Respect for the law and maintenance of order. 2. Speedy and certain punishment of crime through the regular operation of the courts. 3. Pitiless publicity and condemnation of inefficiency, lawlessness and corup tion in office. X4. Frank recognition and commendation of honest anttjsfficient public service. 5. Inculcation of Americanism as the true basis of good citizenship, How does the old time feel today? Omaha grocers know how to make a display. Emeralds at $1,000 a karat are now-within the reach of the honest toiler. Scotland going dry? Weel, weel! D'ye ken ony thing like that, mon? Business in Mexico of seizing American citi zens and holding them for ransom shows no falling off, ; Maybe after a few more practice games, the Cornhuskers will win one but the season will be over by that time. ' If some of the eminent supporters of the league of nations were as accurate as they are dogmatic, their arguments would be more convincing. "T. R." once settled a great strike of anthra cite coal miners by a simple process that is open to the present administration, if it can be induced to adopt a precedent. School teachers may come to the Omaha convention with no dread of not finding! ac commodation or haying to submit to extor tionate prices at any point. Subscriptions to The Bee's free shoe fund all f o one way to furnish shoes for school chil dren who otherwise will have none. It is 100 per cent charity. Come on! One thing may be said in regard to the flirtations between the soldiers and the town girls around the court house no one has tried to conceal any of the goings-on. The president might have expressed an opinion at to the merits of a controversy in which the facts are so plain. This is no time for the executive to mince matters. Administration senators have asked the presi dent how to vote on the reservations, thus demonstrating their fitness, as, members of a tp-ordinate branch of the government. Including Florence . within tne Omaha "switching zone" should mean a considerable expansion of certain activities, but may not be especially welcome to the suburbanites who have Sought quite out north. First of the Pacific coast flyers 1o reach home was Captain Smith, whose record in the rsce will be second only to that of the "flying parson." Results have' not been tabulated, but that the aviators have achieved something for the good of the service is admitted by all. If the present ' legislative committee on profiteering has no better effect than the inquiry, made six years ago, it might as well go home. The legislature then adopted a resolution direct ing the attorney general and the county attorney to get after the food manipulators, but neither ever made a move to carry out the order. Scintillations by Sorrenson The Examiner. The Bee's numerous roasts of the manage ment of the police department in particular and the demoralized condition of the department in general are 90 per cent true, and then some more. It's The Bee's truth that stings. Truth i squashed to earth will get up again, and keep a-moving along with The Bee. No newspaper ' ever told the truth without making enemies, and The Bee should congratulate itself for the 'enemies that it has made. Say, Victor, keep on . hewing to the line, and don't you give a tinker's damn where the chips may fall. ., f " . Commissioner Ringer is well qualified to make a successful poker player. He knows how to put up a shtt blurt on a tour Hush. 5 The fact that bonding companies are mighty skeery about taking risks on Omaha policemen is pretty good 'proof that there is something .-. rotten in the management of the department i The Amalgamated Union of Omaha Pulpit Pounders No. 1 has indicted The Omaha Bee " for "in a large measure (exact dimensions not specified) instigating arid augmenting by sensa tional, misleading and malicious statements" the infamous riot of Sunday, September 28, 1919. c: The Amalgamated Union of Pulpit Pounders charges that the "vicious criticism indulged in by The Bee leads only to anarchy and riot." , The Bee, having given bonds for its appear ance for trial before the august tribunal of the pulpiteers, is allowed meantime to pursue its - devilish and anarchistic career. "I should smile," remarked Editor Rosewater,- when - served with notice of the indictment STOPPING THE MINERS' STRIKE. Whatever effect the president's orders to the soft coal miners may have, it will be .palliative and not corrective. To declare unlawful the threatened stoppage of work in all mines, with its attendant possibility of disaster to the social and industrial life of the country, is justifiable and may cause the miners to desist, but it does not touch the root of the trouble. Mr. Wilson is eminently correct in his characterization of the proposed strike as im moral and unjustifiable. The men base tfleir claim for the thirty-hour week on the fact that with 80,000 .miners in the military service,! those employed produce under a forty-eight-hour week 135,000,000 tons of coal more than peace requirements call