Is it a Military Deadlock? Tliourh it may bo but the lull before another mighty Htorm of battle, the present apparent deadlock in. hostilities Is significant at any rate. The scenes Koetn to be ohifting In the theater of war. if our reports are correct, the kalaer Is sending troops from Belgium to Germany, where HuMian encroachments are more menacing; his army Is stMdonly changed from the offensive to the defensive and he has called his leaders Into council to determine upon new plans and methods. While affording no basis for speculation as to relative gains and losses to date. It would naturally follow that the old plans had not proved entirely natlsfactory. No declnlve battle has yet been fought, but how long a crucial blow can be staved off Is open to question. The , mighty German, war machine Is evidently pre paring to concentrate for another attack. With the ponderous Russians presHlng down from the east and the allies fighting more doggedly on the west, the Oerman forces may he expected soon to renew operations In still more strenuous fashion. According to the latent Paris advices, the last attack niade with twelve German army corps failed of Its purpose and thus brought about the present deadlock which experts take to be but '"a prelude of a further effort to which all the forces that the' Germans ran raiso will be concentrated," Much as wc might wish for one finally decliiivo action, the chances are that It will tuke more than one victory or defeat to force ntgdtiatlons for a nottlement Put the "Dip" Factories Out of Business. Another effort is to be made at the coining leglsKitiire to' ecu re the enactment of an effec tivo measure for the abatement of tho couitnc fcelllng evil, which, aci-irdlng to all reporin. is growing instead of diminishing. Whcr. the sub ject was up before, The Bee gave Its hearty sup port to thti movement, and .e hope that It will tneot with better success this time. We are sup posed to have laws un our statuto books prohib iting the selling of noxious hablt-formlng drugs, but presumably they are not adequate, for in spite of numerous attempts to put the "dip" factories out of business they find legal tech nicalities through which they succeed In escap ing. If Nebraska wants to hold Its rank among progressive states, our law-makers will have to tackle this problem, and attempt a solution which, fortunately, Is not so hard, because other states have made good headway towards stop ping the cocaine traffic. N , Base Ball Solonj. For a few days Omaha will be the center of the base ball word In the entertainment of the National Association of Base Ball clubs, which has brought here magnates, managers and solons of the game from all quarters. The biggest men oi the diamond have come to thresh out their biggest problems. It may well be doubted if a bigger problem ever confrontod base ball than this crisis of today. It would be especially gratifying if the problem might be solved, or at least If a basis of solution might be reached, at this Oniaha convention, wh'ch would then be come truly epochal In the history of the game. A wise man said a long while ago, "money is the root of all evil." He did not say money, itself, waa evil, but he meant that its abuse wan evil. That Is the chief trouble with base ball today the' abuse of Its commercial side an absolutely essential side, at that. 1 Base ball as an Institution never amounted to much until It was put upon a sound business basis. But the mischief came in failing to realise that In that very citadel of power lurked a menace. Money In the form of huge gate receipts, money paid as fancy salaries to players, money paid for release of players there Is the root of the evil. The Invasion of the outlaws la but the occasion, not the cause, of all' this present woe. The Federal league may be the logic of events, but If the doctors of base ball bad prop erly diagnosed their case two or three years ago they would have found that tho remedy could not safely be delayed until now. The pa tient's condition now' demands prompt and drastic action. All friends of the game will hope that with clear-headed reason that action may come at this Omaha meeting. ' But, incidentally, whether it doea or not, per mit us to say that every delegate to this meet ing Is more than welcome to Omaha, as he' will ' realize1 fully before he leaves. . Tower of ' a Womgu'g Idea.' While waiting for the Christmas 8hlp to sail with Its burden of good cheer and comfort for the little folks of Europe, let us take time to re member that It was a woman who first thought' of this great enterprise. The woman is known to the public as Lillian Bell. She wrote her Idea to the editor of the Chicago Herald, Jamea Keeley, who Instantly recognised Ita far-reaching value and sponsored It. He In turn com mended It to The Bee and other leading news papers In cities all over the land, who adopted It and with their co-operation