It Is worth noting that the only topics on which Colonel Roosevelt ling made publlo pro nouncement since his return from South Amer ica are thoso In which there Is the most substan tial agreement between the different elements of republicans past and present. The colonel Is emphatic in his opposition to the proposed Colombian treaty, with Its apol ogetic preface and its $25,000,000 hand-out as balm for wounded feelings. He rightly de clares that such a backdown by our government I uncalled for and Inexcusable, and should not be tolerated by the peoplo of this country. Again, on the exemption of our own coast wise shipping from Panama canal tolls, the colonel lb distinctly opposed to repeal either as a concession to Great Britain or as a relinquish ment of our hope to hold and develop this car rying trade. The farthest he would go would be to consent to arbitrate any claims set up by Great Britain alleging violation of treaty obli gations. While on both these propositions as they como up In congress Individual difference will, of course, be manifested among members of all the parties, the opposition will be practically made up of republicans and progressives stand ing together as against partisan-blinded demo crats supporting whatever the administration demands. If the opposition elements can get together on these two questions of most far reaching importance, they can and w get to gether on other things as well. In Other Lands SAID IN FUN. Have all thoso 50,000 harvest Jobs been taken? Villa Is still busy trying to pose like an hon orable man of war. Ak-Sar-Bon's opening day Is fixed for June 1. Get in early and avoid the rush.

The Voice of TTimrnrn. H 'Tl . . . . .. . . I i m uneui 10 do awaKenea oy tne larK, Or lulled by falling waters," wrote the poet. Many poets have sung their paeans of praise to the lark. "The lark whoso notes do beat tho vaulty heaven, so high above our heads," wrote Shakespeare. With Milton it "startled the dull night.'' And yet again says Juliet: H I, the lark that sings so out of tune, Stralnlns harsh dlicords and unpleairin sharps, Soma say the lark makes aweet division. In which voice of the lark shall the voice of Xlagara speak? Nations are ready to be lulled by the music of gentle falling wnters, awakened from the nightmare of war by tho sweet notes of peace perfected. But our nation stands committed to this, that A nation's right to speak a nation's voice, And own no jower but a nation's choice! And this has full sway at this Niagara Falls council of mediation. It Is peace we keek, peace we love, peace wo fervently hope for, but honorable peace, not "peaco at any cost." No doubt tho majority of Americans, beseeching the God of peace to avert war, are deep In the conviction that our nation has up to now done all It honorably could do to secure the ends of Justice, honor and honorablo peace In Mexico. Wo have from tho first pursued with grave In tent the purpose of leading our neighbor out of Its turmoil and, strife onto hlghor ground, and success of the effort will be written large on the pages of history. It does not take a sleuth to uncover that 560,000 Jall-feodlng graft that our reform dem ocratic sheriff Is trying to encircle.

Suppose somebody had been duped by the rlmportod "detective,?- d0 you think tho eminent WOUthplcce of uplift and reform would be so (solemnly sllont as It Is? Mr, Mellen's testimony makog perfectly Clear the current beUef that Mr. Morgan went on the theory that one mind was sufficient to tjo all the thinking necessary for one group of railroads and banking Institutions. According to Mr. Mellen, no railroad presi dent Is entitled to a salary of more than $25 . 000 a year, yet being unwilling to admit htm', iwlf of less value than any other railroad presi dent, he reluctantly conientod to Elvo himself 560,000 a year. Omaha Abroad. A Wall street broker, J. P. Cobb, who visited Omaha during tho week, has beon quoted as "iiying some very complimentary things of this city's business stability. Ho pronounced It, In fact, the'brlgtu spot on tho map," and pre dicted greater brightness for tho future. As Mr. Cobb is Identified with real estate Investment In Omaha and koeps a closo watch on Its progross, his opinion, of course, may be regarded as of some real value, based, nt least, on more than mere hearsay knowledge. Our city Is, Indood, strong and substantial commer cially and Industrially, and yet while finding satisfaction in this, wo should not overlook nn othor criticism abroad which Is not quite as favorable aa Mr. Cobb's. If "an honest confession Is good for the bouI." then Omaha should profit by the con fession that, as we frequently hear from In vestors, wo havo given ground for a good deal of unfavorable and docldodly unprofitable criti cism of our treatment of outsldo capital. As a city we have been too Indifferent to It on more than one occasion. Nothing Is gained by attempting to Ignore the fact that foreign cap! tal has become Just a bit squeamish about ac cepting our Invitations because It has found (self on the anxious seat too often, The city I& charged rather promiscuously with being careleps of living up to the spirit, as well as the wWh. . ob,,Stlons, which reputation, whether true or false, Is not helpful to a com n .y st.l, on the threshold of its develop.

