Anna Shaw says mon-raado governments aro oven dealing with the milk supply for babies, "And surely you will admit that Is a woman question."

If thoso water rates were "ex orbitant" four years ngo, surely they are also .exorbitant now -with en forced Installation of meters, lawn sprinkling privileges cut off, extra hydrant rental taxes, and pipe ex tensions charged up to abutting property owners. One member of the "Water Board Euggests that It took nine years to get possession of the water plant. and that It will take four yeare to get a reduction of rates. All right, tnen, we ate enlisted for a four jear campaign If necessary but It won't be necessary. Hereafter In tho District of Colum oia loan sharks will be restricted to an Interest charge 'of l per cent i month under a law signed by tho president this week.

Mexico's New Crisis, f Out of tho vortex of revolution-; nry storm In Mexico rlsos nppar-( ontly again triumphant tho mystic' namo of'Dlai. If reports arc true; tho young aclon has broken the captlvo bonds, overthrown the con queror of his lron-handod uncle and pitched tho republic doopr Into tho turmoil of civil war. Ono of the Bonsatlonnl Incidents in the turn of events Is tho death of tho veteran General Uornardo Reyes, llko young Felix Diaz, a prisoner of war under Madoro. Allowing for Inaccuracies In de tail naturally arising at such times, wo are confronted by a now crisis In Moxlco and if the robols under young Diaz havo gained tho ground reported, a complete reversal of au thority with Diaz In control In stead of Madoro may bo tho next step to look for. But at all events, it now appears that the frequent notes of warning of another up heaval wcrVnot unfounded. Our government deeniB tho policy of ndn-lnterferenco tho ono still to pursue, On tho evo of a turn-over of" our own government this Is doubtless correct. The dis posal of additional warships to the rono of clanger is a mighty good pro cautionary measure. Downing the Dope Distributer. A systematic movemont Is under way throughout tho country to chock tho dopo evil by stopping Its distribu tion at tho source, To this end bills havo boen presented In various legis latures, Including Nebraska, prescrib ing stringent regulations to restrict the sale of cocaine, morphine nnd similar poisons, and Imposing penal ties severe enough to dotor viola tion. Spoaklng with reforonco to the bill proposed In New York, the Outlook says: Tho evil .done through this drug- Is all but incalculable. It Is sold to the wretched; victims by unprincipled drug gists, and' It is alleged that unscrupulous physicians often. furnish oocoino; and it Is known that tho drug Is sold on tho streets by men who carry It In small quantities. This law. lias one very ef fective prevention, namely, that ' overy prescription should bo filed by the drug gist,, should be filled orjly once, and that no 'copy of It should bo furnished. Few people n'ro awaro of the extent nnd damage done by tho dopo evil right here In Omaha, arid In only a smaller dogroo In nearly every city and town In tho state. A largo per centage of tho prisoners In our county and state prisons are addicted to its use, and thoso conversant with the facts Insist that It Is fn'r worso than the drink ovll.

Every Intelllgenfctfort to Burpross It should hard the hearty co-operation of the law-makors. Hob Murder. Two young nogrocs nro lynched at Houston, Miss., following the murder of a wljlto woman. Tho for mer protests his innoconco to tho last and tho latter corroborates him, confessing tho crlmo himself, to tho satisfaction of tho mob. Hore, then, Is tho spectaclo of an innocent man torturod to death under falso ac cusatlon of a foul crlmo. And thus far, apparently, the great state of Mississippi has mado no move toward, punishing tho murderers. Tho numbor of lynchlngs In this country, though no longer conflnod to a section, is steadily diminishing, but how long will UiIb continue with silent immunity accorded in such oxtromo cases. Tho last thing to be said against lynching is sufficient to condemn it, namely, that an innocent ltfo Is no safer In tho bands of a blood-thirsty mob than a guilty one In tho present caso,, a black victim waB wanted. If It had boen tiro culprits Instead of ono, possibly five Innocent Uvea might havo boon takon. It would not take many domon stratlons of the law's power, prop erly administered, to vtndlcato It, hut the law too often loses ndt only Its vigor hut all concern for justice whon once .the fires aro kin dled by a single spark. Welcome Teachers Atrain. No ono can truthfully rlnv. trine . . kt'u i the teachers of Nebraska prefer i Omaha, as the place for tho annual) convention of their stato organtxa-l tlon now that this city has been' selected by referendum, vote for the third consocutlve year In spite of opposition, the character of which It Is not pleasant to discuss. Under tho circumstances the largo prefer ence voto given to Omaha can bo construed simply as a graclouc ac knowledgement of tho city's hospi tality and attractiveness. Bo, for the third time Omaha will welcome tho teachers and it has just as many welcomes for them as they will avail themselves of. The selec tion of Omaha as the metropolis of the stato for thoso gatherings of men and women composing a profes sion second In dignity and importance to none Is most gratifying. If the people of Qmaha .cannot be trusted to run their own water works for which they paid $7,000,000, why should they be trusted to run their own parks, their own garbage collec tion system, their own fire depart ment. If not their water works, why should they be trusted to run any of their own city government?

