Is It Substantial Compliance?
With Ihe receipt of tbe latent German note,
tho all-abHorbing qucntion becomes, "Is It a
suliHtautial compliance with the demands em
bodied in President WIlHon's ultimatum?"
To give this iiuestion due consideration, we
niuat go bacli to tho original docuuicot). The
pi Lit of the president's pronunclamento to Ger
many Is contained In this declaration:
"If It la fit IT! the purpose of Ihe Imperial govern
ment (o prosecute rclrhllcsa and liidU'-rliiilnat
warfare aaalnut veaeela of commerce hy tin use of
euhitiarlnea without regard to what the government

Immediately dci-lai and effect an abandonment of
llg present Dielhoda of guhmarlne warfare against
panarngar and ftelalil rarying" veaaelH, the govern
ment of tha t'nlted ritatea can have rm choice hut to
aaver diplomatic relallona with lha Herman empire
What, in tho view of the United Htstes, are
"tbe sacred and indisputable rules of Interna
tional law," referred to, whs further defined In
the memorandum prepared by Secretary Lan
sing, of which an official explanation' was made
public a few days later:
"There miiat be no attacks without warning upon
merchant whips, even If they are armed, nnleea Ilia
commander of the warahlp h ahaolnta knowledga
lint tho merchantman la under mandatory order
from Ha government to act offenelvely, Tha mere
prcHonce of armament on a ahlp la declared not to
ha at i j. tt evidence hm would Jnnilfy an altack with
out warning or without regard to tha right of per
aona on hoard. Only when It la Impoaalhla to iku
the captured enemy merchantman Into port may It
ha gunk, and In auch cga tha persona on board muat
be put In a place of safely,"
The position of tbe German government on
this crucial subject is now to be found on the
new order get forth in the present note as bar
ing been given to the German naval forces:
"In accordance with tha genaral principles of
visit and search and the destruction of merchant
Vessels recognised by International law, such vessels,
both within and without tha area declared a naval
war gone, shall not b sunk without warning and
without saving human lives unless tha ship attempt
to escape or offer resistance."
This order, however, it must be observed,
Is not unconditioned. Its continuance . Is de
pendent on the United States in good faith
endeavoring to require other belligerent
governments to accept the principle "of
the freedom of tbe seas," as contended for by
Germany. "Should steps taken by the govern
ment of the United States not attain the object
It desires to bave tbe laws of humanity followed
by all belligerent nations," says the note, "the
German government would then be facing a new
situation In which It must reserve to itself com
plete liberty of decision.
We must confess tnat the note Is sufficiently
dlplomatlo to permit of construction one way or
the other, according to blss or desire. The
Oerman sympathizer will surely insist It is all
and more than the United States has a right to
expect and those favorable to the allies will
deny that it makes any concession worth con
sidering. But the president bss tbe last word and
while, perhaps, It Is well to wait for tbe official
communication, he should, at all events, either
Bey frankly that the assurance Is sufficient and
accepted, or recall our ambassador without
further parley. If be accepts the answer as
satisfactory, he should follow It up by an asser
tion of the rlguta of neutrals as against all the
The Hollii Land Loan Bill.
The measure Just driven through the senate
by tbe Wilson administration, under pretense
of providing a land loan bill for the benefit of
the farmers, will not relieve tbe pressure on the
agricultural industry by making its financial
operations any the more facile. In effect the
bill will provide a safe and attractive Invest
ment for money by authorizing the Issuance of
debenture bonds, secured by first mortgage on
Improved farm lands. These bonds will be
more attractive than any now known, for they
will carry a higher rate of interest than the
government pays, will be readily convertible
and almost totally guaranteed by the govern
ment. Devices and provisions for the safety of
the Investor are su pea-perfect.
But the farmer will not get his money any
cheaper. The proposed rate does not give htm
the advantage afforded the jobber or manufac
turer under the federal reserve law, nor can he
take his credits to the lend bank and secure a
loan on tbem. He must go with clear land,
under use and productive, with an unencum
bered title, and then will be allowed but 60 per
cent of its appraised valuation on a long-time
mortgage. Nothing in the bill will operate to
aid tbe little fellow, the farmer struggling to
clear his title, to Improve his farm or to finance
his operations until he can msrket his produce
at a pront.