May .-To the Edi tor of The Bee: The carnival that la now being carried on at the corner nf Twenty-fourth and O streets. South Omaha, may be rredltabte In aom way and probably Is, but from the number of gambling games that are going on openly, It seems to me that It Is a disgrace to any city. .. Hkln games and gambling of all kinds ,' are being carried on at from fifteen to twenty stands and many young "auclcera" are being drawn Into them. One man told the writer that he saw one young man from the country fleeced out of 11 S at one of the gambling stands, and that he saw others beaten out of their hard earned money by th gambler. Games of chance and akin games that were kicked out of th Omaha carnival grounds last year flourish in fine shape here th'.s week. AX ETE WITNESS. Oilta It Another Blander. BROKEN BOW, Xeb May B.-To the Editor of The. Bee; All patriotic cltlrens of the United States, regardless of party, ought to stand with the president In hla efforts to avett war. The people of the t'nlted States do not want a war with Mexico or with any other nation. The military spirit is dormant and must go. CJltlxens are glad to see It. We heartily believe that (he Wilson administration Is honest In Its deslra to avert war; but. either from had advice or from a la mentable Ignorance of International law or of the ordinary usage between civil lied nations. President Wilson is con stantly making blunders which have a tendency to make war more probable. He la apparently proceeding on the false as sumption that the o-callcd constitutional Ista are a higher class of citlzena, pos sessing a higher dogrp of patriotism, having more honest purpose than the federals, when anyone at all conversant with the Mexican situation knows that It Is not true. Hla last announcement was that any settlement made by the mediators must Include a readjustment of the land laws of Mexico and a more equitable distribu tion of Its lands. Mexico ha no govern ment lands, its lands being owned by a few people( most of them tracing their titles back td the Spanish conquest ftle which have not been disturbed for SO) yenrs and which are supported by the laws of the republic. It Is a most absurd and preposterous proposition that the head of a sister republic should presume to dom'nate, control nnd dictate the private law of a sister republic which are entirety domesttc In their nature. It would have been Just a reasonable had Great Britain at the close of the civil war undertaken to say that there must be a redistribution of the land of the south and that the southern negro be given a part of the binds of their recent owner before Great Britain would recog nise our republic. From the time that Frestdent Wilson refused to recognize the llucrla governmont and tacitly at leaat aided the murderer. Villa, to the present time, the administration ha made one blunder after another. F. M. CCRRIE. IJ I i i J mi niiiBin.ibw Mwlle.ka mode her flr,t otpcarenc ct Hoyi . in nZ m."

No other railroad ha been so Jockeyed by false friend nor o bitterly assailed by open enemies. I thl what I gained by a tolerant and broad-minded readiness to dicker with the devil? If so, Mr. Mellen preached a powerful sermon when he thought he was making an epigram. Chicago Record-Herald: Today there exists an awakened public conscience that Is wiping out the "necessity" for dealing with the devil. Every dual wtth bm I a crooked deal.

