The prospect of Villa "standing by the presi dent" lends a dash of gayety to the situation. Omaha's gain irt bank clearings is a fair index of what the city is doing in' other directions.' Whatever else the legislators may do, they are showing good judgment in the bills they are killing. The farm loan bank will give out some jobs before it makes any loans. Who wants the places!1 Speak up. ' Another million-Jollir building wilt be wel comed, but we can spare the application of fire for clearing the lot. It's a cinch that wild horse deal will not look half so tempting to a person after serving a term in prison and paying a $10,000 fine. It is gathered from his remarks "Gumshoe Bill" Stone dislikes the rude caresses of the road roller. Evidently it disturbs the moss. . The German chancellor refers to the "unpar alleled bravery" of the submarine crews. Pas sengers on the Laconia can testify on this point. Colonel Bryan's lucid expositions of dry rot falls painfully short of the volume of silver moon shine dispensed some twenty-one years ago. Time tells. 1 An extra session 01 congress commenaa risen for one epochal reason. The inauguration of the "lady from Montana" justifies the worry and th expense. No half-way station any longer between "Wet" and "Dry." The new federal law makes it a through ticket every time from point of departure to destination. f With assurance given to the public that the ,car shortage situation has been completely re lieved in the west, food price boosters will have to find another excuse. Burglars fat Omaha and Brooklyn passed up the money boxes and made off with prize pack ages of potatoes, bacon, eggs and onions.

Not a Penny for Blackmail St. Leu Is Glaba-Dtiacrat After Colombia lost Panama it offered to take $8,000,000 for all its rights to the canal cone and later reduced the price to $5,000,000. But con gress, being advised of all the facts, refused to pay a cent. During this administration we have been asked to pay $25,000,000 and make an ex pression of regret that means an admission of wrongdoing, if it means anything. The price has been reduced to $15,000,000, but any payment would represent a yielding to blackmail. Every concrete argument about the alleged "wrong to wivKiui. , iwku vii laiscuwu. oiaicmcma about John Hay have been forged, in the face of his public and private utterances over his own signature. Hay's conscience was clear. He signed the Panama agreement with ink from Abraham Lincoln's inkstand, as he wrote his daughter at the- time. In numerous letters he declared that Roosevelt could not have done any thing except what he did. The order to protect both ends of the railway when the revolution began was th extent of American "aid." But the same order had been given four times before during the- same admin istration. There had been fifty-three Panama revolutions in fifty-seven year. The only reason the last was such a success was that the unani mous action of the Colombian congress in re pudiating a treaty the Colombian government had urged upon as and was more than fair to Colom bia had it made all residents in Panama favor independence.. They saw the dream of a canal, which meant so much to them, fading, with pros pect that the Nicaragua route would be chosen. The uprising was unanimous. Even the Colom bian soldiers joined in it The only fatalities were accidental, a Chinaman and. a dog being killed. We paid Panama the same amount we were to have paid Colombia. We did not profit finan cially by the revolution. The project itself was for the benefit of the world, all ships being treated alike. Our only act consisted in prevent ing an indefinite duration of bloodshed and de vastation through the whole extent of the isth mus as John Hay put it in a letter to Prof. George P. Fisher on January 20, 1904. Colombia lost Panama because of the greed and perfidy of its -Wcial representatives and should bear the loss. Future Relations with Germany. The Chicago Tribune carefully analyzes the speech of Chancellor von Bethmann-Hollweg to the Reichstag and finds it a solemn warning to the United States. No longer is there any question of the unbrage of Germany at the course pur sued by this country. We are now dealing with facts and not sentiment. Fine words nor spe cious arguments no longer will avail to mollify the German government, whose resentment is sol idly founded on the belief -that we have aided its foes. The conclusion is tiiat we may be cer tain that in years to come the United States will have to reckon with Germany as an offended and uncompromising rival. The possibilities con tained in this should be fully realized by all Americans. It is more than ever an argument for preparation for national self-defense. Having chosen our path, it devolves on us to be ready for what may be encountered on the way. Such a Foolish Feud. What an exhibition of foolishness we are hav ing in the court house, where certain county com missioners have "locked horns" with the sheriff, with nobody hurt but the public! Shutting off the elevator power and making people climb the stairs to transact business gets no one anywhere and the pretense that this controversy turns on the sheriff's bills for feeding prisoner i alto gether too flimsy. In view of its uncompromising fight on that abuse, The Bee will not be accused of defending any jail-feeding graft. However, the situation is not now to be remedied by the county board, but by repealing the law enacted for the special benefit of the last democratic sheriff by a legislature in party sympathy with him fixing an exact