"Once on a freight train the conductor said to the brakeman: " 'There's a tramp stealing a tide on that forward box car. Go and pull htm off, George. "George walked over tho car tops 'till he came to the tramp and then roared: " 'Git off! Olt now!' "But tho tramp calmly drew forth an enormous revolver, wid the brakeman re treated over the car tops again. ' 'Well, did you put him off, George?' the conductor asked. ' 'No, I hadn't the heart to,' flwrfl replied. 'Ho's an old boyhood friend of mine, poor feller.' " 'Well. I'll settle him said tho con- ductor grimly, and he in turn set off over the car tops toward the tramp. " 'Did you settle hlmr George asked. on the conductor's return. " 'No,' was the reply.

Tho suffrage procession will differ from tho Inaugural parade tn that the latter will swing to tho north up Fifteenth street, passing the Treasury building on the east and north, while the women and their male sympathizers will forge .straight ahead from the avenue past the Treasury building, on the south, and ithenco pass the west side of the building into Pennsylvania avenue again.

OMAHA, Feb. 9. To the Bdltor or The Bee: All the great questions of ( tho day have their champions. Ah the wheels of time roll on conditions change, and new generations, new blood, and new ideas follow. Sunday afternoon. Dr. Anna Howard Shaw spoke In tho Brandels theater, and a man was wanted to dis cuss the suffrage question With her; her could not be found. In an attempt to criticize this great woman the writer would fall. Her appearance on the stage showed her education to bo of the highest. Her rhetoric was perfect. No play from that stage ever caused such ripples of merriment ns her Illustrations of fact and fancy. F"rom her viewpoint the world will get better when women vote or when they tell the men by voice and voto where to "head In." For a half century the writer has ob served conditions among the commonest of common people. Manyv times has he been In homes where tho mother had tho kindliest of looking faces. He has seen sons and daughters In that home who loved and respected her. The pa rental love was there. Ho has seen tho tired husband and father come In at supper time worn with the cares of the day. He wanted to tell his troubles to some one. It Is then that woman can assist In driving away clouds of sorrow. No need of the ballot In this home. There Is a responsibility coming. What will love, courtship and marriage do for them? Has anyone ever told them of home building? Is -It not tho homes of the nation that make It? Who is re sponsible for the future! There is but one answer. The parent of today. "Knowledge Is power." Where aro the teachers? In an Institution not far away, are over 400 children, all of whoso minds are affected. Nebraska boasts of Its smnll illiteracy, but is It not a fact that such conditions are overbalanced here? Human laws will never mako homes. If it did technicalities would break them. Tho writer does not say womon should keep silent. Yet he begs to differ with tho doctor. What arc paretns teaching our boys and girls? What are our Institutions of learning doing? .Matrimonial bureaus are being conducted by men in high places. Is there a thought of the millions of feet that will follow and homes that will fee needed? TOM J. HILDBBRAND. Methods of Teachlns the Deaf. PENDER, Neb., Feb. 9. To tho Editor of The Bee: I wish to call your attention to a law passed In 1911, requiring tho "exclusive uso of the oral method" In the School for tho Deaf at Omaha. When the legislature acted upon it they had been led to believe by a few parents of deaf children that this was the dpatrn nt an parents of deaf In the state. This wo a. noi tno trutn. They represented a few who had but little Interest In tho deaf of our state. Their children were In schools In the east. They wanted tham tn h different from those using the combined system. By its use If a child has anything in him It will develop. What parent wants ms cnua forced by inhuman practices to speak. These few parents, together with the present superintendent, are seeking to imposo another burden upon our stale 'n the way of" an appropriation' for new buildings" to be used In segregating thetr pets from the rest of the chil