An Important Street Railway Decision j
A Bupromo court decision coming up from
Lincoln to tho, effect that the State Railway ,
commission has Jurisdiction over tho regulation
of service nnd affairs of common carriers, In
cluding the streot. railway within municipal
limits, challenges attontion for Its possible ap
plication to our Omaha street railway condi
tions. In this particular caso the supreme court
hns upheld an Injunction Issued by a lower
court against tho abandonment of a line and
ordoring restoration of uninterrupted traffic
on the ground that tho approval of the state
commission had not been first obtained.
It Is quite easy to see that the attorneys for
th c Omaha Street Railway company In pending
suits over tho aoven-for-a-quafter initiative or
dinance will seek to find in this ruling support
for their contention that regulation of fares
comes under the stato commission, and that the
municipal authorities have no Jurisdiction.
That does not necessarily follow, however, as
wo8oo it. No one denies tho power of the stato
bonrd over street railway scrvlco extending out
side of tho city limits, or connecting two adja
cent cities, but the city may yet insist that It
has concurrent Jurisdiction within its own
In the Lincoln caso no action one way or
tho other by tho city authorities is disclosed,
end the lino which was sought to be abandoned
was part of another line to one of the suburbs.
If one order should have come from the city
and a dlfferont and conflicting order from the
Stato Railway commission, than the question
might ariso as to which one- should govern.
Rut the trend of legislation In Nobraska has
been to rccognizo the principle of home rule In
all local matters, and especially in the regula
tion of local public utility service. It will tako
a moro clear-cut decision from the supremo
court than this ono to stop the exercise of home
rulo powers upon our streot railways.

Tho president's selections for the fedoral re

to koep the personnel of that body to a high
standard. So far as they have public records

against the conservatism which would naturally
be expected to characterize a board so mado up,
In fact, we doubt If any of tho financiers chosen
to tako chargo of the new banking system could
qualify as 16 to 1 free coinage champions, and,
If any of them supported the free silver candi

possibly ono or two of them did, It must have
been merely out of blind partisanship. Thii
much Is at least of record, that tho presidents

' A contributor' to Tho Doo's lottor box taken
excoption to the speech of Congressman Sabath,
which wo roprlnted from the Congresslon.nl
Record, .calling attention to tho foreign blood
in tho veinB of sailors and marine.. vhr tnlil
down thoir lives at Vera Cruz, and lauding their
spirit or patrotlsm and bravery. The question
Is aBked, What provocation, or grlovanco called
for a public tribute to the fallon heroes, with
special emphaslB upon tholr Immigrant an
cestry? It is only fair to say that upon receipt of the
news of the solrure of the Mexican port, with
tho namoB of those who had lost their Uvea in
this exploit, qulto a number' of congressmen
wero moved to pronounce eulogies upon the
first victims of tho war, particularly where tho
claim could be set up by a congressman that tho
hero was contributed by hli constituency. Ai
to tho appropriateness of such eulogleB, there
may bo a difference ot opinion, although tho
practtce Is neither new nor uncommon Tho
opportunity was tho InviUng, however, nay,
IrrisUtlble, while praises were beinsr ahnwr.!
upon the war victims' devotion to the flag, to
reiuto effectively tho argument, so often urged
for shutting tho door tight against all imrai
grantB, that the. newcomers are lacking in loy
alty and patriotism, or less likely than native
bom to rally around tho flag when- It Is In dan
ger. All history provos tho contrary to be true,
namely, that foreign blood achieved, our lndjo
pondence, saved the union and has upheld tho
country's honor whenever assailed. ""
Whatever other reasons may bo advanced
by tho immigration . reatrlcUonlsts, there Is
nothing whatever1 to their alarm that .foreign
blood is deteriorating to patriotism or weakens
the fighting strength of tho nation.'

OMAHA, May S.-To the Editor of The
Bee: We are off at last to that wonder
ful land of promise. We have lived so
long In Omaha that we were fastened
down like barnacles and had to be prJod
loose. When one sees good hentth flying
away he will run anywhere to get It
What a task It has been to get free.
We aie leaving so much; wilt this El
dorado be better? Our weather gaugu
UsUally takes three days to make a
change; theirs can hop around In six
hours to opposite sides of the compass.
Wo' sometimes get hot scorching winds
from Kansas, once In seven years, I be
lieve. Will the breezes from their reck
ing dceerts he any milder? Will their
chilly ocean winds bo aa fresh as tho
whiffs wo get from the Nebraska corn
and alfalfa fields? Will tholr Irrigated
patches be as green as our miles and
miles of natural green hills and valleys?
And the roees of California as big aa
dinner plates; will they be as sweet as
the American Beauty that my gray-haired
lover brings mn every morning from our
own. yard, Its totals sparkling with
myriad brilliants and the diamond dew
drop In Its loyal heart?
I've been crazy to see the Pacific ever
since that lesson In geography where
Balboa cllmbfd a tree to see the ocean.
Will It give half the pleasuro of a boat
rlile up tho Big Muddy, a lunch on tho
grass and a homo run in the rain?
Will tho snow-capped mountains be
finer thnn our varicolored hills, with
pretty farm houses tucked In here and
there, lying all about Omaha?
Don't tell me Omaha Is dull or behind
the times. Our skyscrapers rival any
city, our streets arc cleaner than many
others, our parka and boulevards nro of
the finest, A Jaunt on our streets Is as
good as a trip to foreign lands. Ydu can
meet people from almost any country
of tho globe, and hero he Is so American
ir.ed that he Is soon ono of ns, You know
that Is characteristic of the western peoplewhole-hearted
We are leaving such good neighbors.
We havo not kept 'the path hot between
us, neither have we ever had occasion
to quarrel. Sympathy is one of tho best
. Omaha! I nm going to miss you, with
your smoky sky, your' muddy drinking
water, your noisy trains, your big brew
eries, your careless conductors, who tako
my rural visitors from one to ten blocks
beyond my street.
The coffee parties, characteristic of
our foreign friends, where I nlwaya ate
too much cake. I will miss those happy
And tho graves of dear ones that hnvo

