. Omaha showed up almost two new concerns
for each business day in 1919. Let us beat this
record for 1920.

the tomb on the point.
Further advance in the price of men's cloth

where, is "Mitdt-" Palmer!
Mr. Bryan insists that compromise is pos
sible andi that the president will accept it Come

Bryan. Why is an Iowa democrat?
Germany is warned that the armistice goes
right on so far as the United States is con-,
cerned. And she had better heed the warning.
If the federal food control law is insufficient
to combat profiteering, why not give the state's
anti-trust law a chance to show its efficiency?

The decline of the French birthrate is gen
erally designated as beginning after the im-
-perialistic adventures of Napoleon, whose iden
tity can easily be guessed under the pseudonym
of Trinco. Its continuance up to the opening
of the war was one of the leading sociological
phenomena of Europe and, needless to say, the
war has not improved the situation.
But neither, for that matter have some of
' the policies espoused by Premier Clemenceau
at the peace conference. His whole conduct
at the conference was that of belief that future
-wars are inevitable and that we had better get
ready for them. This may or may not be the
case, bnt it certainly was not the slogan under
which the armies were sent to fight It was
to be "a war to end war."
If people are forethoughtful and thrifty, as
the French people notoriously are, it is pos
sible that they think twice of the sort of world
into which they are asked to bring large fam
ilies. Boiton Globe,
PUBLICITY AND PROFITEERING.
Through the Washington correspondent of
the World-Herald, we are advised that United
States District Attorney T. S. Allen Is at the
national tspital, preparing to lay bare the facta
in a gigantic profiteering campaign, promoted
by Nebraska retailers. His report, it is stated,
will disclose inordinate profits exacted by the
combine. But, says the report, reflecting Mr.
Allen's views, "The present law is not sufficient
to handle the situation something that is re
grettable to the utmost." It goes on to blame
the present eongreas for failure to enact needed
legislation, and concludes that "publicity alone
can be expected to bring effective results, and
publicity, it is hinted, may be resorted to nn
stintedly within the near future."
Honest retailers will welcome the exposure
of the profiteer; more than that, they should
demand the publicity threatened, because in the
present vague and indefinite manner in which
the matter is presented, all retailers stand
accused by the district attorney of extortion.
As to the law, the Lever bill, devised by the
democratic administration for dealing with
profiteering, and called by the president and his
coadjutors sufficient, has been extended in all its
provisions by the present congress. The Mc
Nary sugar bill, desperately fought by southern
senators and congressmen, was passed before
the holidays and later signed by the president,
after much deliberation, but the signature was
accompanied by the president with a statement
that he would take no steps for the present to
enforce the law. It was designed to stabilize
prices and prevent profiteering tor sugar. The
Department of Justice has found existing laws
ample in other regards.
I,et us have publicity in this matter. Turn
the search light on the greedy, who are exact
ing undue tribute from the public. Some of its
rays, however, will disclose the federal district
attorney for Nebraska in the act of passing
, An Object Lesson in Industry.
Do you remember the time when merchants
advertised stockings to be "fast black," but
would not guarantee them so? And how you
were told that a permanent blue could not be
had In any form? It was a matter of despair,
but you were forced to watch your stockings
turn a sickly green or something as undesirable,
while your blue slowly but surely changed to
a dingy brown. The chemists remedied that,
and fast colors were; evoked .from the depths
of the reoulsive coal tar. It does not matter
where this discovery' was made,- the point is
that Germany developed it. Moreover, the
Germans juggled marvelously with the particles
of hydrogen, carbon and oxygen tfiat compose
dyes, and by manipulating their positions and
binding them fast or loose in combinations,
gave the world tints and hues that belie the
rainbow and ravish the eye.
When the war came on Germany depended
on its dye industry as one of the means whereby
it would force the world to submission. The
chemist was just an auxiliary of the soldier in
the war of conquest. The challenge fad to be
accepted by the textile manufacturers of the
world, and their chemists were set in pursuit of
the secrets held in Germany. Most of these
have been discovered, and the world has been
freed frbm dependence on the Teutonic dye
vats. Americans have led in this, and we now
have a dye industry fully capable of supplying
our needs. The "card" of colors has been stead
ily expanded, and now affords the utmost range
in tint and hue, while the chemist is steadily
bringing forth new combinations to meet the
popular whim or fancy.
Jso successful has this been that even the
president, with all his prejudice against a pro
tective tariff, has consented that dyes may have
the security afforded by prohibiting importa
tions from Germany, save under heavy duties.
Omaha is to have this week an opportunity
of seeing an exhibition of the chemists' triumph
and the dyer's art. It is an object lesson well
worth looking over, and should teach the citi
zens something of the greatness of their own
country, as well as expand their imagination
to where it can see further opportunity for na
tional greatness. '
i Alien and Sedition Laws.
Opposition has properly been made to the
Sterling sedition law in the senate because of
the provision lodging arbitrary and oppressive
power in the postmaster general. This does
not apply exclusively to Mr. Burleson, who may
not fill that position forever, but includes any
and all, who may follow him. It is dangerous
to give any man authority without review or
control, and from which no appeal may be
taken. Such a plan is contrary to the spirit of
our institutions. It is also open to question if
any man should have the authority tq, censor all
publications or communications. In preserving
the freedom of utterance, by voice or writing,
as it now exists, ample remedy is at hand for
dealing, with irresponsibles and revolutionists.
The sailing of the "soviet ark" is a proof of
this fact. To successfully combat and over
come the radical movement in America some
thing more effective than efforts at repression is
needed. Not aliens and foreign-born citizens
alone need training.in the nature and purposes
of our institutions, but so-called "good" Ameri
cans, citizens by birth, have failed tograsp the
full meaning of their privileges. For the safety
of all, advocates of violence must be dealt with
after the manner of their offending, but at the
same time some means should be found for re
storing the sturdy Americanism that made this
country great. Let us get back to our ideals, pre
serving our liberties, our privileges and our
rights, expecting progress only through intelli
gently directed industry, confident in the future
because honest in the present Individual respon
sibility to social duty must be realized.

