Labor, the Courts and the Future.
, A declaration of intent for future action, is
sued from a conference of leaders of interna
tional labor unions affiliated with the American
Federation of Labor, sounds very much like a
f eneral defi. It will bear some examination, how
ever, and may not prove so terrible when it is
carefully looked into. Principally, ir thunders
against the injunction. This is no new sounding
of a doctrine, but has been set forth again and
again by the federation in its conventions, 2nd
with little or no appreciable effect. Courts have
ruled entirely around the circle from pole to
pole in labor disputes, and the terms of the in
junction usually indicate not the law or the equity
in the case, but the temper of the attorney who
draws the order and of the judge who signs it.
Men have been sent to jail for violation of these
orders, which are not law, but the emanations
from a judge, and probably will be again, but
the struggle goes on.
Just now it is taking the form of a test of
strength between the organized employers and'
the organized workers. Under the guise of the
"open shop" the employers, according to tho
view of the union leaders, hope to establish an
advantage. We will not here take" up a discus
sion of the merits and demerits of this proposi
tion. It leads nowhere. The right to sell his
labor power is inherent in each man, and not to
be .denied him; the right to join with his fellows
in a common effort to sell his labor power to
better advantage is also inherent and undenia
ble, and the right of the purchaser to make the
best bargain possible is equally established in
law an,d equity. What must be done is to set
Up a balance between these natural rights, which
conceivably may be harmonized, but only when
justice and not selfishness or arbitrary power
The academic discussion of the injunction
leads only to wider divergence or a more rigid
attitude in the stand of the contestants. How
to soften this stand is the real question. So far
governmental interference has not been happy.
Both labor and capital resent the well meant but
more or less bungling intrusion of the state or
federal authorities into the dispute, and yet it is
recognized by both sides that finally some power
must be potent to check the one or the other and
so prevent excessive abuse of an advantage tem
porarily gained for any advantage gained in the
way f force is but transient and settles nothing.
Bad examples galore may be cited, involving evil
practices on either side, yet such recitals are of
no avail, and rather tend to hinder the approach
to 'the ultimate adjustment.
Two things must be kept in view: Labor will
continue to demand a steadily increasing share of
created wealth; labor must give in return for its
wages an equivalent in productive effort. High
wages and scant work are no more consistent
than t big day's stint and short pay. Capital
4nust recognize the right of labor to a just share
f the output that is made possible by the joint
efforts of the two. Questions of open shop or
closed shop, of injunction or no injunction, and
all the inconsequential will vanish when men
engaged in industry, whether managers or
muckers, come to realize that only as they work
together will they prosper and that neither can
perpetually thrive at the expense of the other.
Nebraska's Consolidated Budget.
Cutting more than two and one-half millions
off the estimates submitted by the goirjtrnor, the
legislature presents the state a budget that con
templates the expenditure of $21,284,774.43 to
support the public undertakings during the next
two years. This is at the rate of a little over
$7 per- capita for the population which is not at
all excessive, when it is remembered that it will
pay for all the activities of the state, adminis
trative, executive, educational, charitable, cor
rectional, for highway extensions and improve
ments, for the work on the new state house and
all the innumerable things in which Nebraska
takes part as a business concern. The budget
has a formidable appearance, simply because it
is the first time the figures have been consolida
ted and presented as a whole. As a matter of
lact, it is but $94,000 greater than in the pre.
ceding two years, and this figure is more than
compensated for in the increase of $352,220 al
lotted the Department of Agriculture. Economies
effected in other items reduce this to the figure
stated. However, examination of the summary
of the budget indicates that the legislature s
proceeding on safe lines in holding expenditures
down to practical requirements and is making no
allowance for fads or fancies. The size of the
budget merely serves to show to what txfnt
the machinery of government in Nebraska has
been extended with the growth of the state.
Holding the Island of Yap.
The League of Nations itself is getting an
Impressive illustration of the advantage possessed
by the United States in not being a member. At
ths present convention of the council of the
league, an entire day was spent in consideration
ef the American note with reference to man
dates. Right here let it be said that the first
real information the people have received con
cerning the attitude of the Wilson administration
towards the mandate awarding the former Ger
man Island in the Pacific to Japan is now fur
pished through news from the council's meeting.
