ON THE WATER WAGON NOW.
Today the United States of America enters
on a new era, for from now on the manufacture,
sale or handling of intoxicating liquor of any
kind for beverage purposes ia forbidden by the
fundamental law of the land. For the first time
in all the world's history a great free, self
governing people has determined to abolish
strong drink. To others the inhibition has been
presented by autocratic power, or by its
religious practice, but only the Americans ever
solemnly determined upon it as a policy and
then transmuted that policy into a principle by
embedding it in the basic law of the nation.
There are and will be many who for a long
time will oppose the enforcement of the
sumptuary laws that flow from this condition.
These assume various attitudes, but all tend in
the same direction. Against them will be ar
rayed the, group that is united on the determina
tion to banish liquor from the life of the world.
Between these is a larger group than either,
those citizens who but passively participated in
the proceedings that have led up to the present
state. If they have assented to the program of
the prohibitionists, it has been not because they
love the wets less but that they love the 'home
If disaster has overtaken the plana of the
liquor industry in America, only its operations
are to blame. The determination to be rid of
the saloon and the evils that surrounded and
emanated from it is manifest in the acquiesence
by the majority of Americans in constitutional
prohibition. If experience proves the enforced
removal of intoxicating liquor from the daily
life of our people to have been a mistake, it may
be rectified in some way, but that the American
saloon should ever return ia not likely.
The worst of the change has passed, and
most of the readjustments necessary have been
made." Needed provisions for enforcement of
the law in the future' will come forth as ex
perience develops, but the dry era is already
so well launched that only, a little caulking here
and there will be required to stop the leaks in
the lid. The future will determine the rest.
Wool Prices and the Profiteers.
Genuine indignation pulsates through-every
word of the denial with which Secretary Mc
Clure of the Wool Growers' association repels
the direct charge of the clothing men that the
sheep owners are parties to the high cost of
clothing. Dr. McClure gives prices that show
but $7 worth of wool entering into the $75 suit
of clothes. His argument is, clear and under
standable. Another phase of the question is presented
by the colloquy between M. L. Rothschild, a
Chicago manufacturer, and Sidney Hillman,
president of the Amalgamated Clothing Work-"
ers. "Who is to blame for the high prices?" de
manded Rothschild. "We all are," answered
Rothschild's suggestion that purchasers be
advised not to buy will hardly be needed if
manufacturers keep pushing up the price. Pur
chasers will not be able to buy. Wool is higher
than ever, wages are higher, and everything
that enters into the cost of producing and dis
tributing garments is advanced far over pre
war figures. But profits have equally been
boosted to unreasonable heights. Hillman's
reply to Rothschild fairly locates responsibil
ity. Blame rests on all, and the remedy also
The pyramiding process must be stopped un
less the trade seeks disaster. Clothing dealers,
wool growers, tailors, are not alone inculpated
in this. They merely stand here an example of
what others are doing. The process is ruinous,
the end is ruination for somebody. The pro
posed convocation of business leaders to dis
cuss means for ending the inflation may bring
good result, but a little conservatism all along
the line will do more to put a stop to the pro
cession that is now treading near to national
Between the Bankers.
The little war cloud that has blown up be
tween the Nebraska bankers and the Federal
Reserve bank looks ominous, but may no con
tain elements of real danger. It all comes from
a difference of opinion as to how checks should
be collected. In former days the practice was
to exact a collection charge on out-of-town
checks, although this was not universal. A rule
of the Federal Reserve bank forbids this to
member bankers. Nonmembers feel they have
a right to adopt such practice as -they may
deem advisable, within the law. This can not
be gainsaid, nor can the federal bank be de
nied the right to colkct checks after the man
ner it has adopted, although the same does ap
pear peculiar. In a country where the exchange
of credit is almost universally carried on by
checks drawn on banks, and where the validity
of those checks is so completely protected by
law, it appears absurd that so great an institu
tion as the Federal Reserve..bank would from
time to time swoop down on a small non
member bank with an unreasonable accumulation
of these checks and demand immediate cash for
their redemption. This Can hardly fall short
of inconvenience, and frequently must produce
real hardship to banks whose solvency it un
questioned. A better way of doing business
ought to be devised, and one that will yet leave
it optional with bankers whether they join in
the body of the federal institution, which seems
to possess the power for oppression as well as
Hitchcock and Underwood,
It was "even Steven" between Senators
Hirf'hcock and Underwood in the caucus vote
for the leadership vacant since Senator Martin
died. The situation suggests one thought that
neither is the man the democrats really seek, or
the vote would not have resulted in a tie. It is,
of course, complimentary to either that his col
leagues should hold him equal with his op
ponent, but this does not set one or the other
out strongly ahead of the group in the place a
leader might be expected to fill. Plainly, the
