MI8TAKEN LABOR POLICY. ' ,
Opposition to the pending railroad law be
cause it guarantees a return to capital invested
is "shortsighted. The policy may not be -the
wisest, but the expedient has been adopted as
a measure of justice to the. owners ot; the toads.
In effect, it makes sure thai each dollar of rail
road capital shall have its wages, not at the
current rate of pay, but at a figure that does
not include either -extravagance or starvation,
When private 'concerns are borrowing at 8 per
cent and selling stockn a basts of 6 to 7 per
cent, if doesjiot seem unreasonable that cap!
Al 1 J . . .
ui crupiuyca m me most important ot our
great national industries should be assured
return of Sri per cent.
The first big problem for the owners of the
roads is to secure ; money 'whereby topay for
imiJroyjements, extensions and bettermejits; to
restore thejvornout rails and box cars, to renew
engines and other equipment, and to carry on
the business. Ihis money will not be forth
coming unless it is made plain to the investor
that sonie return is certain.. 'A dollar can not
be made to work, any more fhan a" man, in fact
not so easily. And if capital stnkes against the
railroads, trt result will be as serious as if the
brotherhoods should quit.-
To assert that ' this act makes the public
and labor subservient to capital" is begging the
question, the cheapest sort of pettifoggery. All
r.ne capital empioyea in me transportation in
dustry is owned. by the public, of which the
great railroad brotherhoods and all other labor,
organized and unorganized, are part Immense
sums of money so engaged are obtained
through various fiduciary institutions,- savings
banks, insurance companies and the like, in
which the savings of t,he workers are placed to
earn -the wages of money,, which is the interest.
Money must work, hd it will go where condi
tions are best for its employment The pend
ing railroaH measure fOnly seeks to provide for
atime tljat capital employed in the industry
ha fair wages, the same as the men.
Labor's leaders, having espoused the cause
of government ownership, , may be expected to
press their case with, all zeal, but they are
making a mistake when they resort -to such
superficial methods as are employed in the
v Robert Edwin Peary.
Another of America's truly great men has
gone on, leaving behind him a record of ac
complishment that ..will endure. The simple
statement that Robert Edwin Peary, who has
just died, was first to reach the North pole, to
stand ''at the very top of the world,, does riot
suggest the tremendous effort and sacrifice involved.-
Yet it 'does contain Hhe truth that will
keep the name of Peary alive while men inhabit
the globe and study its composition.
,.. The controversy springing front the false
claps -made by Dr. Frederick A. Cook threw
a shadow over Peary'si-achievement, but he
emerged from that ' well and thoroughly vin
dicated,. although the enthusiasm' that, would
have attended his announcement ordinarily was
diminished by the bitterness of the . contest.
Those who championed Peary have been up-,
lifted and those who accepted the Cook claims
have been confounded by later events. Ste-
Mansson, the most persistent and painstaking
of 'all Arctic explore'-s, although not seeking
the pole itself, has- corroborated many details
and corrected some of the Peary observations.
'while quietly announcing certain 'facts that
prove Cook to have made many untrue state
ments, some of them mistakes he could not
have made had he, been anywhere afar the loca
tions he undertook to describe.
Peary's achievement, spectacular as it was,
did not contain the elements of tragedy that
distinguished the rival dash of Ahmundsen and
Scott tor the South pole. In tact, nothing in
all the history of such ventures quite compared
.yHth the story of Robert Falcon Scott and his
companions. In the quiet life of his closing
-years Admiral Peary had all the satisfaction
ot,knowing that' his work 4was recognized, his
attributions to science appraised as well as
they. might be under existing conditions, ancj
with full honor and credit he went along to
join a glorious company 6f pioneers and ad
venturers in "that undiscovered country from
whose bourne no traveler returns."
Hitchcock and Nebraska. '-
The newspapers of the state, under the duty
of publishing the facts as they find them, report
much whetting ot knives among Nebraska
democrats, preparatory to a finish fight; over
the instructions to be givenNthe Nebraska dele
gation to the democratic national convention.
