Despite steel-clad munles, Teutonic democra cies do powerful lot of thinking. Speaker Clark "stands back of the president," but with a hammer up hit sleeve. ' Every day is a good day for a clean sweep. Besides, it pays comfortable dividends. Not the least of the joys of gardening lies in the development of the hook for fall use. Business is all right, The chief' danger lies in devoting too much attention to the price tags. - i ii i Loaning money to John Bull to Buy x anitee products is good business as well as i friendly action. Another convincing argument for conscription is that it will persuade down-casters to shoot as they shout. As measure of safety, it is hoped the hoard ers of augar will refrain from raising the roofs of the warehouses. ; : Now that the session is over, will Lieutenant Governor Howard come through with ihis prom ised review of proceedings? . Steady there, Uncle Sam I Keep your feet on firm ground. Liberal doses of bromides mod crate the headaches of flattery. ,, 'At last accounts the Turks were running strong between bases, -with good prospects of making the home plate at Constantinople. Food speculators will have themselves to blame if their,, manipulations force the hand of the government in defense of the people. . The German minister monopolizes the cheers of members of the Mexicsn congress. Evidently the Teutonic campaign bar'l has lost its head. Report says American war correspondents have been invited to leave Germany. Gratitude for past favors is impossible In a military machine. 1 Each man, woman and child in the place where hey can do most for the country is the correct iim of mobilization and what we' are trying to ittain. i ' j The modern interpretation of the mystic, law of supply and demand consists in co-ordinating the .supply and scaring the demand. The rest is :asy money. ' ' . Says Lansing to Spring-Rice: "Here you, are, niy boy, and when that's gone come in again." "Thanks," saya Spring-Rice to 'Lansing, "and dont worry; I'll be back." 'it is natural that the resistance of the Ger mans should become more stubborn as the line is pushed back, but the persistence of the Allied attack doesn t weaken on that account. With nntold millions of people on reduced rations, there is no danger of American farmers producing an excess of food crops. The world needs all that can be raised and will pay well for it. -, The kaiser's record of his U-boat achieve ments will have to be revised to the extent of omitting the name of the giant freighter Staten- dam, that vessel having steamed into New York, although reported aunk two months ago. Congressman Huddleston ought to read the list of volunteers and see how many of them come from the great, schools of the country he is so liberally maligning. His demagogy is so apparent that out of congress it would be very near treason. Acts of Service -Waekletftaei Paat- Thousands of persons have expressed a desire to know how they can best be of service to their country in the present war. Presumably every American citizen wants to help in some way. i here are probably millions who are ready to vol' unteer for the army and navy, but while the gov rrnment is evolving its military policy all jntcl latent citizens can be of assistance. For one thing economy in the household is the best kind of national service. The person in the city can eat less without waiting for food re strictions, while the farmers in the rural districts can ntoduce more. Incidentally there is a consensus of opinion that the big bond issue might well be broken up into segments and that the bonds should be of small denomination. Great Britain haa provided a method whereby groups of persons may form clubs to buy one bond, each person contributing a small amount. Such a system in the United States would mark the community of interest that stimulates public spirit and patriotism. It is true that home economy, subcription to bonds and the smaller duties of citizenship are not always inspiring to the individual. Neverthe less, in giving this quiet service the people of the country will add to the spirit of unity as well as to the pulling power of the nation. The smaller services are quite as necessary as army enlist' merits and the strengthening of the navy. Se- ' lective conscription is inevitable if the nation is to be efficient, but even, those who are not called upon to serve in the army or the navy can do their Lay of the Late Legislature. ' Quietly, almost unnoted, the longest session of the legislature in Nebraska's history spluttered out and the members unobtrusively slipped sway to their homes. Most of the criticism that will be laid against the body may be contained in the harge that it wasted time. So far as the laws it passed are concerned, they are mainly ol negative value, just as the session is notable for what was not done rather than for what was. Aside from the appropriation bills and prohibition law, very ittle of state-wide importance was undertaken in the way of legislation. Much attention was given to a project having for its purpose the erection of a new and sorely needed state house, but this was killed in the last moments of the session, the democrats deciding to go along with a building that all admit is not only outworn, but is posi tively dangerous to its occupants. The ballot was shortened" by the omission of the names of presi dential electors, but other asked-for changes were not granted. Steps were taken to the calling of constitutional convention, the voters to deter mine if one is wanted. Of laws of local concern or minor importance in their application, a great many were enacted, so that the record of the leg islature in the total of bills considered-will look like a monument to industry. That some of the things proposed to be done were not done is the chief item in the credit that will follow the mem bers to their homes. Service the Main Thing. The Bee agrees with Congressman