for. They ask, therefore, that the working time be cut down and the wages increased in order that sUjnay live well and happily on less production. This rests squarely on the socialistic doctrine that happiness is found only In idleness, and that production should never exceed consumption. At this time, when the utmost is required of every man, when steady work at big wages is being offered on all ide.s, it is unreasonable that the coal miners should insist that the day's work be shortened by 25 per cent and the we k's time by 37.3 per cent, in order that more men may be engaged in bringing up the lessened amount of coal called for. The economic felly of this must be apparent to any. Society needs output now, and all should be eager to con tribute to relieve the situation. When plenty comes again, it will be time to curtail effort. The miners should also understand that it will be impossible to meet their demands with out increasing costs to everybody else, which, in turn, will react on them and leave them no better off. They are in the "vicious circle," along with the rest of us. Nor will the miners' program have any effect on the fundamental fact that wealth is unevenly distributed. Injustice in this direction is not to be met by the process they have in mind, that of shutting off production. The president and his cabinet may head off the present trouble by some method not disclosed, but they will not undo the mischief that began when the Adamson law was passed in 1916. It is time to give over the practice of old Mo kanna, who found "heavens to suit the wants of all," to stop preaching inverted principles of economics and politics, and get back to a solid foundation of human experience. The world is not a glorified loafing place. Ohio's Governor and Canton's Mayor. Something refreshing in the message Gov ernor Cojc of Ohio sent to Mayor Poorman of Canton, where a strike riot is impending: The press dispatch says: , At the same time Governor Cox sent a telegram to Mayor Charles E. Poorman of Canton, notifying him that he would be ex. pected to bring about immediate order. The telegram stated that if this were not done, Mayor Poorman would be summoned to the governor's office Monday to show cause why he should not be removed from office imme diately. Suppose some such order as that had been sent to Omaha on the afternoon of September 28, would the riot and lynching have taken place, or the court house have been burned? Just a difference between Ohio and Nebraska; that's all. Was the Armistice a Mistake? A thought that has lodged in the back of a great many heads has been voiced by General Harries, who says the armistice was a blunder. No one who has studied the war in its broader phases disputes the. great moral effect that would have been produced by the spectacle of an Allied army marching down Unter-den-Lin-den. Nor is it questibned-4hat the great mass of the Germans, in and out of the military serv ice, cling to the belief that their acceptance of the terms presented by Foch was an act of magnanimity, graciously conceded Ay an un beaten army. Did not Marshal Foch and those associated under his command have a higher purpose than to give the purblind German people an object lesson? Foch knew, as did Ludendorff, that Germany was beaten. The military could only prolong a struggle, the end of which was ad mitted. But to bring that end about meant the expenditure of thousands of lives and millions of money. It has been explained that Foch generously foreclosed his opportunity for win ning a triumph in the field in order that he might bring an end to the fighting. He did not want to accept . responsibility for further slaugher, and in many an American home this sentiment of his is appreciated as only the family circle can. - Conceding that the Germans regard them selves as unbeaten, hate the nations opposed to them, and look ahead, to "the day" once more, is it not quite within the range of probabilities that the inexorable logic oKevents will drive home the truth? With their navy destroyed by their own act, their merchant vessels taken over by the victors, their emperor a fugitive, their armies disbanded and generally disarmed, their constitution revised by a War council at Paris, it must be plain even to the most stolid of them that something went wrong. As they di vide the fruit of their toil through generations to come wif.h those they despoiled in their hour of triumph, they may realize that Ger many did not win the war. Teaching the lesson in this fashion is quite as effective and much more humane than shooting it into them. Common Sense Will Save Us. "A little common sense would have avoided this litigation," writes Mr. Justice Preston of the Iowa supreme court in handing down an opinion. He is right on that point, and his terse comment may be equally applied to a great many things that now disturb the public mind. A little cool reasoning, a disposition see the other fellow's side of the case, will make comparatively easy what has the appear ance of