we are' about to send, In the name of the children of peaceful America, approximately 4,000,000 Christmas gifts, valued at IS.OOO.OPO to the 'children of war-devastated Europe. It Is not strange that it took a woman's mother heart to conceive such a plan, though, aa we see, all have mother bearta when it comes to such a mission of mercy and gladness. The prompt and generous response to the Invitation for gifts Is an Index too unerring to be misunder stood. This example of the brotherhood of man ought to make the coming Christmas the most Joyous for us all, even though our hearts are heavy with the awful sorrow of the war. Saved by the European War. The democrats retain control of congress, not because, but In aplte of, what they have done .for the country during the two years they have been In power. . It Is certain now, beyond a pos sibility of doubt, that bad the election taken jiUco ninety days sooner. It would have been a democratic rout with a political upheaval un paralleled In the history of the republic. All the' letters which the president could have written to- Floor Leader Underwood, extolllag the democratic record of leglblatlon, and all the commendatory messages he might have pub lished, boosting faithful supporters and plead ing for their ro-eUclion, would have been futile. The whcjly unexpected outbreak of the European ' war la alone! what saved the deruo rats from tho chastening rod that was In pickle for them, and gave new lease of life, to other wise discredited leadership. The Aatamw ( lenaap. OMAHA, Nov. I. To the Editor of The lue: The smoke of burning leaves and rubbish Is one of the unpleasant features of the passing autumn. Everybody la giad when the trash la burned and the smoke gone. Rut the nuisance Is a necessary one and can be minimized only by getting It off han.) as rapidly as poaslliln. The thing to do Is for all. hands to st busy at the annual job of cleaning up nature's debris. Street Commissioner Ryder announces that aa his 'funds for such work are low. It will help very much If the people w-lll do their part toward helping his department In this re spect. If every one will see that his own premises are put In good order there will be less for the city to do. The importance of getting the leaves and other trash out of the way before the anow falls need not be argued. It la simply a mat ter of experience. Modern sanitation, to say nothing of clvlo pride, demands a thorough and prompt houaecleanlng tn every city at this season. X.X. A Protest. OMAHA, Nov. . To the Editor of The Bee; In your (Saturday evening laaue ap pears tho following under a New York date: When ha goes to congress Meyer Lon don, soclallat rc-presentat.ve-e,leot, will' try to have a law passed by which no workiimn will l allowed to marry a working girl unless she hs n union card. Ixindon made this announcement at a mass meeting of the Wi.Ito Uoods Worl; ers' L'nion. Racialist! that I have met as a rule In sist that organised labor has uuuo all within' Hit power for the working class and that unions must adopt socialism In order to make further prosress. Instead of permitting socialism to stand or fall on its merits with members of organised labor, so-called socialists attempt to drive unionists Into their ranks by boring from within unions, hence the slowness to accept socialism Socialist loae no op portunity to discredit organised tabor, and the utterance of Meyer London Is really hut another effort to place union labor in a ridiculous light before the public. It would have been Jus; aa easy for Mr. London to have required the work ing girl to be a socialist before marrying a working man. but this would not have answered the aoctajlatlo purpose of dis crediting unions. If It were thoroughly Investigated, I am tilto sure that all the ridloulous and discreditable things dona In the name of unions emlnate from Just such a source ss the above-mentioned remark. C. Another rkrlatnme Fxtsid. v . NEW YORK, Nov. . To the Editor at The Bee: The co-operation or our fel low countrymen Is aaked to alleviate the sufferings of countless thousands of Bi'. -lans during the coming winter. It la a tremendous task. The dollar Christmas 1 fund, of which I am treasurer and which la barked by many well known pub'.lc men. la working with other organisations to avert starvation which threatens so many. There are many ways in whloh you can help to avert the agony of suffer ing which confronts helpless Belgians during the coming winter. You can aend a donation to our fund or you can apply to our secretary, Terey Bullen, B8 Broad way, N. Y.. for a Collecting card. He will be glad to Issue same to any re sponsible person enclosing personal ref erences. Churches, chapels, elubs and so-, ctetlea can assist by Writing for our col lecting list. . Entertainment committees and places of recreation may render great help by sending ua the proceeds of bene fit performances. In