Politics and Money
Frank A. Vanderlip's assertion that there is
politics in the Federal Reserve Board is true
from the fact that the Secretary of the Treasury
' and the Comptroller of the Currency are both
oolitical appointees. If politics has anything to
'- do with the policies of the board, as some of the
. ratings would indicate, the question may well
be one of the issues of the presidential cam
paign. - The nation does not want politics
- mixed up with its money. . . ,
v There is no denying that there is serious in
flation of the currency. Aside from deductions
that may be made from the existing price level,
treasury reports showing the dwindling gold-reserve
and the increased amount of paper money
is circulation prove that inflation has been car
, ried farther than necessary Even the United

BETTER DEAL FOR BUSINESS.
The dismissal of the government's suit
against tha so-called steel trust may be ac
cepted as indicative of a new and better deal
for business under government control. With
only the bare outline of the opinion of Justice
Kenna at hand, It is not possible to intelligently
discuss the court's line of reasoning in detail
Enough is suggested, though, in the statement
that no act in restraint of trade has been com
mitted since 1911, to support the statement
that the business as now managed is well within
the limits of the Sherman and Clayton laws.
This decision may be accepted as marking
the passage of attack on business merely be
cause it is "big." Industry long ago developed
to the point where enormous combinations were
needed to successfully and efficiently provide
for the needs of the world. The United States
Steel company, first organized twenty-two years
ago, has been one of the most illustrious exam
ples of this. It now requires the employment
of two billions of capital, a sum in excess of
any other corporation in the world. If this
amount of money be legitimately and service
ably employed, it no more constitutes a menace
than if it were broken uo into a thousand
separate units, each acting independently of the
other, but all combined incapable of doing what
the one great aggregation accomplishes.
This decision is capable of being harmon
ized with the outcome of the packers' case, in
which a divergent principle is involved. Its
plain meaning is that business will no longer be
subject to attack because of its magnitude.
Monopoly is not contemplated, nor will unfair
methods of competition be tolerated, for the
law still is potent to reach these, but capital
will be permitted to work in large groups, ac
complishing big things through its more ef
ficient employment. Big and little business will
stan4 before the law, just as do individual citi
zens, with justice denied to none, and equal
opportunity open to all. This is the American
idea of what constitutes a square deal.
Get Rid of the Turk
Andrew J. Seaman's Life.
Andrew J. Seaman, aged Omaha recluse and
eccentric, was what the world calls a "miser,"
that is, an abnormally thrifty person. People
laughed at him; thoughtless boys' hooted the
unoffending old man on the streets.
But Mr. Seaman was not a bad citizen. He
harmed no one but himself. Many a gilded fool
prides himself on being a "good spender,"
though he spends only selfishly . for his own
pleasure. Mr.- Seaman spent almost nothing
on himself. He was unselfish. It is recorded,
however, that he gave $100 to the Y. M. C. A.
building fund. He sen't gifts of cash to his
sister. What else he gave we don't know. He
never talked about his affairs.
Even when the friendless man knew that
death was near and that he must leave his
money, his last word was'that no needless ex
pense should be incurred for a casket the
money could b,e used better by the. living. Mr.
Seaman's manner of life was repugnant to nor
mal humanity. And rightly so. But his
miserliness was a disease which, perhaps, con
cealed a great nature. And we can not help
feeling a real sympathy for this friendless old
man who lived his lonely life irt our midst for
so many years, and who died a lonely and
friendless death, out of touch with and misun
derstood by his fellow men. If his life con
tains any lesson, it is that social contact with
the world is worth more than a life of solitary
"Pitiless Publicity" Again.
The administration at Washington has de
cided not to give out the text of the peace note
from the bolsheviki, because, according to the
State department, it is "intended for propa
ganda." A peculiar reason, and not based on
good reasoning. The suppressed notes will
be far more effective propaganda than if thev
were published. If they contain anything the
radicals want to get before the people, Lenine
and Trotzky will see that the text is given out.
Meanwhile, every soapbox in the land will ring
with the fact that the government is suppress
ing a communication from the people of Rus
sia, keeping the people in ignorance of the
terms on which the reds seek peace. If the
radical movement is to be successfully comba
ted in America, it will not be by adopting the
tactics of the ostrich. The wider circulation
that can be given .the. absurdities of the Rus
sian creed, the more certain will America's an
swer be in the negative. Facts are the one
thing before which the red flag cowers. -
Wisdom Crieth Without
One of Andrew Carnegie's "forty million
aires," James Oayley of New Xork, is dead.l
When he first went to work his salary was $500
a year, a wage that would be indiarnantlv re
fused by an errand boy or domestic servant in
this year of our Lord. Wealth came to him
not by oppressing the poor, but because he in
vented a process that increased the product
of blast furnaces twenty per cent. . While it
earned millions for him, it earned hundreds of
millions for society.
In other words, Mr. Gayley was of service
to his feJlowmen. His heart was in his work.
He mixed brains with his labor. The road he
traveled is free and open to every boy and man
in America, if he will but "'receive the instruc
tion of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and
equity," which the wisest of men said "fools
i The New Partisanship.
The nation is startled by Mr. Wilson's ap
pointment of Bainbridge Colby assecretary of
state at this juncture of our crucial internal
tional affairs; the democratic party is shocked,
humiliated, that among ajl the tried and true
democrats of the country there was none to
fill this first office in the gift of the presi
dentNew York Sun.
Mr. Wilson's intense partisanship has al
ways been Wilsonian rather than democratic
A democrat who does not place Wilson above
his party may go and should go into outer dark
ness, there to gnash his teeth. ,To question the
president's wisdom is heresy the unpardonable
sin; while blessed are bull moose and repub
lican who forsake not the White House policies
and cease not to burn incense under the nostrils
of Woodrow Wilson.
"Do something,1 has always been a military
rulsjin emergencies. A Cincinnati schoolma'am,
wiser than her generation, has adopted this for

