One of the associate editors headn hU list with tho cutthroat Villa, so no one of self-conceived giea-tneskjiot u the lists need feel tsrtly about it Seven for a Quarter. By the court's refusal of the In junction asked for by the street rail way company to prevent submission ot the seven-for-a-quarter Initiative ordinance at tho impending election, the question is put Up squarely to a vole of the people. It is. a reasonable inference that tho people who ride on street cars favor lower fares, and tho lower tho better. But tho merits of tho claim of the street railway that to sell seven tickets for a quarter would bo confiscation and give returns less than cost of operation, can hardly bo intelligently passed on at tho ballot box; certainly not without thorough discussion In a campaign of education. Tho peoplo ot Omaha can. how ever, relegate tho question ot fact to the courts, and this they will doubtless do by voting for soven-for- quarter. Adoption of tho ordinance will mean a law suit, more or lesj ong drawn out. and It uncertain out come but in tho end will let us know what. If any. reduction In street car fares we can enforce. If we are. entitled to more rides for a quarter than we are getting, by nil means let us have' them. The Freedom of the Press. A federal Judge has fined two New York rdportors for rofuslng to dlvttlgo their sourco of information, Their newspaper will carry the case to tho court of last resort and it could afford nothing less for tho frocdom of the press is at stake. If courts can thus coerco newspapers, tho searchlight of publicity can no longer render tho service it owes to the people. Tho Bee has often said that no legitimate interest has anything to fear from the limelight of honest publicity, but rascals havo every thing to fear. In the case at hand the publication rovcaled certain criminal practices and thoreforo contributed to tho ends of Justice, To compel disclosure of the sourco ot Information in such a caso would tend, not only to obstruct or defeat JuBtlco and protect the guilty, but What Is worse, to destroy tho essen tial power of a free, untrammeled press, which the organic law meant to vouchsafe It was old Lord Berkeley, one ot tho minions Goorgo HI sont as gov ernor of Virginia, ,who .thanked tho Lord that "wo havo no freo press in this country," and prayed that "wo shall hot havo for these hundred years." Who wants to tako a stop that would load us 'back toward George III? -Lot us noto also In paBs Ug that' tho two most conspicuous countries today without a freo-press are Russia and Mexico. Grade Crossings. The state of New York has 11.7C3 grado crossings, 1.01 tf of which aro unprotected. In six years 531 deaths rand 1,718 other accidents have been reported from those places. Tho fig ures may not strike one as appall- .lug, but they aro far too largo and they Interest us here In Omaha and Nobraska because ot tho largo num ber ot unprotected grade crossings whero casualties are constantly oc curring. Wo are Just now having ono ot tho most dangerous gradlngs in tho city fortified, but others equally as dangerous, remain Unpro tected and tho benotlcent corpora tions responsible for them have very emphatically told tho. city that they have no notion ot protecting them any time soon. Why? Havo. not the people whose lives aro imperilled nt thoso crossings, a volco in the matter? Tolerance ot these danger spots Is entirely Inex cusable. Offended Dignity. 1 "Administration officials realize," says a Washington dispatch, "that In not communicating first with vGcncral Carranza they have of fended his personal dignity and they hope to ovorcome this by con sulting him now." By all means, let us hasten to ap Poubo tho wounded sonslblllttcs ot tho Mexican brigand beforo he Is tues orders for additional American and British slaughter. And let us bo very careful that In repairing the feelings of Chrrauza we do not rouso the Ire and envy of Villa. Who could hnvc beon so careless, anyway, ot the dignity ot these gentlomen as to pu.t us'lu so dellcato and embarras sing a situation? Hbb It como to this, that tho great nation ot tho United States must consult tho proprieties ot powerless pretenders, while Its own clttzens and those of other countries are Bhot down merely to gratify the murder ous passions ot a band ot irresponsi ble outlaws? As a whole our poo pie havo been patient and patriotic in relation to the administration's do-nothing policy, but it is hard to restrain Impulses under circum stances such as these. Huerta, Car ranza and Villa in turn have shown us all the contempt they can and we are even now seeking to correct onu ot our official blunders In order, for uooth, that we may if possible avoid offending tho dignity of Carranza.

Perhaps there was somo feeling of satisfaction on tho part ot the owners of the structure, the taxpayers, when completed. They could point tho finger ot pride here, for the building is beautiful, pretentious, modern and Up-to-dato as compared, with the one It super ceded. It was here that the common people hoped to look for Justice according to "the law and tho evidence," and t- see human wrongs righted In the eyes of Justice. But In this short space ot time it seems to already havo given shelter to "fako detectives." "perjured wltneses," "blackmail lawyers" and tven the "scum ot the earth," as portrayed by your artist.

TEE J. AITCII. If Uncle Sam Owned the Railroads. NORTH PLATTE. Neb., March S.-To tho Editor ot Tho Bee: As a reader ot your paper, I would like to rise up to the point of Information and ask a fow questions. Why would not It be better to have the railroads owned by the United States government than by the heartless cor poratlons? In The Beo I read Mr. A. I Mohler's address beforo tho Hiutlng.i Chamber of Commerce, In which he. said they would not be run right by Undo Sam, and wondered what the people of Nebraska who pay taxes would say If they had to pay tho extra 12,600,000 which tho railroads now pay. Well, if Uncle Sam owned them tho taxpayers would not havo to pay an exorbitant rato for having the mail carried over the atato by these railroads, ond I think this Item by itself amounts to more than tho taxes these corporations pay. If tho Union Pacific were run by the American people, would they lay off Americans, many of them head of. large families and taxpayers, and keep tho Greeks on the pay roll, who never pay ono cent In taxes to Undo Sam? Mr. Editor, you know Omaha has kicked for years over freight rates; so haa Hasting, and so has North Platte, and so has every other town. It Undo Sam owned these roads, don't you think ho would place all towns on an equality !n regard to freight rates, as ho does when wo send a letter or a bundle by parcel post? If Uncle Sam owned the railroads and gave pood Bervlco, which wo know he would, there would need bo no com petition and we would not need a dozen roads In North Platte no more than wo need a dozen postottlce buildings In this town.
