THE CRIPPLE'S LICENSE
TMIERE can bo but little doubt that there Is much
method in the madness of lluerta, in his treatment of
the United States. ith his government tottering under
the repeated .successes of the insurgents, American inter
vention looms like the straw to a drowning man.
ITuerta believes that any armed invasion of Mexican
territory by this government will solidify his country
against the invaders.
In the event of an American invasion the situation
would be exactly analogous to that which prevailed in the
nnlippines when those islands were tnvaded tit the outset
of the Spanish-American war. The insurgents there, tis in
Mexico at the present time, had the Situation well in hand
and would have been successful without outside aid. In
the Philippines the American invasion was, at the outset.
welcomed by the insurgents. There is no reason why this
situation, in the event of American invasion, would not
also prevail in Mexico. Hut after that, would not the Mex
icans as a unit resent the American intrusion jus did the
Broken and crippled Mexico at this time would be a
most easy victim lor a great power tiKe tno united estates.
and it is easy for the strong to seize upon a slight pretext
to provoke a war with a weaker foe that can only end in
the complete subjugation of the latter, to no great credit
or advantage to the former.
-xiuxico is wasuing out us sins in moon, as did this coun
try in the 'GO's. The end of Jluertaism is at hand and needs
no American intervention to consummate it.
lluerta is simply exercising the cripple's license to
abuse the strong, and he should be left to his late, which
Carranza and Villa are better qualified to fittingly admin
ister according to their standards of civilization!
GOOD THEATER ATTRACTIONS
'TULE MAIL TRIBUNE, having vainly awaited a proc-
lamation from the local Drama league commending
the merits of most meritorious plays when Med ford is for
tunate enough to be offered the opportunity of seeing
them, takes this occasion to call public attention to the
fact that Margaret IlliiiL'ton, who plavs toniuht in "Within
the Law," is the best attraction yet booked at the Page,
not excepting the opening production of Maude Adams.
Another attraction of merit is Peggy 6 'Neil in " Peg o'
My Heart," scheduled for Wednesday night. In the mean
while University of Oregon students appear in "The Pro
fessor's Love Story" Saturday evening, said to be si charm
ing production and Evelyn Nesbit Thaw, who needs no
press notices, public curiosity being sufficient to pack the
house wherever she appeal's.
It fs unfortunate that the theater trust, or whoever it
is that books the theatrical atractions, sends them in
bunches, so that it is either a feast or a famine, instead of
uniform distribution. The theater will be dark for weeks,
then lit up for a continuous week. We get our musical
comedies packed into the first few weeks of the season.
three or lour a week sometimes and nothing musical the
balance of the year. The local theater managers arc not at
all to blame they have to take what is sent, and it is up
to ttie pumic to snow us appreciation ot good plavs when
we do get them so that more of the same class will" be sent.

that In many cases no discretion Is

Nevertheless tourists and amateur
scientists aro continually endeavoring
to Introduce additions to tho flora

Tho clabslc lestanco ot misguided
enthusiasm Is tho introduction In
ISC!) of tho destructive gypsy moth
by u scientist named Trouvulot.
Trouvolot, a Frenchman by birth, nn
astronomer in Harvard; unfortunate
ly he was nls.Q an ardent entomolo
gist who had devoted much of his
leisure tlnio to tho consideration of
tho bilk worm Industry. In uu evil
hour bo conceived tho Idea of breed
ing a hardier worm which might
withstand tho diseases which were
then ravaging rearing establishments
In France, and In pursuit ot this pur
pose Imported some gipsy moths, In
tending to cross them with somo of
tho natlvo species found In tho U, S.
It Is so chanced, how over, thnt ho
loft tho window or his study In Med
ford, Mbbh,, open one day. When ho
returned a mass of eggs laid by the
gipsy visitors had disappeared a
parently It had blown out of tho open
window. At this point rouvelot's ex
periments stopped. 1 heir results
did not. Tlioy aro still with us and
havo cost tho country millions of dol
lars. For twenty years tho gipsy
moth attracted no attention. The
pcoplo of .Med ford may havo won
dered at tho destruction of their
trccB, but tho da m ago remained local
and tho outsldo world know nothing
of It. In 1889, however, tho pest
suddenly becamo prominent. Since
that time a bitter warfare has been
waged against it, but tho victory Is
not yet won.
Strangely enough, the automobile
has proved an ally of tho moth. Not
only does It stir up currents of air
which scatter the fallen and Infected
foliage but It actually carries insects
many miles Into districts which have
hitherto been Immune.
