Having had tardy access to "tho exact word ing" of the now treaty negotiated with Colom bia by President Wilson and Secretary Bryan, adherents of tho administration are now de claring that It "puts a different face" on tho "apology" which has caused so much heated comment In this country. Examination of the text, It Is true, discloses a careful uso of diplo matic phrases, but docs not, so far as wo can see, make tho document any less an admUslon that tho Unltod States has, In a blameworthy way, offended Colombia and Ib exerting its bes offorts to appease. Quoting tho language of the treaty, referring back to the 1903 troubles, tho government of tho United States "oxpresscii Blnccro regret that anything should have oc curred to Interrupt or to mar tho relations of cordial friendship that had so long subsisted botweon the two nations" and tho government of Colomobia "accepts this declaration." Uncle Sam docs not bow low and say "1 am sorry" nor does Colombia bow In return and respond "I accept tho apology," but tho sum and substanco of It Is precisely the Barae. Let It be noted, too, that nowhere In tho wholo document Is there any word by which Colomobia on Its side expresses sincere regret so that the United States can accopt that decla ration. On the contrary, other stipulations- of the treaty make it plain which country Is "ro grettlng," for with tho payment of a $26,000, 000 largesse, "gold," and tho freedom of tho Panama canal thrown In for full meaauro, Co lombia would havo every reason to "rojolco" and not the somblance of an excuse to "regret." Action. The-current number of a little Journal Is sued by tho KansaB City Commercial 'club bears this slogan: The Three Things to Do: Tho best thing-Do something and do it right; tho next best thing-Do something and do it wrong; tho unpardonable thing To do nothing. The thomo is action. -"To fall at all Is to fall utterly," Lowell put It. Llfo, itself, is lit tle mpro than an experiment supplemented wlt'j sorrow and tho right way generally comes from doing the wrong way often enough and long enough. Only tho man falls who stopB trying. Failure Is nothing that comes of effort. It ia told of Jehu Baker, once conspicuous In con gress from Illinois, that in a campaign for re election bo thus addrossed an audience: "All you men who have made mistakes In your life time pleaso stand up," whereupon hundreds rose, only a half dozen remaining seated. "Now, you aro the follows whoso votes I want. My opponent can have tho others." ' It Is a good Uttlo slogan, not only for cltiea that aro out to accomplish things, but for In dividuals as well. It stands for tho Idealistic, inspires constant effort, "To do nothing" not only is unpardonable, it Is abominable. It stands for all that Is worthless; it is another name for retrogression. Action is tho thlng And "action," somebody has said, "is but coarsened thought thought bocome concrote." No action, then, no thought. Perhaps Kansas City may find that Its Uttlo slogan will prove acceptable to other wide .awake commercial organizations like Its , own. As to Ballot Rotation. An Interesting development of the now elec tion system is promised by the demand of the opponents of university consolidation for the rotation Of the official ballot on tho proposition for and against consolidation. Tho rotated bal lot has so far prevailed only In tho primary election, having boon engrafted upon tho pil mary law for tho purpose of nullifying, or off setting, tho Ignorant or indifferent vote that would put a crossmark opposite the first name under each subdivision to the unearned ad van. tage of tho top man, and the disadvantage of those who, by reason of tardy filing or alpha betical inferiority, wore lower down In tho col umn, Rotation has not yet been adopted In Ne braska for the regular election ballot, tho point of vantage still bolng accordod to the party which In tho preceding election recorded the highest number of votes, except in tho new non partisan Judicial ballot, which, we believe, is to have the rotated form. The thoory of rotation is, of course, that the voters affected by it havo no knowledge 'of or preference for any of the candidates for a par ticular office, and therefore the ballots cast bj them should bo equalized as between the candi dates. How this can apply to a definite propo sition such as a constitutional amendment, a bond issue, an Initiative measure, or a refer endum like the university proposition, is not entirely clear. A voter wthout a sufficient understanding to be for or against, and sufr ctent Intelligence to vote as he desires, would noturally not vote for the proposition at all. While It is quite conceivable that a xaero list or candidates' namea conveys no information tha. would warrant a decision as between them, the mere statement of the gist of a constitutional amendment or a proposed law ought to bo onough, especially after the education affordel the voter through tho official