Canals. , England's formal protest to tho proposed Panama canal act, which its .foreign sccrotary, Sir Edward arey, has transmitted through Am bassador Bryco to Socrotary Knox, ls moro remarkable than convincing. It Is but 'air that Americans, beforo taking sides against their govern ment, in its control of tho Panama, should understand that tho clause in the Hay-Pauncofoto treaty on which Q mat Britain bases its objection is literally and verbatim the samo clause in the Constantinople agree ment of 188S on which Greut. Britain ivuiiun no sumurny lor dominating the Suoz canal. This Ib the-iclaUBe: The canal shall be free and open' to the vessels of commerce and of wur o't all, nations observing these rules on terms of entire equality, no that there stal be rjd discrimination against any such .nV- tion,, or Its citizens or subjects, In respect of the conditions or cliarrea of traffic or otherwise. Such conditions and charges of trafflo shall be Just and equitable. If, then, it Is unjust nnd Incon sistent with treaty rights for the United States to exempt from tolls Its coastwise ships in Panama, it is equally-unjust and' Inconsistent f&r Britain to dlscrlmjnata in favor of all Its vessels In tho Suoz, a thlpg it has continued to do since It will bo difficult for England to press its point, .against us, While' claiming tho right to which it ob jects for itself. Franco built tho Sue canal, but it fell into British hands thirty-seven years ago and since then has been as distinctly Brit ish as the Panama is American, though our government bought tho territory and built the canal at an initial cost qf more than. i 00,000,- 000.

HIRAM JOHNSON AT HOME The -Difference it Makes Whose Ox is Gored. Sacramento (Cat.) Union. In his recent rebounding battle-whoop to Meyer IJssncr of l.os Angeles, Gov ernor Johnson used the following lan guage; "It Is of little consequence now how the electoral vote of California is cast. It Is of grave consequence how the votes of citizens of the' stato of Cali fornia are counted. Votes legitimately cast by our men and women must be counted a cast, nnd votes legitimately cast must not be prevented from being counted either by the hired thug at the polls or the hypocritical pretense of a Judicial decision after the polls are closed." Htrange what u dlffenunco it wake whoso ox l.i gored. Here Is our wander ing governor insisting upon the right of American citizenship to make Its will known at the polls, and then have that will duly considered. Magnificent senti ment tills, and nono wilt say It nay. Rut It Is only two or.throw months Klnce the political party of which the governor Is a recognized leader debarred from th polls, except by the most roundabout and linpractlcul method, hundreds of thou sands of our citizens. Not only wire their votes not counted; they wore not even permitted practically to deposit them In the manner they dealrod. Was Hiram Johnson's clarion call to Meyer LJshner, or anybody else, heard in connection with this assault upon the right of suffrage? Not a call; 'not a whisper, not a gurgle.

To the Editor of The 1 Bees Tour readers who exert themselves t in tne interest of city health and clean liness must havo been gratified by the paragraph In'' Monday's Bco quoting somebody's views 'on tho beauties of coal smoke and Its desirability In the city. "Give us more smoke,!" says he. I am happy to note that' tho" person making this Intelligent utterance s n rormer councilman, not one .of those who, are, pop hnndllng the city's, prob lems. Possibly ho Is Interested 'In soft coal and fears some dcpreclatlve effect from this agitation. Certainly he Is not the owner of buildings .which are bring defaced by their dally black bath, nor of residence property, dwellings or apart ments, which are'dwlndllrig In value be cause of' the smoke nuisance :"nor Is h'e a dweller In a neighborhood -to be aban doned by reason of the same".

' ' "Smoke Is the sign of the' factory," ho snys. SmoUo certainly Is the sign of the Ill-conducted factory, -and of even other Ill-regulated building vwlth a smokestack. l.et this -past councilman go east and see how u'p-tb-dnto cities meet their smoks" brQblems.,'" In lloston and New York, ciean nousos, clean hanus, clean faces, clian" linen jro possible, and even gen eral in.