laid down for her pupils. , That teacher will get
to a bigger job.

From the New York Times.
The outburst of resentment in Britain over
the decision to leave the Turks in Constinople
is a fine thing and in accord with a fine tradi
tion. Like most other nations, the British have
generally pusured a foreign policy dictated by
their idea of interests; but aow and then interest
has been pushed aside to make way for enforce
ment of some fundamental demand for interna
tional decency. In this case Mr. Lloyd George
seems to have been somewhat surprised to find
that his countrymen had a conscience; ana,
whole no doubt envying his colleague, Mr.
Millehand, who has heard no objection to a plan
which may protect French investors, he feels it
necessary to make some excuse.
Now we hear that Mr. Lloyd George consid
ers himself bound by his pledge made in the
101 S in ihf labor delegates.
This famous address set forth a schedule of
peace terms almost exactly parallel to that an
nounced by Mr. Wilson three days later in the
14 points. But tha Turkish question is precisely
the one on which Mr. Lloyd George and Mr.
Wilson differed. Both wanted the strait inter
nationalized, but while Mr. Wilson contented
himself with saying that "the Turkish portions
of the present Ottoman empire should be as
sured a secure sovereignty," Mr.. Lloyd George
said: "We do not challenge the maintenance
of the Turkish empire in the homelands of the
Turkish race, with its capital at Constantinople."
Why the difference in two progrrams which
were evidently intended to be identical? The
most plausible interpretation is that Mr. Lloyd
George really thought that Constantinople was
part of the homelands of the Turkish race; that
he had never heard of the Byzantine empire or
of Mohammed II. A question of the highest
moral and material importance to the whole
world should not be determined by the distaste
of a schoolboy for application to text books
of history 40 years ago. Besides, Mr. Lloyd
George surely does not pretend that he should
keen all the nromises he ever made to any
body, even assuming that British labor cares
about the Turk one way or .mother. He would
have done better to admit frankly that the
French had talked him into it.
Rut Hamac-p ha been done. His colleaeue.
Mr. Montagu of the Indian office, has lost no
time. Leaving Mr. Lloyd George to act as rear
guard against the protests of the British con
science, he has hastily had it announced
throughout all Indian that the British govern
ment has yielded to the wishes of Indian Mos
lems. Mr. Montagu doubtless knows whether
this is the best way to maintain respect for the
imperial authority, as he is doubtless competent
to determine when it is wise to announce as
irrevocable the decisions, of a supreme council
which every day reverses yesterday's settle
ments. Perhaps, indeed, he wanted to forestall
a reversal. ,
The good news has been told in Constantino
ple, too, where the Turks are naturally jubilant.
The nationalist party, which appears to control
whatever force there is in the Turkish state,
now demands the restoration of all territory
except Syria and Mesopotamia, and wjll thear
of no foreign interference in Turkish internal
affairs. The Turks undoubtedly think that the
council has made a solemn promise, and that
body will have to choose between incurring the
deserved reproach of bad faith and affronting
the moral sense of its own peoples. Moreover,
it is exceedingly probable that an attempt to
put the Turke out after this promise will result
in violence; and while the allied fleet in the Bos
porus ought to be able to prevent the worst re
sults, it is to be feared that much blood will be
shed befbre the Turks are 'put out.
This, however, does not mean that they can
not and should not be put out. America has
been unwilling to help the Armenians; we give
them much sympathy, a little money, but no
more. The senate would apparently have us
wash our hands of Europe, but it is under
stood that President Wilson expects to be con
sulted in the Turkish settlement. This is not a
question of party. All Americans who care
anything for decency in international relations
as well as all who realize the danger of leaving
the Turk in Europe should unite in a protest
against this decision. They should insist that
our government have its say in the Turkish set
tlement, and that its influence should be used
to the full to put the Turks out and keep them
out. The protests of Mr. Morgenthau and Mr.
Gerard should be echoed by all who see in the
protest of the British public a sign of the re
awakening of an international conscience which
had gone to sleep during the debate on the
