, Disarmament Plans Not Lagging.
Headers tor immediate disarmament of the
United States anil all llic nations of the world
vnight accomplish the:r purpose easier were they
to go about the jolj in a more systematic man
ner. Merely to urge the desirability of a world
without war will not set them far on towards the
goal they hope to reach, nor when they ad
versely criticize those who do not wholly agree
V'ith them do they aid the general movement.
Mow, as at the end of every war, there is a great
spiritual revulsion against war. This time the
reaction is the more scriou and widespread for
the reason that the war itself affected more of the
people of the earth than any in all history. Con-idrrab'c-
progress hud already been made in the
direct' 11 of at lea: t a limitation of armament
prior to ';M. One (lenient blocked the way,
but it yince lias been effectually removed. Now
the question is coining on for international con
sideration once more.
The overwhelming sentiment of the . United
States- is in lavor of a peaceful world. Our na
tional genius is not warlike, despite the dema
gogic pretence that we are perpetually in danger
ot a militaristic control., At the moment the
president of the United States is earnestly, de
voutly seeking the way to peace. So, too, is the
congress of the United States. That there is a
difference of opinion as to the method to follow
does not alter the fact that all arc anxious to
find the way. While it may seem that the senate
and the house arc working at cross-purposes, to
so charge them is both unfair and absurd. Any
divergence of views that may exist between them
serve only to illustrate the diliiculties that lie i'i
the approach to the topic.
Disarmament can not be achieved by any off
hand process. Many steps preliminary must be
taken. Confidence between nations first must
come, with a composition of many conflicting in
terests, and the establishment of a mutual trust
to replace the suspicions and jealousy that now
exists. Mankind was not purged of any consid
erable part of its infirmities and propensities
through the operation of the war. Experience
since the armistice was signed should be ample
warning to any of the danger that yet persists.
"Hope deferred maketh the heart sick," but the
perversity of human nature has postponed many
times the blessed hour w hen "the lion ,and the
lamb shall lie down together, and a little child
Shalt lead them."
The president of the United States is pledged
to the policy of disarmament; he only awaits
authority from congress to issue a call for a
conference on the point.' Is it not fair to accord
to him a sincerity that is inferentially denied by
the clamors for precipitate action, and to await
the outcome of a discussion that is not materially
aided by hysteria?
v. A Mad Act.
Worse than a mad dog is the bandit who fa-
tally shot a woman on the street in Omaha Sat
urday night. There is not, of course, any system
cf ethics generally observed by robbers, but
"usually they refrain from such desperate and
hearties acts. Savagery knows nothing more
ruthless than this murder.
" Out around Ihe state the impression has been
fostered that Omaha is a place where such deeds
fnay be cxpected. Tliis is no more true of Omaha
than of any other well governed city. Mad 'dogs
are found, now and then, even in the most peacc
iul rural communities. Only last . week the
discovery of a body floating in the Niobrara
,' river exposed a slaying committed in the coun
try, fully as atrocious, according to report, as
any Omaha has ever seen.
Cit'cs tre not particularly places of wicked
ness and crime. The killing of Mrs. C. M. Hy-
land is as much of a shock to residents of
Omaha as it is to those of any part of the state.
Surely the police yll not fail to apprehend the
; Making a New Supreme Court.
,- Whether Mr. Taft or Mr. Hughes, or sonic
one not yet mentioned be named to the vacancy
caused by the death of Chief Justice White, the
episode of his death again calls attention to a
fact that was given some prominence during
, the campaign last year. It is within the range
of possibility that Mr. Harding will have oppor
tunity to entirely change the composition of that
august tribunal, as three others of the nine
judges may be replaced by his appointees. Jus
tice Holmes, McKenna and Day all are past the
age . and have served more than the requisite
number of years to entitle them voluntarily to
retire. Each of these is well beyond the allotted
ta of man't life, and Justice Holmes has
reached four-score, so' there is every likelihood,
of the president having to name a successor for
each of them. Interest in the situation grows
largely from the fact that both Holmes and
McKenna belong to what is known as the
Platitudinarian" schools as opposed to the "strict
constructionist" group. They, with Justices
Braodeis and Clarke are looked to to furnish the
interesting dissenting opinions that characterize
every important decision, particularly those in
volving issues between human rights and prop
erty rights. No hope is entertained that a court
-will ever be unanimous on these questions, and
the certainty that rigorous dissent is forthcom
ing warrants faith in the body on whose ma
jority vote depends the law and the progress of
the nation. Mr. Harding has before him a duty
more grave than many realize.
Health and Garbage Disposal.
Once more Omaha is confronted with the
problem of garbage collection and disposal. As
so often happens when the business is left in
private hands, the city has taken a chance of the
fulfillment and continuance of its scavenger con
