The Mexican foreign minister, Senor I'ortlllo y Rojas, an nounced It would be Impossible to agree to the demand of the United States that the flag be saluted uncon ditionally, because that flag wns not Insulted, as It was not flying from the launch, and because the murines were set free even before an investigation and the officer responsible for the ar rest was himself arrested and held for trial. Th foreign minister here announced i thnt the M xlcnn government would agree that both flags he saluted, the American flag first and then the Man Icnn flag, this arrangement to he made by a protocol signed by American Charge d'Afl'nircs Nelson O'Rhough nessy and the Mexican foreign mi i. is tar. The United Stotes government, Senor I'ortlllo asserted, has refused permission to Charge O'Shoughnessy to sign such a protocol and demanded an unconditional salute by Mexico, which Mexico felt waa Incompatible with her dignity. 01311 NOTICE TOR PUBLICATION Department of the Interior, U. 8.

REPUBLICAN VOTERS SHOULD BEWARE Party Should Be Represented on National Committee By a Republican The Republicans or Oregon are en titled to have a Republican named as the National Republican Committee man from this State. C. W. Ackeraon, who claims to be a Republican, Is a candidate. He registered aa a Progres sive January 8, 1914. Then signed petl. tlop or H. W. Coe to be Progressive National Committeeman. Then can celled his registration aa a Progres sive and registered as a Republican and Immediately riled hla candidacy for membership on Republican Nation al Committee. Has been an Intimate and convenient understudy or the Pro gressive National Committeeman and aeems now to be In combination with him In an attempt to shanghai tha Republican organization. His candi dacy la being actively backed by par ties hostile to the Republican party and having personal interests and pri vate personal grudges to serve. Ills erratic and excitable temperament haa frequently led him to flood the col umns of the press with violent attacks upon the Republican party and vicious personal abuse or prominent Republi cans and lite long residents or the State It la a grave nbuse tor pnrtles who are not Republican to register aa such. It Is a graver abuse tor outsiders to attempt the capture of a political par ty to gratify a personal grudge and to promote party discord. It Is an abuse against which fair minded men of all parties will rlso in protest. We can norr have a reunited party by puahlng to the front political hotheads and men who are political reformers simply for the sake of office. Having been a Republican only twenty-four hours when he announced his candl ducy for the highest honorary position In the gift ot the party, Is some Indi cation ot what Mr. Ackeraon'a motive wue In reentering as a Republican. As Hon. Ralph K. Williams Is the only Republican who Is a candidate for Republican National Couimltteemun, . feel warranted in nrgltig till loyal Repul "cans in the stale to give him tin Ir earnest and enthusiastic support.
