t.reotings to the new L'nlon Depot recruit.
Welcome to the World-Herald, at last Join
ing The Be In the movement to secure ade
ouate passenger accommodations for Omaha
from the railroads.
It In no way affecta us that the World
Herald now tries to make out that It was the
"original" t'nlon Depot champion.- All the
Omaha newspapers have, at one time or an
other, pointed out the need of up-to-date sta
tion facilities, but It remained for The Bee to
ae that the time waa bow ripe for persistent
and affective agitation. Our readers will re
member that at the very start of this agitation
several weeks ago, we Issued an open Invitation
to our contemporarlea to come on In with us,
assuring them that the succesa would bring
"glory enough for all." We welcome tha
World-Herald's acceptance of this invitation,
even though tardy, and we renew it for the
third newspaper, which we hope will yet wake
up to the fact that the demand for a new Union
Depot Is real and that the people of Omaha
are In earnest about it.
To show our good faith, we repeat what the
World-Herald says very pointedly In reinforcing
The Bee'a argument:
Over 1,000,000 passengers pass through Omaha each
year, not counting the local travel, and It la certain
that tharo la nothing In their flrat glimpse of our
terminals to causa anything hut rejoicing In the fact
that they don't hava to disembark hare.
It la positively up to tha Omaha railroads to dj
something and to do It quick! The hard-times allhl
which has been found so useful by them for soma
years will not answer now they have mora business
than they know how to handle.
Tha transportation llnea are constantly yelling
for fair play, and Omaha will deal with them only
on that baaie fair play for the rallrnada, and th
same for this city.
A now Union Depot to equal anything possessed
by any other1 metropolis of the size ia the solution,
and there ahould ba no compromise.
We repeat alao that If all the factors and
fr.rces Interested In the upbuilding of Omaha,
take vlgoroas hold for a new Union Depot, the
rallroade wilt not be able to stand out very long.

will also be called upon to vote for two presi
dential electors-at-large and one presidential
elector from his congressional district. He will
likewise vote for four delegates-at-large and a
Ilka number of alternates to represent bla party
in Its national convention. I j will alao vote
for one national committeeman for the political
party with which he affiliates.
These are the offices and positions to be filled
at this primary in addition to and distinct from
those that appear on the ordinary off-year pri

Contrasts in Mexico.
Pictures In strong contrast are Just now
being shown in Mexico. The people, misunder
stood on this and misrepresented on the other
side of the border, coming into contact with the
soldiers In General Pershing's expedition, are
getting a better first-hand knowledge of Amer
icans. They are beginning to understand the
friendly nature of the call, to know that a wide
difference exists between the soldiers of the
United Statea and the banditti who have mas
queraded as soldiers for years in Chihuahua.
With thla understanding Is growing up a con
fidence that means much for future relations.
On the other hand, Carransa by his dilatory
methods Is hampering the movement, and is
showing a most unfriendly attitude. Pretend
ing to preserve his dignity, and the integrity
ot his country, which were never threatened,
hr Is In fact aiding Villa and his crew of mur
derers to make good their escape by haggling
over the use of the railroads needed to handle
supplies for the American troopa and thus ren
der their activity the more efficient. This at
titude is characteristic of the man, who has
been described as "the most misunderstood
man In Mexico;'' misunderstood because Ameri
cans are unable to grasp the sweep of his in-
gtatltude, the narrowness of bla nature, or the
pettiness of his conduct.
the marvel will alwaya be how a man of Car
rrnxa's quality waa ever able to bam boo tie the
president of the United Statea into the miser
able intrigue that la now becoming apparent.
Some day, perhaps, the agencies that have ao
far concealed themselves behind the "first
chief" will be forced into the open, and thus
clear up what la now a puisle.
Water Power and Politics.
The streams of the west, and especially
those of Nebraska, are at last to be utilised.
They are being made to serve the purposes of
the politicians, who hope to float Into office on
the rippling waters of the rlvera that flow from
mountain to sea. This is not a new thing, no
tewer than the discovery that running water
may be made useful by turning Us energy into
power, and transforming that power into light
and heat and other forms for man'a uses.
These streams have flown across Nebraska for
unnumbered ages, but only lately have they be
come serviceable to the politician. Now, in
lieu ot another Issue, they are being paraded
with much pomp and display for the bewilder
ment of voters who may be momentarily blinded
by the dazzling display of words and imposing
array ot flgurea back of which lurk the selfish
offlce-aeekera. The economic features ot the
problem are entirely Ignored by the schemers
who are busy at befooling the people. The water
power of Nebraska has been looked Into very
carefully by experts, and examined from every
angle and to the full extent of Ita possibilities.
It does exist, and Is now available, but it has
not been developed by private 'capital, for the
sole reason that It has not presented a suf
ficiently attractive field. The salvation ot Ne
braska, happily, doea not depend on the aud
denly discovered condition over -which such a
pow-wow Is being held.