tract and lost. Arrangements of this sort with
men who haul the kitchen refuse to farms for
feeding hogs are tentative at best. Frequently,
as in this case, where the city pledged payment
of $45,000 a year to the collector, lack of profit,
disease among the hogs or other causes have
left him with a loss and the city without any
organized system of disposal.
Commissioner Zimman declares that the gar
bage question will continue to be troublesome
until the city votes bonds for an incineration
plant. A proposal for a vote on issuing $300,000
bonds for this purpose has been initiated and is
deserving of support when it comes up in the
election this fall.
Health is the primary consideration in this
matter, and burning is the only satisfactory way
of dealing with it. The process of incineration
has been in use for 35 years, and now several
hundred American cities are using this method,
among them being 19 of the 66 cities of more
than 100,000 population. Tin cans and other
refuse are handled along with the rest. Al
though this cleanses and destroys without odor,
it represents a complete loss of the chemical
matter found in kitchen leavings.
A more modern and economical plan than
mere incineration is reduction. By this process,
which is considered best adapted to cities of
more than 100,000 population, the inherent values
are extracted from this refuse and it is reduced
from obnoxious matter to a refined and whole
some product, part of it vegetable oil and part
fertilizer. Twenty-nine cities with reduction
plants now produce 36,000 tons of grease and
150,000 tons of fertilizer per annum, valued at
$11,000,000. This amount of grease is sufficient
to make 200,000,000 cakes of soap, and a large
portion is used for such purpose.
Cleveland, which has used the reduction
process for ten years, sells 3,000,000 pounds of
grease a year. Paper, rags and tin cans are sal
vaged, baled and sold, also. Los Angeles, New
York City and New Bedford have the latest
type of dehydrating machinery. From one ton
of refuse the reduction plant at the latter city
obtains: one-fifth ton of fertilizer, valued at $15;
70 pounds of grease, $4.90; and 30 pounds of
bones, 45 cents, with a total value of $8.35.
It is said that for a city of the size of Omaha
this method should result in profit rather than
expense. Thus, in Los Angeles, the city is paid
51 cents a ton for garbage delivered at the plant
of a private reduction company in the heart of
the city. The cost of collection is about 35
cents a ton, which leaves a net profit to the
This is the sort of scavenger service that
Omaha needs. The cost of installing a plant is
heavy, but the expenses of operation are not
large. It is possible that it might be financed
on a. capital of $300,000, and the subject is one
that demands attention, not only on the aspect
of cost, but of sanitation and the utilization of
waste as well.
Sales Tax "Evidence"
Fallacy of Some Arguments
Presented Against the Plan
Pluck of Pueblo Prophetic.
"The outstanding feature of the Pueblo flood
disaster is the utter absence 'of discouraged
grief," says an Associated Press dispatch from
there. It is just what we expected to hear.
Pueblo's people undoubtedly feel grief and sor
row deeply for the calamity which has overtaken
so many of their number. Homes have been
wrecked, families broken up, lives dear to many
are mourned by relatives and friends, and im
mense property loss has fallen on the victims.
Hut they do not mourn as those without hope.
A calm courage, a willingness to pluck fortune
from the grasp of disaster, marks the city. It will
rise again, stronger and better than before, build
ing for permanence, and go ahead to its destiny
strong and vigorous for having overcome adver
sity. That'is what makes American cities great;
they overcome misfortune; fires, tornadoes,
earthquakes, all forms of terrible visitation over
take and shatter them, but out of the wreckage
the spirit of youth and strength, sustained by
hope and faith, spring up to rebuild and recon
struct and go aheld. The process has been re
peated so many times that it may be accepted
as, characteristic of our people. Discoursed
grief is about the last thing to look, for when the
job calls for plucky acceptance of a situation and
energetic effort to remedy it. '
Rail Rates and Unemployment.
Shippers of lumber and road building ma
terial have been laying their demands for lower
freight rates before railway officials in Wash
ington. Everyone knows the effect of high
transportation costs on the price of lumber and
the process of building., A cut in this tariff
would provide one more stimulus to the struggle
against a housing shortage.
Similarly important is the request for lower
rates on road building materials. It is reported
that throughout the nation highway improvement
is virtually at a standstill because of the heavy
burden of rates on cement" and other supplies.
Government reports show that more men
were idle in May than in April, in spite of the
natural tendency to open up new work with the
coming of warm weather. With building and
road construction hampered by excessive freight
rates, it is proving difficult to resume business
as usual. There has been enough shilly-shallying
over railroad rates. It is time to end these
conferences; make a reduction, perhaps of an
experimental nature, and start traffic moving in
its old volume.
The Lincoln jury that found King guilty of
murder deserves commendation for its courage
in resisting the specious pleading of a clever at
torney. Such stamina is too rare in Nebraska

