Time to Take a New Tune.
Hot weather is oppressive,, sometimes almost
unbearable, but it is inevitable.- More than 'that,
it is beneficent. Without heat the great food crops
could not be raised. We know it is irritating to
be told this, but jrruinblincr about the weather
will not alleviate any of its discomforts. Quit
singing "the blues,"
Business is not as brisk as it was a year ago,
or two years ago, and a lot of men are out of
M-ork. Yet this is a temporary condition, and will
not be permanent. However, business is not so
rotten bad as it might be. During the month
of June 3,053,307 revenue cars of freight "were
loaded in the. United States, an average of 763,
327 for each of the four weeks reported, or 122,
221 a day. Railroad, earnings;' for May showed
, a big increase. This is the best possible proof
that some business is, moving not the swift,
overwhelming tide that' gushed over all during
the years of the war; but a steady stream of such
magnitude at disputes the assertion that the
present depression in business is the worst ever
known. '.,..'
A big crop.of wheat is assured, most of it al-
ready harvested and some sent to market. This
crop was produced; at a 'cost much below that of
last year, and will yield the farmer some return
for his labor. Another bumper corn crop is well
on the way, far ahead of the season in its growth.
Prices for' meat animals are such as mean some
profit at present. Many rifts are appearing , in
the clouds that have Hung; oyef the agricultural
industry and th' farmed imiles now and then
when contemplating tht fuiure.r?,
Prices on staples, are descending to , lower
levels, not pre-war, 'fbrthat 'stage, may never"
be reached again, ;;?but far below ! the peaks at
tained last year. All of these things are indic
ative of .approaching resumption of activity,
the beginning of a new era of production. One
-j doe? not need to be imprudently optimistic to.
note encouragement in , surface signs. It is easy
and cheap to predict better days, when the
country is at the. nadir of a slump, but it takes
no anore of moral courage to sing a song of
hopt)',' than, it does to swell the moaning chorus
of despair. ,
"Defeatists" should be sent to the rear now.
Lethal! hands take a new grip on things, change
the ttme and quit singing "the blues." We are
bound to have a revival, and there is plenty of
reason for thinking it is not far ahead. ' At any
rate, we are nowhere near as badly off as we
might be and surely in no such predicament as
some folks think.
'Dear Credit and Omaha.
One of the unpleasant features of the re
construction period is that credit has been set
. so high that it is difficult for anybody to secure
funds, let alone municipalities, such as Omaha.
Here we find a big plan for public improvement
suddenly checked for lack of fundspnot for
the reason that the city's solvency is questioned,
nor that the work is not necessary, but just be
cause the bond issue proposed is not sufficiently
"attractive.' A 5 1-2 per cent, non-taxable city
bond, would have been snapped up by investors
as a rare treasure once, and to casual citi-
zea it looks, like a good thing right now, but
with public utility 'tissues going around 8 and
some as high as 10 per cent, buyers disdain for
the moment the lower rate but better secured
Omaha paper, s : N "
This conditidn will not be permanent A
New York firm already is advertising that' the
return to the 6 per cent basis is at hand, while
' another advises its clients to buy municipal is
sues at 5 per cent. That Omaha will outlive
the present stringency, which amounts to little
less than a hold-up, is very certain.
The plan of selling the issue over the coun
ter, ought to bring' in enough money to make
sure . that the work of improving the streets
.can be carried on. Such expenditure of funds
only serves to make" more certain the security,
to 'improve the credit on which the issue rests.
Holders of money,' bond dealers, bankers and
the like, may embarrass the publicfor a time,
but in the end the work will be done and the,
community will noi-haye paid an unreasonable
interest rate for its borrowed funds, especially
when the law fixes the limit to which the city
,, can go.-.-
Should Oftce-Holders Vote?
A suggestion that all persons on the public
payroll should be barred from voting is made
by a farm paper. "In the interest of good gov
ernment and to prevent the . office-holding class
from perpetuating its power by controlling the
casting ( vote at elections," the argument runs,
"all people, from the president down, who are
drawing national, municipal or state salaries,
should lose their votes while in office. In other
words, public servants should not be allowed
to become; public masters. That is the ten
dency today."