New Tork Times' Wsshlngton Correspondence: i
Representative Simeon V. Fesa, an Ohio republican
and supporter of ex-Benator Burton for the presi
dential nomination. Inadvertently caused a demon
stration In tha house today (March 26) by mentioning
tha name of Associate Justice Charles K. Hughes
of the I'nlted Ktatee supreme court. Many members
on tho republican side of the chamber Interrupted tha
Ohio congressmen by applauding for neatly a minute.
Mr. Pees referred to Juetire Hngnea during the
debate on the literacy test provision of tha Burnett
Immigration bill. In reply to a speech by Repre
sentative O'Bhsughneasy of Rhode Island. Mr. Fesa,
who was formerly a college president, spoke of the
founding of Brown college, from whloh came Horace
Mann, E. Benjamin Andrews, Charles E. Hughes, and
other famoua educators and statesmen.
As Mr. Fees reached the name of Justice Hughes
the applause suddenly swept over the republican side,
and the Ohio member stood In rather embarrassed
fashion, attempting to proceed. Just at that moment
the time of the Ohloan expired. He aaked for one
minute additional, which was allotted y Representa
tive Burnett, In charge ot the Mil.
"Is Justice Hughes now placed In nomination
asked Representative Oal!aher of luinote.
I will say more about that If he gets to be preel-
dent," said Mr. Feas. Again the applause broke out.
It was the first time that the name ot tha ex-gov
ernor of New York had been mentioned In house de
bate since the movement was begun to make htm
tha presidential nominee. The republican applause
was so loud and persistent that members rushed In
from the closk rooms snd corridors to seeertaln the
cause of the demonstration.
Mr. Fess supported the literacy teat provision of
the Burnett bill, but when he was allowed an addi
tional minute of time Mr. Burnett facetiously re
marked :
"I am not yielding time to the gentleman to make
presidential nomination."
"Then I withdraw the nomination." aald Mr. Fees,
while the democrata laughed.
Jodarsblp w0 le the Way.
Bt I.011U Globe-Democrat: People who profess to
sea perils to the Judiciary In the acceptance of the
presidential nomination by Justice Hughes overlook
the ressons for the republican clamor for Hughes.
It is not Hughes the Judge hla admirers wtett to
nominate, but Hughea the republloan statesman.
There Is no decision of his whloh la likely to be an
Issue In the coming campaign. There have been
times when a supreme Judge and hla attitude were
an Issue In politics. Jefferson died without his bit
terness against John Ma renal 1 softening. Jackson
made one of Marshall's decisions an Issue la his sec
ond campaign, saying: "tt the people decide who Is
right." Roger B. Taney's personality became in
volved In the political controversy ever the Dred
Bcott dec ision. Halmon P. Chase waa ready to accept
a democratic presidential nomination against Grant.
Tha vote of Oeorge Phlras on the Income ts wss a
side Issue of tha campaign of IB The dissenting
opinion of John M. Harlan as to "the rule of reason"
was one of tha features of the last presidential cam
paign. Thee have been ttanee and there may be
times again when the decislona of the eupreme eourt
will be political Issues. Although no Juatloe has ever
been nominated for president, there is a possibility
that some one may try U and that ha may write
opinions to win popular applause. But the people
can attend to such a demagogue. If one ever appears.
There Is not the slightest element of this m the
clamor for Hughes. Hla aloofness from the party
fight ot 191!. due to his position and not to polltloal
cowardice. Is a great asset. No man big enough for
president remained neutral In that struggle. If he
waa actively In politics. Even In 111 many , repub
licans turned hopeful eyes on Hughes, In the tnld"t
of the turmoil. He Is not an unknown, except that,
he haa not chattered about our foreign relatione. But
his fine sense snd splendid Americanism, manifested
during his political career, may be depended upon.
The republicans will give their views en all quea
tlons proper for treatment In a national platform
and there Is no doubt but what they win meet wun
the approval of Hughes, whether he becomes a can
didate or not. His acta and utteraneee while gov
ernor and his marvelous speeches In the 1908 cam
paign proved him a thorough republican.
Aimed at Omaha

