Mexican Isiue Sharply Outlined.
Colonel Roosevelt patly remarked at St Louis
a few days sgo, "peace still rages unabated along
the Mexican border." As the conditions there will
largely figure in the approaching campaign, the
democrats undertaking to defend the policy of the
president, it is of more than usual interest to fol
low the daily drift of events. Attention has al
ready been railed to the insolent attitude of the
Carranzaistas towards Americans, and the grow
ing apprehension at Washington that more vigor
ous measures will have to be adopted in order to
secure quiet and good order along the border. If
Carranza is not actually conniving at these irrita
tions, he certainly is not making much of an effort
to check them.
Mr. Wilson is directly responsible for Car
ranza. His refusal to recognize Huerta, no mat
ter for what reason, amounted in effect to an in
terference in the affairs, of a country with whom
we were at peace. The demonstration at Vera
Cruz, which culminated with the withdrawal of
Huerta from the' country, was a direct interfer
ence with the progress of the Mexican revolution,
distinctly aimed at the head of the Mexican gov
ernment Its pretext was never followed up, and
so far as justification' is concerned, the incident
is still open. After this maneuver, Mr. Wilson
continued an intrigue with adherents of Carranza,
finally recognizing him as de facto president of
the republic. All this time our president was
calling on Americans to keep hands off, and to
allow the Mexicans to settle their affairs in their
own way. So far as the legality of the situation
fs involved, Huerta tucceeded to the presidency
of Mexico in conformity with the constitution of
that country, snd was de jure as welt ss de facto
its president To cell him murderer does not slter
this. Carranza, on ths other hand, is the repre
sentative of a cabal, with no rights under the con
stitution, despite hit claim based on. having been
chosen "first chief at a council of leaders, where
the proceedings were had by delegates overawed
by a military force commanded by the outlaw,
Villa. If Huerta'i claim rested on crime, how
much clearer is Carranza's?
Columbus, Glenn Springs and other massacrea
and raids along the border are but incidents
illustrating the inability or indifference of Car
ranza as to the restoration of order and. stable
government in his country. The whole present
aspect of the case is due to the miserable
meddling of President Wilson and his pretense
of applying altruistic principles to a situation that
called for decisive action. , Appeals in the name
of liberty wilt hardly satisfy Americans who re
sent the murders snd unnamed outrages com
mitted by Mexicans against American men and
women on both sides of the border. ,
The republican party's pledge to protect
Americans everywhere is worth its face value.
Arthur D. Brandeii.
People of Omaha wilt feel a deep sense of
personal loss in the death of Arthur D. Brandeis,
who was known to so many of the older residents
because of his long career as a successful business
man in thia city, and to the younger generation
for the reason that he was prominently connected
with the growth of the city in the last few yean.
Mr. Brandeis was the last of a remarkable group
of real builders, J. L. Brandeis & Sons, the latter
being Arthur, Emit and Hugo. .This firm began
business in a smalt way, but the energy of ita
members, their foresight and capacity, built it
steadily to magnificent proportions. Nor were
they busy alone in the affairs of their mercantile
business. , In all public enterprises they were not
only active but generous. The Brandeis monu
ment stands in ststely structures for business, in
beautiful theaters, s magnificent hotel, and finally
in the hearts of friends who were drawn to them
because of the qualities that attract and hold
friends. : Omaha lost heavily as each of the four,
Jonas L. Brandeis and his three ions Were borne
to the grave. '

Pointing Up to t Head-On Smash.
It is in strict accord with the eternal fitness
of things that "Gum Shoe Bill" Stone should be
selected to carry President Wilson's personally-
prepared platform to St Louis. His knowledge
of the by-ways of democratic procedure qualify
him above almost all of his party associ
ate! for the delicate mission of getting
that precious document before the conven
tion in safety.. But there's' a contingency
this time of more than usual moment. Colonel
Bryan is also approaching the democratic con
vention, and it will be the Wonder of modern
times if he has not a personally-prepared plat
form of hia own. He, too, knows hit way about
in a democratic convention, and therefore the
signs alt seem to be pointing up to s pretty tittle
head-on smash between the president and hii
late premier, which will be about the only excite
ment at the gathering. The outcome may be
forecasted by remembering that the president
hands out the pie. '

And this very succinctly sums up the whole
ituation. Men there are by thousands, yes, mil
lions, who are willing enough to bare their
breasts in battle to defend Old Glory, but who
know absolutely nothing of the procedure. One
pacifist recently referred to Bull Run and Shiloh
as showing what can be accomplished by un
trained volunteers. That man, and alt others who
think as he does, ought to read up on what
actually took place at Bull Run and Shiloh: then
he should refresh his mind again as to what
occurred at Chickamauga and other preparation

