Border Trouble on Both Sides.
Not all the border trouble orifclnateg In Mex
ico. Quite enoush of It has Its source north ot
the Rio Orande, and some of It quite a ways
north. An Interested, and In Bomn measure in
fluential, circle is actively fomenting the queti
tlon of intervention and possible annexation with
enough of effort to give Mexicans reaHon to
doubt any protestations of sincerity on part of
our government. Those who are responslblw
for the agitation may be honest enough In their
effort, but are open lo the suspicion of being
actuated by motives not entirely devoid of self
interest. The restoration of civil government
In Mexico is necessary In order that many mil
lions of American money invested there ran be
secured from total loss. This applies equally
to the property of other foreigners, which Is in
Jeopardy, Some responsibility for these Invest
ments will rest, on the United Btates finally, If it
Insists on the application of the Monroe doctrine
In Its literal meaning. All of this is recognUed,
and will be met In order, but the adjustment U
not hastened by the talk of annenatlon. To re
store order and to assure Its maintenance Is one
thing; to take and hold the country, Incorpor
ating It Into ours, dividing It Into states and ter
ritories and assuming direct responsibility for
its people, is quite another, and Is hardly what
the American people look forward to as the
solution of the Mexican question. Annexation
ists on either side of the border are bothersome
Just now, and their activity Is doing no good.
Teaching Journalism in the University,
In a stratght-lo-the-polnt article In the Nor
folk News, Kdltor lluae calls attention to the
backwardness of the University of Nebraska In
cultivating the field of Journalism for which the
University of Kansaa, the University of Missouri,
the University of Wisconidn and various other
progressive Institutions have long since eatab
llshed and mtilntulned successful departments.
He emphasizes the urgent need of better trained
newspaper men, and also the value of well con
ducted newspapers to the locality where pub
lished, "The L'nlveisliy of Nebraska owes It to
the state," be concludes, "lo do constructive
work in strengthening the state's newspiipers,
and owes It lo the young men of the slate, look
ing for useful and compensatory occupations, to
give newspaper training the importance which
It deserves and which It Is receiving In other
' To all of this, The Bee ia g!nd to add Its en
dorsement, and while perhaps the university
authorities are not to blame for going slow In
taking on new work, the demand for a depart
ment of Journalism Is surely here and the time
now ripe to meet It. Lack of this Instruction
at home Is the cause of many of our young
folks, with Journalistic ambitions, going to se
ll ro their education In the east or In more nearby
slates, many of whom would prefer to attend
their own statu university It they could obtain
desired training there.
As a climax argument, we know of no asset
that would prove more profitable to the uni
versity than to have graduates of Its Journalism
department, day by day or week by week mak
ing the newspapers that reflect and guide public
sentiment ot the different communities In the
Poincare'i Peace Proposal!,
The speech of the French president, purport
ing to outline terms on which France will ac
cept peace means nothing at all, aside from the
utmost limit of what might be exacted were the
Allies In position to dictate the basis for settle
ment. This outline has been frequently an
nounced from the councils of the Allies. On
the other band, Chancellor von Bethmann
Holweg recently gave notlco to the world of the
conditions under which the Teutons would give
over the war, suggesting terms that can only
be enforced by completely vanquishing the op
position. Apparently no approuch Is being
made to the settlement of the strife. What la
going on behind tbe scenes no one may say
save the leaders who are in the secret councils.
It was secret diplomacy that aligned the nations
as they are now found, and it will quite likely
be secret diplomacy that will arrange the pre
liminaries If It docs n8t definitely fix the terms
for peace. The belligerent nations may be
tiring of the war, but its Immediate end Is not
In sight. At least, no "tradiug points" show
in the public announcements of national ambi
tions. A Study in Exports.
The tide of exports from the United States,
though running at thj flood for months past,
continues rising beyond all former records.
For the nine months of the fiscal year ending
with March the value of exports reached the
unprecedented total of S S.&V J 3 2, nearly
a billion more than the record of the same,
period of the previous fiscal year, and nearly
double the value of imports. The greater part
01 the Increase is accounted for by war muni
tions, steel in a n 11 fact urea, automobiles, rail
toad rata, copper, bias, fine and chemical.
On the other hand, exports of foodstuffs are