price. This price was then and is still exorbitant, though less so in these day of high living cost. Be that as it may, the present sheriff ha no option but to furnish meal to prisoner at the rate the law prescribes. We are thoroughly convinced the whole system is wrong and that, as jail purveyor, the sheriff should act merely a agent for the county with only reimbursement for such actual outlay on the same plan as governs other public institutions. But the right or wrong of the jail-feeding law, railroaded through the legislature two years ago, will not justify the peculiar performances being pulled off in the court house. "Under Which King?" Nebraska's fiftieth birthday was celebrated in Washington by citizens domiciled there in be fiting manner, even to the staging of a section of the interminable dispute between the demo cratic "leaders" of the Antelope state. Colonel Bryan and Governor Metcalfe locked horns on the peace question and enlivened the proceedings by expression of diametrically opposite views, each claiming to speak for the home folks. Which really represents Nebraska sentiment? The prob ability is that neither does. The people of this state are patiently waiting, sincerely hoping that war may be averted, but not deluding themselves with vain promise. Like other true Americans, Nebraskan know the price of liberty and are willing to pay it. The incident at Washington indicate how far the docent of local democracy are from agreeing on anything of real impor tance. Followers of the donkey emblem here about are (till confronted with the question, "Under which king?" Barring British "Slacker." Public approval will follow the determination of Governor Whitman of New York to debar from exhibition in hi state a prize fighter who notoriously has evaded military service in his own country. Seldom is a case presented in which action concerned with the affairs of prize fight ing, other than to actually prohibit the practice, may be said to have the support of good morals and sound ethic, but this has. That the fighter in question, a British subject of military age, fled from his own country to escape military serv ice and came to America, lured by prospects of lavish returns for his skill a a boxer, is ad mitted. One of the excuse always relied on by the advocates of prize fighting 1 that boxing is the "manly art of self-defense," but here we have an example that well answers that. Instead of developing a sense of honor it ha apparently fostered only the cupidity of this youth and by reason of his peculiarly irresponsible conduct he has added, if possible, to the obloquy already at tached to the proscribed sport. , Vindication. The hog editor of our esteemed hyphenated contemporary scoffed recently at a statement made by The Bee, relative to th progress of the pig a a producer and reproducer of it kind. The limited experience or Information of the eager critic did not comprehend the capabilitiea of the modern pig, so he challenged the accuracy of the statement that a good brood sow would bring forth a many a twenty of her young at a time. Undoubtedly, he had in mind the hazel- splitter or razorback hog, the type with which he is the more familiar, but it was the high-class modern machine for making bacon out of corn The Bee referred to. At any rate, the answer to our critic comes from the state farm at Kearney, where twenty-one pink-nosed bit of potential pork product came together to greet a (ingle tow a mother. This is ample vindication. We would suggest that the pig editor referred to get out of his luxurious quarters long enough to see how far the world has advanced since he was a farmer boy. ' Subscriptions to federal loan bank stock range from $41,725 in Omaha to $410 at Colum bia, S. C Omaha's rank at the head of the twelve district cities is conspicuous by reason of the meager sum subscribed by localities especially vociferous for land bank honor. Never another peep in reinforcement of that labored charge that the Allies were unwilling to accept "peace without victory" only because it would compel them to forego the profit, at so much an acre, on a huge international land grab! What about it? The mayor of Chicago offers a ready Solution of the rising cost of living. Let people buy only what they can afford to ftav for. The rest la . Still the federal government propose to squander uu,uuu seeking a solution not half as good. Thirteen state bank charters iisued by the banking board in one day constitute a delicate tribute to the speed efficiency of that supreme court deciuon. Rev. C. N. Dawson "My First Sermon" "At the dote my big friend said, 'Well, you vid a migh y tight belter than I thought you could.' " Food prices in Chicago are reported to be on the decline. Speed the good work. Somebody ought to notify the lioj buyers. It was back in Kankakee county, Illinois. Soon after receiving my quarterly conference, or local preacher's license, I was informed by my pastor at the close of his Sunday morning serv ice, that he would not be able to fill his evening appointment on account of sickness in his family, and that I must preach in his stead at the Bloom school house, where I had previously wrought in the capacity of a country school teacher. No word of mine could convince him that I was wholly unprepared for such sudden action and that it would be utterly impossible for me to comply with his requirement He said, "I will end them word that you preach to them this evening." The "word" must have traveled on the wings of the wind. The whole country side turned out to hear the boy preacher. The