being-' an insurmountable difficulty. When a thing is too high to climb over, a workable plan is tojfb around it. Passes exist in the loftiest mountain ranges. Always a way out of any trouble may be devised, if only common sense be applied, and it is on the com mon sense of most that the American people must now rely. Too little of it has been ex hibited of. late. Many things have occurred to excite people, whose easily aroused emotions or sympathies have been played upon until they are all upset Stop till the dizziness has passed, and then let reason, not self-interest be your guide, and the wav ou will sooji ap Remembering Roosevelt From the New York Times. Roosevelt week brings an opportunity that comes but seldom in the life of any nation. A great historic figure is passing from the world of contemporary-act, the world of the morning paper, and into the Vorld of memory and of history. Such a little time ago men loved and praised a fellow-citizen, or disagreed with him; it was always as man to manX The intensely personal feeling shut, off the larger vision. Even when some ranked him next to Washing ton and Lincoln, the judgment which purported to be historic was mainly partisan. Now we know, or are beginning to know, the great pa triot and leader of men in his true and per 'manent proportions. We use the flag as symbol of the nation's tribute 'to all our heroic dead; but we are using it today with a difference. Others have been shrouded in it and laid away amid the hush of awe. For Roosevelt we gave it to relays of swift-footed, clean-limbed youngsters, who car ried it across the great state he loved, and then fronf post to post in the city of his nativity. Of what other American has youth and swift strength and the mounting of joy of life been so fit an expression? At the stations where the flag lay overnight it was guarded by boys who were often chosen because they were not born of our people, but had made themselves Americans. Among our great men no one has expressed so vigorously our hospitality to all who love freedom and the solemn obligations of those who accept it. At each station a new star was sewed upon the flag by a group of girls and young women. In one of our schools, of the five who sewed each an angle of the star .ftfur were descended from veterans of the Revolution, the Civil war, the Spanish war, and the Great War, and the fifth was daughter of a naturalized Hungarian. That would have meant much to Roosevelt, for he was the first great American to express for us the transcendent-dignity of all womanhood. Others of our leaders have been reverenced , devoutly, mourned in the deep heart of the-nation. The memory of this man lives in the spirit of manly youth and vigor, of feminine beauty and stead fastness. In the final stage of the flag, which will bring it to the grave at Sagamore, it will soar aloft in the sky. In that, too, there is a memorable symbol. In his lifetime fortune's buffets and rewards came to him in inverse order. There were dec ades when, in his public appearances, the heav ens never once failed to smile on his robust and joyous face. He had only to will a thing and it happened. Then came a time when it seemed that nothing he touched could prosper. The greatest crisis which the world has ever endured came in his prime, and he had no active part in it, though the moral effect of his influ ence on the issue may some day be reckoned as his greatest accomplishment. To realize what that meant one would have to be .as am bitious as he was as eager for the larger life, as full of the flame of patriotism. But long before, with the bullet of an intended assassin in his flesh, he had expressed the thought that now sustained him. A man's happiness is only "to spend and to be spent." To its last pulse his great strength was spent for his country. That is the thought which men will remember, which will carry his fame forward through the ages. High Prices for Higfy Times How shall we define a "normal price" to day? Are these times normal? And prices, moreover, have no fixed relation to prosperity. What we call the cost of living has actually no real relation to prices. For while the pres ent price level is high, the human effort that must be put forth to live, which is the actual "cost of living," is as low as it ever has been far lower for us than ever in any one coun try in the history of the world simply be cause in most cases a day's work will buy as. much and sometimes more than before the war and because a given' amount of labor will str cure an amount of necessities and luxuries that men, say 25 years ago, never dreamed of possessing. There is no doubt that salaried people and unorganized laborers have suffered from the fluctuating dollar and that' speculators have made temporary large winnings, but, by and large, the cost of living in the sense of this country's productiveness, the yield of its nat ural" resources, the accessibility of its supplies brought about by the vast network of distri bution, is on an excellent basis.