Stephens in his main contention as to the desirability of passing the president's army bill. What is im peratively expected of every citizen of the United States, male or female, is service according to ability. This may not always be fully determined by the individual. Admitting that a sufficient army may be raised through the volunteer system, we arc confronted by the absolute certainty that in the ranks of that army would be found many who might be of much greater value in some other employment. Great Britain found it necessary to bring back from the trenches hundreds of skilled mechanica who had volunteered because their place was in the workshop rather than on the firing line. This experience should teach us something; we have muddled through other crises, but never has the nation faced one so grave as, the present Wisdom points the way plainly; the ques tion is, will we follow it? Under the selective draft an army may be formed that will be effi cient in the field and in the workshop and on the farm as well, back to the tenth man who is said to stand behind every bayonet. Under such con ditions no stigma attaches to the draft, as is hinted at by Champ Clark, but the service is as honorable as any ever performed in the name of flag and country. Political Unrest in Germany. Dark hints and vague rumors of upheavals in German political life continue to come through, all lacking verification, yet each possessing some quality that keeps it within the range of possi bility. The latest of these has to do with the position of Von Bethmann-Hotlweg as imperial chancellor. It may well be conceded that his place ia a storm center and that he has held to office through thirty-four months of the empire's greatest trials is proof enough of his remarkable strength, but it is also evident that a tide of dis content is rising in Germany that may overwhelm even the strongest. Von Bethmann-Hollweg rep resents the imperial will, but against him is forming, or may be formed, a coalition that even the emperor must in time of war at least regard. The German people must be disappointed with the progress of the war; they have given unhesi tatingly and ungrudgingly of their lives and their treasure, only to find themselves shut off from the world, their military position becoming daily more precarious as their economical aituation is continually becoming graver. Promises made in support of pleas have not been redeemed, and only repetition of those promises is now offered to secure luriner sacrincea. Observers of German progress realize that ante-bellum conditions cannot be restored in Germany any more than in the rest of the world, The conservative element, which consists bf sev eral groups, has been the dominating influence in the politics of the empire for years, but the course of the war has strengthened the ranks as welt as the power of the socialists and liberals, and these now have lined up for a final test with the reactionaries. What is actually going on in Germany is hid den from the world outside; but signs and por tents all indicate that the people of the empire are not bearing the strain with the resignation the emperor and his chancellor would like to note. Evolution cannot be atayed in nations any more than in nature, and its forces too long restrained burst forth in revolution. The readjustment in Germany may be neither violent nor extensive, but a readjustment is inevitable. Getting Cloaer Together. , Until congress has finally passed the taws that will be needed to provide for governmental food control, nothing definite may be aaid as 1o just how far the federal authorities will undertake to regulate the storage snd distribution of food. For the present effort is mainly bent in the direction of stimulating production. Serious problems, growing from untoward climatic conditions, are sufficiently engrossing for the season. However, it is encouraging to note the spirit of co-operation exhibited by the various marketing agencies in their approach to the government as to future relations. Correspondence between the Omaha Live Stock exchange and the Department of Agri culture, for example, is along lines that shows the men closest to the marketing of live stock appre ciate what is expected of them and that they are disposed to act with the government as far as they may, to the end that good will come for all. This is in keeping with the genera) move ment noticeable all over the country. Americans are getting closer together in presence of a com mon danger, a sign that means much for the preservation of our common interests. It is inferred from tie Federal Trade commis sion's report that when the Standard Oil Simon whispers, "Thumbs up," all .the children instantly obey. Surely the commission did not expect disobedience in a well-regulated family. Getting rich by manipulating the necessities of the nation is not going to be popular this year nor very successful. The public will find a way u driven to it, mark thatl The kaiser still insists that God is with his army. The assumption makes the Allied for. ward push a greater achievement than the win tiers claim Department of Agriculture Prophets of the Crops By Frederic J. Haslcin Washington. D. C. Aoril 23. The whole De- nartmenf nf Agriculture todav is humming with activity. You can not go into the smallest of its score of buildings without catching the indefin able feel of large activities and the rush of prep aration in the air. Nowhere is this feeling stronger than in the bureau of crop estimates, where they are quietly and rapidly taking stock of the farm and food resources of the biggest and richest producer nation on earth. The bureau of croo estimates has already told us that the winter wheat will be 52,000,000 bushels short this year, and as a result of that information steps have already been taken to make up the shortage. The bureau can make an accurate esti mate of the condition and