Although the Tufted State l not t war, flic army linn

The arbitrary eatnbliahment of the illegal ceniondiin along
the border in an inntiuice.
Correnpondents who want to send news from the Mexi
can bolder or interior are obliged to give bond for $2000,
put up u certified cheek for $1000 ami join the army. Ue
liig noldiei-H, they are obliged to submit to all military rulen
and regulations and nothing can be sent not agreeable to
officers in command. The alternat ive i to stay at home.
If the nation were at war a limited censorship would
undoubtedly be authorized upon purely military news, but
in times of peace, army officers have no authority to in
terfere with news gathering or sending. It is pure usur
pation. Although a minor instance, it shows what the
nation can expect from militarism.
Censorship on military news was first practiced by the
Japanese in the iiusso-Jiipaiif.se war. They were first
aUopted in Europe by (lermany, and then by other Euro
pean nations. The army war college drew up similar reg
ulations for the United States in case of war, which were
approved by Secretary Garrison. They were arbitrarily
put in effect in the occupation of Vera Cruz and now ill
the pursuit of Villa. In neither ease was war declared or
tho censorship legalized. The precedent established is
dangerous and un-American.
The navy under Secretary Daniels is more demoeratie.
$q bond is needed and no enlistment enforced aboard war
Ships in times of peace. The navy has not yet attempted
unwarranted Interference with the Ireedoin ol the press
always the first action of tyranny.
The censorship has already accomplished some things
it has succeeded in concealing for a few davs the crim
inal inefficiency of the troops guarding the border, who
were solely reponsiblo for the success of Villa's raid upon
Columbus. The Carranza government had reported Villa
heading for the border and warned United Slates forces to
bo on the lookout. The day preceding the raid, Villa was
reported in the news dispatches as twelve miles from
' The censorship concealed for a week the fact that de
spite Villa's proximity, no sentries were posted, and the
troops asleep and unprepared. The censorship concealed
the reaspns why the two machine guns "tailed to work."
It concealed the tact that Villa look these two machine
guns back with him along with over a hundred horses be
longing to the United Slates cavalry troops stationed at
Columbus. It concealed the reasons necessitating three
(lays' delay in the pursuit by troops who have been on the
ground and supposed to be proparud for such couiiu
goncies. It concealed the reason why ifiie of the officers in
a minor degree responsible, committed suicide.
As a means of temporarily concealing the blunders of
tho army, the censorship is the success military censor
ships usually are. So we have officers in possession of
(olograph and telephone 'offices, reading dispatches and
stopping aulos containing dispatches, lest "military infor
mation which might assist the enemy" be wired the fugi
tive. Villa fleeing over the wireless wilderness.
LABOR'S FUTILE PROTEST
OUKGON'S governor recently appeared before a meet
ing of the employers, at Portland and protested the
proposed reduction of the hours of women workers in
stores and factories from fifty-four hours a week to forty
eight horn's. His vehement enthusiasm against protecting
the female toilers brought forth the following resolution
from the central labor council of Portland.
