Problem .of Railroad Wages.
It was a very unfortunate thing for alt par
ties concerned, and this necessarily includes the
public, that the adjustment of railroad wages
had! to be made in war time on an emergency
basis. It will be equally as unfortunate if the
readjustment take place on the same scale. When
Mr. McAdoo appjicd the rule of thumb to the
question of 1918, he was moving to secure an
immediate relief from an unbearable situation.
Out of that grew some hideous inequalities, but
these are subject to the patient treatment possi
ble under peace time relation, and do not re;
quire the arbitrary and sometimes violent treat
ment accorded them under vicissitude of war.
The ten specific instances cited by Mr. Krutt
schnitt for the- edification of the senate commit
tee, and through that committee the pubtic, are
veritable but extreme examples of what occurred
when the McAdoo rule went into effect They
are not exactly typical, but they are eloquent of
the abuses that must be corrected. Certainly the
labor board created by the Esch-Cummins act
ha power to deal with such injustices, and may.
be depended upon to remedy thera. While read
ing what Mr. Kruttschnitt has to say, we should
keep in mind that all the injustice is not on one
side. Quite recently in Omaha a man who has
been in employ of a railroad in a clerical capac
ity for longer than twenty years was dismissed,
because the department in which he was em
ployed was abolished. Only a few months ago
that department was established and this cleric
was transferred to it from another. He was ef
ficient, yet when the order came to do away with
the work he was doing, he was turned out, al
though at the time in the department from which
he originally served men much younger than he
in the service were retained. A slight readjust
ment under the seniority rule would have
avoided the injustice done this man.
If, a firm of plumbers sends a workman to do
a repair job, it charges for his time from the mo
ment he leaves the shop, and he gets paid for it.
'A similar rule covers railroad plumbers and pipe
fitters; it makes heavy the cost of repairs done
far away from the centrat point, but such ex
igencies are recognized in other businesses, and
should be in that of the railroads. .
The prime purpose of the railroad is not to
cam dividends for its owners, but to give service
to the public. Rates must be adequate to meet
costs, and these include decent wages. The peo
ple are coming to understand that wage scales
need revision in order to do away with existing
inequalities, but are not ready to see the rail
roads returned to the unrestricted control of
Wall Street management. The managers will do
well if they first restore service and then settle
the wage question.
For Better Americanism.
The co-ordinated effort of the patriotic so
cieties of America, led by the Grand Army, the
Spanish War Veterans and theAmerican Le
gion, to inculcate a truer form of Americanism
is an encouraging sign. One of the recent writ
ers on the topic called attention to the tremen
dous unassimilated mass of foreign life in New
York, and asked what of its future. That will
be safe enough if it be approached in the proper
way. It is not enough to banish the hyphen
from our national life; nor will the task be com
pleted when we have taught the alien citizen
habits of American speech and social intercourse.
Much more than that must be done, and some of
it affects those who have sprung from roots as
old as the government as well as those but lately
come among us. Most of the foreign-born came
here to better their condition. They have been
confronted by false standards.
Until Americans'are ready to accept the same
rule they lay down for others, they will meet
only disappointment in their attempts to make
entirely satisfactory citizens from those born
abroad. Only when the square deal is applied
all around, when the foreign-born understands
that the native-born is governed by the same
law, and when they know the law touches all
alike, then will they become real Americans.
The job is a big one, but not impossible of ac
complishment, though the veterans who are de
voting themselves to the movement will make
greater gains against the line when they more
clearly realize just what is back of those lines.
Behind the Times.
The good, it sometimes happens, die old, and
the pity is that they should ever have to go.
Over in Iowa, at the age of 89, a model land
lord is dead. Although he operated on a syste'm
that could scarcely be expected to win the ap
probation of a world in which business it said to
be business, only that and nothing more, he had
succeeded in amassing close to a million dollars.
He was a breaker of law that is, of economic
laws such as the one which lays it down that the
worse one needs a thing the higher the price
will be and which operates on the flower trade
en Mothers' day and on everything from baby
rattles to tombstones the year round.