Union Pacific Wealth
'Wall ttraat Journal"
Wlttl.K earnings of tho Union I'aclfle are run
ning htavy and the cash position of the rol,
as pointed out hy Dow, Jones -'o.. Is so
strong that an extra dividend might he declared, In
ill.utlons now are that no action of this Hind will
he Ukcn at today's meeting. After clearing of for
eign complications and aettleineul of Hc pending
l,.,r controversy the matter may be considered.
Union Pacific, will earn about U a share for
It. common stock In the year to end June SO. only
J of which Is being turnel over to stockholders
In the regular dividend distribution.
Union trifle has no need to add to a 00.0'M
profit and lose surplus of unusual sort, In that it
la a surplus ev.ry dollar of whld, could readily be
turned into cash and distributed without Interfering
In any way with operation or soundnesa of the
Union Pacific property.
Union Pacific hsa not sought or acquired a repu
tation as a dlshorser of extra dividends. Morn
over, sane railroad management In this country t
this time Is not prone to persuade government le
glons that the land's railroads are burdened with too
much favor, The fart is Hist with the ending of
the hesvy war traffic the roads may find themselves
shortly back on the unpleasant droughty plains they
were traversing before the Plurrfan outbreak. And
neither administrations or commissions can commit
the country's roas to wars to save them from
Nevertheless, hacauoe of Its "other Income"
Union Paolflc, though earning leas than for
slock from railroad operation In poorer yesrs, lias
been abl to lay aside all the reserve II needs.
Therefore, the Intemtata Commerce commission
would find no text should Union Pacific dei'lda to
distribute something mora than the regular qosr
luiy 12 a share, In view of larga earnings, due. to
the war. With other prominent railway offlclala
Judge f.ovett bos given plentiful backing for Presl
nent Wilson's call for better treatment of the
United Htates rails, by decision over the last several
years, that not a dollar could be wisely Invested In
new railway development of this country until thers
Is some assurance of treatment fair enough to en
able the earning of a fair return, it la this wall of
unfavorable conditions shutting" off new Investment,
In fact, which makes It more likely that earnlnaa

Moreover, Union Pacific need worry less over ex
pansion of Ita lines than almost any other toad In
the land, Uulslde of Its rich Kansas field Union
Pacific la a bridge connecting the avenues of vastcat
traffic In the east and the west. To load Ha rails
it doea not. huve to do one-tenth of the soliciting of
other roads, lluirlman picked the national high
way. Il'is successor management may say without
doubt that their Una will receive a large ahare of
tho lands tiaffld, whether they build more feed
ing lines or not. More than that, the double track
ing was dona before dictated by circumstances.
Union Pacific is prepared now to handle four or
five times the present volume of bualneas over Us
double-track Una.
Why Union Pacific thinks it wiser to keep on
huud any largo part of its 1 1 OU.Ouo.OOo surplus ia
nut obvious, auvs for one fsut: the Central Pacific
may he on the market when the supreme court be
speaks its Judgment in the government suit agHliit
Himiliciu t'aclflc. Than Union Pacific, without Issuing-
a bond, could, if it desired, buy its steel ave
nue right through to tha 1'acific. When that pos
sibility is out of the way It Is decidedly piohablo
that Union i'actflc will ceass to be tilt banker, and
lor the siike of forcing from the land a fair treat
ment of the vlla.1 buetnaee of transportation, will
divorce Itself of all but its railroad properly. Jf
Central 1'aclflu ia not bought and no better railroad
conditions are begotten than exist today lo encourago
additional outlay, It will probably mean anoUixr
kiibalantlui distribution to shareholders to clean the
Union I'uciric treasury of all but Ita railroad prop
erty and assets fur actuul operation.
Aalde from some !30,00',000 cash working capi
tal in sight by June 30, Union l'aciflc, in addition
to 170,000,000 par value 6f slock In other railroads,
has about lJ,000,OMo invested in equipment trusts
and notes of other companies and some $85,0110,000
in other compauloa' bonds, all commanding a fairly
teady market. Union i'aclfic'g "other Income'' from
these investments in outalds companies In thu yeur
ending June 30, 1114, waa 113, HO), Ml. Union Pa
cific's fixed charges on Its funded debt the same
year were 13,03,0. Therefore, Union l'aciflc can
pay la fixed charges with Its "oUier Income" and
have Its net railroad earnings free to give to stock
holders. The only bonds of the system maturing in the
next ten years are 114.831,000 Oregon Short Line ts,
due February 1, 19:2.
Union Pacific already has 470 all ateel pasecn-ger-traJn
cars out of a total of 1.324, and of Us
i.':21 ficlght-traln cars J,7 are all steel and S8,63
steel underframs.
Incidentally, Union radflc owns cosl land In
Wyoming which are of great vaJue lo a big railroad,
of Ita t.uOS miles of main line 59 a laid with
nliiety.pounq rail and 21 with eighty-pound 1 all.
hmiiue It Is in such location and such condition and
state of advance preparation Union Pacific lias f..r
years been operated with expenditure of smaller
percentage of groan earnings thsn any of the other
western trunk lines, location ia Involved because
to this la due partly the company's ability to (ui

Within thn wood behind the hill
The moon got taiiK'ed In the trees.
Her splendor made the branches thrlP
And thrilled the hreeie.
The satyrs tn the grotto ben
Their heads to see the wondrous sight,
"It is a god In banishment
That stirs the night."
The little satyr looked and guessed;
"II. is an apple that one aeea,
Wrought from that garden of the west
"It Is a cyelops' glaring eve,"
"A temple dome from Pabylon,"
'A Titan's cup of Ivory."

And caught he moon and tossed 't
A hubole of psle fire it flew
Across tha sky,
The satyrs sped and looked and smile,
And wagged their heads from side to
Ivneept their shaggy tittle child,
Who cried and tiled.
