The Embargo On Arms.
Everyone will acclaim tho wisdom of the
president's order re-establishing; tho ombargo
i on the shipment of arms from this country lntj
' Mexico. Whether wo aro technically at wur
with Mexico or not, it would be tHo height" ot
folly under present conditions to permit .h5
Mexicans to continue to come oyer hero to aa
cure guns and ammunition, regardless' of 'wli&l
uso they might be Intended.
By tho same reasoning (ho lifting by Presi

President Taft appears now In the light" of later
i events to havo been a mistake. President Wil
son .and his .advisers doubtlers thought that .In
giving -the rebels the privilege of buying' of u
arms that would enable thorn to mako headway
against tho Hucrta forces they were thereby
helping to solvo the Mexican problem.,, or at

Trying to Arrange Peace Conference.
This Is tho narrative glvtn to the Brooklyn Eagle
by William It. Ellis, who, with Dr. Bernabe Bar
rios, undertook a secret mission to General Huerta
In the hope of securing co-operation with the ad
ministration of President Wlfson, only to return last
month unsuccessful:
"Our first Interview wfth President Huerta took
placo at his private residence. It lasted practically
all night, and the results of the first conference were
cabled to New York Actual negotiations were ,thn
begun which might have ultimately adjusted the Mexi
can situation, so far as Hucrta and President Wil
son were concerned, had not an unforeseen event
happened which shattered completely the work we
had done. At" .this particular moment General
Huerta looked" with favor upon any proposition that
would bring about a closer and more friendly re
lationship betwten his sovehiment and that ot the
United States.
"President Huerta expressed admiration for Presi
dent Wilson. He said that he thought that Wilson
waa doing what he considered -to .bo the right thing
But Huerta also said that no one could complain of
tho treatment of Americans other foreigners by
him. Ho hoped, he said, that ths American pplo
would find some way to recognize the ' Mexican gov
ernment, as recognition meant An immediate end to
the war, and the salvage; of hundreds of millions of
dollars Worth of property and thousands wf lives..

" Both Sides Playing the'Oanae.
In the senate the other day Senator Kern
of Indiana exposod what he thought was a. start
ling dlccovery, of .insidious agencies at wortt
manufacturing public Bontlmont against froo'
tolls-, repeal, and for the particular purpose of
onibarrnsfilnrff not Intimidating, tho opponents
of lolls exomptloh, Ho presontod and had read
to his colloagucs ,tho following telegram ai

view og Business men and get thrm to say some
thing hot. ENQUIItEn.
Senatqr Kern declared at tho samo tlmu
that It is but right that the public should know
how these intervlows,i supposed to reprosent
popular feeling, aro obtained and printed. Out
If- Senator Kern wanted to bo porfoctly fair he
would have, added that both sides are playing
the samo game in their efforts to stimulate aa
appearance of .public sentiment behind them,
To be perfectly fair he should also havo had in
sorted In the Congressional Record a message
- which Secretary ot State Bryan has sent to each
and every one bf the readers of his Commoner
asking them to shower their representatives In
Washington with cqunter-tolegrams and letten.
This Is tho Bryan message as it appeara In blacu
faced type In the April Issue of his personally
conducted mouthpiece:
'All who are opposed to a ihlp subsidy and all
who beltev that the United State should keep fftlth
with othe. nafons are urged to Immediately write
or wlrs their senators to assist the president In bring.
Ing atout the repeal of the canal tolls bill now pend
ing before tho Unlttd Stairs senate.
Tho Bryan appeal would be just as good an
object lesson for Senator Kern to use as tho
othor, except for the fact that It exposes the ac
tivities of the Wilson administration to drlvu
recalcitrant senators Into lino by thq very meth
ods which are denounced when used to obstruct,