What is of more interest is the apparent firmnes
with which our president has resisted the sacii
fice of American interests by turning over to
Japan the important cable landings in the Pa
cific. Yap is vital to the system of cable com
munications, and its control means the domina
tion of the business in peace or war. The United
States declines to permit this domination to be
exercised by Japan; from the incomplete text of
the note as transmitted front Paris the inference
is drawn that Mr. Wilson would consent to have
Yap denationalized, and put under a joint con
trol. This, of course, is in full accord with his
international policy. With the promised reversal
of this policy under Mr. Harding, it is not unrea
sonable to think that the demand will be made
that the island in question be turned over to
American control. This will assure us against
possible interference by rivals, and while it may
appear selfish, it is no more so than any other
reasonable step the government has taken for de
fense. Yap is needed and should come to the
Loose Talk and World Peace.
A phrase that is attributed to Charles E.
Hughes, soon to be secretary of state, is that,
"There is too much loose talk jn the world."
Examples of that are easy enough to find at
home, not only concerning our own institutions,
but our relations with foreign nations as well.
This, however, is not confined to America, but
throughout the world. Every one is a stales
man these days.
In France, we are told, the theaters are setting
up as international forumsThe Paris police have
acted to prevent a comedian from repeating
nightly a ditty making a scandalous attack on
American soldiers and coupling vulgar insinua
tions with a demand for the cancellation of the
Another example of the reports afloat that
tend to set up nations that lead to misunder
standing, comes from Canada and concerns a
new history reported to have been adopted in
the public schools there. This book informs the
children that the conduct of the United States
upiuntil our entry into the war was without con
science and accuses us of being a nation of war
profiteers. These are things sometimes said in
the bosom of our domestic circle, as anyone who
remembers the heated discussions of the last
few years will realize, but to give Canadian chil
dren the impression that our faults are greater
than our virtues, and to neglect the good and
speak the bad, is not policy. So say the news
papers and those citizens of Toronto who are
objecting to the text. Backed by the Navy
League of Canada, the board of education is
standing firm, both perhaps believing that pa
triotiivn is bred in contempt of foreign countries
and might be weakened by admiration or even
understanding of lands beyond the border.
In seeing the mistakes of others, Americans
might well take to heart the wisdom of fairness
and restraint in discussing foreign affairs. Loose
talk on our part will not bring any of the friend
liness that is now so sorely needed for world
reconstruction, and nothing is more foolish than
to speak despitefully merely because abroad
there are silly groups lacking balance.
Australia Meets the Japanese.
Australia, as the frontier of the white world,
may indeed have more to fear from the Japanese
nation than has the more thickly settled America.
It is thus that nature works, abhoring a vacu-.m,
and if the Australians should neglect the op
portunity to develop their own resources, the
same biological law which has forced I the
Japanese to find new outlets for the energies
and population might be expected to carry them
into the southern continent.
Accordingly, Australia is energetically set
ting about the task of building up its own. civ
ilization without depending on the cheap Oriental
labor that once toiled on the great sugar planta
tions. The policy of the government has been
to aid citizens to become farmers and settle
somewhere else than on the fringe of the coast.
Food is necessary, and if white men coujd not
be enabled to produce it profitably, then some
other race with a lower standard of living would
have to do so. For ten years the Australian com
monwealth has been establishing co-operative
communities and homes for farm workers. Since
the war more than half of the irrigated farms
established in this way have been granted to dis
charged soldiers. Good homes, fine orchards
and productive fields now exist in places where
in 1910 not an acre was cultivated.- These farms
average 52 acres each and the settlers are al
lowed 31 years in which to pay for' them. By
making it possible for its own people to live on
the land, Australia is meeting the threat of
California, which likewise holds attractive pos
sibilities for the yellow race, has in the last three
years adopted a similar system of enabling farm
hands and landless poor men to secure homes
of their own. These new homesteaders are in
tensive farmers who prove that the white men,
if given encouragement to start, can supply the
vacuum that has been filling up with Japanese
vegetable and fruit growers. Through their co
operative associations they have found this
neglected branch of agrciulture profitable. The
plan worked out there by the state under the
supervision of Elwood Mead is one well worth
study in other parts of the country where it is
complained that men are leaving the land for
One of the disadvantages of competition in
-armament is that as soon as America outstrips
its rivals they will find it advisable to join their
forces and thus maintain their load jointly.
The only trouble with this public regulation
of industry seems to be that the public is always
called on to guarantee profits to the poor cor
poration in question.
Rumors of war preparations in France are

THE THOUSAND AXD OXE AFTERNOONS.
