Time to Stop Temporizing.
The latent raid on Texas border towns by
Mexican bandit la an exhibition of the danger
continually present under exinting condition.
With no rei-!ionnlble authority anywhere In Mex
ico, eave In the amall are occupied by the
American troops, marauding band are both
numerous and desperate, Carranza' pretense
to government ba been thoroughly, expoed,
end the futility of hi effort dlopose of btm
even as an experiment. He ha proved weaker
even than wa thought, The question of the
political aspect of the mnrderou foray Into
the I'nited State doesn't much matter. We
have quite good reason for suspecting Car
ran.a of tacit consent to, If not complicity In,
(he movement , any one. yhe outstanding
fact are that Mexico ha no government, de
facto or otherwise, and that our relation with
it people cannot be maintained on friendly
fooling until peace along the border 1 assured.
Even the patient president should understand
tht the time for temporl(ng ha passed, and
that soiiin definite policy toward the trouble
some murderer and robber of Mexico should
In put. Into operation.
Income Tax on Foreigner.
American Investment banker have united
in a protest against the announced Intention of
tho government to collect Income tax on Amer
ican securities owned by foreigner. It I
uiged (hat this will affect the market abroad
for our securities by rendering them less at
tractive. Thl statement 1 true, but it doe
not make plain why the foreigner should be
exempt, from the tax, nor does any good reason
appear why extra inducement should be pre.
Mcnled to foreigner who are sought possible
Investor In our bond, stock or mortgages.
American securities have long been considered
a splendid Investment by the people of Europe,
and billions of dollars' worth sre now owned
there. Moreover, ss The Bee remarked some
month ago, Immense blocks of these securities
were purchased well below par and are now
selling t pr or well above, so that the holder
reaped a double profit on tho loan, (during In
our prosperity at lltt'e If any risk, The fact
that the British government agreed to accept
American securities at the market price In lieu
of gold on H own war loan Issue give a clue
to the standing of our credit, public and pri
vate, Many million of money are ent across
the ocesn each year to pay interest on these
securities, and out of this considerable reve
nue goe to the European government. Amer
ican securities sre quite likely to top the mar
ket for many year to come, and the foreign
owner I not entitled to speclul consideration.
He should pay hi share of the cost of keeping
up the government here.
Some Common-Sene Advice.
The experience of the long headed bulne
man I worth mora thsn the advice of the wise
acre theorist, so we print here some sober obser
vation made by our fellow townsman, W. W.
Bingham, who ha been, learning the vagarlc
of trade and Industry through more than a
third of a century of active business:
I'roapnci for a soixl crop ware never better
than now. HverytMng point to a prosperous year,
but there baa never linen a time In the history of
our emintry when Hie hualimas man should exercla
nmre rai ami judgment than now, Abnormal eon
rtllluna have rtiad a aharp advance In practically
all manufactured product. Price continue to
climb and speculation la ramiant on every side, A
cotiaervatlvo policy Insures aafldy. It'a a presiden
tial year also. Money uaually lightens up where
any doubt exleta as In a pnaalhlfl change tn the ad
ministration or in the policy of a new congreas. It's
belter to t) Safe than sorry. Nothing to worry
Shout, but knop the machine under control, '
' No fancy language Is used here, but there
Is a large kernel of homely truth which our
readers will do well to ponder over an' digest,
whether they like U or not.
Relies on Kaiser's Promises.
President Wilson signifies hi Intention of
allowing relation with Germany to rest on
pledges contained In the latest note from Ber
lin. In common with all Americans, he accepts
the promise of the kaiser at It face, and relies
upon him to make good. At the same time,
the president propose to take occasion to point
out that Germany cannot be permitted to dic
tate the relatione or policy of the United States
with any other tounliy, Neutrality would not
permit the pursuance of Hitch a course, even
should friendship or a desire lo please suggeKt
It. The I'nited Hlate Is pledged, and by Its
actions bus maintained that pleilKe, to defend
the rights of all neutrals, and the sharpnesa of
Its rontroery with Germany hss grown out of
this undertaking. Kncroachment by the allies
on neutral right have not been forRotten, al
though they have been in a coiihIiIpi able tnens
uie tivi -rshadowed by the German erlsl. If the
pew lie no. ui promise are lived up (o, we will
have more lime for dealing with (he Brlthh

