Council of Defense Also Accuses
University Professors and Says

I.IXCOLX. Neb., July 11. The "con
spicuous loaders of the Lutheran
Church in the state and "certain pro
fessors" of the University of Nebraska
were denounced for "treasonable utter
ances, disloyal activity and passivity
that has tended to give aid to Ger

Issued today by the Nebraska state

The statement. It Is explained. Is
based upon reports and upon hundreds
of letters from every section of the
Mate and upon hundreds of letters
from patriotic men, many of whom
declare they have Lost thousands of
dollars because they would not "'tame

Specifically it is charged that bank

Cross relief work has met with an
alarming antagonism; that the
Lutheran Church has failed to take a
single step toward organizing for war

partiality for the German Cause; that
certain professors
at Nebraska TTni-

utterances, and that there are com

charges are made were not made

chairman of the council of defense and

council could no longer repress the
bitterness it felt."
Evidence Satisfies Council.
He said ample evidence to warrant
Its assertions had been obtained by
the council.
Several Lutheran churchmen here
eatd the council should have confined its
denunciation to "German Lutherans,"
and asserted there was no cause to
question their loyalty. German Luther
ans who were alleged to be in sympathy
with Germany would not discuss the
Chancellor Samuel Avery, of the Uni
versity of Nebraska, who has been
active in patriotic relief work and has
even taken part in the campaign for
recruits, would not be quoted, but it is
known he has strongly disapproved of
a number of professors whose pro
German utterances have caused dis
sension at the university.
Home time ago students protested
pome of their professors were saying,
"this is not our war and we will not
light, because we do not know what it
Is all about."
"When complaint was made to Chan
cellor Avery it is understood there were
eorne conferences with professors, at
which the chancellor, who was then
urging the students to enlist, let it be
known in emphatic language such doc
trines must not be heard in university
Half of Students Enlist.
Half the male students at the uni
versity of Nebraska have either en
listed in some branch of the service or
have volunteered and been accepted for
work on farms in the Central Weat.
Three university professors enlisted.
Referring to disloyal Lutherans the
Council of Defense in its statement
"Perhaps never In history has it
leen deemed necessary by a public
hody to single out by name a great
church or organization and appeal to
the patriotism of its members to off
set and check the dangerous tenden
cies of many of the conspicuous repre
sentatives of that organization.
"Because of the reliable reports that
may be said to come from every sec
tion of Nebraska and come in num
bers by the hundreds it is necessary
that the council make such an appeal
with respect to the organization known
as the Lutheran church.
"Depending upon the American pa
triotism of the men and women who
comprise the Lutheran church mem
bership, the council makes this appeal
to them to put a check upon the un
American activities of some of their
conspicuous and- influential represen
tatives. The council could have waited
until great damage is done before
making its protest. Perfectly aware
that its protest is unusual, but con
scious of the absolute necessity of such
a protest, the council makes that pro
test now that American interests may
be faithfully protected.
"Confident that it is useless to make
further appeal to the conspicuous rep
resentatives of that church, the coun
cil addresses its appeal to the rank
and file of the church membership, and
hereby calls upon the membership to
Snake known, on behalf of the Luther
an Church, devotion to America the
country that gives it protection and re
ligious liberty."
The council declares it will do all in
its power to suppress in Nebraska any
interference with the determination to
push this war to a speedy and success
ful conclusion.
A report says of one community:
"Many of the business men seem to
he timid for fear they will lose busi
ness if they engage in patriotic activi
ties." The majority of bankers and other
business men, even in pro-German
communities, let it be known emphat
ically they would not be influenced
by threats, the statement says.

