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
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.
There never was a better time than rignt now to ad-rrtiM-
the resources of Cimarron tor the year of 1915.

BLUNDER IS COSTLY
Belgian Regiment Almost Wiped
Out on the Yser.

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
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."
