Let Us Hear Mr. Bryan
And Stand By the President
We need not got ail fussed up lie
cause William Jennings Bryan ha- re
signed from the secretaryship of state.
Mr. Pryan, being perhaps ?' remo>;
of men on two continents as .in advo
cate of world peace through arbitration.
HAD to resign when he found his views
unsupported by President Wilson and
the other member** of the cabinet.
He has best served the administra
tion by resigning, thereby removing him
self as an obstacle in the course the
president has elected to follow toward
He has best served himself, for as a
public officer he had, upon disapproval of
his suggestions, reached the point of im
potency in the furtherance of his univer
sal peace policy.
He has greatly pleased his enemies by
getting out, and at the same time has
more than pleased his personal followers.
They take this occasion to remind us
that the Nebraskan is still to l>e found
on the side of principle and conviction.
Asa private citizen, as a publisher and
Speaker, Mr. Bryan will be free to appeal
to the country for support for his peace
views, without embarrassment to the ad
ministration or interference in the diplo
matic process agreed upon, and is ab
solved from criticism by the rule trat
bestows upon every American citizen his
right to his own opinion.
It looks as if it is really a case like
that of the man whose mother-in-law
died and semeone asked him what the
complaint was.
“No complaint.” was the man'- reply;
“everybody is satisfied.”
The president and Mr. Bryan ere rot
separated in seeking peace, but only in
the method of seeking it, a.-- Mr. Wi»; < n
says in his letter accepting while regret
ting the secretary’s resignation.
And the one th : ng for all good Am-r
--icans to do at this time is to put a vie
their political and personal prejudice.-;
for Republicans and Progre>.-ive~ and
Democrrts, both Bryan and anii-Brvan.
to stand tr getner : nd support i’r -Hi<:;
Wilson in HIS way.
|fTi. i
The silver lining for us in wnatever it
is in the second n;>te to Germany whicn
Mr. Pryan looks upon m> a war clou*, i
the fret that we have for chief executive
a nr.r.n of the hour, a gr . v go and ;.nd
resourceful man. p s. _ sing all of the
ability and all of the proper symp.u ">•
that is needed in this hour of g; \
The United States of America mus* rv t
be drawn into war. It CANNOT b
drawn into war without the i -neri:«
of all the year* of labor that h .v* be n
devoted to building up a leadership for
universal peace and the common brot* r
hood of man.
We rest secure for faith in Woo irow
Wilson that we are not to be drawn
Into war. and that he is striving int lii
gently. conscientiously and diligently to
AVERT war.
W’illiam Jennings Bryan is to be wel
comed back among us as a private citi
ten, and let us wish him success in
spreading his gospel of peace.
Lat us hear him well and let him
traUt our hearts and sentiments so that
Uro may come to look with full under
standing upon the heathenism of what
)• going on In Europe, and rejoice that
yni art no part of 4t, and pray that
|M|fEAaooai* do part of it.
have persistently disdained to credit him
with his sacrifices upon the altar of
i principle.
The> w ill continue to do so in the in
-tance of this resignation from a high
phue and high honor, but will concede,
perhaps, that in taking the step he is
it least, consistent.
I Anyhow, We ( an Talk to
Our Babies Just As We Like
We seem to be having all of our priv
ileges taken away from us.
N<rm ogre, in the shape of a philan
thr ier ir reformer, comes forward and
insists that we cannot talk baby-talk to
ur babies.
Now, babies are the especial pr : ***.y
T‘ women, and women are proverbially
nterested in the tiny, n«>-accv>unt things

fection and love.
The Ivtbv come* m for f e biggest

much like the babv. the next.
She makes a cradle for the little one
and lines it with soft things, as the
I bird does its nest.
She sew < tinv clothes, with hope and
’ove in every stitch. and when she finally
hold* her babv in her arms words of
endearment a n d cooing and understand