born, as well as many of the foreign
born, and concerning whose loyalty
there can be no question, there is gen
eral misunderstanding as to the mean
ing and the purpose of the war, and.
-therefore, among these a general lack
of sympathy with the war."
To do away with this misunder
standing, the council announces pat

velopment of industry are necessary
for the great task, we have in hand.
"But I trust that we shall not sur
round the matter with a mist of senti
ment. Facts are our masters now.
"We ought not to put the acceptance
of such prices on the ground of patriot
ism. Patriotism has nothing to do
with profits in a case like this. Pa
triotism and profits ought never, in
the present circumstances, to be men
tioned together, it 13 periectly proper
to discuss profits as a matter of busi
ness, with a view to maintaining the
integrity of capital and the efficiency
of labor in these tragical months,
when the liberty of free men every
where and of industry itself trembles
in the balance; but it would, be absurd-
to discuss them, as a motive for
helping to serve and save our country.
Profits Out of Question.
"Patriotism leaves profits out of the
question. In these days of our supreme
trial, when we are sending hundreds
of thousands of our young men across
the seas to serve a great cause, no true
man who stays behind to work for
them and sustain them by his labor
will ask himself what he is personally
going to make out of that labor. No
true patriot will permit himself to take
toll of their heroism in money or seek
to grow rich by the shedding of their
blood. He will give as freely and with
as unstinted self-sacrifice as they.
"When they are giving their lives will
ho not at least give his money?
I hear it insisted that more than a
just price, more than a price that will
sustain our industries, must be paid:
that it Is necessary to pay very liberal
and unusual profits in order to 'stimu
late production; that nothing but
pecuniary rewards will do rewards
paid in money, not in the mere libera
tion of the world. I take it for granted
that those who argue thus do not stop
to think what that means. Do they
mean that you must be paid, must be
bribed, to make your contribution, a
contribution that costs you neither a
drop of blood nor a tear, when the
whole world is in travail and men
everywhere depend upon and call to
you to bring them out of bondage and
make the world a fit place to live in
again amidst peace and justice?
Patriotism Is Broad.
Do they mean that you will exact
a price, drive a bargain with the men
who are enduring the agony of this
war on the battlefield, in the trenches
amidst the lurking dangers of the sea
or with the bereaved women and piti
ful children, before you will come for
ward to do your duty and give some
part of your life, in easy peaceful
fashion, for the things we are fighting
for, the things we have pledged our
fortunes, our' lives, our sacrea honor
to vindicate and defend liberty and
justice and fair dealing and the peace
of nations?
"Of course, you will not. It is In
conceivable. Your patriotism is of the
same self-denying stuff as the patriot
ism of the men dead or maimed on the
fields of .France, or else it in not pa
triotism at all. Let us never speak,
then, of profits and of patriotism in
the same sentence, but face facts and
meet them. Let us do o under busi
ness, but not in the midst of a mist.
Many a grievous burden of taxation
will be laid to this nation, in this gen
eration and in the next, to pay for this
war; let u3 see to It that for every
dollar that is taken from the people's
pockets it shall be possible to obtain
a dollar's worth of the sound stuffs
they need.
"Let us turn for a moment to the
shipowners of the United States and
the other ocean carriers whose ex
ample they have followed, and ask
them if they realize what obstacles,
what almost insuperable obstacles, they
have been putting in the way of the
successful prosecution of this war by
the ocean freight rates they have been
Costs May Cause Loss of Mar.
"They are doing everything that
high freight charges can do to make
the war a failure, to make it impos
sible. I do not say that they realize
this or intend it. The thing has hap
pened naturally enough, because the
commercial processes which we are
content to see operate in ordinary
times have without sufficient thought
been continued into a period where
they have no proper place. I am not
questioning motives. I am merely
stating a fact and stating it in-order
that attention may be fixed upon it.
"The fact is that those who have
fixed war freight rates have taken the
most effective means in their power to
defeat the armies engaged against
Germany. "When they realize this we
may, I take it for granted, count upon
them to reconsider the whole matter.
It is high time. Their extra hazards
are covered by war risk insurance,
Law May Be Necessary.
"I know and you know what response
to this great challenge of duty and of
opportunity the Nation will expect of
you, and I know what response you
will make. Those who do not respond,
who do not respond in the spirit of
those who have gone to give their lives
for us on bloody fields far away, may
safely be left to be dealt with by opin
ion and the law, for the law must, of
course, command those things. I am
dealing with the matter thus publicly
and frankly, not because I have any
doubt or fear as to the result, but only
in order that in all our thinking and
in all our dealings with one another
we may move in a perfectly clear air
of mutual understanding.
"And there is something more that
we must add to our thinking. The pub
lic is now as much part of the Govern
ment as are the Army and Navy them
selves. The whole people in all their
activities are" now mobilized and in
service for the accomplishment of the
Nation's task in this war. It is in such
circumstances impossible Justly to dis
tinguish between industrial purchases
made by the Government and industrial
purchases made by the managers of
industries, and it is just as much our
duty to sustain the industrials of the
country with all the industries that
contribute to its life as it is to sustain
our forces in the field and on the sea.
We must make prices to the public the
same as the prices to the Government.
Prices mean the same thing everywhere
now. They mean the efficiency or the
Inefficiency of the Nation, whether it
is the Government that pays them or
not. They mean victory or defeat. They
mean that America will win her place
once for all among the foremost free
nations of the world, or that she will
sink to defeat and become a second
rate power alike in thought and in
action. This is a day of her reckoning,
and every man amongst us must per
sonally face that reckoning along with
"The case needs no arguing. I as
sume that I am only expressing your
own thoughts what mut be In the
mind of every true man when he faces
the tragedy and the solemn glory of
the present war for the emancipation
of mankind. I summon you to a great
duty, a great privilege, a shining dig
nity and distinction. I shall expect
every man who is not a slacker to be
at my side throughout this great en
terprise. In it no man can win honor
who thinks of himself.

