The Oregonian'a attitude on the
Mexican question reminds us of trying
to cure a plague patient by taking pos
session of his house and sleeping in
his bed. The following excerpt illus
trates it as well as another:
"MeManus wss evidently a brave
man whose confidence in the United
States had not been destroyed, though
it hsd been severely tried. It is no
reproach to his memory that he fought
nopeiessiy sgainst an army; It Is a re
proach to the United States that our
flag is so little respected in Mexico
that an army of bandits dared to at
tack an American citizen."
Mexico has the plague. Ergo, it be
comes the duty of Uncle Sam to seize
and chastise the patient, rule his dis
ordered household and expose himself
"The greatest good to the greatest
number" of our own people demands
that we keep out of Mexico as long as
w possibly can, and let th sullen pa
tient alone to die or recover aa Provi
dence wills. Because th lives and
property of comparatively few Ameri
can eitizens are endangered, we are
not obliged to risk thousands of other
lives, entail the enormous expense of
an invasion and shoulder a burden thst
w might hsve to carry forever. The