The total number of employes in the execu
tive civi service of the United States last year
was approximately 640,000. There are a great
many other job holders beside this in. the feder
al service and when to this is added the army
of state employes and those on county and
municipal payrolls, it will be evident that a
considerable per cent of the total population, is
engage in the. business, el government in one
way or another. There is no doubt that the list
of officeholders has been greatly expanded, but a
considerable portion of this is due to public in-.
sistence on additional governmental machinery.
We can not have a host of boards, bureaus and
commissions to do things for us that we should
do for ourselves and not engage men to operate
them. These still remain citizens and it is doubtful
whether temporarily depriving them of the right
of suffrage would tend to diminish their num
bers, nor would there be any way to prevent a
political machine being built up, as now, from
their friends.. . ' ,
Judge .Wray's "Program."
' Arthur G.vWray, who is expected to be, the
candidate of .the Nonpartisan league, for gov
ernor of Nebraska next year, proposes a pro-
gram of laws to be initiated that is interesting.,
The judge expects to run with, the republican
label, but that he may be assured of the nom
ination he wants' matters fixed so that any mem
ber' of the league, no 'matter what his party
affiliations otherwise, may aid in nominating the
republican candidate. ' j .
No objection can possibly be urged against
Judge Wray's ambition j he is freely entitled to
aspire;, for any;, office in the gift of the people.
In fact, be has aspired to a great many of them
already.! Last year he was a candidate for gov
ernor on the farmer-labor ticket. If he wants
to run as, a republican next year, he has that
privilege, but he ought to permit himself to be
passed upon by republicans only It is hardly
fair to ask the democrats or Townlcyites to.
name the candidte lor another party. . "
One of ( the laws Judge Wray proposes to
initiate provides that:
The legislature must be prohibited from
any further attempt to repeal the state-wide,
primary law. The party circle must be re-
moved from the ballot; and the legislature!'
should be forever prohibited from passing a
law requiring a voter to register his party,,
affiliation. s '
Forever is a long time.,. Suppose the. law
makers of 1S?1 had passed a law that would;
have bound the state forever to a political pro
gram as then laid down, what would the unlift
ers of today be saying as to the injustice of
such a condition ? Or, does Judge Wray admit-
that his plan is the climax, the apex, tha seek
no-further of political science, and that any
chjjige posterity may want to make will, be a
step backward, and -from which he now pro
poses to interbose his sapience and save them
from themselves? We understand his objec
tion to party labels, for the present law makes
it difficult for a democratic leaguer to "ote at
the republican primary. ' It also works the other
The Nonpartisan league is nonpartisan to
this extent: It does not care what party label
it wears, if it can get its candidates into office.
W. hy does it not come out into the open, as
did the Farmers' Alliance or the people's in
dependent party (the populists), or the farmer-
labor party? Judge Wray's plan for breaking
down party lines is well calculated to forward
his chance if Tie cari get away with the" goods.
Tariff and the Merchant Marine.
A southern democrat in congress asks ' if
the republican majority is moving to kill the
American merchant marine again. He assumes
that under the proposed tariff bill there will be
no importation at all, consequently the ships
flying our country's flag will have cargo only
one way. He, ana those "wno are mwaea iikc
him, will take comfort if they only study the
question a little closer. Chairman rordney,
when reporting the. bill for the committee, esti
mated that it will produce $700,000,000 in revr
enue; this contemplates the importation of two
billion dollars' worth . of. dutiable;, goods, while
the free list is ample. Under such circumstances
the cargo-carriers that make ' up the revived,
American merchant marine will find 'consider
able freight for the return voyage. It will not,
as under the democratic free trade idea, be at
the expense of home industry. . Foreign manu
facturers will compete with Americans in the
United States on the basis of American cost of
production. Import duties are to;.be levied on
the basis of American vajuatidn,' and all advan
tage secured for the domestic product. Our
democratic bethren may be assured that, what
ever befalls the new merchant marine, it will
not be employed to bring goods from, abroad
to break down the home factories. , , , .
