THE BEE; OMAHA, FRIDAY, JULY 14, 1916,
What la Behind the Order?
A report comes from Washington that an
order has been issued to recruit the National
Guard to its war strength. This means for Ne
braska, for example, that more than double the
number of young men already sent will be called
to the Mexican border, if trie state supplies its
full quota. General Leonard Wood, reporting to
the War department on the mobilization in his
div'uioa, the Eastern, saya that less than 50 per
cent of the war strength of the Guard has joined
the colors, only 41,000 out of a possible 90,000
having been mustered. This is not a fair test of
the willingness of the young men to serve in de
fense of the country, but may be taken as s meas
ure of reluctance to enlist to do patrol duty along
the Mexican border.
What is back ofjhis movement to assemble a
large army along the Rio Grande? President Wil
son emphatically says we are not going to war
with Mexico. General Pershing reports that a
much better feeling exists smong the Mexicans
in his neighborhood, and all outward indications
are that the worst of that trouble is over. Is an
other conflict in sight, or if the movement is the
interest of preparedness, and to give the young
men training in (he life and work of a soldier?
If the latter, the object could be accomplished
ss effectively and at much less cost if carried on
closer to home.
Recruiting for the Guard under the conditions
is not going to be easy. Our boys are willing to
fight, but are loath to spend the summer drilling
in the south. And the people would like to know
whst is going on.
y A Needed Reform Push It Along.
Ths Bee rejoices to see the Lincoln Journal
coming out strong for a reform measure which
we proposed in the last legislature ae s part of
our short ballot program. What we asked the
Iswmakers to do was to provide for the Sub
division of counties with more than one repre
sentative in the legislature and for their election
hereafter, one to a district This would give esch
state senator or representative a definite consti
tuency and further would reduce ths choice, of
each voter to one member of the senate snd one
member of the house, respectively. The Journal
appears to have been brought sround by the un
ascapable logic of the present system, which
punches the nominations snd altogether deprives
the rtrral areas of any place on the ticket and
makes geogrsphle distribution of csndidstes sbso-
lutly impossible. After describing Lsncsster
County difficulties, esys that paper nowt
It is only necessary, to avoid this trouble, to
have the legislature provide for the sub-districting
of legiststive districts hsvin more then
one member. This would divide Lsncsster
county into six districts for the election of its
quota of representatives, giving each sixth of
the county s free hand in the choice of a mem
ber. In addition to securing ths desired candi
dates, this plan would shorten the ballot and
ease ths voter's task. Each voter would then
have to inform himself as to only one candidate,
for the legislature, whereas he hss now to deal
with six. The chsnge would be sn especial -boon
to Douglaa county, where ths list of legis
lative candidates is impossibly long, and would,
no doubt result in s vsst improvement in the
legislative timber sent np from that county.
This is sn easy and beneficial beginning for the.
short bsllot . ;
Had the Journal and others Interested in legis
lative reform lent thelf support when the measure
was pending last year, ws believe It might have
been enacted, for it wst sidetracked on ths flimsy
excuse thst the plan conflicted with that part of
the constitution providing that the legislsturs
shslt make the apportionment at Its first regular
session after esch census enumeration, "but at no
other time," as if a reapportionment were being
proposed instead of merely a change in the meth
od of election, leaving ths apportionment pre
cisely ths same. We hops to see ths gext legis
lsturs take up this part of the short bsllot pro
gram and put It thrbugh and we wslcome ths
assistance of Ths Journal to that end.
; - Texas and Its Rangers.
A Texan, jealous of his state's reputation,
takes too seriously s bit of editorial pleasantry,
la spits of its inexplicable sdhersnce to the fal
lacies of the democrstic platform, no matter by
whom written, Texas commsnda a high regard
In ths sanctum of The Bee. When we think of
Texas, we think of Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett,
of "Big Foot" Wallsce and "Pandy" Ellis, of
Sam Houston, snd a host of others whose names
are shining lights in American history. We, ss
well ss any "longhorn," remember the Alamo,
and San Jacinto, and rejoice with all good Texana
In their proud possessions. And the Texas Ranger
Is recognized hereabouts ss a proud bird, worthy
of hit heritage snd willing to make good on any
of the traditions of the Lone Star state Next
to being t Nebraskan, 'which is about the best
thing that can happen to mortal man, the privi
lege of being a Texsn should be most highly
cherished. The only real regret we have Is that
Kansas and Oklahoma interpose between us and
ths gigantic commonwealth with whom we would
be on terms of closer intimscy snd s more neigh
borly footing. This we hsve tried to make plain
to all the world by sending a colony of good citi
sens to Texas, where they thrive and give a flavor
to the life that is certain to come to perfection
with the proper blend of Nebraska and Texas,
the greatest and the largest of all ths sisterhood
of states. ' ' , :
Clesning Up on the Careless. '
Acting Police Judge Kubst Is doing a good
work, seconding the motion of The Bee thst
something bs done to indues the careless sutoist
to show some respect for ths traffic rules and for
the rights of the simple folks who still have to
walk. Omaha's traffic rules ate very reasonable,
and eight out of ten automobile drivers find com
pliance is esay. It is ths Other two who make
the trouble. They either do not think or do not
care, and the result is a disarrangement of atreet
traffic that is dangerous. The activity of the po
lice in bringing these offenders to account is ef
fort well applied. . The moderate fines imposed by
ths police judge srS simply as reminders to first
offenders that they are not observing the taw nor
fulfilling their obligations ss citizens. So fsr the
lesson hss been tslufsry, for none have appeared
In ths column I second time, snd the work is
worthy, for it it making ths streets safer by day
snd by night -
Stronger evidence should be produced before
crediting ths complaint to ths State Railway com
mission of poor penmanship and ill-mannera of
ststion agents., The charge may stick, but, syen
to, allowance must be mads for temptrsture snd
temper on both sides. In some quarters the old
notion that the station agents own the road snd
the shippsrs run it, still prevails, snd tims is re
quired to plow it under.