I , While some republicans may consider? any
ruction in the democratic camp grist tor their
mill, The Bee prefers to view the incipient dis
turbance . with a broader spirit. Ihe tteeyis a
republican newspaper, of independent tenden
cies. vIt believes that the national interests at
this time are best to be servecyby the election
of a republican president But it is also a Ne
braska newspaper, with faith in Nebraska and
with pride in Nebraska s sons. It feels that
thatpride is legitimate and something which
might well imbue all Nebraskans, even Ne
braska democrats. Consequently, if The Bee
were "disposed to imagine itself a democrat for
a moment, it could hot join in any campaign to
keep from Senator Gilbert M. Hitchcock the
vote of Nebraska's delegates in the 'democratic
convention. ' V
Senato Hitchcock was born in Nebraska,
grew to manhood in this state and however
politically misguided he may have been has
come to a position of power and prominenc
in his party through his ability and personal
cnarm.1 The attainment of such a position is
of interests Nebraskans as Nebraskans, is
something which can be said of no other
democrat new, a candidate for the party's
presidential nomination and it should count for
something with Nebraska 'democrats.

-THE BEE: OMAHA, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1920:
Labor Shoutd Heed the
From the Baltimore American.
Whatever else may happen, labor seems de
termined that it shall lose none 'of the ground
itgained through the war emergency of the
nation. If this position shall be successfully
maintained, prices will remain crystallized at the
present level. That is, until something more
fundamental than the edicts of labor unions
shall become operative. Labor - is dependent
upon one thing employment Wheij. labor
ceases to be an asset to society it becomes a
urdev. Capital, also, comes to be unemployed
aiip unproductive, out it has resources ana iaoor
does not; it can afford to weather an era of de
pression and take its losses; labor must either
be employed or suffer poignantly. In the pres
ence of an industrial crisis all the finely spun
theories and hard-built-un nreroeatives of labor
organizations fell to the ground. A school of
desperation holding to a doctrine of despair has
sprung-up in these latter days that goes under
the general name of bolshevism. This 'might be
turned to. but. unfortunately, the workers of
America have, come to be capitalists; to Own
their own homes; to own bonds and bank ac
counts and to have provided investments ot one
tfr another kind. .There are enough so fixed to
make impossible he adoption of bolshevism in
any case, for that is set for the direct destruc
tion of wages as commonly understood in this
country. I he threat of bolshevism could Hold
no terrors for the United States. Here it could
stand only for group-outlawry, to be treated ex
actly iixe any other kind ot outlawry. - :
me moor organizations, therefore, would do
well to do some clear thinkinc? before thev seek
to control thepolitical parties by their interest
vote. Such a position for interest only is thor
oughly un-Amencan. It does not tit into the
American system of party politics. It could
be justified only in the exrjectation of the cttz-
lioil of a labor nartv cuVh aa anncar tn hr unon

tne onnic ot taking over the administration ot
England out ot the hands of the coalition gov
ernment Had the United States established
coalition government at the time of going into
the" war, a course that had strong espousal, the
foundation would have been laid, for a labor
party as in England. As matters "stand, there
is no foundation- for anything of the sort The
American skilled worker has no taste for the
segregation of himself and fellows into a labor
camp. He looks upon his daily toil as a means
of subsistence and his connection with a union
as protective of the same. But he is far from
willing to have the men who eovern his union
control his entire destinies. Nor is he to be led
into the delusion that his organization is the
thing of supreme interest to the country. . He
is, first of all an American and not a union man
with internationalism as the dark shadow Hail
ing at the skirts of the unions in politics. It is
all right for -the Federation ot Labsr to ques
tion all candidates for office, to ascertain their
labor views. J.t would not be difficult for any
one of them to answer favorably in general
terms. As for .specific commitments, the very
nature and reach of labor legislation and legis
lation bearing upon labor makes impossible for
such commitment to be made in terms that
would be it all binding. Then" it would develop I
upon a group ot labor autocrats to administer
punishment upon candidates. Here is where the
ndeoendent American citizen would break loose
from the assumptions of a few-interfering in the
field of his privilege.