explanatory hand book with which ho is to bo supplied, Tho inltlatlvo and referendum prevails la about a dozen states, and the popular ratltlca ton or rojectlon of constitutional amendments is common to all of the states, but we have yet to hear of oae of them whero tho principle of rotation has been so applied. An interview by Senator Norris that to be ing distributed by the votes-for-women publicity bureau starts out, "We have never voted on woman suffrage In our state." Just to set th senator right, lot us remind him that a woman suffrage amendment to tho constitution of Ne braska was submitted in tho election of ma, and the returns when canvassed nhowed 25,750 votCB tor and 50,693 against It. The people of Mexico aro said to be kept from getting the real news of the war. We remember that was the complaint, too, with reference to the people of Spain when the fight was on-with that country. It must be Just human nature for folks involved In war to spread good reports, and shut tho ear to bad news. A' local fake-reform organ protests against the county board spending S500 to protect the taxpayers against a 150,000 Jail-feeding graft. Who all are In on the divvy, anyway? Th Stark PI. SOUTH OMAHA, May 10. To the Editor of The Beo: A stuck pig always squeals. My article, "Democratic Inconsistencies" must have- stuck the fellow, C. W. Clark of Union, Neb., pretty hard from tho way he squeals. He must be from the stripe of copperhead democrats of the times of the war of the rebellion, who called Lincoln an npe and babboon and called the soldier of the union army "Lincoln hirelings" and "Lincoln dogs." I am not so young that I did not see them wearing copperhead pins and hear them curse Abraham Lincoln. When I was a boy It was called the "war of the rebellion," but In these days of "progressive" ideas It is called the civil war. I do not see where the "civil" comes In when it Is known that tens of thousands of the finest boys from the north wore starved to death In the vile prison pens of the south and thousands more of them came out with health broken for life. It seems to me that the proper name for it, if tho name has to be changed, would bo to call it the un civilised war of the south against the north. This man Clark said I would eat the flesh from every democrat In tho United States. My wife says I have a huge appetite, but it would havo to bo largo for me to try to cat the flesh from even ono democrat, and I would have to be "awful hungry" to try to cat a democrat. This man Clark does not seem to like my article, but men who know more in a minute than he. over will know have told me It was the finest production that I have ever had published. So that all do not agree. The coward is the one who will use the "licking" argument when h fa beaten in a verbal or written argument. A coward and bully Is tho only ono that wilt uso the language that Clark uses In his "reply" to me. Ho probably la ono who votes the straight democratic ticket and would do so, even If the devil was one of the candidates for office, just because he happened to bo on his ticket. Though I am an Abraham Lincoln Jnmes O. Blalne-Wllllam McKInley-Jo-seph Q. Cannon republican of the old school without any of the "progressive" foolishness or nonsense about me, yet I will wager that I have voted for far more democrats than this fellow who uses the language of a blackguard In attempting to reply to my recent lttter, has repub licans. He had better read my letter again before ho claims that I believe every democrat to be a rebel. But I do claim that the old robel clement Is in the saddle In this country today, but they will not remain in power' long from the Indications of revival of the republican party In every part of tho United States and the tide will become so high and sweeping that the republican party will be restored to power by overwhelming' majorities in 1916. F. A. AGNEW. Backbone Vru I'le. GRAND ISLAND, Neb., May 9.-To tho Editor of Tho Bee; In your Issuo of to day a letter from a Mr, Clark appears in criticism of another from Mr. Agne-v. Mr, Clark's letter Is undoubtedly from a true-hearted democrat, for who but a true hearted democrat would have ability to exhibit such a wonderful tendency toward such a tine attempt at democrat ic oratory, the greatest value of which has been to give the English language tho word mug-wamp to hurl at tho politi cal giants of democracy, whoso chief history Is known by their faults? Mr. Clark would havo us believe that Mr. Agnew would Jlko nothing better than a toothsome morsel of democratic flesh. We know that democrats ,have no appetlto for such fare, but would rather dangle their legs at the pie coun ter and sink their political fangs Into any old plo on tho counter, or lap the crumbs that fall their way poor half starved rascals. They've been hungry a long while. During the present adminis tration at I2C0 a year pittance is sought for and fought for and devoured with