What Is Wart In asking approval of his plan to employ tho army and navy to compel compliance with our demands upon the Mexican dictator, tho presi dent says that such action would not be war, and expresses tho earnest hope "that war Is not now In question." That raises the whole subject as to what constitutes war, and where peaceful relations end and war begins. The accepted definition of war Is "an armed contest between states or parts of states," and It Is explained that such :i contest Is undertaken by one state against an other for the purpose of compelling tho offend ing stnto to fulfill Its obligations. Tho founders of the republic had tho notion, a notion not peculiar to them at the time, that there could be no war without Its formal decla ration, and our constitution, therefore, provides that, although the president Is commander-in chlof of all armed forces, with practically no limitations upon his war power, the right to do claro war Is exclusively vested In congress. But It Is common knowledge that a state of war, as a rule, comes Into actual existence as n result of acuto conditions that do not wait for any rcsolutlng or proclaiming by anyone to glvo them formal recognition. It Is an act of war whonover the government or representatives of ono nation vlolato tho sovereignty of another. How far hostile action must go to provoke complete cossatlon of peaceful relations and precipitate armed conflict depends upon circum stances. President Wilson may not considnr tho selzuro of Mexican soaports by our navy to be war, but tho Mexicans may regard It In a different light. Wo are not sure whothor lio would call It wa? If tho situation wero reversed, and Great Britain, for oxample, should solxo two of our American ports to enforce redress of real or fancied grievance War, lot It be remembered, Is a condition of hostility Into which nations may either drift slowly or bo suddenly drawn by somo flagrant ovort act. Tho definition of war mav bo com. pletely fulfilled without any declaration of war. and even wbfcro ono or both aides are still insist ing that they nro doing their best to avoid war. Stepping-Stone Offices- Thfl recent, rinnlalnn nf ttm aiinriini - " OUf.CUU WUll blighting the receptive candidacies of nnv nrH- ont Btate officers aspiring to other eloctlvo stato jods probably goes as far as the constitution warrants, out tho application of tho rulo against stopping-stone offices could be much wider lthout dotrlment to tho public service.

A constitutional amendment requiring every elective offlco-holdor to retire from nuhHn iifn after serving his second term, If ho ovor gets n second terra, would be mighty ovorybody but tho offlco-holders. Foreign Opinion. Knowing that our own viowo are nnt to h Unconsciously warped by projudlco or personal Interest, or formod at too close ranee to affnni tho propor perspective, tho opinions of the for eign press upon tho Mexican crisis aro particu larly reassuring to our position. These newspapers, voicing tho sentiment r tho respective European countries, almost with out exception indlcato approval of tho inoro ag gressive movo of President Wilson, and tho dis continuance of tho "watchful waiting" policy, which thoy all along condemned as a mistake. In England and Germany, more partlculurh', tao consensus of expression Is wondormcnt that the United States should have bo lone toiflmtnd the Impossible assumptions of Huerta. Foreign opinion Is unanimous that Moxlcan opposition, cither federal or constitutionalist, or both com bined, can put up no effective bar, to tho execu tion oi American plans, and that intervention by tho United States throws out the best DromUn of restoring peace and order. It goes without Baying that tho foreign interests in Mexico, hav ing no recourse to their own governments, would welcome anything tho United States may do to ie-establlsh conditions there favorable to tho resumption of business, with ample protection to life and property. All through comment of the foreign news papers, however, runs a strain pf distrust of our diplomatic resourcefulness. That wo can stoj with a naval blockade Is not believed, and no great confldpnce is placed In our disclaimer ot Intention toward .territorial aggrandtzemenh The London Graphic bluntly says: "Tho wur Is not an accldont, but a thing predestined by lrroslstlblo causes," and tho necessity of the United States protecting Its Interests In Mexico, and Its still greater interests in the Panama canal to the south of Mexico, and our right to have a friendly government In t,ho Intervening country, is recognized and conceded. Tho conclusion Is justified from theso first expressions of foreign opinion that tho Euro pean powers will continue as interested spoctu tors and, that while on tho surface thoy are the position of neutrals, tho United States wl! havo tho benefit of their moral support.

