A CONGRESS THAT WILL FUNCTION.
The promise made by Senator Harding that
when elected he will see hat congress is re
stored to its proper place in the government of
the United States, exfrcising its constitutional
powers, and functioning as it should , as the
direct representative of the people, is received
by the democrats, with great affectation of de-'
rision. Those who have watched the course of
b me uoay since mi can well understand how a
i democrat may doubt that a congressman, or
'I senator should be anything but a rubber stamp,
i voting "aye" or "nay" as the dictator at the
.White House indicates, but a few old-fashioned
citizens still cling to the idea that the tCon
jjjstitution of the United States is a living thing,
Sand that under it the congress has a place in
the government just as important as that of the

try that the last congress under President Taft

inspired by a narrow partisanship, did many
t things that reacted against, the public interest,
j.and some of which have since had to be undone
Sby the democrats, 'always, however, at the be
j hest of the president. For example, it rejected
the Aldrich-Vrceland bill, which was later made
ijjinto law under the name of Carter Glass and
li the Federal Reserve bank came forth; Taft's
conciliation treaties were rejected by the sen
rate, which later on ratified such of them as Mr.
Bryan was able to renew; the Tariff commission
,4 was abolished, only to be restored at the de
imand of President Wilson, and so on down the
line. Measures for the building up of our navy
.were abandoned, ! the whole construction pro
gram being set aside, leaving the country in such
jexposed condition as cost the taxpayers billions

i earned for him the sobrioui-t of "Th
a -- w w wiivvt
j master," its tone being that of a teacher to his
class. Until we actually entered the war, con
gress slavishly did the bidding of the president,
undertaking nothing without his approval in ad
vance, and opposing him only when, in the fall
.of 1915, he decided to enter upon a prepared
ness program, which . he promptly abandoned
when certain leaders in . the house and senate
voiced their disapproval of his plans. After the
declaration of war on Germany the most im
portant measures offered by the administration
-for the winning of 'the war received their ef
fective support from the republicans and were
.most vigorously opposed by democrats.
;f In 1918 the people took entire control of con
gress away from the president. He could no
longer dictate how the members should vote
save those of his own party, the majority of
Whom still follow him blindly, ..but he could
exercise his veto power and has, the disapproval
of a budget bill, designed to effect the longed for
economy in government affairs, falling before
his disapproval. He proposes to nullify the
Jones shipping act, intended to restore to full
usefulness the American merchant marine, by
refusing to obey provisions of a law signed by
himself. The sugar calamity overtook the na
tion because the president would not enforce
the Lever law, nor the McNary law, passed ex
pressly to save the country from the profiteers.
, The record shows that under Woodrow Wil
son congress has functioned only when the pres
ident has permitted, and just to the extent he
would allow. Senator Harding holds out the
promise that our country is going back to the
constitution, and! that the co-ordination between
the legislative and executive powers will be
restored. We believe the people earnestlyde

Moving Omaha Nearer the Coast
That the New York jChamber of Commerce
has protested against the St. Lawrence ship
, canal project does not mean that this would
be a bad thing for the grain growing regions
of the United States, but merely that this would
cut the toll exacted by the handling interests
at the Atlantic ports and the railroads that run
between. The suggestion that the Omaha-Chamber
of Commerce actively work for the adoption
of this international plan to bring ocean freight
ers within 500 miles of Omaha is worth con
sideration. The railroads are now incapable of moving
the crops as fast as is necessary for the needs
of the producers. With the Atlantic ocean
brought, as it were, 1,000 miles west, and Chi
cago turned into a seaport, each freight car
could make three trips to the -loading point,
while now iris, making one. Immigrant ships
could bring their human cargoes into the heart
of tha nation, where their labor is needed for
agriculture, instead of leaving them to congest
the Atlantic coast
Simply because Chicago and some of the
other cities on the Great Lakes would be bene
fited, and ships now putting in at New York
and Canadian ports would pass by and come
closer to the world's market basket furnishes
no adequate reason for objecting to the plan
Freight rates would be lowered by water trans
, portation and the whole central' part of the
country would be the gainer. The water power

