In its essence, this revelation is highly com

NEBRASKA'S "BLUE SKY" LAW. "
Suggestions for amendment -to the law
governing the sale of shares of corporation stock
in Nebraska will revive many of the arguments
indulged when the "blue sky" statute first came
up for consideration. That state oversight of
stock issues is a proper exercise of governmental
authority is admitted. Yet this should not be
interpreted to mean that the state is to become
guarantor for the integrity of all schemes put
forward or for 'the character of the socilitors
who go about selling the shares. The law should
have "teeth," and the stock" salesman who is
overtaken in peddling doubtful or worthless is
sues should be made to feel them.
The last three years have been a period of
reckless financing. It has not been confined to
the wildcat ventures, but some really legitimate
undertakings have been floated on an ocean of
Vwater," and serious trouble has been en
countered by some already, and may yet be by
others. This is not the fault of the law, nor is
it apparent that a law can be devised that will
reach the spot Courts can be, and have been,
appealed to in the process of making some of
the promoters disgorge their rakeoff, but that
is a slow and uncertain process. This finally
throws the whole matter back to individual judg
ment of the investor, who will very likely be
more wary and make closer inquiry if he is
warned in advance that the state will not step in
to help him recover in case he repent of his bar
gain. . -
A business enterprise of any sort must rest
on its character, and' this at the outset depends
on that of the men who are promoting it. In the
case of a stock issue flotation, prospective sub
scribers can sot be expected to have sufficient
acquaintance with its nature and the character of
the men who are behind it to form a sound judg
ment as to its value as an investment. But every
farmer, merchant, business man, or other citizen
with money has access to certain sources of re
liable information. Let the prospective investor
consult his banker, his attorney, or other busi
ness advisor, in whom he has confidence and
who is worthy to be trusted, and. beguided by
his opinioti with regard to the merits of the
enterprise seeking his money. It is foolish to
trust the glib-tongued stranger, who comes along
with his well prepared argument, his special
training, and his undoubted powers of persuasion.
Here him out, but et the advice of somebody,
you know before taking hold. A few promoters
do sell dependable stocks, but the bulk of the
worth while investment paper is - marketed
through agencies of established probity.
1 More often promotion schemes are paraded
as "sure things," thus attracting a larger range
of purchasers. The natural relationship of high
profits to high risks is not taken into account as
often as it should be, and ."blue sky" laws are
utterly powerless to instill discretion into pur
chasers. A dispatch from Lincoln lately re
ported that the legislature may conclude that
the present "blue sky" law does as much damage
as good through the fact that many assume that
any company able to pass the scrutiny of the
state is in some way guaranteed to be profitable.
Instead of investigating for himself, the small
investor will accept the license to sell stock as
evidence of a successful future for any concern
having it. v
'If one would pause but for a moment and
realize that no one can be certain of the fate of
any business venture, less harm' would fall, and
the benefit of blue sky laws would be indubit
able. Certain evils such as excessive promotion
charges, payment of dividends out of capital
when there are no earnings, and like pieces of
dishonesty can be prevented, but no law can
make a privately conducted business a success or
guarantee the acumen of its managers.
Putting Puccini in Blackface.
A fondness for popular music, no longer can
be regarded as an indication of lack of taste,
and critics who have lamented the lack of ap
preciation for classical music and have scorned
the tunes of the ballroom and the theater are at
a loss. For many of those lively airs are laid
under suspicion of having been filched from
grand opera and the works of famous composers.
A suit brought in New York City charges
that Al Jolson, blackface jazz comedian who has
been tickling the ears of the public with his
song, "Avalon," has in reality merely been popu
larizing the theme that recurs throughout the
tenor aria of the last act of the opera, "La To8'
ca." In asking an injunction, the holder of the
copyright on the grand opera" contends that the
chorus of the dance tune has been taken note for
note from Puccini's song, "When the Stars Are
Shining." A comparison of the scores shows at
least a remarkable coincidence.
The cruel disillusionment of those who
scorned grand opera and prided themselves on
their love of jazz and ragtime and of those who
were equally vain of their appreciation for the
classics does not stop here. It is now declared
that composers of popular songs have frequent
ly made use of themes from the famous com
posers. That song, "I Am Always. Chasing
Rainbows," hai been found to be based on the
same theme ay Chopin' "Impromptu Fantasia.1
Goodbye Dollie, I Must Leave You," also

