Not an Apology Only Regrets.
Having had tardy access to "tho exact word
ing" of the now treaty negotiated with Colom
bia by President Wilson and Secretary Bryan,
adherents of tho administration are now de
claring that It "puts a different face" on tho
"apology" which has caused so much heated
comment In this country. Examination of the
text, It Is true, discloses a careful uso of diplo
matic phrases, but docs not, so far as wo can
see, make tho document any less an admUslon
that tho Unltod States has, In a blameworthy
way, offended Colombia and Ib exerting its bes
offorts to appease. Quoting tho language of
the treaty, referring back to the 1903 troubles,
tho government of tho United States "oxpresscii
Blnccro regret that anything should have oc
curred to Interrupt or to mar tho relations of
cordial friendship that had so long subsisted
botweon the two nations" and tho government
of Colomobia "accepts this declaration." Uncle
Sam docs not bow low and say "1 am sorry" nor
does Colombia bow In return and respond "I
accept tho apology," but tho sum and substanco
of It Is precisely the Barae.
Let It be noted, too, that nowhere In tho
wholo document Is there any word by which
Colomobia on Its side expresses sincere regret
so that the United States can accopt that decla
ration. On the contrary, other stipulations- of
the treaty make it plain which country Is "ro
grettlng," for with tho payment of a $26,000,
000 largesse, "gold," and tho freedom of tho
Panama canal thrown In for full meaauro, Co
lombia would havo every reason to "rojolco"
and not the somblance of an excuse to "regret."
The-current number of a little Journal Is
sued by tho KansaB City Commercial 'club bears
The Three Things to Do: Tho best thing-Do
something and do it right; tho next best thing-Do
something and do it wrong; tho unpardonable thing
To do nothing.
The thomo is action. -"To fall at all Is to
fall utterly," Lowell put It. Llfo, itself, is lit
tle mpro than an experiment supplemented wlt'j
sorrow and tho right way generally comes from
doing the wrong way often enough and long
enough. Only tho man falls who stopB trying.
Failure Is nothing that comes of effort. It ia
told of Jehu Baker, once conspicuous In con
gress from Illinois, that in a campaign for re
election bo thus addrossed an audience: "All
you men who have made mistakes In your life
time pleaso stand up," whereupon hundreds
rose, only a half dozen remaining seated. "Now,
you aro the follows whoso votes I want. My
opponent can have tho others." '
It Is a good Uttlo slogan, not only for cltiea
that aro out to accomplish things, but for In
dividuals as well. It stands for tho Idealistic,
inspires constant effort, "To do nothing" not
only is unpardonable, it Is abominable. It
stands for all that Is worthless; it is another
name for retrogression. Action is tho thlng
And "action," somebody has said, "is but
coarsened thought thought bocome concrote."
No action, then, no thought.
Perhaps Kansas City may find that Its Uttlo
slogan will prove acceptable to other wide
.awake commercial organizations like Its , own.
As to Ballot Rotation.
An Interesting development of the now elec
tion system is promised by the demand of the
opponents of university consolidation for the
rotation Of the official ballot on tho proposition
for and against consolidation. Tho rotated bal
lot has so far prevailed only In tho primary
election, having boon engrafted upon tho pil
mary law for tho purpose of nullifying, or off
setting, tho Ignorant or indifferent vote that
would put a crossmark opposite the first name
under each subdivision to the unearned ad van.
tage of tho top man, and the disadvantage of
those who, by reason of tardy filing or alpha
betical inferiority, wore lower down In tho col
umn, Rotation has not yet been adopted In Ne
braska for the regular election ballot, tho point
of vantage still bolng accordod to the party
which In tho preceding election recorded the
highest number of votes, except in tho new non
partisan Judicial ballot, which, we believe, is to
have the rotated form.
The thoory of rotation is, of course, that the
voters affected by it havo no knowledge 'of or
preference for any of the candidates for a par
ticular office, and therefore the ballots cast bj
them should bo equalized as between the candi
dates. How this can apply to a definite propo
sition such as a constitutional amendment, a
bond issue, an Initiative measure, or a refer
endum like the university proposition, is not
entirely clear. A voter wthout a sufficient
understanding to be for or against, and sufr
ctent Intelligence to vote as he desires, would
noturally not vote for the proposition at all.
While It is quite conceivable that a xaero list or
candidates' namea conveys no information tha.
would warrant a decision as between them, the
mere statement of the gist of a constitutional
amendment or a proposed law ought to bo
onough, especially after the education affordel
the voter through tho official explanatory hand
book with which ho is to bo supplied,
Tho inltlatlvo and referendum prevails la
about a dozen states, and the popular ratltlca
ton or rojectlon of constitutional amendments
is common to all of the states, but we have yet
to hear of oae of them whero tho principle of
rotation has been so applied.
An interview by Senator Norris that to be
ing distributed by the votes-for-women publicity
bureau starts out, "We have never voted on
woman suffrage In our state." Just to set th
senator right, lot us remind him that a woman
suffrage amendment to tho constitution of Ne
braska was submitted in tho election of ma,
and the returns when canvassed nhowed 25,750
votCB tor and 50,693 against It.