The supreme court of North Carolina calls
a halt In tho segregation plans Inaugurated by

ordinance establishing tones for whites ana

tional. The fact that a southern court felt im
pelled to check tho growth of harassing laws
against the blacks Is a welcome sign ot broad
ening humanity.
Sackrsted Formation of International Com
mlttrc
"Our definite suggestion was that a committee of
twenty leading men, from both Mexico arid the
United Btates, should meet and rirawi up a plan for
bringing about an agreement between the two coun
tries. This plan, when drawn up. was to be laid
before President Wilson and President Huerta for
their approval. '
'President Huerta seriously' considered the propo
sition. He told ua.he appreciated out motives and
that thft idea was a good. one. And then' occurred
an event which completely ruined the entire scheme.
"The embargo on arms wo lifted fof the rebels by
President Wilton. Negottatlona -were ImmeClately
broken off by Prpsidenf Huerta.
"'It Js now a fight to the. .finish .and death,' said
President Huerta.
"Although President HUerta .had not definitely
committed himself at the time." continued Mr. Ellis,
"It seemed ps If the plan would go through. After
the embargo on arms waa lifted, however. General
Huerta plainly was opposed to any peace scheme.
Snya Emhartro LlftlnR Win n MUtnltr..
' "It seems as If the government of the United
States wants to allow us to exterminate ourselves,'
,sald President Huerta. "There Is nothing I can do as
representative of tho Mexican government except to
fight, tt Is no time to talk peace!'
"Thus our mission failed. President Huerta thanked
us and gave me a large photograph with his slgna
ture. There was nothing for It but to pack up and
return to New York. We landed In Brooklyn from the
steamship Esperanza a little more than a fortnight
ago.
"The lifting of the arms embargo waa a great mis
take on tho part of the Washington government. In
my dplnion. So Is tho policy of nonrccognltlon. Of
course President Wilson has a perfect right not to
recognize Huerta, If he. In hla own Judgment, thinks
It inadvisable. That Is a right accorded to the prcsl
dent of the republic, and no one will doubt that the
president Is honest in his opinion. But had recogni
tion been accorded It. seems almost certain that the
present revolution would not have gained such head
Wttyl That would have depended, of course, on the
strength of Huerta'a army.
"There Is one solution to the situation which has
been suggested to those In. Intimate contact with
Mexican affairs, but of which the general public, I
believe, ,knpws but little. It President. Huerta sHpuld
resign, and,, going north, take charge pf tho army
and fjght .the rebols, something might be accom
plished. It has been suggested that he leave tho
presidency to Jos Lopez y Portlllo y Rojas, his min
ister of foreign affairs, a man of great talent and
ability. He has the respect 'of his enemies as well
as his friends, .nd xvou'd, no doubt, make an Ideal
president.
"In case the American government, with pressuro
or otherwise, eliminated Prea'dent Huerta, who would
be president in his stead? That Is a hard question
to answer, Predictions are dangerous and are apt to
be upset by unforseen circumstances. Let's look
over the field for a moment and see who the possible
candidates might be In such a case.
Who Would Take llaerta'a PIncef
"Genoral Carranza Is an Intelligent and clever of
ficer and gentleman, but In my opinion I do not
think that General Carranza has sufficient strength
to control his forces. Should President Huerta re
sign, be removed, or defeated by the lnsurrectos, he
would still have such a great following that General
Carranza would have difficulty In bringing peace to
the country.
"As for General Felix Diaz, he Is a brave, honest
courageous young man, who Is known all over thi
republic us a man of honor, loyal and royal to his
friend. He would make an excellent president. He
Is a man that has never taken advantage of a chance.

A Man With Money
In His Pocket
should, read the Real Estate col
umns of The Bee. Such opportuni
ties .should never be passed with
out notice by a man who has any
desire to own a home or make a
profitable investment. The day
has long passed when there was
any doubt as to the future increase
in value of Omaha Real Estate.
Those who had foresight a few
years ago have observed with sat--isfaction
the rapid rise in value of
their holdings.
Yet, prices for available property
are consistently low. This year
will, undoubtedly, however, mark
a big rise in values and the man
who recognizes this and takes ad
vantage of it is making the winning
bid for big profits on his money.
The history of the growth of every large
city in this country today is intermingled
with the history of the making of many
large fortunes, by men who realized what
the opportunities of a growing city meant.
The Bee's Real Estate Columns today are'
worth looking over. You are doing your
self an injustice if you fail to share in the
opportunities offered.