house was crowded to the limit, and only two of all that number were church members. When I arrived, I found Ad Mann (with whom I had boarded while teaching in the community) a big rough-and-ready sort of chap, entertaining the crowd in the capacity of "the preacher." Somewhat confused I took a seat about half way back toward the door and waited further de velopments. After enjoying my confusion for a time, he said, "Well, I'll give way to you, and if you are going to do anything, you'd better get at it." I took him at hi word and proceeded to the pulpit and opened the meeting in due form. After the singing and prayer, I announced my text, but was unable to find it I remembered the words, but could not locate them. Fortunately I had chosen a text that covered everything between hell and heaven and extended to the last man of a lost race. "And as Moses lifted up the ser pent in the wilderness, even so mutt the Son of Man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." My embarrassment abated in some measure and I had reasonable liberty. No preacher ever had closer attention. The audience was made up of my friends and they wanted me to succeed. At the close of the sermon (if it could be called a sermon) my big friend, Mr. Mann, was the first to clasp my hand, saying, "Well, you did a mighty sight better than I thought you could." And really, I do think it was the poorest ser mon I ever preached. Pastor Dietz Methodist Episcopal Church. (Naal "My First Sanaa," by Rav. Frederick E. Pamp.) Slamming the Stable Door Mtanaapalla Jauraal Under the pressure of the present emergency, the senate has passed the administration's espion age bill, imposing severe penalties on foreign spies who violate our neutrality or undermine our national defenses. Senator Cummins asserts that there are no less than 100,000 of these secret agents now oper ating in this country. The Department of Jus tice long ago found itself unable to cope with such offenses for lack of laws with teeth in them. It drew up fourteen different measures designed to overcome its difficulties. But congress paid little attention to the matter, though news dispatches brought serious offenses to light daily. It required the break with Ger many to jolt the senate into action, and the house has yet to consider the bill in which the fourteen Department of Justice bills were consolidated. Among the provisions of the bill passed by the senate is one that make it an offense pun ishable with two years' imprisonment for any per son in charge or a private, foreign or domestic ship to destroy or injure it or to permit it to be used as a place of resort by conspirators against the United States or its treaties or obligations. If congress had passed such a measure, when the need of it first became apparent the disabling of the machinery of ninety-one German merchant men interned in our ports could have been pre vented. When the house has passed the present bill, and the president hae signed it, the slam of the stable door after the horse has been stolen will once more reverberate through the land. We aeem to be degenerating into an eleventh hour country. We are worse than the foolish virgin of the parable. We put off till tomorrow the things we should do today. The violations of our neutrality since the war began have been per sistent and notorious. Dumba and Boy-ed and Papen were sent home. Recently Consul General Bopp and his accomplices have been convicted. But most of the offenders have been "within the law," and, though Washington knew pretty well what they , were up to, effective action was im possible. Even now it is touch and go whether the house gets around to take action before it is over taken by March 4. People and Events Investigation of the remains of the private bank of Robert L. Pitte & Son, Chicago, ahow that fraudulent transactions have been going on for thirty years, and depositor did not get wise until the bank went under. Absence of state supervision made shady work a quiet easy, inside job. , i "Father Pete" Drexelius of Detroit founder of the esteemed "Social Order of the Moose," is dead at 54. Mr. Drexelius was a lodge "jiner" of distinction long before he gave the Order of the Moose habitation and a name. Fatherhood of a new order earned for him the highest laurels of lodgecraft. A Washington judge consulted by a teacher regarding unruly school boys was advised that the rawhide was the proper instrument of correc tion and advised her to try it on. A-moment later his honor, on being shown a pair of husky 18-year-old kids, revised hi advice ana suggested suspended sentence on good behavior. Discre tion bespeaketh judicial wisdom. Life in the old Kentucky home has its lights and shades as elsewhere. Thus the Courier Journal ruminates: "When a plain American daddy who has made his pile gets to be middle aged and his hair and his daughter are coming out about the same time, he finds the cor-.ing out of his hair cause the family much less worry, in addition to being unattem'H by expense." A wandering Croesus from New York blew into a Pittsburgh hotel bar and flipped a $10,000 bill in payment of a noon appetizer. The dazed barkeep looked from bill to man and concluded the local asylum had lost a member. But things looked different when Croesus flashed nine more bills of the same altitude. "It's one on the house," said the boss as Croesus was led toward a safety vault Captain George Steunenberg, the poet of the regular army, has retired from the service be cause of failing heaUU and will cv'tivate the muse as a private tizen.