cannaballstlo glee, and a ISO a month morsel Is big enough and contains so many indigestible qualities, not comput able with local party security, that com mand the devotion and censorship of the able and honorable secretary of state, the hero of many brain attempts to run the bake shop on his own hook. The accidental democratic administra tion at present 1 only a link in the chain of political evolution. Mr. Clark, and is a part of the course showing the survival of the fittest the republican party, which will be naturally selected by voters who know back-bone from pie. a. o. v. Knianclpat'lnn of Wnmnn. OMAHA, May 10. To the Editor of The. Bee: Your correspondent, D. R. J., in "A Plea for Votes for Women," asks why It is that if men wish to protect their daughters, "the world is full of girls, scarcely more than children, struggling to earn a pitiful living, robbed of all tho Joys that belong to youth?" Now what, in the name of common sense, las suf frage to do with present day industrial conditions, which have forced young girls, through the poverty or inability of their parents to support them, Into fac tory or department store? What have politicians, or the laws, or cuff i age to do with business conditions, under which male labor has been crowded out by fe male labor? Do suffrage advocates really believe they can remedy such con ditions through the ballot? Again your correspondent says: "Our boys are not safe, and many a mother would altuddar with horror if she knew the temptations that beset his path In the walks of everyday life." Now what temp tations are there more alluring, more calculated to arouse the passions, than present day female attire? Is it only through suffraBb and the ballot that women can be Induced to abandon the im modesty ir not Indecency of today's fash ions in dress? It has always setmed to me that one of the most potent argu ments against woman suffrage is her en slavement to fashion. It women are to be emancipated politically, they should first emancipate themselves from the ex pensive and degenerating slavery -of the fashion plate. If that can b accom plished moro quickly through the ballot, then by all means let us extend the fran chise to women Immediately. A. L. M. Spirit of the Fsithrra, x Baltimore American. The J.C0) delegates to tha convention of the 'Daughters of the American Rev olution, voted unanimously to offer their services to the government In the Mexican crisis In any capacity. This howa genuine patriotism and proves that the spirit of their fathers is still strong in the organisation. They specify no pre ferred sphere of action: merely express a wish to be useful. An offer to help In that way means all that it says. Villa's Villanous Record The Rebel Leader's Trail of Crime Among; Noncombatants. General Francisco Villa, leader of the constitu tional force in northtrn Mexico, Is more frequently In the public -eye than the Spaniard, Carranza, whom he Is presumed to serve. His press bureau Is far moro actvle and hi dash as a commander vocalizes hi Importance as a news maker, overshadowing foi tho tlmo being the trail of murder, plunder and ut rago which maps his field of operation. Murder, plunder and outrage are Villa' specialties. He was reared that way, and increasing opportunities have made him a master hand in the business. To American his career is worth studying In connection with his published appeal to tho United States to raise the embargo on war material and the .certainty that with constitutionalist success ho will sit close to If not actually in the presidential chalr of Mexico. Villa' Start. A. biography of Villa compiled by the Boston Tran script and read by Senator Lodge In tho United States senate last week, supplies tho following facts: Francisco Villa was born at Lna Nleves in the state of Durango about the year 1868. He Is wholly un educated, being unable to read and barely able to sign his name. About the year 18S2, when only 14 years of ago, he wn sentenced to a term of Imprison ment for cattle stealing. On hi discharge b settled in the mining camp of Guanacevl, where a few months later he underwent another sentence of Imprisonment for homicide. When ho came out of prison for tho second time ho organized a band of robbers, which had their headquarters in the mountainous region of "Perico" In the state of Durango, and were the terror of all that district. In tho year 1907 he was in partnership with one Francisco rtexa, stealing cattle In Chihuahua and Bell ing them in the United States, and then stealing mules and horse in the United States and selling them In Chihuahua. In consequence of some disagreement he shot and killed Bexa in broad daylight, while sitting in tho plaza In the City of Chihuahua. During tho early part of November,, 1910, he attacked the factory of a Mr. Soto, in Allcnde, state of Chihuahua, and killed tho owner. By threatening tho latter's daughter ho forced her to show whero sho had hidden a sum of J 