Bradshaw, Neb., Julr IS. To tht Editor
of Tht Bee: The national convention and
"tct-toeether" conference of the prohibi
tionists will be held at St Paul, Minn., July
1S-I1. Tho nttitnal aommlttct hat been
actively pushlnt tht matter at attendance,
and tho etate eommitte at well. Owing
to tht fact that .the state of Nebraska hat
a dry campaign on tor this fall and that
tht prohibition party in tht state decided
to put up no state ticket, but put all its
energies into tht campaign through the dry
federation, tht matter of conventions may bt
lost tight of by tht party prohibitionists.
Wt havt nominated an electoral ticket, thus
keeping the party organisation to touch
with the national, and the regular state con
vention will ht held according to law, on
Tuesday, July is, ISIS. Tht call It for
I o'clock p. m., at the Lindell hotel in Lin
coln, on tho above date. Each county la en
titled to ont or more delegates, and tht pro
hibitionists art asked to got together on
Saturday, July It, and nominate tht requisite
number. These county meetings ahould be
held to the county teata. Tht oonventlona
will have the usual business of tht party to
attend to, hut It will bo utilisad to crcatt
at much enthuilaim within tht ranks, aa
may he possible, for the dry campaign.
The etate committee has followed Instruc
tions given last fall by tha prohibitionists
and made no effort to raltt funds for its
party work, has placed no nominees on tht
state ticket other than thott of presidential
tleetort and delegatee to tho national con
vention. It has turned over Its funds to
tht drp federation for use in tht campaign,
and to tvtry way possihlt hat aldtd tht
worhtrt thereof. It Is proposed to keep up
the party organisation, for ao out can fort
cast tht futurt and wt must bs prtpartd
for any eventualities.
A really dry Nebraska Is not to be scoured
by limply winning tht tleetion for the
amtndmtnt to November. Tht personal
aquation of tht men to bt chosen to enact
laws to enforce tht constitution It a very
vital ont, and tht work ot toeing that tht
right hind ot laws art made and tht right
kind of men chosen to enforce them, It ae

Or throughout the human systsrn
Radiate so warm a glow,
Or to which ao much attention
By the world st Isrg is paid,
Or that hat auch approbation, -
Al the courting of a maid.
Father Adam first began it
Back In Eden, it Is laid,
And aa faat as countries peopled
The contagion to them spread;
And today there Is no region
Found beneath ths shining tun.
Where i mslden Is not courtsd.
And a maiden is not won.
Cunld hag's long engagement
With the hearts of human kind.
And will even shoot an arrow
At an animal I find: .,..
While tho birds ire ipeeiat victims
Of his tit-embracing darts.
And the raacal never misses
In his gunning tfter hearts.
Not a living tning eeeapea him,
High or low, or bound or fret.
In the pilact, In tht hovel.

And the world is only happy
And oontented, 1 havt found.
With a doien Cupid l'ln;;'..
Full of arrows, standing rouna.