all - these ways friends everywhere are assisting nobly. All the money received will be cabled to Europe before December 30. HENRY CLEWS, Treasurer Dollar Christmas Fund, IS Broadway Street, New York. ' Haw War May Be Worth While. KAISERHOr RANCH. Blaine County, Nebraska, Nov. .ro tha Editor of Tho Bee: I am writing you to congratulate you upon tha editorial In The Bee rel ative to the European . war, , entitled, "The Survival of the Fittest." You say,' "Come what may, .why Is It not reasonable to believe that the ulti mate net result of this hideous human slaughter will be a new. Europe repre senting tha heat of the old as embodied In those Idoals which demand a higher abltrament than those of force." This is the broadest, sanest, moat sensible, and withal the most hopeful utterance I have read upon the terrible conflict now being waged by tha civilised countries of tha eastern world. Every war in which the human raeo has been engaged must be Justified or condemned by lts.net re-pAilts-not because thla or that race, Slav, or Greek, or Roman, or Teuton, or white, or black, or yellow baa triumphed or been vanquished. Much hs been spoken and w-rttten by tha atudent, aa well as tha untoarned, about the causa of tha war. Writers and thinkers have sought to lay the blame on the Oermans, the Russians, or the English first one. and then tha other, according to the point of View or bias of tha writer. May we not waive all these questions aside an ir relevant and immaterial T What good can bo accomplished by fixing tha blame, s'nee no penalty ean bo enforced, against tha guilty culprit, and there la no power In tha world to administer punishment? The human race ts not materially) Inter ested In who caused tha war, or who shall triumph In the end. except as the triumph shall have a bearing on tha final adjustment. Tho war la upon ua with all Ha awful tragedy and woo. There la no force 'n the world to stay It. But the end will come It may be soon It may be In the distant future but soma day these warring peoples will furl their flags and return to pursuits of peace. It the result shall be a European federation, wherein each European country ahall become a unit, governed ' and controlled, not by battalions or armored cruisers and dreadnaughta, but tha higher ideals by which the most cultured of the human race order and control their conduct In private lira, thla war shall be worth while all It will coat.

In the broadest sense, was a triumph for conservatism over radicalism tha .first one of any Importance since President McKlnley tit re-elected In V9. It had been In tlie air for a year or more. Finally, the conditions hecarhe 'Ideal for a reaction. In addition to the undoubted business de pression, due to a variety of causes, the great world war cast Its dark and chilling shadow upon all the forcea that make for tinsettlement and change. In times like these reform withers. The popular Instinct Is to "sit tight." conserve w lint is and make the best of what is established and tested by time. The world today has no desire for Innovation and experimenta tion, becaure a large part of It is In flames and the remaining part Is thinking of Ita fire ext'ngulshcrs. Mruns; Opposition. Indianapolis Rews (nd.) It would have been unfortunate had the administra tion party lost control of congress. But It Is ;! that the democrats must face a strong opposition in the next congress, not only for the democrats, but for all the people. For the next two years we may ex pect to see less extravagance, less party politics, and more conscientious attention to the splendid program which the administration outlined on entering office. As with the national government, so with the local, al though the situation In Marlon county is somewhat different. The rebuke la stinging, if the democratic party In Indiana possesses leadera of the necessary forethought and honesty It will at onee hasten to undo what it has done and to use such offices as It retains to build and not to destroy. Kutore of Republican Party. Chicago Herald (ind.) If the regular republican leaders go on the theory that their successes mean a demand for a, return to the old party of things, they will make a mistake and throw away a great opportunity. They will proba bly galvanize .the waulng progressive party into now life. They will provide it with a familiar Issue to which the country powerfully reacted In 1912 and to which it will always leact to a greater or less extent. On the other hand. If the republicans realize that the progressive revolt was based on a sentiment that haa come to stay, whether the party stays or not; If they interpret the results of the election aa a will ingness on the part of most of the progressives to come back to their old party provided that party does not go back to the old order of things; If they reso lutely keep the wisdom of compromise and concilia tion in view during the next