A touch of postmortem humor enlivens the will of Randolph McMullen, a wealthy farmer of Tyrone township, Hollidaysburg, Pa. It pro vides for the distribution of an estate of $100,000 among the poor of three counties under the super vision of a Catholic priest, a Protestant clergy man and a Jewish rabbi. The reason given in the will for the novel request is that "each trustee will watch the other" and see that, every cent given to charity will be rightly applied. I TODAY Health Hint for the Day.

Two women traveling In the same passenger coach could not agree about the window and finally appealed to the brakeman. "If that window remains open I shall catch my death of cold," objected one, to which the other promptly re plied: "If It is closed I shall smother to death." The brakeman scratched, his head In perplexity, until an old gentleman sitting nearby proposed: "Open the window until one freezes to death and then close It until the other smothers to death, and then the rest of us can finish our Journey In peace." New York Tlmea , Who Should Pay the Bills. McCook, Neb., March 1. To the Editor of The Bee: It I am reliably informed, the Taylor bill before the state legislature provides a tax on all property of the state for assisting rural education. I believe any cpmmuntty unable properly to educate Its youth should have state assistance, because educa tion is properly a state function. How ever, I have before me -a, directory of a typical Nebraska county showing that the tax levied in each rural schoul is hardly a third as many mills as Is now being levied by cities and towns. Now, the query is, why should cities and towns be excluded from the benefits of this general tax and the proceeds thereof devoted exclusively to communities now levying barely a third as much for school' purposes as the communities denied the ben fit of this general tax. W. T. DAVIS. Woman Suffrage in Practice. Omaha, Neb., March 1. To the Edi tor of The Omaha Bee: Wyoming Is a great state In area but has a popu lation of only 145,965 In 1910, less than Omaha.' Woman suffrage was adopted In Wyoming in 1869, through influence on the territorial governor. The following year the legislature re pealed woman suffrage, but the gov ernor vetoed the repeal and suffrage has been In practice for forty-eight years. Why has Wyoming "mothered" no reform legislation? Why is It In many ways the most backward in granting protective legislation to wom en and children? Section 3, Article 1, of the constitution of Wyoming reads: "The rights and privileges of Its clti zents shall be without distinction of race, color, sex, or any circumstance whatsoever other than individual In competence or unworthlness duly as certained by a court of competent jurisdiction." Suppose every state now had a constitution "eliminating sex in legislation" and requiring that women vote on the same terms as men. What would happen to the legal protection of the woman worker? In January, 1917, upholding the state constitution which denies distinc tions of sex, the Wyoming courts have declared It unconstitutional to protect the working women, and thus nullify Chapter 45, Session Laws, 1915, which prohibited the employment of women more than fifty-six hours a week, or more than ten hours a day (see page 40, labor laws of the state of Wyo ming). Thus Wyoming has constitu tionally demonstrated that "equal rights" are actually a menace to the welfare of the woman worker. Ac cording to pamphlet 248, national child labor committee, entitled "What state laws and the federal census say about child labor," Wyoming is one of the two states In the union having no standard child labor provisiona There is not even a 16-year-age limit in mines and quarries. In 1916 Wyo ming, after forty-six years of woman suffrage, passed an act establishing a nine-hour day for children .under 14 years of age. Why have women, alleged to be1 suf fering under the cruel tyranny of men they despise and laws "which they have no voice In making," never tried to colonize the vast empire of Wyoming? At the last election, November, 1916, Wyoming cast fewer votes than Dela ware, although there are more men in Wyoming. Nebraska Association Opposed to Woman Suffrage. Minneapolis reports that a favorite brand of indoor aport has suspended operations for the present.