HITCHCOCK AND THE FARMERS.
After eloquently urging through the columns
of his paper some form of assistance for the
farmers, with his own plan always in the spot
light, the democratic senator from 'Nebraska
nimbly jumps into the ring to oppose the first
practical measure of relief brought forward. Of
course, it is a republican measure, and therefore
heretical, from a democratic point of view; yef
it does not seem too much tb expect that even
a democrat might be induced at a time like this
to give his consent to anything in reason that
would tend to help those for whose welfare he
seems so solicitous.
Senator Hitchcock, however, does not look
at it that way. With all his power, he denounces,
delays and seeks to sidetrack the bill which pro
teoses to levy a tariff on wheat, as a means to
check the importations of Canadian grain by
market operators who are 'pounding down the
price of that product.
In this, the Nebraska senator poses still as a
friend of the farmer I What other friends of
the farmer ares lined up with him in his valiant
battle? The attack is led, we read, by Senators
Hitchcock, Harrison and Gerry Harrison of
Mississippi, wnftse state raises slightly over one
per cent as wheat as Nebraska; Gerry of
Rhode Island, which state raised so little wheat
that it is not even listed in the statistical sum
maries. And on the other side, favoring a tariff
on wheat, is Senator McCumber oftNorth Da
kota, whose state runs a race with Kansas each
year for the honor of first place among the
wheat-producing states of the' union.
Senator Hitchcock of Nebraska stands alone
among the representatives of the great wheat
producing states in heading the battle against this
bill. It is a sham, he cries. What the farmers
need, he tells the senate, is credit, not a tariff.
The Bee is not disposed to dispute the statement
that the farmers have need of cedit, too. But
the federal reserve banking system which con
trols credit unfortunately was created and is
being administered by a democratic administra
tion which steadfastly has refused to heed the
pleas and even prayers of farmers who have
cried aloud to it for help in their time of dis
appointment and distress.
Senator Hitchcock would prefer, it appears,
that the farmers go .unaided in their difficulties
rather than they, should get help through a re
publican measure. In choosing between his party
creed and the agricultural industry of his state,
he lines up with the party. We apprehend, how
ever, that in this instance he will not find his
party so strongly back of him. The.tariff bill,
although threatened with a veto at the White
House, will probably go through the senate, but
this will not lessen the amazement of the home
folks -at the attitude of the' senator, who pleads
for the farmer through' his newspaper and op
poses him on the tyloor of the senate.- t
Taft, Ford and the Jews.
Least of all in America where the races of
the world have fused into a single great nation,
every one contributing its part to progress and
culture, is there room- for bigotry and defama
tion. Here, if anywhere, should there be hope
of a broad tolerance, a spirit of co-operation
and an absence of petty or uriwise bickering or
accusation. Such is4the American temperament
as found in our former president, William How
ard Taft, who. in his calm, judicial manner, late
ly rebuked Henry Ford for the campaign of
anti-Semitism now being conducted in the Bear-
"One of the chief causes of suffering and evil
in the world today is race hatred," says Mr.
Taft, "and any man who stimulates that hatred
has much to answer for. When he does this
by the circulation of unfounded and unjust
charges and the arousing of mean and groundless
fears, his fault is more to be condemned."
By exploitation of the mythical protocols
of "The Wise Men of Zion," Mr. Ford's maga
zine has been endeavoring to link up the entire
Jewish race in a plan to rule the world, joining
international bankers with the persecuted and
starving Jews of eastern Europe in an imaginary
and ridiculous compact. Mr. Taft, finding no
evidence of any such conspiracy asks why, if
Jewish capitalists sway nations and even wield
a world pow'er, more than half of the 13,000,000
Jews in the world are now suffering bitter op
pression and starvation. Against this rock the
whole of Mr. Ford's propaganda is wrecked.
One has but to wad the thin-spun arguments
of the anti-Semites, who are active not only
here, but in England and throughout Europe, to
realize the flimsiness of the allegations.
It cannot be forgotten, that Mr. Ford a few
years ago sent forth 'a peace ship, designed to
proclaim the brotherhood of men. The world
then said that he went too far in a visionary but
ideal direction, and now, in his attack on the
same principle of brotherhood, he has also al
lowed his imagination to lead him far afield, in
the opposite direction. '

"THE lunatic, the lover, and the poet are of
imagination all compact," is a well known line in
Bartlett's Familiar Mouthfuls. It applies, rather
patly, to d'Annunzio, who has distinguished him
self in lunacy, love and song. Him, too, Hazlitt
hit off well in an essay. Speaking of poets, "Their
flights and fancies," he said, "are delightful to
themselves and everybody else, but they make
strange work of matter of fact, and if they were
allowed to act in public affairs would oon turn
the world wrongside out." That part of the
world known as Fiume is turned wrong side out,
and the problem is to turn it back again.

WHY NOT WHISTLE?
We ha va, been accused of whistling to
keep up our courage
Well, "Why not whistle?" -
The boy whistles in going past a grave
yard at midnight, not because he be
lieves the ghost stories but to aid in
closing his mind to the whispering fear
which is inherent in all of us.
Drums beat flags fly and bands play
during "war time"i not because we
are craven or cowardly at heart, but to
help us close our minds to anything but
thoughts of victory.
We have never denied that conditions
were not trying; that money was not
tight, or that the farmer is getting less
for his grain than actual cost of produc
tion. Bfrt what we do contend is, that it is up
to us as intelligent citizens to recognize
that present conditions must be met and
to us as intelligent citizens to recognize
it is better to face them with courage
and whistle while we overcome them,
than it is to play the part of pessimistic
cowards. ' . ;
Intelligent Optimism is a builder. Old
Pessimism is a wrecker par excellence.