two years, they may gj far toward restoring party unity and effectiveness In 11. i Barlal of tho Ball Mooae, Boston Transcript (rep.) Tha burial of the Bui) Moose party, however, does not dispose, as many people would like to think, of the Influence in politics of ita founder. Three course remain open to Colonel Roosevelt. He can run for president on the prohibition ticket In 1918, Join the democrats that year In their' effort to re-elect Mr. Wilson or return to the republican party and assist Its forward-looking rank and file In ridding the party of the leadership of Penrose and the few surviving reactionaries who by the landslide are again returned to power. Bitter as la the feeling among republicans against the colonel for his course during the last two or three years, there are many who refuse to let what he haa done since he left tha white house Im pair their admiration for his accomplishments during tue seven years of his presidency. If the colonel ts sincere In his belief that the "peace at any price" propaganda ts a curse to the country, ho will face the facts of yesterday's election' and lend a hand to the republicans in their effort to draft a new leader for 1914 who will voice the disapproval of "the plain people of the land" against the relegation of our navy to fourth or fifth place and the reduction of our standing army in tha United States to less than the number of New York's National Guard. The colonel la reading aright the lessons of Europe's war. Tha republicans propose to drive home these lessons to the country during, the. next two, years. ;, Here 1 a chance for the colonel to help. If he so desires, not aa a candidate for office, but as the patriotic American that he la. rtepablleaa BevlTal. , New York Post (Ind.). -Of deeper and more substantia Interest Is the mes sage of tha election on the future of the republican and the progressive parties If. Indeed, the latter may be said to have a future at all. Rut In that raeeeegt. too, there Is nothing In the least surprising. The two party system Is deeply rooted In our Institutions and habits, though It is not impossible for an historbi American party to be obliterated, a new one rising upon Ita rulna. This was the case when "the Irre prerslble conflict-' between slavery and freedom, be tween union and secession, took on such a character as to make the whig party an anachronism and o give rise to the republican. Tha progressives of 1912 hugged to their bosoms the Idea that they were as sisting at the birth of a new party, owing its origin to a moral impulse as profound as that which gave rise to tha republican party alxty years ago, and des tined to do to the republicans what the republicans had done to the whlgs. Nothing could exceed the contempt with which their leaders spoke of the or ganisation to which they had so long been attached, and which had almost continuously controlled the gov ernment of the country for halt a century, It was a mere corpse with the semblance ef life, and all that remained waa to get It decently burled. But here It is today, about aa strong as ever, whl'e the progres sives In all parts of the country ahow up aa a mere scattered remnant That they may cut somewhat more of a figure In the presidential election two years hence Is poasible, but that they will have to br reck oned with aa one of the major parties la practically out of tha question. . ; People and Events The next day It didn't snow. The heart of the weather maa throbs for the unfortunate occasionally. The esteemed Adeline Pattl. Idol of the musical world half a century ago. now at the age of TJ sung at g benefit concert In London recently and waa wildly cheered by 1,000 people. ' Some sad-eyed crooks pretending to be famished exiles from the war tone have unloaded on New York jewelers sample bricks of "platinum" which proved to be plain tin. Bogus brick artists need not go out side of the metropolis for business. General Carransa, General Villa and the rest of the Mexican warrlora, no matter how much they strug gle to regain the limelight, are hopelessly submerged by the warriors of Europe. Asia and Africa, and must be content with a remote seat In the back pages. Tha New York Legal Aid aoclety. one of the moat beneficial helps for the poor of the great city, haa handled during ita existence SO.S74 cases In and out of court at a coat of SSI7.9C, an average coat of 11.11 per case.

A New York moving picture film outfit, having picked "a red-headed and freckle-feeed boy" out ef a big bunch with hair of different colors, prompted the president of the company to set forth reaaoog for tha selection which should causa blondes and brunettes to alt up and sob awhile. "I have observed," says this president, "that a red-headed and freckle-fgeed boy Is never stuck oa himself and spends to time before the looking glaaa or trying to Impress girls '' p.l. aurora tops, what do you know about that?
