amendment, to Borrow money on school

thereby secure funds (or farm loans,
at tow rates of Interest.
" J "The present Irreducible school fund

curity consists of never less than three
times the amount of the loan. For ex
ample, the M.000.000 now loaned Is se
cured by approximately $1, 000,000
worth1 of real estate, consisting of
farm lands. This means In effect
hat there are S1S.009.000 worth of se-
untles lying tn the vaults of the statn

Ihe land board agents a fee of one per

amounts to one-tenth of one per cent

eciare that this sum would amply

"It is true that the state will have
0 guarantee payment, but the infin
itesimal risk of loss Is Indicated by
h fact that during the lam 20 years
the board haa had practically the en
tire fund loaned out and there have
been no net losses. The few inconsid
erable losses in principal have been
inade up out of the Interest account."

N. M., May 27. (U. P.) Banditry in
this section of Mexico is believed to
have been ended by the killing of VII
liata Leaders Cervantes and Beaucome
in Thursday's 'fight near Las Cruces.
Significantly, it was unofficially be
lieved around General Pershing's head
quarters that the Carranzista troops
should now have no trouble maintain

ers really mean business.
There has been no disorder since the
engagement at OJo Asules May 6, when
a squadron of the Sixteenth United

Hulett, whose shots killed both ban
dits. The bodies of the two Villistas were
brought into camp here today and
positively identified. The corpse of
Cervantes was viewed by a brother
and over a score of friends brought
irom rvamiquipa. Tne bodies were
later removed- to Namiauipa and
turned over to Mexicans.

It is likely that during the funerals
of the two men precautions win be
taken both tn camp here and br the

prevent any outbreak by any Villistas
who may be hiding In ths vicinity.

Infantry officers expressed them
selves as delighted with ths success of
the first engagement in which the ex

especially in view of the prominence

Japanese Lines to
Be Broad Gauge
Tokio, May 27. (I. N. 8.1 A com
mittee appointed by the Japanese gov
ernment has reported in ravor of
changing the railroad lines of the
country into standard gauge, of four
feet eight and one-half Inches. The
nresent inure Is three feet six lnohes.
The estimated cost Is $701,000,000 and
.the work is to be completed by 19S.
The new scheme has obvious
strategical merits. It win enable
Japan to rush troops to the ports in
great numbers rapidly, and if there
should be a scarcity of rolling stock
in China the new stock which must
be made for the broadened lines could
be taken with the troops. In the
srent of trouble with China the flrt
more of the Chinese would bo to with
draw all their locomotives to the in
terior. Japan has now not an engine
nor a carriage which would run on a
Chinese line. If her rolling stock
were made the same' gauge as the
Chinese she would be able to make