My article, "Democratic Inconsistencies"

he squeals. He must be from the stripe
of copperhead democrats of the times

When I was a boy It was called the
"war of the rebellion," but In these days

comes In when it Is known that tens of
thousands of the finest boys from the
north wore starved to death In the vile
prison pens of the south and thousands
more of them came out with health
broken for life. It seems to me that the
proper name for it, if tho name has to
be changed, would bo to call it the un

This man Clark said I would eat the
flesh from every democrat In tho United
States. My wife says I have a huge
appetite, but it would havo to bo largo
for me to try to cat the flesh from even
ono democrat, and I would have to be
"awful hungry" to try to cat a democrat.
This man Clark does not seem to like my
article, but men who know more in a
minute than he. over will know have told
me It was the finest production that I
have ever had published. So that all do
not agree. The coward is the one who

GRAND ISLAND, Neb., May 9.-To tho
Editor of Tho Bee; In your Issuo of to
day a letter from a Mr, Clark appears
in criticism of another from Mr. Agne-v.
Mr, Clark's letter Is undoubtedly from a
true-hearted democrat, for who but a true
hearted democrat would have ability to
exhibit such a wonderful tendency
toward such a tine attempt at democrat
ic oratory, the greatest value of which
has been to give the English language
tho word mug-wamp to hurl at tho politi
cal giants of democracy, whoso chief
history Is known by their faults?
Mr. Clark would havo us believe that
Mr. Agnew would Jlko nothing better
than a toothsome morsel of democratic
flesh. We know that democrats ,have
no appetlto for such fare, but would
rather dangle their legs at the pie coun
ter and sink their political fangs Into
any old plo on tho counter, or lap the
crumbs that fall their way poor half
starved rascals. They've been hungry a
long while. During the present adminis
tration at I2C0 a year pittance is sought
for and fought for and devoured with
cannaballstlo glee, and a ISO a month
morsel Is big enough and contains so
many indigestible qualities, not comput
able with local party security, that com
mand the devotion and censorship of
the able and honorable secretary of
state, the hero of many brain attempts
to run the bake shop on his own hook.
The accidental democratic administra
tion at present 1 only a link in the
chain of political evolution. Mr. Clark,
and is a part of the course showing the
survival of the fittest the republican
party, which will be naturally selected
by voters who know back-bone from pie.

OMAHA, May 10. To the Editor of The.
Bee: Your correspondent, D. R. J., in
"A Plea for Votes for Women," asks why
It is that if men wish to protect their
daughters, "the world is full of girls,
scarcely more than children, struggling to
earn a pitiful living, robbed of all tho
Joys that belong to youth?" Now what,
in the name of common sense, las suf
frage to do with present day industrial
conditions, which have forced young
girls, through the poverty or inability of
their parents to support them, Into fac
tory or department store? What have
politicians, or the laws, or cuff i age to
do with business conditions, under which
male labor has been crowded out by fe
male labor? Do suffrage advocates
really believe they can remedy such con
ditions through the ballot?
Again your correspondent says: "Our
boys are not safe, and many a mother
would altuddar with horror if she knew
the temptations that beset his path In the
walks of everyday life." Now what temp
tations are there more alluring, more
calculated to arouse the passions, than
present day female attire? Is it only
through suffraBb and the ballot that
women can be Induced to abandon the im
modesty ir not Indecency of today's fash
ions in dress? It has always setmed to
me that one of the most potent argu
ments against woman suffrage is her en
slavement to fashion. It women are to
be emancipated politically, they should
first emancipate themselves from the ex
pensive and degenerating slavery -of the
fashion plate. If that can b accom
plished moro quickly through the ballot,
then by all means let us extend the fran
chise to women Immediately. A. L. M.

