What The Bee Stands For:
1. Respect for the law and maintenance of
Order. - ?
2. Speedy and certain punishment of crime
through the regular operation of the
courts. v .
3. Pitiless publicity and condemnation of
' inefficiency, lawlessness and corup-
ion in office. '
4. Frank recognition and commendation
, of Jionest and efficient public service,
5. Inculcation of Americanism as the true
basis of good citizenship.
BRING OUT ALL THE FACTS.
The case taken to, the grand jury by the
local machinists' anion, in which the rights of
a young man are said to have been ignored,
first by a policeman, second by the police judge,1
and finally by an attorney, deserves fullest in
vestigation. On the surface it looks like one
of the most remarkable outrages ever com
mitted. That a boyr a stranger in the city, should be
arrested at the door of a hotel where he was
about to apply for lodging, is remarkable in
itself. That he should v be charged with
vagrancy, in spite ol the fact thai, he was' pos
sessed of $130 in cash, a paid-up working card
in a great international labor union, and other
documents that would easily prove his charac
ter, is a sign of malicious stupidity on part of
the officer whejjnade the arrest.
When arraigned in police courtthe judge
should have given the case at least sufficienflt
tention to determine if the story told by the
victim had any merit. Instead, the perfunctory
process of listening to what the arresting officer
had to say and then inflicting a sentence of
fifteen days in jail was gone through, apd the
lad was hurried without ceremony to the
county jail. '
Finally, the course of the attorney who se-v
cured his release, with the incidental sequestra
tion of $100 in cash, as an earnest that the fee
of the freeholder who qualified on the bail bond
would be paid, also invitesinspection.
All in all, the case is so remarkable in its
outward aspect that for the good of Omaha
the facts should be completely sifted. The
action of the machinists in moving to secure a
full inquiry is commendable. It may bring out
the truth, and possibly suggest that further re
forms are needed in the police system, or lack
of system. '

" Palmer and the Profiteers.
Bristling with fierce, righteous indignation,
the -attorney general of the United States
launches a broadside against the coal mer
chants who propose to be allowed to gain an
excess profit from th strike. If they attempt
any such thing, Mr. Palmer tells them, he will
"hdo something so dreadful as to hold them. ever
after. It is so consoling to think we' have at
.the head of the Department of justice a man
so resolute. Yet, as the first rush of en
thusiasm passes, and a cold, reasoning glance is
taken at .results, the citizen must come to the
conclusion that the cartoonist wasright; Mr.
Palmer went hunting, equipped with a mighty
arsenal of legal and moral weapons, and came
home with a miserable bag. of game from a
woods filled with the biggest and ripest sort.
We realize that he is placed in a peculiar
position. Parading himself just now in a try
out as an aspirant for the TTonor of succeeding
his chief as leader of the democratic party, Mr.
Palmer wants to do the right thing, and at the
same time doesn't want to lose a vote. He re
calls how- a few years ago his revered and
respected leader proclaimed that the man who
sought to make money out of the panicky con
ditions created by democratic monkeying with
business conditions would be, hanged 'at least
as high as Haaman and let it go at that. A
resounding declaration at the critical moment
has well served the democratic chieftains in
lieu of action ever since they were in power.
Just as the government was looted on war
contracts, and as private consumers hve been
held up by conscienteless price boosters before,
during and after the war, so it will probably
continue until people may relieve themselves
by turning out the administration under which
profiteering has come to be an almost exact
science. Mr. Palmer might give the country
great service, but he, probably, will not. -.
Terrible Tragedy of Kieff
Something of the terrible conditions in Rus-

from the following account of conditions found
at Kieff after that city was evacuated y the
"reds" before the approach of the anti-bdlshe-vik
army. It is written by a correspondent of