Between Man and Man.
Eamonn de Valera, on his way to meet David
Lloyd George, smilingly said the outlook for
peace in Ireland was the brightest in history.
We may believe this, if the conference is carried
on in the spirit m which it has started. When
the premier of England and the acknowledged
head of the Sinn Fein movement: meet alone,
they are apt to lay aside for the moment the fact
that one is executive head of a great govern-;
nient and the other the accredited representative
of a powerful faction opposing that government,
and become for the time just men earnestly seek
ing a way out of a great difficulty. Each is look
ing for an approach, and both may find it easier
than appears on the surface. Concessions will
have to be made on both sides, but these will be
reached more readily -because the bargain can
be struck without the influence of advisers who
are not responsible. When James Craig comes
into the consultation chamber, he ought to find
the atmosphere considerably cleared because
Lloyd George and de Valera have talked it over,
and so opened a way to a settlement in Ireland.'
And if only the "Battle of theBoyne" can ht
put into, the background, and eyes turned to
the future instead of the past, a happy outcome
will follow.
George Ade, now that he has been men
tioned as the recipient of four cases of bootleg

1 A Financial Sermon'
Why Credit It Dear, Taxes
High and Business Upset
(From the New York Times.)
At the budget reform meeting President
Harding preached a sermon on public financu o
broader application than the eloquence of Bud
get Director Dawes. "There is not a menac
in the world today like that of growing public
indebtedness and mounting public expenditures
. . . There has seemingly grown up an im
pression that public treasuries are inexhaustible,
and a conviction that no efficiency and. no econ
omy are ever thought of in public expenses
That strikes at the root of the heresies which
have given the world a delusion of wealth and
prosperity, while all the time it has been squan
dering capital as though that could go on for
evew Labor is not able to see why the gov
ernment can not keep wages up permanently
mark them up from tax money. Social reform
ers pile duties on the government which are not
governmental, and marvel that taxpayers are
not so grateful as the beneficiaries of what they
do not pay for. Many such measures are pressed
by those who ought to know better than the
multitudes who think that the government has
fundsof its own, and does not merely spend the
money of one man for the benefit of another
man. No government governs in a manner
above criticism, although regulation of conduct
is simplicity itself compared "with the many an
tics of social reform, benevolence and business
heaped on government already overtaxed in its
appropriate functions.
Jt leads too 4 far afield to consider this text
throughout tne world. Jhe figures are as
tronomical and baffling in their intricacies
Merely in passing, it may be remarked that the
British government paid a subsidy of $50,000,000,
a bounty to miners who had reduced their out
put as their, wages were raised, and who had
caused their country untold loss, lhere is no
humanity, but a parody on government efficiency
and economy, in procedure which causes the
governments of Europe to consume, in taxes
from 20 to 40 per cent of the national income.
Normally, national savings accumulate 'at the
rate of 10 to 16 per cent of national income
Now national expenditures take from taxpayers
and spend on others several times the sum which
should increase the cafjital savings, and special
discrimination is shown against those whose ot
fense is that they earn and save most. There
can be no real prosperity anywher until there
ts budget reform everywhere. We are inter
ested in the foreign reform budget almost as
much as in our own. We can, not sell abroad
if foreign governments take in taxes the funds
Which would do more good if left in the chan
nels of trade.
Taking a home view of the same subject, it
is to be remarked that all records are eclipsed
by the flood of public bonds, whose interest it
at a rate proportioning the Benefit of coupon
clippers to the burden on taxpayers. : For the
first five months of this year $366,667,901 of
public bonds were issued. . During the same
months trade was declining, and industrial capi
tal issues were smaller than last year by $455,-
003,000. It has been long since railways have
enjoyed, borrowing credit. . The great losses of
raSway credit came earlier. There are on the
horizon billions of road bonds and soldiers'
bonus bonds and public improvement bonds of
all degrees of merit, but all with the demerit of
swelling taxes and starving trade.