Nebraska City Press: Reporters on metropolitan

Wsajld RestrwJw War Adreeatea.
tha Editor of The Bee: Do the roaseee
of Americans want Intervention? Bin Is
the cause of the European war. Cove
tousneee for more territory, greater
wealth or more power are the causes of
all ware, which could be avoided. We as
people of the Vnlted Wstes hsve a vague
Idea of the Intense misery, surfering ana
hardships and death caused by this colos
sal war. "When we read how large cities
are being destroyed with their homes by
the tens of thousands, hushsnds and sons
gone and very likely dead: women with
out any support, food or clothing and
their little ones the same, and cast to
the four winds of the earth.
In the face of all ot thla as undoubted
fscts we read constantly of men, who
are thinkers, advocating and urging In
tervention or war on Mexloo. Our presi
dent and his cabinet are taxing their
brains to honorably keep out of a strug
gle with these people.
We greatly question If these 'spark"
klndlers of war sincerely hsve the true
spirit of patriotism at heart or whether
It le the almighty dollar: and H Is a ques
tion If these very ones would volunteer,
and, If drafted, would hire a substitute at
almost any prloe. Do they not see the
awful loss of Ufa, misery and pain, be
sides the billions of money which must
follow? I for one would like to see our
congress enact measures of stringent
nature to govern these war advocates.'
I believe there Is plenty of Justice In
the breasts of the American people to de
mand war and that In due time.

Editor of The Bee: My attention 'has Juat

The Bee In connection with the Kennedy
meeting held here gave me as authority
for the statement that Brown county re
publics ns were solid for Kennedy. The
Item said: "I told Mr. Aldrtch when he

Now, In the first place, Governor Ald

said nothing of that kind ever. I met Mr.
Kennedy last week when he was here
and found him a pleasant gentleman. I
also met a press representative who waa
with him, but to neither of these gentle
men did I say anything like the above.
I did say that Mr. Kennedy had many
friends In Brown county, as he has. And
I am sura he will get a good vote here.
But I did not aay that I was for him.
If he la nominated at the primaries I will
take great pleasure In voting for him In
November, but In the primaries I am for

satisfactory In ita ending, no results

At the beginning ot the present seaston
of congrese oertain things were urged
upon congress by the executive, and his
party agreed that they should take prece
dence to all other matters. Three months
has now elapsed and oongreas Is about
where it atartad on these matters of Im
portance. Such la the obstructive ability
of a group In congress of a pacifist class
who seem to be led by eur Nebraaka
friend, the late secretary of atate. This
person, while professing the greatest con
sideration for his former chief, has done
nothing te advanoe legislation alnce leav

Promptness to action should have been
the watchword, because of the crl'l al

In, and grave consequences may resit if
action Is not speedy.
In dealing with the Mexican situation.
by delay much trouble baa already been
experlanoed and It cannot now be esti

only tell. The recent raid into United

dally headache that appeared soon after
breakfast, and stayed for lunch and sup
per. My sleep, after the houra ot suffer
ing, wss broken and gave me no real
rest I had no energy, was tired all the
time, and life waa Just long daya of dis
content. "In the hope of Improving I began the
diet of boiled milk and boiled eggs. And
I was faithful. For weeks I kept this
diet and I did Improve some under It,
but I waa not being cured, I realised.
"Now my stomach la a great deal bet
ter. I can eat almost anything without
111 effects. I am too thankful to depart
from plainly cooked food yet, however.
But my appetite Is good, my sleep is
sound and refreshing, and my housework
Is no longer an Irritating, difficult task.
"The reason? I have taken Teniae, the
Master Medicine. So why should I
hesitate to recommend It to anyone or
everyone who suffers aa I did?"