In the mass of report covering last summer's war among the Balkan allies In and about Macedonia there appeared overwhelming testimony of atrocious crimes against lite and property committed by Bul garia army. These report were vigorously denied at the time, and several Americans who were In or near the stricken region affirmed the truth of Bul garia' denial. But the Greeks and Servians had more direct accea to the press of the world and their Joint accusations, persistently reiterated, 'largely moulded public opinion against the Bulgars. - The wide belief thus created 1 now shown to be grossly unjust to Bulgaria. The vindication of King Ferd inand and his people Is contained In the report of the International commission lent Into the Balkan penin sula last year on behalf of the Carnegie Peace Foundation to Investigate charges ot -atrocities made on all aide. The report, which wa made public In Xew Tork thl week, consist of some S book pages, with maps and photographs and apendlce giving the testimony of witnesses examined by the com mission. The conclusions ot the commission are that the Greek army ruthlessly spread death and desola tion everywhere, sparing neither young nor old; that the Servians were a close second to the Greek In savagery, and that the Bulgars. Instead of being the masterhand of atrocities, ranked third the comm's slon finding only three Instance of murderous slaughter chargeable to the latter. The appalUng record of man' Inhumanity piled up by the commis sion Is a startling Indictment of greed, creed am) racial savagery, which mocks the Balkan pretense of a civilization superior to the Moslem, Thr Irish Squabble. Irish home rule I moving steadily toward ac complishment, despite threats and parliamentary artifices of tho opposition. The third nd final passage by the Jlouse of Commons la expected by Tuesday next, possibly sooner. The bill then goes to the House of Lords, which Is allowed by the Parlla went act thirty day to consider the measure. Should the peer fall to act In that time, home rule becomes a law with the assent of the king. By the end of June, therefore, Ireland will have recovered In part the legislative.

Outwardly, at leaat. the nationalists and the Ulsterite maintain their 'old hostility, but there is confidence In many quarters that a round table con ference of Asqulth. Bedmoid and Carson will event ually produce satisfactory results. The revolt Jn the tory ranks against playing party politics up to the verge of civil war, and the' sudden revival of the Irish volunteer movement, springing irj. life with as much ardor as the "Volunteers of '9S." carries an Impressive warning to last ditchers. China's Presa (ing I.nrr. The first unfailing sign of usurpation of power is muzzling the press. Politicians and place hunters of over nation, republic or monarchy cordially dislike a free press and strive to muzzle It whenever pol Me. China is the latest example of the usurper, ex erting hla power to strangle the press and make Chinese new nnd vlewa carry the official label. The oldest newspaper In the world, the Peking Gazette, a government organ for hundreds of year before the downfall of the Manchu dynasty, now leads an or; gantzatlon of publisher vehemently protesting against a new law of censorship. Thl law, promul gated by the government of Tuan Shlh Kal, provides for a newspaper license fee of from J3J0 to J700 per annum, the amount being graded according to the frequency of the publication. Authority Is vested In the police of the locality .of publication, and they may pounce upon an offending publisher whenever In their Judgment published new or opinion violates the law or hurls their feelings. Publication of Ju dicial proceedings, diplomatic, military or nayal af fair; la prohibited, and attacks on the ftovemment are penalized by fines The Peking correspondent of the Xew York Post, commenting on the Chinese muz xte. explains the cause In this sentence: "The plain truth of the matter la that the power of the press, although a new phenomenon in the orient, has been a matter of deep concern to the politicians, especially In China and Japan." War Scorr and Bnilarta. War scares and bigger navy agltthlon mark the reassembling of the German Belchstag. The alleged development of the Russian army la effectively worked an a prelude to bigger appropriations. Old a the game Is, when given a semi-official tag the care produce the desired effect and la then laid aside for a year. There Is no doubt of thq deter mination of the German government to press forward both army and navy plans until both establishments ore able to cope with any contingency that may arise, east or west. The army Is believed to be In a state (if preparedness unsurpassed in Europe. In naval power only one superior I conceded. Develop ment In this line already doubles the naval strength of France, and approved plans provide for tripling Germany's ea superiority over Its western neighbor. Agitation for a bigger navy Is systematic, aggressive, practically Irresistible. The Government Xavy league la reported to have 1,600,000 member enrolled In 4,030 local branches scattered throughout the em pire. Prominent official deliver patriotic lectures under the auspice of local branches, keeping the mem ber and the local public In proper temper for sacri fices they must make to pay the bill. The needs ot the hour and the coming glories of the fatherland as master on land and sea are the vocal pictures which make the Naval league a mighty power In crippling political opposition to the gctjrnment's plans. , "A man should always put duty before pleasure."