The second coming of summer is also wel

(From the New York Timet.)
Opponents of the salc3 tax, like the railway
brotherhoods, fancy that their arguments and
even their "beliefs" arc evidence. Thus the sen
ate committee listened to the statement by Prof
Fairchild of his belief that the sales tax was
designed "ultimately" to supplant the income
tax. If true, that would be important ultimately,
but not now. If it is untrue it is of no im
portance now or ultimately. Sales tax advocates
nave proposed that the sales tax shall make
good the failure of the income surtaxes to be
productive above 30 or 40 per cent. If Prof.
Fairchild knows of any supporter of the sales
tax who has the same belief as himself that the
sales tax can, or should, or is designed, to super
sede the income tax, he would do well to make
the name or names public.
It is true that Senator La Follette argued that
"we nave reached the beginning of the end of
the income tax when a sales tax becomes a part
ot the revenue system. But that is rather the
testimony of a friend of the most obnoxious sort
of income tax than of a friend of the sales tax,
and the senator and professor must be set down
as expressing only personal opinions. That ap
pears from Senator Penrose's prompt reply that
the income tax has come to stay.
The strength of the new tax proposal lies in
the failure of the excess profits tax and the
income surtaxes to realize the predictions of
those who traduce the sales tax and adhere to
the proved errors of their theories. At the same
hearing they objected to the untaxing of the
rich and claim that the sales tax burdens Ihe
poor unduly. The poor man spends all his in
come, they argued, and is taxed on all he
spends. But the millionaire who spends a tenth
of his income escapes on nine-tenths. Thus the
sales tax was represented as an unjust income
tax. But the millionaire who spends $100,000 is
taxed fifty-fold the tax of the man who earns
and spends $2,000. If the sales tax makes the
millionaire pay taxes on $100,000 of expenditures,
it is almost a clear gain, for exemptions are so
liberally provided as life preservers for the mil
lionaires tnat tliey can decide for themselves
what surtax they shall pay. Theoretically they
may escape all payment by putting all their
wealth into exempt bonds. There is excess of
proof in the income tax returns that billions
escape the tax collector in that way. The sales
tax would make such escape more difficult.
ihe critics ot the sales tax who condemn
it for the difficulty of its administration should
pay more attention to the faults of the present
tax. The "invested capital" of 50,000 corpora
tions has not been settled even so far h.irt ae
1917. For 1918 only 60 per cent of the returns
Have been examined, both personal and cor
porate. For 1919 only 10 to 15 per cent have
been looked at, and for later years practically
nothing has been done by way of revision of
the self-taxing statements. The most important
have been prepared by skilled counsel. The re
visions are made by clerks who serve for $2,000
or less, as preparation for resigning from gov
ernment duty and earning more by reducing col
lections than by making them. It is said that
there are $1,000,000,000 of uncollected taxes,
which fast are becoming uncollectible. What
ever the defects of the sales tax, it is no slight
recommendation of it that it would be paid as
sales were made and would reach the govern
ment even monthly, if the law were made so.

Humanizing 0 f ficial
Pueblo, its head above water, says, "Let's
got' .That' the spirit that win.
Postmaster General Hays has already insti
tuted a number of timely innovations in the de
partment over which he presides. The depart
ment and the general public have been swift to
approve. For, in his announced determination
to "humanize" the postal service, the keen and
able postmaster general strikes a chord to which
the men and women of today are exceedingly
responsive. ' Having first divined and subse
quently established the existence of popular
responsiveness to the idea he has "had in mind,
"General" Hays presses forward boldly. "Get
away from the cold form letters," is the gist of
his latest order to his department.
Employes of the department have, in the case
of innovations instituted to date, readily adapted
themselves to the new order of things. The idea
appeals, and, in all seriousness, there is no
greater incentive to the efficient performance of
any task than the assurance that that work is
being done in an atmosphere of "human" sym
pathy and understanding. Yet one can not but
speculate, as one considers the new order, upon
the possibilities which an enthusiastic adoption
of the new plan for "official correspondence"
Official correspondence lias, indeed, ever been
a drab and routine matter. It has the habit of
beginning, "Sir" or "Madam;" has proceeded
to refer to "your letter of the steenth inst." and
has dragged on through a series of colorless
paragraphs to the signature of the writer, who
professes, with ill-concealed shallowness, to be
the addressee's "obedient servant" or to belong
to him "respectfully" or "truly" or in some other
unlikely manner. Henceforth such stereotyped
absurdities are tp be under the ban of the Post
office department. The cold form letter is to
go. The postmaster general gives various sam
ples as to how the thing should be done. But
they have not yet been made public, and one
may, in the light of that oversight, be pardoned
for the mental picture of a pile of official letters
upon Mr. Hays desk of a morning the first be
ginning, "Will, dear, I had your nice long letter
in which you suggested, etc.," and signed "with
love and kisses" by the chief of this or that
bureau. The imagination staggers as it seeks to
draft the "human" reaction of the popular post
master general. Washington Star.
"Going Off Half-Cocked."
Mrs. Ray Lyman Wilbur, president of the
Woman's League for the Peace Treaty, has sent
to President Harding a telegram protesting
"against the unauthorized statement of Ambas
sador Harvey. 'that America would not directly
or indirectly have anything to do with any as
sociation of nations." This is 'all right, except
that Mr. Harvey never said anything of the sort
charged up against him. All he did was to make
it clear that the American government is through
with the Wilson league, which is quite another
matter. The good women who compose hc
league for the peace treaty ought to remember
that it is sometimes better to be accurate than
enthusiastic. Detroit Free Press.