OMAHA, April .-To the Editor of The Bee: The New York World takes Mrs. Inez Mllholland BolsAcvaln to task for suggesting that society la somewhat responsible for the fate of the four men executed at Sing Sing Monday morning. It claims that only these criminals should be censured for their deeds, and that their punishment was deserved. The editor of tho World would not allow his children to play about a saloon or a gambling den or a house of Ill-fame, let alono let them live In such atmos pheres. He would not want them to as sociate with children who appeared all right, but of whom he knew nothing. He probably sends his children to church ami Sunday school. Why all this? He wants his children to grow up In good surroundings. And he Is right. Most of lis recognize tho Importance ot environ ment. Eminent sociologists say men are largely tho product of education, environ ment and heredity. Iet tho second bo unfavorable, and tho first and last are often fatally handicapped as powers for good. The Influence of heredity, more over. Is derived from the environments and experiences of many generations. Centuries of poverty and misery are bound to bear unlovely fruit. (This Ik no aoplogy for criminals. The criminal is a fool as well as a knave. Ho tries to fight society single-handed and wrest from it a living without labor. Ho Is a parasite. So Is the professional tramp, begging from door to door. Now who encourages crime? Who produces the parasites among the poor? Certainly not the nposttes of social Justice). No sano person' looks down on useful or manual labor. Thoso benighted souls. who do arc to be found almost exclus ively among the very class with which the editor nf the World associates. Sirs. Bolsxevatn and her kind are never guilty of It. Honest labor Is honorable. But today It In penalized. Shrewdness Is richly" rewarded. Productive ability Is poorly paid everywhere. Those who prophesy a co-operative commonwealth proclaim the dignity of labor and a time when labor will be as powerful and as prosperous as It is dignified. The present system degrades labor. The coming one will exalt It, wilt raise It to a high and a perpetual pinnacle. EDMUND R. BRUMBAUGH. 1535 Camden Avenue. Krefe' lint Nnt In the ninir. WALTHIM,. Neb., April 20.-To The Editor of The Bee: 1 wish you would print no more stories in your paper about mo being a candidate for congress from the Third district. I have no ambition along that line. At present my only am bition Is to continue tho practice of my profession to the best ot my ability and to continue to llvo in Walthlll.v It would bo asking, too much of a sacrifice ot a man to move to Washington after he had lived In Waithlll for a while, I havo Just finished several terms of service on tho town board and could not be expected now to accept a lessor honor. I am will ing to salute the flag or go to Mexico to assist In teaching Huerta how to behavo himself, but 1 draw tho lino at going to congress becaueo I know a little about It. For tho lust quarter of a century the pcoplo of tho Third district havo not kept a man In congress long enough to do any mora than find his eiat In the house. As soon as no Is elected the political exe cutioner begins to sharpen his axe. Our congressman como and go so rapidly It would tako a moving1 picture llm to record them. As soon as a man gcta In a position to represent the dlstrlot effici ently, ho must step aside and let tho plum fall to some other party henchman who will blunder around Washington for a term then tho story Is repeated. Dan Stephens lias represented the district as well aa any demoocrat could be expected to, but now his party ia bringing the aerl ous charge against him that he la tread ing on tho toea of somo ot the party leaders and that he has invited the whole people of tho district whom ho repre sents to tho pie-counter to servo the political pastries Instead of permitting tho "flunkies" to gorgo themselves alone. I nm not a politician and not supposed to know anything about political ethics, and consequently havo nothing to say about this democratic row. We have heard a whole tot of patriotic things Bald In tho past few years 'about breaking away from party politics and voting for the man, and about a boss-ridden people, and we were led to believe that the peo ple wero trying to break away from the so-called evil ot party politics, but the present hue and cry against Dan would hardly confirm all ot these nice theories. I ant Inclined to think that the people of this district will find enough patriotlo gentlemen whose friends will press them into the republican race for jcongreas at tho primary meet so that t will not bo misted, HARRY U KEEFB.