choice it finally to depend on expediency, and
this may be determined, as most things relating
to the minority party in congress have been de
termined, entirely as they affect the interests of
the southern group. Underwood hails from a
state that is hopelessly democratic; his career
in the senate is just beginning. Hitchcock
comes from a state that is debatable at all times,
and which presents now a delegation in con
gress solidly republican, save for himself, and
in which-the democrats have scant prospect for
victory this year. If this holds good, and it is
in line with democratic practice, this contest is
over, the end being but postponed.
In Panoply of High Courage
Harry Wolf seems to be something of a go
setter, is the matter of dowa-tpwa real titate.
From the Kansas City Star.
Whatever may be said of Mr. Bryan's lead
ership in hit party it never has wanted the
quality of courage, and that, it must be said, is
one of the very highest qualities with which
leadership can be endowed.
Mr. Bryan exhibited that quality when he
went to the democratic love feast in Washing
ton, and under the shadow of the White House,
and before a gathering unmistakably under ad
ministration influences, took issue with the
president's chief policy and raised a standard of
party rebellion against a democratic senate
minority. That wasn't the action of mere
politician trimming to the wind. It wasn't a
popular or expedient action. It wasn't the re
sult of temper, impulse or hasty judgment Mr.
Bryan did it deliberately, with full knowledge
that his hearers would be hostile, and fore
warned that a message from the president would
be read calling democrats to an opposite course.
He came prepared to do what he did, read his
challenge to the White House from a carefully
written manuscript and fronted the storm.
Whether it was good politics or bad it be
side the question. It was courageous and that
is something that quite transcend! the results
of all political tactics. In the long run courage
is always good politics. It may react upon hlr,
Bryan in the first instance, as similar defiances
of his have before, but in the retrospect this is
to be observed Mr. BTyan began his career
by taking his courage in his hand 25 years ago
and has been a power in his party ever since.
Perhaps when a man has made that record
of consistently courageous opposition to the
most powerful and often triumphant influences
in his own party, it's time to stop inquiring
what his motives can be. Perhaps it's time to
admit his jnotive js to maintain honest and in
dependent thinking for himself and uncontrolled
political action by his party, when he believes
the influences teeking to control it are leading
it to disaster.
What Mr. Bryan did in Washington this
week he did in Baltimore in 1912. He went to
Baltimore instructed for Champ Clark along
with the rest of the Nebraska delegation. And
he voted for Champ Clark steadfastly until the
New York delegation, controlled by Murphy
and Ryan and Belmont, swung to the Mis-
sourian. men Bryan rebelled, tie saw what
he thought was the deliverance of his party and
its then probable nominee into bad hands, and
he took the platform with his fighting face and
told the convention he was through with Clark.
That took courage. Only 13 of the Nebraska
delegation stood by him. More 'than 500 Clark
delegates on the floor more than a majority of
the convention tried to bellow him down. But
when Bryan thinks he is right he is a rock upon
which hostility merely shivers itself. He stood
there and made that convention hear the resolu
tion he presented to the Nebraska delegation,
against further support of Clark, and then ad
mitted in the teeth of all the howling storm that
the delegation had refused to adopt it unan
imously. That magnificent display of courage
and candor was unique, perhaps, in conventions
annals. Its result was not immediately appar
ent, but in a few more ballots it was seen. The
shock of the last Clark charge shivered itself
and receded, and over the scattered wreckage
advanced the' Princeton line.
Mr. Bryan is again convinced that the demo
cratic party is in hands that cannot lead it to
victory. He does not believe his party can go
to the people on the treaty issue and win. Be
lieving so, he says so, and invites the storm.
Right or wrong, it is for democrats to judge
him and then ' events will judge democrats.
But as long as men admire courage and inde
pendence and the willingness to go against
great odds for the sake of conviction, Mr. Bryan
will not lack acclaim nor courage its tribute.
His Mother Does the Fighting
As Grover Cleveland Bergdoll does not deny
that he is guilty of "draft dodging," there is in
commenting on his case none of the impropriety
that commonly marks discussion of offenses
charged and not yet proved. In this instance,
apparently, all the allegations as of fact are un
disputed and the coming trial can be hardly
more than a formal statement of them.
The young man did dodge the draft, and for
a long time he dodged his pursuers, but at last
he has been caught, and the details of the catch
ing are not such as to make him an object of
much sympathy. His mother, now, while hardly
to be called an admirable figure as she stood
threatening with a pistol good policemen doing
their duty, at least by her behavior illlustrated
a virtue," real though misapplied, while the son,
hiding in the box of a window seat while his
mother fought for him, was not heroic.
He is quoted as saying that he would have
served his country if he had been allowed to
serve it as an aviator. That may be true, but
one cannot help wondering how his country
could know what service he wanted to render,
when he remained so persistently far from its
eager questioners. New York Times.

