Carranza is in a tight box. If he insists on the Amer
icans withdrawing and they consent to do so, he will have
a revolution on his hands with Felix Diaz at its head,
and perhaps considerable American money back of it. If
he does not insist on the army being recalled, he is liable
to lose his standing and be deposed. He cannot handle
the situation without American help and if he accepts
this his people will go back on him. He stands to lose
either way, and so is temporizing, hoping something may
turn up besides another revolution, or Villa. About the
only difference it can make to him is that if he stands
in with the Americans he will go out of office as an ex
president, and if he goes against them he will retire as an
THE BALLOT IS NOT A CURE-ALL
The suffragette leaders who visited Salem Saturday
advanced the idea that with women given the ballot the
rendition of children and everybody else would be bef-
tpiwl. and the world be one ereut clad song. This sounds.
well, but it is not borne out by the facts. The ballot does
not cure all things, in fact cures but few of the evils that
oppress mankind. The workingmen have had the ballot
ever since the government was formed yet no one will as
sert that all the bad things surrounding their condition
have been removed.
No one will venture the assertion that the laborer's
life is a bed of roses simply because the ballot is his. The
.slums of the big cities are abundant proof that the ballot
has not helped' the condition of the class that inhabits
them. The workingman goes on strike to better his con
dition instead of trying to better it at the ballot box.
We are not intimating that women should not have the
right to vote, but simply pointing out that if they expect
the world to be remodeled or to run in different grooves
because women are enfranchised, they are due to have a
very rude awakening.
We do not doubt the sincerity of the distinguished
women who are touring the continent in their efforts in
behalf of suffrage, but note the fact that among men,
and in every party, there are enthusiasts who think the
laws, especially the election laws, can accomplish all
things. Every objectionable thing that comes up starts
some one into a lawmaking scheme to correct it, generally
without understanding the matter and the result is that
this country is burdened with some hundreds of thousands
of laws which no one knows anything about or wants to,
but which remain dead letters on the statute books,
monuments to someone's belief in the omnipotence of the
law as a cure all. ,
There is no reason why women should not have the
same rights as to taking part in the affairs of govern
ment as man. The people of Oregon have admitted this,
and are not sorry for it. At the same time no change in
-affairs can be noted as following their enfranchisement.
Of course the new arrangement has not been in effect
long, but that there will be any material change in the
manner of running the government on this account, or
any betterment of social conditions by reason of it is not
probable. The good will remain good and the bad will
follow in their old steps. Church.bells will ring as usual
and joyriders will burn up the roads and gasoline, just
as they did before.
Theft and crookedness will not be banished and vice
will flaunt its silks and sealskins before the calico ami
No sooner did some other company start a railroad
survey through the Minto pass than the Southern Pacific
which has had it located "for many years suddenly
learned that it wanted this same pass, and that very
badly. This shows that corporations are much like men.
What they have, or can get easily, they do not want; and
what someone else wants, that they too, desire. The Min
to pass could have remained unrailroaded for fifty years,
so far as the Sputhern Pacific was concerned, had it not
learned that someone else was liable to use it.
Holding that there is no special law governing the
immigration of Japanese, such as regulate the entrance
of Chinese into the United States, Federal Judge Dooling
at San Francisco yesterday, dismissed the deportation
proceedings against a 17-year-old Japanese boy. This
decision coming as it does while the "Gentleman's agree
ment" with Japan is under discussion, the decision is of
much more than usual interest.

The May Queens were crowned in hundreds of cities
yesterday and the attractive ceremonials and gala doings
are a thing of the past. It might be mentioned in passing,
that this is the oldest celebration of a religious character,
for that is what it was some thousands of years ago, of
which we of these modern days have any history.
It sounds like the good old days o fthe long ago to
read about the conventions over in Washington and the
good times the politicians are having. Yet there is the
rift in the lute that deadens the old-time harmonies. The
state is dry. What would the old time conventions have
been without'the presence of John Barleycorn?

Our visitors fondly believe that with the ballot in the
hands of the women of the anti-suffrage states all evils
will be eradicated. We most earnestly and sincerely wish
their Utopian dreams might come true, but alas! like all
other dreams they are made of flimsy stuff, that like the
mists of morning vanish when the light strikes them.

Italians were arrested for distributing anarchistic liter

would be just now a national calamity, being promoted
and an amicable adjustment reached is rather bright.