dren, seeklnc to' Wa a wnv tn have the instructors at tho schnnl spend three-fourths of their time up.n ineir select and let the balance go at random. This is unfair to tho deaf of the state. There are many who can never accomplish the oral system, yet under the combined ssyt.em can secure an edu cation thot will enable them to make their way In tho world, The National College for .the Deaf at Washington, p. c., uses the combined system. The brightest graduates from the .schools all over tho country go there. Nebraska has eleven there nqw and they uso the 'combined system. I am a graduate of the Nebraska School for tho Dpaf. I received my education under the combined system, I firmly be lieve In It, as it gives all deaf an equality that cannqt be attained by the oral sys tem. I hope every .one who reads this will use his .or her 'efforts In' havlner that law repealed at once. CHESTER H. TOXWOUD. Where True Teln Is Needed. DES MOINES, Feb, 9.-To tho Editor of Tho Bee: For ten years I have made a deep and careful s.tudyof many med ical books and magazines relating to tho cause and cure, of all sorts of sickness and disease. In addition to this I have made It my business to thoroughly study at cloae range many Individual cases as found In state and county hospitals.' It you have from time to time rca-1 carefully the reports of the superintend ents of state hospitals you will doubtless have noticed In a great number of in stances a small percentage of recoveries. Man patients committed to state hos pitals die or become permanently Insane because of the fact that a large number of doctors, attendants, nurses and other employe in charge are not sympathetic, care little for the patients' welfare and are very often themselves actually insane In the use of unnecessary technical medical terms, poisonous drugs, vivisec tion -and other needless surgery. Yours In the Interest of those needing true help and sympathy. JAMES R. CLARK. Another Phase of Depot Question. OMAHA, Feb. 10. To the Editor of Tho Bee; Referring to recent articles about a new union depot for 1915, before urging this so strongly, why not utilize to tile fullest capacity tho depot facilities we now have. According to the last depot time card, there are about fifty-four west and fifty four eostbound passenger trains entering the Union station dally, while there are but fourteen each way dally at the Bur lington station. No doubt some of the tenant lines could make a satisfactory lease with the Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy for use of Its depot, which, wtun built, was Intended for a great many more trains than are now using it. By diverting one-halt of hj traftia to each dtpot( which are only a short distance apart) and putting in a subway to con nect them. It seems to me that the pres ent congestion can .be avoided without much extra expense. What we want more than anything else In the. depot line Is more freight ter minals, so that the merchants of Omaha can get their goods In and out more promptly. As the Union Pacific and tho Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific have pur chased sites for such depots and the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul, I under stand. Is also figuring on building, It seems to me the city will profit more from this than a Joint paenger station, which we can get later. The three new freight depots will require marly mor employes to do the work, which is now carried on, after a fashion, In one crowded building, wherens a "Union depot woutd make less employes necessary. Whit we want Is work for more people, and, con sequently', a larger population. R. C. HBSNRY. SMILING REMARKS. Griggs Your wlte no longer objects to' your staying out nights. How did you mannge it?

The celebrated Dr. Abemethy of London wut firmly of the opinion that diuor ders of the stomach were the most prolifio source of human ailments in general. A recent medical writer says: "every feeling, emotion and affection reports ct tho stomach (through the system of nerves) and the stomach is affected accordingly. It is the vital center of the body ." He continues, " so we may be aid to live (tJtrtugk) the stomaoh." He goes on to show that the stomach is the vital center of the body.