Strong, Member of the New York Bar. The subject of fees Is a sensitive point with lawyers. Judging from experience, it is also a sen sitive point with cilents. The dlffloulty ot Hxlng a fee which will meet the approval of the cllont and at the same time com pensate the lawyer waa Illustrated by a story re lated to mo by Senator Bpooner as having actually occurred. A good many years ago a well-to-do cot ton merchant brought an action In one ot the south ern states to recover certain cotton or Its value amounting to about J7S,0. Tho action was in the hands of counsel to whom he had been recommended, but In the course tf tho preparation of tho case for trial he became dissatisfied aa to their ability to con duct the case successfully, and waa at a loss what to do. It so happened that as he waa returning from their offices to his hotel he saw at a distance an old acquaintance who at one time had been a most pros perous and capable lawyer In Chicago, but, through unfortunate circumstances, he'd been obliged to aban don hts practice and was reduced almost to penury. The merchant Inquired as to what he was doing, and the other explained his hopeless condition owing to Inability to find anything to do. "How would you like to try a lawsuit?" said the merchant. "How would I like to try a law suit? Why, I would like to try a lawsuit better than do anything else on earth." "Well," said the merchant, "come with mo to my hotel and I will explain my case to you, and then I will tako you to my lawyers and arrange for you to try It." This was like the sound of martial muslo to the old war-horse, and the Introduction and explanation took place. The caeo came on in a few days, and the threadbare lawyer won It triumphantly. Then there came to his mind the question of his fee. He did not know what to charge; he wondered If ZOO would bo too largo; then ho thought perhaps It had better bo only $260; but that seemed small, and per haps he had better charge 300; and he laid awake al most nil tho night, undecided whether tho fee should bo KM or $300. Tho following morning he started for tho offlco of tho attorneys In tho case, and who should ho sco approaching lilm, all smiles, but his op portune client. Greeting him with the greatest of- fusion, the client took out one ot those lonir pocket- books which held bills lengthwise, and opening it, extracted a package ot $o0n bills. He handed One of them to the lawyer in sllonco; ho followed it with another, and that with n. third, then followed a fourth, and finally a fifth, and, looking up, he In quired; "Will that be satisfactory for the work you did yesterday?" "Well,"' replied tho Impecunious one. "add another, and that will bo enough." i Almost all lawyers, I believe, prefer fees which arc based upon tho reasonable valuo of their services. considering tho result secured. This is undoubtedly the ethical basis of' practicing law, and It receives the approval of the bnr associations and ot the best ele ment of tho profession. The Income of lawyers has always been a subject of Interest, not only to lawyers, but to laymen. There are few subjects, probably, that aro more matters ot guess work than thUftcspcclally as lawyers arc very loth to disclose the amount of their receipts. Many are credited, from 'outward' Indications, with receiving far moro than thoy actually receive, while others, crodltcd with receiving llttlo because of their quiet and inconspicuous practice, are in receipt of Incomes that would occasion' 'surprise it the amount were known. Outward Indications amount to little. Large and expensive offices and a "bold front' Impress the credulous, but they are generally dcceptlva, Ot the entire body of 8,000 lawyers In tho city ot Now York, probably 10 per cent aro In receipt of vory respectable incomes. One-eighth of' tho 800 may bo In receipt of incomes, of $00,000 or more! another 100 may bo re ceiving between $15,000 and t26,000; and the remainder will receive from $10,000 to nearly $16,000. If the In comes of lawyers were revealed, It would probably occasion surprise to find how few lawyers receive moro than $2,600 a year. Fees based upon tho contingency ot success or falluro in litigation havo since early times been gen erally condemned, resulting In statutes against cham perty and maintenance. Tho former is described by Blackstone as "a bargain with a plaintiff or defen dant campum partiro to divldo the land or other matters sued for between them If they prevail at law, whereupon the champertor Is to carry on the party's suit at his own expense';; and the latter aa "officious meddling in a Butt that no way belongs to one by assisting either party, with money or other wise, to prosecute or defend." There were offenses at common law as against good morals and aa tend ing to encourage and foster litigation. It Is undoubt edly true that contingent feos In a litigation are, gen erally speaking, objectionable as offering a means to unscrupulous lawyers for exacting unconscionable fees. Reputable members of tho profession of the law at all times have generally disapproved them. Recently a code of ethics promulgated by the State Bar association, haa criticised contingent feea severely, but. notwithstanding the statutes, under whloh, as was said nearly thirty years ago, no prose cution had been had within the memory ot men liv ing, and tho general disapproval of them by repu table practitioners, I think it may safely bo said that a considerable proportion of the litigation pend ing In the courts In negligence cases or actions for personal injuries founded upon neglect of duty, as well as many mercantllo caBcs and tho BUllts formerly so numerous against the elevated roads for compen sation to abutting owners, have been, and now are, conducted on this basis. There are cases in the ex perience of every reputable lawyer In which It would be a practical denial ot Justice to the unfortunate, oppressed, and Impecunious client If the lawyer were unwilling to undertake their cause and lot the size of his fees depend upon the result ot the litigation, oven though there were no definite agreement to that effect. Undoubtedly in certain kinds ot cases, such aa those Involving personal injuries, unscrupuloua law yers exact agreements for contingent fees which are harsh and oppressive. They make no distinction be- 'tween cases that are plain and those that are doubt ful, and they generally require an agreement for one half of the amount recovered, besides the taxable costs, wlUch are frequently considerable. Such agree ments, In my opinion, aro unfair and should bo con demned, and when questioned should be under the supervision of tho courts, and the burden of proving that they are Just, fair, and reasonable should be upon the lawyer who procures them. Making It a business to undertake cases upon a contingent basis should be discouraged. Undertaking business of this character, except under special circumstances, wilt havo an un favorable eXfect upon a lawyer's practice, especially tho young practitioner, who will soon find that his praotlce Is being built up on cases ot contingent fees, with a consequent decline In his professional stand ing. Propor regard for legitimate professional meth ods is the expectation of a reasonable compensation for services rendered, in which the result secured should havo due consideration.