This man, Fred Durey o! Manchester, owned
thirty houses which he let to tenants. Instead
of tacking up signs stating that no children were
anted, he offered a cash reduction Sn rent for
very baby borK in his houses. There were other
peculiar characteristics, too; he took up a farm
m 1856 and held on to it, never plastering a
mortgage on it and laying the basis of his for-
ea its iou. He came from England, prac-
tically without means and brought his family
from Illinois to Iowa in a covered wagon.
Eccentric old fellow, Mr. Durey. Too bad
there are not more like him.
Welcome the New Administration.
A new city commission will enter upon its
three-year term today. On it will sit four men
who have had extended and varied experience as
members of the city council, and who are familiar
with the problems of city management in all
details. One of the remaining three has had long
service in the department over which he is to
become head, and is very well acquainted with
its perplexities and exacting duties. The other
two are yet to be tried as administrators of
public affairs, but have records in private life
that justify the expectations held for them.
These men were selected by their fellow
townsmen on the basis of definite and syecific
promises publicly made. They undoubtedly were
sincere, and fully realize that the citizens will
look to them to redeem those pledges. Omaha
requires and expects good government, security
for the citizen at home and abroad, protection
for his person and property; the maintenance of
good order under all circumstances; preserva
tion of public property; protection for the public
health, and such general management of the city's
government as will safeguard all interests, hav
ing due regard to all and without special favor
The task of taking care of all the multifarious
details of a growing community, such as Omaha,
is not a light one, and the people have their pro
portionate share in its discharge. It is not fair
to throw all responsibility and all blame on the
officer; these must be shared by all, and with
proper co-operation will be made so light' as to
almost be inappreciable. Omaha does not look
for somersaults at the city hall, but has a right
to demand that steady hands guide and clear
brains chart the course to be followed through
the coming days.
New Rule on Taxable Assets.
If the telegraphed report from the supreme
court is correct, a considerable addition is made
to the taxable property of the United States. In
the case of the La Belle Iron works, the court
holds in effect that accrued increment is taxable;
that is, whatever advance in value is noted in
the assets of the company must be reflected in
the tax return, regardless of the original Jn vest
ment, where nothing appears to change the form
of investment. In this case the property con
cerned is now valued at $10,000,000, although it
was purchased by the company for $190,000. The
latter figure represents the purchase price or in
vestment at the time, the former its present value
or investment. On the basis of cost or market,
whichever is lower, the company appears to have
taken a profit of $9,810,000 on its iron lands, and
therefore is held for taxes to that extent How
far-reaching this opinion will be scarcely can be
conjectured. It will probably have the effect
of taking cognizance of all the marked-up values
on which income is now being returned, and
promises in that way to tap a new reservoir of
profits. As Mr. H. Archibald Harris of Chicago,
testifying before the senate finance committee,
points out, the "shaking" of the returns for 1917
are bringing out about $35,000,0008 month in addi
tional revenue, and that the returns for 1918 will
very likely jump this to $75,000,000, the profits tax
as a revenue producer is beginning to justify
itself. When the full weight of the court's de
cision in the iron company's case is felt, the
Treasury may be gainer by some billions, enough
at least to make quite a dent in the present
floating debt. 1

Madame Curie and Her Triumph.
When Mr. Bryan has finally disposed of
Darwinism, he may find time to take up the
case of Madame Curie, who has just landed in
America. In all the story of scientific achieve
ment and discovery nothing quite holds the place
assigned to radium. Just as Neptune had to
be discovered, that a vagary in the calculated
movement of Uranus might be accounted for, so
it was necessary to discover radium to fill a gap
in the table of atomic weights. To this Madame
Curie devoted her research, and succeeded in
isolating the substance that completed the cycle
of calculated weights and proved the postulate.
She was not expecting to encounter a radio
active substance that gives off alpha, beta and
gamma rays of such intensity that they pene
trate metals as readily as sunlight penetrates
clear glass. No thought was in her mind that
the emanation from radium would automatically
transmute itself into helium, nor did she dream
of other wonderful properties of the metal, which
investigators have pursued to the result that the
entire system of physics has been reconstructed
to conform to the knowledge unlocked when
this strange clement was brought to light But
she did open the way, and science has availed
itself of the opportunity.