Despite the present high prices, King George's tailor bills are prob ably half of what King Edward's used to be In a year. The late king rarely wore the same suit of clothes more than half a dozen times and often only once or twice, whilst King George usually wears a suit many ti.mes before it is removed from the royal wardrobe. Railway ties used in southern Rus sia are salted for preservation. The discovery of the efficacy of salt for the purpose was made accidentally some 80 years ago. The telegraph poles of Sebastopol soon rotted be low the ground, and one of the work men tried the experiment of putting a. quantity of salt into the hole pre pared for the reception of the base of the pole. JThe wood lasted five times as long as usual, and the ex periment was repeated and extended to railway ties. In factories where needles are made the grindstones throw off great quantities of mirmte steel par. tides, although the dust is too fine to be perceptible to the eye. Breath ing the dust shows no immediate effect, but gradually sets up irrita tion, usually ending in pulmonary consumption, and formerly almost all the workmen died before the age of 40. Ineffective attempts were made to screen the- air by gauze or linen guards for nose and mouth. At length the use of the magnet was suggested, and now masks of magnetized steel wire are worn by the workmen, and effectu ally remove the metal dust before the air is breathed. IN THE BEST OF HUMOR.

CLEAVF.S. Francis W, Parker School. You are always .studying some people, some country, some scien tific question. You are never through with it when you have learned the facts. You are never through with it that is, till you have expressed your feeling about it in some way. Write a poem, make a play, deliver an oration, or com pose a story; draw a picture, make a son?, take vour tools and build something, take your clay and model something. Mary spent a month studying the Indian question. The more she looked up histories and government reports and books on mythologyt the more she sympathized with the Indians in their losing struggle with the civilized white man. Here is the speech she imagined a Black foot chief might have made to his people. She tried to use metaphor, as the Indians did. "They are vul tures." She tried to use adjectives that expressed feeling as well as picture, "cold eyes," "sleek hair," "pale skin." But the most impor tant point is that he was not through with the Indian question until she had expressed her feeling in some way. .The Blackfoot's Warning. "My people," began the Blackfoot chief, "there is a dreadful plague come to our country which -our medicine men cannot cure. I have returned from the lodges of the pale faces. They are vultures, wait ing to prey upon us. They have a look in their cold eyes that I dread. Their skin . is pale as the rising moon, an evil sign; their hair is sleek as the serpent's skin. This means sorcery. Surely they are a new kind of devil. "These men are to be feared. The pale face carries in his hand a stick that speaks fire and death. It flashes lightning and speaks thunder. They come to us with smiling faces and take our lands and lakes and streams where we and our forefathers have played and hunted and fished. They kill our buffalo and trap our beaver. Beware of them! Heed my warn ing! These men are to be feared. This is the sign that the Great Spirit has sent us." (Next week, "How to Use Map.") Bovs' and Girls' Neewspaper Service. Copyright, 1919, by J. H.

They don't use fishing pole or tackle, these veteran fishermen, and they catch no more fish than is needed for themselves and their families. From that you may know they are not men, There is a little, brown veteran of Manitoba, the "North Woods, and Yellowstone Park named mink, who is worth watching if you have a chance to see him. He is only about two feet long and his wife is smaller, but they can fish. He has a white ,chin, a long, bushy tail and short legs, snd belongs to the weasel family. When he fishes he is apt to settle himself on a convenient rock in mid stream and there await the coming of a fat trout or delectable salmon the best is none too good for him. Then suddenly he will dive and come up with a good sized fish in his mouth, half his own length, per haps. When he regains his footing on the rock he lays the fish down and quickly stops its struggles by a sharp bite at the back of its head. You may sometimes trace another veteran fisherman, called Otter, by the broken shells of the shell fish, of which he Is very fond. He leaves the scattered fragments on the banks of streams and lakes, and among the rocks. His coat also, is of brown fur, and it is so valuable that, in order to prevent men from taking it from him, he hides away near secluded lakes or water courses, far from human habitations. ' ' MINK THE VtTCRAN He is almost twice the size of fish erman mink, being often 40 inches long, and looks something like a seal when he is partly in the water. Fisherman Otter is the champion of all the veterans who wear ,fur. No fish is too swift for him, none too adroit He is an expert swim mer' as well as fisherman and he darts about under water with won derful speed. He dives, swims or floats as occasion requires and he al ways catches his fish. (Next week: "Four-Footed Thrift.") Boys' and Girls' Newspaper Service Copy right, 1919, by J. H. Millar.