and mine operators.
Several said they had been forced to
leave claims they were working near
Jerome and join picket lines during the
strike called Kriday. One asserted he
had been taken from his home four
hours after his wife gave birth to a
child. Many complained of the sum
mary manner in which they were hus
tled out of Jerome.
Sheriff J. N. Cohenour telegraphed
Governor Thomas K. Campbell at Je
rome asking what disposition should
be made of the remaining 42 prisoners.
Meantime citizens held a mass meet
ing at the Courthouse to decide the
same questions. The Industrial Work
ers of the World asked to be returned
to Jerome.
NEEDLKS, Cal., July 11. Citizens,
armed with shotguns, received 60 men,
mostly Industrial Workers of the
World, upon their arrival here early
today from Jerome, Ariz., whence they
had been deported. A woman in the
party escaped and search was insti
tuted for her. Two men also got
Party Itcturncd to Arizona.
The newcomers were told they would
have to return to Arizona.
The car of men was picked up by an
eastbound freight train two hours
after its arrival and returned to Ari
zona. It was intended to take the men
to Kingman.
GLOBE, Ariz., July 11. Settlement of
the copper miners' strikes in Arizona,
which have completely stopped produc
tion in two fields and curtailed work
fn a third, seemed remote tori ay. Ap
parently both the mine owners and the
strikers are unwilling to recede from
their original positions.
A alter fa. Douglas, president of the
Phelps-Dodge Corporation, declared
ast night that the mine owners could
not treat either with the Industrial
Workers of the "World or with the In
ternational Union of Mine, Mill and
bmeiter orkers.
"Workers Eager for Conference.
Members of the Internationa 1 say
they are anxious for a conference to
effect a settlement of the dispute, but
leaders of the Inauatrial Workers of
the World declared that they would
not participate further in conferences
of the state and Federal mediation
They said they would deal only with
the mine owners direct, and have an
nounced that, unless the copper miners
demands were granted in all camps,
the strike would spread throughout
the Nation, until it involved harvest
hands, marine and land transportation
workers, and men in the coal and oil
1500 Cars May Be Delayed.
It was suggested that 1500 cars of
freight, fuel oil and coal, which had
been consigned to the mining compan
ies of this and other strike districts,
might be delayed without the neces
sity of calling a strike as a sympa
thetic move on the part of the railroad
men and freight handlers.
Fear of trouble over an order of
Sheriff Tom Armer that only one pick
et would be allowed within an area
quarter of a mile square was allayed
by instructions from Governor Thomas
E. Campbell that the pickets' were act
Ing within their rights, as long as they
were peaceful.
Reports from Bisbee Indicate that
more men are returning to work there
daily. The three principal companies
operating in that district have served
notice to their former employes that
men who do not return to work by
Friday will be treated as new app!
Picketing was resumed today at the
copper mines of this district, with two
men at each place, under a new rul
The appearance of the mounted force
of deputies, which yesterday carried
the order to reduce pickets to the
miners has caused much unfavorable
comment among the strikers and their
sympathizers, who say the new force
acts as an irritant to the strikers. T-4e
body will number 30 deputies when
completely organized and is being
called the Southwest Mounted Police.
PHOENIX. Ariz., July 11. The Sheriff
of Mohave County, at Kingman, today
telegraphed Governor Campbell that h
had 61 I. "W. W. detained there and
asked what he should do with them
Governor Campbell ordered that unless
he has some specific charge to plac
against them they should be released.
Legal Action Impossible.
Governor Campbell gave out a state
ment in which he said that nothing i
to be gained by deporting the Indus
trial Workers of the World from place
to place.
"It only means that the I. W. W. will
eventually land in some weak spot 1
the state, and then there will be trou