Development of water transportation is

Waging War on Lenroot.
Out of the maze of local complications which
obscure the political situation in Wisconsin one
fact stands out baldly. The forces that are op
posed to republican policies are bending every
effort to secure the defeat of Irvine L. Lenroot.
who was elected two years ago to succeed to the
vacancy caused by the death of Senator Husting.
At that time the president of the United States
thrust his personality into the campaign, en
deavoring to assist the democrat to election, a
step that was promptly and properly rebuked
by the voters of Wisconsin.
At the primaries this year Lenroot triumphed
over the opposition headed by LaFolIette, who
has since then brought out a ticket of his own,
heading it with the candidate rejected by the
voter; in favor of Lenroot. This act of political
treachery is ample notice to the republicans as
to what they may expect from LaFolIette, whose
term expires in 1923, and who undoubtedly is
looking ahead to a campaign on his own' ac
count in 1922. If he can encompass the defeat
of the party's nominee, at this time, securing the
choice of his own man, he will be strategically
much firmer situated when his own turn for re
However, there is more than the personal
equation involved in the Wisconsin situation.
Lenroot showed himself possessed of uncommon
ability when serving in the house, and would un
doubtedly have been the. leader of the republican
majority on the floor, had he remained there.
In the senate this ability brought him rapidly
to the fore, and he was an active and able par
ticipant in all the work of that body during the
closing months of the Sixty-fifth congress and
the sessions so far held of the Sixty-sixth. His
renomination was hailed with delight by the sup
porters of good government, without regard to
party, and these confidently look to Wisconsin
to vindicate its judgment by sending him back to
the senate, where he has been genuinely useful
to the American public. He should not be listed
among the victims of Robert Marion LaFol
lctte'S ambition to rule or ruin. .
In the Next Legislature.
, While the interest of Ncbraskans ill the nut-
come of the national election is paramount, pub
lication by the secretary of state of a Hat of
filings by candidates for the legislature reminds
us that the voters of the state have another im
perative duty. They must exercise great care
in selection of the men who are to make the
laws. Some unusually vital legislation will be
presented at the coming session, especially in
the matter of enacting statutes necessary to
give full effect to the constitutional amendments
recently adopted. Many of those amendments
tl9V tlM CMlkl.Hn. .f ......A-. 1 I .
... ovmumutc vi statutes as iney stand,
but all require the needed enactment to give
them vitality. This job alone will take up con
siderable time of. the assembly, and demands
that voters scrutinize closely the men who are
offered as candidates for the legislature. Doug
las county republicans have occasion to con
gratulate themselves on the choice made at the
primary, for they have presented a ticket that is
composed 'of men who will compare .favorably
with any group ever offered by the county. It
has legislators of experience, who are familiar
not only with the routine of the body, but who
are likewise acquainted with the needs of the
state, the county and the city, and who can be
depended upon to do faithfully and well the
work entrusted to them. Voters should keep
this in mind, for Douglas county, is intensely in
terested in the matters that will be settled at
Lincoln during the coming winter.
Many Years to Recover.
A famous Danish statistician estimates the
cost of the world war tot the human race at
35,000,000 lives. This number equals the present
population of France. Although the number
of American lives lost was 116,492, the nations
who entered the conflict at the beginning suf
fered much more heavily. The total number
killed in action or dead from wounds is set
at 10,000,000 men by the Danish estimate. The
increase in mortality among the civilian popu
lation during the war is set at 5,000,000. The
largest item is ascribed to the loss of 20,000,000
human beings due to -abnormal decrease in the
Famine ,and epidemics made the deaths in
Austria, Hungary, .Poland, the Balkans and
Russia larger than those of France, which suf
fered most severely of the allies. Its popula
tion is said to have decreased 7 per cent. French
men between the ages of 20 and 44 decreased
at the Tate of 20 per cent 'This leaves the ratio
of women to men in that nation 126 to 100.
One of the world's leading eugenic author
ities declares that if will take France 65 years
to recuperate its manpower. Germany, it is
said, will require 15 years, England 10 years and
Italy 30 years to get back to normal population.
Figures such as these impress the fact that
the world will never be the same again. The
losses and" destruction of war fell alike on the
just and unjust. Readjustment and. restoration
are.not to be expected in a day, and the memory
of this conflict will for many years exert a
restraining influence on international misunderstandings.

CONTAGION AND CHILDREN.
Tha, children who must be pro
tected against all contagion are the
babies under 2. If a child can be
carried beyond ,2 without contracting
contagion, the child is not very likely
to die from any form of communica
ble disease. ,
Contagion is most prevalent among
children under ichool age. It prob
ably Is more prevalent among babies
under 2 than it is among school
children. These are the conclusions
of a report made by Dr. George T.
Palmer of the Detroit, health depart
What Dr. Palmer did was to tabu
late the ages of all persons reported
to the Detroit health department as
having had any form of contagion
over a period of years. '
His method differed somewhat
from the method employed by Hill In
Minnesota, Henderson In London,
Ontario, and the superintendent of
the rural school of La Crosse county,
Wisconsin, What these did "was to
use the Schools to get a complete
contagion history of each school
child, what formi of contagion he
or she had suffered from, and at
Dr. Palmer's study showed one
fifth of all the whooping .cough was
In children under 2, or about 10 per
cent a year. Children below S had
61 per cent of all the whooping
cough. This fugtired about 12 per
cent a year for each year between
2 and S. Those children who have
had whooping cough before they go
to school need not worry the teacher
when whooping cough is In the
Nevertheless, in Detroit one-third
of all the whoojplng cough was In
children 5 to 10. Since St per cent
of the whooping cough was In chil
dren under 10. there Is no reason
why parents, teafihers and employ
ers of persons over 10 should worry
about whooping cough. Of the chil
dren 1 who contract whooping cough
If the disease is avoided until the
child reaches 3 the chance of death
is one in 60. At 10 it is one In 300.
Fourteen per cent of the measles
is In babies under 2; 61 per cent in
children under 5, and 89 per cent in
children under 10. Of the babies
under 1 wlthameasles 27 per cent,
more than one-fourth, die. Measles
In babies between 1 and 2 was one
half as fatal, 15 per cent. In chil
dren 4 years old enly one In 100' die.
As to the entire list of contagious
diseases the teaching was about the
same. A fair proportion of the cases
occur in babyhood; many children
are already immune when they start
to school. When the child reaches
10 he has had about all the conta
gion he is due tq have. And, finally,
contagion should be staved off as
long as possible because the older
the child the better his chance of
