The Panama and Suez. 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. If this clause- In a treaty per
mits absolute British domination of
the Suez, It ought to abridge Ameri
can rlglits to, the control tof our own
property .oso .long aav we 'violate no
article of faith' we have made with

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

OMAHA, Dec. 10. 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". T know ono'
fine resilience building, one of 'the cost
liest In th'o. city", -which ls In grave clan
gor of -being, riilned as to Its' beauty lby
nearness to fi cfilmpey which pours -oUt
on 11 at 'regular 'intervals Its defacing
clouds. ' '
"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. Omaha they nro not at all, general
and pretty near Impossible. 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.

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.

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.

There are millions and millions, of dolls

And. millions of pictures , to paint;
There arc millions of knots of ribbon to

And mlllnns of loops to crochet;
And the days nnd hours aro galloping on
Right up to Christmas day.
i
There are infinite number of bundles to
wrap
And millions of greetings to write:
If we should attempt to count them all
The figures would climb out of sight;
And think of the millions or parcels to
tie
And the mltllons of stickers to stick 'em.
And think of the million.1 and billions
of stamns
That arc waiting for people to lick 'em.
There'll bo millions and millions of tapers

All over this great V. S.:
As many as there are twinkling stars
In the frosty heavens I guess,
And there'll be millions of stockings small
I AVhose hungry tops will be yawning;
And millions of Jobs for Santa UlaU3
