Chief Eberstein is credited with the
statement that he is not sure Will
Brown, the negro, who has been
identified by both Agnes Lobeck and
Milliard Hoffman, as the man who
robbed them and then committed
a grave assault upon the former, as
the guilty man, is the man who
committed the assault. Despite the
fact that the Lobeck girl em
phatically declared the negro
(Brown) to be the man who as
saulted her, and further described
clothing he wore on the night of the
crime, which tallied with clothing
found In the room in which Brown
was apprehended, our chief is, or
at least, according to a printed
statement credited to him, in doubt
whether Brown is the man wanted,
giving as his reason for his doubt
that the negro denies his guilt.
While it is true that the negro
(Brown) has not been proved guilty
by a Judge and 1ury, the facts in the
case point so conclusively to his
guilt that it is a poor time for our
chief of police to start whitewashing
the black. Is it necessary that the
man be caught red-handed to prove
him guilty? Does not the identifica
tion of the negro by the girl and her
escort, and the fact that the cloth
ing described by her as those worn
by her assailant, being found in his
room when he was apprehended,
overshadow the word of the de
generate? There is little doubt in the minds
of the citizens of Omaha, particu
larly those who live in the vicinity
of the Lobeck home and who are
acquainted with the true facts sur
rounding the apprehending of the
negro and his subsequent identifica
tion by Miss Lobeck, that the guilty
man has been caught. If there is a
miscarriage of justice in this case,
will not the conseqences be charged
directly to those who mete out jus
tice, or, as has so often been the
case in many instances of this kind
Not so long ago a negro, proven
guilty of assault upon a white girl,
was sentenced to 90 days in jail.
In what other state in this country
could a black beast assault a white
girl and get away with it with a 90
day sentence? In most states he
would have been lucky to have es
caped being lynched, and if he did
escape death at the hands of citi
zens, he would be sentenced to
nearer 90 years than 90 days.
It would be gratifying to many
of your readers if you would show
the same laudable activity in the
columns of your paper in bringing
about justice in this case that you
showed in the Everett Scott case.
If Chief Eberstein does not have
enough policemen to properly patrol
the streets of Omaha so that they
can be made safe for women and
young girls to walk upon, then it is
high time that people see that he
is provided wtih1 enough policemen.
In the meantime we hope that the
man Brown, if guilty, is punished
in a manner that will be a warning
to all that the people of Omaha in
tend to protect their, women and
girls. Very respectfully yours,

ROLLO, the monkey, chattered
loudly in pain and anger as he
rubbed his badly nipped nose. He
was scared, too, but his rage over
his hurts was greater than his fear,
and if the dark creatures had come
back to the black robber's roost, it
would have found him fighting mad.
But the dark creature didn't come
back. It rushed away so quickly
that Billy and the monkey never
saw more than a flash of black.
"Was that the black robber?"
Billy called down to Peggy.
"I couldn't see," she answered.
"Everything happened so suddenly."
"Ee-ee-eek! Robber or no robber,
I'll give him a thrashing if he comes
back," chattered the monkey, pat

he began to tear the nest to

Billy quickly. "If the diamonds are

At that Rollo leaped nimbly into

help him search, found that this was
true. There was no sign of a dia

formed the nest. ,
"Can I wreck the roost . now?"
asked the monkey. But Billy had a
better idea. He wanted to catch the
black robber when the black rob
ber came back to his roost.
In Billy's pocket was a long fish
line. He took this out and carefully
made a loop in one end. He spread
this loop open in the nest, and cov
ered it with twigs so tnat it coum

a little hole in the bottom of the
nest and poked the other end of

Billy, and away he raced with Peg

out again In a peculiar voice. The
children ran straight for it, and in
a moment found themselves beneath
the monkey's nest. "Thief! Thief!"
sounded the call close at hand, but
now they could not tell the direction
whence It came. "Thief! Thief!"
They all looked up toward Rollo s
home in the tree. Then all three
gave a cry of surprise. ,
Sparkling among the twigs of the
outside wall of the nest was Mrs.
Holt's diamond brooch.
'Thief! Thief!" The monkey is a

"I'm not a thief!" screeched
Rollo. dashing up toward the glit