Nebraska Press Comment
Aurora Republican: If railway tontmldaloner were
nninlnated under the old convention system It U Incon
ceivable that a candidate who could not command the
iupport of hla own county would he seriously consid
ered; If they wr appointed It Is scarcely probable
that any governor would care to eeaiime renponsibillry
for discharging a man of Henry riarkt' character
and qualification so lotjg as he could be Induced to
aarve, During Hie flist two or thiee year of ttg ex
istence, while the foundation wero being palh'titly
laid for defense of the freight, pasnenger and exprets
rate reduction laws paaaed by the legislature of 1M7,
th railway commission w persistently and sys
tematically harassed by newspaper that should have
been In better bunlnee. Although these attacks ha1 a
long sine beon silenced by the success thst crowned
th commission's efforts, few opportunities have been
hftglocted to reopen them along other line. If, as wa
uggeited by the Lincoln Journal In Its prematura poet
mortem, they had finally accomplished tdr purpose,
the people of Nebraska would be the losers and Henry
Clarke the gainer, personally, In the end. Appointed
originally, by (lovamor Hheldnn to fill a vacancy on
the newly created commission In 1907, Mr. Clarke threw
himself Into the work with all hi heart and soul, lie
had Just made a remarkablo record In the famous leg
Islatur of that year, being personally reeponslblH for
the tonnlnsl taxation and child labor laws, and hav
ing teken a full part In the support of all other pro
gressiva measures. Ill appointment wna onsolicitel
und unexpected, If ba twice since been elected with
out effort oh hi part. He ha conslsienlly adhered
to the old fashioned Idea that if his work wa (!
factory t would b endorsed: If not, he desired to bo
islleved. If ha earned recognition from hlrh author,
it y a one of the strongest railway commlsnloners In
the I'nited Hates. Personally he would have nothing
to fear from retirement; the future hold unlimited
possibilities for a man of hi capacity. It would b
Iriost deplorable, however, In the event of his defeat,
If pnper of the Lincoln .Journal' standard should
const rue the Incident a a rebuke to the commission
and a repudiation of the iplendld work It ha per.
formed, There will b little Incentive for eniHtnua
Hon of th effort which member and employe of
that body have put Into the public service If this !
to bo their reward.
Lincoln War: Another humiliation for Mr, Bryan.

republican could spare enough wet member to go

Orand Island Independent: How a farmer turned
the trick on a townsman wa told to The Independent
yesterday. Jt appear that a representative of tho
Htandard Oil comany, while traveling through the
country In a car, ran nut of gasoline. Ill only re
course was to apply at the nearest farm house, rind
when he did so the farmer admitted that h could
spar a half gallon of gasoline which wouhi bring
the stalled tourist to the nearest town, though the
supply wa limited and th demand Imperative, Tin
farmer charged the Htiimlnrd Oil man a half dollar
for the half gallon. Automobile men generally will
hop that the agent do not report th Proteus, and
It luccess to 30 Wall street, New York.
Lincoln Journal: Congratulation to th young peo
ple of Omaha who war married quietly In a country
town to avoid fusa and the strain Involved In a fash
ionable wedding. An old fashioned elopement may
not be a guarantee of happiness, but a wedding of
this kind hold out a good dual of hope In these days
of extravagance and social climbing.
Nellgh Eeader: Th defeat at the primaries of the
Rr.van faction of the democracy appear to have bean
complete, Th only en of hi favorite who may
have pulled through 1 Edgar Howard for lieutenant
governor. If the latter I nominated it I because
of hi own popularity among democrat and not on
account of the Bryan Influence. In spite of the re
pudiation of Bryan by hi own party In hi own
state It I announced he will be In attendance at
Hm national convention with a proxy and that he
has an ambition to writ tho national platform of hb
party. It waa.Juat because President Wilson and
hi frlond did not want Bryan to writ the plat
form that he wa left at home. With the divergence
of view of the two Mr, Wilson would cut a sorry
figure running for president on a platform writum
by W. J. Bryan.