probable yield of any important crop in the United States within two weeks of the day the estimate' is asked for. It can get in a reasonably accurate estimate by wire within twenty-tour hours. It can turnisn similar estimates, not only on crops, but on any farm materials or on the available supply of farm labor, which is one of the most pressing ques tions of the moment. Efficiency is the result of organization. Few people have an adequate idea of the huge organi zation back of the monthly crop estimates. In every one of the 2,850 rural counties in the United States there is a county crop reporter, who gen erally has about four assistants who report to him, making a total of over 14,000 county re porters. The reports from these men come to the bureau at Washington, where they furnish the basis for one set of estimates. Then there are the township reporters, work ing independently, one to every township 33,000 of them in all. These men also report directly to the bureau, and their estimates are tabulated and totaled, furnishing the basis for a second esti mate that is used tor a check on the first. Thirdly, there is in every state a salaried spe cialist who has a corps of voluntary reporters covering the state quite independent of the county and township reporters, making reports to him direct. This specialist travels about his district, and on the basis of what he sees and what his re porters tell him he prepares a crop estimate of his state, which he sends to the bureau. Thus the bureau has three separate and dis tinct sets of estimates to collate and check up in preparing its final estimate. By means of this system estimates are made so accurately that they check up within 2 or 3 per cent of the actual crop yield. It is possible to check up the esti mates on the cotton crop very accurately because the census bureau is ordered by law to report on the actual amount of cotton produced. The crop estimate on cotton has differed, less than 1 fier cent from the actual crop harvested for the ast three years. For two years it differed less than one-half of I per cent. This is a good deal closer than the individual farmer can estimate in advance the yield from a ten-acre field. Regular estimates are published monthly on a long list of staple crops, but the bureau of crop estimates can give an accurate idea of the national supply ot everything connected with the tarm. Recently it was desired to know how many steam tractors there were in use in the United States. The bureau sent out queries to 32,000 selected co operators, and in a few days could announce that there were 34,000 tractors in use in the United States. The value of such service to a nation at war is very clear. ' ' J. he work of the bureau is made possible by the existence of a national spirit of co-operation and good will. Only the state inspectors and a few specialists draw salaries. The thousands on thousands of crop reporters do their work for no compensation, often going to great trouble gathering information and filling out regular and special reports, and without them the service would be impossible. Most of the county and township reporters are farmers, while the state inspectors get another line on the situation through such men as millers, managers of grain elevators, business men and bankers. "QUAY When the various totals on the three sets of estimates have been compiled, a so-called crop estimating board goes into secret session to com pile the final estimate. Every precaution is taken to prevent "leaks," because a little advance infor mation on the estimate of such a crop as wheat, lor example, would lead to tortunes being made and lost on the exchange. The reports of the state estimators have previously been sent to the department in special envelopes. They go direct to the secretary's office, where they are locked in a special safe, and only the secretary or the acting secretary of agriculture may open them. While the crop estimating board is in session usually a matter of five or six hours the whole bureau of crop estimates is locked and no one is allowed to pass in or out. f When the estimate has been made and orinted on a number of mimeograph sheets for distribu tion to the newspapers and others; the sheets Ve taken down to the telegraph section. I he exact minute for publication has been made public long in advance. A few years ago the board was thirty seconds late in announcing irt results. During that thirty seconds a rumor got started on the cotton exchange that the results were ditferent from what they actually proved and large sums of money were made and lost in consequence. un a long table in the telegraph room the report sheets are laid face down before the rank ing official. He folds two sheets and hands them to the telegraph operators. When the estimate concerns an important: croo mere is a lone line of newspaper correspondents and others waiting for the results. Each man is handed a sheet which he holds before him face down until the clock ticks off the appointed minute. Then another set of crop estimates has become public property. Our Fighting Men Albert Gleaves. Rear Admiral Albert Gleaves, commanding the destroyer force of the Atlantic fleet, was born at Nashville. Tenn., in 1858 and was .grad uated from the Naval academy in 1881. In the war with Spain he won distinction in command of the torpedo boat Cushing, and since that time he has been an authority on the equipment and handling of that type of naval craft. From 1904 to 1908 he was in charge of the torpedo station at Newport. A year ago last November he was again placed in charge of the torpedo fleet at Newport. Last year, when the German submarines made their sensational raid on merchant ships in the waters around Nantucket, Admiral Gleaves and his- fleet of torpedo boat destroyers per formed valiant service in connection with the rescue of persons on the ships sunk by the Ger man plungers.