keep us all under the shadow of his wings.
The train Is moving. Goodbye, dear old

SOUTH OMAHA, May 1. To the Ed
itor of The Bee: When Wilson and
Bryan rushed the United States navy
Into, tho harbor of Vera Cruz, after giv
ing the Mexican Indians and half-breeds
forty-eight hours within which time to-
salute the American flag, they showed
how Inconsistent- Is their-position, in try
ing to get All the naHonspf . tho earth
to agrc tb arhltrat"theln, .differences
with a -view, of preventing war in tho
future. After their show of Inconsls
tency before thr whole world, they are
not apt to get very far with their peace
proposals. Preparations have been mado
for a war on a glgantlo scale, as-If we
, were going to battlo with some great
nation Instead of with a torn and bleed
ing' people who are nearly prostrate nt
our feet from wara Incessantly waged
among themselves for 100 years. Instead
of protesting against tho murder of
American citizens and tho destruction of
their property in northern Mexico and
instead of trying to protect them in their
property rights all tho venom and spleen
of Wilton and Bryan havo been spent
upon Huertii because they did not like
lluerta, oven though all American citi
zens In his part of Mexico wero compara
tively safo in their lives and property.
For one, I do not approve of the way
lluerta gained control In Mexico, for he
Is guilty of cold-blooded murder, and so
aro the rebels in northern Mexico. But
the half civilized "people of Mexico need
n dictator to keep them under control,
for under any other kind of rulera they
run riot with murder nnd revolutions
How Inconsistent for Bryan to demand
tho giving up of tho Philippines when
they aro no morrf lit to govern them
selves than are tte Mexicans today, and
then rush Into Mexico because of some
fancied insult to the American flag
when some saBors were arrested for a
few minutes, if the cn'se was Impartially
Investigated It mtiht be found that the
sailor? from our", own ships my havo
caused the trouble themselves. Some
people may think It Is treason to talk
any such thing, but even salora are apt
to "Weak loose" when they are given
the freedom of the shore. There was a
time, not many years ago, when the
father of Wilson would not salute '.ho
United Btates flag, but Instead was
shooting at It to destroy that emblem of
liberty. When I made that statement to
a government Inspector a few days ago
he Bald that WSIson'a father simply re
fused to salute tho northern flag. I In
dignantly told him that there Is no
northern flag; that the only flag we .have
is the t'nlted States flag.
This great nation. In Its power and
majestic position among the nations ot
the earth, should have shown a little
more ot the spirit of peace and good will
toward the Mexicans, even with lluerta
In command. When we went Into the
Philippines we carried a rifle In one hand
and, school books In the other, .but that
Is Ao what we are dolpg In Mexico. We
are' simply going to lorce mem to nave
peace within their borders, even though
It b contrary to the nature of the Mex
ican Indians, and we will force them to
have peace with our cannon and bayonets.
It does not look well for the people of
this great nation to welcome war and
especially when the announced cause Is
so trivial. The ministers or the gospel
preach "Peace on Earth, Good Will to
All Men." during Christmas time and
tlnn tour months after that advocate
war'upon a helpless people at our doors
because of a drunken brawl between
some privates when on shore. Had the
republican party remained united In 1912.
as It should have done, we Mould not now
have the son of a rebel chaplain as dic
tator of this great nation and demand
ing that half-clvlllzed people salute our
fUg,,when only a tew years ago his pol
ished and educated father not only re
fused to salute the flag, but would have
trampled It In the dust had he had the
chance. Call this waving the bloody
shirt If you want to.
The lnconilstenclea ot the democratle
party are many. ' P. A. AGNBW.
Where Trouble Started
Mexico's Oil Metropolis
Is a Real Live Wire.
Attractive Mliles of Tampleo,
Trouhle pushed the button at Tampleo. but
switched Its business to Vera Cruz. The loss Is Tam
pleo s. for Irstead of eafeguardlng life and property
In Vera Cruz under the American flag, the federals
and rebels arc battling In their peculiarly fierce way
for supremacy In the oil metropolis of tho republic.
In normal times Tampleo boasted a population of
S.000, or 10.0CO less than Vera Cruz, but with resources
and prospects unequaled by any gulf port of Mexico.
Though seven miles from the ocean, on the Panuco
river, the deepened channel and Jettled mouth en
able ocean steamers to deck at the city's water
front and load or dlschargo cargo without lighterage
coat. Soven regular lines of steamers ply between
Tampleo and New York, Mobile, New Orleans, Galves
ton, Texas City, Havana, Kuropean ports, Progrcso,
and the southern seaboard cities of the Mexican gulf.
The custom house and fiscal wharf were con
structed at a cost of $3,000,000. The custom house is
1,000 feet long by 150 feet wide, of pressed brick, with
cut stone trimmings, and stands on piles of which
C.000 wero used under a foundation of cement con
crete. The fiscal wharf, J.XSO feet long, Is constructed
of steel cylinders filled with cement concrete, sunk
thirty fect below the river bed, driven full of piling
sixty feet In length, tho space above the piling being
filled with cement concrete. The suprstructure Is of
steel, covered with a cement floor. Five ocean-going
steamers can llo alongside tho wharf .at the same
time, loading and unloading from shlpslde to cars.
Practically all the Import and export tonnage for
more than half of Mexico, geographically, passes
through tho port of Tampleo. Tampleo has a good
system of water works, sewerage, paving, electric
lights nnd street cars.
Nowhere else on tho Atlantic coast of America
has there been wrought within the last few years so
marvelous a change as at. Tampleo., No' one can
appreclato tho improvements there so thoroughly as
those who go down to the .sea In ships, who do, busi
ness on the great waters.
. The fisheries at Tampleo are remarkably fine. and
present admlrablo 'opportunities for the establishment
of canning factories to supply the homo market,. which
depends on Europe and the United States. As tho fish
are abundant, this Industry could be carried on dur
ing tho entire year.
Tho best sport fishing on the gulf Is .found" here.
Tarpon, red snapper, Jowflsh, Jackflsh, tea bass,
pompano, sawfish rind shark all abound. Tho best
season is from Novepibcr 1 to May 1, when the flsh
orman Is certain of catching as many of the tarpon
or "silver kins" as his strength and skill will allow;
not like the partially flshed-out bays and estuaries
of Florida and Texas, where patience to hook the
fish, and not the ability to land him, Is the principal
requisite of the successful fisherman. Guides, tackle,
boatft, etc., can all bo procured, as more -people are
coming every year to take advantage of the fine fish
ing, Immediately tributary to Tampleo Is the beautiful
and fertile Huasteca region. This region has hardly
begun to show what It can do. Notwithstanding Us
great natural advantages, only a small fraction of
It has been brought under cultivation. A few scat
tered villages, hero and there a ranch, an occasional
coffe patch, a few orange nnd lemon groves, and
small plots of corn, beans, tobacco and fibre, and a
little sugar cane may bo seen there, but they merely
show tho possibilities of this region.
Mrxlen Second City.
Guadalajara Is the second city In the republic In
population and tho first In beauty. Population, 120,000;
elevation. 5.063 feet. The capital Is much larger, but
there are people who think Guadalajara Is more beau