OMAHA, May l.-To the Kditor of Th
Bee: In your issue of Monday morning
I nolle a communication from "A Hea
then," opposing the proposed ordinance
taxing cats. This letter ws evidently
written by one of those "who see, but
do not observe." Passing over hi In
sinuation thst, est only sousll ahout tho
time the rooster crows, the Ico man yll
at the house, the "discordant robin ' twit
ters end the festive newsboy cite hla
morning paper and that, so far a hi
fifty year of "observation" goe, cat
do not eat birds, I want to Py atten
tion to the suggestion he makes thst to
oV-stroy csts would be to rob "poor chil
dren" of their amusement and to sgy that
this Is, tn my mind, the greatest reason
for regulating cat. Any physician whl
tell you that est re one of the moot
prolific, carriers of germs of ll kind.
Their fur I soft end clinging; they, by
choice, keep off the open street so far
a possible; they frequent nsrrow alley
and by-ways; they crawl under shed and
shacks; they visit garbage cans and other
repositories of filth; are readily admitted
to many homes, and arc petted and fon
dled by children regardless of any die
ease th children my have; then go inte
other homes and are taken up by the
children and fondled end kissed with
"all their Imperfections" on their coat,
t have no doubt that If the truth were
known the Isle scarlet fever epldem'o
hero was greatly spread by this mean.
In a similar epidemic In my old town
I wa positively instructed by my family
physician to keep my children away from
all cats, even our own, and all cat
wy from the children. HI advice wa
simply common sense and was appre
ciated and followed,
I am by no mean a cat hater, but
consider children, even If only "whis
tling newsboys," of much greater Impor
tance than cat and am for "safety first'
hi this respect,
I m in sympathy with the Audubon
society on the point of bird protection,
for with nearly a long an experience a
"Heathen" I can confidently answer hi
"do they" by transposing It to "they do."
and I venture thst If he give hla honest
observation he has een oats kill more
birds thsn mice, utiles ihls observation
was confined to the time of night when
mice and not birds were ahroad in the
land, and he wa seeking slumber, not
when cats caterwaul, but when robins,
ce men and newsboy were on their
Job and the "rosy morn stood tip toe on
the mountain tops." A. L, TIMBL1N.

OF THOSE WHO WALK ALONE.
Itlchard Burton, in New York Mall,
Women there ar on earth, most sweet
Who luse their own, and Walk bereft
and lonely, .. .
Loving that one lost heart until they dl,
Loving It only.
And o they never se beside them grow
Children, whoso coming Is like breath
Consoled by subtler loves th angel
Through childless hours.
Good deeds they do; they comfort and
Jn duties other put off till the mor
row: Their look Is balm, their touch Is tender
ness To all In sorrow.
Betimes the world smiles at them, ss
This mslden guts, long after youth
Rut In God' Book they hear another
Faithful In life, and faithful unlo death.
Htu h souls. In sooth, Illume with luster
Thst glimpsed, glad land wherein, Ihe
i Kntih's wrongs Mie ended.
Which Do You Prefer?
It is important for reasons of health and
practical economy for every housekeeper
to ask herself this question:
" Do I prefer a pure baking powder like
Royal, made of cream of tartar derived from
grapes, or am I willing to use a baking
powder made of alum or phosphate, both
derived from mineral sources?"
The names of the ingredients printed
on the label show whether the kind you
are now using or any brand, new or old,
that may be offered is genuine cream
of tartar powder, or merely a phosphate
or alum compound.
Royal Baking Powder contains no alum