Clean lungs, any good doctor wilt tell you. aro likewise' 'impossible however ) necessary to health In an. atmosphere Ipadcd with tho sooty nnd gaseous products of com bustion unregulated. Rut health and cleanliness, to say nothing of well-kept' houses, seem quite secondary matters to this smoko-lovlng gentleman. "Omaha Is not congested enough," ho thinks, to warrant tho present campaign, In a very short tlmo Omaha's lungs will be- quite congested enough to warrant any extent of campaigning. Factories are not the chief offenders, 'either. Hospitals, strange to soy, aro conspicuous smoke breeders; hotels and other public buildings equally so. From my Upper windows In the morning 1 caij se a forest of chimney, ell faithfully 'working Uway at the sable pall they provide us ' 'dally, the court house, the Clarkson hospital, the Wise Memorial, frequently the new Christian Science church, with, numberless smaller but highly BffJclen't' helpers. Not a housekeeper in range of tbein but s heartily thankful to the people who are trying to put through the new smoke ordinance, and earnestly wishes "More power to their elbow!" "We need more factories." Why, very good. By nil means, let us have fac tories! let us have any number of them! Only, that's not the point at Issue. If wo want to attract desirable people here, to impress them well, to build up (he populotion and guard it against looking like a lot of chimney sweeps and having Its lungs smothered with soot and gas, lot us follow the example of the best cities we' know and adopt their wise and sanitary and also profitable methods In re smoke regulations. A HOU8KKBKPKR. nothrr Hrjolnter to ".Ved." OMAHA, Dec. D.-To the Editor of The Bee: In your Issue of December S ap peared a timely and commendable edi torial condemning the Indefensible con duct and utterances of Governor Blease of South Carolina, before he convention of governors at Itlehniond. A'o. in the same Issue," In striking contrast to your editorial, appears a much-to-be regretted communication, klgned "Ned." defending and commending Governor Blease'n words and attitude .and Justifying lynch law lessness, -The communication Is regrwttahle for many reasons, but. ohlefly for the un-, enviable position In which It places your correspondent and the light thrown upon his character. It Is more regrettable for his sake than for the damage his extrav- agent and maliciously false words can do the race Whom he ad wilfully mis represents and attempts so mercilessly to ,nx carl ate. His letter place him In the same oloau with. Governor Blease. This fart alone discredits his testimony, for rharauter and credibility are carefully weighed In irlvlng value to avidence, The governor ot r5outh- Carolina publicly de clared that, he doea not regard. tho sanc tity .of an oth,- !! has overtly pro claimed Immunity to murderers. Such piorul turpltudn weakens his testimony. And. unfortunately, "Ned," who dlscretly concealM his Identity, places himself In the bailie class with Governor Bleaje, whom ho admiringly culls, "an Intelligent, thinking southern statesman." God pity the south. If Bleu iv a. representative of either thu Intelligence, or statesman ship of that fair bectlon or, our common country! That li I not, his repudiation b the intelligent sober-mliulf'd, thought ui and best tlccs.'jt ef, the .southern women were practically disfranchised, so far as expressing their wilt was con cerned, by the action of his party. H was tho other ox that waa gored then, or so ho fancied, and so the governor was silent. In his Christian soldier Judgment It was of less consequence then "how the votes of citizens of the state of California arc counted" nnd cast. When tho Hull Moose citizens of a northwestern state were practically dis franchised in like manner, his noble fel low battler for the Lord, Theodoro Roose velt, emitted a shriek that was heard across tho continent. Hut he was voice less concerning the like outrage per petrated In California against Taft republicans- and so was Johnson. The amended' Bull Moose motto, "Thou shall not steal, except in thine own Interest," held good. Hlgh-souhdlrtg words, these of our gov ernor, right sonorous, and even eloquent, but the previous action of his party glve the lie to all his protestations of devout regard for tho right of suffrage. When Its deed and his silence concerning It are coneldored, his Ussner manifesto be comes as tinkling brass and sounding cymbal. It was a Boston paper that said: "For fcanorous flapdoodle, Governor Johnson of California Is easily chief In this campaign and Boston awards him the palm." Con sidering Its distance from California, the Boston paper sees with