The Austrian Tragedy

if the American people knew what the treaty
of Versailles meant they wouia never ap.
U our secretary of state did not say this, he
might have without forfeiting his right to our
And now day by day the American, people
are learning what the treaty means, ine ais
cussion of the Shantung orovlsion was illumin
ating. The recent disclosures of The Tribune
concerning the disposition of German Austria
give still more light
The treatment of Austria not only chal
lenges our feelings of humanity. It challenges
our self-interest In clain Enorlish it comes to
this: We are asked by the allies to give relief
io a situation wnicn remorseless European yuu-
tics has created.,' France demands that the
Austrian German! shall not be allowed to join
their racial kin in the former German empire.
This means that a few million Austrian! are
left in an inland state, ringed with immemorial
enemies and economic competitors, shut off
from the sea, shut off from resources essential
to the welfare of a modern state, impoverished
and destitute in the present, hopeless of the
future hopeless and helpless.
At this moment as a result of the terrific
devastation of four years of war and of the
policy of the allies since the armistice, the Aus
trian people are in the most desperate condi
tion in all Europe. I hey are dying of inanition
and of starvation. As a people they are dis
appearing from off the face of the earth.
This ghastly tragedy haunts the allied coun
sels. So Americafleast of all nations guilty of
complicity, least of all nations responsible, is
invited to save the Austrian people from the ex
tremity of the fate ordained for them by the
politics of Versailles.
. The United States will do this. But It ought
to force the allies to make concessions In re
turn for relieving their people's conscience of
the impending crime. Mr. Hoover's position,
taken when the provision against Austro-Ger-man
annexation was first fixed, should now be
adopted by our government and insisted upon.
He declared that the United States should re
fuse to approve credits until the door to Aus
tria's escape from annihilation is opened.
We have all the cards in our hands. Mr.
Wilson would not play them to save Shantung
or to save Austria. It is time we played them
at least to prevent the Austrian tragedy. The
American people would not have the blood of
this people on their hands. Let Clemenceau
play Cato at the expense of his own country,
not at ours. If the French are willing to make
Vienna a second Carthaee. it is certainly not
our interest to support the plan. The prohibi
tion of annexation violates Mr. Wilson's fa
mous principle of self-determination. He
turned his back on it, but the American people
need not and cannot.
The treaty of Versailles is the product of
European imperialism, mitigated very little by
any of the considerations upon which Mr. Wil
son was hailed a? the herald of a new and bet
ter era in international relations. We in Amer
ica have been inclined to accept it as an in
evitable if evil consequence of the situation at
Paris, but not without reservations for our own
security. We might do more than this. For
our conscience's sake we might and we ought
to refuse to be particeps criminis in the ex
ecution of Austria. We did not go to war to
wreak vengeance. We have sought nothing
for ourselves. We have given with both
hands. Let us do what we have 4he power to
do to prevent the worst folly and cruelty de
vised at Versailles. All Europe is on our door
step. Let us make a few terms before we turn
out our pockets into their hands.

CHARLES R. SHERMAN.
Why folks get sick and stay in bed is hard
for me to tell, when Sherman sells so many
things to make them strong and well. Have
you a bunion or a corn upon your proudest toe?
lie has the dope that plasters it until it s glad
to go. Has your digestion quit its job and
gone npon the bum? He knows the stuff to
speed your wheels until they buzz and hum.
Are you too fat to wear a suit of largest
ready-made? So thin that in the noonday sun
you fail to cast a shade? . You want the quick
removal of the mole upon your chin? You 11
fain recall departed hair and make it grow back
in? You want some oil to mitigate the sore
ness of a pain? Or chloroform to put to sleep
a keen, persistent pain?
i Charles Sherman is a friend of man, that
great 'bipedal bluff who takes a tablespoonful
of some well selected stuff, and after making
faces for 'a brief and formal spell can grab ..the
doctor by the hand and swear that he is well;
and since you need to salve in haste your sad
and sudden sores, he offers you the service of
a handy chain of stores. .
He's on the city water board, whose worthy
pipes and wells compete in certain stomachs
with the stuff that Sherman sells. But water
has its merits quite uncontroverted yet, though
many patent medicines are more than twice as
wet, while even ice cream sodas, as the giddy
masses think, provide a much more suitable and
satisfying drink. -

To the Editor of The Bee: I notice
that your paper is much inclined to
favor the nomination of General
Wood for president. General Wood
may be a good man for tne presi
dency, but you are going to find it a
difficult task to convince the soldiers
and ex-soldiers that he Is the right
man for the Job; in fact, if the re
publicans want to see another demo
crat elected let them nominate ft
military man, with the possible ex
ception of General Pershing. Gen
eral Wood, being in favor of uni
versal military training, would have
no possible chance of becoming
president. At least I found this to
be the consensus of opinion among
the boys while they were in camp.
I think the ex-service men will con
trol the next election, not alone by
their own votes, but the influence
that they will have on the way
other people will vote. I am a re
publican, but am not interested in
th nomination of Leonard Wood,
for I believe that It means a victory
