IT CAN'T BE DONE.
In a lengthy editorial disquisition the Lincoln
Journal offers a labored contention that, in the
coming campaign for the nomination and election
of a United States senator from Nebraska, the
question of loyalty and disloyalty be wholly elimi
nated from consideration. "The danger in the
situation," it tells us, "lies in the disposition
sometimes shown to divide the candidates and the
party as If one part were loyal American citizens
and the rest traitors."
Whatever specious arguments may be pre
sented, let no one deceive himself in the belief
that the supreme issue presented by this world
war and America's participation in it can be
camouflaged out of the voters' minds when they
go to the polls next November in Nebraska any
more than right now in Wisconsin.
If the war continues, ' as seems to be the
present prospect, the test of loyalty and thorough
Americanism is going to be applied a great deal
more stringently than the test of party affiliation.
It is going to be impossible for anyone who, on
his record, has been serving the ends of the
kaiser in order to tickle pro-German constituents
to appeal successfully for the votes of patriotic
citizens, even although every one of the candi
dates should subscribe to a gentleman's agree
ment not to mention the war from start to finish.
jThe Lincoln Journal's suggestion that a
United States senator be chosen from Nebraska
next fall without reference to the issue of loyalty
and disloyalty, is absolutely impracticable and
futile. The next United .States senator elected
from, this state must be in accord with the senti
ments of the majority of the voters and we will
bank on it that the majority of Nebraska voters
are bound by but a single allegiance and that to
America as against all foreign enemies.
. '
Indefensible.
Prevalent suspicions of crookedness in the
city hall will not be allayed if the deal is per
mitted to go through which Commissioner Kugel
has cooked upto saddle a man nearly 60 years
old on the police pension fund for life by the
trick of "reinstatement" after he has been off the
force for IS years. We pass over for the present
the record this particular officer made while on
the force and the reasons why he got off, but we
protest against this proposed' raid on the city
treasury.
"Whether the moving cause is a promise of
political support for Kugel's vain ambition to be
re-elotted, or some less creditable and equally
indefensible consideration, is immaterial. The
purpose is undisguised to make a present to the
beneficiary of a life income, equivalent to the re
turns on ah investment of $10,000, by means of a
petty subterfuge without any rightful claim. If
this example is set every aged or broken-down
out-of-a-job ex-policeman will be coming back
lo land a soft berth on the pension fund, and the
police pension list, instead of being a roll of
honor, will become nothing but a roster of per
sonal or political favorites. The deal is so
rotten that it must nauseate evcii our city council.
' Saint Patrick, His Day.
Catholic . and Protestant t alike today pay
tribute to the memory of Patrick, saint of Ireland,
whose good deeds shone in a naughty world, and
whose service renews itself in freshness as does
the shamrock dedicated to the day, Waiving all
dispute as to the birth and extraction of the good
saint, it remains true that "he found Ireland with-J
out a Christian and left it without a pagan. His
undisputed success ju his self-imposed apostolate
excels in its simplicity and endurance that of any
single missioner of the gospel of Christ. It is
said of him he was a man of deeds rather than of
words, and for this reason he left but few writ
ings, and from these but little is to be learned
of his history. To this self-effacement may be
ascribed the many unsettled disputes as to his
ministry, the quality of faith he preached and the
peculiar dogma he dispensed. It comforts the
sectaries, of widely variant views to hold their
doctrine has the sanction of 'St. Patrick, and
some who are uninformed as to the narrowness of
the original crevice which has widened into the
unbridgeable and almost unfathomable chasms
of schismatic divergence in the church, marvel
greatly that so gentle and so saintly, a character "
as Patrick could have left such a heritage. This,
however, has little to do with the greater fact
that he left another heritage that is common to
all true lovers of the race that of devotion to an
ideal the radiance of which still shines over the
humble and devout, no matter at what altar they
kneel. - '
Representative Randall of California is in

War's Depletion of the Available Supply of Doctors Largely
Offset by Health Conservation.
The calling into service of Omaha's base
hospital, unit will still further deplete our
medical circles by taking away another group
of physicians and surgeons and devolve upon
those remaining the entire task of doctoring
the whole community. I am informed that
the records of the local medical society show
that 20 per cent of the members are away
in service connected with the war, their ab
sence being attested by the fact that their
memberships are being carried along without
dues. Despite this tremendous shrinkage in
their number, doctors tell me that they have
not been unduly overrun with patients.
"Perhaps folks don't get sick so much
without the aid of a doctor," I ventured.
