to congress he says:

penco In America until (Setieral Muerla has siirremled his usurped authority . " , '' ' ',
in Mexico; until It is umlerstood on all lintm. Indeed, that such pretemleil
go,vernmeuts will not lie countenanced or dealt with by the goxerument of
the United States,
Wo aro tho friends of constitutional government In America; we are
more than Its friends, we are Its champions, because In no other way can
our neighbors, to whom wo would wish In every way to make proof of our
friendship, work out their own development In peace and lllort.
Mexico lmi no government. The attempt to maintain one at the City
of Mexico has broken down, nnd a mere military despotism has been set
up which has hardly more than the semblance of national authority. It
originated In the usurpation of Vlctorltxno lluerta, who. after n brief at
tempt to piny the part of Constitutional President, has nt last cast aside
even tho pretense ot legal right and declared himself dictator.
As a consequence, a condition of affairs now exists In Mexico which ha,
mmlc It doubtful whether even the most elementary and fundamental rights
either of her own people or of the citizens of oUier countries resident within
her territory can long be successful! safeguarded, and which threatens, if
long continued, to lufperll the interests of pence, order, and tolerable life In
tho lauds Immediately to the south ot us.
Hum If the usurper bad succeeded In his purpose. In despite or the con
stitution of the republic and the rights of Its people, he would have set up
nothing but a precarious and hateful power, which could have lasted but
a little while, and whose eventual downfall would hixxo left the country In
a more deporable condition than ever.
Hut he has not succeeded, lie has forfeited the respect and the moral
support even of those' who were at one time willing to see hltn succeed.
Little by little ho has been complete-! Isolated. 11 a little eery da his
power and prestige are crumbling and tho collapse Is not far away
Ve shall not. I believe, be obliged to alter our policy of watchful wait
ing. And then, when the end comes, we shall hope to nee constitutional or
der restored In distressed Mexico b the'eoncert and energy of such of her
leaders as prefer the llbert) of tholr people to their own ambitious.
This aecuratelv snnis un tho situation. "Watchful
waiting'' soonis tho only possible policy that will prevent
a bloody and needless war. feo tar it has succeeded. I he
usurper who seized tho pov?r through assassination anil
has maintained it by wholesale slaughter is nearly down
and out. Us finish is in sight, without Wilson's having in
volved the nation in war or having invaded a friendly na

courage to withstand the clamor for war than it does to
resist it. lie playing the part of licawber in the cause
of humanity because it is the proper time to ''wait for
something to turn up.' There may come a time for action
but it is not here yet.

of Latin Republics, qualifies him to discuss the matter, in
a recent address justified the administration's policy in

GREAT deal of sentimental slush is being indulged in
throughout the nation over the prospective execution
of Mrs. Bessie Wakefield, convicted in C'onnecticutt of the
murder of her husband.
Mrs. "Wakefield did not participate in the killing, but
she planned it with her paramour, who executed the wife's
diabolical plot. Those who sign petitions of clemency be
cause of opposition to the principle of capital punishment
are not criticised, for they sign all petitions for clemency
regardless of the personalty of the culprit. Those who
sign because of the sex of the homicide or the ebulitions of
the sob sisters of the press are properly subject to criti
Strange tp say, many of those most active in behalf of
the murderess arc awJent sunragists whose creed is equal
ity of the sexes. Advocating equal opportunity in the con
stitution and before the law, they hysterically plead sex as
the reason for unequal punishment of crime.
"I never had a chance. ,E never know my rights,"
Mrs. "Wakefield is reported as saying as her mother,
"folded her to her heart." And .straightway interviews
galore frotn prominent club women appear in behalf of
giving her a chance.
Mi's. "Wakefield's story is one of the short and simple
sgandals of the poor. Married at 1J3, the mother of tw
children, her husband a drunken brute, she left liiin to
live with another man, who she afterwards inspired to
murder her spouse. And now this mother of 2o pleads as
her excuse that "she never had a chance."
The murderess means she never had any moral sense,;
that her own mother failed to inculcate in her sense ()"'
right and wrong, that wife-hood and even motherhood did
not dovclopc it and only the shadow of the gallows created
it, and it will probably fade as the shadow lades.
In other words, she is one of the numerous army of de
fectives that fill our asylums, penftentiarics and scaffolds,
a victi mof the sins of sociotv sacrificed to save societv.
