Owner ' THE ARIZONA LAW The British and Italian ambassadors to the United States at Washington are vigorously protesting to the de partment of state against the enanctment of the 80 per t ent law recently voted through the iniative in the state of Arizona. The ambassadors contend that the law is in conflict with the treaties of their respective countries. While it is generally understood and acknowledged in this country that a treaty between the United States and foreign countries precedes the law of any state or its possessions, it is still more and equally important to know and appreciate that there are many forms of treaties, and on this question hinges the ultimate outcome, whether the Arizona law is valid or not. In a narrower vsense treaties may be divided into many classes as, political, economic, guarantee, surety, neutrality, alliance, friendship, boun dary, cession, exchange, jurisdiction, extradition, commerce navigation, peace, etc. Most of these classes are sufficient ly described by their titles. The British ambassador has since admitted that he erred in his contention, and it would not in the least be surprising to read at any time that the Italian ambassador acted under strange hallucinations in which he believed his countrymen to be imposed upon in our sister state. But few Englishmen are employed at common labor in the United States; they have different aspirations. The Italians on the other hand perform a great per centage of common labor especially in the mines, and mining is Arizo na's chief industry. In the light of present conditions it would appear that Arizona has a legal right to say whether or no she wiil ad mit the employment of 20 per cent of her laborers who do not respect the United States sufficiently to become her citizens. The treaty will be CONGRESSIONAL ISSUES Congress convened at Washington, Monday to wind up the affairs of the 63rd session and which ends on noon March 4. The rivers and harbors bill is the first to come up for consideration and when of oratory and fireworks will against the measure. Congress ground down the rivers and harbors appropriation to twenty million dollars in Oc tober, but that is not all. It is now planned to add anoth er thirty million dollars to the appropriation. This amount will go a long way towards exploiting creeks with not enough water to float a muskrat, and to pay a political debt. Departmental engineers have recom mended waterway appropriations in but few instances for the present budget, but in spite of this, southern demo cratic members are bent on without a hitch. But there is sage. 100,000,000 people are congress to see which way they will vote in 1916. This should have some weight with the moulders of public opin ion, and it will have if they value their jobs at anything.- Judge B. S. Rodev in a statement sets forth many val uable ideas on how to run the state of New Mexico, in a recent issue of the New Mexican. The judge touches on many subjects, but the most important he designed is the introduction of the ' primary election and the Australian ballot in the next legislature. The primary election is not so important as the Australian ballot, especially so since the two year term is in effect. The thread-worn conten tion that certain classes do not understand this system is too old. The Australian ballot never will be understood until this class has an opportunity to use it intelligently. Chairman Ralph Kly must be accredited with being the strongest man New Mexico can produce for its next governor, and the News goes on record as saying that if be will accept the nomination he is elected right now. Al so, he would lie of much service in Washington, but he is needed more at horae where development awaits the guid ing hand. However, the election is two years hence. The libel law of New Mexico was designed to force the press in saying flowery things about officials when in reality their acts would not become a man on the scaveng er wagon, who would be a shining example to pattern after. The state expended over a half million dollars on its highways during the past fiscal year. We know of one section that received but little from that amount. Those politicians in Union county are again stirring up a batch of gunpowder to set off when the legislature convenes. The fuse is already sputtering. Liquor is a potent factor when the treasury is broke, a it is now proving with the additional tax placed on it.

BLUNDER IS COSTLY Belgian Regiment Almost Wiped Out on the Yser. Germana by Falae Uniform Trap Worn- Out Foes Only 100 Survive of 00 Men Deep Water In Trenches. London. England The Dally News describes the temblé experiences of one Belgian regiment during the bat tie on the const when this regiment withdrew from Antwerp. Through an error it was given two days' drill and Inspection, instead of rest, and then went Into action again In the network of trenches on the banks of the Yser. The newspaper'a correspondent In his dispatch quotes one of the soldiers In this body as follows: "There was a farm on our right and some of our men were firing at it when the door opened and three offi cers In Belgian uniforms stepped out, shouting to cease firing. We sent a detachment of men to the farm and they were swept away by machine gun fire. Trench Filled With Water. "Later we entered the trenches. They were full of water -and I was tir ing for six hours, thigh deep in water. The German machine guns shot us out of crevices In a raised bank only a few yarda acroBa the river. The Ger--nans then got Into our cross trenches and fired down our ltnea. We had to run back. I waa too sleepy to run. I must have fallen asleep and then we must have been ordered to advance. I was too tired to get up. but some one kicked me and I got up. as did the man in front of me. He Immediately was shot through the head and fell back on me. I got up again. A shell burst near me and three men who were running past just disappeared In Trenches With Germans. "T found myself running forward again with others with fixed bayonets onto the Germans, who were firing from our own trenchea. We were 200 left from 600 They did not wait, but scrambled over the bank across the river. We crouched In a big trench In muddy water It waa dark and we heard, we thought, Germans whisper ing on the river side of our bank only six feet away from us The speakers were 300 Germans who had stayed on our side, fearing to cross the river un der our fire. Only 100 of Regiment Left. "So we stayetj all night. Neither they nor we slept. Some of our men who crept up the bank to look over were shot. Some of the Germans climbed over and we fired at their heads handa and arms aa they became visible. A few made holes through the loose earth, through which we fired on each other. Then the French got around the end and there was heavy firing. We heard a few of the enemy slipping down to the river edge and the splaihlng of water. Then we scrambled over the bank and won. Only 100 of our regiment now remain." BULLETS FAIL TO KILL HIM British Army Officer Has Msn Close Calls From Death In Battle Line. London. Lieut. A. C.