"Well, there is more in that than you
think," was the answer, "Many people run
to the family doctor at the slightest ailment
or with the least excuse, but are slow to go
to someone else if he does not happen to be
handy. I have lots of patients who, rather
than consult someone else, wait for my re
turn when they know I am away only for a
short time, even though I tell them that
someone else is caring for my practice for
me. )
"There is another thing, too, that may
account for the apparent reduction of the
amount of sickness, likewise attributable to
war conditions. It is well established that
the. food conservation movement is also a
health conservation movement. Ailments
due to overeating and diseases of the stom
ach or digestive organs are not so common
since the food restrictions were put into
force. Meatless and wheatless days and less
sugar and less sweets are offsetting the
services of nov small number of the doctors
who have gone to the front or. to military
hospitals.
"Remember again, that the different war
activities are keeping, people busy women
as well as men and busy people do not have
so much time (p dwell upon little aches and
pains and imagine themselves sick. The
pressure of war activities may tend to disturb
nervous conditions and stimulate nervous
diseases, but are doing less damage in this di
rection than might be expected , because
counteracted by the healthful exercise and
mental diversion. No one need fear that the
doctors on the job, though limited in num
ber, will not tor some time to come be able
to take care of all the patients needing at
tention and to do it without seriously over
working." It is with real regret that I note the news
of the death at Washington this week of
Charles Page Bryan, who was the distin
guished representative of the United States
at many foreign capitals and with whom I
enjoyed a 20-year personal acquaintance and
friendship. There is an interesting, story
behind Mr. Bryan's projection into national
politics and public life which, by the way,
came at about thesame time as that of Wil
liam Jennings Bryan, who, notwithstanding
similarity of name and both being natives of
Illinois, bear no relationship. When Mark
Hanna started out to engineer the prelimi
nary campaign that was to land Governor
McKinley in the White House over formid
able opposition, he undertook to enlist the
new and younger element of the republican
party behind his favorite, perhaps because
the older crowd were following others-leaders.
To promote hit appeal in Illinois, he
got in touch with three rising and ambitious
young men and prevailed upon them to as
sume the work of organization and campaign
management in behalf of McKinley. These
three, jocularly referred to as "the three
Charleys" were Charles G. t Dawes, well
known in Nebraska for having begun his
career as a young lawyer in Lincoln; Charles
U. Gordon and Charles Page Bryan. These
three men buckled down to business with all
their skill and energy and "put it over," as
the phrase goes, with results far exceeding
expectations and naturally to the great de
light of Mark Hanna, who was duly appre
ciative nd grateful. As those who followed
that memorable campaign of 1896 know, Illi
nois went republican and McKinley was
elected president When he took over the
reins of the national government, "Charley"
Dawes became comptroller, of the currency,
"Charley" Gordon' became postmaster of
Chicago, the second important postoffice in
the country, and "Charley" Bryan went into
the diplomatic service first as minister to
China and then in succession to Brazil,
Switzerland, Portugal, Belgium and Japan,
retiring to private life-right after the elec
tion of Woodrow Wilson so as not to em
barrass him in appointing a good democrat
as a successor. ,
What inconveniences and hardships the
demoralization of the railroads has been in
flicting upon people whose business requires
them constantly to travel is, I believe,
sbarcely realized by stay-at-homes. The
elimination of so many trains and the almost
every-trip delays of the trains that have been
retained on the schedules, making passengers
miss connections or idle away time enroute
which they expected to devote to their work,
has. proved costly as well as provoking and
the burden has not fallen alone on commer
cial tourists either. Meeting Bishop Wil
liams, I asked whether lie was as much of a1
traveler now as always and he said: "Yes,
but my experiences with poor train service in
making my visits to the different parishes in
the diocese this winter has made me almost
dread what used to be a pleasure. I do not
know when traveling has been so tiring and
annoying. It is so rare that a train is on
time. Perhaps I do not stand it as well as
I used Ao because I am growing older, but
I never before found my traveling at all
laborious. During my first charge as mis
sionary in the White River Valley, covering
a vast territory sparsely settled, I rode 35,000
miles in saddle and buckboard in four years
and enjoyed it hugely. No, I'm sure I
couldn't do it again."
While on the subject of national politics,
how many people know that Oregon voters
at their next primary election will choose
their members of the respective national
committees for their various parties? Ore
gon is one of the original direct primary
states and one of the few, with South Da
kota and Nebraska, to establish a direct vote
election of representatives on the national
committees. To divorce the question of
party management from the factional pulling
and hauling usually surrounding a presiden
tial contest through the choice of delegates
to a national nominating convention, the
Oregon law was recast so as to bring the
election of national committeemen into the
primary midway between presidential elec
tions, and this explains how it comes that
Oregon voters will this year commission
their national committee members fer a term
of four years carrying over the next big
presidential fight. Ort""the republican side,
my friend Ralph E. Williams, has announced
his desire to continue in the position on the
platform of "a united republican party and
110 factionalism." Mr. Williams was put on
the committee originally at the Chicago
convention of 1908, and went through the
skirmish of 1912 and subsequent party split,
after which this off years election scheme
was inaugurated and he nevertheless took
his title anew by direct popular vote and in
all probability will again be re-elected in
recognition of his staying on the job and do
ing the work.