No measure proposed by the present admin
istration In Its program fslls farther short of
Its purpose than does this makeshift, lis worst
effect will be to discourage the farmers of the
country in their budding efforts towsrd financ
ing their on affair. Instead of a law that
would permit the establishment of co-operative
banks that would aid tbe farmer, the Holds bill
simply shifts the farm mortgage busines from
prhs's stencle to bank that wll sltll operate
for prtvst profit, but with the sdvsntagtt of

Inside Story of Mexico
rtiUaader C. Knox,
Address by rormsr iaoretary of State.
T h lieen Asserted time and HtjHin hy I lie apohj
glels for the demuciath- blundering In Mexleo that'
freslHent Wilson Inherited the Mexican situation
from President Ta't. Nothing could be further from
the truth then this statement, as a review of the situ
ation will conclusively disclose.
Whan I'rasldent Tsft assumed office on March 1,
iwe, Meslco wig at peace. Her credit a good; her
coffer filled; hr Industries thriving, and Porfirlo
nial, who had been constitutional president of tho
republic since Lcrto da Tejada, seemed fair for the
remainder of his life to preside over the destinle of
the land he had done so much lo free from the em
pire of Maitmlllsn, set up by a coallllon of lOuio
The Maderi revolution broke out snmo two yeg-g
later gnd resulted In driving lilaa from power. Al
though tha Mgdero regime was recognized by Ihe
I'nlted Hlates and other powers, It was not accepted
by powerful factions In Meilcn. riehellloit against
Its authority was almost coincident wllli Its birth,
and finally, In Kehrusry, 1DH, llenenil Kellx Dltu
carried tho war aKalnet Madero to the sireela of rh
capital city ItHelf,
tVhen It wna apparent (hat Madero's downfall wa
Imminent. It was initde certain by Ifuerta and a por
tion of the army going over to I Una, who then seiised
tha palace and on February 10, 1013, F'ranclsco I.
Madero nd Joee M. I'lno Huares raelgnrd as presi
dent and vie president, respectively. Their resig
nations went In writing, the copies were transmitted
to foreign powers sustaining dlplomatlo relatlong
with tha republic, slid also to Ihe Meilcitn cnngTcsi
elected at. the same time thst Madero was elected
president, Ihe election having taken place suhse.
(uetit to the aueeesa of Ihe Maderu revolution.
Of course, Ktanelsco Madero resigned under the
compulsion of tha revolution led by Felix rla, Jut
a I'nrflrlo Mas hai gbdlra'ed shortly before under
lha compulsion of tha revolution led hy Kranelsro
Madero. Put there wag nothing startling, unusual
or un-MeTrtren In that faot. Inirlng a period of
forty years preceding Porfirlo Dial's accession to tha
presidency there bed been some thirty odd govern
ment In Mealeo presided over by seventy odd Indi
viduals. Renilhl people have no Illusion shout tha
stability of government In Mexico.
When Madero resigned on February 1!, 191!, the
minister of foreign affalrg under the Mexican rnjistl
tutlon hers ma president. Thl was Tedi o Iuraln.
II appointed Oenersi Huerta minister of war. The
minister of foralgn affair then resigned and th
offlr itavolved upon Huerta and this wa on Febru
ary J9, 1913. It ia important to mark these date.
It has been attempted, with a great measure of
suocess, to make the American people believe that
Huerta became president (h rough Madero' death.
Perhaps 00 per cent of Intelligent American so un
derstand it. Put thl Is not true. Huerta became
president through Madero'g and taacuraln' resig
nations. Madero's death did not occur until gome
day later as a radial of the sequence of events will
now make clear; February IS, the government of
Madero w overthrown; February 19, Madero re.
