GARRANZA'S reply to the American note demanding
the release of Consul Jenkins indicates that the Mex-
i ican government is following the same procedure as the
j United States would follow in similar caseshas followed
m numerous instances..
Jenkins is accused of kidnapping and of perjury be
fore a Mexican court. He is held in jail pending investi
gation and hearing, merely because he refuses to put up
the moderate bail of 1000 pesos (about $500) which would
free him, prefering instead to secure liberty through the
demand of the United States governmnt, which would
probably mean immunity. The deliberate pose of martyr
to Mexican perfidy is one that raises suspicion as to inno
cence. , :
At least this is the Mexican version and it will require
official investigation to justify interference by the Unted
States. Occasionally a consul, even an American consul,
goes astray and takes advantage of his position to break
the laws of the land he is stationed in and when he does,
he cannot expect his country to go to war to ?ave him.
In Mexico there is so much' prejudice against Ameri
cans that accusation frequently means conviction and a
fair hearing is impossible. That may be the case in the
present instance, for none of- the Mexicans is more pre
judiced against Americans than the pompous president of
the southern republic.
On account of the propaganda in progress to force
intervention, all stories about Mexico and Mexicans must
be taken with a grain of salt and an official investigation
only can establish the truth about Consul Jenkins.

T HE strong arm of the government reached forth last
winter, seized numerous alien "reds" in Seattle and
other coast cities and rushed them by special armed train
to Ellis Island, where they were held for deportation. The
aid of the courts was invoked bv svmnntriPttV wenH-W
parlor anarchists to delay actionbut the deportation or
ders were sustained. The anarchists, however, were never
deported, but paroled by Commissioner Frederick C.
Howe, in charge of immigration work at Ellis Island, up
on their promise to appear when wanted but of course
Thus the work of the department of justice in ridding
the country of dangerous avowed revolutionists was nul
lified by Howe and the alien reds freed to continue their
propaganda of industrial unrest, This action resulted in
Howe's dismissal from office and a congressional inves
tigation of his regime is now in progress.
Mr. Howe is the author of several books on democ
racy, which portray his radical tendencies. Before the
war, he pictured German efficiency in government as a
model for the world. An avowed pacifist and the writer
of numerous anti-war articles, he was active in peace
propaganda when the war, was declared. If he aided his
country in its struggle for Victory, it was in too obscure
a way to receive public attention.
Whether or not Mr. Howe was pro-German, like most
of the so-called "intellectuals" of anarchy, there is no
question of his being pro-bolshevist in tendencies and sym
pathies. He never should have been placed in a position
where he could influence the immigrant against the coun
try of his adoption and thwart the will of the"government
by giving aid and comfort to those seeking its destruction.
The "reds" held for deportation at Ellis' Island are
on a hunger strike. It is hoped the authorities let them
starve themselves and so rid the world of a menace.