remarkable clearness. t peoplo attests. Of course, the riff-raff. rowdy and shallow-puted element will np pluud his utterances, admire his rowdyism and endorso his attitude But in his repre hensible conduct he has not commanded, nor can ho command, the admiration or respect of any true-hearted, htgh-mlndrd gentlemen, southern or other. I have the honor of tho acquaintance and esteem of snme southern centlemen nnd thev nrn gentlemen. As a member of tho race which "Ned" maligns, I resent his misrepresentations, Which are chargeable to maliciousness, Ignorance or Imbecility. His letter Is a splendid specimen of either stupendous, Invincible Ignorance or Irresponsible Im becility. In one paragraph ho deplores the miscarriage of Justice and In another Justifies the overthrow of courts. Theee "glaring Inconsistencies are only matched by hlu. wholeealo indictment of the Afro American as a lustful, bestial race, menacing the home ot every- white man In the south. Ho says, waxing eloquent in falsehood, If falsehood can ever be eloquent: "Despite the earnest tcaohlngs ot tho white man; the brute pas sion and sonsuallty inherent to the black man has never been quelled. The In 'stlnct remains under his veneer of Intel ligence, amiability and learning. The viper lies In 'hjs. bosom, always ready to strike, ever alert." ( One or two observations only: Thous ands of the best families In the south entrust thcln households to the care of negro mule servants, feel perfectly safe In so doing and rare Indeed are the cases where such confidence has been In any way abused. Men "In full knowledge ot tho peril of the beast which threatens the homo, tho wife and the daughters of every white man," If what "Ned" says be true, would hardly run such risks with their families. "Desplto the earnest teachings of the whlto man." This would be humorous if it were not so pathetically tragic In what It Implies. There are upwards of 5.000,000 mulattoes, quadroons , and octo roons among the native1 born population of tho south. A large proportion of these, born out of wedlock, are the children of white fathers and negro mothers. Men teach more by example than by precept. There Is a class of men In the south, as elsewhere, with white skins, ' but black hearts, who need to learn respect for womanhood, Irrespective of race or color. England today Is fighting the white slave traffic. 9o Is the United States. WHo are the men engaged In this nefarious traffic? That there are degenerate and lustful men among negroes Is true and that there are bcstlp.1 and lustful men among the whites Is equally true. Womanhood Is no more In danger from the, black, man than from the white man( the terrible - so called and misnamed "social evil" being witness to the truth of what I say. What Is needed today Is the teaching every where of a higher chivalry and respect for womanhood as womanhood, Irre spective of race, condition or environ ment. Instead of maligning and misrepresent ing any class of people, we need to unite all the moral and religious forces of. this country to fight for the enforcement of taw, the eradication of Ignorance, crime, evil, Injustice and Inhumanity that there be no room found among us for vlclous ne.Es of life. This can never come where lawlessness reigns. JOHN ALBERT WILLIAMS. Xnmlnsr the- Srw Hotel. OMAHA, Dee. 9. To the Editor of Th Bee: The greatest advantage to Omaha In getting a new mllllon'-dollar hotel will be from an advertising standpoint, and In naming the hotel we should select that name that will advortit our city tha most and not merely try to compliment some one, be he dead or alive. Great advertisers attach to a name such Im portance that thoy copyright and capi talize it In large sums. The fact that we are building such a hotel needs to be advertised In the ropers everywhere. The name Omaha given to a hotel located in Omaha will not advertise th city, neither would the name Nebraska, and the, name of Douglas, would not appeal to the merchants doing business on other streets. 1 have (n mind a nam that If selected that fact alone will cause mention ot our new million-dollar hotel to be pub lished all over the union. It Is the name ot a citizen of our state, who is most favorably known In every civilized coun try. A name that has advertised Ne braska more than $10,000,000 would have accomplished In advertising In the news papers. This name is Nebraska's most valuable asset from on advertising atand point, and will cause every one passing through Omaha on ths trains to try for a glimpse of the hotel, as well a name that wilt attract patronage to the hotel. 1 need not mention "the name, It la a house hold word In every home.