The taxicab had collided with a large auto

pants of which did not tarry to discuss the mat
ter, but hastened down the street: male and
female hastened they, for reasons best known
to themselves. With less reason the three ladies
of Bagdad followed their example, and Nathan
Weatherwax was left with his driver. 'What is
the damage?' he inquired. The taxicab man'
looked at the wreck of the meter and replied,
'Eight dollars." 'That." said the importer, hand
ing him the money, 'should give you a new start
in life.' Said tlie man, 'Beat it if you don't want
your name in the paper.' Mr. Weatherwax
thought the advice good, and walked rapidly
for several blocks before he paused to look
about him. There was little to see. because of
a fog, and that little was not attractive frame
tenement houses, a gloomy cavern beneath an
elevated railway structure, and a eingle street
light, shining nebulously. The importer recalled
that Chicago was little better than a mining
camp, and his mind beginning to run upon
marauders he advanced with increasing trepida
tion. His direst suspicions were presently eon
firmed, for when he reached the street light he
was halted by a highwayman, who flourished a
pistol of disconcerting size. As the diamond
merchant had left Mr. Weatherwax to pay the
bill at the cafe the importer had little money
remaining on him, and the robber voiced his
disappointment roughly. He seemed, however,
to be more displeased with himself than his ill
luck, and was about to depart with his slight
takings when his eye fell suddenly upon the
shirt which the importer was wearing. At his
suggestion Mr. Weatherwax removed the gar
ment, which with undercoat and weskit the
highwayman threw across his arm. He was
considerately allowed to retain his greatcoat,
and for the second time within the hour was
invited to beat it, a vulgar phrase which was.
becoming odious in his ears. But. as on the
previous ocasion, he thought the advice worth

THE NERVOUS CHILD.
A child of 7 years who dominates
bis family bad the vocabulary of a
child of 3 years of age and could
not go alone two blinks to KChonl.
Ho was investigated by Dr. Sinilry
Plantou. He found that at 7 months
cf age this child had practically re
fused milk and ltvd on a diet of
hhked potatoes with an occassional
bottle of one of thi sweet starchy
baby food. Ever since this child
had eaten what it pierced and re
fused the foods chosen by Its par
ents. At " years the food is de
scribed by Hlanton us Infantile In
Another finicky, nervous child was
found by Rlanton to be living on
potatoes, jelly and gravy.
It Is true -.hat some part of the
trouble of the nervous children in
vestigated was due to the diet in
no fnstn nopthat, best for a growing
child. Fvery bad effect is itself
KOinethiiv; of a bntl cause. The
wrong eating habits of nervous chil
dren in time operate 1c bring about
Intestinal disturbances, which tend
to increase nervousness.
The main point of Dr. Wanton's
address on nervous children was
that capricious appetite and general
tinickincss about earing is one of
the. first as well as one of the most
important signs of nervous insta
bility. Dr. Blanton discovered that the
bahtes with verv bad nervous hered
ity were slow in learning to swal
low. When they were first put to
the breast they swallowed poorly,
si,'ked poorly, regurgitated, and
generally fed poorly.
At 1 month of age they could not
swallow their food any better than
p. normal baby that was younger.
Older babies that will only eat cer
tain foods and are generally peculiar
about their eating habits are almost
certain to develop into nervous
children. Some of them become
persistent bad wetters. many de
velop speech defects, such as stam
mering and fluttering.
Dr. Hlanton lays it down as a
fundamental law "as being abso
lutely essential that children of
neurotic parentage he taught? reg
ular and healthy food and sleep
habits. The very fict that they are
finicky about their eating and are
restless sleeper.? make It the mom
necessary that they should ife well

are headed for the class of nervous
Unfortunately nervous children in
most ca-es have nervous parents of
a type poorly calculated to train a
nervous child. A young child Is
el ways intensely self-centered. He
'ikes the position of family czar.
The education and training of a
child is a socializing process, one
ir. which, if the training be carried
out properly, the child gradually
and contentedly surrenders the cen
ter of the stage.
No other circumstances so hap
pily gets the youngster out of the
center of the spotlight as doea ac
quiring a baby sister or brother.
This ranks 100 as a socializing force.
When there is a combination of
nervous parents and a stubborn, bad
tempered child, who is at the same
time an only child, the probfCrn is
very difficult. Some form of nervous
instability is very apt to develop.