Coneresman Frederick H. Gi left, sneaker of
the house, says that with which 90 per cept of
the men in organized, labor will agree, namely,
that when labor unions ko so far as to threaten
for their owfn advancement, to stoo the wheels
of the railroads and to close the output of the
mines, without which the whole industrial or
ganization would collapse, they, in turn, are ex
ercising power that no govejment would per
mit. It becomes a Question whether a combina
tion df the employed is not more threatening to
trie business lite ot the country than a,com-
Dination or tne unemployed.. : ,
What does he mean by more -threatening?
He leaves no doubt when he gives warning that
the country is facing a financial panic similar to
that of 1893, unless all shall.work together. The
basis for this condition lies in the matter that
is wholly out of the control of labor to effect
by its self-interest program, namely, the float
ing debt of $4,000,000,000 in treasury certificates.
Unless co-operation prevents the crisis and
panic shall come, where will be the house of
cards of the labor organizations? These have
power only in time of prosperity. They are su
pine in time of adversity. Let them isolate
themselves from the sympathies of their fellows
in the great body of consumers, and precipitate '
inereoy a panic, ana see now mucn sympatny
they will receive when they are in the midst of
the debris of business for which they will be
held responsible. It is fine talk, this nonsense
about a labor" vote, cast for labor,, but, unfor
tunately for the short-sighted labor leaders, it
does not accord either with the American basic
political conditions or conditions for economic
welfare.. ' - . , -
Significance of Life
We do not know what the present year
shall bring to us, whether it shall be filled with
sweet fulfillments and those things that color
life in bright, cheerful tones, or whether it
shall bring jsnly (disappointments and gray
clouds. Fo'many of us the next 12 months
will be a mixture of joy and grief, brightness
arid sadness, of disappointments and realiza
tions. But it takes just such combinations to
make us understand something of the signifi
cance of life. We learn to aonreciate our bless-
f jngs when they take their night more than at
any other time, and the knowledge that the
brilliancy of life's sun must be tempered by
shadows helps us to make the most oi the sunny
days, we cannot expect to experience only
the brightness of life 'during the year that is
just beginning to exist; the gray days must
come and the clouds gather, sometimes with
little warning, but such conditions arenot typi
cal of any one life. There is always a little
sunshine just behind the clouds to be hared
by all alike, notwithstanding the fact that for
while at least it oes not seem to be" evenl;
divined, me longer we live the harder our
problems are likely to become, and the anxieties
of one year run over into'other years and often

Council Bluffs, la., Feb. 18. To
the Editor of The Bee: It is true tha,t
the-iNebraska people have an excel
lent man in the person of Gen. John
J.. Pershing, and there can be no
question aa to he and General Wood
belng'men of a high type, but they
both are men of military training
and choice, one through the channel
of our national academy, West Point,
the other-through volunteer service
and through which he, too, chose
the. profession, but also la a splendid
man. But the question arises do we
now need this class of men to fill our
national executive chair? These men
are thinkers and men of action, but
the thinking and action has been
away from the thinking and action
along civil and especially economic
lines, and right here is where objec
tion is found, and raised in regard to
placing this profession, military,
which in its place is absolutely neces
sary as these two men have proven.
Therefore, we wish to congratulate
the Citizens of Nebraska in their
loyalty and respect to General Per
shingas a "native son," but there is
room in all this to speak a word re
garding Gov. Frank O. Lowden, an
astute business man as well as a
splendid war governor, and -withal a
man of large affairs. The official
records of Illinois bears evidence of
Mr. Lowden's splendid abilities, po
litically, economically, as well as
Jgocially, being a man who loves, as
Lincoln did. to mingle with the
wholfe DeoDle. and a man whom we
believe bears that other great virtue,
namely, "With malice toward none
and charity for all." Let me suggest
that when Nebraska has exhausted
her convention's activities looking to
General Pershing;s candidacy ana
finds he cannot be the man, then
Nebraska can do no better than to
throw Its Unanimous support y vjov
ernor Lowden. '