A- Voice for Dempsey.
Omaha, Jan. 14. To the Editor
of The Bee: As a member of the
American Legion I condemn some
and most of the resolutions passed
by posts of the Legion. Why should
any individual post of the American
Legion have the power to spread
broadcast any resolution affecting a
citizen of the United States before
it is sanctioned and approved of by
the head of the organization and the
executive committee? . Only a few
months ago representatives of the
soldiers, the sailors and the marines
from all over -the United States met
at Minneapolis and there elected a
commander, and the different offi
cers and committees under him. If
power Is invested In them they
should exercise it to the extent of
disallowing this rustic talent from at
tempting to dictate to the public
the principles upon which the Amer
ican Legion stand.
Jack Dempley Is an American cit
izen and deserves the right to that
title as much if not more than some
of these agitators who contend that
Dempsey is a Blacker. I contend
that if Dempsey is a slacker there
are in this country of ours thou
sands upon thousands of slackers,
for Dempsey, like these thousands,
offered his services to the United
States government in the capacity
of a shipyard employe, an essential
Industry, demanding brawny men to
accomplish the tasks allotted them.
Moreover, how many men claimed
exemption on account of a depen
dent mother. I don't know whether
or not Dempsey made this claim for
exemption, but if he did he had as
much right to do so as did count
less others, yet not to shrink en
tirely from his duty he went to the
shipyards and offered his services,
as did many of the sons of opulent
Dempsey did not go to the ship
yards because he was Influential or
because he was wealthy, but because
ne possessed the natural physical
qualifications for admittance.
My sincere hope is that the
Douglas county post will not go on
record supporting any free-lance
resolution, proposed by radicals and
agitators, and thrown in the face of
law-abiding citizens as official acts
of the American Legion.

West Point, Neb., Jan. 14. To the
Editor of The Bee: After reading
the article on the front page of The
Bee headed, "Many Jurors Condone
Action of Mob," I wonder if we are
returning to the American Indian
age, and If Washington, Jefferson
and Lincoln lived in vain. That
court house mob certainly put any
act of American Indians to shame,
at least any which have been record
ed In history.
The act of the mob defying au
thority, defiling the flag, destroying
public property, and trampling the
constitution under foot are seeming
ly immune from punishment for
their crimes. If these laws and con
stitutions that have been violated
are so unpopular in Omaha and

secured that can be depended on to
render an unprejudiced verdict, then
In the name of those who fought to

handled by the federal government
where punishment might be ex

It is impossible to name all the
qualities that are valuable in a settle

is no place for the hysterical, over

The variety of the work is unlim

more experienced workers do the

College graduates, or girls who
have attended a school of philan