Igned; February 1, Huerta become provisional pres
ident; February M, about midnight, Macjero wa
killed while being transferred from the palac to th
Thug Hiaerv became provUdonal president of
Mexico, February H, 191. Mr. Taft ceaaed to b
president of the fnlted Htatea March 4. 191. There
were thug twelve gays within which President Taft
could hav extended recognition. Why did he nof
de goT It wag the Judgment of the diplomats repre
senting foreign eountrle In Mexico that the provi
llonal government In Mexico had been Installed In
compliance with the Mexican constitution and Mex
ican precedent and that ! speedy recognition would
b helpful In restoring normal conditions throughout
the country. The American ambassador shared thl
view and asked for Instructions. General Carranza,
who at that time was governor of on of the Mex
ican states, had officially Informed thl government
of his sdherence to the new government; the Mexl.
can congress and court had reoognlxed Its authority
and ad Woes from other dlplomatlo and consular offi
cer Indicated a very general adherence to It author
ity throughout the republic. '
The main quetlon Involved In determining; whether
or not to recognize a government seeking recognition
are the: I the reiueetlng government able to
dispose er comply with the rules of International lawT
Will It reapect the obligation of treaties and the eth
ical rulee of comity observed by self-respecting Hi
tlers Will It recognise, respect and protect tha
rlghtg'of foreigners residing within Its border? In
view of the unhappy experience of the preceding two
years In dealing with the Madero administration In
our effort to protect Americans In Maxlco snd to
adjust diplomatically Important national questions at
Issue with the Mexican government. It waa deemed
expedient to ask gome assurances upon these sub.
J acts. As to all these question we requested Huerta
and hla government for some assurances ef their
speedy and satisfactory adjutment and while await
ing bis reply the twelve days slipped away. Mr.
Taft ceased to ba president; Mr. Wilson assumed of
fice and this la why the Taft administration did net
What Mr. Wllaon Inherited from Mr. Taft was
an outstanding unanswered dlplomatlo request to the
da facto government at Mexico City for definite a,
surances for the security of American right and
lha adjustment of American claim a a preliminary
to the consideration of the question of recognition.
What Mr. WUson did waa to repudlste the policy of
hi predecessor In thia as in alt ether things and
create a situation that made tha adjustment of Amer
ican rights Impossible.
The revolution with which the Taft administra
tion bad to contend were of comparatively ahort du:.
atlon while there has been In Mexico practically
aver since Mr. Wilson came In and refused to recna;.
nli Huerta continuous anarchy. There was never n
time during the Taft administration when there was
net In Mexico City a government reeofnlsed In a
large rft "f Mexico and conducting Ita foreign re.

shortly before President Tsft went out, was rercg.

OMAHA. May &.-To the Kdltor of Tha
Bee: I noticed an article recently In your
paper In which tho Recreation board we
crlticsed for the manner In which It se
leeled candidates to tak examination
for position as playground supervisors,
signed by two men as officers of a
"Playground Club." They say th criti
cism Is not directed at the candidate
which the board selected, but glmply at
the manner In which they were chosen.
The fact I .these gentlemen are pro
testing at somebody's request, because
ihe selection waa not made entirely from
the students of the so-called "playground
institute." with which the Board of Rec
reation had nollilng whatever to do, It
being conducted by other parties. At th
outset, when the hoard's play director
proposed to hold this "Institute" under
the direction of th board, the member
thought it Inadvisable to do so, a It
would only create a host of dissatisfied
peophi that would be unable to secure
positions as playground supervisors. Th
fact Is, only twelve or thirteen are to b
ihoen and If the entire number were
to be given an examination the dissatis
faction would only be that much keener,
as no doubt 7S per cent of them would
prove o b of excellent qualifications.
However, what seems queer to me I
that the two gentlemen signing th above
referred to article are heard from the
first time In the history of Omaha on a
playground subject, and than In a crit
icising manner. They ssy they have been
working quietly for years to establish a
playground system In Omaha. Th people
of Omaha can easily believe this, is they
have been working so quietly that no one
ever knew that they were interested In
the matter of playground. Now, thin,
that Omaha has a creditable playground
system established, these gentlemen come
forward end knock th amt effort of
the officials In charge to build up the