sible to handle the I. W. W. situatio
legally In Arizona."

ABERDEEN, Wash., July 11. Execu

and Timber WorKers' unions, who have
made demands, respectively, for an
eight and nine-hour day, at a meeting
here last night attended by E. P. Marsh,
president of the State Federation of
Labor, decided to make "common cause"
of their several demands and pledged
each other "mutual assistance."
The shingle weavers have set July
16 (next Monday) as their day to strike
if a settlement cannot be effected be
fore. The timber workers have made
no strike call as yet. The I. W. W. is
combating the proposed strike.

SPOKANE. Wash., July 11. (Special.)
Discontinuance of 1. W. W. speaking
in Spokane will be asked of Governor
Lister, of Washington, by Governor
Alexander, of Idaho. The Idaho execu
tive requests a conference with Gov
ernor Lister in Spokane in the near
future, according to a report from
Coeur d'Alene, Governor Alexander's
"war headquarters."
The situation in North Idaho is con
trolled from Spokane, according to Uov-
ernor Alexander, and he says the lead-
rs are to be looked for here rather
thf.n in the lumber camps.
Besides hearing evidence from county
fficials and defense bodies. Governor
Alexander, in company with Sheriff T.
L. Queries, of Koot nal Countv: W. T.
Dougherty, Secretary of State for Idaho,
and iu. barker, Lieutenant-Governor,
yesterday visited some of the X W. W.
camps near Harrison.
The Sheriff, acting under the Gov-
rnor's directions, ordered the camners
to leave the country and directed three
aliens to appear in Coeur d'Alene.
Governor Alexander still takes the
stand that the Council of Defense is not
the proper body to ask for troops in
Idaho, and that the civil authorities
should deal with the situation.

BUTTE. Mont.. July 12. The Metal
Mine Workers Union yesterday voted
down a proposal to affiliate with the
American Federation of Labor through
the International Mine, Mill and Smelt
er Kmployes Union, of which Charles
H. Moyer is president. Officials of the
union, said that about 50UO votes were

votes still were being- counted, with the
ballot running- about 15 to 1 against the

votes had been cast asrainpt affiliation
and 128 for. It was said that the count

The electricians last night refused to
accept the proposed agrree-ment as
drawn at a conference between a. strike
committee and the Montana Power
Company. The committee was instruct
ed to continue its negotiations with the
power company. Objection was found
to an arbitration agreement as to inter
pretation of the contract And to a pro
vision that tho acceptance of the con
tract meant that all men now in the
employ of the company should be re
garded as "fair.' The prevailing fact
in the union, it Is said, -.demanded the
discharge of sub-foremen and others
who have done emergency work since
the strike was called.
A new condition which may prove a
barrier to settlement of the strike
developed today in the announce
ment of James O'Brien, president
of the Montana Metal Trades
Council, that this organization would
present demands to the mining com
panies here tomorrow which will in
volve additional agreements concern

today from the conference of the Metal
Trades in Great Falls. The demands
of the metal trades involving work of
electricians, he said, will be made in
dependently and separate from the
agreement which is to be voted on
tonight by the Electricians Union.
The question of support of the Metal
Trades Workers demands by the Engi
neers' Union is also an issue discussed
in labor circles today. Although once
before put to the test, the engineers
voted against a strike when metal
trades workers engaged at the mines
were called out in sympathy with the