Villa's Villanous Record
The Rebel Leader's Trail of
Crime Among; Noncombatants.
General Francisco Villa, leader of the constitu
tional force in northtrn Mexico, Is more frequently
In the public -eye than the Spaniard, Carranza, whom
he Is presumed to serve. His press bureau Is far
moro actvle and hi dash as a commander vocalizes
hi Importance as a news maker, overshadowing foi
tho tlmo being the trail of murder, plunder and ut
rago which maps his field of operation.
Murder, plunder and outrage are Villa' specialties.
He was reared that way, and increasing opportunities
have made him a master hand in the business. To
American his career is worth studying In connection
with his published appeal to tho United States to raise
the embargo on war material and the .certainty that
with constitutionalist success ho will sit close to If
not actually in the presidential chalr of Mexico.
A. biography of Villa compiled by the Boston Tran
script and read by Senator Lodge In tho United States
senate last week, supplies tho following facts:
Francisco Villa was born at Lna Nleves in the state
of Durango about the year 1868. He Is wholly un
educated, being unable to read and barely able to
sign his name. About the year 18S2, when only 14
years of ago, he wn sentenced to a term of Imprison
ment for cattle stealing. On hi discharge b settled
in the mining camp of Guanacevl, where a few months
later he underwent another sentence of Imprisonment
for homicide. When ho came out of prison for tho
second time ho organized a band of robbers, which
had their headquarters in the mountainous region of
"Perico" In the state of Durango, and were the terror
of all that district.
In tho year 1907 he was in partnership with one
Francisco rtexa, stealing cattle In Chihuahua and Bell
ing them in the United States, and then stealing mules
and horse in the United States and selling them In
Chihuahua. In consequence of some disagreement he
shot and killed Bexa in broad daylight, while sitting
in tho plaza In the City of Chihuahua. During tho
early part of November,, 1910, he attacked the factory
of a Mr. Soto, in Allcnde, state of Chihuahua, and
killed tho owner. By threatening tho latter's daughter
ho forced her to show whero sho had hidden a sum of
J 11, COO, which he stole and used for arming a consid
erable force. Ho then Joined Madero's devolution,
uniting hi band with Urblna's column. In January,
1911, he wa at Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, where he
killed Carlos Alatorre and Luis Ortiz for refusing to
pay him the money ho demanded for their ransom.
At Batopllas, stato of Chihuahua, In February of the
same year he tortured a lady named Senora Maria do
la Luz Gomez until ho made her pay him $30,000. She
died from the effect of tho barbarous treatment she
Ontratren nt Jtinre.
When Cludad Juarez wa taken from tho federals
In May. 1913, he killed Senor Ignacio Gomez Oyola, a
man of over sixty year of ago, under tho following
circumstances: Having sent for him, Villa asked
whether ha had any arms in his house, and on saying
he had not, Villa, "who was seated on a tabic," drew
hi revolver and shot him dead. After rifling the
corpse of money and valuables it wab thrown into
After the triumph of the revolution, Villa, In No
vember, 1911, obtained a monopoly from the then gov
ernor of Chihuahua for the salo of meat In the city
of Chihuahua, which he procured by stealing cattle
from tho neighboring farms, Suspecting one of his
subordinates, Cristobal Juarez, of stealing on his own
account, he killed him one night In tho latter part of
November In tho Callo de la Llbertad.
In the early part of May, 1913, Villa, with seventy
five men, assaulted a train at Bacza, state of Chihua
hua, that wa carrying bars of gold and silver valued
at 100,000 pesos, killing the crew and several passen
gers, including Messrs. Caravante and a, Senor Jsaao
Herrero of Cludad, Guerrero.
Lato in the same month he entered the town of
'San Andres, Chihuahua, and assaulted the house of
Senor Saba Murga, an Haclendado, who, vtlth hi two
eons, tried t6 defend themselves. Two of tho JVphew
wer killed, but tho Murga got away. Villa then got
hold of two sons-in-law of Murga who had not taken
any part In the fight, and after torturing them to
say where their father-in-law had hidden his money,
he- had them killed.
Massacre nt Conns Grandes.
In July, 1913. Villa took Casas Grandes, Chihuahua,
and shot more than eighty noncombatants, violating
several young girls, amongst them two young ladles
He attacked and took the town of San Andres,
which was held by the federals, in September, 1913,
shooting many peaceable residents and more than 150
prisoners, many of these being women and children.
In shooting theso people, in order to economize cart
ridges, he placed one behind the other up to five at
one time, very few of them being killed outright. Thu
bodies of the dead and wounded were then soaked
with petroleum and thrown Into bonfires prepared for
the purpose. The prisoners were forced themselves
to make the bonfire and cover with etroleum the rest
of th victims.
After this he went to the small town of- Carretas,
where he took prisoner an old man of more than
seventy years of age, named Jose Dolores Moreno,
demanding from him a ransom of ISO. As he could
not pay Villa killed him with his own ha.nd.
On September S9, 1913, Villa, having overpowered a
force of over COO federals commanded by General Al
vlrez, at Avlles, fifteen kilometers from Torreon, had
very prisoner shot.
Villa haa ahot in Chihuahua 160 noncombatants, the
greater number poor people who could not leave for
want of means, or because they thought they ran no
risk, as they took no part In politics. For all the
people in any way connected with the government had
loft before Villa entered the city. Special mention
may ybe made of the case of Senor Ignacio Irigoyen
and Senator Jose A. Yanez, who, though in no wa
connected with politics, were taken by Villa and tor
tured for several day with threat to shoot thorn
until they paid ransoms of 130,000 each. Having ob
tained from Villa himself safe conduct to leave by
train for the border, the train in which they were
wa caught up at the station of Montezuma by a
locomotive in which were several officer in Villa's
confidence, headed by an ex-Maderlsta deputy called
Miguel Baca Ronqulllo, who took them from the train
and shot them in the presence of the passenger.
Twice Told Tales
A certain curate wa of a painfully nervous tem
perament, and In consequence was constantly mak
ing awkward remarks Intended as compliments to
the bishop and others.
Having distinguished himself in an unusual decree
during a gathering of clergy at an afternoon tea a
short while ago in the bishop's palace, he was taken
to task for his fallings by a senior curate, who ws
one of lit companion on the way home.
"Look here.'' said Simms, the senior, decidedly,
"you are a donkey. Why can't you keep quiet Instead
of making your asslnlna remarks? I'm speaking to
you now as a brother."
Loud laughter interrupted him at this point, and
for the moment he did not get the joke. Pittsburgh