Omaha, June 6. To the Editor
of The Bee: In order to bring pros

will do it and do it quick. At first
glance it may appear ridiculous but
think a little further.

could go and always And work at a
minimum wage, say $2.50 per day.
If the government started this, the
tirst day would probably cost $2,000,
000, but every day after that it would
grow less and less and less, until
after a very short time it would be
very little. Why? Because when
that first day ended the men would
have 12,000.000 to spend for food,
clothing, shelter, etc. Business
would begin to pick up, and after a
few days employers would want .help.
Where would they get it? They
would hire, some of these men at
better wages, who would then rjave
more money to spend, which would
stimulate business some more and
so the thing would go on and on and
very shortly everybody would be

Some years ago an initiative and
referendum- amendement was added
to. the Missouri constitution. The
good bubbled with happy expecta
tion. The short cut to perfection
had been found. The grand secret
of good government was revealed.
Henceforth Missouri was to be the
model of a new-model common
wealths. Our indomitable progres
sive friend, the Kansas City Star,
was among the most passionate
worshippers. Now, alas! it is ready .
to burn the god adored. It "has '
been convinced by the experience of
the last few years" that the disad
vantages of the amendment "great
ly outweigh its possible good to the
state." Curious is the explanation
of the backsliding. When the
amendment was adopted the legis
lature "had been notoriously tinder
the control of big interests." There
was always a fight to keep the legis
lature "from granting away the
rights of the people." It was sup
posed that the power to submit laws
to the people would protect their
Since then, under tho Influence of
the progressive movement, legisla
tures "have become more responsive
to the popular will, and progressive
legislative programs have been the
outcome." That Is. a progressive
program is always the popular will.
Strangely enough, the popular will
has failed to confirm the progressive
measures. Tho black-hearted inter
ests "have turned to the initiative
and referendum" that is, to the
peopje "as the best weapon for at
taining their ends." Thus, what
was to be the majestic expression of
the people's will expresses the will of
miserable lawyers and loathsome
corporations. Unbelievers In the
sacred "reform" will surely not be
brutal enough to intimate that the
distress of its former friends in Mis
souri arises from their confusion of
what they want with what the peo
No doubt it is true, as our eon
temporary says, that "the laws at
tacked aro often of a technical
character, in which it Is difficult to
arouse general Interest and which
can be defeated by an interested
minority;" but it is everywhere true
that it is difficult to arouse the gen
eral interest in referendums, be the
measures referred good, bad or in
different. Moreover, when laws pul
lulate so muHitudinously in every
legislature, and thousands of private
societies make a business of manu
facturing unnecessary stntutPS, what
excuse is th-re for the Initiative? Ir
respective of how it works In par
ticular cases of states, it is a false
principle. This Is or was a repre

Polarine's double duty
and twin economies
Lubricating oil must do two things enable the
engine to deliver maximum power protect every
bearing and engaging part against wear.
The quick, complete combustion of fuel generates maximum
power. But it requires a gas-tight oil seal between piston
rings and cylinder walls to hold this power to its work.
And to get maximum work every bearing and engaging part
must offer the least possible resistance to movement - must
stay in perfect fit and alignment, cushioned against wear and
friction by a protective oil film.
Polarine meets every requirement. It maintains its body and
its lubricating qualities, practically unchanged, under all
weather and operating conditions. It assures full compression
and power gets the biggest mileage out of every gallon of
gasoline. It keeps down wear, prevents vibration, breakage .
and big overhauling and repair expense.
Polarine is made in four gradesr-light, medium heavy, heavy
and extra heavy but only one quality. Get the proper grade
for your'car next time you buy clean-burning Red Crown
Gasoline and you will start cutting down motoring costs.
