New Farm of Contraband.
Great Britain's Imperial cauncll has issued
another order, dealing with the question of con
traband, that will further complicate its rela
tions with neutrals, and moot certainly will ag
gravate the friction already existing. All gold
and silver, paper money, negotiable instruments
snd realisable securities, have been declared
absolute rontrsbsnd. Tb purposo of this order
la plain enough, It Is intended to further m
t'srrsss the commercial Intercourse of neutral
nations with England's enemies, and will sup
plement the embargo lsld on sea traffic, For
many months complaints hare been beard and
direct charges msd' thst remittances bave
been Intercepted In malls going through tbe
censor's hands, even checks of United states
officials not being exempt from selxure, so the
r.ew order will serve to authorize a practice
already established Ift connection with the ex
amination of private correspondence passing
through the malls, It will also raise another
very serious diplomatic question,
The convention of Geneva aa to the exemp
tion of malls from selxure and search wss not
subscribed to In Its entirety by Great Britain,
but the question of confiscation of private funds
has never heen raised. Tbe rtgbt to seize con
traband passing through tha mails In parcels
post Is not denied, but tbe extension of this
rlfcht to Include money and tbe like will give
the whole mstter of sanctity of mails a new In
tret, The disposition lo disregard all neutral
rights Is growing rs!.hr than diminishing.
Great Britain's course Is snd bss been ex
tremely Irrltsble to the neutrals, and is not
more apt to establish sympathy than Is the
German submarine campaign.
How Many Votes in Oar Nebraska Primary I
Much speculation Is being Indulged ss to
the probsble number of votes that will be polled
In tbe coming Nebraska primary. The returns
from lows, Minnesota, Illinois and Michigan,
where prlmsrles have already been held, Indi
cate a very small participation, but If. Is hardly
fair to take theni sa pointers for Nebraska for
the reason thst In those slates nothing but the
ct ntest for convention delegstea hss been In
vclved, while here we are not. only choosing
ftflegsfes, but Also nominating a full set of
state, leglslstlve, judicial and county tickets.
Furthermore, this la the first time that the Ne
btaska primary will bave Included all the
ectlva offices formerly divided with off-year
cnmpalgns, but now consolidated through the
adoption of biennial elections,
Four yesrs ago the total primary vote In Ne
braska wus approximately 126,000, of which
77,000 wss cast on tho republican side and
47,000 on the democratic side. While much
will depend on weather conditions, still, with
I be additional offices on tbe ticket, the total
this year should not fall short of whst It was
four years ago, and It seems to us reasonable
to expect a republican vote of between 75,000
and 00,000 and a democratic vote approximat
Carranza Getting; Bad Advice.
Benor C'srranr.a hss been listening to some
very bad advice, from a source as yet undis
closed. He gives evidence of this by asking
Ms great snd good friend at Washington to de
sist from further efforts to overhaul I'ancho
Villa and to withdraw American troops, leaving
the further pursuit of tha bandit to tbe Mexi
can "government." Csrranug has already made
Mn record as a pacifier, and tbe result was tbe
n assacre of sleeping Americana at Columbus.
His feeble efforts at government have brought
nr thing of service to his people, unless it be
the punitive expedition now In progress, The
American troops hsve dona more to quiet Chi
huahua and to establish order in the few days
they have been there than tbe Csrranlstas
have achieved in years. Their presence has
been of immense advantage to the first chli-X,
If be only had the gumption to realize what is
kofng on r.bout him. He would do far better lo
hrartlly co-operate with General Pershing and
get tbe Villa business closed up as soon as pos
sible. Then he will see the American soldiers
retire and leave him In command of a country
be never can control.
The people of Omaha have an opportunity
presented to secure a man on the Water board
vboas tra'nlng and experience make his aerv
Ices valuable far beyond the compensation of
the office. We refer to Oeofge L, Cainpcn,
formerly assistant city engineer of Omaha, and,
before that, city engineer of Lincoln and engi
neer In charge of public works at Panama. In
these rspacillea, he hss had to solve problems
of hydraulics, engineering, construction and
operation, which none of the present members
t f the board have had. In addition, he pna
srsaes familiarity with the problems of munici
pal lighting, gained from constructing snd
operating tba municipal lighting plsnt lt Mu
tt. In, hlctt would come Into play In the event
thst Oinsha goes into the lishiinx business,
Atlils from his professional shlliiy, which hsa
,rn recognised by membership in the American
ftcciety of Civil Engineers, hla blah standing
as a bualneaa man and dependable cltlieo Is st
tested by all who have been In contact with aim,

Tho who sre In poelon of the

This Is not th first attack. When they
cannot use th wet snd dry propoaltlon,
they resort to the danominatlonal quee

THE FINISH IS
Endurance is as important in
a typewriter as in an athlete.
Many a runner starts out looking fit, but
after a lap or two, falls behind and is "all in" at
the finish of the race.
So it is with typewriters. Some of them
do good work at the start, but under the strain
of continued use lose the close adjustments
necessary to produce neat, clean cut typewriting.
They fail before they reach the home stretch.
The L. C. Smith & Bros, typewriter
will run the ordinary course, come in strong
at the finish and be ready for another race.
One of the reasons for this is the ball bearings
found in all much used parts. Constant use can
only make them run smoother and "sweeter."
The L. C. Smith &. Bros, typewriter is
as good at the finish as at start.