Making Cotton Crop Pay,
With cotton quoted at New York around,
35 cents , a pound, a Louisiana planter is re
ported vto have sold his season's crop at 75
cents, at which rate 800 bales brought him
$360,000. Good , cotton land, producing' normal
yield, willbing forth around a bate, to the acre.
Assuming for safety's, sake that the crop in
question was the total yield of 1,000 acres, it
stands a gross return yvf $360 an acre, or rather
more than is possible even for sugar beets, the
most remunerative of northrn grown crops. It
is extremely probable that some exceptional
circumstances attended the) sale in question, for
no other similar case is yet reported. The ugly
fact is, however, that the cotton yield for the
current year is only a little over half the normal.
Voluntary restrictions of acreage and an un
favorable season is responsible for this. Cotton
agreed toreduce the Bret seeded to eotton for
1919. Their avowed aim was to reduce the
yield and keep up the price. Through the un
expected assistance of an unfavorable season
the scheme succeeded better than its projectors
pjanned, and the world will be held up on ac
count of the. short 'crop. When some short
sighted middle western farmers proposed to
restrict the area sown to wheat they were
roundly denounced; the 'miners have been called
immoral for going on strike iif face of winter,
creating an artificial scarcity of coal. What
will be said df the cotton planter who delib
erately took such means to keep up the price of
his product, which is so badly needed for the
welfare of the world?
Strikes That Settle Themselves.
The law of compensation still operates,
despite the1 clamor of the reformers who would
do away with it At Itast two annoying and
vexatious strikes have been settled in accord
with the everlasting rule that' requires a bal
ance. For many weeks shipping has been tied
up in New York harbor bythe contumacy of
the longshoremen. These went on an unauthor
ized strike, defying "the officers of their inter
national union and refusing to listen to anyone
who did not coincide with their demands. It
was the beginning of the "revolution" which so
many of the "advanced" are talking about
Slowly the fires that kept the passions of the
men heated to the point of unreason have died
away, and the strike has collapsed for want of
vitality. The same is true of the steel strike.
It was as ill-advised as that of the longshore
men, or the coal miners, and is coming to an
inglorious end for the same reason. "Thrice
armed is he who hath his quarrel just," but any
cause that rests on "a basis of naked power" is
doomed in advance. Strikes to be won must
contain a promise of good to all and not merely
an advantage to a few. 1
, Kieff today is a city of horrors. I do not
know whether in any other town in which they
have ruled the bolshevists have left such
ghastly traces of their fiendish work as they
have here. The Ukrainian government was
driven out in January last, and for roughly 200
days from then the bolshevists were in occu
pation. -Oaevery one of these 200 'days ex
ecutions took place by order of the . "chrez
vechaikas" (commissions for combating the
counter revolution). . v - ...
No one knows how many persons perished.
Popular gossip puts the number at 30,000 to
40,000. This is obviously an exaggeration, but
reckoning by the number of bodies which were
found (buried or unburied) at different points
about the cityi there must 'have been st. least
2,000 victims. -
There were few men of any education among
r!i Vipff rnmmissianVs. This, and a charac
teristic disrespect for any humane feelings, my
i account for the horrible way in which they
left the bodies of their victims partially or en
tirely unburied. The anatomical theater of the
university was used as a mortuary for the' ex
ecuted dead, and the volunteer army when
they , entered the city found about 200 corpses
lying there in a state ofliorrible putrefaction.
In a rooTh in a private house 140 more were
found, locked up and left to rot. -
Even today, a fortnight after the delivery, a
terrible odor, which chloride only partially
stifles invades one's nostrils continually in cer
tain parts' of the town. Among the "sights" of
Kieff are the houses where the two chrez
vechaikas, the one for Kieff the other for the
Ukraine, held theirsittings and tortured their
victims, cither to wring information from them,
or, as it appears in many cases; simply from a
fiendish pleasure in human, sufferings.
The Kieff chezvechaika, which was ac
counted the most cruel, sat in a house in the
street of Sadowa, a gloomy by-road, darkened
by the thick foliage of chestnut trees. Behind
it is a small garden, in which is a shallow pit
not 'five feet deep. From this were taken the
bodies of 124 persons who were murdered a
few days before Kieff was captured one'tiight's'
work. Many of the bodies were mutilated by
having pieces of skin in the shape of epaulettes
cut from their shoulders and strips from the
thighs in imitation of the 'stripes on an .officer's
At one side of the garden is a garage or
coach-house. This was used as the place of
execution. The walls are pitted with revolver
bullets and splashed with reel stains; the floor
is still glutinous; the , smell makes one turn
away sickened after a Very short ispection. An
English governess, Miss Billingsley, who lives
in this street, has told, me of the awful shrieks
which could be heard coining from this house
night after, night. The. house, itself is littered
with an almost comic collection of objects, ap
parently looted by muibers of the. committee
from private houses. There is furniture of all
kinds, cbcks, toys, a bird-cage, photographs,
gramophones, books, heaped together anyhow.'
The first volume picked at hazard from a big
pile proved to be a Tauchaitz copy of Mark
Twain's "The Innocents Abroad."'.
The house of the Ukraine committee has a
similar slaughter house, also a garage. This is,x
if anything, worse than the other. There is an
inspection pit, wjiich was used as a drain; from
it there comes up" the horrible reek of blooa. ;A
common chorping block beside it is soaked in
it. An old bayonet lies on the floor near by.
Twetve bodies ere found in the garden here,
stuffed anyhow into a pit and barely covered
France is fighting the high cost of lining

