With Carranza suddenl ydiscovering that an army of

Mexico, and sending it in a body accompanied by a strong
force of artillery to do the work, it behooves General
Pershing to keep a close watch and also his powder dry.

follow: Earl A. William", Kreeater,
The Colonel in his speech to a delegation of regular
republicans in New York yesterday made an open bid
for the republican nomination. The delegation told him
thov intonilfil tn siiniinrt him. and he expressed his opin
ion so plainly that there can be no mistake as to the per-j
son whom he had in minu wnen ne spuwe. mai iiaun
was Hughes. He almost openly called attention to the
fact that no one knew where Justice Hughes stood on any
subject, and in this connection said: "Any man at this
time of crisis, who is not aggressively, openly and
specifically for these principals, is against them, and
every patriotic man should treat our public servants on
The things alluded to by the Colonel were "American
ism, and preparedness." He could not have more dis
tinctly called attention to the utter silence on these, or
for that matter any other subjects, on the part of Hughes
without mentioning him by name. .
Now the question is what stand will the Colonel take
when the convention meets? Evidently Justice Hughes
intends saying nothing until the nomination is tendered
him, if it is done, and Mr. Roosevelt has served notice that
; he for one will not stand for this, and advises "every
patriotic man" to take the same course.
It necessarily follows that Mr. Hughes will have to
make public his position on these questions before, the
Colonel and his lollowers win consent 10 ins. m.uunauuu,
even providing they would consent to it at all. Roosevelt
is a shrewd politician and he has cleverly placed Justice
Hughes in a position where he cannot remain silent and
expect the nomination, at least with the consent of the
Roosevelt wing of the party. ,
The Colonel has challenged him to come out into the
open and state where he stands on these two questions
at least, and at the same time has served notice on the
party that the favorite must do this or take the conse
quences. In other words the Colonel threatens to re
enact the campaign of 11)12 unless his demands are com
The situation is decidedly interesting to the general
public and most especially to the leaders and favorite
sons soon to have a family reunion at Chicago.
There is an olden saying that it ill becomes the pot to
call the kettle blackface. The trunk murder mystery in
Portland has apparently dropped from the minds of the
officers of the law, and the recent murder of Mrs. Jen
nings and probably of Fred Ristman, seem in a fair way
to pass into oblivion with the muruer unuiscoveicu.
At the same time here in Salem not long ago a woman
was murdered and after a few futile attempts to discover
the murderer, the matter was apparently dropped.
Whether it is due to paying too much attention to
Latin, Greek, German, music, art, athletics, domestic
science, playgrounds or the countless other things now
considered necessary in teaching the young idea how to
shoot, it is impossible to say, but the fact remains that
the pupils of the public schools cannot spell the every day
English words. A considerable less attention to fads and
a little more to teaching English might make for improve
ment in the public schools everywhere.
Yesterday the house of commons voted an additional
war credit of $1,500,000,000. This brings England's total
war debt to $11,900,000,000, or about four times that
created by the North in the civil war. Premier Asquith,
in asking for the credit, stated England was expending
$21,000,000 a day on the war, though part of this ex
pense was caused by loans to the allies, without which
they could not continue the struggle.

Twenty-four hours after his arrest, William Smith
was on his way from Spokane to the penitentiary at Wal

with gagging, assaulting and robbing two women in their
homes. He was taken into court by a back door, heavily
guarded, as officers feared an attempt to lynch him,
pleaded guilty and was rushed to the train. If this kind
of speedy justice could be administered generally therf
would be much less crime. It is not the severity of the
