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.

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. The Omaha. He claim that his suggeton that furmers b allowed to vote by mall was stolen from The Bee. Franklin New: If th primary vote Is any Indlc. Hon th republican, party will hav a walk-away at Hi fall electlona Th republican polled U.Ooo mor vote et th primary than th democrat and stlb some of th danioerat hav th nurv to aay that the republican are responsible for th nomination of their wet candidate for governor, Kjslth Neville. If the republican could spare enough wet member to go Into the detnocrtlo primary and nominate a wet man by over 10,') majority and still have enough vote to beat the democrat by pt.OOO, what may we look for this fall 7 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."

"The Battle Cry of Peace" was written by J. tttuttrt Blackton, president of the Vltagraph Company of America, t sent him a copy of my book, with my com pliments, and he Immediately conceived the Idea of the motion picture, "The Bat tle Cry of Peace." He wrote me.