This is the week of commencements, and
there are many reminders what an army of grad
uate! the United States musters. It is a week,
too, of exhortations to those leaving our colleges
and universities. Yet the conditions, especially
for graduates who are to take up industrial and
commercial work, are 10 indifferent from those of
former years that the speakers can hardly fail
to mark the fact The young man of special
training has today unusual opportunitiea. The
colleges have a right to feel proud of the way m
which they have anticipated the country's new
recognition of the need for the expert. For all
the hard words said about them, the universities
have zealously taken up training for every produc
tive field, including agriculture; they have done
as much as private enterprise for the application
of science to industrial and technical processes;
and they are largely responsible for the new role
of the engineer and that specialization which
makes possible expert production.
Especially In engineering, agriculture and busi
ness are the universities putting forth a vigorous
effort. We sre accustomed to think of engineer
ing as an old field, for it is three-quarters of a
century since the first polytechnic institute com
menced work. , Yet in 1870 there were but eight
een engineering schools in the country, with 107
graduates yearly; in 1880, but forty-one, with 226
graduates, and in 1890, but fifty-two, with 666
graduates. In 1910 there were 118 such schools,
reporting 4,700 graduates, and the number is es
timated ur.ee to have risen to nearly 7,000. Yet
this is but half the story, for the last few years
have witnessed a rise in the dignity and thorough
ness of engineering education. Twenty years ago
the field was scarcely of college rank. It is now
of university and even graduate rank. Harvard
led the way about 1910 in establishing a grsduate
school of engineering. The technical depart
ment of Johns Hopkins, two yean younger, illus
trates another tendency in the prescription of a
uniform three years' course, to be followed by
one or two years of specialization in the differ
ent technical branches later. The state univer
sities largely follow this latter plan, and some
require at least one year of general college work.
In one sense, the word "graduate" as applied to
engineering schools is misleading, in that Har
vard's course is much the same as that of Stevens,
avowedly undergraduate. But such schools often
offer more elective opportunities in investigation.
The earliest graduate engineering experiment sta
tion was established at Illinois fifteen years ago;
it has naturally had followers.
A field in which even more work is being
mapped out is that of business education. The
Wharton school was opened in the early 80's, and
a few others in the later 90's, but their prestige
and enrollment were comparatively una II. Re
cently there have been established schools con
ducted on vsrying plans, but in all the same ten
dency as in engineering towards advanced work
The Harvard School of Business Administration
has a two years' program of graduate work. The
Amos Tuck school at Dartmouth admits students
at the end of the college junior year and carries
them through a two years' course. The school
of business which Columbia is to open next au
tumn will admit students at the end of their sec
ond year. When the New York Chamber of
"Commerce offered tq assist Columbia a few years
ago in establishing such a school, the university
declined on the ground that the demand was
small, the commercial high schools perhaps
adequate, and the proper cirriculum nowhere yet
worked out Ita present action is significant as
being long studied, and indicates a general ten
dency to a compromise between the Wharton
undergraduate and Harvard graduate idea. But
Columbia's will be only one of a number of uni
versity schools designed to add to a general
training two or three years of special technical
courses. There must be already hundreds of
graduates from such schools.
A natural accompaniment of this growth is the
closer practical union of certain college and uni
versity departments with the industrial world.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology, for
example, has just established a "school of chemi
cal engineering practice," by which stations, with
a well-equipped laboratory and a professor, are
w oc maintamcu at cacn oi a nan oozen oi Bos
ton's largest chemical plants. "Never has the de
mand been lo insistent for chemical engineers."
declares the institute. A number of schools, espe
cially in the west have had the state engineering
aaaunanuna appoint auviaory committees on un
dergraduate work and on graduate investigations.
The attitude of business towards the commer
cial schools is evident in the arrangements made
by it in this city to afford practical work to the
Columbia students, and in the efforts elsewhere to
have schools established. The liveliest attention
has been paid by insurance circles, for example,'
to Michigan's recent development of an expert
cirriculum in that subject In sum without mini
mizing the value of their general work the aid
which the colleges are ready to render in the
technical fields made more important by the war
deserves special note.

interview. This relieves Frank P. Corrick, Ne

Grand Island Independent: The building of a
"teacherage" for each rural school in Nebraska
is s new plan proposed by a social service organi
zation and promoted by the lumber interests. It
is said that this plan has been recommended by
the educational organizations of some states and
is looked upon with great favor by many other
such organizations. Incidentally Washington
township with its school district No. 1 may be
proud of its distinction in this connection, having
from the first provided such a teacherage, and be
ing, perhaps the only district in the county tak
ing this step.
York Republican: It is easier to parade than
to march with gun and knapsack. It is pleas
enter to walk than to fight with a stubborn en
emy. Those good people who marched and
shouted for armaments and heroes "Arma vi
ruinque cano" would much rather do that than
to meet the armed foe on the bloody field. Not
one in a hundred of the thousands who marched
in the great parades for preparedness has any
conscious realization of the horrors of war. of

When they march and sing and shout, do they
think of the loss of father, husband or brother,
of the suspense of waiting for newa of them that
they are still living, only to wait in vain and to
learn at last that they an forever gone? It is a
holiday to march, but not to go to war. It is no
joy to ride in the ambulance or on the stretcher.
War is not a picnic it is the most cruel, the most
heathenish, the most diabolical thing ever inspired
by the greed of kings and the folly of men. It has
more tears and sorrows of every sort than any
other device of man or devil. The resoonsihle
ones live in security snd get "glory" if they win,
white the innocent the unoffending men, the
women and children, suffer all the physical and
mental tortures mere are. neii nas no horrors
that surpass it, for war is well. .

THE MELANCHOLY GOLFER.
Edgar A. Gueet, In Detroit Pro Press.
Ton can talk aa yeu will ot being merry and
Ton'oait" preach optimism and hope.
Ton can whisper that trouble will soon pass
And give me the regular dope.
But life will be dismal and dreary to me
And my oup will be bitter as gall
And a chronic old pessimist still will I be
If I'm topping and slicing the balL
Thar are caret that tha vole of a friend
There are troubles that sympathy cures;
But alone and unaided a golfer must grieve
And great are the pangs he endures.
And the kindly advice that friends offer to
In this sorrow mean nothing at all; .
You can't talk him out of despondency grim
If he can't keep his eye on the ball.
So leave me, I beg you, yes, leave me alone,'
Alone with my burden of care;
Pull many a sorrow and trouble I've known
That your presence would help me to bear.
But this Is a case when the touch of your
Witt not lighten my portion ot woet
This la suffering L alt unaided must stand,
And just what I'm doing I know.