11, COO, which he stole and used for arming a consid erable force. Ho then Joined Madero's devolution, uniting hi band with Urblna's column. In January, 1911, he wa at Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, where he killed Carlos Alatorre and Luis Ortiz for refusing to pay him the money ho demanded for their ransom. At Batopllas, stato of Chihuahua, In February of the same year he tortured a lady named Senora Maria do la Luz Gomez until ho made her pay him $30,000. She died from the effect of tho barbarous treatment she received. Ontratren nt Jtinre. When Cludad Juarez wa taken from tho federals In May. 1913, he killed Senor Ignacio Gomez Oyola, a man of over sixty year of ago, under tho following circumstances: Having sent for him, Villa asked whether ha had any arms in his house, and on saying he had not, Villa, "who was seated on a tabic," drew hi revolver and shot him dead. After rifling the corpse of money and valuables it wab thrown into the street. After the triumph of the revolution, Villa, In No vember, 1911, obtained a monopoly from the then gov ernor of Chihuahua for the salo of meat In the city of Chihuahua, which he procured by stealing cattle from tho neighboring farms, Suspecting one of his subordinates, Cristobal Juarez, of stealing on his own account, he killed him one night In tho latter part of November In tho Callo de la Llbertad. In the early part of May, 1913, Villa, with seventy five men, assaulted a train at Bacza, state of Chihua hua, that wa carrying bars of gold and silver valued at 100,000 pesos, killing the crew and several passen gers, including Messrs. Caravante and a, Senor Jsaao Herrero of Cludad, Guerrero. Lato in the same month he entered the town of 'San Andres, Chihuahua, and assaulted the house of Senor Saba Murga, an Haclendado, who, vtlth hi two eons, tried t6 defend themselves. Two of tho JVphew wer killed, but tho Murga got away. Villa then got hold of two sons-in-law of Murga who had not taken any part In the fight, and after torturing them to say where their father-in-law had hidden his money, he- had them killed. Massacre nt Conns Grandes. In July, 1913. Villa took Casas Grandes, Chihuahua, and shot more than eighty noncombatants, violating several young girls, amongst them two young ladles named Castillo. He attacked and took the town of San Andres, which was held by the federals, in September, 1913, shooting many peaceable residents and more than 150 prisoners, many of these being women and children. In shooting theso people, in order to economize cart ridges, he placed one behind the other up to five at one time, very few of them being killed outright. Thu bodies of the dead and wounded were then soaked with petroleum and thrown Into bonfires prepared for the purpose. The prisoners were forced themselves to make the bonfire and cover with etroleum the rest of th victims. After this he went to the small town of- Carretas, where he took prisoner an old man of more than seventy years of age, named Jose Dolores Moreno, demanding from him a ransom of ISO. As he could not pay Villa killed him with his own ha.nd. On September S9, 1913, Villa, having overpowered a force of over COO federals commanded by General Al vlrez, at Avlles, fifteen kilometers from Torreon, had very prisoner shot. Villa haa ahot in Chihuahua 160 noncombatants, the greater number poor people who could not leave for want of means, or because they thought they ran no risk, as they took no part In politics. For all the people in any way connected with the government had loft before Villa entered the city. Special mention may ybe made of the case of Senor Ignacio Irigoyen and Senator Jose A. Yanez, who, though in no wa connected with politics, were taken by Villa and tor tured for several day with threat to shoot thorn until they paid ransoms of 130,000 each. Having ob tained from Villa himself safe conduct to leave by train for the border, the train in which they were wa caught up at the station of Montezuma by a locomotive in which were several officer in Villa's confidence, headed by an ex-Maderlsta deputy called Miguel Baca Ronqulllo, who took them from the train and shot them in the presence of the passenger. Twice Told Tales Brother Mine, A certain curate wa of a painfully nervous tem perament, and In consequence was constantly mak ing awkward remarks Intended as compliments to the bishop and others. Having distinguished himself in an unusual decree during a gathering of clergy at an afternoon tea a short while ago in the bishop's palace, he was taken to task for his fallings by a senior curate, who ws one of lit companion on the way home. "Look here.'' said Simms, the senior, decidedly, "you are a donkey. Why can't you keep quiet Instead of making your asslnlna remarks? I'm speaking to you now as a brother." Loud laughter interrupted him at this point, and for the moment he did not get the joke. Pittsburgh Chronlcle-Tclesraph. Her Chickens Not Mental.