Darwin's survival of the fittest is mild in
comparison with some of the things suggested
in connection with radio-activity. And every one
of them is really an added proof of the wonders
of creation and properly tends to magnify the
Creator. If Mr. Bryan can ever contribute to
the world something as useful as the notion of
evolution or the discovery of radium, he will
have served society well.
'(From the Washington Star.)
Speaker Gillett, by a decision yeterday,
which settles apparent conflict between two
house rules never before raised, hal opened the
way for a happy wedding.
Tuesday a resolution favorably reported from
the house committee on immigration and nat
uralization to admit Emil S. Fischer of New
York to American citizenship was defeated by
eight votes. When Representative Siegel of
New York, in charge of the measure, let it be
known that, not only had Mr. Fischer rendered
services to this country, especially in China,
"which gold would never pay for," but that he
now wants to get married, and the lady of his
choice will not wed him until he has a clear title
to American citizenship, the sympathies of the
house were aroused,
Yesterday was calendar Wednesday and un
der that rule, adopted in the Sixtv-first coneress
1910, no other measures are in order except by
call ot committees.
Rule 18 of the house provides that on the day
a vote is taken, or on the day following, any
member who voted in the affirmative can arise
and move to reconsider. Representative Ford
ney arose yesterday and moved to reconsider ac
tion on the Fischer resolution. A point of order
was made that this could not be done on calen
dar Wednesday. After hearing: considerable ar
gument. Speaker Gillett ruled that the motion to
reconsider could be entered on calendar v ednes
day, although it could not be considered. Thi
reconciles the conflict between the two rules, and
Representative Siegel said that he would call up
the Lmil S. Fischer case again in a couple of
days, "when it will be promptly passed." he aid
the story of how Mr. 1-ischer has failed to
qualify as an American citizen is thus told
the records of the case:
Emil S. Fischer was born in Austria in 1865,
When under the age of twenty-ne he left and
went to Brazil. In 1892 he came to New York
City for the purpose of ioininz his parents. His
father, upon arrival in this country, made appli
cation for citizenship, but died shortly there-
alter. The mother of Mr. Fischer lived the re
maindcr of her life in New York.
Emil S. Fischer remained in the United States
from October, 1892, until March, 1894. when he
went to China. In 1899 he returned to New
York. He remained in New York until the end
of 1903. November 4, 1903, he took out his first
papers to become an American citizen in the
district court, of the United States for the south
em district of New York. Within a month
thereafter he left to go to Russia and Siberia,
but returned here early in 1904. and in 1906 pro
.ceeded to China. He again returned to the United
States in 1910.. Leaving here, he came back in
1912 and then went to China once more. In
1915 the Chinese government commissioned him
as an adviser and foreign secretary to the Chi
nese government and sent him to the San Fran
cisco exposition. He remained in the United
States until December 22, 1916,-when he sailed
again and arrived in Shanghai in January, 1917,
He returned to the United States March 2, 1920.
During his entire residence in China and in
this country he has regarded himself as prac
tically an American citizen and each time he has
stated and given New York City as his home
As appears from the testimony taken before the
committee, he has always rendered invaluable
assistance to our government from the time that
he arrived in China up to and including when
tha Fifteenth United States infantry required
help over there
The report from the house committee shows
that Mr. Fischer has rendered very valuable
services to the United States and to American
interests, as follows:
There is no question about the loyalty, pa
triotism and devotion of Mr. Fischer to our in
stitutions as demonstrated by him both here in
America and in China. It has been truly said,
"Moral character is the foundation of good citi
zenship." In addition thereto loyalty and devo
tion to our republic, both in its hour of need
and In times of peace, are two elements to be
considered in conferring citizenship. Mr. Fischer
has demonstrated that he possesses all of these.