A native of Tennessee, he was graduated from Annapolis in 1875 and made his first cruise in the Hartford, Farragut's old flagship. In his early career he acquired a sound techincal knowledge of steel and as an in spector and adviser his services proved of ma terial help to the Navy department when it began building the modern steel warships. In the war with Spain Admiral Caperton waa an officer on the gunboat Marietta and the close of the conflict found him a lieutenant commander, A year at the Naval War college, three years as inspector of lighthouses, a year or so as commandant of the Newport station, with long cruises to distant parts of the world and a period in command of the Atlantic reserve fleet are included in his record of service for the last decade.

Whtla Sana) t fnTbUsr M. W. H. Buchola. Omaha, April 25. To the Editor of The Bee: Since coming to Omaha eleven years ago, W. ti. Bucholz reached a position In our community such as held but by few people. He was perhaps above every other man in the city responsible for the great advancement In our financial matters and Institutions. He always took the position that anything that w:is good for Omaha and Its business and finan cial affairs was good for his own in stitution and that every individual would receive his share in general prosperity and advancement. i Many and many have been tho times when he could have taken ad' antage of his personal knowledge In business matters to have made hJn.lf an in dependent fortune, but his position in varUbly wen: that tho banker must re main a banker and not invest in out side business affairs and that It was his ducy to help busing institutions, back them to an extreme limit and not only to lend financial aid, but to give pergonal advice and direction to in stitutions that were the customers of his bank. He was a marl of very few words, of quick and firm decisions and when he had once given his word to a cus tomer he was never known to break it. He had the absolute confidence of his business friends and customers of his bank, as well as other bankers, so that whatever position he might take on any proposition carried with it a wonderful weight. He was kind hearted, devoted to his friends, a won derful companion to his two sons, and as a man was the soul of honor in personal as well as in business affairs. In Herman Bucholz this community has lost its greatest friend. Had he be;n less devoted to his duties and had thought more of himself he un doubtedly would be living today. As it is he gave up his life at the age of 51 at a time when he was at his prime and when he should have looked for ward tat leyst twenty more years of useful service J. A. T. Service of J .and Bank. Omaha, April 24. To the Editor of The Bee: A correspondent of The Bee complains concerning the slow ness of the Federal Land bank and Intimates that this bank is In a con spiracy with food speculators to de lay loans to farmers. . It is due to the public that the facts I be stated as to the operation of the federal farm loan system. , The Federal .Land banks were au thorized by act of congress, approved j July 17, 191b.- This hank was organ ized on February 27 and received its charter from the United States gov ernment on March 8, 1917. Since that date about 20,000 letters of inquiry have been answered from our offices in Omaha, the work of preliminary organisation completed and now our appraisers are In the field, beginning the task of appraising properties of fered as security for nearly $9,000,000 of loans scattered ovter the four states In the Eighth Federal Land bank dis trict This has all taken time. The offi cers of the Federal Land bank of Omaha are receiving congratulations from Washington and from all who have intimate knowledge of the stu pendous task they have undertaken, because of the- promptness and effi ciency with which this preliminary work has been done. If your corre spondent, who seems to be an Omaha man, would take the trouble to call at our office and inform himself we think he would feel assured that all progress consistent with business safe ty has been made and that the Fed eral Land Bank is as desirous ot serv ing all farmers who have adequate se curity and who comply with the terms of the law as it Is possible to do. It should not be necessary to state that the officers of this bank, who are under oath and bond to the federal government to' perform their duties Impartially, have no connection with any imagined conspiracy to play into the hands of food speculators.