The German War Criminals
The German War Criminals.
In two respects the demand for the sur
render of the German war criminals differed
distinctly from that for the extraditioh of Wil
helm von Hohenzollern. It was based on an
accusation of specific crimes, and the entente's
right to enforce its execution results from the
ratification of the Treaty of Versaliles by the
German National Assembly. The legal
grounds on which Queen Wilhelmina based her
negative reply to the note of the Allied Powers
offered, consequently, no support to the Ger
man governmentt for its refusal.
Nevertheless, the Allied Powers have acted
with wisdom and dignity in acceding to that
refusal. The concession is coupled with the re
quirement that the German government shall
'carry out in good faith its declaration of readi
ness to bring to trial the men accused of high
crimes against the laws of war and the estab
lished usages of civilized nations. The diffi
culty is by no means at an end; it will be no
easy matter to procure a genuine trial of high
German officers by their own countrymen, and
a judgment in accordance with the evidence.
The Allied Powers distinctly reserve the right
to enforce th teerms of the treaty in the event
of the trials proving to be a mere pretence.
But it was evident that insistence on the sur
render of hundreds of leading German military
men, to be tried by enemy judges in an enemy
country, would have meant a convulsion whose
consequences threatened to be ruinous to the
whole world. The solution arrived at repre
sents the nearest approach, which was possible
to the reconcilement of justice with necessity.
The Review. , ,
Agnew on th Treaty.
Omaha, Feb. 28. To the Editor ot
The Bee: I have noticed a number
of times that you took occasion to
at least half way roast senators Bo
rah. Johnson and Lodge for their
fight against the so-called league of
nations, as if the people of this coun
try are dead anxioua for the adop
tion of the league of nations.
Tou know that there has not been
an election held in the United States
since the League of Nations has been
under discussion In the United States
senate, and where that question was
at issue, but that the opponents of
the league of nations have not either
won signal triumphs, or have gained
I so strongly on the democratlo can
didates, that it was about the same
as a victory for the opponents to the
league 01 nations. j.i is my personal
opinion that the people of the United
States are very indifferent about the
adoption of the league and in fact
millions of our citizens are strongly
opposed to it wholly and entirely.
Future historians will place Sen
ators Borah, Johnson and Lodge
along by the side of Webster, Clay,
Lincoln, Seward, Blaine, Cleveland
and Roosevelt in their fight for
Americanism of the good old-fashioned
kind. I think the senators
you have taken to task are to be
praised for their stand for stalwart
Americanism and if the league of
nations is an issue In the coming
presidential election, aa I for one
hope, will be the case, you will find
that the people of the United States
stand aa a tremendous majority
back of the men who have fought
for America first We aa a nation
have grown great and prospered
without mixing up In the affairs of
other nations and we have done it
for the last 144 years and there is
jio good reason for us to tie up with
he kingdoms and empires of the
earth in order to keep- their subjects
unaer control witn our aid.
Let other nations take care of
their own affairs and let us do the
same, for we have big problems of
our own to solve and we have all we
can do to attend to our own national
Let the people of other nations
go to work and not depend on the
United States so much for help' and
they will be better off and so will we.
I think the senators who are wholly
opposed to the league of nations are
wholly and inexorably right in their
stand and are to be commended.

For Boys to Make
Building a Box Kite.
By O. M. HYDE.
Although almost any boy feels ca

the courage to attempt a Sox kite
therefore, the one is envied when
March winds blow. But with a sim
ple design, the box kite is not be

is a simple design:
The simplicity of the design de
pends upon placing the sticks edge
wise so as to take advantage of their
greater crosswise strength and to re
duce the number required. With
proper joints, as shown, the kite will
be as stiff as if it contained many
more sticks and braces.
The sticks for the kite should all
be J-inch wide by 3-16-inch thick
and of straight-grained white pine.
The four main frame sticks t(E, F.
H, I) should each be about 34
inches long. For cross braces you