It is contrary to the interest of rent-oaycrs
that) public buildings should be etected at.a cost
in twenty-five northeastern states of $1,694,384,
600 compared with $739,548,000 for all business,
industrial and residential buildings. It is -contrary
to the interest of all using. credit that pub
lic credit should absorb lunds at interest rates
which business can not pay, and should throw
tax exemption into the unequal scale. How
can farmers expect to borrow cheaply when
there are twenty billions of federal bonds tax
exempt m varying degrees, and twenty billions
6f other bonds totally .exempt from federal tax
ation? Here is the explanation of the shrinking
movement of shares in June and the swelling
total of bonds. . In the last three years the
Mock Exchange business in bonds has totaled
over five billionvlor the first half of the years;
In no other half year has the bond business to
taled a billion, rarely a half billion.- The current
bond business is", several ? times", the normal
volume, and the over-counter.- business is an
abnormal addition.. Here is the explanation why
credit is dear, taxes' high. 'Here is a menace
touthis nation as well as to other nations. The
president's words are fit and timely.
Women's Independente
He .must have been a sour misanthrope who,
in describing the changed conditions of England
in a recent letter to the New York Times, said
that "the English women have gained their in
dependence and seem to take a delight in push
ing, the men off the sidewalk when they are all
rushing for a motor bus or trying to enter trains
in the tube railways." The plain intention is
to attribute such feminine behavior to the fact
that, after a long struggle by Mrs. Pankhurst
and others, the women have gained the right
to vote. The same correspondent implies that
they smoke cigarets in public -places, wear
bobbed hair and short skirts, because they have
gained their "independence "
We should hesitate to attribute such tenden
cies in feminine behavior to' the mere fact that
.woman now has the vote, and wants everybody
to understand it. But even were it so, have not
women the right to make their own use of their
independence? Isn't independence within a short
skirt, with bobbed hair and a cigaret better than
slavery without them? Woman suffragists from
Miss Anthony down to Alice Paul must have
thought so or they would not have been so
earnest and persistent about it. We see no rea
son why men should become so misanthropic
because women have gained equal rights. Men
must take feminine independence as they find it,
and if the women push them off the sidewalk to
show5 their equality, the men, instead- of
grumbling about it, should climb back and push

Copyrlrht, 1921, by Dr. W. A. Evan.
Dr. S. TV. 'Welch, health officer
of Alabama, made the statement
about April 1: "If I can And the
money to continue the work now
being done against venereal disease
in this state two years from now
syphilis and gonorrhea will be a
rare in Alabama as smallpox now Is."
While smallpox was then fairly
prevalent, It is certain that venereal
disease was 1,000 times as much so.
I could not see how bo ntupendoua
a task- was to be accomplished In
two years, yet I was bound to ad
mire Dr. Welch's ambition and de
termination. He had several reasons
for his optimism. One was the high
venereal disease rate or ,the men
examined in the draft and the low
rate of the soldiers who had been
In the army. The first figure
showed how great Is the prevalence
or venereal disease among young
men, where nothing in the way of
control is done. The second showed
how- easy it is to bring the trouble
under control.
Upon entrance to the army ne
groes had a venereal disease rate
that was seven times that of whites.
After being in the army six months
the rate among negro troops wai
no higher than- that among white
troops. Much of the venereal dis
ease In Alabama is amour negroes.
The Alabama plan.-embraces the
usual educational work, by means
of leaflets, bulletins, letters nd
moving pictures. The dtseases are
reportable. There are local clinics
for the free treatment of the in
fected. ' There are 11 of these free
clinics supported . In part by the
rtste and in. part by local funds.
This is a considerable number for a
small state.
The outstanding features of their
method Is the co-operative clinic for
the treatment of those who can and
should pay something but who can
not pay much. The co-operative
clinio method ta as follows: .... "A
local physician is furnished a speci
fied equipment for treating ve
nereal disease, . is -supplied with
standard medicines, and commands'
the state laboratory service.- For
this " and the privilege.' of being
designated a" co-operator- he oon

consist of Wasserman . and - other

other remedies as are indicated for

are said to be the right number;