On account of his being in China, it has be
come impossible for him to avail himself of the
law, which requires that he must be a continuous
resident of the United States for five years pre
ceding his admission as a citizen. For more than
seventeen years he has endeavored to become
an American citizen. May 1 1, 1920, he again ap
plied for his first papers before the district court
of the United States for the southern district of
All of nis interests and sympathies have been
and are centered' in our civilization. He is ex
ceedingly anxious to be a full naturalized citizen
of the United States. He. is also in the position
that h; cannot be married, as the young lady
that hei is engaged to is an American citizen and
declines to marry hiiu until he becomes such. He
has always exclusively represented American
firms abroad in China and he is to go abroad
again to represent the North China Commercial
company, a corporation organized under the laws
of the state of New York and all of whose di
rectors and stockholders are American citizens.
The position in foreign trade which we have
acquired will be lost to us unless we can send
abroad men who thoroughly understand the peo
ple of the country to which they are going, in
cluding their languages and customs. The danger
of losing that trade is now well recognized.
There are only a very few men in America at the
present time, if any, who possess the knowledge
of Chinese conditions, customs and language as
Mr. Fischer does.
Through no fault cf his own, but on account'
of the early death of his father, he has not been
able to acquire American citizenship without giv
ing up the work winch he Has been doing in

T. B. AND MARRIAGE.
That persons with well-developed
consumption do get well enough to
lead active, useful lives no longer
can be questioned. One man writes
that he has 15 persons with cases
of arrested consumption working in
his office. The country is full of per
sons who have had consumption, but
who are carrying on with more than
the average ability.
Since men are men and women are
women, the question is asked, shall
persons who have been cured marry?
Mary and Ted Mack, who are the
authors of a very helpful little book
named "Outwitting the T. B. Bugs,"
answer the question In The Journal
of Outdoor Life. At least they an
swer it affirmatively by telling their

They advise persons with arrested
consumption to marry, because a
t. b. naturally has to live a certain
mode of life to which a well person
mlffht not subscribe.
The person who has had t. b. and
has learned enough about It to re
gain health must of necessity have
digested the valuable lesson or prop
er living and sanitation. He is, there
fore, less dangerous to a community
than is the well person, r. a. s
should not marry until their cases
have been arrested. Then with the
knowledee of living they have
learned they can be of great assist
ance one to the other in completing
their health program. They must
of necessity eat the same kind of
food, they need the same good fresh
air, go in for the same exercises, and
generally live In conformity with the
rules they learned to obey while
chasing the cure.
Mary and Ted, married, made one
rule from which they have never de
viated. That was never to save on
their table. They chased the cure
together for two years on Ted's
salary of J100 a month. Then they
went in business for themselves.
They have prospered. They do all
things in moderation, except taking
long auto trips in the country.
The editorial note in The Journal
of Outdoor Life warns against a. uni
versal acceptance of the news of
Mary and Ted by consumptives. In
tho first place some may overlook
the advice to wait until the disease
has been arrested in both persons.
In the second place, each person con
templating matrimony should ask
"Have we the same good common
sense that wa shown by Mary and
Ted Mack? Have we learned their
lesson and are we willing to live it?

of prospective children to be con

Our Farthest North.
Many Americans have worried about a stubby
little peninsula'which extends from Canada into
the Lake of the Woods north of the forty-ninth
parallel which marks the established boundary
between Canada and the United States from the
Lake of the Woods to Puget Sound. This small
area, chopped oft' from Canada and surrounded
on three sides by the waters of the Lake of the
Woods, belongs to the United States. Disre
garding Alaska it is the northernmost land of
the American republic.
No map shows any towo or village in the
remote and isolated region, it appears merely
as a trackless forest wilderness. Now it is in
dicated that there is a village in this forgotten
enclave, for a postoffice has been established at
Penasse, and a weekly mail service is maintained.
During tV winter the service will be- by horse
and sleign across the ice of the lake. In the
Summer a motorboat will be used.
The chunk of land which Uncle Sam holds in
defiance of all considerations of geographical
propriety is commonly known as the "North
west Angle." It is nearly square, and measures
about twelve miles each way. The population
of Penasse is 150, and the population of the en
tire region is but little more. It is pleasing to
know that the Penassians, most hyperborean of
all non-Alaskan Americans, are at least officially
and comfortably connected with the rest of the ,
country. It becomes unnecessary to worry about
their isolation. Instead, we may welcome them
as brothers since a whimsical geographical quirk
makes them Americans instead of Canadians.

this society would be urged to take