Kieff somehow manages to bear all this hor
ror lightly; the people seem to have thrown it
from their minds like a nightmare. The streets
are full; pretty girls walk about bareheaded in
summer white; the picturesque figures of the
Cossack officers catch the eye at every turn. As
one walks in the gardens aboye the Dnieper
and looks on he beauty of the moonlit stream,
and listens to laughter and the tinkle of pianos
from houses hidden by the trees, it ishard to
believe that the whole story is not a dream.
Prof. Florinski.. professor of Slav philology
at Kieff university, was shot by a woman called j,
C I .1.-1 l. '1 K
Kosa jsenwanz, wnne tne- crrezvecnaiKa was
still sitting, as he was in the middle of a philip
pic against bolshevist rule. This woman, Rosa
Schwartz, is commonly spoken of as a member
of the committee, and is credited with having
executed people regularly herself. Whether
this was so seerrts doubtful. She, was tried,
condemned to death, and shot a few days after
the capture of,-the city. At her trial evidence
was produced"to show that she was a prostitute,
a favorite of severalmembers of the committee,
who was used by them as a, decoy to entrap and
denounce " persons who professed views un
favorable to the government. This much, and
the fact of her murder of Prof. Florniski, seems
to be established. I say this because the figure
of a Jewess as a prominent member of chrez
vechaika committee is becoming legendary.
There was a Jewess at Vinnitza who shot per
sons witlrher .wn revolver; there was another
at Minsk who signed death warrants. Did they
all exist? So much that is terrible is true that
much more that is simply hearsay is readily
All chezvechaikas seem to have equaled
the tribunals of the French revolution in
ferocious cruelty. The methods used at Kieff
seem to have surpassed the rest. Of many of
the tortures used it is impossible to speak.
Latsis, a Lett who was latterly president of the
Ukraine committee, wrote an article in the Red
Knife, the official organ of the bolshevist gov
ernment, published at Moscow, in which he
discussed the question of torture, reasoning, for
instance, as to whether nails driven under the
finger nails were as effective as the slow ex
traction of teeth. ' ' .
It is difficult to believe that there are per
sons in the world who are opposed to the sup
pression by every.means available of a regime
which gives full play to the bestial passions of
the fiends in human form who do'these things.

Omaha, Nov. 2. To the Editor'
of The Bee: In your . column,
"Who Is Who?" among the candi
dates, you mention me as a "poli
tician." Tlfenks for the application.
The meaning of the word, according
to the dictionary, is "one versed In
the science of government.';
I believe, however, that the proper
definition for politician is one who
knows what he Is doing on election
day. JERRY HOWARD.
Where Was the Chief?
Omaha, "Nov. 8. To the Editor
of The Bee: Much has been said
In the Omaha and other papers re
garding the, burning of our million
dollar court house September 28. I
will ask if it is not a fact that the
chief of the Omaha police at 11 a.'
m. on day of Are was advised that
a mob was forming for the purpose
of lynching the negro?' This being
so, he had ample time to have called
on 100 or more men to assist him
and hia forces that could have pro
tected the building and negro
against any outside mob of 5,000
men or more. During ,the? civil war
irf 1862 myself and a nartvof other
kunion soldiers were detailed to
guard a passage through the moun

to hold same at all hazard acainat
500 southern cavalry soldiers, Which'
we aid. Jtiaa we not done so we
would have been called cowards and
would have disgraced the union
army. We had much less protec
tion than the Omaha police force
would have had. It does, seem to
me and others so silly to think that
an unorganized and unarmed lot of
boys should have been allowed to
have taken and burned the court
house as against the old organized
armed force of police if they had a
leader. Where, oh where was our
chief of police all this time that he
did not have his force fully organ
ized? If he was in the United
States arrny in charge of a company
of men and allowed his post or fort
to be taken when he had 100 or
more men under his command, he
would have been court-martialed,
convicted and drummed out of