The talk turned to the professional beggar the
other night, and B. B, Comer of Alabama told of an
Incident that happened in a metropolitan city.
A party named Smith was going down the street
one afternoon, Mr. Comer, said, when he was ap
proached by a beggar who looked like a cross be
tween a ton of misery and a comic valentine.
"Excuse me, sir,'1 plaintively said the beggar,
"couldn't you glvo me the price of a small sand
wich? I haven't tasted food for two days."
Smith, feeling sorry for the poor specimen, gave
him a nickel and went on down the street. Suddenly
he remembered that he had passed a place where he
Intended to stop, and turned back, He was Just In
time to see tho beggar comlfig ou of a saloon.
"Look here, you gink!" heatedly cried Smith. "You
told me that you hadn't tasted food for two days,
and yet you took tho money that I gave you to buy
"Yes, sir," was the calm rejoinder of the beggar,
"but I hadn't tasted beer for two and a halt days"
A Hound of SvrttchlnK.
The talk' topic at a recent social session awlfcKed
to the rising generation, when Joseph E. WKIard,
the new minister to Spain, looked up with an amused
smile. He said he was reminded of an Incident that
happened In a country school.
"Some time ago a small boy played truant, and
when he got back on the Job next day he handed the
following note to the teacher:
" 'Dear Teacher Please excuse James for not be
ing nt school yesterday, and don't lick him, The boy
he skipped school with licked him, and the man they
threw atones at licked him, and the man whose dog ,
they chased licked him, and the driver whose cart they '
climbed on licked him, and when his father cave home
he licked him. He thinks he will attend regularly In I
the future. Yours, '