Facts About Food Situation
m
Hope of theJVorld Rests on Bumper Crop This Year
Wall Street
At the close of the year the International
Institute of Agriculture reported on the
wheat crop of all Europe, excepting the Teu
tonic alliance, Russia and Roumania. These
countries, with India, Japan, northern Africa,
the United States and Canada, had 1,854,000,
000 bushels. This was 4 per cent less than
the small crop of last year, and 15 per cent
less than their average in the five years im
mediately preceding the wan
' In these same countries rye was less than
92 per cent of the average; barley, 95.9 per
cent; rice, 837 per cent; oats, 113.4 per cent,
and corn, 113 per cent. B14 this in
cludes the large quantity of soft cor in the
United States. -If this were deducted the
world cop would show. below the five-year
average. ' Here then is the world's bread
supply with the exception of the crops of
Argentina and Australia, which, in the
absence of shipping, are for the most part
unavailable.
The United States, Canada and India are
the only exporting countries in the group re
ported by the institute. Their estimated
crops will foot up to 1,260,000,000. This
leaves about 600,000,000 bushels in the crops
of the entente powers, and the small neutral
countries. Together, these countries before
the war consumed an average of 1,250,000,000
bushels of wheat a year. Now they are short
650,000,000 bushels.
Lord Rhondda visualized the situation in
fewer -words when he said to the United
States: "Unless you can send us 75,000,000
bushels we cannot hold out until your a,rmy
is ready to strike." ,
On the basis of pre-war consumption and
reserves 250,000,000 bushels would represent
the limit of what North America could sur
ply. This country has already passed its
limit and Canada is being swept clea.n. What
dependence can be placed upon the other ex
porting countries in the present state of
shipping? Since the first of January Ad
journal.
tralia has shipped 3,380,000 bushels, Argen
tina 2,680,000 and India 800,000. Almost
enough to set the tables two days, shipped in
six weeks 1
x These are the facts. They lead to the
conclusion that since the war began a food
crisis has been slowly developing. A famine
in Europe is a possibility this year. Should
the war last through the next year, the situa
tion will fat more perilous. The farms and
gardens of the United States and Canada
are the hope of the world. We must ex
tend credit to the farmers and, as a nation,
plow, plant and hoe, or our soldiers fight in
vain.

A BUNCH O' SHAMROCKS.
Thro Erlh'i Isle,
To sport awhile,
As Love and Valor wandered, I
With Wit the aprtte,
Whose quiver bright
A thousand arrows squandered.
WherV'er they pass
A triple grass
Shoot up with dswdrop streaming,
As softly grsen A
A emeralds seen
Thro' purest crystal gleaming.
Oh, the Shamrock, ths green Immortal
Shamrock
Chosen leaf
Of bard and chief,
Old Erin's native Shamrock.
Thomas Moore.
Badge of St. Patrick his own holy ?day
Bowed at whose shrine doth he worshipper
pray.
No wreath of laurel, nor yet Immortelle.
Breathes e'en a tithe of thy wondretvil
spell. i
Sweet bit o' green, hall thy mission avowed!
Let every wearer ol shamrock bs proud.
Seemeth each sprig of the em'rald to say:
"Top o' the mornla'J Ood bless you this
day." ,
H. L, Babcock.
The bay and the laursl may wither and
fade,
And palaces crumble te dust;
The cr own 'may be robbed of its Jewels of
price.
And ths sword of the victor may rust.
But ss long as the children ot Erin recall
With affection the mountain and mire
land And meadows of home. It will reign, In
their hearts,
The little green Shamrock of Ireland.

HOW TO JUDGE A WOMAN
BY HER HAIR
There is real common sense in Just
noticing whether the hair is well kept
to judge of a woman's neatness, or
good taste. If you are one of the few
who try to make the most of your
hair, remember that it is not advis
able to wash the hairwith any
cleanser made for all purposes, but
always use some good shampoo. You
can enjoy the very best by getting
some Canthrox from your druggist,
dissolve a teaspoonful in a cup of
hot water. This makes a full cup of
shampoo liquid, enough so it is easy
to apply it to all the hair instead of
just the top of the head. Dandruff,,
excess oil and dirt are dissolved and
entirely disappear. Your hair will be
so fluffy that it will look much
heavier than it is. Its luster and soft
ness will also delight you, while the
stimulated scalp gains the health
which insures hair growth.--Adv.
